About For Everly.

Determined to overcome a dark and tragic past, college student Everly Wallace is only months away from earning her degree in physical therapy. She’s consumed with school, caring for her ailing grandfather, and figuring out how to pay the next bill. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but it just might be the one thing she needs.

Major League pitcher Cole Parker hasn’t fought for anything in his life. He went from a privileged upbringing to a multimillion dollar All-Star career. But when his pitching shoulder starts to give him trouble at only twenty-four years old, he faces the possibility of his injury becoming public knowledge and costing him everything.

In a desperate bid to save his career, Cole decides to hire someone to treat his injury, someone who will keep things off the record and out of the media. He finds the perfect solution in Everly. As mysterious as she is beautiful, she provides an enticing distraction from his pain. Soon, physical therapy is the last thing on his mind.

When an act of betrayal brings the truths they both fear to light, Cole will have to fight for the first time in his life…not just for his career, but for Everly’s love.

About Meant for Her.

Photographer Sierra Stratton views the world through a lens all her own. She has an uncanny sense about people, something that often causes her trouble. When she meets the sexy and brooding Evan Dorsey, her intuition tells her he’s suffering, and she wants to be the one to help him.

Evan isn’t open to help from anyone, however. His focus is on his Major League career and making himself as marketable as possible for his upcoming free agency. He plans to ride out the season in Atlanta and then sign with another team, away from the painful memories that haunt him.

Someone’s eager to send him on his way, too. Between anonymous threats and equipment sabotage, it’s clear he’s earned himself an enemy along the way. To him, it’s one more sign that he’s right to move on.

But Sierra threatens his conviction. Her contagious smile proves hard to resist, as does her kiss. She tempts him in ways he never anticipated, making him question his plans for the first time. If he’s not careful, she might just convince him that he’s meant for her.

Excerpt from I Do

During their travels, Tate had met other Mercesti like Zachariah and his chosen class leaders. But then there were Mercesti like these, she thought sourly, bringing up her nunchucks to block a slicing sword. Mercesti who refused to fall in line with Zachariah’s leadership. Mercesti who thought they should have the right to take anything they wanted, including the lives of any Estilorians who got in their way.

Mercesti who stood between her and her wedding day.

This group was larger than most of the others had been, Tate observed as she used Tiege’s bent knee to launch herself at another opponent. They were also more trained and organized.

Their leader was a tall, dark-skinned male named Cain. Zachariah had barely approached Cain and introduced himself before the aggressive male and his followers raised their weapons to fight. It seemed they had already heard of Zachariah’s ascension to elder and had been seeking him out to challenge him. Now, Cain and Zachariah were battling across the forest clearing where the combat had initiated.

Fighting this group was the last thing Tate had wanted, though. She had even asked Zachariah to pass them by. After all, she, Zachariah, Tiege, Ariana, and the Mercesti who had been invited to the wedding were on their way to the protected area surrounding her family’s home. Her mother and aunts were all waiting for them to arrive to begin the celebration.

Her stubborn avowed could not be swayed, however. Tate wasn’t actually that upset about the delay. She was proud of Sparky’s determination to clean up his class and integrate them with the nine other Estilorian classes. But lord, she was tired.

She had lost count of the number of small battles they had waged since Eirik’s defeat. It felt as though they finished one battle, got a few hours of sleep, and headed on to the next. Yes, there were days when they met up with friendly Mercesti and took some time to introduce themselves and get to know them, but those moments hardly made up for the time they were fighting.

We’ll wrap this up soon enough, Beautiful.

Tate heard her avowed’s thought as she spun out of the way of an axe’s downward swing. Her gaze lifted to Zachariah’s across clearing. She realized she had unintentionally broadcasted her thoughts to him.

I know, Sparky, she returned.

If she could keep herself focused, she privately added.

Getting into the Mood

I love Halloween. There’s something about a holiday that’s meant to scare the bejeezus out of you that appeals to me. Kind of makes me wonder why I don’t write horror rather than YA fantasy/romance…but I digress.

I remember when I was a child, walking around the Chicago suburb where I grew up with my brothers and a host of neighborhood children bearing plastic pumpkins by my side. I was nearly always dressed in a costume handmade by my mom…Holly Hobby, Wonder Woman, an Indian (we didn’t know the term “Native American” back then), a witch, etc. And as we finished up our trick-or-treating for the night, I clearly remember approaching The House.

You know the one. The house with the life-sized monster installed on the roof with a soldering iron. The house with horrifying screams issuing from a doorway that belches fog from its inky depths. The house that draws you in to receive handfuls of candy while doing its best to make you pee your pants.

That house.

When I got too old to trick-or-treat, my mom decided to create The House in the neighborhood. We’d sit on her big, country front porch with scary sounds blaring on the outdoor speakers. We’d dress up in scary costumes and have skeletons that rappelled down ropes to careen toward unsuspecting neighborhood kids. And, of course, we’d have full goody bags to hand out to those who braved the long walk up the drive.

I really miss those days. I barely had enough time this year to scrounge in the garage and pull out some well-worn decorations. Fortunately, my daughter is only five and not yet old enough to remark on the utter lameness of the décor. She was content to stick out light-up plastic pumpkins on the front porch and consider her work done. As long as she gets to wear her Spiderman costume (not handmade, by the way) on the big day, she’ll be happy.

It occurred to me last night as I watched a recorded Ghost Hunters and saw the SyFy channel’s “31 Days of Halloween” logo that Halloween is going to come and go before I’ve really even experienced it this year. There was a time where I would have made a point to go shopping before October 1st with my husband and daughter to pick up one new and special decoration. I would normally have created a list of the local Halloween events and made a plan of attack to fit a few in. We’d have bags of Halloween candy well in advance (just in case, of course—not to nibble on between now and the 31st).

This year, I haven’t made time to enjoy those things. I could list excuses, but instead I think it’s time to change that. I want to get in the mood! I’ve got close to two weeks to get my scare on, and I’d love your help. I’ve made a Top Ten list (in random order) of movies and books that really got to me over the years:

1. Stephen King’s It
2. Saw
3. A Nightmare on Elm Street
4. Scream
5. Dean Koontz’s Phantoms
6. The Exorcist
7. 28 Days Later
8. The Ring
9. Children of the Corn
10. Halloween

Would you please help me add to this list? What should I read or watch this weekend to get me more into the Halloween mood?
