Welcome gift + Giveaway

Hello readers!

Many of you are new to us, and we would like to give you a free copy of a short story we wrote back in 2012. (Even if you've been with us since the beginning, you are more than welcome to download the story.)

One of the best things about our career as a self-published author is the direct engagement with our readers.

So if you want to get in touch with us, please do. You might have a question about one of our books. Maybe you have an idea for a future Forbidden couple, antagonist, or storyline. Or you might have a general question about writing or publishing. Or maybe you've spotted something you think we could do better.

Whatever it is, please drop us a line. We’d love to hear from you!

Now…the fun stuff.

Summer Heat is a short story about a woman who has to return home to be a bridesmaid in her step-sister’s wedding…to her ex-boyfriend. It’s a fun, contemporary, 4,000-word story. It’s the definition of short and sweet.

You can claim your copy of Summer Heat here.

Also, Brazen Bookshelf is hosting an Instafreebie paranormal romance giveaway. Lots of great FREE books to claim! It's summer, get that TBR list piled up. And the best part is you can enter to win a Kindle Fire HD 8 with Alexa!

 

We try not to send you updates very often, just when there is a new book in the works or a deal that we think you might like to know about.  Sometimes we join other authors in giveaways, like above, and we always want to let you know about them for a chance to win or get free books. We've participated in a lot lately so we've been putting out more emails than normal. It's not always this way.

Remember, we love hearing from you. Don’t hesitate to come visit us at our website or our Facebook page.

We hope you enjoy our short story and that you pick up some great books from the giveaway!

Happy reading!

How about a Dirty sample?

Hello to all our beautiful readers, new and old-

We have semi-exciting news for you today. We just send Forbidden Addiction off to our editor! That means when we get it back from her we get to send out our ARCs to all of those who signed up. We hope you're a little excited about that. We certainly are!

Also, there is less than a month left until the release of Dirty, our first contemporary romance! We can't wait to share it with you so we decided we wanted to give out a sample of the book to you all. And it's not just a little blurb, it's the first four chapters! If you are interested, you can download your copy here and enter the password SummerFling. Just, please, remember this is completely unedited since our editor still has our manuscript, so please keep that in mind when reading it. We will not publish the book the way it is right now so please don't judge too harshly. Also, the blurb is a temporary one, although that won't make too much of difference.

We can't wait to hear what you think, and don't forget to check out the giveaways below!

Until next time! Happy reading!

Apologies and Giveaways

Dear readers-

Sorry about the last newsletter. I sent it out with no notes or anything. We've been so busy trying to finish up Forbidden Addiction that I cut and pasted the information and hit send. Apologies!

The good news is we've sent Forbidden Addiction to our beta readers and then it goes to our editor after that. We already got our first response back yesterday. I wish we could share with you the whole email but it has too many spoilers so I'll pick a few lines.

"Wow! I was SO happy when I got up this morning and checked my email!
I LOVED IT! I'm only sorry I've already finished it!
I love how you make the reader feel Phoenix's desire to be a mother/ her misery at herself for not being truly happy around Anaya and Vaughn's babies and around Kenzie's pregnancy and her heartache when she thinks she failed. Very moving.
I love this series! They are all so good, I can't pick a favorite!
Vaughn's reaction to Phoenix's heat scene was hilarious !!!
Thanks so much for letting be read it! I think I will go back and read it all again!

Sincerely addicted!"

Hopefully, you will enjoy it as much as this reader did. 

Until then, we have some more giveaway information for you. With a chance to win some pretty big Amazon gift cards and get free books! Also, don't forget to share with others who might be interested!

Happy reading!

Confession time…

Dear readers-

Normally, our newsletters come from the two of us, but today you are just going to be hearing from me, Renae. As our mailing list climbs, our fans on Facebook increase, and more and more questions about the next book’s release date come in, I feel like I must come clean and confess something to you all.

I fear that I am going to disappoint you, dear readers.

What do I mean by this? Well, as an avid romance reader, I have been on the receiving side of that endless wait for that book you’ve been pinning for in a series. You know that book. The one with the characters you’ve been wanting to read about for what seems like forever. As more and more people read our books, I have come to realize that Kenzie and Sawyer’s story is this to them.

I’ve read some series where the book was everything I thought it would be, and I’ve read somewhere the book was anti-climactic and I was left feeling a little deflated. I don’t want to do this to you. I realize it’s impossible to please everyone, but right now I fear that I will leave the majority of you unsatisfied. I fear Forbidden Temptation won’t be good enough, I fear it won’t be long enough, I fear that I won’t show the multiple characters enough…I fear it simply just won’t be enough.

This has been something that has been weighing on me for so long, that we haven’t written anything for two months! (It’s actually been longer, but in November and December we were getting ready to publish Forbidden Heat, so that doesn’t really count.) Two months. Some of this had to do with some personal reasons, but it’s mostly because I’ve been psyching myself out, and I guess I feel that if I don’t write anything, then at least I can’t write anything bad.

One thing I have to accept is that this book might be a little different from the last two. I feel that so much of this story is from Kenzie’s point of view only, and I’ve learned that as a writer, you have to let things come naturally because readers can tell when things are forced. I also don’t know if there will be as many multiple POVs. Some might like this, some might not, and some might not care, but I had to throw that out there. We never started the first two books with multiple POVs to try to prove something or on a whim. We wrote them that way because it was also what had come naturally. Hopefully, book three will still please you, and you will still be able to tell that it’s one of ours, even if it is a little unlike the others.

Now, before I go, I want you to know that I’m not expecting you all to comment about how we won’t disappoint you or anything like that. I just wanted our readers to know how I felt and that the next book might not be everything I want it to be, and also that it won’t be coming out at the beginning of summer like we originally wanted it to. It will come out in the summer, though. If you follow our Facebook page, you’ll have seen that we are both having babies this summer. We are due the end of July and the end of August, so we will get it out before then, otherwise it might not happen for a year since one of us is having twins.

Thank you all for listening!
R. (aka Renae)
