It's TEASER TUESDAY!
You know what it means. :)
Let's do this.
Here is the first teaser from the unedited MS. I hope you like it.
And now I'm going back to hide with my book. :P
It was messy.
It was raw.It was love.
Yes, you've guessed right. I'm getting ready to publish a new book. :D
As some of you know, 2017 is a tough year for me, so it's with even more excitement that I'm happy to announce that I have set a date for the cover reveal and the release, but also for a prologue reveal to wet your appetite.
Now, let me give you some dates to write on your calendar. ;)
- Cover Reveal: August 18
- Prologue Reveal: September 29
- Release Date: October 10
- Release Boost: October 14
Are you looking forward to the cover reveal or the release? Would you like to be a part of any of these promo events?
Then, you can sign up or share the form with your friends.
Thank you a lot for your help and if you'd like to add MESSY LOVE to your TBR on Goodreads, don't wait. ;)
Now, excuse me while I panic over here. I'll try not to refresh the google form too often. :P
I'm not sure if you knew this, but I have a readers' group on Facebook. Yep, I kind of forgot that too for a while. :/
I've decided to revive it. It started with a change of name (thank you Lucii) and a new banner I made. Now I need to make sure it doesn't fall asleep once again. And it won't, I swear!
But to make it a fun group, we need more people to join us!
Why should you join when you're in so many FB groups already?
Well, to be honest right now I'm not sure if I can give you enough reasons to join, but I can tell you what I'd like to do in the coming months.
Exclusive cover reveals at least two days before the official date (and I have one coming soon-ish). ARCs for members who would like to read and review my new books.
Pics of hot guys. :P
If things pick up, author takeovers with more exciting giveaways.
I'm determined to make it a fun group all around so if you feel like joining and if you like my books, I'd be happy to welcome you. :)
Do you like freebies?
What a question! Who wouldn't like a free book to add to their Kindle. :D
For a few days, you can get BE A DOLL for FREE, even if you're not a KU member.
Now, you don't have a reason not to meet Mathis Grimes and Lila Hodge Grimes.
If you like my books and if you're eager to read my next books, this is for you. :)
I'm setting up an ARC Review Team. I know, it's been a long time coming, but it's ready now!
For now, I don't have a FB group set up, only an online form to fill out if you're interested, but in time and if you want a FB group I will create one.
I hope you'll be many to sign up and I can't wait to send my next ARC. x
Do you want to join us? It's easy.
Here is the sign up for the Challenge: http://madmimi.com/signups/260653/j...
Here is the group where you can engage the participating authors: https://www.facebook.com/groups/lov...

PS: Be A Doll is part of this challenge so don't wait to meet Mathis and Lila. :P
Are you ready to meet Mathis Grimes and discover his story?
Buckle up and let him win you over little by little, just like he did with Lila. :P

At Carter Manor, women were groomed to become the perfect next trophy wife for the most influential and powerful men in the world.
Polished, educated, and disciplined... they met every criteria.
Or did they?
After escaping two prospective husbands, I knew I didn't have much of a choice anymore but to play by the rules if I didn't want to end up back in the streets.
Upon meeting him I expected an older disgusting man, but he proved me wrong.
He was young, handsome... and despicable.
His cold hearted behavior and condescension caused me to lose my carefully built appearance of sophistication, but somehow, it made me win a husband who enjoyed toying with me until he could break the last pieces of who I used to be. I wouldn't let him.
I hated him.
At least I did at first, until I had a peek underneath his walls and discovered the kind of pain he shouldered.
I never thought I'd get married and even less that I would be purchasing my wife, but for my business I would do anything.
At the Manor, I was sure I'd find bland women so polished that nothing of their own personality was left. But one candidate couldn't hide the fire in her.
I was drawn, ready to toy with her, to tease her until she folded for me and let me take her to make her fully mine and not in name only.
I didn't want love, I didn't want her to be in my living space and I certainly didn't want her to see who I really was under the facade I had spent years shaping myself to be, but that was exactly what was happening.
She fascinated me.
Her strength made me want her in the most all-consuming way.
Now I wondered who possessed whom.
There's a $25 Amazon GC to win on my FB page. To enter it's very easy. Go over HERE and check out the pinned post. :)
“I’m not playing.’’
His head tilted, eyes on mine and lips in between his teeth, it was difficult for me to stay put and wait for his next move. My whole body buzzed with need, with an urgency I didn’t remember ever feeling in the past. Not to this extreme.
He released his lower lip from the trap of his white teeth and I let my eyes enjoy the spectacle of his lip, darker than before and with a slight shine to it. Tasting him, hearing the hitch in his breathing, feeling his hardened cock... that was all I wanted, all that mattered at that moment. I was reduced to a mindless pool of lust and it didn’t even register in my head to be cautious and to second guess what would happen.
“Aren’t you?’’ he asked and finally moved.
He took a step inside and closed the door without tearing his eyes from me. With one quick glance on his left he dropped his keys in the big pot on the console and then walked toward me, his eyes boring into me.
That stare alone was foreplay.
It spoke of touches, intimate and teasing. It spoke of kisses. It spoke of sex without holding back. It spoke of orgasms, powerful and probably blinding.
I didn’t move from my seat, sure that if I attempted to stand up I’d make a fool of myself with the pinpricks in my legs telling me how wobbly I was. But I didn’t need to anyway because in no time he was towering over me, his eyes on mine as I had my head tilted back so as not to break eye contact. It wasn’t even a conscious decision not to. I was trapped, enthralled and at his mercy.
He wanted to break my resolve, to shatter my vows and ruin the person I had been groomed to become and he succeeded in a matter of a few short days.
“Does that mean you want me, little wife?’’
His eyes then left mine and deliberately fell down to my cleavage. The path his dark orbs took warmed me, drawing out goosebumps, and I shivered when I realized the kind of perfect view he must have from above, down the v of my cashmere sweater.
“I want an orgasm,’’ I replied in a bout of defiance as my eyes landed on his slightly parted lips. “That’s all.’’
He crouched in front of me, bringing his head to the same level as mine. The closeness that had me gasping silently. His nose grazed mine and his mouth was just a breath away from mine, tantalizing, teasing. He was always teasing. Playing with me. Toying with me.
Happy New Year!
In a few hours we will say goodbye to 2016.
I can't thank my Facebook friends enough for their support, their kindness and their interest in my books and in me. You know who you are and while I'm not very loud here on Facebook, I hope you know how much I appreciate each and every one of you. ❤
Thinking back to the last few years since I published my first book back in 2013, it blows my mind how many bloggers and readers have been helping me by promoting my books and reading them. You are the reason why publishing books never ceased to be exciting for me. I hope 2017 will mark an amazing year for you. 😘
To all of my fellow authors, let's make 2017 our year by writing stories we can be proud of and hopefully meet our readers' expectations, and why not, exceed them. I wish you the best year with so much inspiration that you don't know what to do with it. 😜
Right now, I'm going to enjoy the last few hours of 2016 with all my hopes and dreams back to where they were before 2016 started as I dream of 2017 as my year. 🦄
I can't wait to publish my first book of 2017 on January 17th and I hope Be A Doll will mark the start of a great new year. 🔥
In 1 month you'll be able to meet Mathis and Lila. Isn't it crazy?
It also means that I don't have a lot of time to promote this novel and convince you to sign up for my Release Day Blitz. :o
