Owning Violet UK Cover Reveal!

Isn’t it gorgeous? I love it!

Owning Violet

It releases simultaneously with the US version of OWNING VIOLET. Click HERE to order from Amazon UK.

I’ve moved through life doing what’s expected of me. I’m the middle daughter, the dutiful daughter. The one who braved a vicious attack and survived. The one who devoted herself to her family’s business empire. The one who met an ambitious man and fell in love. We were going to run Fleur Cosmetics together, Zachary and I.

Until he got a promotion and left me in the dust. Maybe it’s for the best, between his disloyalty and his wandering eye. But another man was waiting for me. Wanting me. He too has an overwhelming thirst for success, just like Zachary – perhaps even more so. He’s also ruthless. And mysterious. I know nothing about Ryder McKay beyond that he makes me feel things I’ve never felt before.

One stolen moment, a kiss, a touch . . . and I’m hooked. Ryder’s like a powerful drug, and I’m an addict who doesn’t want to be cured. He tells me his intentions aren’t pure, and I believe him. For once, I don’t care. I’m willing to risk everything just to be with him. Including my heart. My soul.

My everything.

 

UK Readers – Excellent News!

I’m excited to announce that my new series, THE FOWLER SISTERS, is going to be published in the UK with Headline Eternal! I know my girls Violet, Rose and Lily are going to be in good hands at Headline Eternal. I was fortunate enough to meet so many people from the editorial team this past summer when I went to London (along with some equally fabulous UK bloggers!) and their enthusiasm for the romance genre and the books that they publish is so genuine, so passionate. It thrills me that my books are going to be published with them (the One Week Girlfriend series is with Headline Eternal as well). Working with my editor Kate Byrne and everyone else there is a dream!

What’s even better? All three books (OWNING VIOLET, STEALING ROSE and TAMING LILY) will have the same release dates as the US ones. So there will be no waiting, you’ll all get them on the same day! Now I’m curious…will they change the covers? And if they do, what will they look like? Eeep, I love foreign covers! I haven’t been disappointed yet.

In other news, here’s a photo of Mila Kunis. She could totally be my Violet. Are you on Pinterest? If so, you should follow me there. I’m putting together an inspiration board for The Fowler Sisters series and it’ll give you an early glimpse in to what the series is all about…
