Don’t REGRET this giveaway!

1.53NUMBERS JPGHave you heard the news? I’ve got a new novel releasing today and I can’t WAIT to share it with you!!
I am so excited to bring you this sweet New Adult romance! All of the sizzle; no explicit sex. 🙂 I’ve got 7 books mapped out for the series so far, and it’s linked to One Sweet Summer (Love by the Numbers, Book 0), my previous Kindle World novella. ONE AND A HALF REGRETS is the official “Love by the Numbers” series starter and it’s written in a brand new style!
Here’s a bit about the book:
OVERVIEW:

I never expected Liam Hensley to rock and roll his way back into my life. Now he’s reminding me of things I thought I’d long since given up–my life, my love, my own music. He says he wants a second chance, to make up for mistakes of the past. There’s just one little problem…I’m hiding a secret that could ruin both our futures.

I can’t tell him I had his baby.

Classical violinist and single mom, Beth MacGuire works part-time at a bar while keeping tabs on her alcoholic mother and minding her sweet infant daughter—until a chance encounter with her high school crush, Liam Hensley, spells disaster for her plans to put her past behind her.
 
When Liam signed with hot band, Wylde Ryder, he rocketed to fame and never looked back. He’s returned to Seattle for a bandmate’s doomed wedding, but seeing Beth rekindles feelings he thought he’d buried for good.
Plagued by turbulent memories, their passionate reconnection sparks brighter than his concert spotlights. Beth is set against risking her precious baby’s happiness for life with a rock star daddy, but when Liam’s father discovers their little secret, the drummer must choose between stepping up or stepping away from being a family man.
Your ticket to the hottest rock love story of the summer! (2)

Still not sure? Want a little taste of the new novel? Check out this excerpt from ONE AND A HALF REGRETS:

“I’m here now. Doesn’t that count for something?”

“Lucky me. I get one last night with Liam Hensley. Where are you off to tomorrow? London? Paris? Singapore?”

 “Seattle,” he suddenly shouts. His face is contorted in agony. “I’ll be here tomorrow. And the next day and the one after that if that’s what it takes to make you hate me less.”

 “I don’t hate you, Liam. I…” I stop short. The wind blows through the trees, making a shushing noise. “You’d do that? For me?”

 “Yeah.” He holds my eyes. “DeSilva can screw off. The band needs a break. Zane and Finn are about to go at it over something, and the wedding is making everyone crazy, and I’d rather just be with you. It’s the only thing that’s felt right in I don’t know how long.”

 My chest is being squeezed like a set of bagpipes. “Since when did I matter?”

 His face softens. “Since the first day of fourth grade when I pulled your braids and you kicked me in the nuts. Since tenth grade when I kissed you for the first time. Since the day I said goodbye to you in a stupid text message and my world hasn’t been the same.”

 He gives me that look, the one that says he’s going to kiss me. He leans closer, with his perfectly handsome features, a face I’ve loved forever. I feel my lips start to pucker in anticipation of meeting his and butterflies flutter an alarm in my midsection.

 This is wrong, this is all going wrong. I’m not supposed to be falling for Liam again, I am just supposed to get some closure. I can never be with him, never tell him about…

 “I have a baby,” I hear myself blurting.

 “A wha—okay.” Liam rocks back, as if I’ve struck him. “You do?”

 “Yes.” We do, I finish in my head. I start swinging again. Twisting in the wind, like a loose strand.

 Oh, I’m a horrible, horrible person.

 “That’s uhhh…great. Right?” He grabs hold of my chains, forcing me to slow down and face him. “Yeah, great. You found some nice guy or something after we split? That’s great.” His knee is bouncing up and down and he’s babbling, obviously blindsided and angry and confused all at once.

 The way I’d been when I saw the double blue lines on the pregnancy test.

 The way I’d been when I’d read his texted goodbye.

 It was awful and heart-wrenching and wrong. I should’ve told him. I should have let him have a choice in decisions for his future. Tears blur my vision and I grope blindly, finding the solidity of his shoulder.

 He’s right next to me, where he should be.

 “Liam…” Who did I think I was, deciding everything for everyone?

 “So, you’re with someone now? Is he the father? Is that why you didn’t want to go out with me today?” He looks devastated, but I’m not sure why. Is it the baby, or the possibility that I’m seeing another man?

 As if I could love anyone but him.

 “No.” I screw up my courage. This time, I’m not going to run from the hard thing. The right thing. I’m not a stupid teenager anymore. It’s time to pull up my big girl panties and face the truth. “Liam, there’s more.”

 “Is it bad?” He flinches, like he’s expecting a hard hit.

 “Yes. No. I don’t know.” I hide my face in my hands. “Why is this so fecking hard?”

 He pries my fingers off my face. His gaze is smooth and steady. Looks like he’s grown up some, too. “Okay. Tell me.”

 I can’t bear this.

 Can’t stand hurting Liam again.

 I take a deep breath and answer. “The baby’s yours.”

We’re partying and giving away prizes on Facebook. Come join in the fun! Each author has a great romance to offer, along with 3 grand prizes (see below). My feature is HELL ON HEELS, a NEW release in my Southern Seductions series.

Book 3 JA COFFEY- High ResolutionFlamboyant, artistic Caroline Cattrell is determined to remain independent of her wealthy family’s influence–even if it means losing her friends in the process. After losing her job, she’s forced to use her seductive personality and pose as a honey pot in an undercover operation to keep her head above water.

Stan Kendrick was the one man that everyone had it out for. Branded as a cheating ex, he was forced to uphold his bad boy image to save the lives of those he cared about. But working undercover gets a lot more complicated when the one woman who could help him nail an international crime lord and finally close the case is the last woman who would dare to help him. Buy it for 99 cents for a limited time!

 

In HELL ON HEELS, Caroline must go undercover to help a man she’s mistakenly hated for the past decade. A man who has a dangerous secret life. A man who desperately needs her help.

This excerpt features training for hand-to-hand combat from two combative characters under the watchful eye of his ex-partner:

They practiced it a few more times, until both of them were red-faced and breathing heavily from the contact. Then Stan fished around in his back pocket, and with an unreadable expression introduced something new to her. Something that made her knees go weak for all the right reasons.
“One last thing. If someone wants to keep you tied up, they’ll probably use these.” He held up a pair of clear, plastic zip ties.
“Trash bag thingies?” she asked.
He chuckled. “These are soft cuffs. They’re portable restraints. Easy to carry and easy to hide as they don’t set off metal detectors. Cops and criminals alike have been using them for years.”
“I see.” She didn’t want to know why supposedly boring Stan Kendrick knew about soft cuffs.
He leaned forward, reaching around her to pin her wrists together while he explained how the mechanism worked. “So, the theory is the same as before. You want to create space around your body when they are trying to secure you, so you have room to break free. If they tie you, spread your wrists or ankles as apart as far as you can. Make the space fat, so when they zip you, there’s room to move later.”
“Okay.” It was hard to think when he was this close to her. He smelled like soap and pine trees and…leather. Leather made her think of all kinds of interesting things, so she swallowed hard and forced the fantasy away.
Stan paused. They were face-to-face and her hands were cuffed behind her. If he wanted to, he could lean down and kiss her. He could do whatever he wanted to her. She found her lips pursing as if anticipating his caress.
“You okay? I can’t be gentle with this demonstration. And if the cartel catches you, they sure won’t be.” Stan’s gaze never wavered, his hazel eyes locked on her in a way that had her shifting in her shoes. If not for the presence of his partner a few feet away, she’d be throwing herself at his feet.
Caroline exhaled slowly and nodded. “Gotcha.”
“You look good cuffed,” he said in a low voice. The closest thing to an admission that she was affecting him.
He took a step back, his gaze traveling leisurely down the length of her. She resisted the urge to inhale, her hands bound behind her already forced her breasts up high. She felt her nipples stiffen under his hot stare.
Stan’s throat bobbed as he swallowed hard. “Caroline, I…”
“Everything under control over there? She knows the drill?” Allison hollered towards them.
“We’re fine.” Stan gritted over his shoulder. His eyes returned to her face, still burning with an emotion she didn’t dare name. “Everything’s under control.”

I loved the transformation of both Caroline and Stan Kendrick in HELL ON HEELS.  Their love is proof that some sparks are just meant to ignite passion!
