No, it’s not an internet horror movie, it’s merely that I decided I did have a few things I wanted to say in a blog format. Stay tuned.
Because I’ve been so busy writing and embracing Facebook as an inevitable if confusing marketing tool, I’ve severely neglected my blog. But I’ve been wondering if my blog is gradually being replaced by Facebook and the other social media I’m on. (Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram.)
I may retire the blog soon. Fair warning. 🙂
Alex Sullivan may be the San Diego Barracudas’ resident playboy, but he hasn’t been able to forget the woman who kissed him like her life depended on it ten months ago. When he sees her again at a teammate’s wedding, he can’t think of anything but spending more time with her. Preferably naked.
Claire Marzano lost years catering to an overbearing husband, and she’s not going to answer to anyone ever again. A hot fling is just what she needs to get back in the game, and that’s exactly what sexy Alex offers—one wild long weekend away, with no promises or obligations.
But that one weekend changes everything. Despite knowing full well Alex isn’t the kind to ever commit, Claire is falling for him. And Alex secretly imagines a future with his strong, smart “accidental girlfriend.” Until a surprise announcement and an on-ice accident threaten to derail everything…or cause Alex to finally ditch his old ways and become the man Claire needs him to be.
Those of you who read On the Surface (In The Zone Book 1), Tim and Erin’s story, you may remember Erin’s older sister, Claire. Claire helped Tim decorate his apartment. She also had an encounter of the sexy kind with Alex Sullivan at the team’s unofficial watering hole, Moe’s. I hadn’t really intended for Claire to have her own book. I really only put her through the marriage wringer because I needed for Erin to miss the hockey game. Funny how little things like that can turn into big things, like an entire novel.
Anyway, mark the date. Out of the Game comes out March 16. That’s when you’ll get to see Alex and Claire make their way past all the obstacles I put in their way, and I put some doozies.
I was on Amazon checking my rankings and I saw that Out of the Game, Book Three of the In the Zone series, is up for pre-order! The on-sale date is April 20, 2014 and I am so excited.
I’ve been working so hard on Alex Sullivan’s story. It’s funny how, when writing a series, you get to love a character so much that when you get around to writing “his” book, you feel pressure to make it a really good one. Like he’s so terrific a person, he deserves something really spectacular.
In reality, all the books I write should be the best I can do, but from the moment he opened his mouth in Chapter One of On the Surface, Alex has always been a favorite of mine.
I have a Pinterest board devoted to Out of the Game, but if you don’t feel like clicking right now, here’s a picture of what I imagine Alex to look like.
