Falling For You

One of the things I like the most about writing novels is that I’m always learning things about the craft. With every book I write, I get closer to portraying women and their love stories the way I hope I can. In talking to my publisher at Rose and Star Press, we came to the conclusion that The Makeover Challenge wasn’t a fitting title for the novel. It tells readers that the most important thing about the book is the reality TV series the characters participate in; but that’s not even close to the truth. The most important thing is how Charlie and Francesca fall in love and, together, overcome the things holding them back.

So it’s with pleasure that I introduce the re-release: Falling For You.

Who expects to fall in love on reality TV?

Certainly not Miss Charlie Vega, a burnt-out designer in desperate need of inspiration. Neither does Francesca Davies, a rock-climbing internet celebrity with an overbearing family. The two of them audition to compete on a hit reality TV series for very different reasons, but when they get paired up as a team, the road to victory gets a lot more complicated.

They have almost zero in common, but their fiery chemistry is immediate and intense. With their complicated baggage, neither is exactly ready for love, but they’re certainly not averse to some steamy encounters…that are bound to get them into hot water.

Could they even make a real relationship work on a show that’s actually nothing like reality?

The Makeover Challenge has been getting some really great reviews! I’m super happy, because it’s one of my all-time favorite novels I’ve written ❤ If you’ve read it, would you consider leaving an honest review on Amazon (linked above)? It doesn’t have to be long or anything. All reviews support authors and help us reach our audiences!

I’m hard at work on my next book, which is tentatively titled Saving Serena. It’s going to be action-packed 🙂 I’ve written a couple of mystery-themed romances before, specifically my paranormal romance Hereafter and my very first novel, Heart of Glasswhich reached the #1 spot on Amazon’s Best Sellers in Lesbian Romance. I’m super excited about adding another to my list!

Winters tend to be kind of hard for me, so I’m working on learning to love the snow and coziness that we can find when the earth starts to hibernate. I hope you’ll all have a peaceful, love-filled holiday season ❤

The Makeover Challenge – Released Today!

AAAHHH, IT’S HERE! I’m super psyched to share my newest novel, The Makeover Challenge! You can get it on Amazon, or read it for FREE with Kindle Unlimited! I’ll be releasing the paperback version soon.

Synopsis:

Who expects to fall in love on reality TV?

Certainly not Charlie Vega, a burnt-out fashionista in desperate need of inspiration. Neither does Francesca Davies, a rock-climbing internet celebrity with a family who thinks a woman’s worth is measured by her husband. The two of them are competing on the hit reality series “The Makeover Challenge” for very different reasons, but when they get paired up as a team, the road to victory gets a lot more complicated.

With so little in common, it’s surprising that their chemistry is immediate, but it isn’t long before each woman finds herself intensely attracted to the other. With their complicated baggage, neither is exactly ready for love, but they’re certainly not averse to some steamy encounters…that are bound to get them into hot water.

Could they even make a real relationship work on a show that’s actually nothing like reality?

The Makeover Challenge – Coming Soon!

I’ve been hard at work on a new novel, The Makeover Challenge, and I’m so excited that it’s nearing completion!

This is such a fun one, you guys. I write romances with all sorts of flavors: dramatic, heartwarming, serious, weighty, fluffy… All of my stories have a firm basis in the idea of two women overcoming hurt and setbacks to become better together. Since The Makeover Challenge is centered around two women on a reality TV show, it gave me the chance to write a story that’s both dramatic and fun, with a little bit of silliness and a lot of self-realization. It is a makeover story, after all!

The premise of the TV show is that pairs of people from different backgrounds work together to teach each other their specialty and then compete in challenges. My novel is the story of Charlie, a burnt-out fashion vlogger, and Francesca, a mountain climber who has a successful YouTube channel but also has a ton of debt and a family that thinks she’s worthless. They get paired together…and all sorts of feelings and craziness ensue 🙂

Charlie’s lost her passion for her work and she’s afraid she’ll never get it back. She auditions for “The Makeover Challenge” television series on a whim, hoping for a shot of inspiration, and she’s totally shocked (and elated) when she actually gets accepted. Francesca, on the other hand, really needs the cash prize to keep school loan creditors at bay. It would also help convince her family that there’s more to a woman than how good of a husband she can bag.

Charlie and Francesca are so good for each other and share so much chemistry, but even if they can get past their emotional walls, there’s no way they’ll get any privacy on a show where the point is to follow them around with cameras.

I’m going to be working on the cover today, so I can’t wait to show it to you!
