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 – 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!

I’m so proud of this book, and so happy with it. It focuses a lot on nostalgia, memory, and the power of food to both evoke memories and make new ones. It’s got one of the flirtiest romances I’ve written so far, too 🙂 Here’s the summary!

As a successful event planner, Mila Fanucci can organize every detail of a party down to the last silk napkin. Too bad she can’t sort out her own love life.

It’s been years since Mila set foot in Cloudy Harbor, her hometown. After her first love took off without a word, Mila followed suit and moved away. But now, years later, Mila’s sister wants to get married at their childhood home, and Mila is forced to face her own loneliness.

To her surprise, she finds that sleepy Cloudy Harbor has changed almost as much as she has—and that change is embodied by Rickie, the sexy, rebellious master chef at the new modern cuisine restaurant.

With her dashing good looks and her culinary wizardry, Rickie charms Mila in a way she never imagined possible. But when a missing piece from Mila’s past blows into town, she realizes that she isn’t sure of anything anymore, and her delicious romance with Rickie is put to the test. Is history bound to repeat itself?

PRAIRIE HEART audiobook!

My novel Prairie Heart is now available as an audiobook!

The narrator is Tessa Stavers (also known as Aven Shore) and she is phenomenal.  Her work is professional, crisp, and such a perfect balance between acting and narration. She really brings Eleanor and Morgan to life (not to mention all the other characters!) I fell in love with this story all over again when I listened to the audiobook. I know you’ll love it!

And you can listen to it for FREE with an Audible free trial! This is one of my most popular novels, and people asked for it to be made into an audiobook–and I couldn’t be happier!

Here’s what Prairie Heart is about:

Eleanor Higgins has an incredible talent for matchmaking–for everyone but herself. Many of the couples in the tiny Colorado ranch town of Prairie Winds have Eleanor to thank for their happily ever after. But when her best friend, Morgan, asks for Eleanor’s help to set her up on a date…

Well, that’s where it gets complicated.

Morgan is funny and dashing, and she’s sexier in blue jeans and a cowboy hat than any ranch hand has a right to be. She also just came out. The thing is? Eleanor’s had a crush on Morgan since forever, and has spent her entire life convincing herself that Morgan was off limits. Now that Morgan’s told her she’s not exactly straight–and that Morgan needs her help to find the right lady–Eleanor’s heartbroken that this “right lady” is probably not her. Ever the great friend, she knows her own ex-girlfriend is absolutely perfect for Morgan…

A sexy camping trip, a tornado and an intense love triangle round out this heartwarming romance by best-selling author Marian Snowe!

Two Alone and The Nature of Love are here!

YAHOO! Today is release day! Two Alone, my latest novella, is now available on Amazon along with a compilation of all of my novellas called The Nature of Love!

Can one mistake ruin your chance at love forever?

Ivy Wilson has had enough of the spotlight to last her a lifetime. It was bad enough that someone stumbled on Ivy and her now ex-girlfriend fooling around in a not-so-private place, and worse still that they happened to be caught on video…but the video went viral, and Ivy’s ex was the one to help spread it around. If Ivy never sees another YouTube comment again, it’ll be too soon.

All Ivy wants is some privacy and some time to steady her nerves, but when she goes on a hike deep in the woods, a beautiful woman lands right at her feet…literally.

Sawyer Sherwood, expert adventurer and tree-climber extraordinaire, is too charming and too smoking hot for Ivy to ignore. They’re way out in the middle of nowhere, right? If Ivy’s going to have a passionate fling with the sexiest lady she’s ever met, this is the place to do it.

Ivy couldn’t be happier with the way they spend the day, but when she gets home that night, she turns on the television…and sees Sawyer’s face. Sawyer isn’t just an adventurer, she’s a famous vlogger with legions of fans. And the last thing Ivy needs is another thrill-seeker for a girlfriend.

Can Ivy conquer her fear of exposure and be with this captivating woman, or will Sawyer’s fame be too much for her to take?

The Nature of Love : Contains Two Alone, Rescue Me, and Love Birds. You can also read this for free with Kindle Unlimited!

If you haven’t read my other novellas, getting them in this compilation is a great deal! Also, this is the first time these three novellas will be available in print. The paperback version of The Nature of Love should arrive on Amazon in the next few days 🙂 Here’s what you’ll find in The Nature of Love:

While on a hike deep in the woods, Ivy meets Sawyer, a gorgeous, tree-climbing adventurer…and Ivy can’t resist her allure. Being out in the wilderness means they’ll have plenty of privacy, but what will Ivy do when she finds out that dating Sawyer could drag her even farther into the spotlight?

Rescue Me: Elise Giordano wants an opportunity to impress Sasha, the charismatic leader of the marine animal rescue where Elise volunteers and the woman of Elise’s dreams. Elise never guessed that an entangled mother humpback whale and her calf would provide that opportunity, but when the two women rush to the rescue, a love as deep as the ocean begins to surface.

Love Birds: Alexandria Dunn’s quiet, boring life gets a splash of color when she discovers a love of birds and birdwatching. At her first birdwatching event, Alexandria meets Nell, a beautiful and enthusiastic tour guide.
