Sinful Abandon News! 

Last year, I joined an incredible group of authors in creating a reader’s group called A Secret Affair. A few months later, we had a crazy idea: Let’s create a boxset of BRAND NEW ROMANCES, sell it for $.99 and give all the proceeds to charity!

The requirement: These must be taboo or forbidden romances.

I’m excited to announce that A SECRET AFFAIR: An anthology of forbidden romance novellas by Carina Adams, Leddy Harper, Nicole Hart, Lauren Runow, SL Ziegler, and yours truly, will release on October 18, 2016!!!  All proceeds will go to Colleen Hoover’s amazing charity, The Bookworm Box.

Add A Secret Affair to your Goodreads –>

SINFUL ABANDON is the next installment in the Abandon Collection and exclusively featured in A Secret Affair.

Sinful Abandon will follow Heather, who you met in Pure Abandon, and a man she meets on the streets of Chicago. After an argument over a taxi, the two embark on a wild night of passion.

Can this intense connection of night survive the news of the morning?


The City and the Rose

My favorite part in planning the Abandon Collection is selecting the city and rose for the next novel. For Sinful Abandon, I knew I wanted SEXY!

The first city that came to mind was Chicago.

My husband and I travelled to the Windy City in 2010. We took a boat tour of the Chicago River, ate Giordano’s Pizza, walked Navy Pier, played at the beach of Lake Michigan, shopped The Magnificent Mile and watched 4th of July fireworks in a Chicago suburb with the family of a close friend.

Chicago is welcoming and entertaining; visually stunning and fascinating with it’s waterways woven through, making it the perfect location for a story this story.

I always knew Heather’s rose would be lavender. I mean, her name is a shade of purple! In Pure Abandon, she was accented in purple and aqua so it should come as no surprise that the hero in this novella, Ryan Pierson, has cobalt blue eyes. Purple and blue make a stunning combination, don’t cha think?

And that special meaning behind the lavender rose . . . love at first sight. (sigh!)

Stay tuned for pre-order links and sneaks peaks into this exciting novella.

I hope you enjoy Sinful Abandon!
