Love, Windy City Style Book 2: Title and Synopsis

I know I've been teasing that there would be a sequel to HIH for a while now, and I am finally going to put you out of your misery and tell you about my new book that will be out later this year.  It will be called Private Dancer, and it is the arresting tale of two characters familiar to readers of HIH: Jake Bradley and Natalie Warner.

Jake Bradley has spent most of his adult life living on the edge in life and love.  He spends his days as the editor-in-chief of several magazines at Sinclair Publishing and spends his nights in bed with socialites and models.  However, he is stopped dead in his tracks by a mysterious woman dancing for money...

Natalie Warner knows Jake is way out of her league from the first time she meets him.  Her sleazy world of pole dancing and lecherous men is miles from his weekly society column mentions and playboy lifestyle.  Still, she can't get the sandy-haired businessman out of her head.  So, not wanting to get too attached, she propositions him with a no-strings-attached fling.  However, as the chemistry burns hotter between them and the collision of their worlds forces her to make a life-changing decision, it becomes more difficult to keep their feelings out of the equation...

Stay tuned for more updates and a cover reveal coming soon.

Hell in Heels is Here!

Hell in Heels has officially been released to Amazon Kindle.  I had some technical difficulties with Smashwords, so I am going to work on that edition today so that my book will be available to Nook readers very soon.  Also, do to unforeseen circumstances, my book will not be available through the Apple Store or Kobo Reader.

Here is the Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Hell-Heels-Windy-Style-ebook/dp/B00CHF6O9C/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1366718942&sr=1-1&keywords=hell+in+heels

Thanks to all who buy HIH today and please take the time to leave a review.  For a self-published author, that is the way a book gets noticed.  Happy release day, and enjoy HIH!

Hell in Heels Teaser #2

Just to get everyone through the next nine days, I'm going to post a teaser from Hell in Heels.  It will be available on April 23rd for all e-reading devices.  Enjoy!
***

By ten to eight, Nathan was in the lobby, leaning against the wall beside the elevators.  Almost on cue, Amy strolled in.  Damn, she looked good.  Maybe it was his just that he hadn't seen her, but he felt she looked extra-tempting in her pale rose blouse, gray skirt, and pastel pink heels.  When their eyes met, she grinned, her cute dimples peeking out.  She looked happy to see him.  He exhaled deeply, trying to calm himself as she approached him.
 Nathan nodded toward the elevator.   “Want to ride up with me?”
            Amy smiled and shrugged.  “Sure.”
            Nathan led her to an open elevator and they stepped inside.  As the doors closed and he pressed the button for the eighteenth floor, they realized they were the only ones in it.  For a few seconds, he nervously tapped his foot but it didn’t take long for him to relax.
            Nathan looked over Amy’s outfit again, in pure disbelief that a woman who dressed as simply as she did could look so stunning.   “You look good.”
            Amy glanced at Nathan and exhaled audibly.  “Thank you.”
            Nathan caught a whiff of Amy’s perfume and was aroused almost instantly.  This wasn’t normal.  He could always keep his cool around women, even if he was highly attracted to them.  He gripped the bar beside him, striving for control.  This petite little architect had turned his world upside down.  He wasn’t sure he liked it, either.
            Nathan glanced over at Amy and noticed that she was biting on her lip and her hands trembled.  He had a feeling that she’d noticed the effect she’d had on him below the belt.  Damn it, he felt like some type of pervert.  He smelled a girl’s perfume and he got hard?  What was wrong with him?
            However, the little smirk Amy offered him shortly afterward reassured Nathan.  He still wasn’t proud he was sporting an erection that anyone could see, but the fact that she didn’t seem to think less of him made him feel a little less embarrassed.
            He wasn’t sure what happened in that moment when their gazes locked.  It was almost as if their souls were bared to one another, and all of their wants, needs, and desires could be seen by the other.  Prior to it, they at least had a shot of keeping their feelings for each other at bay for the time being.  However, the passion and frankly, the pure lust in their eyes killed all hopes of that.
            Nathan dropped his suitcase on the floor and turned to face Amy.  His thinking was no longer clear as he put his hands on the bar on either side of her.  Then, without much more warning than that, his mouth plunged onto hers.

The Final Countdown Has Begun!

At last!  The final stretch before the release of Hell in Heels has arrived.  The official release date is April 23rd, and it will be available on most e-reader devices such as Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and Kobo Reader.  Thirteen days.  It's pretty hard to believe.

I actually just finished edits on Hell in Heels last night, and you guys will never believe how that felt.  It's just unbelievable to think that it is less than two weeks away from being available for all of you to read.  I hope that all of you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

In other news, I'm hard at work on my next novel, Private Dancer.  You will meet the main characters for that book in Hell in Heels, and I think you will like them.  They are unique and the promise of it won't put you in Hell in Heels withdrawal which, I have to admit, I had a little trouble with.  Nathan and Amy are hard characters to let go of, although I'm sure you'll figure that out all on your own.  For now, I'm going to stay tight-lipped on the plot of Private Dancer, but I promise I will give all of you details soon.

There might be some more exciting news coming soon, so I will keep you all posted.
