This Friday!

I had the best surprise last night! Not only a new cover for my contemporary 1Night Stand story, Sweet Revenge, but a release date too. This Friday!

Um, yeah - that cover's a grabber! If you're familiar with the 1NS series, you know they're always short, usually a lot of fun and generally range from hot to incendiary. Hotter than what I usually write, and often the editors have to prod me to add more.

My nephew actually inspired this story. I was so proud of him for working hard to lose 150 pounds and get in great shape, it seemed like a perfect complement to the topic of bullying. Long-ago bullying, yes, but that type of antagonism stays with a person. And I found it interesting to explore a mature person's view of it, if not an active part, then someone who failed to stand up for another. So Sweet Revenge came together.

Here's the blurb:

Humbled by life and hungry for love…
From cheerleader to news anchor to…yoga instructor? After Zoe Golden lost everything she thought was important, she found the inner strength to pursue real happiness. The simple life provides everything she needs—except love. Once, long ago, she met a real man, but her insecurities made her deny her heart’s desires. Can Madame Eve find her a guy like the one who got away?
Bruised by rejection and determined to exact revenge…
The sculpted, successful owner of a chain of fitness studios, Ty Hardin can have any woman he wants. Fifteen years and 150 pound weight loss, has changed him beyond recognition. Now the girl who crushed his heart teaches yoga in one of his facilities. Not for long. Before he fires her, he wants one night with her. Wants her to know what she missed out on. But will revenge still be as sweet the morning after, or will it leave a bitter aftertaste?
Zoe and Ty might just be the best thing that ever happened to each other—if they can avoid doing their worst…

Did I mention it releases this Friday? Woo hoo!
