King of the Friend Zone! Super fun book!

Hi Friends! 

I cannot believe summer is over! Bah! It's been wild and crazy with travel and deadlines and new book projects, but I got a chance to read a brand new book by my friend, Sherlayn Pratt and here it is! 

Delicious, clean, contemporary romance set in San Francisco about a girl torn between the man she's engaged to and the boy she grew up that she's secretly in love with but can't admit it to herself. Lots of action and romance, plus, interestingly enough, I really enjoyed reading about Esme's job as a PR person for various companies and the jobs of the two men in her life (doctor and fireman). It really fleshed the characters and the story arcs in fresh ways. AND there's a touch of magic with a Cookie Lady that knows which couples are meant to be together when they eat her cookies . . . I won't spoil it, but cool, huh?

KING OF THE FRIEND ZONE is Free on Kindle Unlimited (buy links below) and a $50 cash card giveaway below, too! Read the book's synopsis and an excerpt of a super tense scene from the book and see why Sheralyn is a super fun, super smart person, too, in her picture! She's da bomb.

And yes, I need to seriously catch up this blog on my own writing life and personal life . . .


King of the Friend Zone

The King of the Friend Zone by Sheralyn Pratt

Esme Taylor has an amazing fiancé, a lifelong best friend, and a problem.

The problem stems from the fact that her best friend is named Hunter and, well. . .he’s kind of (totally) hot. It’s hate at first sight when her fiancé, Jon, and Hunter meet. Jon’s convinced that Hunter is in love with Esme, and that Hunter must be out of the picture if their upcoming marriage is to succeed.

Esme thinks Jon is paranoid.

The truth is, Jon’s not that far off. Hunter is in love with his best friend and always has been. What Jon has wrong, however, is that Hunter never had any plans of ruining Esme’s happily ever after. Hunter wants what’s best for Esme, even if that’s not him.

When Jon pushes hard to end Esme and Hunter’s friendship, opposition comes from the most unlikely of places. It’s an eccentric lady with a cookie cart who suggests a different solution to Esme’s problem: Hunter and Esme should give each other a chance.

They’ve both thought of the possibility over the years—of course they have. But with a ring already on Esme’s finger and a heap of hurt feelings and broken trust in the mix, there hasn’t been a worse time to explore the depths of their feelings for each other.

Both Esme and Hunter think it’s time to move on and leave childhood crushes in the past. The question is: Can one woman and the taste of one cookie change their minds?



While everyone around Hunter ate and drank, Hunter swirled the liquid in his glass and watched his friends and family interact with Jon.

The man was suave when he wanted to be; Hunter would give him that. He wore the right suits, said the right words, and charmed the right people.

What a hero.

He was also several inches shorter than Hunter, which meant Esme fit neatly against his shoulder as they stood and spoke with all their guests. Esme looked so content as she reclined against Jon, and Hunter wasn’t the only one who had noticed. The last person who had commented on Jon and Esme within Hunter’s earshot had called them “two peas in a pod” as if there were awards to be won in the category.

Well, there weren’t.

In that moment, Hunter was very glad he hadn’t been drinking that night, because otherwise he might have gone so far as announcing that fact to everyone. There are no awards for being two peas in a pod, everyone. Oh, and by the way, you should meet this guy when he isn’t trying to impress you. He’s a bit of a prick.

But, of course, no one wanted to hear that. No one wanted to hear anything from Hunter tonight except for a glowing toast endorsing the golden couple.

He still hadn’t written anything, although he had googled a generic speech and printed it out. It was in his pocket now, but he hadn’t practiced it and reading the prepackaged speech was pretty much out of the question now, thanks to his dyslexia. Reading on the best of days usually didn’t go that well for Hunter, but when he was seething mad?

Yeah, that wasn’t happening.

So he sat and swirled and watched and tried to imagine what in the world he could say that wouldn’t earn him more frowns than his jeans had already earned him.

Then it hit him: Why try? Why not be honest?

There wasn’t a face at this party that he hadn’t known for the better part of twenty years—well, except Jon. His smug mug was as new as it was unwelcome in Hunter’s book. But everyone knew Hunter and they’d know if he vomited some fake, glowing speech their direction.

So why should he?

Why not be honest?

The idea grew on Hunter as the night went on and the praise for Jon became more and more abundant. The clincher was when Jon’s best man stood up and gave a speech that proved he’d probably met Esme all of once, and everyone in attendance nodded and beamed as the guy praised Esme in the most generic of terms.

According to whatever the best man’s name was, Esme was kind and compassionate and a joy to all those who met her.

Seriously? The guy had clearly never been within earshot of Esme when an ice cream truck passed in July playing Christmas music. That would redefine the guy’s definition of “joy to all those around her.” Yet everyone ooohed and ahhhhed and clapped until the guy sat and Jon gave his bestie an appreciative slap on the back with a look that said, Well done.

Then everyone in the future wedding party looked at Hunter expectantly. It was his turn.

In that moment, Hunter had a choice to make. He could either repeat the same lame puffery the best man had, or he could give the speech that had been building up in him like a sneeze all night.

Be nice now and freak out later, or let it all hang out? That was the question. And one quick glance at Jon’s arrogant face gave Hunter his answer.

SheralynAuthor Sheralyn Pratt
Some describe Sheralyn as a girl who's been around the block and worked at every shop. This isn't far from the truth. Writing is what she loves most, however. There's a magical power in stepping into new perspectives time and again, and seeing the world through different eyes. Few things increase empathy more than walking in another's shoes for 100,000 words or so. At least that seems to be the trend so far.
Some random things to know about Sheralyn:
* She's a wanderer (geographically)
* She can write a novel, but doesn't have the attention span for one page in a journal
* She vehemently disagrees with Stephen King's stance that authors should not watch TV
* She is pretty much incapable of sleeping before midnight

My New Contemporary Romantic, SEALED WITH A KISS is here!

Spring is finally here! Which means allergies, pink popcorn blossoms on the trees, walks under the cottonwood trees, AND a new Romance Novel! 

Synopsis: It's been over a year since Jessica Mason and James Douglas first met and sparks flew (In RISKING IT ALL FOR LOVE), but now Jessica and James are struggling to make their long-distance relationship work between New Orleans where Jessica dances with the local ballet company and Snow Valley, Montana where James is the new pastor at the small community church.

When April Murphy, a war widow with a young daughter, shows up in Snow Valley, James reluctantly begins to wonder if he and Jessica are really meant to be. April would make the perfect pastor’s wife and he’d have an instant family and the stability he craves.

But he can’t get the spitfire Jessica out of his mind and when she returns to Snow Valley to accept an inheritance, her male ballet partner in tow, their love takes on a new edge.


Can Jessica and James make their long-distance relationship work, or do they allow their hearts to move on and forget the passion they once shared? 

Grab either title for your Spring Break Reading car/airplane trip for only $2.99 - or get it FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

BANISHED is born! Launch Party Details, too!

Happy book birthday to BANISHED, Book 2 of the FORBIDDEN trilogy!  Please come to the fabulous Book Launch Party in Albuquerque!

I'm thrilled to share the news that BANISHED (Harpercollins), is out in bookstores at last, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever books are sold. If you haven't had a chance to read FORBIDDEN yet, you can grab it on Kindle/Nook or the paperback for only a few bucks. It does end at a big cliffhanger, but now you can read BANISHED immediately. :-)
BOOKLIST gave BANISHED a fabulous review: "Jayden achieves almost superhero status here, moving from adventure to adventure—not even a near-death stoning can stop her. Little's descriptions of the landscape are evocative in both desolation and in beauty. Just as good is her pacing, which gets the blood pumping for both characters and readers. Far more than a bridge book, this will heighten anticipation for a no-doubt exciting conclusion."

Friday, February 26, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. BANISHED Book Launch Party at Bookworks Bookstore !

Bookworks on Rio Grande Blvd in Albuquerque at 6:00 p.m. There will be a tribal dancer, a Presentation about The Ancient Frankincense Trail, food, books, and fun!
Can’t attend? You can Order Autographed Copies by calling the store at 505-344-8139 and they’ll ship them to you!

This photograph is from a fan who ensconced a copy of BANISHED on a luxurious bed of scarves. I love it!

Quotes from the book! 

 Isn't this eye ribbon divine? Try it while reading BANISHED! 

A thousand thanks for all the support, my dear friends. I couldn't have a writing career without readers like you.

LOVELY News and TWO lovely giveaways of FORBIDDEN!

The last time I posted I was leaving for YALLFest in Charleston where I was part of the YASeries Insiders booth and did several library and high school events there and in North Carolina.

During the travel I was on deadline for Book 3 of the FORBIDDEN trilogy and very, very late getting it finished for my editor at Harper. I worked on the planes, my hotels, B&B's and then at my brother-in-law's house in Arizona during the long Thanksgiving weekend, working until midnight every night.

I wrote 50,000 words during that month of travel and 3 time zones, finally finishing the first 100,000 word draft--a draft I'd struggled mightily with all summer during family crises and a crisis of my own called "MENTAL 3rd Book PSYCH-OUT!" :-)

I did a first read-through revision while Christmas shopping, decorating, preparing for company, and then getting super, super sick, but I turned it in! Whew!

. . . and I have wonderful things to share today! 

FIRST! FORBIDDEN is only $1.99 on Kindle! Grab yours before BANISHED launches ONE MONTH FROM TODAY!!! 

 FORBIDDEN also launches TODAY in PAPERBACK for only $9.99! It's lovely and contains the first chapter of BANISHED in the back! So you get a sneak peek! (Giveaway Info at the bottom of this post!)

BOOKLIST gave BANISHED a fabulous review and I'm so excited for readers to enjoy the next installment of Jayden's story as she travels into the frankincense lands where the Goddess Temples of Sariba are even more dangerous and explosive - and Kadesh's life as prince of this mysterious land is not all that it seems. New characters and adventures and heartache as Horeb follows Jayden along the 2,000 mile trek into the deadly desert along the Red Sea to capture her and claim her for his own--with an army of Assyrians, their long-time enemies. Romance and danger abound. I've included a teaser graphic of the first line of the book below.

Here's a lovely widget - only 27 days left!!

I'm giving away a Kindle Copy of FORBIDDEN and a Paperback copy of FORBIDDEN to two lucky winners! 

Just leave a comment here! Easy-peasy. Included in your prize packages will be a beautiful jeweled bookmark, a Forbidden key-chain, and Middle Eastern earrings! 

Happy Reading!

Paris Cravings by Amazon #1 Best Selling Author for Clean Romance, Kimberley Montpetit

Can life really turn on a dime, a missed bus—or a stuck pastry shop door?

Chloe Dillard's life has always been complicated. Her mother is a neurotic romance novelist and her boyfriend, Mathew, has been pressuring her to go "all the way".

But after The Worst Night of Her Life, Chloe escapes on her Senior Class trip to the swoon-worthy city of Paris which takes her mind off her troubles—temporarily. On the final leg of her dream trip, Chloe squeezes in one final run for a last-minute box of decadent pastries. Add a broken shop door, subtract a broken four-inch heel from her cute strappy sandals, and Chloe ends up one stuck girl on the bakery shop floor with a sprained ankle.

Rescued by the shop owner’s dreamy son with chocolate-syrup eyes, the beautiful city of Paris suddenly becomes Chloe’s personal secret adventure. And even though Jean-Paul, the oh-so-kind La Patisserie shop boy is the gentlemanly guy Chloe has always dreamed of, even he has a girlfriend.

The police are tracking her down as a run-away, Mom’s having a nervous breakdown over her daughter’s “disappearance”, and Chloe’s just trying to have a Happily-Ever-After even as her dreams with Matt are swirling down the drain. What’s a girl to do in the most romantic city in the world?

Stealing Adda by Tamara Leigh
WRITER’S BLOCK, NIBBLED NAILS, PLAGIARISM, OH MY! AND DID I MENTION ROMANCE? Life for Adda Sinclaire, New York Times best-selling author and historical romance writer extraordinaire, reads more like a country song than a breathless, bodice-bursting affair. For starters, she has no romance in her own life. That might have something to do with the fact that her husband—correction, ex-husband—ran off with Stick Woman, whom everyone knew would never be more than a mid-list author anyway. To add insult to injury (and another verse to the country song), her ex not only took their dog but gave it to Stick Woman. If that isn't enough, Adda has come down with a horrible case of writer's block, finds herself gifted with a Bible that is determined to speak to her, and is the unwitting target of a romance cover model's misdirected advances. Just when she catches her breath—and quite possibly the eye of a certain fabulously good-looking man (ahem…her new editor)—her arch-nemesis gives the pot one final stir.

Spy by Night by Jordan McCollum
After watching her parents’ marriage crash and burn, CIA operative Talia Reynolds doesn’t believe in “happily ever afters.” Besides, her job entails eighty-hour weeks, juggling a dozen covers and disguises, and tracking down a dangerous Russian spy ring. She hardly has time for romantic entanglements, even if she could let her guard down enough to get close to anyone.But all the rules she lives by could be broken when she meets aerospace engineer Danny Fluker.
Danny moved to Canada for a great job — and a chance to start over after a bad breakup. Dating definitely isn’t in his plans . . . until beautiful and enigmatic Talia throws a perfect storm right in his flight path. When he catches a glimpse of the real woman behind her façade, he has to get to know her better.
Talia has to find a Russian spymaster before he figures out she’s not who she claims, and failing to keep her two lives separate in the process could mean the death of more than just her budding relationship. Danny has to decide if a future with Talia — and facing the past — is worth the risk of getting hurt again. If they can break through the barriers keeping them apart (and avoid a major international catastrophe), they just might have a chance at being happy together.

Saving Grace by Michele Paige Holmes
From #2 Amazon Bestselling Historical Romance Author and Whitney Award Winner, Michele Paige Holmes, comes SAVING GRACE, a regency romance from the Hearthfire Romance series:

As each suitor proves less than desirable, Grace comes up with clever schemes, causing each to reject her. While staying at the mysterious Sutherland Hall, a middle-of-the-night mishap sends Grace into the arms of a stranger, Nicholas Sutherland—and provides inspiration for her grandest plan yet—one that will leave her reputation in tatters yet free both her and Helen from all possibility of marriage. 
Too late Grace regrets her rash actions when her father’s last choice, Mr. Samuel Preston, proves to be a gentleman and a friend. But Samuel is the sworn enemy of Nicholas Sutherland, the man responsible for her “ruin.” Now instead of being free, Grace is caught between two men—each with his own agenda.
