All about the couples...who's your favorite? Giveaway!

Hi!  I’m back again!  When we last met, I told you a little bit about my latest novel, DON’T LET GO. 
And we were talking about great hot couples, and on that note, I’d like to introduce a few of mine.    J  First up—because they were first up—was Dani and Alex from THE REASON IS YOU.  There was a new guy thrown in the mix, too—Jason.  But Dani and Alex had a history and a connection that went beyond…well, let’s just say “the norm”.  I so had the hots for Alex.  J

And then there was Ben and Emily.  Sigh… from BEFORE AND EVER SINCE.  You know, I love all my couples, and I would like to say I love them equally, but there was just something about Ben and Emily.  The magnetism, the snark between them, the heat of their history, and the reactions every time they saw each other after 20 years apart… And I say all that like I had nothing to do with it, but honestly I didn’t.  I never do.  My characters come to me, and all I do is blurt out their story.  I even had a button made up for Ben…because he’s a hot HOT carpenter/tool guy, and I just couldn’t get enough of him. 

Annnnnnd then there was Andie and Jesse in JUST ONE DAY.   A big nasty storm and a hot, hot chemistry while trapped in a Texas diner alone together.  Nothing like a little stress to throw two people in the right circumstances, you know?  This was my first novella to write, and it was so much fun. 

In DON’T LET GO, my latest couple is Noah and Jules.  This book is about first love and second chances. 

Here’s the DON’T LET GO back cover blurb for you:
Noah Ryan and Jules Doucette spent every moment together, first as best friends and later as young lovers. The two had planned a life together—until one unspeakable decision tore them apart for good.

Twenty-six years later, Jules is still carefully living the life her mother planned out for her. She’s running her mother’s store, living in her mother’s house, following her mother’s rules, and keeping the secrets her mother made her bury.

Then Noah comes home and any sense of an ordered life flies out the window. Noah’s return does more than just stir up old memories—it forces Jules to see her life in a whole new way and uncovers secrets even she didn’t know were buried.  Secrets that could easily destroy her world once more.

All my books can be found on my Goodreads page, on my Amazon page, on my website

What I liked about your stories is that the plot is not predictable. One doesn't know what's going to happen!
