Break Out Your Pumpkin Spice!

I love fall. Don’t you? Monday was officially the first day of fall. Never mind that Starbucks has been selling pumpkin spice lattes for over a month. Now in Texas, it will still be warm for a while. But if the temperature dips below 75, everyone here drags out their fall clothes.

After a long, hot Texas summer, even the hint of fall makes me happy. I love watching the leaves change color and that crispness in the morning air when I go for my daily walk. I’m ready to buy my pumpkins to set by my front door and dust off my front door wreath of fall leaves. And I can’t wait to curl up with a blanket and a book, and drink hot cocoa in my warmer (not sleeveless) PJs.

I can feel the fall coming, especially in the morning.  There is just that hint of a temperature drop.  Yeah, I know in the South, we’ve got to wait a while until true fall arrives.  But until then, I might have to crank down my air conditioner, light a pumpkin scented candle and pretend.

What to you look forward to with the coming of fall?

Don’t Forget!

Don’t Breathe a Word comes out November 5th, but you can preorder it now from Amazon, Indiebound, Barnes & Noble, Apple iBooks, Goodreads and at Forever Books.

Police detective Juan Acosta doesn’t only carry scars on the outside. He’s filled with guilt and anger ever since his undercover job led to the murder of those he loved the most. Now he’s living for one thing: revenge. That is, until Juan meets his beautiful new neighbor.
Vicki Holloway prides herself on being capable and independent, but her life is turned upside down when her sister Sara is killed by an abusive ex. Fearing for the safety of her niece, Vicki and the little girl go into hiding…resurfacing in Texas with new identities.

Juan finds his once-frozen heart thawing around Vicki, but he knows she’s hiding something. Juan needs answers, but Vicki isn’t talking. She has to keep her secrets if she wants to keep Bell safe, which means resisting her growing feelings for the sexy, scarred man next door. But when Juan’s quest for justice brings danger to her door, divulging the truth might be the only thing that keeps her alive.

Includes the bonus novella “Hot Target” by April Hunt!

  1. I love your books!!! I enjoy immensely how cleverly you keep the different parts of the story going all at the same time. It is interesting and riveting how the suspense builds and even though it is fiction I find myself getting anxious about both the main characters and the sympathetic “bad guys” also in some of your books!!! I find your characters so human, endearing, funny and people I would like to know and have a friendship with! The romances between your characters are so sweet, caring, warm, sensual, passionate and I really enjoy how you write the intimate scenes…… They are some of the best I have ever read and I read a lot! I have all of your books and have pre-order the new one to come in November. I just wanted to tell you how much I admire your work. You have given me many pleasurable hours!!!! Keep writing.

  2. I love Halloween but here in WV, Fall can either second summer with 80 degree temps (which I prefer) or cold, wet and with snow……I’m not ready for the high electric bills! Lol I do like pumpkin spice desserts. Never had it in a coffee beverage. No Starbucks within an hr and a half drive from here. Hahaha.

    Can’t wait to read your Don’t Breathe a Word!! Will some of the same characters in the first book be in this one?
