It's here. It's time. I'm ready. Are you?

It's August, which means it's hot most everywhere, but trust me, it's hotter in Texas.

Don't Mess With Texas is out today, August 23rd, and I'm a happy girl. I just finished the book Blame it on Texas, the second novel in the Hotter in Texas series. Let me tell you, I'm having a blast with the Texan PIs. And the really good news is that Don't Mess With Texas is discounted to $5.99, so make sure you snag yourself a copy. Dallas and Nikki, and Tony (Dallas's brother) and his estranged wife LeAnn, will make you laugh, sigh, giggle, and maybe even cry.

If you've been a fan of the humorous romantic suspense novels I wrote for Dorchester, I have great news! All of the books are now available in digital format at Amazon (for the Kindle) and Barnes and Noble (for the Nook.) Plus, I have a limited number of print copies of the original books still available. All the details are at my website –

Also mark your calendars for October 11th. Writing as C.C. Hunter, I have the second book in my Shadow Falls series, Awake at Dawn, hitting the bookstores. Yep, I’m a proud mama! lol

I also have three events happening in the Houston area. If you live close, please drop by and say hello. I’d love to see you. Also, don’t forget, I post every other Tuesday at Killer Fiction. So if you guys need a laugh, just surf right over, I give away giggles for free.

Don't Mess With Texas,
On Shelves - August 23rd

Nikki Hunt thought her night couldn't get worse when her no-good, cheating ex ditched her at dinner, sticking her with the bill. Then she found his body stuffed in the trunk of her car and lost her two-hundred-dollar meal all over his three-thousand-dollar suit. Now not only is Nikki nearly broke, she's a murder suspect.

Former cop turned PI, Dallas O'Connor knows what it's like to be unjustly accused. But one look at the sexy-though skittish-suspect tells him she couldn't hurt anyone. The lead detective, Dallas's own brother, has the wrong woman and Dallas hopes a little late-night "undercover" work will help him prove it . . .

Awake at Dawn
by C.C. Hunter
Book 2 in Shadow Falls
Available October, 2011

Kylie Galen thought her life was a mess before she went to Shadow Falls Camp. However, now that she's discovered she's not human, the problems presenting themselves are anything but normal.

She's determined to uncover the answer to her supernatural heritage, but with a ghost insisting someone Kylie loves is about to die, her newly developed sixth sense telling her someone is watching her and a rogue vampire on a murdering rampage, Kylie's quest for answers is on hold. As if her life isn't difficult enough, just when she's about to give her heart to Derek, he starts pulling away. When Lucas comes back, Kylie feels more conflicted than ever. Kylie's weekend with her mom should have been just the break Kylie needs, but it turns out to be her breaking point. Discovering her heritage may not ever matter if she doesn't survive.
