About Regret Me Not

 

“You just need to believe. Believe in us. Believe in me.”

 

For Mackenzie Green life is full of regrets; regrets from choices she made in the past, regrets for the things she’ll never see in her future. She regrets letting her grades slip while her sister was in rehab, ensuring she’ll never break away from the rumor-run, small town she lives in. She regrets breaking up with her future All American football playing boyfriend, Brayden Turner out of fear of getting hurt. Most of all she regrets every decision she made leading up to the night that changed her life forever.

 

It’s only after Brayden cuts her off completely that Mackenzie realizes how much she wants him in her life. She’s learns that losing what you love breaks you, but sometimes it’s the only way to tap into your inner strength.

 

Can Mackenzie find the courage to learn from her mistakes and move forward or will she spend her days consumed with regrets? Is it too late to convince Brayden she wants him in her life and that she’s in it for the long haul? Most of all, can she accept that sometimes bad things happen no matter how hard you try to protect yourself from them?

 

Can she put it all behind her or will she live an unfulfilled life full of regrets?

 
 

 

Man Up Playboy Cover

Man Up Playboy

Have you seen the cover of my new Book Man Up Playboy, scheduled to release on September 25th? Looking at the whole cover, I can tell you without a doubt this is my favorite cover. And I think CT Cover Creations really captured the essence of Cooper Sutton. What do you think? I’d love to know!

Man Up Playboy Full

With just over a week before release, let me tell you a little about Cooper Sutton.

 

No one knows the man behind the face.

 

Cooper Sutton loves nothing more than living up to his reputation as a playboy. That is until he meets Selene Davis in a coffee shop. Unlike the girls he’s known before, she doesn’t fall for his good looks and witty charm. She makes him work for every bit of her time and attention.

 

Haunted by memories of his childhood sweetheart, Cooper doesn’t believe in love, marriage or monogamy. And much to his delight, neither does Selene. She appears to be his perfect match. Until she changes the rules of the game. And he finds himself knee deep in a committed relationship.

 

When the stakes are raised, Cooper’s faced with a decision. Can he put the past behind him and move forward with Selene, or will he push love and happiness beyond his reach forever?

 

Due to language and sexual content, this book is intended for mature audiences.

 

To celebrate Man Up Playboy, I’ll be having a Facebook release party on Friday Sept 25 from 7-11pm EST. I hope to see you there!

Release Day!

IT’S LIVE! I’m so excited to hand over my Party Boy to you. I’ve had a lot of fun writing this, and can only hope you enjoy reading it just as much!!!

 
Man Up Party Boy

Noah York is looking forward to the beach vacation he’s been planning with his best friend, Cooper. He has visions of relaxing days on the sand and fun nights with the girls. However, all his plans come crashing down when Cooper abandons him for a trip to Italy. Not wanting to leave his friend in a lurch Cooper arranges for his sister to take his place. Noah hasn’t seen Lexi in years and isn’t looking forward to spending a week with her or her attitude.

 

Lexi can’t stand party boy Noah. At least, that’s what she thinks. But when she sees him talking to a blonde at the bar on their first night in the beach town, jealousy takes over and she interrupts them with a kiss. One kiss leads to another. Before either of them realizes what’s happening passion and desire are awakened between them, but Lexi knows better than to fall for Noah. He is, after all, just a party boy

 

I’m also excited to let you know that all of my books are now available in paperback.

 

And last but not least, if you’d like to meet up and get a signed copy of my Party Boy, or any of my other paperbacks, I’ll be at the Yo Philly Author Event on May 16th. Tickets are free. I hope to see you there!

And Forever Release!

And ForeverI can’t believe today is finally here. This has been years in the making. When I first released For Always, I had no intention of continuing Jordan and Stephanie’s story. I thought it wrapped up well, but so many people reached out to me, asking for more, I had to start considering it. The decision to write And Forever wasn’t an easy one for me. Even as I wrote it, much like when I wrote To My Hero and Regret Me Not, there were many times I thought about scrapping the whole thing. Ultimately I didn’t because I didn’t want to disappoint my fans. I have to tell you, I am so excited about this release. If you fell in love with Stephanie and Jordan in For Always, I have no doubt you’ll love And Forever!
 
Here’s the first chapter of And Forever. Be sure to leave a comment and let me know if you’re excited, and what your thoughts are!
 
Chapter 1
 
The scent of death lingers nearby. Always. Only I don’t attract it like I once thought. I repel it, like a deflector shield. This is my lot in life, my special gift, to extend the days of those I love. That theory comes from Jordan; the keeper of my heart, and the love of my life!
 
I sigh. I don’t realize I made a sound until Jordan apologizes. Again.
 
“I’m sorry, Steph. I just don’t want to be distracted.”
 
“I know.”
 
He misunderstands. It’s a contented sigh. One that says I’m thrilled my boyfriend is driving me to school. It’s a sign of how surreal sitting next to him and knowing that he loves me is. How I can’t believe in a matter of hours he’ll be leaving me alone on my college campus, and I intend to savor each minute with him, every possible second. The sigh is the only chance I have of communicating any of these sentiments because he doesn’t want me to talk while he’s driving. I know just being together in the car for this length of time is challenging for him.
 
Jordan still suffers the after effects of a terrible car accident that killed his ex-girlfriend. Ex as in he broke up with her minutes before it happened. When he served as my unexpected prom date, I pressed him to admit his feelings for me. That’s what led to the break-up. Now he has to deal with the swamp of guilt-induced quick sand he’s been left in. It hasn’t been an easy road to get to where we are, but we worked through all that.
 
I hope.
 
“I’m doing the best I can, babe.”
 
“I know.” I don’t bother saying anything further to reassure him that I’m not upset.
 
“Maybe you can find some music on the radio.”
 
Maybe I would if I could hear what’s on the radio. Every time I turn the volume up, he lowers it. The problem is he wants it down so low I can’t hear the music. I glance at his hands on the steering wheel. He holds it in a death grip. His knuckles are white, and I think his fingers might snap in two any moment.
 
“I’m fine. Just happy to be here with you.”
 
“Liar.”
 
“Am not.”
 
A car swerves slightly towards our lane. He lays on the horn and goes back to stoic silence. I hate that this is so hard for him. I want him to find his way back to being the carefree, flirtatious boy I fell in love with. I doubt he’ll ever go back to being that person, and it makes me sad. I don’t want him to carry all this pain for the rest of his life. I wish I knew how to make it better, but the only thing I can do is stand beside him and hope in time he’ll heal.
 
I turn to my window, watching the never-ending expanse of trees zoom by. I wish for a fleeting moment I’d gone in the other car with my mother and her new, at least new to me, boyfriend Eddie. I’d been clueless about Eddie, but after her health scare last week, she came clean.
 
“There’s someone I want you to meet,” she said when he showed up at our house to visit her.
 
At that point she had no choice. She’d been ordered to take a few days off of work, where they’d rendezvous during lunch. She’d been frightened when they first told her it looked like a heart attack and realized it was silly to keep him hidden away. I can’t imagine the cheesy conversations taking place in the other car, but I’m happy for her. My father died a decade ago and as far as I know she never dated before, so it’s about time she gives someone a chance.
 
“Sorry.” I hear the tension in his voice.
 
“No worries. It’s all good, as long as I’m here with you.”Always and Forever guy
 
I mean it, because even with the deafening silence, and the tension he carries on his shoulders every time we’re in a car together, there is nowhere else I’d rather be. From the first moment he spoke to me, he owned my heart. It’s branded with his name. I’d tried for four years to move on, to forget him, but that wasn’t an option for me. No one can hold a candle to him.
“Hey,” He pulls my attention back to the here and now. “You know I love you right?”
 
I smile. I’m sure it’s just the reaction he hoped for. It feels like that’s all I’ve done over the last week since he found me crying on the beach. I’ll never forget the wave of relief that washed over me when I found out he’d been spared from a terrible plane crash. He never made it on the plane because I called him at the last minute in an attempt to convince him to stay. Thank goodness he did.
 
I always believed myself to be the root cause of the bad things that happen to people around me. Jordan thinks I’m what keeps them hanging on. I don’t believe him, at least not yet. But having him try to convince me otherwise promises to be an amazing adventure.
