  About BURYING WATER:

 The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away. Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him? Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried. The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

Doon: A Bonus Scene


Destined For Doon - the second book in the Doon series releases September 2, and we have a bonus clip from the first book, DOON right here. 

You can read a review of the first book HERE

DOON Bonus Scene
Duncan’s Visit
Mackenna
(This scene takes place before chapter 15, first thing in the morning.)

“Why are you telling us what to do? We’re not your subjects.”
Though I had yet to form an opinion about what Duncan asked, I couldn’t help but bristle at his request. He’d rudely interrupted our breakfast to say he couldn’t stay because he had official business concerning the Centennial. Disappointment turned the pancakes in my stomach into hockey pucks.
Duncan raked his fingers through his already disheveled hair, making it even more chaotic. “Why did I expect ye to be reasonable? Since I canna accompany you today, I am requesting that you and Veronica remain in the castle with Fiona.”
At the first sign of dissention, Vee had retreated to the periphery of the scene, where she watched like an extra. “So we’re your prisoners again?”
Duncan blinked several times. His voice, when he answered me, was raspy with intensity. “You’re not my prisoner. Ye never were.”
He’d just informed me that I would have to spend the day with a royal babysitter. So I begged to differ. “What am I then?”
“You’re my—” He paused his dark velvet eyes suddenly miserable. “My—my guest from America.”
If I was truly his guest, as he claimed, I had a choice in the matter. “What if I say, ‘no’?”
Rather than argue, he clasped my hand in his and continued to plead his case. “Please, Mackenna. It would be a great comfort to know you were close by—and safe.”
Just a touch—his skin against mine—sent my heart into overdrive. Suddenly lightheaded, I had to grip the table with my free hand to steady myself. How dare he make me almost swoon!
“If ye will not do it for me, do it for your friend’s sake.”
A vision flashed of the beret-wearing attacker trying to hit a home run with Vee’s head. If Jamie hadn’t intervened, she might have died. Deflated, I agreed to Duncan’s demands. “Fine. We’ll stick around.”
The relief on his face almost made me feel sorry for giving him a hard time. “Thank you. Please allow Jamie and me to make it up to the both of you on the morrow.”
Like an invisible string, the mention of the king wanna-be propelled Vee forward. “How is your brother?”
Duncan favored her with an impish smile. “He’ll live. Jamie’s known for his particularly thick skull.”
Ha! So I wasn’t the only one to notice his freakish obstinacy.
“Oh. Well, I’m relieved to know he’s okay.” Vee, on the other hand, seemed attuned to the softer side of Prince Jamie.
Satisfied that he’d accomplished the purpose for his little visit, Duncan swaggered across the room. “It’s settled then. I will leave you in Fiona’s most capable hands. The castle has an excellent library if ye are so inclined.”
“Really? Thanks.” Vee’s eyes glazed over in literary rapture—my best friend had never met a book she didn’t like. So not only were we stuck in this gloomy castle, but now we would have to read as well. Duncan was sooo going to pay for this.
At the door, he made a low bow. “If ye will excuse me, I must take my leave. Until tonight, m’ladies.”
“Can’t wait!” I flashed him the Streetcar smile I’d perfected performing a Blanche DuBois monologue.
He paused, hand on the doorknob, to return my fake smile with his own genuine lopsided grin. “Just because you think me a right dense oaf, doesn’t mean I’m incapable of recognizing sarcasm when it hits me up alongside the head.” He cocked his right eyebrow in a deliberate display of superiority. “Even if I choose to forgive the source of said sarcasm because I’m a gentleman and she’s so lovely.”
With the last word and an infuriating wink, he made his grand exit. From behind me, Vee chuckled under her breath before returning to her blueberry pancakes. Sure, it was funny to her now—but just wait until Royal Emo Boy accosted her with another one of his mood swings.

Doon Summary: 




DOON…

Veronica doesn't think she's going crazy. But why can't anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months. 

But the Scottish countryside holds other plans. 

Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna's great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica's daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they've longed for...or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.

DOON is loosely based on the premise of the musical Brigadoon, with permission from the ALan Jay Lerner Estate and the Frederick Loewe Foundation. Follow the journey at http://www.DoonSeries.com

July 2014





Unofficial Summary:

Blair Walton isn't your average tattooed children's librarian. She's also one half of bestselling romance author, Scarlet Rose. Along with her bff Raine, she spends her nights writing books so steamy, she's afraid they would shock her Southern conservative grandmother to death, if she knew about them. Blair and Raine keep their smut peddling ways a secret from everyone, including family.

On deadline for their latest book and out of ideas, Raine suggests (demands) that Blair find a guy and "do some research." It just so happens that Blair has a guy that's ready and willing. Declan Bennet has all the qualifications: He's British, looks fabulous in a suit and gets bonus points for being a single dad. But what started out as a research project quickly turns into something much more. Someone else is writing this love story and Blair has completely lost control. But will Declan still feel the same way when he finds out the truth about Blair and her secret motives?

A Playlist: Teaching Roman by Gennifer Albin


TEACHING ROMAN by Gennifer Albin

June 2014


BOOK SUMMARY:


Jessica Stone has her life in perfect order until her perfectly boring boyfriend Brett puts things in perspective. So when she receives a call to action from her heartbroken best friend Cassie, she ditches her plans for Winter Break in gloomy Olympic Falls and sets off to Mexico for some fun in the sun.

Determined to use her oceanview to prep for her MCATS, she doesn't plan to run into anyone from Olympic State, least of all the cute communications prof she's been crushing on for a year. When he unexpectedly saves the day, the two are thrown together in a distinctly extracurricular activity.

Roman Markson doesn’t expect to run into anyone he knows from Olympic Falls while visiting his family in Puerto Vallarta, especially not a former student. Although Jess Stone has a way of catching men’s attention, a relationship with her is strictly off-limits. However, the rules feel less strict in Mexico, so they agree to a plan: one week in paradise and nothing more.

But avoiding each other back on campus is harder than they anticipated, especially when they can’t stay away from one another. Neither is sure what they have to learn—and lose—before life teaches them a lesson they’ll never forget.
