New Release: Captivated, by Perri Forrest


Blurb
London Tanner’s day just went from bad to worse.
She’s fresh off the weekend and shows up to the job that she loves, and has dedicated herself to for the past 12 years. In the middle of checking emails, and preparing to begin her day, Carter Hampton enters her office space and requests her presence in his office. Once there, she finds herself on the other end of accusations of fraud that she firmly denies. After arguing her point for what seems like forever, she soon hears the words, “Today is your last day”, pour from his mouth.
Defeated and broken, London decides to drop a bomb of her own, prior to her departure. Having had the last word, she leaves the building in tears and with her final paycheck in hand. With nowhere else to turn, she heads to the arms of the only person she knows can love her past the devastation of the moment.

Fearless Writer

I wonder how many potentially awesome (insert whatever your passion is here) the world is missing out on because they’re afraid to share their gift with us.  Fear is such an ugly thing, running around telling people that they aren’t good enough, aren’t smart enough, aren’t unique enough, that their voice doesn’t matter. Fear is a…

Scurred

(First off, I’m over at Quanie Miller’s blog today, talking about building your platform as an author! Check it out!) So I released a book today. Last night, technically, because it went live in less than an hour whereas it usually takes at least 2-3, sometimes up to 16. Anyway. It’s my first time venturing…

Catch Me If You Can

(if you have two minutes, watch the trailer below as well!) COMING DECEMBER 8TH Diligence. Focus. Agility. For Naomi Prescott, it’s not just a cute little saying. It’s a critical mantra, words to live by if she wants to retain her freedom, and more importantly, her life. Impeccable planning is the only way to ensure…

The Color of Love Blog Hop

It’s that time of the year where we celebrate our love for characters of color in romantic fiction in the Color of Love Blog Hop. I’m super passionate about characters of color in romance. Particularly, my absolute favorite genre, the one I read almost exclusively, is African American romance. Love absolutely comes in all colors,…

Sample Sunday: from Catch Me If You Can

What the hell am I doing here? I look so stupid right now, Naomi thought, as her second knock went unanswered. Unwilling to knock again, she wiped errant tears from her eyes and turned away from the door. What would her life had been like if it weren’t for that night? Maybe instead of being…

Sample Sunday: from Catch Me If You Can:

[ unedited, subject to change. enjoy 🙂 ] Relax. Relax. Relax. Naomi silently repeated those words like a mantra until her head, heart, and lungs caught up with each other and obliged that command. This wasn’t the time to freak out. Her freedom depended on not freaking out, so she ignored the throbbing pain in…

Sample Sunday: from Catch Me If You Can

(this excerpt has not been edited for grammar/spelling, but HAS been edited to remove spoilers. Enjoy!) It was the sound of music, pumping from the classroom where Naomi hosted her classes that brought Marcus to the front of the gym. Curious, he stepped into the area meant for parents to watch their kids during performances,…

About Nothing But Love

So, I did something I shouldn’t have done.  That “something” was promising a sequel to the story from Love and Other Things.  When I wrote “the end” on Tara, Kristin, and Val’s stories, for me, it was the end, but then I started hearing that people wanted more… so, I promised more, because you’re supposed to…
