Thank you to the amazing Luna Sol for this gorgeous collage of pictures from the books.  That is Heath Hutchins and Barbara Palvin as muse for Neil and Elaina.

So, Cherry Girl has now been born into the Blackstone Affair family and the secret is out.  The book I really never planned on writing, but had a voice, and was determined to get out of my head and onto the page, has arrived.  The story of Captain Neil McManus, a soldier in the British Army Special Forces, and Elaina, the girl who has loved him since she was ten years old.  It is a more romantic story than any book I’ve written, and will hopefully bring out some emotions for the reader.  Cherry Girl is in the Blackstone Affair world, but is a standalone novel that can be enjoyed without reading the other books.  Ethan is on the page, making the ladies swoon and shake their heads at him at the same time, of course.  And, there will be more to come in the future for Neil and Elaina I am guessing…and Elaina’s hottie of a brother, too…  *sneaky giggle and a cough* “Ian Morrison.”   I enjoyed writing every word of Neil and Elaina’s love story, and I hope my fans will enjoy reading.  Below are the buy links for Cherry Girl.

Blessings to all, and now I have to go rejoin the world of the living, get my Christmas tree up, and be a wife and a mom again.
