YOU GUYS! OMG! Look who stopped by THIS WEEK to tell us about her latest release!
I KNOW! How awesome is THIS? Pretty freakin’ awesome. So sit back and relax and let Jove tell you all about her Cake.
As a parent, I love all my kids. I want to nurture them and help them grow. And I hope I’ll be brave enough to turn them loose when it’s their time.
As an author, I feel the same about my books. I spend time with them, grow them from infancy to completed project, and then, ultimately, trust them to stand on their own in front of the world.
It’s an intimidating prospect. And with every new release, I ask myself if I did everything I could have to make it the best book possible. I obsess over whether others will like it or not. I hope that it finds a home on many, many, many bookshelves, both literal and virtual.
And that bring me to Cake, my most recent release. It’s different than the others. Smaller, more compact. Hopefully just as strong and nimble.
Cake is a novella, a sexy romance about two women, one inconvenient wedding, and a shared love of cake. That’s what it says on the cover. The blurb, of course, is longer. But that sums it up very succinctly.
I hope you read Cake. And I hope you love it as much as I do.
Kelly and Elana’s relationship is a recipe for disaster. First, they meet at a wedding, and that never works. Second, Kelly’s older brother is marrying Elana’s ex-lover. And third, Elana is still painfully, undeniably in love with said ex.
When it comes to other people’s lives, Elana Verdad is an expert. As a licensed psychologist and life coach, she helps people overcome obstacles. Her own life, on the other hand, is a disaster. Her lover left her for a man, so she drove over his mailbox accidentally on purpose. Now, not only did the judge take away her driver’s license, he also assigned her to community service at the local women’s prison. In what may be her worst idea ever, Elana decides to crash their wedding.
Kelly Miller may not understand her brother’s rush to marry his girlfriend, but when he asks her to bake his wedding cake, it’s not as if she can refuse. She’s in the catering business after all. At the wedding, she meets a beautiful, complicated, and seriously damaged woman. Although Kelly knows it’s crazy, she’s drawn to her nonetheless.
Despite the reasons they shouldn’t be together, there’s still an undeniable something between them. All they need is a chance to enjoy their slice of the cake.
