I’ve been promising you all an update on THEIRS TO KEEP, book 1 of the Tangled Hearts trilogy which I had originally planned to publish last fall. I’m happy to say that things have been finalized and that Theirs to Keep will release October 22 of this year! So not a long wait at all and definitely something to tide you over until the Surrender trilogy debuts next February :)
Since I am self publishing this trilogy, it gives me more control over pricing and distribution. I’ll be offering the book at a lower price than my trade editions of the past, and because I’m self publishing it, there will be no geographical restrictions. The book will be available worldwide in digital AND in print.
The print edition will be offered only through online retailers in print on demand. It won’t be stocked in the usual physical bookstores as my other books are, but it was important to me not to exclude my print readership so I ensured that you can at least order the print edition online.
If you saw the original covers on my website or last Fall when I had originally planned to release the first book, then please note that the covers will be different and redesigned. The story remains the same however and if you haven’t yet seen the blurb check it out below.
When Cade Winslow and Merrick Sullivan find Elle hiding in the cabinet of a gun store, they know they can’t just walk away from the fragile woman with no memory of who she is or who tried to kill her. Merrick is training for the title shot in the heavyweight division as a mixed martial artist and can’t afford distractions, but neither can he turn his back on the woman who tugs at his heartstrings.
Elle feels safe with her two protectors, and the longer she spends with them, the more she realizes that she has no desire to remember her past. Not when it could compromise her future with Cade and Merrick.
Cade has his own set of concerns when it comes to Elle, and it quickly becomes clear to the two men that for the first time in their friendship, a woman is coming between them. But what if they just kept her there? Between them. Where she belongs.
The Tangled Hearts trilogy will be written and published in ADDITION to all of my other planned books/series and will not affect the publication of those planned stories. And as such, since I’m fitting the trilogy into an already crowded writing schedule, I won’t announce publication dates for Always Mine (book 2) and Forever Ours (book 3) until I’m certain that the date won’t change. Also, it is my plan not to have long periods of time between the books. Since the books are closely connected, it’s my hope to get them out to readers in fairly quick succession. But also note, even though the books follow the same cast of characters, none of the books end in cliffhangers. Promise! Each story arc will have a definite end and resolution and won’t cut off leaving you to wait for the next story to find out “what happens”
The Tangled Hearts trilogy is a series of stories I LOVE. Theirs to Keep has been written for two years now and wasn’t written under contract. I wrote it because I loved it and it had to be written. My readers have been so utterly fantastic to me this year, and every year of my career to date, and so I wanted this to be a special treat for all of you. An “extra” if you will. And I wanted to set a lower price point, again, as a thank you for supporting me and my career since it began seven years ago.
It’s very much in the same vein as the Colters’ Legacy series. It has the same “feel” and “tone” but a completely different story. But the Tangled Hearts trilogy incorporates MANY of my very favorite tropes. It’s over the top and utterly cracktastic, my favorite kind of book to READ, so it follows that it would be my very favorite kind of story to WRITE :)
I want this to be a FUN and heartfelt read for my readers. It’s emotional and angsty and while it is erotic in nature, the focus is not sexual at all. The emphasis is on the story, emotion and the romance, and in fact, there are few love scenes in the first book. Though the stories follow an untraditional relationship, at its heart, it’s still about romance and falling in love. And it’s absolutely possible to write a story about a polyamorous romance without it being nothing but endless sex and kink. MANY of my “menage” stories are not highly eroticized at all! (Stay With Me, Amber Eyes, Love Me, Still, just to name a few!)
So my hope is that you enjoy the Tangled Hearts trilogy and that you will love it as much as I do :))
