So without further ado. . .here's the final teaser to "What Endures" It's a little walk down memory lane. . .to when Jason and Megan meet for the first time. Enjoy!

            Megan’s head snapped up from the textbook she had been reading from. She spotted the owner of the voice and groaned. A little peace and quiet was apparently too much to ask for. “What?”
            Jason Kincaid’s eyebrows rose at her curt response. She would bet most females her age didn’t respond to him in that way. If her observation of her peers at school was any indication, the usual behavior around him involved lots of giggling, fawning and other actions that made her want to barf. Sometimes Megan was ashamed of her gender. “I’m about to do some drills.”
            His eyes widen in surprise before they narrowed. “So you might want to leave.”
            “Last time I checked, you didn’t own this park.”
            He shrugged, coming closer. “I just don’t want you to get hurt.”
            “I’m sitting behind home plate,” she pointed out. “If your drills have you throwing or hitting anything behind that maybe baseball’s not your sport.”
            His face stilled in shock before he burst out laughing. “Damn. You don’t pull any punches.”

Teaser Thursday!

Time for another teaser!

Last week we had a sweet scene between Megan and Jason. In honor of this blog's title, it's time for a little sexiness. . .

           [Jason's] mind felt the need to try once again to put the brakes on things. He pushed her tousled hair from her face, trying not to focus on her kiss-swollen lips, or the way her heaving chest was causing a breast to peek in and out of her unbuttoned shirt. Somehow he found his voice. “We. . . .I don't think. . .”
            “No,” she admonished. “Don’t think. Just. . . .just feel.”
            “Megan. . .”
            She leaned in and kissed him lightly. “No regrets,” she whispered against his lips before she kissed him again. He responded instinctively and kissed her back, passionately and deeply. Then all thoughts of stopping were wiped from his mind as he let himself do as she instructed - feel.

TWO WEEKS until the book's released. It is now up on Goodreads. Did you add it to your "To Read" list?

Teaser Thursday!

It's Thursday! Time for another teaser.

This one is a sweet and cute one between Megan and Jason as he lets her know he has. . .ways of trying to recover his memories.


            “So is the interview over?” she asked lightly.
            He grinned and she caught the mischievous twinkle in his eye which should have warned her that he had something up his sleeve. “Not quite. I do have one other question.”
            The warning bells finally sounded in her head. “What question?”
            His grin widened, as he leaned forward on the table. “When did you get that tattoo on your hip?”
            She stared at him as her mind raced, trying to process what he had just said. He met her gaze calmly, as if waiting for her to put the pieces together.
            “How’d you know. . .“ Was he remembering she wondered? Something about his expression, however, told her that this particular bit of knowledge was not the result of a recollection but something sneakier.
            “Home movies.”
            “Home mov-“ she started and stopped suddenly as the answer came to her. She looked at him with wide, questioning eyes and he nodded slowly in confirmation.
             Suddenly, a mental image of the beach house popped into her mind and she realized much too late that the house was brimming with personal things of her. . of him. . .of them. And then she started to panic, doing a mental inventory of the collection of home movies that she and Jason had and how each one had been made. Which one of those had revealed her tattoo to him? For one brief, horrifying instant, she actually wondered if they had ever made one of those home movies. A part of her wanted to rush right out to the beach house that instant and start gathering up those DVDs.

Three weeks exactly until the book is released! A lot of stuff is coming up. . .including interviews, a book blitz and giveways! If you know someone who likes romance novels. . .direct them to my Facebook page and ask them to "Like" it! Let's get the word out!

The Artist

By now you've seen the gorgeous cover art for "What Endures" so I wanted to take a moment and introduce you to the artist who designed it.

Samantha Dellinger has been a graphic artist for 15 years, 13 of them spent at the York Daily Record. She is also a fine artist, who still enjoys creating works of art the "old fashioned way" - with pencil and paper or brush and canvas. I've recently taken some painting classes and I can tell you - this is not easy! I have the utmost respect for those who can take a brush and paint and create extraordinary images on canvas. . .or even on a pad of paper with a pencil because I can't draw at all!

In addition to her artistic talent, Sam is a wonderful person, with more than enough patience to work with me on this cover because let me tell you - she needed it! I basically gave her my vision of the cover like this -

"Well I'm looking for something on a beach or maybe a baseball field, maybe where they're connected, but sort of not"

Not a lot to go on but Sam was game and sent in mock-ups and then tweaked and tweaked and tweaked some more until I was happy with it. And when I was having technical difficulties on uploading the cover to this site because of a file conversion issue, I sent Sam an e-mail thinking it'd take at least a day for her to respond. It took 20 minutes even though it was the end of a long work day for her.

Truly, she's amazing and I'm very grateful to her for bringing my vision of this book to life.

If you are interested in learning more about Sam's works -

Her art blog can be found at
Her Twitter and Instagram account is - blackcat911
And she also has an Esty store -

Don't forget to check back on Thursday for another teaser! And only 24 more days until the book is released! Spread the news!

First Teaser (Thursday)!

Due to the holiday yesterday - hope everyone in the United States had a wonderful time celebrating - I had to move our very first "Teaser Thursday" to today.

"Teaser Thursday" is just that. . .I'll be posting excerpts from the book, one every Thursday until the book is released on August 1, 2013 (which just so happens to be a Thursday! I hope you marked your calendars!)

Today's teaser is the set-up to the book. . .Megan talking to the doctor after Jason's accident.

"It’s really quite remarkable,’ the doctor said, his voice sounding genuinely surprised. "We never expected this. This is. . it’s really uncharted territory."
"But the. . ." Megan’s voice faltered. She was having trouble processing what he was telling her. She had been sitting in the doctor’s office for close to an hour. Much of that time had been spent listening to the doctor explain how the brain worked and how it functioned and what they knew and what they didn’t know. But she had focused in on just a few key phrases.
            Long-term memory loss.
            No memories of the last 15 years.
            "I understand this is hard to take in," Dr. Glennon said softly.
            "I just. . . .I don’t understand how he can remember his childhood but not. . ." Again she faltered. She didn’t want to sound selfish, but the question remained. How could he not remember her? Them?

The Cover!

They say not to judge a book by its cover but well. . .we do.

So I hope you love this cover as much as I do. I think it captures the essence of the story so well.

A HUGE shout-out and thank you to Samantha Dellinger for her work on this beautiful cover. . .and for helping me work out some technical issues in posting it here! She is the best!
