Beyond Redemption – Releasing Next Week!

I’m excited to announce that the next installment in the Wine Country Romance Series — Beyond Redemption — will release on Tuesday, June 24th!

Beyond Redemption is a novella that takes readers back to Redemption Road Winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. It’s a hot, sexy and sweet extension of Audrey and Tyson’s story, focused on Rebecca and Ray.

If you haven’t read Redemption Red, check it out here!

And if you’re a blogger and would like to help with the cover reveal for Beyond Redemption (so pretty… eeek!), the reveal is being hosted by the lovely Giselle at Xpresso. Sign up here!


I won!

I never win anything. Well, I did actually win a couple gift cards at my company’s holiday party this year… but aside from that…

But I won a raffle recently! It was hosted by the Combined Book Exhibit, and they took my book — Redemption Red — and hosted it in their booth at last weekend’s American Library Association show in Philadelphia! They also hosted me on their blog… check it out!

Remembering Our Vets

Most of us know at least one person who has served our country in the military. Some of us know many who have, and some of us know of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our nation. It is those we honor today. Thank you to those who serve, and those who have died to preserve the life that we enjoy.

You know that this means a lot to me — my father and grandfather both served in the military, and I am a military spouse. My husband is an active duty Marine, and I couldn’t be more proud of him.

In honor of our veterans, REDEMPTION RED, which features a veteran enlisted Marine, is half off at Amazon. This deal is on for today only – please share it!

Redemption Red is live!

Happy book birthday to Redemption Red! The book is live today on Amazon, and A Rare Vintage is free all week to celebrate!

Here are the details on the newest Wine Country Romance:

A culinary student, a troubled ex-Marine and a winery with a delectable Pinot Noir…
When Audrey Montgomery’s carefully planned life collides with the self-destructive path Tyson Dawes is on, neither of them can predict what will happen next.
Audrey is a diligent and self-reliant culinary student at Portland’s prestigious Cordon Bleu. She has a clear picture of her future in mind, and it allows little room for the steely-eyed and tormented young man she bumps into by chance while wine tasting with friends.
Tyson Dawes had a perfect childhood, raised among the vines in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. But even the most idyllic of upbringings couldn’t have prepared him for what he would face as a Marine. He returns to his childhood home angry and haunted by the storms of what he has faced and by those he has lost.
Do opposites truly attract? Can the lure of Audrey’s apparent clarity and innocence offer Tyson hope in the face of his emptiness?

Some early praise has been fantastic:

“Redemption Red had me smiling, laughing and crying…it’s a refreshing New Adult Romance read and I highly recommend it.” – Michelle Lynn, author of Love Me Back

“…a fun read from start to finish…I definitely recommend this one!” – J.L. Fynn, author of The Long Game

“Tyson stole my heart from his first appearance.” — Alison G. Bailey, author of Present Perfect

Please go pick it up today, and if you enjoy it, please leave a review at Amazon and Goodreads!
