Zane (AI, #2) hit USA Today Best Seller list!!!


USA Today Best Seller!!!


I think I'm still recovering from my mild heart attack this morning. Ok, so maybe it wasn't a heart attack, but I don't know that I've ever been so overcome with emotion. This is HUGE. I think I'm still in shock.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. But more importantly, thank you for purchasing a copy of Zane because a portion of the proceeds from all copies of Zane (and Kaleb) for the month of May are going to benefit The Keith Milano Memorial Fund, benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

XOXOXO,
~Nic~

The Keith Milano Memorial Fund was established to help raise awareness about the devastating and deadly disease that is mental illness.

Keith’s spirit and laughter is kept alive through our efforts to increase awareness about mental illness and to raise money for education and imperative research. Keith often struggled with society’s perception of mental illness. Our hope is that by having the strength to say that Keith was “Bipolar” we can strip away the stigma and help others to be more open about their disease.

Because this hits close to home...


Colt and I have been talking recently (although as a friend of mine pointed out, married people tend to do this) but this was a special conversation. As many of you know, May is Mental Health Awareness Month and because this subject hits really close to home, we want to show our support by donating a portion of the proceeds from all sales of Zane and Kaleb during the month of May to the Keith Milano Memorial Fund which benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). 

Not many people know this about me (other than my close friends and family) but I suffer from depression and have for many years. Although I've been on medication (different types through the years with the help of my doctor), I still go through serious bouts from time to time. My depression is not associated with anything specific, in fact, it hits randomly and can be when everything is going absolutely perfect in my life as happens to a lot of people. I have the loving support of my amazing family, but I know at times, they are confused on what they can do to help. Little do they know, but their love and understanding is all I need. 

Please take a moment to visit the page below or the Facebook page dedicated to Keith and show your support.

Zane is HERE!!!!


Zane (Alluring Indulgence, #2) 

Available NOW!!!

(Links)


Vanessa Carmichael
will never forget that horrible day for as long as she lives. With Zane fully on the mend from the brutal attack he suffered right in her very own yard, she knows she should be grateful, which she is. She also knows that walking away from Zane might be the only way to keep him safe. Despite her denial, V knows she can’t trust her own heart, especially when it comes to the youngest Walker brother, but he’s not the kind of man who will walk away when there is something he wants. He wants her even if it isn’t safe for him, and she’s not sure she is strong enough to walk away. 

Zane Walker might have been brutally attacked and after months in the hospital, walked away with his life spared, but now that he’s out of the hospital, he has only one goal in mind. Getting the girl. From the first time he kissed her, Zane knew V was the one for him. He also knew that getting her wasn’t going to be as easy as he hoped. She’s stubborn and the walls she has erected around her heart are nearly impenetrable. However, there’s one thing about Zane – he never gives up. And he’s not about to start now. 

Can V learn to open her heart to the one man who is desperate to get past those walls she has erected, or will she walk away to protect him? How long will Zane allow her to deny what he knows is growing between them? Or is the only option to obscure the underlying emotions with spine tingling lust? 

When V and Zane come together, smoke detectors go on the fritz, but when they bring Zane’s best friend Beau into the mix, extra fire extinguishers are needed.

Kaleb (Alluring Indulgence, #1)

(Links)

Zoey Stranford might’ve had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she’s a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty nine, her libido decides to ramp into high gear and the only thing she can focus on is the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door who is definitely not a boy anymore? 

Kaleb Walker has had his eye on Zoey for close to twenty years, but never before has he considered taking their friendship to the next level, no matter how many fantasies he’s had about her over the years. That doesn’t explain why Kaleb is hell bent on having her – in as many ways as possible. 

It doesn’t take long before the flames start burning bright and hot, and the two of them burn up the nights and the days as they explore each other’s forbidden fantasies. But can their friendship survive a business transaction or the new friends with benefits clause? Or will they realize that they’ve been overlooking something much deeper that’s been right in front of them all along?

Warning: This book contains sexual encounters and graphic language that some readers may find objectionable, including, but not limited to m/f/m encounters, anal sex, exhibitionism, and voyeurism. Consider yourself warned! Contains graphic material that is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.
