If you like plenty of tension between your hero and heroine, you might like Autumn and Caden.

PS … this isn’t the cover, just mood art.  🙂

Here’s the blurb:

Seventeen-year-old Autumn Teslow arrives at her father’s job fair knowing she’ll never measure up to the perfect image of daddy’s little girl—her twin sister. Wearing anger management issues like a second skin won’t help Autumn win her dad’s approval for the big trip she’s been planning—or meet his condition that she successfully completes a summer internship for college first. Autumn’s cool unravels when her sister lectures against disappointing the family again. So when a young, bearded guy steps through the crowd to settle the growing argument between siblings, Autumn lashes out, dubbing him a “Duck Dynasty wannabe.”

At Nineteen, Caden Behr is clueless as to why his man parts are threatened by the fearsome girl before him. He only came to find an intern for his recreational equipment company. Unfortunately, the only candidate left is the girl who just told him off. Without her, he’ll never prove to his CEO mother that he’s ready for more responsibility.

Autumn and Caden agree that if they can keep from killing one another, they’ll reach their goals and never have to see each other again. Which is what they want. Until it isn’t. Because despite her best efforts to scare him off, and his fading desire to push her in the lake, they’re beginning to enjoy the time they spend together. Yet pride is a hard habit to break. And if neither will admit their changing feelings, they could lose a whole lot more than one summer.

So, what do you think?

I’m mildly (see below) excited about the story coming out and would love to have your help!

V-Day feelin’ it or not so much?

Hi everybody.

So it’s February 14th and you know what that means … ♥ for those of you who love the day …  😦 for those of you who don’t.

If you met me in person and we were talking about ‘the day’, I might pretend to think Valentine’s Day is no big deal, play the holiday off. I might act aloof, maybe make excuses about how even if a guy asked me, I’d be way too busy washing my hair to go clubbing, or say I’d go to the movies but there’s nothing worth seeing, or that I can’t go to dinner because I’m on the caveman diet. I’d also be full of crap. We’ve all had those days, or years.  I myself was cynical, jaded and suspicious. Attractive right? Well I’d been burned.

I’m not so much the mushy type, but I am a romantic. I like getting flowers, I like it when I get kissed on the forehead and I like reading books where a guy says amazing things to the heroine. Things that I’d gladly bash her perfect little head in for so I could take her place in the scene. Er, if the scene were real, which meant the guy actually existed … oops which means so does the heroine, and I’m now a psycho killer.

Never mind.

Point is that girl was never me. Not really. Until it was. Because I met Harrison.

All that to say I am throwing my usually cool, I don’t care attitude to the four winds and share some quotes that sort of make me *sigh* Yeah. Words I got to appreciate once the right guy fought for me, broke me down and built me up again.

Here goes …

♥ “For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.” ~ Judy Garland

♥ “The moment my lips touch yours, it will be your first kiss. Because if you’ve never felt anything when someone’s kissed you, then no one’s ever really kissed you. Not the way I plan on kissing you.”  ~ Collen Hoover, Hopeless
♥ “Baby, no one would ever make the mistake of using the word ugly with you. Especially with me around.” He pushed the curls off my face, his fingers leaving a burning trail. “Everything about you is beautiful and sexy as hell.”  ~ Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits

♥ “I’m going to walk over to you,” I say, taking one step at a time in her direction like I’m talking down a jumper. “I’m going to put my arms around you and I’m going to hold you,” I pause before taking the last step, “and you’re going to let me.”  ~ Katja Millay The Sea of Tranquility

♥ “Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living. You said I killed you–haunt me then. The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe–I know that ghosts have wandered the earth. Be with me always–take any form–drive me mad. Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!”  ~Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

♥ “I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.” ~ Charlotte Bronte, Jane Erye

♥ “We live and breathe words. …. It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt–I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted–and then I realized that truly I just wanted you.”  ~Cassandre Clare, Clockwork Prince

Well … at some point I just have to stop because I could go on all day. If you love young adult romace I bet you could, too. So what about you? Can you leave me with a favorite quote or book that pulls you from quiet respectability to sappy romantic? Or maybe you can share why you don’t ‘do’ V-day? Come on … if I did it so can you 🙂

Love you guys!
