Into The Fire Just Got Hotter!

ItF_300INTO THE FIRE moved to the Brazen imprint of Entangled Publishing! It has a new cover, new blurb, some new bits and pieces, and a (slightly) chewier ending. You heard it here first!

She’s cooking up a recipe for revenge…

Heir to the Calabrese restaurant empire, Jackson Calabrese can buy whatever he wants—except creativity. He can craft perfect paella, but if his new restaurant is going to take New York by storm, he’ll need help. And there’s only one chef with the culinary creativity to reinvent their menu: former rival—and lover—Lila Grant. The one woman with all the right ingredients to drive Jackson wild. And damned if he doesn’t want another taste.

During their time at the culinary academy, Lila brought the heat in the kitchen and between Jackson’s sheets. Seducing her back into his bed—and his kitchen—should be easy. But after the way things ended between them, Lila isn’t giving anything away for free. Jackson may have made her an offer she can’t refuse, but she wants revenge, and she’ll take it served hot…one delicious bite at a time.

Stay tuned for SEDUCING THE PLAYBOY, Book 2 of the Hot Nights series in March! I have a special offer for newsletter subscribers, so if you want a deal, sign up here: Amanda’s Awesome Sauce.

What do you think of the new cover? :-) Stay warm, y’all!

Looking For Joy

Hi folks! I am ever in that quest for balance. Joy. Human being versus human DOING. Life, not work. This is one of my favorite pictures from life.


 Reach for the flowers!

I loved her soft baby rolls. I remember exactly what they felt like beneath my palms when I lifted her up. My HANDS remember. They tingle when I think about it. The dip of her eyelid is so sweet. The focus, the fingertip. I had probably told her to be careful. Oh, the tender back of her neck, the dip in her skull, my mouth waters. She is still that sweet.
