I’m approaching a big deadline, so instead of the traditional blog today, I wanted to share a few items of news:

–Here’s my new cover for This Loving Feeling, my next Montlake book which is releasing July 19. Meet Samantha and Lukas!
I’m really excited for this book! If you’ve read the other Mirror Lake books, you’ve seen Sam first as a young college student tormenting her brother Brad, and then as a young woman trying to forget Lukas Spikonos, the sexy bad-boy auto mechanic who aged out of the foster system and who almost killed himself on his motorcycle by nearly wrecking into a chicken truck. And who finally left Mirror Lake…and Sam…behind.
Well, six years have passed–Sam’s all grown up now and Lukas has become a wildly popular recording artist…and he’s back! Here’s the blurb from Amazon:
Samantha Rushford’s future looks bright: the high school art teacher is getting ready to leave Mirror Lake and move to Boston with her ambitious boyfriend, and she hopes a diamond ring is just around the corner. But her past still has a hold on her—especially the bittersweet memory of her rebellious ex, who kissed her passionately before he left town without a word.
Since then, Lukas Spikonos has parlayed his rebel ways into life as an up-and-coming recording artist. When he shows up for a surprise gig at the high school prom, Sam is more dumbstruck than starstruck—he used the words of a poem she wrote about their breakup to create a number one hit. But Lukas hasn’t returned just to impress students; he’s facing some real-life responsibilities and needs Sam’s help. But she has her own unresolved issues about the life she wants to lead. Will the music—and the pull of true love and family—put their hearts back in harmony?
This Loving Feeling is up for pre-order on Amazon for a special pre-order price (the price will go up once the book releases.) (Note: it’s not necessary to read the other books first, even though it might be fun!) You can check out more here.
Okay, back to writing. Happy Saturday!
