Do you want a first look at my future releases?

Join Ava's Review Team!

Basically, my ARC/Review Team is a place for readers who want to be one of the first people to read my new books, and are also willing to leave a honest review of the ARCs they receive no later than one week after the book's release date.

It works like this:

  • You sign up for the review team here or click the box on the right sidebar. -->
  • One week prior to the listed release date, I send you an ARC.
  • The book is released to the general public, and you have a week from the release date to leave your review on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Goodreads.

So for Before You Go, ARCs will be sent out on February 3. Reviews would be due February 14. Easy peasy. :) Just as a head's up, space is limited on the review team, so grab a spot before membership is closed!

I'm so ready to release Before You Go into the wild. For the first time, I did POV chapters from the H and h. Not gonna lie--exploring Cade and letting the reader experience the story through his eyes really made me want to do the same for Jacob. Food for thought for the His Submissive Series sequel that's coming out later this year. :D

Thanks for reading! <3

New Year...New Releases!

I hope the holidays brought lots of love and laughter! This year, I have familiar romances and new heroes and heroines for y'all to fall in love with.<3

I have two releases coming out in February! The first is Before You Go, a romance featuring Megan Scott, Leila's sharp tongued BFF, and  Cade Wallace, the hunky alpha male action star.

Action movie star Cade Wallace knows better than anyone that being a public figure means that all eyes are on you, magnifying every success--and every failure.
After a string of box office duds, he signs on as a client to Whitmore and Creighton, a PR firm, determined to make a comeback. He can't get the feisty redhead that he met at a premiere out of his head. Their chemistry is electric, but it will take more than money and fame to win her heart. He'll have to face his demons, and a past he's trying hard to forget...

Megan Scott can't seem to avoid douchebags. As a teacher in an underfunded inner city school, she deals with coworkers that make no secret of the fact they're only there for a paycheck. In her love life, she keeps picking men intent on finding new ways to break her heart.
When she meets Cade Wallace, she knows he'd be more of the same. Devastatingly handsome? Check. An inflated ego? Double check. But their attraction is undeniable. Can she trust him with her heart or will he be another mistake?

Before You Go will be out February 7!

The second release is Stolen, the prequel to the His Dark Lessons series.

When Cassandra Woods sees Chance Crawford for the first time, she's immediately drawn to him. Tall, dark, and brooding, he's the artist type that usually gets her in trouble; guys who were more interested in getting to know her father, a Pulitzer Prize winning author.

But Chance could care less who her father is. He looks at Cassandra like she's the only thing that matters in the whole world. He steals her breath from her lungs. Her heart from her chest.

All-consuming, all-powerful love, is beautiful.
And terrifying.

You've read the His Dark Lessons series and know where they end up. It's time to find out how Cass and Chance met, fell in love...then fell apart.

Stolen will be released February 28!

A couple of FAQs:

Will there be more Leila and Jacob?

Yes! I plan on fast forwarding a year or two after the wedding. Haven't decided yet on whether the book will be serialized or not. Either way, it will be released Fall/Winter 2014.

Where can I find a release schedule?

Check out my upcoming projects tab. If something happens and a release date has to be pushed, I also post a blog, so feel free to follow me!

Happy New Year--can't wait to see what awesome things 2014 has in store!
