REUNITED: Cover reveal & giveaway!

So I’m too excited to drag this out! Here is the cover of my soon-to-be-released book with Decadent Publishing:


Es muy bonita! Special thanks and many besos to Valerie Tibbs for the design!

Now, would you like to know what “Reunited” is all about? Here’s the blurb:

What would you do if you had the chance to sleep with your unrequited high school crush?

If you’re former geek Magdelena Cruz, you’d do him in a heartbeat. But you’d lie about your true identity first and hope your new sexy persona is enough to create a night you’ll never forget with the one man you’ve always wanted. Meanwhile, Will Hudson is a workaholic assistant district attorney who doesn’t have time for a love life. He signed up for Madame Evangeline’s 1Night Stand experience expecting to scratch an itch with a willing stranger. He has no idea that his date is no stranger at all.

A reunion between these two classmates will be hotter than the scorching Las Vegas sun. But will the heat be enough to spark something deeper or will they both end up getting burned by Magdelena’s charade?

I hope you will love this book as much as I do! If you’ve ever dreamt about running into your high school crush and having him or her finally notice you, then you will definitely relate to Magdelena.

Plus, I think it really enforces the message that smart IS sexy. There’s even a word for it now – SMEXY. This has been a long time coming and pop culture -- as always -- is influencing society's acceptance.

Back when I was in high school, "nerd" was synonmous with ugly, awkward or weird. Then the movie "Revenge of the Nerds" came out and, for a brief period at least, geeks were a little cool. Just a little.

But then the 90s hit and "cool" went right back to being the kind of people who looked like the actors on "Beverly Hills 90210" and "Melrose Place." Now thanks to recent TV shows like “Chuck” and “The Big Bang Theory” or even the movie “She’s Out Of My League,” nerds have become HOT!

Are you hooked yet? I hope so. But you’ll have to wait a little longer for REUNITED. A release date is tentatively scheduled for November.

How about an awesome giveaway to tide you over until then? I thought so.

I’ve been thinking about different ways to promote REUNITED and, of course, there has to be some kind of swag involved, right? And besides the book name or book cover, I’d like to have a tagline to go on this fabulous swag. I’ve narrowed it down to two possibilities:

 “Bringing Smexy Back” or “Talk Nerdy To Me”


Which one do you like? Vote below in the comments and I’ll pick one random winner to be the first to receive one swag item with the tagline. This will be an “I owe you” since I won’t receive the prizes until late September or early October.

Well, there you go! Your first sneak peek at REUNITED. Stay tuned for more giveaways and updates on when you can buy your copy. In the meantime, check out other 1Night Stand books at www.decadentpublishing.com.

    1. LOL Krista. Yep, sometimes the beautiful people in high school aren't so beautiful once they hit their 30s and 40s!

      I'll keep my hubby too, but that doesn't mean I won't sometimes dream about Will. Ha!

    1. Thanks Zee! I do love "Bringing Smexy Back", but I also think "Talk Nerdy To Me" is great too. That's why I can't decide.

  10. Wow! That cover is beautiful! and the blurb has me so impatient to read that book! I can hardly wait! Anyway to answer your question about the tagline... 3 words taglines are a win! They just sound so catchy so am going with 'Bringing Smexy Back!' You definitely won't go wrong with that one.
