Your final trinket…another teaser graphic!

Thank you for playing along with the five day countdown! It’s been a blast! And don’t forget to check out the book! Happy reading!

From champagne to salt water…

Kylie:
Walking into my employee housing unit at Destiny Dunes resort for the first time, the last thing I expect to see is a hot guy…and definitely not a dripping wet naked one.
Turns out the unit was double-booked. With only twenty bucks to my name and no credit cards, I’m screwed.
But with Brett, Florida’s biggest playboy, offering me his bed for the weekend, I may not have to go crawling back to my two-timing ex or my controlling dad. My real challenge will be not letting this hunk who helps kids for a living steal my heart.

Brett:
Of all the housing units she could have walked into…
I don’t have the time or capacity to deal with this damsel in distress. Between helping my mom take care of my grandma and keeping an eye on my brother, all I’ve got time for are quick, emotionless hookups.
So why am I letting this woman pull me in?
I’ve been down that road before and it bit me in the ass. I’ve got to stay strong…make sure she understands my heart is off limits, otherwise, this thing between us is certain to detonate.

Welcome to Destiny Dunes, where the only thing hotter than the Florida sun is the romance between this resort’s employees. Each book in this steamy series focuses on your favorite romance tropes. Once you enter the gates of Destiny Dunes, you’ll never want to leave!

5-4-3-2-1 Countdown to DOWN FOR HER! (2 days till release!)

Just two more days until DOWN FOR HER will be released into the wild! 

Today’s feature — three truths and a lie about Kylie and Brett.

Kylie:
I’m an excellent snow skier.
I like taking care of people.
I’ve never held a real job.
I won’t fall for a player.

Brett:
I love old cars.
I’ve got a snake tattoo on my inner thigh.
I’m a mama’s boy.
I won’t let things get serious with Kylie.

Which one is the lie? You’ve got to read the book to find out!

About the book…

From champagne to salt water…

Walking into her new employee housing unit at Destiny Dunes resort, the last thing Kylie McBride expects to see is a dripping wet naked guy. Turns out the unit was double-booked. All Kylie wants is to take her glorious new job as pool girl and prove to herself that she doesn’t need to go crawling back to her two-timing ex or her controlling dad. But with only twenty bucks to her name, no credit cards, and no place to live, she’s as good as fish bait. With the hunky, now-clothed Brett offering his bed for the weekend, she might have a reprieve. She just needs to keep the resort’s biggest player out of her heart.

Occupational Therapist Brett Hargrove may spend his days working with kids, but his nights and weekends are dedicated to charming the ladies…and to helping his mom care for his sick grandmother. The last thing he’s looking for is a relationship, until a housing mix-up has the captivating Kylie standing in his living room with her suitcases. His life is not set up for a girlfriend—that’s bitten him in the ass before. He’s got to stay strong and make sure Kylie understands his heart is off limits. Otherwise, this thing between them is certain to detonate.

About Down for Her…

From champagne to salt water…

Kylie McBride leaves her two-timing ex-fiancé along with a life of luxury for independence and a little self-respect…well, if you can call a job as pool girl respectful. The resort offers employee residence, which she desperately needs. But a housing screw-up has her thrown together with the hunky but helpful Brett. She just needs to keep the Florida panhandle’s biggest player out of her heart.

5-4-3-2-1 Countdown to DOWN FOR HER! (4 days till release!)

Welcome to the second day of the five-day countdown to the release of DOWN FOR HER on Tuesday, March 23rd!

Today’s feature…the first chapter! Here’s your first taste of life at Destiny Dunes Resort, where the employees work hard and play way harder.

 

Chapter One

As I open the car door to step into my new life, a wall of heat thrusts itself onto me. I could hold out a cup in this dense Florida humidity for a few minutes and have a full glass of liquid. But the weather is the least complicated obstacle I have to overcome.

As I shoulder the bag that has ridden shotgun beside me since I left Oklahoma yesterday, a guy among some twentysomethings on the porch of the identical housing unit beside the one I’ve been assigned gives a catcall. “Hey, blondie, screw them, come see us. We’ve got beer.”

I wonder what he means by them? I only have one roommate. Val is her name, according to the girl who checked me in at the Destiny Dunes housing office.

As I slip in the key card and step into my new home, the distinct smell of burnt rice assaults my nostrils and turns my grin into a grimace. At least three days’ worth of dirty plates with caked-on goo litter the glass coffee table, and long tube socks drape across the faux-leather recliner. Dang, Val. I’m not the biggest clean freak on the planet, but even I have standards.

Those socks are humongous. A pair of super-sized sneakers topples over one another beside the recliner. Either she’s got really big feet or her boyfriend is here. I hope he’s not an asshole. That’s my cynicism talking. But I have a right to be cynical about men right now.

Val must be home, because I hear the shower running. I start to walk into the kitchen, but something scurrying sends me stumbling backward. Even though I have a total of twenty-four dollars and sixty-four cents to my name, I’ll most definitely be investing a portion of that into some sort of humane mousetrap.

I hear the shower turn off. “Dammit, Val,” comes a guy’s Southern drawl. “If you take my towel one more time, I’m gonna whip your ass.”

I stiffen. If this is Val’s boyfriend, I need to have a talk with her, because he’s an ass.

“I don’t suppose you’ve done any laundry either?” says the guy. Steps sound down the hallway, and then I hear what sounds like the opening of a dryer door. “Empty, of course.” The dryer door closes, and then footsteps come my way. “You were here all damn day and you couldn’t have—” The guy freezes in place as he catches sight of me.

Water drips down a six-pack of abs before my eyes. Words and phrases swirl around my brain, but my tongue doesn’t seem to be working. I try desperately not to look farther south, but it’s like being told not to scratch an itch.

He smooths his wet hair back, the muscles in his forearms and biceps colliding. “Can I help you?”

I look down, because boy, could he.

Bad Kylie. We will be having none of that. I am here to take my glorious job as pool girl and figure out my life. The last thing I need right now is another man. “You could start by putting on some clothes, please.”

He gives me a lopsided grin that takes him from everyday hunk to full-on swoony heartbreaker. “No one’s forcing you to look.” He heads toward the kitchen, giving me a blessed view of two very scrumptious ass cheeks. “If you’re looking for Val, he’s in his bedroom.”

His bedroom? Housing roomed me with a guy? I’m as progressive as the next person, but this seems a bit assuming. I hear the sound of kitchen drawers opening and closing. “Dammit. Are you serious?”

Stepping toward the kitchen, I peek in to find him rubbing a kitchen washcloth over his head and then across his shoulder and down his arm. I jog myself awake from my trance. “And who are you?”

“I’m Brett.”

I look away, feeling busted for staring. “You’re a friend of Val’s?”

“Not at the moment. Ask me later, when I’m dry and this air-conditioning isn’t blowing on my wet ass.”

I rub my temple. “Okay, listen, I don’t mean to be a bitch or anything, but we’re going to have to lay down some ground rules.”

He stops drying his chest and gives me the side-eye. “Ground rules?”

“I’m not sure why Housing has placed me with a man. I’m a forward thinker, so I will learn to get used to that if I must. But what I don’t have to get used to is naked men walking around my home—at least ones who don’t live here.”

He narrows his gaze at me. “Who are you?”

I put my hands on my hips. “I am Val’s new roommate.” I lift my eyebrows in expectation of an apology.

He rests his naked ass against the counter, covering his junk with the washrag. “Who told you that you were Val’s new roommate?”

“Lauren in Housing,” I say, as if everyone should know who Lauren in Housing is.

“All right. I don’t know what the hell’s going on, but let me get some clothes on and we’ll go down to Housing and get this straightened out.”

He moves past me and heads down the hallway. I follow him, trying to keep my gaze from his ass, but damn. “I’m sorry, what needs to be straightened out?”

He raps on a bedroom door. “Val,” he says, and then opens it to find it empty. “Son of a bitch. He must have gone on down to the beach, which is why he took my damn towel.” He goes into a bedroom and opens a dresser drawer, pulling out a pair of boxer briefs like he lives here or something. “They’ve assigned you to a housing unit that already has two people assigned to it.”

I shift my weight from one leg to another, my mind searching everywhere for a nugget of knowledge that would help this make sense. “What?”

He opens his arms wide, the muscles in his biceps bulging. “This is my room. I’m Val’s roommate.”

I glance down the hallway at the number of doors, knowing the answer to my next question before I ask it. “Are there three bedrooms?”

“Nope,” he says, pulling a pair of shorts up his legs.

I take a deep breath. “I’ll just go back down to Housing and let them know they gave me the wrong key card or the wrong unit number or whatever.”

“Did they give you unit number 1624?”

I nod.

“Did you use that key card to get into this unit?”

I nod again.

“Then it looks like somebody down there messed up.”

“But Lauren told me that my roommate’s name was Val.”

He pulls a T-shirt over his head. “Therein lies the problem. When did you interview for your job here?”

“Last week.” I cross my arms over my chest, lifting my chin. “Why?”

He sits on the bed, putting on his shoes. “Didn’t you need to give a two-week notice at your current job?”

I shuffle my feet, looking down at them. “No, I didn’t.”

“What job did you take here?”

Frustration mounts in my chest. “Shouldn’t we be getting down to Housing?”

He grabs a phone off the dresser and peers at it. “Shit.”

“What?”

“It’s after five. I hope they’re not closed.”

“Maybe someone’s still there,” I say, but in my heart, I know it’s not true. Lauren was the only one in sight when I was there a few minutes ago, and she said she was going to be out of there as soon as she was done with me.

He picks up his keys. “Let’s hope so. If not, you might need to find somewhere else to stay tonight.”

“I don’t have anywhere else to stay tonight,” I say, the volume in my tone rising.

“What about a friend or something?”

I rub my temple, my chest tightening. “You’re the only person I know here.”

He lowers his chin, his hazel eyes bearing into mine. “You don’t know me.”

“Exactly.”

“Come on. Let’s just go and see if anyone’s there.”

I follow him down the hallway, my heart on pins and needles, because unless I can find a hotel room for about ten dollars, I’m completely sunk.

Reviews are in for COURTING CARLYN!

5 stars: “I‘m totally in love with Courting Carlyn and I’m not even a tennis fan. It is no secret that I’m a fan of Melissa Chambers. Her books are addictive! I think Courting Carlyn is my new favourite. Vaughn Yarborough is swoon-worthy material and the romance had me hooked. This book is great. It has everything I look for; two misunderstood characters, romance and a great storyline.” – Danielle, Chapters Through Life

5 stars: “I absolutely adored Courting Carlyn. … I really liked that the romance wasn’t instant love. The build up was just right and it had all of the ingredients for a sweet summer contemporary romance book.” – Colleen, Colleen’s Conclusions

5 stars: “The honesty behind their stories, behind the whole story will make people love it as much as I did. Them being so relatable to us, will encourage and motivate YA readers, teenagers to not give up and go for their dreams.” – Edit~A, Let’s Talk About Books

5 stars: “Courting Carlyn is a first class swooning material. … I really enjoyed the book and I highly recommend it to anyone who fancies YA books about love, sports and interesting characters.” – Sabrina, I Speak Bookish

Vaughn Yarborough is ready to trade the fame and glory of the international junior pro tennis circuit for college and a more settled life. First stop: spearhead a summer camp for underprivileged kids. The girl who’s agreed to run it with him has Vaughn more intrigued by the minute, but with the strict no-fraternizing rules, he’s got to figure out how not to fall for her.

When the boy Carlyn Sadowski has crushed on for years asks her to work with him for the summer, she has to pinch herself. When his world-famed coach offers her training for free, she can’t believe her luck. He could actually help her follow in her mother’s footsteps by playing college tennis. But when she finds out the catch is she’s got to convince Vaughn to go pro, Carlyn will have to decide between her dreams and the boy currently stealing her heart.

DREAMER Deleted Scene

In this deleted scene from DREAMER, Jessa discovers that the alternate realities she normally visits are suddenly colliding and splintering all around her as a simple trip through the mirror to grab a slice of pizza turns into a nightmare . . .

My craving for great pizza sends me through the bathroom mirror to Greaverville, the name of Ardenville in this reality. My hand is pressed to the reflective chrome on the side of the shake machine, and one glance down at my apron and nametag tells me I’m working right now. I make a frustrated face. Great. I get to smell and see and serve pizza, but I won’t get to eat any until my break.

My misery is interrupted by the front door slamming open so hard it nearly shatters the glass. A half-dozen soldiers with guns at the ready head straight for my counter as I stare at them wide-eyed and open-mouthed. The memory surfaces, but slowly. Like it happened a very, very long time ago and I can only remember bits and pieces. Something about a war? And we’re…occupied?

That doesn’t seem right. None of that fits with the Greaverville I thought I knew in this reality. What changed? And when?

“We want three cheese pizzas and four pasta specials,” the sergeant says as his eyes scan the menu board behind me. I start ringing it up, but the barrel of the gun slides slowly over the top of the register.

“That’s no charge,” the soldier says.

“What?” I can’t even look at him. My eyes are on the gun.

“Don’t ring it up,” he says, over-enunciating each word like he’s talking to a three year old. My eyes finally snap up to meet his because he’s managed to irritate me.

“I have to ring it up,” I say sarcastically. “It’s my job.”

“Hey!” One of the other soldiers pushes forward. “You giving us trouble?”

“No!” I hear my boss shouting as he comes up behind me.

“Pete, they think they’re getting the meal on the house,” I tell him. Pete looks at me in alarm and suddenly, he’s pushing me behind him.

“Of course it is!” His voice is too high-pitched, and he’s so ridiculously friendly I almost laugh. Pete is cranky even on his best day.

“You’re going to let these bozos just -”

He puts his hand over my mouth. “Sorry about that,” Pete says to the sergeant. “She’s new. And if she keeps it up, she’s going to be unemployed.” He puts enough emphasis on that last word that I finally get the message. I give him a nod, and he slowly takes his hand away.

“Go ahead and take their order,” he jerks a thumb toward his own chest. “I’ll deliver it myself.”

“No.” The sergeant glances at me, and a smile touches his lips but doesn’t quite make it to his eyes. “She’ll wait on us. For as long as we need her to.”

“My shift is almost over,” I protest.

“It’s over when we’re ready to leave,” he says. His eyes slide over to Pete. “Isn’t that right, boss?”

Pete nods, and I realize I’m outnumbered. I need to get back, and I really shouldn’t be making this kind of trouble for my counterpart. This is what happens when you Travel without a plan.

“If you follow me, I’ll get you seated,” I say through gritted teeth as I grab a rag. I want to tell them off, but those guns aren’t toys. Something tells me they’re not done showing me who’s in charge, either.

“We’ll take those booths in the corner,” the lead soldier says, pointing. I follow the line of his finger and there’s a family seated in one of the booths. I take a deep breath and start over; glad to see the family is already scrambling to clear out. I wipe the table down and step back to get out of their way but I’m stopped as the sergeant grabs my arm.

“That’s better,” he says. “You just remember what you are. Got it?”

I can’t help it; the words are out before I can stop them. “What am I?”

He slides the barrel of the gun up under my chin and I can’t breathe. Stupid, stupid sarcastic mouth!

“Nothing.” He says it softly, but that somehow makes it even more menacing. “You’re nothing to me. That makes you expendable. Got it?”

I nod because I can’t speak. My mouth is suddenly dry and my throat is paralyzed.

“Now go fetch a couple of pitchers of beer. And we want our food on the table within the next five minutes. Understand?”

I nod again, and he lowers the gun so he can slide into the booth. I back away, and then I turn and walk as fast as I can into the kitchen, where I lean against one of the counters. Everyone’s bustling and I can hear Pete yelling at the cooks.

I grab a pizza pan from the dish rack and flip it over, staring at myself in the reflection. I put my fingertips to the surface, and I experience a brief, panicked moment when I realize I’m not going through–probably because of how badly my hand is shaking.

I focus again and my reflection and she and I have the same troubled look on our faces.

“What the hell is going on?” I ask.

About DREAMER

This thrilling sequel to TRAVELER doles out adventure and heartbreak in equal measure as it takes readers through a kaleidoscope of intricately crafted worlds of wonder, discovery, and danger.

You’re still you no matter where you go . . . Jessa has learned the hard way that traveling to alternate dimensions isn’t all delicious, glittering desserts and fancy parties: it also means accidentally running into people she thought she’d never see again. Still mourning a devastating loss, Jessa isn’t really prepared for the arrival of a reckless version of someone she once loved who is now bent on revenge. Add an increasingly complicated relationship with her best friend Ben, the reappearance of an old enemy, and the threat of the multiverse collapsing, and Jessa’s got a lot on her plate. She may be destined to help save an infinite multitude of worlds . . . but in the end, all Jessa really wants to do is save the people she loves.
