We’re up against Anticipation by my lovely friend Sarah Mayberry. Anticipation was one of my favorite books of last year, and it’s tough to compete with a Brazilian tattoo artist, but I think a sexy rugby player can do it, don’t you?

Taming the Legend by Kat LathamDABWAHA is now open! In this first round, Taming the Legend is up against Sleeping with Her Enemy by Jenny Holiday (which I’m reading now and it’s fantastic and you should totally read it, but does it have a sexy rugby player who tries to win a tournament to help the woman he lost his virginity to? SADLY NOT.)

A new baby and a new giveaway*!

*Not the baby

Happy Monday, everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t been around much the past month. Here’s my excuse:

Baby at six weeks

Meet Baby Lilah! She arrived in the wee hours of the morning on February 2, and she’s filled our hearts with joy ever since. We’re all so in love! Seriously, how can I be expected to do anything but stare into that cheeky little face all day?

I’ve been trying not to work much, but last week I got some fantastic news. Taming the Legend has been nominated for the 2016 DABWAHA award! This is the second year in a row one of my books has been nominated (Unwrapping Her Perfect Match was included last year), and I’m beyond thrilled.

Never heard of DABWAHA? It’s a competition run by Dear Author and Smart Bitches Trashy Books to find out readers’ favorite books of the previous year. Here’s their explanation:

The DABWAHA is our annual NCAA-style tournament of books. 64 books are selected in 8 different categories, and readers pick brackets of which books they think will win each round.

The winners of each round are determined by public voting, so it helps your cause to promote the books you want to win each round.

You can see the full list of DABWAHA nominees here.

Of course, I really want you to vote for Taming the Legend (voting starts Thursday!). But I’m also doing a giveaway of my own to celebrate being included in DABWAHA. You could win Taming the Legend and your choice of five other ebooks from the list of nominees! Seriously, you guys, there are some AMAZING books there. Hurry and enter now for your chance to win… and don’t forget to vote for Taming the Legend!

Announcing the winner of my Valentine’s giveaway!

Hello hello! For those of you keeping track of Baby Watch 2016, she is now one week overdue. I’ve tried most of the old-fashioned ways of encouraging her to get going. I’ve been walking all over town, and I don’t think my stomach can handle many more jalapenos or curry. I’m starting to think this child will graduate from high school in 18 years and I’ll have to be wheeled down the aisle to collect her diploma because the kid will STILL BE IN MY BELLY.

Anyway, I do have some good news. My Valentine’s giveaway ended today, and someone is going to be very excited to get a prize pack with luxurious bath products, chocolates and my book One Night with Her Bachelor. And that person is… Clare Roden!

Congrats, Clare!

Thank you to everyone who entered! I’ll announce another giveaway later this month. Hopefully the next time you hear from me it’ll be to announce my new daughter’s birth. Either that, or you might hear a news story about me exploding, like that python that tried to swallow an alligator in Florida.
