An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

After the incident that caused Liv Morozov to drop out of college, years later she’s still trying to pick up the pieces of her life. She’s managed to carve out a career for herself as a photographer, but when it comes to guys? Her issues send them running for the hills, every damn time.

Zane Parata has declared himself off-limits for relationships. Between trying to maintain sobriety and the long hours he works as a chef, no one wants to deal with his brand of damage, and he wouldn’t want to burden them in the first place.

When Liv shows up at Cupid’s Café, she never expected to find Zane, her brother’s former best friend who had vanished one day and never returned. The sparks that surged when they were both teens rekindle stronger than ever, and all too fast, Liv and Zane entangle in each other’s lives, breaking their own rules. Except with both struggling with the demons from their past, the love that’s begun to grow is one lapse away from shattering the two of them beyond repair.

Weekly Word Count #124

Word Count: 13,027

What story I’m currently working on: Though I’m a wee bit behind, I’m still working as much as possible on this YA fantasy novel with high hopes of finishing it by the end of the month. I just hit 64k, which puts me at close to just 20k left to write in this…at least I hope, ha! In a shocking turn of events though, I have the rest of it plotted out, so at least the pathway is clear!

What I’m editing/marketing: Captured Memories is out!!!! Now I’ve got some time before my next releases, Of Tinkers and Technomancers and A Reflection of Ice! I’ve been in hardcore writing mode, so the editing has been excruciatingly slow, but I’m hoping to get Forged Decisions done by the end of November regardless. #goals. Besides, once that’s shipped off to Loose Id, I can begin writing Forged Contracts!

Teaser of the week:

_Her lips against his, the sun soaking into their skin, and the sweet, fragrant breezes that wafted through this isolated picnic area were nothing short of perfection._

Line of the week:

Instead, she’d curled up in the plush bed, pushed away the silken sheets, and clutched her knees to her chest, staring at the mottled slate walls. Her chest ached with a dull throb that wouldn’t leave, like a broken bone still trying to heal after far too long. Fiona was out there somewhere, waiting for her to show up, yet she never would. Her heart might’ve hurt at the thought before, but in the wake of what she’d seen in the chapel, Katerina had forgotten how to feel.

Captured Memories Excerpt!

Release day is two days away, but you can pre-order your copy now!!

_Her lips against his, the sun soaking into their skin, and the sweet, fragrant breezes that wafted through this isolated picnic area were nothing short of perfection._

This was a terrible plan.

Liv applied cherry red lipstick in her rearview mirror with the precision of experience, her brand of war paint to give her confidence today. By some miracle, a hangover hadn’t chased her into Tuesday, after the amount of whisky they swilled last night. She had needed all the liquid courage possible following her miserable date with Kyle-the-douche and the way the thought of today sent her into freak-out mode.

Still, she smoothed the surface of her navy blue cigarette pants and took a deep inhale. Her Converse might not be as stylish as a pair of pumps, but if she needed to move fast, she’d be able to bolt at a moment’s notice. She might feel safe sitting behind the wheel of her Subaru, but the idea of walking down Bardstown towards this café made her heart step in double time.

She tugged her black leather jacket from the back seat, more a security blanket than any sort of needed warmth since the temperature would climb with the hours. Liv refused to go anywhere without it even though the jacket had accumulated more patches and holes than was worth keeping. Ten years later, and she had never been able to let him go—not completely. He and this jacket remained in her memories as a reminder of a better time, before college had happened and she turned into this jaded mess.

Liv got out of the car.
