Welcome to Anna’s World once again. I’m pleased to be a part of Rebel Ink Press’s Earth Day Blog Hop this year, along with several other Rebel authors. Since it’s Earth Day, what better way to get your green on than to read an e-book? Since I became involved in the world of e-books this year, many people have asked why are my books e-books, what’s the big thing with e-readers etc… I’ll have to admit, I was a paperback/hardback reader myself, like a lot of my readers. Since discovering my kindle, though, I rarely pick up anything else. Amazingly, many of my family and friends bought Nooks and Kindles solely for the purpose of downloading MY books and have told me they love them and don’t know why they waited so long to make the purchase. I always tell people that are still hesitant to use the free kindle app, before purchasing one. and most of them find they love it. Of course, there will always be those who actually want the feel of a “book” in their hands when they read, and that’s fine, but think of all the paper being saved, and think of all the stories you can carry around with you on your e-reader when you travel. Think about how many “books” you’d have to carry in its place…now I’ll bet you never thought of that, did you?
I have a couple of suggestions for that Nook or Kindle of yours. Rebel Ink Press has released two of my romances so far this year with a few more coming later in the year. Let’s talk about the two already out. One or both of them may be just the kind of read you’re looking for. I write contemporary romance, a sweeter sexy read, not erotica. Don’t let that stop you, though, because I’ve had readers who only normally read paranormal, or DD, or mystery, or Sci-Fi, tell me they read one of my books as a favor to me or out of curiosity, or for something different. Guess what-yep-you guessed it…they were pleasantly surprised to find it was a refreshing change of pace for them. I’ve had erotica readers tell me they loved my stories, they’re sweet, sexy, romantic, hot, real old-fashioned romance. One reader said after reading Sunny’s Love, “Vanilla will never be the same.” So no matter what your normal style of reading may be, step out of the norm, go green, read an e-book with a little different flavor than what you’re used to. You might find you like it!
When Army Major Jessica Walsh meets local factory worker, Cody Jones, she finds herself staring straight into the eyes of the man who’s been haunting her dreams for the past few nights. Fresh from a breakup with her cheating ex, Jessica sets out to seduce the sexy brown-eyed man in the hopes of a brief rebound affair. Getting more than she bargained for, she falls in love with him, but has kept a secret about who she really is.
On the night she plans to tell him the truth, Cody plans to propose. But before either of those things can take place, they run into Jessica’s ex, who cruelly spills the beans. Angry and heartbroken, Cody ends the relationship, turning to a bottle for comfort. Jessica’s hurt, she accepts his decision. While they find they can’t stay away from each other, they can’t seem to work out their differences, either. Will the unlikely lovers be able to overcome the obstacles in their lives and find their happy ever after?
***Author Note: Yes, Jessica and Cody soon find out that half-truths and deceit are the quickest way to end a relationship, no matter how strong the attraction…follow their journey as they attempt to rebuild their lives after sweet, passionate love and devastating heartbreak. Will they do it apart…or together… or will they destroy each other in the process? Walks around the lake, enjoying the beautiful, green scenery, the trees, water, and mountains are a favorite with these two, by the way.

And my latest Rebel release and one that I’ve had a lot of readers tell me they absolutely LOVED…is…Sunny’s Love. I know if you’ve been following my blog, I’ve posted quite a few times about this book, but as more and more readers contact me personally and tell me how much they liked it, I feel others need to be given the opportunity to know a little about it…so I’ve posted a few excerpts…in last week’s post and one a few weeks before that. Feel free to check those out. Here’s the Blurb for SUNNY’S LOVE.
Sunny Drake has had a few bad years. First she lost her beloved father. Then her long time boyfriend married someone else. Now the doctor she works for is retiring. When Sunny meets widowed, restaurant mogul Chase Dupont, who is suddenly in need of a nanny, she agrees to take the job, never dreaming the journey it will lead her on.
To save his business from being taken over by another company, Chase asks Sunny to marry him. It will be a marriage of convenience but it will be for life. She agrees since she’s already in love with him. But can she make him love her, too?
When Sunny suffers a fall and lies unconscious for days, Chase realizes all he’s ever wanted is Sunny’s Love. But a mystery begins to unravel as they realize Sunny’s fall wasn’t an accident. Someone is trying to murder her. Will Sunny and Chase get the chance to admit their true feelings to each other? Or is it too late?
***Author Note: Sunny and Chase, ah…not your ordinary couple, but the heat between the two of them is undeniable. From walks on a sunny Florida beach to Sunny’s solitary walks in the woods behind their Des Moines home, they know how to enjoy the beauty of nature. Find out why readers of many other genres are loving this book. A little bit sweet, a little bit sexy, and a little bit of mystery thrown in.
