Today I sent out my newsletter, which included a list of my books coming between now and the end of the year. What I’d love to know from my readers is which one you’re MOST looking forward to.
The Barista’s Beloved is the fourth book in the River Hill series, and quite possibly my favorite so far. This slow-burn, small-town, friends-to-lovers romance features a #ladyboss whiskey maker who falls for a down-on-his luck lawyer moonlighting at her favorite coffee shop.
If you’re a fan of will-they-or-won’t-they love stories featuring heroes with more than a passing resemblance to a certain famous Chris (we’re talking about you, Captain America), and heroines who really can have it all, you’re going to adore THE BARISTA’S BELOVED.
And if you reserve your copy before May 30, you’ll save $1 off your order.

The Baker’s Beauty released on Wednesday, October 24, and Jamaila and I are so proud to introduce you to Sean Amory and Jessica Casillas-Moore. He’s a little bit broken after a tragic moment from his past (okay, a lot broken), while she’s struggling to carve out a future for herself amidst a changing career landscape and a loud, overbearing family.*
We hope you’ll download The Baker’s Beauty and that this story of love, loss, and redemption will warm your heart.
* While I usually write the heroes and Jamaila tackles the heroines, we flipped the script on this one. Given that Jess is half Mexican it made sense for me to take on her story as I grew up in a mixed family (my white father married a Mexican American woman and I lived with them from the time I was nine until I left home for college). A lot of what you see with Jess’s family is inspired by my own experiences with such a large, vocal brood.
Fun fact: I’d fully forgotten what a dustpan was called until I was telling my then-boyfriend-now-husband to bring me the palita and he had no idea what I was talking about. See also: flip-flops were chanclas and you did not want grandma to beat you with one, and when a girl wears short shorts and you can see her ass cheeks, said grandma would complain about her nalgas hanging out.
