FoX Friday with Brenda Margriet!

Hello, my lovelies! Please help me welcome Brenda Margriet back to FoX Friday. She’s here with her brand new release, No Life But This.

I’ve been waiting for Brenda to share this book with the rest of the world. It’s such a lovely story. So refreshing, and set in one of my favourite places on earth.

Abigail Garsson feels trapped in her safe, boring, conventional life. Desperate to escape, she signs up for an adventure vacation on the Portuguese island of São Miguel.

Santos Carregado enjoys introducing tourists to his tiny island in the middle of the Atlantic. At first he barely notices the unassuming Abigail. He soon finds her meek exterior hides a vibrant woman who teases his senses and ignites his passion.

Abigail is stunned to discover the handsome, confident Santos is attracted to her, but his fiery kisses and searing caresses convince her to accept a sensuous invitation.

Will the realities of life shatter Abigail’s holiday daydream? Or can the shifting sands of a short-term fling become the rock on which a life-long relationship is built?

Brenda was sweet enough to bring us an excerpt! Read on…

FoX Friday with debut author, Wendy Goldberry!

Hey, my lovelies! It’s Friday, the 13th, and for you that’s a very lucky thing. Today we have another debut author, Wendy Goldberry. Wendy is part of my local writing group in Philadelphia, so I’m super excited for her very first release, For I Have Sinned. (Love that title!)

Before we get to the book, which is sizzling hot, I asked Wendy a few questions.

How long have you been writing?

I wrote my first poem when I was eight years old and haven’t looked back. I’ve gone through the bad teenage poetry phase, the awkward and pretentious college literary magazine period, and now I’m a published author. Writing is my addiction. If I’m not doing it, I’m thinking about it. [Read More…]

FoX Friday: Bring it on, 2017!

Hello my lovelies!

As 2016 comes to a close, I think we can all agree that it’s been one of the more challenging years in recent memory. We lost so many influential people, including so many that influenced me personally, that it often seemed like the universe was playing a cruel joke. The beauty is that they left behind legacies and works of art that will continue to inspire generations to come.

As for me, I intend to make 2017 the year of love. What better way to do that than with lots of romance. Right?

Coming January 27th, the long-awaited follow-up to The Calum. Lovie and Duff are navigating the tricky waves of a long-distance relationship in Calum Me Maybe. And, let me tell you, those waters are choppy as hell. LOL!

Also coming this winter is Crossing Paths, a collaboration between myself and my dear friend Kim Golden. And I might have a little surprise for you around Valentine’s Day, so stay tuned for that. [Read More…]

FoX Friday with Sarah Hegger and a Big Giveaway!

It’s the FoX Friday before Christmas and, all through Xio’s house, the Kindles are charged and quiet as a mouse.

And that’s about as much butchering of that classic poem as I am going to do, lol.

Today, my sweet friend (and the Other Half of My Brain) Sarah Hegger is back with the fourth installment in her Sir Arthur’s Legacy series. If you haven’t checked out the first three books, do it now.

In addition to bringing us the FIRST THREE CHAPTERS (!) from the book, Sarah also has a big giveaway going on! The Roger’s Bride Blog Tour giveaway “Curl Up with a Book” Grand Prize includes: a mermaid blanket, sweater mug full of treats, copies of all four Sir Arthur’s Legacy books, dragon bookmark, tote bag and more!

Before we get to that, let’s take a look at the Roger’s Bride.

FoX Friday with Kim Golden + a giveaway!

Happy Friday, my lovelies! We’re closing in on the winter holidays, and I can think of no better present than a new release from my good friend Kim Golden.

If you’ve been with me since the beginning (way back in 2013), you know what a soppy fangirl I am of Kim’s writing. Even though I’ve known her, more or less, since we were kids, I only became aware of her writing when I started on my own publishing journey. Maybe Baby is one of my top twenty, all-time favourite books. Kim is here with the third installment in the series, Maybe Tomorrow. If I tell you how excited I am, you’ll think I’m bullshitting you, but I bullshit you not. I’ve been waiting, y’all! So excited, that I’ll pick a random winner to receive a copy of the first book in the triolgy from the comments below.


Before we dive into Henrik and Eddy’s story, I want to reintroduce you to Kim. I asked her some fun questions, and her answers don’t disappoint! [Read More…]
