I have a new book out today and holyfreakingcrap you guys, it's only 99-cents!

If you'd told me five years ago I'd write a military-themed romantic comedy that included a pair of infant twins, my childless-by-choice, non-militarily inclined brain would have short-circuited and I would have laughed 'til I fell on the floor.

Go here to nab it for just 99-cents!
If you'd told me that same book would generate the most positive pre-release buzz of any book I'd written to date, I would have piddled myself while I was down there on the floor. Then I would have tried to cover it up by pretending I rolled in spilled wine and you wouldn't have believed me because hello, of course I'd never be careless enough to spill wine, and then we would have forgotten what we were talking about entirely.

Which is the fact that HOLY CRAP, YOU GUYS, I HAVE A NEW BOOK OUT TODAY!

I know, I know...I haven't told you much about this one because my publisher asked me to avoid doing any promo until release day, which, in case I haven't made it clear OHMYGOD, TODAY IS RELEASE DAY!

The book is called Marine for Hire, and here's what it's about:

She thought she’d sworn off military men for good…
Sam Kercher is every inch a wickedly hot Marine. Tall. Sexy. Lethal. When his best friends call in a favor, Sam is forced to face an entirely new line of duty—playing nanny for their newly divorced sister and her squirming seven-month-old twin boys. If Sam can dissemble an M16 in his sleep, diaper duty should be a cakewalk…right?
Unfortunately, Operation Nanny isn’t quite that simple. Sheridan has sworn off overbearing military men, so Sam must protect her from her dirtbag ex without revealing just how much he has in common with her brothers. Or that he’s been ordered not to touch her. Ever. Problem is, Sheri’s one hell of a gorgeous woman, capable of making this hard-bodied Marine even harder. And Sam wants her bad.
Protect the girl. Care for the babies. Hide his identity. And keep his hands off. But even the most disciplined Marine has weaknesses...and Sheridan is one Sam might not be able to resist.

Wanna know the best part?

Well, the best part for me is that the book has been racking up all kinds of crazy-awesome reviews, particularly from readers who've never heard of me before because they weren't out there browsing for romantic comedy. But see, my publisher kinda tricked them with this one by not marketing it as comedy at all, but rather as a steamy military-themed romance (which it totally is) so readers are all, "hey, I like books with Marines and a few good rounds of bury-the-one-eyed-worm," and then they get into it and they're all, "woah, wait – this book can also make me snort wine out my nose?"

Which is totally my thing, right?

But back to what I was saying about the best part for you. See, my publisher made a strategic decision last week to offer Marine for Hire at an obscenely low price of just 99-cents for a very limited time starting on release day (did I mention that's TODAY?!!)

To nab the book for less than a buck, go here.

And  if you've managed to get your hands on one of the advance reading copies my publisher circulated these last few weeks, please, pretty please with red wine and salted caramel on top, stop by Amazon or Barnes & Noble or Goodreads and leave me a review.

In the meantime, how about we all roll around on the ground together in celebration? I'll bring the wine.

Oh wow. I would not have thought of you for a book with a Marine and babies. I'm ordering it right away and can't wait to read it!

I just read this in a day! A DAY! I love all your books but the mommy humor and sexy Marine did me in. PLEASE tell me you're following up on Kelli and Mac? Right? That's what those hints were for?

Also, thank you for writing about someone who has no clue about how to be a mom. I have a two year and I'm still surprised that they let me keep him. There's a lot of pressure to be the Perfect Mom--organic baby food you cook yourself, cloth diapers, educational time scheduled--that it gets overwhelming at times. Thanks for making Moms sexy. ;)

Skye, Thank you! I hope you like it!

Elizabeth, you read the hints correctly -- Mac and Kelli's story is next (and currently about 3/4 complete). I'm so glad the mommy stuff resonated with you. That storyline certainly stemmed from my own insecurities about being a new stepmom :)
