Gallery Name The Baby Contest!

*********Contest Closed********

A big thank you to all who sent in names to help name Delaney and Quinn’s baby!

So many great ones! So good I might have to use them for the other Cates brothers’ babies. 😉

The winning baby names were submitted by Jill Brittain! Mackenzie if it’s a girl and Jameson if it’s a boy! Thanks, Jill! The baby’s name (and sex) will be revealed in the 5th #CatesBrother book, YOU CAN’T HURRY LOVE.

But there were so many great names that I decided to put everyone who submitted an entry into a drawing and drew 2 random runners up. Donna Killian and L.L. have also won e-copies of one of the Cates Brothers books.

Thanks to all who entered. And to to my publisher, Lyrical Press, Inc. for the help.

Name The Baby Contest! 

The answer to who is having a baby from my last newsletter is…Delaney and Quinn Cates! And I’d like your helping naming the baby! Readers will find out Delaney is pregnant in Love 2.0, but the plot is such that you won’t find out the sex of the baby until YOU CAN’T HURRY LOVE releases.

So, in order not to spoil that reveal, just go ahead and submit both a possible boy and girl name. The winner of the contest will get…

#1 Their winning baby’s name in YOU CAN’T HURRY LOVE.

#2 My everlasting gratitude, and trust me when I say, the whole Cates family will hold your name high that finally…finally…Delaney & Quinn can reveal their baby’s name and stop using “cutie pie” or “little baby Cates” as a placeholder. 😉

#3 *Winner also wins a signed copy of YOU CAN’T HURRY LOVE!*

The Details: This contest will run from now through the month of April. (Ends 5.1.17) I’ll pick the name I like the best. If there are too many good names to choose, I’ll put all the favorites into a hat and pick randomly.

Gallery Don’t You Just Love a Happy Ending?


Just posting a little inspiration as my touchstone as I write Henry Lee and Hawk’s story. Henry Lee and Hawk just might get their happily ever after this Christmas with a little Christmas magic. Not a Christmas song, but this sounds like it could be Hawk’s theme for this novella. It may have taken him seven years for his heart to heal and arrive at this place, or maybe it just took the right woman to re-enter his life…

Gallery Wrapping up LOVE 2.0

LOVE 2.0 releases April 18, 2017

It’s finally Kaz’s turn. Meet his heroine…

Mirabel Díaz had heard the expression hide in plain sight, but she was relatively sure walking down Main Street of some small town that time forgot, dressed as Elvis, the Las Vegas years, wasn’t quite plain enough. Her white bell-bottom, rhinestone-studded pantsuit was turning heads.

Of course, the fact that her boss Monty had given her a pantsuit two sizes too small didn’t help. She wanted to kiss the inventor of polyester because if she hadn’t been able to squeeze her curves into the Elvis pantsuit, she’d be Madonna right now. And not like-a-virgin Madonna either. No, she’d be Blonde-Ambition Madonna strutting down the sidewalk in fishnet tights and a cone bra.
