I hope everyone enjoyed the Holidays! 

It seems like only yesterday that Wickedly They Dream was released and now I have my next book, Don't Forget to Breathe being released on February 7, 2015. Truthfully, I'm not a fast writer. This ms had been in the working stages for over a year.

I'm excited with my new publisher Crushing Hearts and Blackbutterfly. They have a wonderful support system in place and I'm looking forward to this release. 

Don't Forget to Breathe is a YA/Contemporary/Haunting Murder Mystery. It's my first attempt at this type of genre and I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm a bit nervous to have it exposed. And if you've read my posts in the past, I'm not the best at self-promoting. 

Needless to say, I will have a cover reveal for Don't Forget to Breathe on January 26th. Again, I'm asking if anyone would be interested in spreading the news, please let me know.

Without further ado, I bring you my Review Partner and Awesome Author:

The last thing
she expects is to fall in love with a prison guard…

Secret Service Agent, Sarita Cerez is thrown into a medium security prison—for
Her job is to protect the daughter
of the president of South Korea. She never envisioned making friends with
illegal immigrants or falling head over heels for one of the guards. Now the
clandestine activity, which is integral to protecting her charge, may destroy
her only chance at love.

He's never fraternized with the inmates—until he met her…

Matthew Carter always plays by the
rules, which includes maintaining a strictly professional relationship with the
inmates in his charge. But when Sarita saunters onto the unit, all bets are
off. Her status as a deportee with a permanent ticket to Columbia means they
can never be together, but try as he might, this doesn’t stop him from risking
his career for her.

He's a man who values honesty above
all else, and she lies for a living. Can two people from such different worlds
find any common ground?

As they walked down the first flight of stairs, Sarita’s
breath caught when she glanced at him. She missed her footing and would have
gone head-over-ass down the steps if he hadn’t grabbed her.

The heat emanating from Matt’s body seeped into
her. “Thanks. You saved me from a nasty fall.”

“You are so beautiful, Sarita.” His whispered words
feathered over her cheek.

She moved forward as his lips came down on hers in
a crushing kiss. The impact brought tears to her eyes and a whimper to her
throat. He eased the pressure. She took the light pecks as his apology.

She desired his passion over such teasing
gentleness. Her hand moved to the back of his head and held him against her
mouth, opening for him as his tongue thrust in. She hung onto him for fear of
tumbling down the stairs.

Swinging her around, he lifted her onto the
railing, wrapping her legs around him. His hardness met the juncture of her
thighs. The need to feel more of him suffused her. She rocked her hips and
squeezed him closer when he moaned.

The sound of whistling broke through the haze. She
eased her feet to the steps and they continued down the stairs as if she hadn’t
been about to rip off his shirt.

She held onto the railing so her wobbly legs
wouldn’t slide out from under her. She chanced a glance up and saw the camera.
How could she have forgotten where they were?

He looked back at the space they’d just vacated and
raised an eyebrow. “Blind spot,” he whispered. “Didn’t you know?”
