New Release: IMPULSION

If you are signed up for the newsletter then you already know my BIG NEWS. I have a new novel releasing on May 19th! Impulsion. My first contemporary novel, as well as my first New Adult novel.


 Every single novel I release manages to get my blood pumping – simply because sharing a daydream with others is nothing less than heart-racing.

 This one is different, no doubt. Writing it stretched my comfort zone beyond any horizon I have ever seen. 

 By nature I love the paranormal; I love writing about it. I love building worlds from the bottom up, I love taking rules that are widely known in a society and knocking them down, and building my own. I love to weave a story to the point where the paranormal feels normal and normal is just odd. So needless to say, I was shocked when a fluttering daydream that passed my mind last year did not have one lick of paranormal within it. 

 I tried to ignore this story, I was focused on my Web of Hearts and Souls, still am, but the more I pushed it away the louder the little voices in my head became. 

 The biggest fear I have with starting any novel is not finishing it, because quite frankly, if I plan to do something, have decided something is going to happen, I will find a way to make it happen. The notion will loom over me like an ominous storm cloud until the point where prickles of stress begin to ease over me, daring to rob my breath. I know that sounds dramatic, but I just wanted to give you a glimpse of my struggle—writing a novel about the real world? Writing a novel that had to abide by the rules of a known society? Writing a novel that took sensual moments further than I ever have…oh boy.


 Though there are differences in this novel’s style and my past ones, there is one key element that has remained: Love. This story begins when the characters are young. Between them, there is a burn of a first passion, a rush, one that tells them life will never be the same. A feeling that is so powerful that in some way, it is paranormal, simply because it rips them from the reality they know and places them in a new world. It opens them to new dangers, the danger of losing this rush, the danger of not having control over an outcome, of being so intoxicated by their emotions that they are unable to think. As Impulsion reaches its end the characters are older, but the rush is still there, that burn.


 Love between two people that are meant to be together, who will endure and overcome anything to make that happen, is something I love to write about. There is power in love, there is power in the trials of life, and when it's all said and done, one glance back will always show you that, for better or worse, you landed exactly where you were meant to be.


With a glance Wyatt Doran stole Harley Tatum’s heart. With each summer that passed, touch by touch, they robbed each other’s innocence, birthing a love that was so deep that it scorched within. Without warning, they were ripped from the clutches of each other, placed in lives that were worlds apart. Only to cross paths after a freak accident where Harley’s horse rig was flipped. An accident that Wyatt Doran, from fire station 32, responded. The tension was immediate, the emotions were raw. One breath told them they were not the same as before, one touch…changed their world.

You can preorder this novel here…

Impulsion is part of a set: Station 32. Station 32 is a fire station in Willowhaven. Though the stories that follow Impulsion are ones that impact members of that squad, and that town, they will not have to be read in order, in fact they could be read as stand-alones. Each of the boys from that firehouse are extremely different, and their paths stretch in distinctive directions even though a brotherhood unites them. Wyatt Doran, a leading character in Impulsion, gives us a glimpse of these boys before they claimed their passion as fireman.

 I really am excited about this book and I cannot wait to hear what you think of it. Below you have a chance to win an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of this novel).

 I’ve seen a few questions posted on the teaser images that I placed on the social networks. One I’m sure this post answered. No, this novel has nothing to do with the Web of Hearts and Souls. The second is when is the next Web of Hearts and Souls novel out – and in what series. The next book out in the Web comes from the Insight series: Emanate. An exact date has not been announced, but I assure you it's closer than you think, it will be an early summer release.
 The following release, after Emanate, will introduce another chapter in the Web of Hearts and Souls. Exaltation, a new series, will present a brand new set of characters; ones that you will see emerge in other series in this Web. The popular question – is this Cashton’s series – the answer, yes and no. He only vaguely appears in this first novel, but it is his true home…I have to say this was a fun novel to write – it is set in New Orleans! Fun times ahead ☺
