Katie loves flip flops, chocolate, sweet tea and dirt between her toes. As far back as she can remember, she’s had a book in her hand. Reading has carried her to places she will never go. It has introduced her to people that she will never meet. When life is great and when it is rough, she’s always been able to find a book to carry her through. She finally decided to write down some of the stories in her head (yes, be scared) and heart after dawdling around and wasting years dreaming. She hopes you enjoy reading those stories as much as she loves writing them!
I have a big treat for you all today! This is one of the stops on the Shine Not Burn book blitz! I have book info (you’ll want to pre-order to get the great price), meet the characters, a Q & A with the author, and a GIVEAWAY!!
About The Book
Release Date: June 30, 2013
Genre: NA Romance
Synopsis: IT HAPPENED IN VEGAS. I can’t be held responsible. Things that happen there are supposed to stay there, right? Right? Yeeeah. Not so much. … Andie’s just days away from tying the knot, but there’s just ooooone little glitch. Apparently, she’s already married. Or someone with her name is married to a guy out in Oregon of all places, and the courthouse won’t issue her a marriage license until it’s all cleared up. Tripping her way through cow pies and country songs to meet up with a man who gets around places on horseback is her very last idea of how to have a good time, but if she’s going to get married, make partner at the firm, and have two point five kids before she’s thirty-five, she needs to get to the bottom of this snafu and fix it quick … before her fiance finds out and everything she’s been working toward goes up in flames.
Meet the Characters
The two main characters are Andie Marks and Gavin “Mack” MacKenzie. When the story begins Andie’s in her first job after law school, living in West Palm Beach, Florida. She’s a very goal-oriented person, following a Lifeplan that she wrote when she was a lost and confused teenager detailing how she was going to live her life. She’s got everything all figured out, her entire life scripted so she can get everything she wants out of her career and future husband. The problem is, life isn’t that predictable or controllable. Everything kind of falls apart when she goes to Las Vegas with her two best friends and she meets Mack.
Mack is a cowboy living on a ranch in Baker City, Oregon. He’s the cool, quiet type, with the typical cowboy look: jeans, belt buckle, boots, cowboy hat … plus all the best parts: broad shoulders, lots of muscle, and eyes as blue as the sky. He’s lived and worked on his family’s ranch his whole life, as comfortable on a horse as he is on his own two feet. He goes to Las Vegas for his brother’s bachelor party and his conservative, quiet lifestyle kind of falls apart when he and meets Andie at a blackjack table.

Author Q & A
You started out writing in YA. What brought you over to New Adult?
I’ve been a reader of new adult titles even before they were called ‘new adult’. And I love the age group it covers. 18-30 years old is such a great time in life, isn’t it? I mean, it’s when you sow your wild oats, learn about yourself in the context of the whole world and not just your family and friends; it’s where you figure out who you’re going to be. The adult-formative years I guess you could call it. And the sex part is awesome too, I won’t lie. You can only get so sexy with a YA book, so as a writer, I have to hold back. In NA, I don’t have to do that. It can be passionate, raw, sometimes awkward and full of bad decisions, but it can be REAL. I guess that’s what I love about NA most … it’s raw and real.
You have a lot of novels in the urban fantasy genre. What interested you in writing romances?
Romances were my first love. Well … aside from Disney fairy tales. But then again, those are all romances aren’t they? They’ve got misunderstood heroines – beaten down by others – who are looking for love and understanding, finally finding it in the hands of a guy on horseback. I’ve read hundreds of romances in my time, from every publisher out there, including indie authors of course. It doesn’t matter how many I read, I always want more. Since I love them as a reader, I really wanted to try my hand as a writer in the genre. I have so many romance stories simmering in my brain right now, at this point, it’s like therapy just getting them out of there. I have 6 romances planned for the rest of the year and lots more for 2014. I’m going to be very busy. But I’m happy being busy because it’s very important to me that I keep hunger readers fed. I live to write for voracious readers.
What books do you have in the pipeline right now?
All kinds of good stuff! I’m so excited to get them out to readers. Here’s the NA Romance line-up for June, July, and August: Shine Not Burn, By Design, and Don’t Make Me Beautiful, and then a 3-book series that will be released on surprise dates this year: Rebel, Hellion, and Trouble.
