News & Updates

Your Money Shot is here! Completed Series Alert for Blue Ivy Prep

August 29, 2023

Sorry, couldn’t resist! It’s here! Release day! The fourth and final book in the Blue Ivy Prep series that kicked off with Problem Child is now complete. I feel like we just kicked this series off and at the same time that we’ve been with them forever.

It doesn’t feel like enough. But can it ever feel like enough with KC and the D*uchebags Three? I don’t think so…
Be sure to read the afterword y’all! *winks* I can’t wait to hear what you think. Finishing a series is always a little bittersweet, but this one actually felt kind of triumphant. I am so ready for what’s next…

Money Shot is book 4, so be sure to start with Problem Child.

Blurb:

Kaitlin Crosse wields an extraordinary power over me. She pushes, dares, and drives me to the brink of madness. Ever since our paths intertwined, my obsession with her has been absolute and unyielding.

Every aspect of her calls out to me, yet the very thing I yearn for the most might be forever beyond my grasp. She resists my attempts to possess and protect her. She refuses my claims, asserting her fiercely independent nature.

That same, unwavering self-reliance only intensifies my attraction to her, and ignites a fierce desire to eradicate the pain in her eyes. Pain we inflicted upon her. Pain her father has inflicted. Pain that the world relentlessly imposes upon her.

I don’t want to share her with anyone. Not my brothers. Not her friends. Not the world.

But that’s not what Ace needs…

And I need her.

So I have to become what she needs, and that means working with my brothers, her closest friends, and her family. It means fighting to keep her safe when the whole world seems to want to tear her apart.

I won’t let that happen.

We won’t.

Kaitlin Crosse, my ace, my fixation, and my future.

P.S. We are working on the paperback, just a little behind on getting the cover. Hopefully I’ll be loading up today!!

Cover Reveal Day! The Bay Ridge Royals are coming!

August 11, 2023

CROSSOVER NOVELLA – BAY RIDGE ROYALS | BOOK ONE:

Photographer: CJC Photography
Model: Lauren Summer

There’s a war brewing, and I’m right in the middle of it ready to crush anyone who gets in my way…

I was born into this world. Power and wealth are the keys to controlling it, but they aren’t everything. They are a means to an end when it comes to protecting the people I care about. 

I’ve known my destiny since I was old enough to sit at the table. Everything in my life has been focused on preparing me for the future. Know your enemies, your allies, and the people in the middle you can buy.  

When he first appeared in my life, I had no idea who he was, but I never forgot his pretty face. While it’s been years and I barely recognize him, I can’t get enough. He doesn’t belong in my world and he has no idea how truly dangerous it is. 

Turns out, I’ll do anything to save my best friend, cross any line, and destroy him if I have to…

FULL LENGTH NOVEL – BAY RIDGE ROYALS | BOOK TWO:

Battle Lines, a FULL LENGTH Bay Ridge Royals novel, will now be releasing as BOOK TWO in the series on OCTOBER 17TH.
Photographer: Michelle Lancaster
Model: Dash Jett

Violence chose me a long time ago…

Survival isn’t everything. I’ve fought to protect my family. I’ve bled for them, killed for them, and gone to jail for them. There is no fight I will not take on for them…  

I’ve been waging this war since I was seven years old. The only thing that’s changed is the battlefield itself.

For Mayhem, I’ll trade in the grime of the streets for the illusions of her shimmering world. Only all that glitter is hiding a well of sin and corruption that leaves blood in its wake. This isn’t my world, but I won’t be defeated by it.

I may have lost battles before, but I won’t lose this one. If that means I have to drown in darkness, then it’s a price I’m willing to pay.

Both are available for preorder right now!

July 14, 2023

As hard as it is to believe, we have the cover for the fourth and final book in the Blue Ivy Prep series. While it feels like we just launched on this journey, we’re setting the “stage” for the final show. I am so excited to share this with you. My hat is off to Stephanie Heinritz from Vicious Desires Design once again for the loving attention to detail. KC was on Problem Child, Jonas was on Mad Boys, Ramsey was on Party Crashers, so who else would we have on Money Shot but Mr. Ninja Kisser himself: Lachlan Nash.

The model is Anthony Patamisi by photographer Michelle Lancaster. It’s hard to express how excited I am to share this cover with you!

The book releases on August 29th. Summer just hot hotter.

What’s your flavor? Book Boyfriend Edition

June 27, 2023

Hot Professor, Ninja Kisser, Musical Muse…  Are you ready for Book 3 of Blue Ivy Prep? If you haven’t read Problem Child and Mad Boys, I would recommend pausing to grab those first as this series needs to be read in order.

I would like to offer up a correction for a mistake in Mad Boys. There is a mention that Pen’s eyes are exactly like KC’s. They are, but another point says that Pen’s eyes are brown. They are not supposed to be brown, they are supposed to be the same blue as KC’s. While I have submitted the corrections, they do not always reflect in previously sold material, so I wanted to own up to that oops here.

There is a brief recap included in the foreword for Party Crashers to remind you of what happened previously in the series along with triggers to be mindful of.

If you have read this far, thank you. Party Crashers is the third in a four book series following Kaitlin Crosse as she attends Blue Ivy Prep, an exclusive boarding, prep, and college school for the wealthy and the privileged.

In the meanwhile, enjoy this image of me with Chad Hurst, I got to meet him at BABE while I was in Australia. The model for Ramsey is a real doll! More news on the BABE trip coming soon.

 

Thank you again for taking a chance on this series, I can’t wait to hear what you think of KC and the douchebags three. Be sure to join us in my reader group on Facebook where we talk books, book loving, some spoilers, teasers for the future, and bonus scenes. The fourth and final book Money Shot, releases at the end of August.

Grab Your Tissues! The final 82nd Street Vandals book is here!

May 23, 2023

Fierce Dancer is the ninth and final book of the 82nd Street Vandals series. If you have not read the first eight, stop. Do not pass Go. Grab book one: Savage Vandal, and start there.

Seriously.

This is a series that really must be read in order.

Every series has a beginning, middle, and end. Some we can see coming, some ambush us. This one? This one came to life and flourished on its own. Some pieces were incredibly clear, others were a mystery—a genuine mystery—until I found out what happened right alongside the characters.

Did I know every twist and turn the story would take? Yes. And no. Some of it was organic, other pieces were guideposts, set into the bedrock. I knew when we reached them, we would be at turning points in the overall story.

Now… we’re here. The last book. So much went into the writing of this book, this whole series that it feels almost surreal to say this is the last one. From the first moment their story presented itself to me, I was lost in their world. Every dark and gritty moment has held me captive as the story unfolded. Now, with the war raging and the Vandals having lost so much, it’s time for Fierce Dancer, our final installment.

As we celebrate today’s release, I’m in Sydney, Australia. I spent all of last week in New Zealand, falling in love with that country and now I’m here in Oz, getting ready for BABE – the Ballgowns and Books Event in June.

So much to see, do, and research. That, however, is a tale for another day. Literally and figuratively. Be sure to scroll down for a few pics of my adventures as well as the first look at Party Crashers, we revealed the cover over the weekend. Book Three of Blue Ivy Prep will be released at the end of June.

Even as we celebrate the last chapter of the Vandals, we are diving on to the next chapter in KC’s life and we have the Bay Ridge Royals to look forward to. More on them soon.

For now, I want to thank you for reading. Thank you for rooting for the Vandals. Thank you for being so invested in their story.

I’ll see you on the flip side.

xoxo

Heather

Are you ready for it? The cover for Party Crashers is here and my hat is off to Stephanie Heinritz from Vicious Desires Design once again for the loving attention to detail. KC was on Problem Child, Jonas was on Mad Boys, and for Party Crashers? Ramsey Malone is here to stay.

Our countdown for Party Crashers is ongoing and the book will be released June 27th!  Are you ready for more of KC, Torched, and the Douchebags Three?

Blurb:

From the moment I learned she was coming to our school, I had a gut feeling it would end in disaster. Out of all the schools in the world, why did Kaitlin Crosse have to choose ours? Her presence confused my brothers and created tension between them, but I soon realized my initial assumptions about her were completely wrong.

It was me who possessed the flaws of being wild, arrogant, selfish, inconsiderate, and foolish. My bad judgment call in the midst of the school’s scandal may have destroyed everything I wanted.

As the world tears Kaitlin apart, my brothers and I find ourselves trapped in a web of lies. Our mother despises her, and even our stepfather’s allegiance is uncertain. Kaitlin trusts no one, and who can blame her?

But I refuse to wait for her forgiveness or return. If I want her, I have to take action. Kaitlin needs me, and now, I know I need her too.

All of us do.
