Cat Grant Week (Guest Post & GIVEAWAY)

We're doing something different this week at my blog by showcasing one author.  And that author is the wonderful Cat Grant who has two books being released this month!  We're starting off the week with a visit from Cat talking about her new releases as well as letting us know about the awesome giveaway she has going on in honor of these book's being released. Starting tomorrow and through the rest of the week will be reviews of her two new releases as well as two classics.  So let's get the fun started and give a big welcome to Cat Grant.......

Hi! Thanks for joining me on my double-duty blog tour! I’ve got two books coming out this month – By Chance, the first book in my rewritten, re-edited, self-published Courtland Chronicles series, and Fearless, Book Three in my Irresistible Attraction series from Riptide Publishing.

It’s been a whirlwind month, with the holidays and two books coming out. A big thank you to Jody for hosting me here all week!

So, now that 2012 is drawing to a close, what are your plans for the new year? Any resolutions?

I plan to release six books next year—and with the next two Courtland Chronicles books (Strictly Business and Complications) and the last installment in my Irresistible Attraction series (Flawless) in the pipeline, I’m already halfway there. I’ve also got the last two Courtland books (The Arrangement and Triad) to revise and re-edit, which means I need another project.

So what’ll it be? An instructor/cadet romance set at Annapolis, or a three-guy ménage with two MMA fighters and their coach?

Got a preference? Sing out!

My current releases are By Chance …

A life of wealth and privilege doesn’t equal happiness—just ask Eric Courtland. Growing up with a cold, unfeeling father and unstable mother has taught him exactly what he doesn’t want out of life or love. The troubled young man prefers a solitary life and is content to keep it that way until a campus emergency saddles him with an unwanted roommate.
Popular, wholesome, straight Nick Thompson is far more temptation than Eric’s prepared for, but Nick’s warm, easygoing manner gradually cracks through Eric’s prickly protective shell.
After Eric suffers a traumatic attack, their friendship gives way to an intense passion. Eric’s no stranger to casual sex, but what he feels for Nick is something deeper, and more fragile.
Independent Eric doesn't know the first thing about being in a relationship, much less with a lover who can't even admit he's gay. But conservative Nick can't seem to find his way out of his own personal closet.
Rock, meet hard place.

And Fearless …

How can you plan for the future when escaping the past seems impossible?
After over a year together, Connor Morrison and Wes Martin decide to tie the knot. But an ethics complaint regarding their deeply non-traditional relationship threatens Connor’s job and Wes’s Ph.D. The fact that Connor tried to keep it from Wes—even with the best of intentions—makes the situation even worse and casts a pall over their plans for a Christmas wedding in New York.
It doesn’t help that Connor still treats Wes like glass, though Wes insists he’s recovered from the brutal assault he suffered a year and a half earlier. Wes may be okay, but Connor isn’t. Memories of taking a battered, terrified Wes to the emergency room that night still haunt him, and he can’t let go of the need to protect Wes from any and everything life might throw at him.
But Wes has had enough. Between the specter of the ethics complaint and Connor’s overprotectiveness, he’s already beginning to question their plans. Add in a family ashamed of and angered by his choices, and Wes might just leave Connor standing at the altar.

  5. I vote for the instructor/cadet story. Sounds intriguing. I really enjoy your covers. Congrats on all the releases.


  6. My vote is for the instructor/cadet story. I finished Priceless. It was so much more than I expected. I was engaged from the start to the finish, and really liked the characters in it. A terrific story.

  16. Good luck with the book releases! It's a tough choice with the two books you want to write, but I'd go with the three-way, because that's the way I roll. Fictionally, anyway :p
