My readers met Ronnie Shay on April 1, 2016, and they delved into her online romance with Marcus Jordan. Who knew geeks could give girls heart palpitations?
(Uh…ME. I’m married to a computer engineer. I know my handsome, hunky geek quotient.)
The biggest complaint from readers of that early story: it ended to soon.
When my publisher introduced a new line of e-book only novellas, I made some changes to Ronnie and Marcus’ story and submitted it with a new title Reality Meets its Match. My Virtual Match-sters launched the new line with grace (if not gracefulness, Marcus is a bit klutzy you know).
But the new readers weren’t any happier about the way the book ended. “We want to know more.”
“Things were just getting started with them.”
“What happens next?”
And by the time the novella released with Roane, I had drafted a sequel.
Now I’m happy to share with you the amazing cover for the next installment of Ronnie and Marcus’ romance, Reality Bites.
Release Date: July 24, 2017
Ronnie wanted a Virtual Match, until she fell for the guy on the other end of the texts and emails.
After real-life dating for only a few weeks, things start to heat up. Ronnie’s crazy family gets crazier, and her therapist gives her an ultimatum.
Marcus teeters on the edge of falling in love, but when he learns Ronnie’s secret, he’s afraid of moving too fast. The idea of life without her terrifies him more than anything, but it seems like she’s closing him out. After all she’s been through (and going through), he can’t blame her.
Ronnie runs back to the safety of her career, but can her heart ever be free from what Marcus has awakened? And will he let her go?

At this time, I’ve got the third novella planned out but I’m not writing it until closer to the release date. AND those who sign up for my newsletter (click here if you want to do that) will get a few teasers from both the second and third books, maybe even before my publisher reads the third one.
