Guardians: The Girl by Lola StVil

******OVER 450 FIVE STAR REVIEWS!*******

Sitting there in the car, a part of me bitterly resented what she was doing to me. I knew it wasn’t her fault. But does she have to be so... alluring? I need to focus on something else besides the spot between her earlobe and neck. It looked so soft. Her lips were slightly parted as she looked out the window. I wanted to part them further with mine. I put both my hands on the steering wheel. I could not allow myself to let go until she was out of the car. Suddenly she leaned in and kissed me. It was far better than I could even begin to explain to you. I've fought and died a slow and painful death on earth. And nothing, NOTHING can compare to how hard it was for me to pull away from her lips. I don't think any angel could to do it twice in a lifetime...

Excerpts

“Your courage is in your tears. Every time you cry, you lose a little bit more of it. That’s why you’re so breakable. Not because you’re human, because you’re always shedding courage from your eyes.”

~~~

Marcus, choose me. Choose the path that is perilous and leads to certain annihilation because it’s also the path that leads to me. They can’t understand that we are powerless to stop what we have for each other. But we know. We know that if we don’t bend to the will of this love, it will break us.

~~~

“I heard this guy say once that he thought if he said ‘no’ to doing drugs then the fight was over. But it turns out he had to say ‘no’ each and every day. I didn’t get it until I met you. When I first fell for you, I said ‘no’ to it. Then the next day the feeling came back. Now every single day, I have to say ‘no’ to being with you.”

Praise "This book shows a whole other side of angels the good, the bad, and the ugly. Each character has their own story or "core" . This is only the beginning. Where can I find the second book?" ~Maya Twitty "Could not put it down!!" ~Misty "I didn't actually chose this book on purpose but I got it because it was free. After reading the first chapter I was hooked...and devastated. How could you let that happen Lola? I definitely recommend that you read this book...with a box of tissues." ~Amazon Review

Monday Mayhem: Hi-ho! Hi-ho! It’s back to work I go!

Can you believe the summer is winding down already? In another week the school buses will be running and the mornings will grow crisp. And my summer will be officially over.

I didn’t have a summer break scheduled but I knew I needed some downtime to refill the creative well. So I worked hard to turn in my September 1st manuscript two months early. Summers are always busy around here so I knew that I’d need the downtime. And it was wonderful though it went far too fast. I was able to do some needlework and some cooking/baking.

Now that it’s time to get back to work, I’m a little ahead of the game as I already have some proposals in with my editor for a new contract with Harlequin. I’m also in the middle of a special project, which I’m very excited about. I can’t wait to share the details with you. So I have lots to look forward to this fall. :-)

My goal is to do as much writing outside on the porch as I can before the weather turns too cold. I have two books to complete before the end of the year. And I have the feeling the next few months are going to fly by.

Not to mention I have a holiday romance coming out October 1st, A PRINCESS BY CHRISTMAS. :-)

A royal kiss under the mistletoe... 

Prince Alexandro Castanovo arrives in snowy New York intent on protecting his royal family from scandal. And when Reese Harding—down-to-earth and heart-stoppingly beautiful—finds room for him at her inn, it seems like the perfect twist of fate. 

Not long ago Reese's world came crumbling down, shaking her foundations. But this enigmatic stranger intrigues her! She's learned to be wary of secrets…but when she discovers Alex's true identity, might there be enough magic in the air to make this regular American girl a princess by Christmas…?

Tuesday Thinkable...

Some folks never exaggerate—they just remember big.

P.S. Today I'm visiting the Pink Heart Society with a new edition of FIGURING IT OUT. You can check it out HERE.

Monday Mayhem: Catching Up...

Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a good start. :-)

It's time to do a little catching up...

I submitted the second book in my Italian duet, Stefano and Jules's story, a few weeks ago. I received some light revisions and submitted those last week. And the best part, I heard back a few days later that it was officially accepted. Woohoo! That feeling of excitement never fades away.

I also learned the title for the first book in the duet, Dante and Lizzie's story, THE PLAYBOY OF ROME. :-)

Expect both of these books to be released back-to-back in the Spring of 2015. I'll let you know as soon as they are on the scheduler.

So what am I doing now that I'm not pushing a deadline. Well I submitted proposals for upcoming books and I'm waiting to hear back on those. Fingers crossed. I'm really excited about those ideas. I'll keep you informed as I learn more.

And now that I'm taking some downtime to enjoy the last days of summer and do some things I don't have time to do when I'm rushing to meet deadlines. So I've spent a bit of time in the kitchen cooking and baking. I've also been doing some needlework.

 

 

This is the beginning of what is going to be a pillow. I know it doesn't look like much now, but I promise it will. I'll post a picture of the finished product...eventually. :-)
