I absolutely enjoyed reading A New Dawn.
I loved Essie and especially loved her business.
I loved the hunky beach man, Dean, and Xavier Cassidy.
I was captivated by Moana.
I loved the basis of the book – the mythical, goddess aspect of the book. It just made it that much more special.
And the steamy scenes… that just made everything special!
Thanks for reading, Leila!
I’m so excited about the reviews for A New Dawn that I can’t even form proper sentences about them. It’s kinda awesome and super-inspiring. (Good thing. I’ve got an early June deadline for a paranormal firefighter named Ezra. 😉 Not gonna do the humble-brag thing, not even. Just gonna bask in the glow of feeling awesome.
This story has super hot sex scenes and an edge of your seat HEA ending in a beautifully done Hawai’ian setting. It’s a perfect beach book, with more than enough plot to go with the super hot sex to keep my brain engaged along with my libido. Read On
I admit it, I check my sales rank on Amazon, Kobo, All Romance, and my Goodreads status at least once a day. It’s a sickness. An obsessive-compulsive’s nightmare. Fortunately, I don’t think I’ll do it as much with the next book. It’s less informative than I would’ve imagined and pretty demoralizing.

I mean, the reviewers are all strangers, but this person isn’t (as far as I know) even a professional reviewer. Just a reader who found my book, took a chance on it, and was delighted by it. Read On

Give a character a scene with a pet or a kid and that character’s instantly more relatable. That is, as long as the pet doesn’t steal the show. Fortunately Essie, the heroine of A New Dawn, isn’t the type to complain about being upstaged by a critter, or else she’d have left the building already.
Nearly every reader who’s had something to say about my book so far has commented on Smithy, the lame-legged, smelly, stubborn boar who eats from Essie’s compost heap and guards her house in return. I got a death threat from one of my editors for a scene I won’t spoil for you, because the boar’s fate was up in the air. The lovely Lily declared herself on “Team Smithy” from the outset, and the overly optimistic spouse said I could live off the merchandising rights for Smithy alone. Read On
