Where There’s a Will, There’s a Randy

Osburn_HometoStay_front_cvr_FINALIf my blog title confuses you, I can explain. Today, May 1, 2014, the third installment in my Anchor Island Series, HOME TO STAY, is officially released to the world. As for the blog title, this book is the story of Will (Willow) Parsons and Randy Navarro.

Get it? Lame, I know.

But I’m so excited for this book to finally be fully and complete released. In all formats, including print, audio, and Kindle. Here’s the blurb:

Willow Parsons’s two new best friends are getting married, putting her squarely on the sidelines of romance—which suits her just fine. After escaping the ultimate Mr. Wrong, she is more than happy to spend her days slinging drinks in Dempsey’s Bar & Grill, and her nights alone. But her Anchor Island refuge has just one catch: muscle-bound charmer Randy Navarro.

Everyone in town knows that Randy, owner of the local fitness club, is a giant teddy bear.

Everyone, it seems, except for Willow. He’s convinced that her avoidance is more than just playing hard to get, and is determined to uncover the secrets that keep her on edge. But when old fears are dragged into the light, can Randy get Willow to stay and fight for their love…or will she take flight, leaving both him and Anchor Island behind?

Home to Stay is a charming, romantic tale about following your heart to find where you belong.

And here’s the trailer:

I’ve been living with these characters for nearly four years now, and they feel like family to me. Which is why I do a little happy dance every time someone says something nice about them. As a long time reader, it makes my heart happy to know I’m able to give others a story they can get lost in.

As for what comes next, YES there is one more book in this series. MORE TO GIVE will be out later this year and features Sam Edwards, whom you meet in HOME TO STAY, and a newcomer to the island with whom Sam has quite a complicated history. And because I love adding pets to my stories, you’ll get to meet Cecil, the talking parrot. He has a big vocabulary, and an even bigger attitude.

But wait, there’s more! Tracy Brogan, Kim Law, Kristan Higgins, and myself are running a really fun contest for Mother’s Day. Starting tomorrow (May 2) through the 9th, you can enter to win a $50 gift card as well as a stack of books from the four of us. And the best part? Your momma will win the exact same prize!

It’s called the One For Your Momma! Contest and you can find all the details on our Facebook pages. How to enter as well as all the rules will be available starting tomorrow (May 2). (It’s easy, promise.)

I have a newsletter going out today in which I’m giving away FOUR prizes to four lucky newsletter subscribers. Didn’t get it? Haven’t subscribed? It’s easy to do. Just hop over to my home page, fill in your name and email address there on the right, and you’re in.

Thank you to everyone who has made the last twelve months so much fun. MEANT TO BE was released a year ago this month, and I could never have imagined all the awesome that has come my way since.

Love, hugs, and virtual cupcakes for everyone!

    I have read all three books and they are great. Hope that you will be coming out with more books soon. Great reading. KLove the way you write. I have been a book worm since I was a small child and worked at a bookstore from 1979 to 1984. Best job every for the perk was we could read as much as we wanted. Hope to see a new book out soon. A must read author.

      Thank you, Twyla! You are beyond sweet. It makes my day to hear you love the books. And there will be more! I’ll actually have two out later this year, as the final installment in the Anchor Island series will release in late fall, and then I’m participating in an anthology collection that will release in November. It’s called COWBOYS FOR CHRISTMAS and has been very fun to write. I’m leaving the beach and adding some twang. 🙂

    I hope you write more books! I love the Anchor series!! I am so disappointed to not find a pile more written by you. Will you be writing a bunch more, I hope?

    1. Terri says:

      Thank you, Pat!! Yes, there is one more book in the Anchor Island series, and it will be out later this year. (I really need to get it added to the book list here.) Then a new series starts in 2015 set in a small town in Tennessee called Ardent Springs. I’m working on building the pile, I promise!
