Authors with Heart Spotlight and Giveaway: Stacy Claflin’s When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

I have another “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway from the 2018 project! In these features, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2018 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to three Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle, Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM, and VA Portland Health Care System in Vancouver.

This week in the authors with heart spotlight, I have Stacy Claflin's WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Stacy's book:

“Oh, the feels.
This book hit me right in the heart. It was just so — *sigh*
I'm not even sure I can put into words how much I love this book. Truly amazing.” —Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME:

He's on the road to fame. She's at the end of the line. A chance meeting will change everything.

Kenna Mitchell grew up despised and mistreated by those who should've loved and protected her. Now homeless and alone, with pain too heavy to bear, she's ready to end it all.

Enter Rogan Scott, an up-and-coming rock star with one focus—his band. Out in the woods, looking for song inspiration, he comes across a beautiful girl seconds from ending her life.

Rogan saves Kenna, only to face her anger. Intrigued by her reactions and motivations, he devotes himself to getting to know the real Kenna Mitchell. Turns out, she doesn't even know herself. Soon their tenuous friendship blossoms into love, and Rogan pulls her into his world of rock and roll. But his social circle proves as cruel as the one she left behind.

As everything spirals out of control, Kenna discovers a shocking secret about her past. With each new lie uncovered, she's gutted worse than before. She rallies every time—until she learns a painful detail she's certain she'll never recover from.

Can Rogan show Kenna that life is worth living, or will the merciless truths of her life convince her to finally end it all?

Here's the blurb for HIS BLUSHING BRIDE:

Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta…

Piper Tierney is busy wrapping up the school year and planning the music for Marietta’s Wedding Of The Century. She does not need one of her parents’ backpacking hippies under foot. Except the guy they let stay in their house is so much more than the California couch-surfer he resembles. Before she knows it, she’s making time to make time, even though he’s only in town for a couple of weeks.

Taking a break from working on his doctorate in political science, Sebastian Bloom wants to reassure himself his sister isn’t making another mistake with her upcoming wedding to a Marietta rancher. He’s definitely not looking for a bride for himself. Marriage and family are a trap. But Piper is cute, funny, and wants to move on from her ex.

They agree to a no strings affair, but will they wind up tying the knot?

Indigo Bay Sweet Romance Series: Jean C. Gordon’s Sweet Entanglement

Welcome to Indigo Bay!

I'm excited to part of the Spring 2018 launch of the Indigo Bay Sweet Romance series along with Pamela Kelley, Kay Correll, Jean Oram, Stacy Claflin, and Jean C. Gordon. The Indigo Bay world has been written so readers can dive in anywhere in the series without missing a beat so grab a glass of sweet tea and enjoy these sweet, heartwarming romances…

The sixth and final release in this Spring 2018 launch is SWEET ENTANGLEMENT by Jean C. Gordon!

About the book…

Is three the charm?

Lauren Cooper is on her way to her life’s dream. She’s financed and finished college and law school all on her own. And she’s up for partner at the largest law firm in Indigo Bay. There’s nothing to stop her from concentrating everything on achieving that goal. Until Jesse Brewster, the man who broke her heart twice, shows up sleeping off the night before on the beach, and she’s called in to serve as his public defender.

Looking to make a new start after the racing accident that ended his lucrative motocross career and sent him spiraling into darkness, the former champion had envisioned an entirely different scenario if he ever saw Lauren again. That vision was more along the lines of the successful businessman he’d be once he rehabbed the seaside mansion he’s inherited from his uncle and sold it to open a custom bike shop.

Sparks fly between them, and Jesse vows to fan those sparks once he’s got the project successfully underway. But someone starts sabotaging it, putting Jesse behind on the deadline he has to meet to get the property off the Indigo Bay Planning Board’s condemned property list. And Lauren has a sick suspicion that her bosses are somehow involved.

Jesse and Lauren had once promised they’d wait for each other while they pursued their career dreams. Despite that broken promise, neither can deny the love that’s still between them. But now that they are on the cusp of reaching those dreams, are they willing to risk everything to renew that love?

Available at major eBook retailers, click here.
