Deliciously Obedient is at 6 Bookstores! $.99 for a limited time!

DELICIOUSLY OBEDIENT IS HERE and already in the top 100 on Amazon!


 
Reader response is overwhelming -- Deliciously Obedient skyrocketed into the top 100 on day 1 of publication, with readers claiming it's the best of the completed trilogy. Grab your copy NOW while it's on sale, and spread the word!

The final book in the Obedient trilogy asks whether being authentic means losing everything in order to gain yourself…

Ego bruised but spirits lifted by her relationship with Jeremy, her ex-lover's best friend, Lydia Charles comes home to her family's campground in coastal Maine with a new boyfriend, some old anxieties, and one big question: where's Michael Bournham?
Mike's spent the last month incognito, living at the Charles family campground and sorting through his past to make sense of his future. Dropping out of the media spotlight was the best choice he could have made, and with Lydia safe in the job he created for her, far away in Iceland, he has plenty of time to think about how he hurt her…and how to win her back.
 
Jeremy followed Mike's instructions to the letter: take care of Lydia. Falling hopelessly for her, though, wasn't in this free-wheeling globe trotter's plan. Meeting her parents and settling down triggers his own issues, and when a sudden tragedy hits one of Lydia's beloved relatives, he finds himself confronting his own past…and shaping the future.
 
It's all in Lydia's hands now as she breaks every rule in an effort to learn whether the rules ever mattered at all.

Deliciously Obedient coming 1/15/14

A delay for Deliciously Obedient -- just 1 week

Hello all. I am sorry to say that Deliciously Obedient is now scheduled for release on 1/15/14 -- a one week delay. Production issues have created the delay, and I know you've been so, so patient in waiting for this book! It's killing me to delay, but there's no choice, and I'm sorry to disappoint those of you who have been so eager for its release.

7 extra days isn't fun, but this book needs more attention -- and it's 45 pages longer than it was supposed to be, which means the conclusion to the trilogy is richer and more nuanced.

(Plus there's waaaaaay more sex in this one than I expected. Ahem. Not my fault the characters wanted more…I just follow their orders.)

In the meantime, I'll post excerpts -- promise! -- and I'm running some fun sales on other books. Sign up for my newsletter to get an email about those!

Thank you for reading and for being here -- and for this last little bit of patience!

All the best,

Julia
