When you just can't stay away

Corinne Elliott and Luke Evans meet at a combined sorority and fraternity party.  They literally end up tied to one another.  He was just a nice surprise in the party she did not want to go to.
Cori is typically the best student.  Top grades, hard worker, even stays home to get the homework ahead of schedule.  She does not want to ruin any chance of scholarships since she is uncertain how to pay for her tuition.   Luke is stunned at how hot the girl he got tied up with is.  She gets a bit loaded and lays a major kiss on him.  Then they find out they have a class together.  Seems there could be future potential if they are willing to take a chance.  Except they are both hiding some secrets from the past.

Cover Reveal Today - THE CHOICE

About the book:
How do you heal from your past when you're still trapped within it?

I lost myself the night of the party. Just like that, my innocence and my sanity were torn away.

I would like to say that time heals all wounds, but it doesn't. And I would like to say that falling in love is what rescued me, but it wasn't. Nobody told me what to expect in the coming days and weeks and months after conceiving a rapist's child. Years later, my wounds are still just as fresh as the night they were made. It would be so easy to disappear and allow the memories to consume me.

But that's the choice, isn't it? To live instead.

Allison was born and raised in the mountains of Oregon, birthed of the crisp, clean air and rainy forests. She now resides in Oklahoma City, though she is still thoroughly attached to her home and finds much inspiration for her stories whenever she has a chance to return. A…

Blog Tour # 5 - ONLY FOREVER

About ONLY FOREVER: The fourth and final installment of the Only series. Must be read in order.

There comes a time when Emma must face the secret she kept from Grayson. But she never thought it would be while she stood on stage at Emerald’s. The seconds she has to convey that her life is in danger are lost in the devastation that she sees rip through him.

She pinches her eyes closed. “Don’t leave me. No matter how mad you are, please, please don’t leave me here alone.”

But there’s more on the line than just Emma’s safety. There’s the danger that brought Titan’s Delta team in to the strip club in the first place. A threat that’s too close to home, too close to the family, the daughter and woman Grayson plans to claim.

Author Interview, with CK Dawn

Where did the idea for A Neophyte’s Tale come from?After writing book one in the Netherwalker Series ~ Cloak of Shadows, a lot of people really wanted to know more about Abbey Thorne’s past and where she came from. And I have to admit, I was one of them too. I wanted to dig deep into that grimy place she came from and scoop her out of it almost like a protective parent. So I decided to listen to Abbey more intently when she spoke to me and let her tell her story. The result was the short story A Neophyte’s Tale the prequel to the entire Netherwalker Series. I think it gives greater insight into a neophyte’s experiences versus a sheltered privileged kid would have growing up in The King’s Court that readers were craving.Where do you get your inspiration from to write such strong female leads and who are you more like Abbey Thorne or Lourdes Reese?Some author friends of mine asked me this very same question after reading both Cloak of Shadows and A Neophyte’s Tale and it has become one …

Abigail Thorne hears voices. Well, one voice repeating one word over and over again. Soft and sweet with the promise of power, it calls to her. The twelve year old has no idea that the tender little word is a catalyst that serves to reveal a world hidden to most humans.

Abbey has yet to discover that following the word’s call to its origin will change the course of her life forever. Abbey and her mother don’t have much, and depending on the day, sometimes they don’t even have a roof over their heads. She wants more out of life than just wondering where her next meal is. So she shouldn’t be wasting her time daydreaming about going on a selfish quest, should she? Does she have the strength to leave behind what little she has?

Will she have the courage to break through t…
