A PLACE TO HEAL (A FERRY CREEK NOVEL)

All Aribel Cromley can do is run. However, running into the arms of another biker was the last thing she wanted to do.
~
Darryl Stant has pretty much been the town outcast in Ferry Creek for his whole life, but he’s determined to prove that he’s not the man he once was. When he finds an injured Aribel, his only intention was to help her. Falling for her was not in his plan.

With nowhere to go until she heals, Aribel settles into Darryl’s house and even starts working at The Pot Diner. She begins to reconsider her original plan, until her past comes to Ferry Creek and soon, everyone is in harm’s way.

Darryl knows it’s his chance to show his gratitude to Ferry Creek for accepting him back by saving Aribel and the town.

Will Darryl survive the battle with his demons, or will another tragedy rattle the recovering town of Ferry Creek?

One Week to Ferry Creek!

Posted on

We are just one week away… seven days… that’s it! SEVEN DAYS until the release of the first book in the Ferry Creek series! I cannot tell you all how thrilled I am to have this happening. This series is so dear to my heart. The book is one of my favorites AND it’s the longest book I’ve ever had published!

So let’s celebrate this… I’m going to be holding contests from now until Spring! I want the entire world to know about Ferry Creek, but I need your help to do it! I need everyone to Facebook it, Tweet it, blog it, talk about it… let’s spread the word!  🙂

~~

Coming to Ferry Creek was supposed to be a short trip to settle a past, not begin a future.

The day billionaire businessman Sullivan Chasen receives a phone call that his father is dying is the day his world became turned upside down. The problem is that his father has been dead for ten years. The bigger problem is that the person who called keeps calling, insisting that Sullivan’s father is going to die soon.

A shocking DNA test suddenly has Sullivan questioning everything he has ever known and has him packing up and driving to the small town of Ferry Creek, North Carolina.

There, he confronts a past he never knew existed, including a half-brother who is living in a small apartment above the family diner, a local staple in Ferry Creek. What begins as a short trip to settle any necessary needs soon turns into a new life for Sullivan. The longer he stays in Ferry Creek, the more he falls in love with the small town… and a waitress named Jess who works at the diner.

A Voice to Love (Fallen Tuesday Book One) (A Brothers of Rock Novel)

The Brothers of Rock series continues with Fallen Tuesday!

Lead singer Luke Nolan’s sudden success is everything dreams are made of. Going from playing at a local dive bar to touring with mega band Chasing Cross, seemingly overnight, and ultimately saving the headliner’s tour, has the men of Fallen Tuesday absolutely loving the life on the road. In fact, Luke is loving it so much that he has used every excuse to not tell his bandmates about his medical condition that is worsening with each performance.

In a small town just outside Syracuse, New York, Amy Deleranne seeks solitude in the kitchen of Tommy Two’s, her uncle Tom’s restaurant that should have been hers by now. She understands his emotional attachment, but she has poured her life into its survival and has more at stake than anyone knows…

With Luke battling a skyrocketing career and the medically unknown and Amy terrified to look over her shoulder at all times, it is no wonder that sparks fly when they meet. However, can their hearts, and their careers, survive the secrets they’ve been keeping?

Update and a new western romance!

Posted on

I know the blog has been quiet lately… and it’s because I’m working on a new site! 🙂

Everything should be done by the start of the new year.

In other great news, the next book in the Mail Order Romance series is now available!!!!!

Don’t miss TRUE LOVE WEST:

Sarah Crepley is used to a simple life at home with her emotionally distant parents and her sister, Rose. When Rose faces a tragic situation, it becomes blatantly obvious that Sarah has a much different relationship with her parents than Rose does. Tired of feeling invisible to those around her, Sarah heeds the advice of her sister and looks down a different path for her life… becoming a mail order bride.
*
Charlie Huntereen never intended to become a man who lies, but after receiving no written responses from the truth, he decides to leave out the fact that he does indeed have a daughter. He has faith that the right woman will understand why he did what he had to do. When he receives Sarah’s letter and discovers that she understands his loneliness, he can’t fathom writing back to her with the truth…
*
Will Sarah stay in Kansas to fulfill her commitment to a man who lied to her? Or will she board a train and face a life of loneliness? True Love West is a novel that yanks at the heartstrings, and makes you question whether you could trust your heart once it has already been broken.

Care to get a copy???? 🙂

Everything I have right now I owe to you…

Posted on

Everything I have right now I owe to you, the readers. I wake every morning and think about who has read my books the night before. I think about those who will read during the day. Each time I get an email, Tweet, Facebook message, or a review talking about how someone couldn’t sleep because they kept reading… that’s my dream come true.

When my books became published, it seemed I had a set path to follow. But thanks to some begging, careful writing, and dedicated readers like you all, things have grown. Brothers of Rock was supposed to be an experiment… now it’s going to be a ten book series following two bands. Rock Her Curves was supposed to be one book… it turned into two books with an extension for two more. Even my western romance books that had been collecting dust for a long time were given a chance at life. And as of this writing, the three books released under the Claire Charlins name are in the top 10 in Kindle western with West For Love being #1! Because of you.

I’m writing to confess a secret… I have another pen name. Chances are some of you have ‘met’ this person. Some of you may have loved the books or hated them, I’m not sure. Thanks to your dedication to me, I’m able to bring this pen name to an end, thus allowing me to write more books for you all. Now – *drum roll* – I have also been writing under the name… London Casey.

There, it’s in the open now.

Yes. Karolyn James is London Casey.

For those who don’t know, London Casey writes new adult romance. The first trilogy I wrote was called “The Boys of DownCrash.” It hit the coming-of-age and new adult charts for a while in the summer. The reviews have been great and the fans loved it. But then I realized something. I don’t want to cater to two different fan bases. I want one. One for Karolyn James. If you like Chasing Cross, you’ll love DownCrash. If you enjoy Brothers of Rock, then why not read The Boys of DownCrash? The lines between romance and new adult romance come and go, which is fine, because it’s about the story. And what this means is that YOU, the readers, get more books to read.

The best part is this…

I have books written under ALL THE NAMES!

What’s on tap for Karolyn James? I’ve got Rock Her Curves and the 5th book in the Chasing Cross Brothers of Rock series!

For London Casey, there’s a new trilogy written!!!! YES, I know, it’s exciting!  The trilogy follows a couple who are caught up in each other but fate keeps pushing and pulling them away. The trilogy is my personal favorite writing(s) of this year. I can’t wait to share it!

And finally, for Claire Charlins, there’s more western romance!

Now, to explain my plan for London Casey… since I’ve been promoting the name and new trilogy, both the London Casey name and my name will appear on the covers. But after this trilogy, the name will be no more. It will be Karolyn James. That’s it. The only other name will be Claire Charlins – just to ensure readers can differentiate the western romance from the rest of the romance novels.

So go check out the London Casey page and grab The Boys of DownCrash trilogy! 🙂

Cover Reveal – A Marriage West

Posted on

The next book in the Mail Order Romance series is coming out tomorrow!  🙂

And this is the official cover for it… I can’t wait to share this story with you all. A romance about a woman who goes to Kansas to become a mail order bride and the man she’s supposed to meet doesn’t show…

Monday update!

Posted on

Hey everyone!  Another Monday is here. Busy week for me. Getting so much stuff together for September and into the fall/winter season. Not to mention getting ready to send two boys back to school! I’m really excited for September because Brothers of Rock will be on tour online with the biggest blog tour to date for me. AND Rock Her Curves #3 is coming out. AND I’ve added another western romance to my plate. The success has been amazing and the requests are flooding for MORE MORE MORE! So that’s what I’m doing… writing, formatting, preparing everything.

 

Thanks for all the support!
