It's finally here!

CHOSEN, Book 3 of the Guardians' League, is out now!

I love this book, even though it gave me fits. FITS, I tell you. Parts of it were written out of order. Other bits lived in my brain until time to write them down, then fluttered away like spooked moths. The ending changed from what I'd planned, which required a rewrite of the beginning. And so forth. Writers can complain about writing forever, and I'm a pro at it--complaining, I mean--but I'll spare you. Suffice it to say that birthing this particular baby was not easy, and I really wanted there to be a father to curse and threaten during the process.

But all that aside--I love this book.

I love Gareth. He's so complex, yet inside, he's a simple guy. He personifies integrity. He's a protector without being overbearing. He's funny without crossing over to silly. He's romantic without being cheesy. And he's sexy as hell, baby. I want this guy to jump out of my mind and come sweep me off my feet, like, yesterday.

And I adore Alexa. She's strong enough to admit when she needs help. She knows her own value and stands up for herself. She's a healer who cares deeply about her chosen calling. She's loyal to a fault, and would do anything and everything for a friend.

Yet neither of them are perfect. Perfect people are so very boring.

I really hope that you like this book. Despite the endless hard labor without any of the good pain drugs at all, it was actually fun to write. For the most part. When I wasn't cussing it.

And thank God that books don't wake you up for midnight feedings.

Well, other perfect people are boring. You and I, though, are perfectly interesting. Ahem.
