Bittersweet Junction Comes To Life

A lot of authors liken the release of their newest novel to birthing a child. You spent endless amounts of time with your story, getting to know it, nurturing and caring for it, coming to love it, before anyone else ever meets it. It is YOURS until that day that you give it to your readers and hope that they will love it the way that you do.

Today I am introducing the world to Bittersweet Junction. It is a standalone, New Adult Contemporary Romance novel that hopefully strikes the same chord with readers that it struck with me. There are some smexy parts to be sure, but most of the story is the slow burn that builds between the main characters, Julia and Ben. I really tried to make sure that I did their history together justice because it plays such a crucial part of their romance.

Because I’m hoping that Bittersweet Junction will find its way into everyone’s hands sooner rather than later, I am releasing it for a limited time at the special launch price of $0.99.

If you’re ready for a small town, second chance romance with a HEA then I invite you to check out Bittersweet Junction for yourself.

Happy Reading!

Cover Reveal: Vigil by V.J. Chambers

I read this blurb and immediately thought “Yes, this is a book I want to read.”   Unfortunately, we just get the cover for now. Let’s all drool accordingly, and then I’ll let you know when you can scoop this one up!

Super rich. Super Damaged. Super Sexy.

Vigil: A Billionaire Superhero Romance

by V. J. Chambers

When newspaper intern Cecily Kane kisses a masked vigilante, she doesn’t realize she’s plunging headlong into a relationship with two separate identities.

As Vigil, he is dark, sensuous, and irresistible. His touch skyrockets her to heights of pleasure. As Callum Rutherford, he is a billionaire playboy—arrogant, cold, and untouchable. She looks good on his arm, but without his mask, he holds her at arm’s length.

Sex with a masked man. Dinner with a rich sophisticate. A fractured relationship with a complicated man.

Deep down, he is broken, twisted in some dark, hidden way. Some way he won’t reveal to her. She only knows that it is somehow connected to his obsession with The Phantom, the costumed villain whose murder spree has rocked the city.

She must unravel Vigil’s secrets. To make him whole. And to stop The Phantom.

Bittersweet Junction Gets a Release Date: July 15th, 2013


Since releasing my short stories in early 2013, the idea for a full-length novel has been percolating in my brain. After several false starts, the characters of Bittersweet Junction took over and the story flowed from my fingertips. I can’t wait for you to meet Julia and Ben! These two had a false start of their own, but now have a second chance at romance.

Here’s the blurb:

Best friends once, lovers never, yet an attraction that can’t be ignored.

Five years ago, Julia Bell walked away from her life the moment her high school diploma was in her hand. She left her family and friends behind to start over and escape the chokehold of small town life in Benton Hill. But an urgent call from her little sister brings Julia back to her hometown wholly unprepared for what awaits her.

Ben Miller was always the nice guy. Just before high school graduation, he stepped out of that role hoping to capture the heart of the woman he loved. Instead, in quick succession he lost the girl, and the future he worked so hard to achieve.

Even though Julia and Ben are drawn to each other, echoes of the past block them at every turn. Secrets are exposed, and reality needs to be dealt with if they can ever hope to move past the bittersweet junction that ripped them apart.

Bittersweet Junction will be available on July 15th. Want a release day notification? Text “IVYSBOOKS” to 22828 now!

‘A Heart To Rescue’ Gets a Makeover


One of the things I love about my job is that I get to approve all the creative elements of my books. That means that I get to experiment with things like the cover and blurb whenever I want so that (hopefully) they are constantly getting better. A Heart to Rescue was my first foray into romance writing, and so when I released the story in January I crafted my own cover for it.

As time has gone on, that little story has far exceeded my expectations. I have been meaning to update the cover for quite awhile, but haven’t had time to focus on it. As I was trolling one of the many sites that I visit that offer premade covers, I found one that just blew me away. It was perfect for the story, and therefore I had to have it. The couple on this cover are Mel and Nate. I couldn’t be more pleased.

In addition to a fancy new look, A Heart to Rescue is going up for sale on iTunes and Kobo. Hopefully it will find its way into even more readers hands that way. I hope you love the new look as much as I do!
