Cover Reveal! Bidding on the Billionaire by JM Stewart

Bidding on the Billionaire
Seattle Bachelors Series Book 1
Releasing March 1



Available for pre-order: 

Whoop! I finally got the okay from my editor to share my gorgeous new cover. I have to admit I love it. When I filled out the cover art questionnaire, they always ask for descriptions of characters, what they wear, what covers you like, etc, but you never know what you're actually going to end up with. But I adore this one. This fits the series perfectly and it's exactly what I hoped for. Two thumbs for the cover artists at Forever Yours!

I don't have a blurb I can share yet. But I will tease you with the tagline I sent in when we originally started querying publishers (aka this is completely unofficial): The rules? Two weeks, no emotions, just sex.

I can also tell you that this book is an opposites attract story and the series revolves around a high-end bachelor auction. It's my first ever novel into the land of erotic romance.

Oh, and I'm currently doing first round edits for book 2, which has officially been titled Winning the Billionaire, which releases June 14. Hopefully, we'll see the cover for the one soon as well, as I sent the cover art questionnaire in a couple of weeks ago.

I'd love to know what you think of the cover!

New Year's Resolutions Blog Hop #giveaway


New Year's resolutions...do you make them? I usually don't, because I usually make very lofty goals that I'd never achieve. So I do really well...for about 2 days. Then they slowly fade. lol

This year, mine are simple, because they're things I'm trying to do anyway. So New Year's is just a fresh start to reaffirm them.

  1. Make time to read more. Being an author, the hours are long and they never really end. I can get caught up in the "job" and forget to take time to do the things I enjoy. I haven't been reading as much as I should.
  2. Eat better -- aka stop caving and eating so much junk. Those cookies, man, they have it in for me. They jump into my basket, I tell you! ;)
  3. Stay positive. I have PTSD, which amounts to high anxiety and depression. My goal is to stop allowing negative thoughts to take root and keep a positive outlook. It changes my whole mindset, so this one's important to me. 

What about you? For a chance at $10 Amazon gift card...share your New Year's resolutions. Be sure to enter via the Rafflecopter, below, as that's where the winner will be chosen from.

Blurb

Matt Carson and Trina Lovett befriend each other during turbulent times at a young age. Over the years, their friendship strengthens building a strong, unbreakable bond. At least that is what they believe. Life choices put an ocean between them, and the depth of their bond is tested.
Under the stress of being apart, heart-wrenching events leave them plagued with doubt. Danger forces them to make irrefutable decisions about what they want from life.

Divine’s Book Trailer



Excerpt

Matt’s throat clogged, and tears burned his eyes. He waited so long, wanted her so much, he couldn’t move, couldn’t process what he saw. Didn’t know what he felt. He’d longed to pull her into his arms, hold, and kiss her until they both melted into a pile. Now that she was here, he couldn’t. Too many unanswered questions.

Moisture covered her cheeks and chin. A god-awful sound escaped her. “Matt,” she said through her hands and sobbing. “Oh, God, Matt!” But she didn’t move.

Jeez, he wanted her. “Trina,” he said again, too shocked to think of anything else. He dreamed, hoped she’d come to him, and still, in his wildest imagination, he didn’t believe the day would ever arrive. Bradley told him she was doing better. He thanked the stars every night, but he didn’t go to her. Couldn’t, not with how callously the Lovetts treated him. She had to decide what she wanted. He wouldn’t push it. No matter how much he wanted her, he wouldn’t impede on her relationship with her parents. By no means were they nice, and he questioned their motives more than once, but they were her parents. At least she had them.

“I have so much to explain, so much to tell you.”

His body zinged from the desperation in her voice and came to life. “I want to hear every word.” He couldn’t resist touching her and moved forward. His desire to reach her crashed into him with such force, any minute he’d leap and land on top of her. “But first—”

Reviews

“I truly enjoyed every minute of it. It was the kind of book that made you sorry when it was over. I immediately fell in love with Matt and Trina from the first moment I met them. You could feel their chemistry and connection, even at their young age, in every word Cait wrote. The backstory on these two characters was wonderful, emotional and heart wrenching at times.”
~Janis Frisch, Book Reviews and More

“Divine is one of those stories that warms the heart and you don't want it to end. At 13 and 14 Matt and Trina become instant friends. Matt knows deep down from the beginning there is a bond between them that can not be broken. Cait Jarrod is amazing with her writing; keeping you so interested in the next page, next chapter, next book.”

Thanksgiving: 5 Things to be Thankful For


So, Thanksgiving is tomorrow. As I sit here pondering the pumpkin pie I'm going to attempt to make from scratch tomorrow morning (cross your fingers! lol), I thought maybe I'd stop and count my blessings.

My PTSD is something that never really goes away. A friend told me she thinks of it as going into remission every once in a while. I haven't had a remission in a while. I'm caught somewhere between high anxiety and hyper awareness to hovering on the edge of depression.

What I've learned to do to counteract all of that...is to stay positive. I stop at the end of every night and thank God for all the things that went right that day. It's such a small thing, but I'm finding it changes my whole outlook.

So, here are 5 things I'm currently thankful for:

1: My husband. We've been married for...(thinking...counting...how old is the oldest?) ah yes, 19 years. What I love the most about him? He makes me laugh. It's his way of breaking tension, but it makes me forget whatever I was upset about in the first place. And yeah. It means I can't stay mad at this man. lol

2: My boys. They were raised by me and actually turned out to be good people. That amazes me. lol

3: My dogs. We have two. Tiger, the Chihuahua mix, is the "baby." She's a needy little lap dog who has to have someone to sit with. And Misty, the Lab mix, whose the sweetest dog I've ever met. She loves everybody. Well, except the UPS man and that squirrel in the tree in the backyard. lol They take me out of my head.

4: Certain friends who help whenever I ask, even though I'll probably never be able to repay them for what they've done for me. This is very cryptic, I know, but I don't want to put them on the spot. They know who they are. I love you.

5: My writing. Because there was a time when I couldn't, I'm grateful for the desire that still drives me to my computer every day. On the hard days when sales are low or I've gotten another rejection...this is what I remember.

I could probably go on, but I'll stop here. Do you count your blessings? What are you thankful for?

And of course, a very Happy Thanksgiving, from my family to yours.
