About Boiling Point:

Falling for a con man is the most dangerous game of all…

Con artist Austin Shaw’s been in disguise so long he’s not sure where his fake identities end and he begins. Now that he’s been strong-armed into working for a specialized undercover unit working with the Chicago police—criminals with unique “skills”—the last thing he needs is to risk his iron control. Especially when it comes to a certain stunningly sexy hacker who tempts him with every look of disdain.

Polly Banks will never, ever trust a con man. On the trail of a ruthless crook who destroyed the only family she’s ever known, Polly is unnerved by the shadow who follows her every move. The one who makes her pulse pound and breath short with lust. Austin. He’s infuriating, enigmatic, and pure sex appeal, and she’s determined to resist him.

But an untrustworthy man of disguise can become anyone he wants…including a man that Polly must trust if she’s to escape their dangerous game alive.

 About Tessa Bailey: Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention. She now lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband of seven years and three-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

But when she sacrifices her own life for a sexy Texan in a catastrophic plane crash, she has no idea the consequences will be so great. When the mysterious Ice comes into Turner Alcott’s life, he knows she’s the one. If he wants to win her heart, Turner must teach Ice how to forgive herself, and prove that love is the ultimate sacrifice.
Book Two: The Last Awakening
Ex-soldier Greyson Meadows desperately wants to be freed from the nightmares and guilt that haunt him. Arabella’s been gifted her mortality and long-gone voodoo magic. She must save her next soul within a week without using magic, or she’ll lose her power forever. When Greyson is confronted by a waif of a woman who forces him to face the truth about his past, he runs fast and hard. Now one will have to give up everything so the other can have peace, but will love’s magic withstand the loss?
Book Three: The Last Beginning
Though she’s always hated being a phoenix, Sadie has to admit immortality has its advantages. She’s seen and done more in the last 150 years than she’d ever dreamed of, but she can’t get past the fact that Osiris has done nothing but manipulate her and her fellow phoenixes. Sun god Osiris is ashamed of his role as ruler of the Underworld, but unless he can figure out how to save Sadie, that’s exactly where she’s going to end up. Permanently. He’ll help her the only way he can—even if it means she’ll hate him forever.

 

I Sold Locked In Stone!

Yup, I’ve been teasing this for a while, that I had something in the works with Locked in Stone, the first book in my Hearts of Stone series. And as of yesterday (hey, gimme a break, I have a family to tend and a former house to clean at the moment), I could finally announce the sale!

Here’s the banner for the publisher I sold to!

covetbannerYup, you got that right, peeps! I totally sold my gargoyle book to the might that is Entangled! Now, I’m sure y’all want the story behind this, so…let’s turn the clock back and take a look at what brought me to this wondrous news. This is a very drawn-out story, so get some coffee or tea, and sit back for the ride.

Last year in August, you may remember I blogged about having nerves about pitching directly to an editor. Well, that editor was Ms. Kerri-Leigh Grady, the now-editor of the Edge and a couple other lines at Entangled (at that point it was Flirt & Flaunt). I showed up, ready to bribe her into having pity on me and not laughing at my presentation by presenting her with chocolate (everyone knows editors like chocolate, right?).

Yeah, well, except apparently Ms. Awesome Grady has allergies. Sigh. So no chocolate bribery for me. However, it did give me a story to break the ice and a momentary giggle. So I pitched (at that time, Locked wasn’t completed…I was pitching since I was published and they took proposals). She wanted the full, but then said to send what I had. I sent it that Tuesday and the waiting began.

A month later I got a request from Candace Super-Wonderful-Awesome Editor/Author Havens for the full. So I raced to finish it and submitted the full to her October 5. And the waiting began anew.

November passed, no word.

December passed, no word though there were a few encouraging emails back and forth with both Candace and Meredith.

January 2, just after midnight, Candace emailed asking if I’d consider chopping it by about 10k and punching up the romance so it would fit the Covet line rather than Select. Umm, let’s see…have the publisher of my dreams say yes to me and agree to make the cuts, or say “nope” and watch my Entangled dreams die for the moment. I said yes. She said she’d take it to the acquisitions board. And the waiting began once more.

Finally, January 27, I got the word. Acquisitions said yes. I got the contract. Uber-awesome stupendous agent Marisa offered to look at the contract (see my post when I got her as an agent for how long we’ve been friends) and give me pointers. Uh…my dream agent offering to advise on my contract? Heck yeah! So she had some thoughts. Then…in a moment of blinding, blazing glory…she offered representation and to negotiate the contract for me.

SCORE! Agent and Contract offers in 24 hours.

And then the negotiations began. And waiting once more commenced.

And then the most glorious email ever appeared in my inbox yesterday morning (May 6). My contract. To sign. With Entangled!!!

And I did.

I announced on Facebook last night, got the emails welcoming me to Entangled when I got up this morning…and here we are.

That’s how I became a new member of the incredible Entangled team.

Thank you for listening. Now I’m off to work. Have a great day everyone!
