Synopsis: 

Cassie’s been through hell and had her world turned upside down. After months of misery, she’s finally trying to pull herself out of the dark hole she’s been in.

One night out.

That’s all she wants.

One night to forget.

To relax.

To feel free.

One chance meeting.

That’s all it was.

A smile.

A cheeky greeting.

An innocent drink.

After everything that’s happened to her, Cassie doesn’t believe in fate.  She does believe everything happens for a reason.

There has to be a reason why she met him on this night. Nothing happens by chance. Besides, nobody can be that unlucky twice in life.

Book Updates

Hey everyone 🙂

I know it’s been a while, so I wanted to update you on what I’ve been working on since Silenced released.  I hope you’ll all be happy to know that I have three releases planned this year.  I just purchased my first cover for the first book and I’m looking for the the other covers that will hopefully fall into place.

So, the first book is called A Man Betrayed (A Quinn Winters Novel) Book 3 in the series.  This will also be a standalone, just like the other two.  In Silenced you got a little taste of Carter, well this book is all his.  You’re going to learn his story, why he’s so special and what made him the way he is today.  It’s going to be intense and nonstop.  You can add it to your to-be-read today, just click here and it will take you to Goodreads.

The second book is called From Love to Ashes.  It’s just a random standalone book, that I’ve been handwriting.  I have had my eye on this particular cover for quite some time and as I’ve been writing this particular story, I realized it was perfect for it.  It actually had a different title at first, but this title is just perfect.  I cannot wait to share this cover and story.  This is the story of Cassie and Colt.  She’s been through some crazy crap and when she’s finally feeling brave and hopeful she meets Colt.  He’s too good to be true, she can see it from the start, but there’s no way the universe would let her get fucked over twice, right?  You’ll just have to wait and see.  You can add it to your to-be-read on Goodreads, here.

The third book is called Addict.  I love this book and I’m not sure why it touches something inside of me.  It touches on addiction and two best friends and how their life paths have changed.  They are still friends, but can their friendship survive lies, glam and addiction?  I cannot wait to share this one as well.  It is also a standalone read.  You can add it to your to-be-read on Goodreads, here.

That’s what I have coming up this year.  I’m hoping to have them all out by December.  I have my timeline in my head, but I’m not going to put out dates, until I’m certain of what they will be.  I hate disappointing people, so am going to keep them close to the chest for now.  But, keep checking back and be sure to check the “Coming Soon” tab for all the books.  For any of my new releases, be sure to check the “Book Info” tab.

That’s it for now.  Remember to smile and share the love.  I’ll be back soon with more.  April is going to be a fun month just to chat TV and movies, so be sure to come back and say hi.

Love, Ivy

Reflections

This past weekend was my first book signing that I attended.  I’ll be honest, on the drive up I had plenty of time to freak myself out and I did.   But, I managed to keep kind of calm at least outwardly.  I realized while driving, I had forgotten all my toiletries, so had to make a stop to get those, but overall didn’t forget anything else, so was pretty proud of myself, haha.  I have a checklist for packing usually, but I was so worried about forgetting book stuff, I forgot about the stuff I needed for me, LoL.   When I got there, I went and found something to eat and just hung out for a bit.  People were still trickling in, so it was a good opportunity to chat with people online and just rest up.

The next morning, was full speed ahead.  I got my 80’s outfit for the party and just started chatting people up.  From there the weekend is honestly a whirlwind of fun and good times.  I met so many amazing authors and readers.  Internally, I was so worried about not fitting in or not being good enough, but everyone I talked to was so nice and I made so many new friends.

Three days later and I’m still on a book high, I’m excited about writing again and I cannot wait to share Silenced the next Quinn Winters book with all of you.

It’s been a while…

Hello again,

It’s been a while since I’ve chatted with you.  Don’t you hate when life and work get in the way of what you really want to be doing?  Let me update you on things.  You know I’ve put out another book, A Killer Past (A Quinn Winters Novel), well, I’m also over six chapters into the next Quinn Winters book.

I’ve also been busy getting ready for Rebels & Readers that is coming up in November.  I’ve started purchasing swag, my banner is being made, I’ve got some stuff for my table coming in and after the Amazon buying Createspace bs… I’m working on purchasing more books.  I’m very, very excited about this signing, as it’s my first signing!  I’m looking forward to meeting new authors and readers and experiencing another part of this life.

One thing I’ve been struggling with is time management.  I am working full-time and then some, trying to spend time with the man and my pups and still trying to write when I should be sleeping, haha.  Once I can get my schedule down, I know I can make this work, it’s just a matter of work actually being normal, the words coming regularly and things going as planned.  Sounds simple enough, right? Haha.

I think that’s everything for now.  I’ll keep you posted as things get closer to the event!

Love, Ivy

Two Days Until Release Day

There are only two days left until this book releases.  I am SO excited, but I’m also kind of terrified.  Like, to the point I didn’t give this book to anyone.  I am ready for the fallout of it, but I think the fear is two-fold.  The first part is not having released something in so long and the other part is that it’s something very different than what I usually write.  Yes, it has romance in it and yes it is a standalone, but it’s on a completely separate path then what people are used to with me.  I like that I can surprise people with what I write.  I like that I write what is in my head and what I want to write, but it is also terrifying.

I’m proud of what I’ve written, but there is always the worry and anxiety when I release a book, because every time I put something out, I’m putting a little piece of myself out into the world.

I’m not sure if that makes sense, if any of this makes sense, ha.  As release day gets close, I tend to babble.  I get anxious and just ramble about everything in my head.  At any rate, I’m VERY excited for everyone to read this book.  As the days tick off, I’ll be waiting anxiously and probably making more swag, hehe.

I’m also having a release day party on Facebook, you can find the link to the event, here. Come play, it will be fun.  Now, I’m going to go worry/think/be excited in my head, ha!  Have a wonderful rest of your day <3

Love, Ivy

Agent Quinn Winters has worked hard to get where she is today. She is an elite FBI profiler, as well as a submissive. She tries to balance the two, but through the years, she’s always put her career first. Except, when it comes to her best friend Agent Willow Mavros. They have been best friends since college and know each other better than anyone else.

A new case has come across Agent Winters and her team’s desk. A case that threatens to break them all. As she and her team get deeper into the case, every decision she makes will not only affect her career but her submissive lifestyle as well.

If she can’t figure out who the killer is in time, she could lose one of her teammates forever.

Excerpt  – Copyright Ivy Love 2018

Killer:

An unconscious girl sits tied to a lone chair in the middle of an empty room, her dark hair matted to her face as she awaits a fate not even she realizes she has been chosen for.

I watch from the corner, waiting for her to regain consciousness. I’ve done this enough now to know just the right amount of drug to use so I don’t get bored waiting for my new friend to wake up. I’m not sure which is more of a thrill at this point. The actual kill or the calling card I leave for my new friend, Agent Winters. I enjoy watching these idiots run around trying to connect the dots and failing. Then they had to call her. Now, I get to watch her struggle to connect the dots. I don’t take pleasure in seeing her struggle, but it’s an important piece of the puzzle. She isn’t dumb, she just can’t see the big picture, yet. But she will… and when she does. It will be something she’ll never forget. I can’t wait.

My new friend is stirring now. The fun is about to begin. I love watching them wake up, looking around, trying to figure out where they are. The confusion evident on their faces. Watching them as their confusion turns to terror when they realize they’re bound and unable to move. It brings me an indescribable thrill. I watch as her eyes dart around the room widening as she realizes her situation. I always wonder what is going through their minds in this moment. I’ve asked, but they never answer me. They just beg and plead for their worthless lives.

I can feel the excitement beginning to bubble inside me. It’s almost time to reveal myself. Not yet though, she’s not ready. She’s not afraid enough. There’s a moment when I can feel their fear in the room. When that moment happens, that’s when I show myself. It’s when I feel ready, because their fear is inside me, it’s as if I can feel it running through my veins.

I can hear her breaths quickening, her muffled cries getting louder and the chair scraping against the concrete floor.

It’s time.

It’s been a while

Hi everyone!

I’m sorry it’s been a while, real life came in and decided to take over as it does sometimes.  But, I’m still here.  Since I’ve been gone, I’ve had the chance to see my cover and it’s AMAZING! I love it and can’t wait to share it on the 28th!  I’ve also been to my sisters graduation and my first Harry Styles concert as well, haha. It’s been an interesting few weeks.

Now I’m in the home stretch of putting this book together and I’m trying to spend every minute I can into it, making it perfect.  I haven’t put out a book in such a long time, my nerves are getting the best of me.  But, I’ll be ready!

This week, is edits/re-writes and teaser pull-outs.  I’m so excited!  It’s going to be a good week 🙂

Alright I’m off to get work done, so I can get writing done.  Have a wonderful day!

Love, Ivy.
