Happy Part 2 of 2018 by @JoanReeves

I survived the first half of 2018, reeling from one emergency to the next. Also reeling from one writing project to the next.

Do you have months like that where everything is an emergency and/or a "hurry up and wait" event?

Fortunately, I made all the book deadlines and survived all of the emergencies.

To celebrate, I bought a bottle of Prosecco, and Darling Hubby and I are opening it this evening.

Celebrations demand party favors so I set up a sale for both books in my ALL BRIDES ARE BEAUTIFUL series. The sale runs through July 10. Each book is only 99 cents.


Is it just a Marriage of Convenience--or something more? Something hot and sizzling between Maddie and Jake that neither can resist.

Oil heiress Madeline Quinn needs a husband by the time she turns twenty-five in order to claim her full inheritance.

Mad Maddie, as the tabloids christened her, has learned the hard way that men only see dollar signs when they look at her.

Maddie decides a marriage of convenience is the only answer.

She turns to the one man in the world she can trust, her housekeeper’s son who always treated her like a little sister when they were growing up—until one disastrous night when she acted impetuously.

Jake Becker hasn’t seen Maddie since the night she tried to seduce him. Why should he help the woman who changed the course of his life? Simple. Revenge.

Or is it something else? Something that sizzles like steam heat between Maddie and Jake that neither can resist?


Even the new release for the series, Second Chance Bride, is on sale

He was the only man she wanted—and the one man she could never have.

She left town at eighteen, wanting to leave behind all the pain and heartbreak. In Houston, she reinvented herself as wealthy, successful Constance Quinn.

The only problem is there's no room for love or relationships in her rigidly controlled existence. Now older and wiser, she's determined to find the part of herself that got lost in her transformation.

"A blonde with curves in all the right places." That's what Alex Martinez thinks when he meets Constance. When they touch, something hot and urgent passes between them. Their attraction is mutual. Their desire is palpable.

Although Constance cannot resist Alex, she's playing with fire because she has a secret that will destroy everything if it's revealed.


Now is the time to take stock of your goals and see what else you want to accomplish this year. That's what I plan to do tomorrow. Today, I'm just breathing a sigh of relief.

Joan Reeves is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Contemporary Romance.

  1. Congrats on meeting your deadlines! I need to take stock of what I need to get done in 2018. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. Hey, Karen! Hope you and your hubby are back to normal now. Yep. I'm taking stock too. July always seems to be the month I sit back, take a breath, and recharge my batteries so to speak.

  2. Congratulations! I don't think I have it in me anymore to keep up, so I'm trying to teach myself to take things as they come and don't beat myself up for falling behind. Not an easy lesson, but a necessary one.

    1. I know exactly what you mean. It's hard not to beat up on ourselves when we inevitably fall behind. I think I've been running behind for the last 2 years!

  3. Super post! I'm glad you made it through.
