Coming Soon: Acquiring Trouble

Coming January 18th!
 Acquiring Trouble is the Third book in the Bluegrass Brothers Series.

As a natural born leader, Miles Davies accomplishes anything he puts his mind to. Upon returning home from his special forces duties, he has become the strong foundation of the Davies family and his company. But that strong foundation is about to get rocked in a big way by the one woman that always left him fascinated and infuriated.

Keeneston’s notorious bad girl is back! Morgan Hamilton’s life ended and began on her high school graduation night when she left Keeneston with no plan to ever return. As a self-made businesswoman, Morgan is always looking for her next victory. Little did she know that next victory would involve acquiring the company that belonged to the one man she always wanted for herself.

With their careers and lives on the line, will Miles and Morgan choose love or ambition?

Author Interview: Bella Andre

1. When is your next new release due out?

I just released Come A Little Bit Closer!

2. Tell us about the new release you have coming out? Is it part of one of your series?

Come A Little Bit Closer is the seventh book in my Sullivan Family series and features Smith Sullivan, a famous actor in the middle of the most important movie of his career when he's distracted by the self-possessed and utterly sexy Valentina Landan – the sister and manager of his co-star.

3. You write a lot of different series. The Sullivan Family, which your previous release, Let Me Be the One, hit the New York Times and USA Today Best-Seller's list! The Bad Boys of Football, Hotshot Firefighters and the Take Me Series. What is your favorite thing about each series? 

I love how to revisit characters that we've already seen fall in love. With a series, we can get continual glimpses of their happily ever after – what they're up to, whether they have children. 

4. If you were to venture outside of contemporary romance genre and begin a completely new series, what genre what it be?

Honestly, I love romance so much I can't imagine writing something else!  The farthest I'd veer would probably be the “New Adult” genre where the characters are in their late teens and early twenties vs. 20s/30s like my current romances.

5. What one thing can you not live without while you are writing?

I have little rituals that keep me sane. I take a daily hike, love to swim, drink endless bottles of San Pelligrino and also eat these delicious Trader Joe mint chocolate cookies. I also listen to a handful of songs on repeat while I write my books.

6. What was the last book by another author that you read?

The Marriage Bargain by Jennifer Probst. Love her!

7. What is the craziest thing you've done when coming up with an idea or during research for a book?

My “crazy” probably has less to do with research and more to do with how much time I spent obsessing over my Sullivans. :) It's pretty much an every-waking-hour situation while I'm writing a book...which is all the time!

 Note from Bella:

Thank you so much to everyone who has been reading – and loving – my Sullivans! I absolutely love hearing from all of you, so please come find me on my website at and drop me a note. :) Bella

Thanks so much for taking time to visit with me today. It’s been a lot of fun!! 

Thank you! I loved being here.
~ Bella Andre

Attention Barnes & Noble Readers!

Season's Greetings!

I am in the middle of a new release for a novella that was meant to be free for everyone.  Unfortunately,  I have encountered ongoing delays with the distributor for Barnes & Noble.  I was able to load directly to Barnes & Noble, HOWEVER I am not able to list the book for free as I had intended.  I believe the free book will eventually be pushed through, but I have no idea when this will happen.

In the meantime, if you are anxious to read the short story on all of your favorite characters from the Bluegrass Series, you are welcome to pick it up on Nook for $0.99.  I really hate that you have to pay for your own gift, but I want to be sure that everyone has a chance to read it before Christmas.  I will keep facebook, twitter, and this blog updated when the book lists for free on Nook.

You can click below for the link directly to Barnes & Noble's webpage for Secret Santa, A Bluegrass Series Novella.

I hope you enjoy!

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway

The holidays are here and I'm ready to spread the cheer with plenty of giveaways! This promotion is running on facebook only, so make sure you sign up or find a friend who has a facebook account and you all can share the prizes! There are 12 chances to win and I will also let you know of other giveaways by authors such as Melody Anne and Ruth Cardello!  Here are the rules:

Rules of 12 Days of Christmas

There will be twelve separate contests, one held each day with a single winner.  The contest will begin on December 1st and run through December 12th.  I will post at 10:00 pm United States Eastern Time Zone the day before to begin each contest and the contest will close at 10:00 pm United States Eastern Time Zone the following day.  The winner for each day will be announced shortly after 10:00 pm each day.  Each day will feature different prizes and the prize will be announced in that day’s post. They will range from free e-Books, signed books, giftcards and more!  No contest will be first come, first win since we have people participating from around the world.

In order to enter each contest, you must post in that day’s comment thread on Facebook.  Some days will feature trivia or fun challenges of some sort where only the correct answers will be entered in the drawing. Some contests will only require you to comment and what you comment will not determine if you win or not.  Commenting will give you one entry into that day’s contest.  If you share the contest on Facebook, then you will be given an additional entry for that day regardless of the contest type.  Everyone is encouraged to enter both ways on each of the twelve days of contests.

There are many wonderful authors contributing to this event and I encourage each of you to visit their facebook page to check them out.  This contest is my way of saying THANK YOU to each of you.  You have made this an incredible year for me and I am very grateful.  Please have fun and good luck!

Facebook is in no way a sponsor of or a participant of this giveaway and is hereby released by every participant of any liability.
