Is it too late to say Happy New Year? I think it might be, but I'm saying it anyway because I've been so busy working on my upcoming release that I completely forgot to wish you all the best in 2024!
So I'm doing it now: Happy New Year! I wish you and yours all the best in 2024, which includes love, friendship, and of course, books that make you snort coffee out of your nose.
Speaking of snort-laughing, I am SO UNBELIEVABLY FREAKING JACKED to be sharing this news with you today. My proofreading team is just finishing the final polishing on what I'm pretty sure is my best book yet.
Cocky, I know. But I also think it may be true. According to Melissa, my amazing PA, editor, and wonderful friend, who has read everything I've ever written, this one is the bee's knees. As diplomatic as Melissa is, I've come to know the difference between a book that she thinks is good and one that she freaking loves. And this book is in the second group. She literally wrote me to say, "I laughed, I cried. It was better than Cats."
I also loved this one so much, I found myself rereading THE ENTIRE thing over and over even though I'm insanely busy and was just supposed to be popping through to make a few quick changes. (Plus, I already know how it ends.)
Anyway, here's a little about it in this edition's segment of....
REALLY BIG BOOK NEWS
Love just might be the final frontier…
S.E.T.I. researcher, Gwen Fox, is a woman on a mission—to answer the cosmic question of the ages: Are we alone?
Along with her work family, Gwen is perfectly happy spending her days listening for extraterrestrial signals— until the worst happens. They get word that they’re about to be shut down by Ty Sterling, their billionaire backer whose heart is as cold as interstellar space. About to lose everything, Gwen has no choice but to travel to Peru to change his mind.
Armed only with scientific zeal and optimism, Gwen faces off against Ty, who just might be the most stubborn, cynical man in the galaxy. As the tension between the pair builds, so does the undeniable chemistry that neither of them saw coming. Against the breathtaking backdrop of the Peruvian jungle, the space between enemies and lovers begins to collapse.
Will Gwen and Ty discover that together they form a supernova of passion? Or will their budding relationship crash and burn on impact?
*** The Space Between Us is a swoony, adventure-filled, delightfully funny tale of a woman who will do anything to save her job and the stubborn billionaire who dared to get in her way. It’s a standalone rom-com with a little more spice than a regular Melanie Summers book.
*** WHAT TO EXPECT:
Enemies to lovers
Adventure, romantic settings, and a little danger
Forced Proximity/Only one tent
A secret cinnamon roll hero
Loads of banter, awkward moments, and delicious tension
