VILLAIN: Blog Tour Kick Off!

I can’t believe the VILLAIN tour is here already! If you don’t already know, I’m publishing the companion novella to my 2015 NYT bestelling romance HERO. VILLAIN is secondary characters Henry and Nadia’s story. The Review & Excerpt tour for the novella kicks off today and I’m so thrilled to see such great reviews coming in for their sexy, emotional story. Check out the VILLAIN tour date and stops below!
