The final installment in the Wishes Series "Granting Wishes" is here!
If you haven't picked up the series yet, now is the time to do it! A Million Wishes and Reflecting On Wishes are on sale for only $0.99 each!

Blurb:
The conclusion of the Wishes series is the story of twins, Delilah and Dominic Cane. Will their journey in finding love end in happily ever after’s for them both?
Delilah and Jake- Delilah is ready for love with her stubborn cowboy, but will Jake’s past continue haunting him and prevent him from moving forward with the woman who holds the key to his hardened heart?
Dominic and Chelsea- Chelsea’s heart has always ached for Dominic's love, but he’s never been ready to settle down. Can two friends that grew up together move past the friend phase, or will his ex-girlfriend ruin their chances when she comes back to town?
Excerpt:
The wedding had been a small affair with close friends and family, but her mom had invited Jake and his adorable little girl Roxy since they had been working closely with him for the last several months in the renovations of Kringle Farms. Lilah knew her mom did it because apparently everyone knew she had a crush on Jake and it was her feeble attempt at throwing them together again. That was such a waste since he went out of his way to avoid her completely. In fact, he probably wouldn’t have even spoken to her if sweet, little Roxy hadn’t made a beeline for her as soon as she saw her. The big jerk may not feel the same way about her as she did him, but she certainly had a friend in Roxy. The girl was an absolute delight. She definitely had more personality than her father. That was for sure.
Scrolling through her messages, Lilah rested her head on the edge of the tub. It became clear that was a bad decision when her phone beeped and a picture of Mr. Tall Blond and Brooding popped up. Good Lord, have mercy! Even with that stern look on his face he was still sexy as hell. It was a wonder she didn’t drop her phone in the water. It was bad enough her mind went south when she realized she was looking at him while she was in the tub, naked and thinking about him. Her skin flushed like she’d been caught with her hand in the proverbial cookie jar.
Sitting up straight, Lilah slid the green bar over on her phone to open the text. It took a moment for her figure out she was getting lightheaded because she was holding her breath. Letting it out in whoosh, she read something that sent her heart thumping.
Saturday December 21st from 4pm-8pm EST we're having a release party on Facebook with many prizes and lots of fun! Join in the fun at the Release Party! The event is hosted by Reading by the Book.

This week is a direct continuation. :)

Jake- Where you at? Disappeared on me. :-/

He noticed she was gone. Lilah gave a whoop and fist pumped like she was at the club.

Lilah- I’m upstairs. In the tub.
Jake- …naked?
Lilah- …don’t you get naked before getting in the tub?

Was this really happening? Lilah pinched herself to make sure she hadn’t fallen asleep in the tub and was simply having the best dream ever. “Ouch!” Holy crap, it was really happening!

Jake- Showers. Not tub. Very naked.
Lilah- Good to know. Try a bath some time. Again, very naked!
Jake- …dammit.
Lilah- What?
Jake- You’re naked.
Lilah- And?
Jake- I’m jealous of your tub.
Lilah- Oh… ;-)

They had flirted a few times before, even shared one really hot kiss that ended in disaster. But this was...different. Different because her heart had been aching the entire day because he’d been ignoring her. Avoiding her, even. It was like when she was out at his farm, helping with the renovations and he treated her like she was a nuisance. Yet she still kept going back, volunteering, spending time with Roxy. Other times he was sweet as pie, asking her opinion on things, praising her for her hard work and knowledge. And sometimes, well…sometimes he even looked at her like he wanted her. Those times were the best.

Jake- Coming back?
Lilah- Wasn’t planning on it. Miss me?
Jake- Maybe…
Lilah- Shouldn’t have ignored me all day. :-(
Jake- *sigh*
Jake- Wasn’t ignoring.
Lilah- Then what’s your problem with me?
Jake- Not a problem with you.
Lilah- You were being a jerk to me…Again! :-(
Jake- Never mind. Gonna head home. Get the kiddo in bed.
Lilah- Call me later?
Jake- You looked gorgeous today.
Lilah- Aww, thank you!
Lilah- You were handsome too. As always.

When he didn’t reply, Lilah figured he was getting Roxy and saying his goodbyes. But a half hour later she still hadn’t heard anything and she was tired of waiting. Once she was out of the tub and wrapped in a towel, she texted him again.

Lilah- You okay?
Jake- Ya. Home now. Roxy getting pj’s on.
Lilah- Give her a kiss for me…k?
Jake- What about for me?

This time, Lilah did drop her phone. Thank goodness it was on her rug instead of the tile floor. It wouldn’t serve her well to not finish this conversation this very moment.

Lilah- What about you?
Jake- Giving kisses to my kid but not me?
Lilah- Didn’t think you ever wanted to kiss me again.
Jake- …bullshit.
Lilah- Then why don’t you?
Jake- Pick you up, fifteen minutes.
Lilah- …um. Okay.

Teaser Tuesday ~ Granting Wishes

Granting Wishes Unedited Teaser © DeAnna Felthauser July 2013

The wedding had turned out beautiful. It was a fairytale from start to finish. Angel had been a stunning bride and Delilah had never seen her brother Dakota so overjoyed. It was perfect. She was happy for them, truly.
Why then, did she feel like utter crap right now? Something must be wrong with the workings of her brain to be feeling so completely lonely in a house full of people that she loved.
It was getting late and Lilah couldn’t stand another minute of being in her uncomfortable high heels and the buttercup yellow dress she’d worn to the wedding. Heading upstairs to her room, she made sure she avoided the stairs in the foyer, and instead she chose to go out the back door and take the stairs from the deck that led to her brother Dominic’s room. From there she kicked off her heels and carried them in her hand as she padded along on the plush carpeting to her room. The softness felt like heaven on her sore feet.
Once she was sequestered in her room, Lilah unzipped her dress and let it pool at her bare feet, quickly shedding her undergarments and left them lay where they fell as she walked into her bathroom. It was time for a hot bath with a generous drizzle of lavender oil to soothe the ache in her feet, and her heart.
Lilah once asked her momma after her first heartbreak at the age of fifteen why boys were so dumb. Her mom had replied, “Because when they are around girls, they suffer from blood loss to the brain and only idiotic things come out of their mouths. We’ve all been through it, sugar, and you’ll make it through it too. More than once…”
At the time, Lilah had laughed and felt better knowing that she wasn’t the only one to suffer through the stupidity of an immature boy. Of course, back then she assumed that grown men would somehow be smarter. Boy was she wrong.
Stupid Jake Kringle.
Lilah made a sound of disgust and turned off her bath water, grabbing her cell phone before she eased down into the tub of hot, fragrant water.

Update & Top 10

Hello lovelies! Gosh, it's been forever since I've blogged. Life is busy and things get away from me sometimes. So, to make it up to you, I figured I'd share a short update and post a Top 10 of the music on my current playlist while I'm writing lately.

Reviews are love... ;-)




Reflecting On Wishes is only on Amazon at this point in time but by end of May it will be available in other venues and hopefully in paperback as well. *crosses fingers*




If you are a blogger/reviewer and would like to review either book and post your reviews on Amazon, comment here or message me on Facebook or by email: felthauserdeanna@yahoo.com and I will send you a free e-copy.

I've currently been writing in a different genre and I'm crazy in love with it. Some of you have already seen the cover for my next novel, Love You To Death. It's a Paranormal Romance about a vampire, Devon, who's on the brink of losing his humanity, until he meets Gia, a lonely bartender with nothing lose and everything to gain.


My Top 10 that I can't get enough of while writing their story...

  1. Stone Sour - Bother
  2. Stone Sour - Through the Glass
  3. Everlast - What Its Like
  4. Everlast - Put Me On
  5. Thriving Ivory - Angels On the Moon
  6. Nina Nesbitt - Just Before Goodbye
  7. Sucker Punch Soundtrack - Sweet Dreams  (actually listen to the entire soundtrack often!)
  8. Nine Inch Nails - Meet Your Master
  9. Dead Can Dance - Anastasis
  10. Adam Lambert - Underneath
Wow, it was hard narrowing it down to ten! But there you have it. My eclectic taste. :-)
Have a beautiful day...and may all your Wishes come true!

By the way, just a random bit of info - I adore these two together.
