I hope your summer is off to a great start. My summer has kicked into high gear. In addition to planning my upcoming March wedding….hope you’ve enjoyed all my wedding teaser posts on Facebook, I have released two books to whet your appetite while you’re on vacation, chilling on the beach or at home for a staycation.

In June, my 21st book Cappuccino Kisses for Kimani Romance debuted to great reviews. If you haven’t picked up your copy of the Seattle Drayson’s Sprinkled with Love book, purchase your copy on Amazon http://bit.ly/capkisses, Barnes and Noble, Walmart or wherever books are sold.

What to know more? Here’s a synopsis:

The sweetest merger of all… Triple chocolate cupcakes can help get a girl through the tough times—especially after Mariah Drayson’s dream marriage ends in heartbreak. Now the gifted baker has been handed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: running the Seattle branch of her family’s legendary Chicago patisserie. The competition is stiff. Until high-end coffee importer Everett Myers comes up with a sinfully tempting proposition. 

The finest ingredients. Limited distribution. Everett knows the secrets of success. Joining forces with the alluring pastry chef is making the millionaire widower believe in second chances. And when Mariah unveils her secret weapon—a decadent new dessert—he knows they’re a winning team. But the single father can’t coast on sugarcoated fantasies. Is Mariah prepared to reveal the secret that could cost her a future with Everett?

Hot off the press, today I’ve released Unchained Hearts, a follow-up to my popular Harts of Arizona series. Below is a snippet of the first book in my Hart sisters’ trilogy: Still smarting over her divorce and steadily gaining weight, full-figured New Orleans’s restaurateur London Hart never expects to fall hard for ex-Special Forces officer Chase Tanner. Chase is just as reluctant to fall in love with the chestnut beauty after finding his ex-wife cheated with his best friend while he was deployed. But the chemistry between the couple is too hard to ignore. Soon they’re embarking on a passionate affair. But Chase is suffering from PTSD and refuses to get help. Can London help free Chase of his demons and show him love is even better the second time around?

While you’re devouring those books, I’ve finished up editing my January 2017 Kimani Romance release Taming her Tycoon. This is the first book in a duo series titled Knights of Los Angeles. Corporate raider Lucius Knight is desperate to learn about his paternity but not as much as he wants Naomi Brooks and her organic products company. Can he convince her that a liaison can be mutually beneficial in and out of the bedroom?

Never one to rest on my laurels, this summer I’m writing a new Kimani romance continuity trilogy titled Miami Seduction. I’ll team up with two of your favorite Kimani authors Sherelle Green and Pamela Yaye to give you a peek into the Millionaire Moguls of Miami. Each of us will write a book in the series, so you’ll get a different take from each author. That’s all I’m going to tease you with for now, but expect Miami Seduction, the first book in the series come June 2017.

What am I going to give you in the meantime until 2017? My goal is to finish up Chasing Hearts, the second book in the Hart sisters’ trilogy focusing on Bree Hart’s story and deliver it to your Kindle, Nook, IPad or whatever device you prefer sometime November or December 2016. Don’t hold me to an exact date. With planning a wedding, working full-time and writing those great romances you expect of me, it’s coming. Hold tight…

Well, that’s all I have for now folks. Stay tuned for another edition in the world of YSJ.

Lots of Love,

Yahrah St. John
