I’m very excited to participate in the Apollycon Spotlight Tour and feature one of the most respected authors, Claire Contreras! I’ve read one book by her, Kaleidoscope Hearts, which I thought was a very sweet, romantic read–the perfect second-chance romance. My goal is to read more books of hers so that when we meet at Apollycon we can gab. I can’t wait to meet her! If you’re going to Apollycon and excited to meet Claire, here’s a quick interview down below to tide you over! And, if you’ve yet to read Claire Contreras, then check out her Hearts series–they’ve received great feedback.
P.S. There’s also a $50 gift card giveaway down below!
He was my older brother’s best friend.
He was never supposed to be mine.
I thought we would get it out of our system and move on.
One of us did.
One of us left.
Now he’s back, looking at me like he wants to devour me. And all those feelings I’d turned into anger are brewing into something else, something that terrifies me.
He broke my heart last time.
This time he’ll obliterate it.
This is a standalone.
They were inseparable, their love was fierce, their loyalty unwavering… or so they thought…
Torn Hearts follows Mia and Jensen’s story in the beginning. Like many of our own stories, theirs is not complete. Once I am finished posting this prequel, I will give you the title of Mia and Jensen’s full length, standalone story, along with a release date for it.
*NOTE: You don’t need to read Kaleidoscope Hearts in order to enjoy this story, as you do not need to read this story in order to enjoy Mia and Jensen’s standalone either. This is just a glimpse to their past.
I lost her. No, I didn’t lose her. I threw her away. She was my best friend. I was never supposed to fall in love with her. I was careless. She was heartbroken. I thought I was doing fine. But here she is, years later, forced to work with me, reminding me why I fell in love with her in the first place. And this time I’m going to do everything in my power to never let her go.
Most sought out divorce attorney in LA.
Soon to be ex-wife of Hollywood’s biggest star, Victor’s latest client and his boss’s daughter.
In such a high profile divorce, they can’t afford any extra drama. Luckily, neither one of them has anything to hide.
Unless you count the mind blowing sex they had…
Three times all those years ago.
As long as they leave the past where it belongs, they’ll be fine. But with her wearing those tight dresses and him giving her those heated glances, keeping their hands to themselves is proving to be more difficult than either one of them realized.
It won’t be long before the paparazzi start to smell smoke, and where there’s smoke…
Let’s get to know Claire a little better
*Use your Family Feud lightening round voice to make this even more fun. You know you have a Family Feud lightening round voice; don’t lie*:
Thing you’re most excited about for Apollycon 2017: EVERYTHING! I’m thrilled that I get to sign with this incredible group of authors and hang out with readers in my home state.

Claire doesn’t like to talk about herself. Because of this, she asked a friend of hers to write her bio. This is what she got:
Claire is caring, smart, witty, and funny as heck. Despite being a New York Times Best Selling Author of a popular contemporary romance series, Claire doesn’t read many romance novels. However, when she sits down to write, those are the ones that pour from her fingers. Much to her displeasure, we like to say she’s a romantic at heart.
She is a breast cancer survivor who lives in Miami with her good looking husband, two adorable boys, three bulldogs, and two stray cats that she refuses to admit are hers (even though they live on her porch and she continues to feed them). When she’s not writing, she’s always lost in a book (the more suspenseful, the better).
