Bad Behavior Release Date March 8th!

Hey Book Buddies,

I’m back from New Zealand, which was as beautiful as expected. I wasn’t in Christchurch during the earthquake but I was in the south island touring Dunedin, Wanaka, Queenstown, and Milford Sound. I’ll post about the trip later in the week once I get settled.

I returned home to wonderful news: Bad Behavior, the sequel to With Good Behavior, will be released on March 8th! This time the cuffs are coming off.

Grant Madsen’s got issues. He’s still battling his Mafia family and doing everything possible to keep his loved ones safe. With the cruising season coming to an end, he has to find another job soon or he’ll rejoin his father in prison. And he’s trying to convince his rebellious teenage nephew to stay away from their criminal relatives (you can imagine how that’s going). But worst of all, Grant’s parole officer has mandated that he attend therapy.

The only saving grace is that they’re couples sessions with his girlfriend, Sophie Taylor, a fellow parolee who’s struggling with a few issues of her own. Sophie desperately hopes her past with Grant’s brother won’t destroy her future with him. There’s a sleazy professor at work who revels in sexually harassing women in the psychology department. And her father still hates Grant.

Their psychologist has his work cut out for him.

When Grant’s ruthless father hints at a plot to get out of prison, Grant must use everything he’s learned in therapy and beyond to try to stop him. It’s a race against time — and a race to rescue Sophie from the Mafia’s clutches once again. But this time McSailor and Bonnie refuse to play victims. Can they break the ties that bind?

I’m very excited to unleash Book Two of The Conduct Series on the world.

And now it’s time for Meet an Author Monday Blog Hop, hosted by Lisa Sanchez.

  5. Ha ha Nicole, do you use the word \”wee\” a lot? My friend Maggie now uses it every other word! It was a wee excessive, hee hee. We were in Queenstown during the quake and didn't feel any ground movement but Maggie's boyfriend was in Dunedin and did feel a tremor.Karen, thank you! Corinne at Omnific does a beautiful job designing the covers.

  6. I’m super-psyched to read the sequel! ;D The “blurb” has definitely aroused my curiosity.That’s the perfect cover: the open handcuffs (appearing heart shaped!), the holding hands (it looks as though they are giving each other “a hand”), the black background (in contrast to the white GOOD behavior), the Chicago skyline at night, even the pink and white writing – it ties back to the first book perfectly! 🙂 *gets in the front of the queue, waiting for March 8th*

  7. Bookfunatic, I didn't even notice that the open handcuff was heart-shaped! The graphic design team and I went back and forth on several different cover ideas and I'm glad folks are liking the result. Thanks to you and others for putting BB on your to-be-read list! I listed a giveaway but then edited it a bit, so hopefully it will be approved soon.Nix, I agree: YAY!
