Sophie Jackson continues her Pound of Flesh series with an upcoming novella (Fate and Forever) and novel (A Measure of Love). Get a sneak peek with the cover reveals and summaries!
My homegirl Sophie Jackson is a busy-bee! Since June 2015, she has published two novels in the Pound of Flesh series (Carter/Kat’s initial story in A Pound of Flesh and the sequel, An Ounce of Hope, following Carter’s best friend Max). We were also treated to an accompanying novella Love and Always to help us segue between the two novels.
Well, Sophie is still hard at work—she has another novella and novel in store for us in 2016, and I couldn’t be happier!
If you’ll recall, though An Ounce of Hope focussed on Max and his lady, Grace, we also got snippets of Carter and Kat’s wedding planning and their big day. We also learned a little more about Riley Moore (Carter and Max’s business partner/bestie) and his past relationship woes. The next two books in the series explore these storylines. Check out the covers and summaries below:
Sophie Jackson’s award-winning Pound of Flesh novels reignite “that feeling of sneaking risqué books under the bedcovers with a flashlight” (RT Book Reviews)! Join her millions of online fans with this irresistible e-novella that takes the intimate relationship between a gutsy prison tutor and her sexy bad-boy student to the ultimate level.
When tutor Kat Lane met her brooding, dangerously tempting student Wesley Carter behind bars, she never dreamed of the day she would be excitedly planning for their wedding. It won’t be long before they’re man and wife, and neither Kat nor Carter can wait. But as they settle into the joyful haze of nearly-newlywed bliss, all their friends seem to be one step ahead. Everywhere they turn, couples are becoming parents, and the longing in Kat’s eyes worries Carter. What if she gets baby fever…and he’s not so sure? Carter’s childhood was rough, and his father was no example for how to be an upstanding man—or a good parent. Can Carter create a happy, safe, supportive home for his future children with Kat—the life he never had growing up? He had better figure it out soon…because Kat just told him she needs to take a pregnancy test.
From award-winning fanfic phenomenon Sophie Jackson, the third novel in the sexy and emotionally intense blockbuster A Pound of Flesh series.
Life in New York for ex-con, Riley Moore is pretty damn good until a call from his mother shatters the calm–his father has suffered his second heart attack in two years and is in a critical condition. Leaving everything behind, and with his brother, Tate, Riley flies back home to Michigan for the first time in five years to support his mother and do his best to make amends with his father, all the while trying not to think about how close he is, once again, to the heartbreak of his past, Lexie Pierce, the only girl he ever truly cared about.
Inevitably, Riley sees Lexie, and is overcome with memories about their love and the pain they both suffered. Even with the hurt still surrounding his heart, Riley is eager to reconnect. As wary as she is, and with a secret she’s hidden from him for five years, Lexie only has so much willpower when it comes to Riley, and agrees. Besides, she owes it to both of them to find out if, after all that has gone before, they can love each other again.
Can they both overcome their sorrow and secrets and finally share their life together?
A powerful new voice in modern romance, Sophie Jackson has crafted a passionate love story with stunning twists and unforgettable characters that will stay with you long after you’ve turned the last page.
I’m so excited for these two stories! I can’t wait for more details about Wes and Kat settling into married life and possibly becoming parents…EEEP! Here’s hoping for some HOT newlywed sexy times 😉
Also, Riley and Tate Moore were two of the very best parts of An Ounce of Hope. Hearing Riley have a heart-to-heart with Max about his lost love was particularly moving. I’m a sucker for second-chance romance, so I’m totally looking forward to seeing Riley go after the lady who got away. Plus, I need some Moore family shenanigans in my life!
