╣Excerpt╠
  I closed my eyes when my head started to spin. “Have a first date, a first kiss, smoke a cigarette, get a fake ID, go skinny dipping. Have sex.” When I opened my eyes, Ryan was staring at me. My heart pounded. He was so close I could feel the heat radiating off his body. It made the blood sizzle in my veins. “All that before you turn twenty?” he whispered. I nodded and his eyes went over my face, lingering on my lips. “How long do you have?” My heart pounded in my ears, drowning out the ocean and the wind. Even the music from the party. “A year. I turn nineteen September fifth.” “Seems doable,” he said, scooting closer. “How many things have you marked off?” “Four before tonight.” My heart pounded even faster, and I inhaled sharply. His eyes were still on my lips and it made my brain even fuzzier than the alcohol. “Now I can cross off getting drunk, and Cami says we’re going to stay out all night.” He pulled back a fraction of an inch. “How drunk are you?” I shook my head and blinked a few times when my temples pounded. “I don’t have anything to compare it to.” He frowned, then his eyes went to my lips. “We can cross something else off, if you want.”

What reviewers are saying about
Sugar Rush...

"I could not put this book down. It was laugh out loud funny, hot, romantic, sweet, and it even had me tearing up in parts. A perfect addition to an incredible series."

Author Bio

Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down under. 

At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown's Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance. 

Having been brought up in a loud and boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love. 

Humorous romance novels. 

Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously awaiting their newest titles. 

Belle never thought she would write. It had never interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February 2013 Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love. 

With words. 

With writing. 

With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.

Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.

My First Signing Event!

Well, I had my first signing event last night at the St. Charles County Library. I felt like I'd made it! However, no one bought any books, it was still a great event. I'm pretty sure there was only myself and maybe a couple other romance writers there. There were lots of children's book authors, cookbooks, self-help books, travel books, etc... Here I am all set-up and ready to sign some books!10603651_10203172425213860_6995850508688627389_n

While I may not have sold any books, I met lots of other local authors, although not in the same genre, they all shared great stories and advice. I also got to hang out with the awesome library staff that does an amazing job of supporting local writers-a big thank you for all your hard work and dedication! And more importantly, I had an assistant with me and we had a pretty good time hanging out together (this is my 10 year-old niece):

Hopefully this is just the first of many signings and eventually I'll have some fans come visit me. In the meantime, it was still pretty awesome to just be a part of the community.
