We have less than one week until HOLDING ONTO YOU - A Romance Charity Collection goes live and I wanted to talk about why this charity means so much to me. —Brooke


Back in late 2010, my daughter got really ill with bacterial meningitis when she was only 4 weeks old. It nearly killed her overnight and if it wasn't for the amazing ER doctor who continued to do test after test to find out what was wrong, she wouldn't be here today. On top of him sending her to Children's Hospital in Milwaukee, the Ronald McDonald House took my husband and me in for a month while she got treated.

It was one of the scariest moments of my life. I was 22 years old, a month away from graduating college, and Milwaukee was over an hour away from us. Luckily they had room for us and not only did they take the BEST care of us (and everyone else there), it was right over the holiday season in December and they made sure to make it as special as they could for us.

The only way they're able to provide as much as they do for these families are through donations. When I tell you they made sure we had everything we needed and more, I'm not exaggerating. They made it so our only concern was our daughter and making sure we could be there for her. They provided food, hot meals, gift cards, Christmas presents for all our children, and all necessities.

For years, I've been wanting to find a way to pay it forward to the Ronald McDonald House and with your help, I think we can give a $15k-$20k donation (maybe even more)! This is why Willow and us went together to give you 11 full-length bestselling novels for only the price of one! Not only do we want to give back to our amazing readers but we want to donate all the proceeds to this incredible cause.

So if you're able, please help us by spreading the news and preordering the eBook or physical copies! Due to the size of the collection, we've split them up into two volumes. ALL PROCEEDS from the eBook and physical copies will be donated. 

The eBook preorder special is only $3.99 and will go up after release day.







HOLDING YOU CLOSE is less than two weeks away! If you haven't started book 1, now's the time to start your binge-read! Make sure to preorder! Scroll down for a little excerpt :) 

The couples massage nearly had me melting off the table. I’d never felt so relaxed in my life and being able to lay with Noah close to me made it even better. 

“My entire body is butter. You could fold me in half and I wouldn’t feel a thing,” I say as I collapse on the bed.

“Is that so? Maybe I should take advantage of this burst of flexibility.” Noah grabs both of my ankles and pushes my knees to my chest. “Hmm…yeah, I could work with this.” 

I giggle and stretch out my legs, rolling away so he can’t snap me in half. “Nice try. You promised to wine, dine, and cruise me first.” 

“I most definitely am…but also…”  He stands next to the bed and undresses. “We’re using that tub before we leave. Strip, woman.” 

Noah fills it, and I watch as he adds oils and body soap. Next, he lights candles around the bathroom.

“Even though it’s not dark outside yet, we’re going to improvise.” Then he goes around and closes all the curtains. 

My heart bursts out of my chest at every little detail Noah’s thought of. The champagne, the rose petals on the floor, the relaxing music. I didn’t think it was possible to love this man anymore than I already do but every day he proves to me why we should always be together.

“Alright, baby. Tub is full, let’s go.” He grabs my hand and helps me step in, then slides in behind me.

“Oh my God, it feels so good,” I moan out as I lay against his chest. His strong arms wrap around me as he feathers kisses on my neck. 

“You deserve it, baby. I want to give you everything,” he whispers. 

I look over my shoulder and make eye contact with him. “You’re all I want, Noah. You’re all I’ve ever wanted. This romantic weekend getaway is just a bonus.” 

He smiles, then leans down and captures my lips. 

“Even though I don’t deserve you, I’ll spend the rest of my life proving to you how special you are to me.”
