Final Blue Lines
Opposites do more than just attract in Toni Aleo’s latest Nashville Assassins novel about a very bad boy and the good girl he can’t resist.

The instant Piper Allen sees Erik Titov, she wants him—wants his rock-hard body, sure, but the strength and mystery that lies behind that superstar hockey jock demeanor, too. So when he sidles up to her at a bar and slinks his arm around her waist, she’s lost. What follows is the wildest night of her life . . . followed by inevitable heartbreak the next morning. And then, a few weeks later, a very big surprise: two blue lines on a pregnancy test.

Only a check to the head could make Erik fall for a nice girl like Piper. But since their crazy-sexy night together, he’s been trying to forget about her alluring body by falling into bed with every woman in Nashville, and it’s not working. So when Piper shows up at his house with a baby-bomb to drop, it doesn’t take much for Erik to suggest the nuclear option: marriage. While it’s supposed to be all for show, the second they say “I do,” the ice between them starts to melt into sizzling steam.

Falling for the Backup Cover Reveal!

Here it is! I dont have a release date yet! But I know it will be end of May, early June!! What do you think?!??!
Final Falling for the Backup

Toni Aleo’s sexy new eBook original novella featuring the Nashville Assassins will have you believing in the power of love at first sight . . . and second sight . . . and the third.

After serving as a dutiful bridesmaid in the wedding from hell, Aynslee Shaw just wants to slink home to Nashville and forget the whole trip. That is, until the hottest guy she’s ever seen is seated next to her on the flight and dazzles her with his easy laugh and killer smile. But just when she thinks things are getting good, he vanishes, leaving Aynslee wondering, was that guy the one? And did she just let him slip through her fingers?

Former superstar goalie Jordan Ryan is back on the ice—finally. After a crippling knee injury that had him wondering if he’d ever play pro hockey again, he’s got his full attention on rebuilding his career. So a pretty—okay, beautiful—girl on a plane shouldn’t be a distraction. But Jordan is very, very distracted. And when Aynslee crosses his path again, he’s not sure any job in the world is worth missing his second chance with a woman like her.

Cupids Playground Giveaway Hop


vday hop
YAY! I love being invited to do these kind of hops! Janese puts on the best ones! So lets get started! We are supposed to make a list of our sexy heroes and we all know I got some hot ones!!! Here we go!!!!

Shea Adler

Of course, he would be number one out of all my heros.

He is sexy, he is tough, he wears glasses and chucks for goodness sakes!!!!! He is my number 1 in my heart and that could because he was inspired by the hottest man in the NHL.

 

SHEA MOTHER EFFIN WEBER!

 

 

 

 

Second is the beautiful Tate Odder. He is this massive gorgeous swed that makes my panties fall completely off and then because he is such a sweetie, he would help put them back on, after…well…::clears throat:: hehehehe. He was completely there for Audrey in Empty Net and I think that he would be the perfect boyfriend to anyone that would want a Happily Ever After. But I think you’ll have to get rid of Audrey first! 😛

 

Next is sexy Lucas Brooks. I mean there is no other words but RAWR, HOLY MOLY AND CRAP! WHERE DID MY PANTIES GO?! He is by far the dirtiest out of all my Assassins and boy do we like him that way. With tantalizing tattoos, Lucas makes all girls swoon right after they tell their girlie parts to calm the hell down!

 

 

Now, unfortunately y’all havent got to meet Mr. Erik Titov yet, but let me tell you, he is one hot man. Right along with my other hot hockey boys, Erik makes girl swoon with his rare moments of being a great guy. He is a closet romantic with this tough guy exterior. He is fourth on my list but that is only because I can’t give out too much about him. All I can say is he is COMPLETELY trouble! So lock up those hearts ladies, because Erik Titov will be skating into your heart soon enough!

 

Now when I am not drooling over the heroes I created, I have two others that make my heart skip a beat and they are Mr. Darcy  from P&P and Dimirti from Vampire Academy. WHOOOOO WEEEEE those boys make me scream in delight! EEK! hehe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Holy hotness right?!?!? AHH! hehe. Anyways, thanks so much for coming to check out my lusty hotties and please enter for a 25$ giftcard to Amazon or Barnes and Noble!!! Thanks so much!

Hey All!!
There is a tab now for News and Events! Check it out! Also, I am re-posting this from my Facebook in case someone missed it:

So I have gotten a lot of emails and Facebook messages on ways to meet me. Well here is three upcoming ways: I am going to RT in Kansas City on May 3-5. I am working on having signings here in Clarksville at my local Hastings and then one in Nashville, all in May for when the books are released. So if you are going to RT please let me know and if you’d love to come to Clarksville or Nashville please let me know! The more people I know are coming the more likely I wont be scared out of my mind to do this. It would be very embarrassing to set up signings and no one comes but my husband, kids, and mom 😛 hehehe! Can’t wait to meet everyone :)

Let me know! hehe. Also, I am a part of the Cupids Playground Hop that is happening from the 13th to the 18th! So check back for a chance to win a 50$ giftcard!!!

Happy New Years!!!!

Happy New Years all!!!!!!

I know it has been a hot second since I’ve been on and we can blame that on the holidays and trying to finish Blue Lines! But the great thing is, I’m DONE!!! yehaw! As soon as I’m done reading through it and making sure it’s what I want, it will be sent off to the publisher for them to make it all awesome and stuff. Then I will be starting on my novella and then Breaking Away! EEKKK!! My husband made the joke the other day and said, hmmm, how many books are you going to write this year? I smiled and I said, we’ll I wrote, 3 last year so I am thinking at least four this year! hehe! We will see huh?!

I have a lot planned this year and I’m really excited about it all. Not only will be I be writing, but I get to go to conventions this year, something I havent got to do yet. I know that I will be at the Indie convention here in TN but I think I’ll be going to some in other states too! I’ll let everyone know as soon as I know.

Also, I will be getting new covers for Taking Shots, Trying to Score, and Empty Net. I am pretty stinkin excited about that and will share as soon as I get them! Starting in May, a book will come out for the next four months, ending with Blue Lines on August 13, 2013. I am hope that Breaking Away can come out sometime after that, and I am hoping that the novella comes out before then. It’s all so new new since I am with Random House and I know I dont have answers for everything but once I know something I’ll pass on the information. :)

Another awesome thing is that I am apart of this super duper cool blog with all these amazing sports romance authors, called Romancing the Jock! We went live today and there is a snippet of Blue Lines on there!! Go check it out and make sure to come back because I will be posting cool stuff on the site!

I am also going to be updating my swag inventory. I figure I need some cooler stuff, so I’ll be looking into that. Also I will be updating my site with the wonderful Tabby from Insightful Minds. So look forward to that too.

Thanks so much again!!


Holy hot hockey players! I am now a published author with Random House!

Me and my contract from Random House!

EEPPP!!!!!!!!

Its all still so unreal and a part of me really doesnt believe it happened.

When I started Taking Shots, I mainly wrote it for myself. I remember when I finished it, and I looked over at my hubby and said “I just wrote a book.” He laughed and then said “What?” Lol. It was crazy, I wasnt the author type. I’ve always been a writer, I love to write little worlds of awesomeness, but I always thought I was meant to be just a mommy and nurse. Wow, did God, have a different plan for me.

Hubby convinced me to query for agents and publishers. I got rejected by EVERYONE and it really messed with me, I hated the rejection so I said eff it. lol. Well, then I saw that I could self publish, so I did that, I was like yeah, this is going to be awesome! I’ll make friends with new people that like my books and everything will be cool. And that was how it happened. I made some of my bestest friends now, and they have been with me since the beginning!

Well, the editing thing came up, and I was like EEKK! lol. So I hired an editor, got screwed, hired another one, got screwed some more, hey, why not go for a third time, GOT SCREWED AGAIN! lol. So I was to the point where I was ready to quit because people like good edited books. Well I didnt get a decent editor until Empty Net, and even she missed stuff because my books are big and its a lot to edit, but I still feel she did a great job.

I learned a lot, and I am glad with where I was in life. Things we wonderful, I have a fan base, I am interactive with my fans and I feel good. I basically felt like life was wonderful! I was making friends, I was working on Blue Line, and heck yeah, I was going to Disney World. I mean really? What else could happen!? lol. Well, I got an email from a friend that was like, I am talking to an agent for you because I think you need one. I was like okay, cool, I’d like to have an agent because my dream is to have my book in stores. To walk into Target and see my beautiful series on the shelf? I think I might piss my pants and then scream girlie little screams. So be aware when this happens! lol.

Well, I was excited to see what would happen with that but I was too busy with life and getting ready to go to Disney to be really worried about it. I have the mind set that if it happens it was meant to be, if it doesnt, oh well. Well I was out somewhere, and I remember getting an email from Susan Grimshaw, and it was titled Empty Net – Great Job! I cant always view my emails from my phone, it sometimes wont load so I figured I’d read it when I got home. Well I forgot and the next day I was doing my morning check and clicked the email, and this is what it said.

Hi there,
Just wanted to say congratulations on writing such a wonderful story – I love hockey so this theme totally resonated with me.  Your characters are wonderfully developed & I thoroughly enjoyed the journey you took me on – EMPTY NET deserves its starred reviews!
I was curious as to what your future projects may be & if you have any interest in working with a New York publisher such as Random House.
Love to chat with you sometime,
Best,
Sue
Now first, I froze. I read it again and then I started screaming, my computer flew off my lap, I ran into the bedroom and started screaming at my husband about the email. He read it and then he was like “Holy crap.” lol. So I emailed her back, and was like. OMG YES! lol and then I emailed my friend and told her,  “Hey, I got an email from Sue Grimshaw of Random House and she wants to talk to me. I think I may need an agent.”
I got an agent one day, a publisher the next, and then I went to Disney that next Monday.
LMFAO!
I feel so blessed to have the most amazing agent that seriously is there for me. Her name is Alix Taylor and I couldnt have been fitted with a better person. She gets me. She gives it to me straight and she cares. I am a very honest, loving person, and I feel that Alix is what I need to protect me and to turn my name into something big. I am so excited for the ride me and her are about to get on and I know its gonna be a blast.
It was INSANE and I think that my family and I are still in shock. I cried when I got to announce it yesterday via Facebook, and I still get teary eyed when I think about it all. I’ve worked so hard to create this amazing world for my beautiful puck bunnies and to have someone take notice and want me, man, that is the most amazing thing in the world because I think my fans knew this was going to happen before I did. They believed in me when I didnt, and I cant thank y’all enough for that.
So now that I have this contract, I now how deadlines. That is scary let me tell you, I am freaking out a bit. Now, not only do I have to worry about making a great books for my bunnies, but now I gotta make sure I get it done on time for the publisher. Its crazy, but I am ready and I think as long as i have the support system I have, I can do whatever I put my mind too.
I mainly did this post to thank you guys. I am so blessed to have all of you in my life and I hope that you continue to stay with me through everything. Its gonna be fun, I can promise you that. To thank you some more, here is a little snippet of Blue Lines.

“I’m really sorry, it will never happen again.”

“Like I said, I had you if it would have gotten out of control.”

Erik laughed, “How so? Are you a ninja too?”

Piper smiled, “No, but I did take self-defense classes in New York, so I know how to protect myself.”

“Of course you do, I swear you’re a Jack of all trades,” he said as he moved off the bed.

I’m really excited about this book and cant wait for it to come out. I am also excited about the new covers and reedited versions of the past books. I think it will only make my books better! Thank you so much again, girls!
