The only pirate I like is Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Morgan, which means I’d appreciate if you’d keep my books to yourself. Pirating shows a clear lack of respect for the author—me. I’d rather not meet you on bad terms, so let’s not do that, let’s not meet that way. Let’s meet at a signing or conference instead, or let’s go have a cup of coffee or a drink—maybe some of that Captain Morgan! Thank you for respecting the time and effort put into each book. I appreciate it very much.
Thank you, Nicole Bailey. You are the best editor and best friend I could ever have. Thank you for the nickname Xander will forever more use for the babies. Thanks for putting up with my shit.

To the bloggers – Thank you for everything you do.
To Mandi Wathey – Thank you for handling our Man Candy posts in the Rockstar group. You give the ladies something amazing to look forward to every morning. Thank you for your unconditional friendship. I truly adore you!
To My Sister, Shelly, and my niece, Teah – Thanks for putting up with me when I’m on a crazy schedule and for listening to me ramble on about books even though you’re not readers. I love you guys!
To My Boys, Travis and Mike – Thanks for sharing my books with your friends who share them with their moms. The fact that you’re not even embarrassed that your mom writes “those” books is so cool. I love you both.
To My Mom – Who reads my books religiously, provides valuable feedback, and loves my characters as much—if not more—than I do. So you all know, she would like Xander’s book NOW, too.
To My Dad – For your silent support and pride. Thank you for believing.
To Harper Bentley – You are the shit! Thank you for being a true bestie!

To my street team – Mandi Wathey, Cindy Carlson, Melissa Steps, Dawn Stanton, Kelly Emery, Tera Chastain, Lisa Sylva, Heather Wish, Veronica Garcia, Melissa Mendoza, and Jaime Burns – Without you I couldn’t function. You are my helpers and my promoters and my strongest supporters. I love you guys.
To my new PAs – Melissa Mendoza and Jaime Burns: God bless you both. You are a godsend. True story. You do all the things I just don’t have the time to do—even the shitty jobs like addresses—and you do it without complaint! Thank you!
To Sara Eirew – Photographer and cover designer extraordinaire – You are THE best!
To Milo Ventimiglia – Thank you for continuing to inspire the Rockstar series by just being you.
To M. Shadows and Avenged Sevenfold – Thank you for sharing your gifts with the world. Your music inspires and motivates me and for that I’ll always be grateful because without you, there would be no Rockstar series.
A Rockstar Novella
Dedicated to the Kingston babies
It’s time for the Kingston triplets to be born.
I’ve heard stories of how women have their water break or go into labor in their home. That’s not how it happened with Lucy and our babies. As long as Lucy and the babies are okay, I’ll be okay--even if we are surrounded by the Russo Famiglia.
But nothing has been normal for us from the day we met. So why would it start now?
To Avenged Sevenfold –
Without you as inspiration, this series would never have happened.
