June is a Mom-writer’s favorite month of the year.
At least for me it is.
My daughter is finally out of school for the summer, which means no more waking up at 7am. No more living on less than 5 hours of sleep when I stayed up and worked the night before 😅 And for me, June is going to be a big writing month. Between my daughter particpating in tennis and volleyball this year, I’ll be doing a lot of writing wherever I can. In my car, outside when the humidity doesn’t threaten to make me sweat my butt off, but otherwise, in the house with the A/C blasting.
This is me writing in my car when my husband had an hour and a half dentist appointment. Gotta do what we gotta do to get those words in 😉
The prequel in the Sugarland Creek series, “Come With Me” is set to soft-launch to my subscribers on June 13th!
You’ll be able to read the eBook FREE on any device and listen to the audio a week after that feat. narrators CJ Bloom & Bradley Ford. If you wish to read the German or Italian translation, you’ll be able to by the end of this month! I’m really excited about this because you’ll get a taste of the Hollis family and their ranch before you officially meet them in the rest of the series.
The paperback will be available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I’ll post a form around September for those who want signed paperback copies.
Make sure you’re a newsletter subscriber so you don’t miss out.

And here is the official synopsis for Come With Me:
A second chance prequel from small town romance author Brooke Montgomery about high school sweethearts who find each other again after ten years and reveal secrets that change everything…
I didn’t know I was pregnant.
Ayden walked away from me a decade ago and never looked back.
The only thing he left me was our sweet, amazing daughter.
And a mile-long list of small town secrets.
When his father—the town’s mayor—threatens me, Ayden’s childhood best friend steps in.
And I have no choice but to fight the battles he ran away from.
I spent years looking for the only man who’s ever stolen my heart.
When I finally find him in Sugarland Creek, Tennessee, I go and face him.
He deserves to know the truth.
Not just about his child but his best friend, too.
No matter how much time has passed and how far apart we are, my heart still beats for him.
But I don’t want to get hurt again.
Even though I want to give us another chance, it’s not just my heart on the line…
It’s our daughter’s, too.
Come With Me is a prequel in the Sugarland Creek series. If you love second chances, secret child, and small town tropes, you’ll fall hard for Ayden, Laney, and Serena! Each book in the series is a stand-alone and ends in a happily ever after.

Here With Me excerpt:
*Unedited and subject to change before publication*
“See that guy over there…” She nods her head toward a man chatting in the corner holding a glass of dark liquid. “His name is Hunter. Thirty-two. He’s a publicist for one of the big shot bull riders. Used to be one, too.”
I take a drink as I size up the guy. He’s not that impressive.
Noah twirls a piece of her golden blond hair. “Suit and tie ain’t really my type but he seems cocky enough to at least give decent oral.”
Choking on my beer, I cough until it clears down my throat. Jesus.
“You alright? You sure choke a lot.” She hands me a fresh napkin, and I take it to wipe my mouth.
“You keep takin’ me by surprise.”
Her hands go to her hips as she narrows her eyes at me. “You’re not used to women hittin’ on you? That seems unlikely.”
I don’t know why that makes my body heat but it does. Noah’s like no one I’ve ever met before.
Blunt, beautiful, and unapologetically herself.
And way too goddamn young.
“Are you…blushin’?” she taunts, tilting her head and getting a better look at my face.
“No. I don’t blush,” I say firmly.
Noah’s lips curl up in an amused smirk. “You cowboy…are blushin’.”
“Between the two of us, you’re the one who looks hot and aroused.”
Her gaze holds mine as she swallows hard and licks her bottom lip. Thank God there are two other bartenders who are taking care of the other customers because I like having her full attention.
“Have I rendered you speechless?” I taunt, keeping my eyes on her as I take another sip of my beer.
She grabs a glass, fills it with water, and then chugs it down in one go. Once she’s done, she wipes her chin and grins.
“That’s one way to put me in a chokehold. Not quite the preferred method of chokin’ I’m used to, but I’ll take it.”
“Jesus Christ,” I murmur, shaking my head. My dick heard that one.
