The Surrogate Series by Haley Rhoades:

I started writing The Surrogate Series in the year 2000. I have several notebooks, big and small, along with some printed sections to this tale. This year, I started organizing it all and sharing the story with you. 
Book one: The Proposal-This short story introduces three best friends. Two years apart seems like an eternity when you grew up together. A Fourth of July trip reunites Jackson, Kennedy, and Taylor. The Three Amigos are together again, but they have issues to work through. Can they move past an abusive ex? Can they beat a negative fertility diagnosis? Can everything pick up where they left off over two years ago?
Book two: Taylor wasted no time volunteering to be Jackson and Kennedy’s surrogate. Sometimes it takes three to make a baby. With medical complications and financial strain, the threesome look to unorthodox methods to create their baby. How far would you go to help a friend?
Book three: Taylor is pregnant with her best friends’ baby. The surrogacy has begun. Morning sickness, food cravings, OB appointments, fatigue and swelling…will Jackson and Kennedy support their baby momma?
Book 2 & Book 3 Status Update:
Many fans are anxiously awaiting the release of The Deed Book Two in The Surrogate Series.  I promised it Fall 2017.  I had hoped to release in October, but life happened.  I should have the book out next week.  Social media will announce when it is ready. I am so very excited for you to read this book.  More excited than I was with The Proposal.
I have started on book three this month too. I focus on book two during the day and write on book three at night.  I have a slow start on it, but that will change when I can publish book two and focus more. 

Author Spotlight:

I average reading three books per week.  My favorite genres are Young Adult and Romance.  Occasionally I stray into other genres when a book sounds to delicious to avoid.

This week I am continuing my sharing one of my most favorite Romance authors-Kristen Ashley.
My favorite series is The Rock Chick Series. It is a definite must read. That being said I love, love, loved every book I read by this author. On the site there is a recommended reading order as some of the series overlap a bit.

Confession: I have read most of her books twice. I also have listened to the audiobook version at least once. Like I stated I love her! If you enjoy audiobooks, like I do, I recommend Kristen Ashley’s books on Audible.  The narrators are top notch.  They bring these action filled stories to life. I enjoy my audiobooks to entertain while driving, cleaning, walking Nala, or relaxing in my tub.

Newbie’s Next Read:

In my many Facebook Groups, I am meeting some talented new authors just breaking into the world of self-publishing and traditional publishing.  Today I want to mention author Gabi Moore. So far, I have read two of her books.  I plan to continue seeking her books to read. Gabi writes real books. By real I mean gritty, dirty, real world relationships with imperfect characters that draw you in. This author is not for the mainstream, sweet, romance reader. If you enjoy more detailed scenes or BDSM stories, even if only once in a while like I do, then I recommend SEAL’d Trust and Mindfuck-A Bad Boy Romance with a Twist.

She has many more books and I plan to read another one soon.

Haley Rhoades’ writing is another bucket-list item coming to fruition, just like meeting Stephen Tyler, Ozzie Smith and skydiving. As she continues to write romance and young adult books, she plans to complete her remaining bucket-list items, including ghost-hunting, storm-chasing, and bungee jumping. She is a Netflix-binging, Converse-wearing, avidly-reading, traveling geek.
A team player, Haley thrived as her spouse’s career moved the family of four 10 times to four states. One move occurred eleven days after my C-section. Now with two adult sons, Haley copes with her newly emptied nest by writing and spoiling Nala, our precious Pomsky. A fly on the wall might laugh as she talks aloud to her fur-baby all day long.
Haley’s under five-foot, fun-size stature houses a full-size attitude. Her uber-competitiveness in all things entertains, frustrates, and challenges family and friends. Not one to shy away from a dare, she faces the consequences of a lost bet no matter the humiliation. Her fierce loyalty extends from family, to friends, to sports teams.
Haley’s guilty pleasures are Lifetime and Hallmark movies. Her other loves include all things peanut butter, Kansas City Chiefs, St.Louis Cardinals, Star Wars, mathematics, and travel. Past day jobs vary tremendously from an elementary special-education para-professional, to a YMCA sports director, to a retail store accounting coordinator, and finally a high school mathematics teacher.
Haley resides with her husband and fur-baby in a south Des Moines suburb. This Missouri-born girl enjoys the diversity the Midwest offers.
Reach out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or her website…she would love to connect with her readers.
