It’s been a great week for me. Monday I’ll get back to The Beautician and the Billionaire Episode 3: The Third Ship. To my amazement, Episode 2 recieved a review today on Smashwords.
To my further amazement, my brand spanking new short story in the Holiday Cafe Series, Veteran Hearts, received a 5 star review at Smashwords. I never get reviews at Smashwords. It also broke my record for number of downloads in one day there.

I’m sorry I’ve been totally neglecting The Beautician and the Billionaire. I’ve been focussed on Thankful Hearts and the surprises I have planned for Veterans Day. I promise by Friday it will be all Beautician and the Billionaire all the time 🙂
Today has been one of those days I’ve dreamed of having for a long time. My sales are way up, the first customer review for Thankful Hearts is up at Amazon (Thanks Blueduck516!) and Romance Novels for the Beach posted a review of Thankful Hearts!
Please, please please read her whole review. Here’s just a snippet:
Aster can definitely describe a sex scene in amazing detail, but when it comes to those scenes where Hudson is transported back to the battle field in his mind, shaking and sweating with anxiety? They are so gripping that I found myself holding my breath, and even bouncing my leg in anticipation.
I spent so much time trying to get Hudson just right that those words were really gratifying to read.
And check back Wednesday for some fun!

Desire surged throughout his body. He moved his hands up beneath her business jacket and along her back, untucking her blouse and itching to undo her bra, but he’d save that for later. Her hands slid up his chest and underneath his leather jacket. He was so into her body beneath his hands and her scent in his nose that he’d forgotten about his gun. Her fingers ran into the tip of the holster, and her whole body froze.
He released her lips and body and stepped back. Her eyes were wide, but he couldn’t really read her expression. They stared at each other in silence, which seemed to make the situation worse. He felt guilty and inexplicably scared for her. She was up in the mountains with a total stranger who had a gun. He fumbled over his words, trying to ease her fears. “I’m so sorry. I shouldn’t have brought it. I wasn’t expecting–” he broke off his sentence realizing anything he said might be taken the wrong way.
She stared at him a long moment and then finished his sentence. “For me to throw myself at you?”
He expelled his breath and combed his fingers through his hair. This woman couldn’t be for real. “I’ve got no complaints, but you’re up here with a complete stranger who’s carrying a gun he didn’t tell you about. I appreciate that you’re not screaming your head off.”
She rolled her lips together. The moonlight showed a vulnerability in her eyes, but her words were spoken with confidence. “I assume you’re waiting to kill me until after we’ve had sex, but the sex will make you forget your evil plan.”
By the way, Stacy and Hudson meet in the story on the first Thursday of November, Which is today!
Thankful Hearts is with my editor for 2nd/3rd round edits. It’s also with a veteran from the Iraq War to make sure Hudson is a reasonable portrayal of someone with PTSD. Continue reading
