Happily Ever After at USA Today is offering a non-spoilery snippet of Diamond Fire.
New book releases, give-aways, and appearances.
Free fiction, snippets, and funny stories.
I was at work when I decided to take a quick glance at the blog. I found the snippet and this was the exact sound I made ??. Thank you so much for this sneak peek!
Too funny!!! “We hate you before it was cool to hate you”…so little sister!
So ANY sister. No matter how old you are. (LOL)
Chiray Koo says
This is so awesome! Catalina really does have a different voice than Nevada. Waiting with bated breath…
Yes, that’s what I was going to add. ?❤
شوني Payne says
Need more!!! Authorlords rock
Omg. <3 the queso!!! Lololol
And just like that I figured out what series I am going to reread. Back to Rogan and Nevada I go!!!
Yep! I just decided I need some Nevada in my life now ?
Ahhhh, i was so inti it, i forgot it was a snippet & was shocked when it ended ?
+1. it ended too early. Thank you for the snippet.
What a nice way to kick off the week’s ending. ♡
What a delightful appetizer.
Indeed! Whets my appetite for the Full Meal Deal!
Did anyone else notice that Rogan’s initials spelt out the word car?
“Working at the Krahr wash…” Oh, wait, wrong series.
LOL! I loved it, this will be so awesome and I can’t read it until Nov. Arrgggghhhhhh.
Patricia Schlorke says
Thank you! After reading this I wonder if Nevada’s pregnant? I realize she’s under a lot of stress with the wedding. However she’s not so scattered with her decisions. Hmm….?
I have to keep telling myself, “I will be patient, I will be patient” over and over every time I read a snippet to calm myself down cause I am so excited to read more Hidden Legacy books 😀
This book looks like such FUN, thanks for the link!
So great – Thank you for taking the time to post the link – looking forward to reading Diamond Fire very much.
Love the snippet but can’t wait for the rest of it now. Have just had to make sure that it’s pre-ordered.
Laughing at myself now.
Also love your stuff and i’m sure there is a ‘Special Hell’ for anyone that complains when authors are nice enough to offer free Snippets etc when they are extremely busy 🙂
Colleen Curran says
Loved the snippet and can’t wait for the book. Thank you.
hahaha, this was a fun one, made me smile, really needed it today – thank you 🙂
Wow. Nevada is a bridezilla. I am beginning to love Catalina. Awesome snippet.
I have read it!! Big mistake… because now I feel tortured emotionally??? repeating ‘patience, patience’ like a mantra.
I was so sucked in to the story, I forgot it was a snippet until I hit the end. Ouch!
Can’t wait. 🙂
I’m so looking forward to this one!
LOL Nevada is entitled. After taking care of the family business it’s her turn to inflict some insanity.
I can’t help but think she might be doing some of it to say ‘suck it’ to the people who say she has to have a ‘prime’ wedding. The Baylors are really powerful and everyone looks down on them. She might also be messing with her sisters if they’re trying to micro-manage her. That’s what I would do, “oh you say I can’t have this, well guess what I want worse now!”
Yay more Hidden Legacy! Already have this preordered (it’s in my iBooks app with a cloud download symbol and every so often I press it in vain hope that is already November). Thanks for the snippet!
So awesome!! Can’t wait to read this! Thank you so much for the snippet!
Thank for the link! Enjoyed the snippet.
Having planned my own wedding with too much input from meddlers who would insist on something but wouldn’t follow through with their own tasks, I can completely relate. I imagine Catalina’s stress levels will go through the roof. This will be such a fun read.
Mrs Rogan in a wheelchair… very interested for the backstory!
Lovely snippet! Thank you!!!
Yeah, I was wondering why she was in a wheelchair, too.
I guess we’re all wondering about that. But we’ll have to wait until November ?
Amy Ann says
Oh no you didn’t! You just wanted to torture us with a little bite of deliciousness, didn’t you? I love it! Thanks so much!
This showed up this morning in my RSS feed, but I didn’t want to post it in the comments since I figured Ilona would put it on the blog. And she did! Delightful to read and I sent it to a few fans as well this morning.
I’m with everyone else at being simultaneously awed at the writing pace planned for the next year and anxious about the vacation time that should also be scheduled.
Take care of yourselves and your family!
Thank you so much for the link to the snippet- what a lovely surprise ?
Most blues go fine with almost anything but orange. I don’t see that it clashes enough to worry about. Of course, it’s been a long time since I was a teenager or read bridal magazines like bibles.
Ah, such a nice snippet to devour while I take my break from studying. Thank you so much. You and everything you write are so awesome ^_^
Loved the snippet, thank you. Can’t wait for the release. I pre-ordered!
Thank you..love it..
A lot of new information..can’t wait to be nov
Diane Lang says
This one is going to be so much fun! November seems very far away right now. Thanks! 😀
Thank you! Sooooo good. Waiting on the book! Gonna get it! Thank you!
“We hate you”, hah!
Wonderful as usual. The ebook has already been pre-ordered. Looking forward to it immensely.
barbie doll says
Notice no Connor presence. He correctly has made himself scarce. This was fun
The sad part about all this. 2 more months to get more….
So excited! Thank you for the link to the snippet ?
brilliant, lovely, cannot wait. this is my most favourite series of yours I love it and am so happy it is making its comeback. someone mentioned the different voice for Catalina, it is very evident but amazing at the same time, she always reminds me of a spiritual, calm and collected young person. happy wkend to you and yours and relaxation and plotting for the comeback to JF’s amended cover!!!
Ha! I can’t imagine planning a big, detailed laden wedding. My wedding had 15 guests, my bouquet was carnations I bought that morning. My dress was $350. It seems like a lot of drama – but toss in the writing skills of the Author Lords and it will be a great read!
Right there with you! My total wedding party (including bride and groom) was 12, I made my own brooch bouquet, bought my ex-display skirt and corset for less than £100, had the ceremony in a tiny little fairytale folly, and arranged it in less than 3 months. And even now, some of the guests tell other people that it was the best wedding they’d ever been too ?
Thank you so much. I can’t believe I want more. You write so much and I still want more. It’s some kind of book/ blog addiction.
I just read Wildfire again , just for the ferret heist.
But this time reading, I think there is something more to Augustine, hints of foreshadowing. Something else. A possible romance?
I want to compliment you on your description of children, they are always individuals, with intelligence, and not afraid to speak their mind.
They are not cute accessories, or would be victims.
And so I wait for more SOTB. ?.
Thank you so much and I hope Brandi has a little time off. She worked so hard last week. And horrible people were so mean. Ungrateful people.
Loved it! Thank you!
Gosh! The bridal bouquet!!!
I remember my sister’s wedding day! My sister had a melt down when she saw that the flowers in her bouquet was not what she specifically ordered, the combination lacked the size she wanted! Good thing the wedding planner had the florist contract with her and fixed the problem after reading her the stipulations in the contract. While I had to make sure that my sister’s eyes were not puffy from the crying jag!
Thanks for the snippet. I look forward to reading this book!!!
What a delightful treat for a Friday afternoon.
Nevada as a low key Bridezilla – how funny! Now I want to have a Rogan POV about it!

You are setting a dangerous precedent… a book and three snippets in two weeks?!
I feel spoiled!
We are spoiled.
So spoiled! ?
Totally spoiled. Thank you both!
Totally love the snippet! I can completely visualize that little girl and her unicorn and all that seriousness! LOL
That is a great snippet… Hidden Legacy #4 is going to be amazing. You guys blow me away, every time.
I am so looking forward to this book
Hangs head. Yes, we are spoiled. And loving it.
Bill G says
Oh sweet mercy! I didn’t realize you had gifted us with two gems today!!!
As soon as I saw Maud’s next installment was up, I clicked the link, not realizing there was another important post in my email from you.
What a delightful surprise! I cannot wait for this next Hidden Legacy novel. I love being in Catalina’s head already, and it’s fun seeing parts of Nevada’s HEA from another point of view.
Squee! Looking forward to this one!
Gale D says
Yeah! What a tease, can’t wait!!
AJ Rother says
Me: Must. Wait. Until. November.
Also me: But I want it now!
Me: Look the time machine is broken, so suck it up!
I love this series so much. <3
:DDDDDDDDDD I’m so EXCITED!
Jess Smith says
Oh my! So many heart faced emojis for this.
R Coots says
Eee! I love Catalina. I’m so glad we get to come back to this world! And we get to see Rogan’s mom! Whoo! Also, hahahaha, stuffed unicorn! I love it!
Squeeee! I love, love, love the Hidden Legacy books! That’s going to be a fabulous birthday present in November. 😉
Super squee, can’t wait for Nov 6th!!!
Nancy D Cardenas says
NYAHHH. This is so exciting! Thank you for this ?
I listen to this series so much in my audible app that reading them I can hear Renee Raudman doing the voices… I hate you.. I hate you more… I hated you before it was cool… Gah.. I love this series
Karen the Griffmom says
Snippets drive me crazy. Typical internal monologue after reading: “OMG. LOVE THIS. MUST HAVE THIS! Wait, didn’t I already preorder this? I’m sure I preordered this . . . what if I didn’t . . . MUST CHECK NOW . . .aaahhh, I did pre-order this . . .”
Speaking of which, I need to check on Diamond Fire . . .
Just read the snippet of Hidden legacy. Yea! Can’t wait! Also just saw your schedule. So glad your going to work on a book 4! Love that series.
I read through books so fast, I really enjoy reading Mauds story a little at a time!
Congrats on finishing Kate’s series! I’ve bought the book but haven’t finished it yet.
Just wanted to say thank you! Love your books! All of them.

Get thee behind me!
Ahhhhh, Aarrgghh … the temptation; the temtation
Nope not gonna do it ! ! ! ! !
It’s BAD enough I got to wait months for this puppy to show up!
Not to mention AND yeah i am sooooo mentioning …
I have not recovered from the decision of those wipes to push back publication & live in constant fear that such an atrocity could occur again at the vagaries of those menches …
You torture torment & tempt me with a snippet
Snip this, you wrote a book, they gave a publication date i am pre-ordered. There is an ORDER to this chaoctic universe AND there it is! and that’s the truth :-p
I had to Google Wonder Blue. Now I want one to plant in my yard.
