The Bound to You cover reveal!

Here is the lovely cover for the combined & paperback version of Bound to You. If you haven’t read Bound to You, you can now read all three volumes in one combined ebook. Paperbacks will be available soon. 🙂

iBooks: Coming soon.
Kobo: Coming soon.
Now for my special announcement…

I have had so many readers reach out to me asking for a fourth volume of Bound to You and I know it’s because I left many of you with some unanswered questions, but I want you to know that I always planned on answering them. I just had a different idea of how I was going to go about it.

There is a story to be told and there are definitely questions to be answered. I could write Nicholas & Rebecca’s happily ever after into Drawn to You, but I feel that it would be unfair to Tristan & Emily. They have an amazing story and I don’t want to take away from that.

So, after almost a month of thinking about what I wanted to do and what readers would enjoy the most, I decided that I need to write a fourth volume. For you, for me, for Rebecca and Nicholas. You will be seeing more of them and I hope that’s good news for you all.

So I can guess that your next questions is when? When will you see Rebecca & Nicholas again?

The short answer is hopefully soon. The long answer is…

I’m thinking of releasing Volume 4 after Drawn to You. The timeline for Tristan & Emily’s story almost runs parallel to Nicholas & Rebecca’s. If I release Volume 4 before Drawn to You, I think it would spoil some interesting scenes for readers.

With that said, nothing is set in stone so things can change. But don’t worry, you will be reading more from me this year. 😉

Lastly, I want to thank you guys for being so supportive. It’s an indescribable feeling to know that there are so many readers out there that enjoy my writing. It has really helped me through moments where I’ve doubted myself. I can’t thank you enough for helping make my dreams come true. I’ve always wanted to be a published writer and you guys helped me make that happen. Thank you again!

Happy Release Day: Bound to You: Volume 3

Hello lovelies,

Happy Release Day! Yay!

I’m getting a lot of when will Bound to You: Volume 3 be up? I don’t have a firm answer. It can take anywhere between 12 hours or more. I uploaded it late last night (PST). It is coming! The date hasn’t changed. It just might take a while for the book to go “live!”

So with that said, I’m asking for your patience. I know you’ve waited a long time to read volume 3 and I’m just as anxious for you to read it, but for now it’s out of my hands. I will be stalking Amazon & B&N until it’s up and I will post the links here as soon as it goes live.

For those who use Smashwords, I can tell you that the epub version for Nook, Kobo, Sony Reader is up. I’m working on getting the mobi (Kindle) version up there too.

Release Date for Volume 3 Changed to August 16th

Hello my lovely readers,

I just wanted to update you all that the release date for Bound to You: Volume 3 is being pushed back to August 16th. I know it sucks major monkey balls, but I had to push it back because I recently lost some of my work. Unfortunately, I had to rewrite a good chunk of Volume 3 and there was no way I was going to finish and have everything edited in time for the 2nd, so I made the decision to change the release date. I’m sorry to those of you who have been patiently & impatiently waiting for Volume 3. Believe me when I say, I want this thing finished. Not because I don’t love the story, but because it’s stressful as hell when people are waiting on you. It has done horrid things for my health. 

I can happily tell you that Volume 3 is the longest volume and you will find a surprise at the end of the book. It’s something that I haven’t announce yet, but it’s definitely in the works of happening. 😉 I think you guys will be excited about it too. 

That’s it for me. I hope you guys have a wonderful day and try not to hate me too much because I really love all of you!

With that said, I leave you with a teaser a friend of mine made for Volume 3. 🙂

Why I’m Okay With Making You Wait…


I am not a cruel person.

I do not enjoy making people wait for my stories but with that said, I am okay with it.

In this digital age, many of us want instant gratification. We want to be able to read the next book or see the next movie/TV show the second, minute, hour, or day after we’ve read or watched the first. Who hasn’t done a back-to-back marathon of an entire season of a TV show? (I totes did this with Downton Abbey). And then immediately after, we whine and complain about having to wait a whole week before watching the next Game of Thrones episode or months for the next The Walking Dead season. We want things immediately. And you know what? I understand, I’ve been there (who hasn’t?), but I also think that we’ve sort of lost the art of enjoying the anticipation.

Something can be said about the feeling of anticipation. It leaves you with a mixture of pleasure, anxiety, and excitement.

You know, the same feeling you get when you’re going to go on a first date but your eight hour work day has never felt so long, or the feeling you get when you’re planning a future vacation and it can’t be here soon enough, or even the feeling you get waiting for the work week to end so you can party the weekend away.

Sure, waiting sucks but when you finally get to enjoy that first date, well deserved vacation, or your weekend – it’s worth it.

And that’s how I am going to think about this final volume of Bound to You. I know if you really loved the story, you’ll wait. Because you know what? Any good story is worth waiting for. And I want Volume 3 to be the best story it can be. Trust in me.

Enjoy the anticipation. Ride the wave. Because Volume 3 will be here before you know it.

Hey you….yeah you. ;)

Hey you....yeah you. ;)

Hi fellow readers,

In preparation for the release of Volume 2, I’ve decided to do a promotion on Amazon for Volume 1. It will be free from 6/5 – 6/6. If you haven’t read volume 1, be sure to pick it up before it goes back to being 99c. It goes back up on Saturday! 

The second thing I wanted to talk about is the length of Volume 2. I just want you guys to know that I listened. Volume 2 is a good amount longer than the first and I really think you’ll be happy with it.

I am beginning to work on Volume 3 which will be the last volume to this story arc. While that makes me a little sad, I’m thrilled that so many people have enjoyed Rebecca and Nicholas. Don’t be surprised if you see them in another story. 😉

That’s all for now.



Announcement: Release Date for Bound to You: Volume 2

Hey my lovely readers,

I’m excited to announce that the second volume of Bound to You will release June 6th! Yay!

I hope you guys love it. I also would like to say a BIG thank you to those of you who’ve reached out to me. I have amazing readers. Thank you for all your words of encouragement. It really means a lot to me. This one is for you. ❤



Do you know what day it is?

In celebration of my upcoming release, I am hosting a giveaway for three e-copies of Bound to You. You can help me spread the word by sharing with your friends and family.


Arrogant, brooding, domineering, possessive, dangerously handsome, and a playboy. These are all of the characteristics on Rebecca Gellar’s Run-Like-Hell list for men, but she’s about to meet the man who’s the epitome of these and more…

After breaking off her engagement with Hollywood actor Miles Storm, Rebecca is ready for a change of scenery in her life and in her bed. So when the opportunity to work for StoneHaven Publishing, one of New York City’s most respectable publishing empires presents itself, Rebecca doesn’t hesitate moving to the Big Apple.

Convinced she can show the owner of StoneHaven Publishing that she has the “right stuff,” Rebecca agrees to a six month trial as the personal assistant to the owner’s playboy son, Nicholas StoneHaven. This is her big chance. If she can just get through these six months without strangling Nicholas with his Armani tie, she’ll be okay – easier said than done. Nicholas is the last person Rebecca thought she’d find herself pining for, especially when he hits every category under her list.

Get ready for a battle of the sexes…

My First 5 Star Review…Amazeballs!

I received my first 5 STAR review for Bound to You: Volume 1!

Here’s what Karol said, ” How do I describe Bound To You ? Absolutely and utterly Fanfreakintastic …. How do I describe Nicholas StoneHaven absolutely and utterly every women Wet fantasy … With looks that makes every woman melt in a puddle of lust , a personality that makes you wanna please him in every way …. Is no wonder Rebecca has a hard time saying no to him …. But no she most say , because even if they both feel the undeniable current of lust , He is forbidden . 
After getting her heart broken by her cheating ex fiancé Rebecca Gellar leaves her hometown in Los Angeles flying to New York for a Job interview at the very famous and prestigious StoneHaven Publishing . Never mind that she is deadly afraid of flying and just her luck the airplane is going thru a bad storm , her purse goes flying directly in to first class and lands by the most handsome man she has ever seen … And with the airplane shaking thru the turbulence she ends up landing on his lap, and that is how their first encounter and kiss happen . I’m just going to tell you that each encounter gets steamier, hotter, it will leave you panting . 
Bound to You is well written ,hot ,romantic it makes your heart sings , I love how the Author lets us read the book from Nicholas and Rebecca’s point of view it makes it complete balance knowing what each of them is feeling . I am glad to have been giving the privilege to read the ARC of this book , I devoured it in one sitting could not put it down and was very sad that I now have to wait for volume two when , volume one has not even been release … I’m crying in the inside really, waiting is going to suck . That is how great Bound To You really is ! Author Vanessa Booke you got me truly hooked , my hat off to you ! ;)”

If you haven’t put Bound to You: Volume 1 on your TBR list, do it now. 😉


For those of you who don’t know, I am having a release day celebration on Facebook on May 5th! Come join the fun.
