Hard As Stone is LIVE! I'm so happy the wait is over for readers to get Ethan and Summer's story. When I started writing Hard As Stone last year, I fell in love with these two characters. They're funny and sexy and being around them was such a great time.
I knew when I decided to write the 8th book in the Heart of Stone series that the number 8 might chase some people away, so I've been sure to explain that this is a standalone book. All the next generation books in the series that will release this year are. This is Ethan and Summer's story, and at the end, there's an HEA. Same with Tressa and Killian's story in Set In Stone and Diana and Cole's story in Silent As A Stone. All the Stone family appear in each of the books, but they're standalone books with HEAs at the end of each.
People have asked me if they need to read the first books in the series to understand these books. While Tristan and Nina's story from the first books is definitely one I'd say to read, no, they aren't necessary to understand Hard As Stone or the other books that will release soon. Ethan, Tressa, and Diana were babies when I finished Tristan and Nina's story back in Ever After and A Heart of Stone Christmas. Now they're all grown up and finding their own happiness, but their parents are a big part of their lives. That's one of the best things about writing this family. They love each other, no matter what.
And if you're curious about those earlier books, well you can start the Heart of Stone series for FREE with book 1, Crash Into Me, right now. I hope readers enjoy Hard As Stone as much as I enjoyed writing it. I've had such a wonderful time writing in the Heart of Stone series again. It's been like going home for me.
