Gray Card is Free till Friday!

Have you been thinking about trying one of my books, but just aren’t sure? Wondering what all the hubbub is about with these Short, Sexy, Scifi reads? Wonder no more!

In celebration of Resident Alien‘s release TOMORROW, Gray Card is free on Amazon now through Friday 😀 (April 10 – 14, 2017)

It’s the story of a nerdgirl who discovers that her gorgeous best friend is an alien general who has to leave the planet in three days if they don’t get married ❤

These novellas are short, fast-paced, and H-O-T. A perfect little break when you want to slip away from reality for a bit.

Check it out! You know you wanna ;D

Gray Card by Cassandra Chandler

Is he after her heart or her planet?

Evelyn Chambers is a nerdgirl and damned proud of it. When she finds out that her drop-dead gorgeous best friend is an alien general with only three days left of his shore leave on Earth, she has to wrap her head around too much at once. Aliens are real, and if she wants to keep hanging out with one, she’ll have to marry him!

Adam Smith has never seen a planet as beautiful as Earth or a woman as enticing as Evelyn. His government wants him to re-enlist, but the stars seem cold and distant. When Evelyn suggests marriage to help him stay, Adam realizes that what he really wants is her, and he’ll sacrifice everything to be with her.

Can he convince his government—and Evelyn—that he’s looking for more than a Gray card?

This is the second edition of the same novella originally released in October of 2015.
Approximately 20,000 words.

Happy Birthday, Hiram!

Today in the alternate universe of Summer Park, Garrett and Rachel Wolfstrom’s first born turns one!

Whispering Hearts by Cassandra Chandler

I’m already seeing bits and pieces of what he’ll be like as an adult. He’s the quietest of the offspring from the first two books, though I think Alexis might have him beat in seriousness.

The twins won’t be arriving for a bit yet, so Hiram is enjoying the one-on-one time with his parents. Everyone’s households will be a lot noisier once Dylan and Dierdre arrive! He’s also getting closer with Alexis, who will be one of his closest friends throughout his life.

Not much of his story is coming through to me yet (Dierdre’s story is the one coming through the strongest so far), but I’m already looking forward to getting to know him and all the other protagonists in this series better 🙂

Happy first birthday, Hiram ❤

Happy Birthday, Dante!

On this day two years ago, I posted birthday wishes for Dante, the hero of my first published novel, Wandering Soul. I gave my readers a peek into what his life was like before the events of that story (they took place starting on April 25).

Wandering Soul is about Elsa Sinclair, a time-traveling romance novelist who goes back in time and discovers Dante, the man behind the legend of The Phantom of the Opera. She brings him to modern times to save his life, and they fall in love.

Wandering Soul by Cassandra Chandler

I’ve always been obsessed with fascinated by The Phantom of the Opera story, and daydreamed endlessly about what it would be like if there was a regular person—a kind, intelligent, wonderful person—at the root of the legend, and he somehow found out about the stories that grew up from his life. When Wandering Soul found a home at Samhain Publishing, it was a dream come true. I was so happy that this would be the first story that I ever had published. Much of that was because Dante is so dear to me.
