Some reviews for UGLY DUCKLINGS FINISH FIRST, plus last day for my giveaway!

I’ve been having so much fun letting the world know about UGLY DUCKLINGS FINISH FIRST that I’ve neglected to talk about the people who’ve already read it.  And before I let the chance slip away, let me thank all those who take time out of their busy day to sit down and read one of my books.  I’m so grateful!


In My Humble Opinion:

 “I got a kick out of this story” – 4-star review for UGLY DUCKLINGS FINISH FIRST-In My Humble Opinion Blog

Tome Tender:

“This is a perfectly delightful story” UGLY DUCKLINGS FINISH FIRST 4 stars from @sailon at Tome Tender Book Blog –
Gin’s Book Notes:

“If I had to use three words to describe Ugly Ducklings Finish First they would be—Fun, Fast, and Light!” 4 stars, Gin’s Book Notes

Book-A-Holic Anon:

“Their relationship is quick, hot and filled with a bit of angst as they both realize that they have something special that might be worth holding on to.  I’d love a chance to see them in a few years just to see how things are going so if Stacy wants to write more about Bitterthorn I’d be happy to read it.”  4 stars, Book-A-Holic Anon

Guilty Pleasures

"Ugly Ducklings Finish First is an exceptional story" Guilty Pleasures 4.5 stars @CarinaPress

Reading The Paranormal

“I sat down to read this on a day when I needed something light and playful and I can say -- with confidence -- that I got just that. Wiley and Payton are SO DAMN CUTE together that it worked.” Kelly Rubidoux, 5 stars, Reading the Paranormal


I’ve left links to all the reviewers who’ve taken valuable time out of their schedules to read UDFF, so if you’re a booklover, you might want to take a peek at their various sites. Each one is dedicated to the love of books, and the one thing these peeps have in common is their delight in sharing that love.  So drop in and say hi, okay?  Happy reading!



Metal Mouth. Queen Geek. Dr. Payton Pruitt heard it all growing up. But she’s over it, and attending her ten-year high school reunion is the perfect way to prove it to herself. Even if there’s only one person she’s interested in seeing in Bitterthorn, Texas: Wiley Sharpe.

Now a respected lawyer, Wiley didn’t live down to the label Most Likely to Be Slapped with a Paternity Suit. But recent acts of vandalism suggest someone still sees him as a heartbreaker, and the reunion seems a likely place to find the culprit. Instead, Wiley comes face-to-face with his old pal Payton—and is wowed not only by her transformation into a ravishing swan, but by the connection they still share.

Payton is pleased the playboy she used to tutor has grown into an honorable man, but she’s too smart to fall for a guy with roots in a place she couldn’t wait to leave. But while Payton is an academic genius, Wiley is the one with the PhD in pleasure, and he intends to use it to convince her to stay…

63,000 words

FYI: Be on the lookout for the second Bitterthorn book, STARTING FROM SCRATCH, a Carina Press holiday novella coming this November and edited by the amazing Angela James!
