Yo ho, yo ho a Darlings life for you!

Time for one more summer novel! FREE this Labor Day weekend, The Darlings of Orange County!

Chill as a dirty Pearl martini, dangerous as a drunken pirate, hilarious as a Real Drunken Housewife.

The Darlings of Orange County is waiting for your Kindle, PC or iPad, via Apple's KindleApp.

Having become a fan of Jenny's writing via her blog, I eagerly snagged a copy of Ms. Devore's The Darlings of Orange County for my e-reader. The description promises "salacious and comical" and this book delivered. I had downloaded a sample of Fifty Shades of Grey: Book One of the Fifty Shades Trilogy and did not find the book compelling enough to hit the "buy" button. But I was in the mood for a read that is a bit naughty. Nothing too serious. I wanted a break from gritty, moody, YA fiction. If Fifty Shades wouldn't fit the bill, would The Darlings of Orange County?

-Natalie Wright's YA

Read the full review by author Natalie Wright or watch the video interview about this sexy n' silly tale.


"Especially, I think, as summer comes up, this is a great beach read. It's a fabulous book to get on your Kindle. You'll be laughing out loud on the beach, so just beware you might look a little bit weird, laughing to yourself!"

-Natalie Wright's YA: Writer Chat Wednesdays

"Still in the process of reading this book. Had to stop for a few to wipe up the milk that shot out of my nose. Warning: do not read this book while having cookies and milk!"

-Gregory Allen, Napa Fantasy Review

"Thanks for the love! We are stoked!"


"I grew up in Southern California and every time I read your book I can feel the ocean breeze and smell the salt air. What witty descriptions of the odd nature of the O.C."

-Michele Lim-Sanders, M.D. (NorCal)

"Ch. 60. ROFL!" "Done. Omg! L.o.v.e.! So, so funny!"

-Angelea Bruce, RB Vino & Libri Chicks

"The story starts very-Hemingway, with longer sentences full of description."

Meet The Darlings

The Darlings of Orange County

The sexy, cashmere beaches of southern California aren't always what they seem. The dirty little secret here is what it takes to survive. Everyone has a trick up their silk sleeve. Liz Lemon meets Parker Posey, Veronica Darling is smart enough to know what it takes and is willing to soil her soul to bring Hollywood to the California Riviera. The Darlings of Orange County is a salacious, hilarious, harrowing romp chock full of eco-terrorism, horse-racing scandals, weed deals and the obligatory lipstick-lesbian affair that inevitably leads to murder. It all climaxes in a white-knuckled, glitzy, celebrity-stacked Laguna Beach Film Premiere that spells success for Veronica Darling and trouble for her friends and family.

Whether fighting to end slavery, arguing for freedom of the press or scheming to end a duel, Miss Savannah does so with wit and persistence. Read more to meet her best friends and accomplices: Ichabod Wolfgang and Dante Marcus Pritchen. Prepare to also meet pirates, a Venetian fox and an Irish gull, The Commodore!

Hannah Hart, ghost dame of the Hotel del Coronado

So, here's the low down, all you Joes and Janes ... I'm Hannah Hart, dead girl. Don't fret, it's actually a sweet dish being dead. Having perished in 1934 in a terrifically vicious accessories incident with actress Ida Lupino, I reside where I died: San Diego's gorgeous Hotel del Coronado. It ain't a bad gig at all, really! Great weather, swanky guests (not to mention a few fellow ghosties), amazing amenities, my own private turret overlooking the sea and all the java juice and giggle water I can handle; plus, these bartenders know how to make a Planter's Punch like nobody's business! See, I've been waiting for this Internet thing forever ... now, instead of slamming doors and moving lamps, I get to wag my tongue all I like at

Abyssinia, kids!
