RELEASE ME
Chasing Fire #2
Ann Marie Walker & Amy K. Rogers
Releasing July 21st, 2015
Berkley/Intermix
 

The second in the “seriously sexy and sinfully steamy”* Chasing Fire series, about a pain too deep to forgive and a passion too hot to forget…

Alessandra Sinclair knows that Hudson Chase is the last man she should want. The boy from the wrong side of the tracks has grown into a man who would do anything to get ahead, even if it means breaking Allie’s heart. But whenever she’s near him, the attraction between them is undeniable. And now that they’re working together, keeping her distance from Hudson is almost as impossible as keeping her feelings in check…

Hudson already lost Allie once and he refuses to lose her again. He’s determined to use their new business partnership to rekindle the spark he knows is still there. Only the closer he gets to winning her over, the clearer it becomes there are still secrets that could tear them apart for good…

Pre-Order
 

Hudson’s eyes flared. “Taunting me?” he asked. But he didn’t wait for an answer. Instead he lurched forward in a few powerful strides, palming the back of the couch with his free hand and leaping over it.

Shit.

With her heart pounding, Allie took off in the only available direction. When she reached the stairs, Hudson was right behind her, taking them two at a time. She gasped as his fingers grazed her hip before dropping to catch her ankle.

He yanked her down as he prowled up her body, his hips surging against her backside as he lowered his mouth to her ear. “I’ve caught you, baby.” He buried his hand in her hair and pulled her head to the side. She moaned when his lips found the spot on her neck that never failed to drive her wild. Pleasure shot through her as he sucked on the sensitive skin and she writhed beneath him. “Now, what shall I do to you?”

Allie’s lips parted on a raged breath. “Whatever you want.”

This just in…The latest on Kendall Ryan’s new book @KendallRyan1

News from Kendall Ryan

My upcoming book has been tentatively titled The Dominant, and I’ve begun to question if that’s the right title. The Dominant reads hard core BDSM read? This book is totally not. In fact, the characters have taken a different turn and it has more angst and feels, along with the sexy. There are *very* light BDSM elements. A few toys, and lots of sexy.

At its core, it’s a forbidden love story about a man who fell for his best friend’s little sister years ago, and now she’s back in town, coming off a bad breakup looking for a little fun and a lot of rebound sex. He’s had to lock-down his heart, but agrees to help her – on his terms!

With this I have decided it needed a new title to fully describe the book at its best.

Releasing on July 14 is

SINFULLY MINE

SYNOPSIS:

She was forbidden.

 

I didn’t care.

 

As my best friend’s little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits. Tempting as sin, and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I’d behaved like a gentleman.

 

I didn’t.

 

When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she’d grow into, I have to force myself to remember I’m different from the man she once knew. I’m colder. Harder. And for good reason.

 

With my heart on lockdown, and my hands aching to touch her, I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time.

 

No strings. No attachments.

 

And definitely no falling for her again.

 

This is book two in the Lessons with the Dom series, following The Gentleman Mentor. Both are complete standalone novels featuring sexy Dominant men you’re sure to fall in love with. Enjoy!

EXCERPT

Up until this moment, sex been a meaningless physical act meant to quiet the need raging inside me, nothing more than joyless weekend hookups with girls whose names I wouldn’t recall in the morning. But Macey wasn’t just the girl I’d grown to love, she was also my best friend’s little sister and a virgin—a combination that was completely off-limits.

Blog Tour – Bride Without a Groom by Amy Lynch @amylynchauthor

 

Blog Tour

Bride Without a Groom

by Amy Lynch

bride without a groom cover

 

Rebecca has chosen the most luscious, five tiered, wedding cake – as featured in Hello! Magazine. The engagement ring that she has selected is celebrity inspired. The wedding singer is on speed dial. He doesn’t usually do Michael Bolton, but as it’s for a first dance he’ll make an exception. Father Maguire is checking dates for the parish church as we speak. The deposit on the white sand honeymoon is paid for in full on Barry’s card. Sure, the resort was good enough for Pierce Brosnan when he tied the knot. She has fallen for an ivory lace couture gown that is to die for. The down payment may require her to sell a left kidney, but it will be worth it. Isn’t that why you have two?


There’s one teeny problem. It’s nothing, really. No need to panic! It’s just that Barry has yet to propose. Says he’s not ready! He can be a bit of a kill joy that way. It’s time to face the harsh reality – she is a bride without a groom.

Truth be told, Barry’s had enough. There’s only so much wedding talk that one man can take. Discovering the credit card statement is the final straw. Now he’s leaving for a conference in Bangkok and frankly, he’s looking forward to the peace and quiet. He says he needs time to think about their relationship. As the Tiger beer flows and the tie loosens, his colleague Shelley is providing more than a shoulder for him to cry on. Maybe Shelley is right. Maybe Rebecca only wants the big day.

Back in Dublin, Rebecca worries. Maybe she has pushed Barry too far this time. Best mates Pam and Emer are on hand for counseling and cocktails. With the help of family, friends and a well stocked drinks cabinet, Rebecca puts her cunning plan together. Operation ‘Win Back Barry’ is in full swing. She needs to convince Barry that she’s not crazy – just crazy about him. But wait… who is the mysterious woman that is so keen to talk to her, and what is it that Barry needs to get off his chest?

 

My Review

Entertaining, funny and a must read for rom/com lovers everywhere.

 

Here’s a review I’m excited to share.   Bride Without  A Groom by Amy Lynch is a story that all rom/com lovers will enjoy and must read.  So yes, I highly recommend this story to you. I loved it for many reasons but probably so much because Amy created a character that reminded me of someone I know.

Do you know that one woman who has her wedding/future all planned out minus the groom?  Well, in this story, you will meet Rebecca, the bride without the groom.  Rebecca is a most lovable humorous character who has gone to great lengths to plan her perfect wedding to Barry, her longtime boyfriend.  She has fine taste, and knows exactly what she wants in her wedding.  But, there’s a tiny problem, Barry doesn’t propose as expected.

This story takes place over a short time span, while Barry is away on a business trip. This time away from Barry proves to be packed with humor and a most enjoyable story.  I’m keeping my review as spoiler free as possible but I’ll tell you this, be prepared for a bride without a groom that is totally obsessed with the “I do” moment.  This story gets real, gets funnier and well….  read the book and find out.

So, you know what to do, head on over to Amazon and “one click” this baby.  Set aside the time, grab a glass of wine and enjoy Amy Lynch’s Bride Without A Groom.

I gave this book 5 stars.

Susi Interviews – Michelle Day, Author @MichelleYDay

Susi Interviews Michelle Day, Author

Prodigal Son, Father & Son, Cain’s Way

 

I love interviewing my favorite authors.  For today’s author interview, I bring you Michelle Day, author of Prodigal Son, Father & Son and Cain’s Way.

 

Susi:  How long have you been writing?

Michelle:  I started the first draft of Prodigal Son at age fifteen. As I’m now in my forties, that’s quite some time.

Susi:    When did your passion for writing begin?

Michelle: At secondary school. I was one of the few who enjoyed writing essays.

Susi:  What is your favorite genre to write?

Michelle: I would have to say that depends on where my head is at. I thoroughly enjoyed writing Cain’s Way but I equally love the Jensens.

Susi:  What books are you currently working on?

Michelle: I am working on book 3 of the Jensen Family Series which will be called Wayward Son and I’m also penning the second Tate Pack Novella which is called Loren’s Salvation. I’ve also just unearthed something that I started back in 2012. It’s another change of direction for me and it’s called Switch. I will concentrate a little more on that one once Wayward Son and Loren’s Salvation are out.

Susi:  Wow, You are a busy woman.  When do you write?  Any specific routines?

Michelle:  I have to be in a certain mindset to write and my characters need to be talking to me. I can write almost anywhere and don’t mind distractions, just don’t try to read over my shoulder. That’s a major irritation for me.

Susi:  When not writing, what are your hobbies or interests?

Michelle:  I read. A lot. I’ll read anything. I also like to research things which may happen to my characters and can get very involved in that.

Susi:  What inspires you to write?  Music, a muse?

Michelle:  I always have music going. Certain tracks will inspire scenes or character traits. I also find it useful to have a muse. It’s always good to have something nice to look at.

Susi:  Who were your muses for the Prodigal Son and Father & Son characters?

Michelle:  For Paul, of course, Bernardo Velasco and for Gavin,  Taylor Kitsch. I am still working on a muse for Matt. I can see him in my minds eye but he’s yet to take a physical form.

Susi:  Who was your muse for Cain’s Way?

Michelle:  Cain came to me in the shower with his description. I would have trouble putting a face to his character but once the picture was found that is on the cover, I knew that he was Cain.

Susi:  How long does it generally take you to write a book?

Michelle:  That depends on the book. Cain took one month which is a record for me. Father and Son took two years. I’m currently on a roll and being productive so I’d say typically for a full length novel, somewhere between nine to twelve months.

Susi:  Describe a typical writing day for Michelle Day.

Michelle:  Each day is different. Some days I will write all day. Others, I’ll write for an hour and be done with it. I do always start by going back over what was written the previous day and trying to pick up any spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors before I start to write again.

Susi:  Do you have any advice to offer to any indie authors?

Michelle:  Keep at it. It’s not always easy and I’ve felt like giving up especially as sales are low but I love my characters and have faith in them. I think as long as you believe in what you write, you will find your niche and with it an audience.

Susi:  Your biggest mistake as a writer? If any?

Michelle:  Not asking for help. I still don’t like to and as a result, I don’t know many people in the book world.

 

Rapid Fire

 

Pet Peeve:  the your /you’re error

First thing you notice about a person:  Eyes on meeting. Bum as they walk away.

Hidden talents:   I don’t think I have any.

Currently Reading:  Conviction. Nicole Edwards

Fave drink:   Lime milkshake

Fave TV Show:  Currently, Poldark

Fave Book: Black Beauty is a story that will always stay with me.

Fave Movie:  Fast and Furious franchise

 

Any parting words from the author…

Watch this space, I have plenty of things planned for the Jensens. Can you imagine Paul with grandchildren?

 

Oh…  Wow! I can’t wait for more Paul.  As a grandfather, oh my!

Thank you Michelle for taking time from your busy schedule for this interview.  Happy Writing!

~Susi

Release Day Blitz-Review & Giveaway – Salvation by Stephanie John @StephJohnWrites

// Photo Banner featuring the cover of Salvation, a contemporary romance novel by author Stephanie John

Photo of the cover of the contemporary romance novel, Salvation, by author Stephanie John

Title: Salvation

Author: Stephanie John

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Series: The Heal Me Series, Book 1

 

 

Synopsis

Green on green manA chance meeting turned my world inside out.

Intelligent, sexy, and rich. With a dash of roguish charm and a cocksure smile, Nathan Blake is the ultimate fantasy. He can have any woman he wants with only a glance.

And he wants me.

My past has left me broken and humiliated, wary of men like him. I cut myself off from the pain, moving thousands of miles away to escape every reminder, determined to start anew.

I’ve been second best before. It isn’t happening again.

One kiss and I’m caught under his spell, drawn to him with every breath I take.

I can’t resist.

The passion that explodes between us becomes an intense connection neither of us thought we’d share.

Or need.

The suffering inside me reflects his – a pain I know he feels, but can’t bring himself to reveal.

I have no idea his love can heal me – that mine can heal him…

…if only I can let down my guard for him and trust.

Photo quote from Salvation, a contemporary adult romance by Steph John

Review

First of all, congratulations Stephanie on a brilliant debut!  There are so many things I loved about your book especially the theme,  a second chance on love.  Your characters as well as your story were well written and very real.  I love it when I can read a book and connect with characters the way I did in Salvation.  Kara is beautiful, independent, but yet reserved due to past heartache.  Nate, her boss, is handsome, powerful, rich and also reserved in his own way.  Both have endured some type of pain in the past.  Together they discover the power of love.

Throughout the book, the characters learn about each other and grow.  Nate is Kara’s boss.  Kara dismisses his advances at first knowing that work relationships can be devastating. But, Kara gives in and finally goes out with Nate.  I loved that Nate was so blown away by Kara.  Kara truly rocked his world.

I can’t say enough about Mai, Kara’s friend.  She was funny, a great friend and most of all her biggest supporter.  You will love her as you read more about her.

The detailed descriptions in this book are another reason I enjoyed it so much.  I pictured this story scene by scene.   The sexy banter between Nate and Kara was fun making them so likable.  These characters were truly enjoyable to read about.

I cannot end my review without discussing the sex scenes.  Wow!  There are plenty of exquisitely written scenes in this book.  Nate is the quite the guy. You’ll see what I mean.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next book in the series.  I was left making my own predictions about Kara and Nate’s future. They are a couple I am definitely cheering for.  I hope it’s available soon.

5 stars

I gave this book 5 stars! A fantastic debut!

I received an ARC in exchange for a review.

Excerpt

When I joined him, he was leaning against the sink staring at the wall, his features twisted in annoyance. “It’s important to me,” I encouraged, setting his empty bottle on the counter beside him. I pressed a hand to his shoulder. “I want to know all about you like you do me.”

“Yeah,” he scoffed, shrugging me off, “except you won’t let me in either.” The ferocity of him tossing the plates into the sink with a crash panicked me. My ears began to ring with the sound of my heart thudding in my chest. Nate glanced sideways, his face set. “You’re keeping secrets, too.”

I winced at the harsh truth of his words. What right did I have, asking him to open up when I couldn’t do it myself?

“Kara.” His fingertips drifted over my cheekbone. I jumped, taken aback by the veneration in his touch and the gentleness of his voice. “I don’t want to argue, to spoil an idyllic couple of days.”

I hated seeing him like this, so lost and bewildered, out of control. It went against so much of what I treasured about him. Yet it gave me comfort to know he wasn’t just an ideal high on a pedestal, completely out of reach. Nate was human, and he was here, with me.

I stepped closer and rubbed his arm. His eyes were mesmerising, the pupils almost fully dilated. My breath caught when I saw the depth of his feelings swimming in them as he stared back at me. The tiny tick of his jaw pulsed as he gritted his teeth. “I’m trying to do right by you. Trying my utmost to shelter you.”

My body tensed. “From what?”

Nate caressed my face, seeking and finding strength the way I did from him. His eyes were fretful and undecided. God, what had happened to make him behave so out of character?

I wrapped my arms around him and pressed my cheek to his chest. His heart pounded frantically. His shower gel still lingered on me, and mine on his skin. The two scents, woody and almond merged together, giving me an inevitable sense of calm and assurance. “What happened in New York?”

About Stephanie

Avatar photo representing author Stephanie JohnMost days, you’ll find Stephanie John on a yacht, wearing a very skimpy bikini, drinking champagne, eating chocolate and never gaining weight. When she isn’t asleep and dreaming, in real life you’re more likely to find her at the school gates, wearing whatever she dragged on that morning, drinking copious amounts of coffee. She still eats chocolate, though — everyone has their vices, right? Somehow, amidst the chaos of full-time mummy duties, she manages to write. Contemporary romance has always been her favourite genre to read for as long as she can remember (age-appropriate, of course).

Never in a million years did it occur to her to write one of her own. Now, she couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
