But before she is able to completely overcome her heartbreak over Grant, the past catches up with her bringing new challenges and more dark secrets.

Teaser Thursday – Flame by Erin Noelle @authorenoelle @InkSlingerPR

Teaser Thursday- Enjoy!

Releasing August 6th

flame5

I’m soaring.
After years of hard work and determination, I am exactly where I want to be in life. As the top ranked Freestyle Motocross rider in the world, I have more money than I could ever dream of spending and gorgeous women throwing themselves at me in every city I land. I have everything I could ever want.
Everything except her.
While in Breckenridge for my best friend’s wedding, I was introduced to Dakota Shavell, a friend of the bride-to-be, and from the moment our blue gazes met, sparks flew.
What I initially intended to be a single steamy night together turned into a scorching two week road trip to New Orleans with a sassy-mouthed blonde. Being between her legs gave me a bigger adrenaline rush than I’d ever gotten from flying through the air while straddling a bike.
It was supposed to just be fun, a good time. I planned to walk away unchanged.
But it was more. Feelings I never intended to have got involved, and I’ll never be the same.
Yet, I still walked away.
Except now I’m injured and my outlook has changed. Priorities have become clear.
And I’m going back to reclaim her…to show her that together we can make the fire between us burst into flames.
***Though Flame is the second book in the Fire on the Mountain Series, it is an interconnected stand alone novel***

What’s In The Author’s Bag? Kyra Davis reveals…. @_KyraDavis

what's in the author's bag banner for blog

 

Ever wondered what’s inside your favorite author’s bag/purse/backpack?  Do they carry books, their iPads, coupons, inspirational pictures, etc.?

Kyra Davis revealed the contents of her purse for all to see and explained why she carries them.

Kyra Davis bag

Okay, from left to right:

1) I always carry a compact mirror, because in the age of camera phones you never know when you have to check to see if there’s spinach in your teeth.

2) I have my wallet for obvious reasons.

3) My phone that has my entire life on it from my schedule to my pictures to my music, ebooks, so on and so forth. I carry floss (see #1 for why)

4) La Mer lip balm, the best lip balm on EARTH

5) Nars lipstick in Tanganyka

6) Chanel Gossimer lipgloss in Scintillantes for when I want a little shine

7) L’Ocitane hand cream so my hands only age three times faster than my face, rather than ten times faster.

8) Allergy meds because you never know when a wind will pick up, blow some pollen in your face and drive you into sinus-pressure hell.

9) Hiding under my mirror is my Advil, for those times when the allergy meds aren’t enough to stave off a sinus headache.

10) Under all of it is a packet of kleenex because my allergies are the bane of my existence. It’s really very sad.

Release Day & Giveaway – Racing The Sun by Karina Halle @metalblonde

 

From the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of Where Sea Meets Sky comes a new adult novel about a young woman who becomes a nanny in Capri and falls for her charges’ bad-boy brother.

When I’m traveling, I feel like the secret to my life, to myself, to really becoming, is one step ahead. It’s in the next destination, the next town I get lost in, the next stranger I talk to. It’s always next but never here . . .

After six months of backpacking and soul-searching across the world, Amber MacLean is flat broke. There are worse places for a twentysomething to be stuck than the Amalfi Coast, but the only way she can earn enough money for a plane ticket home to California is to teach English to two of the brattiest children she has ever met.

It doesn’t help that the children are under the care of their brooding older brother, ex-motorcycle racer Desiderio Larosa. Darkly handsome and oh-so-mysterious, the young master of the crumbling villa tests Amber’s patience and will at every turn—not to mention her hormones.

When her position turns into a full-time nanny gig, Amber grows dangerously closer to the enigmatic recluse. But can she give up the certainty of home for someone whose closely guarded heart feels a world apart from her own?

Susi Interviews Kyra Davis, author of Just One Lie @_KyraDavis

Susi Interviews Kyra Davis, author of Just One Lie

 

I am super excited to share this interview with you today.  I am a huge Kyra Davis fan.  Her writing is incredible.  If you haven’t read any of her work yet, you must.

author interview banner

Susi:  How long have you been writing?

Kyra:  Twelve years now.

Susi:  When did your passion for writing begin?

Kyra:  I didn’t start writing until I was in the middle of my divorce from my first husband. It was a difficult time. I was frustrated, anxious and angry. So, inspired by Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, I channeled all my violent impulses and wrote a murder mystery and killed off a bunch of men. Seriously though, it was while writing that book that I realized I had found a new direction for my life. Writing saved me. That murder mystery ended up being my first published novel, Sex, Murder And A Double Latte.

Susi: How many books have you published?

Kyra:  Just One Lie will make eleven.

Susi:  Are you interested in writing any other genres?

Kyra:  So far I’ve published Women’s fiction (So Much For My Happy Ending), chick-lit murder mysteries (the Sophie Katz series) and now romance (the Just One Night and Pure Sin series).  I might write a historical one of these days or maybe a fantasy novel. But for the moment I’m just so grateful to be able to write in those three genres.

Susi:  What books are you currently working on?

Kyra:  I am working on both a romance and a woman’s fiction novel right now as well as some Hollywood stuff but I’m not ready to talk much about all that yet. Still, I promise to keep you updated!

Susi:  When do you write?  Do you have any specific writing routines?

Kyra: I try to write during somewhat regular business hours, wrapping things up by seven. That way I can spend time with my family. But when a deadline’s looming I’ll work until all hours of the night. Just depends.

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

Kyra:  Well I’m a huge reader. I love to travel and go to museums (both science and art museums). Eating out, taking my dog on long walks, dancing, my husband and I have pool parties for our friends fairly regularly. Oh and I like going out with my girlfriends, seeing Magic Mike XXL, seeing Magic Mike XXL again, seeing Magic Mike XXL one more time…

Susi:  What inspires you to write?  Music, a muse?  Who was your muse for Robert Dade?

Kyra:  I have a Spotify soundtrack for each book that I play while writing. I choose songs that fit the tone of the manuscript I’m working on. In Just One Lie the protagonist is the lead singer of an indie band and she’s constantly listening to one song or another, so I listened to the songs she listened/danced to while writing those scenes.

As for Robert…He’s really his own man BUT it’s true that my now husband invited to fly me out to Vegas after what was basically our first date…and that he played high stakes blackjack and even offered me my own suite at the Venetian (since I barely knew the guy). It ended up being a very decadent, indulgent and extravagant weekend.  At the time it felt like I was in the middle of a story. So I did use that trip as a jumping off point for Dade.

Susi:  How would you describe yourself as a writer?

Kyra:  I write character driven stories regardless of whether I’m writing a romance or a murder mystery. And I’m meticulous about my prose.

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

Kyra:  Depends on the book. I really should have at least four months but honestly, I miss the days when one book a year was the standard. That really allowed authors to research their subject matter and the settings of their novels and develop exceptionally unique and creative stories.

Susi:  Describe a typical writing day for Kyra Davis.

Kyra:  I turn on my music and start by reading a chapter of a book that inspires me. Something exceptionally well written. Then I just write and write and write!

Susi:  Do you have any advice to offer to new  writers?

Kyra:  Aspiring writers: If you’re not already active on social media, now’s the time to start. Maybe even start a blog. And if you’re writing genre fiction, look into self-publishing. Today publishing houses want to see that you can get your own following and create excitement about your work. If your self-published novel is a success the publishing houses will be lining up to offer you a contract. And if they know that you are capable of being successful without them they’re even more likely to give you the promotional support and attention you’ll need to be an even bigger success with them.

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

Kyra:  After my first book, Sex, Murder And A Double Latte, was a success I got complacent. I took my eye off the ball in regards to publicity and wasn’t as proactive as I needed to be in order to get the word out about the sequel, Passion, Betrayal and Killer Highlights.

Pet Peeve

I absolutely love my family, but why can’t any of them figure out how to properly load a dishwasher?!

First thing you notice about a person

Their smile (or lack thereof).

Hidden talents

I know how to work it on a dance floor!

Prized possession

My grandfather found a seahorse washed up on the beach, brought it home, used it to make a mold and then melted down some silver scraps he was able to get his hands on to make a seahorse necklace for my grandmother. It’s now mine and it means the world to me.

Fave drink

Toss up between vodka and coffee. Depends on the time of day.

Fave TV Show

Probably Game Of Thrones (although it got REALLY dark this season)

Favorite Male Actor

My husband’s a director and screenwriter, which means we’re friends with some amazingly talented celebrity actors. They’re really wonderful, sensitive people…which means I can’t answer that question without getting in trouble.

Favorite Female Actress

See above.

Favorite Movie

Toss up between The Contender and Nothing But The Truth.

Any parting words from the author….

In many ways, I think Just One Lie is the most romantic book I’ve ever written. A sexy, edgy (at times dark), modern day fairytale. I’m really interested in seeing the readers reviews, good and bad, to find out if they agree!

Thank you Kyra for taking time out of your busy schedule.  It was awesome getting to know more about you and I am sure your fans will agree. And having just finished Just One Lie, I agree.  I absolutely loved it.  My full review is coming up on blog later this week.

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…

Excerpt-Banner

 “We need to talk.” With a quick movement Hudson punched a card into the control panel and the elevator jerked to a halt.

Allie’s eyes darted to the panel and her spine straightened. “We talked at the gallery.”

“That wasn’t a conversation.” More like verbal sparring.

“I said all I needed to say.” She appeared to be completely composed, but Hudson could see the rise and fall of her chest, the white-knuckle grip on her bag.

“You may have unloaded, but hell if I have. And no matter what it takes you’re going to hear me out. Even if it means keeping this godforsaken elevator stopped all fucking day.” He tried to remind himself that anger would get him nowhere. Calm, levelheaded domination was the key to pressing the advantage, except he was way past that. With her he felt like he was gripping sand and every grain was slipping through his fingers.

“Stop trying to control me, Hudson.” Allie turned and lifted her chin. The anger was gone and in its place was a mask of complete indifference. Goddamn, it shredded him. He’d take anger over apathy any day.

He took a deep breath. She was going to ride this facade like the Macy’s Day Parade, marching through their little exchange as if they were nothing more than business partners forced into a resentful coexistence. He had to get her to drop her guard, to let him in. And if pissing her off was what it took to incite a reaction, then so be it.

“It’s never been that way between us and you know it, Alessandra.” Hudson flashed a slight smirk as he prepared to drop the H-bomb. “Well, except for the bedroom. And if memory serves, you enjoyed it.”

He braced himself, expecting a slap to light his face on fire, but instead her eyes dilated and fixated on his mouth. Her lips parted and her breath quickened. He had her. No matter how unaffected she pretended to be, she couldn’t help but respond to him. And the longer they stood mere inches apart, the more desire took over and became a downright menace.

            Never one to miss an opportunity, Hudson reassessed on the fly. He stepped closer and his voice dropped to a low, seductive murmur. “Is that what it will take for you to hear me out?” He swept a hand across her collarbone and up the side of her neck. “You, tied to my bed?”


Susi's 5 star review bannerMy Review

It’s not every day that I fall in love with a series the way I did with this one. Remind Me, book 1 in the Chasing Fire series was an amazing debut for this dynamic author duo. I enjoyed that book immensely but, Release Me was even more amazing!

First of all, if you haven’t read the first book, get on your eReader and download it now. To thoroughly understand this series, you must read book 1. At the end of that book, Allie discovered much about her parents, her ex-fiancée and Hudson. Release Me, book 2 starts off right where Remind Me ends.

Tragedy strikes changing both Allie’s personal and professional life. There is much for Allie to deal with. An emergency board meeting names both Allie and Hudson to joint CEO positions where they must work together.

While Allie may have freedom from her parents, who enjoyed making life decisions for her, she now needs to prove herself to keep Ingram Media alive. With Hudson as her new partner, trust issues arise.

I love Allie and Hudson so much. They were perfectly written. Allie shows her strengths in this book in many areas. She takes command of her professional responsibilities, maintains a steady friendship with Harper and establishes a humorous relationship with her new assistant Colin. Oh, you will love Colin. He is the ideal assistant.

Hudson, sigh….. continues to be the total alpha male and excels at the “commanding alpha.” I mean seriously, if commanding alpha was an Olympic sport, I would be on the sidelines holding up that “10” sign and cheering for sure.

I think what I loved most about Hudson in this story is that he demonstrated how multifaceted he really is. He is gorgeous, sexy as fuck, powerful, forgiving, romantic, commanding, funny, and ultimately loving. It is truly evident that Hudson will do anything for Allie making him such a complete man/character. You’ll see, you will love him even more than in Remind Me.  I promise.

After misunderstandings have been clarified, this couple finally gets back together. Let me warn you, it’s the exquisitely written intense and romantic moments planned by Mr. Chase that will heat up your eReaders and may require a glass of water or two.

There were many scenes that I absolutely adored in this book making it quite difficult to pick a favorite. I loved the elevator scene for its intensity. I loved Christmas for many reasons. But the funniest, while sexiest part was cookie decorating with Hudson. I totally pictured that scene in my mind.   And finally, there is the Orient Express scene. Holy Wow!

Important characters from Remind Me are back. Strong sibling love is truly evident in this book from moments in Nick’s rehab to Christmas Eve/Day. Those moments proved how tender and lovable Hudson could be. Harper, Allie’s “BFF” as Hudson calls her, has an important role in this book as well. She is not only supporting of Allie but protective in a way only a best friend could be.

This book series is at the top of my favorites and I know I mentioned this before when I reviewed Remind Me, but it is true. I could picture my favorite male model, David Gandy, the muse, throughout every brilliantly written scene.

Release Me is another “unputdownable” emotional read with forgiveness, passion, new beginnings and ultimately love.

As for the ending, without giving anything away, readers will be left with another concerning cliffhanger.  Why is October so far away?

I can’t wait to read Reclaim Me, book 3 in this trilogy to see how their story ends.

I gave this book 5 sizzling stars! 

The Chasing Fire Series is perfect Summer reading and I highly recommend it.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The Espionage Effect - The Blindfold Pic Quote

Excerpt

When I woke, the remnants of an exhausting dream kept a sticky hold on me. Heavy eyelids prevented me from taking in my surroundings too quickly. After several minutes of opening then shutting my eyes, two slow yawns, and one lazy stretch, awareness of someone else in the room pricked at my senses, and I finally pushed myself upright.

Alec. I inhaled his scent before I spotted his silhouette across the room.

At some point, he’d turned off the bathroom lights, swathing the room in darkness once again. Only a dim blue-white glow that emanated from beside him cast light into the suite.

He sat at the large desk. His features, focused in concentration, were bathed in the soft illumination from a penlight affixed in some way to the top corner of an open laptop. As I couldn’t recall any baggage thrown over the balcony with his unorthodox means of arrival, the laptop had to be Anna’s.

Curious, I pushed off the bed. My bare feet landed toe first onto the cool floor tiles. I padded closer in silence, not wanting to distract him.

“You slept like the dead.” His comment came without inflection of judgment, merely statement of fact. And he didn’t move from his studious position. Nor did he attempt to hide what he was looking at.

My pulse accelerated as I smoothed my hands down the thin cotton tank top and boxer shorts I still wore, my thoughts drifting over the reasons I’d slept so soundly. “I suppose orgasmic endorphins followed by a meal heavy in carbs and fat will do it.”

At that, he swung his gaze my way, arching one of his brows. “Orgasmic endorphins?”

I paused. The toes of my right foot slid just over the edge of the first step that led down to the sitting area. I curled them down over, rooting myself as I swayed under his sudden scrutiny.

Even in the dim light, I could see the heat in his gaze. I certainly felt it, my skin beginning to warm from the second his attention had shifted toward me. “Well, actually, many chemicals accompany orgasm: endorphins, dopamine, testosterone, norepinephrine, serotonin…oxytocin.”

The muscles at one corner of his mouth twitched, tugging his lips into a sinful smirk as his gaze drifted a few inches lower. “That sexy mouth of yours keeps spouting intellectual factoids. I keep wondering what it’ll take to render you speechless.”

My mind froze. “Speechless?”

A full smile now played at his lips. “Oh, yes. I’m taking it as a personal challenge to blow your mind to the point you cannot describe an event that happens between us with mere words.”

“Oh.” I didn’t know what to say. Couldn’t fathom it. Then, I began to want it…

“See. You get the idea. We’ll leave it there for a while.”

Why? To let the anticipation build? Already, my heart rate quickened, my breath shallowed, my…mind analyzing the possibilities of orgasmic chemicals once again.

He turned back toward the desk with an unaffected expression, carefully smoothing his hands over a large, thin paper he’d spread across the surface—as if he hadn’t just dropped a nuclear bomb between us and set the timer for detonation.
