ABOUT “POKERGEIST”:

Sometimes life, as well as death, is about second chances. Luckless Telly Martin doesn’t have a clue. An awful gambler trying to scrape by as a professional poker player, he becomes the protégé of world famous poker champion Clutch Henderson. The only catch…Clutch is a ghost. Telly and Clutch must navigate the seedy gambling underbelly of Las Vegas learning to trust each other in order to win the elusive International Series of Poker, repair their shattered personal relationships and find redemption in this life and the hereafter.

“Cash proves to be highly capable of juxtaposing the absurd and the mundane, creating a thoroughly enjoyable ghost story along the lines of The Canterville Ghost (1891) and Topper (1926)…Bet on this funny, well-written tale of second chances.” – Kirkus Review

#BookTour One Poor Choice by Deanndra Hall

One Poor Choice, The Citadel Series, Book 2
by: Deanndra Hall
Release Date: October 20, 2015
Erotic Romance/Dark BDSM
Tour Host: DRC Promotions

One smart man. One naïve, desperate woman. One poor choice. And a descent into a hell most people could never imagine.

All Jared Calhoun wants is a good time.

And he’s had plenty of those. He’s not looking for anything else when something, or someone, he never expected comes across his radar. And the former model standing in the Walters’ kitchen trips every trigger and lights up every nerve ending – maybe more than he‘d like.

Bernadette Guillory’s looking for her place in the world.

Cast out of modeling and living with relatives, Bernie’s desperate for a job. Good-looking, single Jared becomes her staunchest ally in her search for a better life, despite her brother-in-law’s threats. Jared says all he wants with her is some fun, but her vulnerability and innocence tug at his tender heartstrings, and soon they’re far more than friends.

Bernie’s search for a job ends in the wrong place, and when Jared finds out, everything she’s built for herself crashes down around her. Deported, broke, and alone, she’s vulnerable to all kinds of people. When she vanishes, Jared has to decide if love really can conquer all. And that decision won’t matter if they can’t find her before her poor choice leads to a fate far worse than death.

The second book in the first spinoff series from the Love Under Construction series, One Poor Choice will show you the darkness that can engulf a soul when it loses its way. It’s a story ripped from the headlines, a story for only the strongest stomachs and the most loving, forgiving hearts.

WARNING: Strong, graphic sexual situations, including sexual slavery and assault. For readers 18+ only.

He finally broke away and looked into her eyes. What he saw there startled him. Her eyes were soft and sweet, and her lips were swollen and flushed from his persistent kisses. She was like a siren, pulling him in, and he could feel the current from her body washing over him. What was it with this girl? He’d have to be very careful. She could get under his skin before he realized what was happening, and he couldn’t have that. All he could hope was that he wouldn’t have the same effect on her, but what if he did? What would happen? He wanted to keep his distance. That was how he operated, had to operate, and changing that wasn’t an option.

About The Author

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a writer . . .and it has served me well. I wrote for local publications, wrote marketing and advertising materials, wrote for academic publications, and eventually grew jaded with the writing profession as I often watched others take credit for my hard work. I retreated into the world of 3-D art in the fiber and textile mediums and hid out in a world of colors and textures. But, truth is, there was always a story or two in my head. It wasn’t until Nikki and I met in my imagination that I decided it was time to let those stories out, and I’m glad I did. My readers now get to enjoy the fruits of my imagination and, believe me, it runs wild!

On the personal side, I’ve been happily married to my lover and best friend for over thirty years, and I have two wonderful adult kids who’ve blessed me with two excellent choices of life partners. When I’m not writing, I’m playing with my threecrazy little dogs, hiking in a local recreation area, kayaking, working out at the gym, tending my herbs, cooking, or doing some kind of research.

But I’d really rather be writing!

Going Against Type by Sharon Black Review Tour

Going Against Type by Sharon Black - 500

Contemporary Romance / Romantic Comedy
Date Published: September 23, 2014
Publisher: Tirgearr Publishing
 
Set against the backdrop of Dublin newspapers, Going Against Type is the story of two rival newspaper columnists, who write under pen names, and unknowingly fall for their arch enemy: each other.

Sports writer Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Regan gets an opportunity to write a new column under the pen name Side Swipe, and is soon drawn into a war of words and wit with a rival paper’s gossip columnist, The Squire,  getting readers and editors talking. When Charlotte meets Derry Cullinane, their attraction is instant. But as their relationship develops, they discover there’s more at stake than protecting their alter egos

Book Review

This book takes place in beautiful Ireland and it involves the romance of Charlotte, a sports writer, and Derry, a fashion writer, and they write for competitive newspapers. I loved the way the author used a female as a sports writer and a male as a fashion writer. It was intriguing to watch Charlotte, who knew more about sports then Derry, and Derry, who knew more about fashion then Charlotte, try to relate to one another. It was a nice twist to the book. There are other characters in the book as well that impact Derry and Charlotte’s relationship. Charlotte’s old high school mate, Fiona and husband, Jack.

Charlotte and Derry both have some baggage they are carrying around in some very heavy bags, which holds Charlotte back a lot throughout the book. (Girl, could use a bit of therapy) For once, I saw the male character being an actual good person and Charlotte was just too hard on him. Needless to say, I was Team #Derry.

What team will you be on????

Book Excerpt

‘Why are you so nervous Charlotte? It’s just a date!’
‘Oh come on Helen. The last guy I dated was Mr Uptight Conor, and before that I dated sports jocks. Derry is different. He’s Premier League status!’
‘And you’re Scumthorpe United? Take a look at yourself, woman!’
‘I’m not sure what he expects, but I’m not his type, Helen. I’m floundering.’
Helen caught Charlotte’s hands and forced her to meet her gaze.
‘Don’t you dare run yourself down Charlotte Regan. You’re intelligent and totally gorgeous! But you need to do one thing.’
‘What?’
‘Allow yourself to be a woman! How do I put this without you taking it the wrong way? Don’t talk sport all night. You are incredibly bossy when you start. Let Derry take charge a bit. Allow him to be a man!’
Charlotte blinked.
‘Sorry, I just time travelled to the 1950s for a moment. What were you saying?’
Helen smiled.
‘Charlotte! You like this guy. So give him a chance. Don’t send him to sleep with triathalon stats. If he wants that, he’ll go drinking with his mates.’
‘If his mates are anything like him, they probably wouldn’t know a sports stat from the price of heifers in Mullingar,’ Charlotte sighed. ‘Okay, I’ll bluff about fashion or something…’
*          *          *

‘So, did you get lucky?’ a deep voice drawled. Charlotte spun to find Mr Panama Hat grinning down at her. Bloody hell, she thought, smiling back despite herself. Any other man she knew would look utterly ridiculous in what seemed to be a tailor made, striped linen jacket and trousers, combined with that damned hat. But he carried it off with a self-confidence that bordered on swagger.
‘Yes actually, I did,’ she admitted, still smiling. ‘What about you?’
He grimaced. ‘I lost. My own fault. I took a flier on somebody else’s tip.’
Charlotte grinned sympathetically. ‘Oh?’
Mr Panama Hat shook his head, scowling briefly.
‘I read some bloody sports columnist from Ireland Today. Had a few winners earlier this week. As I said, it’s my own fault. I never normally bother with racing tips. Whoever it is, he obviously doesn’t know a horse from a three-legged stool.’
Charlotte swallowed hard.
‘So how much did you lose?’ she managed, trying to sound casual.
‘A thousand.’ He caught Charlotte’s horrified expression and laughed. ‘Hey, don’t look so worried! I’m a big boy.’
Charlotte stared at him in amazement. Who did that? Maybe he was a rich eccentric, the kind of guy who hung around the race courses, betting big. Not caring whether or not he won – or lost everything on the day.
That said, she was damned if she’d come clean!
‘So, do you normally gamble this recklessly Mr…?’ Charlotte trailed away meaningfully, biro poised over her notebook. He stuck out his hand, a warm smile forming.
‘Sorry, I should have introduced myself. I’m…’
‘Derry! Where have you been? They’re just about to start the judging. Com on darling, I have to go line up. I want you to be able to see!’
A tall blonde, wearing a rose pink knee-length dress with tiny matching jacket, pink stiletto slingback shoes and a dizzy spiral of cream and pink headwear, teetered over and clung to Derry’s arm. She looked, Charlotte thought, vaguely familiar. The blonde smiled tightly at Charlotte and then noticed her press badge.
‘Oooh you’re from the papers! Maybe I could talk to you when the judging’s over. Do you have a photographer with you?’ She didn’t wait for Charlotte to answer, but rushed on. ‘You’ll have to excuse us right now, ok?’
‘Of course, don’t let me delay me,’ Charlotte said, stepping back.
‘Wait,’ Derry began, shooting her a sudden intrigued look. ‘You’re not with Ireland Today, are you?’
Shit. Charlotte managed a surprised laugh.
‘U, yes,’ she squeaked. ‘I’m er, writing a piece on Ladies’ Day.’
‘Oh right.’ He frowned. ‘What about their Side Swipe columnist? Do you know him?’
Lie Charlotte. And do it well.
‘No. It’s being written anonymously. I think the writer works from home…’ She smiled brightly at him. Behind Derry, the blonde shot Charlotte a steely glare. Charlotte glanced one last time at Derry.
‘You should go. And I have to work. Nice to meet you.’ She turned and walked away.
