book blurb

Windy City Millionaire Devlin Stone is about to discover that love and revenge don’t mix.

Fifteen years ago my father went to jail for crime he didn’t commit. Now, I’m back to take revenge on the man who sent him there. He believes himself untouchable, and for the most part, he is. His daughter, however, is very touchable and well within my reach.

I remember her as a sweet kid, who took piano lessons from my mother. These days she’s a complicated woman, who has a knack for distracting me from my retribution.

She wants to save me. I intend to ruin her. Things are going to get interesting.

excerpt

“While I’m in town, I need a companion.”

“A what?” she asks.

I hold back a smirk at her suspicious tone. “Since arriving in Abbottsville I have been inundated with social invitations. Many I can’t refuse as I wish to build goodwill in the community. I need someone to accompany me who has no interest in romantic entanglements.”

“And you think that person is me?”

“It makes a certain amount of sense.” No, it doesn’t, and I’m a fool for even suggesting it. But ever since admitting to myself that I find her even the tiniest bit attractive, I’ve become obsessed with seeing more of her.

“And that’s it?” She poses the question with particular emphasis.

“You can’t tell anyone about our bargain.” I hope the entire town, her father included, will suspect we’re lovers. This should make Powell crazy and disrupt the affair Rebecca is having with her married lover. Win-win. “The rest we’ll make up as we go.”

When Gray hears about it, he will laugh and laugh. Then he’ll tell me what a crazy stupid idea this is. And maybe he’ll be right. But the fact is, my revenge against Raymond Powell is at an impasse.

The man believes himself untouchable, and for the most part, he is. His daughter, however, is very touchable and well within my reach. Wondering what I’m doing to her will drive Powell mad.

“I’d rather have everything spelled out,” she says.

I’m fighting a smirk as I ask, “What are you afraid of?”

“You can’t seriously expect me to just blunder blind into an arrangement with you.”

“Very well. I will be living in Abbottsville for the next six months or so.” My gaze slides over her. There isn’t much to catch anyone’s attention. Ordinary clothes. No make-up. At least today she’s left her glasses behind. When I accused her of hiding, I wasn’t off the mark. “During that time, I will want female companionship.”

“You mean like…” She seemed unable to finish the sentence. “Like…”

“Like?” I prompt, curious to what path her mind travels to.

“You…you can’t really expect me to…” The silence stretches. She looks mortified. “To sleep with you.”

Outrageous. Tempting. Risky. My mouth goes dry.

Expect? No. At least not as part of my vendetta against her father. But for my own pleasure? With ruthless determination, I refocus on my primary motivation. I intend to torment her father with rumors and insinuation. But now that she’s brought up the idea of us sleeping together, I’m not sure I can keep from dwelling on the idea.

“I’d be a better choice for you than Tickwell.” Her eyes grow very big as I set my hand on the railing beside her and lean in. “At least I’m not married.”

“This isn’t like you,” she says.

Irritation flares at her presumption. “You don’t know anything about me.”

“I know how you used to be.”

“You knew an inexperienced boy.”

Detecting her spicy perfume, I lower my head to better absorb the scent. The exotic blend seems at odds with the angel brightness of her hair and her nondescript appearance. What would it be like to have that scent rubbed all over my skin by her naked body pressed against mine?

“I can’t believe you expect me to sleep with you.” She stares at me for a long, searching moment before speaking. “Do you seriously think you’d be satisfied with an unwilling woman in your bed?” Her whispered question blends curiosity and challenge.

“Do you seriously think you’d be unwilling?” The subtle jump of her body when I blow air against her neck betrays her. “Go ahead and tell me you don’t want my hands on you.”

“I don’t.”

“You may claim that the idea gives you no pleasure, but your body…” I coast my hand down her ribcage and her back arches, pressing her into my touch. Fire flares in my gut, dangerous and wild. “Tells a different story.”

Her features flow from confusion into sensual bemusement. How does she pull off the naïve act so convincingly? Regardless of what she pretends, she’s no match for me. With a look, a word or, heaven help me, a touch, I arouse her. A ferocious sense of power seizes me. My heart thunders in my chest, pumping blood to my groin. Fuck. What is her allure?

“But you don’t have to worry,” I continue. “I like my women eager or not at all.”

“Really?” Her lashes drift upward. “You seem like the sort of man who takes what he wants.”

Frenzy #NewRelease Day Blitz with Casey L. Bond

Title: Frenzy
Author: Casey L Bond
Genre: YA Paranormal
Cover Designer: Cover Me Darling
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
After the world was ravaged by a viral apocalypse, Blackwater is one of the only colonies that remains. The survivors came together to create this safe haven. Nestled between a fierce river and a city’s flood wall, the well-being of its residents hangs on a long-established treaty with the night-walkers. Sounds simple enough, but lately, the people of Blackwater have been dying, and the humans believe the night-walkers are to blame.

Porschia Grant starves for more than her parents’ affection. Forced to enter the rotation, she will be given extra food rations in exchange for becoming a vampire’s breakfast and dinner for a week. The rotation has an extra responsibility as well: leave the colony and enter the dangerous forest to hunt for food. A night-walker will protect the hunters from the infected that roam the woods. But with the treaty hanging in the balance and tension between the humans and vampires rising, anything could happen in the darkness.

What would you do if your only chance at survival might kill you?

Release Day Blitz-Roomates by Erin Leigh

Title: Roommates
Author: Tara Brown writing as Erin Leigh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s Tours
Blurb:
Life is full of expectations.
For Brady Coldwell it’s always been about the game.
Hockey is and always will be, his life.
His family sacrificed everything to get him here and he won’t let them down.
He knows what’s expected of him.
Natalie Banks is no different.
She too knows what it means to have everyone sacrifice for you.
She knows about the debt that’s left owing in the end and the price you pay for making up your own mind.
But when an innocent mistake lands them as roommates, neither of them is prepared for the feelings they have or the consequences of their actions.
How do you negotiate matters of the heart?
How do you say no when it simply feels so right? 

I am the mother of two beautiful girls who are growing up so fast, the wife of a cute guy in a uniform (my own personal hero), and a writer.
My family will tell you it doesn’t exactly fall into that order. Especially around dinner time when I “Cook” from a takeout menu with my face plastered to my computer.
I also have two cats who I adore more than I should, like more than people I know, and a dog. He is a beagle who is naughty but just so darned cute. He gives you that little beagle face and then steals your slice of pizza.

I have a busy mind and even busier fingers. I can write fast and keep track of a large cast, but I can’t remember why I’m at the grocery store. I try to write lists but they always end up being notes for books or indie bands. I LOVE INDIE MUSIC!
I talk to myself in the car and sing too loud for my skill level. The invention of Bluetooth has made talking in the car less awkward but if you hear me singing, run.
I love writing. I love my characters like they are my friends and I am telling their version of the truth.

My worst flaw is the horrid English accent which I read everything with. If I read aloud it comes too. I’m not English, so I can’t even do the accent which makes it awkward for anyone who is nearby.

My favourite authors are Robert Jordan and Jane Austen and Robert Mccammon and Jim Crace. I think Stephen King and Dean Koontz have the most unique imaginations. I have the hardest time not LOVING Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger. I know all the serial killers have a copy but I adored that novel. It made me feel a thousand different things and one of them was more alive. (And not in the least bit serial killer-ish)
When I grow up I want to be James Patterson or Nora Roberts. I aspire to be like them, always trying to hone my skills and work harder.
My genres are all over the map. I have Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Romance, Science Fiction, Erotica (under Sophie Starr my porn name so my mom doesn’t know), Thrillers, and even some Romantic Comedies.

“Wanna go for dinner?” I test the water after a minute.
She sighs and gives me a look, stopping us both in the middle of the street during the busiest time of day. I drag her to the side of the building we are next to and hold her tight. “No. I want you to come to our place for dinner. I’m tired and I want to put on something grungy and maybe force you to watch something girlie.”
“Okay.” I wrinkle my nose. “Rough week?”
“No. Just tired because it’s new, and I’m still lost and I miss Hartford and all the people and how fun it was. But I’m catching on and a girl named Linna was nice to me today. She sat with me at lunch and we talked. She’s from Providence too. She said you guys were in seventh grade together, but you probably won’t remember her. Dark hair and blue eyes and really pretty.”
My insides clench. “Linna Mackenzie?”
“Yeah!” Her eyes are wide and then they dull. “Really?” She reads my face like a book. “You are why I can’t have nice things.”
I bend down and kiss her cheek. “You are my nice thing.” How the fuck is it possible she works with a girl I fucked when I was fifteen? Fuck! “You are everything.”
She makes duck lips and looks off to the right. Her sour mood is going strong tonight and I suspect I am the cause of it all.
“Do you want to go back to Hartford?” I run my hands along her neck and cheek. She’s cold.
Her bright eyes widen as she lifts her face to mine and shrugs. “I don’t know. I need to give this more of a chance, I think.”
I bend and kiss her softly. “Whatever you want to do, I’m with you on it. I already told you that.”
She melts into me and lets me hold her.
“And I’m sorry about Linna. I was fifteen.”
She laughs against my lips. “You should trade out West.”
I shake my head. “That won’t help.”
She pulls back and rolls her eyes. “Gross.”
