Love Discovered in New York by Danielle Allen - Release Launch






SYNOPSIS:


The Rebel

Mya Washington is a rebel. Or at least, that’s what her family has always said. As the youngest of a set of triplets, she has always been the more rebellious of the three…even though she never considered herself a rebel.
Outspoken? Yes.
Rule Breaker? Sometimes.
Trouble Maker? Nev—occasionally.
Growing tired of being typecast and misunderstood, Mya moves to New York looking for a fresh start away from the life she grew up in and out of the shadow of her older sisters.  Striking out on her own may have put a strain on the family dynamic, but it's the new beginning Mya was looking for.
But after the unexpected death of her mother, she is blindsided yet again by a wedding invitation she didn’t see coming. Her father’s upcoming marriage only cements the wall she’s put up around her heart. Because if her father could be such an utter disappointment, why should she even attempt to open up to any man?
Enter Colton Davis.

EXCERPT:

“What are you doing?” I asked breathily, licking my lips and silently begging him to kiss me.
He didn’t answer at first. He looked at me predatorily before leaning down to nibble on my neck. The feeling of his teeth lightly grazing my skin while the threat of someone walking down the hallway and turning the corner made me clench tightly. His fingers gripped my hips and desire washed over me.  His hands caused goosebumps to erupt everywhere he touched.  My body hummed from the electric currant that flowed between us. The anticipation I felt for Colton’s kiss was almost unbearable.
“What are you doing?” I repeated, wrapping my arms around his neck.
Leaning in so that our lips were almost touching, Colton answered sexily, “You.”



AUTHOR BIO:

I am a married event planner, life coach and instructor.  Between my awesome friends and family and my amazing husband, I am constantly surrounded by love.  My goal at all times is to love what I’m doing and enjoy life.  I love shopping and football with equal fervor.  I’m an amateur movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for fun). I love to read, but since I’ve been writing, I don’t read as much as I used to. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most mediums of creative, artistic expression. But music is probably my favorite.

Marked - Tattoos & Leather Series by Jaymie Holland

Marked
Tattoos & Leather series
by Jaymie Holland

Flight attendant Tracie Bell’s career has her always on the go. Too busy flying from one airport to the next, having already learned the hard lesson about not mixing business with pleasure, Tracie is content with her dark dream lover fantasies and memories of submission past. As for the men in her life, well, they might as well get frequent flier miles for as often as they take flight, never seeming to stick around when she really needs them. It’s not that she’s bitter about it, but she knows it’s inevitable that they always take off and leave her. 

But Tracie is not just a play-with-anyone kind of woman. She craves submitting to a Dom and being owned and used for pleasure. Approaching the gate for a pickup flight to Hawaii, Tracie finds herself begrudgingly attracted to not only one but two of her first class passengers, Lucas and Kane. 

Lucas Connor and Kane Allen hadn’t been sure they were ready to entertain seeing someone again after losing the woman they loved to a violent act more than a year ago. Seeing Tracie’s beautiful features blush with her mutual attraction was all it took for them to open to the idea. She’s intelligent, caring, sweet, and oh-so-submissive. Problem is she’s too skittish to involve herself in any kind of relationship, especially with two men. Even after a night of incredible passion, she runs. 

Now Lucas and Kane must show her she’s made her mark on their hearts. Forever and always.
Review:
Marked is so damn hot I thought my Kindle would melt from the heat! Another fantastic story in the Tattoos & Leather series from Jaymie Holland (AKA Cheyenne McCray). I love everything Jaymie/Cheyenne has written so when the opportunity arose to read/review Marked I jumped at it.
Because of her past, Tracie is very reluctant to take the chance that 2 of her 1st class passengers, Lucas & Kane present her. If 2 such hot alpha guys propositioned me I would have a hard time turning them down...but I digress! After finally giving in to her ultimate fantasy of 2 dominant men in bed, Tracie runs from her emotions and her guys. Kane & Lucas find a way to show Tracie that she is everything they have ever wanted in their lives and in their bed!
If you are looking for a smoking hot read, look no further than Marked!

Author:
Jaymie is the alter-ego of New York Times best selling author Cheyenne McCray.
Several of Cheyenne's novels are being re-published under the name Jaymie Holland, plus you'll find many never-before-published books and novellas!

It's In His Kiss by Jill Shalvis - Release Day Review






Book Summary:
ONE KISS CAN LAST FOREVER

Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now's her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam's eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile.

Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a self-made man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can't resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near. Yet when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca's heart? 


Review:

How have I never read anything by Jill Shalvis before? It really is true...blogging about books I get to find the most awesome "new to me" authors and books! 

Sam & Becca's story just sucks you right into the book. I found myself so absorbed into this story that I just couldn't put it down, I had to know what was going to happen next. I love it when a book gets you emotionally involved and this one did just that for me.

It's In His Kiss has the perfect amount of heat, humor, & Hunk O Man ...and that is what makes it the most awesome contemporary romance book I have read this year!

(yes I am going back and reading the previous Lucky Harbor Books)

Elemental Magic Series by Brynna Curry - Author Interview

Tour Banner























 

•        Tell us a little about your latest book/release/WIP? 

I like to work on more than one project at once, so I have three series either in progress or planning. I’m focusing my attentions on Tempting Taylor which is book two of the Triple Star Ranch series. Claiming Ana left a lot of loose ends and barely tapped the surface of the homicide investigation of Sam Murphy’s death. I left things up in the air intentionally, as the story was more about Howl and Ana than the Murphy brothers. Tempting Taylor is fast paced, hot and settles a part of the overall story, but it will take the remaining two books, Craving Cassandra and Saving Sarah to bring the series to a satisfying conclusion.

My other focus is a paranormal romance series Shadows or Seven, or the Shadow books as I like to call them. Charm of Light is Allaina Corrigan’s story. I love this story world with its magic and vampires. The series is a continuance of Elemental Magic, picking up the thread with the Corrigan’s children.


•        What’s one thing that you enjoy most about writing? Least?

Creating worlds with just a keyboard and my mind. I can’t really think I anything I don’t like about writing.

•        One thing (object, not people) you can’t live without?

My laptop. My “paper people” live there.


•        One unusual item in/on/around your workspace?

I have a five star dragon ball, a Harry Potter wand and a deck of YuGiOh cards that stay on my desk.
