Blog Tour and Giveaway ~ The Intern Series by Brooke Cumberland

 
Synopsis 
She’s sexy, fierce, and a loud-mouthed know-it-all…and she’s completely off limits.

Cecilia isn’t your typical college student. Hell, she isn’t a college student at all, but that doesn’t stop her from applying for one of the biggest and prestigious enterprises in the Midwest.

She wants it. She takes it.
She doesn’t let anything get in her way when it comes to finding out the truth.

When Bentley Leighton, soon-to-be CEO of Leighton Enterprises, meets “Ceci,” he’s instantly impressed. He doesn’t have time to train a new intern. However, when he sees her that first day, his intentions begin to change.

He’s the boss. She’s the intern.
Nothing can happen. It’s against the company rules.

Then again, some rules were made to be broken.

What starts as innocent flirting becomes raveled up into so much more—secrets, lies, deceit.

Uncertainty riveted my core as my anger spread…she was impossible to forget.
After all, she was still my intern.

Forbidden.
Lust.
Betrayal.

Blog Tour and Giveaway ~ Unforgettable by Lacey Wolfe

 

 



Genre: Contemporary

Can an older man be everything Krista’s been looking for?

Krista Michaels’ dating life has been non-existent since her divorce a year before. When her best friend steps in and declares it’s time for a night out at the newest May/December hang-out, The Gentleman’s Club, Krista enters a whole new world and lays eyes on a man who leaves her speechless.

Neil Clark likes younger women and having a good time. Krista catches his attention right away, From their first conversation, he can tell she isn’t a woman to simply play with. One problem: Krista isn’t interested, or so she says. But Neil isn’t about to let her slip away.

Krista’s heart and mind battle it out as Neil does his best to win her over. But they have one huge difference in what they want out of life, and Krista isn’t willing to give up her values, not for a man, not for money, not for love…

~Excerpt~

Krista jogged to catch up with her friend. At the entrance, a big man stood there in the classic get-up. Sunglasses, a black shirt, and tight jeans. He was hot and Krista wondered if she could stay out there with him because he looked more like her type.

“Good evening, ladies. I need to see some ID.” He held out his hand.

She dug hers out of her wallet and handed it to him. He glanced at the I.D.’s, smiled, and gave them back.

“Enjoy your evening.”

Jamie looped her arm through Krista’s and they were on their way to what felt like the unknown to Krista.

Inside was dark as expected, but there was just enough lighting so she wouldn’t trip over anything. There were a lot of women there. Apparently her friend wasn’t the only one with a thing for older men.

There was a small dance floor to her left, but it was mostly set up with various lounge areas. A contemporary feel flowed throughout with black leather sofas, red-and-white throw pillows, and chrome décor. The bar sat in the center of the room, and Krista was thrilled when Jamie led her in that direction.

A female bartender, who was surprisingly dressed conservative in a white button down blouse, greeted them. “What can I get you?”

“Two sex on the beaches,” Jamie said.

“Suck up.” Krista leaned her back against the bar and glanced around. She didn’t see a man anywhere without a young, beautiful woman at his side. Next to the attached women, she felt like she was wearing a paper sack. Not a man looked in her direction. “I bet all the good ones are taken.”

Jamie twirled a lock of her blonde hair as she checked out the men. “Why do you say that?”

“With the amount of women in here, any man without one at this point must be a loser.”

“Or he’s just waiting on the right woman.” Jamie winked.

The bartender returned with their drinks. Jamie told her to leave the tab open.

“Now what?” Krista asked as she picked up her beverage.

“Let’s find somewhere to sit, drink a little to lighten our mood, and go from there. This doesn’t need to be planned out.”

“This is so stupid.” Krista took a sip of her drink. “It feels like we’re waiting for some man to find us attractive and want to talk to us. It’s just weird.”

Her friend sighed. “Live a little. Jeez. How well has it been working out with the men your own age?”

Jamie had a point. “But still,” Krista protested halfheartedly.

“If you want to leave, I’ll give you my keys. I’m not going to force you to stay.”

“I might.” A deep masculine voice sounded from behind them.

A shiver swept down Krista’s spine. Her heart rate sped up and it felt like slow motion as she spun around to see who had spoken to her. Oh. My. God! She laid eyes on one of the most gorgeous men she’d ever seen. He put George Clooney to shame.

“Would you gorgeous ladies care to join me?” He motioned toward an empty couch.

“We’d love to.” Jamie smiled.

Krista attempted to speak, but no words were forming as she followed them over. She expected Jamie to sit next to the sexy man and keep him for herself, but instead, her friend left a gap for Krista to sit in the middle.

“I’m Neil.” He took a sip from his drink. The light gold liquid flowed to his lips and Krista found herself jealous of the glass.

“I’m Jamie, and this is my friend Krista Michaels.”

Why the heck did Jamie just given him my last name?

Neil rested his glass on the armrest. He was at ease and in his comfort zone as he straightened his light blue tie. “It’s nice to meet you both. First time here?”

“Yes. Though it’s a relatively new place. Have you been here much?” Jamie asked.

“A few times. I’m friends with the owner.” His gaze stayed on Krista.

She stared back, mesmerized by him. He had dark hair with slight streaks of grey at the temple. Not too much, just was the right amount. Perfect. Like him. Now if only she could speak, she might get somewhere.

“What do you do for a living?” He spun the glass around with his fingers.

“We’re both teachers,” Jamie answered.

His eyes widened. “This must be your favorite time of the year. Summer vacation.”

“It is.” Jamie poked Krista in the side.

Krista nodded since for whatever reason, her mouth still wasn’t working.

“Are you always so quiet?” Neil smirked. A tiny dimple formed on his chin. She loved a man with dimples.

“Usually she won’t shut up.” Jamie giggled. “What’s up, Krista?”

“I love your name by the way.” His blue eyes locked on her.

“Thank you.” She finally managed a word.

He took a long drink then set the cup down on the table. He sat back, pulling one leg up and resting his ankle on the opposite knee. “I’m going to be frank. When I see something I like, I go after it. And I like what I see, Krista. Are you single?”

His bluntness caused a wave of pleasure to ripple though her. “I am.”

“I’m attracted to you very much, but I don’t want to waste my time if you don’t feel the same.” He paused, staring at her with a longing in his eyes. Finally, he moistened his lips. “That isn’t entirely true. If you weren’t interested in me, I’d try harder. I don’t like not getting what I want, and I want you.”

Blog Tour and Giveaway ~ Fragment by Ellie Wade

 
 

Synopsis
What happens when something so terrible tears you apart from the inside out? 
 
You become a fragment of yourself. 
 
On the right path to achieving her hopes and dreams, Campbell Stevens has always been a model student. The first time she lets loose during her senior year of high school, she loses everything. 
 
Living in a nightmare after surviving the most traumatic event, Campbell learns to be content by walking through life single and unattached, free of the uncertainty that relationships bring. She isn’t looking for love. In fact, she goes out of her way to avoid it—that is, until she runs into Deacon Montgomery, a kind and handsome Chicago firefighter. She denies her instant attraction to him, only making him more persistent in his pursuit of her. Despite her desire to be with Deacon, Campbell is too damaged to share herself with anyone else. 
 
Life left Campbell shattered. Can Deacon help put the fragments back together? Or will she forever be broken?

Excerpt

Excerpt 1: 

“Why are you so nice to me when I keep pushing you away? Why do you keep trying? I’m broken, Deacon. Don’t you know what’s good for you?” Campbell pleads.

“Yeah, I do, and it’s you. I want all of you, and if you are broken, I want all those shattered pieces, too. Please just trust me.”

Cam’s eyes fill with unshed tears as her bottom lip quivers. I grab her head on either side, running my fingers through her hair, pulling her toward me, bringing her mouth to mine. I feel her lips quiver as I taste her, ravishing her mouth. Cam’s hands wrap around my waist and she runs her fingers up and down my back. I explore her mouth, my tongue greedy to touch every part. She whimpers, and my dick throbs in a needful plea.

Fuck, I want this girl.

In Königsberg, Prussia, they work with Konstantin on the next evolution of Project Lazarus.

Book Blast ~ Charity’s Warrior by Maya James

 
 
 
 
 
Synopsis:
 
Charity Powers is a young, intelligent woman that has left
behind her predictable small town life, and even more predictable lover, to
gamble on a fresh start in New York. She arrives with no leads or friends, just
an armful of optimism and determination. When an attack at a local bar, a
possible kidnapping attempt on her, is thwarted by a stranger, her life takes
on an unforeseen turn.
 
Gorgeous and overly experienced Justin Collins saves Charity
from her attacker, and continues to save her in many other ways. “He’s
just the right mix of gentleman and caveman,” is how she describes him.  He gives her exactly what she wants, and
almost everything she needs, but his damaged past makes it impossible for him
to commit.
 
At a new job, she falls into an online relationship with JP,
the company’s owner.  She hasn’t seen
him, but he fills the gaps of Justin’s absences and feeds a fire Justin left
unattended.
 
 
The return of her ex-lover exposes the dangerous secrets
around her—one of these men has the power and connections to keep her safe at
any cost, and the endless love for her to use this power or give it up to keep
her.


 
 

 

Justin has his arm
around me, lightly playing with the hair behind my ear as we watched the
streetlights come to life, quivering over the water’s surface. The gondolier is
actually humming a song now, but I think it is more to occupy himself than us.
Our conversation drops off comfortably, and we enjoy the cool night. I take the
opportunity and begin kissing the side of his face, following his strong
jawline.
“If I told you
that I’m falling in love with you, would you believe it?” Justin asks me suddenly.
My heart is instantly
pounding, and much too loudly to deny it. I’m sure it’s sending ripples out on
the water as it shakes the boat. “Yes,” I answer through the huge
lump of emotion in my throat.
 “Even
though it would be a lie?” he adds softly.
“A lie?” I
repeat painfully, insulted and devastated.
“I couldn’t fall
for you anymore. The truth is I’ve already fallen. I’ve even tried to get back
up only to have you sweep the feet from under me again. I’m breaking the
biggest promise I’ve ever made to myself, Charity.” He turns to me,
placing a hand on my cheek. “Despite all my efforts, I am hopelessly and
endlessly in love with you. I don’t want to know another day without you, I
couldn’t survive it.”
 
He is looking at me
for a response through two very vulnerable eyes. There is no catching my
breath, or my heart. They are galloping around the lake like wild horses,
without any reigns to control them by. I am lost in the dust of their hooves,
unable to breathe, to form words and utter a cohesive sentence in reply.
 
 
Author Bio:

 

Indie Author with my first Romance novel, Charity’s Warrior,
and now the second in the series, Charity’s Secrets, publishing on Amazon
Kindle, Creatspace, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. 

I’m very passionate about writing stories full of love, lust, eroticism, and
strong characters entwined around each other in an interesting, suspenseful
journey.

East coast born and raised, I’m married, extremely happily, with 4 kids, 3 of
which are now young adults (not sure when that happened).

I’m a COO in my technology-based “day job,” which requires a mix of
technical and creative writing for both internal and client-facing materials,
but it was not satisfying my artistic spirit. Writing the “Charity” series has
been absolutely fulfilling and exciting.

My favorite writing takes place on my phone while lying on the Southernmost
Beach in Key West, where I try to go at least twice a year.

Fun Facts:
 
The outline and first two drafts of Charity’s Warrior were
completely written on a Droid phone.
 
With a full time day job, it took 5 months to complete the
first draft of Charity’s Warrior.
 
I worked on the first draft of Charity’s Warrior during a
fall visit to Key West, and was working on the second draft during a spring visit
to Key West.
 
The original cover for Charity’s Warrior was a picture of my
Beagles’ collar lying on my bed sheet.

TITLE: Just For The Summer
AUTHOR: Danielle Jamie
RELEASE DATE:  Summer 2014
**This summer fall in love with Chase and Ashlynn. See how their love story began in Just For The Summer. A hot steamy novella showing the ups and downs of a hot summer romance**
 
Chase Kenzington loves two things: fast cars and women. At twenty-one, he has the entire world at his feet. With his father being Hank Kenzington, who is one of the best drivers in the Sprint Cup Series and his grandfather, Arnold Kenzington, a legend in Nascar, he’s used to getting whatever he wants when he wants it.

 

 
When he and his friends decide to spend the summer at his father’s beach house in Myrtle Beach, he expects to spend it throwing parties on the beach and finding hot girls to hook up with. The last thing on his mind is finding a girl who’ll make him re-think everything.

 

 
Ashlynn Westin, along with a few sorority sisters, is heading to Myrtle Beach for four weeks of fun in the sun. The last thing she expects is to meet a guy while on vacation who will make her fall fast and hard before she even knows what hit her. When she meets Chase the chemistry between them is undeniable. The thing about summer and summer romances is that they both come with expiration dates. After summer ends you have to part ways and go back to your everyday lives.

 

 
What do you do when you think you’ve found your soulmate but you’re separated by hundreds of miles? Will Ashlynn and Chase be able to walk away from their summer fling and never look back, pretending that what they had for one month over the summer was nothing more than a hot summer hook-up?

In his entire life, Daniel has never gotten what he needs, so he moves to the next place, the next job, the next attempt to find something worth staying for, always landing at the top of his game, but never feeling like he belongs.

The chemistry between Asher and Daniel sizzles, so Asher invites Daniel home. As both men struggle to learn themselves while getting to know each other, the lines of desire and control blur. With all that fire comes the risk of getting burned. But if Daniel and Asher can walk through the flames together, they might find what they desperately need

Janessa Rowe is a twenty one year old college girl with little respect for other people. She’s a rich, spoiled brat of a girl who gets her kicks out of humiliating others. When she discovers that her boyfriend of three years has in fact engaged in a physical relationship with someone else, Janessa will stop at nothing to get a little payback. Even if that means using her new rival’s disgruntled fiancée to get what she wants.

Dakota Blackwater is everything Janessa is not. He’s kind, sweet, gentle, and a stand-up guy all in all, but when his girlfriend’s betrayal hurts more than his pride, he agrees to take part in a plan that will test both their self-restraints and their feelings for one another.

Problems arise, however, when Janessa’s interest for Dakota shifts from being a pawn to achieve her ultimate goal, to potential lover. After having her heart broken in the past, the last thing she wants is to get involved in matters of the heart, but how can she follow through with her plan when the more time she spends with Dakota, the less she cares about getting payback? Sooner rather than later they are forced to confront the reality that their game has slowly transformed into something else and that what seemed like a scheme to exact revenge, now comprises both their hearts in ways neither of them anticipated.

author

clip_image005As a child, she used to lose herself in an imaginary world by the means of a good book. Now that she’s all grown up, Kristy gets to create her own fictional realms and make them come to life in ways that most readers might not expect.

She’s always had a passion for writing but never had the opportunity do so until now. After trying out numerous options, she realized that writing was what she loved the most so when she found herself with some free time on her hands, she decided to pursue her passion. As it turned out, her very active imagination helped her achieve her goals of creating believable plots with some ordinary, and some not so ordinary characters that helped the stories move along in one way or another.

As she keeps moving along in achieving her dreams of becoming a published author, she divides her time in between her five children and her very understanding husband.
