Heat Wave Blog Hop #Giveaway #freebies #fun

HEAT WAVEHOP

 

Welcome to my little piece of the world wide web. If you have been following along for a while, you know I have been a bit MIA from regular blogging of late. Between my family, FT job, writing, and running a fledgling indie publishing house, I haven’t had much free time to keep up with things here. My sincere apologies, especially if you missed me *grin*

So anyway, I figure what better way to get into your good graces again, or for those of you new to the blog, introduce myself than by giving something away. And that is just what blog hops are all about, friends and freebies.

Roane Publishing (the fledgling publisher I mentioned a bit ago) is hosting the hop, and giving away a GRAND PRIZE of a $50 Amazon Gift Card. But to sign up for that goodie, you have to visit their page (link below) and enter to win. But a blog hop has more than one prize, as each of the sites taking part is giving away something.

I am giving an INTERNATIONAL prize and a US only prize. So see below for the details.

For US entrants only.

Signed copy of either Call of the Sea by Rebecca Hart or a signed copy of Bad Boys Wanted, featuring an erotic romance short by R. Brennan. Winner’s choice.

For International entrants:

An ecopy of any title from the backlist of either R. Brennan or Rebecca Hart

The best part, is to enter to win, either of the prizes is to sign up for my monthly newsletter, Bex Book News, which features all the goings on for both Rebecca and R. (the same person, in case you weren’t aware). I use the term monthly very loosely, as I have not really been putting them out every month, but rather when I actually have information to share with you all. So it really becomes the best way to stay up to date on all my goings on: book releases, signings, sales, etc. So hit the link below and join today. The winners of my giveaway will be selected from those who sign up for the newsletter during the BLOG HOP event.

NEWSLETTER SIGN-UP LINK: http://wordpress.us12.list-manage1.com/subscribe?u=ce520feb72e8d80271601a406&id=e2ca63662d

If you are already a newsletter subscriber (I know who you are :P), just comment below and you will be entered to win as well.

Don’t forget — this is a BLOG HOP and there are bunches of other prizes to be had and new blogs and authors to visit, to hit the link below and you can visit Roane’s Blog to enter to win the $50 Amazon gift card, as well as a slew of others.

Thanks for visiting and for signing up for the newsletter. It’s so great to have your support.

Happy Book Birthday to Lolly Tova and SECRET YEARNING #Erotic #Romance #Menage

LT_SecretYearning_banner

Consider stumbling upon your best friends making love, and from that moment onward being consumed by a frightening new attraction for them that drives you to distraction. That’s what happens to my heroine, Sasha Mooney, and during the course of the story she’s forced to decide whether she’s the third wheel or third lover.

While the story is packed with plenty of hot sex, there’s also romance. Secret Yearning pays homage to the friends to lovers troupe, but spices up this old chestnut with a menage relationship.
LT_SecretYearning_coverinBlurb:

After Sasha Mooney’s latest doomed relationship fails, her best friends, Kate and Justin, drag her off for a long weekend in a remote cottage to celebrate her thirtieth birthday. Only, the new romance between Kate and Justin highlights Sasha’s loneliness—and jealousy—and she can’t help but crave the return of their cozy, platonic threesome.

Whichever way Sasha turns, she stumbles across Kate and Justin making love, and soon she’s consumed by a frightening desire for both of them that isolates her further.

When a morning alone with Kate leads to a romantic encounter, Sasha’s guilt and self-loathing spiral out of control. She’s crossed a line and quickly hurdles another when Justin walks in on her in the shower and sparks fly. With hopes of salvaging her friendships fading fast, Sasha’s options don’t look pretty. Either she risks Kate and Justin’s contempt by admitting her feelings for them both, or she respects their new relationship and walks out of their lives for good.

#CoverLove Cover Reveal and Giveaway: Reflected by Majanka Verstraete #Paranormal #Fantasy #dark

Welcome back, my friends. Today I have fenagled yet another rockin’ Inkspell cover reveal for you all today. This one is from Majanka Verstraete’s latest release, REFLECTED.

Let’s start by showing you the pretty, and then we can get to all the other juicy details on the novel.

Reflected

About the Book

Title: Reflected (Mirrorland #2)

Author: Majanka Verstraete

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal Mystery, Romance, Dark Fantasy

When Alison was stuck in Mirrorland, all she wanted was to be alive again. Now she’s gotten her revenge by inhabiting Piper’s body and trapping her behind the mirror. But pretending to be Piper is more difficult than she imagined it would be.

On top of that, the borders between Mirrorland and the real world are crumbling. Danger abounds, demons appear in high school, and if wasn’t for the help of a new mysterious guy, Alison might not have escaped. But there’s more to this guy than meets the eye, and she’s determined to find out what, especially since it might be related to her own supernatural problems.

Meanwhile, Piper tries to convince the Horseman of Death to help her return to her own world, but he’s got his own hidden agenda, which may cause more serious risks. Can Piper find a way to restore the balance before both worlds collide?

Author Bio

Majanka VerstraeteMajanka Verstraete begged her Mom to teach her how to read while she was still in kindergarten. By the time she finished fifth grade, she had read through the entire children’s section of her hometown library.

She wrote her first story when she was seven years old, and hasn’t stopped writing since. With an imagination that never sleeps, and hundreds of possible book characters screaming for her attention, writing is more than a passion for her.

She writes about all things supernatural for children of all ages. She’s tried to write contemporary novels before, but something paranormal always manages to crawl in.

Majanka is currently studying for her Master of Laws degree, and hopes one day to be able to combine her passions for law and writing. When she’s not writing, reading or studying, she likes watching “The Vampire Diaries” and “Game of Thrones,” spending time with her friends, or playing “World of Warcraft.”

Accidental Valentine Blog Tour and an #Excerpt by @KatrinaSizemore #Romance #Anthology @Roanepublishing

Today I have the distinct pleasure of bringing you an excerpt from the recently released anthology, ACCIDENTAL VALENTINE. The anthology contains five wonderful stories of accidental Valentine’s Day romance, and I have to say, I really enjoyed the whole thing. A great light read, or something to pull out at the waiting room or while waiting your turn at the DMV.

My excerpt is from Better Latte Than Never by Katrina Sizemore…

EXCERPT:

“Sorry you’re stuck with me today,” he said.

Hailey dashed inside.

The warmth of the shop and his voice enveloped her. It already smelled beautiful in there. The usual coffee smells, but also something spicy. Something extra.

“It’s okay…” She took a deep fortifying breath, appreciating more of the new scent and adjusted her purse strap on her shoulder.

The bolt thudded into place and he stepped back into her view.

Since when had Andrew become so hot, and what was wrong with her? He had been her best bud since at least freshman year.

She swept her gaze over him again, tallying the changes she could see. Besides the sexy stubble and the muscle that twitched in his temple as he observed her inspection, he was the same old Drew. Button up flannel shirt, sleeves rolled up, khakis that hung on his frame as if they had been tailored. But instead of the supportive old friend that he was, he appeared scrumptious and totally kissable.

She dragged in a breath.

A timer beeped, breaking the moment.

“Hey, I made you coffee. It’s on the counter.” He headed to the back, leaving her to notice the holiday decorations and cardboard cherub hanging from the ceiling in front of her, his arrow pointed right at her chest. As if Cupid intended to make her his target. Her heart skipped a beat.

Hailey rolled her eyes at herself. Valentine’s Day wasn’t like Halloween. The veil between worlds wasn’t thin. Magic didn’t happen on Valentine’s Day. She had watched Amy hang the thing yesterday, pulling him out of the packaging from a big party store.

“Bring it on, fat baby,” she muttered and went looking for some coffee.

* * * *

About Katrina Sizemore:

When Katrina was eleven, she penned a fantasy story for school with her best friend and has been writing ever since. As Katrina grew older, her love of reading expanded beyond fantasy to include romance and science fiction. The focus of her stories followed.

Still enchanted by the mystical and fantastical, she now weaves romantic stories about couples caught in contemporary settings, as well as paranormal and fantastical worlds.

Everyone deserves true love and a little magic.

AND….

Here are the details on the anthology as a whole:

AccidentalValentine_CvrTitle:  Accidental Valentine
Author:  Various Authors
Publisher:  Roane Publishing
Release Date:  February 13, 2015
Keywords:  Contemporary, Romance, Valentine’s Day, Short Stories, Anthology, Sweet

Blurbs:

Guiding Hearts by Claire Gillian
Description: Is a lonely woman’s GPS sentient or is her subconscious taking her by the hand to help heal a scarred heart?
When Jemma Ernst’s GPS malfunctions and sends her to the home of handsome and engaging Gabriel Nash, she writes it off as a fluke. But she can’t seem to reprogram him out of her thoughts nor her GPS.

Better Latte Than Never by Katrina Sizemore
Description: Single and cold on Valentine’s Day, Hailey Merritt is not looking forward to working all day at the coffee shop while everyone around her is cheery with romance and she’s stuck trying to figure out her next step in life.

But, when a special bouquet arrives for her from a secret admirer, she decides to reserve judgment on this holiday and find whomever sent the flowers.

Maybe Cupid has a plan to make this her favorite Valentine’s Day ever.

Dream Architect by S.L. Hughson
Description: Taylor and Sons Custom Design keeps ASHLIN TAYLOR at arm’s length from her dream job. If only she were a son, she could follow her architectural dream. In the Taylor creed, girls get married and boys have careers. DYLAN CUTRIGHT focuses on finishing college and landing an architectural engineering job in a large firm. Minus emotional ties.

After their accidental encounter, their attraction is amplified during their work interaction. Unlike her family, Dylan encourages Ashlin to pursue her dream by enrolling in college. He even argues her case with Uncle Mike. All of this support confuses Ashlin because when she moves closer to him, he rebuffs her for reasons she can only speculate about.

Valentine’s Day might be the perfect opportunity for Ashlin to make him notice her. They are working together – alone – on the most romantic day of the year. Dylan builds her dream of career, but will he ever lower his walls and become more than just the man IN her dreams?

One Hot Angel by Jaylee Austin
Description: Oblivious to Tiffany Jenkins in three short weeks her life will end—unless she makes the perfect choice. Will she chose revenge and expose her ex-husband? Or chose love and surrender her heart to the only man who can save her?

Rock My Bones by Wendy Sparrow
Description: Jared has been eyeing the sexy mural painter from inside the museum’s paleontology lab, but she’s way out of his league. He can’t let her paint that obviously misplaced fern, though…even if it means initiating contact.

You could call her a paleontology groupie, but Shay Meyers is interested in a more modern specimen. An adult male Homo Sapien to be exact—one who needs to be dragged out of his lab for a practical course in mating rituals. If she’s lucky, this will be the Valentine’s Day she rocks his bones.
