Stranded by @helenkaydimon @RiptideBooks #Giveaway


Stranded_600x900blurbCabe got out of the gun-for-hire business the hard way—by nearly dying. Except then his former boss calls in one last favor for one final job. The mission should be simple: get a message to a retired operative in Alaska. But it puts Cabe face-to-face with the one man he doesn’t want to see and can never forget. Not after all the secrets and lies. Not after Brax almost killed him.

Brax Hughes lived hard and retired young to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Well, that was the plan, but before he can hang up his sniper rifle, he has one last mission: win back Kyle Cabe. Brax wants another chance, wants to come clean, but after months of lying to Cabe, he knows he could face a bullet—or worse—when they meet again. And they will meet. Brax made sure of that.

With a storm moving in and someone lurking outside the cabin, time is running out. Brax needs to talk fast and keep his weapons ready. And his best weapon is the truth.

Guest Post & #Giveaway: Megan Morgan-City Nights: One Night in Cleveland @morgan_romance



One Night In Cleveland is my second contribution to Tirgearr Publishing’s City Nights series. I also wrote One Night In Chicago. Cleveland (where I live) and Chicago (which I love to visit) are two of my favorite cities, so it wasn’t hard to pick the venues for my tales. But why write for City Nights in the first place? What’s the lure?

Mainly, I love the concept. I’m a city girl at heart, I found this out when I moved from the rural town where I spent most of my life to a big city in my early thirties. I love stories set in cities, especially sprawling, cosmopolitan ones where anything could happen. That’s the draw of cities: so many people and so many chances for adventure, lust-filled or otherwise. When I found out the City Nights series existed, I was excited to write something for it, and the fact no one had snagged up my two favorite cities already was a sign. I’ve been to Chicago many times and I love writing about it—much of my work is set there, across the multiple genres I write in. I’ve lived in Cleveland long enough I can tell you about it inside and out and I wanted to represent it, too.

In One Night In Cleveland, my hero Matt is a chef in an upscale Tremont restaurant. Tremont is Cleveland’s artsy, trendy hipster neighborhood with lots of restaurants and bars. Matt originally hails from Little Italy, another popular Cleveland neighborhood that hosts the biggest Italian festival in the city every August. My heroine Caylee is a cop with the Cleveland PD. She’s good at her job, despite the awkward accident that brings her in contact with Matt—Caylee mistakes him for a wanted criminal and accidentally arrests him. But instead of Matt getting angry, sparks of attraction fly.

Hard working and brave, Caylee is also dealing with the task of keeping her contrary widowed grandmother out of harm’s way. Matt is trying to remake himself and find something to be proud of after a checkered and difficult past. Desire may blossom into love one day, but at the moment, they can’t resist simply getting a taste of each other.

The City Nights series leads readers on a sexy tour around the world. Each story takes place in a twenty-four hour timeframe, and all of the stories are standalone, so you can read them in any order you wish. I love the concept behind City Nights and I’m sure I’ll be picking another city to play in soon!

divider1One_Night_in_Cleveland_by_Megan_Morgan-200blurbChef Matt Fattore lives a clean and lawful life—so he doesn’t expect to meet the woman of his wet dreams by being arrested by her. When Lieutenant Caylee Benton of the Cleveland PD mistakes him for a wanted burglar, Matt finds out fantasies sometimes land right in your lap—and frisk you.

Sparks fly despite the misunderstanding and Matt decides to take a chance and ask her out—and maybe, coax her into bed. But Caylee is more than just a beautiful woman with a badge and a gun. While Matt is falling in lust with her, she’ll become his hero, too.

Matt is about to spend the wildest twenty-four hours of his life in Cleveland, and if he’s lucky, he’ll be in handcuffs by the end of the night.

excerpt“Do you like being a cop?

She nodded. “I do. It can be grueling sometimes, but I like helping people. I like knowing I took somebody dangerous off the street so people out there can be a little safer.”

“There’s lots of dangerous people on the streets, though.” 

“Job security.” She checked out the tattoos on his arms. Lots of designs and lots of color, over all that hard, rippling muscle. He could probably pick her up easily with those arms. “What about you? A chef. That sounds interesting.”

“It can be.”

“How long have you been one?” 

“About a year. I’ve worked in restaurants for a long time, though. The guy who owns this place, we used to work together in another restaurant.” 

Caylee stretched over to where a pile of menus sat on the bar. She plucked one up. “Let’s see what we have here.”

He glanced down and picked at his shirt. She was examining his artwork. 

“I like to keep things simple,” he said. “But diverse, you know? People like good-looking dishes, but they still want simple flavors, things they recognize. People nowadays, they eat different than they used to. A lot of vegetarians and vegans, I like to have options for them. Healthier things, too. And people who do eat meat, they like to know the animal was treated well before it ended up on their plate.” 

“Sounds hypocritical. I mean, either way it met its maker so you could put it in your mouth.” 

“I guess it helps some people justify their choices.” 

“What’s your favorite thing on here?” She put the menu down between them. 

Matt leaned in. She caught the scent of cologne, and beneath that a raw sweaty smell, not unpleasant. He smelled like a man. She tried not to squirm on her stool. 

He skimmed down the menu and she was momentarily distracted by his long, elegant fingers. “I’d have to say this linguini dish, here.” He tapped the item description. “It’s actually a take on my mom’s recipe. I’m Italian. I grew up in Little Italy.”

She pulled the menu back. “I need to eat here. I don’t get into Tremont very often. My job keeps me pretty busy.” 

“Arresting poor, innocent men minding their own business.” His tone was light and teasing. 

“Yes, but sometimes you accidentally arrest a poor, innocent, handsome man.” 

He smiled, his gaze drifting downward for a moment, to her chest. Her heart pounded. He’d put some kind of sexy spell on her, that could be the only explanation. 

“I hope you get your man,” he said. “I’m really sorry I look so much like him.” 

“Not up close, trust me. You’re much better looking.”

Stars in Her Eyes by Kennedy Kelly #Romance @KennedyKellyAut

Title: Stars In Her Eyes

Author : Kennedy Kelly

Genre : Romance

Red carpet and one look was all it took to ignite the spark between Sachi Waters and mega-star Drayke Sloan. With a proposition that is typically left in the movies, the two find themselves consuming each other in a whirl wind weekend.

But when Sunday night rolls around, Sachi finds she didn’t just give Drayke her body, but her heart, too. He promised to stay in touch. But after months without a word, she gave up hope.

Until life threw them together again. The spotlight, the fans, their past all working together to keep these two apart. Can their love over come it all?

This book has mature content and is only suitable for those 18 and over.

I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO where I grew up with four older brothers. I now reside in Overland Park, Kansas. I’d always loved to write as a child. My teachers would call home not because I was in trouble but because I had a creative imagination and they wanted my parents to know about the crazy stories I was writing. I’ve always been a hard worker. I started working with my family’s company when I was 15 and still haven’t stopped. I am a wife, mother of two, hold down a full time job and am now trying to be a indie author. I have a passion for reading and before I started writing I could be found with a Kindle in my hand morning, noon and night. I’m a picky reader so it’s hard to please me but I feel like I have a keen eye for a good book.

I hope you all will join me on my new journey as I release my first book Fearless Love. It can be very scary but with my passion for the written word I hope it will be well worth it.

“What are you doing?” She pushed her hand down on the fabric of her skirt, covering her pussy as he bent forward in front of her.

He brushed her hand away and pulled her skirt up. “Don’t deny me the pleasure…” He knew by the cast away gaze and the tuck of her bottom lip, she was embarrassed yet turned on all at the same time. “Have you never had your pussy kissed?” He knew her answer without waiting for a reply. On inhaling the scent of her femininity, he felt the head of his cock throb with need. He teased at her sensitivity with his hot breath while using the tip of his tongue to tap gently at the head of her clit. She drew a sharp breath. On her exhale, he blew a smoldering stream of air up and down her swollen pussy lips. She gasped in need of more. He made another tender tap then a swirling stroke over her clit before drawing his tongue down along the folds of her lips.

“Oh God!”

He kissed her pussy’s sensitive outer lips then Frenched her inner ones.

Tainted Heart By Melissa Graves #Interview #Giveaway @msmelissagraves @PridePromo

Tainted Heart

 Mi Corazón Sangrante Series

Book: Two

Series should be read in order

Release Date: November 5, 2015

Pages: 294 pages

blurbA year after meeting and falling for the young, mysterious vampire, Dr. Brian Preston is now living and working side-by-side with Kyle Hayes for the agency guiding vampire-human relations at a secret underground facility. As the couple adapts to the demands of Brian’s career tending to vampires, Kyle’s return to school and the needs of their evolving relationship, a dangerous conspiracy puts everyone they know and everything they have been working for in danger. The sequel to 2014’s Bleeding Heart, Tainted Heart is Book Two in the Mi Corazón Sangrante series.


Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Melissa Graves author of Tainted Heart

Hi Melissa, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

Favorite thing about building your own world?

As a writer who always prefer to dabble in paranormal/supernatural/sci-fi-/fantasy themed worlds, creating something outside of “reality” is a constant pleasure. There’s a unique freedom to being able to step outside of modernity and every day existence in fiction. In the Mi Corazon Sangrante series, a world where vampires and humans live side by side is presented as naturally as any author might present a “regular” cast of characters and the situations they find themselves in. It was also fun to create my own kind of vampire, presenting them less as morally questionable creatures of the night and more as long-lived, efficient predators. I like the living-in-plain-sight idea: these people have always been around and can blend easily—so what does humanity do when they realize they are surrounded by vampires they know nothing about, most of whom are people they know, like, and maybe even love, and have to suddenly and openly incorporate them into society? Fear and caution promotes an attempt at logical, federally-funded assimilation of vampires into human life, but beneath the surface the system is as corrupt as any other. In Tainted Heart, you’ll see just how this begins to reveal itself.

What inspired you to write your first book?

I began writing “novels” in my early teens, mostly fanfiction based off of young adult sci-fi/fantasy novels I was crazy about. By then my work was already veering toward the romantic/erotic—those young adult novels definitely lacked a certain thing I was looking for—and from there I just kept writing fanfiction, increasingly preferring the queer kind as I delved into different fandoms. In the last few years I decided to create original works, using what I learned from years of writing fanfiction to create something I myself would love to read, with the diversity and erotica that my readers have always looked for in my previous work. I just needed to have it my way, and writing was the way to make that happen!

Do you have a specific writing style?

I’d like to think so. My style is definitely sparse. I’m heavy on dialogue and explicit erotica, and light on prose. I like readers to be able to apply their imaginations to my work, so I don’t go overboard describing places and things. I want to save that immersion for my sex scenes—there, I want to take you in and keep you, and then turn you out dizzy and flushed. If I’ve accomplished that, I’m happy.

Who are some of the authors that influenced you to write?

Anne Rice set the tone for my teenage years and the formation of my writing style—everything from her early erotica to her most recent works have been influential for me. I love the richness of her settings and characters and the way they interact. I love the pain and the pleasure she imbues in everything she writes. I love that she doesn’t shy away from explicit topics and the darker side of humanity as well as non-humanity. The personality of her characters takes center stage against a backdrop of sumptuous locations and scenarios. It’s just great stuff all around.

What are some jobs you’ve held? Have any of them impacted your writing? How?

I’m ashamed to admit how much time I’ve spent at my 9-5’s writing or planning to write. These events are entirely in the past, of course. I would never do such a thing at my current employment! Never. Nope. (Man, I hope my boss doesn’t like gay vampire erotica.)

A lot of authors hate the grind to pay the bills, but I have to be honest, some of my best writing happens during downtime at work. I can get really distracted at home, but at work I seem to think more clearly.

I work a pretty standard office-based job and always have since I graduated from college, and I appreciate it because it allows me to pay my bills so I can spend every minute of my downtime doing the thing that really gets me going.

excerptWhen it gets dark, he texts Brian that he’s going to be out late, and avails himself of not one but three vampire-human nightclubs set along a dense strip of Chicago nightlife. Going alone to places like this always attracts immediate attention, and he isn’t surprised when he has to pry both humans and vampires off of himself. But he doesn’t mind—the blood from the center is humming in his veins, and that buzz takes on a new dimension every time that he swallows a thimbleful of blood from a donor, which he does at least a dozen times over the course of the evening. When he’s more relaxed, he allows bodies against his own, dancing with strangers until strobe lights become normal and everything outside is too dim and still.

The blood changes the world around him. Every color, every sound and every source of light takes on a life of its own.

He loses track of how many donors he pays. All he knows is he’s spent all of the pocket money that Brian gave him for the weekend.

He feels like a bloated tick. He’s been away too long. Brian. He has to get back to Brian.

“This story is another sizzling creation from SJ Maylee.”

FFB Teaser - you don't want

excerptHe closed the door behind them and the distinct click of a lock tumbling over echoed around the room. Maybe no showing yesterday was a mistake. If they’d had any chance at all, she’d blown it for sure. How could she expect him to trust her now? The air, thick with unsaid words, closed in around her.

It was time to take care of business and escape before she embarrassed herself. “This must be for you.” She held out the envelope.

“Thank you.” He took it from her and tore it open, revealing a piece of paper. His cheeks pulled into a little smile, then it disappeared. He maneuvered around his desk and sat. “Do you like me, Candy?”

“Of course I do.” She clasped her arms around her middle. The bigger question is what he thought of her before Club Blind and now.

“Then why didn’t you show last night?” He pressed his lips together and kept his gaze on her.

“To be honest…”

“That’s all I’ll ever expect from you.”

“I’ll give it to you straight. You don’t want a girl like me.” She blew out a breath as if it could help her raging pulse. Never in a million years would she have guessed she’d want a man to tell her she was wrong.

“Is that what you believe?”

“Yes.” She kept her focus on him. He gave nothing away. His expression didn’t change, only his fingers tapped on his desk which was irritatingly neat.

“Then we have a problem.” He stood. “We’d agreed to meet. I kept up my end.”

“And I didn’t.” She blew out a deep breath.

“Come here.”

She didn’t move. She didn’t take her next breath either.

He pointed to the ground in front of him. “Don’t make me ask twice.”

She jumped and then slipped around his desk. Damn, he really did smell good. No matter whether it was aftershave or him, the deep woodsy scent turned here on. Everything about Brad turned her on.

“Did I ask you to join me at Mistress Charlie’s yesterday?”

“Yes, but—”

“Do you believe I’m a liar?”


“I don’t think you are either.” He tapped under her chin, lifting her focus back to him. “But I don’t believe you’re being honest with me right now and that’s a problem.”

“I’m sorry I didn’t show yesterday.”

“I appreciate the admission, but I can’t let the action and the attitude go unpunished.”

“What, are you going to spank me?” She chuckled.

“I think it’s time.” He tucked some of her hair behind her ear and his touch lingered along the side of her neck over her ugly mole. “Don’t you agree?”

“Agreed, Sir.” She leaned back on his desk. It was the only thing holding her up.



“Very good. Bend over my desk, please.”

“Right here?” She looked around his office. She didn’t find any windows to the hall, but his windows facing the next building were wide open. “You really are pissed.”

The corner of his lips lifted slightly. “The windows are treated. No one can see in here.”


“You’re stalling.”

“Can you blame me?”

“You do know I’m an accountant, right?” He tugged on her hair. “We like to add.”

Praise for the first book in the Club Blind Series

In the Blind

The Romance Reviews “There is a good mix of heat woven into the storyline, perfect for an erotic romance. With the thrill and excitement of the sex club, the author has created the beginning of an interesting series.”

Night Owl Reviews “The beginning of the story leaves you wanting to know more. It has a unique premise. By the end of the first chapter, I was eager to finish the book…the author takes the reader on a wonderful journey”

Cocktails and Books “There was humor, some angst, romance, and of course, I already mentioned the incredible sex. You’ll be quite satisfied by the end. I know I sure was.”

She tries to go with stars, but the universe seems to have other plans.

Can Jack make Chloe rethink her birthday wish or will she get just what she asked for when she blows out Forty Candles?

bioVirginia Nelson, USA Today bestselling author, likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue. Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.

Guest Post with Charlotte Howard – Love at First Sight @shy_tiger (One Night in Edinburgh )

One Night in Edinburghby Charlotte Howard - sm banner

Does love at first sight exist?

I knew from the moment I met my husband that he would be the man I marry and have children with. But before I met him, I was a non-believer. In fact when I think back to previous relationships, I remember being worried that I would never find The One because I couldn’t see myself settling down. Then I met Rich and realised that you can fall in love with someone before you’ve even met them. Let me explain…

I always wanted to get married, start a family, and be a housewife. I wanted to spend my days writing stories and becoming a best-selling author. I fell in love easily – I said those three words to almost every single boyfriend I ever had, and at the time I meant it. A few weeks later though, and either they cheated or I got bored. When I was 18, I joined the RAF. It didn’t last very long and I discharged myself before even passing out. But I did meet ‘M’ and yes, I fell in love. But he lived on the other side of the country to me. Texting and phoning was expensive, so we started using chatrooms and MSN messenger (for those under the age of 25, this is what we did before Facebook and Twitter). It was in one of these that I started talking to this random bloke. He was bored and killing time, I was waiting for ‘M’ to come online.

A few weeks passed, and ‘M’ and I split up. Not long after that, I left home and moved into a flat without an internet connection. But I still wanted to stay in contact with Rich – so we did this strange thing. We swapped addresses and started writing letters to each other. We became pen pals!

Rich kept asking to meet me IRL, but I wasn’t keen on that. What if he was a mad axe murderer?! Then, after 2 years, I gave in.

On 19 April 2003, I was working in a vet surgery in Lincoln and living in the flat above it. It was a Saturday, and I was on-call along with a receptionist and the vet. I agreed that I would meet Rich, but I didn’t expect him to actually turn up. But he did. And I fell in love. I left my flat, my job, and all the securities I had behind, and in the July moved down to Somerset to be with him. It was a risk, especially as I was terrified that it wouldn’t work out. I mean, I’d fallen in love several times before, so why would this relationship be any different?

But it did work out, and we’re still together. Over the years I’ve come to realise that love at first sight does exist. Not only that, but that I fell in love with Rich’s personality long before we met. And it was this experience that I called on when I wrote for Tirgearr Publishing’s City Nights series, creating One Night in Edinburgh.


One Night in Edinburghby Charlotte Howard - 500blurbChloe Shade has travelled to Edinburgh to meet up with a potential client, and has just twenty-four hours to convince them to sign her contract.
