Release Blitz & Giveaway ~ November by Audrey Carlan




Title: November
Series: Calendar Girl #11
Author: Audrey Carlan
Publisher: Waterhouse Press
 Release Date: November 30, 2015



Blurb

Life, Love, Laughter.

Three things I never expected to experience in the month of giving thanks, but that is just what I received. Wes had survived Hell on Earth, and was back where he was meant to be…in my arms and my bed. For good. There would be no breaking us apart after the trauma we experienced up to this point.

My new job with Century Production sent me to the big apple to interview celebrities for a special segment on being thankful. What is a girl to do when she has an entire host of celebrity friends from her past year of travels? You better believe I called up my friends Mason Murphy, all-star pitcher for the Red Sox, and Anton Santiago, the Latin Lov-ah, to participate. They were all too happy to oblige, only my guy’s feathers were a bit ruffled by the ease with which they came running.

Add in my new family and you’ve got a fairytale Thanksgiving. Except for one tiny detail…the single seat at the table, left open by the hole in my heart that only one person could fill.

***

In the eleventh book of the Calendar Girl serial, Mia is off to New York City to film a segment for her new job. Now that her debt has been paid, and the threat from her ex is gone, she no longer has to live life as an escort. Only life has thrown her some new challenges to round out her year.

Each installment in the Calendar Girl Serial will release every month throughout 2015.

Warning: This book is designed for audiences 18+ due to language and graphic sexual content.

Blurb

Before moving to southern Alabama, and before realizing my daughter was getting older and my life, devoted solely to her and my career, was in desperate need of change...I would've said that fate was a myth. Opening up to the possibility of needing more and admitting that loving someone could be worth risking my heart for capture, the chance I was taking only became clear after one look into his eyes...

I left that life behind and became a different man. One vigilant to keep others at arms length. One incapable of love. Letting someone in could prove dangerous, and could resurrect a past capable of killing us both. So why, after years of indifference to women or the possibility of more than a one night stand, would one look from her make me want to change it all..

Two souls lost to their pasts
Brought together by chance...
Torn apart by destiny...

Release Blitz & Giveaway ~ Lucky Penny by L.A. Cotton




Title: Lucky Penny
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: November 30, 2015



Blurb

I was his lucky Penny. He was my light in the dark, hope in despair. Our bond was one of survival, friendship... first love.

But then we were ripped apart and Blake Weston became the memory I turned to when everything else in my life fell apart.

Seven years later, a summer working at Camp Chance is supposed to be my fresh start. Beautiful scenery and the chance to better the lives of foster children--kids like me. But when my eyes land on him across the fire, time stands still and feelings come rushing back to the surface. I thought I'd moved on, tucked him away in my heart. One look into his soulful blue eyes and I know I'm wrong. Blake Weston can heal the broken parts of me. Restore my hope. Love me.

It's our second chance. A sign we are supposed to be together.

Isn't it?

I was twelve when I survived the accident that killed my parents. Fourteen when I survived the devil. And sixteen, when I survived a heartbreak of the worst kind.


But in my twenty-three years, Blake Weston might just be the first thing I won't survive.

Excerpt

Marissa didn’t follow me. It was most likely she had pieced together our story after Blake’s song. How could she not? It was as if he had weaved our entire relationship into his lyrics. I could feel his sixteen-year-old self singing every line to my sixteen-year-old self. Although, I was pretty certain the sixteen-year-old Blake I’d known then had no clue how to play the guitar.

After washing the tearstains from my face, I brushed my teeth. It was still early, but I couldn’t face going back out there, so I changed into my shorts and tank top and climbed into bed. Sleep would be impossible, but at least here, I was safe.

Most people felt lonely in solitude, but I welcomed the silence. I embraced it even. Something about the quiet, the knowledge no one else was around, comforted me. I knew it made me different. I didn’t need a shrink to tell me that, but it didn’t change the fact that I found sanctuary in being alone.

I lay there not really allowing myself to think. Thinking was dangerous; it led to remembering, and my memories were stained with pain and hurt and the kinds of things that made most people’s nightmares look like a walk in the park. Instead, I tracked the uneven cabin ceiling. My eyes followed the planes of the wood from one end to the other and back again until they grew heavy.

A knock on the door startled me sending my already restless heart into overdrive and I rubbed at my eyes.

“Hello?” I called out hoping to hear Marissa’s voice, but I knew it wasn’t her. She wouldn’t have knocked; she would have barged right in and demanded answers.

“Penny, it’s me.”

I squeezed my eyes shut, but my mind betrayed me as an image of Blake’s face filled my head.

Another knock.

“Penny.”

Forcing myself to sit up, I swung my legs over the edge of the bed. He wasn’t going away. Blake—our connection—was something I was going to have to deal with sooner or later, and from Blake’s admissions over the last few days, it seemed that he was making the decision for me.

My legs were like lead as I walked to the door. It swung open and Blake stood there looking at me with such reverence in his eyes I almost crumpled. Maybe I did crumple because, before my head had time to process what was happening, I was in Blake’s arms, and he was holding on to me like he needed me to breathe.

“I’ve missed you so much. I’ve tried to stay away, to give you space, but I can’t. I can’t spend another day feeling like you might slip through my fingers again.”

One of Blake’s hands buried itself in my hair and cradled my head holding me to him. My face pressed up against the collar of his hoodie, and I breathed him in. He smelled familiar, like damp grass and fresh air, of a time when things were less complicated, and my heart ached for us. At that moment, we weren’t two strangers reunited by chance; we were sixteen-year-old Blake and Penny.

And we needed each other to survive.

Tell me a secret...

CJ Carmichael hasn't been able to get the vivacious blonde he spent four delirious days with off his mind. The blonde who was completely off-limits, but he couldn't deny.

Tell me a secret....

CJ had no intention of pursuing her, but Tara Stevens knew what she wanted and it was him. Now six months later, their time together still haunts him. As much as he's tried to talk himself out of seeing her again, the craving is just too powerful.

Tell me a secret...

Tara is more than willing to spend an entire fantasy weekend with CJ. More than willing to hand herself over to him completely and fulfill his every desire. More than willing to pretend he owns her despite their age difference and Kayne's disapproval.

Tell me a secret...

Sometimes fantasy becomes a reality. Sometimes people fall in love before they even know it- before they even know each other- and after it’s too late.

Tell me a secret...


Sometimes, beneath the sweetest secrets are the most deceptive lies.

Cover Reveal ~ Break Even by Lisa De Jong

Cover & Excerpt Reveal

Break Even by Lisa De Jong
Release Date: December 27, 2015
Cover Designer: Mae I Design and Photography
Photo Credit: My MoJo Photo




Blurb: 

My story isn’t a love story … not the typical kind anyway.

As a lawyer, I’m used to discovery, but I never saw this one coming. 

Every day, River gives me ten reasons to stay away, and then eleven reasons 

why I can't. Our relationship was to remain strictly business, or at least I 

tried. 

Four years of marriage, and everything with Cole has changed. I never knew 

two people who lived together could be so distant. But I’m not ready to give 

up on him.

One man wants to break me.

The other is just trying to get even. 

Both are lying to me.





Excerpt 1 ~

He puts the SUV in park and turns his body toward me. “Most things 

you can, Mrs. Mason. Hang around me for a little while, and you’ll find out 

how.”

“For instance,” I tease, still feeling some of the vodka. “You can’t 

make me take your case. If I wanted to, I could dump you as a client and 

there wouldn’t be a damn thing you could do about it.”

He scoffs. “But you won’t.”

“How do you know that?” I grin back at him. Conversing with River 

has become a game.

“Because right now, I’m the most exciting thing you have going on in 

your life.” He brushes a stray piece of hair away from my eyes. “You get up 

every morning and throw on one of your expensive business suits. You wear 

your hair the same way, take your coffee the same way, and leave for work 

at exactly the same time. Your life revolves around the four walls that make 

up your little office, but your clients—they aren’t like me. You work late 

because your husband either isn’t home or he’s home but he’s not really 

there, not the way you want him to be anyway. That’s your life, Marley.”

“You don’t know anything.” My voice bellows.

“Then tell me what part of that I got wrong.”

I open my mouth to argue, but he has me pegged. One freaking day, 

and he has me all figured out. 

“I need to go,” I say, pushing the door open. I punch the numbers into 

garage door and pray it opens before he has any thought of coming after me. 

It works the first time, and as soon as I close the door and walk into the 

kitchen, I hear his SUV pull away. 

This isn’t going to work. 



Excerpt 2 ~

“Cole!” I scream, curling my fingers around the edge of the counter. 

He pulls out slowly then thrusts back inside me; there’s nothing soft and 

tender about it. 

During the first few years of our marriage he made love to me. His 

lips would brush against my skin from head to toe and his hands would 

caress my inner thighs until I ached for him to be inside of me. 

He’d tease. 

He had me gasping for breath before he even reached where I needed 

him most. 

He knew exactly how I liked it; it was insane bliss. It was the reason I 

sped home from work every night. It was one of the reasons I knew he was 

the one—our maddening physical connection translated into every aspect of 

our relationship. Every last inch of me was wrapped around him. 

Everything: heart, soul, and body. 

He pushes in again until it aches, burying his head deep in the crook 

of my neck. 

“Don’t stop,” I moan, slipping my fingers between us. I need to come 

so badly. Three weeks and four days… that’s how long it’s been. 

Sex isn’t about me lately, and it hasn’t been for a while. 

His teeth dig into my skin. “I can’t stop myself, baby. You feel so 

good.” 

“Cole, please,” I beg, rubbing my fingers in circles. If he notices, he 

doesn’t acknowledge my need. 

He thrusts all the way in. “Christ, Marley,” he murmurs against my 

skin as he releases into me. My heart sinks, but my desire is stuck at an all 

time high. 

My orgasms have become as rare as a full moon. In less than an hour, 

it will be three weeks and five days since I last felt what it was like to clench 

around him over and over again. 

My breathing is heavy. My fingers still. His head still pressed against 

my neck as his fingers run gently along my spine. 

“Did I hurt you?” he whispers against my skin. 

Not the way you’re thinking.
