Cool new book-Lauren Dane's ONCE AND AGAIN

Lauren is one of my auto-buys, and when I found out she was returning to the location of the Chase Brothers series, I was so happy.

This story is the first in a new series in that setting, and I really enjoyed it (yup- got a sneak peek!) If you like family sagas in small towns, you need to take a look at this and the Chase series.

This time, he plans to do it with class. Style. And more than a little groveling…

Petal, Georgia, Book 1

Seven years ago, Lily Travis was only too glad to see her hometown of Petal, Georgia, in her rearview mirror. Thanks to her father running off with a twenty-year-old, though, here she is, trying to pick up the pieces. First order of business: meet with her brother’s teacher in a quest to pull his grades out of a downward spiral.

Nathan Murphy is pretty much resigned to his bachelor status—until he looks up from his desk to see an all-grown-up Lily walking into his classroom. Of all the women who turned out to be totally wrong for him, she’s the only one who felt right. At least until his foolish, immature mistake drove her away.

Lily has to admit that time has been more than kind to gorgeous, sexy Nathan. Except there’s no room on her full plate for another complication. Especially with a man who broke her heart once before.

With a little help from his friends, Nathan has a plan to rekindle the flame. It isn’t long before they’re burning up the sheets. Winning her heart? That’s another matter.

Sweet Samhain Romances

It’s Tuesday, which means it’s release day in the publishing world, and I wanted to let you know about three new books available from Samhain. These books are sweet romances–all the plot and tension and final HEA of a romance without the main characters hitting the sheets on the page. Now, I have no objections to explicit details (obviously!) but I’m also a fan of the slow build-up. The glances and the simmering need and the waiting for a good reason until you’re ready to scream…

:D

So I was pleased when I heard Samhain was putting out a trio of sweet stories in their Springtime: Come Rain or Come Shine anthology. I haven’t read the books yet, but I’ve got them on my ereader and I’m looking forward to getting to dive in. And being able to suggest them to my mom when I’m done.

To celebrate these books, and Samhain who is committed to putting out quality books without requiring a steam factor, I’m giving away 3 copies of each book–I’ll give them out on Friday in time for weekend reading.

SOMETHING BLUE

It’s bad enough losing the wedding rings, let alone your heart…

Josh Hamnett is best man at his mate’s wedding, and he’s determined that nothing’s going to go wrong on the big day. That’s before ex-girlfriend Kate Summerton appears in the church, looking mouthwateringly good in her tight red satin dress. Her maid of honor’s dress.

Ceremony, reception, speeches, the first dance…he’s got to go through them all by the side of the woman who still haunts his dreams. And to top it off, she’s not wearing any underwear.

Their break-up three years ago was explosive, and Kate was sure she’d never forgive how he behaved. But now all the memories are coming back—the good as well as the bad. As their wedding duties keep throwing them into each other’s company, Kate can’t ignore the resurging chemistry between them—or the nagging thought that maybe, this could be the start of a second chance.

Product Warnings: Contains sexual chemistry hot enough to turn sand to glass—best read while wearing oven gloves and dark shades.

AIN’T NO SUNSHINE

Love may overcome dark family secrets…but a grieving ghost could fire the final shot.
Boone Butler can shut out the memories that made him a war hero, but he’s compelled to follow the Sorrowful Angel’s mournful wails back to Harlan County, Kentucky. They can only mean one thing: Delia’s in trouble. Even if it’s been over between them for twelve long years, she can’t stop him from seeing her safe.

Delia Concannon isn’t sure if the cries she’s been hearing in Bogey Holler are echoes of the past, or portents of more heartache in her future. All she can do is keep running her diner and wait for the next in a long string of misfortunes that started when she fell for Boone. Their love began despite their families’ longstanding feud—and ended when Boone’s brother murdered her father.

Now Boone has come knocking on her door.

One look, and Boone remembers why loving her was worth defying his family. He still has nothing to offer a woman like her, but he can’t stand seeing her living in the shadow of rising danger. Delia’s not running, though. Even when the Angel’s cries grow louder…

Product Warnings: Contains a snarky best friend, her cantankerous grandmother, a hard-headed hero with a soft heart, too many pick-up trucks to count, and one mention of fried okra.

LET ME CALL YOU SWEETHEART

Hollywood made him a star. She makes him want to be a better man.
Charlotte Jeeves, “Charlie” to anyone not pulling her over or collecting her taxes, is the only one in town who’s not excited about her new neighbor, TV actor Jeeves Allencaster. It’s not “cute” how they share a name, and so not charming that he steals her muffin before they’ve even met. The last thing she wants is some slick Hollywood type turning her safe, small-town haven into a circus.

If the locals have their way, though, she and Jeeves will be dating by…well, it depends on who you ask—and how much they’ve invested in the betting pool.

Jeeves hates Hollwood. Mostly he just hates the way it’s changed him. Port Grable is the total opposite of LaLa Land—the perfect place to rediscover himself. His plan didn’t include hooking up with the bitter—yet undeniably lush—girl next door. She’s not his type, yet he can’t get her off his mind.

Trouble is, to thaw the ice around her heart, he’ll have to show her the real man behind the Hollywood charade. If he still exists…

Product Warnings: Baked-good larceny is prohibited by law in many states. Please seek competent legal advice before trying this at home.

Moira Rogers scores again!

The second book in their Building Sanctuary series releases today, and you know you want it. ;)

Victor left behind a life of crime to focus on a new vision–helping his alpha build an island sanctuary for werewolves. Harsh experiences prepared him for the hardships involved, except when it comes to dealing with the young female refugees of the brutal Boston pack–especially Simone, who rouses his inner wolf like no other. A woman he must resist, or risk becoming just the latest man to make demands on her.

Born to wealth and privilege, Simone lost everything when she fell for the seductive whispers of the textile heir who turned her. Once adrift, now she is fired by a new sense of purpose–the chance to broker peace between werewolves and European wizards. Yet even as Europe beckons, her instincts–the same ones that led to trouble before–keep drawing her back to Victor.

During a sailing trip to the mainland for supplies, Victor finds it impossible to hold himself aloof from the warm, engaging Simone. And when a winter storm traps them together during a full moon, she breaks through his walls so easily and completely, the question is no longer how he’ll stay away, but how he’ll let her go.

Product Warnings

This novella contains werewolves engaged in such improbable (but legal) activities as lobster fishing and sailing during nor’easters. The breaking and entering and instinct-driven sex on every surface in someone else’s summer cottage is a little more criminal.

Cool Books- Insatiable

I tried making the cover smaller. Really I did.

I’ll just wait until everyone is ready to tear their eyes away. Or maybe not, since I think I could stare at him for a long, long time.

Lauren Dane’s latest is out today–the third book in the Federation Series, a futuristic world that melds fantastic world building with her usual extraordinarily strong characters.

The first book, Undercover, is one of my all time favorite books by Lauren. It’s now got a rival in Insatiable.

The players:

Daniel Haws–member of the Phantom Corps dedicated to making the war between the ‘Verses turn in the favour of right.

Carina Fardelle- a woman of infinite strength hidden behind innocent softness.

The plot:

At it’s most basic, this is a retrieval story. There is information to be gathered, and Daniel Haws is the best man to go and get it. But the layers within the story make it so much more.

Carina is the daughter of the Supreme Commander, a part of the side of evil through no choice or desire of her own. As the struggle escalates between Federation and Imperial ‘Verses, the information she and her mother have gathered becomes vital to the fight. Daniel will get her out, retrieve the data, and the tide can turn.

But it’s never that easy. There’s more at stake than a hidden information capsule. There’s the retrieval of rights torn away from Carina over the years by a power hungry father, the fight to gain back a heart that has begun to be hardened by the war. There’s dealing with guilt and looking to the future even as they try to survive the present.

I was particularly struck by the character of Carina. Lauren’s heroines are always strong, determined and intelligent women. In Carina I saw something slightly different–a softer side, less edgy and snarky. Still intelligent, but with an innocent touch. Her deep determination to gain what she wanted was done in just the right way for me to admire her, and see her as a person of great value. She was the perfect blend of heroine to mesh with the hero.

Insatiable is a book that I believe can stand on it’s own–even though it’s in a series, you could dive in now and not only understand what is happening, but be intrigued for more of this fantastic world Dane has created.

Cool books- Texas Tangle

So here’s an interesting twist– Leah Braemel is a fellow Canadian–and even though she lives out east in Ontario, and I’m nearly dipping my toes in the Pacific, we spend a fair bit of time together online. Thank you LORD for the internet!!

We’re both tried and true pantsers–ie  we start writing and see where the story takes us. Well, that is we WERE pantsers until we started chatting and poking and prodding each other, and we’re now coming up with new ways to get the stories down on paper for you to enjoy. We’re calling it plotsing. :D We still get to go wild at times, but we’re trying to at least cut off a few of the bunnytrails that can distract us.

So why share that with you? Couple reasons. One, Leah has a new story out tomorrow. I got to see the progress as she worked this into a full story.

And interestingly enough, I also have a book out tomorrow! Lovely coincidence.

When we talked about doing a little promo, she was pretty blogged out, so I decided to interview her instead. Actually, we went to Chat and I’m copying and pasting parts. Ready? No…no you’re not ;)

—-

me:

okay, diving into something…

Leah: ok

splash

me: tell me your first response to the following—

me: giggle. I need more coffeeeeeeeee

Leah: I’m cutting down today, need sleeeeeep

okay, anyway, dive away, I’ll behave. Sorta

*how do you take your coffee*

and through an IV is totally an answer…

Leah: liquid creamer (flavored) and a spoonful of Splenda (I’m not allowed milk or any dairy products in the morning, nor am I allowed soya, so no dry creamer, so I have to buy the expensive bottles of liquid creamer) and no sugar allowed either :( I only recently started drinking coffee because of the no-milk issue, used to be a tea granny but can’t stand tea without milk and I have this big 16 ounce mug with kitty cats on it. I go through three of them usually in a morning

me: tea with milk?

ICK!

Leah: the first one is pretty much inhaled

me: you need better teas

Leah: hey, English parents here. milk in the tea. Although I can take tea with honey and lemon, it’s okay, but not all the time

me: (oops–sorry, forgot the British influence…)

Leah: LOVE English or Irish breakfast tea — best over in England. Think it’s something in their water, cuz i bought some over there and brought it home. Not the same

me: double bergamot English breakfast is GOOD

Leah: don’t like Earl Grey shudder like drinking perfume

like oolong

me: sooo funny how all our taste buds are different…onward

*favorite breakfast*

Leah: banana bread french toast

me: *colour for a heroes eyes*

Leah: grey

me: go Canadian spelling!!

*most mispelt or typoed words*

Leah: form instead of from

thign instead of thing

*colour of the walls in the room you usually work in*

Leah: white — I REALLY want to paint them, but it’s Gizmo Guy’s office and I’m waiting until Guitar Hero moves out and then I’ll probably paint his room hunter green and work up there

me: lol

*three places in Texas*

Leah: Arlington, Cleburne, and Fort Worth

me: *where you’d like to go for a short getaway*

Leah: BANFFF!!!!!

long, short, I don’t care, I want to go back there

me: LOL!! *where would you go if you had 3+ months?*

Leah: England

me: which part?

(hint, it’s BIG!)

Leah: everywhere in England — I’d start in York, then hit the Cotswolds, then leave England and head to Wales

*worst time waster as an author*

Leah: Mahjong

me: lol

really?

Leah: came with the computer, part of Windows Media Center

*fill in the next thing that happens–give me three different options–hero walks around corner of room and find heroine is…*

Leah: wrestling with some repair on her car

under her desk hooking up some new device to her computer

trying on lingerie

me: love your list!!

Leah: (she’s not trying to repair her car while trying on lingerie though)

*one of your favorite scenes in TT*

Leah: There’s a love scene towards the end that I really like, it hints at something more between Dillon and Brett but leaves it to the readers’ imagination

Leah: and the “dinner scene” where they go to visit Dillon’s family and Dillon’s grandmother guides the conversation — she’s the type of old lady I plan on being

~~~

That was fun…like most of our conversations! Need to know a little more about Texas Tangle? Here’s the blurb, and tomorrow the book goes live over at Carina. I hope you take a minute to check this out. :D Cowboys, menages. What’s not to love?

~~~

Thanks to her cheating ex-husband and her thieving brother, all horse breeder Nikki Kimball has left is a bruised heart, an overdrawn bank account and an empty home. When sex-on-legs Dillon Barnett and his brooding foster-brother Brett Anderson start showing more than just neighborly attention, Nikki is intrigued…and a little gun-shy.

Dillon and Brett have a history; back in high school, the two friends fought a bitter battle over Nikki. Now, ten years later, Brett still longs to be the man in Nikki’s life, but he’s determined to stand back and let Dillon win Nikki’s heart.

Society says Nikki must choose between the two men she loves. Is Nikki strong enough to break all the rules in order to find happiness?
