Today's Book Feature

Unexpected Love (The Love Series), a short contemporary
romance novel

Log Line: 

Two lives brought together unexpectedly. Three souls forever changed.

Book Tag Line:
Ryan Millen’s bachelor life is changed with one phone call. Lynn is a woman in need of financial rescue. A plan develops to help both out of their sudden struggles. Can they save each other from their unexpected challenges, or will outside forces forever pull them apart? 

Book Blurb: 

Ryan Millen loves his one-night-stands without any desire to settle
down into a permanent relationship. To be in a relationship requires work and sacrifice. 

Lynn is struggling to get by day-to-day financially, unable to find a job in a saturated market. Now she’s on her brother's doorstep, begging for a place to stay to find a way to crawl out of the hole she's been swallowed by. 

Ryan's world is turned upside down when one of his one-nighters throws a wrench into his perfect single life. An opportunity crosses Lynn's path that she'd never considered. 

Will Ryan's new world destroy him or can he accept it and move forward with a chance for a life he'd never planned. Can Lynn save Ryan from himself? What happens when they push against the natural draw they have towards one another?
And what happens when Ryan's one-nighter reappears, set out for revenge?

Excerpt:

“How was he today?” Ryan asked Lynn. He'd been keeping a physical distance from her all week, but he couldn't do it any longer. She'd consumed his thoughts. Day and night. Wide awake or out for the count. And each day when he thought he'd be fine, she'd walk through the door, wearing her yoga pants and a simple tee shirt, looking disheveled and entirely edible.
Since her return, they’d been a tiny family. His tiny family. One that he hadn’t planned but now wanted. Man, he wanted Lynn. Wanted her for himself. Wanted her to belong to him. Wanted her in his house, in his bed, in his life twenty-four seven. A novel idea right?
He was sick of the stupid cat and mouse game they’d been playing for over a month. There was an obvious physical attraction. Each brush of their hands, bump of the shoulder, exchange of a bottle, made his body stir to life. Hell, she walked into the room, flicked her long hair over her shoulder and he was a goner. His brother and Mr. Connors had been smacking him upside the head nonstop for the past week.
“Perfect,” she said. “I just laid him down for his nap.” Another personality draw towards her. Lynn adored his son. The way she treated him, like a mamma bear protective of her cub, Ryan found extremely attractive. It felt as if she was accepting him by adoring his son. And by him, he meant him. Not his good looks, hard body, stellar personality. Him. His imperfections along with his strengths.
“Where is everyone?”
“They're all at the Connors. They had to take Beth there because Mike and Jill were getting baby furniture delivered today.”
They were alone.

Do you have a question you’d like commenters to answer relative to your post? (If you ask a question at the end of your blog it makes it much easier for people to think of a comment. Sometimes they want to let you know they came by but they can't think of anything to say. A simple question can get conversations moving perhaps related to your book’s themes):
Unexpected Love is book 2 of a series, but it’s a series without cliffhangers. Each novel can be read as a standalone. Are you a fan of romance series? And if you are, do you prefer cliffhangers or standalone series?

Book Fun Friday Welcomes Syndey St Claire



Book Fun Friday Welcomes Syndey St. Claire!


Bio:

Sydney St. Claire is the pseudonym of Susan Edwards, author of 14 Historical Romances. She loves writing and sharing stories of love, happiness and dreams come. Sydney takes her readers into the world of erotica romance where her characters come together in
explosive passion as they solve life’s problems and find true love
Post Title:
Once Upon A Dom- Fairytales your mother never read you.







 Today's Book Feature:

 Snow & Her Huntsman book three, category: Erotica Romance



 Log Line: 
Can Snow submit to her Huntsman in order to save her business?

Book Tag Line:
Rylee Kincaid will do anything to save her business, even agreeing to be Snow White to Hunter Finnegan’s Huntsman at an upcoming BDSM Fairytale event. The two were once lovers and Hunter is determined to win Rylee’s trust and her heart. Will his secret explain why he had to let her go ten years ago or drive Rylee away for good.

Book Blurb :
Rylee Kincaid’s business is about to go under. Lucky for her, she’s found an investor. Ready to sign papers, she learns her knight in shining armor is Hunter Finnegan, the man who once gave her multiple orgasms then crushed her young, tender heart. Her world comes crashing down as it becomes clear the rich businessman intends a hostile takeover and to cast her out. Then he agrees to discuss a new deal, but only if Rylee will play Snow to his Huntsman at a BDSM fairy tale event.

Hunter has never forgotten the weekend of kinky sex he shared with Rylee in college. Unfortunately, he had to let her go to keep peace in his family. Now he’s back to claim the only woman he’s ever loved. He’ll stop at nothing to make the black-haired, fair-skinned beauty hear the truth of what happened so long ago, even if he has to tie her up. And that’s exactly what he does. But as the Huntsman reawakens the submissive in Snow, Hunter isn’t so sure he can do the same to Rylee’s heart.

Short excerpt of about 300 words :
Rylee couldn’t believe what she’d done. She’d totally lost control, something she’d never done with another man but Hunter. Sex between her and her husband had never come close to the heat level between her and Hunter. Her hands dropped from his shoulders to his chest. Palms flat, she wasn’t sure if she wanted to push him away or bunch her fingers in his shirt and draw him even closer. God, what must he think of her? One kiss, and she’d gone up in flames, like a desperate and hungry woman.
Which was true. But to show it and behave in such a manner horrified her. “I…” She didn’t know what to say.
Hunter stepped away, she assumed to give her time to adjust her clothing. He picked up the invitation from the gray carpet. “My limo will pick you up at two on Thursday.”
“Thursday?” Damn, her mind and body felt as though she were swimming through a thick gel.
Handing her the invite, along with a large envelope he snagged off his desk, he held her gaze. “I’ll see you at Pleasure Manor. Your costumes will be delivered to your office this afternoon.”
He tapped the envelope. “Instructions and rules. I suggest you go get your blood work done this afternoon. You’ll need to bring the results with you.” Hunter handed her the briefcase and her purse and hustled her to the door.
Rylee blinked in confusion. Damn the man for being in complete control while she was a quivering mass of need. But she hated being manipulated, and he was a master. He’d lured her in with hopes and dreams of saving her business and probably used Glorie to make her mad enough that she’d confront him. Now, he’d had the nerve to use her own body against her. “Dammit, Hunter, I never said—”
Hunter halted her with the single lift of his brow. “Your body spoke for you.” He lowered his head and kissed her hard, swallowing her protests. “Thursday. And don’t bother wearing panties.”

Question for Our Dear Reader (YOU!):

Fairytales are a part of our lives. They are among the first stories we’re read and when we learn to read, we read those as well. And a young child also watches a lot of fairytales on DVD’s. So with all this exposure to fairy tales, what’s your favorite fairytale and why?

Book Fun Friday Welcomes Karilyn Bentley




Happy New Year! Wishing you and yours the best happy prosperous 2015!

Introducing This Week's Guest Karilyn Bentley.




 
Bio

computer at home instead of in a cube, drove her to pen her own works, blending fantasy and romance mixed with a touch of funny.
Karilyn lives with her own hunky hero, two dogs, and a handful of colorful saltwater fish.





Book Feature: New Urban Fantasy Release, DEMON LORE, by Karilyn Bentley



Log Line:  New job description: Killing demons and their minions

Book Tag Line: An empath nurse finds a mysterious bracelet that can destroy demons, only to discover she must learn to fight or become the next victim.

Book Blurb: Gin Crawford has enough problems dealing with her empath abilities. Finding out she's the world's newest demon-slayer is the last thing she needs. Unfortunately, when she slips on a mysterious bracelet she is given no other choice. On the plus side, her new gig comes with Tall, Dark and Handsome, a mage who may or may not have her best interests at heart. Thrust into a power-play between good and evil, Gin must choose a side before she becomes the next victim in the ongoing battle.

Excerpt
The evil man-thing stands on my porch, his lips turning in a menacing smile of death. I don’t need to touch him to know he wants me dead. Muscles freeze, trapping my breath in my lungs. Like a rabbit in view of a wolf, I’m immobilized, waiting for death’s blow. Time slows, his gaze locks on mine, trapping me in place.
Move, move, move! My mind screams as the man’s fingers twitch.
But the spike of adrenaline explodes into my limbs too late to stop the backhand blow slamming across my jaw.
I superman it halfway across the living room. Land on the hardwood floor in a thud of pain-ridden limbs. My jaw morphs into a screaming ball of nerves. My head no sooner hits the floor than I hear the bracelet scream, a high-pitched wail quivering through my skin like vibrations from a tuning fork. The bracelet tightens around my wrist, cutting off the circulation, and then it loosens with a pop at the same time I hear the door click closed.

My head spins, but I refuse to lie on the floor waiting to be killed, so I attempt to stand. Evil Guy laughs as I ass-plant it. Laughs as a moan escapes my lips. He takes a step toward me, right arm drawn back for a hit. His fist hurls toward my face, but I manage to block it with my left arm. My right arm, the one with the bracelet, shoves forward, slamming into his chest.
His black eyes widen, mouth open in surprise, his hands fluttering to his chest before dropping. I stare at my hand, stare hard, for I’m as surprised as Evil Guy. The bracelet had become a sword, a long, thin spike of metal extending from the silver links, straight into Evil Guy’s heart.
I’m not sure which scares me more, Evil Guy paying me a visit or the fact the bracelet performed a morphing trick.

Question for YOU Reader:
If you had a magical bracelet, what would you want it to be able to do?
