Gorgeous cover for BLIND LOVE by Kelly Elliot

 

Harley and I had our whole lives planned out, until her plans changed, and those plans didn’t include me.

After years spent trying to get the love of my life out of my head and repair my too-damaged heart, I thought I was finally moving on…but life sure has a funny way of letting you know when those best-laid plans are about to be turned upside down.

My entire world was rocked when Harley unexpectedly moved back to Oak Springs. Every miserable moment I’d spent trying to get over her and every hour I’d wasted trying to erase her from my life came back to haunt me the minute she walked into my office, fear in her eyes, and asked me for help. Would I…or better yet, could I walk away from her this time after all that she had put me through?

What I really needed to know is would I be able to forge ahead with the future I had so meticulously planned—one that didn’t include Harley—or will her return finally open my eyes to a future full of endless possibilities?

 

Blind Love is book five in the Cowboys and Angels series.

#1 LIE by T. Gephart (#1 Series, #4)

Coming 6th June

Working in Hollywood meant Jessica Dawson was used to lying. As an assistant to one of the biggest agents in town, biting her tongue and spewing out sugarcoated untruths were an almost daily occurrence. But fabricating alternate realities never spilled into her personal life, until three months ago when she told the biggest lie of all.

While her dear gran lay on her deathbed, Jessica mentioned she’d met her soul mate. It had been Gran’s last wish to see all her grandkids settled down before she went to see Jesus. And as the only one still single, Jessica didn’t have the heart to disappoint her.

No one expected Gran to make a miraculous recovery.

Now, Gran was expecting to meet Jessica’s perfect man at her cousin’s wedding, which meant she needed to find a perfect man fast. Hiring a professional was the only solution.

Enter Dave Larsson, younger brother to one of Hollywood’s elite.

Sexy, funny and just as smoldering hot as his super-famous sibling—he had talent and charm to spare. But most importantly, he was affordable and available.

All she needed to do was haul Dave home, have him meet Gran and the family, then shortly after the wedding, “break up” with him.

It was either that, or admit to her #1 Lie.

Only thing she didn’t plan on was the bigger lie she would need to tell herself when it was time to let him go.

Meet the Author

 

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.

With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap. Her lack of “plan” has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history. She’d tell you all about it, but the statute of limitations hasn’t expired yet. But all those crazy twists and turns have led her to a career she loves—writing romantic comedy.

When she isn’t filling pages with sassy and sexy characters with attitude, she’s living her own reality show in the ‘burbs of Melbourne with her American husband, two teenage children, and her fur child—Woodley.

She loves adventure, to laugh, travel, and strives to live her life to the fullest.

ROUGH EDGE RELEASE BANNER2.jpg

“My new obsession. I’m eating every word of this series and begging for more.”

— Alessandra Torre, New York Times bestselling author

rough-edge-one-final.jpg

New York Times Bestseller CD Reiss goes back to her roots with a dark, intense tale that breaks boundaries and shatters expectations in
Rough Edge.

 

Who do you love?

The decent man you married?

The surgeon shattered during the war?

The emotionless Dominant who appears in his eyes more and more often?

All of them?

Even when he breaks you?

Even when he makes you beg?

Is there no pain or pleasure he cannot deliver?

What will you sacrifice to heal him?

Will he sacrifice his sanity to protect you from the exquisite torture of his cruel hands?

This is more than a marriage.

It’s a crack at the edges of the mind and heart.

It’s a promise written in the heavens and a wound splitting the sky.

Love may be the death of both of you.

ROUGH EDGE TEASER WAR.jpg

5 +++ Stars

Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse

If there’s one thing Reiss executes exceedingly well is the research she does for her stories. Rough Edge is no exception. Facts are presented in a gritty and realistic manner that more than skirt around the dark side of eroticism and as the title implies, is rough-edged. And it’s beyond brilliant. Okay, so if said facts have been twisted a tad, it’s a means to an end but that’s the author’s prerogative, right? Even though the subject in question is a hard pill to swallow, some actions are even harder to understand for the players. That being said, the author’s outstanding narrative helped me become totally invested in her protagonists. I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said I lost sleep over Captain Caden St. John and his wife, Dr. Greyson Fraizer’s dilemma. At times, I found it difficult to collect coherent thoughts regardless of what these two professionals were up against. So, prepare yourselves for a roller-coaster ride of emotions and an intensity like you’ve never experienced before from Reiss’ storytelling.

Caden and Greyson’s narrative is an unusual one in the respect that there’s no build up to their love story. Told from a dual point of view in past tense, flashbacks soon put me in the picture. I learnt where they met and how an all-consuming attraction, boundless lust and a professional and personal respect flowers into what appears to be a solid problem-free marriage. By no means was it made in heaven, albeit all the points for being a successful one are there. I wanted them to be invincible, they did, too. Yet Reiss doesn’t make it as simple as that. She’s gone back to her writing roots and I folks, wasn’t just jumping for joy, I was blinkin’ well happy dancing!

In the beginning, there wasn’t a second where I felt unduly concerned about Caden and Grayson’s relationship. Stronger than a team, ‘their togetherness’ seemed to rule so clearly that the author’s vivid account of their feelings fooled me into thinking everything was tickety-boo. Reiss does this to the reader very cleverly. Result…it didn’t take long for me to let my frustration be heard in the way of some rather unladylike expressions, because when it came to the crunch, I suffered as much as her characters. Perhaps I’d relaxed a little too much into their story or maybe it’s my blind faith in this lifelong institution called marriage… whatever, while lapping up the author’s characters’ anecdotes, I noticed that the very love balance achieved showed signs of cracking. And I, in all my naïvty, believed said cracks could be fixed or brushed under the carpet. This is serious stuff though. Questions arise. Some are answered quickly; others, the ones I wanted to know like yesterday, were left pending. So what caused the last straw to break? How deeply ingrained is the crack and secondly, is there anyone sufficiently trustworthy and prepared to help Caden? The answer is closer to home than you can imagine…ahem, don’t think too much…just one-click and find out!

I couldn’t have wished to meet a lovelier and more generous person like Greyson. She’s out of her comfort zone, making the best of it with style and know-how. All said and done, in her professional capacity, dealing with the most complicated of cases under whatever circumstance is what she does well. And more important are words of encouragement from the man she worships. Little does she know her personal life would be thrown off course, turned inside out and left feeling alone in that very city she’d quickly adapted to.

Caden knows something is very wrong in his marriage when both he and Greyson come back to what is considered civilization. He adores her. His only way of expressing his feelings will make you sit up straight, turn the pages even quicker than you had been and damn well hope for the best. Get ready; something strange is lurking, it won’t go away, it’s growing stronger. Excuse me if I say he’s the bee’s knees personified. The imperfectly perfect swoon-worthy dirty-talking hero who had me at the drop of a hat made my heart bleed for him. And my heart cried out even louder for his wife.

I wouldn’t be letting on if I told you what Caden does for a living as it’s in the synopsis. Nevertheless, for lovers of CD’s penmanship and newbies included, (the cadence in her words are layered, fluid and stunningly evocative), I’d highly recommend going in blind. It’s all about the element of surprise in this book, all said and done, this is a psychological headbanger of the first degree that oozes angst and passionate eroticism. What more can I say except thank goodness On the Edge, the next book in The Edge series releases soon. Bravo Reiss! Five +++ stars.

About the Author

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

EXCERPT

Nolan Wood checked his watch as he glanced around the house. Shelby’s house. Or it had started out that way anyway. Now it was his, too. Just as much as she was his.
With a shake of his head, he realized he was smiling. Not that he wasn’t usually—on the whole, he was a pretty laid-back, happy kinda guy. But since he met Shel, it took a rock solid effort to wipe the smile off his face. His Shelby. His paradox. The buttoned-up woman who’d let a loose cannon like him into her life—and in the process had changed him completely.
They’d been together for months now, but he’d known right away that she was special. And that feeling just kept getting stronger, until sometimes when he was around her he thought he might burst if he couldn’t release the pressure.
Then again, that’s one reason why he loved his radio show; that was one hell of a pressure release, after all.
Although it wasn’t quite as good as sex…
The thought seemed to shove him around, and he turned to face the suitcase he’d left by the door. For a second, he frowned. Afraid that maybe he was doing this all wrong.
But it was too late now. He’d already made his decision, his plans, and he was diving in.
He pulled the old-fashioned tape recorder out of his backpack. He’d thought it had a fun vintage flair when he’d found it in the station’s dusty storeroom along with a pack of unused cassettes. He’d snagged the device and the tapes, then recorded the message. Now, he put the cued-up cassette into the recorder, checked that the batteries were good, and added a Post-it note to the top. He left the whole thing on her coffee table. All things considered, much better than a printed note.
Then he drew in a nervous breath, grabbed his suitcase, and gave the inside of the house one last, long look.
This was it, he thought as he headed for the door. For better or for worse, everything was about to change.

Veggiedillas with Avocado Dipping Sauce made by Sharon Thérèse at Kindle Friends Forever

When KP suggested preparing a dish for this tour, I jumped at the chance. However, I never expected to have problems finding some of the American ingredients for the delish recipes offered. Veggiedillas accompanied with an avocado dip I could do though. Saying that, we’re very spoilt for choice in Mallorca. Mercado Olivar in Palma city is an array of colours, smells, extremely fresh produce and tempting nibbles. I bought the vegetables there, the tortillas, seasoning and grated cheese in a local supermarket. Of course, we all know the Mediterranean diet is a healthy one and to my mind of thinking, this one fitted the bill perfectly! Also, it’s quick and easy to prepare, mouthwatering and a welcome change from what we usually eat!

VEGGIEDILLAS FILLING

4 tablespoons of butter

1/4 cup water

1 cup of sliced onion

8 burrito size flour tortillas

1 cup of sliced baby bella mushrooms

Nonstick cooking spray

1 cup of sliced bell pepper (red, yellow or green)

2 cups of shredded Mexican cheese blend

1 packet of taco seasoning mix

In a medium skillet over low heat, melt butter and sauté onions, mushrooms, and bell pepper for 8-10 minutes. Add taco seasoning and water. Simmer for 5 more minutes and remove from heat. In a medium skillet over low heat, coat with cooking spray and lay a tortilla flat in the skillet. Cover half of the tortilla with sautéed veggies and cheese. Then fold the empty side on top of the mixture and allow to cook for 2 minutes, pressing down with a spatula. Next, flip the quesadilla and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from heat and repeat this process with remaining ingredients. Cut quesadillas into thirds and serve with Avocado Dipping Sauce.

The first step.

As you can see, I’ve cut the peppers and onion into thin strips, and sliced the baby bella mushrooms.

    

Oops, vocabulary issues in the kitchen!

I thought my knowledge of AmE vocabulary was quite good; however, ‘skillet’ had escaped me. So even before starting, I had to search for it in Google images. You see, us Brits use a ‘frying pan’ in our kitchens! Four tablespoons of olive oil were used instead of butter as it is rarely used for cooking in Spain, olive oil being the general preference. I really liked that the veggies were only cooked for 8 to 10 minutes, just under al dente. Any more cooking time and they would have caramelized. The spices were then added and simmered with the minimum amount of water for a couple of minutes, giving the mix a nice bite, too!

    

The cooking spray.

“What the blinkin’ heck is that?” I asked myself. I didn’t feel so bad about coating the ‘frying pan’ with the minimum amount of olive oil with kitchen towel once I’d found out what it was.

I got a tad nervous!

I can flip an Spanish omelette with twelve eggs, but who on earth can flip a quesadilla with all those ingredients oozing out? “Easy-peasy Sharon; follow the instructions to the letter and you’ll flipping well flip it!” Yep, I do tend to talk to myself while preparing new dishes! So, this is where all the scrumptiousness is melded together by pressing down each side with the spatula and cooked for a couple of minutes with the grated cheese, of course. And et voilà, I did it!

The dip!

Hmm, I’ve been holding back the healthiest must-eat-everyday-fruit. Guys, eat AVOCADOS! This dip is also great for a crudités platter, for kids dipping crisps or nachos, for accompanying salads, and I won’t even begin to tell you how good it is for our hair, skin and eyes. I never ever thought about mixing avocado with Greek yogurt, lime juice (I used lemon juice as I have a lemon tree in the garden), crushed garlic and a pinch of salt! The result is an explosion of taste buds! Put all the ingredients in a blender or even mash them together with a fork.

AVOCADO DIPPING SAUCE

2 avocados

1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon salt

Juice of 1 lime

   

   

I’d like to show my gratitude to KP at InkSlinger PR for inviting me to take part in J. Kenner and Suzanne M. Johnson‘s tour.
Did I have fun in the kitchen! Take a look at the pics to see the result!

BLURB

Trent McNeil was a classic trust-fund kid until he watched a team of firefighters save his family home. From that moment on, he rebelled against the path his parents were determined to keep him on. Now a San Diego firefighter, he knows he’ll eventually be expected to take over the family empire. But until that day, his only plan is to have fun and enjoy life.

After a childhood of upset and uncertainty, Amy Hodge is going to make something out of herself. She has her future all planned out. She’s starting medical school and is going to be busy…far too busy for a relationship. But she does have time for a quick fling before she buckles down and concentrates on her studies.

Amy quickly realizes that playboy Trent is not all he seems to be. Never relinquishing control and sticking to her plans has done well for Amy, but no one has ever made her want to throw caution to the wind like this sexy firefighter.

Each book in the Under the Pier series is STANDALONE:

* Without Words

* Without Promises

 

 

EXCERPT

A sexy smile slid across his face as he looked at me, maybe picturing me with jet-black hair, and then his eyes dropped to my lips, causing a little jolt of energy to dance in my stomach. I didn’t do it on purpose, but I licked my bottom lip, and his eyes widened slightly.

What the hell was that? Now he thinks I’m trying to seduce him or something. God, I’m terrible at this. This. This is why I don’t date.

I stiffened, but Trent’s smile didn’t fade. He was still watching me, and his hand found mine where our thighs touched beneath the edge of the bar. His strong fingers wrapped around mine, and I felt my breath catch at the contact.

“Can I kiss you, Amy?” His voice was sandpaper.

Oh my God. Say yes.

I nodded, and he gently wrapped his other hand around the back of my neck and pulled me toward him, his mouth lingering just centimeters from mine. I closed the distance, curious to feel his mouth on mine, to taste those perfect laughing lips, to press myself into this easygoing playboy and absorb a bit of his light.

Trent’s lips met mine softly, and they stayed pressed gently there for a beat, and then he moved, slanting his mouth against mine, pressure building. We were facing each other fully now, and I let go of his hand and slid my palms up his arms, lingering on those swollen biceps. Trent rose to stand between my knees where I perched on the high stool, deepening the kiss. For what felt like long moments, I was lost in the push and pull. It was like being taken out by a wave, giving myself to the undertow and letting go, being sucked under into sweet, cool, dark water.

When he broke the kiss and pulled back to look at me, a wide smile spread across his face.

“Exactly what I expected,” he murmured. “Fucking perfect.”
