Cover Reveal – LOST IN YOU by Heidi McLaughlin

LostInYou

Today we are revealing the brand new cover of the New Adult novel LOST IN YOU by New York Times Bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin. If you haven’t had a chance to read this one, you have to pick it up! The book will be re-released on Tuesday, September 23rd. A novella from the series will be coming out next month so be on the lookout for that!

 

BOOK SUMMARY:

Ryan Stone is a less than average teenager. He doesn’t have fancy clothes. He doesn’t carry around the latest smartphone and he definitely doesn’t have an MP3 player. Instead, he goes to school, does his chores and dreams of a new life away from Brookfield where he’s expected to follow in his blue collar family’s footsteps.

Hadley Carter is America’s Pop Princess. A successful recording artist living her dream with a sold-out tour and a handful of Grammy’s there isn’t much that she wants for, except love. But finding love on the road is near impossible when all she longs for are romantic dinners, a nighttime stroll on the beach and holding hands with someone who isn’t going to exploit her.

When a chance encounter introduces Ryan to Hadley, will he be like her adoring fans looking for a way in, or will it be Hadley who pursues Ryan even though it might cost her the only career she’s known.

Lost in You is a story about following your dreams, taking risks and getting lost in love.

AUTHOR’S NOTE:

Why I changed the cover

Since its release, I’ve heard over and over again how much people love the cover, but they’re not fans of “country western” novels. It’s hard to convince people that the novel was about something else. With this story being near and dear to my heart, I went back to Sarah Hansen (months ago) and we started brainstorming. It wasn’t until she found the absolute most fitting image did we start moving forward.
Now some of you know I’ve changed a cover before and when I did, I offered new content. This is the same case. I have Lost in Us coming out in October which is the epilogue to Lost in You.

I hope you love the new cover as much a I do and love the cover for Lost in Us just as much.

Much love,
Heidi

BOOK EXCERPT:

Excerpt from Lost in You

Her body visibly relaxes. I step closer, my body happy being this close to her. Her eyes close as she breathes in. Is she remembering what we had? Are her memories as vivid as mine? My hands cup her cheeks and I can’t resist the temptation to kiss her.
The moment our lips touch, I know. The fire is back. The electric energy coursing through our bodies making us one is stronger than anything I’ve ever felt. My tongue seeks out hers and is met with the same heat and emotion that I remember so well. I know without a doubt that she is the one who can ignite desire within me.
I slow things down, careful not to open old wounds. I kiss her once more, before resting my forehead against hers.
“I’m sorry,” I whisper. I should’ve asked if she had a boyfriend or a husband before I did that. For all I know, she’s taken and I just assaulted her. “I just had to know,” I say, pulling away from her.
“Know what?” she asks.
I don’t hesitate this time. I’m not taking any chances. “If you’re the one.”
A smile breaks out across her freshly kissed lips and I fight every urge to kiss her again. But I hold back. If someone told me that I was going to end up kissing Hadley Carter after running into her, I would’ve laughed.
With utter reluctance, I let go of her. The connection is lost and I hate the feeling that I’ve had to suppress for so long. It’s amazing what one person can do to you with just a simple touch. Hadley is my drug and for the past four years I’ve been jonesing for just the smallest taste.
“Do you want to come in?” she points to the apartment behind her. “We can talk. I think we should talk. I have so much I need to tell you.”
I look at the doorman who’s watching me like a well-paid hawk. The question still plagues my thoughts. “Are you married?”
“No.”
“Boyfriend?”
“No, I’m single.”
Those are the answers that I was looking for. “Okay,” I say.
“Okay.” She turns and I follow her up the stairs. The doorman opens the door for us and she nods as we pass them. We stand side by side, waiting for the elevator. When we step inside, she presses the button for her floor and we ride in silence.

Great Getaway with IGNITED by J. Kenner

ABOUT IGNITED

 

He promised to take me as far as I could go—and I wanted to go to the edge.
 
My whole life has been a cover, a con, a lie. I was born into the grift, raised on the thrill of playing someone I’m not. As a rule, I never let anyone get too close—until Cole August makes it impossible for me to stay away.

Cole is tough, sexy, and intensely loyal, yet his secrets are dark and his scars run deep. Not many women can handle his past, or the truth behind his fierce demands. But something about him beckons me—and our desire is a game I must play.

I know he’s dangerous, that even his touch is trouble, but what is passion without a little risk?

MY REVIEW 

We get a fast paced, hot and sexy read with Ignited by J Kenner.  From the start to the end, I was riveted to Cole and Kat’s story.

Kat is a grifter that is looking to settle down with the purchase of her first home.  She’s decided that she needs to take action on the what she feels for Cole.  Cole is a successful businessman and artist with a dark past.  He tries to protect Kat from himself but cannot deny their mutual attraction.

The chemistry leaps off the pages and kept me turning the pages.  I found myself wanting to know where their story would take us next.  I thoroughly enjoyed Ignited, Cole and Kat’s story hit the mark as a sexy, hot read with twists that kept the action moving.  And from an art gallery opening in Chicago, a flight to California and the promise of Europe, Ignited was a great getaway!

RELEASE DATE: NOVEMBER 11, 2014

“She sat beside me on
the bus – and she changed my whole life.”

Successful, wealthy
and absurdly handsome –
Spanish ex-football
player Mateo Casalles seemed like he had it all. A high-society wife, an
adorable little girl, and flashy apartments in Madrid and Barcelona only
sweetened the deal. But there was more to Mateo than met the eye – a life of
uncertainty and regret that colored his black and white world.
That was until Vera
Miles came into his life like a shooting star. Tattooed, wild and young, Vera
seemed like Mateo’s polar opposite at first. But you can’t choose who you fall
in love with and the two lost
souls did everything they could to be together, all while suffering the grave
consequences.
Now with Mateo
divorced and living in Madrid with Ver
a, there is a whole new set of challenges
and setbacks facing the couple and rocking the foundation of their star-crossed
relationship.
Unfortunately for
them, the brighter the star, the faster they burn.

EXCERPT

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”

 

I turn in my chair and give Vera a curious look. Yet another English saying that I don’t know. “I’m afraid I don’t understand.”

 

She gives me a soft but tired smile and sits down on the arm rest. I immediately wrap my arm around her waist and pull her down into my lap, where she comes to a rest with a giggle, her hair obscuring the impish smile on her face. No matter where she is, I can never stop touching her and now more than ever I need her to relax, to feel safe, to know I’m going to get us out of this.

 

“Explain,” I demand. “Or I will punish you with kisses.”

 

She raises her brow. “Followed by punishment by penis?”

 

I shrug. “That can be arranged. Now, tell me my Estrella.”

 

She sighs and buries her lips into my neck. I can’t help the small moan that escapes from me, nor my hardness building beneath her plump, round ass. I close my eyes and fight the urge to pick her up and take her to the bedroom, the only other way I know how to make her feel safe and sated, the only way I know how to escape.

 

“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” she says against my throat, “is a saying. I don’t know where it’s from but it means, well, nothing is scarier than a pissed off bitch.” She pauses, sucking in her breath and I know she fears she’s said the wrong thing. “Sorry,” she quickly adds and I feel her body tense up beneath my fingers. “I didn’t mean that Isabel is a bitch.”

 

She is still so skittish over her words, the way she blurts things out, but it’s one of the reasons why I love her. I cup the back of her head with my hand and let the softness of her hair sink over me. “I know you didn’t,” I assure her. “And, well, she is being a bitch.”

 

“Can you blame her though?” she asks, her voice rising a pitch and when she pulls away from me, her eyes are wet. It breaks my heart. I’m getting tired of my heart breaking and I know that this isn’t going to change anytime soon. Every day there is another weight on us, another crack appears.

 

“No,” I tell her honestly. “I cannot blame her.”

 

A silence lapses over us, heavy like a wool cloak. It does this sometimes. What we’ve done, it coats us.

 

Finally she clears her throat. “She’s going to hurt for a long time,” she says. “She’s going to be angry. This isn’t going away. I thought everything was behind us now, that she’d move on. You’ve been divorced for a year, if she’s still this mad a year out…”

 

“She is mad because I am going back to Atletico,” I tell her. “She is mad because of the paparazzi, the way they are hounding us again. She is mad because she feels she is being made to look like a fool. If I had just stayed with my head down, she wouldn’t be doing this.”

 

“But you can’t live your life in fear, Mateo,” she tells me.

 

I smile at her and brush her sunset hair from her face. “And neither can you.”

 

She settles back against my body, sinks, conforms, melds. She is second skin. She is a part of myself I can’t bear to separate from. I pray I never have to. I pray we can survive whatever is coming our way.

 

And I can feel it coming, that tension, that storm rolling in the weeks and days.

 

I pick her up in my arms and for all her pillowy curves, she weighs nothing more than a feather. I take her down the hall to the bedroom, throw her on the bed. She glows in the afternoon sun that streams in through our window and it isn’t long before we are both naked and I am climbing over her, pinning her arms above her head and drinking in her body like the most beautiful, decadent wine.

 

I will devour her until all of this is gone.

 

I will consume her until we are all that’s left.

 

I push inside her and let my hunger take over.

 

 

 

He’s thirty-eight. I’m
twenty-three.
He speaks Spanish.
I speak English.
He lives in Spain.
I live in Canada.
He dresses in
thousand-dollar suits. I’m covered in tattoos.
He’s married and
has a five-year old daughter.

I’m single and
can’t commit to anyone or anything.

Until now. Because
when they say you can’t choose who you fall in love with, boy ain’t that the
f*#king truth.

***

To a restless
dreamer like Vera Miles, it sounded like the experience of a lifetime. Instead
of spending her summer interning for her astronomy major, she would fly to
Spain where she’d spend a few weeks teaching conversational English to
businessmen and women, all while enjoying free room and board at an isolated
resort. But while Vera expected to get a tan, meet new people and stuff herself
with wine and paella, she never expected to fall in love.

Mateo Casalles is
unlike anyone Vera has ever known, let alone anyone she’s usually attracted to.
While Vera is a pierced and tatted free spirit with a love for music and
freedom, Mateo is a successful businessman from Madrid, all sharp suits and
cocky Latino charm. Yet, as the weeks go on, the two grow increasingly close
and their relationship changes from purely platonic to something…more.

Something that
makes Vera feel alive for the first time.

Something that can
never, ever be.

Or so she thinks

Cover Reveal – FRACTURED LINES by Jen McLaughlin

FL Amazon

Today we are revealing the cover for FRACTURED LINES by Jen McLaughlin. This is the highly-anticipated adult standalone novel that is part of the New York Times Bestselling OUT OF LINE series. The book will be released on Tuesday, October 14th.

BOOK BLURB:

The lines we once crossed so easily have widened and torn us apart…

Once upon a time I thought Finn and I would live happily ever after, but real life doesn’t always have a happy ending. He’s testing my trust, and I’m losing faith in the man I thought I’d spend the rest of my life with, and there’s nothing I do can stop it. He’s the one I trusted to keep me safe, but now he’s the source of my greatest pain…

Forgiveness is fragile, and some fractures never fully heal…

One mistake—a slip in a moment of weakness—might cost me everything I’ve worked so hard for. The thing about trust is that it’s a lot easier to lose than it is to build. Just as I’m about to give up and surrender to the demons from my past, an unexpected threat reminds me what I’m best at: protecting the woman I love. Whether or not she wants me, I will fight for Carrie and our daughter, and I will keep them safe—no matter the cost.

Cover Reveal – PARTNERS by Lilliana Anderson

We have a lovely cover reveal today for Partners by Lilliana Anderson. I’m so excited for this prequel to the FIRES & LIES series. So without further ado:

 

Title: Partners

Author: Lilliana Anderson

Release Day: October 13th

About Partners:

Rules are made to be broken…

 

All her life, Chloe Donovan played by the rules. She was good. She was daddy’s perfect little girl. That was, until those rules failed her and her family, causing them to lose everything they had worked for.

 

With her father lying in hospital unconscious, and her mother caught in the depths of depression, it’s up to Chloe to find out the truth and put the real criminals behind bars.

 

But to do that, she needs help.

 

Aiden Price was once the head of security at the decimated Donovan Corporation. He protected Chloe, her family, and their clients, as millions of dollars changed hands on a daily basis. Now, with the company in ruins, he has branched out on his own and created the successful, Price Security.

 

Aiden is the only person her father trusted, which makes him the only person Chloe can trust.

 

The problem is, he doesn’t trust Chloe. A previous moment of weakness and passion saw Chloe enter and leave his life like a ghost in the night. Aiden isn’t the kind of man a girl walks out on. He says when it’s over. Not the other way around.

 

On top of that, he doesn’t have any lost love for Chloe’s father. As far as he’s concerned, it was her father who sold the company out which allowed for the aggressive takeover to take place. That act saw his and thousands of other jobs lost. Aiden is a man of honor, and he can’t forgive an action that he saw as guided by pure greed.

 

It’s up to Chloe to convince Aiden that everything he thinks he knows is a lie. But Aiden doesn’t do anything for free. Partnering up is going to cost Chloe dearly. She just wasn’t expecting to have to pay with her heart…

 

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Not one to take a hint are you?” he grumbles as he heads up the path and climbs the steps.

I push off the railing and stand to meet him by his front door. “It’s important.”

“So you keep saying.” He sounds tired, his voice much softer than it had been earlier and he inserts his key, pushing the front door open.

As he walks past me, I smell the faint scent of another woman’s perfume and my mouth speaks before my brain connects. “Have you been with someone?”

Stepping inside his home, he pauses and blocks the door. “That is absolutely none of your business,” he states.

“Does this girl know what you were in your office dry humping me before her? Does she know I’m the one that got you fired up?” I’m attacking him and it’s stupid and unwarranted. Essentially, I have no right to be behaving this way. But I can’t seem to stop myself from feeling a jealous rage at the thought of him with another woman.

His eyes narrow for a moment and within a blink of the eye his arms shoot out and he grabs me, hauling me through the door and slamming me against the wall. The movement surprises me and I gasp and follow my instinct to fight him. He flattens his body against mine, pinning me so I can’t move and he grabs my wrists pressing them together over my head.

I wriggle beneath him, feeling way out of my depth. I talk tough, but in this moment, I feel anything but. “Let me go, Aiden,” I demand through clenched teeth.

“Why? Isn’t this what you came here for?” He readjusts his grip so he can hold both of my wrists in one hand then trails his other one down my arm. “It’s why you’re here acting like a jealous girlfriend, right?” His hand pauses at my throat and wraps around it uncomfortably as he leans into me, brushing his rough stubble across the skin of my cheeks. “Do you want me to fuck you, Chloe?” He pushes his groin against me and I can feel his erection dig into me. I wince. “No? Then what?” His breath is hot and his fingers tighten around my throat as his mouth moves toward my ear and he growls, “What the fuck do you want from me?”

Tears burn in my eyes and I them shut, suddenly feeling as though I’ve pushed him too far. I should have told Leah to go fuck himself. I should have stayed home and thought of another way to get Aiden to listen.

Things are different now. So much has happened in the last three years. So much has changed in each of our lives. We’re different people. Capable of different things. When you back a person into a corner, you can’t always be sure how they’ll react…

I twist my head away from him as my emotions hit me and I let out a strained sob. I didn’t want to cry. I wanted to stay in control but he’s scaring me. At the sound of my cry, his grip lessens, it’s if he suddenly realises what he’s doing and he slowly releases me.

“Shit,” he hisses, taking a step back to give me some space to move. I don’t waste my time, the moment my hands are free, I swing my body, bringing my arm around and slap him loudly across the face.

“Fuck you, Aiden! Fuck you!” I scream, my body shaking with fear, desire and anger from his intimidation tactic.

His cheek becomes immediately inflamed and I watch the red bloom across his skin, as I glare up at him, angry that we’re even in this situation. Things used to be so different between us…

“I guess I deserved that,” he admits.
