#Excerpt: WHEN A MARQUIS CHOOSES A BRIDE by Ella Quinn


Excerpt:

“Kimbal,” Dom called to his valet.

“Yes, my lord.”

“I shall be dining at White’s.”

“Yes, my lord.”

Dom scribbled a note to his friend Viscount Fotherby asking if he would like to join Dom for dinner. By the time he was dressed and had donned his hat, Fotherby’s answer affirming the invitation had arrived.

A short while later, just as a light sprinkle turned into a persistent rain, Dom handed his hat and cane to the footman at White’s and found his friend lounging in the room that held the club’s famous betting book. William Alvanley, another of Dom’s friends, was seated next to the window with another man staring intently at the rain.

He turned to Fotherby. “What are they doing?”

“Five thousand quid on which raindrop will reach the bottom of the sill first.”

Despite being close with many of the Prince Regent’s circle, Dom could not abide the excessive wagers his friends made. Alvanley would end up ruining himself and his estates at the rate he was going. “Are you ready to dine, or are you waiting the outcome?”

“Famished.” Fotherby tossed off his glass of wine. “Thought you weren’t coming to Town this year.”

“My plans changed.” Dom and Fotherby entered the dining room. “I have decided to take a wife.”

“Wife?” Fotherby choked. “Any idea who?”

“Not yet, but I have a list of qualifications. She must be well-bred, not given to fits of temper or strange starts, quiet, biddable, easy to look at—I must get an heir on her after all—know what is expected of a marchioness. And not prone to scandals. You know how my uncle hated them. I think that about covers it.”

“A paragon, in other words.”

Dom gave a cut nod. “Indeed. I could wed no one less.”


BLURB:
  
Thanks to their large extended family and unconventional courtship, the Worthingtons have seen their share of scandal and excitement. But nothing has prepared them for this...

The Dowager Lady Worthington isn’t quite sure what to make of country-girl Dorothea Stern. As the granddaughter of the Duke of Bristol, Dotty is schooled in the ways and means of the nobility. But her sharp wit and outspoken nature has everyone in a tizzy. Especially their cousin, Dominic, the Marquis of Merton.

Prematurely stuffy, Dom was raised by his cheerless uncle to be wary of a host of things, including innovation, waltzing, and most perilous of all: true love. Still, there’s something about Dotty, beyond her beauty, that Dom cannot resist. But the odds are against him if he intends to win her as his bride. Will he choose loyalty to his family—or risk everything for the one woman he believes is his perfect match…

EXCERPT:
Kaleidoscope 
“Do you remember Emma?” Lucas asked.
“As a matter of fact, I do. It’s a pleasure to see you again.” Abe held my hand. I remembered meeting him at Ray’s auto body shop, although I could have sworn he looked different. Shorter hair, maybe?
“Nice to see you,” I answered, returning his welcoming smile.
“Lucas, did you ever meet my brother, Henrik?” Abe asked.
“Call me Henry,” he said. He shook hands with Lucas first, then reached for my hand and kissed it gently. “Very lovely to meet you, Miss Emma.” He had a hint of an accent. Even though they both looked like they were mid-twenties, Henry acted much older.
I blushed. That kind of attention might be common wherever he came from, but not here in Westport.
“You’re adorable. I didn’t mean to embarrass you, darlin’.”
Drew returned with a tray full of shots before I had time to answer Henry. After introductions, Lucas gave a toast and everyone drank back the whiskey. I didn’t want one, but I drank it anyway. Actually, I choked on it. I didn’t think any of the guys noticed until Henry put his hand on the small of my back and asked if I was okay.
“Yes. Thank you.”
When I looked up at him, I realized he had a beautiful set of ice-gray eyes. The colors were piercing. Shades of white intermixed with hints of silver and turquoise. The longer I stared, the more the hues changed. Blues faded and whites darkened. Chills ran up my arms, but I couldn’t look away. I strained to keep my eyes open despite how heavy my eyelids felt.
A tingling swept over me until I was completely relaxed.
Like a kaleidoscope, Henry’s eye colors swirled. His pupils dilated.
I closed my eyes and saw a young woman with long, brown hair running through tall grass on a sunny afternoon. I felt the warmth on my skin, tilting my head back to catch the rays. I was tired.
Was I floating?
“Emma, can I get you something to drink?” Abe asked. His hand was on my arm. Stunned, I stared up at him. Did I just fall asleep?
I shook my head quickly. “I’m okay,” I mumbled. My eyes were dry and sore, and the strange sensation, the warm, comforting feeling I had, was gone.
Did I just imagine that?

#Excerpt: ENLIGHTENMENT by Liz Keel

  Excerpt:

I know the way I’m describing him might make you wonder why I’m not talking about him as something more than just a friend, but that’s the complicated part. You see, my feelings for him are purely platonic, but I don’t think he feels the same. The way Eli looks at me sometimes…the subtle hints…the way he grabs my hand and won’t let go, I think he wants something more and I’m not sure what to do about it. And however selfish this might sound, I need him in my life and can’t mess up our friendship, even to see if there could possibly be something more to our relationship. What if it all went wrong?

“Hey Thea,” Eli had whispered into my ear. “Mom says that when you’re discharged
you’re coming home with us, period. No arguing.”

I’d squeezed him back, gratefully burying my face in the crook of his neck, unable to communicate how much he and his family meant to me. At least they would be able to keep the loneliness at bay.

We sat like that for ages, me just breathing in his woody, musky smell, wondering how I was meant to function again. He twisted strands of my dark brown hair around his fingers and occasionally stroked his thumb along the side of my chin in a soothing manner. I could hear his mother and father in deep discussions with the police officers, and heard them say it was a miracle I was alive. Tell me about it. The only other person who had been around was Eli’s four-year-old sister Leela, who kept coming up with big, round, sad eyes, patting me on the leg whilst trying to get me to take Buggles, her much loved toy rabbit. She had known something was wrong and had tried her hardest to fix it in the only way she knew how.
   

BLURB:

After losing everything, all seventeen-year-old Thea wanted was to be a normal teenager. Instead, she was attacked by a mysterious creature she thought only existed in fairy tales. Now thrown into the unknown realm of Faey, Thea is forced to determine the difference between reality and fantasy, in a world ruled by a dark elite and a society wracked by intolerance and prejudice.

With the support of her new friends and a mysterious dark haired, blue-eyed guardian watching her every move, Thea will discover that when it comes to Faey, nothing is what it seems. Will her courage and desire to save this new world from darkness be enough? Or will Thea be the next victim to fall to the dark whispers of fate...

Interview with Krysten Lindsay Hager, COMPETING WITH THE STAR


Can you give us a brief overview of your latest book? Is it part of a series?
Competing with the Star is about a high school girl named Hadley who just starting dating this amazingly sweet guy named Nick—he’s thoughtful and caring and spends time with his grandpa in a nursing home. He’s her first love and her best friend, but then she finds out he used to have a crush on her friend, Simone, who happens to be a former TV star. That wouldn’t be so bad if Simone and Nick didn’t kiss after school. Both of them swear the other one made the first move and now Hadley has to determine who is telling the truth and who she can trust. The book can be read as a standalone, but there is also a previous book called Next Door to a Star where we see how Hadley moves to her current town and meets everyone. But you can read this book first if you’re more into romances.

Do you have a favorite character?
I love how the star, Simone Hendrickson, is the girl the others want to be like, but for as much as she has going for her, she is the most insecure one of the group. Hadley, the main character, is a favorite because of the way she is just finding herself and dealing with her insecurities and Pilar’s transformation from mean girl to loyal friend is amazing. But I have to say Nick Jenkins, Hadley’s boyfriend is probably my favorite because he is such a thoughtful guy whether he’s out with Hadley or going to the nursing home to spend time with his grandfather. He and Hadley spend time with his grandpa and it just shows what a sweet guy he is—the perfect boyfriend.

Have you ever had a minor character evolve into a major one? Did that change the direction of the novel at all?
When I was writing Competing with the Star, all of a sudden the mean girl character, Pilar Ito, showed a different side to her. You saw what was behind her defensive nature and why she came across the way she did. She went from a mean girl who went along with whatever the most popular girls told her to do to becoming Hadley’s friend who truly had her back. I loved the character transformation (Pilar is so different in Next Door with a Star) and I get a lot of messages from readers saying that she became they’re favorite character.

If you used a graphic designer/publisher’s designer, how involved were you during the creative process for your cover?
Ashley Byland from Redbird Designs was the artist. She sent me photos of the model that was on the cover for next Door to a Star and I got to pick the picture I liked the best. I wanted a beach scene and a pier in the backdrop to show that the book is set in a beach town (Grand Haven, Michigan.)

What is your writing process? Do you listen to music or do you like silence?
I listen to music before I start to write and certain songs really inspire some scenes. Clark Manson’s “Track 9” song was on repeat when I was writing. I don’t put music on as I write though. I almost always write late at night. I used to only write at my desk, but I recently moved and I’m having issues writing fiction in my office. I have no clue why, but I’ve been taking my laptop into the living room to get inspired. I’ve never written like that before, but it’s working for me!

Do you outline your story or just go where your muse takes you?
I tend to let the story and characters take me where they want to go. I did both an independent study and a creative writing class with author Thomas Foster who wrote, How to Read Literature Like a Professor, and he told me to let my characters tell me what they wanted to do instead of directing them. Great advice.

What kinds of marketing [twitter, facebook, blog, forums] are you involved with for promoting your book(s)?
Instagram is one of my favorite sites to share photos and interact with readers. https://www.instagram.com/krystenlindsay/
I also love blogging and putting stuff up about my books on my website. I think every writer needs to invest in a website and not just a blog: http://www.krystenlindsay.com/

Besides writing, do you have any other passions?
I love reading and learning new things—I’m really into watching documentaries and when I take an interest in someone like a writer, artist, or actor, I want to learn everything about them. Sometimes some of the little facts I pick up end up as story inspirations. Right now I’m also passionate about bringing awareness to Lewy Body Parkinson’s with dementia, which is the disease Nick’s grandfather has in the book. It’s based on my own experience having a family member with it and it’s not very well known so I want to help bring some light to it so other people won’t feel as alone as my family did.

Some fun facts about you, which do you prefer – dogs or cats? Chocolate or vanilla? Coffee or Tea? Talk or Text? Day or Night?
Definitely chocolate. I actually prefer to talk over texting because there’s always that weirdness over who stops texting first. Plus people seem to assume you’re available to answer a text 24/7, but with the phone you can just not pick up if you’re busy and no one gets upset.

What’s next for you?
I’m working on another YA book called, Dating the It Guy, as well as more YA projects, a new adult book, and I’m also working on the fourth book in my Landry’s True Colors Series.

#Excerpt: UNCHAINED MELODY by Cynthia Roberts


Unchained Melody
Cynthia Roberts
(Love Song Standards #1)
Publication date: January 28th 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Pamela Landers had it all, a senior partnership with a top law firm, expensive car, and a luxurious condo. What she desired most was a loving husband, children and a life filled with precious memories that would comfort her through her golden years.
Funny how fate has a way of steering you down that path where dreams really can come true. When Pamela encounters Gavin Templeton along her journey, she has some life-altering decisions to make that eventually lead her to happily ever after.

EXCERPT:
Her next move was brazen as she stood on tippy toes and entwined her arms about his neck. She drew his head down to touch her lips to his, and he did not resist.
His hands roamed up the small of her back, following the seductive outline of her waistline, leaving a blazoned trail of sensations in their quake.
Her insides quivered as his mouth warmly opened and his tongue worked its way insider her mouth.
He took her face between his hands and aroused her with long, ravishing kisses, bringing to life a passion that had been dormant for far too long.
The cold Winter night did not chill her wrapped in the warmth of his embrace. Even the silvery moon that glowed overhead cast a radiance over the newly fallen snow and the couple.
She hungered for more than just kisses and knew that he could carry her to heights of ecstasy she never experienced before. She knew by the way he kissed and worked his magic over her that he was a man expert in loving a woman.
Pamela forced herself to sever their tie. As much as she wanted him in her bed, she could not rush into anything she would be sorry for later.
“You sure know how to kiss a woman, Gavin Templeton,” she exhaled as she fumbled in her purse for her keys.
“The pleasure is all mine,” he rasped.
He lifted her chin with the tip of his finger and looked at her warmly.
“I’d love to see you again, that is, if you feel the same”
“I would love nothing more. I’m starting back to work on Monday and going to take it slow at first. My schedule needs to be reworked and I have to prepare for a major case I’m committed to.”
Pamela looked away shyly for a brief moment and gathered Gavin’s hands in her own, drawing them to her breast.
“Law has been my life 24/7. I would love a reason to change that. I’m a little mystified by the way fate has brought us together. I also don’t want to rush things between us. I hope you don’t mind.” Her eyes pleaded for his understanding. “There’s so much I don’t know about you, and you me.”
Gavin grasped her by her shoulders and kneaded them softly.
“I’m not a love them and leave them kind of guy. I’m attracted to you and not because you saved my life. I was drawn to you the moment I laid eyes on you. I’m fine with slow. I can be very patient when I have to.”
Pamela’s eyebrow quirked playfully.
“Well,” he interjected, joking. “To some degree.”
She laughed and he drew her into his arms. When she tilted her head back to gaze into his eyes, he captured her lips once again and she moaned softly with pleasure.
He broke the kiss and smiled knowingly at the sound she made.
“Slow, hah?”
She jabbed his rib playfully and replied, “You keep kissing me like that, and that could change.”

Please feel free to visit my website http://www.romanceauthorcynthiaroberts.com to read some wonderfully touching reviews and the direct links to them all.

My love of reading romance fiction goes back to those early years when I was raising a young family. It wasn't until much later in life I actually took up the pen to write and my first historical romance, Wind Warrior was born. I don't fit into one specific genre. When the ideas start to flow, lord only knows what category they'll fit into **wink wink **

I wish I could have gotten to this point in my career much sooner rather than later but, life simply got in the way far too many times. Because of those multiple detours, however, I have become a more passionate and expressive writer and can draw upon those painful moments in my past when I need to create the kind of raw human emotion I want my readership to feel.

It is my hope my readers walk away with not just an entertaining read but the importance in knowing, "Without imagination & dreams, we lose the excitement of wonderful possibilities."

#Review: FIRST POSITION by Melissa Brayden



  4 of 5 stars

Have you ever worked your entire life to achieve something only to have it taken away in an instant? Anastasia Mikhelson, a principal dancer with the prestigious City Ballet, is beyond fuming with newcomer, Natalie Federico, a free spirit,  is hired to share a lead role in a new ballet. Natalie had trained with the City Ballet school when she was younger, but quit when she realized that she was not suited to the rigid technique and form needed to become a prima ballerina. Now cast together, these two must learn to meld their styles--Ana's precise technique with Natatlie's passion--and dance like they've never danced before.

From the first day, sparks fly and not in a good way. Ana cannot believe that Natalie threw away a chance to train with City Ballet and yet, here she was being cast as a principal dancer. Life wasn't fair and Ana wants nothing to do with Natalie. I found both characters to be believable and could immerse myself in their world. Ms. Brayden does an excellent job of letting the reader in to each girl's head. While each girl begins to have an effect on each other, I could feel their pain, anguish and triumph. I've loved stories about the world of ballet and "First Position" is a wonderful peek inside this world. No spoilers here--read the book and find out what happens when opposites are thrown together and sparks fly. Recommended.

I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review.

Mr. Corporate

(Mister #3)
Publication date: August 17th 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Weston Conrad is the best headhunter in the business. That handsome smile goes a long way towards convincing most people to trust him with their future.
I’m not most people. I’m his direct competition. And it doesn’t hurt to be just the kind of woman he’s been looking for.
I’m gonna flash you these legs, Weston Conrad.
I’m gonna wear low-cut shirts and micro-mini skirts.
I’m gonna dazzle you with wit and conversation and kiss those lips like they’re exactly what I’ve been waiting for.
So don’t hate me when you figure out my secret.
You understand, right? You’re Mr. Corporate and this is just business.

square_tell_me_you_missed_this

EXCERPT
Weston takes off his tie and begins unbuttoning his shirt. My eyes open a little wider. I watch every move. The way his fingers flip each button loose. The way his tanned and muscular chest flashes me as the shirt comes apart. That stupid Corporate grin on his face.
I sigh with frustration just as he takes the whole thing off and starts going for his belt.
Will Weston Conrad strip naked to swim?
Oh, yeah. You bet your ass he will. I called him Naked Man back when we were together. He has a thing for it.
“Come on, Tori. Let’s swim. You don’t need a suit. I’ve seen your goods.”
“First of all,” I say, crossing my arms and maintaining eye contact as the pants come down, “I’m not ‘goods.’ Second of all, I’m not giving you the pleasure of seeing me naked after you’ve been such an asshole.”
“When was I an asshole?”
He’s kidding, right? “All the time.”
“I’m just truthful, Victoria. You just can’t handle the truth.”
“I’m tired of fighting—” But I stop talking. Because yeah, he still looks amazing in those black boxer briefs he’s partial to.
“Did you miss him?” West asks.
“Who?” I say, forcing myself to look up at his face.
“Naked Man?”
I almost laugh, but catch myself just in time. “Weston—” But before I can get anything else out, he’s crossing the floor, I’m backing up, my hands are up, warning him to stay away, and I bump into the couch and fall back.
He stops in front of me, his goddamned bulge staring me in the face.
At least he’s not hard.
Ooops. Spoke too soon.
“Weston, stop it.”
“Come on,” he says, extending his hand. “We’re going to the beach.”
“I’m not getting naked with you.”
“I don’t need you naked. Your fucking skirt is so short you could wade in up to your thighs.” He shakes his hand at me, urging. “Come on.”
I close my eyes so I can stop staring at the bulge, stop imagining his hard cock and all the ways I’ve been intimate with it in the past, and take his hand, letting him pull me to my feet. His arm slips around my back and he pulls me into his chest. God, I can feel his fucking dick against my hips.
“Victoria,” he says in my ear. “You’ve missed me,” he says, switching to the other one.
I wait for what comes next. It’s a thing he always did with me when I was on the verge of something. Panic, or sadness, or whatever comes with all the things we went through.
He would stand behind me, both hands squeezing my shoulders. His mouth would go to work on my earlobe, and my neck, and my mouth. Then his fingers would dip down into my bra to squeeze my breasts and pinch my nipples.
We’d always have sex after that. Always. It drove me crazy.
But before I can say anything—No, we’re not doing that, or, Back off, mister, I’m not yours—he backs away and he’s heading for the door, tugging me along.
I sigh, missing his attention so much in that unused moment.

Publication date: August 11th 2016
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Science Fiction

A-SIST
Anthropomorphic Sentient Individualized Servile uniT
Rogan is a robot. More specifically, he is an Asist – a personalized humanoid servant that provides protection, assistance, and companionship for a lonely young woman living on her own in the city.

Chloe is trying to get her big break, singing at bars and clubs all over the city at night while she pays the bills as a substitute teacher during the day. Ever since she activated him many months ago, Rogan has been her beautiful, dependable, obedient, dead-eyed security blanket.
One morning she is shocked when he disobeys a direct command in an attempt to please her and his dull artificial eyes flash a hint of something new. Is this the result of the adaptive Asist servility programming or is Rogan actually thinking? Can a robot think? Can a robot feel?

As Chloe struggles with these thoughts she is blindsided by the singular Niven Adams, a handsome, confident man with the voice of an angel who is everything she’s ever wanted in a boyfriend. He’s the perfect guy for her, except for one problem. Niven doesn’t approve of Asists and takes an immediate dislike to Rogan. As Niven charms his way deeper and deeper into Chloe’s heart, Rogan tries to convince her that he is more than a mass-produced disposable servant.

With Rogan doing everything in his power to prove that his thoughts and feelings are real and Niven trying to persuade her to abandon her robot and have a normal human relationship, Chloe is trapped between the two things that mean the most to her. Does she embrace her relationship with the blond newcomer, or face that her Asist’s feelings may be more than features of his programming?

What really makes a person a person?
Is it a ticking muscle inside their chest, or is it something more?
