Excerpt:

“I wasn’t telling you what to do, I’m the Sheriff of this county. I was telling you to back off so I could do my job, which incidentally, is keeping the residents, meaning you, safe. I’d tell anyone who was acting recklessly and putting his or her safety at risk to stop. You’re using that as an excuse to end things that haven’t even begun. I’m telling you right now, I’m not backing off; you intrigue the hell out of me with your smart mouth and sweetness, all at the same time. I haven’t met a woman in 20 years that’s piqued my interest like you have, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let you run from me because you’re stubborn.” That shut her up, and I heard her breathing hard on the other end of the phone, so I waited for her to reply, but got dead air.
“Jenn? –Swear to Christ you’re the most stubborn woman I’ve ever—”
“You scare me,” she whispered.
“Yeah? Well join the club, cause you sure as shit scare the fuck out of me.”

Author Bio:

C.P. Smith is a mother of 5 and has a vivid imagination. Married 26 years and a stay at home Mom, she spent most of the time she wasn’t hauling kids places, reading. Ms.Smith loves a good HEA, but not finding enough stories with older couples in them, and knowing from experience that love and passion doesn’t end at forty, she set out to write her own stories for the more mature reader. Her hope is all the twenty-something’s out there will understand, that just cause you’re older and wiser, it doesn’t mean you stop having dreams about love and passion.

Somebody’s Angel by Kallypso Masters

1456971_534045413353098_1176454513_n

Blurb:

When Marc d’Alessio first rescued the curvaceous and spirited Italian Angelina Giardano at the Masters at Arms Club, he never expected her to turn his safe controlled life upside down and pull at his long-broken heartstrings. Months later the intense fire of their attraction still rages but something holds him back from committing to her completely. Worse, secrets and memories from his past join forces to further complicate his relationships with family, friends, and his beautiful Angel.
Angelina cannot give all of herself to someone who hides himself from her. She loves Marc, the BDSM world he brought her into, and the way their bodies respond to one another but she needs more. Though she destroyed the wolf mask he once wore, only he can remove the mask he dons daily to hide his emotions. In a desperate attempt to break through his defenses and reclaim her connection to the man she loves, she attempts a full frontal assault that sends him into a fast retreat, leaving her nobody’s angel once again.
Marc finds that running to the mountains no longer gives him solace but instead leaves him empty and alone. Angelina is the one woman worth the risk of opening his heart. Will he risk everything to become the man she deserves and the man he wants to be?

This or That with Kallypso Masters

More fast, fun facts about Kally!

 Chocolate or Vanilla?  Vanilla. I know, bet I surprised you! I’m not a huge fan of chocolate, although it there’s caramel with it, that’s different.

Zoo or Museum?  Museum (unless my 15-month-old grandson is with me, then the zoo)

Makeup or Au Naturale?  Au Naturale (My author friend Robyn Peterman has tried to teach me to use makeup more—even showing me how and plucking the hell out of my eyebrows!–but more often than not, I’m not wearing makeup.)

Call or Text? Text. I really don’t like talking on the phone. So a text or e-mail usually comes before a phone call. And my phone usually has the ringer off.

Facebook or Twitter?  Facebook (I write too long for Twitter)

Dancer or Wallflower?  Wallflower (I’m a klutz and totally uncoordinated)

Heels or Boots?  Boots (with a short heel)

Mexican or Italian Food? Italian because I love trying so many different dishes. I’m less adventurous with Mexican (usually just ordering a cheese enchilada and Spanish rice. But a reader invited me to her home in San Jose in May and treated me to homemade Carne Asada, so I’ve started ordering that more often when I go out to a Mexican restaurant.

Morning or Night?  Night. I used to be a morning person, but mornings start later now that I’m staying up until (at least) 2 a.m. most nights.

Cake or Ice cream?  They come separate? Um, sorry. No can separate them.

Trains or Planes?  Trains! OMGosh, hubby and I just took the most amazing train trip from Chicago to Emeryville, Calif., in late August. (We also took a train from Cincinnati to Chicago, but that was less-than-amazing. Lol) But the sleeper bedroom on the California Zephyr was awesome. I loved the whole experience of it! Slower pace, fewer hassles, and gorgeous scenery. Next best thing to a road trip, but trains can take you places roads can’t, which is awesome.

Planner or Pantser?  Pantser all the way! My Masters just laugh and do the opposite of anything I ever plan for them, so I’ve learned not to bother. I just sit and wait for them to share their stories. Sometimes, as with Marc D’Alessio, it takes a while!

Fall Into Me by K.M. Scott

Synopsis:

The second book in the Heart of Stone series continues the sensual and emotional story of Tristan and Nina that began in Crash Into Me…

Wealthier and more powerful than most men his age, Tristan Stone merely has to give voice to his desires and whatever he wants is his. Money has given him the ability to say nothing and no one is beyond his reach.

Except for Nina. Stripped of her memory after an accident, she doesn’t remember the man who loves her. Now he must find a way to show her why she fell in love with him, but the past is always just a step behind, threatening to take her away forever.

Unsure of everything about the past four years, Nina believes Tristan loves her. But will the secrets he holds tear them apart just when she needs him most?

Excerpt:

I didn’t want to hold back anymore. I wanted her to be mine again, body and soul. Cradling the back of her head, I drew her mouth toward mine and kissed her with all the desire I’d kept bottled up for all those weeks. Her lips were soft against mine but as eager and passionate as I slid my tongue into her mouth to find hers. When she sighed into my mouth, I couldn’t wait anymore.
My hands clawed at the zipper down the back of her dress, but it got stuck an inch from the top. Aching to be inside her, I tore the two halves of the dress apart, ruining the zipper and the dress.
“Tristan, my dress!” she cried as I pulled it from her body.
“I don’t care. I’ll buy you ten dresses just like it,” I panted as I unhooked her bra and slid the first strap over her shoulder. “Same thing with the bra. And if these panties don’t come off easy, I’m going to rip through them too.”
Nina’s fingers tore through my shirt buttons until it hung open, and I quickly shrugged out of it. She was as desperate as I was to be out of those damn clothes. In seconds, she had my belt off and my pants and boxer briefs off my legs, and I had her pushed up against the wall.
As I lifted her off the ground to wrap her legs around my waist, I pressed my forehead to hers and rasped, “I hope you weren’t expecting something slow and gentle. I can give you that, but tonight I don’t want to wait. I need to be inside you, Nina.”
Moaning, she pulled me close, but just then I remembered her sore ribs. Pulling back, I said, “I forgot about what the doctor said. Maybe we should go easy this time.”
She dug her heels into my lower back and pulled my mouth to hers in a deep kiss. Her voice husky, she groaned, “Please, Tristan. I’m not a china doll. I’ll tell you if something hurts.”
I gently slid just the head of my cock into her, still worried I might hurt her if I didn’t take it slow. My body was in agony wanting to bury myself inside her, but I didn’t want to risk bruising those already sore ribs. I could give her gentle, even if every part of me wanted much more.
Nina pushed her palms against my chest and held me away from her. Worried I’d already screwed this up, I opened my mouth to apologize but she touched her finger to my lips to stop me. “Don’t make me wait. I don’t want gentle now. I want you…all of you.”
Her fingers pressed into the back of my neck as I plunged balls deep into her wet and willing cunt. Nothing in the entire world ever felt better than that moment when our bodies joined together as one again. Her body was hot and enveloped me, taking my body to places I thought only existed in my imagination.

Back to Reality by Danielle Allen Blog Tour

BacktoRealityOfficialCover

Synopsis

Her past: Emanuel Mills was her first love. The guitar playing, adventure seeking, IT whiz was everything she ever wanted.

Her present: Tyree Barker was her last love. The cultured, educated, successful entrepreneur was everything she needed.

But when Sahara Lee’s past and present collided, a series of events occurred that changed her life forever, leaving her future up in the air.

As a college freshman, a tragic accident changed the course of Sahara’s life. Ten years later, just when she started putting her life back together, Sahara’s world was rocked again due to a similar accident.

Heartbroken and guilt ridden, Sahara fell into old, familiar habits before quickly realizing that she wasn’t the same Sahara Lee anymore. Unable to live a lonely, loveless, isolated life anymore, Sahara decided that the way she coped before wasn’t going to work this time around.

Time didn’t heal her wounds, but forgiveness might.

Danielle Allen

Author Bio:

I am a married event planner and life coach. My awesome friends and family and my amazing husband make my life sweet. I love to have fun and enjoy the life I’ve been blessed with. I love shopping and football with equal fervor. I’m an amateur movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for fun). I love to read and I enjoy sharing my love of books with anyone who will listen. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most mediums of creative, artistic expression.

With degrees in psychology, human services, and marriage and family counseling, I have a unique perspective on life, love and the pursuit of happiness. As an author, I combine an active imagination and life experiences to create stories that are easily relatable and intentionally intriguing. I want to offer you a peek into someone else’s life and for you to get lost in their story, their trials, their triumphs. My ultimate goal is to create a character or a story that stays with you long after you’ve put the book down.

So in a nutshell: I plan. I teach. I read. I write. I watch. I critique. I shop. I play. I love.

To know me is to love me. XOXO

Biggest Moment with Sahara: One of my biggest moments with Sahara was at James and Lidia’s wedding back in 2003 is one of many, many favorite moments. Emily got pulled onto the dance floor, leaving just Sahara and I sitting together at our table.  She asked me if I wanted to dance and my heart started pounding. Now I’d known the girl since she was born. She always flirted with me. She always made it known that she was into me. And I always played it cool. But that night, I couldn’t keep it together. It was as if my feelings for her refused to be locked down anymore. When we danced and she gazed up at me, I had to restrain myself from kissing her. I almost told her I loved her for the very first time after she performed a ‘Crazy In Love’ routine for me.  I almost did a lot of things that night. But I lost my nerve. I told myself that I had time to figure it out, to make it perfect. Especially since there were so many people around including a random guy who had followed her around the whole night after she danced with him once. So I decided to wait. And two weeks later, I was in a coma. I never got a chance to tell her anything. And when I woke up from the coma, she was gone. That’s when I realized life was short. And I needed to man-up.

The Moment You Fell For Sahara: To tell you the truth, each day of my life, from childhood to adulthood, I have fallen a little more in love with Sahara. But even before I was ready to admit it at James and Lidia’s wedding, we ran into each other at my parent’s house, my childhood home, in the hallway. It was Thanksgiving Break 2002 and she was about to go somewhere and I felt it. Everything I’d felt up to that point clicked into place and I knew that somewhere along the lines, I’d fallen for my little sister’s best friend.
