Welcome Anne. I’m so happy to have you today. Tell us about your book.

Angel’s Collar

Book One of the Love Strictly Tested series

I have it all…until he shows me more.

I didn’t intentionally spill wine all over the most beautiful guy in the room, and one look at those icy-blue eyes brings on a major lapse in coherent speech. Jordan Caldera tells me his secret and wants me to join him. This is where my journey into submission begins.

So much about BDSM freaks me out, but at the same time, I can’t help but be intrigued. When I imagine Jordan doing those things to me, I can’t resist the adventure. Mind-blowing sex aside, my life is changing at an alarming rate and getting very complicated. Between balancing my career and my best friend’s concerns, the secrets I’m keeping are killing me.

What am I willing to risk for the new lifestyle I’ve embraced…and the man I love?

 

Excerpt:

“Oh my gosh,” I squealed. My hand barely coveredperf5.000x8.000.indd

the gaping hole my mouth formed. “I am so sorry.” The

massive red wine stain all over the front of a pure white

shirt on a rock hard chest glared like a traffic light. As

my gaze traveled up and up, his face, in addition to

being a visual perfection, appeared rather amused.

Well, at least that’s what I deducted, while devouring

those ice blue eyes which complemented the thick rich

brown hair which was a little too long for a guy in a

fancy suit. Chocolate lava cake at its best. All I wanted

to do was to swirl whipped cream all over this sinful

dessert of a man.

“Here, let me get some club soda and towels.” I

wanted to make a quick retreat to find a way to repair

the damage to his shirt as well as my embarrassment.

“No. Don’t worry. It’s all right.” He regarded the

stain and then me. “You could have just introduced

yourself instead of ruining my shirt.”

“Well. I do like to make an impression.” His

genuine smile made me relax and too warm all over.

“Really, though, let me pay for the cleaning.”

“It’s just a shirt.” He crossed his arms over his

chest. “I’m still waiting.”

“Forrrr?” I was confused, befuddled, and

hopelessly embarrassed.

“An introduction.”

Wow. He was serious about knowing who I was.

“I’m Emma Samuelson.” I couldn’t decide whether to

extend my hand, kneel at his expensive Italian shoes, or

just bat my eyes to flirt.

I’m a terrible flirt, and by terrible I mean, I do it

often, but not all that well, and kneeling would draw

attention. So, I extended my sweaty hand.

Interview with Cadence Vonn

Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Cadence Vonn. Thanks for stopping by today.

My First question is are you in control of your characters or do they control you?

My characters talk to me. I might be driving the car, but they’re my GPS.

What drew you to the characters in this story?

I love old movies where the heroine is incognito. So I created Tess. She has a mixture of my grandmother’s spunk and my Italian heritage. With Max, nothing is sexier than a stoic man who turns out to be sex as Hell.

And now for my favorite question. What is your favorite punctuation mark and why? The exclamation point! My characters get excited and are vocal when they’re focused on pleasure. It adds that necessary punch at the end.

You’re book, Play A Game With Me, is featured in Passionate Cravings, an eroticPassionate Cravings sampler. Tell us a little about it.

Maximilian Westfield has resurrected his family’s company under the controlling eye of the major shareholder–his mother. To keep the company, he must marry the woman she chooses, no matter how inane or spineless. He is resigned to go through with the arranged marriage until he meets a feisty costume designer who will never meet his mother’s standards. A stolen kiss spurs his lustful cravings. Once he tastes the spirited beauty’s charms, he knows he has to find a way to keep her and his company. No other woman will do.

The daughter of a powerful British businessman, Teresa Medici Staffordshire leads her life as Tess Medici to avoid men out to please her father. Then she meets Maximilian, a sexy uptight CEO. From the moment he unleashes his expert fingers on her skin, she’s hooked. His erotic games make her body hum with pleasure. Determined to lure Max out to play, every encounter becomes a game of enticement. But his commitment to his family business and his mother’s determination to marry him off makes it impossible to take the relationship public, and Tess refuses to be his guilty little secret

Choices become consequences, their future is on the line, and Max and Tess are running out of time.

Could you share an excerpt from Play A Game With Me?

I’d love to.

Tess opened the door on the first knock.

Max stood transfixed. His fingers fisted together and he scanned her body before he said, perf5.000x8.000.indd“May I come in?”

She stepped out of the way, sweeping her arm in a welcoming gesture.

“What brings you here, Maximilian?”

“I found myself outside hoping the need to see you would pass. I wanted to convince myself that last night was a fluke, but just now when I saw you standing here all thought of not being with you flew out the window. Damn, I want you.” He pulled her into his arms. His hands gripped her bottom, crushing her against him as he claimed her mouth in a hard kiss.

Tess buried her fingers in the waves of hair near the nape of his neck. She held his head so she could deepen the kiss he’d already started. His breath tasted of scotch, and she wondered how many glasses he drank trying to forget her.

Excerpt :

After scolding herself, she got back to work.

She had to find the evidence quickly before Darius realized what she was up to.

Near the end of her shift, she grabbed a tray, a bottle of single-malt whiskey, a glass, and headed

toward the boss’s office. She knocked on the door. No one answered, so she slipped in.

Setting the tray on the coffee table, she scanned the room and sat down at the desk. She didn’t know the computer password, so she opened the drawer on the right.

At the sound of the soft scraping of the door on the lush carpet, she froze.

Darius filled the doorway. “What are you doing here?”

Quietly, she closed the drawer. “I was told to bring the boss a bottle of scotch.”

Darius nodded at the bottle on the tray. “I see.”

“You do a lot of that.”

“What are you doing behind the desk?” His low, measured voice sent shivers through her.

“Nothing.” She shrugged. When he did not respond, she said, “The truth is, I need to get

another computer. I figured the boss would have the top of the line with all the bells and whistles.” She forced a smile. “Just checking it out.” She got up and edged around the desk, hoping to get to the door before Darius pressed the control in his pocket

to call his men.

He blocked her. His rock-solid frame resembled a wall yet excited her. Taking a calming

breath, she tried to walk around him.

Thankful Authors Blog

Thankful authors header -17

In November we think of Thanksgiving, turkey, dressing, gravy and pie. We tend to list all the things we are thankful for at that moment, but why not be thankful all year long?

I have a wonderful husband, and great kids who married people I’m proud to have in the family. Being Canadian we celebrated thanksgiving last month, but each day I get a text or a call from the kids, I’m thankful that we have such a close relationship.

I’m thankful for my extended family. We don’t see one another as often as I’d like, but they are such an important part of my life, they seem close even though we are separated by miles.

I’m thankful for my friends who are like family. They cheer on my successes, hug away my fears and defeat my doubts.

I challenge each of you to thank someone each and every day for the next year. Lets make the next year our most thankful yet!

My book Tartan Temptation will be released soon in audio.tartantemptation_w10679_300

Blurb: Financial planner Cora Siegfried has returned to her hometown to settle her late father’s estate. Get in, get out, that’s the plan. When she’s almost run over by a kilt-wearing hottie on a motorcycle, all her well-laid plans go up in smoke, and all she can think about is getting well laid by her childhood crush. But after what she hoped would be a one-night stand, leaving him might not be as easy. Talk about a tartan temptation.

With his throne on the line, Brodie Murdock needs to secure his kingdom by taking a bride. When the only woman he’s ever wanted steps right into his path, he knows the legends are true. She is his destiny. The feisty female isn’t hard to seduce into his bed for the night, but she’s proving difficult to convince they are meant for forever. And then there’s the secret that could destroy any chance of their future–a secret he’s not ready to confess. Not until his stubborn soul mate admits she needs him for more than sex.

Excerpt:

She smoothed along the tight fabric covering her thighs. “I’m wearing a skirt.”

He pointed to his kilt. “So am I.”

The corners of her mouth turned up, and his heart warmed. “It’s simple. Just take your skirt here—” He grabbed the front hem of his kilt. “—and hike your leg over the seat.”

Mischief shone in her eyes as she placed her hand where he showed her on her pencil skirt, “You mean like this?” She couldn’t raise her leg very far off the ground. “Mine’s too tight.”

He had already noticed how it hugged her hips. “Then hike up your skirt, lass, and hop on your chariot.”

Before she could reply, a crack of thunder shook the ground and lightening flashed across the sky.

Brodie sensed not only the approaching storm but the storm of emotions raging inside Cora. He couldn’t leave her alone. “Get on the bike. We have to get out of here.” He climbed on the motorcycle, tucking the kilt under him, and extended his hand. “Come.”

She gazed at him for a second, then pulled the strap of her purse over her head, hiked-up her proper, business-length skirt to the point of indecency, and swung her leg over the seat behind him.

He shouldn’t be encouraging her to spend time with him. It was crazy to tempt the gods, but he couldn’t help himself. She was a damsel in distress, and he had to rescue the woman connected to his heartblood.

When Cora wrapped her hands around him, his chest tightened. He struggled to keep his wits about him as he gazed up at the clouds. They had to get to safety.

Gunning the throttle of the motorcycle, they raced down the street to their fate.

A.K. Smith #2

Blurb: Dive into A Deep Thing
A Deep Thing by A.K. Smith is a high concept thriller–think The Da Vinci Code of the deep–that grabs you from the beginning and doesn’t let go. A roller coaster ride of romance, suspense, mystery and intrigue,  this page-turner surprises at every turn and offers a stunning ending you’ll never suspect.  M. Baron- Author of Stumble Stones: A novel

What was her husband hiding in the jungles of Mexico?  A.K. Smith

Rocked by her husband’s tragic death, Kendall Jackson strives to put her life back together. But Ryder, her nineteen-year-old stepson, is bitter and wants nothing to do with her. And she can’t keep the grief at bay. Sometimes, it’s so strong, she wonders if life is worth living. A call from a cave diver in Mexico gives her hope of mending the relationship with her stepson. Before his death, her husband arranged a diving expedition as a birthday gift for his son. Kendall persuades Ryder to honor his father’s last wish.

From the campus of Western Maryland College to the woods of Camp David and the caves of the Yucatán, Kendall and Ryder take a journey to discover what her husband worked so hard to hide, and to protect his treasured secrets from falling into the wrong hands. The choices they make will decide their fate and the future of others. Will they risk everything for the truth?A Deep Thing by A.K. Smith

Short Excerpt:

Harvey next to her, Kendall, sat cross-legged on the bed, staring at her laptop. A glass of white wine, sat untouched on the bedside table. She put her iPod in, selected Jason Mraz and turned it up loud.

She turned off the Wi-Fi. Her mind was battling thoughts of hackers and computer surveillance.

She held the unusual memory stick in her hand before plugging it into the side of her computer. Black rubber surrounded the stick like the rubber on an underwater camera. Here goes. She watched it upload. Let’s see what this is all about.

Ten documents labeled by date flashed on her computer screen. Six documents dated years before Tim and Kendall met; the other four ranged from the beginning of their relationship to one dated three days before Tim died.

Inhaling deeply, she touched her mouse, pulling down to the right and clicking without hesitation on the last icon, a video file. She squeezed her eyes to hold back tears as Tim’s face filled the screen. The background was the upstairs office over the garage. She hit play.

“This message is for my wife. Kendall, if you’re watching this video, I’m so sorry not to be with you. Obviously, something happened to me for you to be hearing this. I know life’s been hard for you. I’m sorry, my love, I’m sorry I kept a secret from you, but I’ve been sworn to secrecy to protect a division of the US government. I hoped they will share this video with you. I can’t disclose the details about my job, but it’s not important to us. Something I did, not who I am. You know who I am, Kendall, you’re the only one who really knew me.” She wiped the tears running off her chin.

“Stay close with Ryder, he’s not your blood, but he is a part of me and I want him in your life. UWMA, Kendall, UWMA I love you, Lambie.”

Her brows furrowed as tears ran down her face and her open mouth. She gasped for air. A division of the US government? Some type of CIA agent? The badge said Navy. UWMA. Was this truly happening?

Featured Author – Casi McLean

Today I’m featuring Amazon Best -Selling Casi McLean and her book Beneath The Lake.

Award winning author, Casi McLean, pens novels to stir the soul with romance, suspense, and a sprinkle of magic. Her writing crosses genres from ethereal, captivating shorts with eerie twist endings to believable time slips, mystical plots, and sensual romantic suspense. Beneath The Lake won the 2016 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence for BEST Romantic Suspense.

Her stories entwine strong, believable heroines with delicious hot heroes to tempt the deepest desires then fans the flames, sweeping readers into their innermost romantic fantasies. Ms. McLean weaves exceptional romantic mystery with suspenseful settings and lovable characters you’ll devour. You’ll see, hear, and feel the magical eeriness of one fateful night. You’ll swear her time travel could happen, be mystified by her other worldly images, and feel heat of romantic suspense, but most of all you’ll want more.

Casi’s Inspiration For Beneath The Lake:

I love to talk about my, Beneath The Lake, and the eerie lake lore that inspired my muse. Abeneath-the-laketown that time forgot––the history and creepy stories attached to a rural area that sleeps beneath Atlanta’s famous man-made lake, Sidney Lanier, fascinated me. Homes, churches and businesses still linger beneath the surface. The moonshiners of the 1940’s added built-in suspense, and the birth of NASCAR. Looper Speedway, a half-mile dirt track where bootleggers competed with their souped-up cars, exposed its cement stands in a recent draught.

There’s a Lady of the Lake who haunts the ghost town too––the spine-chilling lore is the basis for book three in my Beneath The Lake series, Between The Shadows. Some say she lures victims to her watery grave. The truth is, swimmers get trapped among the deadfall of sheered-off trees and town remains. Even expert divers get tangled beneath the murky surface, hence the lake’s unnerving label: Lanier never gives up its dead. The inspiration swirled in my mind, begging for a story to be told. What a perfect setting for my romantic time-slip suspense series.

Why time-slip? Ever since my childhood imagination discovered Madeleine L’Engles, A Wrinkle In Time, the idea of time travel intrigued me. And Lake Lanier, a man-made lake with mesmerizing history, presented a plausible theory. What if the excavation explosions triggered a seismic shift? Given enough energy, could the blasts rip a portal into a different dimension or a crack in time? The possibilities were endless.

The birth of Lacey Montgomery evolved through my young adult love for Jude Deveraux’s A Knight In Shining Armor. The time-slip novel introduced her endearing Montgomery family. I hope my books honor her inspiration. My high school friend, Hilary Johnson, inspired the persona of my heroine, Lacey Montgomery. A lawyer, discouraged with defending criminals, yearned to help honest people in trouble. Some of Hillary’s finer qualities became part of Lacey––the dysfunctional relationships came from my own personal experiences. LOL. Once these elements entwined, Beneath The Lake blossomed with an energy and life of its own.

The sequel, Beyond The Mist, picks up where the first story ends incorporating two minor characters as the new hero and heroine. Beyond The Mist is complete, in editing, and will be published in a few months.

I hope you enjoy my trailer, blurb, and the opening excerpt below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwOqm8DUUfA

Blurb –

A ghost town submerged beneath Atlanta’s famous man-made Lake Lanier reportedly lures victims to a watery grave. But when Lacey Montgomery’s car spins out of control and hurtles into the depths of the icy water, she awakens in the arms of a stranger, in a town she’s never heard of–34 years before she was born.

When the 2012 lawyer tangles with a 1949 hunk, fire and ice swirl into a stream of sweltering desire. Bobby Reynolds is smitten the moment the storm-ravaged woman opens her eyes and, despite adamant protest, Lacey falls in love with a town destined for extinction, and the man who vows to save his legacy.

Threatened by a nefarious stalker, the wrath of bootleggers, and twists of fate, Lacey must find the key to a mysterious portal before time rips the lovers apart, leaving their star-crossed spirits to wander forever through a ghost town buried beneath the lake.

Excerpt:

Lake Lanier, Georgia—June 2011

A final thud hurled him backward, flailing through brush and thickets like a rag doll. Grasping at anything to break momentum, Rob’s hand clung to a branch wedged into the face of the precipice. Spiny splinters sliced his skin. Blood oozed and trickled into his palms, and one by one, his fingers slowly slipped.

A sharp crack echoed through the silence of the ravine as the bough succumbed to his weight. He plummeted into free-fall. Clenching his eyes, he drew in a deep breath, terrified of the pain, the mauling that waited on the jagged rocks below.

When icy water broke his fall, the chill kept him from losing consciousness. He spun, straining to see, but darkness enveloped him. Soggy clothing pulled him deeper—deeper into the murky, fathomless depths. He wrestled to squirm free from the waterlogged jacket dragging him down to a watery grave, watched the coat disappear into black obscurity. Panic gripped his stomach, or was it death that snaked around his chest, squeezing, squeezing, squeezing the air, the life from his body? Lack of oxygen burned his lungs, beckoning surrender, and a shard of rage pierced his gut as reality set in. He lunged upward with one last thrust and burst from the water’s deadly grip, gasping for air. A gurgling howl spewed from the depths of his soul and echoed into silence.

Sunlight shimmered across a smooth, indigo lake, but aside from the slight ripples of his own paddling, nothing but stillness surrounded him. He floated toward the shore, sucking deep breaths into his lungs until the pummeling in his chest subsided. When he reached the water’s edge, he hoisted his body onto the soft red clay and collapsed while the sun’s warmth drained the tension from his body.

No one knew he had survived. The rules had shifted. Now he could reinvent himself, become a stealth predator. His target: Lacey Madison Montgomery.

Featured Author – Tena Stetler

Today I’m featuring Tena Stetler and her book A Demon’s Witch.

Best selling author, Tena Stetler, uses her over-active imagination to spin tales of paranormal romance/suspense and cozy mysteries. Her spicy romances spin the adventures of magical kick-ass women and mystical alpha males that dare to love them. From demons to faeries and witches to vampires her intriguing characters take roads less traveled to draw you into exciting tales that  engage the imagination and warm the heart.

Tena’s Inspiration for A Demon’s Witch:

A Demon’s Witch was my debut novel and has remained close to my heart. A Demon’s a-demons-witchWitch hit the market and garnered best seller status. It earned The Romantic Reviews Readers Choice 2016 Nominee in the paranormal romance category.   I love talking about this story.

The ideas begin to percolate as I sat in a beauty salon listening to the chatter from other customers. One woman swore she’d been approached by a vampire want-to-be.

This got me to thinking, which is scary in and of itself. What if the hairdresser was an alpha male, Demon Overlord of the Western Hemisphere that owned a multi-species salon in Washington DC? Enter a powerful witch, whose beauty caught the eye of the demon on a rainy day when she rushed into his salon. Now, unbeknownst to him, she is not any ordinary witch, but the little sister of the demon’s enforcer. Now you have a romance with unbelievable complications.

The story became a series, but the other planned books in the series took a strange turn when the majority of readers and reviewers clamored for the enforcer, Tristian’s story to be next in line. I’d never considered writing a book on the witch’s brother, the demon’s enforcer. But after mulling it over for several months and publishing three unrelated books,

I am excited to announce A Warlock’s Secrets (Tristian’s story) is awaiting cover art and will be published spring 2017. So please watch for it!

I hope you enjoy my blurb and peek into A Demon’s Witch.

Keeping a lid on all the paranormal beings inhabiting Washington D.C., is a daunting job. Bruce, a six hundred year old demon and the Territory Overlord of the Western Hemisphere, keeps his finger on the pulse of DC’s power players through the activities at his highly successful Wycked Hair Salon. His movie star good looks and body builder physique keeps his dance card full and the rumor mills running.  Within these walls, his anonymity is safe, mostly.

Bruce’s world spins out of control when Angelique, a pint size, gorgeous witch, with an attitude breezes through the doors of his salon. She is the younger sister of Tristian, Bruce’s long time trusted enforcer, whose professional skills are second to none. Tristian is furious at the relationship between Bruce and Angelique, a dangerous situation, but something darker threatens them all. Will undeniable attraction between demon and witch tear their worlds apart?

Excerpt:

At two in the morning he awoke feeling her restlessness, listening he heard her soft sobs. He pulled on his black silk lounge pants and grabbed the robe from the foot of his bed. Padding silently in his bare feet down the hall, he paused at her bedroom door just as her anguished scream filled the room. He was at the side of her bed a second later. Gathering her onto his lap, he held her unyielding body to his until her flailing limbs quieted and her troubled violet eyes opened. Cognizant of where she was now and with whom, she flung her arms around his neck and clung tight as shivers racked her slight frame.

Megan came running from the other wing of the house where the staff lived during the week. “Is everything all right?” She peeked inside Angie’s bedroom door.

“Just a nightmare, nothing to worry about. She’s awake now.

“Oh no my Lord,” Megan said in a low frantic whisper.

“Don’t call me that,” he growled, his amber eyes tinged with orange glowed in the dark room.

“Sorry. There’s something dark and dangerous chasing that one.” She nodded in Angie’s direction. “It’s not of this world.”

He lowered his voice and spoke kindly. “Go back to bed, I’ve got this handled.” He paused for a beat exhaling slowly. “For now.”

Featured Author – Kara O’Neal

Today I’m featuring author Kara O’Neal and her book Love’s Redemption.

Love’s Redemption is a story of forgiveness and courage. I loved writing this book. Willa is someone I admire. She’s had a tough life and does everything she can to love-s-redemptionprotect her loved ones. I enjoyed exploring her heart and watching her achieve happiness. And she deserves so much happiness. Lonnie is the man she needs, loyal, steady and kind. He is, without doubt, my favorite hero in the Pikes Run Series. (So far.) And while he has a calm nature, he can be just as assertive and determined as Willa. Together they make a wonderful couple, a model of true love. You will not be disappointed in their journey!

Blurb:

When she was little more than a child, Willa Kramer went to extreme lengths to save her family from their abusive father. After that horrible day, her mother and siblings moved to Tennessee, and Willa had hoped to leave Texas, its memories and Lonnie Davis, the only boy she had ever trusted, behind. But fate is unpredictable.

Five years have passed, and Lonnie finds himself reunited with Willa, the only girl he’s ever loved. He’s determined not to let her slip away again, but a figure from the past looms, threatening his hopes for the future.

Snippet:

He paused. His chest tightened. He’d waited a long time to see her, had wondered if he ever would. Years ago, she’d wrapped him around her little finger, and he’d grown so attached to her, he’d thought about moving to Tennessee to be with her. But then she had stopped writing. To say it had hurt would be an understatement. But he hadn’t been angry. He could never be angry with her. Never. And now she was back and near. It was too tempting.

After taking a deep breath, he moved forward then went through the screen door. Even though it gave a loud creak, she didn’t turn. Did she know it was he who stood behind her?

The light breeze ruffled her skirt. Her long, velvety hair grazed the small of her back. An ache centered in the pit of his stomach. He’d missed her. And now she was here. “Hello, Willa.”
