Cover Re-Reveal for Tap by Georgia Cates

Synopsis

A faceless name. That’s all she was when I agreed to play a part in deceiving her. But then the unplanned happened.

We met. And all I wanted from her was a dirty weekend . . . until that wasn’t enough and I longed for so much more.

Lawrence Thorn suddenly means the world to me. And that’s a problem. She’s my business partner’s sister. Forbidden fruit. Pursuing her can mean trouble for me at Lovibond Brewery. But I don’t care.

I yearn for her skin against mine.
I crave her smell on my body.
I want to make her laugh and then hear her moan my name.
And she does for a brief moment in time.

But Lawrence wants more than I’m able to give. And it’s a damn shame because there’s no one on earth I want more than her.

An epic love.
A miserable ending.
Unless it’s not.

SEDUCTION

Her British Stepbrother (Part 2)
Lauren Smith
Releasing March 8th, 2016
Forever Yours


The sequel to FORBIDDEN.


Tristan is a man who knows what he wants. And he wants Kat in his bed. All he has to do is convince her they belong together . . .



Kat knows the connection she and Tristan share is special. Her British bad boy is too much of everything: too hot, too arrogant, too irresistible to stay away from. He's her addiction and one night with him isn't enough.

That's what hurts the most. They can't date, can't be a normal couple, not when their parents are getting married. Because now that she knows he's going to be her stepbrother, no one can ever find out what they've done . . .




Seduction by Lauren Smith, picked right up where the first book in the Her British Stepbrother Series, Forbidden left off with Tristan and Kat learning that they are about to become step siblings. With this new information, Kat and Tristan's feelings and thoughts are all over the place. So much so, even debonair Tristan has to fight to maintain his cool.

Sure, they try to act normal for their parent's sake and with all of their family issues to deal with, their awkward behavior can be easily explained away. But try as they may, it is somewhat impossible for these two to fight what has been brewing between them which has transcended beyond the physical attraction and is teetering on love. And the fact that no one, including her father, thought that Kat was Tristan's 'type' provided another layer to thwart suspicion of what was simmering just below the surface between these two.

I enjoyed this installment of the Her British Stepbrother series, but I did not love it as I did the first book in the series. Let me be clear, I liked it... I really did, but the quick pace of this one got the best of me. Just when it was getting good, I mean good good, it was all over, so brace yourself. Also, something was just amiss here and I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe, it was the turmoil of emotions and that were here there and everywhere, or maybe... well I just don't know.

I digress. Overall, I will give this one 4-stars, and would recommend that you jog on out and read Seduction, Book Two of Her British Stepbrother Series by Lauren Smith.

About Lexington and 42nd



It was meant to be the job opportunity of a life time.

It turned out to be so much more…

At the age of twenty five, Emma Lexington takes off to New York on a once in a life time twelve-month job exchange with the New York Warriors. Determined to make the most of the opportunity, she prepares herself for life in the big apple—fast paced, exciting and a whole lot of fun. What she hasn’t prepare for though, is meeting him.

The charming Will Jensen is in the prime of his playing career. As the star quarterback for the Warriors, his carefree, football centric life is thrown into disarray when he meets Emma, the beautiful, easy going Australian girl who joins the Warriors staff.

Unwilling to throw her professional reputation away on a fling with the playboy quarterback, Emma turns down Will’s advances, even though she can’t deny the attraction she feels for him. Their pull toward one another grows, but it takes a near disaster for Emma to finally give Will a chance.

Getting together might have been hard, but figuring out how to stay together will prove even more challenging as Emma must decide between conflicting loyalties.

Lexington and 42nd is a fun, sexy romance, set in the exciting world of the NFL in the fabulous city of New York.

Excerpt

I jumped as Will’s hand brushed across my back.

“Hey, calm down. I’m not planning on groping you in here.” He shrugged, frowning. “I just wanted you to relax…you seem nervous.”

My shoulders fell, tension seeping from them as I shook my head. “I’m sorry, I am a little nervous. Today’s a big day for me.” I took a deep breath. If I wanted to clear the air, it was now or never. “And I’m sorry about last weekend. Things got a bit out of hand.”

Will leaned back against the desk, crossing his ankles. “No, you’re not the one who should be apologizing. I was out of line, and what I said wasn’t fair.” He shrugged. “I’m not saying I don’t find your reasoning frustrating, but if that’s how you really feel, I’ll back off.”

I nodded, finding it hard to meet his eyes. I hated the idea of him backing off but that was the very thing I’d asked him, no yelled at him, to do.

“I like you Em. We should be able to be friends. We get along well.”

I smiled, thinking how right he was. We did get along well. “Friends would be nice.”

He nodded. “Good, friends it is.”

“Yes, friends who refrain from dancing with each other.”

Will frowned. “We should still be able to dance together.”

I laughed. “Not the way you dance.” I felt my face go red just thinking about it. “I’m sorry, I’m just a little embarrassed about…you know…” my voice trailed off, unable to even consider verbalizing our last encounter. Innocent phrases like Texas or nightclub or dance floor felt like they should exist alongside other dirty words in some adults-only dictionary.

Will bent his head to meet my eyes. “If it helps, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about…you know…” His eyes ran down the length of my body and back up before widening deviously, and I had to lean against the desk to stop from sliding to the floor.

This man was going to destroy me and the worst thing was I was powerless to stop him.

About Kim Carmody


Kim Carmody Headshot 1Kim Carmody lives in Australia with her husband, in a sunny little part of Melbourne that she never wants to leave. Except for frequent trips to New York, she is happy to leave at least once a year for those.

She holds a Masters in Commerce Marketing and while she spent her younger years training to become a professional dancer, she somehow ended up working in the sports industry, where she met her now husband.  Never a participant or spectator of sport growing up (she was too busy flitting around in a tutu), she has grown to appreciate, if not love many sports and eventually found herself writing about them too.

As an avid book lover from the moment she was introduced to The Babysitters Club as a seven year-old, Kim never expected to be able to call herself an author, but is beyond excited that she now can.

Lexington and 42nd is her first novel.

Blog Tour: Wicked Beautiful by J.T. Geissinger




About WICKED BEAUTIFUL

Payback's a bitch...named Victoria.

Life coach and best-selling author Victoria Price has it all: a successful career, fabulous friends, a fantastic penthouse in Manhattan. What she doesn’t have—and doesn’t want—is a husband. Fifteen years ago her high school flame broke her heart so badly she swore she’d never love again. Now she makes millions teaching other women how to be just like her: a ruthless bitch.

Drop-dead sexy restauranteur and infamous playboy Parker Maxwell has only three rules for the women he dates: no questions about his past, no expectations for the future, and no spending the night. When he meets Victoria, however, he’s willing to break his own rules if it means sating the explosive desire she arouses in him. What he doesn’t know is that the alluring Victoria Price used to be the mousy Isabel Diaz, the girl he deflowered and dumped long ago.

Presented with a perfect opportunity for revenge, Victoria decides the game is on. But when her connection with Parker proves more than just skin deep, she has to make a choice: continue with her plan for payback, or risk her career, her reputation, and her heart by taking a second chance on love?

My Review

Wicked Beautiful by J.T. Gessinger is a second chance romance novel that takes you through a gambit of emotions from hurt to healing and utter disgust to admiration for the main characters Victoria Price and Parker Maxwell. These two truly had a teenage love affair reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet, but not. First, Parker doesn’t’ even know Victoria is his teenaged lover,  and for second, they come from opposite sides of the preverbal train tracks and Parker’s father vehemently does not want his son dating someone like Victoria, who is of a different race and socio-economic background.  

Fifteen years ago, Parker abruptly breaks Victoria’s heart  and killed her soul when at the age of 17 and completely disappears. So what does Victoria do, she picks herself up from the pit of despair and gets even with a pen and a makeover that catapults her to stardom and the H.B.I.C. Literally. Victoria thinks she has it all together until Parker pops up and fantasies of revenge fill her head, but her heart calls out for the love she once had and still has for him. So, while she's plotting revenge, Parker is planning their lives together and just when you think the jig is up, a twist is thrown into the mix and sends the story up down and all around, tossing a gambit of even more emotions in the atmosphere.

This novel can best be describe as a story of feels. My feelings were all over the place. I wanted to hate Victoria, but I couldn’t because she did suffer some tremendous losses along the way. And I really wanted to hate Parker, but sheesh, I just couldn’t. Their friends were hilarious and have interesting lives and stories of their own. However, I did settle on the fact that I did not, without any question like Parker’s father and as the story unfolded, Victoria’s mother wasn’t necessarily ‘mother of the year’.

I digress. I would give this read 4-stars and would recommend that you jog and read Wicked Beautiful by J.T. Geissinger. This is the third novel I have read by this author and I can honestly say, characters have traits about that them that are so relatable. She consistently has a diverse cast of characters that are relatable to myself as a reader or reminds me of that one friend that does those odd things. If you have not read any of her books, I would definitely recommend that you read Sweet As Sin and Make Me Sin both good and both out now. Oh and before I leave you, add Wicked Sexy to your ‘Want to Read’ list on Goodreads, to be release Summer 2016.

THE EARL NEXT DOOR

The Bachelor Lords of London #1
Charis Michaels
Releasing March 1st, 2016
Avon Impulse


Charis Michaels makes her Avon
Impulse debut with the first book in her new historical romance series, The Bachelor Lords of London...featuring a brooding earl and the American heiress who charms him.

American heiress Piety Grey is on the run. Suddenly in London and facing the renovation of a crumbling townhouse, she’s determined to make a new life for herself—anything is better than returning to New York City where a cruel mother and horrid betrothal await her. The last thing she needs is a dark, tempting earl inciting her at every turn…

Trevor Rheese, the Earl of Falcondale, isn’t interested in being a good neighbor. After fifteen years of familial obligation, he’s finally free. But when the disarmingly beautiful Piety bursts through his wall—and into his life—his newfound freedom is threatened…even as his curiosity is piqued.

Once Piety’s family arrives in London, Falcondale suddenly finds himself in the midst of a mock courtship to protect the seductive woman who’s turned his world upside down. It’s all for show—or at least it should be. But if Falcondale isn’t careful, he may find a very real happily ever after with the woman of his dreams…

An Interview with Charis Michaels

Thank you for taking the time to hang out with me (us) today.


Let's talk your newbie status at Avon...how does it feel to be the new girl in town?  How do you feel your historical romance stand out among the crowd?

Well, I haven’t been privy to the secret handshake, but I just received my team shirt, and I love the rhinestones.  I’m kidding, of course, but only a little.  The sense of family and support from both the professionals at Avon Books and the other Avon authors has been phenomenal.   
         
During a romance-writer conference last summer, I was invited to two Avon-author events in New York City—one in their downtown offices and the other a cocktail party in Highline.  When the invitations arrived some weeks before, I was certain there had been some mistake.  Yes, I had signed with Avon, but my books would not come out for nine months

I sent some feelers out and guess what?  No mistake, they included me, just the same as Avon authors whose work I have admired for years. 

From the moment I stepped off the elevators (and let me just tell you, the publishing offices of Avon books does, in fact, look just like a movie set, down to the framed iconic book covers hanging on the walls), I was embraced by everyone. 

For a writer whose goal publisher had been Avon Books literally for years, it was a dream come true. 

For a terrified newbie who was chanting, Act naturally in my head, it was an opportunity to blurt out, “How is your brain?!” to New York Times best seller Sarah MacLean (who I knew had undergone brain surgery earlier in the year).  Other awkward moments abounded, all in service to my nerves and inexperience, but I left feeling as if I truly was part of the Avon family. 

How do my books stand out?  Well, I try to deliver three things to readers:  humor, hopefulness, and conflict that stands the test of what I like to call a good talking-to.  That is, my characters have more to overcome than simple misunderstandings or some impasse that could be solved with a good, long talk.  These characters may be made for each other, but they have to work for their happily-ever-afters, and getting there is so much fun.

Anger. Guilt. Sorrow. They'vestrangled Cole for years-and now they've literally damaged him.

Safety. Anonymity. Invisibility. 

Those are just a few advantages of Internet “dating.” Even better, as far as Hannah Miller is concerned, is the fact that she can shed all inhibitions without worrying about what he thinks of her figure or her face. “He” is bikerboy357, the man who knows what Hannah likes, and wants her—every night—as much as she wants him. When he asks to meet, Hannah hesitates. But the temptation is too strong. And after one look into his sultry green eyes, there’s no turning back.

Cade MacKenzie’s never met a woman who’s wasn’t blinded by his billion-dollar net worth, but “H” knows neither his face nor his name. Her words are so smart, sweet, and scorchingly sexy that Cade’s willing to gamble she’ll be just as amazing in person. And she is. But even as every delicious encounter makes Cade want Hannah more, what he wants most is her trust.

It’s something all his money can’t buy. And now, Cade will do anything to earn it.
