New Excerpt! Giveaways! Inverviews! November!

Oh boy. I saw a tweet go by this morning that said only 6 more tuesdays until Christmas. Can you beileve that? I’m choosing not to, but I think I will kick up my christmas shopping. And decide on my Thanksgiving treats! Last year I didn’t bake much. I hope to change that this year.

First up…guess what I have! ARCs for Rough Tumble! I have to say. I didn’t realize this release was THIS CLOSE. As in…this weekend. I have the book posted at goodreads. You longtimers around here know the drill. Add the book to a shelf at Goodreads and for every ten of you who do, I’ll give away a copy until the book releases. And did I mention Chapter One is on my website here?

The AReCafe at All Romance Ebooks is offering a book-a-day give away and In Her Sights is the book today! I’m not all the ways you’ll be able to win, but I know if you RT this post, you’ll be entered.

Also today, I was interviewed at Scarberryfields Forever. If you’re feeling chatty, drop by and leave me a comment.

If you’ve been waiting for it,In Her Sightsis now at the iBookstore and Diesel! woot!

Some call her a killer.
Others call her a hero.

Lexie Olympia calls herself neither. She’s getting the job done because she can. A beloved philanthropist by day who’s nicknamed Melville’s Sweetheart, Lexie has the city wrapped around her little finger. Having been a victim in the past, left behind with the killer still on the loose, Lexie knows what it’s like to live with that fear. Instead of biting her nails over it, she takes action. Drug lords, gang leaders, con artists, kidnappers, serial killers, anyone who leaves behind innocent victims are marked on Lexie’s list.

When a neighbor leaves a stolen ancient dagger on her doorstep and skips town, Lexie’s left picking up the pieces. The police, a local private investigator, and a gang are all after this artifact and Lexie uses her nighttime persona, Artemis, to get to the bottom of things. Everything is going smoothly until she gets caught.

Let’s Play!

I have a new release! Rough Play is now out in the world and available! To celebrate that I am already back on my Roughnecks Blog Tour!

My stop today is at Deep In The Heart Romance and I’ve thrown my heroes into a game show! Drop by and leave me a comment and you’ll be entered for a chance at Ella Drake’s Desert Blade! It’s a Near-Future, Science Fiction Romance, Post-Apocalyptic — Novella!

Now a little on Rough Play!

Jacob Iverson has plans. Distant plans, but they do exist. Find the right woman, eventually settle down and do the whole “white picket fence” routine. But until eventually comes, he’s having fun with right now. Then he meets Flora, who blows him back a step. Or two. Suddenly his distant plans are rushing up to meet him…only not quite the way he imagined.

Abandoned at seventeen, Flora Simms has made her way through the world, found life and family in the form of two best friends. Everything is just the way she likes it. From life to love to relationships, she knows what she wants, how she wants it, and doesn’t care if anyone agrees or not. And what she doesn’t want is someone trying to tie her down with long-term plans. But Jacob Iverson brings images of the future to her mind, and heart. Jacob somehow knows what she needs and he’s hitting all the right spots. But can Flora give up her idea of independence to let him in?

And finally, a little about Rough Ride. Like to read before you buy? Chapter One is here

You do for family, no matter what. Lane Iverson knows that better than anyone. Harboring a secret about his mother’s death, Lane is counting the days until he finishes helping his brothers with some work and can head back to his hiding hole hours away. As long as he doesn’t have to face his three brothers every day, the guilt is easier to carry.

There is only one thing that can risk his plan. All of five foot tall with these deep eyes and a voice that shudders through him. The completely addicting, Gretchen Jones. She’s been watching him the entire time he’s been in town. With courage from her friends behind her, she confronts what she wants. To her surprise, that’s the easy part. Keeping her heart protected when she knows he’ll be leaving? Not so easy, but her only choice.

Week 3: Play Peek!

Happy Memorial Day everyone! Please, please, please have a safe and fun holiday! Eat plenty of barbeque and cake!

 

If you’ve been following along on my Monday’s Play Peek, here’s the 3rd installment. Next week will be the last one!

What is the Play Peek? Every Monday of my Roughnecks Blog Tour for Rough Ride I’m posting a section of chapter one of book two in the series, Rough Play (say that five times fast!…or maybe it’s not that hard after all.) To catch up, here’s  Week 1 and Week 2.

A dismissal. Other men would probably walk away. Jacob wasn’t like other men. He saw something he wanted and he wasn’t going anywhere until getting it. If life taught him one thing it was you want it, you gotta go get it. And he wanted. “Need any help?”

Her ponytail swished across her back, the loose, long blonde strands fell over her shoulder as she glanced around. “Thought we decided I was plenty capable?”

“We did. But if you finish early there’s time to take you to dinner.”

She propped her fists on her hips and met his gaze. Dear God by the spark in her eye and turn of her brow, he was just getting a taste of this woman. “Are you asking me out because you think I’m easy? Because I’m a plumber I probably don’t get a lot of dates.”

Direct. Even better. “If I thought you were easy, I wouldn’t have bothered with the dinner part.”

Her lips twitched. “Too bad.”

He followed. “Too bad what?”

“Too bad you didn’t take me for easy.” She glanced over her shoulder. “That I would have gone for.”

She was speaking his language now. He didn’t think it possible, but this woman just got better and better. “Well in that case.”

She chuckled, her finger tsk’d side-to-side in the air. “Nope. Too late. You’ve already shown your colors as one of those clingy relationship guys. We had a good thing going here. You ruined it with that date talk.”

Jacob Iverson. Clingy relationship guy. He nearly laughed aloud. Dear God, the people who would fall on their asses if they ever heard that. “Are you for real?”

She continued walking, chin up, steps sure and words sounding somewhat distracted. “Last time I checked I was, but if you wake up from a dream in a few hours I guess you’ll know.”

He was helpless but to follow. He didn’t follow women. Never even chased this much. By now there was either an unmistakable cold shoulder or an agreement for later. This was still uncertain. And exciting. Jacob was in desperate need of exciting to break up the nonstop work he’d been doing for the last seven months. Or pretending to do, if you asked his brothers. “So you could be the woman of my dreams.”

Her brow lifted. “Again with the clingy talk.”

He’d moved close enough to smell the scent coming from her. She’d squatted again and that little patch of skin was back on display. “Depends on the kind of dream.”

She laughed. The sound full and rich. “Touché.”

“What time and where should I pick you up? Or would you rather meet?”

“Maybe next time I see you at the bar I’ll just meet you around back in five minutes?”

Heat settled through his bones and sent a groan up the back of his throat. Hell. Yeah. See, he knew this girl was something different. “I’ll be at the bar when the door opens today.”

She chuckled. “I already have plans tonight.”

“Another day?”

She grinned and reached in her tool belt again. “Let me know if you wake up from that dream to people throwing rice at us or if we’re sweating. Then I’ll let you know.”

Throwing rice? He all but shook at the idea of marriage. Commitment. One woman and a thin sheet of paper binding them for eternity. Or at least through the length of divorce court. His skin itched and crawled. Like an allergy. Being allergic to the idea of marriage. Sounded about right. “I’ll do that. Will you be back here tomorrow so I can give you my answer?”

“Depends if I finish taking my measurements today.”

“How about a phone number just in case?”

Her brow arched and she pulled her tape measure from her hip. “How about we let fate decide?”

“Seems risky.”

“We’ve been passing each other for months. Fate is well on our side.”

He grinned. “True. What about a name so I know what to call out? Unless you like Diner Chick.” He glanced to her hips. “Or now that I’ve seen the belt, I can call you Tool Belt Chick.”

She shook her head and a humored huff of breath pushed out of her. “Are you saying the belt turns you on?”

He glanced down her body. He couldn’t find anything about her that wasn’t turning him on at the moment. Mud included. He nearly outlined her body with his hands, but resisted. “Will you wear it when we meet in the alley for hot sweaty sex just steps away from getting caught?”

He thought she might have shivered, but he wasn’t sure. It was hard to tell with the way her breasts pressed against the front of that tight shirt. She stroked a hand over the old leather of her belt. “I don’t wear it when I’m not working. Besides, it would wrinkle my pants.”

“Well there’s a simple solution to that.”

“What’s that?” A single shaped brow lifted.

“Don’t wear pants.”

Jill Shalvis: An Interview, A Review and a Giveaway!

Woot. Have to say, when Jill’s blog tour sign ups came through twitter, I jumped on that baby volunteering for an interview, review and a giveaway in hopes I’d for sure get picked!

Me: Out of all the Lucky Harbor books, what character do you most identify with? I LOVE Chloe. This is going to sound silly but when I was reading her I had bronchitis and had issues with breathing. I kept reading and thinking ‘I feel ya, honey’. If not for that, I’d be all about Tara.

Jill: I love Chloe but I probably identify most closely with Mallory of LUCKY IN LOVE. Always the good girl looking for a walk on the wild side. :)

Me: Ooh, yes. I so agree with you there! I hadn’t read Mallory when I asked that question, but I fell in love with her so fast. If you were going to be a main character of a book, what genre would you want to be in? (It’s all romance, so if you pick suspense, you know you’re going to live to the end. *wink*)

Jill:I’d want to star in an action adventure with a very sexy costar. But if we have to race through a jungle to save the world, I would like it to have no bugs.

Me: That sounds like fun if we can skip the snakes too! And for the writers out there, do you have a set number of words, time or amount that you write or edit each day?

Jill: I work full time. I don’t always keep track of the progress, I find that can make me panicky. I just go as long as the goings good.

*makes notes* Thanks for answering my questions, Jill! As part of jumping on your tour, I was also sent Lucky In Love to read. It was SO. GOOD.

I’m going to make this quick because there’s only so many ways you can say “This is super and you should read it!” But I will try. If you want the blurb, check out those handy buy links I pasted below. :D

Anyway, Mallory Quinn was tons of fun. She’s looking for adventure, looking to broaden her horizons. She’s the small-town good girl and she wants to be more. She’s…super and you should read the book because if you like fun heroines who want something more, then you’ll like Mallory.

Ty Garrison is not as adventurous. He’s a good bit tortured and recovering from an accident that was heck on his body and on his mind. His focus has been on recovering so he can get back to work. So much so that on facebook, he’s known as Mysterious Cute Guy. Let me tell you, remaining mysterious is hard to pull off in a small town—but with his focus on recovering, I can so see it working. What kind of accident is he recovering from? Well, it’s super and you’ll have to read it!

These two work so well together. They were really super and you’ll have to read it!

Okay, that last bit was only partly a joke. It is super, but the reason they work well together is Mallory really needs that Mysterious aspect Ty brings her. In turn, Mallory is levelheaded, but also such a doll face. She becomes a bright, unexpected spot in his life that has been filled with so much focus on trying to fix his body.

This was a sexy, emotional filled read. Truly, don’t take my opinion because it’s a super story that you should read and find out why yourself. Of all the Lucky Harbor books I’ve read (um, all of them?) this one really seemed to have the most emotional meat in it for me. There’s not a past between them or an inn to run or money to make. It’s just him and her, leaning on each other, working through their issues to a happily ever after.

Don’t forget to leave me a comment! I have a copy of Lucky In Love and you want this book. Don’t argue. Just comment.
