Red & Wolfe (Part One)

 

When Sarah "Red" Ryder loses her job as an art critic for a Boston newspaper, she's brokenhearted. Worse than that? She's broke. Her boyfriend recently left her - for a tatted-up hottie with a dick - so she's stuck paying her hefty apartment rent alone. After two months unemployed, there's no money left. With no immediate family to turn to, Red reaches out to her estranged grandmother, a reclusive writer living on an island off the coast of Charleston. Several days later, Red receives $30,000 and an invitation to visit.

 

James Wolfe is not Red's grandmother. But he beckons her. Red has the ability to give him something he needs. He won't take "no" for an answer, and he doesn't mind screwing her over. He lost his conscience six years ago, when he was tried for the murder of his wife. Since then, life is about him - and the paintings he does under the mysterious pseudonym "W."

 

Wolfe needs the island to keep painting. To live his life away from prying eyes. To keep up the anonymity of "W."

 

Once he sees Red, he finds that he needs her, too. And Wolfe will have her. Any way he can.



 

Excerpt

"Red?" I push her gown down a little further and close my mouth over her breast, working her nipple with my lips. Caressing it with my tongue. I'm rewarded by a soft moan that goes straight to my cock. I need to be inside her, despite knowing I don't have the time.

 

I pull the covers down and slide my hand up her shin, then up her thigh. She's warm from sleep. Her skin feels like burnished velvet. My fingers brush her pussy and she lifts her hips. She wants it. I love the way she always wants it.

 

"Race."

 

I love the way she says my name: a mew.

 

"I'm going to fuck you with my fingers," I say, leaning near her face. "Then you'll go to sleep again."

 

A dreamy smile floats over her lips. She nods a little, pressing her head into the pillow.

 

I slide a finger into her. She's hot and tight, softer than silk. I can feel her clench as I pump into her. She's wet this morning. So fucking slick. I stroke in and out, painting her pussy, using my fingertip to smooth warm lines around her swollen clit.

 

I'm rewarded by her crying out.

 

"Say my name."

 

I still my hand. I can hear my blood rush in my ears. Race. Say Race.

 

Her hands grab at my wrist. "Race."

 

I allow myself a brief grin. It's undiluted satisfaction. She knows - or at least suspects - I'm James Wolfe, but she's still in my bed.

 

"Say 'Race, please.' I like to hear you beg." I push another finger into her. Her body quivers. "I like to feel you jump."

 

I stretch her with a third finger and slide my thumb over her clit. I'm moving slow. So slow.

 

"Race, oh God - yes. Please."

 

"That's right, sweetheart."

Blitz: Gypsy Brothers Series by Lili St Germain




Seven Sons (Book One)
 *See where it all began*
*Please note this book is dark romance and deals with serious themes including rape, violence and murder.*

This story unfolds over seven volumes approx. 25 - 30,000 words each.

My father was most certainly NOT an innocent man. As the leader of the Gypsy Brothers MC, he was guilty of many things. But he died for a crime that he didn’t commit, framed by an enemy within who then stole his club and everything he had ever worked to protect.

Including my innocence.

When Dornan Ross framed my father, he set into motion a series of events that could never be undone. My father was murdered by Dornan Ross and his sons when I was fifteen years old.

Before my father died, Dornan and his sons stole my innocence, branded my skin and in doing so, ensured that their lives would be prematurely cut short. That they would suffer.

I’ve just turned twenty-one, and I’m out for blood. I'm out for revenge.

But I didn't expect to fall for Jase, the youngest brother in the club.

I didn't expect that he would turn my world upside down, yank my heart out of my chest and ride away into the sunset with it.

Now, I'm faced with an impossible choice - Jase, or avenging my fathers death?

Author Spotlight/Interview: Meghan Riley


Author Bio.:

Meghan Riley graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Maryland and immediately pursued her lifelong passion for the written word. Her debut novel, Anna, presented itself as a way for Riley to inspire teenage girls to expand their interests beyond the typical teenage quandaries, ultimately encouraging females toward an interest in science. She is currently hard at work on the sequel to Anna. Riley currently lives in North Carolina with her significant other, her mother, two clingy cats, and an opinionated dog.

Interview With Meghan

Do you have any strange writing habits (like standing on your head or writing in the shower)?

I like to have two Oreo cookies and a cup of coffee when I write.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Keeping up with the science behind it. I write one theory, but by the time I finish a piece, there's a new one. But, I guess, that's science - always a developing theory.

What's the weirdest thing you've Googled for research?

The inner biology of a nose. I can't reveal why, but I needed to know the exact structure. Oh, I also looked at a lot of pictures of skin disorders for 'Anna'. Talk about ewww!

What's a typical working day like for you? When and where do you write? Do you set a daily writing goal?

My book writing isn't my day job. I actually spend my days blogging and doing social media marketing, among other related things, for a real estate team. So, I write a lot, but my book doesn't get attention until after I put my little one down to sleep at night. I used to try to write 1,500 words a day, but it's near impossible to do with a full time job and a toddler. However, I know if I  write nothing, I'll get into a bad habit of not writing for weeks, so I try to write SOMETHING.

What inspired you to write Anna?

My own day dreams as a child and the desire to see more science fiction in the hands of teenage girls. The first book doesn't have a huge sci-fi theme to it, but the whole series is sci-fi.

Were any of the characters in Anna based on people you know?

No, not really. I stole characteristics from here and there, but I didn't write any of them strictly around one person.

If you were writing a book about your life, what would the title be?

Blank Stares

What are you working on now?

The sequel to 'Anna'.

What question have you always wanted to be asked in an interview?

Why is 'Anna' so slow to develop?

Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

Please leave a review. Indie authors don't have deep pockets. Reviews are what helps Indie authors sell books.




Synopsis:

To the outside world, Anna appears to be an ordinary high school senior... 

Anna has a lot of questions. Should she pursue her desire to leave home for college and live out her dream of becoming a physicist? Or should she stay home and help care for her family, which has struggled ever since her father died in Afghanistan? Is her crush, Steve, really interested in her, or is he only using the highly intelligent Anna to try and boost his grades in school? 

These questions, plus the ordinary trials and tribulations of high school, distract Anna from noticing some very... strange things that are beginning to happen to her. 

For as long as Anna can remember, she has had a haphazard smattering of freckles on her arm. But these freckles are starting to change, and cause a series of unnerving hallucinations and odd side effects that only Anna seems to notice. When a strange shadow man starts to haunt her nights, she decides to go on a hunt for the truth to discover, once and for all, what is happening to her. The hallucinations continue growing stronger, however, and each new visit by the shadow man appears to become more and more threatening. Eventually, Anna realizes that she can no longer hide from her friends and family what is happening to her. 

But as she shares her secret with those closest to her, Anna never imagines that her very life, and the lives of those she loves, will be put in jeopardy.

Who, or what, is Anna?

Excerpt: THE TOKEN 8: Kiki

Quote: I've seen a thousand tears and wiped away none.

His studies my expression and laughs. “What?”

“She has been punished.”

There is no one around to hear what I say. My staff understands discretion on an intimate level, but Mick's voice goes low regardless.

“God,” Mick plows his hand through his hair, “are you still doing the ka-ching!” Mick pantomimes snapping a whip.

“I don't use whips, though it's an excellent suggestion. Not that I need any help in the creative parts.”

Mick grunts. “I am not discussing your sex life.”

I raise an eyebrow. “Really?”

“Can't you just fuck normally?”

“That's discussing it.”

Mick stomps away, jamming his helmet back on his head. “I don't want Kiki messed with.”

I follow him like a prowling cat. “I am not messing with Kandace.”

Our gazes lock.

“That's what scars the shit out of me. I know how serious your are, driven. You get your sights on something and watch out.”

I cross my arms, the leather of my jacket making a crinkling sound. “True. So why do I feel like you're cautioning me.”

“Thorn--”

“Oh please. That thug?”

Mick leans forward, dangerously close to putting a finger in my chest.

Neither one of us want that. It cannot end well. We're almost like siblings, Mick and I. And we can sometimes fight like them too.

“Thorn is not a thug, he's a cop.”

I shrug and he frowns, going on. “And, you're the one who got into it with him at the Black Rose last year. Amazing Kiki will date you.”

“I wouldn't call it dating.”

“Fuck,” Mick says in dismay, his hands clenching into fists.

“That is more like it.”

“Oh my God. Don't tell me you're boning my wife's best friend. It will so have my ass in the dog house if you use Kiki.” His eyes search my face. “Screw over Chloe—now that bitch? She's deserving.”

I smirk, throwing up my palms in an inoffensive truce gesture. “She has already received much of what she deserves.”

Mick holds up a palm. “Don't. God, just don't tell me man.”

“Dating will come later. If I had to wait one more minute, live through one more unanswered text where you denied me—I was going to cease to exist. I tried to be patient. In the end, you caused me to be what I am right now. A starving animal.”

I step closer.

“Maybe, once I've fucked you every day for a month—we can see a movie.”

Kandace shivers.

I step nearer still.

Her knuckles turn white from the death grip she keeps on the countertop.

“But right now, I want to know your body. Need to.”

“Well—that's great, Chet. Maybe I want to know more.”

I grin suddenly.

“You will.”

Book Blitz: Moonlight in Winter Park by Samantha Chase






Moonlight in Winter Park by Samantha Chase 
Publication date: November 24th 2014 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Synopsis:

“Moonlight in Winter Park” – A modern-day Beauty and the Beast style Christmas.

All Hope Cooper needed this year was to have the kind of Christmas her family always cherished. But with her parents gone and her only brother having to work, it doesn’t look like it’s going to work out for her. There’s nothing she can do about her parents, but she most certainly can voice her annoyance at her brother’s boss for making him work out of town all through the holidays.

Beckett James hates the holidays and everything that goes with them. They were important at one time, but now the only thing that mattered was his company and it’s continued growth and anyone who worked for him better feel the same way. If not, then they could find employment elsewhere and good riddance. With a major expansion deal on the line, Beckett needs to focus. What he doesn’t need is Hope to come barging into his mountain retreat demanding that her brother come home immediately due to an emergency.

Suddenly it’s two alone in a snowstorm. Two alone for Christmas. And two alone to fight an attraction that had been there all along. Hope soon begins to realize she may have misjudged Beckett while he comes to see that there really is something special and magical about Christmas. But once they leave their private winter wonderland and return to their normal lives, will the magic still be there?

Purchase:    Amazon



Excerpt

“Hope?  Hope, come on, sweetheart, open your eyes.  Talk to me,” he coaxed as he quickly got the rope off of her and her suitcase.  His hand was bleeding and he was starting to get numb from the cold but he needed her to wake up so that he could get her on the snowmobile and get them back to the house.  He felt for her pulse and almost cried with relief when he found it.  Patting her cheek, he gently called her name again.

Long eyelashes fluttered open as she seemed to blink him into focus.  “Beckett?” she whispered. “What…?  How…?”

“Come on,” he said and carefully pulled her into a sitting up position.  “You’re soaked to the skin and we need to get you warmed up.  Can you stand for me?”

“No, I can’t stand you,” she muttered as she gingerly came to her feet.

Beckett couldn’t help but laugh.  The snarky comeback meant that she was going to be all right.



AUTHOR BIO:   

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well. 

When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.

Monica and Alex Waters have spent that last few months working to repair a broken marriage and rekindle their passion. Just as they start finding their spark, Quinn Matthews and his escalating career resurfaces, but this time Alex makes the decision to let Monica go.

The devastation of losing her high school sweetheart, her home, and even her dog twists Monica down a destructive path that alienates her from her closest friends and lands her on Quinn’s couch. Despite her efforts to resist jumping into his arms again, the spark between them reignites and sweeps her away on a whirlwind holiday adventure. She finds that falling in love with Quinn’s family and lifestyle is as easy as falling for his ocean colored eyes.

Quinn has a secret that was never meant to be kept this long, but will Monica be able to trust another man who’s lied? And now that Quinn’s got his happily ever after in sight, he’s not about to let her go or share her with another man.

Excerpt -  (Monica and her husband Alex run into Quinn very unexpectedly)

The outdoor style shopping mall is bustling with tourist and local art lovers. Rows of art galleries surround the courtyard where a stage welcomes a local reggae band. Monica settles into a groove and starts dancing with the crowd. Alex tries to hang in for a couple of songs before he starts feeling claustrophobic and looks to the galleries and shops around them.

“Go ahead,” she says with a loving smile. “I’ll meet you down there… after one more song.”

He gives her a little kiss on the cheek and glides his hand across her behind before making his way out of the crowd. His attention is pulled by various pieces in gallery windows along the way. There’s a large glass sea turtle in shades of green and gold followed by a painting of an autumn forest with heavy texture. He stands daydreaming for a minute until he’s distracted by a reflection passing in the glass. It’s so brief he’s sure it’s his imagination. He barely catches a glimpse down the mall as the backside of the man disappears into another gallery.

Alex follows the ghost, dodging through happy couples and pushy salespeople trying to get his attention. Before he can see inside the gallery, a painting that’s prominently displayed on a front wall stops him. A cold washes over as he stands there staring at it. He slowly moves inside, mesmerized by the familiar vibrant paint strokes until he sees a few people gathered in the back. A man talking to two smiling women stills himself as Alex’s eyes freeze on the back of his shaved head. No words were needed as the tropical air takes a chill. Even the women sense a showdown, and step back to give Quinn room.

Quinn turns. What do I say? Fuck! I thought that was him. I hoped it wasn’t. Quinn moves very slowly towards Alex. Is he gonna hit me? I do deserve it. Might as well get it over with. “Hey.” Quinn pauses near the center of the room waiting.

Alex swallows hard, his nostrils flaring and fist clenched. His jaw flexes as his breathing grows heavier, but the emotions just start to turn to mush. His eyes fill as thoughts of his new friend’s betrayal wash over and the painting draws his eyes again.

“I’m sorry Alex,” Quinn says quietly.

Monica nearly passes the gallery on her way to see their friends when Alex’s shirt first catches her eye. She halts and shifts backwards until she sees the painting and stops. It’s a female figure bent forward reaching for her toes. The abstract form of her body in swirls of orange and reds is cradled by a man swathed in blues and purple. Oh my God! That’s me. That’s us, stretching. It can’t be. He’s...

She struggles for air as the tears swell, and she can already feel him. As she stands there, not crossing the threshold, the two men watch her. When her eyes finally land on Quinn, electricity fills the room. She can only see him and the deep tan that backdrops the pale oceany eyes reaching for her. A warm drop gently slides down her cheekbone as her breathing syncs with his. His lips move slightly hinting at words that he can’t find, and she struggles not to run into his arms.

Alex’s discomfort is audible as he clears his clogged throat to rattle her attention to his worried eyes. She steps in and touches his hand briefly. “I’ll be outside,” she says, turning without another glance at Quinn.

Her feet move quick as her thoughts try to keep up. What are they doing? Alex is gonna hit him. I can’t believe he’s here. What are the odds? Did he know we’d be here? No. Maybe he moved here. That painting was him and I together. Would Alex know that? It’s pretty abstract. Fuck! This can’t be happening. Before she knows it, she’s at the other end of the mall near the parking lot. She settles on a bench to wait for the world to stop crumbling around her. 




AUTHOR BIO:   

I'm a designer, author, wife and dog-lover living in the South Pasadena area of California. I got my BFA in Film Production from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, but my love of a good story came way before college. I remember writing my first full story in fifth grade on a typewriter. I cut and pasted it into a book, complete with cardboard cover and taped binding. Things have changed a lot since then. With the magnificent digital age I can produce books and give them to the world without a sticky mess.

In college numerous instructors and peers praised my dialogue pushed me to hone my storytelling skills. Of course the need to cut and paste was still there, so I went into the world of Production Design and Art Direction for films and television. It gave me the ability to connect design to storytelling in a way that no other career can. The past 18 years have spun a unique perspective on visually emotional tales of relationships and the thread that ties all things together. Now I'm shifting focus on the driving force that brought me here... stories. I hope that I can share a unique perspective on life, love and the pursuit in all of the above.
