Book Spotlight: About Last Summer

Title: About Last Summer

Author: Patricia B. Tighe

Genre: YA Romance

Pretend to be from Spain? Act like she can barely speak English? Sure, why not? It wouldn’t be the first time Gabby Vega had agreed to a challenge from her best friend, Kenzie. Besides, it’s only for a week of vacation with Kenzie’s cousins. Gabby will prove to Kenzie she can keep up the fake identity for the whole trip—that she’s not a quitter.

There’s just one major surprise. Noah Jernigan is also staying with Kenzie’s cousins. Noah, the boy she fell in love with at drama camp last summer and the boy she had to dump when it was over. The boy who knows who she really is.

Noah can’t believe it when Gabby appears at the Bryson’s vacation home in the New Mexico mountains. He hasn’t seen her in a year. It practically took that long just to get over her. And now she’s Gabriela from Spain? All he wants is to get as far away as he can. Or maybe the exact opposite. Stick as close to her as possible and find out what the heck happened last summer. And definitely get some payback.

Now Gabby has to keep Noah at arm’s length as she pretends to be Gabriela. She doesn’t want to answer his questions or rehash last summer. Because one thing is clear—the more time she spends with Noah, the more she’s in danger of falling for him all over again.

Book Review The Color of Love

51016500_kindle-ready-front-cover-jpeg_6233155Title: The Color of Love

Author: Ty Mitchell

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Daisy, a struggling artist working as a bartender in Los Angeles, wants to use Mike’s connections in the art world.

Mike, not accustomed to rejection, wants to use Daisy to prove to his friends that he is man enough for the ultimate conquest.

So when Mike cozies up to Daisy, she doesn’t reject his advances. But both are surprised when ulterior motives fall by the wayside, and they find themselves entangled in feelings they never expected. Daisy must decide where her heart is leading her—and if she wants to follow.

A typical love story…or so you might think. But Daisy and Mike are both rather complex characters, and that makes this book more than worth it. The writing flowed nicely, and it was easy to connect with the characters.

About the Book

el_iwontsayiminloveTitle: I Won’t Say (I’m in Love)

Author: Evee Lamb

Genre: Contemporary Romance / Erotica

After being stuck in a dead end relationship with her abusive ex-boyfriend, Zelda wants to say goodbye to relationships and say hello to no-strings sex. Preferably with a man who owns a lingerie collection larger than her own. So when Pytor Valentine pings into her inbox after Zelda decides to navigate the world of online dating, Zelda thinks she’s found the perfect man. He’s everything should could as for: handsome, well-read, owns an extensive collection of lingerie, and is looking for unattached sex.

But after seeing Pytor wrapped up in silk, all of his hard muscles and sharp curves trimmed with lace, Zelda isn’t sure one night of white hot passion is enough. But with Derek muscling his way back into her life and Pytor not looking for a relationship, Zelda doesn’t know if she’ll ever get more than sex.

If Zelda wants to survive with her heart in tack, she can’t fall in love. Too bad she’s pretty sure she already is.

Guest Post Chicks Dig the Accent

Guest Post: Top Five Things To Give to Molly for her Birthday

Hello, my name is Roxanne D. Howard, and I write contemporary erotic romance. Today I’d like to discuss the top five things I’d give to my character, Molly Ivers, for her birthday. Molly is the heroine of my newest release with Loose Id Publishing, Chicks Dig the Accent. Art below by Bianca Duarte.

  1. A long day at the spa – Molly is on the verge of graduating with her master’s degree in anthropology. She’s spent the last two years as a library rat and serious student in addition to her job, and while men have come and gone in her life, girlfriend needs a serious chill-out day and would benefit from soothing music, stones on her back, and a deep tissue massage. She’s earned it!
  2. A small sculpture – Molly’s job outside of school is an exhibitions archivist at the local museum. She won an internship at the Musee D’Orsay in Paris, and part of her daily work is to restore ancient artifacts and to prepare special exhibits for certain times of the year. She has a deep love of the past and all things historical. I’d love to give her a small sculpture she can stow away in her suitcase for when she leaves for France.
  3. A big box of Godiva chocolate – Molly adores Girl’s Night Out and hanging with her BFF Nell. She enjoys a good Veg Fest, and sometimes proper chocolate is just what the doctor ordered.
  4. An Impressionist art print – Molly adores Claude Monet, and especially with her upcoming trip to Paris, she’d do well with a nice, framed art print from the Impressionist period.
  5. A sexy piece of lingerie – Molly is a feminist and would never buy herself something naughty without a bit of persuading or friendly pestering. Now that her old flame and friend, Evan Castle, is sniffing around, she has more reason than ever to want to wear one. She’s acquired a life coach, who is helping her let her hair down a little more and preparing her for Paris. I think trying something new like lingerie would help her confidence and throw some spiciness into her sex life.

Character Interview One Night with Hemsworth

onenighthemsworth

Character interview with Cole from One Night with Hemsworth

 Q. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
A. I’ll save you the sob story and just give you the basics. My name’s Cole and I’m a twenty-seven-year-old divorcee with a seven-year-old kid and a bitch of an ex-wife.

Q. Describe yourself using one word.
A. Broken.

Q. Describe your perfect girl.
A. Someone who doesn’t want anything too serious. A one-night only type of girl. After my marriage, I’m not interested in another relationship. No one out there is going to be my ‘one’—I’ve already come to terms with that fact.

Q. What are your worst attributes?
A. Whoa. This could be a long list. But the worst? Probably my short temper. Okay, definitely my short temper.

Q. What are your best attributes?
A. I’m not sure I have any of those. None that I can see anyway. I’m a good father when my ex lets me see my kid, but that’s about it.

Q. What do you do for fun?
A. Hang out with my son, Cody. He means the world to me.

About the Book

One Night with Hemsworth1Title: One Night with Hemsworth

Author: Eden Finley

Genre: Romance

Cole Turner’s ex-wife is getting remarried. No amount of alcohol can drown that out, but taking home the hot brunette at the bar is a good enough distraction. That’s all Paige is meant to be—a distraction.

Paige Minor is too busy studying for her law degree and getting over a bad breakup to care about finding another boyfriend. All she wants is one night of careless fun with a complete stranger. Cole seems like the perfect candidate.

When Cole goes to pick up his son from his ex’s perfect house, with her perfect fiancé, and perfect new life, the last person he expects to see is Paige. She definitely shouldn’t be the one opening the door. As he stares at the person who was in his bed less than twenty-four hours earlier, a single thought occurs to him: I just slept with my ex’s new stepdaughter.

**********
One Night with Hemsworth is the first book in a series, but can be read as a standalone.

Author Bio

Eden Finely grew up near Brisbane in Qld, Australia. She’s a romance/erotica author by day, and Batman at night …
Okay, I’m not Batman, but I feel like I am. I have a cool secret name and everything.
I have several Young Adult works published under my real name. For this reason, I chose a pen name to write for this genre to keep them separate. Well that, and I don’t want my mother to read Eden’s books. Seriously, how freaking awkward would that be?

I’m a lover of reading and writing anything that involves romance, contemporary, paranormal, suspense, and YA. If I’m not spending time with my family, chances are I’ll have my laptop or kindle in my hand.
