Cover Reveal for The Summer Remains by Seth King. @givemebooksblog & @SethKingBooks




Title: The Summer Remains
Author: Seth King
 Release Date: February 14, 2015


Synopsis


Twenty-four-year-old Summer Johnson knows two things. The first is that due to an incurable and worsening medical condition, she faces a risky surgery in three months’ time that may very well end in her death. The second is that she would like to fall in love before then.

As spring sinks into her namesake season on the Florida coast, Summer decides to play the odds and download a new dating app – and after one intriguing message from a beautiful surfer named Cooper Nichols, it becomes clear that the story of what may be her last few months under the sun is about to be completely revised. All she has to do now is write something worth reading.

Tender, honest, devastating and triumphant, The Summer Remains explores a very human battle being waged in a very digital age: the search for a love that will remain beyond this temporary borrowing of bones. In an era when many feel compelled to share and re-share anything about everything, prepare to feel a love so special, you will want to hug it close and make it yours forever.

The Empire State Trilogy, Part 1
Released: October 21, 2014
Each novella is around 30k words
Anna Kirby is sick of dating. She's tired of heartbreak. Despite being smart, sexy, and funny, she's a magnet for men who don't deserve her.
A week's vacation in New York is the ultimate distraction from her most recent break-up, as well as a great place to meet a stranger and have some summer fun. But to protect her still-bruised heart, fun comes with rules. There will be no sharing stories, no swapping numbers, and no real names. Just one night of uncomplicated fun.
Super-successful serial seducer Ethan Scott has some rules of his own. He doesn't date, he doesn't stay the night, and he doesn't make any promises.
It should be a match made in heaven. But rules are made to be broken.
 A Week in New York is the first in a series of three novellas.

Review By Wendy Book Obsessed Pimpette

*** obsessed by books arc given for an honest review * * * *
ok I loved this book. I felt butterflies the whole time. Anna has just recently went through a bad break up and is given the chance to go to New York with her best friend Leah to help get over her ex. While sitting at a bar they are introduced to Ethan Stone a guy who doesn't do relationships and never takes anyone to his home, or sees them more than once, but when him and Anna meet something is different. They both agree to spend the week that Anna is in New York to just enjoy each other, no strings attached., but with chemistry like they share, a no strings attach, would seem impossible. Ethan is sexy hot, oh my I felt everything in this book. can't wait to see if they get their HEA.

About the Author

I write sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind I like to read. My books Faithful and Hopeful are stand-alone novels although there are some overlapping characters. The Empire State Series of novellas starts with A Week in New York.
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, I love all things romantic. There's not enough of it in real life so I'll settle for books and films.
I love the rain, the West Wing, London, days when you don't have to wear make-up, being alone, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
Hearing from readers is the best thing in the world so get in touch!

Release Day Blitz for Abuse by Nikki Sex @givemebooksblog @NikkiSexAuthor




Title: Abuse
Author: Nikki Sex
Publisher: Ashton Publishing Group
 Release Date: January 13, 2015


Synopsis


Bonjour, my name is André Chevalier. It has been my joy and my great honor to help those who have lost their way. Not long after I began my journey, I met two such wounded souls.

Renata Koreman, my little mouse. She came to me as a child—shy, mute, injured… broken. It took oh-so many years to start to bring her back to herself! Yet, I could not fully heal her.

Years later, Grant Wilkinson, he too fell into my hands. The ex-Army Ranger was badly disfigured and saw himself as a monster. Isolated by secrets, solitary and self-contained, his colleagues affectionately named him ‘Frosty.’ Yet, how should one behave when besieged by a lifetime of confusion and guilt?

The moment I saw him, I thought of her and I wondered. The eyes, they cannot always see clearly. And the heart? Ah, the heart can only guess at the truth. So it was that I remained uncertain.

Could the mouse and the monster heal each other?

Review by Julie Sweetheart Obsessive Pimpette

 5 of 5 stars  ·  
I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This is the first book by this author. Although this is not the first book in this series, I had no trouble reading this and didn't get lost. This is a great "Nancy drew" type book. Jolie is on her quest to help Drew. Well written and laid out. I will be going back to read the first two.
No spoilers for me. Read and enjoy!!!

Rachel Blaufeld's Redemption Cover Reveal. @rachelblaufeld





About Redemption Lane (Crossroads #1):
Sometimes the past bleeds into the future.

Bess, a wild party girl running from herself, literally falls victim to her demons when she collapses in the most unexpected of places.
Lane, a tightly wound, up-and-coming CEO who can’t seem to stop enabling his brother, doesn’t know what hit him when Bess falls at his feet and into his life.

It was a night she doesn’t remember, and one he can’t forget.

But rather than stay and help the needy college coed, Lane decides to teach his brother a long overdue lesson––a decision that later comes back to haunt him and only adds fury to the transgressions of his past he is already fleeing from.
Years later, Bess and Lane meet again. She doesn’t know him, and he doesn’t share that he knows what happened on that ill-fated night when she almost died. After all, he has a web of complicated lies from his own youth to protect.

Both are seeking salvation in the arms of others and ignoring the truth—that the only road to redemption lies in confronting your past.

When the past and present collide, is there any chance at redemption?
Release date: February 19th, 2015

Excerpt:


Olivia woke up in the big bed in the suite she shared with Dylan. She recalled their evening and how he’d carried her back to the room, ignoring the catcalls and whistles of people as they’d walked. Honestly, she’d been so exhausted she hadn’t cared.
She rolled onto her back to find his dark eyes watching her.
“Everything good?” he asked.
She didn’t blame him. She had a tendency to pull away, but she had no intention of doing so this morning. “I’m good.” She crawled closer. “Very, very good.”
She was sore in the best possible ways, a gorgeous man had gone out of his way to make her night special, and to make sure she’d come quite a few times… Yeah, she was more than good!
He smiled in obvious relief.
“So what’s on today’s agenda?” she asked.
“We have the day free. Breakfast?”
She nodded. They ended up sharing a shower, which delayed getting to breakfast, because Dylan’s definition of getting clean involved a whole lot of getting dirty first. With the hot water streaming over them and her arms braced against the wall, he still managed to snag a condom and to take her from behind, filling her up and giving her another experience she’d never forget.

Tell us a little about DARE TO TOUCH and why readers should check it out.

First, DARE TO TOUCH, as with all the DARE books, stands alone if you are coming to the series for the first time. You can read Olivia and Dylan easily and then go back and check out the other stories in the series. Because I am moving around from sibling to sibling, you can definitely find a loose connection, a revisit with siblings and favorites, along with its own story.

That said, DARE TO TOUCH, like all the books, examines how a father’s betrayal (in this case a second family no one knew about) impacts each child’s life … Olivia comes to romance reluctantly and with a lot of trepidation. Dylan knows what he wants – and he’s determined to wait her out … it’s a seductive dance set in the background of the Pro Bowl in Arizona along with life in Miami. It’s hot, it’s sexy and it’s emotional.

What inspired you to write the DARE TO LOVE series?

I knew I wanted a series with a lot of characters … and when I said that to my plotting partners, one of my brilliant friends came up with the father with another family, giving me siblings, half-siblings, betrayal, jealousy, bonding … everything I could want. Add in some sports (which I love  writing about) and family dynamics along with making the series edgier than anything I’ve written before (sexually) and I couldn’t wait to dive in.

Do you have a favorite book or author you like to recommend?
I read so much, so fast, I couldn’t possibly name them all. If I start, I’ll leave someone out  … but … here are SOME and apologies to the ones I don’t mention but do love – Kit Rocha, Shayla Black, Lexi Blake/Sophie Oak, Kelly Jamieson, Nalini Singh’s Psy series, Juliana Stone, Claudia Connor’s newest … clearly I’m a mostly erotic romance reader!

What is your guilty pleasure?
Besides reading? Chocolate!

Favorite meal?
Pizza

If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?
There’s something else besides writing? J

If you could travel through time, what time period would you visit?


I’d go to … ack. I wouldn’t. Because much as I love historical romance, I need showers and air conditioning. I was going to say Middle Ages because I loved reading those romances when I first started writing … but yeah. I think I’d have a real issue with the bathing thing.

Exclusive Excerpt:
“You okay?” he asked. She wrapped her arms around herself and stared at the sky. Ryeland followed her gaze and took in the streaks of pink and purple bruising the horizon. She rubbed her hands over her arms. “Yeah, it’s just, the sun is going down and the temperature is dropping.” “We could always get in the hot springs.” “I don’t have a suit.” “We can wear our clothes.” “I guess it wouldn’t be the first time you caught me soaking wet and fully dressed.” “Then I take that as a yes.” He jumped to his feet and pulled her up. She yelled when he scooped her into his arms and carried her to the edge. “No, I was kidding.” She whacked him and wiggled to get free. Jesus, he wished she wouldn’t wiggle like that. “And we just ate.” “Don’t care.” He jumped, and she wrapped her arms around his neck to hold on as the warm water enveloped them. She pushed away from him and they both came up sputtering. Laughing, she swiped her hair off her face and swam away. “You’re crazy.” “You think?” “Yeah, I think.” He moved closer when she stopped swimming, watching the way the water dripped down her face, making her look so sexy, so damn tempting. His cock thickened, need propelling him forward and urging him to act on what he was feeling. Her smile fell and her mouth opened slightly as his gaze dropped to her lips. He took a breath and let it out slowly as he closed the distance between them, standing so close he could feel the pounding of her heart. “You want to know what I think?” She stared into his eyes and he could almost hear her brain buzzing. She opened her mouth and closed it again. When she finally spoke, her voice was so soft, so quiet he had to strain to hear it. “Okay,” she whispered. With his heart picking up tempo, he ran his thumb over her cheek then cupped her chin. “What I think is I’d like to kiss you.” When she didn’t flinch, he leaned forward and pressed his mouth to hers. His lips moved over hers, reveling in the warmth, the softness. “Ryeland,” she whispered into his mouth. “Yeah?” he asked, barely able to think straight as she melted against him. His body tightened, pleasure racing through him. Her breath grew shallow, her chest rising and falling quickly against his. “What are we doing?” “We’re kissing.” “Friends don’t kiss.” “Friends kiss,” he murmured. “No, they don’t.” Breathing hard, he rested his forehead against hers, working to keep his shit together. “Do you want me to stop?” he asked, his voice so tortured he barely recognized it. “If you want me to stop, I will. Just tell me and I will.”
