Cover Reveal button

cantgohome3-2

Book: Can’t Go Home

Author: Angelisa Stone

Genre: New Adult

Release Date: September 26, 2013

Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Synopsis

Everyone has secrets; secrets meant to be kept—hidden away where nobody can discover the truth. Adrian O’Donnell (aka: Dre Donley) is no exception. Dre spins tales and half-truths like it’s his job, keeping the reality of his past buried deep within each lie he fabricates. On the other hand, Kathryn Howell is the exception to the rule. She’s a straight-shooter, a tell-it-like-it-is, no filter kind of girl.

Kathryn’s honesty and straightforwardness is the ultimate turn on for a guy like Dre. He’s never met someone so sincere, so full of truth and innocence. Their chemistry is unavoidable, their connection, magnetic. When Dre sets out to make Kathryn fall for him, he doesn’t realize the grave mistake he’s making. Kathryn’s strength and convictions do not falter, even for an irresistible man like Dre. When his past resurfaces, and the lies come tumbling forth, Kathryn must decide if his deceit and betrayal can be forgiven or if the damage is irreparable. Will the truth ultimately destroy the relationship that neither one of them could deny or even attempt to resist?

***This novel is for mature readers only, due to language and sexual content.***

Who is Angelisa Stone?

Angelisa Stone is a typical Midwestern wife and mom, frazzled by parenting and housework, and overwhelmed with sports schedules, doctor appointments, and three-dimensional creative projects due “tomorrow morning.” Angelisa dreams of white sandy beaches, clear-blue waters, and Midori coladas in hand, but realizes that her loving husband and four not-so-perfect children are her real dreams-come-true. Writing and reading are her passions, and she hopes (and prays with her fingers tightly crossed) that readers will find enjoyment and escape through her words and characters.

Breaking Angelina 1.5

Powerless to silence the voices in her head, Angelina obeys their every command, even if it means ruining her college career, swindling money from her friends, or kidnapping and killing a siren so she can brew a love potion to ensnare the man she’s crushed on since childhood.

The Hunter, a man-wolf-hawk chimera, drowns the memories of his murdered family in liquor. A tracker for hire, an honorable man who has misplaced his honor, a twisted soul with no heart left to care.

…until Angelina hires the Hunter to help her track down a siren and wakes him from his drunken stupor. What will it take to set them both free?

BA-quote2

Taking Chances 2.0

Someone — or something — vandalized Jason’s new shop. Smashed windows, a broken cash register, damaged merchandise are strewn across the floor, but the culprit left the money.

The evidence: bloody bear prints larger than any bear Jason’s seen, black ooze that can eat the flesh from bones, and a missing employee.

Bears don’t wander into busy shopping districts, turn off security alarms, and break into stores. When more people go missing, Jason and Emma realize the cops aren’t up to handling the situation.

Something’s going wrong in the paranormal world. Can Jason and Emma fix things before someone else gets hurt?

998852_185592494951011_614230789_nJules Hendricks has had a string of bad “firsts.”

 Embarrassing first kiss. Traumatic first date. An obsessive first boyfriend she can’t understand.

It’s taken her years but she’s finally able to leave her small town life behind for a new start as a freshmen at UW- Madison. For Jules this chance to be independent and rebuild her life is an opportunity she won’t ever let anyone take from her again. She’s determined to make something of herself without a man by her side, in front, behind or anywhere near her.

Reid “Pax” Paxton is the star quarterback for the UW Badgers. His brush with death makes him understand how precious life is, and how important it is to take life by the horns, unafraid. Jules knows he’s dangerous for her. Dark hair. Smoldering eyes. Killer smile. That dimple. That body. Those arms. Pax is everything she’s trying to run away from, but she can’t help coming back for more. Slowly he begins to show a life together can be more than just a dream. It can be their reality. The truth about reality is it’s not always sunshine and butterflies.

Sometimes it’s a wasteland.

Sometimes secrets can’t stay buried.

Sometimes your past will find a way to hunt you down.

**Warning: the contents of this book are intended for readers 18+ and older due to explicit adult situations.**

            “Do I make you nervous?” His husky drawl drips like chocolate covering a ripe, round strawberry. Does he make me nervous? Does a simmering volcano make an ant nervous?

            I swallow. “Nervous? I’m not nervous,” I babble, refusing to look at him. I’m in physical pain. What’s that thing I do where I take in air, and then let it out? Oh yeah, breathing. I need to do that.

            Like right now.

            I make a strangled sound and inhale through my nostrils, taking in the smoky air like a ravenous puppy finding milk. Instantly I feel Pax’s heat next to me. Soon I’ll be immersed in it, wrapped in it.

            Wrapped around him.

            So does that make me nervous? Only a hundred kinds of nervous.

            “Time to begin!” Cade yells, as he jogs back to Pax and I, flashing his pearly whites. He pounds Pax on the back. “Don’t drop the ball,” he grins.

            “As if I ever do.”

            Cade turns to me. I see the second he registers my cleavage is exposed to the world. His eyes appraise me slowly. He gives me an appreciative grin. “Well, hello there.”

            “Hi,” I reply. “Um, should we start now?” I don’t mean to be rude, but I’m a second away from vomiting every cell inside me, and call me crazy, but I’d prefer not to start off my year known as the Vomiter.

            “Yes,” Pax glares at Cade. “Let’s start.” He inserts himself between us, blocking Cade’s view of me. His firm, half naked body is next to my face. Pax’s musky cologne combined with a sweaty scent unique to him assails my nostrils until my senses are reeling out of control.

            Cade chuckles, looking amused. I want to glare at him. I don’t find anything amusing about this. “Ready when you are.”

            Pax turns to me, his emerald eyes dark pools in the sunlight. This close I see every glorious inch of him, from the tiny stubbles of black hair covering the lower part of his face to the rippling six pack decorating his stomach like a tattoo. I don’t dare look any lower. My pulse skitters. I forget to breathe. Something hard and hot unfurls in my belly. Unable to tear my gaze from him I watch helpless as his mouth drifts closer, until he’ so close his breath mingles with mine.

            “Ride me.”

Kiss Me in Paris by Dmytry Karpov and Kimberly Kimrade

KMiP 99cent Sale Banner

It was everything I expected, and more!

I was lost in the story of Cade and Winter from the very beginning. They  captured my heart as they captured each other’s. Too often authors take you  through the typical boy meets girl, tragic  separation, and joyful reunion…the  end. With Kiss Me in Paris I found a beautiful story where friendship developed before the realization that love looms in their future. I was allowed to live  Paris through their adventures, see their relationship grow, and watch them fall  in love through the telling of their story through two sets of  eyes.

This  unique viewpoint is what endeared this novel to me and made me a true follower  of this round the globe series! I am so excited about the places I’ll travel and  the people I’ll meet along the way!

The team of  Kimberly Kinrade and  Dmytry Karpov is a winning combination, making writing  magic along the way!

About Kiss Me in Paris

Kiss Me in Paris by Karpov KinradeNo one knows my secret. Ever since high school, ever since I started living in fear, no one has known the true me. But then I met him, and I couldn’t hide anymore.

He became my hero, saving me from the villain of my past. He became my friend, his smile a blanket of warmth. And he scared me. Because he, this beautiful man, he might become more. Then he’d see the real me, and I couldn’t let that happen.

My name is Winter, and what I desire most I can’t have.

Flashes of the night I was drugged rush back to me. His strong arms carrying me through the streets of Paris. The feel of his heart beating as my head rested against his chest. The soft press of his lips against my forehead when he thought I was asleep.

Oh shit. I’m falling for the cowboy. Cade.

But we can’t be anything more. He has his own secrets. His own darkness he keeps hidden, like the letter he keeps with him everywhere he goes.

The letter he refuses to open.

Becoming Invisible (The Alaskan Heart Saga) by Tiffany Carmouche’

Cover

Becoming Invisible is the third book The Alaskan Heart Saga, a Contemporary New Adult Series about finding unexpected love and a woman’s fight for survival.

Passion. ..Obsession. ..Love…Loss.

When fire consumes the Carlisle’s home and an obsessed serial killer continues to hunt Nicole and her family, Dylan and Bradley realize the only way to keep them alive is to help them become… invisible.

https://www.facebook.com/events/394795043973368/ release party

Tiffany Carmouche’ has mastered the art of the suspenseful thriller! Had my husband and German Shepherd not been sitting here as I read the last of Becoming Invisible tonight, I never would have been able to finish it!

The rich blend of love and romance combined with “the fear of breathing” tension had me captivated from the first words. Becoming Invisible feels the culmination of The Alaskan Hearth Saga as I convinced myself that I finally know how this is really going to end midway through this book. Then I get pulled up short by another brilliant cliff-hanger that leaves me literally screaming “You have got to be kidding” when I realize this is the last page my beloved Kindle will be feeding to me.

Tiffany’s characters are so compelling, so real life that I was breathing when they breathed, loving when they loved, crying when they cried and bleeding when they bled.

I will be counting down the days, the weeks or the months until Tiffany Carmouche’ releases the next morsel of The Alaskan Heart Saga.

Getting to know author Tiffany Carmouche ~

Which six words would you use to describe yourself?

Sassy, persistent, dreamer, romantic, spontaneous, too trusting (okay that is seven opps)

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

Me? I’m a single mother… a survivor… a dreamer… a hopeless romantic… and an adventurer…

Best Selling Author Tiffany Carmouche has been given the title, The Queen of The Cliffhanger and Best Unknown Author You Need to Discover. When Tiffany Carmouché is not writing suspenseful romance novels, you can find her sculpting, traveling, teaching, singing, dancing, escaping in music or enjoying her family.

From skydiving in Alaska to scuba diving in Hawaii, Carmouché has traveled the world seeking adventure and it is apparent in the books she writes. Her adventures include riding camels in Africa, swimming under the stars in Puerto Rico, dancing salsa in Ecuador, and walking the cobblestone roads of Assisi, Italy. She has also found fulfillment working with the disabled and orphans in Argentina and Mexico. Her most cherished moments, however, have been watching her two beautiful daughters grow and strive to accomplish their own dreams.

Despite all of these amazing experiences, she has survived many struggles. There was a time she felt defeated, but now she is recommitted to savoring experiences both in the novels she writes and in the life she lives each day. Her secret hope is that anyone who is struggling will realize there is a light at the end of the tunnel and no matter how hard the fight, no matter how many times they have been knocked down, it is always worth staggering up to their feet and learning to breathe again.

Striving for Normal by B.L. Mooney

Striving for Normal Release DaySynopsis

The most intimate relationship Drew Clayborn had with a man in the last four years has been with her therapist. With a past that has left her broken and scarred, she tries to piece herself back together enough to make it through each day. Whether she’s ready or not, life brings her back among the living, and Drew needs to learn quickly how to deal with her troubled past. When the perfect opportunity presents itself to pursue her dream career, it also provides Drew her first encounter with a compelling man since her devastating breakup with the last one.

Carl Williamson is rich, powerful, and gorgeous. The desire she feels when he’s near makes it impossible not to melt into his arms. He wants Drew and will stop at nothing to have her. Carl promises to be her protector, but he brings familiar concerns to the surface.

Dennis Brooks is a nice guy her best friend thinks would be her perfect match. He’s strong, honest, and sexy as hell, and he makes her smile in a way no one else can. Drew feels safe and secure with him, but she isn’t certain he is strong enough to handle Drew and give her what she thinks she needs in a relationship.

When Drew’s demanding, controlling ex comes back to stake his claim on her, the carefully crafted world she built for herself is turned upside down. Does she need a powerful man like Carl to help her? Will Dennis step up and be the man she needs? Or does she finally become strong enough to deal with her past on her own? Who is the true hero in her quest of striving for normal?

Meet the Author

B.L. Mooney started writing when the voices and storylines in her head ran out of room. They were getting too cramped and neither B.L. nor the characters could take it anymore, so she did the only thing she could do—she made room. She always knew she wanted to write, but vowed to make time for it later. Now that she’s made time for writing, most everything else falls to the wayside. That seems to suit the characters that keep popping up just fine.

B.L. lives in the Midwest and her other talents include in-demand cookies, a very dry sense of humor, and stealth eavesdropping. Some mannerisms, attitudes, or twists come from random sentences picked up while passing by strangers. So speak up the next time you have something to gossip about. You never know, it may just end up on the pages of the next book you read.

Talking Dirty With the Player by Jackie Ashenden

VBT_TalkingDirtyWithThePlayer_Banner

It is my pleasure to interview Jackie Ashenden, author of Talking Dirty With the Player. Welcome to Room With Books, Jackie!

First let me give you a little background on Jackie.

Jackie Coates

Jackie has been writing fiction since she was eleven years old. Mild mannered fantasy/SF/pseudo-literary writer by day, obsessive romance writer by night, she used to balance her writing with the more serious job of librarianship until a chance meeting with another romance writer prompted her to throw off the shackles of her day job and devote herself to the true love of her heart – writing romance. She particularly likes to write emotional stories with alpha heroes who’ve just got the world to their liking only to have it blown wide apart by their kick-ass heroines.

She lives in Auckland, New Zealand with her husband, the inimitable Dr Jax, two kids, two cats and some guppies (possibly dead guppies by the time you read this). When she’s not torturing alpha males and their stroppy heroines, she can be found drinking chocolate martinis, reading anything she can lay her hands on, posting random crap on her blog, or being forced to go mountain biking with her husband.

full

1.  Tell me a little about Talking Dirty With the Player and what inspired you to write it?

When I sold my first book to Entangled – Talking Dirty with the CEO – I was asked to make it a series. My editor suggested maybe a sports hero – much to my annoyance since I don’t like sport much!  But then I thought about it and as the books are all set in Auckland, New Zealand, I decided I could do a rugby player since that’s our national game. Plus Judith, the heroine, didn’t know anything about rugby either which made Caleb perfect for her. 

2.  When you start writing do you have the story outlined or do your characters dictate what will happen?

Nope, I never know what’s going to happen. The characters totally take the ball and run with it (see what I did there?? Rugby…ahem…even if it’s to somewhere I don’t want them to go!

3.  Have you ever had arguments with your characters and who usually wins?

Sometimes I wish my heroes wouldn’t make the decisions they make. But I usually let them go for it since once I start  pulling them back the story starts to suffer (and my critique partner yells at me).

4.  What is one thing about you your readers would be surprised to know?

I can quote Star Wars, A New Hope, verbatim? Although that’s not all that surprising if you know me…

5.  If you could write with any other author who would it be any why?

I would write with my critique partner, Maisey Yates. Because we have similar processes and enjoy messing with the heads of our characters.

6.  When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I totally wanted to be a writer. It’s true. I did.

7.  When you decide to write, what prompted you to start?

I’ve been writing since I was a kid (I’m not tell you how long ago that was) and I used to write romances in my spare time. I wrote about eight of them over a twelve year period (one of them was 300,000 words long!!) and as I was finishing it, I happened to meet a real live and published romance author. She encouraged me to just send something to a publisher and so I did. Took me five years to get published, but I got there in the end!

8.  What music, if any, inspires your writing?

I used to listen to music while writing when I was younger but these days I find I have to have silence. Otherwise I start writing down lyrics instead of the dialogue.  But listening to angsty music does put me in the mood to write I have to say.

Fun Facts about Jackie Ashenden:

What is your favorite breakfast?  Waffles!! Or pancakes!!

What is your favorite color?  Purple

What is your favorite movie?  Bah. I don’t have just one. Ummmm…Star Wars!

What is your dream car (details please)?  As long as I have my own personal chauffeur, I don’t care.

How can our readers find you?

Cover_TalkingDirtyWithThePlayerUp-and-coming photographer Judith Ashton is pretty sure she has everything in her life under control. That is, until a blast from the past comes back to taunt her, in the shape of Caleb Steele, her older brother’s best friend…and the man who broke her heart eight years ago. Their chemistry is combustible, but she’s been fooled once by this player, and she’s not going there again. To pro rugby player Caleb, Judith has always been his Kryptonite. But his former playboy lifestyle is the last thing she wants to be involved in. In the midst of her brother’s threats to back off, and the deal of his career sending him far away from her, he knows he’s playing with fire. And this is one game he’s going to lose.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here is an excerpt from Talking Dirty With the Player:

His smile widened and Judith had to remind herself that she was now immune to its lethal charm. Completely immune. “Oh don’t be like that,” he said. “You missed me. Admit it.”

“Yeah. Like I miss gonorrhea.”

One dark brow rose. “You’ve had gonorrhea?”

Judith sighed. He was all about the witty comeback. If that’s what you called wit. “Oh, shut up, Caleb.”

“See, this is what I’ve missed while I’ve been away. I say something then you say something, then I say something back and you end with ‘shut up, Caleb’. We always have such great, in-depth conversations.”

Still the same old Caleb. Patronizing, arrogant, and cocky as hell. They’d been friends once, a long time ago. And then more than friends. Until he’d broken her poor little teenage heart. She’d forgiven him for that, though; it had been years and years since their affair, after all.

Eight years to be exact.

Nevertheless a familiar feeling began to creep up on her. An antsy, irritated feeling. Like she’d brushed up against poison ivy. Okay, so she may have forgiven him. That didn’t mean he didn’t bug her on occasion.

 Judith swallowed her irritation and maintained her usual calm-and-in-control expression. The one that seemed to exasperate him as much as his teasing arrogance exasperated her.

 “Did you have something special you wanted to say?” she asked him in bored tones. “Or are you just here to be annoying?”

 “Actually, I’m here to shoot you. Though, being annoying is always an added bonus.”

Broken Prince by Jen Wylie

Broken Prince by Jen Wylie

Broken Prince is the second book in The Broken Ones Series by Jen Wylie. I felt I needed to read book one, Broken Aro, before I could give an thorough review, and I am sure glad I did. Without the first book of the series I would have found myself frequently scratching my head.

I love to read a book series one right after the other as I am impatient while waiting for the next book to be released in a series that I love. Broken Prince proved to be no exception, but once again, it ended too soon.

Broken Prince is full of great action and adventure as Arowyn and the survivors travel from each new encounter to the next. Their quest to get Prince back to his homeland takes this group from brushes with new magical creatures and from good to evil, but each engagement adds to the depth and development of this story.

Jen Wylie is a n incredibly talented writer and Broken Prince is a pearl of a novel! I don’t wish to provide any spoilers, but Broken Prince will have you running a broad spectrum of emotions, including impatience for more!

Bravo Jen Wylie! Broken Prince is bound to be a New Adult and Fantasy bestseller.
