#SnippetSunday “Let’s tackle the task together.” #Sundayblog #love #freeread


Happy Sunday. I’ve moved on from my Tassie story and would like to introduce you to yet another Alinta Bay couple. Jonah and Maddie.
Enjoy ♥

“Not sure why he wouldn’t be, but, yes, he’s a fine specimen of an adult.”
“May I talk to him?”
Maddie turned to look at Jonah with raised brows. He hitched a shoulder in question as well, but moved closer to the panel again.
“I’m here.”
“Thanks. Could you try to open the doors?”
Jonah cocked a brow, but before he could reply, Maddie piped up, “You do know this is sexism, right? You could have asked me that too.”
Out of all people, he had to be stuck in a lift with a person who walked the path of political correctness. Yet, Jonah remained silent, he wouldn’t dare to step into that conversation. Instead, he moved his hand to point at the doors. “Be my guest.”
There was some static noise from the panel. “Maddie, it has nothing to do with sexism but with the fact that I needed to talk to Jonah as well. It’s not just about finding out what can be done but also what your state of mind is.”
She blew out a massive sigh and slouched her shoulders. “I know you’re right and I do apologise. I just feel so helpless.”
Jonah gave her a wink. “Let’s tackle the task together.”

#MFRWHooks “Does my mother know?” #amreading #NewRelease #MFRWOrg #OneClick

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I’d like to introduce you to book 2 in the Alinta Bay series
TELL IT TO MY HEART
which is now available on AMAZON for 99c .
I hope you’ll enjoy today’s “hook”, which is in Noah’s POV.

Today’s Hook:

“Fu… Sorry, buddy. You know it’ll take you close to a week to get there this time of the year.”
He chuckled. Yes, he was aware of it. “It’s not that bad. I will need you to fly me to Anchorage and I’ll hitch a flight from there.”
“Shit. Let me check the weather forecast, and I’ll get back to you.”
“Thank you, mate. I owe you.”
“Hey, and I’m sorry about your grandma.”
“Thanks, Dean. It’s important for me to be at the funeral. She was the one who took care of me after Mum left.”
A heavy silence hung between them for a long beat until his friend picked up the conversation again. “No problems, buddy. We’ll make it work.”
“Thanks. I really appreciate it.”
He hung up, checked the weather as well, and hoped he was going to be on his way home the next day. A thought popped into his mind, and he reached for his phone again. Graham answered almost straight away.
“Sorry Graham, I’m not really sure about the time difference, but I have a quick question.”
“Shoot.”
The short answer made Noah believe it must have been some ungodly hour in Australia. “Does my mother know?”
Graham blew out a breath. “No. I’m sorry, but I haven’t tracked her down, yet.”
That surprised him. After all, the lawyer had been able to track him down in Alaska. “Isn’t she in France?”

BLURB:

Confronted with the choice to care for his friend’s family on the other side of the world or to return to Alinta Bay to be with his own newfound family, how will Noah choose?

Following the death of his grandmother, Noah Fielding returns to Alinta Bay and the first thing — or person — he finds is the next-door neighbour in his nan’s bathroom — naked no less. Still jetlagged, he doesn’t hit it off with Molly at first. Yet, over the next few weeks, as his past uncovers itself bit by bit, she becomes is anchor, his friend, and his lover.

Molly Reid had the world at her feet, happily married with a young son … until a tragic car accident took everything away from her. With her heart broken, she moves to Alinta Bay to escape the memories of the past. Her peaceful existence, however, is interrupted after a heavy storm floods her house and she temporarily moves into her recently deceased neighbour’s house next door.

When Noah’s friend and partner goes missing during a routine flight, Noah returns to Alaska to help, but will he come back for Molly?

 “This blood-pumping novel will keep the reader hooked until the very end.” InD’tale Magazine

“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book and fall in love.” (5 star review)

Mat is a sexy, tattooed New Zealander with a strong sense of family and duty and Tiffany is a woman with a past that continues to haunt her. Can Mat help her overcome her demons and move on with the next phase of her life? Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. (5 star review)

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

#SnippetSunday “Yes, it’s just the two of us” #Sundayblog #love #freeread


Happy Sunday. I’ve moved on from my Tassie story and would like to introduce you to yet another Alinta Bay couple. Jonah and Maddie.
Enjoy ♥

“Thanks. What is your name Ma’am?”
“I’m Maddie. Actually, it’s Mandika, but everyone calls me Maddie. Maddie Torres. And we’re stuck in a lift. In Alinta Bay. That’s in Victoria.”
Jonah cocked a brow, crossed his arms, and despite the situation they were in, a touch of amusement tugged at his lips.
“The two of you and nobody else?”
Jonah was certain the security guy had to hold back on his mirth as well.
Maddie’s forehead creased into a frown and she shot Jonah a glare that took all of his amusement in an instant. Focussing on the panel again, she replied, “Yes, it’s just the two of us. Isn’t that enough.”
“Apologies, Ma’am. It most certainly is.”
She rolled her eyes, but remained silent.
“Could you tell me whether the light is still on?”
She blinked, and he had to admit, he didn’t see the point to the question either. He gave her a shrug, but with a little nod encourage her to answer.
“It’s basically dark, except for a dim light.”
“Thanks,” the electronic voice said. “May I ask if Jonah is an adult?”
Turning towards him, she took him in, very slowly, and yes, it was close to awkward. “Not sure why he wouldn’t be, but yes, he’s a fine specimen of an adult.”

Title: Tempting Heat

Prequel Novella

 

About Tempting Heat:

“Finn, we don’t have to do anything here. We can—”
“Don’t you dare. I want it all. Everything.” Her voice was savage, and his blood surged at the sound of it.
Time to drop the leash.

Tom Castle ended up in the wrong apartment on the wrong day. Now a ferocious snowstorm has him trapped with his onetime crush and longtime regret, which is pretty much in line with his lifelong bad luck.

Finn Carey has no choice. Although it’s tempting to let Tom take his chances on the streets of Chicago, she doesn’t want anyone to die in a snowbank— not even the man who hurt her so badly years ago.

At first, Tom and Finn do their best to ignore each other in the close quarters. Then the power goes out, and things between them heat up as the secrets start to flow. Which will thaw first: the storm raging outside or the ice protecting their hearts?

While Tempting Heat is a novella, the rest of the books in the feisty, funny Tempt Me series are full-length novels. Each one is a standalone with plenty of heat and no cliffhangers, so slip on your fuzzy socks and get reading!

Title: Tempting Taste

Book 1

 

About Tempting Taste:

“You’re exceptionally good at talking when you put your mind to it.”
A cocksure smile slid across his face. “Oh, I’m just getting started at showing you what I’m good at.”

After a chaotic childhood, all Erik Andersson wants is quiet and stability. What a shock, then, to find himself quitting on the spot after a tornado of a woman storms his workplace and exposes the toxicity of his boss. Although Erik should be focused on locking down his next gig, he instead agrees to a wild business proposal from the beautiful chaos agent intent on upending his life.

Josie Ryan spent years chasing her mother’s approval and now fills that void by wowing clients with her buzzy PR events. So when the brooding baker with the gorgeous cakes ends up jobless, Josie leaps at the chance to prove her worth by turning his talent into an empire—assuming she can work alongside a reserved hunk who charms her with every grumble.

Keep it professional. That’s the first rule of a good partnership. Soon enough, though, Josie and Erik have dropped their defensive walls to explore the potential of their sweet-and-salty relationship. But as the business grows, their clashing definitions of success threaten their happy equilibrium. Can they resolve their differences to form the perfect fusion, or will they always be a recipe for disaster?

Tempting Taste is book 2 in Tempt Me, Sara Whitney’s hot and humorous contemporary romance series. It’s a standalone opposites-attract novel with no cliffhangers, so grab your favorite pastry and get reading!

Title: Tempting Talk

Book 2

 

About Tempting Talk:

Deejay Mabel Bowen rocks the morning airwaves, but once she signs off, she’s happy going home alone; a long-ago humiliation taught her that women in the public eye should be cautious about dating. Then she meets the Clark Kent-ish accountant overseeing the sale of her radio station and starts wondering if she should break her own “girl, don’t date him” rules.

Since he was teenager, Jake Carey has worked to lift his family out of poverty, and he’s now on the verge of a promotion that’ll secure their financial future. Why, then, is he so quick to set aside his spreadsheets whenever the gorgeous morning show host is around? After years of using work as an excuse to avoid searching for emotional connections, he’s now jumping at every chance to spend time with Mabel and her maple syrup voice.

Despite their initial reservations, Mabel and Jake move from conversations over coffee to flirty office lunches to a night out that obliterates all their previously drawn lines. Then a professional betrayal sends Mabel fleeing back to the safety of her single-girl rules. But Jake isn’t ready to give up on this once-in-a-lifetime love and sets out to balance their work/life books. Can he convince Mabel to turn up the volume on their future, or will she decide that the numbers don’t add up?

#BlogTour “The right to remain silent” by @AnyaBSummers @SDSXXTours

The Right to Remain Silent
Crescent City Kings Book 3
by Anya Summers
He never expects to find her there…
Officer Quinten Blackthorne is working undercover to bring the Rudnikov Mob Empire to its knees. He never expects to find his best friend’s baby sister, Becca, in the center of a powder keg situation at the infamous mobster’s home. With her life on the line, he does the only thing he can think of to save her – he pretends that she’s his fiancée, who knows nothing of his clandestine activities with the criminal enterprise, and stands as her stalwart protector.
Forced into marriage…
But Quinten never expects the mob boss to force them into marriage at gunpoint as a test of loyalty. Not to mention, the idea of her belonging to him isn’t unappealing, nor is he as averse to the prospect as he lets on. Becca, with her sweet curves and take no prisoners attitude, fascinates him, stirs him, and leaves him craving her submission. Yet his past is fraught with broken dreams and death, so he uses his friendship with her brother as a shield against his yearning to claim her as his own.
Resistance is futile…
However, circumstances soon compel Becca and Quinten to become the most unlikely allies in a deadly game of deception. Now they must depend on one another for survival. As they race to unlock the keys to breaking the case, will Quinten be able to maintain his hands-off policy with Becca? Or will he surrender to the earth-shattering passion and turn their marriage of convenience into the real deal?
Publisher’s Note: This steamy friends to lovers romance contains elements of power exchange. While it’s the third in the Crescent City Kings series, it can be enjoyed independently.

A high stakes wager pits an aspiring entrepreneur against a ruthless CEO in this sexy romantic comedy.

After her life falls apart, recruitment consultant Layla Patel returns home to her family in San Francisco. But in the eyes of her father, who runs a Michelin starred restaurant, she can do no wrong.
