“Their Bond through Jade” 99c this week or FREE for KU subscribers

Happy Wednesday everyone.
The publisher pulled the stories from retailers quicker than I expected, so there won’t be any more snippets from the Australian Sports Stars Series until I made a decision what to do with the stories.
I know I have shared from “Their Bond through Jade” before, but the book’s on special this week and I’d like to share a teaser from on of my favourite scene.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

After he disconnected the call, he opened the pack of chips and went back to the lounge room. His mouth edged up as he stared at the two camping chairs and the foldout table in the middle of the big room. It looked odd and reminded him that he had to buy some furniture sooner rather than later. He sat on the old camping chair, crossed his legs as he leaned back, and thought of Tiffany. His gaze drifted across the lake to the Remarkables, the mountain range along the shore. A sense of contentment spread through him.
You’re about the luckiest man in this world.
He fidgeted in the chair as he took a little box out of his pocket. With a flick of his thumb, he opened it and looked at the necklace in front of him. Carefully, he pulled the pikorua out of the small box and ran the necklace through his fingers. He’d come up with the idea when he’d rushed through the airport and saw the duty free shops. It hadn’t taken him long to figure out what to get her. The jade pikorua was a twist symbolising the strength of the bond between two people, and Mat was certain that there was something between Tiffany and him. He’d make sure to mail it the next day.
He reached over to the small camping table for his phone. Her number was already stored on the speed dial … and she answered after one ring. The relief at hearing her voice gave him an immediate lift.

BLURB:

When Tiffany Cahill opens the door to the police, memories flood her mind of the previous year and a relationship gone bad. Frightened, she calls her friend, Steve, for help, but instead a stranger answers the phone. Little does Tiffany know how much this New Zealander is going to impact her life, especially after she is assaulted only a few hours later.
Mat Apanui, the owner of a helicopter tour company in New Zealand, can’t ignore the worry in Tiffany’s voice when he answers Steve’s phone. Before he knows it, he is spending most of his business trip to Melbourne with her. Desperate to keep her safe after an attack, he invites her to stay with him in Queenstown, NZ.
With her safety at risk, how will Tiffany overcome her reservations and trust the sexy stranger enough to fly across the Tasman Sea?

 “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.

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I hope you liked the snippets of how Oliver and Tamara met. For the next few weeks I’d like to introduce you to Markus and Sarah, the 3rd couple in the Australian Sports Stars series.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

Although sure he had the rings, panic rose within Markus as he quickly checked his pockets to retrieve the small box. “Yes, all good.”
“Okay,” Oliver said. “See you in five.”
Markus hung up and smiled at Tyson, who was pacing up and down the small room. “Where the hell is he?”
“Wouldn’t say.”
“What do you mean he wouldn’t say?” Tyson stared at Markus. “You’ve got the rings, right?” Markus nodded. He had known Tyson and Oliver for most of his life, since before school. They’d played footy every Saturday and later on during their teenage years hung out together afterwards as well. Yet, after watching a game of soccer, Markus changed sports, and a year later, after spending a few months in the U.S., Oliver had switched to baseball. The youngest of the trio had stayed with football and was one of the most regarded players in the Australian Football League. Yet, their friendship had remained as strong as the first years and nowadays they caught up on Saturdays to watch cricket or motor racing.
Oliver came into the room. “Sorry for that.”
“You will be. Trust me, I’ll think of something to muck up your wedding day too.”
Oliver snorted, but didn’t reply. There was a gentle knock at the door and the minister opened the door. “Ready?”
The guys looked at each other and nodded in unison.

BLURB:

Markus DeLeon and Sarah Winter’s lives couldn’t be more different…

After three years away as the goalkeeper for an English soccer club, Markus has been happy to be back in Australia. He’d missed his family and friends, including Sarah. He’s known her since childhood, and often protected her from the teasing of other children and the troubling consequences of a broken home.

When they attend their friends’ wedding, a new light is cast on their friendship…

Sarah is fresh out of a bad relationship, and Markus has always been the one she can confide in. Maybe it’s the magic of the wedding—or how stunning he looks in a tux—but the attraction between them intensifies in ways they’d never imagined.

But sometimes when risking what you have, you might lose everything…

Following a passionate encounter, Markus isn’t sure how to handle this new aspect of his relationship with Sarah, and literally flees the scene for the coast. Sarah is unsure how to react to his sudden departure, but is soon knocked off course by misunderstandings and a frightening family emergency.

Markus realises his mistake and wants to make things right, but he also faces obstacles. He’s been offered an exciting new job, and an attractive newcomer to the neighbourhood is eager to claim his attention, though the last thing Markus needs is another confusing relationship.

Can Sarah and Markus face the fear and doubt—and the potential loss of their lifelong friendship—to give their love a chance?

Today’s Hook:

Markus DeLeon stood in front of Tyson and stared at him. The guy looked good in a tuxedo. A smile tugged at his lips, though, when he saw Ty’s hair. Markus cocked a questioning brow. “The hair?”
Tyson instantly raked his hand through it to mess it up a bit. “Grandma Hazel,” he said through gritted teeth.
Markus laughed. “Did I just see an eye twitch?” “Oh man, give me a break here, okay.” Tyson looked away. “And where the hell is Oliver?”
Markus tried his best not to laugh, but failed miserably. He’d known his friend for over twenty years, and Ty’s eye twitch was enough proof for him that his friend was beyond nervous. He couldn’t remember seeing Ty so tense in…well, ever. Not even before any of his important football games. Then again, it wasn’t every day that one got married to a gorgeous girl. And despite Katie’s best efforts to keep it a low key event, the media was present already outside the church. Grabbing his phone, Markus flicked through a few names and dialled Oliver’s number.
“Where are you?”
“Give me five minutes.”
“The groom’s nervous.”
Oliver let out a bark of laughter. “It’s his wedding day. Yeah, I’d be nervous too. Do you have the rings? Katie will kill you, if you haven’t.”

Happy Wednesday everyone. I’ve decided to move on to another book I’d like to share with you. It’s an older one, the second book in my Australian Sports Stars Series. “Let Me Love You” is Oliver’s story. ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

“Who said I’m interested?”
That seemed to throw him somewhat. Eyes wide open, he stared at her. It made her smile.
He raked his hand through his hair. “Sure? I could show you Melbourne’s favourite sights.”
Now she had to laugh. “I’m sure you could.” “Damn that Erik. I need to have a good word with him on Thursday.”
“No,” she nearly screamed. “You can’t tell him.”
Trouble with her uncle was the last thing she wanted, the gossip would flow right back to her parents and then she’d be treated like a teenager being warned to stay away from the bad boys. She sighed. Her parents had let her move to Melbourne, but she knew they worried. Stories about her spending time with one of the baseball players was the last thing she needed them to hear. Then she felt his hand under her chin, and with a soft touch of his finger, he lifted her head. Meeting his gaze, her whole body was on alert. But he didn’t say anything. Studying her face, he stood there as a long silence engulfed them both.
“You’re tense,” he said matter-of-factly.
Tense wasn’t the word for what she was. She was beyond tense. Strung like an archery bow was more like it. But he was like forbidden fruit.

BLURB:

Oliver Dempsey, pitcher for a Melbourne baseball club, loves the women, and they love him…
But he keeps them at an arm’s length, and when he meets Tamara, he’s unprepared for the attraction he feels for her. Told by his coach that she’s off limits, only draws him in more.

Tamara Amis moved to Melbourne to find some distance between her past and herself…
With the help of her uncle, the coach of a Melbourne baseball club, she quickly finds a job, and a place to live. Yet, one meeting with the handsome pitcher stirs unexpected emotions that threaten to overwhelm her.

It’s Oliver’s injury that brings them together, but as they find out about each other’s pasts, how can they be ready to share a future?

Today’s Hook:

He’s trouble! They were the last words she’d wanted to hear, especially as she’d run into Oliver twice afterwards. She tried so hard to avoid him, no wonder he thought she was a bitch. And a challenge. Tamara let out a long, slow breath before she replied, “Yes, Erik warned me about you.”
His eyebrows shot up. “I’m a nice guy!” he reasoned.
Another smile tugged at her lips. “Yes, although according to my uncle, too nice at times.”
Oliver shook his head. “Wanna join me for a drink?” he asked, his voice husky.
It sent shivers down her spine. Yes! she thought, but heard herself say, “Thank you for the invite, but I’m honestly very tired. Everything in my life’s kind of new at the moment, and it’s draining to adjust.”
His eyes searched hers. “I knew you could be nice,” he said with a big smirk on his face. “Will you take a raincheck?”
Shaking her head, she said, “No thanks. I’d rather not.”
“Because of Erik?”
“That too.”
He stepped closer, and everything inside her tensed. As much as her body had enjoyed the previous five minutes, in the end the urge to step back won. She heaved a big sigh.
“You need to give me a chance,” he whispered.
“Who said I’m interested?”

Today’s Hook:

How dare he?
First, she was a challenge, now she was jumpy? “I am not jumpy,” she replied as calmly as possible.
Meeting her gaze dead on, he let out a long breath. “Look, I’m not sure what Coach Becker’s told you about me, but I’m not a bad person.”
The fact that he’d thought her defiance was about him made her smile.
Tilting his head, he grinned. “Well, whatta ya know. You should do that more often. It suits you.”
“Oliver,” she emphasised his name. “My uncle has not said a word about you. You’re giving yourself too much credit.”
“Why the hostility? I saw it before, you can be  nice.”
She looked away, trying to focus on something in the distance, anything to avoid looking into his eyes. She watched a couple taking their shoes off to dip their toes into the water. Tamara sighed, now staring at her feet, because she knew if she met his gaze, she could so easily melt into those eyes. A little chuckle escaped her. Of course, her uncle had warned her about Oliver.
“Stay away from him. He’s trouble,” he’d said. Right after telling her what a great talent Oliver had and how much he wished Oliver to be less loyal to Australia so he could make it big in the States. Apparently, Oliver wanted none of it.
“Why,” she’d asked. The obvious question.
“Women love him and he loves them. And as soon as he’s had enough of them, he throws them away.”
She’d expected an answer referring to Oliver’s loyalty to Australia and wasn’t sure what to make of her uncle’s reply. Her scars were still fresh, but with her move to Melbourne, she had promised herself to open up again. That day she’d seen Oliver coming off the field her whole body had responded—his eyes, the muscles under his tight shirt, his smile, and the sound of his voice. She’d nearly melted away right there next to her uncle. Tamara wasn’t looking for another marriage, but she missed a man’s hand on her skin. The feeling of being touched and caressed. She missed being hugged and ached for the simple feeling of having someone around her. But how could she even have these thoughts, these cravings without cheating on Jason?

Today’s Hook:

Tamara startled when she heard a voice behind her call her name. With the noise of the waves, and the people around her, she didn’t recognise it and instinctively walked faster, her eyes fixed on her path ahead. Focussing on the buildings in front of her, she quickened her steps.
“Hey!”  
Heaving a big sigh, she stopped. Shoulders sagging, she knew he’d followed her. She let that thought sink in for a moment before she turned around. Had she forgotten something? Or was he following her to apologise? Her heart ached, and she thought of Jason. Although no man would ever be able to take his place, deep inside she was afraid of being alone for the rest of her life. Tamara watched Oliver coming closer. Her gaze was drawn to his lean body, his long legs, covered by faded jeans, moving swiftly along the beach. Only a few seconds later, Oliver was by her side.
“Bout time.”
Damn, he had a way to annoy her. With her bubble burst, she put her hands on her hips. “I don’t usually respond to hey.”
He cocked a brow. “I did call your name first. I’ve noticed you’re a bit jumpy.”

Today’s Hook:

Patting Oliver’s shoulder, he (Markus) asked, “How are you going with the girl from the other weekend?”
He shook his head. “Don’t remind me. I have a feeling she expected baseball to be a lucrative sport. Once she found out it isn’t, she was gone.”
Markus laughed, but Oliver noticed his friend was still staring at Tamara. “You’re quite smitten with her, aren’t you?” he said. Markus shook his head. “Nope. Intrigued, but  not smitten.”
Oliver was, though. And it irked him. She wasn’t his type. His type of woman was drawn to him, was attracted to him, and looked sensational. Tamara was different. Yes, she looked good, and as he quickly stole another look, he admitted she had a nice behind as well. Yet somehow, there was something about her he could not place. Something about her grabbed him. It confused the hell out of him to find himself drawn to her. Shaking his head, he followed Markus to the pub across the road, still wondering whether it was because his coach not only asked him to stay away from her, but also told him she was off limits.
Off limits?
They weren’t words he was familiar with. He’d asked why and the simple answer was she had a hell of a year. He didn’t get any more details. Off limits his ass.
“Mate, I need to do something. Ty will be here in a sec. I’ll catch up with you tomorrow.”
Not waiting for a reply, he left Markus standing at the door. There was something he had to do.

Today’s Hook:

That was one reason, all right, but the other reason was her behaviour the other day. The panic in her eyes, the same panic he thought he’d seen on her face when Markus had held out his hand as he’d introduced himself. Not to mention his coach’s stern warning to stay away from her.
So what had made her come back? Was it really Markus?
Frowning, he shook his head. “No, that’s not it,” he finally replied. “But you should’ve seen her eyes last week,” he said more to himself than to Markus.
“Oh, I saw them just then,” his friend replied with a little chuckle.
“You’re such an ass, man.”
“What? You said, I should’ve seen her eyes. I did. They’re beautiful. I mean like…”
But he never finished his sentence, and as Oliver looked after Tamara, the sudden silence, broken only by the sound of the waves of Port Phillip Bay,  gave him a shiver.
“What did you do to her?” Markus asked suddenly.
He shrugged, not willing to admit to his friend that she occupied his mind far more that he liked. “She’s screwed, mate. Coach Becker told me she’s off limits, but man, I tell ya, she’s screwed.”

Today’s Hook:

Tamara and Markus both stared at him, and he shrugged his shoulder. “What?”
Markus lifted an eyebrow. “I seem to be missing something here.”
Tamara placed a hand on his arm. “It’s okay. I’ve been…let’s say…” She hesitated. “A bitch?” Oliver helped, but he regretted it straight away.
“I certainly have not!” she retorted before he could retract his words.
Markus had offered him the perfect chance to spend more time with her, and here he was behaving like an idiot. He tried to shake off this odd reaction inside him.
“Challenge might have been the wrong word,” he finally said.  
She smiled at him and removed her hand from Markus’ arm. “Perhaps another time, but thanks for the invite. Do you play baseball?”
Markus shook his head. “Nope. Soccer.”
Then she turned and walked off. Again. Hands on hips, Oliver watched her making her way to the pier. “Can you believe this woman?”
When he didn’t get a reply, he looked at his friend. Markus was watching her as well, but with a lovestruck smile on his face. “Back off, mate. She’s trouble!”
