#MFRWHooks “Echoes of the Past” #kindledeals #AmazonDeals #Romance #oneclick


Happy Wednesday everyone.
“Echoes of the Past” is still only 99c on Amazon so I thought I’d share a teaser today.
Enjoy ♥

Today’s Hook:

“It wasn’t the perfect upbringing,” he said suddenly.
She tugged a strand of hair behind her ear, trying hard not to let her emotions get the best of her.
With a shrug, he added, “But it is what it is, and I cannot change it.”
Not sure how to respond, she stayed quiet.
He placed his knife and fork on the plate as well and pushed it away. “I’ve been wondering for the last couple of days how life would’ve been if Mum and I hadn’t left. But I cannot complain. I received a good education, a great job, some good friends, and a neat little house outside London.” He looked up at her. “Life’s not always wrapped up in some fancy, colourful wrapping paper, but it’s still a gift worth treasuring.”

BLURB:

When Connor Walsh, a business lawyer in London, receives news that his estranged father is terminally ill, he returns to Fermosa Bay, a little coastal town in Australia. With the memories of his childhood years tucked away in the back of his mind, he finds his father and kindergarten friends rallying around to remind him of the past. But he’s unprepared for the growing attraction he feels for Emily, and it doesn’t take long for Connor to feel regret that his life could have been so much different.

Emily Bradshaw has waited for over twenty years to see Connor again. And although he can’t remember her, let alone their first kiss, her childhood crush is still in full swing. Eager to pick up where they left off as children, she’s determined to enjoy the short time he is in Fermosa Bay, accepting her heart will break when he returns to his life in London.

Will the echoes of the past lure him into staying in Fermosa Bay?

 “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.

 

#MFRWHooks “she felt accepted for who she had been” #amreading #books #bookrecommendation


Happy Wednesday everyone.
I started sharing snippets from my very first book “Sweet Dreams, Miss England”. I hope you liked it. I moved a little further in the story with Beth travelling to Dublin to meet new friends.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

Siobhan and Erin had only become interested in Shane because of the few movies he had made. His music from the early 1990s was unfamiliar to them.
After the initial night when Beth had found the website and had read a few postings and threads as a guest, she’d found herself on the site often reading deep into the night, forgetting all around her and disregarding time. She was intrigued by the sensibleness of most of the members, and she was impressed by the responsible approach to most of the subjects pertaining to Shane, his movies, his past and even – to some extend – his private life, which included her. Beth appreciated the way her private life was respected – there was no room for private details or any information pertaining to the two girls. For the first time she felt accepted for who she had been, for whom she was, and what she had done.

BLURB:

Sometimes we meet people but not to share the rest of our lives with them, but merely for them to guide us onto a different path.
Set in London and Dublin we follow the life of Beth, a young mother of two who is married to Shane, an actor whose work requires him to be in Los Angeles. When Beth meets Daniel, a fun-loving, spontaneous man from Ireland, she realises how much joy and passion are missing from her marriage, and consequently her life. Beth is torn between her marriage to Shane and her love for this Irish charmer

#MFRWHooks “Dublin. Very Irish” #amreading #books #bookrecommendation


Happy Wednesday everyone.
I started sharing snippets from my very first book “Sweet Dreams, Miss England”. I hope you liked it. I moved a little further in the story with Beth travelling to Dublin to meet new friends.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

As much as she was uneasy about the meeting with the two women that night, she was glad she had come to Dublin. After finishing lunch, she still had some time left in the afternoon so she headed to Dublin Castle before going back to her hotel room. As soon as she was back in her room, she felt lonely again and the butterflies in her tummy returned.
THE TOWER was right in the heart of Dublin. It was a very old building, very much like one would imagine a place in Dublin. Very Irish. The big sign above the door had a shamrock on it and something that presumably was supposed to look like a tower. There was a big crowd on the streets on this beautiful spring evening. Beth tried her best to find her way to the meeting point with Siobhan and Erin.
Wait right next to the entrance of the bistro. The door is bright green.
She was so out of her depth and wanted to call them to cancel everything. She’d always been insecure in the presence of Shane’s fans, and right now, she felt silly that she had actually agreed to meet them.

#MFRWHooks “…she fell in love with the city…” #amreading #books #bookrecommendation


Happy Wednesday everyone.
I started sharing snippets from my very first book “Sweet Dreams, Miss England”. I hope you liked it. I moved a little further in the story with Beth travelling to Dublin to meet new friends.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

Beth loved Dublin. She loved the atmosphere, and she enjoyed everyone’s friendliness. She liked the little cafes, the shops, and the tourist attractions — she fell in love with the city within only a very few hours of arriving there.
Beth had wandered the streets first thing in the morning and bought a new outfit for the night. She noticed that wherever she went it was obvious to everyone that she wasn’t a local. The Irish slang was something she had to get used to, though, if she wanted to understand Siobhan and Erin that night. She loved the accent; it was a beautiful sing sang and another plus for the green Isle.
She strolled along the River Liffey, before going back into the main streets for some lunch. Beth was heading towards the Hard Rock Café in Fleet Street when she suddenly spotted a little place called ‘Elephant & Castle’. It had burgers as a specialty, and she decided she had to give it a go. When she stepped inside the bistro, a waiter came her way, led her to a nice table in the corner next to the window, and handed her the menu. She surprised herself for not feeling uncomfortable being on her own, but she was too distracted by watching the world go by and listening to other people talk without actually taking note of what they were saying.

Today’s Hook:

Beth’s hotel room was right in the middle of Dublin, near Grafton Street. She had decided to go for a central hotel so that everything would be close by and she wouldn’t have to venture too far when she went out. The hotel entrance was quite sophisticated and stylish, with a little water fountain on the right in an area where tea and coffee was served for those who were waiting for guests. It looked beautiful and relaxing – big, yet still warm and inviting.
Beth’s room was the opposite of the rather modern and stylish foyer. It reminded her more of a Laura Ashley design, romanticism in warm colours, the ageless style, and harmony of the floral look. It was as if she’d stepped back in time, but she was content especially with the view over Grafton Street. The room was equipped with tea, coffee, and snack facilities so Beth didn’t have to attempt wandering the streets on the first evening. She had arranged to meet Siobhan and Erin the next day and needed that time to get used to the idea that she was going to meet two of Shane’s fans. Even though they all had become quite acquainted over the last few months, she was very nervous.

#MFRWHooks “I can’t believe you remembered.” #amreading #books #bookrecommendation


Happy Wednesday everyone.
I hope you enjoyed last week’s teaser and you got a copy of “Their Bond through Jade” at the special price of only 99c.
Today’s hook is from my very first book “Sweet Dreams, Miss England”.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

As Beth woke up, she adjusted her eyes to the sunshine, which made itself comfortable in her bedroom. She looked outside and noticed the world was starting to breathe. Summer was close and the days were starting earlier, as well as getting warmer. She loved the sun crawling into her bedroom in the mornings and embracing her with its warm rays. Turning over, she looked at the letter which was now framed and on her bedside table. Live your sweet dreams it said. Beth smiled. Still deeply in her thoughts, she heard the phone ring. She glanced at the clock before she answered – it just had to be important at this time of the day.
“Happy Anniversary, Beth.”
Beth smiled when she heard her friend’s familiar voice. “Good morning. I can’t believe you remembered.”
“Of course I did. Who would have ever thought?”
“Yes, it’s strange how life sometimes works out.”
“We’re having dinner at my place tonight. Will you come as well?”
“I’ll be there. And thanks for remembering,” she replied just above a whisper and hung up.
Beth took the letter and held it close. It’d been a year already, she thought – and what a year it had been. She remembered each day so vividly as if it had only been yesterday.

“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?

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:

“Fancy seeing you here.”
Tamara shot around at the sound of the familiar voice and stood in one smooth motion. Staring at Oliver, she noticed how he waved to someone back at the pier.
“Are you following me?” she asked when he looked back at her.
He laughed softly without mirth. “Cupcake, this is one of the most popular places in a radius of about fifty k’s, and you’re sitting here on your own. You draw attention to yourself like a magnet.”
Looking around, she realised he was right. Suddenly that simple fact and the realisation she was so exposed, gave her a shiver. Uncomfortable with the situation, she wrapped her arms around her waist before meeting his gaze again.
“What?” she asked in a whisper.
He shrugged. “Trying to figure you out.”
His reply surprised her. Deep inside she enjoyed his attention, and for a moment, she suppressed her guilt that she’d only recently lost her husband…yet she was intrigued and possibly surprised as well, as to why he wanted to figure her out.
“Why?”
Shoving his hands in his pockets, Oliver rocked back on his heels. He lifted one shoulder in a shrug. “Perhaps I like you against my better judgement.” A smile crossed his lips, and he shook his head in what seemed a bit of amusement. “Or maybe if I figured you out, I’d like you more.”
“More?” she asked.
 He laughed. “I know. It sounds impossible. But, hey, I’ve always liked a challenge.”
Gone was the moment when she’d enjoyed his attention, replaced by a building irritation in her chest. She took a minute to get it under control. With raised eyebrows, she asked calmly, “A challenge? I had no idea I was a challenge.”

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?

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:


Erik ignored the situation and simply said, “Have your shower and see me before you head off to discuss your training schedule.”
Nodding, Oliver took another quick look at Tamara. For a brief moment, their eyes met, and he was puzzled by her expression. It seemed as if her
intense blue eyes were trying to hide something. The distant look in them was almost mysterious, and combined with her body language, he couldn’t
help but get the impression something was wrong. She was very guarded.
With one last look towards Tamara, Oliver turned and left.
As soon as he got to the locker room, he peeled off his T-shirt. Pain shot through him the instant he lifted his right shoulder. He’d been ignoring the twinge during the training session, but knew he had to have it looked at. The fucking skateboard rider had nearly knocked him over the previous day when he came out of nowhere. Oliver hadn’t had a chance to move out of the way fast enough and slammed his shoulder into a post.
He slowly stripped out of his track pants before grabbing a can of Coke out of his bag. Leaning against the wall, he chugged half of the drink while enjoying the quietness around him. Everyone else was still out on the field trying to please Coach Becker. He choked a laugh, hoping his mates would put Erik in a better mood than he had. They had a few important games over the next few weeks before the season ended, and for the first time in years, the club was doing well.
