Guest author Savannah Blaize- debut release FROM PARIS TO FOREVER #Romance #eBook

One of the perks of being an author is that, on occasion, you get an advance sneak peek at the work of talented writing buddies. Today I’m delighted to showcase FROM PARIS TO FOREVER, the debut novel from my friend and fellow Melbourne Romance Writers Guild member, Savannah Blaize. This sexy and heartwarming romance is on pre-order at Amazon, for release April 14.

When Real Estate owner Todd Baker appears unannounced at Chloe Armstrong’s front door offering to buy her home, she is unimpressed by his offer, his good looks or his expensive suit. Not to mention his killer smile.

Chloe has spent years as a dancer at the Lido in Paris. Until a career ending fall sent her back home to be with her dying father. An independent woman, who has found a new purpose restoring her home, she has no time for a controlling man in her life.

Reluctant to let this golden opportunity pass to own a prime piece of beachside property, Todd wears down Chloe’s defences enough to allow a friendship to develop. He is surprised to find he is enjoying her company. He is falling for the ex-dancer, but is totally in denial.

When Patrick, Todd’s laid-back, charismatic and handsome younger brother appears, sparks fly between Patrick and Chloe.

Can Todd persuade Chloe to see him as he really is underneath the expensive façade?

Will Chloe learn to trust someone with her heart, when she has been so badly let down before?

Guest author Khloe Wren – new release Fierce Guardian #PNR #Shifters

fierceguardian-customdesign-jayaheer2015-3drenderI’m delighted to welcome Khloe Wren to my blog today with details of her brand new release, Fierce Guardian. This paranormal romance will appeal especially to those of you (like me!) who love shifter romance.

He’s found his true mate at last—but she’s caught in a deadly trap.

Australian Xander Moore is one of a secret cadre of humans who can shift into the form of a snow leopard. His predator side is gorgeous and deadly. He’s also lonely. Somewhere out there is his true mate … if he can find her before the Triggers destroy them all.

To the team he leads in search of the brutal Triggers, Xander is known for his calm strength in the midst of danger. But when he glimpses the mate he’s dreamt of for years, he’s torn between the mission and his instinctive drive to protect and claim. Xander loses focus, leading to dire consequences.

British visitor Rachel Bell is caught in a trap. Her boyfriend’s offer of a job to extend her visa has turned into forced servitude in his bar. The night he beats her and locks her in their apartment, she’s desperate enough to get help the only way she can—by starting a fire.

When her abuser attacks her brave rescuers, Rachel discovers she herself may be a deadly weapon. Is she brave enough to unleash her shocking new abilities and save them all?

fierceguardian-400x600Excerpt

Kit grabbed a five dollar note and headed for the change machine near the door. As she waited for her money to be converted to coins she casually glanced outside, spotting the ute half a block down. He wouldn’t be able to see much from where he was, but was probably set to follow Rachel when she left. Kit returned to where Rachel was shoving clothes into a machine with more force than necessary.

“Sorry, Rach. I didn’t mean to jump you as you came in. You’re a little later than normal and I was getting concerned, then I saw your bruised throat. You’re my friend and I’m worried about you.”

Rachel stopped what she was doing and turned to face Kit with a shocked expression.

“You consider me a friend? All we ever do is wash our clothes together once a week.”

Kit held her gaze. “And we chat. For a couple hours once a week we talk. That’s more time than most friends spend together each week. Was it Rocco that left the bruises? What the hell did he do to you?”

With a shake of her head, Rachel rolled her lips in as her eyes moistened. She twisted to return to what she’d been doing when Kit couldn’t hold herself back. Kit reached out and gently gripped her shoulder.

“I can help you, Rachel. If you want to get away from him.”

Rachel’s shoulders rose and fell before she faced Kit again, completely stone-faced.

“It’s nothing, Kit. I bruise easily, but thankfully they never last long. This will be completely gone by nightfall. Don’t worry yourself over it, okay?”

Realizing she wasn’t going to get Rachel to admit to anything, Kit let her hand fall away from her shoulder.

“Okay, I’ll leave you alone for now. But promise me that if you ever do need help, you’ll ring me. You can trust me, Rachel.”

“Sure, Kit. I’ll call you… if you give me your number.”

Kit chuckled as she took Rachel’s phone from her. “Well, yeah. A phone number would certainly help things along wouldn’t it?”

She tapped her details in and saved it to her phone book, then sent herself a message so she had Rachel’s.

“Right, and I have yours. Now we can ring during the week and chat whenever the mood strikes us. Maybe even go out for a coffee or something. Jessie calls us the laundry ladies. He thinks I don’t know, but I heard him talking to the others.”

GODS OF LOVE series in PRINT – Jennifer Lynne

Gods of Love Novella Collection_Jennifer LynneThe whole GODS OF LOVE series is finally in print for the first time ever! I am delighted to announce that all five novellas in my erotic series about the Greek gods of desire are available in a Trade Paperback bundle, and there’s even an option to purchase an author-signed copy if you’d like one.

Why did I wait so long? Blame it on ICE QUEEN, the book that never ends! I had planned for that to be the final novella in the series, but Eros and Meika’s story has turned into my first full-length novel. So, instead of releasing novellas 4-6 in Volume 2, as a companion to the already available first three stories in Volume 1, I now have the whole collection of five stories together for the first time.

Yes, this bundle offers 345 sexy pages in which even the Greek gods themselves prove they are not immune to the influence of mortal love. Warning – you definitely need to be over 18 to read this erotic collection 😉

Debut #book release – Cassandra O’Leary @AvonBooksUK #SexyRomance

Debut #book release – Cassandra O’Leary @AvonBooksUK #SexyRomance

GirlOnAPlane_cover_July2016Today I’m delighted to feature an interview with my friend and fellow Melbourne Romance Writer’s Guild (MRWG) member, Cassandra O’Leary, author of debut novel from Avon Maze, Girl on a Plane.

Welcome Cassandra! Tell us what you’ve written.

So far, I’ve written two complete novels and several partials (in the ‘ideas file’) and a few short stories. My first published work was a 9,000 word short story/novelette, Chocolate Truffle Kiss, in a romance anthology published by my awesome writing group, the Melbourne Romance Writers Guild. The anthology is titled Sweet and Spicy – a celebration of romance. It’s now available to purchase from Amazon as an e-book and in exciting news, it will soon be available as a print edition!

My debut novel has just taken off on 18 July! Girl on a Plane is a contemporary romance/romantic comedy that’s steamy, sexy and sassy, about an Irish flight attendant named Sinead, who meets a gruff and gorgeous Aussie CEO, Gabriel, in first class. Their Melbourne to London flight is diverted when a storm hits in mid-air, and they find themselves thrown together in a hotel in Singapore. What follows could be a one-night stand, or maybe something else entirely.

I received a publishing contract for Girl on a Plane after winning the global We Heart New Talent contest run by HarperCollins UK in 2015. That was a thrill! I’m hoping that HarperCollins UK will also be interested in my next novel, Dating Little Miss Perfect. That’s close to completion, so wish me luck…

Over the past couple of years, I’ve also been a finalist in the 2014 First Kiss contest run by Romance Writers of Australia and the 2015 Lone Star contest run by the Northwest Houston Romance Writers of America.

Where do your ideas come from?

When I started writing Girl on a Plane, I found inspiration in the places I’d travelled to personally, some of which are featured in the book: Melbourne (my home city), Singapore, London, Paris and Thailand. I also have a family member who is an ex flight attendant, and some of her stories stuck in my mind. I was interested in the idea of writing about someone whose home was the entire world, but nowhere, at the same time. If you are always in transit, it can be hard to form friendships and relationships.

I also love romantic comedy movies, and once I started writing, those influences flooded into my work. In Girl on a Plane, you might spot references to Love Actually, When Harry Met Sally and maybe more.

Give us an insight into your main character. What does she do that is so special?

My main character in Girl on a Plane, is Irish flight attendant, Sinead. She’s 26 years old and has been working for the (fictional) Mermaid Airlines for five years. At the start of the book, we meet Sinead on board a flight to London, going through the motions of a silly dance to the airline’s theme song. She’s getting tired of the routine and the constant travel, even though she plasters on a pretty smile.

I suppose what’s special about Sinead is that she’s quirky and funny, resilient and much tougher than her glamorous exterior might suggest. Without giving away any spoilers, she’s had family issues and an ex-boyfriend stalking her, and some of these issues come back to cause trouble during the course of the book. More of her background and the reasons for her hesitant reaction to the hero become evident, as the story progresses.

At first glance, if you met Sinead dressed in her flight attendant uniform with immaculate hair and makeup, you might assume she’s a light-weight, but she’s not. She’s got big plans for her life, and she’s able to handle herself, and the grumpy hero, Gabriel, too!

Steamy excerpt from Girl on a Plane:

She was so sexy. So confident and beautiful. Powerful.

Gabriel usually took charge with women, but letting Sinead call the shots had been mind-blowing so far. What they’d got up to in the early hours of the morning had been a gourmet appetizer, but it was time for the main course. Hopefully one of many dishes. A ten-course degustation menu to be tasted and savoured. Hours and hours of feasting.

She pulled him into the bathroom and flicked on the jets in the enormous shower.

“Wait a sec.” She slipped her hand out of his hold and rushed off towards the basin.

The way her butt and hips swayed from side to side was a thing of beauty.  If she didn’t act soon, he wouldn’t be able to control himself. She rustled around in her cosmetic bag and retrieved a foil packet, then waved it in the air in victory.

“Come here, you big dirty man.”

His lips stretched upwards. “You think I’m big and dirty?”

Her eyes were wide and innocent as she nodded. “Oh yes, very big. Very filthy.”

Gabriel swallowed when she bit her lip, her gaze roaming down his body. Shit. At this rate, the show would be over soon. He was so hard already it verged on painful. His groin tightened further and he clenched his hands into fists by his sides. He tried to control the tension inside him.

She swayed over to him. He had to touch her, if only her shoulder. Stroking her silky skin made his breath catch in his throat. Her little gasp was music.

She ripped open the little packet, reached out and slowly sheathed him. Now he groaned so loud, she laughed, light and tinkling.

His hand hovered over hers, then he grasped her fingers and stopped the stroking movement she’d begun. So close. He’d lose it if she kept it up. Without another word, he took hold of her hips and lifted her so those long, slim legs wrapped around his back.

“I want you inside me, Gabriel,” she whispered.

The blood pounded through his veins and his heartbeat resonated in his ears. He wanted her so much. But he teased her, kissing her mouth, stroking against her until she shivered. Then he pressed inside her. No more waiting. His breath leaked out, it felt so good. He almost gave in to the impulse to drive her hard and fast.

No, she’d have her pleasure. He wanted her to come apart in his arms.

Blurb

A sexy, sassy, summer read. CLIMB ON BOARD . . .

When feisty Irish flight attendant Sinead Kennealy locks eyes with sexy Australian CEO Gabriel Anderson in First Class, sparks fly. But as they jet across the globe from Melbourne to London, it’s clear that they’re in for a turbulent journey . . .

Stressed-out Gabriel doesn’t do relationships. And Sinead isn’t about to be fooled by another bad boy after escaping her stalker ex. Then a storm hits, causing the plane to land unexpectedly, and Sinead and Gabriel are thrown together in Singapore.

The pressure rises as Sinead’s unhappy past threatens to catch up with her. But might Gabriel be the one to heal her heartbreak? If he could open up about his troubling secrets, maybe a relationship could actually get off the ground. Fasten your seatbelts – this WON’T be a smooth ride . . .

Re-release of an old favorite! EDUCATING ETHAN #Sexy #Romance #Kindle

EducatingEthan200The closure of one of my publishers last year, while sad at the time, provided an opportunity to revisit and revamp an old favorite. EDUCATING ETHAN, out today, has had a significant overhaul, with the latest incarnation containing expanded scenes, more mature writing (I hope!), and a lovely new cover thanks to the talented Jay Aheer.

This sexy romance novella has been described in reviews as: a short, feel good story of living in the moment and trusting that whatever happens in the future, you can embrace it willingly with no regrets.

Buy your copy (only 99 cents USD) at:

All Romance eBooks  Amazon US  /  Amazon AU  /  Amazon UK  /  Apple iBooks

Here’s the blurb:

Who is educating who in this cougar encounter? Ida’s new life and success in her catering career has helped overcome a painful divorce. When the much younger Ethan moves in across the street, an innocent flirtation quickly becomes serious when the two realize their age difference is no barrier to all-consuming passion.

Ethan is the exact opposite of what Ida needs. He is young and vibrant, with his life and dreams still ahead of him, whereas hers are all in the past. Can Ethan, who is fighting his own demons in the form of a car accident, failed marriage and forced career change, convince Ida to overcome the past and live for the moment?

Or will this so-called “cougar” take what she needs and escape before her heart is broken for a second time?

This sexy romance novella is a re-release of a previously published eBook. This edition contains several expanded scenes.
