Watching You by Aliyah Burke

Watching youHeat in Texas comes from more than one source…

US Deputy Marshal Teena Mason is stranded. Not in a big town, no, but near a small town named Fort Mavis. After waiting hours in the Texas heat she is rescued and gets a room to rent. When she’s grabbing a bite to eat, she’s reunited with a man she didn’t even know lived here. One she’s had a fling with on occasion.
US Marshal Patrick West is both shocked and pleased when he finds the woman he meets for weekends of hot sex in his hometown. He wants to convince her there is more than just their clandestine meetings between them. Can he show her that he knows more about her than what pertains to the bedroom? Will he have the chance when they are both called back to duty on put on the trail of killers?

With nothing but time on his hands, he accepts an offer from a friend to travel to the lone star state’s Cassidy Cattle Ranch. There he meets River Neil and the four wild mustangs she’s gentling.

The Foreman and The Lady by Kate Richards

The Forman and the LadyMaggie McAfee has not returned to Honeysuckle Ranch since her parents died in an accident a few years before. She has a great job as a professor of obscure literature looking toward tenure at a big California university. Life is perfect. Well not perfect, but pretty good. She misses her brother and dreams of her high school sweetheart, but a woman can’t have everything. And what good was she to the ranch? She couldn’t even sit a horse. It would take a lot to get her home again. Like a terminally ill brother who has only days or weeks to live.

Will Kyle has also been far from the Fort Travis area for the past several years. His stepfather’s heavy-handed takeover of his family property made being there too painful. But his current job as foreman for a large ranch in Oklahoma has ended suddenly and Baxter McAfee’s job offer comes at a great time. What could be better than working for his old buddy on the prettiest ranch, with the best reputation? And with Maggie never coming home, his heart is safe.

But fate has other plans, or maybe Baxter does. A collision of hearts in the face of impending grief will almost certainly end in disaster. No matter how much a dying man wishes for the two people he loves the most to realize what fools they’ve been.

Lone Star Sizzle by Reagan Phillips

lonestarsizzleElementary school teacher Blythe Williams is in need of an adventure. Since a messy break-up six months ago, she hasn’t had the time or the will to date again. So, when a girl’s week at a gulf coast resort comes along, she’s more than ready to jump back in the dating trenches, knowing any hook-ups will be short lived and uncomplicated.

Hunter Cole isn’t the typical Fort Mavis cowboy. The ex-Marine turned kennel manager and part-time rancher has tall, dark, and ruggedly handsome down pat. But the Cole family comes with its share of Texas-sized family drama he’d rather leave behind.

When a broken down car and a mix-up of identity puts Blythe in Hunter’s crosshairs, sparks fly and inhibitions vanish, but will a week with a stranger be enough to mend two broken hearts?

Libby Reynolds loved and lost at the tender age of sixteen when the man of her dreams was tried and convicted of murder. Unable to believe he could ever hurt someone, she’s always held out the hope that someday he would come back to her. That day is today.

Can Brock and Libby find their way back to each other when the truth is revealed? Murder, lies, and broken hearts are the name of the game when the sun sets and the web of corruption is exposed.

Bad boy cowboys have suddenly become her weakness, especially one in particular. Several townspeople warn her away from him, but she sees something they don’t. This bad boy isn’t as bad as he pretends to be.

Hayes Turner likes his women the same way he likes his liquor—no fuss, straight up, and readily available. The burn from the liquor he can handle, but he vowed to never again be in a position to let a woman destroy him. He has no trouble keeping the women in his life in his bed, but far from his heart, until a big city spitfire reignites something inside him that’s long been extinguished.

Perfect Partner by Taige Crewnshaw

Perfect PartnerSomething unexpected leads to the perfect partner for a lifetime…

Louisa “Lou” Langston isn’t expecting to find a man who makes her pulse race when she makes another trip to her doctor’s office. He not only makes her pulse race but makes her wonder what could be. Yet she doesn’t dare expect anything since she knows life doesn’t give you a happy ever after. At least not one that is true. Instead, it kicks you in the teeth and makes you just keep going to the next day and living. But…maybe she can have just a moment for now. She’ll take what the new doctor in town has to offer and not let her heart or emotions get involved. Too bad her heart doesn’t seem to know the plan.

Sinclair Bentley doesn’t know what to do about the sexy woman who he treated. Especially when he finds out she is known for being accident prone with a knack for getting injured in some of the strangest ways. There is something about Lou that makes him want to get to know her better. Getting involved after just recently moving to Fort Mavis wasn’t anywhere in the plan. He wants to just enjoy living. However, he finds himself drawn to Lou and he isn’t a man who walks away from anything that intrigues him. And Lou is that as well as an enigma. She claims she doesn’t want to get involved beyond the physically yet the things she does contradicts her words. Lou might say one thing but it’s up to him to show this stubborn woman that she wants more than just for now and he is the one to give her that happy ever after she refuses to believe in.

When a stubborn woman meets a determined man realization dawns that life doesn’t give you a happy ever after…you have to go for it to find your perfect partner.

Featured Author: Christine Alvarez

Christine Alvarez is this week’s Featured Artist

Featured Author

Please welcome Christine Alvarez here today! She is our Featured Author. Before I get to the Interview, let me share her bio with you.

Bio

I am Christine Alvarez, mother of four spectacular hoodlums and married to the man of my dreams. We all currently reside in my home state of Missouri. When I am not writing I spend my spare time as a chauffeur, maid, cook, and everything in between.

Christine Alvarez
I am addicted to Dr. Pepper and chocolate. They are my vices and lend a large hand in getting the creative juices flowing. I write anything from paranormal romance to erotica. I am a sucker for romance whether it is the kind with a happily ever after or burned and broken end. You will find my work covers those gray areas in between as well.
You can learn more about my work at Facebook and my website.

The Interview

Tell us about your latest release?

My latest release is an extended release of a novella that was originally released as part of an anthology.

Sealed in Blood is a paranormal romance where Kyon, the hellhound, is given a contract to retrieve the soul of Claire, a Nephilim, who wasn’t the one to make the deal to begin with.

When things go wrong all hell is out to get them both.

 

Are you a plotter or pantser?

I am a pantser all the way. I try and plot and that never goes well.

A perfect example is the Beyond Blood series. Plotted as an Urban Fantasy which ended up transforming into a Paranormal Erotic Horror.

 

What was the most difficult part of the publishing process for you?

Editing

At times I feel like I’m doing an entire rewrite. I also struggle with “What the hell is that supposed to mean” syndrome. That generally happens after a  late night cram session.

 

How about the most fun?

Hitting Publish.

It’s a huge high-inducing moment.

 

What inspired you to write your first book? 

I hadn’t written in years. A growing family had put it on the backburner, but when my oldest daughter won a Young Author award in 4th grade it all changed. We went to the conference where two authors were speaking and one told me you weren’t ever too old to write.

So, long story short I went home that day and opened a word doc and started to write. I had no expectations, but it felt amazing and the words poured from my fingers to the keys.

 

Do you have any writing rituals? (Time of day to write, must have beverages? Etc?)

Having 4 kids 11 and under my only ritual is finding time and peace and quiet. I do tend to eat a load of junk food. I tried carrots once and the story fell flat. My muse needs her sweets, lol.

 

 Who is your go-to author, the one you know you can always count on to deliver a great story?

I have a few on my long list. Lately, my mood has been on the darker side of the spectrum so I’ve been reading Ella Dominguez religiously.

 

What projects are you working on at the present?                                                                      

Currently, I am working on the final installment in my very first book and series. I have my sights set on Deveno releasing at the end of this month.

 

What do your plans for future projects include?

Though, I started out writing paranormal romance my muse has dove head-first into the darker waves of the ocean. Most, if not all, of my currently In progress works dip into those darker waters.

I’ll be finishing up the Beyond Blood series as well as starting a few dark standalones.

I also have a few shorts in some amazing upcoming anthologies.

Sealed in Blood, The Hellbound Chronicles, VOL. 1

13403784_1423085167708174_8834639861004020065_oAn agreement sealed in blood, forged by the blind love of a mother for her daughter, but was it the right choice?

Claire, a being created from the union of man and angel, has been hidden in plain sight, her lineage kept a secret from everyone – including herself. Kyon, a Hellhound, has been sent to collect her soul, but one look and those plans have changed.

What happens when fate intervenes? When you fall for the soul you were meant to take? Or for the being that was meant to kill you?

All Hell breaks loose and you take on the demon’s wrath.

The Interview

Tell us about your latest release?

Forever Yours, Casey started out with this idea I had about a grandmother on her death bed admitting she had been keeping love letters written to her daughter hidden away for many years. I quickly became obsessed with the storyline and managed to write the story in a very short amount of time. I did change the main idea a little, though. Casey is a successful lawyer, engaged, running for D.A. He has everything he ever wanted, but he isn’t happy. One day he gets a phone call that the love of his life who disappeared when they were 16 is in jail and needs his help. Desperate for closure he goes to her rescue. Secrets are revealed, passion is burning between them, but he’s engaged, and they both have a lot of hurt to get past. I’m not able to write a straight up dramatic story; I have a lot of humor in my story, including a kooky grandma that really did hide away some letters but not exactly like my original idea.

Are you a plotter or pantser?

I am pretty much a panster, I get a general idea and then let it flow. I can never say how long a story will be or when I will be done with it since I don’t know what’s going to happen. I actually have a huge eight book series I want to write, and I have tried plotting it out, and I think that is why I still haven’t written it. I am intimidated by the plot lines. Hopefully, I’ll get the guts to sit down and write it one day. I might even be more relaxed about it if I accidently spilled tea on my plot sheets and had to start from scratch.

What was the most difficult part of the publishing process for you?

Anyone that says there is an easy part is lying…writing ‘The End’ is hard, editing is hard, don’t forget about designing a cover and shoot me when it comes time for that blurb. Every single step is hard, but when the step is done, I feel accomplished. I think the most difficult part was and always will be marketing. I’m a small fish in a giant ocean, swimming around like Dory, lost and begging for friends. I truly love the Indie community and met some amazing women; they definitely make all of this much easier.

How about the most fun?

Conventions…I love meeting people, talking about my books, hearing what people liked, and getting that face to face time with people that I think we as a society need more of.

What inspired you to write your first book? 

My husband was my inspiration…that man hates to read (I know, cringe right?). He was always giving me crap about reading so much. I became convinced I could get him to read an entire book if it was written specifically to his likes and tastes. The Evolution of Sam was born, his version is slightly different than the copy you all read but almost identical. I’m happy to say he read the entire book and enjoyed it, but he never did fully change his ways. Now instead of grumbling about reading too much he says I write too much.

Do you have any writing rituals? (Time of day to write, must have beverages? Etc?)

The only must I have is silence. I can’t have a T.V. on or anyone home making noise. For me, this means I really only get writing time in after ten p.m. when everyone in the house has gone to sleep. Unfortunately, I can’t stay up too late as I have a day job too. I did just purchase noise canceling ear muffs so I’m hoping those will help me to write when the family is around. Or I’ll be completely unaware of the house being robbed or some other calamity and I’ll have to stop using them. One of the best parts about being Indie is making my own schedule so I don’t have to sacrifice family time to meet a deadline.

 Who is your go-to author, the one you know you can always count on to deliver a great story?

I am fanatical about historical romance, I follow Tessa Dare pretty closely and pick up every book of hers as soon as they release. Other than that I read a lot of YA and it’s usually whatever book my teen throws at me and begs me to read. Sadly, like most authors we rarely have time to read for pleasure and I do miss it. I guess I’ll have to start scheduling reading time in addition to writing time.

What projects are you working on at the present?

So I have an obsession with anthologies. I love the variety, and the opportunity to throw out a quick, fun story on a topic you may not normally write in. I did a Gargoyle for an unusual creature antho which became hugely popular. I just released a twisted Fairy Tale antho where I gender bended Robin Hood and now I’m working on a Halloween antho that is going to be so much fun. Right now we have ten authors working on it and we’re all intertwining our stories and characters. It’s the hardest one I’ve done yet but also the one I am most excited about.

I’m also working on the fourth book in the Love’s Protector Series. It’s been a long time and readers have been begging for more Keara so I think it’s time to continue her story.

What do your plans for future projects include?

Besides the two stories mentioned above I also plan to get out the second book after Broken Dreams, the second book after Wicked Wonderland and then I have a five-book YA series I want to write in addition to the eight book Contemporary series I have plotted. I’m sure in the middle of all of that I will come up with the idea for another antho. Of course, I have to write what is in my head so if a story comes along that wasn’t on the list but demands to be written I am always happy to jump in and get it done.

Meet T.G. Ayer, Featured Author

Featured Author T.G. Ayer

T.G. Ayer is our featured author (from last week.  Sorry, I didn’t get this posted last week). Before we get to the interview, let me tell you a little bit about T.G.

T.G. Ayer

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice given that I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes… I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It’s a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each other’s loves – it works wonderfully…

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands – I shall forever remain cross-eyed.

I love talking to my readers so email me if you have any questions or even if you just want to chat…

The Interview

Tell us about your latest release?

My most recent release is the fourth in my Hand of Kali series. Maya’s in deep trouble in this book, and she’s pretty much on her own without any divine intervention.

Are you a plotter or pantser?

I’m a bit of both. I plot in the sense that I do a vague outline, but that’s as far as I go. Despite the need to be organized and to write fast, I still feel that a story needs to be organic or else it’s too restrictive.

What was the most difficult part of the publishing process for you?

Juggling all the balls. The curse of my publishing like if that I do layout and cover art myself. I’m having to learn to let go now, so I’ve passed my layout on to someone who specializes in it, and I’m also farming out half of my cover art work. Maybe now I won’t’ go gray so fast.

How about the most fun?

The writing process is definitely the most fun, with release day coming a close second!

What inspired you to write your first book? 

I was reading a book by Graham Masterton – I forget the name. In this story, a group of long-lived people used the skins of innocent victims to prolong their lives. It was the image of one victim being skinned that stuck with me long enough that I wrote it down on a slip of paper and tucked it in my handbag. I probably didn’t need to do that since I kept thinking about it for weeks and the story just formed around it without me doing much planning. That became Second Skin which became Skin Deep – Book 1 in the SkinWalker series.

Do you have any writing rituals? (Time of day to write, must have beverages? Etc?)

I prefer to write in the morning. Crack open the eyes, morning ablutions, then start writing. I like to get my creative work done first thing because there’s usually so much else to get done that I’m often a little scatterbrained. If I don’t manage to get all my words done by midday, I give it a second go after ten pm for a couple hours. When I’m writing I like a cup of tea every few hours but I taught myself a long time back to avoid snacking. Helps me to not turning into a blob with a pair of hands.

13708311_1146970285362455_3610088054622238012_o

 Who is your go-to author, the one you know you can always count on to deliver a great story?

Tess Gerritsen is my current fave since I’m on a thriller binge. I change all the time so it may just be Stephen King or Dean Koontz tomorrow.

What projects are you working on at the present?

Right now, I’m working on an FBI profiler story for my alter ego Toni Vallan. I’m also fleshing out the outlines for SkinWalker 5 and SoulTracker 2 – both books are crying out to be written.


What do your plans for future projects include?

The next 6 to 10 months will be devoted to:

  • Hand of Kali 5 – Spirit and Soul – which concluded that series
  • Irin 3 – Resonance – I haven’t’ decided yet how far that story goes. I figure when I outline Resonance I’ll have more of an idea.
  • SkinWalker 6 – Fate’s Edge. This was meant to be the final book in the series but because there is so much that needs to go into the other offshoot series, I may delay its release until the SoulTracker and MindMelder books are released.
  • The Lost Daughter – also set in the DarkWorld this is a standalone spin-off that explores the story of a young girl destined to be a great queen who is stolen and hidden for almost a decade. Characters from the SkinWalker series feature strongly in this book.
  • SoulTracker 2, 3 & 4 – these are scheduled to be outlined and written over the next 6 months to a year. Mel needs to catch up to Kai a little more and my fans are impatient for more tracker/djinn/gargoyle goodness.
  • Valkyrie Part 2 After Ragnarok – the second Valkyrie series is also on the cards. I’ve had a lot of emails about the series so as soon as I can find the time I’ll start writing them.
  • My alter-ego Toni Vallan has the FBI Profiler series coming – currently 3 books planned which will explore suicide bombing and the adoption black market.
  • Toni also has a couple more psychological thrillers planned so look out for those too.

Maya would disagree.

Maya must track down the killer & fight off zombies. Worst of all, she’d better watch her back because betrayal is in the air.

The Interview

 

Tell us about your latest release?

Deep Within is another case that Detective Angelo Baldoni picks up that will make him step outside his comfort zone.

Are you a plotter or pantser?

Pantser. I try to outline and set chapters up but my characters always take me somewhere else.

What was the most difficult part of the publishing process for you?

Giving up control to my publisher! This is the first book I haven’t published myself.

How about the most fun?

Hearing what readers think of the book. Knowing some want to hurt me if I don’t fix it!

 What inspired you to write your first book? 

Heather H MullinsI have always enjoyed reading and writing but I met some amazing people in the Indie community that pushed me to try new things.

Do you have any writing rituals? (Time of day to write, must have beverages? Etc?)

I find I can focus best when I’m up at Panera.

 Who is your go-to author, the one you know you can always count on to deliver a great story?

Sadly, I haven’t been able to read since I began to write. I’m not sure why and it drives me crazy!

What projects are you working on at the present?

I’m working the novella for the series. This will be a romance about Nate, one of the characters in the series.

What do your plans for future projects include?

I’m not sure as of yet, it will depend on what my characters tell me.

Excerpt 1

 

Desperation is a wholly conscious nightmare. It grips me like a stone ogre engrossed in ripping my hair out. She sits on my chest throttling me with hairy-clawed mitts while breathing putrid stink breath in my face. This emotional beast isn’t going to let me breathe untainted air while I suffer for days over my inadequacies and failings.

I’m leaving home with my backpack on, dragging a duffle bag full of doubt and crooked memories. The knife of guilt stabs my gut for running away. I should feel worse about leaving Evie and Jonah, instead of Ollie, but my dog needs me. I need her—and I can’t take her with me. Evie will be all right. She always is. At least, it’s what I keep telling myself. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to abandon my sister. Jonah is too little to understand what it’s like to be a nineteen-year-old. Ollie is already living down the street at a neighbor’s house.

“Please don’t go,” Evie says, hanging on my neck.

Her kid arms are so thin. That doesn’t mean she’s a wimp. Evie is strong. She has way more strength than I do. Evie can hold up the Statue of Liberty in a hurricane. She grips me like she’s clinging to the edge of the world. A piece of my humanity shatters when I make her let go.

I’m breaking something that I can’t fix. It’s trust, but there’s probably a long list of sacred sisterhood principles being flushed down the drain as I make my way to the door. I dismiss the feelings like irrelevant background noise. Not that Evie is irrelevant or that she won’t ever trust me again, but I can’t trust myself not to hurt someone who I love more than anyone else in the world. If I can’t trust myself, then I can never forgive myself either.
