Arresting the Warlord
by Gail Koger

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Sci-Fi Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

CeeCee Tsosie is a Navajo Nation police officer and shaman with the ability to control the weather. She’ll admit arresting Jake Jones, a Coletti Warlord, for speeding was not one of her better decisions. But hey, the law was the law and the drop-dead gorgeous warlord pushed every one of her buttons. She might have been a tad over-zealous with her rainstorm and stun gun, but the Jackass had it coming.

An alien serial killer is stalking the Navajo Nation. The Coletti Empire is hunting a galactic fugitive. Turns out they need each other’s help to stop the shapeshifting predator. Can she work with the Jackass? Can Jake convince CeeCee she’s the one? Only time, and the spirits will tell.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

I woke up sprawled across a warm, masculine chest. I rubbed my cheek against the firm muscles. He felt so good. I bet he tasted good too. I went to lick a nipple covered with a smattering of hair and froze as everything came rushing back. What was I doing? Had I lost my mind?  Probably. I wanted to taste every inch of the Jackass. How sad was that?

Jake’s breath stirred my hair.

I took a cautious peek. His eyes were closed like he was sleeping, but he was a hyper-vigilant warlord. Was he playing possum? More than likely. I tilted my head for a better look at his fine body. Jake was wearing red plaid boxer shorts and socks. A giggle escaped me.

“Hey! Show some respect. They’re made from the tartan plaid of our Scottish Highlander’s clan,” Jake groused.

“Apologies, but I thought warlords went commando.”

“Nope, all the Jones’ boys wear tartan plaid.”

“Even the General?”

“Him too. Ethan and Quinn are the only ones who occasionally go commando.”

“Good to know. What happened to my armor?”

“I deactivated it. It’s hard to cuddle with it on.”

I eyed him suspiciously. “Just cuddle?”

“Actually, I require your naked body against mine.” Jake was suddenly kissing me like a starving man.

A shockwave of need hit me and all I wanted was for him to fuck me blind.

“Your wish is my command,” Jake murmured in my mind.

A ghostly finger circled my clit, rubbing it until the bombardment of pleasure had me squirming.

“Like that, do you?”

My breath came in fast, shallow pants. “No. Not. At all.”

“Liar.”

My eyes rolled back in my head as two marauding fingers pumped into me hard and deep while his thumb continued to lazily circle my clit. “Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God.”

“Not God, I’m just really good at mental sex.” Jake suckled my right nipple and my mind completely shut down as ecstasy cascaded through me. “You’re mine, buttercup, for all eternity.” His possessive hands were everywhere, stroking me, claiming me. “I’ll never let you go.”

I came with embarrassing speed and when the brain jelling climax hit me, I literally saw stars. “Whoa! All that practice. Really paid off.”

“Are you calling me a man whore?”

“I’ve heard stories about how often Coletti warriors go to pleasure houses.”

“A warrior has needs after a battle,” Jake replied.

A dangerous edge to my voice, I warned, “I don’t share. You touch another woman and I’ll cut it off.”

“Not gonna be a problem, buttercup.” A shit eating grin spread across Jake’s face. “The only woman I want to touch is you.”

AUTHOR BIO:


I was a 9-1-1 dispatcher for the Glendale Police Department and to keep from going totally bonkers – I mean people have no idea of what a real emergency is. Take this for an example: I answered, “9-1-1 emergency, what’s your emergency?” And this hysterical woman yelled, “My bird is in a tree.” Sometimes I really couldn’t help myself, so I said, “Birds have a tendency to do that, ma’am.” The woman screeched, “No! You don’t understand. My pet parakeet is in the tree. I’ve just got to get him down.” Like I said, not a clue. “I’m sorry ma’am, but we don’t get birds out of trees.” The woman then cried, “But… What about my husband? He’s up there, too.” See what I had to deal with? To keep from hitting myself repeatedly in the head with my phone, I took up writing.

The Ultimate Betrayal
by Kat Martin

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

To prove her father’s innocent of treason, she’ll have to face a killer--and risk everything...

When journalist Jessie Kegan’s father is accused of espionage and treason, Jessie has no doubt the man she looked up to her entire life is innocent. Worse yet, before Colonel Kegan can stand trial, he’s found dead of a heart attack…but Jessie knows it was murder. Forcing down her grief, she’s determined to use her investigative skills and resources to clear her father’s name. But going after the truth means Jessie soon finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who wants that truth to stay buried with her father.

Protecting Jessie Kegan is a job bodyguard Brandon Garrett can’t refuse. Jessie isn’t just a client at Maximum Security—she’s the sister of his best friend, Danny, killed in Afghanistan. With dangerous forces gunning for Jessie from every angle, keeping her safe will mean keeping her close and Bran finds their mutual attraction growing, though being Danny’s sister puts Jessie out of bounds.

With their backs against the wall, Jessie and Bran will have to risk everything to expose her father’s killer—before his legacy dies with his daughter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT TWO:

Bran leaned back in his chair, his gaze fixed on her face.  “So...no husband.  No serious boyfriend, either?”

“No.  Listen, if you’re finished with the third degree, I’m going to bed.  It’s been a rough day.”

His gaze sharpened.  “Sorry,” he said, not looking sorry at all and even more curious than before--unfortunately.  “I’ll see you in the morning.”

“What time?” she managed to ask calmly.

“We leave at six.”

“I’ll be ready.  Good night, Bran.  And thanks again.  I really appreciate your help.”

Bran casually nodded, but his beautiful blue eyes never strayed as she turned and walked away.  She shouldn’t have let his questions get to her.  It was a dead giveaway to a guy as smart as Brandon that there was more to the story than she was willing to tell.

Far more.

She thought of the man whose brutality had changed her life.  Jordan Duran, Jordy, the man who was currently serving a ten-year prison sentence.  She didn’t like to think about him.  She refused to let him control any more of her life than he already had.  As she had learned to do, she pushed his image from her mind and just thanked God she was still alive.

Yawning, she packed up the computer so she would be ready to travel in the morning and headed to bed. After the drama of the day--being followed from the airport, shot at, meeting Brandon Garrett and his friends, and escaping a possible tail, she should have been exhausted, and she was.  Still, she couldn’t seem to fall asleep.

Every time she started to drift away, she saw Bran’s perceptive blue eyes and wondered what he thought of her.  Wondered if he found her attractive.  It had been months since she had been interested in a man.  After Jordy, none of her attempts at a normal relationship had worked out and eventually she had just given up.

But Bran intrigued her.  Both his physical beauty and his mind.  She also knew that getting involved with Bran on a personal level was a terrible idea.  He was exactly the heartbreaker Danny had warned her about.  He was also ex-military, an adrenaline junkie who loved to be in the middle of the action.  Guys like that never changed.  Just as before, her judgment sucked.

Heart and Soul
by Karen Michelle Nutt

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Paranormal Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

80s rock star, Haley Rose, and her boyfriend went missing without a trace on October 31, 1988, and were eventually presumed dead. Three decades later, thirty-year-old, Rowan Beckett, recalls things only Haley Rose would know, and she can belt out songs in the same unique fashion. However, Rowan couldn't be the missing rock star since Haley would now be in her fifties. Could Haley Rose have come back reincarnated as Rowan Beckett? Or is Rowan as delusional as her family suspects?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT ONE:

He didn't know what was wrong with him. He never felt an attraction toward a woman as intensely as he reacted to Rowan just now. It was like the air had been sucked out of the room, and she was his lifeline. If he glanced away, he'd perish. No, that wasn't entirely it. If he even blinked, he feared she'd cease to exist.

"Would you like a cup of coffee while you wait?" Katie thankfully spoke up, drawing Rowan's concerned expression away from him and his weird-ass meltdown.

"Tea if you have it," Rowan replied.

"Coming right up," he blurted out a little too loudly, but it finally snapped him out of his bizarre trance. He hurried away or rather sprinted if truth be told. He needed to gather his composure, or Rowan would surely hightail it right out of here with the wrong impression of him, and he'd be out a manager. Worse, he would never have a chance to grasp why he wanted to know all there was to know about her.

Was it hot in here? Shit, he was sweating. Anxiety would do that to a man, but what was he so anxious about?

By the time he returned with the tea, he would have thought Katie and Rowan were friends catching up on old times. Rowan was telling Katie about how she carved giant pumpkins last Halloween to look like Frankenstein's Monster and the other to look like Dracula.

"Earl Grey latte with a splash of vanilla," he announced his arrival and slid the cup toward her on the bar.

Rowan's face paled, and she stared at the cup as if he handed her some exotic concoction, she should be wary of sipping.

"Is something wrong?" he asked, concerned over her odd reaction toward a cup of tea.

She finally met his gaze, her big blue eyes wide and curious. "How did you know this was the way I take my tea?"

BOOK TRAILER:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GUEST POST:

Five Reasons You Should Read My Book:

Reason 1: You'll have a chance to take a mini-holiday away from your everyday life.

Who doesn't want to escape if only for a little while? Getting lost inside Heart and Soul will let you hit the pause button on your day of chores, work, or anything else on your To-Do List. For a spell, you'll enter the Heart and Soul coffeehouse and experience what Rowan and Maverick are working through. Since joining Heart and Soul's world also allows you to bring your reality with you, you may find yourself comparing the reality of the character with yours. So as you sip your Earl Gray Latte (or any other drink of choice), you'll have a chance to challenge and process insights into your own world. Or perhaps, you'll reminisce about a concert you'd been, too. Or a relationship that didn't work out and realize you're not alone. No matter what you experience, when you leave this mini-holiday and return back to the real world, you'll disembark with a new perspective.

Reason 2: Face Danger

Rowan is experiencing things that only Haley Rose, an 80s rock star who vanished and presumed dead, would have known. Either Rowan's lost her mind, or just maybe she's been reincarnated. Reading Heart and Soul, you'll have a chance to vicariously experience Rowan's journey as she tries to solve the mystery to what happened to Haley Rose. We are wired to avoid conflict and change just because we don't want to leave our so-called safe zone. However, you can take the chance with Rowan and face the demons or, in this case, ghosts that will lead her to the truth.

Reason 3: Inside a person's mind. See how they really tick.

Heart and Soul will take you into a new realm, and I don't mean just the supernatural plane of existence but into someone else's mind.

You'll have the inside scoop. You'll have a glimpse of how to run a coffeehouse. You'll see how managing the bands that are booked there come to rely on guidance. You'll know how a rock star finds a new way in life after being in the spotlight, and how a woman searches for the truth even when she's unsure of what that truth will be. You'll experience falling in love for the first time and all the other beautiful firsts.

In real life, we have doubts, fears and sometimes wouldn't reveal our most inner thoughts, but with Heart and Soul, you'll peer into Maverick and Rowan's mind and find out not being perfect is perfectly okay.

Reason 4: You'll have a chance to see the world from a vastly different point of view than your own.

You'll step into Rowan and Maverick's shoes and see and feel what they experience. You don't agree with what they do, but perhaps this new experience will give you an insight into your own beliefs and maybe open your mind to other possibilities of what if.

Reason 5: Let's not forget that reading a new book is just flat-out fun!

Stories are entertaining, and Heart and Soul will give you deliciously intoxicating hours of enjoyment. So sit back and enjoy the tale.
