Anna Campbell’s WHAT A DUKE DARES (Guest Post/Giveaway)



Thanks so much for having me as your guest today. Love the name of the blog! I think I want to use it as the title for my memoirs. Hic! 

Next Tuesday, I have a new book out (I’ll drink to that!). It’s called WHAT A DUKE DARES and it’s number three in my Sons of Sin series. If any of you have read the other SoS books, you’ll know Camden Rothermere, the Duke of Sedgemoor, Mr. Cool, Calm and Composed (that doesn’t last in this story!). 

At the start of Duke, Cam proposes to his childhood friend Penelope Thorne. To his utter amazement, she says no and hares off to Europe, seemingly preferring the company of an eccentric aunt to becoming his duchess. You can see why he doesn’t stick to cool, calm and composed! 

I wondered what Pen would pack when she runs away from a marriage proposal from the most eligible man in England. Here’s what she told me: 

Midnight Vengeance by Lisa Marie Rice (Q&A)

Midnight Man (Midnight, #1)Midnight Run (Midnight, #2)Midnight Angel (Midnight, #3)Midnight Shadows (Midnight, #3.5)

1.) Can you tell us about your new release, Midnight Vengeance?

Oh yeah, gladly! This is one of my favorite books, probably because it gestated so long. We first met Jacko a couple of books ago, a really rough and tough former SEAL whose molecules were rearranged when he spent an hour listening to his boss’s wife playing the harp. Allegra’s music is beautiful, ethereal, miles away from the heavy metal that is Jacko’s usual soundtrack. 

You start a novel at a moment of change for the characters. Jacko has been wildly attracted to a beautiful woman who is worlds away from his usual casual girlfriends—biker chicks who like it rough. Lauren isn’t anything like them and clearly he’s not her type either. Jacko should stay far, far away from someone like Lauren and he would—if he could. The thing is—he can’t. 

No matter how many times he tells himself to walk away from her, his feet simply won’t obey. Which is crazy, right? Because what would a beautiful woman, a frigging artist, want with him? 

And Lauren in turn doesn’t quite know what to do with Jacko. She’s not his type. His type is young and fast and stacked. Sure, Jacko is around a lot. A lot. Every time she turns around, it seems, there he is. Helping her, driving her around, just…there.

Now how much fun is this scenario? Two people from different walks of life circling each other, each scared to make a move. 

Luckily, a homicidal maniac steps in and acts as Cupid.

Jacko is just taken unawares by the depths of his feelings. He has no place to put them, no space in his head that recognizes them. But the feelings are there and they are real. 

Jacko is unlike anyone Lauren has ever met. Her former boyfriends were high-born and gently bred and their shooting skills and combat skills never entered the equation. 

But Jacko has hidden depths and when danger comes knocking Lauren has a chance to see just what Jacko is made of.

Twenty-three year old, Kamryn Cunningham has left all she’s ever known and moved to a small town where no one knows her name, who her parents are, or her social status in the horseracing world. Months after opening her own bakery and evading attempts of being set up by her new best friend, she meets Brody. Kamryn fights the instant pull between them because there’s a detail she can’t dismiss. Brody’s married.

To say that twenty-six year old, Brody Saco has had a rough marriage would be an understatement. After marrying his pregnant girlfriend, he spends the next six years in a relationship filled with hatred, manipulation and guilt involving a tragedy that happened five years earlier. When he keeps running into his sister-in-law’s best friend, Kamryn, he can’t ignore that she makes him feel more with just one look than his wife ever has; and soon he can’t continue fight his feelings for her.

When staying apart proves to be too difficult, Brody and Kamryn enter a relationship full of stolen moments and nights that end too soon while they wait for Brody to file for divorce. But the guilt that comes with their relationship may prove to be too much for Kamryn, and Brody might not be strong enough to face the tragedy from his past in order to leave his conniving wife.


Thoughts:
Sharing You is a book that you are either going to love or hate. For me, the story blew me away and I couldn't have loved it more!

#BookReview: Hard to Hold on To by Laura Kaye - 4 Wine Glasses

Edward "Easy" Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves--which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight. He may have just met her, but Jenna's the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago.

Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can't describe how he makes her feel--and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude.

As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.


Thoughts:

Fans of Laura Kaye's must-read Hard Ink series will love this sojourn into the group's sizable yet reserved teammate, Edward “Easy” Cantrell, in Hard To Hold On To

One Bite Per Night by Brooklyn Ann (Interview/Giveaway)

Bite Me, Your Grace (Scandals with Bite, #1)16099782

Who loves book two in a series? You read the first one and wait eagerly for the next but do you ever wonder what it is like for the author? Our guest today can tell us, welcome Brooklyn Ann!

Lexi: Welcome back to the blog Brooklyn! I had to look back and see when Bite Me Your Grace came out and was shocked to see that a little over a year has passed! Our year has been filled with books but your historical paranormal romance has been on the radar. What have you been up to while you waited for book two, One Bite Per Night released?

First I did TONS of revisions. Due to a marketing decision, my publisher wanted me to add more characters and subplots that weren’t in the original draft. Then, of course, I wrote book 3 in the series, BITE AT FIRST SIGHT (Rafe’s Book!) and I wrote a heavy metal romance that a few publishers are interested in and published the 1st book in my urban fantasy romance series, WRENCHING FATE. So…. It’s been a busy year. ☺

#BookReview: Keeping Mr. Right Now by Robin Bielman - 4.5 Wine Glasses

22392984Title: Keeping Mr. Right Now 
Series: Kisses in the Sand

A temporary agreement neither could keep… 

Brainy, organized Sophie Birch is no beach bunny. In fact, she’s totally out of her element among the sun-bronzed crowd at a film festival in beautiful White Strand Cove. When a surf lesson introduces her to Zane Hollander, suddenly she's up close and personal with the world's sexiest surf star. But what can a great-looking, experienced athlete possibly see in a klutzy out-of-towner who’s never set foot in the ocean? 

Zane Hollander's playboy reputation has never been a problem…until recently. Now his management team wants him on his best behavior to entice a meaningful new sponsor. Sophie Birch is the perfect girl to help reform his image. She's genuine and respected—and their relationship is purely fictional. But the more Sophie blooms under the beachy sun, the more Zane knows he'll just break her heart. Because nothing's more important to Zane than following the tide.


Thoughts:
Zane Hollander stood in profile a few feet away.  Sophie's breath caught.  Up close, he looked like he'd been carved from the most glorious, most gorgeous stone on the planet.  His blond hair was straight, on the longer side and sticking up in GQ messiness.  Square jaw, high cheekbones, perfect nose.  Then he turned and pierced her with ice-blue eyes that knocked her off-balance.

Literally.

She tripped over her own feet and face-planted right into the sand.
