Spotlight On: Stupid Boy by Cindy Miles

Title: Stupid Boy

Author: Cindy Miles

Series: Stupid in Love #2

Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

From Cindy Miles, bestselling new adult author of STUPID GIRL, comes the next installment of her blockbuster Stupid in Love series – STUPID BOY. 

Brax Jenkins and Olivia Beaumont are the most envied couple at Winston University—but the so-called “virginity dare,” orchestrated by Brax’s old fraternity, almost tore them apart. Now, a new dare is taking shape, and it’s sure to set emotions ablaze–more than ever before.

Winston’s “It Girl” Harper Belle isn’t just president of the Deltas–she’s also a master at keeping her ugly past a secret. So, when the Kappas’ dare hits closer to home for her more than anyone realizes, she devises a competition of her own as payback. Three sorority sisters will seek out a notorious womanizer on campus and–unbeknownst their “mark”–secretly train him to be the perfect boyfriend. Always up for a challenge, Harper targets the biggest player she can find: Brax’s wickedly handsome foster brother Kane McCarthy.

But, Harper discovers there’s much more to Kane than girls, games, and partying. His easy smile belies the quiet, old soul reflected in his deep brown eyes. All it takes is one night, one secret laid bare, and one kiss from Kane to shift Harper’s world on its axis. Suddenly, the girl who’s always walked a straight and narrow path can’t think of anything else except losing control.

Excerpt
 
By the time I’d finished a very poor attempt at
studying for an Art test and exited the library, the tell-tale signs of pending
dusk had crept onto Winston’s manicured campus. The early November air felt
crisp against my cheeks as it whisked through, rustling the leaves and sending
several pirouetting to the ground to land in scattered colors on the grass like
some strange abstract stained glass. Knowing darkness would soon swallow
everything, I hurried to the campus coffee house and café that stayed open
until midnight. Inside, students sat at tables studying, their laptops open,
the light illuminating their faces and coffee cups by their sides. As I took my
place in line I selected my usual pre-packaged turkey sandwich and a bottle of
lemonade and stood, waiting to pay.
    “That’s all you’re eating?”
    I jumped at the voice behind me and turned to find Kane
there. Instantly, my insides froze. He gazed down at me, his hands shoved into
his pockets, those broad shoulders sort of hunching toward me, almost…cornering
me; his eyes as worn and soft as the leather jacket he wore.
    “Um, yes,” I answered. I gave a hesitant smile. “Not very
hungry, I guess.” What was he doing here? Suddenly I felt closed in—a feeling I
avoided at all costs.
    “So what’s good here?” he asked. His Boston accent was heavy
and void of the letter r, just like
Brax’s, only…softer. Quiet. The kind of voice that you had to pay close
attention to or else you’d miss what they were saying completely.
    I couldn’t believe he was talking to me. I shrugged,
pretended he didn’t bother me, and held up my sandwich. “Turkey?”
    He said nothing as he lifted three turkey sandwiches from
the cooler; his smoky gaze remained riveted to mine. Then, he bent his head
close. “Kane McCarthy.”
    I looked at him then, taken back by how his voice washed
over me and made my skin tingle. I forced myself to breathe; I wasn’t used to
being in this kind of situation. Guys just didn’t go out of their way to talk
to me. I made sure of it. But I didn’t balk. I mean, after all—Kane was my
potential reformation Dare. Right? Murphy’s words rushed back to me. Reform the barmy beast! I breathed.
Smiled. Pretended. “Harper Belle.”
    Again, his eyes softened, and as we stepped up to the
cashier he gave her a nod and inclined his head toward me. Before I could say a
word, the cashier had rung our orders up together, and Kane handed her a
twenty.
    I looked at him, embarrassed. “Oh no, really, that’s okay,
you don’t have to—”
    Kane’s eyes moved over me. “Yeah,” he said quietly. “I do.”

Guest Post: Age Indifferent by Barbara Morgenroth, author of the Bittersweet Farm series

 
<!– [if supportFields]> SEQ CHAPTER \h \r 1<![endif]–><!– [if supportFields]><![endif]–>AGE INDIFFERENT
Some years ago, a friend read one of my books and observed “What people don’t understand about your work is that you’re writing for adults even though your characters may be young.”
Age appropriateness was a continuing issue in publishing until Harry Potter and now, since the digital revolution, it’s all but disappeared.  Readers can easily find books that suit their interests, and categories have lost the importance they once had.  Is a book a Young Adult because of the age of the characters or the situations?  What makes a book adult fiction?  Age or content?  Was Harry Potter meant for children or for readers?
Do classifications matter as long as the story is compelling and satisfying?
In my equestrian fiction, Bittersweet Farm, the sisters were seventeen when the series began, and now are both eighteen. Home schooled, they didn’t have the social life of a teenager.  There was no dating, no classes, no pressure to conform.  Talia Margolin and her sister, Greer, are in the process of becoming adults and taking on the mature emotions and responsibilities of an adult. This is not always easy and they both often miss the mark they wished to achieve.
The audience for the Bittersweet series is largely adult readers.  They tell me they appreciate the serious approach to life, horses, and competition. They appreciate that the information about horses and riding is correct, but also respond to the way the characters treat their horses and each other with kindness and respect.
Over the last eight books in the series, Talia and Greer have faced old demons, reexamined choices, mourned the loss of friends, families and innocence, and have created new relationships.  There have been many lessons both on and off horseback.  New horses have come into their lives and others have left.  Knowing when to let go and learning when to hold on tight is part of becoming an adult.
The Bittersweet Farm books are for readers. No one’s age makes a difference.

  Mounted

Bittersweet Farm 1

When a handsome new trainer arrives at Bittersweet Farm, the competition between half-sisters is no longer limited to the show ring. Talia Margolin’s life has been marked by events completely beyond her control–her mother’s death, her move to her father’s horse farm, the retirement of her show horse.
Now she faces the arrival of a new coach whose job is to get Talia’s half-sister, Greer, qualified for the finals at the National Horse Show. Greer is brutal on trainers but Lockie Malone is different. Handsome, talented, and with a will of hardened steel, Lockie can be an immovable object. He also becomes the agent for change in the lives of everyone at Bittersweet Farm.
For seventeen year old Talia, change has never meant anything but loss. Will this time be different?
 
 
 
 
An hour later, we were looking at the X-rays he had taken.
“You can see some bone changes here and here.” Dr. Fortier pointed. “And he’s got some arthritis. It’s normal for a horse his age.”
“There’s nothing we can do, is there?”
“Make him comfortable,” Dr. Fortier said. “You can give him some supplements, Bute for pain. You can hack out in the woods once in a while, but his show days are over.”  
    
“Did I do this to him?”
“Age did,” Lockie replied.
“Horses only look strong and everyonestarts to wear with age. It’ll happen to you, too,” Dr. Fortier said with a smile.
I didn’t feel like smiling and went into Butch’s stall while Lockie and the vet went outside.
We had been together since before my mother died. She’d been ill for a few years and it was obvious to me that she was never going to get better. She had a transparency overtaking her where each day she faded a bit more.
My father had been managing almost everything for those years as it became progressively more difficult for her to conduct her life. He made the arrangements for the hospitals and the doctors and begged her to marry him again and again until she finally gave in so that my future wouldn’t be in question.
He moved us to the farm and to give me something to try to take my heart and mind off what was happening, Butch was found for me.
Greer hated it. Blaming my mother for destroying her own family, she didn’t want me in the house. That September a boarding school in Virginia became her new home; she was as happy as Greer ever is. Her mother is still happily living in London on the extremely generous divorce settlement my father offered.
I had Butch and quiet and ever-present apprehension.
Then the time came when even with full time nursing, my mother had to go to the hospital and she never came home.
My father returned to the city, a nanny was brought in for me, and a trainer. I lived alone for the rest of that school year. When Greer came back from Virginia, we started in on the serious equitation and junior hunter training.
The rug had been pulled out from under me again and I buried my face in Butch’s neck and cried.
“Talia,” Lockie said from behind me. “He’s retiring, not dying.”
“He’s my best friend.”
“We’ll get you a new friend.”
“Idiot,” I said, turned and pushed past him.
Barbara was born in New York City but now lives at Black Cat Farm.
Envisioning a career as a globe-hopping photojournalist, after college she determined her hop muscles weren’t global strength so turned to writing.
No life experience is safe from her keyboard and Barbara has proved that being a magnet for story material may be overstimulating to live through but it’s all ultimately research.

Spotlight On: Forever Now by Elise Sax

Release Date: 11/29/14
Summary from Goodreads:
When Tess’s mother abandons her
during her senior year at high school, she must find a way to keep the secret
and survive until graduation. She’s surprised when Cruz, her crush and an
aspiring model, moves in to help. Tess has dreams of studying in Paris, France
and becoming a writer…impossible dreams without money or family. But as Tess
and Cruz’s relationship grows closer, Cruz will do anything to make sure Tess’s
dreams come true. But at what price?
Forever Now is the first book in the Forever YA / NA trilogy about finding
love, living dreams, and overcoming great odds.

Forever begins now.

Teaser Excerpt

But I was wrong about the line he wouldn’t cross, wrong about him not wanting to share himself with me. Cruz would always be generous. He would give and give and never hold back where I was concerned.

In fact, later, he would give me too much. He would love me and cherish me, and out of that love would come pain and more. But sitting there by the pool the day my mother abandoned me, I didn’t understand the other side of love. Why would I? I had no experience with that particular emotion.

From Taming the Country Star by Margo Bond Collins

 

“You know,” she said, “Until I met you, I didn’t really pay attention to music. It was something in the background. And I didn’t pay attention to tabloids either.” She peeked up at him from beneath her lashes, and Cole’s breath caught.

“Do you now?” he asked, giving in to the urge to move closer to her.

“Do I what?” her voice had gone breathy.

“Pay attention?”

“To you?”

“Yes.” He was close enough now that his breath fluttered through her hair.

“Yes,” she whispered.

Cole wasn’t sure if she was answering his words or his actions, but suddenly he didn’t care. He reached down to cup her face and leaned in to kiss her.

She didn’t move as he grasped her shoulders and pulled her in toward him.

She wrapped her arms around his neck and he pulled her as close as he could. The touch of her mouth was electric as he teased her lips open with his tongue.

He felt, more than heard, a tiny moan escape her and he deepened the kiss. She returned it with equal fervor, her lips moving feverishly against his. His breath caught in his throat. He had missed this so much.

God, she tasted good, like cinnamon.

He swelled as her breasts brushed against his chest, and his fingers tangled in her hair, his knuckles grazing the brick wall behind her.

Spotlight On: The Devil at Play, by Marcus Damanda

 

 

The Devil at Play
Marcus
Damanda
The Devil in Miss Drake’s Class, 3

“Everyone loves the devil until they know him. Until they see him for what he really is.” Nobody ever did, even as the bodies started to pile up. But now, too late for it to matter, Audrey understands at last. The devil of Fairview has been courting her for days, and watching her for much longer than that. The murderer is her boyfriend—and he’s been killing on her behalf. 

His name is Jack Maddox, but everyone calls him Mad Jack. He’s planning a party, where everyone is invited, especially Audrey’s tormentors—especially the Facebook Fifteen. 

Audrey will have her revenge, whether she wants it or not. 

Because, in Miss Drake’s class, the devil will have his due.

Excerpt:

As he cleaned the knife, she fought her way back to the surface. Eventually, she managed words. “I still don’t know which parts of this were real. Or if I’m completely crazy.”

“You’re not crazy, Audrey,” he reassured her. “You never were. No more than I was. And you’re not crazy now. Just the opposite, in fact.”

When she let the silence stretch again, making it meaningful, he continued.

“Your problem is the same as mine. You see things how they really are, and it makes you sad. Makes you angry. What happened here wasn’t a hallucination. What happened here was justice—for you.”

Polishing the blade, he glanced at her sidelong, expectantly.

He’s holding a knife, she said to herself. And spoke her mind anyway. “I’m nothing like you.”

He smiled. “You’re nicer than me, that’s for sure. No contest.”

“You’re… like the devil, Jack.” Please don’t kill me. You can read my thoughts, I know it now. You’ll know if I lie. I’m being honest with you. I want the truth.

“The devil?” Jack said, chuckling. “Not sure if I believe in ‘the devil.’ Never been to the other side, either way. But I know from pictures he has red skin, pointy tail, horns, carries a pitchfork… usually has pretty big eyebrows.”

Audrey put her hand over his wrists, stopped his polishing. “No, Jack,” she said. “The devil is far too smart to look like that. Everyone loves the devil, until they know him. Until they see him for what he really is.”

They regarded each other.

“Does this mean we can’t be friends?” he joked. “Bet you never thought you’d have first period English with the devil.”

“No,” she said. “I never did.”

“By your description,” Jack said, his smile fading. “The devil was in Miss Drake’s class. But it wasn’t me.”

“Jack,” Audrey said, giving up. “I want to go home. Can I go home, please?”

“Soon,” he said, tossing the knife in the sink, turning around, and leaning up against it. “You have to do something for me first. Don’t worry. I don’t think you’ll have a problem with it. I hope not, anyway.”

Audrey narrowed her eyes. She wasn’t afraid. After tonight, she didn’t know if she had any fear left in her. “What?” she asked.

“In order for you to understand the ‘what,’” he said. “You first have to understand who Ireally am. Completely—or at least as much as I understand, myself. Time is short, so pay attention.”

Audrey listened.

Spotlight On: One Last Hold by Angela Smith

Romantic Suspense
Date Published: November 5, 2014

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Wesley Webb is at the pinnacle of his auto racing career when his main rival is murdered hours after their confrontation. That, along with evidence found at the scene, shades him as prime suspect. Now he’s under intense press scrutiny, particularly from Caitlyn Daniels, an ex-girlfriend who knows all about his secret past.
Caitlyn thought to never see Wesley again. Now, his life could be in her hands. Ten years ago, a tragedy tore apart everything she held dear, including their relationship. When she’s assigned to do an exclusive story with the reluctant race car driver she once loved, she believes this could be her purging. But chemistry tears apart her resolve to stay strong. Can they work out their differences and fall in love again, or will tragedy keep them apart?
Excerpt
She took a deep breath. Usually her interviews became more personal. She wasn’t sure how personal to get with him. She knew a lot about him—at least she used to—but she was scared of asking him the wrong thing. She didn’t want to set him off.
“What’s your favorite color?” Caitlyn held a pen in her hand, poised to write, trying to concentrate on the task at hand. Her focus, though, was Wesley’s deep green eyes. Eyes able to pierce her and reach a part of her no one had ever been able to touch before. Something about the way he looked at her, like he saw only her, deep down, clear to her soul.
A hint of danger lurked in his eyes, a predator-like stance that made her sense he was ready to devour her, sexually and otherwise. A vulnerability that made Caitlyn yearn to take him in her arms, to be as close to him as possible. His gaze held no arrogance, no indifference, and no deceit.
Her throat felt parched. His eyes devoured every morsel of her power and well-being.
She couldn’t think of a decent thing to say. Thank God it was his turn to talk.
“My favorite color,” he said as he leaned across the table, closer to Caitlyn, “is the capricious color of your eyes.”
His lips were only inches from hers so that his breath licked against her skin. His eyes possessed her.
She clutched her pen in midair, frozen in space for a mere second. He touched her hand.
The pen fell.
“Blueberry,” he said as he trailed a light kiss across her knuckle, his eyes still magnetizing hers. Her heart stopped in her throat. “Dark and wounded. Cornflower blue, tantalizing with banter and witticism.” He kissed the tip of her pinkie and went on to taste each finger, slowly taking his time with each one. “Sea blue, bright and sparkling like the waves catching a sunset, when you’re happy.”
Caitlyn, entranced with his words, was amazed he even noticed her eyes and more amazed he practically recited poetry. Where had he come up with this?
“Storm clouds,” he continued as he stroked the inside of her palm. “Brewing with a passion and desire you’re too afraid to feel. Sometimes periwinkle, sometimes almost lavender and sometimes a sultry gray. Right now though, they are definitely–”
She pulled her hand away and scooted back in her chair. Thoroughly aroused, she squeezed her thighs tighter in an attempt to bury the spark.
“You’re full of it,” she said. “My eyes don’t change colors that much and even if they did, you wouldn’t notice.”
“What makes you say that?” He leaned back in his chair, taking the two back legs to its haunches, something they both used to get in trouble for when they were kids.
She shook her head and didn’t answer. The touch of his warm mouth on her fingers still burned in her core.
“I always notice your eyes.”

Guest Post: Meet Harriet, from Knights Vampire by Kryssie Fortune

Hi, Kryssie Fortune here. I’ve dropped by to introduce you to the heroine of my latest book, Knights Vampire. She’s just short of six foot tall, and she struggles to control both her weight and her temper.

Over to Harriet: 

 

Hi. Don’t you hate being overweight? I know I do. I’ve tried every damn diet out there—and just look at my butt. Sorry, I should introduce myself. I’m Harriet Martindale, the new archivist at Whitborough Castle and I’m ten pounds over weight. Now I sound like I’m attending an AA meeting, but I really am addicted to food.

I thought once I settled into my new job, I’d be able to stick to low calorie foods, or maybe low carb, but the anxiety’s getting to me. I can’t shake the someone’s-watching-me feeling, and when I’m nervous, I eat…chocolate. Maybe fries. Definitely pasta. Comfort food I suppose.

The castle’s a great place to work, and the people are friendly. I love the sea views, and honestly, I was lucky to land my dream job. I can practically hear you ask why I need comfort food.

Everything would be fine if my two predecessors hadn’t vanished. Losing one archivist’s unfortunate. Losing two is downright careless. I’m really worried about what will happen to the third–me.

I knew something was up when I applied for the job, but I never expected to be the only applicant. Chocolate alert. I’m so anxious I’m gorging on chocolate—and the castle tearooms serve amazing scones topped with strawberries and cream. Mmm. Adictive.

Anyway, I’ve got a whole wall of books to catalog and research, so I’d best get back. I just popped out to buy a few more bars of chocolate. See you later.

 

 

Knights Vampire2

 

Blurb

Betrayed by the Knight Defenders and murdered by his cousin, crusader knight Blaxton de Ferrers rose as a vampire. For nine centuries, he’s preyed on the people he once swore to protect. Gradually, as his emotions leach out of him, he forgets how to feel. Then he meets Harriet.

Harriet Mortlake’s a strong sassy woman who battles her weight and her temper. Her job is to seek out the ancient secrets of the castle that was Blaxton’s childhood home. Instead, she finds the love of her life. When danger threatens Harriet, Blaxton steps in. Harriet and Blaxton, are a match made in heaven. Except… he’s a vampire and to fully claim her, he’ll have to kill her.

Spotlight On: Bridges Burned, by Chris Cannon

Release Date: 01/19/15
Entangled Teen
Summary from Goodreads:
Don’t just fight the system…burn it.
Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking…
But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn’t a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.
Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.

Spotlight On: Ward Against Disaster by Melanie Card

Release Date: 01/19/14
Entangled Teen
276 pages
Summary from Goodreads:
Ward de’Ath should be dead by now. Instead, he’s chasing after a soul-eating creature—that he unleashed— and is bent on stopping her before she slaughters more innocents. Fortunately, Celia Carlyle remains by his side, a nobleman’s gorgeous and deadly daughter, who is…well, dead.


Celia claims she’ll champion Ward wherever he goes, even when she thinks his quest is hopeless. He can only hope her pledge comes from her heart, and not because she’s bound to him through his magic.



When they enter Dulthyne, they stumble upon a dark power that threatens the entire town. Ward, with his unreliable necromancy, is determined to help but finds himself ensnared in the lure of white-hot magic…blood magic he struggles to resist. But if Celia’s love is a lie, it might just doom his soul to the dark arts forever.

About the Author
I have always been drawn to story telling. In fact, I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t telling a story in my head or on paper. In grade school, we had journal writing time which I turned into story telling time, weaving tales of magic and adventure that mimicked the fairy tales and myths that I loved to read. It was there, with the help of two very special teachers, that I nurtured this love and started my journey as a writer.

I write fantasy, paranormal romance, and everything in between, seasoned with a good dash of adventure and mystery. Join me on my tales of magic, adventure, and romance.
