My Sexy Saturday Hop ~ Taming the Country Star ~ #MySexySaturday

MSS_button 250x250

Welcome to the My Sexy Saturday blog hop! This week, writers are joining in with seven words, seven sentences, or seven paragraphs from their works.

This week’s hop theme is Addicted to Love. And Taming the Country Star is all about the way that Kylie and Cole can’t let go, so I’m joining in! Take a moment to read the excerpt below, then HOP to check out the rest of the sexy snippets!

 

http://www.amazon.com/Taming-Country-Entangled-Hometown-Heroes-ebook/dp/B00KK4DORC/

 

He’ll do anything to win her heart. She’ll do anything to keep him away.

Country star Cole Grayson is in town, and Kylie Andrews is less than thrilled. As if months of changing the radio station and tearing down his posters weren’t bad enough, now she has to deal with a town of fans swarming toward the man who deceived her the year before. But when Kylie’s eyes meet Cole’s again, she can’t deny the electric chemistry that drew her to him the first time around.

Cole Grayson is on a mission. Ever since Kylie left him, he hasn’t been able to forget her sweet country smile. After writing a song just for her, he sets off for her hometown to prove he’s not the player she thinks he is. But as much as Cole can’t forget her, Kylie wonders if she can forgive him…

Excerpt

 

“Hey,” he said, pulling up onto the underwater seat hooked to the bar next to hers.

“Hi.” She had barely glanced at him. Something about her had tugged at him. The skin around her eyes looked thin and fragile, and stress lines pulled her mouth tight. Even so, she was quite possibly the most beautiful woman he had seen in a long time.

He needed to see her smile. “I’m Cole,” he said, waiting for the double take of recognition that he had grown accustomed to over the past few years.

“Kylie,” she replied, finally looking up to meet his eyes—but without any hint that she knew who he was. He should have told her right then. He knew it. But the chance to spend time with a gorgeous woman with no interest in his fame or his money had proven too alluring. As had Kylie herself. And by the time he tried to tell her, it was too late.

“Shh,” she said, placing her fingers over his lips. “Three more days. That’s all we’ve got.”

“But you’re on your honeymoon,” he whispered. “Don’t you want to know who you’re spending it with?” Tiny grains of white beach sand spun between his lips and her fingertips.

“I’m spending it with you. That’s enough.” She brushed the sand away and replaced her fingers with her own lips, pulling him down to the blanket tucked back into the secluded beach cove.

Book Boyfriends Cafe ~ Hot for Friday Blog Hop ~ Hot Kiss ~ LEGALLY UNDEAD

BBC+blog+logo+final+white

Welcome to the Book Boyfriends Café Hot for Fridays Blog Hop, where every week, authors post in response to a prompt from the Book Boyfriends Café!

This week, the topic is Hot Kisses. So check out the excerpt from Legally Undead below, then HOP to the rest of the entries!

_____________________________________________

Malcolm wrapped both arms around me and I turned to him, putting my head on his chest and sobbing even harder.

Somehow we ended up lying down on the bed, and then we were kissing–not soft kisses, but hard, demanding kisses. Then Malcolm’s hands were under the blanket, roaming across my body. They felt good–hot and strong and alive.

I struggled to pull his t-shirt off as he lifted his arms and tried to help. I wanted to feel his skin against mine, feel the hair on his chest brush up against my nipples, his stomach pressed against mine. I threw the t-shirt onto the floor, not caring where it landed.

The blankets tangled around my legs, so I kicked them to the floor. Malcolm’s mouth trailed down my throat.

A reluctant vampire hunter, stalking New York City as only a scorned bride can.

Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.

But those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire draining the blood from her fiancé Greg. Horrified, she screams and runs–not away from the vampire, but toward it, brandishing a wooden letter opener.

As she slams the improvised stake into the vampire’s heart, a team of black-clad men bursts into the apartment. Turning around to face them, Elle discovers that Greg’s body is gone—and her perfect life falls apart.

Cover Reveal: From Origins, by Mary Ting

Skylar, Mason, and the other descendants embark a deadly quest to the underworld to confront the evil Hades, who has been plotting to kill off the descendants of all the gods.

On this journey, they soon discover that the ancient gods are not dead as once believed but are held captive in a secret location. In order to save the world from destruction at the hands of Hephaestus, the descendants must set out on a crusade to rescue the gods.

In the process, Skylar learns more about her bloodline and her powers, but there is also a heavy price to pay. The darkest forces known to man are about to return to reclaim their stolen kingdom.

TEASER

Seeing nothing but darkness through door one heightened my awareness, and the mist that slowly crept out like thin layer of clouds, spreading and covering our feet, brought another level of fright. The ground started to shake, then a sound like thunder boomed, getting louder…louder…until it sounded more like a stampede.

My imagination got the best of me as I envision buffaloes charging for us. Roaring sounds burst in the air when a dozen of the Cerberuses tried to charge through at once. I would have preferred the buffaloes, but instead, we got Hades’s guard dogs.

Their glowing red eyes were what I saw first, then their vampire like teeth, and last three heads to a body. With serpent’s heads on the tips of their tales and lion like claws, they looked like they could rip us to shreds as they dashed for us as if we were a gourmet meal.

“Cerberus. I should have guessed.” Zara quaked, standing next to Tara. Extending both of their arms up, they were creating a shied. Blazing light engulfed us.

“You should have guessed sooner, but I don’t think it would have mattered.” Nick’s eyes glowed, ready to fight. “Here puppy, puppy. Let’s play.”

————————————————————————————–

Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

Happy Release Day! Vampyr Genesis: Hunger of the Gods, by J. S. Thorley

http://www.amazon.com/Vampyr-Genesis-Hunger-Gods-Evolution-ebook/dp/B00U1MOENG/

A war-torn city. A new, violent race. A blood-lust that will not be quelled.

3000 years ago, Cassandra and Paris ushered in the dawn of Vampire mythology . . . and the ancient world paid the price.

Cassandra and her cousin Artemis abandoned their war-ravaged planet in search of Artemis’s twin brother Apollo. On Earth, their ethereal beauty and mesmeric personalities makes them gods. But this promised land is far from perfect, and they are thrust into a vicious human conflict, even as they battle their own terrifying new blood lust.

When Paris, Prince of Troy, abandons his post in Greece and runs away with the Spartan queen, Helen, the entire ancient world is thrown into chaos. Can Paris redeem himself, or is all hope lost for Troy and its prince?

This is Homer’s Iliad as you’ve never seen it before . . .

About the Author

I was born and raised in the Baltimore Metropolitan area but my family is originally from Rhode Island. I spent summers in New England with my grandparents, which probably sparked my fascination with Salem, MA. I started writing fictional stories and poems in middle school. In fact I had notebooks and notebooks full of incomplete stories and poems. One of which I managed to hold on to and is safely stashed in a box under my bed. When I was in seventh grade I entered a poetry contest in the back of an Archie comic and won, after that I was hooked on writing after that. Amazingly it took almost two decades to find a voice for my snarky, ass kicking heroine Maurin Kincaide and complete my first length novel. Meeting the love of your life and raising three amazing children together must have caused a rift in time because I still can’t believe it’s gone by so quickly. I’m fortunate to have a loving and supportive family who don’t mind sharing me with all the other people in my head.
