I have one ARC left, set aside for a blog contest and it’s time to give that ARC away.

Time heals all wounds

Eager to put a dark, troubled past behind her, Trinity Ewing buys an old house that will make the perfect refuge for her and her young son once renovations are complete. The last thing on her mind is finding someone new…but the contractor she’s hired is an irresistible distraction—and Trinity can’t help but fantasize about all the business they could be doing behind closed doors.

So does one man’s touch

Noah Benningfield thought he’d put his demons behind him. But the moment he lays eyes on Trinity, the temptation he feels is too powerful to deny. Soon the attraction between them explodes into something neither of them could have imagined. But their desire will be put to the test when a shocking local murder has them dodging danger at every turn. Can the beautiful and damaged Trinity trust someone like Noah, whose own past is as haunted as her own? The only thing she knows for sure is that she can’t live without a man who makes her feel this good—over and over again…

 

Noah couldn’t help it.  While she was still laughing at him, he closed his mouth over hers.  The need that had tormented him for so long threatened to drive him insane and all he wanted was to lose himself in her.

Spreading his hand out over the small of her back, he fisted the other in the golden silk of her hair as her laughter faded away and her mouth opened for him.

There was hunger here…and need.

It would be easy, he realized.

Too easy to get lost in her. In the sweetness of her kiss, the warm strength of her body.

She was lean and limber against him, all those curves pressed tight to his.  He had to fight the urge to let his hands roam over all her, to learn every single inch, to learn her by touch, by sight, by taste. His cock pulsed against her belly and she kept moving against him.  He had an overwhelming need to pin her against the nearest flat surface and just rock against her until he exploded.

Her chest moved in ragged, uneasy bursts against his own.  The soft, sweet curve of her breasts pressed against him as she leaned in, wrapping her arms around his neck. The tight, hard points of her nipples scrapped against him and he thought he was going to go out of his mind.  A whole new sort of temptation—one he hadn’t had to deal with before.  Not like this. Never like this, because he was pretty certain he hadn’t ever wanted like this…

All because of a kiss.

Her tongue moved against his, stroking along the curve of his lip before venturing into his mouth and Noah felt the muscles in his legs start to tremble. On a ragged breath, he tore away from her and pressed his brow to hers.

“So.  Again…I think I’ve made my case pretty clear.  A date isn’t a bad idea.  Does tomorrow at eight work for you?”

A CRY IN THE WOODS

The scream Lena Riddle hears in the woods behind her house is enough to curdle her blood—she has no doubt that a woman is in real danger. Unfortunately, with no physical evidence, the local law officers in small-town Ash, Kentucky, dismiss her claim. But Lena knows what she heard—and it leaves her filled with fear and frustration.

Ezra King is on leave from the state police, but he can’t escape the guilty memories that haunt his dreams. When he sees Lena, he is immediately drawn to her. He aches to touch her—to be touched by her—but is he too burdened by his tragic past to get close? When Ezra hears her story of an unknown woman’s screams, his instincts tell him that Lena’s life is also at risk—and his desire to protect her is as fierce as his need to possess her.

FYI, I think the pricing is restricted to the US. These are set up by my pub and I have no control over it…save for the UK. I retained ebook rights in the UK and it’s territories and I did knock that price down on IF YOU HEAR HER. It will take a day or two for it to take effect, but then it should show up for the equivalent to .99. Wish I could do the same for all territories, but that decision is out of my hands. Thanks for understanding…

Burn For Me

 

Blackness wrapped around them, a sheltering embrace as his body moved over hers.

His hunger had an edge tonight.

He’d come to her late, appearing in the darkened doorway of her room and she’d barely had a chance to catch her breath before he was there, strong hands slowly pulling away the covers and then the mattress gave way under his weight.

Now, he buried his face against her neck as he muttered her name.

She gasped out his and had to bite back the words she knew he wouldn’t want to hear.

snippet!

The bottom of his stomach dropped away as she froze and went white—white as death itself.

“Trinity?”

“Noah…”

Her voice broke.

Following her gaze, he found himself staring.

It took his mind a minute to process it—another to adjust. All the while, in the back of his mind, he heard the echo of a familiar voice…just a ghost by now, but one that haunted him for a long, long time.

“Trinity.  You’re sure you’re not hurt?”

“Nuh…no, no.”

He nodded.  “Then move back, now,” he said, his voice taut.  Pulling the flashlight from his belt, he peered into the dark maw, still staring at what Trinity had seen.  “I’m coming down.  I’ll boost you out and you can get my ladder.”

Trinity was whimpering by the time he got down there, carefully, unwilling to take his eyes off the gruesome discovery.

He touched her shoulder and she hurled herself at him, burying her face against his neck.

He didn’t blame her. He didn’t want to look, either.

But he couldn’t look away.

Nothing could make him look away from the odd, almost mannequin-like display stretched out on the dirt floor.  It’s not real, some part of him thought.  It couldn’t be real.

Parts of it were nothing but bone.  That wasn’t the worst.  The worst were the almost flesh-looking parts, bits that looked a strange, greyish-white.

“Tell me that isn’t a person,” Trinity said, her voice low and soft.  “Please tell me it isn’t.”

Noah wished, more than anything, that he could do that.

Instead, he just cupped his hand over the nape of her neck.

In the back of his mind, he heard the words… Noah, just trust me

This is the first full length book in the Secrets & Shadows series coming from St. Martins. Book 1, Deeper than Need is due out in June. :)

It’s romantic suspense.  All the stories are connected… kinda like the Ash series.  You’ve been warned.

New RS series…Secrets & Shadows

Kindle

So I’ve been tweeting/FBing about my current project, a new romantic series for St. Martins. Those of who keep emailing and asking…I loved the Ash books, are you doing anything else like it?

Well…kinda sorta.  :)

The Secrets & Shadows series is another romantic suspense series, set in a small town.  Not quite so fictional, though, although I completely tear up the town.  I based in a Madison, Indiana, an area just about an hour or so from my neck of the woods.

There are three novellas that will be released in ebook, and then after that, three books.  The novellas, Burn For Me, Break For Me, and Long for Me revolve around the Bell siblings. They’ll start releasing in the spring of next year.

The books are Deeper than Need, Sweeter than Sin and Darker than Desire.  The first one will release next summer.

I’ll have covers for the novellas soon and I’ve gotten a look at the first book’s blurb…so more info is forthcoming.

Here’s a look at the first novella.

Burn for Me

Blackness wrapped around them, a sheltering embrace as his body moved over hers.

His hunger had an edge tonight.

He’d come to her late, appearing in the darkened doorway of her room and she’d barely had a chance to catch her breath before he was there, strong hands slowly pulling away the covers and then the mattress gave way under his weight.

Now, as his cock swelled inside her, as one palm cupped her hip and angled her up to meet each driving thrust, he buried his face against her neck as he muttered her name.

She gasped out his and had to bite back the words she knew he wouldn’t want to hear.

Tangling her hands in his hair, she arched and whimpered as heat blistered and pleasure consumed her.

“Tate!”

He surged against her, harder. Faster.

She climaxed around him, muffling her sob against his shoulder.

His mouth covered hers, swallowing down that ragged, breathless sound.

Then he stiffened, coming inside her.

 

* * * * *

 

She wanted that purse.

Ali Holmes didn’t covet a lot of things, but as she told stood behind the counter of The Madison Pizza Company, she decided she was going to let herself covet that purse.

It was a safe obsession. Vivid, murder red, butter soft-leather. It cost almost as much as she made in a week—it would have to.  It was a Coach purse.  She had an eye for those things, mostly because she obsessed over them.  Drooled. Coveted.

Sometimes when she went shopping in Louisville or Lexington, she’d even let herself pet them.

But she wouldn’t ever buy one. How in the hell could she buy a purse like that when she could barely afford to put food on the table?

It was a safe enough obsession, because she knew she wouldn’t ever go and waste money she couldn’t afford to waste on something like a purse, not when her two boys needed shoes, not when she needed to figure out how to fix the roof, and not when she was still scrambling to pay the bills over the appendectomy she had to have last winter.

The owner of that gorgeous red purse stood in the doorway, blinking as her eyes adjusted to the dim light after being out in the bright sunny afternoon.

Ali gave herself another second to lust as she gathered up a couple of menus and tried to not to notice the way somebody was grinning at her.

“If you keep staring at the purse, she’s going to think you plan on mugging her.”

Just the sound of that voice was enough to make her heart skip, and maybe it made her knees a little weak, although she managed not to let it show as she turned her head and looked into the dark brown eyes of one Tate Bell, her other obsession.

He wasn’t so safe.

Lately, she was starting to think she might have to give him up.

He was like too much chocolate, too much wine.  She wanted to gorge on him, but he was oh, so very bad for her.  If she could keep herself to just lusting after him, it wouldn’t be an issue.  Lust was nice. Lust was healthy.  But she’d let herself get lost in him.  Lost herself to him.

Maybe that wouldn’t be so bad, if he could do the same.

But Tate had…commitment issues.

Hell, screw that. Tate had emotional issues.

With a lazy shrug, she said, “Nothing wrong with looking, sugar, right?”

A smile curved his lips.

That smile…damn it, that smile was what started it.  That was why she’d given into him in the first place, and all he had to do was flash her that smile at any given time and it made her want to forget herself all over again.

Forget the promises she’d made herself late last night, as she lay in her bed, with the scent of him still on her skin, while her heart split just a little more.

He might share her bed, but he wanted no part of her heart and she knew that.

She knew she needed to pull away from him.

What she didn’t know was if she could.

You were always on my mind…

He’s too young for the burden he’s bearing…

Fuck.

Did she think he didn’t know that already?

He shoved a hand through his hair, knocking his ballcap off in the process.  He hurled it to the floorboard and turned his head, staring outside as the landscape zipped by.

The view is nice…

Innocuous words.

But what she’d pushed inside his mind…

Damn it.  He did not need that inside him just then.  The knowledge that she felt the same heat he’d felt.  No.  He didn’t need that all, yet at the same time, part of him…

Part of him wanted to grab her, haul her into his lap and just…feel.  Give into what he had inside him, what she obviously had inside her.  Skim his hands up that long, slender back and tangle them in her hair as he feasted on her mouth.

That greedy, selfish part wanted to strip her naked and ride her until the both of them were too drained to even move. That part of him knew just how long it had been since he had a woman, touched a woman, kissed a woman…wanted a woman.  How long it had been since his life revolved around anything beyond watching over Alex, nights spent pacing the house as he fought to make sure the boy was safe, hours spent watching over him.

That part of him wanted to touch her.  That part of him wanted glide his hand through her hair and draw her mouth to his, see if she’d taste as wild as he’d imagined.  She wouldn’t be a sweet and gentle woman in bed, he didn’t think. He’d had sweet and gentle lovers.  She’d be heat and power and passion, and he’d lose himself inside her.

If he could have given into that.

But it wouldn’t happen.

Alex…his focus was, and would always be, Alex.

“How long have you been running?” she asked quietly.

He slanted a look her way and then looked back out the window.  “Too long.”

Four years.  Six months.  Twelve days.  He flicked a glance at the clock, calculated the time change.  Thirteen hours and nine minutes.

Since Alex was eight…the day the boy’s youth and innocence and life was shattered, right in front of him.

The night his mother…

He closed his eyes and tried to stem the flow of those memories.

Please…you must promise…

He was trying.  Damn it, he was trying.

Danger. Deceit. Desire. 

Don’t Walk Away

by Shiloh Walker

Ten years ago, former Army Ranger Ethan Raintree made one hell of choice…keep on lying, or tell the woman he loved the truth. He decided to tell the truth, and she threw him out of her life. He never stopped loving her, not stopped wanting her. Celeste Harper finally had everything she wanted—or so she thought. She’d escaped her past. She’d escaped her demons. But she couldn’t escape herself…or the man she’d left behind all those years ago. Looking into his eyes ten years later, she realizes it’s her turn to make a choice—let go of that pain and take him back. Or walk away…and face a future without him.

Amazon | BN  | ARe | Smashwords

These two short stories contain hot guys, determined women and some sexiness. Please note…they have been previously published, but we did add some new material.

Soooo… the original plan was that we would get it up for pre-order and all that jazz, and then I thought maybe I’d try to get it up for RT…and then…um.  Well.  Best laid plans never work well for us, it seems.

Instead, hey!  We haz book.

Please note, these two stories are not new.  They have been previously released but we did expand them a little.

Kobo, Sony, iBookstore, etc are coming.  Can’t give dates as that depends on when they get the titles uploaded.  Thanks!
