This Regret Release Day Blitz

image photo (27) imagePhoenix has been stumbling through life since her brother Adric's tragic death but after eight years, she is finally piecing what remains together. She has a nice apartment, a steady job and not to mention a fresh new 'relationship' with her childhood friend, Kade Haze. He's the sexy boy next door she never even dreamed of falling for, but can’t seem to stop the pull she feels toward him. Just when life began to make sense again and a feeling of normalcy was on the horizon, Phoenix's carefully constructed walls come crashing down. When walking into the tattoo shop one day, the last thing she’s expecting to see is Kellan Haze, Adric’s best friend no one has seen or heard from since the day they found her brother’s body. He’s nothing as she remembers him as a child, with his wild messy hair, tattoos that cover most of his undeniably sexy body and eyes so intense it makes her legs quiver with one look. The one thing even she can’t deny is the instant rush she feels just by being in his presence. But how can you choose between love and lust when one of these hold a dark secret, one that can crush your world to pieces and leave you gasping for air. Who can you trust when your mind is pulling you in two different directions and your heart has to choose for you? The Haze brothers are sexy, daring and possibly . . . dangerous. This Regret is a story of love, lust, betrayal and danger with an ending that no one saw coming. Kellan Teaser-2 imageThe blast of a .38-caliber revolver sends me crashing to my knees, landing in the road, with gravel digging deep into the flesh of my knees. My hands grip the gritty ground, as if my life depends on it, making my fingers bleed. Who knows, at this point, maybe it does. Even with my eyes closed, I can feel the world spinning around me, my body threatening to give up and lose what control I have left. Tears stream down my horror-stricken face and a silent scream is threatening to form in my throat. It hurts. It hurts like hell. That’s when I hear it. A bloodcurdling scream that makes my blood run cold. Except, it’s not my screaming that is roaring through my ears as I expected. It’s the screaming of a woman. A very angry, hysterical woman. The only thing I can decipher is, “Call 911. Somebody fucking call 911. There’s blood everywhere.” I can hear bodies shuffling nearby, some of them even tripping over me to get away, but I can only process one thought. He’s gone. Please don’t let him be gone. With force, I am yanked to my feet, a large hand smacking me across the face, causing blood to taste on my tongue. I try to focus, but my vision is too blurred to make any sense of who has control of my body and at this point, I’m not so sure it even matters. “This is your fault,” the deep voice growls as I spit blood onto his filthy boots. Narrowing his eyes, he wraps my hair securely around his hand and yanks my head back, hard, while his other hand tightens around my throat, squeezing. “You’re going to pay for this if it’s the last thing I do, you stupid bitch.” He lets go of my neck and shoves me down to the ground so my face is pressed into the gravel, his boot crushing into the back of my skull. Dirt and rocks dig into my left eye, making it even harder to see through the tears. I desperately look for the man that hasn’t only crushed then stolen my heart just to crush it again, but has also replaced a part of me that I thought was long ago lost. Realizing that my search is pointless, I just lay there defeated, feeling half-alive, but mostly dead. “Go ahead,” I whisper. “See if you can hurt me anymore than you already have. I dare you.” My body’s trembling, but I look him dead in the eye anyways. I’m not scared of dying. Not after losing the biggest part of me, my heart. “Losing him will be my last regret.” I shift so that I’m looking at the deep scars that cover his face. They make me sick. He makes me sick. “That and not killing you when I had the chance.” This Regret eBook

Unbearable Guilt Release Blitz

ABOUT UNBEARABLE GUILT
Kane Archer hasn’t always been tormented; he hasn’t always hated himself or been full of rage. He hasn’t always lived his life with an overpowering sense of guilt that threatens to destroy him. There was a time when his life was different. He was optimistic; he smiled and laughed; he loved passionately; he had it all. Kane was content—until the unthinkable took it all away. Two and a half years later and still reeling from his fiancĂ©e’s death, Kane returns to the one place he vowed he’d never visit again—Camden—with the promise to find the men who killed her and bring them to justice, regardless of the cost. Emotionally numb, stricken by guilt, and haunted by the events preceding Aimee’s death, the last thing Kane wanted was to meet someone he connected with; someone who made him feel again. As Kane gets closer to those responsible for Aimee’s death, he is thrown a curveball when he discovers a secret so devastating it rocks his world and threatens to destroy his chance at happiness. Whitney Jareau packed up her life when tragedy struck her family, leaving everything behind. Finally free from the persistent and domineering family that insisted she do the one thing she couldn’t, Whitney found peace in Camden. Two years later, her family wants her to come home and will stop at nothing to get her there. Wearing her heart on her sleeve for Kane Archer, a man so gorgeous it hurts to see the pain he carries, Whitney fights her family and refuses to return home to carry out their wishes. Can Whitney stay strong without giving in to the demands of her family? Can Kane let go of the past and move forward with the woman who brought him back to life? Or, will he walk away from her and carry the burden of UNBEARABLE GUILT

EXCERPT #3
“Yeah, that will do—” Kane said into his cell as he came out of the kitchen, wearing nothing but a pair of black baggy sweats that hung low on his hips, the top of his V showing perfectly and making the ache inside me grow more intensely. He stopped dead when he saw me standing by the door. “Gotta go,” he said and hung his cell up without giving Basil a chance to say anything.
“Hey,” I said, trying to keep my focus on the yellow bag of M&Ms and can of Red Bull he was carrying.
He looked me over then tossed his cell phone on to the table in the dining room, and walked into the living room. “Hey, what’re you doing here?” he asked, sitting down on the couch and putting the M&Ms and Red Bull on the coffee table.
“I just wanted to stop by and talk. Sorry, maybe I should have called.”
He took the black game controller into his hand and pressed a couple of buttons and the screen on the TV came to life.
Video games. Figured.
“If you came to talk to me more about what you said last night, you should just turn around and leave,” he said dryly.
Ouch.
Shit.
“No, I just came to apologize for what I said. It wasn’t fair for me to bring any of that up, especially Aimee, and I just want you to know that I’m sorry,” I said, watching
him for any kind of acknowledgement, but he stayed focus on the TV. “If you ever need to talk or anything, I’m here for you, you know where to find me.”
He didn’t say anything.
He just nodded and kept his eyes on his game. I could see his jaw was tight, like he was clenching it, and his eyes looked as if they weren’t even watching the TV, but just staring at nothing—like he was waiting for me to leave.
Again, ouch.
“Okay, I’ll just let you get back to what you were doing,” I mumbled, then turned around and made my way to the door and pulled it open to leave.
I didn’t hear him get up off the couch, and I didn’t hear him come up behind me until his arm reached out over my head and pushed the door shut, and then he grabbed me by the hand and turned me around so we were facing one another.
My heart rate spiked and my core vibrated with anticipation the moment we came into contact. I could feel the tiny sparks of electricity igniting and spreading over my entire body and shooting right between my legs, making my pussy throb desperately for him and only him.
I swallowed the breath that was caught in my throat as I looked up at him. His green eyes vibrantly shimmered down at me as one side of his lips twitched then started to curl, as if he could read my mind.
Fuck. Me.
Literally.
Kane continued to look down at me as his hand slid up over my body until his fingers wrapped around the first button of my coat and pulled it open, then did the same with the next two that followed.
My bag fell to the ground as his hands slid inside my coat, his warm fingers softly grazing over my breasts as he moved them over my shoulders and pushed my coat off, and I let it slide down and fall to the ground around my feet.
“Baby,” he said, his voice low and raspy. “You’re not going anywhere.”

Carrie's Review: 
This book was great from page one! I just loved it a lot. The storyline was great, the characters loveable..Whitney was especially endearing and I was able to relate to some of what she was feeling throughout the book. Definitely one to recommend.

Dirty Little Lies Blog Tour

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00005]
Title: Dirty Little Lies
Author: Clare James
Release Date: January 25, 2014
add-to-goodreads-button31
Synopsis
Twenty-nine-year-old Stevie Sinclair has just lost everything: her boyfriend, her apartment, even her ugly bird named Free. (Yeah, she knows it’s stupid name, so don’t start.) But most importantly, Stevie’s lost herself. 
As she shuffles through her days in worn-out Hello Kitty PJs—eating ice cream, sipping wine, and contemplating her next move—a magazine article catches her attention. Blaring black letters read: "How to Get Your Sexy Back in Six Easy Steps."  Stevie studies the article in the trashy magazine like the good student she is and immediately knows what she has to do. With the magazine article in hand, and a bottle of red in her bag, Stevie embarks on a journey to reclaim her life and win back her ex.  Until she meets Gabe Shannon. Gorgeous, single, and on a quest of his own, Gabe introduces Stevie to a lifestyle that is sure to help get her sexy back and then some. If she doesn’t chicken out … (Oh, you know where this is going.)  What follows is a story of self-discovery, romantic gestures, erotic encounters, and following one's heart--even if it leads in unexpected directions.  Portions originally published online as The Club e-series, Dirty Little Lies now has 70% more content, chapters from Gabe's point of view, and a sizzling conclusion to this steamy tale.  


 Carrie's Review: I loved this book from the very first page. I found myself empathizing with Stevie, and I enjoyed the periodic remarks from Free. The plot seemed very realistic and the characters were genuine. I found Gabe to be particularly enthralling, especially when he peeked at Stevie's shoes. 

Both the story and the steaminess factor was great in this book. I highly recommend!

Forgive Me Cover Reveal



Unforseen Heartbeat Book Blitz




Title: Unforeseen Heartbeat (Second Chances #2)
Author: Maureen Mayer
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: February 24, 2014

Synopsis for Unforeseen Heartbeat:

Used… Broken… Confused…

It only took one drunken mistake four years ago for Maddie Harrington to learn that when you fully give yourself over to a man, you should never expect anything in return. Since that night, her views on love have become distorted, believing men would only want her for the pleasure her body could bring them. She in turn finds herself hooking up with random guys but never keeps them around long enough to see if there could possibly be something more.

That is…until Hunter Bryant enters the picture.

When the handsome pre-med student shows up in the right place at the right time, captivating her with his stormy gaze, she immediately pushes him away, thinking he’s no different than any other guy. The deeper Hunter delves into her life, trying to break through her iron-clad walls, the more she begins to question whether she is truly capable of opening her heart up to another man.

Maddie soon finds herself forced to make a difficult decision, one that will forever change both of their lives. Will she shut Hunter out of her life for good, or will she finally open up her heart and allow herself the life she never dreamed she deserved?
