COVER REVEAL ~ US by EMILY ECK

US (L & J Trilogy #3)
by Emily Eck
Publication – July/Aug 2014 


Synopsis

Told from dual points of view, Elle and J must figure out how to bring down an MC, steer clear of flying bullets in Missouri and south of the border, all the while making sure Fernie is out of the line of fire. Elle’s love for J is tested, as is her belief that she will ever find “normal” with the man she loves. 

J is determined to make things right so he can give Elle the “normal” life she deserves. He just has to stay alive to make it happen. With his own personal sun by his side, he knows nothing is impossible. That is, until the bullets are redirected from his head to Elle’s. 

Elle: I held my hand up, showing him the ring he’d put on me. “This is us,” I told him. It was more than a ring. Well, to me it was more. “I promise to love you ‘til the day I die.”

J:”Us, baby. This is us. I’ll love you ’til the sun ceases to shine.”


Excerpt

“What’s wrong? Who did it? Was it the prospect? Tell me what’s wrong so I can fix it.”
I was in kill mode.
Shit.
“He doesn’t love her. Not like he should.” Elle said through heaving breaths, tears streaming down her cheeks.
“Who? What?” I had no idea what she was talking about, but I’d kill the fucker who made my woman cry, a woman who    almost never cried.
“It’s just a book, dear. A very sad and freaking amazing book. Sorry. I didn’t mean to freak you out.”
“I thought you lost the the reader with your luggage.”
“I did. It’s Isabel’s. She let me borrow it. I talked to both her and Fernie. They should still be in their room, though I gotta tell you, you’re gonna have to pry Fernie away from those bikes.” She smiled, wiping her tears with the corner of the sheet.
I watched her put the Kindle down just as I grabbed her to me and buried my face in her hair. 

“Fuck, baby. You can’t do that to me. Someone was about to die.” I inhaled, taking her unique flowery smell into my lungs. I’d never get enough of her scent. Like her pussy, it was my drug, and I’d happily stay addicted.
“I’ll keep the tearjerker books on the backburner for now. How’s that?”
“What’s the right way to love?” Her earlier words came back to me. Was there a wrong way to love? Was I loving her wrong?
“It’s just, well, it’s this couple and the woman has been through so much, yet the man is a jackass. She deserves more, to be loved like she is the sun.”
“You know your my sun, my one and only. The one in the sky doesn’t exist without you. Is that the right way?” Fuck, I sounded like a douche.
“It’s the perfect way. No doubts, darling. This is us, and it will always be us, just hopefully a little less violent soon.”
Fuck.
“You know more violence is coming? It won’t always be like this, but for now…” I trailed off, not wanting to start something in the middle. I had to tell her what I could from church.
“I know.” She grabbed me around my neck and pulled my lips to touch hers. “I know.”
She kissed me gently, but I was still a twisted from my thoughts of killing. I pressed my lips more firmly to hers, taking her lip into my mouth to suck on. A moan escaped her mouth.
“Shit. It’s about to be Barry White up in here, and I’m not trying to have my introduction to your boys start with a porno.”
I laughed, thinking of Isabel and how that was exactly what I listened to in Mexico between Son and Isabel.
“Ok, baby. We can eat, find you clothes, shower, or talk. You pick.”
She thought for a moment.
“Can I grab a shower while you find me some clothes? Then we eat. I don’t know about you, but I’m beat. Maybe we can talk tonight when we’re alone, after dinner? Wait a minute. Are we eating with all your club brothers? I don’t know if I’m up for grand introductions tonight.”
“Speak your mind, woman. I love it. And I love you. I can make all of that happen. Most of the guys have rooms here, but have their own place as well. I’ll send most of them home. Link and Cash will stay, as will the prospect and a couple others. You don’t gotta say shit to them, though. Link and Cash are steady planning, the prospect will do what I say, and the others who’ll hang around, you can meet later. Sound like a plan?”
“Absolutely.”
“You need help in the shower?” I held her away from me a hair and raised my eyebrows at her, already knowing the answer, but asking just in case.
“Not at all.” She wore a shit eating grin. “But I might get dirty during dinner and need to clean up later. Hmmm?”

I planted one last kiss on her and pulled away before it could go too far.

new_alSynopsis

Calum Alexander lived his life one way. With purpose and moderation. Everything was set in place and everything happened according to a plan. That is, until his picture perfect engagement falls apart and his crazy brother Lucas gets him to agree to a night out. Calum is left to fend for himself when Lucas decides to bail and ‘fend for himself’ he will need to. A vivacious and obviously young Livana Payne catches his attention and before he knows what’s going on, they end up talking. By the end of the night, Calum is on fire for the impish girl who’s managed to ignite an inferno within him.

Yes, she’s twelve years younger and the complete opposite of what he’d imagined in his life, but he hungers for her in a way that’s frightening. Drunk and surprisingly out of control, he’s dead set on his need to have her. But the moment he accidentally lets it be known that he’s recently single, Livana is having none of it. There is no way she’s getting involved with a man who just broke up with his fiance. No, they were going to have to wait. Calum’s need for her somehow kept growing. As the days went by and he got to know her more, Livana seemed to be stealing all of his sanity. As much as she wants to wait it quickly becomes obvious to Calum that he’s losing his grip to the monster she’d awakened within him. He’s about to lose control and when he does, he knows there’s going to be nothing gentle about what he’ll end up doing to her.

CR SoonSynopsis

 

You get hurt once; you assume that’s the norm. You see others suffer; you assume that’s the norm, too. At least, that’s what Livana once did. One rough go-around was enough for her. After that, she kept it simple, no strings attached. It was just easier, even necessary. Until she went out one night and met Calum Alexander, a man whose intensity broke through each of her defenses, leaving her vulnerable. Afraid to fall in love, she tries to keep some of her walls up around herself, even as Calum seems determined not to let her. Faced with a man that seems intent on possessing her, Liv knows it’s a mere matter of time before she no longer has a choice.

About the Author

nisabelleN. Isabelle Blanco was born in Queens, NY (USA). At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life.

An avid reader in her teens, her fascination with Japanese anime eventually led her to the universe of fan fiction, which became her on-again, off-again hobby for the next ten years. During that time she amassed a following of fans that, by her own admission, she would never be able to live without. It was those fans who encouraged her to step beyond the fan fiction realm and try her talent in the publishing world.

N. Isabelle Blanco spends her days working as an author, web programmer, marketer, and graphic designer. That is when she isn’t handling her “spawn”, as she calls her son, and brainstorming with him about his future career as a comic book illustrator.

Blog Tour ~ LACEY’S GAME by SHILOH WALKER

Lacey’s Game

Lacey's Game

A novella (about 77 pages)

by Shiloh Walker

Amazon | B&N | Kobo | Ellora’s Cave

Lacey Morgan is fed up and heartbroken. Her boyfriend Brogan is all about control and she’s all about breaking through his barriers. Except she can’t seem to do it. Unwilling to settle for only part of him, she takes off, figuring it’s better that way. After all, half of a relationship is worse than none. She settles in with her best friend, hot and sexy photographer Lou, figuring she’ll lick her wounds and give her heart time to heal.
Finding Lacey gone is a punch to the gut. Finding her with another guy is even worse. She isn’t interested in listening to what he has to say, though. Not unless he’s willing to strip himself bare and give up pieces of himself that died long ago.
Brogan can’t do that. Or so he thinks. Lacey and Lou have other plans, a hot, torrid night, some hot, sexy pictures… Lacey is determined to show Brogan a new way of seeing things.

Manday Hotties – Men in Kilts!!!!

20140706-231051-83451343.jpg

So, this weekend, Rebecca & I went to #RARE14 in Edinburgh.

We had a fab time meeting the authors and it was great to see so many of the girls in the one place!!

One of our friends in Aus messaged us to say there was a hottie in a kilt at the event… Until that point we had only seen the piper and believe me, he wasn’t hot… well, maybe literally ‘cos the sun was shining and he was wearing a bearskin hat but,
in the heavenly sense, he was more grandad material that hottie!!!! 😕

Anyhoo, once we got into the hall and we’re making our way round, we realized who Simone had been talking about – Stuart Reardon was at the event dressed only in a kilt and a pair of white Chucks!! Now, in that S was right, the guy was hot!!!

Long story short, following RARE, we decided for this weeks Hotties post to go with Men in Kilts………
Hope you like our choices!!!! 😉
