When I Was Yours Amazon

Synopsis

“Marry me.”

“What?” I stared back at him, unblinking.

He moved closer, taking my face in his hands. “I love you, Evie. I look into the future, and the only thing I see clearly is you. Marry me.”

What’s an eighteen-year-old girl who was madly in love with her nineteen-year-old boyfriend say?

Of course, I said yes.

Twenty-four hours later, I married Adam Gunner at a Vegas chapel to the sounds of “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi. Not the best omen. I get that now.

Then, exactly one week later, I left him. I walked out, leaving behind my wedding ring, annulment papers, and my heart, and he never knew why.

I haven’t seen him since. Not in ten long years.

Now, he’s here, standing before me. Looking at me with nothing but hurt and hatred in his eyes, he wants answers.

Answers I can’t give.

BLOG TOUR ~ Revolution by Adrienne Dunning

A woman on the run. A man devastated by a past marked with tragedy. Neither would ever have imagined their lives would change because of a war fought over two centuries ago.

Nate Emerson has spent the last few years wrapped in grief. It’s a weary burden, but one he has inevitably come to accept. Unexpectedly, Nate finds the walls he built around himself tested when confronted with a stranger at his family’s colonial homestead. Could she be the one to show him how to finally let go of the past?

Meg Grey finds herself at loose ends in the historical town of Yorktown, Virginia. Fleeing from a life she’d sooner forget, she simply wants to remain invisible. Spending a few weeks in an old farmhouse on the boundary of a Revolutionary War battlefield seems like the best way to accomplish that, yet Meg soon discovers that she isn’t alone in the old, neglected home. Sights and sounds that can’t be explained. Shadows and apparitions.

Will the spirits of revolution draw two people together, or will forces beyond their control keep them each imprisoned with their own personal demons.

Adrienne Dunning is simply a Southern gal who has fun playing poorly at golf when she’s not crafting novels.
She loves all forms of expression—writing, dancing, cooking, talking—and does them frequently and with abandon.  She loves creating endearing and feisty characters full of humor and just a little awkwardness to keep them “real”.  Although a possible mystery series is under current exploration, her current works are primarily aligned with the contemporary romance/chick lit genres.  She is heavily active in her local NaNoWriMo chapter, and Seeking Solace, her debut novel releasing April 2015, is the resulting product of a NaNo project.  She lives in coastal North Carolina and uses that region as the setting for many of her stories.

As a high ranking Guardian in the Arkansas Pack, Zane Steele, doesn’t have time for nonsense. He lives a life of control and discipline. But during a drug takedown of a rogue pack, Zane is injected with something and he no longer can control when he shifts. Vulnerable to outing his species to humans he has nowhere left to turn
With no other option, he cuts communication from his Pack Master and flees to try to find a cure before he can face retribution for breaking the Pack Law.
Werewolf, Skylar Wade looks to the future and refuses to focus on her demon laden past. She’s built her own construction company in hopes to one day have enough money to renovate an abandoned building as a safe home for runaway girls who need protecting. As a child she knew the horror of abuse and has made it her life to help other females like herself. But when she finds Zane naked and hiding out at one of her construction sites she is forced to face the memories of her childhood.
Brought together under devastating circumstances, they realize they need each other’s help to face what lies ahead. Can they trust each other to disobey the Pack Law and risk their own lives? Or will the retribution be so severe that it’s each wolf for themselves?

 


EXCERPT

“I know because I’m a wolf too.”

The color drained from his face as he met her gaze. His breathing increased and he looked at the floor.

He shook his head and murmured, “That’s impossible.”

“Why? Because you don’t think I’m pretty enough to be a wolf?” She gritted her teeth. She’d spent her life growing up being criticized because of her red hair and her stick-thin figure. It wasn’t until she’d hit puberty and gotten her curves that the men who hung around her dad had started looking at her differently. Being a female wolf was nothing but a curse.

“That’s not it.”

“Then what is it?” Her eyes narrowed. She wanted nothing more than for him to hit the road.

He met her gaze. Fear crossed his expression, and her heart tugged in her chest. His eyes widened as he took a step closer.

“If you’re a wolf, then why can’t I smell you?”

RELEASE BLITZ ~ Let’s Ride by Rebecca Black

LetsRide-evernightpublishing-JayAheer2015-banner2 

Hello!

Thanks for having me today so I can give my new book Let’s Ride a shout out.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I really love a good, quick read. Busy lives often don’t leave as much time as we’d like for reading, do they? I’m not always so bothered about the backstory, I just want to live vicariously for a moment through the characters as they experience that first rush of lust and desire in a new relationship – I want to get a little hot and tingly 😉
Well Evernight’s Romance on the Go range is all about fulfilling this reading need and my new release Let’s Ride is a part of that.

LetsRide-evernightpublishing-JayAheer2015-finalimage

Let’s Ride started life as an erotic short that I wrote for Masturbation Monday (a meme that I write for most weeks). I saw a black and white photograph of this gorgeous, androgynous woman sat on a kick ass motorbike in just a pair of knickers and this piece of flash fiction just fired out of me. Talk about inspiration!
She looked like she wouldn’t take any crap and she looked very capable of sweeping someone off their feet. It got a lot of great feedback so I decided to extend it and lucky for me, Evernight liked it too.
I’ve read some great books with well written dominant male characters, both straight and gay, but I really wanted to write a recognisable archetype with a twist. There isn’t one good reason on this earth why the hero has to be male. Let’s Ride completely rejects that assumption. Jo is confident, self-assured and has a dominant streak a mile wide, but she’s also a beautiful woman, inside and out. She rides into town and sweeps Mary-Beth right off her feet and into her bed. I love her (I know I’m not supposed to say that because I wrote her, but I really do!) and I hope you do too.

Thanks for reading!

Rebecca


Let'sRideCompleted teaser

So here’s the blurb:

“I would do just about anything to be on the back of that bike when she leaves this place.”
Trapped in a small town life, Mary-Beth always knew there was something better out there. Then Jo rides into town and walks straight into the diner where she works. Sexy, dominant and self-assured, Jo is everything Mary-Beth wishes she could be. Their hot, intense meeting crashes through Mary-Beth’s small world and offers her the promise of a new start.
Will Mary-Beth leave everything behind and ride with Jo towards the chance of a new life?


Excerpt:

Standing by the window, I’m trying to take a lunch time customer’s order but my attention is caught by a bike riding into the gas pump out front.
I hold my breath. She is pretty much everything that I wish I could be. Tall and lean. Enough fuck you attitude to tame a horde of marauding Vikings. She straddles that bike like she was born to it, like she never rode a trike. Like she just stepped right onto all that horsepower and with a flick of her wrists rode off into the sunset, giving everyone the finger as she went.
I would do just about anything to be on the back of that bike when she leaves this place.
She kicks the stand and moves the bike smoothly into its stationary position, slinging her long leg over the back wheel.
I jump a little when our eyes meet through the window. I’m supposed to be taking this guy’s order but I got distracted, seriously distracted. She smirks when her eyes roam over the redness in my cheeks.
Heat has suffused my body; a fine sweat has broken out on my skin and I know I’m in trouble. So much trouble.
I manage to scramble my brain sufficiently to take his order and drop it off at the kitchen. Moving around the bar, I grab the coffee pot to do refills. I can’t stop looking at the door.
Will she come in? Or has she just come for gas?
Please let her come in.
I want to see her up close—I want to see her eyes—that flawless skin. I want to run my fingers over the black shaved hair on the sides of her head, run them through the longer top that she has greased back. I want to watch her eyes close with the pleasure of it.
I hold my nerve when I hear the bell ring over the door. I’m pouring coffee—it really wouldn’t do to spill it and burn a customer. I’m bent over slightly to reach the cup, and my skirt brushes against the back of my legs when she walks past me.
I smile distractedly as the customer thanks me, turning my head to see she has taken a seat at the bar.
Walking over on shaky legs, I smooth my damp palms down the front of my uniform apron.
She sits tall, resting her elbows on the counter. Her legs are open, one heel of her heavy black boots hooked higher on the stool than the other. Her jeans are tight, riding low on slim hips, well worn with a small rip over one knee. A tight white t-shirt stops a few inches from the waistband of her jeans, showing smooth lightly tanned skin that I desperately want to touch.
Her knowing gaze follows me as I move around the bar to face her. I can almost feel a pressure on my skin where it touches me.
“What can I get for you?”
“What have you got?” she asks in a low, husky voice. Her eyes lock on mine. Her eyebrows are like a raven’s wings, perfectly shaped, drawing my attention across her arresting face.
“Pretty much anything, as long as it’s deep fried and unhealthy,” I say wryly.
She laughs. The sound is low and rough and strokes over my nipples.
“Always tastes good, though, don’t it?” she replies. That smirk plays across her mouth again as her gaze drops to my lips. “I’ll just take a coffee for now. Think I’ll get something sweet in a little while…”

BLOG TOUR ~ Jake’s Journal by Janine Infante Bosco


Title: Jake’s Journal 
Series: The Riverdale Series Book 3.5
Author: Janine Infante Bosco

Blog Tour: October 5th thru October 14th



#janineinfantebosco
#theriverdaleseries
#jakesjournal


 
 
In honor of the one year anniversary of the series you can now get your hands on Jake’s Journals.

Read his inner thoughts as he goes through the hardest time in his life. Read his letters to Cara as he pours out his heart and soul to her, through his works and drawings he wished to create. Discover the plans he had for his loved ones and the promises he left behind.


 


 
Dear Luckiest Man in the World,   
 
I should hate you but I can’t. I should resent you but I don’t. I respect you, whoever the hell you are. I know my death will break Cara. It’s inevitable. I can put all the plans in place that I think would help her deal with my death but in the end I will not be able to fill the void my death will leave behind. 
Only you can do that.
 
 It won’t be easy, picking up the pieces of the fractured girl she’ll be when you first meet her. In fact it will be hard as hell because she can be real stubborn. I hope you’re patient, because it’s going to take a patient man to piece together Cara. I promise to you it will be worth it. She may be broken when she comes into your life, but once you make her whole again she’ll be the most amazing thing to ever happen to you. You’ll be thanking me for dropping dead and giving you the opportunity to be the man who makes her happy.
 
Cara doesn’t have family that shares the same blood but she has mine. Don’t pull her away from them. They aren’t your competition, remember that. They are the people who love her. They are her family, the only one she’s ever known so don’t ask her to give them up. I’ll haunt your ass, I swear. It’s important for you to know I am not your competition either. You need to remind yourself that you can’t compete with a ghost. You win. You are flesh and blood I am a memory. You always win.
 
Make her happy. Make her smile. Make her laugh. Make all her dreams come true.
Do you have any idea how lucky you are to have her?
 
Do you have any idea how lucky you are to be the man in her life who gets to spend forever with her?
You are the luckiest man in the world. 
 
I used to be you. I was the lucky one for a period of time. I don’t really understand why I wasn’t good enough or what the hell God had in mind when he decided he was going to cut my time with her short but he chose you for her in the end. I hope you are a smart man who realizes what he has, who cherishes it. Don’t ever let her go.
Love her until the end of time. I promise you that you will die a happy man.   
 
Sincerely, 

The dead guy who gave her to you


 
Dear child with the hazel eyes,   
 
You are a child I’ve seen in my dreams. You don’t exist yet but I can describe you in great detail. I’ve dreamed of you in all stages of your life. I’ve seen your mom hold you in her arms when she first gave birth to you. I heard your first cry in my dreams. I watched you blow out the candles on your first birthday cake. I laughed when you smashed your hand in the cake and then reached for your mom. I saw you wobble as you took your first steps. I was there as you crept down the stairs on Christmas morning, your mom asleep on the couch, waiting to share the magic of Santa Clause with you. I was there watching as you rode your bicycle for the first time. I have seen it all in my dreams. 
 
In my dreams, you are a boy. I don’t know your name but I call you Jake. Guess what? My name is Jake too. I’ll let you in on a little secret, Jake is a good, solid name. Only the strongest, bravest, little boys are named Jake. Ask your mama, I bet she’ll tell you about a Jake she once knew. 
 
You have the prettiest mommy in the whole wide world. But you already knew that, didn’t you? I’ve seen her play with you. I’ve seen her read bedtime stories to you. I also saw her kiss all your boo boos away. You are her whole world. You make her heart full. You are such a lucky child to have her as your mommy. 
 
There was a time when I hoped and prayed I’d be your dad but that isn’t possible. I have never saw your dad in my dreams, only his hands as he let go of the handlebars when you rode your bike for the first time.
 
He is patient, I can tell from the way he guided you on the bike. He waited until he was certain you had the hang of it before he let you ride it without him holding you. I bet he instills responsibility in you. Call it a hunch, but if you’re ever allowed a puppy I’d bet anything your job will be to walk it.
 
You are a beautiful child. You have your mommy’s eyes. In my dreams, I look into your eyes and they are wide with wonder. You have so many questions. Why is the moon so big? Why do I have to go to bed? Why is the sky blue? I see a little mischief in those eyes too and I wonder if you’ll be anything like the Jake you’re named after.
 
You may be a child of my dreams now, but one day you will be the child I look over. I’ll be your guardian angel if they really exist. I’ll always look out for you and do my best to protect you in any way I can. I owe it to you mom. I owe it to your dad too after all, he gave my beautiful Cara the gift of you.   
 
Always Looking Out For You,
 
Jake
