New Release + Blog Tour + Excerpt: Surrender by Rachel Van Dyken

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken comes the next standalone rockstar romance in her Seaside Pictures series…

Surrender is now live!

I had his posters on my wall when I was sixteen and when I accidentally got pregnant in high school—his was the face I dreamt of when I closed my eyes at night.

Now, over twenty years later, that dream’s turned into a reality.

Not only is Drew Amhurst in my tiny town of Seaside, live and in the flesh…

But he’s mentoring my rockstar son.

Drew says he’s mine for a week.

And he made me three promises.

“No strings attached.”

“No falling in love.”

“It’s only seven days.”

He’s confident that he can help me rediscover myself both in and out of the bedroom, and I’m confident that he’s too arrogant for his own good.

And at the end of seven days, he swears he’ll walk out of my life the way he came into it.

The only problem is, the more I get to know him, the more I want to surrender the last pieces of my heart and beg him to stay.

Excerpt:

He rested his chin on my head as his arms slid around the front of mine, and then he slowly turned me toward the shoreline. The sun had painted the sky in streaks of purples, pinks and oranges as it slid toward the ocean. I’d never paid much attention to sunsets, but the combination of brilliant color in the sky above and intoxicating male behind was showing me what I’d been missing. His body was hot against mine.

“Thought you might want a minute after digging so hard.”

With the sun setting, it should have been growing cooler, right? But here I was, my entire body on fire. “Are you mocking my hyperfocus?” I asked, unable to keep the wobble out of my voice.

Pressed against my back, his chest rumbled with a laugh. “No, actually, you just looked so damn cute and were concentrating so hard that I felt guilty for staring at your ass and decided, rather than staring, I was going to do something about it.”

I frowned. “And what did you do?”

“I’m doing it now,” he rasped, his lips next to my left ear. “I’m holding you and watching the sunset.”

Stiffening, I swallowed hard. “Oh.”

“Don’t get tense.” He continued his assault on my senses as his lips roamed down my neck. “I just want you to enjoy yourself. No pressure. I’m not going to suddenly strip you naked against the sand and propose, all right?”

Though my emotions still churned, I exhaled.

“Plus, I mean, I left the ring at home so—”

I drove my elbow back, connecting with his stomach. He let out a grunt and then laughed again.

His teasing made me smile, but it was his warmth that had me feeling safe, as if maybe, just maybe, I could let loose a little bit and simply enjoy the wind on my face, the way his body wrapped around mine protectively — something I’d never once in my life experienced, not even when I had been married. Maybe I could enjoy the laughter around me and not constantly wonder where it all had gone wrong in my life, how I’d been brought to this moment in time — almost forty, with kids nearly grown — wishing I could have at least once experienced the sort of romantic love people wrote songs about, fought for, maybe even died for.

The sun finally disappeared below the horizon, blanketing us in dusk, and the temperature immediately dropped a few degrees.

I didn’t want to move, but I knew we needed to build a fire, so I reluctantly started pulling away only to have Drew keep me locked in place. “I’m sorry. I wasn’t finished watching.”

Huh? Confusion clouded my mind, and I shifted to get a look at him, but he held me in place. “But… the sun set already…”

“You think I was watching the sun the whole time? How adorably wrong.” His nose trailed down my neck up and down, and then his teeth nipped my ear, causing shivers to erupt all over my skin. “I was watching you watch it, and I’ve never seen anything so awe-inspiring as a gorgeous woman watching the sunset for what seems like the first time.”

Tracey’s Review

 

SURRENDER, a House of Sin prequel novella by author Elisabeth Naughton, is packed full of action, passion, and intrigue galore. Part of the 1,oo1 Dark Nights series, SURRENDER is a tasty treat, short but sweet, and guaranteed to keep you flipping pages.

SURRENDER is my first foray into House of Sin world, and I am actually really glad. I didn’t know that it was a prequel when I picked it up, but this book is the perfect introduction to these characters and the circles that they travel in.

Marco and Felicity have chemistry in spades, and that she is also smart and successful in her own right made me like her even more. The two of them just really click from the get-go, and I am interested to delve deeper into the series to see how their relationship evolves.

SURRENDER is a quick but very well-written read, and I enjoyed it very much. As a fan of romantic suspense, I would recommend it without hesitation, and look forward to reading more in this series.

ABOUT ELISABETH NAUGHTON:

Elisabeth Naughton is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Elisabeth: “I was never one of those people who knew they wanted to be an author at the age of six. I didn’t have imaginary friends. I didn’t write stories in my journal or entertain my relatives by firelight after Thanksgiving dinner. For the most part, I was just a normal, everyday kid. I liked to read, but I wasn’t exceptional at it. And when my teachers complimented me on my writing abilities, I brushed them off. I did, however, always have a penchant for the unique and absurd. And as my mother told me all throughout my childhood, I should have been an actress—I was a drama queen before my time.

“Years ago, my husband bought me Scarlett: The Sequel to Gone With The Wind. If you ever saw the book, you know it’s a long one. I sat and read that thing from cover to cover, and dreamed of one day being a writer. But I didn’t actually try my hand at writing until years later when I quit my teaching job to stay home with my kids. And my husband? After that week of reading where I neglected him and everything else until I finished Scarlett, he vowed never to buy me another book again. Little did he know I’d one day end up sitting at a keyboard all day drafting my own stories.

“My writing journey has not been easy. I didn’t just sit down one day, decide I was going to write a book and voila! sell my very first attempt. As most authors will probably agree, the path to publication is filled with hours of work, pulling all-nighters I thought I’d given up in college, sacrifices, rejections, but a love I discovered along the way I just can’t live without. Instead of a big, thick book to read by lamplight (I do read much smaller ones when I get the chance), I’ve traded in my reading obsession for a laptop. And I’ve never been happier.

“I’m one of the lucky ones. I have a wonderful family and fabulous husband who put up with my writing—and obsessive personality—even when life is chaotic. More than once my kids have been late to swimming or baseball because I needed just five more minutes to finish a scene. Their support and encouragement mean the world to me. I also have amazing friends and a support network I couldn’t survive without. So to all of you out there who have encouraged me along the way, sent me emails and fan letters, phone calls and congratulations, I just want to say, thank you. You make this whole writing gig that much more enjoyable. I truly wouldn’t be here without you.”

Synopsis

Passion burns fiercely hot between Ella Ferguson and Kayden Wilkens, the man who held secrets and lies in his hands, and then allowed them to fall into hers. But even though he has become her anchor–helping her recover from amnesia after finding her unconscious in an alley, and allowing her into his secret world–all is not what it seems. Kayden still has secrets, and pieces of Ella’s past are still shrouded in the darkness of her mind, while the powerful man who hunts her will not stop until she is his. In this final, explosive novel in the Careless Whispers series, Ella discovers that while her life with Kayden didn’t begin in that dark alley…it could easily end there.

Tracey’s Review

And, here we are, at the end of the twisting, turning, action-packed, passion-filled ride that is the Careless Whispers series by author Lisa Renee Jones. I’m a little sad to see it end, but, what a journey it has been.

In this third installment of the series, Ella’s memories of a murky and dangerous past become more and more clear, and revolve around a man who will do anything to obtain the things that he wants. What he wants, along with one of Ella’s still-emerging secret, is Ella herself. With the help of Kayden and the Underground, as well as another surprising ally, Ella is finally able to put all of the pieces together, and bring everything full-circle.

SURRENDER is a fast-paced read, dark, mysterious, and rife with danger, passion, and edge of your seat intrigue. Lisa does a fantastic job of tying up all of the loose ends, bringing in characters from her Inside Out, the books where we first met Sara, as well as her and Tall, Dark, & Deadly series, and giving Ella and Kayden the ending that I’d been hoping for. 5 delicious stars for this book, and, while I’m sorry to see this story end, I cannot wait to see what Lisa has in store for us. I cannot recommend the SURRENDER and the whole Careless Whispers and Inside Out series enough. My recommendation? Start at the beginning and savor this amazing group of characters.

About Lisa Renee Jones:

lisa-renee-jones-headshot-275New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed INSIDE OUT series, which is now in development for a television show to be produced by Suzanne Todd of Team Todd (Alice in Wonderland). Suzanne Todd on the INSIDE OUT series: Lisa has created a beautiful, complicated, and sensual world that is filled with intrigue and suspense. Sara’s character is strong, flawed, complex, and sexy – a modern girl we all can identify with. I’m thrilled to develop a television show that will tell Sara’s whole story – her life, her work, her friends, and her sexuality.

In addition to the success of Lisa’s INSIDE OUT series, she has published many successful titles. The TALL, DARK AND DEADLY series and THE SECRET LIFE OF AMY BENSEN series, both spent several months on a combination of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling lists. Lisa is presently working on a dark, edgy new series, Dirty Money, for St. Martin’s Press.

Prior to publishing Lisa owned multi-state staffing agency that was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by the Dallas Women’s Magazine. In 1998 Lisa was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.

Bind me with love

Sally Owens was content to spend her life hiding in plain sight, as long as no one got too close or tried to wrestle the reigns away from her that is…

WLK Author Bio

Sarah Marsh - Logo

The Coalition Mates series is a science fiction romance with a liberal amount of humour thrown in, my goal with these books was to create something light and fun, with a good bit of grumble and grunt… who doesn’t enjoy that right?

I’ll tell you a little about myself before the book excerpts. I live in British Columbia, Canada; I have all my life. I went to culinary school and studied Pastry Arts, working as a Pastry Chef in Vancouver for five years. But the commute into the city got to me and I had to change careers back to an office. I still work full time; I now work for a sporting goods wholesaler in accounting…which is where my twitchy creative side began to get restless…and as my Baba used to say, “Idle hands are the Devils playthings.” Or in my case, idle hands get me into all sorts of trouble; so I go a little bananas on the hobby side of things. I still love to cook and bake, I do a large amount of recipe creating and the boys at work certainly appreciate being sacrificed as taste testers. I am also a stress knitter, to the point that I had to open my own Etsy shop to unload some of the scarves I make. Realistically there’re only so many scarves a gal can make and keep for herself before people start to judge you…. I also paint when the muse hits me, mostly abstract in acrylics. I love to garden and grow things, have a weakness for all animals, and an un-natural obsession for making jam. I literally made 24 different kinds of jam last summer, it’s a bit of a problem….but there’s just so many different kinds you can create! Who am I to say no to see what Tiger’s Blood jam would taste like? (it’s strawberry, watermelon and coconut by the way….and it was AMAZEBALLS.)

I’ve always had a love of reading, science fiction and paranormal genres have always fascinated me, so once I found myself addicted to romance novels it really only made sense that the sci fi romance genre drew me like a moth to a flame. I only started writing about a year ago, it took me a long time to get Sarah’s Crew to the point where I would let someone else read what I was writing, let alone send it into a publisher. But eventually I did and after one fairly nice rejection I moved on and found Siren. I’ve been so impressed at how supportive and helpful all the other Siren authors have been through this entire process, I’m a little on the shy side so the social media and marketing part of the writing process has been intimidating to say the least. My goal is to keep working on my writing skills and to hopefully improve with each book, and I hope that anyone who reads them enjoys the world that I’m trying to create!

ARC Review: Surrender by Violetta Rand – Devil’s Den Series – Book 1

8112J9LzL+L._SL1500_Surrender

 Devil’s Den Series – Book 1

By Violetta Rand

4bee0-add-to-goodreads-button31

Synopsis

Fans of Abbi Glines will adore Violetta Rand’s novels about strong-willed women who must fight to survive—and the men who love them. Welcome to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where the air is heavy with desire . . . and sometimes dreams come true.

Ever since her mother kicked her out, twenty-year-old Robyn Gonzalez has been working the poles at the Devil’s Den, saving up to finish college and travel the world. With only her wits and her gorgeous body to rely on, Robyn has learned to be independent—fiercely independent. She’s never been tempted to let a man distract her from her dreams . . . until she meets the dead-sexy Garrick Dempsey.

The club’s new head of security, Garrick had walked away from a career as a mechanical engineer to return to his roots in Corpus Christi. He hadn’t planned on getting to know someone like Robyn, with her sinfully sweet combination of vulnerability and strength, at the Devil’s Den. She acts tough, but only because she’s been hurt. Soon Garrick knows he will do anything to win Robyn’s trust. And if that means surrendering to the red-hot chemistry between them, all the better.

Tina’s Review

Alternating POV format. The characters are good, enjoyable even, but seemed a little porous. It has a fairly unique plot, more so than many I’ve read lately. Interaction and dialogue was, for the most part, believable. The plot layout had a lot of potential and was great in some aspects, but felt thin and even gaping in some areas. I would have liked to see a more solid and cohesive tie-in between their education and upbringing to their present lives, there was just not a solid enough reflection for me to truly feel connected with the characters or story. It wraps up tidily. There is some minor predictability, but not too much where it would ruin the overall effect. The overall concept was intriguing, but the execution was a little too busy and loose. Above average read, but not quite great.

Club X Series- Book 2

By K.M. Scott

Synopsis

Stefan March lives for a good time. Born into wealth, he sees everything in terms of what he can have, especially women. So far, life has denied him nothing and no one. When he meets his newest bartender, he instantly knows who his next conquest will be, but Shay’s not like the usual women he collects. To get her, he’ll have to be more than just the player he’s always been.

Shay Callahan is beautiful, determined, and intelligent. She’s got plans for her life, and they don’t include getting sidetracked by a man, and certainly not her wealthy player boss. Her job at Club X is for one thing—money to fund her education—but if she can make Stefan March see he’s not God’s gift to women, all the better. She never expects to find out there’s more to him than meets the eye.

As different as day and night, can these two see past who they think they are to find love?

Michel’s Review

I have to admit that I have never read any of K.M. Scott’s books. When the blog tour for Surrender-Club X came through my email, I was very intrigued with the blurb. I am always looking for new authors to add to my “must buy” list. K.M. Scott is undoubtedly on that list! I loved Surrender- Club X! It can be read as a stand alone novel or in series order.

The Club X series is based around three brothers that own a club where fantasies can come true. Stefan March is the youngest of the three brothers and the one with the most sullied reputation. He has earned the reputation of being a man whore that uses women without remorse. His older brothers are usually left to clean up his messes and make restitution for his escapades. His messes don’t stop him from moving on to the next woman, the next sticky situation, and the next notch in his belt. After all , he knows his looks and charm can land him any woman he wants whenever the whim hits him. He is a bad boy through and through and makes no apologies for it. He has never been turned down and always has his next target in sight. That is until Shay Callahan comes to work at Club X as a bartender. She wants nothing to do with Stefan. She is immune to his charm and good looks. She has her own agenda to focus on and that does not include the man whore boss. With quite a bit of taunting from his brother and a huge dose of sibling rivalry, Stefan has made Shay his next mark. He will do anything to win and show up his brother. The chase is on.

Shay Callahan is a smart woman. She has taken the bartender job at Club X to make enough money to fund her continuing education abroad in microbiology. She doesn’t have the inclination or the time for a self proclaimed man whore. She knows the game well. Stephan’s cockiness and arrogant attitude rub her the wrong way. She wouldn’t mind bringing Stefan down a peg or two and show him how the real game is played.

From the moment these two meet there is combustible chemistry between them. The game is on. As each player makes their move, the sexual tension escalates. The rapport and banter between the two is entertaining, witty, downright sexy, and challenging. It makes one wonder who is playing who.

The more these two are together the more bonded they become. Shay begins to see the true Stephan that he keeps hidden from the world. She sees a man that is much more than what meets the eye. Stephan finds that Shay is the one woman that can touch his soul like no other. These two will have to let go of their agenda’s and give their hearts to one another in order to win the big game.

K.M. Scott did a great job with Surrender -Club X. The story was fast paced, super sexy, with larger than life characters, entertaining dialoge, and panty dropping romance.

I highly recommend Surrender-Club X. I am looking forward to the next book in the Club X series!

Synopsis

Julie Keaton had everything—she had a new career in a new city and, more importantly, a bright future with fiance, Jason Sherman. That is, until the day she discovered that he had been killed in Afghanistan. In one moment, her life changed, as everything she’d hoped for died along with him.

Years later and Julie still feels the aftershocks of Jason’s death. She is no longer the same adventurous, open girl; now she wears armor around her heart in order to protect the most important thing in her life—her son.

But when Julie meets the mysterious Neal, she starts to feel the smallest flicker of hope, as what began as a fling quickly becomes something more. Neal is the first man since Jason’s death to break down her armor and make her believe again. But when she discovers the secret he’s been keeping, she has to ask herself: can she surrender to a future with Neal or will Jason’s death forever tie her to the past?

Michel’s Review

Surrender is the latest release in the Disarm Series by June Gray. This novel can be read as a stand alone book or in series order. If you have not read the Disarm Series I would highly recommend this series. June Gray writes an adult romance that is emotional, sensual, and realistic. Her characters are dynamic strong people that are making the best of their lives the only way they can. They learn the true meaning of love, what is important in their lives, and grow as individuals. They are very easy to relate to. Each book flows beautifully and keeps the reader engaged to the very last word.

Surrender is a beautiful love story. It is about learning from past mistakes, moving forward in life, and learning to love unconditionally.

Julie and Jason were in a serious relationship. She was pregnant with his child when he was killed in Afghanistan while serving in the military. Julie is having a difficult time with her grief. She has a lot of regrets because she never told Jason how she really felt. She never told him she loved him. Jason accepted her for who she was and never let it hold him back from telling her how much he loved her. Julie regrets that Jason died not knowing how she really felt.

When she goes to Dallas for Eliza and Henry’s wedding , she meets a surfer on the beach. These two will stumble into a relationship that will be emotional and a true test of their spirits. Julie will have to learn to let go of her fears, express her true feelings, and trust destiny.

Neal is a carefree spirit. He lives in hotels, does freelance work as a computer programmer, and moves from place to place. He is a former Air Force vet that is still in the reserves. He doesn’t fear death and embraces life with open arms. He’s a firm believer that you have no control over your destiny. Death is part of life.

Julie has problems with Neal’s attitude towards life. She is fearful of losing another person that she loves. When she learns about Neal’s hidden secrets it gives her the perfect excuse to pull herself back and protect her heart. She does everything to push Neal away until she finds out that he has been called for another tour of duty. She is going to have to face her deepest fears. Can she overcome these fears and let Neal know how she really feels? Can she give Neal her heart knowing he may not return? Is love worth it? Can she get a message to Neal in time?

This book was so emotional. Both of the characters had valid reasons for living their lives the way they did. When destiny brought them together, it was for a purpose. Together they could overcome their fears, their shortcomings, and become better people. They learned that what is in the heart is the true meaning of happiness. They learned to live life every single moment with love.

I highly recommend the Disarm series by June Gray. It is superb. Surrender is another fantastic addition to this series.
