Release Day Blitz ~ Roxanne Desired

Title: Roxanne Desired (Book 2 in the Prime Wolf Series)
Author: Gena D Lutz
Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance
Blitz Host: Lady Amber's Tours

Synopsis:
Waking up fur covered and fanged isn't the easiest thing for a girl to deal with. Unfortunately, for Roxanne Delaney, that is her new reality. The only upside is finding herself the bondmate to one hot and sexy werewolf, Nathan Hayes. The downside; learning to adapt to a primal element that craves the rending of flesh and the oh-so-sweet taste of blood. Will this shy waitress-turned-wolf rise to the challenges of this new life—one that is now littered with otherworldly creatures hell-bent on destroying her and the people she cares for? Or will the pressures of a new-found love and difficult battles prove too much for Roxanne to handle?


Author Bio:
Gena D. Lutz lives in the blistering heat of Arizona with her husband and four kids and two very high maintenance dogs, a Chihuahua and Australian Shepard. When she is not busy writing, Lutz can be found watching the classics, like Charmed and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, marathon style. Lutz enjoys reading, riding horses, playing poker and looks forward to the day she can travel the world.

Roxanne Desired:

Ember's Curse:



Excerpt:
I threw the pillow off to the side and jumped out of bed. The small nap that Nathan had forced me to take had done
wonders and I was feeling good as new; that was if you didn’t count the headache quickly forming from Paige’s warm-up music. I walked past the handsome hunk of mine and opened the bedroom door wide. I exited the room without explanation. Nathan didn’t complain, just poked his head around the jam, watching my retreat. I stopped in front of the entryway of the room right next door to ours and began to pound my fist hard against it. When my knock received no answer, I brought my fist up and pounded again. This time, the door flew open, revealing an irate she-wolf. Her body was covered in sweat, a large round stain forming from the neck of her wife beater and expanding out and down in between a pair of firmly rounded breasts. She brought her arm up, her hands adorned with boxing gloves, and wiped the sweat from her hairline.
“What the fuck is it?” Paige spat, the rims of her eyes opening wide when she recognized which wolf was at her door. She looked at me with such rage in her eyes that I thought I would spontaneously combust into flames where I stood. I had to stop myself from going pale faced. I willed that from happening with all my might. I wasn’t going to allow this Alpha wolf to have domination over me. I was way too pissed off for that.
“Show the rest of the house some common courtesy by turning that god-awful music of yours down,” I growled.
Paige jerked her chin up and crossed her arms. “And if I don’t?”
Well hell. That was a good question. What could I do if she decided to slam the door right in my face?
“The music is extremely loud, Paige. How about giving us all a break?” Nathan said from behind me.
I hadn’t heard him walk up. I whipped around shoving my finger at him. I was acting like a crazy person. I knew that. However, for some reason I didn’t give two shits about it.
“I have this handled.” I said with a low growl.
“Hi, Nathan.” Paige purred over me. “I will turn the volume down right away.” She pinned him with a smoldering look, a look that made my fingers tingle in want of ripping those green peepers out of their damn sockets.
“But, only because you asked so nicely,” she added before slamming the door in my face.









SPOTLIGHT & GIVEAWAY- Kilted Desire Series~ A.B. McKinley

KILTED DESIRE - Sands of Betrayal

Book Description

 May 10, 2012
Sensual! Exciting! Passionate!

Scott Maclaren, a strong, Special Forces Scotsman, terribly injured during his tour of
duty in Afghanistan. His journey begins with a broken heart after his wife leaves him for another man during his time in the hospital. Traveling across the Atlantic to visit family, his story now begins.

After years of physical therapy and being alone, things were about to look up. Katie Johnson, a beautiful Ohio schoolteacher, was where his ‘dream’ of passion and love were to become reality. Smoldering embers became a passionate, raging fire between them. A wanting and desire that burned for one another as neither had ever experienced before.

Scott’s love for Katie and her two girls would lead him to great lengths to make all their dreams come true, including a six-month security contract in the Middle East. The money would ensure financial security for life.

The contract was to secure the safety of a young attractive businesswoman, Britney Parnell, who is accustomed to getting what she wants… and she wants Scott. She wastes no time in making her yearnings known. All can see her motives, but Scott. His only thoughts while in Baghdad are to keep her safe amidst terrorist attacks, shootings and bombs exploding all around them…

This sensual, sexy adventure begins with the ultimate betrayal and is filled with action, intrigue, passion and steamy love scenes.

The new version (rewrite) has some enhanced scenes. Hope yer enjoy it! I have recently begun writing book two. Continuing the romance, intrigue and adventure's of Scott Maclaren. Book two will be released late 2012."

KILTED DESIRE 2 - Russian Roulette 

Book Description

 December 13, 2012
After his recent adventures in the Middle East, all Scott Maclaren wanted to do was relax. He looked forward to his new life as a family man.

But, things never seem to ‘go-as-planned’ for the tough Scotsman.

Soon, after his return to the U.S., Scott finds himself catapulted back in to the thick of action. Once again, he is called upon and will need ‘all’ of his Special Forces skills, as he battles new foes.

The excitement and drama heat up, both inside and outside the bedroom in this romantic thriller. This suspenseful sequel is filled with even more action, adventure and passion.



Biography:
I  was born in Glasgow on Valentines day in the early 1970's. Growing up like many Scottish lads I was in

tae most sports, especially football (soccer) and Martial Arts. I left school at age 16 and had many jobs including playing Soccer semi-professionally, being a Kickboxing Instructor and Personal trainer. I joined the army in my early 20's and a few years later tried oot fer the Special Forces. I spent 10 years as a member of the most elite Special Ops unit in the world and completed missions in many countries including Iraq and Afghanistan, often working very closely with Navy Seals and Delta Force. My time in the military was cut short due tae being injured in an aircraft accident. I broke my back and was paralyzed from the waist doon. I was told by the doctors that it was unlikely that I would walk again and tae prepare fer life in a wheelchair. Also at this time, my then wife of 3 years decided tae tell me that she did nae want tae deal with me in my present condition and filed fer divorce. Needless tae say, this was a tough time but I eventually got through it. A few months after the accident I saw a toe on my right foot move slightly, at first I was nae sure if I'd imagined it but a few seconds later I tried tae move it again and it definitely twitched. This was just the start, gradually the movement spread and after nearly 3 years of Physical Therapy, Walking Frames, crutches and braces I was able tae walk again. Lesson here - DINNAE EVER LET ANYONE TELL YER THAT YER CANNAE DO SOMETHING!

I have had tae deal with a lot of hard times in my life, including the loss of family and close friends. I have suffered many serious injuries and even a cancer scare (which luckily fer me was brief compared tae what some people go through). Throughout all of this I always tried tae remain positive and remember that nae matter how bad yer think things are, there's always someone worse off than yer are! I hope my story can be an inspiration tae some of yer.


I am now single, live in North East Ohio and have written 2 Romance books in The KILTED DESIRE series. They are fictional stories but they are based on my real life experiences. I'm also just getting back in tae Personal Training and Martial Arts Instructing as well as posing fer the occasional photo shoot. Plus, my signature line of fragrances Machollister was released in late 2012 and has been popular. I'd love tae hear from anybody, whether they are facing any personal hardships or if they just want tae chat. My contact details are on this page plus yer can follow me on twitter @KiltedDesire.

                        

I love all sports, watching comedies on tv, movies, music (mainly classic rock), reading, writing and meeting new people. If anyone is interested my book links and signature fragrance links are below.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ~ Wrong Kind Of Love

Title: Wrong Kind Of Love
Author: Amanda Heath 

                            Blurb:
The first time I ever saw Caden Harper I’m pretty sure I fell in love.
All that golden hair and pale blue eyes. He was mysterious and covered in paint. I found it endearing and wanted nothing more than to find out all his secrets. I gave that man things I would never give anyone else. He blew it though. Which I shouldn’t be surprised considering he is a womanizer.
So I moved on, well kind of. Jaden Harper wasn’t what I expected. I found myself drawn to him all most as much as his brother. Maybe it’s the fact they are twins or maybe it was the fact I wanted to live on the wrong side for once in my life.
Now I’ve found myself dug deep in this game. Theres no end in sight and I wonder when all the lies I have told will come back to haunt me.
Neither man should know the things I’ve gone through. Neither should trust me. I’m not who I say I am. My past is full of things I won’t ever share.
But where will that lead me when Caden wants nothing more than to consume me? He won’t wake up to see he has the wrong kind of love.
My Name is Grace BreadField and this is my story. 
 
 

♥ GOODREADS ♥

Teaser~
*18 + warning for mature content. 
 
“I don’t know why I let Teagan talk me into coming to this club/bar/whatever. I hate crowds and being surrounded by a lot of sweaty people. I fight way through them looking for her and Declan on the dance floor.
Until this song came on.
You ever had that happened to you? One second you’re minding your own business and a song
comes on and changes your life. It says whatever you’re thinking and feeling even if you didnt know thats what you were feeling.
My hips start to sway to the beat of the music. My hands go straight up in the air. My head rocking, my hair going everywhere.
“Cause you are the piece of me, I wish I didn’t need
Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don’t know why…” comes Clarity by Zedd over this places speaker system.
I feel him with me. His body pressed to me, his arms around my hips.
His lips whispering things in my ear, naughty dirty things. Things only Caden would say to me.
“If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love’s insanity, why are you my clarity?…” Who ever wrote this song gets it. They get what I’m going through.
I’m lost in this sea of people, none of them I know. I still feel the ghost of Caden with me. Its how I know what I’m doing. What pain I’m causing him. What pain I’m causing myself.
I feel like I need him every time I’m no where near him. I wish I didn’t. I’m fighting him
every time I see him. I don’t know why. Our entire relationship was doomed from the beginning yet it fixes me. We are insanity, the way we are together. We shouldn’t work but we do. And I see the clearest when he’s around.
I feel tears falling down my face as I continue to dance. I sing the lyrics at the top of my lungs. I don’t care who hears or sees. I need this right now.
And just like that I feel him.
I stop moving and look up. My face is damp and pulled tight. I don’t care who sees, I don’t care who knows. Its like I finally opened my eyes. I’ve wasted hours, days, months, years…
I run through the crowd to him. My Caden. I’m about a foot from touching distance, reaching for his
hand when Jaden steps in front of me.”-Grace, Wrong Kind of Love

Book Synopsis: 
 Besieged by memories of a brutal abduction, Claire Nichols wakes in an unfamiliar bedroom, within a luxurious mansion. Her recollections have one common denominator, the man she just met, Anthony Rawlings. 
Unbeknownst to Claire, for a very long time, she has been within Anthony’s sights. Many of the pivotal events in her life occurred, due to his sinister manipulation. Every action has a consequence, and his actions result in their chance meeting.
More than a psychological thriller, Consequences is a vivid story of one woman’s struggle to survive incomprehensible circumstances. Every aspect of her being suddenly depends upon the tall, wealthy, dark haired, dark eyed businessman. Anthony Rawlings is known to the world as prosperous, benevolent, and kind. Claire quickly learns that he can also be a menacing controlling captor.
With few options but concession, Claire attempts to earn her freedom, while enduring a hellish existence that truly appears perfect. Persevering tests and trials, she struggles to retain her pure Midwest values and beliefs. Encouraged by memories of a loving upbringing, she gains strength in the simplest of joys: solitude in nature and good in the face of evil.
His is goal in sight, Anthony’s calculated agenda encounters an unforeseen detour. He
becomes captivated by Claire’s beauty, resilience, and determination. The interaction of these two compelling characters instigates strong emotions: fear, anger, love, and lust. Claire and Anthony’s tumultuous journey flows into uncharted waters of intrigue and passion.
Utilizing vivid detail, this 167,000-word novel unfolds like a movie, before the eyes of its readers. From the opening criminal abduction, through twists and turns, to the unlikely romantic thrills, the suspense climaxes as Anthony’s motivation becomes evident.
Anthony and Claire must decide if they will stay true to one another, or allow preceding actions to result in justifiable Consequences.
