[Book Blast] Harper's Place by Sheryl Winters @WintersSheryl #AmReading #Romance


Harper’s Place
by Sheryl Winters

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:

Harper Grey is fed up with over-bearing men. Her father wants to sell the family hamburger joint to her brother because a woman could never make it successful.

Harper knows she has the same flair for business as her mother, and sexy Navy SEAL Patrick O’Brien dares her to prove it to the world.

When duty calls and Patrick must leave her side, will Harper be strong enough to make her dream a reality?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~



“How would you bring in new business, though?”

I’m amazed that he seems to find our conversation interesting. He’s an audience willing to listen and I’ve not had that in a long time. Damn this crush of mine. It won’t be easy to tame after tonight.

“New menu items, specials, things like that. Start serving dessert, like pies. Easy cook items. With the new burgers I’ve created and a new d├ęcor, I’d open in the summer when the air is fresh and everyone is happy to be out of the snow, hungry for grilled food. I think we could do fine.”

“What’s your hold up?”

“Tony, Dad. It’s complicated.” I shrug. His arm feels good, and I have the overwhelming urge to nuzzle against it. "Did you kiss Amy Parker when you were twelve? She still brags about it." Did I just ask him about kissing? What is wrong with me? Will this mouth of mine never shut up? Stop it, Stop it, stop it!

"That I did, in a closet over at Robert Anderson’s house."

"Ew."

"I was twelve and desperate. You can't blame me. I do blame that stupid soda bottle.  And your first kiss?" There is a challenge in his voice.

"Kevin Monroe at the Klines Movie Theater. He sent me a six-page note the next day about how much he loved me, and I freaked out and dumped him."

"Any regrets?"

I choke back a giggle. "Naw, ‘cept I remember I liked his cologne. It could have been aftershave, but it was nice." It’s not half as nice as the Aramis that Patrick has on. Something about it sends a shiver up my spine that has nothing to do with the zombie waiting in Dad’s office.

"The dark isn't so bad, now is it?"

"I guess not."

Silence surrounds us. The fear that enveloped me seems to disappear.

"Are you seeing anyone?"

"No." It sounds terrible now that I've said it out loud. Like I’m admitting to being a desperate and dateless leper.

"So," he drawls out, "ever thought of dating a military guy?" He squeezes my fingers.

Is he serious?

His fingertip smooths over the rough callouses I've gained from years of hard work. Suddenly my wasted evening of not going out to celebrate is starting to look better. "I think it would depend on which military guy."

"You're killing me. You know that, don’t you?" His strangled tone only sets off a case of the giggles.

"Are you asking me out, Patrick?"

"Trying to, but you're not making it easy.” The challenge is back in his voice.

"I wouldn't mind a date or two,” I manage to squeak out. Breathe, Harper, just breathe, calmly through your nose, out your mouth. Sainted Mother of God, Patrick asked me out! I hit the jackpot! Now all I have to do is not hit him.

[New Release] Since I've been Loving You by #KelliJean


Congratulations to Kelli Jean on the release of SINCE I'VE BEEN LOVING YOU!



SINCE I'VE BEEN LOVING YOU
by Kelli Jean
NOLA's OWN #4

There's a saying that three is a crowd.

With her heart and soul shattered, Alys Stuart suffers in silence for a secret she's hidden from everyone for eight years. 

Xavier "X" Johnson sees right through her facade, and vows to love her and cherish her until his dying breath. Because he understands what it means to have a secret that no one can ever know.

But just as X starts to heal Alys with his love, her secret comes home—in the gorgeous form of Connor MacGregor.

How can she choose between the man who makes her soul soar, and the man who wants nothing more than to give her the world?


PURCHASE YOUR COPY!

Read NOLA's Own Series today!
Books must be read in order! Book 1 is FREE!



MEET THE AUTHOR: KELLI JEAN
Born and raised in Miami, Kelli Jean traded the tropical heat for the arctic. Now she deals with twenty-four hour daylight in the summer, zero sunlight in the winter, and believes the Northern Lights make up for the mind-boggling amount of ice and snow she has to put up with for seven months out of the year. She’s surrounded by mountains and ocean and sheep, and claims her bizarre sense of humor is what keeps her sane.

The insane don’t know they’re insane.

Kelli uses her imagination to create worlds she can escape to from the mundane tasks of everyday life, such as washing the damn dishes and vacuuming up Legos off the floor—and don’t get her started on the mad amount of cat hair on the end of the couch. She gave up on that a long time ago. When the household goes to sleep at night, she writes down everything that happened in her head while doing such tedious chores. But she enjoys living in her own head, so that’s pretty cool.

Technology terrifies her. She can barely turn on a computer, and was completely shocked when she’d actually written a book on one. To this day, she has no explanation for this baffling mystery. It took her three years to realize she can take screen shots of messages and pictures of bearded, tattooed men with her phone. Now that she’s mastered this task, her phone is slowly dying, and she’s nervous that she’s going to have to buy a new one and it will take her another three years to learn how to use it.

he wants is his playboy life. He can’t seem to change their minds.
Emina arrives at the Seaside Escape resort for her bachelorette party. Emina is desperately trying to think of a plan to stop her wedding to a man she does not love, 
but there's more at stake than anyone knows.

Not even a reunion at Highland Bay with his brothers. 
His solution to his unhappiness has always been to run away from his problems. 
When sassy dancer Raven Solis saves Layne from a potentially violent altercation, 
all he sees is the beautiful face, the sexy body,

In other words, a totally unsuitable girl.

will it be too late?

Thirty-two and single, Blake has had his share of women, but he’s never allowed himself to fall in love. He’s not even sure what love means, much less what it feels like. Rejection and abandonment are his worst enemies. It’s a highly-guarded secret he keeps buried.

Anaiah Romance



Blurb:
He’s fighting to forget his past while she struggles to remember hers...

Doctor Josh Parker lives with guilt about his wife’s death every day.
He believes himself incapable of ever loving again, but when a
mysterious woman arrives in the Emergency Room, brutally beaten and
left for dead, he starts to feel something he hasn’t felt in far too long:
hope.

hospitalized. Worse, she has no idea who hurt her or why. Although she’s
uncertain of who she is, she is fully aware of one thing -- she’s falling
for her doctor.

Sometimes, what you don’t know can kill you...

As Josh and Alessa work to solve the mystery surrounding her past, she
soon realizes just how much danger she’s really in, but Josh refuses to
let her face the darkness of her memories alone. With each of them
struggling to put their pasts behind them, theirs is a DANGEROUS LOVE.


Release Date:
March 3, 2015


Book Links:
What sparked your interest in becoming a romance writer?

JODY: I’ve always loved romance. When I was growing up, my mom used to always buy True Story magazine and I’d read them. It never occurred to me to become a romance writer until I started trying to submit my children’s books to agents. When I started actively seeking publication, ideas unfolded and the most natural fit felt like romance. I love happily ever after. I love that moment in a book that makes your stomach dip. When I started writing more, I wanted to write those moments.

KARA: Originally, my go-to genres were mysteries and horror -- Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, etc. So, naturally, when I started my own writing career, I aimed to emulate them. And I failed miserably. lol. No matter how hard I tried, my stories were always heavy on the romance. I took this as a sign and decided to try my hand at a romance novel. But first, I bought a LOT of them and read up in the genre. I’ve been hooked ever since. I couldn’t imagine writing anything else now.

Do you plan all your characters out before you start a story or do they develop as you write?

JODY: I don’t plan them all out. Characters tend to jump into my stories. I’ll know who the key players are, what they want, where they come from and what baggage they are bringing with them. But others sometimes find their way in as the story unfolds. Sometimes the characters that you never knew were going to appear steal the show.

KARA: I usually have a basic idea of who my characters are -- name, age, profession, physical description -- but beyond that, they develop as I write. I am so NOT a planner. At all. For anything. Except doctor’s appointments. I plan for those. But my characters? Nope. They totally rule the roost. I do as they say, when they say.

What type of book have you always wanted to write?

JODY: One that matters. One that makes people smile and feel good. I think I’m writing the books I’ve always wanted to write. Between co-authoring and writing independently, I’m getting a chance to tell the stories that get stuck in my head.

KARA: I’ve always wanted to write a book that takes place around a cause near and dear to my heart: Pit bulls. I know. It sounds kind of corny. lol. But I own two pit bulls. They are so gentle and are so misunderstood. I’d love to write a romance centered around a couple who are as passionate for this breed of dog that I am. Maybe the hero and heroine could both be working at a rescue center or something.

What’s the last movie you watched and loved?

JODY: Oh my goodness! I was just going to say I watched the Avengers not long ago and really liked it and then I glanced ahead and Kara wrote that too! But, I’m also going to add that I love sports movies. So, if the Blind Side, For Love of the Game, The Rookie, or Remember the Titans are on, I’m watching. And I should add, I play no sports whatsoever. Unless sleep is a sport.

KARA: Wow. This is a hard one. I’m a huge movie buff, and love just about everything I watch. But if I had to pick one, it would have to be The Avengers. There’s just so much to love about that movie, and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for the second one coming out soon!

What is your favorite scene in your new release?

JODY: I’m really happy with our book. One scene that matters to me a lot though is when Josh and Alessa are on their date. Learning what is and isn’t okay in Christian romance was a learning curve for me but I think it made me stronger at getting emotions on the page. So, when they’re at the aquarium, it’s very sensual and sweet. They don’t actually kiss, but the romantic tension between them is very strong and genuine. I love that they have that much chemistry between them, that they’re learning the other person, and that they forget themselves now and again because they’re so focused on each other.

KARA: Another tough question! lol. I love every scene in this book, but there is one that really stands out in my mind. This specific scene was crystal clear to me very early on in the writing process. I could close my eyes and see it playing out. After Alessa is released from the hospital, she’s sitting outside on a bench, it’s pouring rain, and Josh approaches. It was so emotional, and I think one of the reasons I love it so much is because it’s the first time Josh truly puts himself out there since his wife’s death years prior. Both he and Alessa are taking a huge chance -- on each other and themselves. It’s very powerful.

Flirting Questions (Choose 5)

Which actor or book character do you have a crush on?
JODY: Can I only have one? In a book, I’d say Levi from the book Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Actor? Hmm. I’m pretty crazy about Gabriel Macht right now. Suits is such a good show. And he looks really good in a suit.

KARA: I suppose I’m not allowed to chose a character from my own books, huh? lol. Okay, okay. Hmm… I’d have to say an actor I have a crush on would be Robert Downey, Jr. Not only is he really easy on the eyes, he’s overcome some really hard times in his life. He’s made poor choices, owned them, and worked hard to not repeat them. I think that alone makes him inspirational.

What’s an absolute no-no in a relationship?

JODY: Dishonesty of any kind. Trust takes a long time to earn and no time to lose. If you’re sharing your life with someone, you have to be able to trust them.

KARA: Abuse. Physical, emotional, verbal… It doesn’t matter. If your significant other hurts you or makes you feel bad about yourself, get out! Run, don’t walk. My first marriage was emotionally and verbally abusive, and while some think this isn’t “equal” abuse or as bad as physical abuse, it is. The person you’re with should love you, despite all your faults. They should make your life better, not worse. And they should never, ever make you feel like you don’t matter.

How did you meet your significant other?

JODY: Well...he worked at a gas station by my house and I often walked up and bought him, and some of the other guys that worked there, slurpees. That was when I was about 17. When I was 21, we started working at the same pub. He was a bartender and I was a waitress. We were friends and co-workers and then we were more. 

KARA: College. We were both attending the same business college. I was attending day classes while he attended night classes. One of the girls I became friends with (Kari) was kinda seeing this guy (Luke) who happened to work with my significant other at the time. I was just out of my divorce and feeling pretty down, so they played matchmaker. Eleven years later, and here we are!

What’s your idea of a perfect date?

JODY: Watching some of my favourite shows back to back, in pajamas, after my husband has brought home Greek food.

KARA: Dinner and a movie. I have a serious obsession with Ruby Tuesdays steak and salad bar. And our local theatre has the most comfortable seats ever! They’re RECLINERS! Like, serious, full-blown, leather recliners. They’re much nicer than my own chair at home. lol.

Do you believe in love at first sight?

JODY: I think you can feel an intense connection and bond immediately. Whether it’s love or just an awareness that this person is going to be in your life. That they matter. I love Ed Sheeran’s line “People fall in love in mysterious ways...maybe just the touch of a hand.” I believe that.

KARA: If you’d asked me this question years ago, my answer would’ve been no. But after meeting my husband, I’m a believer. I knew, hours after meeting him that he was different than anyone else, that he was truly my soul mate. God put him on earth just for me, and I’m grateful for him every single day.
