NEW ADULT SPOTLIGHT WITH GIVEAWAY!! ROBIN YORK, DEEPER~FROM EROTIC ROMANCE TO COMING OF AGE: LOOK INSIDE…..

ROBIN YORK
{New Adult/Coming of Age}
~DEEPER~
9780804177016
From erotic romance we go to New Adult with a debut launch from Robin York – DEEPER – In this New Adult debut by Robin York, a college student is attacked online and must restore her name—and stay clear of a guy who’s wrong for her, but feels so right.
 
When Caroline Piasecki’s ex-boyfriend posts their sex pictures on the Internet, it destroys her reputation as a nice college girl. Suddenly her once-promising future doesn’t look so bright. Caroline tries to make the pictures disappear, hoping time will bury her shame. Then a guy she barely knows rises to her defense and punches her ex to the ground.West Leavitt is the last person Caroline needs in her life. Everyone knows he’s shady. Still, Caroline is drawn to his confidence and swagger—even after promising her dad she’ll keep her distance. On late, sleepless nights, Caroline starts wandering into the bakery where West works.

They hang out, they talk, they listen. Though Caroline and West tell each other they’re “just friends,” their feelings intensify until it becomes impossible to pretend. The more complicated her relationship with West gets, the harder Caroline has to struggle to discover what she wants for herself—and the easier it becomes to find the courage she needs to fight back against the people who would judge her.

When all seems lost, sometimes the only place to go is deeper.

Advance praise for Deeper“The perfect new adult story . . . West will make you swoon!”New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy

“Beautifully written and full of swoony tender moments, toe-curling chemistry, and delicious, twisty angst . . . Stop whatever you’re doing and read this book.”—Christina Lauren, author of the Beautiful Bastard series

Synopsis
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

For fans of Fifty Shades of Grey, Bared to You, and Release Me comes an all-new erotic series of three enigmatic and powerful men, and the striking women who can bring them to their knees.
 
He is everything I crave, all I desperately want—and he is everything I can’t have.
 
Evan Black embodies my every fantasy. He is brilliant, fierce, and devastatingly handsome. But he is also headstrong, dangerous, and burdened with secrets.

My family warned me to stay away, that I could never handle Evan’s dark dealings or scarred past. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have run. But our desire is undeniable, and some temptations you just can’t fight.

And from the moment we touch—the passion between us consuming us both—I know that I will never be the same.

Wanted is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

After an eventful Season, Anna Sloane longs for some peace and quiet to pursue her writing.

However the real reason he’s a guest at the same remote Scottish castle has nothing to do with Anna . . . until a series of mysterious threats leave him no choice but to turn to her for help in stopping a dangerous conspiracy. As desire erupts between them, Davenport soon learns he’s not the only one using a carefully crafted image to hide his true talents. And he’s more than ready to show Anna that sometimes reality can be even better than her wildest imaginings . . .

TODAY’S GUEST: JOHN P. DAVIDSON…Step inside for a thrilling Q&A….

TODAY’S GUEST:

JOHN P. DAVIDSON

{Based on a true story}

*This is his first novel*

THE OBEDIENT ASSASSIN

 {Thriller/Political Intrigue/Historical Fiction}

The Obedient Assassin by John. P. Davidson

 

 

 

 

Welcome John and congratulations on the release of your novel, THE OBEDIENT ASSASSIN!!!

What was the most surprising thing you learned from your 10 years of research for the book?

JOHN: One of the many surprising things I learned was that Trotsky had almost absolute faith in the power of the written word. Knowing that Joseph Stalin was attempting to have him killed, Trotsky was attempting to defend himself by writing a biography of Stalin. This had to set some kind of record for a problematic author-subject relationship.

      What drew you to Trotsky that made you decide to center a book around him?

JOHN: Trotsky was a classical tragic character. He was known as one of the “great minds” of his time, was considered the greatest orator of the Russian language, and was a brilliant writer who, coming from nowhere, rose to the greatest heights only to have everything ripped away because he had slighted Stalin.

      THE OBEDIENT ASSASSIN is a story full of personal relationships. Which relationship is most interesting to you?

JOHN: The relationship between Ramon and Sylvia and Ramon was intriguing in that it developed slowly into a genuine romance, but what was perhaps more fascinating and certainly more unusual was what occurred between Ramon and Trotsky toward the end of the book. With little direct contact, from opposite sides of the wall,  they became intensely aware of each other and it seemed that Trotsky all but collaborated with Ramon in his execution. As Sylvia says at the end of the book about panic attacks, he certainly stopped looking.

 

      How difficult is it to write fictional dialogue and actions for characters that really existed in history?

JOHN: Because so many of the characters were speaking a second or third language, they needed to sound a bit foreign and that was fairly easy because I’ve studied German, French, Italian and am fluent in Spanish. The scene in the hospital room at the end of the book when there were so many languages being spoken and simultaneously translated was tricky but the power of the drama was worth the effort.

      What draws you to this particular period in history?

JOHN: The late 1930s were a romantic, dramatic and mysterious time when the world powers were on a collision course, alliances were shifting, and one could cast the story in terms of good and evil.

      If you could go back to one period in history in any part of the world, what would you choose?

JOHN: Paris in the years after the first World War.

 

7.  Why do you think that few have written about Trotsky’s story?

JOHN: The Kremlin’s propaganda machine destroyed Trotsky reputation and wrote him out of Soviet history.  There are famous photographs from the Revolution that were airbrushed to remove Trotsky from the picture. Many Russians today don’t know that Trotsky was a revolutionary hero.

 If Trotsky had not been assassinated, how do you think the world would be different?

JOHN: Trotsky provided a voice of reason and a humane face for socialism, but the forces against him were so great, I doubt the world would be any different.

 

      How did growing up in a small ranching community in Texas impact your imagination as a child and your desire to write?

JOHN: We were newcomers and outsiders in a deeply rooted and tightly knit German community. We didn’t speak the language or know all that much about the culture, so that understanding relationships required attention and curiosity.

 

After studying economics and history in college, what inspired you to leave Texas and serve in the Peace Corps?

JOHN: I wanted to have exotic adventures, speak a foreign, and help less fortunate people.

 

How did your time in Peru impact your storytelling?

JOHN: I was the only foreigner and English speaker living in a small desert village. At night, I read Henry James by candle light after the town’s generator was turned off.

THE OBEDIENT ASSASSIN

JOHN P. DAVIDSON

The Obedient Assassin by John. P. Davidson

  • Hardcover: 320 pages
  • Publisher: Delphinium (February 4, 2014)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1883285585
  • ISBN-13: 978-1883285586

*From the publicist*

WAS LEON TROTSKY’S MURDERER A HERO OF THE PEOPLE OR A COLD-BLOODED ASSASSIN?

 

Ramón Mercader seemed to have everything—a lush life in Paris, evenings with Frida Kahlo and other artists, and the love of a beautiful woman who shared his leftist ideals—so why did he carry out the murder of Leon Trotsky, a leader of the Bolshevik Revolution?

Because this bourgeois life was a façade constructed by his mother and her lover, both Soviet agents loyal to Stalin.

Author and journalist John P. Davidson follows the twisted and melancholy path to assassination in THE OBEDIENT ASSASSIN: A Novel Based on a True Story (Delphinium Books/distributed by HarperCollins; February 2014). Based on 10 years of meticulous research, Davidson recreates the story of a man at a crossroads of modern history.

Mercader was recruited from the frontlines of the Spanish Civil War and his newly assumed identity of a Belgian aristocrat allowed him to insinuate himself with the exiled Trotsky’s circle in Europe. When he fell for the Jewish woman he was ordered to seduce to get closer to Trotsky, his obedience began to weaken and his conscience threatened to betray him.

THE OBEDIENT ASSASSIN leads the reader through Spain, France and New York, and finally to Mexico, where Mercader contacts Kahlo and Diego Rivera, who had offered Trotsky and his wife refuge in one of their gated homes. With the atmosphere and detail of the memorable spy novels and movies set in the mid-20th Century, this novel captures the drama of one of the most tumultuous times in world history—and one of its most controversial events.

He began writing for Texas Monthly in 1976, and in 1980 published the expose, The Long Road North (Doubleday).  He subsequently received a NEA grant and the Penney-Missouri Prize for Excellence in Journalism.

Even in the darkest of shadows, love can light the way.

Nicholas Graham is caught in the middle: of his family, of his desires, of his own unhappiness. After he meets Winnie Watson, his self-imposed curmudgeonly existence pales in comparison to spending time with her. He wants to be with her, to get to know her. She is a beacon to all the secret cravings he has controlled. Until now.

Winnie Watson endured, and survived, a horrendous childhood that would give others nightmares. She started over, a new name, a new goal in life. Then she met the Grahams and everything went sideways. She’s done the unthinkable and struggles to accept it. She wants to forget it all again, but the specter of Nicholas Graham, physical and in her dreams, won’t let her move on.

Caught between their needs, their wants, and what the world will allow them, Nick and Winnie are doomed from the moment they met. However, love will teach them that even the biggest obstacles can be overcome if you believe in love.

R IS FOR REBEL~ MEGAN MULRY…..GUEST POST WITH GIVEAWAY!!

WE ARE SO EXCITED TO HAVE WITH US TODAY….

Megan Mulry, R IS FOR REBEL

Welcome, Megan!!!

R Is for Rebel: ...and Royalty, Relatives, Reality, and Running from love...

 

Thanks so much for having me stop by!

 

R is for REBEL COVER-FINALMBA&M: What was your inspiration for writing “R is for Rebel”?

 

MEGAN: I knew when I started the Unruly Royals series that I would write Abby’s story eventually. Then, when Eliot came to fruition in the second book, it just made sense to me that he—the most unlikely match for Abby—would be the best foil for her character.

 

MBA&M: Why write a story about a heiress, royalty and rebellion?

 

MEGAN: I love writing within an imaginary world of wealth and excess because then the conflicts are almost entirely internal. The external conflicts are…what? My private jet is in the shop? I need my hotel room upgraded? When everything appears to be hunky-dory from the outside, I think that’s when it’s really interesting to delve into what is going on inside someone’s brain, when the characters are forced to confront what they want and who they are (ironically) apart from their material possessions.

 

MBA&M:  Who do you feel was or is your greatest influence in your writing career?

 

MEGAN: So many teachers and writers have influenced my writing…it changes all the time. For some reason, right at this moment I’m thinking it was my high school English teacher who exposed me to Chaucer and Virginia Woolf, Alice Walker, E.B. White, and Zora Neale Hurston. That’s the person who was the most instrumental by opening up the world of books for me. In terms of my career, I think my agent has been the greatest influence, in terms of keeping me excited and forward-thinking year after year, for the long haul.

 

MBA&M: What do you wish to accomplish in your life, you have not as yet accomplished?

 

MEGAN: I guess I don’t really think of my life in terms of specific accomplishments anymore, but more about the type of person I hope to be on a daily basis. If I can be a loving wife and mother, an attentive friend, a caring sister/daughter, than I feel much more peaceful than if I achieve some external milestone. That said, I have to confess, I do dream of having a home in France at some point, where everyone I love can come visit and drink wine and eat unpasteurized cheese and write all the livelong day.

 

 MBA&M: How did you and your loved one celebrate Valentine’s Day?

 

MEGAN: The best laid plans! We thought we’d have a romantic dinner at home and snuggle on the couch to watch the Olympics. After my husband fixed me a cocktail, we sank down in front of the tube just before 8:00 pm. By 8:10 pm I was sound asleep with my head on his shoulder and our dog curled up by my feet. Not very glamorous, but I like to think all that bone-deep comfort after a hectic week is the bedrock of true romance. At least, I hope so!

 

Thanks again for inviting me to stop by!

Thank you so much for stopping by and spending time with us and our readers!! 

Congratulations on your latest release, R is for Rebel!!

R IS FOR REBEL

MEGAN MULRY

{R IS FOR REBEL, Unruly Royals #4, February 2014}

R is for REBEL COVER-FINAL

DESCRIPTION

Being royal isn’t all it’s cracked up to be…

Abigail Heyworth, youngest daughter of the 18th Duke of Northrop, is not your typical British royal—she’ll take a recycling drive over a charity ball any day. She can’t stand hats and heels. Abby’s not getting much sympathy, of course, because everyone thinks the life of royalty is so charmed.

But to Abigail, keeping up appearances is unbearable, while running away doesn’t seem to work either. Just when she feels like she’s getting whiplash from swinging between flat-out rebellion to miserable capitulation, Abigail meets an all-American self-made millionaire who challenges her on every level.

It may turn out that what Abigail is searching for kind of resembles the American Dream…
