BOOK BLITZ~ MARRIED IN MONTANA~ KIRSTEN OSBOURNE…with Rafflecopter Giveaway

 

Married in Montana
by Kirsten Osbourne
Series: At the Altar, #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy

Cover Designer: Erin Dameron-Hill

Release Date: April 16, 2015

 

 

Savannah is tired of the dating scene, even though she wants to get married and have a family. She knows her mother will never move on with her own life as long as Savannah is single. Savannah goes to see a matchmaker, specializing in setting up couples who meet at the altar. At first, she thinks Scott is a dream come true, but his blundering soon makes her crazy.

Scott, a Montana bison rancher, doesn’t have time to find a wife. His work is all-encompassing. Besides, he tends to have a hard time getting women to go out with him more than once. When he runs into a matchmaker he’s known all his life, he tells her about the problems he’s had to see if she can help him. When he meets Savannah at the altar, his heart stops for a moment. She’s exactly what he’s looking for. Will their diverse backgrounds keep them apart? Or will they be able to work through their differences to make their marriage a loving relationship?

 

She looked at her husband. “A week?”

“On one condition,” he said, not liking the idea of waiting but not willing to start their marriage on the wrong foot by insisting on his marital rights.

“What’s that?”

“I get to try to convince you otherwise.”

She smiled. “So you’re going to constantly be asking me for sex?”

He grinned. “Oh, I’ll be a little more subtle than that.” He brought her hand to his lips, kissing the palm, his tongue sneaking out to touch her skin.

“I see.” She nodded. “That’s fair. I think it’s a perfect compromise.”

“So do I,” he told her. “It sounds very fair to me.”

“Is there a spare room I can use until our week is up?”

He frowned at that. He would have an easier time convincing her if they were sharing a bed, but he could see where that would give him an unfair advantage in their little game. “Yes, you can have any of the spare rooms you’d like.”

“Thank you,” she said simply. She felt like she was being a bad wife even asking, but she knew she’d feel like she was being a bad person if she jumped into bed with a total stranger the day she met him, even if he was her husband. “Tell me about the ranch.”

He took the change of subject in stride, talking about the huge spread and the men who worked for him. “I have a foreman, but I’m out there sweating and working every day right along with my men.” He eyed her. “Do you ride?”

She shook her head. “No. I wanted to when I was a girl, but after my father died, we just didn’t have the money for any extras. Mom worked, but it wasn’t the same as both of them working.”

She heard a buzzing from her purse, and opened it, taking out her phone. “My mother’s texting me.” She handed him the phone so he could read the message for himself.

Scott laughed, reading the message aloud. “‘Has he killed you yet? If he has, please don’t answer this. If not, please give me a call so I know you’re all right.’ I think you should call her.”

Excerpt:
Emily (Skipping Stones: Book 1)
Unedited

 

 

“Please tell me you’re not seeing each other.” He says
as he locks eyes with me.

 

I swallow wrapping my arms around myself not
understanding his reaction. “No we’re just hanging out, that’s all.”

 

I watch as his shoulders fall and then he surprises me
by quickly closing the distance between us, grabbing my waist and the back of
my neck. Before I can even begin to understand what’s happening his mouth is on
mine and his tongue is pushing between my lips seeking my own. And for just a
moment I let myself fall into the familiar warmth and comfort I’ve always found
in his embrace. I surrender to his will kissing him back, his familiar taste
invading my mouth and overtaking my senses. But the noise of a child hollering
brings reality crashing back on me, and I push my way out of his embrace
breaking the kiss.

 

I stand there and stare him in the eyes as so many
emotions threaten to break the surface, with a trembling hand I cover my mouth
as I shake my head back and forth.

 

“That shouldn’t have happened,” I whisper. Remembering
how easy it was too lose myself in his arms.

 

He frowns and I can tell he’s frustrated with the
whole situation as he runs his hands through his hair covering his face as he
lets out a muffled scream.

 

“Emily…please I think…no, I mean I know I screwed up.
I should have never let you go and I’m sorry.”

Meet the author:  JULIA BRANNAN

Julia Brannan
Julia has been a voracious reader since childhood, using books to escape the miseries of a turbulent adolescence. After leaving university with a degree in English Language and Literature, she spent her twenties trying to be a sensible and responsible person, even going so far as to work for the Civil Service. The book escape came in very useful there too.
And then she gave up trying to conform and resolved to spend the rest of her life living as she wanted to, not as others would like her to. She has since had a variety of jobs, including telesales, teaching and gilding and is currently a transcriber, copy editor and proofreader. In her spare time she is still a voracious reader, and enjoys keeping fit and travelling the world. Life hasn’t always been good, but it has rarely been boring. She lives in rural Wales with her cat Constantine, and her wonderful partner sensibly lives four miles away in the next village.
Now she has decided that rather than just escape into other people’s books, she would actually quite like to create some of her own, in the hopes that people will enjoy reading them as much as she does writing them.

MY THOUGHTS:

MASK OF DUPLICITY by Julia Brannan is an exciting new Scottish Historical Romance set during the 1740’s. Book 1 in this new and fantastic series of “The Jacobite Chronicles” and what a beginning.

“The first in the series about the fascinating lives of beautiful Beth Cunningham, her family and friends during the tempestuous days leading up to the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, which attempted to overthrow the Hanoverian King George II and restore the Stuarts to the British throne.”

Meet Beth Cunningham, her brother Richard, Sir Anthony Peters, and a wonderful, albeit,  treasonous cast of characters, where some have a mask of duplicity.

Fast paced, tale that is well written, with passion, action, fights, sensual tension, duplicity, treason, and finding a HEA for Beth. A must read for Historical Romance fans who enjoy action, adventure, and yes, treason. The Jacobite Rebellion pitted brother against brother, committed many treasonous acts all in the name of restoring the Stuarts to the British throne.

The cast of characters is long, but a necessity to help carry the story forward. The reader is easily caught up in the story, the lives of the characters and the depth of the story.

Ms. Brannan is a new author to me, but I look forward to reading more of her “Jacobite Chronicles”. While, “Mask of Duplicity” had a satisfying conclusion, I would say it is a continuing tale, as many questions are left unanswered. Not necessarily a cliffhanger, but a continuing storyline, I look forward to finding out Beth’s fiance’s true identity and issues this will cause between her and others.

Well researched. I would strongly recommend “Mask of Duplicity” to fans of Scottish Historical, The Jacobite Rebellion and uprising, Historical Romance fans, and fans of Scottish-British history. A fascinating story with a long cast of characters who will capture your interest and hold your attention. A true treasure! An enjoyable and satisfying read and one I would strongly recommend.

But the plot thickens when Gwyn is rescued from the brink of death by a handsome and mysterious stranger…

Saving Gwyn proves to be a dangerous choice when he finds himself falling for her the longer she stays in the castle.

Excerpt

Her reluctant groom

Emma hadn’t paid much attention to where Marcus had gotten the book he’d shown her, but she’d been paying attention when he put it back. She was seven-and-twenty, well past the blushing debutante age, and she was curious. So why not satisfy her curiosity? She knew if anyone, especially Marcus, were to ever know what she was doing; they’d be shocked to the core. But nobody would find out. She’d just flip through the book to see the pictures, then put it back.
She took her first tentative step and winced. Her leg hurt. Badly. She widened her stance and took another step, taking care not to let her legs rub together as she padded over to the box he’d put that naughty book in, then frowned. He’d locked it! Her eyes quickly scanned the shelves and the vanity for the key. She didn’t see it anywhere. She sighed and reached up to her hair. She’d used a hairpin to pick a lock before; she just have to do it again. Pulling out a pin from the top so as not to compromise her entire coiffure, she bent the pin to make it straight and jabbed the end into the keyhole. She jiggled the pin for a second and smiled when the click of the lock broke the silence.
Her reluctant groomFor good measure, she threw a glance over her shoulder before opening the lid. “Lady Bird’s Ladybird Memoir,” she read aloud. She hadn’t caught the title earlier. The shock over Marcus even owning a book with naked pictures was too much for her to care about such a trivial matter as that. Then Emma knit her brows. There wasn’t a single mention of a LadyBirdin all of Debrett’s. And she’d know—she’d memorized the entire dratted thing, after all. Not to mention the fact that she’d spent countless Seasons in London without ever encountering a single mention of such a person. Who was this Lady Bird?
No matter. She carried her treasure back to the bed. Careful to climb in so she wouldn’t bump that extremely painful cut on her leg; she adjusted the covers and ran her fingers over the lettering on the front. Nervous excitement raced through her. Taking a breath, she opened the cover and used the tip of her index finger to flip past the first few pages. She got to the table of contents page and blinked. “’Chapter One, The Differences Between a Lord and Lady’. I’d sure hope she’d know the difference,” Emma muttered, dropping her eyes down to the title for Chapter Four. “Hmm, ‘A Man Versus a “Gentle”man’. Interesting.”
Impatiently, she flipped the page to chapter one and thought her eyes might pop out as she started reading. The author of this book had written real stories about her lovers, using enough hints for just about anyone to recognize who she was talking about.
Emma devoured the first page, and then the second, followed by the third and fourth. Before she knew it, she was sprawled out face-down on the bed, face flushed, heart racing, nearing the end of the fifth chapter. When she’d first started, she’d occasionally glanced at the clock that hung just above Marcus’ vanity to make sure it wasn’t nearing dinner and she wasn’t about to be interrupted. Now she was too enthralled to care.
Her reluctant groomTaking a quick break, she put her finger in the book to mark her page and flipped through the rest to see how much further she had. She sighed. There was too much there to read in an hour’s time. She’d have to get as far as she could today and sneak it back out again later.
Keeping her place marked, she went to that page Marcus had shown her earlier. The night Gregory had decided to show up naked in her bed was not the first time she’d seen him naked. Thankfully, it was the last. As a double reason to rejoice, she hadn’t actually seen that specific part of him that night. It was either covered by the sheets or his hands after she kneed him. However, she hadn’t been so lucky a few months back when his robe “accidentally” came untied just as he entered her room to ask if she’d like him to stoke the fire. She cringed. For years she’d had to endure his subtle hints and uncomfortable innuendo. It wasn’t until about five months ago he’d become more bold with his advances.
Pushing the image of Gregory and his unattractive body out of her mind, she looked down at the drawing of the man in the back of the book. Perhaps Marcus had been right. From the five chapters she’d read, “Lady Bird”, who Emma was convinced now more than before was a fictional name, had described in detail many male members. Some long, some short, some thin, some wide, all different. She blushed. These were not thoughts for proper young ladies. Then again, neither was reading such a scandalous book. She sighed. She was an old spinster governess now. She’d never have a chance to be with a man anyway, so what was the harm in reading the book? Nobody would know, and after she finished, she’d just put it back and pretend to be the naive girl everyone thought her to be.
Her reluctant groomCuriosity urged her to flip back a few pages and look at all the pictures. She’d read enough stories to have an idea of what she’d find. Just as her finger grabbed hold of the paper and had it nearly flipped back, two sharp knocks sounded at the door.
“Don’t come in!” She didn’t know how long she could keep her guest outside and dared not take a chance walking across the room to return the book. Instead, she crawled up to the head of the bed, shoved the book behind the mountain of pillows, then turned around and sat with her back leaning against the pillows. “All right, you may come in now.”
The door opened and a frowning Marcus walked in. “What were you doing in here that I had to wait in the hall?”
“Getting dressed,” she said airily.
He blinked. “You seem to be wearing the same thing you had on when I left.”
Emma grabbed the edges of the robe and held them closed, trying in vain to scowl at him. “Not that it’s your concern, but I had my robe off,” she lied.
Nodding, Marcus took a seat in an empty chair. His face looked slightly pink and every time he looked in her direction, he’d shift and jerk his eyes away.
“Did you come in here for a reason?” she asked after he fidgeted in his chair for a few minutes.
“I wanted to talk to you about earlier. Emma, I was only trying to take care of you. I didn’t mean to—”
“I know,” she cut in. “It’s of no account. I was embarrassed then, but I’m not now.”

OPENING UP by Lauren Dane (June 16, 2015; Forever Trade Paperback; Ink & Chrome: Book #1)

The men of Twisted Steel are great with their hands. And they’re not afraid to get dirty.
Asa Barrons is never lonely for long. Co-owner of the Twisted Steel custom motorcycle shop, he works hard and plays harder. But he never allows his after-hours affairs to interfere with businessuntil he meets racing royalty PJ Colman. While the blue-eyed blonde is all princess on the outside, on the inside Asa can see that this woman is ready to take a walk on the wild side.

PJ knows trouble when she sees it, and Asa is the complete package: fast bike, killer ink, and a sinfully sexy smile that has her imagining things nice girls never do. She talks her way onto the Twisted Steel team to prove her painting skill, and soon learns that Asa is eager to show off some skills of his own.

With the help of Asa’s expert touch, PJ is initiated into a world of wicked desire. No limits. No inhibitions. No turning back. But as perfect as their passion seems, a new challenge awaits, forcing them to ask just how far they are willing to go . . .

MY THOUGHTS:

OPENING UP by Lauren Dane is an exciting Erotica Contemporary Romance.  Book 1 in her newest release “Ink & Chrome” series. Which, is going to be one hot new series, I predict.

The world of custom cars and motorcycles, never looked so good. If you enjoy your heroes tatted, pierced and sexy as all get out, than look no further, here comes Asa Barrons. Looking for a feisty, wisecracking, passionate, heroine  with an independent spirit to compliment Asa, look no further, enter, PJ Colman.  Together, the two have  a combustible chemistry that burns up the pages of “Opening Up”.

But wait, there is even more to this story. It is emotionally charged on so many levels, with complex characters, hot, steamy sex scenes, and the  men of the Twisted-Steel Motorcycle Shop.

Emotionally mature characters, bring so much more to this story than just sex and fun. The secondary characters are a must, I can’t wait for the stories to come to life.

“Opening Up” is an emotional, gripping but funny and passionate story. A sure in for any fans of Lauren Dane, Erotica Romance, and fans of passionate romances. Well done, Ms. Dane. I truly look forward to the next installment of the “Ink & Chrome” series.

BECK VALLEY BOOK TOUR~ THREE SILVER DOVES~DEBORAH GARNER…with #Giveaway and #Review

NEW BOOK RELEASE….

When New York reporter Paige MacKenzie heads to Tres Palomas, New Mexico, the resort of Agua Encantada seems a perfect destination to combine work with pleasure. A quick article on the healing mineral springs and a few leisurely soaking sessions in the resort’s soothing waters promises well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Paige is immediately intrigued with a local artist’s one-of-a-kind jewelry designs, as well as weekly gatherings to hear legends from an elderly storyteller. But when identical jewelry shows up on another guest and the storyteller goes missing, Paige’s R&R is soon redefined as restlessness and risk. Curious and persistent by nature, Paige is convinced there’s a connection. Enlisting the help of a flirtatious resort worker seems like a good idea until it begins to test her loyalty to her favorite cowboy, Jake Norris. Will an unexpected overnight trip to Tierra Roja Casino lead her to the answers she seeks, or are darker secrets lurking along the way?

MY THOUGHTS:

THREE SILVER DOVES by Deborah Garner is an delightful Cozy Mystery, set against the backdrop of Tre Palomas, New Mexico. # in 3 “A Paige MacKenzie Mystery”,  but can be read as a stand alone. See, “The Moonglow Cafe (A Paige MacKenzie” and “Above the Bridge (A Paige MacKenzie Mystery“.

Paige MacKenzie goes to Tres Palomas, New Mexico on vacation and a little work, as her boss as asked her to check out  the Mineral Spring Resort, Aqua Escantada.  What she  finds is intrigue, legends, secrets, mystery and a test of her love for her boyfriend, Jack Norris. She meets, Miguel, a flirty, sexy and totally appealing  resort handyman.  Her unexpected trip to Tierra Roja Casino will sorely test her loyalty to Jack, and where she will find  dark secrets and an undercover operation.

The cast of characters in “Three Silver Doves” is amazing, appealing and intriguing. Paige and Jack are remarkable characters and make an excellent “long distance” couple. I enjoyed this tale of mystery and secrets. A clean, sweet Cozy Mystery! Well written, and executed with premise and concise storytelling! Another great “Paige MacKenzie Mystery”! I strongly recommend to fans of Cozy Mystery, and Mystery of any sort. An enjoyable and satisfying read! A fun summer read!
