Meet the Shaughnessy Brothers

MadeForUsGraphic

 

This month, bestselling author Samantha Chase launches her new contemporary romance series the Shaughnessy Brothers. In the series starter, MADE FOR US, readers are introduced to the five amazing Shaughnessy brothers–each more successful than the last. From a building contractor, to a scientist, to a former racecar driver, and even a rock star, these brothers are as different as can be, but also extremely close. Losing their mother early in their lives solidified the brotherly bond and helping raise their baby sister also brought them together. But with their sister raised and careers in order it is time for the next phase in their lives. And while these brothers might not be looking for happily-ever-afters, romance is looking for them! Below get to know each of these sexy Shaughnessys starting with Aidan from MADE FOR US.

 

Name: Aidan Shaughnessy

Occupation:  Building Contractor                             

Height: 6’2

Hair Color:  Dark Brown               

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 34

 

What makes you the perfect date?

 

No one – including myself – has ever said that!  But if I had to say something, it would be that I like to take care of all the details so that my date doesn’t have to worry about a thing.

 

What do you look for in a woman?

 

Typically someone strong and independent but also enjoys being taken care of.

 

Describe yourself in 100 words or less: 

 

I’m a bit of a control freak – or so I’ve been told!  I’m hard working and know exactly what I want out of life.  I can be quiet and observant – a bit of a people watcher.  I don’t enjoy crowds very much.  I prefer if I’m out, to be out in a small group or with one person.

 

***

 

Name: Hugh Shaughnessy

Occupation:  Luxury Resort Owner/Designer                     

Height: 6’3

Hair Color: Dark Brown

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 32

 

What makes you the perfect date?

 

I am extremely attentive.  I believe in taking a woman out for a romantic dinner with dancing and candlelight and making her feel like she is the most important thing in the world.

 

What do you look for in a woman?

 

She’s intelligent and easy to talk to but who isn’t looking for forever.  I travel a lot and she would need to be understanding of that.

 

Describe yourself in 100 words or less: 

 

I’m a really regimented man.  I mean really.  I like things done a certain way and I’m a stickler for routines and schedules.  Some say I’m overly cautious – in every aspect of my life – but that doesn’t mean that I’m boring.  I have an appreciation for the finer things and I’m outgoing and enjoy being around people and making new friends.

 

***

 

Name: Quinn Shaughnessy

Occupation:  Former Race Car Driver turned Automotive Restorer                          

Height: 6’

Hair Color:  Dirty Blonde

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 30

 

What makes you the perfect date?:  

 

I’m the fun one in the family.  I like to go out with a woman to a bar or someplace with loud music or find something athletic to do.  I want to be where the party is.

 

What do you look for in a woman?

 

I’ll admit to being a little shallow here – I am all about looks.  Tall, blonde, curvy…and that’s about it.

 

Describe yourself in 100 words or less:

 

Like I said, I’m the fun one.  I am all about living life to the fullest.  I enjoy sports – all sports – and I hate to be idle.  Cars are my current passion and to me it’s go-big-or-go-home.  If I can’t succeed and excel at something, then it’s time to move on.  So far it’s worked for me.

 

***

 

Name: Owen Shaughnessy

Occupation:  Astrophysicist       

Height: 6’

Hair Color:  Dark Brown

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 28

 

What makes you the perfect date?

 

I don’t really think I am.  I don’t believe perfect is something anyone can attain.  Dating really hasn’t been on my radar but when I do take a woman out, we usually talk about science.  And she’s normally a scientist so I guess you can say I make sure we talk about mutual interests.

 

What do you look for in a woman?

 

I spend a lot of my time trying to not be noticed.  But if I notice a woman, it’s usually because we’re both working together or studying together.  I look for someone who understands me.

 

Describe yourself in 100 words or less:

 

Quiet.  Shy.  Socially awkward.  At least that’s how most people tell me I am.  I don’t think about it much.  I’m devoted to my field of study and helping others learn about astrophysics and it pretty much consumes all of my time and energy.

 

***

 

Name: Riley Shaughnessy

Occupation:  Musician/Rock Star                             

Height: 6’

Hair Color:  Dark Brown

Eye Color: Blue

Age: 28

 

What makes you the perfect date?

 

When I’m out on a date with a woman, there is no one else in the world.  I put all of my attention on her and do my best to make sure that our date includes everything she wants.

 

What do you look for in a woman?

 

I used to be all about the looks – mainly because women were always chasing after me.  I had superficial relationships, now I look for a woman who sees more than a rock star, a celebrity.  I want to find someone who just sees me.

 

Describe yourself in 100 words or less:

 

Confident.  Talented.  And currently, mildly insecure.  I have always loved music, loved to sing and if I couldn’t do that, I don’t know what I’d do with myself.  Music is just a part of me.  I put my partying ways behind me – not that I had much of one.  I’m just as comfortable on stage in front of thousands of people, as I am at home watching TV.

SamanthaChaseAuthor Biography

 

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan’s Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40’s to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.

When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.

His Contract

Cover Reveal

HisContract300Blurb:

Lawyers know when to play by the rules…and when to break them.

Harvard law professor Jack Archer once balanced his professional life with the private world of

dominance, surrender, and trust he shared with his wife. Since cancer stole her a year ago,

finding love again—her final wish for him—is the furthest thing from his mind. From his empty

house to the classroom, grief follows his every move. Until he meets a young woman with

shadows in her eyes even darker than his own.

Once a shining star at law school, Lilly Sterling’s dreams died when the Dom she trusted left her

heartbroken and lost. She’s starting fresh in a new city as a paralegal, but meeting Jack

reawakens all her old demons—and her lingering desires.

Jack offers to become Lilly’s mentor for both the courtroom and the playroom, but tells himself

it’s not a relationship. Their carefully worded contract guarantees that. But when their trial

agreement starts heating up, both Jack and Lilly must decide what will tip the scales: the letter of

the law…or love?

Warning: All rise for a book that contains a wounded submissive and a Dominant who wants to

retrain her while retaining control of his heart. Discovery phase may involve spankings, bondage,

edging, and blindfolds. Is it hot? You be the judge.

Dare to Rock by Carly Philips: book tour!!!

Dare to RockCarly Phillips
Dare to Rock
Release Date: 8/4/2015

Blurb:

Avery Dare lives a quiet life in Miami as an online fashion/makeup video blogger. She has good friends, a close, large family and if her love life is lacking, she likes it that way. But when she receives an invitation to one of her ex’s concerts along with an invitation to meet him back stage, she decides to take the risk… and comes face to face with the reality of his rock star lifestyle – the press, the crowds, and the half-naked groupies.

At eighteen, Grey Kingston left everything he knew and loved behind to seek fame and fortune as a rock star, and he found it as the lead guitarist and singer for the band, Tangled Royal. Fans adore him, women throw themselves at him, and he can afford everything he couldn’t growing up. Yet at the height of his career, he’s ready to walk away and return home to a simpler life… and the woman he left behind, if he can convince her to give him another chance.

Except moving on isn’t as easy as Grey would like. When Avery is threatened by a stalker, it becomes evident Grey’s fans not only don’t want him to retire, they don’t want Avery in his life either. And Avery isn’t sure she wants the pressures that are part of Grey’s life… but she doesn’t want to lose him again, either. Can their recently renewed love survive the fallout?

Excerpt:

Sweat poured off Grey Kingston’s body, and his heart beat a too-rapid rhythm, the high and adrenaline rush from his performance still pulsing through his veins as he walked into the lounge backstage. He pulled off his soaked shirt and tossed it onto the floor, grateful for the stocked room and waiting pile of towels. He grabbed one and dried his face and hair, deliberately trying to slow his breathing.

The sound of Tangled Royal fans stomping their feet and demanding an encore echoed through the walls, but the band had performed their final set. Even as his pulse still soared.

He glanced toward the door. “Did she pick up the ticket?” Grey asked Simon Colson, their manager, who was busy texting on his phone.

“What? Who?” Simon, ever the well-dressed Brit, shoved his phone into his trouser pocket. No jeans for him. “Good show,” he said to Grey and the rest of the band, ignoring Grey’s question.

Lola Corbin, their lead singer and Grey’s best friend, was still bouncing in her heels, not yet coming down from their shared high either. “We did rock it,” she said, tossing her dark hair over her shoulder.

Milo Davis, their bassist, grunted something and fell into a chair in the corner. Grey narrowed his gaze. Milo barely had the energy for a full concert these days, and that worried him.

But right now Grey had bigger concerns and turned to Simon. “I asked you if Avery Dare picked up the VIP tickets I told you to leave at the box office.”

Simon shrugged. “I couldn’t tell you.”

Grey scowled at his manager’s I don’t give a shit tone. More and more lately, Simon’s lack of consideration about what the band members wanted grated on Grey’s nerves. Lola might be considering using him for her solo career, but anything Grey did going forward wouldn’t be with the man.

At least he’d indicated he had left the tickets. He’d be out of a job if he screwed with Grey on this. “Fucking find out.”

“What’s so special about this piece of ass?” Simon barely got the words out because Grey grabbed him by his collared shirt and pinned him up against the wall.

“Talk about her like that again and you’re done.”

“Whoa.” Lola put her petite body between them, pushing Grey away from their manager. “Everyone breathe,” she muttered. “You. Go take a walk and calm down before your company shows up,” she ordered Grey.

He stormed off, missing whatever lecture she gave to Simon next.

Though the man had done his job well, helping maneuver Tangled Royal to the elusive top of the charts, he cared about the bottom line and not much else. Especially not the fact that Tangled Royal was more than a band, people with real feelings, issues, and lives. No wonder Simon didn’t believe how serious both Grey and Lola were about changing their futures.

Danny Bills, their drummer, already had a wife and two daughters who lived in L.A. He was ready for home time, and everyone knew it. Milo was another story. If he didn’t stop the drugs, he wouldn’t have a future.

As for Grey, he hoped for more than the travel and fame that had been so important to him way back when. He hoped for her.

His eyes flickered to the door. No sign of Avery. He tipped his head back, wondering if she’d come backstage or ignore the invitation … and him. His stomach gripped painfully at the thought of not seeing her again. She was the one person who not only understood the loner musician he’d been as a teen but who’d grounded him when he’d threatened to spiral. With her soft voice, that thick mane of dark hair, and those lavender-like eyes, she’d burrowed someplace deep inside him. Still, she hadn’t been enough to hold him, not when fame, fortune, and the need to be something more lived within him.

But it was Avery whose face he saw in the nameless women he’d fucked over the years. Avery whose belief in him kept him going when times were hard. Funny how that worked. He wondered if she’d thought of him over the years and if she was as hyped up about possibly seeing him again now.

Dare to Love (Dare to Love #1) – FREE!!!

Blurb:

New York Times Bestselling Author Carly Phillips turns up the heat in her newest sexy contemporary romance series, and introduces you to the Dare family… siblings shaped by a father’s secrets and betrayal.

Since finding out his father had another family on the side, Ian Dare swore to be the upstanding, responsible man his cheating parent had never been. When it comes to his relatives, he gives his all but in relationships he offers the bare minimum. But one glimpse of sensual Riley Taylor arouses his dominant and protective instincts and Ian is entranced. He will do anything to possess her … and does. But any future with Riley must include him extending an olive branch to the half-brother who is a constant reminder of the pain he’d rather forget.

Independent and always in control, Riley Taylor makes no apologies for choosing men carefully. Relationships have never been a priority and she believes herself hardened to domineering men – until she meets charismatic Ian Dare. He manages to turn a simple kiss into an all out assault on her senses and when he takes control in the bedroom, she’s stunned to discover she likes it. As their affair heats up, they soon realize they complete each other in ways neither imagined. But Riley’s past is closer than she cares to remember, and her struggles with Ian’s dominance might just cost her everything.
