The Untouchable Earl by Amy Sandas…..includes giveaway link

Today MBA is honored to welcome author Amy Sandas to our site. We hope you enjoy this visit and will take part in the giveaway! Don’t forget to comment to let us know your thoughts on Brooding Heroes!!

Welcome to MyBookAddictionandMore Amy!

Amy: Brooding heroes. I’ve always been drawn to them over all other hero types. They stay in my mind long after they attain their happy ending, perhaps because that HEA tends to be so hard-won. They tend to carry around scars that won’t heal and painful memories that won’t fade, closing themselves off from others, fearing judgement or further hurt. I love their complexity, their secrets, the deep inner darkness they don’t bother to hide, and the tenderness they don’t want you to find.

MBA: Who are your favorite brooding heroes?

Amy: Aragorn II, son of Arathorn in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings – I reference the film version because for me, it is Viggo Mortensen’s portrayal of this character as much as it is the character itself which makes Aragorn so unforgettable to me. Whether as the ranger known as Strider or the lost heir of Isildur, Aragorn is a man haunted by the weight of his past and reluctant to claim the destiny that awaits him, because he understands the gravity of it like few do. His focus never wavers, his loyalty is unquestionable, yet you can see by a subtle bow of his head that he wishes it could all be different, especially when honor and duty take him away from the woman of his heart.

Avenell Slade, the hero in my latest title, The Untouchable Earl, is also a wonderful brooder. Keeping people beyond arms reach is vital to his survival in a society that would scorn him for the physical affliction he acquired from a childhood illness. No one can know his secret, and that means no one can get too close. It is a wretched existence made only more devastating when he meets Lily Chadwick, a woman whose closeness he desires beyond all else.

Genre: Historical Romance

“Are you afraid?”
“Yes,” she replied in a soft voice. “But I love the way you frighten me.”

Lily Chadwick has spent her life playing by society’s rules. But when an unscrupulous moneylender snatches her off the street and puts her up for auction at a pleasure house, she finds herself in the possession of a man who makes her breathless with terror and impossible yearning…

Though the reclusive Earl of Harte claimed Lily with the highest bid, he hides a painful secret—one that has kept him from knowing the pleasure of a lover’s touch. Even the barest brush of skin brings him physical pain, and he’s spent his life keeping the world at arms’ length. But there’s something about Lily that maddens him, bewitches him, compels him…and drives him toward the one woman brave and kind enough to seek to heal his troubled heart.

Amy Sandas’ love of romance began one summer when she stumbled across one of her mother’s Barbara Cartland books. Her affinity for writing began with sappy pre-teen poems and led to a Bachelor’s degree with an emphasis on Creative Writing from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. She lives with her husband and children in Wisconsin.

Cranfield is imprisoned by her lingering terror of horses and carriages.
She’s fascinated by the Earl of Ruel. She believes that he can teach

And now she’s willing to risk almost anything-her reputation, even her virtue-to find out. But what he proposes startles her.

Ruel
instantly senses that shy Lady Cranfield could be the sweetest, most
submissive experience of a lifetime-if only he can gain her total and
complete trust. He offers his help in return for her submission and
obedience.

Neglected as a child by her ducal parents then later
ignored by her handsome, charming husband, Lady Cranfield learnt to
protect her heart at all costs. She trusts no one but herself.

How will the jaded Earl of Ruel break through her self-protective defences and earn her trust and submission?

Trust Me:
Anne
and Jon’s love was born in isolation. Necessity thrusts them back into
Society. There are those who will stop at nothing to tear apart the

Perilous Risk:

Howland is in desperate need of help. From the shadows steps forth a man

Stephen Drake lost Rebecca long ago. Now a spy
for the Crown, with power, funds and a title, he’s been assigned to

side—one he’s fought to keep hidden for many years–awakens with a
vengeance. This time, he’s determined to possess her forever.

But as danger surrounds them, the two lovers must face secrets that could destroy them and the fragile trust they’ve built.

~~

The Delicate Matter of Lady Blayne:
Driven
to the brink of madness by love for her late husband, a young man too
ill to meet the demands of the marriage bed, Lady Blayne teeters on the
brink of scandal. Now she faces the temptation of a man she once
rejected—husband’s cousin and heir, James, the new Lord Blayne. His
sensual appeal, iron will and stern self-mastery fascinates her. What if
sensual indulgence is the only way out of her darkness? However, those
she loves the most control the young widow through manipulation and
coercion.

Honor bound to protect Lady Blayne, James will not risk
his heart. He must wed a socially appropriate heiress. Scandalously
self-indulgent Lady Blayne won’t do. Yet the pretty girl he once knew
has grown into a beautiful, curvaceous woman—every man’s dream.
Especially his.

~~~

Miranda’s Dilemma:
Poised to become
Mayfair’s most expensive courtesan, Miss Miranda Jones finds her rise
inexplicably blocked by a socially powerful nobleman. Scorned by her
ducal father and determined to attain everything that life has denied
her, she’s not about to let this arrogant earl stop her.
Adrian
Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers, saw his father destroyed by a
heartless, predatory courtesan. He has no time or patience for such
nightbirds. He’s far too busy restoring his family’s wealth and
reputation whilst doing what he can to protect his friends from the
clutches of London’s scheming courtesans.
Then a moment of
compassion turns intense dislike to breathless passion, and these two
strong-willed, fiercely proud people indulge in a brief affair. Each is
convinced that they can satisfy their craving without emotional risk.

These scorchingly hot historical romances contain darker, angsty themes
and frequent love scenes with frank sexual language, description,
aspects of light BDSM and aspects of abuse in the characters’
backstories.

BLOG TOUR with #Giveaway and #Review~ Baron~ Joanna Shupe…

One pragmatic industrialist is about to learn 
that a man may make his own destiny, 
but love is a matter of fortune . . .

 

BARON
The Knickerbocker Club #2

Releasing Oct 25th, 2016
Kensington Zebra
New York
City’s Gilded Age shines as bright as the power-wielding men of the
Knickerbocker Club. And one pragmatic industrialist is about to learn that a
man may make his own destiny, but love is a matter of fortune . . .
 
Born into one of New York’s most
respected families, William Sloane is a railroad baron who has all the right
friends in all the right places. But no matter how much success he achieves, he
always wants more. Having secured his place atop the city’s highest echelons of
society, he’s now setting his sights on a political run. Nothing can distract
him from his next pursuit—except, perhaps, the enchanting con artist he never
saw coming . . .
Ava Jones has eked out a living the
only way she knows how. As “Madame Zolikoff,” she hoodwinks gullible audiences
into believing she can communicate with the spirit world. But her carefully
crafted persona is nearly destroyed when Will Sloane walks into her life—and
lays bare her latest scheme. The charlatan is certain she can seduce the
handsome millionaire into keeping her secret and using her skills for his
campaign—unless he’s the one who’s already put a spell on her . . .

excerpt-banner 

 

baron_coverWilliam Sloane did not believe in the ability to commune with the spirit world. Hell, he didn’t even believe there was a spirit world.

Yet here he sat, inside a ramshackle theater in the Tenderloin district, watching this audacious spectacle. Madam Zolikoff, she called herself. The mystifying medium who could commune with spirits and perform extraordinary feats. The woman was the worst actress he’d ever seen—and Will had seen plenty.

Eyes closed, she swayed and waved her hands, all while chanting. The man across from her, one she’d pulled up onstage, stared, enthralled, as Madam attempted to speak to his dead mother. The electric lights overhead flickered, and the audience tittered.

“Ah! I think we are close!” she announced loudly in an appalling Russian accent.

Will nearly rolled his eyes. Was anyone really buying this charade?

Shifting in his uncomfortable seat, he took in the meager audience. About twenty men and women, all average-looking, a far cry from the extravagant crowd he usually associated with. No diamond tiaras or ostrich feathers here, just derby hats and plain bonnets. But every pair of eyes was trained on the young woman working the stage.

She was attractive, he supposed, if one preferred liars and cheats, which he most definitely did not. Still, her pale blond hair showed off her striking light brown eyes. Straight, delicate nose. High cheekbones. Arching brows. Full lips painted a scandalous red.

He liked those lips. Quite a lot, in fact. If he were dead, those lips alone might bring him back.

“I hear her!” A steady rapping reverberated around the room. An accomplice, no doubt, yet the audience gasped.

“Mr. Fox, your mother is here with us now. What would you like to ask her?”

The man onstage asked simple questions for the next fifteen minutes, with Madam Zolikoff “interpreting” the dead mother’s answers. Will absently rubbed his stomach, anger burning over this performance, that she would take advantage of someone’s grief in such a profoundly fraudulent way. When Will’s own mother had died, he’d fervently wished for something—anything—to bring her back. Nothing had, however, and he’d been left in a cold house with an even colder man.

Madam Zolikoff prattled on, regaining his attention. Had this woman no shame? No empathy for the heartbreak that went along with losing a loved one? For the first time since he sat down, he looked forward to the confrontation with her.

He planned to shut the medium down. Run her out of Manhattan, if necessary, because she was standing in the way of something greater, a different sort of power than he possessed now, but one of greater import. A power he would not fall short of achieving.

John Bennett, a former New York State senator and current gubernatorial candidate, had asked Will to partner on the ticket as lieutenant governor. It was something Will’s father had always wanted, to wield political influence, yet he’d died before his political career could take wing. Now Will would be the Sloane achieving that goal—and dancing on his father’s grave after he and Bennett won.

But John Bennett had a weakness, one by the name of Madam Zolikoff. Seemed the madam had dug her hooks into Bennett, and the candidate would not listen to reason regarding the dangers this presented. But Will wasn’t about to allow her to jeopardize Bennett’s political career—or his own. They could not afford a scandal six months before the election.

When the performance finally ended, Will didn’t bother clapping or stamping his feet like the other patrons. He rose, turned on his heel, and headed straight for the door he’d learned would take him backstage.

No one stopped him. More than a few curious glances were thrown his way and he tugged his derby lower to obscure his face. He’d run Northeast Railroad for the last thirteen years and came from one of the most prominent families in New York. The name Sloane was as well known as Astor, Stuyvesant, and Van Rensselaer. Consequently, Will had never shied from public attention, but he’d rather not be recognized here.

For several minutes, he cut through the long hallways in the bowels of the theater. Now at the door to her dressing room, he knocked. A slide of a lock and then the door opened to reveal a brunette woman in a black shirtwaist and skirt, the same costume she’d worn on stage. Her lips were still painted a deep red. He inclined his head ever so slightly. “Madam Zolikoff.”

“Come in, please.” Her voice was deep and husky, a sultry tone more suited to a bedroom than a stage. Thankfully, there was no trace of that ludicrous Russian accent she’d used in front of the crowd. Perhaps this conversation would not be as difficult as he’d feared.

She stepped aside. “I’ve been expecting you, Mr. Sloane.”

No surprise she knew his face, but had she noticed him in the audience? Three steps brought him inside her dressing room, if one could call a space no bigger than a cupboard a “room.” Not enough square footage existed here to allow for more than the small table and chair already in place. A mirror hung on the wall above the table, and a blond wig rested on a stand atop said table. With nowhere to go, he folded his hands behind his back.

She glided around him and lowered into the sole chair, facing away from him, and reached for a cloth. He watched in the mirror as she slowly swiped the cloth over her mouth to remove the lip color. She didn’t rush and Will had plenty of time to study her mouth. He highly suspected the display another type of performance, one designed to throw him off balance.

“Is there another name I may call you, other than your stage name?”

“No.”

“I feel ridiculous calling you Madam Zolikoff.”

“That is your problem, not mine.” Finished with her cloth, she dropped the scrap to the table and caught his gaze in the mirror. “We are not friends, Mr. Sloane, so let’s not pretend otherwise. I know why you are here.”

“Is that so?” He hadn’t expected her to be so forthright. In his mind, she’d been meek and frightened, concerned over the unpleasantness a man in his position could bring down on a woman in her position. But this woman seemed neither meek nor frightened. “And why am I here?”

“You want to scare me away from John. Get him away from my evil clutches.” She wriggled her fingers menacingly on this last sentence. “How’s that?”

“Good. This saves us both time. Now you may agree to never see Bennett again, stop bilking him out of hundreds of dollars, and stay out of his life forever.”

“Bilking him?” Her lip curled, drawing Will’s attention back to her mouth, damn it. “I’ve got news for you, mugwump, I’ve earned every dollar providing services to your friend—and not those kind of services, either. John and I are strictly business.”

Will smirked. He’d never met an unmarried man and woman who spent hours together with money exchanged who were “strictly business.” “Miss whomever you are, I don’t care what kind of lies you’re shoveling out there to audiences, but I’m not some rube fresh off the farm. I know what you’re about, and all of it stinks.”

“Oh, indeed? So what am I about, then?”

“Blackmail. And if he doesn’t pay, you’ll take whatever personal details you’ve learned about him to the papers and turn him into a laughingstock. I will not let that happen.”

She rose, and, because of the tight space, this put her close enough to where he could see the hazel flecks in her brown eyes. Were those freckles on her nose? “I don’t care who you are or what you think of me. If you think I’m going to let some stuffed, pompous railroad man scare me away from my best client, you are dead wrong.”

MY THOUGHTS:

WICKED RIVALS by Lauren Smith is an excitng Regency/Scottish Historical Romance. Book 4 in the “League of Rogues”. What an exciting series this has been thus far!

Filled with passion, intrigue, betrayal, trust, forgiveness, healing and so much more. What a fantastic and exciting series, the “League of Rogues” has been!

I absolutely loved “Wicked Rivals”. From beginning to end, it is fast paced, with enticing and energetic characters and an intriguing storyline.

Follow, Ashton, Lord Lennox, a wealthy, powerful and strong-willed, and ruthless member of the “League of Rogues”. He is determined to find his enemy and destroy him, before he can destroy his friends.

Rosalind Melbourne, a widow and the daughter of a Scottish lord, who was cruel and ruthless.

Rosalind and Ashton are both business minded, strong-willed, and  control freaks. What a perfect couple! I enjoyed the interaction between Ashton and Rosalind, as the sparks fly and love blossoms, against all odds.

Historical fans will absolutely love “Wicked Rivals”. It has a wide range of emotions, with a compelling and powerful storyline. However, the reader is left with questions has to who is out to destroy the “League of Rogues” and why. A continuing saga!  Each book brings dramatic and intriguing characters.

Once again, Ms. Smith, has written a must read Historical Romance. What a brilliant storyteller!  Readers will find this series very addictive! An absolute must read!! I can’t wait for more of the “League of Rogues”.  “Wicked Rivals” was a real page turner. I hope you will pick up a copy of this amazing story. Well worth the time to read.

INTERVIEW with A.P. Aruna….

MBA&M: Nice to meet you,  Ms. Aruna, welcome to My Book Addiction and More.  Can you please tell our readers a bit about yourself?

I’m a Cambodian woman of mixed blood, married to an aspiring author, and of course he had something to do with my idea to write entertaining fiction. We live in a little green house in the countryside in southern Cambodia. No kids yet, but we’re working on it.

MBA&M: What was your inspiration for writing a Dark Erotic Thriller, set in a psychiatric hospital?

I read a book, The CIA’s Control of Candy Jones, by Donald Bain, and I thought this would make a good novel. Candy was a famous model in the 1940’s, a popular pinup girl second only to Betty Grable. She later ran a modeling agency and married a radio talk show host who soon began to notice that at times she seemed to be a totally different person. Through many sessions of hypnosis it was discovered that she had been a hypno-programmed spy who went on missions under an alter-ego called Arlene Grant. In other words she was a real life Manchurian Candidate.

MBA&M: How much research was entailed in writing a story about a “sensual maze of mind control and torture”?

Quite a bit, and I’m still not finished. The first book I read was by John Marks, The Search for the Manchurian Candidate: The CIA & Mind Control and I was becoming more convinced that all this stuff was real, I learned that these mind control experiments were being done in reputable hospitals by doctors and psychiatrists who were getting money from the CIA. Then I read Journey into Madness by Gordon Thomas which contained graphic descriptions of what they did to these poor souls. That’s where I got the idea of patients wearing helmets 24/7 with a tape playing the same message over and over again – it was actually true! Also, there are a lot of books out there by people who claim to have been victims of these experiments. Hallucinatory drugs, electroshock, and prolonged isolation in a dark room – these were some of the methods the hospitals used.

MBA&M: Who was your favorite character and why?

I got the most enjoyment writing Anisa, a real kick-ass b***h, a cold, calculating, and dangerous woman who outsmarts her adversaries and who is able to deal with any situation.

MBA&M: How did you decide the different personalities?

The CIA was looking for a perfect spy, one who would not reveal sensitive information, and who could perform nefarious tasks without remembering what they did, and that was the role assigned to Anisa. Cherry Cummins was the sex bait, a Mata Hari type who could be used to access Anisa’s targets, or trap powerful men into compromising situations for purposes of blackmail. Katrina, the main personality, is shy and introverted, almost boring; someone who could never be expected to behave out of the ordinary. And while she’s totally unaware she is leading alternate lives, these other characters are aspects of her own personality, although of course over-inflated. I think that most women (and men) have urges, from time to time, of doing something wild and exciting, something outside of the humdrum of daily living. So, one could describe Katrina as a female Walter Mitty.

MBA&M: When not writing, what do you do to relax?

We live on a large patch of land where we planted many trees and flowers, and I love tending to them, watering, weeding, and giving them food (mostly bat shit!). It’s quite meditative for me.

MBA&M: What are your immediate plans for the future, in terms of writing?

I’m working on Book 2, Healing, which will not be as light as Book 1, since I want to communicate something of the horrors of what really happened to those unfortunate victims who suffered from the mind control experiments. Yet, the story will bring some closure in a positive way and have a happy ending.

 

Thank you, S.P. Aruna, for stopping by today! We wish you the very best!
