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 . . .

About the author:

Author Shot

The story goes like this: While on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time, so her husband took her comments about “giving that writing thing a serious go” to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it. Today, Lauren is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than 60 novels and novellas across several genres.

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

Margaret Mallory abandoned a career as a lawyer to become a romance novelist. Why this surprised everyone, she doesn’t know. Who wouldn’t rather have thrilling adventures with handsome Highlanders than write briefs and memos? Margaret lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband, a goofy dog, and a crabby cat.

~~~

Sue-Ellen Welfonder is a Scotophile whose burning wish to make frequent trips to the land of her dreams led her to a twenty-year career with the airlines. Now a full-time writer, she’s quick to admit that she much prefers wielding a pen to pushing tea and coffee. She never watches television, loves haggis, and writes at a 450-year-old desk that once stood in a Bavarian castle.

#VISIT AND #GIVEAWAY WITH KATIE LANE,AUTHOR OF “TROUBLE IN TEXAS”…

MBA&M AND GRAND CENTRAL PUBLISHING PRESENTS….

Ready for a little Texas Heat!

Join Bestselling author

Katie Lane’s TROUBLE IN TEXAS blog tour!

WELCOME KATIE!

What do you feel makes cowboys and Texas so enduring to readers? 

KATIE: Cowboys are alpha men who are honest and hard working.  Texas is filled with small towns that take us back to a simpler life that’s far removed from the hustle and bustle of big cities.

How hard is it to write a series? and how many will be in this series? 

KATIE: The easy part is that you have most of the characters already.  The hard part is keeping the characters fresh and interesting.  Bringing in Miss Hattie’s Henhouse was my way of keeping things fresh in the Deep in the Heart of Texas series.  I didn’t really set out to write a series.  I just had this idea about a woman searching for her long-lost twin sister.  But once I finished Going Cowboy Crazy, I realized that I had a lot of ideas that might work for other books.  Fortunately, people fell in love with Bramble and I’m getting my opportunity to write those stories.  As of now, there will be seven books in the series.  Beau’s story, Flirting with Texas, will be out in July 2013.  Brianne’s story will be next.  And finally, Beckett’s.  After that, who knows :o)

List five words to describe your writing style? 

KATIE: Fun.  Sexy.  Zany.  Character-driven.  (Does a hyphenated word count as two?)

 

Best,

Thank you, Katie,for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit with us and our readers today! What a pleasure to have you with us again.

Trouble in Texas:

Pages: 352ISBN-13: 9781455515707

On Sale Date: 12/18/2012

THERE’S A FOX IN THE HENHOUSE
Inheriting the most notorious house of ill repute in Texas can spell trouble for a girl’s reputation . . . especially when she’s Elizabeth Murphy, Bramble’s prim and proper librarian. Yet when she discovers a buck-naked cowboy handcuffed to a four-poster bed, she forgets all about the town gossips. Elizabeth has sworn off men, but the stranger’s kisses melt her resolve faster than ice cream on a hot summer day.
Waking up in Miss Hattie’s Henhouse isn’t how Brant Cates reckoned on getting to the bottom of his great-granddaddy’s murder. The plan was to solve the centuries-old crime, then get the heck out of Dodge. But after meeting Elizabeth and discovering that the buttoned-up beauty is a sexy siren in disguise, he just can’t pull himself away.
Now Brant needs Elizabeth to finally put his past to rest, but is she willing to risk her future on Bramble’s newest bad boy?

~~~~~

About Katie Lane:

 

Katie Lane’s interest in romance was sparked in high school in the backseat of a ’65 Mustang-okay, so maybe it wasn’t romance as much as raging teenage hormones. Still, coupled with a wild imagination, those make-out sessions inspired many a steamy storyline along with a strong belief that true love does prevail. Katie lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with the owner of that Mustang and would love to hear from her readers.

WICKEDLY,WITTY HISTORICAL ROMANCE AUTHOR VICKY DREILING AND GIVEAWAY….

GRAND CENTRAL PUBLISHING AND MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE PRESENTS…..
WICKEDLY,WITTY HISTORICAL ROMANCE AUTHOR: VICKY DREILING!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the UK allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her “Trouble.”
When she’s not writing, Vicky enjoys reading, films, concerts, and, most of all, long lunches with friends. She holds degrees in English literature and marketing. A native Texan, she shares her home with her daughter and a spoiled mini-lop rabbit who lives in a slightly gnawed cardboard cottage.You can learn more at: www.VickyDreiling.net
WELCOME VICKY TO MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE!!

MBA&M: What made you decide to write historical romance?

VD: I bought my first romance accidentally. Seriously, I didn’t know it was a romance until I got home and read the back cover. I’d never read a romance before and was a bit wary. But then I started reading Judith McNaught’s ALMOST HEAVEN and found myself completely captivated. Of course, I went to the bookstore to purchase all of her books I could find. Since that time, I’ve read other romance subgenres, but historical romance remains my favorite. So that’s why I write it.

MBA&M: What are the challenges in writing a historical romance series?

VD: My books are trilogies, rather than series. When readers found out that my first trilogy did not have a series name, they gave it one! My trilogy became known as the fan-named “How to” series. J  The main difference for readers is that each of my books is a standalone. All three books can be read in any order. I think this is helpful to readers who are just discovering newer authors like me. Interestingly, several readers have told me that they read the first two books again, back-to-back, and said that there was a slightly richer experience for them. But again, all three books can be read in any order. 

 

 

MBA&M: What is on the horizon for you?

VD: I’m writing a new trilogy for my publisher set in Regency England (it’s my favorite!). I will also be publishing a digital prequel to the new trilogy that is tentatively scheduled for fall 2012. One of the minor characters from HOW TO RAVISH A RAKE is the hero in my next book. I’m very excited about the new story. If readers are on Pinterest, they can find my Secret Regency Book board here: http://bit.ly/yOZfxS

Other than that, I’ve got several appearances this year at conferences as well as speaking engagements. So 2012 is shaping up to be a very busy year for me. Readers can check my website and blog for upcoming information. Also, readers can sign up for the newsletter to get the most up-to-date information about contests, behind-the-scenes features, and new playlists for my books.
