Happy Holidays with Nashoda Rose's Torn From You (+Giveaway)

Today I'm spotlighting Torn From You which is scheduled to release December 20th. Nashoda Rose is a great writer in my opinion and she's such a sweetheart of a person. She has a wonderful knack for hooking and stunning a reader into turning page after page. Then, when you've finished, you want to know just what will happen in the next book in the series. Well, I did anyway. To the point, I actually had to beg her for spoilers, because that's how I roll.

On to the giveaway. In celebration of her new release, I'm setting up a rafflecopter that will run through the end of the year. So plenty of time for you to get your entries in.

Also, I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and great New Year to come. I appreciate all of you that take the time to stop by and visit the blog. So I offer you all a huge thank you for all your continued support. I wouldn't continue to do what I do without each and every one of you.

Blurb: Love is like an avalanche. It hits hard, fast and without mercy.

At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn't doing bossy, and I like sweet.

Then it all shattered.

I was alone and fighting to survive.
When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me.

I was wrong.

(It is recommended to read "With You" the novella first, however not necessary).

*Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. Over 18 years.

This is a love story with some dark elements. Dark contemporary romance. No cliffhanger and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream's story (the band's lead guitarist).

Available for purchase at: Amazon COMING SOON!

Guest post with Caridad Pineiro (+Giveaway)

Please welcome Caridad Pineiro to the blog once more. Always a pleasure to have her here. :)

Caridad: THE CALLING/REBORN series has always been a mix of suspense with paranormal elements, but in BORN TO LOVE, I decided to add a whole new group to the existing world – shifters.

It was a big challenge what with the series being set in New York City.  After all, there are all those skyscrapers, glass, and cement, or at least, that's the way the city seems.  But Manhattan is filled with lots of green spaces, like Central Park.

Pluse as you head north, there is the High Bridge Park and lots of greenways and areas that shifters of all kinds can call home.  I even created the equivalent of a were-ghetto downtown.  In an area that was once populated with immigrant in crowded tenements, there is now a neighborhood of rat shifters with their own shops and hangouts.

Why add something new like an entire world of shifters?

I've always like mixing things up for readers of the series and in the last few books, there has been a blend of human baddies and otherworld monsters. In BORN TO LOVE, you'll be pulled into a mystery around a shifter serial killer and a civil war between full and half-blood shifters.

But THE CALLING/REBORN series is a paranormal romantic suspense series and so mixed in with that suspense are two love stories.

The first is the continuing story of FBI Agent Diana Reyes and vampire Ryder Latimer.  They've survived a lot and at the start of the book, they've just been married.  If you visit my blog, I've got free bonus content for you, namely, the wedding and the big night after.

There is also a romance between Diana's best friend, Dr. Maggie Gonzalez, and Diana's ex-partner, David Harris.  I know many of you have been waiting a long time for Maggie and David's story and I hope you'll like it!

Blurb: Fated to survive…

FBI agent David Harris’s life nearly came to an end during a botched raid. Though he survived, his body and spirit were broken by the perilous underworld he believes his estranged partner, Diana Reyes, has embraced with her Vampire husband. Now, left to a life in a wheelchair, David is angry, distrustful, and withdrawn…

Meant to love…

Seeing her former lover, David, again rekindles feelings long forgotten for Maggie Gonzalez. But she’s been thrown into a terrifying future as a werewolf, threatening to destroy what they might have again.

Destined to die…

Diana Reyes has lived on the edge since her blood contamination by Vampire Ryder Latimer. Her unexpected pregnancy is putting a huge strain on her body, but she’ll do anything to help right the wrongs of the past and help her former partner find happiness…even if it’s in the arms of a werewolf.

Excerpt: Diana woke to a chill in her body and the bite of the early winter air along the parts of her skin not covered by the comforter. She actually welcomed the cold against the heat of her flesh. In the last month, the pregnancy had turned her into a blast furnace, bringing waves of warmth through her body. She had even stripped off the rest of her clothes during the middle of the night in an effort to cool off.

Ryder wrapped his arms around her and spooned against her back, the hard ridge of his morning erection nestled along her bottom.

She smiled and wiggled her hips, inviting him to play and fulfill the promise he had made last night.

He nuzzled the side of her face, dropping a kiss there. “Good morning, darlin’. Are you feeling up to a little morning lovin’?”

She slipped her hand between their bodies and stroked the length of him. “Doesn’t feel little to me.”

He chuckled and drifted his hand down to her center. With sure movements, he slipped it between her thighs to caress her there, rubbing and pressing until she parted her legs to give him greater access.

“Mmm. That feels good,” she said, eyes still closed as she lingered in that dream-like zone between sleep and wakefulness. But it was impossible to stay there when he eased his fingers into her and brought his other hand around to caress her breasts.

A rough cry of need ripped from her. He kissed the sensitive spot behind her ear and whispered, “Easy, darlin’. I won’t leave you wanting.”

No, he wouldn’t. He never left her wanting, physically or emotionally. Sometimes it was hard to handle…when she wasn’t as accommodating of his wishes.

But those thoughts flew out of her mind as he slid into her from behind. The friction and pressure of his cock filling her dragged a moan of pleasure from her. As he moved within her, played with her nipples, each little touch stoking the heat inside her, she allowed herself just to feel and enjoy all that he was to her.

All that they shared together.

The pleasure built between them. Stronger. More demanding. Until the first spark of their release flamed bright and the fire grew ever higher and rougher. They moved together, seeking the peak. Then the conflagration swept over them, its heat searing through them.

Ryder’s harsh breath bathed the side of her face as with one final push he came, and wrapped his arms tight around her. He said her name with such need, it melted the edges of her heart.

“I’m here, Ryder. I’ll always be here for you,” she returned, stroking her hands across the quivering muscles of his arms as they held her. She shifted her hips one last time then surrendered to her release and his embrace.

'Tis the Season To Be Kissed by Amy Andrews

BlurbA down-on-her-romantic-luck kindergarten teacher plans to drown her New Year’s Eve sorrows in a gallon of spiked eggnog, but the arrival of her best friend’s sexy brother threatens to melt the snow piling up outside the tiny Vermont cabin.

Excerpt: Luke chose his words carefully, taking a pull of his beer before he said anything. She might have been intoxicated but this angst was obviously coming from somewhere. “So…this ban on casual sex includes kissing?”

She nodded vigorously and Luke was left in no doubt that kissing was off the table. Damn. “Most definitely,” she added for extra emphasis. “It’s like a gateway drug.”

“A gateway drug?”

She looked directly at him and somehow, sitting in her long johns with no bra, possibly no underwear, and high on eggnog, she still managed to look just like a kindergarten teacher.

“I don’t have good impulse control. Not when it comes to kissing anyway. I like kissing. Hell,” she bugged her eyes at him, “I love kissing. It’s addictive.”

She held his gaze and Luke was captured by the earnestness he saw in hers. “You know those deep, wet, hungry kisses with plenty of tongue and a lot of groaning that taste like cotton candy laced with cocaine and reek of anticipation that can go on for hours until you can barely breathe and every cell feels alive? Just kissing and kissing and kissing like it’s never going to end?”

When she shut her eyes and sighed with her mouth slightly parted, Luke swallowed. Hard. Hell yeah, he remembered those kisses.

She turned her troubled gray gaze to the fire. “But then I want more. I want to feel his hands all over my body. I want to be naked. I want to be horizontal. Or not,” she shrugged. “It depends. And I don’t want to leave until I know all of his kinks and erogenous zones and he knows that I like it when he talks dirty to me as I’m about to come and we’re lying in an exhausted heap barely able to breathe.”

Luke didn’t say anything as she stared into the fire. Her voice had become husky and he could hear a hitch in her breathing. Her admissions sent all the blood rushing from his head and other areas of his body straight to his dick. There was none left for his vocal cords, which seemed to have gone into some weird kind of paralysis.

She sighed and looked at him. “Gateway drug.”

He cleared his throat. “Right,” he said and hoped it came out a lot more manly than it sounded.

“You know what bugs me?” she asked. “Men think because we’re women, we don’t understand what it’s like to be ruled by our libidos. That we don’t need sex as much as them.”

She snorted and Luke blinked at the vehemence of it. “That’s just crap, you know? ’Cause I can tell you, after twelve months of dating and really trying hard to find the one and failing miserably, my libido is really freakin’ loud.”

She looked him up and down, her gaze fanning over every inch of his body, and Luke’s belly clenched at the sudden clarity and frankness there. “How about it?” she said, zeroing in on his mouth like she was already kissing it deep and wet and hungry exactly the way she’d described to him.

Every single cell he owned screamed yes. He’d been in a war zone for nine months and getting laid had been pretty much at the top of his things-to-do-when-I-get-home list. His dick was definitely voting yes.

But he couldn’t do it.

She was drunk. Amusing, cute, and funny as hell with it, but still obviously under the influence. And it didn’t take a genius to figure out Tamara was a good girl who was really going to hate herself tomorrow when she remembered this conversation.

She stood abruptly, things shifting nicely beneath her shirt, her face contorting and looking crazy-fierce for a moment, and Luke knew if she jumped him, he’d be a goner.

It was almost a relief when she said, “I think I’m going to be sick.”
