About The Book

indeepfinalTitle: In Deep

Author: Kella McKinnon

Genre: Contemporary Romance

“I never thought it would go this far… that a man with such terrible secrets would steal my heart and make me want him so much, when his life of danger and lies should have made me want nothing more than to turn and run. I understood him, you see. I knew that beneath all of that money and power, and yes… violence, was a man in desperate need of love. So desperate that he took from me something I wasn’t ready to give: my future.”

Brielle Dalton thought the few months in Vegas she needed to finish her dissertation would also be a chance to have some fun before ‘real life’ took over. But she never counted on meeting Cristos Vicario, the irresistible but troubled owner of the Adagio casino. The attraction was instant and all-consuming, but in the beginning neither knew that their lives had crossed before, and the result had been nothing short of tragedy. By the time Brielle discovers who Cristos really is, and what he has done in a reckless attempt to keep her, it’s too late. She’s already in too deep.

Author Bio

Hello everyone! Let me introduce myself. Though I used to work in Boston in the biotech industry, I’m now loving life on a small farm in New England where my husband and I are raising our three children. Between taking care of chickens and goats and shuttling the kids to dance class and piano lessons, I find the time to pursue my own interest: writing. I relish creating stories and bringing my characters to life on the written page, and each book is a labor of love.

I’m passionate about the romance genre because of the emotional journey a well-written novel can take the reader on, and my goal with each of my books is to do the same for my readers. I would love to hear from you at kellamckinnon.com, or kellamckinnon@yahoo.com.

Book Excerpt Skin Deep

skindeepbanner

Excerpt time! Today I’m sharing an excerpt from M/M contemporary romance “Skin Deep”.

Book Excerpt

Liam checked his hair in the small mirror tacked to the inside of the locker door as the other employees trickled out of the room to start their shifts. He pushed the locker closed to join them and spun the combination lock determined to pretend Eric was nothing but a piece of furniture. He didn’t intend to stick around for a conversation.

“Your name’s Liam, right?” Eric asked from the opposite side of the room as the last co-worker disappeared into the hall.

Apparently, he was too late. “Yes.”

“Should I call you that or do you prefer ‘Angel’?”

The name slapped his heart into a gallop and he jerked his gaze to Eric. No one had called him Angel for over six months. He hadn’t missed it.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” He swallowed, his voice an almost breathless quiver that didn’t sound convincing even to him.

“Sure you do.” Eric smiled and opened his locker. “You’re that hot kid on the porn site. I’ve been a fan for a long time. It’s nice to finally meet you.”

His palms were slick with sweat as he tried to pretend he really didn’t have any idea what Eric was talking about, stuffing them in the pockets of his pants to hide the trembling.

“That’s not me.”

“I have to admit, you look smaller on the screen but I guess they wanted it that way.” Eric ignored the denial.

“What do you want?” He glared at him fed up with the conversation.

“Nothing at the moment, though I wouldn’t mind hooking up later if you have the time.”

“I’m seeing someone.”

“So?” Eric shrugged and hung up his coat. “I’m not talking about a date, just a hook up. Nobody has to know. Consider me a dress rehearsal for the next video. You’re still doing those, right? I’d hate to think you gave that up to work here.”

“I’m not interested.” He ignored the comment.

He wasn’t going to get into a discussion about his non-existent porn career with a guy who only liked him for his ass. He knew the type. They never listened.

“What?” Eric glanced his direction. “You don’t do it for free?”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about and even if I did I’m not interested.” He said again with enough conviction to sound believable.

Eric raked him with a lustful stare that made him shiver.

“Yes, you do. I’d know those pretty eyes anywhere…and that fuckable mouth. It’s you so why don’t you drop the act, Angel.”

“Don’t call me that.”

“Fine…Liam.” Eric pushed his locker closed and stepped closer to stuff a piece of paper between two of the buttons on Liam’s dress shirt before striding toward the door. “That’s my number. Call me.”

About the Book

Alyssa Summers is not the kind of girl who cheats. Sure, she’s prone to over-indulgence. She spent years spiraling out of control before she checked herself into an eating disorder clinic. But she’s under control now. She spends her days locked in the prison of her apartment, waiting for permission from her fiancé, Ryan, to resume her acting career.

And then she meets Ryan’s business partner, Luke Lawrence. Tall, handsome, and disarmingly direct, Luke is the perfect temptation. There’s something so appealing about him, and it’s not just his big, brown eyes or his hard body. He’s witty, confident, completely apathetic to her engagement.

Alyssa knows Luke is after more than friendship, but she can’t resist his pursuit. The more time she spends with him, the more she wants him. But Ryan has done so much for her. How could she betray him? Even if she wants Luke more than she’s ever wanted anything. Even if this is the first time, in so long, that she’s wanted anything at all?

Author Interview Orange Blossom Book Tour

orangeblossombanner

I’m hosting an interview for the book tour for NA contemporary romance “Orange Blossom”. I hope you enjoy the interview!

1) What’s the hardest part of being an author?

For me, publishing. I am a very private and antisocial person and I don’t like interacting with people. I hate social media. I don’t like technology. I didn’t go to school for marketing and I hate everything about this process, which feels like a scam. So many of the writers I’ve met are greedy and desperate for money and their advice is always to put money first. That’s sick and I hate it. I don’t write to make money. I write because I have a story to tell. I write in a ton of genres and I don’t appeal to the “market,” but I find that entire concept repulsive and manipulative. I’m not writing an ad; I’m writing a book. To be told what to include, that people will buy it if you use certain elements, it’s disgusting that writers do it – and it’s sad that readers are so easily bought.


2) Can you give us a short synopsis of Orange Blossom?

It is a story of love – of being there for someone through the darkest moments as well as the easy moments. It’s about truly loving another person, of putting yourself aside for another person and opening your life to someone else. It’s about knowing how to be in love as well.


3) Is this part of a series, or stand-alone?

It is a part of a series, although each book could be read in any order. Personally, I think it helps to go in order because the series is called Flowering and is about growth, but then again, that’s not marketable.


4) How many hours per day do you spend writing
?

I don’t. I’m a binge writer and I write when inspired. Usually when I write, I write all day. When I force it, I end up throwing out what I write.

5) What is your favorite book in the same genre as yours?

I haven’t read a New Adult book I like, but I love Jodi Picoult and Courtney Summers. I guess I feel like my books are a midpoint between them, since Jodi Picoult writes realism about adults and Courtney Summers writes YA.


6) What are you working on now?

A YA fantasy and about ten other things.

Book Info

young pretty kissing wedding couple against skyTitle: Orange Blossom

Author: Sarah Daltry

“I’ve never understood a year. A year was always a measurement of something bad for me. A year in my father’s prison sentence, a year since my mom’s death, a year left of school before I could get far, far away from here. Now, as I look down the end of my college career, with only a little more than a semester to go, a year seems like something magical. It has been a year since Lily chose me, since she sat with me on the old swing set and made a decision that I was worthy of her. And every minute of the entire year has been better than the last.”

You already know their stories: Lily, the perfect princess, always living someone else’s life. And Jack, the broken boy, who had stopped believing in hope. Somehow, though, they found each other and what was one night blossomed into a love story.

Now, a year later, Jack and Lily are dreaming of the future. Despite all of his promises to himself that he would never be indebted to anyone, Jack makes a new promise – this time to Lily – that he will be there for her forever. But when life unravels for them, he starts to pull away, and Lily worries he’s out of reach for good.

When Jack does the unthinkable, Lily is left destroyed. Is it possible to have a happily ever after? Does love ever really save anyone?

Book Blurb

Row of columns (Italy, Vatican)Ruiz Albury went to the Bahamas for one reason, to get back what was his as the rightful heir of his father with rage and resentment that has been festering for years.  But once he gets there, he’s treated as part of a family, shown love and care he’d only dreamed about and all his carefully laid plans are forgotten. In fact, they are buried deep in his mind when he meets Melody Sinclair.

Melody Sinclair thought she’d found one of the good ones.  She loved Ruiz and trusted him enough to make him a part of her life, only to have it shuttered when she finds out his secret. Heart broken and distraught, she gets drunk and decides to get over him by getting under someone else, only for it to turn out to be the worst mistake of her life.  Trapped, with nowhere to turn, Ruiz sweeps in like a knight in shining armor ready to battle her dragon.

This is the last instalment of The Albury Affairs Series.

Book #1 Her Venice Affair

Book #2 His Bahamas Affair

Book #3 His Paris Affair

Book Excerpt

Ruiz slouched in the lawn chair, a bottle of beer in one hand and his cell phone in the other, watching and listening to the sounds of a happy family as the knife of jealousy repeatedly stabbed him in the chest.

He watched as his sister Riana blew her husband a kiss to where he stood at the grill with his best friend Matthew and with a broad smile Allan caught it and pressed it to his chest over his heart. She smiled lovingly at him as she strolled rocking the new addition to her family, Allan Patrick Sinclair III, to sleep. Ruiz knew his nine month old nephew would wake almost immediately after, once the laughter and other happy noises grew louder, penetrating his haze of sleep. He didn’t like to be left out. Ruiz could relate.

And just a few feet away from him, Reno and Loraine were having one of their famous rows that usually ended with them sneaking off together and emerging an hour later with the biggest grins on their faces. Loraine was now four months pregnant so there was no sneaking away this time. They all had their fingers crossed—Reno especially—that she would carry this baby to term with no complications. After the attack over a year ago that resulted in Loraine losing their first baby together they had fingers and toes crossed. Sure they were all worried, treating her like a fragile egg but Reno was a little extreme. From Loraine’s complaints they barely had sex which apparently was like torture to a horny hormonal pregnant woman—who knew? Ruiz was sure one day his brother would lose it and wrap his wife in bubble wrap. The attention was driving Loraine nuts considering she was barely showing. At the beginning of her pregnancy, she had been very understanding but now she really looked ready to punch Reno when she stood up mere seconds after he settled her down on the cushioned chair. Amy, Matthew’s wife watched, quietly laughing as she cradled her second son, seven months old Ethan in her arms.

Why couldn’t he have his happily ever after? Did he not deserve it? Wasn’t his entire life difficult enough to earn one?

Release Day An American Girl in Italy

We’re celebrating the release day today for “An American Girl in Italy”, a contemporary romance novel by author Aubrie Dionne.

To celebrate the release, the author is offering Italy booklets for giveaway. Scroll down to find out more!

About An American Girl in Italy

an American Girl in italy2An Italian paradise is the last thing she wants… but the one thing she needs!

 Surely any girl would kill for the chance to tour Italy’s most famous cities for the summer? To experience the warmth of the Tuscan sun, the culinary delights of the pizzerias and caffés and to stroll along the cobbled streets of the City of Love itself…

Any girl apart from ambitious oboist Carly Davis that is! For her, the Easthampton Civic Symphony’s latest European tour is one massive inconvenience. She can’t even put her smartphone down long enough to snap a picture of the Coliseum.

Only, there’s one Italian attraction that Carly hadn’t quite expected to be a part of the tourist route…

Tour guide Michelangelo is as dark and delicious as Carly’s morning espresso. And when she needs a few lessons in the language of love to land her an important gig, he’s a more than capable tutor.

But with her promising career back in Boston, can Carly really afford to lose her heart in Italy?
