Some Bets Are Better than Others #mfrwhooks

Hey, it’s Wednesday again. That’s means it’s time for book hooks.

logo book hooksI’ve got another little snippet of one of my sexiest romance so far, Winning the Bet. The first time the readers experience the heroine and hero together.

Enjoy.

“Fridays are always so dreadfully slow. It makes the day go a bit faster,” Phillip declared. “And it’s harmless fun.”

“Then why don’t we ever bet on something different? Like who will get the strangest guy or the oldest woman?” Maggie shook her head. “Or the most frightened, dependent child or skeletal-thin girl?” She glanced at Phillip. “Or the prettiest girl?”

“Well, what would be the fun of that?”

“Oh, Phillip, you will never get it.” Karen snorted at the man before staring hard at Maggie. “And you are so…unbelievable. Your divorce was final six months ago.” She moved closer to the desk and leaned over her. “Hell, your marriage was over for a year before you even filed for divorce.”

She didn’t want to think about that. Maggie didn’t want to think of her marriage at all. She was just glad she’d never had a child with the bastard. “I shouldn’t have ever married him.”

“Maybe not,” Karen said. “But that has nothing to do with the sexy guy out there.”winningthebet_medium

Maggie swallowed down bitterness as she slid from her stool and walked through the lab toward the opened door. She peeked into the waiting area, spying the man in question sitting in one of the black chairs near the middle. One man sat in a seat opposite the doorway and two older gentlemen and one woman sat at the farthest end. The younger man moved and she refocused her attention on him. Wide shoulders filled the expanse of his seat, one hard, tanned arm lay on the side of his chair, while the other lay in his lap. Both hard-muscled legs stretched out toward the empty chairs in front of him.

“Hello.”

Got her staring. Interested? (I hope you are maybe a little bit.) Here’s where you can get the book.

Love On The Risky Side–Mariah Ankenman

Welcome to a Book Blast.

Read the BLURB here:MediaKit_BookCover_LoveontheRiskySide_w11064_750

Falsely accused of the murder of her best friend, Kayla Jenkins is on the run for her life. She ends up lost in dark, snowy woods off some backcountry road in the middle of nowhere. Frightened and colder than she’s ever been in her life, she almost thinks she’s hallucinating when a warrior on a white steed saves her.

In all his years as the sheriff of Peak Town, Colorado, Jake Ryder has never come across a half-frozen woman alone in the woods. She’s terrified…and lying to him, yet something about her calls to him on a primal level.

Even with her trust of law enforcement lower than the harsh temperature, Kayla finds it difficult to keep her secrets hidden from the kind and far too handsome sheriff. But as her faith in Ryder grows, she not only risks the real murderer finding her, but losing the one thing she has searched for her whole life and only just found…love.

And one of the books EXCERPTS here:

“My name is Jake Ryder, but most folks call me Ryder.” When she didn’t return the introduction, he continued. “Can I ask how you came to be all the way out here in the middle of the night?”

Giving a guarded glance from the horse back to him, she simply said, “Got lost.”

And they say women were chatty. Hell, he had a pet parrot as a kid that talked more than this woman. Not a problem. As sheriff, he was used to interrogating uncooperative suspects. Not that she was a suspect, yet.

“Got lost…” He looked her over. Big, red, winter coat, long dark slacks and—were those high heels? “…shopping?”

Honestly, who the hell wears heels in the woods?

She scowled, wrapping her arms around herself. “My car ran off the road. I—I got out to find help. Wandered off the road and got lost.”

Something about her story smelled like Wind Chaser’s stall after feeding time. “Why didn’t you call Triple A?”

Her gaze darted to the side. “Cell died.”

Yeah, and I’m the King of England.

“You need a ride back to your car?”

Her eyes widened. “On that thing?”

“Her name is Wind Chaser, and yes. Did you think I had a car hidden in the trees?”

Her jaw clenched at his sarcasm. Well, excuse him. It was dark, cold, and the last thing he wanted to do was be out here trying to pull a story out of Ms. Lying-Crazy-Lady.

And want to know more about the author? Here is it.

Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole

Cover_Seaside_HeartsSweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you’ll be begging to enter their circle of friends!

Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster’s steamy romance novel Seaside Hearts. The stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

In HEARTS at SEASIDE…

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

Excerpt One:

There should be an unwritten rule about drooling over construction workers, but Jenna Ward was sure glad there wasn’t. She sat on the porch of the Bookstore Restaurant, soaking up the deliciousness of the three bronzed males clad in nothing more than jeans and glistening muscles that flexed and bulged like an offering to the gods as they forced thick, sticky tar into submission. Their jeans hung low on strong hips, gripping their powerful thighs like second skins and ending in scuffed and tarred work boots. What red-blooded woman didn’t get worked up over a gorgeous shirtless man in work boots?

Heaven help her, because she needed this distraction to take away her desire for Peter Lacroux, which went hand in hand with summers on the Cape and consumed her in the nine months they were apart. She zeroed in on one particularly handsome blond construction worker. His hair was nearly white, his jaw square and manly. She wanted to march right out to the middle of the road that split the earth between the restaurant and the beach and be manhandled into submission. Right there on the tar. Wrestled and groped until all thoughts of Pete evaporated.

“Wipe the drool from your chin, chica.” Amy Maples handed Jenna a margarita and, pointedly, a fresh napkin, as she settled into the chair across from her. “Goodness, woman. What’s up with you this summer? I swear you’re in heat. I can practically smell your pheromones from over here.”

Jenna gulped her drink and righted her red bikini top, which was trying its hardest to relieve itself of her enormous breasts. Even her bikini top was ready for a man. A real man. A man who craved her as much as she craved him.

Jenna reluctantly turned away from Testosterone Road and faced her best friends. The women she had spent her summers with here in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, for as long as she could remember and the women she hoped would help her through her most important summer ever.

Who Will Win the Bet? #MFRWhooks

Book Hooks Wednesday is here. First time I’ve taken part in the #mfrwhooks, but I’m logo book hookshoping it will be an on-going thing.. Here’s a few lines from one of my sexiest romance, Winning the Bet.

Hope you enjoy it.

 

Sample–

She twisted toward Phillip. “I didn’t want to take your stupid bet, so you decided to change it.”

“There’s no new bet, girl.”

She didn’t believe him. “Then what is Jack doing here?”

Phillip shrugged. “Karen invited him.”

“Don’t act like you don’t know what’s going on.” Maggie swallowed down the unexpected hint of anticipation butterflying in her stomach. “If I wanted to go out with him, I would have asked him myself.”

He looked startled. “Really?”

“Yeah, really.”

Phillip wiggled his brows and leaned toward her. “Then why didn’t you?”

“Because I didn’t want to.” So what if it was a lie? How would her friend ever figure that out? “I don’t want to go out with anyone. I’m happy with the way things are with me now.”

He shook his head. “How can you be happy when you go to bed every night alone?”

And here’s the blurb of the story–

Now Maggie has something else to worry about—her heart.

Maggie and Jack were introduced to the kinkier side of sex by partners with the wrong idea about the lifestyle. They are now careful and leery around others, and for good reason. Jawinningthebet_mediumck is afraid he will hurt the women he dates, and Maggie is just afraid.

The two live in the same apartment complex, and they’re very aware of each other, but that’s as far as things have gone. Neither one of them knows how to get past the mental block. Then one day Jack shows up at the VA clinic where Maggie works, and their lives begin to change due to the interfering actions of her coworkers and a stupid bet.

When Jack suddenly shows up at their usual Friday night dinner out, Maggie ends up spending the night with him. It’s a passionate, sexy encounter, and they both begin to hope that they might be able to get past their previous experiences. But things are still not well. The two may have given each other their bodies, but now they have to decide if they can give their hearts. And the trust required to do that doesn’t come easily.

Content Warning: contains strong language, sexual content, and light BDSM

Need Help on What to Write

I can’t figure out what manuscript to work on along with the fourth book of my Winter Creek, Montana series, so I’ve decided to give away the first paragraph of each one of my unfinished ones.

Maybe I’m strange, but I like to work on two manuscripts at a time. When I get blocked in one, I have the other as backup.

And I always get blocked somewhere in the middle. Never fails.

Here’s the first paragraph of The Marshall’s Lady for you.

She wanted to be anywhere but here.

Short and to the point, yet it set up Kim’s story well.

And here are the choices.

A Search for Forgiveness

(Actually this is the one I should choose because I only have a chapter and a half to write. I have to fix up the conflict a bit, though.)

Her temper would get the better of her, if she wasn’t careful. Rina needed to get her anger under control before she did something really crazy. Like strangle that lawyer. Dragging in a cleansing breath, she peaked out the window of the diner, seeing nothing but the shadowy reflection of an unhappy, upset woman.

The Treasure Myth

(Mystery with a ghost and a buried treasure.)

She would recognize Jed Forrest anywhere. “What are you doing here?”

False Allegations

(Romantic suspense involving stolen diamonds.)

Her hazy gaze focused on the sign showing she’d reached her final destination. Colorful letters spelled out the name of her new temporary home—Hidden River RV Park, as long trapped tears escaped and slid slowly down her cheeks. Over a year had passed since her husband’s fatal accident; hundreds of miles separated her from the site. From the outskirts of Atlanta to a small town a few dozen miles from San Antonio, Texas, she’d traveled the interstates with no tears.

Matchmaker

(The first book about a trio of elderly matchmakers. Contemporary romance)

Sunlight just began to brighten the sky when Abby Thomas slipped out of her vehicle. She took in the quiet calmness, breathing in the peace of the silence. Soon the air would be filled with noise and confusion, talking, yelling voices and traffic sounds, but it also would be ripe with the scents of sweet and savory bake goods.

Untitled

(Paranormal about a psychic and her pain-in-the-butt (dead) grandmother.)

For the first time in longer than she could remember, Jane Bellwood slept well. No nightmares invaded her rest, causing her to moan and cry out in the dead of night. No spectral man or woman, no boy or girl, no child screamed in her mind for help. For once, she awoke refreshed and rested.

Do any speak to you?

 

First Seven Paragraphs

This is the first seven paragraphs of my current project, The Marshall’s Lady. This is book four in my Winter Creek series with Beachwalk Press. I’m about half of the way finished with it. Be aware this is the first draft, unedited version. Research is still needed to find out the name of the assistant living facility, and to see if I ever gave her grandfather’s last name. It’s the heroine’s mother’s father, but I have it written as her father’s.

First Seven Paragraphs

She wanted to be anywhere but here.

As soon as Kimberley Ferguson walked out of the main building of the NAME OF ASSISTANT LIVING toward the line of apartments behind it, she sensed coming here today might be a mistake. Would her grandfather even remember her? Would he want to see her if he did? Forcing a breath into her empty lungs, she stopped near a bench and wrapped her unbuttoned coat around her. You need to leave, Kim, before Jen or Ed show up—or Dad. Her visiting would only confuse grandfather. He wasn’t well now.

“Ma’am, can I help you?”

The voice tore through her uneasiness, twisting her around and away from the bench. She spied a nurse standing near one of the apartment doorways. Dressed all in white with a stethoscope hanging around her neck and a clipboard in her hand, the woman studied her with suspicious eyes. “Are you alright?”

“Yes, I’m…fine.” Kim traveled her hands down her knee-length coat, wiping the dampness from them. She’d never been this nervous before, so unsure of her next move or word. She hated feeling this way. “I’m…visiting my…grandfather. Edward Ferguson.”

“Oh,” she said, eyes narrowing as if not believing her. “You’re one of Professor Ferguson’s granddaughters? I thought he only had the one, Jen.”

“I’m Kimberley,” she answered, not allowing the nurse’s attitude to upset her. Jen and Ed, as well as her father and her Aunt Mabel, were regular visitors to grandfather’s assistant living apartment. This was her first time. If she’d arrived with her aunt today, she wouldn’t need to go through this nurse’s interrogation. It would be easier on all concerned.

 

The heroine is the younger sister of Jen from the first book of the series, Forgotten Memories. The hero is one of the three working board members, Jack, who plays the Marshall and is an ex-cop.

Book Blast–He Takes The Cake–J. Lynn Rowan

BLURB:

Life is good for Tess Gardiner: Her Savannah, Georgia, bakery and cafe is thriving. She’sperf5.000x8.000.indd earned Master Pastry Chef status from the American Culinary Federation. And she’s attending a regional culinary convention in Charleston, where she’s been invited to sit on a small business panel discussion. The opportunity to tout her success will, hopefully, lead to bigger and better things in her professional life. As for her personal life? The relative contentedness she’s enjoyed for years receives a sudden jolt when she comes face to face with Tyler Brinks, the ex-boyfriend she summarily dismissed from her life eight years ago.

Tyler’s success as a highly-trained chef has launched him into the stratosphere. He already owns one ridiculously successful restaurant, and he’s aggressively working on plans for a second. But he’s never quite gotten over Tess, and he’s never really been sure what actually went wrong between them. So when a pastry and baking competition is announced for the week following the culinary convention in Charleston, Ty jumps at the chance to tempt Tess with the challenge of being his partner, giving him the perfect opportunity to remind her how good they once were together.

As the competition heats up in the kitchen, it soon becomes clear to Tess that Ty has more than cream puffs and cupcakes on his mind. And she can’t deny that her feelings for Ty never truly cooled, but have been simmering all these years, despite the way their relationship ended. Now Ty’s attention has her wondering—is this just the path to final closure? Or could this be a second chance at true love?

Excerpt One:

Ty comes to a stop a couple paces away and settles his hands on his hips. “Hey, Tess. Long time, no see.”

“Yeah, well . . .”

That’s got to be the lamest opener ever. I clear my throat, relieved that my voice is working at all, and muster up my pride.

But before I can come up with a real comment, Ty says, “I saw you listed on the small business panel discussion. Must be exciting.”

“This from a featured presenter.” Squaring my shoulders, I tilt my head slightly and jerk my chin at him. “You always walk around in your chef’s coat?”

“Only when I’m hoping to run into my ex-girlfriends at culinary conventions.”

The teasing note in his deep voice has my eyes narrowing. “Tyler—”

He holds up his hands, palms out, and chuckles. “Geez, I’m kidding. Calm down, Contessa.”

“Do. Not. Call. Me. That.” I grind the words out from between my teeth.

“Wow. Still touchy, are we?” He crosses his arms again and tips his head back while he surveys me. We don’t have a big difference between us in height, but whenever he does that, it makes me feel about five inches tall. “I was actually prepping for a demonstration, and was just taking a little break.”

Irritation slides through me, both at Ty as well as myself. I shouldn’t be letting the old hurts bubble up like this. I haven’t seen him in eight years. Even if we parted on the worst terms possible, he deserves the benefit of the doubt, as a fellow culinary professional if nothing else.

“Sorry.” I make a show of folding up the pamphlet, forgotten until now, and sliding it into my bag. The move allows me to break eye contact and re-center myself. By the time I look up again, Ty’s smirk is back in place. Hoisting my bag into a more secure position on my shoulder, I fold my arms in a mirror of his posture. “You’ve probably got a busy few days ahead. Odds of us running into each other again are slim, so . . .”

A knowing light flashes in his eyes, even as he offers a handshake. Against my better judgment and with only the barest hesitation, I accept.

Fires start popping up all along my nerves the instant our palms touch. By the time I realize my mistake, it’s too late to pull away.

Ty gives my hand a gentle squeeze. “Maybe I’ll see you around.”

He releases me, takes a couple steps backward, and gives me a wink before turning to walk away. I stand there, my hand still hanging in the air like a limp fish.

Maybe I’ll see you around?

Coming from Ty, that’s not a possibility.

It’s a promise.
