COVER REVEAL: The Intern by Brooke Cumberland


Synopsis
She’s sexy, fierce, and a loud-mouthed know-it-all…and she’s completely off limits. 

Cecilia isn’t your typical college student. Hell, she isn’t a college student at all, but that doesn’t stop her from applying for one of the biggest and prestigious enterprises in the Midwest.

She wants it, she takes it.
She doesn’t let anything get in her way when it comes to finding out the truth.

When Bentley Leighton, soon-to-be CEO of Leighton Enterprises, meets Cecilia, he’s instantly impressed. He doesn’t have time to train a new intern, but when he sees her that first day, his intentions begin to change.

He’s the boss, she’s the intern.
Nothing can happen. It’s against the company rules.

Then again, rules were made to be broken.

What starts as innocent flirting becomes raveled up into so much more—secrets, lies, deceit.

The Intern is a three-part erotic romance serial.
Not suitable for readers under 18.

Author: T.A. Anderson
Release date: May 5, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designed by Najla Qamber Designs

What consequences would you be willing to suffer for the
truth? How much would you willingly give and take for love?

Ande’s life has changed drastically in the past year. Her mere plans to make it
through culinary school unscathed are a thing of the past. Graduation is on the
horizon, but Ande’s life refuses to slow down and let her enjoy it.

Daniel stole Ande’s heart, then ripped it, unforgivingly, from her chest. He
left her feeling rejected and alone, buried deep under a mountain of questions.
Now he’s ready to let Ande see the darkness of his past, but is it too late?
Has she moved on?

Blake is on the mend and his heart is back with a vengeance. Can people really
change their ways? Is Blake the man for Ande?

With a new found mantra, and bad-ass friends at her side, Ande forces her way
through the questions the men in her life have left her with. When she finally
has the answers, will she regret searching for the truth?

Love and friendships will be tested. Lies will become truths. Who will make the
final cut?


I’m a sarcastic, Disney loving, procrastinator. I hope to
write stories that speak to me first and foremost, then give readers an honest,
non-cookie cutter world to get lost in. I always root for the underdog, so I
try to inject one into each of my stories. I’m in desperate need of Starbucks,
a shower, and sunlight on any given day. I’m certain Chewbacca is my soulmate.
I hope you read my words and enjoy them. If you don’t, I still dig you.

BLOG TOUR: Tainted Pictures by Sarah Robinson

Tainted Pictures (The Photographer Trilogy #2)
Romantic Suspense
Sarah Robinson

Kate Jackson had no idea who she was until she met Derrick Kane and their whirlwind romance turned out to be everything she needed to build a future and heal her past.

But a shocking crime leads Kate to uncover the work of an extremely dangerous serial killer, notoriously called “The Photographer” due to his penance for taking pictures of his victims.

Derrick continues to work to gain back Kate;s trust and to find The Photographer as Kate builds new friendships and finds new skills.

Can she catch The Photographer and learn to trust Derric again? Find out in Tainted Picture’s sequel and the final installment of The Photographer Trilogy.

**Please note that this book is to be followed by a final book in the trilogy, therefore contains a cliffhanger. 
DISCLAIMER: Due to violent and dark subject matter, this book is meant for 18+.

I absolutely loved this book!! It was amazing…filled with romance and suspense.  I could not put this book down.  It is part two in the Photographer Trilogy and must be read in order.  Sarah does an amazing job of drawing the reader in and making them feel everything that is happening in the story!  This book picks up right where Tainted Bodies ended so you MUST read Tainted Bodies first….and to warn you, Tainted Pictures ends in a cliffhanger….but as much as I hate cliffys these books are totally worth it!  Derrick & Kate are amazing characters with amazing chemistry!

Kate just nodded slowly and picked up her phone.  She sent Derrick a text message, not saying anything specific except that she needed him there now.  She just didn’t know what else to tell him over text message and she wasn’t sure she could put a string of words together to talk over the phone.  The joy she had felt all day had come to a crashing halt and everything had taken two steps backwards. 

            Plus the truth was that she did need him.  She needed him right this moment, his arms wrapped around her to hold her up, his breath against her neck reminding her that she was alive, his eyes piercing through her in a way that always made her brain completely shut down.  She needed to shut down in that way that only he was capable of bringing out in her.  She wanted him to be there right now and her anxiety began to raise as she realized how badly every second without him felt to her. 
            Detective Snow was on her phone calling her partner and forensic techs to come sweep the apartment.  Kate went to her bedroom to put on a sweatshirt and some socks, since she was only wearing a tank top and pajama bottoms at that point.  She then went back to the kitchen where Detective Snow was writing in a notepad.  She sat down next to her and began sipping the tea that had been made for her, but she wasn’t even tasting it.
            Finally there was a knock at the door and Kate jumped up out of her chair.  She wasn’t sure how much time had gone by since she had sat down at the table, she felt quite out of it.  All she knew is that Derrick was at the door and she couldn’t handle another moment not having his broad, thick arms clenched around her shoulders and pressing her tightly against his chest.  She rushed to the door, flying right past Detective Snow, and swung open the front door.
            “Good evening, Kate.”  It was Detective McCraig with several crime scene technicians behind him wearing matching windbreakers and carrying cases and boxes of supplies.  Kate felt her entire face fall and practically hit the floor, she couldn’t possibly have looked more disappointed to see him.  McCraig wrinkled his eyebrows at her furtively, wondering why she looked so startled to see him.  
            She didn’t say hello back but instead just stepped to the side and motioned everyone into her apartment.  She grabbed her jacket hanging near the door and pulled it on and stepped into some tennis shoes, getting ready to leave.  She didn’t want to be here while they were making her apartment look like a crime scene again.  She just stood there, dejectedly, and waited for the last person to walk in the door so that she could leave. 
            “Kate?”  Someone called her and she looked up to see the last crime scene technician walk past her, but behind him was a friendly face.  Derrick stood in the doorway, almost blocking the entire entrance with his large, muscular frame. 
            “You beckoned, beautiful?”  He grinned at her, knowing that she needed a hint of normalcy right now.  Kate burst into a smile and rushed to him, throwing her arms around his neck and burying her face into his smooth, soft skin.  He caught her with his arms around her waist and on her back, her feet dangling off the ground as he supported her. 
            “Take me away from here.” Kate whispered to him.
            “You’re with me now and everything else doesn’t matter.  Just you and me.  This is all that matters.  Let’s forget about everything else for tonight?” Derrick touched her chin, gently pulling her to face him.  She nodded in agreement, eager to have him take over and just care for her.  She was too worn out to keep pretending everything was fine.  Everything was not fine. There was a psychotic killer hunting her.  That’s really the very definition of not fine. 
            Seeing Derrick here pushed all of those thoughts away.  The way he expanded to take over the room and envelope her in his arms was mesmerizing.  She glanced up at him, her arms still wrapped around his waist and he head leaning against his shoulder.  His lips were only inches from hers.  Her eyes were searching his, looking for any signs of doubt, any signs that he might betray her again.  She wanted to push that fear away, she couldn’t keep holding onto this much fear.  She loved Derrick and she knew he wasn’t the same man he had been before. 
            “And I’m never going to leave you again.” He whispered, reading the fear in her gaze and stifling it immediately.  He wished he had never made the mistake to abandon her in her time of need and he knew he would happily spend every day for the rest of his life reassuring her that he would never be that man again. 
            The corners of her mouth lifted into a smile and she looked down at his lips and then back up at his deep, gentle eyes.  He wasn’t going to deny her another moment and so he leaned down and kissed her gently.  He squeezed her tighter against him as he did and then he smiled at her in the midst of their kiss and lowered her back down so her feet were on the ground.  With one quick motion, he reached down and one of his arms swept up behind her knees lifting her straight up into his arms.  She squeaked in surprise but didn’t try to fight him.
            “Let’s go home.”  Derrick said to her, as he carried her down the hallway and she curled up in his large arms.

COVER REVEAL: Ripped by Katy Evans

RIPPEDcover

SUMMARY

Every woman wants me–except the one I sing for.

Seattle shakes with anticipation: they call it the concert of the year. They say girls are getting pregnant just thinking about Crack Bikini being in town.

But when you love a girl, you don’t leave her with nothing but a ring and a promise.  Any man with half a brain should know…So what did I expect my girl would do when she saw me again?

Well, for starters, she loathes our music. Particularly the song I wrote about her.  When I sing it, the stadium is in an uproar. Thousands of fans scream my name like I’m a god–but yeah, not her. Crystal clear: the girl’s not happy to see me.

Black hair, black boots, a bad attitude, that’s her — Pandora Stone is a freaking man-eater and she’s out for my blood.  That’s alright.  Let her come at me. Because I’m out for her heart and, this time, there’s no way she can stop me.

REVIEW TOUR: Stoke of Love by Melissa Foster

Banner (1)

Cover (5)Blurb

Kate Parello runs a volunteer program in Belize for Artists for International Aid, where she deals with self-centered artists who use the program as a means to repair their marred reputations. She loves the country, the people, and what AIA stands for, but too many diva volunteers have turned her off to press-seeking celebrities altogether and left her questioning the value of the volunteer program. When she meets incredibly handsome and charming Sage, he stirs emotions she hasn’t felt for ages, even though he represents the things she despises.

Laid-back artist Sage Remington escapes his wealthy lifestyle in the Big Apple for a two-week journey of self-discovery to figure out how a guy who has so much can feel so empty. When he meets ultra-organized Kate, who lives her life the way he’s always dreamed of living his, the attraction is too hot to ignore, but Sage is there to figure out what’s missing in his life, not to find a woman.

Every look, and every late-night chat in the romantic jungle brings them closer together, but Sage can barely think past stripping away Kate’s misconceptions about him. Kate fights him every step of the way—even though she finds it hard to ignore the strikingly handsome, generous-to-a-fault artist who wants to do nothing more than right the wrongs of the world—and love her to the ends of the earth.

 

Review:

I enjoyed this book very much.  As always Melissa has an amazing way of making the reader feel like they were right there when things were happening!  Kate and Sage have great chemistry and are very different from each other but somehow these two fall for each other…but they both have pasts that can rip them apart…Will Kate stop fighting Sage at every turn….will Sage get through to Kate and make her realize they belong together?
