Cover/Excerpt Reveal - Just For Fun by Rosalind James




Contemporary Romance
(Escape to New Zealand #4)
Date Published: 12/8/12

    

What if the person who broke your heart turned out to be the only one who could mend it?
 Nic Wilkinson is a responsible, organized, disciplined rugby player at the top of his game. Emma Martens is a sometimes-scattered, often-emotional, and always-broke would-be designer with a big chip on her shoulder where Nic’s concerned.
 They have no history together, except one perfect week. Nothing in common anymore, except the most important thing of all.
 Getting together again would be messy. Complicated. Scary. And, just maybe, worth every risk.




EXCERPT

“Mum!” Zack burst in through the front door. “It was brilliant!” He kicked his shoes off impatiently, dropped his rugby boots next to them before struggling out of his jacket. Nic followed him in, grabbed the jacket and hung it on the brightly painted rack next to the door when Zack would have dropped it on the floor. 
Emma reached out for a hug that, Nic saw, the boy was still willing to give his mother, at least here at home. Her eyes met Nic’s as she looked over her son’s head. How did she always look so soft? So . . . pettable? She was wearing another sweater, that was all, he told his troublesome libido. Another light, lacy one, prettily trimmed once again. A pale pink cardigan with pearly shell buttons, edged in cream, over a long stretchy top and leggings. She looked like an invitation to cuddle. Like the best blankie ever.
“Can Nic stay for dinner, Mum?” Zack asked excitedly, offering a welcome distraction from his wayward train of thought. “He could help me tell you all the things we did. We’re having spaghetti!” he told Nic. “It’s really good.”
“Can’t, mate. Sorry,” Nic put in hastily at Emma’s instinctive shake of the head. “But I’ll have a glass of water, if one’s on offer.”
“Sit down,” Emma told him. “Please.” 
Nic slipped off his own shoes before heading to the couch with Zack. “Cheers,” he said as she came back from the kitchen to hand each of them a glass, then took her own seat in a small armchair next to the couch, the only other option the little room offered.
“You look tired,” she said abruptly. “And bruised. Are you OK?”
“Just a bit confused on the sleep schedule, still,” Nic admitted. “I took a wee pill on the flight home, but it never works that well.”
“It’s a long way, Mum,” Zack put in. “South Africa’s really far.”
Nic took a long drink of the cold water, looked around for something to set the glass on. “Coaster?”
“Just put it down,” Emma told him. 
“Don’t want to spoil this,” he said, looking more closely at the coffee table. The simple rectangle had been transformed into a forest of ferns, with native birds peeping out from underneath fronds, perched in trees. The parson-throated tui making a meal of red fruit, the colorful, stumpy takahe on the forest floor, tiny fantails darting overhead. 
“You can’t,” Emma assured him. “It’s all enamels. Everything in this house is pretty indestructible.”
“Did you find the ruru yet?” Zack asked him, leaning forward.
“Don’t tell me,” Nic said. “Let me look.” Zack watched him eagerly as he searched and finally pointed triumphantly to a notch in a tree where the owl blended into the bark. “There.”
“You did this too, eh,” he asked Emma. “Nice.”
“I did everything. That’s my decorating theme. Things I made.”
“I like it,” he assured her. The warm colors of the lounge seemed to cocoon them. Two walls were a rich caramel, the others a warm yellow. She didn’t even paint every wall in a room the same color, he realized. Well, at least in the kitchen it was all the same. Purple. He wondered what color her bedroom was. How it looked. And found himself wishing, against every better impulse, that he could see it.

Scheduling: Jesse's Soul by Amy Gregory



Contemporary Romance
 ( Book 2 in Racing to Love Series)
Date Published: 1/03/2013

Jesse Frost lived the life most men would have killed for. Fast bikes, fame, money and
looks—from the outside looking in he had all, but the combination nearly broke him. He hadn’t thought much about any of those things throughout his career, he was just an easy-going guy from a speck of a town in Texas that had always worked hard for everything he had gotten in life. He’d been the shy guy in school, so when the prom queen found him years later, he thought he had finally made it, winning her affection was the crown jewel. Her mirage however, left him empty and certain there was no one that wanted him just for the man inside.

Emery Kincaid has a last name that is revered in their world. A woman in a man’s world and
succeeding, Irish through and through, she has the temper and sass to boot and a reputation that precedes her. She has remained strong because she’s had no other choice. The pain she masks runs deep and hiding it is the only way she can survive.

Thrown together because of circumstance and forced to be in each other’s space day in and
day out, sparks start to fly—from chemistry and the brakes she tries desperately to throw on. Without a doubt in his mind, Jesse thinks he’s found her, but the girl that stole his heart has a stubborn streak a country mile wide.

In reality, what Jesse doesn’t know could break his heart. Hiding her true feelings for him is the
only way for Emery to protect him and in turn—herself because her secret, her pain is just too big. She barely made it out the first time, if she let Jesse in, only to have him walk away…well, that’s a risk her heart can’t take.

Claren Maidstone has been forced to flee her childhood home after the death of her parents and a vicious assault from a sadistic young man who intends to marry her. Claren changes her identity and finds employment as an assistant to the handsome Fredrick Lowood, a generous yet mysterious benefactor. However, she soon finds out his generosity comes at a price. Fredrick wishes for Claren to befriend his disfigured son who resides in seclusion at their estate, Westwind.

Fredrick Lowood knows what the history books do not teach, that the Grand Council built this new world of peace and beauty on hidden blood and greed. He has plotted for years to bring down the family that enslaved his own people. Suddenly, he has the last living heir in his grasp.

Etrigan Lowood rejects the world that forces him to hide. He is powerful, plagued with a terrible dark beauty: WINGS. It is these wings that carry him out only at night to watch the unwanted intruder in his home. A creature of refined instinct yet little social grace, he is strangely captivated by Claren but knows nothing of how her family’s dark past is intertwined with his own. Through their blossoming friendship, Etrigan realizes he still retains his human heart and yearns for Claren’s love.

Kurten Wandsworth is the only son of the Mayor of St.Marhen. Kurten lives his life fueled by cruelty and lust. Whatever he wants he takes and he wants Claren to be his wife even it if kills her. Scarred by Claren he hunts her down mercilessly until he can set a trap which she will never be able to escape from.

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET


#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Yes, absolutely. I love to write. It’s a huge thrill when someone else actually likes something I wrote. For some reason, it always surprises me. Writing is the best job in the world.


#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

 Editing is always the hardest part. It’s long and tedious work. Good thing I love my own books or I’d never get through it! By the time they are published I’ve read my own books at least a hundred times. Literally.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

As far as encouragement and confidence, yes. An acquaintance wanted to read my books. I nervously sent them to her. She read all six of my novels in about a month and loved them! She couldn’t get enough. Finally someone besides a family member loved my books and this gave me so much confidence to move forward. Of course, we are great friends now!


#4 – What is next for your writing?

Next I’m going to write a military romance and a futuristic romance. I write romance in all of its many sub-genres. I released two novels to begin with because I didn’t want to be labeled as a paranormal author. (Lancaster House is a paranormal romance and Sierra is romantic suspense) That way, readers received a taste of what to expect from me as an author.
Here is my release schedule for all six of my completed novels:

Lancaster House       June 2012

Sierra                     June 2012

I Have People          Sept. 2012

The Middle Aisle       Dec. 2012

Joshua’s Folly          March 2013

For Nick                 June 2013 



#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

I’ve always been a reader. Honestly, I feel that the simple act of reading taught me how to be a writer. Currently, I’m reading Pulled by A.L. Jackson.


This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3?
IPd.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?
Vanilla. Does that make me sound boring? Is this a trick question?

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries?
Mashed Potatoes. My daughter says she’s turned into me—can’t drive past a KFC without stopping for mashed potatoes and gravy.

#4 – Comedy or Drama?
Drama—love a movie/book that makes me cry.

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks?
Too hard—it’s a Sophie’s Choice. These are my two favorite authors.

#6 – Fantasy or Reality?
Fantasy. Always.

#7 – Call or Text?
Text. Hate talking on the phone. Love answering machines.

#8 – Public School or Home School?
Public. Voted Most Shyest on Senior Mosts! Ugh. Anyone who knows me, knows that’s not true.

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate
No contest. Hot Chocolate.

#10 – eBook or Paperback?
Paperback. Although my hubby just bought me a Kindle Fire—ebooks here I come!

Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - The Burning of Isobel Key by Jen McConnel

Contemporary New Adult
Date to be Published: October 1, 2012

When Lou travels to Scotland, she’s a mess.  She’s twenty-six, unemployed, and unsure of herself.  It doesn’t help that she’s traveling with Tammy, her best friend, who is everything Lou is not.
At first, the trip pushes Lou towards the brink of depression, but then she meets Brian, a handsome local tour guide.  When Brian tells the tourists about the countless witches burned in Scotland, Lou starts to listen.  And when she discovers information about Isobel Key, one of the victims of the seventeenth century, Lou finds renewed purpose.
Lou has begun exploring the Neo Pagan faith, a dramatic shift from her wealthy Catholic upbringing.  Despite her fears of being too “hocus pocusy”, Lou turns to her new faith as she struggles to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of Isobel Key.  But faith or not, Lou must face her demons if she has any hope of righting the wrongs of the past.

Reading Addiction Blog Tours MEET and GREET


#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Absolutely!  To me, a career is the work of your heart.  It’s not about money: it’s about being happy.  Without the “heart work”, it’s just a job, and I don’t want writing to ever be just a job.


#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

Revisions.  I’ve learned to enjoy this step more, especially now that I have a system that works well for me, but I still love the freedom of the first draft.


#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

Many, actually!!  I’ve got great Betas and CPs, not to mention good editors and brainstormers.  I’m thankful to be a part of such a rich literary community.


#4 – What is next for your writing?


I’m juggling a few projects: a book that will be out next spring, a few first drafts, and some ideas that want to be born.  Right now, I just want to finish NaNoWriMo!

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

Absolutely.  I’m between books right now, but I’ve got over 90 loaded on my Kindle and waiting for me (and that doesn’t even take into account the STACK on the coffee table).  Next up?  HAPPIER AT HOME by Gretchin Rubin.  Can’t wait!


This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3?  Love my iPd Shuffle.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla? ALWAYS chocolate.

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries? Mashed potatoes.

#4 – Comedy or Drama? Can’t it be both?

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks? I’m actually not a big romance fan, but I guess Sparks since he sets his tales in NC.

#6 – Fantasy or Reality? Fantastic reality.

#7 – Call or Text? Text

#8 – Public School or Home School? Public: teachers ROCK!

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate Depends on the day, but usually coffee

#10 – eBook or Paperback? I love all my books equally. J
