Book Cover Photo



Synopsis

When Cass Howard was young, she never dreamed she would have the perfect job, living in New York, with an amazing man by her side.

That’s a good thing…because none of that ever happened.

Drew Alexander was the one person who knew Cass better than almost anyone, and the friendship that developed in high school carried them to college. Despite the distance, their bond grew stronger, revealing to each of them what they meant to each other. A series of fleeting moments and a string of failed relationships helped them realize that what they really wanted, what they needed, was each other.

But that was five years ago, and sometimes things just don’t work out.

Now twenty-five, Cass finds herself living in Houston, working at a small publishing house as an editor. By most accounts, she appears happy, however she has managed to avoid a true relationship, opting to channel all of her energy on work, despite protests from her best friend.

The only thing that can drag her away is the annual girls’ weekend, which comes at the best possible time, because Cass has just learned life-altering news. With the most recent blow to her life looming overhead, will the getaway with her closest friends change her outlook on life? Or will her inability to put the past behind her stifle any chance she has of moving on? Will she ever be able to open up and let those who love her be there for her?

Teasers/Excerpts:

  • “He caught me off guard when he lifted my chin so that my eyes met his, and with no regard for the people who could have seen us, he kissed me. My thoughts went from what the hell to holy hell in a flash. I closed my eyes and allowed myself to feel something that I hadn't wanted to acknowledge up until that very moment. My hand left his neck and trailed down his arm as I reached for his hand. I kissed him back with feeling; not knowing this is why I was mad. When separated, he looked into my eyes, silently begging me to hear him, ‘I love you.’”
  • My stomach was in knots, hoping that I wasn't imagining this moment until he started to move his lips to mine. I could feel his breath inches from my lips and I knew it was real. His lips briefly brushed mine before he deepened the kiss. I felt that kiss over my entire body and I started to move my hands around his neck, but just as it started to become something more, our moment was interrupted.” 



·         “Easy there tiger,” a male voice says near me. I’m not sure that it’s directed at me, so I ignore the comment and continue doing whatever it was I was going to do. 
"“What? Still too good to mingle with the common folk, huh?” I turn to see who is on the receiving end of the asshole’s insults, but the moment I see his face, I know it was directed at me. In front of me stands an older, unfortunately, more attractive Rhen, giving the one grin that just about any girl would have killed to see.
Once upon a time, seeing Rhen and his messy blonde hair and piercing green eyes would have me at a loss for words. His tall and slender physique is as far cry from the scrawnier, but still handsome guy I dated in high school. His smile is still as sexy as ever, but unfortunately for him, his charms don’t work on me anymore.
“Hey Rhen, how’s it going?” I ask; not at all interested in the answer or pretending I really care.
He steps back and opens his arms, “No hug?”
I surrender my bitchitude stance and step into his arms and return the hug before eyeing him questioningly. “So you decided to grace us with your presence this year, huh?”
“Ah, so you have missed seeing me?” His smile grows wider, happy with the knowledge he’s been the topic of discussion.
“Eh, not so much,” I say waving my hand, “we just figured you had gotten fat and bald and didn’t want to show your face around here.”
“And what’d you think now?” He opens his arms, pretending to model so I can get a better look at him. He was always such a showoff.
I squint my eyes evaluating the Rhen that now stands before me, “Not bald. Not fat,” I remark coolly. “Broke?”
“Nope.”
“Married?”
“Nope.”
“Gay?” I ask hopefully and wide-eyed.
“’Fraid not, cutie,” he says with a single shake of his head.
“You mean you just missed all of us?” I say feigning embarrassment.

“No, not everyone,” he says raising an eye at me. “I heard you might be here, thought it could be fun to see you again.”

T.K. Rapp is a Texas girl born and raised! She attended Texas A&M where she graduated in 2000 with a degree in Journalism. It was there that she met her husband, who already had a contract with the US Navy. They married soon after she graduated and immediately moved to San Diego, California. Being a military family, they continued to move several more times, which was a great adventure. Along the way, they started their family and are blessed with two awesome kids who are her world!

Her first novel, Being There, was self-published on July 3, 2013. When she started writing, she didn't really have any intention of publishing, but the more she got into it, the more she felt that it was a step she needed to take. It was both exciting and terrifying because she was going for it, but she would also be baring my soul and allowing people to tear her up. So far, the response has been encouraging and it pushes her to do more.

If you ask how her friends would describe her, words they tend to use include quirky, raunchy sense of humor, loves coloring her hair, stubborn, cheap drunk, loyal, fun, awesome mom and simple. If you ask her to describe her friends? One word: Blind!

When she isn’t writing, or thinking up something to write, she can be found chatting on Facebook, reading, adding things to her bucket list or hanging with her family.

Synopsis

A story of vengeance, forgiveness and love...

After her husband’s untimely demise, Marietta Gatti is banished from the family’s villa by her spiteful mother-in-law. She returns to her hometown of Venice and her only kin—a father she hasn’t spoken to since her forced marriage. Her hope of making amends is crushed when she learns she is too late, for he recently died under suspicious circumstances. Grief-stricken, Marietta retraces her father’s last night only to discover someone may have wanted him dead—and she may be next. When the prime suspect turns out to be the father of the man she is falling in love with, Marietta risks her future happiness and her life to avenge the death of a man she once hated.

Elizabeth McKenna’s latest novel takes you back to the days of Carnival and Casanova, where lovers meet discreetly, and masks make everyone equal.

Excerpt
Nico shrugged in the French wingback chair they had placed by the fireplace for his portrait. He looked regal in a black silk suit trimmed in gold and a waistcoat of burgundy and gold leaf-patterned brocade. It seemed Raul had excellent taste in men’s fashions.
Marietta rolled her eyes before she settled in a chair behind the easel. “Please keep still while I draw.”
“May I talk?”
“I’d rather you didn’t.” Looking at him was going to be enough distraction. She didn’t need to listen to him also.
He ignored her request. “I have to ask—why Palladino?”
Marietta blew out an exasperated breath. “I can’t sketch you properly if you talk.”
“You could have chosen any man at the Consul’s villa. Casanova himself expressed interest in you, yet you leave with that pig.”
“It’s not what you think.” She compared her drawing to Nico and frowned. His shoulders were no longer in the same position.
“You didn’t have to suffer the man’s dismal lovemaking. What were you thinking?”
“We did not make love,” she replied through clenched teeth.
He continued as if not hearing her. “You’re the first woman in years that he didn’t have to pay, though he would never admit to his need for courtesans. I just don’t understand how you could find him appealing.”
“We did not make love.” She practically shouted it this time. “I’m not attracted to Palladino or any other man for that matter.”
This silenced him, gratefully, but only for a few moments. “Well, in that case, I know of a few courtesans that can accommodate you. I am told they are quite beautiful and skilled.”
Marietta threw down her charcoal and marched over to him. She grabbed his shoulders and repositioned him. “That is not what I meant and you know it.”
He smiled up at her innocently. “I didn’t mean to offend you, but you have refused my charms, so what should I think?”
She glared at him for her own benefit, knowing it would have no effect on the man. “You need to stop talking and moving.”
When he didn’t respond, she said, “That’s better.”
He lasted almost fifteen minutes. “So, what kind of man are you attracted to? Perhaps, I could suggest a few potential lovers.”
“How about one who has fewer conquests than fingers and toes? Or one that values honesty and fidelity over all else? Do you know any like that?”
From the thoughtful look on his face, he took this as an earnest question. “I’m afraid, Kitty, a man like that will be hard to find in Venice, especially this time of year.”
“Well, then, I guess I’ll have to go without.”
“How depressing. What will you do for amusement if you don’t take a lover?”
Marietta rubbed at her temples and decided she deserved more than the coins she’d already been paid. “There’s more to life than pleasuring oneself.”
“Really?”
“Yes, Signore, really.” She placed her stub of charcoal on the easel’s tray and rolled the stiffness from her neck and shoulders. “That is all for today. I have another appointment.” It was a lie, but she felt the need to rest and the bed in the corner was tempting her tired body.

Review: The Redeemers by Suresh Taneja

Publication Year: 2013
Published By: Frog Books
Pages: 229 in paperback
Source: A copy sent by Author

Synopsis

One bizarre vacation marked a turning point in the lives of four teenage friends. It dawned upon them that corruption and malpractices had become rampant and deeply ingrained in our culture. They felt anguished and shocked at the shameful state of affairs. 
They pledged to redeem and change the destiny of the country. They had only two weeks of vacation left to take some big initiatives. The pressure on them was immense. Status quo or failure was not an option for them. Read the inspirational story of a unique movement masterminded by youngsters through innovative ideas and creative thinking. Not a single family could escape from its unrelenting onslaught. It was a rewarding outcome for their persistence and hard work, as they nostalgically recall in 2030.


My Thoughts

[Though the book was provided by author to me, all the views and thoughts mentioned here are mine and are impartial. And I am thankful to Mr. Suresh Taneja for giving me an opportunity to read this book] :)

I had never heard about this book until the author- Suresh Taneja contacted me for a review request. As soon as I read the blurb I did some 'googling' and came to a conclusion that I HAVE to read it. Now you may ask Why?- Why Not??? The topic is of universal concern and this book is addressing the most disturbing and alarming topic- the CORRUPTION which has been like a long term contagious sickness and has been incurable for decades and this book (as blurb says) boasts of suggesting its much illusive cure.

STORY: Gang of Four Friends - G4, as they like to call them- enjoying and planning their two week vacation during the year 2009 - are normal teenagers who love to stay together and play pranks for fun. But on one such evening filled with their pranks, while returning home, a cop tries to frame their uncle to demand ransom. A few more similar incidents make them aware of the ugly realities of their country. Instead of shrugging their shoulders and walking off, as we all normally do, they choose to fight – a fight till finish…. till they free their beloved country from all malpractices. And they embark on a Journey where there is no looking back.
India becomes a Superpower in the year 2030 and generously helps erstwhile superpower USA in all possible ways. It is a vacation time for G4 and they narrate to their kids the fascinating tale of their journey in transforming the country.

My Views: When I took up this book I was excited to read it and thought I wouldn't be sleeping the whole night (that is what I do when I enjoy a book very much) but I was disappointed with the starting. I felt that the first chapter where India was shown as a superpower was too much to believe and there were a few other unrealistic incidents too. Though thoughts of closing the book did cross my mind, thankfully I was persuaded by my friend to continue. The book came to life in the third chapter when the events leading to 'The evening' started taking place and I was completely taken into the book. However, after reading the book, I understood the importance of the initial chapters which were important for introduction, character building and to give insight of present (year 2030) situation in the book. 
I loved how G4 chalked out their plan and their team work was awesome. The steps that they took made me think ‘Why can't I do that?’ It all seemed practical and doable; I honestly felt that if we - The Youth of our Country – really take it in our hands then we can make India Corruption free.
Though there were instances where book drags for a while, its uniqueness is in offering simple and creative ideas. It makes us think and makes us ask questions. I really think that every youngster who is not satisfied with the system or wants to bring a change must read this book. After reading this book I am looking forward to read more books on such topics.

I give this book 3.5 out of 5.

Suresh strongly feels that the youth need to play a leading role in shaping up the future of our country which presently is plagued with alarming proportions of corruption, malpractices and declining moral values. The intent behind this book is to kindle a sense of awareness amongst the youngsters on their possible role, encouraging them to be creative in finding solutions and inspiring them to translate their thoughts into action.

Suresh writes regularly to express himself on a variety of issues. His writings are generally inspired by his life experiences and some keen observations.

Details

Publication Date:14th october 2013
Author:Rachel Harris
Publisher:Bliss-An Entangled Imprint
Pages:211 in ebook
Series:Love and Games #2
Rating:4/5

Synopsis


Angelle Prejean is in a pickle. Her family is expecting her to come home with a fiancé—a fiancé who doesn’t exist. Well, he exists, but he definitely has no idea Angelle told her mama they were engaged. Tattooed, muscled, and hotter than sin, Cane can reduce Angelle to a hot mess with one look—and leave her heart a mess if she falls for him. But when she ends up winning Cane at a charity bachelor auction, she knows just how to solve her fiancé problem.

Cane Robicheaux is no one’s prince. He doesn't do relationships and he doesn’t fall in love. When sweet, sultry-voiced Angelle propositions him, he hopes their little game can finally get her out of his head. He doesn't expect her to break through all his barriers. But even as Angelle burrows deeper into his heart, he knows once their seven days are up, so is their ruse.

Review

Though Seven Day Fiance is a part of a series,it can be read as a stand alone.For those who have read Taste the Heat,you may remember Angelle.She volunteers as a firefighter and is determined to live her life the way she wants.I loved Angelle and was charmed by her persona like Cane from the start.Though she left her home in Bon Terre to start a new life in New Orleans,she ended up in Magnolia Springs and I am so glad she did...!!


Mine, she wanted to scream to the row of female cousins

creeping closer, even as she darted a glance at her daddy,

wondering if he’d spotted the ink. Instead, she swallowed past the

lump of nerves lodged in her throat and placed her hand in his.
“Everyone, I’d like you to meet Cane Robicheaux.”
        Turning back to face her family, Angie added, “My fiancé.”

Coming to Cane,well he ticks all the right boxes and is everything I love in a hero.He is good looking,handsome,loves his sisters and can do anything for them(charity bachelor auction),he writes songs,sings,plays a guitar,has tattoos,rides a bike and I can go on and on.How can you resist such a perfect hero ladies and especially the one who can sing...!!.He did annoy me when he broke Angie's heart but the way he sought redemption and declared his love for his girl blew me away.


If she refused to forgive him, then he’d have to accept it. But

he wouldn’t let her down. He’d agreed to come on this trip and

help her win over her hometown, and as long as his mother’s ring

was on her fi nger, Cane was still her fake fi ancé.
For better or worse, right?

The story is set up in a small Cajun town where everyone knows each other,where traditions  and culture are deeply rooted.It was fun reading about all the Cajun celebrations and traditions.I loved the constant presence of Angelle's family and the love they all shared.The setting of the novel was perhaps my favourite part after the characters.


The story is written in both Cane's and Angelle's perspective and it helps to understand both the characters better.Taste the Heat had set up some pretty high standards but Rachel has managed to out do herself in this one.Jason and Colby from Taste the Heat make an appearance too and its always a delight to read about them.I am hoping the next book is about Sherry finding love and given her bubbly persona I so looking forward to it..!!

Overall Seven Day Fiance by Rachel Harris is a well written,light and fun romance novel which any romantic would love.Recommended for everyone..!!!

Jacob Hills by Ismita Tandon Dhankher

SUMMARY

An unloved woman is a soft target, anyone can hit her, have her.
It’s just another evening at the Tiller’s Club.
Near the bar, Capt. Rana, the Young Officer undergoing training at the War College stands among his course mates, consciously avoiding his pregnant, Muslim wife, Heena. Rumour has it she had forced him to marry her because of the baby.
Saryu, village belle turned modern babe, drink in hand, chats up a YO. Her husband, Maj. Vikram Singh, shoots angry glances at her. She isn’t bothered; the question is, who will she go home with tonight?
Pam and Gary, the flamboyant Sikh couple, chat merrily with the senior officers, charming as ever. Who’d ever guess that they lead the infamous Key Club, an underground swinger couples’ club.
And in one corner stands the Anglo-Indian wife of Maj. George Chandy, Eva, who finds herself at the heart of a murder mystery when a woman’s bleeding body is discovered at the old church under the black cross. The murdered woman’s body is covered with cigarette burns. A six-year-old girl’s wrist is similarly marked. Another little girl shows signs of severe abuse.
Jacob Hills: an army station that houses the War College where young officers receive training. A world of army officers and genteel conversation, of smart men and graceful women. Set in the 1980s – in an India that was at the cusp of tradition and Westernized modernity – this is the story of the ugliness that lies beneath the garb ofJacob Hills’s beauty and sophistication. An ugliness the Chandys find themselves confronted with. Will they uncover the truth behind the woman’s murder? Will their love survive Jacob Hills?



The shadow of the erstwhile British army lingered long after they left the country. Their drinking, smoking, womanizing culture was eagerly embraced by the cream of the crop in the organization. Flirtation is a norm of an elitist, high flying society and it was used to further, both personal and professional agenda.
The seventies and eighties was an era of great suppression, men and women were not allowed to mingle freely. All over the world the hippie movement was on a roll since the sixties but premarital sex in India was seen as an aberration.
Under the garb of British legacy, sycophants and lotharios in uniform thrived and carried on the tradition left behind by the GoriChamdi.
Every organization has its grapevine,Ismita grew up hearing rumors, snatches of conversation, old wives tales. With an active imagination, the blanks were easy to fill and Jacob Hills was born.

Cover Reveal:LAST HIT By Jen Frederick and Jessica Clare



Heya everyone..!!
Ok so its the season for cover reveals on the blog and here is the cover reveal for LAST HIT By Jen Frederick and Jessica Clare...!!!
*drumrolls*




Blurb
Nikolai
I have been a contract killer since I was a boy. For years I savored the fear caused by my name, the trembling at the site of my tattoos. The stars on my knees, the marks on my fingers, the dagger in my neck, all bespoke of danger. If you saw my eyes, it was the last vision you'd have.  I have ever been the hunter, never the prey. With her, I am the mark and I am ready to lie down and let her capture me.  Opening my small scarred heart to her brings out my enemies. I will carry out one last hit but if they hurt her, I will bring the world down around their ears.

Daisy
I've been sheltered from the outside world all my life. Homeschooled and farm-raised, I'm so naïve that my best friend calls me Pollyanna. I like to believe the best in people. Nikolai is part of this new life, and he's terrifying to me. Not because his eyes are cold or my friend warns me away from him, but because he's the only man that has ever seen the real me beneath the awkwardness. With him, my heart is at risk...and also, my life.



Scheduled to be release December 2013


TEASER ONE:



NIKOLAI
 I feel restless and think perhaps I should review the information I have compiled for the mark or perhaps look at the routing pattern left by the caller from Neuchâtel.  I do neither because as I begin to draw back from the scope her motions arrest me. Her small hand with the pink tipped nails are moving over her belly. One finger traces the tiny lace adorning the top band of her panties. My breath is suspended. Time is suspended.
I have never seen this before. She has never touched herself. Never brought a man home with her. I’d have shot him, maybe. No, I would’ve caused some disturbance. Something. I thought her maybe an innocent and fantasized about awakening her. But now her small fingers are delving beneath the cotton. I can see the bumps of her knuckles as the press against the pale pink fabric. She is moving her fingers in circles.
I imagine my own fingers, much larger, darker and more rough, pressing down upon hers. My fingers flex involuntarily at the thought of her pussy beneath my touch. I’d stroke her lightly and in circles as that is what she appears to like. I’d move my fingers lower, beyond her clit to her hot cunt. It would be wet, dripping wet. My fingers would be soaked and I would pause so that I could lick her sweet honey off each digit.
My cock is so hard I fear that it will break against the denim of my jeans. I draw a hand over my chest and pinch my own nipple hard imagining it is her tiny white teeth tugging on it. I’ve broken out in a light sweat.
Her legs tense and her hand motions become more frantic. I can see her chest rise and fall rapidly and her whole body is strained but when her release comes it is truncated. The look on her face is of frustration rather than satisfaction. She wets her plump lips and closes her eyes. She begins again but again she is unfulfilled.
My emotions war against each other. Unhappiness that she cannot find her own fulfillment but fierce possessiveness arising out of an idea I’ve tried to suppress. In my mind, only I can bring her to orgasm and release. I can teach her to touch herself in a way that will be pleasurable and satisfying.
I would not start with her pussy. No, the skin is the largest sex organ. I would stroke my hands over every inch, starting from her forehead. My lips and fingers would smooth away any furrows. My hands would encircle her neck and sweep down over her shoulders to her fine wrists.
I’d rub my body over hers so that she smelled of me. When she walked on campus, other men would stay away recognizing she was marked as my own. Belonging to Nikolai. Maybe I would tattoo it around her neck like a collar.

TEASER TWO


Swinging my scope over to room 524, I flip on my night vision goggles.  I can only see the outline of her body.  It is leaving the apartment and she appears to have a basket with her.  I track her down to the basement laundry.  When I first walked the building, I noted the basement laundry facility. It was dank and musty with only a few lights and disgusting floor. 524 should not have to clean her clothes down there. Someone should clean her clothes for her but I knew she could not afford that.  Her refrigerator held few items and when she did eat, which seemed far too rare for my own peace of mind, she ate noodles and other cheap food stuffs.  Her roommate did not make any more money either. The two of them were poor and so obviously prey it is a miracle that they've survived on their own to make it to adulthood. The one male in their lives is worthless. 
I watch again as her outlined form leans over the washing machine.  She places her clothes inside and then leaves. She returns to her apartment and returns to her bedroom. It is too dark for me to tell what she is doing in there. Is she touching herself again? Is she bringing herself off?  I think she may be reading a book. I watch her and the time that passes is meaningless. Nothing is more interesting to me that watching her, even if it is just the outline of her form. I should be doing so many other things. Researching my potential mark in Seattle.  Determining my next step with Mr. Brown.  Instead I am mesmerized by her.

Jessica Clare


This is a pen name for Jill Myles.
Jill Myles has been an incurable romantic since childhood. She reads all the 'naughty parts' of books first, looks for a dirty joke in just about everything, and thinks to this day that the Little House on the Prairie books should have been steamier.

After devouring hundreds of paperback romances, mythology books, and archaeological tomes, she decided to write a few books of her own - stories with a wild adventure, sharp banter, and lots of super-sexy situations. She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.
