#BookTour “A Southern Gentleman Vol 2” by Tracy Reed

ASG cover

A SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN VOL 2

BY TRACY REED

“I never meant to fall in love. I thought Avery would be a good distraction…a way to mend my broken heart. But the moment she sat next to me, I knew she was the one. Now all I have to do is keep my celibacy vow until our wedding night. Avery said she understands my vow, but that hasn’t stopped her from trying to seduce me. God help me make it to the wedding.”

Billionaire Businessman Jeremiah Logan went to New York to buy a company and nurse a broken heart. Instead of getting a company, he gained an ally, a business partner and the heart of the most eligible socialite in Manhattan.

When it came to love, Avery Marshall assumed the best she could hope for was a marriage of convenience with a man who only wanted her money and social connections. But one night in a New York bar, with a charming southern gentleman gave her hope for a happy ending.

Before they can get the relationship they desire, they will need to deal with the ghosts of their pasts.

seduce me
EXCERPT
Jeremiah walked into the kitchen and almost fell backwards. The light honey colored woman with legs a mile long and shoulder length auburn hair, was the one responsible for his escape to New York. The only woman to ever break his heart.
Perched on a stool next to the marble kitchen island drinking champagne like she belonged here. For a brief moment, he went back to a time when she was his world. But now, the sight of her sickened him.
“Jessica…how did you get in here?”
“Sweetheart, you forgot I know my way around this house just as well as my parents’ thanks to our many secret sleepovers.” She sipped her champagne.
“You never slept over.”
“I may not have stayed for breakfast, but…”
“Why are you here?” He stood in the doorway with his hands in his trouser pockets.
She held up a bottle of Cristal and filled the empty glass and pushed it towards him. “I understand congratulations are in order.” She smirked.
“I don’t think that’s good for the baby.”
“Your concern for my son is sweet, but I’m not breastfeeding. Like his father, he’s not a breast man.” She sipped her champagne. “Unlike you.” She placed her glass on the counter and recrossed her long legs.
He tried to look away, but he was scared to take his eyes off of her, fearing what she might do to him. If she was crazy enough to break in, there was no telling what else she was capable of.
“My phone has been blowing up all month with calls about you and this outsider. Honestly Jay, if you wanted to get my attention, you didn’t have to go to such extremes.”
“I’m not trying to get your attention. I was hoping not to see you at all.”
“If that was the case Sweetheart, why didn’t you just get married in New York?”
“I wanted to get married at my home.”
“Since when is the ranch your home?”
He started walking away.
“I get it. You were hurt I cheated on you. I’m sorry. Can we just start over?”
He turned around. “You’re nuts.”
She stood up and walked towards him. “I made a mistake.”
“You told my mother I got you pregnant and abandoned you.”
“You left me no choice.” She stopped in front of him.
“Wow,” he smiled. “You’re even more delusional now than when I last saw you.”
“In my defense, lying to your mother was my mother’s idea. I was all set to handle things, but she insisted we do things her way.” She walked back over to the counter and refilled her glass.
Jeremiah looked at her and a terrible thought entered his head. He tried to push it aside, but he couldn’t. He needed to know the answer. “Did you ever handle a situation when we were together?”
She looked out the corner of her eye. “With you, no.”
“What do you mean, with me, no?” He walked over to the other side of the island facing her.
“Do you really want me to answer that?” She sipped more champagne.
He gritted his teeth, lightly tapping the counter with his fist. He promised himself after the other night he was going to keep calm. Think first and react second. “Yes.”
She toyed with her hair before answering. “Yes, I had a couple of situations while we were together, that weren’t yours.”
Jeremiah wiped his mouth with his hands. “You b@#&%…”
“You were no saint.”
“I never cheated on you.”
“No, you just stopped sleeping with me. And that excuse, ‘I made a vow to God.’” She held her hands up doing air quotes. “Please, you could have come up with something a little more original if you wanted to break up. Like anyone was going to believe the town man whore was giving up sex.” She laughed.
He knew what she was doing. She was trying to get him to lose his temper. If this was a few months ago, or even a few hours ago, he would have probably fallen for it.
“You need to leave.”
“Seems I’ve hit a nerve.” She walked around the island and stopped next to him. The heat from her body, made his blood boil. “You expect me to believe you and, what’s her name…Ashley…Britney…Muffy…Avery. As if I could forget that name. I’ve only had everyone of my friends say it every day since word of your engagement hit the gossip waves. Honestly, you’d think she was royalty or something.” She tapped the counter with her long red nails. “So has Avery been privy to the Logan Magic Tongue. I know you said you were saving yourself for marriage. Every time I think about you being celibate, makes me laugh.”
He refused to look at her.
She walked back around the island to the other side and looked at him trying to read him. A skill she was once good at, but not now.
“Remember that night in the hayloft? It was a toss up between who was louder, us or the horses.” She dragged her finger down her neck to her cleavage. He tried to look away, but couldn’t. “Uhm…I close my eyes and I can still feel your….
“What do you want Jessica?”
“I want you to answer my question. Has little Miss New York had her garden raked by that thick juicy tongue of yours?”

#AudioBookBlogTour “Jesse’s Girl” by Tara September

Audiobook Tour: Jesse’s Girl by Tara September

Author: Tara September

Narrator: Verla Bond

Length: 3 hours and 37 minutes

Publisher: Plus it Up

Released: Sep. 6, 2019

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Successful Texas lawyer, Reade Walker, curses that damn song every time it plays, all too aware of the irony of its lyrics. After all, he has been secretly and painfully enamored with Jesse’s girl, Gwen, for nearly a decade. It was love at first sight for him, but sadly she’s not his girl. She belongs to the one man who betrayed him and knows Reade’s hidden family secret. Yet, Reade can’t seem to love anyone except the one woman he can’t have. Or can he make her mine?

When Gwen Clark’s senator husband runs off with his intern and all their money, the ensuing scandal turns her life upside down. Deserted, penniless, and desperate to provide for her six-year-old daughter, Gwen has no one to turn to but Reade Walker. The one man her heart desperately wants, but her pride dreads having to ask for help. Despite welcoming them into his home, it seems like Reade can barely stand being in the same room with her anymore, let alone under the same roof – in the same bedroom. But Gwen is determined to get her life back on track. It is past time to rediscover her own dreams…if only she can keep her aching heart from breaking all over again.

Dream Cast

Tara September’s Casting Picks for Jesse’s Girl

When I read books, I’m often casting actors and actresses to play the different characters. However, when asked this question about my own book, it wasn’t as easy. Likely because I truly see Gwen and Reade as real people with their own features and characteristics. But…

  • Jennifer Aniston or Emma Watson as Gwen Gallo (an attractive, girl next door type that could be both a senator’s wife and a mom in yoga pants)
  • Henry Cavill or Richard Madden as Reade Walker (a loyal handsome man that you can trust, a strong and steady Clark Kent)
  • Ryan Gosling as Jesse Clark (Charming all-American southern boy look, but with a hidden darkness who can pull off jeans and a cowboy hat or black-tie attire.)
  • A young Jennifer Garner as family lawyer Danielle Dixon, former tom-boy turned bombshell.
  • Chris Pratt as Hunter, the former high school football star who fled town due to Jesse’s manipulations and is now returning home for the first time

#ReleaseBlitz “The Inheritance (A Port Henry Novel, Book 1)” by Amy Briggs

 

Title: The Inheritance (A Port Henry Novel, Book 1)
Author: Amy Briggs
Genre: Romantic Comedy/ Cozy Mystery

Release Date: October 15, 2019
Cover Designer: Kristen Hope Mazzola
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Riley Maxwell spends her days working from her New York City apartment, designing websites and copywriting for clients around the world. Most of her exposure to people outside of her home base is her visits to the local Chinese takeout place down the street. Satisfied with her life of solitude, Riley’s summer gets turned upside-down when a wealthy client passes away, leaving her a beach house in Port Henry, New York, one of the wealthiest shore towns on the East Coast.

When the Great Dane, Scrappy, who—surprise!—she also inherited, gets sick, she takes him to the nearest veterinarian, where she meets Donovan Hunter. A ridiculously good-looking playboy, Donovan immediately gets under Riley’s skin, and she can’t wait to be rid of the house, the dog, and Port Henry. Dr. Hunter, on the other hand, can’t get enough of Riley’s sass and how different she is from the usual summer crowd.

As the summer passes and Dr. Hunter runs out of made-up reasons to get Riley and Scrappy back into the office, he cooks up a new strategy to catch her attention, setting a plan in motion to get the girl, and the dog.

#ReleaseBlitz “Taken by the Outlaw” by Tory Richards

Taken by the Outlaw coverMC Suspense Romance
Date Published: 10/15/19
 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
She was on the run.
He might be her salvation.
Would you give yourself to a stranger? Gwendolyn Myers never thought about it until she runs into Marcus ‘Bowie’ Ford at the Pink Pussy. A run-down hotel at the edge of town. She’s on the run, but one taste of the sexy biker convinces Gwen that her running days might be over!
~~~
Excerpt
I watched his hand slowly descend but before it reached my cheek another hand shot out, out of nowhere, clamped around the drunk’s thick wrist, and stopped his arm in mid air. Heat radiated off a presence behind me and I slowly turned, catching my breath. My eyes locked onto the narrowed, fear-provoking gaze of my savior, the hunky biker. His warm, whiskey laced breath bathed my forehead, and my gaze fell to his mouth, which was way too close. For a crazy second I wondered what kissing those sensuous lips would taste like.
Realizing that I was staring I glanced up at him.
“Run little girl, things are about to get fucking ugly.”
I shook my head. “I don’t want to cause any trouble.”
“Then you should have heeded to my warning.” His tone said he was annoyed that I hadn’t. “Now get the fuck out of here.”
I opened my mouth to speak but his expression darkened even more. I shivered from the intensity, realizing that his anger was directed at me as much as the drunk. I didn’t know this man, and it occurred to me that I didn’t want to. He might be hot as hell, but danger dripped from every pore.
He looked determined, and dangerous.
I don’t know why I listened to him, but suddenly my arm was released, and I was heading toward the door. On my way there I dodged other bikers who were quickly heading toward the bar. I heard a loud commotion start but didn’t turn around. Once I hit the door and was outside, I took a deep breath, not realizing until then that I’d been holding my breath.
Fuck! My heart was racing a mile a minute. That was…intense, and had happened so fast. I couldn’t recall ever striking anyone before. My reaction to the biker’s command pissed me off because Greg had always told me what to do. I didn’t need some stranger taking his place, even if it was my fault for jumping when he said jump. If I was going to make it on my own then I needed to exert myself.
I checked for traffic before crossing the road to the hotel. I made it all the way to my door before remembering that I’d forgotten my damn sandwich. Crap! Well, I wasn’t going back. The cheese and crackers I’d picked up at a convenience store earlier would have to do until morning. I unlocked my door, and headed straight to the bathroom, thinking about a nice long soak in the tub.

#Review “Geraldine” by John Mead

~~~

cover

~~~

4/5 Stars!

Hate crimes or serial killer? Is there a difference?

I went back and forth in the beginning as much as Matthew Merry and Julie Lukula.

But then the cracks start forming.

A body washes up on-shore, acid attacks, shot gun blasts… that’s a lot of hate.

We are the sum of our experiences—or lack of, and when betrayal and ridicule come into play, the curtain is lifted on the ugly grittiness of a world most see simply as entertainment, and it’s those experiences that will turn someone into a killer.

Geraldine is a solid read with good characters and a strong plot, but I enjoyed getting to know the team as the story played out. These are not perfect Bond-type investigators. Life is chaotic and intrusive but you still have to do your job.

As if gender identity and sexual orientation weren’t enough, another timely and relevant issue runs as a sub-plot in Geraldine and is handled well and realistically. No tidy endings in a pretty bow. Life is messy. Kudos to the author.

Crime fiction readers will enjoy this quick read and I recommend it.

Enjoy!

~~~

Hatred is such a nasty thing – we all deplore it in others but do not necessarily recognise it in ourselves. At what point does resentment, jealousy, betrayal or humiliation turn into anger and then grow to an all-consuming hatred? Hatred can be slow, taking years to fester, or can explode in seconds – it can linger for a lifetime or wither in seconds of its conception.

Inspector Matthew Merry and Sergeant Julie Lukula have to deal with the consequences of violence and murder on a daily basis and in the case of Gerry Driver they both see that hatred is the prime motive. But is it, as Julie thinks, one of a series of hate crimes that has led to this killing? Or, is Matthew right in saying, ‘Driver’s death is undoubtedly a hate filled crime, but I’m just not convinced that there are sufficient links to suggest it is part of a pattern of hate crimes.’

Only time and their investigation, which takes as many twists and turns as the Thames does along it course through London and past Wapping Old Stairs, will tell.

Extracts

‘She was obviously attractive when alive,’ Matthew noted out loud. Her shoulder length, light brown hair was still wet and clung to the woman’s face, exaggerating the finely drawn cheeks and chin. Her thin lips were pulled back slightly, showing a glint of evenly spaced teeth in the residual of a smile. Not a beautiful face, he thought, but a pleasant one denoting a strong character. The body was slim, narrow hips, with long legs. Her breasts where fulsome and still filled her bodice making him wonder if they had been cosmetically enlarged, as the silicon would preserve their shape even while she was supine. Only her feet were overly large for her size and, without shoes, looked out of place. Her whole, otherwise elegant, appearance in a smart blue, knee length dress was marred by bruising around her neck, the signs of strangulation in her face and the greyish blue colouring of her glistening, wet skin.

***

The inspector recalled studying Geraldine’s face at close quarters and, even after she’d been dead a few hours, there had been no sign of Gerry to give the game away. Such was the persuasiveness of Gerry’s impersonation that he had tricked death into accepting him as Geraldine.

 

John MeadAuthor Bio

John was born in the mid-fifties in East London, on part of the largest council estate ever built, and was the first pupil from his local secondary modern school to attend university. He has now taken early retirement to write, having spent the first part of his life working in education and the public sector. He was the director of a college, a senior school inspector for a local authority, and was head of a unit for young people with physical and mental health needs.

He has travelled extensively, from America to Tibet, and he enjoys visiting the theatre, reading and going to the pub. It is, perhaps, no surprise that he is an avid ‘people watcher’ and loves to find out about people, their lives, culture and history. When he is not travelling, going to the theatre or the pub; he writes.

Many of the occurrences recounted and the characters found in his novels are based on real incidents and people he has come across. Although he has allowed himself a wide degree of poetic licence in writing about the main characters, their motivations and the killings that are depicted.

John is currently working on a series of novels set in modern day London. These police procedurals examine the darker side of modern life in the East End of the city.
