NOWHERE GIRL by Fiona Keane is LIVE!
YA ROMANCE | FOUNDLINGS SERIES #1

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000447_00006]

Sophia…
They thought sending me to this supposed tropical paradise would keep me safe. But there’s no place safe for me now. Not when the memories won’t leave me alone.
I didn’t know what the universe had in store for me, but I definitely didn’t expect Jameson Burke. People think he has more secrets than I do, but he showed me his true self – his smile, his thoughtfulness, his love.
I can’t afford to fall so far, so deep. Not after what happened. I should run, but somehow my heart keeps coming back to him…
Jameson…
I had my own reasons to run. Little did I know the most important piece of my story started and ended with the quiet girl sitting next to me in seventh period.
Sophia Reid’s shy smile brought my soul out of hiding. Through her, I learned what starting over really means.
But if I give in to this love, I’ll put us both in danger.
For a short time, I was whole again, but what they say is right. The old me is dead, and the new one will never know love again.

NG Teaser Quote
SNEAK PEEK:
JAMESON — ❝I hated this. I despised it. There were no words for the grief, the aching in my heart. I was betraying her. I had been ordered to break the trust she gave me, and all so Thomas and Elizabeth could follow the rules.
Two days ago, I had taken Soph to my cove. I kissed her. I held her hand. I shared with her more of me than anyone beyond Thomas and Elizabeth. I forced her to include me into her bubble and now I was popping it because it was the right thing to do. Why couldn’t I just explain it to her? I could trust her—I know I could. Soph was different than anyone else. Why couldn’t I just tell her?❞

4 reasons why I LOVE to write romances!

Guest post by Cristiane Serruya

Hello and thanks for hosting me. I’m so happy to be here with you and your readers today.

Since 2011, I’ve been immersed in the written word—penning romance novels, to be exact. The process of crafting and getting a work through the publishing machine—especially the indie world—can be a lonely and hard path but when my new imaginary friends walk out of my romances, they’re worth all of grueling pain I submit my wrists and fingers to. Here are four reasons why I have been hooked by love stories.

1. The characters

The men! Handsome or scarred, funny or brooding, overbearing or supportive. Dark-haired, blond, paled skin, tanned and everything in between! Now put them together with blondes, brunettes or red-heads; thin or curved or toned; opinionated and bold or delicate and shy! Oh, my! To make it even better, throw in a couple of kids—I love stories with smart kids! Of course, makes it even funnier if we have a few criminals in the story, too. There, I have a bunch of new friends—and enemies—for me to play with for a while.

2. I get to create stories

Imagine those said characters meeting over a business meeting, as in The Complete TRUST Series; or fighting for a cure for a sick child, as in Forevermore, and the sparks flying over a heated argument or a nice gesture.

And then imagine them doing it. Yeah! And some revengeful ex-partner or dark secret, which threatens their relationship. I decide who loves and hates; who lives and dies! I can totally transform a person I know in a good or a horrible character. I can even take my revenge on the ones I don’t like much and create a whole new ending for a situation gone wrong. It’s freeing!

3. The research

Learning is a passion of mine. In order to create believable characters, research is necessary. For example, Tavish Uilleam MacCraig, the lead male character of Love Painted in Red, who appeared on my first release Entwined Fates, TRUST Series #1 and was supposed to be a secondary character, grew so much as a character during TRUST Series that he demanded his story to be told. As it unfolded, and from it I have already Damaged Love, which features Tavish’s best friend, Lord Richard Smith, and after comes the story of Richard’s older brother, Lord Hugh Smith.

All the three of them are veterans of war—I am always in awe of those men and women who sacrifice themselves to make this world safer.

We don’t have a strong military here in Brazil and I wanted them to be believable veteran dealing with PTSD, living with disabilities, having invisible scars, for the readers to feel their pains. So I interviewed many veterans online. It was an enlightening and heartbreaking experience and it helped me make Tavish and Richard come out beautifully—or so I like to think—with their physical and psychological scars and yet full of life strength and vigor.

4. The happily ever after

With all the horrible things happening in the world, unnecessary killings, religious and racial strife, it’s great to be able to escape to a world where my characters have survived bad things and are still able to find a fulfilling and healing relationship with a happy ending—and don’t forget the steamy sex I got to create. But sometimes, I get out of a story emotionally tired; so tired, I need a break.

It was exactly the case of Forevermore, Olivia, Alek, and Ava’s heart-wrenching and heart-warming story that I needed a break before I jump into the skin of Benedict, who is blind, and Natalya, from Evermore. Ah, what did I do during my break? I wrote a light, funny and suspenseful romance. So, pre-order already Royal Love, Last Royals Series #1.

(A Cowboy Christmas Romance)

by Virginia Sexton (Goodreads Author)
 4.56  ·   Rating details ·  16 Ratings  ·  15 Reviews

I’m gonna have to show her how things are done out in the country.

Felicity Hamilton is everything I expect a New Yorker to be: classy, sassy, and a royal pain in the butt. And she doesn’t understand the first thing about life in Montana.

I know her type, city girls looking for a hook-up that’s different and wild, as long as they can go back to their pedicures and fancy cocktails the next day.

I sure don’t mind giving her a good ride and letting her play cowgirl for a night. Everything about her makes me sweat. Her voice, her curves, and especially her tongue.

But is she working for me? Or for the corporation trying to buy my ranch?

This ranch has been in my family for three generations. Some sexy little slip of a girl from downtown coming in here and telling me how to run my business? Not happening, lil lady.

Although I’m big enough to admit that maybe spanking that bare butt of hers wasn’t the right way to deal with this.

Even though I know she liked it.

Truth is, she’s all I can think about. I crave her, but I don’t know if I can trust her.

I’m burning to be with her, but if she thinks I’ll give up the ranch without a fight, she’ll find out just how cold a Montana winter can be.

MY REVIEW

Another hot and steamy read from Virgina Sexton.  This time there are sexy cowboys!  Yee Haw!

In this book Grant is owner of his father’s ranch, now that he has passed away unexpectedly a few months ago.  His dad’s office is a nightmare.  It seems as if he stopped doing the books months ago and Grant can’t tell heads from tales.  He needs help and he needs it fast.  When his friend Seb calls and suggests his sister come Grant is happy.  Not only is Sebastian’s sister extremely good at numbers she is a stranger.  Can’t have the rest of the ranch family knowing Grant can’t figure out the books.

Felicity is a city girl at heart and a successful accountant.  Numbers is her game, but when her brother Seb asks for a favor she realizes she really has no choice and she can’t say no to him.  Seb tells her to look at it as a sort of vacation from the hustle and bustle of New York.

When Felicity arrives in Montana, she starts to realize maybe this is a mistake.  When the ranch hands give her a hard time at every turn she decides the best thing for her to do is finish the job she came to do and haul butt out of there.

When Grant meets Felicity he is immediately drawn to her.  The chemistry between them is so strong he can’t resist touching and pleasing her.  He is getting attached and it could mean danger for him before the week is out.

When Felicity realizes the ranch is in real trouble she gets scared and knows that she must tell Grant.  Will this be the end of her budding new relationship?  Will her heart be broken by Sunday?

Virgina sure does know how to write a great novel.  She makes her characters exciting and intriguing.  You will instantly fall in love with her story.  Her books are always sexy,  hot and steamy reads, with alpha males that have the sexiest bodies known to man.  Her books are usually quick reads filled with lust, heartache and love.  I highly recommend this quickie.  It will make your toes curl!

Virginia SextonVirginia Sexton has been travelling her whole life – Europe, North America, the South Pacific – and prefers to call all of them home. She wrote and illustrated her first story, “The Banana Boat,” at age eight. To this day, it is one of her most cherished possessions.

Virginia has two writing companions, her cats, Pepper and Max, and enjoys sending pictures of them to her friends when she should be writing. Her hobbies include photography, salsa dancing, and cooking — especially if the recipe involves ham or she’s whipping up a batch of homemade marshmallows.

She loves strong, sexy men who smoke cigars, drink cognac, and know how to treat a lady… especially when she’s been naughty. Lighting a candle and burning some jasmine incense helps her get in the mood… for the next book.

Virginia writes the kind of stories she enjoys reading — steamy romances that always end with happily-ever-afters. She loves making an accomplished alpha fall hard for his perfect match, and thinks it’s delicious when he must work to win over her heart, while also making her knees go weak and leaving her breathless in all the right ways.
