Free book alert + giveaway: Mine for Tonight by J.S. Scott

Down on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she’s never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems, or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity?

Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants…until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he’s never experienced and definitely doesn’t like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul.

Mine For Tonight is book one of The Billionaire’s Obsession trilogy. Books in this trilogy do not stand alone and need to be read in order.

Fantasy Book Spotlight: Vegas then Rome

In 2045, twenty-one-year-old atheist Nate is transported back 2,000 years in time to ancient Rome. Sold into slavery, he finds famous figures and events are occurring outside their timelines, his mobile phone maintains a connection to a future where time is running fifty times faster than the past, and in the sky are small statured people flying on shields of crystal, the Leluuwahn.

Nate is determined to catch a girl who is far above his new social station, and he will need social connections, wealth and freedom to win her.

Leluuwahn elders, who transported the atheist through time, are determined that he will perform the will of God.

If Nate fails in his personal aims, he could remain a slave for life. If he fails to embrace God’s will, he could be damned to hell for eternity.

Buy Links

Vegas the Rome is the first book in a four part series. Below is a brief blurb for the second book, The Hand of Lucifer, to be released in Jan/Feb 2015.

If you could save Christ from the cross, would you?

Nate travels to Judea where he meets Jesus and is given his first Holy task. But will the atheist accept it? He looks on Jesus as a man and a friend, a friend he does not want to lose.

Time Lines

Because the book operates across two timelines that are moving at different speeds, each chapter heading has the date for both ancient Rome and the future.

Speech Patterns

Characters from the future have a faster speech pattern; they will say for example wouldn’t, or couldn’t. Characters from the past have a more precise, slower speech pattern; they will say would not, or could not.

The Leluuwahn often finish their sentences with ‘yes’, and less often with ‘no’.

Nate’s – the main character – speech will change over time, not in the first book as the timeframe is too short, but over the course of the four planned books in the series. His simple, working class vocabulary will expand under the influence of the eloquent and articulate people that surround him. His intelligence shines through over time, although the rough edges of his upbringing are never completely polished away.

About the Author

I was in high school when The Hobbit gave me my first taste of fantasy novels. Years later, when on business in Sydney, I wandered into a book store and happened across a copy of The Lord of the Rings. The world of hobbits in LOTR rang a familiar bell. I purchased the book and have since read it so many times that the spine is falling apart, but none of the pages are dog eared.

Other epic fantasy series to capture my attention have been Dune, The Magician, The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant and the Wheel of Time. I have also enjoyed reading the novels of Jackie Collins; the bitches and bastards, humour and relationships in her books have entertained millions.

And so I asked myself – what if I could massage the bitches and bastards and humour into a fantasy storyline? I would read that. The thought gave birth to the Sex, Blood and Glory series. I have enjoyed writing and reading it. The first book is complete, the second almost, and the third and forth have storylines drafted. I hope you enjoy them too.

I live about an hour north of Sydney, Australia. I use Elijah Wingnut as my pen name because the idea of a fictitious world written by a fictitious author appeals to me.

New Release: Love Least Expected brings Valentine’s love and magic

Love Least Expected

Nine stories, one happy ending. 

A Valentine’s Anthology of romance, love and magic

 

Under the Mango Tree
Meredith Bond
Lakshmi is a good 18th century Indian girl who should not be avoiding her chores and enjoying a mango while hidden amongst the high branches of the mango tree in her mother’s garden. She truly should not be seen by a man who is not a member of her family—an Englishman, no less. And she absolutely should not even contemplate speaking with this man. But Lakshmi has never been one to follow the rules. This time, though, it could ruin—or make—the rest of her life.

Finding genuine love is no easy task, even for a wizard, and time is running out not only to complete his Quest, but to give future generations a chance at happiness. When Melissa steps from his dreams and into his arms, he realizes his need for her love runs deeper than just a way to free Merlin.

Torn between loyalty to her family and her intense attraction to Rolf, she struggles to remain an obedient daughter. Though she desires him, will she defy her family and turn her back on her betrothed? Or will time run out and Rolf be doomed to a life of discontent and bitterness like his ancestors before him?

Katie Stephens

She pushes aside the man of her dreams to date alphabetically, in the hopes of saving her circus family.

Sam has had his eye on Susie since she joined the company. He’s puzzled by her actions, but not blind to the way she responds to him.

She would watch any vampire movie she could find.

Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.

Sale Alert: Ruth Cardello’s Legacy Collection

Nicole Corisi will lose her inheritance if she doesn’t find a way around the terms of her father’s will, but she will have to partner up with her estranged brother’s rival to do it. As pretense becomes painfully real, Nicole will have to choose between Stephan and the family he is driven to destroy.

Stephan Andrade has been planning his revenge ever since Dominic Corisi unscrupulously took over his father’s company. With Corisi Enterprises gambling its reputation on the success of a new software network for China, Stephan finally has his chance to take back his legacy. Dominic’s younger sister, Nicole, asks Stephan for his help and provides him with an opportunity to exact his revenge on a personal level.

It all goes smoothly until he falls in love.

 


Book 1: Maid for the Billionaire

Dominic Corisi knew instantly that Abigail Dartley was just the distraction he was looking for, especially since having her took a bit more persuading than he was used to. So when business forces him to fly to China, he decides to take her with him, but on his terms. No promises. No complications. Just sex.

Abby has always been the responsible one. She doesn’t believe in taking risks; especially when it comes to men – until she meets Dominic. He’s both infuriating and intoxicating, a heady combination. Their trip to China revives a long forgotten side of Abby, but also reveals a threat to bring down Dominic’s company. With no time to explain her actions, Abby must either influence the outcome of his latest venture and save his company or accept her role as his mistress and leave his fate to chance. Does she love him enough to risk losing him for good?

Meet Ruth

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York—then came full circle and moved back to Rhode Island. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.

She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love– writing and has never been happier. When she’s not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm, riding her horses, or connecting with her readers online.

Spotlight on Adriana Kraft’s re-release and giveaway #RHACafe

My fellow Red Hot Authors Cafe author has a re-release and a giveaway to celebrate it. If you like your books extra steamy, check out The Best Man.

Bad boy meets bad girl. Is there anything more?

Passionate, hardworking and every inch a businesswoman, Chicago realtor Kitty Paige likes her sex raw and edgy, and sees no reason to limit herself to just one man. Never married and not quite forty, the striking blonde has successfully raised her daughter, Susan, and is already pushing her new-found freedom to the limits.

Wealthy commodities middle-man and race horse owner Jared Jacobs is father of the best man at Susan’s wedding. He is smitten by the vision in yellow who exudes sex as she escorts her daughter down the aisle. Also single, the handsome mustached California ranch owner with mischievous eyes views his sex life as a series of splendid love affairs, and sets out to make Kitty next on the list.

Together and apart, their chemistry is explosive, and their sparkling repartee and steamy sex catch both partners by surprise. Jared is first to recognize he’s fallen in love. When Kitty panics, can Jared finesse his every move and reel her in?

Amazon | AllRomance |B&N | Smashwords

Exclusive Excerpt:

Jared eyed Kitty with a trace of caution once he’d removed his clothes as she’d directed. She stood in the middle of the bedroom waiting for him and had made no move to strip out of her yellow dress.

His cock extended full and ready, but she probably wasn’t particularly interested in his cock at the moment. He’d infuriated her on the porch. She hadn’t been able to explain why, but he knew. She’d felt his love for her coming through his touch. So be it. He’d be more careful in the short run, but perhaps it was good she’d made that discovery.

She hadn’t been completely scared off. Instead, she’d turned their emotions back into a game she could dictate.

“Kneel in the cushion chair,” she ordered, “facing away from me.”

He nodded, draped his arms over the back of the chair and peeked behind him. She was smiling. “Raise your ass more. That’s right.”

“Put your wrists together,” she said, stepping around the chair. Only then did he see that she carried a leather strap, which she quickly secured around his wrists.

“That should hold you,” she muttered before kissing his head. “I wouldn’t want you trying to turn the tables on me midcourse. Are you comfortable enough?”

“Yeah, get on with it.”

“Oh, I give the orders. Don’t go anywhere—I’ll be right back.”

Maybe she was going to take off the dress at last. He followed her move in the mirrors that decorated her bedroom. She was clearly a woman who loved watching herself.

She rummaged through a dresser drawer before turning back to him. His eyes widened and his heart fluttered at the sight of the toys she laid out on the bed. They included a whip that appeared to be made of felt—maybe that was wishful thinking—several vibrators and dildos and a strap-on harness with a dildo in place. And there were two bottles of lube. Punishment for his transgression wasn’t going to be quick.

“Getting the picture?” she asked, picking up the whip. “You’ve been very naughty.”

We especially write for couples (married or otherwise, straight or LGBTQ).
