~~*~~
He was so close she could smell the clean musk scent of his aftershave and feel the moist heat of his breath. His muscular thigh flexed against her leg as he leaned in to cut a bite of asparagus.
As he lifted it to her lips, his gaze fixed on her mouth. His tongue swept over his bottom lip as if anticipating her taste. Jillie’s body tightened with need and her mouth quivered in anticipation of kissing him.
She took the spear of green off the end of the fork, sliding her tongue over her lips to get every ounce of its flavor.
The asparagus was perfect. Slightly crisp and tart with balsamic vinegar.
Brandt watched her chew and licked his lips. “I love balsamic. Let me try.”
She expected him to cut himself another bite, but instead he leaned close and slid his tongue over her slightly parted lips.
“Mmm. Delicious. I need to try the steak too.”
He cut another sliver of meat and doused it liberally with the rich sauce. As he placed it on her tongue, she drew it in, curling her tongue slowly around it, before chewing.
Brandt lowered his head and took her bottom lip into his mouth, sucking gently. He moaned. “Incredible. The sauce is exquisite. What’s your secret ingredient?”
She closed the distance between them and nibbled on his full lower lip. “There’s a reason they call it a secret ingredient.”
He slid his hand up her bare arm, over her shoulder, and wrapped it lightly around her throat, tipping her chin so he could trail kisses along the place where her blood pulsed with growing excitement. “I bet I can get it out of you.” His voice had deepened and grown husky with lust.
The sound of it abraded her overcharged nerves, making her shiver. “Just as long as you know I’m holding out as long as I can.”
He sucked an earlobe into his mouth and gently bit down. “As you know, I love a challenge.”
She gasped. When her nipples peaked hard against the soft cotton of her thigh-length T-shirt, Jillie figured he had to be able to feel them against his arm. She pressed closer, driving the painfully hard peaks into his muscular flesh. “Are you hungry?”
His lips feathered along her jaw line and lifted, stopping a mere breath away from her lips. “Starving.” Then he lowered them and claimed her mouth in an aggressive, hungry kiss.
Jillie wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him in, draping her legs across his lap and allowing him to pull her onto the tiny chair with him. His arms enveloped her, holding her close enough to feel every hard, sexy line of his long body.
She pulled away after a moment and reached for her wine, needing to give herself a moment to cool down or she was going to lay him out in the thick grass and have her way with him right there.
She took a sip as he skimmed his hands along her bare legs, fighting the urge to spread her knees and let him in. They could so easily be discovered in that very public spot. She sipped her wine and placed it against his lips, tipping it for him to drink.
When she pulled away, a drop of wine trickled down his stubbled chin. She leaned in and swept it away with her tongue.
Brandt groaned. “I think I’ve turned permanently blue in some of my favorite parts.”
She chuckled, sipping her wine again. “Smurf crotch?”
He lifted an eyebrow, not amused.
An idea began to form that she wasn’t about to resist. Jumping up, she grabbed his hand. “Come on. I have just the place.”

 Veronica -- Fun facts

Synopsis:

Separation.

We all get one true love in our lives, and it’s up to us to find it. Fate will act and try to push us together, but ultimately it’s up to us to recognize who that one person is when he’s standing in front of us.

It turns out that I recognized who my one person was when I was separated from my husband.

Anxiety.

On the same day I determined that I was finally going to file for divorce, I confessed my secret to Jesse Drake, my swoon-worthy colleague known for his womanizing ways. Jesse invited me to crash with him, and with each new piece of the enigmatic Jesse puzzle that I started to fit into place, I found myself wondering if Fate had pushed us together for a reason.

If only my husband would stop getting in the way of the man with whom I was meant to be.

Teaser 3

EXCERPT:

I felt his presence behind me as he stood over my shoulder and watched me pound out the chicken.

“Not so hard,” he instructed.

I let up my pounding, hitting the side of the chicken.

“No,” he said, and I felt him move in closer behind me. “Like this.” He placed his hand over mine, lifted our joined hands, and hit firmly in the center of the chicken breast.

But, honestly, I had no idea that we’d just hit raw chicken with a kitchen mallet. All I could feel was the heat from his body standing behind my own and the sizzle from his hand over mine. I felt my body automatically lean back into him for more contact as he brought our joined hands up and back down again.

“Got it?” he breathed into my ear, his breath on my skin sending a tremor down my spine as I realized that his front completely ran the length of my back. I shivered and goose bumps broke out across my skin at his proximity. I felt the sinewy hardness of his muscles, and I was certain that I felt another hardness pressing lower against the base of my spine.

Was he as turned on as I was? Was it possible that the little flirtations that I kept brushing off were sincere?

Was it possible that someone like Jesse Drake was interested in me?

I doubted it, but it didn’t stop me from dreaming.

“Uh,” I stuttered. “Yeah. Got it,” I said, and he broke that sexy moment between us as he backed away, running both of his hands through his hair.

Summers, Stephanie: Willow Creek: Craving

Title: Willow Creek: Craving
Author: Stephanie Summers
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publication Date: March 8, 2014

A small idyllic town nestled in the Appalachian Mountains is home to a thriving community. People are happy, crime is practically nonexistent, life is good…unless you’re Sabine Crowley, who has been chosen to be the next blood bag for the vampire lord who has protected the town from otherworldly creatures for 200 years.

Sabine has big dreams for her life, and none of them include becoming a vampire’s concubine. On her 18th birthday, she seeks solitude to process the cruel turn her destiny has taken. As she sits alone in Cleary Park, a sexy stranger approaches her. He’s tall, mysterious, handsome, and a complete jerk. He soon reveals himself to be a vampire and she’s terrified of him and her strange attraction to him. She wants to get as far away from him as possible, yet finds herself wondering if she’ll see him again.

Remy, the cocky newcomer vampire, has been summoned by his maker, Bastian, to take his place beside him in the hierarchy of vampires inhabiting Willow Creek. He’s none too thrilled to be stuck in a boring little town in the middle of nowhere where he’ll have to feed exclusively from the girl he’s been paired with. He’s repulsed by the whole situation.

When Sabine tries to run away from her fate, Remy is forced to follow and bring her back. They’re unwillingly thrust into each other’s lives and reluctantly find an undeniable attraction between themselves. Will they ever look past their contempt for one another and act on their urges? Or are they destined to hate each other forever?

Blog Tour Banner

Synopsis:

frontcover2When Nick McCoy first met Piper, he was lost and nursing a broken heart; so when she offers him a no-strings attached relationship, he is eager to accept. What he first thinks of as good arrangement, turns into something so much bigger. Something that could change his life forever.

For Piper love doesn’t exist. She spends her time running her business and only entering into casual relationships. She never stays with one man long, and so far that has worked for her. When Nick comes along, he shows her something different; he shows her that things can’t always be simple. And maybe, just maybe, love does exist after all.

Interview:

What was your inspiration for the Atlanta Affair series?

Isabella: Well, I live just south of Atlanta, so for me, that was an obvious setting. Honestly my characters were the inspiration. All three main friends (Victoria, Sage, and Nick) are all inspired by people in my life. I created all the characters first and then let them create the stories.

What is your writing inspiration?

Isabella: I guess you could say that my daughters are the reason I write. I’m trying to make a better life for them. As far as for the books themselves I use personalities I encounter as well as fantasies to inspire me, but I can find inspiration in anything; a song, a photo anything.

How did you become a writer?

Isabella: I actually started writing in High School. Over the years I started several different stories, but always put them down and forgot about them. I thought I would never be able to get them published so I didn’t make them a priority. Recently I saw that Harper Sloan had released Axel. I went to high school with Harper and seeing her with a book out, inspired me to try again. She actually helped me a lot during this whole process.

What words of wisdom would you give to those wanting to get into writing or just starting out?

Isabella: Don’t be afraid to ask for help. The indie author community is amazingly supportive. I still have so much to learn, but they are all so willing to help. I’m proud to be included in such an amazing group of people.

Who is your favorite character from your book?

Isabella: I honestly don’t know if I can answer that. I like all of them for different things. I love that Leland is willing to do what’s necessary to get what he wants. I love that Victoria is so self-aware. I really enjoy the friendship between Victoria and Sage, they fit together so well.

Do you have a genre that you want to get into next?

Isabella: I actually have a suspense novel I am planning at the moment.

Do you plan to start a new book or series (anything outside of your current work)?

Isabella: Of course I plane to write more after my Atlanta Affair Series. After A Wedding Affair, I plan to take a break to start a few different books I’ve been planning. Broken Aria is the first one I plan to focus on.

What is your favorite color?

Isabella: A combo of Turquoise and pink

What is your favorite city you like to visit?

Isabella: Out of the places I have been, probably New York

What place do you dream to visit?

Isabella: Ireland, I traced my family back to County Donegal Ireland and would love to go there.

What do you do outside of writing?

Isabella: I am a single mom, and a baker.

What are you currently working on?

Isabella: I just finished A Wedding Affair and I am participating in Camp Wrimonano working on Broken Aria.

What’s your favorite book?

Isabella: Wow, I don’t have an answer for this one. My favorite book always changes. I would say that whenever the new Janet Evanovich book comes out, I buy it!

What is your favorite guilty pleasure?

Isabella: Probably reality tv, I can’t get enough of the drama. I hate drama in my own life, but give me the Real World/Road Rules Challenge and I’m hooked.

What is one thing that no one really knows about you?

Isabella: That I was in an abusive relationship for eight years before finding the strength to leave.

What’s the best piece of advice you have been given?

Isabella: That there is no such thing as too much when it comes to promotion for your books.

 Happy Teaser
