About the Book

Cover_Pitch ImperfectOnce-famous singer Anjuli Carver has returned to tiny Heaverlock Village alone and nearly broke. She’s poured every last penny into a rambling Victorian manor, hoping to start over. Trouble is, her money pit is falling to pieces and the only restoration architect for miles is Rob Douglas…her ex-fiancé.

For eight years, Rob has regretted not telling Anjuli why he never answered her letters. Being left at the altar broke his heart, but being used for sex one night in London after the fact nearly drove him to the edge of sanity, and he’ll be damned if he allows Anjuli to wreak havoc on his life again. He’ll restore her manor, all right, and give her taste of her own medicine while he’s at it.

But how long can revenge last when memories of their shared past keep rushing to the surface?

Soon, Rob wants answers. Why did Anjuli leave the international spotlight to become a recluse in the Scottish Borderlands? And why does she refuse to sing? Anjuli wants nothing more than to be left alone with her grief, even as she struggles to keep her sexy fantasies about Rob in check. With gossipy villagers, interfering friends and more secrets between them than notes on a scale, Anjuli and Rob will need to find forgiveness in order to work together, then decide if they’re willing to risk it all on an encore performance.

Review

A young woman runs, leaving the man she vowed to love waiting at the church. A young man throws himself completely into building his architectural legacy to forget her and the pain of loosing her

Anjuli Carver is so filled with the pain of loss that she suffers the loss of her voice, trusts in others and looses the money she earned with her voice. She returns home to rebuild her life only to watch it spin out of control once again. But Rob Douglas has secrets of his own.

Can they leave the past behind and build on the love they once knew?

This story is filled with so much character that the secondary characters take on a story all their own! I must admit that Mrs. P is the one whose story screams through my head to be told next. I’ve enjoyed reading Pitch Imperfect and I’m hoping that Ms. Alden can be convinced to make it the beginning of series about the folks in Heaverlock Village.

I recommend Pitch Imperfect by Elise Alden and give it three stars.

Prince Hafiz’s Only Vice Book Tour

Prince Hafiz’s Only Vice

by Susanna Carr

VBT_PrinceHafizsOnlyVice_Banner

About the Book

Cover_Prince Hafiz's Only ViceWhat a royal wants…

Prince Hafiz devotes his days to his people and his nights to indulging his desires with his stunning American mistress, Lacey Maxwell. But duty requires him to marry a “suitable” bride.

In her deepest secret fantasies, Lacey naively hopes to one day wear Hafiz’s ring, until her dreams are shattered and he chooses someone else.

Faced with the reality of a passionless union, Hafiz realizes the years spent with Lacey have done nothing to slake his hunger for her. Instead he’s determined to turn his only vice into a virtue for the sake of his country…and each other!

Excerpt

“I will miss you, Hafiz,” she said brokenly as her throat closed up. The tears she thought couldn’t happen beaded on her eyelashes.

Hafiz let out a shuddering breath. He swept his fingertip against the corner of her eye, taking her tears with him. The moisture clung to his knuckle, and he rubbed it into his skin with his thumb, silently sharing her agony.

The image took a chink out of her hard-earned resolve. Lacey wrapped her arms around her stomach before she crumbled altogether. “I had so many questions to ask you, and now I can’t remember what they were.” All except for one that danced on her tongue. “Did you ever love me?”

Silence throbbed in the air.

Lacey blinked at the question that had tumbled from her mouth. Of all the things to ask, her mind screamed.

Hafiz went unnaturally still.

“I don’t know why I asked.” She shrugged as her pain intensified. “Please, don’t answer that.”

The words were ripped from deep within her. She desperately wanted to know the answer. She never questioned it before, but she had been living in a fantasy.

Lacey had always felt Hafiz loved her. It was in his touch, in his eyes, and in his smile. But he never said the words, even when she chanted her declaration of love in the height of ecstasy.

It was too late to find out. If he didn’t love her, she would never recover. If he did love her, then she would never let go. Even if he was married, even if he kept her hidden. And she couldn’t let that happen.

 

Interview

It is my pleasure to welcome Susanna Carr, author of Prince Hafiz’s Only Vice, to Room With Books!

What do you do when you are not writing?

If I’m not hanging out with my family, I’m reading, spending too much time online, or going on weekend trips.

Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?

I was a reluctant reader until I read my first Harlequin Presents at a very early age. It was THE ARROGANT DUKE by Anne Mather and it introduced me to the romance genre.

Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your first book published?

I got a lot of rejections and it took me years before I published my first book. I gradually learned my craft by writing many manuscripts, participating in a writing group and attending conferences.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

I wouldn’t mind having the power to heal.

What was your first job?

My first job that offered me a paycheck was when I was a teenager and working as a swimming instructor. Which was kind of surprising because it took me forever to learn how to swim.

What types of books do you write?

I write sexy contemporary romances because I like stories that are set in today’s world and are about people I can relate to.

Who’s your main audience?

Romance readers who are looking for fun escapism.

Out of all of your characters, which is your favorite?

I wouldn’t say I have favorites, but there are traits that I favor in my characters. I like heroes who are very protective about their loved ones and I like that heroines who persevere.

What does your writing schedule look like?

I’m always experimenting with my schedule and process but I try to write every day.

Do you use your OWN experiences?

Not really. I will use places I’ve been to but none of my stories are based on real life experiences.

Was it easy to pick the title for your book?

I didn’t choose it. My working title was SECRETS OF A PLAYBOY PRINCE but the editorial team chose PRINCE HAFIZ’S ONLY VICE

What profession would you choose if you were not an author?

I had considered continuing my education and getting a degree in library science. Libraries have always been my second home but I knew deep down I didn’t have the skills to become a librarian.

What are you currently working on?

Right now I’m revising TYCOON’S DELICIOUS DEBT, my July 2015 Harlequin Presents. It’s a revenge story set in Portugal.

FUN FACTS:

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Cookie dough
Night owl, or early bird? Neither. It’s a treat if I can sleep in and go to bed early.
Red, or white wine? White wine
Roller Coasters or Water Rides? Water rides because I have such a fear of roller coasters
Swimming in the ocean or a pool? The ocean
Walking or fitness club? I love to go on walks

Any last words?

Thanks for the interview!

Thanks you for chatting with me and our readers and for allowing Room With Books to be part of your tour!

About the Book

Full Wrap (2)They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Whoever said that didn’t have a family. It should be keep your friends close and you family closer. After all its family who can hurt you the most. I needed change, I needed a new life. Getting a job at a large hospital in another state was the way to do it. A way to get away from my old life, from the people who destroyed me. Working at a large hospital was a way to keep busy and to not procrastinate on my broken life, my old life, and it was working, until I met Rick Harvey. It started out as a favour for the mother I despised, but turned out to be something so much more that happened so fast, it knocked me on my ass. All I wanted to do was work my way up in the law firm I work at, make sure that my father is proud of me and doing well himself and to meet a girl that wouldn’t break my heart. That was the plan until I met Dr Lucy Jackson, my mother’s favour. Call her to make sure that she was ok, settled in. When that didn’t work out in the way that I had hoped, quick and easy, I was asked to go and see her, to make sure that she had all of her arms and legs. Big mistake. One look and I was a gonna. One look and I could see that she was fragile. As it turned out our story would be fragile.

 Full Wrap

 

Excerpt

I walked over and pulled the curtain back and stopped stunned. I didn’t want to see him or speak to him, but here he was in my ER. Deciding to keep it professional, I stepped into the small space and pulled the curtain closed and reached for the chart sitting on the end of the bed.

“I’m Dr. Jackson. They say you’ve been having headaches and dizzy spells?” I looked up at him and saw that he was smiling. “So help you, Rick, if you’re wasting my time right now I will give them a reason to admit you and it won’t be pleasant.”

“You weren’t answering my calls or texts.”

“So, there’s nothing wrong with you then.”

“Lu, please hear me out.”

“I have actual patients who need to see me.” He stood up and came over to me, taking my hand but I pulled it away before he could get a good grip on it.

“I was out of line.”

Killer Date

by Kathy Clark

 

KILLER DATE FINAL

Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 1, 2014
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

About the Book

Recommended for 17 years and older – language / sexual situations / mature subject matter

An inheritance brought him more than he ever could have imagined…

Reno Marks, one of the new owners of the Scandals Investigation Agency, is first on the case to help Jennifer Caldwell find her missing sister, Angie. It’s not that he’s anxious to help so much as it is that he is attracted to Jenny. A little research shows that Angie has run off for a quickie vacation with her new boyfriend. Reno and Jenny’s romantic evening is cut short when that new boyfriend, who just happens to be the son of a powerful drug lord, arrives on Jenny’s doorstep with near-fatal gunshot wounds and evidence that Angie has been taken hostage by a rival Mexican drug cartel.

With the help of a rogue DEA agent, Reno and Jenny set off to infiltrate the cartel’s desert compound and bring Angie home. Their mission quickly gets out of control as they are discovered and chased through a tunnel system that threatens to bury them alive. Even when they think they’re safe, they’re actually trespassing in an even more dangerous place where everyone wants them dead.

During their intense time together, Reno’s feelings for Jenny have grown, but even if they are able to survive, is it possible for these two lost souls to have a future together?

Reno, whose last job had been as a magician in Vegas, doesn’t have enough tricks up his sleeve to save them…or to convince Jenny to stay.

Killer Date is the second book in the Scandals New Adult series of romantic suspense. Each book of the series will focus on one of the offspring of Roger Elliott, a famous musician who left them with a legacy they weren’t expecting. Worse Date Ever, the third book in this series will be released in Winter, 2015 and will tell Tulsa’s story.

Excerpt

 

My phone alarm went off at 9:30. I had left myself little time to get ready before Nick’s appointment, but I needed the sleep more than I needed to shave. Besides, most women like a little stubble. Hopefully, it would prove irresistible to Jenny.

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect today. Should I go wake her up with a kiss? Or maybe more? I was at the top of my game now…rested and ready to go the distance. We could be a few minutes late.

I brushed my teeth and dressed, then spent a few minutes getting my hair just right. I wasn’t girly about it, but I liked my hair to have just the right level of planned casualness…a sort of tousled effect. I stared critically at my image in the mirror. My hair was thick and such a dark shade of brown that it looked black. It wasn’t short, but not really long, partially covering my ears and almost to the collar of my t-shirt.

It was my eyes that were my most striking feature. They were a startling light blue, almost the color of those crystal blue ice cliffs in Alaska. I had always thought they were unique…until I met Killeen, Tulsa, Liberty and Dallas. Apparently, it was the one physical feature we had all inherited from Roger…and it was the identifier that had confirmed our place in this unusual family of ours.

My face wasn’t GQ elegant like Dallas’, but I had been told by plenty of women…and a few men…that it was more ruggedly handsome with square jaws and a nose that had just the smallest bump that I had earned in a fight with one of my mother’s “dates”. He and I had disagreed on whether or not he had the right to hit my mother. It had been the first time I had faced my own mortality. I knew if I didn’t give it all I had that he would beat me senseless or maybe even to death. So, I’d walked away with a broken nose while he had a bloodied eye, missing teeth, a couple broken ribs…and a quick exit out our front door.

I really thought Mom would be grateful, but she lit into me about running off her boyfriend. It had been my first lesson in how much I didn’t know about women.

I gave my hair one last flick, then went next door to Jenny’s room. I knocked gently, expecting her to still be asleep. When the door pulled open, and I saw her, completely dressed and wide awake, I struggled to hide my disappointment. “You look rested. Dylan must have left you alone.”

“I fell asleep as soon as I got to bed, and I don’t think I moved at all,” she told me. “I don’t usually get more than five or six hours of sleep a night.”

I was standing just outside her door, and she motioned me to come in.

“I need to talk to you for a second,” she continued.

Of course, I assumed this was an invitation to pick up on our make-out session, so I stepped inside, trying not to look as eager as I felt.

She sucked in a deep breath and continued, “Yesterday night…before Miguel showed up…was…”

I waited. Fantastic. Amazing. Exciting. I tried to guess the word she would use.

“…a mistake,” she stated. “I can’t blame it on those lemonade things because by the time we…uh…you know…I was completely sober.” She gave me an apologetic smile that was really more of a grimace. “I think I was just lonely. I hope you didn’t read too much into it.”

“Me? Nah…it was one of those spur-of-the-moment things.” That was what came out of my mouth, but inside my head, it was what the fuck?

Her face relaxed with relief. “Oh, good. I was afraid this would be awkward. Don’t take this wrong, but you’re not really my type. I’m more into the clean-cut, preppie types, and you’re…well…sort of wild and have all the show biz stuff going on.”

“Sure, I get it.” But I didn’t get it at all. She had stolen my line. Jenny wasn’t my type. She wore her hair too short, she had never experienced life outside of Austin and she was too much of a workaholic. The twinkle in her eyes, the perfect voluptuous body and the tempting curve of her lips had temporarily distracted me.

“Whew!” I said with pretended gratitude. “I’m glad we got that settled.” I glanced at the door, as anxious to escape as I had been to knock on it just a few minutes ago. “I think I smell breakfast. John’s an amazing cook.”

“Good. I’m starving.”

She brushed past me and headed down the hallway. I followed, but I felt like I had just been hit by a truck. That wasn’t at all the way I had expected today to go.

Confessions of a Self-Help Writer Book Tour

Confessions of a Self-Help Writer

by Benjamin W. DeHaven

VBT Confessions of a Self Help Writer Tour Banner copy

About the Book

MEDIA KIT Confessions_updated_highRes

A ghost, a philanthropist, a con man, a devout Catholic, a gigolo, a savior, an heir, a common man, and an addict are just some of the words used to describe Michael Enzo, who some sources credit with ghost-writing more than 108 self-help books on behalf of celebrities, politicians and business leaders. After failing to make what he considered to be a positive impact on society he began to destroy those closest to him including Benjamin DeHaven, the author of this book, and former collaborator. Defrauding an industry for almost 20 years by exploiting people’s insecurities and profiting from them, more than likely these friends contributed more to the field of self-help, while profiting from it, than they will ever know. Believing they could only understand people’s problems by suffering along with them, they lived on the razor’s edge. If you’ve ever picked up a tell-all biography of a celebrity or a title from the self-help section at the bookstore, certainly you would question the source. This is an inside look at the mind of Michael Enzo and it is the author’s hope that people will start helping themselves again after reading it. Discover what turns someone from preaching salvation towards seeking its destruction. You won’t believe this could be true.

The Siren

Laments of Angels and Dark Chemistry # 1

by Meg Xuemei X

Published: August 9th, 2014

Word Count: 80,000

Genre: YA Fantasy Romance Action Adventure

About the Book

Two boys tied to her irrevocably. One offers life disguised as death; the other leads to death with unfathomable love. Her choice decides whether the world turns or ends.

Lucienne Lam, born to rule as the last of the Sirens, is running out of time. If she fails to find the TimeDust, an ancient power, her enemies will have their wish–her head on a spike. And she’ll never know the love promised by Vladimir, a fierce warrior of the Czech royal bloodline.

Except Ashburn, a genius ‘farm boy,’ has found the TimeDust first, and its power binds Lucienne to him. She must convince him to sever this forced bond so she can return to her first love. But breaking the link seems insurmountable when the TimeDust launches its own ominous agenda and the two boys prepare to duel to the death over her.

Excerpt

Vladimir reacted instantly, catching her before she hit the wall. The impact drove them both to the ground. “I’m glad you’re on top,” said Vladimir with another groan. “I absorbed most of the hit.”

“That’s very kind of you.” Lucienne turned to Vladimir, their faces inches away. His warm breath and pheromone made her forget where she was. Rushing footsteps brought her to her senses.

“Vlad?”

“Yes, Lucia?” he whispered, his hands pressing against the small of her back.

“We’ve been discovered.”

“I know. But there’s no need for them to yell. That’s kind of rude.”

“They’re not yelling.”

“No, but they will.”
