Made for Us
by Samantha Chase
Series: The Shaughnessy Brothers, #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 4, 2015

 

Can’t make time for love?

The Shaughnessy brothers have spent the years since their mother’s untimely death taking care of each other and trying to make their father proud. Oldest son Aidan is hard-working, handsome, successful-and still single. Sure, he’d like to have his own family someday, but who has the time?

She’ll show him how to find it

Zoe Dalton, a stunning designer Aidan meets on one of his construction jobs, has the beauty and heart to make Aidan realize how much he could be missing. But it’s not easy to break down walls you’ve spent years building up. Now there’s a major storm bearing down on the North Carolina coast, and it could be catalyst enough to force Aidan and Zoe into some major decisions of the heart.

 

 

 

 

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan’s Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40’s to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.

When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.

 

 



 

Brave the Heat

Release Date: September 1, 2015

 

The only fire he can’t put out…

Jordan McKenna is back in town, and Fire Chief Gavin Maguire’s feelings when he sees her after all these years are as raw as the day she left. Then he was just a kid wearing his heart on his sleeve. Now he spends every day trying to atone for the tragedy he couldn’t prevent.

Is the torch he carries for her…

Jordan’s life has not exactly worked out the way she expected. A divorced mother of two with a failed acting career, Jordan’s biggest concern about coming back to Old Brookfield was seeing her first love. But when a series of suspicious fires breaks out, Jordan and Gavin realize that dealing with the sparks between them may be the least dangerous of their problems.

Stedronsky, Kimberly: Below Unforgiven

BUcover

Below Unforgiven (Movie Trilogy One)

Kimberly Stedronsky

New Ditzel

Synopsis:

Vivian Hale doesn’t cope. She runs.

Spending the summer in small town Pennsylvania, working for minimum wage in the old trailer-turned-video-store, Vivian longs to move on after her world came crashing down around her. She’s given up on her acting dream and is willing to do whatever it takes to make enough money to get a place of her own and start over- anything, of course, but sacrifice her pride.

Oscar winning, LA director Keaton Thorne is back home for the first time in seven years, determined to survive one weekend with his family. As best man in his little brother’s wedding, he has one job- show up with his gorgeous wife and prove to everyone in the small town that he’s better than his father had ever been.

When Keaton makes her a clichéd offer that she just can’t refuse, Vivian tries to protect her heart. She knows the difference between right and wrong.

Between moral and immoral…

Between acting… and reality.

One weekend. One man.

One yes.

Excerpt:

Below Unforgiven (Movie Trilogy, Book One)

“Vivian Hale,” I greeted him, clearing my throat. “Laney Hale’s granddaughter.”

Everyone in town introduced themselves by name and relation. Apparently, I was no exception. Maybe it was a precautionary measure to thwart inbreeding.

He continued staring, and I grew more and more self-conscious by

the second. “You have a classy name.”

Classy, like whoops, your poor parents had no idea you’d turn

out to be such a hick? I yanked on my hair too hard, trying to nonchalantly brush at the stray strands in my fingers. “Thanks. I’m named after a movie character.”

Well, there you have it. Stamp loser on my forehead and call it a day.

“Really?” His eyes lit up, and as they moved from California

gold rush to mossy green, I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Pretty Woman. Julia Roberts,” I added.

He smiled, the kind of smile that was meant to drop all defenses- and panties. “Suits you.”

No prostitute references? This was a first. At least this guy had manners. “Thanks,” I handled his comment uneasily, willing my nervous system

to quit with the rapid-fire anxiety attacks.

“I guess Snow White would have been a little too arrogant.”

Snow… White?

Did he just compliment me?

I felt my burning vanity prickle and come to life, and I batted my sooty lashes, flirt-ready.

“Keaton, huh? As in the actor?”

He laughed, and the dimple in his right cheek interrupted his

face’s symmetry in the perfect way. “You’re a little young to know the great Michael Keaton’s work,” he challenged.

Looking him over, I arched my eyebrow. He couldn’t be more than

twenty-five or twenty-six himself. I took a step back, gesturing to the screen.

“Are you kidding me? Beaverjuice? It’s a classic.”

He groaned, and I grinned, toothy and stupid while I turned off

the DVD player. “Come on, I’ve got to be around here somewhere,” he said, scanning the movie titles on the wall. I nodded, stepping out from behind the counter.

“There you are. Right below Unforgiven.”

Callahan, Skye: Fractured Legacy, Book 1 in the Darkness Bound Series

Fractured Legacy

Release Tour

Excerpt:

“Why don’t you tell us about the box?” Cole said, her voice calm and steady despite the marionette-like stare of Mr. Edwards.

“It’s my box.” He repeated.

“Fine. Alright. It’s your box. I just want to know more about it, like the carvings. Do you know what they are?”

Mr. Edwards cocked his head and squinted at the younger sister. “Carvings are something made by cutting wood. An object or design formed by cutting and shaping a material such as wood or stone—”

Kaylyn had heard enough, but as soon as she took a step forward, Cole glared at her.

“The guy has gone dark. His power ring has faded.” She kept her jaw clenched, wondering how much—if any—of the conversation the man actually understood by now. “Let’s just grab the jewels and get out before his head explodes.”

“There are no explosive devices in my head, Kaylyn.”

She bit her lip, she certainly hadn’t offered her name. “Okay, Mr. Edwards—”

“Gib.”

“Sure….” She choked on her words as the man’s lips turned up into what she assumed was supposed to be a smile. “Gib, what’s going on here?”

“You’re trying to take my box.”

“Yeah,” Kaylyn nodded. This conversation was getting redundant fast. “We got that part. We’re quick like that, you know.”

“I do know. You thought you could find my box and take it away. But, I won.”

“So you did, Gib.” Cole took a step forward, but marionette-man hunkered over the box like it was his heir.

Cole took another step. “Where’s Mr. Edwards?”

“He took a vacation. He’s probably sipping Mai Tais on the shores of Maui right now.”

“That’s a quick trip.”

“Yes, anything is possible when you use your imagination. You two are particularly familiar with that, aren’t you? Losing yourselves in a slightly altered unreality.”

Kaylyn shook her head and stumbled backward. For a dimwit, he definitely had down the creepy intuition and dictionary memorization.

Available on Amazon, October 22, 2013.
