#WOTR #Spotlight – H D’Agostino @hdagostino001


Heather D'Agostino

About the Author

I’m a stay-at-home mom turned author. I live in Central NY where it is currently snowing and winter lasts as long as summer. When I’m not writing, I’m usually at the dance studio with my daughter or the soccer fields with my son. I’m a coffee addict along with anything sweet. I have no problem striking up a conversation with a total stranger, and some of my best friends were met through the internet.

When and Why did you start to write?

One day I was reading a short story and decided, “Hey, I can do this.” I was very apprehensive when I first started out. It was very intimidating having a stranger read my work, but I put the story on a fanfiction site. I got great reviews, and so I did another one. I had written 4 full length novels when one reviewer messaged me and asked if I had ever published anything. They said they’d buy the story I’d been working on if I ever decided to make it a book. I’d never considered writing for a profit. It was just a fun hobby. After thinking on it for a few days, I decided to take the plunge. I searched for a beta, and then reworked the story so it would no longer be fanfiction. I tweaked the characters, changed a few names, and Unbreak Me was born. This was published in April 2013, and I’ve been going strong ever since.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I don’t read as much as I used to, but there are a few that I one click. Lately though I’ve found a lot of new to me authors. To name a few of the always read authors… Kristen Proby, Abbi Glines, J. Sterling, M. Leighton, Shey Stahl, Skye Turner, Jillian Dodd, Heidi McLaughlin,   Michelle Lynn, Vi Keeland, K. Bromberg, and I’m sure there are others.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

When I first started writing I was so scared of running out of ideas. I was right in the middle of my second book and was thinking “what happens when I finish? Will the next story just come to me? Am I going to be a one hit wonder?” It really did worry me back then. Once I took the pressure off, the stories started coming like wildfire. Now I have more voices in my head then I do time to write them. I can’t turn it off, and while it’s nice to have that problem, it’s also a burden. Sometimes I get headaches from trying to do other things. I’ve missed family time because I’m too busy listening to my characters. It’s taken me a little over a year to find balance, and I think my kids and husband are better off now that I’ve have.

The writing part is easy. It’s the rest that’s hard. AKA the publishing and marketing part.

What are you working on now?

I just finished the first draft of the next Cook Brothers book, Trevor’s book. I’m starting edits on the next Witness book, and I’m getting ready to plan out the next Sutter family book.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

I think I’m a little of both. I usually know ahead of time how I want a story to end, what the main issue between the characters will be, and how they’ll resolve it. As far as the meat that surrounds that? Well that’s the pantser part. I just let it come to me, and sometimes a character will completely throw me for a loop. Sometimes the best books come from those moments though.

#ReleaseDay #Review – Her Russian Knight by Red Phoenix

Her Russian Knight

RELEASE DATE : MARCH 27th

Rytsar Durov is a sadist—and he’s upset. He just sent Tono Nosaka packing
and is about to confront Master Brad Anderson. Bones may be broken.

The Russian Dom is a force unto himself, and he intends to take care of the threat once and for all.

No one touches radost moya. NO ONE!

Nothing fazes this sexy Russian Dom, but how will he cope when he finds out the tragedy that’s befallen his comrade—the only man he calls Brother?

Goodreads

Amazon

 

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

How long we have waited for our favorite Russia to get his book.  I think he is a Sadist that any reader will fall in love with.  To see him love Brie just as much a Thane.  To watch him protect her just as fierce as Sir, it is just so swoon worthy.

Rytsar is the character who has commanded the series from the start.  I mean I remember my thoughts about him in the first scenes with him and LOVED him….I feared him for sure and was scared outta my mind because he is a very aggressive sadist but I loved him completely.   I have been wanting him to find love and love that he has found someone to open his heart but he needs a love all for himself.

Brie is a mess and still trying to navigate life with Thane in the hospital.  She is still dealing with the Beast and her attacks on her family but mainly she is lost without her condor love.  Rytsar is the perfect person to help her with her life and living during Thanes hospitalization.  Each of Sir’s friends have been around at the right time and Rytsar’s time is now.  He made sure that no one hurts his radost moya or his moye solntse!!

I loved the story but my heart is aching because of the final scenes..I need more and I need to know what happens soon.  My Russian Knight needs me!!!

#CoverReveal – Max Henry MC

Title: Existential
Series: Fallen Aces MC #4
Author: Max Henry
Genre: MC Romance Suspense
Release Date: April 18, 2017 
How much suffering can a man withstand before he finally breaks? A question I used to ask myself often. Now I know the answer. 

As president of the Fallen Aces MC Fort Worth chapter, I’m looked to for guidance in times of crisis. I’m expected to set personal grievances aside and lead by example. Yet how can I do that when those grievances robbed me of my family, my life? My reason to be at the head of the table? 

My father: murdered. My baby sister: killed the same day. And my other sister? A mystery. I’m drowning in my desolation and yet nobody seems to care. Or maybe it’s the fact I won’t let them close enough to help? Either way, my losses are my own, and I’ll deal with them the only way I know how—by punishing myself. 

I’ve got it all figured out, at least, I thought I did. Until one woman, a traveller passing by, unravels the master plan. I see it in her eyes, the same distance, the same feeling that she doesn’t belong—that her time here is wasted. 

One woman who mirrors me in every way, and suddenly I find a reason to hold off the reaper a little longer. A reason to stay at the head of the table. A reason to show those who’ve hurt me that, although they brought the beast to its knees, I won’t lay down to die without a fight. 

Existential is book number four in the Fallen Aces MC series, but can be read as a standalone.



He reaches out and threads his fingers under mine, bringing our joined hands between us on the floor. “Do you think it’s weak if a man admits his fears?”

I frown, squeezing his hand tight. “No.” Why would he even think that? “I think it’s honorable. It takes so much bravery to admit you have faults.”

“You think?”

“I know.” After all, aren’t I the authority on keeping faults a secret?

He sniffs, staring at the toes of his boots where they rest against the base of the washer. “Since everything went to shit last year, I get … I guess the only way to describe it is angry at myself.”

“What for? Do you blame yourself for what happened?”

His head drops back again, and he closes his eyes as his thumb traces a path on the back of my hand. “Yeah, but I know I shouldn’t. Still, knowin’ what I’m thinkin’ is wrong doesn’t make it go away. I still blame myself for everything, still hate myself for it.”

“That’s natural, though. You went through something traumatic, from what you’ve said of it, so you’ve got strong reactions that need a place to rest.”

“I went on a bender after they died,” he explains, opening his eyes to stare at the ceiling. “Drank, binged on coke, picked fights with my friends, and it wasn’t until I couldn’t remember what it was like to be straight that I finally realized why I did it.”

“Distraction?”

“To die.” 

A lump lodges in my throat as I take him in. At face value he’s strength and dominance. He’s a huge guy, intimidating to those who don’t know him, with his black clothing, leather, and piercings. He puts out an image of power, over others, and himself. But underneath it all he hides this.

“Don’t,” I utter. “Don’t say that again.”

“Why?” He rolls his head to look me in the eye. “It’s the truth, Dagne. I don’t want to do this anymore. Every day is hard. I wake up wishin’ it was time to go to sleep again, dreadin’ the day before it’s even happened.” His face moves through frustration and anger, glimpses of pain and despair between. “You have any idea what it’s like to just want to curl up in a ball and pretend the world doesn’t exist?”

“Yeah, I do,” I say. “I also know what it’s like to want to die. To know you’re too gutless to do it yourself, so you wish for something that’ll do it for you, like an illness, an accident, or a masochistic fucking father who hates the fact you breathe the same air as him.” Hooch’s eyes go wide, and I realize in that moment tears streak my cheeks. But fuck it—he needs to hear it. “I also know what it’s like to be hurt so bad that you finally believe that day has come, and in that second your foolishness and selfish thoughts come back to haunt you. What it’s like to realize when you’re faced with your own mortality that you don’t want to die … you just wish you were someone else, living another life.”

“Dagne—”

“Ah.” I lift my finger to stop him. “Nope. I’m not finished, mister.”

A small smile plays at the corner of his lips, and he reaches out to wipe my tears. “Carry on.”

“What you have to face is that you have the power to be somebody else. Fuck what your head tells you, Hooch. Your mind is a goddamn liar. It feeds off your fear, shows you your flaws while hiding your strengths. If you’re not happy,” I say, jabbing him in the chest, “change it. Do something about it. But don’t quit.”

“I’ve tried.” He captures my hand, focusing on the flesh of my palm as he traces the lines with his finger. “I really have, but my battery’s run dry, girl.”

“No,” I say, shaking my head. “It hasn’t. You just haven’t found what charges it yet.”

Max is the author of dark, and highly emotional romance. Her Butcher Boys series is centered around a group of ex-street kids who have teamed up with an indebted motorcycle club to take down a notorious drug lord. And her new series, the Fallen Aces MC, is a spin-off from this dark and dangerous world. Her writing has been described as ‘gripping’, and ‘addictive’, taking you on an ’emotional roller coaster ride’.

Originally born and bred in New Zealand, Max now resides with her family in beautiful and sunny Queensland, Australia. Life with two young children can be hectic at times, and although she may not write as often as she would like, Max wouldn’t change a thing. When she’s not engrossed in her dark and twisted fictional worlds, she can be found enjoying the outdoors while 4wd-ing with her family.

#Review – Penny Lane, Paranormal Investigator: The Ouija Board Mystery by David J. Cooper

Penny Lane, Paranormal Investigator - The Ouija Board Mystery (Penny Lane - Paranormal Investigator Book 1) by [Cooper, David J]

When a group of teenage schoolgirls fool around in the school break, they accidentally injure one of their friends. She dies as a result. They try to contact her by using a Ouija board. They believe that they have contacted her, but release an evil entity instead which threatens their lives. They contact Penny Lane – a paranormal investigator, for help. She tells them what they have to do to destroy it. They follow her instructions but four of them die mysteriously. The two terrified remaining survivors return to see Penny, but is it too late for her to save them? A story that will make you think twice before dabbling with the occult.

Goodreads

This story is very much intriguing. I was very excited to get into this as the author starts from the very beginning letting us know that this is based on real events. Which in turn makes me want to read it even more. We get started and get some background on the village and the people. We meet Penny Lane as well. I thought this was going to be more about Penny Lane actually investigating the paranormal activities but this was not the case. Four girls try to summon their friend who tragically passed away but they unlock some bad spirits. From here the story kind of jumps around between these girls and a few other characters with different types of paranormal things happening. Very little is actually about Penny Lane investigating the incidents. It is a short story and easy to read but I wish the author would have spent more time building the setting and letting us get to know the characters better. I really wanted this story to be great. It was good for me but it has the potential for so much more. I look forward to see what else David Cooper sends our way.

#WOTR – #REVIEW – Love and the Corps (The Heart Nebula Series #2) by Ava Cuvay

Love and the Corps (The Heart Nebula Series #2)

Bound by duty, two soldiers yield to their hearts’ command.

Captain Jo Behsue has never questioned her career with Central Command’s leading military force—until now. Recent mission failures and the constant battle for acceptance from her fellow Corpsmen kindle her frustration, while the attention of a golden-eyed Klorakian mercenary ignites her body. Wrapped in his arms, she discovers even a scarred, hollow shell of a captain can love.

An officer in the Klorakian militia, Lux fights to return the rightful monarch to their homeworld’s throne—a planet which scorns his genetic shortcomings. He is loyal to his cause and king, but faces a bleak future once their mission is complete. His seduction of the combative yet beautiful Captain Behsue provides a glimpse of hope, and he fights for a life with Jo, who finds only beauty in his defects.

This book is intended for a mature audience. It contains graphic language, vivid relations, and the word “moist.”

Goodreads

Willing and wanting! Packed full of action and sexual angst. Captain Jo is with the Corps and Klorakian mercenaries are their allies. Jo has always been the ugly one. Her life is with the Corps, life and body. She has trained hard and believes she is invincible. She goes on a mission and is saved by the Klorakians. A certain Klorakian, Lux, is the one that saves her. Lux is an outcast himself. Full of genetic defects by Klorakian standards. Both are unwanted until they run into each other. Naturally fireworks explode. They both find refuge in each other but Jo continues to fight it as she is constantly trying to figure what is right and wrong. Lots of secrets are uncovered between the two of them. This is a sexually charged push and pull between them but they are always in the middle of a battle. Whether it be with the PITAS or with their emotions. They overcome many obstacles and then begin to wonder if they are worth each others time. This is such a crazy ride. Love the characters and the world building (or space building).It’s outstanding! You feel like you are right in the middle with the sights and sounds of all the soldiers. This author has an incredible knack of pulling you right in the story and making it where you absolutely don’t want to put the book down. Well done, Ava! Another out of this world story!

Ava Cuvay

Ava Cuvay writes out of this world romance featuring sassy heroines, often-alien-but-always-sexy heroes, and an alcoholic beverage or two… Set in a galaxy far, far away. Think “Star Wars” meets “Firefly”, without Jar-Jar Binks, and with a lot more heat.

She resides in central Indiana with a hubby who makes her laugh and kiddos who are growing up way too quickly. She enjoys the world of wine and spirits, amusement park thrill rides, and laughing at her own foibles (yeah, she laughs a lot).

She believes life is too short to surround yourself with negative people, and Han Solo shot first. When not writing, Ava is thinking about writing. Or wine. And she’s always thinking about bacon.

#Review #MC – Shade’s Lady by Joanna Wylde

Shade's Lady (Reapers MC, #6.5)

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

Goodreads

Amazon

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Oh boy…I loves my MC books and this series has never let me down. I was super excited to read about Shade, The National President, because if the regular presidents are alpha and brooding what the heck is the National President going to be like. He totally did not let me down!
Mandy is a down on her luck waitress at the local small town dive bar. She is currently not dating but dating a member of the Reapers MC Support club. Rebel is a total worthless POS but she is all about a good time plus not falling in love. Love is bad. Love is very bad!
Shade has watched Mandy forever and it is making him mental to see her with the dip Rebel. When he and Mandy are thrown together we find out exactly how bad of a guy Rebel is…..smh…..
The chemistry is great between Shade and Mandy. I loved watching her give him grief and not “fall in line” like all the other club girls do. She will not be just another girl. Shade is going nuts. What about her is so special? He has no idea but he can’t get her out of his head. He hates and loves this woman because she actually tells him what to do annnnnnd no one tells him what to do but the fact that he does what she says = hilarious!!!
I love the man that Shade is. He is who he is. He is outlaw but he lives and dies by his code. I love the support he gives Mandy and how he realizes early on he should tread lightly with her. I love love love the banter but man the final scene……yeah ugh……the breakfast line…….yeah it was a good one!!!

One More Night by Sarah O’Rourke

I receive this book from the author for an honest review.

Oh ladies! I love the perfect cavemen alpha males you write!!  I swoon at each book and Shaw is no different than the others!!  He was a giant swoon worthy male.  I total imagined him as a silver fox FYI !

Shaw is a man who knows what he wants and gets it.  He has confidence and enough arrogance to get any woman but he wants Waverlee.  He wants the unconfident but sassy waitress at the bar he hangs out at.

Shaw, with the help of his best friend and wife, convince Waverlee to hang out with them for the night and see that Shaw is a good guy.  So after a long night of hanging and drinking she gives in and gives him “one night” only.  As sweet as Waverlee’s declaration sounded, Shaw was not about to let her go.  He knew this woman was his and his alone.

When an accident happens, Shaw and Waverlee make some discovers and some declaration that definitely changes the “one night” only rule!!

 

One More Night Teaser Flag Now Live

button-excerpt

Shivering against him as she parted her lips to speak, Waverlee moaned as his tongue swept forward, stealing the opportunity to deepen their kiss. And holy moly, the man could kiss. And not just any old kiss either. It was the-steal-your-breath-I-can’t-live-without-his-touch-because-nothing-else-in-the-world-matters kind of kiss a girl spends her life dreaming about. Their tongues danced together for long minutes as everything else faded away. The people. The noise. Everything took a backseat to the fierce passion Shaw created with a simple touch of his mouth to hers.

Forcing herself to find her voice when Shaw lifted his mouth from hers to take a deep breath, Waverlee flashed a furtive glance up at his darkened eyes. “Wow,” she breathed shakily, clutching handfuls of his light blue dress shirt in her fists as the world seemed to spin at warp speed, “I..I…don’t think I’ve ever felt anything like that before,” she whispered, the words catching in her throat as his finger swept against her lower lip.

“Then you best hold on real tight to me, baby, ‘cause I’m just getting started,” he replied, dropping his head to steal another deep, wet kiss from her lips as he curved one big hand around her neck, wrapping her silky hair around his fist and tugging gently.

#AuthorSpotlight – Hell Yeah Cowboy Collision by @KandiSilvers1 #Western

cowboy-colision-cover

Former reality star, housewife Kendall Swanson, has it all. A luxury high-rise condo in Los Angeles, an expensive convertible and her job is personal assistant to television’s hottest producer. What more could a girl want? Certainly not what her boss asked of her. Go back to her small town, and for his next reality TV sensation, find the ultimate single cowboy to host the ranch “makeovers”. Faster than you can say “stuffed turkey” it’s goodbye palm trees, hello Kerrville, AKA Hell, and yes, it’s frozen over. At least on her parent’s front lawn. How bad could the holidays with her family be? Other than the reindeer in the house and Deacon Cutes being back in town.

Deacon Cutes wasn’t expecting Kendall to blow into town in an over-priced car and designer handbag. He should’ve known she’d be back, he was here for the same reason. The only reason anyone returned to the small town was for weddings, funerals and the occasional holiday. One wedding, one after party and he’d be back on the road singing country songs to star crazed fans—make that after thirty days of community service for a minor infraction.

Wait, did the reindeer just talk? Time to lay off the sauce and not the cranberry kind.

EXCERPT

“Who wants carrot cake?” The church organist offered up happily, having been excluded from the proverbial bomb dropped in the living room.

Fritz reared, his body bumping both Sadie and Kendall. The cake went up and Kendall fell back. Deacon reached out to stop her fall but instead with the momentum both went over. The cake landed as the tree crashed to the floor with a scatter of ornaments and tinsel. Garland landed on Kendall’s face. Her soft curves sandwiched between the fallen Christmas tree and Deacon’s body.

He’d be a liar to say he hadn’t pictured himself on top of her. However, no clothes and no audience had also been part of that erotic image. He removed the garland from her and stared down into her eyes. From where he was laying, it didn’t take a rocket scientist to realize their bodies fit together perfectly. His groin stirred as his chest experienced her breasts coming against him hard with the shallow breaths leaving her lungs.

A flicker of anger crossed her features and she gritted her teeth. “Considering the tree is under me,” she whispered in seething temper. “I highly doubt that is a branch poking into my hip.”

Of all the comments and of all the girls he could have been in the situation with, he couldn’t think of one he’d rather be pressed against. The scent of her became damn near intoxicating and it took every ounce of strength not to kiss her senseless. He leaned in close to her ear and purposely blew warm breath against her skin. “It’s not a branch, baby, but most definitely wood.”

She hissed and struggled to get up slapping him lightly, which induced him to laugh. “I hate you, Deacon!”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

kandi-silvers-pic

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, I still call Sin City home. I’ve always been a sucker for romance novels and movies, especially romantic comedies. Writing is more than just words to me it’s captivating slices of characters’ lives and sharing them with the reader. I’m a firm believer that heroes and heroines had a life before page one of any story and their past as well as life experiences, made them who they are.

Coming from the southwest I have a major soft spot for cowboys, but also love suspense, a bit of intrigue and kick-ass heroines. Of course, there is always the time to slip in a good paranormal. I try to keep my writing diverse and always on the naughty side.

Happy reading!

#WOTR #Spotlight – KL Kreig @klkreig

K.L. Kreig

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

K.L. Kreig: As a USA Today Bestselling author, I write stories that are deeply emotional with flawed characters, because humans ARE flawed and if we read about perfect characters living in their perfect world, first of all, snoozer, but secondly, we never experience the gratification of redemption.

Outside of writing, I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicous cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

When and Why did you start to write?

I didn’t start writing until I was in my mid-40’s and I started writing because, truthfully, I was reading a lot of less than stellar books and wondered if I could do better. I wrote 2 1/2 books before publishing my first one, Surrendering, in Dec 2014.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

Pepper Winters and CD Reiss are my two go-to’s. I’ll one-click anything they write whether I’ve read the blurb or not. Other favorites include, JA Huss, Skye Warren, Lisa Renee Jones, Julie Kenner, Meghan March, Trisha Wolfe, and Callie Hart. There are so many more. I could go on for hours.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

That it’s by far the easiest part of everything book related. I didn’t fully realize when I got into this business, not only would I have to not only put out an top notch product, but that I’d have to become a marketing expert, teaser and trailer designer, swag artist, PR guru, CEO/CFO/CMO/COO and any other “chiefs” you can think of. Luckily my husband has helped me with as many of these things as he possibly can, so I can focus as much time on writing as possible.

What are you working on now?

My new Finding Me duet. Book 1, Lost In Between, releases Feb 20 and I’m currently finishing up writing the conclusion to that, called Found Underneath, which is expected to release sometime in May 2017 (date TBD). Then after that I have a couple of spin-offs from other books I’ve written planned. After that…who knows.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

Haha. Writing is probably the only part of my life where I DO fly by the seat of my pants. Do I plot? Sure, but only high level. Do I outline every chapter before I start? Hell no. A) that’s too much work, and B) for me, I find I need to let my characters lead me and not the other way around. Every single book I’ve written has turned out differently than what I originally planned. Sometimes even the twists I planned don’t pan out. I thought about getting a little more structured and maybe I’ll need at some point if I think of a complex series or whatnot but so far it’s worked for me and I’m not about to fix what isn’t broken.
