Seventeen-year-old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving.
It’s the code her father, a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, raised her to live by. Yet when her dad is killed carrying out Terror business, Violet knows it’s up to her to do the saving. To protect herself, and her vulnerable younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the club—including Chevy, the boy she’s known and loved her whole life.

LONG WAY HME - RDL teaser 2
  CHEVY The instructions of the English homework I didn’t do hangs out from the top of my folder: Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both. Story of my life. According to my football coach, I chose wrongly on the two crap paths I had to face last week. I just ran into Coach on the way to English, and he ripped into me for my sorry decision-making skills when it came to me choosing to stand up for the Reign of Terror Motorcycle Club instead of a member of my football team. I didn’t just get my ass chewed out, his tirade made me late for English with no tardy note. Which is great since my English teacher hates late students like I hate riding my motorcycle in forty degree weather while it rains. I round the corner, then peek through the small window on the door of my class. Ms. Whitlock stands in front of her desk in her patented white button-down shirt, gray pencil skirt, and dark-rimmed glasses. From the back row, my best friend Razor meets my eyes and shakes his head. Damn. That means she’s in one of her moods where she’s refusing to let anyone in. I’m not a tail-tucked-between-my-legs type of guy, but this lady is one of the few who can reduce me to begging. If she doesn’t let me in, then she’ll mark me as absent, the front office will think I skipped, and that means I won’t be able to play at tonight’s football game. The window rattles when I knock. The entire class turns their heads in my direction, but Ms. Whitlock doesn’t. The muscles in my neck tighten. She is one of the hardest core people I know and my grandfather is the president of a motorcycle club. That says something. She starts for the white board and I knock on the door again. This time, Ms. Whitlock does look my way and she grants me the type of glare reserved for people who kick puppies. I got it. I’m late. I’m the scum of humanity, so let my ass in so I can play football. There’s this guy in my club, Pigpen. He’s about the same age as Ms. Whitlock, late twenties, and he’s a walking hard-on for this woman even though she would never give him the time of day. He practically runs into walls when she’s around because he’s too focused on checking her out. I don’t see gorgeous—all I see is seriously pissed off and the person standing between me and playing. Ms. Whitlock points at the clock over her desk. She’s telling me I can wait. If I’m lucky, she’ll open the door after the quiz that I’ll receive a zero on. If I’m not so lucky, she won’t open the door at all. Two pathetic paths and I could only travel one. Nowhere in that stupid poem did it mention there was good and bad to both paths and that sometimes it’s best not to choose, but to set up camp at the fork and do nothing at all. I slam my hand into the nearest locker, almost relishing the sting. “Feel better?” A glance across the hallway and I freeze. Doesn’t matter how many times I see her in a day, she still manages to take my breath away.

First Look: Sin With Me | J.T. Geissinger

We are so thrilled to reveal the cover and give you a first look at an excerpt from J.T. Geissinger's SIN WITH ME, which releases April 25th!

Geissinger-SinWithMe-23514-CV-FT-V6 (1)

Don't you love the cover? Find out more about SIN WITH ME below!

About SIN WITH ME

The past she can’t remember. The secret he hides. And a love that’s worth risking it all.
After a devastating car crash stole both her family and her memory, Grace Stanton was left with no past and an uncertain future. Now Grace likes to keep things simple. No sleepovers, never date a guy more than a month, and never, ever fall in love. Which is exactly why Grace avoids Bad Habit’s lead guitarist, Brody Scott, at all costs. The green-eyed, sexy-as-hell musician has “trouble” tattooed all over him, and Grace isn’t taking any chances with her heart.
Brody knows he doesn’t deserve an amazing woman like Grace—her creamy skin, red hair, or that smart mouth that fuels his every fantasy—but there’s something between them that’s more than chemistry. Something real. He’ll just have to convince Grace that he’s worth the risk—and hide the secret that haunts his worst dreams. But when fate plays a cruel hand, Brody’s darkest sin suddenly threatens his last chance at redemption…and the life of the woman he loves.

Read an excerpt from SIN WITH ME:

Like fingers interlacing, several things slowly come together and fit into place. “You could fall in love with me and not remember it?” I whisper. She swallows and nods. Dumbfounded, I stare at her. “Holy fuck.” Looking miserable, she nods again. She tries to pull away but I don’t let her. I put my arms around her and squeeze. She resists for what feels like forever, stiff and uncomfortable in my arms, but then slowly she gives in. She melts against me with a sigh, tucks her face into the space between my neck and shoulder, and winds her arms around my waist. We stand like that for a while, not talking, feeling the chaotic beating of each other’s hearts. Her hair smells like sunshine. She’s soft and warm against me, lush and feminine. My dick is still wrestling for control with my brain, which is in a state of shock and is just sitting there lifelessly inside my skull like a big lump of cheese. And suddenly I realize what a gift I’m being offered. I can never right the wrongs of the past, no matter how desperately I might want to. But maybe those wrongs aren’t the end of the story. Maybe they’re only a new beginning. If I’m going to do good by her, this is a fucking fantastic place to start. My voice gruff, I say, “I’m in.” She pulls away and looks at me, a little furrow between her brows. “What?” “I said I’m in. Fuck it. If I can make you fall in love with me once, I can make you fall in love with me again and again. Every day if I have to.” Grace blanches. “The Egosaurus rides again. I’m not in love with you!” “But you will be,” I vow, looking at her dead-on. “Because I’m not gonna leave you any other choice.” I plunge my hands into her hair, grip her head, pull her toward me, and fit my mouth against hers. It’s like the Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve and Christmas morning, all rolled into one. Heat. Color. Noise. Fireworks behind my eyes. She moans into my mouth, digs her nails into my back, arches against me. I moan, too, fucking her luscious mouth with my tongue, one hand behind her neck and the other roaming all over her body, learning her shape, the dip of her waist, the full, tight curve of her ass. It’s greedy. It’s scorching. It’s everything. If there were a Guinness World Record for the most amazing, mind-blowing, cock-stiffening, heart-pounding, panty-melting, burn-down-the-house kiss, we’d win that motherfucker hands down. We’re both breathing hard, desperate, mindless, lost. The kiss goes on and on, until I’m drunk on her. I’m flying. I’m melting. I’m— Someone loudly clears his throat. Stunned and reeling, Grace and I break apart. Nico stands in the kitchen doorway with his hands on his hips, grinning like an idiot. “Hiya, kids,” he drawls. “What’re you two squirrels up to?” Flushed and trembling, Grace lifts a hand to her lips. She lets out a short, astonished laugh and cuts her gaze to me. I can’t talk either. My mouth can’t form any coherent words. I just stand there, dumb as a rock, my mind blank, my shorts tented, staring at Grace like I’ve spent my entire life up to this point living in a dark cave, surviving on worms and insects, and she just walked in with candles and flowers and a big fucking steak on a hot plate. “Uhh . . .” Nico bursts out laughing. “I’ll just go see what Kat’s up to.” Grace’s voice is high and shaky. She bolts from the room. “Just wanted to let you know a few people are starting to show up.” Nico glances at the front of my shorts and chuckles. “So, uh, you might want to pull yourself together, brother.” Shaken to my core, I sag against the counter, gripping it hard for support, and let out a ragged breath. “Jesus. Is that what it’s like for you with Kat? That feeling like you’re . . .” “Free-falling?” Nico supplies when I can’t find the right word. “High flying? Completely out of control?” When I look up at him, he nods. “Yeah, brother. It is. At the beginning. And then it gets so much deeper and so much better, there aren’t any words for it at all.” His eyes—bright, cobalt-blue eyes that made him famous—pierce me. “But be careful. Because once you get on that speeding train, you can’t get off. Even if it jumps the tracks, crashes into a nuclear power plant, and burns the whole world to the ground.” He gives me one long, last look and then turns around and leaves. From somewhere very far off, I hear the sound of my demon laughing.

We are so thrilled to reveal the outstanding cover of Carrie Ann Ryan's FRACTURED SILENCE today! Check it out below and find out more about this fifth book in her Talon Pack series!


Fractured Silence (1)

About FRACTURED SILENCE

The Talon Pack continues with a dark secret that could shatter the future of the Packs, or save them all.
Parker Jamenson is the son of three Packs, the sole mediator between every Pack in the United States and Europe, and…he’s dying. He knows he doesn’t have much left in him and is in desperate need of a mate. But with the new and unyielding changes thanks to the Moon Goddess, he might not have as much time as he thinks.
Brandon Brentwood is the Omega of the Talon Pack and the youngest of his family. He’s not only one of the famed triplets; he’s also the most secretive. There’s a good reason for that, however, and when a shocking revelation meshes the past and present in a very unexpected way, he’ll look to not only Parker but also a disgraced human to save them all.
Avery Montag knows she’s the daughter of a traitor and doesn’t have much to give the wolves in the way of atonement. But she’ll do everything she can to pay for her father’s sins and find a way to end the war between the humans and the wolves.
When the three turn to each other in a time of unrest and for vastly different reasons, temptation burns and seduction beckons. Only, the past, present, and future are never as solid as they seem, and the path the trio thought to travel may just vanish before they’re ready.

Blog Tour: Tell Me a Lie | CJ Carver

05:00 Daniel Riding 0 Comments

Hello folks, I do hope you are all well. I have an excellent post today as part of my stop on the official blog tour for CJ Carver's latest book 'Tell Me a Lie'. She tells us all about her perspective on the two sides of a writer and how to stay sane during the writing process. It is a wonderful read, so I recommend that you make yourself a brew, get comfy and enjoy. 


The Two Sides of a Writer.  Living with a dual personality and keeping your writer’s temperament sane.

A lot of people don’t realise that us writers are normal people.  Well, most of the time anyway.

Firstly, “poetic license” doesn’t mean the writer chooses to ignore every moral code and behave how they like.  Yes, sometimes we’re vague and woolly to others when part of our mind is taken up with a particularly tricky plot problem, but aside from that we’re perfectly normal.  At least I think so, and since my partner hasn’t yet run for the door, screaming…

I see the two sides of the writer as the adult and the child.  Or the conscious and unconscious.

One side is discriminating, self-controlled and objective.  The other is emotional, excitable and unconstrained.

To have both sides working together, side by side, is the ultimate objective.  It’s when a new plot twist comes seemingly out of nowhere, that is absolutely perfect and drives the book forward in a way I haven’t thought of before, when I know both sides are in synch.

At such moments, when the conscious and unconscious are working in harmony, I know I have to keep writing until I drop.

I find it’s vital not to get up and rush around first thing in the morning.  I like to lie quite still and allow the unconscious side to wake up slowly.  I let my work flow through my mind without judging or criticizing.  When I’ve woken up enough to make a handful of notes (always keep a pen and pad handy by the bed!) then I allow the other side their time.  This involves thinking about everyday life - shopping, filling in my tax return, paying bills - all the practical stuff my creative side would prefer to ignore if I let it.

A lot of writers suffer from procrastination when their book isn’t flowing, and I’m no exception.  If I’m not careful, the child side will have its way, telling me it’s a nice day for a walk, for another cup of tea, toast, oooh let’s write another email, Tweet, have a look at Facebook, and before I know it half the day has gone.

The adult side really has to take control at this point, or no writing would get done AT ALL.
The adult side, which I also call the conscious, however, has to take a back seat during the first draft.  This is when the child, my unconscious, needs to be let off its leash and given free rein with no critic watching.

But it is possible to train them to work together.  It takes a little time but it’s worth it because that’s when the work flows and, even better, you know what you’re writing is using every aspect of your abilities.
