Alyce Simpson and Born to Sin

Hi all!!

Please help me welcome Author Alyce Simpson to my blog today!




Synopsis:

HAMISH
 
I was born to an alcoholic mother and alcoholic, drug dealing father. Not a good start to life for a young boy. I was born to sin.
I've lied, cheated, assaulted, been an adulterer and stolen. It's how one survives the 'hood'. I have a reputation for being the 'bad boy', the fuck 'em and leave 'em type. I have never spent the night with a woman and I have never brought a woman home. We 'play' at her place and as soon as I'm done, I leave.
After fleeing my home at the age of thirteen and living on the streets - an option I found better than being with my parents, my life is turned around by an elderly lady.
I educate myself, become an award winning chef and return to the 'hood where I rent an apartment. I love and care about no-one and nothing except my Harley Motorcycle. It's here I met Jonesy and he takes my life in a whole new direction. Along with Wade, a fellow chef and the only person I can trust, the pair teach me how to love. Not only myself, but others.
 


BLOSSOM
 
I'm a wealthy Restaurateur thanks to an inheritance I received when my father passed.
I live in a penthouse apartment in the 'rich' part of the city.
Being pampered and spoiled all my life has turned me into a woman who sees something she wants and, like a dog with a bone, I won't let go until it's mine. I'm a winner. I ALWAYS win.
I don't have relationships with men. One night stands suit me just fine. I can't trust it's me they want and not my money.
I meet Hamish by chance when I'm on the hunt for a new Head Chef. He treats me like I'm not worth a second thought. I've never been treated this way and I decide at that moment, I will make Hamish mine.
 
Hamish has no interest in the pampered Blossom but for some reason she gets under his skin.
Then, something happens that makes him realize, he has fallen in love. Will it be too late? Will tragedy strike before he can hold her in his arms and confess his true feelings?



Excerpt:

“Shit, that was good.” Caroline sighs as I pull out of her and roll over. “Can we go out? Will you stay the night?”
“Nope. Gotta work.” I slide off the bed and pad to the bathroom across the hall. It’s as bad as the rest of Caroline’s apartment. Broken and cracked tiles, years of filth discoloring the grout, the bathtub so stained I wouldn’t even think to lower my ass onto the grime. Peeling paint like the other rooms, torn vinyl on the floors. Not unlike my place two blocks away. Well, I at least keep my place clean.
Most of the apartment blocks in the ’hood are run down, squalid hovels. The apartments haven’t seen maintenance in years because, unless you live in the ’hood, you don’t come here. Crimes are committed every hour, screaming, gun shots, rats in the filth ridden streets. It’s all a common sight to us natives of the area. It’s why I want to get out of here. Why I’m desperate to live somewhere decent with decent people. I’ve tried to rent in an area closer to work. A nice ‘burb close to the city. The realtors take one look at my references, note where I’ve been living and tell me the place is taken. It doesn’t matter that I clean up nice before I go and see them. It doesn’t matter that I’ve managed to get myself an education and have been working as a chef at a prestigious city restaurant. Nope, once a ’hood boy, always a ’hood boy as far as they’re concerned. It is impossible to rid myself of the stigma. Once I would have worn it as a badge of honor, now I want something better.
I dispose of the condom and return to the bedroom.
Caroline is stretched out on the bed like a contented cat. Fuck, she’s got a gorgeous body.
“Why won’t you stay? Even when you don’t have to work, you won’t stay.”
I hate the whining that has been happening lately. “Babe, I’ve told you. I don’t stay anywhere except my own bed in my own apartment. Alone.”
She leans up on her elbow. “We’ve been going out for almost a month and all you’ve done is text me and order me to meet you here so you can make love to me.”
I raise my hands in front of my still naked body. My dick is now flaccid, soft. Totally turned off with her whining. “How long have you lived in this neighborhood?” I watch her frown while she wonders why I’ve asked a question I already know the answer to.
“Nine years.”
“You know my reputation?”
She lowers her eyes. “Yes.”
“And?”
“You fuck ’em and leave ’em.”
“So, why do you ask if I’m staying the night?”

Reviews

**I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review*
I am in love with Hamish! He has become my new book boyfriend! I licked him so that makes him mine right?
This story had me in so many different emotions. Sometimes when reading I actually pictured my own husband who grew up in the "hood". I married my own real life bad boy "Hamish".
A.L kept me guessing. She also made those scenes with Blossom HOT.
This was my first read for 2016 and I know I will be reading it again and again! This will be my " I have nothing to read and I want something sweet, hot, sexy and wonderful" to read again book.
For a first book I definitely loved it. Well done A.L
 
**I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review*
This is AL Simpson's first book. Wow what a great first book. She will be on my favorite authors list from now on.
This is a romance with a few twist but truly a sweet hot hot romance I would definitely recommend this book to others.
Sweet and Hot

Author Ross S. Simon

Hi all!

Please help me welcome Author Ross S. Simon to my blog today!



Author Bio and Interview:

ROSS S. SIMON was born Sam Ridings in La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1979; and spent the bulk of his childhood in Winona, Minnesota, before moving at age nine to Santa Cruz, California, where he still lives today.  He graduated from Soquel High School in 1997, and from Cabrillo College in 2006, the latter with an Associated Arts degree in Basic Liberal Arts.  In addition to Arthur O' The Bower, Mr. Simon is the author of two previous horror works, The Snow, published by Eternal Press in 2012; and Red Dahlia, published by Damnation Books in 2013.  His hobbies include pinball and board gaming, collecting pop memorabilia, and reading very interesting novels of various genres.

Tell me a bit about yourself:
I’m kind of a shy, stay-at-home type, mostly, with tentative formal education, but I have the love of an extended family, and am more optimistic than most.


What genre to you personally read?
Most any genre; science-fiction, horror, classics, mystery maybe, but then, those are only the genres that I like.  Romance isn’t on my list.


What sparked your passion for books and the art of a good story?
No one’s passion for books is ever really sparked; I just learned to read at a very early age.  At a later age than that, I figured I could write novels just as well as, perhaps even better than, anyone I’d seen in the business.


Is there a message in your book that you want readers to grasp?
Not so much in “Arthur O’ The Bower” is there any real message, but I might like to say that the point I basically aimed to make in both of my previous horror novels, “The Snow” and “Red Dahlia,” is that true evil does whatever it pleases, against whomever—AND whatever—it pleases, whenever it pleases.  “Arthur” sort of carries on that purpose, but like I say, not so much.


What has been your best moment as a writer?
Getting published for the first time; what the heck else?


Do you see yourself in any of your characters?
I admit that the protagonist of my breakout horror work, “The Snow,” Donald Holly, bears a good bit of autobiographical composition.  He’s a lonesome Everyman who’s basically afraid as hell to commit to real friends, which makes his possession by Loki all the scarier.


What does your workspace look like?
Messy, as is to be expected.  There’s a bunch of scattered papers to the left-hand of my laptop, which I suppose I should get in order sometime.  Also there’s a bit of dust on the desk I use.


What do you do when you’re not writing?
Basically, I read, listen to music, play games, or watch DVDs, and that’s when I’m at home.


Did you have a moment when you realized you were meant to be a writer?
Not one specific moment, but it slowly came to me over an extended time period back in my adolescence that I might enjoy writing as a hobby, maybe even as a career.

After this book, what is next?

I’m planning to follow up with a rather grim work called “The Basilisk’s Mirror,” about a super-smart suicide machine.





THE SNOW:
After hints throughout history of an apparent monstrous spirit possessing ordinary men, one such man is clearly possessed by what he later realizes is the Nordic mischief god Loki, “befriending” him against his will to create death and destruction in small-town northern Minnesota in the dead of winter.




RED DAHLIA:
A British RN officer retires from the First World War to Raj India, meets and marries a beautiful Hindu priestess, and they have a darling baby daughter...who, horrifyingly, is found according to the true prophecy of a holy man to be the incarnation of Kali-Ma, the Blood Goddess, and aims to immolate the earth in an immense orgy of blood and fire.

Cover coming soon...

ARTHUR O' THE BOWER:
A wing of the British Secret Service dealing with paranormal occurrences solicits the aid of a reluctant Scottish laborer who, ironically, has the supernatural means to fight an arcane wind demon, sung centuries before in a grim children's rime, who is terrorizing Scotland and seeks to bring first to their graves the ones who are chosen by faith to destroy him.




OK, here are the two short stories I've self-published on Amazon Kindle Unlimited:
VEIN TRANSPLANT, about a radical new leprosy strain that destroys all bodily matter except the circulatory system, and the unfortunate love triangle that it gets caught up in with its scientist discoverer...and a jealous inferior worker.




BY A BLOODY HEAD, about three freeloading English ironworkers who bet one year in the Kentucky Derby, a bit too successfully, on a team of four jockeys who turn out to be something more than they seem...in particular according to the Book of Revelations.



SPECIAL NOTE: Hurry!  Get these while you still can...they'll only be available for about another month.

Alyce Simpson & Born to Sin

Hi all!

I would like to welcome Alyce Simpson to my blog today! Today is a big day for her. She is revealing the cover to her book and you all get to see it right here!




Synopsis:

HAMISH

I was born to an alcoholic mother and alcoholic, drug dealing father. Not a good start to life for a young boy. I was "Born to Sin".
I've lied, cheated, assaulted, been an adulterer and stolen. All before the age of thirteen. It's how one survives the 'hood'.
I have a reputation for being the 'bad boy', the fuck 'em and leave 'em type. I have never spent the night with a woman and I have never brought a woman home. We 'play' at her place and as soon as I'm done, I leave.
After fleeing my home at the age of thirteen and living on the streets - an option I found better than being with my parents, my life is turned around by an elderly lady.
I educate myself, become an award winning chef and return to the 'hood where I rent an apartment. I love and care about no-one and nothing except my Harley Motorcycle. Then, I meet Jonesy and he takes my life in a whole new direction. Along with Wade, a fellow chef and the only person I can trust, the pair teach me how to love. Not only myself, but others.

BLOSSOM

I'm a wealthy Restaurateur thanks to an inheritance I received when my father passed.

Hamish has no interest in the pampered Blossom but for some reason she gets under his skin.
Then, something happens that makes him realize, he has fallen in love. Will it be too late? Will tragedy strike before he can hold her in his arms and confess his true feelings?

Excerpt:
Chapter One
HAMISH
“Hamish, for the love of God, get your fingers out and fuck me,” Caroline cries as I bring her to the edge.
Performing moves that would have made an acrobat proud, I grab a condom from the nightstand and rip it open with my teeth. The whole time I’m finger fucking her. Enough to keep her wet but not enough to have her come.
I withdraw my fingers from her pussy, lick the sweet juices dripping from my fingers and sheath myself.
After flipping her onto her belly and pulling her up onto all fours, I slam into her cunt. She squeals as I penetrate her with an almighty thrust. She likes it rough which is good, I’ve never been gentle. Girls know what to expect from the bad boy chef when they join me in bed. Let’s get something else clear. I fuck. I don’t make love.
Her hands fist in the sheets as I push her toward that worshipped edge.
“Fuck I’m coming.” My dick is screaming for release. My balls are tucked up tight. I grip her hips and with two more almighty thrusts, we fall over the edge together. Hot cum fills my condom.
“Shit, that was good.” Caroline sighs as I pull out of her and roll over. “Can we go out? Will you stay the night?”
“Nope. Gotta work.” I slide off the bed and pad to the bathroom across the hall. It’s as bad as the rest of Caroline’s apartment. Broken and cracked tiles, years of filth discolor the grout, the bathtub so stained I wouldn’t even think to lower my ass onto the grime. Peeling paint like the other rooms, torn vinyl on the floors. Not unlike my place two blocks away.
Most of the apartment blocks in the ’hood are run down, squalid hovels. The apartments haven’t seen maintenance in years because, unless you live in the ’hood, you don’t come here. Crimes are committed every hour, screaming, gun shots, rats in the filth ridden streets. It’s all a common sight to us natives of the area. It’s why I want to get out of here. Why I’m desperate to live somewhere decent with decent people. I’ve tried to rent in an area closer to work. A nice ‘burb close to the city. The realtors take one look at my references, note where I’ve been living and tell me the place is taken. It doesn’t matter that I clean up nice before I go and see them. It doesn’t matter that I’ve managed to get myself an education and have been working as a chef at a prestigious city restaurant. Nope, once a ’hood boy, always a ’hood boy as far as they’re concerned.

I am so excited about this book. I even have it translated into Portuguese as my 'cousin' doesn't speak English and I'd like her to be able to enjoy it too! Here is the cover:



Synopsis:

A young woman from Rio de Janiero, Brazil wakes up in a mausoleum to find herself all alone with no memory. When the vampire Thomas rescues her, he treats her like the child he never had. However, when Ranato comes into Christiane’s life, she knows she’s in love and leaves Thomas. Is Ranato all that he seems to be or does he have a more sinister plan for her? Will other forces help her or work against her?  Will she be able to stay alive and find true happiness? Do you like Egyptian mythology? Then this book is for you.

You can find me at:

Excerpt:


Lester's Diner...
A lone biker, on a Harley-Davidson Fatboy, roars into a parking lot of a diner. The diner's neon sign is sputtering with sparks from the cracks. The sign says Lester's Diner.
The biker pulls into a spot. The bike stops. The biker kicks out the kickstand. The biker is wearing a pink and purple leather outfit. Her helmet is pink with purple ghost flames. On her back she carries a pink Eastsport backpack.
She disembarks the bike. The biker removes her helmet. She runs a hand through her pink hair. Her hair is cut in a short bob. Sweat runs down her forehead.
There is a scar running across the bridge of her nose. She sighs. The sun sets in the distance. I hope Elise is here.
The pink haired biker heads on into the diner. She shakes her head. With helmet in hand, the biker walks up to the counter.
A young black woman, wearing a blue and black polo over tan pants, greets her. The young woman's name tag says LaShondra. "How many?" She has a smile on her face.


"Two. I have a friend meeting me here."
LaShondra grabs two menus. She directs the biker to the right side of the dining room. LaShondra looks at the pink haired biker. "Table or booth?"
"Booth, please."
LaShondra leads her to a booth along a glass partition near the back of the room. The biker sits her helmet down along with her backpack on one of the benches. She sits down next to them. LaShondra sets a menu on each side of the table.
"Your waiter will be with you shortly."
"Thank you."
The biker begins to scan the crowd within the diner. She notices the variety of denizens in the diner. The biker chuckles. "Hopefully there's no trouble."
She opens her backpack to check her gear. Inside the backpack are two custom ivory handled .45 caliber pistols. Each is loaded and ready to go in case of trouble. Stamped into the bottom of each is one letter. The letter L is on one for lycanthropes. The letter V is on the other for vampires.
Each is loaded with specialized bullets as well. The bullets for lycanthropes are tipped in silver. While the bullets for vampires are tipped in white oak ash. The bullets are specially made for her.
She turns to her left to see a young curly brunette enter the diner. She is wearing a white lab coat over a blue shirt and jeans.
LaShondra, the host, leads the young woman over towards the biker. The biker waves her hand to notify her friend. She gets up as the host brings the young brunette forth.
"Elise, you made it." The biker hugs Elise.
"Wouldn't miss it, Des. Like the new look." Elise and Destiny sit down. "When did you get back in town?"
"Just now. Called you on the way in."
"So, what brought you back?" Elise asks. "It's been years since I've seen you."
"Chris brought me back." Destiny admits. "Been tracking him since his mind was torn apart."
The waiter comes up to their table. He is dressed just like LaShondra. In his hand are a pencil and an order pad.
"What can I get you ladies to drink?"
"I'll take a coffee." Elise says.
"Diet Coke for me." Destiny replies.
After jotting it down. He looks up. "Are you ready to order?"
"Give us a few moments." Destiny says.
"All right. Be right back with those drinks."
The waiter, then, walks away. Destiny watches as he strolls away. She licks her lips. "Um. Scrumptious."
"Destiny!" Elise says. "You're married!"
"Really?" Destiny retorts. "Sure doesn't feel like it."
Destiny breaks down and sobs. Elise pats her shoulder from across the table. "Look, I'm not sure I can help. I don't know what to do."
"I don't either." Destiny admits. "I lost track of Christopher a month ago. I thought he might return here. So I came here and sought you out hoping that you could help."
"If he came back here..." Elise rubs her chin. "...he'd have to check in with an Alpha. Not sure that he'd get a warm reception, though. He and Michel have some bad blood between them."
"I know." Destiny sighs. Elise and Destiny, then, turn their heads towards the front of the diner. There is a loud argument coming from there.
Elise rolls her eyes. "Great."
Destiny removes the two custom pistols from her backpack. She holsters them into pockets on her custom biker outfit. The two ladies start to head towards the front of the diner. They are not pleased.
As they near the front, Destiny and Elise can hear a person growling and another hissing. Destiny removes her pistols. She pulls the hammers back to arms them.
Destiny and Elise see the two arguing patrons. One patron is pale skinned. He is wearing a dark suit with a white shirt and matching tie. His hair is dark brown and slicked back. This patron is hissing.
The other patron has thick bushy brown hair with mutton chops. He is wearing a blue flannel shirt and jeans. This patron, who is growling, stands beside the table where his family is sitting.
"Cool it." Destiny says as she aims the pistols at the two arguing patrons. "Go back to your party." Both the vampire and the lycan back away from one another.
"Fine. I don't want to be any closer to this dog than I have to be." The vampire says. He turns and heads back towards his party. Others in his party sit while sipping on their drinks. Elise holds the lycan, who is growling.
Destiny holsters one pistol with the other still pointing at the lycan. He puts his hands in the air. "Whoa, kiddo. Please put the guns away. There is no need for it."
"What's going on?" Elise asks. "Why would you go and rile up a Sangre, Tom?"
"Not intentional. I promise." Tom tells them. "I just came here to have dinner with Melanie and Marissa."
Destiny holsters the remaining pistol. She, then, runs the back of her neck. "What I can't understand from this is his motivation? Why stir trouble now?"
"Little lady, I couldn't tell you." Tom says. "Now do you two mind. I would like to get back to my dinner."
"Of course. Nice to see you again, Tom. Melanie. Marissa." Elise says. She leads Destiny back towards their table.
"Elise, what's going on?" Destiny asks.
"I don't know, Des." Elise replies. They sit down at their table. "I am going to have to call my contacts. You might want to call on Brandon."
"You think he can help?"
"He might know something we don't."
"You make a very good point." Destiny gulps as the waiter returns with their drinks. "Maybe he'll have some word on Chris."
"Who knows, Des." Elise stirs some creamer and sugar into her coffee. "Anything's possible."

"True." Destiny runs a hand through her hair. "Very true."

Brandi Kennedy & More Than Friends release

Hi all!

I'd like to rewelcome Author Brandi Kennedy to my blog today as she's got big news!


Brandi Kennedy is a romance novelist who is finally living her childhood career dream. As a child, books were her world, and through adulthood, that love of words has never changed. Brandi is now a contemporary romance novelist and poet with a deep love of writing and a curiously adventurous desire to someday write in several other genres.

A woman of varied interest, Brandi loves photography, music of all kinds, knitting, crocheting, and of course, mothering her two young daughters. Currently, she finds her home in the heart of Knoxville, Tennessee, among the mountains and the members of her extended family, where she spends her days at the computer -- bringing fresh and incredibly real characters to life.

AND now for the news!

 November 10th is coming, and that means release day is coming! More Than Friends (the fourth book in the Kingsley Series) is now well into the editing process, and is on track for a great release day! I'm so excited!

More Than Friends is the fourth book in the Kingsley Series:
The first book was Fat Chance.
The second book was Prescription for Love
The third book was Wrestling Harmony

Fourth book synopsis:

Michael Kingsley is a broken man. How could he not be, when the wife he thought he’d love forever, the one he thought would love himforever, just picked up and left him with no explanation? It took him a while, but he’s finally putting his life back together. He’s doing his job, he’s paying his bills – he’s even getting back into his old hobbies.

He’s finally doing alright again … mostly. And maybe he doesdrink too much, but at least he’s finally stopped sleeping around. Now he’s settled on one woman, a curvaceous and flirtatious bartender who never misses an opportunity to warm his bed.

But when Michael’s mother ends up in the hospital, it’s his best friend Renee who stays by his side, and he begins to see her in a whole new way. But when they take a step beyond the boundaries of friendship that cannot be undone, what will happen to their relationship? Will they find something more, something neither of them even realized was there? Or will the fear of changing – and maybe losing – their friendship, be the thing that ends it all?



  6.) With More Than Friends almost ready to go live, I've been thinking about my next major focus project. I'm currently working actively on several different projects, but I do usually have one major focus, so what's my next major focus? Well, I looked back on the feedback I'm getting from my readers, and it looks like my next most wanted project is ... *drum roll please * ... Selkie II!

Links:

Sounds great! Can't wait to read More Than Friends and the new Selkie II! Please check out her links and stalk her! She loved to hear from her readers so sign up for her newsletter too!

The Kingsley Series is a series of stand-alone contemporary women’s fiction romance novels, each connected to the next by the bonds of family. Each book in this series follows the personal journey of one of the Kingsley couples – however, each story is continued and updated in the following book. These books can be read in any order, but are best enjoyed in order of publication. This series contains mild sexual content.
 
Prescription For Love is the second book in the series:
 
Cameron Kingsley is jaded; a traumatic event from her past is still haunting her, and even running her own wedding planning business isn’t enough to make her believe in love that lasts. She spends her days choosing flowers and china settings with serial brides who marry serial grooms, and she spends her evenings locked in a cycle of flashbacks and panic attacks.
 
But a family wedding changes everything; a request from her brother’s fiancĂ© sends Cameron to the office of sexy Mackenzie Caswell, who might be just the man to help her see things in a new light.
 
Mac is a widower and a single dad who still treasures the memory of his deceased wife and loves nothing more than his young son. A man with heavy baggage, he’s been walked away from more times than he cares to count, and he’s ready to try one more time. But who is the one with the heavier burden – Cameron, or Mac? And will they be able to help each other shoulder the weight of moving on?

Sabrina Samples

Hi all!

I wanted to introduce you to Sabrina Samples who is currently represented by Immoral Publishing. Here are the three books she has out. Check the bottom for her newest release.

Author Bio
Sabrina Samples was born and raised in Cleveland Ohio. Even at a young age she always loved writing. She would write poetry and short stories. It wasn’t until one of her teachers submitted a poem of hers to a poetry company that she realized she wanted to write more for people to see. From that point of inspiration, she has been constantly writing. Sabrina finds motivation and desire to write in the need to leave something behind for those who come after her time. When Sabrina is not busy working on her writing she enjoys playing Dungeons & Dragons, spending time with her husband and daughter.




Blurb for Pieces of my Soul... Love was fleeting... Just a whim... I had lots of fun... I cried tears... Some of joy... Others of sorrow... Then he came into my life... All was erased... I know now that I have found the one to piece back together my once broken soul.





The blurb for Shattered... She thought suicide was the only way out. She struggled with every breath, every smile and every word she spoke. Nothing seemed to fix the overwhelming need to take the blade to her skin. Let yourself be transported into the author’s shoes. Feel the pain and struggles as she does. Rejoice and celebrate as she overcomes those struggles and hardships.





The blurb for Wicked Souls... Spencer Bishop’s past was nothing more than a falsified case of fake memories. Every birthday, holiday, and special moment was changed in order to protect her from evil. Aiden, the lover who was erased with her other memories, came back into her life and caused her to question reality and figure out who she was. After an act of bravery, Spencer was granted her memories back. Aiden, her true love and the Angel’s in Heaven desired for her to see her true destiny and fight evil. Can Spencer defeat the evil before it destroys her and Heaven?

Coming Soon

Hidden Secrets (Book two of the Wicked Souls Saga) Recent actions caused all to be wary of everyone else’s loyalty and trust, including Spencer’s. Once believed to be a close knit group is now feared to contain a spy. With an edginess surrounding her new family in Heaven along with a collision course with her former family now living in Hell destined to happen. Will Spencer become Heaven’s victorious General or known as the killer of all angels when she takes the mantle in Hell?

Wish You Were Here (Part of the Fragmented Tears Poetry Collection) I have spent so many years whispering words to the Heavens. To my father who was taken too soon. I have spent every day since his death wishing he could hear my words to him. This book holds all the words never spoken and all the memories he never got to be part of. All my words, my tears, and my memories are being sent up to Heaven one final time for him to hear.
