~~*~~


Blurb:
Tristan Bailey is a man who never takes no for an answer in anything he does or wants. Life treats him good as the CEO of his own airline, and one of New York's finest bachelors. Men and women alike fall at his feet, doors opens to him without complaint. There isn't much he desires. Until he lays eyes on Joshua Malone that is.

Death has become a living nightmare for Joshua Malone. No matter what he does a past riveted with pain and destruction follows him, and forces him to make life decisions he would rather not. Josh never wanted to be reminded of the heartache that loving someone could bring, but he finds himself struggling to deny Tristan's advances.

Two different worlds collide in a heated meeting of longing and lust. Can the inner fears of one be laid to rest by the new found love for the other, or will they both be denied?





I shall also be giving away ebook copies of the following to three more lucky winners:



Blurb:
Death is her destiny. But she has other things in mind.

Lia Starr’s life isn’t a fairytale. It’s a reality overflowing with scary monsters, death, and betrayal—a past she left behind when she entered her new foster home. Now, with a loving family, a sister she’s always craved, and relief from the gruesome corpses that tormented her as a child, she’s finally content. Until a freak accident changes everything.

The monsters are back, and their mission is simple: drag Lia straight to their murky hell. When Aiden, an apparition, appears to Lia, she has hope once again. Because Aiden can cross the veil between the spirit world and the earthly dimension, physically fighting off the monsters and sending them back. With Aiden’s determination to keep her safe and his absorbing blue eyes, Lia can’t help falling in love with him. But who is he, and what does he really want? As Lia and Aiden’s relationship deepens, so does the mystery surrounding him.

Once Lia finds out Aiden has traded his soul to save her, she enters the darker dimension, a dimension where nightmares are reality, ready to kick some serious butt. But surrounded by twenty-eight mutilated monsters and a deranged cult leader intent on bringing his dark world to the surface, isn’t what Lia expects. And even worse, she must face her traumatic past in order to destroy them. If she fails, not only will she lose the guy she loves and face certain death, but she will also risk the one thing she can’t afford to lose: her eternal soul.



Blurb:
Years have passed since she told him no…

Rebecca Howland has long since given up the life of a libertine. Carnal indulgence and erotic adventures are over. She convinces herself she can live out the rest of her life working in her family’s Apothecary and learn to accept her lover’s dismissal. She can live a quiet, peaceful existence. Or so she thought. But when she’s unwillingly caught up in a past lover’s life, she becomes a pawn between two bitter enemies and finds herself accused of murder—blackmailed and forced to ruin a man she once loved. Now there’s only one man she can turn to. The one man she left behind.

This time he will demand her submission…

Stephen Drake lost Rebecca long ago. Back then he was too young to keep a woman like her. Now, a spy for the Crown, he has power, funds, a title, and he’s been assigned to follow Rebecca. But thoughts of his mission fade to the background as passion flares and Rebecca flames his dominant side— a darkly erotic side he’s fought to keep hidden, one that she enjoys. Determined to protect her, Stephen takes her into hiding where they spend the nights entwined in passion. But as danger surrounds them, the two lovers must face secrets that could destroy them and the fragile trust they’ve built.




Blurb:
Lark Singer’s relationship with her mother is prickly to say the least. As she enters a musical competition that could launch her career, Lark also searches for answers her mother would rather keep hidden. 

Throw into the mix the fact her best friend Bean has been acting strangely, and Lark finds herself launched into uncharted territory. 

Will her quest for answers sabotage her musical aspirations?

Author Take Over! (SoP Special)


Ashley Suzanne has been writing as long as she can remember. As a youngster, she was always creating stories and talking to her imaginary friends. Thankfully, her parents also carried this love of fiction, and helped her grow into the writer she is today. 

Ashley is a bestselling author and spends equal amounts of time writing and reading. Being the true book whore she is, Ashley would rather dive into a good book before going out of her house. Giving up her career in Real Estate, Ashley has officially moved to hermit status.

When Ashley isn't coming up with her next story, you'll most likely find her on the couch with a kindle in her hand (probably watching some crappy reality show while , annoying her husband by telling him all about her new book boyfriend or spending quality time with her two gremlins ... Sorry, I mean adorable children.




*****


Hey guys!! My name's Ashley Suzanne and I'm gonna take you through a quick ride of my currently published New Adult novels!!!

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away... well, it's not really far, far away. It's right up the road from me in Ann Arbor, Michigan (GO BLUE). Okay... where was I? Oh, yeah, I remember. Once upon a time, there were a group of friends...


Mira fell hard core in love with Danny during their freshman year of college. The two were inseparable, except for when Mira moved in with her best friend Kylee and Danny was with his childhood partner in crime, Skylar. College flew by, and as the group was getting ready to embark on the new path their lives were going, tragedy hit and knocked everyone on their asses. Luckily, with the three remaining friends, and a new edition (Jacoby Roberts), the bonds that were tested to the extreme persevere.

Mirage, Book one in The Destined Series, was my debut novel and might have coined me the nickname of "Queen of MindFuck". I wear that title with pride and these characters all mean so much to me. Without them, I would have never made it to where I am today. I owe them everything.

You can CLICK HERE to watch the trailer for The Destined Series.

Shades of Pink



October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last year, the Shades of Pink event raised over $10,000 through more than 1300 donations! This year, 22 authors have allied for one cause: fundraising for research. Their gift to everyone who donates? A romance anthology titled Shades of Pink (vol 2). 

The suggested donation is $5. All proceeds go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Whichever amount you decide to donate, you have our gratitude, and our words. The fundraiser is now started and will run until mid-November. 

For more information go to Kallysten's Blog



As part of the Shades of Pink promo I was lucky enough to steal Amanda, the main character of my book, Gabriel's Rose - which is included in the anthology - away for a quick chat!


Amara:
Hello beautiful, and thank you for joining us today. I am so pleased that you agreed to come in and share your story, I really appreciate it. In your own time, please.


Amanda:
It’s good to be here, and I’d like to help with breast cancer awareness in any way I can, even if that means something as simple as sharing my story. I was twenty eight years old when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. In the time leading up to this I was never once ill, nor was I sore. There was never any reason for me to worry about the big C. I mean, I was too young to be diagnosed, or so I thought. One day while in the shower I noticed a discharge coming from my right nipple. My stomach sank. At first I thought it was breast-milk and worried I had gotten pregnant without knowing, then I realised that the color and substance was all wrong. I contacted my doctor immediately and she brought me in for some tests which lead to a mammogram, and finally an ultrasound.


Amara:
I can't even begin to imagine how hard that was for you. How did you cope with it all?


Amanda:
At first I didn't! Waiting for the results had been torture, and when they finally came in I was sitting at home alone. I wanted to run and hide. Fear assailed me as I listened to the doctor speak, and the second I heard the words breast cancer, my world tilted. I was devastated. I remember feeling cold and numb, denial bombarded me, and I was at a loss as to what to do. I was quickly scheduled in for emergency surgery, they removed a tumour of about four millimetres in size. In addition, there were blockages in several ducts, so I decided to have a full mastectomy of my right breast. At the time I was too shocked to think straight and refused the breast reconstruction. I always regret doing that.


Amara:
Do you mind me asking why you refused it?


Amanda:
To be honest, I wasn't thinking straight. My head was all over the place, and the only thing I could think was; I don't want any of those huge fake boobs. I was picturing playgirls with hard weird chests, not my own smaller soft breasts. It sounds weird, but it was all I could think. And as i said i regretted my decision. For months I found it difficult to expose my breast to anyone, even my best friend, and nurse, Aisha. I hated looking at myself, seeing that scar and knowing that I would never be whole again. And to top it all off my boyfriend of five years left me, he said he couldn’t cope. The asshat! At first I hated him, but then I couldn’t seem to blame him for getting rid of me. I was no longer the woman he loved.

I was offered counselling to help me deal with my newfound body image issues, yet I never left my sessions feeling any better about my appearance. My mood changed, I had long periods of feeling low, my personality and image changed drastically. So much so that I never really celebrated the day I was told I was in remission. The months past in a blur of self-hate and loathing. My friends done everything in their power to help me deal with it all. It was difficult, but gradually I began to feel a little better about myself. It was around this time that Aisha discovered the bucket list I had wrote in a moment of madness. I needed to do something to help myself heal emotionally, so following her constant harassment I decided to go ahead with the list and try to live life to the fullest.


Amara:
I don't really know what to say to any of that, all I can say is you are amazing. It's great that you were able to lift yourself up again, and that you have such supportive friends. I'd love to know what was on that list of yours too.


Amanda:
Ah, now that's a secret. There are things on there that you'll just have to wait and see if I am brave enough to do them. Yet, as you know, this is how I met Master Gabriel so you might find out sooner rather than later. 


Amara:
Speaking of Master Gabriel...


Amanda:
Gods that man, I have no words for how he made me feel. How he makes me feel still. He was a force to be reckoned with, so dominating and demanding. So goddamn sexy! He took complete control of me, and using nothing more than that erotic pink rope, the mirror, and his deep sensual voice, he made me bloom. Gabriel made me break through the barriers I had erected, and admit that I am beautiful. I. Am. Beautiful.


Amara:
That you are gorgeous, that you are, and thank you again for being so open with us all. I can't even being to imagine what you've been through. I appreciate this, and think you are an amazingly strong person.


Amanda:
Thank you. It took me a while to realise that, but I’m glad I’ve finally got to a good place within myself where I can. I cannot believe I almost gave up. Foolish!


Amara:
Naw, its not foolish, its understandable. You rock! Thanks again! So, is there anything else you would like to say to those listening before you go?


Amanda:
Thank you for listening to my story, and please, please, ensure you always look after your health. Never forget that you are beautiful, and never ever give up! Live life to the fullest, always. Now, if you’ll excuse me I have a very important date with a gorgeous man, and his pink rope.


Amara:
Rawwr! Have fun Mandy! I must say, I would love to try out some pink rope for myself. I wonder if I can bribe my hubby dearest into it?!

Cover Reveal and Excerpt


Release Date: 4th Sept 2014

PRE-ORDER NOW! - Siren BookStrand

Excerpt

      Tristan hated these goddamn fucking social events. So much so that he hadn't even bothered to ask what this one was in aid of. It was bad enough that he had to organize the damn thing never mind attend it. Why he even had to was beyond him. He was only the CEO of Bailey Airline after all, no one of great importance. Taking a deep breath he put on his happy facade, huge shit-eating grin in place, and finally allowed his introduction to be made. Head held high, Tristan Bailey descended the grand staircase into the ballroom below, every pair of eyes in the room on him. All he had to do was welcome everyone and praise the charity. Then he could leave.

     As he stepped up onto the podium the crowd cheered. Lights flashed wildly as the photographers called out his name, vying for attention. Giving them what they wanted, Tristan kept the fake smile securely in place. He preened some for their enjoyment and winked at the cougars in attendance in order to curry their favors. Fuck, he hated that whorish behavior, yet it was expected of him. Finally getting serious, he addressed the room. "Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. It is an honor to have you all here tonight on this special occasion. I do so hope you are ready to spend a ridiculous amount of money. After all, it is for a good cause." Tristan grinned wider as everyone clapped.

     As the sound of his assistants sweet voice came over his earpiece Tristan smiled fondly. "Okay, Mr. Bailey, repeat after me." The girl was a life-saver. His rock.

     "When I was asked to host this fundraising event tonight I jumped at the chance. I mean, who wouldn't want to participate and help out such an amazing cause?" As the crowd erupted in another round of cheers, Tristan gripped the ledge on the podium stand. "The AWAN Project was founded in order to raise awareness and empower wounded warriors. Veterans of wars past. Men and women who have risked their lives in order to save millions. Without their aid we may very well be living in a different world right now." Tristan straightened his spine before inclining his head in the direction of Mr. Thompson, a veteran of the Vietnam war. "I think it is about time we recognized this, and in turn do whatever we can in order to repay their kindness. Their sacrifices. No matter how small." Somewhere toward the back of the room someone whistled and clapped. "Hopefully tonight's auction will raise enough money to help those men and women who need it. Don't be shy now, ladies and gentlemen. It is for a great cause after all."

     With another of his world-famous grins Tristan winked at one of the female reporters before stepping down from the podium. Such fickle people, fawning and swooning over his money. None of them were truly interested in the man he was, or the real  reasons for this function in the first place. It was all about the size of a person's bank account, nothing more, and it was the main reason he hated doing these damn events. With a sigh, Tristan tucked his left hand into his pants pocket and made his way across the room to the bar, avoiding all conversation. He only needed to spend a half hour at the most pretending to be interested, then he could leave.

     Rapping the top of the bar, he called for the barman's attention. "JD and coke please, and make it a double." Nodding once the barman went to retrieve the drink, returning quickly with the amber liquid and cold coke from the fridge. Thanking the younger man,  Tristan walked away from the bar and found a quiet table to sit down at. Thirty minutes and then he could leave again. That was it, thirty minutes, his support would be given and witnessed by all. Glancing around the room his eyes began to roam the crowd of people in attendance. He smiled and nodded when appropriate, praying that no-one would come to speak to him. He hated this. Still lacking interest he surveyed the main entrance of the room, and when Tristan's eyes landed on the tall blond standing by the staircase his heart stopped. One word came to mind. Mine. A sudden unfamiliar surge of possession wrecked his body, leaving him shaken. He had to introduce himself. He needed to know who that was. Rising from his seat, he quickly made his way toward the beautiful blond.

     "Yo, Bailey! How goes it, my man?"

     At the sound of his cousin's voice Tristan stilled momentarily. He loved his cousin, he truly did, but the guy had a habit of getting him into trouble. The one and only reason he tended to avoid him. "Callum, how are you, cousin? It's been a while."

     With a snort the slightly shorter, dark-haired man replied. "You're telling me. Two fucking years now. If I didn't know how much of a damn weirdo you are I would think you were avoiding my ass." Walking over, Callum grabbed him up in a big bear hug. The guy was huge, and freakishly strong, always had been. With a laugh, Tristan smacked him on the arm, growling to be released as the hired photographers for the nights fundraising event started snapping pictures. It wasn't as if people didn't know who the man embracing him was. They knew every goddamn detail of Tristan's life. He just preferred to keep some things private.

     "Let me go, asshat. This will be all over the damn internet tomorrow." Smirking, Tristan nudged his cousin in the back. Callum dropped him with a laugh, causing Tristan to lose his footing. The grin on the other man's face said he'd done it on purpose. The fucker. Tristan glared as he smoothed his jacket back into place before turning in the direction of the staircase, cursing at the realization that he had lost the blond.
