Liliana Hart scores with Cade MacKenzie

Cade is a very good score indeed for all you readers looking for a new man to keep you company this weekend, delivered at high intensity by Liliana Hart.

SmokeCade: A MacKenzie Family Novel” was my introduction to the fast and furious world of the MacKenzie brothers. I like that kind of world, it grabs you from page one and refuses to let go, holding your attention like a five alarm fire. And of course where there’s fire, there’s smoke and in this story it’s the smokin’ hot sex. You can find that between the sheets, on the kitchen table, outside… well you get the idea. Be forewarned, this read is about as far from PC as you can get. This very bad boy hero knows exactly what he wants and how he wants it, and he’s not shy about saying it.

Sure, it’s summer and the weather man says it’s going to be a hot weekend, but what’s the harm in kicking it up a few more degrees? You can always fill your bathtub with ice and slip into that.  See how I’m thinking after reading this? Oh and if you really need any more incentive, the e-book is free. Yes, I said free. Head on over to your book dealer of choice right now and grab a copy! It’s a great way to meet Liliana and if you enjoy Cade, there’s a slew of MacKenzie men for you to sample at your leisure, along with plenty of other reads to occupy your nights and weekends. I might even have a few tucked away on my Kindle.

Hey, those weekends come around every five damn days, a girl’s gotta keep herself entertained!

 

Cade

Cade MacKenzie is prepared to give his life to destroy the cartel that killed his lover, but the only way to draw them out is to present them with the perfect bait.

Bayleigh Scott has no idea who her new neighbor is, only that her body is drawn to him in ways she can’t explain, and the danger that surrounds him isn’t the deterrent she knows it should be.

More than fireworks explode between Cade and Bayleigh when she discovers the real reason he relentlessly pursued her, but by then it’s too late, because she’s already been drawn into a deadly game of desire, deception and revenge.

Author Sahara Roberts courts Desire & Deception

In a world that celebrates the cut-throat, step on anyone who gets in your way attitude especially in business, one of the most amazing things about being an author is how everyone shares the love. We help each other, offer advice, constructive critique and when you’re very, very lucky, sometimes even a NYT best selling author will take a few minutes (actually 45 minutes in this case but who’s counting!) after hosting a chat to graciously talk to you, one on one, about your plot. I don’t want to drop any names, lest the author in question be flooded with “help me” requests, but she is one of my favorite authors. (Sorry, this will not help you find her). It was hard to be all cool and collected while sweating through my Fan-Girl urges, but I think I pulled it off.  Hopefully she’ll read this and know how very much I appreciated her time and insight.

So how did this miracle come about you ask? (Seriously, you know you’re curious). My girl Sahara Roberts, a.k.a. trouble maker in arms, crit partner and all around bestie, that’s how. She asked a favor of the aforementioned author and you could have knocked me over with a feather (admittedly not an uncommon occurrence on a Friday night but this was a Wednesday!) and (this is the amazing part) she agreed to go over my WIP  issues with me!! Did I mention NYT best selling author??

So, I ended up feeling much better about my plot, I’m logging words again, and if I squint real hard, after a couple of shots of Grey Goose, I swear I can see the finish line off in the distance. I’m kidding! Sorta. Anyway…

Something else unique to authors, we actually love it when one of us makes it, reaching the status of Published Author. We help each other, stay up late untangling plot lines and offering support, not just to our friends but the community at large. Where else could someone like me, a total stranger, have a one on one with (yeah gonna mention it again) a NYT best selling author?! It is, quite simply, an awesome community to be a part of it. So right here, right now, I’m very happy to showcase my best friend’s debut novel:

Sahara Robert’s “Desire & Deception” (Entangled Publishing)

Someday when I get the big bucks I’ll spring for a website that comes with drum rolls, Ta-Da’s and confetti fireworks, until then you’ll have to settle for this girlfriend, and my congratulations!

Kristopher “Kris” Harmon has spent years climbing the ranks within the Mexican cartel. He walks a tight line between vicious drug runners with agendas of their own and working with the cartel leaders he’s trying to organize. Any distraction could prove fatal for him.

Their worlds collide when Tessa is mistaken for a drug mule and taken captive. As time runs out for both of them, Tessa has to reach beyond her fears and trust a stranger while Kris must choose between his lifelong ambitions and saving Tessa’s life.

If they want to survive, both must trust that there is more to the other than what meets the eye.

Incy Black is “Hard to Hold”

Voice can be a difficult thing for an author to nail down. Readers manage to instinctively pick up on it, and it’s one of the attributes that determines who becomes a favorite author for them. That is probably what I love most about Incy Black and her writing. Her voice is unique, recognizable and draws you immediately into the story. Reading her blog is a refreshing charge into a summer downpour, complete with the occasional lightening bolt to keep you on your toes. Sure, you’re gonna get wet but as they say, life is all about learning to dance in the rain. Incy does that with snarky abandon.

Check out her blog and you’ll immediately want to know more about her.  Browse the first chapter of her latest release “Hard to Hold” for free, and I can just about guarantee you’ll be hitting the buy link. So go get it and welcome to your newest reader addiction.

You can thank me later.

 

Hard To HoldAnna Key Marshall is about to get what she’s always wanted: a baby. Granted, it’s through a sperm donor instead of her ex-husband, but you can’t have everything. She has no idea why someone wants her dead, but she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her unborn child—even if it means turning to her ex, the Black Ops specialist who broke her heart.

Five years ago, British Intelligence agent Nick Marshall slammed the door on the woman who betrayed him. But now Anna’s back in his life with a vengeance, pregnant and full of attitude. He’d like nothing better than to walk away, but with her life on the line, he has no choice but to do what he does best—protect her at all costs.

As old wounds resurface, Nick begins to doubt his version of what went down with Anna so long ago. And he begins to believe they might have a second chance together. But with Anna’s would-be killer on the loose—it will take the full force and fury of his protective instincts, fueled by a powerful love he can’t leave behind, to hold on to the woman he still loves.
