Hot & Deadly Blog Hop!

Keep Hoppin'! Explore Other Blogs who are Participating!
For the hot and deadly hop, I chose my paranormal romance/suspense novel, Hart Attack: Book I in The Hart Family Saga! Although this is an ongoing series with a second novel coming out this autumn, it is also perfect as a stand-alone as well and can be read with much enjoyment due to a cliffhanger-free ending and hot, deadly characters!

Purchase Hart Attack at: Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo!

Due to the novel being paranormal, all the bad guys are the good guys and two of the worst are Sebastiaan de Vries, the Lycan King of North America with too many secrets and a close link to Andreas Damgaard, a powerful and ancient vampire.

However the two men had two beautiful sisters in their site: Lena and Angelika. The two women think they know what they are getting involved in but don't have the faintest clue!

Of the two, Andreas, is without a doubt my favorite hot and deadly character because he truly does make being bad look so good!

So, readers, tell me who your favorite hot and deadly character is by leaving a comment and also entering below on the actual Rafflecopter contest. The winner receives the The Supernaturals Collection No. 1 and the first two books in The Vamp Saga: Mortal Death and the follow up prequel, Immortal Lair. The winner will also be entered in the grand prize which is a $53 gift card to either Amazon or Barnes & Noble!

There are two more novels, Better off Immortal and Queen of the Immortals to keep you cooled off long enough before Change of Hart: Book II in The Hart Family Saga is released!

Happy reading!

Prizes Up For Grabs!

Cover Reveal for Falling Into Love (One More Night Trilogy)!

Title: Falling Into Love (One More Night (Rock & Roll Trilogy))
Author: Selene Chardou
Expected release date: June 28, 2013
Genre: Contemporary
Age Group: New Adult
Cover Designed by: Stephanie Nelson from Once Upon A Time Covers

Book Description:
“Lies, sex and rock are always on the menu when touring and if this journey has taught me anything, it’s every empty, vacuous idea I had before I met Kaz was the stuff of little girl fairytales. Love isn’t pretty, pink butterflies and hearts drawn on pieces of paper, it’s scratch marks down Kaz’s back after we have wild crazy sex and the way his aquamarine eyes look into mine as if I’m his and he’s claimed every inch of my body, including my heart, mind and soul…

“This journey isn’t about up and coming stars on the rock scene—it’s about the ones who’ve made it and still can’t get it together. It’s about drug abuse and unprotected sex, it’s about my love for a man who claimed he would never fall in love yet I managed to snag him. Not because I’m pretty, blonde and have a knock out body but because I can see past his sexy, drop-dead beautiful façade and underneath are the kind of dysfunctional, wretched secrets you read about only in the most twisted romance novels.”

The final part of Kaz and Syd’s journey will have them dealing with issues they never saw coming and a few they did. Friendships will be tested and relationships will be obliterated but at the end of the day, it’s all about the music and that always comes first.
Kaz can’t fight his feelings for Syd any longer and he’s given up trying. When their togetherness seems almost perfect, a curve ball is thrown and it just might end up destroying the love they have worked so hard to keep.

Can they survive the repeated assaults against their relationship and come out on top or will the tour always come first, even at the expense of what they hold sacred?

Cover Reveal of Who He Is by Shanora Williams writing as S.Q. Williams!

 Add Who He Is to your Goodreads TBR list!


Eliza Smith has never been the one to seek a relationship. She’s never dated a guy in her life, never even hugged a man (outside of her father/manager of the hot and popular rock band, FireNine) but when she decides to spend her summer on tour with FireNine, it all changes. Eliza really gets to meet Gage Grendel - her former crush from high school and the lead singer of FireNine - and witness sides to him to which she’ll begin to truly despise. 
She’ll ignore him, she’ll dislike his ways, she’ll do anything to try and stay away from him until Gage finally gets her to slip up and give in. She agrees on a casual fling with Gage, but soon they’ll both see how the fling will blur into something they can’t control and when it’s finally time for Eliza to go and accomplish her own dreams, she’ll know there’s more she took from Gage than she ever thought possible.


Lifting his hands, Gage gripped the edge of the pool and pressed his arousal against me. When he was done tasting my neck, he devoured my lips, and I couldn’t help it; I wrapped my arms around his neck. My legs squeezed tighter around him, wanting to feel his hardness against me. It was turning me on in more ways than one. His silky tongue, although laced with alcohol, tasted sweet as it ran over mine.
He started to rub against me and I moaned, running my fingers through his slick hair. His hard chest was pressed firmly against mine, no space between us. The little nibbles and bites he took of my lower lip were driving me insane. His fingers that snuck beneath my bathing suit to slide inside me caused my moans to grow louder and his lips to fall so he could grunt against my neck.
I was spiraling, bucking against him once again. “You like that?” he whispered gruffly in my ear. He reached behind me with his other hand and unhooked the top of my bathing suit. I could have stopped him, but I didn’t. A growl came from his throat as he stared at my bare chest.
I nodded my head at his question, my body begging him to continue. Who knew his fingers could be so magical? He was pushing in and out of me, circling his thumb across my core. I was so close. My fingernails bit into his skin and he went faster, faster, faster, sending me higher and higher… but then he just stopped. Right when I was about to reach the point of it all.
“What the hell are you doing?” I breathed raggedly, aggravated.
He smirked, looking into my eyes and pulling his fingers out of my bottoms. I wanted to beg for his fingers not to leave, but I didn’t. It would have been too embarrassing and shallow. “Since we’re only ‘friends,’ I can’t give you the full effect.”
I scowled at him. “You’re kidding.” He raised an eyebrow. “Right?
“No, Ellie. Let’s just do this shit. I swear it’ll be fun.”
“What do you mean?” I asked, but I knew exactly what he was talking about.
“Nothing between us has to change. It doesn’t have to be serious and I think if we try to continue this little war, someone’s gonna get hurt. Why not just give in to the temptation? We can still be friends, but maybe we can involve the bed and handcuffs I brought up to before at the club?”
He gave a lazy smirk and I snickered. I thought it over, replaying the conversation Montana and I had just moments ago, knowing he was right. I wanted to do more things with Gage than I thought, and with him giving me an orgasm the night before, I was desperate and in need of more. It was bad, but it felt good to be satisfied—to reach the point of bliss and not come down for hours. I didn’t want anyone else in the band to try and give me that kind of satisfaction. Gage was my best bet, so I shrugged and thought to myself, Fuck it. Montana was right. I had to take risks and I was going to be taking a big one with Gage Grendel.
“Okay,” I said right before kissing him and allowing him to finish what he started.

Sunday Teaser for Falling Into Love (One More Night (Rock and Roll Trilogy))

Another tease because I'm a bad girl like that!


Kaz practiced the following day at Wembley Stadium with the rest of the band. They decided to only run through a few songs because he would have to save up most of his strength for that night.
The stadium and venue were massive but they’d also sold out both concerts within an hour. The pace would be packed solid while he played his heart out and his girlfriend wouldn’t talk to him. She took photos while Damira continued her documentary.
Love you like a drug, what we truly fighting for? Is this just to keep me in pain and tethered to your broken soul or are we really meant to act this cold? Do you really want me or is it what I can give you? Do you care about me at all while life keeps fucking me over? Will you continue to fuck me over to because I happen to be close and need to be used…by you?
Kaz breathed into the mic as Jaden played one of the most intricate and difficult guitar solos while Will strummed the base and Grant played the drums.
He’d promised himself “Use Me, Abuse Me” would never be played at another concert after he and Damira divorced. It was an ode to her and every other fucked up relationship he’d endured. The song depressed the hell out of him because it was the first song he’d written while Randall continued his sadistic behavior.
The lyrics were a direct reminder of what he had been going through while he pretended the song was about a young woman, it was really about Randall and their twisted relationship. His brother would never know and neither would any of his significant others but the look on Syd’s face was all knowing.
It was much too eerie to look into those eyes and knew she glimpsed his soul. She took a few more candid photos before she walked away and once again, he was alone and without the only woman he’d loved for much too long but couldn’t be bothered to actually say the words she so desperately needed to hear.
Kaz knew he was pathetic but everything was always done on his terms. They always had and they always would be regardless who came in and out of his life.
Keren had understood that and so had Damira but he realized Sydney Landvik couldn’t be compared to either of these two previous women. She was someone else entirely and she would fight him for an equal amount of domination and control every step of the way. She never gave in, not even when she lost her virginity to him. It was still on her terms and he’d been so blinded by lust, he hadn’t seen the forest for the trees.
All along she had been manipulating the situation to her benefit and he failed to comprehend this simple fact until that very moment.
Use me and abuse me, take everything from me but know that you are drainin’ my very soul. Do you want a part of me or all of me? Tell me what you need from me -- just make the pain go away and I’ll do anything you say. Lay me down to die, make me want to cry just don’t leave me here like this!
Use me and abuse me but you’ll never have all of me, my world has stopped spinning and I know that I am winning. I’ll fight you and I’ll beat you and I’ll feel every part of you but soon there will be nothing left to lust and existence will just cease…for both of us. I beg of you to…stop.
The song ended and Kaz slid the mic on the stand before he walked off the stage without a word.

To Be Continued...

Happy Sunday and have a wonderful day!

The Winners of the Contest & an excerpt from Falling Into Love!

The winners for A Celebration of New Adult Romance are...drum roll please....

Kym W. has won a brand new Kindle Paperwhite!
Joan S. has won a $40 Amazon gift card!
Lori F. has won a $20 Amazon gift card!

Congrats, ladies, and I will be in touch with all the winners within 24 hours. 

Now for the good part...a brand new excerpt from Falling Into Love, the final part of the One More Night Trilogy! Remember, this trilogy only focuses on Syd and Kaz's relationship before and during the tour. 

Their story will continue and be the first novel in the Scarlet Fever series, which will examine each band member's relationship with their significant others once the Gods of Rock Tour is over.


Shortly after arriving to our hotel and settling in, the girls wanted to have a drink at The Promenade Bar. I’d showered and changed into a slinky black, lace-edge Versace cocktail dress and paired it with silver Christian Louboutin four-inch sandals. Kaz surprised me as I slipped on a couple of bracelets and kissed my neck.
“Where do you think you’re going in that sexy nightgown?” he joked before his hands gripped my breasts through the thin material.
“Downstairs to have drinks with the girls,” I replied before I turned around to face him. My arms immediately laced around his neck and all the sudden, I didn’t care about drinks anymore. I just wanted to spend the night devouring this beautiful man.
Why couldn’t I get enough of him? I felt like a nympho in heat and no matter how many times we slept together, it never was enough. I would never tire of this man and the thought suddenly frightened me half to death.
I needed to get away just to breathe on my own and to stop what ever I was doing. It wasn’t healthy—my constant need for Kaz. I had to leave to see my friends, if only to prove to myself I didn’t have an unhealthy addiction to my boyfriend who turned me into a wanton sex kitten when ever I was in his presence.
His aquamarine eyes were bright and stared into my own; I had no secrets from him and there was no where for me to hide. “What girlfriends would those be?”
“Ugh…” My mind suddenly went blank before the names came back to me. “Faith, Laurel, Sasha, and Damira.”
“So, you aren’t spending any time with Keren or Misty?”
I shook my head. “No, baby. Besides, Misty is pregnant and she shouldn’t be drinking.”
Kaz’s grip grew tighter on my body and I suddenly felt a strong sense of abandonment. I was abandoning him, the same way his mother had and I should have asked him if it was okay to go out that night. Not because I was afraid he would say no but because he needed me a lot more than the girls did.

To be continued...

Happy Sunday and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
