Blurb

Macie Connor can’t resist throwing a penny in Bethesda Fountain every time she goes on a date–even though the date never works out. Who knows? Maybe luck will smile on her this time.

Or maybe she’s just unlucky, like her dead sister Karen.

Karen’s handsome ex-boyfriend Rylan wants Macie to help him find her sister’s killer. All she wants is to put it behind her–and end her attraction to a man she can’t have. But the closer they get to the murderer, the closer danger draws them together.

*****

Excerpt

Rylan caught Macie and kissed her. Her breasts flattened against his chest as her lips parted, allowing his tongue to slide inside. His palms gripped her round bottom and pulled her closer. An unnerving sizzle settled in her belly.

Macie shivered, her whole body vibrating with pleasure. Suddenly, Rylan’s arms released her and an embarrassed flush colored her skin.

“I—” Macie bit her lip.

Rylan held up a finger. “You don’t have to say anything. I’m sorry that got of hand. We were both excited. About the computer, I mean.”

“Yes. Right.” Macie couldn’t meet his eyes.

Rylan took a step back. “We should look at what’s on the machine.”

Macie scanned the desktop and started opening files. She cursed her body’s betrayal. Why did it have to be him? She wasn’t appreciating fate’s cruel joke.

Rylan touched Macie’s arm. “I don’t think Karen would be mad.”

“What? What do you mean?” Macie wanted to pretend she didn’t know what he alluded to. It was more comfortable—much more comfortable than admitting to the sexual chemistry between them.

“About us,” Rylan stated.

“There is no us,” Macie corrected.

“There could be.” Rylan let the possibility hang in the air.

Name the Band Contest! Loved Liam in Something True? Help Name His Band #newadult #romance #rockstar

SomethingTrue 2aOkay Readers! To celebrate the launch of the Curvy Girl Romance Group on Facebook (and my newest New Adult release), I’m having a Name the Band Contest. (FYI, Something True is curvy girl romance and included in the Crazy About Curves anthology.)

Can I ask for your help with a little brainstorming? Something True contains an as yet unnamed rock/alternative band. I’d like to write a sequel, and I’m thinking that I can’t continue to avoid saying the name of the band.

If you haven’t read Something True, here is some background on the band.

Liam Smith is the lead singer and guitarist.

Rob is on the drums.

Sean is on the bass guitar.

So that’s it — three Irish guys in a successful rock/alternative type band. Some of their hits are Stars Rise and Falling into You.

How do we do this? Leave me some suggestions in the comments. Try not to suggest a name that is already in use.

I will randomly choose among the commenters to give a free ebook! You can have a copy of anything in my backlist.

Amazon * Amazon UK * Barnes & Noble * Kobo * All Romance * iTunes

A little more about Something True

Successful children’s musician Shelley Taylor sings for all kids, but especially the sick ones. After her little sister died in childhood, Shelley founded the music charity KC’s Kidz to entertain hospitalized children.

She didn’t sign up to babysit a rockstar.

Irish bad boy superstar Liam Smith is in trouble with the law–again–and needs to perform community service. KC’s Kidz seems like the perfect fit, especially since Shelley’s as curvy as his favorite guitar and he wants to play her.

Liam’s deep green eyes strike a chord in Shelley, and she makes him want to sing a different tune. But Liam lives in a spotlight so white hot it might burn them both before they discover the true music inside their hearts.

*****

Footsteps echoed on the tile and Shelley looked up from the stack of paperwork on her desk. The air shimmered around him. She would have known him anywhere. Anyone would have known him. Liam Smith was famous or perhaps even infamous. Musical talent and outrageous behavior were on display in sold-out stadiums and lurid tabloids. As a fellow musician, she admired his talent for setting clever turns of phrase to music, but rumors of hard-partying and illegal drugs dogged him.

He tilted his head. “Shelley?”

He sounded just as she knew he would, deep, smooth with a hint of Irish. The warm resonance of his voice washed over her, more compelling in person than she imagined was possible. The radio simply didn’t do him justice.

An involuntary tingle settled low in her belly, and she finally understood why women went so wild for Liam. Glossy black hair swept over his forehead above luminous emerald eyes, reminiscent of the verdant green pastures of Ireland, where he’d grown to a man. He was long and lean, but his navy shirt clung to the manly muscles underneath. His bare forearms were roped with matching tattoos.

Shelley shook herself free of his unexpected spell. “I’m Shelley.”

“I’m Liam Smith.” He reached out to shake her hand.

Shelley accepted the handshake automatically. Did anyone not know who Liam Smith was? She supposed that might be true in some deep hidden pocket of the world. “Vera told me to expect you.”

“Vera would be your agent then?” The corner of his mouth curled into a lopsided smile.

“Yes, she assured me that your interest in helping KC’s Kidz is genuine.” Her voice held the hint of doubt.

A wide grin split his face. Shelley was a sucker for a great smile and his was a killer. Wasn’t she well past the stage where a handsome face would turn her head? Apparently not, if Liam’s was anything to go by.

Liam moved out of the doorway. “It is.”

“Extra hands are always welcome. There’s plenty to do.” Shelley tried to convey a no nonsense attitude.

“Just tell me when and where.” Liam rocked on his feet, seemingly ready to pounce into action.

Shelley blinked, confused. “You’re here now?”

Liam pointed out the window. “I’ve got a guitar in the car. I’m ready to go.”

“Ready to go where?” Shelley shuffled through some papers and put them in a stack to the side.

“To play. You know.” Liam mimicked strumming a guitar. “Isn’t that what you do? Play music for kids?”

“That’s one thing we do.” KC’s Kidz also required endless fund-raising, grant writing and organization.

“Well, that’s what I’m here for,” he said as if it were all obvious.

Shelley’s lips thinned. “I don’t just send someone on over to the hospital. It doesn’t work that way.”

“What could be so complicated about it?” For the first time since he walked into the office, a crack appeared in his friendly demeanor.

“Some of these children have special challenges. It can be difficult to engage them. It’s unlikely you’d walk in right off the street and have a successful appearance.”

Liam smoothed his expression. “I don’t mean to sound arrogant.”

“You’re right. I’m sure the kids would go wild over a big star like you. However, I’m not sending over someone from KC’s Kidz unless they’ve been trained and I trust them to handle things.”

Liam took a deep breath. “Fine. Where do I start?”

“We have toy donations to sort.” It was true. Shelley had been too busy to attend to the toy donations and most of the other volunteers were busy with preparations for their annual fund-raising dinner, which was coming up soon.

“Sort toys?” Liam didn’t hide his confusion.

“Yes,” Shelley replied.

“Do you think that is a good use of my time?” Liam asked.

“It’s something that needs to be done and you said you wanted to help.” Shelley tamped down her irritation. This is why she hadn’t wanted to agree to this arrangement in the first place. Sometimes volunteers thought it was all concerts and celebrities and didn’t stick around when they found out otherwise.

Liam laughed. “Fine. Show me the toys.” The hint of impatience melted away.

Shelley hid her smile and rose to her feet. She was almost tempted to direct him to something he would find even more distasteful. Maybe she should tell him the toilets needed cleaning. Her lips twitched as she imagined his reaction.

She approached the door, but Liam didn’t immediately move to let her pass. He was close. Too close. Her blood rushed through her veins and her breath caught. She saw Liam’s pupils contract as their eyes locked. Irritation rose within her. She didn’t plan on turning into some kind of teenage groupie. She brushed past him and her elbow burned where it bumped his bare forearm.

Or maybe she’s just unlucky, like her dead sister Karen.

Karen’s handsome ex-boyfriend Rylan wants Macie to help him find her sister’s killer. All she wants is to put it behind her–and end her attraction to a man she can’t have. But the closer they get to the murderer, the closer danger draws them together.

What do rock stars, a movie star, several billionaires, some alpha wolves, a mercenary and a couple of guys next door have in common? They’re all Crazy about Curves and they are all part of this collection of ten romances, from sweet to scorching, featuring plus-size heroines and the men who crave their lush, curvy bodies. Brought to you by today’s hottest New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Authors and romance’s future stars!

Captive Heart – Adriana Hunter (NYT/USAT). Lainey Matthews will stop at nothing to rescue her brother, even if it means contacting a dangerous mercenary with a shady past. But when she comes face to face with Gideon Wolfe, it doesn’t take long before she has to wonder whether she might be the one that needs saving…from him.

Curve Contract – Christa Wick (NYT/USAT). Cheated by her PR firm’s CPA, Pippa Jones is about to lose everything – until billionaire Blake Cross offers to fix both their problems with a fake marriage. But with Blake worshipping her body 24/7, the cost of saving her firm just might be a broken heart.

Alpha Marked #1: Scarlet – Celia Kyle (NYT/USAT). Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering! As if hitting thirty wasn’t enough, unmated Scarlet is summoned to this year’s Gathering. Marked to mate an Alpha pair, she can only find happiness with two werewolves. Which means werewolf speed dating. Great.

Curvy, Crazy, and Confused – Ava Catori (NYT/USAT). Samantha finds her uptight neighbor boring. Christopher thinks she is loud and annoying. Being trapped in an elevator together should be their worst nightmare. So why can’t Sam stop thinking about him, and why is the claustrophobic Chris more than ready for another elevator ride with the plush beauty?

Ripped – Olivia Rigal (USAT). Lyv wants a life far removed from her dysfunctional family and the diner they own, especially now that Ten, her best friend and lifeline to normality, is spending a semester in Europe. What she gets is an absent rock-star baby daddy and one helluva choice to make – unless it’s ripped from her first.

Bought by the Billionaire Brothers – Alexx Andria (NYT/USAT). Twins Nolan and Vince hatch an indecent plan to put accountant Penny McDaniels in their bed at any cost. Soon enough, their feelings for Penny go beyond the physical, but they never imagined their older brother Dillon would return home and threaten everything in their world.

Bikini Curves – Charlotte Summers. Rescued from drowning, layout artist Maddy Davis never expected her hero to be womanizing actor Alex Stone or for the event to be aired live on TV. Now she’s part of a PR stunt to save his tarnished reputation. But how much of Alex’s interest is a role and how much is real?

The Reluctant Billionaire – Danielle Duncan. After a failed affair with a billionaire, Sophie swears off workplace romance and takes a job as another rich man’s chef. Then she falls hard for Rhys, mistaking him for a mere gardener. Can love survive his secret, her ex-lover and a lawsuit that threatens everything?

Something True – Malia Mallory (NYT/USAT). Irish superstar Liam Smith is in trouble with the law – again – and must perform community service. A music charity that entertains hospitalized kids seems like the perfect fit, especially since its director Shelley Taylor is as curvy as his favorite guitar and he wants to play her.

Laid Bear: The Kodiak Clan – Marina Maddix (NYT/USAT). After six years a widow, bear shifter Veronica Muir falls in love, with a human. Her secret might be the one thing marine biologist Jess Slade can’t accept – if a group of human-hating werebears doesn’t rip the couple apart before he can even decide.

No matter where you are (in the northern hemisphere anyway), it is fall. Though the weather is pretty much the same year round where I am, that doesn’t prevent me from getting into the spirit of some wonderful fall activities.

Here are some suggestions that you might enjoy with a significant other.

1.  Fall Fantasy Foliage Hike with Passionate Picnic

In certain geographic areas, fall is truly a beautiful time of year. The summer heat has faded away but jeans and a sweater are still adequate protection against the elements. The trees fire up a spectacular display of color as they go dormant, exiting for the season in blazing glory. Take your sweetie and enjoy a last outdoor hoorah before the chill of winter sets in. Now is a great time for hiking and biking. The weather is cool and the scenery plentiful. Fill a picnic basket with hearty fare and head out! Just remember to pick a private spot when you spread out that picnic blanket.

2.  Sexy Snuggling on the Hearth

Is there anything more enticing than a roaring fire on a chilly day? Yes! How about snuggling with your honey in front of said fire? The warmth from the flames will keep your skin toasty until you create your own heat! A hot toddy wouldn’t hurt either.

3.  Hot Harvest Hayride

The quintessential hayride has all the romantic elements – low lighting, soft cushiony space (hopefully), close quarters and layered clothing to hide your forays into the intimate space of a companion. Such naughty flirting is bound to build the anticipation for an intimate encounter…later!

4.  Frisky Football Game

When there is a snap in the air, sports fans turn to the snap of the football. Mix it up one weekend. Instead of the couch snuggle during the game, take a blanket and some hot drinks to the stadium. No one will ever guess what’s going on underneath the covers!

5.  Alluring Apple Bobbing

Don’t leave the apple bobbing to the kiddies. Instead of the traditional bobbing in the water, hang the apple from a string and go at it on opposite sides with your chosen target. This activity presents many opportunities for intimate contact J

What do you find romantic this time of year?
