Book Spotlight – “Gray’s Promise” by Anni Fife … and a Giveaway

 #AHAgrp

I’m very pleased to host today’s guest and her fantastic book. The  moment I read the opening pages, I was hooked. Gray’s Promise is Steamy, intense, and emotional. And, I promise, you will fall madly in love with Gray!

I’ll let Anni have the floor…

A Steamy Romantic Suspense

An interesting thing happened when I started to write Gray’s Promise—nothing went as planned! Initially, my suspense plot was based around fracking and stealing lucrative gas by tunneling into a neighboring ranch. This would explode into death and mayhem, and eventually a kidnapping. But as much as I researched and planned, my characters refused to conform to my plot. They hated it! Eventually, I stopped trying to force it and went for a long walk on the beach. And heard what my characters were trying to say.

Gray and Zoey’s journey to their happily ever after was so painful and intense, and so darn beautiful, that a complicated suspense plot would only distract from their explosive relationship. So I started to ask that magical question a lot of authors resort to when a plot isn’t working: ‘What if…?

As my answers flowed, so did my plot. I tossed out fracking and kidnapping, held on to the murder, but brought the evil much closer to home…and voila, Gray and Zoey started to talk to me again…and they didn’t shut up until three months later, when I wrote ‘the end!

  

BLURB

A jealousy that destroys everything in its path…a love that refuses to die.

 Zoey Morgan seems to have it all as a successful surgeon in Boston. However, perfection lies only on the surface. Plagued by nightmares and amnesia from a tragedy that ripped her family from her fourteen years ago, she finds the courage to reach out to the only man who can make her feel safe. She’s buried the memory of their love, but her heart—and her body—responds to the ex-marine in ways that are all too familiar.

Grayson “Gray” Walker’s heart shattered when Zoey chose another man over him. Since then, he’s built an impenetrable wall around his emotions. But from the moment she implodes back into his life, her vulnerability breaches his defenses. His skills as an elite member of the King Security team cannot shield him from the devastation of learning he might have left Zoey high and dry when she needed him most. Now, Gray must navigate the tripwire of helping her heal while protecting himself from being hurt again.

As the embers of their potent love reignite, an old threat awakens, leading to greater danger than ever before.

EXCERPT

Gray!

He was behind the reception desk, leaning over a computer screen, and discussing something with the receptionist. He glanced up to check who was exiting the elevator. I had no doubt he knew me immediately because his brows snapped together, recognition clear on his face. His eyes tracked me as I approached.

“Good morning, may I help you?”

I tore my gaze from Gray’s to stare at the receptionist. He was slim, dark-eyed, and so perfectly groomed he looked like he’d been airbrushed for a GQ cover. His brow arched, waiting for my response. I ignored him and looked back at Gray, who remained frozen. Like a still-life, one arm resting on the back of the receptionist’s chair, the other bracing himself on the desk. Only now, his face was blank. My stomach tried to launch into my chest. Blank! I didn’t know how else to describe it. Dear God, please let my face be blank too. But I knew it wasn’t.

Gray!

My heart raced. It was a cliché but it was true. I could feel it pumping in my chest. Gray was even more handsome than I remembered. His dark hair was short, but not military short. It was sleekly styled, like his clothing. Practical, but his jeans were definitely designer. He was more built than I remembered, the power in his body clearly defined by the silky black T-shirt hugging his torso. He’d always been confident; now it was something else. Something that lifted the hair all over my body. But my heart didn’t care. It beat wildly. Recognizing him. Wanting him.

But his face was blank.

“Hello-oo! Do you have an appointment?”

“Cool it, Blake, she’s here for Gray.”

It was the hunk who looked like Thor that spoke. But like Gray, I paid him no heed. I was locked in a silent battle of wills with Grayson Walker. And I was losing.

Shit. I should have made an appointment.

I sucked in a long breath. One-one-thousand, two-one-thousand, three-one-thousand…ever so slowly, I breathed out, never breaking eye contact with him. My heartbeat settled. Yes. I could do this; I was a master at control.

Acid trickled up my throat as he pushed away from the desk and straightened to his full height. His fixed gaze never left mine. My hands curled, fingernails digging into my palms. I always remembered his eyes more blue than gray. Gentle and glinting with wicked humor. Not anymore. Now they were slate. Cold and lethal, like the scalpels I used to cut through human tissue.

“How did you know where to find me?”

No greeting? No “lovely to see you, Zoey”?

“Gerald,” I croaked.

I swallowed hard, pushing down the pain. My voice was normally husky and low-pitched. Gray used to say it was sultry. I loved that, especially since the huskiness was a result of baby colic. I was a chronic crier as a baby and developed nodules, which in turn created calluses on my vocal cords. So sultry sounded nice, sexy.

I didn’t sound sultry now.

My skin goosed as I watched his lips set into a hard line. His mouth was one of the thousand things I loved about him. His upper lip a perfect cupid’s bow. His lower one, full and sensual with a marked indent. I used to tease him that he had the mouth of a porn star. And he did. God! The indescribable pleasure—

“…do you want?”

What did he say? As usual, I’d let the past smother the present. “I’m sorry—”

“What are you doing here, Zoey?” he repeated, clearly impatient.

Yes, what was I doing here?

The Chronicles of Darius Book Twelve: Memory of Me (The Dagger of Destiny 12) by Jess Thomas

Please help me welcome today’s guest, Jess Thomas…

 

Hello Jess, happy to have you today!

Where did you get the title for Memory of Me?

Usually I get the title from the content of the book.

Why did you choose this genre?

I believe love is love, and I get frustrated with people who can’t see that. Many of my friends are gay and I wanted to support them. The character of Trend was fashioned after a dear friend who passed away last year.

Was there anything unusual, any anecdote about this book, the characters, title, process, etc, you’d like to share?

Part of the book I was having trouble with my boyfriend you can tell how close it came to breaking up. The character of Trend was a dear friend who spent nights with me and watched old movies. He’s a lot like the character of Trend right down to the makeup on the eyes.

What is the most difficult thing about writing a book?

That’s easy it’s editing.

What was the most difficult thing about this one in particular?

In one chapter the clan places two objects at the table to remember them by until they get them back. I just lost my mother this year and my father last year it made me cry when I was writing it. I think it hit a little close to home.

Are there any tricks or habits you use when creating a story?

Good question but no, I write in the stream of consciousness. I do usually have a glass of water by my side though.

What book have you read that you wish you would have written?

The Picture of Dorian Gray By Oscar Wilde

Do you have another occupation, other than writer? If so, what is it and how do you like it?

I was an art teacher for 20 years I got trigeminal neuralgia and had to go on disability because of the pain. I liked it although the stress of the job caused neuralgia to flare up and then I couldn’t talk.

What do you love that most people don’t like and wouldn’t understand why you do?

I like to feed all the little wild animals including possums and skunks. They are cute in their own way.

What do you dislike that most people wouldn’t understand?

I don’t like bell peppers.

What’s the main thing that you could get rid of in your life that would give you more writing time?

I write most of the time.

What is one word you would use to describe yourself? The one word I would use to describe myself is Artsy.What is one word you think others might use to describe you?  I’m sorry to say Flaky.

What’s your favorite book of all time and why?  

The Three Musketeers. I liked this book because of the adventure and the closeness of the friends.

What do you want readers to come away with after they read Memory of Me?

A range of feeling in emotions from laughing to crying. I want it to feel like life even though it’s words away. I want the reader to really understand the characters and their lives.

What actors would you like in the main roles if your book were made into a movie?

I have a lot of characters in my books, Liam Hemsworth for Finnal, Chase Crawford for Darius and Adam lambert for Trend

Would you rather have a bad review or no review?

That’s a hard one because I worry when I get a bad review that I should have changed something or made it better I guess no review.

If you could change something about one of your books that’s already released, what would it be?

I’m not sure about this question, I really haven’t wanted to change any part of my books.

What genre have you never written that you’d like to write?

Mystery

What is your favorite quote?

“Glory is fleeting, but obscurity is forever.”

– Napoleon Bonaparte

If you were stranded on a deserted island and you could have 3 (inanimate) objects, what would they be?

A ham radio, Knife, Sunscreen

What celebrity would you most like to be stranded on an island with?

Lol well that would be Thor.

Your most prized material possession? Why?

My great grandmothers Brooch. Because it’s a little bit of family and times long gone.

Your favorite…

Movie Prince of Persia

Music Pop

Place you’ve visited Europe, Mexico, Canada, most of the United States.

Place you’d like to visit Scotland and Ireland.

TV show from childhood Andy Griffith

TV show from adulthood The Good Doctor

Food Cheese and Onion enchiladas.

Sports team KU Football

Which do you prefer: Board games/card games or television? Card games

 

Thank you…it was great getting to know you! Now, Jess has a question for readers…

What Character do you like the best and why?

 

Darius thought he could make it through anything, he was strong and had an inner strength that could pull him through the various trials of his life. However, his strength is going to be put to the ultimate test. Will he be able to cope when he realizes the weapon of destruction could actually be the one thing he lives for? Sometimes the greatest love is the greatest pain.
For the first time, everyone understands the prophecy told so long ago that Darius would be the end of the everything. The loss of white energy would destroy not only him but those he loved and the places he protected.
An ominous journey to beyond the here and now with two of the greatest powers of the universe is the only way to begin to right what has gone so sorely wrong.

Join Darius in his latest and most important adventure. The fate of so many not only depends on righting so many wrongs, but on understanding and forgiveness.

Memory of Me will thrill and excite you with its heart-rending story.

Mistletoe, Snow and Suspense ~ A Collection of 5 Christmas Stories – ONLY 99 Cents!!

Please help me welcome Pamela S Thibodeaux, an author friend who is sharing a Christmas anthology with us…

Happy Thanksgiving!!

#AHAgrp

 

Keri’s Christmas Wish by Pamela S Thibodeaux, a finalist in OKRWA’s 2017 IDA contest is part of the Mistletoe, Snow and Suspense collection of 5 Christmas stories by 4 acclaimed authors, available for a limited time @ only 99cents!

 

About Keri’s Christmas Wish: A devout Christian at heart, Jeremy Hinton, a Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Spiritual Mentor and Energy Medicine Practitioner has studied all of the world’s religions and homeopathic healing modalities. But when a rare bacterial infection threatens the life of the woman he loves, will all of his faith and training be for naught?

A few favorite lines:

* The entire world went bug-eyed crazy when it came to Christmas.

* When Jesus was born doesn’t matter, only the fact that He was, He is and He ever shall be…in a world without end.

* The light grew stronger, brighter. Beckoning. I need to get to the light.

Fun Fact: This entire story evolved from one quick vision: A young woman scrolling on the internet and mumbling “Bah-Humbug” over Christmas in July ads. Keri and I have a lot in common, I LOVE Christmas but not all the hype and and commercialism around the holiday.

What was the best thing about writing in conjunction with other authors: What’s so great about this anthology is that each author contributed an already published book – there was no real collaboration or reason to feed off each other with the possibilities of something not working.

 

Collection includes:

KERI’S CHRISTMAS WISH by Pamela S Thibodeaux

Can Keri get past her angst over Christ’s birth and enjoy the Christmas season?

THE CHRISTMAS ANGEL THIEF by Lillian Duncan

Zoe Adams has a secret—one that’s worth killing for!

 WORKS OF DARKNES by V. B. Tenery

Some secrets just won’t stay buried.

ANGELS AMONG US by V. B. Tenery

In the season of Love, Peace and Joy, a chance meeting with a young woman in a supermarket sets Detective Cole Allen on an urgent quest to save the lives of three young women.

CHRISTMAS WITH THE ENEMY by Mary Vee

A family Christmas just can’t be celebrated with one of them on the grounds.

 

Excerpt from Keri’s Christmas Wish:

She awoke in another dimension. Keri had no idea if she was in Heaven, but neither did she fear Hell. Her surroundings were reminiscent of a dense forest at dusk. Shadows danced against a sunset where brilliant colors bled from the sky. A light shone in the distance but as she moved toward it, Keri felt as though she plowed through molasses. Unease pricked her skin. The sound of water drew her deeper into the woods until she stood at the base of a vast waterfall and rapids so swift she dared not attempt to cross the river.

The light grew stronger, brighter. Beckoning.

I need to get to the light.

The Highlander’s Accidental Marriage by Callie Hutton – ON SALE for 99 cents!!

Please help me welcome my friend, author Callie Hutton…

#AHAgrp

My book, The Highlander’s Accidental Marriage is an historical romantic comedy. It’s a road trip story, set during the Regency period. The heroine in my book on her way to visit her twin sister who is expecting a baby. She is travelling from London to the Highlands.

Although it is not a romance story, one of my favorites is Planes, Trains and Automobiles. We watch it every Thanksgiving, and never get tired of it. The very first road trip movie was the old “It Happened One Night” with Clark Gable and Collette Colbert. It was the first time a man removed his shirt and bared his naked chest to the movie audience.

My, how the times have changed.

I think there is something both funny and romantic about a man and woman—generally strangers when the story starts—who are thrown together, face a great deal of trouble together, and eventually fall in love. The most recent road trip movie I saw was The Mountain Between Us with Idris Elba—new to me—and Kate Winslet. Not a comedy, but still a very good movie.

I guess one could say that a wagon train story is a road trip, also. I covered that in my book, Emma’s Journey, and again in Prisoners of Love: Becky. They are fun to write, and I love getting my characters into lots of trouble.

The Highlander’s Accidental Marriage is currently on sale for .99. It is the 6th book in my Marriage Mart Mayhem series. Lady Sarah Lacey is on her way to the Highlands to visit her twin sister, Lady Sybil MacBride, when she meets with an accident. Stranded on the road, she encounters Professor Braeden McKinnon, traveling to his home near Sarah’s destination. She cajoles him into escorting her and her maid.

As they take to the road together, Braeden finds the fiery Lady Sarah a handful of trouble. But nothing prepares him for the words she utters in front of witnesses that binds them together in matrimony. Waiting for word that he has been selected to work on an archaeological dig in Rome, he had no intention of taking a wife for a long time. Now that she has accidentally married them, however, perhaps it would not be such a bad thing, after all.

Except Sarah has no intention of being anyone’s wife. She has other plans . . .

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and holiday season. And if you’ve never seen it, take a look at Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

Forbidden Distraction

By Siera London

BLURB:

 Sex therapist, Dr. Vivianne Sloan is the consummate professional. Adhering to the highest ethical standards and doling out her vast clinical expertise, her clients are seeing a heat wave in the bedroom while Vivianne has to get hers from the Florida sun. Looking for some sexual healing, the one man she fantasizes about, a fellow colleague and her boss is strictly off-limits.

Obstetrician Gynecologist, Jared Pierce, has a flourishing medical practice. Outside of caring for his mother, there’s nothing he spends more time on, except thinking about Vivianne Sloan. She’s a distraction he can’t live with or without. He wants to teach her everything he knows about the art of lovemaking, but the woman plays by the rules.

When Vivianne decides to serve as a sexual surrogate, Jared is driven to give the shy beauty a dose of passion so potent she becomes addicted after one night in his arms. What happens when these two forbidden lovers decide to break the rules?

~*~*~*~*~*~

Excerpt:

Jared balled his free hand into a fist, the other held firm at Vivianne’s lower back, guiding her where he wanted her to go. Her sable brown, almond shaped eyes met his. As she walked, her full curves were a fluid poetry beneath her suit, her inky black locks swayed against her shoulders. She was beautiful. So much so, that Jared found it hard to breathe when she entered the room. Every male doctor on the staff was drawn to her innocence. When she provided her monthly lectures on the psychology of human intimacy, she was so academic, that Jared nearly groaned with the need to teach her everything she talked about with such expertise. God knew he’d left his mark on every inch of her body during their two days together in Tahoe. They reached her office first. When he didn’t stop at the heavy oak door marked private session, she stopped mid-stride.

“My office.” With one hand, he led her stiff form forward, ushering them to the end of the hall. He was as angry with himself as he was with her. Why had he given her years to reach the conclusion that they belonged together? What he was about to do, should have happened three years ago.

After their weekend in Tahoe, he’d tried to find her, but the little minx had purposefully withheld her contact information. She went as far as to check out of the hotel within hours of leaving his bed. It had taken Jared weeks to locate her in Howard University’s doctoral program in Washington, DC. When she’d responded to the job posting he’d crafted he’d thought…yes. Finally, he could end his blue balls period of abstinence. Oh, he’d maintained a steady stream of female companionship for appearances, but he’d gone to bed alone. Every freaking day for over two years, he’d walked into the office hoping this would be the day that she came to him. Give him some indication that she was ready for them to move forward. Admitted that she was his. He growled in frustration. Startled she glanced up and over her shoulder. A crease ran the length of her forehead and a wary expression had dimmed the usual sparkle in her eyes.

“Sorry,” he clipped. Keep it together Pierce. Don’t frighten her.

Thank the heavens he requested weekly human resources updates. After he spotted the first application for a sex therapist his curiosity piqued. When he saw the second application his temper erupted like a volcano. Luckily, he remembered he was onboard a plane, and reined his anger back in before he was tasered and carried off by an air marshal. A few calls and not so discrete inquiries to the office, he was incapable of uttering a word. Discovering that Vivianne planned to leave was a shock, but the stink on the trash pile was what she had on reserve for her free time. She was going to pay another man to sleep with her…what the hell was she thinking? Jared ground his molars shredding the very idea under the compounding pressure. The fact that she could tolerate any man touching her made him want to go postal. When had her feelings towards him changed? He had to ask.

“What did I do?” He felt the muscles along her back tense. “Have I hurt or offended you in some way, Vivianne?”

He couldn’t stop himself from massaging the tension from her lower back. Maybe, she thought he slept with the women who’d accompanied him to SCMC fundraisers. Jared thought of his parent’s marriage. He grew up watching how his father’s betrayals chipped away at his mother’s adoration. Johnson Pierce thought his money would cover his sins. That trinkets and trips could sustain his wife’s love and his only son’s respect—he’d been wrong. His father’s infidelity was one of the reasons that Jared had waited until the right woman had come along before he gave her his heart. Vivianne was smart, funny, and giving. She was it for him and he could never be unfaithful to the woman he loved.

“No,” she whispered, a slight moan escaping on the tail end. “Of course not.”

Yet, she was leaving him.

They’d reached his corner office. With a touch of added pressure, she walked through the door he held open. Once she was inside, he engaged the lock. She jumped when the ‘click’ sounded in the room. In a flash, he had her back pressed against the closed door, his big body trapping her.

“Then why try to leave without my knowing?” She let her head fall back against the door. For the first time, he could see the mental anguish she was under. She was suffering, too. “You want another man?”

He had to hear her say the words. After more than a year of torturing himself to stay away from her, he needed to understand her reasoning. Before Vivianne, he’d been with women who only wanted sex. He’d felt deep in his soul that Vivianne wanted more from him. The way she’d touched him, caressed his face during their lovemaking like she was imprinting his every nuance into her memory. She’d tempted him beyond sanity with her slow and thorough exploration of his body. Dark hair to match his own, dark eyes that flamed higher with each touch, skin so rich, he’d be the wealthiest man in the world if he possessed her.

“It’s purely for therapeutic reasons…”

So, she would share her body, a body that occupied his dreams, with another man for medicinal purposes? Just thinking about her responsive body being seen by anybody with a penis set his mind down a deadly path.

“You can do that here…with me.” He eased an arm around her waist, moving her closer until her breasts brushed against his chest. “Whatever your ailments, they disappeared when I was buried inside you.”
