The Saviour Series by Lesley Jones PROMO TOUR!!!

 
I was born and raised in a small working class town in Essex, just outside of East London. I am married with three sons and in 2006 we all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about 50K outside of Melbourne Australia. It's a whole new way of life for us down here,we are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
I am currently a stay at home mum but in the past I have worked at Marks & Spencer, as a classroom assistant/teachers aid and have run my business.
As well as writing, I love to read and have been known to get through four or five books a week. My other interests are watching my boys play football...The round ball version; I am happy to admit to being an addict of social media and I owe a lot to my Facebook and Twitter family in promoting my work; I am also rather partial to a glass... or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being my favorite. Being a born and raised Essex girl, I will happily admit to be being a big fan of spray tans, Shellac and am regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although I am more likely to be found in thongs/flipflops than a pair of white stilettos these days.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
She's a smart mouthed Essex Girl, now living in Australia.

He's a good looking, born and raised. all surfing Aussie Boy.

Gabriel joins his brothers for a drink at a local bar. He's thirty five and very single. Good looks and a good job mean the ladies are generally lining up every night, which is just the way he likes it, straight sex, no complications.
Then their worlds collide, neither of them looking or thinking that what they need is each other, but the chemistry is instant and overwhelming and has the possibilty to consume and destroy them both. Can they overcome both their pasts to survive the future, together? Is the amazing, mindblowing sex enough?Join Lauren and Gabriel on their emotional, funny, sexy and traumatic journey as they try to conquer the demons from their past and try to build a future together. Their story will make you laugh and it will make you cry and sometimes do both at the same time!

Resolution picks up exactly where Saviour left us all hanging! Having left an abusive marriage at 45, Lauren can hardly believe that she has found Gabe, a 35 year old blonde buff sex god, their instant chemistry has convinced him that that he wants to change his serial shagging ways and to make what they have found permanent, he knows that he loves Lauren but relationships are a whole new concept to him and he doesn't always get it right.
Lauren, still reeling from the abuse she has suffered at the hands of her ex husband is not convinced that jumping straight into another marriage is the right thing for her, despite how much she loves Gabe, the sex is amazing, they have no problems there, with Gabe she is growing in confidence and trying things in the bedroom (and every where else) that she never even considered during her marriage but they have known each other for just 10 short weeks and already they have been through enough drama to last a lifetime. Lauren has once again been beaten and humiliated by her soon to be ex-Husband, Gabe has revealed he was sexually abused by his Step-Mother as a teenager, and Gabe’s ex is threatening to stop him seeing his daughter.
Will Lauren listen to taunts from jealous exes and her own self doubt; or will the love (and lust) Lauren has found in Gabe’s arms be enough for her to let go of her painful past to build a future with Gabe. Resolution is the conclusion of Gabe and Laurens story, it will take you on a roller coaster of emotions, with some steamy and erotic sex scenes, just to keep your pulse racing, like Saviour, some scenes are gut wrenching, it will have you laughing, crying and wanting to not only hug Gabe and Lauren but also wanting to shake some sense into them. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.

***RELEASE DAY*** Tame This by Hadley Quinn





It's here!!!! It's here!!!
Jay McCallan has arrived!




 Tame This 
(The McCallans, Book Two)
 by: Hadley Quinn

Synopsis:

KISS THIS continues with Jay’s story, a rebel of his own sort with the need for freedom and unfiltered opinions. His days of unruly behavior and risky decisions have dealt him a hand that he’s still trying to overcome as he seeks to accomplish his business dreams.

But the hits keep adding up. His best friend is knocked up by an ex that won’t back off, a family member drops in unexpectedly and questions need answered, and the easier aspects in life are suddenly being tested beyond his control.

When ultimate tragedy wreaks havoc on his life, it sends Jay over the edge. He can’t seem to manage the simple things anymore and he reverts back to his old ways of shutting people out and living carelessly. He loses everything he’s gained so far—everything that he didn’t know he wanted—all in one ugly weekend.

There is only one thing that can really save him from complete ruins, and this time it might not be so easily at his disposal. And then there is that damn McCallan pride that automatically resists help at every turn. It just may be the very thing that causes him to lose everything for good…

Teaser!

This is a snippet of a conversation between Jay and his cousin, Teague.
(Teague is the main character in book ONE - Kiss This.)


“You should just be more careful about who you hook up with,” Teague said.
“You’re one to talk,” Jay retorted. “Hello Kate?”
Teague looked at him hard. “Exactly, asshole. I’m speaking from experience. I met a lying bitch of a schemer and was totally fucked over by her. I don’t want that shit to happen to you, Jay. Just take the damn advice and think about it, okay? You have these pissed off exes and wannabe stalkers that—”
“Hey, I don’t have ‘exes’,” Jay corrected him.
“Fine, women that you’ve pissed off with your charming personality.”
“Why is it that they get pissed off in the first place? How more honest can I get than ‘this is only a one-night thing, sweetheart’. They willingly agree, so why does there have to be fucking hurt feelings over it?”
“You ever think that women may not ‘really’ fully agree with you?”
Jay laughed sarcastically. “How is it my fault if they say one thing but mean another?”

Hadley Quinn



My main interests include music, surfing, and dance. I also love to travel and I'm obsessed with baseball as well as several other sports. But there are DOZENS of other things that I'm into because I enjoy learning and trying new things. I love meeting new people and the experiences I gain from it. I'm feisty. I love to joke around. My sense of humor is generously proportioned, but I can trim it down when needed. Usually.

Life is about balance. I believe that with every unfortunate moment, there is always something better to counter it. We may not always see it right away, but I have faith that a pure heart will always come out on top. With this understanding, I feel it is an essential part of our lives to give more than to receive. I don't even mean monetarily. Your time and concern has more value than any nickel or dollar. Even the smallest lovingact can go a long ways and you will be blessed with many opportunities to do your part. The most important concept I like to follow is just the age-old Golden Rule: Treat others how you'd want to be treated. It is so simple.

I love to tell stories, and it wasn't until recently that I started to share them. I care about every reader as a person. Thank you for the encouraging messages, the kind suggestions, and your friendship.


Thank you for taking the time to care.

Kiss This

(The McCallans, Book 1)


Synopsis:

(This book includes mature content, including sex and language)


22-year-old Camryn Jacobs lost the love of her life once and vows to never kiss another guy unless she's in love with him. When she meets Teague, their attraction to one another is off the charts, and for the first time in two years, she wants to disregard her rule. 


But Camryn makes a bet that he can't go just one week without kissing her. She's protecting her own fragile heart, but her wit and smart mouth end up driving Teague crazy. 

When Teague is equally skilled at her challenge, their friendship turns complicated. He's not at all what she assumed, and he makes her feel things she never expected to feel. But sharing her true reasons for the no-kiss bet hurts too much and she keeps him in the dark. 

Teague has his own secrets to hide, starting with his last name. It's the reason he left town--to lick his wounds until he can piece his life back together. His time with Camryn proves that it might actually be possible, but with the threat of his family and his past ruining all that he's finally gained, can he really take that risk again?

Loving might be easy; learning to trust again could be too difficult to achieve..

***BLAST STOP*** Mia Michele's Rose of Thorne


2 Chicks and a Blog - Ashley's 5 STAR Review
 
Okay .. this is NOT a traditional Ashley review.  I won this book in a contest on the Feisty Girl Book Blog page. Meli and Joni - Feisty Girl - have always been a go-to of mine for book recommendations. These girls have never led me wrong. They've been bragging to me for WEEKS about reading this book and as soon as I saw the contest, I entered.

I AM SO HAPPY I WON!!!!

Just because I know how all my girls are - THERE IS A CLIFFY - but it's so worth it!

At the young age of 16, Skylar loses her parents in a tragic car accident that leaves her a shell of a girl. She has to pick up the pieces of her tragic life to care for her younger sister. Struggle after struggle, Skylar finally finds herself on the brink of graduating college and giving her sister a better life.

ENTER Sebastian effin Thorne. Sweet baby Jesus in a manger. This man is ridiculous. SIGN ME UP FOR ONE OF HIM PLEASE! Sebastian is a young and successful CEO of his late father's company where Skylar gets an internship to fulfill graduation requirements.

A split personality Sebastian (sometimes he's really amazingly sexy and cool and other's he's like an uber jerk) runs Skylar into the arms of YET ANOTHER rich CEO, Lucas Drake, here's where the angst gets pretty heavy.

Virginal Skylar can't give herself to her new beau, Lucas, because she's totally smitten with her boss, Sexy Pants Sebastian (yea, that's his new name).

Mishap after mishap, lands Skylar and Sebastian back together. Life progresses and all seems well and good.

Oh you thought it was going to be a HEA? You thought things would be cupcakes and rainbows? NO. NOPE. NOT EVEN CLOSE. WHY? Why you ask? I'll tell you why?

Mia effin Michele is a ruthless, rip the rug right out from under your unicorn and birthday cake fantasy. She gives you a nip twist from hades, pokes you in the eyes Three Stooges style, punches you in the lady parts and dances on your grave. EVIL.

Let me just say, I've been in quite the book funk lately. I haven't been able to read much of anything. I was FORCED to read this book tonight and I read it all in one sitting. The kids didn't eat dinner (or maybe they had cereal), the laundry didn't get done (I need a maid), my house is trashed (see maid statement) and I've smoked a million cigarettes.

Mia, you're responsible for all of the above. When the husband wants to know why "all of the above" I'm throwing you under the bus.

I totally give this book 5 out of 5, dip Sebastian in chocolate and feed him to me Greek style, stars. FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, I LOVE YOUR FACE MIA!
 

When a drunk driver tragically orphans Skylar Rose at the young age of sixteen, she leaves her dreams behind and takes on the daunting task of helping her elderly grandmother raise her young sister. While other girls her age were living a typical carefree life, she was picking up double shifts at a local cafĂ© and struggling to pay the bills. 

Always putting her sister’s needs and school first, Skylar has never had time to date or develop intimate relationships. Now a senior in college, she has her sights set on an amazing internship opportunity. The last thing she needed was for a sexy distraction like Sebastian Thorne to walk into her life. 
Sebastian Thorne had been an entitled and reckless nineteen year old when he got behind the wheel of his new sports car that night. When his night of indulgence goes tragically wrong, Sebastian hesitantly turns to the one person, he knows can make everything go away… The one person he hates… his father.

Now twenty-six, Sebastian is the young enigmatic and powerful CEO of his late father’s design company, Thorne Enterprises. With both millions in the bank and a new woman on his arm almost every night, the world never knew the dark secret he carried inside. Still plagued with nightmares from the night of that horrific accident and having to leave the beautiful girl behind, Sebastian vows to find the one that haunts his dreams. 

Sometimes the choice of revisiting our past opens the door to a future that we never thought possible.

But what do you do when the person who gave you back your life, was the very one that took it from you in the first place?

TAMING ERIC Promo Post



What the book is about:
Eric Rothman CEO of Rothman Enterprises had worked alongside his PA Natasha Barrington for almost a year maintaining a strong working relationship with her while enjoying a steady stream of beautiful model girlfriends that passed through his life. He did everything he could to avoid commitment, women were for sex and to look good on his arm but slowly he began to notice something about Natasha that drew his attention and had him wanting her with a desire that was starting to consume his mind and body.
It was both surprising and enlightening when one day he realised she was interested in him too and he propositioned her. One week in a hotel for sex and nothing but sex, making it perfectly clear to her that there would be nothing beyond that week.

He thought he was the victor when she agreed to his terms but was the whole thing going to backfire on him?

There was something about Natasha that drew him to her. She was like no other woman he'd ever been with and for the first time in his life he was fearful of being vulnerable. He had secrets about his past that made him the way he was and his PA was threatening to destroy everything he'd fought so hard for years to protect himself from.

This book is Eric's point of view from my first book Natasha's Awakening. Taming Eric like Natasha's Awakening can be read as stand alone novels or read both. Taming Eric does contain bonus material at the end which is not in Natasha's Awakening. These are both long books so if you're after a quick read, these books are not for you.

If you don't like the male point of view that repeats the story then this book is not for you although there is so much about Eric Rothman that isn't clear in Natasha's Awakening and it gives readers a chance to learn more about this alpha male who is sensitive at heart.

About the Author:

For as long as I can remember, I've loved to write, poetry, short stories just about anything. My English teachers in school kept telling me I should write and it took me a lot of years to finally get around to it.
I spent too long worrying about failing as a writer before I realised that living with the regret of never trying was worse.
I live in a sleepy country town in Tasmania, Australia with my partner and our three children, who aren't so little anymore, plus a whole assortment of animals.
Natasha's Awakening is my first book but I have no intention of stopping now and will continue to live my dream of being a published author. I have just published Taming Eric which is his POV to Natasha's Awakening.
My interests are writing of course, reading, watching movies and hanging out at home with my family, our six cats and one dog.

You can find me on facebook under my author page J. A Melville and my book's page Natasha's Awakening.
