Soar Teaser #3 and a giveaway!


Less than three weeks to go until the Soar release. I'm so excited to share this story with you guys! For now, here's another teaser. I thought you guys might want to visit with some other familiar Crescent characters. ;) Also, enter below with your email  for a chance to win a Soar e-ARC.  I'll pick two random winners. Giveaway open until Tuesday at 11:30 p.m. est.  

“So, Casey, did you get a chance to see any of the city last night?” My eyes zeroed in on her face, she’d have to look up at me eventually.
“No. We came right here from the airport and it was already late.” She looked up, and for a split second, our eyes met.
“That’s too bad. I’ll have to remedy that tonight. Let’s plan on dinner at eight and go from there.”
“We’ll be back by then?” Nice, she hadn’t completely shot me down.
“We’ll be back tonight.” Toby put his arm around her waist. “Where did you want to do dinner?”
“You weren’t invited.”
“I wasn’t?” His smile said it all. He wasn’t going to play dead and roll over. That just made it better.
“No. Casey’s never been here. I’m giving her the special treatment.”
“I heard your dad owns this place, Allie. It’s gorgeous.” Casey glanced around the lobby. Her eyes stopped on the chandelier with dangling crystals.
“I think so too. It’s got a lot of character.”
I couldn’t resist that opening. “I’ll show you lots of places with character…”
“You are a character, Jared.” Allie nudged my shoulder.
I ignored Allie and focused all my attention on Casey. “I promise, Casey. It’ll be a good time.
 She bit her lip, and I knew I was in.
“Eight sound good?”

The Tuesday Tease

Hey everyone!

Here's a short tease from Shaken Not Stirred. I'm so excited to reveal the cover and description next Wednesday! Also, stop by on Thursday for a Soar teaser!

“Oh, if I’m good?” he teased. Teasing fit him in a weird way. He seemed so serious, but I knew there was more underneath.
I could play along with the teasing. “Good? Were you planning to be bad?”
He laughed. “This is starting to sound a lot dirtier than it actually is.”
“As long as you don’t start asking if I’m a good girl, I think we’re okay.”

The Tuesday Tease

Hey everyone! Soar releases in just four weeks!

Here's a short teaser:

I wondered what his chest would feel like under my hand, what his lips would feel like on mine. I always pictured he’d be the gentle kind of guy, but the hint of his personality I’d gotten the night before made me wonder if there was something much more primal underneath.

Soar Teaser #2!

Hey everyone! Soar releases in just five weeks. I cannot wait to share this new Pteron story with you, but for now, here's another teaser.

 I took the outstretched cup from her. I sipped the coffee, and she was right. “Very good.”
“I wonder why they call it a storm?”
“I don’t know, but I doubt they’ll tell us. They’re pretty secretive about recipes here.”
“Oh.” Some disappointment crossed her face, and I knew I’d get the recipe sooner or later. “Well then we might have to come back.” She accepted the cup from me and took another sip. After she gave off another of those small moans, I got a little suspicious.
“Would you excuse me for a minute?”
 She nodded, going in for yet another sip.
I found the witch that owned the place, the same one who’d seated us. “What did you put in our coffee?”
She smiled. “You shouldn’t have tasted anything different, sir.”
“But she’s tasting something different, isn’t she?” I nodded over my shoulder.
“I thought I’d help you out a little. Push things in the right direction.” She rolled her tongue over her teeth.
“It’s an aphrodisiac spell?”
“The spell only affects women. I know the Society rules about using magic on Pterons.”
“Now what do I do? I can’t take it away from her, but I can’t let her drink it.”
“Why not? You can take her home after this.”
I shook my head. “This better not happen again or I’ll close this place down.”
“You could thank me.” She wore a playful look, and I was certain this wasn’t the first time she’d used the spell on a customer.
“Thank you?” Witches were usually okay, but this one was earning a spot on my bad side.
“For helping out. It’s been too long. Allie’s gone, it’s time to find someone new.” She spoke as though we were close friends and she knew exactly what I was going through. The truth was we’d only met a handful of times.
I knew the action was done with the right intentions, but it really put me in a bad place. Now even if the opportunity arose I couldn’t ask Casey back home.  I sure as hell wasn’t going to take advantage of her that way.
“Relax, Toby. It only works if the girl’s into you already. If she isn’t, it will be useless. If it works well you know you’ve got her attention even without the spell.”
“I could kill you for this,” I muttered before returning to the table to find Casey with a nearly empty cup and half the pot of crème brulee.
“Sorry I started on this without you.” She pushed the dish toward me.
“It’s okay.” I put an arm behind her and she happily snuggled into my side. I figured letting her get close wasn’t taking advantage of her.
“I’m glad you asked me out.” She ran a finger down my chest, and even through the cotton of my shirt it made me shiver with a mix of anticipation and need. “I’ve wanted this a long time.”
“Me too, but it’s getting late.”
“Are you ready to go home?” Her words were innocent enough, but her eyes weren’t. She wasn’t planning on spending the night in her own bed, which made it that much more important that she did.
“Unfortunately I have to run into work. I’ll make sure you get home safe first though.”
“Really? That’s not fun.” She pouted. Then she looped one leg over my lap and straddled me. Her fingers moved to my shirt again, but this time they didn’t stop at my chest. I stilled her hand before she could start playing with my belt buckle.
“How about we go out another night? Maybe next week?” I wasn’t against using her state to my advantage by lining up a future date. Hopefully she’d remember we made one.
“I’d love to, but do we have to wait that long?” Her teeth nipped my ear. “Can’t you just put off work a little bit longer?”
“It’s going to be a busy week for me.” And a painful night. I’d never hated my jeans more.  “But I’ll see you at work.”
“At work?” she purred into my ear. “Can’t it be at play?”
What kind of spell had they used? Casey was ready to go right there at the café. I had to cool things down and fast.
“Not yet.” I carefully moved her off my lap and stood up.
The physical separation seemed to help a little. Her face relaxed, and she rested her hands at her sides. “Okay, hopefully the week will go fast.”
“You and me both.” I wasn’t sure how long the spell would last, but hopefully a week would give it enough time to leave her system.
I sat on the opposite side of the cab and gently pushed her back over to her side every time she got too close. The look the cab driver was giving me in the rear view mirror was priceless. He’d thought I’d lost my mind. I’m sure it looked that way. Generally it wasn’t my practice to push away a sexy girl who was trying to get into my pants. Knowing her desire was accentuated by magic didn’t make it easier.

The Tuesday Tease # 2

Hey Everyone!

For this week's tease, I thought I'd share a few lines from Shaken Not Stirred! I'm so excited to start sharing more of this story with you guys. Check back later this week for a new excerpt length teaser from Soar!

Here's the tease:
I leaned on my elbows in front of Macon. “Was that really necessary?”
“What? I was just telling him the truth.”
“The truth? We’re roommates, Macon, not some live-in threesome.”
He laughed so hard he coughed on his drink. “Live-in threesome? Yeah, if you want that, we’re switching Brody for a girl.”

And yes, it is that Brody from Veer. :)

The Tuesday Tease

Hey everyone!

I'm going to be trying something new on the blog. I love sharing teasers and excerpts, but sometimes it's fun to share something even smaller, what I call a tease. I already share these little tastes with friends sometimes, so I thought it would be fun to start posting them. It's amazing how a few lines can give you a feel for a book.

Soar releases in just six weeks so that's where my first tease is from. I'll be posting longer excerpts over the next few weeks. In case you missed the last one, you can find it here.

Here's the tease:

 I shook myself. I was not allowed to fantasize about sleeping with a guy just to enjoy nice sheets.

These lines give you a little taste of Casey and her sense of humor. I've had so much fun writing her, and I hope you guys enjoy reading her story when Soar releases on November 19!

Confined by Jennifer Snyder Release Day!

Happy Release day to Confined by Jennifer Snyder! I'm so excited that the third and final book of this awesome NA paranormal romance series is now available! 

 Sometimes the things in life that seem to confine us most are often the ones that save us…
To Addison Harmon becoming initiated appeared to hold the answers to her every problem—all except what she would do after, when the tether was finally broken. But when the after Addison imagined isn’t the one unfolding before her, she finds herself tangled even further in a web of secrets, lies, and betrayal.
It’s not until Addison is captured by the last person she ever suspected would betray her that she’s forced to rely on herself for survival.
Questions will be answered. Trust will be misplaced. And hearts will be broken.

Sometimes who we really are lies buried just beneath the surface…
After learning she’s inherited a house in the beachside town of Soul Harbor, Georgia, Addison Harmon and her best friend decided to take a much needed vacation before the pressures of life after high school suffocate them too heavily.
But what Addison finds isn’t a chance to recoup from a bad break up and hang out with her best friend while she decides what she wants to do with her future. What she finds is Kace Sullivan—a sexy guy she can’t seem to get enough of—someone who with one touch reveals a seductive world full of magick and secrets Addison isn’t sure she’s ready to be a part of.
(New Adult/Mature Young Adult: Contains sexual situations, mild language, and underage drinking.)

Sometimes to understand the present you have to conjure up the past...

The last thing Addison Harmon needed was to become tethered to the broody, often seemingly cold, Theo Van Rooyen, but that's exactly what happened.

Forced to partner up with Theo to figure out a way to break the tether, Addison soon realizes she may have bitten off more than she can chew.

(New Adult/Mature Young Adult: Contains sexual situations, language, underage drinking, and drug usage.)
