Holiday Romance

Jenna’s Christmas Wish
by Debra Parmley
Genre: Holiday Contemporary Romance 
 
 
 
Santa, if there’s one thing I want for Christmas more than anything, it’s someone to spend Christmas with, not as an afterthought invitation because they feel sorry for me, but someone who really wants me to be there. 
Romance author Jenna Heart is headed to the mountains of East Tennessee for a December writer’s workshop. Since her mother passed after a long illness, Jenna has had one wish: she doesn’t want to spend Christmas alone. Every night she makes her list of five things for which she is most thankful. 
Meeting Nicolo Maldini, cover model and actor, could make more than Jenna’s Christmas wish come true. If Ember Morten, Nicolo’s ex girlfriend doesn’t do something crazy to stop Jenna and Nicolo from being together.

I’m a small town girl from GA. I enjoy getting into the zone and typing until my hands go numb. I like curling up under a blanket with coffee and reading when life allows me the time – especially when it’s rainy outside. I love my family with all of my heart. I am fond of humor and laughter because I think it keeps us sane and grounded. I pride myself in being open minded: say what you want to say, be who you want to be. Just don’t be mean, rude or a bully – because then you’ll see my Hulk side.

Slut
(The Twin Duo #2)
by
Jettie Woodruff

I thought losing my memory was the worst thing in the world. Forgetting who you are, and where you came from was like driving on a road with only right turns. All leading in the same direction. A direction I wanted to avoid, a dark tunnel that I had to enter if I ever wanted answers.
Losing my memory wasn’t the worst thing in the world. Learning, who I was, and the secrets I had kept was way worse. The unbearable pull and the passion we shared, mixed with the past that I didn’t want to remember, created a whole new storm. The perfect storm of two kinds of crazy. Stupid little fish.

Paxton leaned up on his knees. “Is that Nick?” “Yes,” I replied as I fell into the same tense position he moved to. Elbows on knees, and eyes and ears on the voices. “Where the fuck are my kids?” I leaned up and hit pause, stopping it right there. “This is how it’s going to go? We haven’t even started yet, Paxton. I don’t know where they are. I just asked myself the same question. I’m assuming they were at one of the thousands of activities you had them in. I don’t know.” “You were supposed to be with them.” “Yeah, well, I wasn’t, and I don’t remember why. So. Do you want to do this or not? I don’t see where any good can come from it if you’re going to be like this.” “How the fuck do you expect me to be, Gabriella? You’ve been involved with Lane for the last year. And this shit. I don’t even know what you’re doing here, or why you’re not with our children.” “I’m done. You have fun watching it by yourself,” I said as I pulled my stone from his, and stood like it was really that easy. Paxton jerked me back to his side by my shirt, his hand went around my throat, and he told me how things were going down. Not my way. “You fucking did this to us. You’re the one that showed up here like this with all these lies and secrets. Let’s find out what you’ve been hiding. Okay? We said we were doing this together. That’s what we’re doing. Understand?” I couldn’t reply with one single word. Not even a nod. My eyes closed, my throat closed, trying to control it, and tears slid down my face. Paxton abruptly stopped, let go of me, and stood. “Fuck this, Gabriella. Fuck. I’m sorry. Fuck. I’m just so fucked up over all of this. You forget to stop and think about what it’s like for me. Look at what you’ve brought into this house over the last few months. How do you expect me to be?” Words spewed from my mouth as tears slid down my cheeks. “This isn’t working, Paxton. Let’s stop. I can’t do this with you anymore. I bring out the worst in you, and you do the same to me. It’s not fair to either one of us. We can be good parents without one another.” Paxton looked at me like I’d just punched him in his other eye. “We’re not quitting. No, Gabriella. We’re not quitting. Don’t you ever think you’re leaving me. You’re never leaving, not even if we find out that you’re the wrong wife. You did this. You’re not going anywhere.” “There’s not a lot you can do to stop me, Pax. I can’t do this thing with you.” I jumped a little when he moved back to my side, afraid of him for a second. “I’m sorry, Gabriella. I’m sorry. I don’t want it to be like this. I’m sorry. I swear I won’t get mad. I know you don’t remember any of this, but damnit. It’s so frustrating. Where the fuck was I? Why didn’t I notice this going on right under my nose?” “Paxton, I don’t know.”

slutblogtourbanner1.5

Okay, these books have me reeling. There are parts that leave you thinking you know just what is going to happen, then BAM! You get thrown for a loop. The crazy love and hate relationship that is going on is crazy frustrating at times, but the hotness factor is definitely just right.

You are going to love finding out who the characters really are. Even as frustrating as Paxton and Gabby’s relationship can be, the shock and awe is really going to have you turning the pages of this read.

I was having trouble waiting for this one to come out, and I don’t expect anything less for the upcoming novella. You don’t want to miss out on these books.

How about a little Urban Fantasy?

Scorned
The Fallen Angelle Series
by Josephine Templeton
Genre: Urban Fantasy
 
 
Angelle, God’s first Angel, fell from grace along with Satan. However, after thousands of years as Satan’s girlfriend, Angelle wants back into heaven and becomes human. Now she must atone for her sins and save as many souls as she damned while fighting vampires and demons. One more condition — she must remain celibate.
Jack, a vampire hunter, visits Angelle’s bar, and their attraction is instant. But after watching her walk away from a car accident, he’s convinced she’s a vampire and must die. When Angelle doesn’t burst into flames at sunrise, Jack joins her quest to save souls. The partnership is jeopardized when two of the Scorned Bride’s daughters enthrall him.
Angelle must save Jack from another dimension, but in doing so, she risks her salvation. Will Jack want to be saved by the time she finds him? And if they survive the Scorned Bride, can they survive each other?

Interview with an Angel: Meet Angelle Smythe

(Character Interview)

What do you think of tabloid articles about normal humans seeing angels? For instance, Duck Hunters Shoot Angel – with a picture of a caricature angel in choir robe floating over pond. “I swear Clem thought it was uh goose…”

Most humans don’t see angels, so it’s possible the hunter did think it was a goose. Now, if the dude was really an arcane hunter (a/k/a supernatural hunter), he was probably hiding under the guise of playing it stupid because he was caught on film (Sometimes the real angel gets photographed, but that angel uses his or her powers to distort the image – hence the funny cartoon angel). Those type of hunters don’t care if the supernatural is good, bad or ugly. If it’s not of this world, then in their eyes it must die. My message to them: Get educated on your so-called prey!

What are the nature of angels, as they are described as completely different beings from humans? They must look very frightening as their first words are always “fear not” or its equivalent.

All beings are created in the image of God, not just humans. However, celestial angels in their true form would blind a normal human, whose eyes were not created to withstand the glorious sights of (and from) Heaven in the Earth realm. Hence, when angels first appear to those humans who are “tuned in” to them, the angel’s form is typically distorted. They tell the human to “fear not” so they know they mean them no harm. The human is naturally programmed to ascertain otherworldly creatures (hair on back of neck rising, etc). Of course, it’s up to the human to choose to acknowledge those warning bells.

Are their (angel) functions as messengers, guardians, worshippers, etc.?

There are 9 choirs of angels:

The 1st Choir are the Seraphim and take care of God’s Throne.

The 2nd Choir are the Cherubim and are guardians of the way to God’s throne as well as to the tree of life in the Garden of Eden.

The 3rd Choir are the Thrones and are symbols of God’s justice and authority.

The 4th Choir are the Dominions and regulate the duties of the lower angels.

The 5th Choir are the Virtues and control the elements – earth, wind, fire, and water.

The 6th Choir are the Powers, warrior angels loyal to God and Him alone.

The 7th Choir are the Principalities and serve Christ.

The 8th Choir are the Archangels, who watch over everything.

The 9th Choir are the lower Angels who communicate directly with humans in some form or fashion. There are four ranks:

  1. The Counselors are the guiding angels.
  2. The Messies are the messenger angels.
  3. The Keepers are the guardian angels.
  4. The Gypsies are the nature angels (aka gypsies).

Why do people on earth think they become angels after they die?

Preconceived misconception. Humans cannot become angels. Of course, there’s always a first time. God has the power to do anything He wants, and as far as I know, this rule might have changed. I’ve only been back on the Celestial for a short number of human years.

Of course, angels, on the other hand, can become human, as was I. Yet the process is not easy.

I must point out that humans can become demons by several different ways – infecting their blood, if Satan chooses it as punishment, and many other ways.

What is God like?

God likes everything – LOL.

He is everything a Father figure should be – protective; has unconditional love for all of His creatures, including Satan; playful; has the best sense of humor; stern when the situation calls for it; generous. I could go on and on with praise for Him.

As the youngest of nine children, I’ve learned a lot from my older siblings.  I’m still amazed at how different we are, but at the same time, how much alike.  I was the only child in the house by the time I reached high school.  So I had plenty of time to nurture my reading and writing skills.  My favorite author at the time was V.C. Andrews, and my first story was what is now known as fan fiction, with Indiana Jones as the main character.  In fact, one story I wrote had him switching planes in flight, and my mom pointed out that was impossible.  Who would have guess many years later that Harrison Ford would star in a movie in which he actually DID switch planes in flight (Air Force One, 1997)?!
I’m a member of HeartLa (the Baton Rouge chapter of Romance Writers of America) and have done freelance writing with Baton Rouge’s Town Favorites, Lafayette’s 008 Magazine, and Baton Rouge Parents Magazine.  I have four published novels under my wings (Convicted of Love – a historical romance, Forever Yours- a vampire romance, A Pirate’s Kiss – a historical romance and Scorned – an Urban Fantasy).

Against The Cage

Against the Cage
by Sidney Halston
Genre: Sports Romance, Contemporary Romance

 

 
A cop turned MMA fighter
A doctor who hates violence

 

 
For Chrissy Martin, returning to her Florida hometown always seems to bring bad luck. The day starts with a breakup text, followed by a jailhouse phone call from her troublemaker brother. Now a routine traffic stop has ended with her accidentally punching an officer . . . in a delicate place. Then Chrissy realizes that the hot cop on the receiving end of her right hook is none other than the man from her teenage fantasies.

Jack Daniels knows how to take a hit. After all, when he’s not chasing reckless drivers, he’s kicking ass in a mixed martial arts ring. So what takes his breath away isn’t the low blow, but the woman who dealt it: a gorgeous knockout with legs Jack wouldn’t mind being pinned under—who just so happens to be his best friend’s nerdy little sister, all grown up. Soon their instant chemistry leads to a sizzling affair, but Jack and Chrissy are fighting an uphill battle if they want to make love last beyond the final bell.
 
After working hard as an attorney, Sidney picked up a pen for the first time at thirty years old to begin her dream of writing. Having never written anything other than very exciting legal briefs, she found an outlet for her imaginative, romantic side and wrote Seeing Red. That first pen stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Sidney lives in South Florida with her husband and children. She loves her family above all else, and reading follows a close second. When she’s not writing, you can find her reading and reading and reading. She’s a reader first and a writer second. When she’s not writing or reading, her life is complete and utter chaos, trying to balance family life with work and writing (and reading). But she wouldn’t have it any other way.

It was only a matter of time until the truth came out.
I never thought it would come to this…
I tried, God knows I tried to stay away from her but
eventually I crossed that line and broke that trust. I could no longer go back
and I sure as fuck didn’t regret a single moment of it. I knew there would be
hell to pay, I knew the wrath I’d be facing but I would willingly take the
burns and scars just to have the love of my best friend’s sister.
If there is one person I’d willingly go to hell and back for

“Is that right?” I replied arrogantly, centimeters from her
lips. “I don’t know you? Really? What part don’t I know? Maybe I don’t know the
way you move your hair to cover the side of your face when you’re nervous. Or
maybe I don’t know how you bite your bottom lip when you’re deep into your
strings. Or do you mean that I don’t know the way you freak out if it’s too
dark in a room and you won’t walk in? Or maybe I don’t know that you bite your
fingernails when you think no one is looking. Oh wait, here’s a good one. I
don’t know that you’re trembling in your skin right now. I don’t know that your
heart is beating a million miles a minute, your hands are clammy, and you can’t
swallow. How there are hundreds of thoughts going through your mind, but the
top one being how bad you want me to kiss you. How bad you want me to fuck you.
How bad you want me to claim every fucking inch of your perfect body,” I paused
to let my words sink in, and her flushed complexion gave away that everything I
was saying was true.
“You’re right. I don’t know you. I don’t see your gorgeous
smile in my sleep. I don’t hear that ridiculous giggle you have when I’m away
from you. I don’t see those dark brown eyes every time I close mine.” I leaned
in a little closer so she could feel my breath against her lips. “I don’t
stroke my cock to the memory of your sweet pussy pulsating down my shaft and
the taste of your come dripping down my chin.”
