synopsis

One bad hit has left the career of young NHL Center Luke Hudson in question. When he arrives for rehab with a minor league team, his injury has robbed him of the edge that made him great.

Team trainer Adella Price’s job is to help Luke get back in peak condition. But their one on one sessions shake her resolve to remain unattached. Dell is hands-off to all hockey players, even one as charming and successful as Luke.

As Luke starts to get ahold of his game again, he loses his grip on his heart. Helping Luke get his edge back brings to light what Dell is missing from her life. But those who want them apart are relentless, and with their careers on the line, Luke and Dell must decide if their love is worth risking it all.

Synopsis:

When sexy Dom Sebastian sees Ashley, he can’t seem to take his eyes off her. She will become his love. His pet. His slave. He’s cared for her since high school but he was different then. He was scrawny and geeky and unpopular. The only times Ashley knew he existed were the times when she was making fun of him. Ashley had been in control her entire life but things were about to change. Sebastian has been reunited with Ashley and is now intent on training her to become the obedient, submissive woman who will please his every need, his every whim.

Careful to conceal his identity, Sebastian hides behind a mask, hoping she doesn’t recognize him. Only there is something strangely familiar about his piercing baby blues. He doesn’t reveal his name to her, instructing Ashley to address him only as Sir. He often refers to her as Wildcat, the screen name she used to meet men online. Sebastian spends months training Ashley to submit, but his feelings for her often get in the way. He tries to remain tough because he has vowed to never love again, never let another woman hurt him, but there’s something different about Ashley. She makes him want to be a better man. There has always been a soft spot in his heart for Ashley. Can Sebastian learn how to truly love someone and can Ashley love a man she’s never really known?

Author Interview

Name: Raine Storm

Age 33

Where are you from Lyndhurst, Ohio (near Cleveland)

A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc I’ve always loved reading and

writing and feel that books give us all a chance to get away from reality for a bit. I also

really enjoy sports. I have spent some time coaching baseball and I love to watch my

beloved Cleveland teams on TV even if they usually let me down.

Fiona: Tell us your latest news? My first erotic novel Wildcat will be coming out

later this month. I had always enjoyed writing psych thrillers but it’s been a lot of fun

expanding into the erotica genre.

Fiona: When and why did you begin writing? I began writing when I was just a young

child. It’s always something I’ve been good at and I’ve gotten lots of compliments on my

writing but I also write because I absolutely love books. Especially real books. I collect

Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer? I think I’ve always considered

myself a writer. There was a four year span where I quit writing because I received so

many rejection letters but once I heard about self-publishing I went back to be the person

I always have been, a writer.

Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book? All the compliments on writing

inspired me to write my first and I’ve been writing them for as long as I can remember.

Last April I released my first novel. A psychological thriller called Hazed and Chained

and holding that first book of mine in my hand is one my life’s greatest moments to this

point.

Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style? My style is that I’m a dark writer. I often

pride myself on shock factor and I’m not afraid to tell things like they are.

Fiona: How did you come up with the title? I got the name Wildcat from a scene in the

movie speed when she was driving the bus and the bomber called her Wildcat.

Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? There are two

messages. One is that no matter how tough and closed off a man is the right woman can

change is thought process entirely and the other is that in order for any relationship to

work things need to be good in the bedroom. Communication is key to that. Don’t be

afraid to tell your partner what you want.

Fiona: How much of the book is realistic? It’s mostly fictional but there are a few

things I’ve taken from real life. I usually add some life experiences into my books. I’ve

definitely taken some things friends have said or done and put them into the book.

Fiona: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? Some of

the sex scenes are from things I’ve tried with partners in real life yes.

Fiona: What books have most influenced your life most? My favorite books are the

Catcher in the Rye, The Time Traveler’s Wife and Gone Girl. Catcher in the Rye is good

because the character is so brutally honest. Gone girl has a lot of shock factor which I like

because it’s a similar style of writing to mine and I feel it’s helped me improve my style

and Time Traveler’s Wife is a very well written love story. Not usually my thing but that

one got to me a bit.

Fiona: If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? I would

have to say Gillian Flynn just because of her style of writing, so brutally honest, dark,

suspenseful and shocking.

Fiona: What book are you reading now? Currently reading Captive in the Dark by C.J.

Roberts.

Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest? C.J. Roberts would be

that person. Not sure how new this author is but the author is new to me.

Fiona: What are your current projects? My current project is the Wildcat trilogy. Book

one will be out later this month and I also am looking into a re-release of Hazed and

Chained.

Fiona: Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members. My

friends are the ones who also kept me going, who always believed in my writing ability.

Fiona: Do you see writing as a career? Absolutely. Writing is definitely a career to me

and not a hobby.

Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

I would change some things in Hazed and Chained. I would put more detail in the sex

scenes and make the book a little longer.

Fiona: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? Just from all the

compliments on my writing and loving to read from such a young age. My parents said I

was reading entire books at two years old so I think it was inevitable that books would be

a big part of my future.

Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us? My current book Wildcat

shows us Dom Sebastian attempting to train Ashley, a former dominatrix into

submission. He is tough, cocky and a little arrogant but develops a soft spot in his heart

for his sexy sub.

Fiona: Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? Honestly

writing has never been all that challenging to me. It’s always been fun. The most

challenging thing is meeting deadlines and goals.

Fiona: Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

Gillian Flynn is my favorite but I also like James Patterson. Gillian writes dark books

with shock factor and James Patterson adds some good mystery into his books.

Fiona: Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)? I have yet to travel much

due to my writing but I’ve currently been setting up some public appearances so it looks

like I’ll be on the road quite a bit soon.

Fiona: Who designed the covers? I don’t currently have a cover designer though I’ve

spoken with a few in recent weeks.

Fiona: What was the hardest part of writing your book? The hardest part of writing Hazed

and Chained was writing Ray’s character. I could never be as sick and twisted as he was.

The hardest part of writing Wildcat is honestly that it’s tough to write erotica without

stopping because you are horny.

Fiona: Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? What I learned

from writing any of my books is that there are still a lot more readers out there than I

thought, mostly female. This is definitely a good thing considering the spelling I’ve seen

in some text messages by the younger generation of late.

Fiona: Do you have any advice for other writers? Read a lot and write a lot. Observe your

surroundings. Pay attention to facial features of people without staring at them. Pick up

on conversations around you. These are things you could use in your books.

Fiona: Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers? Make sure to

leave reviews. That’s how we really make our living so we can support our own families.

Fiona: Do you remember the first book you read? The first book I read was called,

“Whole stole the Wizard of Oz.” It was about kids who searched for a library book that

had gone missing.

Fiona: Other than writing do you have any hobbies ? My hobbies are sports. I love being

athletic. I play tennis and coach baseball when I can. I try to stay active.

Fiona: What TV shows/films do you enjoy watching? I love the Blacklist and Law and

Order: SVU as well as King of Queens. My favorite movies are Back to the Future,

Speed and Cruel Intentions.

Fiona: Favorite foods / Colors/ Music I like Steak, Meatloaf and Tacos. Favorite color is

Orange. Kid Rock is my favorite singer/songwriter

Fiona: If you were not a writer what else would you like to have done? Baseball player

for sure.

Fiona: Do you have a blog/website? If so what is it? Yes. I’m on Tumbler. http://

Synopsis

 

Finding Our Way Bad things happen in threes.

For Nora Jamison, this couldn’t be truer. Her grandmother just passed away, her best friend is in trouble, and she just hit a man with her car. It cannot possibly get any worse. Wrong! Nora quickly finds herself thrust into a world she never knew existed. Werewolves are real, and they are after her and the mysterious stranger she hit. Running for her life, she ends up on a ranch in Texas. Stuck in a new, unfamiliar world, she gets to know the man that helped rescue her. Daniel McKinley is different than anyone Nora has ever met. Despite his rough exterior, Nora can tell there is more to him than meets the eye. However, Nora has a tiny secret of her own. She can only hope that when Daniel learns it he will still look at her the same way.

Daniel McKinley has always been a loner. His father trained him to be an alpha through brute force—not through people skills. Now that Daniel’s older brother is alpha instead, he has become even more of an outcast. Despite their differences, the wolf in him craves the acceptance of his brother—his alpha. While trying to prove himself, he is involved in an accident that draws a human into the line of fire. Unwilling to see an innocent hurt by the enemy wolves after him and his pack, he vows to protect her. Nora is kind, caring, and strong. His past is dark and he fears if she learns too much it will scare her away. Although, he tries to keep his distance, there is something about her that draws him in. Can he keep Nora safe and earn his brother’s trust in the process?

I have for a long time entertained the idea of writing my own original piece and did start when I was about seventeen, but life, as always got in the way, then recently thanks to a prompt for a friend and fellow author as well as my parents I decided to pick up the pen so to speak and give it another go.So I did.This page is my way of letting you all know Friends, Family, Readers, whomever, exactly what my crazy mind is conjuring up; so, keep tuned in, for updates and information on all my work, past, present, and future.Oh and feel free to ask me anything and everything, your twisted little minds can think of, I always need new ideas.TTFNRick.Oh and if you have questions or anything you want to ask me drop me a message either on here, my blog or at my Designated email ricky.author_cooper@yahoo.co.uk

5 Stars for Unique Writing!
~This is not a Romance~
A Zinger of a Zombie Apocalypse at it’s finest!
The author did a superb job of extending my reading genre. The vivid images his writing style brought to my mind had me cowering in fright in the dark of night. I clearly heard every haunting moan, scream and groan these ‘creatures’ emitted throughout the story. The gore was extreme, the blood, guts, grime and military scenes were sick, gross and absolutely intense. This story had me locking my doors, securing my windows, shutting my closet door tight and looking under the bed before closing my eyes. I loved every jaw dropping word he wrote. 
the village
Baker is definitely my new BBF, this heroic soldier is completely honorable, fearless, and unstoppable. I love how he shows his feelings in the battle to contain this atrocious infected strain and with every loss he endures of his fallen comrades. I enjoyed reading about Baker’s team and each of their characters and attributes.

I’m eagerly awaiting the return of my ‘Cherry’ and all his charms!

Abby Weeks is a romance and erotica author. She writes about strong, daring women in dangerous, sexually charged situations.
Biography
I write stories about my own fantasies. They’re not to everyone’s taste but I’m a real person, a nice girl, and I’m honest about my sexual inclinations. If you’d like to give me a try, I would be happy to have you on board. You are always welcome to contact me at: abby@type-writer.net

I’m thirty-two years old and live in a small town in beautiful Ontario with my two dogs. I was born and raised here. I went to school in Montreal and Ottawa. I studied French, Women’s Studies and Literature but wasn’t the most focused student. I took creative writing classes in school but it wasn’t till I got back to my hometown and was working as a waitress that I really started writing. I’m an only child and both my parents passed away when I was quite young. I do feel a bit alone in the world.

I like to write about strong, adventurous women. They are the kinds of women I like to imagine I am, or at least would be if I had the courage. The protagonist usually has a difficult past or family life and is up against the world in some way. My stories are fairly graphic and erotic, but I also include a good story, strong character development, and a genuinely full and engaging reading experience.

The sexual themes I write about all come from my own, private fantasies. They are the kinds of things I imagine happening to me, even though I know they are unlikely in real life.

stumbles upon a case of identity theft right in her own backyard. Darcy jumps
into the fray headfirst to prove she can hang with the big boys.

But it’s not just to hang…nope, she’s chasing reward money.

Tapping her band of misfit brothers for help, she turns Valley upside down
trying to unearth the criminals. Problem is, the cloak and dagger goes
high-octane, and she raises the bar on “crazy” in the process.

Bullets ring out…dead bodies appear…and Darcy rubs shoulders with the ultimate
sociopath. In the midst of murder and mayhem, will she finally follow her heart
or build a fortress of lies around it? Will she even get the chance?

Excerpts:

 

I squeaked open the door to the adjacent
bedroom and was met with an empty twin bed. A rumpled white sheet draped the bed, no comforter. Pivoting around, I did a quick scan of the gray carpet, found nothing overly suspicious or weird, so moved onto the closet.

By that time, Vinnie nipped at my heels. “I’m getting a funny feeling, Dolce. We need to roll.”

My thoughts exactly. But when I opened the walk-in closet and stepped inside, no way in the world would I ever have been prepared for what I’d find. There’s an idiom about skeletons in your closet. Trouble was, the skeleton I’d discovered still had meat on it.

“Vinnie,” I whispered, “there’s a skeleton in the closet.”

Vinnie munched on his moon pie behind me; I heard the crinkle of the wrapper. “Ha-ha, Dolce. Is this some metaphorical test I’m supposed to decipher?”

“No, like a real skeleton that I think is a man.”

Vinnie took one step inside and dropped the f-bomb. Then added mommy-effer.

“Do you smell that?” I asked.

Vinnie’s inhale was audible. “Yeah, smells like O-positive to me.” Loosely rolled in a faded navy comforter were the remains of a man. He lay facedown with a small patch of flesh and short black hair still clinging to his head. This wasn’t the only dead body I’d encountered, and neither was the body of a man I’d found in a dumpster last spring. I, eh, well…I found a head…buried in the sand on vacation in Orlando. I had a habit of stumbling upon dead bodies and/or body parts. Something the majority of people could go a lifetime and not have happen once, I’d experienced one too many times to count. The smell wasn’t as bad as bodies that’d recently expired, but it smelled like death, nonetheless. Death has a peculiar smell you never forget. Covering my nose with my hand, I lifted the tip of my boot and kicked the blanket back, starting at the naked feet. Black boxers framed femurs that barely had any flesh left, and a plain white t-shirt adorned the crumpled torso. A vintage concert t-shirt from The Minstrel Cramps, a local all-girl band popular back in the day, lay beside the corpse’s head. A memory played in the back of my mind I immediately tried to erase.

A memory that’d haunted me since I was nine years old.

I had a decision to make. I could call the police, or I could dive onto the car. Without another thought, I dove spread eagle onto the hood, a whole lot of don’t-die-a-virgin giving me flight.

Inhaling deeply, I found my calm, realizing Vinnie and I needed to leave ASAP and phone the authorities. Those plans hit an iceberg because once I joined Vinnie in the front room, I heard a Pfffft. Then another. I was a little slow on the uptake but soon realized the Pfffft was the sound of something striking the couch. Yellowed batting exploded out of a bullet hole in a puff of white smoke.

     Call me a genius, but I didn’t consider this good.

     “Down!” Vinnie roared, launching himself toward me.

     Unfortunately, my legs went moron and glued to the floor. For a moment, I had a flashback of running from a shooter last spring. They say lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place…evidently, it does. My legs felt like rubber, and the room went to a dizzying whirl. Tears welled in my eyes, but I commanded them to dry up. You couldn’t think rationally when you cried. Emotions ruled. I didn’t make the rule; someone else did. Problem was, my tear ducts didn’t comply. I boo-hoo’d like a little girl.

     Vinnie heaved us both off the floor, pitching me his keys I caught in one hand. “Oh, God, Vinnie,” I breathed, adrenaline nearly slicing me in two. This was like a Scarface  shootout, only we didn’t have a gun.

     Vinnie’s eyes glowed black and angry, but he took time to tenderly touch my cheek in an order. “Snap out of it, Dolce. Go. Out the back. I’ll follow.”

     I still couldn’t move.

     When Vinnie whipped off his jacket to do God-knew-what, voices boomed outside as three more gunshots landed on the hardwood floor. The wood splintered into pieces, sawdust pooling like an ant mound. When a sixth shot hit near my feet, I lost my balance and cartwheeled across the floor, landing on my knees. Vinnie snatched me up and shoved me in front of him, clutching my back to his front, acting as a human shield. Praying vehemently he didn’t get struck in 

the mayhem of gunfire, I still was worthless while he kicked out the window and tossed me onto the ground. I landed on all fours, my hands hitting the gravelly dirt of a backyard in need of upkeep. My tights split at the knees, and the air left my body on a hiss. I crawled in an uncoordinated manner like a baby intent on learning a new method of transportation. My eyes blinded with tears, and when I made it around the air conditioning unit, my hands hit something thick and mucousy. Pulling my shaking hand to my eyes, I recognized the red, viscous fluid immediately…blood. Blood that’d partly dried and led me to the body of…oh, God help me… help me.

Thirteen things you didn’t know about AJ Lape
AKA – Ada Miracle Lape

1. I can dislocate my left shoulder on command.

2. My favorite movie is It’s a Wonderful Life…cry like a baby when George Bailey starts yelling, “I want to live again…I want to live again.”

3. I hate clowns and chicken wings … not necessarily in that order.

4. I’m a notorious sleepwalker. It happens when I’m troubled. As far as I can tell, I always have my clothes on.

5. I had an academic scholarship. I know that’s shocking, but looking at homework today, I’m pretty sure I’m tapped out at fifth grade.

6. I like to shoot 9mm guns…look out Target World, every once in a while you have to walk your inner hillbilly.

7. I started running high school track when I was in the sixth grade. Don’t ask me to run now. After two kids, I pee my pants when I walk across the floor.

8. I’m like Rain Man when it comes to fractions.

9. I used to write and record songs. I won Honorable Mentions in the John Lennon Song Writing Contest and Music City Song Festival. Verrrry short career.

10. I’ve cliff-dived off a 40-foot cliff into a lake…wouldn’t recommend it ..that sucker can burn.

11. I’m the only human I know that got turned down twice when trying to adopt handicapped dogs. What the heck…those dogs would’ve loved me.

12. I would’ve been a police officer or journalist if life didn’t land me where I am.

13. I occasionally have the foul mouth of a truck driver … sorry, Mom and Dad. I try to change it. So far, the message hasn’t made it to the execution part of my brain.

He’s No Saint by AJ Harmon.

Goodreads ~ Amazon ~ Barnes & Noble ~ iTunes ~ Kobo

Synopsis

Becoming a priest wasn’t his plan, but when Tyler Oswin suffers a tragic loss, the safety of the church seemed the perfect place to find solace and peace. Now Father Hugh, he works and tries to do good but his carnal nature always seems to get in the way of fully committing to his new profession.

Amy Lansing felt lost as a teenager after her father died and deals with her loneliness by joining the convent. She’s not living – she’s hiding. Holding onto the past is keeping her from dealing with her future and when she meets Father Hugh, her heart starts beating again, despite knowing that there can never be anything more than a friendship between them.

With all that has happened in the past, and the difficulty of their current situation, it seems that neither Tyler nor Amy will find the happily ever after they are both desperately searching for. But love has a way of bringing them together, only to find that his sins from the past will threaten their future.

He’s No Saint is a love story for all who believe in fighting for love. It is a stand-alone novel written by AJ Harmon, author of the best-selling series First Class Novels.

“Phenomenal” and “Breathtakingly beautiful” is how this romance novel has been described by readers.

Excerpt

Charlie was a parishioner that had lived a couple of blocks from St. Mary’s his entire life. He’d grown up in the neighborhood, married a girl he’d known since 1st grade, Ruby, and they settled in the same apartment building as his parents. Charlie and Ruby were inseparable, not blessed with children, but that did not affect their deep and eternal love for one another. Ruby had died many years before after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease, Charlie becoming her caregiver in her final days. Father Casey had known the couple well, but Ruby had passed before Father Hugh had arrived. But Charlie had made an impression and Father Hugh loved to visit with him as often as he could. He was in awe of Charlie’s desire to be reunited with his Ruby… to feel her hand in his and see her smile again. It almost made him believe in love.

On this particular day, Charlie now in a nursing home, the phone rang in the nunnery to tell the Sisters that Charlie was nearing the end. He’d asked to see the new nun… the pretty one, and to have Father Hugh come and hear his final confession. Sister Agnes was heartbroken as she informed Sister Meredith of the request. Father Hugh was also saddened to hear that this would be his last time with Charlie, but quickly changed out of his work clothes and waited for Sister Meredith to accompany him to the nursing home.

They drove in silence the short distance and hurried down the white halls to find Charlie propped up in bed, his breathing labored. Sister Meredith took the old man’s hand in hers as she sat by his bed and smiled down at him.

“I’m glad you came,” Charlie smiled. “I wanted your beautiful eyes to be the last thing I saw on this earth.”

“That’s very kind of you,” she blushed. “I’ll stay as long as you’d like.”

“It won’t be long,” the nurse whispered, looking at the monitors.

With a sacred reverence, Father Hugh performed last rites and eased Charlie’s conscience by hearing his confession, all the while refusing to let go of Sister Meredith’s hand. His hand relaxed slightly as he drifted in and out of consciousness and occasionally had a smile on his lips.

“What do you think he’s thinking about?” Sister Meredith asked.

“No clue,” Father Hugh replied.

“You don’t think he’s excited about going to be with Ruby?”

“I guess he might be,” he shrugged.

“You must believe in heaven,” she gasped.

He didn’t answer straight away. There was a sadness to his expression that made her curious.

“You do believe in heaven, don’t you?” she asked again. “Heaven is where we will live for eternity with our families, our loved ones, our pets.”

“I’m sure you will get to have that,” he acknowledged. “You are a good person who deserves to have a heaven. All good people go to heaven.” Like Melanie, he thought to himself.

“I believe they do,” she agreed.

“Just not me,” he whispered to himself.

Sister Meredith didn’t hear him and tilted her head in thought. “What do you think about hell?”

“There is a hell,” he assured her.

“I know what I’m supposed to think about hell, but some days I wonder if it’s as bad as we’re made to think,” she admitted.

“I’m afraid that hell will be knowing that no one in heaven misses me when I don’t arrive. I’ve been a disappointment to my parents, Father Casey, and to God, and nobody in heaven is gonna miss me.”

“No! You are a good man Father Hugh and I cannot imagine you ever being a disappointment.”

“You don’t know me very well then,” he smirked.

Charlie gasped for air, his final breaths difficult. “Ruby,” he smiled and then he was gone.

The monitors beeped, Charlie’s chest exhaled for the last time and a tear fell from Sister Meredith’s cheek. She smiled as she glanced up at the priest, knowing that Charlie and Ruby were together again… in heaven. “They’re happy again.”

Father Hugh just nodded and they left the nursing home, each of them in their own thoughts. Sister Meredith felt a peace at Charlie’s passing, but Father Hugh felt restless and uneasy. As a priest, it was his job to preach of heaven and set the example of how to get there. As a man, he was sure he had no hope of ever reaching eternal glory and presumed he was headed in the opposite direction.
