ON THE ROCKS

Last Call, #1

Adult Contemporary Romance

Released February 17th, 2014

Sensual couple

Cover designed by Vitalink

Synopsis

He left to travel the world for fame and glory, but only after spurning Gabby Ward and crushing her young heart. Now Hunter Markham has come back home to the sand and salty breeze of the North Carolina Outer Banks so he can open up Last Call, a beach bar nestled among the dunes of the Atlantic.

Gabby Ward is not happy that Hunter has returned. Bitter over his rebuff years before, she’s content to stay far away from him and his dangerously charming ways.

Gabby’s well-schemed plans to ignore Hunter go up in flames when he presents an offer to her that she simply can’t refuse, throwing them together in a common quest to each reach their goals. Working together day in and day out proves to be problematic for Gabby, who soon realizes that the feelings she had for him are still very much alive. Hunter struggles to reach through to Gabby’s cold heart, all while starting a new career away from his life as a top ranked, professional surfer.

What starts out as a mutual business arrangement soon turns into a passion that neither of them can continue to deny.

Hard choices lay ahead for both of them when Hunter is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to return to the pro surfing tour.

Choices that could destroy what they have built or take them further than they ever had dared to hope.

On the Rocks Quotes 
 
“Out of the three of us, she was the only one to graduate. Casey and I both dropped out. But rather than taking a seat on the family throne, she once again thumbed her nose and moved to Nags Head permanently, where she promptly put her inheritance to work by opening the islands’ only no-kill animal shelter, simply called The Haven. She funds it entirely and works tirelessly helping homeless and abused animals have a second chance at life.” 
― Sawyer BennettOn The Rocks
“It’s almost seven AM by the time I make it to the Markham residence in the tiny town of Avon, which sits on Hatteras Island where we all grew up.”

Adult Contemporary Romantic Comedy

Published November 2013 by QuoteStork Media Inc.

Synopsis

After 12 years, 4 months and 1 and 1/2 weeks of marriage, his wife packs up and leaves with their daughter. So he writes an Indie novel. And it becomes a bestseller. Well, sort of.

His fame brings him the lifestyle of a rockstar, and he has the fan mail (i.e. female undergarments, probably clean) to prove it.

But seeing his fame, his wife suddenly believes in marriage counseling. Their homework: to create something beautiful for each other.

So he writes Our Story, his literary secret-weapon that will win his wife back. But in the process he discovers that true love is more than just ticking the right boxes on a checklist. It starts with… well… }i{ .

*(Note: the f-word is used 231 times in various formats throughout this story. Read with caution. (According to Amazon).*

Excerpt 1

“I lied to you,” I told her. “About how all I ever wanted was to be loved.”

“Why?” Emma asked, her eyes tightening at the sting of my admission.

“Because the truth is that all I ever wanted was…”

“Tell me!”

“All I ever wanted was to be loved by [YOU].”

She rolled her eyes and turned away, as if trying to hide her grin from me. I knew she couldn’t block me from her heart forever, and her reaction proved it.

“So, can we [make love] now?” I asked, and that was when she punched me.

“Not a chance, dork.”

Excerpt 2

I headed upstairs with Emma on my heels. She commented on the family photos on the stairway wall, the color of the second floor landing, the carpet’s thick under-padding, the layout, how clean my house was (yes, I spent all day yesterday tidying up and figuring out how to turn the vacuum cleaner on). I chalked up her chatter to nervousness.

“Here’s Evelyn’s room.” I pushed the door open and waved her inside.

“I can’t sleep in that,” she said, pointing to the Barbie-racecar toddler bed.

I shrugged. “Then I guess you’ll have to cuddle up next to me in mine.”

Excerpt 3

“I’m not [sleeping with] you,” she told me.

I didn’t believe the words because her eyes told a different story; sure they were closed, but that didn’t mean anything. I placed her gently on the bed, made sure her head was cozy on the pillow, then told her I’d be right back.

“Don’t leave me,” she slurred. She spoke slowly, the alcohol running thick through her veins by now.

So I cozied up on the bed beside her.

“Hold my hand, Morgan.”

I slid my fingers between hers (they fit perfectly), watching her while the alcohol slowly robbed what was arguably my best and only chance at getting laid before flying back home tomorrow.

f80f8b7310190ad8976f73.L._V398435052_SY470_Publication Date: December 10, 2012

Katie discovers an unlocked iPhone in the back seat of a taxi. But instead of turning it in to the driver as lost, she decides to keep it for herself.

Outside of the usual clutter you would expect to find on a smartphone, what captures Katie’s interest is the single conversation she finds on the phone’s secure text messaging service, a three-month dialogue between a woman with an uncertain past named Christine and a single, eligible man named Jake.

From Strangers to Soulmates in 90 Days

What starts out as a message intended for someone else ends up being the beginning of a relationship more powerful than anything Christine or Jake have ever experienced.

But nothing ever turns out to be as good as it initially seems and their histories slowly reveal details and past lovers that threaten to derail their humble quest for love.

Forgotten In The Back Seat of a New York City Taxi

Can Christine and Jake overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles, doubts and secrets that endanger their love?

If so, why would such a relationship get forgotten in the back seat of a New York City taxi?

Presented in a Format Unlike Any Other You Will Find

Follow Katie as she reads through the 3 months of conversations that form The Christine + Jake Affair and provide the foundation for the Textual Encounters Trilogy.

Review by ~Syrina
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA


4 roses for originality and a bit of romance

What a great little read, I gobbled it up in one sitting. The characters were real, their conversations witty, humorous, catty, and sarcastic. In the end it left me wanting a “Morgan” of my very own.

Morgan is a man going through the motions of being an average corporate accountant making ends meat in a loveless marriage. In a blink of an eye, he loses everything, his wife, his child, his habit and his routine.  It wakes him up to what his life has become, what he has become.

Morgan is newly divorced and more than a little lonely.   He proceeds to get “tech-savvy”, and gains insight into the social media world.  He needs female companionship and most definitely some form of human contact.  He buys an iPhone hoping to experience such a relationship by text messaging.

“The last time I’d been single, folks didn’t send text messages – not unless they had a label maker.  And even then, it never got you laid.  Not like text messages today.”

Morgan picks up a recommended book in this particular field, reads it and immediately knows it‘s bogus.  It does not work.  The only thing he got out of it was that any idiot can write a bookSo he does, he writes a novel based entirely on text messaging.  Sextual Encounters went viral and with the help of Social Media today, his story was deemed ‘Brilliant, Amazing, and Unique’, a “Brilliant Love Story.”  Within a month it hit the Top 100 list of Amazon’s Romance Bestsellers.

3 hearts for couples seeking love

This is how Morgan meets his biggest fan, Emma.  She sends him a fan-based package and Morgan feels an instant connection, or at least his body does.  She was exactly the kind of burn he wanted to feel and the perfect distraction he needed.  Included is a message that feels like fate for it was written by an authentic label maker.

Dear Morgan.  My name is Emma.  I am not looking for a relationship, but I think we should write a book together.  I am in the process of getting published and I think we can make beautiful literature together.  ~Emma

}i{ is their secret code for when they want to get their sexting on privately for Emma is in a loveless marriage herself.  Still they feel a connection even though its clear Morgan is trying to piece his family back together.  He starts another novel, Our Story, a romantic novel about the everlasting love of Oliver and Olivia, even as Emma and Morgan become closer and closer.

I’m good with numbers, not so much with words.  You’re not my words, Emma… But you’re my numbers.  You’re all of my numbers… You’re my infinity.”

2 teardrops for drama & emotional turmoil

In the end, I think Morgan and Emma truly fell for one another, however there are certain things in our lives that need to have some sort of closure in order to start over or start anew.  Morgan is struggling to find happiness and forgiveness, he tries to fill an empty void through writing, fame, and an exciting new romance.  Emma is still uncertain about the direction of her own failing marriage and trying to raise her own family.

“I loved you for everything.  Your successes and intelligence as well as your failures.  I loved you just like you said you loved me, but I loved you more.  I wrote a novel about you – Oliver, Olivia, it’s all you, one hundred percent you.”

“Morgan, I love you.  No matter what happens, I will always love you… And because of this love, I will always be waiting for you.  I’ll be there, always waiting, always for you.”

So, does Morgan make it as an exciting Best Seller Author?  Does he find his True Love? Does he get his HEA, or does he find he must choose his own path and make his own healing memories.

Thanks Morgan Parker for a very real story about Love, Hate, Divorce, and Life ever after.

Dom Wars by Lucian bell cover

Erotic Romance Genre

Synopsis

Lucian Bane’s inner Dom is out of control and hungry for things he can’t name. When he signs up for Dom Wars, he meets Tara who is naive to the BDSM world. Her reckless dominance and puritan heart fascinate him. But when he discovers the pain in her past, it unleashes his true Dom within.

Excerpt 1

(Still in Edits, Credit Debi Price)

“How long are you going to study it?” I watched her chew on her thumb nail while pacing nude before me, desperately searching the BDSM to do list in her hands. She was down to the nitty-gritty. She’d bound my hands and feet wide for the Bondage assignment (although I was sure she’d done it for her own safety) and now all that remained was choosing Sadism.

I allowed my gaze to devour every inch of her delectable preoccupied body. She was about to get what she clearly needed for the past ten years. “Just know, when it’s my turn… I’m choosing forced orgasm for you, love.”

She stopped pacing and turned to me, her spine erect. But where oh where was the challenge in her eyes?

Dominance hummed through my body and brought a joyous curve to my lips. “I’m going to imprison you in pleasure. Until you’re crying. Until you’re begging. Until your well kept secrets are on fire and dripping down your thighs. I’m going to crush your sexy resistance with my lips and tongue. And I’m going to be right at your scorching mouth, eating up the sounds of your mind blowing orgasm until you say it– no, until you scream it. Lucian. Lucian Bane. That’s what I want you to scream while I milk the ecstasy from your pretty little soul.”

Excerpt 2

I didn’t know true bondage until I kissed her and she wrapped my soul in chains. I’d never tasted true masochism until her lips left mine.

Author Bio

I’m an Ineffable Dom. That just means, do yourself a favor and please don’t try to describe me or fit me into your categories. Complicated Dom, Intricate Dom, and Confounding Dom work too.

I love very much the soft side of a woman. Not just her body, but everything on the inside– her passion, her intelligence, her convictions, her delicate tenderness. But the one fetish that might be a part of what makes me an Ineffable Dom is that I love her strengths. I love a woman that isn’t afraid to look me in the eyes and say ‘make me’.  But I need it to be real, not staged, not pretended. She has to be a fighter at her core the way I’m a Dom at my core. I want an equal that is willing to come hard against me in every sense of the word, exhaust me. I want her so deep inside me that we’re lost in each other. I want her to never doubt that I will always use my power to adore her, protect her, liberate her. I don’t want a woman I can break, or overpower, or exercise my dominance over, I want a woman I can come undone with. I want a woman I can jump off the cliff with into that abyss of holy hell, this is beyond me, beyond my control. The greatest fear of most people is losing themselves or unravelling their roots. My greatest fear is not finding a woman I can take that plunge with. Yes, it’s a huge risk. That’s the yin and the yang of it. And while the risk titillates my Dom, it’s the ineffable fruit of that risk that moves him. He knows he has to have it. He knows he’s supposed to have. And he’s prepared to dominate for it.

I think there are many men like myself, and I hope my writing will be a map for them. A map for women as well, to let them know Doms like this exist. I’d like to call them out of the woodwork. Help men join with their natural inner Doms in a way that I think is one of the most fulfilling experiences there are. I want to challenge them all to go for the complete power exchange with a woman, but don’t be a coward and not give the same that they demand or expect. And consider that when you give one hundred percent of yourself to a person, there is no more of you to give away. You now belong to them the way they belong to you.

Inner Doms are dogs that need a master to train them. I once bowed to my Dom’s reckless and tireless desires, but when I gained control, he bowed to my will. The transformation made me into what I am today. What many would call an Ineffable Dom. But its equal term in the Vanilla world, in my opinion, is a real man.
