Ryan Kendall is broken. He understands pain. He knows the hand of violence and the ache of loss. He knows what it means to fail those who need you. Being broken doesn’t stop him wanting the one thing he can’t have; Finlay Tanner. Her smile is sweet and her future bright. She’s the girl he grew up with, the girl he loves, the girl he protects from the world, and from himself.

At nineteen, Ryan leaves to join the Australian Army. After years of training he becomes an elite SAS soldier and deploys to the Afghanistan war. His patrol undertakes the most dangerous missions a soldier can face. But no matter how far he runs, or how hard he fights, his need for Finlay won’t let go.

Returning home after six years, one look is all it takes to know he can’t live without her. But sometimes love isn’t enough to heal what hurts. Sometimes people like him can’t be fixed, and sometimes people like Finlay deserve more than what’s left.

This is a story about war and the cost of sacrifice. Where bonds are formed, and friendships found. Where those who are strong, fall hard. Where love is let go, heartache is born, and heroes are made. Where one man learns that the hardest fight of all, is the fight to save himself.

Teaser time!!!!!

Later that morning after their workout and shower, Jake fell asleep on the couch. Feeling at a loss with nothing but time on his hands, Ryan wandered down the hall towards Fin’s room. She was sitting at a little study nook in the corner, laptop open with one foot resting on her chair. She was wearing a tank top and a little pair of shorts. Leaning up against the doorframe, he couldn’t tear his eyes away from those long, delectable legs.

As though sensing his presence, she turned in her chair. He forced his eyes upwards, catching a sexy flush fill her cheeks at his blatant perusal.

“Morning, Ryan.” She took off her black framed reading glasses and tossed them on the desk.

“Morning, Fin,” he replied.

Against his better judgement, Ryan pushed away from the door and walked farther into the room. Fin hadn’t changed at all and neither had his desire for her. His heart kicked over when she met his eyes. He knew everything he was feeling right now was written all over him, but he couldn’t seem to shut it off.

Her eyelids fluttered closed and she whispered, “Why now?”

Ryan took a deep breath. “I don’t know,” he replied honestly.

He shouldn’t still be feeling this way after so many years. Why was he doing this to her, and to himself? It was better for everyone if he stayed away like he was supposed to.

“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have come. I’ll go stay at the barracks.” He turned to leave.

“Ryan!” she called out. Scrambling out of the chair, she grabbed his arm as he was halfway out the door.

“Fin,” he warned, looking down at her hand pointedly.

She took a step closer and he breathed her in, her scent like jasmine on a hot summer’s day. He was surprised when he looked into her eyes and saw anger burning hotly in their depths.

“Six years, Ryan. Do you know how hurt I was, each day passing by and getting nothing—not even a note or an email? I didn’t just lose you. I lost my brother too. Both of you left me, and I was okay with that. I understood that this was what you needed to do, so I moved on. I built a life that doesn’t include you. That was what I had to do.” She paused and raised a shaky hand to cup his cheek. “I’d have given you my entire heart if you’d only asked, but it’s not yours now. It’s not yours.”

Ryan closed his eyes, agony for losing what was never his rose in his chest until he felt strangled by it. He placed his hand over hers, holding it there until she tugged it away.

“You’re right,” Fin told him. “You should stay on the barracks … but I don’t want you to. Damn you, Ryan,” she whispered fiercely. “I don’t want you to.”

Ryan used his bulk to crowd her against the wall until there was no room for her to move. Leaning one hand against the wall, he grabbed her hip with the other. Her breathing rose rapidly and he leaned in, ducking his head until their mouths hovered a mere breath apart.

“Why can’t I force myself to leave?” He rested his forehead against hers and closed his eyes. “I hurt too. For six years I fought every day not to think of you, and I lost, because every day you were all I could see. You were the best thing in my life—so sweet and innocent, and so goddamn tempting.” His hand strayed from her hip and slid down to grip her ass. He swallowed the groan. “I stayed away so you could move on.”

Kate McCarthy Bio!!!

REVIEW – The Devil’s Kiss Trilogy by Gemma James

DevilsKissCover“Who am I, Kayla?”

 

I met his gaze–maniacal eyes possessing me–and shuddered. My heart feared him, but the gate of my sexual need was manned by him, owned by him. And he knew it.

 

“You’re my Master.”

 

Book Description:

 His ultimatum

 

Kayla Sutton faces a question no mother wants to face: what would you do to save your daughter? Broke and desperate, she siphons thousands from the company she works for to pay for her daughter’s life-saving treatment, but when Gage Channing discovers her theft, she is shocked to learn that her domineering boss has no intention of turning her over to the police. Instead he issues an ultimatum–submit to him, or go to jail.
 
Enslaved by the devil
 
As her daughter’s life hangs in the balance, Kayla must dig deep to find the strength to fully submit, to travel down the path of pain and pleasure. But when her past catches up to her, prompting a free fall into forbidden territory with a man she once fiercely loved, she knows her only recourse is to come clean about her transgression and beg her Master’s forgiveness . . . only she never imagined he’d have such a horrifying punishment awaiting her.
 

Retribution isn’t so black and white

She faced sexual servitude in Ultimatum. In Enslaved she was seduced into craving it. Now she must find the strength to either accept the part of her that craves him still, or walk away for good . . .
 

Includes all three novellas in the DEVIL’S KISS TRILOGY:

 ULTIMATUM
ENSLAVED
RETRIBUTION

 

NOTE TO READERS: THE DEVIL’S KISS TRILOGY is a novel with a BDSM edge and contains material that is only suitable for adult readers. If dark and edgy erotic fiction isn’t your kind of read, you might not enjoy this story. Approximately 52,000 words.
 
My thoughts:
 
This book is hard-hitting!!  I really enjoyed it and had a hard time putting it down, but your head will be SPINNING by the end.  I’m not sure we know who to root for and I DEFINITELY can’t wait to get my hands on the 4th in the series!!  The way everyone is interconnected kept my jaw dropping constantly throughout the book.  Did I mention the book is H-O-T hot?!?!  Keep in mind this is a DARK book so if you are uncomfortable with the idea of pain with your pleasure, this is NOT the book for you. 
 
I can tell you that you will be just as torn as Kayla was throughout the book.  If you can handle the subject matter this is a DON’T MISS kind of book for sure.  I was on the edge of my seat and could hardly put the book down!

REVIEW – Shattered and Shaken by J. Bailes

Shattered & Shaken Cover18+ Mature Audience Only

Allie Anderson has encountered more heartache than any one person deserves. She’s lost her father to cancer, her brother to war, and the love of her life –Wyatt – took her most prized possession and vanished without a trace. She’s left crushed and heart-broken.

Blake, Allie’s best friend, is everything she needs; he’d give her the moon if she asked for it, but there’s one problem – he wants Allie entirely. How can Allie give herself to anyone when she’s not sure there’s enough left of her heart to give away?

Allie’s life begins to fall into place. Her heart begins to heal. Being happy is no longer a foreign emotion. That is until the man who broke her years ago returns, shattering her fragile heart all over again.

Allie soon discovers that hearts are like broken glass; you can put it back together again, but it will never be the same.

 SS Teaser 3My Thoughts:

This book really grabs you from the very first page.  You can feel Allie’s pain as she simply tries to survive from day-to-day.  I loved her best friends, Sophie and Blake, and how they supported her and never let her wallow for too long…..

I can’t even begin to describe when Wyatt comes back….You will NOT regret picking this book up!  It will grab you from page one and not let go until the very end!

 Book Description:

The Great Recession. Reality TV. Luxury cosmetics. And a basset hound named Botox. What do all these things have in common?

They’re all essential story components in BEAUTY SECRETS, a sexy romantic comedy novel, written in a style best described as “Jennifer Weiner meets E. L. James.” 

Amanda Brown is a high-flying cosmetics executive for Revina Corporation, the oldest and most venerable cosmetics company in America. She comes from a good “old money” family, she went to Swarthmore, and she lives in a beautiful penthouse apartment in NYC’s Meatpacking District. But she’s only successful on the surface—-like many New Yorkers, she’s also financially overextended. Her parents are dead, her trust fund is gone, and when the Great Recession hammers her company, like millions of people across America she suddenly finds her job hanging by a thread.

Enter George Watson, a hedge-fund manager and self-made man from the Midwest who swoops in from Indiana to rebuild Revina Corporation from the ground up. Even if he fired everyone else at the company, he decides to keep Amanda on for her expertise. The two of them are from different worlds, and they can’t stand each other. But that doesn’t stop them from having wild no-holds-barred sex on their first meeting—-for reasons neither of them fully understand.

But this is no ordinary corporate takeover, and the unlikely romance between George and Amanda is no ordinary love story. It involves corporate greed, undercover investigative reporters, a sleazy reality TV producer who puts George and Amanda’s sexual relationship on national television, dark family secrets—-and a dog named Botox.




Excerpt:

Amanda took a brief tour of the store. It had been so long since she’d done her own shopping — she even had her groceries delivered, not that she cooked very often — that the very act of trolling the aisles was a novelty. She walked up and down past racks of shampoo and conditioner (not her brand), bins of empty plastic spray bottles (what on earth were those for, anyway?) and the baby-formula section, finally ending up at a display of condoms next to the pharmacy counter.

Condoms?

Amanda stared at the rows of brightly colored packaging in wonder. She’d never considered the idea that people actually went into stores and bought condoms. All the men she had dated over the past several years produced them as if out of thin air when they were already naked in her bed. Her college sorority house had kept a jar of them in the communal bathroom, though she’d never taken any. Condoms were something that just seemed to appear when required, not something that you went out and purchased like batteries and pantyhose.

Her eyes scanned the racks, noticing that some of the selections on offer featured silhouettes of slender, naked couples in sensual embraces, while others had “special vibrating rings for extra fun.” There were even flavored lubricants and serums that promised to add “heat” and “wow factor.”

Wow factor?

Amanda closed her eyes and felt herself blush. What kind of place was this? She felt like she’d stumbled into some kind of X-rated store on the side of the interstate, not a respectable-if-low-end Duane Reed. How on earth was stuff like this sold out in the open? Shouldn’t it be locked behind a counter or something?

Still, she couldn’t help but be intrigued, even a little titillated. Amanda’s sex life was nil at the moment, not that she cared all that much. But one should always be prepared, right? You just never knew what might happen. She selected a magenta box of Trojans with Vibrating Ring For Extra Fun and a tube of Wow Factor. Then she walked straight to the pharmacy counter to pay for them, too embarrassed to be seen carrying the racy items around the store. Once they were safely tucked in a plain white paper bag (stapled shut, for extra privacy), she headed to the front of the store to conduct a little market research.

REVIEW and GIVEAWAY – Cherry Tart by Scarlett Jade

SCARLETT JADE

Holy cow does Scarlett Jade know how to set your hair on fire!  I absolutely LOVED Cherry and all her issues……and Kellan *sigh*

Book description:

Cherry Kilgore is a plus sized beauty who moonlights at a strip club and goes by the name Tart. She dances to have control over her body and chase away her demons, hiding behind a mask, the only thing that makes her feel free. She loves ’em and leaves ’em, never letting a man get too close. Until she meets a man one night that strips her bare with his electric green eyes.

Kellan Morgan is a playboy with a good heart, who loves a woman with real curves.

When he figures out that the woman hiding under her mask is worth revealing, he decides to play her game… A game that is full of pleasure, pain, going the distance and finally getting the ultimate prize…

Realizing that love can truly be found in the darkest of places

My thoughts:

cherrytartSeriously the heat generated in this book between Cherry and Kellan will set you on FIRE!  “Tart” is a love-’em and leave-’em kind of girl who has been burned in the past.  She LOVES to dance but has always been told she’s too big (too tall and too heavy).  She ends up dancing in a strip club (always with her mask) and is one of the biggest draws….

As her carefully constructed world starts to fall, her instinct is to do what she does best…..RUN!  There is so much intensity, passion, pain, and insecurity built into this book you will find yourself panting, crying and laughing through the entire book!

“Kellan ,I don’t attempt seduction. I succeed at it.” –  Cherry

Don’t miss this amazing journey of two AMAZING people!

REVIEW and GIVEAWAY – Market for Love by Jill Elaine Hughes

Heroine Miranda Johansson has had a very bad day.  The strait-laced, ultra conservative  stock-market analyst in Chicago’s LaSalle Street financial district just lost  eighty-seven million dollars of her clients’ money in a massive stock-market  implosion.  And if that weren’t bad  enough, she just had wild, no-holds-barred sex with a complete stranger on her coffee break—-and that complete stranger turns out to be her new boss!  Can Miranda get control of herself without  losing her job, and her mind?  Or will her sexy new boss completely derail her self-discipline, her stock portfolio, and her career?  (Not to mention the sudden intrusion of his  manipulative ex-girlfriend—a scheming, ruthless woman who controls half of  Wall Street.)
 
Will Miranda survive the ups and downs of her new love life,  which is just as volatile and unpredictable as the market?  Or will her new romance go down the tubes  along with the economy?  Only time will  tell.
 

Readers who are down and out about their trashed  investment portfolios can pick up a copy of MARKET FOR LOVE and forget all  about the economic downturn.  Read the  book, and have a little fun peeking inside the unseen world of the sexy young
investment bankers who’ve been pushed to the edge along with everyone else.

My Thoughts:

This book was a highly emotional, roller coaster ride!!  I found myself holding my breath on multiple occasions!  I really enjoyed the characters and their immediate connection.  Regardless of how little they knew about each other, and the fact that he’s the boss, they are so drawn together.

I also enjoyed how the back story unfolded piece by piece, giving just enough to send your blood pressure through the roof!  I won’t spoil the ending for you, but it was nothing but it was exactly as it should be! 😀

$0.99 SALE and REVIEW – Keeping Score by Jami Deise

Keeping Score CoverKeeping Score was such a real-life story!!  It is also ON SALE for $0.99 for a limited time!  The sale ends October 11 so HURRY!!!

I grew up around these traveling baseball teams and I can vouch that some of them were just like this!!  I was nodding and talking out loud to this book…lol.  My husband was pretty sure I had lost it :-)

First the book’s description:

When her 9-year-old son wanted to play summer travel baseball, Shannon had no idea the toughest competition was off the field….

When Sam asks to try out for a travel baseball team, divorced mom Shannon Stevens thinks it’ll be a fun and active way to spend the summer. Boy, is she wrong! From the very first practice, Shannon and Sam get sucked into a mad world of rigged try-outs, professional coaches, and personal hitting instructors. But it’s the crazy, competitive parents who really make Shannon’s life miserable. Their sons are all the second coming of Babe Ruth, and Sam isn’t fit to fetch their foul balls. Even worse, Shannon’s best friend Jennifer catches the baseball fever. She schemes behind the scenes to get her son Matthew on the town’s best baseball team, the Saints. As for Sam? Sorry, there’s no room for him!

Sam winds up on the worst team in town, and every week they find new and humiliating ways to lose to the Saints. And the action off the field is just as hot. Shannon finds herself falling for the Saints’ coach, Kevin. But how can she date a man who didn’t think her son was good enough for his team …especially when the whole baseball world is gossiping about them?

Even Shannon’s ex-husband David gets pulled into the mess when a randy baseball mom goes after him. As Sam works to make friends, win games, and become a better baseball player, Shannon struggles not to become one of those crazy baseball parents herself. In this world, it’s not about whether you win, lose, or how you play the game…it’s all about KEEPING SCORE.

I really enjoyed this book and felt it was very believable.  I think we have all been at the point where we want to stop our mouths from spouting off, but just can’t!  Shannon was such a real person, I wanted to be there for her when she felt she had no one to talk to.  I love the real struggles with trying to decide what to do for her son without stepping on any toes.  I also loved that she listened to her son and knew when to distinguish between hot-headed 9-year-old and true feelings.  :-)
All in all this was a fun read that keeps the story going and will have your mouth dropping open at certain points.  There are quite a few of those “I can’t believe she just said that!” moments that had me laughing out loud.  Grab this book and sit down for a fun, light read!!  Sale ends 10/11/2013!!!!!

SJ Publicity Testimonials

Being able to work with Sarka-Jonae of SJ Publicity is truly a delight. She is a tenacious promoter, a supportive mentor, an enthusiastic cheerleader, and a creative brainstormer. The moment I became a client of hers, we began designing my promotional campaign, and she immediately started working. Sarka has worked tirelessly to get my debut novel out in front of the public, and as a result, IT’S JUST A LITTLE CRUSH became a bestselling book.” Caroline Fardig, It’s Just a Little Crush

“I published my first novel, Swimming Upstream, in November 2012. I spent a long time polishing it and making it perfect, but then after it was published I realized that was only the beginning – I had no real idea how to promote it. I got a lot of reviews and sent the book off to literary agents, but I wasn’t getting very far. Sales were low and I was getting discouraged. I finally hired SJ Publicity, and within a few weeks I was on bestseller lists and had my best sales month ever. I also got a book deal, thanks to Sarka-Jonae. She is easy to work with, tenacious when it comes to helping her clients, and a true professional. I’m continually impressed with her abilities and commitment to all her authors.”Ruth Mancini, Swimming Upstream 

“As a new author, I was not sure how to go about marketing my books, so I hired Sarka-Jonae Miller as my book publicist. She discussed marketing ideas with me, sent out copies of my books to readers to get reviews, contacted newspapers, issued press releases, and helped me set up social media platforms. Through our efforts, she helped me get my first 3 books on multiple Amazon bestseller lists. I recommend Sarka as a book publicist, copy editor, and proofreader.
