The Will to Love by Selene Chardou COVER REVEAL

    The Will to Love Cover
    “I wasn’t looking for love, only a good time and a way to tour the world with a rock band when he came along and hit me like a hurricane. Nothing could have prepared for me for the complexity that was Will Cullen. He hid a secret that would devour me whole and spit me out. The only problem I had was how did I let go when I decided to give my heart to the very man I would never be able to control and who would always be just beyond my reach?” – Laurel Munsen

    Will Cullen has always been comfortable in his own skin, even it was behind the scenes as the bass player for Scarlet Fever. He’s always known he was gay and accepted his sexuality even if he couldn’t be out and proud as a member of one of the most popular rock bands in the world.

    Laurel was supposed to be a diversion, a beard to hide behind while he and his lover, drummer Grant MacMullen, continued their hot and heavy relationship. Grant breaks his heart and admits there can never be a future between them.

    It is Laurel who picks up the pieces and although he knows what they have together is wrong and conforming to society’s standards of what love supposed to be, how can he rectify his strong attraction and desire for men while he is falling in love with a woman?

    Both Laurel and Will learn the fluidity of human emotions and together, they gather the strength and courage to live life, understand each other and love with heart, body, mind and soul.

    Note: This story is about a homosexual man who happens to fall in love with a heterosexual woman but it does not negate his homosexual status nor is the author implying sexuality is a choice; rather that most of the time, we don’t and cannot choose the person we fall in love with and decide to give our heart and soul.

    An Unplanned Lesson by Beth Rinyu Blog Tour

    Nicole Morgan, the new
    second grade teacher at Pineview Elementary school, has it all together in the
    classroom; it’s her personal life that she can’t find peace with. Unable to let
    go of the guilt that she is harboring from her past, she punishes herself by
    running from all potential relationships.
    Her patience is put to the
    test when Dailan O’Maley the obnoxious but very sexy uncle of one of her students
    enters her life. She slowly cracks away at Dailan’s crude, crass exterior when
    they are forced to work together for the sake of his nephew. The two of them
    learn a lesson in love that neither had planned as they discover that the guilt
    they are hiding deep inside isn’t the only thing they have in common.
    Unbeknownst to her, he holds more than just the key to her heart.

    Ever since I can remember, I
    have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being
    able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the
    stroke of a pen – or in today’s world a touch of the keyboard.
    My life is not as
    interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life
    is? I was born and have lived in New Jersey my whole life. I’m a mom of twin
    teenage boys, a teenage stepson, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an
    identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of Calgon! I am married
    to a wonderful guy – but we’ll keep that between us, I don’t want him getting a
    big head!
    “An Unplanned
    Life” the sequel/prequel to “An Unplanned Lesson” will be
    releasing on 11/7/13 and I already have a vested interest in the characters of
    my next novel  “A Cry For Hope”
    releasing some time in 2014…..stay tuned for details!

    Teaser one:
    The waitress came over to
    take our order and I couldn’t help but notice Dailan checking her out when she
    walked away. “You know that’s just wrong,” I commented.
    “What?” he asked, clearly
    aware to what I was referring.
    “The way you look at women
    like they’re sex objects.”
    He rolled his eyes at me.
    “You know,I like that girl that I met at the bar that night better than the
    uptight school teacher.”
    “Good, ‘cause that girl that
    you met in the bar doesn’t exist,” I said.
    “Oh I betcha if that girl
    had a few drinks she would come back out,” he said with a smirk.
    I looked over, forgetting
    that Ryan was even there. He was coloring the picture on the back of his
    placemat, not paying any mind to the bantering going on between me and his
    uncle. I picked up a crayon and began coloring with him in an effort not to
    make any more conversation with his uncle. I finally looked up when I could
    feel him staring at me.
    “What?” I asked in
    He was laughing and trying
    to play innocent. I had to admit that he looked absolutely adorable at that
    particular moment with his cute boyish grin.
    “Why are you staring at me?”
    I asked.
    “Because I think you’re
    hot,” he said as he chewed on his straw and his smile became even wider. Ryan
    started to giggle, never taking his eyes from his coloring.
    I pursed my lips and shook
    my head. “What, are you twelve?” His only response was the arrogant smirk that
    I had become so acquainted with over the past few months. “You know what – why
    did I even agree to come out with you tonight? Oh wait—that’s right, I didn’t
    agree, you just took it upon yourself to barge into my classroom and demand
    that I go,” I said, not finding any humor in his immature behavior.
    “Do you always take demands
    like that from a man, darlin’? If so, I think I need to get you in the
    bedroom,” he said as he rubbed the scruff on his cheek.
    I couldn’t take his
    obnoxious behavior anymore. I shook my head and shot him a dirty look before
    giving him a swift kick in the knee.
    “Ouch, that wasn’t very
    nice,” he said as he rubbed his knee under the table.
    “Keep it up and I’ll aim
    just a little higher.”
    “Then that would be your
    “Oh, I’m sure it wouldn’t
    be,” I snapped.
    Ryan seemed unfazed by it
    all as he continued to color. I realized now exactly where Ryan got his
    colorful vocabulary – from the immature, arrogant male chauvinist sitting
    across from me. Did I mention incredibly sexy as well?
    Teaser #2
    I sat at my desk, waiting
    for my students to pile in. Monday morning at 8:58 am had to be the most
    dreaded time of the week for any teacher. I got up to greet the children as
    they started to arrive with the walkers/car riders first, then each individual
    busload. The silence that filled the air just a few short moments ago was now
    filled with laughter, gasps, singing, and every other sound in between.
    I paid particular attention
    to Ryan, who came walking in with Kyle, another little boy in my class with
    whom Ryan was becoming close friends. It made me happy to see Ryan starting to
    form relationships with his classmates. He was looking absolutely adorable
    wearing a black ski jacket and a black winter hat. He was bogged down by his
    backpack and another bag that he was holding in his hand. He walked over to my
    desk, quickly taking the backpack off his back. I grabbed the other bag that he
    was holding to help him out.
    “These are for you,” he said,
    pointing to the bag.
    I looked at him, puzzled, as
    I opened the bag to find two cookie tins. I slowly removed the lid from one of
    the tins to find layers of perfectly formed gingerbread men, with all their
    body parts intact.
    “Did you make these, Ryan?”
    I asked with a smile.
    He nodded, looking very
    proud of himself. “Well, me and my uncle did.” He sighed as if he was
    displeased with something.
    “What’s wrong, Ryan?”
    “Miss Morgan, my uncle said
    a lot of words on the inappropriate list yesterday when he was making those. I
    tried to remind him every time, but then he burnt his hand when he took them
    out of the oven and he started saying words that I never even heard
    before,  but I think they were
    inappropriate. I told him to use the potholder, but he doesn’t listen.”
    I smiled and shook my head
    just imagining the words that were spewing from his mouth.
    “Miss Morgan, is that f-word
    still inappropriate when you say Mother before it?”
    I looked at Ryan and nodded.
    “Oh, then he really did say
    a lot of inappropriate things,” Ryan said with disappointment.

    Excerpts (Please choose one)

    Option one-
    “Just kiss me, Madison,” Hunt suggested huskily, pressing his aroused body against hers.  “If you don’t feel anything, we’ll pretend this conversation of ours never happened.”
    “Really?” Madison breathed, his lips so close to hers she could almost taste him.
    “Really,” he whispered back, his lips grazing hers as his body tightened painfully, reminding him exactly how long it had been since he’d held a warm, willing woman against him.  Quickly covering her mouth with his, he captured her soft moan as he aggressively thrust his tongue against hers.  Weaving his fingers through her silky hair, he drew her closer, angling his head to deepen their kiss.
    Burying her fingers in his shirt as she returned his kiss, she sighed as his tongue twirled around hers and danced sensuously inside her mouth.  God, he tasted like heaven, a blend of coffee and male, intoxicating her as surely as any bottle of wine ever had.  It was heady and sinful, this power he wielded over her.  She felt his arms tighten, and her body automatically softened around his, her soft curves cradling his hard ridges.
    “Oh, damn,” she whispered breathlessly when he released her lips long enough to form coherent thought.  Already, his mouth had descended against her neck, his touch blazing a path of destruction against her painstakingly-honed self-control.  Her mind did battle with her body as he bit gently at her throat and stroked her heavy breast with one capable hand.
    Belatedly, she realized that this war had been won as soon as he had set his lips to hers.

    Bonus! Teaser from WIP – Stranded in Paradise
    Caught in a sensual storm as the effects of Dave’s familiar kiss flooded through her body just as Ethan’s tongue tortured her tightened nipples, Tiffany made a desperate sound in the back of her throat.  These two powerful men were all hers for the night.  That single thought was enough to make her pussy convulse.  “I need to cum,” she whimpered between frantic kisses.  “Ethan, David, please,” she begged, desperately tangling her fingers in their hair and tugging.  “Please, boys!  Let me cum!”

    Turning his heated gaze on Ethan, Dave smirked.  “What do you say, Sweet Thing?  Do we wanna give this lovely lady the cock she’s begging for?”


    One Night With Him by K.S. Smith COVER REVEAL

    Larson has been dealt her fair share of tragedy, but each time she has come out
    on top.  Her heart is callused, but she
    still has hope. She may be the last one of her sorority sisters to still be
    single, but she knows Mr. Right is out there. Reagan is ready to move forward
    with her life when the time is right, or so she thinks, unfortunately when love
    is staring her straight in the face she keeps finding ways to hide from it.
    last thing Cole Conrad is looking for is commitment.  He is set in his bachelor ways and has no
    intentions of leaving them.  Having any

    playing by his rules, until he meets Reagan Larson, and for the first time

    he wakes up feeling alone and used.
    K.S. Smith is a twenty seven year old
    aspiring new contemporary romance author with her debut novel, One Night With

    family and friends or dedicating her time to the military through her favorite
    non-profit organization.  

    K.S. Smith was born and raised in
    Tampa, FL and continues to build her life there in her new home with her
    boyfriend of ten years who will hopefully one day put all book boyfriends to
    shame with an out of this world proposal.
