Surviving Brooklyn Spotlight


Title: Surviving Brooklyn
Series: Brooklyn Series #1
Author: Elizabeth York
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 15, 2015

Brooklyn Montgomery, daughter of a well-known criminal, just moved into a new apartment. She needed to be closer to downtown because she landed her dream job of becoming an assistant District attorney. Little does she know that the reason for her new job is because a killer is raining down on New York City. The killer is taking out anyone who looks like her, including the last A.D.A., and covering their bodies with thousands of forget-me-nots. Is this a clue to catching the killer or does the killer want to lead Brooklyn to her demise?

Mark Stone, Brooklyn’s childhood friend, is the lead detective in the city. He has been handed the case, but has a limited window until the FBI takes over. While he hunts to find the killer he guards Brooklyn with his life. He knows she has feelings for him, but can the past be overlooked so they can be together after they catch the killer? What happens if they can’t stop the killer in time? Will he catch the killer and capture her heart, or will the final victim be the one he wanted all along, Brooklyn?







I opened to him, and he pressed his body against mine, inhaling the moan that left my lips. All five of my senses were being overloaded by him. I could no longer hear anything but the rapid beating of my heart. I tasted coffee and whipped cream on his tongue as I inhaled his manly sandalwood scent. I looked into his eyes when he pulled away. My body burned with the need to touch him everywhere. 

“Tell me no,” Mark whispered as he dropped to his knees. I watched in fascination while he untied the bow on my drawstring shorts. I shivered as I watched him pull down my shorts, exposing a pair of black lace underwear.

Something new from me

So I've decided to try my hand at Historical Romance.  You see?  I've had these ideas running around in my head for a while now, and I've finally figured out how to incorporate them into something relatively familiar to me.

Here's an UNEDITED excerpt...

When the first soldier died, Emily and Rachel wrapped his body in cloth, and some of the soldiers dug a grave in the family cemetery, and they had a small service for him.  The ones that were able attended, and the Reeves family looked on.   That night, after everyone had gone to bed, Rachel and Emily sat at the kitchen table.  I had become a routine for them.  Most of the time, the just rested and enjoyed each other’s silence, but tonight Rachel let Emily in on her plans.

Emily had stopped doubting her mother’s crazy schemes a long time ago.  When the North had blockaded the Mississippi river, making it impossible to sell their cotton, Rachel hadn’t batted an eyelash, converting everything to corn.  She’d used credit at the general store, and planted the fields with corn instead of cotton, and they’d managed to keep their heads afloat for the two years since, even managing two yields a year to make up for the lack of muscle on their female run, family farm.  
So, even though she was nervous about the Union soldiers on their farm, so far nothing untoward had happened, and Rachel had another plan.

“So, what’s next, Mama?”  She asked, curious to see if her mama actually had a plan, or if she was playing this by ear.

“Well, it was surely serendipitous that these boys showed up when they did.  But we will help them, and they will help us.  We just brought in the last of the harvest, and I’m going to see if I can’t talk a few into staying behind to help with the next yield.  I’ve already talked to Mr. Potter about helping with the planting next week, and he seemed happy to oblige.”

Mr. Potter was the New York corn farmer, and seemed a personable fellow.  A bit older than the others, he seemed thankful for the rest from the grueling pace of soldier’s life. 

“I feel like we’ll lose a few more before the sick ones begin to get better, but in the meantime, we’ll keep feeding them and giving them shelter.  Once they start getting better, we’ll put the ones who are willing to work.  We’ll butcher while they’re here.  The holes in the chicken house needs repairs, and the corn crib needs some better fortification.  There’s always corn to shuck, and chores to do.  We can make this farm profitable before the leave, and then the bankers won’t be able to take it.”

The unasked question had been lurking in Emily’s mind for days now, and she had to ask it.  “What happens when Papa comes home, and the farm is filled with men he’s spent the last four years fighting?”

Rachel’s eyes softened, and she reached for Emily’s hand.  “Your father is a reasonable man.  I’m sure he’s just as ready for the fighting to be over as everyone else.  He would be grateful we’ve been able to keep the farm running all alone.”  Her smile was watery, and Emily almost regretted the question.

“I’m sorry, Mama.  You’re right.”

Chapter eight:
Jamie fell ill last night with a fever and a rash on his chest.  He has the Typhus now, and we’re praying he gets better.  Mama has forbidden any of us to go into his room, and is only allowing me to treat the soldiers.  Some of them are getting better, but some of them are dying.  I’ve been doing my best to organize the well ones and keep them busy, but Isaack has been lurking around, keeping his eye on me, as if waiting for me to break into pieces.  I haven’t yet, but I want to.

It started with Jamie scratching his head, and in typical little boy fashion, being reluctant to bathe.  When Mama insisted everyone take a bath in the kitchen, dragging in the washtub and going through the ritual of oldest to youngest, with Jamie being last, he finally relented after Emily promised to heat him up some fresh water to add into the tub for his bath.

Rachel scrubbed him good, removing all the lice from his hair with the lye soap and a comb.  She’d washed bedclothes earlier in the day, and after Jamie’s skin was red from the thick bristles of the scrub brush, she allowed him to get out.

Her precautions were too late though.  They didn’t know this, but Typhus was spread through lice and other parasites, and by the time Jamie was scratching, he’d been infected.  Four days later, he had a fever and a rash.  A week later, he was hallucinating.  And ten days after his ill-fated fishing trip with the Master Sergeant, Jamie was dead.

He shouldn’t have died.  He was a healthy boy, raised in the sunshine, corn-fed, and robust.  He wasn’t a war-riddled soldier, weakened by fatigue and starvation.  Jamie shouldn’t have gotten sick.
Emily was in a fog as she stood next to her mother by the grave, tiny in comparison to the three soldiers’ graves already there.  A hand fell at her shoulder—Sergeant Major O’Sullivan—but she didn’t acknowledge his presence.  She could only stare at the tiny hole in the ground, and watch the men as they lowered the small hand-made casket into it, sniffling back tears. 

Emily knew these men had seen death—too much death at their own hands.  And they knew that if they hadn’t stopped at the Reeves farm, Jamie would still be running through the corn, fishing at the creek, and tossing rocks into the road.  They knew they had killed him.

One man stood back from the rest, watching the proceedings.  As Emily turned to go, she saw Isaack leaning against a tree in the distance.  His face held a heart-wrenching sadness to it, but it was as if he couldn’t not watch.  He seemed to be forcing himself to attend the boy’s funeral. 

After dropping a small bouquet of baby blue wildflowers into the grave, Rachel turned and wrapped her arms around her daughters and led them away.  She was stoic, dry-eyed, even though grief was now permanently etched around her mouth, aging her considerably.


Chapter Nine

   Vanessa

I had gotten lost in a world of soldiers and frontier life, my face wet with tears, when I felt my bed dip beside me.  Looking up, startled, Linc was there, concern etched on his features.

“What’s wrong?”  Jolted out of the diary I’d been reading, I discovered it was dark, and apparently 
I’d been reading all day.  Talk about a hangover.  I was still in Emily’s world, more so because I was actually in her house, where she’d written these things, with a dilapidated barn in my backyard where all these men had died.

“Jamie died.  It’s so sad.”  The words left my mouth with not filter, pure emotion just spurting, and I managed to throw myself into Linc’s arms with a sob.  I hadn’t intended to, but I was still stuck almost two hundred years in the past, and a little paint on the walls didn’t change the look of the house. 

Linc let me cry on his chest, as he wrapped his massive arms around me.  He finally broke the pseudo silence with a murmured, “Who’s Jamie?”

I sniffed, hoping I was ruining his shirt.  “He was a little boy who used to live here.  Jamie, Emily, Rachel, Louise, Irene, a bunch of soldiers…  So sad!”

“They all died?”

“I don’t know.  I haven’t finished it yet.”  I wasn’t sure that I wanted to, but felt compelled to read the rest of the story.  This was an ugly cry diary.  I just knew it.

It really should have freaked me the fuck out, knowing that a little boy had died inside my house, but here with Linc holding my while I cried for the family’s loss, it wasn’t scary.  Just incredibly sad.  Sad because it was a way of life.  Rachel had been sad to lose her little boy, but it wasn’t unexpected.  Sickness took lives all the time.

I inhaled deeply, trying desperately to control myself.  I was looking like the fool in front of Linc, and I just didn’t really have the energy to put on a front.  Smelling his clean sweat, the sawdust of the floors he’d been cutting, and his deodorant, only served to burn the image of him working shirtless upstairs all day in my brain, while I’d been curled up reading.

“I’m sorry,” I sniffled, wiping my nose with the back of my hand but I didn’t pull away.  I liked being this close to him.  In my bed.

He stilled, but his heart beat in my ear, strong and steady.  I could feel it thumping against my cheek, and it lulled me.

“For what?”

“You’ve been working all day, and I’ve been down here reading.  I haven’t even helped you.”
I listened as his heart beat sped up a little, then he chuckled softly.  “You’re not much help, Vanessa.”
I did pull away then, to see if he was joking or not.  I could see a twinkle in his eyes, but that was all.  
“What do you mean?  I’m a lot of help!”  I was learning.  That was all part of it.

His eyes bounced back and forth between mine, and I saw a smirk lift the corner of his lips.  Those lips.  As if I could think of anything else.

“You’re a distraction,” he said softly, and before I could ask what he meant, he pulled me forward and it was my turn for the heart racing thing.  I could feel the grip of his hands on my shoulders as our faces got closer together, and I closed my eyes.

He was going to kiss me.  What would his lips feel like?  Would they be soft?  Hard?  All-consuming?  Would I get lost, and then in my bed, would one thing lead to another as he made love all night long?  Or would we fuck?  There is a difference, you know.

But he kissed me on the head, instead, and then stood abruptly, turning to walk to the door.
That’s right.  He had to get home to the giggler.  It was probably Courtney.  Bitch.

“I’ll see you tomorrow?”  He had the door open, and was standing on the other side, with just his head poking around it.

“Yeah, tomorrow.”

“Don’t read all night.”  He winked and left, and I swallowed my disappointment.
And that’s when I remembered why he’d been in bed with me comforting me.  Jamie had died.  In my house.


Now I was freaked the fuck out.



Of course, I'm still working on Pierce Securities, but I was taking a short break to get this story out of my head.  It's coming along slower than I anticipated, but I'm excited about the way it's shaping up.  And wanted to share a little of it with you.  Don't expect it until later this year, though, like possibly Fall.  :)

Spotlight/Review #NA WET by Stacy Kestwick #NewRelease #KindleDeal

Wet BT Banner

Title: Wet
Author: Stacy Kestwick
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Water's Edge (Book 1)

wet KINDLE

Synopsis

Doughnuts were her weakness.

If Sadie Mullins hadn’t been running on the beach to burn off the calories from her doughnut addiction, she wouldn’t have noticed the man not moving out in the water.

Wouldn’t have dived in after him.

Wouldn’t have met West Montgomery.

The cocky bastard should have been thankful, grateful even.

Of course, he wasn’t.

That should have been the end of it.

Of course, it wasn’t.

Damn doughnuts.

Excerpt
Our second date kind of sucked. Yeah, it was fun to sit on a barstool and stare at West and watch his ass shake when he mixed cocktails and bent over to scoop up grog. It was far less amusing watching all the ladies, and I use that term loosely, offer themselves up to him as not-so-virgin sacrifices. The Wreck clearly did not have self-respect on tap. I sighed as a girl just happened to spill her drink down her shirt. A sheer white tank top. Her big doe eyes widened as she pressed the cocktail napkin to her breast, rubbing at the damp spot until her nipple hardened. Oh, look! West had more napkins to save the day.

How nice.

West sent me a pained look and rolled his eyes. The girl looked barely legal as it was. It was like a guppy taunting a shark.

Stupid girl.

Sharks like to chase their prey.

Needing a break from all the calculated desperation clogging the bar area, I escaped to the bathroom. The stall I picked had a working lock — thank God for small favors — and I forced myself to take a deep cleansing breath as I sat there. Okay, yeah, that was poor planning on my part, since the bathroom reeked of covert cigarettes, drugstore perfume, and stale urine, but it was the thought that counted.

Like the rest of the bar, the bathroom was covered in graffiti. I never understood how people always just seemed to have Sharpies handy when they felt like marking their territory. I looked over the scribbled messages that peppered the wall.

Ohmygod — West lives up to the hype, every inch of it! <3 Jaymie

Wyatt is mine 4ever. The mine had been crossed out and Kim’s was written above it.

Right below that it said, Kim’s a slut-faced hoebag. Huh, eloquent.

Several seemed to echo the popular sentiment, West is so hot.

I spotted a bubble-lettered, Theo is a sweetheart, which probably wasn’t what he was hoping the girls bathroom said about him, considering the other notes about male anatomy it was tucked between.

But what started to piss me off was the drawing of an erect cock with the words, West and life-sized scrawled next to it. Other inscriptions saying, agreed! and totally! and yum! had arrows pointing to the image.

The artist was accurate too. Whoever the slut-faced hoebag was.

I did a quick survey of the other wall of the cramped stall and saw my date for the evening was the star attraction and, boy, did he shine.

Just as I started to flush and rearrange my bikini bottoms under my dress, I heard two sets of footsteps echo off the stained concrete floor.

“Amber, did you see that hopeless blonde that’s been hovering at the bar all night? I think West feels bad for her or something, he keeps going to check on her.”

“Yeah, but I asked him about it. He said she was his date!” Her sarcastic tone conveyed how ridiculous she considered that. They snickered and the sound of running water gurgling in the sink did little to muffle their words.

I stilled, shamelessly eavesdropping.

“She doesn’t even look like she’s taken a shower today.”

“I know! And her skin looks creepy under the lights! Maybe West had too many shots or something tonight. He has better standards than that. It’s an insult to all of us who’ve come before her.”

They dissolved into laughter, and the water turned off.

“Let’s try offering him a combo. He’s gone for it before.”

“Mmm, you know I love a good BOGO deal, Tipper. It’s worth a try. I think his date’s disappeared anyway. She must have gotten the hint.”

Their laughter faded and a hollow thunk of the door closing signaled their exit.

Wow.

Just — wow.

My mind whirled, and I was annoyed I hadn’t been able to see them through the crack between the stall door and the wall. How many other girls out there had already screwed my West? I made a face as I flushed the toilet, berating myself for letting things with him go past a quick fuck-and-duck.

I finished adjusting my admittedly wrinkled dress, opened the stall door with more force than necessary, and peered at myself in the crappy mirror. What the hell had that slut said about my skin?

Oh.

Oh!

I looked down at my arm, pressed the fingers of my other hand onto my skin, and let go. Five fingerprints glowed white before returning to an angry, lobster-red hue. The skin around my eyes seemed okay, thanks to the protection my gold-rimmed aviators had provided, but the rest of me looked almost fluorescent, like a raccoon in reverse. My hair was crinkled like old straw, frizzed and barely contained by my sad excuse for a braid.

I might have been so caught up in West earlier that I had forgotten sunscreen. And to look in a mirror once we got off the boat.

Maybe. Possibly.

No wonder those girls had been mocking me. I looked like a hot mess. Like, roasted.

Running a cautious fingertip over my shoulder, the tenderness of my skin confirmed the extent of my sunburn. I needed to roll like a pig in a puddle of aloe, stat.

The time had come to call this date a failure and make a quick exit, only I didn’t have my Wrangler. We’d dropped off the dog and picnic supplies at West’s place and come straight here in his oversized truck.

Twisting to see the back of my head, I finger combed my hair as best I could, letting it fall around my face to try to hide my Ray-Ban tan lines. Then I took the coward’s way out and sent West a text that I wasn’t feeling well and was taking a cab back home.

Slipping my tote bag over my shoulder, I skirted the perimeter of the bar, escaping out the front doors without looking back. I was standing on the front sidewalk and searching for the number of the cab company on my phone when it was suddenly snatched right out of my hands.

I gasped, taking a step back, and tucked my bag to my side.

“Running away?”

How the fuck had West gotten out of there so fast?

I dropped my gaze and let my hair hide my eyes, trying to disguise the worst of the damage.

“Yeah, I think I got a little too much sun,” I mumbled, not wanting to meet his eyes. Even though it was after eight, the sun was just beginning its descent, and there was still plenty of daylight.

He hooked my hip with his hand and tugged me closer. Using his free hand, he tipped my chin up, exposing my face. Eyes widening, he touched my cheek with the tip of his finger, wincing as he removed it. “Shit, Sadie, you’ve got to be in pain. Hold on, let me tell Wyatt I’ve got to get you home.”

I snorted. “Wouldn’t you rather stay here? I’m sure there are other toys you can play with instead.”

“What the fuck are you talking about?”

“Amber and Tipper would be more than willing to entertain you tonight. Together.”

West glanced toward the bar then back at me, annoyance splashed across his face. He moved closer, invading my personal space, and loomed over me, his eyes flashing gray storm clouds, but I stood my ground, refusing to step back. “I’m two inches from the person I want to be with tonight. Two inches. And I’d be happy to erase those two inches if you’re still not clear on that.”

My Review:

I loved this book. The story was compelling, even though I'm not a fan of New Adult. It did not have the typical cliches that so many NA books have that turn me off. Wet was fresh, funny, dramatic, sexy, and all the things I love in a story. The characters were relatable, deliciously flawed, and had me rooting for them the entire book. Of course, the entire story couldn't be told in this book, and I understand why, even though I hate it. I have mixed feelings about cliff-hangers, but the thing that gets me is I hate them the most when I'm emotionally invested in the story, and that's a sign of great writing. So, even though I hated that it ended the way it did, there was really no other way for it to end, and I can't wait for the next book in the series!

West slid behind me and plastered himself against me, wrapping his dripping arms around my waist. I turned to protest, and he pressed against my front, soaking most of my sundress.

“Hey!”

“Sorry, did I get you wet?” He grinned unrepentantly.

I pushed him away and pulled the bottom of the damp cotton away from my thighs before turning my accusing green gaze on him. “Are you trying to get me to strip down to my bikini?”

“Maybe.”

I tugged the dress over my head and laid it over the back of the center console, next to his shirt. “You could have just asked me, you know.”

“Would that have worked?” He raised his eyebrows, one corner of his mouth edging into a smile as he took in my bikini — seafoam-green edged with black lingerie-seamed detailing. Yes, I matched my bikini to my nail polish.

“Probably.”

“What else will you do if I ask?” He walked toward me slowly.

“What else do you want?”

He kept moving until we were almost touching. He bent his head down, stopping just short of my lips. “Everything,” he breathed, closing the last centimeter separating us.

His lips met mine, tasting of salt and sugar. Hands cupped my face and slid into my hair as we devoured each other. I wrapped my arms around him and grabbed his ass, pulling him snug against me until his hardness nestled into my softness. He cursed and ground himself against me, his tongue mimicking what his cock clearly wanted. I lifted one thigh and wrapped it around his waist, needing to get closer, my arms circling his back, and my hands clutching his shoulder blades.

We ate at each other, not bothering to pause for breath, and when his hands cupped my ass, lifting me and urging me to wrap my legs fully around his waist, I groaned with satisfaction, pressing my hips against him, desperate for friction. I nipped his lower lip, pausing to steal a breath, and he rested his forehead against mine, his beautiful eyes closed. Bending my head, I ran my tongue down his neck and trailed kisses along his shoulder as my hands explored his upper back, kneading his hard muscles and feeling them flex in response. Changing directions, I ran my palms up his neck, forcing his head back, and dug my fingers into his scalp until he opened his eyes. He groaned.

“I didn’t bring you out here for this.”

He rolled his hips, and I couldn’t answer, except to squeeze him tighter with my thighs.

I moved my lips to his ear. “Why the fuck not?”

#Romance #Tattoed #BadBoy #New Release Marked as His by Em Petrova Spotlight and #Review







Title: Marked as His
Series: Club Ties #3
Author: Em Petrova
 Release Date: May 7, 2015



Synopsis

Bring home the girl, get the glory. He never thought being tied to the club would land him in cuffs. Retrieving the wildcat daughter of a fellow club member lands Paxton cuffed, naked, to her bed—which he is totally okay with.

Resident tattoo artist for the Hell’s Sons, Paxton inks badass bikers, but he wants to climb the ranks within the motorcycle club. When he asks the president for a task to prove his value to the club beyond his artistic abilities, he is given an assignment—bring back the uncontrollable wildcat Santana DeSoya, the estranged daughter of a club brother.

Since the day her father walked out on her mother during a desperate family crisis, Santana hasn’t seen him and good riddance. Then a brawny, tattooed god walks up to her, and commands her to get on his Harley and return to her father’s motorcycle club with him. She has no choice but to take matters into her own hands—or handcuffs, that is.




With the tables turned and Paxton tied up—literally—he’s convinced his bid for club recognition is lost. While he calls to Santana’s vulnerable side and things heat up between them, putting her trust in a biker is almost as hard as returning to the club that nearly destroyed her family. Can Santana and her father settle their differences, especially when she rumbles back into his life on the back of Paxton’s bike, sporting his ink?

My Review

I'm not ashamed to admit, I'm a HUGE fan of Ms. Petrova.  Any time I'm in need of something hawt, she never fails to fulfill my need.  And Marked as His did not disappoint.  With a feisty heroine and a totally badass hero, I was enthralled from the beginning.  I love Ms. Petrova's biker series--it's one of my favorites.  I've read biker books (who hasn't, if your an avid romance reader, they're hard to avoid) but hers stand out from the crowd.  I fell in love a little bit with Paxton in Heart Ties, and was super excited to read his story in Marked as His.  What I liked the most I think, was that while Paxton was badass/alpha/everything hot and amazing, he still was the low man on the totem pole, needing to get Santana to get his patch.  And Santana got the best of him, right off the bat.  Awesomeness.
