…to a Synopsis

Book title: Koivu (Demons After Dark Book Three)
Series title: Demons After Dark
Genre: Paranormal romance
Release date: October 12, 2017

Blurb:

Introducing the Demons after Dark series! It’s hot paranormal romance featuring unlikely alpha heroes who will make you laugh, cry, and swoon. Known as Trinity demons, this band of brothers was stripped of their powers and violently exiled from Hell. Forced to live as humans, they’re left with no power and no weapons while a secret society quietly plots Lucifer’s demise. For these big, bad demons, adjusting to life as a human is, well, harder than Hell!

Former Hell’s Fury champion, Koivu, is desperate to return to Hell to reclaim his title and stolen life. As an extreme athlete, he had fame, glory, and more pleasure than he probably deserved. He was a freakin’ rock star! Being exiled in a broken human body is his worst nightmare. Stripped of his powers and unable to fight, he’s consumed by frustration, counting the seconds until he can go home. His future looks bleak until he meets a sexy, soft-hearted physical therapist who heals much more than his shoulder.

9545B372-9367-4D11-9560-012581FC91D4

Physical therapist Micki Glass knows something about damaged people. She’s been struggling to get over her ex for three long years when this crazy man crashes into her life. He’s crude and intense but irresistibly charming. With his feral eyes and sexy smile, Koivu takes her on a sensual joyride that makes her feel like a woman again. As their affair heats up, she craves him like oxygen until she discovers what he really is. With more than her heart on the line, can she accept his past and love him for who he is now?

07D2EA9A-ABE0-4681-AA31-9C148F48DAC7

The day of reckoning is looming closer and the sacrifices have begun. Can Koivu stop the murders, find the rest of the Trinity, and convince the woman he loves to give him another chance?

Warning: This story contains intensely hot sex, an irresistibly-damaged hero, and a damsel with a steel backbone. Have a box of tissues handy. The author takes no responsibility for missed work or grouchiness from lack of sleep.

Excerpt One:
“If you take off the blindfold, you’ll never know what you’re capable of.” He tapped her arm with something narrow, icy, and hard. “Feel that? That’s my toy for tonight.” He skimmed it across her belly and asked, “Does it scare you?”
Goosebumps followed the cold, pebbling her skin. Her pulse soared. Her voice turned breathless. “Yes.”
“It should.” He leaned in, stroking her lips with the tip of his tongue, licking at her, coaxing her to open for him. When she did, he plunged his tongue into her mouth, stroking rhythmically until she forgot all about fear. Breaking off the kiss, he gently caressed her cheek with the toy. She tensed up again, but he reclaimed her mouth in another blistering kiss. Pulling away at last, he said, “I swear I won’t damage you. Will you trust me, baby?”
“For now.”
“Sit back against the headboard, bend your legs and spread them wide.”
Her new position drew the tiny thong through the center of her cleft, digging into her delicate skin. She wriggled her ass to relieve the pressure but only tightened it more.
The bed shifted when he sat down beside her. The rough hair on his thighs brushed her knees as he moved between them. He hesitated for so long she began to squirm again. “What are you doing?” she asked, turning her head left and right.
“Hold very still.” Something sharp glided beneath her bra strap. A sudden quick motion sent the strap falling down her arm. The toy was a blade. Her breath caught with a whimper. He chuckled softly and drew the cold metal across her breasts to the other bra strap. It fell too.
She jumped and a sharp point pricked her skin. She froze with a shocked gasp. She squeezed her eyes closed behind the blindfold and waited for fear to kick in, but it didn’t. Her heart pounded madly. Her breath came in pants. She wasn’t afraid at all. She was more aroused than she’d ever been.

Excerpt Two:
“Yo, asshole! Let her go!” Koivu roared. He helped the guy let go of Micki by twisting his arm behind his back like a chicken wing. Walking him towards the exit, he missed the door and accidently-on-purpose slammed the guy’s face into the doorjamb once or maybe twice or possibly three times before his nose decided to bleed and Micki started shrieking in his ear.
“Koivu! Stop it!” She tugged on his arm, her delicate hands barely noticeable. “You’re hurting him!”
“And?” he asked. What was her point? “He was hurting you. It seems fair.”
The guy—whatever his name was—was busy trying to twist out of Koivu’s hold without breaking his own arm. Koivu simply jacked his elbow a bit higher and the struggles stopped.
She threw up her hands in exasperation and cried hoarsely, “Let him go! I just want him to leave. Okay?”
“You sound terrible. Didn’t the doctor tell you to take it easy today? Yelling your head off can’t be helping your sore throat.” He felt compelled to point that out since she wasn’t following the doctor’s orders.
The guy turned his head in her direction and restarted the argument Koivu heard through the door. “Is this him? Is this the guy you’re fucking?”
“And what if he is? It’s none of your damn business, Jake. You’ve got your life and I’ve got mine. Just stay away.” She blinked back tears and pointed at the door. “Please. Just stay away.”
Jake opened his trap to say something else, but Koivu was fresh out of interest. Micki was trying to keep it together, but she was shaking like a leaf, and he’d seen the tears she tried to hide. Time to end this bullshit. He jerked Jake around and shoved him through the open doorway onto the front porch. Before he dumped him into the yard, he bent closer to warn, “Come near my girl again and I’ll break you in half. Understand?”

#FosterAnAuthor3
#FAA3

What a blast Foster An Author has been!  I’m sad to see it go, but I’m thrilled to have found more authors that I have time to read!  You all know what I’m talking about!!  Today, is Daveigh’s turn for the Kingsbrier quintuplet of the day.

0012B3E7-97DB-4ABF-A4B0-19A75FC07EA8

Synopsis:
Cris Sanchez prefers to admire Daveigh Cavanaugh from afar. He’s a widower with a young son. She’s the boss’s daughter. The eight years that separate their age—and the exact time that Daveigh has been away for college and veterinary school—should have sealed their fate. Instead, Cris’s dedication to the family business and Daveigh’s love of animals has drawn them close. Now the pair must contend with the impending loss of a confidant they’ve shared for close to a decade.

Daveigh has returned to Kingsbrier harboring a secret, but none that cuts as deep as the one Cris has held onto. After allowing herself time to heal, will Daveigh find strength in their friendship to return to her studies? Or will she settle for half her dreams for the chance to be with the man she’s always loved? After admitting to his responsibility in his wife’s death, can Cris relinquish the past that haunts him? Or will he and Daveigh continue down separate paths?

Book title: Benn (Demons After Dark Book Two)
Series title: Demons After Dark
Genre: Paranormal romance
Release date: April 27, 2017

Blurb:

Known only as Trinity demons, they were stripped of their powers and violently exiled from Hell. Wrongly accused of an unthinkable crime, they’re left to survive with no memories and no weapons while a secret society quietly plots Lucifer’s demise. All is not lost though. Between some heavenly interference and the love of a few good women, the Trinity just might make it home before all Hell breaks loose. The new series continues with Benn and Lainey.

57B91714-87C9-4D21-AE32-A695C6DE6E07

A former shrink in SuperMax, Benn’s positive he’s lost his damn mind when he wakes up in the body of an uptight antiquities professor. One glance in the mirror and he knows he’s not in Hell anymore. After he’s brought into Expat Security, he’s handed a mission he can’t refuse if he wants to get home again. Live in Rome, raft into jungles, and risk life and brand new limbs? Sounds like his idea of Heaven! There’s only one problem. He can’t do the job without the help of a beautiful grad student who can’t stand the sight of him. He may not remember their past, but he’s ready to make their present a whole helluva lot more fun.

Grad student Lainey Hayes has done everything she can to escape her mother’s embarrassing world of psychics and palm readers. Throwing herself into her studies, she’s perfectly happy until she’s assigned to a special project with the egotistical, narrow-minded, and condescending Professor Daniels. The smug academic discounts anything and everything related to the paranormal–including her mother. The idea of spending months tramping through ruins with him sounds like her vision of Hell, but she’s shocked to discover this adrenaline junkie with a zest for life is nothing like the jackass she remembered.

Bare Tree Limbs Silhouetted Against Early Dawn Sky

Excerpt One:
After rear-ending Lainey with an oomph, Benn reached over her shoulder, his chest brushing her shoulder. He pointed at a half-wilted purple blossom clinging to a scraggly vine. “Unexpected beauty in the middle of all of this darkness,” he murmured wonderingly. “A gift from the gods.”
The flower was lovely, but so alone in the gloom. It was already wilting and limp. How long before it shriveled on the vine and fell to ground? She felt a little sorry for the delicate thing. “It’s a shame no one can see her beauty. She’ll die in the dark unknown and unremembered.” She embraced the poetry of the moment with a whimsical smile.
“Not so.” His supple muscles flexed against her shoulder when he wrapped his arms around her to pluck the blossom. “Turn around,” he ordered softly.
There wasn’t much room for that, but she wiggled sideways until they were almost face to face and she stood circled by his arms. His expression was unreadable for a moment and then he swept the flower beneath her nose, saying, “Breathe her perfume, Lainey. Let her scent fill your mind and nourish your soul. Now, she’ll be remembered. Her short life will matter.”
Were they still talking about the flower? She wasn’t sure anymore. Their playful poetry suddenly seemed more intimate. Uncomfortably personal. She started to move away, but he stopped her with a warm palm against the small of her back.

Excerpt Two:
Benn stripped on the dock and peered into the still blue water at his feet. It was truly an amazing color and so clear he couldn’t tell how deep it was. Walking forward a few feet, he sank to his waist with an unmanly sigh of pleasure. Oh, yeah. So good. Slightly cool, the silky water flowed over his sticky skin and stiff muscles like satin sheets. He grabbed a fistful of sandy pebbles and scrubbed himself clean.
Lainey met him on the dock with a towel and his pack. And a cup of coffee! She looked him over with pride in her eyes, and said, “Captain Eddie has a coffee maker. Which do you want first? The towel or the coffee?”
“Coffee, please.” He took the cup and savored every last drop while his ass dried the old fashioned way. “You look sexy as hell in those boots,” he told her when his brain was awake.
She twirled and plucked his empty cup out of his hand with a flourish. “Comfortable, waterproof boots are important in the jungle. It would be miserable to walk in wet shoes and they go well with the cargo shorts and t-shirt.”
“Very Indiana Jones-ish too. Thank Lucifer for movies on the plane. Now I know what you’re talking about. Come to think of it, maybe I should say ‘thank Raphael’. I wonder if he’d care. Note to self: Thank the boss for sending us a private jet this time. Much better than the commercial flight to Rome.” He opened his pack and dug out his clothes under her amused supervision. By the time he sat down to pull on his boots, she was eating him up with pure womanly appreciation and he stopped to ask why.
Crouching down to his level, she stroked her fingers over the two-day blond beard, and said sincerely, “I haven’t seen you naked in the light before. You’re gorgeous.” She ran her hands over his shoulders, down his back, and smiled wistfully. “All ripped and hard. Powerful and sexy. I’m a lucky woman.”
He actually blushed. For the first time in a hundred years, he blushed. He kissed her fingertips and looked her in the eye. “We’ll have sex with the light on next time. I promise.” He got to his feet and slung the pack over his shoulder. “Clock’s ticking, babe. Let’s get this grand adventure started.”

Synopsis:
If growing up as a quintuplet wasn’t hard enough, wild Brier Cavanaugh also had to wonder what men love more—her or her trust fund? Brier’s defiant streak kept that hurt away. No one was going to tell her what to do or how to live. She left Kingsbrier unwilling to let the man she’s always refused to acknowledge she loves stop her from pursuing her dreams. Now, despite a fulfilling career as a police officer, Brier knows that something is missing from her life. The more distance she puts between herself and her family, the more empty she is becoming. When circumstances bring her back home, Brier confronts the one person she’s avoided for years.

Drew Newhouse, an NFL football player and Brier’s childhood sweetheart, has never backed down from a challenge. Brier has pushed him away more than once and Drew has given her space because he knows they’ve always been meant to be. This time, he’s playing for keeps. With the help of the other quints, will Drew be able to win her trust and marry the woman he loves? Can Brier put her heart on the line and finally give Drew the chance they both deserve?

E8592CFB-8FFA-4E10-BC36-0F718264AA95

At the same time, Brier’s baby sister, Daveigh, is struggling with her own role in the family. It was one thing being shielded by her siblings when she was young, but she’s not a little girl anymore. It’s becoming harder for Daveigh to make her way in the world as the woman she is destined to be. If her overprotective brothers would just stop thinking they are doing what is best to keep her safe.

TEASER COPY:
Not one of the quints would dare tell defiant and cunning Brier what to do. She’s used her brother’s friendship with Drew against him to keep their relationship a secret. But when Drew wants more and finally stands up to Brier will her days of being able to manipulate everyone be over?

Even after Brier’s brothers beat Drew Newhouse to a bloody pulp, he never gave up on the woman he always loved. Drew let Brier go her own way because he knows deep down they’ve always been meant to be…And while he’s been waiting on Brier to fulfill her own dreams, Drew has followed his passion. This time, Brier’s game is up and Drew is playing for keeps.

Unfailing Daveigh is known as the sweetest of the quints. Her confidence is put to the test when her daddy hires Cris. Wouldn’t you know, the first time she wants a man’s attention it turns out he’s grieving the loss of his wife. Thinking that Cris may feel the same about her would prove Daveigh is as naive as as Brier and her brothers say she is. Or would it?

Even after Brier’s brother beat Drew Newhouse to a bloody pulp, he never gave up on the woman he always loved. Drew let Brier go her own way because he knows deep down they’ve always been meant to be… Years later, the situation is reversed. How is Drew supposed to react when his womanizing best friend takes a shine to his foster sister?

Hell on Earth has never been this much fun!

Introducing Demons After Dark. Hot paranormal romance featuring unlikely heroes who will make you laugh, cry, and swoon. Dubbed as Trinity demons, this band of brothers was branded as traitors and tossed out of Hell while an ancient evil patiently plots Lucifer’s demise. Waking up with no memories and no powers, the Trinity are horrified to learn they’re now human and the conspiracy’s roots are much deeper than they thought. An uneasy alliance with the archangel Raphael is their only hope of clearing their names and stopping a civil war in Hell from destroying humanity. The series begins with Vanek and Dylan.

Thanks to her family’s curse, Dylan has been promised to a sadistic soul broker and she’s desperate to escape a terrifying future. After an impulsive act leads her to Morningstar Sanitarium, she’s inexplicably drawn to the sad and mysterious Vanek, but the connection is broken when they escape. Forced into hiding, Dylan turns to Expat Security for protection. Stunned to find Vanek working there, she almost walks away. Another demon is the last thing she needs in her life.

325448C0-D31D-4E9F-8AD6-9AC24FC67830

Formerly one of Hell’s most renowned Painkillers, Vanek is horrified with being human until he discovers he’s been thrown into the body of a badass mercenary with a definite kinky streak. Wondering how he got so lucky, he jumps into his new role at Trinity’s Op Center–Expat Security. When Dylan’s soul broker recognizes him as one of the Trinity demons, he knows they’ve got to take her case. As his attraction to her grows, so does the conspiracy that landed him in Brooklyn.

Is Vanek’s past the key to saving his future–and hers?

Warning: This story contains snort out loud humor, a blistering hot antihero, and a damsel with a steel backbone. The author takes no responsibility for missed work or grouchiness from lack of sleep.

Excerpts:

One:
This woman . . . She was undoing everything he thought he knew about humans. She wasn’t weak and stupid. She was brave and strong. Stubborn and kind. Resilient and fucking sexy. If he wasn’t careful, she’d worm her way under his skin and make him want to stay. That couldn’t happen. But if she wanted to poke the beast, play on the dark side, who was he to resist the temptation?
“Careful, babe. You won’t like me when I’m pissed off. I’m not one of the good guys.” He took her by both wrists and walked her back against the glass. Her heartbeat skyrocketed. He allowed himself a satisfied grin before saying, “You might even say I’m wicked.” Stretching her arms over her head, he trapped her hands in one of his own. Cupping her breast, he brought her just to the edge of pain. Her nipple swelled and tightened against his palm. That quick glint of fear left her eyes, replaced by hunger, lust that mirrored his.
Softening his hold, he smoothed his palm over her breast until she whimpered and let her eyes drift closed. Squeezing hard enough to pop her eyes back open, he buried his face against her neck and murmured, “Some might say I’m insatiable.”
She shivered in anticipation, her body melting against his. Taking that as permission, he held her in place, rocking his hips to brush his erection against her mound with maddening slowness. “Hunger’s a demon thing.”
Her pulse thudded as he dragged his mouth over her throat and nibbled the tender skin underneath her ear. “I’m so hungry, I could eat you alive.”

E0662C27-59F1-4E4A-894F-C8D96E3766B5

Two:
Dylan stole a glance into the window of John Doe’s room. Her chest tightened with sympathy. Poor guy. He was awake today. Awake and staring at the filmy window. She could only see his profile, but it was enough to see the misery etched there, the agony in his sunken eyes. A t-shirt hung loosely over his once powerful back and shoulders. Grey sweatpants threatened to swallow him. How many days had he been here? He got here a few days after she had . . . so, it would be two weeks. In two weeks, he’d probably lost fifteen pounds. As if sensing her presence, he stiffened and swiveled slowly until he was facing her direction. He started to lift one hand, but it shook so hard he gave up and let it drop to the bed.
She should turn away. He wasn’t her business. She should leave, but she was caught in the hopelessness of his stare. The meds had been doing a good job of keeping him under control, but a wink of awareness sparked within the dead green eyes. Those eyes clung to hers for only a moment before he shut down and slumped against the pillow.

Yesterday, I told you about Laurie’s Primani Series.  Today, we’re going play “Getting to Know You” before we delve into the crossover world of Demons After Dark.  Don’t forget that she’ll be here on Thursday to take over.  It’s going to be great!  Enjoy!

Laurie Olerich Interview

Short Bio:
Laurie Olerich is an ex-military, adopted Texan, bourbon swilling romantic fantasy novelist. Her action packed urban fantasy and paranormal romance novels are inspired by her thirst for exploration of the metaphysical and occult. She is an avid world traveler, always delving deeper into her research of demonology, old cemeteries, and otherwise creepy places.

Long Bio:
For as long as she can remember, Laurie Olerich has been fascinated with all things paranormal. From the time she was a little girl, her vivid imagination led her on ghost hunting missions with her invisible friend. As an adult, Laurie has evolved that rich fantasy life into a love of travel and exploration that has sent her on expeditions from New England to Rome in search of old cemeteries and underground burial sites. Along with her studies of demonology and angelology, she uses inspiration from her travels to write action-packed urban fantasy and paranormal romance novels full of wickedly sexy characters and creepy places. An unhealthy love of hockey and a 20 year military career give her a penchant for strong men and big guns.

Questions:

How do you come up with the locations/settings for your books?
I’m a woman with a serious need for excitement and adventure. I thank Uncle Sam for that! My first duty assignment in the USAF was Plattsburgh Air Force Base, New York. I was blown away by the beautiful tranquility of the Adirondack Mountains. It was there that I fell in love with snow and snowboarding. The forests, lakes, and mountains fed my soul and made me who I am today. On the flip side, I spent a ton of time in Manhattan because it’s filled with the constant hum of energy from millions of souls. I adore the feeling of excitement that surrounds me when I’m there. Nearly all of my books are set in Plattsburgh, Manhattan, or Brooklyn because these are places that have shaped me and still thrill me today.

What’s on your nightstand? Oh, nothing too exciting! There’s a tablet for middle of the night notetaking, a well-worn copy of the Kama Sutra for research, and a tarnished halo that hangs from the end of Raphael’s sword.

Is it challenging to write male characters? Whether it’s my immortal spec ops Primani, exiled Trinity demons, or Machiavellian archangels, my guys act like men! I think I was a man in a former life because their natural aggression, sexiness, and total badass warrior spirits make me super happy! All of my books have tons of action and the guys are usually fighting, blowing stuff up, or having wild monkey sex with the women they’ve fallen hard for. Is it challenging for me to write male characters? Not even a little bit!

Are any of your characters’ adventures based on real life experiences? Oh, absolutely they are! All of the snowboarding, hiking, and rafting adventures come from firsthand experiences—though I exaggerated the rafting trip through the tropical jungle in “Benn.” I’ve got a deep, dark obsessive love of creepy and abandoned places so the Roman catacomb scenes, crypts, and abandoned subway tunnels were natural settings for life and death events. I’ve explored all of these places and more. As you can see, I didn’t mention any of the crazy places my characters have sex. I WISH I could say those adventures were based on personal experience, but I haven’t ever blown up a building with a supernatural orgasm. At least, not yet. I’m still living, so there’s still time.

Where do you get your ideas for your novels?
Most of my ideas come from my own desperate need for a good time! I love all things supernatural and have been known to explore creepy cemeteries, caves, and abandoned stone circles. I’ve even been a Ghost Hunting 101 panel member at ComicCon. I’m fascinated with the human mind so I like to play with telepathy, telekinesis, and other psychic abilities. I’ll research a particular concept like reincarnation or remote viewing and base a book or character on that. Take that concept, add a ton of action in really cool places, throw in hot bodies and crazy good sex, and there’s a story!

How is the Demons After Dark Series related to the Primani Series?
Demons After Dark is set in the Primani world, but the main characters are demons who’ve been exiled from Hell. The demons are nicknamed “Trinity” by Raphael’s original Primani, Killian. While the Primani characters make occasional appearances, they’re not the center of these new stories. In the DaD books, readers get to know Lucifer and Raphael even more intimately because they are working together to prevent a fanatic secret society from overthrowing Lucifer and taking over both Hell and the human plane. Poor Raphael is stuck managing Lucifer’s Trinity demons as they learn to survive as humans and struggle to juggle their new lives and the women who turn them upside down. By the way, I love, love, love hiding Easter eggs so there are fun little surprises scattered in the stories. Readers who’ve fallen in love with the Primani world will spot these treats.

How much influence do your readers have on your books? Over the years, I’ve worked hard to create a team of beta readers and a reader group. My beta readers are irreplaceable. They provide a sanity check before I publish. I rely on their input to help me put together a story that’s exciting, surprising, and satisfying. I love getting emails from readers too. I’m gradually putting together some really fun Primani novellas featuring the children and their powers. This project is a direct result of reader feedback. The kids are adorable and I’ve gotten a ton of requests for their stories.

Does any music/situations/media inspire your writing process? If so, what?
Music probably inspires me more than any other external stimulus. I’ve created entire character personalities based on the edgy, gritty, raw lyrics of bands like Seether, Staind, and Shinedown. Lead singers Shaun Morgan, Aaron Lewis, and Brent Smith have the kind of voices that rasp over my ears and sink deep into my mind while I’m gazing into space looking for inspiration. I love my complicated male characters and these singers speak to me of damage, vulnerability, and anger that fit perfectly in my Primani and Demons After Dark worlds. Sometimes only a single verse ignites an entire chapter. Maybe that’s weird, but it works for me.

How does your adult son feel about the sex in your books? My son’s very proud of me and has been super supportive over the years. We are really close and talk honestly about everything, including sex and relationships. That being said, he’s not even remotely interested in hearing about the details of the sex scenes in my books! He does, however, steal all condoms that I bring back from writer/reader conferences!

What drew you to the urban fantasy and paranormal romance genres? I love creating the world and the lore that goes with it. My stories are meant to be an escape for readers. What better way to forget your problems than to lose yourself in a world that may or may not exist alongside our distressing one? Each book builds on the lore and the backstory so it unfolds in real time as you read. I love giving my characters unique psychic abilities that give them an edge on the bad guys and in the bedroom too–telepathy, telekinesis, energy exchange, teleporting… Imagine the possibilities! My paranormal world includes Primani (immortal soldiers), psychics, angels, and demons (both good and bad). Oh, and just because this is PNR, there’s no reason to leave out the occasional kinky character, is there? These guys have needs too! Now, isn’t that more fun than cowboys and bikers? Wink, wink!

Do you champion any causes?
Over the years, I’ve rescued and rehabilitated 26 Dalmatians. There are so many abandoned and unwanted animals out there and I’m glad I was able to find new homes for these beautiful dogs. At any given time, we usually have two or three Dals in the house. Although now we’re down to only one since my favorite girl died last year. Princess Domino was 15. She may be gone, but I immortalized her in my Primani books in the years before she died. Yes, she really did play hacky-sack with us! Luckily, we’ve still got Rambo. He’s my writing buddy now. We rescued him from an abandoned crack house. Once we got him cleaned up and healed from terrible injuries, he’s been a wonderful, loving member of the family. I recommend adopting a rescued animal to anyone looking for a new furbaby!

Today, I’m going to tell you about Jody Kaye’s second Book, Imprint.  It’s the follow-up to Canvas, which I’ve moved up on my TBR.  When I told Jody I’d already downloaded Canvas, her reply was, “Ugh, there’s no HEA.”  I told her life wasn’t always about HEAs.  I’m looking forward to reading, and not having to wait for the second book because it’s already here!!  I hope you’ll check it out!  Just like yesterday, synopsis and buy links follow.

Synopsis:
I shouldn’t have kissed Lindsey the morning after her husband died…
Letting Lindsey walk away from me should have kept her safe from the unhappiness in life. Now Jason, the man I let her leave me for, is dead and Lindsey is back in Rollinsford. I’m doing everything to make it up to her. While I still can’t have Lindsey, maybe I can help her.

I shouldn’t have let Mitch think that kiss was about us…
All I wanted in that moment was my husband back. The guilt of betraying Jason’s memory is killing me and letting Mitch take the blame for that kiss was wrong. To make matters worse, he’s pulling the friend card. I can see us slipping back into the rhythm of our lives when we were young. But Mitch still battles his long-standing demons and plans to leave Rollinsford with his fiancée after their wedding. That’s fine. He’s pushed me away before. Although, I’m not sure what to do if he hurts my daughter in the process.
