Eight Days in the Sun by MK Schiller Book Tour and Giveaway!



EIGHT DAYS IN THE SUN
by MK Schiller
Pub. Date: 5/2/2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Love needs only one chance to shine . . .

He followed in his family’s footsteps and just graduated Marine boot camp. Now Mason Cutler’s personal mission is to get plenty of sun, surf, and no-strings romance in his favorite laid-back Florida beach town before shipping out. But a chance encounter with reserved Kiran Shenoy becomes a golden day of conversation, connection—and an intense attraction Mason can't walk away from. They make an agreement—eight sensuous days together without regrets or promises. Yet soon Mason is longing to convince the spirited woman behind Kiran's sad beautiful eyes to take a chance on even more . . .

All Kiran dared hope for was a chance to heal after a tragic accident and a devastating loss. Mason's freewheeling energy and head-on courage warms her scarred body and soul—and ignites her heart. But with their lives going in different directions, the only commitment they can make is a pact to meet again. Can what they feel survive Mason’s military duty, and Kiran’s second chance to restart her life? And can a desire sparked one summer night be enough for forever?



MK Schiller is a hopeless romantic in a hopelessly pragmatic world. In the dark of night, she sits by the warm glow of her computer monitor, reading or writing, usually with some tasty Italian…the food that is! She started imagining stories in her head at a very young age. In fact, she got so good at it that friends asked her to create plots featuring them as the heroine and the object of their affection as the hero. She hopes you enjoy her stories and find The Happily Ever After in every endeavor. M.K. Schiller loves hearing from readers.


As an author, I occasionally get to step outside of my writing cave. In fact, I recently attended the Romantic Times Convention in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia. For those of you who aren’t familiar, the RT Convention is a place where thousands of readers, authors, bloggers and industry specialists journey yearly. Why? Because we all love books, specifically the kind with romance.  
My father, although not a romance reader, was the person I credit for my love of books. There could be a party going on and he’d have his head in the new Tom Clancy novel. I remember he used to always say that reading makes you a better person. After all, books bring you closer to the human experience of someone else than any other art form. We may not get to walk in the character’s shoes, but we do get to hang around in their heads for several hundred pages (if we’re lucky). Never did I understand this more than at RT. Where else can you walk up to a random stranger and ask for a book rec? Where else can you stand in line for coffee and help a fellow author, you just met, figure out the log line for her next book? Where else can people talk about characters as if they were close friends?
There is also a sense of generosity and spirit among the attendees. Even the hotel staff commented on it. This is the kind of environment where New York Times bestsellers ask a new author what her book is about. I found mentors and readers and made many connections. Most of all, my father’s words never rang truer. Writers are readers first. A writer’s first emotion has to be empathy or else the writing will feel dispassionate and stiff. The words will not leap out of the page. Believe me, reading might be a sedentary activity, but any romance author will agree we want readers to pant and pulses to rise and hearts to skip a beat or two. Not to the point of a medical condition, but you get the picture
This year at RT, I was able to host a Romance – Bollywood party with several of my fellow Desi authors. We were able to show Bollywood tropes are similar to romance tropes in a fun way by miming them and showing video clips. It didn’t hurt that we had a handsome model to help us! Our books represent diversity in romance, but really they are not so different. I think that’s what my father meant. Reading brings out the best in people because it brings us together. We fall in love with the callous billionaire in Fifty Shades. Our heart ached for the little boy in the Kite flyer. We cheer for Hazel in The Fault in our Stars. We appreciate the differences, but even more importantly we discover the similarities.
If you happen to be at an RT Convention, come find me. I’ll be the girl looking for a good book rec.

Raffles to Rattles The Celebration Township, book 8 by Stacy Eaton Release Blast!


RAFFLES TO RATTLES
The Celebration Township, book 8
by Stacy Eaton

Sexy Living by Regina Cole Book Tour and Giveaway!


SEXY LIVING
by Regina Cole
Genre: Romance/Erotica

Pub Date: 5/23/17



Regina Cole tells a surprising—and sizzling—story about a successful young woman who learns that size is just a number, happiness is hot, and sexy is a way of life…

In her nine-to-five life, Stacey Hough is a confident young woman whose career is going from strength to strength. But a trip to Hawaii for her cousin’s wedding lays bare her deepest insecurities, and she books the first flight home to Atlanta to avoid exposing her curves on the beach. Tired of being unhappy, she decides to take action and heads to the gym. But her personal trainer’s seductive smile and ridiculous muscles make it hard to focus on lifts and lunges…

Robert Liston lives to help people achieve their goals. When Stacey walks into his gym, he sees a voluptuous woman who doesn’t know how beautiful she really is, and he’s determined to help her learn to accept herself. As soon as she starts warming up on the treadmill, things start warming up between them, and it’s only a matter of time before Rob is putting Stacey through her paces at the gym—and in the bedroom. As the line between work and pleasure blurs, Rob must convince her that sexy has nothing to do with the scale—and that her imperfections inspire the greatest passion of all…



Regina Cole, lover of manly muscled arms, chest hair, and mini-marshmallows, has been reading romance since her early teens. While she loves a love story of any heat level, she’s been drawn to the erotic side, and is enjoying every minute of writing it. When she’s not frantically pounding away at the keyboard, she can be found fishing with her family, playing with her dogs, trying out strange new recipes, or snuggling with her hubby. Readers can find out more about Regina (like she also writes mainstream romance as Gina Lamm) at reginacole.net.

The Guardians of Ivalice Author: Laura Catherine Cover Reveal and Giveaway!




Title: The Guardians of Ivalice
Author: Laura Catherine 
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy Release Date: 
June 24, 2017
Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.



On Ivalice, Prince Morgan has been living in the shadow of his twin brother and older sister. She will be queen one day and inherit the power of Spirit to protect their world and guard the other elements from harm. Morgan wants this power for himself and nothing will stop him from getting it, not even his family. With her dying breath, Queen Tamsin sends the elements to another world where Morgan cannot have them.

On Earth, Nix, Grace, Kendra and Phoebe are four ordinary teenage girls living normal lives where homework and boys are their biggest problems. That is until they absorb some strange glowing balls of light into their bodies and start controlling the elements.

Everything is about to change for these girls when the weight of an entire world is put on their shoulders.



The bus was old and probably in need of replacing with ripped seats and graffiti on everything including the roof. It also smelled like those tree air fresheners.

She made her way down the aisle to her favourite spot. It was about halfway down the bus, not so close to the front that you had to sit near a teacher but not so far back that you stayed away from the school bullies in the back row.

Nix slid into her favourite seat, the one graffittied in lyrics from her favourite band Chaos Destiny.

“Hello.”

Nix looked up to see the new girl staring down at her.

“Hi,” Nix replied. “You’re the new girl.”

“Phoebe Jenkins,” she said with an awkward smile.

Poor girl, Nix thought, doesn’t know anyone.

“Ah, I’m saving the seat next to me for my friend, but you should sit in front of us.”

Phoebe looked surprised at the offer and Nix wondered if other people had been less nice to her. 

Hopefully she hadn’t been subject to the antics of the school bully, Jasper.

“Go on, sit,” Nix encouraged with a smile.

“Thank you,” Phoebe replied and perched herself on the seat ahead of Nix.

“I shotgunned the window side,” Grace said as she pushed her way through the aisle of students still taking their seats.

Nix moved out of the way so Grace could claim her prize. Grace was always last to be called for things because her last name was West.

“What did I miss?” Grace said leaning on the back of Phoebe’s seat.

“Grace this is Phoebe,” Nix introduced.

“Ah, new girl,” Grace said with a cheesy grin. “Excellent. How are you liking Verndale?”

Phoebe sat up straight, pushing a loose strand of hair behind her ear. “It is a very beautiful town,” she replied. Her voice was soft like a gentle touch of fingers on guitar strings.

“Great. Just stick with us and you can’t go wrong.” Grace winked and leaned back in her seat.

Mr. Haynes appeared at the front of the bus, ushering people to take their seats so he could do a head count.

“Now today’s excursion—”

Mr. Haynes was cut short as a dark skinned girl with a shining curtain of black hair raced up the bus steps.

“Kendra,” Mr. Haynes said a little startled. “Where have you been? I called your name a while ago.”

“I’ve been objecting,” she said giving him a dazzling white smile.

“Objecting.” Mr Haynes nodded then did a double take. “Objecting to what?”

“I’m objecting to this excursion. I shouldn’t have to be forced into a swamp against my will.”

“I am sorry, Miss Tate, but there are other places out there besides the mall,” said Mr. Cole, the sports teacher who was accompanying Mr. Haynes on the trip.

The students giggled. Kendra pouted and looked like she was going to argue the point, but Mr. Haynes asked her to take a seat.



Laura Catherine was born in Melbourne, Australia and spent most of her childhood creating fantasy worlds and talking to her invisible pet cheetah who ran along powerlines.

Her imagination has carried her through childhood where her mother read stories about fantasy worlds at bedtime. Never one to face reality, Laura spent a lot of time turning boxes into ships and castles.

Laura self-published her first novel, Djinn (2013), a Paranormal Romance, and the second in the series, Blooders (2015). Laura is currently working on the next instalment in the Djinn series, Bloodjinn, as well as a few other novels including the first in a new YA series, The Guardians of Ivalice.
