#MySexySaturday ZACH'S REBOUND GIRL #MSSAuthor #Romance @MySexySaturday #Saturday7

It's been a few weeks since I last participated in a blog hop so I decided to join in the My Sexy Saturday Blog Hop this week. The hop requires participating authors to post 7 paragraphs, 7 sentences or 7 words from a WIP (work in progress) or published work. 

The theme this time is A Sexy Thriller. My 7 sentence snippet comes from Zach's Rebound Girl, my full length Romantic Comedy, light Mystery/Suspense which is set here in the UK and in Vermont. It's from a sexy scene that gets interrupted in a very chilling way...

Goodbye quiet geek ... hello hot TV personality.

Television property renovator Maddison de la Botella is popular, adored, and on the brink of snagging the opportunity to restore her ancestral home—if a ruthless developer doesn’t tear it down first! Her life has suddenly gone from smooth to bumpy, and it all starts the night she discovers her new neighbour ogling her in her hot tub is none other than Zachary Canady! Her once-upon-a-time best friend and heartbreaker.

He’s still way too gorgeous, still makes her heart flip—and still sees her as just a friend. Back in uni, Zach made sure she understood men wanted exciting women. And there was nothing exciting about Maddie. Now ten years on, here’s her chance to make him notice she’s a living, breathing, desirable woman—even if she almost cracks a tooth to prove it. But is it coincidence that as soon as Zach re-enters her life, she becomes curiously accident-prone?

Commercial property developer, Zach is about to close the business deal of his career until his past catches up with him, and he’s knocked sideways by the stunner next door. Suddenly he can’t decide what he’s protecting Maddie from—his white-hot desire, or the psychotic stalker out to harm her.

*~*~*


He smiled and she fancied she saw adoration there too. “I was waiting for the perfect time to tell you this, but every time I’m with you is perfect. Maddie, I—”

A metallic click interrupted whatever Zach was about to say. 

She glanced over her shoulder. 

Her heart nearly leapt out of her chest, a trillion pinpricks of shock and fear exploded through her. 

Zach’s arms tightened around her as they both stared toward the person walking out from behind the wide trunk of an oak tree, a small gun clasped between hands at chest level, elbows locked, contempt glinting from a cold glare.

Cover Reveal: New Cover & Title ~ Ethan's Temporary Fling (Book 1 in the Sexiest Eye Candy series) #Romance

After thinking about this for a while, I finally decided to change the title and cover of Sexiest Eye Candy. Since book 2 will be titled Brad's Beck 'n' Call girl, I thought it might be prudent to change book 1 to reflect the theme. Sexiest Eye Candy (Book 1 of the Sexiest Eye Candy series) is now titled: Ethan's Temporary Fling.

Then I decided to also have the cover re-made. I spent some time with my amazing cover designer and close friend--the wonderful Crystal Swan--and she came up with the fab cover you see below! I just love this new cover. Thanks Crystal!

The story hasn't changed, just the title and cover.



You can purchase Ethan's Temporary Fling from any Amazon store. Here are two for your convenience.

Excerpt


THIS WAS not the Maddie Zach knew. His Maddie was sweet and pure and made him want to protect her.

The Maddie who luxuriated in a bubbling hot tub only inches from him, had need surging through him. She was tanned, lively, and altogether too desirable. And she made him ache to devour her in all the ways a man could enjoy a woman.  

He stuffed his hands into his jean’s front pockets to stop himself from reaching for her, disliking the fact that five minutes in Maddie’s company turned him into a basic, primal male. 

In fact, he hated it a lot.

#MySexySaturday SEXIEST EYE CANDY snippet #Romance #Bloghop @MySexySaturday #Saturday7

This week I'm taking part in the My Sexy Saturday Blog Hop. The hop require participating authors to post 7 paragraphs, 7 sentences or 7 words from a WIP (work in progress) or published work. 

My snippet comes from my latest release Sexiest Eye Candy, a spicy contemporary romance set here in the UK. My hero--Ethan Stone--is a celebrity weight loss coach and my heroine--Karis Van de Burke--is a cosmetic surgeon. From the moment these two meet, things heat up.


Blurb

He’s so sexy he has the title to prove it!

Super-hunky, weight-loss celebrity Ethan Stone brings out Dr. Karis Van de Burke’s inner bad-girl. To prove it, when Ethan accepts the challenge to persuade the sassy, love-rejected cosmetic surgeon to appear as a guest on his show, she ends up inviting him into her bed for one night of guilty pleasure instead.

Used to women throwing themselves at him boobs first, Ethan knows his way around every female erogenous zone, but the sizzling chemistry he has with Karis blindsides him. Soon he’s convincing her to extend their one-night to another ... and another ... and...

Karis can’t resist! Yet, if Ethan discovers her secret, he’ll ditch her as fast as her ex-fiancĂ© had -- but really, what could go wrong in a one-week, tangle-free, affair?


*~*~*

My 7 paragraph snippet is from the scene where Karis and Ethan see each other again after their one-night stand.



Ethan’s lips were a second from touching hers when she placed her fingers on her mouth creating a barrier and preventing the kiss he’d intended. “Hello, Ethan. Yes I did, thank you, but you really didn’t have to.”
“I wanted to.” He raised one brow. “What? No kiss hello? I thought we were friends.”
“Acquaintances.” She spoke from behind her fingers. Since Ethan hadn’t retreated, she didn’t dare remove the barrier between them.
“Ouch and there I was thinking we were slightly more than that.”
Heat crawled up the back of her neck. She fought to keep the embarrassed warmth from showing up in her face, offered him her right hand in a formal greeting to prove her point. “How nice to see you again.”
His smile was pure wickedness as he took her hand, leaned in the car, and kissed her cheek, his light stubble brushing her skin. A blast of electricity overcharged her body. Her breath stalled in her chest.
“Sweetheart.” The low rumble of his arousing voice vibrated next to her ear. “We can play games if you like, but I prefer the ones I know the rules to; the sort that has you moaning my name and begging me for more.”

*~*~*

If you enjoyed this snippet and would like to read the entire novel, you can purchase SEXIEST EYE CANDY from any Amazon store. It's still 99c/77p until the end of June.
