HOW TO HANDLE A HEARTBREAKER!


harteHOW TO HANDLE A HEARTBREAKER by Marie Harte

HE CAN’T GET HER OUT OF HIS HEAD

It’s lust at first sight when Brody Singer first lays eyes on Abby Dunn. The dark-haired beauty looks a lot like a woman he once knew, who died years ago. At first, Brody fears his attraction is a holdover from that secret crush, but Abby’s definitely different. She’s a lot shyer, a lot sexier, and despite her attempts to dissuade his interest, absolutely mesmerizing.

 

SHE CAN’T GET HIM OUT OF HER BOOKS

Abby isn’t having it. She’s still trying to put her last disastrous relationship behind her and overcome the flaws her ex wouldn’t let her forget. But somehow Brody isn’t getting the hint. It doesn’t help that when writing her steamy novels, she keeps casting Brody as the hero.

Brody is more than happy to serve as her muse and eager to help make sure her “research” is authentic. But when their research turns into something real…will she choose her own happily ever after?

In How to Handle a Heartbreaker, it’s lust at first sight when Brody Singer first lays eyes on Abby Dunn. The dark-haired beauty looks a lot like a woman he once knew, who died years ago.

Are you attending any conventions in 2014? If so, what are the top three reasons as to why you like/choose them?
I’ll be attending the Emerald City Writer’s Conference, and I can’t wait. My top three reasons for attending are networking, meeting readers, and it’s fun.

What is your favorite romance genre and what author makes you absolutely swoon?

I’m a sucker for erotic romance in any subgenre. I like the physical passion that accompanies the love. There are many authors who make me swoon, so I’d have a hard time choosing just one.

What is your dream vacation spot?

A deserted Caribbean island where my cabana boy can fan me in my lounger while I can absorb the sun, listen to the waves roll in and out, and feel the wind kiss my face.

What do you think has been the most important moment or event of your life so far? And why do you feel that way?

I’ve had so many important events in my life. Joining the USMC, having my children, moving across the country and starting over. But it’s funny. I was just talking to my boys today, and I realized the exact moment I wanted to be a writer—a monumental point in my life. I was in sixth grade and we’d had an English writing assignment. My teacher read my work aloud to the class, because I’d incorporated the students and teacher into my story, and everyone loved it. That warm fuzzy feeling stuck with me. I wanted to bring that joy to others, so that same happiness I felt after reading a book could be shared. I love my job.

Is there anything else you would like our readers to know?

That I have a monthly newsletter to keep up on contests, releases and updates. It’s low volume and filled with insider news. Sign up and see.

Thanks for having me!

JoyfullyRecommendedSpecial Forces Captain Landon Donovan isn’t exactly happy when he is pulled away from his team in the middle of a mission for a secret assignment.  When he learns he is to be teamed up with a woman he finds sexy as sin, he feels a little better about this assignment. After seeing the beauty fight, Landon is downright excited.

Female shifter Ivy Halliwell isn’t happy to be teamed with another Special Ops guy.  She’s had several partners and none of them have respected her natural talents.  She learns quickly that Landon is different.  He is happy to use her extra gifts to hunt down the bad guys. The only problem is that Ivy can’t stop wanting to jump his bones!  Ivy and Landon will be tested as a major bad guy emerges, putting them in danger. Will they survive long enough to test their feelings for each other?

Paige Tyler has a purrrfect hit on her hands with Her Perfect Mate.  I have been craving a shifter romance that burns the pages and Ms. Tyler’s Her Perfect Mate is brilliantly satisfying.  I absolutely love Her Perfect Mate it has everything you need in a paranormal romance…action, suspense, desire, sizzling chemistry and a romance to die for!

Tyler creates an intriguing world for her phenomenally layered characters.  Landon is your sexy military guy with a hardened exterior but his heart shines through and proves he is much more.   Ivy is exasperated with her partner situation as all of the ones in the past have disregarded her and her skills.  Landon is a delightful change for Ivy and I love how he throws her off balance with his willingness to work together.  They share some intensely sexy scenes.  These two are hot, hot hot! There is one scene that I love and it involves a pizza guy! I could not stop laughing it was totally adorable.  Her Perfect Mate is a movie in the making!  The end was action-packed and so thrilling!  I was holding my breath in anticipation!  You do not want to miss out on this blockbuster read!

Her Perfect Mate is definitely on my Best of list for 2014!

Two deadly predators... As a feline Enforcer, Tammy Anderson has one objective: locate the missing jaguar and return it to the States. She doesn't have time for distractions, and she definitely doesn't have time for sexy shifters with more muscles than sense. One hot mission... Everyone and their brother has warned JAG agent David Patterson that Tammy is Ms. Hands-Off...which only makes him more determined to get very hands-on. But things heat up in the steamy jungles of Belize and their simple mission gets a whole lot more complicated. Now it's going to take everything David's got to protect the gorgeous she-cat who somehow managed to claw her way past his defenses...and into his heart.

JoyfullyRecommendedEnforcer Tammy Anderson has a reputation among her fellow enforcers as a one woman show.  Tammy likes to leave her partners in the dust.  Her latest case involves a missing jaguar.  She is all set to head to Belize to find the jaguar when she discovers she has been assigned a partner for this mission.

 

JAG Agent David Patterson has heard a lot about Tammy.  None of that prepared him for the insane chemistry and protective feelings she arouses. She manages to get away from him once but as they arrive in Belize they both realize having a partner may be a good thing.

 

The case of the missing Jaguar becomes more complicated than either Tammy or David anticipated.  Danger stalks their every move as things heat up in the jungle.  Tammy and David ache to explore the intense feelings between them but they may not get the chance as it seems someone wants them dead.

 

Terry Spear makes the pages of her latest Jaguar book catch fire with her steamy characters and suspenseful storytelling.  Jaguar Hunt takes us from Texas to Belize and back with one hell of a plotline and plenty of passion.  Tammy and David are the perfect pair; it was exciting falling in love with them as the story unfolded.  Tammy is such a strong and crafty character. She is definitely capable of taking care of herself but she has forgotten what it is like to have someone take care of her.  David is smitten with Tammy right away. He really can put her in her place and come out all innocent.  I just love the teasing banter they have throughout the story.

 

Ms. Spear does an excellent job of creating a visual of the jungle setting for the reader.  The entire zip line scenario made me want to vomit and that is actually good because I felt like I was experiencing the happenings with the characters.  I do love the Belize setting but I could really do without the snakes!

 

Jaguar Hunt takes the reader on a wild adventure…one they won’t want to end!

OUT OF BOUNDS
by
Dawn Ryder

Power may be best when it’s shared…

He’s used to dominating…

Tarak Nektosha is a self-made man, against all odds. He accomplished that by making sure he’s the one in charge, both in the boardroom and in the bedroom.

She’s taking her power back…

Sabra Donovan has ambition to spare and energy to burn. So what if her last lover was a disappointment? She’s never going to be anyone’s plaything ever again.

Sabra’s outstanding performance at a corporate photo op attracts Tarak’s attention, and the lines begin to blur. What happens when the one on top surrenders and the one used to obeying begins to call the shots?


Excerpt

“You’ll do nicely,” he announced, one pace in front of her.

He plucked the wineglass from her distracted fingers and handed it off.

“Excuse me?” she managed to thrust past her frozen lips.

“Sabra Donovan, analyst, master’s in bio fuels. Correct?”

It sounded as if he only added the last word as a courtesy. There was certainly nothing questioning in his sharp gaze. He knew exactly what he wanted and intended to get it. The pure abundance of confidence was mesmerizing.

“I think you have me at a disadvantage,” she muttered.

Pleasure flashed in his eyes. His lips twitched up just a tiny fraction, almost too faint to measure, but she saw it. In fact, she was sure he wanted her to notice. He wasn’t the sort who apologized for anything.

Arrogant too.

He was—and completely unashamed of it.

“I’m your boss.”

She stepped back, something inside of her recoiling. The hot curl of excitement was lingering in her clit, so she wasn’t really sure what it was she objected to, only that complete submission was out of the question. It wasn’t a conscious thought, but something she felt on a very personal level.

His eyes narrowed, somehow becoming more sensuous, more determined.

“Excuse me,” he offered softly. “Tarak Nektosha, your employer.”

She was a complete idiot. He wasn’t Japanese; he was Apache. Lawless, savage, and exactly like the line of vehicles his company produced.

“I require someone to help me cut the ribbon,” he clarified.

“Oh…” She glanced back at the waiting table. The press was positioned near it, their hands on their cameras, more than one was casting an impatient look toward Tarak. “Sure.”

As far as a professional response went, it lacked a lot. But saying “yes, sir” just seemed too submissive. A large part of her flatly rebelled. It was a system-wide rejection, one she was sure she hadn’t experienced before in her life. No man had ever unleashed such a bundle of emotions inside her.

Or so much heat.

Get a grip, girl…

And fast too. It was her frickin’ boss.

He caught her hand. The contact was jarring. She flinched, pulling free. His lips curled, just a tiny amount, flashing his teeth at her before he reached out and renewed his grasp on her hand. His gaze settled on her lips for a moment, causing her breath to catch.

“They are ready for you, Mr. Nektosha,” one of the dark-suited bodyguards informed him quietly.

“Of course.”

He stepped forward, settling her hand on his arm. His shoulder rose above her own as he swept her toward the table. She felt petite and scoffed at her own foolishness.

She was wearing a garter belt for Christ’s sake.

But you’re trembling like a virgin.

“Smile at them…” he leaned down and whispered. “And at me.”

He kept a firm hand on top of hers as he guided her toward the tables. The distance seemed to triple as the camera lenses were pointed at her. The flashes popped, blinding her to everything but her escort. Everyone beyond them was just a shape in the shadows.

Tarak was right at home. He strode down the path, nodding at those waiting to see his performance. The quartet played a fanfare as they arrived at the velvet ribbon. He eased her into place, the position of his hand perfect. He just seemed to know how to touch her. One hand cupping her hip and slipping across her lower back to gently push her in front of him. Once he was behind her, she shivered as his size dwarfed her. He caught her hip once more, his fingers spreading out over her belly and securing her in place. The breeze coming off the ocean was cool, but she could feel his body heat against her back. She was still caught in the hold of arousal. Her clit was throbbing and whining for attention.

Her timing couldn’t have been worse.

Please tell us a bit about your latest release.

It’s been a while since I let Dawn Ryder out. She’s my naughty inner child when it comes to writing. Out of Bounds is more erotic and sort of a clash of forces sort of book.

Are you attending any conventions in 2014? If so, what are the top three reasons as to why you like/choose them?

I just returned from the Romantic Times Book Lovers convention. I will attend Romance Writers of America and Romancing the Lakes. Each one is unique but if there is even one person who wants to get a signed book from me, it’s worth the trip.

What is your favorite romance genre and what author makes you absolutely swoon?

My favorite? Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of erotic contempary. I do have a fondness for military heroes. But I still adore historical. I’ve also been reading a lot of classics. The last was ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird.’

What is your dream vacation spot?

A cruise ship. I love to go to sea, with all the amenities of course. I adore being on the water.

What do you think has been the most important moment or event of your life so far? And why do you feel that way?

My healthy birth. If my mother hadn’t had me, I would never have had the opportunity to try anything. Being born healthy is the greatest gift because I can choose to try things.

Is there anything else you would like our readers to know?

Thank you for reading!
