September Open Thread for Authors (Author Promo)

The rules for Author Promo Night Open Thread are as follows:

  • The book has to be released in that month (i.e., anything released during the last week of April would be a May release)
  • You can post for yourself or you can have a friend post for you if the idea of posting about your book paralyzes you .
  • No self published authors unless you write romance. No, I am not a POD hater, I am just thinking about the manageability of the thread.
  • Think about the readership. I.e., does your non fiction book about psoriasis really fit?
  • This one is more of a guideline than a rule, but be smart about your comment because if it is just a link to your website and the title of your book, I doubt you are going to get any interest.
  • DA reserves the right to delete the post if it promotes objectionable content (i.e., no daddy/daughter incest recommends are going to be allowed. Sorry.)

That’s it. Post away.

    Mr. Fix-It
    Genesis Press/Indigo Love Spectrum

    Mr. Fix-It is a riveting tale of a hot handyman who loosens the screws of an uptight romance novelist who doesn’t believe in love.

    Awl's well that ends well?
    On the eve of her acceptance of the Torchbearer Award, an industry honor for the romance writer who best represents the genre, Khela Halliday reveals the deepest, darkest secret of her heart-‘that she doesn't believe in love. Not at first sight, second glance, everlasting or springing eternal. But love just might be in Khela's future when handsome handyman Carter Radcliffe helps her save face during the award's weekend ceremonies. Alluring, intelligent and delightfully wacky, Khela interests Carter more than he'd like. Women typically wanted only one thing from him, and rarely was it the one thing he wanted to give. Through Khela's books, Carter finds the tools to unlock her impenetrable heart, all the while wondering if he can raze his own defenses to let her into his.

    Release Date: September 2008
    ISBN-10: 0-373-86083-8
    ISBN-13: 978-0-373-86083-8

    Blurb:

    WHERE THERE’S SMOKE…

    After a career-threatening injury, brooding firefighter Joel Hightower’s only hope of regaining his cherished livelihood is a sassy spitfire named Samantha Dash. As the by-the-book physical therapist helps Joel get ever closer to achieving his professional goals, Samantha also ignites a sensual spark in him that he finds impossible to ignore!

    THERE’S FIRE

    Samantha is totally unprepared for the sizzling attraction that intensifies each time she is near “Tall, Dark and Surly” Hightower. As she helps Joel get better, their relationship goes way beyond patient and therapist. It flares into full blown passion. But when it threatens to end her career, Samantha must decide if a future as the partner of a risk-taking hero is really worth fighting for?

    Here's what critics are already saying about this hot new novel:

    “Gwyneth Bolton certainly doesn't skimp on the heat level in her newest release MAKE IT HOT. Samantha and Joel have spirited natures and seem to take great delight in antagonizing each other. They're a fun couple to read about and kept me smiling through each ‘confrontation.' Samantha's relationship with her mother really struck a chord with me. So many people choose alcohol to dull their pain of loss never realizing the devastation it causes their loved ones. There's plenty of action, fun, and emotional context to ensure readers' become immersed in this storyline and remain enchanted through to the end. The Hightower brothers are honorable, loyal men who make a girl dream of finding her own hero.” ~ Chrissy Dionne of Romance Junkies, 5 Blue Ribbons

    “Bolton combines the sexy allure of the Hightower family with the determination of Samantha Dash. Samantha turns her sad past into a promising future as she learns to forgive and finally embrace the idea of new relationships. Joel learns how to enjoy life while opening his heart to others. The supporting cast of characters adds humor and drama to the storyline. MAKE IT HOT is a fast paced, easy to read romance that will make you talk out loud to the characters (Aunt Sophie especially) and remind you why family gatherings are so enjoyable. Hopefully, Bolton will keep supplying us with loving stories of the Hightower's for years to come.” ~ Monique Bruner “The Delta Reviewer” of The Real Page Turners, 5 Stars

    “MAKE IT HOT will make you feel the heat between Joel and Samantha as their relationship goes from patient/client, friends to lovers. As their relationship developed, both characters were forced to make drastic decisions about their careers and about themselves. I enjoyed the first book and found this one to be twice as entertaining. This is a series that should not be passed over and I eagerly wait to read the next story.” ~ Priscilla C. Johnson, APOOO Book Club, 4.5 Stars

    “A tough hero, a sassy heroine and a great story of triumph over adversity in MAKE IT HOT, by Gwyneth Bolton. When firefighter Joel Hightower is severely injured on the job, he discovers just how much his career means to him. As part of a family of firefighters and police officers, he cannot fathom doing anything else. Physical therapist Samantha Dash works hard to assist her patients while dealing with her own personal drama. Guilt inflicted by her alcoholic mother concerning her own police officer father’s death has caused her to shy away from men with dangerous jobs. When Joel is assigned to Samantha, he’s a bitter, grouchy man. Can they overcome their obstacles to be together?” ~ Debbie Sims, Romantic Times Book Review, 4 Stars

    Jinx, the third book in my Bigtime superhero series, comes out tomorrow in mass market (Sept. 2). The first two books in the series, Karma Girl and Hot Mama, were also recently released in mass market. Here’s the blurb for Jinx:

    She never wanted to be a superhero. Too much danger. Too much spandex …

    Bella Bulluci's big passion is the arts. Her big pain is being born into a family of superheroes. Of course, Bella might feel differently if her own superpower was one she could control – or at least get some use out of. Instead, her power is one of capricious luck – supercharged telekinesis. In other words, static electricity. Bella knows that's not a power – just a jinx.

    During a gala fundraiser for the local art museum, Bella comes upon two things no Bigtime supergirl should be without: an ubervillain of her very own who plans to steal a priceless gem; and a dashing – if slightly shady – stranger named Debonair. He may have a reputation as a notorious playboy, but the real sparks are going to come from Bella, who's finally going to learn just how well love and danger can go together …

    My Bigtime books — Karma Girl, Hot Mama, and now Jinx — are basically fun fantasies with sex, lies, and superheroes. So if you’re looking for one last breezy beach read before summer ends, check ‘em out.

    On September 2, DARK HUNGER, the second book in my Brethren Series of vampire romance hits bookstores shelves nationwide. Continuing the story introduced in last year's DARK THIRST, which Romantic Times magazine called a “new twist on the vampire legend,” DARK HUNGER takes readers on a whirlwind, cross-country adventure.

    Tessa Noble-Davenant will do anything to protect her brother, Brandon, even if that means traveling across from New Orleans to California with Rene Morin. A cynical, brooding, yet startling sexy vampire, Rene seems to take pleasure in finding fault with Tessa's every move. Despite this, a sensual attraction begins to develop between the two, one to which neither can afford to succumb. Rene and Tessa are being followed — and a single misstep will put them at the mercy of forces more dark and powerful than they can even imagine…

    New York Times best-selling author Lara Adrian calls DARK HUNGER “a paranormal treat to be savored” while Romantic Times hails, “[Reinke is] definitely an author to watch!”

    DARK HUNGER is available in mass market paperback from Kensington Publishing's Zebra imprint for only $4.99. You'll find an excerpt, purchase links, the promotional video and more online at http://www.sarareinke.com.

    That’s the “official” spiel. *g* You’re also invited to check out author Lynda Hilburn’s blog today, September 1, where I’ll be guest-blogging! http://paranormalityuniverse.blogspot.com/ I’ll be giving away a signed copy of “Dark Thirst,” the first in The Brethren Series to one lucky commenter!

    Serena's found the perfect lover–too bad he's her worst enemy.

    Dante’s Inferno, a novella-length erotic romance set in 18th century Venice, is debuting at Samhain September 2nd. It’s sexy-funny-sweet and an award winner. Please come by and check it out.

    You can visit my website as well for more information: http://www.eviebyrne.com

    A snippet of seduction:

    Afraid to lose her again, Dante gambled on frankness. It would either frighten her away or reel her in. Keeping hold of her hand, he stood as close to her as he could without touching her, and spoke into her ear. “Last night you came out seeking pleasure, did you not? You didn't find as much of it as you could with me, and I regret that. If you would spend tonight with me, I will show you pleasure beyond imagining.”

    “You think much of your abilities, sir,” she said, trying to reclaim her hand.

    This show of coyness amused him, considering her manners the night before. “I am confident in my talents.”

    “Tell me, does one need talent to lie with whores?”

    Dante could not repress a smile. He rather liked women with claws. “Whores will teach you many things you cannot learn from ladies.”

    Storm Warning (Shadow Destroyers Book Three)

    Journalist Blair Murphy is on the trail of a hot lead when she meets an even hotter stranger. Charmed by Drew Reid's sexy smile and intrigued by his evasive answers, Blair puts aside her undercover investigation of a corrupt politician for an under-the-covers investigation of every inch of his incredible body. But even after Drew satisfies her in every possible way, he refuses to satisfy her curiosity. Especially about the mystery woman who keeps calling his cell phone.

    As a burnt-out demon slayer, the last thing Drew needs is an inquisitive woman complicating his life, especially when she turns out to be the one woman who's strictly off limits-‘his partner's sister. He knows firsthand why it's important to keep loved ones at a distance, yet the fierce desire Blair arouses makes it impossible to stay away.

    Just as Drew prepares to hang up his sword for a normal life, a vicious attack on Blair awakens a storm of powers inside her that rage beyond her control. As her emerging abilities become increasingly unstable, their searing passion could be her salvation-‘or destroy them both.

    It's not the past that wounds us…it's the ghosts we hold onto.

    Hearts Awakened by Linda Winfree
    Book Six of the Hearts of the South series

    A lifetime ago Mark Cook's pregnant wife vanished, taking everything and leaving an empty, aching hole in his life. Since then, as penance for his failure as a husband and father, he's refused to allow himself to live. Refused to lay his sleeping heart on the line for any woman.

    Enter Tori Calvert, his best friend's baby sister. Suddenly, against his will-‘and against his better judgment-‘that same damaged heart seems determined to reawaken. And Mark's not sure he can withstand the pain.

    When she was a teenager, a vicious attack ripped away Tori's very essence as a woman. Finally she feels ready to focus her existence on something other than her job as a rape crisis counselor. And to step outside the shelter of her loving, protective family. She trusts Mark more than any man, yet fear holds her back.

    Fear that even the healing light of love may not be enough to banish the shadows of the past.

    Interesting that Jennifer Crusie is being discussed on the home page today because my debut romantic suspense APHRODISIAC , which just came out on September 2, is being compared to her stuff. And Susan Elizabeth Phillips compared it to Janet Evanovich -“Stephanie Plum, meet Saylor Oz. APHRODISIAC is sexy, suspenseful and laugh-out-loud funny.”

    Brooklyn sex therapist Saylor Oz pursues her suspicions around the suicide of a childhood friend who was a perfume-maker. But it turns into a deadly seven-day race to find the secret that friend was killed for — a secret that was supposedly left to Saylor. The romance centers around a smoking hot, way too gorgeous boxer who deliciously complicates matters.

    This is the first book in the Saylor Oz series. Tiny and warmhearted, Saylor had the horrendous high school nickname, The Munchkin. Thanks to her headstrong nature and intuitive hunches along with her lifelong disdain for bullies, the hip Brooklyn sex doc winds up in all kinds of dangerous situations.

    Body & Soul introduces Victor Bayne to yet another new Stiff partner to compliment his Psych half of the PsyCop team. Bob Zigler is an old-school cop who outclasses Vic in every way. But are his detective skills sharp enough to help Vic find a trio of missing people who may not even be dead? As if his day job isn’t stressful enough, Vic agrees to cement his relationship with Jacob by buying a condo together. Too bad every vacant building in Chicago seems to have a firmly entrenched resident from the spirit world.

    It’s moving day in Secrets, and Vic’s not beyond using sex mojo to keep Jacob from hauling all his furniture to the thrift store. The new home brings a new computer network, and with it, Vic’s realization that there’s absolutely nothing about him online. The Psych training facility affectionately known as Camp Hell is nonexistent, too. Everyone claims to be protecting Vic’s privacy, but the whole thing spells “coverup” to him. Even Jacob seems to know more about the Internet silence than Vic. What other secrets has Jacob been keeping?

    A Star Gem in the Rough by Lorelei Colton.

    Can lost loves reunite?

    Bellanca Stareck can have almost anything in the known universe she wants. Unlike her power and fortune hungry father and sister, the only she truly wants is to find her missing brother. Or so she thought. Even before her brother disappeared, she felt some was lacking in her life. She was never sure what it was until she went to Sakella to search for him and she finds something more precious than money.

    Roan Ravenshear will never forget Bellanca Stareck, the only woman he ever truly loved. He's been dreaming about her for the past years. Her father deemed Roan unworthy of Bellanca. He always regretted being forced to leave. But Roan was determined to make a fortune of his own and prove himself worthy of her. What happens when he finally comes face to face with her?

    Roan Ravenshear walked down the street. The meeting with Quarta Jewelers went well. He wished he could say the same about his other appointment. In his opinion, that appointment was the more important one. If only he could get his release papers and his ship released.
    Damn Sakella government.
    Things were taking too long. He hated this helpless feeling and was tired of being told to be patient. It didn't seem to matter he was honorably discharged from the Sakellan military a few months ago. He was allowed to return to civilian life, but not allowed to leave the planet. It didn't make sense since he was a citizen of Vesmur, not Sakella.
    He shouldn't have been a part of their war in the first place. The reason he was drafted was because he owned land here. The Sakellan military all but drooled when they found out about his record as a fighter pilot with the Alliance eight years ago. The military life wasn't for him. He hated living by someone else's schedule and rules. Thoughts of an old holo-photo of one woman was the only thing that kept him going during the war. That dream seemed so vivid. Nothing was going to stop him from going to her when he got his clearance to leave.
    The sun came out from behind the clouds and blinded him. He bumped into a woman as he pulled his sunglasses out of his jacket pocket. “Sorry ma'am.” He sensed a familiar mind. His vision cleared as he looked down at her. It can't be her.
    The dark haired woman stared up at him with green eyes.
    “Bella?” Her name came out like an answered prayer. He lifted his sunglasses to get better look.
    She froze where she stood. He swore he must've been seeing a mirage or dreaming. The cold air slapped him in the face, reminding him he was awake. He felt a light touch of her mind. It was really her.
