#BlogTour - Tempting Beat by Brooklyn Ann / @Brooklyn__Ann | #BookBlast, Spreading the Word & GC #Giveaways @GoddessFish



This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. One randomly drawn commenter will receive $15 in Boroughs Bucks. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.


YOU NEVER KNOW…


Bleeding Vengeance’s drummer, Roderick Powell knows he’s a sod for feeling glum, especially after moving into a beautiful new home in a smart Denver suburb. But all his mates are partnered or married, and dreadfully happy. It’s enough to make a rockstar rethink his options. And even though his sexy neighbor has given him the brush-off, he’s decided to have another go – at this point he has nothing left to lose, apart from his heart.


WHAT LIES BENEATH


Gwen Mason’s romantic past has been bumpier than most – twice divorced by thirty, she’s had enough of broken promises. An ER nurse who keeps a brutal schedule, she’s happy to become known as the neighborhood crazy cat lady. But…the most delicious man has moved next door. He’s British, he’s famous, he’s a rockstar. And, hard as she tries, Gwen can't keep Rod Powell from breaking all her rules, and suddenly she sees a future she never believed possible.


Read an Excerpt:

When Gwen stepped out onto her porch, it seemed her neighbor, Mrs. Kersh, had the same idea. Gwen saw her striding across the street before Gwen looked over and saw the moving truck next door.

“Our new neighbor has finally arrived,” Mrs. Kersh said in a somewhat scolding tone, as if the new homeowner was tardy in taking up residence. “I do wish I’d been home to see more of the prospective buyers touring the property.”

Gwen nodded. As an ER nurse, she worked twelve-hour shifts alternating between three and four days a week and almost always on the weekends, when most people perused houses for sale. She’d been working during the open house, and also missed the people who came after to look at the home. “I hope whoever bought the place is a nice person.”

Mrs. Kersh huffed. “I hope they’re quiet and don’t have a dog. The last people were atrocious, leaving that mutt in the yard to yap all the time.”

The last people were also major jerks, Gwen thought as she watched the movers pile out of the truck and begin unloading furniture. Their barking dog and loud children had cost her precious hours of sleep. Still, she couldn’t help but give Mrs. Kersh a sideways smile and glance down at Molly, the little terrier that was ever at Mrs. Kersh’s side.

Mrs. Kersh’s eyes widened with blatant terror. “Oh no.”

An older silver Honda CR-V pulled behind the moving truck and a man got out with a happy smile and a proprietary gleam in his eyes as he met the moving truck with a fob of jingling keys.

Holy hotness. Gwen almost breathed the words aloud as her belly tilted at the sight of the man striding up the walkway of the house next door. Shoulder-length chocolate-brown hair framed a face that was worthy of a magazine cover. Gray eyes danced with a touch of mischief. His lips were arched and full, making it impossible not to think of kissing.

Which was something Gwen could never do, because aside from that not being neighborly, he was clearly too young for her. If he was older than twenty-five, Gwen would eat her scrubs.

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 1461 KB | Release Date: April 25, 2013 | Publisher: Self-Published | Obtained: Amazon

"Finding Her Rhythm" [Backstage Pass Series, Book 1] by Dani Wade

Author's Book Description : He’s a rock star with the world at his feet—but he’d rather have her there.

Taylor Jemison lost everything when her first dip into the world of consensual kink went wrong, and she wound up on the run from a dangerous ex. Driven from her home and the teaching job she loved, she needs a safe haven. As nanny for a rock star, she’ll live behind gated walls with a private security team. As for the teens’ sexy dad … he’ll be on the road most of the time. That’s good, because one touch of his strong hands leaves her body and heart craving submission to his commands.

Guitarist Michael Korvello may have a rep as an all-in, balls-out hard-rock star with a penchant for kink, but he keeps his personal life firmly separated from his home and his kids. One look at the curvy little nanny, and he knows she can’t stay, because her big green eyes say she craves the control he wants to wield. And though Michael can have any number of beautiful women, he aches for one who’ll truly accept him—inside and out.

Just when neither can deny their need for each other, Taylor’s ex surfaces, intent on taking back what he considers his, and ready to destroy Michael’s world to get her. Can two kindred souls protect their private passion from an outsider bent on ripping them apart?

Don’t miss this sizzling, sensual peek into the private world of a rock star — get your copy of "FINDING HER RHYTHM" today!

"More Than Meets the Eye" [The Patchwork Family Series, Book 1] by Karen Witemeyer

Author's Book Description : Many consider Evangeline Hamilton cursed. Orphaned at a young age and possessing a pair of mismatched eyes--one bright blue, the other dark brown--Eva has fought to find her way in a world that constantly rejects her. Yet the support of even one person can help overcome the world's judgments, and Eva has two--Seth and Zach, two former orphans she now counts as brothers.

Seeking justice against the man who stole his birthright and destroyed his family, Logan Fowler arrives in 1880s Pecan Gap, Texas, to confront Zach Hamilton, the hardened criminal responsible for his father's death. Only instead of finding a solitary ruthless gambler, he discovers a man not much older than himself with an unusual family. When Zach's sister, Evangeline, insists on dousing Logan with sunshine every time their paths cross, Logan finds his quest completely derailed. Who is truly responsible for his lost legacy, and will restoring the past satisfy if it means forfeiting a future with Evangeline?

"When In Texas" [Blame it on Texas Series] by Lynda Simmons

Author's Book Description : Jenna Scott loves the open road, solo camping and feeding people. A self-taught chef and lifelong vegetarian, she can’t wait to open her first restaurant and prove that you can make friends with salad. But in Clifton Texas?

Rancher and retailer, Alex Barclay, knows Texans live for steak and brisket. But kale and quinoa? Not so much. While the vegetarian is about as cute as a woman can get, she’s also more than naïve about her business prospects in Clifton. But she has the right to fail anywhere she likes.

The town’s elder statesman disagrees. As far as he’s concerned, Jenna is the next natural disaster to hit cattle country. An insult to ranchers and a menace to the Texas economy.

When he takes a hard line against Jenna, refusing to rent her the space they agreed upon, Jenna is left with spoiling supplies, broken dreams and nowhere to go. Alex’s sense of fair play won’t let him stand back and do nothing. His brother runs a café inside Alex’s store, a space which will be empty for two more weeks until his brother gets back from France. Knowing it will turn a lot of folks against him, Alex offers to let Jenna open a pop-up restaurant in the café anyway. Two weeks to prove that statesman wrong. To show the town that kale and quinoa can indeed live happily ever after with steak and brisket.

Jenna can either accept Alex’s help or get back in her camper and drive, letting that narrow-minded statesman win. A pop-up isn’t what she planned, but Jenna has never been the type to back down from a fight. And for the first time since she can remember, the open road is not as appealing as the cowboy who wants her to stay.

* The Blame it on Texas Series is a Kindle Worlds series based in the universe of Carolyn Brown's "Long, Hot Texas Summer" and "Daisies in the Canyon."

It's time to #GetLoud about Book Stuffing | #FightLikeaRomanceAuthor - Fangirling @HeatherCLeigh, #SLawrence, @SuzanTisdale, @DakotaWillink, & @BSommerland

So this is the first time I feel confident in talking about a heavy topic. And that topic is book stuffing/page stuffers. I have two videos for you. The first one is the video I actually talk about my thoughts on book stuffing and talk about an author who I had reviewed a book stuffed "novel" for previously when I was not familiar with the term. The second video is one that I had created in April 2018, when I just complain about this author tactic yet hadn't known the correct terms for it at that time.

BUT FIRST this is the NEW RULES that Amazon has in regards to "BONUS CONTENT"

    1) Authors already impacted by creative-obstruction (10%), and
    2) Romance Writers of America (RWA) (90%) as a general donation intended for their Advocacy Fund.

Who's Getting Cocky Now? Find out here because there is a Rebellion brewing ... | Fangirling #thisishowyouindie, @kneupperwriter, @selfpubwithdale, @BSommerland, & @MistressofReads

I hope I'm not loosing anyone here because of these posts but I feel obligated to share the knowledgeable information (as much as I can keep on top of) about the CockyGate fiasco. It seems a bit crazy to me that we have to keep talking about it because it is not going away ... at least not easily ... mostly because (as Bianca Sommerland calls her) the Trademark Troll doesn't seem to want to drop the issue (her Cocky trademark). So here is more info for you about what else has been going on so Jess can keep you updated ...

First though I want to show you the GOOD that has happened because of this fiasco and it is called #thisishowyouindie! Below is the live twitter feed for that hashtag. 🙂


Okay NOW for the FIASCO, opps! I meant COCKYGATE updates!

Jess is ALL about the #ThisIsHowYouIndie and #AuthorSupport | Fangirling @AuthorEYork, @jessicabfry, @LMBrownAuthor, @eBookBuilders, & @Jenny_Trout

Over the past few days I've seen a lot of author reactions over on twitter about this CockyGate fiasco ... and it is RIGHTFULLY SO ... this is TERRIBLE and should NOT happen for ANY common words. I feel like everyone in the book world NEEDS to be on top of this to some degree so like many people I was VERY happy when I found out that CockyBot was created. And if you want to stay on top of it I say check out their link OR go here to see their feed on my blog.

But what this blog post is TRULY about is my sharing of some new-to-me authors who have decided to be more open about this fiasco that is happening. Also ... be sure to check out Cassie Sharp's "Open Letter to Faleena Hopkins" here. So ... here we go ... and be sure to check out the end of this post to see the video the Trademark Troll had previously posted on her Facebook page but deleted off ...

We're Getting A Bit "Cockier" on #teamfreethecocky | Fangirling @NASTYGALREVIEWS

While I would LOVE to rant about this whole #CockyGate topic because I feel Ms. Hopkins is a very wishy-washy person in her actions and verbiage, as I was saying earlier today. Especially after all the information we were talking about yesterday I can definitely say she has portrayed herself to be an unreliable source for yourself (which is sad). But her lies just keep coming. THEREFORE, I am so happy I found out about NASTY GAL BOOK REVIEWS as they are staying on top of this situation and report it beautifully!!

Therefore I am THRILLED when I found these videos from Mistress of Reads, Bianca Sommerland, & Sasha White ... please check them out below.

ALSO as I was putting together this blog post I was notified through twitter about another AMAZING blog post that was posted. And because it is soo good and well-written I am sharing Cassie Sharp's open letter below too.

Are Goodreads Reviews REALLY for the authors? | And Jessica's Fangirling Anne R. Allen / @annerallen

This morning I was in a Twitter Discussion about "are Goodreads Reviews REALLY for the authors." My standpoint (which will never change no matter what you say) is that any review (good or bad) about the book it is listed as a review for IS FOR THAT AUTHOR too. It is for readers yes, of course BUT it is supposed to be a book review about the authors novel and I wholeheartedly believe that book reviews are always 50% about the reviewer's thoughts and personal issues .. and 50% about the novel itself. I mean a prefect example of this would be my review for Joan Kilby's "The Secret Son." Also, as an author assistant for the past 2 years, I understand that EVERY review matters .. even those over on Goodreads. Therefore, after this morning's discussion, I went on a google search & I saw a LOT of opposing viewpoints. Yet, I found this one that I seem to agree on ALL this author's points & really liked her tips. So, I am deciding to share ...

Cooper's Bedtime by Hallmark & Stacey Donovan / Illustrated by Crista Couch | #BookReview, Spreading the Word & From My Kids to You

Today I'm showing off Hallmark's "Cooper's Bedtime."



"Cooper's Bedtime"
[Book 3]

by Hallmark & Stacey Donovan
Illustrated by Crista Couch

My Book Description :
    Follow Cooper as he tries to go to bed. But is being in bed really more fun than staying up and seeing what all the unusual noises are? I'm not sure. But what Cooper imagines the noises could be is quite interesting and silly. 😋
