Overview:

Maya just wasn’t in the mood for a wedding. Yeah, her best friend in college had pulled out all the stops for it at this paradise destination. A remote tropical island and a plethora of hopefully available men with hungry eyes: it’s enough to make a girl forget her troubles for a week. But there was something nagging at the back of her head, something just didn’t seem right.

Adam was always a bit distant from his family, so when he got the invitation to his cousin’s destination wedding on a tropical island, he didn’t know what to think. Tons of questions swirled in his head, but he shoved them all aside for the time being. Nothing would be gained from trying to decipher his cousin’s intentions, and was he really in a position to look a gift vacation in the mouth? Even a Bear Shifter could appreciate a little splash in the water every now and then…

After all, what could possibly go wrong?

This 11,000+ word Novella contains handsome Groomsman Bear Shifter hotness, a Happily Ever After, No Cheating and No Cliffhanger! Also included are some free bonus stories as my thanks to you.

Tammy Review

WOW this book was a bit intense. We start off at a wedding and end up with some danger. What could possibly happen next?

Pages: 159

Overview:

He makes me forget what’s important… 
Vincent Charles Brownstone III—alpha wolf shifter, British, and an arrogant playboy. He’s the firstborn son of one of London’s elite families. He’s also sinfully handsome, with a rock hard body and eyes that make me think of wicked things. I know I’m a part of that world too, but I’m human 
and I’m American—two things that make me very different from the others. And I have bigger things to worry about, like finding my best friend. She’s missing and it’s my fault.

So, if Vincent Charles Brownstone III could just stay out of my head, and out of my life, that’d be great. Right? If only it were that easy…

I left home for a damn good reason, but for her I’d stay… 
I didn’t want to come back home to England, but I go where the mission takes me. It’s my job to do the impossible, to go undercover and root out hidden secrets. American shifters have gone missing, so now I don’t have a choice. I 
have to face my past.

I didn’t expect to run smack-bang into my true mate in a crowded London street. She’s tiny, with delicious curves and big brown eyes, and she’s playing hard to get. I’m smitten.

But will she see the man I really am, behind the cover-story and hidden past, or will she judge me like all the others?

I’ve got my plate full: missing shifters to find, a past to outrun, and the woman of my dreams to win over.

Good thing I love a challenge.

About WOOD, releasing October 18th

It was a bad idea.

I followed my hot professor on a research trip to a mountainous island in the middle of freaking nowhere because of a stupid schoolgirl crush and because hey, it was something to do. When hot prof turns out to be not so hot for me, my search for a quiet place sends me to a hidden cave in the woods. Little did I know that a storm on the lake would fling me into a dangerous and different world. One where raw, tough warriors threatened my life, and a sexually tense, axe-wielding woodsman from my wildest fantasies would toss me over his shoulder—barbarian style.

I had no idea where I was or how to get home, but hey, why the hurry? Filthy talking McLumberpants was hot, severe, dirty as all hell, and while we were completely different people, we had one thing in common. Complete lust for one another—that got completely out of control.

But when lightning hits again, opening a path to home, I had to wonder… where, exactly, was that?

About Lauren Hawkeye

Lauren Hawkeye/ Lauren Jameson never imagined that she’d wind up telling stories for a living… though when she looks back, it’s easy to see that she’s the only one who is surprised. Always “the kid who read all the time”, Lauren made up stories about her favorite characters once she’d finished a book… and once spent an entire year narrating her own life internally. No, really. But where she was just plain odd before publication, now she can at least claim to have an artistic temperament.

Lauren lives in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada with her husband, toddler, pit bull and idiot cat, though they do not live in an igloo, nor do they drive a dogsled. In her nonexistent spare time Lauren can be found knitting (her husband claims that her snobby yarn collection is exorbitant), reading anything she can get her hands on, or sweating her way through spin class. She loves to hear from her readers!

Goodreads

book blurb

When I landed the best bartending job in downtown Chicago, the rules were as clear as the Grey Goose martini I mixed for him. Don’t sleep with the patrons. I had no problem with that. Money didn’t impress me. But Damon Baxter’s eyes did. Midnight blue, just like the name of his nightclub. The way they undressed me made me consider risking the most sought after job in the service industry. Nailing the position had been hard. Obeying the rules? Even harder.

Good thing I like it hard. I was never one for following orders. For one night with him, I would have sold my soul to the devil. And that’s exactly what I did. Let me tell you, hell in the company of Damon Baxter was blissfully hot. I offered him a single night of pleasure, but when he demanded another in that deep and sexy whisper, what could I say? He was my boss, and I always aimed to please…when it pleased me.

He didn’t care that I broke his rules. But was I ready to break my own?

excerpt

As my gaze roamed from group to group, I was struck by the broad range of patrons. There were a few celebrities in the mix—professional athletes, local newsmen, and the sort. A lot of businessmen and the women who chase them. Both young and old. But they all had one thing in common besides the fact that they’d been invited to experience The Lounge; they all wore extravagant clothing and jewelry.

Gucci. Armani. Louis Vuitton. Fendi. Valentino. Dior. Versace. I clicked through the names as I scanned the crowd, and that was when I saw him…staring at me with an intensity that stole my breath away. One second gazing into his eyes told me he had already raked his mouth down my neck and suckled the sensitive skin between my breasts with his luscious lips. I could almost feel his mouth enclose around my hardened nipples and the sharp flick of his tongue.

The color of his eyes eluded me, neither dark brown nor light blue. His stance was bold. His custom-tailored suit had clean lines, and a stark white shirt hinted that he spent hours in an office. But the day-old stubble on his face proved he didn’t mind getting dirty when he felt like it.

Was he staking a claim with his direct stare? Because I already felt like he owned me. My heart fluttered in response to the raw masculinity he exuded. Confident. Brazen. Unapologetic. Everything I adored in a man rolled into one sweet package.

My tongue swept across my bottom lip, causing the corner of his mouth to curve up. Sweet Jesus. He could feel me mentally undressing him as well. Stopping was not an option. Not when I wanted to run my fingers through his thick hair, cut stylishly long on top and tapering down until the short hair hugged the back of his head, stopping right where it met the collar of his shirt. He was older than my usual type. But he was spectacular. And I knew right then and there that I’d break the rules for him.

With a tilt of my head, I smiled and then lowered my eyes to resume slicing the lemon that lay untouched in my hands, dismissing him. And then I waited for him to come to me.

Like I knew he would.

Life could have been different for Evie Meyers. If only she wasn’t a freak.

She wouldn’t be hiding from the Rain, a secret organization intent on destroying all supernatural creatures. Neither would she have run from Clay, the object of her desire.

Her hope for love and a normal life shattered when Clay stumbled onto her biggest secret and revealed one of his own in the process—he’s a soldier for the Rain. Learning that Clay was a threat to her survival, Evie had no choice but to flee.

Now Clay’s back—battle-scarred and mysterious—and the attraction between them is undeniable. Stuck on opposite sides in the war between humans and the supernatural, there seems little hope for a happily ever after. Caught between what her heart wants and what her head knows, something has to give. What will she choose? And what price will she have to pay?

Release Blitz :: GIAN

Title: GIAN
Series: Trassato Crime Family #1
Author: Lisa Cardiff
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 28, 2016
I only ever had one dream—my name in bright lights for the world to see. And I had a plan to make it all happen.

Move to New York. Find an agent. Work hard. Then with a little luck mixed in with some natural talent, I’d be a Broadway star.

One devastating injury and a broken engagement later, I have nothing to show for my life except an empty bank account and a jaded heart.Desperate to salvage my dreams, I agree to interview for a job with my best friend’s brother, Gian Trassato.

Gian is charming. He’s magnetic. He’s connected to the Trassato Crime Family, and everything I should stay away from, but I don’t have a choice. I need the job. 

Just when I thought I was about to get my life and career back on track, I make one thoughtless mistake. I go back to the club to pick up my purse and witness something Gian’s enemies would kill to keep secret.

Now I’m being sucked deeper and deeper into a terrifying world I don’t understand…

Friends and enemies are interchangeable. Honor and family are everything. And the scariest part of all…I might actually be getting lost in Gian.

“Sexy. Gritty. Passionate. Intense. Gian is going to rock your world.”


“I really liked this book. Clubs, Mobsters, drive-bys oh my!”

I wanted to spend the night getting lost in this woman. I wanted to kiss her. Taste her. Adore her. I wanted to put the past and the future in a sealed box and pretend it didn’t exist for a few hours.

I should walk out this door right now, but the longer I looked at her, the more my logic crumbled. I leaned forward, my lips only a whisper away from hers. My brain cells scrambled.

I smelled a hint of jasmine. I saw the tiny gold flecks in her otherwise dark irises. I counted the sprinkle of freckles on her nose. She had seven. It was my new favorite number.

Fuck Tony. He could wait.

“Evie,” I groaned, unable to resist any longer. She was the forbidden fruit, and I needed another taste of her brand of sin. I let my lips glide across hers. Once. Twice. Her eyes drifted closed, and a faint hum slipped through her full lips.

“Gian, what the hell are we doing?”

“I don’t know.” And I didn’t. This was madness.

After spending years practicing law and running a real estate development company with her husband, Lisa decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer and she must confess that inventing characters is so much more fun than writing contracts and legal briefs. A native of Colorado, she lives with her husband and three children in Denver.
