QUESTIONS....


From the messages I’ve received over the weekend it seems my news hasn’t reached everyone (thanks fb!) and I’ve also had a lot of questions regarding WTS release … so instead of replying to each message I’ll answer the questions in the hope they reach everyone … Wethering the Storm won’t be released 21st December as I have signed with Montlake (Amazon) in a 2 book deal for the Storm books. I don’t have a set date for WTS release. All I currently know is that the release won’t be any later than April 2013, but Montlake are working for an earlier date. As soon as I have the exact release date, you guys will be the first to know – I promise! WTS will also go up for pre order, once again when I know, I’ll let you all know :)

In regards to Blood Lies the third book in the AJ series … that will be released as a self-pub, and I’m aiming for Spring 2013.

I hope I’ve covered everything! If not and you have any more questions, please feel free to ask me on this thread and I’ll do my best to answer them :)

NEWS....


So I said the next time I posted about Wethering the Storm it would be good news.

I have good news.

Actually I have fantastic news….

I’m really thrilled to announce to you all that I have signed a two-book deal for The Mighty Storm and Wethering the Storm with Montlake (Amazon).

I just want to say thank you to each and every single one of my readers. Thank you for buying TMS, reading it, loving it, telling your family and friends about it. If it weren’t for you then I wouldn’t be putting this message out right now. And I also want to say a huge thank you to my amazing agent Adrienne Lombardo at Trident Media for knocking this one out of the ballpark.

Things are going to get a little crazier for me workwise, and you know how I like to respond to each and every one of your messages and emails, so if you could just bear with me over the next few months as it might take me a little longer to get back to you all.

And lastly…..

I GOT SIGNED!!!!!! HOLY FREAKING HELL!!!!!!!! ;)

Love ya’s

**IMPORTANT ‘WETHERING THE STORM’ NEWS**

Wethering The Storm won’t be released on the 21st December.

I know I can hear you all shouting at me from here, WHY??! … There is a really, really good reason, I promise, just not one I can't share with you at the moment.

Wethering The Storm Teaser #3!!


“You know we could get pulled over by the cops as they might think you’re kidnapping me, having me blindfold like this,” I say.

“The windows are tinted, sweetheart.”

“Of course they are.”

I fold my arms over my chest at the sound of Jake’s soft laughter.

“Well, with the speed you drive at we’ll probably get pulled over for a ticket. Then what will you tell them?”

“That my fiancée is kinky and she gets her sexual kicks from me driving her around blindfold. Then, and only then, will she let me fuck her.”

“Jake!”

“That, or we’re into BDSM and you’re my submissive. And seeing you like this is how I get my kicks.” I feel his hand go to my leg, his rough fingertips gently stroking the skin just above my knee.

This is the first time in five days that he’s touched me intimately. My pulse jumps and my whole body responds.

“Do you realise how hard my dick is right now, just looking at you sitting there in those fuck hot boots, that short skirt … blindfolded.”

Holy fuck.

“And what do you plan on doing with it?” My voice has taken on a husky tone all of its own.

“Something which will mean you naked very soon, wearing only that scarf over your eyes and those come-fuck-me-now boots wrapped around my waist.”

'Wethering The Storm' Teaser ~ Jake....

I thought as it was title and cover release day, and I've been teasing you all for long enough that I would give you a little treat .... a snippet from Jake's POV! Enjoy....




“Say you love me.”


“I love you,” she breathes. And I feel it everywhere, almost like her pretty little hands are running all over me right now.


“Love you more.”


“Not possible.”


“No?” I smile “I’ll show you later just exactly how much I love you.”


A bang on the door behind me frightens the shit out of me, then Tom’s loud voice booms, “Come on motherfucker! Stop whispering sweet nothings to Tru and get your tardy ass out here and in the car, I’m fuckin’ dying for a drink!”


Shaking my head, laughing, I say, “Gotta go, baby, the boys are waiting. I’ll see you later.”


I hang up with Tru, and when I get to the car, Tom and Denny are in the back waiting.


Where to?” Dave asks, driving us for the night.


I look over my shoulder at Tom and Denny.


Déjà-fuckin’-vu!” Tom grins.


“No fuckin’ way man! I’m not going to a strip joint. If Tru finds out, she’ll kick my ass.”


Tom rolls his eyes. “Okay, Crazy Girls.”


“I said no strip joints.”


“It’s not a strip joint. It’s a respectable establishment.”


“It’s a bikini bar.”


“Exactly. Tits and ass all covered. Tru can’t get pissed about that.”




*Not the final version. Changes may occur.*

Times are a-changin'....


Things have been a little crazy for me since The Mighty Storm came out, in the best possible way of course! And I’ve been pulling myself in quite a few different directions, which has become exhausting to say the least! My original plan before TMS came out was to write and release Blood Lies, the third book in the Alexandra Jones series, then I would write and release the sequel to TMS. Things haven’t exactly gone to plan, I won’t bore you with the details, but suffice to say TMS has been consuming all of my time, in more ways than one, so I’ve found myself at a bit of a crossroads with what to do. I’ve also been listening to what you guys want … and after much deliberation I made a decision on what to do....
 
I’m switching release dates.
 
I’m moving Blood Lies to be released next year and bringing TMS2 forward for release in December, I’m giving a tentative release date of 21st December 2012!

I know this will be a disappointment for fans of the AJ series, all I can say is I want to give my all to Alex and Nathan, and with the way things stand at the moment Tru and Jake are literally consuming all of my time. The last thing I want to do is put out a second rate book just to make a promised date – I couldn’t do that to them, or you guys.

For TMS fans I know this will be happy news for you all that the release date has been significantly brought forward!

I love all my characters and want to write them the best I can, and I know with absolute certainty this is the right order to do the releases.

Thank you all so much for your support it in the months past and on-going, it means the absolute world to me … I  you all to the moon and back!

TMS2 Teaser #1


I know you've all been (im)patiently waiting for a sneak peek ;) So here it is! Enjoy....



When I wake Jake isn’t beside me.

It’s still dark out. Glancing at the clock, I see it’s 3am. Rubbing my eyes awake, I climb out of our bed, and go to look for him.

I find him out by the pool sitting on a lounger with his back to me, smoking a cigarette, dressed in only his jeans, his tattoos on full show.

“Hey,” I murmur, coming up behind him, I run my fingers into his thick hair.

Jake tilts his head back into my hand, so I press my fingers against his scalp, massaging him. After a moment, he leans to the side and stubs his cigarette out in the ashtray, then reaches up and takes hold of my hand and pulls me into his lap. He presses his face into the hollow of my neck, and gently kisses my skin.

“Are you okay?” I ask.

He lifts his head, staring into my eyes. “I’m fine.”

He’s not. I can tell.

“You’re not sleeping,” I say softly.

Jake pulls his eyes down into a long blink, his eyelashes rest heavy against his darkened skin. I trace my fingertips over his cheek, up across his brow.

He exhales softly and I feel his warm breath brush over my skin. “I’ve just got work stuff on my mind. Nothing for you to worry about.”

“But I do worry.” I run my fingertip over his lips.

“I know,” he says, and kisses my finger. “But you don’t need to … especially not about that.” He opens his eyes, staring straight into mine. His gaze firm and warning.

Okay. Message received loud and clear.

Leaving the conversation there, I say, “Come back to bed.”

“I’m not ready to sleep,” he replies, moving his fingers gently over my shoulder and under the strap of my nightgown.

My skin burns under his touch.

“Who said anything about sleeping,” I give him a deliberate look.

“Now that I am ready to do,” Jake murmurs, his lips easing into an easy grin. “I'm always ready. And, baby, you should know by now … we don’t need our bed to have sex, I’ll do you anywhere. You only have to ask.”

My stomach tumults, as I glance around at our dark surroundings. “I’m asking,” I reply biting down on my lip.

TMS and B&N....

I just wanted to put another post out about TMS’s availability on B&N, as many of you are asking when it will be available. Currently, it’s still awaiting distribution from Smashwords. I’m hoping for the end of this week at the very latest. It is available to buy on Smashwords in all formats. I know many of you have been on Smashwords and are unable to find TMS there … it will be because you have the ‘adult’ filter on. If you disable it, TMS will be visible for you; it’s situated in the right hand corner of the page.

I’m sorry for the delay as I know many of you are keen to read TMS. And I promise, the second it’s live on B&N you’ll be the first to know.

The Mighty Storm sequel? ....

 
 
Over the last few days I’ve been asked quite a few times if there will be a sequel to The Mighty Storm, the short answer to that is ... yes! Like TMS, the sequel will be mainly told from Tru’s POV ... but there will be some Jake ‘treats’ in there too ;)
 
Release date will be early Spring 2013

The Mighty Storm cover reveal...

So as most of you know I have a new book coming out in August 2012, The Mighty Storm, a contemporary romance, based in the world of rock music – a little different for me! So I now have the cover to show to you all … a huge thank you to Poppet for creating me another amazing book cover!
I adore this cover – hope you guys all love it as much as I do … so without further ado, here he is ... my Jake Wethers, bad boy of rock … The Mighty Storm …


Friday, 22 June 2012

The Mighty Storm ...


Here’s a little Friday treat for you all … a sneak peak from one of my upcoming releases, The Mighty Storm. It’s a little different for me – a contemporary romance, but I’m really excited about it!

Brief intro: Jake Wethers is the lead singer in one of the biggest rock bands in the world. Trudy Bennett is a music journalist. They grew up next door to one another, were best friends, until they were 14 years old, then Jake’s family moved to America. They lost contact and haven’t seen each other for twelve years…



“Holy shit!” Jake exclaims, his lips shaping into a heart-breaking smile. “When Stuart said the name of the interviewer was Trudy Bennett, I just thought – there can’t be that many Trudy Bennett’s here in the UK can there? – I mean there probably is but –” He laughs. Surprising to me, he sounds nervous. “But then I just thought it would be too much of a coincidence for it to be you, and shit … here you are.”

“Here I am.” Still echoing, sounding like some lame fucking parrot.

He comes over to me. Each stride he takes closer, my heart whams against my ribcage.

He stops in front of me, only inches away.

Holy crap, he’s so beautiful. And he’s so much taller now, but then he was fourteen the last time I saw him in the flesh. He looks even better than he does on TV.

Wow, he really has grown up.

He’s smells like of a mixture of cigarettes, aftershave, and mint. It’s a surprisingly alluring smell, and it’s doing all kinds of funny things to me.

“It’s been what – eleven years?” he says, his voice quieter now.

“Twelve.” I swallow.

“Twelve. Christ, yeah, right.” He runs his hand through his black hair. “You look different ... but the same – you know.” He shrugs.

“I know,” I smile. “You look different too.” I gesture to the tattoos on his arms.

He grins down at them, then back at me.

“But still the same.” I point my finger to the freckles on his nose.

He rubs his hand over his nose. “Yeah, no getting rid of them.”

“I always liked them.”

“Yeah, but you liked the Care Bears, Tru.”

I flush. I can’t believe he remembers that.

It’s crazy, that he, Jake Wethers, rock god extraordinaire, remembers that I liked the Care Bears when I was little.

“You remember that huh?” I murmur, cheeks flaming.

“I remember a lot.” He grins, devilishly. “Come on let’s sit down.” He grabs hold of my hand. Surprisingly, a jolt of electricity fires up my arm, searing into me.

Jake leads me over to the plush sofa and sits down, letting go of my hand. My hand instantly feels cold. I clutch hold of my bag and sit down beside him.

He turns his body toward me, resting his foot up onto his thigh. It’s only then I realise his feet are bare.

Seriously, what is it about men in jeans and bare feet which is so totally hot?

I take my bag off my shoulder and put it to the floor.

“Do you want something to drink?” he asks.

 I shift my legs toward him, turning my body slightly to face him. His eyes are already on my face.

I flush under his stare. “Water would be great, thanks.”

I could actually do with a neat vodka right now to calm my nerves; my hangover suddenly disappearing. But it’s 10am, and Jake is a recovering alcoholic.

“Water? You sure you don’t want orange juice or something?”

I shake my head. “Water’s fine.”

“Stuart!” Jakes yells, making me jump a little.

Stuart appears a few seconds later.

Was he stood by the door waiting or something? Actually it’s only now I realise I didn’t even see him leaving before. The guy’s pretty stealthy.

“Can you get Tru a glass or water and I’ll have an orange juice, please,” Jake says to him.

Stuart nods, smiling at me, then disappears off again.

I can see Jake’s leg jigging in my eye line. He seems a little on edge. I have the urge to reach over and put my hand on his leg settling him, but I don’t.

“So, this is a little crazy, huh?” he murmurs.

“Hmm. A little.” I press my lips together in a small smile.

Actually, I was thinking more – surreal, off the charts.

A silence falls between us.

Wow, twelve years apart and I’m just a barrel full of conversation aren’t I? It’s weird but I just can’t seem to find a thing to say to him.

“So how have you been?” he asks me.

“Good. Great. I’m music journalist now, obviously…” I trail off.

“You always were a good writer,” he says.

“I was?”

I didn’t even know he thought that.

“Yeah, those stories you used to make up when we were little, and then you used to make me sit and listen to you while you read them back to me.” He chuckles, eyes shining with the memory.

I feel my face go bright red. “Oh god,” I groan, embarrassed. “I was so lame.”

He laughs again, louder this time. “You were five, Tru. I think we can forgive the lame.” He drags his fingers through his hair. “And you always loved music so makes sense the two went together,” he adds.

My heart suddenly feels all warm and squishy. He remembers so much more than I thought he would.

“You still play the piano?” he asks.

“No. I stopped–”

I stopped playing after you left.

Original Sin - Chapter 1 (teaser)




Chapter 1

Six Months Later



“Nathan?”

“Hey.” His deep voice comes from behind me like a warm breeze in the cold darkness.

Coming up close, his fingers ever so lightly skim down my bare arms. He’s hardly touching me, but it feels electric, intense. He slides his hands into mine, entwining our fingers, and brings both our arms to wrap around my chest. Shivering with goose-bumps of absolute delight, I never want to let him go again.

Closing my eyes, I rest my head back against his shoulder and just breathe him in. I can smell him so clearly I can literally taste him on my tongue.

“I missed you,” I say.

The longing is so completely evident in my voice it’s almost palpable. I want him to know how hard it’s been without him. I’m never going to let him go again. Ever.

“I missed you too.” His voice comes in my ear, just a whisper; raspy, warm, doing inexplicable things to me. I’ve never felt as relieved and happy as I do now, here in his arms.

He brushes his lips over my neck. Heat burns under my skin. When I feel the hint of his tongue on me, I all but combust. Freeing a hand from mine, Nathan slides his hand down.

Inching up my vest with his fingers, he smoothes his palm across my stomach. I feel a shudder deep within. Then fingers moving downwards, he hooks a couple into the elastic of my knickers, tugging on them he turns me around to face him.

Looking up at him, I feel like I haven’t seen him in forever. He still looks as beautiful as I remember. His bright green eyes are smouldering down at me like there’s a fire burning behind them, lighting them to such extremities they’re almost glowing.

I run my hands up his firm chest, nails scratching over the fabric of his T-shirt. More than anything, I just need to feel him.

Nathan draws me closer to him by the fingers firmly hooked in the elastic of my knickers. He leans down and puts his mouth on mine.

I am melting into nothing.

His kiss is gentle, soft. He’s kissing me the exact same way he did the first time he kissed me in Dalby Forest and it’s making my legs so very weak, it’s taking all my strength just to keep vertical.

I wrap my arms around his neck. He runs his tongue between my lips, sucking my bottom lip into his mouth. Murmuring a warm delicious sound that vibrates through me, pulsing down … down. I can feel myself slipping further and further into him, and I love the feeling.

Beep ... beep ...

“Nathan?” Startled, breathless, I break our kiss.

“Time to go,” he whispers, releasing me, he steps back.

Panic seers through me, gripping me, covering all other feelings. “No, I’m not ready! You can’t go!” I reach for him, but he’s moved too far from my grasp and he’s slipping further and further away.

I want to run to him but my feet are fixed to the floor, like someone glued them there while I wasn’t looking.

I spin my head wildly, looking for something, anything to help me move. I can’t lose him. Not again. And then something catches my attention, coming from my right. A glow. Shimmering, sparkling, and it’s moving toward me.

      “Sol?” I gasp.

First Bitten - new cover

Hey y’all, I have decided to change the cover for ‘First Bitten’. A couple of reasons … I loved my original cover, but the cover came from a stock photo which means other authors have access to also use this picture for their cover. This one in particular has proven popular among many authors because it is such a striking picture. The problem I was facing was book confusion over the cover, often getting questions from readers about it. With ‘Original Sin’ coming out for release soon, it seemed like a good time to change ‘First Bitten’s’ cover. -Poppet Author has worked her magic again and has created me this stunning cover, utilising the original picture, but also making it line with the ‘Original Sin’ cover.

My publisher very kindly upload the new cover to Amazon late last night, so it is now up, but I’ve attached it below for you all to see :)

I adore it! I hope you all do too! <3

AN APOLOGY ...

AN APOLOGY ... to all you Nookers who have been patiently waiting for First Bitten … I know I said First Bitten would be available on Nook, April/May … but I’ve recently discovered that I’m tied into Amazon for longer than I realised. Sorry!! But by ways of apology to all you Nookers who have been waiting to get your copy, if you get in touch with me, either via this post or inbox me, I’ll send you a copy of First Bitten for Nook, for FREE!!

… and of course any reviews you could leave after reading on either Goodreads or Amazon would be massively appreciated! ;) Thanks! <3

Original Sin

Here's a little taster of my upcoming novel 'Original Sin' the next in the Alexandra Jones series, which will be released later this year. I hope you enjoy it ...


Nathan catches hold of my arm from behind as I’m racing past the barn, yanking me to an abrupt stop.

 Tears are streaming down my face. I don’t hide the fact. I want him to see how much that hurt. “Let me go!” I cry angrily.

 But he doesn’t let go. And the next thing I know his mouth is on mine, fast and hard, kissing me with an almost dependency. 

 I fight him for all of about a second.

 Nathan backs me into the barn until I’m up against the door of a truck parked in there. His hands are everywhere, mouths roaming, clothes being lifted, unbuttoned. I can barely keep up.

 Nathan pulls on the door handle. Locked. “Shit,” he utters breathless. His eyes scan the barn. “Wait a sec.”

 Untangling himself from me, leaving me wanting and breathless, he goes over to the tool bench and returns with a hammer. Shifting me aside, I watch wide eyed, as he smashes the driver’s window out, puts his arm in and unlocks the door.

 “What?” he asks innocently, desire still stoking his eyes.

 “Is this yours?”

 He shakes his head. “Craig’s.”

 “Are you crazy? He’s gonna go mad!”

 An almost smile. “I’m all kinds of crazy.” He drops the hammer to the floor with a clatter and moves closer. “But mostly, I’m just crazy about you.”

 Something in my stomach drops then coils lower.

 The little space there was left between us he eliminates and his mouth is on mine again. I wrap my arms around his neck.

 He reaches behind me and opens the door to the back seat. He lifts me in. I shuffle back as he climbs in, straddling me, he shuts the door with a clunk.

 And then it’s just us. Alone. In the back seat of a truck.
