PENELOPE

Sorry girls, this one´s in german

Heute hatte ich eine Sehr angenehme Überraschung im Briefkasten.

Penelope

Eine meiner Lieblingsautorinnen hat mir ein Exemplar einer neuen Zeitschrift zugeschickt in der Hoffnung mir eine kleine Freude damit zu machen.

Nein, das hat sie nicht- sie hat mir damit eine RIESIGE Freude gemacht.

Oft sind es die unverhofften Dinge die Dir ein Lächeln ins Gesicht zaubern. Und so war es hier auch.

 

emmmm

 

Liebe Annie Stone,

ich danke Dir von Herzen, dass Du an mich gedacht hast. Ich liebe Deine Bücher und habe sie alle gelesen, die meisten mehrmals. Ich finde mich in Deinen Büchern wieder und Deine Charaktere und ich, wir clicken einfach irgendwie.

Ich liebe es über Deine Bücher zu bloggen und da lesen meine größte und bloggen meine andere große Leidenschaft ist, ist es mir ein Vergnügen das zu tun.

Ich freue mich jedesmal sehr wenn ich die Möglichkeit habe Dich zu treffen und ein bisschen “brainpicking” zu machen.

 

Vielen Dank, dass Du an mich gedacht hast!

 

Herzlichst Konny

BLURB

On a dark, rainy night I drove my overstuffed junker car back to a town I never expected to see again.

And when I needed a rescue by the side of the road, a six-foot tall piece of hot, unfinished business named Mark was what the universe sent me.

Three years earlier I’d fled town (and Mark) to follow my wrongly-convicted father to his federal prison, working crappy jobs to stay afloat and visit him every second I could. But now Dad’s dead and I’m mysteriously offered the best job of my life at the college where his life blew up when he was accused of a crime he didn’t commit.

Someone wants me here. Desperately.

I’m hoping it’s Mark.

Because if it’s not, I’m in more danger than I ever imagined.

And if it is?

Mark may be the most dangerous choice of all.

EXCERPTS

#1

A flash of light from the corner of my eye catches my attention. I hear the screech of tires on gravel. I feel the shock of pain. My mind can’t grasp what’s happening. Mark’s arms wrap around me and pull me down, gravel digging into my bare elbow.

I feel wetness and pressure, then the shock of having the air whoosh out of my lungs. My back is flat against wet grass. His chest presses against mine. Mark’s hot breath is against my neck and ear as the rain hits us. The screech of tires fills my ears.

The sickening slide of a car’s headlights toward us catches my eye.

It all registers as Mark rolls our bodies three times down the edge of the ditch. His arms are wrapped around me tightly. A heartbeat jams against mine, my breasts tingling from surprise and fear.

And then the scrape of tires as the headlights shift away makes the danger go away.

Mark is panting, hard, on top of me. My own breath is held back by his wall of muscle. Every part of him pushes against every part of me. When I shift my hips I feel his arousal.

It makes me hot suddenly. My mouth is against his neck and I want to lick him. The rain pounds us both, making him slick. Making me feel more alive and raw than I have felt in three years.

Mark does that to me. Only Mark.

He pulls back, hat long gone, and the rain runs in rivulets down his bangs. It drips on my face and I smile, lost in his eyes.

Even in the dark I know he sees the real me.

And that’s the problem.

He never believed the real me.

With a hard push I separate our bodies, relief and regret pulsing through me. He stands quickly and brushes the sides of my arms as if taking inventory.

“You okay? That car almost hit you,” he says.

My head is pounding, but not from the impact with the ground. Too many feelings, too many missed chances beat through my body like a shockwave on an endless loop.

“I’m fine.” Those are the only words I can find. Too bad they’re not true.

#2

Life is divided into two parts now: Before and After.

As I literally peel my wet clothes off, my fingers touch my arms where Mark’s hands have just been. I close my eyes and imagine him standing before me. My t-shirt sticks to my breasts and I edge my fingers over the v-neck. The slide of wet cloth against my nipples reminds me of his mouth. We’d gone nice and slow, four years ago, when we started dating. His mouth only roamed from mine in the last intimate moment we’d had before he…

Before.

A long, slow sigh fills me. I forget to exhale. My jeans put up a battle in my undressing, catching at the ankles. I fall and grab the tub’s edge. My butt tumbles onto the thick little bathroom area rug. The color is a princess pink that reminds me of my old bedroom. When I was little, living with Dad and when my mother was still alive.

That’s like double Before.

Frustration fills me as the feel of Mark’s arms around me on the wet side of the road twists in my mind. My body is on fire now, even when it’s wet and cold.

He had to be the first person I saw, didn’t he? Why? I don’t believe in fate. I don’t believe in destiny. I don’t believe in soulmates.

Pain? That I can believe in. Betrayal and deception and lies are real, too.

Fate is just another lie.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Curse
Series: The Butterfly Effect #2
Author: Margaret McHeyzer
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: August 20, 2017

BLURB

It’s been the butterfly effect.
I changed the course of my life because I warned a man.
I thought what I had was a gift, but it’s quickly turning into my curse.
Now I realize I’m much more than a girl with an ability.
Because now… I’m becoming a weapon.

GOODREADS LINK: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34452896-the-curse

My Review:
The Curse by Margaret McHeyzer is the second installment in The Butterfly Effect Series and is not a standalone. You must read book one, The Gift, first.
The Curse picks up where The Gift ends up.
Jude is out of town and Lexi gets kidnapped once again. Her new kidnapper isn’t nice, not at all.
I loved The Gift, I loved the story and the characters. And with The Curse Margaret McHeyzer wrote a great next in the series. There is more of everything. More action, more danger, more violence and much more unexpected twists and turns.
It is hard to review this book, because it would be too easy to give it all away. Only this: the writing is brilliant, the story is great and I loved the characters.
I give 5 stars and say thank you, Margaret McHeyzer!

AUTHOR BIO

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER OF UGLY AND MISTRUST
**Write something worth reading**

I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.
Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best selling status on my YA/NA book – Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.

My last three books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.

My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’ woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.

I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.

Because I asked him for this.

Aaron don’t ever call me Fatbaby’ Sims is lucky to be alive. Or at least that is what everyone keeps telling him. He doesn’t feel lucky, though.

He’s scarred, has more than a little bit of a bad attitude, and there isn’t a single day that goes by that he doesn’t wish his wife would’ve just finished off the job.

After being denied his old position at the fire department, he leaves, and doesn’t look back. He heads straight to Alabama and into the semi-welcoming arms of The Dixie Wardens MC. There he becomes a part of a brotherhood that forces him to get back in the land of the living.

Imogen is a smart girl. A girl who doesn’t always make the best decisions.

Her heart is in the right place when she walks into that prison, but it doesn’t take long for her to realize that her heart shouldn’t have had any say so in the matter. Especially when one wrong move lands her in the arms of a scarred man that looks frightening enough to scare any sane woman away.

Immediately enthralled by the angry man, she tries to get closer to him. But the harder she tries to get to know him, the further he pushes her away.

The only thing Aaron wanted to do after his now ex-wife was sent to jail was escape. Escape the awful memories. The pity-filled eyes. The curious glances.

He does a damn fine job at ensuring he draws as little as attention as possible, but then that annoying woman with her startling blue eyes starts hammering away at his resolve. Makes him feel when he doesn’t want to feel.

Imogen comes into his life and carves out a place for herself, obliterating his defenses one heated kiss at a time.

It doesn’t take long, and he realizes he’s in deep. Too deep to ever want to come out.

Imogen will know what it’s like to be loved by a reject.

“New guy.”  Someone muttered behind me.

I turned only my head to find Stone, the president, staring at me with hard eyes.

“Yeah?” I asked him, dropping my bag on the floor and heading in his direction instead of out the door like I’d originally intended.

“You’re here because you have a special set of skills that we need.”  The leader of the band of misfits, Stone, drawled.

I nearly laughed.

“That sounds like a bad line out of a movie.” I muttered, wondering where he was going with this.

He tossed me a glare and then yelled.

“Truth!”  Stone yelled.  “Ghost! Get the fuck in here!”

Ghost and Truth walked in the door at the same time, both of them turning to the side to walk inside, and stared at Stone

“Ghost, hold Truth down so New Guy can give him the fuckin’ shot.” Stone grumbled.

Ghost tackled Truth and wrestled him to the desk, then sat on him while Stone leaned back and watched.

“No, motherfucker!” Truth yelled.  “I don’t want it!”

“It’s the fuckin’ flu shot, you dumb shit.  Not a fuckin’ tracking device. Take a fuckin’ chill pill.”  Stone grumbled, staring at the scuffle that was going down in front of him.

I picked up the syringe from the table, similar to the one I’d given everybody else’s flu shot with, and stabbed it in the meat of Truth’s arm.

Truth bellowed in rage, and I flipped the guard up on the syringe before tossing it into the trash can.

“Done?” I asked Stone.  “I have to get to work.”

Stone nodded.

“Yeah, thanks.” He nodded. “Have fun at the nut house.”

I grunted something unintelligible, causing him to laugh.

“Don’t sound so excited.” He laughed.

I flipped him off and walked out the door just as Ghost was letting Truth up

“Why you gotta be such a big motherfucker?”  Truth growled.  “If you’d been anyone else, I’d have gotten away.”

“Why do you think I called Ghost instead of anyone else?”  I heard Stone reply.

Exclusive Excerpt

When I woke up on my sixteenth birthday, I didn’t leap out of bed to go get my driver’s license. I wasn’t thinking about the appointment I had to buy my first car that afternoon—a car that I’d been saving for since the day I turned fifteen and was legally able to work. I didn’t give two shits about going to the mall, or opening presents, or eating a fucking piece of fucking cake. All I wanted for my birthday was to sleep through it, because whenever I was awake, so was my gnawing, soul-crushing pain. I could feel it chewing through the lining of my stomach, devouring my once bubbly personality, sucking the energy from my bones like marrow, swallowing my will to live. Being eaten alive hurt. Being awake hurt. Being asleep didn’t.

I reluctantly opened my eyes and glanced over at the nightstand. The red numbers on the clock announced that I’d slept past noon again. The blueberry muffin sitting next to it with a candle shoved haphazardly in the top told me that my mom must have come in and tried to wake me up. My wide-open blinds—which were letting in an obscene amount of summer sun—let me know that she’d tried more than once. And that little white pill and glass of water on my nightstand? Well those only pissed me off.

I sat up and squinted at the assorted bullshit on the table until I spotted my pack of Camel Lights. Swinging my spindly legs over the edge of the mattress, I reached past the food and water, opting for poison instead. I lit a cigarette and waited for that comforting, calming first inhalation to do its thing, but even smoking had become joyless. Just like everything else, I was going through the motions.

Hand to mouth.

Inhale.

Exhale.

Repeat.

I ashed my cigarette in an empty Altoids tin on the nightstand and stared at the pill my mother had left for me—the tiny white hope that had turned out to be just another disappointment. I picked it up and inspected it. If it hadn’t had the word PROZAC stamped on the side of it I would have assumed they’d just been giving me Tic Tacs.

That shit did nothing. Nothing but mute the vibrant colors of my world to a dirty, dull gray. Instead of my feelings being a violent riot of bitter, angry crimsons, churning, crashing ceruleans, and blinking, cautionary yellows, my inner world was now as gray as the cloud of smoke that hung four feet above the floor and three feet below the ceiling in my bedroom. As gray as my skin, where it draped between my ribs and puddled in the hollows of my cheeks and eye sockets.

As gray as the fading knight tattoo on the inside of my wedding ring finger.

I threw the glorified breath mint across the room and listened to the plink, plink, plink sound it made as it bounced off the wall, onto my “desk”—which was just two filing cabinets and an old door that my mom had scrounged up at Goodwill and spray painted black—and landed in a heap of shiny army-green nylon on the floor.

My chest felt as if someone had come up behind me and yanked the laces on an invisible corset. Tears stabbed at the corners of my eyes as images began flashing, unbidden, behind them. Images of a skinhead standing behind me at my locker, sliding an army-green flight jacket up my arms and over my shoulders to warm my perma-chilled skin. Images of his smile when he turned me around to admire the fit. I’d never seen him smile before. Not like that. Making him do it again soon became my reason for getting out of bed every morning.

Now what reason did I have? Knight was gone. All I had left was his stupid fucking jacket.

EXCERPT I sit outside on a bench, looking at the scuffs on the tips of my black leather shoes. The bottoms are worn from wearing them while riding my bike. It was the only sign that set me apart from the other rich kids where I grew up. Other than Cruise, no one rode motorcycles or had dealt with anything worse than getting a warning after getting busted for smoking, skipping school, sneaking out, smoking weed, getting drunk, or driving over the speed limit. The list could go on.
I have a car. I just don’t drive it much, preferring the freedom I feel on my bike. It wasn’t just my clothes or the bike that set me a part. None of them had lived, breathed, existed simply because their soul mate did. Not even now.
From the moment I saw her, I knew Sara Jane was it for me, an angel in a Catholic school uniform, eating a candy bar. She couldn’t have been more innocent. Except she was. The girl had barely been kissed. It’s like she had been waiting to meet me, as if she had saved herself for me. How a girl who looked that good and smelled even sweeter remained untouched for so long was beyond me.
I would have loved her no matter what. She could have been a prostitute, and I would have only seen her halo. I was a ship navigating a stormy sea, but she called me to her lighthouse, a beacon shining in the dark. It was never about her innocence, or the sins I had inherited. The day I met Sara Jane was about two lives that weren’t meant for only one lifetime, but destined to be together forever.
Maybe that’s what had given me the confidence to break away from the kids I grew up with. I knew I was meant for something bigger than a life of partying and getting high socially.
I was meant for Sara Jane, and she for me.

Havoc by Laramie Briscoe

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Havoc
Series: Moonshine Task Force #3
Author: Laramie Briscoe
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 18, 2017

BLURB

When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime…

Holden “Havoc” Thompson

My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.

The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again – let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness.

I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection.

Leighton Strather

My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined.

My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get.

It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that’s what I tell myself.

I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust, hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away.

My Review:
 When a marriage of convenience turns into the passion of a lifetime…..
Havoc by Laramie Briscoe is the third installment in the Moonshine Task Force Series. Every book can easily be read as a standalone, but I recommend to read the books in order. The other books in the series are Renegade and Tank.
Havoc picks up where Tank ends.Tank was severely injured by a member of the Strather family. Leighton Strather is the daughter of the Moonshine Task Force´s enemy number one. She´s in danger and to protect her, the by 16 years older Holden Thompson- Havoc- marries her. Leighton is torn between loyality to her old family and her new husband and her friends fromthe Moonshine Task Force.
I love the series so much, and Havoc is no exception. Laramie Briscoe did it again. She wrote a great book with brilliant characters and a great story.
Tank is my favorite read in the series with Havoc a close second. I recommend the book and give 5 breathless stars. Thank you Laramie Briscoe!

Balance Check is live

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Balance Check
A #MyNewLife Novel
Author: M.E. Carter
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 18, 2017

BLURB

Life has a funny way of throwing you off balance.

Take me for example. I spent years in a bad marriage with a self-serving ass, only to have the love of my life show up when I least expected him. Greg helped me on my journey of self discovery and taught me that, no, I’m not perfect. But I’m perfectly me.  It was an amazing journey.

We laughed hard. We loved even harder.

And then he was suddenly and cruelly ripped away from me by the unclenching jaws of fate.

Ok, so it wasn’t that dramatic. And I really need to stop watching the Investigation Channel.

But now Greg is back and as it turns out, re-incorporating someone into your life isn’t that easy. Between jobs, kids, and barely-there friendships, life and love can be messy. Making it all work is a balancing act.

But we’re determined to get it in check.

My Review:
Balance Check by M.E. Carter is the next great installment in the #MyNewLife Series.
Elena and Greg’s story continues.
Greg was forced to leave his life and love behind and move away.
Elena is heartbroken but understands his reasons. There is no other way it seems. Slowly she puts herself back together. She’s stronger and with more self-esteem than ever.
But suddenly he’s back and wants her in his life again. But that’s not as easy as it seems.
I mean, come on, she was Left Behind !! hence the reasons, she was left behind. And what happens if Greg decides he has to leave again?
M y heart was bleeding for the characters. I could understand Greg’s reasons, and I could understand Elena’s hesitation. Both have flaws and that makes the characters so lovable. They are not the perfect bookboy/girl friend. No they have doubts, flaws and a every day life they have to live. And that makes them so lovable. They’re honest and real. And that I love about them.
I can’t say how much I love the writing, ME Carter gets me everytime I read one of her books. She gets me. I lough, I cry and I suffer with the characters. I love her writing, so much. I love the story and I love the words. And mostly I love her characters.
I highly recommend this great read and wish I could give more than 5 stars. Thank you so much, ME Carter, you rock !!
 
AUTHOR BIOMother, reader, storytellerME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.
