Diamonds and Dust
Lonesome Point, Texas #3
by
Jessie Evans

Release Date: November 25th, 2014




*** Synopsis ***


A sexy second chance romance from NYT and USA Today Bestselling author Jessie Evans

The home run neither of them expected...

Pike Sherman is a legend in Lonesome Point, a hometown boy who made it to the big leagues. Literally. Professional baseball acquired one hell of a pitching arm and its latest celebrity bad boy when the gifted Pike was drafted seven years ago. Pike's broken heart came along for the ride, too, but he kept that private, and since leaving Lonesome Point has kept his distance from his hometown. But when Pike's little sister, Mia, begs him to be the Dude of Honor at her wedding, he can't refuse. He takes advantage of a break in the season and returns home to find himself thrown together with the one woman he never wanted to see again.

Tulsi Hearst is on the verge of losing her Equine Therapy business, and letting down all the kids she's come to love. After a mix-up with the grant board, she needs to concentrate on finding more funding, not dealing with Pike Sherman, the boy she sacrificed so much for, and the one person she's ever lied to. And what a lie it is... Pike would hate her if he found out. She knows she should stay far away from the brooding man her summer love has become, but Tulsi can’t resist a slow dance with the only boy who ever made her blood rush.

After just a few days back in Lonesome Point, Pike can't imagine life without the girl he left behind, but when Tulsi's secret is revealed, his heart is broken all over again. The only thing worse than losing Tulsi, is losing six years with the daughter he didn't know he had.

*** Excerpt ***


"There's no point in trying to reason with a prick like that. You should have been out of there five minutes ago, the second things starting going south."

"I know... I just..." Tulsi swallowed as she forced her gaze from Pike's lips, knowing she'd never be able to form a sentence if she kept thinking about kissing him. Unfortunately, looking into his eyes only made things worse.

Their gazes connected and Tulsi's breath rushed out even as a fire whooshed to life inside her.

God, she wanted him. She wanted him as much as she had when she was eighteen and every nerve in her body ignited with desire when they touched.

*Blog Tour* Lady Catherine's Secret (Secrets and Seduction #2) by Sheridan Jeane + Excerpt + #Giveaway @SheridanJeane @IndieSagePromo




Lady Catherine's Secret
by
Sheridan Jeane

Publication Date: December 1, 2014

Also in this series: It Takes a Spy

Genres: Historical, Romance




*** Synopsis ***


London, 1853. Despite Lady Catherine's love of fencing, she needs to stop pretending to be a boy and fraternizing with men…but not until after the fencing tournament! Her mother plans to marry her off by the end of the season, so this will be her last chance to enjoy her freedom. When she impulsively puts her reputation at risk to save the life of a dashing competitor, all seems lost when he sees through her disguise, but he vows never to reveal her secret. Thank goodness for gentlemanly honor!

Daniel, Marquess of Huntley, wants to overcome the rumors of his father's madness so that he can be embraced by London society. His plan is to marry the most proper woman who will have him, and then raise stable, respectable children. He certainly isn't interested in some hoyden with a penchant for masquerading as a boy and flaunting society's rules. In fact, he'd prefer to keep his distance.

When an obsessed suitor discovers Catherine's secret and threatens blackmail, the only path out of social ruin is marriage. But what kind of protection does matrimony provide when a vengeful suitor is plotting the ultimate revenge?

*** Excerpt ***


"Ah, Catherine, I'm so glad you and your mother were able to join us this evening," said Lady Wilmot. "You look lovely. That color becomes you."

Judging by the number of compliments she'd gathered this evening, she should wear pink more often — or not, if she planned to avoid marriage as long as possible.

Lady Wilmot turned back to Lord Huntley. "You already met my daughter, the Lady Elizabeth Greville," she said, indicating her daughter with a slight tip of her head, "but I don't believe that you have been properly introduced to her dear friend." Her gaze shifted to Catherine. "Lord Huntley, I'd like to introduce you to the Lady Catherine Williams. Lady Catherine, this is Daniel Kennedy, the Marquess of Huntley. Lord Huntley, I believe that you may have been acquainted with Lady Catherine's late grandfather, the Earl of Kensington."

"Lady Catherine, it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. I can see a family resemblance. I think it's the eyes." He gently took her hand as she offered it to him, and then widened his eyes in surprise. "You have a firm grip for such a delicate-looking young lady." He slightly lifted his eyebrow again as he stared down into her eyes.

In a moment of déjà vu, she felt like a mouse under the gaze of a predator. This was all too reminiscent of their introduction last night. She could only hope he wasn’t experiencing the same feeling.

But what could she do?

Struck by inspiration, Catherine fluttered her eyes and let her posture melt, wanting him to see someone quite different from the brash, bold boy he'd met last night. She couldn't overdo it, of course. Not with Lady Wilmot and Elizabeth standing right next to her. But a stuttering, tongue-tied girl would be unlikely to arouse their suspicions.

"I, uh, I... needlepoint," she finally said in a flustered voice. It wasn't hard to add that little waver with those piercing blue eyes assessing her. "Perhaps that accounts for the strength of my grip. Do you enjoy needlepoint, Lord Huntley?" She gave a slight gasp of embarrassment, her fingertips flying to her lips. "I mean... that is, I meant to say, do you enjoy looking at needlepoint?"

His intense expression morphed first into one of confusion, only to be replaced by one of amusement as he recognized her state of "panic".

The Inspiration for Beautiful Burn


Beautiful Burn is actually a very personal story, one that's been in my head for a while but I was very hesitant to write. I'm glad I was finally able to write it — I learned so much about myself, love, life, marriage.

Without revealing too much, the book deals with forbidden romance... the student/teacher taboo, and the repercussions of that forbidden love.

I love student/teacher stories and coupled with my tendency to crush on my English professors, it was a natural progression! Much of Beautiful Burn is taken directly from my life in some form or another, I just won't say which parts ;)
