♡ Blog Tour ♡ Fall for Me (Ladder Company #1) by J.C. Emery @jc_emery @InkSlingerPR

Fall for Me
Ladder Company #1
J.C. Emery

Release Date: April 30, 2015

✾ Synopsis ✾

Melanie Kincaid is a trust-fund baby with a knack for sassy comebacks and unnecessarily complicating her privileged life. So, of course she would have to fall in love with a man she can't have.

Jameson Hayes is a NYC firefighter for Manhattan's oldest ladder company with big shoes to fill and a city to protect. He's strong, sexy, and not looking for the complications Melanie brings. But he can't stay away from her either. The attraction between them is immediate and the pull between them is crazy powerful. But she's only home for the summer and long-distance relationships never work.

Unfortunately, Melanie's beauty and smart mouth are a lethal combination and Jameson isn't the only Hayes who's interested. As if his brother isn't enough to compete with, now the city's most famous arsonist wants to claim her as his next prize. Jameson can't stand to watch Melanie get hurt and she can't seem to keep herself out of trouble.

Fall for Me is the first Ladder Company novel, a stand-alone companion series about New York's most elite firefighting family with hot alpha heroes, snarky heroines, and an arsonist hell-bent on destruction.

✿ Excerpt ✿

"Every time you think about me you touch your necklace." His eyes fall from mine to the gold wishbone that hangs from my neck and rests against the hollow at the base of my throat. I remove my hand from my necklace. I don't even realize I'm doing it half the time. I could lie, that I'm not thinking about him, but he wouldn't believe me.

"You hear my voice and you touch it," he says slowly with a soft smile that creeps up on his lips. "You see me walk by and you touch it."

"And we're friends," I say, reminding both of us of this fact.

"Kind of hard to be friends when one of us is refusing to participate," he says.

"This is stupid. We're attracted to each other, but we've chosen not to do something about it. I'm going back to New Orleans until graduation and you're stuck in a lease with Miss Cranky Pants. That's our lives and every time you start being all Mr. Gorgeous, you make it hard for me to remember that."

His shoulders shake as he laughs, looking carefree for the first time in over a week, and he breathes deeply as he calms himself. "Miss Cranky Pants, that's a good one."

I don't even have the decency to be embarrassed for letting my nickname for Lydia slip in front of him. It's bad enough I said it in front of Roy, his dad, who's now using it on an almost exclusive basis. Thankfully, Jameson doesn't call me on referring to him as Mr. Gorgeous.

"I want to be your friend but we need boundaries," I say. I don't really want friendship, but I'll take what I can get.

"List your demands and I'll list mine."

Christ, this man is ridiculous.

Endless Nights
Vegas Nights #2
Karen Erickson

Release Date: April 28th 2015

Genre: Erotic Romance

✾ Synopsis ✾

The sex is crazy good. Is it crazier to want something more?
Vegas Nights, Book 2

Andrea and her two best friends have shed their nurses scrubs for a long-awaited weekend in Las Vegas, and nothing — flight delays, lost luggage, or the slightly weird guy with the sketchy invite to an exclusive bash — is going to stop their fun.

Within minutes of arriving at the opulent party, she's deep in conversation with gorgeous, funny Luke Nelson, wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks. For some crazy reason, he can't seem to keep his eyes — or hands — off her.

Luke isn't looking for a hookup, he just wants to relax... until he gets one look at the classy brunette in the barely-there dress. One minute they're talking, the next they're all over each other in a dark corner. It's like he's an addict and she's the fix he's been searching for all his life.

One night of hot sex isn't nearly enough. But after a weekend spent never more than a few inches apart, the time is quickly approaching when they'll have to make a long-distance relationship work — or break it off.

✤ Fun Facts about Endless Nights

A book series is never born out of nothing. There are always influences that come into play as I put together a series, and the VEGAS NIGHTS series is no exception. So without further ado, let's discuss a few of those fun little facts.

• When I approached my editor about the VEGAS NIGHTS series, she asked that I have each heroine fall in love with an actor, a pro athlete and a rockstar (she was especially fond of the rockstar idea – and you'll meet Noah Wilde in WILD NIGHTS in July). I was certainly on board for that...

• The heroine from ENDLESS NIGHTS is named after a favorite blogger of mine (though she doesn't blog anymore, boo) who complained on Twitter a long time ago, I never see any heroines named Andrea! My name isn't heroine-worthy. Well, Andrea, now it is.

• I haven't told my husband that my hero Luke Nelson plays for the Seattle Seahawks because I'm afraid he might disown me. You see, my husband is a hardcore 49er fan and he, uh, hates the Seahawks. But I wanted to keep Luke on the west coast and I've already written a hero who plays for the 49ers and I don’t like the Raiders so... hello Seahawks.

• The hotel they're staying at in ENDLESS NIGHTS is based on the Bellagio. I did a signing in Vegas last fall and stayed at the Bellagio and wow, it's gorgeous. So I knew I had to base my fictional hotel on the Bellagio because yeah, why not? Though there are so many beautiful hotels in Vegas it's not hard to find some inspiration.

• The hotel in ENDLESS NIGHTS has no name. I did that on purpose.

• There's a scene in a lingerie store that was inspired by the Victoria's Secret catalog I received while writing ENDLESS NIGHTS. I thought, ooh that stuff is pretty, and decided to have Andrea try some of it on for Luke. He mightily approved.

• I love writing a pro athlete hero. I've written so many, it's like I can't escape them. I don't want to escape them! They are way too much fun. And sexy. And hot. And gorgeous. And... you get the picture.

I hope you check out ENDLESS NIGHTS. I think you'll enjoy Andrea and Luke's story...

✤ Karen's Favorite Quotes from Endless Nights

I always have a thing for funny, sexy quotes. Maybe some people don't think funny and sexy can mix, but I think they can. And hey sometimes, I'll admit it, I can crack myself up. Maybe I'm cracking up no one else but that's okay. At least I'm entertained right?

Anyway, I have a few favorite quotes from my latest release ENDLESS NIGHTS, second in my VEGAS NIGHTS series. I hope you enjoy them too!

Quote #1:

She exhaled slowly, tucking a stray hair behind her ear and trying to play it cool.
"Did you just smell me?"
Ha, I love this quote because Luke's stunned that he just caught Andrea smelling him after they first met. He's stunned but he's also intrigued. He likes this girl. A lot. He's thinking she likes him a lot too...

Quote #2:

Or how about, What exactly are you packing in them jeans? Because... holy hell, it's big.
Here's some more funny sexy for you. Andrea doesn't say this out loud — she thinks it. Just after she and Luke kiss hot and heavy and she feels what he's packing in them jeans.

Quote #3:

"Keep your hands on the glass," he commanded when she started to drop them, and she went still, pressing her palms against the giant window.
Oh, Luke tells Andrea this the first time they're together and it's sort of hot. Okay, it's really hot because he's bossy and telling her what to do and she loves it. Nothing wrong with a man who's a little bossy, right?

Quote #4:

He laughed. "Right, I keep notes of all the ways I can bring a woman to orgasm." He shook his head. "I don't think so."

"If you do, I want a copy, because those notes, I'm pretty sure they're worth something."
I don't think I need to explain why I chose this quote as a favorite. I've also decided I'm a pervert because pretty much every quote I'm picking has to do with sex. Oh well. I'm owning the pervert moniker with pride.

Quote #5:

"I'd like to wear you out some more, but I'm afraid you'll get mad that I kept you in bed the entire time you're here."
Andrea goes to visit Luke and of course, they spend a lot of time together alone. In Luke's bed. Naked. But she's never been to Seattle before and he's feeling bad that he's not giving her the tour so... yeah. Forget tours when you can get a sexy football player naked, right?

Wicked Weekend
Vegas Nights #0.5

Genre: Erotic Romance

✾ Synopsis ✾

What happens in Vegas…could be a fantasy come true.
Vegas Nights, Book 0.5

Between nursing school and starting their careers, Reagan, Andrea, and Natalie have had no time for dating. After saving up for a special vacation, they're on their way to Vegas for a long-awaited weekend of fun, sun, gambling and partying.

When their luggage goes missing, an impromptu shopping trip leads them to James, who makes them an unusual offer — to be part of the female scenery at his boss's upcoming party. Not just any scenery, but women who are pretty in a real way, not the nipped, tucked and dyed Hollywood version.

Accept a "private party" invitation from a complete stranger? These ladies weren't born yesterday. Yet before "no thanks" crosses their lips, Reagan discovers who James's boss really is: Declan Carter, an actor she's crushed on for, well, forever. Now she's determined to be the eye candy who catches Declan's eye. No matter what it takes...

Reckless Nights
Vegas Nights #1
Karen Erickson

Genre: Erotic Romance

✾ Synopsis ✾

Sometimes dream crushes do come true.
Vegas Nights, Book 1

Reagan can't believe her luck — and not in a good way. One minute she's hanging out with her friends at an exclusive party in Las Vegas. The next, she0s attracted the attention of a famous actor. Not just any actor. Declan Carter, the man on which she used to — okay, might still — have a fangirl crush. Whose blue eyes leave her embarrassingly tongue tied.

All Declan wants is to meet a nice, normal woman who won't use him as a stepping stone to fame. Something about Reagan tells him she could be that rare woman, and he follows his instinct to invite her back to his suite — where they proceed to have wild monkey sex. All. Night. Long.

What was supposed to be one night of no-regrets sex stretches out into a blissful weekend of two people who can't get enough of each other. But when the glamour of Sin City wears off, they're standing on the edge of a once-in-a-lifetime chance to turn a weekend fling into something lasting. Will they take the jump?
