♡ Book Tour ♡ Twisted Bond (Holly Woods Files #1) by Emma Hart @EmmaHartAuthor @InkSlingerPR

Twisted Bond
Holly Woods Files #1
Emma Hart

Release Date: June 11th 2015

✾ Synopsis ✾

I'm an Italian-Texan woman in a family full of cops. I'm passionate and shoot before I think. You only f*ck with me if you're stupid.

Photograph cheating spouses. Hand over the evidence. Cash my check.

That was my plan when I returned home to Holly Woods, Texas, and became a private investigator.

Finding the dead body in my dumpster? Yeah... Given the choice, I think I would have opted out of that little discovery, especially since all three of my brothers are cops. And my Italian grandmother is sure the reason I'm single is because of my job.

Of course, my connection to the victim is entirely coincidental. Until I'm hired by her husband to investigate her murder and shoved bang-smack into the path of Detective Drake Nash.

My nemesis, a persistent pain in my ass, and one hell of a sexy son of a bitch.

Shame he still holds a grudge from that time I shot him in the foot twelve years ago, or we could have something. In another life.

So now all I have to do is avoid my nonna's blind dates, try not to blackmail my brothers into giving me confidential police files, and absolutely do not point my gun at Drake Nash. Or kiss him. Or jump his bones.

All while I hunt down the killer.

Sounds totally simple — until a second body proves that sometimes things that start as coincidences don't always end up that way...

(Twisted Bond is book one of the Holly Woods Files series and while it does not end in a cliffhanger, it is not a standalone.)

"Watch your damn mouth, Noelle Bond," Drake says low, his tone full of threats and barely restrained anger. "My patience where you're concerned is just about at the breakin' point, and when it reaches it, you ain't gonna like me very much."

"So save yourself a job and cuff me. See what the hell happens when you do that."

He stands and turns to me, eclipsing me in height and width. "Are you threatenin' me, ma'am?"

I take another step toward him despite our size differences. "Fuck yeah, I'm threatenin' you, sir. Except my threats are closer to promises, so try it and see how well it ends for you."

The minute distance between our bodies is swallowed by his single step toward me. If I were to reach out just a little, my fingers would brush his inevitably toned stomach.

"You have five seconds to take it back before I make good on my threat, Noelle."

"You have five seconds to get your ass the hell out of my goddamned office before I break your kneecaps."

Within two seconds, Drake Nash's arms are around me and he has both of my wrists secured at the base of my back with one of his hands. The other is pressed between my shoulder blades, an open pair of handcuffs just close enough that I can feel the chill of the metal through the light material of my shirt. He's so close that I can feel every contour of his body pressing against mine, and the heat of his breath flowing across my skin sends my body temperature up several degrees.

"Do not tempt me," he whispers hoarsely in my ear. "Do yourself a favor and refund Ryan Perkins his money. Then get your ass out of this investigation. It's too fucking dangerous for you, Noelle. You have no idea what you're up against."

"Don't ever underestimate me. You may be able to restrain me without trying, but I sure as hell ain't afraid to fight your fine ass and pin you to the ground," I grind out. "I'm not the cops who work under you at the station. They might whimper when you so much as glare at them, but you can have those handcuffs at my back, Detective, and I'm still gonna be ready to twist your balls off and hand them to you."

✿ Excerpt ✿


"I'm going to take my time with you," I say, tossing her on the bed. The robe she put on loosens, exposing her full breasts, her nipples tight and long, waiting for my mouth. Closing my eyes, I try to slow my thoughts that are racing ahead of me. I'm not feeling refined, more like wild with a side of out-of-control. I want to lick and taste every part of her, eat her like a meal and then have a buffet for dessert. I want her in my mouth, wrapped around my dick, and I want to fuck her until she's screaming my name so loud it becomes a part of her.

I drop my pants and kneel on the mattress. On my hands and knees, I stalk my way over her until we're mouth to mouth.

"Eyes on mine," I say, to draw her gaze away from my cock that's bumping into her clit. The frantic sway of her gaze follows every line of my chest before taking hold. "We're not sleeping, Angel. I have five hours to show you my sweet side and then the wicked one, and if there's enough time, I'll let you make me come with your mouth."

I laugh at her rounded eyes and then gasp when she takes me by the balls.

"I've no desire to sleep, Cowboy. And let's be clear — when I want you in my mouth, I'll have you there."

I lick her lips and then bite them. Sweet baby Jesus, this girl has most definitely found her way into my future.

✾ Synopsis ✾

My name is Lizzie Connelly, and I have it all. The gorgeous apartment. The new job most women would rip out their own souls for — working for Margaret Emerson at Emerson & Taylor. I have one of those lives you've always dreamt about, the kind you only see on HBO. But, the thing is, that life is a lie. A façade.

It all started with one call. "Everything you know about your story — your father's story — is a lie. It's up to you to uncover everything." One call, and I turned my world upside down to dig my way into Margaret's life — the woman who I'd never laid eyes on until recently. My stepmother who took everything after my father died fourteen years ago.

The plan was simple — figure out what role she played in my father's death and expose her to the world.

But here's another thing: simplicity doesn't exist, and my plans are flawed from the beginning because I never anticipated Oliver. Sexy, too smart for his own goddamn good, and infuriating, he's the one person who could blow my plans to uncover Margaret. She's his mother, and in another life, that would have made him my stepbrother.

I want to pretend that none of that matters, that I can simply finish what I came to do without sparing him a second glance and another thought.

Like I said, though, there's no such thing as simplicity.

My real name is Gemma Emerson.

And this is my story.

But then Rhys, her new voice instructor, happens. He's gorgeous, insanely talented and a part of the dark past she’s trying to overcome.

✿ What's Next? ✿

Second Verse

The first glance into Emily Snow's next book...

Release Date: TBD

"Your sister is insane," I said, shooting a glance across the parking lot at Hazel, who returned the gesture with her trademark icy green glare. What the hell was her problem with me? Leaning back on the bench, I tilted my head to the side and narrowed my eyes to match her expression. "I swear, she makes Cersei look tame."

Emmett arched his brows and lowered his gaze. I tilted my face up, swallowing hard when our eyes met. "Who the hell is that?" he drawled, a smile teasing the corners of his full lips. "Well don't just sit there lookin' all sneaky, Kinsey, who is it?"

I wasn't looking sneaky. I was looking at him. At the tiny bump on the bridge of his nose. The shadow on his chin from not shaving this morning — he should never shave, ever. At his eyes. Green like his sister's, but so different they made it hard for me to breathe because his eyes were everything.

I was looking at him and that was just as bad as looking sneaky, because I wanted things with him I couldn't explain.

Sliding off the bench, I shoved my hands into the back pocket of my cutoffs and looked over my shoulder. I almost expected the bronze face under all that curly brown hair to go up in flames when I caught him staring at my ass, but he simply grinned. He wanted me to know he was watching me, wanting me, and the knot in the pit of my stomach tugged even tighter.

We're friends, I reminded myself. He's nineteen and won't give my ass another thought after the summer, and besides, his grandmother has done way too much to help me for me to screw myself over by getting involved with him.

But when he stood, pressing his tall, built body close to mine to whisper in my ear, "You gonna answer me, gorgeous?" and I breathed in his scent, it was hard to stick to my guns.


No wonder everyone said he was going to be a star.

One word. One softly whispered word, and I was starstruck.

I held my breath. Released. Repeated. "She's a... book character. Epic fantasy," I murmured at last. I took a step away from him and forced a laugh. "She's like the queen of all messed up siblings. If they ever bring her to the big screen, maybe your crazy sister can play her."

✿ Excerpt ✿

Pearce's POV

We ride the elevator to the top floor, which can only be accessed by a security code. The elevator opens right into my loft apartment, which takes up the entire top floor of the building.

"Is this your place?" Rachel asks.

"This is it."

She steps into the living room. "It's huge. Look at all this space."

"I'm a big guy. I need a lot of space."

She walks into the kitchen. "I like the open layout. I like how the kitchen and living room are all one big room."

The kitchen and living room make up the middle of the loft. Then off to one side, down the hall, there are two bedrooms, one of which I use as an office. On the other end of the loft, just off the kitchen, is the master bedroom. The bedroom door is placed so that I can see the elevator and living room from my bed. I had it built that way so that if someone’s in there, trying to rob me or attack me, I'll see them coming. I keep a gun in my nightstand just in case.

We're in the kitchen and I go over to the refrigerated glass case that holds an assortment of beverages. "Would you like something to drink?"

"Just water is fine."

"I have several kinds of water in here. You have to be more specific. Or just pick one."

She comes over and takes out a bottle of citrus flavored water. I grab a plain water for myself. I don't buy any of this. The cleaning staff stocks it for me.

We're both standing by the counter, holding our waters. I take a sip of mine and she drinks some of hers. Our eyes meet and I feel it again. The tension that's been hovering between us all night. Pure, raw sexual tension that's stronger than I've ever felt before.

I step closer to her, setting my water on the counter behind her. I take her water and set it next to mine. I shouldn't do this. Doing this will only move this relationship forward, taking it to a place I said I wouldn't go. But God, I want it. I want it so bad. I want her, and not just sexually. I want her in my life. I want this to go somewhere. Someplace real. For the first time in my life, I want a real relationship and I want it with her. Maybe it won't work out, but I at least want to try.

Our bodies are just inches apart, our eyes locked on each other, the sexual tension ready to burst. I don't know what the hell I'm waiting for.

I haul her into me, my other hand buried in her hair as I crash my lips to hers. I wanted our first time together to be slow and gentle, but we're way past that point. Slow and gentle will have to wait until later.

✤ "What's On Your List?" ✤

How are you using your time on this earth?

In the giant picture that we call life, many of us tend to forget what all of this is really about. We are so caught up with trying to find success and happiness, that we miss the things that are right there in front of us. We fail to do the things we«ve always wanted to do because they become daunting tasks that might involve some sort of pain, or even sponge too much of our time. But what if you found out today that you only had a certain amount of time left? What if you were able to look at your life's clock and see the remaining minutes tick by? Would that make you stop and think about the things you haven't done? Would it make you kick it into high gear and get to it? I choose not to wait until I hear the tick of the clock hands as they pass by each number. So much so, that this entire premise inspired a book. A book that took on a new life and morphed into so much more than I could've ever imagined. So I ask you... what's on your list?

I've had a bucket list for quite some time now. On it are items that some would say are completely out of reach for someone like me. What type of person am I? Well, I'm the person whose spine is partially made up of rods and screws. I'm the person who shouldn't be able to do much, but I refuse to cave to the fact that I am not the same as I was years ago. My body may be broken, but my spirit burns bright. For my character, London, in Saving London, the same holds true. She was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She was handed a death sentence and expected to go home and wait for the end to find her. But London is a lot like myself. She refuses to rot away and compares herself to a banana. Sitting on a counter and rotting away like a banana won't do. Embarking on an adventure for her last year is the only way she wants to live for the rest of her time. Would you do that? Would you sell off your worldly possessions to fund the adventures on your bucket list? Me? I most likely would. Like I said before, London and I have a lot in common. We also share some of the items on our lists. Funny how that happened. She was supposed to have her own list, but when you write a character, sometimes they turn out more like you than you expected. And I know the question burning in your mind right now, I can practically see it spinning so fast that smoke is barreling out of your ears. You can slow down that thought process because I'm going to put you out of your misery. Yes, I will tell you what my bucket list consists of. Not the entire thing, but some of the items.

The first thing on my list is to fly a plane. London and I have this one in common. Now, I'm not looking to get behind the wheel of an American Airlines Jet, we have enough issues with crazy pilots as it is. For me, a crop duster plane will do. I don’t want to do the whole takeoff and landing part either. I'd just like to hold the controls for a bit while I'm in the air. I want to feel like it's me keeping the bird in the air. Wouldn't that be amazing?

Secondly I wanted to visit what I consider one of the most beautiful places on this earth. A place where I could stand and just take in the environment around me and appreciate it for what it was. I was able to actually check this item off my list in 2010. My family and I visited a tiny island off the coast of Belize called Goff's Cay. Now, mind you, this miniature island was literally no bigger than a football field. White sand beaches, crystal blue waters and breathtaking scenery below the water. The amount of life bustling beneath the surface was a sight to behold. I can still remember standing on the edge of the sand, letting the clear water lap over my toes, thinking "this is it, this is my most beautiful place on this earth". When the realization hit me, it was difficult to hold my tears at bay. Checking this item off my list was a spiritual experience that I shall not soon forget.

Number three on my bucket list could be comical to some and confusing to others. Here goes... I wanted to make and decorate a three tiered cake. Yes, you heard me right, a cake. I still giggle when I think about it. I'm still not sure why I threw that on my list but there it was. Did I get to do it? Yes I did. It took hours of my time but by the end, I had a slightly lop-sided three tiered cake. But to me, it was beautiful. And hey, topsy-turvy cakes seem to be in style lately. Since I completed it several years ago, I consider myself a trendsetter.

London and I also have "climb a mountain" in common on our bucket lists. In Saving London, she gets to complete this one. And I've been able to do so as well. Traveling to Colorado I took on a chunk of rock that was a little over 12,000 feet above sea level. Talk about tiring. But I made it to the peak. I stood there looking down at the tiny town below me thinking "I feel so big, but yet so small". It was an eye opening experience. You stand at the bottom thinking there's no way you'll make it to the top but when you get there, you let out a sigh of relief. I learned a valuable lesson when I climbed. It's not about the view from the top. It's the view from the bottom because from the bottom, there's only one way to go. Up. I took a lot away from that experience that I hold with me to this day. And yes, when I found myself on the top of my mountain, I cried tears of joy. How could you not?

I think I'll round this out by telling you just one more thing on my bucket list. I don't want to share the entire thing that somehow doesn't seem right. But the 5th item is to dance with my son at his wedding. He's only 10 right now, and I truly hope I get to have him lead me around the dance floor on his big day. But as with everything, we will never know what the future holds.

Life doesn't offer guarantees. Its rules aren't written in black and white somewhere for us to find. I believe that we must live each day as if we may not wake tomorrow. Smile plenty, love with all your heart and take stock in the little things that life has to offer. Someday you'll look back and realize those small things were actually the big things.

Peace, Love and Pages
Taylor Dawn
