Moving Target

Guardian Security #1

The Review:

Desiree Holt is a must buy author for me and the start of this new series is the reason why. While I have yet to come across anything Ms. Holt has written that I dislike I admit her suspense stories are my favourite and this one is definitely tops. Do yourself a favour if you love romantic suspense stories full of heat and action, pick this one up!

*********

The Story:

Kate Griffin is born the day she hears her fiancé threatening to kill her so she takes off but not before gathering proof of his numerous misdeeds. But now she’s made herself a big target and she can’t trust anyone. That is until a man rescues her off the side of the highway and her heart believes in him. Can the find justice while staying alive long enough to explore the heat between them?

Silencing Memories

Guardian Security #2

The Review:

Holy heck but Desiree Holt has outdone herself with this suspenseful romance. I have to say this is by far my favourite story by this author and if I could give it higher than a five star rating I would.

The Story:

Lindsey has had some disruptions in her life but just when she is getting it and her business back in line she finds herself the victim of a stalker and there is nothing she can do about it so she hires a professional to help with the situation. As the boss Nick rarely does field work but this client intrigues him, he just needs to make sure he keeps her safe enough so they can explore their sizzling sexual attraction.

Comment for a chance to win a $10 GC

Mia Fleming’s precognitive visions about Carpenter Techtronics are so vivid, she resorts to sending anonymous emails to the company. She’s also having visions of a gorgeous man who arouses her to the point she’s satisfying herself just to get some relief. She’s shocked when the man shows up in her office, demanding to know what she knows about Carpenter.

Dan Romeo is just helping his friend track down the person threatening his company when he meets Mia. One look at her and he has a hard time thinking about anything but indulging in off-the-charts sex with the intriguing woman—until bodies begin falling. As Mia’s visions escalate, so does the explosive sex between her and Dan, as well as an unexpected emotional connection. When Mia is almost killed, Dan and his team must race to find the culprits before they can strike again—or put Mia down for good

Excerpt:

“Looking for something special?”

She hadn’t heard the man come in and his voice startled her so. When she looked up she jerked her hand so hard she knocked over her coffee. It spilled onto her desk and dripped onto her skirt.

It was him! The man from her visions. But who was he? And what was he doing in her office?

“I’m sorry.” His voice was deep and rich, like warm, thick honey. “I didn’t mean to startle you.”

Mia closed her eyes, counted to ten, then opened them again, hoping he’d have disappeared.

“Miss Fleming?” She opened her eyes. He was still there. “Here, let me help you with that.”

He grabbed a handful of tissues from the box on her desk and began mopping the liquid. Mia was frozen in place, unable to make herself move. How was this possible? How in the freakin’ hell was this possible?

He stopped, his hands full of soggy tissues. “Are you okay? You seem a little…out of it?”

Out of it? Mia thought that was one way of putting it.

“W-Who are you?” She couldn’t seem to stop looking at him. Was he real or another vision that had popped into her brain?

Like that man, he was well over six feet. Instead of the revealing boxers he wore a well-cut grey sports jacket and black slacks that looked as if they’d been custom-made for him. The lean body beneath the fabric was the same, though, what she could see of it, giving the impression it was all hard muscle. The same thick black hair now brushed the top of his black silk turtleneck. Dark eyes like onyx, fringed by thick lashes, were the centerpiece of a face with an olive complexion, high cheekbones and a classic nose.

And a hard look about his face that made a stone wall look soft.

Mia felt as if she’d been punched in the stomach. Sexuality radiated from the man, an invisible heat that made her mouth dry and her pulse speed up.

She dropped the files she’d been gathering out of the way, shock radiating through her. Had he really said that out loud or had she just imagined it? That damnable pulse at the core of her pussy was beating like a tom tom and her skin felt too hot and too tight.

She’d have to get to the ladies room and a sink full of water to repair the damage from the coffee. And cool down her blood. Luckily her computer sat on a side extension so the coffee didn’t get to it.

Taking a deep breath she forced herself to look at him. “I’m fine, sorry, you just startled me.”

When they’d cleaned up the debris and she’d tossed the tissues and wet papers in the trash, she sat back down at her desk, trying to compose herself. But when she looked at him again an arrow of heat pierced through her. His presence filled the room with an overwhelming sense of power that made the air vibrate.

Get real, Mia. You’re not the type of person who falls in lust with a total stranger like this. Especially this type of man.

Oh, no? her other self said. What about the vision? What about what happened yesterday?

She managed to pull herself together, trying to ignore the coffee stains on her grey skirt, checking to see that nothing had splashed on her tweed jacket, willing herself to keep it together.

Ha!.

Introducing the second book in the Seduced by Love series!

The Millionaire’s Temptation

Author: Sonya Weiss

Genre: Adult, Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: July 10, 2017

Publisher: Entangled Publishing

Tropes: Revenge, one night stand

 

Blurb:

Holly Campbell is trying to turn her life around. But, to protect her younger brother, she has one last job to complete. All she needs to do is use her unique skills to break into the safe on a yacht—millionaire Jake Lawson’s yacht—a man Holly had a one-night stand with before she knew his true identity.TMT FINAL COVER

Jake knows Holly can’t be trusted. He believes she used the one night stand as a decoy to steal from his company and he knows she’s up to something again. Jake’s determined to figure out what and stop her. He won’t let her take anything from him, least of all his heart.

Excerpt:

“You should have kissed me,” she said as they left the building.

Jake stopped in the middle of the sidewalk, forcing people to skirt around them. “What?”

“Now there’s all this pent up tension in both of us and sexual frustration can take years off your life. It’s a scientific fact. Humans give off pheromones and when there’s no release, it can lead to higher stress levels and ultimately a shorter life.”

He blinked. “You think we should kiss for medical reasons?”

Holly nodded. “I’m only trying to prolong your life.”

Jake laughed. “That is the worst pickup line I’ve ever heard.”

“Really?” She scrunched up her nose. “I thought it was pretty damn good.”

“Is any of it true?”

“Actually, yes.”

“In that case, let’s prolong together.” Jake took her hands and wrapped them around his waist. He’d never engaged in a public display of affection but then again, he’d never met a woman like Holly before, either. And it was just a kiss.

He gazed into her eyes and was struck as always by her beauty and her impish grin. Lowering his head, he brushed his lips against hers first, then kissed her deeply, drinking her in. The heat they’d created between them that night in the hotel flared right back up.

She tasted like the answer to all the nights afterward that he’d spent tossing and turning. She was captivity and freedom. Heaven and hell. Calmness and a storm. Drowning him under waves of desire.

When she nipped at his lower lip, Jake wanted nothing more than to rush back inside the building, find an office with a sturdy desk and satiate both of them until their legs wouldn’t hold them up. But the voice of reason intruded and he lifted his head.

“Not bad.”

“Not bad?” Jake arched his eyebrows. “I’ve been unfairly judged. I’m the best prolonger there is.”

Out today! Moving Target has had a long journey

Moving Target has had a long journey

The story about the story

 

Like so many of us, when I first started out to write I never dreamed how many rules and regulations there were just to create a book that people would buy and read. I actually started out to write what today I’d call a mystery with a hint of romance. Why not? In my house my mother and sister, avid readers, gorged on mysteries so I did, too. I even had a book plotted out chapter by chapter (the last time I did that for a long time!).

But after three months, when I only had three chapters written, I began to think I was doing something wrong. (No kidding right?).The I read Cry No More by the incredible Linda Howard, with its unforgettable hero, Diaz, and I thought This is what I was meant to write.

So I did my detailed outline, sat down at my computer, and wrote Run For Your Life in a week. Yes, in a week. 85K. Little did I know how awful it was. And so I began my journey to find a publisher, most of whom were visibly underwhelmed. Well, Run For Your Life has had quite a journey, published twice and each time with major revisions.

But today is release day for the update, jazzed up, revised book known, in its new life, as Moving Target, Book One in the new Guardian Security series.

I’ve written a lot of books since then, some I loved more than others, but this one will always have a special place in my heart. I hope you take it home and it will find a special place in yours.

Kathryn Holt knows only that she has to get far away as fast as she can. In a frantic, cross-country odyssey, she transforms from pliable Kathryn to feisty, determined Kate Miller, staying one step ahead of the killers on her trail. Then Fate delivers her into the hands of a dark knight with a tortured past. The safety he offers is as tempting as he is.

After having his perfect life ripped apart, recluse Quinn sees protecting Kate as his chance for redemption. He never plans on wanting the guarded beauty, never mind falling for her. Denying the explosive chemistry between them is useless, and as danger closes in he must fight to expose the killer or risk history from repeating itself.

Excerpt:

“You look as if you could use some help.” The disembodied voice was deep, rusty, as if it wasn’t used much, and she detected a hint of a drawl.

Then he was in front of her, materializing like smoke out of the blackness of the night. Kate took a deep breath. Her heart was banging against her ribs like a jackhammer and not just from fear. The unexpected visceral punch of his powerful male presence caught her totally off guard.

It was the fatigue. It had to be. She hadn’t felt sexual awareness in more months than she could count, but now? Now, when she was in the worst jam of her life, her body stood up and shouted hurrah for a stranger? She actually had to squeeze her thighs together to still the tingling in her belly, even as she wondered if this man meant her any harm.

I have truly lost my mind.

“Sorry I scared you.” His voice was deep and gravelly, the sound resonating through her. “I spotted you over here on the side of the highway and figured you had car trouble.”

“Y-Yes.” She cleared her throat. “Yes, I do.” As he came closer and the truck’s headlights shown on him, she got a better look.

Holy Mother!

When was the last time in the mess her life had become that a man had affected her this way? He was tall and lean, a black T-shirt and worn black jeans molding his body, outlining every muscle. The jeans brushed the tops of scuffed western boots. Thick dark hair, just a little bit long and so inky it barely reflected the headlights, accentuated a lean face full of sharp planes and angles. She had an almost uncontrollable need to reach up and run her fingers through it.

Dark stubble shadowed his jaw, and deep lines bracketed his mouth and the corners of his eyes. Not the face of someone who smiled often. His black eyes, looking out from beneath thick, dark lashes, were like coal that had been chipped from the earth.

Why wasn’t she running from him, scared to death? Why was she trying to imagine what he looked like without those clothes? She had truly lost her mind. What was wrong with her hormones, anyway?

“Let’s see what kind of problem we’ve got here.” He looked her over from head to toe with a critical eye, then started toward her car. Two steps, and he was right next to her, all that masculinity overpowering her and crowding her space. The faint scent of sandalwood and man tantalized her nostrils.

“I’m fine,” she said, backing up to the side of her car, desperately needing to put space between them. “Nothing I can’t handle.”

Right. Who am I kidding here?

“I’m pretty good with engines,” he said, as if she hadn’t even spoken. “Move over and I’ll take a look.”

When he put his hands on her arms to shift her out of the way she jerked as if he’d touched her with a match. Heat traveled through her, liquefying her muscles.
