SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Beth Davenport has no interest in getting involved with another man for the foreseeable future. To say her last relationship ended in disaster would be a colossal understatement. The only reason she agrees to put in an appearance at Serpent’s Kiss, a private kink club in downtown St. Louis, is because her best friend, Nicole, won’t quit nagging her. When she walks in the door that night, the last thing she expects to do is meet a man who will have her reconsidering her ban on men.

As a captain with the St. Louis Fire Department, Drew Parker is used to being in charge. His crew relies on him to make sure they know what they’re doing and return home to their families after every shift. It isn’t, however, what he wants in a relationship. Drew decides to join Serpent’s Kiss to see if what appeals to him in fantasy is something he wants to explore in the real world. He’s also hoping that he’ll be lucky enough to meet a woman with whom he can explore his desires. The night Beth walks into the club, he is intrigued. Drew has to get to know her better.

After what happened to her, Beth is reluctant to get involved with Drew. It doesn’t matter that he is sweet and charming. She’s been burned before and Beth doesn’t think she can survive having her heart crushed again. Drew, however, won’t take no for an answer. He wants a relationship and is determined to chip away at her defenses until she relents. Will she give him a chance, or did her ex leave her with scars too deep to heal?

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

I need a wife. She needs money. It’s a gamble, but one month will solve both our problems.

Unimpressed with my billionaire playboy ways, my father has given me an ultimatum — settle down and get married before the investors’ meeting of Gaston Pharmaceuticals, or I’m out the door. Yeah… he’s a dick but he holds my future in his hands, so I need to play nice, for a while.

One problem is that the meeting is only a month from now. The second problem is that I’ve never dated a girl I liked well enough to spend an entire night with, let alone a month. So my best friend and I process my dilemma the best way we know how — by getting mind-blowingly drunk.

And just like that, I wake up in Vegas with an epic hangover… and a wife.

A beautiful wife. A fun wife. A caring and creative wife.

Now, all I have to do is convince her to stay married to me. I make her a promise. In four short weeks, we’ll quietly annul this farce and go our separate ways. I’ll get my life back. She’ll get hers plus some cash.

There’s just one little complication. I think I’m falling for her. As luck would have it, she hates my guts.

*** This is a Full-Length STANDALONE billionaire romance novel with an HEA and NO CLIFFHANGER. ***

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

“It’s time to start a new life after leaving my old one behind.”

When Grant Myers walks into a dimly-lit bar packed with strangers, he doesn’t expect to find a handsome musician crooning about love and lust. His previous relationships have been with women, but Noah’s appeal is undeniable, and Grant can’t resist—even though Noah’s a man. After spending eight years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, Grant is eager to put his past behind him, and his instant attraction to Noah promises a fresh start.

“His body is mine, but I’m craving something more. Is a comfortable, stable life too much to ask for?”

After years of sleazy bar gigs and a nomadic life, Noah Price yearns for stability. A chance encounter with a mysterious stranger provides a much-needed distraction from his lackluster music career. The normally silent and incredibly sexy Grant keeps his thoughts to himself—except when it comes to his intense attraction to Noah.

The two quickly become entangled in a passionate affair, but when Noah catches his big break, the media swarms him, desperate to exploit any tidbit about his personal life. They set their sights—and their cameras—on Grant, thrusting the dark secrets he kept hidden from Noah into the spotlight.

“My relationship with her was purely physical, but now she’s back, and she’s not going to stop until I give her what she wants.”

The unexpected arrival of Grant’s ex-girlfriend deals another blow to their budding relationship, and her threat of extortion backs them into a corner. With everything on the line, both men must decide if their relationship can sustain the constant scrutiny of others. Noah and Grant will have to determine if their love is worth fighting for, or if it was all a game of lust.

Writing Goals ~ September

Tags

, , , , ,

writing-goals-september

Goal #1

Write 1,000 words each day

Starting today, September 13th I’m writing 1,000 words each day for the rest of the month of September.

The word count goal is something that many starting writers set for themselves. I have done so myself in the past with Nanowrimo but I wanted a number that was lower and friendlier, if I can call it that, than the numbers I have used before.

500 words a day is a good goal but I know I can do 1,000 each day without stressing and I think that if I want to finish a story in the near future I better get to work.

What I expect to accomplish from this is to develop the habit of writing every single day. Also I want to make me understand that no matter the medium (paper, keyboard, smart phone) I can and have to accomplish my word count for the day.

One little detail: The#4 on this list won’t count as part of the daily 1,000 words goal.

Goal #2

Work on any idea I want to work on

The reason behind this particular goal is that I’ve tried in the past to stay focus on just one manuscript. I didn’t work before so now I’m implementing something new: write what you feel lie writing as long as you are writing some story.

In this case what I want to accomplish is to get rid of the feeling that I’m boxed into one single story from beginning to end. It has happened before and it’s not a happy feeling, also doesn’t help with me not getting stuck because of it.

When it comes to this goal it becomes tricky because I could just start new projects every other day, right? So where would it be the “complete a manuscript” goal that every writer has? That’s why I have the next goal in line.

Goal #3

Complete 25,000 words on one manuscript

Now, this is more like it, right?

Last month I try to bite more that I could chew… or so I learned. Thanks to that experience, now I’m trying to pace myself a little more besides, it’s not the time that matters, what matters is that I finish a manuscript this year.

I could pick the book I outline last month or I could pick another but I have to make sure I’m 25,000 words into a manuscript by the end of September. If my calculations are correct, this could mean the manuscript would be half done or even completely done. It all depends on how long the story turned out to be.

Goal #4

Write more blog posts every week

For a while now I have been posting on Mondays my book reviews. I want to give you new content and different things to read here, hence this goals.

If I can keep up with one blog post about writing every Wednesday, that would be amazing, in addition to my regular Monday Reviews that I love to do.

I hope the new content give you new things to learn and look forward when you come to my site. Oh, by the way, I’m working on making a website and I will be talking about that later on in another blog post.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Convertirse en regalo para un todopoderoso rey de otra dimensión, que creía que podía hacer con ella lo que le diera la gana, no era precisamente el cuento de princesas con el que Anabel había soñado desde niña. Claro que tampoco había esperado nunca encontrarse a un atractivo vampiro aguardándola impaciente en su cama.

En el momento en que una hermosa humana —más desvestida que vestida— le vomitó encima, Azrael supo que el regalo de Neva traía gato encerrado. Necesitaba descubrir por qué la bruja le había regalado una humana encantada que le hacía querer olvidarse de todo excepto de tenerla entre sus brazos. Completamente seguro de que con sus siglos de disciplina como rey, resistirse a una mujer encantada no iba a suponerle problemas, solo necesitaba seguirle el juego a ella y a Neva para descubrir dónde estaba la trampa que le habían puesto.

Fácil, ¿verdad?

Demasiado fácil, quizás.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

Becoming a gift to an all-powerful king of another dimension, who believed he could do with her whatever he wanted, was not exactly the story of princesses that Anabel had dreamed of as a child. Of course, she had never expected to meet an attractive vampire, waiting for her impatiently in his bed.

The moment a beautiful human -more undressed than clothed- threw up on him, Azrael knew that the gift of Neva had a cat in the bag. He needed to find out why the witch had given him an enchanted human that made him want to forget everything except holding her in his arms. Completely sure that with his centuries of discipline as King, resisting an enchanted woman was not going to pose problems, he just needed to follow the game and find out where Neva’s trap was.

Easy, right?

Too easy, perhaps.

SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS

All Zadie Cox has ever wanted was to find a mate, fall in love, and have lots of kids. The problem is … no one wants her. The pack doesn’t care for a woman with curves, and no man wants “a fat mate”, which is what they’ve called her.

Dante Locker hates pack politics. When he’s invited on a month long visit to a neighboring pack, he knows there’s a catch. The alpha has a daughter—but there’s no way Dante’s mating with her. Then the moment he enters the town square, the redhead with the killer curves grabs his attention. He wants her, and Dante’s a rich alpha, a businessman, and he always gets what he wants.

No man has ever wanted Zadie, but there’s something about this new alpha. The way he walks, talks … and his devotion calls not only to her wolf, but to her. Can Zadie leave the pack that she has called home? Will she fall in love with Dante? Or is this just a month-long fling?
