COVER REVEAL ~ HARD TO HOLD ON TO ~ BY LAURA KAYE




ABOUT HARD TO HOLD ON TO:

Edward "Easy" Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves--which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight.  He may have just met her, but Jenna's the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago.

Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can't describe how he makes her feel--and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude.

As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.

And don’t miss the other Hard Ink books, now available:

A Note from Laura:

Hey guys! I am so excited about Easy’s book that I can hardly wait for August to get here! Easy’s character was a total surprise to me. When I initially plotted out the series, there were four surviving members of the Army Special Forces team and therefore I planned for and sold four book in the series. But then, when I sat down to write Hard As It Gets, all of a sudden the story demanded there were actually five guys, and Edward “Easy” Cantrell was born. And I’m so glad! Because Easy’s character is a totally tortured hero, which I adore writing! So I’m super happy that we added his story and this novella into the series, and I can’t wait for you to learn about Easy in Hard to Hold On To!

Is it August yet???

xo, Laura

Writing Fallenwood’s Sequel

By Leslie D. Soule

Hey there, everyone! Thanks for hosting me today! I’m here to talk about the inspiration for the sequel to my fantasy novel, Fallenwood. Book two, which has been released, is titled Forgetting Fallenwood, and follows the continuing journey of my main character, Ash Kensington, as she journeys back to the fantasy realm known as Fallenwood. I eventually found myself writing the last line of the story while sipping tea and eating Chambord chicken in a British pub in Ashland, Oregon, called The Black Sheep. In the stereotypical “enlightened writer” scene, it was pouring down rain, and a roaring fire had been lit in the hearth. But how did I end up there? Let’s rewind things to the beginning.
 
 

I’d finished writing Fallenwood with the original intention of leaving things as-is, no sequel, no series – nothing. It was designed to stand alone. It ends with Ash and the black unicorn on the field of battle, the peace of Fallenwood (and one would hope, Ash’s mind) having been secured. I thought I’d wrapped the story up in a little bow, and that a sequel might not even be possible. Yet I found myself coming back to Ash and her companions, in little ways that permeated my day-to-day existence. Writing has always been a great source of therapy for me, and even though I tried keeping my characters out of my journal writing, Greymalkin was always there in the back of my mind, his little cat body perched on my shoulders, whispering into my ear, “Isn’t there more of the story to tell? Surely you didn’t think we’d just LEAVE, did you?”

So I couldn’t get rid of this nagging feeling that I had to continue the tale – but how? I knew I’d have to start the sequel right from where the first one left off. So the crisis was averted. Then what? Well, I thought about what I might do, if placed in Ash’s position, and realized that, like her, I would have no clue as to how to proceed next. People always say that you should “write what you know” and so I began writing the next pieces of the Fallenwood tale more like journal entries, and over the course of several months, the story wrote itself. I did meet up with friends every once in a while for “writing sessions”, but rarely was any actual writing done there. These sessions were invaluable for tackling plot problems, however. It’s so much easier to talk to your friends about a plot problem and ways to solve it, than to run around inside your own head, often getting nowhere.

So check out Forgetting Fallenwood, my little sequel, and keep an eye out for book one’s re-release, later in the year!

REVIEWS ARE IN!


I'm so excited to share the first two reviews for book 1 Night Magic, in the Moonlight and Jasmine series. It's my latest novella released by Secret Cravings Publishing.







Night Magic ~ Blurb

The beautiful but lonely owner of a bath and body shop, Krista Winter is in need of legal counsel. Her past is about to catch up with her.  She was forced to flee from her life as a teacher in New Jersey after being shunned for being a witch.

Life is not the same for Jon Bartolo. He’s a dedicated lawyer, living in the town of Conway, New Hampshire. His days are spent helping his clients with their struggles and his nights are spent in agony, lost in a world between life and death.

His mother, who died three years ago, lurks in his house, suffering from a curse for eternity, without a resting place.

A smoldering fire between Jon and Krista ignites almost immediately, however, he’s sure his secret would frighten a woman away. An afternoon escape brings them closer, but doubts linger between the love-struck couple.

How will Jon’s mother find eternal rest so he can move on with his life? Is he bound to a life of hell on earth?

Will Krista fit into his world when he learns about her past?  Could she be hiding a bigger secret? Is it possible for them to open their hearts to love? Could a touch of Night Magic b just what this couple needs?

Review by Leslie Soule.

Rating: 5 stars Genre: Paranormal/Romance Pages: 58 Review: Krista is haunted by her past, and hounded by her ex-fiance', Andy. She works at her own store, selling skin-care products. She is a witch, but tries to keep this secret under wraps. Fearing for her safety, she goes to speak with a lawyer. She never expected the lawyer, Jon, to be breathtakingly attractive. She feels an instant connection with him and the feeling is mutual. But Jon has paranormal secrets of his own - namely that his mother lives in limbo, unable to cross over because of a curse put on through a feud with a witch, long ago. Jon is torn between his desire for a relationship and his duty to help his mother. This is a beautifully entertaining story, well-written, with likeable characters and a thoroughly enticing plot. I very much enjoyed reading it and watching the action build to its enchanting conclusion.

Review by Nicole Laverdure.

Beautiful chemistry 5 stars
If you need to change your mind and wish to read a brief and romantic story, then Kathleen Ann Gallagher’s new novella, NIGHT MAGIC, will be perfect for you! It’s refreshing, charming and cute! Do you believe in a Coup de Foudre? At love at first sight? Can there be a strong connection between two people when they first meet? Well that’s what happened to her heroine Krista, a beautiful but lonely owner of a small boutique Silk and Dreams and her hero Jon, a handsome and sexy lawyer. Krista left her home town to start a new life in the country of White Mountains, where she finds it peaceful and can hide her secret past. She soon needs a lawyer for advice, but when they met, sparks flared all over, there was an instant connection and a beautiful chemistry began! The moment he kissed her, all hell broke loose! You will also meet a mystery lady! I really loved reading her romantic story and I recommend it to everyone who has time to enjoy a short intermede!

MEET KRISTA AND JON FROM ~ NIGHT MAGIC



Tomorrow is release day for Night Magic, Book 1 in the Moonlight and Jasmine series. I hope you fall in love with the story like I did. It may be a novella, but it has all of the elements of love and desire.

I'm happy to introduce you to my hero and heroine.

PRE-ORDER HERE




Here's a peek at how I visualize Krista Winter and Jon Bartolo. 


Krista Winter is an ambitious, beautiful, yet lonely owner of a bath and body shop in the White Mountain Region of New Hampshire. She struggles to keep her past hidden deep in her soul. She never expected a meeting with a lawyer to open her eyes.





 
 Jon Bartolo is a lawyer living in the White Mountain Region of New Hampshire. He's strong, devoted, assertive and at the same time sensitive. His darkest secret lurks in his house, but his attraction to a client takes him by surprise and may be what he's needed all along.
