Patty smiled when Shane leaned on her as she washed the dishes. His freshly dyed hair draped over her shoulder. “Do you need something?”
 
“Yeah… but not gonna ask you for that… yet.” His eyes closed as his body responded to their closeness. One foot moved back, then he decided he shouldn’t hide his desire for her.
 
She pressed against him and bit her lip when she felt a bulge in his shorts. What’s he like in bed? Should I make the first move? Does he like that sort of thing? Ugh! We’re taking this slow, remember? Maybe we should go out on a date.
 
“Patty?” She hadn’t responded to multiple questions. With an urge for more contact, Shane placed his hands on her hips. “How about we watch a porn on the couch?”
 
The plate in Patty’s hand slipped. “What?”
 
“That you hear, but not me asking if you’ve seen the new Star Wars movie?”
 
She blushed. “I’m sorry. My mind drifted for a while.”
 
“I know.” His lips touched her ear. “What were you thinking about? Me?”
 
“Yes.” Her entire body shivered. “Are you trying to seduce me?”
 
His eyes widened. “Uh… no.” He stepped back. “Sorry.”
 
She turned and winked. “It’s working.”
 
“Really?” He brushed her lips with his. “I guess we should continue then.”
 
 
“Another Rock Romance Winner!!
This is an amazing love story between Shane and Patty that keeps you on the edge of your seat and praying that these two can find their HEA especially considering their circumstance….” – Doris
 
Another 5+ star read in the Silverblade series set in the Triple Threat World of Rockstars. Shane and Patty’s story takes them on a journey of loss and grief, acceptance, lust and love. – Sarah
 
“It was so great to delve back into the Silverblade world. If you love series that bring characters in from other books Bella’s book are it. 
This story is about finding love again and rebirth” – Suzan
 
“Amazing. Bella has grown so much in her writing that with every new book you can feel like you are one with the characters.” – Traci

Bella Jeanisse lives for rock music. Addicted to concerts, Avenged Sevenfold, fictional rockers, and blasting music in the car, she can’t get enough. After her father turned her on to Queen, there was no going back. Of course, it didn’t stop there. Playing guitar became a pastime, which didn’t turn into a career… until she started to pen her fantasies and publish them.


 


Originally from Brooklyn, New York City, she grew up with access to clubs like L’Amour and CBGBs, hung out in Greenwich Village, as well as had plenty of friends in bands. No wonder rockers stayed on her mind. Bringing her ideas to life was a long time coming.


 

 

She is now living near Tampa, FL with 3 kids and 3 grandkids, as a single mom. Her family supports her writing even when it seems to take up more time than they feel is necessary. Can’t stop the muse, ya know!

 

Besides erotic rock star romances, Bella also writes about wild bikers, hot college men and more.

Crashers by Lindy S. Hudis

Title: Crashers
Author: Lindy S. Hudis
Genre: Crime Thriller
Release Date: September 9th, 2019
#Crashers
 

 

 

Enter the world of Crashers! A riveting story of love, desperation and greed. 
Fraudulent car accidents is a multi-million dollar racket, involving unscrupulous medical providers, personal injury attorneys, and the cooperating passengers involved in the elaborate network—and who also receive a portion of the illegal proceeds. Such is the fate of newly engaged, Nathan and Shari, whose joy is tempered by the dark cloud of mounting debt. 
 
A chance encounter with a sexy, mysterious stranger, in whom Shari confides her troubles proves fortuitous: he tells her of a get-rich-quick scheme that will put her and her fiancé on easy street. Seduced by the chance to move from hard times to good times in no time, Sheri takes the carrot offered her, and finds herself acting as a “stuffed passenger”—the “victim” in a staged auto accident. The act goes according to plan and Shari gets her payday, but getting out and breaking free of the insurance fraud underworld will take nothing short of a miracle. 
 
 

 

 

 
 

 

 
 
 
Chapter 1
 
 
For KXXX TV and KXXX AM Radio News, this is Katie Carlson with your mid-morning eye-in-the-sky traffic report, and it’s an easy one: It’s messed up EVERYWHERE! So far, the 405 South is backed up all the way to the 101. So, if you are going into Hollywood this morning, you are going to be late for that audition. Also, there is an injury crash on the Eastbound 10. So, if you are heading into downtown LA, you might want to bring a magazine or get some knitting done. If you are going to LAX, forget it, call mom back east and tell her you will be driving out instead. Just Kidding! Any way, this is Katie Carlson with the Los Angeles mid-morning traffic report. Enjoy your commute everybody, NOT!

As the blare of the clock radio on the night table jolted her awake, Shari Barnes rubbed her eyes, blew her long brown hair out of her face, and snuggled into Nathan Townsend’s chest. She curled her body around his middle and took a deep whiff of his salty, masculine neck.
 
 
But she couldn’t ignore the voice on the radio.
 
 
“Monday morning traffic,” she sighed.
 
 
Nathan matched the sigh and put his arms around her. “At least you don’t have to drive over the hill.”
 
 
“Yeah, I would just die if I had to drive into Beverly Hills every day to work in a beautiful office.” Shari giggled and disappeared under their thick blue comforter for a few more moments of sleepy-headed bliss. She felt Nathan stretch up, and a moment later the radio shut off. Then he slid down next to her in the single bed they shared in their Studio City apartment, a few blocks north of Ventura Boulevard. The constant drone and rumble of another L.A. morning came clearly through the open window: cars honking, rock music blaring, the frantic scurrying sounds of the film shoot a few blocks away. Shari ran her bare feet up the inside of Nathan’s thigh.
 
 
He jumped. “Shit, your feet are cold.” He pushed her legs off of him.
 
 
“What time is it?” she murmured between kisses.
 
 
“Um, seven.” He nuzzled her neck and she felt him becoming erect against her.
 
 
“No time for that!” She threw off the covers. “Gotta be at work on time for once; gotta get my asp out of bed.”
 
 
“There’s a snake in the bed?” Nathan grabbed her with both hands and gave her belly gentle nips.
 
 
“Yeah, of the one-eyed variety.” Shari leaped to the floor and padded naked into the bathroom. She turned the hot water in the shower to high and stepped in, filling the small bathroom with steam.
 
 
She had just poured a green drop of shampoo into her palm and was running her hands together when the flimsy yellow and white shower curtain flew back and Nathan grinned in at her. She smiled back, surprised by neither his arrival nor the partial hard-on that preceded him.
 
 
“Mind if we join you?” he asked.
 
 
“There’s enough shampoo for everybody,” Shari said as she rubbed her hands across her scalp.
 
 
He stepped into the stall, pulled the curtain closed and began to lather her hair for her. She put her hands on his back, feeling the taut muscles and the water streaming there, but did not reach down between them. It took him about five seconds to realize it and hold her away.
 
 
“You okay?”
 
 
“Fine….”
 
 
“Don’t lie; I can always tell when you have something on your mind.”
 
 
“You know me better than I know me,” she said.
 
 
“You know it.” He pushed her wet hair over her shoulders. “Come on, give.”
 
 
“I was thinking maybe I should get a second job.”
 
 
“You’re worrying about money again?”
 
 
“Well, I have to shoot my student thesis film this year or I won’t graduate. But where am I going to get the money I need?”
 
 
“How much do you need?”
 
 
“At least five figures.”

Abandoned by her father at a young age, beauty therapist, Patricia Owusu, has learned the hard way that men can’t be relied on.

However, when she finds herself pregnant after a torrid love affair with African-American financial consultant, Ty Webber, she discovers one man’s resolve to stick around.

“I don’t need taking care of, you know,” Patricia said when they stepped outside. Her voice came out low, a whisper, which nonetheless projected in the still warmth of the night.

 

 
After several seconds without a response from him, she turned sideways. He stared ahead, his profile stoic. Finally, she heard his deep intake of breath.
 
He looked at her, and thunder might as well have struck after the flash of…annoyance? Impatience? Incredulity?
 
“Are you always on the defensive?”
 
Aggravation. Despite the balmy, breezeless air, Patricia shivered. Perhaps she should have been scared, but she wasn’t. Somehow, Ty didn’t strike her as the kind of man whose patience wore thin as easily as wind blew away flakes of cotton. Yet, she also realized she’d pushed a button or two between yesterday and today.
 
She began to say something, but her response staggered as she realized she didn’t know how to answer his question. She sighed. “It’s always been just me and my mum. I guess I’m simply used to having to stick up for myself.”
 
His look softened. “Trish, I know you’re a strong woman. Hell, it’s one of the things I admire about you. But did it occur to you I only wanted some alone time with you?”
 
She couldn’t help it. She giggled. “You could have just said so.”
 
“In that case, how about this?”
 
He faced her fully, subjecting her to a powerful blast of his magnetism. Electricity jolted through her, and she realized he’d touched her; warmth infused her body where his hands bracketed her waist.
 
The next instant, she was plastered against him, her soft abdomen privy to the state of his desire. His heated breath wafted over her face, a mix of him and the whiskey he’d had at dinner. An avalanche of sensations, fierce and unrelenting hit her in the gut.
 
Then the worst thing happened. The most embarrassing moment of her life.
 
She threw up.
 
On him.
 
For several seconds, she could only stare in horror at her dinner, now a less than palatable concoction splattered on Ty’s clothes and shoes.
 
He still held her as she doubled over, one hand on her shoulder, the other rubbing her back.
 
“Trish, what’s going on?” He pushed back a few strands of her braids hanging loose from the confines of her up do.
 
“I am so sorry,” she said.
 
“We need to get you to a hospital.”
 
Crap! Her stomach lurched again, and she figured out what had triggered the emesis. Thankfully, what came out the second time was minimal. She took in a deep breath, exhaling through her mouth. It seemed to help.
 
Ty held up the bottle of water he’d taken with him from dinner. “Here—”
 
“Please stop talking,” she gasped, turning away from him. “I need a minute.”
 
“This could be food poisoning. You need a doctor.”
 
“I don’t, and it’s not food poisoning. It’s the alcohol.”
 
“You didn’t drink.”
 
“No, but you did.”
 
His features assumed a frown, his confusion absolute. “You’re sick because I drank?”
 
“I’m not sick. I’m—”
 
She stopped abruptly, tossing different possible explanations in her head, all of them partial truths. No matter what anyone said, keeping quiet and outright lying were not the same. She wasn’t prepared to do the latter, but she’d spoilt her chances of doing the former.
 
“I’m…uh.”
 
His eyes narrowed. “You’re what?”
 
“I’m…”
 
Shiiit.
 
She couldn’t believe she was going to tell him. “I’m pregnant, Ty.”

SYNOPSIS

Second chances…

Does one take it?

Avery Poindexter never expected to take another chance at love…actually,
she had planned on remaining invisible for the rest of her life.

Growing up in a family that would put Cinderella’s to shame, Avery
Poindexter watched as her sister withstood years of abuse while she was
sidelined to the staff quarters unable to fight for her own.

However, she had a plan…

On her eighteenth birthday, with the signed paperwork from her malicious
grandmother, Avery and her sister make their escape and never look back,
but Avery should have guessed that her change in luck was too good to be
true.

After unexpected deaths, Avery finds herself simply passing through
life….alone.

Banishing herself to a life of loneliness and solitude, Avery jumps at the
chance to start over somewhere new: Carson, North Carolina. As Avery
adjusts to a new beginning and a new life, she’s thrown a curve ball she
wasn’t expecting – him – a man that has his own secrets and demons shrouded
in the darkness of his past. He also happens to be one of her bosses and
Avery finds herself drawn to him in a way she never anticipated, torn
between wanting to wrap him in her arms and push him away in hopes to save
his life.

 

Logan doesn’t trust women. Period. They play on your emotional
vulnerability and use you if they can. They chew you up and spit you out.
He should know; his family has a long history of lying, cheating,
manipulating, and leaving women.

Growing up in a trailer park, kicking post to his dad’s vicious temper,
Logan made a vow to make something of himself. Determination and
scholarships got him through medical school; women got him through lonely
nights.

A one-night stand cut short exposes Logan to a mysterious woman that flips
his world upside down. Logan never expected to meet her; the one that would
make him question everything. Undeterred by her need to keep him at an
arm’s length, he goes against everything he believes in the quest to prove
that they’re worth fighting for.

 

Will Logan be able to breathe life back into Avery’s heart and offer her
the things she craves…family? Love? Or will their devastating pasts force
them apart?

Westmore Guest Post

westmore-front-cover

“A literary version of a soap opera.”

That’s how I describe Westmore whenever someone asks about the book.

Anyone who follows me online knows I’m a soap opera fanatic. I’m always posting my opinion about the latest happenings on my favorite shows. At times, the shows can be so bad that I often say I can do a better job of writing them.

That’s one of the things that lead to the inspiration of Westmore. I wondered what it’d be like to create my own version of a soap opera.

One day I grabbed a notebook and began writing ideas for a soap opera. I outlined the character descriptions along with the plot. I had about ten pages filled by the time I was finished.

When I decided to turn it into a book, I knew there was a gamble. Odds are people wouldn’t understand the premise or they’d get confused with the various characters.

But that was a chance I was willing to take. With the way the book industry is, I think you have to be different.

With Westmore, I’ve got a little bit of everything going with it. First, there’s the various characters. You have everyone from the millionaire CEO to a musician to a bartender. All these characters have a different background, yet throughout the story they become connected in some way. That’s one of the things that I believe is what makes the story. You read about these characters, become attached to them, and watch as their bond grows.

Aside from the characters you have the romance element, which is important in any soap opera. Then of course you have to have the drama. In Westmore, there’s heartache, family turmoil, and secrets from the past coming to light. All these elements combined together is what makes a great story.

Now, you won’t be seeing the usual outrageous stories you’ll see on the shows. For instance, I won’t have characters returning from the dead, baby switch stories, or a couple marrying for the twentieth time.

I prefer to keep my stories simple. Although, I don’t know how simple you can get with a soap opera book.
