Veiled Target Sneak Peek + Giveaway!

2 comments

Categories: Books, Giveaway

I can’t believe the release of Veiled Target is only 10 days away now! I’m so excited for readers to meet Hugh and Tess! I’ve posted this pic of Hugh before, but I think it bears a repeat posting…

Hot guy in ocean-Hugh

Okay, now that you’ve got a nice visual going, here’s a little sneak peek from Hugh…

Did the damn woman know what she did to him? Her pouty lips and keen eyes with long lashes suggested she did. Women didn’t play fair. “We decided to split up so I could get you back to your car.”

“I don’t need an escort.” She marched past him, shoulders back, head held high.

“Right. So you can sneak around some more. I don’t think so.” He caught up to her. She didn’t fool him. Not for a minute. “I’m taking you back to the bar and you’re going to get into your car and drive home.”

“Excuse me, but—”

“I give the orders,” he interrupted, a smile tugging at his lips.

“You sure as hell—”

“—can give them to you, so be a good girl and let’s get you on your way.”

Out of the corner of his eye, he noticed her clench her fists and take a deep breath. She probably thought about hitting him. With his stronger than normal senses, he heard her heart rate speed up, smelled the salty scent of perspiration on her skin. Then she bit her bottom lip in a most distracting manner before speaking again.

“I’ll get myself where I want to go, thank you very much. You don’t get any say.”

“Tonight I do.”

“Tonight you don’t.”

“Do you argue with everyone trying to do a good deed?”

“You’re not doing a good deed. You’re annoying me.” She turned a corner heading in the wrong direction.

“Wrong way, oh wise one.” He snatched her arm to steer her the right way.

She yanked her arm back, but switched her stride. “I knew that.”

“Of course you did.” He glanced at his watch. Time ticked away. Time he should be using to hunt for Trey. He needed to ditch the exasperatingly attractive woman in the blue dress pronto. No matter how much the thought disappointed him.

“I’ll tell you what,” Tess started, “you fill me in on the Night Runners, and I promise I’ll go peacefully.” Her steps slowed. She dragged her feet as if they suddenly weighed eighty pounds each.

“Peaceful or not, I can get you to your car without saying another word.” He would not give her the upper hand.

“Yes, but that won’t stop me from yelling a few choice expletives on our way. I might rouse the neighborhood.” She tossed him a smug look. “And I’ve got news for you—when I’m mad my voice and language can be pretty alarming. I don’t think you want that kind of attention.”

Damn, she was good. Her combative nature and challenge to his authority had him wondering what she’d be like in bed. Bloody hell. Why was he letting his mind wonder there? “Two questions.”

“I beg your pardon?”

“You can ask me two questions that I’ll answer honestly. And then you’ve got to go.”

As an eliminator, it’s Tess’s job to ensure non humans meet a swift demise, otherwise it’s her head. But when she’s drawn to her next target, and discovers he has information about her fiancé’s murder, her assignment is compromised.

 Hugh might be Tess’s next target, but he’s got other ideas. When they’re forced to fight side by side for their lives, he forms an alliance with the captivating beauty. An alliance with explosive consequences as Tess discovers the man who can solve the mystery of her fiancé’s murder is the man she’s supposed to kill.

One month until Veiled Target + Giveaways!

Categories: Books, Giveaway

I can’t believe that the release of my first paranormal romance, Veiled Target, is only a month away! I’m so excited for readers to meet Hugh and Tess and share their journey to happily ever after. It’s a tough journey! I mean Tess is supposed to kill Hugh. I had such a great time writing a kick-ass heroine. And Hugh? ~sigh~ I really had fun writing the total alpha male. A warrior, leader, the man every woman wants and the guy always in control. Well, until he meets a certain eliminator.

So to celebrate my upcoming release, I thought I’d share a little snippet every week for the next four weeks. AND, I’m going to do a weekly giveaway for those of you that preorder the book. Leave me a comment with proof of your purchase and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a $5.00 Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card. Every Monday I’ll post a winner’s name in the comments. Your comment is good for the whole four weeks, so if you don’t win the first week, you might win the next time!

You can help make my day and preorder the book here:  AMAZON   BARNES & NOBLE    KOBO

VTquote1And if you’re on Goodreads, I hope you’ll add it to your list and cast your vote, too! Veiled Target is on a bunch of lists HERE and if you’d like to help move it up in the rankings, that would be awesome. I totally squeed when I saw I was on the same list as one of my all time favorite authors, Jim Butcher. I mean, holy crap! Jim Butcher.

I’m so happy to give a shout out to my pal, Stephanie Monahan and her latest release, THE MEAN GIRL APOLOGIES. I’m currently sneaking in some reading when I’m not writing or at the day job, and I’m loving Natalie and Jack!

I adore the cover and here’s more info about the book…

TMGA cover

Sometimes the song on the radio really is about you.

You know that catchy song you keep hearing on the radio?

It’s about you.

Natalie Jamison has spent five years trying to forget the girl she was in high school: popular, pretty…and, okay, mean. Now in her twenties and living once again in her small town, she’s right back where she was: following Queen Bee Amber and keeping secrets from her best friend, Sarah.

Secrets like Jack Moreland.

Everyone knows Jack Moreland—his new album, Good Enough, is everywhere. He’s famous. Impossibly handsome. Completely untouchable. But what none of Natalie’s old clique knows is that in high school, Natalie and Jack fell in love. And their secret relationship was incredible, painful—and earth-shattering enough to inspire an entire album.

Facing friends and enemies isn’t easy, but Natalie will go to great lengths to prove she is good enough—to her friends, to herself, and most of all, to the small-town boy turned worldwide heartthrob she never forgot.

You can grab this new adult novel here:

Amazon     Barnes & Noble

And add it to your Goodreads shelf HERE.

I’d love to know what you’re reading! Leave me a comment, ‘k? Because my TBR pile isn’t big enough. hee hee Have an awesome rest of the week!

I’m super honored to be included in a wonderful fundraiser taking place in the coming weeks, and I’m super delighted to turn my blog over to Heather for all the details…

banner2-2

Hi everyone! My name is Heather and I am one half of the duo that makes up the blog, Turning Pages. Before I get started, I really want to thank Robin for allowing me to spread the word about Books for a Cause here on her blog!

A few weeks ago, I was talking to a few fellow bloggers on twitter about starting up some type of fundraiser, involving reading/books, to raise funds for cancer research. I recently lost my Aunt after a long battle with Cancer - read my full story on her blog - and I am is very passionate about raising money and spreading the word for this great cause.

After contacting Stand Up 2 Cancer, they have offered their help and support. Additionally, a fundraising page as well. 100% of the proceeds raised during this fundraiser will be donated to their foundation, directly.

In addition to monetary donations, I am organizing an auction all bookish things related (mid-late July time frame) But I NEED your help too! Spread the world, donate books/swag or anything else to auction off. Your ideas too, would be great!

Of course, I am not doing this alone. Tonya at Lily Bloom Books is graciously helping me with all the “behind the scenes action” as well helping me get organized for the upcoming auction to help support Books for a Cause.

I am so excited to launch the auction and am so thankful for all of the authors and bloggers who have already contributed items! Please stay tuned and continue to help spread the word about Books for a Cause!

You can contact me directly at hsheffield2011 at gmail dot com or Tonya at lilybloombooks (at) hotmail (dot) com if you are able to donate items to the auction. You can also donate directly on the fundraising page by going to the website. In addition, you can contact one of us with ideas for other ways make this fundraiser a success.

A hashtag has been created - #BooksForACause to help spread the word. Please tweet, share on Facebook and/or on your blog sidebar (using image above).

The goal is raise $2,000. Help us get there and Stand Up 2 Cancer!

Sincerely,

Heather

Hey there! Happy June! Let’s kick off the month right shall we? I’m so happy to share that my awesome publisher, Entangled Publishing, is offering a very special Steal & Deal! (Well, special to me.) For one week only my debut book, WORTH THE RISK, is FREE! And for a limited time the second book in my Take A Risk series, RISKY SURRENDER, is only .99 cents!

Robin Sale Button2

WORTH THE RISK is about Sam and Dean (not the Supernatural duo). They spent a summer together after college and now five years later, they’re face to face again vying for the same job.

Their love was ancient history…until their paths crossed again

Samantha Bennett put Dean Malloy out of her mind five years ago, when he broke her heart after a summer fling. But now he’s back in her life, and ready to steal a heritage protection contract that could make or break her career–if he doesn’t steal her heart first. Samantha’s vowed to hate him, but it’s more than anger heating the competition between them.

With sparks flying across the conference table and sizzling in every touch, Dean proposes a weekend liaison. Anything to have Sam again; anything to get her out of his system. But the unresolved feelings between them complicate both their personal and professional lives, and one wild weekend could turn into a disaster that would destroy the one job that means more to Samantha than anything. For a shot at love…is it worth the risk?

This book has a really special place in my heart because it was my first one. When I sat down to write it I got to thinking about what my favorite part of any story was and I realized it’s the first kiss. That magical moment when two people can’t keep their hands – or rather mouths – off each other. <sigh>

So, since Sam and Dean’s first kiss takes place five years before the novel opens, I wanted their First Kiss after they meet up again to be really Something. It takes place in a bar and involves a hot sauce game. Here’s a peek…

He cupped her cheek and looked deep into her eyes. “One kiss, Sam. I dare you.”


Damn him. If she didn’t agree, he’d think he won something here, and she couldn’t let that happen. She couldn’t let him beat her over a silly kiss. Especially if he thought his kiss would distract her from the reason she was in town.

“Fine. I’m game.”

Whistles and sighs echoed around their corner of the bar while Joe grabbed two bottles of hot sauce off the table. “The rules are”—he looked at Sam as he spoke—“time starts when I say go. Your lips must stay in contact. Tongue is optional. As soon as you part, time stops. Ready?”

With eyes stuck on each other, they nodded. Joe stood over them with a bottle of sauce in each hand and they simultaneously tilted their heads back to receive several drops on their tongues.

“Go!”

I hope you’ll check out how the kiss went and then go on to read about McCall and Lucy in Risky Surrender.  And I’d love to hear about your first kiss! Was it worthy of a second one or did it leave you with a bad taste in your mouth. hee hee Leave me a comment and you’ll be entered to win a Take A Risk Chick T-shirt. The awesome Samanthe Beck has got one and we all want to be like her don’t we? (Thanks, Samanthe, for rocking the shirt and modeling for me!)
