Sneak Peek Monday: Fighting Fate by Louise Clark (contemporary romance with paranormal elements)

FIGHTING FATE COVERToday’s Sneak Peek is by Lachesis Publishing author Louise Clark.  Her book is called Fighting Fate, a contemporary romance with some paranormal twists and turns.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Faith Hamilton is different. Blessed with the power to draw her ancestors from the past into the present, Faith formed a strong bond with Andrew Byrne, her charming rogue of a “relative” from pre-Revolutionary Boston. Andrew’s first visit when they were both teens led to many more over the years. But despite her close friendship with Andrew, Faith has always felt that her life would never be normal unless she made a drastic change. Now she avoids relationships with people outside her tight family circle, fearing she might be forced to reveal her ability. Instead, she tries to keep it a secret, and her private life hidden as she focuses on her career. For a while she succeeds, until she meets the sexy and dynamic Cody Simpson.

Cody is a mathematician, a man devoted to classifying and defining the world around him.  Once hurt by a woman whose sole focus was her career, not the people in her life, he swore he would never allow himself to be attracted to this kind of woman again—until he meets the beautiful and captivating Faith Hamilton.

Intrigued by Cody, Faith can’t stop her growing attraction to him. Nor can she keep that charming rogue, Andrew from popping into her life whenever he chooses. As she frantically schemes to keep the two men apart, her problems multiply at home, at work, and most of all in her relationship. How long can she keep up this double life? More importantly, what will Cody think if he finds out about her magical power?

EXCERPT:

Footsteps sounded on the staircase. Faith closed her mouth on what she’d planned to say as a male figure emerged from the upper level, running lightly down the stairs. Seeing the two women he hesitated briefly, then he flashed a grin and said, “Hi.

Black hair, blue eyes, muscles in all the right places, Cody Simpson was the kind of man Chloe would appreciate as a son-in-law. He was also the kind of man Faith avoided. She smiled blandly back at him. “Hi.”

“Nice day, isn’t it?” He glanced at Faith, sweeping her with a look that catalogued every part of her, from head-to-toe. Then he deliberately looked from Faith to Chloe, his eyebrows raised.

Very much aware that the slacks she was wearing did little to minimize her height and that her blond hair had started to stray from the restraints that kept it in a tight chignon, Faith wished she knew some way of escape. She didn’t want to introduce Cody to her mother, who she knew would be intrigued by the good-looking man. She knew Cody expected to be introduced and that he wouldn’t understand why a casual, ‘Cody this is my mother, Chloe. Mom, this is Cody Simpson,’ left her frozen in terror. Each and every one of the good manners drilled into her from the time she was tiny was actively demanding she make the simple introduction. Every survival instinct was fighting back, just as intensely, telling her that she’d be a fool to open that door, even a crack.

She swallowed hard, avoided Cody’s eyes, ignored the surprised curiosity emanating from her mother, and said, “Yup.”

Cody raised his brows, then shrugged. “See you later, then.”

“Sure,” Faith said, hoping she wasn’t blushing.

Cody nodded and headed off toward the NIT offices. Faith shoved open the front door.

Outside Chloe said cheerfully, “What a gorgeous male. Who is he?”

Faith shrugged. “Our new systems guy. He lives upstairs so we hardly ever see him.”

“You know him then?”

Faith shook her head. “Not really.” A wash of heat told her that now she really was blushing. Not surprising since she’d just told her mother a whopper. Well, not a complete whopper. What she knew about Cody came from Sue Green. She respected Sue’s opinion enough that she’d wasted more than an hour or two fantasizing about dating Cody Simpson, but she didn’t actually know him the way you do when you talk to someone. Nor was she going to allow herself to get to know him. As attractive as he was, Cody Simpson wasn’t for her. Not now. Not ever.

Summer Lovin’ Reads: What books do you love to read in the summer?

Summer time is a great time for reading. It’s the time when many of us take vacation or head to a cottage or cabin on the weekends. The days are longer, we get up earlier and so we have some extra time to tuck into a good book.

1943a51e38f837556c4390de954716b5When I was growing up, my mum worked in a nursing home as a housekeeper. The old ladies loved her and would give her treats to bring home to her girls, including bags of Harlequin romances! I would spend the entire summer reading those books. Okay, okay, many of them had that formula where the guy is a jerk the entire way through and then lo-and-behold at the end of the book he declares his love for her. But some of them were romantic comedies, my favourites, because the hero and heroine were far more engaging and fun.

Of course summer time was also when I’d get to read all my big fat historical romances – which I’ve written about before. One summer I went through all of Kathleen Woodiwiss’s entire collection. I remember everyone was crazy about Shana but I never liked the heroine. The Wolf and the Dove will always be my favourite.

The-Amityville-Horror-Novel-200x321Summer time was also great for reading horror books like The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson, but I would always get so scared, I’d end up hiding them behind the other books on my shelf, so I couldn’t see them. One summer I got into the true story books – Fatal Vision by Joe McGinniss and The Burning Bed by Faith McNulty. I read a lot of those books. I truly believe that everything I read as a kid had an impact on me – inspiring me to study journalism and film, and eventually becoming an editor. :)

I have a big TBR pile of books I want to read this summer, but for now, I’m enjoying reading through manuscripts.

So what books do you like to read in the summer?

See you next week!

I know that Lachesis Publishing has some great reads for summer right here!

What if perfection isn’t truly perfect?

But when Darcy finds herself looking into the handsome face of the man who graces the cover of her soon-to-be-released novel, she’s convinced her dreams of perfection have come true. Or have they?

Sneak Peek Monday: Her Kind of Man by Elaine Cantrell (new adult contemporary romance)

her-kind-of-man-500x724Today’s Sneak Peek is the new adult contemporary romance Her Kind of Man by Elaine Cantrell.

What it’s about:

Is it possible she’s finally found her kind of man?

Ross Williams has been in love with Kara Cochrane since they were kids, so when Kara’s fiancé Brandon Miles cheats on her with Kara’s own sister, and calls off their wedding—Ross steps in to rescue the damsel in distress.

A heartbroken Kara just wants to get on with her life and hunky Ross provides her with a definite distraction—that is until she starts falling for him. Big time.

But a devastating family secret threatens to destroy everything that Kara holds dear—including her relationship with Ross.

EXCERPT:

Katie grabbed her arm. “Come on. We’re getting to the bottom of this.”

Kara dragged her feet as Katie towed her across the parking lot. “Katie, maybe . . .”

“What’s wrong with you?” Katie glared over her shoulder. “Hurry up!”

Kelly and Brandon were still wrapped around each other when Katie and Kara reached them.

“Kelly! ” Katie exclaimed. “What do you think you’re doing?”

Kelly jerked away from Brandon so fast she stumbled and had to grab his arm to keep her balance. Even in the parking lot’s dim light, Kara saw her sister’s face had gone scarlet as had Brandon’s.

Kara didn’t say anything. She couldn’t.

Kelly flinched as Brandon took her hand and squeezed it. “I’m sorry, Kara. We never meant for you to find out this way.”

“What were you going to do?” Katie demanded with a wave of her hand. “Leave her at the altar?”

“No,” Kelly replied. Her eyes glittered like two burning blue coals. “We planned to tell her tomorrow night. That way she’d have the weekend off to … to … to get used to things.”

Brandon looked Kara directly in the face for the first time. “I’m sorry, Kara. You have to know I never meant to hurt you, but I can’t marry you if I’m in love with your sister.”

Kara didn’t bother to answer. She didn’t know what to say anyway. How do you act, what do you do, when you catch the man you love kissing your sister? Her sister! Oh, how could she? This betrayal by one of her nearest and dearest cut to the bone.

She gritted her teeth to hold back her tears and hurled Brandon’s beautiful ring toward him and Kelly. He tried to catch it, but he missed, and the ring landed at his feet.

“Let’s go, Katie,” she said. She spun on her heel and stomped away with her head held high.

Sneak Peek Monday: Give Me Shelter by Alexis D. Craig (romantic suspense)

Give Me Shelter COVERToday’s Sneak Peek is from the romantic suspense novel Give Me Shelter by Alexis D. Craig.

What it’s About:

Inspector Eli Miller’s unspoken feelings for his partner, Bex, color his whole life. When his past comes calling, will it be the push he needs to seek a future with her?

Inspector Rebecca ‘Bex’ Mulcahy has lived long enough to know that love is a street con at best, and a dangerous distraction at worst. Any feelings she has for her partner Eli definitely fall into the latter category. Will her dedication to her job keep her from finding a possible future with Eli?

Their latest case is protecting Violet Burrell, a young woman with scars on her soul stretching back to birth, who inadvertently witnesses a shockingly brutal murder at the hands of a sadist. Violet is determined to testify in court. Her strength and courage impress Eli and Bex, who will protect her at all costs.

But it is Violet’s beauty and spirit that entrances Junior Inspector Atticus Randall. Atticus is also assigned to protect Violet, and while he knows he should ignore his growing feelings for her, he just can’t stop himself from falling for the brave beauty.

Life in the Las Vegas branch of Witness Protection has never been more tangled. When the emotional landmines start a chain reaction, everyone in the blast radius is going to need a little shelter.

EXCERPT:

The knock at his front door effectively cut his ruminations short as it caught his attention. Leaving his glass on the table, he opened it only after checking the peep hole and seeing a familiar face. “Hey, you okay?”

Bex gave an exhausted nod, barely moving her head. “Yeah.” When she didn’t follow up with anything further, he took in the droop in her shoulders and the slightly sallow complexion that she got when she was well and truly tired, and stepped aside without comment. “Smells good in here.” She paused stepping over the threshold. “Am I interrupting?”

The fact that she even bothered to ask him told him exactly how tired she was. “Nah, just relaxing with some Thai take away. You are always welcome to join me.” Her smile in reply was all the thanks he needed as he led her to the couch and detoured to the kitchen to get her a beer and an additional fork.

She was already popping a chicken curry puff in her mouth as she opened the first box of pad seuw. “I love Siam Kitchen.”

He watched her as she ate, finding her infinitely more interesting than the movie as he snuck a fork in here and there. The silence between them was comfortable, though he found it curious that she still wore her gun as she snuggled into his comfy couch. “You just get done?”

Bex nodded and her red hair fell from her shoulder like a curtain between them. “Just endless paperwork and little things with this damn family, and then I took Vi home and helped her get a little more settled, a few more groceries, stuff like that.” She set the empty paper box on the coffee table in front of them and heaved a soul-deep sigh.

Getting a new witness, especially a new entrant to Witness Protection always had a special set of trials, at least at the beginning of the acquaintance. It took a bit to settle into a comfortable rhythm of regular contact, attorney meetings, and court dates. Once established, it was a lot smoother for all involved and less stressful, barring the unforeseen.

“Good for you.” He nodded while sipping his drink, eyes never leaving her. “She’s a tough kid. You’d think she’d be a hard case but . . .”

“She’s not.” It left her lips as a barely audible whisper accompanied by an almost imperceptible shake of her head. “You don’t start out a hard case.” She grabbed her beer from the table before shifting on the couch to face him. “Life wears on you, relentlessly. You can let it grind you all the way down, or you fight back. She fought back.” Her beer bottle was raised in silent toast with an ironic smile.

Feeling incredibly dense for not understanding sooner, the answer to his internal question from earlier today presented itself. “You see yourself in her, don’t you?” It wasn’t a question he asked lightly or without some knowledge of how difficult her own childhood had been with an unrepentantly alcoholic mother and a wide array of potential fathers.

Her shrug was one he recognized instantly as her dismissal of his question. She pulled it out whenever he got too close to an especially raw emotional spot. She didn’t have many, but he’d managed to find more than one on occasion. “She’ll be fine.”

Not sure to which ‘she’ Bex referred, he simply agreed. “I have no doubt.” He wanted to reach out, touch her, but he’d known her long enough to be able to sense when she was at her ragged edge, and the contact, as much as he may have wanted it, would not have been beneficial to her in that moment.

Tipping her bottle of beer up to drain it, she set it on the table next to the pad seuw carcass. “So what was with you today? You looked like you’d seen a ghost.”

Speaking of emotional sore spots, he shrugged and stood, taking their trash to the kitchen. “May I get you another one?” he called from behind the open stainless steel fridge door. She may have been his best friend, but this was not something he discussed with anyone, ever, and talking about it with Bex would make it especially poignant given that he desperately wanted what was not possible between them.

If he told her about his memories of Zoe, his wishes for something different than the loneliness he lived with, and most importantly his desire for her, and she wasn’t on board, it would be awkward and horrible. They were both established here and in the Marshal Service, and it would put an undue strain on both their jobs and their personal lives. He simply wasn’t willing to sacrifice his friendship on the altar of chance.

Guest Author Blog: What Inspires Your Writing? by Louise Clark (romance and paranormal author)

Our guest blog today is by Lachesis author Louise Clark. Louise is a multi-published author and my predecessor at Lachesis Publishing. :) Louise has published one title with us called Fighting Fate, a contemporary romance with some paranormal twists and turns.

Our ongoing topic is: what inspires your writing? Here’s Louise . . .

SnoozingUp until a couple of years ago I had two cats, Brandy The West Coast Princess and Whisky The Travelling Cat. Whisky and Brandy were brother and sister and like all siblings they fought. If Brandy curled up on my lap for a snuggle, her brother Whisky would leave off whatever he was doing (usually eating) and hop up into my lap too. Since Whisky was larger than my lap, he usually pushed his sister off. She would rise, very dignified, and pretend she was leaving. I say pretend, because a scratch behind the ears or a rub on her tummy would be enough to convince her to curl up beside me on the couch so I could continue to stroke her. Whisky might kick her in the head (pretending to do it accidentally as he focused on finding the most comfortable position on my lap), but she’d show him her haunches and stay put. Once they were both settled, they would coexist quite happily, and snooze for hours, but it was that early stage where they fought for attention, when they came into conflict that reminds me of my writing process.

You-Woke-Me-UpI write romances and romance is a character driven genre, so it is the characters who provide my inspiration. Character driven inspiration usually arrives at exactly the wrong moment. Like when I’m in the middle of a project that belongs to someone else. A new character, or group of characters, saunter into my subconscious and take up residence. Once they are there, they won’t go away, leaving me struggling to fulfill the needs of the characters in the current work in progress, while I listen to the new gang rant about whatever their issues are.

 

Travelling-CatIf I like this new bunch as people and their problems are interesting enough, they will get their own book. Sometimes they don’t. The trick is not to abandon the group I was working on initially. That’s where my experience with Whisky and Brandy comes in. Rub a tummy with one hand, scratch behind the ears with the other. Focus on one, but don’t forget the other. In writing terms, that means making notes on the new project, but actually writing the other. When the first story is finished, the new one will be ready for the writing process to begin.

 

The best part of the cuddle method is the pleasure it brings to all involved. Yes my wrist would ache from the repetitive motion of that endless tummy rub, but Brandy’s purr signified success and was an ongoing reward. Developing a new story while working on another has the same kind of benefits. The new story is all about giving the imagination free rein, allowing myself to play with new friends and the joy of discovery. Knowing that new stories are there to be told encourages me to continue with the often hard work of writing a novel.

It’s a never ending process and it all begins with inspiration. And a tummy rub.
