BLURB:

He’s annoyingly gorgeous, provocative, and fast becoming her best friend. But he also has a secret that makes the little hairs on her arms stand on end…

It wasn’t nicking an expensive watch or diamond bracelet that landed streetwise Jona Montiniere in the clutches of the police. It was a darn sweater. A judge decides that she has to return to her terminally ill mother, who dumped her in an orphanage more than twelve years ago. Worse, for the coming six weeks, she has to do charity work on an estranged aunt’s vineyards in France.

Yeah, right.

Jona is determined to sneak off at the first chance she gets. But then she meets Julian, her mother’s caretaker. Playful, understanding, and sinfully sexy, he’s everything she dreams of—but she’d be damned if she let him know.

So when the first week in her new home is over, Jona is asking herself two things. One, how could it happen that she ended up in Julian’s arms after only three days? And two, how the hell did he awaken her mother from the dead…?

READERS LOVE SUMMER OF MY SECRET ANGEL:

OH. MY. GOSH! this book, I just…I’m at loss for words. I’ve never been so captivated by a book in my life. I read every word slowly making sure I didn’t miss a single detail. I absolutely adore this book. It was so moving, it brought me to such intense tears. The life jona faced, not having all the answers that she deserved to know, to have heartbreak more than once and finally allowed herself to feel; words cannot describe this book. Such a wonderful story. Beautifully written. Beautifully told. Every character is captivating and demands your attention. It leaves you on the edge of your seat, waiting for Jona’s much deserved happy ending. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. I swear you won’t put it down once you’ve started!!

ANGELIC, BUT WITH AN EARTHY TWIST! Jona is a girl who has a world of hurt. She uses her smart tongue to hide her true emotions. Both her tongue and actions get her into a ton of trouble which in the end forces her to deal with something she never wanted anything to do with – her mother. The twist comes with her mother’s “helper” Julian who softens her in a way that she never wanted. The author does a wonderful job of bringing a certain ‘realness’ to the character Jona in all her harsh glory. Julian is what you would expect and then some (don’t want to create spoilers). The love in the novel is both heavenly and earthly all at once! You should read this book. I actually found it quite touching and would read it again. There is some cussing at the start of the novel but that gradually peters out as she undergoes some level of change.

I like this novel so much that I can actually see it as a movie. With the right actors it would be most excellent.

WOW! AMAZING! LOVED IT!!! I didn’t quite know what to expect when I first got this book, but once I started reading it I could NOT put it down. Towards the end though this book definitely yanked more than a few tears from me, which is pretty hard to do. I got this book in the evening and fell asleep reading because I just couldn’t stop reading.

AMAZING! I absolutely love this book. The author made everything seem so real to me. I cried at currant parts and laughed at other. I didn’t want this book to end.

I LOVED IT! Such a lovely story. I could not stop reading. I loved Jona and her sarcastic/snarky personality. I adored Julian and his undying angelic love. Beautiful story full of love, hope, sadness, and just the right amount of sexiness.

ADDICTING! I got this book today and I just finished it! it’s so beautiful it even made me cry. I love this book and I bet you will too.

AUTHOR BIO:

The quick-and-dirty:

I’m a girl with a passion for writing.

The genres you’ll find me hanging out at are contemporary and paranormal YA, but I’m also snooping into some adult paranormal right now. All of them romances…of course.

The nitty-gritty:

I’m an Austrian lass—totally uncomplicated and up to anything fun.

I grew up in Vienna, not by free will but because my parents decided to move there when I was only 4 years old. I. Hated. The. City. Everything about it. So right after graduation I moved back to Upper Austria, where I settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop.

I’ve been a storyteller all my life. Already in kindergarten, I came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. My teacher would call me a liar. I call it the cornerstone of my writing career.

People always told me you can’t make a living with being an author. So when my first novella PLAY WITH ME came out and shot straight to the stars within the first week, I was totally dumbstruck. Took me a while to realize what was happening, LOL.

And the personal stuff:

At the (awesome) age of seventeen, I met the love of my life. But he was a playboy, and I was so not going to be his next trophy. It took him another four years of fighting for me until I finally decided to give that “couple-thing” with him a shot. I’m now married to this man. 😉

We have an eleven-year-old son, and together we travel a lot…although I sometimes wish the trips were shorter because I can’t wait to get back to my laptop and my many stories. Unless we’re in Disneyland. No stress to go home then…

SYNOPSIS:
Born in the flames of Heaven’s wrath, he’s all things sinful…and too dangerous to love.

An immortal guardian, Aethan’s walked alone for millennia, trapped in a hell of his own, until a feisty mortal crosses his path—a female he shouldn’t even look at, one who shakes the precarious foundations of all that he is—and one who’s determined to walk the edge of danger.

All her life, Echo Carter wanted “normal,” an impossible feat given that she can see demons. Now she’s determined to hunt down the demonii responsible for the death of her friend—and no man, no matter how sexy, will stop her—until she discovers a horrifying truth about herself, forcing her to turn to Aethan. But when two stubborn wills collide, a dangerous passion ignites…

As evil closes in, will this warrior overcome his darkest fears and claim her as his—or lose her to a far more sinister fate.

AMAZON REVIEWS:

JulesJewel: This book was A-Ma-zing. I read a ton of Paranormal Romance and had hit a wall. Luckily I came across Absolute Surrender. Sexy, fun and a book you won’t want to put down. Georgia Lyn Hunter has proved herself to be a seductive writer that allows her readers to be sucked into a world where just about anything can happen. The story kept me on my toes and tenderly nourished a love connection that seemed impossible at first and had me rooting for their success. The only down side is I’m done and have no idea what to read next!! Looking forward to her next book. I’m going to miss my Aethan and Echo.

Maxene Dodds: I chose the rating for several reasons, but mainly because I couldn’t put the book down. I have read a lot of top authors in this genre over the years, and this book was just… wow!
I looked for the author to immediately buy (her) other books only to find out this is Ms GLH’s first book. I hope more of Georgia’s works will be available soon.

Lois: Amazing worlds, all consuming beings with powerful compelling characteristics. A love that defies rhealms and a male character you will want to be with!!! Oh my world. Writing perfection’ true grit mixed with palpable emotion that sends you floating of a cliff of despair,happiness and oh boy steam…five freakin stars. Read it. This is the second book i’ ve ever reviewd..i’m a picky one,so when i say crack it open i mean crack it open…an author the rises high above the frey..Yes Miam!!!!

obsessive reader: This book was excellent. So refreshing from the usual paranormal everyday formula some authors rush to put out. Bad boys with bad ass powers who are incredibly sexy and all alpha male can only be described as awesome. The females in this book are also not the damsel in distress wait until someone saves me type either. It is so rare to find people of color in these types of books without all the typical stereotypes attached. I loved aethan, echo and all the characters in this book I hope kira will get her a story really soon.
eva aldridge: Very, Very good book, I love the paranormal romance, but this was amazing. The characters are unforgettable, handsome, sexy, and oh so bad ass. I’m glad I got to know these characters, they keep you on your toes. This is the first I’ve read by this author but will definitely be reading more.

On the heels of tragic loss, the stunning and innocent Natalie Mason, meets handsome business mogul Mac Carter. As Natalie attempts to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, circumstances beyond her control draw her and Mac into a situation she wants kept secret. The two are a matched set having both experienced immense loss in their lives. Uncertain of what she should do, she decides to give fate a chance, opening her heart to Mac, who just wants to love her.

But the past, who often times takes no prisoners, rears its ugly head in a double dose. Mac’s ex-girlfriend cannot accept that their love affair is over and takes drastic measures through deception and blackmail to ensure that Mac will be hers.

Natalie, on the other hand, has to face the one responsible for her sister’s death. As her journey begins to bring justice and closure, the past transports to her feet an unexpected surprise—a long lost love desiring to posses her as his once again.

Will Mac and Natalie’s newly blossoming love be able to endure what the past has delivered or will the victors of their hearts be the old flames who are staking their claim?

ABOUT CARLIE:

I have always been a sucker for a good love story, especially with angst. I have read most of Nicholas Spark’s books for this very reason. I had no idea that I would be writing a book let alone three a year ago. My books are a work of fiction with some real events that happened to me woven in.

I began writing Fallen for You in October 2012 after I had the pleasure of meeting a well-known indie author who inspired me to push forward and complete my story. At the time, I thought Fallen for You was just going to be one book, but it has blossomed into three books. Taken by You and book 3 Given to You complete The Killer Next Door series. I wove real life and fiction together to create the series.

My latest release, Beholden is a stand-alone, but a spin-off of characters from my trilogy. It has been amazing to bring characters to life and watch them grow on the pages of my manuscript.

I have several more books in mind that I want to bring to life.

I am a second grade teacher  in my 9th year. Teaching has been so rewarding because I get to impart my love for reading onto my students. There’s nothing better than seeing a child’s face light up when they are reading a great book.

I currently reside in Southern California with my loving husband and two dogs. We enjoy the lifestyle that California has to offer and spend time at the beach and in the mountains.

SWEET KAROLINE by CATHERINE ASTOLFO (psychological suspense)

READ AN EXCERPT: http://www.amazon.com/Sweet-Karoline-Catherine-Astolfo/dp/192779207X

WATCH THE TRAILER: http://www.youtube.com/?gl=CA

BOOK BLURB:
If I knew what I know now, would I have searched so hard for the truth?

Anne Williams says she killed her best friend, Karoline. But did she? Or is there more to Karoline’s mysterious death than meets the eye?

Anne embarks on a compelling journey to discover her past and exposes an unusual history, horrific crimes and appalling betrayals. Through unexpected turns and revelations, Anne learns about love, family and who she really is. Can she survive the truth?

REVIEWS:

“Astolfo’s wonderful first sentence in Sweet Karoline explodes on the page and resonates right to the end of this twisting examination of dangerous minds. Never have I encountered a narrative voice that alternates more deftly between alienating and enticing.” —Mel Bradshaw, author of Fire On The Runway

“A deliciously twisted story about the perplexing power of adult female relationships. By turns scathingly funny and darkly insightful, Sweet Karoline is a hedonistic journey with all the right ingredients: lust, betrayal, true love and mystery. Grab a glass of wine and have the bottle handy. A compelling read from the start through to the surprising end.” —Robin Spano, author of Death’s Last Run

“In Catherine Astolfo’s chilling new novel Sweet Karoline, things aren’t always as they seem. Anne, the multifaceted anti-heroine in this noir tale takes a fateful journey into her forgotten past, uncovering the painful roots of her childhood. While furrowing for answers, a mystery unfolds, truths swirl to the surface, a heinous murder occurs. Who’s the killer? Caught in a tangled web of greed, lies and deceit Anne must come to terms with her past, present and future, and the bleak realization that those we hold close may be the last ones to trust. Compelling, visually descriptive, deftly delivered…Catherine Astolfo’s got the goods!” —Douglas Wickard, author of A Perfect Husband

“Sweet Karoline is a multi-layered mystery, where nothing is as it seems. The story grips you on page one and leads you through a maze of history, twisted relationships, and ultimately the darkness of the human mind.” —Liz Bugg, author of Oranges and Lemons

“In Sweet Karoline, Astolfo has created a daring hybrid mystery that combines elements of romance, history, and suspense in a carefully crafted story that keeps you guessing to the very end. Astolfo explores new boundaries as she extends her reach beyond the cozy mystery in this psychological exploration of the mind of a killer. A unique exploration of guilt and revenge.” —Michael J. McCann, author of The Fregoli Delusion

“The clever plot twists in Sweet Karoline will enrapture you from page one through the last paragraphs of this fast-paced modern mystery. Author Catherine Astolfo exhibits a strikingly perceptive gift for believable dialogue and rich character development. Her dry wit and colorful descriptions will have you howling in laughter at points, but in tears at others as she digs deep into the themes of guilt, race, and relationships. The powers of love and redemption are strong, but does the heart of an Ice Queen ever really melt? Enjoy the romp from Los Angeles, through Canada, to a priceless Italian rendezvous—all in the pages of Sweet Karoline, where long-buried secrets lie.” —Lisa Pell, award-winning author of Who’s Your Daddy, Baby?

BUY THE BOOK HERE:

AMAZON:

 NOOK: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/ryan-hunter-anna-katmore/1117704467?ean=2940044520219

SYNOPSIS:

She didn’t look my way. Never had. And why would she? Her universe was rotating around my soccer buddy, Tony Mitchell. As long as I had known Tony, he’d always come in a double pack. He and Liza were what some people at school called M&M. I hated that term. Hated how she stood on her tiptoes now and slung her arms around his neck. Hated how— Dammit! Was she going to kiss him?!

Ryan Hunter kissed more girls than he cares to remember. But the only one he ever wanted is in love with his best friend.

Watching Liza Matthews’ obsession with Tony Mitchell is a torture Ryan conceals from everyone. Until after a five-week soccer camp, where Tony gets involved with someone else, things suddenly take a different turn. Ryan knows if he doesn’t make a move now and grab his chance, he might never get another.

When Tony asks him to distract Liza, Ryan is only too happy. He subtly seduces her first into his soccer team and later on to his party. He does all in his power to make her see that he’s not just an insufferable playboy but a guy who cares about her. Some one-on-one soccer training, a passionate kiss—everything seems to be going the way he wants. Except Ryan didn’t reckon on his best friend showing up at the worst possible moment and destroying everything…

This book can be read as a stand-alone, but to fully enjoy it, you should read its companion book PLAY WITH ME first.

REVIEWS:

http://www.amazon.com/Ryan-Hunter-Grover-Beach-Team-ebook/dp/B00CICVO30/ref=pd_sim_kstore_1 

I was grinning like an idiot for the better part of the book!!!

BEST.GUY.POV.EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot believe how much I love Ryan Hunter right now. I mean, obviously, I already loved him in Liza’s POV. I just never imagined that the guy had it for her for the longest time!

JUST WOW. I AM TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY!

 Can someone say..B-B-BOOKGASM???? Cuz that’s exactly what this book gave me!

What could I say about this book? Apart from being fucking ecstatic when I realize

#1 There was more Ryan Hunter

#2 I got the pleasure to enter Ryan Hunter’s mind

#3 There was more Ryan Hunter

#4 RYAN-fucking-HUNTER!!!!!

Really, Need I say more?

WOW. Two days ago I couldn’t believe I didn’t know there was more of Liza and Ryan to be had. I liked the story from Liza’s POV but I LOVED it from Ryan’s.

If you’d asked me yesterday I would have said that I couldn’t like Ryan more but I was sooo wrong. He is so sweet and lovable. AND he has a personality, sth that in most YA books is missing. He cared how his friends saw him just like any other guy in his age. His playboy status was more about keeping up an image than anything else. Should I dislike it? Nope. He is an 18 year old boy. Anything less wouldn’t be believable.
Now this story is probably targeting a little lower than my age group but I really don’t care. The story was adorable without the slight whining and immaturity of Liza’s book. It’s one of these books that you can’t help falling in love with. It was fast paced, funny, and sooo cute.

*Sigh* Wow! Ryan Hunter is def one of the most swoon worthy book boyfriends out there.. He’s just so sweet and devoted towards the one he really deeply loves since the first time he saw her! Very refreshing to read a guy POV book! there are a few authors out there that are doing it and let me tell you if I would make a top 5 of authors who are doing a guy POV then Anna Katmore would def be in that list.

Oh My Freaking God!!!!!! I couldn’t believe what I just read!!!! This book, with Ryan’s POV blew my mind away!!! I loved the first one when Liza told her story and my heart broke for her and how the love she thought she’ll always have didn’t want her that way!! But reading this one and knowing how The Unbelievably Sexy Soccer Team Captain Ryan Hunter felt about her for the most part of his life was so beautiful and so freaking sweet I was grinning like an idiot for the better part of the book!!!

This story gave me a flattering heart to live with for the next week or so!!! I was in high-school pure sweet love heaven the entire read!!!

And worse, she’s a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Liza craves, she’s just a hair’s breadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she’s prepared to play ball to get her man.

“I absolutely freakin’ LOVED this. Yeah, sure it’s short. But it was still absolute perfection. Can’t wait to read anything else by Piper Shelly. I’ve just become a huge fan 🙂 Now, if I can just find another book this good so I can get over these awful withdrawals.”

“Oh, Hunter. I love love love Ryan Hunter! ♥_____♥ Piper Shelly sure knows how to make her readers giddy! I couldn’t stop smiliiiing and it’s been a long time since that happened. This may be short but I had more butterflies reading this novella than the long ones out there.”

It helps her to escape from a boring world to something with actual adventure and romance in it, she says. Even when she’s not crafting a new story, you’ll see her lounging with a book in some quiet spot. She was 17 when she left Vienna to live in the tranquil countryside of Austria, and from there she loves to plan trips to anywhere in the world. Two of her favorite places? Disneyland and the deep dungeons of her creative mind.

Please visit her website at www.pipershelly.com or write to pipershelly@hotmail.com

She would love to hear from you!

Having blown an interview with Aidan Scott, an all-about-the-facts journalist, she invites him to join her as she researches a building from a dream, believing it to be her next story.

Physical attraction, philosophical differences, and something more mystical draws the two of them together and pulls them apart as they work to unearth what may become their common destiny.

She begins uncovering history that could change Aidan’s life as he knows it and shade his black and white world with gray, while threatening to tear her own family apart.

Will she continue on this path knowing what she might destroy along the way?

AUTHOR BIO:

Christine Mazurk is a business woman and Ironman triathlete with a passion for writing stories about ‘heart’. Her business experiences and participation in endurance events have allowed her to live and travel the world with her husband John and their two cats. She believes things happen for a reason. Their two 18-year-old cats died within three months of each other, and though she and her husband agreed to wait at least a year to adopt new kittens, their new guardian angels in heaven had a different idea, so thirteen days after the second one passed, on a cold, wet, Christmas Eve, a little black kitten – now named Tango – found them. They adopted Samba, another all black kitten, a few weeks later.
