Blog Tour & Giveaway - Fly Like You've Never Been Grounded - SJ McCoy


Synopsis 
Laura Benson has her life together, thank you very much. Her jewelry store in San Francisco is doing wonderfully. Her design skills will soon have her traveling to London, designing a new line that should build her reputation world wide.

She's on top, which is where she likes to be - especially when it comes to men. Since giving her fiance his ring back a year ago, Laura has kept her relationships light, and short. Sexy pilot Smoke Hamilton might be hot, but she doesn't need a Mr Right, just Mr Right Now. She doesn't need a man holding her down.

From the moment he first saw her, Smoke knew Laura was his kind of sexy. What he hadn't banked on was her being his kind of smart, with a sassy mouth too. He usually prefers his women 'nice and easy', but Laura is a challenge. Smoke has always been a sucker for a challenge, he just can't leave them alone til he's conquered them.

Conquering Laura is a risk, she's Jack's cousin, Jack is not only his friend, but his employer too. Still she's a risk he has to take. As a pilot, his career comes first, and always gives him the option to fly away. He'll never let a woman tie him down again.

The chemistry between them definitely has the sparks flying, but will the scars of the past only lead them to crash and burn?




Excerpt
“Laura,” said Holly, “This is Smoke, Phoenix Chief Pilot and an old friend of Jack and Pete's. Smoke, this is Laura Benson, Jack's cousin.”
She held out her hand, he shook it as her gaze met his. Hot damn! She was gorgeous. Her bright blue eyes sparkled with fun and laughter as she smiled at him. Her long slender fingers, wrapped around his, made him want her long arms wrapped around his neck—and her long slender legs wrapped around him too, for that matter!
He was vaguely aware that the girls were getting on the waiting golf cart. He should let go of Laura's hand, but all he could do was keep staring at her beautiful face. She wasn't letting go of his hand either. He heard Holly saying “Go, go, go.” The spell was broken as Laura turned away from him.
The golf cart pulled away with three giggling women on it.
“Sorry, sweetie, no room.” Missy waved happily at them.
Smoke grinned as Laura turned back to him and rolled her eyes. “No-one could ever accuse that bunch of being subtle, sorry!”
He laughed. “Subtle no, perceptive, definitely. And I for one am grateful.” More than just grateful. He couldn't believe his luck. She was smiling at him. Damn, she was beautiful!
“Oh, don't get me wrong. I'm grateful too. I'm just not quite sure what to do with it.”
“Well, the way I see it, we could miss an opportunity because we're both taken by surprise, or we can think on our feet and make the most of the few moments we have.”
A touch of color appeared on her cheeks as she looked up at the plane and then back at him. Damn, she had a dirty mind! She looked surprised, but definitely interested. But no, he'd want more than a few moments in the back of the plane with this woman. He'd want a whole night in a big bed.
He pursed his lips and gave her a knowing smile. “When I say we can use these moments wisely, I mean you can give me your number, so I can call you and we can see where this goes.”
She laughed, looking a little embarrassed. “Of course you do.” She reached into her purse and took a business card from her wallet. As he tried to take it from her, she held on to the corner, not letting go. He met her gaze. “You only get it if you really want it, Captain. Don't take it if you don't.”
He flicked his wrist and pulled the card from her grasp. He held it up with a smile. “I really want it, Laura.” He was gratified to see the little pink stains on her cheeks deepen when he added. “And I will take it.”
She put her hands on her hips and smiled, the sexiest smile he'd ever seen. “I want it too, Smoke.” His throat went dry again when she asked, “So, are you going to give it to me?”
He was glad that the black slacks of his pilot's uniform were loose fitting, otherwise she'd see how much he'd like to give it to her!
She threw her head back and laughed. “Get your mind out of the gutter and give me your number, Smoke!”
He laughed with her as he took his wallet from his back pocket and handed her his card. “I will call you, but I need to warn you, my schedule is a little crazy. I don't know when I'll be able to get back here, but it will be as soon as I can.”
She nodded. “That's okay. My life is a little hectic too. I'm sure we'll get around to it.”
Smoke intended to make damned sure they did. “Do you ever get up to Summer Lake?” he asked.
“I'll be going back and forth until Jack and Emma get married, since I'm one of the bridesmaids. Will you be going to the wedding?”
Smoke nodded. “I will.” The golf cart was approaching. Her friends would be waiting. He took her hand again. She smiled. “I'm so glad to meet you, Laura.”
She gave his hand a squeeze. “You too, Smoke.” She climbed onto the golf cart. “I'll see you at the wedding if not before,” she called as she rode away.
Smoke stared after her.

About the Author
Hi, I'm SJ. A coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I'm a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can't write without coffee.

I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non fiction for many years. My life changed completely a couple of years ago and I returned to Romance to find my escape.

I write 'Sweet N Steamy' stories because to me there is enough angst and darkness in real life. My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write.

These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. If I'm not reading or writing you'll find me just down the road in the park - Yellowstone. I have deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way :0)

Cover Reveal - Letting Go of You - J.M. Witt


Synopsis 

James,

Letting Go of You will be the hardest decision of my life.

We were devoted and committed to one another. Secret clubs, family, friends, careers and undeniable chemistry filled our lives. Previous troubles seemed nonexistent. We were ready and willing for whatever life had to offer. Life was perfect. If only ‘perfect’ really existed.

What I didn’t expect was that one tragic event would trigger the demons you kept hidden from me. I had to decide if I could live with not knowing your secrets. And just when I thought we would make it through, another hurdle was placed in front of us. Tragedy, murder, first loves, old enemies, and death lingered at every turn.

Will your demons be the death of us? Or will my anchored heart be strong enough to hold on?

Only You
~Cassidy

Angry.
Unforgiving.

She was no longer my intern.
She was no longer mine.

REVIEW

I am so glad I recieved this book to review. This story is so much more than I anticipated. The characters are all well developed and interact so flawlessly. It is a great book, and I will definitely look for more by this author.

So much can happen in 20 years and to rekindle the love that was lost is a special gift. Mia (T) and Adrian are a special pair who go through so much to finally find each other again. Adrian is such a romantic. He’s hot and tight and all man when he comes for Mia. Such a great love story that I will reread again and again.

Title: Unchain My Heart
Series: Scorpio Stinger MC Book #2
Author: Jani Kay

Release Date:  July 7, 2014
SYNOPSIS
The Princess & The Biker – A modern day Romeo &Juliet.
Their two worlds collide, but the Biker and his Princess fight to be together. Their story continues in “Unchain My Heart” as the modern day Romeo and Juliet have fallen in love against the odds—but their families persist in trying to tear them apart.
Especially Harrison, who has an unhealthy hatred for bikers and uses his position as a cop to keep Ryder Knox away from his younger sister. Can Jade ever forgive him for the untold grief he brings to her and her man?
Ryder’s family of bikers is no better. Fearing for the club, Cobra is dead set against Ryder being with Jade. Who will Ryder choose? His Scorpio Stinger MC brothers OR his Princess?
Will Ryder and Jade be able to overcome the many obstacles in their way? Can their love survive the loss they suffer and the choices they must make?
The Beauty & The Beast
Eva has never known a man so lost, so broken, yet so cocky and confident at the same time. Harrison Summers can unravel her with a mere look, set her heart beating with a touch, make her wanton with his words.
Harrison demands her submission.
Will she ever be able to surrender, willingly, to a man? Eva doesn’t know the answer, but she’s prepared to try. After the first taste, she wants more. Never one to take the easiest route, she wants to push to the edge of her limits.
Eva is willing to give her body to Harrison.
But her heart?
No way.
He’s too guarded with his own. He’s hard, cold and distant. Set on revenge. A beast. Eva knows heartbreak when she sees it. Harrison Summers will trample her heart to pieces and not give a damn.
Intelligent, graceful and poised. She’s the beauty, he’s the beast.
Fiercely independent, Eva Ryder isn’t used to taking orders from anyone. Harrison believes it will make her submission so much sweeter.
Will she choose to live on the edge? Surrender to him?
Never before has he wanted anything this much. It destroys his plans of living for his career and not getting involved with a woman. Sex once and let go. No ties, no tomorrows. That’s how he operates. Add to that his uncontrollable desire for revenge and he’s one messed up dude.
But Eva?
Harrison hates change. But there’s absolutely nothing he can do to stop it. He’s in too deep already.
Is Eva the beauty who can tame the beast?
The one who can Unchain His Heart?

REVIEW

4 stars
Jani Kay
Scorpio Stinger MC series
Unchain My Heart
 This is my first book by this author and I will be reading more. I like MC stories and this is an amazing read. There is all the action that you need from a MC club and great alpha males with not one but two heartfelt love stories. The flow of events was natural and not rushed and even though it is a series, there was a complete story in this book.
 Ryder and Jade’s story continues and envelopes those around them. It is beautiful the love that they share and the twists that they go through to show each other that love is amazing. Harrison is Jade’s brother and he’s had his own heartbreak so what will it take to make him change his mind.
 I can’t wait to read the next in this series from Jani Kay and will be going back to read the others by her too.

AUTHOR BIO

Jani has been married for a long time to a special man, and her two children and their partners are the sunshine in her life. She is a voracious reader and would spend her last dollar on a book - always fascinated that for the mere price of a book, she can escape her world for a while and see through someone else's eyes.

Besides reading, her favorite 'thing' is traveling - she has traveled the world, learning about the ways people live and has come to the realization that no matter where we live, we all ultimately want the same things. Her hobby - Scrapbooking - keeps her up till way after midnight and her usual subjects are her family and her travels.

Ever since she can remember, Jani wanted to write stories about people, about their lives and loves. Relationships and Happiness - arguably the most difficult things to master in life and yet exactly what everyone ultimately desires (in her humble opinion).
