Reflection - YA Romance and a Giveaway #YARomance #Giveaway

Reflection is a #1 eBook bestseller and is now available in paperback.

Check out the blurb, an excerpt, and great giveaway the author is hosting.


Title: Reflection 
Author: Jessica Roberts 
Genre: YA Romance 
Release Date: March 20, 2018 
Cover Designer: Abe Day 

Bright, spunky Heather Robbins has escaped her small hometown and is anxiously beginning her freshman year of college. Rising above her rocky childhood, she’s found a place where good things are finally starting to happen: her own private apartment, refreshing college classes, and an intense attachment to a mysterious and rugged classmate, Nick Richards.

But when her dreamy college life turns out to be nothing more than a wonderful dream while resting in a coma, questions threaten.

Now, Heather must press forward to unlock the real past and find the answers buried deep in her mind. What she unlocks instead is a roller coaster ride through flashbacks, embellished memories, and a whirlwind romance.

And when it’s all over and she comes face to face with the truth, will she lose everything she’s fallen in love with?

He bent down by the fireplace—catching his body with his arms—and did a half push-up to rest beside me. Lying down side by side, our shoulders touching, his face close to mine, I could feel the temperature of our bodies rising, fusing together as one. Did he feel the heat?
“Let’s see here,” he huffed, teasing me with his mechanical savvy.
“Funny,” I whispered back, watching him examine the guts of the fireplace. “But once you realize it’s unfixable—”
“Hand me the matches?” His voice turned businesslike as he studied the wires.
I responded with a groan.
As I reached across his body for the small box on the floor, the smell of him suddenly caught my senses—musky and male, and much too close. I hesitated, hovering over his back, fascinated that my body was responding in a similar way to when my temper peaked. My eyelids shut, and I drank in the hot adrenalin rush, emotions that were strange, feelings I didn’t understand. I forced myself back, careful not to touch him or move any closer.
“I’ll tell you what,” I said, shaking the haze away. I brought the matches forward, lying on my stomach again but with ample space between us. “You fix it, you get a wish. If not, the wish is mine.”
He readjusted himself. “Watch and learn, sweetheart,” he said absently, keeping his attention on the project, his head bent low. “Light that for me?”
I removed a match, struck it against the strip, and carefully handed him the flame.
With a push of a button, a small spark erupted into a bright-blue flare. A muted explosion sounded, and the two-faced fire rushed across the imitation log.
“How did you do that?” I hollered.
I stared at the mesmerizing flames of blue, deep yellow, and crimson endowing our faces with a warm glow, the heat already radiating through the glass. However, a different sort of heat ignited within me. It was my competitive edge, I reasoned. A few failed attempts from him would have been nice before it burst into a bright, blazing banner of victory.
“Ahhh, the sweet smell of methane,” he heckled.
Even through my poor attitude, I allowed my shoulder to nudge his. I went to my knees and crawled toward the small cabinet to put away the matchbox. I breathed out heavily, releasing all my confusing responses to him.
“Next time you want to light it, just—”
“I know, I know,” I told him. “I watched you.” I reached up, tugging on the cabinet drawer and telling myself he could explain when I wasn’t so wound up.
Like a sudden shift in the weather, a solid wall of warmth pressed into my back as his body covered mine from behind. I stiffened instantly. He reached around my rigid body and gently took the matchbox from my hand, his entire frame as calm as a warm summer breeze, encasing mine.
As he leaned forward, putting the matchbox in the bag and placing it in the cabinet, his words teased softly in my ear, “I’m going to have to teach you some manners.”
His whispers drifted deep inside me. Every thought left instantly, replaced with a keen awareness of the warm areas where we touched. A soft energy from his body merged with a surge from my own, and with each passing second the energy increased.
“Lesson one,” his even voice rolled off my shoulder, terrifyingly close. “What do you say to someone who fixes your fireplace?”
I was lost in the emotion, my throat nervously parched, an arid swallow catching at the base of it. “Thanks?”
“You’re welcome.”
The embrace from behind felt too heavenly to withdraw from, like little angel wings caressing my entire back.
My breathing picked up as his fingers softly enveloped my shoulders. My eyes locked shut, but that only amplified the sensation as his fingers glided across the edges of my collarbone, the tips sending little bolts of lightning through my body.

I stayed unmoving, gratified and petrified at the same time. He had never touched me so intimately, as if he were getting to know me. To most it was a simple shoulder massage, but to me it was dangerous. And even though I knew this, I longed for the way his hands touched me in such a personal and protective way. 


  Jessica grew up in the San Francisco, California Bay Area where she spent most of her time playing sports alongside her six siblings. She was crowned Miss Teen California her senior year of high school and went on to Brigham Young University where she graduated in Human Development.

Rock Legend Cover Reveal - A Nothing But Trouble Novel and a Giveaway #CoverReveal #ContemporaryRomance #RockstarRomance #Giveaway

Like rockin' bad boys? Then check out Tara Leigh's Rock Legend, a Nothing But Trouble novel.

She's also hosting a great giveaway.

Read on for details...



Title: Rock King (Nothing But Trouble, Book 2) 
Author: Tara Leigh 
Genre: Contemporary Romance / Rockstar Romance 
Release Date: July 17, 2018 Cover Designer: Forever Romance 

I’m no Prince Charming.

Most people know me as the drummer for Nothing but Trouble. Depending who you ask, I’m also a playboy, a loner, the life of the party, a screw-up, or according to my fans, “The Sexiest Rock Star on the Planet.” Apparently, I’m a legend. Am I surprised? Hell, no. It’s a reputation I’ve earned behind my drum kit and behind closed doors. No one thought foster kid Landon Cox would become famous. Infamous, maybe. Notorious, probably. But successful? Never. No one except Piper Hastings. But I had to make a choice: my woman or my career. I picked fame and fortune . . . and spent every damn day since pretending I don’t regret it. Now fate’s dropped Piper back into my life. I want to believe it’s a second chance for me—for us. But while I can give her a few great nights, I can’t give Piper a future. Because there’s a difference between a legend and a fairy tale . . . Only one of them ends happily ever after.




Tara Leigh attended Washington University in St. Louis and Columbia Business School in New York, and worked on Wall Street and Main Street before “retiring” to become a wife and mother. When the people in her head became just as real as the people in her life, she decided to put their stories on paper. Tara currently lives in Fairfield County, Connecticut with her husband, children and fur-baby, Pixie.

One for the Price of Two - Fiction, a Giveaway, and limited time 99¢ price #Fiction #Giveaway #99¢

Please welcome Howard Weiner. Howard is telling u s about his fiction release One for the Price of  Two. 

The book is on sale during the tour for 99¢.

He's also hosting a great giveaway.


This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. Howard Weiner will be awarding a $25 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

Fraternal twins are raised by an ambivalent aunt who provides an unusual childhood experience. One twin leaves home to join the armed forces and is ultimately assigned to a Special Forces unit conducting clandestine operations in North Korea. The death of one his unit members produces an introduction to an organized crime family specializing in murder for hire. The funeral for the family's son and an interest in their daughter brings new blood and methods to the family business.

Enjoy an Excerpt

Bell hadn’t given the matter substantial thought beforehand. He expected to be greeted by an undertaker and a funeral hearse. That’s what the briefing packet stated. Instead, the hangar held only a recent model pickup truck—badly in need of a wash and wax. The truck belonged to the sister, not Uncle Seb. Yet another oddity.

The airport personnel maneuvered the cargo lift to the rear door of the plane. The metal casket glided across the bed of rollers in the plane’s cargo hold and onto the lift platform’s roller mat. A single member of the ground crew completed the task, and the cargo lift pivoted toward the pickup truck where two ground crew slid the casket onto the bed of the truck and closed the truck’s lift gate.

Carrullo’s sister and uncle moved to the truck. At the last moment, the sister looked in Bell’s direction and motioned for him to join them. Bell grabbed his army issued duffle and hustled across the expanse of oil stained concrete for his trip to meet the rest of the Carrullo clan.

The ride from the airport to the family home in North Hills was uncomfortable. The sister said nothing. Not a single word. By contrast, Uncle Seb continued the outward signs of shock and grief.

The truck emerged from the Fort Pitt Tunnel, crossed Three Rivers at the Point, and continued north on I-79 to the Wexford exit. Carrullo regaled Bell with stories about the area’s frequent snowfall and how the cinders spread on the roadways turned the white snow into a dirty palette of brown. Carrullo hadn’t exaggerated. They drove past mile after mile of dirty snow.

Bell wore only his uniform, having forgotten to take an overcoat, muffler, or gloves. He wanted to ask if the truck’s heating system worked. It was a newer model after all, but the prospect of interrupting the uncle’s wailing and the sister’s quiet resolve seemed inappropriate. That and the empty coffee cups, crushed bakery boxes, and discarded fast food wrappers on the floor suggested comfort wasn’t a high priority. By the time the truck turned onto the family homestead’s driveway, Bell lost all feeling in his feet and hands.

About the Author:
Howard Weiner is a recent addition to the literary genre of fiction. Writing mysteries, thrillers, crimes—with a touch of romance—an approach described by one reader as “one bubble off.”

Many authors sharing the genre have characters whose fortune is determined by others. They literally have dodged the bullet that otherwise would have killed them. Weiner’s characters make their own fortune—good or bad—and they live with the results.

Weiner’s own experiences are blessed with no small number of noteworthy characters and events. He brings these slightly off-kilter individuals to life, complete with their own stories and dramas. Like the child prodigy in his first novel, "It Is Las Vegas After All", who comes to the starting edge of adulthood and then loses the approval of his doting parents, the sponsorship of one of America’s great institutions of higher education, and gains the enmity of his girlfriend’s father—an international arms dealer—to become a home-grown terrorist operating on U.S. Soil.

A survivor of rich, nuanced bureaucracies in the public and private sector, Weiner writes about characters whose career choices and decisions are morally questionable. A student of personal behavior in complex circumstances, Weiner brings these often cringe-worthy characters to life. Some are amoral, others immoral in a narrow slice of their lives, yet they otherwise look and act like people we all know from work or even childhood. Like one of the female leads in his novel, "Serendipity Opportunity", an out-of-the-box thinker who flunks most of life’s basic relationship tests, yet she is someone you never want pursuing you in the cause of justice. There’s a former foreign security official who uses his protected status as a witness for federal prosecutors to provide cover for his own mayhem and murder in Weiner’s third novel, "Bad Money".

Many of Weiner’s stories are born out of real life events: The mix-up in luggage claim at the airport in, "Bad Money", the chronic high school slacker in "Serendipity Opportunity" whose one stroke of good fortune creates his opportunity to perpetrate a complex series of frauds, or the brilliant student in "It Is Las Vegas After All" who uses his prodigious talents toward an evil end.

As a former federal official, Weiner can neither confirm nor deny having the highest security clearances in classified security programs. Yet, his knowledge of the dark web, criminal organizations, and security organizations takes stories from the popular press to the next level.
