Blurb
Olive has always been content living an anti-social existence while letting the characters she writes about fulfill her wild side. She’s worked hard to achieve a zero human interaction life. However, that came to an end when out of nowhere her best friend announced she’s moving out, and her brother was moving in. Not only does Olive now have to deal with the guy that has teased her their whole life, but he also came with a cat the size of a human child.

Hank’s had a thing for Olive for as long as he could remember. When he realized she needed a roommate, he jumped at the chance. Why wouldn’t he when annoying Olive had always been his favorite pastime? Then one day when Hank let his curiosity get the better of him, he discovered Olive had a whole other side of her she kept hidden away.

Now, all Hank had to do was convince Olive life was a heck of a lot more fun when you add some fire to it. Honestly, what could possibly go wrong?



Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Teased by Fire is the perfect combination of steam, romance, and humor!!!!

The book opens with Olive steaming mad that her bestie, Miranda, is moving out. She isn’t mad that Miranda is leaving. She is sad, but she would never ask her friend to turn down her dream job. No, she is mad that Miranda’s brother, Hank, is moving in. She has worked hard to maintain her anti-social existence, and Hank is the complete opposite. This girl is clueless about what’s coming her way….see Hank has always had a thing for her, and he is about tired of keeping those feelings secret.

Can I just say that I ABSOLUTELY ADORE Olive!!!! She is one of the most likeable and unique female lead characters I’ve had the pleasure to meet….and she owns that uniqueness which made me love her more. This woman has a Christmas tree in her room all year long! I would love that!!!!  That’s not to say she doesn’t have insecurities like most women do, but she does not let those insecurities determine the direction of her life.

Hank is one of those guys you can’t help but love. Yeah, he’s pretty easy on the eyes, but he is much more than his looks. He loves Olive for who she is even if he thinks she needs to get out more, but he accepts that about her. He challenges Olive which she needs sometimes. And, who couldn’t love a guy who has a cat named Dog? Speaking of Dog, she was a character herself! I LOVED HER!!!

This wasn’t just a fantastic romantic comedy. It was about accepting who you are as a person and owning it. That is a lesson I think a lot of us could learn. This is my first book by Molly O’Hare, and I’m so thankful and excited that I found her. If you want a book that just brings a smile to your face and makes reality slip away for a bit, you can’t find a better book than Teased by Fire.

Author Bio
Much like any author out there, sleeping does not come easy to Molly. As it turns out, she has horrible insomnia. When she was younger, to help herself fall asleep she would recite stories. Each night she’d pick up where the story left off previously until the tale was complete. One morning, after she finished a particularly fun adventure, she decided she wanted to start sharing them with others. A few months later, here she is, sharing her lack of sleep with all of you. Who says the stories in our heads can’t be fun for others?

Also, she loves Fun Facts. New ones are at the end of each of her book. If you look close enough, some are hidden on her website too.

About AJ Alexander

Fluent in sarcasm, Supernatural, and song lyrics, I like talking to people and finding what makes them tick, though that probably has to do with the Psychology degree. I’m up before the sun because my kids don’t sleep, chugging tea and coffee to keep my eyes open and my brain semi functional. Being married to a man in uniform means I’ve lived a lot of places, survived seeing my husband for half the amount of time I’ve been married, and spent a lot of time raising my kids alone.

I love to write messed up psychos with lots of angst, happily ever afters that have to be worked for. Women with sass and backbone, men with a twisted hero complex and the need to control are my favorite to read as well as write.

The Makings of a Lady

The Makings of a Lady

by Catherine Tinley

 

Synopsis

Be calm, she thought.
Be gracious. Be twenty-two.

Lady Olivia Fanton is eager to prove she’s no longer a child. However, just as she thinks she’s found a suitable match in the suave Mr Manning, charismatic Captain Jem Ford walks back into her life, bringing with him all the embarrassment of her infatuation four years before! She’s determined to appear mature, distant, friendly. But does she dare hope he’ll notice her as the lady she’s become?



Christie’s Review

 4 STARS

The Makings of a Lady gave me two things I love: a historical romance and a somewhat “friends to more” romance.

Lady Olivia has always had feelings for Jem Ford. The book opens with her hoping for a marriage proposal from him, but she doesn’t get that. She gets the news that he is leaving for Australia. Her hopes are dashed. However, she doesn’t marry in the years that pass, and she feels unsettled. She is too old to be considered a girl, yet in those times, she was also not allowed to be a woman. Her brothers have families, and she has no nothing in her life to challenge her. This is why I liked Olivia…she wanted to be her own person, not just someone’s niece, aunt, sister-in-law, or sister. She wanted her own identity. What an independent thinking woman well ahead of her time.

She won’t be bored for long because Jem has returned, and all her feelings for him return as well. But, she is different, more mature. She decides she will be friendly to him, but she won’t ever let her true feelings show, especially now that she has a man that may be the right one for her, Mr. Manning. She can try to convince herself of that. Things get complicated as Jem has always harbored feelings for her, and he left to make something of his life, maybe even to make himself worthy for her.

The romance is sweet and told from both points of view, so readers get a little insight into what the other is thinking, even if Olivia and Jem are clueless….which made things a bit frustrating with all their miscommunications.

I highly recommend reading this book and the series if you love historical novels with strong women and men who are gallant heroes and a bit of humor thrown in.

Strong (A Stage Dive Novella): 1001 Dark Nights by Kylie Scott Excerpt Tour

2 Oct

 

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kylie Scott comes a new story in her Stage Dive series…

When the girl of your dreams is kind of a nightmare.

As head of security to Stage Dive, one of the biggest rock bands in the world, Sam Knowles has plenty of experience dealing with trouble. But spoilt brat Martha Nicholson just might be the worst thing he’s ever encountered. The beautiful troublemaker claims to have reformed, but Sam knows better than to think with what’s in his pants. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to make his heart fall into line.

Martha’s had her sights on the seriously built bodyguard for years. Quiet and conservative, he’s not even remotely her type. So why the hell can’t she get him out of her mind? There’s more to her than the Louboutin wearing party-girl of previous years, however. Maybe it’s time to let him in on that fact and deal with this thing between them.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

EXCERPT

“Ooh, busted,” said Lizzy. “The bodyguard caught you looking.”

“Shut it.” I inched my chin up a bit, trying not to frown because frowning gave you lines. “Sam and I have known each other for years and nothing has ever happened. You’re completely wrong about this.”

“Am I?”

“Yes, there’s nothing between us.”

“So that’s why you were staring at him?”

I chose not to answer that. “And you know he prefers to be called executive protection officer instead of bodyguard.”

At this, Lizzy burst out giggling, a malicious glee in her eyes. No wonder I liked my sister-in-law these days.

Ben shot us both an irritated glance. We both ignored it.

Of course, I’d known Sam would probably be here. Rock stars going out in public could be a delicate thing. People had a tendency to get overexcited. And while one person wanting an autograph wasn’t a problem, twenty or thirty of them suddenly swarming definitely could be. Having once been part of the entourage, I’d seen it happen to Ben and his fellow Stage Dive band members enough times to be wary. And you couldn’t get by with ordinary security. Rock stars needed protection from their over-zealous fans, but on the other hand they didn’t want the fans roughed up or hurt in any way. It required a delicate balance: control, experience, and a whole gamut of scary physical skills. Hence Sam.

Still, Portland seemed generally less crazy than the good old days back in LA. All of the guys seemed calmer and more settled away from the constant craziness of the party scene. Not to mention the effect of all of the wives/partners and various offspring. The biggest rock band in the world had officially been domesticated.

It was kind of cute. Or sad. I don’t know.

“Sorry, I didn’t mean to stir you,” she lied. “What do you think of your brother’s new musical bromance?”

On the small stage set up in the corner of the room, a young man wailed his heart out while playing an acoustic guitar. Much angst about a girl who only called him after midnight. Trust a rockster to turn a simple booty call into a heartbreaking ballad. The song was damn good though. He had talent. If only I hadn’t had my fill of the type when I was younger. The kid looked to be in his early to mid-twenties. Lanky with lots of tattoos. Your typical rock ’n roll Prince Charming. Gag. These days my type ran more toward…actually, what I needed or wanted in a male was a total mystery.

And my gaze did not stray back to Sam. That did not happen.

Talkin’ Trash (The Bear Bottom Guardians MC Book 2)

2 Oct

Linc has two very important things on his mind—professional football and his motorcycle club.

What he does not have on his mind is the woman that drives him crazy and makes him want to do stupid things, like throw caution to the wind.

Nope, not Linc.

At least, that’s the lie he tells everyone.

In reality, every time Conleigh’s name is mentioned, he squirms.

She’s everything that he wants, wrapped up in a cute little package that is stamped ‘hands freakin’ off.’

She’s four years younger than him, in school to be a doctor, and thinks football is stupid.

Even more, Linc and Conleigh get along like oil and water.

There’s not a single second that they’re in each other’s presence that they’re not at each other’s throats.

But all it takes is hearing that she’s in trouble for Linc to drop every single thing—football and MC duties alike—and head to her side.

A side that he’ll remain at until they either kill each other, or finally give into the heat between them.

Either way you look at it, he’s well and truly screwed.
