UNRAVELED and giveaway with Jen Frederick

THIS WAS ONLY TEMPORARY, I reminded myself, as Samantha so sweetly kissed me back. I’m only here for a short time I reminded myself but as I felt her tongue stroke the side of my tongue, as she nipped her teeth against my lip, I wanted to just drown in the sensation. Her scent filled my head and the air around us shrank until all I knew was her small body sitting so close to mine. I moved my hand from her shoulder to cup her neck and angled her face for deeper penetration. I licked every inch inside of her mouth until the taste of her was all that I knew on my tongue.

And all that time I stared in to her green eyes and not once did she look like she was anywhere but right here with me. I saw my reflection there. Her heartbeat was made wild by my kisses.

And temporary was the farthest thing from my mind.

Twenty-five-year-old Sgt. Gray Phillips is at a crossroads in his life: stay in the Marine Corps or get out and learn to be a civilian? He’s got forty-five days of leave to make up his mind but the people in his life aren’t making the decision any easier. His dad wants him to get out; his grandfather wants him to stay in. And his growing feelings for Sam Anderson are wreaking havoc with his heart…and his mind. He believes relationships get ruined when a Marine goes on deployment. So now he’s got an even harder decision to make: take a chance on Sam or leave love behind and give his all to the Marines.

Twenty-two year old Samantha Anderson lost her husband to an IED in Afghanistan just two months after their vows. Two years later, Sam is full of regrets—that she didn’t move with her husband to Alaska; that she allowed her friends to drift away; that she hasn’t taken many chances in life. Now, she’s met Gray and taking a risk on this Marine could be her one opportunity to feel alive and in love again. But how can she risk her heart on another military man who could share the same tragic fate as her husband?

Hello everyone!

Anna here, writing on behalf of the writing team of Anna Leigh Keaton and Madison Layle. Madi’s off doing her day job, so I get to do the jabbering.

A little about the two of us.

Madi and I have been friends for about eight years, and co-authors for seven of those eight. I met her the same way I met my husband—online. The funny thing is, Madi and I have talked dirtier online than I ever did with my hubby! (Little erotic author joke there.)

We’ve got over 20 co-authored books out in the world, all erotic romance. Although I do write some more sensual books on my own, the stories we write together are always steamy hot and pretty naughty. (Madi’s a very bad influence on me!)

This week was the release of our second book in the Puma Nights series from Carina Press, Falke’s Captive.

Book one, Falke’s Peak, came out a little less than a year ago to hot reviews.

Madi and I are thrilled to pieces with this series, and Carina Press, and well, just everything to do with the Falke stories. We can’t get enough of these sexy and sinful shifter brothers. If you love shape-shifting heroes and the women who can’t get enough of them, triad relationships, a little BDSM thrown in to keep things extra spicy, then we firmly believe that the Puma Night series is for you!

So, on to the books.

Falke’s Peak – Book 1 in the Puma Nights series—introduces you to Axel and Gunnar, the two oldest Falke brothers. Two of a set of quads.

She couldn’t believe her eyes.

Stressed out ad-exec Dakota wandered into Catamount Outfitters in search of a guide for a wilderness excursion. She didn’t expect to be greeted by not one, but five of the most ruggedly delicious-looking men she’d ever seen. Not to mention a live cougar guarding the shop.

The Falke brothers have more than just good looks in their genes.

Eldest brother Axel agrees to guide Dakota on her mountain trek. In cougar form, Axel’s twin, Gunnar, was there as a protection from predators—but he had his eye on the sexy client instead.

Into the wild…

While the rule with clients was “paws-off,” both Axel and Gunnar couldn’t resist Dakota’s seductive Native American beauty and determination. As cold days led to hot nights in the cabin, Axel and Gunnar wondered if they’d finally found a woman strong enough to tame them…

Falke’s Captive – Book 2 in the Puma Nights series—introduces you to Kelan and Reidar, the next two brothers from the first set of quads. (There are two more brothers and a sister who will get their own stories before the series is finished…so don’t worry!)

A graduate student working in animal genetics, Beth Coldwell is in town to track and tag big cats in the wild. Her prospects for the summer only improve when she meets Kelan and Reidar Falke and decides the sexy brothers are the right pair to fulfill her other, less than scientific, desires…

But her research is a threat to the Falke family secret. When Kelan, in cougar form, is captured, that secret comes closer than ever to being revealed. He escapes, but not before Beth draws a blood sample, and analysis shows this is no ordinary mountain lion.

Kelan and Reidar cannot deny the powerful attraction they feel toward Beth. She might just be their destined mate. But if they reveal themselves to her, will she embrace who they are or see them as just another science experiment?

For those of you who might prefer a tamer romance, I have a new release out from Cobblestone Press. The sex is still pretty spicy, but this is more of a sensual romance, with a touching story about two broken souls coming together with a little nudge from a trio of grumpy old men and a sweet set of infant twins.

Dexter Morgan needs a nanny. The month-old twins won’t stop crying, and the nannies keep running away. He’s exhausted, grieving the death of his sister—the twins’ mother—and terrified he won’t be a good father. He’s at the end of his rope.

Crystal Jorgensen needs a job. After being out of the workforce for three years while she battled breast cancer, she’s finding it impossible to get back in. When her meddling uncles pressure her to see if their next door neighbor could use her help with his new babies, she reluctantly knocks at his door.

To read an excerpt of Just Breathe.

Even though I’m from New Orleans, but now residing about 1,000 miles away in Baltimore, I once took a tour through the French Quarter on a carriage ride.  The very thin man leading the tour was of average height.  I didn’t expect such a deep voice from him, but as he rode us around he spoke with passion about the various landmarks, legends, and history.  I was equally surprised at how he could recall so many little odd facts and stories.  Surely, he had to have been making some of this stuff up.  Upon further research, it seems my tour guide was dead on (using this expression on purpose here…) with all his facts.  Spooky!

However, aside from passing Nicolas Cage’s and Brangelina’s pads, the thing that stuck out the most about the tour was how a lot of the third floor apartments stay vacant.  According to our tour guide, anyone who had tried to live in some of these third floor apartments had been spooked away.  So, I decided when I do move back that I would rent one.

We rode passed a lot of fortune tellers who had set up tables throughout the streets.  People lined up to ask them about their true, future, or current love, but people visiting them should do so with caution.  People seeking their answers should make sure they want to know the answers first.  Sometimes it’s better not to know because the fortune tellers may foretell a blessing, or they may foretell a curse!  (For example, my best friend was told her boyfriend would go to jail and he did!)

Join us next week as we discuss: ABOVE GROUND CEMETERIES

Author Bio:  In her latest release, Child of the Fallen Angels, Diana struggles to find her place in life.  After discovering a new world of witchcraft through a former lover, she tries to take control of the life she feels she worked so hard to build.  Diana finds her spells working, but not quite as she planned.  The energy blesses her with what she wants, but not without balancing those great blessings with great sacrifices.  She ends up using every bit of her strength to withstand adversaries which she herself has inadvertently nourished.
