Mosaic, the exciting conclusion to The Dragonfly series, coming June 30, 2014!
The future never goes as planned. People are never what they seem. Time changes everything.


So you want to know what happened to Anna and Julian? Well, listen up, because I’ve got the whole scoop. I’m Jules, btw, and I am an artist, as you already know if you’ve read Watercolor. What you might not know is I inherited my mother’s cute little newsy nose, thank you very much.



It’s high school reunion time, and everyone’s coming back to Fairview—everyone who’s not already there, mind you. What went wrong, who’s fault it was, and why the heck nobody knew about me… it’s all coming out.



Long-distance relationships rarely last, and a lot of water has passed under that bridge. Big Secrets will be exposed, and in the end we’ll know if that old saying is true: Love is stronger than time.

Changing Forever


Title: Changing Forever (Rain 2, can be read as a stand alone)
Author: Lisa De Jong
Age Group: NA
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Mae I Design



Blurb:
I’ve always let my past dictate my future, letting it paint a picture of exactly what I don’t want to be. Where I don’t want to end up.

Drake Chambers is as arrogant as I am stubborn. A college quarterback, a national star. I thought he was just another one of those guys … the type every girl should stay away from, but he’s carrying more than the weight of the football team on his shoulders.

He unravels the feelings and beliefs I’ve held onto for so long.

I thought we had it all figured out. Two people who’d finally found their happily ever after, but the past always has a way of sneaking into the present.

With one decision, everything changes … forever.

VOTE #FORD!

Hi! My name is Nicole and I run Book Addicts Not So Anonymous!  I’m representing Ford Aston from JA Huss Taut. 

VOTE FORD HERE

I’m not really good at putting my thoughts into words BUT for FORD I have to try.  You may know him from the Rook and Ronin series but Taut is where we really get into his head, and oh what an interesting head it is.  Let’s finish this tourney on top, because Ford likes to be on top and he's good at getting what he wants."
Ford has been referred to as a “Kinky sex god” and  feels as comfortable in a suit as he does in blue jeans.
So what do Kinky Sex Gods look like?




Brown hair, light brown eyes just the right amount a scruff to give you a little tickle when his head is giving you insurmountable amounts of pleasure. And hey if the pleasure isn’t enough to keep you sticking around his body? Oh my his body is toned in all the right places and his arms make you feel so secure you never want to leave their shelter. The intensity of those light brown eyes can set your body on fire within seconds leaving your panties wet and ready.
“I’m hurting you right now. And it feels good. Because you’ve been hurting me since the day we met. You’re selfish. You take. That’s all you do—take. You’re a Taker, Rook. And I’ve got nothing left to give you. You took it all.”



When it comes to getting to the heart of WHO Ford really is, you have to really dig deep.
“Sphere of privacy, people.”
Ford isn’t your warm and cozy boy next door. He can come off as cold and calculating but he as loyal as they come and a soft heart for those who manage to get past his defenses.  While he maybe kinky and has left behind a trail of “pets” he wants what we all want LOVE. He's confident, has swagger, usually only half grins because he can't be bothered to exert the energy for a full smile when people usually aren't that funny.
“I’m not defective. I want to be touched. I’ve denied myself this most basic of human comforts my whole life and I’m ready to move on.”



As he is described he is known for many things “Being an emotionless, messed up bastard, a freakishly smart social outcast, and a cold, domineering master who keeps "pets" instead of girlfriends.”
“Do I want her to know me like this? Do I want her to know that I’m a freak, in the strictest definition of the word? Is this what intimacy entails? Baring your weaknesses to someone who might take advantage, but trusting them not to?”
A fellow Ford lover says
“I picture Ford tall & strong. & I know smart isn't physical but you can tell that he's brilliant just by the way he carries himself & the way he observes a room. He's cynical because being smarter than everyone is exhausting. He cares deeply for those in his circle, but he struggles to emote that.”
So why should you vote for Ford?  Because he isn’t your stereotypical book boyfriend, he colors outside of the lines (not really because that would drive him nuts), because if he can drive you crazy with a look just imagine what he could do with a touch.  But also because once you are his he will move heaven and earth to keep you happy and safe and he will cherish every single moment with his family because they come first.

Synopsis
“Secrets keep the darkness alive,” Harper tells me. But that’s not how I see it at all. Secrets keep me alive. The truth is overrated. Honesty is never the best policy. And everything you know absolutely can hurt you. The contracts I fulfill are just agreements. Death is a business deal. Secrets are currency in my world. I pay my debts with them. I feed on them. They ground me in the present and they promise me a future. I’ve lived a life filled with secrets for so long—I forgot what it’s like to… feel. Until I saw Harper. Until I saw how beautiful she’s become. How perfect, and pure, and innocent of all the ugly that goes on around her. And that dirty promise I refused the night her father turned me into a killer twelve years ago is suddenly on the table again. Harper can be mine. No—Harper will be mine. All I have to do is complete the mission. Death is a business deal. And I just shook his hand.

EXCERPT


I lay on my side, panting heavily, and trying to manage the pain as he strides to me. Petrov mutters a curse and kicks me in the ribs.
“I ought to gut you like the pig you are,” he says, pulling the razor from his face. He throws it at me, and it plunges in my hip.
“Fuck,” I growl. My leg throbs. If I don’t get help soon, I’ll bleed out. That is, unless Petrov decides to shoot me once in the heart and three times in the back of the head. It’s his signature. Then again, that might work against him.
“Do it,” I taunt. “Show the world who killed me.”
He shakes his head. “You can bleed. No one will come for you, or me.” Then he stalks out of my bookstore, leaving me lying on the floor.
I yank the razor from my thigh and yell out another curse. Damn Petrov’s family, my family, and the fucking Bratva.
Waves of darkness wash over me, and I pass out.
In what seems like seconds later, I wake up, gasping for air. I blame my comfortable life here for passing out. In the past, two gunshot wounds wouldn’t have stopped me, and Petrov would have never left my store on his own two legs.
The bells ring again. “Come to finish me off, you bastard?”
“Roman? Is that you?” a familiar voice asks. “I left my coat.”
“Everly,” I croak.
Suddenly, she’s by my side, her fingers on my face. At least I won’t die before knowing how soft her skin is, or how tenderly she strokes me.
 “Oh my God. Who shot you?” she cries, shifting to cradle my head in her lap. I hear a thunk. “Let me call 9-1-1.”
“Your dress,” I manage to say.
“Don’t worry about the blood—you’re more important.”
I smile against the pain. “No. Tear it into strips. I might need a tourniquet. He shot me in the leg… and shoulder.” I cough, air rattling in my chest.
I hear fabric tearing even as she gives information to the emergency services worker. The phone drops to the floor, narrowly missing my head.
“Where should I tie it?” she asks. As she leans over me like this, her breasts are directly above me. God, I’m dying, yet the thought of kissing her there is driving me mad. Or maybe it’s a sign I won’t die. She presses down on my wound and I groan, forgetting all about her delectable breasts.
Immediately, the pain lessons. “Sorry, sorry. In the movies and books, they always try to stop the bleeding like this,” she whimpers
“Cut my trouser open and help elevate my leg.”
“At the same time?” she asks, voice trembling as she sits back. Once again, her hands go to my face, stroking my cheek. She leans over me. This close, I can see the fullness of her lips, the smoothness of her skin, and the concern in her gaze.
“No, love. Check the wounds to see if the bullet went all the way through or not.”
“O—okay.” Gingerly, she moves away from me, careful to place my head on the hardwood floor. I watch as she grabs a pair of scissors from her purse. “I knew these would come in handy one day.”
Quickly, she cuts my pant leg off. In the background, I’m dimly aware the emergency operator is still on the line. “Well?”
“I can’t… Oh God, Roman, I have to pick up your leg to see.”
“Don’t move him,” the operator shouts.
Everly’s gaze flies to mine. She licks her lips, clearly torn between a professional and me, the reserved shopkeeper. “What do you want me to do?” she asks softly.
“Check, please, I’ll help you.” Gritting my teeth, I lift my leg and break out into a cold sweat. “Hurry, darling.”
“There’s a hole in the back, but it’s small,” she says, and I prop my foot on the shelf in front of me.
“Good, now help me up.”
Sirens blare.
Everly looks over her shoulder. “They’re here. Thank God. They’re here, Roman.”
“Thank you,” I breathe, letting the darkness take me once more. Even if I never wake up again, this heaven I’m experiencing right now is worth it.

Going The Distance Cover reveal

Synopsis
Life has been a roller coaster for Gabriel ‘The Saint’ Vega. From surviving a hellish childhood, to reuniting with his lost brother, only to hit the struggle of helping him battle his drug addiction. Boxing saved Gabriel’s life, and just when his career hits the fast track, he finally finds love with Salem; at least for a short time. 

Social differences, obligations, and misguided good intentions tore Gabriel and Salem apart before they could ever really get started.

Will Gabriel be able to save his brother from the whirlpool of addiction that threatens to drag him under? Is Salem capable of breaking away from the ropes that bind her to doing what’s expected rather than what and whom she desires? Can Gabriel convince Salem that their mutual feelings are worth fighting for, and that together, they will be able to go the distance?
