She’s in love with her father’s best friend… 

Kate Crawford’s always had a scorching attraction to her father’s best friend, sexy hotelier Graham Davenport. Now she’s going to study in Europe, but she wants to realize her secret wish and lose her virginity to Graham. After all, she’s not a teenager anymore and ready for some Adult X-rated fun.

Graham Davenport hires Kate as his trainee in his luxury hotel as a favor to her father, but seeing her flaunt her hot body is driving him insane and he’s about to lose his self-control. He doesn’t want to betray the man who helped him turn around his life, but this woman is no longer a teenager with a crush. And her desire unleashes secret passions and fantasies that neither of them can deny…



1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi! I’m Carmen. I’m a mom, wife, daughter and a friend. I’m also an avid romance reader. I’m addicted to dogs—I have three crazy pugs. I love going to the movies, power walking, traveling, meeting friends for lunch. I skydive once a year. Okay, that was a lie. I said that so my life would sound more exciting. LOL.

2. What inspired you to write your first book?
I was a teenager and that book will never see the light of day, LOL. But I think what made me want to write then is the same reason that makes me want to write now—simply because I can’t imagine myself not doing it.

3. Describe your main character in five words.
Kate Crawford is determined, smart, flirty, fun, relatable.

4. Have you ever done anything strange or weird in the name of research?
All the time. I write romantic suspense as well, so sometimes I have to watch out for what I have on my DVR list if we have sitters over!

5. How long does it take you to write a book?
It depends. Every book is different, and I’m never really just writing a book. I’m also promoting other books, emailing editors, revising another project. Oh, and Facebook. I love Facebook. But I’d say the first draft of a category length book takes between four and six weeks.

6. Can you share a little of your current work with us?
Of course. I’m editing Forbidden Inmate, a book about a male prison counselor who gets involved with an inmate in a women’s prison. Think an erotic Orange is the New Black. It’s actually available for pre-order on Amazon.

7. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
It sounds cheesy, but thanks for supporting me in my journey. I really appreciate the feedback, the reviews, and the friendship. It feels great to know I’m not alone.

Random Questions:

What’s in your fridge right now?
A bunch of fruit, organic meat and yummy ice cream.

What song do you sing at the top of your voice every time you hear it?
I love music but I generally listen to whatever’s on the radio. I like pop, jazz, some rock, oldies. I’ve been known to sing to a lot of Taylor Swift songs especially while driving (don’t judge).

Where did you last go on holiday?
I visited my family in Brazil. That’s where I go every summer.

If feral aliens attacked your house and they were zapping your home with their Über super bombs, what five items would you save?
My laptop, my passport, my camera, family albums and a keepsake box with my children’s stuff. (I’m assuming my hubby, kids and dogs would be waiting for me outside).

 Available on Amazon 

Carmen Falcone learned at an early age that fantasizing about fictional characters beat doing math homework any day. Brazilian by birth and traveler by nature, she moved to Central Texas after college and met her broody Swiss husband--living proof that opposites attract. She found in writing her deepest passion and the best excuse to avoid the healthy lifestyle everyone keeps talking about. When she's not lost in the world of romance, she enjoys spending time with her two kids, being walked by her three crazy pugs, reading, catching up with friends, and chatting with random people in the checkout line. 

She loves to procrastinate, so please indulge her and drop her a line. For more info, visit her website: http://www.carmenfalcone.com

The Fairytale Chicago of Francesca Finnegan

About the Book

ftalechicago-cover-imageTitle: The Fairytale Chicago of Francesca Finnegan
Author: Steve Wiley
Genre: Fantasy
“Did you know most anything that matters in this city was built by magic before it was built by men? Of course you didn’t. This city is different from other cities. The true history of it is unpublished. Lucky for you, I know it all by heart.”
~ Francesca Finnegan
In Chicago, a secret L train runs through the mythical East Side of the city. On that train, you’ll find a house-cat conductor, an alcoholic elf, a queen of the last city farm, the most curious wind, and an exceptional girl by the name of Francesca Finnegan.
When we first encounter Richard K. Lyons, he is a man who has long forgotten the one night, when he was still a boy called Rich, when Francesca invited him aboard the secret L for an adventure though the East Side. The night was a mad epic, complete with gravity-defying first kisses, mermaid overdoses, and princess rescues. Unfortunately for Rich, the night ended like one of those elusive dreams forgotten the moment you wake. Now, Rich is all grown up and out of childish adventures, an adult whose life is on the verge of ruin. It will take the rediscovery of his exploits with Francesca, and a reacquaintance with the boy he once was, to save him.

Karen Stivali - Moment of Fate & Giveaway

Bryan Dane’s been living the dream—photography student by day, up-and-coming rocker by night. His summer goals are to earn his last few credits, graduate from NYU, spend as much time in the recording studio as possible, and survive the next few months without sex so he can complete his yearlong goal of self-imposed celibacy. Everything is on track, until he meets Oliver Newcastle.
For years Oliver planned a marriage of convenience with his high school BFF, but now that she’s fallen in love for real, with someone else, it’s no longer convenient. So Oliver came out to his family, quit his job, and left small-town New England for NYC, an intensive summer study program, and a chance to find his own happiness.
From the moment they meet the sexual tension between Bryan and Oliver sizzles. But Bryan wants no part of a relationship, and Oliver wants to sew his wild oats—he just isn’t sure how. Oliver seeks Bryan’s help navigating the NYC gay scene, which throws them together in increasingly more sexual situations until they can no longer deny they're hot for each other. Bryan is desperate to keep things simple, but fate might have other plans.

Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out. I know. I’ve been doing it for years. I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I’ve got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary. And Marlon James – Grip to his fans – is nothing short of extraordinary.

He’s on the verge of unimaginable fame, all his dreams poised to come true. I manage his career, but I can’t seem to manage my heart. It’s wild, reckless, disobedient. And it remembers all the things I want to forget.

It's been nine years since I last saw Dante Santiago. I always had the biggest crush on Dante. That wasn't easy either. He was always around, being that our families were so close. Dante was always the sweetest, most handsome guy I've ever seen. I was hoping to outgrow this childhood crush, but I've never stopped thinking about him. I'd hope that when I came home and saw him for the first time, those feelings would be done, or at least diminished, but no such luck. He is even more handsome than I remember. He was a fifteen year old boy when I left. Now he's a man, and hot as hell!

Demi Mitchell is, my best friend, Madoc's little cousin. Her father is Digger, the President of the motorcycle club we belong to, so I've known Demi her whole life, and I've always considered her family. I've missed her so much since she left for school. Now she stands before me, all grown up ... gorgeous.  And God help me , the last thing I want to think of her as is family. If Digger even suspected the thoughts I am having about his little girl, he would kill me, along with her brother, Drew, another one of the clubs senior officers. Not to mention her Uncle Frank, the Vice President, and of course Madoc. Hell, my own father wouldn't be too happy with me, either. But I can't stop thinking about her.

Can Demi and Dante fight the feelings they have for each other? Or will they defy their families and the MC to be together?

About the Author

I have always wanted to entertain people. To be a part of something that made people laugh or cry or just escape for a while, whether it was through television, film, or books. Three years ago I started writing a story during NANOWRIMO to get out of my own head. I feel in love with the characters and decided to turn that story into a novel for some friends who enjoyed my fan fiction in the past. Then one day I was friended by an editor who encouraged me to share my novel with others.

Darkness Surrounds (Part Two Living A Lie Series) by M.L. Kacy



M.L. Kacy




Feb 25th  









Darkness surrounds me, a dreary, cold, place with no escape.

Feeling lost, alone and confused I’m sucked deep into my own mind.

A place I soon became comfortable in, a place where I can hide.

The darkness becomes my respite, my shelter.

A buffer from the devastation of my own broken dreams.

Trapped in my own mind I search in circles for
answers.

Surviving but not living, my heart bleeding and broken from my loss.

Torn up by guilt, thoughts of being punished for some perceived fault.

Confusion and turmoil become my only companions.

I need to start living again they tell me - but could I?

Do I have the strength to crawl my way out of my own mind?

Then again, do I really want to?

If I do escape the void will I still be me and if not, can I accept the person I’ve become?

Follow my journey in part two of my Living A Lie Series.

***Disclaimer- Some of the content in this book can cause triggers for some. Also, contains profanity, erotic scenes and only suitable for readers 18+***









I have been involved in the indie community for several years and have always loved how everyone comes together in support of each other.
I love writing and reading, living life with my family, and always coming up with new ideas and putting then in to practice.

Words have a way of healing someone, so I will carry on writing, included events that have happened and taking you all on a journey with me.
