Dragons’ Mate

be297-dragons2bmate_finalcoverDragons’ Mate

By Beverly Ovalle

Published: Boroughs Publishing Group

They had been searching for their mate, but when they find her she is traumatized and scared to be around strange men. They must get her to accept them before they reveal their true natures. Will their love be strong enough to break down her barriers? Could she truly be destined to love two dragons?

Today Annie’s dragons will shift and fulfill her every desire, which means a fiery threesome—and true love.

Excerpt:

They slowly stared her down, gold and green eyes unblinking. Grrr, dragons. Sometimes she could tell they thought they were boss.

Tine suddenly leapt up and licked her from head to toe. Ew. Brand followed suit and licked her too, evidently not to be outdone. Ugh. Now she was wet and sticky all over. Glaring at them, she stripped and dove into the pond. The sensation was decadent, the movement of the warm water caressing her hypersensitive body. Then the water swirled behind her and she recognized the dragons had followed her in.

“Get out!” she cried, surfacing. She did not want to share. The boys were the reason she needed to rinse off in the first place.

Of course they didn’t listen; they loved to play like this. Brand came up beneath her, positioning himself so that Annie was straddling his snout, and he lifted her up out of the water atop his head. After the dream she’d had, her flesh was tingling and reactive, and she had a flash of panic. That supple dragonskin kindled heat better left unexplored, and she was just about to dismount when Tine leapt up and nudged her forward, tumbling her off and dumping her headfirst into the water. From the noises, she swore both dragons were laughing. Then she thought she heard, It is time.

Noble Deception ~ Veronica Bale

A Noble Deception_tent-2A Noble Deception

 

Blurb

 

Forced to wed a landless knight in order to protect her home, Moira MacInnes intends an annulment of her marriage to the arrogant Lachlan Ramsay as soon as possible. Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan.

THE ONLY THING MORE DANGEROUS THAN A LIE IS LOVE.

Scotland 1455 – The Douglas clan is at war with their king. To protect his lands from confiscation, Lord John Douglas, the dying Earl of Kildrummond, must find an heir that doesn’t carry his name.

A landless knight, Lachlan Ramsay expects no more of life than battles, blood, and the occasional warm bosom. But when Lord John makes him his heir, Lachlan has a chance at something he never dreamt of—a home. There’s just one condition: He must marry the earl’s bastard daughter, the fiery, eccentric Moira MacInnes.

Lachlan has no desire for a headstrong, sharp-tongued wife. Moira has no need for an arrogant, too-handsome husband. To save Kildrummond they will marry and seek an annulment immediately upon the earl’s death. But deception is never simple, and passion once inflamed is impossible to ignore. Soon they will no longer be deceiving the earl but themselves.

 

Excerpt

 

Bundled against the icy wind, Moira pushed her mare onward through the deteriorating weather. That morning, she had set her mind on making it to Glendalough by mid-afternoon (Highland wind be damned). She wanted to leave well before the evening meal to avoid being guilted into staying.

Except now, she was starting to regret her zeal; her new priority was to simply reach the castle’s walls before dark.

One way or another, she would confront Viscount Strathcairn. After a considerable amount of thought, she’d made up her mind.

She would accept his proposal—sweet heaven above, she couldn’t even think the words without gritting her teeth!

As much as she detested the arrangement, for however brief a time it may be, she had to concede that it was logical. As long as he was willing to uphold his end of the bargain and have the marriage annulled when the time came—and Moira had no choice but to trust that he would—then she would agree.

And why wouldn’t he make good on his promise? A man like Lachlan Ramsay wouldn’t want a plain, simple lass like Moira for a wife under more natural circumstances. Any more than Moira would want a vain, over-confident, self-important brute like him.

Vain he certainly was!

Well, he probably was, at any rate. All men that good looking were.

Wish Upon a Waltz ~ Alanna Lucas

WishUponAWaltz_coverQuiet lady’s companion Anastasia Quintin understands her place in society and wishes for no more than the life she has undertaken…until a fateful house party for the Earl of Huntingdon gives her one night, one dance, one chance at all of her discarded hopes and dreams.  

ONE NIGHT, ONE DANCE, ONE CHANCE

At twenty-five, Anastasia Quintin has resigned herself to live in quiet seclusion as companion to Miss Albryght, but one lost wager by her headstrong bookworm of a mistress soon requires Anastasia’s return to the society from which she hides. Her first event in eight years is to be a house party in honor of the recently entitled Earl of Huntingdon, hosted by his haughty old grandmother.

Having come to his title by tragedy, the handsome Huntingdon is new to the ton, but he is not new to Anastasia. Dante St. Clair is the very man who long ago stole her heart and thereafter dashed all her hopes and dreams. He is the man she must never let discover her identity, but whom she can no more avoid than a moth can a flame. One waltz will destroy her, and for it, Anastasia will risk everything…and win.

EXCERPT

This was insane. She was insane.

She shouldn’t be here. What did she hope to achieve by dressing up and attending the masquerade? One night to be free. One night to pretend.

It had been so long since she gave into such diversions. Perhaps one night was possible. One night to lose herself in everything that she had wanted and could not have. She leaned over the marble balustrade and watched the dancing couples below. Fanciful plumes glided over elegant ladies. Pinks, blues, and greens mingled in the sea of costumes. An intoxicated black and white domino whisked through the crowd bumping into several ladies, causing a ruckus. A beautiful young woman clad all in white waltzed through the vibrant colors, reminding Anastasia of sea foam brushing the shore.

“Oh, how I wish I could have had just one more dance with him,” she murmured under her breath. “I know we could have been happy together.”

Anastasia blinked away the tears. She had the rest of her life to dwell on what could have been, what she hoped her future would have been like. Tonight was for giving into her folly, her desire, one night to forget the past and live in the present.

Before she changed her mind, Anastasia pushed away from the banister and hurried toward the grand ballroom. At any moment, she suspected the guards would interrupt her flight of fancy and take her away to Bedlam.

A lively tune greeted her as she neared the ballroom. There was a lightness in her step and a sway in her soul. Anastasia could not remember the last time she danced.

An image flashed through her mind of a young couple waltzing endlessly through a shady copse. Laughter filled the air followed by a sweet first kiss. Despite everything that had happened, she longed for his kiss and the way he made her insides flutter.

So lost in her own musings, Anastasia had not realized that the music had stopped, nor that all eyes were upon her. Thankful for the mask that hid her features, she glided down the steps into the warm room hoping to disappear without further attention into the sea of costumes.

Lavender, lilac, rose, vanilla, and several other unknown odors assaulted her senses. She edged her way from the crowded area, hoping to find a quiet spot to recover whenout of the corner of her eye, she saw Lady Huntingdon push her way through the crush of people.

Anastasia’s first thought was to run. Lady Huntingdon could not discover that she and Isabel had switched places. The excited butterflies had turned into treacherous locusts threatening to destroy her. She had to leave. Anastasia turned, and bumped into a man dressed all in black, including his mask which covered most of his face. Warm brown eyes glistened in the candlelight, inviting her into his world.

“May I have this dance?”

Anastasia’s mouth went dry. She knew that voice. The heartache that had been lingering for years burst into flames.

Interview with L. P. Maxa ~ Play Nice

FullSizeRenderBeverly and Tamara: Welcome to SSLY. Thanks so much for joining us today. So first why don’t you tell us a little about yourself? A little about me…I have a three year old little girl and I’ve been married for about 6 years now. My husband and I are starting the adoption process to add to our family, so that’s exciting and terrifying at the same time. We bought an old house in Georgetown, TX two years ago and have been slowly remodeling the whole thing. I work as a dental assistant when I’m not writing, I’ve been doing that for about 8 years.

Tamara: What do you HAVE to have when you are writing?  A clean work space! I can’t write when I’m surrounded by mess and clutter. Wine helps too, especially when I’m trying to write those extra racy scenes.

Beverly: When did you start to write and who influenced you? I’ve loved to read my whole life. I was always reading something. I excelled in English all through high school and college. But my senior year of high school I wrote this paper after reading the novel Ishmael by Daniel Quinn. My teacher loved my paper and told me I was a really good writer, that’s something that’s always stuck with me.

Tamara: What do you think are the qualities that make up a “hero”? All my heroes, or all my leading men, are kind and brave and selfless. Selfless is big, I think. I LOVE a bad boy that’s a good man type of hero.

Beverly: Can you describe your favorite character?   And which of your books is he/she in? How do you come up with your characters? My all-time fav character that I’ve written is actually from my novel Never Ever that’s self-published on Kindle. His name is Taylor Hill and he is sarcastic and sexy and witty. I really enjoy writing his character. Some of my characters are based on people I actually know like Amy in Play Nice or Brice in Happy Place. Some are a mix of people like Allie in Never Ever. And then the rest are made up.

Tamara: What are the hardest scenes for you to write? Suspense? Sex? Dialogue? And why? Sex scenes can give me trouble every now and then. I feel like I really have to be in the right frame of mind to write those. I’m sure, as women, y’all get what I’m saying. Some days you just don’t feel sexual 😉 I actually really love writing the dialogue, it’s my favorite part.

Beverly: What is your favorite scene in your favorite book? There is an adorable moment between Dash and Lexi in Play Nice. It’s in the beginning where she tells him to woo her. Right off the top of my head, that’s my favorite so far.

Tamara: What is your dream vacation? I would love to visit Ireland one day. I am a terrible flier, like the worst. But I’m also a sucker for an Irish accent. My husband lived in Ireland for a few years, so I’d love for him to take me and show me around.

Beverly: What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done?  Or would like to? What?  We are all about the love! Fine! If you don’t like that question what was your worst date ever? I can do kinky. I had a huge crush on this guy in college, he was HOT and CUT. Anyway we were at this party one night and we snuck off and had sex with the party going on like 20 feet away. He held me up against a brick wall. It was ah-mazing. My friends and I refer to him as brick wall dude to this day (because of the actual wall and because he was built like one). Is that kinky? I guess that would have been a more appropriate answer to the question of the weirdest place you’ve had sex…PS- don’t tell my husband that story.

Tamara: LOL. We’ll try to keep that quiet! What are your favorite types of heroines? Do you like the damsel in distress who needs saving or the kick-ass variety? Why? Kick-ass variety for sure! I’m not great a writing the damsel, because I don’t love reading about the damsel. I need a girl with some spunk.

Beverly: How many books have you published? What genres? What drew you to that genre? I have 5 books self-published on Kindle. And then The Devil’s Share series will be four books published through Borough’s. I like light hearted romance novels. They are fun to write and fun to read. I’m currently working with a friend on something a little more tragic and emotional.

Tamara: If you could spend the day with any person from history, real or fictional. Who would you choose and why? Oh wow. Good question…I’d kind of like to meet Edgar Allen Poe. I was super into his work when I was younger. Or maybe Doc Hollywood. He seems like a good time.

Beverly: What is your “guilty pleasure”? Reading. I also really love wine and trash TV. I convinced my husband I have to watch teenage drama shows as research. That way he doesn’t give me crap for it anymore.

Beverly: We’ll really try to keep this from him, LOL. Don’t want him knowing that either!

Tamara: What dream or goal have you yet to realize? Getting published was a huge dream of mine. But, I’d really like to have one of my books made into a movie. Mostly so maybe I can cast Charlie Hunam in a role.

Beverly: What was your most embarrassing moment or the craziest thing you’ve done? C’mon dish! The brick wall was pretty crazy. Uh…okay, here’s an embarrassing moment. It was like my 22nd birthday? And my friends and I went out to this bar in Rockport. We drank Kamikazes all night long. On the way home we drove thru What-a-burger and I had to get out of the car to throw up. I just went over to the grass and threw up everything I’d drank right in front of all these strangers. Not my finest moment.

Tamara: What song are you? I would love to think I was Into the Mystic by Van Morrison, because that song calms my soul. Or maybe Little Red Wagon by Miranda Lambert, because it’s sassy.

Beverly: How do you know you’re in love? Is it a physical reaction, an emotional reaction or both? I think knowing you’re in love changes as we get older. When I was in high school it was such a high, such a new experience. In college…I don’t think I was ever actually in love in college. I think I was in a lot of lust. But then when I met my husband it was a calm type of feeling. Like I met him, and I kind of went “Oh, there you are. I’ve been looking for you.” And now I feel like being in love is choosing that person, over and over again. No matter how irritated I am at my husband, there is a point every day when he does something that makes me fall for him all over again.

Tamara and Beverly: Okay. We are SSLY so I have to ask. Who loves you? Who loves me? My family, friends, hopefully some of my readers are fond of me. My dogs are really into me, but I think my cat and my fish could care less.

Now for some quick fun questions:

Boxers or briefs? Boxer brief

Coffee or Tea? Tea!

Tall, dark and handsome or Blond and buff? Tall, dark, and handsome. And buff.

Hairy chest or smooth? Smooth

Chocolate or Vanilla? Vanilla

Kinky or Sweet? Hahaha, depends on how much wine I’ve had that night

Fast or slow? Again, depends on the wine.

Public or private? Married? Private. Back in the day…

Top or bottom? Top

Well, it’s been a lot of fun getting to know you Leigh. Now, let’s see what you’ve been recently working on.

L.P. MAXA

Book One of The Devil’s Share

Keynote: Rock a stadium. Bang a chick. Repeat. AS lead singer of The Devil’s Share, Dash could get anything or anyone he wanted—until he met Lexi Grant.

Blurb

MONEY. FAME. WHISKEY. SEX.

For Dash Conner, lead singer of The Devil’s Share, everything he wanted was his for the asking. Whiskey. Drugs. Money. Sex. But not Lexi Grant. For the first time since he picked up a guitar, a girl was actually demanding he woo her. And for a chance with this one, Dash would do that and more.

Lexi Grant was no groupie. Just because the biggest rock star in the world smiled at her didn’t mean she had to fall into bed with him—but it was going to be awfully hard to resist that impish smile and those tatted abs. Surely one night of fun wouldn’t hurt anyone.

Unless that night ended with a broken condom.

For Lexi and Dash that’s just the beginning. Add in an overly affectionate pit bull, a missing guitarist, a house full of sorority girls, a junkie ex-bandmate and an extreme aversion to Jager, and it’s either a recipe for disaster or true love.

Interview with Nancy Sartor ~ Bones Along the Hill

NancySartorTheRightPictureNancy Sartor

Beverly and Tamara: Welcome to SSLY. Thanks so much for joining us today. So first why don’t you tell us a little about yourself?

Thank you ladies. I so appreciate your having me today. I am a Nashville-born writer, still live within twelve miles of that city. My husband is a nationally-known composer of classical music, so creative endeavors take top spot in our daily schedules.

I began my romantic suspense BONES ALONG THE HILL after the heroine whispered in my ear, “Hi, my name is Neva and I fix the faces of the dead.” Cool way to meet a character. It left only about 80,000 words to be developed. BONES debuted in November of 2014 and has been well reviewed and well received.

I am currently working on a paranormal romance set in Rugby, Tennessee. Title is BLESSED CURSE.

Tamara: What do you HAVE to have when you are writing?

Silence. My nest is in the den. I curl up in my recliner with my laptop and, depending on the time of day, a cup of coffee or a glass of water. Usually, one or both of my Maine Coon cats are on the chair arm or sitting on my shoulder, but they learned long ago not to walk on the computer.

Beverly: When did you start to write and who influenced you?

My mother was an avid reader who passed the love of reading to me. She wrote an incredible fantasy about a dwarf who lived in a hollow tree. She wrote it with a co-worker. They each swore never to publish it, that it was only for their children. I don’t remember the first thing I wrote. At fourteen, I was a finalist in a Belmont College literary contest but did not win.

Tamara: What do you think are the qualities that make up a “hero”?

Heroes come in many sizes and shapes, but all of them have something to overcome, something to prove, something to correct. They’re inhibited by a past experience or a mental or physical challenge. They’re seeking something they lost or trying to rid themselves of something they’ve acquired but don’t want. They break through when it’s needed, have compassion where it’s called for, kick ass when they must and in general leave the story world in better shape than when they found it.

Beverly: Can you describe your favorite character?   And which of your books is he/she in? How do you come up with your characters?

Claudia Yates is my favorite character from BONES. She’s older but still powerful, wise but still learning, effective and yet vulnerable in all the right ways.

I spend months learning my characters. Neva Oakley from BONES and Jorie Wainright from CURSE came to me. Cool. But a novel is never about only one character. Like the 80,000 remaining words after Neva spoke, I only needed ten or so more characters after these ladies arrived. Those ten or so characters per book were laboriously created one molecule at a time and then adjusted, honed, changed and developed over several months.

Tamara: What are the hardest scenes for you to write? Suspense? Sex? Dialogue? And why?

Suspense. I tend to either reveal what’s coming too quickly or have my character’s reaction be pretty much, “oh, wow, that was awful.” In rewrite, I spend most of my time tightening the suspense, ratcheting the horror to scream level and making my characters skitter along the ragged edge of hysteria.

Beverly: What is your favorite scene in your favorite book?

The battle between Neva and her adversary from BONES.

Tamara: What is your dream vacation?

Dave and I often take dream vacations because we’ve budgeted for them over time. We’ve been to Hawaii, cruised the Mediterranean, toured the Caribbean, visited Canada and toured most of the continental United States. One of our favorite vacation locations is St. Martin Island where we essentially sit on the beach, bob in the ocean and eat at fantastic restaurants. But we have never been to Ireland, and for an auburn-haired daughter of the Auld Sod, nothing could be dreamier than to walk the Emerald Isle.

Beverly: What is the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done?  Or would like to? What? We are all about the love! Fine! If you don’t like that question what was your worst date ever?

Actually, I recommend this to any wife and have done it more than once. Just be aware that timing is everything here if you intend to actually eat your dinner. Dress where he can’t see you. Wear something ultra sexy, leaving off either all underwear or in the case of bra necessity, your panties. Wait until you are at the restaurant and (this is essential) have ordered your dinner. Lean across the table and whisper to him that you have on no underwear. If you get home before things are out of control, I will be surprised.

Tamara: LOL. Love that! What are your favorite types of heroines? Do you like the damsel in distress who needs saving or the kick-ass variety? Why?

I like balance. I enjoy kick-ass heroines, but find them often thinly drawn and possessed of magical powers that allow them to do things not possible in nature. I’m fonder of the damaged heroine who finds her power as the story goes along. My heroes do sometimes save my heroines but my heroines return the favor in spades. As I said, I like balance.

Beverly: How many books have you published? What genres? What drew you to that genre?

I’ve published two. The first was e-published years before e-publishing was cool and is no longer available. BONES is the second. The first was paranormal which I wrote because I love the genre. BONES is a suspense because if done well, suspense grabs the reader by the throat and won’t let go until the last page.

Tamara: If you could spend the day with any person from history, real or fictional. Who would you choose and why?

Aristotle or Plato from ancient Greece because I would like to know how that enclave of culture came to be in the midst of what was generally a barbarous world.

Beverly: What is your “guilty pleasure”?

Sonic’s diet cherry limeade with extra diet cherry.

Tamara: What dream or goal have you yet to realize?

Haven’t hit the NY Times best seller list yet.

Beverly: What was your most embarrassing moment or the craziest thing you’ve done? C’mon dish!

Years ago, I approached the bus stop in downtown Nashville wearing a dress with a gored skirt. I had panty hose beneath the skirt and saw no reason to also wear panties. The wind caught that skirt just right, raised it to waist height, featuring my nearly bare bottom et al. When I finally managed to batter it down, I found eight men staring at me in various stages of lust.

Tamara: What song are you?

MY WAY

Beverly: LOL. How do you know you’re in love? Is it a physical reaction, an emotional reaction or both? 

I’ve been “in love” three times in my life. The first two made my palms sweat and my heart hurt. The third was a gentle realization. The first two times, I fell into love. The third, I climbed into love. The third began with like, then admiration. Trust followed, then desire and finally love. That love has deepened over the past 31 years into something special on the face of the earth. I think you know you’re in love when you can enumerate the reasons why and few of them are followed by “but.”

Tamara and Beverly: Okay. We are SSLY so I have to ask. Who loves you?

I am well loved by my family and friends, but the love that forms the beat of my heart comes from my husband. He is my greatest fan, my best friend, my forever supporter. He sees no fault in me most of the time and is forgiving when he does. He gives me as much room as I want to be who I am. He is my running buddy, my sports buddy, my creative partner.

Now for some quick fun questions:

Boxers or briefs? Briefs. The less cloth the better.

Coffee or Tea? Coffee.

Tall, dark and handsome or Blond and buff? Blond and buff.

Hairy chest or smooth? Hairy

Chocolate or Vanilla? Surely you jest. Chocolate.

Kinky or Sweet? Sweet with a good dose of kinky.

Fast or slow? Slow

Public or private? Private

Top or bottom? Bottom

Check out Bones Along the Hill

Bones Along the Hill_covertheone

A decade-old mystery, a power-mad enemy and his human-trafficking ring stand in the way of the hopes and dreams of funeral home facial restorationist Neva Oakley.

TO THE BONE

Neva Oakley is a funeral facial restorationist with a legendary skill at making the dead look alive. But for all her talent, she can never bring back Gray Ledbetter, her first love,who took his own life ten years ago.

Davis Pratt, too, is consumed. Long ago his younger brother disappeared, and Davis won’t give up hope. Perhaps that’s why he and Neva are such a good couple. Or perhaps that’s why they can’t move forward. Then the search leads them to the Oakley cemetery and a murder tied to a human trafficking ring. Suddenly, impossible crimes threaten both family and friends, crimes that cannot be ignored. Not even the Nashville PD can keep Neva safe, but if she and Davis succeed, together they just might solve all their mysteries and free each other to embrace their future.
