Title: Beefcakes
Author: Katana Collins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 24, 2020

 

Blurb
I might as well permanently add the label “Ex” to my name. I’m
an Ex-Mr. Universe. Ex-Mr. Olympus. An Ex-Hollywood Stuntman. But no one from
my small hometown cares anything about that. They only care that I’m the
ex-boyfriend to the beloved Mayor’s daughter, Elaina Dyker.
And now, ten years later, I’m back, helping my siblings run my mother’s
bakery while she takes on chemo. What should have been a routine cupcake
delivery turns into utter chaos when the bachelorette party thinks I’m a
stripper. And what’s worse? Elaina is the maid of honor.
But the meme about us sure went viral fast. My small hometown has become
positively infested with tipsy bridesmaids looking for my erotic cupcakes.
Now Hollywood’s knocking again–and this time they want me and my ex, Mr.
Beefcake, and Ms. Prude, to star in a reality show.
It could solve all my problems—except her.

How to make a Thin Mint Cocktail
with Katana Collins
Author Bio
I love coffee.
As an author and a story-teller, it is the lifeblood to which my ideas
take flight. And I believe in giving credit where credit is due. Occasionally
someone (ie – my husband) will try to secretly switch out my beloved regular
coffee for decaf. I always know the difference. ALWAYS (I’m looking at you,
SEAN).
I am incapable of achieving the perfect ponytail. I’m dyslexic. I can
never wear white without spilling on myself. And I’ve never read Pride and
Prejudice (gasp!).
When I was younger and stole my mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the
covers with a flashlight (seriously, did we ALL do this? I think we did.), I
wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl
with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but
“Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… give me the bad boy on a
motorcycle.
So, now, I write those romance novels I craved to see on the shelves all
those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. I spend my days in the
throes of my imagination and am loving every minute of it. I can travel
anywhere and become anyone I want to be. One day, I’m a mechanic in Boston and
the next, I’m a vampire stripping in Las Vegas.
Since penning my first novel back in 2012, I’m now an international
author with 15 published books, in a wide range of contemporary romance
genres–(Paranormal, New Adult, Small town, Erotic Suspense… you name it!).
After living for a decade in Brooklyn, NY, I took the plunge and moved to
beautiful (although kinda chilly) Portland, Maine. I now live full time in
‘Vacationland’ with a kind of mean cat, a mellow chihuahua, and a very NOT
mellow lab-pittie mix. Oh, yeah… there’s a husband who draws comics somewhere
in that mix, too.
I can usually be found in a coffee shop with my nose in my laptop wearing
fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.
I love connecting with readers and fellow sassy storytellers, so feel
free to drop me an email at katana.collins@gmail.com or connect with me on
Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@katanacollins). You can find a list of my
available books over on my
Bookshelf or if you’ve already
read a book, it would make my day if you wrote a review!

Dream With Me ~ Release Blitz

Dream With Me by Kristen Proby

Release Date: January 21, 2020

Dream With Me FOR WEB.jpg

Dream With Me, an all-new standalone contemporary romance in the beloved With Me In Seattle Series by New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby.

Kane O’Callaghan knows what it is to have his work shown all over the world. His pieces are on display in palaces and museums, including the O’Callaghan Museum of Glass just outside of his beloved hometown of Seattle. Kane is a bit of a recluse, spending time on his farm alone and committed to his art. His life is full.

Until the day he meets her.

Wandering through museums is Anastasia Montgomery’s favorite way to spend her time. Not only does art feed her soul, but it inspires her own art of designing wedding cakes. When her muse seems to be gone, she finds her again among the beauty in the museums of Seattle, and the O’Callaghan Museum of Glass is her favorite. She’s never met the artist, but he must be absolutely brilliant, if he can make such beautiful things out of glass.

Bumping into a grumpy stranger at the museum wasn’t in Anastasia’s plan. And then discovering it was Kane himself was absolutely humiliating.

But when she sees him again at a charity fundraiser, and ends up spending an incredible, unforgettable night with the mysterious glass smith, Anastasia finds herself thinking of Kane and little else, even her precious work. Will this relationship bloom into the romance of a lifetime, or will their dreams of success get in the way of true love?

Excerpt:

Okay, so the man has moves. It shouldn’t surprise me that someone who creates such amazing works of art can also lead a girl around the dance floor. With one palm firmly planted on my lower back, and the other clutching my hand, Kane keeps his eyes on mine.

“You’re a good dancer,” I murmur.

“You’re nervous,” he replies softly. “There’s no need to be. It’s just a dance.”

I take a deep breath and offer him a smile. He’s right. It’s just a dance.

The fact that he’s maybe the hottest man I’ve ever seen is a huge bonus.

And if he can move like this, with all of our clothes on, I can only imagine what it could be like if we were naked.

Mercy.

“I never got your name,” he says and guides me closer to him so we can talk into each other’s ears. I glance around the room, seeing my sister and the other girls smiling at us, watching us dance.

“Anastasia,” I say and turn my head, not quite planting my nose against his neck. The smell of this man is going to kill me.

And not because it triggers my asthma.

Because it’s too sexy.

I watch the pulse in his neck and enjoy the feeling of his strong arms holding me.

“That’s a lovely name.” The accent is thicker in his voice now. Irish? I’m not good with accents, but I’d bet he’s Irish.

His last name might be an indicator.

“Thank you.”

The song ends and flows into another ballad. Adele sings about finding another lover, as Kane moves against me, with me.

I wonder if it looks as sexy as it feels.

“You said yesterday,” he whispers against my ear, “that you’d be using your sketch for something else. What will that something be?”

“A cake.”

He pulls back far enough to smile down at me in surprise. “A cake, is it?”

I nod, more comfortable talking about what I do for a living than just dancing in silence.

“I design and build wedding cakes for a living. I can do them for other occasions, as well, but wedding cakes are what I’m known for.”

“Interesting.”

“I have a client who came into my shop about a month ago to hire me. They didn’t give me any direction at all. No colors, no requests. It just has to feed about two hundred guests.” I shake my head in disgust. “Not that I want them to tell me to copy a photo. I won’t do that, but usually, they have colors they like or flowers in mind. Something. Not these two. When I need inspiration, I like to look at what others have created. Or have conversations with people I enjoy.”

“That makes sense,” he says and leans in to kiss my forehead, which sends a shiver right down my spine to my lady parts—which had already sat up and taken notice of Kane.

“What was that for?” I ask.

“An apology,” he replies. “For being difficult yesterday.”

“Apology accepted.”

His lips quirk into that half-smile, his green eyes shining. The song is almost over, and I know I should thank him for the dance and find Lia and the others.

“Thanks for the dance.”

The last note plays, and I pull back, immediately wishing I was back in his arms.

He’s a stranger, and it’s crazy, but it’s true.

“Do you belong to a man, Anastasia?” Kane brushes his knuckles down the side of my cheek.

I frown. “I’ll never belong to anyone.”

“You know what I mean. Are you taken?”

“I’m single if that’s what you’re asking.”

“Good.” He kisses the back of my hand.

About Kristen:

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

From me to you

Ahhh! Saturday! My husband is outside clearing snow. We got about 6 to 8 inches last night. I’m snuggling inside with the granddaughter. Playing games and watching TV.

I’m also a chapter away from finishing Rog’s story! Book 3 of A Dragon’s Fated Heart series will be out the end of March. Once my daughter gets out of bed and takes over watching her daughter, I’ll hide away and finish it. Then read it over. Then fix any obvious issues then send it off to be beta read. Get their opinions, fix issues they found THEN send it to my editor. Who is already ready for it.

Gah. And we’ll probably find a misspelling still. When it’s done. It never fails, lol. Or a missing word. Or a word spelled right, but wrong for the context, Like in one book I read. Used the word course instead of coarse. All in the context.

Here is just a screen shot from part of it. Unedited and it clearly needs it. Hope your Saturday is wonderful.

If there’s one thing that’s a certainty in life, it’s change.

It’s taken Victor Kalinski years to settle into the kind of happiness that he thought he’d never find. The small town of Cayuga, New York, has welcomed him warmly. It’s given him a championship team to coach, a tightly-knit group of friends, a father who he has reconciled with, and a safe place to raise the son he adores. The small town has also blessed him with Dan Arou, his husband and his soulmate, and one of the most skilled forwards on the Cougars. Given Dan’s outstanding play in their recent Calder Cup win, it was inevitable that Dan’s time in the minors was about to come to an end.

When Dan is given a starting position in Boston, Victor’s serene life is thrown into complete chaos. Pride over Dan’s accomplishment fills his heart but facing a long, lonely season in Cayuga is causing no small amount of discord. Add in a wedding that will give his son a new stepfather, health issues for his dad, and Victor’s own penchant for saying things that aren’t exactly politically correct, and the impending explosion is guaranteed to blow Vic’s life to bits. Life-altering choices will have to be made. Will Victor rebound from the challenges, or will he be unable to accept the upheavals that life has dealt him?

Jesse’s only priority in life is protecting the people he loves, so he’s determined to see Rowan Harbor’s wards rebuilt. There’s just one problem: they’re missing an ingredient that can’t be ordered online.


Jesse volunteers to search for the missing component in the realm of the fae, but his boyfriend, Sean, isn’t letting him go alone. The town has an enemy among the fae, so they’ll need to keep a low profile. Along their way, they find unexpected allies, surprising enemies, and a whole host of problems.


The journey is a test of their endurance, but also of their relationship and their faith in each other. Can they find what they need and get back home in one piece in time for the summer solstice?

Sam wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.


If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.
