The Tuesday Tease

Welcome back to the Tuesday tease! BIG thank you for voting and making Celestra Forever After a winner at the utopYA awards for Best Kiss! (I promise, those of you who haven’t completed or began Celestra, the best kissers in question are not too spoilery. The ending to the final book ELYSIAN has many twists and turns. Trust me, it’s not what you think! ;)  I’m literally soooo overwhelmed and thrilled to pieces to have won and I have you to thank for this. From the deepest part of the bottom of my heart, thank you again.
I’m on vacay so I’ll keep this short and sweet! On to the teasers!

Someone For Me (Book 3 Someone to Love Series) Coming July 1st  (NEXT Tuesday!!!!!)
Cruise’s POV with Kendall (Kenny) in their bedroom.
“Whoa.” I hold up my hands for a moment. It’s almost as if, now that I’ve confined our satisfaction to the bedroom, Kenny is about to sexually combust from the pressure. It’s as if all of my irresponsible screwing has hardwired her to crave the twisted, the perverted. I’ve inadvertently created a kinky Kenny. “What’s with the weaponry?” Truthfully, I’m afraid to ask.

(A side note: If you like this cover I'd order the paperback or e-book as soon as possible. My publisher is changing Kenny from her pink top to a black tank top, so the cover will look different. There's still time if you would like this cover! It's turning out to be a limited edition. ;) *UPDATE: A few days have drifted by since the post and sure enough the old cover is no more. The new cover is currently up!

Burning Through Gravity New Adult Romance 17+
Stephanie (Stevie) and Ford’s story
(Stevie’s POV, first night they meet)

My shoulders twitch with surprise, and I turn to find Him standing there—a ghost of a smile on his lips. My insides squeeze tight—a quick pang sirens through me just being this close to him. The heat radiates off his body like the summer sun off a New York sidewalk, and I’m drawn to his warmth. He’s massive, muscular, solid as sheetrock, and my fingers twitch just aching to confirm this hard as granite theory. He glances up at the sky as if he was having this conversation with himself, and I was simply listening in. The reserve of sunlight slices through his eyes giving off a reflective luminosity found in animals of the night. This one is a tiger. He’s got those almond eyes, a full mouth he could devour you with, and I’m sort of hoping he will.

The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
Skyla’s POV (Skyla to Logan)

“Do you think we’ve been fooled all along?”
“No.” His gaze locks past my shoulder at nothing in particular. “Because if that were true, he would have been a lie from the beginning and I don’t buy it.”
“So are you buying this new reality? Because I’d like to ship it back to the evil Fem it came from and shove it up his @ss.”

Have a great week!!!!

The Tuesday Tease

Happy Tuesday! It's sunny and warm and (almost) officially summer! I'm sure your TBR pile is growing as is mine but I'm ready to relax next to a large body of water and drink down every last word on my Kindle. 

Book news: SOMEONE FOR ME releases is just two weeeeeeeeks! Can you tell I'm excited??? I'm so, so, SO excited to share the final book in the Someone to Love series with you! Book 3 reverts back to Kendall and Cruise and a hot time is had by all. Can't wait to share. Pre-orders are available for this one! So if you'd like the book to magically appear in your corner of the world simply one click away and Cruise Elton will be ready and waiting for you bright and early come July 1st.

Other book news: I'm thisclose to sending BURNING THROUGH GRAVITY to my betas and editor! Yay! I made my way through the trauma and drama of RL graduations and parties and am back to laser focusing my efforts on BTG. It's such a fun book for me and I hope it will be for you, too. It's unpredictable and wild and full of twists and turns and have I mentioned banter? 

One last bit of news: Ethereal finally has PAPERBACKS!!!! Yes, Celestra is finally rolling out old school with real ink and tree pulp. It's so beautiful to look at and fun to smell and hold. If you're interested in sharing in my quirky euphoria just click the cover below. 

On to the teasers!

 Someone For Me (Book 3 Someone to Love Series) Coming July 1st!
Cruise’s POV with Kendall (Kenny) in their bedroom.

I walk her back and lay her gently on the mattress, trailing kisses from her neck to her chest, down to her smooth, soft belly. I rub my face over her stomach and indulge in the simple act of loving her in this innocent way. There are so many new ways to love Kenny that feel satisfying, though just a week ago I would have brushed them all off as juvenile.
The nightstand drawer opens and closes, and Kenny tosses down what sounds like jewelry, but it’s the chains we’ve used from time to time. I pick them up and gently lay them on the floor, far away from our tender moment.
“Excuse me,” she balks at how quickly I’ve dismissed them. “That was a hint, by the way.” She rubs her foot over my back, and I’m half-tempted to hog-tie her in less than three seconds, just the way she likes it.

Stephanie (Stevie) and Ford’s story
(Ford’s POV, at the beach house)

 “You know”—she scoots in until her stomach presses tight against mine—“the beauty in life is that you don’t have to show the world your every side. There can be sides that are reserved only for those special people. You can let loose and be who you truly are, down to the bones, around those you’re closest to.” She sears my lips with a kiss. “The world needs you one way, and I need you another. You saved me, Ford.” She pants into my mouth before offering me her lips again, harder more urgent than ever.

The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
Gage’s POV (Gage to Chloe)
“You have five seconds to get out of my way.”
That twisted grin I can’t stand twitches on her lips. “Or what?”
“Or I’m going to push right through you.”
“Sounds like a threat I’ve waited my entire life to hear.”
“Shut up, Chloe.”
“I love it when you talk dirty to me. I bet Skyla likes it, too.” Dull laughter vibrates through her. “You ever call her a dirty little slut? Or is that too much reality to drag into your fantasies?”

Have a great week! I'll be on vacay next Tuesday, but I still plan on posting the teasers! See you in 7! 

Keep in touch with me on Facebook, twitter, and instagram! I love chatting with you all! XOXO

The Tuesday Tease!

Happy Tuesday to all! Tuesday is always a great day because for one, it means we survived Monday. I hope you've had a great week! I had one of those milestone weeks with a high school graduate and my baby turning 13. All good things, right? Plus it's officially summer at our house so we can trade the sneakers for flip flops and have some real fun.
Great news! I officially sold Italian book rights for SOMEONE TO LOVE! Ti amo Italia! (Did I get that right? My husband is part Italian but he doesn't speak it so he's no help. But ti amo you, too honey! lol!) 

News: Ethereal gets a new cover!

Pretty, right? Welcome to the Celestra cover family nuEthereal!
And guess what? Paperbacks, that's what!!! Only there's a tiny hold up on Amazon's end so I'll announce it again once that glitch is settled and we can get all excited about it again. 

Book news! BURNING THROUGH GRAVITY edits are kicking my butt. Yes, it's true, but in my defense, life keeps throwing the aforementioned milestones my way. 
Despite that, I did manage to sneak a few scenes into THE DRAGON AND THE ROSE! Small victory. It will be a front burner project as soon as I kick gravity to my editor and betas. 
Also, cover news, I have three cover reveals that are piling up. Soon. SOON!!!!

On to the teasers....

Someone For Me (Book 3 Someone to Love Series) Coming July 1st!

Kendall’s POV (Kenny) with Cruise in their bedroom.

“Now”—Cruise snatches the blackout blindfold and quickly straps it over my eyes—“about cheating on those exams.” He pulls me into his bare chest and rides his lips slowly over my neck. “How far are you willing to go with this?”
I slip the blindfold up an inch and inspect him for a moment.
“All the way.”
And we do.

Stephanie (Stevie) and Ford’s story
(Ford’s POV, at the beach house)

 “You look overdressed.” I sink a kiss onto her lips and try to savor the shit out of it. “Let me help you with that.” I pull her T-shirt right off and she acquiesces with a grin.
“I think you’re looking a little overdressed yourself.” She gives my shorts a quick tug and they voluntarily fall to the floor.
“I’m not a big fan of these jeans,” I say, working like hell to peel them off her body.
“I’m not a big fan of anything that stands between us.” Stevie jumps up on my hips, and I press her against the wall.
Come tomorrow the entire world will stand between us. But, for now, you can’t squeeze a dime between her body and mine.

The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
Gage’s POV (Skyla asking Gage about his book.)

“Well don’t just sit there dimpling at me. Tell me what it’s about.”
“It can’t be about you and me. It’s fiction.” She raises her brow as if asking a question.
“The main character’s name is Gage.”
“You can’t name the main character after yourself. I’m sure there’s some author code regarding that. Plot please. What happens to sweet innocent Gage?”
“It’s suspense—lots of murder and mystery—and I threw a love triangle into the mix just to keep things interesting.”
“Love triangle?” She wrinkles her nose. “Those are so yesterday. Everybody hates them. It’s not like they’re reality based—I mean what girl has two hot guys pining after her?”
This time it’s me raising a brow.

Have a gerat week!~

The Tuesday Tease!!!

*to subscribe to my newsletter for up to date releases and sneak peeks, click HERE

Welcome back! It's Tuesday again~! Goodbye Monday, I won't miss you. It was rough in a first world sort of way. 

Great news~!!!!!! I hit "the end" in BURNING THROUGH GRAVITY! That means it still needs lots of love and attention but I'm way closer than ever to bringing you Stevie and Ford's story, which is hot, steamy, sultry, yummy and did I mention hot? Plus there's all that bickering Stevie and Ford get into. I swear they get off on it. But, that's beside the point (actually that's a huge part of the point and makes the book a lot of fun ;) 

The Solitude of Passion only has two more days at .99! So if you haven't grabbed a copy please do so or tell a friend. The book goes back to regular price until fall or beyond. I always say I buried my heart in that book and mean it. I hope you'll enjoy it or if you've already taken the dive I hope you did enjoy it! 

If you won a copy of Whiskey Kisses from me I received my shipment yesterday and they're headed to the post office today. Yay!!! Sorry for the delay but they are on their way!

A little introduction to BURNING THROUGH GRAVITY. Here's the unofficial jacket blurb. It was impossible to write without giving away any of the twists, but somehow it was done. 

(New Adult Romance 17+) Expected release, late July
Unofficial blurb

Two beautiful souls.
Two seemingly innocent deceptions.

Once they meet, Stevie and Ford explode into one another in a ball of lust, hotter than a July moon. Ford is assertive, dominate and in control, that is until Stevie brings him to his knees. He thinks she’s the most beautiful woman he’s ever met both inside and out. Stevie thinks he’s sweet, and kind of goofy—of course it doesn’t hurt that he drips sex like honey.

Stevie is starting to fall hard for Ford.
And Ford is all in with Stevie.
She wonders if he could ever forgive her for what she’s about to do.
She wonders if she wants him to.

They say love conquers all.
But love never met two liars like Stevie and Ford.

His lie cost her a few sleepless nights.
Her lie will cost him everything.

On to the teasers!

Burning Through Gravity New Adult Romance 17+
Stephanie (Stevie) and Ford’s story
(Ford’s POV, at his home)

“You mind if I give you the tour?”
“Does it include your bedroom?” Her amber eyes steady over mine, and I know for a fact the wrong answer has the power to bury this night.
“Good.” She springs out of her seat, and I breathe a sigh of relief. Stevie Eaton has raised her defenses so high it’s taking all of my conscious efforts to scale that wall. But I’ve never been one to turn down a challenge, especially when it comes to something I want. And God knows I want Stevie Eaton. She will get the tour of the bedroom. It may not be today, but I’ll make sure that, soon enough, it’s her favorite room of the house.

Someone For Me!!!! Yes it's only 1 month away!!!! *runs in circles* *tosses confetti* I'm SO psyched to bring you the conclusion to the Someone to Love series. It truly was a fun and wild ride.
Pre-orders are available for this one.

Someone For Me (Book 3 Someone to Love Series) Coming July 1st!
Kendall’s POV (Kenny) with Cruise in a closet.

“Taking off my clothes? Tying me up?” It comes from me breathy, and I know for a fact it drives Cruise insane when I do that. “Why, if I could, I’d take that belt right off your body and teach you a lesson, Professor Elton.”
His lips twitch with a grin as he reaches down and unhooks his buckle. He pulls his belt off nice and slow, like a snake charmer luring a cobra out of a basket, all the while keeping those stealth-blue eyes locked on mine.

The Dragon and the Rose (Celestra Forever After #2)
Skyla’s POV (Skyla with Gage)

“Tell me again how much you love me.” His arms lock over my body, tight like a seatbelt.
I run my fingers through his smooth hair, touch my cheek to his rough stubble. So much has happened, and, yet, I can’t help but feel like the sickle has yet to strike.
“I love you.” The words whistle from my lips lower than a whisper, weighted down with a question mark at the end.
He buries a hot kiss in my neck and kneads my bare hips with his hands.
“Show me.”

Have a great week all! And for those who have asked,
Whiskey Kisses is available now~!
