BLURB:

Strapped for cash and drowning in his ailing mother’s medical debt, the one bright spark in Jack Castor’s life is working his dream job for a speciailty clothing manufacturer that caters to large men. Although his personal life is all but non-existent, career-wise, he thrives under the tutelage of his friend and father-like mentor, Cronus Gigandet, a gigantic man with a heart to match. But when Cronus dies suddenly, the company’s future is thrown into uncertainty.

Titan Gigandet, Cronus’ wayward son, a giant of a man in his own right, is furious when he learns his father has included his upstart protégé, Jack, in his will, leaving him equal shares in the family-run factory. Reluctantly, Titan rescinds his own self- imposed exile and returns to a company in turmoil.

The gloves come off, and the major players fight for control. With the shareholder’s agreement about to run out, decisions concerning the business need to be made, and quick. But Jack and Titan clash at every turn. The pair is so at odds, the quarrels rapidly become physical, but fists soon give way to angry, forbidden kisses. Though the blazing new attraction does nothing to quell the antagonism or distrust between them.

While battling to save the company, Jack’s mother takes a turn for the worse. Just when it seems like all hope is lost, Titan unearths a stunning find.

Could this new discovery be Jack’s ‘golden goose’ or just the beginning of the end to everything Jack holds dear?

Thank you so much for hosting today, Rebecca, and helping reveal my boys!

Author Bio:

H K Carlton is a multi-published Canadian author of romance and its varied sub-genres, including contemporary, paranormal, historical, family saga and erotica.

H ~ K

I enjoy writing in many different genres. I write where the muse takes me and make no apologies for it. By now, it’s quite safe to say I will never pick just one genre and stick to it. There are just too many possibilities and stories left to tell. Today time-travel, tomorrow sweet historical romance—the next release might be, down and dirty erotica or ménage. I hope you’ll join me for the ride.

Variety is creativity’s playground—It’s where you’ll find me.

#NewRelease ‘Tanner’s War’ by Amber Morgan @AmberMothling

Banner2a

I’m happy to be hosting Amber Morgan today, a fellow Evernight author, for her hot new release Tanner’s War. Take it away, Amber…

Thanks for having me today, Rebecca! I’m delighted to be introducing my new MC romance series, Wild Blood MC, which kicks off with TANNER’S WAR. I had a lot of fun writing this story, and probably just as much fun researching it…And by research I mean looking at pictures of sexy, tattooed bikers on Pinterest…That counts, right? Fun fact for you – Tanner’s tattoo mentioned in the excerpt below is actually real. My fiance has that exact design on his own forearm. Always great when you can find inspiration right at home!

TannersWar-evernightPublishing-JayAheer-9072015-3DrenderBlurb:

He’s not looking for trouble.

Tanner is fresh out of prison and trying to stay clean. His place in Wild Blood MC demands it. But when he nearly runs over a terrified woman, trouble finds him. Beth needs a savior and Tanner can’t say no.

She’s desperate to escape.

Beth chose running over a forced marriage. She’s got nothing and nobody – until she meets Tanner.

But with a fanatical cult leader hunting her, can she risk staying with the first man to defend her?

Tanner’s willing to put it all on the line for Beth – even his beloved MC. The fallout will change both their lives.

Excerpt:

Tanner nodded, absently rubbing the tattoo on his forearm. It was an ambigram design in heavy gothic script – reading “love” one way up and “hate” the other. It was his newest too, his prison ink.

“The guy who came after Beth at the diner was spouting Bible verses and talking about ‘the church.’ And he had this pin on his shirt, like a cross with a snake around it. Beth was running out from Heatherton Farm way.”

“There’s nothing at Heatherton Farm,” Nash said. “Place has been abandoned for years.”

Tanner nodded. At one point the MC had talked about buying the land up and using the old buildings for underground fighting. “Right, but there’s a village close by, isn’t there? Not even a village, more like…”

“A commune,” Judge said, when Tanner couldn’t find the word he wanted.

“Right,” Tanner agreed. “So while I was on the inside, I met this guy – a tattooist.” He tapped his ink again. “He grew up in this commune. I’m sure it’s the same place. He ran away when he was like, fifteen or sixteen. Said the whole community is one of these extreme religious deals, like the Quiverfull Movement and that shit. I can’t remember what he called it, but I bet that’s where Beth’s from.”

“The Church of the Serpentine Cross,” Judge said. He’d straightened up again, expression serious and thoughtful. “They were in the papers a couple years back, remember? Rumors about child brides and shit. Nothing ever came of it.”

Nash nodded slowly. “I remember. Snake-handlers and shit like that. Well, so what? They’re weird, so what? Can’t judge a man for what he believes. And if they really weren’t messing with kids or anything…So what?”

Tanner tried to smother his irritation. “So what if they’re more than just weird? Beth’s scared, man. She ran away with nothing, in a storm like this…Maybe they don’t mess with kids, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t into some dark shit. That guy at the diner, Nathaniel, he was no good. No fucking good at all.”

Nash rested his hands on the table, palms down. In most people it was a gesture of calm, but Tanner knew better. Nash was trying to hide his anger – trying to keep his hands under control.

“Look kid,” he said in a tone that was just short of patronizing. “I get it. You see a wounded woman, you go all superhero. I get it. It’s commendable. You’ve got a good heart. But you are six months out of prison and you’re damn lucky to be out at all after what you did. You could have gone away a lot longer. Now you wanna get mixed up in whatever this is? Snake-handling cults and runaways? Don’t do it, Alex. Don’t you fucking dare.”

A Little Update From Me to You

Ok, well as most of you know I post every Monday for Kayla Lords’s Masturbation Monday meme, but I’ve also been working my arse off writing a novella which I finished last month, and an anthology of flash fiction and short stories (this isn’t quite finished yet).Evernight publishing banner

I’m really happy to say that I’ve just signed a contract with Evernight Publishing. They’re going to publish my hot, m/m/f menage novella called ‘A Taste For Three‘ in August this year.

*Cue me doing spontaneous happy dancing and intermittent squeals of excitement*

I’ll post more details about the story nearer the time of its release.

It’s been a real roller coaster. I only found out they wanted the story a week ago: I’ve already done the blurb, cover art sheet and signed the contract. My head is spinning – I can’t believe how fast it’s moving. Evernight do great covers, so I can’t wait to see what they do for ‘A Taste For Three‘.

I will have a limited amount of ARC copies so if anyone wants one in exchange for an honest review, just DM me @Northerngirl76 or email me rebeccablackwords@gmail.com.  I’ll also be looking for blogs to help me blast that baby into the ether. So please get in touch if you’re interested in hosting me around the time of its release. Any support will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for all your support and encouragement with my writing over the past 24 weeks. Every bit of feedback and every comment has helped and motivated me. You’re an awesome group of people and I feel really lucky to be a part of this little part of the net!
