NEW RELEASE STAY by S. MuLHOLLAND



Synopsis:
Eighteen year old Alexandra Angel has finally made it out of her abusive mother’s house alive, now going to St. Norbert College in the small town she grew up in; she wants to experience living her own life, free of abuse, but on the night she meets Jason Roberts; her fate has something different in mind.
Alexandra and Jason have a strong connection but the closer she gets to him, the further he shuts her out. This doesn’t stop Alexandra’s heart from falling in love with Jason and she fears that he might not feel the same way about her. Jason holds a lot of mystery and secrets that Alexandra tries to figure out and on a night when they are to meet, he never shows up, leaving her to mourn the loss of his absence.
Months later, he returns to tell her he’ll never be able to be with her the way that she wants to be with him. Hurt for the second time by the man she loves, Alexandra decides to move on with her life with what others told her to be “the perfect man”, Zac Millington. As time with him goes by she realizes that things were never as they seemed…as he seemed.
If you had the opportunity to change what becomes your worst nightmare, would you take the chance to change it or pretend like that nightmare is what’s meant to be?
Stay is a romantic depiction of how two people that are meant to be together are torn apart by the one thing they both have in common. As they both go through their own versions of abuse, will they be able to stay after finally finding each other again?

Excerpt: (Might differ from published version)
“Alexandra…let me hear you say it…” He whispers.
All thoughts evaporate from my mind at the sound of his voice.
I want to turn around and face him but his hands go to my hips then, slowly turning and walking me towards something.
As we come to a stop his body presses into me from behind pushing me up against the door that shut moments ago.
I slightly open my eyes but everything is blurry which confuses me until his hands roam every curve of my body making me close them again.
My heart rate picks up and I hope that he can’t hear how loud it’s beating. “Say what?” I ask breathlessly.
His hands stop their exploration at my stomach.
I gasp when pulls me back into him and I feel every inch of his hardness.
I try to open my eyes again so that I can see him but I can’t. I’m so in the moment with this man that my brain doesn’t seem to be functioning correctly. All I know is that his voice alone is lighting my body on fire.
One of his hands leaves my stomach and I feel my hair being moved to the side. His lips start to torture me on my neck and I shiver. He places feather like kisses there and I struggle not to let my knees buckle.
“Say that you understand your mine and nobody else’s…” He says when he gets near my ear.



Bio:
I’m from Green Bay, Wisconsin. I went to a small private college in a town called De Pere before joining the U.S. Navy in 2006. After my short career in the military, I got married and started having kids. I have two munchkins now. I’ve been a stay at home mom for a couple of years.
This past Christmas, my husband got a Nook Color as a gift and he never got to use it because it was always glued to my hands. I never liked reading but once I picked up that Nook—I was addicted. So I’ve read a TON of books and it’s become my getaway. I started writing as a hobby but after I finished Stay, my husband encouraged me to get out there…so here I am. I love listening to music and find it inspirational and I think that it goes hand in hand with writing.

REVIEW OF EYES WIDE OPEN by RAINE MILLER



Can you find your soul-mate.  and really look into their soul and see who they are and love them for who they are?







Book Blurb

Big surprises are on the horizon for Ethan and Brynne as they struggle to adjust to what life has thrown at them. Demons from the past are threatening to destroy the passionate bond they’ve forged despite their vow that nothing will ever keep them apart. A truly devastating loss coupled with the promise of a new hope opens their eyes to what is most important, but is it possible for the lovers to move on from the painful histories that continue to haunt them? A stalker is still lurking in the shadows, plotting evil amidst the distraction of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Brynne and Ethan are on the cusp of losing everything as the stakes rise. Will they yield to circumstances beyond their control or will they give every ounce of fight they have left to save each other and win the ultimate prize of a life together?

Eyes Wide Open is a passion-wrought story that shows us what pure love can achieve when tested and what the heart can accomplish despite danger and adversity.



My Thoughts

Two souls damaged, can they come together as one through all the tribulations they have had to endure?  Have you ever wished for that one person who could change your life and turn it upside down?  And in so many ways then you can count.  I do not think Ethan and Brynne imagined this would ever happen.  With the threat to Brynne's life still evident, Ethan takes matters into his own hands. What does this mean for her life and their future?  Raine Miller’s storytelling is one to be relished, and once again she pulls out all the stops in the third book in the Blackstone Affair.  The sexual pull and love Ethan has for his “American Girl” is one to rival all other romances. The characters are well written and I felt every ounce of pain and joy that the couple experienced as I read their story.  With an on the edge plot I couldn’t put the book down.  I kept asking these questions. Will they come together? Will they last?  Will Brynne ever find out what happened to Ethan and the triggers to his nightmares?   Intrigue, deception, and murder all rolled into a tight bundle for the readers to enjoy.  Last question, but you must read the book to find the answer, will they get there happily ever after? And will they do it with their “Eyes Wide Open”?

INTERVIEW WITH RAINE MILLER

Author Bio
A New York Times bestselling author who has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too. Granted, Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. Ever! Writing books pretty much fills her days now and she's always busy. Raine has a prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. She loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books. You can connect with her on Facebook or visit her blog at www.RaineMiller.com to find out what she's working on now.








I was introduced to Raine Miller's books by a friend of mine OK she is more like a sister to me.    Then a group of people said you known you really need to read, I guarantee you will enjoy them.  Well let's just say I purchased the first one and before I finished it had bought the second one.  I was captivated from page one and literally could not put it down.  Raine Miller has brought sexy back yeah yeah you thought it was Justin Timberlake.  Sorry to disappoint you but it was Raine Miller.  In loo of her third book being released I decided to dig a little deeper into the person that is Raine Miller.   Raine  is a fantastic story teller and gives you that edge you need to keep you ensconced in her love stories involving Brynne and the deliciously handsome Ethan Blackstone.  So sit back and get to know the lovely Raine who has brought us the books we love to read and keeps our hearts beating fast.  









Q:   Ethan Blackstone is an extremely mouthwatering male character where does your inspiration for him come from?

Raine: Ethan came to me from the physical muse of British model, David Gandy.  His personality was a blend of elements that I like in a hero.  I wanted him to be successful but not the ruler of the universe, and I wanted him to be a loner rather than a player. 

Q:  This is a very steamy book, filled with lots of steamy sex. Why did you choose this genre? 

Raine:  I started writing the kind of book that I love to read myself.  This is what I like to read, thus it’s what I write.

Q:  Knowing that you have a third book coming out in this series, will there be other series? And are you are working on it already?

Raine: I do have a 4th Blackstone book coming at the end of the year.  It will be more of a standalone though.  I am also working on The Rothvale Legacy which is a spinoff of Blackstone featuring Ethan’s cousin, Ivan Everley as the hero.

Q:  In life, what has been your biggest and most surprising accomplishment/s?

 Raine:  Making the New York Times as an indie author is up there pretty high.

Q:  If you met a man like Ethan would you react to him the same way  Brynne did? 

Raine:  Ummm…my books are works of fiction.  Lovely, fantastical fiction.  *grinning*

Q:  Do you feel you were destined to be a writer? What made you choose writing, say over research or something as equally boring?

Raine:   I didn’t start writing until four years ago.  It was something I discovered as a fun way to entertain myself and I loved it so much I kept on writing.  It was for me, as fun as reading a good book that I couldn’t stop reading.  Writing was just a hobby I did in my free time.  I sort of fell into this.  I never dreamed it would turn into a new career.

Q:  Would you ever think to pose nude for any type of art? 

Raine:  Possibly in my youth I might have considered it.  I studied art in college and life drawing is a course we had to take.  The body as subject is just that—art.

Q:  Who or what is your biggest inspiration in life? 

Raine:  My goal is to live my life truthfully and healthfully with no regrets about the choices I’ve made.  I think if I can manage that, then I am golden.  I’ve been blessed with a husband who supports me and is proud of me, and two beautiful children.  I am a lucky woman.

Q:    If you could accomplish anything in life what would it be and why?

Raine:   I would like to have a book that I’ve been written be made into a film.  That is my ultimate dream to be able to bring a story I created, to so many people.

Q:  Come on, tell the truth. Rhage is your favorite BDB Brother, true? You can admit it, it is just between friends *winks*
Raine:  I LOVE Rhage at BDB Unbound that is very true.  *smiles wide*

Q:  Really, who is your favorite character in fiction? Male? Female?  What are their strengths and weaknesses? 

Raine:  There are many favorites.  Males:  Vishous from JR Ward’s Lover Unbound, Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice, Sherlock Holmes from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jason Bourne from Robert Ludlam’s The Bourne Identity.  Females:  Ayla from Jean Auel’s Clan of the Cave Bear series, Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice, Laura Ingalls Wilder.
The men are all aloof and strong, intelligent and somewhat damaged.  The women are all kind and smart, but compassionate and tough.

REVIEW FOR TESTING FATE by Belinda Boring

THE FATES HAVE INTERVENED


Life or Death could you do it for Love.  








Book Blurb

Nothing burns as bright as the flames of the refiner’s fire.

Moments after hearing the Council sentence her enemy to life imprisonment for attempted murder and illegal use of magic, Darcy is whisked away by the Fates—accused of tampering with destiny. The cherished dream she shared with Mason has been called into question, placing doubt about whether they are actually true mates. To resolve it, a price must be paid—the Heart or Death—a grueling series of tests designed to reveal a person’s worth.

The stakes are high and Darcy finds herself facing the unknown in conditions that leave her more vulnerable than she’s ever been. Separated from Mason and her Pack, with Devlin as her only companion, she is pushed to her very limits. She must succeed—or lose everything.

Will she crumble under the pressure or emerge stronger for testing fate?

My thoughts

Mason and Darcy must do the inevitable to ensure there mate status is upheld by the fates. Would you go above and beyond for your love even if it meant death.  Darcy holds steadfast to her beliefs through every trial and tribulation the fates put before her and she must do it by herself. So what does the future hold for this couple that is something I shall not divulge? But I promise it does not stop there. The author once again throws a cliffhanger in our direction, one that will have you saying whaaaaaaaaa. With this last cliffhanger I wonder what wild ride Belinda will be taking us on next time.  

I give this book...
