Release Event and Giveaway – Lost In Me by Lexi Ryan

Are you ready? The first novel in the series, LOST IN ME by NYT Bestselling Author Lexi Ryan is a sexy New Adult contemporary romance.

It is a new series Here and Now!

And it had been released this April 7th!

Release Graphic

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | iTunes | Kobo

LOST IN ME is on SALE for just .99 cents the first week of release as a fan appreciation from the author! 

LOST IN ME is the first book in the Here and Now series, a spin-off of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Hope series. This sexy amnesia love triangle is intended for mature readers.

 ***

The last thing I remember is having drinks at Brady’s and trying to avoid eye-contact with my life-long crush—the gorgeous, unattainable Maximilian Hallowell. They tell me that was a year ago, but I have no memories of anything since then. What I do have is this ring on my finger that Max says he gave me, and this much-thinner body I’ve dreamed of most of my life. Aside from a case of retrograde amnesia, everything seems almost…perfect.

But the deeper I immerse myself into this new world of mine—planning a wedding to a man I don’t remember dating, attempting to run a business I don’t remember starting—the clearer it becomes that nothing is as it seems. Do I have the life I’ve always wanted or is it a facade propped up by secrets I don’t even know I have?

I need answers before I marry Max, and the only person who seems to have them is the angry, tatted, sexy-as-sin rocker Nate Crane. And Nate wants me for himself.

 ***

LOST IN ME is not a standalone novel, as the story continues in Here and Now book two, FALL TO YOU, releasing in June.

About the Author

Once a college English professor, I now write full time. I live in rural Indiana, where, when I’m not writing, I get to hang out with my husband and two kids–a six-year-old boy and a two-year-old hellion, er, girl. Not surprisingly, reading and writing remain my favorite activities, though both come in bits and pieces these days, not the big hunks of time I enjoyed before I had children. When I’m feeling virtuous, I like to go running (I use that word liberally. I’m really, really slow) or do yoga. Don’t worry, I’m always careful to balance out such activities with a hearty serving of ice cream or a chocolate martini.

Book Tour and Giveaway – What Goes On Tour by Claire Boston

This is my stop on
The Rock Star Tour
for What Goes on Tour by Claire Boston

I’ve read and reviewed this book. I don’t want to give away too much, but you might want to get your copy now. Or go and read my review first. Click here to be zoomed to there. 🙂

What Goes on Tour

is an Adult Contemporary Romance.
The e-book has (depending on the size of your font) 282 pages and has been published on February 11th 2014 by Momentum Moonlight

What goes on tour, stays on tour, or does it?

Few people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock god Kent Downer, and that’s the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential, especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his tour Adrian finds himself in a bind.

Until Libby Myles walks into his life.

Libby has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary job as the nanny for Kent Downer’s niece looks perfectóthe pay is fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fanóit’s the rock star that’s the issue.

Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone’s good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when he’s out of costume he’s differentóshy and uncertain. For Libby it’s a far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.

But when a horrible scandal is unleashedóputting young Kate in dangeróthere’s more heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of the show Ö

Claire Boston was a voracious reader as a child, devouring anything by Enid Blyton as well as series such as Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High. Then one school holidays when sheíd run out of books to read her mother handed her ëHot Iceí by Nora Roberts and Claire instantly fell in love with romance novels.

The love of reading soon turned to a love of writing and she struggled to keep within the 1500 word limit set by her teachers for her creative writing assignments. When she finally decided to become serious about her stories she joined Romance Writers of Australia, found her wonderful critique group and hasnít looked back.

When Claireís not reading or writing she can be found in the garden attempting to grow vegetables, or racing around a vintage motocross track. If she can convince anyone to play with her, she also enjoys cards and board games.

Claire lives in Western Australia, just south of Perth with her husband, who loves even her most annoying quirks, and her two grubby, but adorable Australian bulldogs.

For this tour Claire was willing to tell us a bit about what she did before she wrote this novel. A thing all authors should do but sadly some don’t.

Research!

Most novels require some level of research, whether it’s a quick google to look at a street view image to remind you of what something looks like or whether it’s reading whole swaths of research books to get a full understanding of some aspect of culture or clothing.

What Goes on Tour required a moderate amount of research. The first thing I had to look into was child guardian laws in Texas which is where Adrian is from. I needed to know what was possible in terms of how binding the nominated guardian in a will is and whether there was ability for someone to challenge that. I went to a lot of websites (checking their validity of course) and got a basic understanding of how the law works. Then I found the contact details of a Texas lawyer and explained what I was after, as well as my understanding, to check I was correct. The lady I contacted was really helpful and I was fairly confident my story idea would work.

I also contacted my favourite talk show and asked what happens behind the scenes, before the show is aired. Were there rehearsals? How much makeup had to be applied? What happened after the show? Again there was a really useful response, explaining everything that happened and I realised I had to make a couple of adjustments to my story to incorporate them.

Some things are really easy to research. Want to do know a child friendly activity in and around Melbourne and Sydney? A quick google or look on a travel advisory website and there are a multitude of options to choose from. Other times it’s a little more difficult. The scene where they climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge was one I needed help with as I’ve never done the climb myself. The tour website gave me basic information but then I put out a request on the Romance Writers of Australia email loop, asking if anyone could give me more in depth details. Luckily the group is very supportive and I had a number of people emailing me, telling me of their experiences, what actually happens before the climb and one lady sent me a bunch of pictures showing people on the climb. It was invaluable information and hopefully made the scene that much more authentic.

Research

For my next manuscript I’ll be researching heart attacks, nursing procedures in hospital and sailing. I really enjoy learning new things and so research is always fun for me.

Today I’m hosting a tour for the new julie Cross novel THIRD DEGREE

I have read it, reviewed it (read my review here), and love it!

Third Degree cover

Random House | Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Goodreads

A New Adult Contemporary Romance

By Julie Cross

Published by Flirt (Imprint of Random House)

***

Fans of Monica Murphy and Tammara Webber will savor this New Adult novel—a story about coming of age in the heat of the moment—from Julie Cross, the internationally bestselling author of the Tempest trilogy.

***

I used to be “Isabel Jenkins, child prodigy.” As lame as that sounds, at least it was an identity. But now I’m not sure what I am. I just failed the most important exam of my life—the emotional readiness test required to get into a medical residency program—and it turns out my parents can’t stand each other. Now I’m trying to figure out how to pick up the pieces of my life, and that means re-enrolling as a college freshman, but this time I’m shutting the books and majoring in being eighteen.

But so far, my roommate hates me and I’m not into the party scene. The only good thing about school has been getting to know my insanely hot RA. Marshall Collins makes me wonder about everything I missed while I was growing up too fast. Pretty soon we’re hanging out constantly, but for the first time, I find myself wanting more than a no-strings-attached physical relationship. And the lesson I really need is one Marsh definitely can’t teach me: love. Because I’m going to be alone forever if I don’t learn fast.

If faced with your worst fear, what would you do? Would you run or would you fight?

Camryn Hamilton is a fighter.

A thirty-something mother of two, Camryn appears to have it all: a husband, plenty of money, and children she adores. When she returns home to spend Christmas with her family, her perfect world she has created begins to crumble, thrusting her face to face with the only man who truly knows her.

Holden Patrick will fight harder.

A powerful, handsome attorney, Holden left town after his adoptive parents’ death. In his time away he almost managed to forget the girl who ran away with his heart. At least until a turn of fate brought him back to Mantoloking, and back to Camryn.

But are they willing to fight for each other?

Faced with a tragic past that they both wanted to forget, they struggle to protect their hearts from being broken again. Will their love be enough to get them through another tragedy, or will they close themselves off and run away again?

CamrynABOUT CAMRYN

Camryn is a beautiful mother of two, fighting to keep her life together in the face of tragedy. Camryn Hamilton is a survivor. Something traumatic happened to Camryn when she was young, something that made her pull away from everyone in her life, especially Holden. Cam’s life began to be defined as “before and after”. Before she was broken, she didn’t have a worry in the world and knew what it was like to feel true love. After she was broken, she put walls around her heart. She thought she found love again with Marcus, but the one thing she let herself realize was that although she always loved Marcus, he only got a small part of her heart. Cam has always felt that she was too damaged to love, but with age comes wisdom and she is fighting to find a way to love again.

When creating Camryn, I wanted someone strong, who didn’t use what happened to her as an excuse, but rather as something to motivate her to make her life even better. Camryn is someone who is always trying to do what is right, without compromising her integrity and family.

Camryn’s vices are she tends to overthink every aspect of her life instead of just living it. She is controlling, she likes wine a lot, and she can be known to down a large submarine sandwich from Jersey Mike’s in one sitting.

Camryn’s virtues are that her children come first, she loves whole-heartily, she is organized, she is kind and friendly, she is a loyal and true friend.
