Don't you love the 4th of July?

Well, of course, if you're not in the U.S. you probably couldn't care less.

But here it's a great day of parades, beach, barbecues and...fireworks!

And there are tons of hot and sexy fireworks between Sean Jones and Veronica Hardwicke, the hero and heroine of THUNDER, which takes place on Indepence Day.

Here's a snippet from Sean's point of view, to get you going.  THUNDER is only 99 cents at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  It's a quicky,  fun and sexy, 1Night Stand story from my SLEEPY HOLLOW series.


 “It’s a holiday weekend, Mrs. Hardwicke.” He glanced at the cover girl curled beside him. “I’ve got plans.”

Plans that included lolling around in bed with Erica all weekend. Maybe whipped cream. Or chocolate sauce. The A/C cranked high in his luxury Manhattan condo to block out the brutal summer rays. Maybe afterward taking in a little of the Independence Day fireworks display from his floor-to-ceiling windows and balcony overlooking New York Harbor.

En-fucking-chanting. But still.

The thought of ditching his current squeeze and battling Fourth of July traffic and the sweltering temperature to drive up to Westchester so that the ditzy broad calling the shots on the renovation project could request changes yet again to the old mansion in Sleepy Hollow, did not sit at all well with him. She’d already made him yank out four bathrooms three times.

But hell, as long as she paid for it, she could do whatever the fuck she wanted. Within reason.

The design was one of Campbell’s most astonishing and innovative new concepts, and Sean would protect that or go certifiable trying. He also badly wanted to snag a couple of full-color, five-page spreads in Architectural Digest and Town & Country for the company he and Camp ran, along with the support of Silent Partner and Developer Girl, who preferred to remain anonymous.

Then there was the stunning multi-million dollar bonus Veronica Hardwicke had promised once she was satisfied. If he ever managed to satisfy her.

That last thought caused him to veer off course into erotic territory, conjuring raw, carnal images of the various ways he might satisfy her.

Tara Andrews' Cover Reveal: HER EVERYTHING

 Her Everything by Tara Andrews

Thank you, Taryn, for hosting me today.  I’m excited to share the cover of my upcoming release, Her Everything.  Don’t you just love a man in a tux?  I certainly do and have the pins on Pinterest to prove it!  LOL.  Meet Mark Travis, sexy front man and the man of Rachel Turner’s dreams.  This is my second contribution to Decadent Publishing’s 1Night Stand series and I can’t wait for it to be available.  Look for it in July 2014!

Here’s a little bit about Her Everything:

Rachel Turner made a mistake—a couple, in fact.  Ruining a surprise meeting with the front man to her favorite band was just the beginning.  Agreeing to switch places with her famous sister, though, may be the beginning of the end of both of their careers.  With rumors flying and an unexpected invitation from Madame Eve she’s hoping to avoid another blunder.

Attending an event to support a charity close to his heart, Mark Travis wasn’t looking for love, or even company—and definitely not with fan.  But when he puts in a hasty bid at a silent auction and wins the services of 1Night Stand, Madame Eve has something different in mind.  A single evening with a woman she claims can fulfill his needs.  One night might not be enough, though.

Come morning will their unexpected evening give them more than they bargained for?  Will they find everything they ever dreamed of?

Fellow Decadent Publishing author Tara Quan is my guest today to share the news that her multicultural contemporary romance, DELICIOUS DELAY, is now on sale for 99 cents! Take it away, Tara!

Delicious Delay by Tara Quan – 99c SALE!
Thank you for letting me share my multicultural contemporary romance, Delicious Delay. The book is currently on sale for a limited time. You can grab it for only 99c from Amazon, B&N, AllRomance, and Decadent.
After my own not-so-delicious delay in the Middle East, I set out to write something funny, sexy, and set entirely in an airport lounge. It’s a quick summer read meant to make your mouth water (from the food...) and your toes curl. I hope I’ve piqued your interest enough to give one of the links below a click. ~Tara Quan

Delicious Delay
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Interracial/Multicultural, Arab Hero/Sheikh
Stranded in a Middle Eastern airport, Michelle Day finds herself the object of interest for an abrasive, but all-too-sexy stranger—a stranger who tempts her with the forbidden in a land where indecency could get her killed. But how does one say no to such a deliciously, relentless pursuit?
Khalid Al Dehri takes one look at the red-headed spitfire in the business class lounge and knew he’d either been transported to heaven—or hell. Her tart response to his surliness intrigues him beyond all propriety and the longer he spends in her company, the more he can’t deny his forbidden attraction. But will she explore the sensuality between them or will society’s rules keep them apart?
He splayed his hand over the back of her head. She parted her lips to ask him where this would lead. But before she could make a sound, his mouth closed over hers.
She couldn’t remember the last time she’d been kissed. Even if she did, his mastery would have turned the memory to cinder. She faced a man, not a young boy experimenting with teeth and tongue. Instead of the comfortable joining of lips between two people more friends than lovers, he drowned her in a tangle of silk and steel.
His tongue delved. She closed her fingers over his broad shoulders before trailing them down his triceps. One of his hands cradled her nape as the other spanned her back. The contact melted her muscles. With his arms snaked around her body, she felt captive even though she sat on top.
She should be in charge. She should be taking the lead. Instead, his mouth set the rhythm and pace, guiding her through the sensual dance she only now realized she had barely known.
She reminded herself this was just a kiss—a single, sumptuous, seemingly endless kiss that threatened to turn her brain to mush.
