From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff Comes a New Stand-Alone Story.

UGLY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER...

My name is Lily Snow. I am twenty-five years old, and despite being born with an unattractive face, I have never doubted who I am: smart, driven, and beautiful on the inside.

Until I met Maxwell Cole.

He's handsome, excessively wealthy, and the owner of Cole Cosmetics. It's been my dream to work for this man for as long as I can remember. The good news is he wants to hire me. The bad news is he wants me for all the wrong reasons. Ugly reasons.

In exchange, he's offered me my dreams on a silver platter. The job. The title. A beautiful future. But this man is as messed up and ugly as they come on the inside. I'm not sure anyone can help him, and he just might take my heart down with him.

“So I just ran without a shirt for a quarter mile and would’ve gotten to go anyway?”

“Not really. But I wanted to make you feel bad. By the way, has anyone ever told you you’re completely mad?”

I laughed and turned around to unravel my tank top and slip it over my head, a huge smile on my face. “So, what time do we leave for the air—”

I suddenly felt his hot sweaty body pressed up against my back, his one hand on my bare waist, the other sweeping my long hair to one side. “No need to put that back on.”

My breath caught in my throat. “Wha-wha-what are you doing?” I whispered, feeling his hands slide up the front of my body and begin touching my breasts over my bra. He was hard. Really, really hard, and straining against my lower back.

“I think that’s fairly obvious; keeping our deal,” he said, his hot breath tickling my neck.

I was about to say something to explain how I didn’t really want him to do what he was doing, but it would’ve been a lie. The heat of his skin on my back, his hard cock pressing into me while his hands massaged my breasts felt better than anything I’d ever experienced.

His lips trailed down the side of my neck and stopped right on the little spot where my shoulder started.

How was this happening? Because wasn’t he…didn’t he have that problem with…?

THE LEGEND OF LYON REDMOND
Pennyroyal Green #11
Julie Anne Long
Releasing Sept 29th, 2015
Avon Books


Bound by centuries of bad blood, England’s two most powerful families maintain a veneer of civility...until the heir to the staggering Redmond fortune disappears, reviving rumors of an ancient curse: a Redmond and an Eversea are destined to fall disastrously in love once per generation.

An enduring legend

Rumor has it she broke Lyon Redmond’s heart. But while many a man has since wooed the dazzling Olivia Eversea, none has ever won her—which is why jaws drop when she suddenly accepts a viscount’s proposal. Now London waits with bated breath for the wedding of a decade…and wagers on the return of an heir.

An eternal love

It was instant and irresistible, forbidden...and unforgettable. And Lyon—now a driven, dangerous, infinitely devastating man—decides it’s time for a reckoning. As the day of her wedding races toward them, Lyon and Olivia will decide whether their love is a curse destined to tear their families part...or the stuff of which legends are made.

She didn’t hear him.
She was transfixed in horror by the first words on the page.
The Legend of Lyon Redmond
Her breath left her in one painful gust, surely as though a broom handle had been driven into her ribs.
But the worst was yet to come.
Oh, if you thought you’d never see
A bride called Olivia Eversea
Well come along with me, lads, come along with me!
Her pretty self was on the shelf
And at last a-wed she’ll be.
Oh, everyone thought
It was all for naught
And she’d dry up and blow away.
But will Redmond return
And make her burn
For the love of yesterday?
Sensation abandoned her limbs.
Where oh where did Redmond go?
Why oh why did he flee?
Is he riding the Nile on a crocodile?
Or did he take to the wide open sea?
Did a cannibal eat ’im?
Is he living in Eden
With Adam and Eve and the Snake?
Did Miss Eversea scare ’im
Into the arms of a harem
Where he lolls about like a sheik?
Shock reverberated through her as though she’d been driven into the ground with a mallet.
And all the while the little chorus behind her sang on.

Someone back there, she thought irrationally, had a lovely baritone.

Julie Anne Long originally set out to be a rock star when she grew up, and she has the guitars and the questionable wardrobe stuffed in the back of her closet t prove it. When playing to indifferent crowds at midnight in dank clubs lost its, ahem, charm, she realized she could incorporate all of the best things about being in a band—namely, drama, passion and men with unruly hair—into novels, while at the same time indulging her love of history and research. So she made the move from guitar to keyboard (the computer variety) and embarked on a considerably more civilized, if not much more peaceful, career as a novelist.
Julie lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with a fat orange cat. (Little known fact: they issue you a cat the minute you become a romance novelist.)

Book Blast & Giveaway: Dos Angeles by Michael O'Hara


DOS ANGELES
by Michael O'Hara

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:
Mystery

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Dos Angeles, the first in a franchise of mysteries featuring Paco Moran, puts the multicultural thirty-something ex-LAPD homicide detective turned reluctant private eye on the trail of a beautiful young Latina on the run with ten million dollars in cash. Half Anglo and half Mexican, Moran is a transitional character equally at home working in Beverly Hills or blue collar Boyle Heights, the tough East Los Angeles neighborhood where he was raised by a single mom. In his debut case Paco quickly learns he will be the fall guy if he doesn't track down the young immigrant who allegedly stole a small fortune from a sleazy Hollywood producer secretly laundering money for a notorious drug cartel. Paco's frantic search takes him on a roller-coaster ride through a shadowy place he calls Dos Angeles a city within the city and a virtual country unto itself.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:


Then, the day before the Pirellis were due home, something unexpected came up that needed her immediate attention. On hearing what she thought was the sound of a toilet running she first checked downstairs before heading up to the master suite. Inside the gaudy all gold and marble bathroom she discovered a puddle of water seeping out from inside the extra-long double vanity. Opening the main cabinet doors she saw one of the stainless steel hoses was leaking badly. She tried to tighten the connection but it had no effect. Afraid she might make matters worse, she turned off the valve and hurried downstairs to call a plumber on the approved contact list.
A half hour later Sid Kantor showed up and Maria was immediately intimidated by his off-putting physical presence. Short and obesely overweight with a large shaved head, a Quaker-like beard, and dull, hooded eyes, Kantor reminded her of El Malvado, a cartoon villain that used to terrify her as a little girl in Oaxaca. Because of that and his gruff, unfriendly manner, she quickly sensed he was one of those aggressive white foreigners who only saw Mexicans as workers, never as equals.

Not about to give him the satisfaction of staring at her shapely bottom on the way up the steep winding staircase, she politely stepped aside and gestured for him to lead the way. By the time they reached the second floor landing he was grunting and panting so much she feared he might have a heart attack.

“Are you okay, sir?” she asked with genuine concern.

“Ya, ya,” he muttered, wiping his brow with his shirt sleeve. “It’s dis damn heat.”

Minutes later Maria stood by patiently as Kantor awkwardly maneuvered his way under the sink to remove and replace the faulty hose. When he finally finished he turned the water back on to test it.

“Dat should do it,” he said in a heavily accented, non-American voice. “Let run five minutes to make sure.”

After struggling to get back up on his feet Kantor gestured with the flashlight he’d been using, illuminating the inside of the cabinet.

“You know what behind dere?” he asked, focusing the light on a small pocket door under the sink.

“Behind where?” Maria was confused.

“Dere, dere!” he growled, swirling the light around to emphasize what he was talking about

“I don’t know,” she shrugged.

“Strange. Hah?” He pointed the flashlight at the door again. “Must be something back dere.”

Since Kantor was obviously way too big to crawl through himself, Maria volunteered to take a look while he was still there.

“No time,” he said, tapping on his watch. “Late for next appointment.”

He handed her a business card. “You call if any more problems.”

She promised she would and saw him out.

After he left, she decided to return upstairs to check behind the cabinet to make sure there were no hidden pipes that could be leaking. When she slid open the mystery door, she was startled to discover a secret room. “Dios mío!” she whispered.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:



Emmy nominee Michael O’Hara-- who has written and produced some of the highest-rated television movies and miniseries in recent memory – is adding author to his resume with the August, 2015 the publication of his first novel,  Dos Angeles.

The book, featuring a bilingual and bicultural private eye named Paco Moran, centers around Moran’s desperate search for a beautiful young Latina immigrant who stole ten million dollars from the mob. In a pre-publication review American Book Award winner Peter Quinn said: Paco Moran’s debut in Michael O'Hara's Dos Angeles is fast-paced, finely crafted, and full of surprises. It's noir fiction for the 21st century, a helluva ride from the first page to last. Here's hoping O'Hara brings Paco back very soon. I can't wait!

A former award-winning journalist and NBC Vice President of Media Relations, O’Hara made an auspicious debut as a writer/producer with “Those She Left Behind,” a critically acclaimed family drama that continues to be the highest-rated TV movie (25.1/38 share) on any network in over twenty years. It starred Gary Cole and Colleen Dewhurst (who won an Emmy Award for her performance). That success was followed by the widely praised NBC movie “She Said No” which won an American Women in Radio & Television Award for Best Television Dramatic Special.

O’Hara next wrote and executive produced “Switched at Birth,” the blockbuster NBC miniseries that earned an Emmy nomination as Best Dramatic Special and remains the highest rated (22 rating/33 share) miniseries on network television since its initial telecast over two decades ago. He was also the writer and executive producer of “Murder in the Heartland,” a celebrated ABC miniseries which garnered a Casting Society of America Award and two Emmy nominations. Right after that he created and executive produced the first of 22 “Moment of Truth” movies for NBC, establishing one of the most successful film franchises in TV history.

O’Hara also wrote “She Woke Up Pregnant,” the pilot for ABC’s ‘Crimes of Passion’ franchise. It scored an impressive 13.4 rating and 21 share, making it the highest-rated ABC movie of the year. He went on to write “One Hot Summer Night,” another ‘Crimes of Passion’ thriller that was ABC’s highest-rated Thursday night movie of the season. Other producing credits include two CBS projects: “Twilight Zone – Rod Serling’s Lost Classics” and “A Child’s Wish,” which was filmed in the Oval Office and featured a cameo appearance by then President Bill Clinton. In addition he wrote and executive produced NBC’s “In His Life: The John Lennon Story” and “1st to Die,” a two-part NBC miniseries based on the best-selling novel by James Patterson.

Overall O’Hara has produced four miniseries and 33 Movies of the Week. Besides his Emmy nomination, other honors include: a Christopher Award (“A Child’s Wish”); a Prism Award (“The Accident”); a Humanitas Award nomination (“Heart of a Child”); a National Easter Seal Society Award (“To Walk Again”); an International Health & Medical Film Award (“Heart of a Child”); and the Media Award from The National Council on Problem Gambling (“Playing to Win.”)

Book Blast & Giveaway: A Fistful of Clones by Seaton Kay-Smith


A Fistful of Clones
by Seaton Kay-Smith

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Henry Madison is an apathetic young man with little to no ambition. When he loses his job and his girlfriend in one day, he is destitute and signs up for paid medical testing. The doctor creates clones of Henry and when these clones escape and start causing havoc in Henry's life, he is hired in secret by the strange doctor and trained to hunt the clones down one by one and kill them. Henry soon finds out, however, that personality isn't genetic but made of the experiences you have, and as time progresses, his clones become less carbon copied than he was lead to believe, growing their own identities and challenging Henry's perception of what it means to be Henry Madison and of what it is right and what is wrong.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT:


The midday sun sat high in the sky, that glowing orange orb of light and warmth. It cooked the streets and sent steam rising from the tarmac, warping the landscape beyond the crest of the road.

Henry walked along the main street dressed in his job seeker’s best: a pair of black jeans and a collared shirt rolled up at the sleeves to accommodate the weather. The main street of Duelham was quiet, only a few people wandering around: couples and families mostly, some kids eating ice-cream and other kids pointing at the ice-cream-eating kids, shouting, pleading to their parents or guardians for the day, “But they get to eat ice cream!”

Henry spied a Help Wanted sign lying in the window of the local bookshop, and entered. The bookshop, dealing in second-hand books primarily, was dusty and smelt of mould, like a damp loaf of bread. It was a comforting smell to the poor and out-of-work Henry. He was not above eating damp bread loaves.

The manager, a man of about forty-five, balding and thin, with braces holding up his pants, watched Henry walk up the “Self-help” aisle and towards the counter. “Can I help you with anything?” he asked, pushing his thin-framed glasses back up to the top of his nose as Henry arrived at the register.

“Yes, I was looking for a job.”

The manager’s tone perked up. He was looking for help, that’s why he’d made the sign. “Okay, great, do you have any qualifications?”

Henry thought about his illustrious career as a human being and what he had achieved. “I’m a Bronze Coach in swimming,” he began, before finishing with, “but that doesn’t really—”

“Apply,” the store manager said. He looked at Henry and changed tack, giving him an opportunity, a chance to impress. “Why is it that you want to work here?”

Henry’s stomach grumbled. “To earn some money?” The slight inflection Henry gave to his statement made it seem like he was unsure, but the point was made.

The manager’s expression changed to one of confusion, then his mouth twisted into a bemused smile. “Okay, tell you what, bring in your résumé and we’ll keep you in mind.”

Henry nodded, defeated. What else could he do? “Thanks, I will.”

Leaving the bookshop, Henry cursed the manager whom he was now sure was a villain. He didn’t have a résumé, he’d have to write one up. He needed money now; he was hungry now. Hungry enough to eat a horse but, short of a horse, he’d accept an apple. Ideally an apple the size of a horse, but he wasn’t going to hold his breath.

Entering a fruit shop in search of that apple, he fiddled in his pockets and counted his change: thirty-five cents. He looked at the apples and weighed them one by one until he found an apple that he could afford. It definitely wasn’t comparable to a horse. Perhaps a seahorse.

He paid for the apple and left the store, ready to sate that feverish hunger growing inside of him. He took a bite and, rather than filling him with satisfaction, it filled him with anger. Henry had purchased a floury apple. The worst of the apple textures, a consistency akin to having wet sand poured into your open mouth. He could feel a rage building up inside of him. So many dreams and hopes piled into the white flesh of the apple in his hands, the crisp green skin giving way to utter despair. His blood vessels pumped at double speed, beads of sweat began to express themselves from his forehead, his muscles tensed and ached, his vision became blurry, and a wall of dizzying white was all he could see. He threw the remaining apple into a wall, exploding it in a sticky, juicy mess. “Fuck!” he screamed.

Still he felt no sadness for the end of his relationship or his current poverty-driven indictment, just mountains of rage and sorrow for the poorly composed piece of fruit he’d wasted his last thirty-five cents on. Hell hath no fury like a person who’s just eaten an apple that was no better than a shit onion.

Regaining his composure, Henry walked away, feeling nothing but slight concern for his sudden and unnecessary outburst. He didn’t know why he got angry sometimes. He would have to beat that emotion into submission too. There was no need for anger. It achieved nothing.

On his way home once more, Henry’s eyes happened upon the poster he’d seen the previous night: Paid Medical Subjects—No Questions Asked. There was no street light shining on it now and yet still it seemed to glow somehow. He ripped it from the wooden pole on which it was taped and followed its directions to become a Paid Medical Subject.
