Crossing Quinn
by Gail Koger


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


GENRE:  Science Fiction/Romance


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


BLURB:

Quinn Jones is a formidable Coletti warlord. His mission is to capture Xenia and bring her back to Tanith to be mated with a warrior the Overlord has chosen. Problem is, Quinn finds himself falling for the beautiful Farin. Her unusual “psychic powers, combat training and berserker abilities” make her the perfect mate for him. How does he convince Xenia and the Overlord that she’s meant to be his?

Xenia and her parents are relic hunters who just discovered the fabled home world of the Nabateans. She isn’t about to leave the greatest find of the century to hook up with some Coletti. Not happening. Ever. No matter how many threats the Overlord makes or that he’s sending his best hunter to apprehend her. Okay, she’ll admit she’s drawn to the handsome warlord and she loves the way Quinn’s heavily muscled body fills out his black battle suit, but the egotistical jerk is about to get his ass handed to him.

When the galaxy is threatened with annihilation, Xenia and Quinn join forces to stop the murderous Tai-Kok. Fate has brought them together and nothing will stand in the way of their victory or their love.


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


EXCERPT:

“I will do what is necessary to keep my mother safe.”

Quinn snorted. “And get your ass shot off. Wait for me.”

“No.”


“Stupidity is not a virtue.”

The first chance I got I was stunning his ass. “You need to get laid. It might improve your disposition.” I gave myself a mental head smack. Goddess, where in the nine hells had that come from?

A smile curved Quinn’s mouth. “You offering, darlin’?”

“Not in this lifetime.” My love life might suck, but taking on a dictatorial, bad- tempered Coletti warrior was sheer madness. A sigh escaped me. No matter how attractive I found him.

“You’ve never been kissed, have you?”

My jaw dropped. What? One look at the devilry in Quinn’s eyes, and I knew he enjoyed provoking me. “That is none of your business.” My duties didn’t allow time for romance, and keeping Mami safe was a full-time job.

Quinn smirked. “Pucker up, sweetheart. It’s an easy fix.”

I started the hover bike and zoomed off. I was definitely stunning him. Twice.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I was a 9-1-1 dispatcher for the Glendale Police Department and to keep from going totally bonkers – I mean people have no idea of what a real emergency is. Take this for an example: I answered, “9-1-1 emergency, what’s your emergency?” And this hysterical woman yelled, “My bird is in a tree.” Sometimes I really couldn’t help myself, so I said, “Birds have a tendency to do that, ma’am.” The woman screeched, “No! You don’t understand. My pet parakeet is in the tree. I’ve just got to get him down.” Like I said, not a clue. “I’m sorry ma’am, but we don’t get birds out of trees.” The woman then cried, “But… What about my husband? He’s up there, too.” See what I had to deal with? To keep from hitting myself repeatedly in the head with my phone, I took up writing.

The Mer Chronicles by Errin Stevens | Book Tour | Silver Dagger Book Tours Presents #Paranormal #RomanticSuspense #RomSus

The Mer Chronicles by Errin M. Stevens are on virtual book tour with Silver Dagger Book Tours and stop at Readerpolis today. Don't forget to enter for a chance to win the giveaway and follow the book tour (for other dates see the link at the bottom of the post).


Updrift
The Mer Chronicles Book 1
by Errin M. Stevens
Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense

Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.
Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.





Breakwater
The Mer Chronicles Book 2

The sirens of Griffins Bay are in trouble, and the recent slew of royal suicides looks to be the least of their worries.



For one, unless a blood relative of the queen shows up, no one's around to staff the monarchy. Well, except for a whack-job bureaucrat and he seriously won't do. Worse is the community unrest threatening siren society, a problem caused by too many humans in the pool, which means Simon and his off-limit girlfriend will have to run and hide if they want to make more of their flirtation... 



The solution doesn't inspire confidence at first, but the Blakes have everything at hand to set their world to rights - namely, a hidden queen, a dead prince, and a facility for human manipulation. Once they find their sea legs, they'll restore order, distribute smart phones, and drive that conniving bureaucrat to a grisly, satisfying end.




Errin Stevens writes paranormal fiction and reads practically everything she can get her hands on. She's currently working through the Time 100 with all her rabid reader buddies at Carpe Librum, and will think about posting reviews if she can get to it... Her first novel, Updrift, debuted Nov. 2015; and the sequel, Breakwater, released Nov. 2016.

Author Q&A ft Christina Elliott | IN THE HEAT OF THE TROPICS Book Tour & $15 GC #Giveaway | @ChristinaHoag & @GoddessFish Present #RomanticSuspense #RomSus

Goddess Fish Promotions has organized a Virtual Book Tour for IN THE HEAT OF THE TROPICS by Christina Elliott, a romantic suspense available now from Melange Books/Satin Romance.

Christina Elliott will be awarding a $15 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour.

In the Heat of the Tropics

by Christina Elliott
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romantic suspense

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

BLURB:

Amid a sweltering Miami summer, a serial killer is haunting the city. Reporter Ingrid Sorenson is assigned the story and her primary source is brusque detective Rick Gonzalez. The pair clash, but sparks of passion ignite. They risk their jobs to give in to their desire, but mistrust of each other’s career motives wedges them apart. Then Ingrid gets a tip that leads her into the killer’s lair. She and Rick must choose between saving themselves or rescuing their love.

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

EXCERPT:

She arrived before the police had erected a tent around the victim, and even standing at the mouth of the alley, she could see the silhouette of a man reclining at an odd angle in the driver’s seat of a minivan.

A man murdered in his car. Just like the John Killings. Could the John Killer have returned to mark the year anniversary of his last murder? She tried to control her excitement. If it was the serial killer, this would be a huge story. And she just happened to be working that night.

Then that detective had shown up, wrenching her incredibly good luck to incredibly bad inside two minutes. She still didn’t even know the guy’s name. But maybe he wouldn’t be working the case. Maybe he was just on duty and got the callout, and maybe it wouldn’t matter if he was on the case. Her primary contact at the P.D. was media relations. Still, it was a bad break. Developing a personal relationship with detectives was the way to scoops. She didn’t need him possibly poisoning other cops against her.  

The coroner’s tech was photographing the body and the car. Detective Asshole was standing with folded arms, watching. Every now and then, he turned in her direction—checking on her. With her initial excitement fading to disillusion, a wave of tiredness overcame her. She wiped her forehead with her forearm. The air had cooled at this time of night, but it was still muggy. She trudged back to her car, posted a two-sentence brief online about a suspicious death in an alley north of downtown from her phone and headed home.

As she raced down the normally traffic-choked U.S. 1, she recalled that whole embarrassing video incident.  As Mel had predicted, she’d been hauled into Marlena’s office the next day to give her side of the story. Thankfully, Marlena had concluded that it wasn’t Ingrid’s fault. Why would an undercover operative be so reckless as to show up at a media conference? Still, Ingrid had been nervous that it would be held against her when she applied for the police beat, but it hadn’t. Neither did it seem to matter to Major Montoya when Ingrid had gone to the station to introduce herself as the new Star reporter. The only person who held the grudge was the detective, although he seemed to have landed pretty well if he was investigating homicides.

Despite being an asshole, he was cute, hot actually. But being an arrogant jerk seemed to be the required personality trait of good-looking men, as if they knew handsome guys were in short supply and acted accordingly. Still, Ingrid wondered whether something could’ve developed between them if the video thing hadn’t happened.

She had felt a frisson of … what exactly, attraction? … in that look they’d shared, and he must’ve rushed to get to the door before she left the press conference for a reason. She stopped herself. What-ifs were nothing but a trap of despair.  They didn’t bear thinking about.

She pulled into the driveway, tires crunching over the carpet of red berries fallen from the palm trees in her front yard. She was due back at work in a few hours for her regular day shift. She’d get some sleep and head back to follow up the homicide. If she could break the story that the John Killer had returned, and stay ahead on the story after that, maybe she could nab a promotion to a coveted slot on the investigative team. Then she’d never have to worry about running into Detective Asshole again.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW:


How did you come up with the title of your book or series?

In the Heat of the Tropics is set in the summer in Miami, which is a brutally long, hot and season so the title represents both the physical heat and the sensual heat between the two characters. I love the word “tropic.” It conjures up a lot of great romantic, sensual images. Technically, though, Miami/South Florida is a subtropical climate zone. The mainland US does not have any actual tropical zones. However, “subtropic” just does not have the same sexy ring as “tropic.” So I took a little dramatic license!


Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular design?

It was designed by a fabulous cover artist at Melange Books, my publisher—Caroline Andrus. I specifically requested her because I love her work. She always does really top notch covers. The backdrop is a skyline of Miami Beach at sunset, which generates a warm palette of colors—great for a romance! Then we have the scantily clad couple, which gives an idea of the heat level of the story. I saw it and thought it would definitely stand out on the shelf!


Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series:
I had a weird case of life imitating art with this book. I used to be a reporter in Los Angeles, and several years ago I got to do a ride-along with a police sergeant named Rick.as part of an assignment. (A ride-along is when police take citizens out on a tour to see what police work is like.) As we’re driving around, I suddenly realized I was actually living a scene from my book, when Rick takes Ingrid out on a ride-along! I told the sergeant of my weird déjà vu. He smiled but he didn’t seem to really appreciate it. I think he thought it was a unique way of hitting on him!

Do you have any unique talents or hobbies?
Other than reading and writing books, my other passion is travelling. I’ve travelled to about sixty-five countries and I’ve hit every continent. I love other experiencing and learning about other cultures and histories. I’ve still got so many places on my bucket list to visit. Sometimes I think I should just throw a backpack on and hit the road for a while to get to as many as I can!

What's the strangest thing you have ever had to research online for your book?
I had to research alligators, which are very common in Florida. Anywhere there’s water, there’ll be a gator lurking somewhere. Tucker, the killer in the book, lives in the Everglades, where of course there are tons of gators. He poaches them for skins and eats the meat (I’ve heard it tastes like chicken!). So I had to research state laws about alligator hunting, alligator nesting seasons, alligator behavior in hurricanes and storms, as well as which law enforcement agency is in charge of enforcing these laws. It was kind of an odd thing for a romance novel, but I aim to get the details right!


What can we expect from you in the future? What are you working on now?

I’m working on another romantic suspense, titled “Angel’s Lust,” which will be more of a mystery rather than a thriller that is “In the Heat of the Tropics.” “Angel’s Lust” is set in Los Angeles, which besides being the home of Hollywood, but it’s also the home the adult entertainment industry, which is the backdrop for the mystery. The love story is between two homicide detectives competing to solve the suspicious death of an executive that is linked to the adult entertainment industry. The case deepens into sex trafficking and an unsolved murder.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

Tell other readers! Either personally or through reviews. Authors appreciate honest reviews and feedback, including criticism as long as it’s respectful, but there’s no need to be cruel or nasty. We know everyone is not going to like everything so it takes courage to put our work out in public for judgment. Think how you would like having your own job performance made public! So we really appreciate it when people take the time to spread the word when they do enjoy it.


Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?
Don’t give up!  It’s a long, rocky journey to publication and after that, to publishing success. There are few, if any, overnight sensations in this business. You really have to keep at it, out of drive and passion, despite rejection. Rejection is part of the journey. Don’t let it derail you.
