Responsible Adult Series Blurb Blitz

Blurb:
The Responsible Adult series follows bad boy Micky O’Neill as he attempts to better his life to bring up his disabled little brother. A past full of juvenile delinquency and living in a small town rife with idle gossip means Micky struggles to be seen as anything other than a no-hoper from the wrong side of the tracks... until he takes a job at the local supermarket and meets his boss, Dan, a university graduate and self-proclaimed shy, awkward bookworm.

Dan, older and burned from a past relationship, is the one person who sees through Micky’s tough-guy facade to the true heart underneath. With fear and mistrust on both sides, the two must steer their way through a complicated relationship where outside forces are determined to break them up at every turn.

Responsible Adult is a series about growing up and learning that love always brings responsibility.


Book One - Misdemeanor:
Love isn’t always responsible

After his mother tragically dies and his deadbeat father goes off the rails, nineteen-year-old Micky is left to care for his disabled little brother, Flynn.

Juggling college, a dead-end job and Flynn’s special needs means Micky has to put his bad-boy past behind him and be the responsible adult to keep his brother out of care. He doesn’t have time for anything else in his life.

Until he meets Dan…


Excerpt:
Dan froze. He couldn’t move. He meant to have walked back out of the locker room as soon as he’d given Micky the key, but his previously keen legs were now finding it hard to take him anywhere. It wasn’t so much the body that had him grounded—the body was an absolute delight in itself, no doubt about that, and it was a close toss-up as to what Dan had appreciated more today, the apple pie consumed earlier or the fine specimen of male stripping down to his boxers in front of him right then.

Micky had defined muscles with smooth white skin and was stockier than he appeared with his jumper on. But what had Dan stuck to the floor, mouth gaping in a shocking display of corporate unprofessionalism, was the large tattoo etched down Micky’s right side torso. A black Celtic dragon. The triangle point of the tail started at his hip bone and the rest of the black ink drew out the sketched mythical beast, ending with a triangle tongue at just above his pectoral line. It was a work of art and something Dan had never laid eyes on before. He discovered his eyes quite liked it and didn’t want to look at anything else ever again.

Micky caught the stare and shuffled his feet.

“My mum was Welsh,” he heard Micky say, possibly by way of explanation and even more probably because this wasn’t the first time he had been gawked at after taking off his top. Nor, Dan doubted, would it be the last.

Author Bio and Links:
Brought up in a relatively small town in Hertfordshire, C F White managed to do what most other residents try to do and fail—leave.

Studying at a West London university, she realised there was a whole city out there waiting to be discovered, so, much like Dick Whittington before her, she never made it back home and still endlessly searches for the streets paved with gold, slowly coming to the realisation they’re mostly paved with chewing gum. And the odd bit of graffiti. And those little circles of yellow spray paint where the council point out the pot holes to someone who is supposedly meant to fix them instead of staring at them vacantly whilst holding a polystyrene cup of watered-down coffee.

She eventually moved West to East along that vast District Line and settled for pie and mash, cockles and winkles and a bit of Knees Up Mother Brown to live in the East End of London; securing a job and creating a life, a home and a family.

After her second son was born with a rare disability, C F White’s life changed drastically and brought her pen back to paper after she’d written stories as a child but never had the confidence to show them to the world. Now, having embarked on this writing journey, C F White cannot stop. So strap in, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Menage in Paradise Book Blast

Blurb:
Ian has wanted Olivia from the moment they first met. They shared a torrid one-night-stand in Scotland a year prior and never spoke of it again. Now they are business partners, and Ian has plans to woo Olivia back into his bed permanently.

Eric Thomas is a drummer from the superstar rock band, The Harbingers. When he meets Olivia, he knows there’s something different about her. He wants her – and not just for the night.

But when the two Doms cause a stir with their antics on Pleasure Island as they each attempt to win Olivia, they will be forced to contemplate another means of attaining their prize. Can they convince Olivia to experience the fantasy of a ménage with them? And will what happens on Pleasure Island stay that way?

Publisher’s Note: While this steamy ménage is part of the bestselling Pleasure Island series, it can be read and enjoyed on its own.


Excerpt:
Adrift and unsteady, he braced himself against the swells as the ferry moved through the cobalt waves like a hungry sea creature.

Eyes shielded behind a pair of aviator sunglasses, Eric surveyed the rest of the passengers aboard Goddess of the Sea. In addition to their boat captain, Deke, a Dom with the bearing of a boxer, there were four couples present on deck whom, after a quick perusal when they first arrived, he had ignored.

He wasn’t intentionally being an ass. Not this time.

As the drummer in an internationally known rock band, maintaining anonymity was difficult at best. Out in public, even on the way to an exclusive resort catering to the BDSM lifestyle, Eric tempered his interactions with people. It was safer that way. Then he didn’t have to worry about it ending up in the tabloids.

And on Pleasure Island, with the non-disclosure agreement every guest must sign, he could sue the pants off anyone who leaked information to the press.

Besides, out of everyone on board the vessel, it was the lone beauty on deck who captured his attention. The name of the ship, Goddess of the Sea, perfectly described the willowy blonde poised at the stern. In skinny jeans that accentuated her endlessly long, supple legs and a gauzy peasant top that rivaled the sea in color, she had seized his full attention.

He had to admit she was stunning. The way the sunlight illuminated the waves of her golden tresses that stopped mid-back made her look like a beacon, a shimmering gemstone. No man, no Dom worth his salt, would want to deny himself the pleasure of her company.

He’d done enough of that.

Denying himself. That stopped, now.

Eric’s intentions on Pleasure Island were simple. Find himself a submissive and fuck himself into a state of orgasmic bliss over the next two weeks. Hopefully one that he could maintain once he left the island.

Easy. Simple.

And, he prayed, the most effective cure for his malaise. Not to mention, it was doctor ordered: the fun, the frivolity to be had on the island, as a way to battle his misery.

And damn it all, he needed to feel happy. It had been too long since anything had stirred his lethargy. Not a stay at an exclusive facility in Switzerland to help his depression, where his bandmates believed he was getting it on with a ski instructor. Not all the accolades, fame or fortune that had come his way through The Harbingers’ success.

And he hated that it made him sound like a pansy ass wanker.

Over the next two weeks, on what was becoming the legendary Pleasure Island, he would soothe his battered soul and the depression surrounding him. And the beautiful woman standing all alone was a damned fine place to begin.

Birthday Presents VBT

Blurb:
For Tracey, life has become a nightmare. Kidnapped from a nightclub in Boulder, Colorado, brutalized and raped by the killer known as Crimson, he's held captive alongside Kyle, a young man Crimson keeps chained to his bed and is slowly torturing to death. Though Tracey manages to escape with Kyle's help, he is forced to leave Kyle behind.

Gene has never stopped looking for his brother Kyle, abducted from a nightclub seven months previously. The case breaks open when Tracey comes forward, claiming to have knowledge of the whereabouts of Crimson's hideout.

A manhunt begins, but Crimson's birthday has come and gone, and he will kill again.


Excerpt:
Gene knuckled his tired eyes and yawned audibly in the large room crammed with desks and files and very few detectives. No one came in on a Sunday unless absolutely necessary, or in his case, unable to stay away. His gaze wandered again to the closed door of the office on the far end of the room. Craig was in there with the rest of the Target Crime Team. He'd gotten a call a short time ago saying an eyewitness over in Pine Bluff had seen Kyle alive no less than two days ago. God.

Hope trembled in Gene's chest despite Craig's cautionary words that Kyle hadn't been found yet. But this was the closest they'd come since Kyle's disappearance last November. And Gene had the bastard's knife. Hopefully forensics could get something off it, fingerprints or a serial number, anything to link it to a name so they could track him.

He rubbed the back of his neck. Craig had been furious with him when he found out Gene had been prowling nightclubs again. But what was he to do? No one else was looking for Kyle. Craig claimed Gene jeopardized his investigation. Fuck that. Kyle was his brother and he wasn't about to give up on him. And Gene was careful, only going on his nights off. If he happened to stumble on the kidnapper…

The front entrance thumped open and he glanced in that direction, then dropped his gaze to the papers on his desk, scowling. Just what he needed… A low whistle from one of the detectives walking in made his blood boil.



Survivor Guilt and PTSD
Survivor Guilt: A mental condition that occurs when a person believes they have done something wrong by surviving a traumatic event when others did not. –Wikipedia

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: A mental disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event, such as sexual assault, warfare, traffic collisions, or other threats on a person's life. The disorder is characterized by three main types of symptoms:

  • Re-experiencing the trauma through intrusive distressing recollections of the event, flashbacks, and nightmares.
  • Emotional numbness and avoidance of places, people, and activities that are reminders of the trauma.
  • Increased arousal such as difficulty sleeping and concentrating, feeling jumpy, and being easily irritated and angered.  –Wikipedia

BIRTHDAY PRESENTS is the story of a serial killer who kidnaps and tortures his victims and the people fighting to stop him. Kyle is the young man he’s kept alive the longest, but Tracey escaped him, and we spend the story watching Tracey deal with his PTSD and learning how to have a ‘normal’ life once again.

Survivors Guilt:
"But you escaped," Andi prompted.

Tracey trembled head to foot, the horror coming back. "Sometimes Crimson would take off my cuff so I could help position Kyle. He likes to hurt him, I don't know why." Tears choked his voice and Tracey swallowed them down, needing to finish before the anguish tore him apart. "Crimson likes Kyle sobbing when he takes him." He drew a shaky breath. "Kyle's dying. We both knew it. So we made plans."

He found it hard to continue. "Crimson let me loose, then turned to Kyle. But that night we fought him. Kyle clawed at his face, I scratched his eye. I don't think he was aware of me when I slipped from the bed. Kyle looked at me, but then Crimson bit his collarbone. I still hear his screams."

Tracey covered his face as it all came back, and screamed into his hands, echoing Kyle's shrieks in his head. A red haze filled him mind. It would never be over! Sobbing, he couldn't catch his breath, and it was a long while before the softly spoken words of the counselor broke the chaos inside him.

PTSD:
1. Re-experiencing the trauma…
He'd begun to doze off, the uneasiness of a bad dream creeping up on him, when movement beside him startled him awake. God! What was it? He scrambled to sit up, terror momentarily blinding him. He'd fight Crimson off this time—

"Tracey! It's okay. You're safe."

What? The conference room swept back into focus. Daniel stood next to the couch while Gene looked at him in concern from the table. Shit. He rubbed his face with his hands, feeling sick.

"I'm sorry. I didn't know you'd fallen asleep," Daniel apologized, dismayed.

"Don't worry about it." Tracey rubbed his hands over his jeans, straightened his shirt. He must look a mess and he would kill for a shower and soft bed, anything to distract him from what was happening in the forest at that very moment.

2. Emotional numbness…
They didn't speak on the way to the parking lot, Tracey sliding into the passenger seat after Daniel unlocked the Jeep. Daniel took his place behind the steering wheel, heart thumping. "You don't have to do this," he said to Tracey's averted profile.

"Yes, I really do." Tracey looked at him and the bleakness in his eyes broke Daniel's heart. Then he squared his shoulders, taking a deep breath. "If I'm going out tonight, I'll need clothes and make-up. Will you loan me some money and a ride to Fort Collins? There's a store there with the best leathers."

"Of course." Daniel watched him, but Tracey's eyes skittered away and he stared out the side window. Daniel turned on the ignition and shifted the Jeep into gear, exiting onto the street. Of course Tracey distanced himself. Daniel had been expecting it. But he'd hoped it wouldn't come until much later in the evening.

3. Increased arousal such as difficulty sleeping and concentrating…
Tracey fingered the coat covering him. Daniel must have lain it over him at some point while he slept. He glanced at him and caught his worried expression. Daniel smiled encouragingly but Tracey let his gaze slide away. He absently scraped chipped nail polish from his thumb, watched the rose flakes drift to the floor. It was nice to have someone there, on his side, but he hoped the guy knew he'd have to settle for friendship. No one better fucking touch him.

He huddled under the borrowed coat as a sense of sadness and loss came over him. He wasn't the same person he had been three weeks ago. He missed the confident, sometimes conceited and bratty guy he'd been. The one who'd boldly painted these nails. Now he jumped at everything, always afraid, timid. He didn't like this person very much.

As you can see, Tracey has a long way to go, but with the support and love from his friends, he survives and slowly learns to relish life once again.

Lovesick Gods Excerpt Tour

Blurb:
The elements touch everyone on Earth—Fire, Water, even Light—but every so often someone becomes more attuned to their elemental leaning and develops true power. When an evil Elemental known as Thanatos arrived in Olympus City, it saw the rise of its first hero—Zeus. But the death toll caused by defeating Thanatos changed Zeus, who by day is young detective Danny Grant.

It’s been six months since Thanatos terrorized the city at the start of Lovesick Gods. Danny should be used to his duty behind the mask, but the recent past haunts him. His girlfriend left him, he snaps at the barest provocation, his life feels empty—he needs an outlet, any outlet to pull him out of his depression.

Enter notorious thief Malcolm Cho, the Ice Elemental Prometheus. There was a time when Danny welcomed a fight with Cho, filled with colorful banter and casual flirtations that were a relief compared to Thanatos. Even as a criminal, Cho had recognized the threat Thanatos posed and promised to help Danny stop him, but the day Danny needed Cho, he never showed. Cho was the reason so many people died that day—including Danny’s mother.

Danny decides to teach the man a lesson and fan the fire of their attraction into something more. At worst, he’ll get some no-strings-attached sex out of the deal and finally blow off steam; at best, he’ll get Cho to fall in love with him and then break his heart to spite him. Danny doesn’t expect to fall for Cho in the process, and he certainly can’t predict the much darker threat on the horizon.


Exclusive Excerpt:
Danny hissed as Lynn cracked his nose back into place, then handed him a damp cloth to wipe away the blood. She’d done the same for Camo first, cleaned him up as best she could so he’d be able to rest comfortably in one of the morgue’s store rooms until morning.

It might seem morbid that they held criminals in the precinct’s old morgue before transport to the Elemental wing, but it was the most secure place in the building, even more secure than the actual morgue.

The whole past year of Danny’s life had been built on coincidence. After the encounter with Thanatos that triggered his Elemental Awakening, he’d blinked out of his first lightning jump right outside the precinct. Crawling his way to a side door that was blessedly unlocked, he lay in the hallway unsure of what to do, while his heart rate seemed out of control and he could barely breathe as his powers stabilized.

That’s when Andre and Lynn had found him.

As a detective at the precinct, Danny knew them both, but only in passing—Andre Vaughn the CSI and Lynn Rivers the medical examiner. It wasn’t until that night when they happened upon Danny by accident that the three of them became close.

Everyone on earth was element leaning toward something—Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Lightning, Light, Dark, or Metal. In some cases there were even specialties, like Water people focused on Ice or Earth people communing more with seismic occurrences than plants. For most people that meant trivial things. The color of their eyes that marked them at birth, and maybe, if they were lucky, they’d get some resistance to or benefit from their element, like a Water person being able to breathe underwater longer or someone Air leaning growing into an elegant dancer.

Only a handful of the population had true abilities, powers tied to their element that stood them above the rest. In Olympus City, Malcolm Cho’s father had been the only notable Elemental for years, until the Titans themselves and a few stragglers like Camouflage came along.

Then Thanatos had come. Then Zeus had been born. Then everything…changed.

The One Apart VBT

BLURB:
Only one obstacle stands in his way of enjoying a normal life. He remembers—every life he's lived before.

Tres is about to be born... with the biggest burden any has ever had to bear. He is beginning again—as an ageless adult trapped in an infant body.

He and his teenage mother face life filled with extraordinary challenges as they strive to protect, nurture, and hide how truly different he is. But Tres alone must solve the greatest mystery of all: who is he? The answer is linked to the one question he's too afraid to ask: why am I?

In his quest, Tres discovers that all is considerably more interconnected and dynamic than he could ever imagine—and fraught with far more danger. He cannot hide from the unseen threat stalking him since his birth.

Life as he knows it—as all know it—is in peril. And Tres is the only one aware.


Excerpt:
Tres felt his body abruptly drop around him with overbearing weight, encapsulating him once again.

The mental images, the overpowering memories, finally faded. Only an ominous stillness remained.

Every cell within him began to twitch, infusing with energy—even as he felt immobile. Every joint, tendon, and bone ached under the pressure of being alive.

A deep sadness engulfed him. He pondered possible reasons. And, just as quickly, he was distracted by the presence of his own simple thoughts.
Thoughts. He realized his own thinking.

This mind—certain of its own newness—desired to explore, feel, do, be. Tres opened his eyes—tried to open his eyes. He found his eyelids fused shut.

He opened his mouth. Thick, warm syrup seeped inside his swallow. Intense fear washed over him, even as he knew exactly where—and how—he was.

Oh, no.

Tres was aware, more aware than any had ever been. In this moment, he knew everything—and yet, nothing.

He was beginning again.

Anna Ellis Author Tour

Blurb for Touch:
What happens when you meet the man of your dreams…and his wife?

Kenna has spent the last two years since her divorce alone, focusing on her writing and not giving the lack of romance in her life much thought. She hasn’t missed the touch of others until she meets Iliya.

Iliya is beautiful, vivacious and confident and Kenna is drawn to her immediately. When she meets Iliya’s husband, Kenna is torn. Iliya and Del are warm and friendly and welcome Kenna into their life, but Kenna is guilty about the feelings she develops for the couple, feelings that are more than friendship. Feeling for Del…and for Iliya.

Kenna doesn’t know what to do about the attraction she feels for Del and Iliya…until Iliya confesses she feels the same way. So does Del.

Iliya tells Kenna they aren’t like other married couples and they want to include Kenna in their life.

Is this what Kenna wants? Can she handle the touch of others?


Excerpt from Touch:
I lose all track of what Jane is saying as I watch him walk towards us, thewarmth of my cheeks increasing with every step. My stomach clenches like a fist and I have trouble catching my breath. The flicker of recognition I have is ignored by my more visceral reactions.

 “Ladies.” His voice is better than dipping your finger in warm melted chocolate and licking it off.  “Nice walk?” He blinks sleepily at us, with the most beautiful green eyes I’ve ever seen. I have green eyes the colour of moss in a damp forest; these eyes are more emerald and such a contrast with his dark bronze skin that the effect is breath-taking.
He is breath-taking.

He’s also half-asleep, still dressed in flannel pajama pants. I have a sudden, vivid image of him lounging in a huge bed, pillows strewn about, and sheets tangled around his long legs, leaning over…

Something stretches inside me, woken from a long sleep.

“It makes it all the more worthwhile when you’re here to meet us at the end,” Jane says with a perky smile. It’s not just me who has been affected; Jane is standing straighter with the hint of the belly sucked in and the size B cup boobs thrust out. This guy has some sort of power if he’s got me…

This is Iliya’s husband.

My heart sinks as fast and hard as a rock thrown in the ocean and all I can think of that line from the Alanis Morrisette song, “Meeting the man of your dreams and meeting his beautiful wife.”



Anna, thanks so much for stopping by. So, how did you get started writing?
I’ve always wrote, ever since I was a little girl. But as for what I write now – I was writing a women’s fiction novel and I noticed a certain scene was a little too steamy. So, I thought, why not give it a try?  I ended up writing Making Friends, and things just took off from there.


What was the inspiration for your book?
A few years ago, there was a group of neighbours who would spend Friday nights together. We’d have dinner, drink lots of wine. I got to thinking about how we were all such good friends – what if we took it one step further. Voila – my swinging series was born!


What’s the one genre you haven’t written in yet that you’d like to?
I would love to write historical fiction. I was a history major and I just love it.


Are there any genres you won’t read or write in? Why?
There’s not much I won’t read. I’m not much for literary fiction, but I’m not opposed to reading it. I don’t think I’d ever try to write science fiction. I love to read it, but I think the technological descriptions would be beyond me!


What are you up to right now? Do you have any releases planned, or are you still writing?
The second book in the Adults Only series, Room Service will be out next month!  I’m just putting the finishing touches on it, and starting with the third one.  I’m also looking at writing a little short novelette about the characters in my Touch series for a spring release.


Alright, now for some random, fun questions. Favorite color? 
Purple. Or red.


Favorite movie?
I really hate this question because there are so many movies that I love!! Because I’m such a Star Wars fan, I have to say Empire Strikes Back. And I love some of the Marvel movies. But for my favourite, non- franchise movie, I’d say The Italian Job. The remake, the one with Mark Wahlberg. I just love him!


Book that inspired you to become an author?
Stephen King’s On Writing. Every writer should read it. But the person who inspires me is Joss Whedon. I think he’s a brilliant writer.


You have one superpower. What is it?
I’d want to fly, or super-strength.  Can I have both?


You can have dinner with any 3 people, dead, alive, fictitious, etc. Who are they?
Joss Whedon, Stephen King and George Lucas. I would have a list of questions to ask, but I don’t think I’d talk much!


Last question: Which of your characters are you most like and how/why?
I think I’m most like Paige, in my Husbands and Wives series. She’s probably the most normal and the least sexiest, although she’ sexy in her own way!


That’s all from me, thanks for taking the time to stop by!
Thank you so much for having me!!


Don’t forget to visit the other stops on the tour.
