Take a Walk on the Wild Side! 20 Authors Giving Away 200 Books + Readers Challenge & Giveaways

New Genre Contest Graphic  
How It Works

This challenge starts on July 2nd, and ends on July 30th, so you have a month to get reading.  

PERSUADE US . . . We're all different and what we like to read is no exception. However, sometimes it's fun to change things up a bit and try something new. We're going to help with that, by giving the first 200 lucky readers to ask us an ebook for free. All we ask is that the book they request is in a genre they don't read, or read a long time ago and drifted out of. Each participating author will offer ten books for free (we'll give you a list of what's available). But if you don't manage to get in fast enough and there aren't any books left, don't worry, you're still eligible for the Take a Walk on the Wild Side contest. Find a book in a new-to-you genre, whether at the library, from a friend, or if you want to support the wonderful authors involved in this contest by buying one of their books, so much the better! Read the book—the contest runs for four weeks, so you've got time—then write a paragraph on the contest's Facebook group about what surprised and delighted you about the genre you just read. You can also include a short paragraph on the genre you usually read and why you love it. Help convince other readers to give a new genre a try! We're going to encourage people to like the paragraphs that inspired them to read a new genre, and the five entries with the most likes will go to a well-known book blogger (with names redacted) to choose the winner of the $200 gift card.  

BE A CHATTERBOX . . .

This is one place where being a chatterbox will get you sent to the top of the class, not to detention. We want people talking about the books they're reading, swopping recommendations, and generally connecting over new genres, so we've got a $50 gift card prize to the person who interacts the most on the Facebook group. Good luck, everyone, this is going to be a lot of fun! And here are the amazing authors involved in sponsoring this contest:

 Marilyn Brant
Robin Bielman
Kelsey Browning
Zoe Dawson
Michelle Diener
Cynthia Eden
Jennifer Estep
Misty Evans
Maggie Mae Gallagher
Lori Handeland
Mary Hughes
Shona Husk
Rachel Johns
Dale Mayer
Nancy Naigle
Christina Phillips
Edie Ramer
Elle J Rossi
Barbara Samuel
Therese Walsh

We'll be posting a profile on each author and the books they have made eligible for the giveaway on the Read a New Genre Facebook group on July 2nd. As stated above, the first ten people to request the books on offer will get them for free, thereafter, participants will have to source their own books, either from the library, a friend, or if they'd like to support one of the authors sponsoring this contest, so much the better! Only one free book request per person, so as many readers as possible can benefit.

"A Sexy Bodyguard, a Gorgeous Heiress & Plenty of Heat!" #MySexySaturday HOLD ME UNTIL MIDNIGHT


Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday, where Jackson and Scarlett, from my recent release Hold Me Until Midnight, are close to admitting they've finally found The One.



He growled. God, that was hot. “I’m going to make you pay for that later.”

“Oh yes?” Please. “How’re you going to do that?”

“On your knees…”

She clutched his arm before her knees gave way. “In your dreams.” And mine.

“You’ll be begging for it.”

It was hard not to beg for it right now. “You’re a very bad man, Jackson Grayson.”

His grin stole whatever was left of her heart. “It’s going to be a very long evening.”
 

"This short romance has it all - a sexy bodyguard, a gorgeous heiress and plenty of heat!" Fresh Fiction






Every good girl loves a very bad boy…

Scarlett Ashford needs a date for her father’s wedding. Only she doesn’t just need a guy in a suit—she needs a bodyguard. The only problem is that Jackson Grayson is big and gorgeous and way too sexy. So much so that Scarlett’s tempted to let this hot bad boy ruin her oh-so-good reputation…

Jackson doesn’t do relationships and he certainly doesn’t sleep with clients. Yet he can’t fight their inconvenient attraction, or how badly he wants Scarlett’s warm and wicked curves against his body. He wants her. Now. Even if it’s just for one night, and even if walking away the next morning isn’t as easy as he thought.

Besides, one hot and incredibly intense night between a bad boy and a pampered princess could never turn into something real…could it?

Release Day for HOLD ME UNTIL MIDNIGHT #MySexySaturday Bad Boy Bodyguard





Big welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday, when it's all about the boy next door :-)

My Grayson Brothers series from Entangled Brazen is all about the boys next door - Alex, Jackson and Cooper, who had it tough growing up. Jackson, the middle brother and hero of my recent release, Hold Me Until Midnight, spent four years as a street fighter when he was a teen - and has the scars to prove it.

He doesn't believe in love or happily-ever-after, and definitely doesn't think Scarlett Ashford, the beautiful socialite who hires him to accompany her to her father's wedding, could change his mind.

But looks can be deceptive and Jackson is about to fall from a very great height :-)

This scene is when Jackson's asked Scarlett to come to his office so he can return her check to her. After a bit of small talk, she tells him their plan worked and the sleazeball hounding her, who wouldn't take no for an answer, has finally backed off.

Jackson says...




“Glad to have been of assistance.”
The tip of her tongue peeked between her lips. She appeared to be considering her reply. He tried not to focus on her mouth because that brought up all sorts of memories he was trying so hard to forget. Easier said than done.
“Although…” Scarlett paused, and he finally managed to look her in the eye again. “There is one area in which I feel you didn’t quite deliver.”
Shock punched through him. Of all the things he might have imagined Scarlett to say, that had definitely not been on his shortlist.
“I didn’t deliver?” What the fuck was she talking about? As if to mock the way he was trying to obliterate the memories from the weekend, he recalled her breathy gasps and the way her body had quivered when she came.
His dick stirred. Hell. That’s what this was. Pure hell. He should’ve stuffed the check in the mail and left it at that.
 “You promised I would scream. And I didn’t.”

He always keeps his promises...HOLD ME UNTIL MIDNIGHT #MySexySaturday



Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday! There's only three days until the release of my sexy contemporary, Hold Me Until Midnight, and today I'm sharing 7 words (I honestly didn't realise a tiny 8th word had sneaked in until after I posted this - sorry!!!!) This snippet comes after Jackson promised Scarlett he'd make her scream as she came. For reasons she's not sharing with him, Scarlett held back...oh he's going to make her pay for that :-)

“I can do dirty.” He breathed the words against her ear. “I just don’t do the dancing.” #MySexySaturday HOLD ME UNTIL MIDNIGHT



Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday. I'm sharing seven sexy paragraphs from my upcoming release, Hold Me Until Midnight, out on 9th June. Scarlett hired Jackson to be her fake date at her father's wedding, and in this snippet they both realize it's harder than they thought to keep their hands off each other :-) 



“Fancy stuff?” There was a faintly mocking note in her voice. “Like Dirty Dancing you mean?”
He slid his hands over the curve of her hips. It didn’t help his resolve to keep things purely professional between them.
His jaw grazed the soft skin of her cheek. “I can do dirty.” He breathed the words against her ear. “I just don’t do the dancing.”
So much for keeping it professional.
She edged a little closer. Without his meaning to, his hands slipped and he cupped her ass. Lust spiked through his groin. God, that was the wrong move to make. She fit him perfectly. With a silent curse he molded her waist instead.
“I can do the dancing.” Scarlett’s whisper was husky. “Looks like we’re evenly matched, Jackson.”
He tried not to think about all the dirty things he’d like to do to her. With a primitive growl he tugged her tight against his body. She gasped, whether at the way he held her or because she could feel his dick digging into her, he wasn’t sure.

"Major tongue penetration might be required." Bad boy bodyguard HOLD ME UNTIL MIDNIGHT #MySexySaturday


Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday. I'm sharing seven sexy paragraphs from my upcoming release, Hold Me Until Midnight, out on 9th June :-) In this scene Scarlett Ashford is in the process of hiring Jackson Grayson to be her fake date at her father's wedding. Jackson decides to have a little fun with her, and wants to know exactly how far this masquerade can go :-)





“Yeah. I take it holding hands is okay. What about wrapping my arm around your waist when we dance?”
“Uh.” Scarlett looked as if he’d just sucker-punched her. “I guess that would be acceptable.”
“And kissing? Will that be cheek contact only, a brief touch of the lips, or major tongue penetration?”
Grayson 1, Ashford 0.
 “Major tongue penetration might be required. Does your standard fee cover it, or would that incur hazard pay?”
He gave her a slow grin, not bothering to hide his interest. She’d thrown down the gauntlet.
Grayson 1, Ashford 1.

Every good girl loves a very bad boy... HOLD ME UNTIL MIDNIGHT #MySexySaturday



Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday. I'm sharing seven sexy paragraphs from my upcoming release, Hold Me Until Midnight, out on 9th June :-)



He grunted and grasped her ass, hauling her against him so she could feel how happy he was already. She gave a muffled giggle and wriggled in his arms.
“Did you just bring me in here to torture me?” Not that I’m complaining. If she wanted to prolong the agony until they were alone tonight he’d play the game.
“You tell me. Is this torture?” She slid down his body until she knelt on the towel at his feet. He stared at her, his mouth dry and heart pounding. Was she going down on him? Here?
When she tugged on his zipper he slammed his hand over hers. “Christ, Scarlett. I’ve dreamed about having you on your knees sucking my cock, but not in your dad’s house.”
She licked her lips, taking her sweet time about it, and looked up at him through her lashes in a way that made him groan.
“If you want me to stop, just say the word.” She popped his button and the relief was overpowering. “I don’t think you want me to, do you?” She grasped his length, and he wrapped his hand around hers, increasing the pressure. “But I wouldn’t want to do anything that makes you uncomfortable.”
Despite his discomfiture, he laughed. “Liar. You love it.”

One Night Stand/ Bad Boy Hero HOLD ME UNTIL MIDNIGHT @BrazenBooks #MySexySaturday






Welcome to this week's My Sexy Saturday where this week's theme is Sexy Me Down :-) I'm sharing seven sentences from my upcoming Brazen release, Hold Me Until Midnight, which is hitting the cyber shelves on 9th June.

In this snippet Jackson and Scarlett have just enjoyed a scorching no strings attached one-night-stand. But now it's the morning after the night before and while Jackson's had plenty of hook ups, this is a first for Scarlett and she's not too sure how to handle it :-)


Jackson didn’t just have a talented tongue. He had a talented… everything.
It was only when he touched her shoulder that she realized how long she’d been daydreaming about him. She raised her head.
