Synopsis:

Twenty-three-year-old Camryn Singer never imagined that she would return to the place

where she lost everything. To grant a dying wish, she moves back to the small Jersey beach

town where she grew up, hoping to somehow find the missing pieces of her life. Determined to

keep her wounds unopened and her heart guarded, she instead slams head-first into Cole Stevens.

Sexy surfer Cole has always used the waves to numb the pain of his past. But when he

runs into Camryn on the beach one day, he wants nothing more than for her to heal his scars and

light the spark back in his life.

Will Camryn and Cole be ripped apart when the ghosts from their pasts come back to

life, or will they discover that it’s not until you’re lost, that you can be found?

Author Bio:
I am a middle school teacher who recently traded in my chalk for a laptop to follow

my dream of writing contemporary romance novels. I live with my husband and two

daughters in the suburbs of Philadelphia. When I’m not writing, I spend my time reading

and relaxing with my family at my home-away-from-home, the Jersey shore.

After I graduated from Villanova University in 2003, I never imagined my path would

lead me in this direction. Writing was a hobby, an outlet for me to live in a world of

happily ever afters. Now as I watch my dream become a reality, I believe that happy

endings do exist.

Excerpt:

I pulled his mouth back to mine, and ran my hands through his hair, weaving the

ends through my fingers. Although lust was pumping through my veins, I pushed it aside,

taking this moment to just feel his mouth against mine. We had time for the rest, and for

the first time in over five years, I was finally living in the present.

We stayed in each other’s arms for a long time, watching the waves ripple across

the rocks, and the seagulls touch down to peck the water for fish. I could feel our bodies

finally surrender to a sense of calmness. Although we still had so much to learn about

each other, and many more fears to face, we found a way to take that first step, and would

journey the rest of the way together.

This feeling of contentment and satisfaction was so new and refreshing. I finally

saw a beginning, rather than an end. Everyone started walking toward the back deck,

while I took one more look out toward the vast stretch of sand. This beach town has held

the origin of my fears and the depth of my heartache. But today, it represented the birth

of my new life, one that included Cole. However, looking toward the water’s edge, my

elation was stripped from me, as I stood staring into the aqua-colored eyes of my greatest

fear.

Promo: Only Love Survives by Renee Charles

20131114-230638.jpg

20131114-230653.jpg
Amidst an epidemic ravaging the world, all Megan Fletcher’s hopes for the future lie in getting to Las Vegas where newscasts reported scientists were gathering to search for a cure for the modern plague. After rescuing her from a rooftop surrounded by Zombies, Sam Woods appoints himself her escort. While he knows she is determined to get to Vegas no matter the cost, he doesn’t know her secret. And with his hatred of all things Zombie, she doesn’t dare tell him the truth. The more he kisses her, the harder it is for Megan to hide her growing feelings…and the bite-shaped scar.
But Vegas is not the haven it was promised to be, and when Megan’s immunity to the disease is discovered, she realizes her future and her heart belong to Sam, if he will trust her. An idealistic school teacher and ex-corporate mogul manage to find love despite a looming worldwide catastrophe. Can their love survive while everything around them is dying? Will they learn that when facing the end of the world, Only Love Survives?
Available now!
EXCERPT:
A storm that spelled danger flashed across Sam’s face. He advanced on Megan so fast, she backed up against the side of the Suburban. Planting a hand firmly on each side of her, he pinned her with his arms as well as his gaze.
“What I want? Are you so hard headed you can’t tell what I want?” He covered her mouth with his lips and crushed her clever comeback with an assault on her senses.
Megan pushed him, but he didn’t budge. Instead, he continued to kiss her until her heart raced and cheeks flushed with need. All resistance melted and she succumbed to the warmth of his embrace. Her arms wound around his neck of their own accord pulling him closer while her tongue sought his in a passionate dance, completely ignoring what her heart wanted.
When he finally broke away leaving Megan breathless and wanting so much more, Sam put his forehead to hers and watched her mouth like a drunk watches amber liquid poured into a glass. “You,” he rasped. “I’ve wanted you since I found you hanging from that damn roof, and all our little encounter in the river did was add fuel to the fire.”

Bio:
Author, Renee Charles believes all love is legendary. Being the only female in a house full of giants (husband and two teenage boys) she tends to lean toward the strange and unusual, but inevitably the softer side shines through.
Whether life leads her to a snow covered mountain top, sun dappled forest, or the bottom of a ravine (yes, ditches happen) she always has a pen and note pad ready so wherever the next adventure takes her, she can take notes.
Her own romance began in an insane asylum. Luckily, both she and her husband only worked there. But it makes sense her romance novels have strange beginnings that lead to passionate endings. Romance with a dark twist.
In the face of zombies, werewolves, and big foot she always seems to find a happily ever after to leave you with a sigh at the end.

Review: Text by Cambria Hebert

SYNOPSIS

One text can change everything.

Honor Calhoun never thought her life would ever be like the books she writes for a living. One morning while out for a run, she learns not all bad things are plots in novels. Some horrors can actually come true.

She faces off with a persistent attacker, holds her own, but in the end is taken hostage and thrown into a hole. In the middle of the woods.

But Honor didn’t go down there alone.

She took her kidnapper’s phone with her. With a spotty signal and a dying battery, her hope is slim.

Nathan Reed is an active duty Marine stationed at a small reserve base in Pennsylvania. All he wants is a calm and uneventful duty station where he can forget the memories of his time in a war-torn country.

But a single text changes everything.

Nathan becomes Honor’s only hope for survival, and he has to go against the clock, push aside his past, and take on a mission for a girl he’s never met.

Both of them want freedom… but they have to survive long enough to obtain it.

***This is a new adult contemporary novel and contains sexual content and graphic language. It is not intended for young adult readers.***

My Review: 5 out of 5 stars
From the beginning I quickly fell in love with this story. In the beginning, we meet Honor. A sweet girl that just wants to take a nice jog. Unfortunately there is a terrible evil hiding out on the trail. A man takes her and throws her in a hole, far away from any hope of help. Thank goodness she was able to get ahold of his phone. That one piece of technology seems to be the line between life and death.

I have always loved Hebert’s books, and I could swear they keep getting better and better. It seems as each one is released it quickly becomes my favorite of her work. This one is no exception!

If you are looking for some major on the edge of your seat suspense mixed in with a hottie and some romance, you will love this book! What are you waiting for? Go grab your copy!

Teaser:

Nathan flashed a grin in the darkness. I longed to see him in the light. I wanted to know the angles and planes of his face. I wanted to take in his features and truly see the man who had literally saved my life.

Nathan seemed oblivious to my thoughts as I watched him tidy up the first aid kit. Before he put it on the floor, he glanced at me. “Where else are you hurt?”

“I won’t be requiring any more Band-Aids,” I quipped.

He turned to look at me fully. His hand closed over mine and he gently took the flashlight from my grasp and clicked it off. “What about your ribs?”

“I don’t think you have anything in that kit for them.”

“Let me see them.”

“Wh-what?” My mouth ran dry. He wanted to look under my shirt?

“I want to see them.”

“That’s not really necessary—”

He studied me and then thrust his hand out in the space between us. “Hey, I’m Nathan Reed. It’s nice to meet you.”

I wanted to laugh. We were a little beyond a formal introduction. But it was fun (hey, you try being kidnapped and beaten and see what you consider fun), so I slid my hand into his. “I’m Honor.”

He held my hand a little longer than he needed to, his thumb brushing over the inside of my wrist. I caught myself right before I started purring like a cat.

That would have been hella embarrassing.

“I’m a Staff Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. My favorite color is green, and I like football.”

“What are you doing?” I asked, thoroughly charmed by him.

“Formally introducing myself so you’ll let me under your shirt.”

I laughed. “I usually don’t let men I just met under my shirt.”

“I’m irresistible.”

I smiled. “And so modest.”
