SEAL My Home

by Sharon Hamilton
Blurb: 

 

Bad boy Rory Kennedy was raised in foster care, bouncing in and out of trouble along the way. He finds his true family and real brothers as a Navy SEAL, one of the Navy’s elite warriors. When his BUD/S instructor barked the SEAL’s Motto: Only Easy Day Was Yesterday, he knew he had found home.
Megan Palmer works in a bookstore and finds her passion in life through reading steamy romance novels. Her brief affair with a man she later found out was married has left her damaged, until she meets the handsome SEAL, who stands ready to open her world and give her things she’s only dreamed.
On a skiing trip, Rory suffers a possible career-ending injury and also comes face to face with a past he never knew of, and a family who had abandoned him. His relationship with Megan is tested to the breaking point as Rory wades through the dark waters of recovery and whether or not he can live without the life he loves. A home-grown terrorist cell forces his hand and he discovers his true purpose.

Excerpt

Whatever she’d bottled up had come loose. Her appetite met her need, which should have scared him. But for the first time, he wanted her to need him. He could fill he up. She was starving for it.
And so was he.
She was sleeping, and he fell into her rhythm, inhaling when she did, exhaling also in tandem, feeling her soft sex crowning his thigh. He thought of all the lovely things he wanted to say to her, but knew he shouldn’t. He knew the speaking part would mess up what he now felt, something he rarely felt.
 
Happiness.
He tried to breathe without making a sound, hoping that this time together, which was as precious to him as the love making part, was prolonged for as long as possible. She was fire and ice. The salt and the caramel. She tucked inside the hard exterior of his soul and shivered, rested there under his protection.
He must have twitched or done something, because she startled and rose up quickly, rolling to the side and covering herself up. He could almost feel her heavy thoughts tossing about the room as he viewed her light pink spine glowing in the near moonlight as she sat on the edge of the bed away from him. An inch of her butt crack was in shadow, but the alabaster surface of her skin was flawless and made her look like a statue.
He inhaled without a sound, and let his index finger trace down the middle of her back, traveling over the ridges of her vertebra. She stiffened at first, then rolled her head to the side and killed him with the blue gaze that showed him she was still hungry.
“Come here, Megan,” he said, worried he’d been a little too loud.
She touched her shoulder with her ear in a shy move that belied her real feelings for him. He could see it in the coral shaded corners of her lips, how they quirked up at the ends.

GIVEAWAY! KATIE IN LOVE by Chloe Thurlow!

GIVEAWAY! KATIE IN LOVE
by Chloe Thurlow!

Joyfully Reviewed is excited to welcome Author Chloe Thurlow’s latest release,

KATIE IN LOVEkatieinlove

Katie Boyd has nothing in common with Tom Bridge, the volunteer doctor she meets at a party – except in bed she finds a passion to match her own. Tom is intense, puzzling, a man who cares about others and compels Katie to question her own life drifting through the hip clubs and London party scene.

When Tom returns to his post in a Sri Lanka orphanage, Katie isn’t sure if their passion was lit by its brevity, or if love, unexpected and not entirely wanted, has edged its way into her life. Should she go back to being who she always was? Or follow Tom into the unknown?

Katie in Love is a compelling erotic-romance that will grip readers as they follow Katie’s journey to an ending they may have expected – but not in the way they expected it.

Brilliantly written and coolly self-aware, Chloe Thurlow was described by KM Dylan on Amazon as “…the Anaïs Nin of our times.” With Katie in Love  – her sixth novel – Thurlow reveals a writer at the height of her powers.

Katie in Love: Painting by Numbers

I have always thought of writers as right-brained artists inspired by daydreams and fantasy. When I finished Katie in Love, my new novel, it dawned on me that writing is a left-hemisphere calling: planning, logic, a painting by numbers.

Storytelling is governed by 3 acts, and you will be hard-pressed to find a great novel or movie that falls outside this paradigm:

  • the present; normal life moving towards a point of crisis;
  • overcoming that crisis and reaching new understandings culminating in a major turn of events;
  • resolution, often birth (or rebirth), marriage (or divorce) or death, literal, as in dying, or a major change that solves the initial crisis ie: suicidal housewife overcomes all difficulties to become an opera singer and saves her marriage.

All stories follow this 3-part formula: boy meets girl, boy and girl are torn apart, boy and girl resolve the problem – Romeo and Juliet in death; Jane Austin’s characters in marriage; Diane Keaton becomes a mom in Baby Boom.

The Rule of 3 applies to granting wishes in fairy tales; the mountain climber reaches the summit the third time he sets out, usually in the worst of all conditions; Goldilocks in the house of the Three Bears finds a comfortable bed on the third attempt.

Scenes that progress a story should go through the same sequence: conflict, action to resolve the conflict, resolution of conflict, creating a fleeting equilibrium that will turn again to conflict – the oil and essence of  fiction.

Katie in Love is a romance, threaded through with glints of erotica. It explores the theory of everything I have ever thought about, and what I am thinking about now, in a world where there is danger everywhere and even falling in love seems risky and perilous.

Writing a new novel takes you from crisis to crisis until you come to the end of the third act and publication feels like reincarnation. Katie in Love is my painting by numbers: 13 months to write, it contains 80,000 words and fits 250 pages in the 9×6 format.

The paperback is matt-finish and silky to the touch, the last detail grabbed from the right-hemisphere because our brains have a revolving door connecting the two sides and writers are poets as well as mathematicians.


chloe thurlow

Chloe Thurlow started writing erotica after being seduced by her tutor at Cambridge. She lives in East London, sometimes Barcelona, works periodically as a teacher, occasionally as a waitress at corporate events where masters of the universe drink buckets of champagne and fall over. She hates bankers. Before writing Katie in Love, Chloe penned five novels she grandly calls ‘The Girl Quintet’ – The Secret Life of Girls, A Girl’s Adventure, Trade Girl, The Gift of Girls and Being A Girl.

Joyfully Reviewed welcomes Author Skye Jordan and her latest release THE RISK!

The Risk

 

From New York Times bestselling author Skye Jordan, Xtreme Heroes is a brand new series starring super-hot extreme athletes and their adventures.

 

The Risk, Book 1:

 

Former Olympian turned physical therapist to the elite Julia Bailey knows all about pushing the limits. But when a sexual harassment suit costs her a dream job—not to mention her reputation—she takes on the biggest risk of her life. Rehabilitating the X Games’ most notorious bad boy might be just what she needs to secure the funds for her own treatment center. Problem is, the only kind of recovery her new client is interested in is under-the-covers freestyle—gear optional.

 

Daredevil snowboarder Noah Hunt is a rock star—on and off the slopes. A recent accident might have him down, but he’s far from out. He doesn’t care what the sexy therapist with the sweet curves says. He’s got sponsors to impress and trophies to collect, and taking things slow and steady just ain’t his style. A little dirty talk and a sizzling night later, Julia learns just how fast and hard he likes to play. Too bad for him, his heart goes all in, and one wrong move could cost him more than just his career.
