Promo Tour: Cowboy Player by Mia Hopkins

Cowboy Player (Cowboy Cocktail #3) by Mia Hopkins

Date of Publication: June 28, 2016


This cowboy and cowgirl sell the steak and the sizzle.

Cowboy Cocktail, Book 3

For eight years, Melody Santos played the game of love and lost—big time. Now she's back in her tiny hometown looking after her younger sister, making ends meet with an assortment of odd jobs. When her childhood best friend hires her to help him sell his family's grass-fed beef, the last thing she anticipates is falling in lust with the legendary, brown-eyed player.

To put his family's cattle ranch back in the black, Clark MacKinnon has his sights set on big contracts—gourmet chefs and restaurateurs. If that means long hours traveling from farmer's market to farmer's market, Clark doesn't mind. Particularly since his new assistant is his childhood crush, all grown up and sexy as hell.

One night in bed leaves them breathless and hungry for more. But when his love-'em-and-leave-'em reputation collides with her trust issues, Clark and Melody must face the truth about what they've become: not friends, not lovers, but players in a game that's impossible to win.

Warning: Contains filthy banter, raunchy sex, excessive Johnny Cash references, and hundreds of pounds of raw beef.

Promo Tour: Beg For It by Megan Hart

Beg For It by Megan Hart

Date of Publication: June 14, 2016


He's gonna have to beg for it…

Corinne was young once. She did everything—girls, boys, drugs, toys—and did it in high funky fashion. Reese wasn't her first lover, but he was the first to submit to her. For a while they had something special, but it ended badly.

She's a little older now. And the wealthy businessman who just bought the company she works for bears little resemblance to that boy. He's commanding, domineering, and seems hell-bent on pushing her past her limits.

In a flash of anger, she falls back into their old pattern—and Reese falls right in with her. Before she knows it, she's testing him. Then tasting him. But she can't afford to get involved again. Her life is complicated enough without throwing in a slew of kink.

Now if only Reese would stop making her feel like the goddess she used to be…and showing her who's been the boss all along. Then…and now.

Warning: Contains thousand-dollar, custom-tailored business suits, fuzzy green boots, goth eyeliner, and fishnet sleeves. We'll let you discover who wears what.

EskieMama Reads Review: Up All Night by Michele Callahan

Up All Night
by Michele Callahan


Once upon a time Mitchell Walker fell in love...and trusted the wrong woman. That one mistake nearly cost him his future. His older brother, Derek, stepped in to take the fall. Mitchell has never forgiven himself for that day, and vowed to never trust another woman. 

Now he is a young, successful surgeon. Women throw themselves at his feet, and he gives them what they want, as long as they don't ask for his heart. The strategy is working well for him until he meets freelance reporter Jessica Finley. 

She's smart, she makes him laugh, and she sees right through his playboy persona. When Mitchell finds out she has links to the past he's tried so hard to forget, his life implodes, and Jessica is at the center of the detonation. 

Jessica's fire may burn hot enough to keep him up all night, but will her love be strong enough to burn away the ghosts of his past and melt the ice around his heart?

Review:                                5 Stars

Mitchel Walker a young Doctor who's past is holding him from his present and future. Enters Jessica Finley, oh my does she turn his neat world upside down.
But even Jessica has things that stop her from trusting, will the two young lovers be able to trust one another and declare their love for each other. The story was well writen, it had me laughing and giggling and even a few tears were shed. The author took me on a lovely trip and I look forward to reading her other books.

I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review!

Q & A with Michele Callahan about Up All Night

Tell us about Up All Night!
Up All Night is book 3 (of 4) in the Love You Like A Love Song series. BOOK 1 is FREE everywhere! (All the books have original songs written just for their romance. Seriously.) To check out the music go to and listen to the music. :)

What initially inspired you to write this book/series?
I sat down last November for the NaNoWriMo challenge (It’s a writing challenge during which the challenge is to write a complete book (or 50,000 words) during the month of November.) I was all set to work on my next science fiction/time travel and, instead, I sat down to write and this group of four adopted brothers started talking to me. They had just lost their mom to cancer and were having a hard time dealing with losing her. (I can totally relate because I lost my mom to breast cancer a few years ago.)
So, the Walker brothers started talking to me, and in the back of my mind their mother started talking, too. She told me she left them each a card, a very special card that she forced them to write when they were younger - a card that listed their innocent, childhood hopes and dreams. Her challenge to them was to promise her they would do their best to follow the dreams of their youth, to not lose sight of what they had once wanted so badly. And so, the love song books were born. These four brothers all meet their one true love as they are fulfilling that special promise to their mother.

Tell us little about the characters in Up All Night.
This book features the third brother, Mitchell Walker, who grew up to be a surgeon. He’s a second year surgical resident with no social life whatsoever. He fell in love when he was 18 and the girl betrayed him badly, breaking his heart and nearly destroying him. As a result, he has completely walled off his emotions and focused on his career.
Jessica Finley’s is a songwriter who had to quit playing music. She still writes for the band, but had to rebuild her life. Her father was a doctor, and both of her parents have been married and divorced multiple times. Her one rule for dating is NO DOCTORS. When her brother gets in a car accident and nearly dies, Mitchell is the surgeon who saves his life. From the first moment they meet, sparks fly. To make things work they will both have to throw out all of their rules and take a chance. Not an easy thing to do after so many years, and so many disappointments.

What was the hardest part of writing Up All Night?
My cousin is a doctor, and I talked to her about some of the most difficult things a doctor must face - doing everything they can to save someone, but losing the patient. I wanted to put a human face on that experience, that loss. I needed to show Mitchell’s all too human heart to the reader, and to Jessica. That scene was really difficult for me to write.

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
This is going to sound crazy, but I LOVE writing that first love scene, the moment all their barriers are broken and they decide to take a chance on one another. This book has some really smoking hot love scenes. When Mitchell finally falls in love, he falls hard.
That said, I LOVE the interaction between these four brothers. Any time they get together, the stuff that comes out of their mouths is hilarious. They don’t hold back, at all. They give each other so much shit, I’m laughing out loud as I write it down. I love these guys. They are incredibly real to me. I feel like I could walk down the street to a sports bar and sit down next to them. They are real. Very real. And very much men I’d be happy to fall in love with. I hope you all love them as much as I do.

What are your future project(s)?
I’m finishing up the final book, Make Me Forget, for the oldest brother, Derek. That is coming out next, and I can’t wait to share him with all of you. He’s the most complex of the four, and he’s been a real challenge for me because he’s so intense and doesn’t like to share - even with me.

Is there anything else you would like to tell the readers about this book/series?
These four brothers went through hell to survive and it made them strong, but closed off. It’s been an honor to help them find their way in the world and fall in love. Healing their hearts had felt like a personal privilege and I know you will fall in love with them, just like I did.

Now an exciting excerpt from Up All Night!

In this excerpt, Jessica takes Mitchell out to her sister’s club, keeping him on a “just friends” basis. But the “friend zone” isn’t working out very well, especially when her sister, Sophia, makes a play for Mitchell’s attention. ;)

“Jess!” Sofia stood as they approached and held out her arms for a hug, which Jessica happily gave her.
“You look amazing.” Jessica stepped back and looked at the smoking-hot red mini-dress and five-inch black high heels Sofia was wearing.
“Thank you.” Her sister smiled and looked over Jessica’s outfit with raised eyebrows. “You’re looking hot tonight.”
Oh God. She heard the suggestive tone in her sister’s voice, but did Mitchell catch it above the noise? She hoped not, but was afraid her fair skin was already giving away her blush. She glanced over her shoulder at her non-date, who was patiently waiting. “You remember Mitchell Walker? Mitchell, my sister Sofia.”
He stepped forward with his hand out and Sofia grinned at him like a cat that ate the canary. “Doctor Hottie-pants. Yes, I definitely remember you! And I owe you a drink for saving my brother’s life.” Sofia lifted one long, elegant wrist in a little wave and a waiter magically appeared at their side in seconds. “What are you drinking, Doctor? And I won’t take no for an answer.”
“Whiskey on the rocks.”
Jessica shook her head. Someone had to drive Doctor Hottie-pants home. “Iced tea with mint.”
Sofia nodded, ordered enough food for a small army, and told her waiter to keep the drinks coming, and the doctor’s glass full. When she sat back down on one of the rust-colored couch cushions, Jessica hurried to sit beside her, leaving Mitchell to take a chair on her right. The couch was too comfortable, too tempting, and way too intimate.
The food was great and the conversation flowed, thanks in no small part to Sofia’s charm. Mitchell was on his sixth or seventh glass of whiskey, his words taking on a cute slur when the music slowed and her sister jumped to her feet. Sofia held out her hand to Mitchell. “Come on, Doc, dance with me.”
Mitchell looked at Jessica, but she just raised her eyebrows and gave a helpless little shrug. Mitchell wasn’t her date, exactly. They weren’t a couple, and it was just a dance.
Less than sixty seconds later Jessica regretted that decision. Sofia was plastered all over Mitchell on the dance floor in that tight-ass red dress, looking like a sex kitten. Jessica loved her sister, but the woman was deadly where men were concerned. Jessica had yet to meet a man who could resist Sofia’s charms for long.
Jealous? Yes, she was jealous. Which was stupid and ridiculous and she had no right, but there it was. She’d brought Mitchell out tonight. He was her Doctor Hottie-pants, at least for now. She was the one driving him home. The least she could do was save him from making a drunken decision he’d regret in the morning.
But then again, Jessica had never heard any man complain after leaving Sofia’s bed. They were usually chasing her around, begging to be allowed back into it.
Felix, the youngest of the Castillo clan, and two years younger than she was, had been quiet all night. But he chuckled from her left and Jessica turned to glare at her younger brother. “What?”
“You’re turning green.”
“Am not.”
Felix raised his half-empty glass and used it to point toward the dance floor. “Then you won’t mind watching Sofia make her move on your doc. She’s playing with his hair.”
Jessica jumped to her feet and headed for her sister, Felix’s chuckle chasing her across the room. Sure enough, Sofia had her head on Mitchell’s shoulder and her left hand had found its way to the base of the Mitchell’s head. She was petting him. To give Mitchell credit, he wasn’t taking advantage of the situation. His eyes were straight ahead, his head up and not buried in the mass of Sofia’s black, silken hair and his hand at Sofia’s waist hadn’t drifted anywhere…inappropriate. Good thing, because she wasn’t sure she’d be able to prevent herself from accidentally kicking him in the shins. But if Sofia had her way…
Oh, hell no.
“Excuse me, Sofia, but I’m cutting in.”
Sofia lifted her head from Mitchell’s shoulder as if she were drunk on the man’s pheromones. “Why?”
Okay. Sofia had a point. It wasn’t like Jessica had been acting territorial. She hadn’t held his hand, or even let him sit next to her.
But that did not mean it was open season, either. “I want to dance.”
“Wait your turn.”
Seriously? Sofia was going to push her? Now? She had the insane urge to stomp her foot, or reach over and pull Sofia off Mitchell by her hair, but she just smiled instead, and physically removed Sofia’s right hand from Mitchell’s left to tug her away. When Jess had her sister completely untangled, she gave Sofia a little shove back toward the corner. “Get off my man, little sister, before I kick your ass into next week.”

After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he's misinterpreted their budding relationship.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she's ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she's prepared to hole up and mourn--and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn't count on the sinfully hot artist she's been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the heat sizzling between them. But that doesn't stop him from feeling protective of the woman who's consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker's plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker's past unfolds, they're led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, and late-night fantasies become passionate realities, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they've found.

Blake Ruthless teaser 1
    Riley’s mouth came down on hers again. She could feel his hunger, and his hands roamed over the curves of her hips and backside, rubbing himself against her. It fed her own. She’d never felt more wanted, needed by a man. He didn’t seem to simply want sex with someone. He seemed to need her—only her. She wrapped her arms around him and held on, letting him lead. His mouth moved down, kissing her jaw and ear. “Do you have any idea what I want to do to you?” A little bit. She’d always been quiet during sex, preferring to con- centrate on the sensations, but she wanted to hear him. She wanted to know he was with her. “What do you want to do?” She shivered with heat as his tongue ran along the shell of her ear and he nipped the lobe, a thrill shooting through her. His voice was a low, sexy growl in her ear. “I think about stripping you down all the time.” He turned her suddenly and her back was pressed to his front. She could feel the hard ridge of his erection against her backside. His arms wound around her, keeping her close. “You want me naked?” She didn’t want to stop talking. She could see now that her other sexual encounters had been defined by the walls she’d put up. Though she’d had a partner, she’d been essentially alone in whatever pleasure she’d found. With her ex-husband she would turn off the lights, enjoy the ride, and then sleep in silence, their physicality the only true intimacy between them. She didn’t want that with Riley. His hands moved up, cupping her breasts through the thin mate- rial of her blouse and bra. The warmth of his mouth and lips moved on her neck. “I’ll have you naked. I’ll get rid of every single thing that comes between us. I’ll strip you and then touch every inch of your body. You might be the boss in the boardroom, but I intend to lead here. I intend to have you every way I can have a woman, Ellie. Once I’m inside you, I won’t want to leave.” He was still giving her a way out. She wasn’t going to take it. “Yes, Riley. I won’t change my mind.” His thumbs rasped over her nipples. “I’ll fucking hold you to that. I will.” She had no idea why he sounded so resolute, but his hands were working the buttons of her blouse, dragging it out of the waistband of her skirt and peeling it back. Cool air hit her skin. Her brain was foggy with lust. Her whole system had softened in a way it never had before. She felt hot, her muscles tight with need, but she let Riley take over. He slipped off her bra and then sighed against her skin as he cupped her breasts again. “Fuck, that feels so good. These are beautiful, baby. Do you have any idea how long I’ve wanted to get my hands on these?” She leaned back against him, her head cradled by the strength of his chest. He was solid all over. His callused hands rubbed against her skin, the feeling of masculinity making her feel more feminine than she’d ever felt before. His fingers rolled her nipples and for a moment, she couldn’t breathe. “You’re going to give me everything I want, aren’t you, Ellie? You’re going to let me play with this body. You’re going to wrap your- self around me and let me have you like I’ve dreamed of. Without reservations, no thoughts of anything but how we can make each other feel.” Forgetting everything else seemed like the best idea ever. She needed this. Needed to let go of everything and simply be. She hadn’t done it in years, maybe never. But it felt right with Riley. It felt good and true. “Yes. I don’t want to be anywhere but with you. Only you.” His hand fumbled with the button on the back of her skirt and he cursed, finally managing to undo it. “Damn it. I’m not going to last once I get inside you. I’m going to be good for you, Ellie. I promise. I’ll make it so fucking good for you.” She loved the growl he got in his voice when he was really aroused. And the way his hands shook. She wasn’t in this alone. He was with her, right beside her in his need. She helped him, shoving the skirt down and kicking off her shoes. When she was down to nothing but her undies, she turned in his arms. She was a little too big, her breasts real. Unlike many women her age, she’d never lifted them or enlarged them. They sagged slightly and she was well aware that her hips were curvier than fashionable. Would he turn her away? Would he see she wasn’t as pretty as he’d thought? He stared, his eyes going right to her breasts. “You’re so gorgeous, Ellie. Do you have any idea what I’ve gone through since that first day? I’ve never masturbated as much as I have in the last week.” Yep, the man knew what to say to her. She was pretty sure she was glowing. “I’ve thought about you, too.” “I want you to tell me all about that, but later, baby. Right now, I’m going to do what I’ve wanted to do since the moment I met you.”

She quickly realizes that the prospect of having what she’s always fantasized about is a very real possibility.

He quickly realizes that although he feels this mind-blowing attraction towards her, she’s the little sister of one of his band mates - he would get his ass kicked from here to hell if he ever laid a finger on her!

But can Kitty convince him? After all, no one else needs to know, a one-time hook-up might suit both of them…or could it ruin everything?

We’re all sitting around, drinking our beers. I’m slouched down on one of the armchairs that I’ve claimed as my own. I’m still twirling my drumsticks and tapping away on my legs and the surrounding furniture. I’m a couple or three beers in when I hear the door to the suite open. I glance across to see Nikki, our rhythm guitarist and his girl Trixie strolling in jovially, Nikki’s arm is draped over her shoulder and she’s securely tucked into his side.
I lift my head and somberly greet them, “Hey.”
Nikki bobs his head in acknowledgement and Trixie waves her hand to say hi. I expect them to close the door but instead the most stunning girl on the fucking planet glides in behind them. She has smooth jet black hair that flows down her back and it’s so long it reaches her ass. She’s tall, probably almost as tall as me and her body rocks. She’s slim, but has nicely rounded hips and amazing tits. Her emerald green eyes are sparkling boldly as she scans the room confidently. I immediately jump up from my chair, drop my drumsticks to the floor and feel an undeniable rousing in my pants. Hell, maybe my day won’t be so bad after all. I feel better already!
The other guys all stand up too. Fuck off cock-suckers, she’s mine.
I take a step forward as the raven haired beauty suddenly shrieks in an oddly familiar voice, “Oh my god, hi guys, I’ve missed y’all so much!”
Fuck, fuck, fuck! My muddled brain suddenly clicks and makes the connection as I realize that the hottie that has my body vibrating like a god-damned amplifier is Kitty, Nikki’s little sister. Holy Crap! Somebody turns the music down and everyone starts walking towards Kitty. My heart is beating so damned loud that I’m sure the whole room can hear it.
What the hell happened to Nikki’s little sister? I remember her as being a sweet little girl that we used to tease and let hang around the band. She’d bring us beers and dote over all of us, but especially me. Sure, she’s always been pretty and downright cute, but I’ve never thought of her as the unmistakable sex kitten she is now. She’s definitely grown up and she’s a complete and utter babe. She’s the perfect embodiment of everything I find totally irresistible in a chick. I want!
Shit, maybe I’ve had more to drink than I thought, but I definitely shouldn’t be thinking this way about Nikki’s little sister and I don’t know how to handle these sudden irrefutable cravings. My hand twitches and strums anxiously on my leg as the adrenaline courses through me and makes me want to jump around like a fuckin’ crazy person.

Tania Sparks is a romantic at heart who genuinely believes in true love and soul mates. She met her husband while still at school, she was sixteen, he was seventeen. They are high school sweethearts who more than twenty five years later are still very much in love and are happily married with two beautiful daughters.

Tania does have a full time job, but in her spare minutes enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and reading. She's an avid reader who tends to chomp through a large volume of books, mainly in the romance genre. Her other major 'hobby' is writing steamy rock star erotic romances!

In 2014, after finding herself constantly being inspired by numerous romance novels, she decided to try her hand at writing. After penning her first scene she discovered that she enjoyed it immensely and so resolved to continue with the rest of the story that was swirling in her imagination. That story resulted in her first novel, Heaven Sent which is the first book in her Oblivion on Tour Series. This was soon followed by Bolt From The Blue and Pure Torture. Each book in the series is a stand-alone story which follows a different band member from a hard rock group called Oblivion - and of course the feisty ladies that steal their hearts! The other books in the series are at various stages of completion.

Now-a-days Tania finds it very difficult to control her imagination and swears that her rock stars are constantly chanting their stories in her head. She can't wait to share them with you...
