Steal me, Cowboy by Kim Boykin - Super Book Blast

Today, I welcome author Kim Boykin on her super book blast tour for her contemporary romance, intriguingly entitled Steal me, Cowboy!

Definitely a title to check out! :-)




BLURB:

Unbeknownst to her boyfriend, Sassy South Carolina hairstylist, Rainey Brown, is headed to Missoula, dead set on giving her minor league baseball player boyfriend of four years an ultimatum. Either put a ring on it or let her go, preferably not the latter.

When Rainey's piece of crap car dies in the middle of Nowhere, Montana, she's sure she's a gonner, until gorgeous restaurateur Beck Hartnett stops to help. Beck falls hard for Rainey, and knows she would admit she's fallen for him too, if she wasn't too stubborn to admit it. Beck has five days before the car is repaired to steal Rainey away from a boyfriend who doesn't deserve her. Five days before she's gone for good.


Page Turner Tour: Fighting Kat by PJ Schnyder

Today, I'm delighted to welcome another fabulous author, PJ Schnyder, through Buy the Book Tours. She chats about character inspiration for her latest release, Fighting Kat. She also offers some lovely gifts, so read on!




Character Inspiration and IRL People

I’m often asked if I write the people I know into my books. In fact, several who’ve had a chance to read the advanced copy of Fighting Kat said they thought of me and my boyfriend, Matt/“itsOrD”.

Fun Fact: The Triton Experiment series began with Hunting Kat, which was written and published by Carina Press prior to my having met Matt. So Kaitlyn and Rygard are not me and my boyfriend.

My characters are inspired by bits and pieces of interactions though, from every person I encounter. A snippet of conversation, a facial expression, a funny anecdote…those are captured in my stories. Usually, I use those little snippets to give a character life and personality. I use favorite phrases, funny habits, and little idiosyncrasies to give depth and that extra spark to a character. Sometimes the snippets add to the overall story arc as well, but usually they lend towards character building.

In the course of creating my characters in Fighting Kat, I fell in love with many of them. I hope my readers do to.

Isn't the new cover gorgeous? :-)

Blurb:

Murder. Betrayal. Hope.


On his return from battle at Lincoln, Geoffrey de Mortagne, under-sheriff of Gloucester and spy for the Empress Matilda, assists a dying knight caught in an ambush. Promising to look after the welfare of the knight's only daughter, Geoffrey stays at her manor, investigating the murder. Keen to join the Empress on her progress through England, he is torn between his oath and his duty.

Left to defend her manor following her father's death, Alleyne de Bellac reluctantly accepts Geoffrey's support. As she doesn't trust the taciturn stranger, she asks Will d'Arques, an old friend, for help. But loyalties change. Her life in danger and her inheritance at stake, Alleyne must decide which man to trust.

Discover England and Normandy divided by a brutal civil war, where vows are broken as allegiances waver.

Super Book Blast: Fatal Trust by Diana Miller

Good morning! I'm kicking off 2014 in style today:

Please welcome author Diana Miller who's on a Book Blast tour with her romantic suspense, Fatal Trust! It's worth a look!



Blurb:

Stepping her perfect Jimmy Choos into place beside Ben Gallagher’s wounded Nikes, straitlaced Philadelphia lawyer Catherine Barrington is surprisingly unable to resist the disarming small-town mechanic’s charm. He’s one of the heirs to the vast fortune left by his eccentric grandfather Max, a bestselling horror writer, and she’s there to carry out Max’s last wishes. Routine enough…except that inheriting comes with a catch: none of Max’s heirs will get a penny until they’ve lived together for two weeks in the shadow-filled rooms of his mansion in the wooded hills near Lake Superior.

From beyond the grave, a letter from Max insists that his death was no accident, sending Catherine undercover—and way out of her comfort zone—to catch the killer. Posing as Lexie, Ben's cocktail waitress girlfriend, Catherine soon finds herself trapped with the feuding clan at the sinister Nevermore manor. To save her own life, she’ll have to confront the murderer, as well as her growing attraction to Ben—a top suspect.

~~~~~~

Happy New Year!

I know I'm late. It's my trademark! :-)

Wishing all of my lovely friends and followers a happy, healthy and successful 2014! 


One of my (usually broken) resolutions is to complete at least one of my current WIPs. Daily life and editing for CCP take precedent, but I've missed the escape and the buzz writing gives you. Plus, I'm going to map out the sequel to Dark Deceit. Lots of fighting in Normandy. Plus perhaps a murder or two thrown in. Can't have poor Geoffrey de Mortagne get bored...

So, what are your New Year's resolutions? Do you bother? Do you stick with them?

So, here's to many happy hours spent writing!

Cin cin!
