About the author and where to find her:
Hi I’m Mel aka Melina Turner, I’m an international award-winning poet and live in Australia in a little town called Gympie. I began my writing at an extremely young age starting in primary school in year 3 when I heard about Write4Fun, a school international writing competition. My first piece was called “Wild Brumbies” published in 2003 when I was in year 3. I soon after moved from Nambour to Gympie an hour away, where I was influenced by an amazing English teacher to continue writing. In 2005 when I was in year 5 I was awarded “honoured writer” for my poetry in which I continued and still do. In 2013 I was awarded, “Best Poet of 2012” and put into a poetry book that is now in the library of Congress. After I began poetry I soon wanted to branch out thus starting “The Deathly-Roses Volume 1” a flash fiction narrative-prose piece, original and first of its kind, to be published 2014. I then gapped it out and wrote Volume 2 in 2007 to be published also in 2014; the third to be written in 2014 and published 2015. My goal with these books (TDR Volumes) was to make it short and poetic-like to gain non-readers interest and I believe I have done that. As of 2012, I slowly branched out and started helping co-author for an independent film company called Timothy Mitchell Films, helping with scripts for movies. As of now I am beginning to write my first finished novel ever. As of now I will be finishing my novels and aiming for traditional publishing.

Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. This is a standalone read. If you love a man with a filthy mouth and dirty sex, then this book is perfect for you.
When Paranormal Investigation Bureau agent Bluebell Kildare (a.k.a. Blue) arrives at the scene of the crime it is obvious the grotesquely damaged body of the deceased teenage boy was caused by far more than a simple hit and run. Using her innate sixth sense, she locates a powerful magical artifact that acts as a key to an ancient Grimoire and is likely the motive for the crime. She soon discovers the Grimoire has a dark past as it was instrumental in the creation of the Vampire breed and still holds the power to unravel the boundaries between hell and earth.
Blue and her faithful wolf Varg follow the trail starting at the Cock and Bull Tap and all through the town of Crimson Hollow, which leads to plenty of dead ends; some more dead than others. Between being sidelined by a stalker that sticks to the shadows, and chasing a perpetrator that vanishes in thin air, things are getting complicated. Dark vampire activity is at an all time high and hate group activity is increasing. However, it’s her burgeoning feelings for Jack Tanner, her sexy Daylight Vampire boss, who alternates between warm affection and cool indifference that just might undo her. While Blue searches for clues to nail the perpetrator, someone seems to be conducting a search of their own and things are getting extremely messy. Who will find whom first? Danger lurks in every corner and Blue needs all her focus in this increasingly dangerous game or she risks ending up the next victim.
Rated R: A few scenes contain explicit sex and graphic violence. Recommended for 17+.

When Ryan Matthews meets Julia Abbott for the first time at Stanford University, he immediately knows she will change his life. They have an instant, unbreakable connection that goes beyond partying and palpable attraction. Although his intelligence and good looks land him any girl he wants, Ryan hesitates to cross that line with Julia because she quickly becomes the best friend he’s ever had. Both secretly in love, Ryan and Julia are terrified to take the chance that could mean the loss of the very person they don’t want to lose. As the bond between them grows stronger, they are both miserable as they are forced to watch as they each date other people. But will Ryan’s all-consuming jealousy and Julia’s deeply broken heart torment them enough to make one or both walk away?

This book was written after The Trilogy was finished due to an abundance of reader requests for more of Ryan and Julia’s story.
And so…The Mad, Mad Love Begins…
Excerpt from Before Ryan was Mine (Prequel: The Remembrance Trilogy):
Ryan: The biggest moment of my life found me unexpectedly. It crept up softly, and settled around me like a fuzzy blanket. A mere whisper; it hit me like a sledgehammer. At the time, I knew it was significant, but I didn’t realize just how those few seconds would change absolutely everything: how one brief glance could leave such an indelible stamp on the remainder of my life. It would become a contradiction; an unstoppable force that would send me reeling out of my control, churning and shredding my emotions, but create the most incredible contentment I’d ever feel. Contentment that could wrap me up in a warm, safe place or devastate me to the core and leave my heart in shambles. It would become years of want and pain, lust and love… It would hurt like the deepest hell, but become the most euphoric and precious ecstasy I’d ever know. I’d never forget that day, that moment; that glance.
It would wreck me. It would make me.

I was born in the Midwestern United States and educated at a private university where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Business Administration. I’ve always been creative with art, music, theater and writing. I decided to write a story as a way to build a network for a business venture.

Fun Facts, Playlist and, Character Interview: Love Redesigned (Book #1: French Kiss Connection Series) by Sloane B. Collins
Give American cake artist Genevieve Haywood a picture of anything, and she’ll turn it into a sweet and decadent creation. She’s not going to let hard work or competition stop her from opening her dream business. But when she’s hired as the cake artist for her cousin’s wedding in France, she never expected to run into the French fashion designer who broke her heart fifteen years ago.
Roman Duchaine is done living life in the fast lane. Tired of being in the haute couture spotlight, he’s moved back to the small French village where he was born and raised. Roman’s ready to settle down and have a family until the lost love of his life arrives for his cousin’s wedding. Seeing her reminds him just how devastating falling in love can be.
Their fragile truce is meant to last through the wedding, yet every second together makes their attraction and long-buried feelings undeniable. But old habits and hurts die hard, and while Roman is ready to weave their lives together, Genevieve can’t afford to lose herself in his shadow.
Interview with Daniel
Sloane: Hi, Daniel. Thanks so much for agreeing to be interviewed here today, and helping to celebrate the release of “Love Redesigned.”
Daniel: You’re welcome, Sugar. It’s a pleasure being here. Congrats on the book release!
Sloane: Thank you, I’m very excited. So how long have you and Genevieve been friends?
Daniel: Oh, gracious, we’ve been besties for almost twenty years. Lord that makes me feel old.
Sloane: Well, you don’t look old.
Daniel: I just knew I’d love you, Sweetie.
Sloane: So tell us about Genevieve.
Daniel: First off, she’s always been Gigi to me. Her cousin Connie Sue couldn’t pronounce “Genevieve” when they were young, and since her full name is Genevieve Grace, she became Gigi to family and friends. Well, until HE came along.
Sloane: He who?
Daniel: You know, Frenchie. Oops, sorry. I promised Gigi I’d stop calling him that. Roman, her ex-boyfriend. The scoundrel who broke her heart fifteen years ago.
Sloane: I see. So you don’t like him?
Daniel: He says he still loves her, but…
Sloane: Care to elaborate?
Daniel: They met when she was studying Patisserie at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, and he was working at a design house. She said it was instant chemistry, and they were practically inseparable. He’s definitely hot, and I do mean smokin’, so I can see why she was attracted to him. But then things went south, and he… Well, I better not continue, just in case there’s anyone eavesdropping. Besides, I think your readers will discover all about him in your book. Why don’t we change the subject?
Sloane: What would you like to talk about instead?
Daniel: Well, me of course, Sugar.
Sloane: Ok, so tell me about yourself.
Daniel: I was born in a little town outside Atlanta. That’s where I met Gigi and her cousin Connie Sue. Now I live in Atlanta and I’m an interior designer. I’m single, but hopeful. You should have seen the guy I met at the flea market outside Paris. Yum-MEE. But alas, no time to chat him up.
Sloane: So have you ever been to France before?
Daniel: No, and I’m so glad to be out of my little ol’ rut. I love the countryside, the people…and the food! I can see spending a lot more time here, and in Paris. Of course, I’d have to move in with Connie Sue and her hubby. They live in a chateau, you know. With a winery. Yep, I’m going to move in with them. But just keep that to yourself, okay?
Sloane: Sure thing, Daniel. Thanks again for joining us here today.
Daniel: My pleasure, Sugar. See you soon!
Fun Facts about the book:
- Daniel, the heroine’s best friend, walked onto the first page and took me by surprise. I hadn’t planned on a BFF for Gigi, but now I adore him!
- I created the small medieval village of St. Armand in the Alsace region of France, bordering Germany.
- The Alsace region was actually in a game of tug of war between France and Germany for hundreds of years. But since 1945, it has been a part of France again.
- Genevieve is a cake artist, much like you’d see on those cake wars shows on the Food Network. She can pretty much turn anything into a decadent cake.
5. I’m a very visual writer, so I like to have pictures to inspire me. I’ve created boards (yes, plural) for each of my novels. Feel free to see what inspired me in writing “Love Redesigned,” from the characters, to Gigi’s cakes, to the chateau, and the village of St. Armand! http://www.pinterest.com/sloanebcollins/

Sloane B. Collins is an award-winning author of Contemporary Romance. Although she is a fifth-generation Texan, she dreams of moving to the French countryside someday. Right now, she lives in the Dallas area with her husband of over twenty-six years, and their four rambunctious cats. Since Sloane and her husband love to travel, she’s determined to write a novel set in just about every place they visit.
This book contains the GEGs! For those of you who don’t understand that warning: GEGs= strong language. gut-busting LOL moments caused by best friends who check their maturity at the door when they’re together, and impromptu Kegel exercises. This book does not come with batteries. Though it can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading the series in order since all books will have a continuation of EVERYONE’S story. Enjoy! ***
CiCi O’Brien has a weapon of mass destruction—her mouth. It’s always loaded and ready to strike, whether the situation calls for laughter or a professional smart a$$. It’s been her strongest suit against unwanted feelings, especially over the past fifteen years. If she acts like she doesn’t care, then she won’t, right? Yeah . . . keep telling yourself that, Ceese! Luckily for CiCi, she’s surrounded by friends and family, who can easily see through her façade. They (and the fur balls she takes care of at work) are the ones who enrich her life daily. And they have been the only ones she’s needed in her life. That is, until the day, her life changed, when she grabbed it by the balls. No, seriously . . . she grabbed him by the balls. Not kidding. Nope. Keep reading.
Kyle Cooper has it all. He’s smart, handsome, and a Ninja (not really, but that’s what Mitch likes to call him). Being Vice President of Colton Technologies, he travels around the world, bringing companies the latest innovations in automobile technology. At home, he’s a force to be reckoned with, always hanging out with his parents and sister or . . . working. Oh. Kyle Cooper does not have it all. He knows this and is ready to change it. He just doesn’t know where to begin. That is, until CiCi O’Brien walks into his office and grabs this bull by the . . . horns (wink). A spark has been ignited in both of them. Kyle embraces it. CiCi does everything, short of calling the fire department, to put it out. Who will prevail? And what will that truly mean to the person who does?
Charlotte McKendrick is your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. She has three beautiful children, a loving family, special friends, and the most wonderful, adoring husband. Her life is a dream. Er . . . let’s try this again. Charlotte McKendrick is not your typical thirty-something stay-at-home mom. Yes, she’s got three beautiful children, a loving family (all of them lingerers—you’ll see), and her friends are special, all right! As far as her wonderful, adoring husband, what a joke! That bastard abandoned her and the kids six months ago. Now, she will do anything she can to survive and provide for her children. Even if it means signing on the dotted line . . .
Mitch Colton is the CEO of Colton Technologies. Most of his year is spent traveling around the world, bringing companies the latest innovations in automobile technology. He doesn’t have time for a traditional relationship and the BS that comes with it. He doesn’t do the “marriage” thing, the “kid” thing, and he certainly doesn’t do the “falling in love” thing. All that said, he still wants someone to come home to. Someone who will offer everything he wants, and nothing he doesn’t. He realizes loyalty paired with these kinds of demands won’t come cheap. No problem. What he doesn’t realize is that once Charlotte McKendrick signs that dotted line, he’ll be paying with a lot more than money.

This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire. Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the Queen. I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl.

Finding myself again through my writing in The Lost & Found Series, The One, and The GEG Series has been nothing short of a dream come true. Also, it makes people feel better when I laugh randomly or talk to myself, knowing it’s my characters and not “the voices” . . . that would be creepy.
Release Day Blitz: Excerpt and Sweepstakes: Game for Tonight (Book #3: Game for It Series) by Karen Erickson
She’ll teach him the art of seduction one play at a time…
Publicist Aubrey Cooper never should have crossed the line. After all, pro football player Flynn Foley is her client. But something about this mouth-wateringly-hot, clean-cut athlete makes Aubrey imagine all kinds of X-rated fantasies. And it only takes one game-changing play―and one night―to turn the tables from strictly business to very, very personal…
Flynn has maintained a no-sexy-distractions policy for his entire pro career. Aubrey is exactly the kind of distraction he was trying to avoid, and she’s the one he can’t resist. When the media catches wind of their naughty little liaison, however, Aubrey’s boss steps in to make them an official couple. What Flynn doesn’t know is that Aubrey is forced to fake the relationship―or lose her job. Now Aubrey must hide the truth…even as she begins to fall for Flynn.
Excerpt from Game for Tonight (Book #3: Game for It Series):
Aubrey cracked open her eyes, studying him like he’d lost his mind. Which he sort of had—over her. He kissed her again before she could say a word, losing himself in her sweet lips, the soft little moans sounding low in her throat.
He liked sex. And he liked the woman in his arms plenty. So much, that he’d kept her at arm’s length for months for fear of falling hard for her and ruining his concentration. Besides, he wasn’t much of a rule breaker, damn it. If it was against company policy to date a fellow employee, then he wasn’t going to do it.
But screw it. He felt as if everything was uncertain right now, up in the air, unconfirmed. Walsh wasn’t talking—at least he wasn’t talking enough. The conversation they’d had before Aubrey had interrupted them had been full of nothing but a bunch of crap. Coach had acted downright evasive.
The vibe he was getting from his coach? He didn’t like it. At all.
He was tired of worrying about things that were out of his control. What was the big deal if he kissed Aubrey anyway? Maybe he could work her out of his system. Maybe kissing her wouldn’t be all that special and he could walk away from this.
Ha. Tell that to his overheated, turned-inside-out body. Flynn broke away from Aubrey’s lips to catch some air, though really, he wanted to look at her, memorize this moment when he’d first kissed Aubrey. Even in the dim light, he could see her lips were swollen, her cheeks flushed. She opened her eyes, the dazed look in them sending an arrow of arousal shooting straight through him, making his cock twitch. Pride suffused him. He put that look on her face.
“Flynn.” She pursed her lips, exhaling softly, the sound shaky. “What in the world was that?”
He smiled. She was a bundle of nerves, his publicist. Always running around, a little manic, a lot frantic, riding his ass to do this, do that. She’d been harder on Hamilton, but that crazy guy needed someone to rein him in most of the time.
“I thought it was a kiss? Unless I’m doing it wrong…” A chuckle escaped him, and he hoped she was in on the joke.
“No. You were definitely not doing it wrong.” She blew out a trembling breath, her gaze cautious. “I just want to make sure we’re both on the same page.”
“Well, I’m pretty sure we’re on the same page.” Leaning in, he nuzzled her cheek with his, kissing a soft path along her fragrant skin until his mouth was on hers once more. “A shame you didn’t recognize it.”
She smiled against his lips, her fingers tightening in his hair. “I just thought…”
“Thinking gets you nowhere,” he whispered just before he took the kiss deeper, his tongue thrusting, his mouth devouring. She was a thinker, which meant she set her brain to smoking more often than not. And he wanted her feeling, not thinking or worrying.
He gripped her hips with both hands and pulled her in, wanting her as close as he could get her. This…thing between them had been brewing for a while, torturing him. She’d been by his side almost constantly the past few months, guiding his career, carefully preserving his image.
Every time he was with her, the scent of her hair drove him wild. The way he caught her looking at him, her gaze hungry, her lips damp, echoed an answering call deep within him.

USA Today bestselling author Karen Erickson writes what she loves to read – sexy contemporary romance. Published since 2006, she’s a native Californian who lives in the foothills below Yosemite with her husband and three children. She’s also known as NYT and USA Today bestselling author Monica Murphy.
Mike Owens is the devil. Sexy, snarky, and as lowdown as they come, he’s one of the world’s greatest guitarists and one of Portland’s most notorious bad boys. Jenny Turner is an angel. A preacher’s daughter, she’s a good girl with a great voice and a dream to hit it big in country music. When these two opposites meet, the attraction is undeniable, but something’s stopping the bad boy from pursuing what he desires most. Can this angel handle the truth behind her devil? Or will his secrets be too Lowdown and Lush?
Excerpt from Lowdown and Lush:
“Sunshine.” His deep voice rumbles through me and I moan. “It’s time to wake up.”
I feel his thumb brush across my bottom lip and I open to him, taking him into my mouth. I run my tongue across the fleshy pad, which tastes salty and faintly metallic from the guitar strings he’s been strumming.
I hear his intake of breath before he says, “Jesus.” His palm cups my cheek and then he’s leaning down. His scruff brushes against my face as I hear him rasp out, “You’re so fucking beautiful.”
Somewhere in another part of my mind, I know this isn’t real, somehow shouldn’t be happening, but right now, I don’t care. I keep my eyes closed because I don’t want to discover that it’s all a dream. I reach for him, letting my hands travel the length of his corded forearms, then up past his bulging biceps and around his broad shoulders.
His breath is coming hard and fast, and I turn my head, trading his thumb against me for his mouth. His lips are hot and slick, and I can taste the Coke he was drinking earlier on them.
“More,” I gasp out as he squeezes my thigh.
His lips float across mine, and before I know it, his hand has dug into my hair and his tongue is in my mouth. I press my leg against his hip that’s resting next to me on the sofa. I still haven’t opened my eyes, too afraid to see that look again—the look he gave me the night he took my virginity.
But I feel him. On my skin, around my heart, inside my soul. I feel his breath and his touch and his heartbeat. I feel his anguish and his pent-up frustrations, and I feel his fear. Then it’s all burned away by the desire, the raw, animal desire, that courses through both of us. His kiss is searing, setting my whole core on fire. It’s primal, the way he makes me feel, and as his hand moves around to stroke the petal-soft skin on the inside of my thigh, I move against him with a moan that sounds desperate and wild.
I arch into him as much as I can, and he drives his tongue into my mouth in a frenzy, licking, sucking, moaning into me.
