Cover reveal for Tiffany Carmouche

1376421_385785398217233_58103311_nPictures, Lies and Promises, “the 4th installment in the Alaska series, is another nail biter. Literally, it picks up right where Becoming Invisible leaves off, with my hand over my eyes peeking through the crack, staring at my kindle while holding my breath. I kid you not, I was scared! I might have to sleep with the lights on! All of our favorite characters are back, well actually my favorite characters are the three hot guys, Dylan, Brad, and Chris. It’s true that I’m proudly a member of Team Dylan who I want to end up with our heroine Nicole. However that doesn’t mean that Brad doesn’t have a special place in my heart too. Especially after he is man enough to be loving to a scared little girl. He won my heart with the mermaid song… *sigh* I’m a big fan of this series and I can’t wait for the next installment. I still have questions that need to be answered and hot guys that need to find love.”~Rose Puls

Excerpts from TEMPLAND:

Excerpt One:
This morning I got up and dialed the temp agency.  The recruiters all say you can call them as early as 7 am and someone will be there to take the “same-day requests”—the jobs that come in at the last minute. The temp agency brochures all describe—in glossy, four-color detail—the urgent job requests the temp agencies supposedly get at all hours, the jobs that the smiling, well-dressed temp recruiters all promise will be available for me within hours after registering with their agencies as a Temporary Office Associate.
Temp agency recruiters get paid on commission. (Used car salesmen do, too.)
            The pile of dog-eared brochures from Kelly Services, Loftus & O’Meara, PeoplePower, Legal Helpers, and a dozen more agencies sit on my dresser, each of them promising all sorts of glamorous, important temp jobs:
            “A middle manager calls Kelly Services at 5:02 pm on Thursday requesting a receptionist for 7:30 Friday morning, because the regular receptionist went into premature labor at 4:59 p.m. and they just can’t go without.  This is where the Kelly Girl comes in!”
            “A trial lawyer whose secretary quit the day before calls Loftus & O’Meara Legal Staffing at 6:54 a.m., begging for someone to come in and transcribe his trial notes into a brief so he can get it to the judge in time.  You’re the one who saves the day!”
No matter how much those glossy brochures swear that there are thousands of job opportunities just like these each and every day in Chicago, as one jobless day runs into the next, I think it’s beginning to look a lot like false advertising.
            I’ve been calling in to the temporary agency—well, all my agencies since I’m registered with at least 15 of them right now—-every morning at 7:00 a.m., and then at 7:30 a.m., 8:00 am and every five minutes thereafter, every morning, all week, all month, hoping that there will be something for me to do—some phone to answer or some scribbles to type—so I can get paid and buy food and pay rent this week, (and we are not even talking about paying the student loans this month, and the credit cards are just plain ridiculous), but there is nothing.
            Nothing. Not a single, solitary, lowdown, unsecure, no-benefits, no sick-days, no-self-esteem temp assignment to be had anywhere in the Windy City.
            When I call all the recruiters I get the same excuses over and over again:
            “No, sorry, nothing has come in this week, Melanie.  Call back later this morning.”
            “Sorry, we haven’t had any new job orders in weeks.  The agency is even letting people go from our office since we’re getting no commissions.”
            “Call tomorrow.  I am absolutely positive that we will have something tomorrow.”
            “We’ve been in the Chicago temping business thirty years and it has just never been this bad, I mean really honey, it’s nothing against you but—“
            “Call next week.  We just got a big order for proofreaders at Kirkland & Ellis for a class-action lawsuit project next week, and Melanie, we know that you really know your proofreading, so we will be sure to call you.”
            “No, sorry, Kirkland & Ellis cancelled that big order.  They decided to use their in-house staff. The judgments, they just aren’t what they used to be you know, so they’re cutting back on all their hiring. Call back the week after next.”
            They used to call Chicago the City That Works.  So much for that.

EXCERPTS: PERMLAND

Excerpt 1:
I am sitting in my downtown office chained to my computer at 3 am waiting for someone in Amsterdam to tell me whether or not an email memo I wrote about a new companywide HR benefits policy seventeen hours ago is “corporately sufficient” for companywide distribution.
“Corporately sufficient?”
What the hell does that even mean?
When I emailed this very question to Pietra Van der Veertz, (otherwise known as my Dutch Corporate Slave Master) she simply replied, “Dear Melanie—-Please be patient with us.  We are simply trying to insure that all Dutch/Marquette Bank & Trust corporate communications fit our proscribed, proactive, organizational-behavior corporate-branding paradigm.  Please DO NOT leave the office until you receive word from us, so that this message may be distributed globally at the earliest possible time.”
Huh?
That was at 8 pm.  It’s now 3:04 am.  I’m still here, and there’s no “corporate-branding paradigm” in sight.  Wall, please let me introduce you to my head.
Pietra Van der Veertz has had me by the virtual balls ever since I started my permanent job here six months ago, just after AGN ANSI—that enormous Dutch financial conglomerate—bought out Marquette Bank, where until six months ago I was working the strangest temp assignment of my verylong temp-work career, that of corporate-espionage-murder-investigator-slash-typist.  (That may sound like a pretty weird job title for an office temp, but it was the most exciting work I ever did for fifteen bucks an hour and zero benefits.)
Strange or no, there were plenty of good things that came out of that temp assignment, among them this high-level, high-paying corporate management job. Because I suppose being chained me to my computer at 3 a.m. is still better than unemployment, even though going without sleep three nights in a row sucks major ass. I also landed my über-hot boyfriend David via that same temp job, and David doesn’t suck my ass, unless I specifically ask him to when we’re in bed together.
Don’t get me wrong—the pay and the perks I get with this job are definitely nice. If it weren’t for all the late nights, my extensive Ann Taylor wardrobe alone would be worth the aggravation. But after months of too many twenty-hour workdays, I’m beginning to get a little nostalgic for the good old days of temp work—eight-hour shifts, little to no personal responsibility, and abject poverty.  I might have been poor back then, but at least I could sleep.
It’s been especially bad for the past month, when AGN ANSI senior management decided to do a complete overhaul on Ducth/Marquette Bank & Trust’s “internal branding”.  (Which is just a fancy way of saying they’re replacing all the stationery.)  I’ve spent at least four nights a week past midnight in the office—plus weekends—waiting for meaningless corporate drivel that I’ve written to get official approval from someone in Amsterdam.
That someone is usually Pietra Van der Veertz, who, if my business trip to meet my new European bosses last October is any example, spends most of her company flex time smoking the latest hashish blends at the Rottweiler Coffeehouse in the Amsterdam red-light district (she calls it “essential corporate creativity extension”), and using her altered mental state as an excuse for taking seventeen hours to reply to my one-line email messages on her own top-of-the-line EuroBlackberry, which she carries everywhere and even is known to pound on tables and gesticulate with wildly in videoconference meetings—-but still refuses to actually use.
Of course, at Dutch/Marquette Bank & Trust (AGN ANSI’s American division), random drug testing is mandatory. So unlike Pietra, I can’t get away with being stoned on the job. All I can do is drink black coffee, tug at my hangnails, and wait.

Blog tour for Rose of Thorne

Blog tour for Rose of Thorne by Mia Michelle

Blurb:

When a drunk driver tragically orphans Skylar Rose at the age of sixteen, she leaves her dreams behind and takes on the daunting task of helping her elderly grandmother raise her young sister. While other girls her age were living a typical carefree life, she was picking up double shifts at a local café and struggling to pay the bills.

Always putting her sister’s needs and school first, Skylar has never had time to date or develop relationships. Now a senior in college, she has her sights set on an amazing internship opportunity. The last thing she needed was for a sexy distraction like Sebastian Thorne to walk into her life.

Sebastian Thorne had been an entitled and reckless nineteen year old when he got behind the wheel of his new sports car that night. When his night of indulgence goes tragically wrong, Sebastian hesitantly turns to the one person, he knows can make everything go away…the one person he hates ..his father.

Now twenty-six, Sebastian is the young enigmatic and powerful CEO of his late father’s design company, Thorne Enterprises. With both millions in the bank and a new woman on his arm almost every night, the world never knew the dark secret he carried inside. Still plagued with nightmares from the night of that horrific accident and having to leave the beautiful girl behind, Sebastian vows to find the one that haunts his dreams. Sometimes the choice of revisiting our past opens the door to a future that we never thought possible.

Haunted by their past, these two want nothing more than to have their life given back to them. But what do you do when the person who gave you back your life, was the very one that took it from you in the first place?

* BOOK 2 THORNELESS will follow VERY VERY SOON!! Contains sexual content and abusive situations. Recommended for readers 18+ years.

Hotter than Hot - Milly Silver

Hotter Than Hot Blurb:  Maggie Lee is Space Cadet 69. She begged for a different number. But no can do. She’s stuck with a 69 on her forehead, until she’s vaporised. That pretty much sums up Maggie’s life.Stuck in a boring job counting tins of meatballs.
Stuck on the dullest space station in the universe, Lanzarote.
And stuck with no hope of achieving her dream of flying scout ships.
Enter hot guy Hunter in his blinged-up spaceship. Things start to get unstuck for Maggie real fast.

Maggie needs to outwit evil Lord Zagon who wants to kill her for her cherished precognition helmet, find a rare space rock to save her family from suspended animation and flee from giddy space pirates wanting to pimp out her friends to the nearest aliens. Hunter being a sexy space god isn’t exactly helping Maggie’s concentration levels either.

Can Maggie pull it off? If she doesn’t, her family will be frozen forever and Lord Zagon will rule the universe. Then she’ll definitely never get to fly scout ships.

HOTTER THAN HOT is a NA romantic comedy. It’s a light, fast read that will keep you laughing all the way through. The perfect beach read!

My rating: <a href=”http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/718927472″>5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
I never thought I would be reading about an octopus much less falling for one!! I love that the author could make me fall for a very unlikely creature. This story takes place in the future with a young woman named Teagan. She quickly meets Ari and the adventures begin. Ari has many abilities and I couldn’t stop reading to find out more about them. The world building in this book is amazing as well. I could very easily picture all of the scenes as if I was there with them. I love when an author can do that. I cant recommend this book enough. It is a great read full of fun and excitement. Please don’t brush it off because of the creature. Ari is well worth the read!!! You will fall for him and his Utilikilt instantly!
