☆November 1st – RELEASE

Breaking the rules isn’t an option for photographer Kallie Gregory. Her career depends on it…

The only thing Kallie ever wanted to do was take photos. She’s been working with the industry’s most popular male models and building a name for herself. Proclaimed an up and coming sensation, Kallie knows she has to set professional boundaries with her clients. No dating the models. No exceptions. Following the rules has never been a problem, until she met Jax.

Jax Burke always gets what he wants, and that includes Kallie…

Jax is one of the most recognizable and sought-after male models on the market. When he makes a pass at the beautiful photographer at his latest shoot, she shuts him down. Despite their chemistry on and off the set, Kallie makes it clear they will never be anything more than friends. She’s witnessed the effects of what dating a model can do to a photographer’s career, and she’s worked too hard to ruin it now.

Fighting temptation was easier before her heart got involved…

Jax is happy to abide by Kallie’s friendship guidelines. He isn’t looking for a quick fling that will make the media rounds. He likes her, and with enough time he knows he can change her mind about all her rules.

Kallie still has her doubts, but Jax is willing to risk it all for love. He’s determined to convince her to finally take a chance on the life waiting for her out from…

Behind the Lens.

Blurb:

Struggling writer Phoebe Ryan abandons her southern roots and heads to New York, determined to leave her nightmarish past behind…

She was not expecting to meet a famous rock star, or to be coerced into ghostwriting his autobiography. But she tries to maintain focus on her dream of becoming an author, despite the attraction she feels for the sexy rocker, not to mention the baggage that comes with him.

Julian Bale’s world was shattered one drunken night, and it almost ruined him…

Weighed down by guilt, he blames himself for an accident he could’ve prevented. He will play the game, but swears his hot little ghostwriter will never get that story out of him. As much as he wants her, if he has to choose between his dream and hers, it’s no contest.

Phoebe and Julian give in to a forbidden attraction, and their public romance risks both their lives…

An obsessive fan is on the loose and now that the secret’s out, it’s made them both targets. The psychotic stalker is determined to have Julian for herself, even if she has to reveal their sordid pasts and eliminate Phoebe to do it.

He lives for fame. She lives to hide. Obsession lives to ruin them both.
Cora Kenborn writes romantic suspense novels with strong heroines, complex alphas, harrowing danger, and snappy banter. She is the author of the rock star stalker series, Lords of Lyre but refuses to be pigeon holed into one specific genre. She loves delving into the twisted mind of a dark villain as well as giggling while writing rom-com banter.
Cora lives in Eastern North Carolina and is a true Southern girl, growing up on sweet tea, front porches, and the simple life. She says “y’all,” “fixin’ to,” and should you deserve it, will “bless your heart.” She’s the proud mother three hyperactive and occasionally adorable children, and the wife of a husband who tolerates her chaotic writer’s cave.
Although reading is her passion, she can usually be found watching true crime shows and crafting inspiration for twisted new tales. Cora admits to being a horrible cook, an even worse baker, and believes she’s more dangerous with a hot glue gun than any weapon on earth. Oh, and she and autocorrect are mortal enemies.

The coiled body behind me tensed, ready to detonate. Whoever defended me could hold his own, but I could still take everybody out with one flick of the wrist. Chivalry felt warm and fuzzy but I learned a long time ago that one hundred and fifty volts felt electric and twitchy.
Turning my chin to the side, I whispered on an exhale, “It’s fine, I’ve got this.”
A low laugh against my neck curled my toes.
“You so don’t got this.” His chest rumbled as a strong hand ran skilled fingers around my hair. I tilted my chin, watching his eyes harden. “You’re up my ass, shit-for-brains. Don’t ever touch what’s mine.” He shifted his lips against my ear. “Right, baby?”
One suitor tested my patience, but two pushed my limit. I opened my mouth to tell him off when he stole the moment and pressed his lips against mine. Resisting, I murmured veiled threats as he pulled me toward him. The impromptu kiss dissolved into failed waves of aggression, and I inexplicably responded to him. Before I knew it, I’d wrapped my arms around his neck.
After a few heartbeats of kissing a complete stranger, I finally regained what dignity I had left, shoved his chest, and faced him with fire blazing in my eyes. He snickered and waved as my aggressor stalked off. Shooting him a death glare, I reached for my drink. After scanning for witnesses, I brought it to my lips and drained it.
“Thirsty?” He smirked.
“What the hell was that?”
He snatched the drink out of my hands, giving me a wink before tipping it back for the last drop. “You weren’t exactly pushing me away. Besides, I just saved your ass. Heath Vaughn was inches from having a hand up that thing you call a dress.”
“I didn’t ask for your help!” I bit back. “I don’t even know who the hell you—wait, who?”
“Somebody had to step in or you’d have spent the night in jail with that concealed, illegal shit in your purse. You’re telling me you didn’t know that was Vaughn? Maybe because we haven’t time-warped back to his 1995 five minutes of fame.” He walked past me with a smirk plastered across his face.
 Struggling to catch up with him, I grabbed his shoulder in disbelief. “That’s a joke, right?”
“Afraid not. Vaughn in the flesh, and apparently in the sauce too. Why do you care so much what he thinks?” He eyed me curiously, his jade-green eyes knocking me breathless.
Finally allowing myself a full look at him, I quickly averted my eyes before he could see my racing pulse reflected in them. Chaotic chocolate spiked hair pointed in every direction and hinted at a carefully constructed morning-after look. A small silver earring caught flashes of light in the darkness and tattoos decorated each uncovered arm.
Remembering to breathe became a chore.
“Because I’m screwed!” I shouted, frantically waving my phone. “My boss is already pissed at me, and I was supposed to meet Vaughn here for an interview, and—why am I telling you this?”
“Calm down.” He grinned, revealing a deep dimple in his left cheek. “Look, the dude’s so far tanked he won’t remember he was here, much less you were. Give me your phone.”
“I’m not giving you my phone. I don’t even know you.”
Rolling his eyes, he snatched my phone out of my hands. “Didn’t stop you from making out with me, did it?” He scanned the email I’d been checking all night. Typing furiously, his lips curved upward and he handed it back. “All fixed.”
“What did you do?” Thankfully, previous defense training taught me to never label emails with personal information. In the darkness, he’d never scroll back far enough to know my name.
“Why must you question brilliance?” he countered with a sigh. “You sent him an email concerned for his safety since he never showed for your interview. You waited but had to leave because you actually work for a living. You’d love to reschedule since you’re such a huge fan and were disappointed at the missed opportunity to hear all about his crap-ass reality show, since I assume that’s all he would’ve wanted to talk about.”
I could’ve kissed him—if I hadn’t already.
“You’re an evil genius.”
“So I’ve been told.”

SALE! 99 CENTS!

Hey bloggerverse! My book is on Sale now through Monday the 22nd for only 99 cents. If you like Paranormal books, this might be right up your alley. Here’s a little bit about Above the Flames!

Jasmine’s sixteenth birthday was the worst ever…

All in one day, her dad died, she met a demon, and her mother rejected her existence forever. After all, the demon who killed her dad was there to take her, and all because of her stupid powers—the ability to conjure blue flames.

Two years later, she’s happy. But happy never lasts…

After moving to Idaho to live with her grandparents, Jasmine has a new life. Almost nobody knows about her powers, and she’s just a normal teenager with normal problems. Then comes her eighteenth birthday—and the earthquake that changes her world forever.

An army of demons rise from Hell. And Jasmine is right in the middle of the battle…

When demons claw their way to Earth, Jasmine is surrounded by hundreds of fire-eyed beasts. Worse, she is captured by a big-shot demon named Bael. He’s a tricky foe with a chip on his shoulder—and the desire to make Jasmine use her powers for evil.

Amon is a fallen angel with an attitude—and everything to lose.

Successfully escaping the underworld undetected, Amon is on a quest to regain God’s grace when he rescues Jasmine from the clutches of a particularly nasty demon he knows all too well. The attraction between him and the not-entirely-human captive is instantaneous. Heavenly sparks fly, but ideas of romance will have to wait. First they have to stop the demon race from wiping out the mortal realm. Humanity’s fate rests in their hands.

Can two fallen angels rise above the flames to ensure a future for mankind? Or will Jasmine and Amon’s souls be bound together—in hell?

Review of Cursed by Nykki Mills

I was given a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Holy cow! I loved this book! So much, in fact, that I stayed up until 3AM to finish it. It was absolutely amazing! I can’t recommend this book enough to all of you out there who like a great, fast-paced, full of action and a little taste of horror read. Did I say it was amazing…because I can’t remember:)

Let me tell you why I loved it.

Gina-Okay, so this girl drove me bonkers, but definitely in a good way. I like when I go on a ride with the character and I definitely felt like I did that with Gina. She was so hell bent on accepting every bad thing in her life as normal that I felt horrible for all of the things she put herself through because of it. Absolutely amazing writing going on with this character. I felt what she felt and I was really rooting for her to just stop torturing herself because I could see how good of a person she actually was. The front she put on was just that.

Ben-A man with mystery. The truth is, Ben is just as tortured as Gina, he just hides it extremely well. It’s awesome though that he knows about this world and their chemistry is on fire! I found myself flipping through the pages to see if they ever gave in and took the plunge for that kiss I wanted them to have so badly. Smouldering moments between Ben and Gina for sure.

I hated Trent. All he was to me was an enabler.

Chance-He redeemed himself in my eyes and became a pretty good friend. Pretty cool although he was a pretty secondary character and we didn’t see a lot of him.

As for the lady in red…I couldn’t figure her out the whole story. I think Mills wrote her character extremely well to add a layer of mystery and kept me guessing the whole time. There were surprises along the way and I loved the story unfolding before my eyes.

The other bad guys were great too. Bad, jerky and extremely hateable…which I know isn’t a word but it just fits.

If you like YA Paranormal, ghosts and the whole scary story appeal, you will loved Cursed. I know I did. Just make sure you keep a light on when you read it.

If you haven’t got this already, I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next in the series!

So, definitely check out this book. It’s available today, August 2nd, On Amazon. Here’s the link: http://amzn.to/2aKCW5V

Review of Her Black Wings by AJ Norris

This book was great! Norris did a fantastic job pulling me in to this complicated world and I loved her descriptions!

Amalya was a very complex character. So many bad things had happened to her in her life and then she meets Elliott, who is in a bad place himself. Even through everything Amalya had endured she still had enough good in her to change things around her. Even though she hadn’t had the courage to do that in life, she does in death.

I just think that Elliott and Amalya are my new favorite book couple. I loved when they were together, how they communicated with each other. Sure, there were some issues but what relationship doesn’t have those? I think Norris did a great job making things believable.

I can’t wait for the next installment and would definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves angel and demon books!

Handling Bad Reviews

The picture I’ve chosen shows exactly how you should handle bad reviews. With grace and dignity because the truth of the matter is not everyone will like your book. I’ve been very fortunate so far with reviews, though. I’ve only had one two star rating…but I’m sure more will come.

When I first saw the two star, I got mad. I’m sure most of us authors do this. Then we start smack talking to a family or loved one, but when we calm down we realize it’s only one rating and who cares if they didn’t like it because thirty-nine others did. And that’s saying something, right?

Or…am I the only one who gets crazy mad? I could be, but I don’t think so. Putting ourselves out there for the world to see is hard. Exposing ourselves to others is hard too. For me, I put my heart and soul into the book I wrote and seeing someone not like it hurts, but it shouldn’t. Because as I said, not everyone will like your book.

A lot of other authors don’t ever even look at their reviews. I couldn’t do that. I have to look because I’m curious by nature. I’ve just learned to accept the fact that some people might respond differently than anticipated and that’s okay. Even Harry Potter got 1 and 2 star reviews and look how well J.K. Rowling did…

My best advice is this: No matter how mad you get when you see a bad review, don’t respond. It makes you look very unprofessional. Building your author brand is important, but going out and causing a scene over a bad review makes whatever name you’ve given yourself change. It takes on wrong move to make yourself into something else. If you remember nothing else from this blog post, remember that.

Have a fantastic weekend!!
