Blurb

It all began with a secret.
A cross of paths that altered a life.
Iris Malone had a plan of revenge. She searched for the man known as “The Savage.”
Chance Logan was one of the most promising heavyweight contenders on the planet. Her plan was simple, to make a savage fall to his knees. She would break his heart like he’d broken so many countless others before her.
But sometimes even the best laid plans can begin to unravel.
What happens when you fall for the enemy?
When you’re in danger of losing your heart to the man you promised to make suffer?
When lines are crossed, and it’s to late to turn back, you have no choice but to live with the decisions you make.
Will Iris’s plan for revenge ruin the chance at a love of a lifetime? Will she fight for a chance to love a savage or will she lose everything when the truth is finally revealed?
Someone is going down.
Someone would pay.
Do you care to place your bets as to who will be standing at the end of the final round?

Her life becomes altogether extraordinary when a seemingly benign morning excursion transforms into an agonizing race across Europe to save humanity. Soon, she must work against the clock to recreate an antidote to save mankind before nostalgic Nazi militias make good on their plan to create a legion of superhuman zombie-soldiers that will wreak havoc on mankind.

As the heir apparent to a family of masterminds, Floriana is the only one capable of thwarting their efforts, but first she’ll come face-to-face with black roses, presumptive killers, and mysterious sects.

With the fate of the world in her hands, can an inexperienced and clumsy art student create an antidote before it’s too late?

Find out in this adrenaline rushing, young adult thrill ride, chock full of espionage, conspiracy theories, spies, and zombies!

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Spooning Daisy by Maggie McConnell

 

Contemporary Romance (RomCom)

Date Published: June 7, 2016

Publisher:  Kensington (Lyrical Shine)

 

It’s a long way from Seattle to Otter Bite, Alaska. But if one woman can survive the trip-and the locals-she just might find what her heart has been searching for. Her mango chutney is exquisite; her blueberry sauce is to die for. But right now, Chef de Cuisine Daisy Moon is a woman without a kitchen-and without a fiancé. Unceremoniously dumped from her place of business and her relationship, Daisy sells her belongings, plus a few of her ex’s, and packs her bags. Maybe smashing all the china in her former restaurant was a bad move. Stripped of her Golden Spoon for “un-chef-like” conduct, she is now blacklisted all over Seattle. Her sole job offer is from Wild Man Lodge…in Otter Bite, Alaska. Too bad Daisy can’t even get out of Dodge without incident. By the time she boards a ship for Alaska, she’s got a trail of new troubles behind her, and suddenly Otter Bite is sounding pretty good. But the vessel turns into her own personal Titanic when a series of close encounters confirms her terrible taste in men-including one very good looking bad luck charm named Max Kendall. She vows to dedicate the rest of her days to chowders and brulée. Yet even Alaska isn’t far enough away to shake the memories of the sexy shipmate who rocked her cabin-and her world. Thank goodness she’s done with surprises-but they may not be done with her…

Excerpt

“I had apple strudel. I never have apple strudel. It’s not my usual.”

“You came here to tell me you had apple strudel?”

“The thing is…I liked it. For a change, I mean. Once. Not every day, of course.”

“Max–”

“The truth is…” He stepped toward her. “The truth is…I feel bad about giving you such a hard time at breakfast.”

“Ohhhh. This is an apology.”

“No, absolutely not.” Max retracted the step he’d just taken. “This is absolutely NOT an apology.”

Daisy huffed. Normally, she’d take great satisfaction in Max’s guilt and take equal pleasure in the banter that would surely follow. However, she was a woman on a mission, and she didn’t have the time, not with Otter Bite hanging by a manila envelope. “Fine. Thank you for coming here NOT to apologize and for that apple strudel thing. And–” She momentarily softened. “–the money. But I just don’t have the time for whatever this is.”

Once again he stepped toward her. “You’re making this extremely difficult.”

This? This what? What am I making–”

This.” The word melted into her mouth.

The two hundreds floated from her hand to the floor. Then, her arms wrapped Max’s neck, his body pressed hers, and Daisy was lost in a kiss she never expected to own.

Author Bio

india-r-adams


India R Adams
is an author/singer/songwriter who has written YA and NA novels, and the music for the Forever series.

India was born and raised in Florida but has also been so lucky as to live in Idaho (where she froze but fell in love with the small town life), Austin Texas (where she started her first book, Serenity, and met wonderful artist), and now Murphy, North Carolina (where the mountains have stolen a piece of her heart).

Being a survivor of abuse, has inspired India to let others know they have nothing to be ashamed of. She put her many years of professional theater background to the test and has written fictional stories with a shadow of her personal experiences. She says, “I’m simply finding ways to empower perfect imperfections.”

Another cause India feels needs change, is Sexual Slavery. She has joined forces with jewelers to design beautiful ways to raise money for non-profit organizations. Even though India writes about serious subjects such as domestic violence, sexual abuse, and Human Trafficking, she has a magnificent sense of humor, as do the characters she creates. Perfectly balanced between laughter and tears, her readers see how to empower their own perfect imperfections.

Fun Facts

 

  1. Misry’s character in the book Grow Up Messy! is that of an innocent child who depends more on her mother for her smaller needs. The best part is she expects her mother to be know everything just like the superwoman. She believes there is nothing which her Ma cannot do or hasn’t seen. So when she requests her mother to make Pinjiri, something which she had tasted for the first time elsewhere, it never occurred to her that Ma might not know about its preparation.

This particular scene from the book is very close to my heart. Although the entire episode is very funny but it actually depicts the trust of a child in the mother. Something which no one can ever challenge. I see my son in this episode sometimes.

 

  1. Children enjoy being dirty. We have done it so many times in our days yet as a parent if we see our child playing in the soil we try to stop him immediately. The same thing our mothers might have also done with us while we enjoyed. Isn’t it strange, when we grow up we follow our mothers so blindly.

There is an episode in the book where Misry plays in the muddy pool and ruins her fresh clothes. No doubt her mother is mad at her.

 

  1. Children have a very special place for animals in their heart. Whether they have pets at home or not but whenever they get a chance to pet an animal they will never stop themselves. I wish as we grow up we shouldn’t lose this emotion within us. It actually makes us more humane.

In the book, Misry befriends a sacrificial  animal as her pet what follows next is very         heart wrenching. Continue reading

YOU CAN’T HURRY LOVE
by Lee Kilraine
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 9/19/2017
In Climax, North Carolina,
climbing the professional ladder means making the right connections.
And Paxton Cates is about to form a partnership he never expected . .
.
While his brothers have found their
true loves, Paxton remains stubbornly single, and it’s not helping
his career. Sure, he’s a successful lawyer, but to become a judge
you’ve got to mingle with the right crowds—and without a partner
at his side, he’s not getting enough invitations. He needs someone,
and soon. Someone like Jolene Joyner . . .
Jolene, a local high school English
teacher, has a history of driving Paxton crazy. She’s just too
perfect—and she’s never let him forget it. But now Ms. Goody
Two-Shoes is in trouble for the first time in her life, and she needs
a lawyer. He’ll take her case—if she’ll play by his rules. Six
months of socializing should do the trick—if they can convince
everyone they’ve put aside their animosity and fallen madly in
love. Then they can go their separate ways.
The only problem is that Jolene seems
to have developed a taste for bad behavior . . . especially where
Paxton is concerned. And instead of just a pretty partner in
deception, he’s got himself a new client who’s anything but
innocent . . .
