Except that NiceGirl attracts the attention of London publisher Mark Bell. Handsome, charming and successful, Mark is soon offering Claire the life she’s always dreamed of – a steady relationship, the literary world of London and a hot book deal.

But when Claire enlists the help of brooding artist Luca to brush up on her sex skills before Mark discovers she’s a fraud, things begin to get complicated …

Synopsis

An eye for an eye…

My name is Archer Black, and I have a confession.

For as long as I can remember, my life has revolved around getting revenge against Senator Thomas Wharton.

It was supposed to be easy. Uncover his secrets. End his political career. Ruin his Presidential campaign. Use his stepdaughter, Langley Mayer, to do it. She’s also my stepsister, but she doesn’t know that. Nobody does.

But nothing is as easy as it seems. When my high-stakes plan for revenge takes a deadly turn, I’m the only person standing between Langley and the people who want her dead. Time is running out, and I need to decide what I need more: love or revenge.

glitterbase (9)
Alivia Jones set out to New York to become rich and successful. Her dream to work on Wall Street happened but left her heart empty. She sold her soul to the CEO of Financial Freedom, Brent Atwood. He had everything to give a woman except his heart. He referred to their relationship as a perfect arrangement. Her emotional struggle to stay with him tore her apart until she realized he didn’t own her.

 

Alivia quit her job, ended her ‘arrangement’ and left for Sunset Beach for her tenth reunion. There she’d left a broken-hearted Jacob Adams. Hesitant to see him again quickly disappeared with one sunset, one kiss. Will sunset kisses and one crazy idea with her best friends keep her in Sunset Beach?


glitterbase (4)

 

There were no clouds in the sky. Jacob felt it to be a sign of promise for a calm, peaceful night. His wish for her to return had come true. This time he wished for her to stay. As he got closer he inhaled her scent deeply as the ocean breeze carried it to his senses.
“Liv.”
She turned and smiled. “Jacob, just in time.”
She said no more as she held out her hand to him. He reached for it. Her fingers intertwined with his and he stepped up beside her. Silence remained as they watched the sunset just as they had so many times. It felt like she’d never left. No matter how much time had passed and wherever their lives had taken them, it no longer mattered. Their special spot remained theirs. Jacob smiled as the tip of the sun drifted beyond the horizon. He laughed.
“What’s so funny?” Alivia’s eyes met his.
He smiled. “Just remembering when we were kids and you thought the sun sunk and the water put out the fire.”
Alivia chuckled. “I was five!” she protested.
Jacob reached for her other hand. He lifted them both to his lips.
“I’ve missed you, Liv.”
Her eyes filled. She smiled.
“I missed you, Jacob. “Her eyes locked onto his gaze. She’d always been the most beautiful part of the sunset. He kissed her hands as he held them against his lips. He watched a single
tear fall upon her cheek. He leaned in and brushed his lips gently against her cheek to wipe it away. His head tipped down to rest upon hers. Her heart beat against him and his eyes closed. Silently he prayed her heart belonged to him. His heart belonged to no other.

Rocco Excerpt

We didn’t speak as she walked towards me. She took a washcloth and held it under the water. She raised it to my cheek, holding it over the graze. The control I had exerted inside for so long gave way to an overwhelming desire for her. It had been two years that I had watched her grow into a woman, two years of holding back, of knowing she wanted me and resisting her.

I closed my eyes and sighed. I turned and took a step towards her. I rested my forehead on hers as she bunched my shirt in her hands. It wasn’t a conscious movement but my hand snaked around her waist, gripping the t-shirt she was wearing. Her smell was intoxicating and my senses spiralled out of control. I nuzzled into her neck; her warm skin met my lips. My tongue trailed a path across her jawbone finding her mouth. She welcomed me in. As our kiss deepened I walked her backwards, pressing her against the wall. I needed the wall for support. And then I heard a small moan, a moan of pleasure.

Blog Tour: Moonlight Rider by Charlotte Boyett Compo

KEYNOTE


Declan Farrell, earl of Dungannon and the famous highwayman known as “the Gypsy,” is about to have his heart stolen by the very woman he intends not to marry.

 

BACK COVER COPY:
STAND AND DELIVER
Declan Farrell, earl of Dungannon and the son of the duke of Arlington, is a nobleman of the highest order, dissolute and a thief. He is a drinker and a lover, and at night he is “the Gypsy,” a highwayman who prowls from the city of Boreas to Chappendale Forest.
And yet, his heart is true. Impelled by a tragic past, he steals from the rich and gives to the poor, offers hope to those who cannot fight their fate. So much was taken from him, which is why he gives. He himself is undeserving of love and happiness, but there are those who are worthy, like Lady Althea Standfield, daughter to the duke of Oxmoor. Independent and kind, beautiful and smart, she must be freed from the obligation of marrying him. His heart might be stolen by a woman of such fine form and finer character…but his heart is all that he has left, and it is perfectly protected.

 

 

She licked her lips—wondering what his would taste like. How the sculpted muscles that undulated beneath the wet shirt would feel against her palms. How tight those brawny arms would hold her.
His smile widened, became knowing and he began to slide his hand slowly up and down the handle of the pitchfork in a suggestive way.
Althea stumbled away from the window, turned then looked wildly about her.
She had to have him.
Declan Farrell.
She must have him whether he was willing or not.
If it was the last thing she ever did, she would claim that man as her own!

Spotlight: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

 

RARITY FROM THE HOLLOW

 Author: Robert Eggleton

Publisher: Doghorn Publishing

 Published 2012

 

Lacy Dawn is a true daughter of Appalachia, and then some. She lives in a hollow with her worn-out mom, her Iraq War disabled dad, and her mutt Brownie, a dog who’s very skilled at laying fiber optic cable. Lacy Dawn’s android boyfriend, DotCom, has come to the hollow with a mission. His equipment includes infomercial videos of Earth’s earliest proto-humans from millennia ago. DotCom has been sent by the Manager of the Mall on planet Shptiludrp: he must recruit Lacy Dawn to save the Universe in exchange for the designation of Earth as a planet which is eligible for continued existence within a universal economic structure that exploits underdeveloped planets for their mineral content. Lacy Dawn’s magic enables her to save the universe, Earth, and, most importantly, her own family.

Reviews

Rarity From The Hollow is written in a simple declarative style that’s well- suited to the imaginary diary of a desperate but intelligent eleven-year-old – the story bumping joyfully between the extraordinary and the banal.

The central planet of the universe is a vast shopping mall, and Lacy Dawn must save her world from a menace that arrives in the form of a cockroach infestation. Look again and the space alien has made Daddy smart and happy – or at least an eleven year old girl’s notion of what a smart and happy man should be. He has also made Mommy beautiful, giving her false teeth and getting the food stamp lady off her back.

About the only thing in the book that is believable is the nature of the narrative voice, and it is utterly compelling. You find yourself convinced that “Hollow” was written as a diary-based autobiography by a young girl and the banal stems from the limits of her environment, the extraordinary from her megalomania. And that’s what gives Rarity From The Hollow a chilling, engaging verisimilitude that deftly feeds on both the utter absurdity of the characters’ motivations and on the progression of the plot.

Indeed, there are moments of utter darkness: In one sequence, Lacy Dawn remarks matter-of-factly that a classmate was whipped to death, and notes that the assailant, the girl’s father, had to change his underpants afterward because they were soiled with semen. Odd, and often chilling notes, abound.

As I was reading it, I remembered when I first read Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle” at the age of 14. A veteran of Swift, Heller, and Frederick Brown, I understood absurdist humour in satire, but Vonnegut took that understanding and turned it on its ear.

In the spirit of Vonnegut, Eggleton (a psychotherapist focused on the adolescent patient) takes the genre and gives it another quarter turn. A lot of people hated Vonnegut, saying he didn’t know the rules of good writing. But that wasn’t true. Vonnegut knew the rules quite well, he just chose to ignore them, and that is what is happening in Eggleton’s novel, as well.

Not everyone will like Rarity From The Hollow. Nonetheless, it should not be ignored.

—————— 

The most enjoyable science fiction novel I have read in several years

Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton is the most enjoyable science fiction novel I have read in several years. Who could think of an intergalactic handbook for entrepreneurs? Who could turn a tree-hugger into a paranormal event of death-defying significance? Who could create characters so believable, so funny, so astonishingly human (and not)?

Robert Eggleton, that’s who.

I put this book on my IPhone, and it followed me everywhere for several days. Strangers smiled politely at my unexpected laughter in the men’s room toilet stall. They looked away as I emerged, waving the IPhone at them as if it might explain something significant.

Oddly, the novel explains a great deal that has become significant in our society. Rarity from the Hollow is satire at its best and highest level. It is a psychological thriller, true to traits of mankind (and other species). It is an animal rights dissertation (you will laugh when you understand why I write that). It celebrates the vilest insect on earth (make that Universe).

The characters created by Robert Eggleton will bug your brain long after you smoke, uh, read the final page. Thanks for the laughs, the serious thoughts, the absolute wonder of your mind, Mr. Eggleton. A truly magnificent job.
