Before Today (Superstar DJ Series Book #1) - Release Date Info and Pre-Order Details are now here!

Yes, after almost eight months without even a sniff of a new release from me, I'm back with a brand new book, and a brand new series! 

Before Today is the first book in the Superstar DJ Series, and it's out on June 5th! 




Blurb

The last thing freelance photographer Nina expected to find herself doing was following a dance DJ around Europe. She was more used to photographing rock stars and models, in fact, that’s what she was supposed to be doing this summer – hitting some of the biggest music festivals and photographing some of the world’s hottest rock stars. Instead, she’s playing the good Samaritan. Doing a friend a favor. And now she’s about to spend the next couple of months around people she doesn’t know, music she doesn’t like, in a world she knows nothing about. But, in a way, she could do with the distraction.

For too long Nina had been a magnet for the wrong kind of man. Men who’d made her cynical about love, ruined her belief in happy-ever-afters, so immersing herself in a whole new world, just for a little while – yeah, she was more than ready for that. More than ready to put her career first, and relationships on hold. What she wasn’t ready for was Yves Vandale…

Yves Vandale is about to make his comeback after two years away. A huge name on the electronic dance music scene, he’s all set to kick off his Ibiza residency in one of the islands top clubs, and get back to doing what he loves – playing some of the biggest dance music festivals in Europe. All he wants is to get back behind the decks, and leave his past – his reasons for taking that two year break – behind. He’s more than ready to get back out there. But what he isn’t ready for is Nina…

Both Yves and Nina think they’ve got their new futures planned.
They haven’t.
They both think their lives are back on track.
They're both wrong.

All Nina was looking for was a new challenge.
All Yves needed was a new start.
Neither of them got what they wanted.
But you know what they say about best laid plans...

From the beaches, bars and clubs of Ibiza to the dance festivals of Europe, ‘Before Today’ is the first book in the Superstar DJ series.


**While various characters over the course of the series will appear in many of the books, all books in the series will be separate, standalone stories.**

πŸ“š99p/$0.99 Featured Book of the Month - 'Reckless'πŸ“š

It's time for a brand new Book of the Month, and this time the focus is on red hot rockstar romance 'Reckless'!




A Vegas pole dancer with a shocking secret.
A hot-as-hell rock star with a reputation.
He saw her.
He wanted her.
He got her.
Eventually...

He doesn't know what she's done.
She doesn't know what he's capable of.
It doesn't matter.
'Cause falling in love, that was never an option.

Lily Mae - strong, beautiful, but damaged.
Seth Carter - an arrogant son-of-a-b***h who’s used to having anything he wants, including women. And what Seth Carter wants, Seth Carter gets, because no woman’s ever rejected him.

Lily did. At first.

She made him work, but she sure as hell was worth it. ‘Cause when it came down to it, they both wanted the same thing – no ties. No commitment. Just low-down dirty sex; someone to play with, until the boredom kicked in, ‘cause it always did, where Seth Carter was concerned.

But as their relationship unexpectedly shifts course, the game changes. They change. And as Lily’s sucked deeper into Seth’s rock star world, she struggles to keep her secret, and a game which started out being played on her terms suddenly switches to his as Seth realizes that his beautiful young plaything is way, way more than that. And he wants to keep her.

She let herself fall for a man who was nothing but bad for her. A man who caused her to become careless, because she saw nothing but him. A danger she ignored. 

Lily Mae isn’t who she says she is.
Seth kind of knew that.

And as the truth about who Lily really is – and what she did – finally comes to light, is Seth Carter the man who can save her? Or the one who destroys her…?

***Please be aware that Reckless contains strong language, heavy sex scenes, and adult content which may cause triggers for some. Suitable ONLY for readers 18+***

Meet the Author - Rachel Dove

Today I'm really happy to have the lovely Rachel Dove here on my blog to help her celebrate the release of her latest book The Fire House on Honeysuckle Street, which is out today! 



Blurb

Lucy is looking for a fresh start.
Sam is in search of his past.
But what they both need most might turn out to be each other.

The picturesque village of Westfield is about to welcome some new residents.
Sam has transferred from London to the local Fire Brigade, but his move has more to it than a desire to escape city life. There are answers Sam needs to find and the village is the place to look.

Lucy is at the end of her tether. Between her marriage falling apart and single-handedly dealing with her son's special needs, Lucy knows something has to change. Westfield might juts be the new beginning she needs...


And now it's time to hear from Rachel herself...



They say write what you know, and when Harper Collins asked me if I would consider writing another book in the Westfield series, I knew what I wanted to do. In The Long Walk Back, I wrote about a soldier, and I really wanted to write a male character who was calm, controlled, kind and...well, buff. I normally get my inspiration for books from characters first. They come say hello, and tell me their story.

This story was not just about a couple meeting, and following their path. It was about Xander. Autism is a big part of my life, personally and professionally, and I wanted to tell their story. Xander is a combination of my own two children, and their little ways come out through him. In today's diverse times, people are wanting their stories told, and I wanted to contribute to this in a non preachy way. Hopefully, my readers will love him just as much as I do.

Autistic people are not all like Rain Man, in fact I rather detest that film for its dated portrayal. Being a parent of a child who is 'different' will test every ounce of strength they have, and more. I find myself saying things to my children that I never thought I would say. "Stop licking the fence!" or "I'm sorry, he doesn't mean it like that." My son Book Worm will tell me point blank when I look rubbish, or correct me when I am wrong. He will ask total strangers what the mole on their face is, and both of them not only see the elephant in the room, but they hug it, and make friends. They ask embarrassing questions, and often twirl or spin down the street. My youngest punched a llama once whilst trying to hug it, and then I almost punched the judgemental mum set of onlookers. It's not for sissies, I tell you, and that's why I wanted to have Xander in this book. I hope my readers love him too, and he doesn't detract too much attention from the rather hunky fireman, who is the real star of the story, along with Lucy, his mother. With Lucy, 'normal' is a dirty word. I concur. 




The Fire House on Honeysuckle Street is available to download now, and will also be available in paperback from July 11th. Check out the links below to grab your copy!





Thank you so much for stopping by, Rachel, and I wish you lots of luck with the release of The Fire House on Honeysuckle Street!

πŸ“šFeatured Book Of The Month - 'Breathe Into Me'πŸ“š

For this month's book in the spotlight, I've chosen the highly emotional, super-sexy movie star romance, 'Breathe Into Me'
From the beaches of Malibu to the red carpets of Hollywood, it's a story of love, lust, secrets, and betrayal, perfect for those who love a little escapism...

And right now, you can download 'Breathe Into Me' for the special Book of the Month price of just 99p/$1.29!



Quinn Baxter has it all – beautiful, talented and one of the highest paid actors in L.A. she’s living the Hollywood dream, alongside her movie star husband, Aaron Rogers; hot, handsome and as much in demand as she is. For ten years they’ve been crazy in love. For ten years their marriage has been one of the strongest in Hollywood. For ten years they’ve been happy. Ten years ago Quinn put pain and tragedy behind her to begin again, and Aaron, he saved her. He saved her, from a man who almost destroyed her. A man Quinn has never really let go of, no matter what those around her might have thought. So when he comes back into their lives in the most public way possible, it opens up a web of lies, betrayal and tragic secrets that threaten everything. Decisions made in the past come back to haunt the present, fiction starts to mirror reality, and real lives being torn apart suddenly makes great publicity in a world where box office receipts matter, and the truth rarely does.

Quinn was saved, once, from a man who almost destroyed her.
Now she just might need saving all over again… 







So, if you're looking for some hot Hollywood action at a bargain price, 'Breathe Into Me' is available to download for only 99p/$1.29 until the end of April!

It's also *FREE* to read with Kindle Unlimited!

⭐COVER REVEAL - 'BEFORE TODAY'⭐

Today I'm revealing the cover for my upcoming new music-inspired romance 'Before Today'. And here it is! ☀️




Nina Freeman - successful freelance photographer, and a magnet for the wrong kind of man. Cynical about romance and in no hurry to find love, the only thing she wants to be married to is her career.

Yves Vandale - famous Belgian dance DJ. 
Getting ready to make his comeback after a two year break, all he wants is to get back to the music, and leave his past behind.

They both think they've got their new futures planned. 
They both think their lives are back on track.

They're both wrong.

All Nina was looking for was a new challenge.
All Yves needed was a new start.
Neither of them got what they wanted.
But you know what they say about best laid plans...



'Before Today' is a love story heavily influenced by music. A story that will take readers from the beaches, bars and clubs of Ibiza to the dance festivals of Europe. And you can check out the music that inspired Yves and Nina's story right HERE on Spotify.

Guest Author Interview - Thomas Samson


I'm excited to say that kicking off my Guest Author feature this month is Thomas Samson, author of the super-sexy soccer romance 'Playing Offside'.




Read on to find out more about the book, and Thomas himself in my Guest Author Interview...


Author Bio


I'm the author of 'Playing Offside', a biography type novel about a fictional professional footballer, and 'Grande Plage', a short story, again, about a professional footballer falling in love one summer in France. 

As you'll see from what I write, I'm an avid football fan, especially of Liverpool FC.

Away from writing, I love taking pictures of sunrises, when I'm up in time to see them, and sunsets. My wife says it's a weird obsession that she doesn't get. Each to their own thing. I also enjoy spending time with my wife and our two sons.



Author Interview


What inspired you to write ‘Playing Offside’, and can you tell us a little bit about the book?

I was a fan of the cartoon strip Striker” which was mainly about the life of fictional footballer Nick Jarvis. I followed that strip for years. I was also a big fan of TV series “Dream Team” which was on Sky One years ago. And like any young lad, I dreamed of being a footballer. Sadly that never happened, so with Striker and Dream Team as inspiration, I created the character of Shane Henderson and lived my dream through him in Playing Offside.
The original idea was to write a series of books about Shane’s life and I actually published Playing Offside as two books under a pseudonym. But when writing the third part and doing some back-story work, I took a big dislike to the second part. So I rewrote it, dropped the pseudonym and published it as the book it is now.

Are any of the characters in the book based on any real-life footballers?

Shane is purely fictional but there’s a little of Steven Gerrard in him, the young inspirational captain with a huge love of the club he plays for.

If ‘Playing Offside’ was made into a film, who would be your ideal cast?

Former Home & Away star Dan Ewing would play Shane. Handsome but a little bit rugged, just how I pictured Shane to be when writing him. Mia Rodrigues is Shane’s best friend, boss and for some parts of the book, his lover. She’s be played by model and TV presenter Kelly Brook, mainly because she was the visual muse I used when picturing how Mia looked.
Shane’s estranged wife April Flowers would be played by former actress and controversial Big Brother contestant Roxanne Pallet. I actually had a picture of how April looked before any other character in the book and Roxanne is a very close match.
Former Emmerdale star Natalie Anderson would play Shelby Cooper, Shane’s other love interest.


Do you have any plans to write any more books based around the characters in ‘Playing Offside’?

I hope to write the next part in the life of Shane Henderson one day. I have a few chapters in draft but finding the time is harder than it was when I wrote the first book.


Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, and what made you want to start writing?

I’ve been with Marianne for nearly 28 years, married for almost 23 of those years. We have two sons, one coming 15 this year and the other coming nine. After 30 years in the motor trade, I took a career change last year and now work in Events Safety and also serve as a Community Councillor for my local area.
I initially used writing as an escape from reality. I’ve always had a good imagination and writing short stories about the characters in my head seemed to come easy. But I never wanted to be a writer. A few years back, I wrote a short story for the blog I had at the time. An old friend suggested publishing it, so I did. That then led to me writing the initial concept which eventually became Playing Offside.

Do you have a designated writing space?

I wish I did but I don’t. Playing Offside was mostly written in the wee small hours or at the crack of dawn, when I had peace to do so. These days, I don’t seem to have the time to dedicate to writing.

Have you ever wanted to try writing a book in a different genre? If so, what would that genre be?

I’m a huge fan of James Bond and the Mission: Impossible films. I’d love to create my own 007 or Ethan Hunt. Being an old fashioned romantic though, there would still be some adult themed romance somewhere.

Are there any other authors who have influenced/inspired you?

Well, I did read your Striker series and that both influenced and inspired me with getting Playing Offside done. And it wasn’t as much as influencing or inspiring, more like encouragement from that previously mentioned old friend, who is also an author.

And finally, are you working on any new writing projects at the minute, and if you are, can you tell us anything about them?

I’ve had a story on the backburner now for a few years. It’s again set in the world of football but revolves around the women's game. I’ve actually got about enough material written on that for maybe four or five chapters. One day, maybe.


'Playing Offside' - and 'Grande Plage' - are both available to buy from Amazon.

Huge thanks to Thomas for stopping by! Watch out for more Guest Author posts coming soon!
