Guest Spot: Mirror Image Seduction By Tamsin Baker and Khloe Wren


Blurb:
Dylan and Ryan are cheetah shapeshifter twins. They never expected to be the first of their siblings to find their mate. So they weren’t looking when they scented her at their local pub, but they knew instantly that Lacey was destined to be theirs. Unfortunately, she’s a reporter chasing the story behind a mysterious rescue of a young boy by ‘big spotty cats’. 

Lacey is a debut journalist working her first big story. Getting to the bottom of this ‘wild cats in the Grampians’ story could be the big break she’s been waiting for. The story leads her to a set of gorgeous twins that make her heart race. Their electric chemistry pulls her in, and by the time she learns they're shapeshifters and the cats responsible for the rescue, she’s torn on how to report it. 

But her story isn’t the only thing she has to worry about. Lacey’s ex isn’t ready to let her go, and when he sees her with her new men, he takes drastic measures to get her back.



Excerpt:
The hair on the back of her neck had begun to tingle, and in a rush Lacey grabbed her bag and looked towards the exit. She’d come out to the bar, hoping to ask someone about the mysterious Ryan and Dylan. She hadn’t expected to run into them both here, or to be turning tail and running in the opposite direction as soon as she found what she’d been looking for.
She hunched over, trying to make herself smaller as she snuck out of the booth. She couldn’t resist once last glance at the twins before she left. On a gasp she nearly tripped when she saw both of their intense gazes were on her.
She squeaked and moved faster, her heart pounding against her ribs. She shoved open the door and burst out into the warm night air, gulping oxygen into her burning lungs.
Oh shit. They’d seen her staring at them.
Oh pull yourself together. With how good they looked, it wouldn’t be the first time they’d had someone, especially a woman staring at them.
Just as she stepped from the concrete footpath onto the parking lot, something growled near her ear moments before large hands gripped her hips and twisted her around so she was facing the side wall of the bar. Her handbag landed at her feet, and she raised her palms to push against the brick wall to prevent her face slamming into the solid surface.
“No! Stop! Let me go!” She screamed as the man behind her pinned her body against the rough bricks with his and placed his hands over hers, lacing their fingers together.
Adrenaline was pumping through her system, making her heart pound and sweat bead on her forehead. She should have been fighting, screaming for help, but some perverse instinct inside her craved more. It made her want to push back against the strong body pinning her in place.
“Where you goin’, beautiful?”
His voice was so deep that his words were barely more than a garbled growl, but she somehow understood what he’d said. The hairs on her neck rose once more, in response to the depth of possession that radiated from his tone.
“You’re scaring her, Dylan. Cut it out.”
Lacey panted as she looked toward the new voice. Like his twin, Ryan was gorgeous and sexy, but considerably calmer and more in control.
Unlike her, or the man behind her.
“He’s not … scaring me.”
Strong desire, like she’d never experienced before, raced through her system. Just like what happened in her favorite romance novels, it was instant, electric and all consuming. Fire was in her blood, lighting her up from the inside out, centering in her pussy and taking root there.
Dylan nipped at her ear, and she moaned, letting her eyes slide shut as another, stronger, wave of arousal flowed through her. Her knees began to collapse on her, but before she could fall to the ground, a thick muscular arm whipped around her waist and held her tight against a hard hot body. Dylan’s erection now pressed into the cleft of her ass in a way that made her instinctively arch back into his embrace while whimpering a little.

Author bio’s:
Tamsin Baker loves everything erotic. Her books can be long, short and everything in between, but they’ll all be fast paced with snappy dialogue and lots of sex. No Tamsin Baker book is the same except there won’t be a lot of angst in as she wants her books to be everything that a fictional world can be- full of happy ever afters, dirty words and sweet love. ‘Love is love’ and she tries to show that in a range of sub genre’s, from m/m contemporary to paranormal ménage. She has a need to shock people and bring up embarrassing topics at the most inappropriate times.

Khloe Wren started writing her first novel in high school, until it mysteriously disappeared from the family computer (her older brother was the lead suspect but nothing was ever proved). She didn't put pen to paper again after that for a number of years but she did keep reading. Khloe has always loved all things paranormal: sexy vampires and sultry shifters have always been her favourites. So when she picked up writing again, it seemed only natural she would write paranormal romance.

Khloe grew up in the Adelaide Hills before her parents moved the family to country South Australia when she was a teen. As a young adult Khloe moved to Melbourne. After a few years she missed the fresh air and space of country living so moved back. Khloe currently lives in the Murraylands, South Australia with her incredibly patient husband and two young daughters. When she's not sitting at her laptop writing, she's spending time with family or friends, kicking butt at karate or feeding her addictions of reading, eating chocolate and drinking Coke.

He’d do more than sort that one out. He’d never work with that building company again. Emily gave him a nod and began to back away. His belly clenched and his breath caught in his throat. No. Stop! “Emily, we should talk about Saturday night.” “No.” She practically fired the word at him, then shook her head and stared at the ground, red highlighting her high cheekbones. “I mean about Eleanor’s House. I believe I may have over reacted to what you said to everyone.” She stopped backing away and glanced up, her eyes bright and wary. Something twisted deep in his chest. He swallowed hard. “No, I was wrong to push you, Nate. I know I was. Whatever happened… I take responsibility for.” He shrugged and let his lips lift into a semblance of a smile. He was giving her an apology and an out, and she wasn’t taking it. He liked that. “Well, let’s forget about it and you can tell me more about your career aspirations over dinner.” “Oh. No Nate, we shouldn’t. I mean…” He chuckled and stood up, rounding his desk and heading towards her. He didn’t stop when she gasped and jumped away from him, just kept moving forward, reaching out to shut the door and looked directly at her for the first time. “Oh, I’m Nate again, am I?” She softly whacked him on the chest. “Stop it, you know what I mean.” “No, what do you mean?” She glared at him, that fire that he so loved about her, returning. “I mean… we can’t go out for dinner again!” “Why not?” “Because you’re my client and it would be inappropriate.” He heaved a sigh and stuck both hands into his trouser pockets. Those same excuses were not going to fly with him now. He’d tasted her lips, held her body through the best night’s sleep he’d had in decades and he missed her. He couldn’t continue like this.

New Release by Avery Gale!

Tonight you get a new book boyfriend! ;)

The fabulous Avery Gale has a brand new release this week! Dancing with Deception, book 2 in The Morgans- Pine Creek Montana is available for your reading pleasure.



Blurb:
Phillips is beautiful, brilliant, and hiding. Forced to suppress what she knows is one of the biggest medical discoveries in history, she flees to the majestic Rocky Mountains of western Montana. In picturesque Pine Creek, Montana the biggest battle she faces is her undeniable attraction to the local sheriff. A relationship with Brandt Morgan is a recipe for disaster on many levels. The only other man who had ever captured her interest was a man she met briefly two years ago. Fate prevented her from following through after meeting Ryan Morgan, and it appears to be hell bent on blocking her yet again.


Cousins Ryan and Brandt may have met Joelle under different circumstances, but their interest is the same. The cousins made a vow years ago to share a wife—will that long ago promise stand the test of time? And, can they, their families, and friends keep her safe from a high profile enemy long enough to find out?

Excerpt:
Joelle looked around the enormous main room of the Prairie Winds Club and couldn’t hold back her smile.  The place was huge and the decorations were perfect for the Hill Country of Texas.  She saw several stage areas and a good-sized dance floor, but the feature that caught her eye was the metal spiral staircase.  The cutouts along the side depicted various western scenes and the entire piece was nothing short of spectacular.  Before she could take in everything around her, she was being led to what looked like a bar right out of…damn, what was that show?

Ryan leaned close to speak to her and she could hear the amusement in his voice.  “I can see the question in your eyes—yes, the bar was fashioned to resemble Miss Kitty’s in Gunsmoke.  This might not be Dodge City, but the West brothers didn’t seem to care if they were borrowing facts.”  Joelle listened as introductions were made, but it was the tiny blonde bombshell standing between the West brothers who captured her attention.  Tobi West had an almost pained expression on her pretty face Joelle recognized all too well.  Damn, we interrupted something. 
Tobi still hadn’t pulled herself together when a pretty Latino woman stepped up beside her.  The men introduced her to Gracie McDonald and one of her husbands, Jax McDonald.  Jax took one look at Tobi and laughed.  “Damn, sweet cheeks, did your Masters wind you up and leave you floating in the breeze again?”  Joelle had to swallow her giggle when Tobi growled at him.  The sterner of Tobi’s husbands warned her about her surly behavior but it didn’t seem to bother the petite blonde much. 
Gracie stood on her tiptoes to whisper in Jax’s ear and he turned stroking the side of her face in a move so filled with affection Joelle found herself staring at them.  “Yes, carinõ, I think that’s an excellent idea.  But stay in the lit areas, you know your other Master is in the control room, don’t give him a reason to call me.”  Control room?  Oh my, what kind of place is this?  The women grabbed drinks, making sure Joelle got something as well before leading her out the back door. 
“Oh my God.  This is spectacular.”  Joelle couldn’t hold back her surprise.  The landscaping alone looked like something out of a movie.  She read the sign directing people to the Forum Shops which Tobi explained catered to all things “kinky” including everything from the most extreme fet-wear to piercing and waxing services.  They settled into comfortable lounge chairs in an open area overlooking the broad expanse of the West’s backyard.  “Is that a lake?”  Darkness was quickly blocking out the view, but she was sure she’d seen the sparkle of lights dancing over the surface of the water. 
“It’s a river, but right here it’s actually pretty wide so I can see why you might wonder.  I wish we could go down to the gazebo, but there aren’t as many cameras there and I know Micah would call Jax and tattle on us.” 
Gracie shook her head.  “Don’t start Tobi, I’ve already told you, I don’t want to spend the whole week with a sore bum.”
“Bum?  Good Lord of the Leprechauns, you’re turning into a pansy-assed good girl…I’ll bet you’re even wearing panties.”  When Gracie laughed, Tobi continued, “That’s it, I’m going to have to get myself a new bestie.  Hanging out with you will destroy my reputation…and holy crap on a cannonball, what if it’s contagious?  Damn it to donuts, I’ll probably have nightmares about this now.  Thanks for nothing Miss Goody-Two-Shoes.”  Tobi let out a dramatic sigh that probably would have earned her an Oscar nomination in a different venue.  Holy shit could the girl ever put on a performance.  And Gracie’s look of righteous indignation just added to the comedic moment.  Joelle couldn’t hold it in a moment longer…she burst out laughing. 
Damn if felt good to laugh so hard the tension of the past few days finally drained away.  Joelle leaned back letting the strain she’d been under fall away.  “Holy hell, you two are good for the soul…has anyone ever told you that?  You make me miss my friend Coral even more.  She’s been my sounding board for months and now she’s off bouncing around tropical islands enjoying her honeymoon.” 
“Coral Williams?  Oh, I guess she is Coral Morgan now, isn’t she?”  When Joelle nodded, Tobi’s face lit up.  “I talked to her via web-cam.  She seems really sweet, but I think there is a firecracker under there you’re going to see bubble right up to the surface now that she’s safe.”  Turning to Gracie, she added, “Remember me telling you about all the drama in Montana?  Holy…”  Tobi’s eyes tracked around them and her voice lowered, “shiatzus, their surprise sniper was even older than Lilly.”  Gracie’s eyes widened and her mouth formed an oh making Joelle wonder who Lilly was and about the story they both seemed to know. 
Unable to hold back her curiosity, Joelle inquired, “Who is Lilly?”  
“My audacious mother-in-law, she’s my super hero.”
“She’s everybody’s super hero.”  Gracie’s agreement made Joelle even more curious.  “Lilly saved Tobi by taking out a boat and the bad guys in it with a single rifle shot.  The men swear it was luck, but I’m not buying it.”
