The SubClub Books Tour: Excerpt from Before You Break by Christina Lee + #Giveaway


Meet Christina:
Once upon a time, I lived in New York City and was a fashion stylist. I spent my days shopping for photo shoots, getting into cabs, eating amazing food, and drinking coffee at my favorite hangouts.

Now I live in my hometown of Cleveland, with my husband and son—my two favorite guys. I’ve always been an avid reader—reading was actually my favorite time of day when I taught second and third grade.

InkSlinger PR Cover Reveal: Caught Up In Us and Pretending He's Mine by Lauren Blakely

We are so excited to bring to you Lauren Blakely's new covers for CAUGHT UP IN US and PRETENDING HE'S MINE today! Lauren gave us a special message to share with you about why the covers are changing.

Message from Lauren:
Caught Up in Us and Pretending He's Mine are my first two books, and while I have great affection for the original covers and the way readers responded to those two romances, I wanted the covers to better match the look of the rest of my books. I began working with the Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations starting with Trophy Husband and she went on to also design Playing With Her Heart's cover as well as my No Regrets series. I love the work she did on those books, and while she was busy creating the cover for my next novel, Night After Night (releasing in May!), I asked Helen Williams at All Booked Out to do a cover makeover for Caught Up in Us and Pretending He's Mine so that those could match Playing With Her Heart's look. Helen does amazing work and has done many graphics for me and other book covers, so I knew she would be able to do a brilliant redo -- she also redid the covers in only one weekend!! It was a fast turnaround and I am thrilled with the new
looks, and especially how well all the books play together now. And to celebrate the redesign as well as the one-year anniversary of Pretending He's Mine this month, I will be offering Pretending He's Mine for free on iBooks starting today and through the weekend! (It's possible Amazon might price match the free offering, but I can't guarantee what Amazon will do so if you want to read it for free, snag it on iBooks!)

Cathryn Farley Photography

She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period.  Her hobbies include witty Facebook comments (in own her mind) and dancing in her kitchen with her children. (Quite badly if you believe her offspring.)  Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks.  She has six children and hasn’t lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.

LitConnect Tours: A RECKLESS Valentine's Day with Skye Jordan + #Giveaway

It's a blog takeover by NY Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Skye Jordan. Skye is stopping by today to celebrate the brand spankin' new audio release of the RECKLESS (Renegades, #1), and gifting up to 20 free audio downloads of this first book of the series to readers.

Stay home and get seduced this Valentine's day by one sexier-than-sin, bad-boy biker, alpha stuntman (who owns his own stunt company) that won't take no for answer. When Jax makes up his mind that's he's found the women for him, a little RECKLESS behavior is sure to commence.

Listen to the first couple of chapters of RECKLESS and let the seduction commence! :)


Meet Skye:
Sometimes fun, sometimes naughty. Always romantic.

I am a USA Today Bestselling Author writing under the pseudonym Skye Jordan for my more … sexually heated … works.

My Skye Jordan novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don’t get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance.

And, yes, even love. Because even as Skye Jordan I’m just a happily ever after kinda gal. (Or, in some cases, happily for the foreseeable future.)

Meet Rebecca:
Rebecca Yarros is a hopeless romantic and lover of all things chocolate, coffee, and Paleo. In addition to being a mom, military wife, and blogger, she can never choose between Young Adult and New Adult fiction, so she writes both. She's a graduate of Troy University, where she studied European history and English, but still holds out hope for an acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Her blog, The Only Girl Among Boys, has been voted the Top Military Mom Blog the last two years, and celebrates the complex issues surrounding the military life she adores.

When she's not writing, she's tying on hockey skates for her kids, or sneaking in some guitar time. She is madly in love with her army-aviator husband of eleven years, and they're currently stationed in Upstate NY with their gaggle of rambunctious kiddos and snoring English Bulldog, but she would always rather be home in Colorado.

She knows he’s not normal, but she never expected him to be the one man who could capture her heart.

Meet Melissa:
From an early age, Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.

Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to fifty romances published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the bestselling Harmless series. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, three nominations for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the best seller lists on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Since she spent her childhood as a military brat, Melissa swore never to marry military. But, as we all know, Fate has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major and is raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to her addiction to Twitter, counting down the days until her hubby retires, and cursing the military for always sticking them in a location that is filled with bugs big enough to eat her children.
