BLURB

Welcome to Dayton Valley, cowboy country with a sum population of 9022.
Sounds idyllic, and it is… until it isn’t.

Ellie
First there’s my parents and their penchant for making out in public, totally gross.
Then there’s my douche of a brother, who shouldn’t be allowed near any woman with a pulse.
Bronte my best friend is lusting over a silver fox … And then of course there’s Hunter Delaney.
Hunter. Hunter. Hunter.
He’s not officially mine, but that’s not to say I want him to belong to anyone else either.
As we work together on a way to stop Bronte’s demented plan to date Hunter’s dad, we get closer, and closer… until the lines of friendship are well and truly blurred.
Friends can be lovers, right?

Hunter
I’m a cowboy, I love my job, I adore my two crazy aunts and I idolize my pop, even if he’s getting more action than I am. Life is great, except I have a problem and it’s called Ellie Maples. She’s my best friend’s little sister, but you know that line you’re not supposed to cross…? Yeah, that one.
Well, I’m getting pretty close to jumping it.
You can have feelings for the girl you’re not supposed to touch, right?

Welcome to Dayton Valley… where the men are hard, and the women are horny.

 

MEET NIKKI ASHTON

Nikki lives in Cheshire with her husband, two dogs and lovely mother-in-law who supplies her with endless cups of tea. She writes romance with a touch of humour and lots of love, and hopes that she puts a smile on her reader’s faces. Her ambitions of becoming a writer started at the age of 10 when she started writing poetry at school, and was given the honour of reading one of her poems to the rest of her year group (a truly embarrassing experience that she will never forget). Nikki is grateful for the wide variety of strange and wonderful people in her life, otherwise she’d never know what to write about! She is currently talking to family and friends, finding out their innermost secrets in readiness for her next book.

Although all Nikki’s books are stand alone stories characters do make ‘guest appearances’. So, the best order to read them is:

Guess Who I Pulled Last Night

Get Your Kit Off

Rock Stars Don’t Like Big Knickers

Rock Stars Don’t Like Ugly Bras

A torturously tempting love story.
Jessica ‘Jessie’ Allen is sugary sweet and perpetually perky. Running on an endless supply of enthusiasm, she’s in constant motion. The people pleaser is running herself ragged to make other people happy—anything to avoid having to figure out what would make her happy.
Devin Bennett is her complete opposite, the immovable object to Jessie’s unstoppable force. The tall, tattooed and brooding mechanic hates change and the perky blonde co-ed shoving it down his throat. Jessie is drawn to him like a valley girl to an outlet mall, but Devin dodges her advances better than a UFC fighter. The longer she’s around, the harder it is to keep his hands off her perfect body and his lips away from her sassy mouth.
For the first time in her life, Jessie knows what she wants. Devin Bennett. And she’s not above torturing him with temptation to make it happen.

A painfully awkward love story.
Incomprehensibly awkward Elizabeth Wilde is desperate for love. Connection. Intimacy. After a lifetime of romantic failures, the twenty-one-year-old gamer realizes she needs help. Professional help. She needs…
A sex tutor.
The devastatingly hot jock Austin Jacobs is just the man for the job. As the reigning campus sex god, he has the playboy act down pat. But underneath those six-pack abs beats a broken heart. He doesn’t trust people and he sure as hell doesn’t believe in love.
The odd couple strike a deal. Four weeks of ‘tutoring’ for five thousand dollars.
When Austin coaxes Elizabeth out from behind her computer screen, the attraction they feel is undeniable. They’re both a little broken, but somehow their jagged edges fit. And when their world comes tumbling down on top of them, they each have to decide if this weird thing called love is worth fighting for.
About the Author

Amelia Kingston is many things, the most interesting of which are probably California girl, writer, traveler, and dog mom. She survives on chocolate, coffee, wine, and sarcasm. Not necessarily in that order.

She’s been blessed with a patient husband who’s embraced her nomad ways and traveled with her to over 30 countries across 5 continents (I’m coming for you next, Antarctica!). She’s also been cursed with an impatient (although admittedly adorable) terrier who pouts when her dinner is 5 minutes late.
She writes about strong, stubborn, flawed women and the men who can’t help but love them. Her irreverent books aim to be silly and fun with the occasional storm cloud to remind us to appreciate the sunny days. As a hopeless romantic, her favorite stories are the ones that remind us all that while love is rarely perfect, it’s always worth chasing.

#BookReview “A Wish For Jinnie” by Audrey Davis

cover

~~~

4/5 Stars!

Hard to believe that a story that includes a humiliated thirty-something woman dumped by her arrogant fiancé, a pub owner and his grown son watching Alzheimer’s steal their wife and mother away, a lonely middle-age café owner tempted to cross the line with a married man, a tormented young single mom battling alcoholism and desperate for a break, and… a genie could be a romantic comedy.

But it is… and a good one!

Jinnie Cooper is trying to piece together an existence in the small village of Cranley after her fiancé, Mark, the JERK, calls off their engagement. Embraced by the village’s quirky residents, she soon takes two part-time positions, one at Out of the Attic Antiques—which is one step above a junk store—for Sam Addin and the other for Ken McCroaty at the Jekyll and Hyde Pub.

Determined to avoid getting involved with any man ever again, Jinnie cannot deny her growing attraction to forty-something Sam, but then, there’s also Ken’s handsome son, Ed, who’s closer to her age. She gives herself a reality check, though because Sam is a successful author, has a witchy ex-wife, and a son in college, and Ed has a girlfriend. Besides, there’s no way neither man could be interested in someone like her.

When Jinnie picks out a few items from Sam’s store to fix up her meager flat, her life will never be the same because one of the items is an old, battered lamp.

A Wish for Jinnie is a fun read with much of the laughs provided by Dhassim, a genie of indeterminate age who redefines wish-fulfillment. His manic personality and endless barrage of questions overwhelm Jinnie until she learns even genies aren’t immune to broken hearts.

Story characters are well-developed and easy to relate to but the standout for me was Wilma, Jinnie’s eighty-six-year-old grandmother who lived alone, read tea leaves, and rolled her own cigarettes! Jinnie adores the cantankerous old woman who says and does as she pleases. Wilma is a social media maven and even has thousands of followers on Twitter… and all the headaches that come with it – HA!

But it wouldn’t hurt Jinnie to be more like Wilma. For me, she was a wet rag from the beginning. To be fair, she was unceremoniously dumped by the JERK, who did a number on her self-esteem. But from her recollections, Jinnie had issues before getting involved with the JERK. She was stunned he was attracted to someone like her and shocked he asked her to move in with him and proposed. She never felt worthy of the JERK, and his treatment of her did nothing to build her up. However, her image of herself was contradicted by the residents of Cranley, who called her pretty and even beautiful.

It’s Dhassim who helps Jinnie come into her own though, as she comes to understand him… and herself. She takes another direction with her wish-fulfillment that is life-changing, and not just for her.

I would like to have known more about Dhassim’s past, but not knowing doesn’t take away from the story. However, the sweet ending makes me wonder if I’ll see Jinnie… and Dhassim again.

I recommend this read that’s full of snarky wit and love. But don’t go all in thinking of Robin’s Williams’ genie… Dhassim doesn’t like him.

Enjoy!

SYNOPSIS

What if wishes really could come true?

When Jinnie Cooper is dumped by her fiancé and exiled to a job in an antique shop in a sleepy Scottish village, little does she know a battered old lamp is about to shake up her life.

Genie Dhassim grants wishes. But he also wants a few of his own to come true. Letting him explore the outside world proves nerve-wracking as Dhassim has an uncanny knack of putting his pointy-slippered foot in it.

As Jinnie grows closer to her employer Sam, Dhassim discovers his time on earth is running out.

Can both Jinnie and Dhassim find true happiness? Or are those wishes that cannot be granted?

#Spotlight “Where Dreams Merge (Jasmine Cottage Book 2)” by Maureen Driscoll

Cover

~~~

The second book in the Jasmine Cottage Victorian Romance series follows Grace Moore as she matches wits with writer Carter Beckett, the Earl of Wainwright.

Grace Moore has avidly followed the career of Carter Beckett, who pens pieces for a London newspaper. Never shy to contradict him, she has sent him several letters about his work. What she didn’t expect was for the man himself to visit the country not far from where she lives, even more handsome in real life than his pen and ink picture in the paper.

Carter Beckett is restless. He is attempting to write a novel, but the words simply will not come. However, once he meets the lady who has been his most outspoken critic, he realizes he has finally found his muse. Once the two begin writing letters to each other through alter egos, love of the written word turns into the love of a lifetime.

WHERE DREAMS MERGE is the story of two people reaching beyond their day-to-day lives to find love. This book contains explicit language and graphic sexual scenes. If you don’t like sex with your books, this one isn’t for you, though the author hopes all readers end up with their soul’s mate.

#FREE “Special Agent Maximilian (Undercover FBI Book 3)” by Mimi Barbour

~~~

In this electrifying romantic suspense set in the steamy streets of New Orleans, Lieutenant Commander Nik Baudin, accidentally meets up with an identical twin he never knew existed. When his brother Max goes missing, Nik assumes his identity as Special Agent Maximilian. This gives him access to FBI files making it easier to arrest the gangsters who attacked his brother and to stop their trafficking of underage girls. Being that Nik has specialized commando training, he’s the perfect man for the job – that’s if his PTSD doesn’t kick in and leave him cowering in a corner.

Special Agent Maya Barnes can’t believe it when she spots her partner, Max Foster, wandering along the French market without a care in the world. Since he’d been beaten and had gone missing weeks earlier, they all believed him dead. There’s only one problem… though this man might look exactly like the missing agent, she knows differently. In all the years they’ve worked together, she’s never wanted to have mind-blowing sex with her partner before.

There’s nothing sexy about her humdrum life as a mum. But is her husband’s crazy scheme a bit too exciting?

Sarah’s mind-numbing housewife existence is turning her brain to mush. With her third bun in the oven, this British mum is drowning under a mountain of playdates, bills, and head lice checks. But her man’s get-rich-quick idea of writing steamy novels isn’t her ideal way to dial up life’s passion.

Drew desperately wants a break from Sarah’s whinging. And if that means
researching how to write racy books all by himself, then he’ll make the sacrifice. But as he finally warms Sarah up to the sultry side hustle, their R-rated private project gets publicly exposed…

With an office scandal brewing, it’s only a matter of time before gawking workers and a perfectly nosy PTA president turn them into social pariahs.
Can Sarah and Drew earn some extra income from sizzling lit without falling prey to stiff gossip?

Erotic Fiction is a charming comedy for fans of humorous fiction. If you like sweet love stories, endearing characters, and dry British humor, then you’ll adore Kindle Storyteller Award Winner Hannah Lynn’s delightful tale.

Q & A with Elaine Spires, author of “The single Best Thing”

 

tour banner

~~~

Thank you for stopping by Nesies Place today, Elaine!Elaine Spires

Your latest release, The Single Best Thing, centers around Travel Together Tour Manager Eve Mitchell. Can this be considered book six or an epilogue to the Singles Series?

A – it’s actually both.  Although it’s a novella – it ‘ties up’ the ends and tells us what finally happened to Eve and Melv.

What inspired the Singles Series?

A – I worked as a tour manager for a singles tour operator for thirteen years.  During that time I accompanied a couple of hundred groups of single travellers to worldwide destinations.  I could see the singles’ holiday setting had the makings of a book/TV series/film from the very first trip I ever did.

Can you tell us about one of the stories?

A – well, the main story is that of Eve, the tour manager whose story is told single all the wat thover the six books. But each book tells not only her story but those of several group members.  I think Angela’s is an interesting story.  She’s in Single All The Way; an arrogant, unhappy woman who is a bit of a ‘challenge’ for Eve.  She gets drunk, insults everyone, causes fuss after fuss but then we find out what’s gone on in her life and something happens to her on the holiday – no spoilers from me – and she starts to get a grip on her life.  We meet her again in The Single Best Thing and she’s living a totally different life and is happy.

Do you have a favorite character from the series?

Asingles holiday thwell, I suppose Eve, but I am very fond of Murray Sneddon.  I wrote him as the ‘challenge’ of Singles’ Holiday but as the book went on he became more likeable.  And I liked him so much he appears in four of the books.  And Penny and Dave.  Dave first appears in Singles’ Holiday but then meets Penny in Single All The Way.  And Frances – what a girl she is!  And Geri – once singles at sea thagain a ‘challenge’ for Eve in Singles’ Holiday but the heroine of Singles at Sea.  And Michael and Natalie….  so hard to chose just one!

Sounds like you have a lot of fun with your characters! What’s your favorite genre to write or do you only write in one genre?

A – I’m always unsure what my genre is!  LOL!  Contemporary fiction, I the banjo thsuppose, although The Banjo is set in 50s and 60s.  I’d love to be able to write thrillers or murder mysteries.  Perhaps one day…

What’s your favorite genre to read?

A – Thrillers.

What are you reading now?

A – I’m reading my way through eight books by as yet unpublished writers as I’m honoured to have been asked to be a judge for the Pen to Print Book Challenge.  Very interesting!

Where are you from?

A  I’m an East End girl.  I was born in Limehouse – brought up and presently live in Dagenham – but have lived in Mallorca, Ibiza, Corfu and Antigua at various times in my life.

You wear many hats. Your bio says you’re a novelist, playwright, screenwriter and actress…WOW! Are they interconnected or do you have a preference for one over the others?

A -They are interconnected. I went to the Anna Scher Community Theatre for a number of years and Anna always encouraged us to write and put on plays so writing and acting stemmed from there and grew.

You’ve written and produced plays and a short film. Care to share any playbills with us?

A – sorry my IT skills don’t allow me to upload them – I’m on an iPad.  If I can send something separately I will.

Plays Elaine was in and/or wrote

Are you self-published, traditional, or hybrid?

A -I am a proud self-published author.

How long have you been a writer?

A – I started writing plays in 90s.  My first book, What’s Eating Me, was based on a stage play and came out in 2009.

Totally addicted to social media or could you live without it?

A – I like to think I could live without it. I do waste time on it most days unfortunately.  But, for an indie writer like me it’s important for self-promotion (which I’m not terribly good at!)

Self-promotion is not easy and can be a pain! What’s your next project?

A – I’m working on The Banjo Book Two and also a four-part TV drama series.

Do you have any advice for new authors?

A – blow your own trumpet!  Don’t be afraid to write the kind of book you want to read – be ruthlessly honest with yourself – don’t compare yourself to other (more successful/experienced) writers – and keep going!  If you don’t keep writing you’ll never finish the book!

Many thanks to Elaine for chatting with us today! What a great interview! Scroll down and check out her latest release, The Single Best Thing. If you haven’t read any of the series, today’s a good time to start!
