Win an eARC of Trouble in Paradise! #Erotic #Romance #GIVEAWAY! @RoanePublishing

Roane Publishing is giving away THREE 
eARCs of Trouble in Paradise!


Trouble in Paradise
A Paradise Ranch Novel
Author: London Saint James
Publisher: Roane Publishing
Genre: Contemporary Western Erotic Romance
Keywords: Erotic, Western, Romance, Spanking, Multiple Partners,Suspense, Contemporary

Description: If you know what’s good for you, you’ll go back to Dallas.

Since coming home Sutton has inherited herself a heap of headaches, two bossy men who want her for their own, threatening notes, and a whole lot of trouble in Paradise.



Having Doc McNab as competition, not to mention being ten years Sutton’s senior, and under her employ, meant the deck was stacked against Flint Palmer when it came to winning the, sexy, vivacious Sutton as his woman. No way would she be interested in an old, worn-out, ex-rodeo cowboy like him. But that wasn’t going to stop the man from trying.


With the exception of the pretty as a picture, Sutton Callaway, Kale McNab’s childhood sucked. He’d been jerked around more than raised by his ex-convict of a father, eventually leaving the girl, and West Texas behind. Now, he’s all grown and back in Sutton’s life, and he's willing to do whatever it takes to stay there.

What Christmas Gift Would Fulfill Your childhood Wishes? #GuestPost by @LilyCarlyle #WritersLife



Today, we have Roane author, Susan Illis on her journey to publication & Santa Bebe!


~~~oOo~~~

Nearly every blog post or biography I’ve read by an author includes a reference to an early desire to be a writer, usually discovered in elementary school. I’ll add myself to this chorus. But unlike many writers who stayed a direct path, I’ve taken the long, winding road with many detours.

I breezed through my undergraduate liberal arts education, largely because I could write well, and possessed a natural abhorrence for grammatical and spelling errors that convinced most of my professors I was smarter than I really am. Along with my love of writing, I am also fascinated with history. For some reason, I decided studying history would offer more career opportunities than writing. Ahem. Obviously I was not as smart as some people thought (most of all me).

After spending a few fun but frustrating years as a part-time grad student/part-time server, I completed my master’s degree in history and discovered precisely how employable I was. Not very.

I did eventually stumble into a job as an archivist and happily enough, found I not only liked it but was actually good at it. And it paid! Not particularly well, but a steady paycheck is a good thing.

Years later, working only part-time and staying home with my young daughters the rest of the time, I decided to give writing another try. I have two NaNoWriMo novellas, lots of false starts, and a few completed stories to show for my efforts. After many submissions and a depressing number of rejections, I submitted to the Trues market, back when they were publishing several magazines. I enjoyed some success in writing for True Romance—anonymously, of course.

I’d always loved the song Santa Baby, preferring the version sung by Eartha Kitt (I always choose vintage over modern) and it inspired my Christmas story—a young woman, raised in modest circumstances, who after watching her mother’s revolving door of boyfriends and being harassed at her job at a lingerie retailer, concludes all men are assholes and decides if she’s going to get involved with someone, she should look for someone with money. A jerk with money is better than a destitute jerk, right?

I love the main character, Bebe, although she is as dissimilar from me as possible. Blonde (though not naturally), beautiful, with a va-va-voom figure, Bebe isn’t surprised she attracts unwanted attention in the hormone-charged environment of the lingerie shop. She attends school when time and finances permit, but fears she’ll never finish her bachelor’s degree.

Her nerdy neighbor James, however, is a composite of all the geeky, awkward, earnest guys I barely gave a chance to when I was single. The complete opposite of her mom’s boyfriends and the men she meets at work, he genuinely cares for Bebe and secretly does what he can to help her complete her education.

The things Bebe really craves are security, which she equates with money, and tradition. When she realizes that once again, she will not have the picture perfect Christmas she’s always dreamed of, Bebe despairs, but James offers a solution—and so much more.

For me, having “Santa Bebe” included in Roane Publishing’s Winter’s Sweet Kiss was the fulfillment of my childhood wishes, but what do you want for Christmas? A sable? A bauble from Tiffany? Or is it something intangible? Visit my Facebook or Twitter page and tell me your Christmas wish! (or comment below?)



Lily Carlyle decided she wanted to be a writer when she was seven years old, but convinced of the impossibility of earning a living that way, she studied history instead (a decision she still can’t explain). In between working as an archivist and book reviewer and trying to keep her two daughters fed, Lily tries to find time and inspiration to realize her original dream.

Excerpt

Doing what I do, I tend not to carry too much money around with me. When you deal with the types of people I have to deal with, it’s best not to make yourself too attractive to them—in other words, no phone, no wallet, no jewellery, and if you really want to come across as unappealing—I do, it’s how I’ve survived this long—no soul. Sure, a pocketful of change isn’t going to put you on anyone’s hit list, but I’d just spent my last tenner on ginger beer and two cheeseburgers, and this guy, this jobsworth pushing his way through the compacted commuters, was about to make a scene, something I could ill afford. Even though I couldn’t see my mark, he was still here somewhere. Any sudden kerfuffle could draw his attention, and then what? The last thing I wanted was the lunatic going off on a tram piled to the brim with innocents.

The shit was about to hit the proverbial fan, one way or the other.

“Tickets, please,” the conductor said when he finally reached me a minute or two later. He had the kind of face only a mother could love, and I wouldn’t be surprised if even she’d ostracised him. The stifling heat in the carriage had given him an odd hue. He looked like something that only sprouted in the summertime. To be honest, if circumstances had been different, I would have found it difficult not to start laughing.

“Oh, erm, yeah…” I made a big deal of searching my pockets. I had to at least give the illusion I wasn’t trying to hitch a free ride.

As I rummaged, the man regarded me warily, as if he already knew where this was going. When I came out with a handful of fluff and a few pennies, his sigh was probably audible from the front of the carriage. Hell, I’d put money—if I had any—that the driver in the cockpit heard the ticket-master’s disappointed exhalation.

“Sir, I’m going to have to ask you to step off the tram at the next station.” He pressed a few buttons on his little keypad, buttons that meant trouble for me. The next station was what? Ferndale? And you could bet your boots there’d be a team of burly guards waiting for me, ready to drag me off to whatever punishment they considered apposite for fare-dodgers in this day and age.

Those people within earshot all hissed in unison, as if they knew something I didn’t. Was it possible that this three pound journey was going to cost me more than just a slap on the wrists? Was I about to get waterboarded to within an inch of my life?

Shit, I should have never bought the cheeseburgers.
