Guest Post & Giveaway with Adrienne De Wolfe...





Hot Blooded Gunslinger Meets His Match
in this Feisty Lady Pinkerton
By Adrienne deWolfe, National Bestselling Author

When I set out to write my Lady Pinkerton character, Sadie Michelson, I wanted her to be a kick-butt heroine, who would make readers cheer. I cut my teeth on action-adventure movies as a kid, and I wanted to write a female, who could be a “John Wayne” type of character, without sacrificing her sensuality or femininity. 
Needless to say, Sadie is not the kind of woman who would be happy, sipping tea in a Victorian drawing room. No, Sadie is more about competing with men in a man’s world – and beating them at their own game. Her playing field is the American Wild West, where she must use all her wits and wiles to survive as a crack shot and a master of disguise.
In my Lady Law & The Gunslinger series, Sadie has all kinds of interesting adventures (including jumping out of a burning brothel.) But my favorite scenes show her butting heads with her outlaw lover, William “Cass” Cassidy (better known as “Eros in Spurs.)
Below, you’ll find the quintessential Sadie snippet, where she turns the tables on “Eros in Spurs.” Enjoy the following sneak peek from Book 2, Dance to the Devil’s Tune.

Sneak Peek
Dance to the Devil’s Tune
Book 2
Lady Law & The Gunslinger Series
By Adrienne deWolfe

(Scene Set Up: The book is set in Denver, 1883. Cass has just sneaked inside Sadie’s darkened hotel room.)
“Looking for someone, mister?” her voice was harsh.
Cass’s lips twitched. “They call her the Devil’s Daughter.”
A moment passed. Then a light bloomed at her elbow. She was lounging in an armchair, her chestnut mane spilling to her waist, lacy rosettes cascading from her breasts. The skimpy threads left little to his imagination. But what captivated Cass in that moment -– what had always captivated Cass about Sadie -– was the sensual fire burning in those hungry, tiger eyes.
“I got word you wanted me,” he said.
“Lies.”
He hiked an eyebrow.

“But since you made the trip,” she said huskily, her trigger finger never wavering on her .32, “take off your clothes…”

Dream
On


by
Stacey Keith




Genre:
Contemporary Romance









Deep
in the heart of Texas is a small town where secret wishes have a
funny way of coming true . . .





With
a nine-year-old daughter, an overdue light bill, and a job slinging
burgers while zooming around on roller skates, Cassidy Roby is not
living the glamorous life. But Cuervo, Texas, has its charms: quiet
streets, loving family, and the down-home familiarity of knowing
which of your neighbors are mean as snakes. With Cassidy’s
reputation, she knows what will happen if she steps a foot out of
line. But how can she help it now that Mason Hannigan’s back in
town?




As
Cuervo’s high school quarterback ten years ago, Mason was all
rock-hard abs and yes-ma’am manners. Now that he’s living the
glitz and glory of the NFL, he’s all that plus a couple million
bucks. The desire blazing between them is too hot to hide. Cassidy
has some experience getting her heart broken by the hometown hero—and
having the whole world watch her try to pick up the pieces. Will
adding fame, fortune, and paparazzi be a playbook for disaster—or
lead to the biggest adventure of her life?

Welcome contemporary romance author, Lynsey James *GIVEAWAY*



Hi, Lynsey! It's so great to have you here and to be a part of your tour - I'm looking forward to learning more about you and your work. Let's kick off with my questions...

1)     What is the best and worse thing you have learned from an editor/agent?

The best thing I’ve learnt from my agent Sarah is to believe in myself. That’s something I’ve always struggled with, but she’s helped me have that confidence in myself and my writing. Can’t really think of the worst thing, to be honest!

2)     What is your typical day?

Well, I’ve just started a new job working at a huge department store, so that’s taking up a lot of my time! On my days off though, I try to write as much as possible. I have about three projects I’m working on at the moment, so I try to divide my time between them.

3)     What do you read while in the midst of a project? Or don’t you?

I tend to save books for when I’m finished a project so I can really enjoy them. If I read while I’m working on a project, I usually end up thinking the book I’m reading is way better than what I’m working on!

4)      What do you do with a paperback once you’ve read it?
I keep it! I’m such a hoarder and I can’t bear throwing books away. I don’t have any room on my humungous bookcase for any more, but that won’t stop me picking up just one more…
5)      Are you nervous about friends reading your book?
OH GOD YES. There’s always that worry that they won’t like what I’ve written and will tell me they do just to be polite. Or that they might like one book I’ve done, but not the rest.
6)      What things inspire you to write? Location, music, film or even in a book?
My inspiration really comes from anywhere. It can be something I see on TV, read about in the news, or even a throwaway remark somebody makes. It takes the tiniest thing sometimes to spark off an idea and before I know it, I have a full story.
7)      What’s next for you?

I’m going to start working on a top-secret project very soon. Watch this space for more information…



Blurb: Being pregnant with her ex-boyfriend’s baby is the last thing on Cleo Jones’s Christmas wish list. Scott might have been the man of her dreams once upon a time, but things change and now Cleo faces a future as a single mum… Or does she?

Scott won’t let Cleo go through this alone; whatever their differences he’s vowed to be there, from antenatal classes to night feeds and nappy changing. The two agree to bring up their baby as friends – but as Cleo’s bump grows, so do their feelings for each other.

Cleo can’t be sure if it’s her heart of her hormones urging her to give Scott a second chance – but getting back together could be the best Christmas present of all!


Author bio: Lynsey James was born in Fife in 1991 and has been telling people how to spell her name ever since. She's an incurable bookworm who loves nothing more than getting lost in a good story with memorable characters. She started writing when she was really young and credits her lovely Grandad- and possibly a bump on the head from a Mr Frosty machine- with her love of telling stories. She used to write her own episodes of Friends and act them out in front of her family (in fact she's sure she put Ross and Rachel together first!)

A careers adviser at school once told Lynsey writing wasn’t a “good option” and for a few years, she believed her. She tried a little bit of everything, including make-up artistry, teaching and doing admin for a chocolate fountain company. The free chocolate was brilliant. When Lynsey left my job a couple of years ago, she started writing full-time while she looked for another one. As soon as she started working on her story, Lynsey fell in love and decided to finally pursue her dream. She haven’t looked back since.

When Lynsey's not writing, eating cake or drinking tea, she's daydreaming about the day Dylan O’Brien FINALLY realises they're meant to be together. It’ll happen one day…

Secondary Character – Introducing Marian Cohen – the matriarch of Templeton Cove



When I started writing Finding Justice, the first book in my ongoing romance series with Harlequin Superromance, Marian quickly pushed herself forward as Templeton Coves boss. Shes in her sixties, funny, wise, a little bit naughty and very, very astute.

And an absolute joy to write!

So much so, I am pretty sure she has appeared in seven of the eight books in the series.

She is the glue that holds Templetons community together the oracle to whom the residents, young and old, come for adviceeven if the advice they receive isnt always welcomed at first.
Marian came to the Cove under a cloud of speculation about five years before the first book opens. A stranger to the Templeton, she arrived with long-standing resident George and they soon married. No one knows much about her background and no one dare ask! Shes loving, attentive and a bulldog to anyone who upsets her broodin other words, anyone she cares for in the Cove.

Its a dream come true that Im writing a series that so many readers enjoy and are still asking for more stories. The Templeton Cove Stories are a mix of mainstream romance and romantic suspense stories that link existing characters and also new characters I introduce, as and when.

Book 8 of the series, A STRANGER IN THE COVE (coming Jan 2018)  is really Marians story it was the right time to fill in the blanks for the devoted fans of the series. I am so excited for this books release!

In the meantime, why not catch up with Marian and all her fabulous antics in the first seven books in the series. Youll love her as much as me promise!

A Stranger In the Cove is available for pre-order here is the blurb & buy links:

Mac Orman is on a mission. When he discovers his recently deceased father had been searching for his birth mother, Mac aims to finish the job by finding the grandmother he never knew. His quest leads him to Templeton Cove—and a firecracker of a woman who instantly jump-starts his tortured heart.  
For Mac, Kate Harrington is the most tempting kind of distraction. But their sizzling connection comes with a side of suspicion for Kate, who doesn’t trust this brooding stranger in her town. Mac arrived with no plans to stay, but as he falls for Kate, he wonders how he could ever possibly leave.
