VBT – Joe

Joe (The Joe Knowe Series, Book One)
by H.D. Gordon

A psychopath planning a massacre. A stuttering young girl with disturbing visions of the future. Six ordinary people who will all be in the line of fire come the day of the disaster.
Joe Knowe is not a boy. She is twenty-one years old, and she sees things before they happen; bad things, and the worst thing she has ever faced is just around the corner. A madman is going to shoot up the college Joe attends. The trouble is, her gift is stingy on the details she needs to divert the impending tragedy. Now, Joe has four days to figure out the mystery and save the lives of many.
From the author of The Alexa Montgomery Saga comes a tense tale that glimpses the mind of a genuine psychopath, follows an unlikely hero, and explores real-life terror in a race against time that will leave the reader breathless.
“They were all so young, so full of life. Why shouldn’t their outlook be light?
Because I knew that it wasn’t.
One of the greatest mercies of life: not knowing what’s going to happen next.”

Detective Jordan Delany has a gift. Through her dreams, she connects with dead victims of violent crimes. Her isolated life as a drug cop is perfect for hiding the freakish visions, until her newest investigation has her posing as a cocktail waitress in a down-and-dirty strip club. When she’s saved from a drunken customer by a handsome stranger, the heated chemistry is exactly why she intends to keep Mr. Arrogant at bay. But learning he’s the new bouncer for the corrupt club she intends to bust just might be the one reason why she can’t.

Tyler McGee suspects a drug ring operating out of the local club is flooding the streets of his hometown with heroin. Determined to get answers, he plays the part of a fallen cop and lands the job of head bouncer. What he discovers is that the club owner isn’t the only deadly obstacle he’s facing. His attraction to an intriguing cocktail waitress with a penchant for danger just might kill him first.

Enjoy an excerpt:

“I told you I could be downright romantic if you give me a chance, city girl. I realize this isn’t a hot night out on the town or anything, but my options were limited considering you’re undercover, and we can’t be seen together.”

“Ha.” She laughed and pulled her head from his shoulder long enough to smile up at him. “Cowboy, your options were limited, because we’re in a town the size of a peanut, and the most interesting thing here is a strip club.”

He chuckled. “Perhaps, but what any self-respecting small-town boy knows,” he whispered, moving them both to the music, “is that it’s not where you take your dates that’ll rock their world. It’s what you do to them once you get ’em there that’s important.”

She stopped moving and stroked his cheek. “Thank you. Everything is beautiful.”

He stood silent and still for several moments. Too many emotions passed across his face for Jordan to figure out what he was thinking. His soulful stare never wavered from her, but he didn’t kiss her, didn’t pull her closer.

“You are, by far, the most beautiful thing in this room. I’ve pictured you here, like this. Candlelight. Flowers. Music.”

“Well then, I guess this just went from being my fantasy to yours. Because however you pictured me, I’m happy to oblige.” She lifted her sweater up and over her head, then tossed it aside, exposing a black camisole and bra. He wasn’t the only one who’d done a little shopping. After popping open all the buttons on his shirt, she wrapped her arms around him and nuzzled into his neck.

“Damn, woman. Way to play hard to get.”

Michelle Sharp is a romantic suspense author from the Midwest. Although she has a degree in journalism from Southern Illinois University, she finds weaving tales of danger, deception, and love much preferable to reporting the cold, hard facts. Her goal in life? To team resilient, kick-ass heroines with the sexy alpha’s who love them. As most writers probably are, she is an avid reader. Her husband and kids would call it obsessive—but whatever. Her first choice is usually a story with a thrilling combination of danger and love, but any book with a great voice and intriguing story will keep her turning pages well past any reasonable bed-time. Her debut novel will be published with Entangled Ignite in summer of 2014. She is a member of Romance Writers of America and Missouri Romance Writers.

#BetaReader (s) Needed for #MC #Mafia #Erotic #Romance

Not for the weak at heart, I’m breaking a lot of rules in this series.

Beta readers will need to be able to start in August and will be doing several chapters at a time for the first run through. There will be an option to do a final full book run through – there will also be several additional beta spots open at that time (for just the full run through).

Interested? Email me Abbye.Kovacevic@gmail.com

Short details: 

Tagline: They told her she’d never get out alive; she told them she didn’t care.
Summary: Gracie grew up as the daughter of the president of one of the most feared motorcycle clubs in history. When her father was killed, she was devastated to learn the club had voted in her older brother as the new president. She didn’t even get VP.
Determined to show a woman could make it in the biker world, as more than someone’s old lady, Gracie lied, cheated, and stole her way up the chain to form her own motorcycle club.

Take everything you’ve ever thought you knew about MC’s and throw it out the window. It’s 2014 and the rules have changed. And so has Gracie.

A #Writers Vision – #DemolitionMafia #BookSeries

As I’ve worked my way through book one in this series, I thought I had the initial idea set for the series. As I write – Gracie progresses as a character. Sometimes moving me in directions I didn’t see for her.

With that, I find that I’m remapping out the rest of the book in the series. Yes, while I should be finishing up book one.

What I want is real issues. As Gracie gets older and pushes her standing, she changes. Some ways for the better – others for the worst. Many times she realizes this as well. After all, we do have to look ourselves in the mirror at least once a day. Do any of us really always like the reflection looking back at us?

As the series moves forward, Gracie will struggle with the choices she’s forced to make along with the consequences brought about by those choices. She’ll also struggle with losing some of her closest friends as well as family. She’ll also meet and have to face her own demons about how she feels about herself as she ages.

Yes, this series is mafia and motorcycle club related – but the characters will face their own every day struggles within themselves as well.
