Excerpt 

I heard noises: beeping, whispered voices. It was the clinical smell assaulting my nose that had me realise I wasn’t at home. I tried to open my eyes, but the light, such a bright light above me, burned my retinas. My body ached, my arm felt heavy as if weighed down.
I drifted back into sleep.
“Dani, can you hear me?”
“Dani, we need you to open your eyes, honey.”
Honey?
I felt a hand on my shoulder, it gently squeezed. Why couldn’t they leave me be? Did they not understand? The minute I opened my eyes, the minute I heard their words, I’d have to remember. I didn’t want to remember.
“Baby girl, it’s time to wake up now.” Not even my dad’s voice could chase the fear of waking up away.
The hand squeezed and eventually, fingertips pried one eyelid open. I moved my head away; it was an invasion. An assault on my desired numbness. I had no choice. I opened my eyes, squinting against the harsh lights above me and turned my head.
My dad sat on a chair beside me. He leant forwards, reached out, and smoothed the hair from my forehead. I winced at the sting as his fingers brushed over the stitches.
“Hey,” he said, gently.
A nurse stood beside him, busying herself with a clipboard and notes. She looked up and smiled softly at me. I didn’t return the smile.
I looked down at the arm that felt heavy and saw the white plaster cast, stretching from hand to elbow. Using my other hand, I placed it on my stomach. I knew.

Release Day Blitz: Survivor



•`Hayley Oakes - Survivor - OUT NOW! .•

Synopsis
I live by one motto - work hard, play harder.

A pro-football player at the top of my game: the Devereux charm, and my skills on and off the field haven't let me down yet.

Whatever I want comes easy to me but when I see the cute, blonde gym instructor with the sensational body, I want her ... but something tells me it's going to take more than my name to score with Perrie Fraser.

Head down, no distractions - it's my new mantra.

As a gym instructor to high-end clientele, all I want is to get through each day without attracting unwanted attention. Even if that attention does come in the form of a drop-dead gorgeous, annoyingly charming pro-football player.

If his ego doesn't send me running, then his playboy image definitely should ... but the more I get to know him, the clearer it becomes that saying no to Thomas Devereux is going to be much harder than I thought.

Sometimes the last thing you think you need becomes the only thing you can trust. 

Read book 1 in the Richmore series (although both can be read as standalones) - myBook.to/Condemned_richmore

Spotlight: A Beautiful Kind Of Hope



Blurb

I have lived my life without distraction, building a name and an empire in this competitive world, becoming a billionaire as I stayed true to my late mother’s wishes. But all that changed the moment I laid my eyes on her…
Butterfly; that’s what they called her. The woman I couldn’t tear my eyes from as she captivated the crowd, swaying her curvy hips, her nude lingerie leaving nothing to the imagination. The one woman who made me want to break a few wrists when they tried to touch her beautiful mocha skin.
I didn’t know her, and all it took was one taste of her intoxicating scent and I knew I’d never get enough of her.

I needed her in my life to be that ray of sunshine.

To be my beautiful kind of hope.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR 

Hanleigh is a British author. She was born in Scotland but has lived near enough her whole life in the South of England. Hanleigh loves reading books more than nearly anything in the world; whether it’s reading them or writing them, Hanleigh just can’t get enough. She relishes in the way authors can create whole worlds with the words they put in their books. She wishes that being an author really was magic, just like in Once upon A Time. Hanleigh absolutely adores Romantic fiction. She first fell in love with literature as a small child reading Dr Zeus. She then fell in love with romance as a genre when she first read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. She checks every five-pound note for Austen’s face but has yet to find her £50,000 five-pound note. Shame. Hanleigh is about as English as it’s possible to be, which is highly ironic as she isn’t English at all. She sometimes wishes she could live inside the world that she can create inside her mind, but since that isn’t possible she puts pen to paper and shares that world with this world instead. 

WHY HANLEIGH WRITES 
When you read a book, your imagination introduces you to a new world. A world that may well be completely different to the one you live in. when you read a book the words of the author bring that world to life. How many times have you read a book or watched a film and found yourself dreaming about it? Your imagination making it a reality. The world the words create is captivating. It catches your attention and works hard to keep it. There is one thing more tantalizing than entering someone else’s imaginings; creating your own. There is something addictive about being able to mold your words into something that causes the reader to fall into your mind. When you put pen to paper and create a world, it’s exhilarating. Every word has meaning. You know every character intimately. You know every secret, every whisper, every smell, every look, as the author you know the world you created and more so than even the most avid of readers you can get lost in your creation. I guess you could just say, I’m a bit of a dreamer. 

WHEN DID SHE START WRITING
 I first started writing as a kid. I was addicted to reading but could never put a story down even when it was finished, so I’d just add a bit more on to the end. I was the geek that sat and wrote FanFiction. Now you know just how cool I really am. Then when I went into the wider world and grew up I stopped for a while, until one day I thought heck what if I wrote all these ideas down and somewhere amongst all those ideas I realised there was a whole world of characters just waiting to have their stories told. So here I am, Author In Progress.

Book Review: The Highway Man




Title: The Highway Man
Author: J. Alchem
Genre: Fiction, Literature, Short Stories
Pages: 32

Rating: 4/5

Another one from the Short Stories genre, The Highway Man by J. Alchem is a collection of three stories that revolve around the human emotions and behavior. 

Dr. Rusenvelt , a psychiatrist,receives a call that his favorite author needs help but when he goes to meet him, he is in for shock. The second story is about a couple madly in love with each other and since it is Women's Day, the husband wants to make his wife's day. The last story is about the Highway Man. A desolate father and son pair travel to Agra but their entire life changes when they agree to give a random guy on the highway, a lift.

The narrations and the writing style is really commendable. All the three stories highlight the human emotions, like I mentioned before. There are some shocks, some heart melting moments and some realizations happening in the book. A short read, The Highway Man is apt for a quick shot of some good literature.

Definitely recommended.

Sophie North is James North’s little sister. She has suffered through the brutal attack on her brother all because of his sexual beliefs.

Anna Edwards is a British  Author  that  has  a  love  of travelling and  developing  plot  lines  for  stories.  She  has spent that last two years learning the skills  of  writing after being an accountant since the age of 21. As  well  as Roleplaying on twitter, she can also be found  writing  poetry on Twitter

Her debut novel, Surrendered Control was released in November 2016 and has received fantastic feedback on the drama of story. Since then she has released four  other  books in 'The Control Series'. The Touch  of Snow  is the first book in a seven (at the moment) paranormal romance series. Anna only recently discovered paranormal romance but instantly fell in love with it. Brayden and Selene's story came to her in a dream.

In her writing she loves to combine her love for romantic and erotic novels with her passion for travel to give an international feel to her novels.

Death Valley is somewhere she visited in 2008 after a tragic personal event. It was part of a tour of the west coast  of America that she loved a great deal. The highlight of the trip was a helicopter  ride over  the Grand  Canyon .

Anna Edwards likes her heroes hot and hunky with a dirty mouth. Her heroines demur but spunky and her books in a kick arse series.
