Coming Black Friday!!

Only Her Heart

Synopsis:

Holding the pieces of her drama riddled life, Jade decides to leave her disappointments in the past and move on. When her aunt opens up about a family secret, she realizes that everyone else seems to do what they please. Well, now so will she. Building life from the ground up isn’t easy, but with the right friends, she creates the life of her once forgotten dreams.

At the crux of an intense love tug-o-war, the one question she must answer is which man will play the lead role? Will Julian, the ‘bad boy’ who mysteriously walks back into her life manage to win her heart? Will she find forgiveness and a happy ending with John, Mr. “almost perfect’? Maybe there is someone new on the horizon that she can start fresh with. Life is never simple for Jade, but when she listens to her heart, she begins to open doors to a whole new world.

With new friends, and new exciting adventures, Jade is growing into a woman that she is proud of. The real question she needs to figure out is? What does she want her life to become?

Excerpt

“Hey,” John murmured, cradling my face between his large hands.

“Hi,” I replied. There was a slight tremor to my voice caused by the nostalgia that being near him evoked. John. He had been the only thing that kept me sane when it felt like everything around me was falling apart. Now there was so much upheaval around me, I didn’t know where that left us. The conflicted look in his eyes as he looked into mine, further intensifying things. His eyes kept wandering to the almost faded bruise near my mouth from being manhandled. God, I don’t want his pity. Anything but pity, please!

“I don’t know what to say right now. I’m just happy to see you,” he finally spoke.

“I’m glad you’re here too.” I tried to smile through the crack in my heart. Once again John resorted to silence as he continued to hold me. Raheem Devaughn sang about his Luv Drug while my insides were churning with clashing emotions. I wanted to be consumed with the comfort I found in John’s arms, but part of me felt like I should keep some distance between us until I figured out what the hell I wanted. John’s words interrupted my emotional caucus.

“Is it ok if I kiss you?” He leaned in closer before I could even answer. Not yet touching my lips, but close enough that I could smell spearmint every time he took a breath. Close enough for me to make out the hints of amber and greens that tinted his hazel eyes. Wasn’t I just thinking about distance or something? Chile’ Please! I nodded my response and then closed the distance between us. John buried both hands into my carefully styled curls, insuring that I couldn’t escape his embrace. Like I even wanted to.

Our lips slowly did a lip caressing dance before he tentatively brought his tongue into the mix. I parted my lips, allowing him in and breathed a contented sigh when he deepened the kiss. Wrapping my arms around his neck, I held him closer, taking in all of his warmth. He kissed me slowly but thoroughly enough to send errant shivers down my spine. Before things progressed to an out of control level, he pulled away. Much like the kisses when I was in high school that were harmless, but still left me breathless.

Olivia Linden Bio:

Olivia Linden, a native New Yorker, was raised between Queens and San Antonio, TX. Currently living in Florida with her 10 year-old son, she decided it was time to follow her dreams of becoming a full time author. Her creative itch began when her elementary school principal posted one of her stories in the halls of her school. She was only seven at the time, but old enough to understand how integral writing would be to her future. From that moment on, reading and writing became her two greatest passions.

Olivia is a newbie to the industry, but she hasn’t stopped writing since she found her literary voice all those years ago. Jaded Hearts, her first published novel, mixes her big personality, with a sexy yet humorous tone. It is her philosophy that laughter is essential to making it through even the toughest situations.

IR/MC Juneteenth Sale!

Junteenth Sale_graphic_final2It’s June and you know what that means? It’s hotter than hades outside. It  also means Juneteenth is right around a corner. And THAT means it’s almost time for the Juneteenth sale I’m participating in.

Why Juneteenth?

The simple fact is there was a time in America’s history where folks would get fined, punished or thrown in jail for teaching people of color to read. More specifically, teaching slaves to read. The general fear was if you taught slaves how to write they might, you know, think about their lot in life. They may not be happy about it. They just might educate themselves. And then the nightmare would begin: they might educate others.

What I do every day as a passion-for a living-was illegal in the United States. Took some time for the word to get out that slavery had been abolished and that was just one step closer to where I’m sitting now. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s cause for a celebration. It’s worthy of taking a moment.

A Brisk, Sexy Tale of Rekindling Love Lost!

Reinstated Bond

First, I just have to say that books of this size are my friend! Oftentimes, I don’t have time to read a full-on novel, because I’m busy. Enter a short novella like this and it allows me to get my read on without compromising on all the other things I’m juggling in my life. So, if you want a quick read, this is your story.

The book opens with the hunky ginger, Carter Aiken, trying to apprehend his high school sweetheart, Marilyn Skinner. As a Bounty Hunter, Carter is no stranger to bringing fleeing felons back to have their day in court. Marilyn believes the cards are stacked against her, because her most recent ex, who just happens to be the Mayor’s son, has accused her of arson. Rather than face a kangaroo court, Marilyn goes on the lam.

They share a painful history due to Carter’s inability to date her openly when they were in high school because of his parents’ conservative bent. Ten years later, he’s still drawn to this woman he had to give up once. Now he wants to rekindle the love they shared long ago, but first he has to haul her off to jail.

I love how Ms. Trent handled the backstory between these two, she was skillfully able to give us just enough so we knew where these two were coming from, but not too much to bog this brisk story down. Also enjoyed the chemistry they shared and how Marilyn used it to her advantage.

The brevity of the story might lead some to believe there wasn’t a complete story arc there, but there was, and I didn’t mind using my imagination to conjure up things that I needed to, because in the grand scheme of things Carter wanted Marilyn back, to reinstate the bond they had before. The bail-skipping gave him just the perfect way to make her his captive audience. 🙂

You will enjoy the steam between these two so much, it’ll be over before you know it, but you’ll enjoy every second getting there.
