COVER REVEAL: Twisted Desire by Christa Simpson

 Twisted Desire - ecover

Title:  Twisted Desire

Author:  Christa Simpson

Release Date: July 19, 2014

Series:  Book #4 in the Twisted Series (stand-alone)

Genre:  New Adult Romance/Romantic Suspense

(18+ due to graphic scenes involving sex, violence
and vulgar language that may be offensive to some readers)

Synopsis:

Find the girl… Trick the girl… Collect the reward. His plan was foolproof.

Strong, seductive and sexy as hell.  Harley Gates is all those things.  He’s a renowned PI who rides above the law, because he’s worth more to the cops on the front line than in a jail cell.  When a new client puts him on the task of tracking down her boyfriend’s so-called mistress, the size of the pay check says he’s going to do it, no matter the cost.  The plan is foolproof.  Find the girl.  Trick the girl.  Collect the reward.  But Miss Aliah Brooklin is no fool.

She’s as feisty as they come, provoking him with every lick of her lips.  But Aliah Brooklin isn’t ready to turn in her glass slippers just yet.  Being once burned, twice shy, she’s careful to guard her heart.  No man means no problems.  She knows this.  But this motorcycle man who calls himself Harley has her swooning like a fairy tale princess.  She knows something’s not quite right with him, but their chemistry alone has her surrendering to his wiles.

Is Aliah doomed to a life without love?  That’s what she keeps telling herself.  But tattooed sexy sure throws a kink in her plans.  If no love means no heart break, then why does this man have her heart tearing at the seams?  When Harley’s investigation flips to a new mystery, he’s forced to tell her the truth.  A vicious twist will change everything.   Note: This book is part of the Twisted series, coming after the Twisted Trilogy, however it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone (with spoilers from the first three books, of course).

Print Cover - Twisted Desire

Excerpt:

She pulls the hair tie from her high pony and shakes it out, until long waves of silky hair are framing her face and dangling down to the curve of her lower back.  Her hair whispers across the bareness of her skin, like chocolate silk.

“So, is that a yes?”  He’s not below begging at this point, if she is to say no.

“Yes to what?  I recall that you asked what I was doing later.  Was I supposed to assume that you meant you’d like to keep me busy?”

“I would like that.  Very much.”

“I’m sure you would.  Unfortunately, I’m busy.  Maybe next time.  But not likely,” she mumbles under her breath, as her voice trails off.

“Are you too good for me?  Just say it, if that’s it.”  His words stop her in her tracks.

She spins back around and props a hand on a flawless hip.  “Do I look good to you?”

She looks bad.  Very, very bad.  Her sassy mouth and bad attitude are really turning him on something fierce.  He wants to spank her.

Good isn’t the word I would use.”  His eyes violate her entire body.

He reaches out and pulls a single strand of hair from between her lips, then dusts a kiss there, in stark contrast to the loaded machine gun he’s packing in his pants.

He can see that she’s flustered.  He’s getting to her.  Little miss Aliah isn’t quite as hard as she lets on.  He, on the other hand, is as hard as he can possibly get.

“You make me feel…”  She huffs, not even knowing how to fill in her own sentence.

“Wow.  So she does feel.”

Aliah narrows her eyes, but quickly replaces that look with a smile.  “Yes.  I only play the heartless bitch.”

He watches her fidget with her necklace, then closes his hand over hers to stop her.  “You’re a good actress.”

She shoves him backward, taking what he says the wrong way.  “Get away from me.”  Though she tries to put some distance between them, her attempt at moving him is wildly unsuccessful.

He catches her wrist, worried he’s pushed her a little too hard.  With Aliah, there seems to be a fine line between O-K and F-U.

“I’m sorry…” he starts, but is cut off by Aliah’s pleased cackle.

“I am pretty good, eh?  I certainly had you.”

He couldn’t believe he had fallen for her act.  “I feel like I have to tread carefully with you.  Should I ask for permission before saying anything offensive?”

“Hah!  Where would the fun be in that?  It’s all good.  I’m sure I can handle you in real time.”

“Is that right?”

Her hesitation is sweet, but the smug expression that swipes across her face makes him want to collect her hands behind her back to restrain her, while he moulds her soft curves to his hard edges.

Would she respond to him?

He moves his face very near hers and growls.  “You only think you could handle me.”

She doesn’t back away.  “No.  I can handle you.”

His body twitches at her bold statement, only leaving him to egg her on.  He wants to taste her, when he inhales the sweet nectar inviting him to her skin.

His breath rushes over her ear.  “Prove it.”

He thinks she’ll retreat, but then he feels her silky hands discovering the inside of his leather jacket.

“I plan to.”          Copyright 2014 Christa Simpson

Blog Hop: My Writing Process

When I was asked to join in the MY WRITING PROCESS blog tour by two fellow authors, how could I say no?! Thanks to Jennifer Ammoscato http://jenniferammoscato.com/blog and Gabbie S. Duran http://gabbiesduran.com for including me. Two fabulous authors right there, with very different writing styles. You should give them each a look, whether you’re into a witty dose of chick-lit or a heart-wrenching romance, they’ve got you covered.

My Writing Process

I’m told I have to answer four specific questions. And I will. But, since Jennifer broke the rules, I figure it’s okay for me to have a free-for-all too. Rather than list the question and follow it with an answer (boorring), I’m just going to have at it. Here goes!

ORGANIZED CHAOS!!! notebook - twisted desire

That’s me. I keep an overall storyline in mind and go hog-wild with it. Let me share a couple of photos with you, which will help you to better understand my madness. The first image to the right is my electronic notebook. Those are just the stories I have hard core ideas for. Those stories must happen. That’s proof right there why it takes me so long to finish anything! And that’s not even the whole of it.

I’m constantly jotting down notes. When a thought comes into my mind, I mentally catalogue it into a story I have in the works. Keep in mind I use the term jot lightly. Most of my notes are written in a fit of inspiration, in a scrawl that even I have a hard time later deciphering. Those notes eventually get entered into my electronic notebook with a mess of other notes under its working book title. In each book tab you’ll find images, quotes, songs… anything that reminds me of my story or inspires me to write more. I won’t come back and organize that file until I’m ready to give it some form and prepare it for writing in MS Word. (more…)

Is a romance just a romance?

Pet Peeve #1: Reading Books Out of Order

There’s nothing worse than really getting into a story only to learn that it wasn’t the first book in the series.  Of course, since you love it so much, you’re bound and determined to read the first book and so you buy it and it’s okay.  But I’m sorry to say, it’s just not the same.  Especially in romances.  It stands true for me to this day.  I’ve picked up book number two in a series on a number of occasions and to date I’ve loved the second more than the first.

Welcome to my world

I don’t know what it is, and maybe it’s just me, but I seem to fall in love with characters in a sequence, just the way the author intends for me to.  By already reading the first set of characters in the next book, I’m already privy to the dynamic of their relationship and I think it steals the nostalgia of their first meeting.  The respect for their journey seems to get lost somewhere along the way, since I already know what the end result will be.

 

Now, I know that a romance is a romance, and (more…)

The Teaser You’ve All Been Waiting For!!

Here’s what I’ve been working on. JUST RIGHT, Book 4 in the Twisted Series. (Subject to change.)

TEASER:

This is Aliah we’re talking here, from Harley’s perspective…in jeans

She pulls the hair tie from her high pony and shakes it out, until long waves of silky hair are framing her face and dangling down to the curve of her lower back.  Her hair whispers across the bareness of her skin, like chocolate silk.

“So, is that a yes?”  He’s not below begging at this point, if she is to say no. (more…)

What’s next for me?

Okay,box of twisted I give up.  Apparently WordPress doesn’t want me to write to you at this hour, because it has officially not saved three versions of this one blog post. Annoying!! And my first two posts were really good too.  I’m not trying again.  Funny, this dumb post saved just fine.  Since I’m not going to dwell on it, here goes.  Twisted is in print. Woot!! Look at the box of pretties I received today!!  (more…)

Can a man and woman be just friends?

After having graduated from law school with honours, Edwin Santora, Abigail’s occasional ex and handsome housemate, could get a job anywhere he wanted. Of all the places to land, why does he take a position with her small firm? As if sharing a house with her irresistible ex wasn’t bad enough, it quickly becomes the least of her concerns. When Edwin’s macho arrogance begins to seriously affect her dating life, Abigail starts to reconsider their friendship. Not that Edwin believes a man and woman can be just friends anyway.

With Edwin’s swoon-worthy stunts and fierce persistence, Abigail finds herself catching feelings. When Edwin makes a friendly proposal, no-strings-attached, Abigail can’t resist. After some sexy role playing, she finds herself dangerously in love and wrapped back up in his powerful grip. Little does he know, she has been keeping a treacherous little secret and has set out to see if he is up for the challenge. When Abigail selfishly risks their relationship to get what she wants, will their friendship pass the test? Or will they give in to the mysterious forces trying to drive them apart?
