Meet Love Around the Corner

Playing the Part

By Lynn Rae

Melanie Sheraton trained herself not think too much about life beyond the confines of her small-town and the odd jobs she juggles to stay afloat. When a movie crew arrives, complete with an aggravatingly handsome star, Mel fights harder than ever to keep her desires and dreams buried as she plays chauffeur.

The last thing jaded action star Thomas Locke expects to find on location is a curvy driver who jump-starts his heart.

HRplayingthepartBlurb :

Independent Melanie Sheraton has to hustle for odd jobs in her small town to eke out a living. When the opportunity to act as a driver for some movie folks comes up, she jumps at the chance to earn an extra paycheck. What she didn’t bank on was one of her passengers invading her imagination, something she resists since no movie star would ever be interested in her.

At a crossroads in his professional life, action star Thomas ‘Wheeler’ Locke is in Ohio for a role he hopes will launch his career in a new, serious direction. Instead of concentrating on his acting, he finds himself growing more and more distracted by his feisty driver and her irascible ways.

Dancing around the attraction growing between them, both Mel and Thomas struggle to maintain their distance as the time for filming grows short. Will a reunion at the movie’s London premiere bring them together, or will their disparate lives keep them apart?

Shiloh Saddler Talks Lust at First Sight

Lust at First Sight

Image A popular trope in romance novels is love at first sight. I’m not a believer in love at first sight. I don’t understand how a person can fall in love in an instant or five minutes. Really a relationship starts out as lust and then deepens to love.

The challenge with writing a romance novel is writing this transition in a believable and exciting way. There are so many novels already written that there aren’t many (I know most people say any, but I like to leave the door open) original ideas any more. This puts the burden of a good story on the shoulders of your characters.

In Saltwater Lover Captain Mather and Kojo make an unlikely pair. I am a sucker for forbidden love. As they say opposites attract and Captain Mather and Kojo are perhaps the most opposite two men can get. Captain Mather is a short, stocky white man who makes his living as a slaver. He is forty years old and has had his fair share of lovers over the years. Kojo is a native African who is captured by Captain Mather’s men. In his early twenties he is tall and wiry. He’s never had any lover before, and his attraction to Captain Mather confuses and excites him.

Captain Mather may be the devil – to sell him or steal his heart.

 

Blurb:

In 1800, Kojo is a native African with deep connections to the spirits—but those spirits choose not to save him from the slaving ship. He’s captured and taken aboard, where he meets Captain Mather. During the long journey to America, not even the spirits can save him from their growing attraction. Love blooms. A doomed love. For when they land, Kojo’s fate is to be sold.

 

Captain Mather can’t imagine Kojo being treated as a slave. Desperate to spare him from that life, the captain hides him, taking him to his home. When he’s blackmailed by a mutinous former crewmember, there seems little choice but to sell his ship and pay. Anything to save the man he loves.

 

Excerpt:

 When the captain reached him, Kojo’s pulse quickened, jumping several beats. The man’s green gaze scanned his muscular chest, glistening with sweat from the long walk. He wrapped a hand around Kojo’s chin, drawing his face gently toward him. His touch was not forceful as Kojo had expected, only enough pressure to direct the movement. The captain smelled of tobacco and rum and a spice Kojo couldn’t name. It was a manly, intoxicating scent.

The man’s calloused fingers trailed down Kojo’s neck, lingering for a moment at the base of his throat. Kojo felt the man’s hot breath on his lips, merely inches from his own. His round face and toned arms made it hard for Kojo to guess his age. A few strands of silver were mixed into his beard and at his hairline but were hard to see—perhaps forty?

Unbridled lust gleamed in the captain’s eyes and yet Kojo wasn’t terrified. It made him feel alive, wanted. Under the man’s predatory gaze, Kojo’s cock thickened, straining against the confines of his breechcloth. No man had looked at him or touched him like that before. And he liked it.

The captain smiled, the harshness in his eyes easing by a fraction.

Kojo’s cheeks burned.

One of the catchermen laughed, peering at Kojo’s loins.

The heat in Kojo’s cheeks spread throughout his whole body. He lowered his gaze, staring at his feet.

The captain shouted at the laughing man and he shut up.

The muscular white man guarding him started arguing with the captain. Kojo didn’t know what they were saying, but the man pointed at him. The captain must have told the man to guard another section of slaves, because his guard changed.

Returning his attention to Kojo, he tipped up his chin as if to tell him not to be ashamed. Then he slipped his fingers around the sacred bead hanging on a piece of leather from his neck. Kojo figured the man was going to cut it off with the small knife hanging in a sheath on his belt. But he didn’t.

The captain’s hand barely brushed his chest as he let go of the bead. The contact was so light Kojo wondered if he had imagined it. Gooseflesh rose on his arms. Then he was gone, leaving him alone with his strange, unmet desires.

Can two artists salvage true love out of the unexpected consequences from one night of passion?

Image

Link Jacks is done with women and determined to focus solely on music and rock-band Becket’s upcoming album. He’s been living as a marketing-prop bad-boy rock star for so long he doesn’t remember who he really is anymore. Not until he meets Madison, the emotionally guarded and theoretically off-limits younger sister of his best friend’s wife.

Madison just wants to get her fledgling tattoo career off the ground and stop relying on the generous charity of her wealthy brother-in-law to get by.  She knows she should never get involved with the likes of Link but his presence is downright intoxicating. Her indiscretion will lead to an Internet sex video and media frenzy.  Their one wild night of passion will have scandalous repercussions and force each of them to confront their inner fears and emotional demons. 

Isabel’s Awakening, on sale 4/22/13

It’s been five busy years and still Newcastle born singer/guitarist Thomas Morgan is punishing himself for his younger brother’s death.

Thomas’ young, fashion model wife once led her husband’s idolizing younger brother, Chris, into both drugs and an adulterous relationship.  The loss of his brother and total destruction of his marriage seemingly destroyed Thomas.  To avoid entanglements with others, even his young son, Thomas focused on promoting his music and the management of his now highly profitable record company. He thought he had everything at a safe distance, at least until Isabel literally slammed into his life.

Young high school teacher, Isabel Warren, finds herself falling head over heels in love with the sexy as sin guitarist for the rock band, Becket.  Soon Isabel’s orderly world of lesson plans, thesis writing and student loan debt is competing against desire, passion and her vulnerable heart.

Isabel struggles to navigate her newly stirred passions with her rising academic career and independent nature.  As the sex sizzles, the two lovers will have to decide which parts of their dreams they will sacrifice for their fledgling relationship.

Can Thomas ever trust and love again, and will the young woman he meets ever have the confidence and strength to be with him?
