The Agreement



The Agreement (An Indecent Proposal)



Title: The Agreement (An Indecent Proposal)
Authors: J.C. Reed & Jackie Steele
Released: December 16th, 2015
Genre: Mature New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance
350pp
Blurb:

Predictable. Boring. Safe.
That’s what life is supposed to be like. As the rightful heir to Waterfront Gardens, I would gladly refuse my inheritance. I don’t want the money. I sure don’t want to have anything to do with its dark past. Except for the letters of my deceased mother, I would be willing to cut losses and move on and give up my rich lifestyle. But my stepfather expects me to marry. And then there is my new fianc√©.
My hot, fake fiancé.

Tall, handsome, mysterious.
That’s how Chase Wright is.
Unfortunately, he is not mine.
Unfortunately, too, the day I hired him, I signed an agreement.

When an innocent plan lands us engaged, none of us are prepared for the consequences. No one warned us that we could fall in love. Maybe The Agreement wasn’t such a good idea.

I should stay away from him and forget about our one night together.
Except he doesn’t want to….

L.G. Keltner - Christmas trees

I’d like to thank the Cover Girls Dani and Jax for hosting me today!  It’s great to be here!

Today I’d like to help you get into the holiday spirit by celebrating Christmas trees.  Those of you who go through the process of putting up a Christmas tree know how much work goes into it.  Just getting the boxes filled with decorations out of storage is a chore.  There are almost always entire sections of Christmas lights that don’t work, and the occasional favorite ornament is to be found in pieces at the bottom of the box.  Some of my worst experiences, though, come from untangling the light strings that somehow knotted themselves up while in storage.  Growing up, my dad frequently gifted this task to me since he didn’t want to do it.  I guess I can’t blame him.

These issues are bad enough, but as a mother of two young boys, I’ve discovered a whole new set of tree-related challenges.  Here is a short list of the things I find myself saying all too often.

1. “Don’t climb the Christmas tree!”
2. “Why is the tree lying on its side?”
3. “Don’t throw your brother’s shoes into the tree!”
4. “Yes, your toy firetruck looks lovely as a decoration, but I think it might be too heavy for the branch it’s on.”
5. “Yes, I know you want to see presents under the tree, but that doesn’t mean you can steal and wrap your brother’s favorite toy car.  And no, you can’t wrap your brother up as a present either!”

What holiday decorating challenges have you faced?

Now I hope you enjoy a snippet from Self-Help 101 or: How I Learned to Take Over the World Through Tolerating My Family.

*     *     *
“I’m writing a self-help book about how to achieve world domination.”
Stewart didn’t look the least bit surprised.  He simply nodded and asked, “Do you think there’s a market for that?”
“I hope so.  I don’t know how much longer I can stand babysitting, and not many places around here are hiring right now.”  And those that were tended to be put off by my personality.
Stewart smirked.  “People trust you with their children?”

Title: Self-Help 101 or: How I Learned to Take Over the World Through Tolerating My Family
Author: L.G. Keltner
Genre: Holiday/Humor
Length: 27,000
Cover Art: L.G. Keltner
Release Date: December 1, 2015


Blurb:

Dani Finklemeier has decided to write a self-help book about how to take over the world, but she’s not sure where to start.  After all, she’s only seventeen and looking for a better way to make money than babysitting.  She buys a self-help book that promises to teach her how to write a self-help book in the hope of getting the job done.

Not that it’ll be easy to get any work done this holiday season.  Her family is staying at the house for Christmas, and fights break out almost immediately.  Dani also has to deal with the fallout from an unexpected kiss with her best friend Seth and the feelings that go along with it.  On edge around her family and unsure how to interact with the one person she’s trusted with everything in the past, she can only take what inspiration she can from the crazy circumstances surrounding her and see what happens.

One way or another, it should be an interesting holiday.

Bio:

L.G. Keltner spends most of her time trying to write while also cleaning up after her crazy but wonderful kids and hanging out with her husband.  Her favorite genre of all time is science fiction, and she’s been trying to write novels since the age of six.  Needless to say, those earliest attempts weren’t all that good. 

Her non-writing hobbies include astronomy and playing Trivial Pursuit.

You can typically find L.G. lurking around her blog, on Twitter, or on her Facebook page.

The Lover's Surrender by J.C. Reed


The Lover's Surrender by J.C. Reed


Title: The Lover's Surrender
Author: J.C. Reed
Released: November 25th, 2015
Genre: Mature New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance
350pp
Synopsis:

LOVE…sometimes it’s good. Sometimes it’s bad. And sometimes it’s dangerous.

Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, is sure of one of thing. She should never fully trust someone who has secrets. Especially when said bad boy is the sexiest man walking on earth. She is running away and has no intention of ever returning to him. But when a friend is killed and the one man she thought she would never meet again is accused of murder, she knows the story doesn’t add up.

Dangerously sexy and arrogant millionaire Jett Mayfield knows his secrets are not doing him any favors. However, when they serve to save Brooke’s life, he has no intention of revealing them. When problems spiral out of control and his life is turned upside down, he knows he needs her more than ever. He needs her more than he knows. But will he be strong enough to do what needs to be done?

In a world where truth shatters and danger is closing in on them, where love is their only sanctuary, will they be able to find each other or is it time to let each other go?
