Fall Into #Romance Blog Hop #Giveaway SAVANNAH’S GHOST TALE by @KaliWillows

Romantic excerpt from Kali Willows’ novel, SAVANNAH’S GHOST TALE (Paranormal, contemporary, erotic romance)

*Winner’s Choice* for the Fall Into Romance Blog Hop. Don’t miss out on your chance to win this sultry tale.

Savannah Teale has an obsession with the supernatural—to disprove it. An unorthodox Ghost Hunter with a dark secret, she doesn’t believe in life after death. Not anymore. Being romantically challenged since the traumatic death of her fiancé, she has no interest in dating, but her sister’s loving interference has led her to accept a date for a 1Night Stand.

Cameron Evans is one of Savannah’s most handsome, charismatic, and sexy bachelors. He’s an exceptionally gifted tour guide, and a psychic, but hasn’t learned how to turn off his gifts. Since his conversations with the dead are a turn-off for most women—to put it mildly—Cameron has turned to Madame Eve to find a woman who can accept him for himself and all he has to give.

They may be a great match—if a certain, lingering ghost would just step out of the picture.

What the hell is going on? A shadow flashed across the stone threshold, startling her. Her heart raced and she stumbled down the steps, her eyes flitting frantically back and forth, scanning for movement but finding none. Her clumsy feet tangling, she stumbled over a flat stone and toppled backward.

A sudden heat surrounded her and she paused in mid-fall, suspended over the dark pit of an open grave. Breathless and terror-stricken, it took her a moment to realize the warmth was strong arms wrapped around her. Back on her feet, she spun around to find Cameron, the tour guide, watching her with an amused expression.

“Are you okay?” He gripped her shaking shoulders.

“I’m fine, I just saw—I tripped.” Vannah tried to catch her breath, her mind racing with madness.

“You should watch where you’re stepping in a cemetery.”

“I didn’t expect—I didn’t realize they still buried people here.”

“You know, it’s frowned upon to be raiding graves at night around these parts.”

“I wasn’t raiding anything.” She jerked out of his hold and grabbed her bag from the ground, jamming her detector back inside. I’m glad none of my equipment ended up in that grave. She yanked her twisted camisole top and shorts back into place.

“What did you see?” His penetrating gaze sent a current through her chest.

“Nothing, I didn’t—there’s nothing to see, let’s go.”

“Whoa, whoa, hang on. Something scared you. Tell me what you saw.”

If she wasn’t throbbing with terror right now, she might have actually swooned under his gaze. “Are you deaf? I said I didn’t see anything.” She turned to walk away.

“Who is Mark?”

With a white hot jolt, her stomach bottomed out and her feet froze to the ground. “Who is Mark and why can’t he breathe?”

Fall Into #Romance Blog Hop #Giveaway #IAN1 #Ebooks

Happy Friday fellow authors, bloggers and readers!

Today is the start of the Fall Into Romance Blog Hop, and I do believe it’s going to be fun.

We are celebrating romance! I, for one, think romance is worth a celebration.

Joining me on the hop is a list of talented authors, who are offering some great prizes.

Before I get into my prizes, I’d like to highlight two of my all-time favorite romance novels. You see, I’m a paranormal romance junkie and these 2 books helped lead me in that path. Creepin’ and Vegas Bites. They happen to be anthologies. I read these books before I became an author and I fell in love them. I read them both more than once. While writing this blog, I’m considering reading them again.

Creepin'Vegas Bites

It wasn’t just the steamy romance. It was the action and of course the paranormal aspect in the stories. When you add vampires and werewolves to the mix, there’s bound to be some hot supernatural action. I loved all of the characters and their dynamic personalities. Even all these years later, I still refer back to them and how they made me feel. These 2 books will always fall in line with many as my favorite romances.

Now onto the prizes:

How do you win these prizes, you ask? Oh, it’s very easy.

1. First, leave a comment answering this question:

The Romance Reviews Hop

Free From the Thorns of Red Rose Publishing

I’m happy to report that 2 more talented authors have severed ties with the company Red Rose Publishing.

The lovely Kali Willows, and my friend, Sam Cheever are now able to exhale. The nightmare is over and now they can move on with their lives with smiles on their faces.

This is, without a doubt, a reason to celebrate. *lifting wine glass*

Luckily for Sam, she had a pit-bull lawyer on her side, so her departure from the RRP was painless and done with little hassle. Kali was not so fortunate. The owner attempted to manipulate her with lies and threats. While I left out the grimy details in my post about Red Rose Publishing, (Click here to read my past post –>> http://blog.yvonnenicolas.com/2013/04/26/no-longer-caught-in-the-thorns-of-red-rose-publishing/) Kali took the time to take you on the nightmarish journey of her experience with said publishing company.

Keep in mind, this is not a vicious attack, but more of a warning for the aspiring authors out there, who are seeking a publishing company to call home. Take note from authors who have been through the darkest parts of the fray.
