SYNOPSIS

He doesn’t do relationships.  Neither does she.  But they can’t fight the attraction any longer…

Nash Walker hides the demons that consume his soul.  He buries them deep and distracts himself with sex.  Anything to avoid facing a past full of heartbreak and regret; anything to numb the pain that he struggles with daily.

Velvet Carr has spent years fighting her demons.  It’s a fight she’s winning.  That is, until Nash crashes his way into her life and into her heart.  

It started out as a bit of harmless fun between friends; it wasn’t meant to get complicated for either of them.  But when two broken souls come together and arouse unwanted feelings in each other, complicated is what happens. 

Can Nash and Velvet help heal each other and revive the love in their lives that they’ve both been refusing to allow in for years?  Or will they let their demons ruin any chance they may have at happiness?

BONUS SCENE


Velvet

            I watched Nash as he walked from the bathroom back into the bedroom.  Dressed in nothing but a towel, water still dripping from his hair and down his body, I couldnt take my eyes off him.  Ink covered nearly every patch of skin on his neck, chest, stomach and arms, and I realised I didnt have a clue what the significance was for most of his tattoos.  Unfortunately, we didnt have time to get into that this morning; we had to be at Harlows cafe in just over an hour.  She was testing out some new cake recipes for the cafe and had asked for volunteers to test them.  Nash didnt even have to think about it; hed accepted straight away, and I could never say no to Harlows food.  I made a mental note to ask him about his tattoos tonight.
            You going to stare at me all day, baby, or get ready? Nash asked with a smirk. 
            As he said this, he removed his towel and finished drying himself off.  Of course, my gaze was diverted lower, and I took in everything he had to offer.
            Sucking in a breath, I murmured, I think I could happily skip Harlows food if it meant I got to stare at you all day.
            Desire flashed in his eyes, and he closed the distance between us in two determined strides.  Curling his hand around my neck, he growled, Id eat you over her food any day of the fuckin week.  He pulled me closer and dropped his lips to mine.  Wed had sex twice already this morning, but our need for each other was never fully satisfied, and his kiss told me how much he wanted me again.
            I placed my hands on his chest and gently pushed until his mouth let me go.  Nash, I dont want to let Harlow down.
            Ill make it quick, he promised, his eyes almost begging me to agree.
            My body was screaming hell yes, but I pushed him again, and took a step back.  Theres not enough time; Ive still got to do my hair and face.
            They look fine to me, he said, clearly not wanting to let this go.
            Thats because you only care about my boobs, I said as I walked towards the bathroom.
            And your pussy, babe; I care about that too. 
            My back was to him, but I could feel his eyes on me.  I turned to give him one last look before I went into the bathroom, and sure enough he was staring at my ass.  Tonight, theyre all yours.
            Seriously?  Youre going to say no to this? he asked, his hand pointing at this dick.
            I know its hard for you to believe that any woman could ever say no to that, but yes, Im saying no, I said, teasing him a little. 
            He shook his head in disbelief.  Why the hell did I choose the only woman on this planet who has the ability to knock me back? he grumbled.
            Obviously your brain was doing the thinking that day, rather than your dick, I shot back at him.
            I began applying my makeup, waiting for his comeback, but he didnt say another word.  I could hear him getting dressed so I figured our conversation was over, and I focused on getting ready.
            A couple of minutes later, he appeared in the doorway.  I continued applying makeup, but watched him in the mirror.  He was leaning against the door with his arms folded across his chest.  His eyes were roaming over my body, and electricity shot through me.  I wanted him just as much as he wanted me.
            Nash, you need to leave because if you dont, were never going to make it to Harlows.
            He continued devouring me with his eyes, until finally he pushed off from the door, and made his way to me.  Standing behind me, he gently swept my hair to the side, and bent to kiss my neck.  His hand slid around my waist, and he murmured, Fuck, I could watch you all day, sweet thing.  I dont even need my cock in you to be a happy man, but tonight therell be none of this denying me shit going on.
            My body tingled with lust.  You do realise that I could never fully deny you, baby.  If you really pushed the point, Id be yours in a heartbeat, I admitted.
            I kinda like it when you say no.  It excites the fuck out of me to have to chase you.  But, I appreciate the fact that the word no isnt one that comes out of your sweet mouth very often. 
            Ill be sure to use it every now and then; I like it when you chase me.
            Fuck, he muttered, and straightened.  Taking a step away from me, his eyes found mine in the mirror, and he said, This is going to be the longest fuckin day, babe.  Harlow better appreciate what Im giving up for her.
            I smiled sweetly at him, more to tease him than anything because I knew this kind of smile did him in.  Ill make it worth your while, Nash.
            He raked his hand through his hair.  Ill be fuckin holding you to that, he promised.
            He muttered something else under his breath that I didnt quite catch and then turned and stalked out of the bathroom.  I loved getting him going; it had to be one of my favourite things to do.  The thought of Nash and what hed do to me tonight had me all hot and bothered.  He was right; today really was going to be a long day.

Excerpt-Divider_thumb1

My eyes fluttered open and Sam was standing beside me in the water, his hands gently resting on the float. I blinked a few times, trying to adjust to the sunlight. I’d fallen asleep in the water and hadn’t meant to, but it was just so damn relaxing!
“Hi, you,” I said with a smile. “I didn’t think you were going to make it.”
I turned a little bit and slid off my float into the water. After dunking myself under to force myself awake, I smoothed my hair back and wrapped my arms around Sam for an innocent hug, something we’ve done every time we’ve seen each other for years.
“Well, I couldn’t resist. Hang out with Mark? Or see you half naked and all wet? Hmm… decisions, decisions.”
I laughed as I pulled away. My cheeks felt hot from more than just the sun. His comment made me blush. My mouth opened as I prepared to ask where Jayne had gone, but Sam surprised me with a kiss instead.
“Sorry. I couldn’t resist that either,” he said.
Blushing again, I stepped back and waded through the water to the stairs. “So where did Jayne go? Is she inside?”
“I can’t believe you didn’t wake up sooner. I’ve been here for about a half hour. We sat and talked while you napped in the water. She went to meet her mom for lunch.” The sound of water sloshing about came from behind me just before I felt strong arms wrap around me. “Which means you’re all mine for about an hour and a half with all that traffic.”
Sam held me tight from behind, one arm around my bare stomach and the thumb of his other hand gently stroking my throat. My body quickly reacted to his touch, even in the cool water. He lowered his mouth and began kissing his way from my shoulder up to my ear.
“Do you want me?” he asked, pressing himself against my backside causing me to gasp a little.
I nodded. “Of course I do.” It was all I could manage to say.
Without another word Sam turned me around and slipped the side ties on my bikini bottoms and used them to tie my wrists to the pool ladder. Once secure, he slipped the ties on my halter-style bikini top and pulled it off before wringing it out and folding the small amount of material down once and using it as a blindfold. I was actually thoroughly impressed with how well the black cloth triangles functioned as such and was suddenly grateful that I couldn’t find one with the much needed underwire.
The water around me suddenly took on a whole new feel as his hands slid down my body. The sound of the water lightly splashing against the edge of the pool and the cold metal and plastic of the steps leading into the pool added to my excitement. Hearing and feeling all around me, but unable to see. It was incredible in such an environment!
Sam kissed me hard, but only for a second as he slowly lowered me into the water, leading my shoulders down to rest on one of the steps and guiding the rest of my body to float on top of the water. First, I felt his mouth at my knees, the heat of his lips greatly contrasting against the coolness of my wet skin.
Slowly, I felt my hips rising out of the water. The soft cloth of my bikini bottom bonds pulled at my wrists as my weight shifted, but not uncomfortably so. My shoulders rested more firmly on the step, the water rising just over them, but not high enough to reach my face or breasts. The warm summer air felt cool as it brushed across my hardened nipples, the chilling water droplets immediately sending shivers through my body with every light gust of air that blew past.
Lips… That’s all I could feel. Sam’s hands lightly bit into my hips as he held them firmly, just barely out of the water. His lips trailing kisses up my thighs ...

11 Things You Didn't Know About A Taste For Danger
  1. A Taste For Danger is part of the "Chasing The Taste" series. The first book in the series was called A Taste For Killing. 
  2. All the books in the series focus on one or the other of two main heroes, Carolyn Woods and Jack Heart. A Taste For Killing is told from Carolyn's point of view. A Taste For Danger is told from Jack's point of view. Each book can also be read as a stand-alone. 
  3. Carolyn and Jack are both independent detectives who sometimes cooperate and other times compete with one another. 
  4. All the books in the "Chasing The Taste" series are about characters, both good and bad who are chasing something they feel they are missing. This might be money or fame or more nebulous things such as love or self- esteem. 
  5. A Taste For Killing takes place around the construction trade. 
  6. A Taste For Danger takes place in the arena of large corporations. 
  7. Both Jack and Carolyn have very healthy sexual appetites. But is it with each other? You have to read the books to find out. 
  8. Both books take place in a large city. Maybe New York? ; ) 
  9. Romance is not far away from Carolyn and Jack in both books, in several directions! 
  10. The author of A Taste For Danger and the "Chasing The Taste" series also wrote a short "Flirt" for Breathless Press called Eyes Only. That book was about the area of clandestine operations. 
  11. With H.K. Sterling's penchant for mystery and suspense, you probably haven't heard the last from Jack or Carolyn!

Ransom by Faith S. Lynn - Blog Tour


Title: Ransom
Author: Faith S. Lynn
Genre: New Adult / Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: June 30, 2014


What would you do to get it all back?

Lynkin:
Desperate, careless, frantic, hieness, and frenzied. These are just some of the words that could describe my state of being after everything was ripped from under me. I will do anything to get it all back. And I do mean ANYTHING. I just didn't expect what I would get in the process. She changes everything.

Sage:
Carefree pretty much sums up my entire life. My father has made sure that I have never and will never want for anything. I have a fiance on the fast track to business success and a best friend that will always be there for me. My future is set and I couldn't be happier with it. Then it all changed in an instant. He took me away from everything that I thought I wanted, needed. Now nothing will ever be the same.














I am a New Adult author. From Lies to Promises is my debut novel! I am wife to the best husband of the freaking universe and mother to 3 majorly awesome kids! Reading, Xbox, cooking and WINE just barely scrape the surface of who I am. Everyone who knows me will say I am a nerd... and I would agree. Want to know a secret? I am a super hero. True story!



I have an obsession with anything people consider odd and I think learning is the bees knees. I have an Associates degree in Business Management and was an accountant for 7 years. I know, boooring! But I like having a problem and seeing a solution.

Maybe, just maybe, this is why I enjoy writing so much!
