Okay, so I may have mentioned, once or twice, that I’m a bit of a cover whore. I love great book covers. I actually used to beg authors not to put that “signed by author” sticker on the front of books I bought because it detracted from the cover. Nowadays, I mostly buy eBooks, so thankfully, that’s no longer an issue.
Anyhow, today, I’m showcasing a new book by Elodie Parkes titled Unexpected Storm. As soon as I saw this cover, I had to take a closer look. I love storms, so it was easy for me to fall in love with the cover. 🙂
When Holly takes a vacation with friends, she never dreams she will meet someone who turns her lonely life around in just one afternoon…the question is, can this kind of heat last…
‘Unexpected Storm,’ released June 21, from Secret Cravings Publishing.
A quickie excerpt:
Will brought his other hand gently around Holly’s head, held her, and watched her eyes as he descended on her mouth.
His fingers against her ear sparked rivulets of sensation. They trickled goose bumps down her neck to her breasts.
His kiss was soft, sexy, lingering, and when he stopped, Holly followed his mouth with hers, the desperation for more kisses driving her.
Rain beat on the roof of the beach hut. People talked loudly so they could be heard. The girls, who’d squealed earlier, squealed again as thunder rolled overhead. The air was warm, sticky, vaguely smelling of rush matting, seaweed, the ocean. Holly felt sweat trickle down between her shoulder blades. It beaded under her hairline and on her top lip. She quickly licked it away and noticed how Will watched her tongue hungrily.

Where to find Elodie:
Today’s the day! Book one of my Secrets series is officially out there in the world. It’s been a long road, writing these stories. I spent a year and a half on the five of them. It began as a simple question…what would happen if someone helped people get past tough situations in their lives?
Today, the first glimpse of that answer is available. Here’s links to the book:
All Romance eBooks (ARE):
The world is full of secrets…
Drea Fortier, a reclusive philanthropist whose painful past influences her belief that there can be no happily ever after for her, reaches out to help others in the hope she can transform their pain and give them hope for the future. Drea’s own story, as well as that of her assistant, Michael Smith, is slowly revealed throughout the Secrets series.
Book One: Masquerade
Frigid bitch. The words seep into Beth Ritmour’s soul, no matter how hard she tries to deny them. A year after her divorce, they still haunt her. So when a mysterious benefactor offers a solution to her problem, Beth takes a vacation from her job as a dental hygienist and follows a cryptic note to Chicago, where she’s soon ensconced as a waitress at Club Masquerade. Although how she’s going to prove she’s not frigid is hard to figure out when the boss makes it very clear that sex, or any precursors to sex, with patrons or employees is strictly taboo. It’s not an easy rule to follow, especially when one deliciously hot bartender keeps very, very close tabs on her.
I’m uber-excited about a new series I’ve got coming out soon with Evernight Publishing.
has been my passion for the past several months. There’s both an over-arcing story and an individual story, complete with the Happily Ever After I love to write about, in each of the five books.
As soon as I can, I’ll post more. In the meantime, keep an eye out for some other series I’ll be posting about on this blog.
