Excerpt:

From the middle…
At three o’clock, Jake once again rode up on Midnight, dressed in a suit and white Stetson. This time, he had a rose attached to his lapel. And one long, stem white rose in his hand. Tessa watched him as he stood, waiting for his bride. She nearly screamed as she watched him. He was calm, cool and collected. She was a nervous mess.
She ran her hands down her hair and clutched. Just then…

An #Interview with Genevieve Scholl, #Author of Love Clause #Checkherout #Romance

  • Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Well, there isn’t much to tell. I’m a small town girl, with a small town heart. I have my passions in life, and they include writing, reading, photography, design, art, and travel. I live day to day, finding even a few seconds to enjoy the things I love in life. I’m a proud aunt, and soon to be one the second time around (fingers crossed for a boy). I am Texan born, New York bred, and plan to retire in Ireland.

  • As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I’ve wanted to do a lot of different things in my life: police work, law, writing, photography, art, etc. I never really settled on anything until now… Now, I am a writer, and am studying to be a Paralegal.

  • When did you first start writing?

In my Junior year of High School. I was bullied a lot in school, and my writing as a way to escape, and sometimes seek revenge. Eventually, I just realized how much I loved to write, and the rest is history.

  • When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?

See above answer…. Though, I decided to publish one day when I was bored with my life of sitting at home, in front of the television, doing nothing but eating. My first published book was like therapy for me; getting me out of the funk that was my life.

  • How long does it take you to write a book?

It depends on the book… If I am on a roll, I could write a whole book in a month, but something always seems to get in the way or something, so it ends up being longer.

  • Where do you get your information and/or ideas for your books?

The characters. I stick to the theory that authors are special, because they can hear the voices of these characters, whose stories need to be told. I’ve said before that I get ideas from songs, locations, etc, but the truth is… it’s the characters talking to me, but disguising their voices in these songs, locations, situations.

  • What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

Photography is my second biggest passion, but I don’t get to do it often, because of where I live. There isn’t much to take pictures of, unless you want a ton of pictures of buildings, tress, and roadways.

  • What does your family think of your writing?

They are proud of me… I know they are, even if they don’t always say it. The only problem they see with it, is the love scenes…But, I think all authors have that problem with their families. I mean, who wouldn’t be a little embarrassed that your grandmother, aunt, mother is reading a sexual scene that you wrote?

  • What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating books?

Honestly, I’d say the most surprising thing would be myself. I’ve surprised myself that I can actually write. I mean, I was always proud of my stories, but I never thought I was even remotely good enough to publish and have readers actually enjoy it.

  • How did you choose what genre to write in?

I’m a Romance junkie; enough said.

  • If you could have a signed copy of any novel what would it be and why?

Anything by Darynda Jones, because she’s is an awesome writer and woman. Nora Roberts, because, well, who wouldn’t? Debbie MaComber, because I love her books to pieces-it’s like the characters are my family. Gosh, there are so many!

Note from the author:

Portions of the proceeds from all of my books and short stories are donated to charity. Right now, we are donating to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure for Breast Cancer, but we are constantly adding charities as more books are published; coming up next: Toys for Tots.

About Genevieve Scholl:

IMG_5917-2_ppbw

I’m just a small town girl with a heart for the country life. I’m very shy and pretty much a loner, but my writing helps me be more outgoing and talk to various people that I would otherwise have a hard time approaching. I don’t write for the money or the fame, but rather to tell a story that needs to be told; whether that is my story or a character’s story. As a lot of people know, from my various interviews, I started writing to express my anger and hurt over the bullying that I experienced in High School, but eventually I just realized that I loved to tell stories. I was born in Texas, grew up and still live in Upstate New York, and want to retire in Ireland.

Book Description:

love claus ebook cover

Cindy Gingerman loves the Christmas holiday, but sometimes she feels like she’s the only one. Her parents don’t celebrate, her best friend would rather be in Tahiti than watch the snow fall, and Cindy’s been single for a while. What a depressing Christmas.
Until, Trent shows up at her door dressed like Santa and holding a tree. Something draws her to him and she lets him into her home and her head…
Now, the only question is, will she let him into her heart as well?

Trent Claus knew that Cindy was his destined bride. From the moment he saw her, there was no denying it. The only challenge he had to face was getting her to believe it as well. Can he do it?

“Sweet Cindy…”

He believes he can, until his father falls ill and he has to move his plans along a lot faster than expected. What will Cindy think of his little town and the truth of who he is?
Will she run like his ex-girlfriend had? Or will she stay and make him the luckiest, and happiest, man on Earth?

“Please don’t go…”

The two deputies struggle to resist their mutual attraction and abide by the no-fraternizing rules, but passion blazes and teeters on the brink of love. With a killer targeting them and danger lurking at every turn, Brandy doubts their love can blossom, especially when she puts Officer Skip Coogan—Blade’s best friend and father figure—at the top of her suspect list.

About the Author:molson-authorphoto

Award winning author, Mal Olson, writes adrenaline kicked romantic suspense. She enjoys skydiving, ski jumping, SCUBA, hang gliding, big wave surfing, car racing, mountain climbing—that is, vicariously through her characters, who are always kick-ass, and often boss her around rather than allowing her to spin her stories the way she intends. (She did, however, personally engage in zip lining this past summer.)

Her debut novel Shadow of Deceit , released by The Wild Rose Press in 2012, is an edge of the seat romantic suspense-thriller set in Milwaukee and parts of northern Wisconsin. Shadow of Deceit  earned Mal a spot as finalist in WisRWA’s 2013 Write Touch Reader’s Award contest for published authors.

A couple of her favorite reviews came from Beverly at The Wormhole, who said, “Wow! This one has it all! Non-stop action, hot and sexy characters, betrayal, smokin’ romance, and a thrilling plot–” and Gothic Mom’s Book Review, which stated, “In the 150+ books that I read per year, there are very few that receive a five star rating. Shadow of Deceit  did just that. Non stop action, sexual tension, an adventure that had me on the edge of my seat…A fantastic book that had me from page one…”

Too Sexy For His Stetson is another romantic suspense-thriller. This time Olson’s bossy characters lead her to the mountains of Northern Idaho, where a deputy sheriff and his female rookie deal with menacing white supremacists, a homicide, a murder cold case, and a threat to a nearby dam—all while trying to keep their hands off each other. Meanwhile, Rambo, the hero’s retired K-9, quietly steals the show.

Olson also offers two short stories. Danger Zone , which has spent months in the Kindle top 100 free romantic suspense category, is a guaranteed fifteen minute pulse pounder where two strangers survive a rock ‘n roll landing on an icy Milwaukee runway and chase a could-be terrorist into the danger zone. Me and Brad , a feel good romance, features an irresistible K-9 and was ranked in the Kindle free top 100 list for months in the Contemporary Romance category.

Description:

Summer Fitzgerald is a person of interest in the robbery and murder of her former boss. With no resources she is forced to take a job as a nanny. To her surprise the job consists of watching four, almost full grown, cowboys and helping their handsome, older brother Holden O’Leary.

Veterinarian Holden O’Leary moves his family to a Montana ranch for a fresh start. His time is soon consumed rescuing neglected horses and he needs help with his bothers.  Despite wishing otherwise, he soon finds that Summer holds his heart.

Will scandals and old secrets keep them from trusting each other or will Summer finally get her desire?

Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains adult sexual situations and/or adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.

Excerpts:

Holden opened the door and made a bee line for her. He took her hand in his strong one and led her outside. “We have a tour I believe?”

Summer laughed. “Why, yes. I haven’t seen much of your ranch.”

Holden helped her into the truck and got in on his side. “It could take days to see it all properly.” He gave her a wicked sidelong glance.

Summer lightly punched his shoulder. “We aren’t really going to tour the ranch are we?”

His mouth opened in mock outrage. “I don’t know what you mean.”

“I hope you brought protection.”

Holden laughed deeply. “Of course I did.”

“Come to think of it you had some with you when you came to my room. Do you keep them in your wallet or something?”

Holden laughed even harder. “No, only when I’m around you.”

His answer brightened her day. “So, where are we going first?”

“I figured you’d want to see my cattle.”

“Cattle it is. Hurry, please.”

“Anxious for some cowboy loving?”

Summer smiled. “You know I am!”

Holden turned off the road and headed toward a group of trees. “The hell with the cattle,” he said, parking the truck. “I need to kiss you.”

Description:

She can survive anything except the men who love her.

 

Perris Dalton doesn’t need a man. She left southwest Wyoming broken, so transformed by fighting cancer even her big hunk of a lawman couldn’t make love to her. Now she’s back.

Her new job is to mitigate conflicts with raptors at a power plant’s coal mine. There’s no reason for her path to cross her ex-husband’s. But when an environmental demonstration inexplicably centers in on her, Sheriff Noah Dalton steps in, confident he can win back the woman who once walked out on him.

As the demonstration spirals into personal attacks, Noah, Perris’s father the sheep rancher, and her brother the college student hatch a secret plot to protect her.

In an epic contest of wills with a lone woman survivor used to solving her own problems, and three Western heroes just as determined to save her, all hell starts to break loose.

Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains explicit sex scenes and/or situations and adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.

Excerpt:

“What did Collins do?”

“He…” Perris hesitated, a pause just a bit too long for Noah.

“Perri?” he barked into the phone. “What did he do?”

“He threatened me. It’s nothing. He was angry.”

 

He looked at me.

She couldn’t add that. How stupid would it sound, telling Noah that Collins had looked at her? On the other hand, she was afraid Noah would put too much stock in her instincts. Maybe he’d believe she was right to be afraid. It might make her feel even worse to have the county sheriff reinforce her fears.

“Perri, I want to come over.”

Noah’s voice was soft, deceptively soft. Everything in Perris fought against giving in to that familiar tone. She knew he wanted to be near her. And she wanted it too. She could feel herself weakening. He was too much temptation; some secret part of her still considered them married and always would. They had once been more to each other than mere vows.

But she could say no to him now, where before she never could. No other man had ever made her so trembly in the knees she toppled backward into bed from a few kisses. She couldn’t let him get so near. She had no willpower when it came to Noah Dalton. She was well aware that that much, at least, had not changed.

About the Author:

My fiction is contemporary, so the settings and the characters are completely modern and struggle with today’s issues. But the men and women in my writing leave a big footprint, because their personalities and their solutions to problems hark back to the iconic days which really don’t exist anymore. My characters truly live by the Code of the West.

Christi Williams writes contemporary sensual romance set in Wyoming. My strong heroines love cowboys and lawmen! I love hearing from readers, so please contact me.
