Special Guest Jennifer Lowery

23 Oct

Hey all, please join me in welcoming my good friend and debut author Jennifer Lowery. She’s here to share her favorite scene from her book HARD CORE and she’s got a surprise for us…*hint* it’s something to do with a giveaway but I don’t want to say anymore than that!  lol
Now…take it away Jennifer!!!

Hi Christine and all you fabulous readers out there *waves* Thank you so much for having me today! My debut book, Hard Core, released this month so I’m very excited to be here! Thank you so much for sharing it with me!! 

In honor of my release I am offering a copy of my debut contemporary suspense, Hard Core, in either ebook format or signed print copy to one lucky commenter so please leave me a comment with your EMAIL and gift choice to be entered to win!!

This is a scene from Hard Core that is one of my favorites. The hero, a mercenary, Cristian Slade, fights his feelings for Alana every step of the way. But, she is just the woman to break past his walls 🙂 I hope you enjoy this little snippet!

Look, mister, you aren’t going anywhere until I clear you. What you do after that

is your business. Until then, you belong to me.”

 

Slade’s heart pounded. You belong to me. Why did those words affect him? He

belonged to no one. Alana’s hand burned like fire against his skin. He looked down to

where it rested over his heart, small and delicate against the muscles of his chest. Her

skin was soft, her fingers long, slender, feminine.

 

An image of her bathing, naked except for bra and panties, threw him where he

didn’t want to go. Watching her bathe by lantern light hadn’t been a hallucination. It was

too vivid, too clear. He remembered every inch of her silken skin, the way her narrow

waist curved into lean hips and long, shapely legs. His palms actually tingled as if they’d

touched her soft skin. Ridiculous. If he’d touched her, he’d sure as hell remember it.

 

Slade swallowed hard. Gave himself a mental shake. He’d been here before. It

never ended well. He didn’t need any more scars.


Thank you for having me today, Christine!! I just want to send out a big THANK YOU to all my readers out there! Without you I wouldn’t be here. My wish is to one day meet each and every one of you so I can personally thank you for your generosity and support! 
All my best, 
Jennifer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hard Core/Romantic Suspense

Blurb:

Tag: He takes lives. She saves them.

A supposedly hassle-free job for mercenary Cristian Slade becomes a mission of mercy when he saves a life instead of taking one. Slade’s new mission might be his most dangerous yet, because the danger is to his heart.

Tragedy has sent esteemed surgeon Alana O’Grady to a remote a remote Nicaraguan island where she immerses herself in the lives of a native American tribe, using her talents for goodwill instead of wealth and prestige. But life turns upside down when her work requires she protect a rugged mercenary who commands her attention when she’s awake and dominates her dreams while she sleeps.

Doctoring Cristian puts her entire tribe in danger from the man who’s hunting him. Is it her professional oath or her unprofessional attraction to him keeping her from sending him away to heal on his own? Alana’s fire warms Cristian’s heart, but he’s a hardened assassin and has no business falling for someone like her. Can they fight hard enough to keep what they might have together?

Author Bio:

Jennifer Lowery grew up reading romance novels in the back of her math book and on the bus to school, and never wanted to be anything but a writer.  Her summers were spent sitting at the kitchen table with her sisters spinning tales of romance and intrigue and always with a tall glass of ice tea at their side.

Today, Jennifer is living that dream and she couldn’t be happier to share her passion with her readers.  She loves everything there is about romance.  Her stories feature alpha heroes who meet their match with strong, independent heroines.  She believes that happily ever after is only the beginning of her stories. And the road to that happy ending is paved with action, adventure, and romance. As her characters find out when they face danger, overcome fears, and are forced to look deep within themselves to discover love.

Jennifer lives in Michigan with her husband and three children.  When she isn’t writing she enjoys reading and spending time with her family.
