Blurb/Counterblurb: Frustration

After a long, sad hiatus, welcome to today’s edition of Blurb/Counterblurb featuring Kimberly Nash and a delicious Harlequin Presents!

frustrationMaria’s frustrated…

Everyone else has a guardian angel on their shoulder – I get a cheap-ass Dutch souvenir doll. Why a Dutch doll? I’m Italian, dammit!!

And now she’s getting in between me and my new amore, Stefano. He’s hot, he’s got a full head of hair, and has a kick-ass Swiss watch… and she still doesn’t approve? She has no taste in fashion OR men, and she thinks she can guide me?

Anna’s frustrated…

Other angels get easy gigs guarding kids, wearing gorgeous filmy robes… I get the Jersey Shore mafia princess and a Dutch bonnet. I should complain to the angel PTBs.

Honestly, she’s a jerk magnet, and she can’t see past the surface of this guy. He’s trouble. Real trouble. I mean, the man has a watch that could tase an elephant at 50 paces – why is it so close to her ear? And why is he macking on her in a blood-coloured room? I think I should be worried…

And Stefano is frustrated…and kind of freaked out!

Why am I seeing this creepy maledetta doll everywhere? And I think my watch is broken… cazzo!

Can this trio work out their frustration so everyone’s happy?

Pet the Pretty!

A while back, I received the rights back for my first published novel, a fantasy romance called A Spell for Susannah. It took me this long to get ready to do something with them, but what a something it is! Check out this pretty!

ASpellforSusannah600

The story is based on the 12 Dancing Princesses, and if I could have put the idea in my head onto paper, it would have been a lot like this. I mean, she’s dancing sort of! And it looks like there’s magic around her and stuff.

For the prequel, a stand-alone short story about Susannah’s parents, the talented artist worked with the same background so you can tell they are connected. Pretty X2.

Wintertide600If you’re a writer looking for a good cover artist, these were done by Amanda Matthews at AM Design Studio. She’s so good that these were PREMADES.

NOW I need to get that thing re-edited and reformatted! It’s on the list. Right after take Grandma to the eyedoctor, finish the kid’s Halloween costumes, get rid of whatever this germ in plaguing me and making me sound like a throat monster, finish my WiP for the Maelstrom series (IT’S SO CLOSE), find my winter clothes (I’M ACTUALLY COLD), and… I’m sure there was more shit, but I forgot. I blame the germ.

Sex, Booze and Rock and Roll!

Now re-appearing from the depths of history…

Okay, fine, from a few years ago.

Natalie Damschroder, Megan Hart and I wrote interconnected stories about several ladies who have second chance at the night of a lifetime — back stage passes after a concert from their favorite rock band, Blue Silver.

When they were teenagers, it didn’t work out. But now that they’re adults of consenting age…and their teen dream band goes on a reunion tour…everything will be different this time.

Everything.

Hope you like sex, booze and rock and roll, because we sure wrote you some!

Sincerely,

Jody (and Natalie and Megan, even though they don’t know I’m posting this!)

Blurb/Counterblurb: Tuesday’s Jillaroo

jillaroo

By Darcy Flynn

Shirley Template has always hated her curly hair. Suffering snickering taunts by her golden, straight-haired siblings, enduring hushed conversations from aunts and uncles at family reunions slowly, but surely, took its hair-raising toll, until the final blow when she overheard her mother confess to her aunt that she was adopted. Oh, the years of hair straightening products and harsh chemical applications and for what? Losing all hope of ever having corn-silk tresses, Shirley sets out to find the real purpose for her corkscrew curls.

Australian Hereford Cattle Baron, Herb Ford, has had it with the incompetent young men hired to help with the annual Hereford cattle drive. The straight–haired dandies only ever thought of one thing…sheep. On the brink of losing his family station, he realizes he needs the intervention of the curly locks of a Jillaroo Hereford Cattle Whisperer! Aborigine folklore believed the only person qualified to guide the Herefords across the deserts of Australia had to come from the Jillaroo Whisperer line.

When Herb meets spunky Shirley Template and sees her adorable tightly woven curls, his heart skips a beat. Could the legend be true? Can this mesmerizing “curly locks” keep his cattle business from failing?

5 Stars – Australian Progressive Cattle Magazine “…a must read for anyone who raises Herefords.”

4 Stars – Aussy Cattle Times “You’ll love the bantering wit and the down under slang between Herb and Shirley…”

5 Stars – Raising Cattle in your Backyard “A must read for every cow lover.”

Blurb/Counterblurb: The Devil’s Arms

devilsarms

By Isabella Norse (http://isabellanorse.com/)
Note: Ms. Norse claims to “love writing blurbs” so contact her if you want help. She did not say she “loved writing synopses”, though.

Victoria Nesbitt loved a man in an apron – every chance she got. The butcher. The baker. The candlestick maker. But none of them could erase her memories of Devin Diablo, the artist that stole her heart, but wanted her soul.

Tall, dark, and demonic, Devin Diablo’s paintings of Victoria’s big breasts gave him his big break as an artist. Now, surrounded by art groupies, he could have any woman that he wanted, so why did he long for the one that he couldn’t have?

devilsarms2

Their worlds collide when Devin’s newest show arrives at Victoria’s gallery. Will Victoria be able to cut the apron strings once and for all or can she finally find love in the devil’s arms?

Blurb/Counterblurb: The Cruel Flame

cruelflameBy Petra Grayson (http://theoryoflietofine.blogspot.com/)

She’s done everything she can to hide the secret that she is the nephew’s, girlfriend’s, sister’s former roommate to the missing Princess Anastasia and her jewelry is a cheap knockoff, but the red sun is an omen that her days are numbered. When her new hair stylist dyes her hair the same color as the sky, she knows it’s time to confess her sins, but then she meets the man of her dreams.

For his part, Dimitri Karmikova is trying to turn over a new leaf: settle down, start a family and enjoy his middle part. But as a former international thief, finding a girl who can understand the need for treasures to compensate for his lack of virility has been a crushing burden. He falls fast and hard for Alexandra and her extravagant jewelry. But when she finds evidence that he’s been spanking his teeny monkey in his car, she suspects the cruelty of love misplaced and feels guilty for allowing Dimitri into the inner sanctum of her decolletage. She flees to the sanctuary of her family’s basilica before he can uncover her dark secret.

When Dimitri comes after her, all bets are off. He’s ready to fight for her love, and the only way to do that is to prove once and for all that he’s capable of orgasming when she wears gold-plated costume jewelry. He’s not some culture snob who can only get it up for pure gold, even if he’s never managed it before.

It would be his biggest heist yet, but it’s the only way to satisfy…the cruel flame.

Blurb/Counterblurb: Loving

lovingBy Laura Curtis (http://www.laurakcurtis.com/)

The sins of the daughters…

After Brad’s wife dies, his daughter Kate can’t seem to stay out of trouble. The accusations that she’s been engaging in lewd behavior with the other girls at her Catholic school are the final straw—he quits his job in the big city and moves them both to the small town of Virgin Falls.

Jenny has been ostracized in Virgin Falls most of her life. A grade school teacher, she is famous for having had a child out of wedlock. But she can’t leave her ailing mother, so she stays, enduring the ridicule of the townspeople and assuming she will never find love.

lovingtree

But Brad doesn’t care about Jenny’s past. And their daughters get along well together. Within months, they have announced their engagement and are looking forward to a life together. But strange occurrences haunt them, threatening to cut their family tree off at the roots. No sooner did they move in together than strange, snakelike creatures find their way into the girls’ bedrooms. They start small, but soon an entire, twisted colony of evil is forcing its way through their home.

For the kind of loving their daughters share is forbidden by the standards of Virgin Falls…and the 1970s fashions it embraces.
