Blog Tour: ENTICED by J.A. Belfield

Welcome to my stop on the Enticed Blog tour!  If you've been following me a while, then you know how much I adore a certain character from Ms. Belfield's Holloway Pack series, and I'm excited to be a part of his birthday celebration!  After all, I *was* the object of his affection for a short time.

It's true, I'm totally telling the truth on this.

And then Ms. Belfield decided to change my name back to Shelley in the final draft and ... well.  Our affair ended.  But it was beautiful.  Beautiful and perfect and didn't need editing.  So when you read your copy of Enticed, simply replace 'Shelley' with 'Keri' and all will be right again.  Hehe

Okay, now that we've cleared that up, let's get this party started!

Check out the Rafflecopter below for a sweet prize Ms. Belfield is giving away in honor of Ethan's birthday.  You can grab a copy of Enticed for FREE.  That's right.  Smexy time with Ethan for the same amount of money it will cost you to suck in a deep breath when you begin to pant while reading this little gem.

Why wouldn't you grab some of that??

Book info:

Title: Enticed: A Holloway Pack Mini

Blurb:

Happy Birthday to Ethan.

Or is it?

Gifts aside, Ethan’s morning hasn’t been anything to write home about. Sure, life is good, the pack is staying out of trouble, he finally has a mate who boils his blood … in a good way.

Except Shelley hasn’t called. Hasn’t come by. Didn’t even bother to join her son and his girlfriend for Ethan’s annual I’m-a-year-older breakfast.

What Ethan doesn’t know is that Shelley has plans. Plans that have been in progress for weeks. Ones that Ethan will never see coming, and that she’s banked on him not knowing a thing about.

She can only hope her secrecy doesn’t force his inner wolf to the surface—at least, not too early.

*Can be read as a standalone.

Excerpt

Catching sugary wafts of sweetness, I crossed the room to the kitchen doorframe, leaning against it as I peered in. Oak doors shuttered the cabinets, and on the countertop sat a large white box with its lid not quite connected, from where I suspected the scents drifted out. Stretching onto my tiptoes, I peeked over the rim of the box through the sliver of space, and spotted the edges of white fondant icing.

I smiled like a moron. “You made me a cake, Shel?”

“Technically, I bought you a cake, but we can pretend otherwise,” she said from the bedroom. “But that’s not your gift.”

I turned, and I could’ve sworn my mouth opened in slow motion as I drew my hands from my pockets. My eyebrows probably would’ve creaked, if they had sound effects to accompany their upward rise.

Leaning into her bedroom doorframe and glancing up at me through lowered lashes, Shelley had donned some lacy getup—a Basque, all laced up along the front with a satiny thread, which her naturally plump breasts pretty much danced atop of. Beneath that, tiny, tiny knickers barely covered her groin V. Everything in a warm raspberry—including the suspender straps, hanging downward and clipped to stockings of chocolate brown that shimmered with the slightest move of her legs.

The entire getup, from her hair to toes, matched, making her look fucking edible.

“Damn, Shelley,” I muttered—about all I could manage. The room seemed too hot all of a sudden.

 

Giveaway Time!

Prize: 1 Signed Print Copy of ENTICED for your reading pleasure (and it will bring pleasure)

1 ENTICED 6×4 Coverart Print for your viewing pleasure (because Ethan is work viewing)

1 Thornton’s Viennese Truffle Bar to enjoy whilst you devour Ethan (as you will want to devour him)

SOUL ENSLAVED (Sons of Wrath, #3)

By: Keri Lake

Release Date: December 5, 2014

Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance

ISBN: 978-0-9848517-7-5

BLURB:

Imprisonment in Obsidius. Enslavement to a soul-sucking succubus. A reproductive cycle that’d send a sex fiend running into the arms of celibacy.

Given the choice, most demons would opt for death.

Gavin, eldest son of Wrath, has been sentenced to all three.

When the succubus decides its time to collect, though, he fears his nightmares have only just begun.

And Sabelle’s timing couldn’t be worse.

With a bad case of uncontrollable lust, thanks to his Savidon, the last thing Gavin wants is a vengeful succubus stoking his darkest desires, but debts must be paid—he just didn’t bank on enjoying his punishment so much.

Because the swinging bachelor may have found his perfect mate in the sexy seductress.

However, just as things seem to be looking up, past sins resurface, plunging the two into a deadly game of power and deception. As their worst fears merge into one unexpected threat, Gavin is determined to protect Sabelle and win her freedom.

At any cost.

Sons Of Wrath Contest!!

I mentioned a while back that for the release of Soul Enslaved, I’m not planning to do a major blog tour. This time, I’ve got something else in mind.   Something I hope will be a whole lotta fun!!

I WILL be doing a book blast with a rafflecopter giveaway and I’d LOVE your help spreading the word for a couple reasons:

  1. Soul Enslaved will be 99 cents for a VERY VERY limited time.  I mean like … just a couple of days, limited.

BUT!  That brings me to reason #2:

  1. I’m donating a percent of sales for Soul Enslaved to TWO charities that help neglected or abused kids stay off the streets of Detroit and the metro area.

I’ll tell you more about this in a future post.  But the more you help me spread the word, the greater the donation I can make!

In addition to the book blast …

When I first wrote Soul Avenged, aside from friends and family who'd read the book, I didn't have much of a following at all.  No one knew the Sons of Wrath and I found that, not only was I limited to a handful of PNR blogs to help me get the book out there, but of those, only a few were willing to read a book as thick as Soul Avenged.  Oh man, I thought I'd screwed up royally by writing such a long story.  But then, something REALLY unexpected happened.  Bloggers started signing up to join the tour.  Even though they had NO IDEA who I was as an author or who my characters were, they took a chance and read the book.

Then Soul Resurrected was written and more bloggers joined the tour.  Through (and including) them, I met some pretty amazing readers.

All of you have been instrumental in helping me get my books out there.  You take the time to read my books, post your reviews, shout about my crazy stories – you took a chance on me and I want to give back.

So I’m going to run a little contest during the book blast …

Every writer dreams of seeing a book hit the big screen.  I’ve always wondered how others see my characters. Therefore, I’m asking bloggers to cast the Sons of Wrath and I’m going to have YOU vote for the best collection of sexy mancandy!

The winning blog will get $50 Amazon gift card!  Readers get to enter the rafflecopter for a chance to win some awesome prizes!

Win win win!

The blogger picks are coming in and I L.O.V.E. the sexy faces they’re matching with each of these guys.

Damn they’re HAWT.  Think it's time to update my Eye Candy Pinterest board.

If you know of a blogger who loves PNR and might wanna get in on this, please don’t hesitate to share this post!

If you ARE a blogger and wanna get in on this, email me keri (at) kerilake.com.

In the meantime, I’ve been getting feedback from betas for Soul Enslaved and it’s been humbling.  I’ve said before, I have good days and bad days when it comes to my writing.  The responses have definitely kept me in a very positive and upbeat state of mind and I cannot wait to share this story with you!

Here are just a few of the beta comments:

"Your storytelling wraps me up & I forget to THINK beyond enjoyment."

“Do you have any idea how fucking awesome you are?”

Good Gawd, woman! Done. And...and...and...Argh! What have you done to me? Again.”

You are messing with my mind in all the best ways.”

I know this book will be tidied up and I'm a bit sad to hear that because I enjoyed so many scenes (particularly in the latter quarter of the book).”

I’ll be giving another update soon so stay tuned!!
