It's A Gem of A Hook! #SevenSinSisters on #MFRWhooks

Welcome to another week of Book Hooks, the weekly meme hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog. Here's a chance each week for readers to get hooked on a new book! Authors share a short excerpt from their books. If you enjoy the sample, consider purchasing the full book through their buy link.

TODAY I'm sharing an excerpt from Holiday Gem, book three in the Seven Sin Sisters series.

Seven sisters are entwined in a legacy, one originating back from the time of the Italian Wars in the 1500s. One by one, they will find their mates from the immortal Valendite Breeds and secure their place in history.

Gemma has spent her adult life consumed with researching the Valendite Breed history, constantly greedy for knowledge about their race. Until she meets Seamus and she's no longer able to hide in her world of books and theory. Now is her time to live.

Seamus has found his gem and wants nothing more than to treasure her but his best friend is missing and he needs to locate him. Torn between his mate and his brother-in-arms, Seamus may be forced to choose one over the other. Will he sacrifice a lifelong friendship for the love of his life?

"Ms. Beck serves up a tasty holiday morsel with the third in her Sin Sisters series. Slightly shorter but no less delightful, this Christmastime story embodies the spirit of giving without being so Christmassy that it can only be read in December! Standing on solid ground with this very enjoyable paranormal romance (super charged with erotic elements), Holiday Gem delivers the greedy little romance between scholarly Gemma and brawny Seamus." - Jenn, Guilty Indulgence Review Site, 4 Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries

Gemma brushed her hands along the contours of his back as Seamus lay on top of her. His muscles rippled with raw power as he held himself just above her. Each muscle tightened slightly as she stroked over it. Seamus exuded a sexy strength; the vibrations emanating from him flared Gemma’s desire until a glowing aura of light surrounded them.

“My powers,” she said with awe as she looked around them. Gemma felt small as she contemplated her powers and moved her arms around Seamus, only to realize they didn’t meet in the back. He was massive compared to her smaller frame. He was power and she felt a frisson of safe refuge in his arms. He would protect her.

Don't wait. Get Hooked!

BOOKS Authors READ: #MFRWauthor @AuthorTinaGayle

It's another BOOKS authors READ post on ROMANCE BECKONS! This is when I'll be asking some of my author friends to share about books they enjoy reading. At least twice each month, you can get some great ideas for books you might also enjoy. I hope you'll keep coming back to talk to each of the authors I've invited. They're a great group.

Today, I'm welcoming author Tina Gayle.
Tina Gayle was born in Texas, the place of her heart and where most of her family still lives. The youngest of four daughters, she grew up a dreamer. She worked for years in the business world doing a variety of accounting jobs. Then when her two sons were little, Tina decided to go back to school to get a degree in MIS. She only used this degree a few years before deciding to follow her passion for writing romance.

As romance author, she has published a number of contemporary romances. Her first being Pregnancy Plan, followed by a paranormal story called Mating Rituals. Deciding to stick to her contemporary romance roots, she then published two more books Baby Decision and Youthful Temptations.

Hi Paloma. So excited to be on your blog today, I love talking about books. My love affair with them started when I was in my teens and I’m still thrilled with reading.

Q. Most authors loved to read at a young age. What was your favorite book as a child?
A. Believe it or not, A Touchdown for Tommy by Matt Christopher.  I grew up in Texas and football was something I watched with my father. The story was one of the first books that drew me in and hooked me on the emotions that a reader can experience from a great read.

Q. What book did you read that inspired you to be an author?
A. I can’t remember just one. I used to read the love swept books and Harlequin stories. I would spend hours in my room, reading and falling in love. The stories inspired me to write stories in my head. I didn’t even consider being an author until after I graduated from college. Then because of a move my family made, I decide to quit and spend all my time with my children and with the stories in my head.

Q. What was the last book you read just for fun?
A. Big Bad Wolf by Christine Warren. This is a series about others who live in New York City. I’ve read a several in the series and have enjoyed each of them.

Q. What upcoming release are you most looking forward to?
A. Funny, how authors love their latest release. I just released the second book in Family Tree series. Fallen Leaves continues the story of Amber Harrison adventure as the keeper of the Winston family spirits. She faces the new challenge of getting her great, great, great, great, grandmother to let go of being a ghost and cross over to heaven.

And now for the giveaway – I would love everyone to read my book and you can read the 1st chapter of my books on my website. For one lucky person though, I’m offering a copy of Fallen Leaves.

Fallen Leaves BLURB
As autumn comes to the Winston estate in Ohio, Amber Harrison learns further lessons in her new position as keeper for the spirits and ghosts who haunt the estate--and further lessons in love, too. She and her love, Carter Miller, grapple with the fears and passions of new love, while caught up in the storm of ancient family drama.

This is the second book in the unfolding saga of the psychics and talents associated with the Winston estate, a sheltered place where past, present, and future are woven into a single dramatic tapestry of love and desire.

Thanks so much, Paloma for letting me be on your blog today.
Best of luck to everyone, Tina.

Madden is one of the strongest of the Valendite Breed, a group of near-immortal men originating from the Italian Wars in the 1500s.
