FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT is here...Jace! Andre! Excerpts! Contest!

 

 

You asked for more Jace, Evan, and Andre. You got it! FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT is out today in the U.S! (UK readers, it will be coming your way Sept. 25th.)

Note: This book can standalone even if you haven't read Melt Into You. 

Here's the blurb and scroll down to read an excerpt and to find out about the contest:

The wait is over. They fell in love in Melt Into You, but that was only the beginning. Now New York Times bestselling author Roni Loren dials up the passion as three lovers reinvent the meaning of togetherness and find out if love is truly enough... 

Two dominant men, one beautiful woman. Jace Austin knows he doesn't have what you'd call a conventional relationship with Evan and Andre, but it works. Boy, does it work--until Evan starts acting strangely and Andre's ex-fiancée pops back into his life, unbalancing a perfectly happy threesome. Jace is forced to face the unthinkable: that the two people he cares most about in this world are in danger of slipping away from him.

So Jace plans a surprise getaway to a secluded mountain cabin for the three of them. And he knows exactly what he needs to do: give both his lovers a fantasy week they'll never forget. And the possibilities for pleasure are endless. But when they get snowed in and the heat between them reaches a fever pitch, secrets come out. And Evan has one that could change all their lives forever.

Buy it! Nook | Kindle | Kobo | iBooks | Google Play

What reviewers are saying:

"Whewboy! Yeah. Loren can bring some serious heat to the table." --Herding Cats & Burning Soup blog

"Crimony guys, you better bring some water since Forever Starts Tonight is beyond scorching. Like woh. There are some scenes between the three of them and also a holy smokes batman scene between Jace and Andre. Let's just say the pages were steaming up, and it wasn't just from the shower in the book." --Erica at The Book Cellar

"Holy s**t, RoniLoren. This shower scene in Forever Starts Tonight. I need a cold shower. Or maybe a fire extinguisher." -- Jennifer Blackwood

"OMG that shower scene was just .... Hawt" --Francesca at Under the Covers book blog

"I wouldn’t be me if I did not look for or point out any flaws in the story. As far as I can tell, my only problem with Forever Starts Tonight was that it was over." --Cocktails and Books

 

EXCERPT

Andre and Jace exchanged a look, then Jace pointed to the spot in front of the fireplace. “Naked. Now.”

She rubbed her lips together, silently celebrating her victory. “Yes, sir.”

While she undressed, Jace and Andre left the room, presumably to get whatever equipment they needed and to plan. She laid her clothes over the back of one of the armchairs and hurried to get next to the fire. The cabin was warm but the sudden loss of her sweater and jeans raised goose bumps on her skin. She knelt on the pillow and sighed with contentment as the heat from fire washed over her from behind. She’d felt so ill earlier on the plane, but now her body seemed to be cooperating with her again. After all the stress of the week, she couldn’t pick any better place to be than right here waiting for her two guys to do their dirty best to her.

And being tucked away in a cabin in the middle of all that sparkling snow heightened that feeling of being cocooned in their own world. Here they didn’t have to worry about anyone judging or giving them the side eye. Even at The Ranch some of the other subs gave her looks because she’d taken two sought-after doms off the market. She couldn’t help but feel those What’s so special about her? accusations drifting her way. But when she was with just the two of them, the whole world fell away, and no one could tell her what they had wasn’t right or good or beautiful. She so needed this right now.

She sat back on her calves and closed her eyes, letting herself slide into that quiet space submission could give her, where all she focused on was what they wanted from her. There she could retreat and tuck any lingering worries or issues into a box for a while and live in the moment, feel the experience. Her version of meditation.

They left her in the silence for a while, and she didn’t hear them when they returned because she’d settled so deeply into the calm. But she caught the scent of Jace’s cologne mixing in with the hickory smell of the fire and opened her eyes.

Jace and Andre were standing a few feet in front of her, arms crossed, looming. Jace smiled and stepped forward to take her chin in his hand. He tilted her face up and ran his thumb over her lips. “Look how gorgeous our girl is, Andre. We haven’t even touched her yet and she’s already looking at us with surrender eyes.”

“We picked a good one to kidnap.”

Her attention slid to Andre. If they were going to go with the kidnapping theme, she’d play the role to her fullest. “You said if I did what you told me, you’d let me go.”

Andre’s lips lifted at the corner. “Indeed, we did. Smart girl. Obeying will get you what you want.”

“Not that you have much choice anyway,” Jace added, his green eyes flickering orange in the firelight, making his expression look even more sinister. “There’s no one around for miles. And that snow is pretty heavy. You wouldn’t get far if you tried to run.”

“Y’all must be pretty desperate to get laid if you have to steal a woman to get someone in your bed.” She sent Jace a petulant look. “What’s wrong with you? Bad in the sack?”

He huffed a quiet laugh. Normally, she wasn’t one to be a bratty sub. But tonight she was down for a little game-playing. She wanted to lose herself in this. And Jace seemed pleased that she was getting into the role.

“Now that’s not a very nice thing to say,” Jace replied, his expression cooling from humored to that intimidating dominance. He grabbed her hair, wrapping the locks around his fist, and tugged. “Get up.”

She climbed to her feet, and Jace led her by the hair toward Andre. Some silent exchange passed between the two men, and Andre sat on the couch in front of her. His dark eyes tracked down her naked form with lewd interest, making her shiver. Evan loved how they could make her feel so cherished and precious day to day, but also how they could switch off that softness when they all craved a walk on the shadier side of the street. Andre, who could be as gentle and loving as any man she’d ever met, was staring at her like she was simply an object to slake his lust.

It so totally worked for her. Especially when he tugged off his shirt, revealing all that honed muscle and tawny skin, and those nipple rings she loved so much. He leaned back like a king awaiting his servant, spreading his arms across the back of the couch in an impressive wingspan.

“Dre, let’s show her what happens to captives who talk back.”

Reader Quirks: Are You a Rereader?

Reading

"Reading" by Pedro Ribeiro Simoes (flickr cc)

I haven't been blogging much because I'm in the throes of book deadline hell, but I thought I'd start doing a few micro-posts about our quirks as readers. I know everyone has their different style and preferences, and that always fascinates me.

So I'd love to hear how you approach these different topics. First up, rereading.

I absolutely love when people tell me they've read my series multiple times. Or that they're going to go back to reread all the books in preparation for the next one. That is so flattering and always puts a smile on my face.

But I also have trouble relating because I am SO not a rereader. I honestly can't think of any book that I've read more than once. I've gone back and read passages from some favorite books--usually to remind myself about something or to study something about the writing. But even my favorite favorites don't get reread. And I'm not sure why. I'm sure I would enjoy rereading them. I can think of ones I'd like to reread. And I'm definitely one to rewatch favorite movies/TV shows (over and over and over).

But I think what might stop me from rereading books is that I always have a towering TBR pile. It's hard to justify reading something I've already read instead of tackling ALL THE NEW SHINY STORIES. 

On my Push Your Boundaries Reading Challenge that I'm doing this year, I did include a "reread from childhood" on the list, so I guess I will tackle a reread soon. Haven't decided which one yet though.

So, you tell me, are you a rereader? If so, what makes you read a book again? What's your record for how many times you've read a particular book? If you're not a rereader, why do you think that is? 

I'm really interested in what you have to say, so don't be shy, comment! : )

 

**And just a reminder, FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT (the Jace, Evan, Andre novella) is out in one week! Pre-order now for $2.99 and get it on your e-reader the moment it releases! Nook | Kindle | Kobo | Apple/iTunes | Google Play

Your Invitation to Eden Is Here - Enjoy Your Stay (And Win Stuff!)

 

Today is the official release day for the August Invitation to Eden releases, including mine, Blurring the Lines!

Check out all three because each give something a little different. Mari Carr is giving you sexy suspense, Steena Holmes is giving you sweet contemporary, and I'm giving you steamy contemporary with a paranormal twist.

Also, we've got prizes! Don't miss out on the huge contest where you can win one of three End of Summer prize packs. (Enter below.)

 

 

Blurring the Lines by Roni Loren

A year has passed since Gretchen lost her fiancé, but she still can’t sleep. Or paint. And her new home in New Orleans is either haunted or she’s finally going crazy.
Her bet is on the latter.

So when her best friend, Burke, offers to sweep her away to a private luxury island for a break, she can’t say no. Maybe if she can be someone else for a few days, the ghosts of the past will quiet. At least for a little while.

Burke knows what she’s going through. She lost her fiancé, but he lost family. He gets her in a way no else can. But lately she’s noticing things she shouldn’t about her former fiancé’s younger brother—his sexy smirk, that spicy Cajun accent, and the way he looks at her when he thinks she’s not paying attention. A week alone with him? Dangerous. If she blurs the lines between them, she could ruin the only friendship that means anything to her. She could ruin it all.

But the island of Eden has its own agenda. The island knows what you need. That’s what the invitation says. She just never imagines it will grant her the one wish that could destroy them both.

Rough Draft by Mari Carr (Big Easy, Book 4)

Capture, bondage and fantasies fulfilled. It’s all fun and games until someone gets killed.

 Bestselling crime novelist Jett Lewis is stumbling over a wicked case of writer’s block, his fast-flowing words having run dry. His publisher’s screaming “deadline”, the fans are ready to riot, and Jett just wants to disappear. His friend Carissa suggests he get away, clear his head…get laid. And she has just the ticket. Literally. Two passes to Eden, an exclusive island paradise. Recently sans girlfriend, Jett convinces Carissa to go with him, and the resort is more than either of them bargained for—especially when the simple beach trip turns to murder. Thrust into a plot sinister enough to rival Jett’s books, the couple embarks on a search for the killer. The most shocking revelation of all might be their mutual attraction…and how much Jett and Carissa love working undercover.

Return to Sender by Steena Holmes (Return to Sender trilogy, Book 1)

Lauren Summers is the stable sister, the one who runs the family company while her sisters take off and travel the world. One weekend a year she hides herself away and mourns a love she lost six years ago. That weekend is now, except she’s being whisked away to a mysterious island despite her protests. After being pampered with luxury, massages and the best chocolate a girl could taste, she starts to realize that its time she left the past behind and moved forward with life, and maybe with love. What she doesn’t know, is that someone from her past has other ideas…

COVER REVEAL: Melt Into You (the redesign!)

I revealed the new cover for CRASH INTO YOU last week. Now it's time for MELT INTO YOU!

Here it is!

 

 

I'm kind of in love--especially because there are three ice cubes and it's a menage story (obvious metaphors FTW!). The couple on the original cover didn't depict that aspect of the story, so it's nice to have that this time around. :-) 

So what do you think?

*New covers will be available in October from what I understand.
