Tight Spiral by @Gill1Michael #Sports #Romance #Suspense #Superbowl #football

 

The minute she had sat down at the table that day in Wembley, he'd felt a connection that seemed to develop instantaneously between the two of them. He had wanted her ever since...
 
Inspired by Lee Childs and Nicolas Sparks, Tight Spiral is a fast-paced tale of romance and suspense. Written by former American Football Coach, Michael J Gill, this is the story of two people who fall in love despite the obstacles and wrongful assumptions in their path.
 
The novel follows Harry Smith, the first British quarterback in American college football who had everything going him: a star future, and a pretty Texan girl on his arm. But when "Prince Harry" collides with fate in a near-fatal accident, everything unravels.
 
Amy Carrington is a sports reporter in Leeds, England, who'd much rather report on life and fashion. But her boss has a brand new job for her covering the rise of American football in Britain that might just skyrocket her career and change her life.
 
When Harry emerges from his coma with no interest in football, can Amy bring him back to life and help him win the biggest game of his career?

Excerpt  PG 13

What a sight! Amy had never seen exercise drills like this. She asked one of the coaches what was going on.
“Calisthenics,” he replied. She would check that word on Google later.
A coach shouted, “Jumping jacks!” and blew his whistle. She watched in amazement at 40 players all in their full gridiron uniforms doing a routine that looked more suited to dance, all of them together in unison.
The coach yelled the next exercise in their routine was “ups and downs”. Amy was trying to recall if she had ever seen anything like this one. They would go down on the ground, jump back up, now their bodies frozen like a deer in the headlights. The only part of the body moving was their legs and feet. Feet moving fast like a tap dancer. She moved around the back of the players, ready to take interesting shots with her Canon camera from a variety of angles. This would be great for the blog.
Suddenly, she noticed a player wearing the #12 jersey: Harry Smith. His feet moved fast on the spot. Now what a bloody gorgeous sight, his ass in those tight pants, she thought playfully.
Enough of all this, it’s making me exhausted just watching them, she thought after 30 minutes of snapping shots and taking notes.

Book Excerpt

Ty muffled a groan. Katy’s crooning just about did him in right there. He wasn’t sure how Tiger held out, because if she used those words on him in that husky, sexy tone… he wrenched open the back door and dumped the groceries on the floor. A long, deep sigh later he closed the door, placed his hands on Katy’s waist and gently moved her aside.

“Here, I’ll get her.” He climbed into the four-by-four and scooped the recalcitrant kitten into his hand. “Hey there, Tiger, good job protecting the truck. Come say hi to the pretty lady, and no scratching.”

He nuzzled his nose into its soft, furry neck and then passed her down to Katy’s waiting hands, their fingers tangling for a too brief moment.

“Hello, beautiful. What are you doing with this guy, huh?” She burrowed her face right into the same spot he had and everything inside him tightened painfully. She was killing him here.

“You find that hard to believe, right?” he grumbled.

She glanced up, her mossy green eyes soft with affection. “What?”

His fingers wrapped around the steering wheel before he did what he craved. Bury his hands in that silken waterfall of hair, drag her close, and see if her neck was half as soft as the cat’s. “That anyone would want to stay with me of their own volition?”

Katy frowned. “What are you talking about? I was teasing, Ty. Don’t make this into something it’s not.”

Words to live by.

HIS TO PROTECT (Black Hills Wolves Book 63) by @ParisBrandon #Giveaway #Sweepstakes



A resentful pack, a suspicious alpha and a looming threat…
After ten long years, desperation has forced Luna Sinclair back to Los Lobos, but nothing in her experience has prepared her for the heat that Pack Protector Gunnar Redmond unleashes. Her wolf is clawing to break free and run straight for the hulking beast; but what wolf in his right mind would want to be tied to her family tree? 
Not everyone is happy about welcoming the daughter of one of the old alpha’s henchmen home.
Old wounds and secrets are exposed and, to make matters worse, Drew Tao, the new alpha, has reason to suspect she might have revealed the pack’s most closely guarded secret when she escaped the crazed survivalist who had been keeping her prisoner. 
None of that matters to Gunnar.
He’s known Luna was his mate since finding her naked and shivering on pack land, and he’ll do anything to keep her. With their wolves clawing to mate and danger closing in, anyone who wants to hurt her will have to go through him first.


A member of Romance Writers of America and published since 2009, Paris writes contemporary, paranormal, erotic and historical romance, throwing a little mystery and suspense in for good measure. She considers herself a hybrid author. Currently published with Decadent Publishing and self-publishing her own titles, she likes nothing better than a story that contains a little mystery and a lot of romance. 

When not dreaming up stories featuring heroes who aren’t intimidated by strong heroines, she can be found haunting antique and thrift stores for unique finds, or searching for heirloom seeds for yet another new flower garden.

Excerpt  PG 13:

Gunnar Redmond’s blood still raced from his morning run, and the female’s musky scent hit him doubly hard. The haggard white wolf had been running in a straight line since she’d hit the perimeter a few minutes ago. Nothing ran that hard unless something chased it, and he didn’t see or smell anything following her. Too soon to call a warning for something he could probably handle himself, the pack protector kept well behind his quarry. The third time she stumbled, his wolf reached for her, nearly stopping him in his tracks.
The urge to catch her before she fell surprised him. He breathed in her scent once more, finding her human nature had become much stronger and stank of a fear so fierce it permeated the crisp autumn air. She’d transformed. The scent grew stronger. His quarry had stopped, perhaps to get her bearings.
Every wolf in Los Lobos knew the location of the pack land boundaries.
She was obviously lost and confused.
Downwind and hidden by a small stand of trees, Gunnar crouched on the crest of a small hill. Naked and filthy, twigs and leaves riddled her tangled mess of dark hair that reached past her shoulders. Mud streaked her bare arms and legs. Her thin flanks trembled as she rubbed her hands up and down her arms and looked around. She might not be very tall, but her obvious curves left no doubt she was all woman.
His wolf whined.
 If he waited any longer, his wolf was going to behave inappropriately. Knocking her down so he could clean her and show his obvious interest probably wouldn’t win him any points. He stood and unbuttoned his shirt as he walked down the short incline.
The wind shifted, and she lifted her nose, turned, and froze. Her dark eyes widened, and he scented the fear she tried to hide. His size intimidated most, but her gaze had locked on his fingers, still working his shirt buttons free, and it occurred to him what the situation must look like.
Nice going, dumbass.
He let his arms drop and sighed. “Did you know you were trespassing?”
Her shoulders slumped. She stared at him a moment, and her mouth worked in a silent effort that seemed to frustrate her. Finally, her words tumbled like so much static from a radio. “Am I in Los Lobos?”
Gunnar nodded, and a shaky smile quirked one corner of her mouth.
“My name is Luna Sinclair, and I beg sanctuary.”
