HomeToYoueBook

At twenty-six, Katie McGregor has hit rock bottom. She’s done reckless things a good girl like her never thought she’d do. Like hiring a private investigator to spy on her sleazy boyfriend, walking out on her job without notice, and driving all night back to the one man who’d never left her thoughts.

Jake Johnson. The boy next door. The one whose glance always made her pulse race, whose touch made her knees weak — and whose words broke her heart.

Three years ago, both reeling from the death of her brother and Jake’s best friend, they’d moved apart and retreated into their careers. Now, Jake has it all, and Katie has… nothing but memories.

Katie is thrilled when Jake welcomes her into his home with open arms and the same sexy smile. But is he the same jock who didn’t do relationships and treated her like a little sister? And with so much between them, how can they overcome the hurts from the past to ignite a love that perhaps has smoldered all along?

I’m so excited to finally share Blind Love with you!!

 

BlindLoveCover

Title: Blind Love

Author: Kishan paul

Release Date: June 2, 2015

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Samhain Publishing

She doesn’t need a hero. But a sexy Marine…that’ll work.

Though Lauren Baxter’s world is a blurry mess of colors, she has no tolerance for pity. With the help of her guide dog, Jack Sparrow, she’s built a good life for herself. She has everything she wants: her PhD, a thriving counseling practice and her independence.

When she meets her new neighbor, the man’s warm Texas accent and clean male scent weaken her knees. Her attraction to the former Marine is mutual and, unfortunately, a complication she doesn’t need.

Gabriel Briggs carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He has his reasons for indulging only in short-term flings, but the feisty, green-eyed Lauren makes him want to forget every one.

In a rare moment of fragility, Lauren winds up in Gabe’s arms. One night together can’t break their self-imposed rules, right? But when a woman from Gabe’s past is murdered, the reasons he should have stayed away become painfully clear, threatening innocent lives he may not be able to save—especially Lauren’s.

Product Warnings
Contains a blind therapist who doesn’t consider herself impaired; a meddling, erotic-novel-writing best friend; a hot ex-Marine with a shady past; and a loyal guide dog that howls “I love you” and is probably the sanest one of the bunch.

Love Least Expected – Kishan Paul :)

LLE_240px

Taking-The-Plunge_Slider_1600-745px
Since graduating high school, Eve Cambridge has dropped ten dress sizes, became an RN, and dumped her jerk of a boyfriend – all on her own. So when her high school crush shows up in her life, she does what any normal self-reliant woman would do — pepper spray him.

Since inheriting the family plumbing business, Peter Russo has tried to make the best of a career he never planned for. He’s made his share of mistakes, but he’s worked hard to learn from them. Now that he’s run into Eve, he’s not so sure he isn’t making another one. After all, she did almost blind him.

When logic and emotion don’t agree, which path should they follow?

Praise for Kishan Paul:

 Taking the Plunge by Kishan Paul….Eve Cambridge had a difficult childhood, always being made fun of in school. Then one day the boy of her dreams comes to her aid. Fast forward, Eve is now an RN and just dumped her jerk of a boyfriend. When she runs into the boy she once had crush on from her HS years, is now a tall, sexy handsome man now. Will Eve take a chance and try to find love with the sexy plumber? This was the fist story by this author I’ve ever read and she truly did a wonderful job and can’t wait to read the rest of this great love story. — Vettech

“Taking the Plunge by Kishan Paul – This story WOWed me. I was drawn into the story and it brought back some bad and good memories. I was able to relate to Eve, Christian, and Pete on so many levels. Eve has a heart of gold even with being protective of her heart and those she holds dear. Christian is very strong even though he doesn’t see it himself. Pete is funny, cocky, and loving even through all that he has been through. Kishan Paul really made this story pop out at me and hold me every step of the way. Can’t wait to read more of these characters.” — Bobbie Kinion

“If I thought Love’s Not Viral was something I could relate to, Taking the Plunge is the second half of my life. This is a must read for many women who feel they are not good enough and struggle to find a place to fit in. What she went though with her brother is something I had to struggle with too. I give this book five bloody hearts and a high five to Kishan Paul.”  — Dark Side of Romance

This is a story about realistic characters that have flaws, wear sweatpants, and burn dinner. While it is sad that the characters had to endure a sad past, seeing Pete and Eve overcome their issues is inspirational and perfect for a feel-good story. Taking the Plunge has that rare perfect blend of humor, emotion, and sexiness. It’s a perfect read to lift your spirits.” — Kelly Lincoln

Kishan Paul creates sizzling sexual tension while building a relationship between two conflicted souls. It’s funny, touching, and REAL all at the same time. Once you turn the final page, you’ll definitely want more after reading this short story!”— Heather Rawlings

 

Taking the Plunge is lighthearted and funny with a touch of spice. Kishan will leave you wanting more.”– Jena Baxter, author of Reflections

 

“How this author is able to hook you from the start and have you craving more from page one is amazing. By the time you’re done reading this short, you’ll feel like you’ve read a novel, seriously, she’s that good.” — Kristen Sanchez

TAKING THE PLUNGE EXCERPT

Pete sat on the toilet and wiped his face with the towel she handed him. He cleared his sore throat. “Thank you,”

Evie grabbed his towel and dried her hands. “For what? Almost blinding you?”

He eyed the strands of her hair hanging in loose curls against her tanned cheeks and itched to tuck them behind her ears. But after the last twenty minutes of misery, thought better of it.

As if reading his thoughts, her cheeks flushed. She pushed the loose locks out of her face and stared at her toes. Damn she looked cute.

I’m sorry I sprayed you.”

Pete chuckled. “I showed up unannounced, waving a baseball bat. I think I kind of deserved it.”

When Evie smiled, something fluttered in his stomach.

She bit her lip, obviously to keep from laughing. “Nice bat, by the way.”

How the hell had he not met her until now?

Before he got the chance to tell her just how nice his bat was, his butt started vibrating.

Pete reached into his back pocket, pulled out the cell and looked at the screen. “Your uncle.”

Her eyes widened. “Crap. He thinks I already left. Don’t tell him I’m here.” She turned and headed for the hall.

Hold up.” Pete grabbed her arm with one hand while hitting the ignore button on the cell with the other. “Have dinner with me and I won’t.” He decided to play his cards and omit the part about how her uncle already knew she was still at the house.

She stared at the wrist he currently possessed. “You know, I still have the pepper spray.”

The cell buzzed a second time. Pete shrugged and kept a grip on her wrist. “I’ll take my chances.”

Nessie Strange’s Living Dead Girl Release Part 2: By Nessie Strange

Nessie Strange’s Living Dead Girl Release Part 2: By Nessie Strange

Countdown to Release Day, Part 2 : Just a Tease

 

Nessie-Strange_Living-Dead-Girl_Banner_400px

 

Now that I’ve gotten my blog back from a certain wayward character (ahem), how about a little tease from Nessie’s new book? Here’s a short excerpt from the opening chapter of LIVING DEAD GIRL: 

 Providence, Rhode Island
Was it a full moon? Because it seemed like crazy hit town and we got flooded. The funeral home was packed with more bodies than usual. I’d spent the past half hour explaining to a grieving family why an open casket really wasn’t the best option for their grandmother who’d been dead for over two weeks. Believe me, it wasn’t. I’d never been so happy to lock the front door.
Dad and I were cleaning up the prep room when my nineteen-year-old cousin Ethan appeared in the doorway with his hand shoved in a bag of chips. Like all the men in the family he towered over me, a height that was punctuated by another three or so inches of reddish-brown white boy ’fro. “You guys want the bad news or the really bad news first?”
The beginnings of a migraine pulsated in my right temple, growing more insistent by the second. It was now after ten o’clock at night. The only thing I wanted was to shower and get ready for bed.
Dad closed the stainless steel cabinet where we kept all the bottles of embalming chemicals. “Just lay it all out there.”
“Man, you guys are no fun.” He stuffed another chip in his mouth, then wiped his hand on the front of his Naruto T-shirt. “All right. We got another stiff, and Drew’s at some shady party getting hammered.” Ethan grinned.
“What?” I said. “Drew is…what?”
“You know, getting sloshed, shitfaced, cocked, drunk—”
“I know what it means, you ass.”
Dad looked at me, frowning. “Isn’t he supposed to be working on a science project?”
“What, like how many beers does it take to get to the center of a—?”
“Ethan, knock it off,” I snapped. “Yes, he was supposed to be working on a science project. I should’ve known.”
“Right? Nobody does homework on Friday nights.”
“You’re really not helping.”
Dad sighed and slumped his shoulders. “Well, one of us will have to go get him.”
“Why don’t you guys flip for it?” Ethan held a quarter between his thumb and forefinger and waved it in front of my face. “C’mon. Heads, Jen gets him; tails and Uncle Andrew does it. It’s foolproof.”
Foolproof? Ha. Right. Try suckered. Dad and I looked at each other and shrugged. My sixteen-year-old brother deserved the mother of all ass-kickings. Was it wrong that I was hoping for tails? Tails meant filling out some paperwork and escorting a body from the hospital morgue. It meant no aggravation. That body wasn’t going to argue or give me an attitude. My brother?
Yeah, different story.
Ethan slapped the quarter onto the table and lifted his hand. “Heads, my lovely cousin.”
Wonderful.

Countdown to the release of Nessie Strange’s new book: Living Dead Girl

Countdown to the release of Nessie Strange’s new book: Living Dead Girl

Countdown to Release Day, Part 1: Characters Behaving Badly

 

Nessie-Strange_Living-Dead-Girl_Banner_400px

I’m taking over this blog.

Yeah, that’s right. You heard me.  Jack Norris here, looking to tear down the walls of this Living Dead…wait, what? Man, that’s lame. Living Dead World? It’s like a Rob Zombie rip-off. This is the deal, internet people. The author claims that she’s busy and doesn’t have time to blog. Well, you know what? I call bullshit. Anyone with a couple of brain cells to rub together can type some words in Blogger. I think she’s just fuckin’ lazy. I think–

“Jack, that’s really rude. You’re not actually going to publish that, are you?” My girl Jen is leaning over my shoulder, reading what I just wrote. And looking like she’s gonna smack me right now. I slouch back in my chair and grin at her.

“Hey beautiful.”

She rolls her eyes. “I thought you were going to take this seriously.”

“Babe, I am taking this so fucking seriously you would not even believe it.”

“I,” she kisses me, “call bullshit.”

I grab her hand and pull her onto my lap. “Don’t you find it just a little creepy this writer chick seems to know everything about us?”

She shrugs. “I don’t know. That’s just what they do.”

>“I guess.” I try to distract Jen with a whole lot of other kisses, but she breaks away from me, laughs and stands up.

“Come on, get to work. We can do that later.”

“Man, I don’t even remember what she wanted me to write about. I kinda tuned her out after a while.”

“The book,” she says.

“What book?” I love giving her a hard time.

“Living Dead Girl.” Jen is trying not to laugh. I know she thinks she’s hiding it, but she always gets this little smirk on her face. Totally gives it away.

“Dude, that’s a pretty cool fuckin’ tune.”

“Jack.” She’s giving me the look again. You know, the one that means I’m pushing my luck?

“Fine,” I say with an exaggerated sigh. “The book.” I crack my knuckles.

This book is real fucking good. It’s the best book I ever

“Ow!” I rub the back of my head where Jen just whacked me.

“Be serious,” she says.

“I am.” Well, sort of. I stare at the screen for a while. Crack my knuckles. Where do I begin?
