PAST CHOICES DO NOT DETERMINE THE FUTURE…
A broken heart. A yearning soul. A choice to make.
A SALON OWNER WHO’S FORGOTTEN HER DREAMS…
Kym Zhang feels stuck. Her parents abruptly moved, leaving her to balance running a nail salon and helping her best friend heal after a near-fatal car accident. The day-to-day grind is getting tedious until a mechanic sparks her interest.
A MECHANIC WHO’S STUCK IN THE PAST…
Zach Cohen’s been all over the world building cars for movie stunt scenes. When his mentor asks for help, the Hollywood film mechanic can’t refuse. Besides, he needs a quiet place to rest, and time to get over the woman who demolished his heart.
When the cute salon owner asks him to jump her—actually her car—he figures Kym to be the perfect solution to defuse the volatile situation with his ex. However, he underestimates Kym, and how much she can make him forget old hurts in favor of new love. A slow sizzle burns between Zach and Kym until Hollywood calls him back, forcing them to make choices between their obligations and what they truly want out of life.

SPURNED: Frequently Asked Questions: (FAQ)
Why did you choose a Hollywood mechanic for Zach’s profession?
My best friend since college has worked in feature films, most recently she worked on Fast and Furious 6.  Hearing about the behind-the-scenes challenges, and seeing special footage of the car chase scene was fun.  During those weeks of shooting, my friend got to know many of the guys working on the cars. While a Hollywood mechanic sounds sexy, most of the guys worked around the clock to modify cars ahead of the filming schedule. They are well aware that things can and do go wrong. Cars get crashed or dented or the on-board camera angle needs to be changed. It’s a hard job, but never more rewarding when a chase scene sequence runs perfectly.
What’s up with Kym and her sister?
Kym has always been the more serious and responsible sibling, as demonstrated when she stays behind to help Mara recover from her near-fatal car accident. When Kym’s family essentially abandons her by moving away from Elkridge, she is determined to make her life work.  Since the age of 19, Kym’s essentially taken care of herself, with little to no support, and resents her older sister who has always depended on others to bail her out.
What happened between Kym and Brad Clairemont?

Brad has small-town syndrome. Like his sister, Rachelle, they are big fish in a small pond, and have an entitled attitude. According to the small town standard, their dad is wealthy and connected. The siblings have been raised to believe they are untouchable. Take an arrogant male, and pair him with a stubborn woman, and you get a combustible relationship.  Unfortunately, Brad is no gentleman; he uses his fists to communicate and get his way.

Excerpt

They murmur their agreement before leaving me with Addie. I know what thoughts are running through their mind, but I don’t care.  Here in the dim light, I brush a strand of hair from her face and take a moment of self-indulgent gazing before gathering her in my arms and carrying her back to her room. As we travel, she sleepily wraps her arms around my neck, snuggling into me. I still so as not to wake her. Once arrived at her room, I settle her in bed, pulling the duvet over her. Dimitri was right, I don’t want to let her go but I must. “I will do whatever it takes to keep you safe and to be worthy of you. Even if that means letting you go,” I whisper before gently kissing her forehead. I Make my way to the door as quietly as I can, trying not to wake her but she stirs. “Kaden, is that you?” she asks sleepily. “Yeah, you fell asleep earlier, I thought I’d bring you back.” “You always do,” she says, falling back into a heavy sleep.

Release Day: 1st March

#IncidentofMagicTour


Synopsis

Sold at the age of twelve to support his mother’s drug habit and rescued from a life on the streets by a cop, thirty-two-year old Tony Locke had had a brutal start in life. He’d risen to the position of homicide detective in the Everlight Police Department—a testament to his intelligence and driving ambition to help other victims of Everlight’s prolific industry in sex and drugs. With his promotion to the hush-hush Interdimensional Task Force, he could broaden his reach—if he could just get along with his a-hole of a partner.

Leo Fortan labored under a soul-crushing burden of sacrifice, trapped in a lonely and rigid existence. Hand-picked from that existence and assigned to the Interdimensional Task Force, he thought his life had taken a turn for the better—until he met his partner, Tony Locke. Leo thought it probable they would kill each other.

For a man who thought love didn’t exist and a man who’d sacrificed everything for it, finding common ground may require more than an incident of magic.

Excerpt


Locke wanted to apprehend the transporters, interrogate them and set up a raid on the locations in Everlight where the kidnapped victims were held. A colossal waste of time as far as he was concerned. He conceded that Locke’s whining about his non-cooperation held some truth. He hadn’t cooperated, but then Locke hadn’t even considered working the case from his angle. With what Silk was beginning to consider Locke’s MO—everything the man did lacked thorough planning—Locke had charged off, engaged in an ill-conceived cowboy shootout, screamed at him to chase the perp down, then stormed after the suspect and KO’d himself. Silk’d had to abandon his stealthy pursuit and watch the perp vanish through a transient portal into Elysium. Yeah, he had a few things he wanted to say to Kavaliro and Chief Hocinka about his Everlight ‘partner,’ like, how soon could he be reassigned?
The passenger door swung open, and Locke collapsed onto the car seat. Silk dug into a pocket on his tactical vest pulled, out an emergency trauma kit and offered it to Locke. “Should be some gauze pads in there.”
The man crossed his arms over his chest, glared straight ahead and muttered a nasal, “Fuck you,” that came out, “Nuck ooo.”
“You’re getting blood on the upholstery.”
“Nuck ooo.”
“I’m taking you to the emergency room. Your forehead’s going to need stitches.”
“Just drive.”
“Your door’s still open.”
With a groan, Locke leaned over and pulled the car door shut.
“If you feel like puking, make sure you roll down the window.”

Locke turned his bloody face toward Silk and snarled. With a chuckle, Silk started the engine, put the car in gear and drove to St. Mercy in blessed silence.

Single Submissive by Marilyn Lakewood Blog Toure

Standard
Book: Single Submissive
Author: Marilyn Lakewood
Genre: Dominant/submissive ménage romance

Release Date: 28th February#SingleSubmissiveTour


Synopsis

A television dating show? What sensible woman does that?

Desperate times force drastic measures as thirty-two-year-old Sophie Baxter searches for Mr. Right Dom. But for a shy submissive, five weeks on a reality show might be a bad decision. One decision is easy, however: the Dom she chooses won’t be an actor.

Dex Hampton… successful film actor, coveted bachelor, and England’s sexiest export, but for this mysterious, reserved Dominant, fame isn’t a goal. Finding the right submissive is his top priority, and he’ll do anything to get his girl.

Jake Sinclair’s golden good looks and rakish Aussie charm fuel his flourishing acting career. He does his own stunts and tackles life full on. He’s achieved everything he’s ever wanted, except finding the right submissive. When he sees Sophie, nothing will stop him from winning her. Not even the competition of his longtime friend and fellow Dominant, Dex Hampton.

As the entire world watches, two movie superstars compete for a beautiful submissive who is ready to yield in all ways but one: she will not have an actor as a Dom.

Excerpt

THE GIRL… Sophie
“I entered my name as a contestant for the new bachelorette reality show, The Single Submissive.” Sophie kept her voice as quiet as possible.
Across the table her best friend stopped chewing and blinked up from her plate. Elise’s throat bobbed as she swallowed. “You did what?”
“That new show… with submissive bachelorettes. I applied to be the bachelorette.”
“Wow, I’m… surprised is an understatement. Considering how shy you are. I mean, you’ll be in front of millions of people, and they’ll all know you’re a—”
“Sub? Yes,” she whispered.
Elise whispered too, but it came out more as a hiss. “See? You can’t even say the whole word out loud in public. How can you think you’ll be able to go on national television and talk about your most intimate life?”
“I have very good reasons for doing this.”
“Such as?”
“I’m broke.”
“No, you’re not! You’re the best costume designer on the West Coast.”
“Shh.” Sophie put her finger to her lips. “I’m meeting expenses, but I have no savings. I need to think about that now.”
“Uh oh. That’s what this is really about, isn’t it? Your last birthday?”
“No, of course not.” Well, maybe. The words old spinster flashed in her head.
“It is! You think thirty-two is over the hill, don’t you?” Thirty-five-year-old Elise looked affronted. But her friend was stunning, and Elise had a forty-five-year-old Dom who was one of the hottest, classiest men Sophie knew. Men like that didn’t fall out of the sky.
“No, of course not.” Sophie would never look as glamorous as Elise, though, no matter how many birthdays. “I’m just feeling a little low, that’s all.”
“So you thought going on TV and telling the world you’re a subbie would help?”
“No… Well, maybe.”
“Okay, truth time. Why are you doing this?”
“I’m lonely.” She sagged back into her seat.
“Aww, girlfriend, you had that cute suit chasing you around last month. I know you’re cautious, but he seemed solid and nice.”
“He was nice, just not a Dom.”
“How do you know?”
“I asked him.” Her cheeks burned with embarrassment recalling the evening. “He got that look in his eyes—the one of a polite vanilla person out of their depth with kinky. I don’t blame him. We all have our preferences and limits. My wanting a Dom was out of his comfort zone. I understand.”
“So you told him it wouldn’t work?”
“Yes.” And now she was lonely… again… but it wasn’t fair to start something neither could be happy with.
“We should go to the club. Maybe you’ll meet someone this time.”

Sophie started shaking her head the moment she heard “club.” That had been awkward and unproductive. “No, I never catch anyone’s eye in that kind of environment. At least no one I’m attracted to.” Elise’s flashy looks grabbed attention, but Sophie was just pretty—average face, average figure. Mr. Right Dom had not come walking out of the dim interior and offered to collar her. “I need to explore a new gene pool, or Dom pool.”



Meet The Author

Marilyn and her husband live in the northwest U.S., not too far from the Canadian border. She thinks the long, cold winters are perfect “writing weather.” Most of the time, she doesn’t mind the short days, or the snow—except when she needs to drive in a blizzard, in the dark.

Marilyn started writing sexy stories “just for fun” and she’ll joyously admit she’s obsessed with creating hard-core dominant heroes and happily-ever-after endings.

Writing erotic romance lets her explore love, passion, and sex, through the lens of different characters and settings. It’s also a way to keep her imagination kindled during the September to March “cold snap.” Marilyn loves music, flowers, sci-fi and romance movies, and taking daily walks with Precious, her rescued dog.

She’s a country girl at heart, and although she imagines travelling to distant, romantic shores, her favorite place is home with her family.

Excerpt


Shit. Shit. Shit! Tony Locke slid on the slimy pavement, barely missing decapitation by the edge of the dumpster. The stench and clutter of the back alley separated him from his partner and left him in lone pursuit of the bastard they’d been tracking for weeks. He jumped a stack of cardboard boxes and pounded down the alley. A quick glance up at the Everlight sky almost cost him, but he vaulted the fence that appeared out of nowhere and landed hard. His legs and lungs screamed for mercy, but he wasn’t going to lose that son of a bitch.

Ten years as a beat cop and five as a detective in Everlight hadn’t prepared him for the perp he was trying to keep up with. He shot a glance heavenward just as the bastard laid out in a perfect swan dive and flew from one rooftop to the next. Mother fucker! Tony slammed into the corner of the building and shot down the alleyway catching glimpses of the Flying Zelda wannabe as he scaled walls, did gymnastic turns-and-twists in midair and laughed. Yeah, the bastard was laughing. Fucker.

The man latched onto a bar suspended between two buildings and swung around the damn thing in a huge loop with straight arms and pointed toes. Keep showing off, you asshat. I’ve almost got you. His anger forced him to dig deep and run harder after the interdimensional sex slaver. His muscles thrummed with every ounce of hatred-fueled power he could muster. The guy let go of the bar and did a couple flips on his way to the ground. Halle-fucking-luia. Equal playing ground. Got you now, you son of a bitch! His thighs burned, and his lungs threatened to explode, but he was going to catch that guy or die trying. The shadowed figure cut hard to the right and vanished around the corner of a building. Tony was five feet behind the asshole and gaining ground. He slammed around the blind corner—and ate a fucking brick wall.
