Review:

Sometimes faking something makes you wonder what is truly real to begin with. This book was FANTASTIC! I was sad when it ended and wanted more. It is book number two in the Accidentally Yours series and since I haven’t read the first I will be adding it to my TBR list. Wade and Arden are like minded in the idea of Love, neither think they can or want to find it. So when forced by outside sources to pretend to be a couple things get good. This is a sweet romance so you get the steamy attraction but no sex details.  The story blended really well, kept me reading and I loved the banter between these two. You can go click buy now and curl up and read in your favorite spot. This is one that will be a favorite I just know it!!

Review: 

Can I just say I wish I had a Protector like Damon! Yes, he is a bit moody, has a bad view of himself but when it comes to something he wants… Well let’s just say he is a very stubborn man, and what is the best way to annoy that kind of man? You give him an even more determined and stubborn women to look out for.  Cate lost her sister in what was called an accident, but the details never made since to her. She needed answers and wouldn’t stop until she got them. I loved Cate in this book, she is strong, independent and knows what she wants. She knows she could be killed in her pursuit for answers but keeps looking, needing that closure. She also can go toe to toe with Damon which means I loved her even more. This is Book 4 in this series and I am definitely going back to read the rest! Now go one click this baby and curl up in your reading spot! I know you will love it.

Exclusive Excerpt:

Cate Pendleton dumped her grocery bags on the kitchen counter and glanced around the living room area of her small one-bedroom condo. Flattened pillows. Magazines spread across the coffee table. A blanket in a ball on the floor from where it slipped off her last night while she watched television. The remote stuffed between cushions. Everything was exactly where she left it when she took off on her store run an hour ago. But something struck her as off. She felt it rather than saw it. A violation of her scared space. A lingering menace. The sensation of unknown hands skimming over her things. A shiver skated through her at the thought. With her keys sticking between her fingers like a weapon, she walked around the condo, peeking in the closet and looking inside the bedroom. The journey ended back here she started. She approached the couch nice and slow. She listened for footsteps, but the only sound came from the hiss of her clunky, usually-malfunctioning icemaker. She leaned toward the cushions, just a bit, and sniffed. There it was. Aftershave. Faint, but present. Since a man hadn’t been in the condo for weeks the smell was out of place. And this was not the first time this had happened. She came home two days ago to the same scent. A mix of musk and orange. The last time it happened in the evening. This time in the morning. On that first day, she found her patio door unlocked. Living in a city, she didn’t take her personal safety for granted. Being two floors up, tucked behind rows of government buildings and a few blocks back from the National Air and Space Museum in downtown Washington, D.C., she kept her guard up. The neighborhood served as home to many congressional staffers. Traffic, both human and the car variety, moved in a steady beat. But she knew better than to assume everything was fine. She locked her doors. All of them and all the time, but someone got in. A punch of awareness moved though her as she brushed her fingertips over the arm of the chair. The idea of someone snooping through her stuff, standing in her space, made her gag. Last time nothing was stolen, so she skipped calling the police with that fear. Wrote the whole thing off as faulty memory. She knew something strange had happened, but she blocked it and pretended otherwise. But this was different. From the first whiff of that cologne, the trembling started deep down in her stomach, spun up to her head and would not stop. She forced her mind to focus. Someone kept getting in without leave much of a trail. They didn’t stick around, and for that she was grateful. Nothing stolen. Not obviously, anyway. Her sister. That’s what this had to be about. Cate thought back to the last six weeks and all the ground she’d covered. She poked around, asked uncomfortable questions and clearly upset someone. She got too close, which was exactly her plan. Maybe she uncovered some piece of information she hadn’t realized yet. But she would. If someone broke in thinking they’d figure out her strategy or grab every lead she’d collected, they miscalculated. No way would she make it that easy for anyone to destroy her work or derail her. After the first time this happened, she called the police but that led nowhere. A second call likely would end the same way. They would ignore her, write her off as the crazy one with the dead sister. Add to that her complaint wouldn’t pinpoint any clear evidence. This was about a sense of a presence, of being spooked, and she would become the new lunchtime story for the officers. But she knew. He had been there. He or she. The person knew how to get in and was playing with her. The next time she might come home too soon. Despite her worries and the downsides, she picked up the phone and dialed the one person who might be able to help her, the mysterious D.C. fixer. The guy no one ever saw who went by one name – Wren.

LIAR

 by Stephanie St. Klaire 

Coming

 August 23


Synopsis:


Fake it until you make it. That was the mantra Cori Dash chanted as she chased a big city dream. The more you tell people you

re on top of the world, the more they believe it – just like they believed the embellished image she sold them with her knock off designer facade. It wasnt lying if the truth stood somewhere in the middle – and she didnt get caught.

Dominic Blackthorne owned half of that big city

and a reputation. Rather than dispel rumors or show the world the real Nick, he let his own fake image run free. Until Cori Dash – the only person who told him exactly how it was, even if it stung.

When Cori is faced with her ex-fiance, now engaged to her ex-best friend, it

s game on. In her boldest move yet, she concocts her biggest lie to date by introducing the first handsome stranger that walks by as her new fiancé. Happy to play the part, Nick is already planning the fake wedding of her dreams.

You know what they say about lying 

– the truth always comes out – and it hurts. Especially when Cori finds out she isnt the biggest Liar in this game, and shes been out played.

AUTHOR INFORMATION:




Stephanie St. Klaire is a Pacific Northwest native currently living in Portland, Oregon with her husband, five children, and two ferocious lap dogs that are used to the finer things in life like sleeping all day. When she isnt writing, she can usually be found with a plate full of tacos, a side of bean dip, and probably some gummy bears while being a little bit hippy and a lot bit busy moming and wifeing.

When shes not tossing around gritty crime show inspired serial killers and diabolical bad guys, she likes to make people pee their pants a little with a good romcom. Sometimes, her worlds collide, and she writes really funny stuff right before she kills people off on the pages! She loves murder and mayhem as much as a good laugh and HEA! Thats why shes a die-hard Hallmark junky but loves her gritty crime shows – balance!

Stephanie has always been a story teller, with the gift of gab, and a life-long goal to be a writer. Unfortunate circumstances with her health, finally afforded her the time to do so. Irony at its best, she began writing her first novel at an adverse time, to escape her circumstance and explore the stories in her imagination for relief. She is happy to share those stories with her readers, and bring a little fun, entertainment, and of course smexy characters to the pages.

Follow Stephanie St. Klaire on Social media to learn more about her, how often she really eats tacos, and to keep up with her work.

EXCERPT

“Your freckles are sexy.”

His voice was all low and rumbly and her belly twisted despite his absurd statement. She’d been told her freckles were cute before but never sexy.


She snorted. “About as sexy as halitosis.”


His abs rippled as he laughed. “It’s true.”


“I hate them.”


He shook his head. “I want to kiss every one of them.”


“Well settle in, then. It’ll take you a while.”


“And that’s a negative how?”


Val smiled as she thought about where those lips might end up. Yeah. She couldn’t see any negatives. If only she’d known at the age of eight they were going to bring her such pleasure one day she might not have subjected herself to the toad therapy a kid called Brian Humphries had touted as a cure when she’d been eight.  


She still shuddered thinking about it all these years later.


“And your hair.” His gaze roved around her head as his fingers played with the ends of a lock brushing her shoulder. God know what it looked like after two hours of debauchery. “It’s glorious. The most stunning Titian colour.”


Val blinked. “Titian?” 
 

What the fuck? Her heart beat a crazy tango in her chest at Kyle’s self deprecating smile. “He was a renaissance painter.”


“I know who he was.”


“Ah.” He smiled at her. “You’re surprised I know who he was?”


“Well yeah...a little.”


“Are you saying I’m some dumb jock?”


His voice was still deliciously rumbly and his fingers drew lazy patterns along her collar bones so she didn’t he was too offended. “I’m saying I don’t know too many dudes who know their renaissance painters.”


He smiled. “My mother took all five of us kids to the national art gallery to get some culture when I was fourteen. Now, we were a bunch of bogans from the western suburbs, loud and uncouth, so I don’t really blame the people at the gallery for treating us like we were casing the joint, but they had a hard time removing me from the visiting Titan exhibition. I can still remember staring at all the glorious ranga chicks he’d painted.”


Val smiled at the affection Aussie term for a red head. “Are you sure it was the hair and not their...how shall I put this...lack of clothing?”


He laughed and the rumble vibrated through her hand. “He did paint a lot of naked chicks.”


She rolled her eyes. “Oh, you noticed?”


“Are you kidding? I was teenage boy.” He grinned as he rubbed the lock of her hair between his fingers.
“I got a hard on seeing the occasional flash of side boob. Those paintings were like a wet dream. But I remember the hair too.”


Val laughed not quite believing she was talking about Titian at two in the morning with a pro rugby player although god knew, he could have easily been the subject of an artist’s brush. Or maybe a sculptor’s clay? The lights had been dimmed but she could make out every sexy feature of his face. Not even the gap in his teeth or his crooked nose ruined it’s classic perfection.
