Groupie Blog Tour


Today is our stop for the Groupie blog tour! We are so excited to host Groupie and Susan Daugherty! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

About Groupie:

Moving to a new city isn’t the magic fix Lexie Travis hoped it would be. Sure, she put some mileage between herself and her feuding parents, her miserable dating history, and the memories of a life-altering injury. However, she still feels like a former shadow of herself, hiding behind her diminished confidence and her thorough disbelief in true love. Everything changes when Lexie’s best (and only) friend drags her to a country music concert. Lexie loves country music, but she loathes the top-selling heartthrob who sold out the arena. Jack Morgan became a sensation with a string of degrading, shallow songs that she can’t stand. A startling trauma lands Jack in the hospital, and Lexie is the physical therapist assigned to the VIP treatment of the very man she despises. Jack is drawn to the one woman who appears resistant to his charms and who loves to check his ego every chance she gets, yet gives him the honesty he needs. She’s the opposite of his usual groupies. He can only continue his tour if he receives rehab on the road, and Lexie is the lone person Jack trusts for the job. Reluctantly, she agrees to take the journey on his luxury coach, joining the wild cast of characters on his crew. Yes, she was given many incentives to take the assignment, but the reason she wants to ignore is the dangerous one. Jackson Morgan is growing on her. At every turn, another challenge pushes her away from him. Stepping onto the tour bus is the domino that starts a chain reaction in their lives and challenges them both to change. Could they learn to believe in love and happily ever after? *Please note: Groupie is Volume One in a two-part series

EXCERPT:



“Can I have this dance?” he asked very seriously, and I paid attention then to the slow song coming through the windows. It was Eric Clapton's “Wonderful Tonight,” and I was half reluctant and half giddy as I stood and shuffled a step away from the bench with him.
“This is breaking the rules, you only have one crutch,” I reminded him.
“Yes, but in my free hand I hold onto someone I trust very much.” He put his arm tightly around my waist, the other on his crutch to support the right side, and we swayed back and forth, unable to turn. His warm body and strong arm felt comforting, and despite myself, I was leaning into him and enjoying the dance. “Sorry, I’m not a great partner here. I can’t even claim two left feet—just one foot period,” he jested, making me giggle.
“You’re doing just fine…and you smell great.” I sighed and then realized I’d said it out loud and stuttered, “Oh- oops.”
He chuckled at me. “I see white wine is a truth serum for you. I’ll keep that in mind. By the way, I loved watching you dance out there. I hope you know you’re really talented I mean, just because you’re not on a team or in Hollywood, doesn’t mean you can’t still have dance in your life. You should have seen people watching you on the floor; they got so into the music, and you made them want to get up and groove, too. It made the show much better, which makes me look better, and therefore, I owe you again.”
I brushed his comments off by shaking my head. “This was such a fancy night out, believe me, I owe you.”
Another song started, a slightly faster Temptations song, but we stayed put and picked up the tempo of our sway as well. I glanced over to see Joe standing nearby, feigning disinterest in our activity but staying vigilant.
I laughed softly. “Can’t say I’ve ever danced with anyone who needed a bodyguard before.”
He smiled and tucked my hair back where the breeze blew it across my cheek. When the song ended, I yawned, feeling the alcohol pulling at my eyelids. Jackson told me we could leave since the guys loaded the equipment up, and Hank was driving the bus back.
Joe drove the Jeep while Andy and I sat in back, Jackson and his crutches in shotgun. I felt the cool breeze washing over me and my hair blowing all around as I looked up at the stars. I thought of what an amazing date it could have been, if only it was a real date. And that was my last memory of the night.

Excerpt:


What do you want, Wynn?” His voice came out harsh, challenging.
A long time ago, she promised herself if they were ever in the same place at the same time, she would never allow him to simply walk away again. “I want you to do something you haven’t done in way too long, and look in the damn telescope.”
“You don’t know anything about what I do.” He shot the words at her and stomped over to the telescope. Once more he gazed in the lens.
“I used to,” she whispered her comeback and then let it lie. While she followed his career, the man was right. The one person she used to know best, she didn’t know anymore. For quite some time, he remained hunched over the instrument. She knew he had to be looking at something and not simply stewing in his own juice, because he made some adjustments to the instrument.
“Look what I found.” His voice softened and he held his hand out to her.
Never able to resist him, she grabbed it. Gently, he pulled her toward the telescope.
She took her turn and smiled at what he centered in her view. “Hello, Mars, my old friend.”
“That’s for you.” He moved behind her and put his hands on her waist.
At his simple touch, her body heated. She couldn’t give in that easily. The man had always been an emotional rollercoaster, one second sweet and romantic, the next blocking her out. In the day since she moved in with him, they had already run the gamut of feelings, from a kiss that made her crave more, to him not wanting her to speak at the press conference, and then shutting her out.
Again, she changed the view, until one of her favorite stars took center stage. “Your turn.”
She went to move, but Garner held her in place and curled around her to look into the telescope.
“Ah.” He tilted his head and glanced at her. “Antares. A red giant.”
“It reminds me of you.” Between him gazing at her with his eyes half closed, and how he tightened his embrace, she found it hard to concentrate.
He raised his eyebrows. “Because it’s considered the heart of the scorpion?”
“Maybe I don’t want to get stung.” She had experienced the harm he could inflict before, but his was a passive pain. Rather than bite, he simply disappeared. What could he do now?
“Who said I sting?” He kissed her behind her ear.
Her breath caught. Too many days she prayed to be in this exact position, and deep down she knew she put herself here, but when faced with getting what she wanted, she tensed. Who knew how long it would last this time? “Garner.”
He trailed his lips down her neck to her shoulder. “Tell me, did that hurt?”
She turned in his arms. “That’s a matter of opinion.”
“Then we better make sure.” His lips descended upon hers.

{Cover Re-Reveal} Anchored Hearts Series by J.M. Witt


Cover Re-Reveal
Anchored Hearts Series
By J.M. Witt


LETTING GO (Anchored Hearts Vol 1)


What happens when the girl who's only read about BDSM meets a flawed Dom? Will their tortured souls find love amidst the pleasure and the pain? Or will misconceptions and unrealistic expectations destroy them before they’ve even begun?
James Benedict III, local playboy and successful real estate investor, hasn’t stopped thinking about Cassidy since the horrific events that occurred in his bar several months ago. Working hard to protect her and still blaming himself for her grief, he’s unable to stay away any longer. Crashing back into her life, he discovers he may need her more than she needs him.
Cassidy Charles is slowly putting the pieces of her life back together once again. She's managed to leave everything to do with that horrible night behind her, including James. When he reappears, she finds the attraction undeniable and falls into a lifestyle that rivals her fantasies. As her demons come head to head with his, she worries that his world will destroy her.
When your past threatens to destroy your future, how long will you hang on before Letting Go?



HIDING AWAY (Anchored Hearts Vol.1.5)


Who do you trust, and who do you love, when the secrets of your past are so painful that you’re Hiding Away?
Jane Whitford had everything she ever wanted, at her fingertips, when it was violently ripped away. The man who was supposed to love her turned into a monster. Broken and bruised, she fled his clutches back to her hometown. Love is the last thing she wants when she meets Cal. The only thing on her mind, is fun, and lots of it. Will she open her heart to him before it's too late?
Calvin Charles is a cop on the streets, working hard to achieve his goal of joining SWAT. He strives to live with no regrets and has everything he needs; friends, family, and the occasional woman to warm his bed. Until he meets Jane, and she quickly becomes everything he wants. Will he be able to get her to open up when she’s convinced that exposing her secrets will cost her his love and respect?
Will his love be strong enough to survive? Or will her secrets be the death of him?



LETTING GO OF YOU (Anchored Hearts Vol. 2)


James,
Letting Go of You will be the hardest decision of my life.
We were devoted and committed to one another. Secret clubs, family, friends, careers and undeniable chemistry filled our lives. Previous troubles seemed nonexistent. We were ready and willing for whatever life had to offer. Life was perfect. If only ‘perfect’ really existed.
What I didn’t expect was that one tragic event would trigger the demons you kept hidden from me. I had to decide if I could live with not knowing your secrets. And just when I thought we would make it through, another hurdle was placed in front of us. Tragedy, murder, first loves, old enemies, and death lingered at every turn.
Will your demons be the death of us? Or will my anchored heart be strong enough to hold on?
Only You ~Cassidy



FADING AWAY (Anchored Hearts Vol. 2.5)


Can our love heal the wounds that consume us? Or will the past leave your soul Fading Away?
Cal is fighting for his life and for his love. Never wanting to settle down until he found her, his baby doll. Her secrets left him bleeding on the floor and comatose. He’ll fight for her, no matter the cost. But what if that means committing murder?
Jane almost lost everything she never knew she needed. Some of her secrets revealed, but not all. Nightmares consume her, but so does her love for Cal. Will she be able to let go of the past and move forward?
Will murder charges ruin their chance at happily ever after? Or will they get the one thing they both want? Each other…forever.



LETTING GO OF US (Anchored Hearts Vol. 3)


Cassidy,
While grieving for my mother I lost sight of you, my love, my life, and what we had created. You said the one word I never wanted to hear from your lips and it nearly broke me. I know now that it was your plea for me to hear you.
I heard you and I planned on fixing it, even if it took the rest of my life. We never bargained for what came next. You became a stranger to me, my own wife. Wife. The word was suddenly foreign to me. Thrust into a situation we didn’t expect, you proved to me over and over again what love was. I pray you’ll let me return the favor.
My cage is empty and waiting for you, my Blackbird. I’ll spend eternity proving that I’m never letting go of us.
Always, only, forever… James
