1 gossip writer + 1 A-list movie star = 1 fake relationship…or does it?

After breaking a story that rocks Hollywood, Talia is the top gossip writer around.
One night will put all of that into question. The writer becomes the story when
she gets caught doing the walk of shame from A-lister Zee Jaxon’s home.

To save both of their reputations he suggests a fake relationship. Pretending
should be easy. It shouldn’t mean the fake feelings become real. Accepting the
real feelings means the lies they’ve told are even harder to hide.

When the truth comes out can their love survive or will everything just fade to
black?



Excerpt

“I forgot to tell you something,”  Zeke said as they walked hand and hand to baggage claim.

“What?”

“Please don’t hate me.”  He kissed their linked hands.

“What did you do?”

As Zeke and Talia turned the corner to pick up their bags Talia saw a giant poster
being held by a tall muscular guy wearing a too tight t-shirt and dirty
jeans.  Scrawled on the poster were the
words she was going to have etched on her brother’s grave.

WELCOME HOME, TALLY!

SORRY PORN DIDN’T WORK OUT FOR YOU!

GLAD YOU GOT THE HELP YOU NEEDED IN REHAB FOR THE FIFTH TIME!

“You asked Rex to pick us up?”

Zeke bit his lip trying not to laugh at the poster.
When Rex saw the poster had gotten their attention, and many others
around them, he flipped it over.

WELCOME HOME, ZEKE!

I GOT THAT MEDICATION FOR YOUR STD!

HOPEFULLY THE SORES ARE NO LONGER LEAKING!

“I’m seeing my mistake now.”  Zeke said.

“I bet you are.”

Rex strode over to Zeke and Talia.  He dropped the poster and opened his arms wide.
Talia walked up to give him a hug, but landed a swift punch to his nuts.  Air whooshed out of his lungs.  Rex collapsed on the ground.  Fellow passengers walked around him.  The granny from the plane caught my eye and gave me a thumbs up.

“Hello, Rex.”  Talia stood with her hands on her
hips watching her brother struggle.

“I’m….telling…mama.”

“Go ahead.  Then I’m going to show her the poster you made.”

“Fine.”  Rex managed to get off the ground.

“Thanks for picking us up, ass wipe,”  Zeke said.

“No problem.  How could I strand my best friend and sister at the airport?
Especially when they are now seeing each other.”  Rex looked at them skeptically.

“What car did you bring?”  Talia changed the subject before questions could be asked.

“The pick-up.”

“What?  Why didn’t you bring mama’s SUV?”

“Why would I?  My pick-up is fine.”

“It’s a bench seat. “

Rex smirked at her.  “Yep.  We will be getting real close for the next hour.”

“Hour?  It takes close to an hour and a half to get to Grandin.  How fast do you plan on
going?”  Talia stopped and looked to her brother.

“You didn’t tell her?”  Rex asked.

“I didn’t have a chance.  We had a bit of an issue on the plane.”

“What happened?”

“Never mind that tell me what is going on.”
Talia stared at Zeke.

“We are going to go to my farm. It’s a half hour outside of Grandin.”

Talia glared at both of the men in front of her.
Turning on her heel she grabbed her bag and marched off toward the short
term parking.   She easily found his beat
up truck.  Slinging her bag into the bed
she stood next to the passenger door.

“In a hurry to get to your love nest, Tally?”
Rex asked.

Talia ground her jaw as she stared at her skeptical twin.  When Zeke’s arm wound around her waist, pulled her close and kissed her temple Rex groaned and wrenched the door open.

Snippet:

No way! “Hey, Tut. This sphinx still has its nose. This isn’t The Sphinx.”

“What are you saying,
Roosa? Come and help me clear the sand away from the stele.” “I said, this isn’t The Sphinx. It still has its nose.”

“Of course,
it has a nose. That’s
the way it was made.”

“No. You don’t understand,” I protest. “The Sphinx in my time has no nose. It’s been
broken off for centuries.”

Tut casts
me a perplexed look. A tingling sensation
goes through me like when you touch your tongue to the two terminals
of a battery. “Come, Roosa.
We need to unbury the stele.”

I follow
blindly, still looking
at the undamaged face of the Sphinx.
It’s definitely more striking to see it in one piece.

“People have always wondered what happened to it,” I say more to myself
than to Tut. “Guess I won’t
find out now.”

It is only as I help Tut scoop the sand away from the top edge of the stele that I realize the sand has drifted and blown all around the Sphinx, burying
it up to its neck in places.
No wonder it appears smaller.

The desert always
reclaims its own, even mighty
Pharaohs.”

I jerk my head up searching for the voice. I glance
at Tut, but he continues
to dig.

My hands wrap themselves around
my stomach. The nausea’s coming back.
It is her. It is Ankhesenamun.

“It is all right, Rosa. Here in my homeland
I find communication easier for short moments.”

Tut stops digging, his eyes glued on me. “Please, Rosa. Show him I still love and support him.”

Confused, I start to question her, but like an avalanche, the answer bursts
into my mind.



The picture
at home in my room. The two of them. Her longing
sits heavy in the pit of my stomach. Unable
to do anything else, I nod ever so slightly. Then, with Tut’s expression still questioning, I reach out and touch him as she does in the picture. Energy flows down my arm into my fingertips. Tut grips my hand and presses it to his heart.

Book Description

If anyone tells you hunting ghosts is less dangerous than chasing down real-life criminals, they’re wrong. Very, very wrong.

Case two takes us to a New Jersey Shore Inn. A beautiful, yet dead opera singer seems to be begging for help, but her pleas do nothing but terrorize the locals.

While trying to decipher the clues to her 1919 disappearance, uncovering hair-raising horrors, it becomes clear that Jason and I no longer see eye-to-eye.

Jason wants me to stop meddling with the supernatural. He wants me to stop risking my life by interacting with demons and spirits.

What he doesn’t understand is this is my life. These tortured souls need my help in order to move on. How do I walk away from that—from them?

But the better question is—how do I walk away from him?



Trudy Hicks Ghost Hunter Case One- The Deceit

Excerpt
2:
The dog, who had
been sleeping at her feet, let out a low snarl and stood at attention. His
focus was on the window that faced the lawn by the pool and the beach beyond.
Trudy pushed back her chair and stood stiffly and tip-toed quietly to the
window, and peered out.
Her heart rose
in her throat when she saw him and recognized him immediately from her dream.
The stern face and cold eyes of the un-named uncle stared back at her. He stood
just ten feet away on the lawn, illuminated in the moonlight and looking just
like he did on the beach that day in her dream.
She turned and
dashed out of the room, pulling her phone from the pocket of her shorts and
heading toward the doors by the pool to chase the phantom down. Rocky, yapping
and whining, was by her side.
Trudy padded
lightly through the pool area and out the wrought-iron gate that led to the
lawn and the beach beyond. She gave a command to the big dog for silence and
directed him around the pool shed opposite her. The light from her cell phone
illuminated the corner of the structure, Trudy knew if anyone or thing were
hiding there, Rocky would flush them out toward her.
The night was
still and humid. She felt a bead of perspiration trickle down her temple to her
cheek and whisked it away. The crash of the waves on the other side of the dune
was the only sound interrupting the silence.
The two-way
radio on her belt sounded. “Where the hell are you?” came Jason’s voice.
She listened
into the night for a moment then whispered, “By the pool shed,” before turning
down the volume when she heard Rocky snarl.

Her heart
pounded furiously in her chest, and she fought off the spell of dizziness that
suddenly overcame her. Rocky’s bark was louder and more urgent. She pressed
against the structure and made her way toward the sound.
The hair on the
back of her neck rose, and a chill slid down her body while her knees went
weak. She knew someone was just beyond her line of vision. She sensed it, her
nerves screamed it, and the loud noise that was coming from the big dog a few
feet away confirmed it.
Now at the end
of the structure, leaning against the warm metal siding not only for cover but
balance, Trudy gazed outover the lawn then ever so slowly peeked around the
corner.
“What the hell
are you doing?” Jason whispered harshly behind her, causing her to screech.
Trudy stumbled awkwardly back when something white flew through the air
directly at her head. She ducked, and the thing hissed as it catapulted over
Jason’s shoulder and landed a few feet away.
“A cat?” The
feline looked at them grumpily before darting up the nearest tree when Rocky
gave chase.
“This is why you
came out here? A damn cat?” Jason checked his shoulder where the feline’s claws
tore his shirt. Satisfied that the skin underneath was not wounded, he looked
up at her, waiting for her reply.
Trudy ignored his
question and stepped forward to fuss over his shoulder, not trusting that it
was unscathed, and ran her hand over the smooth skin. She avoided eye contact.
Jason grabbed the hand on his shoulder and pulled her closer.
“So, Hicks, are
you going to tell me what the hell brought you out here when I specifically
told you to stay put?” He studied her face before dropping his eyes to her
lips.
Trudy pushed
back the heavy weight of her hair from her sweaty brow and brushed a kiss the
scruffy hair on his chin.
“Umm, I think
you should learn quick, Young, that I don’t do well with orders.”

Author: Chris Cannon
Genre: YA Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Narrator: Julie Niblett
Audio Producer: The Audio Flow, LLC
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
Since discovering she is a shape-shifting dragon, Bryn McKenna has seen her world thrown into chaos. Being a "crossbreed" - part Red dragon and part Blue - means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking...

But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he's betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn't a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn's former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn't quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she's caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.

Because if Bryn can't adapt to the status quo...well, then maybe it's time for her to change it. 

The Going Down in Flames series is best enjoyed in order.
