Kismet .99.jpg
Book Title: Kismet
Author: A.E. Woodward
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 10,2014
Synopsis:
Katie’s world came crashing down in an instant.
Her husband, daughter, and unborn baby. . . all gone in a flash. The life that she’d come to know, gone before she ever really got to live it.
With a broken heart, she deals the only way she knows how, by shutting it all off. No communicating, no feelings, just pure nothingness.
Alone with nothing but her own thoughts and a well meaning family, she moves back to her childhood home, a horse farm. It’s there that she finds herself healing along with the horses her family rehabilitates. But when Parker McKenzie comes back into her life she’s reminded of all that went wrong, and all that she lost.


Meet the Author:
author pic.jpgA.E. Woodward lives in Vacationland with her husband and two young children. Between her day job and the pursuance of a master’s degree, she wrote her first novel, Imperfectly Perfect. Since then she has written three more novels, Imperfectly Real, Kismet, and Imperfectly Bad.


Excerpt:
In the twenty minutes that has passed since my Mom called Parker, the kitchen has become a hub of excitement and confusion. I’m still sitting on the hallway floor. In all the confusion I think I’ve been forgotten. But that’s fine, because I’m really good with being alone. It’s soothing for me to be lonely. That, and listening to all the conversation gives me something else to focus on besides myself. Tommy and Pop eventually join Mom and Stevenson in the kitchen, waiting for Parker. Each of them throw their two cents in as to how this should go down. Tommy insists that he should go with us, saying that Parker can’t handle the responsibility. I appreciate that he’s still trying to look out for my best interests, but the fact of the matter is that Tommy doesn’t know the half of what I need.
He goes round with Mom and Pop, but Stevenson stops him. “We need to follow her lead, Tommy.”
“I just don’t think her going there with him is the best option right now!” Tommy yells.
“Now, I respect your concern, Tommy, and we all appreciate that you want the best for your sister. However, if Katie wants to go alone with Parker then that is what we give her. She needs to be in control of her own recovery. We need to remember that this isn’t about us. She’s an adult, she can make her own choices.”
Tommy lets out a sarcastic laugh just before I hear the screen door fling open, the springs creaking in response, and then quickly slamming shut. “What the hell is going on?” Parker asks anxiously.
Quickly, Stevenson fills Parker in on my request. He adds that Parker shouldn’t feel pressured, especially if he’s not comfortable with the situation, but that he needs to understand how huge this could be for my treatment.
“Why me?” he questions.
“I dunno, Parker,” Tommy barks. “Why you?”
There’s a brief, awkward silence before Stevenson clears his throat and continues to speak. “Obviously Katie knows you well enough to know that you’ll be there for her, while allowing her enough independence to cope with it on her own terms. She’s trusting you,” Stevenson says without emotion.
“I don’t know if I can do this,” he mutters. Experience tells me that he’s most likely running his hands through his hair. He always does when he’s nervous.
A fist slams against the table, making me jump out of my skin. “You’re right, you can’t!”
“Tommy!” Mom scolds.
A few more moments of awkward silence pass. I can only imagine the looks that are being thrown in that kitchen. The tension is surely raising a few questions in everyone’s mind. “I just don’t think this is the best idea,” Tommy speaks quietly. “You’re in over your head, Park.”
“We’ve been here before, Tommy,” Parker reminds him.
“Exactly.”

Ellis and Jon need answers.
What is there to understand?

They are, in fact, Big and Terrible.

The plague is rising in Gilford. To stop it from spreading Ellis will have to embrace his destiny and Jon will have to let him go. Both men must be willing to lose everything in order to save the innocent.

It is, after all, rule number six.

Kelly resides in a quiet suburb somewhere between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY. Her day job? Kelly works in health care representing a group of nursing facilities in the WNY area. She’s been faithfully writing for three years but did write her first book ten years ago. She put it down to raise her son as a single mom and then picked it back up when she and her son finally grew up. That's when she settled into her newly married adult life and started to seriously write again. She's dabbled with Romantic Suspense stories, but recently she's been on a contemporary kick. The recipe for the men in her stories: a dash of bad boy attitude, a cup of strong and confident and, of course, besides being packed with magnificent bodies, and doused with shameless aptitudes, they must have a tender heart you want to rip out of the pages (or your e-Reader) and take to bed with you at night.

Adult Excerpt


“Put your hand under your dress,” he said, his thumb still stroking that damn wet beer bottle like it was her clit.
Kaley turned to see if anyone was watching.
“Hey!” Lucky’s stern voice whipped her head back to him. “Look at me. Don’t worry about anyone else. I’ll warn you if someone is coming.” His feet spread her legs farther apart. “Where you’re sitting, I’m the only person who can see you. Now, do as I say, unless you want me to stop.”
His daring eyes held hers, and all discretion slipped out of her grasp. She gave him his answer by dropping her hand beneath the table.
“That’s good,” he rasped, deep and low. “Now place your hand on your thigh and slide up to the top of it. Are you there yet?”
She nodded.
“I want you to grip it hard.”
With her heart racing and wishing his hand was there instead of hers, her fingers dug into her flesh.
His eyes raping her of any reluctance, he bent forward and grunted, “Harder.”
Noting all the hot spots, the tight grip he had on the beer, his biceps and the tattoos bulging from the cut of his sleeves, his mouth that lay slightly open, Kaley squeezed tighter.
“Are you wet?”
“Yes,” she gasped, clinging tighter to her thigh. “I’m so wet.”
His tongue tapped his top lip. “Are you throbbing?”
“God, I’m aching for you,” she said, and she meant it, for she wanted nothing more than his tongue on her.
“Kaley,” he said, swaying closer, tempting her, “tell me, is your pussy mine?”
“Yes,” she breathed out. “It’s all yours.”
“Then touch what is mine.”

Lennox Coymns knows sex.


He knows how a woman likes to be touched. He knows how to make a woman scream and moan. He knows the world outside of the bedroom.


As Lennox teaches Sloane about the world of voyeurism, she learns more than how to let herself be free with sex; she learns how to confident and sexy- the kind of woman Lennox desires.


But can sex and love keep themselves separated, or will these two fall under the dark spell that is the lights of Strobe?

“About what? How it would feel to have another set of eyes on me while I’m in the bedroom?”
“Who says it has to be in the bedroom?”
Sloane felt her cheeks get hot. “I don’t play outside of the bedroom,” she said in a stern tone.
“Then you’re not playing.” Lennox quipped. “I have to wonder, are you even playing in the bedroom?”
“This is not the kind of conversation to have with someone you just met.”
“Are you a virgin, Sloane?”
