About the books:
Forgiving Lies, #1)
Author: Molly McAdams
Publisher: William Morrow
Release date: October 29, 2013
The fabulous New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author returns with a sizzling, funny, and deeply emotional tale of passion and secrets, deception and forgiveness.
A matter of secrets . . .
Undercover cop Logan "Kash" Ryan can't afford a distraction like his new neighbor Rachel Masters, even if she's the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. To catch a serial killer, he needs to stay focused, yet all he can think about is the feisty, long-legged coed whose guarded nature intrigues him.
A matter of lies . . .
Deceived and hurt before, Rachel would rather be a single, crazy cat lady than trust another guy, especially a gorgeous, tattooed bad boy with a Harley, like Kash. But when his liquid-steel eyes meet hers, it takes all of Rachel's willpower to stop herself from exploring his hot body with her own.
A matter of love . . .
As much as they try to keep it platonic, the friction between them sparks an irresistible heat that soon consumes them. Can Kash keep Rachel's heart and her life safe even as he risks his own? Will she be able to forgive his lies . . . or will she run when she discovers the dangerous truth?
The Ivy Chronicles, #1)
Author: Sophie Jordan
Publisher: William Morrow
Release date: November 5, 2013
Before she goes after the life she’s always wanted, she’s about to find the one she needs.
Pepper has been hopelessly in love with her best friend’s brother, Hunter, for like ever. He’s the key to everything she’s always craved: security, stability, family. But she needs Hunter to notice her as more than just a friend. Even though she’s kissed exactly one guy, she has just the plan to go from novice to rock star in the bedroom—take a few pointers from someone who knows what he’s doing.
Her college roommates have the perfect teacher in mind. But bartender Reece is nothing like the player Pepper expects. Yes, he’s beyond gorgeous, but he’s also dangerous, deep—with a troubled past. Soon what started as lessons in attraction are turning both their worlds around, and showing just what can happen when you go past foreplay and get to what’s real…
Q. What do you love most about your character's main love interest?
Oh. My. God. What don't I love? He's probably one of the most compelling heroes I've ever written. Not only is he unbelievably hot and confidant, he's just a really GOOD person ... and he says (and does) the most gasp-worthy things.
Q. Can you tell us about the project you're working on now?
It's Tease, Emerson's book. You'll meet Emerson in Foreplay. She's one of Pepper's best friends. She comes across as ... well, a tease. A girl that is only looking for a good time and nothing deeper. No relationships. No entanglements or commitments. Naturally, there's a reason she's this way. It's fascinating to peel back her layers ... and to watch as she meets her match in sexy Ethan.
Q. What's one NA book you've read this year you'd recommend to other readers?
Wait For You by J Lynn. Also J Lynn's: Frigid.
Q. What's the first book you read that inspired you to either become an author or made you fall in love with reading?
To pick just one ... I think Victoria Holt really sold me. Her books swept me away and always left me guessing. Aside of the romance element, there was suspense and intrigue.
Q. If you could join forces and write a book with another author, who would you want to write with & why?
Ohhhhh. The list is endless. I really admire/love Jennifer Armentrout/J Lynn's work. Her books are addictive and true escapist fare. I would love to team up with her.
Q. What's one piece of advice you'd give to aspiring authors?
Really to just persevere. Talent is part of it, naturally, but writing is a craft. It can be taught. You can improve. You just have to stick to it and keep at it. And read EVERYTHING.
Q. What do you feel is more challenging in writing: crafting the story, making your story believable, writing the characters, coming up with a title?
Um. All of the above. LOL. Well, the title is probably the least concern to me. If I can't come up with a great title, I have the help of my team at Harper to get me there.
The first three things: plausibility, characterization, story-building are linked. They are all dependent on each other and equally important. For example, I can't focus on characterization with plotting the story ... and I can't plot a story without considering believability. It really is a working engine. All parts have to work to make the car move.
About the author:
Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.
A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sophie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.
In less than three years, her first book, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller's List.
