DREAMZ (Wunder 0.5)

A World of Turmoil and Yearning

Wunder may have a normal life now…well, as normal as a freak of nature could have. Half zombie while her job is to hunt bloodthirsty creatures to protect the innocent. It’s the dreams that haunt her and they aren't nightmares. Wunder dreams of a man, a man made just for her. Is he real, can he be the one she‘s yearned for?

Pete’s world is a lonely one as he wrestles with the reality of being part zombie. His hatred for the creatures that killed his parents drives him to patrol the streets and wipe them all out. His life would be stark, but for the dreams he’s been having; of a woman, so sensuous, so sexy. These alluring visions have become erotic and consuming. He feels as if he made her up to keep from going crazy. Is this life of hunting the walking dead, all there is? Or is she out there, waiting…just for him?

 *WARNING* This is NOT a dark romance. There will be MINIMAL angst or drama. There will be lots of laughs, frequent dropping of the F-bomb, and crazy monkey sex.

You know how people say they woke up in Vegas married and you're like, how the hell could that possibly happen? Who does that? Well, us apparently… and the press is having a field day.

Let's not even get started on the topic of my mother. Then there's my grandpa wanting to meet my new husband--that's not scary at all. On top of that, we're heading out on tour and I'm a nervous wreck--factor in the fact that Jesse's newly changed marital status doesn't seem to be an issue for the groupies. Nothing deters them. Not even the fact that I'm standing right there when they proposition him.

I can handle the press, my mom, and even my grandpa. But the women who are ruining my current mood of "happy", well, they've got another thing coming. It's time to put these women in their place because nobody messes with my happily ever after.

Sera
He’s my protector, my confidante. Then one night he became more. I want him, I need him, and, if I’m honest with myself, I love him. I just don’t know if he’ll ever see me as more than what we’ve always been: friends. I don’t want to lose him but it’s getting harder and harder to keep my feelings to myself. Should I risk it all or play it safe?

Cage
She’s my light, my saving grace. The night we came together I knew I could never live without her. I want her to be mine: my lover, my friend. Maybe, if I can get her to see past all the reasons why we shouldn’t be together, she’ll be my forever. It just might be time to turn it up and go for broke.

Book Four: Interlude-
It's time to go back on tour...

Being on the road will be challenging for me with the Kingston litter on board. Add in the Blush Baby campaign that is now underway, the never-ending threats to the family, the Jesse-obsessed fans, and the changes that have happened since the last time we were on tour, I can’t help but wonder what else is in store for us.

One thing’s for sure: It won’t be boring.

Xpresso Opal Carew Hard Ride Book Blitz & Giveaway!


Thank you for stopping by my blog. Today I'm hosting Opal Carew's Hard Ride Book Blitz & Giveaway presented by Xpresso Book Tours.


Title: Hard Ride #1: A Novel in Three Parts
Author: Opal Carew
Published by: St. Martin’s Press
Publication date: April 7th 2015
Genres: Adult, Romance
Goodreads  

Synopsis:
Liv never expected to find herself trapped in a dark alley facing a band of rough bikers. And she certainly never expected to see him again. Back in college when they dated, he was heir to his family’s business empire–and their fortune. She expected him to become a billionaire. Instead, he’s the heavily muscled, tattooed member of a rough biker gang…and just as sinfully sexy as ever.

When Shock sees Liv again, he’s ready to pay any price to have her in his bed and on his bike. Shock has his own scars to deal with, but he soon learns that Liv is in desperate need of financial help, though she won’t tell him why. So he offers her a sensual deal: his help for her complete submission. Can Liv entrust Shock with her secret…and how can she stop herself from falling for the hard rider?

This is part one of HARD RIDE, a three part novel.

Excerpt:
Shock led her to a big Harley and handed her a black helmet.  She pulled it on and stared at the bike.

“Get on,” he said.

She frowned, unsure how to do it with a dress on.  Before she could pick her strategy, he encircled her waist with his big hands and lifted her onto the bike.  Her thighs were spread wide, hugging the black leather seat, and she quickly smoothed her skirt over herself, afraid he’d gotten a glimpse of her pink lace panties.  Her cheeks flushed and she realized she was being ridiculous.  They were both adults . . . and they were just panties.

Shock grabbed a black leather jacket and helmet and pulled them on, then mounted the bike in front of her.  He settled his big body between her legs, the warmth of him against her inner thighs sending her senses reeling.

“Put your arms around me.”

“What?”

He glanced over his shoulder.  “You have to hold on to me.”

“Oh, right.  Sorry.”  She slid her arms around his waist, her hands resting lightly on the leather of his jacket as she tried not to actually make contact with him.

He pressed her hands tight against his stomach. The feel of his hard muscles under her fingertips, even through the warm leather, sent heat fluttering through her.

“You have to actually touch me to hold on.  You don’t want to fall off the bike and onto your ass, do you?”  He grinned.  “If that happened, then you’d be flashing those pink panties of yours to the world.”

Her cheeks flushed even hotter.

Then the engine started and the bike shot forward.  She sucked in a breath and tightened her hold on him, afraid her ass would land on the pavement.  When he turned onto another road, she rested her head against his back, clinging to him as the bike leaned to the side.

The feel of the supple leather against her cheek, the manly smell of it, filled her with longing.

As she clung to him, she wondered what had happened to him since she’d known him in college—whether his situation had changed or he was just defying his family. But there was no denying that he was earthier. And more rugged.

And at the same time totally intimidating with his badass clothes and his biker attitude.  Which, she admitted, was a big part of why she was filled with yearning.

She knew him, but she didn’t.  Which made him a mystery.

They left the downtown area and traveled along the quiet highway.  She lived on the outskirts in a low-rent building on the bus line.  She heard the sound of engines behind them.  She glanced back to see other bikers following them.  She noticed Shock glancing in his mirror, his expression drawn tight.

He turned on a side road and one of the bikes pulled up alongside them, then another pulled up on their other side.  She thought it might be Shock’s friends, but there were four in all.  Suddenly the bikes pulled ahead, and the two behind them pulled beside them.  The bikes slowed and swerved to the right.  Shock tried to pull away from them, but they surrounded the bike and forced him off the road.

“What the fuck are you doing?” Shock shouted as he stopped the bike.

But two of the men grabbed his arms and pulled him from the motorcycle, and she felt a third slide his arm around her waist and pull her roughly from the seat.

“So this guy is good enough for you, but not us?”

Her gaze shot to the owner of the voice.  It was Crow from the bar.  And she now recognized the others, who had pulled off their helmets, as the guys who had been with him at the bar.

It took all three of Crow’s men to restrain Shock as Crow grabbed her arm and pulled her off the side of the road.  Liv was terrified as he dragged her toward some trees.  The others dragged Shock along with them.

Her captor backed her against a tree and leered at her, his tight grasp on her arm biting into her flesh.  He grabbed the neckline of her dress and she gasped as he tore it open, revealing her pink lace bra, her breasts swelling from the top.

He pushed her shoulders back, forcing her against the rough tree bark, his dark, weasel-like eyes locked on the swell of her bosom.  His sour beer breath washing across her face, paired with her debilitating fear, sent her stomach into somersaults.Suddenly, she heard a growl and a thud, then a heavy thump.  She glanced around just in time to see one man on the ground and Shock’s fist connecting with the jaw of the other one.  The third man rushed him from behind, but Shock turned and flipped him onto the grass.  With all three men on the ground, he kicked the first, who was starting to get up, in the ribs, then stormed in her direction.

“You get your fucking hands off her.”  Shock’s voice was intimidating and dangerous

 

Hi. I'm Opal Carew, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. I write erotic romance for St. Martin's Press and Samhain Publishing, and I self-publish stories. I also write romance as Amber Carew.

So why do I like writing erotic romance? I like being able to push beyond traditional boundaries. I like dealing with a female character who is growing and evolving - questioning her sexual boundaries and pushing past them. My stories usually include menage a trois. It is great fun to write a heroine choosing between two equally appealing heroes... or more.

These aren't women who just jump into bed with anyone. They find themselves in an unusual situation - something exciting and erotic - but a situation where they have to push themselves beyond their comfort level. As a result, they grow as a person. So often fear holds us back - of what others will think of us, of what we will think about ourselves - and we don't follow our hearts. These women push past that fear.
