Love2ReadRomance

  • Hall Pass is one HOT little tamale! L. Loren wrote a great unique story with Ari and Dallas’ chemistry flaming hot, and her writing pulled me in to make me feel as though I was there inside the story. I loved it and am looking forward to reading more of her work!

Synopsis

Ari’s boyfriend has just granted her a Hall Pass to sleep with Hollywood’s sexiest actor, should the opportunity present itself. When she suddenly gets her big chance to live out her fantasy, things take an unexpected turn.

Dallas Monroe is sick of being labeled a man trophy. He wants desperately to find true love and change his sex symbol image to that of a serious actor. When he runs into PR Rep, Ari Nicole Couture, she will change his life forever.

*I received a copy of this book as a gift from the author*

Almost 400 years ago, the first enslaved Blacks, arrived in the Virginia colony at Point Comfort on the James River. Spanish records suggest that the enslaved were captured in the Portuguese colony of Angola. At first, the number of enslaved taken was small. In about 1650, however, with the development of plantations on the newly colonized Caribbean Islands and American mainland, the trade grew.

But what if things had turned out differently? What if the enslaved could exact immediate vengeance on their oppressors and gain their freedom with help from the ancestors? That is essentially the theme connecting six short stories in Lisa W. Tetting’s short story collection, Southern Horror Stories.

Christmas Kisses Indie Shine – Kellie Hart

Standard

Kellie Shine

Welcome to a special edition of Indie Shine, a place for Rebirthoflisa to shine a ‘spotlight’ on indie artists. Today we are celebrating the Book Release of the much anticipated Christmas Kisses Anthology! We are welcoming a new author each hour as they Takeover the Indies Ink Indie Party Room. Right now we have Kellie Hart! Let’s get started.

Bio

KELLIE HART_FACEBOOK_PROFILE_GLITTERBy day, I am a sedate, however accomplished, young adult novelist. By night, though, I become a foul-mouthed vixen with a penchant for expensive coffee, thrift shop clothing, and bad ‘80s comedy and scifi. (P.S. I really, really like cats, unicorns, and anything that glitters/glows/shits glitter while glowing. Just sayin’.) All in all, morphing into a dispenser of romance is a natural outlet for my talents. Or, so I hope.

Anyway, if I can leave you with anything, ladies, it’s that I took a chance in writing Bombshell (Up-close & Personal Novella No. 1). It’ll either sink or swim. You’ll love it or hate it. But you know what? In the end, I threw a middle finger to the life I knew, and I stepped out on faith that something, anything, could happen from telling Jacque’s story in Bombshell. In telling hers, I kinda sorta told mine, too. So, let’s all take her mama’s advice, shall we?

Just live. Every damn day: LIVE.

-Kellie H<3rt

Q & A 

Why do you write Romance? 
I write romance to *feel.* I’m not an overtly emotional person, and when I step into the shoes of my characters, my heart does this little pitter-patter thing that I love. It’s a high a chase everyday, and writing romance helps me feel it whenever I want!
Tell us about your story in the Christmas Kisses Anthology. 
kellie1My story, Full Monty, in the Christmas Kisses Anthology stars Montague Cotton and Amelia Sherwood, known to me as “Monty and Millie.” Their story begins somewhere between Knockout, the second book in my Up-Close and Personal Series, and Hot Rod, the third installment. Monty and Millie will receive their own sassy, sweet, and sexy story in Fox Trot, coming 2018. These two are wickedly hilarious and perfectly prove that “opposites attract.” Here’s the blurb for “Full Monty:” When naive and quirky Millie Sherwood walks into New Orleans’ most popular strip club on Christmas Eve, she never expects to meet the sexy, smooth talkin’ Monty Cotton. She also doesn’t expect to awake on Christmas morning, in his bed, with no clue as to how she got there. Though nothing happened the night before, Monty is convinced Millie is more than willing to join him on the naughty list. What Monty discovers when he finally gets to unwrap Millie makes him realize she may be the best Christmas gift of all. For Monty and Millie, Santa never comes early. 😉
Who inspires you? 
I am inspired by my own journey, and I don’t say that to be as effin narcissistic as possible. Each of my female leads–Jacquie, Char, Carey, and now Millie–are an extension of my self. For example, Jacquie is a plus-sized suicide girl, like me, and Char suffers from anxiety that comes across as awkward humor, much like myself. Their romantic interests are based on my celebrity crushes. Monty, who stars in Full Monty, was inspired by the fine ass of Dacre Montgomery!
What do you consider your “Masterpiece” at this time? 
My “masterpiece” is Knockout, book two of the Up-Close & Personal Series. I wrote this book based on my own journey with anxiety, and it took me a least twenty drafts to get it just right. Now, I read Char’s story, and I cry because it’s so raw and so funny, and my readers have told me they do the same.
What is your motto in life? 
Just live–it’s a theme running through Bombshell and Knockout especially. We only have so much time, so don’t worry. JUST LIVE.
Name your wildest dream. The one you can not imagine achieving, but would love for it to come true.
I would love to be an author on the level of Colleen Hoover or Alice Clayton. They each are so wild and funny, and they are a reader’s best friend. To live their lives, I can only imagine!
What is your favorite quote?
“It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone.” -Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince
When it is all said and done, what would you like to be remembered for? 
I would love to remembered for my heart. I’m a crusty old bag on the outside, but on the inside, I’m goo… and I love everybody I meet. I really mean that, and I hope when I’m long gone when some asks, “How did Kellie love?” they’ll easily know the answer. (Listen to “How Do You Love?” by Shinedown if you haven’t!)
Tell us about your next project and when will it be available to the public? 
My next novella is HOT ROD, and it hits Amazon on December 19th! I’m so excited for thekellie2 world to Carey and Atticus!! Here’s the blurb for Hot Rod: THE BRITISH INVASION IS HERE, AND HE’S GOT SUPERMAN HAIR. At my best friend’s wedding a few months ago, I laid eyes on the most beautiful man I have ever seen. All dressed up in a tux, he was a sexy Clark Kent wannabe–tall, dark, and handsome. Then, when he opened his mouth, Atticus Sherwood revealed himself to be as British as a fucking crumpet. Yeah, I should’ve taken a bite out of him, but he left before I could nibble his fine English muffin. Now, Atticus is back in New Orleans. Before I know it, his tongue has me screaming the Queen’s name, and my heart is crying out for more than a torrid affair with this bed-breaking Brit. There’s just one little problem: love broke me once before, and I swore to myself I wouldn’t let it happen again. Is taking a leap with Atticus worth the risk? Maybe I just need to trust I’ve finally found my own Superman to catch me when I fall. Thank God he doesn’t come faster than a speeding bullet. 😉

In 6th grade I wanted to be a singer. In high school I wanted to be a lawyer, an astronaut and then a house wife when I thought I was going to marry my high school sweetheart. Then I wanted to be a pilot but found out I was too short to fly. So I decided to become a photographer. When that didn’t work out, I decided to be a writer.
