Aphrodite’s Closet!! Cover Reveal for @Suzy_Turner

What a title! Right? I bet you did a double-take, like I did. I bet you’re already intrigued, like I was! So sit back and grab a cuppa while you take in the tantalising blurb for Suzy Turner’s next novel, and take a look at the awesome cover. Oh, and tell us what you think! Don’t forget! Ready?

Aphrodite’s Closet

Agatha Trout didn’t even know she had a Great Aunt Petunia, so imagine her surprise when she finds Petunia left her a corner shop in her will. But it’s not just any old corner shop—it’s a corner shop that needs something unique, something the town of Frambleberry has never seen before. Influenced by her confident best friend, Coco, Agatha is soon convinced that there’s only one way to go: an adults-only sex shop.

While some of the townspeople are clutching their pearls in horror, others are open to the new experiences this shop offers. But not everyone in Frambleberry is convinced. Will the women soldier on in the face of violent threats or will their fears get the best of them—and their new venture—before it even gets off the ground?

Release day for LOVE BLEEDS BLUE by @EmmaCalin

It gives me the greatest pleasure to welcome the amazing Emma Calin on my blog today as she announces the release of the third novel in her ‘Passion Patrol’ series: ‘LOVE BLEEDS BLUE’.

Launch graphic blog

Firmly in the ‘suspense romance’ genre,  this story features another sassy female hero-cop who is as passionate about her job as she is about the love in her life. Each Passion Patrol novel can be read as a stand-alone story although characters from previous stories make cameo appearances across the series.

Book Title:

LOVE BLEEDS BLUE  by Emma Calin. A stand-alone fast-moving action adventure with a love story at its core. The third novel in the Passion Patrol Series, featuring hot cops, hot crime and hot romance.

Blurb:

A London girl cop, a violent political crisis, an instant decision. One moment of courage to catch the destiny of history.

When single mother Sergeant Sophia Castellana stumbles into a terrorist shooting, things are not as they seem. Global forces beyond her grasp sweep her up into an audacious scheme to re-unite a world in chaos. The love of a far younger man, the infatuation of a charismatic woman leader seduce her into a blur of inappropriate love and infinite danger. Power and celebrity beckon, betrayal and violence threaten every move as events unfold in the city of Paris. Her brute courage and loving woman’s heart confront ruthless enemies who offer no second chances. She knows the streets, she knows her power as a lover. Can she, dare she seize the prizes before her? Will a world offer her the choice?

DEAD HOPE releases! #Thriller #Suspense #Kindle

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t somewhat overwhelmed to be releasing my eighth book today. When I launched my first novel onto the world, I didn’t dare dream that six years later, I’d have produced seven more books. And yet here I am. Hooray!

dead-hope-delivery

Although this isn’t perhaps quite the genre you might expect from me. DEAD HOPE is a thriller, a fusion of crime, suspense and yes, a touch of romance. I suppose it was inevitable that I’d go down this road eventually, given that I read crime and thrillers by the truckload; but for those of you who know the funny, dreamy, romantic side of me and my writing, this may be a surprise. But don’t be deterred, this is still me writing. You’ll recognise my voice and my lovely light touch at every step of the way, and I promise the story will draw you in and pull you along just the same.

DEAD HOPE was a real labour of love. (How’s that for irony?) The experience of writing this book was a bit like being told at your twenty week scan that you’ll be having a girl and then delivering a boy, kicking and screaming. Conceived under the title “Deep Cover”, this novel was born as a romantic comedy: what happens if you take the rock star out of his glamorous habitat and throw him in the real world with no money (or at least not very much), no perks, no music, and a normal nine-to-five job?

And yet what emerged, after many a transformation, was a thriller, a suspense, a crime novel that doesn’t feature a male rock star but instead focuses on the plight of the daughter of a rock star couple (I like my unexpected twists!). And the comedy was subsumed by the urgent desire to find out what happened to the rock daughter’s parents nearly two decades ago.

It was interesting and challenging to write this book. I researched a lot of things about the police system, the court system, sentences, and forensics, all in the name of bringing you the best, most plausible story I could possibly put together. And here it is, today, the result: DEAD HOPE!

dead-hope-nicky-wells

Cat Hope doesn’t want to go to prison. She needs a job, and she needs it fast: judge’s orders.

Kay Mahon, office worker by day and hacker by night, is on the run from a past life that he’d rather not remember.

When their paths cross, they begin to investigate the truth behind the deaths of Cat’s parents, the successful rock star couple Jackie and Adam Hope. Little do they know that their quest is putting Cat in grave danger.

And here’s the sales stuff:

Paperback: UK | US

Kindle: UK | US

And the really good news is that DEAD HOPE is on an introductory offer of only 99p/99c on Kindle!! So why not go grab your copy right now?

And last but not least: THANK YOU!

Yes, indeed. Thank YOU! If it weren’t for you and your imagination giving my stories pictures and wings, then there wouldn’t be any point in me writing them. I’m thrilled (see what I did there?) that you’re part of my journey, and I thank you for coming along for the ride. I hope you enjoy, and I’d love to hear what you think of DEAD HOPE. 🙂

The awesome pre-launch giveaway of TWO signed paperbacks of DEAD HOPE!

Cat Hope doesn’t want to go to prison. She needs a job, and she needs it fast: judge’s orders.

Kay Mahon, office worker by day and hacker by night, is on the run from a past life that he’d rather not remember.

Are you hooked? Well, that’s great news, because I’ve just treated you to a preview of the blurb for my upcoming release, my amazing new thriller/suspense titled DEAD HOPE. And I’m terrifically excited about this new release, not only because it seems a long time since I last shouted about a brand new Nicky Wells book, but also because it shows you the results of a completely new and quite different journey for me: a gentle venture into the dark and murky world of thrillers, of crime, of psychological drama, not to mention trauma. But of course, it is still me who wrote this book, so you’ll find a touch of romance and definitely a positive outlook in the story. Because you know me: I’m a glass-half-full-kinda girl.

Release day for DEAD HOPE is 23 February 2017, which is only 16 short days away. But now that I’ve got you hooked, it would be unfair to simply make you wait. So instead, you can enter a giveaway to win one of two signed paperbacks of DEAD HOPE, and you can enter right now. Just hop on over to Goodreads and sign up.
