An Eraser Poem Giveaway ~ Thank you AJ Summer!

The best part of this writing journey for me so far has been the 'meeting of minds'. I have made friends all over the world with authors, bloggers and readers, since I first decided to publish, without having physically met a single one. The other day, I got a lovely surprise gift from an author friend of mine. She read and enjoyed my erotic novella Eraser so much that she was inspired to write a poem about it. I am so blessed to be able to share this with you all.
A book that stole my mind...

Dream me, see me.
You will never know me.

Whip her, strip her.
Make her scream for SIR.

Mystery man, expensive drinks.
I demand to be ALL Mackenzie thinks.

Take you, give you more,
It's a sweet torture you adore.

Whimper for me, whisper in my ear
All those wicked things I long to hear.

Sweetest moan, crying strings
Flutter gentle papillon wings.

Intrigue you, tease you.
In desire I will see you through.

Blindfolded and tie bound.
In my mind delicious kink to be found.

Bite you, scar you.
I aim to break you.

Try you, Taste me,
You can never Erase me.

My rules, my game.
I know you wish, you knew my name!

A poem by AJ Summer,
Author of Guard My Heart

If you have read Eraser you will understand the significance this poem holds. (FYI, if you haven't read it you can get it for only 99c, what's stopping you? LOL)

I feel so honoured that this poetry was written about a story that I wrote! If you like this small taste of AJ's writing, be sure to grab yourself a copy of her book, Guard My Heart. You can check out my review here and download your copy here:

I truly think this is an author to watch out for. She deserves some recognition. I'm a firm believer in paying it forward and as a thank you to this amazingly talented author I want to share some love. Enter this giveaway for your chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card. Shh, AJ doesn't know about this, so don't tell her...

How to Liv Excerpt

The light was dimming around us but when I pulled from his embrace, I could still see the light and the love in his eyes.  I could also see the fear, fear that he had lost me, fear that he could lose me still.  I stood, mesmerised by him.  It began to rain.  Droplets ran down his face and dripped off the end of his nose.  I couldn’t decipher which were tears and which were raindrops, but by the timbre in his voice and the shaking of his shoulders I’d guess it was about even.

“Liv, please tell me that we can work past this.  Please.  I feel like I can’t breathe without you.”

Happy Valentine's Day!

Joel from How to Liv is a pretty romantic guy.  He writes little notes like this to Liv on a regular basis:

Have you met these two yet?  Be sure to get yourself a copy today.  Only on Amazon.

Not to be outdone by Joel.  Eraser’s Sir has sent a little something to Mackenzie for Valentine’s Day...

Valentine’s Day.  It had been such a busy night and Mackenzie was relieved to be finishing soon.  She could hardly wait for the next ten minutes to pass.  She watched the last clients filter out the door and another man enter, this one she recognised, Sir’s driver.  He was carrying a long white box which he silently passed to her.  She placed it on top of the hardwood bar and lifted the lid to expose the most exquisite, long-stemmed, deep pink, gloriosa flower, encased in white tissue paper.  There was a gold envelope beside it.  She slid a small card from the envelope and read the impossibly neat, perfectly impeccable handwriting.

Oh yes, she couldn’t wait to finish work!

Yep, he’s romantic alright!  Haven’t read Eraser?  Grab yourself a copy today!
Still only 99c

♥ Synopsis ♥

Grace Rivers is your everyday twenty-five year old. She could have the world at her feet, but instead chooses to help run the family business. After experiencing great loss early in her life, Grace values what's most important: her family and friends. But she aches to find that certain someone—that one great, passionate love who values family as much as she does.

Cole Tierney loves his life. He has a wonderful family, a loyal best friend and a successful career as an ER doctor. The only downside is he wants someone to share it with. After being used and left heartbroken, he wants to find someone who will love him for him and not his or his family's status.

"Every beat my heart makes is for you. Every time it beats faster it's because of you—because you're near me, because of your smile—because you take my breath away."

Their two hearts collide by chance and an undeniable connection is quickly made. But when others are plotting against their happiness, will their love flatline, or will the rhythm of their hearts continue to beat as one?

♥ Author Bio ♥

Velvet Reed is the pen name of an avid book lover, reviewer and blogger who has turned writer.

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia; she is a city girl at heart but loves the laid back lifestyle of living in country New South Wales. Married to her first and only love, she is a devoted mother of three who juggles her very active children and their many extracurricular activities, working in the middle of the night, running a blog, and writing.

Velvet's love of reading was realised only 3 short years ago after the death of her amazing father. She used the escape into the fictional world to help her through her grief and post natal depression, not releasing the great impact so many talented authors would have on her life.

The Rhythm of my Heart is her debut novel and book one in The Heart Series.
