D&L Charity - Banner

As temperatures begin dipping and nights grow long, we lock ourselves inside our warm houses of an evening, safe with our families, and it’s so easy to forget that there are those out there in need.

With the Christmas period fast approaching, this time of year isn’t always filled with happiness and anticipation for the upcoming celebration.

Author Keri Lake has previously worked to raised funds for charities in need of donations during this season. This year, she approached me about an idea she had, and so this year, I am excited to announce that I’ll be partnering up with her, both as J.A. Belfield, and as my pen name Jenna Lyn Field.

For this year’s donation, Keri and myself are hoping to help make Christmas special for both Detroit (US) and Birmingham (UK) kids.

From now through until Halloween, a percent of sales from Darkness & Light AND Keri’s dark contemporary romance Ricochet will be used to purchase and donate copies of my alter ego’s special edition Christmas coloring book to both Birmingham Children’s Hospital here in the UK AND Detroit Goodfellows in the US from Keri!

Colour Me Funky Christmas Coloring Book contains 25 days of Christmas colouring fun and will make a great gift for all ages!

Buy your own copy in time for Christmas today:

In addition, Keri will also make a donation to her favorite youth shelter, Covenant House, a sanctuary for young people who have nowhere to go.

All donations will be made on behalf of Keri Lake’s Caring Readers and J.A. Belfield’s Hollerers.

Buy or gift a copy of Ricochet or Darkness & Light and support a wonderful cause!

#Giveaway + Blog Tour: Keri Lake’s Ricochet

Title: Ricochet 
Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: July 9, 2015
The only sure way to destroy a man is to take what he cannot live without.
Three years ago, I had everything.
A beautiful wife.
 
A son.
 
A reason for living.
 
Until a ruthless task force, assembled under Mayor Michael Culling, with a brutal strategy to make the streets of Detroit ‘safe’, ripped away everything I loved in a deadly hunt called The Culling.
 
They tried to kill me, too. I wish they had. Now I’m cursed by the memories of that night, and the words I whispered to my dying wife.
A promise—to avenge the wrong and set it right.
 
I’m no longer Nick Ryder. I’m a masked vigilante. Faceless. Loveless. Fearless. A man with nothing left to lose—one who’s seen the dark and violent truth behind the city’s flawless veneer.
Michael Culling doesn’t know who I am. Or what I want. All he knows is that I’ve kidnapped his beautiful wife.
An eye for an eye—isn’t that how the saying goes? And Aubree Culling is the perfect pawn to destroy him.
If she doesn’t destroy me first.

“This book is what would result if The Punisher and V for Vendetta ever had a baby. A super fucked up but incredibly awesome baby.” ~ Dirty Girl Romance

“Holy. Fucking. Hell. Mind is blown and I’m left reeling. I’ve pulled myself together and can now write the review this book deserves.” ~ Sam’s Ramblings

“Ricochet was my first foray into the world of Keri Lake and if I could describe her writing style based on this alone, the words Evil Genius come to mind. ” ~ Smokin’ Hot Book Blog

 Read an excerpt:

With my right hand, I pinned her flailing fist, then released her throat and seized the other. She stilled, flat against the wall, with my body pressed into hers.

“You had everything to do with it.” I pushed harder, my muscles steeled. “He didn’t just wrong me, he annihilated me. And there you were, stroking his cock, smiling beside him all the while.”

“All you saw was a smile, then. You should’ve looked deeper. So what? I’m your revenge? Your ticket to hurting him?” She sneered. “Guess what? He doesn’t give a shit about me. He never did. So, go ahead, Nick. Kill me.” She lifted her head away from the wall, only inches from my face. “Snap my fucking throat, if that’s what you plan to do. You’d be doing him and me a favor.”

Her body pulsed with tension, the tremble beating against me, through me, inside of me. Anger. Hate.

So much hate.

With one quick twist of my hands, I could’ve snapped her neck, been done with the whole plan and exited my miserable fucking existence on the wings of a bullet to my skull.

Instead, I slammed my lips against hers. Loving the struggle of her body trying to push me away. Hating the fact that her lips tasted like sweet salvation, beckoning me to whatever web of deception she’d been weaving since I’d taken her. Her delicious smell pervaded my senses—water on the flames burning inside of me, steaming up my mind.

Three years.

The last time I’d devoured a woman’s lips was three years ago, and that had been out of love. Kissing Aubree was something else entirely. Not gentle or tender. I kissed her violently, with all the fury locked inside of me, our frantic breaths clashing with one another.

Her moan vibrated inside my skull, as her hands clenched to fists, trying to break free from my grasp.

She opened her mouth wider, dragged my lip between her teeth, and bit me.

Aggression surged through my body and rattled the cage of something dark inside of me.

I wanted more. More pain. More rage. I wanted to tear into her while cursing her name. Purge myself of the hate until it was spent.

I broke the kiss, breaths heaving, as I glared down at her. “What do you know about Brightmoor?” I rasped.

“I don’t know anything about Brightmoor,” she gritted out.

Lies. “Yeah? Then, why did you have the fucking blueprints tucked in your purse? Devil’s Night plans safe and sound, beside your goddamn lipstick and compact.”

Her chest rose and fell as I kept her captive against the wall, her stare deadpan. “I didn’t—”

“Don’t lie to me.” I pressed harder, lips to her ear. “I fucking hate liars,” I whispered, inciting a shudder in her that brought a smile to my face. “Why did you have the chip?”

“I stole it.”

“You stole it.” I wanted to laugh at the stupidity of such a thought, but my voice lacked any ounce of humor or inflection. “I don’t think you did, Pistol Lips. I think he gave it to you. His little pet.”

“I fucking hate you.” Venom laced her words as she stared back at me, those golden eyes blazing with vehemence.

I licked my lips and glanced down at her pert breasts, and smiled. Squeezing her captured wrists with one hand, I reached up under her dress, only grazing the patch of lace that kept my finger from being inside of her, knowing everything she was too stubborn to admit.

Her lids turned heavy, as drunken eyes riveted on my lips.

“Tell me how much you hate me.”

“Don’t,” she warned, and I caught the scrape of her tongue across her teeth.

Grabbing a handful of hair, I tugged her head back until her neck stretched taut, and like a creature of night, I wanted to bite down into that supple flesh and rip her throat out. Dragging my tongue along her shoulder, I made my way to the base of her neck and bit her collarbone. She let out a gasp and I released her wrists. Lust blazed through my veins, when her fingers tangled in my hair and her leg curled around my hip, drawing me against her.

“You know what, Aubree? I fucking hate you, too, but goddamn … you taste so good.”

Hell was having her skin against mine and craving her so badly I wanted to crawl out of my own body.

Keri Lake is a married mother of two living in Michigan. By day, she tries to make use of the degrees she’s earned in science. By night, she writes dark contemporary and paranormal romance. Though novels tend to be her focus, she also writes short stories and flash fiction on the many occasions when distraction sucks her in to the Land of Shiny Things.

Come look at the prettiness of Keri Lake’s #Ricochet – #CoverReveal

I’m muchero excited to be able to share this post for my writer bud Ms Lake. Her latest hawt release will be releasing just next month, and if you love your romance with some action and a whole lotta grit, you’ll defo want to be adding this to your to-read pile.
Fun fact: the cover model’s name is Chris, and the model is currently featuring on a UK reality TV show called Love Island. It’s a weird program where singletons are cooped up in a villa in the sun, forced to couple up with someone of the opposite sex, and then have spanners thrown into the works (like, truly a couple of spanners who think they’re God’s gift) and asked to choose all over again.
Anyhoo, that’s not why you’re here. Below is why you’re here, so check it out. ☺
