Welcome to today’s stop on the blog tour for Everything I Left Unsaid by M. O’Keefe! You can check out my review for this fascinating, entertaining book here!

M. O’Keefe’s Top Eight Favorite Cliffhangers

Man, I love a good cliffhanger, that giddy but slack-jawed feeling that comes when you think you have a book figured out and then WHAM! The doors get blown off. And a good cliffhanger is a tough thing to create – it has to be shocking but not so shocking as to be unbelievable. You want readers to fumble for their keys or their computer so they can quickly go and get the next book. You definitely don’t want readers to throw books at the wall and write hate mail.

Fine line, very fine line.

My book Everything I Left Unsaid has a cliffhanger, a doozy of one and I really hope no one is throwing their books at the wall.

In honor of that here’s my list of favorite cliffhangers.

  1. The Captive Prince by CS Pacat – I’m waiting for the third book right now and I honestly don’t know what to believe. Is Laurent manipulating everything? Or are his feelings real? WHAT IS HAPPENING?
  2. A Dance with Dragons  by George R. R. Martin – Jon Snow NOOOOOOOOOOO!
  3. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simmons. I don’t want to tell you how much money I spent for a foreign English language edition of the second book because it was going to be printed in Canada for another year. All because I HAD TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO ALEX!
  4. The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning – this was one of the best reading experiences of my life. We were coming home from a cottage and I was reading the third book (I’d read the first two at the cottage – ignoring everything except Barrons) in the series and I made my husband pull over so I could use the wi-fi at a Starbucks so I could download the next one.
  5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – this series broke the mold. I might have pretended to be sick when the third book was released.
  6. One Week Girlfriend by Monica Murphy – I love Monica’s writing. I love her characters and like many romance readers I gobbled this  series up.
  7. Shari Slade had a serial running in her newsletter that was utterly addictive – so many cliffhangers, so much gritty wrongness – I love it. The Serial is The Devil’s Host MC – go check it out!
  8. The entire Outlander series  – I feel like I should reread the series now because I can imagine Sam Heughan as Jamie and that makes all the wondering and the angst even more powerful!

How about you? Which are your favorite cliffhangers? Or do you hate them?

Fans of Jodi Ellen Malpas, K. Bromberg, and Joanna Wylde will be unable to resist this sexy, deeply intimate tale of a woman running from her past, and the darkly mysterious man who sets her free.

I didn’t think answering someone else’s cellphone would change my life. But the stranger with the low, deep voice on the other end of the line tempted me, awakened my body, set me on fire. He was looking for someone else. Instead he found me.

And I found a hot, secret world where I felt alive for the first time.

His name was Dylan, and, strangely, he made me feel safe. Desired. Compelled. Every dark thing he asked me to do, I did. Without question. I longed to meet him, but we were both keeping secrets. And mine were dangerous. If I took the first step, if I got closer to Dylan—emotionally, physically—then I wouldn’t be hiding anymore. I would be exposed, with nothing left to surrender but the truth. And my truth could hurt us both.

about the author button

Molly O’Keefe has always known she wanted to be a writer (except when she wanted to be a florist or a chef and the brief period of time when she considered being a cowgirl). And once she got her hands on some romances, she knew exactly what she wanted to write.

She published her first Harlequin romance at age 25 and hasn’t looked back. She loves exploring every character’s road towards happily ever after.

Originally from a small town outside of Chicago, she went to university in St. Louis where she met and fell in love with the editor of her school newspaper. They followed each other around the world for several years and finally got married and settled down in Toronto, Ontario. They welcomed their son into their family in 2006, and their daughter in 2008. When she’s not at the park or cleaning up the toy room, Molly is working hard on her next novel, trying to exercise, stalking Tina Fey on the internet and dreaming of the day she can finish a cup of coffee without interruption.

Blog Tour + Top 10 List & Giveaway: Searching for Always by Jennifer Probst

Searching for Always tour banner

Welcome to today’s stop on the blog tour for Searching for Always by Jennifer Probst! We have Jennifer here today with her top ten uniforms on a man!

The Top Ten Hottest Uniforms on a Man

So, let’s talk uniforms.

There’s nothing as drool worthy as a hot guy in a uniform. Half of the fun of writing about my cop, Officer Stone Petty, was imagining him in his dark navy blues, gun bolt strapped around his hips, cuffs in his back pocket, badge displayed across his broad chest…okay, I need to stop now.

I thought it would be fun to talk about our favorite type of uniforms we love our heroes to wear in our romance books.

Here’s mine – please make sure you add whatever I”ve missed to the comment section!

  1. Policeman – please Arrest me officer!  (there’s a great cop stripper scene in Searching for Always – check it out!)
  2. Fireman – hose me down now!
  3. UPS – I love your package!
  4. Military –completely drool worthy
  5. Doctor – scrubs are HOT
  6. Judge – love the robes –  think young lawyer – not elderly Supreme court justice hahah!
  7. Lifeguard – blow my whistle please!
  8. Chef – that white hat makes my knees go weak
  9. Pilot – fly me to the moon!
  10. Stripper – what? You don’t think strippers have uniforms? They do, and it’s called the G-string. Bring it!

Name your favorite type of uniform your romance hero wears!

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Probst sparks a blissful mind-body connection as her “sexy, satisfying” (Kirkus Reviews) new series continues!

She’s an expert in helping others de-stress, but Arilyn Meadows is running on fumes. Along with her job counseling singles seeking soul mates at the Kinnections agency in Verily, New York, she’s a yoga teacher, animal shelter volunteer, anger management therapist, and helping hand to her beloved grandfather. No time to find Mr. Right—but after discovering her yogi boyfriend in a compromising asana, Arilyn would rather dog-sit for her honeymooning friend Kate than risk her heart on another downward dog. And when police officer Stone Petty—radiating masculinity and bad-boy attitude—is sent to her for mandatory lessons in cooling off when the job gets too hot, Arilyn vows to ignore his seductive glances and sexy grin. But there’s no halting their sizzling flirtation—a red-hot, high-speed chase that’s breaking all the limits.

*****THIS BOOK CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE*****

Being the daughter of a big-city mayor, twenty-one year old Skye Summers has giant shoes to fill in her first real job out of college. With the public spotlight on her family, and her dad’s expectations running high, she jumps at the chance to work side-by-side on an important project with her sexy new boss.

Playboy entrepreneur Landon Steele has built a successful entertainment PR firm and broken more than a few hearts along the way. He’s counting on his enthusiastic new assistant to help him expand his business into LA… until he discovers she’s a pampered rich girl who’s in the public spotlight as much as his famous clients. Still, he agrees to give her a chance, and soon the two are heating up the bedroom as well as the boardroom.

But when Skye’s ex-boyfriend threatens to reveal a dangerous secret from her past, her job, relationship with Landon, and her father’s career are suddenly all on the line. Will she be forced to leave Landon? Or will she pursue her heart, regardless of the cost?
