When Willow Harden arrives at Tate Kingston’s island castle for her housekeeper job, she finds her temperamental boss isn’t just an enigmatic author living in self-imposed exile—he’s an attractive flesh-and-blood man. Soon she’s thinking less about her mission to uncover his family’s secrets than about being under his covers. Until an unplanned pregnancy sets them on a collision course with destiny…

EXCERPT

Sabatini House. Finally.

Willow stared up at the imposing, impressive castle-like residence through the windshield of her car. The thunderstorm raging around it was only appropriate. A structure as mysterious and unique as Sabatini House deserved an atmospheric introduction.

Unfortunately, since the owner hadn’t answered the intercom when she’d stopped at the gates, Willow now had to figure out how to get inside. It took concentrated effort to relax her fingers on the steering wheel.

The rain pounded her little car, at times completely obscuring the view. Willow had been fascinated with Sabatini House for several years, since she’d discovered mention of its owners, the Kingston family, in her great-grandmother’s journals. But they contained very little about its history, which had only whetted her appetite for more.

According to the rare articles she’d found about the house since then, it was said to have been built by a Spanish pirate for his lover. It featured underground caves that allowed the ocean to actually flow underneath the house to create a swimming cove. In her journal, Willow’s great-grandmother had described the cave from her one and only time sneaking into a party in the house, declaring it a truly magical tie between the land and the sea. As a descendant of pirates herself, that would be something her great-grandmother would have appreciated.

From the outside it still looked like a magnificent castle, with turrets and peaks and arched windows. But Willow was dying for a glimpse of the inside. She hadn’t been able to find any photos or documentation in her research. The current reclusive owner had never allowed anyone else inside besides his caretaker, Murdoch Evans, and the occasional trusted workman.

Until today.

Taking a deep breath, Willow pulled her raincoat around her as best she could. There wasn’t any point feeling wimpy about the rain. She needed to get inside. The sooner she settled in, the sooner she could start looking for clues. As much as the house fascinated her, the secrets it held were what truly drew her here. Secrets about the Kingstons, and one fateful night generations ago, that could change her own history forever.

My Sexy Saturday: BEHIND THE SCARS

Love letters don’t have to be words on the page… The heroine of my newest release, BEHIND THE SCARS, is a sculptor. And what she shows the hero on a page goes far beyond words to the soul-deep scars that they both hide.

Behind the Scars, Dani Wade, sexy romantic suspense, small town secrets series, southern romance

“Can I show you something?” she asked.

Daire’s heartbeat kicked up a notch. This wasn’t a casual question. Her tentative tone spoke volumes about the importance of what she was asking. Was he ready for whatever it was? “Sure.”

Kate didn’t move for a minute, then ducked her chin and walked back to the center table. Her hand rested on the oversized drawing pad there, the tablet Daire thought had gone unused since she’d been here. Had he been wrong?

Gingerly, tentatively, she slid her thumb beneath the cover then lifted it open. For a moment Daire didn’t look down, but instead studied her face for hints about what he would see. Her almost impassive features told him just how important this was to her, along with the utter stillness of her body. She waited for his judgment. His opinion.

He let his gaze fall, startled to see his own face staring up at him. For some reason, it had never occurred to him that Kate would sketch him. It should have, but it didn’t. Multiple pictures of his face filled the page, some from different angles, some half finished.

She turned another page over, showing him the next set of drawings. His body from the front, with the head, without it. Him crouching. Him braced. His back—

There his breath caught, because the details were missing. He wasn’t sure what his back looked like now, other than cursory glances over his shoulder into a mirror—he almost didn’t want to know. He’d distanced himself from that part of his body in a way that was probably unhealthy, but necessary for now. But as he saw the lack of anything but an outline, he had the sudden urge to trace the space with his fingertip. To explore the page to see if it were true—that he could return to the time when the scars didn’t exist. Even though he knew it would never be an option.

“Would you model for me?”

BEHIND THE SCARS, Small Town Secrets Book 2, is available now on Amazon for only 99 cents for a limited time!

Blurb for BEHIND THE SCARS:

Everyone in a small town has secrets, but Kate McIntyre’s have followed her home.

When a student’s admiration for her takes a dark turn, Kate turns to a hometown hero for help and protection. Ex-Green Beret Daire Rousseau knows the face of evil all too well–and he’ll do anything to keep it from this pretty redhead. Can they trust each other to look behind the scars that define them?

Kate McIntyre, college art teacher and sculptor, holds people at a distance. That’s how she copes with her internal and external scars, after a car wreck that left her fighting for her life. Art is her only outlet for sensuality–until Daire returns to Cadence, TN.

She’s shocked by how much she wants the sexy, silent veteran, and crushed when after one drunken embrace, he pushes her away. But when she realizes she has a stalker, Daire is the man she wants at her side.

Daire Rousseau may have been born to wealth, but he grew up a loner, shuffled off to boarding schools after his mother’s death. He joined the Army to prove he was more a man than his father, and found a close-knit band of brothers. But after being captured and tortured by the enemy, he’s fighting a new war–battling to get back to the man he was. And afraid his scars will never let him forget. Convinced his battered body and psyche will repulse an innocent beauty like Kate, he pushes her away. Until the only way to keep her safe is to stay by her side day and night.

BEHIND THE SCARS Release Day

I grew up in a small town in Tennessee. It was a farming community where everyone knew everyone – big players and small. In school, everyone knew what family and family type you were from. And when something exciting happened – fabulous or scandalous – everyone heard about it within a matter of hours…and had some kind of comment on the matter.

Kate McIntyre, the heroine of BEHIND THE SCARS, has experienced that fall out recently. After the sex scandal that rocked her family’s world, she’s eager to keep her secrets to herself.

Everyone in a small town has secrets, but Kate McIntyre’s have followed her home.

Daire Rousseau grew up in Cadence, but has never really felt at home here despite his sprawling family estate and ties to the town’s heavy hitters. His secrets are buried in confidential military files he hopes never to relive again – every night in his dreams is bad enough. Kate is a sexy challenge that distracts him from his demons. Until a new horror is unleashed in their cozy community.

When a student’s admiration for her takes a dark turn, Kate turns to a hometown hero for help and protection.

Goin’ Out Solo Release Day & Giveaway

The latest installment from the Backstage Pass series is a story I couldn’t resist writing. These characters have called to me from the beginning, and I hope you delve into their story as deeply as I did!

Rock star Nate Hawthorne’s good-guy status is as iconic as his black cowboy hat, despite his personal struggles. Now faced with his own mortality, he must choose whether to continue being the good friend, the good band mate…or risk being very, very bad.

Sara Drayton has overcome a nightmare childhood to stand on her own merits, even if her overprotective brother can’t see it. Nate has been her forbidden fantasy for years. Now he’s offering her a no-strings weekend at his cabin to fulfill all her desires – except her wish to be his forever.

Nate knows he’s breaking the rules by taking Sara to bed, but he’s desperate for the peace he can only find through her touch. With death on the horizon, can forbidden love bring one man back from the brink of an uncertain future?

For today’s release, I’ll let you in on a little secret: I focus a lot on my heroes, but all of my heroines have a little something in common with me.  For Sara, its her organizational skills—AKA lists. Lots and lots of lists. Hope you enjoy this one:

1. Sara Drayton isn’t a spontaneous woman. She’s driven, creative, and organized. But she won’t pass up the once-in-a-lifetime chance to spend the weekend in Nate Hawthorne’s bed.

2. Sara’s theme song for this book is Show Me Love.

3. Nate has been haunting my brain since I finish Book 1 (Finding Her Rhythm).

4. Nate’s theme song for this book is Not My Time.

5. Nate and Sara both had very different childhood issues, but they handled it exactly the same: being good. Not causing problems or worries for those around them.

6. Sara is Jake’s sister, Solar Uprising’s stage manager.

7. Jake has a very difficult road ahead of him, now that his sister has found her independence.

Goin' Out Solo, Backstage Pass Series, rock star romance8. The cover for this story was a long time in the making, because I couldn’t find the right pictures to fit the feel of the story. My cover artist, Elizabeth Wallace, did an excellent job (and showed a lot of patience).

9. This story is a little different than the other 3 in the series—it doesn’t have a suspense element running through it.

10. I’ve got a simple contest going on over the next few weeks. Why? I just love to make readers smile. Just follow this link and enter to win a $25 gift card to Amazon or B&N. I’ll choose a random winner on July 15th! Easy peasy.

 

GOIN’ OUT SOLO is live on Amazon and B&N today for only 99 cents. And while I’d love for you to grab the other books, SOLO is easy to read as a stand-alone too! So what are you waiting for??? Buy it and enter the contest today!

ART-Join Today!

It’s almost time! Goin’ Out Solo, Backstage Pass Bk 4, is about to go up for pre-order—but there’s a very special chance for you to read it and all my other books early! Check it out!

Advanced Reading Team, romance readers

I’m offering a few select readers the chance to read these books early! I have my very own Advanced Review Team, and I’d love for you to be a part. That means you’d get the chance to read my upcoming books BEFORE RELEASE DAY! All I ask is that you leave an honest review of the book on Amazon (and any other review sites you frequent) on the actual release day.

Does the thought of free books pique your interest?

Well, here’s what you do:

  1. Sign up for my newsletter (if you haven’t already).

Snow Bound, Small Town Secrets, novella, romance, cover artistOnly newsletter members are eligible for this special opportunity. I assume if you’re interested in my books, you’re interested in information on upcoming releases and events. Newsletter members only receive an email every 4 to 6 weeks, so no spamming. (P.S. Joining my newsletter means getting a FREE novella too—SNOW BOUND, part of my Small Town Secrets series.)

 

  1. Then send an email to readdaniwade (at) gmail.com with the subject: Advance Reading Team.

In the body of the email, tell me why you would like to join and what type of my books you’d like to read. ART members have the option of reading my sexy suspense books, my contemporary romances (Harlequin Desires), OR BOTH. Your choice! Also tell me what file type you need and your address for surprises from me.

That’s it! Easy peasy. All I ask is that you be willing to read and honestly review my books.

What happens after you join?

  1. I will send out an email when a new release is scheduled.
  1. I’ll send an ARC of the book approximately 2-3 weeks before the release day.
  1. You get to read it! Yay!
  1. I’ll send you a final email the day before the book releases. This is a reminder e-mail to let you know your review should be posted to Amazon and any other e-book retailers or sites you feel comfortable posting to (Goodreads, B&N, etc.), on one of the following 5 days. You can even write it ahead of time and have it ready to copy and paste on release day.
  1. ART members may also get exclusive access to some content or special surprises. You’ll have to join to see…

 

That’s it!

Does this mean I expect all 5 star reviews? No. No everyone will love my books (though I hope you actually like them if you sign up), and not everyone will enjoy all my books equally. As a life-long reader, I completely understand that. It’s another reason why I’m giving readers the option of which of my books they’d like to read. Not everyone loves both those genres.

But reader reviews seriously help a book get noticed on Amazon! It helps other readers know what to anticipate in a story and whether it will fit their reading tastes. The number of reviews can also help authors when we apply for certain promotional opportunities. Every review I get on my books is a blessing—one for which I’m deeply grateful. All I ask is that you be honest, and don’t post any spoilers.

So, are you with me? Readers who join now will get to read the next Backstage Pass book, featuring Nate, in the next few weeks. And another installment of the Small Town Secrets series later this year.

So don’t wait! Send me that email now, and join the team. I can’t wait to get to know you and share special sneak peaks of my upcoming releases!
