It’s Thursday (well, technically due to time zones, it’s still Wednesday where I am, so just ignore that fact), and I’m revealing the cover for Lisa N. Paul’s upcoming debut novel, Thursday Nights, which is the first book in The Charistown Series. Thursday Nights will be released on May 13. What’s better is that there’s also an excerpt … and a giveaway! YES!
Cover Design by: Sarah at Okay Creations.
“Pain can leave even the strongest of people weak and hollow Max DeLucca has spent seven years trying to forget the betrayal of his past.
He lives his life from day to day never looking forward and never looking back. The walls around his heart keep anyone from getting too close and prevent him from feeling too much… until he meets her.
Her entire life, Janie Silver searched for the kind of love that wouldn’t leave her broken and more importantly, wouldn’t leave her behind. She longs for a love that can heal the wounds of her past and give her the future she knows she deserves.
She thought she was looking for something that just didn’t exist…until she meets him. Danny’s on Main is where their story begins. A neighborhood bar where strangers become friends, friends become family and some … become lovers
… it all started on Thursday Nights.”
Up for grabs is a $25 Amazon gift card! Awesome, right?!
Please note, this is a contemporary erotic romance, so the content is more explicit.
Removing his hand from her leg, Max placed both hands on the steering wheel of his black Ferrari Spider. Janie held in the whimper that threatened to escape from the loss of his touch.
Max pulled over to the side of the road, and she felt the butterflies once again trying to take flight. Why was he stopping? Had he changed his mind?
“Janie,” he said, his voice strong but calm. “Janie, look at me. I need to see your eyes.”
She looked into his grassy-green orbs. Callused fingers stroked her jaw, sending shivers through her body. “I won’t hurt you. Your body is safe with me. Do you understand?”
She wasn’t sure she did, but she nodded silently, the innocent, doe-eyed look on her face bringing out his every possessive instinct.
“Words Janie, I need words,” Max demanded.
“I think I understand, Max.” She couldn’t help the breathless tone in her voice. “But what is this about?”
He inhaled, holding the air in his lungs for an extra second before letting it go, his eyes smoldering while his body still held the relaxed pose that had become so familiar to her. She could hear her own heart beating, and she could also hear it stop when the next statement left Max’s lips.
“I intend to f**k you tonight, Janie. I intend to f**k you very well. I am going to make you come in every way imaginable. With my fingers, my tongue, and my c*ck. I am going to do things to you that you and Lyla have only teased about at Danny’s, things that you have fantasized about, and things that have never even crossed your mind. You will have a say in whether or not we stop, but Janie, you will not have a say on whether it is your place or mine.
She stared at Max her mouth formed an O. She was thoroughly and truly speechless. So she nodded again.
“Words, Janie. I need words.”
“Ok,” Her heartbeat started speeding up again as Max’s car did the same.
