Guest Post by Nicole Zoltack


Today I am proud to have a guest post by Nicole Zoltack about Masks which is perfect because her amazing book Masked Love released this week!  Nicole is one of my favorite up and coming authors so she's definitely someone to look out for.  So without further ado, her post: 

Masks

Masks. We all wear them at times. Maybe we’re afraid of letting the world see us for who we are. Or maybe we’re trying to hide away. Pretend we’re someone else, someone mysterious and beautiful and more alluring.
At a masquerade ball, though, everyone is wearing a visible mask. When Lady Theodosia brings her handmaiden Isabelle to the ball, Isabelle hides behind her mask. She feels so out of place there. She sees the servants there, ignoring the partygoers and even runs away after a man talks to her.
But when second man who approaches her, Isabelle has gotten a little more comfortable with her mask, and she starts to speak her mind, something she never has the chance to do as a lowly servant. Instead of hiding away as she has most of her life, Isabelle shows herself. She even shows her face to the man, Lord Adrian, at the end of the night, baring her face and soul in that moment, stripping away any mask she might have worn.
She never thought she’d see him again.
She thought wrong.
Revealing herself just might cost Isabelle her job and leave her homeless days before Christmas.
But, knowing Isabelle, if she had the chance to do it all over again, she would.
Have you ever worn a mask to a party? What did it look like? If not, what kind of mask would you wear? 
I haven’t, (yet! Would love to have an excuse to) but I would love to wear a mask similar to the one of the cover of MASKED LOVE. I think it’s beautiful!


Wasn't that great?  Want to learn more about Nicole's book?  Read on.

Isabelle is content being a maid, and will do anything for her lady, even accompany her to a masquerade ball. Lady Theodosia needs extra support and encouragement on this night, for tomorrow she will meet the man her parents have pledged her to.
Isabelle has never had occasion to attend such an event, and is at first ill at ease. But meeting an enchanting young man during the course of the evening makes her wish for a life she can never have. Thinking she will never see him again, she returns his flirtation and even reveals her face. Imagine her shock when he shows up the next morning, announcing his claim on Lady Thedosia.
Isabelle does all she can to avoid Lord Adrian Wingave, but then he not only sees her, he recognizes her. To make matters worse, Isabelle fears her feelings are not one-sided. Torn between duty and desire, Isabelle hopes for something more this Christmas.

Cover Reveal Juliana Haygert's PLAYING PRETEND

Playing Pretend
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance

Word Count: 65,000
Release date: March 2014
Cover: Berto Designs


Summary from Goodreads:
As the Governor’s daughter, Charlotte McClain is an expert in playing pretend. High society, the men her mother shoves in her direction and a Pre-Law major are all a part of her perfect pretense. But when she pretends to be a nobody during Spring Break, she meets someone who rocks her world.



Mason Rowell knows heartbreak and Spring Break don’t mesh well, so he allows the mysterious Charlotte to seduce him. What should have been a fling, results in something deeper. After Spring Break has long since passed, he moves to Washington to pursue his graduate degree, but what he never expected to find living among the rich and pompous, was the girl who gave him the strength to change and the desire to start anew.

When the guy Charlotte can’t forget goes from a sensual memory to temptation in the flesh, her facade is put to the test. If she surrenders to his charms, she risks ruining her mother’s perfect career and master plan. Playing pretend is what Charlotte does best, but how long can she pretend she doesn't love the man who made her proud of her true self?

NA Spotlight: J.C. Emery



Death comes in Armani. Salvation comes in leather.

Principessa to the Mancuso crime family, Alexandra knows a thing or two about living outside the bounds of the law. Suffocated by the future her father has laid out for her, she makes a choice she can't take back, changing the entire trajectory of her life.

Thrust into the dark and dangerous world of the Forsaken Motorcycle Club for her own protection, Alex finds herself faced with the last thing she needs right now: the man of her dreams. He’s sex in leather, the devil incarnate, and one hell of a kisser. But he’s also off-limits. Ryan Stone can be her friend, but he’s forbidden to be her lover.

Third-generation Forsaken, Ryan knows nothing other than life on two wheels, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He enjoys the many privileges that come with the patch, and the only laws he recognizes are the ones set-forth by his club. That is, until who he wants more than anything isn’t allowed on the back of his bike —or in his bed. Balancing his desire for her body, and need to keep her safe, Ryan tries to keep Alex at a distance. Finally having made a choice for herself, she’s done hearing the word “no” and will push boundaries even Ryan himself doesn’t dare cross.

Love is never more tempting than when it’s forbidden.

Thrash (Bayonet Scars, No. 2) comes out 1/9/14.
