She has the scoop of a lifetime, but only if she betrays his trust…

Ethan Kelly lost his best friend and bandmate to an overdose, but staying clean is proving harder than he thought it would be. His only safety net during his first weeks of sobriety is fellow recovering addict, Becca. As she guides him through the darkness, he begins to trust her not only with his secrets, but also his heart.

After years of trying to be the daughter her socialite parents wanted her to be (and failing miserably), Rebecca Shore finally has her life on track. Sure, she’s just an assistant at Moderne magazine when she’d rather be pursuing more serious journalism, but it’s a foot in the door. She’s just waiting for the scoop of a lifetime that will take her to the next level. But when she’s asked to help the reclusive and enigmatic rock star, her heart is torn between the career she’s always wanted and the man who bares his soul to her.





Ethan Kelly might be my Favorite Kelly Brother yet!

McHugh's Kelly Brothers Series is a Must Read for me, with emotion, humor and a sexy Kelly Brother...You can't go wrong!  

What I liked most about A SEDUCTIVE MELODY, aside from Ethan Kelly, the sexy Rock Star, was the content of the story.  McHugh gets a bit serious with this one, touching on addiction (which is HUGE in the industry and with young adults these days),  which was represented perfectly without being overwhelmed with information on recovery.

One of my favorite scenes is the Rosh Hashanah Celebration at Becca's apartment... I worked for years at a hair salon in a Jewish neighborhood of New York and I so enjoyed the fun reminder of all the people that I met throughout the years.

A great addition to the series, A SEDUCTIVE MELODY might just be my favorite so far....but we still have two brother's to go!

I met him for happy hour at the Yella Feather bar over on the south side about 5:30 on a hot August evening. He was dead by 6:15. Ours was a short relationship.

Lieutenant Deaver was one of the old guys with the San Antonio PD. He strolled in with the coroner, finding me where the first responder had put me. Over in a corner holding up a yellowed wall that reeked with years of stale nicotine.

“You okay?” Deaver asked.

“Yeah, think so.” I took a weak swallow of warm Coke.

“What happened?” He pulled out a rickety chair and sat down.

I slumped into a seat beside him. “I didn’t see the killer. My back was to the door when I heard the sound of a round chambered. Right in front me—Rodriguez was talking to me—a small, round hole drilled into his forehead. I heard the door bang shut and a car squeal off, but by the time I made it outside there was nothing to see and only cordite to smell.”

I looked around the bar, broken-down scarred tabletops, wobbly chairs, flaking vinyl floors with duct tape covering the cracks. The stink of disinfectant and stale grease mingled with gun smoke. Helluva place for a kid to die.

“How long you known him, Cahill?” Deaver asked softly.

“I’d say about forty-five minutes, give or take.”

He scratched his left armpit, his face screwed into thought. “What were you doing with Rodriguez? Source of yours?”



Teaching and shooting news and documentaries took me to work on the East and West coasts, the Midwest and an island in the Gulf of Mexico. Born a fourth generation Texan, I live in Austin with an energetic mutt that waits patiently every day for me to come home and write.

TVBT: The Governess Club: SARA by Ellie MacDonald (Book Three) #HeroProfile #Giveaway @Tastybooktours @elliemacdauthor


Enter to Win
Digital Set of CLAIRE & BONNIE
The Governess Club Books One & Two



Sweet Sara Collins is one of the founding members of the governess club. But she has a secret… She doesn’t love teaching. She’d much prefer to be a vicar’s wife and help the local community. But this quiet mouse doesn’t want to upset her friends, and she resolves to help in whatever ways she can.

Nathan Grant is the embodiment of everything that frightens Sara. Which is why she can’t understand why the handsome but reclusive and gruff man is so fascinating to her. When Sara decides it’s time to take a chance and experience all that life has to offer, Nathan is the first person she thinks of.

Will Sara’s walk on the wild side ruin her chances at a simple, happy life? Or has she just opened the door to a once-in-a-lifetime chance of passion?







Name: 
Nathan Grant
Age: 
Seven and twenty years
Rank/Peerage or Occupation: 
I have a seat in the House of Commons. Had a seat. I resigned it before moving to Windent Hall. I don’t want to get into details about that.
Physical Description: 
I am tall with shaggy blond hair. My eyes have been called ice blue because of how cold they can be. I have a limp on my left leg and I use a black cane with a gold wolf’s head.
Likes: 
Sex. Whisky. Sara. Not necessarily in that order.
Dislikes: 
Hypocrisy, especially now that I have seen it in myself. Dishonesty. Being away from Sara. Anything that hurts Sara.
Relationship Status: 
Betrothed to Sara.
Typical Evening Out: 
I usually don’t go out. People have a hard time getting to know me, so it’s easier to stay home. With Sara. And that’s just fine with me. Her friends have accepted me, so I usually spend time with them at Ridgestone, if I have to leave Windent Hall at all. If I do go to public events, I prowl along the outskirts,, watching for Sara and keeping everyone else at a distance.
Drink of Choice: 
Whisky. Or brandy.
Favorite Food: 
Cornish pasties, ever since Sara ate one from my fingers at the Spring Fair.
Favorite Book: 
I don’t read much, but I have to brush up on my agriculture knowledge. I am going to give being a gentleman farmer a go.
Favorite Dance: 
I don’t dance. My leg doesn’t fully function, remember?
Best Memory to Date: 
Teaching Sara how to swim. Or the first time she laughed in our bed. Both are good.
Words to live by: 
Carpe diem.

Release Blitz: HEMY by Victoria Ashley (Walk of Shame #2) #Erotic #Giveaway #NewRelease

My name is Hemy Knox and I’m a fucking heartbreaker . . .

I’ve hurt the one person that means the most to me in life; the only woman I have ever fucking loved. I let the drugs, alcohol and wild life take over; consume me. I got her where I wanted her and ripped her fucking heart out. Since then, I’ve spent countless nights having dirty, meaningless sex with a multitude of people; only leaving them wanting and begging for more with no regrets. Some may even call me the devil; soulless. They look and judge, but there is one thing they don’t know; no one does. I want more than this life of stripping and sleeping around; the never ending party. I want love and everything that comes with it; that high that never ends. 


The problem is . . . I only want it with her. Onyx. She refuses to be mine . . . again. She’s smart and it’s a mother fucking pain in my ass; guarding her heart while ripping mine right out of my chiseled chest. I can’t say that I blame her. I always was a dumb ass when it came to the emotions of a woman, especially her. She wants to see me suffer as much as I made her; watch me wither and fucking die at her feet. She wants to crush me until I’m no longer breathing and I will let her, because it hurts far less than not having her as mine. I will stop at nothing to make her mine again. The pain only drives me harder; feeding my fury and giving me a reason to live . . . her. 

***Author's note*** 

Due to strong language and a very high amount of sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. This is #2 in the Walk Of Shame series of novellas that will all be STANDALONE reads. This includes F/M and F/M/M so if you’re not into dirty sex scenes with filthy language, then this book is not for you. If you are . . . then, come meet the dirty boys of Walk Of Shame.
