[Book Blast] Good Together by CJ Carmichael #Giveaway

by CJ Carmichael



Mattie, the eldest of Marietta’s Carrigan girls, married rodeo cowboy, Wes Bishop, right out of high school and raised twin daughters. A happy life, she thought, but now that she’s in her late thirties and their daughters have left for college, her husband has become strangely distant.

Then one night Wes comes home late from a rodeo—with a stranger’s key in his pocket. He won’t talk, but she knows something is wrong.

When her worst fears are confirmed, the hits keep coming. It seems her husband is determined to destroy everything she loves in this world. Thankfully she still has her sisters, and her home on The Circle C Ranch. But more and more she thinks, not of her roots in Marietta, but of her kind, dependable neighbour, Nat Diamond. Over the years Nat has been a constant in her life, but only as a friend. Is it possible the two of them could become more? But if Nat really does have romantic feelings for her—as she suspects—why does he keep pulling away?

Is there something he needs to tell her?


She leaned her back against the counter, sipping the hot coffee and eyeing her husband. He was looking at the iPad again, as if her presence was nothing but an interruption. That was when she noticed the key was no longer on the counter.

“I found a key on the floor by your jacket this morning.”

Wes nodded, head still lowered. “Yeah. Thanks.”

“So... what’s it for?”

Wes hesitated a moment before answering. He seemed annoyed that she felt it necessary to ask the question and he answered with exaggerated patience. “I crashed with the Wilkinson’s this weekend. Peter gave me a key to their guest cabin and I forgot to return it. I’ll put it in the mail later today.”

A wild impulse rose in her—a desire to take his silly iPad and toss it into the garbage. What was he reading on there that was so damn fascinating? After four days apart, was it so unreasonable of her to expect to have a proper conversation with her husband?

What Readers are saying:

There's a great plot line, an interesting twist to the story, and I think although it's not a cliffhanger you'll be left wanting more…Kinky Book Klub

About the Author:

A city girl, born and bred, I place my stories in and around southeast Pennsylvania, or at least have a character or two from the area. Home is where the heart is and I make mine with my very own knight in slightly tarnished armor. When I’m not busy living my own happily ever after, I’m writing about someone else’s.

Contact Details:

Enjoy the following excerpt from Goddess of the Hunt:

“Is it done? Do you and the others in the house bring in sex partners from time to time?” She straightened and stared at him.
“Yes.” He hissed the answer.
“I’m travelling; you and I meet at a pub and go to your place to hook up. It’s simple and happens all the time. Believable, even.” She thought of Michel and her lips tilted at the corners. Then, casting her eyes over Eoin, she deliberately arched a brow and tucked her tongue in her cheek. “Well, for most people, anyway.”
His lips thinned and the muscles in his cheek ticked as he worked to control the flare of temper. It delighted her. “Fine, we’ll do it your way.” Eoin pushed himself from the chair he’d been perched on and nearly charged for the door. “I’ll be here at seven-thirty tomorrow morning, be ready.”
Paige grabbed his arm as he passed her. “What are you so worked up about? If it goes wrong, you can just leave me hanging and you know it. This costs you nothing, Paddy-boy; it’s my ass on the line.”
He grabbed her shirt and pushed her against the closet door. She didn’t fight it and he had his mouth on her in seconds. His tongue delved and demanded she respond; she arched up into the kiss. Delight, desire, and anger thrummed through her as she both succumbed and made demands of her own. His hands molded to her hips and pinned her between the hard planes of his body and the wall behind her. Then he abruptly pulled away. They stood inches apart; the air crackled around them. Their gazes locked. He opened his mouth, then shook his head and left without a word.
       Tie score.

It's my Birthday! #myyear

Well, it's that time of year where I don't know if I should cry or panic -- MY BIRTHDAY! Today I turn -- older. Yeah, just older, and I have to say that I'm actually happy about another blessed year. Ever since I hit my forties, life has been extra good to me. When I turned forty, my dreams came true -- in that first year alone, I signed my first, second and third book contracts. Now a few years later, I'm still working towards my goal of becoming a full-time writer, so I can do what I truly love.

So, what did this last year bring to me as an author? Here's a brief view:

I met Ry-Ry ... Okay, only in my dreams, but still, I wanted to start out with Mr. Cutie.

This past year ---->

Met the best writerly friends on the planet! Especially my "gals":  #GoldenGirls, #BrazenLadies, #WriterlySurvivors and #WeWriteRomance. You know who you are! LOVE YOU! 

I signed with an agent, Dawn Dowdle of the Blue Ridge Literary Agency
(Better things are coming, folks!)

Like how I added in a little John Krasinski? :)

Received my rights back from my debut novel. This may not seem like a "good" event, but I have learned so much since I first signed. I consider it a huge life lesson. Expect it to be released in the future! (crossing fingers)

Added a sweet Nemo one, so you don't think I sit around and stare at hot men all the time... mostly.

Signed on as Public Relations Manager with Anaiah Press, a new small Christian publisher. Check out for more news in the next week! :)

I published my first group anthology with the #Blazenladies, Ana Blaze, Aria Kane and Kara Leigh Miller and fell in love with the Winter Olympics.

Breaking the Rules was published with one of my favorite publishers, Crimson Romance. This book is near and dear to my heart! It just came out in paperback this week. :)

That's it in a nutshell. So much has happened and I have been truly blessed. Thank you all for being here and being a part of my dreams come true. I couldn't ask for a better start up that hill!

Love you all,

[Book Tour] Picture Me Naked by Lisa A. Olech

Z. Z. LAMBERT wasn't born uptight, but someone needed to be the adult. Zee's a "color-inside-the-lines" artist with a hippy mother, a mostly dead grandmother, and a cat named Isabella Rossellini. Add to her life's palette a stunning new life model, Jagger Jones. Is it just her, or does all the air leave the room when he shows up? Good thing he's just passing through. This is no time to fall in love, especially not with her model, no matter how perfectly knee-melty he may be.

Australian JAGGER JONES is a rolling stone. Living with nothing to tie you down takes talent. Posing without your britches is a piece of cake. He's three years into his walkabout with only his dead father's ashes for company.

But Z.Z. Lambert stops him faster than a croc in the mud. Her paintings of him are incredible. She sees past all of his posturing, past the flesh and bone and uncovers his heart. Zee understands the promise he made his father, and comes to love him enough to let him go. But does she love him enough to let him stay? His only other choice is a future without her. And he can't picture that at all.


Bio: Lisa is an artist/writer living in her dream house nestled among the lakes in New England. She loves getting lost in a steamy book, finding the perfect pair of sexy shoes, and hearing the laughter of her men. Being an estrogen island in a sea of testosterone makes her queen. She believes in ghosts, silver linings, the power of a man in a tuxedo, and happy endings.

Daphne loves her island and will not even think of leaving her family and friends, but as Remy falls for this island beauty he has other plans.
Can they both find more than they ever wanted or are they too stubborn to compromise?
