By Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland


“Would you like something to drink, Hollis?”

“No, thank you.”

He looked completely uncomfortable standing in my kitchen, so of course,
I needed to make it worse. I tilted my head. “Did you touch any?”

“What?”

“My panties. Did you touch any while you were in the bathroom?”

He tugged at the collar of his polo and looked down the hall. “Where did
she go? We need to get back on the road.”

Oh my God!

I’d been kidding around. But…holy shit…he had! I covered my mouth and
cracked up. “You did, didn’t you! You perv!”

Hollis walked down the hall. “Hailey…let’s get going.”

I couldn’t get the smile off my face. Something about the thought of Hollis
touching my underwear amused the hell out of me. I wished Hailey wasn’t around
so I could ask him if he’d smelled them, too. That thought actually made me
snort.

Hollis came back to the kitchen. His face was stern. “We’ll see you on
Monday.”

I walked them to the door. Hailey surprised me with a hug. “Your art stuff
is awesome.”

“Thank you, sweetheart.”

I grinned at Hollis, who was impatiently holding the door open for his
niece. “Your uncle thinks my stuff is awesome, too.”

Jacob and Beth's complete series box set has been updated! Now includes SEVEN BOOKS! #contemporaryromance #rockstarromance

Jacob and Beth: The Complete Collection



Apple AmazonBarnes and Noble | Smashwords | Kobo | Google Play | $9.99.

An $18.99 value!

The My Once and Future Love Revisited series explores Beth and Jacob’s relationship with all its joys, flaws, and heartache.

This collection contains KISSED, BETRAYED, FORGIVEN, LOVED, and COMPLETED.

Includes the bonuses THE BASSIST and THE KEYBOARDIST!

Contemporary Rockstar Romance saga. This story is intended for readers 18 and over due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.


KISSED:

One kiss ignites chemistry and passion they can’t ignore, but is this only a summer fling?

Neighbors. Best friends. It was only a crush Beth harbored for Jacob until she was eighteen. Until London.

Neighbors. Best friends. That was all Jacob thought of her until London. Until she kissed him and stole his heart.

It's funny what Geometry class and a shared backyard wall can bring about. With a two-year age difference, Beth and Jacob were firmly in the Friend Zone during high school, but a pre-college trip to London will change their lives forever.

KISSED is the first of five books in the MY ONCE AND FUTURE LOVE REVISITED series exploring Beth and Jacob’s relationship with all its joys, flaws, and heartache. 

THE BASSIST:

Dylan is the bassist for Jake Lindsey's band, but not when he's in his hometown. It's Christmas Eve and a sudden, strong blizzard has left the mountain submerged in snow, wrecking his plan to drive back to Los Angeles in time to attend Jake and Beth's party Christmas Day.

Jennifer's family was coming to spend the holiday at her cabin, but the storm is keeping them off the mountain. Resigned to entertaining herself for the night, she's startled by someone pounding on her front door--a handsome man needing shelter from the storm. Dylan is sweet, funny, and so damn hot she can't resist learning what he has to offer.

Was this a single night of passion, or the beginning of lasting love?

THE KEYBOARDIST:

With most of the band coupled up now, Mike is the seventh wheel. Realizing he hasn't cultivated a life outside the band in years is a lonely epiphany. When a young woman mistakes him for someone else, the awkward encounter turns into a possibility for something real. Something lasting. Something like love.

Hannah, a recent arrival in L.A., is looking for a connection in her new life. Despite meeting Mike under less-than-ideal circumstances, she accepts his invitation to a Memorial Day BBQ with his friends, never expecting them to be famous rockstars with hearts of gold. Mike couldn't be nicer and sparks are flying, so when he insists on taking their time to get to know each other, part of her is flattered and the other side is frustrated he won't get naked. How far can she tease him before he gives in?

Settle in for a sweet and spicy romance in the My Once and Future Love Revisited universe where finding yourself means finding true love. 
Takes place after COMPLETED and THE BASSIST (Dylan and Jen).

Release Blitz! The Day He Came Back by Penelope Ward is live early! #contemporaryromance #bookrelease @penelopeauthor



THE DAY HE CAME BACK IS LIVE!

A Standalone Contemporary Romance
New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author 
Penelope Ward 

SYNOPSIS
It was the summer of my life.
I’d met the guy of my dreams.
Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer—and very much off-limits.
But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful.
He never treated me as his mother did—like hired help.
Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.

What a summer it was. 
Until it all ended—badly. 

I was never supposed to see Gavin again.
That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years.
I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.

When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again. 
But I wasn’t prepared.

What if he hated me?
What if he loved someone else now?
I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns.

And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.

Vi Keeland's ALL GROWN UP release day! #contemporaryromance

ALL GROWN UP



When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to.

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they say… curiosity kills the cat.
My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.
But…he looked so familiar.
As I got closer I realized why.
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home.
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man.
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.
Which I did. Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?

Vi Keeland Excerpt Reveal - All Grown Up releases July 8th!

All Grown Up by Vi Keeland



Excited about Vi Keeland’s upcoming release, All Grown Up? Check out this SNEAK PEEK

Eve’s face flashed on the screen, and I swiped to answer.

“Give me all the details.”

I shook my head repeatedly, even though she couldn’t see me. “It was horrible.”

“What happened? What did the bastard do to you? I’ll cut his balls off.”

Eve’s response made me smile for the first time since I’d laid eyes on my date. “No. It wasn’t that kind of horrible. He was a perfect gentleman.” 

“Okay...”

“Very sweet and funny, too.”

“Sounds awful,” she said sarcastically. 

“And gorgeous.”

“The balls on him.” 

“That’s not the worst part.”

“Let’s see...he’s young, gorgeous, sweet, and funny. What could be worse than that? He’s hung like a horse?”

“I wouldn’t know. And you know why I don’t know that?”

“Because you’re an uptight prude who hasn’t been laid in years?”

“That might be true. But the larger problem is that he is one of Ryan’s friends.”

Eve cackled. “That’s not a problem, that’s fantastic! Bang his brains out and send him to play golf with your ex. Let him eat his heart out when he realizes what he lost.”

“Ummm...Eve,I wasn’t talking about my ex,Ryan. I was talking about my son.”

"I'll be over in twenty minutes"

Remember what Memorial Day is about #memorialday #neverforget

Memorial Day

Did you know there's a WWI memorial in progress in DC?

They're still $13 million short of the $40 million needed and citizens can donate.

It'll be 8 ft tall and 50 ft wide, in a spot near the White House.

https://www.worldwar1centennial.org/honor/national-wwi-memorial.html

A soldier's journey is the story of the sculpture.

New Google Play Links

You might've noticed that my books disappeared from Google Play.

GP demanded new stuff from distributors, making them and authors jump through hoops. Though my paperwork was in April 7th, before the deadline, they pulled all books by April 15th.

Now they're back, but with brand new listings. All ratings and reviews were lost.

Shop for my books

It's inconvenient, but if you left a review on GP before, can you please do so again?

Believe me, my publisher is NOT happy. We've lost 6 weeks of income.

Authors - Your Narrator Needs to Know How to Act

Narrators Need to Know How to Act 
Not Just Read


A little tough love opinion in this post.

Authors need to get better at choosing narrators. Period. End.

Audiobook narrators need to be good actors!

I don't want to listen to a book read by Siri. Or Alexa. 

Have inflection. Personality. 

Attempt to sound like a NORMAL HUMAN BEING.

Go listen to a chapter of any of The Dresden Files Series narrated by James Marsters. THAT's how a narrator should sound from Chapter One. From Word One. You're immediately drawn in like you're sitting at a campfire hearing Harry Dresden tell his story.

If Robot Narrator is the only narrator you can afford, stop doing audio. Stop right now. Better to have no product than a substandard one. 

Make them do it better before you approve the final product. You're paying THOUSANDS of dollars for this! It should KICK ASS.

I've listened to samples from 2 authors recently that rave about the narrators they've chosen and they're so WOODEN. They're ROBOTS.

Like, how do you not HEAR that?

The writers write great characters, so the problem isn't on the page. It's certainly not how they sound in my head when I'm reading those books. But they keep picking these horribly robotic narrators that can't act their way out of a paper bag! PLEASE, go compare your narrator's delivered audio to any of the books James Marsters has narrated (more than Dresden Files btw) and LEARN. 

I cite JM just because I've actually heard those books, but pick any actor! Especially one experienced in theater as they'll know how to embody words without the help of film editing. I'm not saying you have to try to book TV or film actors - only 1% of authors could ever afford that. But every author doing audiobooks should be holding their narrator to that standard or what are we doing?

Really?

Hasn't the indie community gotten enough flack for putting out "substandard" and "unedited" ebooks? Now you're going to produce robotic audiobooks and perpetuate that narrative? Be better. 

DEMAND better.

Now I step off my soapbox.

Sam is waiting until after the reunion to announce his divorce publicly, but seeing Kate again rouses feelings long buried and he wants her no matter how much it complicates the weekend. She makes him feel alive for the first time in years, he’s missed their closeness from the past, and his mom loves her like a daughter.

Kate finds Sam even more gorgeous and sexy than twenty years ago, but he’s still technically married and she lives in Nashville. No matter how amazing their connection is, a relationship would never work. Why couldn’t he have shown up to that reunion fat and bald?

Synopsis:

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

What do you do when a sexy, older man moves into your family’s summer rental?

Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself—over and over. Things didn’t exactly get

off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say

the least.


But despite that, I found myself waking up every day with a newfound energy. Nothing

exciting ever happened on the lake—not until Noah moved into the small boathouse on

our property. He’d booked it for the entire summer…and I was still trying to figure out

why.


When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests

were well taken care of. I should have been finishing up college. Instead, I was living my

best life…as a maid.


Dark, handsome, and mysterious, everything about Noah screamed forbidden.

I knew he was just passing through town for the summer.

I knew he was probably a little old for me.

Yet, I was drawn to him.


Not to mention, he tried to save my life when he mistakenly thought I was drowning.

I wanted him and made no secret of it.


His own attempts to warn me away soon gave way to late-night moonlight chats by the

lake. We were slowly easing into a friendship that was gearing up to explode into

something I might not recover from.


Because he’s leaving at the end of the summer.

And I have no idea what I’ll do when August ends.
