New Release! Tricked Truths by Beth Kery

December 31, 2007

Tricked Truths

by Beth Kery

Torrid Romance Contemporary

Rating: Erotic Romance – Explicit

Now available from Whiskey Creek Press Torrid

Grace Jamison had left the little town of Everly twelve years ago with her son and vowed never to return. But in order to move on with her future, she finds she has to return to her hometown and fix the wrongs of the past—starting with the only man who had ever had the power to hurt her.

The last person Trick Burnett wanted to see on West End property was his adulterous one time mother-in-law—the woman responsible for his father’s murder. Too bad his body seemed to have a mind of its own where Grace was concerned.

Trick hated secrets and Grace was a walking cache of them. He wasn’t above committing sexual blackmail in order to trick the truth from her time and again. Her sweet responsiveness always left him hungry for more until the mere revelation of her dark secrets was no longer enough. He couldn’t rest until he had everything from her—mind, body and soul.

Excerpt after the cut!



Let’s Get To The Contest…

December 16, 2007

Okay, I’m going to write a paragraph or two, and you tell me what you think Lisa and Erik are talking about, what you’d like to see happen, or anything else you wish to talk about. Then, I’ll come back and write the next bit. The person whose comments/suggestions I use will receive either a Harlequin Blaze/Temptation or Silhouette Desire/Special Edition book off of my shelf.

So, all you have to do is comment to win!

“You want to what?

“You don’t have to sound so surprised. Is the idea that off-the-wall?” God, she hoped Erik’s answer to that question was no, but the answer to her suggestion was yes. She crossed her fingers behind her back for luck.

He turned to look out the window. “Of course it’s not repulsive, Lisa, but it could change everything.”

“In some ways yes, but in other ways. Besides wasn’t it you that told me just last year when my life did a complete one-eighty not to fear change, but rather embrace it?”

He nodded.

“Sometimes a little change is exactly what a person needs, even they don’t realize it.”

“But this is a completely different situation.”

Lisa shrugged.

He turned and met her gaze.  “Okay, let’s say I agree to this. What’s your plan?”

God, Erik was her best friend, had been since childhood, so why was she so nervous? She sighed. Probably because what she’d just proposed had the potential to destroy that friendship and turn it into something it was never supposed to be, or make it the one thing they both’d been looking for.

So? What did Lisa propose to Erik? What should her plan be to accomplish this? You tell me and you’ll have a chance to win a book… or maybe two.

Let’s hear it… I’m waiting.

Help the animals!

December 5, 2007

Hi, all you animal lovers!

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough
people to click on it daily to meet their quota of getting
free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals.

It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on the
purple box “fund food for animals” for free. This doesn’t cost you a
thing. (And we don’t make a penny from this either.)

Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits
to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for

Here’s the website again! Pass it along to people you know.

Happy Clicking!

Days like these…

December 4, 2007

It’s days like these where I wondered why I ever started a blog, lol. Marissa has done FAR more posting than I have, which I generally take advantage of since I don’t have time.

What have I been up to? Some secret stuff, not a lot of writing, tons and tons of editing and newsletter stuff and whatnot, and more. I performed in my church’s annual Christmas concert on Sunday night, which was a blast, but BOY am I glad it’s over! It was a lot of rehearsals and time that I just didn’t have, but had to find. Dress rehearsal was about four hours Saturday morning, and the concerts were at 3pm and 7pm on Sunday.

Saturday late afternoon the Stud and I went to a new place to get a Christmas tree. Normally we go to a tree farm and get the tree cut down right in front of us, but their selection was small this year, and they also charge $10 a foot. Yes, that means for a 7-7.5-foot tree, we paid about $70-$75. This year we decided to go somewhere else, and ended up finding the perfect tree (already cut), and it only cost $32! Whoa! Now I see how the rest of the world has been living! LOL. Since Stud and I have been actively trying to cut down expenses, this helped immensely.

Now, I must venture back into the world of editing to get these edits to my very patient author. But what have you all been up to? What do your holiday preparations look like? Do you get a Christmas tree? Have a pre-lit fake one? Decorate in Hanukkah finery? Squeal like a little girl as I do when your favorite holiday song comes on the radio? 🙂

Hope everything’s going well for everyone, and I promise that come the New Year, I will be more active on this blog! Well, I will attempt to be! 😉

It is done…

December 2, 2007

Festive, no?  Took some time, but it turned out well.  We Scotts girls love the holidays and wanted to share our holiday spirit with you all!  Enjoy!

Happy Holidays, friends!!!
