Seth noticed Krista's shoulders were extremely pink from the full day’s worth of sun exposure.
“Dang, Kris, your shoulders got burnt today. You’re going to be sore tonight,” he commented.
He had dark, olive-toned skin which tanned nicely, but Krista burned if she wasn’t careful. He had
reminded her to lather on the sun block that morning, but it was only SPF 5. He had bitten his tongue to
keep from chastising her.

Now he saw her skin looking angrier by the minute and grimaced, knowing she was going to be
miserable by nighttime.
Krista looked down her nose at her left shoulder and gave a shrug, “Oh, well. I have some aloe
stuff my mom bought me. I think I might have it here in my bag.” She reached into the bag she had
plopped down next to her, and eventually pulled out a small bottle of aloe.
“Can you rub this onto my shoulders for me?” Without waiting for an answer, Krista swung her
right leg over the side of the tree so she straddled it with her back to Seth, giving him access to both
Seth, used to her bossiness, squirted some of the gel into his palm and began to delicately rub it
into her skin.
“Oooh, ouch. You’re right. It’s already starting to hurt.” Krista winced.
Seth felt the cool gel warm up under his fingers against on her hot skin. Krista glanced back over
her shoulder and for a quick second, locked with Seth’s intense gray gaze.
Seth stopped rubbing the aloe into her skin as something between them vibrated, humming so
loud it seemed to fill the silence of the woods surrounding them. Krista leaned back into Seth’s chest,
reached her left arm behind his head and pulled him to her, operating on instinct rather than organized

Within seconds, Seth had his arms filled with beautiful, soft, Krista. Her fingers tangled in his hair
at the nape of his neck and their lips met in a long awaited union. He was no longer capable of calling to
memory why he believed he should be avoiding such an encounter with her. All he could do was feel.
It felt natural, when she leaned back against him, to wrap his arms around her and pull her
closer. When she pulled his face toward his, it seemed as if he had made the journey a thousand times.
There was nothing awkward or out of place, as he had wondered about. The moment his mouth met
hers, she invited him in with a gentle parting of her lips, flicking her tongue over his. A hunger within
him was unleashed and he ran his own fingers up into her hair at the base of her skull, cupping her head,
tipping it back gently to take the kiss further, deeper.
The world stopped, tilted, and reversed rotation. There would be no going back. This was an
irreversible revelation.

A Light in the Wound Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway by Christine Brae

Book Title: The Light in the Wound
Author: Christine Brae
Genre: Contemporary Romance Fiction
Release date: July 23, 2013

Affected by her parents’ highly publicized divorce, Isabel grows up isolated and alone, with a resolve to
never fall in love and repeat their mistakes.
When Jesse Cain enters her life, she falls hopelessly in love with him, and every sadness she’s ever felt is
washed away by his intensity and passion. But people change as they grow up. Things can never stay the
same forever.
Jesse and Isabel fight to stay together, determined to hold on to what they once had. Isabel wonders if a
second love can ever be enough to make her forget her first.

About Christine:
I love to read, write about reading, shop, write about shopping, three day weekends, high heels
and purses. I’m a wife, a mother, a corporate executive, a loyal friend and a passionate believer
in true love. This is all you need to know about me. If you get my stories, you get my heart.

“Thank you, baby,” he whispered, as he reached across the table to take my hand. We
were dining at our favorite restaurant one night after a late meeting.
“For what?” I lovingly rubbed my thumb on his wrist.
“For being here with me.”

I was so engrossed in the conversation going on behind me that I didn’t respond.
“What?” He chuckled as he caught me smiling at him from across the booth.
“Nothing. These women right behind me are talking about you. The one facing you is
gushing,” I whispered, amused.

This had become an acceptable fact of dating Alex. Even before you saw his face, there
was no use hiding his body under anything he wore. His clothes just hung on him so
perfectly, like a runway model. That night, he wore a white casual button down shirt
over low-slung distressed jeans that had the perfect flair to match his canvas designer
sneakers. His short hair showcased his perfect jaw, his full lips, his round blue eyes. His
clean cut look was tempered by the stubble that lined his jaw and his chin.

“Come sit by me, please. You feel so far away.” His eyes were dancing like little blue
lights on a Christmas tree. I stood up, walked around and slid into the booth with him. It
was like he gave me his consent to claim my territory. He leaned against me, closing the
gap between us as his mouth skimmed my earlobe.
“Much better,” he  murmured. “You know, I don’t care about anyone else but you.”
This story was and emotional roller coaster from the start.  We meet Isabelle who comes from a crazy home and life. Her whole life she has been living in the shadow of someones life if not her mothers crazy sorted life or her fathers then it was in the shadow of her first love. At first I loved Jesse he seemed to love her so much but as time went on it seemed the only way he grew was sucking the life out of Isabelle in order for him to make it he needed her to give up her life for him. they started with a sweet loving relationship and as it grew and they grew it seemed more and more  controlling Jesse became soon he was controlling where she went who she saw what she wore she lost her self .  I was so happy when Alex came along and helped her see the light and help her free her self of the crazy and show her how to live for her self again he was so patient picking up the pieces when she fell apart he was so loving and forgiving.  It truly showed how much he loved her when they moved away for many yrs he gave up his family to make her happy so they could build a relationship with no interference from her family or her past .  First loves aren't always forever sometimes they are meant to teach you so that you can find a love that lasts.

What happens when you create rules to keep others out?

One thing Emerson Moore has come to terms with is that she is the school slut. She knows her way
around a frat house and how to get what she wants. She doesn’t make any excuses for her actions and she
doesn’t pretend to be anything different. She is who she is and with that she knows how to have a good time.

She’s made rules to keep relationships at bay and avoid the demons of her past.
When her best friend, Cole has his two friends from back home move in with him she begins to think
she has met her match with Jaxon Riley. Jax is the perfect mixture of tattooed muscle and a sweet-talking
mouth. With “hand” written notes, a voice that exudes sex and knowing just how to get under her skin, Jaxon learns how to break all the rules. But will he just end up breaking her heart anyway?

I'm a wanderer, an adventurer, a traveler.
I want to see it all. I haven't been everywhere but it's on my list.
"She travels the world & home is always in her heart."
Lately if I'm not traveling or chasing a toddler, I'm writing. Which is weird because I hated writing in
college. Oh wait, that's because that was boring. Who really wants to sit there and cite all your sources into
APA format? Not this girl. Writing for yourself is enjoyable and cathartic. Please try it. Then tell me about
because I love indie authors.
When I was 19, I packed up and followed my high school sweetheart from Texas to California. We had
a blast living it up in San Diego. Four years later we made a crazy decision and packed up again and moved
to Germany. What? Yep, you read that right. Guess what? Best decision ever! We OWNED Europe. For three years we saw as much as we possibly could. We lived an hour outside of France, a couple from Switzerland and Italy. Most amazing time of my life. Please go out there and see the world, you won't regret it. After Europe we moved back to California, and for now we're just debating our next adventure.
I earned a degree in Child Development. And now I write novels. Makes perfect sense! I write because
I walk around all day with these stories in my head. It's nice to be able to get them out of my head in an
organized fashion. I hope that someone out there enjoys them, because I have enjoyed so many others'.

What a great read! This book had all the emotions that one comes to love with a New Adult/Contemporary Romance.
Emerson Moore is so scared of getting attached to anyone for fear that they're going to leave her one day, because she's already lost so much.
She's created three rules that she follows that allows her to have a fun, care-free college experience. In her mind it's not ending with college, it's for life.
1. Never sleep with any guy your friend has feeling for.
2. Never sleep with anyone in a known relationship.
3. Never sleep with the same person more than three times.
This beautiful, broken girl does NOT want to get attached to anyone and she doesn't want anyone attached to her. With these rules, she'll still have fun and no one gets hurt... Until she meets Jaxson Riley.
Jaxson is the 'Texas, football playing, bad-ass'. How do you not love Jax with his melodic southern voice and impossibly good looks. Lets not fail to mention that he only has eyes for Emerson.
How is she supposed to follow her rules with a guy as hot as him hanging around. He's the high school best friend of her and her sister/roommates best friend and is now living right next door. Oh yeah and there's also Jace... his brother. He's 'equally' as hot and a super nice guy.
The chemistry that Emerson and Jaxson have from first sight is intense. He is swoonworthy and she determined not get wrapped up in all thing 'Jax'.
Jax is persistent, and gets behind her walls, despite all her warnings that she doesn't want to hurt him.
Like any good love story, they totally hurt each other.
Kimberly Lauren kept you reading with words of love, anger, sadness, and drama. (I hate Audrey and Rachel) But at the same time that your heart won't settle down and you NEED to know what happens next, I was glad that I didn't have to dig out the box of tissues because something devastating blindsides you out of nowhere.
Read this story to find out of Emerson overcomes her fear of being left behind again or if Jaxson breaks her heart beyond repair.

HEAT WAVE BLOG TOUR STOP AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT ON: Peeking Through Wooden Blinds by Jane Reinhart

Paige Henderson and Joey Novak are planning their wedding. But a devastating and
mysterious phone call leads Paige onto a path of self-destruction and into the arms of
the wrong man. Her ensuing marriage to Nick Bruska becomes a nightmare and she
struggles to regain self-worth. Joey has never forgotten Paige. Will he ever see her
again? Only then could they discover the terrible mistake that changed the course of
their lives.

The invitation list included Bob and Maura, a couple who also grew up with Nick.
While Paige was mingling with guests in the living room, Nick and Maura were in the
basement playroom watching television. Bob walked downstairs to inform his wife it was
time to go. All of a sudden, the irate husband came storming upstairs to confront Paige.
 "Do you know what your husband is doing?" Bob screamed.
 Paige was dazed and uncertain.
 "He is lying on the couch with my wife, and he has his arms wrapped around her!"
 While Paige was trying to create a suitable excuse for Nick's behavior, Maura ran
upstairs to explain her innocence. After a brief scolding from her husband, she directed
her comments to Paige.
 "Don't listen to Bob," Maura said. "He has a bad temper. You know Nick and I have
been close for a long time, and he wasn't doing anything wrong."
 Bob and Maura left while the other guests were still trying to close their mouths.
 Paige knew Maura spoke the truth. Nick took all aspects of his personality to the
limit, especially his affectionate nature, but she gave him an impending warning.
 "NIck," she started, "one day your over-friendless is going to get you into a lot of
 Nick agreed, but didn't absorb her warning.
 Insisting that it was "nice to be nice," the sociable husband assured his wife that
he knew where to draw the line. For instance, Nick confessed that, once, when a young
woman offered him her phone number after an evening of pinball challenge, he declined
and told the girl he was married. With a gallant air, he shared the story now to prove his
fidelity. Paige reminded him that if he spent hours cavorting with female competitors,
he was already straddling the fence. Furthermore, she argued that women on the
prowl always checked a man's hand to see if he was sporting a wedding ring. That was
something Nick refused to do; explaining that, since he was a tradesman, wearing one
presented the dangerous risk of getting the ring caught in machinery. He added that
when he retired, he would wear the band of gold with pride.
Trust regained its stronghold, and another obvious wave of the red flag was
