#NewRelease Twisted Luck: Ready to Take You To Hell And Back #paranormalromance #kindle





So excited! Today is release day for Twisted Luck!



This is my first full release in a long time, and I'm really proud of this book. They say it takes a village for a lot of things, and a village definitely helped me get this project off the ground. You see, I had given up writing. In my mind, I was done. But a friend asked me not to stop, and at the same time, the muse kicked in with a story idea. I always come up with a song, and Elle King's Ex's &Oh's became the track that made the images form in my mind and beg to be written. I said I'd try once more, but I'd write for me and my village.

So here we are, a year later. I hope you like Olivia and Leo's story as much as I enjoyed writing it. The trailer below was designed by TBC Trailers and is gorgeous. Enjoy!~Mia

Blurb For Twisted Luck


video
All I wanted was luck—the good kind. I’d lost my job, a jerk hacked my bank account, and I caught my best friend screwing my fiancĂ©. When stood up by my Internet date in a bar, I met the perfect man—tall, dark, and handsome in the most expensive suit. He was out of my league, but I didn’t want forever.

I barely remember the words he whispered under the veil of sin and seduction. I didn’t believe in Satan, God, Heaven or Hell. I thought he was kidding. A figment. A dream.

I was wrong. With one, breathless yes, my fate was sealed.

Businessman by day, demon by night, Leo Weston now owns my soul in exchange for good luck. Time is ticking as he works to secure my mother’s soul, too. Somehow, I have to take him down despite him being so damned gorgeous, glib, and devious. Will my gift of twisted luck be enough to save her and protect my heart?

Excerpt from Twisted Luck

Someone slid onto the stool next to me. I glanced over at the attractive guy in a suit, my heart pounding fast for a beat. Maybe my date had shown after all.
Cover by Designed by D

I turned just enough to check him out from the corner of my eye. Nope. The tailored, expensive suit and sparkling cufflinks screamed class and money. Definitely not my internet date.

I sipped the frozen margarita I’d nursed between shots and peeked again, trying to not be obvious in my perusal. Hot, broody, and dangerous, he wore a dark gray suit that fit him to a tee. Short-cropped, dark hair, high cheek bones, firm lips, and a hint of dark stubble shading his strong jaw—all definitely my type. Probably mid-thirties. I liked older. With my luck, the guy had a wife and two mistresses waiting somewhere.

Yet here he sat on a barstool next to me, making my palms wet and my heart race. Disheartened, I sipped my drink and did my best to ignore the eye candy at my elbow.

I was definitely doomed.

“Can I buy you another drink?” the hot guy asked.

“That’s probably not a good idea.” I toyed with the stirrer in my drink. Wife and mistresses. I had to keep that in mind.

He chuckled, his deep voice stirring something carnal deep inside me. “I assure you, I’m not married. Nor do I have mistresses.”

Had I said that aloud? I shrugged, not wanting to be sucked in to the charm and whatever else he was selling in that expensive suit. “Sure. It’s your dime.”

He ordered and casually leaned an elbow on the bar, the weight of his stare sliding along my skin, heating it. I’d worn a simple black dress that showed just enough thigh and cleavage for a first date. My exposed flesh warmed as shocks of pleasure and lust danced along my nerves.

Maybe the alcohol was finally kicking in. I focused on the television, hoping the hot guy would take his drink and sit somewhere else.

“You look like you’ve lost your best friend,” he observed.

“Nosy.” But yeah, I had when she’d screwed my boyfriend in my bed. I took one of the shots the bartender slid in front of me and downed it without clinking glasses or thanking the guy.

“You want to talk about it?”

“Nope.” I set the glass in front of him and met his chocolaty gaze for the first time. “Look, buddy—”

Gah.

I froze, mesmerized as I stared at perfection. His eyes…deep, dark brown pools I’d drown in if I weren’t careful, framed by the thickest, darkest lashes. My heart did weird things as I fought for the breath lodged in my tight chest.


Mr. Perfect stared at me as if he knew me, had lost me, and had finally found me. And for some reason, I thought I knew him, too.

Sneak Peek At Twisted Luck Book Trailer by @thebookchick #.99 #preorder #paranormal

I am SO EXCITED!!!! 

So this is probably the best thing that happened to me outside of  not being late for my wedding, birthing 2 healthy kids, and finding clean underwear this morning (I'm not an exciting person and I'm very easy to please). This trailer was created by The Book Chick, Nita Banks, and it is AMAZING. It's everything Twisted Luck is about. There's action, danger, and the possibility of romance. Nita did an amazing job, and I'm so grateful she was able to do this. She is beyond amazing. 

So without further ado, here's the trailer for Twisted Luck. It's available on pre-order for .99 for a limited time at all retailers.

Today is the release day for Deliciously Smooth by KB Jacobs! 



List Price: $.99 for pre-order and first week of release. Increases to $2.99 after that, so get it while you can!

Summary
My parents were conmen and I was their tool. I learned how to cheat, connive, and charm my way out of any circumstance. But now I’m respectable...kind of. Yeah, my life is still a lie, but that’s because I have no choice. My best friend, who’s also my boss, needs me to lie to keep our billion-dollar charity going. It’s complicated.

But all the lies are about to end. I just have to finish one final task...taking over a brewery. Easy, right?

Not so much. Because that brewery is part of a custody battle between mother and daughter. The mother owns it. The daughter thinks it should be hers. I’m caught in the middle. Not normally a bad place to be when it comes to two feisty women.

But I’m falling for the daughter and when my lies come to light, everything is going to unravel. And then my future with the brewery and the girl will be shot to hell.

My boss probably won’t be too happy with me either...

Hot Diggity! Drool Worthy Cover For Twisted Luck #paranormal #romance #newrelease




HOWDY FOLKS!

It's been FOREVER since I've blogged, and even longer since I've put out a book. For good reason. You see, I had decided I was giving up writing. A funny thing happened...the minute I said I was done, my muse returned and POOF! I have a juicy, full-length book to share with you. For a limited time, the book is on sale for .99 during pre-order. Links to follow. And be sure to stay to the end. Leave a comment and your email and I'll put you in the running for a surprise!



Cover designer Diana Carlile has outdone herself this time! Everything about this cover is perfect. It's sexy, the hero looks like bad boy demon Leo, jingling his change as he verbally spars with our heroine, Olivia. Just try not to get drool on your phone or keyboard. 

My gorgeous teasers and the cover reveal artwork were created by Sunshine Reads. You'll see more of them in the future! 

Now let's have a peek at this cover! 



Twisted Luck  by Mia Downing

"When I told him to go to hell, I didn't realize it would be a trip for two."

All I wanted was luck—the good kind. I’d lost my job, a jerk hacked my bank account, and I caught my best friend screwing my fiancĂ©. When stood up by my Internet date in a bar, I met the perfect man—tall, dark, and handsome in the most expensive suit. He was out of my league, but I didn’t want forever.

PG-13 Excerpt of Twisted Luck (more racier excerpts to come in later posts!)

“What would you give, Olivia, to have your revenge?” he asked.
“I don’t want revenge.” But honestly…I’d sell my soul for some good luck.
“What did you say?”
I frowned. “I don’t want revenge?”
“No, the other.”
“I don’t recall saying that out loud.”
He leaned closer and practically whispered, “Say it anyway.”
I licked my lips, unable to tear my gaze from his chocolaty one. “I—” I licked my lips again. “I’d sell my soul for good luck.”
“Would you?” He leaned forward on his elbows, interested and eager for my answer.
“Would you?” I countered, shocked by his words and that I’d even contemplate this to begin with. People didn’t sell their souls. I didn’t believe in God, Satan, Hell, or Heaven. When I was little, God hadn’t helped my mother or me when we’d needed him most. I sure as hell didn’t see any help on this horizon.
“I already have. Paid the piper, too.” Blatant honesty and sadness quirked in his slight smile.
Now I sat a little taller. Had this guy been through hell and back? No way could someone fake that look, the one of cold despair. I knew it too well. I had seen it on my mother’s eyes, viewed it in the mirror when I gazed at myself. I had thought Mr. Perfect hot and out of my league, but this…maybe this soft admission put him square in my playing field.

I'm so happy you stopped by! Leave a comment and your email and I'll do a drawing for a $10 Amazon gift card and a backlist e-book.

#twrp Spicy Summer Treats With Pineapple And More! #eroticromance


Welcome to the Summer Treats and Read Blog hop 
presented by The Wild Rose Press. 

Grand prize: A Kindle Fire via Rafflecopter below
My Prize: Leave a comment to win a $5 Gift card and choice of e-book. 

One of my favorite summer treats is pineapple. It's cool, sweet and tangy all at the same time! I visited an organic pineapple farm in Costa Rica a little over a year ago, and it was amazing to see how they grow. I'm pretty smart on how things grow, but I wasn't sure what to expect. I was quite surprised!



Here's a field to get an idea of how big the plants are. Each plant grows one pineapple. It takes two years for the plant to mature and grow a fruit.




Here are some neat rows of pineapples. All of the things you do to "test" if a pineapple is ripe is false. They should be picked ripe and do not ripen after picking. 



 And a little baby one! Pineapple is a Hawaiian fruit but Costa Rica has the perfect weather to grow them. I saw a site that said they grow 60% of the world's pineapple supply. I'm not sure if that's true, but we had fresh ripe pineapple right out of the field and it was the best I've ever had. 


Tasty Summer Treat: Pineapple Upside Down Cake
My favorite pineapple recipe is Pineapple Upside Down cake, and this one actually comes from the side of the Duncan Hines box. You make it in a skillet and I actually substitute a cup of pineapple juice from the can instead of using water. I've never made it with fresh pineapple. I'm inserting the link to the recipe here: Duncan Hines Double Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Tasty reads: 
This is an excerpt from Exceeding Boundaries, my first book! Adam is trying to bring Megan out of her sexual shell and decides to use pineapple for his lesson in seduction. Warning: This is SPICY, so if you're not into that, just scroll on down and do the prizes. 

An Excerpt From Exceeding Boundaries by Mia Downing
Adam nuzzled under her shirt—his shirt—and let his tongue warm a path across her stomach, ignoring the patch of curls he wanted so much to dive into. “A woman can’t talk about anal sex like that at dinner and not offer a man dessert. Do you have any suggestions?”
“There’s fresh fruit in the fridge.”
“That could be refreshing.” He nipped her belly and rose to investigate. Sure enough, there was a plastic container with watermelon and pineapple spears. He grinned, anticipating the fun he could have.
“Do you want a plate?” she offered, sliding forward to get one.
His grin widened as he realized she had no clue what he was going to do to her. “Nope.” He took out a piece of pineapple and took a bite. Sweet, succulent juices trickled down his throat, though they weren’t anywhere as sweet as the juices he wanted to taste. “You want some?”
She grabbed a napkin and wiped the juice his chin and jaw. “Not now.”
“You sure?” He pulled her closer and dabbed the spear to her lips and then kissed the juice away, his tongue lapping a path down her chin, along her jaw. His teeth nipped at her lower lip. Satisfied, he pulled back to watch her reaction.
He loved the way innocence tore away as she realized his full intent. Her eyes widened and her mouth opened slightly. She bit her lip, and the hand on his chest trembled. He took another bite of the fruit and this time she leaned in, tentatively, and licked his mouth, his chin. Her gaze returned to his, as if seeking approval.
“Not bad?” he whispered.
“Better than I expected.”
He chuckled. “Always hard to please, you are.” He unbuttoned her shirt and smoothed the cloth away from her perfect breasts—not too small or large. “Maybe this will meet your approval.” He dabbed the spear on her rosy tipped nipple and then devoured the juices eagerly, his tongue lapping the hard peak. Then he sucked, enjoying her soft moan, his other hand sliding to her other breast to flick that nipple with his thumb. He broke the suction and reached for another slice of pineapple. “Lean back.”
She didn’t look too sure as she did as he asked, bracing her palms behind her. He vowed to make her very sure as he nudged her thighs wider and drew a line of juice from her navel to top of the curls between her legs. His tongue then followed the path in a quick swoop, enjoying the salty tang of her skin mixed with the sweetness.
He sat in the chair and drew another path from her knee along her inner thigh, following right behind with his tongue, ending at the juncture. She jumped a bit, and he blew a breath across her clit. He glanced up and met her gaze as he slid the spear to her clit, then downward, pushing just the tip into her pussy.

She gasped, and he chuckled. “See, getting your two servings of fruit a day doesn’t need to be torturous.”
