Tangled Indulgence Release Day & Give-Away

Woohoo! Tangled Indulgence, book 3 in the Celestial Surrender series, comes out today.

tangledindulgence_msr

Reassigned to the nether-end of the galaxy and facing her last night on the planet, Adira has had better days. She shouldn’t have ruffled so many feathers with her investigation, but the trail of missing people was too important to ignore.

She knows exactly how to spend her evening. At an exclusive sex club, she’s determined to confront the Vampire who’s never far from her mind. She only has a few hours, but surely she can entice the sexy bartender to share them with her.

Malachy is more than he appears. Working undercover has him ready for anything… except Adira. The moment he laid eyes on the Sentinel he knew he’d found his lifemate. Unfortunately, the prickly mortal has a wall as hard as a spaceship’s hull around her heart.

Only hours remain to convince her she belongs in his arms, and his bed. As the heated night turns molten, duty and desire collide. Following their hearts will only complicate matters.

Inside Scoop: Our heroine gets the shock of her life when she discovers her voyeuristic nature, and the fact that it is the male-on-male action, as opposed to a ménage, that really gets her juices flowing.

In a moment where her emotions run high Adira had to do something completely out of character. She walks into a sex club and discovers more about her sexual fantasies than she had ever imagined.

I’ve been in that situation. No, not the one walking into a sex club;), but the one where I discovered something surprising about myself. I grew up close to the sea, but never felt very drawn to it. I hate swimming and deep water scares me. Walking along the beach was nice enough, but pretty much the same as walking in the woods or anywhere else. Then I spent two months in Alaska while working on my dissertation and I fell in love with running water. I kid you not, I must have dozens and dozens of pictures of springs, waterfalls, rivers and creeks. The colours, the beauty, the landscape around it. There is a serenity to it that makes me want to sit and daydream. And to this day I am drawn to any flowing water, no matter the location.

To celebrate the release of Tangled Indulgence I am giving away two prizes. Tell me what you discovered about yourself that surprised you in the comments. The first winner, chosen by numbers.org, can choose any of my four books in your preferred eformat, and the second winner receives a copy of Tangled Indulgence. Tell me about the moment you discovered you enjoy deep-fried brussel sprouts or the moment you discovered you like being tied up in bed. Your choice;)! The contest is open until Thursday 7th March.

Have a wonderful Friday!

A Year Ago Today Give-Away

A year ago today I became a published author:).

Tangled Shadows, book 1 in the Celestial Surrender series, released from Ellora’s Cave December 7th 2011. Wohoo!

It has been an exciting year with two more stories published and another with my editor. I am working on my second steampunk story as well as the outline for the final book in the Celestial Surrender series.

To celebrate the anniversary I am giving one lucky commenter the chance to choose a copy of Tangled Shadows, Tangled Hunger or Rescue by Ruin. Tell me what you are celebrating this month.

EDIT

Just realised I didn’t add an end date! The contest runs until Tuesday 11th December.

Rescue by Ruin – Snippet Four and Release Day Give-Away

Woohoo! My super-sexy steampunk novel Rescue by Ruin comes out today! It is hot-hot-hot and I am very excited. *does a quick dance around the office*

I love Beatrice and Vaughn’s story and I hope you will too. Here is the promised fourth snippet:

“His eyes, filled with flaming fury, held her captive. She finally managed to drop her gaze and pressed the napkin against his wound. Other than a hiss, he didn’t respond.

During the altercation everyone moved closer to the gramophone. Bea took shallow breaths. She had no idea how much time had passed and when they could expect the Yard.

And they still needed Waldon’s confession.”

Having lived in London for a long time I thoroughly enjoy mixing my experiences and knowledge with research and building a world where dirigibles, automatons and MENVs are part of daily lives. There are a great many definitions of what steampunk is, but for me is is the opportunity to mix the historical with the fantastical and even throw in a little Sci-Fi.

History has always been a subject close to my heart and at one time, when I was very, very young, I thought about becoming an archaeologist. Didn’t quite work out that way, but I wouldn’t mind meeting my own personal Doctor and travel through time and space in our very own TARDIS. I would love to see Ancient Egypt, watch Michelangelo sculpt David, meet Elizabeth I, hang out with Auguste Rodin or travel to Japan and meet Musashi Miyamoto.

What time would you like to visit and who would you like to hang out with? Leave a comment and you will be entered to win a copy of Rescue by Ruin. If you also Tweet a link to this post and include my Twitter handle @TinaChristopher I’ll enter your name for second time. The contest runs until Wednesday 7th November.

Happy Friday!
