She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James.

Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met.

I write romances with flawed characters, characters with artistic hearts: builders, poets, and writers of various makes and models. I love to write book lovers; those who have found refuge, companionship, and escape in books, much as we do in real life. I like realism, honesty, authenticity in storytelling. I love to write about enduring love, soul-deep love, in as real a setting as I can make, but with big smooshy HEAs. I believe in diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion. I like sweetness mixed with steam, love conquering all, and above all, hope. Love always wins.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Chaos and Control by Season Vining

BLOG TOUR BANNER.jpg

Chaos and Control, an all-new standalone from Season Vining is available NOW!

ChaosAndControl-1600

Title: Chaos and Control

Author: Season Vining

Release Date: December 11th

When Wren Hart returns to her sleepy little Midwest town after years on the road, she finds the last thing she’d ever expect—a reason to stay. And that reason has a hard body, a knowledge of vinyl, and a crooked smile that sends her reeling.
Preston is a gorgeous, mysterious man, whose life is ruled by routine and order. Yet somehow, he finds Wren and her wild ways captivating. While their relationship grows in a delicate dance of chaos and control, the danger Wren thought she'd left behind during her travels is inching ever closer…and just may destroy them both.

Excerpt:

“Want to tell me what you’re thinking about?” Preston’s gaze flicks to my mouth and up to my eyes. “Kissing.” Hope ignites a fire inside me. “And how do you feel about kissing?” I see his Adam’s apple bob, and he taps the side of his glass with his index finger. “It’s easier when I’m drunk. The alcohol seems to take the edge off.” I frown at the thought of this. Needing alcohol to dull your senses seems like such a waste. I try not to give him a sympathetic look. I know he doesn’t want my pity . “That’s too bad,” I say, letting my palm rest on his knee. The song changes, and I grin at the familiar beat. “Kissing is one of my favorite things. I mean, sex is good, but kissing is much more intimate. Don’t you think?” Preston shrugs at me, but I see that I have his undivided attention. “First there’s the build up. Innocent touches,” I say, dragging my nails up his thigh, “and mutual flirting just to let the other party know you’re open to the idea. There’s that slow burn in your body. It builds every time you catch the other person staring.” Preston listens intently, finishing his whiskey. He licks those perfect lips, and my fingers tighten around my glass, holding on to the last of my control. “Every time you drink or take a bite of something, your full attention is brought to the mouth. You imagine what those lips will feel like. Will they be soft and submissive? Or hard and possessive?” I sip my drink while he pours himself another. “And which do you prefer?” he asks. His normally deep voice is even lower and gritty. It reminds me of the static scratching noise when an album finishes playing. “I like both—individually and at the same time. I like to be owned by a kiss.” Preston leans back on the couch and sips his drink again. He stares out at the store. “Seems like a lot of pressure for a kiss.” SBPRBanner-ALTL-CR2-5

About Season:

Hi. My name is Season Vining. I have written poetry as long as I can remember. There are hand-written odes to flowers, mermaids and New Kids on the Block tucked away somewhere in my mother’s house. Later, things grew darker. Lines of teenage angst, the cruelties of high school and woes of unrequited love fill random pages of school notebooks. With maturity came a longer attention span and a desire to pen short stories. Eventually, I was inspired to write my first manuscript by reading other stories. I found myself wishing for this storyline or that character and one day asked myself, “Why don’t you write it?” I love a bit of adventure and danger mixed in with my romance and you’ll find that in each story I tell. I love to hear from fans, so feel free to reach out to me on social media or through my website. Thanks for being awesome! In the simplest terms, I am a designer, an author, a philanthropist, a bookworm, a cook, inked, a night owl, and always a student. seas1

Author Bio - Heather Guimond

I am a native Angeleno, specifically an original valley girl. (Cue Frank Zappa music). I am a self-professed bibliophile, with a Kindle library larger than Imelda Marcos' closet. I have also been writing since I was old enough to form letters when someone shoved a crayon into my tiny little fist as a toddler. Those letters eventually became sentences, and those sentences eventually turned into stories. It took a long time before I was able to turn those stories into something I felt was worthy of sharing with the world, but finally here we are. I hope that you agree.
As for the rest of me, I'm a 40-something (no, I'm not going to tell you how many somethings follow the 40) mother of three who has been married to my husband for 14 years. We live in a small enclave just north of Los Angeles with my aunt, who is also an author. Shattered Perfection is my debut novel. The original draft was written over a three week period in October/November 2014. It "marinated" on my hard drive until February 2015, when a good friend and fellow author begged to read it. I was completely against the idea, but being the persuasive and amazingly handsome fellow he is, he was impossible to resist. After far less rewriting and editing than I imagined would be necessary, I am now able to share with you a story that I hope will make you laugh, cry and ultimately feel as though you have loved right along with Mimi and Vance.

Release Day - Torrid Little Affair by Kendall Ryan





TLA Amazon


The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.
