Oceans Apart by Emma Fitzgerald Release Day 11/4/14

BOOK:  Oceans Apart
SERIES: Book One – Ocean Dreams
AUTHOR: Emma Fitzgerald
RELEASE DATE:  November 4th, 2014
Nobody ever cares for second place.
Talented public relations associate, Annie Scott, knows second place well. She has never been anyone’s priority and is sick of wallowing in self pity, sick of being an option. In a snap decision, she flees her hometown of Nashville for the unknown shores of Sydney, Australia. There she can be whoever she wants to be. Perhaps, the enforced solitude will give her back her identity and kickstart a new path in life.
Professional surfer, Cam Hart, is home on leave from the Pro Tour, and in desperate need of some rest, relaxation and maybe, a little female company. All extremely achievable at his home in Bronte, Sydney. There will be women willing and waiting for him, of that he has no doubt. He’s never been a relationship kind of guy, and after his embarrassing defeat for the recent World Title, the idea of losing himself in between the sheets for some no-strings fun, definitely has appeal.
Fate throws Cam and Annie in each other’s path. Their attraction to each other is immediate. Cam believes he has found the perfect girl to distract him for a few weeks, while Annie is ready to throw caution to the wind and dive into a holiday romance. The two drifting souls soon realise that their chemistry and passion is more than they bargained for.
Cam has never wanted to entrust his heart to anyone again. But, with Annie, he sees that he may indeed want a future, a change from his impulsive and wild ways. Could Cam actually be capable of such change? Should Annie consider Cam to be more than a summer fling, or will she be bound by her insecurities and not believe him worth the risk? Will she return to her hometown, the same as she left it: alone

Cam looked down at Annie. She was seeing the view of the beach through fresh eyes and her wonderment made Cam realize what he took for granted. Strands of Annie’s hair had fallen out of her ponytail and were fluttering across her face. Cam moved his hand up and tucked them behind her ear. His touch made goose bumps jump to the surface of her skin. Annie tensed slightly before a warm rush of shivers went through her body. His thumb lightly rubbed over her cheek while the rest of his hand slid around the back of her head. Annie looked up and directly into Cam’s eyes. They stared at each other for what seemed like forever to Annie. He then leaned down slowly and got closer to her, their faces just a few inches from the other. Annie broke eye contact and looked down but Cam placed his other hand on her chin and brought her head back up. He held on to both sides of her face, moved in, and gently kissed her. Softly, sweetly. Then Annie released a sigh, which seemed to give Cam more confidence. His hands moved from her face to around her waist and he pulled her in toward him. Annie’s hands were flat against his chest and she could feel his heart was beating just as fast as her’s. His kiss changed from soft to more intense as their tongues tussled together. Annie was more than willing to match what he gave her. Cam turned Annie around and pushed her against the stone wall bordering the side of the balcony. His hands ran down the sides of Annie’s breasts, which peaked her nipples instantly. If she weren’t already highly turned on, that move would have done it! Just as Cam was about to lift the tank top up and over her head, a loud wolf whistle shook him out of his trance.

every woman deserves an accessory pre-release


Book Title: Every Woman Deserves an Accessory
Author: Von Powell
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: November 2014
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions


When Raquel Davis, a successful, but jaded makeup artist first heard about personal trainer Javier Vasquez, she wasn’t interested. Her marriage was crumbling and her friendships were becoming destructive. Overweight and lacking confidence, Raquel wasn’t ready or interested in meeting anyone new.

Fast forward five years. Raquel is eighty pounds slimmer with much more confidence in herself. She has ended her marriage and traded in the flash of a diamond ring for the flashbulbs of the red carpet. But, despite all her material and career success, she wants something more.

Raquel has survived heartbreak, handled single motherhood, and thrived in the world of fashion, but will she allow herself to take a chance on love again? Although she is now use to wearing diamonds only on her ears, perhaps Javier will be able to show Raquel an accessory or two that she’s been missing.

She knew what she wanted. She knew what she needed. But she had no idea what she deserved.

Meet the Author

Author Von Powell

How did this high school teacher turn into a steamy book author? Well, honestly Von Powell has always been a writer; who recently started teaching. Growing up as an only child on Chicago’s south side encouraged Von to use his creativity to have fun when it was too snowy and cold to go outside or too hot and violent to play with his friends. Thus, as a child to keep himself occupied, he would draw pictures and create short stories to go with them. Encouraged by his teachers, Von decided that maybe one day after he finished law school, it would be a good time to write. However, when the time came for Von to attend law school, he deferred his offers and committed to serving for two years as a Teach For America Corp member. While teaching, Von realized just how much he loved to connect with people’s emotions and admittedly saw writing as a way to impact more lives. Von confesses that “not attending law school was one of the hardest decisions that I’ve had to make.” Von turned down offers to attend law school in order to, “give back to others, especially young men who look like me and come from similar backgrounds.” The national education program, Teach For America, allowed Von the forum for him to make it happen. Ultimately, serving others was one of the best decisions Von could have made for himself as he smiles and says, “Working with my students inspired me to do what I love and follow my dreams. They’re a huge support system.”

Von’s debut novel, Every Woman Deserves an Accessory, will release digitally and in paperback November 25, 2014. Von promises that it will get readers flushed with fever, sweaty with anticipation, and laughing as they fight back the tears while reading.


They sat with their drinks near the back of the coffee shop. For her a latte, and straight black coffee for Javier.

“So how’d you get into the business of makeup? Was this what you always wanted?” Javier asked.

She smiled. He possessed a certain innate charisma.

“Business?” she asked narrowing her eyes. “Impressive that you view my line of work that way. Most see it as me playing dress up.”

They shared a small laugh accompanied with coy stares from her and a more earnest stare from him. He was waiting for a real reply to his question, not some sly remark. She sipped her coffee while trying not to fall too deeply for the smell of his cologne.

“Uh, I grew up knowing that I didn’t want a traditional work life.” Raquel tucked her hair behind her ears and tugged on the bill of her hat. “I wanted to be able to travel and make enough money to sustain myself all while doing what I love.”

He stared at her with reassuring eyes. He was actually listening to her. His focus was distracting and caught her completely off guard. Raquel knew how to respond to a man ogling her breasts, thighs, or her ample ass. But this was new ground.

“So how is that working out for you?” He leaned back in his chair to stretch. The bottom of his shirt lifted as he swung his arms above his head and took in a deep breath. He was unabashed by his slightly exposed abdominal hair and what looked to be the beginnings of a six pack. Raquel tilted her neck and rubbed the back of it. He pulled his shirt down and she caught herself and sat up straight.

“Yeah, it’s working out just fine. Thank God,” she responded.

He considered her for a moment before replying, “No judgment, but your ‘Thank God’ didn’t sound like praise; more like a plea if that makes sense.”

She set her drink down. “I wasn’t certain how far makeup would take me. I toyed with the idea of being a lawyer after college because it seemed like a natural progression.” Raquel recounted her undergraduate days of wanting to be a civil rights attorney who did her clients’ makeup. That was how she planned to reconcile her passionate, analytical, yet highly creative mind. But that dream never materialized.

She picked up her latte again, “I had to be honest with myself. Law sounded great but it wasn’t my true passion. This, is.” Javier stared at her and his stare made her feel exposed and vulnerable. She sipped her latte and thought of his cologne.

It was subtle, yet strong enough for her to catch hints of citrus, sandalwood, and geranium. Masculine, yet not overly powerful. It reminded Raquel of how she had first perceived him: refined yet confident.

“Hearing your success story gives me inspiration.” He flashed his smile. “I thought about being a lawyer too. But I was never good at lying.”

Raquel coughed. I’ll be the judge of that, she thought.

“Plus, I love what I do,” he said flexing his biceps as he rubbed his fingers through his hair, still wet from his post-workout shower.

He confessed, “I love helping people and personal training helps people in a really huge way.”

“Indeed it does,” she replied. She eyed him, feeling like a star-struck teenager having coffee with the most famous man on earth.

“You looking forward to some workout sessions?” Javier asked.

Nervously she smiled, “Yeah, kinda.”

“Why do you seem nervous?” He leaned forward and gazed at her face like it was a full moon.

“I’ve never really worked out with anyone besides my girls a couple of times.”

“So this will all be new to you?”

“Exactly,” she replied as she watched him lean back, scratch his stomach, and laugh. Her eyebrows arched, “Why are you laughing?”

Javier replied, “Cause’ you have no reason to be nervous.” Then, after a pause, he really looked at her. “You’ll enjoy everything we do.”

Raquel gulped and returned to rubbing her neck.

“I’ll give you a call and we’ll set up our first session. We’ll start talking about goals and all that when I see you again.”

“Sounds good,” she wished that she had ordered water with her latte because she was feeling really warm inside. Raquel thought only water could quench her thirst.

As they stood to say their goodbyes, he hovered over her and reached down smoothly to hug the sensitive skin between her butt and lower back. Javier was firm, but respectful. Before she even had an adequate amount of time to process his embrace, he had kissed her on her cheek and grabbed her hand. He escorted Raquel outside of the shop. He hailed a taxi for her, waited until she got in, and secured her seatbelt over her shoulder.

“Good meeting with you today.” He whispered.

She nodded her head in silent agreement.

Javier said, “Finally got to put a face to the name Mariabelle’s been bragging about for so long.”

Javier winked at Raquel as she started to blush.

He teased, “How many years has it been since she told you about me? Five?”

“Look,” Raquel tried to explain, but Javier silenced her by bringing a finger to his lips.

“No need,” Javier said, tapping the side of the cab door.

Raquel smiled, flushed with relief, and happy with hearing that Mariabelle had been bragging about her.

“I’ll see you soon,” she murmured with her eyelashes fluttering. He shut the door and waved as the cab pulled away. She slid down in her seat, exhaling, wondering what she’d just gotten herself into.
