Blog Tour: Wild for You by Daisy Prescott



Cowboy fantasies. Oh boy, do I have them. I blame the shiny belt buckles and those chaps. Mother of pearl buttons, those chaps.

After getting dumped by my Not Future Husband, I've decided to spend the summer in Aspen exploring new adventures. First on the list is rugged, sexy rodeo champion Justin Garrison, who seems happy to accept the challenge.

What if I fall for the real man behind the fantasy?

*
Being the charming cowboy is an easy role to play. Whenever I'm on the back of a horse or riding a bull, everything's simple, uncomplicated. Running my family's ranch and trying to keep the past buried are a lot harder.

When my path crosses with a beautiful, feisty brunette at a rodeo, I'm not looking for more complications. Zoe Saragossa's not a typical buckle bunny and I'm definitely not her type.

Can a city girl fall for a real cowboy?

Wild for You is a standalone, slow burn cowboy romance. It's part of the Love with Altitude series of standalone romantic comedies set high in the Rocky Mountains.


Wild for You is available for purchase:




Having read a bunch of Daisy Prescott's other novels, I was excited to dive into this one. I simply love stories where two people happen to fall for each other. There's no forced feelings, no elements and odds stacked up against them...just a nice, old-fashioned love story. Justin is not your typical rodeo cowboy. He's quiet, reserved and just living his life running his family's ranch. Not really looking for a buckle bunny, he tends to lean towards a quieter life. Zoe, freshly dumped, is just looking to live her life a bit. Trying to figure out her life, she heads out to the rodeo and finds herself faced with her newfound object of affection. The two embark on a classic tale of falling in love in the most unexpected place. Wild for You is a super-swoony, old-fashioned love story. It follows Daisy's awesome cast of characters from the Love With Altitude series but can totally be read as a standalone.

Blog Tour: Rebel by Rebecca Yarros



She’s Penna Carstairs.

The Renegade they call Rebel.

FMX-treme Magazine’s sexiest female athlete of the year.

There’s no rule in extreme sports she hasn’t broken. No gender barrier she hasn’t demolished.

She’s the woman I met in a bar in Vegas.

The woman I illegally BASE jumped for.

The woman I spent one insane, incredible night with.

But now I’m screwed.

Or rather…not screwed.

Because the woman I can’t get out of my head is the one woman I can never touch again.

I’m Dr. Cruz Delgado—the youngest professor on this campus,

And Penelope Carstairs just walked into my class.


Rebel is available for purchase:





EXCERPT

“Oh God, don’t do that.”

“Do what?”

“That.” He pointed toward my mouth. “Everything I told you in Vegas is still true. You’re still gorgeous, still sexy as hell, still everything that draws me in like a damned magnet, but you’re also everything I can’t have. Don’t you get that? When you pull shit like that on the dance floor, you successfully drive me batshit crazy, watching you in some guy’s arms.” A small laugh escaped him. “Like that kid has any idea what to do with you if he actually managed to catch you.”

“And you do?”

His eyes darkened. “Don’t challenge me like that.”

The tension stretched between us for a quiet moment until I broke the silence. “I didn’t kiss him.”

“I’m well aware, because if you had, I’m not sure if I could have let him walk out of here, and that’s dangerous, Penelope. You are dangerous to me.”

“I’m sorry,” I said truthfully. “Logically, I know nothing can happen between us. I get it. But I see you, and all I can think about is the way you kissed me in Vegas. The way you touched me. I can’t just erase those memories, Cruz. Like I said, somehow you make me do stupid things.”

“You? I make you do stupid things?” he nearly yelled, and I was thankful for the loud, driving beat of the music beyond the office doors. “Woman, I got into a strange car for you. Illegally BASE jumped off a Ferris wheel to stay close to you. Went to jail for you, and I make you do stupid things?”

He stalked forward, his movements smooth like a predator, and a low hum filled my stomach, growing stronger with every step he took.

“I let you stay in my class. Stupid. I look for every reason to run into you, while simultaneously praying you’ll stay far away because I need this job. Stupid. I take one look at you in that fucking dress, and I’m so hard I’m afraid I can’t hide it in a room full of students. Stupid. I can’t stop thinking about the way you taste, the way you open up under me, the way your nails left little half-moons in my shoulders when I found how wet you were for me.”

If he got his hands anywhere near me, he’d find out I was just as wet now. God, his words were the biggest turn-on I’d ever experienced. Next to his abs. Or his arms. Or his mouth. Crap, the man was one giant sex package begging to be unwrapped.

“Cruz,” I whispered as he cupped my face with one hand, his thumb rubbing over my lower lip, while he caged me against the desk with the other.

My tongue licked across the tip of his finger, unable to help myself.

“God, Penelope. You could cost me everything, and yet I’m still in here with you. And this might be the worst choice of all.”

His mouth met mine in a kiss that sent my senses reeling. His tongue swept in, claiming every curve he might have missed last time, until it felt like my mouth belonged to him.



To say that this series ended off on a high note would be somewhat understated. Rebel jumped right off the top  and only continued onwards and upwards from there. I loved the Xtreme sports aspect as I did with the first two novels in The Renegades series. This one was no less packed with BASE jumps and motocross elements. If those weren't enough to peak your interest, the author totally hooks you with this whirlwind romance between Penna and Cruz. What more can we say about Cruz? Penna, literally, picked him up in Vegas and then, by a twist of fate and a splash of destiny, Cruz happens to end up as the professor of a class she's taking during her year aboard/abroad a cruise ship. Penna can't keep Cruz off her mind, and vice versa, but what can they do? This is a story of star-crossed lovers--is it finally Penna's turn to find her happily ever after just as her best friends have or will this be the worst crash and burn she'll experience to date with her heart being the casualty? I've always enjoyed this author's style of writing and this installment was just as enjoyable. The story has quite a bit of depth to it. It's jammed with action, it's fast paced and, yet, she takes the time to loop in characters you're already familiar with from the previous stories. The base characters actually play a pivitol role in this story. I also like how she took time to fill in some secondary characters' stories and developed them a bit. All in all, a fantastic novel and end to an XTREMEly enjoyable series (hah. #thepunlife)!

EXCERPT

“Welcome to Latin American History.”

At that deep, lightly accented voice, my pen fell to the paper, as useless as my brain.

“This class will also serve as your Study At Sea seminar, which means I have the joy of getting to know each of you very well over the next three months since you’ll be writing a thirty-page thesis for me.”

The class groaned, and I slowly dragged my eyes from the paper, past the neck of the red-haired boy in front of me, to the man who stood at the head of our class, casually leaning against his desk. I took in the way his pants hugged his hips, the contrast of his rolled white button-down against his tanned skin, and the loose green tie at his throat. My gaze caught on his lips, the strong line of his nose and cheekbones, to the melty chocolate eyes that were focused on the other side of the room as he addressed the students there. His hair looked like he’d run his hands through it more than a few times, and his teeth flashed white when he grinned, those panty-dissolving dimples appearing.

My heart stopped beating and my breath froze in my lungs, as if the slightest motion would make him disappear. A rush of heat flushed my skin, and the knot in my chest loosened, unraveling as surely as my body had the last time I’d seen him.

“So let’s get started, shall we? I just flew in from the States today, but I’ll be sure to learn all of your names by the end of the week. Now if you’ll let me have this moment, I’ve been waiting eight years to say it— My name is Dr. Delgado.”

Two thoughts slammed into me simultaneously.

One—Delgado. At least now I knew his last name.

Two—Holy. Fucking. Shit. Cruz was my professor.
