[Blog Tour & Spotlight] ILLICIT AFFAIRS by Jo Matthews, Bec Rose, N.J. Cole


Today it’s my pleasure to welcome NJ Cole & Jo Matthews to my blog


For all of my readers who may not be familiar with your work, could you tell us a bit about yourself:

NJ Cole: I have three published books. My first was Midnight Caller which is a paranormal BDSM story. The second was Landslide. This is a love story of submission between a young woman and a powerful older man. Finally I have a short story in Illicit Affairs called Second Chances.


Jo Matthews:  I’ve been editing online stories for a few years, but recently expanded into the world of publishing by editing Midnight Caller and Landslide by NJ Cole, and Embrace Me by Rebecca Turley. I’ve also worked on a few others that have yet to be released.
Working so closely with the authors, they gave me the confidence I needed to try my own hand at writing, and Unexpected Journey is the result.
I’ve also dabbled a bit in cover design, and find that it’s an aspect I really enjoy. Illicit Affairs is one of my designs.



Please summarize this book for the readers here and advise if it is a series book or a stand alone one….

NJ Cole: Second Chances is a stand alone short story.

Calla Moretti married her college sweetheart, Bill. Married life was great at first, but as his career had her dropping out of college and moving away from her family and friends, Calla struggled with her role as a wife and homemaker. Stress due to infertility and Bill’s affairs, had the marriage on the brink of failure. When she drives home in the middle of a thunderstorm and spots first a broken down motorcycle, then the sexy rider, she decides to take a chance and offer him assistance. Realizing fate brought her together with a man who could give her the one thing her husband couldn’t—a baby—Calla decides to take a chance. One romantic night, one big lie, will it save her marriage or fill her heart with more emptiness? Will this be the answer to her prayers? In life, are there truly second chances?
 

Jo Matthews:  Illicit Affairs is a compilation of three erotic tales with women giving into their darkest desires and pursuing the forbidden.

In Unexpected Journey, Sarah thought she met her soulmate in Mitch Chandler. High school sweethearts, they married right after graduation. Eight years later, he is a stranger to her and their marriage is on the rocks. In a halfhearted attempt to placate her, Mitch suggests a trip to Hawaii, but schedules a business meeting to write off the expense.
Aaron Johnson, Mitch’s friend and business partner, agrees to help with the presentation and plans are made for all three to go. What happens when Mitch backs out at the last minute to spend a romantic weekend with his secretary, forcing Aaron’s hand so that he has to accompany Sarah alone?


How much research do you have to do when writing a story?

NJ Cole: It really depends on the story. For Second Chances I did a bit about places in central New Jersey. For other stories, I’ve done quite a bit more research.
 
 
Jo Matthews: I didn’t have to do too much research for this story, but I did make sure that things were accurate. I looked up places in Hawaii that were known for snorkeling, I looked up flights/flight times to see how long it would take them to travel and where they would stop. The rest was prior knowledge of locations and information.


Do you have a favorite book of the ones you have written that you like the most?

NJ Cole: Midnight Caller holds a special place in my heart.
 
Jo Matthews: Well, since Unexpected Journey is my first book/novella that I’ve written, I’d have to say this one. 🙂


What are you currently working on?

NJ Cole: I’m writing the sequel to Midnight Caller, Midnight Eternal.
 
 
Jo Matthews: My plate is a little full right now. I’m currently working on editing Roadside Service by B.L. Wilde (due to be released September 27, 2013). I’m also editing bits of Midnight Eternal by NJ Cole as she writes it, and working with B.L. Wilde on her upcoming book Desire: Part 1 of The Seductors Series.


Do you have a street team or fan club your readers can join?  If so how can they join?

NJ Cole: I have a room where my readers like to hang out. https://www.facebook.com/groups/313768308708806/

Anyone over 18 is welcome.
 
 
Jo Matthews: I have an Author Page on Facebook that people can join if they’d like to follow me. All they need to do is like the page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jo-Matthews/584982844878100



Do you have a favorite Author(s) that you like to read?

NJ Cole: I’d give anyone a chance 🙂
 
 
Jo Matthews: I love reading books by NJ Cole and B.L. Wilde. They are both incredible authors who have continuously inspired me to do more, including writing a story of my own. I will never be able to thank them enough for that!



What are 5 things that you’d like our readers to know about you and your writing that they might not know?

NJ Cole:
1. I truly feel like my characters talk to me.
2. I write their stories as they tell it.
3. I like to write with other people in the doc.
4. I can’t think of any more 🙂
 
 
Jo Matthews: 
1. NJ, Bec, and I have written this book together, but we’ve never actually met in person.
2. I believe in helping other indie authors out in any way I can. I’m an administrator with The Hive Book Reviews and love to put together promo posts for new and established authors.
3. I’m a stay-at-home mom, drive a minivan, and am on the PTO for my son’s school.
4. While my husband supports my writing and editing, he refuses to read any of my work, calling it “Mommy Porn.”
5. When I’m not sure of a grammar or punctuation rule, I actually take the time to look it up. Grammar Girl is one of my favorite websites. 🙂

Thank you both for taking the time to answer my questions.

Unexpected Journey by Jo Matthews

Sarah thought she met her soul mate in Mitch Chandler. High school sweethearts, they married right after graduation. Eight years later, he is a stranger to her and their marriage is on the rocks. In a halfhearted attempt to placate her, Mitch suggests a trip to Hawaii, but schedules a business meeting to write off the expense.

Aaron Johnson, Mitch’s friend and business partner, agrees to help with the presentation and plans are made for all three to go. What happens when Mitch backs out at the last minute to spend a romantic weekend with his secretary, forcing Aaron’s hand so that he has to accompany Sarah alone?

Will an innocent friendship turn into something more as Aaron’s attraction for Sarah grows? How will Sarah manage when she realizes that Aaron is awakening feelings in her that she’s never felt before? The sexual tension burns hot as these two embark on an unexpected journey that neither are prepared for.

Excerpt:

 
The flight to San Diego was quick, though the one to Hawaii was considerably longer. Somewhere over the Pacific, Sarah fell asleep; the day had obviously taken a toll on her emotions and exhausted her. I wasn’t really tired myself, so I grabbed a magazine from the caddy in front of me and started flipping through it. Not ten minutes later, she shifted in her sleep and leaned over, her head resting on my shoulder.
I froze in place, unsure of what to do. Part of me was screaming to wake her up or at least move her, while the other part of me—the part that tended to take over in any man when there was a sexy goddess nearby—wanted me to savor the moment. I must have warred with myself for three minutes straight until I decided it didn’t matter. There was no harm in letting Sarah sleep on my shoulder on a plane to Hawaii. No harm at all, considering her husband was the one who put us on the flight together.
Unable to resist any longer, I turned my head into her hair and breathed in her intoxicating scent. She smelled like wildflowers and sunshine, and I couldn’t help but inhale more deeply as I closed my eyes.

About the Author:

Hot Summer Nights by Bec Rose

Annie Murphy had the picture perfect life. A beautiful home, a wonderful son, and a husband who adored her. It was every woman’s dream until her husband of over twenty years came out of the closet, leaving her a forty-five year old divorcee struggling to regain her confidence. Needing a distraction, she agrees to allow her son’s friend, Jamie, to spend the summer at her house while working as an intern. When Jamie, the cute female intern she’d been expecting turns out to be Jaime, the hot male intern with abs to drool over, it kicks Annie’s fantasies into overdrive. When she realizes that her desires are not one sided, it’s more than the temperature that causes some hot summer nights.
Excerpt:


It seemed like forever before he finally made his way back downstairs, and I heard him rummaging through the fridge for something before he walked into the den carrying some homemade chocolate mousse. I moved to the main sofa, sitting down next to him so we were both within reach of the dessert. “I hope you don’t mind, but I made this before dinner. I have a bit of a sweet tooth.” He grinned at me as he took a bite. I smiled back and dipped my spoon in, groaning at the amazing taste that exploded in my mouth when I took my first bite.

“Oh, god, Jaime, you’re going to make me fat if you cook like this all the time,” I laughed. When I heard no reply, I looked next to me, seeing Jaime staring at my lips with-if I wasn’t completely misinterpreting it-a look of lust in his eyes.“Oh, um, I’m sorry?” He seemed confused.

“I just said that you’re going to make me fat if you keep cooking like this.”.

“You don’t have to worry about that, Annie. You have an amazing figure if you don’t mind me saying.” I was surprised by his comment. It had been a long time since anyone had complimented me like that. “Oh, well, um…thank you Jaime,” I replied, embarrassed.

We finished off the dessert, both of us silently deciding to stay on the couch next to each other by settling back as Jaime changed the channel to watch an old movie. It was nice to sit with someone and not feel the need to fill the air with unnecessary conversation. Jaime was easy to just be with, and I was once again glad it had turned out to be a male houseguest instead of a female.

Excerpt:

Staring into my eyes, he lowered his head. I could have moved, spoken, coughed…anything, but instead I lifted my chin and allowed him to kiss me.

At first it was chaste, it really was, but when I didn’t pull away, he didn’t either. I felt his tongue poke from between his velvet lips and lick over my lower one. I gasped, and he used that opportunity to find his way into my mouth. As my body began to shake, I groaned. I had to stop this. If I didn’t, I’d end up having sex with him—a total stranger. I knew that because I was ovulating, if I did sleep with him, there was a good chance that I’d become pregnant.

I’d become pregnant.

I had stiffened up at my epiphany, causing him to pull back. “Oh, shit. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done that.”
My mind was racing with the possibility of becoming pregnant tonight. I could go home to Bill in the morning and he and I could have sex. He’d think the baby was his, and maybe it would be, I reasoned with myself. He’d never know and our marriage would be fixed.
