Halfway Hidden - Imprint

When fear mixes with desire, who can you trust?

Rachel Stone is stuck, contemplating that very question. Spending her time as a bartender in an isolated West Virginia town, she hides behind dark hair and an assumed name. She exists from day to day, trying not to let her past overwhelm her. When a tall stranger walks into the bar at closing time, her attempts at hiding turn to dust. Muscled and intense, he is attractive enough for Rachel to ignore her instincts and listen to her baser desires. As a storm brews in the skies of West Virginia, confusion builds in Rachel’s mind. What begins as flirtation explodes into a darker, more primal passion, leading her to question everything she thought she knew. While snow blankets the outside world, they are forced to remain inside, confronting their demons and the sizzling attraction between them. Submitting to their urges is easy; learning who to trust is anything but.

About the Author

Carrie Elks lives near London, England and loves to write sexy stories with a dash of intrigue. At the age of twenty-one she left college with a political science degree, a healthy overdraft and a soon-to-be husband. She loves to travel and meet new people, and has lived in the USA and Switzerland as well as the UK. Nowadays, she spends her days sorting out people’s problems at work and her evenings glued to a computer keyboard. An avid social networker, she tries to limit her Facebook and twitter time to stolen moments between writing chapters. Her favorite authors include L.H. Cosway, Samantha Young, Cara McKenna and C.J. Roberts. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can usually be found baking, drinking wine or working out how to combine the two.

Fabulous Friday – 20th September 2013

It’s Friday!

What a week it has been. I’ve managed to cut back my hours at work so I can concentrate on editing Halfway Hidden, and start to write my next book (when I get somewhere, I’ll definitely let you know!). I’m finding I have to be very disciplined; sitting down at my laptop at eight am, then writing straight through for a few hours. Otherwise I’ll pick up a book and before I know it, it’s time to get the children from school. I save editing for the evening, when I can do it on my iPad in one hand, and a glass of wine in the other. But that’s another story!

Next Wednesday (25th September) sees the unveiling of the cover for Halfway Hidden, something that I’m very excited about. If you get a chance to look, please go over to the CBL Review Blog, hosted by the beautiful Laurynne, and see why I’m so pleased with the work done by Mayhem Creations. The book is already listed here on Goodreads – and is due out in November.

Two other books have been released by Mayhem Publishing this week.

Whispers in the Dark by K.I. LynnSlick as Ides by Chanse Lowell

The first is Whispers in the Dark by K.I. Lynn, a hot novella about a power outage and a sexy neighbor – what’s not to like?

The second, Slick as Ides by Chanse Lowell, is a full length novel with computer hacking, stolen cars and a handsome genius. Sounds right up my street.

I plan to read them this week, so will make sure I post a review in a future  ‘What to Read Wednesday’. If you get to read them, be sure to let me know what you think.

That’s it for now, thank you so much for popping by. I hope you all have a great weekend. 🙂
