[Blog Tour] Tied Bond by Emma Hart

Title: TIED BOND (Book 4)
Author: Emma Hart
Release Date: February 25, 2016
Holly Woods is going to hell in a handbasket—but this time, Satanists aren’t to blame. Halloween is.Nonna doesn’t understand why there are skeletons and demons everywhere. Mom is threatening to stitch a devil into Nonna’s pillowcase if she doesn’t shut up. Bek is bumbling over a date with Jason, the handsome FBI agent who conveniently got himself relocated to Austin, and I… Well. I’m considering running away to a town without the crazies.Nothing new here.Everything is going smoothly—too smoothly—and I can’t shake the feeling that something is about to happen. Drake insists I’m being paranoid… But when a body turns up at the Holly Woods Halloween party, we have a whole lot more than a murderer to worry about.Because the prime suspect is his mom.And it’s my job to prove she’s innocent. (Tied Bond is the fourth full-length book in the Holly Woods Files series and does not stand alone.)

My Thoughts
I have been invested in the Holly Woods files since the very beginning. I thought I had seen it all, but I must admit that I was surprised that things could get even crazier! Tied Bond is full of more mystery, another murder, and one even crazier Nonna! Emma Hart really brought out her best in Tied Bond. This series just keeps getting better and better. It keeps climbing with the relationship that Noelle and Drake hold!

In the previous books in Holly Woods files murders were solved, thanks to Noelle, the brilliant and smart girl. This time another murder occurred in little old Holly Woods and much more is at stake. The prime suspect is Drake's mom! Noelle promises Drake that she won't get involved anymore, because in previous books, she has been in face-to-gun situations. But will Noelle just stand by and do nothing while an innocent person is being wrongfully accused?

This books brings in my favorite characters from the past, as well as some new ones that we have never seen before! It was beautifully tied in and the story flowed nicely. We get to see a new little addition, which is Bek dating! *gasp* Everyone is surprised by this and I love the FBI agent she has a date with, but I have a feeling this isn't the detective she wants. I loved that Emma Hart threw in this new little romance! Watching romance/love unfold is one of my favorite things!

I loved that Drake wasn't allowed to be all alpha in this book. We always see him as the lead detective, but this time he has to step down because his mom is the prime suspect. I got to see this whole new side to him that was adorable. His mom is very special to him and he doesn't want to disappoint her. I saw his vulnerability in not being able to do anything to help his mom out of this situation. I also go to see his relationship with Noelle grow. I love reading their interactions. It always leads to fun!

Now, Noelle is as fierce as ever. She handles everything so well and I love her! She is a strong woman and I got to see just how much she loves and cares for Drake. What I didn't expect is for Nonna to be fierce! I mean whoa! That lady is crazy and I love her for it. She brought fun and laughter into this book!

Tied Bond was more than what I expected. It gave me more to laugh about and more mystery than ever before. I really cannot recommend these books enough. I am telling you, pick them up now! They will have you wanting a detective of your own! Let me tell you, Drake Nash is HOT, all ALPHA, and all kinds of SEXY.

Twisted Bond Book 1
I’m an Italian-Texan woman in a family full of cops. I’m passionate and shoot before I think. You only f*ck with me if you’re stupid. Photograph cheating spouses. Hand over the evidence. Cash my check.That was my plan when I returned home to Holly Woods, Texas, and became a private investigator.Finding the dead body in my dumpster? Yeah… Given the choice, I think I would have opted out of that little discovery, especially since all three of my brothers are cops. And my Italian grandmother is sure the reason I’m single is because of my job.Of course, my connection to the victim is entirely coincidental. Until I’m hired by her husband to investigate her murder and shoved bang-smack into the path of Detective Drake Nash.My nemesis, a persistent pain in my ass, and one hell of a sexy son of a bitch.Shame he still holds a grudge from that time I shot him in the foot twelve years ago, or we could have something. In another life.So now all I have to do is avoid my nonna’s blind dates, try not to blackmail my brothers into giving me confidential police files, and absolutely do not point my gun at Drake Nash. Or kiss him. Or jump his bones.All while I hunt down the killer.Sounds totally simple—until a second body proves that sometimes things that start as coincidences don’t always end up that way…

Tangled Bond Book 2 
One date with the sexier-than-sin Detective Drake Nash. Simple.Until you take into account that my brother finally proposed to his girlfriend, so Nonna is on a warpath—and the crazy old bat has Cupid by the balls.The upcoming mayoral elections has everyone running on full speed, and while I couldn’t give any less craps about the corrupt Holly Woods mayor’s office, a dead body in the middle of a campaign speech has me thrown right into the middle of it. The victim is close to the mayor, but all he cares about is minimizing the damage to his campaign, so he hires me to work alongside Drake to close the case as quickly as possible.Bad news for our tentative relationship.We disagree far more than we agree, but being at loggerheads won’t get this murder solved… Or deal with the arrival of someone from his past.The mysteries behind the murder aren’t the only things unraveling, and despite being knee-deep in lies and corruption and bonds so tangled they’re almost indecipherable, I have to figure out if I’m willing to fight for Drake the way I do justice…Or if he’ll be my one who gets away.

(Please see the damage done to Mom’s new curtains.)Unfortunately, when the danger comes, it comes in the form of something Holly Woods has never seen. The town is rocked to its core, and once again, I’m in danger. Only this time, it isn’t because of my clients—this time, I’m in danger because of who I am… Because of my heritage.And despite the HWPD’s best efforts, the bodies keep on piling up.Drake’s determined to protect me. I’m determined that I can do it myself.Danger. Mystery. Darkness. Malice.It’ll be a miracle if any of us make it out of this with guns unfired, cupcakes still frosted, and hearts intact…

Hello everyone! I am Tanya from T & G Book Boutique and I am beyond excited to have this chance to interview Grayson and Meagan. Both of yall are pretty amazing! Your love story is up their with my all time favorites. 

Tanya: Man Grayson, your even hotter than I could have imagined! *blushes profusely* 

Smiling wide, Grayson replies, “Why thank you, Tanya. I’m glad to have exceeded your expectations.”

Tanya: Grayson, when you were stripper boy did you ever want to settle down? 

With a laugh, Grayson shakes his head. “No. Never even crossed my mind to be honest.” 

Tanya: This is for both of you! What was the first thing that captured your attention about each other?

Glancing at one another, Meagan clears her throat. “I’d have to say his smile is what caught my attention. Of course his insanely handsome face and rockin’ body helped.”

“For me it was Meg’s eyes. I’d never met anyone who could look at me like she hated me and wanted me all at the same time.” 

Tanya: I learned so much about you but I feel like I still need to know so much! What are your hobbies? 

Grayson answers first. “I love to run. It relaxes me and let’s me slip away from reality for a bit.” 

“I’m addicted to knitting. I’ve made some of the most awful looking blankets. You’d think with as much as I do it I’d get better.” 

Grayson laughs. “But instead she seems to get worse at it.” 

Nodding, Meagan says, “It’s true. I’m the worlds worse knitter.”  

Tanya: Is their something strange that any of you two can do that’s unique?

Looking at each other with questioning faces, they both answer, “No.” 
Grayson gives a wicked smile. “Unless you want this to turn R rated, Tanya.” 

Tanya: Describe your perfect kiss.

Meagan grins from ear to ear. “For me the perfect kiss is when you’re not expecting it. When Grayson takes me in his arms and kisses me for no reason … yeah. That’s the perfect kiss.” 

Grayson nods. “Every kiss with, Meg is perfect.”

Tanya: Meagan please tell me one of the sexiest things and one of the most romantic things Grayson has ever done for you? 

Lifting her eyes I thought for a few moments, Meagan replies, “Sexiest? I would say the first time he gave me a private strip show, but honestly it’s when he is playing with the kids. I watch him interact with them and it is a huge turn on. The most romantic thing? It has to be when he arranged dinner for our first anniversary. He rented out my favorite restaurant in Austin, hired a piano player to play my favorite songs, and had the restaurant make everything on the menu that I’d ever said I liked. That night when we went to our hotel room, every flat surface was filled with roses. It smelled amazing.” 

Tanya: Tell me one thing that you don’t like about each other.

“He leaves wet towels on the bed.” 

“She bitches about the wet towels I leave on the bed.” 

Tanya: What is one thing that you love about each other?

Meagan gazes into Grayson’s eyes. “I love the way he loves me unconditionally.” 

With a wide grin, Grayson replies, “I love that she doesn’t put up with my shit.” 

Tanya: What do you see your future like?

Meagan smiles. “Lots of laughter, and love. Sitting on the front porch watching our kids grow up. Counting every day as a blessing.” 

Tanya: What are your passions?

“Besides my family, helping Meg with her work. Seeing how passionate she is for helping others inspires me to be a better person.” 

“My kids, Gray, helping kids who feel like they have no hope.”

Tanya: Meagan, what do you feel when Gray dances for you?

“Oh if I answered that my father might beat Gray’s ass.” 

Tanya: Grayson, how did you learn to dance?! This question just popped up! And know I NEED to know. Sooo…

Chuckling, he answers, “Self taught. No formal dance lessons here. I guess I just have it in my blood to move.” Turning to Meagan, Grayson wiggles his eyebrows while she rolls her eyes.

Tanya: Ok I think I have grilled both of you enough, but one final question. What is one of your favorite memories of each other?

Looking at each other they both smile. “That’s easy and I’m pretty sure I speak for Meg on this one as well. The first time we said we loved one another.” 

Meagan nods. “Yep. Totally one of my favorite memories.” 

Tanya: I can’t thank you both enough for stopping by T & G Book Boutique! I love having these interviews with my favorite characters. It gives me a chance to get to know you a little more, so thank you! Hopefully I will be invited to one of your family gatherings. *hint hint* Maybe I can crash into one hot cowboy! You know, just a suggestion. Well, thanks again!

Meagan and Grayson both laugh. “Thank you for having us, Tanya. And you’ll always have an open invite to come out to Mason and hang out anytime you want! Isn’t that right, Gray?” 

“Hell yeah!”

Kelly Elliott is married to a wonderful Texas cowboy who has a knack for making her laugh almost daily and supports her crazy ideas and dreams for some unknown reason...he claims it's because he loves her!
She’s also a mom to an amazing daughter who is constantly asking for something to eat while her fingers move like mad on her cell phone sending out what is sure to be another very important text message. In her spare time she loves to sit in her small corner overlooking the Texas hill country and write. One of her favorite things to do is go for hikes around her property with Gus....her chocolate lab and the other man in her life, and Rose, her golden retriever.

[Cover Reveal] Stuck-Up Suit by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


(A standalone novel)
Release date: 4/11/2016
Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
RELEASE DATE: April 11th, 2016
It started out like any other morning on the train. Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle. He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world. Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God? Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it. When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left.  So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out. I might have picked it up. I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers. I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days—until I finally conjured up the courage to return it. When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me. So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office. I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though.
 I didn’t expect him to text back. I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell. I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met. The two of us couldn’t have been any more different.
 Yet, you know what they say about opposites. When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract—we consumed each other. Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over. All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
