Where does time go? It’s Thursday already, and time to visit with a favored friend and a book I thoroughly enjoyed. Christy is one of my Scribbler Sisters, members of a small group of new authors who chat and support one another on a daily basis. Like myself and three others in the group, Christy was a Front Porch Romance author, left high and dry, when that publisher closed its doors, abandoning its authors and their books.Trust Again is the second book in a series of romances. The first, Begin Again is available through Crimson Romance. Each book in the series stands alone, and are great reads.
When FPR closed, Christy took the bull by the horns and chose to self-publish the books she had with that publisher. The nice thing about learning a new skill is that you can assist others. If you’re considering self-publishing, check out Fancy Formatting by Christy. She’ll get your manuscript up and running in no time on a variety of e-pub venues and get your POD done for you as well. Her prices are great too.
This morning, Christy’s brought an excerpt from her new release, Trust Again, to entertain you. Take it away, Christy!
About Trust Again:
Trust Again is only .99 pennies! Available in e-book and paperback!
A note from Christy Newton:
Reviews for Trust Again:
“Jake and Ellie…..ah what can I say. They are both such likeable people. Christy Newton is excellent at writing characters that you want to read about, you want to follow their journey, you want them to have their dreams come true.
This book is well written, editing is top notch, the story flows, and it really is a book deserving of 5 stars. It’s a book I would read again.
Congratulations Ms Newton on a lovely book, your writing just gets better and better.”
“Ellie leaves her abused boyfriend whom she lives with in New York and comes back to the small quiet town she was brought up in where her dad lives. Her dad wants her to take over his toy store which she does with some renovations and adding another part that she also totally loves a candy shop added on. Her contractor/builder by trade Jacob has just recently moved back to the small town where his close friend lives. Both of them have difficult trust issues for different reasons and they try and chance a relationship, but who knows if either of them will ever be able to trust again? Loved all the characters and loved the surprises throughout the book. Loved Christy’s book always a joy to read her books. Way to go Christy another hit.
Excerpt from Trust Again:
Her fantasy of being Willy Wonka was coming true! A plump, older man handed them both a white paper cap to put over their hair and matching paper booties to cover their shoes before walking down the aisles.
“Have fun. Remember not to touch the machines.” The man winked and turned to leave. It looked like they were on their own. They peeked into large empty vats and walked along the long assembly line. Though the equipment had all been cleaned, a faint scent of sugar and cocoa remained in the air. On the end of the silver counter were dozens of fresh chocolate samples. Jacob picked up a dark truffle with pink drizzle and put it to Ellie’s lips. She opened her mouth and the smooth, velvety richness touched her tongue. Her eyes rolled back in pleasure.
“Watching you eat chocolate is quite the turn-on.” Jacob’s voice turned husky, sending signals to places that had awakened in her.
Embarrassed, she grabbed a piece and shoved it into Jacob’s mouth, causing his eyes to widen. She laughed. “Sorry.”
He picked up another. “This one we’ll share.” Jacob held up the bite of chocolate for Ellie to nibble and as soon as it was between her teeth he removed his hand and placed his mouth over hers. If it got any hotter in here, all the chocolate was going to melt. With her eyes closed she pressed herself closer to Jacob’s body. Before she lost control, she pulled away. “That gives new meaning to a chocolate kiss.”
His eyes searched hers. She swallowed and he kissed the tip of her nose. “I’ll say.”
Just as he was about to take another candy his phone rang. He looked down at the number and raised an eyebrow before turning off his phone.
Christy Newton is a hopeless romantic and writes many genres of romance. She just might be the only author out there that doesn’t drink caffeine, but dark chocolate is her must have. She falls in love with each of her heroes and hopes you will too! Christy is the author of the More Than Treasure Series and the Love Again Collection.
