Upcoming Release Announcement…

Today is the day we’ve been teasing you about for months.

As we head toward copy edits, we wanted to introduce you to our upcoming release.

And the title is…

{drumroll}

The Espionage Effect

Release Date: July 14th, 2015

Genre: Romantic Suspense / Action-Adventure Romance /
Erotic Romance (sensual, explicit, sexual awakening)

This is a standalone full-length novel. 

Description:

When desire sets you free…control is a matter of perception.

I’m Devin Hill.

Darkness taints my soul.

I’m suffocating. Drowning.

The sweet promise of air? Pure illusion.

Tested as a genius at age seven, I hide my emotions, become what they expect…bury my secrets. At nineteen, I trudge toward a predestined path, blinders on, heart safeguarded.

Until I dare to be wild.

Until Alec Marquez crashes into my world.

Until all that follows redefines everything I’ve ever known.

What happens when you stumble into a world of spies…and discover you belong there?

Do you like romance a little more erotic, edgy, darker, filled with action adventure, toned with mystery, complete with a twist…or two?

If so…

Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations is currently designing the cover. Stay tuned for the cover reveal in June through InkSlinger PR and save the date for The Espionage Effect this July 14, 2015!

Meanwhile, please enjoy another sexy scene glimpse involving Cade and Hannah…

Release-eve Appetizer

“Watching you move in that dress is the only thing keeping me sane.” Though I spoke the words, I forced my gaze outward to the horizon line of party guests. I was a mere mortal man, and Hannah had turned into a goddess.

“Oh, you mean this old thing?” she teased, stalking forward into my line of sight, showing me the backless silver silk as it fell in a “V” just below her waist. There was nothing on underneath, which I noticed every time she turned her back to me.

I growled low as she turned slowly. “Be careful, Hannah. A man can only take so much.”

A wicked smile appeared on her angelic face. The temptress had returned.

She dropped her hands to her hips. Beautiful didn’t even begin to cover it. Dark waves of hair framed her face, swept down on one side below her shoulder. Those hazel eyes had become dark, glistening in the shadows.

A smirk lit up her face. “I’ve no idea what you’re talking about.”

“You know exactly what I’m talking about.” I stepped forward and brushed my hands over hers, where they were still propped on her hips, then slid mine over her ass. Proprietary, I know. But I laid claim just the same. She didn’t stop me.

Her eyes simply flared wide. She bit her lower lip, then slowly released it.

I stared long and hard at the luscious lip that I wanted to bite, suck on, taste in long, slow licks until she surrendered to more. My gaze rose upward to meet her eyes. Dilated. For me.

“All I see is a potato sack, about to be shredded.”

A slow smile curved her lips. “You mean, you think I’m sexy.”

“Devastatingly so.”

News from the Bastion Writing Desks

Hello, everyone!

We wanted to give you an update on the No Weddings Series.

So many tasks are happening with our team members all at once…

As my husband Stone Tweeted earlier today, we sent No Weddings off to the copy editor this morning for a final editing pass before we shine it up for the two proofreaders.

This week, we also spoke with a web designer who will be revamping the Kat Bastion website to correspond with all of our genres and for both of  us as authors.

And I just got another email from Sarah Hansen at Okay creations. The plans she has for these covers are really exciting. We look forward to being able to share them with you!

Over the next two weeks, Stone and I will be working on One Funeral and Two Bar Mitzvahs in their different editing stages, and Three Christmases is undergoing its first developmental editing.

{blinks}

See what I mean? A flurry of activity is happening all over the place. We’re relying heavily on a wall calendar and to-do lists to get us through the whirlwind of plans.

In the meantime, would you like to be a part of our team? Anything you can do to help promote the books would be greatly appreciated.

We’ll keep you in the loop as things progress with events like cover reveals, release launches, tours, and interviews, so stay tuned.

Do you enjoy reading male 1st person POV romance?

We’d love for you to add No Weddings to your Goodreads shelf:

{whispers} From there, add the other books in the series too! :)

Thank you all for your ongoing support!

Your humble shoe and boot,

~ Kat & Stone
