An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

Agatha, Aggie, Kakos lost her boyfriend, her apartment, and now, is one brownie bite away from purging her binge when an invitation to Cupid’s Café shows up on her doorstep. Fighting bulimia and her mother’s constant verbal abuse has never been easy, but this nutritionist is determined to be stronger than her weakest link. She’ll meet a secret admirer at Cupid’s for a morale booster, if nothing else.

Following a break-in and the destruction of his paintings, starving artist Murphy O’Shea finds himself at wit’s end. Not only does he need to create twelve more paintings, but in the midst of another manic depressive episode, the challenge seems impossible. He’s got two months or he’ll have to cancel his first show. The Cupid’s Café invite offers him a chance to find his muse. He doesn’t expect it to be the woman he’s mirrored the past two years paintings on, nor does he plan on being able to offer Aggie the help she needs.

Can they find a way to conquer their inner demons or will they succumb to the idea they aren’t worth a happily ever after?

Music Monday- A Talent for Trouble

This week we have the lovely Landra Graf in with her latest release, A Talent for Trouble!

  1. Sinnerman- Nina Simone

My hero’s song. Emilio Morales, drug runner and not the best person. He’s a sinner in every sense of the word. Plus, he is on the run through most of the story.

2. Thin line- Honeyhoney

This is for my heroine, Antonia ‘Toni’ Smith. She’s my sober alcoholic attempting to get her life back on the right track and get her ship back. This song is all about a woman taking what she wants and having to walk the thin line to do it.

3. luka- Secret Sisters

For the chase scenes and the action this song did some amazing things to channel all those moments. Plus, it’s got a creep-some vibe.

4. Down by the River- The Dirty River Boys

Another action song for me. Reminding me of the tough world my characters live in. How escaping their lives for something better may not be easy.

5. Better Love- Hozier

Every book needs a love song and this one is Emilio and Toni’s. Time and again Hozier creates music that speaks to me. This song hits all those levels. A little dark undertone and more.

What’s your next project on the horizon? A Gamble Of Sheep the second in the Bad Boys of Space series. The first book in the series, A Talent For Trouble, is available now.  It’s high octane, action adventure with romance, snark, and a heavy dose of sexual tension.

Where can your readers find you? I’m always wandering Facebook or Twitter. My website is another way to check out my books and what I’m up to. If you want the latest news I highly suggest signing up for my newsletter via this link: http://eepurl.com/dH-ugL

A Talent for Trouble (Bad Boys of Space Book 1) by [Graf, Landra]

When notorious drug runner Emilio Morales meets desperate bootlegger Antonia Smith, they discover contraband isn’t the only thing worth breaking the law for…

Drug runner Emilio Morales is one deal away from being the sole runner from Earth to the upper planets—until his partner attempts a double-cross. Now, Emilio’s stuck in a disabled spaceship with an unpredictable, attractive female who’s willing to help him out if he’ll assist her in retrieving her ship from an impound facility.

Antonia ‘Toni’ Smith is sick and tired of being beholden to men. The only way to guarantee freedom is to get back her bootlegging ship to run her own business again. When Emilio kills her ticket out, she’s forced to rely on him for assistance. Emilio, the most wanted and annoying man in the solar system, is a sexy-as-hell means to an end.

But every plan the duo makes falls apart and every day they spend in each other’s company increases the tension between them.

With the death toll rising and their defenses low, can Emilio and Toni get the happy ending they want, without falling for each other in the process?

Cupid’s Cafe #3 is now under contract with Inkspell Publishing! Add it to Goodreads for the latest info on the re-release!

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

After the incident that caused Liv Morozov to drop out of college, years later she’s still trying to pick up the pieces of her life. She’s managed to carve out a career for herself as a photographer, but when it comes to guys? Her issues send them running for the hills, every damn time.

Zane Parata has declared himself off-limits for relationships. Between trying to maintain sobriety and the long hours he works as a chef, no one wants to deal with his brand of damage, and he wouldn’t want to burden them in the first place.

When Liv shows up at Cupid’s Café, she never expected to find Zane, her brother’s former best friend who had vanished one day and never returned. The sparks that surged when they were both teens rekindle stronger than ever, and all too fast, Liv and Zane entangle in each other’s lives, breaking their own rules. Except with both struggling with the demons from their past, the love that’s begun to grow is one lapse away from shattering the two of them beyond repair.

She’s going to lose her house.
Kathleen Baum has four months to complete the city’s required code changes to her grandma’s home. Otherwise, she loses it. Strapped for cash, Kat’s only way to get the funds is to bargain with her devil cousin. She agrees to an unwanted makeover, but she’s not good at taking direction, pretend or not.

He’s going to lose his business.
Devid Esposito has worked all his life to build a successful image consulting company, but if he doesn’t start bringing in new clients the business will be bankrupt in three months. The board is ready to oust him when his partner, Kat’s cousin, enters with the opportunity to get his mojo back; all he needs to do is help Kat, with a makeover. Unfortunately, Dev doesn’t take on female clients anymore since the last one broke his heart and used his tips against him.

When they find out they have a common enemy, his heart-breaking client is her code-breaking-whistleblower, and the easiest way to bring the foe down is to accept the other’s help. Losing their hearts to each other was the one thing they didn’t plan for.

Cupid’s Cafe Series!

Cupid’s Cafe is an amazing multi-author series with After Glows Publishing, one I’m thrilled to be a part of tomorrow.

Book One: Exactly Like You by Lori Sizemore

35487282

An invitation to Cupid’s Café will change your life.

Former social worker Roxie Fisher believes she’s cursed to never find happiness and an invitation to Cupid’s Café isn’t going to change her situation. All the same, against her better judgment, she gives it a try. What else does she have to lose?

After the death of his wife, accountant-turned-firefighter Aidan Craig, can’t stop taking ridiculous risks and never turns down a dare. So an invitation to Cupid’s Café is an offer he can’t refuse. What he doesn’t expect is to meet the social worker who helped him through the darkest days of his life. Now she’s the one struggling, and he’s compelled to help.

The two experience an immediate attraction, but Aidan swore to never become involved in another relationship, and Roxie can’t imagine daredevil Aidan being interested in a boring, cat-rescuer like her.

Can Roxie find the simple joy of taking a risk? Is Aidan willing to risk his heart? Or will they both lose out on a chance at true love?
