Book Blitz: Silenced Memories by Brittney Sahin



Silenced Memories by Brittney Sahin 
Publication date: September 15th 2015
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Synopsis:

Kate Adams has never found it difficult to keep a professional relationship with her clients . . . but then she’s never had a client like Michael Maddox. From the moment she arrives in Charlotte, Kate is tongue-tied by the devastatingly gorgeous former Marine and intelligence genius turned multi-millionaire entrepreneur. Michael seems at first glance to be the perfect catch, except for one problem. He doesn’t do relationships. And Kate doesn’t do one-night stands.
But as the tension mounts between them, Kate discovers she has larger problems—an untraceable stalker . . . and a dangerous past. When Michael offers his protection, Kate is grateful, and yet afraid. For as they grow closer, she realizes that Michael has his own secret past. And while he might save her life, he will surely break her heart.

“Did you tell Julia that we’ve met already?”
Startled, Kate turned toward him, her soft eyes looking at him from beneath long eyelashes. Her arched brows gave hint of her embarrassment. “I am so sorry about your shirt. You should let me pay for it.”
“Did you know whom I was last night?” he asked with a deep voice.
She touched the back of her neck, as if working out a kink. “Yes.”
“Why didn’t you say something?” His eyes narrowed on her, and he took a step closer.
“I. . . .” Could she tell him she had been completely tongue-tied by his devastating good looks? “Honestly, I did not think you would remember me, and then I was in a hurry, so I just kind of rushed out when your friend showed up.” Her poker face was failing her.
“You thought I would forget you?”
His words sent shivers dancing up her spine, and she could have sworn she had a heart palpitation. She bit her bottom lip.
“If we are going to work together, I would strongly suggest you not do that,” he murmured, staring at her lips. His smoldering blue eyes turned a shade darker.
She allowed his words to hang in the air for a moment, free of gravity, as she contemplated the appropriate response. She couldn’t help but wonder if she’d wind up being the fourth planner fired. Was he attracted to her, or was it a game he was playing to unnerve her? She chose to ignore his comment and maintain professionalism. “Mr. Maddox, how would you feel about an auction?”
“Please, call me Michael.”

Interview with the Author
  • What’s your favorite genre to write? Favorite genre to read?
I like to write Romantic Suspense. I like to read suspense, romantic suspense, thrillers/mysteries, and contemporary romance
  • Is there something that draws you to this genre?
I love to read about the development of a relationship between characters. I can read any genre as long as there is an element of romance involved. Although I read traditional romance too, I prefer another underlying story (suspense/thriller) weaved within the book.
  • Print or E-book?
E-book just because I tend to read a lot more this way!
  • If you could give one piece of advice to aspiring writers, what would it be?
Don’t do it alone. Get help/feedback from others- and try not to let constructive criticism get to you. 
  • What novel have you recently released (or is up and coming)?
My novel, to be released 9/15- is a romantic suspense: Silenced Memories. The novel takes place, for the most part, in the heart of Charlotte, N.C. – Romance tangles with mystery as an ex-Marine, turned millionaire, steps in to save his stunning events planner from a stalker and her dangerous past—but readers will discover he deals with his own issues, which he has tried to ‘silence.’
  • When writing, do you have a target audience in mind?
I would say women over 18 (no age limit!). Although my book is both romance and suspense- the general assumption is that women are the target readers for romance.
  • Tell us about your protagonist.
Kate Adams is smart (Harvard MBA grad). She took over her stepmother’s event planning business at an early age & developed it into a multimillion dollar company by 27. She is headstrong, a bit stubborn–and always pulled together–until she returns to her place of birth (Charlotte) & meets the elusive Michael Maddox.
Michael Maddox is an ex-Marine (Special Forces). He retired from the Marines 5 years prior to meeting Kate. He became a successful and wealthy entrepreneur upon exit of the Marines, but he is heavily committed to helping veterans and launches a business initiative for veterans (which is how Michael and Kate meet- through planning an event for the business initiative).
  • What kind of research have you done for your story?
A lot of research on the military (with specific regards to the Special Forces division of the Marines). I try to make everything as authentic as possible. Whether I speak with the police, or do research with a designer (my female protag: an events planner) . . . I like to cover the details.
  • Any last shout outs or words of wisdom?

Follow your dreams because we only get one shot at life.

Blurb

What happens when the one you want is the only one you can't have?

My name is Sevin.

Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.

Elle was the girl who'd been carefully chosen for me.

After a long-distance courtship, I'd be moving into her family's guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.

Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.

I'd accepted those rules and my fate.

Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

That was when restraint became a problem...especially since THE ONE wasn't Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

You know what they say about best laid plans.

My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.

Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel.
Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language.
Only appropriate for adult readers
age 18+.

She watched him move across the room as he got their drinks and was mesmerized by how the man just seemed to relax into a steady rhythm. When he caught her staring at him, he gave her a famous Callaway smile before turning the tables on her. “You know, I don’t think I have ever met someone who turns me inside out just by looking at me. You, Jamie Caldwell, are sure making me think things I haven’t thought about in a long time.”



He walked toward her with their drinks in his hands. With the moonlight shining through the back door, she saw a glimmer of intensity in his eyes. It should have scared her or made her feel unbalanced, but her breath quickened in response to the way he looked at her. She took a minute to admire his body. His shoulders and chest were broad. And there was just something about the way he held himself that she found incredibly sexy.



“You keep staring at me like that and we are going to have a problem.” He’d moved closer to her. He stood inches away from her when she looked up at him and their eyes locked, sending electricity through her entire body.



“Well then, maybe we should find a solution to that problem.” She watched Cole set the glasses of whiskey on the corner table. He wrapped one hand around her waist and the other around her neck, then pulled her in close to him, near enough that she could feel his heartbeat and the heat rolling off his body.



“Are you sure about this?” She knew he needed to hear her say the words, not just for himself but for her, as well. This was a milestone moment for her, and she cherished the knowledge she’d found someone she trusted enough to let this part of her past go with him.



Jamie wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled his head to her. Their lips were almost touching, and when she whispered the words, “I have never been more sure of anything in my life,” he took what he desperately needed.






Kaithlin Shepherd was born and raised in Canada where she learned to figure skate and crafted a love affair with coffee. Growing up in a household filled by strong-headed women, she learned early on that life is what you make it. You’ve probably never met a bigger country music fan and in the words of Brooks and Dunn, she’s a die-hard ‘George Strait junkie.’ Constructing a world away from her real life, Kaithlin loves the feeling of creating a universe where her fans can forget about everything in their life. She loves writing about hot alphas and doesn’t shy away from turning up the heat with scorching hot sex scenes.

From Best Selling Author, Lexy Timms, comes a billionaire romance that'll make you
swoon and fall in love all over again.

Jamie Connors has given up on finding a man. Despite being smart, pretty, and just slightly overweight, she's a magnet for the kind of guys that don't stay round.

Her sister's wedding is at the foreground of the family's attention. Jamie would be find with it if her sister wasn't pressuring her to lose weight so she'll fit in the maid of honor dress, her mother would get off her case and her ex-boyfriend wasn't about to become her brother-in-law.

Determined to step out on her own, she accepts a PA position from billionaire Alex Reid. The job includes an apartment on his property and gets her out of living in her parent's basement.

Jamie has to balance her life and somehow figure out how to manage her billionaire boss, without falling in love with him.

** The Boss is book 1 in the Managing the Bosses series. All your questions won't be answered in the first book. It may end on a cliff hanger.

For mature audiences only. There are adult situations, but this is a love
story, NOT erotica. 













I'm a dreamer, a big romantic dreamer who pulled up her jeans and sat down to put the story I had in my head to paper. Thus SAVING FOREVER was born... and shortly after THE UNIVERSITY OF GATICA series. My Historical Romance series, HEART OF THE BATTLE SERIES has just released and I'm currently working on a Billionaire series that'll steal your heart - BOSSES.
