These days, it can be hard to know what to read. There are so many books out there, millions published every year, and discovering new favorites takes time and energy. Reader events, Goodreads, blogs, the best-seller lists–these are places I go to read long excerpt, reviews, and really get to know an author’s style and genre before I one-click myself through an entire series, or before I fill my bag with paperbacks (and the occasional hardcover!)
I was in a fantastic bookstore the other day in the Los Angeles-area called The Ripped Bodice. The store is dedicated to romance–so many genres, so many authors. Whether indie-pubbed or traditionally published, I loved exploring new authors and of course finding some of my favorites, like Helen Hardt.
And wouldn’t you know it… Helen’s latest release, Craving, Book 1 in the Steel Brothers Saga, hit the USA Today Best-seller list. Not surprising! Helen’s hot heroes and passionate heroines are… well, check just some of her reviews out:
Enjoy an exclusive excerpt from Craving here: Excerpt from Helen Hardt’s Craving, Book 1 Steel Brothers
After being left at the altar, Jade Roberts seeks solace at her best friend’s ranch on the Colorado western slope. Her humiliation still ripe, she doesn’t expect to be attracted to her friend’s reticent brother, but when the gorgeous cowboy kisses her, all bets are off.
Talon Steel is broken. Having never fully healed from a horrific childhood trauma, he simply exists, taking from women what is offered and giving nothing in return…until Jade Roberts catapults into his life. She is beautiful, sweet, and giving, and his desire for her becomes a craving he fears he’ll never be able to satisfy.
Passion sizzles between the two lovers…but long-buried secrets haunt them both and may eventually tear them apart.
