Release Day Blitz for Bounty: Hunted Love #2 by Aden Lowe
Title: Bounty: Hunted Love #2
Author: Aden Lowe
Release Date: December 26th, 2014
Bounty hunter, Falon Harris is asked to go after outlaw biker Tom Kellen and tracks him to where he’s hiding out in Stags Leap, KY, laying low and waiting for the heat to pass. Rita James operates a busy tavern/grill and occasionally rents out the little camper trailer on her back lot. Figuring the tavern is the most logical place to watch for Kellen, Falon rents the trailer for a week. The first night, while he’s having dinner and watching everything, Kellen shows up and starts giving Rita a hard time. The bartender puts a stop to it, but Falon gets the idea it’s happened before. Knowing Kellen’s past, he knows the biker won’t take no for an answer for long.
* 18 years old and up due to sexual content*
Falon took advantage of the small gap between them to look. Silky pale skin covered her smooth musculature and feminine contours. Black lace accentuated the paleness of her breasts and acted as an artistic showcase for all that sheer perfection. The impulse to touch overcame him and he allowed his hands to rise and gently cup her flesh. She reacted with a sharp hiss and reached behind her back to unclasp her bra. The garment went slack in his hand, and he let it drop in favor of touching bare skin. Hardened nipples beckoned his mouth, and he obeyed instantly to flick his tongue across the tip of one and rolled the other between his finger and thumb. Rita’s moan accompanied her fingers cupping the back of his head, nails raking his scalp in a way that inflamed him even more. He pulled her nipple between his lips and sucked hard, drawing a gasp from her. A muffled bang from below made them both stiffen just as a buzzer sounded in Rita’s apartment. “Shit!” She pulled away and scrambled for her bra and shirt. “Trouble in the bar. That was the shotgun.”
Growing up an only child, I was lucky enough to have a huge brood of cousins to help me get into all sorts of trouble. Long summers spent on various family members’ farms gave me a deep appreciation for the outdoors and horses. I worked my way through college training horses as a result of those summers.
After 15 years editing books for strangers, I decided to try my own hand at writing. Big Game: Hunted Love #1 was my solo debut, and my story idea file is endless. After I finish the Hunted Love series, I have a romance series featuring soldiers returning from war and set twenty years in the future. And after that, there’s a Roman Gladiator who keeps insisting on telling me his story…
Exclusive Interview with Aden
This interview was done by Aden’s PA, Ashley. The questions were complied from fans of Aden’s.
Ashley: What was one of your biggest regrets?
Aden: Not spending more time with my dad when he was sick. I missed a lot.
Ashley: What is your favorite color?
Aden: I don’t really have one, I like grays and blues mostly.
Ashley: Did you ever imagine being an author?
Aden: Not really, I was satisfied with the editing work and just writing for my own amusement. An old friend suggested I should publish something and I finally went ahead with it, and there was no going back once I did.
Ashley: What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?
Aden: #1 Elyse, by becoming my wife, and #2 Ash, you, agreeing to work with me and becoming my friend.
Ashley: What inspires you in life?
Aden: Life I guess, lol. I look around at all the miraculous things and how could I not be inspired.
Ashley: There has been some rumors that you aren’t a male and could even be gay, can you clear that rumor up for us?
Aden: Ummm, last time I went to the bathroom, yep, definitely male. All still there. You wouldn’t even imagine the gay part if you knew me, lol. No, totally straight.
Ashley: What’s your favorite food?
Aden: Depends, but Chinese takeout is one of my favorites, and I love Italian and Mexican, oh and peanut butter snickers.
Ashley: How do you write? Outline or freehand?
Aden: I outline but sometimes the story strays and I have to adjust.
Ashley: Is there a book out there that you’ve read that you wished ended differently? If so, what is it is and by who?
Aden: I don’t think so, none that I can think of at the moment.
Ashley: If you could have dinner with an author, dead or alive … who would it be?
Aden: Got a while for my list? Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Brad Meltzer, Zane Grey, Louis L’Amour, and on and on and on, lol. I’m absolutely fascinated by the ways different authors have found success and wonder about their failures.
Ashley: If you weren’t an author what would be your next dream job?
Aden: To own and operate a horse ranch, no question.

THE COLLECTORS’ SOCIETY by Heather Lyons is an Adult Romantic Fairy Tale, full of adventure and fantasy. This is Alice as you have never seen her before…
Amazon ** Barnes & Noble ** Kobo ** iTunes
THE COLLECTORS’ SOCIETY Synopsis:
From the author of the Fate series and The Deep End of the Sea comes a fantastical romantic adventure that has Alice tumbling down the strangest rabbit hole yet.
After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.
It’s there she discovers villains are afoot—ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?
An Interview With Heather Lyons
Congratulations on the release of The Collectors’ Society!
Your new book is a different take on Alice in Wonderland. What part of the original story intrigues you the most?
I think I’ve always been attracted to Alice’s attempts at explaining the unexplainable, and of how she questions her own existence during the journey.
What was the most fun part of writing a story like this?
Honestly, it’s going to sound weird—but the research. Rediscovering beloved literary friends and books.
What does your typical day of writing look like?
I’m ashamed to admit it, but I typically sit down and check Facebook, then Twitter, then my favorite websites, and then I’ll ease into research and then writing. Oddly, this helps focus me. It doesn’t seem like it should, but it does. Because I’m a stay-at-home mom, I don’t get huge chunks of time to play with, so those days where I pull fourteen to sixteen hour writing jags basically have me eating in front of my laptop and wearing yoga pants and comfy shirts, and emerging looking like a zombie.
Actually, I get a lot of my book ideas from dreams I have. I’m usually pretty good at remembering what I dream.
Is there an author who inspires you? Or anyone who inspires you?
There are some authors whose writings styles I very much admire: Jane Austen, Alexander McCall Smith, Kristin Cashore, Stephanie Perkins to name a few . . .
Out of all the books you’ve written, is there any character you’ve felt the most connected to?
While I think there are parts I can connect with within all of my characters, I’m going to have to go with Chloe Lilywhite from my Fate series.
If there was one place in the world you could travel to that you haven’t been to, where would it be and why?
Paris. I’ve yet to be there and I’ve always wanted to go. I’ll need to lose at least ten pounds before I do, so I can just eat what I like there. Haha! But man oh man, do I love me some good French cuisine.
We have heard you may have a minor obsession with cupcakes and handbags so……………… If you were told you could only have cupcakes for the rest of your life and use only one handbag OR have as many handbags as you want for life and only have one cupcake a year, which would you choose?
Oh, this is a diabolical question that is SO unfair. I would probably pick cupcakes, only because I have about 30-40 handbags already. That sounds excessive, doesn’t it? Oh my goodness.
What question have you never been asked that you wish you have?
Um . . . honestly, I have no idea. Something silly, maybe, like: What is your favorite handbag? (For what it’s worth, it’d be a beaded Hawaiian Hula Girl Isabella Fiore bag I have—SO CUTE.)

“Do you find my ability to converse lacking, Doctor?”
He chuckles softly, no doubt remembering how I wasn’t chatty with anyone, himself included, for the first month of my stay. To be fair, it is difficult to carry on an invigorating discussion when one is shaking so hard from withdrawals they fear they might shatter into thousands of painful pieces before a single word can be uttered. Plus, there was the whole bit of how once I did open up, I raved liked a lunatic about things no normal person could imagine being true.
“Certainly not,” he says to me. “But as I must stay at the Pleasance and you must go forth into the world, it will do you good to practice on somebody new.”
“Then send in one of the orderlies. Or one of the nurses. I’ll happily chat with a staff member.”
One of his bushy, out-of-control eyebrows lifts high into his forehead.
“There are people out there who are quite content being solitary,” I point out. “Who do not need to converse with anybody but themselves and their dogs.”
He sets his pen down. “What about cats?”
Rigor mortis sets in ever so briefly at this question.
“You father said you were quite fond of cats growing up. There was one in particular that you favored. Dinah, was it not?”
“I’m—” I have to clear my throat. “Lately, I wonder if perhaps I’m more of a dog person after all.”
Heather Lyons has always had a thing for words—She’s been writing stories since she was a kid. In addition to writing, she’s also been an archaeologist and a teacher. Heather is a rabid music fan, as evidenced by her (mostly) music-centric blog, and she’s married to an even larger music snob. They’re happily raising three kids who are mini music fiends who love to read and be read to.
