Karen Marie Moning just likes to tease us! She has released the first 27 pages of Iced for us, ahead of the October 30 release date, and I’m so excited for this book! W00t!


Teaser: Iced, by Karen Marie Moning

23 Jun

You all know how much of a fan of Jericho Barrons I am – *swoon* – so I was super-excited to see Karen Marie Moning had posted a wee teaser for her upcoming continuation of the Fever series, Iced, on her Facebook page yesterday. Iced is going to be the first in a trilogy based on Dani and featuring Christian MacKeltar and the mysterious Ryodan – and I hope JZB makes lots of appearances!

Here’t the teaser:

Ryodan doesn’t like Mac. He never has. She got between him and his best boy-bud. I give him a look. “I’ll tell you a secret, Ryodan. You mess with her, Barrons’ll kill you.” I drag a finger across my neck. “Just like that. You aren’t all that. Barrons’ll stomp your ass, hand’s down.”

He smiles faintly. “I’ll be damned. You have a crush on Barrons.”

“I do not have a crush—”

“You do, too. It’s all over your face. Anybody could see it.”

“Sometimes, boss, you’re just wrong.”

“I’m never wrong. You might as well take out a billboard. ‘Dani O’Malley thinks Jericho Barrons is hot.’ My offer to teach you is still open. Save you from future embarrassment. If I can see it on your face, he can, too.”

“He never figured it out before,” I grumble then realize I just admitted it. Ryodan has a tricky way of wording things that makes you say things you didn’t mean to say. “Maybe I’ll ask Barrons to teach me,” I mutter and turn away from the stairs, heading for his office. I run smack into his chest. “Dude, move. Trying to get somewhere here.”

“No one but me is ever going to teach you, Dani.”

He touches me before I see it coming, has his hand under my chin, turning my face up. My shiver is instant and uncontrollable.

“That’s non-negotiable. You signed a contract with me that grants exclusivity. You won’t like it if you try to break it.”

Ooh, me likey 🙂 Iced is expected to be published on October 30.

18 & Over Book Blogger Follow #3

10 Mar

18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that runs over the weekend, hosted by Crystal from one of my favourite blog sites, Reading Between the Wines.

Question of the Week: If you could ask your favorite author one question, what would you ask?  And don’t forget to include the author in your answer.

Ooh, another tough one! After much deliberation – and rejecting J.R. Ward because I would want to ask her too many questions – I decided on Karen Marie Moning, author of the amazing Fever series.

I love Barrons – who doesn’t? – and have always been intrigued by his relationship with Ryodan. Mac is okaaay, and their HEA was inevitable, but in all honesty I read the series for the men. Well, for Barrons. *sigh*

So anyway, I would ask Ms Moning if she would ever consider writing Barrons’ and Ryodan’s backstory. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would be interested in finding out how the two of them met, what adventures they have had, and finding out what Ryodan is. Is he the same as Barrons?

If I could ask another question, I’d like to ask: “Why Tubthumping?” I mean, really? Chumbawamba just make me laugh so hard now, thinking of Barrons dancing au naturel.

OK, that’s me. What about you? Who and what would you ask? Leave a comment below or link up HERE to follow the meme.
