Q&A + Excerpt of NOBODY BUT YOU by Jill Shalvis

Nobody But You Jill Shalvis

We’ve got a gift basket’s worth of treats today on EverAfter! We’re thrilled to bring you a mini-Q&A with the lovely Jill Shalvis, a mouthwatering excerpt of her book, Nobody But You, releasing March 29th, 2016, and a giveaway for the Cedar Ridge series! Are you hyped?! We’re so hyped!


1. What’s the funniest “meet-cute” you’ve ever written?

Possibly Jacob and Sophie in Nobody But You.  After all, our poor seasick Sophie ends up throwing up practically ON Jacob.  Maybe not traditionally “cute” … or okay, not cute at all … but definitely memorable.

2. Do you have a favorite (or current) book boyfriend? If so, who and why?

My current boyfriends are movie boyfriends.  Chris Evans, Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth.  What can I say, I have a thing for the Chris’s.

3. Describe what readers can expect from a Jill Shalvis romance in 140 characters.

Hot guys, fun, sexy, humor, hot guys, love, girl power and as it can’t be said enough, more hot guys.

“Just so I have a baseline,” Vani asked, “what do you already know about parapsychology?”

I bit my thumbnail and considered whether to be honest or diplomatic.

“Go ahead,” Ben quietly urged. “What you really think, remember?

I shot him a “don’t push me” look. “Okay, well,” I began, “all I know is that in grad school, they said it was a pseudoscience that kind of died out in the Eighties. They also said that a lot of scam artists were involved, and it had ties to the occult. And I’ve seen that reality TV show Ghost Trappers; they mention parapsychology on there sometimes.”

“Not bad,” Vani said. “Ghost Trappers is the extent of many people’s exposure. Allow me to tell you what parapsychology really is.” She turned to the board and wrote the definition as she spoke it. “It’s the scientific study of psychological phenomena that cannot be explained by the known laws of nature.”

So it was an actual field of study? I sat up straighter in my chair. “You mean things like aura reading, and being an empath?”

“Exactly.” Vani pointed to the hand she’d drawn. “There are five categories of these phenomena. The first is psychokinesis, in which the mind interacts with other people or objects from a distance. There are several sub-categories—the most well-known being telekinesis—but the only one we use here is psychic healing, which encompasses empathic submergence and empath healing.”

“Empath healing is the technique I told you about earlier,” Ben added.

“Right, I remember,” I said, trying to look cool rather than incredulous. “But wait, telekinesis? Isn’t that moving things with your mind?”

“Yes, although the jury’s still out on whether that exists,” Vani said. “Personally, I’ve never seen any evidence of it.”

“That’s because it’s bogus,” Ben grumbled.

Kai tsk-tsked. “Well, aren’t we judgy this afternoon.”

Guest Post: “This is What Happens When a Book Writes Itself” by Alexia Adams

The Greek's Stowaway Bride Alexia Adams

Thank you to Ever After Romance for hosting me on their blog today. You see, I have a secret to share. I can’t actually remember writing The Greek’s Stowaway Bride. Okay, I have vague recollections of sitting at my kitchen table last summer tapping on the keyboard of my laptop. My sister-in-law was visiting from the UK so I only had mornings to write as we went touring in the afternoons. But somehow, at the end of that month of August I had a book to edit, polish and then send to my editor. And no, I didn’t spend the month in an alcohol-induced stupor, although SIL and I did manage to go through a bottle of Pims in pretty short order.

Exclusive Excerpt: Cassi Carver’s SLAYER’S KISS

517lTMxKP4L._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

The Five Past Midnight anthology from Samhain Publishing releases next week! Today we have Cassi Carver sharing an exclusive excerpt from her book, Slayer’s Kiss. We hope you enjoy and pre-order your copy of the anthology today!


When the past flies in your face, clip its wings.

Kara Reed is a supernatural failure. But where her magic falls short, her fists get the job done. The criminal element doesn’t stand a chance once she hits San Diego’s dark streets.

When two smoking-hot tenants move in next door, she thinks her love life might finally be heating up. Just being near Gavin and Julian is enough to make her want to offer her body on a platter.

Gavin and Julian know it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out. They’re fallen angels sent to watch over the king’s daughter, one of the last females of her kind. Trouble is, she doesn’t seem to think she needs watching—unless they’re watching her shimmy out of her clothes.

No matter how tempting her guardians, Kara’s not about to let anything stop her from tracking down a sadistic killer who carves into his victims and leaves them for dead. Even when she realizes her target may be the very scourge of heaven from which her angels swore to protect her…

Product Warnings
Contains a kick-ass heroine with a foul mouth, a kind heart and a raging libido, and two fallen angel warriors who wouldn’t have her any other way. Watch out for sex in the clouds, a magical island of hedonism and a love triangle that gives new meaning to the term “hot-wings”.


She kept her gaze trained on the door, even while mixing two martinis and a rum and Coke, otherwise she never would have glimpsed Gavin Cross appear on the other side of the glass, head bowed, talking through something serious with a striking man with shiny black hair and a body almost as massive as Gavin’s.

After a quick handshake, just a fleeting grasp of one wrist to another, Gavin broke away from the other man and came through the door. His gaze arrowed through the crush of bodies and landed squarely on Kara.

Her mouth went dry. Tha-thump. Tha-thump. Her heart throttled from zero to sixty in one glance, hammering as if she’d run a hundred miles through the desert.

HE’S TEMPTING FATE
Jazz Lancing is the stuff of legends. A mountain-bred ex-Navy SEAL with rugged dark looks, a tall muscled frame, and gorgeous blue eyes, he can have any woman he wants in the state of Tennessee. Except Annie Mayes. The beautiful, innocent teacher refuses to fall for Jazz because she’s hiding a secret more powerful than her own temptation …

SHE’S IN TOO DEEP
Jazz knows that Annie isn’t who she says she is-that she’s lying about her identity, her past, and her motives. But can she be trusted? Little does he know Annie has been craving his kiss for years, dreaming that Jazz would take her in his arms and save her from her demons. But telling Jazz the truth could put both of them in peril. In this deadly game of danger, deceit, and darkness, is desire worth the risk of losing…everything?
