Come Visit Aspenridge, Colorado....

Hey, all!
It's K with you here today. B and I were discussing what we should share with you this week as we lead up to our first release, Deliciously Smooth

It only makes sense that we introduce  our little make-believe town, Aspenridge Colorado, because ALL of our books will be set here for the foreseeable future, not just this original trilogy. 

(We have lots and lots of books already planned.)


Aspenridge Colorado is an old mining town set in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. It was founded in the 1850's when gold was discovered in the Aspen River

Set at 9750 feet elevation, it's a year-round outdoor playground with an average high temperature of 70* in the summer and an average low temperature of 0* in the winter.

Summer brings hiking, camping in the forest as well as kayaking down the river. Aspen Lake features an old-fashioned vibe with its historical grandstand (where bands will play on summer nights), classic playground equipment like seesaws and merry-go-rounds as well as paddle boats for rent on the lake.

In the winter, all the activity centers around The Edge the base for the Ski Aspenridge Mountain, which is the home for several world-class ski and snowboarding competitions. The Edge also has a high-ropes course, one of the worlds largest slides, and outdoor putt-putt in the summer.


But Aspenridge isn't all about play. Featuring a four-year liberal arts college, the town is a destination for a few thousand young minds who attend Goldmont College every year.

Many of those students like to visit Em-Dash, the local bookstore. The store's book club is particularly notable because it coincidentally occurs at the same time that the fire station across the street has scheduled to wash their fire trucks every week. 

No, really...it's totally coincidental. You know, just because the firefighters in Aspenridge are cut like Greek Gods has nothing to do with it. Really. No, seriously...

It's all innocent. In Aspenridge, we protect all our young minds. They don't need the distractions that come from carnal lust like that (ahem...even if it does provide some excellent creative fodder for a certain New Adult romance author duo). 



There are many other eclectic and fun businesses to visit in Aspenridge. I won't bore you with a listing of all of them, but be assured the town will provide us with YEARS of excellent stories to come. We already have the next several series plotted out, so we hope you love our little mountain town as much as we do. 

The heroes are sexy, the heroines feisty, and we hope their stories promise keep you up long past your bedtime.


But the best place to start learning about this incredible small town is in Deliciously Smooth, the first book in the Naked Brews series.

*gasp* 

Wait a minute...I forgot to tell you about the most important business to know about right now...Naked Brews
Naked Brews is a craft brewery located in Aspenridge, Colorado. It was started twenty years ago by Pat O'Brien. What began as a hobby in Pat's garage turned into a hometown success story with the brewery and pub now run by his daughter, Lake O'Brien.

Well...kind of a success story. Everyone agrees...they do make excellent beer. It's just that Lake never planned on taking over the company this early. The sudden death of her father has made it so things are a little rocky around the Naked Brews...but that's a tale for the series. 

You know you want to hear more, right?

Well, Deliciously Smooth will be out in FIVE DAYS!!

Description:
My parents were conmen and I was their tool. I learned how to cheat, connive, and charm my way out of any circumstance. But now I’m respectable...kind of. Yeah, my life is still a lie, but that’s because I have no choice. My best friend, who’s also my boss, needs me to lie to keep our billion-dollar charity going. It’s complicated. 

But all the lies are about to end. I just have to finish one final task...taking over a brewery. Easy, right?

Not so much. Because that brewery is part of a custody battle between mother and daughter. The mother owns it. The daughter thinks it should be hers. I’m caught in the middle. Not normally a bad place to be when it comes to two feisty women.

But I’m falling for the daughter and when my lies come to light, everything is going to unravel. And then my future with the brewery and the girl will be shot to hell. 

My boss probably won’t be too happy with me either...

Meet Lake & Walsh...

Hi, all! K here with you today. I can't believe we're already at this point...Deliciously Smooth releases in just another week and a half. *eep* I can't wait for you all to get to read it. I personally think it's kind of awesome...but you know, I may be a slightly bit biased about it.

But while we're waiting, I thought it might be fun to introduce you to our hero and heroine...



 Name: Walsh Brackens AKA Walsh Davidson AKA Damian "Walsh" Thorne
Age: 26
Physical Traits: 5'11"; strawberry blond hair; green eyes
Job: rep for Ghost Squad Charities; former Army Lt; former conman
Most Likely to: End up in jail
Hobbies: plays guitar to steady himself
Affiliation: bff to the "real" Damian Thorne
Car: Yellow 2017 Corvette Stingray Z07
Skills: Smooth moves and charm

Biography:
After questionable beginnings in life, Walsh found his place in the Army. But after a roadside bomb killed four of his best friends, it's now Damian and him against the world. With Damian reluctant to leave his house, that leaves Walsh living both their lives...not a simple task, but one that brings him to Aspenridge, Colorado...and Lake.



Name: Lake O'Brien
Age: 24
Physical Traits: 5'4"; curvy; bleach blond short hair; icy blue eyes
Job: owner of Naked Brews (inherited from her recently deceased father...she'd much rather be brewing)
Most Likely to: bring a keg or 6-pack
Hobbies: flinging her body off mountain cliffs (i.e. rock climbing)
Affiliation: bff to Melissa and Alex (the three met in college)
Car: 1974 Ford Bronco that she rebuilt with her dad
Skills: mad sarcasm skills and the sense for unusual beer brewing blends

Biography:
Lake was happy with brewing beers and playing in the backroom of Naked Brews...until the day her father died unexpectedly. Now, she's trying to keep the front office afloat and desperately out of her element. Thank fuck for best friends willing to come and lend a hand.

*****
When these two meet, it's pretty much hate at first sight...well, maybe not at first sight. No, at first sight, Lake wants to jump his bones, but then Walsh opens his mouth. 

Walsh wants to steal her brewery and that kind of ruins the attraction...well, at least that's what she's saying.

Let's just mention that there may be a bit of conflict between the two of them. 

But you and I know that can make things...um...very explosive. If you know what I mean... 
(You're romance readers, so we all know you do.)

Releasing March 3rd....

We are right around three weeks until the release of Deliciously Smooth! Woohoo! All the confetti!

Here's what readers are already saying:

"Oh, my. Naked Brews is the type of brewery I wouldn't mind pulling up a bar stool at."

"A few big secrets, some lies, lots of beer and hot sex, along with a crazy ending had me eagerly flipping pages!"

"I can't believe that just happened. o.O #EvilAuthors"

If right now you're wondering how those happy readers got their hands on a copy of a book that hasn't been released yet, you're in the right place.

Excerpt:

"Look, whatever your name is—"
"Walsh."
"Fine. Walsh. As you can see, it's lunch hour around here, and I'm a little busy. If you want to take a seat and wait, you're welcome to it, but I have a brewery to run."
I stepped to the side to get around him, but he cut me off, his broad chest nearly knocking me over. This guy didn’t know when to quit.
He flashed me another wide smile that probably worked on most girls. "I understand you’re busy, and I am pleasantly surprised to see this much business in here. But I’m only in town for the day, and since this is about to be my brewery you're running, I'm sure you can find a minute for me."
Shock and fear shot down my body, colder than the heap of snow Walsh received from the slanted metal roof when he came in. "Naked Brews is my brewery."
Walsh the douche dropped his charming smile and rolled his eyes. He dug around in his briefcase and pulled out a leather portfolio waving it in my face. "According to the paperwork I have here, Naked Brews belongs to your mother, Emily Ryan, and when the ink is dry, it will belong to Ghost Squad Charities."
I balled my fist up at my side and jutted my chin up at his smirking face. "Emily Ryan isn't my mother, and Naked Brews will never belong to anyone but me, so you can march your arrogant ass right back out the snowy door you came in."
"Is everything okay?"
I spun around and found Alex standing in the doorway to the office, her arms crossed over her chest. Melissa stood behind her.
"Everything's fine." I jerked a thumb over my shoulder. "Mr. Fancy Pants thinks he can buy the brewery from the Motherload, and I'm simply informing him that will happen over my cold, dead body." I turned slowly back to face him to make sure he could see just how serious I was.
"Look, I couldn’t care less about your mommy issues. I have a signed letter here from Ms. Ryan, giving me permission to look around the facility and investigate operations."
Damn her. Damn Emily Ryan. Damn Walsh/Damian Thorne.
