ANNABELLE’S TOP 3 MEMORABLE SCARY MOVIES

I have to say, these days I’m a bit of a wuss and avoid scary movies wherever possible! But when I was younger and a little more daring, I watched my fair share, and these are three that stuck with me for one reason or another:

  1. Event Horizon
    Wow, this film gave me nightmares. We went to see the midnight showing, and I’d never been so scared walking back to my car before. Everything about that film creeped me out.
  2. Poltergeist
    The one scene that will be forever stuck in my head from this movie, is the face peeling scene. At the time, it was the grossest thing I’d ever watched. It still makes me cringe now when I think about it. It’s probably just as well I was too young at the time to go see it at the cinema.
  3. Silence of the Lambs
    I love Anthony Hopkins. I love this film, because I’m more a fan of suspense than gore. Although it has it’s moments. I saw this at the cinema, and the bit at the end where’s she’s in the dark had me watching from behind my fingers. I always wonder if it would’ve been creepy to watch a screening of this with Anthony Hopkins sat behind you.

Out of all the scary movies I’ve watched, these three still make me shudder, and I’m not sure I’d watch them now. Definitely not the first two anyway!

** NEW RELEASE ** Bitten By The Alpha

Bitten By The Alpha is book #4 in my Regent’s Park Pack series, and features pack alpha Cameron Harley and his beta Gareth Stone.

Gareth’s heart is set on Cam, but Cam’s heart broke a long time ago. 

BittenbytheAlpha-fAs alpha of the Regent’s Park Pack, Cam’s focus is always centred on its members—his personal life pushed aside after the death of his wife. Now that his pack has merged with the Primrose Hill shifters, he can’t afford any distractions.

Gareth’s been in love with his alpha for years, but his position as beta complicates matters. Added to the fact Cam still mourns his late wife, Gareth knows his feelings will never be reciprocated, so he buries them deep.

With the two packs already struggling to unite under one alpha, they get a surprise addition—one who causes more tension within the ranks. Under such strain, long-kept secrets are forced into the open. Gareth and Cam must deal with the aftermath, while also keeping the pack’s best interests at heart.

Autism Awareness Month 2017

aaFB

“Autism impacts the normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction, communication skills, and cognitive function. Individuals with autism typically have difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities.”

April is Autism Awareness month, and I’m lucky enough to be part of RJ Scott’s blog hop.

This year’s theme is animals.

Though I love most animals, (snakes will forever make me shudder, I’m afraid) my favourites are probably cats. I have three, and they are stubborn, spoilt, stuck up, and also awesome. Despite causing mass destruction in the kitchen at times, they never fail to cheer me or the kids up when we’re feeling down about something.

image1

While panicking about what to write for this blog post, the lovely Rachel Maybury pointed out several articles that describe how cats have had a positive impact on an autistic child’s life. I’d like to share this one from the Autism Speaks website.

As a thank you for checking out my blog today, I’m offering a giveaway of any ebook from my backlist, which you can find here.  Just leave me a comment to enter. Winner to be drawn on May 1st.

Regent’s Park Pack series #2 – Bitten By Design

Bitten By Design, the second book in my shifter series is out today.

In the Regent’s Park Pack verse, biting humans is against the law, unless permission is sought and granted beforehand. Book #1, Bitten By Mistake, tells the story of what happens when in the middle of a fight, wolf shifter Nathan Kohl encounters human Jared Taylor.
BittenbyMistake-fFrom animosity to searing passion in a lunar cycle… but can their bond survive?

Wolf shifter Nathan Kohl’s pack is his whole life. Arrogant and handsome, he avoids commitment to anything or anyone outside of his pack. He works hard, plays hard, and pursues humans as lovers because there’s little to no chance of him forming a permanent bond. However, when Jared Taylor comes into Nathan’s life, every rule is broken.

After a bad experience, Jared vowed to never get involved with another shifter, no matter how much they got under his skin. Despite being physically attracted to Nathan, who’s all kinds of hot, Jared only sees an arrogant, domineering bastard.

A disastrous case of mistaken identity throws Nathan and Jared together until the next full moon. Forced to spend the next twenty-eight days in close proximity, they can no longer ignore the powerful attraction between them. Passion ignites, and their relationship takes a turn neither of them wanted.

But when the full moon comes, everything might change again.

Bitten By Design  follows on form the first book, with two of the secondary characters introduced in Book #1– Tim Walters, the pack doctor, and Sebastian Calloway, Jared’s best friend.

BittenbyDesign-fWhen the last thing you want, is everything you need….

Seb Calloway isn’t interested in shifters. After his best friend bonded with one, he avoids getting involved with them—no matter how hot they are—to prevent the same thing from happening to him. Why take the risk for a few hours of fun?

Tim Walters is the pack doctor. Considered to be mild-mannered and non-threatening by pack standards, he prides himself on being able to stay calm and maintain his control at all times. Desperate for a bond of his own, he knows his interest in Seb is an exercise in futility, but he can’t seem to help himself.

When news emerges that threatens Seb’s safety, he and Tim need to fake a relationship to keep Seb safe. Despite Seb’s refusal to be anything other than friends with benefits, what starts out as pretend, quickly becomes more—for Tim at least. If Tim doesn’t want to end up heartbroken, he needs to prove to Seb that loving a shifter doesn’t mean losing himself.

Always Another Side – Release Day & Giveaway

My new contemporary romance, Always Another Side,  is out today exclusively on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

As part of my book tour I’m offering a $15 Amazon or ARe Giftcare, & Backlist Ebook. Visit Signal Boost Promotions for details.

AlwaysAnotherSide-fStarting over at forty is hard work for landscape architect Jack Bowman. His long-term partner hurt him badly. With his self-esteem dented by the break up, trusting a new lover is going to take time.

Tyler Freeman is equally unlucky when it comes to love. Now that he’s over thirty-five, he’s tired of getting played. All he wants is someone special. How hard can it be to meet a man who’s honest, with no hidden surprises?

Being set up on a blind date might be a classic cliché, but it’s a stroke of good luck for Jack and Tyler. They have a lot in common, including previous relationships steeped in deceit, but it’s worth navigating their trust issues if it means laying those ghosts to rest.

Making it work finally seems possible—until an accidental discovery threatens their newfound happiness.

Always Another Side is entirely relationship focused. There’s no drama and no major conflict, but I wasn’t bored for a second. The story is well paced and quietly romantic with enough steam to keep it interesting.” – Dani, My Fiction Nook

New Release – Chasing Shadows

My latest book, Chasing Shadows, is out today.

ChasingShadows_AJacobsJamie Matthews goes to Cornwall to find his missing brother. The police are convinced Michael drowned, but Jamie knows better. No way would Michael swim to his death, especially on a beach with a wicked rip tide. Finding a stranger in his brother’s cottage only deepens his misgivings.

Felix Bergstrom is recently discharged from the British Army. Unable to put the past behind him, he takes an unhealthy interest in old acquaintance and millionaire businessman Karl Weston, hoping to catch him up to no good. Michael’s disappearance adds fuel to Felix’s suspicions. Weston’s clifftop home overlooks the beach where Michael supposedly walked into the sea, but Weston has an alibi for that day.

When Jamie and Felix meet., the physical attraction is instant. Mistrust keeps them from acting on it until finally all their secrets are laid bare. But time isn’t on their side. Before they’re able to work out whether they have a future, danger catches up with them and threatens to put an end to everything.

I’m doing a bookblast tour with Pride Promotions and offering a $10 Amazon gift card and an ebook from my backlist. Click here to enter.
