Synopsis:

When reporter Stacia Howell follows a hot tip to Vegas, she doesn’t expect to end up running for her life—or to be scooped out of harm’s way by a towering mass of muscle with an icy attitude and a penetrating gaze.

Walker runs on two speeds: Intense and Highly Intense. His plane is emblazoned with the name of the mysterious organization she’s been investigating—Platinum. And a single touch makes her body buzz with the raw desire to lay herself bare before him.

Walker knows Stacia’s game. Hell, he invented the game. She’s oblivious to the danger she’s in. Yet she makes him want to leave his imprint on her skin, and wring sounds of passion from her lips. One night of warm leather and straining chains, and he realizes she is his and his alone. But when he’s backed to the edge of a cliff, the only way to keep her safe could be to let her go. Forever.

Blurb:

Years after fleeing small-town Springvale, Illinois, Deanna Chase has picked up the pieces of her shattered heart and built a new life for herself as a child advocacy lawyer. Her food addiction is quasi under control, her secrets are buried, and she has even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body. Until…

 

Micah Peters—the very sexy and now famous man she fled— walks through her office door and sends Dee reeling. His demand that she help a young boy caught in a custody battle will reunite her with the past she left behind.

 

Torn between duty and self-preservation, Dee isn’t easy to convince. But when obligation wins, the former lovers get more than they bargained for—a searing passion that burns hotter than ever and startling revelations about what really happened the fateful night she left.

 

Will the truth set Dee free to love again? Or will past hurts and lingering insecurities destine her to walk away from her heart again, this time for good?

 

FAT GIRL is the first book in this provocative two-part series about love and self-acceptance.

What people are saying about FAT GIRL:

5 stars – A brilliant romance novel with a difference by By Olivia P:

Carron portrays Dee’s insecurities absolutely faultlessly, from the little tugs she habitually gives to her clothing when nervous, to the full-fledged horrified panic at the thought of being seen naked in the daylight. When it comes to romance novels, we’re so used to the women being picture perfect, and any perceived imperfections being so minor as to be of little note, but here we have a real ‘everywoman’ figure. And it’s about damn time!

Dee’s uniqueness within the genre aside, the plot in Fat Girl is multi-layered and compelling, and driven forward with a skilled hand. In some respects it stands alone; Carron thankfully avoids the current tendency towards an infuriating, cliffhanger ending, although as it’s book one of two there’s plenty left to still be revealed, and I’m really looking forward to the next one.

A brilliantly written, steamy, sexy, thought-provokingly wonderful novel.

Goodreads Reader – 5 stars –Pamela:

Wonderful! I absolutely loved this novel. Loved all of the characters. Loved the back and forth between the present and the past and the 1st person point of view that knocked back and forth between the main male and female characters. Yes, there is suppose to be another book after this one as a continuation of the story line, but the ending is not a panic inducing cliff hanger. That’s all I will say about that.

An American living in Canada. Chocolate snob. Recovering yo-yo dieter. Devoted mother and wife, blessed with a wacky family. Most nights, you will find me either curled up with a great book or, more often, sitting at my computer, tapping out the countless visions in my head. To me, there’s nothing better in a narrative than perfectly flawed but strong characters and intense romance that is sexy, deep, and sensual. Mm…I liken such stories to a box of Godiva. Decadent and delicious! You can’t stop at just one. In fact, I’m now hard at work on my next novel—A Naked Beauty, the conclusion to Fat Girl.

Title: Curveball
Author:   V.K. Sykes
Series: Philadelphia Patriots #4
Format: eBook
Expected Publication: May 7, 2013
Publisher: Self Published
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Blurb:

Taylor Page never wanted anything but a career in major league baseball.  Through talent and guts, she’s finally landed a position as Assistant General Manager of the Philadelphia Patriots.  The only problem is that most men in baseball still don’t take a woman exec seriously, especially a thirty-year old blonde with no on-field experience.  She needs to do something big to convince her bosses she has what it takes to run a team.

Veteran Pittsburgh outfielder Ryan Locke’s career is in jeopardy when a suddenly unreliable throwing arm comes on top of rehab from a major injury.  A single parent with a troubled daughter and an alcoholic mother to provide for, retirement is out of the question. Ryan’s best hope is for a trade to an American League team as a designated hitter, allowing him several more years of play.

When Taylor needs a replacement for an injured first baseman, she comes up with an innovative but risky idea:  convince her boss to make a trade for Ryan Locke, and then convince the still talented slugger to play first base for the Patriots.  With Ryan dead-set against that plan and both their careers on the line, neither Taylor nor Ryan can afford the explosive physical attraction between them.  But despite Taylor’s best efforts to resist Ryan’s campaign of seduction, she’s not sure she’s got the willpower to keep from playing along.

About the Author:

Juliana

A Bit About Me

Hobbies & Interests

Music and words have always been my passions. I sing in a band in which my husband plays guitar and my son comes along for the ride as well. We’re total ’80s geeks, but sadly, the big hair, big shoulder pads, and neon colors are a thing of the past!



Writing Tips

I think that it’s important to take some time for yourself when you’re on deadline. If you spend all your time in the chair writing, it’s so easy to burn out. Because writing is such a lonely job, with so many hours spent by yourself, it’s important (for me) to get some social time in. So as a reward, I allow myself time to surf the Net, read blogs, Twitter, and Facebook to connect with all the writer friends that I have.
