Guest Author & Giveaway Featuring Parker Kincade


Please help me welcome author Parker Kincade here today as part of her book tour celebrating the release of her latest erotic romance title One Night Stand!

Welcome Parker and it looks like you have brought some friends over with you. Welcome Joe and Amanda! It's great to have you all here today!

Good morning everyone! I’m excited to be here today to share a little about my new release, One Night Stand with all of you. I’ve invited some help, so allow me to introduce you to the couple behind the one-night stand, Joe Sterling and Amanda Martin.

Joe: Hey.
Amanda: (waves) Hi, everyone! Thanks for stopping by to chat with us today!
Parker: I thought it would be fun to let you two ask each other a few questions so the readers can get to know you a little better. So, take it away guys, and let’s try to maintain some self-control, shall we?
Joe: I know you don’t mean me, Parker.
Amanda: Are you saying I don’t have any self-control?
Joe: (Grinning from ear to ear) You didn’t have any control last-OW.
Amanda: (punches Joe in the arm) If you expect a repeat…ever…then I’d watch it buster.
Joe: Oh, baby, I love it when you go all badass on me.
Parker: I can see this won’t stay on track if I stay silent.
Joe: As if that ever-
Parker: HEY!
Amanda: Okay, okay. Joe, sweetie, Parker wants us to ask each other a few questions so I’ll go first. What did you think the first time you saw me?
Joe: Nice ass.
Amanda: Seriously?
Joe: Seriously. (Shrugs) You had your back to me, what’d you expect? My second thought was, damn, I hope I’m never on the business end of that right hook. My turn. Wanna get naked?
Amanda: Right now?
Parker: Is it too early for a drink?
Joe: Right now.
Parker: Down boy, writer in the room! The faster we finish this, the faster I can get out of here and you can, well, you know, do what you do.
Joe: Fine. Mandy, were you flirting with my brother before I walked in the night we met?
Amanda: (crawls into Joe’s lap, kissing him loudly on the cheek) Of course not! But, speaking of brothers…mine want to come for dinner Sunday night, okay?
Joe: Be still. And your brothers just invited themselves to dinner?
Amanda: Well…I may have mentioned it would be nice if we started a family dinner night.
Joe:  Hold up. You don’t just mean this Sunday, do you? (narrows eyes) Every Sunday, Mandy? Really? And please, for the love of all things holy…sit still!
Amanda: (giggles, pats him on the cheek) It’ll be okay, baby. I promise. My brothers love you.
Joe: Uh huh. Right.
Parker: Is there a question coming any time soon?
Amanda: It’s my turn. So…Joe…wanna get naked?
Joe: (Stands, taking Amanda with him) Interview over. Later, Parker. Thanks for stopping by. You can let yourself out, right?

Back of the Book:

Amanda Martin has the worst taste in men. After being cheated on not once, but twice, she’s lost all faith in men…and in herself. Determined to regain her confidence, Amanda decides to have a one-night stand. No relationship, no promises, no threat of being hurt again…just sex. What she doesn’t anticipate is meeting a handsome-as-sin stranger who will give her pleasure unlike any she’s ever known.   
Joe Sterling has spent his life avoiding relationships, his former job as a military sniper not allowing for such commitments. Now he’s come home to Texas, to let go of the past and to prove he is more than the killer he’s been trained to be.
When Amanda’s life is threatened, Joe’s killer instinct is tested while Amanda struggles to protect her heart.

Joe couldn’t believe his ears. Did Amanda just ask him if he wanted to leave with her? Before he could recover his shock, she was hightailing it out the door. From the moment he’d walked into the bar tonight, he’d been captivated. First by the way she defended herself, next by the vulnerability he felt as he’d held her hand, and then by the way she looked at him as if he were a treat she’d like to eat.
Now he was just plain curious. He’d had women come on to him before. What surprised him was his desire to follow through with this one.
“Hold up, sweetheart.” He snatched her money off the bar. “Jake’s gonna cover your tab tonight, aren’t ya, Jake?” Joe looked at his brother expectantly.
Jake shrugged. “Sure, no problem.”
“Give me one minute.” Joe walked behind the bar and grabbed a full bottle of whiskey. “Don’t leave,” he added as he caught her looking between him and the door.
Jake wagged his eyebrows. “Someone’s finally gonna get laid,” he taunted.
Joe smacked him on the back of the head as he walked by. “Just for that, dickhead, you can pay for this bottle too.” He tried to sound irritated, but he just couldn’t keep the smile from his voice.
It had been a long time since a woman had caught his interest and it felt nice. He’d spent his life avoiding commitments. His former job with the military wasn’t really conducive to the white picket fence kind of lifestyle. He’d been alone most of his life, refusing to get attached to anyone or anything. But this woman…
Damn, she looked good. She dug her hands deep into the pockets of her low-riding jeans as she tapped the sexiest pair of cowgirl boots he’d ever seen against the concrete floor. Her blonde curls tumbled downward, teasing the lower part of her back where her T-shirt had ridden up. Imagining the feel of all that temptingly tanned skin under his tongue made his mouth water. He swore he could already taste her. He grunted as his cock swelled at the thought of licking every inch of her.
He was suddenly very glad he’d stopped in tonight.
Joe held the bottle up as he approached her. “Whiskey okay?”
Her vibrant green eyes latched on to his. “Sure.”
Smiling, he just barely resisted the urge to lean in and kiss her. Instead he trailed his fingers across the exposed skin on her back, resting his palm in the sexy little bend above her belt. The feel of her warm skin had his already engorged erection pressing painfully against his zipper. “Ready?”
“Sure,” she said again.
“Things are gonna go very well for us tonight, Mandy, if you stay so agreeable,” he teased with a wink. He chuckled at her sharp intake of breath as he guided her out the door.
The cool air hit them as they walked outside. Amanda was quiet beside him as he led her across the gravel to the only car left in the parking lot that didn’t belong to Jake. Joe had ridden in on his Harley and there was no way he was putting her on the back of his bike without the proper gear.
He glanced at her apologetically. “While I’d love to take you for a ride on my bike, tonight isn’t that night. Only one helmet,” he said at her puzzled frown. “I can follow you or…” He waited to see if she’d jump in, hoped she’d jump in. Anything to get her talking. “Mandy?”
She shook her head slightly. “No, no. It’s chilly out. Why don’t you ride with me?”
“You okay to drive?” He looked at her with mock sternness and gently raised her abused knuckles to his lips. That earned him a sweet smile.
“I’m sure I can manage.”
Joe sighed and let her hand drop. Maybe she was having second thoughts. He wasn’t sure what had caused her to close off all of a sudden, but one thing was for sure—he was going to play this out. He suddenly wanted to break down her walls and see what was there. He wanted to hear her laugh. He wanted her to cry out his name in pleasure.
He wanted her naked.
Oh yeah, he was going to play this out. “Lead the way, Mandy. I’m all yours.”
