Tempting Gray (After) Release Day Debacle!!

AHHHHHHH! It’s here! Kind of. For some.

Thursday was the official release day of TEMPTING GRAY a book I’ve been needing to write ever since Grayson Blackmoore strolled on to stage in Take Me. I nearly swooned. He was and is a compelling mixture of somber, stalwart, and erotic. Did I mention vampire as well? Absolutely wickedly delicious! 🙂 If you want to begin with the first book in the series, then you can get it right now for only $.99! This is only for the month of November so don’t wait too long.

Tempting Gray The Untouchables #2 by T. A. Grey

Bask in those glorious abs…

It all began nearly 600 years ago…

A dangerous vampire, mated to a woman his heart no longer beats for.

A mistake that would change his entire life.

A mistake so horrific it would lead Grayson Blackmoore back to one woman.

A woman who holds the power to shatter him completely—Arabella Donahue.

Vengeance, bloodshed. The hunt is on and Grayson won’t stop until they’re all dead.

~ Tempting Gray Release Day Debacle on Amazon ~

If you’ve seen my Facebook lately, or pre-ordered Tempting Gray from Amazon, then you’ve surely tasted the AWFUL MESS that was the release day of TG at Amazon. Something happened, some kind of glitchy mess, which sent out only a few pages of the book instead of the whole book. Much of November 21st was spent with Amazon taking the book off sale and fixing the problem and me trying not to freak out. Since then, if you purchased the book, you should have received an email with an updated link from Amazon. Check your spam or junk folders, too! This updated link will give you the correct copy. Also, if you’re still having trouble getting the book (this has been an on-going problem for some) here’s what you can do:

1) *Contact customer support (it’s faster by phone) and ask them to resend the book to your Kindle (this has worked for everyone).
2) Try deleting the book from your e-reader then re-sending it from your Kindle Cloud Management.
3) Refund the book and repurchase it.
4) Refresh and re-snyc your Kindle, then check the book again.

*1: Everyone who said they called and had Amazon resend the book said it worked every time. I would highly recommend this since some people said the refund/purchase method did not work. I only had to refresh the book from my Kindle and it worked–but fewer people are citing that this method works.

Amazon phone numbers:
1-866-321-8851 (US) or 1-206-266-0927 (International)
I am so very sorry for all of this mess. It’s been awful and the complete opposite of what any author could want for a release day. Thank you so much to all of you for being patient and understanding through this disaster. I can’t tell you how much that means to me! It means the world. There, I said it. My fans have truly showed just how respectful and amazing they are this week. You made this ordeal so much more tolerable. Thank you for that from the bottom of my heart! ❤
Thank you all!

SHE MAKES HIS BLOOD BURN
Dominic Blackmoore meets the woman who captures his mind and body with a look and he’s instantly taken with her. When he was ordered to take another mate quickly after separating from his ex, he loathed the idea. However, after catching sight of his bruid he quickly changes his mind. He finds her utterly captivating, sensually erotic, and yearns to learn everything about her. 

BUT SHE’S NOT HIS BRUID
The woman he’s mistaken as his bruid is none other than the event planner, Felicity Shaw, for his mating ceremony. Now Dominic will do everything it takes, even lie to the woman he craves, to keep her at his side. He needs to mate with his bruid in order to win his political campaign but he finds himself falling in love with Felicity Shaw. In the end he must choose between work or love. He may make the right decision, but is it too late to save his lies from hurting Felicity?

HE TAKES HER BREATH AWAY
Felicity Shaw wants more in life. She’ll even lie to get it, which is exactly how she lands a job with the illustrious Blackmoore family. However, it’s the head of the vampire household, Dominic Blackmoore, that has her heart racing and breath catching. The man consumes her unlike anyone ever has before. She can’t resist him though she tries. As she’s forced to work with Dominic she tries to keep away from him but he doesn’t make things easy. She may want him with a passion she’s never experienced before, but she will not be with him when he’s mating to another woman. It’s either her or no one. But one terrible lies seals their fates together in ways neither of them imagined, threatening their love and the very fabric of their relationship.

“This was a great read, filled with lots of twists and turns throughout the story.  You definitely stumble through an array of emotions throughout the read, especially surrounding Dom. You love him…you hate him…you want to slap him…then you just flat out WANT him…”~Close Encounters of the Night Kind

I loved this steamy paranormal romance. This exciting new series is sure to appeal to paranormal readers. It definitely got me on the hook and eagerly awaiting the next offering in the series. I highly recommend this book.” ~Night Owl Reviews

Happy Wicked Reading!

Heartbreaker Blog Hop

Heartbreaker Button (1)

In celebration of the most romantic holiday of the year, I am giving away 5 copies of The Fallen King, my latest paranormal romance release. In The Fallen King you will get lost in a world of magic wielders, supernatural battles, steamy (hot! hot!) romance , a love that will surpass lifetimes, and a wise cracking human matching against a cursed demonic king!

Paranormal romance books

“The Fallen King is a perfect addition to an already perfect series of extraordinary novels. It will bring old readers back and draw new readers in, and introduce them to a gorgeous world of love and hate, seduction and betrayal. I have yet to find a series I have enjoyed reading as much as these books.” ~Night Owl Reviews
“The Fallen King is a dark, sexy, and seductive continuation of the Bellum’s story in a dangerous paranormal world.  Grey’s world in “The Fallen King” is enchanting, fantastical, and mesmerizing.  Her writing style and attention to detail grabs the reader from the very beginning and never lets go.  Grey’s exceptional character development and emotional depth demonstrate her tremendous growth as a writer. ” Amber L. Barr~Vampireandimmortalbooks.com
“….an epic adventure of love and determination that will leave you swearing, crying and cheering all in the space of a few hours!” ~ Guilty Pleasures Reviews

ABOUT THE BOOK

Life couldn’t have possibly gotten worse for the demon king Alrik. But it did. He lost the love of his life. Days spent clouded in black and gray were brightened only with the lovely Arianna near. Her light kept the darkness at bay if only for a few moments.

And now she’s gone leaving him alone. Now he has nobody. But he has purpose.

A purpose—steely determination—for revenge against the one who cursed him. His mother. She’s out there in the rift, gathering forces, for what, he’s unsure. A mere human witch by the name Abbigail Krenshaw is the key to saving himself and killing his mother—or so a little old seer tells him under sword point. Small, fragile, and breakable Abbigail almost reminds him of his lost love, yet she’s different. Strong, charming, always pushing him in ways that Arianna wouldn’t dare. He can feel her worming her way into his battered, blackened heart and can’t decide whether he wants to close her inside forever, or lock her out.

He needs Abbigail. He needs the human witch to sacrifice herself in order to save his tortured soul. He’s more than willing to sacrifice her for his purpose, but the more he’s around her the more difficult it becomes to uphold the decision. Can he really use her to save himself and let her die? His heart screams no but his mind says yes.

Finding that right book – A pirate story

What is it about a good book that drives us to excitement? I know for me the excitement begins in the hunt for the next book to read. I’ve always compared the edgy, excited feeling to that of a drug-addict looking for his fix. It’s a dramatic comparison and one I know nothing about personally (unless watching Intervention counts) but I do have a flair for exaggeration. Which makes me ridiculous often and therefore hilarious.

Yes, that's Fabio.

Yes, that’s Fabio.

I LOVE finding new books to read. I might even like it as much as actually settling into a new book and reading. The hunt is an experience all on its own.

Personally, I do research. I figure out what I’m in the mood for.

Lately, it’s been swashbuckling pirates from the olden-days where women always wore dresses (where real ladies had women to dress them!) and men could be rakes or rogues. We don’t call people that any more; in fact I’d question the fact that any one ever really used those words at all. (I’m surely wrong about that) For all I know it was an invention of romance writers some years ago. They are such sensual words: a rake, a rogue. It almost makes me shiver. Besides, when you have a tall, muscle-clad pirate who wears his shirtsleeves rolled up and his collar unbuttoned as he mans his ship, I can’t help but think (as a woman, naturally) oh yes. And, if he can do this while carrying a woman on his arm (see: any pirate romance novel cover ever) then I am only doubly impressed and must hasten to purchase said novel.

Romance_novels_015

What is with the white shirts? All these pirate heroes are always wearing white shirts. Logically I think it’s because dyed shirts back then might be expensive so white was common. However, my feminine writer/reader side thinks it might be so that we can all glory at how tan and golden these men really are. White really helps the contrast.

So, I hunt.

It’s a difficult undertaking because there are many requirements the book must meet. Such as 1) the book must be in a series, 2) the book must be sexy, 3) it must be funny without simpering heroines (bawdy women, please) 4) and lastly, it should surprise me. Naturally, I won’t learn if the book is filled with many of these attributes unless I actually start reading it. So, I look at the cover, read the blurb, buy the book, and hope for the best.

Ah, the hunt is over.

I’ve finally settled on a book and it had better be so damned good that I can gobble up the entire six book series in two days, tops! If it isn’t, the disappointment after all that searching, after discarding so many other choices that had potential just for this one book, I might just slam it closed and not touch another book for months. This level of disappointment has happened to me before. And, since the book was such a disappointment I couldn’t even tell you what the name of it was or who wrote it. All I do remember is the long dry spell of being scared to try and other books. This can go on for months even.

If you’re like me, then you get scared. That book that you had so painstakingly chosen to read had betrayed your trust. You thought it’d meet all of your mental little requirements that make a good book. Instead, it sucked hard. Some might even say it sucked balls. At times like this, I search for those trusted authors, you know the ones. The ones you can trust to always put out quality work that you love. You search for them but find out that you’ve read all of their books. They only release, at most, 2 books a year now. What am I to do? Wait another four months…or do I take a chance.

Well, I know that while my trust has been broken by this did-not-finish novel it can be restored by the right book and author. But what if I go through the hunt again and it turns out the same? Oh, the fear is like an itchy nag under my skin making me twitch. It has to be just right! Because if it isn’t…

09dvd.1.650You end up reading something that makes you scream in shock and horror. (Or just facepalm hard enough to give yourself a headache).

So, I search for a new book, a new series and author to lose myself in, someone who can take away all the dreariness, the boredom, the anything that accompanies us all everyday. I want to find some sassy, smart heroine to live vicariously through for many hours. I hunt and I search and then, gasp, I find something. Oh, it looks so promising and the cover is even a little different!

CareFeeding

What is this? A sassy looking lady feeding the pirate. Well, I dare say, I am all about this. I already love it. Just the look on this model’s face–so confident. And, the pirate has his shirtsleeves rolled up and his collar completely open.

YES! What more could I ask for?

Oh, and it’s in a series. Yes. Now this particular book is not the first in its series by Jennifer Ashley but it is the first that caught my attention. This particular hunt turned out well for me, allowing me to devour many pirate-infested books with just enough twists and turns to feel fresh and new.

The hunt is over. The book is over. The entire series is over.

What now?

Disappointment creeps in like cold filling your bones, curling your lip down. No, you don’t want it to be over. You need more! All of these books filled all your little requirements to perfection, but they’re over. Now you need something to fill that hole again.

So, what do you do?

The answer, naturally, is to go hunting again.

Happy reading, everyone!

The Goings On in 2013

Hello ladies and sparse gentlemen!

So far this year of 2013 has been quite busy for me. The Fallen King is still freshly released and doing well. Some of the feedback I’ve been getting from readers and bloggers is really good! YAY! Those of you who have already read it got the thrill of watching (or reading, rather) a villain become a hero. Some, I came to find out, didn’t believe he could do it, that his past travesties from the previous book Ties That Bind were too much. HA! He showed you. 😉 A  strong, albeit crazy hero, laid beneath his villainous exterior.

Paranormal romance books

Enough about The Fallen King though. What this post is about is all the stuff I’ll be doing (or trying my best to do) in 2013.

Some of you may know that I am already mad at work at the first book in my newest series The Untouchables.

paranormal erotic romance booksIn Take Me, book one, the first brother you will get to know in the famous Blackmoore vampire family is Dominic. You will get to watch him meet his bruid in the most unexpected woman under a wee bit of a misconception. Due out in late February Take Me will have you laughing one moment then your jaw dropping the next at what comes out of the hero’s mouth. He has such a dirty mouth. It’s a great thing to read, let me tell ya! You can read the first chapter of Take Me right now, but be warned it’s no light stuff.

So, what does the rest of the year look like? Here is the tentative schedule. I say tentative because things happen. Once the manuscript is finished you will all have more solid dates listed. As of right now here is how my release schedule looks:

February: Take Me: The Untouchables #1 

AprilThe Untouchables #2 

JuneThe Untouchables #3

AugustThe Untouchables #4

October/NovemberContemporary romance series *new book #1

So, at the very least you can look to expect the entire Untouchables series this year and also the beginning of my next which, for the first time, will not be paranormal. I’m excited, and a little nervous about that one! At the very least we’re looking at five books this year; however, if I can make it more then I will certainly do it.

If you want to read excerpts of The Fallen King of Take Me then you can find them at my website www.tagrey.com. I hope this list looks good to you. It’ll definitely keep me busy this year. 🙂 I hope you all have prosperous 2013’s and that you read many good books that put a smile on your face and take you away from life for awhile.

Happy reading,

T. A. Grey

The Bellum Sisters Trilogy – Book Trailer

 

Acclaim for The Bellum Sisters Trilogy:

“T. A. Grey’s “The Bellum Sisters Trilogy” is a provocative look into the lives of three young women as they come of age in a paranormal world. Ms. Grey’s world is not only magical, but erotic, enchanted, and deadly. In addition to the fiercely passionate female characters, Grey creates a fresh cast of male counterpoints who are seductive, gritty, rugged, and noble. “The Bellum Sisters Trilogy” is an encouraging start to a promising new series.  I look forward to reading more from Ms. Grey in the future.” copyright 2012 by Amber L. Barr  www.vampireandimmortalbooks.com

“Having never read a novel by this author before, I was delighted to pick up this novel. It [Chains of Frost] is extremely fast paced and never slows down. The story flows beautifully together, and will lead perfectly into the second novel. This is a truly enchanting novel that will grab the interest of readers everywhere and will not let go.” Night Owl Romance

“Bonds of Fire is, as I previously mentioned, the second book in the trilogy of the Bellum sisters. It is a wonderful story, moving fast and never stopping for anything. It ties in beautifully to the previous book, with the stories blending with each other, and working together to build the third novel, which is forthcoming. Romance lovers everywhere will adore this book (and the series) as much as I have.” Night Owl Romance.

“Ties That Bind is a hair-raising, nail biting, heartwarming adventure of the grandest scale. Of all three of the Bellum sisters, Lily would have to be my personal favorite, as she is charming, quirky, and not a little bit spunky and outrageous. She is also still a delicate and unsure young lady. This is a perfect conclusion to the Bellum sisters trilogy, and I absolutely loved it.” Night Owl Romance
