Spotlight/Giveaway - Deadly Obsession by Kristine Cayne


When an Oscar-winning movie star meets a department–store photographer …

Movie star Nic Lamoureux appears to have a playboy’s perfect life. But it’s a part he plays, an act designed to conceal a dark secret he carries on his shoulders. His empty days and nights are a meaningless blur until he meets the woman who fulfills all his dreams. She and her son are the family he’s always wanted --- if she can forgive a horrible mistake from his past.

A Hollywood dream …

Lauren James, a widowed single mother, earns barely enough money to support herself and her son. When she wins a photography contest and meets Nic, the man who stars in all her fantasies, her dreams, both professional and personal, are on the verge of becoming real. The attraction between Lauren and Nic is instant ---  and mutual. Their chemistry burns out of control during a photo shoot that could put Lauren on the fast track to a lucrative career.

Becomes a Hollywood nightmare.

But an ill-advised kiss makes front-page news, and the lurid headlines threaten everything Nic  and Lauren have hoped for. Before they know what’s happening, their relationship is further rocked by an obsessed and, who’ll stop at nothing --- not even murder --- to have Nic to herself. When Nic falls for Lauren, the stalker zeroes in on her as the competition.

And the competition must be eliminated.


Lauren rolled her eyes. “Fine. Do it.”

Nic bent down and brushed his lips against hers. For the first few seconds, she didn’t kiss him back, but she didn’t push him away, either. Then, on a sigh, she leaned into him and her arms locked around his neck. His tongue darted out to taste her bottom lip. Mmm… cherry --- his new favorite flavor. When her mouth opened he didn’t hesitate.

He dove in. And drowned.

He’d meant this to be a quick kiss, only now he couldn’t just stop. His lips traced a path to her throat. Cupping her bottom with his hands, he lifted her up, grinding against her. She moaned. It was a beautiful sound, one he definitely wanted to hear again.

A loud noise pierced the fog of his lust. He raised his head from where he'd’ been nuzzling Lauren’s apple-scented neck to tell whoever it was to fuck off, but as the sexual haze cleared, he swallowed his words.  The paparazzi had gathered around, applauding and calling out crude encouragements. Some snapped photos while others rolled film. Shit. He’d pay for this fuck-up and so would she.

The ParaNormal Romance Party - I a big fan of all three of the men you mentioned! Good luck with the contest :-)

Sophia Rose said...

I'm not exactly stocker material, but I'll try to be imaginative. I would have stocked Kevin Sorbo and a few of those other actors from Hercules and now I think Chris Hemsworth and Dwayne Johnson.

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity as this book looks like a great page turner with the suspense and hot romance aspects.

Unknown said...

Sophia - Kevin was definitely a looker in Hercules. Thank you for commenting and good luck with the giveaway.

Anne said...

None, I've never been a big fan of any celebrity. I'm just not wired that way.

Dwayne Johnson would be a likely prospect though. He's the one celeb who really carries off his tattoos and they seem so appropriate to someone who looks like him. He also seems nice.

Unknown said...

Anne - Dwayne Johnson is a great choice. A few others have mentioned him as well. Thank you for commenting, and good luck with the giveaway!

Tore923 said...

I could see myself stalking Tim McGraw. I think he is so hot and is a very good man. Please enter me in contest.

Unknown said...

Tore - Tim has some pretty avid fans and I wouldn't be surprised to learn there was a real stalker or two in the bunch. He is pretty fabulous! Thank you for stopping by and good luck with the contest!

Elena said...


Dustin Clare, be-still my heart! LOL!!

You make a character with his physic and skills I need to know asap! ahahaha!!!

I love it!!

Beverly said...

Sounds like a great book!

stalking, stalking, look it's Hugh Jackman! What a body! Just finished drooling over him in Real Steel.

Not sure I'd be able to catch him...but I'd like to try.

Unknown said...

Elena - I'll keep that in mind :)

Unknown said...

Beverly - Hugh Jackman! Awesome choice. He has a fantastic body and seems very humble, at least in interviews I've seen/read :) Good luck with the contest!
