Book Blitz | Sweet Liar (Candy #2) by Debra Doxer

Sweet Liar (Candy #2)



by Debra Doxer



 

Release Date 10/20/15

Summary from Goodreads:

Sometimes lies are sweeter than the truth.







Beauty is alluring; it can disguise the ugliness beneath. But scarred beauty is

even more potent to a girl who vowed never to let her heart be broken again. It

was an easy vow for Candy to keep until she met Jonah, an arrogant boy with a

face that would be too perfect if not for the scar that marred the skin beside

his eye.

That imperfect boy earned her trust and won her heart, but the ties that bind

people together are fragile, especially when lies are told. Trust is also

fragile, and once broken, doesn’t heal like a heart. Trust has to be earned

again, and Jonah desperately wants Candy’s trust back.

But Candy has more than Jonah to worry about. Her father is in trouble, and she

intends to help him whether he likes it or not. People tell her he’s a bad man,

and that may be true, but he’s not all bad. Deep down, she understands his

brand of badness because she’s so much like him.

When Candy finally learns the truth, she’ll have to grow up fast, let go of old

grievances, and realize that being vulnerable doesn’t make her weak. In fact,

opening herself up may be the very thing that makes her whole again.

Cover Reveal | The Lies and Truth Duet Box Set by Rachael Duncan + excerpt & teaser + #giveaway!

Title: The Lies and Truth Duet Box Set

Author: Rachael Duncan

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: October 26, 2015

Marry for money.

This has been my motto. A motto that was drilled into my head at a young age. It’s who I am. Who I’m expected to be. All of that changes when he walks into my life.

I can’t lie.

I can’t hide.

I can’t deceive.

As my personal security guard, he sees through me and makes me second guess everything. I can’t escape him or the way he makes me feel. He makes me smile. He makes me want more from life.

Can I sacrifice those who depend on me for my own happiness?

I’m Elizabeth Fitzgerald.

I’m a Senator’s wife.

And I hate my life.

Keep it professional.

I had one job to do, and falling for Elizabeth Fitzgerald was not it. Being former Special Forces, I’m no stranger to fighting, but this is different. This is personal. The stakes feel much higher and the struggle to save her will be my most challenging mission yet.

But I have a secret. A secret that threatens to tear apart everything we’ve built.

You know me as Alex Matthews.

My mistake was getting involved with her, knowing what was on the line.

Their mistake was taking me away from her.

“Hidden in Lies by Rachael Duncan was simply wonderful. It’s a story that shows that picture perfect outside isn’t always picture perfect inside.” ~ Give Me Books

“I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet, sexy, steamy, suspenseful, and had quite a few twists and turns along the way. This book was really good and just as the getting was getting good… BAM, the book ended making me want so much more.” ~  Renee Entress’ Book Blog – Hidden In Lies

“Great action packed story full of suspense. Questions we had from book one are answered in this part of the story. Gotta admit I preferred this book than book one. Loved it.” ~ 2 Friends Pimp Your Books – Uncovered by Truth

“Overall I really enjoyed this closure of their story. I also enjoyed the danger and suspense that seemed more prominent in this book. It made it a page turner for sure. I didn’t want to put it down, I was totally engrossed in this story and was well satisfied with the ending.” ~ Nerdy, Dirty & Flirty – Uncovered by Truth

The short separation has done nothing to cool the heat between us. It’s evident in the way he drinks me in with his eyes, and the way my core tightens with his presence. I open my mouth to speak, but close it and bite my bottom lip afraid of saying the wrong thing. I don’t need to worry about the right words, because something inside Alex snaps and he comes charging toward me. He grabs my face with both hands before sealing my lips with his. I realize that no words need to be spoken. We’re communicating enough with our mouths.


I want you. I need you. You make me feel special, wanted, important, desired. Don’t let me go.


All of the things I can’t say out loud pour into this kiss. I tried to ignore it before, but there’s no denying it now. I want Alex. No, I need him. He’s become the one bright spot to my otherwise dark days. It’s his smile, his bright blue eyes, his voice, his scent, and now his kiss that make each day worth getting up for. I know I should pull away. This is wrong and Cal is in the next room, but all rational thinking flies out the window while he’s caressing me with his lips and holding me to him. He draws me in closer and I feel the ever-growing bulge in his pants spurring on my own arousal and soaking my panties. I forget all about my current heartache and anger over today, over my life. Right now I can live in the moment, in the comfort Alex’s touch provides.


Alex slows the kiss down, giving me a few pecks before he rests his forehead against mine, hands still holding my face. “What the hell am I doing?” he asks, more to himself than me. His eyes are closed tight and I wish there was something I could say, but all words fail me. I’m still riding high from that kiss and my brain is unable to perform basic functions at this point. His eyes open, staring deep into mine. “God, I’m so sorry. I know we shouldn’t—we can’t do this. You’re not mine and I had no right doing that.” His voice is strained, pained even as he removes his hands from me and takes a step back. I feel deserted from the loss of contact. “I’ve tried, Elizabeth, believe me I’ve tried to stay away from you. To keep it professional, but I can’t. I need you to keep your distance from me. Please.” His eyes are pleading as he confesses what we’ve both felt.

Rachael Duncan is an Army wife living in North Carolina with her husband and two kids. She grew up in Nashville, Tennessee and went on to graduate from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville with a bachelor’s degree in political science. After working on Capitol Hill for a short time, she realized that a career in politics just wasn’t for her. A couple years later, she rediscovered her love for reading and writing. She’s the author of Tackled by Love as well.

Frankie
I stopped and faced the ocean bent over at the waist with my hands braced against my knees, feeling like a ton of bricks were pushing on my lungs.  I decided to just walk back and take it easy.  I took a few steps toward home and then heard him.  He was barely speaking above a whisper, but I could hear him like he was yelling in my ear.

“Tell me your name.”

I inhaled and wasn’t sure exhaling was in my future.  We had a good thing going, and now he had to go and ruin it by wanting to know my name.  Everything would change from this point on.  He was a man of honour.  He couldn’t know who I was and not tell someone.  It was the someones who could hurt me and I needed to do everything I could to avoid them finding me.  My name wasn’t exactly a household name, but in certain circles, it was known and more so, the man I was avoiding was pretty much known everywhere.

“I can’t tell you that, Hardy.”

He stared at me with emotions running wild across his face.  Like a slot machine they spun on until they landed on the winner.  Pain.  He slowly walked toward where I was rooted.  I couldn’t move if another hurricane force wind came upon us there and then.  I felt like if I broke our stare down, I would feel the pain of it for a really long time.

“Why?” he whispered.  I could hear him clearly now that he was standing just a foot in front of me.  “I need to hear it.  I need to know your name.”

“Why?”  I echoed his words back to him.  “Why does it matter?  What are we doing here, Hardy?  We’re just running.  That’s it.  We don’t need to know anything about each other, we just need to run.”

“How long are you just going to run, Red?  How long until you let me know you?  I’ve been here.  Every day for the past two weeks, running behind you, but I’m done with running behind you.”  He began to close the space between us until he was breathing my air.  “I’m done waiting for you to give me a piece of you.  I want it now.”  He lowered his voice and began to lean in.  “Give.  Me.  Your.  Name.”

I had huge personal space issues.  He was pushing every limit I had and it terrified me.  I felt a tear start to trickle down my face.  We were frozen, at a standstill.  One of us had to move first and I realized I was actually afraid his move would be to walk away.  Something woke up inside of me at that realization.  Being alone was beginning to be pretty damn lonely.

“Frances, but my friends call me Frankie.”  I whispered the words he was looking for and then I promptly turned and ran like the track star I once was, all the way back to the safety of my house.  Away from Hardy.

excerpt

 

“Stop moving or I’ll accidently put it in the wrong place,” I ordered Nik. You would think a guy who had done military conscription at home in Berlin, and stood at attention for long periods of time in all sorts of weather, could stand still for a few minutes.  

“Sah-sha, is it even possible to put it in the wrong place?” he asked, with a raised eyebrow. I couldn’t help but smile—the way he said my name with his German accent always caught my attention; it started like sarsaparilla and finished like a dance.  

Niklas Wagner, star midfielder for the national soccer team the Santa Ana Saints, had come to me for a suit adjustment—yep by day I was the media officer for the Saints and by night I designed; it was my hobby-cum-passion. Nik was standing in front of me wearing only the black suit pants and the jacket, no shirt—I could see all those well-developed abdominal muscles just waiting to be touched and I wouldn’t mind tracing those grooves with my tongue either, up and down, tight and tense. Is it getting hot in here? Then I accidently did what I had been threatening, jabbed him with a pin.

“Ouch,” he yelped and stepped back.

“See? What did I tell you? Stand at attention,” I barked.  

He stiffened and stood straight… for about five seconds…
