Maureen Mayer's Unforeseen Heartbeat Release Blitz

Unforeseen Heartbeat  by Maureen Mayer


Title: Unforeseen Heartbeat (Second Chances #2)

Author: Maureen Mayer

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: February 24, 2014


Synopsis for Unforeseen Heartbeat:


Used… Broken… Confused…


It only took one drunken mistake four years ago for Maddie Harrington to learn that when you fully give yourself over to a man, you should never expect anything in return. Since that night, her views on love have become distorted, believing men would only want her for the pleasure her body could bring them. She in turn finds herself hooking up with random guys but never keeps them around long enough to see if there could possibly be something more.


That is…until Hunter Bryant enters the picture.


When the handsome pre-med student shows up in the right place at the right time, captivating her with his stormy gaze, she immediately pushes him away, thinking he’s no different than any other guy. The deeper Hunter delves into her life, trying to break through her iron-clad walls, the more she begins to question whether she is truly capable of opening her heart up to another man. 


Maddie soon finds herself forced to make a difficult decision, one that will forever change both of their lives. Will she shut Hunter out of her life for good, or will she finally open up her heart and allow herself the life she never dreamed she deserved?

Re-Release of Bring Me Back by Taryn Plendl

Re-Release of~Bring Me Back, by Taryn Plendl Hosted By Book Addicts One Stop PR Shop

Author Bio:

Taryn discovered her love for books at an early age, spending many hours lost in someone else's story.

It wasn't until well into adult hood that she discovered, late at night while the house was quiet, that she had just as many stories inside her just waiting to be let out. Writing has been a way for her to step away from reality and live a bit through her fun and sometimes damaged characters. You will almost always find a Happy Ever After at the end of her stories. She can't help it, it's an addiction.

She's a Southwestern girl living a Mid-Atlantic life with her husband of seventeen years and two incredible daughters who inspire her daily. She is proud to be an advocate for her child with autism, and feels incredibly blessed to be able to see the world through her eyes. Her daughters teach her more than she could ever teach them.

She enjoys reading, writing and spending time with her family, but cherishes those quiet nights after everyone is asleep when she can curl up on the couch with her fifteen year old dog. (Shh, don't tell...He's not supposed to be on the couch.)
Keep an eye out for more from her!

Are their new found feelings enough to bring them back from the pain of their pasts? Bring Me Back is a story of two very broken people who struggle through tragedy to learn to depend on each other, trust and love again.
