Synopsis:

Casey Daniels has a past forged in Hell. Despite the friends, the endless supply of women, and the muscle car he spent years restoring, it still eats away at him.

Grace Paterson is in Sydney as a temporary bassist for Jamieson, the band Casey handles security for. She’s also infuriating, off-limits, and completely irresistible.

A deal is struck, and despite their intense and powerful connection, both think it will be easy to walk away. But life can be more ruthless than either of them ever imagined. Not only does Grace have a secret she’s desperate to keep, Casey has questions from his past that he’s willing to do anything to get answers for.

It’s not until someone wants one of them dead that Casey realises his love for Grace is the one thing he could never walk away from.

In a story of revenge, betrayal, secrets, and love, Casey will need to reconcile his past with his present, before the future he never knew he wanted is snatched away.
Give Me Grace Teaser 6

Excerpt:

Cooper topped up my wine glass again without missing a beat.

I glanced sideways. “Are you trying to get me drunk?”

He leaned in, whispering, “Yes. Is it working? You seem a bit edgy.”

That was because my body was craving sex. Lots of it. With Casey. A quick glance across the table found him watching our exchange intently.

Between the revolving front door of the duplex and his roommate, finding privacy was going to be more complex than long division. He would either have to climb a ladder to my window or sex was going to happen in the back of his car, and because he was yet to mention anything about the damaged backseat, that option was off the table. The man was either biding his time or he hadn’t seen it yet. Considering I was still alive, I was voting for the latter, but it was only a matter of time.

Focusing on my plate, I picked up a piece of chicken and peeled the skin away. “Can you pass me a napkin?” I asked Mac on my left and licked my finger.

My phone vibrated in the pocket of my dress as she handed it over. Pulling it out, I saw a text message from Casey. I glanced at him across the table but he appeared in deep conversation with Travis. Swiping a finger across the splintered screen, I read the message.

Do that again.

Do what again? Lick my finger? I put my phone down, and after a quick glance around the table, I slid my finger in my mouth, sucking gently before dragging it slowly from between my lips. Finished with the slightly erotic display, I glanced over at Casey. His eyes were locked on my mouth, dark with hunger. Wincing slightly, he reached down and with a quick, casual movement, adjusted himself in his pants.

I quickly tapped out a return message.

Do that again.

He did.

After reading my reply, he actually reached down, cupped the bulge in his pants and squeezed. My entire body clenched at the sight, forcing a light sweat to break out across my brow. I reached for the wine Cooper poured, feeling the urge to rub the ice-cold glass soothingly across my forehead.

After downing another half glass, I set it down and caught Casey intent on his phone, his fingers tapping away.

This was sexting? How did people survive it?

Mac was talking to me when my phone eventually alerted the incoming message. After taking a bite of chicken, I picked it up and promptly began choking.

If my cock looks half as good as your finger did the way it slid in and out of your mouth, then I want in.

Mac pounded me on the back with surprising force while I choked and wheezed. Jesus. The message basically said blow me now, yet he’d managed to word it in such a way that I was ready to get on my knees right then and there. The man could charm the panties off a nun. I put my phone down to grab at the napkin Cooper waved in my face. Casey sat across from the table laughing at me while I dabbed at my watery eyes.

I narrowed my gaze on him with deliberate intent before I tapped out another message.

You said you were good with your tongue, Casey. Prove it.

Travis was talking to him when he opened the message. I watched his eyes flare wide before he typed out a quick reply and pocketed his phone.

Upstairs. You’ve got five minutes.

I should’ve known better than to issue a challenge to Casey of all people. He was the type of man you saw running towards danger while everyone else was running in the opposite direction.

I utilised a good three minutes eating another piece of chicken, finishing off my wine and getting caught in conversation with Cooper. I spent another minute wondering what the hell I’d gotten myself into. In the last minute left, I excused myself from the table and stood on unsteady legs. I glanced behind me as I walked inside. Casey was laughing at some comment Travis made that I didn’t quite catch. His eyes met mine for a split second as he said something in reply, and they were on fire. That was all it took to know I’d never wanted anything more in my life than I wanted him right now.

Bella Jewel – Number Thirteen
We’re thirteen girls, captive to a man we rarely see.
Obedience will become all we know. It is the only emotion we’re permitted to feel.
When we’re bad, we’re punished. When we’re good, we’re rewarded. Our scars run deep. Yet we survive, because we have to, because HE teaches us too.
All of us are special, we feel it with everything we are.
He has us for a reason, but it’s a reason we don’t know.

Belle Aurora – Friend Zoned
Nikolai Leokov never thought he’d fall in love with the only girl he’s ever befriended.
Valentina Tomic has issues with commitment after the ultimate betrayal.
When Tina decides to make broody Nik’s day better, she never thought she would end up friends with the hard man.

Carmen Jenner – Welcome To Sugartown
Ana Belle never wanted anything more than to hang up her apron, jump on her Vespa and ride off into the sunset, leaving Sugartown in the dust.
Elijah Cade never wanted anything more than a hot meal, a side of hot arse and a soft place to lay his head at night where he could forget about his past.
But you know what they say about wanting: you always want what you can’t have.

Chantal Fernando – Maybe This Time
Moving in with my half-brother Xander, I had no idea what to expect.
But nothing could have prepared me for this.
My brother’s friends are wild, protective, secretive, always around.
And drop dead gorgeous.

Jennifer Ryder – Spark
Not many people know that I, Eevie Lawson, have a problem. An addiction to romance novels. I eat them for breakfast. I hide it the best I can, but I need them to breathe. It’s how I cope.
I’ve had a swag of book boyfriends, but now that I’m free from the responsibility of caring for my three younger brothers, it’s time to find one in the flesh.
In real life, no girl meets their hero on page one, or even at the end of chapter one. I should know.

Kasey Millstead – Illicit Desire
Beau Diesel…He was my “one”. My one that I would sacrifice everything for. My one that I wanted to be with until I took my final breath. My one that completed me.
I wanted him. I needed him. But he was off limits. I knew this, but the risk of consequences didn’t outweigh the depth of my desire.
So, I fought for our love.

Kate McCarthy – Give Me Love
Evie Jamieson, a former wild child, is not only a headstrong, smart-mouthed trouble magnet, she is also a lead singer with a plan. That plan involves uprooting her band, including her two best friends guitarist Henry and band manager Mac, to Sydney to kick off their dreams of hitting the big time.
Jared Valentine is the older brother of Evie’s best friend Mac and also the man determined to make Evie his.

Pepper Winters – Tears Of Tess
My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect. Then it all changed.I was sold. Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.

Rachel Brookes – Just Breathe
In the eyes of outsiders, Tate Connors has it all; the ultimate LA bachelor who is content with his lifestyle of wild nights, women and one night stands. He’s Mr. Unpredictable with looks that could destroy any woman with one glance.
The craziness of Los Angeles throws them into the chaotic path of each other. Savannah becomes the perfect game, and Tate becomes the ultimate prey. Lines are crossed, emotions are smashed, and the idea of who they truly are begins to be tangled.

TJ Hamilton – You Can Call Me Miranda
I was born to dance. I may have even become the best ballerina this country has ever seen.
But when you have no one to guide you as a young person, you become very lost.
I craved love and attention, and I found it in men.

These books contain super hot sex scenes and adult content 18+ only.

Update

It’s been a busy year!

Phew!
Tired Gif 1

I’ve just returned from a writer’s retreat in the hinterland. No phone access, no television. Nothing. I had withdrawals, but I also had a great time! And now I’m back, re-energised and ready to finish the last few chapters of my next book.

I get questions daily on where the hell is Give Me Grace (and that is so cool because I’m excited that you’re excited for this story!) I am still writing Casey’s book (get on with it, you say) and I know. I AM. I’m happy to say the book will be released next month. Not long now! I’m going to be honest and say I had no idea his story would take forever to write, but that’s how long it feels. Is that how long it feels like you’ve been waiting? The GOOD NEWS is that the book WILL be longer than Give Me Love and we know at 428 pages, that book was pretty epic. So you get so much more Casey than even I anticipated.
I also had the cover finished last week and you are going to love it! I will have the reveal sometime in the next four weeks and I’ll share it on all my social media so you won’t miss it!

If you want to keep more up to date than my random blog posts or Facebook posts, you can join the Kate McCarthy Badass Brigade on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/badassbrigade/). It’s a small street team/fan group where I chat every day, share excerpts and daily updates. I also do weekly and monthly prize giveaways to thank those who go forth into the wilds of social media and pimp my books 🙂

Thanks for listening xo

Give Me Grace Update

I’ve been overrun with messages and emails asking me “Where the hell is my Casey?”

Well, rest assured he is about. I know the tentative release date for Give Me Grace was January 2014 BUT (eeeeekkkk don’t hit me) due to unforeseen circumstances, I’m now WAY BEHIND schedule.
You should all know that Casey’s book is under construction as I type this AND I have a cover!!!! It will be revealed shortly, along with the new release date. Just trust me when I say there is a bit of pressure (from me) to get Casey’s story right and I want to be sure I give it my full focus and the justice it deserves. I want this story to perfect for you guys.

Promise I’m doing this right now.

 

Typing Furiously

 

I will announce the release date as soon as I have it available.
Thanks for your patience. Here is an excerpt of Give Me Grace (unedited and subject to copyright and change):

I’d only just arrived at Jared and Evie’s house for their Sunday barbecue before I was back in the car with Travis and on our way to the airport. Frog, the bass guitarist with Evie’s band, had been in a car accident on the way to their place. The outcome was a broken arm. With the band playing at the awards ceremony that night, it wasn’t looking good for their big night. Mac was frothing at the mouth from stress, Quinn looked ready to pass out, and Evie was greener than she was yesterday.

Arriving to the chaos had come as no surprise. The Jamieson and Valentine clan might have been my family, and don’t get me wrong, when everything was good with them, it was like the stars aligned and shimmery fairy dust fell from the heavens, but when it went to shit, it went there via the seventh circle of hell.

Taking that into consideration, offering to collect their replacement guitarist from the airport with Travis had seemed like a good idea, until Travis opened his mouth about last night.

“You and Morgan?”

I shook my head in answer, focusing my attention on driving rather than explaining myself.

“Was she the one that went home with you on Friday night? You’re seeing her now?”

“Calm the fuck down, Trav.” Stopping at a red light, I turned to face him. “If we’re going to have a gossip session about my night out, maybe we should start with the outfit I chose first before discussing whether I put out or not.”

The light turned green and I accelerated, satisfied when the small burst of speed left the traffic behind me scrambling to catch up. The deflection would only work for so long. Travis and Coby had seen Morgan last night when I answered the door. The suggestive gleam in her eye and the overexposure of skin left no doubt to her intentions. Between that and the damn sex shop bag on the counter, there was no doubt I’d been on board with those intentions.

“So?” Travis waved his hand. “What did you wear then?”

Smug sonofabitch.

“Fine.” My hands tightened on the steering wheel as I hit Sydney’s M1 freeway and opened the car up. “I fucked her, okay? I may plan on doing it again. Do I need to check every potential fuck with you first and get your approval in duplicate?”

“You know what? Yes. You fucking do if you’re gonna pull shit like this. We have contracts with the Government that includes the damn Sydney Police. Our firm doesn’t need you going and poking your cock into the middle all of that. There is no doubt we will be dealing with her in an official capacity, and if she gets your customary brush off, because I’ve never seen you with someone more than once so this in itself is already so far out of your character you may as well be a pod person right now, then how are we supposed to trust her to have our backs? What is it, Casey, you like her that much she’s worth that kind of hit?”

Travis took a deep breath. He sat there fuming in the passenger seat, waiting for my answer as I negotiated through the traffic and took the airport exit off the motorway. I didn’t have one. Well, not one that wouldn’t give away my intentions, so I kept my mouth shut.

“If you’re just looking to get laid, find someone else,” he muttered, unable to leave it alone.

Reaching the domestic terminal of Sydney airport, I found a spot and parked the car. Turning off the ignition, I sat back in my seat and took a deep breath as I stared out the windshield. Travellers were moving at a rapid pace, wheeling their suitcases through the cars and over the pedestrian crossings.

“I’m not just looking to get laid. That’s the problem.”

Travis furrowed his brows. “I don’t get it.”

Yanking the keys, I got out of the car. Travis followed and I beeped the locks, shoving the keys in my jeans pocket. “She works homicide now,” I reminded him as we strode towards the building entrance.

After a moment, he mumbled, “Ah hell.”

The pileup of cars waiting for pedestrians to cross was long. We both jogged over the crossing and towards the front doors. They whooshed open, emitting cool air as we strode inside.

“Let it go, Casey. It’s in the past. You can’t change it or fix it and getting Morgan involved is going to make it all worse.”

Anger burned in my chest. I grabbed his bicep, effectively halting him, and looked him in the eye. “Fuck you, Trav.” My jaw ticked as I fought to lock the resentment down. “It’s not that simple. How can I let go when I’ve lost everything already? If I had answers, then maybe I…”

I, what? Could move on? Forgive myself?

“You could what?”

I shook my head and starting walking again. “Let’s just collect whoever the hell it is we’re here to collect, okay?”

In tense silence, we arrived at the gate and waited as passengers started flowing out. That was when I saw her walking directly towards us, a guitar case slung casually over her back.

“Holy fuck,” I breathed, standing beside Travis as I took in the deep red tangle of hair flowing down her back and colourful tattoo that wound around the length of her bare arm and shoulder. Tiny black leather shorts displayed long slender legs that strode towards us with purpose. The blood in my veins heated as I fixated on her. My mind immediately had me bending her over from behind, pulling on that wild mass of hair, yanking her head back as I thrust inside her, over and over. “Do you think that’s her?”

Travis checked the photo Quinn messaged through to his phone so we’d recognise who we were collecting. “I think so.”

She appeared oblivious to the people craning their necks to get a second glimpse of her, absorbed in her phone as her finger scrolled down its screen. For a second she glanced up and it was like getting punched in the gut. This girl wasn’t just beautiful—she was shock and awe. Her eyes locked on mine for a split second. They were a wild, stormy blue and immediately I imagined her on her knees, those wide eyes staring up at me as I fucked her mouth.

Who was I kidding? I’d have had her any which way. All I needed was a plan on how to go about it.

I glanced at Travis. “Who is she?”

“Henry’s sister apparently.”

Henry wasn’t just lead guitarist for Jamieson, he was a friend. That instantly turned her from a quick fuck into a complication. Hell hath no fury like a brother protecting the virtue of his little sister. He would hack off my balls with a rusty spoon.

Morgan, Morgan, Morgan, I silently chanted, reminding myself that I had no business in attempting to build a harem, but my eyes were locked on her and wouldn’t budge. “What did Quinn say her name was?”

Travis checked his phone again. “Grace.”

Grace was… suddenly shouting into her phone. Her bag dropped at her feet as hurt and anger collided violently in her eyes. The abrupt disturbance began attracting attention. The general public gave her a wide berth as they moved past. I heard her shriek, “Two weeks,” into the phone, or it could’ve been, “blue cheeks,” for all I knew–we weren’t standing that close. She took in the airport at a glance and in an unpredictable turn of events, she seized her bag and made a rapid exit. Airport security moved in quickly, following her fleeing form.

My mouth fell open as the scene unfolded before us. “What the fuck was that?”

Travis shot me a look of wide-eyed disbelief. “I have no idea.”

Coming soon

2014 is coming! What is it bringing for my readers?

Well, first off, Merry Christmas!!!
If you are anything like me, you’re probably exhausted after running the gauntlet of Christmas and are now struggling to make it through the day.
Tired Gif 2
And your demon children are busy running loose, ripping up the house and leaving devastation in their wake.
I’m just sitting here, sucking on a wine bottle, feeling numb as I observe the aftermath. The piles of laundry, dirty dishes, toys, fridge exploding with leftovers (here let me take out another bottle of wine to create more space in there), a phone that won’t stop and.. OMG I’m whining (no one likes a whiner…).
Tired Gif 5
Somehow I think I’ll be waiting a long time for the housekeeping fairy.

So the year is almost done. I’ve released three books to show for it. Am happy about that. I’m proud of my little books that could. But it leads me into the big question for 2014….

Now What Gif

MORE BOOKS YEAH!

‘Something ran deep beneath the surface of his beauty. Even I could see that. Something that made me want to chill the bitch factor, hold him tight and tell him if he was mine, I’d never let go, but I couldn’t do that and he looked a bit like he needed someone to do that.’
Give Me Grace, 2014.

What else? *shrugs*
I haven’t decided. The title of the next book in the Give Me series will be announced (who is it going to be – Henry or Mac?) so I’ll also be starting on that. Stay tuned.

So today I get to sit around all day in my pyjamas (really no different to any other day) while hubs takes our ferals swimming. I’ll push some of the rubble aside to clear a space so I can sit down and type, or maybe I’ll just sit outside where I don’t have to see it.
Or maybe I’ll just do this…
Tired Gif 1Can you sense a theme here?
I need sleep.
But I need to write too, so yeah, that’s happening first. Sleep is for the weak!

I somehow feel like this post has lost its way. I’m sorry.

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and managed to squeeze in reading some really awesome books!
