Release Day Blitz for EXQUISITE INNOCENCE by Ann Mayburn
spent my entire life on my parent’s isolated religious compound,
sheltered and cut off from the rest of the world. It left me ill
prepared to face the evil that invaded my home, and after a horrific
encounter with demons masquerading as men, I fled. Some might say that
my refuge is even worse than the prison I grew up in, but the men and
women of the Iron Horse MC have been better to me than my own family.
Unfortunately, the trouble I thought I left behind is still hunting me
for reasons I don’t understand. Hustler has been assigned to be my
guardian, but to my foolish heart he may be the biggest threat of all.
Everything inside of me tells me we belong together, that I’ve been put
on this earth to be his, but he insists we’ll never be anything more
as long as I can remember the Iron Horse MC has been my family. I’ve
fought, bled, and sacrificed a piece of my soul for my brothers, but
I’ve been set up, labeled a traitor by those I trusted most. My only
hope comes in the form of a naive young girl I’ve been tasked with
protecting, a woman who’s haunted both my heart and dreams. She’s
everything good and beautiful in this world, and while I’ll never allow
her to tarnish herself by loving me, I’ll do everything I can to make
sure she survives.
Innocence is a 55,000 word short novel and book 1 of 2 for Hustler and
Lyric’s story. Book 2, the conclusion of their story in the Iron Horse
MC saga, will be out before Christmas. (This unconventional MC series is
one that SHOULD be read in order, starting with Exquisite Trouble)
over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband
and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives
she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy
Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan
Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful
Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.
a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she
could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in,
she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were
great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a
big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a
big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet
honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex
scenes in the story just as muchd etail and plot as everything
else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the
wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.
Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the
background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has accepted that her Muse
has a severe case of ADD.
Ann loves to talk with her fans, as long as they realize she’s weird, and that sarcasm doesn’t translate well via text.
