The Saturday Showcase with Guest Author Louise Wise



Welcome to

The Saturday Showcase

Greetings and thanks for joining me on this super scorchio Saturday!  I hope that your week has been better than mine, I've been plagued with angry peeps and bad weather, ah well, could be worse, right? LOL

Anyway back to the main event, this post is slightly different from my normal Showcase as I have a 2 for 1 offer happening.  So today's promo features two fantastic Chick Lit Novels by a very talented author, Louise Wise, so without further adieu...


The Fall of the Misanthrope: I bitch, therefore I am


Chick Lit with a dark side
 
“They say I’m hard ‘as hard as my acrylic nails’ but what they don’t understand is I have to be. I can’t let anyone in. It’s called self-preservation.” – Valerie Anthrope







Book Blurb:

What happens when Cinderella is brought, screaming into the 21st century where one ugly sister is an illness, the other an emotion that nobody wants—and Valerie Anthrope has both. 


In comes Ellen Semple, the fairy godmother with her magic wand aka interference, and insists that she can help Valerie. 


Playboy Lex is the flirtation Prince Charming who in the beginning his ‘bed ‘em and leave ‘em’ motto applies to ALL women, but Valerie’s cool towards him and offers a challenge.


A kitten called Boots is the glass slipper and is presumed dead when she goes missing. How does she fit into Valerie’s life?



A Proper Charlie


Light and fluffy Chick Lit



All Charlie Wallis wanted was a career and a man. Not just any man, but a man to love and cherish her; someone she can confide in, share jokes and toothbrushes. A life partner, not a husband – she’s modern – and a couple of babies like the other girls in her council block. And maybe a fast-paced career like those power-suited women racing around with spouted paper cups of latte in one hand and a briefcase in the other. It wasn’t much to ask, was it?



Poor Charlie, she should’ve stayed home.







Excerpt:



Charlie climbed off his lap and stepped out of her jeans and underwear as Andy lowered his to his thighs. He indicated that she straddle him again.

‘Is it in?’ she asked.

‘Hang on. Yep, it’s in.’ He sighed, and settled back with this eyes closed. ‘Enjoy,’ he said.

She bounced up and down as Andy sat back with his hands behind his head.

‘Harder,’ he instructed. Breathless from effort more than ecstasy, she moved up and down with more force. She wondered what was on the menu at the Rat and Parrot. She fancied a nice juicy burger.

Andy groaned.

Maybe with a jacket potato instead of fries. She didn’t like those thin fries that seemed to be served up all the time. What happened to chunky chips?

‘You done yet?’ she looked down at Andy. He opened one eye.

‘Nearly.’

Charlie bounced some more, telling herself that it was all good exercise for the thighs. She turned her head to catch the time. She should really be making tracks. She bounced harder, hoping he’d come.

‘That’s right. Harder, Lots, harder.’

Up. Down. Up. Down. Her thighs were aching, and her right knee was beginning to click with every ‘up’. She noticed a spider high on the wall; it was striding up towards the ceiling and she wondered if it’d make it before Andy came.

Andy yelped, and Charlie smiled at the spider. ‘You’re a winner,’ she said.

‘I am pretty good, ain’t I?’ Andy agreed as she pulled off him.

Charlie picked up her underwear and jeans as Andy barely rose from the chair to pull up his clothes. He sat back down, adjusted his anatomy, and fastened his fly. With one hand he reached for her discarded tea on the floor and began to drink it while, with the other, he picked up the remote control and turned on the TV.
