Jennifer Lyon's OBSESSION Book Tour & Giveaway!!

The Plus One Chronicles
A wicked proposition…
A sensual possession…
A dark obsession...
The Plus One Chronicles: Searing passion and fiery vengeance collide in three explosive books.

Can Love Really Heal?
                Thank you so much for having me here on Vampires, Werewolves & Fairies, Oh My! today.  I’m really excited to share that OBSESSION, the third and final book in The Plus One Chronicles, is out.  This trilogy means a great deal to me as it explores the question of how love can transform a person’s life—if they have the courage or fortitude to embrace it and change.
In book one, THE PROPOSITION, Kat and Sloane discover they need each other.

                In book two, POSSESSION, they fall in love.

                But it’s book three, OBSESSION, where their love is tested.   Can Kat overcome her insecurities and fears enough to stand by Sloane and love him even if she gets her heart broken? Is she strong enough to do that now? And when Sloane comes face-to-face with his ultimate challenge, he must choose between the vengeance he’s trained relentlessly for and the love he has just recently found. Which will he choose and what will the cost be?

In this scene clip from OBSESSION, Sloane goes up to bed only to find Kat is missing. But there’s only  one place she’d go—Drake’s room. Drake is Sloane’s very ill mentor, and he and Kat have developed a strong friendship. Sloane goes to Drake’s room and this is the scene:

 “She fell asleep waiting for you.”

His heart swelled at the sight of her curled up next to Drake. Her long hair spilled over the side of the bed, and she had Drake’s hand clutched in hers. He moved closer, unable to stop staring at her. “Looks like the adrenaline crash caught up with her.”
“Went out like a light. She didn’t want to be by herself.”

He waited for the stab of guilt for leaving her alone, but it didn’t come. Kat had been giving him space much like he’d given her after they’d argued the other night. Instead she’d gone to Drake, finding her own way to get the comfort she needed. Or maybe she was comforting Drake. Probably some of both, judging by the content look in Drake’s eyes. “Am I going to have to fight you for my woman?”

His mouth curved. “Think you’re good enough?”

“To fight you? Any day. For Kat?” Sloane traced one of the pink streaks in her strands. “No.” How could someone like him be good enough for Kat?

“Be good enough, Sloane. A woman like Kat only comes once in a lifetime.”

He didn’t have an answer for that. Why did it feel like no matter what choice he made, there was going to be an unbearable consequence? If he let Foster live, that motherfucker would come after what Sloane loved. If he killed Foster, Kat would look at him like she’d looked at David tonight.

It was an impossible choice.

Sloane wants to be the man Kat thinks he is, but he doesn’t know if he can be.  Obsession is the most emotional, and in some ways, gut-wrenching of the three books. It’s in this book that both Kat and Sloane learn if they have the courage and fortitude to love and be loved, and to be the partner the other needs them to be.  If they can—then they will earn their happily ever after.
I loved writing these books, I believe Kat and Sloane (and Drake) are the most emotionally honest characters I’ve ever written.  I hope you’ll give the The Plus One Chronicles Trilogy a try, beginning with the first book, THE PROPOSITION.

                So what do you think, can love heal emotional wounds and help us cope with physical ones?


The Plus One Chronicles, Book 1

Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.

Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.

**Please note: Possession is book two of a three book series.

Even his sex partners are carefully negotiated plus-one arrangements, including his latest, the fiery bakery owner, Kat Thayne. But Sloane’s control is challenged when his mentor becomes seriously ill, and his need for Kat, his need to possess her at all costs, rivals only his single-minded goal of vengeance for the murder of his sister.
After surviving an attack six years ago, Kat Thayne escaped her fears in the protective world of her beloved bakery. Then Sloane Michaels storms into her life, making her feel beautiful, strong and sexy. Yet as Kat pushes her boundaries and uncovers a dangerous secret in her past, Sloane’s controlling side emerges.

Kat has grown into a fierce fighter, and the man who helped her get there is the very man who needs her strength now. But as the sizzling passion and hard-won love bind Kat and Sloane even tighter together, old secrets and lies explode around them. Danger threatens. And Kat soon realizes that she’s risking more than her heart to be with Sloane…she’s risking her very life. 

Shonna’s review:   Not only is the title of the last book in the Plus One Chronicles, OBSESSION, it is the best word to describe how I feel. Yes I have an obsession for this trilogy. From the moment I got my hands on this story I have been in love with everything about it. Always excited to get my hands on any work by Jennifer Lyon, this did not disappoint and gave me another story to add to my “all time favorites” list.  So well written, you can’t help but become absorbed in the characters  and feel their emotions as this magnetic tale unfolds. The fiery passion stirred with deception, painful loss, and vulnerability only scratch the surface trying to express the ride your emotions will take through the chapters. This isn’t even counting the brick wall Jennifer has waiting for  you to smack into with a tense finale twist you don’t see coming. Wow! A fantastic read that I really loved and only wish there was more.
