Change With Me By Kristen Proby - (BLOG TOUR) (SOCIAL BUTTERFLY PR)


Change with Me, an all new and stunning Hollywood romance filled with white-hot chemistry from New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby and 1,001 Dark Nights, is available now!

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes an all new novella set in her beloved With Me In Seattle series…

Zane Cooper. Hollywood royalty. Fourth generation superstar. He knows what it is to be one of the biggest celebrities in the world. And how lonely that title truly is. When scandal hits, his career hangs in the balance, and Zane flees LA for Seattle, laying low with his newly married best friend. Things will eventually blow over, and he’ll have his life back soon enough.

Aubrey Stansfield arrives in Seattle excited to start a new job, and eager to settle into her new home. But when she arrives at her rental, Aubrey’s sure she’s imagining things because the uber sexy Zane Cooper is unpacking in her new bedroom. Thanks to a rental snafu, and unwilling to relocate on such short notice, Aubrey and Zane are thrust into being roommates.

Aubrey is about as average as a woman gets, so what could the megastar possibly see in her? She tells herself she’s not interested, despite their undeniable chemistry. But Zane is very persuasive, and soon Aubrey finds herself playing house with the most recognized man on the planet. Deep down, she knows it’s all a fantasy. He’ll head back to his posh lifestyle soon and leave her behind. No way could she fall in love with him.

But love doesn’t always follow the rules…

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Sneak Peek!

“Who are you?”

My heart jumps, and my stomach jolts as I spin and see a man walk out of the master bath. He’s tall. He’s frowning.

And he looks familiar.

“The question is, who are you?” Why did I leave my purse—and my mace—in the kitchen?

“You’re in my condo,” he retorts.

“No, you’re in my condo,” I reply and cross my arms over my chest, trying to look mean. “This is two-oh-three A. Mine. If you’re going to murder-death-kill me, I’m going to ask you to take today off and do it to someone else because I’ve had a long drive, and I need to get ready for my new job. Now, see yourself out.”

Is that me, sounding all calm and collected?

I’m never this calm. Or collected.

Seattle is clearly good for me.

“I hate to burst your bubble,” the stranger replies, “but I’m not leaving. I leased this place, and I’m moving in today.”

“But.” I frown. “I leased this place. And I’m moving in today.”

I stomp out of the bedroom and head straight for the kitchen, opening my bag to retrieve my phone.

I also set my mace on the counter, just in case.

“I can show you the lease.”

“Same,” he replies. “Landlord fucked up.”

I blink, open my mouth, then close it again.

“What’s in here?” He opens my pink box and surveys the goods. “These cake donuts are my weakness.”

Before my eyes, he grabs one and takes a big bite.

“So now you’re stealing my house and my food?”

“I didn’t steal anything,” he says with a full mouth. “Well, except the donut.”

“You’re going to have to move,” I inform him. “I already paid for the first month and the security deposit.”

“I paid six months in advance,” he says, swallows, and then smiles. Suddenly, I know exactly where I’ve seen him before.

This is Zane Cooper. The actor. The celebrity.

He must see the recognition in my eyes because his go ice-cold.

“I can’t afford to find a new place,” I inform him. “It took me a month to find this one. And it’s perfect for me. It’s less than six blocks from the school I’ll be teaching at, so I can walk every day. And it’s furnished. Plus, it’s close to the water.”

“Definitely perfect,” he agrees.

“Oh my God, why are you here?” I demand and prop my hands on my hips. “You’re a gazillionaire. You could literally go anywhere. Why do you want my condo?”

“I’m not a gazillionaire,” he says and crosses his arms over his chest. “I’m more of a trazillionaire.”

“Pretty sure that’s the same thing. So, go build your own building and live in it.”

“Nah.” He picks a piece of donut out of his teeth and shakes his head slowly. “I don’t think I will. I’ll stay here.”

I blink at him and start to feel helpless. My savings is in this place. I don’t have enough left to rent anything else.

And I don’t have time. I start work in just three days.

Part of me wants to cry, but I’ll be damned if I let this hoity-toity movie star see me upset.

So, I do the only thing I can think of.

I prop my fist on the opposite hand in a challenge of rock, paper, scissors.

“What are you doing?” he asks, raising one sexy eyebrow.

“The adult thing,” I reply primly. “Best out of three wins?”

He blinks twice, looks from my hands to my face and back again, then shrugs one muscular shoulder and assumes the position.

“Fine,” he says. “I’m going to win—wait. What’s your name?”

“Aubrey,” I say and lick my lips. “Aubrey Stansfield. And you’re Wyatt Earp.”

His lips twitch into a half-smile. “I only played him on TV.”

I chuckle and say, “Ready?”

“Go,” he says, and we thump our fists three times.

I land on scissors.

He fists for rock.

Damn it.

“Let’s go again,” Zane says.

One. Two. Three.

I land on paper.

He chooses rock again.

I grin, and his blue eyes smile back.

There’s a reason Zane Cooper is the hottest sex symbol in the world. Good God, I might combust just from standing next to him.

All the more reason to get him out of my house.

“Last one,” I say. “Go.”

One. Two. Three.

I land on paper again, assuming Zane only knows how to use rock.

But he forms scissors.

I breathe deeply and reach for my last damn donut.

“That’s mine,” he says, and I whirl on him.

“This is mine,” I reply hotly. “I stood in a bloody line in Portland for it, just this morning. I drove all the way here from Arizona. I’m tired. I’m a little scared. And now I have you in my house, and you won’t leave. Even better than that, you just stole it out from under me.”

“I won it,” he reminds me. “Fair and square. The donut, that is.”

I stop and frown at him. “Huh?”

“I won the donut. In the rock-paper-scissors game.”

“I was playing for the condo, Wyatt.”

He barks out a laugh. “Not me. I want that donut.”

 

About Kristen Proby

Kristen was born and raised in a small resort town in her beloved Montana. In her mid-twenties, she decided to stretch her wings and move to the Pacific Northwest, where she made her home for more than a dozen years.

During that time, Kristen wrote many romance novels and joined organizations such as RWA and other small writing groups. She spent countless hours in workshops, and more mornings than she can count up before the dawn so she could write before going to work. She submitted many manuscripts to agents and editors alike, but was always told no. In the summer of 2012, the self-publishing scene was new and thriving, and Kristen had one goal: to publish just one book. It was something she longed to cross off of her bucket list.

Not only did she publish one book, she’s since published close to thirty titles, many of which have hit the USA Today, New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestsellers lists. She continues to self publish, best known for her With Me In Seattle and Boudreaux series, and is also proud to work with William Morrow, a division of HarperCollins, with the Fusion Series.

Kristen and her husband, John, make their home in her hometown of Whitefish, Montana with their two pugs and two cats.

Title: Hunter’s Hope

Author: Alyssa Day

About Hunter’s Hope:

Hunter Evans risked his life again and again as a firefighter until the night he died saving a child…only to be reborn as a vampire. Now the man who lived his life as the quintessential “nice guy” must find a way to conquer the deadly urges that threaten to turn him feral. When his own actions put a beautiful woman in danger, he vows to protect her…even from himself.

Alice Darlington has a secret of her own: she sees ghosts. She thought she’d done a good job of keeping it under wraps—until now. A terrible threat from her past is hunting her down in order to use her power for dark purposes. Now she’s on the run and doesn’t know who to trust or where to go.

When Hunter and Alice team up to battle the dangers coming at them from all sides, they’re forced to rely on each other. But Hunter doesn’t know how long he can keep the beast inside him away from the woman it craves…

Get Your Copy!



Exclusive Excerpt:

When Alice rounded the back of the van, it was to discover that Marigold was no longer in her crate.

Or even in the van.

Instead, she was being held in the muscular arms of the man—ghost—from the hotel.

And the normally good-natured raccoon was hissing.

Alice froze and then forced herself forward. “What are you doing? Give her to me.”

He flashed a wickedly sensual smile that caused a ripple of sensation to wash through her, carrying an unexpected heat to every nerve ending in her body. She suddenly felt too hot, too breathless, too…alive.

“She clearly would prefer to be held by you,” he said easily. “I can’t say that I blame her.”

His blue eyes gleamed, glowing in the reflected brightness of the lantern lights affixed on either side of her front door. When he stepped toward her, she automatically took a step back. This man—this ghost—most definitely didn’t belong in her yard, holding her raccoon. He was… too much.

Too tall, too big, too intense, too gorgeous.

Her breath gave a funny little hitch in her throat.

He was beautiful.

Maybe her age? Late twenties? Or early thirties? Tall; he was easily six feet, maybe a couple of inches more. Broad shoulders angled down to a slim waist with no softness showing anywhere. And he had amazing bone structure. She suddenly wanted to dig out the paints she’d tried out a few times when she was enjoying her new freedom and try to capture the strength in his jaw, the sharpness of his high cheekbones, and the glow in his eyes. His face held a slight beard, as though he hadn’t shaved in the days before he’d died, and those long, dark lashes shaded not just his incredible eyes but the shadows beneath them. His dark hair was swept back from his forehead, as if he’d impatiently shoved it out of his way with one of the large, capable hands that currently held an armful of unhappy raccoon.

Marigold hissed again, snapping Alice out of her trance, and she edged forward, took the angry creature, and stumbled back and away from her unexpected visitor. She swallowed, hard, and tried to regain control of the situation.

The only way to deal with ghosts was to take the reins at the very beginning of each encounter. She thought she’d done this at the hotel, but she’d been caught off guard by the man’s—the ghost’s—aliveness. She’d encountered ghosts who could manipulate objects before, of course, but nothing like this.

“Listen. I—” The amusement in his gaze threw her off, and she forgot what she’d been about to say. So, she asked a basic question to give herself time to regroup. “What is your name? I can’t keep thinking of you as ‘that man’ or ‘that ghost.’”

His devilish smile flashed again. “I like that you keep thinking of me.”

My Review:

Mm, victorian england. After having lived in the world of Mr and Miss Elizabeth Bennett, I grew fond of living in the victorian era setting completely too.

And this book did not manage to disappoint me.

Both stories have strong heroines and even more dashing heroes, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading about.

The romance was swoonworthy, emotions were flying, and the witty banter kept on striking each time it was said.

Truly, they were brilliant novels, I wish I didn't have to let go of, but sadly I had to.

Truly, I enjoyed them, and I hope to read more by both authors.

4 stars.

My Review:

I loved everything Bren and Sofia had to offer to me, in their romance. The swoon, the emotion, the chemistry, just the way they were, witty dialogues, some educational lessons regarding their job.

I loved hanging around them and being in their world. Having had my own dream of being a rockstar as a child, it felt like I was living my dream through these two and tackling issues that lead to such a high profile life.

Sofia's life is not easy so, being in a male-dominated business world trying to prove her own worth and being burned for it before. It took everything in me not to become so jealous of her, instead being left in awe of how much of a wonderful brilliant, and amazing and caring woman she was, despite her insecurities. It made her real and I loved it.

Same goes for Bren. Had he not entered my life, I don't think I would have ever learned that there are good guys with bad boy demeanours who play hard but love hard too, sincerely. And I got my escape in his rock music too, which was brilliant.

An amazing heart felt romance about two people from opposite worlds, learning to love again with brilliant writing, swooning romance, and plenty of depth that will leave you searing with need for another shot of the series itself.

5 stars.

My Review:

Like that popular phrase, there's two sides to a coin (I can't believe they made an actual obvious fact, a saying too...but eh), this story is no different to showing two sides of human personalities too.

Grace and Cameron lead ordinary, boring almost routine lives with a picket fence, dogs and one of each gender children. But they aren't close, so they decide to go on a rich people vacation to sort things out.

Meanwhile Cameron's assistant comes on board, with secrets threatening to ruin everything Grace has ever known and loved dear.

Chantelle was far more than her smile suggested, and can I say I loved her devious yet secretive and manipulating nature shown throughout the novel? Yes, I know, morally, you shouldn't give a high fiving tops to a villain, but she just had something I couldn't resist...so, there.

But Grace was no dumb expensive man's wife, either. Plenty of sherlock holmes detective skills play out with Grace trying to sniff out what exactly is her marriage even, and could it be a sham too, with now Chantelle arriving in tow too.

I loved the overall suspense, tension, wicked behaviour and intellectual torture that was left behind by both female leads (yes, Cameron is excluded because this was never completely about him).

I ate up the whole thing in a day, and swear I craved more by Andrews by the time I was done moaning over my loss of having finished the book too quick.

A suspenseful, tension-filled, unforgettable novel with twists giving whiplash all the way, an ending you won't see coming your way.

4 stars.
