KE Osborne Interview & giveaway

Book Description:

This book is for mature audiences 18+ It contains explicit language and sexual content.

Jenifer Taylor is content with her life, dull and boring as it is. Being absent from the dating scene means she doesn’t have to deal with the major trust issues she has with men that stem from a controlling and aggressive ex-boyfriend and an absentee father. She’s happy being alone, sharing her life with her friends and family.

When Jeni starts a typical day in the big city of Mornington Vale, California, it turns from bad to worse when she’s involved in a chain collision on her way to work.

Her world changes forever that day because she meets Aiden O’Connell, the billionaire son of Alistair O’Connell, who owns Mornington Vale’s largest financial corporation. Aiden is an up-and-coming young businessman who's ready to take on the vice presidency of his father’s company. He is the good son, and it’s imperative to Alistair that Aiden succeed and follow in his footsteps. Life for Aiden involves working hard and not much else.

After the accident, however, Aiden’s world changes as well. He finds Jeni irresistible and instantly pursues her. With some coaxing, she eventually agrees to a date, and the attraction is mutual.

Jeni finds love quickly with Aiden, but trusting him is another issue. When to trust is tested in many different ways but comes to a head when Aiden is investigated for a serious crime. As her trust issues spark, she is forced to go through a journey of self-discovery.

She must decide once and for all whether she trusts the man she loves when she’s asked the ultimate question: "Do you trust me?"

This is book one in a series of three. Book two "Love Me?" was released on November 18th, 2013.


Short Excerpt Trust Me?

I turn to face him; he puts his other arm around me. We are in the same position as before when the last kiss attempt failed. My arms are tight around his neck, his arms around my waist. I look down. He lifts up my chin so I’m lost in his gaze. His hand goes back to my waist. He swallows; I think he’s as nervous as I am. He tilts his head and leans in … I back away quickly.

"What’s wrong?" he asks, looking hurt.

"Oh, no, it’s not you. I think … I might have garlic breath."

He laughs and pulls me back to him. "So do I." He pulls me in tighter, and before I know what’s happening, his lips are on mine. I give in and surrender to him completely.

This feels like one of my fantasies, only way, way better. He holds me tight as one hand moves from my waist to caress my cheek, kissing me softly but sensually. My hands move to the back of his head, and I grab a lock of hair in each hand. He moves our bodies so that I’m against the railing at the edge of the deck. He moves his hand from my waist to hold the rail as I still grasp his hair. The kissing becomes feverishly passionate; his tongue against mine as they intertwine with each other. Our breathing becomes faster and erratic. Our kissing becomes more intimate. We are in perfect sync with each other. I pull him closer to me, our whole bodies touching. My heart is pounding fast and hard. His hand moves from my face to the back of my head, pulling me tight. He moves my hair from the side of my neck, breaks our kiss and kisses my neck slowly and seductively. I sigh and breathe in a stuttering motion. I open my eyes to see the waitress standing there, gawking at us. I stiffen as I see her. He pulls back and looks at me. With my eyes, I gesture toward the waitress. He turns, looks, and lets out a little huff. He leans in towards me.

"Now that’s a first kiss," he whispers as he grabs my hand and leads me over to the table. I can’t help but smile.



Love Me?

The Trust Me? Trilogy

Book 2

Book Description:

This book is for mature audiences 18+ It contains explicit language and sexual content.

In the first book of The Trust Me? Trilogy, Jeni Taylor finds the love of her life, but as the second book begins, she finds herself lost without Aiden O’Connell, who’s been wrongly convicted of embezzlement charges and incarcerated. She must find the strength within to help prove he’s innocent while dealing with other issues. Aiden’s father, Alistair, still taunts her, making life between Jeni and Aiden more difficult, and an unexpected visitor enters their lives, creating havoc and turning it upside down. Jeni’s trust issues return in a major way after an incident leaves her fragile and broken. Aiden and Jeni find themselves going through more trials and tribulations than ever before in this second installment of the Trust Me? Trilogy. In the end, Jeni will be asked the ultimate question: Do you still love me?

Short Excerpt Love Me?

My nerves start to get the better of me, I start to feel nauseous; those darn pesky butterflies attack again. I’m not sure why I’m nervous, whether it’s the shoes making me unstable or whether it’s the memory of our first date, our first touch, or our first kiss that’s making me bashful.
I turn the corner to see him standing there with a bunch of red roses, in the suit that he changed into earlier, this time with a baby pink tie on. Behind him is that gorgeous waterfall cascading down the cliff with the lush greenery surrounding us. As I take a step closer, I hear music playing. "Thank You for Loving Me" by Bon Jovi. It’s our song. I feel my eyes welling up as all the emotion and love I feel for this man is becoming too much to bear.
His smile is beaming from ear to ear when I approach. Finally I reach him. He holds out his hand for me to take. I take it, and he pulls me into a tight embrace.
"This is perfect," I whisper.
"Perfection for perfection, my love." He kisses my cheek, and places the bouquet of flowers on the railing.

1. What is one of your favorite Myths/legends to write about?
My genre is not about myths or legends, but I guess some of my favorites would be vampires, witches and werewolves.  I kinda like aliens too; I’m a bit of a Trekkie at heart, especially now that Chris Pine plays Captain Kirk.

2. If you could live back in time, what time period would you choose and why?
I don’t really think much about the past, I mainly would love to go to the future.  I’m a bit of a Sci-Fi nut, and would love to see flying cars and teleportation devices etc.  All a bit of pipe dream I know, but still it would be cool.

3. Have you ever come across a song that might fit the theme of one of your books?
Yes, when writing Trust Me? The Trust Me? Trilogy I couldn't get Give Me Love by Ed Sheeran out of my head. In the final scenes of the book, a particular section of the song kept playing in my head over and over, which gave me inspiration for the final scenes.

4. Do you remember what you felt when you had your first kiss?
About all I can remember is the name of the guy who gave me my first kiss and that it was in the car park of the drama centre at school.  

5. What was the most creative pick up line you've ever used on someone or someone used on you?
I’ve never used a pick up line but the funniest one used on me was “hi, I’m …….. and I’ve got a small dick and I’m bad in bed, will you go out with me”.  It worked; we were together for two years.

6. When writing do you have a playlist of music you like to listen to? What are a couple songs on it?
Actually when I am writing I need complete silence, I cannot even have the TV on in another room as its too distracting.  However, I do have a gigantic play list on my iPod and a couple of songs are Give Me Love by Ed Sheeran and Armageddon by Guy Sebastien.

7. What do you do when you think nobody is watching?
I have this ritual when I am on the toilet of slapping my thighs and playing a tune on them. Yes that’s right, I am a drummer and I’m weird.

8. What was your favorite childhood book?
CS Lewis – The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

9. What is your favorite addition to chocolate?
Coffee – I love a good mocha.

10. What does your husband/significant other say about your writing erotic stories? What about your family and/or do they read your books?
I don’t have a significant other at the moment.  My family are very supportive of my writing romance novels and yes, my mum actually edits them. So she would say that she reads it over, and over, and over and over.  

11. Besides your own, what is one of your favorite series to keep up with?
The Thoughtless Series by SC Stephens is my favourite series of all time.  I love her writing and the emotion that I felt when reading it.

12. What do you think you would be doing if you weren't writing?
Complaining about being a receptionist or something lol, I’d rather be writing..

13. Do you have any hobbies or activities you enjoy doing?
I enjoy going to dog shows and show dog training, reading in my spare time and going to the movies with friends.

14. What is something you do to de-stress?
Music with a capital M. Whenever I feel stressed I put in my earphones, turn it up and listen to my favourite songs.

15. We all know about muses...what do you think inspires you to allow your creative juices flowing?
Basically my creative juices flow from realistic dreams that I seem to have about the storylines of my books.  Each book has resulted from a dream that I had, and from that I have created the story around it.

10 Fun Facts (things the fans don't know)
I wear odd socks on purpose.
I love frogs and have four green trees frogs and a tattoo of a frog.
I play the drums and so does my mum and grandpa.
My bedroom is pink.
