About The Taste of Her Words:

Andrea was my first taste of love.

She was there throughout my childhood and into adulthood. Her words were a secret I wasn’t supposed to know. Truths and pain bled onto papers that shredded my innocence and carved a hole in my heart only she could fill.

Her words were my first kiss. They were the uneven breaths I took when I saw her, and my hands between her thighs inside the dreams she haunted. She was my best friend’s older sister and, even though she didn’t know it yet, she was the pen that would ink our destiny into the stars.

Dean tempted me to cross a line I never thought I would.

It had been so long since someone looked at me the way he did. Five years since his starry gaze caressed my words and I ran from a kiss I couldn’t shake. He was everything I should stay away from, but how could I resist the beautifully broken man whose touch stoked a fire within my soul?

Dean was the missing words to my fairy tale. The parchment I could safely put my most intimate thoughts to. But when secrets from the past catch up with us, how could our perfectly plotted ending survive?

Looking at the stubble along his jaw, his gaze hiding experience and heartache, and the full head of dark hair he’d grown out, I realized I was so utterly and completely wrong.

Those eyes—the color of the leaves on a sugar maple just before they were about to turn for fall—green with floating specks of gold.

It was like flashes of lightning… the intensity in which the memories crashed over me.

The way his lips felt—demanding and inviting. The way his hands slid deliciously slow under my shirt, his touch warm and rough. The way his tongue moved with mine, swirling and tasting, taking everything I’d almost given to him. His eyes had been fire. His mouth, the gate to heaven.

Taste my sin,

Set fire to my soul.

“Andrea, did you hear me, dear?” Mother said from the end of the table. From right next to Dean. His eyes were galvanizing. Somehow, they kept finding their way to my direction. Every single time, I felt like I was caught under a heat lamp.

I wished he’d stop. It was like his eyes were yelling, announcing to the room that he’d tasted me and he wanted more. I already felt my face flushing to shades I’d never reached when he finally let go of my gaze and directed his attention back to my mother… who was staring at me like I’d lost my mind.

“Andrea,” Mother barked again.

“Hmm?” I rushed out, wishing I could excuse myself.

Mother laughed, and then looked to Dean, shaking her head as if she were dealing with a child. “I said…” she drawled in her best southern accent, “our boys seem to have grown into handsome men overnight. Wouldn’t you agree?”

She batted her long, thick lashes at me.

Handsome men, I thought as a storm of words washed over me.

Kiss the forgotten parts of me.

Clear the cobwebs of time.

Charlie tugged on my arm as my tongue twisted in knots. Maybe it was a coping mechanism—a way to keep from saying something I knew I’d regret. Everyone stared at me… waiting for me to say something.

Dean was staring at me.

The intensity in his gaze alone was enough to make my mouth go dry.

“Yes. They sure are,” I agreed, feeling like I’d found a way to harness solar energy in my cheeks.

Blog Tour + EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY- WHEN TWO HEARTS COLLIDE by Sonya Loveday and Candace Knoebel

When Two Hearts Collide

by Sonya Loveday and Candace Knoebel
A Game of Hearts Novel
Publication Date: March 23, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Purchase: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Charlie Williams’ view on relationships is simple—one night, no strings, move on.

But when the opportunity to see a girl from his past comes up, Charlie finds himself breaking all his own rules. Ever since the night he’d turned her away, Charlie hasn’t been able to get Charlotte off his mind. A break from his pub for a vacation across the pond should be enough to cure him of his curiosity and get her out of his system. At least, he hopes…

Charlotte Mackay channels love through coffee.

Running her fandom-themed store and specialty coffee bar keeps her nerdy heart busy after one too many relationship disappointments.

Until the man she can’t manage to forget calls.

Charlie’s coming to The Hamptons for a two-week vacation. She’s going to be his host—nothing more. She’d fallen under the spell of his bedroom eyes and roguish charm once before, and it nearly wrecked her. Charlotte can’t risk the same mistake twice.

But love knows no boundaries when two hearts collide.


Every so often, she’d look over at me, almost as if checking to see if I was still there, and the smile she wore would waver slightly. A look I couldn’t quite put my finger on… sadness maybe… would fill her eyes, and I realized, at that moment, I made her nervous. Uncomfortable even, because we both knew there was something between us, and all I had to do was put a little more charm on her, and she’d cave.

I felt like a complete ass.

She was a comet, brightly lit, that would streak across my life’s sky only a handful of times. I wasn’t meant to hold a comet. I was only meant to admire her. To watch her longingly from a distance and dream about the next time I’d be gobsmacked.

Because that was what comets did. They wowed you. Dazzled you. Left you.

I didn’t get left. I left. It was easier that way. Less sloppy. No feelings involved. It was simple pleasure and nothing more.

Nothing would be simple with Charlotte. Nothing.

I needed to keep reminding myself of that before I went and broke all of my own rules.

~Charlie Williams
