ABOUT THE DATE: Release Date May 28, 2013

Savagely sexy billionaire Sloane Michaels ruthlessly controls his life and everything in it. 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. Worried that Sloane will possess her mind, body and soul, Kat fights to keep her hard won independence. But just as Sloane demands her complete surrender, she discovers he has a dark side that could destroy them both.

•••••••••••••••••

REVIEW: POSSESSION is the second installment in Jennifer Lyon’s contemporary romantic/erotic Plus One Chronicles series. Possession continues the story three days after The Proposition where Sloane proposes more than a plus-one relationship with Kat-he wants to help her overcome her fear and anxiety following an attack more than six years ago, that has left her with permanent injuries and PTSD. Trying to keep their relationship at the Plus One stage is difficult when the heart falls fast and hard.

Sloane Michaels is an ex-UFC fighter with a past haunted by the murder of his sister and the reality of his best friend’s illness. Hoping to keep his past a secret, Sloane fails miserably when he willingly reveals everything to Kat. Kat neither manipulates nor threatens Sloane, but her need to help and listen, tug at Sloane’s heart and soul. Their Plus One relationship becomes something more.

Throughout the series, Kat must face the trauma and truth about the attack that left her near death and without any memory of that time. Sloane’s ability to help her with the struggle will slowly reveal that it was more than a random attack, but one that was more personal than she could have imagined.

Once again, Jennifer Lyon pulls the reader into a storyline that will pique your curiosity and break your heart. The relationship between Kat and Sloane is hot, sexy and crossing the imaginary boundary of plus one into something more-something more like love?

Sloane is a man after my own heart-he is my new book boyfriend. Yes, I admit it. This is part of my 12 step program admitting he is my new fantasy lover. He is every woman’s dream; very sexy, very handsome and a protector above all else. He is a modern day warrior out to avenge his sister’s death; and he is a man falling in love with the woman who refuses to give up or give in. We learn more about Sloane’s history-his family and his friendships and, the pain and guilt that makes the man what he is today- and we are introduced to a few of his closest friends.

The Plus One Chronicles is an amazing new series by Jennifer Lyon. There is romance and love; betrayal and hate; heartbreak and sorrow. Combine it all with the talented writing of Jennifer Lyon and you have another wonderful series that is sure to top your favorite reads.  The characters are real; you can feel their emotions and sympathize with their struggles.  And if you haven’t met Sloane, let me introduce you to him in The Proposition -book one!

5 Ways to Tame a UFC Fighter Hero

the Plus One Chronicles

Thank you so much for having me here today! Sloane is an ex-UFC fighter and one of my all-time favorite heroes to write about. Once he meets Kat in book one of The Plus One Chronicles, THE PROPOSITION, the goal that has driven him for over a decade—revenge—becomes entangled with his increasing need for her. Sloane is getting caught in the ever tightening trap of having to choose between the vengeance he’s sworn and the woman he craves.

So now that you have a little background, I’d like to share with you 5 ways Kat is “taming” the UFC Fighter.

1) Sloane is seriously hot and extremely rich, so women fall all over him to do whatever he wants. All except for Kat. She makes it clear to Sloane that she will stand up to him:

Time to establish her boundaries. “Sloane?”

He looked down at her. “Yeah?”

“Thank you. I’ll see the doctor.” She was grateful. Truly.
He nodded.

Then she added, “Now move your arm and get out of my space.”

2) When he makes you a proposition, turn him down. Make him work for it. In The Proposition, Sloane wants Kat to be his plus-one and in his bed. She tells him no. A fighter can’t resist a challenge:

She kept her gaze on the scrupulously clean table beneath her hands. “You’re not used to being told no, are you?”

“I’ve grown accustomed to getting what I want.”

She heard him move nearer. Felt the fine hairs on her neck twitch. She knew he was close behind her, yet he didn’t touch her. Instead, he laid a thick, cream-colored business card on the table between her hands. SLAM Inc. Sloane Michaels, CEO was blazed across it. All the usual information. His hand vanished.

“You already have my private cell number in your phone. Here’s the rest of my contact info.”

His voice was so close to her back, she shivered. “Why are you pursuing me?”

“Because I want you.”

3) Put lavender steaks in your hair. Here’s a clip from POSSESSION of Sloane telling Kat what he noticed first about her:

“You hid. Withdrawing to protect yourself. When I first saw you, you were tucked behind a column.”

“Then why did you see me?” All those polished women in pretty gowns and he’d honed in on her. It hadn’t made sense.

“The pink streaks in your hair.”

“Lavender.”

His full lips twitched. “Whatever, baby, those streaks scream, Look at me. This is who I am and if you don’t like it…

4) Make lemon cupcakes. Sloane loves Kat’s lemon cupcakes!

“Careful there, champ, I know your weakness.”

He lifted an eyebrow. “What’s that?”

“Lemon cupcakes. I’m pretty sure I could get you to beg for a lemon cupcake.” Okay, she might be pushing her luck.

“Cheater.” Wrapping his hand in her hair, he leaned in. “You know I’d do anything for your lemon cupcakes.”

5) Make him burn:

“Not until I kiss you.” He brushed his mouth over hers, kissing his way to her ear. “And you burn for me like I’ve been burning for you. For three f*cking days.” And nights. Even while he trained, something that had been unheard of before Kat.

Kat and Sloane’s relationship begins in The Proposition, but in Possession, it burns hotter and grows deeper. I hope you’ll give The Proposition and Possession a try! Sloane and Kat get their happily-ever-after in the final, explosive book Obsession.
