It is my turn to host the Capital Birthday Bash blog tour after it had been hosted by some awesome bloggers! This has been my most popular tour ever, pushing Ash Stone to the #3 most followed author on Goodreads and pushing this new release up from 1 millionth something on the Amazon rankings to 500K something in 2 weeks.

To show you what all the fuss is about, I have replaced the book blurb with my own version! The Adult version is on par with every major action/ adventure book out there, but it's only $5!!! What do you have to loose? Read on and try it? I guarantee you will LOVE something about this book!!!

For the real blurb visit Amazon 

The Heroine is Silka. She was a spoiled, pretty, little rich girl, who got everything handed to her. Even a high paying, cushy job right after school!  She gets her ass kicked and grows up! HECK YEAH! I LOVE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS!! 
She comes home after being away for 15 years and meets Taber. Sure, he is rich, good looking and leads a playboy lifestyle, but that is all part of his cover! WAIT TILL YOU SEE WHAT HE REALLY DOES! 
Lucelia is Silka's mother. She makes my mother-in-law look like a amateur!!  I WANT TO BE HER IF I NEED TO BECOME A MONSTER-IN-LAW ONE DAY!! 
Her father, Ted, is a cool guy!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE HIM!! 
While she is trying to find out who wants to kill her, she lands in trouble. Silka gets kidnapped and then Taber calls his Navy Seals buddies to help him find her. These guys are smart, funny and hot!! YUMMMMMY!
They find Silka, but she has gone over to the dark side and seeks blood and revenge after her friend got killed and she was tortured! It's Taber's job to get her out of the "Ice Queen bitch mode" and bring her back. MEN ALL OVER THE WORLD NEEDS THIS GUY'S MOJO!! Wow! 
What KILLED ME is that every time you think they are going to make love for the first time, or he will get her out of the darkness, something happens!! It's NON STOP ACTION!! The Navy Seal buddies, all sorts of bad things and  bad guys just keep coming back! IT'S AWESOME!!! 
The sex scenes in the Adult version are so long you can masturbate to them! THERE I SAID IT!! The nail biting action is so real you can't decide which finger you don't need to turn the page!
DID I MENTION IT IS EDUCATIONAL??? I will never look at Chocolate the same again, EVER!!!
This book made me go CHRISTIAN who???  Something -LESS What? Who's GONE??


This book is NOT a waste of YOUR money or time!

Speaking of time, I'd like to thank the awesome Capital Crew for their hard work and the effort they put into hosting the Capital Birthday Bash! 
Ladies and Gentlemen, Readers and followers, #ASMSG, please give it up for the PRO Bloggers and the talented & successful authors who supported little old me! 

Ash was born on Christmas Day 1974. So started a life of "Merry Christmas...And oh! Happy Birthday too." Before you say, "Aw Shame" and break out the tissues, please know that Ash is a Christmas Diva! There are always two presents ...or else! 

Reading and writing was a big part of Ash's life growing up. Being a typical rebel, rather than joining the cut-throat corporate world after graduating, Ash became a vegetarian hippie instead and went into the gardening/ nursery business. The irony of a vegetarian "plant lover" is still lost this award winning Horticulturist to this day. 

Ash traded comfortable hemp attire for corporate cotton later on and became the Purchasing Manager for McDonald's Asia, Pacific, Middle East and Africa region. These days neither the high flying corporate Exec or the vegetarian hippie exist, but rather the family orientated book lover with not so much spare time to read anymore. 

The eternal rebel loves to connect with fans (or "Stoneys!" as they are lovingly referred to). So, go on and stalk away, you rebel you!

Now that you know a little more about this book, go get it!!!!
But don't trust my word. Check out the review from Reader's Favorite BEFORE THE BOOK WAS RE-EDITED AND RE-LAUNCHED:
"Thirty-four year old Silka Fontein returns to her hometown after 15 years and reunites with her childhood friend, Taber Blake. Instant attraction immediately rises but both of them have secrets that are literally catching up to them. Determined to put an end to the imminent dangers, Silka and Taber team up and set out on a thrilling adventure.I loved the sophisticated-looking cover art and the subtle title; I really didn’t know what to expect of this novel when I began my reading. Both main characters, Silka Fointein and Taber Blake, are well-conceived protagonists, memorable and dynamic with sharp dialogues. As a fellow female, I admired Silka’s intelligence as well as her sense of vulnerability. Besides adventure, the story had the right amount of touch of thriller and romance as well. The action scenes are exceptionally well-portrayed and exciting; it is obvious that this particular element of the story was well-researched. From start to finish, it was a fun, fast-moving ride. On the other hand, the writing style is quite simple and does give out glimpses of the author’s raw attempt of a first book here and there. Even so, the great story line and the detailed descriptions of the surroundings, buildings and characters more than make up for the flaws. The Author is certainly on the right track with “Capital D” to build her own bright future in the writing industry. Thrill seeking readers definitely should give this novel a go."Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers’ Favorite


Title: Spark
Series: Spark #1
Author: Jennifer Ryder
Release Date: February 26, 2014


Not many people know that I, Eevie Lawson, have a problem. An addiction to romance novels. I eat them for breakfast. I hide it the best I can, but I need them to breathe. It’s how I cope.

I’ve had a swag of book boyfriends, but now that I’m free from the responsibility of caring for my three younger brothers, it’s time to find one in the flesh.

In real life, no girl meets their hero on page one, or even at the end of chapter one. I should know.

My journey is real. It’s not perfect, and it sure as hell isn’t easy—but the fight for something worthwhile never is.

ON SALE - December 16 through January 14

Title: Strike
Series: Spark #3
Author: Jennifer Ryder
Release Date: August 30, 2014


Fast. That’s how I like life, especially my two great joys: bikes and women. I’m committed to exclusively riding one, but not the other.

Until April.

A sexy-arse freelance photographer who’s travelled the world, and doesn’t do long walks on the beach or romantic candlelit dinners. She enjoys running with the bulls and food spicy enough to make your hair fall out. If that weren’t enough to get me hard, she rides a mean mother of a motorcycle.

I’ve gotta have a taste of this wildcat.

~Spencer (Jones)

I don’t do fast. Not anymore. I’ve got my career, my independence, and since I fled Spain to come back home I promised myself that I wouldn’t be put second—or third, for that matter—again.

Then I meet pretty boy Spencer.

He’s smooth, oozing the most potent pheromones probably known to modern science, and he’s making a move on me. One kiss was almost enough for my promise to dissolve.

My head says no—my treacherous body screams yes. I’m gonna make Spencer work for it. Make him fight for the chance to have me, because I know that deep down I’m worth it.
