**Spotlight & Review** Unspoken by Stephanie John

Title: Unspoken: A Short Story

Series: The Heal Me Series Book 1.5

Author: Stephanie John

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

My first rule of business–never mix it with pleasure. Ever.

One unexpected encounter with a new employee and that fundamental rule was forgotten.
With a single touch, Kara Collins obliterated the order of my disciplined life, forcing me to question everything I believed in. Intuition told me I needed her, ensuring I couldn't forget my second rule.
Trust my instincts. Always.

Unspoken takes us back to the first meeting between Nate Blake and Kara Collins in Salvation, retold from his POV.

This short, sexy tease (approx 5k words) provides insight into the mind of this passionate, powerful and utterly addictive man. You can discover more about Nate in the full-length novel Salvation (Heal Me Series Book 1), then prepare for the thrilling conclusion to Nate and Kara’s story in Book 2, scheduled mid-2016.

Unspoken can be read on its own, or as part of the Heal Me Series, either before or after Salvation.

Review by Kristie

Who hasn't read a story written from the heroine’s point of view, and wondered, "What was he thinking during all of this? What emotions did he experience?" 

 I think it is pretty safe to say we have all wondered how the hero, or male counterpart of the story, experienced the same situations differently.  Stephanie John answered those questions brilliantly in this short story, which encompasses the first meeting between Nate and Kara outside of his office, but tells it from Nate’s point of view. 

 As with Salvation, I was mesmerized by Stephanie’s descriptions and use of an obviously extensive vocabulary.  Reading Nate’s experience, and the electric connection he felt to Kara, made me fall even more in love with him. A great example of this is how he describes the first moment their hands touch, the first skin on skin contact when they shake hands:

“It was cool from her drink, but the blazing heat surging to every nerve ending of my body from her touch, set my soul on fire.”

I mean, really……swoon-worthy much???  I absolutely adored Salvation, and this short story follow up is no exception.  To be honest….I may have even loved it a teensy bit more.  Nate is absolutely irresistible, and hearing his inner monologue makes him even more so.

“Fuck me if she wasn’t ogling my ass and blushing like hell from being caught doing so.”

I can’t express how much enjoyment I got out of this book.  It was truly intoxicating and incredibly sexy to hear the same words from Salvation be followed by Nate’s thoughts and feelings.

“You don’t work for me. Well, you’re not directly beneath me.  Which is unfortunate…”  Beneath, on top, on all fucking fours in front of me - we could try them all so long as we tried them together.”

I was ready for the second book in this series before I even set my sights on this one, but after reading this, I think Ms. John needs to hurry up and get me the next installment….I need me some more Nate Blake!  

Title:  Salvation

Author:  Stephanie John

Genre:  Adult Contemporary Erotic Romance

Series:  Heal Me Series, Book 1

Formats:  Available on Amazon in ebook, paperback and free on Kindle Unlimited

A chance meeting turned my world inside out.

Intelligent, sexy, and rich. With a dash of roguish charm and a cocksure smile, Nathan Blake is the ultimate fantasy. He can have any woman he wants with only a glance.
And he wants me.

My past has left me broken and humiliated, wary of men like him. I cut myself off from the pain, moving thousands of miles away to escape every reminder, determined to start anew.
I’ve been second best before. It isn't happening again.

One kiss and I'm caught under his spell, drawn to him with every breath I take.
I can't resist.

The passion that explodes between us becomes an intense connection neither of us thought we’d share.

Or need.

The suffering inside me reflects his – a pain I know he feels, but can’t bring himself to reveal.
I have no idea his love can heal me – that mine can heal him…
…if only I can let down my guard for him and trust.

Salvation is a captivating story of finding, fighting and finally giving in to a love that is clearly meant to be. This is no ordinary billionaire romance - it is a breathtakingly sexy, tenderly erotic story with twists and turns that will leave you wanting more.

Warning: This work of fiction is intended for mature audiences over the age of 18 due to the sexual content and explicit language used throughout. Parental/reader discretion is advised.

Please note that even though this book is set in the USA, it is written from the POV of the female lead who is English, therefore British English vocabulary and spelling has been used.

What reviewers are saying about Salvation

“The chemistry in this book is OFF THE CHARTS and the writing is so well done you CANNOT help but connect to these characters and hope you can one day pull that delicious Nate Blake right off the pages and into your world!!” ~ Bitches Heart Books

 “Add me to the long list of readers who loved this book!  Stephanie John’s writing has such a beautiful flow with much heart and depth.  Nate is the ultimate book boyfriend from being pure eye candy with a dirty mouth to the way he tenderly nurtures Kara.  Their longing for one another was off the charts and the physical exchange of emotions without words was so strong.  A true love story that doesn't let go.  DON’T MISS IT!” ~ Luv My Books

 “I’m in withdrawal I want more Nate!  5 stars all the way! I was hooked from the start.  When these two hook up it’s like the fourth of July!  Salvation is a MUST READ.” ~ 2 Girls, A Book & a Glass of Wine

 Stephanie John has a genuine talent for bringing stories and characters to life and taking the reader along on an effortless ride to pure pleasure. And when I say pure pleasure - your heart will pound as their love heats up. One particular scene at the beach house will rank among the most erotic and powerful expressions of love that I have ever read. This book deserves more than five stars - it deserves a heaven full of them - because that is where you'll think you've been when you've finished Salvation. I can't wait for the next chapter ... and the next ... and the next. Don't deny yourself one of the truly outstanding contemporary romances of 2015.” ~ Passionate Reads

“A beautifully written contemporary erotic romance.  Plenty of great banter between the characters, plenty of story to get your teeth into, and plenty of sex to curl your toes.” ~ Sizzling Pages Romance 

Most days, you’ll find Stephanie John on a yacht, wearing a very skimpy bikini, drinking champagne, eating chocolate and never gaining weight. When she isn't asleep and dreaming, in real life you’re more likely to find her at the school gates, wearing whatever she dragged on that morning, drinking copious amounts of coffee.  She still eats chocolate, though — everyone has their vices, right? Somehow, amidst the chaos of full-time mummy duties, she manages to write.  Contemporary romance has always been her favourite genre to read for as long as she can remember (age-appropriate, of course).

Never in a million years did it occur to her to write one of her own.  Now, she couldn't imagine doing anything else.
