My first crush. My first heartbreak. My brother’s best friend.

The butterflies in my stomach turned into full blown eagles the second our lips touched. A kiss under the stars that changed our relationship forever.

After a lifetime of wishing, I stared up into Ford’s eyes with his fingers caressing my cheek and my heart racing.

The evening ended with my heart bleeding on the ballroom floor.

He destroyed my heart two years ago…but now he wants back in my life.

This time I won’t fall under his spell. I’ll resist his sexy, scruffy beard, and panty-melting smirk.

I thought I was over him. Hell, I fully planned to wave to him through my rearview mirror…but with one text, in the middle of the night, I know I’m in over my head.

Ford: I need you.

Release Blitz: ‘The Perfect First’ by Maya Hughes


Title: The Perfect First

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Najla Qamber, Qamber Designs

Release Date: April 25, 2019

 

“How long do you last in bed?” Those were her first words to me, swiftly followed up with, “And how big would you say you are?”

Cue the record scratching, what?!

Persephone Alexander. Math genius. Lover of blazers. The only girl I know who can make Heidi braids look sexy as hell. And she’s on a mission. Lose her virginity by the end of the semester.

I walked in on her interview session for potential candidates (who even does that?) and saw straight through her brave front. She’s got a list of Firsts to accomplish like she’s only got months to live. I’ve decided to be her guide for all her firsts except one. Someone’s got to keep her out of trouble. I have one rule, no sex. We even shook on it.

I’ll help her find the right guy for the job. Someone like her doesn’t need someone like me and my massive…baggage for her first time.

Drinking at a bar. Check.

Partying all night. Double check.

Skinny dipping. Triple check.

She’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met. The walls I’d put up around my heart are slowly crumbling with each touch that sets fire to my soul.

I’m the first to bend the rules. One electrifying kiss changes everything and suddenly I don’t want to be her first, I want to be her only. But her plan was written before I came onto the scene and now I’m determined to get her to re-write her future with me.

Release Blitz: ‘Ruthless King’ by Maya Hughes


Title: Ruthless King

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Najla Qamber, Qamber Designs

Release Date: January 10, 2019

 

BLURB

 

My d*ck never got me in half as much trouble as my heart…

 

We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.

 

Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again.

 

She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.

 

This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…

Release Blitz & Author Interview: ‘Shameless King’ by Maya Hughes

Title: Shameless King

A Kings of Rittenhouse Novel

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: 28th June 2018

 

About the Book:

A deliciously steamy enemies with benefits romance.

Declan McAvoy. Voted Biggest Flirt. Highest goal scorer in Kings of Rittenhouse Prep history.
Everyone’s impressed, well except one person…

After a blow out in high school, Makenna Halstead and I were happy to never have to cross paths again. Except life has a way of knocking you straight in the teeth with a puck when you least expect it. She hasn’t just returned to my life, she crashed into it like a wrecking ball…into my college kingdom, into my class, and smack dab into the seat next to mine. My new lab partner to be exact.

For years we hated each other… I may be King on the ice, but she is the Ice Queen. She has no problem calling me out, doesn’t back down, and her piercing blue eyes have me picturing more than than just my arms wrapped around her.

Now we’re stuck with each other and there’s no getting around that fact that we have to work together. My hockey career hangs in the balance. Problem? Oh, yeah.

I can’t deny it. I want her. More than I ever thought I could want a woman. I’ve got one semester–only four months–to convince her everything she thought about me was wrong.

Will my queen let me prove to her I’m the King she can’t live without?

Only one way to find out…

Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing?

I’m Maya Hughes, romance writer, mom of 3 and wife to an incredibly supportive husband. I got into writing when one of my friends got tired of me complaining about the stories bouncing around in my head and how I’d one day write them down. She just said, why not start today? Something clicked and I’ve pretty much written every single day since then.

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

In the mornings always works best for me. I do it before the kids wake up and before I head out to work. Once I have even a few words done for the day, I can relax a bit and work on other things through the day guilt-free! I write anywhere I can, but usually in our office.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

Anything, really. It can be a song. Someone I see on the street or something that comes completely from my imagination. Sometimes a story comes knocking and I HAVE to write it.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

I generally start with an outline, but the story evolves as I write no matter how much I try to plan ahead. The more I write the story, the better I get to know the characters. The more I know about them gives their voice and the direction a much more powerful thrust.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

My books are mainly contemporary romance. My upcoming book, Shameless King, is a new adult and college romance, so that’s a little different, but they all have the same overall feel. I throw in some laughs, a few tears, lots of emotions and a story of two people finding each other, however that might be.

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

I don’t know. I haven’t thought about it too much. I’ve never really matched up my characters to any actors currently out there.

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

I don’t read too much anymore, which is a shame. I wish I could read more. Some of my favs in this non-exhaustive list are Kylie Scott, Penelope Douglas, Laurann Dohner, Theodora Taylor and so many many more.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

I’m re-reading a lot of older books I’ve enjoyed reading before. I like to re-read when I’m writing because these are stories I know and they don’t stress me out!

9: What is your favourite book and why?

I don’t have one single favorite. I have so many different moods when it comes to my reading and one book might work one day or week or month and later it won’t as much.

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

Write every day. Even if you can only write 50 words, do that and keep doing that until your book is finished!

11: What are the best Social Media Sites for people to find out about you and your work?

Author Bio
Maya Hughes has always loved romance novels. One look at her Kindle is confirmation. She started writing her first romance novel while pregnant with her third child and she hasn’t looked back. Now, her romance writing addiction has replaced her romance reading addiction.You can find her writing on her foldable keyboard and phone anytime inspiration strikes. Her sweet and steamy stories range from rockstars to small towns and everything in between. When she’s not writing, she’s playing with her three kids, running errands or vegging on the couch with the love of her life and biggest fan, her husband.
