Title: Sweet Escape (Sweet, 2)
Author: Bailey Ardisone
Genre: New Adult Fantasy
Tour Host: Lady Amber's Tours

Synopsis -

Sometimes the hardest war to fight is the one raging within yourself…

Life will never be the same for Nariella Woodlinn. Just when she thought she had it all figured out, her world comes crumbling down around her-yet again. With no idea who she is or even where she came from, how can she save herself?
She once thought her biggest problems were the ones brought on by the mysterious man she refused to fall in love with—Mycah. But she quickly discovers none of that compares to what she is about to encounter next.
This time, it isn’t because of who Mycah is.
This time, it’s because of who she is.
Naminé risked everything to save her people. Her goal was to bring their only hope back to their Kingdom. As the war rages on around her, Naminé gets thrown into the lion’s den—the false King’s chambers. Can she fool a King who can’t be deceived on his playing field? Forced to do his bidding, can she prevent the downfall of the only hope she worked so hard to bring home? Will she be able to escape with her life and mind intact?

With everyone’s world falling apart and deceit around every corner…can any of them truly Escape?

Her sister contributed some of the writing in Sweet Oblivion and Sweet Escape

I pushed him back against the wall by his taut chest, never disconnecting my lips from his, and kissed him like I was starving for this one thing. Starving for him.
And I so was.
I couldn’t breathe, and I didn’t care. There was nothing else in this world but him and me, and I soaked it up like a dry sponge. He nipped my lip at the same time his hand savored the bare skin at the small of my back under my shirt.
It sent a rush of blood to every nook and corner of my body, giving me a euphoric high. I pressed myself further against him, but it wasn’t enough.
And I knew he felt the same when he slid his hands over my backside down to the inside of my thighs, picking me up off the ground. I instinctively wrapped my legs around his waist and let him lay me down along the cold, hard rock below.
 I wanted him. So badly, I wanted him. Desire pooled in my gut, just for him. And I could feel he wanted me just as badly. I grinned against his hot lips and suppressed a giggle—knowing the others were just an earshot away.

·         A Day in the Life of Bailey Ardisone
Care to know what a normal day is like in my world? Well, I am here to tell you that it is far from fancy. I work a full-time job in addition to being the sole caretaker of the house and pets. Yes, I am married, but my husband refuses to do any of that stuff. ;) So, this is how my day goes. I wake up at 9:30am to start my job. My dog, Nilla, who likes to sleep squished next to me, leaps off the bed and shakes like a crazy person, and waits by the sliding back door. I let her out so she can do her "thang." Coffee is a must, and I love my Keurig machine, so I stick my favorite mug under it, pop in my favorite Hazelnut cream coffee, and wait. While it is brewing, I open my fridge and immediately my three bunnies get excited because they know their morning carrots are on the way. Zero, Padmé, and Ollie, dance around and stand on their back legs in eager anticipation as I draw closer, breaking the carrots in half. They each get one. I do not keep them in cages, but rather they have a large penned in space in the kitchen that they call home. By this time, my coffee is done, so I grab my two favorite creamers - French Vanilla and Coldstone Sweet Cream. Yum! Nilla is barking at the door now, so I let her in. Then, I dial into any conference calls I have scheduled that day, or do whatever work that needs done, and by the way - I have SoapNet channel playing in the background all day, which consists of Beverly Hills, 90210 and One Tree Hill reruns. Once 6:00pm rolls around, I am officially done with work. I try and get some food, because let's face it, I did not have time to eat much all day (I know, I know, so unhealthy). My husband and I usually always eat dinner together if he is home, but sometimes he is working at this time (he works evenings). Otherwise, we would have had a late lunch together. Around this time, I either clean, do laundry, or write. If I am writing, I turn on my favorite music and get to it until the wee hours of the night. We stay up very late, because my husband gets home late. But always, every night before bed, I feed and water the bunnies, and my dog. Yup, I do it before bed, because that is when their food bowls are empty. I get ready for bed, get in that bed, and then dream of my next scenes to write, before it all starts over again the next day. :)
