✯BLOG TOUR:✯ A Hold on Me by Pat Esden {PLAYLIST + GIVEAWAY!}

She never wanted to return.
He wants nothing more than for her to leave.
But the fire between them is as strong as the past that haunts them.

Annie Freemont grew up on the road, immersed in the romance of rare things, cultivating an eye for artifacts and a spirit for bargaining. It's a freewheeling life she loves and plans to continue--until her dad is diagnosed with dementia. His illness forces them to return to Moonhill, their ancestral home on the coast of Maine--and to the family they left behind fifteen years ago, after Annie's mother died in a suspicious accident. 

Once at Moonhill, Annie is shocked when her aunt separates her from her father. The next time Annie sees him, he's a bizarre, violent shadow of his former self. Confused, she turns to an unlikely ally for support--Chase, the dangerously seductive young groundskeeper. With his dark good looks and powerful presence, Chase has an air of mystery that Annie is irresistibly drawn to. But she also senses that behind his penetrating eyes are secrets she can't even begin to imagine. Secrets that hold the key to the past, to Annie's own longings--and to all of their futures. Now, to unlock them, she'll have to face her greatest fears and embrace her legacy…

A HOLD ON ME: my playlist!

This is a playlist of songs I listened to while writing A HOLD ON ME. Some of them like Dance in the Graveyard and Kiss Me helped me get into Annie’s head. Others like Full Circle, Before I Sleep, and Freaks put me in the right place for writing specific scenes. Sun On My Side reminded me of Annie’s determination. Siren’s Song speaks to the hurt Annie is moving past. And, Tiny Little Flashlights? Well, it was the lyrics that made me chose that song. And Dynggyldai is because every story has its secrets.

Full Circle—Half Moon Run
Dance in the Graveyard—Delta Rae
Kiss Me—Ed Sheeran
Before I Sleep—Joy Williams
Sun On My Side—Gogol Bordello
Freaks—The Hawk in Paris
Let It Be—Blackmill Veela
Siren Song—Moe & Tom
Demons—Imagine Dragons
Tiny Little Flashlights—Darren Hayes
Dynggykdau—Alash Esemble
Hide—Joy Williams

PAT ESDEN would love to say she spent her childhood in intellectual pursuits. The truth is she was fonder of exploring abandoned houses and old cemeteries. When not out on her own adventures, she can be found in her northern Vermont home writing stories about brave, smart women and the men who capture their hearts. An antique-dealing florist by trade, she’s also a member of Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, Romance Writers of America, and the League of Vermont Writers. Her short stories have appeared in a number of publications, including Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, the Mythopoeic Society’s Mythic Circle literary magazine, and George H. Scither’s anthology Cat Tales. 


Thanks for stopping by! :)
