I’ll be heading to Daytona Beach, Florida for the Coastal Magic Convention. It’s a super casual, author/reader con, right by the beach. I’ll be participating in the Charity Book Signing, with a portion of our sales going to Habitat For Humanity. I’ll also have plenty of time during the weekend to hang out with fantastic readers like YOU! If you love urban fantasy, paranormal, or any variety of romance, this is the place for you.
Information about Coastal Magic is on their website, along with registration, hotel, and travel details. You can spend the weekend with us, or just come for the booksale/signing on Saturday. I’ll be there with over 50 other authors. Either way, I’d love to see you! Come take a bite out of the beach with us!! Feb 4-7, 2016

“Intense and gripping. HOLD ME CLOSE is a beautiful and deep love story, compelling and consuming.”
~ Under the Covers
"I knew it would be a difficult one when I read the blurb. But wow. Ms. Hart deals with dark and difficult subject matter in a way I have yet to see another author do. " -- The Saucy Wenches Book Club
"It's gripping from the first page and I couldn't put it down. This is a book that will keep the reader in its power from beginning to end. If you're looking for a meaningful, profound, moving and sexy story I highly recommend this book, it's absolutely incredible." -- LibrarianLavendar.com
"I always expect the unexpected when I read a book by Megan Hart. With “Hold Me Close” she gave us a riveting and captivating story and she honestly pushed the envelope with the amount of angst and heartache one story could hold. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
"4 hauntingly beautiful stars. This novel really tugs at the heartstrings and showcases how survivors of abuse struggle to move on." -- Ramblings of a Young Girl
"With a unique but compelling storyline, complex and somewhat broken characters and dark, violent sexual encounters, Megan Hart’s latest release, Hold Me Close is a gritty and sometimes, heartbreaking, erotic romance." -- Book Reviews and More by Kathy
"Hold Me Close is in turns a romance and a tragedy, gut-wrenching and powerful—and one of Megan Hart’s strongest novels since 2013’s Tear You Apart. " -- Heroes and Heartbreakers
"Hold Me Close was my first read by author Megan Hart and I was impressed with the way she could take something so horrendous and make into something kind of beautiful. She has brought us a story about love being born from the darkest of situations. This story is not one for the tenderhearted." -- Night Owl Reviews
"Hold Me Close is one more stellar read from Megan Hart..." -- BadAss Book Reviews
"Megan Hart at her flawless best." -- Jessy's Book Club
"Hold Me Close immediately grabs readers and keeps them deeply ensnared the whole way through." -- San Diego Book Review
"If you are already a fan of Megan Hart, Hold Me Close does not disappoint, if you have not read Ms. Hart, understand that she writes stories that tear your heart out, after twisting it a bit, she will, ever so sweetly tuck it back into your chest, no worse for the wear. Prepare to be sucked into a dark world where the light at the end of the tunnel is tinted orange. " -- Writing While Distracted
"Hart paints the results of Heath and Effie’s kidnapping with a skillful brush in her astute interpretation of events. Her development of the complex characters complements the emotional and raw story. Polly’s sweetness and curiosity offset the agony the protagonists endure." -- RT Book Reviews
