New Release – One Night in Monaco by Blair Babylon

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: One Night in Monaco
Series: Billionaires in Disguise: Maxence Prequel
Author: Blair Babylon
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: August 18, 2020
BLURB

One night in Monaco, my best friend, Maxence, disappeared from the middle of the Monte Carlo casino like blowing away a breath of smoke.

I have no idea what Maxence was doing in Monaco that night. Yeah, he loves the Monte Carlo casino—the stage of British spy movies, billionaires, Russian mafia, and roulette.

But too many people in Monaco think he might be a danger to them.

He never should have been there.

But he was.

And so was Simone. She’s trouble from our past at boarding school. Her husband is a good friend of some of the people who would be happier if Maxence wasn’t around anymore.

They tell me Maxence was here in the casino, and then a few minutes later, he was gone.

Like he dropped off the face of the Earth.

Or like he was dropped off one of Monaco’s cliffs and into the blue Mediterranean Sea, which was just a few feet from where he was standing when he disappeared.

Arthur and I are in Monaco to find Maxence, no matter what it takes.

But we might end up finding his body.

EXCERPT

The Monte Carlo casino brimmed with beautiful women, and Max loved women. He loved everything about them, from their finer skin to their soft curves to the sweet scent of them to the sparkly and beautiful clothes they wore.
The doorway between two rooms where Maxence was standing was half-blocked by Christmas trees that towered over his head and the doorway. He’d been careful not to jiggle the tiny gold-and-glass ornaments that encrusted the tree. The balls and icicles tinkled alarmingly every time his arm brushed the branches.
Maxence had just decided to inch closer to the televisions airing the soccer match when his old high school friend Simone Maina rushed across the opulent casino room and through the crowd toward him.
Her lithe figure was a harmonic vibration on a violin string, blurred at the edges of her slim curves by the lights sparkling on the glass beadwork of her white dress. As she neared him, the smooth skin between her eyebrows and under her eyes creased, indicating strain. Her arms reaching for him were slim, dark lines in the room of round, solid bodies held tightly together to avoid contact.
Maxence set his whiskey glass on a small table behind himself and drew a breath to ask her what was wrong.
Simone’s natural Afro hair was a sleek halo around her thin face. She was reaching out to Maxence, her fingers nearing the lapels of his tuxedo, and she glanced behind herself in fear. Black eyeliner and eyeshadow in soft sage and glittering gold accentuated her sloe-eyed beauty, and she almost looked like an Egyptian hieroglyphic of a queen.
Rough abrasions and the darkening plum of bruises covered her slim throat.
Maxence’s heart fell as rage rose in his body. Her husband, Estebe Fournier, must have thought people wouldn’t notice the damage to Simone’s dark-bronze skin. Estebe had always been a bully when they had been at school together, and he’d been excellent at creating incidents where he could deny his guilt.
About twenty feet behind her, two men in dark suits pushed through the crowd, their eyes intent on her form.
Other men in dark suits—all with the nearly shaved heads and odd bulk of the paramilitary security profession—converged toward them from another side of the crowd.
Wait—wasn’t that—
Maxence could have sworn he recognized one of the men. Maybe all private mercenaries and bodyguards were beginning to look alike to him. Many of his friends employed dozens of them.
Maxence opened his hands as Simone rushed into his curtained alcove and whispered near his shoulder, “Help me.”

AUTHOR BIO

“I’m passionate about books and literature. The best books are intense, enthralling stories that readers can get lost in for days. Books delve into what it means to be human and connect us to each other. Books allow us to live all our possible lives. Books open us to loving each other and the world more. I write intense, deeply imagined romance novels for serious readers because the world needs more love.” ~~Blair Babylon

New Release – Steel by Serena Akeroyd

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Steel
Series: A Dark and Dirty Sinners’ MC #4
Author: Serena Akeroyd
Genre: Dark & Dirty MC Romance
Release Date: August 18, 2020
BLURB

Steel’s a prick.

He stole my heart when I was a kid, and ever since, he’s refused to let go. He’s clung to me, even as he pushed me away, and I’m tired of it.

I’m over it, and over him. Of the games we play together, the endless waltz of him hurting me to shove distance between us.

So I’m out of there.

My future is medicine. If I turn into a crazy cat lady, then so be it. I’m good with that. At least Mrs. Biggins can’t hurt my heart when she poops in my shoes…

Of course, Mrs. Biggins doesn’t kiss like Steel either.

One kiss. 

That’s all we’ve had together, and it haunts me. My nights, my days, my waking moments, my sleeping ones. A single kiss. Where everything, the stars included, aligned and just felt right. 

But Steel isn’t mine to have… by his choice. And I’ve dealt with that. For years. So when he suddenly changes his mind? What am I supposed to do? Just fall at his feet?

I don’t think so. 

Find out if Steel and Stone can ever be together in STEEL, book four of A Dark & Dirty Sinners’ MC series.

EXCERPT

When I woke up, it was like every part of me flashed into ‘on’ mode.
I’d been shot before, had been put in comas before too, so I knew what it felt like to come awake after that.
This time, however, it was different.
Why?
My brain, some part of it, was aware that I’d been shot while being a coward as I turned tail and ran home, rather than go to my woman who’d been kidnapped by a whacked serial killer.
Shame hit me, and it was followed by the thought that, for some reason, I was waking up again.
Was it weird to know that you’d almost died?
I knew I had.
When I’d felt the bullet’s trajectory, as it tore into my body like a stray tennis ball on a court, I’d known that death was likely.
Sure, I’d been pissed about it, but you went into this life knowing that it would probably end early.
What I couldn’t forget, though, was the last thought that had brushed my consciousness before I’d snuffed it.
Unto death, I’d vowed to protect Stone from myself, and I’d fulfilled that vow.
I’d died.
That meant I could have her now, didn’t it?

Rafe

Hate is easy.
A hell of a lot easier than the alternative.

It’s my job to keep Wicked safe, which means getting my hands a little dirty sometimes. After I lost my best friend, I’m not pulling my punches anymore. So it’s hate that helps me win every fight and close every case.

Shelby

Ten years ago, he ruined my life.
Now, it’s my turn to ruin his.

I didn’t plan to move in next door to Rafe Nolan—especially after what he did to me and my brother. But now I have the opportunity to make his life as miserable as he made mine.
And for a man who is so tortured, this should be easy.
But there is a dark secret behind all that pain of his that draws me in. He’s trying to hold his power over me, but I can see him losing control.

EXCERPT

His hand floats away from my neck, and he places it against the door, caging me in. His lips close in on the space beneath my ear, but instead of kissing me, he takes a gentle bite of my skin. Moisture pools between my legs.
When I feel the rough grip of his other hand on my hip, I realize that I’m putting myself in the hands of my own enemy. No matter what he said about me being his family, the love between us is gone. If he wanted to hurt me, he could. Somehow, that realization only intensifies my arousal. It’s like I want him to hurt me.
A high-pitched whine escapes my lips when I feel his cool breath on the wet skin of my neck. My hands stay obediently behind my back, even when he lifts my knee to position himself between my legs, grinding his hips against mine.
He still hasn’t kissed me, but he keeps up the nibbling on my neck and the rough pinches of the flesh of my ass. My mind is screaming at me to wake up and realize that he’s only teasing me. He’s fucking with my head, but my body refuses to listen. Currently, my body is willing to shed these clothes, drop to my knees, and let him be as rough as he wants to be. In fact, I’m pretty open to him being as rough as he can be—which is the first time I’ve ever felt like that.
“Let’s go in my apartment,” I chirp, but he doesn’t respond. The hand he held planted against the door slides down, over my shoulder and brushes over my thin shirt. It doesn’t stop as he reaches the hem and snakes his fingers underneath. Feeling his skin against mine makes me gasp, and I wait for his reaction when he finds out that this backless blouse does not allow for a bra.
If he doesn’t pull me into one of these apartments, I’m going to lose my mind. I’ve never wanted hate sex so much in my life.
“Rafe,” I beg, my voice husky and lust filled. “Let’s go into my apartment.”
Tilting my hips up toward him, I try to maneuver myself against him at just the right angle.
Iit all becomes too much, and my wrists ache from being pinched between my body and the door, so I pull them out and reach for his belt buckle. At this point, I’m not above doing it in the hallway. Everyone’s asleep anyway.
As soon as my fingers touch his pants, he pulls away, glaring at me like I’ve offended him.
“You broke the rules, sweetheart,” he growls at me, his head tilts down so he’s watching me through a hooded brow.
“What?” I breathe, but before I can move, he’s putting the key into his lock and disappearing into his apartment.
“Goodnight,” he says in a teasing tone before the door slams.
What. the. Fuck.

EXCERPT

Out in the van, I watched and waited for signs of Livy.
East leaned over. “Mate, we can’t wait any longer.”
He was out of his mind. No way was I leaving without her, period. “What the fuck are you saying? We wait.”
“Fine, we’ll give it another minute. Maybe she’ll come out, or maybe she already made it out of another exit.”
From my periphery, I saw Bridge shake his head, and I glanced back at East. Roone was coming over from the other car. “We’re going to miss our window. The police will be here soon. It’s better to move, or would you rather explain what the fuck we’re all doing here? Time to go.”
I shook my head. “No. Liv’s inside. We can’t leave her.”
His voice was low and hushed like he was speaking to a spooked animal. “Listen, we can do more by getting back to the house and planning. Figure out where she is, where she went, and what happened. Right now, we can’t do anything if we all get pinched. Do you hear me?”
I growled at him. “I’m not fucking—” His straight jab to my face came quick, and the edges of my vision wavered a little.
“What the fuck? Did you just hit me?”
“Yeah, because you’re being irrational. You’re putting us all in danger.”
I was done. Done playing along. Done getting along.
I had to go back for her. 
East must have guessed my intention because he reached for my arm, which I quickly dodged. Then I stepped around Roone and bolted to his car. Her tracker was active, and I was going to get her back.

AUTHOR BIO

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.

New Release – From That Moment by Carrie Ann Ryan

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: From That Moment
Series: Promise Me #2
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 18, 2020
BLURB

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan continues her sexy new contemporary stand-alone series with an enemies-to-lovers office romance.

Paris Trissel is in a dating rut. Despite the pact she made with her friends to find someone to share her life with, she’s throwing in the towel after only a few blind dates. Add in the fact that the new hire at the job she used to love happens to be the Brady brother she can’t stand, and Paris is having a terrible year.

Prior Brady’s life seems pretty perfect from the outside. He has a wonderful, caring girlfriend, a family he’s never been closer to, and a new job he can’t wait to sink his teeth and talents into. Too bad the woman he has to work with for hours a day hates him on sight.

Once the two are forced to find the balance between chemistry and temptation, however, they’ll realize they’re stronger together than apart. Except when Paris’s past comes back with a vengeance, bringing terror, pain, and horror with it, both she and Prior will have to lean on each other.

In more ways than one.

Is it possible to have her cupcake and eat it too?

Kiss My Cupcake, an all-new laugh-out-loud standalone romance filled with witty banter and white-hot sexual chemistry from New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting is available now!

9781538734674_KissMyCupcake_TR_CVR_V2-page-001 (1)

Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn’t plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day. He may be super swoony, but Blaire hasn’t spent years obsessing over buttercream and bourbon to have him ruin her chance at success.

From ax throwing (his place) to frosting contests (hers), Blaire and Ronan are constantly trying to one-up each other in a battle to win new customers. But with every clash, there’s also an undeniable chemistry. When an even bigger threat to their business comes to town, they’re forced to call a temporary time-out on their own war and work together. And the more time Blaire spends getting to know the real Ronan, the more she wonders if it’s possible to have her cupcake and eat it too.

Excerpt


I take a bite, not as big as I originally intended, because that’s probably what she expects and I want to prolong the agony of her anticipation as much as I humanly can. I intend to tell her it’s just okay, except the moment the flavors hit my tongue I groan. Loudly. “Oh my God,”I mumble, crumbs tumbling out of my mouth and sprinkling all over the counter. Which I realize is disgusting.

But Blaire doesn’t seem to care. She grins widely, satis- faction and triumph making her face even more stunning. I consider asking what this is, but decide I don’t care enough to stop eating it. There’s coffee in the icing, but it’s not overly sweet, it’s light and buttery and decadently creamy. The cake practically melts in my mouth, hints of . . . whiskey, cocoa and vanilla and with the next bite I get a hit of creamy custard with a gentle hint of . . . almond.

Blaire doesn’t seem to notice the mess I’m making. At all. She’s sucking on her bottom lip and bouncing on the balls of her feet. Her lip pops free, teeth marks still evident. “Enjoying yourself.”It’s not a question, more of an accusation.

I want to shove the rest of it in my face instead of answering, but I lift my hand to cover my mouth so I can ask a question instead of affirm what she clearly already knows. “What is it?”

A slow smirk spreads across her lips.

She doesn’t say anything right away, so I jam the rest of it in my mouth. Half of me wants to beg her for more, but I know if I do, then somehow I’ve managed to give her the upper hand. Which is ridiculous. It’s just a cupcake, and regardless of what she thinks, we’re not really competing with each other. For the YouTube thing sure, but I don’t see how she can win against me and my kickass cool bar and the axe throwing. And now the whole live bands idea and karaoke.

The cupcakes-and-cocktails theme is cute. But that’s about all it is.

I try to keep my groan in this time, but a sound of contentment slips out.

“So you like my screaming orgasms?” she asks.

Which is when I start coughing. I also try to inhale with food in my mouth and choke. And cough some more. Blaire takes a step back since I’m spraying the counter with half- chewed cupcake. It’s a travesty because I want that all in my belly and not on the counter.

“Are you okay?” she asks when I continue to cough for another solid fifteen seconds.

“Yeah.” Cough. “I just”—cough—“didn’t expect that.”

“It’s the name of the cupcake,” she informs me.

“I figured, since you didn’t scream even once.”

“I’m not a screamer.” Her eyes flare, as if she didn’t mean for that to slip out.

Now it’s my turn to smirk. “Is that right?”

She spins around, but I can see her face in the mirrored wall in front of her. Her ears have gone red and she mutters something to herself, nabbing the box from the bar behind her. She rolls her shoulders back and turns to face me again. Her cheeks are the same color as her ears. She drops the box unceremoniously on the counter. “I figured you’d want more than one.”

“Yes. Definitely.” I nod.

“Multiples really are the best.” Her cheek tics, and the tips of her ears look as if they’re going to light on fire and take all her hair with it. I wonder how much product she uses to keep it looking so perfect and if it’s soft to the touch or not.

“I love multiples.” Both the giving and the receiving. I leave that part out, because I would prefer to eat the cupcakes, not wear them, and I feel like we’re suddenly treading a very fine line. Either that or we’ve already jumped right over it. I shake my head to clear it. “Uh, what do I owe you?”

“Those are on the house. Enjoy your night.”

Blaire usually happily charges me full price for my cupcake addiction. Although she does tend to toss in an extra one for good measure. I’m tempted to ask if I’m going to end up hogtied in the trunk of a car if I eat the rest of these, but I figure that might be pushing it. “I can’t imagine anyone has ever said no to free multiple screaming orgasms.”

New Release – Not My Romeo by Ilsa Madden-Mills

NMR - RB banner.jpg

“Rife with uproarious moments and banter that sings, this scorching contemporary will captivate Madden-Mills’s fans.” —Publishers Weekly

 

Not My Romeo, the all-new sexy and unforgettable contemporary sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills is available now!

Madden-Mills - Not My Romeo - 29324 -CV-FT-V

We start off with a lie on Valentine’s Day.

My blind date isn’t the studious guy I expected: he’s a drop-dead gorgeous player with sinful amber eyes. Somehow we end up at his penthouse. I blame the gin and tonic.

The next day I learn he’s Jack Hawke—bad-boy professional quarterback with a murky past. The NDA he has me sign should be a warning that he isn’t a regular person. Please. I sign it Juliet Capulet, so goodbye, famous football player with abs of steel, and good luck tracking down this small-town librarian.

But Jack keeps showing up in places I least expect him. Just when I’m sure he’s gone, he waltzes into my community theater and wins the part of Romeo to my Juliet. How’s a plain, mostly innocent girl like me supposed to resist a man like him?

Is Jack my real Romeo…or will this gorgeous football player only break my heart?

New Release – Just the Tip by Kat Addams

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Just the Tip
Series: DTF (Dirty. Tough. Female.) #4
Author: Kat Addams
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 18, 2020
BLURB

DTF. Support your local girl gang!
These dirty, tough females were ready to go ALL. THE. WAY.

As an artist, I was used to getting creative and thinking outside the box. But this time, I might be in over my head.

Or head over heels …

I was ready for love. And the life of wedded bliss that was sure to follow. I just hadn’t found the one. Until I found myself doing the horizontal mambo in the backseat of my best friend’s car.

Aiden was the hottie Aussie who ran the famous Scarlett Herb restaurant. His shizzle sauce was the perfect condiment for the pink taco truck I worked.

I was positive we were just friends until one little plus sign turned our world upside down. I wanted forever, not a baby daddy.

Apparently, he hadn’t kept his shizzle sauce to himself.

Just the tip? Yeah, right!

AUTHOR BIO

Kat Addams is a forever twenty-nine-year-old fashionista following her lifelong dream of writing contemporary romance inspired by the exotic men she meets in her worldly travels. At least, that’s what she would like for you to think. She’s certainly not a stay-at-home mom indulging in excessive daydreaming, frozen pizzas, an unhealthy addiction to purchasing pajamas, and one too many cocktails on the regular. That’s some other romance author. The poor thing probably has to sneak away upstairs to write her dirty stories! What would her family think? Thankfully, that’s not Kat!
