His To Break by Liam & Wyatt Release Day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deep waters are treacherous enough, but Everly Mantel never thought she would lose her heart there. But when the hunky, gruff captain of a local fishing boat turns her tender ass bright red, all her former ideas about how love didn’t fit into her life are turned upside down.

James Morelock took one look at those khaki shorts and the wild tangle of red hair and something inside him caught fire.  Years of telling himself love was for fools broke over the bow of his heart and opened a spot he’d forever thought closed.  Only, he’s not sure his version of love is something this smart newcomer to Port Hope will understand.

Will these two weather the storms of their past and finally give love a chance?  Or will James’s rough love and possessive obsession be more than Everly is willing to accept?


Author’s Note:  Liam and Wyatt will smoke your sardines straight out of the can with their debut collaboration.  Hot, rough, safe and just the right amount of adventure, you will be fanning yourself and rooting for these two to find their happily ever after.  Which they will.  Guaranteed.

Dani Wyatt

Dani Wyatt loves her alpha men; make them military, cowboys, MMA — any uber alpha with a wicked possessive streak and an insatiable libido. Receive a free exclusive unpublished title when you join Dani’s private readers group for updates, free chapters and discounts.

 

She’s a 40 something regular lady who just happens to love badass alpha males who pull your hair and love their women with a lethal passion.

 

When she’s not writing (which is not often) she is probably laughing about some irony (like A-1 Steak Sauce is vegan), riding her horse, wondering why The Walking Dead can’t have a new episode every night, or looking cross-eyed at some piece of technology sent to ruin her day.

Toying with Her, an all-new standalone from Prescott Lane is coming LIVE!!!

toyingwithher

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him.

It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke.

He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue.

Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters. Even ten years later, I feel a pull. And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties.

Do second chances really happen? Or is my heart simply toying with me?

#1 Player by T. Gephart Cover Reveal

 

 

 

 

 

BLURB

 

Lila Callan had an unconventional upbringing—unavoidable when your mother owns a brothel. But while she’d inherited some of her parents’ ‘wacky and offbeat’, she was also strong, independent and incredibly intelligent. The fact she was tall, beautiful and blond was a bonus she never really cared to exploit. She wasn’t uptight; it’s just that long term was more her thing, with zero interest in one-night stands.

Until she met Ryan York and then she isn’t so sure.

Blindingly good looking.
Insane body.
Infectious sense of humor.
And charm for days.
Ryan York was movie star material.
Except that he wasn’t.

He’d turned his back on the idea of hitting the big time, more content with being Eric Larsson’s—his best friend who was a movie star—right-hand man. Despite his laid-back persona, he was a guy who could get stuff done. And women lined up to be done by Ryan. He did not have a problem with that. Not. At. All.

Except his magical panty dropping powers didn’t seem to extend to the lovely Lila. And she wasn’t sure if she was going to teach the #1 player a new game, or find one herself.

One way or another, they were both getting naked

About T. Gephart

 

T Gephart is an indie author from Melbourne, Australia.

 

 

 

T’s approach to life has been somewhat unconventional. Rather than going to University, she jumped on a plane to Los Angeles, USA in search of adventure. While this first trip left her somewhat underwhelmed and largely depleted of funds it fueled her appetite for travel and life experience.

 

 

With a rather eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history, T struggled to find her niche in the world.

 

While on a subsequent trip the United States in 1999, T met and married her husband. Their whirlwind courtship and interesting impromptu convenience store wedding set the tone for their life together, which is anything but ordinary. They have lived in Louisiana, Guam and Australia and have travelled extensively throughout the US. T has two beautiful young children and one four legged child, Woodley the wonder dog.

An avid reader, T became increasingly frustrated by the lack of strong female characters in the books she was reading. She wanted to read about a woman she could identify with, someone strong, independent and confident who didn’t lack femininity. Out of this need, she decided to pen her first book, A Twist of Fate. She enjoyed the process so much that when it was over she couldn’t let it go.

T loves to travel, laugh and surround herself with colourful characters. This inevitably spills into her writing and makes for an interesting journey – she is well and truly enjoying the ride!

Based on her life experiences, T has plenty of material for her books and has a wealth of ideas to keep you all enthralled.

Never With You (The Never Series #6) by Anie Michaels Release Blitz + Review + Giveaway

Title: Never With You

Series: Never Series (standalone read)

Author: Anie Michaels

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: August 15, 2017

Talia Lennick expected an uneventful week at the beach with her family. Reading, sunbathing, recharging her proverbial batteries—all typical beach vacation activities. Oh, and dealing with her family, who was too concerned with her almost-thirty-and-single status. What she didn’t expect was Briggs Townsend. Briggs was the handsome man living in the house next door, who looked too damned sexy all the time—whether he was surfing or wielding a tool belt while remodeling his beach house. It was hard to keep her eyes off him. But looking at him and admiring his incredible body was as far as she could take it, because a relationship was the last thing she needed.

 

Briggs Townsend was completely consumed with tearing down the house he’d shared with his cheating ex-wife and building new walls—for both the house and his heart. Women were the last thing on his mind when he spotted her on the beach. Then the firecracker in the sexy red bikini became the only thing he could think about. He didn’t need a relationship—but he needed her.

 

Two people who had both been burned in the past with undeniable chemistry and attraction, where was the harm in a little vacation romance? Sex with an expiration date sounded like a perfect solution, until emotions came into play. Will Talia be able to have casual sex with the irresistible stranger without getting lost in him? Will Briggs be willing to take a chance on her and tear down his walls to let her in? At the end of their week together, will either be able to walk away?

 

 

 

This is a stand-alone read, and can be enjoyed without having read previous books in the series.

 christie-review
5-star-a

 

What a fantastic book to end my summer…awesome beach read! Talia Lennick has come to the beach with her family not expecting much, since her sister-in-law picked a beach off the beaten path. She plans on spending her days sunning on the beach reading trying to get away from her loving but sometimes overbearing parents, especially her mother worrying that Talia won’t ever get her HEA since she’s at the spinster age of 29! LOL! Imagine her surprise when she sees a surfer god in the distance…complete with the perfect abs and chest. She certainly enjoys the view from the distance and is surprised when she sees him go into the house next door.

Briggs, the sex god surfer, is remodeling the beach house he shared with his ex-wife, trying to mend his broken heart. He noticed the hot redhead in the red bikini from the water…he names her Firecracker. He’s definitely not looking for a relationship, but he is a man after all. One night during a horrible storm, Firecracker shows up on his doorstep needing a flashlight. This is the beginning of a romance that will leave you with a smile on your face and a very contented sigh by the end of it.

Briggs and Talia begin spending time together, and they definitely have chemistry. As time passes, the two give into a summer romance but without any expectations…no strings. Briggs and Talia have had their hearts broken by the people who were supposed to love them, so this may be just what they need. As I read the book and got to know the characters, I knew there was absolutely no way these two individuals could have a no-strings relationship. I knew from the very beginning Briggs and Talia are ruled by their hearts, and they surely melted my heart. Not only was there an attraction, but the two genuinely liked one another. I enjoyed the times they spent just talking and getting to know one another. For me, Briggs changed how I saw Talia. At the beginning of the story, I really thought she was younger than she was because I was seeing her through her family’s eyes. For a writer to be able to change how a reader sees his or her characters through the eyes of another character takes great talent, and Anie Michael’s definitely has talent…and this is the very first book I’ve read by her!

I genuinely liked these characters and enjoyed my time with them! I felt like I was a part of their group, and the way Michael’s described the beach has me wanting to go visit Oregon! I have not read the other books in the series. I do have some on my Kindle, so I’m going back to read every single one and buy the ones I don’t have! Thank you, Anie Michaels for a book with a HEA that was magical!!!!

Anie Michaels is the author of The Never series, The Private Serials, and a stand alone novel, The Space Between Us. She started writing her first novel in June 2013. When she is not working, reading, writing, or spending time with her family, you can find her spending time with her close friends. Anie lives in Portland, Oregon, with her family.

Synopsis

What is the one thing you shouldn’t do when your wife leaves you? Sleep with your best friend’s sister.

It’s too bad Roan Reddick never got that piece of advice before he fell into bed with Mia Cavalano. She’s smart, sassy, and sexy as hell. She’s also the only woman to flip his world upside down since his wife. And she’s leaving for college in two days, which is good considering he’s not looking for a relationship, not now, not with the agony that lives inside him from his past. But Roan can’t kick the craving he now has for Mia.

One choice changed everything.

After years away, Mia realizes she and Roan just aren’t meant to be. So she vows to keep her focus on her career and forget about the one-night stand that rocked her world so long ago. But when work transfers her back to Boston, a place that holds so many memories, she has no choice but to go. All she has to do is stick to her plan and keep her focus on work, which should be easy, right?

Besides, in a city of half a million people, how hard can it be to avoid the perfect bastard?

 4-and-a-half-stars

 

Fantastic read….full of steam and romance! Roan is a fighter, always has been because of his childhood. His wife, Georgia, is a drinker, and their two daughters, innocent sweethearts. When Georgia leaves the family behind, Roan has to fight again, to be the best dad he can be. He’s doing alright, and he’s definitely not looking for a relationship.

Mia is interning in his firm, but she’s known him for many years, as she is Roan’s best friend, Chandler’s sister. Roan is about 10 years older than Mia, but she has always had a crush on him. He is realizing she isn’t a girl anymore. The two spend time together, and the flirting is bordering on something more. Roan knows it’s a bad idea, but the temptation is too much. The two share an unforgettable night of passion, but Roan leaves her without an explanation.

Years later, Mia is back. As hard as she and Roan have tried to forget their night together, they can’t. He and Mia try to keep their distance, but Chandler keeps pushing them together insisting that Mia needs to help Roan talk to his girls about the “birds and the bees.” Thankfully, it doesn’t take long for the two of them to realize they belong together. Mia is an intelligent, smart young woman, and I was so glad she insisted that Roan listen to her. Roan was always pushing her away he said for her own good, and I did believe that somewhat, but he was also scared of having his heart broken again. I can also understand his hesitation because he has to think of his girls, and he is already hitting a rough patch with his teenage daughter. I loved his dedication to both his girls! This was a steamy, quick read with a fantastic HEA!

Some of the issues Roan faced were serious, yet there was a lot of humor in the book as well. Chandler made sure of that. The guy is hilarious…he’s a manwhore, but I couldn’t help but love him! I have never read anything by LK Collins, and I have to say I don’t know why I waited so long. Looking forward to reading more from this writing team!

Once Upon a Lady (The Soul Mate Tree) by Addie Jo Ryleigh Release Blast + Excerpt + Giveaway

All it takes is Fate to entice him with the very thing he never wanted.

ONCE UPON A LADY

The Soul Mate Tree

Addie Jo Ryleigh

Releasing Aug 16, 2017

Soul Mate Publishing

 

 

synopsis

 

 

Respectable Lady Katherine Baxton, striving to meet the requirements of her station, has become the ultimate dutiful daughter. And now, the Duke of Blackthorn’s betrothed. Far from a love match, Kate is nevertheless determined to do as expected and marry. That all changes the night she panics at her impending future and runs, stumbling upon a private grove, a mysterious tree. . . and a half-naked man.

The youngest son of a viscount widely thought to have purchased his title, Jackson Cooper demonstrates his disdain for the aristocracy by affording himself every luxury available—drinking, wenching, and gambling—while eschewing anything representing the ton. Jackson has little care for his reputation and no desire to marry. His escape from London is all but complete.

Until fate—in the form of a beautiful, mysterious lady—interrupts his plans, enticing him with the very thing he never wanted.

 

excerpt

 

Kate felt his approach before she saw him. Which wasn’t all that surprising since her body had remained mindful of his presence. Fighting the impulse proved fruitless.

When his tall frame blocked the sun and cast her in shadow, she knew besides giving him a direct cut, she had no escape. If only she hadn’t ventured from her sister’s side. At the time, abandoning Helena had been her singular option since their slow stroll through the gathering had traveled too close to the very man standing beside her. She’d been delaying the inevitable.

Kate was now alone, as she tried to keep her attention on the lawn activities before her, hoping no one would witness what was about to happen.

“Aren’t sprites confined to the trees?” His deep voice washed over her.

She didn’t turn to acknowledge him. “How nice to see you properly dressed for once.”

His chuckle warmed her. “Are you following me?”

An unladylike snort refused to be repressed. “Hardly. You are rather difficult to overlook, being the only unknown face here.”

“That’s not true. You’ve seen my face . . . as well as other, more interesting parts.”

Kate wished she’d listened to her sister and worn a bonnet. Anything to mask the heat flaring in her cheeks.

Thankfully he remained at her side and hadn’t a clear view of her face. “We have not been introduced. I can’t be seen speaking to you.”

“Then let us go where we can’t be seen.”

Her heart raced at his boldness. Why was this man so tempting? She was spoken for, though still unofficially. Proper ladies didn’t follow strange men to private locations, regardless of their marital status. “Absolutely not.”

“Even if I have something of yours?”

Blast! Her ring. Given her luck lately, she would have lost it in the grove of all places. Her aunt would toss in her grave knowing Kate had misplaced her gift.

“A true gentleman would return it.”

His deep laugh caused her pulse to flutter. “I’m no gentleman. Or haven’t you heard?”

Keeping Addie Jo company while she writes (besides her wonderfully loud children) is her yorkipoo, Bella, who is never far from her side. And recently the newest addition to their family, a black lab named Max.

Addie Jo has always had a love and passion for romance books and became engrossed in historical romance (particularly Regency) soon after graduating from Lurlene McDaniel’s young adult books. Currently, she reads any genre that has a great emotional story that keeps her reading into the early hours of the morning.

Addie Jo has a bachelor degree in accounting and is a financial coordinator when not playing chauffeur for her hockey-playing boys, cuddled up with a good book, or writing her next story.
