Nate

For the past twenty-two years, I’ve been expected to follow the rules. That’s
what happens when you’re born into the MC.

Rule number one – obey my father at all costs.

Rule number two – see rule number one.

But rules are meant to be broken, right?

For the past twelve months, I’ve been in love with Tara Mellano.

My father may want her but I need her.

I’ll kill him before I allow him to claim her.

If I have to keep my distance in order to keep her safe then I’ll do it.

I’ll do anything.Tara

I knew there was something different about Nate Jeffries the minute I laid eyes
on him

He’s dangerous, part of a world worse than the one I was born into.

I should have stayed away from him. I should have fought the attraction. But I
couldn’t. No matter how hard I tried, there was something between us. A fire
that burned so bright that not even his father, the leader of the fearless
Savages MC could stop us.

Until now…

Where There’s Smoke (A Sweet Sin Series Novel) by Kathy Coopmans Excerpt Reveal

28 Feb

 

Where There’s Smoke, an all new Standalone emotional rock star romance by Kathy Coopmans is coming March 14th!

 

Synopsis

From USA Today Bestselling Author comes a standalone in The Sweet Sin Series.

The lives of Dean Wagner and Tatum Fields have been ruled by the hand of fate.

The past six years of my life have been consumed by guilt. Since we lost Landon to a fire, I’ve done everything in my power to protect my daughter, Leila, from finding out the truth about how her twin brother died. Nothing in my life means more to me than her.
Not my band, not my reputation. Nothing.

Until I see Tatum, the woman I saved on the beach the same night she dealt with a loss of her own.
~
The daily routine I’ve settled into is what keeps me going. Work at my chocolate shop, pay the bills, repeat. I don’t date. I don’t trust. And I have never forgotten the man who walked away from saving my life without allowing me to thank him.

I know how to reach him, but I avoid him at all costs.

Until fate decides to make another appearance.

This is a story of how destiny ends up bringing these two souls back together, and how fate, the word very little people believe in is really their friend, after all.

Excerpt

 

Death by chocolate and Dean. Yes, please.

“Well, this could lead to a whole lot of trouble.” My nerves all lodge in my throat when he speaks. I suddenly lost my appetite for anything but him.

I swallow when he shuts the door and locks it behind him, confining me with curious brown eyes that have turned as dark as the violent sea after a storm, and yet they don’t release my face.

From them pulsates a force I can feel in my bones. The look hidden behind his stare is far from gentlemanly. His darkened gaze makes me want to stand up and press against him. Feel those lips move in a kiss while his hands roam all over the curves of my body. Those eyes of his touch me everywhere, and I like it so, so much that I don’t want to break away.

“That depends.” I lift a brow, my voice indicating confidence I surely don’t have.

“On what?” His low voice rumbles through my boiling blood and hits me between the legs. I welcome the stirring sensations that have been as dead as the woman they belong to.

“Whether you like chocolate mixed with caramel or not.”

One corner of his mouth lifts, followed by the other. There are many things I find attractive about Dean. His mouth is one of them. However, his mouth lifted in a smile that’s all for me is one of the sexiest things I’ve seen.

“I haven’t had the two together in years. Something tells me I’ll be eating it as often as I can after today.” His grin is so wicked it descends to the tips of my toes. Innuendo to a sexual plea that only I can fill or not; I’m taking it as one.

Right now, though, I want to find out if this man can fulfill all my needs. I won’t settle for anything less. As far as I’m concerned, I deserve someone who pleases me, makes me happy, listens to me, and will hold my hand through all aspects of life. For today, I’m putting my sexual needs above everything else.

His long legs bring him within a foot of me. I tilt my head back, my neck straining, throat bobbing when I take him in. He is so incredibly handsome I’m afraid if I reach out and touch him, he won’t be real. Yet he is. Towering over me, hands dangling at his sides, fingers bunched up in a fist as if he’s straining himself from pulling me into his arms, placing me on the counter, and ridding me of my clothes while he stands there deciding what part of my body he wants to spread the contents of the jar I’m clutching to my chest first.

“Have a seat.” I gesture to the floor, place the jar between us, and screw off the lid.

His big body meets the floor. He stretches out his legs until they’re a few inches from my hips. Then he does something that makes me sopping wet. He hooks his feet behind my backside and slides me a little closer all the while dropping a little deeper into my soul with eyes that embrace so much grief I want to leap into them and take it all away.

I’m so far out of my element that I swallow the lump in my throat, lodging it up against my heart that’s beating at an accelerated speed.

“Let me.” He takes the jar from my hands, draws in a deep breath, and starts to read the directions. The lid hits the wooden floor with an echoing clank. The bubble we’re in widens. Thank God it does; I was beginning to feel the dampness between my warm folds leak out of me. This man is going to drive me insane before he lays a hand on me. I’m suddenly frightened that when he does, I’m going to break apart from his touch.

What on earth was I thinking asking him to come here and test items that should be for lovers who are acquainted with each other, or ones who are a lot more promiscuous than I’ve only dreamed of being?

I mentally shake the fantasies I’ve had ever since I could remember away. I want this to be a slow, deliberate seduction. One that in the end will drive us both to our knees.

“I take it you haven’t done this before? Take off your shirt,” I ask with a sudden burst of boldness and position myself on my knees between his legs.

“No. Have you?”

I shake my head slightly as he exhales a deep breath. The resistance to hold back from kissing him just about snaps in half. He is so strikingly handsome there should be an eighth deadly sin named after him.

“That’s good to hear. Don’t mind taking off my shirt. I gotta ask, though. I thought I was the customer.”

“You can be when I’m done. If I’m going to sell this stuff, then I need to know how good it tastes. Take it off,” I demand as I dip my fingers into the gooey concoction. My mouth goes dry as he unbuttons his shirt and slips it off his muscular arms, providing me with a close-up of a chest that’s smooth, demanding, and well-defined.

“Oh, I plan on taking full advantage of trying this out. Fair warning, Miss Fields, if you put that on my chest, it’s only fair I put it on yours. I make no promises I’ll stop there.”

P.S. I Hate You by Winter Renshaw Cover Reveal

28 Feb

 

 

Coming March 28th

 

 

Dear Isaiah,

Eight months ago, you were just a soldier about to be deployed and I was just a waitress, sneaking you free pancakes and hoping you wouldn’t notice that my gaze was lingering a little too long.

But you did notice.

We spent a “week of Saturdays” together before you left, and we said goodbye on day eight, exchanging addresses at the last minute.

I saved every letter you ever sent, your words quickly becoming my religion.

But you went radio silent on me months ago, and then you had the audacity to walk into my diner yesterday and act like you’d never seen me in your life.

To think … I almost loved you and your beautifully complicated soul.

Almost.

Whatever your reason is—I hope it’s a good one.

Maritza the Waitress

PS – I hate you, and this time … I mean it.

Crux Untamed (A Hades Hangmen Novel) by Tillie Cole Release Day Blitz

28 Feb

 

 

 

 

 

ONLY BOUNDLESS LOVE CAN SILENCE THE WHISPERS OF THE PAST . . .

A broken woman.
A damaged man.
A free spirit intent on saving them both.

Elysia ‘Sia’ Willis lives a solitary life. The only person in it is her big brother, Ky, vice-president of the infamous Hades Hangmen. She loves him, but she has absolutely no love for the outlaw MC he belongs to.
Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed.

After the tragic murder of her mother, Sia spiraled into a rebellion against the rules of the Hangmen. A rebellion with dire consequences that now, years later, she still can’t escape.

As she lives once again in secret, happy on her own at her secluded ranch, a devil from her past comes calling. A devil who wants to possess her once again and take her from the simple life she never wants to lose.
And he will stop at nothing to collect what he believes is his: her.

Valan ‘Hush’ Durand and Aubin ‘Cowboy’ Breaux have finally found a home in the mother chapter of the Hangmen. The notoriously private Cajun twosome have, for now, put aside what chased them from their beloved Louisiana. But as threats toward the club build, Hush and Cowboy are given a task—protect Elysia Willis at all costs. Cowboy welcomes the job of watching over the blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty.
Hush fights against it.

Scarred by events from his past and a secret that plagues his everyday life, Hush refuses to let anyone else get close. Only Cowboy knows the real him. Until a certain sister of the club’s VP begins to slowly knock down his defenses, shattering the heavily built walls that guard his damaged soul . . . with his best friend leading the charge.

As lost and open hearts begin to meld, taking each other from indescribable pain to the never-before felt relief of peace, the newly-mended threesome must first endure one more rocky path.
Only then will they finally shake free of the shackles of their pasts.
Only then will they shed the bonds that have for too long held their happiness captive.
And there is only one way to survive that path . . . together.

Playmaker by L.P. Dover Release Blitz with 5-Star Review

28 Feb

 

Title: Playmaker
A Breakaway Novel
Author: L.P. Dover
Genre: Sports Romance

Publisher: Loveswept/Random House

Release Date: February 27, 2018

 

Blurb
He knows every play in the book. But she’s calling the
shots.

I’m Maddox Ledger, all-star winger and the reason the Charlotte Strikers killed
it in the playoffs. Yeah, the tabloids like to call me arrogant. A real
hothead. All I see is a guy who plays to win. Wreaking havoc on the ice,
breaking a few hearts—that’s all just part of the game. And I’m sure as hell
not sitting on the bench.

When my teammate asks me to be in his wedding party, I can’t refuse. Lucky for
me, the bridesmaid I’m paired with is the definition of eye candy, but she’s so
much more than that. Lacey Easton is totally irresistible and she makes me want
to be a better man. A glimpse of bare shoulder takes me back to a steamy,
two-week Vegas tryst I can’t forget. One I’m eager to repeat.

Suddenly our one-night stand is turning into the sequel. Still, Lacey’s keeping
secrets. She doesn’t trust me. And maybe I deserve it. But I know more than she
thinks I do and there’s no chance I’m letting her get away—or letting another
guy take what is mine. This time, I’m playing for keeps.

Excerpt

“And we’ll be right back,” Maddox announced, grabbing my wrist.
He pulled me away, and I went willingly with him. I glanced back at Braeden and he started toward us, but I shook my head, stopping him midstep. Maddox turned the corner, his eyes burning like fire.
“I thought I could get through this, but I can’t. I’m so fucking tired of the lies. I know who you are, Lacey.”
My heart stopped. I pretended to be stupid. “Of course, you know who I am. Stop being silly. We need to get back to the wedding.”
He stepped closer, caging me against the wall, with his lips so close to mine. “No,” he growled low. “I mean, I know who you are . . . Paige.” Keeping his eyes on mine, he glided a hand down my bare back and reached inside my dress, circling his fingers around my strawberry birthmark. My whole body broke out in chills. “Did you seriously think I wouldn’t recognize you?”
“Took you long enough,” I snapped.
“Oh, I knew who you were right after you left me in Vegas.” My mouth dropped. “Yeah, that’s right, sunshine. A well-paid private investigator can find out anything.”
**********************************************************

CHRISTIE’S REVIEW

5 STARS

LOVED THIS SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE!!!!

I love when I get completely lost in a book, and I definitely got lost in Maddox and Lacey’s story.
Lacey and Maddox were only supposed to be a part of a wedding party, but that turned into much, much more. Fast forward years later, and the feelings on both sides are still there. Now, that they are thrown together for another wedding, Lacey’s brother and Maddox’s cousin, they will have to confront their past and deal with it.

I liked both characters. Each had their own faults and issues that impacted their relationship. At first, I was frustrated that Lacey left Maddox without giving him a chance. However, knowing his reputation with the ladies, I could understand her trust issues with him. He has always felt like he was ever good enough, and this caused some missteps in his relationship with her. Luckily, Maddox doesn’t give up. He is a man who knows what he wants, and he wants Lacey. He stops at nothing to show her he is worthy of her love even working hard to improve his relationship with her brother, who doesn’t know about their relationship. How could I not love him? Lacey is great at being Maddox’s biggest supporter, and she can reach him when know one else can. It is a bumpy road for them, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching these two get to know one another and fall even deeper in love with one another.

One of my favorite aspects of this book was that it was a relationship that started backwards. That made it a book I will remember! It is also one in which the characters are different people by the end of the book. Not only did Maddox and Lacey have their relationship issues to work through, but they also had personal issues to work through before they could find their happily ever after. I hated telling them good-bye, but I know they will be back. I will be waiting to catch up with all the guys and the women who love them!
