Blurb

A soldier losing his vision. A lady fleeing for her life.  An unlikely couple… bound together in desire, need, and love.

The man in the shadows…

Injured in battle and his sight failing, Royce Davis has been dwelling in darkness since his return to England, in more ways than one. Consumed by bitterness and pain, Royce is determined to make his way in the world alone. But when a fiery-haired vixen takes up his offer of employment, his heart is awakened by a woman whose beauty enthralls him and whose touch ignites a yearning he cannot resist.

The woman who brings the light…

On the run from a ruthless enemy, Lily Moore finds refuge in Royce Davis’s home. Refusing to be put off by her employer’s coarse manners, Lily senses the real man behind the facade…as well as a desperate passion she finds herself longing to answer.

The darkness that cannot be escaped…

Royce refuses to believe he could ever be worthy of a woman like Lily. But when the past catches up with his new assistant, he will move heaven and earth to keep her safe. Royce must prepare to do battle with a cunning adversary while fighting against his own blindness. Lily never meant for Royce to be caught up in this deadly game. But now what began as a business arrangement has become something much more. Can a bargain born of necessity lead them to a fated love? Or will a madman see them parted forever?

Excerpt 

Copyright 2021 Laura Shipley

The horizon appeared to stretch on forever, though she knew across the sea lay the continent, but in this moment, she felt as if she were the only person in the world. All of a sudden, a great weight lifted from her.  It felt like the sea had taken with it the part of her which had, for these last months, known nothing but pain and sorrow and had released her from it. A sob escaped, but Lily covered her mouth, trying to suppress the noise. She shouldn’t be crying, but perhaps they were only tears of joyful gratitude. After all this time, she might finally be able to have a life free of fear.


Time seemed to pass at its own pace. The sun’s changing position in the sky the only indication that the day was progressing. How long had she stood there, gazing at the blue waters below? Surely it was time to return to the manor house. Lily took a few steps when she heard a horse approaching. Her pulse quickened, and she froze in place. Who would be coming here, so far away from any place? Should she try to hurry into the safety of the woods, or wait?


No, she was tired of running and knew there was nothing to fear. The men who had been after her wouldn’t know she had fled to the other side of the country. She waited, and after a moment, a horse and rider came into view, making their way up the hill that she stood on.


The man appeared young, perhaps around her age. He wore a long black riding coat, the tails bouncing behind him in time with his horse’s gait. His hat hid is hair, but she could see it was a darker color. Overall, she was inclined to call him handsome. All of this she saw in the few seconds before he pulled up his horse before her.

About Laura Shipley

Laura Shipley is an indie author who writes Victorian historical romance with dark, brooding heroes and strong-willed, feisty heroines. Her love of romance began the first time she “borrowed” one of the mother’s books and was hooked. While she reads all genres, paranormal romance is a close second to historical.

When she is not writing, Laura enjoys spending time with her husband and children. She has never met a piece of chocolate or a glass of wine that she did not like. Her third addiction is Starbucks, and the never ending need for caffeine to keep the creative juices flowing. She prefers movies over tv, too much of a time commitment, but likes spending time outdoors including hiking and rafting.

Her greatest joy is transporting readers to another time and place with her books, and to have her readers fall in love with the characters just as much as she does.

Blurb

AIMEE

As a nurse, I swore an oath to help, not harm, which I take very seriously. However, I’d make an exception for Holt. My cousin’s cheating ex is a vile human being, an utter waste of oxygen. 

His brother is… another matter. 

One look at Devin and I’m fighting the urge to lose my inhibitions and my panties. I know it’s insane. Yet I can’t help but wonder if a little no-strings-attached fun might be just what the doctor ordered… 

DEVIN

I know I’m not Aimee’s type, and not just because of her deep loathing for my brother. She’s willing to go toe-to-toe with me, and I am irresistibly drawn to her fiery demeanor. 

Then, to my utter astonishment, we are matched on a kinky hookup app. 

Could it be the uptight nurse has a freak flag she’s looking to fly? I’m down for any dirty fun she’s up for… as long as she doesn’t expect a ring in the end.

Excerpt 

Copyright 2021 @TK Cherry

“Look, Aimee—”

Oh hell no. Is he about to end to our… relationship?

“—I don’t know what’s going on between us, but it seems to be getting out of hand.”

I’ve surpassed indignant. “Out of hand for who? You?”

“Be honest with me, Brooks. Was this what you signed up for when you first downloaded the RendezOooh app? It certainly wasn’t what I signed up for.”

“No, Devin, it wasn’t—”

“Between the weird vibes and the random texts—”

“Weird vibes?”

What the fuck are you talking about, Holt?!

My blood is boiling, and I’m shaking mad.

“We came into this thing just for the sex, and now it’s turned into something else. And if I’m being honest, I can’t deal with any complications right now. Again, it’s not what I signed up for. We’re out of bounds.”

As tough of a woman I claim to be, I can only keep strong for so long. Against my will, a tear rolls down from the corner of my eye.

“You’re right—we aren’t supposed to be spending the night. We didn’t sign up for that,” I concede.

“What if we put some distance between us to choke out the weird vibe? Maybe we can hook up once a month, or even once a quarter.”

He must be kidding.

Hear him out, Aimee…

I contemplate his proposal, knowing in my mind that it’s the right thing to do. I have no right to be mad because this is what I signed up for. The sex-only thing was the parameter we set from the very beginning. We downloaded RendezOooh because we wanted a straight-up sex partner.

We weren’t looking for love.

Instead, we became wrapped up in each other so much that we created a monster.

There’s no way in hell we can put this thing back in the cage. It’s already out and wreaking havoc on our hearts. Well… at least mine, anyway.

I have to cut him off completely. There is no other way around this.

“I can’t do once a month or once a quarter,” I tell him.

“How about once every three weeks?”

“No, Devin—I can’t do this anymore,” I say in a shaky voice. “Not with you, anyway. There is no way I can continue to deny what I feel for you. I have to have everything or nothing at all.”

There—I said it.

I have feelings for you, Devin.

“What are you asking for—a relationship?”

The disgust in his voice has me wanting to take back the words.

But I can’t.

“I—I don’t know what I’m asking,” I stutter.

“I can’t give you that, Aimee… You know that.”

“I know. And that’s why I’m letting you go.”

Excerpt 

Copyright 2021 Julie Archer

“I know it’s a lot to take in, Seth. You can contact me any time if you’ve got any questions.”

Numb, I swallowed hard and nodded. Then, realizing that Carol from Child Protective Services couldn’t see me, I found my voice. “Sure, of course I will. Thank you.”

“I’ll be in touch again so we can finalize everything.”

I almost nodded again. “Thank you. Talk soon.”

The line went dead.

It had been a Thursday just like any other.

Fixing cars, making plans for the weekend, chatting shit with Maddox.

Until the call that spun everything off its axis, turned the world upside down, and any other cliché you’d care to toss in for good measure.

My vision swam, legs trembling as I walked out of the office and back into the main part of the garage and over to the car I’d been working on. I grabbed the wrench to pick up where I’d left off, but it tumbled out of my grip clattering on the concrete floor with an almighty crash.

“Seth? You okay, buddy?” Maddox Riley called from the other side of the garage.

I tried to dislodge the huge lump in my throat, anything but okay. “Yeah, all good,” I managed.

“Shit, you look as if you’ve seen a ghost. You’ve gone really pale.”

Ha, she was haunting me already. I raked a hand through my hair. If I didn’t tell Maddox what was going on, he’d find out soon enough. I had to hope he was as flexible a landlord as he was a boss.

“You got a minute? There’s something you should know.”

He glanced up from the engine he’d been looking over. “Sure, gimme a sec.”

I headed towards the open door, inhaling a lungful of fresh air.

After a couple of minutes, Maddox joined me. “What’s up? Who was on the phone?”

“Child Protective Services needed to talk to me about Noah.”

Noah was my thirteen-year-old son: the result of an illicit relationship when I was sixteen with a cheerleader two years older than me.

“Is he okay?”

Slowly, I nodded.

He was fine.

He hadn’t been in the truck with his mother, her boyfriend, and her parents. He’d been hanging out with one of his buddies playing video games. For once, I thanked God for Noah’s Fortnite obsession.

“Then why did CPS need to talk to you?” Maddox rubbed at an oil mark on his wrist, eyes focused on trying to remove it.

“There was a car accident.” The lump grew even larger, making it increasingly difficult for me to get the words out. “Hannah, her mom and dad, her boyfriend—” My voice cracked. “Didn’t make it out. They’re gone.” Saying it out loud took some of the burden off of me, and I could at least share it with Maddox.

His eyes grew wide, staring silently at me.

Disbelief, confusion, anger, grief.

Without another word, he pushed me out of the way and pulled on the chains to shut the doors to the garage.

“We’re closing,” he stated. “I can’t let you go through this on your own.”

Once Maddox had made a few calls to let customers know about the unexpected early finish, we headed upstairs to the tiny apartment above the garage. After I’d come out of jail—a six-month stint for petty theft—Maddox had been my lifeline. He’d offered me a job through an offenders’ rehabilitation program, which had come with the apartment. Its one caveat was I could never be late for work.

Taking charge, Maddox got two bottles of beer out of the refrigerator, popped the caps, and handed one to me. We went over to the sofa and sat down at each end.

“Have you spoken to Noah?”

I shook my head, gulping down the beer. “Not yet.”

“What’s going to happen to him?”

I chewed on my lips, fingernails scratching at the label on the beer bottle. “I’m his biological father and the only living relative he has. I have to step up. There isn’t anyone else.”

About Julie Archer

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

This was the perfect ending to one of my favorite series!!!! I’m sorry to say good-bye to the characters that I have come to love. 

I thought Kent did a great job in how she laid the book out which couldn’t have been an easy feat since she had so many characters. For example, the plot moved seamlessly. She began when they were still young and dating. Then, she gave her readers the romantic weddings and honeymoons I had been dying to see.  Of course, she also introduced us to the sweet babies that come from such love!!!! 

I enjoyed catching up with each couple and seeing where life took them. As anyone who has read the books know there was darkness, but each couple ended up with light and joy in the end. Their friendship has endured and grown closer since they have grown into adults. 

The Royal Elite Series has been one of my very favorite series to read…with great characters and great storylines. If you haven’t given this one a try, you really should!!!!

Fate Actually (Moonstone Cove Series #2) by Elizabeth Hunter Release Blitz

Fate Actually, a murder mystery shrouded in the supernatural and the second book in the Moonstone Cove Series and from USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Hunter is available now!

Toni Dusi grew up knowing everyone’s business and everyone knowing hers, because in Moonstone Cove, you can’t pass a restaurant, farm, or winery that doesn’t have at least one Dusi involved. Despite that, Toni has managed to carve out a private niche for herself. She has a car shop she loves, a country cottage all to herself, and has carefully avoided any long-term romantic commitments. 

Then fate handed Toni a shot of supernatural empathy that threw all that out the window of her prized vintage Ford.

Now she’s feeling the mood swings of everyone from her parts guy to her reluctant crush to her second cousin going through a messy divorce. She’s losing her temper; she’s crying a river; and she’s definitely giving in to temptation. 

For a woman who prides herself on always being prepared, Toni has no idea how to handle a supernatural storm of emotion.

Which is not to say empathy doesn’t have its advantages. When the body of a long-time family rival turns up on a back acre of her cousin’s winery, Toni realizes that her inconvenient feelings magic has turned her into one heck of a lie detector. Along with her new friends, Katherine and Megan, she might be the only one who can clear her cousin’s name.

When fate throws a final curveball in Toni’s direction, will she drop everything with disastrous consequences? Or can a forty-one-year-old empath learn enough new tricks to keep the life she’s built without sacrificing her happiness?

Josh

I am a warrior. That’s been my motto since I recovered from a near-death accident when I was younger.

Excerpt

I ask the driver to wait while I go inside to get her. I texted her to let her know I’m here and she said she’s on her way down. I enter the red brick building through brass doors beneath a small canopy and wait in the lobby. I study the marble tiles and woodwork and the art on the walls under the watchful eye of the doorman.

She emerges from the elevator and I watch her walk toward me, her faux fur coat hanging open. My gaze wanders from a chunky gold necklace shining at her throat, down over the short black dress to her excellent legs, and then lower to sexy black shoes with impossibly skinny heels.

Whoa.

What a contrast from the girl I hung out with the other day. But when I meet her eyes, it’s the same person, those sea green eyes dancing with life and humor. “Hi.”

“Hi. You look gorgeous.”

“Thanks. You look gorgeous too.” She touches the lapel of my black wool coat.

“The taxi’s waiting for us.” I set my hand on her low back and usher her out as the doorman opens the door for us. We slide into the back of the bright yellow car and I give the driver the restaurant address.

Sara shifts so she can face me. “I’ve heard of this place but never been there. This’ll be fun!”

We make small talk on the way there. I discover she watched the game last night, which startles me. Although . . . I like it.

“I have questions,” she announces. “So many questions.”

“About?”

“Hockey. I mean, I didn’t understand much. You guys move so fast out there! They drop the puck and wham, everyone’s skating all over the place.”

“Uh, yeah.” I’m amused by her description.

“They were talking about you.”

“Who was?” Clearly, her mind zips all over the place.

“The TV guys. They seem to think it was a good deal to get you from Dallas. They said . . . hell, I don’t remember what they said, but they were complimenting you.”

My mouth twitches into a near-smile. “Oh yeah? Were they talking about my passing and shooting skills? My controlled entries?”

She frowns. “Why does that sound dirty? How do you make hockey sound dirty all the time?”

“It’s one of my hidden skills. They probably didn’t talk about that.”

She snorts. “No! They didn’t.”

“It must have been my amazing skating. My hockey sense? My high compete level?”

“Well, they weren’t talking about your modesty.”

Goddamn, she makes me laugh.

“They probably said all those things,” she admits. “It sounded really good anyway. I thought how cool it was that I know you.”

I like that she’s maybe a little impressed with me since I’m kind of intimidated by her.

Traffic is nuts. We’re barely moving. The driver keeps honking, but there’s nowhere for the cars in front of us to go, so I don’t get the point of it.

We keep talking, but after a while I pull out my phone to check the time. It feels like we’ve only traveled two blocks. “Shit,” I mutter.

“What’s wrong?”

“Our reservation is for seven. This traffic is nuts.”

“Of course. It’s Saturday night in Manhattan.”

I hate being late. I hate rushing. I hate not being in control. “We could get out and walk there faster.”

She laughs softly and pats my leg. Well, that’s distracting. “Not in these heels, dude.

New Review: The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

The Last Mrs. Parrish

by Liv Constantine

About the Book:

Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a nobody: a plain, invisible woman who blends into the background. She deserves more—a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted.

To everyone in the exclusive town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne—a socialite and philanthropist—and her real-estate mogul husband, Jackson, are a couple straight out of a fairy tale.

Amber’s envy could eat her alive . . . if she didn’t have a plan. Amber uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to insinuate herself into the family’s life—the first step in a meticulous scheme to undermine her. Before long, Amber is Daphne’s closest confidante, traveling to Europe with the Parrishes and their lovely young daughters, and growing closer to Jackson. But a skeleton from her past may undermine everything that Amber has worked towards, and if it is discovered, her well-laid plan may fall to pieces. 

With shocking turns and dark secrets that will keep you guessing until the very end, The Last Mrs. Parrish is a fresh, juicy, and utterly addictive thriller from a diabolically imaginative talent.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

The Last Mrs. Parrish is an AMAZING READ!!!! Just be prepared to do nothing else until you have finished the very last page!!!!

Amber is tired of the life she has lived, and she decides it is time to change all of that. She isn’t going to just be a wallflower anymore. She has spent years putting her plan in motion, and now, it’s time. Unfortunately, Daphne and her husband, Jackson are the target. 

Amber truly exemplifies what a villain really is . She is full of envy, and it eats her up alive until all her darkness consumes her. She uses Daphne’s compassion to gain access to her family. She feels like everything that Daphne has should be hers, and she is going after it no matter what. 

The genius of this book is that it is told in both Amber and Daphne POVs. The first part is narrated by Amber. It gives readers a deep look into her deranged mind. The second part is narrated by Daphne. Readers get a look into her life, and they discover that privilege and wealth isn’t all it appears to be. All I can say is the deeper you get into it, the more addictive it becomes. 

This is a book filled with shocking twists and layers of deceit and secrets. It is somewhat of a slow build-up until you get to Part 2, and then buckle your seat belt because it is a FAST ride after that! Don’t lose patience because the build-up is completely worth it. It really is the foundation of the story and sets the tone for the rest of the book. If you are looking for a fast-paced psychological thriller, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl by Max Monroe Cover Reveal with Pre-Order Links

WHGG - CR banner

A baby on the way first.
Then love and marriage?
It’s complicated on its best day.

Winning Hollywood’s Goodest Girl, an all-new fun and flirty romantic comedy by New York Times bestselling author Max Monrore is releasing June 11th, and we have the irresistible cover!

WHGG Official cover 6x9

Raquel and Harrison sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G.
First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes a baby in the baby carriage.

That’s how her brother used to sing it when we were kids—a simple ploy to get under my skin and make me stick my fist in his face—but man oh man, did he get the order wrong.

One night of “kissing” in New York catapulted us straight to the pregnancy portion of the song—surprise!—and now I have to figure out how to carry out the whole melody in reverse.

A baby on the way first.
Then love and marriage?
It’s complicated on its best day.

But our situation is far more problematic than just a simple twist of nursery rhyme lyrics. Before our night together, Raquel Weaver was the best-known good girl in Hollywood—a twenty-nine-year-old sexpot virgin whom the world adored and watched like a hawk.

Obviously, the consequences of that kind of reputation don’t just go away. Add in pregnancy hormones, the media, a fake fiancé, and a selfish manager, and you have the short list of my problems.

As a thirty-four-year-old, successful CFO of a multibillion-dollar media conglomerate, I thought I would be able to handle anything show business could throw my way, but I’m starting to think I might be in over my head.

Good thing I’m all in.
Winning Hollywood’s goodest girl is going to take everything I’ve got.

The Trade by Meghan Quinn Cover Reveal with Pre-Order Links

THE TRADE COVER REVEAL!!

MQTheTradeBookCover55x85_HIGH

Can you pinpoint a time in your life where you realized you are completely and utterly screwed?

I can. I got the dreaded phone call, the one every baseball player hopes and prays never comes.

I was traded. Yeah, that phone call.

Traded from my long time team of over ten years. And not just to any team, but my childhood rivals; the Chicago Rebels.

Completely and utterly screwed, right? Wrong. The trade was the least of my concerns.

I met a girl. Natalie. Man, she’s perfect.

I swore I would never get involved with anyone during the season. Too complicated. But can you believe I have zero restraint when it comes to this girl? I couldn’t get her out of my head and the more I talked to her, the more I realized I needed her in my life.

So what’s the problem? Why am I screwed? Because, Natalie, the girl I can’t stop crushing on, yeah . . . she’s married.

At least, that’s what I was told . . .

 

THE TRADE RELEASES MARCH 12TH!

New Review: All Bets Are Off: A Samantha True Novel (A Samantha True Mystery Book 2) by Kristi Rose

New Review All Bets Are Off

All Bets Are Off: A Samantha True Novel, Book 2

by Kristi Rose

 

About the Book: 

 

FOR FANS OF VERONICA MARS!

Some days, no matter how awful, are not worth a do-over

One wild weekend in Vegas Samantha True and her boyfriend impulsively marry. Six months later she learns three things about her new husband.

  1. He’s been killed in a freak accident.
  2. She’s inherited his secret PI business.
  3. He had another wife.

Broke and devastated, she dives into learning the PI business—how hard can it be? Following a binge-watching How To session on Youtube, Samantha’s ready to take her first case.

When mysterious strangers show up at her doorstep demanding information about her dead husband, she realizes she’s in over her head.

Samantha must discover who he really was. But what if the truth puts her in danger, too?




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

All Bets Are Off by Kristi Rose is a fun mystery filled with lots of laughs!

Poor Samantha…she thinks she has had the perfect husband over the past six months. Unfortunately, not only has she learned of his death, but he was already married. Even though she isn’t entitled to anything, he did leave her his secret PI business.

Samantha is a great character. Despite this devastating news, she realizes she has to do something since he left her broke. So, she dusts herself off and decides to make a go of the PI business all while trying to keep her overachieving family in the dark about Carson’s polygamy.

While taking her first case, she also comes to realize polygamy wasn’t the only secret he was hiding. Some pretty mysterious characters begin showing up as well, and the answers she is seeking may just put her in danger.

The author did a great job of combining great characters with humor and mystery. The cast of secondary characters really made the book even better, such as Samantha’s friend, Precious, Carson’s attorney, Tyson Lockett, Hue, and Leo. The icing on the cake was the end…it really made me anxious to read the next book in the series!!!!

About Kristi

61Lzyjcx+1L._US230_

Hey! I’m Kristi. I write romances that will tug your heartstrings and laugh out loud mysteries. In all my stories you’ll fall in love with the cast of characters, they’ll become old, fun friends. My one hope is that I create stories that satisfy any of your book cravings and take you away from the rut of everyday life (sometimes it’s a good rut).
When I’m not writing I’m spinning (riding a stationary bike- I’m obsessed with having smaller calves. Mine Are HUGE- and not in a good way, ya’ll), repurposing Happy Planners, or drinking a London Fog (hot tea with frothy milk).
I’m the mom of 2 and a milspouse (retired). We live in the Pacific Northwest and are under-prepared if one of the volcanoes erupts.

Here are 3 things about me:
* I lived on the outskirts of an active volcano (Mt.Etna)
* A spider bit me and it laid eggs in my arm (my kids don’t know that story yet)
* I grew up in Central Florida and have skied in lakes with gators.
