Blurb

Age is just a number.

Just like he’s just a boy and I’m just a girl.

Except that’s not true, is it?

Because fifteen may be a number, but it’s bigger than that. Bigger than us.

It’s a number that separates us.

An excuse that keeps us apart.

But I’m not willing to give in until I get what I want.

After all, how many other girls can bring a grown man to his knees with one little smile?

Excerpt

Prologue
Charlie / 16

The hands gripping my waist are the wrong size. They’re too eager, too desperate as they trail around my back and cup my butt. I don’t like them. I even push them away. But they always come back, gripping, kneading, demanding.
He wouldn’t do this to me.
His hands are perfect.
But he’s not here anymore.
The music gets louder, but not enough to drown out the memories I have of him—the feel of soft kisses trailing down my naked back, or a hand brushing through my hair, or hushed murmurs promising me we’d be okay.
I can’t do this.
Placing my hands over the stranger’s, I try losing myself to the music. His groin to mine, our hips swaying. It’s not enough though.
I need something else. Something more.
Just one more shot.
Just one more pill.
We used to promise each other one more day, because we knew it was wrong. Neither of us could give each other up. We were addicted.
“Charlie …”
“Tomorrow.”

COVER REVEAL – Royally His by Madison Faye




Title: Royally His
Series: Triple Crown Club #4
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Royal Romance
Cover Design: Coverlüv
Photo: Sara Eirew
Model: Mike Chabot
Release Date: July 1, 2019



Blurb

Forbidden. Sinful. Scandalous. It’s a place where royal men come to share.
But the Triple Crown Club’s master has a singular, unstoppable, undeniable obsession: me.

The dark, dangerous, gorgeous, and possessive “Mr. X.” runs the most exclusive club on the planet. A place out of fantasy, where the world’s royal and elite come to play out their most forbidden desires.

But for an untouched princess like me? Well, I’d have nothing to do with a place like that, or a man like Xander Hunt.

…Except, he’s about to have everything to do with me.

See, my father, King Aldo, is at a war of sorts with Mr. X. But you don’t go up against the most powerful, shadowy man in the royal world without consequences. And now, there’s a debt to be paid, and Mr. X is about to collect in full.

And he’s come for me.

I shouldn’t be this excited to be his prize. When his big strong hands pull me close, I should scream, not melt. And when his forbidden, perfect lips whisper all sorts of filthy, toe-curlingly wicked things into my ear, I should run, not beg for more.

Ever heard of the fairytale where the Princess runs off with the gorgeous and irresistible King of the shadow?

…Well, now you have.

RELEASE BOOST – Assassin’s Mark by Ella Sheridan




Title: Assassin’s Mark
Series: Assassins #2
Author: Ella Sheridan
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 24, 2019



Blurb

I knew the minute I saw him that Levi Agozi was too perfect to be real. I didn’t care. He came to me, asked for me, and, dazzled by his dark good looks and the bad-boy aura surrounding him, I gave in. Willingly.

My father is set to become the next governor of Georgia, and he’ll use me to get there if he has to. He’ll hand me over, virginity and all, to the man with the biggest bank account and political pull.

I wanted something more.

I wanted Levi. And I had him—until I woke up, disoriented and confused, at his mercy. He’s a bad boy, all right. A sexy, deadly assassin. And I’m the pawn torn between him and my father, two powerful men intent on destroying each other.

I might not understand their war, but I do understand one thing: no matter who wins, I lose.

Excerpt

“Get your ass outside right this minute, Abigail, and wait for Charlie to arrive. I won’t have you shaming this family.”
I was bringing shame to our family? Me? My father expected me to marry for his convenience, for the good of his political career, but I was the shameful one? I squeezed down on the cell, the sound of plastic creaking in protest satisfying something inside me that ached to burst free. Too bad I wasn’t strong enough to pulverize the damn thing.
And yet, a large part of me believed him. Always had. After all, if I wasn’t shameful, he would love me, right?
No. Wrong. You’re not going to let that bastard poison you anymore, Abby.
I wasn’t the Hulk, able to crush a cell phone with a single twitch of my fingers, but I was strong enough to drop it into the trash can full of wet paper towels and walk out of the bathroom without looking back. In the hall, the sight of Levi leaning against the wall, obviously waiting, hands stuffed into his pockets, brought me to an abrupt stop. My mouth went dry. I’d spent my life trying to please a man, and look where that had gotten me.
I was already bringing shame to the Roslyn name; maybe I should embrace the role instead of letting my father’s words cut me to pieces.
I moved closer. One side of Levi’s mouth tilted up, and he wrapped those big hands around my hips the minute I came within reach. A gravelly rumble escaped him, sinking beneath my skin and sending shivers to the deepest part of my being. Heavy-lidded eyes devoured me, shouting a desire I found hard to believe, but it was there nonetheless. Hunger. Pleasure. That look sent a surge of desperation so strong through me that I couldn’t speak if I’d wanted to.
It’s now or never, Abby.
I didn’t stop or slow. I moved into his space until my body was pressed firmly against his, lifted my chin, and met the lips that lowered to mine.

Fight Dirty, an all new standalone romance novel by New York Times bestselling author Emily Goodwin.

Owen Dawson is one of Eastwood’s most eligible bachelors. He could have any woman he wants, but when it comes to settling down, he only has eyes for Charlie Williams, and he blew his chance with her years ago. While Owen is busy trying to convince everyone—and himself—that the playboy life is for him, Charlie is trying to put her life back together.

After discovering her fiancé was cheating on her, Charlie packs her bags, leaves her fancy New York job, and goes back to the one place she never thought she’d return to: home. Determined to start over and stay far, far away from men, the last thing Charlie needs in her life is her first love, Owen…and the old feelings that come rushing back the moment she lays eyes on him.

While Charlie swears to avoid romance of any kind, Owen is willing to do whatever it takes to prove he’s a changed man and win Charlie back…even if it means fighting dirty.

Excerpt:

“Hey,” I say quietly, seeing her sitting up and looking at her phone. “You got the alert too?” She nods and looks up. Even in the dark, I can see the fear in her eyes. “Are you still scared of tornadoes?” I ask, stepping into the room. I shut the door so the cat doesn’t get out. “Terrified.” “I think it’s going to miss us.” She nods again, pulling her lips around her teeth. “Hopefully.” “Want me to sit with you? We can go into the basement if that’ll make you feel better too.” “If the sirens go off, I’ll go down. And yeah…I’d, uh, I’d like if you sat with me.” Crossing the room, I sit on the opposite side of the bed. Charlie puts her phone down and leans back against the pillows. “Do you think it’s pathetic I’m still scared of tornadoes?” “No,” I tell her honestly. “They are scary. You can’t do anything to prevent them or stop them. All you can do is hide.” “Exactly. And the energy gets me all jittery.” She holds up her hand. “I’m shaking.” I take her hand in mine, lacing my fingers through hers. “It’s okay. Try to go back to sleep if you want. I’ll listen for the sirens.” “Aren’t you tired?” “Not really. I closed down the bar a few times last week. My sleep schedule is always fucked up.” “That would mess with you, I guess.” She swallows hard, looking over me and out the window. It’s pitch black out there, and the rain comes down in sheets. Thunder and lightning tear through the sky, and the windows rattle. Charlie squeezes my hand a little tighter. “Bad storms tended to break up before they got into the city,” she says. “We had storms, of course, but no tornadoes.” “We won’t have one tonight either.” I give her hand a squeeze and settle down next to her. She’s still shaking, and it’s killing me not to comfort her more. Pulling the blankets back up to her shoulders, she wiggles a little closer. I don’t know if it’s on purpose or if she’s trying to get comfortable. Heart hammering, I pull my hand from hers and rest it on her waist. The blankets are between my hand and her body, yet it sends a jolt through me. She moves closer again, and this time I know it was intentional. She rests her hand on top of mine and slits her eyes open, looking up at me. “Thank you, Owen.” “Of course,” I whisper back. Her blonde hair is a mess around her face, and I turn off the light on my phone. The storm rages around us, but Charlie is safe in my arms. Her breathing becomes slow and steady, letting me know she fell asleep. It’s innocent and platonic, and I’m hit with the memory of holding Charlie while she slept off her first drunk experience. I’m working hard to tell myself that this doesn’t mean anything, yet I know this will be a new favorite memory of mine…even if it doesn’t lead to anything.

BOOKSTAGRAMMER SPOTLIGHT! @RomanticLit


Welcome to my BOOKSTAGRAMMER SPOTLIGHT, where I show some love to our fellow Bloggers, Bookstagrammers and common Romance Readers. I started this because while there might be a lot of us out there, each of us is different and unique in not just reading, photography, books…everything! A fun way to show some love & learn a little more about the romance community members!! Today’s feature is a very beautiful person and I really enjoyed reading more about her!! ENJOY!


Name: Aline Azevedo

About yourself: It’s always so difficult to talk about me hahaha! But here it goes: I’m a Gemini from São Paulo, Brazil and I have 24 years old. I study Portuguese and Italian on college and work at the second biggest library of Brazil! I love reading, writing, organizing stuff and learning new (and super different) languages! I have four dogs that matches my personality: CRAZY. I love rock, horror movie, glitter and learning new and random stuff! Oh, and my favorite color is blue! Nice to meet you!


BOOKSTAGRAM

Logo/IG name? @RomanticLit

How/Why did you come up with it? Well, actually my blog had a different name before, Uma Leitora, but there was already a blog with that name and at a certain time, I realized I was reading and writing so much about romance novels that I decided to direct my blog just to this genre. Then I made a really poor brainstorm with some of the keywords of the genre and came with RomanticLit, short for romantic literature.

When did you start Bookstagramming? What was the first thing you did? When I started doing book reviews it was on my blog on blogger. Sometime later I created accounts to RommyLit on social media and Instagram was the one I liked most. I love visual content and my followers interacted more in it, so I directed more time and creativity to IG. I don’t remember the exact time when I started, but in I think it was 3 or 4 years ago. I started with pictures of the books I bought and as promotion to the content posted on the blog.

Why did you start what you started? Influence? Mostly for promoting the reviews I wrote for my followers and for the authors and publishing houses of my country. Then I started making some content to IG and now huge part of what I create is focused on Instagram. I don’t remember a single influence, but lots of Brazilian bloggers that rocked the photo game ans inspired me to try and do something similar. 

Did you have any help at the beginning or winged it? Only for the reviews on the blog, but for the IG it was always only me.

What is your favorite part about BOOKSATGRAMMING and why? I LOVE when a picture catch my eye. I don’t know how to explain it, but when I see a book in a good picture it makes me automatically want to read it. I love how creative everyone is to create the set to the pictures, arranging color and objects and themes that matches the book… WOW I could spend my entire life talking about it. The other thing that gained me on IG was the practicity to interact with the people that like the same things that I like, and how people seems more open and inclined to really interact, give indications, expose their opinion… This makes the experience there much more rich and inspiring. 

What platforms do you use (this is meant for APP’s mainly, things like Canva and so forth.) I use mostly Canva (to create banners for the posts on the blog), VSCO, Repost for Instagram and Boomerang (one of my favorites). But I love trying new apps, so there’s always something different on the photos I post.

What social media’s are you on? And do you have a favorite? I’m on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Tumblr. For the blog my number 1 is Instagram, but personally I love Tumblr (even with the annoying changes), I search for lots of inspirations there.

 Do you have any tips and tricks about blogging?

  1. Post at least 3 times per week
  2. Create content. Photos, stories, questions, tests… Just interact with your followers. They’ll love it and will go to your straight to your IG when searching for news and good content.
  3. Use hashtags, but use it wisely. The right ones, not that much, AND USE HASHTAGS ON STORIES TOO! PLEASE!
  4. Be original. I know now days being original is hard. Sometimes it seems there’s nothing else to be created but when I say original I’m not excluding having inspirations. Everyone has it, it’s super normal and healthy to keep your mind working. Just do what YOU like, not what is always trending. Followers search for a unique opinion too, someone that are curious, that shine a light in something they haven’t noticed yet. So snap your crazy pics, write your true opinion, even if it is controversy, read your different sub genres. DO YOU AND HAVE FUN! 

Have you had any bad/negative experiences on Bookstagram? Not baaad. Just some comments of people that didn’t like my opinion about a book, a theme and stuff like that. But I was always super happy in my IG experience until now. Even when I made some mistake with information or something people came to talk to me with the best intentions.

What have you learned from blogging on a public platform like? I’ve learned that everyone see Instagram as the kingdom of perfection. You know that sensation that everyone on IG gave the perfect life? Yeah, I’ve struggled with that at the beginning. I was unemployed  when I started, didn’t have all the new books, the good phone with awesome camera and that made me feel bad for some time. So, I’ve learned that you can make a good content with less. And learned to keep being me and being humble (this is a fragile subjects for some bloggers on Brazil due to partnerships with publishing houses and how this made some bloggers and bookstagramers go super Paris Hilton about it).

Do you have any goals that you haven’t yet been able to get to, concerning your account? I really want to get closer to a font of news regarding the romance novel world. A account/blog that people go to learn more about the genre, the fresh news of romance books, events, movies, TV, etc. And my ultimate dream at the moment is to save some money and doing a tour for different book events and different countries. First to show my people at Brazil it’s possible to go see the world and to show the differences from here and other countries events structures, activities, ideas and much more. Send me good vibes please! Hahaha.

What are some highlights or special moments that have happened, concerning your book blogging career?  My first trip alone at 16 to the biggest book event of Brazil, Bienal do Livro at Rio de Janeiro. I’m from São Paulo, so some bookfriends rented a microbus and we’ve gone to another state to the event. It was FANTASTIC! Bought lots of books, met a dozen friends that I met online, and I met Sylvia Day at a signing. My heart goes insane just to remember it! Most of the highlights are meeting my fave authors like Jamie McGuire, Tammara Webber and Brittainy C. Cherry.

Do you think Bookstagram is an effective platform to express your opinion on books? Yes! Mostly because you can catch the usuer attention not only with your text but with visual content too. Than the chance of someone stop scrolling to read your opinion is bigger. And I think we’re at the flash generation, where small and direct text are most appreciated ever for the ones that likes to read. So the word limitation of the word limitation of the app obligated bookstagramers to created shorts and rich content that calls for the attention of everyone.

What do you use camera vise when taking book photography? Well, I only use my smartphone camera and apps to edit the photos.

Do you use your own props? Is there a fun or MAGICAL way you set it all up? (loc, props…) I’m kind of obsessed with flat lay, so I like to spead the books and lots of items that remind me of it on a neutral background, like old and yellowish book pages, or a pallet. Then I edit with lots of bright and shiny effects and BAAM! It’s ready to post!

Do you have advice for new bookstagrammers on how to start, be, and do? (anything goes here)

  • Search for tips and tricks about Instragram. This is super important to make your posts visible, high quality and to enjoy every action that could help you being the best! 
  • Choose hashtags that matches what you post, but don’t flood your post with it! I recommend 15 at max.
  • Experiment. Take some books with your and go see your city, try taking some experimental pics, learn what you like, what’s your style and don’t be afraid of not being the best. You’ll conquer your followers with your originality and with time. 
  • Do brainstorms! Read more about your fave genre, interact, leave your confort zone!
  • Post regularly!
  • Please, don’t stress about number of likes and stuff like that! HAVE FUN!

Do you have any favorite Instagram accounts that you follow for books, inspiration, ideas…? Recently @musingsofthemb, @ursula_uriarte  and @clayci are my top inspirational IGs, but I like to go to some hashtags like #bookshelf #booksaremylify #booksobsessed and just scroll and see what catches my attention.

What was the first book you officially bookstagrammed, how about the first book you reviewed and posted on Instagram? I don’t post reviews on Instagram ☹ But the first book I reviewed (I think) it was Dark Prince, by Christine Feehan. The first picture of books I posted on IG was of Never Too Far, by Abbi Glines.


LET’S TALK ABOUT BOOKS!

Tell us, do you know the exact amount of paperback you own? How about ebooks? (I suggest not to count because I did & I regretted it) I have no idea! I think I have close to 170 paperbacks and e-book… Only god knows! HAHAHAHA

Do you prefer paper or kindle? I love paper, but I spend the entire day out so Kindle is much better to carry around.

Do you know your first paperback/ebook? My first paperback was Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer and e-book was The Devil’s Lady, by Deborah Simmons.

Do you remember your very first read? It was a comicbook for children called A Turma da Mônica, by Maurício de Souza. It’s pretty popular in Brazil even between adults!

What is it that draws you to a book? (picture, blurb, author..or all?) Cover, for sure! Than blurb. If I like both than it’s automatically on my TBR list.

Do you have a favorite genre you read? And which one? Oh, I LOVE dark romance. Actually I love all the B side subgenres of romance. Like Sci-fi, shapeshifters romance (yeah, the dragon and sexy puma ones), merman, etc… 

What is your ideal bookboyfriend like? (looks, actions…) The funny and sexy tattoed guy who hides his scattered heart and soul with jokes. This type always wins my heart just to torn it into pieces. Its SO PAINFUL but I love every second of it!

Do you have a real life bookboyfriend? If he is a celeb, book model and so forth, care to share a photo of who? OMG, I have two. Both models, both showed on book covers! First is Stephen James (@whoiselijah) and the second is Jord Liddell (@jord_liddell). Come drool with me, my friends!

What is your favorite part about a story? (the beginning get to know each other, the sexy scenes, the middle right before the peak…) The slow burn scenes! Right after the characters have that cliché thought “it’s not possible that I’m into him/her”. And then they start noticing the other, the jokes are no more only jokes, they get nervous when are alone… OMG. This road of torture to the first kiss is FABULOUS!

What book are you currently reading? I’m starting “The Summer I Turned Pretty”, by Jenny Han.

Do You have a favorite book quotes from any recent or previously read books you’d like to share? I love this one from “The Bet”, by Rachel Van Dyken: “The past is called the past for a reason. If you are constantly looking behind you, your eyes aren’t on the road ahead. You don’t drive the car that way, so why should you live your life that way?” 

How long does it take you to read an average book? I’m a super slow reader! 4-5 days ☹

How many reads per week do you think you read on an average? I think 2. 3 at max!

Have you ever considered writing a book? If so, why, how, when and who?! Hehe I already write books and post them on Wattpad! The book I’m posting now (with a long hiatus) is called “The Perfect Opposite” and it’s romantic comedy about a woman than had a crush for a man that don’t have interest in her, but she doesn’t give up. And in order to convince him to give her a chance they both fall in love, with super different personalities, lives, countries, desires… Oh, it’s my baby. I love this story!

Who is your favorite author and why? (you’re welcome for this one *smirk*) J.R. Ward! Because she seems to have and multiverse on her head. I love how she mixes tradition and modernity in her vampires on the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, how every character are completely different and evoke all the craziest feelings on the readers… She is a Midas to me, and I’ll keep reading everything she writes!

Now, the real important question -> What is your favorite book & why!  Lover At Last, by J.R. Ward. I love LGBTQ+ romance and since the first time I’ve read Qhuinn and Blaylock interact, on the begging of the BDB series, I knew they would fall in love and that their story was going to end my heart for sure and I wasn’t wrong! This book is SO BEAUTIFUL that brings tears to my eyes just to remember it.

Do you have any magical words for everyone out there?!  I want to thank you for inviting me for this Spotlight! I loved answering this questions and I hope I can help some new bookstagramers! And thanks for everyone that read it! You guys rock! Never stop reading, writing and conquering the world! Bye!

They call me the sugar whisperer.
Anything your tongue desires, I can bake it. Scones? Child’s play. Cupcakes? I’ll frost them so good you won’t know what hit you. Donuts? Please.
You’re talking to a master baker.
But there’s one egg I’ve never been able to crack.
My best friend.
Correction: My former best friend.
She’s the apple in my pie. The whip in my cream. The lemon in my meringue. The wish in my bone.
She’s the one who got away.
After ten years in the military, she’s back. She’s bruised and battered by life, but she’s back.
Except she’s not my second chance. She’s gone to the dark side.
Running a rival bakery in a town not big enough for two.
So now I have to decide—which do I want more?
My bakery?
Or the woman I never should’ve let go in the first place?

Master Baker is a deliciously fun friends-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy featuring a smooth-talking baker, the one who got away, and a goat with more matchmaking tendencies than a nosy old grandpa. It stands alone with no cheating or cliffhangers.

Blinded by anger, the man who had sworn to protect me,
shot me in a fit of rage when I was only sixteen years old.

He thought he killed me. 
But my job wasn’t finished yet.

My days are spent as President of the Heaven’s Guardians MC.
Nights are spent searching for the scum of the earth.

Rapists, Murderers, Pedophiles.
They all answer to me.

I thought I’d seen it all.
Thought my heart couldn’t be any darker.
Thought I knew exactly how far I was willing to go.

Then a battered and broken woman was found behind our clubhouse,
and I realized, I’ve never had a clue about the monster that lurks within.

They may call me Priest,
but I’d sell my soul to the devil before I let anything take her away from me.

RELEASE BOOST – Bossy Brothers: Jesse by JA Huss




Title: Bossy Brothers: Jesse
Series: Bossy Brothers #1
Author: JA Huss
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 24, 2019



Blurb

Thirteen years before Emma Dumas bought me in a bachelor auction to teach me a lesson she stole my heart down on Key West. I fell so hard for this girl I made all the promises. Only with Emma, I really meant them.

And then I disappeared.

But it wasn’t my fault. Let’s just call my reason “Family Business”. I’d tell you what that business is, but then I’d have to kill you. Just kidding. I can’t tell you what my family business is because it’s so secret, even I don’t know.

My point is… I didn’t ghost. It was a weird twist of circumstances. And OK, yes. I did hook up with pretty much every girl on the island that week. But after I met Emma, I was ruined. She’s the only one I wanted.

It’s been thirteen years. I’m a changed man. I STILL want her. I have ALWAYS wanted her.

But it’s kind of hard to tell her that with a gag in my mouth and a hood over my head.

*****

Bossy Brothers: Jesse features a bachelor auction gone wrong, four smart ladies who botch a crazy revenge kidnapping, a fancy power dream date with fast cars, private jets, and expensive yachts, lots of ex-sex, and a happily ever after that proves… sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.

Excerpt

JESSE

I’m outside. Where are you?
That’s what I text to Emma once I pull up in front of her building. She’s testing me but I’m ready for her today. I am willing to overlook the drugging and the kidnapping—but no one walks out on me the way she did last night.
No one.
So am I being petty and childish by demanding that she spend the day with me learning her lesson?
Absolutely.
Do I care?
Absolutely not.
I don’t even know what we’re going to do today. I have no plans other than monopolize her day. Make her waste time with me. Make her hate me.
This is what’s called the classic hate fuck, Jesse.
Her words are burned into my mind forever. I will never stop hearing her say that to me. Ever.
The balls on this woman. Giant, motherfucking bull-sized balls on this woman.
My phone dings in my hand just as a horn honks behind me.
I glance down at the screen and read her message. I’m right behind you.
Then I glance in the rear-view and see her waving at me from a… what the fuck?
She’s smiling broadly from the driver’s seat of a matte-black Lamborghini Huracán, her curlicue pigtails bobbing around her face.
She honks again. My phone dings. The text reads. Get in. I’m driving.
Oh, I don’t think so. I came here in a motherfucking Ferrari Portofino. Red. So I text back. You get in. I’m driving.
My phone rings. “What?” I ask, so annoyed. Because while the Portofino was an excellent choice, I do have to admit the Huracán has sex written all over it.
“I’m driving. Get in.”
“You’re not driving,” I say. “I’m the man, I do the driving.”
She revs her engine behind me. “We’re taking my car. If you’re a good boy maybe I’ll let you drive it.”
“I could buy my own Huracán, Emma. I don’t need to drive yours.”
I catch her smiling even bigger in the mirror. “We can compare dicks all day long if you want. But I’m not getting out of this car until we arrive at our destination. So. I suggest you pick and choose your battles carefully, Mr. Boston. Because as you can see, I’m sporting pigtails. And what you can’t see is that I’m wearing the same outfit I was that day at the shaved ice stand all those years ago.”
“Hmm,” I say.
“Hmm, indeed. This is your fantasy, right? You want to make me look like that teenager I was back then. Fine. I’ll play along. If you let me drive my car.”
“I don’t know where you got this car, but it’s definitely not yours.”
“It is now. I had it delivered fifteen minutes ago.”
“You bought a two-hundred-thousand-dollar car to impress me?”
“Two-seventy-five with upgrades. But who’s counting? And I didn’t do it to impress you, Jesse. Don’t be dumb. I did it to make you feel inferior.”
“So that’s how this is gonna go?”
“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
“You’re trying to hate-fuck me with a car.”
“I… don’t really know if that’s a thing. But sure.”
I hesitate.
“You know you want to drive it.”
“I really don’t have a thing for fast cars, Emma. You miscalculated.”
She revs her engine again and it sounds like a fucking lion. Or a lion ready to fuck. One of the two. “Everyone has a thing for this car. Don’t you want to see the interior? I wish I had time to customize it myself, but oh, well. Listen to the sound system—”
The chorus of Smells Like Teen Spirit blares out into the city. Everyone within a hundred yards turn to look at her.
I check the mirror again and find her banging her head and laughing hysterically, her pigtails flying back and forth.
I text, Stop it. You’re embarrassing yourself.
She pauses her head-banging to text back. Get. In. The. Car. Now. Or I’ll roll down the window and ask that hot-as-fuck jogger to get in instead.
I glance at the jogger. He’s shirtless, sweaty, and not bad-looking—OK. No. He’s hot, even I can see that—and he’s also smiling at Emma like he wants to throw her down on the hood of that Huracán and fuck her right here in front of the whole city.
I get out, toss my keys to her building valet, and intercept the jogger with a hand in the air. “Back off, asshole.”

RELEASE BOOST – His Pretty Little Thief by Madison Faye




Title: His Pretty Little Thief
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Billionaire Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 24, 2019



Blurb

She thinks it’s her who’s the hunter, and me the prey.
She thinks she’s playing me in order to steal what she wants.
…She couldn’t be more wrong.
Because tonight, it’s me who’ll be stealing her.
Tonight she’s mine.


Dear little thief,

I know what you came for. I know you thought it’d be easy. I know you thought I would be easy. Spoiler, it won’t be, and I’m not.

You thought seducing me, and stealing a sample of my…seed, to sell on the black market would be a breeze. Except we both know you’ve never done anything with a man, let alone one as powerful, and rich, and obsessed as me.

I know I should have you arrested. A man with my wealth and my power could ruin you with a snap of the fingers. But I won’t.

Maybe it’s because you intrigue me, little one. Maybe it’s because I enjoy a challenge. Or maybe it’s just because you look so f-ing pretty on your knees saying “please, sir”.

We’ll just have to find out. Let the games begin.

Come and play, little thief. Come and play, so I can play with you.

The gorgeous psychologist has plagued his dreams since the day they met. Even as their mission pushes him to his limits, he can’t stop thinking about taking his shot at finding a life beyond all this with her.

Ariel Adisa is a force to be reckoned with. Her performance in Toronto proved she’s more than just a brilliant mind, but Robert still acts as if she is a wilting flower who needs his protection. Joining him on the mission to Munich should be the perfect opportunity to test their skills and cement their relationship. She and Robert are an excellent match. But when a stunning secret from Robert’s past is revealed, their world is turned upside down and nothing will ever be the same again.

While they chase dark secrets across Europe, Robert and Ariel realize that the only thing worse than not knowing who you are could be discovering who you used to be…

Excerpt:

There was a knock on her door. Ariel glanced to the clock. It was getting late. The pizza had likely arrived. She didn’t want pizza. She wanted to start the day again and not have any of this hanging over them. When she’d gotten on that plane, she’d been filled with anticipation, and all of it was gone now. She’d expected dinner to be a quiet affair with only her and Robert. Now she would have to referee between Owen and Dante. She needed to get the whole group together for a session to get at the underlying problem. “I’ve got to go, Damon.” “Be safe.” She hung up her mobile and slipped it into her pocket before answering the door. She’d expected Rebecca or Owen, but it was Robert who stood in her doorway. And he looked delicious. He’d changed out of his traveling clothes into a set of perfectly pressed black slacks, a snowy white dress shirt, and blue tie. It should have looked staid. It would have on most men, but on Robert it made her wonder what she would see when she peeled off all those clothes. She had a damn degree in psychology and it didn’t mean anything when her hormones got involved. “Hey, I know I acted like a massive asshole earlier today.” He had a grim look on his face that changed to charming when he brought his hand around from his back and showed her the perfect white rose he offered her. “Would you please let me make up for it?” There were a thousand reasons to say no. She could do it gently. She could remind him that the first chance they’d had to prove they could manage a relationship and still work together they’d blown. She could point out that there was still the hope of a cure out there. Or you could live in the moment, my love. You could stop being so in that head of yours and let yourself feel. Sometimes she could still hear her father’s wise voice in her head. He’d done so much, taken so many chances to bring his family to a better place. “Ariel, please. I’m sorry I treated you like that. I took out my bad day on you and it wasn’t fair. I wanted our night together. I planned it all out, but I forgot that the only really important part of the night wasn’t the restaurant or the hotel. It was that we got to be together. Be with me for a while.” She took the rose from his hand, all thoughts of why this was a bad idea flying out of her head. “Yes.” But she wasn’t nearly as dressed as he was. “Give me a minute to change.” He shook his head. “You look beautiful and we’re only going to the kitchen.” “You dressed for the occasion.” “I was also the asshole who challenged the authority of my commander in the field. Trust me, I like this far better than dropping to the floor and giving you a hundred like I…” He shook his head. “Not going there.” She stepped in, putting a hand on his face. “It’s okay. Let the visual piece go and tell me what you felt.” He pressed his cheek against her hand. “No therapist stuff tonight. I promise I’ll write it down later and talk to Kai about it, but I want you to stop thinking about me as a patient. This can’t work if you don’t. Please come to the kitchen with me. I managed to shove everyone else in the media room. They’re watching a football match. Well, Rebecca is reading on her e-reader and rolling her eyes when the guys yell at the screen, but the kitchen is on the opposite end of the floor. I promise it’s quiet there.” She was still in the slacks and blouse she’d worn this afternoon. They were casual and comfortable. Certainly not something she would wear on a date. Robert was far better dressed for the occasion. A vision of a private dinner where he was in a suit and she was wearing absolutely nothing floated across her brain. Sir wouldn’t want her in clothes. Sir would want to see nothing but her own skin so he could touch her everywhere, whenever he pleased. They could spend long hours like that. She wouldn’t worry about anything at all but pleasing her dominant partner. “Come on.” He used that deep voice on her she’d heard him use at The Garden. Like her, Robert spent at least one night each weekend playing. She’d seen him paired up with some of her friends, but never had he taken one to a privacy room or up to his flat. She hadn’t indulged herself in sex in a long time. She followed him down the hallway and sure enough, heard someone yelling from the far end about a ref’s call. Poor Rebecca. Robert led her away from it, his loafers making no sound over the carpet. This part of the club was comfortable, much more like a home than downstairs, and it made her wonder if Peter often had guests he put up here. She’d talked briefly to the man and he appeared to be very interested in teaching and training new D/s couples. Were she and Robert going to be a D/s couple? She stopped that line of thinking. This was nothing more than a pleasant way to spend an evening with a man she liked enormously. With a man she might be falling in love with.

Release Blitz – THE KISS PLOT by Nicole French








Jane and Eric de Vries.
Often enemies. Sometimes lovers.
Husband and wife. Or are we?

I wore the dress. We said the vows.
And somehow it became more than just a stunt to collect his billions.
A promise bound by love, not hate.
Until he humiliated me in front of all of New York and disappeared.

Now my errant husband has returned, and it’s like I never existed.
Except when he looks at me like he wants to rip my dress from my body.
Something’s holding him back. And I won’t rest until I discover its cause.

See, this wild heir is about to find out: karma’s a fickle mistress.
My weapons? Batting eyelashes, high heels, and that red lipstick he can’t resist.
I’ll break down his mask, little by little. And then I’ll make him pay for what he did.
I just need to keep my heart in check while I do it.



AVAILABLE NOW

 Amazon AU | Apple | Nook | Kobo













Eric de Vries.
Looks like millions. Worth billions.
A body like the David with a mind to match.
Unfortunately for this wayward heir, to keep his money, he needs a wife.
And of all the women in the world, he chooses me.

Too bad I’ve hated him for five years, since he took all my tears and tossed me away. The guy slept his way through half of New England and discarded women like hotel toiletries.
Been there. Done that.

Still…what would you do for twenty million dollars?
Would you wear the dress?
Fake a smile for the man who broke your heart?
Or would you run far, far away?

Yeah, that’s what I thought.
I’ll see you at the church.
