Blog Tour & Giveaway: Urn for Me [Royal Bastards MC: Sacramento 09] by Winter Travers

When you're in the business of death, things are pretty, well, dead. Even with a motorcycle club hanging around these days, things are pretty chill or least they were until Rocco Franks walked through the doors of Brooks Mortuary and Cremation.

"I'm the new owner."

Dorothy's world is sent into a tailspin, and Rocco is all to blame.

It would be so easy to hate Rocco if it weren't for his sexy smirk, devilish humor, and... soul stealing kisses. *facepalm*

Gah! Falling for her new boss is not at all what Dorothy needs, but when it feels so right how can she not feel the urn, uh, I mean burn for Rocco?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Sweetheart by Cookie O’Gorman!


   "Can I ask you something?" he said.
   "Why are you dressed like that?"
   I lifted a brow. "Like a blueberry?"
   Sam gave a shrug. "I was going to say a cross between Elsa and Cinderella."
   "Well, well," I said, "the Sam Bishop knows his princesses. Who would've guessed?"
   "Thanks to my sister," he said. "And I still don't get why you keep saying the before my name. Makes no sense."
   It made sense to me.
   He'd always been the Sam Bishop in my head. As in the one and only, the original, the Sam Bishop who stole my heart at age ten and refused to give it back. I couldn't say any of that to him, though, so I just shrugged.
   "I was hired to play a wedding," I said.
   "And they asked you to dress like a princess?"
   I shook my head. "The bride wanted a very specific shade of blue. Not baby blue, aqua or cornflower. Royal blue is what they asked for. This is what I had, so…"
   Sam nodded. "Looks good on you."
   "Yeah, right," I said with a scoff.
   "I'm serious."
   Feeling my cheeks heat, I crossed my arms.
   "Gotta be honest, though, I wasn't sure if you'd be able to fit all that in the car. That's a lot of material."
   His words startled a laugh out of me, and I gave a mental curse. I would not be charmed by him. The guy couldn't even remember my name for goodness sakes.
   "Is part of it still hanging out the door or…?" he said innocently.
   "Ha ha," I said, "very funny, Bishop."
   "Got a laugh out of you, Kent."
   At least he remembered my last name, I thought.
   "And I'm assuming if I hadn't been able to fit inside your inadequately-sized sports car"—he scoffed—"you would've just left me on the side the road?"
   Sam shook his head. "Nah, I would've just had you take the dress off."

Sweetheart (suh-weet-hart): Someone who is kind, friendly, and/or lovable. For reference, see Scarlett Kent.

Seventeen-year-old Scarlett Kent likes the idea of love—in theory. She’s just never had time for romance. Voted Most Likely to Succeed, founder of a youth mentoring program, and an aspiring professional violinist, Scarlett has goals—and a list of “firsts” she’d like to complete before graduation.

One thing that’s not on her list: Falling for Sam Bishop.

Flirtatious jocks who sleep through class aren’t her type—no matter how good Sam looks in his jersey. But when her car breaks down, Sam stops to help…which leads to an unexpected offer.

Sam volunteers to help Scarlett complete her list. In return, she’ll help him win back his ex.

It’s a sweetheart deal that should benefit everyone.

But between kissing lessons and pretend dates, Scarlett realizes Sam is the perfect fake boyfriend. And if she’s not careful, he could be her first real heartbreak.

This book features two souls who’re meant to be, one fake arrangement, so many heart-melting kisses and answers the question:

What happens when a perfectionist falls for a player?

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Faeries Don’t Lie [Heart of the Worlds 01] by TF Burke!

Can Two Worlds Survive an Augury?

Releasing a Chandarion’s god-like magic into the world isn’t what sixteen-year-old Aunia, the village’s outcast, intends. She only wants to impress Mathias, a visiting seventeen-year-old pegasus flyer, who fiercely believes the choice—either Faery or Mortal world surviving—has come.

Her action calls forth the Boggleman, a soul-sucking ghoul, who abducts her dad, eats her faery friends, and sets Dagel demons on her isolated village. And worse.

The worlds of Ahnu-Endynia are full of faeries, pegasi flyers, myths, secrets, and themes of belonging, despite being misunderstood. And if you don't watch carefully . . . You might be pulled into the Betwixt. . . the space between the worlds.

Irresistible Freedom [Land of the Free 01]

Escape… a new beginning.

That’s what Demi Fedora yearns for. And so, she leaves everything and everyone she knows to move to her deceased grandfather’s derelict cabin in the wilds of Alaska, the one he left her in his will.

Meeting Whittaker Hart isn’t in her plans. Though the ruggedly handsome gold prospector does everything to win her over, she keeps her distance until her need to survive a life totally foreign to her nature overcomes her desire to do everything herself.

After rescuing a young drunk and taking on the tough life of a greenhorn, she realizes one thing. Between fixing up the place to make it livable for the coming winter and learning how to exist in a land filled with vicious storms and treacherous wildfires, she can’t cope alone.

No matter how much she yearns for independence, she needs help…. a lot of help.

Unforgettable Freedom [Land of the Free 02]

Demi has been consistently warned that the northern winter would be perilous, yes. Yet nothing in her wildest imagination could prepare her for the reality. In book two, she will go through incredible and frightening adventures where the little bastard (as she calls her wild wolf pup) will be instrumental in not only driving her crazy but saving her life… more than once.

Her ongoing belief that Whit will survive being lost in the fire he and Glen went to fight becomes a huge conflict. She refuses to accept any other ending… but should she?

And Glen, the young native friend she saved in book #1, will be a challenge that can’t be ignored. Life isn’t easy by any means. Thankfully, the awe-inspiring land, many call God’s country, has a way of soothing those in need.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Hott Take [Hott Springs Eternal 02] by Serena Bell!


   After Nia told me that Shane Hott is an actor, I watched the first Crown of Spires movies, Lord of Every Sky. It was full of scenes where he was shirtless, badass, and bossy. He’s basically the villain of the first movie—although I get the sense that he’s going to be redeemed later from the way the camera lingers on his…assets.
   Even as I watched, I questioned my life choices. I wasn’t at all sure watching the movie was a good idea because in a town as small as Rush Creek, Shane and I were bound to cross paths.
   After I watched him in Lord of Every Sky, I wanted to build a small monument to his torso and worship it…with my tongue.
   And now, encountering him in the hallway outside of Hanna’s office, my knees feel less solid than I would ideally like.
   Never trust a guy so good looking he makes you stupid.
   So I do what any self-respecting woman would do in that situation.
   I pretend I have no idea who he is.
   I can tell he’s waiting for me to recognize him, giving me a beat to say, Holy crap, Shane Hott!
   After he got on Bridge and turned into a household name, Anthony used to do the same thing.
   Seeing echoes of Anthony in this guy makes me even less inclined to give him what he wants. Another Hollywood fuckboy hopped up on fan worship. It’s the last thing my life needs.
   “Nice to meet you. I’m Ivy Scofield,” I say, cool and low key, like I’m introducing myself to the manager at the bank.
   Surprise flickers behind his eyes, but he hides it, extending his hand. I take it. It’s big, warm, and dry and, unfortunately for my equilibrium, attached to a toned, muscular forearm below a rolled shirt sleeve. The shirt itself is a soft-looking blue gray that clings in all the right places to his movie star–worthy shoulders, pecs, and abs. He has long-lashed dark brown eyes paired with a blade of a nose, square jaw, and lush mouth. Against my will, I admit that he’s gorgeous.
   I thought I had permanently rid myself of men who were too good looking to be believed, but apparently not.
   “I think we can help each other out,” he says. Actually, he whispers it. “You, um, mind walking with me?” He gestures toward the exit.
   “Should I be worried that you’re a serial killer?”
   The corner of his mouth turns up. “I’m not a serial killer. I’m an actor.”
   “Even worse.”
   He laughs, which is terrible because it makes him even better looking, all eye crinkles and white teeth and genuine amusement. Then he stops—because I wasn’t joking and he seems to intuit that.
   “Even so,” he says, more seriously. “Please. Just…let me walk you out and tell you what I’m thinking.”
   I give him a shrug-nod, and we walk out of Hott Springs together to the parking lot. Now I know who owns the Aston Martin Vanquish I parked next to. I know nothing about cars…but Anthony coveted that car: fast, expensive, and—his words—a dream to drive.
   As we draw even with his car, Shane says, “I know you need our barn.”
   I flick him a quick, confused glance as hope buys real estate in my chest. It sounds like he’s implying that it still might be possible. I will do anything to save our theater—not just for me, but for the kids. I know Nia feels the same way.
   “I can get the barn for you.”
   “Hanna said—”
   “Hanna wasn’t looking at the whole picture,” he tells me. “I am.”
   I raise an eyebrow.
   “You need the barn, and I need you to marry me.”
   His too-pretty-for-real-life face is deadly serious now. My mouth falls open.

The hard part isn’t acting like we’re falling for each other. It’s pretending we’re not.

Shane: My grandfather’s will has me between a rock and a Hott place. If I don’t score a celebrity wedding, my sister will lose her wedding planning business—and our family’s land. As a playboy movie star, I know Hollywood’s ins and outs. But finding two celebrities in love is tougher than it looks.

Enter Ivy Scofield—the beautiful star of one of TV’s most beloved failures. She’s hiding from her past in Rush Creek, running a community theater for troubled kids. She needs my family’s wedding barn to save her program. So we make a deal: I give her the barn—she gives me her hand in fake marriage. Lights, camera, action—and cut—right?

Not so fast. Planning our fake wedding is way more personal than I was expecting. I’m learning Ivy’s quirks, preferences, and pet peeves—and that’s before I walk in on her enjoying my most infamous on-camera scene. Plus she’s slowly peeling back my layers—the ones I’ve built up to protect myself. If someone doesn’t do something soon, we might discover that the only thing fake about this wedding is the way we keep pushing each other away.

Release Day Blitz: Whisper [Westbrook Elite 07] by Cambria Hebert!

Can you whisper?
Something I never thought I’d ask the guy who is exactly my type
but completely wrong for me.
Someone I sneak secret glances at from a distance while vowing to never get too close.
And then I get tossed in jail. With him.
Know how forced proximity and extreme panic go together?
They don’t. And the walls I spent a lifetime erecting around me crack,
giving him an intimate view of all the secrets I work so hard to protect.
Color me surprised when the pierced, tattooed DJ doesn’t recoil or call me a freak.
Arsen gets me through the night, his attention like a match to my insides,
lighting me on fire and making me burn.
Keeping my distance is impossible.
My body begs to be near him, but we just don’t mix.
He’s fire. I’m water.
Sound is his superpower but my kryptonite.
For once in my life, my heart is louder than my head, and I can’t stay away.
But it seems following my heart leads me straight into trouble.
Turns out I’m not the only one who thinks maybe Arsen and I don’t belong together,
and the people who agree will go to extremes to make sure we stay apart.
