Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Dagger [Vegas MMA 01] by S.L Sterling!


I'd been fighting all my life.

Making it my career choice seemed...logical.

Sticking to what I was good at seemed...illogical as often as I ended up in the ER.

Then my occupational hazard began to feel like more of a perk when I met, Katy. She was a night nurse at the ER I frequented. She could barely hide her contempt for me, which naturally made the curvy brunette with long wavy hair all the more irresistible.

𝙉𝙀𝙬 𝙄 π™Ÿπ™ͺ𝙨𝙩 π™£π™šπ™šπ™™π™šπ™™ 𝙩𝙀 π™˜π™€π™£π™«π™žπ™£π™˜π™š π™π™šπ™§ 𝙄 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝙖 π™—π™šπ™©π™©π™šπ™§ π™‘π™€π™«π™šπ™§ 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙣 𝙖 π™›π™žπ™œπ™π™©π™šπ™§.


They called him Dagger, for the looks he gave.

He knew I hated him on sight, but still, he teased me and tried to sway me.

There's no way it would work. I was on the run and still healing from a relationship with a 'roid-raging powerlifter. No way was I going to give it a go with someone trained to cause pain for a living.

Then my ex tracked me down. And suddenly, having a fighter in my corner didn't seem like such a bad idea.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Stolen Soulmate by Mary Catherine Gebhard!

There’s a rule in Crowne Hall: never look a Crowne in the eyes.
It protects us more than them.
I broke it once, the night Grayson Crowne mistook me for his true love and stole my first kiss. I’ve regretted it every day since.
He hates me.
He torments me.
He won’t let me go, because that night he whispered a secret against my lips not meant for me. Grayson Crowne, heir to the Crowne empire and notorious playboy prince is… a virgin.
I signed a contract in my heart’s blood as much as ink: help him get back his love, repair what I broke. Give him my body, my soul, my heart, let him use all of me, so when the time comes to marry her, he won’t need me.
I shouldn’t need him.
But he’s my stolen soulmate, and I’m at his mercy.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Echoes from the Veil [Aisling Chronicles 03] by Colleen Halverson!


   I shut my eyes tight, aching for Finn. I tried to dream, but sleep escaped me. After hours of tossing and turning, I slipped out of the tent. The camp had settled, the only sound the occasional murmuring of male voices or the pop of sparks from a fire. I walked back to the hill from earlier in the day and sat down in the cool grass, the night wind whispering through my hair. Cuchulainn paced, a tiny dot against the cliffs. How could I, Elizabeth Tanner, defeat one of the greatest warriors who ever lived? The very idea made me laugh out loud, and I shook my head, planting my chin in my hands.
   “You cannot win, you know,” a silky female voice said beside me.
   I started, my eyes widening and taking in the glowing, translucent being sitting beside me. Black hair flowed down the length of her back, her eyes so dark they appeared as nothing more than two deep pits in her perfect porcelain face. Bloodstained red lips smiled at me, sharp teeth gleaming.
   I scrambled away, but the figure waved her hand, paralyzing me. I struggled against the weight of her spell, a crushing weight on my chest, but no matter how hard I strained my muscles, I couldn’t budge an inch.
   “But I might be able to assist you in thwarting the great Cuchulainn.” She crawled over to me, her breasts pressed up against mine.
   Who are you? I longed to ask, my throat muscles tightening.
   “Oh, you know me, Elizabeth Tanner,” she whispered, her lips grazing against my neck. “You took one of my greatest warriors from me.”
   A cold frost chilled my heart, stopping it for a moment. It was the MorrΓ­gan. Who else could it be? I had stood in the way of Finn’s blood oath, Finn forsaking this goddess for me. And now, she had come to collect her debts.
   “You left him behind to fight alone.” She shook her head slowly, narrowing her hollow eyes. “Foolish girl. You should hold on to your warriors better.”
   My heart leapt into my throat. “What’s happened to him? What do you know?”
   “I know a lot of things,” she replied. “The past…the present…and the future…”
   My mouth strained with the invectives I longed to throw at her, but MorrΓ­gan simply laughed, her breath cold against my skin.
   “It is no matter,” she said. “You fight Cuchulainn tomorrow. I can help you.”
   I tried to shake my head. I didn’t want her help. She would only assist me to steal Finn away again.
   “The choice is not yours, Elizabeth Tanner,” she whispered. “Defeat Cuchulainn. Steal the bull. Return to your lover, Finn. But know this…” She sat up, staring at me, her long black hair floating around her blank white face. A flicker of a flame quickened in her eyes, turning into a great red inferno. I swallowed the hard lump in my throat, pure terror racing through me. My hearth pounded like a snare drum, fast and violent and threatening to tear through my chest.
   “When it comes to the Fianna,” she continued, “all roads lead back to the MorrΓ­gan.”

Aisling Elizabeth Tanner is now the leader of the Faerie rebellion. Facing the end of the world, she will have to find the strength to lead the Fae to victory against the threat they face, or risk losing everything, including Finn, whom she’s come to love more than life.

Warrior Finn O’Connell wants nothing more than to fight by Elizabeth’s side. But an ancient Celtic goddess threatens to take charge of his soul, and he will have to wage a war within himself to save the rebellion from disintegrating into chaos.

Betrayal leads them into the Fae Underworld, where Finn discovers his greatest sacrifice might be letting Elizabeth go—forever.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Reckless Times [Paragon Society 01] by Michelle Hercules!



Those are the words used to describe me. I’m an Idol who can’t see, and in this savage world where power is everything, being born with a disability makes me an aberration. Idols are the direct descendants of the gods. We’re supposed to be perfect.

My parents kept me protected behind walls most of my life. They fear I won’t survive in the real world. They have no idea what kind of power runs through my veins.

Stephan Silverstone—the most perfect Idol I’ve ever met—does. He’s cocky, annoying, and pushes my buttons like no other. But he sees me, the real person behind all the preconceived notions. Without effort, he’s breaking all my barriers; he’s claiming my heart.

When I’m with him, sparks fly. I want to be reckless and forget everything. If only things were that simple. We’re both keeping dangerous secrets that could tear us apart. War is coming, and I’m not sure if what we have will survive.

*This is a spin-off of Gifted Academy Series. This is not an RH romance.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Mr. Big Ego [Dirty South 03] by Kat Addams!

Finding love in The Big Easy is a gamble … especially when he’s your new boss.

Event planner Samantha Masson had sworn off alpha men after a nasty divorce. The last thing she was looking for was a man with an ego bigger than his bank account. Too bad that was exactly what she found when she spent a wild night in the arms of a masked stranger.

Planning a Halloween masquerade gala for the infamous Victor Beaumont made a nice addition to her reputable portfolio. She just hadn’t planned on becoming a notch on his bedpost … or falling for him in the process.

But there was more to the man behind the mask …

Millionaire Victor Beaumont owned the largest rum distillery in New Orleans. He had power, wealth, and all that came with it, including the crushing weight of responsibility.

He would gladly walk away from everything for a chance to be his own man, but tradition wouldn’t allow it … and neither would his pride.

As a skilled actor, he had everyone fooled with his arrogance and charming wit. Until he met the infuriatingly talented and beautiful Samantha, who saw right through him. From rendezvous to romance, he couldn’t keep his hands off of her.

To keep her, he would have to take his mask off once and for all …

She’s certainly not a stay-at-home mom indulging in excessive daydreaming, frozen pizzas, an unhealthy addiction to purchasing pajamas, and one too many cocktails on the regular. That’s some other romance author. The poor thing probably has to sneak away upstairs to write her dirty stories! What would her family think? Thankfully, that’s not Kat!

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Paine [Rosewood High 02] by Tracy Lorraine!

She was my best friend. The person I told my deepest secrets to. But when my world came crashing down, it was all because of her family.

From that moment, I realized I’d been wrong to trust her. Her big caring eyes and sweet face were nothing but an act as she’d watched on while I tried to keep my head above water.

That was our past.

Now, I’ve largely put Camila behind me and moved on with my life. Though it doesn’t explain why she’s always there: taunting me, tempting me, showing me the life I could have been living.

I should have been laughing when her own world turned upside down. Karma always wins out in the end. But suddenly we’re forced together once again and I have no choice but to remember the girl I’ve tried so hard to forget.

I wasn’t the one who broke her but I played my part.

She came to us when she was ten. I raised her. I loved her.

Bought and paid for on the auction block.
But not for the reasons you think.
She was my weapon.


I wasn’t the one who lied to her but I hid her truth. 
She was broken before I got there. 
Wild and angry. 
Defiant and bratty. But she trusted me most. 
She loved me best.

So I set her free.

Indie Anna Accorsi is a woman lost in her past.
A pretty little nightmare.
A gorgeous piece of misery.
A mess of lovely darkness.

And now we want her back.
