Book Blitz & Giveaway: The Prince’s Bride Part 2 [The Prince’s Bride 02] by J.J. McAvoy!


   “Dammit,” she cursed more under breath as she fought her hair.
   It was amusing to watch for two reasons. One, because when Odette was frustrated, she spoke and cursed to herself. And second, I was amazed by how her long curls magically shrunk, rising from the middle of her back to her shoulders and puffing out a bit from the water in the shower.
   “Why? Why are you doing this to me now?” she asked her hair as if it were a person, and I just snorted, exposing myself. Her head whipped around, and I clamped my lips shut. “Are you laughing at me? This your fault!”
   “Your hair is my fault?”
   “Yes, you, Mr. Swoon eyes,” she snapped. “Of course, I would be all Gone With the Wind when you stare at me like that, making forget that I’m not in my home, with my shower caps or combs or even, at least, essential oils and hair moisture to prevent my hair from doing this. I just hopped into the shower, all dazed.”
   I could not hold it anymore. I really couldn’t without busting a gut. I laughed so hard my eyes started watering, which Odette just made a face at, before turning around for anything in the sink to help with her current hair apocalypse. Containing myself, I walked up behind her as she gave up. Nothing I had was any use. Instead, she kept trying to brush it out of her face.
   She met my eyes in the mirror, glaring for a bit before sighing. “Everyone in the world is going to see me today. I do not want to look—”
   “You will look beautiful because you are beautiful,” I said, placing my hands on her shoulders. “Do not stress. You can take as much time as you need.”

In book one, he was just a spoiled playboy prince whose family was in desperate need of money. Now everything has changed Odette Wyntor has a choice.
Stay or Run.
Royalty is not for the weak of heart.
Can they handle what is to come?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Violent Beginnings by J.L. Beck & C. Hallman!


   “What’s your name?” I ask after we’ve been driving for a few minutes.
   “Fallon,” she whispers, almost inaudible.
   “I already know that. What’s your last name?”
   I need to make sure she’s not related to Victoria before I let this go any further.
   “Brice,” she says hesitantly.
   Brice… I tap my fingers against the steering wheel. I’ve never heard of anyone by that last name before, but I’ll still have someone look into her when we get to the safe house. I have to be sure. I know just the person to do that.
   Although, I’m sure my brother will not be happy that I’m contacting him for a favor.
   I think further on questions I should ask her like this is a fucking date, and I didn’t just pay one million dollars for her body.
   “Where are you from, Fallon?”
   “Sun Valley.” She doesn’t offer any more than the bare minimum.
   “Have you always lived there?”
   “Yes.” A second passes, and then she asks the question that dooms both of us. “What are you going to do to me?”
   Gripping the steering wheel a little tighter, I grit my teeth and answer her truthfully.
   “I don’t know yet.”
   I just don’t fucking know…

The deal was sealed the moment she stepped onto that stage.

It was like seeing a ghost. Sunshine blonde hair, pale skin, and azure blue eyes that held a thousand secrets.

I didn’t know what caused her to end up on that auction block.
And I didn’t care either.

All I knew was that I had to have her…no matter the cost.

One-million dollars later and she became just that.

Mine to break.
Mine to use.
Mine to keep.

But we all have secrets and when I discover hers no one will be able to save her from me.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Christmasly Obedient [Obedient 04] by Julia Kent!


   “I refuse to be the elf,” Jeremy insisted as Lydia tossed the tights at his face, the silky green fabric catching on the inside of his lip.
   “But you're tall! And wiry! Like that guy in the movie.”
   Sputtering, he flung the cloth on the couch, one leg draped over the arm in a manner that reminded him of a brothel.
   “I look nothing like the guy who played Elf,” he argued.
   “With your hair all grown out like that and curly, you kind of do. You need to shave the salt and pepper beard, though.”
   “I do not have salt in my beard!”
   Lydia stroked the side of his cheek and laughed. “I didn't know you were in denial, too, Jeremy.”
   He grunted, shoving his feet into his boots, but he couldn't stay grumpy for long as Lydia stood, adjusting her long, flowing red shawl. Today was the Camp Christmas Festival at Escape Shores Campground, and it was all hands on deck.
   But Jeremy refused to be an elf hand.
   “Miles can wear the damn tights.”
   “Miles is on elf strike, too.”
   “Can’t Pete and Sandy find some local kids to play the elves?”
   “The little kids still believe in Santa.”
   “Then find some teens to do it.”
   “Too jaded. Plus, they're all busy with final exams and sports.”
   “Get Ed and Madge up here. They can be elves.”
   “Grandma did it for years. It's too cold, Jeremy. They can't be outside for hours like that.”
   “I will not be guilted into this.”
Just then, the front door to their cabin creaked open, Mike entering the living room.
Wearing... a Santa suit.
Tree picking in glorious, downeast Maine. Snow. Santa. Roaring fires, people you love, and a good life. What more could a guy want?

Or, rather, two guys?

Mike and Jeremy have a quiet life with Lydia, on her parents’ family campground in Verily, Maine. It’s a little boring, sure, but after the craziness of their old lives, what’s wrong with boring?

Besides, Jeremy and Mike find Lydia anything but.

As Christmas looms, and an unexpected oops leaves them all in a state of uncertainty, they have to ask themselves: is it time to let life be a little less boring?

And what’s inside that slim box Lydia’s giving them both on Christmas morning?

Release Day Blitz: Fractured Things [Folkestone Sins 02] by Samantha Lovelock!

Poe Halliday could have been my everything. The boy who allowed me to dream again.

Over as quickly as it began, one night ended it all—the hope growing in my heart poisoned by a dark secret spit from cruel and twisted lips.

The secret that stole her from me.

After spending my entire life living with my mother’s demons, I refuse to let them take anything else away from me. My roots are entwined with the shadows haunting that town and running from them isn’t an option anymore. I’m stronger than they think I am, and the only way I can escape this nightmare is to fight.

This time it will be on my terms.

I have to go back.


Stella Bradleigh shone like the brightest star. Able to keep my shadows at bay with nothing but her smile.

I’ve been unknowingly living under the same roof as the devil incarnate—the architect of a horrific event kept secret for so long.

The secret that stole her from me.

When she left, my world turned cold again, and after basking in her warmth, I refuse to let it end this way. From the day she arrived, I knew my heart belonged with hers, and even though I tried to push her away, she became a part of me. The shadows in this town are no match for the ones I carry, and if she lets me, I’ll stand by her side and fight.

This time it will be on her terms.

She has to come back.

Cover Reveal: Whatever You Need [Whatever It Takes 02] by S. Jones!

A one-night stand wouldn't hurt, right? That's what I told myself while I was stranded at the hotel bar in the middle of a snow storm. I thought indulging in a night of passion with the good-looking detective would be a great idea. I couldn't have been more wrong.

Apparently, seeing him again was inevitable, especially when fate kept putting him in my path.

I didn’t have time for a relationship. I had a business to run and obligations to honor. But as it turned out, resisting him required more restraint than the set of handcuffs that brought us together in the first place.

I convinced myself that it was perfect arrangement. He wasn’t looking for a commitment and I wasn’t in a position to give him one. That was already promised to someone else.

We might have agreed to keep things simple, but sometimes rules are destined to be broken.

He told me he would give me Whatever I Need. How can I bring myself to tell him what I need is for him to let me go?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: When the Wind Chimes by Mary Ting!


   I let my eyes roam about his face, memorizing the details—my artist’s habit, or so I told myself. I wanted to run my fingers along his dark brooding eyebrows, down his perfect nose, curve around his high cheekbones, and caress those kissable lips. I had the urge to create a sculpture of this perfect Mr. Medici. This flawless being that looked and stood like a Greek god.
   His impressive physique made me imagine him as Zeus, or perhaps Poseidon, who had walked straight out of a romantic fantasy novel, with a taste for mortal women.
   I really needed to stop reading those books.
   I took a step back, composing myself with the little dignity I had left. “Mr. Medici, how may I help you?”
   He stood silent, just examining me. I wasn’t sure how much time had passed when he broke away.
   “I think you did enough,” he said and pivoted sharply, his dress shoes tapping against the tile.
   I shook my head in disbelief as I watched him strut out the door. I was the unicorn and he was the skeleton. He’d just eaten me alive, taken all my glitter power and magic with him. I didn’t know why I cared.
   Oh, yes I do. He might be one of Abby’s biggest customers. This could cost her.
   “Mr. Medici. Wait.” I burst out and sprinted after him. 


Kaitlyn Summers is heartbroken.

When she receives an invitation to spend Christmas with her family on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, she feels it may be the perfect medicine.

She throws herself into helping her sister’s struggling art gallery, even taking a temporary job for extra money by looking after a little girl from her nephew’s school. She also begins to paint again, something she’s been unable to do since her breakup. It’s tempting to stay on Kauai, but she has obligations back in Los Angeles.

Life gets more complicated when circumstances keep putting her close to Leonardo Medici. Not only is he drop-dead gorgeous, he’s a local celebrity. But Kaitlyn can’t shake the feeling he’s hiding something.

Should she believe the rumors that he’s romancing half the island’s single women?

Or is the random sound of wind chimes when he’s close-by a sign that an angel is near and the secret to her happily ever after?

Release Day Blitz: Lights Out [Donington Racing 01] by Kat Ransom!

Time moves fast on the racetrack.
It moves even faster when you’re being chased.


It’s a transpacific flight, my fresh start thousands of miles away from the danger that’s imprisoned me. Producing a new Formula 1 docuseries is my way out. I’m done cowering, hiding, and being afraid of what lurks in the shadows.

Nothing can touch me now.
Except maybe him…

Embedding with this Texas racing team just became a lot more attractive. The way he’s looking at me, with eyes so blue they should be illegal? I recognize a sexy smolder when I see one. Can sixteen hours on an airplane really change my life? Let’s find out...


This chick is insane. Hot, but delusional.
She’s prattling on about some documentary, says she’s moving in with me.
I’m an F1 racing driver. I’ve heard every pick-up line there is, but this takes the cake.

It’s a long flight in tight quarters. The way she’s blushing is doing things to me.
She’s just a stranger on a plane. I’ll never see her again.
She doesn’t know the real me, the monster that I am.

She’s being hunted.
I’m being chased.

Neither of us anticipated what started on that flight. Neither knew the stakes were so high.
Now, hearts, families, and lives are on the line. We’re in for a hell of a collision when the lights go out.

Release Day Blitz: Hunter [Rosewood High 05] by Tracy Lorraine!

I’m a nobody... until everybody realizes who I am and who I’m related to.

Then it’s like a giant target is painted on my back. They all think they can use me to climb the Rosewood High royalty ladder.

They obviously underestimate me. I won’t cower down or give in.

They can’t break me. But he can... without even trying.

Zayn Hunter.

He doesn’t want to use me... he’s already at the top— one of the Kings of the school.

He wants something else. Something he can’t have.


Yet he’s always there, living up to his name. Stalking me, like I’m his prey...

Maybe I am.

Even with the teasing and taunting, he’s not the real predator. He’s my protector.

His rescuing could be my undoing.

Because not everything is a game, and the boy I love to hate isn’t the only one watching.

He just might be the only one who sees me... the real me.

I just hope it’s enough.
