Book Blitz & Giveaway: Smoke [The Carelli Family Saga 01] by Eden Butler!

Smoke Carelli lived by his own rules.

He wasn’t interested in normal.

He didn’t care about things like love and commitment, damn sure not marriage and forever.

And when the demons from her past resurface, Smoke and Maggie may have to break more than their own rules to win their freedom.

But will it cost them everything and everyone they love?

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: End Game [Sinners MC 02] by Jennifer Hanks!

She’s his obligation.

Josie Carmichael is uptight, opinionated, and judgmental.

She has no place in his motorcycle club, but he’s made a commitment to protect her after she became a target for his enemies, and as the president, he takes that seriously. Setting up her protection is easy. However, ignoring the heat between them is impossible, and it isn’t long before he’s sacrificing everything to get close to her.

He’s her nemesis.

John Pierce, known only to his MC brothers as Bear, is overbearing, infuriating, and pushy.

He lives his life on his own terms, in complete contradiction to how she lives hers, but she needs his protection to keep herself and the kids in her program safe. However, as their obsessive attraction continues to pull them together, she begins second-guessing everything she thought she knew about the man and what he’s willing to do for her and the club.

But things are rarely what they seem.

With danger still lurking and the club’s enemies marking their targets, can love keep them together?

Or will their differences tear them apart?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: The Hero I Need by Nicole Snow!


   “Car trouble?” a deep voice booms behind me.
   The back of my head smacks the steering wheel in my rush to get up. Ow.
   Pressing a hand against the stinging pain, I stand up, close my eyes, and say a quick prayer in my head.
   The gruff voice isn’t Niles or Priscilla Foss’, but only God knows who they’d send after me if they’ve figured out Bruce the tiger is gone.
   “Lady? You okay?” the stranger thunders again, this time closer.
   “Yes! Never better,” I strangle out. Not easily with my heart pounding in my throat.
   “Funny kind of better,” the voice growls to my back. “Looks more like you could use a hand.”
   Hoping it’ll help, I gather my hair in one hand and lift it off the back of my neck, which is slicked with sweat in the humid night air, and finally turn around.
   Holy Ohio.
   I have to release my hair in order to tilt my head back far enough to see more than a massive chest covered with a black t-shirt sporting a picture of a purple bob cat. Mouth open. Teeth showing.
   And it turns out that slab of a chest is attached to a mountain with arms and legs.
   He’s tall, dark, shredded, and deliriously handsome.
   I won’t call him muscular because it would be an injustice. Like calling Samson a bodybuilder.
   This man looks like he could hoist Bruce over his head without breaking a sweat.
   Moving my eyes up over shoulders that’d make Atlas seethe with jealously and a thick neck worthy of a bull, my gaze lands on a face. An amused one, with deep manly lines around flinty hazel-dark eyes.
   This looks like a face that’s used to smiling, even if he’s rocking that scary-hot vibe like he invented it.
   Only, right now, there’s a smirk carved on his chiseled face that says he might be insane enough to try lifting a full-grown tiger as a feat of strength.
   Oh, crap.
   If there’s one thing I can’t do—besides let this guy climb inside my head and eat crackers nice and slow—is let him catch on to the fact that I’m hauling around some very illegal cargo, and it’s alive.
   “What kind of trouble are you having?” he asks, his eyes twinkling in the dim light.
   At the moment, breathing.
   Next up, peeling my eyes off him and finding the willpower to mutter more than a squeak in reply.
   His jaw is square, his nose straight, his hair short, but not too short. And his mouth, that smile, it’s—
   It’s officially too much to handle.
   I huff out a loud breath to stop a heavenly fantasy from forming and get my thoughts back to hell. Because that’s where I’m actually at right now, blundering around an isolated parking lot in the middle of the night with a strange man and a not-so-well concealed monster in my trailer.
   Fun times.

He knew I was trouble the instant I showed up with a stolen Bengal tiger.
But Grady McKnight didn’t flinch like a sane person—he took us in.
Bruce the tiger found shelter. I met a hero grump. And Grady got a hot mess.
Namely, me.
Born-to-sizzle single dads and rogue zoologists don’t play nice.

So freaking what if I said I’m his nanny?
We needed a story when his two sweet daughters barged in.
Hiding a contraband tiger isn’t easy.
Neither is pretending he isn’t sending my pulse to pitter-patter heaven.

Cupid, you sneaky little nugget.
There’s only room for one hulking, growly, mesmerizing beast in my life.
I don’t belong at warm family dinners, or in the fortress of his arms.
Saving Bruce is my mission—not falling in love.

This won’t end well.
The longer I stay, the more he grins.
Walls come crashing down.
And my heart becomes willing prey for his carnivorous eyes.
I must resist Grady flipping McKnight.
Even if a scared, aching part of me knows I’m already his.
Even if I know he’s the hero I need…

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Somethin' Kinda Wonderful by Ava West!

Guest Post!

Can you, for those who don't know you already, tell something about yourself and how you became an author?

From a young age, I was told I had the potential for being an incredible author but had no interest in writing professionally until I fell in love with books. I fell in love with romances like Carly Philips novels and mysteries from Mary Higgins Clark. From there, I started forming my own ideas and sharing them with my friends. It wasn't quite fully formed ideas but the people I shared my ideas with demanded more so I started writing which slowly developed over ten years until I had the confidence to start publishing my work.

What is something unique/quirky about you?

When I was a preteen, before I got into writing, I was a figure skater and participated in a sychronized ice skating team that took first place in Nationals in 2003.

What are some of your pet peeves?

My number one pet peeve is when anyone is interrupted in the middle of talking. It had always gotten to me.

Where were you born/grew up at?

I was born in Tomball, Texas but grew up in Houston. Through my life, I have lived in Edmond, Oklahoma and Norton, Massachusetts.

What are you passionate about these days?

I am passionate about my writing, soending time with my family, and binge watching Vampire Diaries on Netflix.

Describe yourself in 5 words or less!

Witty, caring, goofy, and friendly.

What inspired you to write this book?

The main characters, Nikki and Jaxon, both suffer from anxiety and PTSD. These are things that my family and I battle with every day. I feel like it needed a light shined on it. I use my writing to force people to take a look at things no one wants to openly talk about.

What can we expect from you in the future?

I have a mass of books in the works. If you can think of a trope, I have a manuscript that deals with it! My next release will be a dark, BDSM, Age-Gap romance called His To Claim.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Somethin' Kinda Wonderful?

Nikki is a college student, working in the Blood Moon Cafe. She is still dealing with the grief over her mother's vicious rape and murder that Nikki witnessed over ten years before. She has her dad, Clark, and her best friend, Jessica, that she leans on for support until she runs into Jaxon in her cafe.

Jaxon has been struggling to cope with being soul-survivor of a bank robbery gone wrong. He's isolated himself off from the world. He has his friends that care about him and his family but no one quite understands what he's going through. No one does until he runs into Nikki.

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

I enjoyed writing all of the banter. It was so great. I was laughing so hard writing it. I also loved the drama and spreading out the clues to the mystery of Nikki's mom's murder. Writing Jaxon develop as a character was truly heartwarming.

Who designed your book covers?

My cover was designed by Eleanor Lloyd-Johns with Show of Schmidt Designs. She is incredible! She does all of my covers, teasers, and branding graphics.

If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?

Oh, I love this question. Jaxon would be played by Kit Harrington. I love him in Game of Thrones and he has a real Jaxon vibe to him. I wouldn't settle for anyone else!

I would have Nikki be played be Kerri Medders. She is just so perfect!

What is your favorite part of this book and why?

My favorite part would have to be when Nikki and Jaxon have a completely honest discussion about their feelings. It comes immediately after a highly traumatic event for both characters and it makes them more honest and more responsive in Nikki's case. She struggles with admitting her feelings because of past heartbreaks and she's able to push past her fear to be honest with Jaxon. It's a really beautiful scene.

If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

I would absolutely chill with Destiny. She is one of Nikki's coworkers. She's open and honest. I could totally see us getting a drink together. Girls night with my fictional character, absolutely!

Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?

My favorite is contemporary romance. I love work from Ivy Smoak and Jaine Diamond

Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?

It depends on the book. If there is some drama going on, I need silence or my anxiety gets amped up so I can't write and have to take a break. If things are calm, I prefer loud rock music and sometimes dance music. 

Pen or type writer or computer?

It might make me strange but I perfer writing from my computer. I used to be a computer type of a writer but I went without a computer for so long that I learned to write on my phone. Now, it's my comfort zone.

What are common traps for aspiring writers?

I'm halfway between a plotter and a pantser. I have an idea of the main events, more in detail if its part of a series that happens in the same time frame. I will spend a day or two daydreaming--I mean brainstorming! Once I've got all the main plot points and the characters personalities down, I start writing or jot down my ideas in a document to go back to when I'm ready to start writing.

A single event can change the course of someone's entire life. In the blink of an eye, everything is altered and nothing remains the same.

Jaxon Ward had places he was going until disaster struck and the pain was crippling. Nothing helped until he ran into Nikki Bedford. His sister's best friend and the girl he had once terrorized becomes his only salvation.

Nikki is cursed by her tragically long list of failed relationships and fears the same will become of her romance with Jaxon. Can they persevere or will he be another regret of hers?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Trust Me [Manhattan Marriage 0.5] by Candace Hutton!

Brooke Anderson never pictured herself as a divorcee at twenty-eight. But when she mentions getting a post-nup to her husband Garrett after one deliciously sex-filled year, he promptly serves her with divorce papers. Admittedly, she could’ve told him about how her father left her and her mother homeless when she was young, and how she’s never been wired to trust anyone. Especially those closest to her. Now, all she wants to do is avoid anywhere he might be so she won’t have to face him again.

But she’s not the only one who can’t seem to trust.

Garrett Call grew up with parents who married for money and wants no part of a life that puts material possessions above love. He reinvented himself in college, complete with a new last name so he couldn’t be tied to his family’s lucrative business. He never even told Brooke the truth. Admittedly, he could’ve handled the issue of a post-nup better with his ex-wife. Maybe he didn’t count on how much he was going to miss having her in his life.

When their best friends’ wedding forces the exes to see each other again, a dangerous man from Garrett’s world threatens Brooke’s life. And they realize the only way to save themselves is to finally learn to trust each other.

The line between savior and villain draws extraordinarily thin.

Three years after her parents' unsolved murders, Gabriella Latham faces the most critical decision of her life—choosing between two exceptionally different men. Who can she unequivocally trust? Who does she ultimately love?

Adrian Morningstar was once a dream come true. No one had ever loved her more, and for the first time, in longer than she could remember, she was no longer alone. He was the Prince Charming to her Cinderella until suddenly he became the Beast with whom she desperately wished to escape.

He changed everything.

When undercover agent Rafe Matthews infiltrated Morningstar's life, he hadn't planned on infiltrating Gabriella's heart. Nothing could get in the way of exposing Adrian's treachery. Except just as he was about to enact his plan, it derailed faster than a runaway freight train by falling for the boss's woman.

She changed everything.

Now her future hangs in the balance. One man seeks her submission; the other craves her salvation. Both vow to love her with an all-consuming passion. And Gabriella continues to discover nothing is quite as it seems.
As time threatens to run out, Gabriella and Rafe embark on a race to uncover Adrian and her parents' truth. When all is revealed, will it finally set them free or burn everything to the ground?

Secrets revealed. Truth uncovered. Lives and hearts betrayed.
