Book Blitz & Giveaway: One Night with a Billionaire [Playboy Billionaire Club 01] by Lane Hart!


   “Look, because of this stupid misunderstanding between us, my entire business is on the line. My name. My legacy. My actual damn job. Not to mention that there are hundreds of employees who could lose their jobs if a merger doesn’t happen soon. If nothing else, do it for them, not me! They’re just normal people with families, trying to make ends meet.”
   Damn him for trying to turn this around on me. “How dare you come in here and try to make me feel like the bad guy, you self-entitled asshole!”
   “You don’t know anything about me!” he exclaims.
   “I know you’re a rich, entitled jerk who always gets whatever he wants when he wants it, which is apparently why you refuse to take no for an answer from me!”
   “The check wasn’t me trying to buy sex! It was supposed to be like a big tip, you know like generous celebrities sometimes leave for waitresses,” he explains.
   “I’m not a waitress!”
   “I know that!” he shouts indignantly. “I’m just saying that’s how it was meant. Did I think it would help you change your mind about coming over last night? Yes. But there were no strings attached. You can still cash it.”
   “No, I don’t want your money!” I tell him. Reaching into my shoulder bag, I find the check, ball it up and hit him in the chest with it before it falls to the floor.
   He stares at me with his jaw gaping for several silent seconds, and then he chuckles. “You’re in the process of ruining my entire fucking life, and all I can think about standing here looking at you is that maybe my demise would be worth it just to spend a few more minutes arguing with you. How stupid is that?”
   “Pretty damn stupid,” I agree, lowering my eyes and running my fingertip absently over the peeling edge of the counter to avoid looking at his confusing, handsome face.

Billionaire Harrison Avery always gets what he wants, and as soon as he sees Siena Butler, he’s desperate to have her. Too bad Siena has sworn off all men, especially gorgeous arrogant ones. She wouldn’t date the sexy rich boy for even a million dollars, which is exactly what he offers her.

Harrison never meant to offend the beautiful beach shop cashier when he gave her a million-dollar check. He was just trying to get her attention. How could he have known that Siena was fed up with men and would use the check to try and ruin him.

When Harrison buys up the beach shop where Siena works to pay her back, her opinion of him isn’t improved. But the more time she spends with her new boss the harder it is to keep hating him.

Siena soon realizes that she can only resist the billionaire’s charm for so long. What harm could there be to let herself indulge in just one steamy night with the playboy?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Pierce Her [Come for Me 01] by Kelly Finley!



   Relief dropped the tension in her shoulders when she turned to unpack the rifle. She had to turn away. Away from Daniel Pierce to and her breath.
   What the holy fuck was that, Charlie Girl?
   Her body howled awake at his handshake. At his touch. The first time in six years it had responded to any man.
   As a bodyguard, the sets she worked on accustomed her to being surrounded by beautiful people, men and women. She had seen, hell fought off, how such beauty was as much a burden as a blessing for many of them. She learned to treat them like nobodies. Or anybodies. It was one of the many reasons they trusted her.
   But damn. Daniel Pierce, famously the sexiest man alive, possessed so much exquisite physical DNA it required a full audit. Sure, she had seen him plastered across covers and screens. A sudden flush fired up her cheeks for the solo plea‐ sure she gave herself at the sight of his photo a few times in the past. But that was a screen, a fleeting fantasy. This was him, palpable and in person. And oh, where his staggering bounty of beauty stopped, his sexy charisma raced, lapping her body for the win.
   Damn, Charlie Girl. She adjusted the scope on the rifle. Slow your roll. You’ve got a job to do. A girl at risk.
   And she’d fucking asked for this. Asked Anders where the cast hung out. Wanting to meet each one of them. Off set. In a setting where their guard was down. In a setting where a stalker may betray himself.
   She wasn’t wheels down in Madrid for twenty-four hours, kissing her relaxing trip to Miami with Juliette goodbye, before she found herself jumping into the damn deep end of this job. Right into the ocean of Daniel Pierce.
   And it was raging wet.
   Over six feet of hulking muscles wrapped down a body that famously took discipline and sacrifice to achieve. Black hair fell in soft waves, framing aqua eyes as deep as a cenote, enticing anyone to jump in. Stubble blanketed a square jaw and deep cleft chin. Pillow lips formed a perfect soft bow, almost feminine, until they flashed a white-hot, hungry smile.
   He was cast as Zeus, the god of gods who had no equal, many enemies and could bed any woman in a comic book series turned movie franchise. Two films had dominated the box office in the blockbuster series. A third was rumored. And everywhere Daniel Pierce went, he was “Zeus” to his fans. Charlie read how many followers and press also branded him— “Sex God.”
   Careful, Charlie Girl. With a look like that, you’ll have a lot more to protect than a girl.

She’s the hero. He plays one. That’s why falling in love could be the biggest—and best—mistake of her life…

Former Marine Charlie Ravenel devotes her life to protecting women. A job that’s left its mark on her—body and soul. When she’s not working, she’s safe hiding in the shadows. Alone. But when a young celebrity finds herself tormented by a dangerous stalker, Charlie vows to keep her safe.

One problem. She’ll just have to avoid her client’s sexy co-star—the alluring one who seems so intent on breaking down Charlie’s defenses…

No one really knows Daniel Pierce. They think they do. Millions want him. But no one knows what’s beneath his heroic veneer. He doesn’t let them. Until her.

Charlie, with her arousing smile and razor blade tongue, attracts him like no other. He’d do anything to ease her pain, to make her his. How can he lure her into giving him a chance?

If Charlie has any hope of overcoming the demons of her past in time to save the girl, she’ll have to trust her gut…and Daniel. But what if trust is a luxury she just can’t afford?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Club Mafia – The Contract by Stella Andrews!

They will save me; they will break me.
Not if I get there first.
Rockwell Academy
A place where the demons circle and destiny changes lives.
I was sent to join my twin. To finish my education before fate reaches out and drags me in line.
Freedom is something I crave, but it will never be mine all the time I’m controlled by my father.
I don’t have long–we don’t have long because I’m not alone in this madness.

Five men walk beside me

Sons of the most powerful mafia families in the world.

The Boss - my twin who is my happiness dressed as a knight of hell and God help me if this is what comfort feels like.
The Demon - The man with a corrupt and twisted mind and dark soulless eyes that hold the secrets of Satan himself.
The Angel - A chaotic beauty of saint and sinner combined. Tall, broad, and devastatingly handsome. His hair color is the only light thing about him and the madness in his eyes would make anyone cower in fright.
The Savage - Brutally handsome in a twisted way, rough, capable and a machine with rippling muscles and close-cropped hair. Most women’s dream and every man’s nightmare. The strong, silent type.
Then there’s The Beast – Strong, possessive, dominant.
Loving, dark & delicious.
Demanding, sweet & protective. The one man I want but can never have.

One kiss will change history and one kiss is all it would take to ruin me forever.

I want one night only in his arms.
It will destroy us all.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Secretive [Houston Defiance MC 07] by K.E. Osborn & Addison Jane!

They see me as weak.
Just a scared kid.
The moment my big sister took me away from the club, it sealed my fate as a burden.

As the son of a president for the Houston Defiance MC, I was born into power. I’m destined to lead. My father and older brother before me, I should follow in their footsteps. But they don’t see me that way.

The only path to keep me safe is to ship me off.
To live a life they have chosen for me.
Doesn’t matter what I want.

Behind the ivy-covered walls of Stonewall are mysteries, lies, deception.
I want to uncover it all.
The sting of secrets is to be revealed.

One thing I wasn’t counting on was Thayleah, a fellow student who takes my breath away the second I see her.
But she’s tied to another club.
When enemies come in all forms, you need to keep your eyes open.
But I didn’t see this coming!

There's just one catch. She's the New Boss!

Someone should have told Sam to read the employee handbook, it says it very clearly:
"You cannot sleep your way up the corporate ladder."

This is almost as important as the next unspoken rule:
"Don't Piss Off Management!"

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Damaged Grump by Nicole Snow!


   It’s ten a.m.
   I was supposed to meet Roland fifteen minutes ago, and I’m still slumming around in a t-shirt and panties.
   “Just a minu—ULP!” I yell, tumbling out of bed.
   Legs, meet sheets.
   Legs, get intimately acquainted with sheets.
   Legs, dump me face-first on the floor when I try standing with the sheets tangled around my calves.
   Yep, I basically just hog-tied myself.
   I go down hard, groaning as another knock rattles the door. This time, it’s firmer.
   “Callie? Are you all right in there?” Roland’s voice drifts through the thick wood.
   Oh, boy.
   “M’fine,” I mumble into the pillow that fell with me, thankfully cushioning my head smacking the floor. “Just tripped. Give me a sec.”
   He doesn’t say anything, but his silence whispers skepticism.
   Who could blame him?
   I fight off the sheets, totter to my feet, and dump the bedding back on the mattress before snagging a pair of running shorts from the suitcase I’d left open in the corner easy chair.
   Hopping on one foot, then the other, I shimmy into them, yanking them up over my hips. Then I stagger to the door and pull it open with my arms moving faster than my brain.
   One look at the bosshole makes me realize what a disheveled mess I am.
   We’re talking oversized shirt falling off one shoulder, hanging down just long enough to hide my tiny shorts. Bedhead hair sticking up like a cactus—I’m surprised I don’t scare him—and I don’t even want to know what I look like without my makeup.
   Especially not after sleeping with my face smooshed in a pillow.
   He’s my total opposite.
   How predicable.
   Even dressed down, he looks so cool and collected and put together that he’d wreck a GQ model.
   He’s just wearing a t-shirt and a pair of jeans with thick-soled black workmen’s boots—but it’s a designer shirt, designer jeans, designer boots in fine leather.
   The dark-grey shirt clings to his chest like it’s painted on, pouring over his beastly pecs and dipping down sculpted abs in ridged patterns.
   God. Even the stitching on the short sleeves strains against the rock-hard cut of his biceps like it’s struggling to hold them in.
   Dark, faded jeans hang low on his hips in the right and oh-so-wrong way, held in place by a leather belt that just barely keeps them from dipping down to pure sin.
   A little lower, and I know they’d reveal the narrow V of his pelvis.
   The fit hints at the power between his legs, from his thighs underneath to a piece of him I dare not imagine.
   Not if I want to keep my last worn thread of sanity.

Our meet cute was one big sip of ugly.
He pushed my hell-no buttons, wearing an indestructible smirk.
I offended his warped morals in front of his starry-eyed minions.
Then I got my sweet reward for doing the right thing.
I found out I’d be calling Roland Osprey “boss.”

A filthy rich tabloid king. Emphasis on filthy.
A gorgeous villain who sold his soul—if he ever had one.
A tyrant who stole my sensitive, uplifting music magazine.
Welcome to my bait and switch.

Apparently, disasters come in threes.
His perfect vests that leave me delirious.
The way he stares at my lips—painted for torment with an arsenal of lipstick.
Our shared love for sad songs that makes me cry.
So does the big fat secret assignment he drops on my head.

I hate that he has a good cause.
I wish I could hate the wicked ways he makes me feel divine.
When my guard slips, I’m in free fall.
One all-consuming kiss in an alley seals our epic mistake.
How many times can one damaged grump make me sing the blues?
How do you ever fall out of love with the bad guy?

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Rogue [Black Dagger MC 01] by M.D. Stewart!


   His need to be close to Stevie pushed him to finish his shower quickly. It should have put him off, this over-the-top desire to shelter and protect a woman he had just met. It felt right, and one thing he learned over the years was to go with his gut.
   He stepped out of the shower and dried quickly. He wrapped the towel around his waist then bent down to pick up his discarded clothes when the bathroom door opened. A female gasp had him standing up and turning quickly. Stevie was holding her backpack to her chest and her eyes were trained on his chest.
   “I’m, I’m so sorry, Rogue. I — I didn’t know you were,” she stopped speaking. She didn’t move or look away from him. Her eyes were drinking in his body, her cheeks were pink, and she was nearly panting.
   His body reacted, tenting the towel he clutched to his waist. When Stevie zeroed in on his erection and licked her lips, he made up his mind.
   “Stevie. Look at me.” Her focus shifted slowly, taking in his abs, chest and then meeting his gaze. “If I’ve ever wanted anyone this badly, I damn well don’t remember it.” Rogue’s voice was hoarse and shook slightly. “I know this is happening fast, and I’ll turn around and leave if you ask me to, but please, don’t ask.”
   She relaxed her arms, placing the backpack on the floor then took one step forward. “I want you, I want this. If you were to walk away from me now, I’m not sure I’d survive the rejection.” Stevie took another hesitant step toward him. In this small room, it brought her within arm’s reach. Raising her arms, she traced her fingertips over his stomach. “I can’t explain why it feels right, but it does. Please, Mac.”
   The use of his real name was like pouring gasoline to fire. He dropped his clothes and pulled her toward him. “One of us is overdressed.”
   He trailed his fingers down her arms, stopping at her wrists. He waited a moment to give her time to change her mind. The hem of her shirt was in his grasp as he slowly inched it up her torso.
   Rogue’s fingers grazed her sides. He felt rough, scars on her left side. Stevie made a sound that reminded him of a wounded animal. “I find everything about you beautiful, angel.”
   “But the scars, they’re so ugly. They —”
   “They show you are a warrior, Stevie.”

With a corrupt cop and an escaped killer hunting them, can Rogue do the impossible and save Stevie?

Stevie Anderson barely eluded death when deranged serial killer, Paul Turner, murdered her entire family before setting their house on fire. While in protective custody, she’s hidden where the killer would least suspect — the home of a biker in the Black Dagger Motorcycle Club.
Mac “Rogue” Steele resisted his twin’s suggestion to hide a federal protection witness in his home; until he gets to know the shy but charming woman. With a bruised heart, scarred body, and beautiful soul, it doesn’t take long for Stevie to claim his cynical heart.

After her family’s killer contacts Stevie from his prison cell, Rogue takes her on the run through the hills and hollows of southern West Virginia. Relying on the help of his MC, Rogue desperately searches for a way to keep Stevie alive.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Lightning Crashes by Marla Holt!


   Rachel lifted the quilt covering Nicolas and slipped beneath it. He made as much room for her as he could, but his legs were already hanging over the far arm, his back pressed against the cushions.
   Rachel didn’t need much room as she snuggled into his side, tucking the quilt back around them. “It’s freezing in here,” she said, her voice husky and low, her breath feathering against his neck.
   “You need to check your insulation,” he said. “And probably get new windows.”
   “I’ll get right on that,” she said in a voice that implied the opposite.
   She shivered, and Nicolas allowed himself the indulgence of pulling her closer against him. In the name of keeping her warm. “What are you doing up?”
   Rachel’s hand found his waist under the blanket, her fingers icy against his bare skin, but he didn’t dare flinch, lest he scared her off. “I wanted to see if you showed up. I didn’t mean to fall asleep.”
   “It’s good you got some rest.”
   “More like I sobbed myself to sleep in Naomi’s bed, but yeah, sleep was good. How are you?”
   He sighed, at a loss for words to describe how he was feeling. His face ached, his body felt drawn, like he’d worked out too hard without enough food afterward. Nicolas couldn’t remember the last time he’d eaten. He wasn’t even sure he had a digestive tract anymore. Who had room for food when they were filled with heartbreak and betrayal? Was it possible to be yawning open with emptiness and full of dread and darkness all at the same time? It felt like the same thing, and yet entirely different.
   Rachel’s hand was playing over his torso in a way that she probably didn’t even realize she was doing, but in a way that was distracting, allowing temptation to edge in on the periphery.

The Tower Card: Upheaval, Crumbling Foundations, Chaos, Awakening
The Sun Card: Enlightenment, Joy, Success, Vitality

Rachel Ferrer fled the church when she was eighteen, burying her trauma to chase her dreams, only to have them thwarted when her husband died shortly after their son was born. Now she and her tarot-reading roommate do their best to get by.

Nicolas Rivera should be happy. He answered his call to the ministry and has held a position in the church he grew up in for more than a decade. He’s married and he loves his kids, but something in him has shifted and the life he thought he wanted doesn’t feel like it fits anymore. When his childhood best friend’s widow reappears in his life, Nicolas tells himself that his desire to be near Rachel is altruistic.

Until it isn’t.

Rachel and Nicolas have been on the periphery of each other’s lives for years, but when their worlds collide, attraction sparks, lightning crashes and the walls they have been hiding behind begin to crumble.
