Blog Tour & Giveaway: Tomorrow Belongs To Us by Lily Zante!


   “What are you doing?” His voice is husky.
   “I can't help it.” I slide a finger through the gap between his buttons and hear him suck in a breath. His stomach is rock hard. “Megan.” His voice sounds weak.
   “You've been such an attentive boyfriend.” I stroke his warm skin expecting him to respond. I've come to read him well. He pretends not to care, to act as if he doesn’t want me, as if I don’t matter to him, but one touch, one stroke can undo all his hard-fought composure. He presses his lips together and looks away.
   He wants me, but he’s trying his hardest to hide it. He slowly brings his face towards me again. “You asked me to make them believe. Do you think they believe?”
   I tilt my face upwards. “They believe it.”
   I believe it. Staring up at his face I see the silver orb of the moon high in the night sky. It seems like an ending, or a new beginning. I know what I want, and I want him.
   “But it's only fake, right?” He moves my hand away from his stomach. His eyes glitter under the moonlight. They’re dark, not blue, in the hazy night. I swallow. “It doesn’t have to be.” He is free now. We can fall into this thing headfirst. I'm partway there, back in the thick of all that angst and emotion my teenage hormones riddled me with.
   But now? What now at this age and at this time in our lives?
   An electric charge fizzes between us. It’s so strong that I can feel it even out here in the dark night, out in the open. The voltage sparking between our bodies.
   I wish he'd kiss me.
   I wish he'd make a move. I wish he'd forget what I said to him about not wanting a second chance.
   “We should get back,” he says, quickly taking hold of my hand and leading me back the way we came.

A young woman's life is disrupted when a decade later she crosses paths with the caring high-school teacher she fell in love with as a student.

Lance Turner was there for Megan when she needed him, but his sudden departure left her devastated.

All she wants now is closure, but all he wants is a second chance.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Rescue Me [Frazier Falls Small Town 01] by Kelly Collins!


   Owen splashed water at my head. I returned the favor as he waded over and picked me up.
   “What are you doing?”
   “You can barely stand over here.” He lifted me higher out of the water. “I’m giving your legs a break.”
   “Is that so?”
   “Absolutely,” he replied. “One must be sure not to tire when in a precarious situation.” His arms tightened around me.
   “I’m pretty sure I could out-swim you on a bad day.”
   His brows reached for his hairline. “Is that a challenge?”
   “Damn straight.” I pointed to the copse of trees at the bend. “First one from here to the trees upstream wins?”
   “Done,” Owen exclaimed, immediately dropping me to get a head start.
   “That’s cheating,” I called out before righting myself and working furiously to catch up. It didn’t take long because I was an excellent swimmer. By the time we reached the trees, I was in the lead by several feet.
   He stared at me incredulously as he caught up. “Holy shit, you’re fast.”
   “I know.”
   “You hustled me good, Stevenson.”
   “Hey, I told you I could out-swim you, Cooper. If you chose not to believe me, that’s on you.”
   “What’s my consolation prize?”
   “Why should you get rewarded for coming in last when I don’t get anything for winning?”
   He sidled up to me in the water, gently pressing me against the bank. The barest suggestion of a current sent tiny pebbles ricocheting off my feet, the beat of them accurately reflecting the way my heart thumped inside my chest.
   “I can think of something that might act as a prize for both of us,” he said suggestively, tracing the edge of my jaw with a finger, tipping it to line up my lips with his.
   “How presumptuous of you,” I replied quietly, but I closed the gap between our lips immediately. He tasted of creek water and whiskey. Until now, I’d never have considered that an attractive combination.
   As Owen leaned in and deepened the kiss, running his fingers through my hair and pressing his body against mine, I found I couldn’t get enough of it. Enough of him.
   I threw my arms around his neck, desperate to get closer.
   He wouldn’t be a client for much longer. In a few months, I’d be gone, and unlikely to see him again. It was now or never. I voted for now.

Her company is failing. His plan could save it. Will their partnership move from business to pleasure?

Carla “Carl” Stevenson takes a special joy in running the local timber mill. But when the economy takes a downturn, selling the family business may be her only heartbreaking option. After a prospective buyer takes an interest, she’s horrified by his plans to raze the Frazier forest to make room for cheap cattle farming. To protect her home, she reluctantly turns to the town’s most notorious player…

Owen Cooper can’t believe Carl’s mill is for sale. But the construction company owner is even more shocked that “Carl” is actually a beautiful woman. Moved by feelings he never saw coming, Owen drafts an ambitious plan to save the mill owner’s livelihood… and maybe even win her heart.

Rallying their community around the audacious idea, Owen and Carl find their fates delightfully intertwined. But both their chemistry and the project hang in the balance when he suddenly walks away…

With the whole town at stake, will Carl and Owen save the mill and find their way to true love?

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Fallen Raven [Raven Duet 01] by Diana A. Hicks!


   “You’ve never been kissed before, have you?”
   Technically, I’d never been touched before. I’d never had anyone look at me like this before, let alone kiss me.
   “What’s it to you?”
   He furrowed his brows and dropped his hands to his sides. He watched me with curiosity as I brought my arms around my belly. Tears stung my eyes because I knew he’d say something cruel again. I knew I was going to have to deal with the fallout come Monday morning. I made to leave, but he blocked me, caging me in again.
   “Let me show you how.”
   What? As in, teach me? “Why?”
   “Because I want to.”
   He wanted to kiss me? Or teach me? “Why?”
   “Tell me to go to hell.” He unraveled my arms from around my body and brought my palm to his face. “Say the words. Enzo. Go. To. Hell.” He enunciated every word.
   The raspy quality of his voice was so sexy and hypnotizing; I wasn’t going anywhere.
   “What happens if I do?” I moved my fingers ever so slightly. I was afraid if I did more, he’d shut me out again like before.
   “Then you’re free to go.”

I wanted her since the moment I saw her.
I didn’t even care she’d been promised to someone else.
Then we kissed, and I realized I was her first.
I became…Obsessed

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Submission [Doms of Club Eden 01] by L.K. Shaw!


   "Who do we have here?” A deep, gravelly voice at my right drew my attention. My breath hitched and my body heated when I spotted the sexiest man I’d ever laid eyes on. I’d always been a sucker for a man with salt and pepper hair. Damn, he filled out that navy t-shirt nicely. My eyes traveled his full length before returning to his face. I flushed at the amused half-smile he wore at my perusal. It took me a moment to remember he’d asked me a question.
   “Pe-Penny,” I stuttered, almost breathless as the heat in my face intensified. I don’t remember blushing this much before in my life. Fake it ’til you make it was my mantra. I stood a little taller and attempted to gain the confidence I typically displayed with chauvinistic surgeons.
   “I’m Marcus.” His secret smile remained as he reached out to shake my hand. When I placed mine in his, he squeezed it firmly, and I thought I felt his thumb gently caress mine, but he pulled away before I could be sure.
   “Nice to meet you.” The words came out a little shaky.
   “So, what brings you out to play with us today?” His voice dropped suggestively.
   Maintaining my barely-there confidence, I answered his question. “I’m curious about domination and submission. I figured this was the best place to gain some knowledge.”
   “Knowledge about what?” Marcus asked, showing true interest.
   Everything. I wanted to know what it felt like to give up control.
   To just feel and not have to think.
   To be dominated.
   To have someone fulfill needs I didn’t even know I had.
   I wanted to find my happily ever after, damn it. Sadly, I didn’t know how to express any of this.
   I shrugged my shoulders. “Whatever someone will teach me.”
   “Sweetness,” he murmured, “I’d be happy to teach you anything you want to know."

The moment I laid eyes on Penny, her innocent, submissive nature called to my dominant side. I immediately volunteered to guide her exploration into my dark and decadent world.

I’m also playing a deadly game of cat and mouse with an obsessed psychopath whose goal is to destroy me. When my worlds threaten to collide, I’m forced to call it quits between us.

Soon I discover I’m too late, and she’s caught in the crossfire. Now, I’ll do everything in my power to protect the woman I’m falling for.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Hunter Avenged [Forgotten Brotherhood 06] by N.J. Walters!


   His jaw and cheekbones were chiseled, his forehead high. The short cut of his hair added to the austerity of his features. There was no gentleness to be found. The leather coat he wore added to the rough image, made him seem even more imposing. A chill raced down her spine. This man would be a relentless opponent. He also wasn’t human, but she couldn’t tell what he was.
   Time to leave.
   Face tight, she tried to smile, knew it must appear fake, but it was the best she could manage. “If there’s nothing else, I have to get back to my tables.”
   Her legs were shaky, her heart racing. This must be what a rabbit felt like when faced with a wolf. Running would be a mistake. He hadn’t moved a muscle, but the sense of being hunted was overwhelming.
   You got this. You’ve gotten yourself out of tighter situations.
   The reassurance did nothing to calm her.

It’s taken Viking hunter Sven Knutson six frustrating months to find her. To track down the angel responsible for compromising the Forgotten Brotherhood and waking the drakon. She may be clever. Resourceful. But no one ever gets away from Sven. Ever.

All Rivka longed for as an angel was a chance to serve on Earth and help humans. Instead, it all went impossibly, horribly wrong, and she still doesn’t understand how or even why. All she knows is that she’s on the run—not only from Heaven’s dangerous elite guard, but also from the Brotherhood, who want answers.

She might just have to trust the immortal Viking whose icy blue eyes make her feel almost wickedly human. Because someone wants Rivka dead and the Brotherhood eliminated. Someone powerful enough to take on the most dangerous assassins who have ever lived. Someone who could unleash the fury of both Heaven and Hell…and Rivka is the key.
