Book Blitz & Giveaway: Redeeming Rabbit [Dead Presidents MC Book 11] by Harley Stone!



   Eyes sparkling with mischief, she pushed away from the sofa, stepping toward me. “Do you want to see a magic trick?”
   The only trick I wanted to see was my dick disappearing down her throat, but saying so would make me an asshole. Especially since she was drunk. I nodded. “Sure.”
   She smacked a hand to her back, wincing as she overextended her elbow. “Wait. I have too many clothes on.”
   She pulled off her borrowed tee and tossed it on the bed, sucker-punching me with a glimpse of creamy pale skin. Against all odds, I was trying to do the right fucking thing here and keep my filthy hands off her. Couldn’t she help me out just a little? Obviously not, because she reached up her shirt and unclasped her bra. Her breasts shifted into their natural position, hugged by her tightass shirt. Hard nipples tented the front of the fabric, making my hands itch and my mouth go dry.
   She was just… perfection, and she was… fuck. She was removing her bra. Without lifting her shirt, she yanked one bra strap over an arm before struggling with the other. Then she pulled the entire black lace brassiere—it was too fancy to be called a bra—through an armhole and tossed it aside.
   “See? Magic.”
   The real magic trick would be me not devolving into my primate brain and fucking the hell out of her tonight. Just when the situation couldn’t get any worse, she palmed her breasts, lifting and lowering them as she sang some song about milkshakes and atoms.
   And pizza.
   It was the hottest thing I’d ever seen.
   Unable to help myself, I let my thumbs dip under her T-shirt and sample the softness of her skin.
   She sobered. “That’s what I want for my last meal.”
   “Milkshakes, atoms, and pizza?”
   She nodded. Then she shook her head. “I don’t think I’m mentally cape. Cape. Capable of sharing this or any information right now. Besides, there are other things better suited to take up our time.”
   Her hands dropped to my zipper, and my self-control snapped.
   Then she puked all over me.

They say combat trauma can be the noose you hang from, the cross you bear, or the cliff you scale to survive. But I was a f*ck up long before my Army enlistment and the resulting PTSD. Thanks to the veteran MC that took me in, I’m coping with my condition. Mostly.

Until her.

The Complete Package. She’s way out of my league. I shouldn’t have a chance in hell with Elenore, but I got a peek under her hood and the sexy scientist has a screw loose.

Good thing I’m the best damn mechanic in Seattle.

I never once contemplated murder until my sister showed up bruised and bloody on my doorstep. Now, my intellect has overridden my morals to create an extermination plan with a 98.3% success rate.

Relax, I won’t actually kill anyone. Probably.

But he might.

Who knew I’d find a kindred spirit in my self-appointed tattooed biker bodyguard? Rabbit’s alarmingly protective but the most fascinating person I’ve ever met. And the sight of his bare chest just made the lock on my bedroom door spontaneously combust.

A tempest on the outside with a soft, gooey center, he could be the one.

If I’m strong enough to love him.

Release Day Blitz: Without You [Burgers and Brew Crüe 08] by Lacey Black!


I spend my days brewing beer for the popular Brew Crüe Beer Company and my nights devoted to being a dad. Raising a young child with special needs can be tough and stressful, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. He’s everything to me, and the reason I keep going. It’s him and me against the world, and I have no intention of changing that.

Then, Kinsley McGregor walks back into my life.

Letting her go all those years ago was the hardest thing I had ever done, and having her here proves how good we are. Unfortunately, her Nashville life is calling, and I will have to let her go again.

This time, it’s not just my heart I risk, but my four-year-old son’s too.


My entire life explodes on television for the whole world to witness. After my husband’s public affair throughout the course of my very first headlining tour, I retreat to my safe haven: Stewart Grove. I need a place to lick my wounds and figure out my next step, without being under the watchful eye of the paparazzi, and I find it in my hometown.

I wasn’t planning to reconnect the man I left behind, along with his adorable son.

Tucker Dunn was everything I ever wanted before I went to Nashville to chase my country music dreams. Leaving him in Stewart Grove wasn’t easy, but it was the path we chose together.

Now, I stare down the same choices; only this time, the decision will be harder to make.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: I’ve Watched You Die [Academy for Gods and Freaks 01] by Karina Banks!


   Our eyes meet and I forget to breathe. He is the most beautiful man I’ve ever seen. Something about him is hypnotic. My heart races so fast it’s more like a fluttering that makes me dizzy. Everything tilts, but I can’t look away. I don’t want to lose contact with him, even though I know this moment is where the vision ends; the instant life fades from his eyes. I can’t leave him to die alone.
   Any second now, I will wake up from this hallucination, this nightmare, and sob because he’s gone. I didn’t know him. This isn’t real. But this feels so sad. So wrong.
   I hear it then, his last, shuddering breaths, the rattling in his lungs as they fill with blood. The light in his eyes—the awareness—fades, and I am shocked at the difference between life and death. Intensity and—emptiness.
   “No! Don’t leave me.” The sound of my own voice startles me. I’ve thought the words, many times. I never make a sound. I’m always trapped, locked away as an observer.
   I know he won’t obey, and I can’t stand staring into his lifeless face. I’m weak, I know, but this is asking too much. Too damn much. I shudder and close my eyes, will my miserable mind to be snapped away, back to reality, where a lifetime of experience and pure logic tells me I’ll find myself slumped over on the sidewalk, or unconscious in the grass.
   All of this is in my mind. An illusion.
   But I can’t wake up this time. A strange jolt of energy spreads inside me, unpredictable and wild, like cracks advancing across a pristine piece of glass…except I am the thing about to shatter. My insides are as hot as a scorching sun in the desert.
   Heat radiates from my gut to my hands, where they rest on his chest. I risk a peek, afraid I will see them burning.
   A flash of light blinds me. I slam my eyes closed but the brilliant red-orange color chases me into the darkness.

A young woman, cursed. A rebellious prince in hiding. A forbidden love that will threaten two worlds…

There are two main things I’ve learned since my life turned upside down. The first is, if you speak of someone’s death before it happens, you’ll be blamed for murder. The second? If the hottest guy you’ve ever seen kisses you, and thanks you for saving his life, don’t argue.

I watched him die, over and over. So many times. The vision is always the same and there is never one damn thing I can do to save him. I don’t know why I can’t dream about normal things, like going to school naked, or spiders. I hate spiders. No, I’m lucky enough to see strangers at the moments of their deaths.

The only thing keeping me sane is knowing the visions aren’t real.

Until the accident. The blood. He dies in my arms.

At least, I thought he did. But now he’s here, telling me I saved his life. Telling me unbelievable stories about monsters and gods and destiny. Promising to protect me.

If none of this is real, why am I afraid of the creatures hunting me? And if I saved his life, why are the nightmares back, stronger than ever? What is this thing lurking inside me, eager to strike?

I don’t know, but I’m freaking out.

I’m afraid what I think is real, isn’t. And what I know is not, just might be.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: One Bossy Disaster by Nicole Snow!


   “Um, a little help? I can’t get out.” I make another half-hearted attempt to stand up in my kayak and fail comically.
   Shepherd stares at me for a second before he laughs.
   He laughs—a real belly laugh—and it’s a happy sound that vibrates through me.
   Not cruel, either, but warm and understanding.
   There goes my heart again as he strides over to where the waves meet the beach.
   He grabs the front of my kayak effortlessly and hauls it out of the water.
   No sweat.
   No big deal.
   No small favor with bigger muscle.
   Damn, I’ll admit it.
   Right now, I am thirsty as hell.
   I’ve been ogling him all day and he still hasn’t stopped getting hotter.
   “There,” he says when I’m safely on the sand. “Can you get out now?”
   I try.
   I really do.
   But my body simply won’t cooperate.
   I guess my legs forgot they’re supposed to be a flesh and bone team, and my arms feel totally disconnected from my shoulders.
   “This is so embarrassing,” I say, but he just releases the end of the kayak and steps closer.
   “Save it, Destiny. You worked your ass off today and there’s no point in feeling shamed. Even if I’m going to carry you.”
   He bends down, and before I can register what’s happening, he does it.
   Picks. Me. Up.
   As in, I am in his arms right now, damsel in distress style, legs hooked over one arm while his other arm lends back support.
   The world spins as I weakly wrap my arms around his neck.
   And oh.
   He’s almost superheated with exertion through his wet suit.
   The shelter of his arms makes me aware just how massive he really is.
   I’m so used to being the same height as most of the men around me—often taller—but this guy makes me feel small.
   That’s a miracle in itself.
   And he’s breathing harder now.
   I’m pretty sure he wasn’t when he dragged my kayak up onto the shore. His arms tighten around me, drawing me closer.
   I’m not sure I’m breathing.
   Scratch that, definitely not.
   There’s a wild look in his eyes.
   My arms are locked around his neck and we’re so close, I can feel his heart beating so, so fast.
   He isn’t alone. Mine strums like a guitar plucked by a rock star belting out a nasty breakup ballad.
   What is even happening?
   “It’s normal for first-timers,” he says softly, and I blink up at him in confusion.
   Shepherd Foster is never soft.
   ...and first-timers?
   How do I explain that although I’m way younger, I’m not inexperienced. I’ve had my fair share of male attention, though none of the boys I’ve dated have ever swept me up like a storm.
   “Kayaking,” he clarifies, eyeing my blank face.
   Oh, crap.

Trust me, I’m not falling for a human porcupine.
I don’t do older men with baggage a mile long.
Billionaires? Nope, I’m Miss Independence, thank you very much.
And when a man with the emotional intelligence of a cucumber decides to boss me around?
Hoo boy.

Shepherd Foster and I are utterly incompatible.
He still can’t get over the day we met when I questioned Mr. High and Mighty’s judgment.
He’s also holding the key—and the moolah—to my animal rescue dreams.
I’m only putting up with this torture for the cute otters, I swear.

And we’re only camping together so I can prove him deliciously wrong.
My ideas will outshine Seattle’s grumpiest egomaniac.
If only Shepherd’s scowls and barbed words weren’t attached to a body crafted for sin.
I still don’t know how it happened.

Don’t ask me why I let his cruel mouth kiss me into a smoldering wreck.
Don’t remind me that messy nights in Eden with my boss carry a brutal price.
I’m worried I’m feeling… things for a man I desperately need to keep hating.
Because there’s one way this ends if Shepherd damn Foster gets his hooks in my heart.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Echoes of the Past by Ashley Packard!


   “I didn’t have a choice then, but I do now,” I said, with a mixture of nostalgia and sorrow filling my chest as I sat on the bench across from an old bouquet of crinkled, dried flowers. The soft breeze rustled the autumn leaves, leaving a crisp scent lingering in the wind. The sun dipped over the horizon, casting a warm glow against my face as I sat in this place of quietude.
   “Mom, Dad,” I whispered, taking a deep breath, “I miss you so much. I need your help now more than ever before.” I knew that coming here today was necessary – I needed their guidance, I was so confused.
   I sat there and looked around the well-tended lawn and the sun’s reflection against the pond nearby. I kneeled down to replace the old bouquet with the new, trying to avert my eyes, but they were anchored on rereading the etched inscription for the millionth time:
   “Emily & Liam Wilson, Beloved Parents, May they always rest in peace, Forever in our hearts.”
   I could almost hear my father’s voice saying, “There’s no ‘cannot’ in our dictionary at home. I crossed it out, it doesn’t exist!”
   Is that really true, Dad? Right then, it felt impossible. I already had a plan in place, a prestigious job lined up, and now this. A completely unexpected option. I felt a tear run down my cheek and brushed it away with my sleeve.
   Life hasn’t been the same since you dropped me off at Grandma’s. None of us could have predicted what happened next.
   “I think I know what I want to do, but I’m so scared.”
   Memories came flooding back, each one flipping through my mind like snippets of a film.


   “Anna, my dear,” Charlotte said gently, but heavy with melancholy as she opened the screen door from the back side of her house. Anna was hula-hooping and stopped, sensing that something was off by the sound of her grandmother’s tone, and came over to her.
   “There’s something I need to tell you.”
   “What is it, Grandma? What’s wrong?”
   Anna watched as Charlotte fell to her knees, took her hands in her own, tears streaming down her cheeks, and said, “I just got a phone call. There’s been an accident and your parents…I’m so sorry, they’ve passed away.”
   Anna froze. Shock washed over her, as she attempted to grasp her grandmother’s words. Her eyes started to feel puffy and swollen with tears. A whirlwind of thoughts and emotions raced through her mind. How could this happen? It was a vacation.
   Charlotte pulled her in closely as they wrapped their arms around each other. Both acknowledged that neither of their lives would ever be the same again.

Anna Wilson is faced with the prospect of starting her first job out of university. She worked hard for this coveted position not for the prestige, but because it paid well, would make her parents proud, and most importantly, the location was close to her grandmother, her only remaining family.

Accepting this job was a seal of fate according to Anna’s grandmother, who grappled with the guilt that Anna planned her life around her.

After graduating from university, Anna’s world gets turned upside down when she receives the devastating news her grandmother passed away, leaving behind an unexpected inheritance, a chest full of old postcards, and tickets for a trip her grandmother planned leaving in a few weeks.

Anna battles the difficult decision – to stay with the job she accepted, or embark on a journey that could uncover truths about herself and the untold stories of her grandmother’s past.

Release Blitz & Giveaway: Savior [Elements of Abduction 01] by Stefanie Dawn!

Abducted by aliens in the middle of the night, then dumped on a foreign planet in nothing but my flimsy nightclothes.

Any number of predators could have eaten me.

Well, as it turns out, I was—eaten, I mean—by a hulking alien who really knew what he was doing when it came to pleasing human women.

Is he my protector or my captor?
And what happened to the other women I was abducted with?

Something must be seriously wrong with me because I want to ask for his help to find the other women, but even with our language barrier, I find my thoughts drifting. And the way he touches me tells me his thoughts are anything but pure.

I must be crazy. There are dangers on this planet he’s only hinted at, a reason I’m here I don’t know, and yet when I’m with my alien savior, all I can think is when he touches me, I really, really, like it.
