book blurb

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

I thought selling myself to a mafia boss was noble. So what if they called him the Beast? I grew up in rags, and he would lift me to riches. All I had to do was give him my soul.

He was punishing. Insatiable. Captivating. Nothing like I expected him to be. Each day my reality blurred, leaving me wondering if I was slave or princess.

The longer I stayed, the more I lost myself to him. Even after every cruelty the Beast visited upon me, I longed for his touch. Even after every savage word he spoke, I begged for his lips. I thought the worst thing he could take was my body. I was too naïve to guard my heart.

Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.

Now I know better than to speak of happily-ever-afters.

Beast is the first book in the Hate Story duet. About what it means to fall in love with the person who has absolutely destroyed you, it contains disturbing and graphic situations that may be a trigger for some.

Backpack and a Red Dress

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Goodreads

book blurb

A fresh contemporary romance about a lonely girl looking for love, family and the perfect dress.

Managing a flailing second-hand clothes shop in an English village is not part of Cally Kirkwood’s life plan. But she’s travelled across the world to meet her birth father and she won’t leave until he acknowledges her.

But life happens when you’re busy making plans, and Cally soon finds herself completely invested in converting the grungy shop into a beautiful vintage clothing store, despite the opposition of her new employer’s son, Sam Hunter.

Sam is instantly attracted to Cally but can’t figure her out. There’s something she isn’t telling him and he doesn’t know whether to trust her—yet he can’t stay away.

An unexpected discovery means Cally must decide whether her true loyalty lies with her father or Sam. She thought she’d do anything to find love; but choosing between her past and her future may leave her with no love at all.

excerpt

Sam dropped the rake, grabbed the handles of the wheelbarrow and wheeled Cally at top speed towards the pile of leaves.

‘Wha—?’ Cally’s squeal was cut short as she was tumbled into the leaves. Sam picked up a handful of colourful foliage and dumped it on her, laughing at her look of mock outrage, before diving into the pile to join her. ‘I haven’t done this for years. My sisters and I loved playing in the leaves when we were kids. Dad would rake the biggest pile and we’d bomb it. He’d pretend it drove him nuts, but he loved it too.’

Through the leaves, Cally felt Sam’s hands grab her and he hoisted her up, rolling her until she was lying, stretched out along the full length of his muscular body. His hands stroked down her back, falling to rest on her buttocks. He squeezed lightly, his hands wedging her closer until she could feel his hardness, and a blazing need for him clutched deep in her belly.

She buried her face into his neck, breathing in the tantalisingly earthy mix of garden and leather, licking the salt from beneath his ear. His hands slipped underneath the huge coat, searching for skin, but finding only the frustration of a dress not designed to aid exploring fingers. She laughed, wriggling suggestively, as she kissed him, her tongue wrangling with his, teasing, probing. She knew he was trying to distract her from asking personal questions, which heightened her curiosity nearly as much as it heightened her desire. She wanted to know so much more about him.

Pulling away, she looked into eyes that were strong and sensual. It was too much to hope a man this beautiful could ever really be hers. Even dressed in old clothes, lying in a pile of leaves, he emanated so much irresistible desire.

But she had to fight the attraction, not succumb to it. There were too many complications to their relationship … She struggled out of his grasp, sat up and brushed the leaves out of her hair. They had no future once he discovered who she was.

Whatever personal information he avoided sharing with her, it had nothing on the secret she hid from him.

book blurb

SHE was the Chief’s daughter in a small tribe…

To bring an end to an ancient feud between her tribe and another, Leawyn’s hand in marriage to Chief Xavier was the only way to ensure peace.

HE was the fiercest warrior of them all…

Plucked from everything she’s ever known, and bound to a man she hates, Leawyn must learn to be strong. Each passing day renews Leawyn’s longing to escape, but when a new threat from a mysterious foe puts the tribes in jeopardy, everything changes…including her feelings for Xavier.

Bound between duty and honor, Leawyn must make the decision that could change everything. Can she stay and accept her new life, and her husband? Or is Xavier’s heart too cold for her to melt?

Lines will be broken.

Blood will be shed.

With love being their biggest battle of all, only time will tell, if it will be enough…to make her warrior fall.

Blood will be shed.

With love being their biggest battle of all, only time will tell, if it will be enough…to make her warrior fall.

excerpt

“How old are you?” Xavier asked, watching her.

“E-eighteen summers,” Leawyn stuttered, looking up at him nervously. She knew that he was much older than she, and the knowledge that she was expected to marry him made her stomach clench with sickness. But, Leawyn knew that some girls younger than herself were married to much older men. She told herself she should be somewhat grateful.

“We will be married in three days’ time.”

Leawyn’s body tensed in shock, the icy cold feeling of dread washing over her. “What?” She gaped at him. “We can’t!”

She couldn’t live with this man! This possessive, domineering man who didn’t care if he hurt her.

She shook her head. She wouldn’t marry Xavier. Not after meeting him.

“I won’t marry you,” Leawyn said suddenly, her brows creasing as she stared up at him in determination.

Xavier stiffened, every muscle in his body tensing as his eyes cut to hers. Leawyn swallowed against the urge to run as she edged away from him, catching the dangerous glint that entered his eyes. The glint was that of a predator that caught sight of its prey right before attacking.

She had a feeling that the prey was her.

“What did you say?” Xavier asked, his voice silky and dripping with promised danger.

Leawyn gulped, but then lifted her chin defiantly while staring at him with more bravery than she felt.

“I will not marry you,” she repeated, backing away from him as he took slow, measured steps towards her.

Xavier shook his head slowly, his icy eyes never leaving hers. “I’ll ask you one more time, Leawyn. What did you just say?”

“I refuse to marry—”

Xavier’s eyes flashed furiously, his hand shooting out and wrapping around the back of her neck in a vice-like grip. Using his other hand, he gripped her jaw brutally.

“You will become my wife, Leawyn,” he said in warning. He leaned in, rubbing his bearded cheek against her smooth one. “And if I find out you have let another man between your legs come our wedding night…” She could only emit a soft gasp of pain as Xavier’s grip around her neck squeezed tighter. “I’ll kill you,” he whispered softly into her ear.

Leawyn sucked in a sharp breath, and he laughed humorlessly as he drew back and looked into her frightened eyes.

How had her life come to this?

Book Title: A Face in the Crowd

Author: Christina Kirby

Genre: Contemporary

Release Date: July 20, 2016

Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

book blurb

Alexis Hightower considers trust a four letter word, and she has no intention of getting serious with anyone. After all, her day job as a nurse is plenty serious enough. On one of her nights off, she attends a concert for her favorite band and ends up on stage. She never expected to meet the legendary singer in person or that he would be the one to make her question her way of life. But how do you learn to trust again when the one you want is desired by thousands?

Oliver Honeycutt has it all, success, fame, admirers, but when his family is faced with the unthinkable, none of it matters. Stranded in Atlanta, he meets Alexis who’s unlike any woman he’s known before. As his attraction grows, plans for the future change which leaves someone desperate to keep them apart. But Oliver won’t be easily discouraged. To have a future with Alexis he’ll do whatever it takes to make her see the man behind the image.

excerpt

Lexie’s scream mixed with the other fan’s and echoed throughout the room as Oliver sang the band’s first number one. As he moved from one side of the stage to the other, Lexie danced, arms over her head, as she let go. In the chaos of the noise, the heat of the bodies moving as one, and the music, she didn’t have to think or feel. She could just be.

A hand reached out for her and Simone hit her arm, mouth open in shock. Lexie blinked once and raised her eyes to meet those of Oliver. Up close, he was even better looking than in the magazines. Her heart stopped or maybe it leaped from her chest. She wasn’t sure. As if controlled by a stranger she reached for his hand and allowed him, with the help of two security guards, to pull her up onto the stage.

With her stomach in her throat, she stood awkwardly while Oliver sang to her. This wasn’t happening. It couldn’t be. Survival never pulled people up onto the stage. At least, they never had. But, there he was, positioned behind her, with his stomach pressed to her back. The heat of his skin and hers, melded together, so hot she feared their clothes would ignite.

Her eyes found Simone’s, who peeked out from behind her cell phone where she was recording what promised to be the best moment of Lexie’s life.

She dared a glance over her shoulder and feared she would faint when Oliver offered her a grin from behind the mike. Dear God he was hot. He pressed into her closer and placed a hand on her hip. Red, hot heat surged into her face. The move was definitely one she wouldn’t want her dad to see, but she was glad it was happening. As the song wound down, Oliver moved to stand beside her. Over his shoulder she saw his brother, Bailey, wailing on his blue Fender. The entire experience was surreal. His brother looked up and smiled, but something was wrong with his face.

She narrowed her eyes to get a better look, sure the lights were playing tricks on her. At the same time, he swiped a hand over his face and when he pulled it away, blood was smeared across his upper lip. He went back to playing, but his nose continued to bleed.

Her gaze refocused on Oliver. “Your brother,” she tried to explain over the music.

When he didn’t register what she was trying to say, she pointed.

Oliver’s head whipped around. For a brief moment, his eyes widened and then, as quickly as she’d seen it, the look was gone. Oliver finished the song and led her back to the edge of the stage where she was lowered back into the crowd. When she looked up, he met her gaze. The moment was brief, but she felt it. A moment of recognition between them. One that said he was sad it had to end. She wanted to reach for him, but she couldn’t. Instead, she stood frozen as fans around her pushed in and slapped her on the back. Oliver waved to his admirers and rushed off toward his brother.

Distracting Ace - Book Cover

Goodreads

book blurb

A kiss. A promise. A mistake.

Hollywood stuntman Ace had life changing decisions to make and time was running out. Bleakly, he saw a future of always being different, that was, until he met British beauty Nina Mae. Her enthusiasm for life was addictive.

Rich, party girl, Nina Mae was in love. But a demand to come home early and a simple mistake, changed the course of both their lives.

Would she ever get back to America? Or were they destined to be two people who met and enjoyed one unbelievable weekend, tied by the repercussions of those hours. Or was she simply his distraction?

excerpt

Ace watched her all night, his jaw was aching from all the clenching he’d been doing and he’d wanted to smash his cousin’s face in when he’d gone over and talked to her, when he’d specifically told him not to.

Now, his brother and cousins had gone on to another bar, reluctantly leaving Ace behind when he told them he ‘didn’t need a babysitter’.

All night he’d been remembering the man he used to be. He held the record for getting laid the fastest out of all his cousins, he reflected without humour, remembering the night he’d talked up a woman and was deep inside her up against a wall, in eighteen minutes flat. His cousins had timed him, he remembered. Now he was sitting here, stalking a woman who didn’t know he was here.

Ace didn’t even know why he was torturing himself like this. It wasn’t as though he was going to walk over and talk to her or take her to bed. He rubbed his leg as he continued to watch her dance. God she had moves, he appreciated. He decided he’d get pissed, then go home.

She turned suddenly and looked straight at him.

Shit! Don’t do it, don’t do it. Don’t. F’ing. Do it, Ace thought in a panic. She did it anyway. She walked over to him and he, dumb shit that he was, had nowhere to go.

It Took A Rumor

by Carter Ashby

it took a rumor

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: May 19, 2016

Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

9781530853632

Thanks to a flamboyant, small-town gossip blogger, Ivy Turner’s lily-white reputation has just been unceremoniously muddied. Rumor has it Ivy has succumbed to temptation and slept with one of the Deathridge brothers. Sources can’t confirm which of the four, sexy cowboys she’s taken up with, but everyone in town is weighing in.

Ivy would gladly step forward and defend her good name, except that the rumor happens to be true. Perplexed that her little indiscretion has somehow made it into the public eye, Ivy sets out to find the rumor’s source. In the process, she becomes the unwitting keeper of all the Deathridge brothers’ rather formidable secrets.

Now, not only does she have to keep taking hits to her reputation to protect the brothers, but all these secrets and lies are keeping her from exploring her burgeoning feelings for one of them. But if Jake, Cody, Dallas, and Boone think that Ivy’s patience is limitless, they’re in for a shock. Because when Ivy breaks, she’s taking everyone down with her.

excerpt

Jake was all-out scowling, now. His big arms folded over his big chest. Not many men could look anything but menacing or childish when they were pouting…Jake was dead sexy. His dark eyes bored into hers. “It’s the dress,” he said.
“I beg your pardon?” She sat her coffee mug down. It rattled once on its saucer. She withdrew her hand and folded it in her lap.
“The dress. I know that dress. Intimately.”
“Listen, if you don’t want to talk business, then—”
“If you wanted to talk business you’d be in one of those prissy black skirts with your hair in a bun and your nails all manicured.”
“This is ridiculous.” She turned and started to scoot out of the booth before he could see the heat in her cheeks. But he propped his boot on the seat next to her, trapping her. “Move your big, dumb foot, Jake.”
“Know what I think?”
“Nope. And I don’t care.” Time to get the hell out of there and have a ritual burning of that bad luck dress.
“I think you’re angling for another off-the-books meeting down by the creek. That what you want, Ivy?”
“We agreed never to mention that.”
“You got a lot of nerve wearing that dress in here,” he said with a smirk. “You wanted me to mention it, admit it.”
“Let. Me. Go.”
“I’d be happy to meet you again, you know. Been thinking about asking you out.”
Ivy searched her mind for the low-blow and found it. “It’s not that I’m not interested, it’s just that I don’t think I can spare the two and a half minutes.”
He dropped his foot and his smirk, his eyes widening and the color draining from his face. “That was a mean thing to say, Ivy.”
She snorted as she stood and grabbed her cell phone. “Don’t get your ego in a twist, baby. At your age, there are worse problems to have.” With a wink, she turned and sashayed the hell out of there before he could think of a comeback.

book blurb

She went to jail for the right reason but the wrong murder…

With her mom in the hospital from a recent attack, Kyara has to wonder if her grandmother’s recent release from jail isn’t behind it. Pulled from her quiet, content life, Kyara finds herself on a mission, not only to find out who put her mom in a coma but who just might have a lifetime of secrets to hide.

Snooping into what’s going on, seems harmless until Kyara meets Ryan, and discovers who he really is. Unknowingly, they have stirred up a long forgotten past, one that some will go to any lengths to keep hidden.

Secrets spanning thirty years may never come to light unless they can solve the deadly secret, now buried beneath the golf course and stay ahead of those trying to kill them.

How many more people will die before the lies are unraveled and those who are guilty, decide that killing an entire town, isn’t too far to go to hide their dirty past?

excerpt

When she felt a little more settled she headed back in and almost kept walking right out the front door. She’d only been home two days and already she wanted to run. Getty’s voice though stopped her cold –‘only sissies run, girl’. That had been another one of her grandmother’s favorite sayings, one that Kyara wished she could forget. Stiffening her spine, she turned and headed into the kitchen, the destruction of what she’d done, shocked her. It looked like someone was demolishing the place. She knew she couldn’t stop to think about what she was doing, instead she grabbed her pail, filled it with fresh water and set to scrubbing, behind the fridge. The floor and wall was so caked with grease and dirt, it was like a gummy glue. It felt more like she was smearing than actually making any progress. After the fifth pail of water, she could finally see the yellow and green wallpaper.Someone had drawn or written all over it. Assuming it had been her handiwork as a child, she didn’t bother to really look at, she just moved the fridge back in place.

She moved from the kitchen to the dining room but the china cabinet with all of her grandmother’s dishes, stopped her. She’d never dream of throwing those out, no matter what. Knowing that she wasn’t being fair to her mom and was partly to blame for the sad state of the place, she stepped back and turned. The door to the pantry stood open, almost like it was framing or pointing her in the direction of her mom’s blood, a congealed dark mass that made almost a perfect oval puddle. It wasn’t huge but it carried a punch. She gasped. It didn’t seem real. The truth of what it meant hit her like someone had placed their hand inside her chest and squeezed her heart.

Who would do this to Mom?

Not wanting to go near it but unable to stop her feet from taking her there, she stared down at it. A fleeting thought went through her mind, how do I get blood stains out? As she looked at the spot she was thrown back in time.She was climbing the tree in the backyard, even though she’d been told many times not to. But the one time, she’d scared a Robin, who had been nesting high up in it. The bird had dived at her. Kyara had freaked, jerking sideways, falling off the branch she’d been perched on. She hadn’t broken anything, the branches had slowed her fall but they had also provided her with her first piercings and many scrapes, burns and cuts. Her mom had to have heard her cry and had arrived to scoop her up, almost the minute she’d hit the ground and carry her inside to the bathroom. She’d carefully stripped Kyara’s clothes and cleaned and bathed all of her injuries.

Kyara cocked her head wondering why she’d had that memory. The only thing that came to mind was that her mom hadn’t hesitated, she’d done what had needed to be done.
