RELEASE DAY EXCERPT: Resist Me by AO Peart

RELEASE DAY EXCERPT: Resist Me by AO Peart

Excerpt ETHAN This was hopeless. I was lost in her; lost in some stupid, naïve, childish dream. What the hell did she have in her that none of the other women haven’t possessed? I was always in control. Always! She shattered my orderly life and turned my neatly composed world upside fucking down! This couldn’t be happening. This had to stop. I wasn’t looking for any changes, for any altered way of living. But here came Miss Different and kicked everything I so meticulously worked for to the curb. I paced around my bedroom, swearing quietly under my breath, clenching and unclenching my jaw. I stopped by the window and deliberately looked at her. She appeared so soft and small, wrapped in that towel. So alone; all on her own out on that dock. Lonely… Stop that fucking nonsense! I chastised myself. She’s a grown woman, not that sixteen-year-old Afghan… Read more »

I got a signed copy of Sex, Love, Repeat (which was a full five stars from me) at Book Bash. Alessandra and I are in The Erotica Consortium together and we were table neighbors that day. Her line was massive! But I managed to pry two books out of her before the event started. I got The Girl in 6E to keep for myself and Sex, Love, Repeat to give away. And since she has a new release this week, I’m gonna give you the Black Lies e-book as well. I have it on my Kindle so I’ll definitely be loving that baby soon. I love two men. I screw two men. I am in a relationship with them both, and they are both aware there is another. That is all they need to know, that is all I let them know. They don’t need to know a name; they… Read more »

$25 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Athena’s Ashes by Jamie Grey

EXCERPT Renna jolted awake as a warm hand brushed against her face. She’d been dreaming again. Of ships and stars and men she’d thought long dead. And right now, she had no idea what was real and what she’d made up in her head. Renna licked her cracked lips and opened her eyes. It took a moment for them to focus on the face hovering above her. A face from her dreams. “Finn,” she croaked. “Shhh.” He smiled down at her, expression full of concern. “Don’t talk, just take it easy. You’re going to be fine.” His fingers brushed a strand of hair away from her cheek, and her skin erupted in goose bumps. If she wasn’t so weak, she’d have thrown herself at him. Instead, she ordered her own hand to touch his. It resisted at first, but eventually it moved and Finn curled his fingers around hers. The… Read more »

$50 GIVEAWAY and DIRTY EXCERPT: FOLLOW by JA Huss

EXCERPT I gulp some air and then look over my shoulder. He’s standing near the concrete pathway, leaning up against a closed concession stand, looking as free and content and in control as any person I’ve ever seen. And why not? Why shouldn’t he feel that way? He’s beyond rich, he’s beyond beautiful, he’s beyond talented, and he’s so far beyond sexy, I’m powerless to resist his offer and he knows it. “Say yes,” he commands. “You want to say yes, so just say yes.” He’s so right about that. I do want to say yes. In fact, I’m a yes girl. I hate telling people no. I really do. But for some reason, this one person who I want to say yes to more than anything else in my entire life has reawakened the no girl inside of me and I’m having difficulty understanding why. “Say yes right now… Read more »

USA Today and Amazon Bestselling author Andrea Smith Silent Whisper (Limbo Series #1) Andrea Smith Paranormal Suspense August 24, 2014   Excerpt I was still distracted as I walked up the concrete sidewalk to my back door, fumbling inside my handbag for my keys. I hadn’t noticed that someone had circled around to the back of the condo, and was a mere six feet away before addressing me. “Karlie Masterson?” the female voice said, causing me to practically jump out of my skin. “I think you might want to listen to what I have to say.” I turned abruptly, clutching my handbag by the straps as if it were a weapon or could be used as one if necessary. “I’m sorry,” the woman said, “I didn’t mean to frighten you.” “Who are you?” “I’m Anna Maria Castellano, Nick’s wife. Can we talk?” Buy Link Amazon B&N   Connect to Andrea… Read more »

$25 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Druid Series 9: Baird by Marata Eros

EXCERPT Altho slides them up the bark of the tree, their clothing catching on the rough bark, his eyes latching onto each Were as they approach. It has been many a season since he was unlucky enough to stand face to face with a werewolf. Something calls them from their reclusive natures. Altho shifts Seraphina’s weight and his hand comes away with blood. Of course—Druid blood is a scent that would bring every supernatural who desires it. “Oh dear goddess,” Seraphina says. “I cannot subdue them.” Altho knows this. She is the natural complement to a Reaper or pure-blood Druid male such as himself. Seraphina can be used by the Were, but it would be sacrilege and the only gain would be an early genetic tie to the Were. Most Druid breeders have only vampiric lineage. However, a small percentage have an ancient tie to the cousin of the vampire,… Read more »
