$20 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Rumor Has It by Elisabeth Grace

$20 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Rumor Has It by Elisabeth Grace

EXCERPT He started to ease the white vest off my shoulders when I came back to my senses. I knew those period panties would come in handy. I pulled away. “Wait, wait.” “What’s wrong?” He looked confused. His eyes darted from side to side like he was trying to assess the problem. “I can’t do this. I’m sorry. I have a rule.” I was panting. “Can we talk about your rules later?” He moved to pull me into him again. “No. Stop,” I mumbled against his lips. I’m sure he was used to girls dropping their drawers the instant he said go but I wasn’t going to be one of them. No matter how badly my body was insisting I should be. “Ten dates. That’s my rule.” “Come again?” His choice of phrasing had my mind swimming in images of the two of us and I fought to keep my… Read more »

Each giveaway will last one week and each Rafflecopter will be new every day. The spotlight book for today is INHALE EXHALE BY SARAH M ROSS! EXCERPT The laughter, clinking of glasses, and music from the juke box faded away. I could only hear the whooshing of my own heartbeat. I swallowed hard. Grant’s eyes lowered to watch the movement of my neck, and I imagined what it would be like for him to kiss me there like in my dream. To trace the line from my jaw with his finger or tongue down to my clavicle, dipping into that tiny hollow. I forgot to breathe. My leg grazed his, with just the tiniest amount… Read more »

You’ve been absolutely perfect so far.” “I might do something you don’t want me to do.” She smiled and I felt my breath hitch in my throat. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d wanted someone like this. That wasn’t true, I corrected myself. I’d wanted plenty of chicks before. Wanted them so badly that we’d barely made it to… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Sham by Ellen Allen 

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Sham by Ellen Allen 

Extract six: “I can still hear her screams” From prologue: Now Six months ago, my boyfriend was quite a catch. Ask anyone. But that was before the stubbly face, the cruddy clothes, the living rough in the woods. Before the headaches forced him to constantly rub his forehead like he’s trying to remove indelible ink. And way before now where he’s covered in blood, slumped under HOT DRINKS & CAKES on the supermarket café floor. He’s holding her hand. It’s still attached to her body, despite the way her arm has been hacked apart. The artery inside is exposed like a kid’s toy, as if someone just wanted to see the inner workings, replace the batteries. It’s pulsing even after she’s dead; little electric shocks of blood splattering the tiles as if someone is squeezing a carton of apple juice a little too tight. Her hair is plastered to her… Read more »

$50 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Hands Off! The 100 Day Agreement by Candy J. Starr

$50 GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Hands Off! The 100 Day Agreement by Candy J. Starr

EXCERPT “Ha, I win. You landed on Park Lane and I have a hotel on it. You can’t pay. I win. I win.” I’d have jumped up and done a victory dance if I could use my foot. It was infuriating how Chad didn’t even get ruffled when I beat him. It took some of the joy out of it. I wanted him to give more of a sign. Not just a flare of his nostrils but some real loser angst. “Wanna play again?” Chad shook his head. “What’s wrong? Are you scared? Scared I’m going to whupp your ass.” Chad nodded and shot me a grin. “I was thinking of heading to the gym. Board games don’t count as real exercise.” “It’s totally exercise and you can’t leave. What if I need something?” Chad grabbed my crutches from the corner and sat them next to the sofa. “You can… Read more »

KINDLE GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Warlord by Lana Grayson

KINDLE GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Warlord by Lana Grayson

EXCERPT “You’re lying if you say you want out of this life,” he said. I wished I hadn’t stared at his lips. Or concentrated on the baritone threat of his words. Or willed the twisted beat of my heart to slam against my chest. “I’m not part of Anathema,” I said. “No, but it’s part of you. And all the concerts and college loans and temper tantrums won’t get you out of the club. So what is it? Why are you so desperate to leave?” His fingers teased along the too-pink lace of my panties. My cheeks flushed with the same innocence, but I didn’t let him scare me. “Why are you so desperate to keep me here?” He liked that challenge. “If you knew what was good for you, you’d go running back to your big brothers.” “We’re not talking at the moment.” “Maybe you should be a good… Read more »

FREE ALERT- COME – Dirty, Dark, and Deadly Book One by JA Huss

FREE ALERT- COME – Dirty, Dark, and Deadly Book One by JA Huss

X-RATED EXCERPT He grabs hold of my waist again and pulls me into his chest. My arms go around his neck automatically, like I already belong to him. And then he leans into my ear and whispers, “I killed my brother, Harper. I killed Number Five. I shot him in the head and then I poisoned a man to settle a debt for fucking up that job I mentioned in Europe. I’m allowed to kill people if I need to. And I needed to kill both these people. But my bosses were not happy about it. They said I failed the psych evaluation when I came in for the debrief. They said I’m a danger to them, myself, and the world. But since they’ve spent the past twenty years training me to kill, they can hardly blame me for a one-time indiscretion. As long as it was just a single… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel

I pre-ordered this book because it sounded so fabulous when I signed up for the blitz. I haven’t had time to start it yet, but over the holidays, this is definitely on my list. EXCERPT “You were right, Ivy,” [Bishop] says quietly. “It does bother me. The way our choices are taken away from us.” I’m almost scared to breathe. He is confiding in me, opening up to me exactly the way my father and Callie wanted. “Why didn’t you say something right then?” Bishop sighs. “I’m not…I’m never going to be the guy who lays it all out there. That’s not me. Until I really know someone, not much gets out. It’s just the way I’m built.” “Okay,” I say, waiting. If nothing else, I understand what it’s like to have a part of your personality that’s not easy to change. “But it doesn’t mean I don’t have feelings,”… Read more »
