Cover Reveal and Excerpt: Katherine in Gold by J.B. Hartnett

Cover Reveal and Excerpt: Katherine in Gold by J.B. Hartnett

Teaser from Katherine in Gold… “I will treasure that back-handed compliment until I take my dying breath, Katherine.” “Keep calling me Katherine and that dying breath might come quicker than you think,” I rallied, thankful the coffee was bringing me back to my good ole self again. “There she is.” He smiled wide, and fuck him for having perfectly straight, white teeth. Excerpt… “I’m not angry. I’m pissed. There’s a difference.” “You do understand, I was trying to give you some space.” “Loud and clear…dickhead.” “I don’t require space, Katherine.” “And that means what to me?” She wasn’t trying to hide the bitchiness in her tone, but my words had disarmed her commitment to that attitude. “It means that I had a conversation with a friend who helped…guide me, and if you feel that the time is now, I will eventually find someone to take over my lease, and your… Read more »

Excerpt: Strike by Heather C. Leigh

Excerpt: Strike by Heather C. Leigh

EXCERPT: Kate’s POV Before I can blink, Dax’s huge, calloused hands are framing my face and his mouth brushes across mine. At first it’s just a whisper, a tease, the contact barely there. Then, I hear him inhale sharply and his lips press down forcefully, melding with mine, urging me to open up with quick flicks of his tongue. I melt against his solid body as he dominates the kiss, completely under his spell to do with as he wishes. It seems to go on and on—a small slice of paradise in this blighted spot of East London. When he finally pulls back, greedily stealing a few more nips at my mouth, he closes his eyes and moans. “I knew you’d taste like heaven. You’re an angel, I just knew it.” His voice is so quiet I wonder if he meant to say it out loud. Naturally, I stand there… Read more »

$50 GIVEAWAY and COVER REVEAL: Wasted Lust by JA Huss

$50 GIVEAWAY and COVER REVEAL: Wasted Lust by JA Huss

EXCERPT JAX “Let’s talk about kissing.” “What,” Sasha laughs. “Kissing?” I smile with her. Both at her willingness to drop the topic of money and where it comes from and her pleasure at the new topic. “Specifically, the kisses we’ve shared.” “We haven’t shared any kisses, Agent Jax.” But she says it with a sly grin as she lifts the glass of Tokay and takes a sip. I watch her throat as she swallows, and then wish I could lick the sweet sheen of sugar left over on her lips before her tongue darts out to swipe it away. I scoot closer to her on the curve of the bench and while she remains seated in her spot, her upper body instinctively pulls back from my approach. “You liked it though.” “I didn’t actually,” she says. Her pupils are dilating before my eyes and her breathing picks up a notch…. Read more »

$250 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway and Excerpt: Sweet Ache by K Bromberg

EXCERPT: Hawkin Well, shit. Guess there’s not going to be any calm before the next storm. I look at my brother and sigh. I hit the road, drive for what feels like hours. I don’t know where I’m going or what I’m looking to find, but as long as I keep moving, my past can’t catch up to me. At least it’s a good idea in theory because I can’t outrun this shit. The stuff I want to and the stuff I don’t want to. I end up the one place I used to go to be alone, to think, and as I stare at the Hollywood sign from my seat on the grass at the Griffith Park Observatory, I love the feeling that I’m this little person in this big world. The idea comforts me some. The notion that on the grand scale of things my problems are minute…. Read more »

Bomb and Guns…why Spencer Shrike is my top Book boyfriend

Bomb and Guns…why Spencer Shrike is my top Book boyfriend

This week NAA took place in a blog hop that focused on Spencer Shrike and Veronica Vaughn. Here’s my final thoughts and recap…. bear with me…After all, Spencer is the one for me! I’m 100% invested in ALL the characters from the Rook and Ronin series. I’m so invested that I’ve become fully delusional in my love affair with my (now) number one book boyfriend-of all time. Bomb is a novella about said book boyfriend, Spencer Shrike. I’ve waited months to get my hands on this book. I claimed Spencer Shrike as my top 2013 book boyfriend months ago after I read the Rook and Ronin series, all three in a week. He was such a charmer in those books that I was beyond delighted when the author told me she was planning a book just for Spencer. It made me have a girl crush on her and I happily… Read more »

Happy Release Day Sabrina Paige! Cannon is LIVE!

I’m in love with this author. I love these stepbrother books. I find myself searching for times in my day to pick it up and continue reading! These are fun, witty, and enjoyable books that I look forward to reading every time Sabrina releases. Check out this EXCERPT: Don’t say that.” I scramble to get my towel wrapped around my body. How the hell am I supposed to think clearly with Hendrix standing in front of me, water glistening on his bare chest? “Don’t say what?” he asks, his voice low. “That my fingers were down your panties? Would you rather I say that I was touching your pussy?” “Hendrix,” I whisper. “You can’t talk to me like that.” “Or what?” His mouth is close to my ear, and he trails one finger up my arm and traces the outline of my shoulder before he slowly runs it up the… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and Happy Release Day Anna Bloom… This Love is Releases TODAY

RELEASE DAY EXCERPT! My former home looked on the very edge of being derelict. The four walls have never provided the warmth and comfort a childhood home should, but seeing it in a state of disrepair, littered with dirty china, lined with old newspapers and filmed in a greasy layer of dust made me doubt my choice of leaving ten years ago more than ever, and my decision to come back. I did the right thing. Didn’t I? You see, I’m the grown up now. Ten years ago I left home, my heart broken, and my ego bruised. With the hindsight of age, I realise my heart wasn’t really that broken, I probably wasn’t even really that in love. For the last ten years I’ve only had room for Isaac in my heart. Isaac is mine. Dragging my mind back from my sadly lacking welcome home yesterday, I keep my… Read more »
