COVER REVEAL : LEVI’S BLUE By M. Leighton

Levi’s Blue

 

Four beautiful days. Three steamy nights. One breathtaking love.

 

Levi Michaelson. He caught me when I fell. Literally.

He wanted four dates. Four opportunities to prove I could trust him. Four chances to change my mind about him.

I agreed.

Probably not my smartest decision. He was everything I knew to avoid—gorgeous, charming, sexy as hell—but I couldn’t help myself. When he touched me the whole world disappeared. I should’ve known I could lose myself to him, that he could be the one man to destroy me.

I guess it’s true what they say—some things are too good to be true. And Levi Michaelson might just be one of them.

RELEASE DAY BLITZ : LEADER By L. Ann Marie

 

Book – Leader (Princes of Prophecy 3)
Author – L.Ann Marie
Release Day Blitz

Hosted by Hooked on books & Cherry0Blossoms Promotions

 
 
 
 
 
Little Ben Knight was
destined to be a leader from the minute he was born. He grew up learning how to
be a good Brother in an MC that believed in making life better in their
community while living their dream by their rules.
 
 It wasn’t always easy but he had good role
models and a President that had a vision of a Brotherhood to be proud of. He
learned how to fight gangs. He learned how to protect their women. He learned
that everyone is useful and worth the same no matter gender or disability. He
learned what ‘all in’ really means.
 
 Little Ben learned what it means to be a
Brother and how to protect that belief. With his own Club he protects those
beliefs with a vengeance. Giving people the ability to live their lives, the
same way he grew up, is what he lives for.
 

 

 No drugs, no gangs and no human trafficking is
what he fights for. Maintaining it is an everyday battle. He’s reached his goal
but life at the top can be lonely. He has known Lily was his for his whole
life. Now he needs to convince her. Lily has heard it all her life but steps
back demanding that same equality that Little Ben fights for for everyone else.
When will he be hers?
 
 
 
 

 

 
 
 

L. Ann started with the Baxters and is working on her third series, The Princes
of Prophecy MC. While her books feature ex-SEALs and Badass Bikers, L. Ann is
writing about the strong women that these men need in their life to help right
the worlds wrongs and help keep their small part of the world safe. The women
are extraordinary, strong and determined to make a difference.

The men fight for right in every book. Yes they kill people. Yes they shoot at
the bad guys feet to cause them pain. Yes they throw tampons at each other
regularly.

That being said, they do these things while stopping human trafficking,
bringing their Club into legitimate businesses, fight gangs to keep drugs away
from their town and kids, keep women sheltered safely while trying to stop
domestic abuse. These are men that don’t leave a Brother behind. They don’t
treat women as possessions and they don’t cheat. Respect takes on an honorable
meaning. Women and kids are cherished. Everyone is looked out for.

L. Ann has made the perfect Club, tackled the taboo subjects and made it easy
to imagine living in a world where your protection comes from the SEALS and
Bikers.With readers writing about rereading the series over and over, she feels like
she’s told her characters stories in a way that would make them proud.

Every book will make you laugh, every book will make you angry for the wrong
that happens in the world. Every book will make you cry for the pain that a
character feels.

Don’t take my word for it. Pick one up and try it out. The Baxters book 1 is
FREE. MC Book 1 is .99. Give them a shot and Happy Reading!

About A PLAYER FOR A PRINCESS (Available September 20th!)

From the Mediterranean to the Caribbean, the game continues…

Zelda Wilder is on the run, this time from the ruthless assassins who’ve decided she knows too much to live.

“Playboy Prince” MacCallum Lockwood Tate isn’t about to let the beautiful player who stole his heart get away—if only he could decide whether he wants to save her or strangle her for her dangerous choices.

After tracking her down to a casino in St. Croix, Cal follows Zee back to Tortola where he intends to keep her safe. One problem: Zelda’s criminal liaisons are two steps ahead of her.

Lives are threatened, and all of the players’ skills are tested in this plot to capture a killer and save a princess.

Cinderella meets Ocean’s Eleven in this CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE DUET featuring secrets, lies, royal high jinks, scams and double-crosses; breathless, swooning lust, cocky princes, dominant alpha future-kings, and crafty courtiers, who are not always what they seem.

Chapter 1: Old Habits

~ Zelda Wilder ~

My heart is beating too fast. Glancing down, I see my hands tremble, and I take a few measured breaths to try and make them stop.

I’ve never been this anxious on a job, but everything has changed in the last six weeks. Looking over my shoulder has become a nonstop addiction it seems.

For the first time, I’m alone with Seth, just the two of us. Unknown hit men took out our longtime partner Helen, and we don’t even know how long ago it was. The radio report simply said her body was found in a bathtub in a cheap hotel in Miami. A plastic bag was over her head.

Clutching my black purse, again I look over my shoulder. Through the neon lights and arcade noises of the Divi casino in St. Croix, I see men in black blazers dotted among the gamblers. Men with curly earpieces in their ears, men with dark brows lowered over steely eyes, men sweeping the room for any signs of criminal activity.

I do another quick sweep, and I realize I’m looking for Ava. Stop that, Zee. My little sister is far away from this life, and it’s because I chose to distance us. I decided her safety is more important than keeping our family together.

The last time I saw her, she was wounded and pale, unconscious in a hospital bed. It tore at my heart to leave her, but at least I know she’s okay. Thanks to the Internet, I’ve been able to keep up with the “developing story” of the assassination attempt on the future king of Monagasco and the shooting of his fiancée, a.k.a., my sister. Rowan has taken Ava from the hospital to the palace, where she’s recuperating under the watchful eyes of his royal guards.

With a steady exhale, I release the nerves, reminding myself it’s for the best. She’s with the man who loves her, who promised to take care of her. If a crown prince can’t do that, I don’t stand a chance.

Still… it isn’t me.

I’m not watching out for her.

As the oldest, I’ve always had that job. I’ve taken care of us since our parents died, leaving us at the mercy of the foster system. I’ve protected her ever since that last asshole thought he’d try relieving his sexual frustrations on a little girl entrusted to his “care.” It was me who’d bashed him over the head with the lamp, grabbed her hand, and run us out of there.

We’d hidden all night in the pouring rain in a concrete culvert, and I came up with a plan to keep us out of that life for good. Passing the baton to someone else—even a future king—hits me harder than I thought it would. My throat aches at her absence, my chest heavy. Stay safe, Ava-bug.

Tonight is the first time I’ve ever entered a place like this without her. Ava is the only person I can count on in any situation. Every security guard in this room reminds me of how we’ve always been a team. If anything goes wrong, I grab her hand and we run, just like always. We stay alive.

Only, I made the deal that changed everything. I shook hands with the devil.

I could argue I didn’t have a choice. We were facing jail time, felony convictions in Florida for grand theft, and while I’d be willing to take my chances in jail, there’s no way in hell I’m letting Ava go to prison. So yeah. Agreeing to work with Reginald Winchester might make me a “bad guy,” but I’d do it again in heartbeat.

A heartbeat…

Squaring my shoulders, I slide a lock of jet-brown hair behind my ear and force confidence into my stride. I make my way through the glittering, noisy casino to my target—a shiny brass roulette wheel—and prepare to start the show.

The last time we worked this con in Miami, Helen had been waiting at the table when I got there. I can still hear her gravelly voice and see her “May Contain Alcohol” sweatshirt. Sadness followed closely by fear ricochets through my insides. Whoever killed her is looking for me.

We were on our way to Tortola to hide when Seth said we should stop in here and bank extra cash. As Americans, we don’t need passports in St. Croix, and we can catch a cheap ferry and slip away in the night to our ultimate destination.

Keeping off the radar is the goal—as always. We’ll pocket a few thousand and disappear unnoticed. At least that’s the plan.

“No more bets!” The dealer passes his hand over the wheel just as I arrive, and I quickly assess the table rules. Minimum ten dollar bet. Decent.

Opening my clutch, I remove two hundreds and pass them to the dealer. He quickly exchanges them for twenty pale blue chips. I’ll join the fray next spin.

Tonight the transmitter is hidden in my shoe as opposed to my cuff bracelet. I’m wearing a strappy black dress that stops mid-thigh, and my black heels show off my legs while hiding the device facilitating our winning streak.

I have to sit with my legs crossed and point my toe to activate it. One dainty point, one shiny silver ball drops right in the tray, predictable at ninety percent accuracy. So far the odds have been in our favor.

We’ll play until Seth gives me the signal they’re onto us. Then I’ll calmly cash out, walk away, and meet him at the pier on Grapetree Point. From there we’ll make the forty-mile cruise to Tortola.

An elegantly dressed woman shakes her head and gives me a bitter smile as I sit. “Don’t stay longer than three spins,” she grumbles.

I smile in response. “That’s the rule, isn’t it?”

“That’s the rule.” Her expression tells me she lost a lot tonight.

As a student of casinos, I know how steeply the odds in roulette are stacked in favor of the House—they’re the worst of any game. The longer you sit, the greater your chances of losing, times a million. If I were giving advice to a rookie, I’d say stick to blackjack. At least there you can use strategy and possibly win a little. Walking away is something I learned early on. You can never be afraid to walk away—even when you’re certain you’re lucky. Luck is the biggest liar of all.

I place half my chips on the black rectangle and watch as the wheel begins to spin. The dealer snakes his hand to the side and releases the ball. It flies around the shining wood with a sharp rasp. I need to lose this round. The job doesn’t start until Seth arrives, and I can’t win for longer than a few spins or it’ll look suspicious.

Another glance over my shoulder. He’s still not here. Casting my eyes down, I watch the wheel spinning, black-red, black-red, black-red, flashing brass.

“Have you been here long?” A man in an elegant suit steps into the space beside me and fishes out his wallet as we wait for the ball to drop.

“I just sat down,” I say without making eye contact. I’m not here to make friends.

He passes a crisp one hundred dollar bill to the dealer. “Then we have no way of knowing if it’s a good table.”

“Sorry,” I shake my head. “I play red or black.”

“Not much of a gambler?”

A glance, and I see he’s tall and thick with dark brown hair and a cocky expression like he already knows the answer to his question.

“No,” I say in a discouraging tone.

No, thank you. Even if I hadn’t left my heart in Monagasco, I never let romance interfere with a job. Well, almost never.

“Logan Thomas.” Mr. Persistent sticks a hand at me.

He waits, and I hesitate. Two first names.

“Regina Lampert,” I lie only barely touching his fingers.

“Regina,” he gives me a nod, but that twinkle of knowledge is in his eyes.

A knot forms in my throat. I don’t like this. The ball drops on black seventeen, and a lady at the other end of the table emits a little cheer.

“You won,” Logan’s voice ripples toward me.

The dealer adds more chips to my pile, and I’m ready to hop up and intercept Seth. A swirl of warmth at my side tells me I’m too late.

Runaway Zelda Wilder will do whatever it takes to secure a better life for her and her sister Ava. Crown Prince Rowan Westringham Tate will do whatever it takes to preserve his small country.

When Zee is blackmailed into helping a vengeful statesman take down Rowan, she never expects she’ll be pulled into a web of lies and international intrigue–much less that she’ll find herself falling for Cal, Rowan’s “playboy” younger brother.

Ava’s no help, as she finds quiet walks in the moonlight discussing poetry and leadership with the brooding future king irresistible. Even more irresistible is kissing his luscious lips.

I proposed on our first date.

She laughed and told me I was insane. Less than a day later, she said yes.

It was a whirlwind, but we were happy…

Until we got greedy and wanted a family.

It was a life I couldn’t give her, not for lack of trying. Fertility just wasn’t on our side. We sought out doctors and treatments. Spent money we didn’t have. Lied to our families. Smiled for our friends. Put on a brave face for a world that didn’t understand.

Finally, we were successful…

Until we were forced to bury our son.

We were left broken, battered, and destroyed.

They say love is in the details, but it was the details that ruined us.

This is the story of how I took back what had always been mine.

The retrieval of my wife and our family.

I fell in love with a man who didn’t exist.

What started out as romance ended in hell.

His words turned to razor blades.

His kisses converted to fists.

His embrace became my cage.

His body transformed into a weapon, stealing parts of me until ultimately….

I broke.

I hated him.

My sole job in life became to protect our daughter.

I wasn’t sure I’d ever escape the prison he’d skillfully crafted from my fears.

Until the day our savior arrived.

This is the story of how I escaped the man who thought he owned me.

The transfer of my life and my family.

No one EVER had a summer romance like this. When Charlie visited another plane parallel to our own, he discovered that Summer Angels and Dark Angels battle over the fate of man. Faced with choices no one should ever have to make, his adventure has been fraught with twists and turns, with life and death hanging in the balance. His guardian, Clarisse, is the half that makes him whole, but sinister forces conspire to do more than simply keep them apart. Find out if they can stand up to the powers that be in this THRILLING MAGICAL ADVENTURE!!! (New adult)
Summer Angel – A Summer Spirit Novella… What would you do if you discovered Guardian Angels are real?
Charlie and his parents had planned a fabulous summer vacation; the last one before he heads off to college. Things go mysteriously awry when the young man meets Clarisse; he finds himself separated from his parents and on a different sort of holiday.
Caught up in a strange adventure with the slender blonde, Charlie learns right away that things are not what they seem. She easily convinces him that her magical powers are real, and introduces him to a world mankind has only dreamt of. Promising to have him reunited with his family soon, the girl takes him on a gallery walk of life, using her abilities to give him a summer vacation he will never forget… and then again, may not even survive.
Dark Angel – A Summer Spirit Novella… Can your Guardian Angel simply walk away?
Charlie and his girlfriend met last summer, after his awakening from a near death experience. Their love grew while his body healed, and after a few short months, he had come to believe she was the girl of his dreams. But Donna has a secret; one she had never intended to share with the love of her life.
While Charlie’s physical being had lain in a hospital, his spirit had traveled to another dimension – her world – where the forces of light and dark collide. When he had returned to the living side of consciousness, Clarisse stole Donna’s body, claiming it and giving herself a second chance at life and love. Of course, people who die are meant to stay dead, and there will be rough times ahead as Keeper, head of the angels, decides how to put things back in order…
Forgotten Angel – A Summer Spirit Novella… Can love transcend death for a Guardian Angel?
When Clarisse took her own life, she wanted to spare Charlie’s suffering at the hands of Gous. He watched her die in a most gruesome fashion, and had to learn to live without the girl of his dreams in the physical sense. Instead, he managed to maintain contact with her, and brought new meaning to the term ‘long-distance relationship.’
In the weeks following their separation, Charlie returns to his home town. A commanding presence, the temptation to meddle in the lives of those around him becomes overwhelming. as does Clarisse’s desire to interfere with his. Tempers flare, and the girl flees, leaving him at the mercy of Gous and the dark path that lays before him. By a twist of Fate, Charlie’s world spins further out of control, and he sets off to find her on what could be his road to redemption. Will their love survive when he discovers the truth about his abilities? Or will the powers that be finally claim their forgotten angel…

Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations anywhere at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.

I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.

Synopsis

 photo front ebook_zpsw7k07jzz.png

Norse mythology meets bikers meets love where it isn’t supposed to exist.

Statuesque, blonde and beautiful, Mist is the epitome of Norse perfection. As leader of the Valkyries, she’s been sent to Walhalla, South Carolina by Odin himself…

The Valkyries’ objective is clear: gather the souls of biker warriors for Ragnarok; the war at the end of the world.

Hammer is the president of Odin’s Ravens MC, and as dark as Mist is fair. He’s going to need help from Mist and the Valkyries to keep the Iron Barbarians from taking over the state.

The Valkyries aren’t supposed to get involved, and Mist isn’t supposed to fall in love. Add in the complications from witches, trolls, and some trouble-making nightmare Maras and Odin’s army of souls may soon have reserves.

COVER REVEAL : HIDDEN By Amelia J Hunter

 
 
Cover Reveal -Hidden – Amelia J Hunter
Book – Hidden
Author – Amelia J Hunter
Cover Reveal – 10th August
Hosted by Hooked on books & Cherry0Blossoms Promotions
 
 
Secrets never stay hidden, do they?
They have a way of creeping into your life when you least
expect them.
Samuel Delaney never expected his secret, his past, his
mother to destroy the man he had fought hard to become.
But when a white envelope with an Irish stamp, containing a
letter handwritten in black ink, arrived on a Wednesday morning, it changed
everything, risking the most important thing in his life – Faye, his soul mate
for the past ten years.
Samuel had boarded a plane thirteen years ago without
looking back. Now, he had no choice but to return and bury his past before it
ruined his future. But he didn’t expect the secrets to run deeper, down to a
rotten root.
Will the discovery of the hidden secrets change him when
Samuel doesn’t want to be changed?
 
 
 
Quotes
 
“Secrets and lies Samuel, we all have them, some are bigger
than others but most we take to our grave.”
“I swear to god if you look at that door again I’ll bang
your head off the bar counter, Sam.” Kirk shouted at him above the Sunday night
local band that asked to play for free for advertisement. “Will you call her
and straighten out your shit.”
“What the fuck you on about?” Cocking his head back while
pulling a fresh pint.
“Shit man, Faye! I think I prefer you passed out on the bed
than being…. distant.”
“Fuck Kirk, I didn’t know you turned into a girl. That’s
emotional shit you said then, do you have your period too?”
“What is an ideal upbringing now days? Crikey Sam this world
is so fucked up on so many different levels that no one knows what is normal
anymore. What is wrong for some is right for others. That, I guess, is what
makes the world amazing and terrifying at the same time.”

Enjoy the Blooper Reel:

In Between: the Novel Excerpt © Shannon Foy 2016

I was nestled on a vintage couch, tucked in a windowed corner of Average Joe’s Coffee Shop, avoiding the claustrophobic trek home out of Boston’s Financial District. I wouldn’t have noticed him had his entrance not changed the air pressure equilibrium, sending dust from the busy street into a spin around polished leather shoes. He took a quiet gaze around the room, catching my eye, prompting a weak but polite smile.

I returned to my book and took a sip from my upside-down caramel macchiato. The macchiato wasn’t upside down; it’s a preparation technique. It didn’t matter though because my curiosity was not to be distracted by coffee. I dared to sneak a peek over the horizon of my book at the tall man in a long coat placing his order and looking my way once again.

Did I have something on my face?

Coffee on my shirt?

Was there someone behind me?

No, Roosevelt, just you being insane.

Focus, I thought, returning to the same paragraph. Apparently the control tower lost contact with the plane.

That was not a metaphor.

Though I tried to willfully ignore the man, he made it much more difficult to do so by pointedly sitting in the maroon armchair across from me.

Focus on the book.

The control tower lost communication with the plane.

But there was a feeling that started at my toes and worked its way up. A buzzing pulsing through the air between us. Electrical energy connecting me to him and him to me. I found it hard to breathe. And difficult to look away.

Say something, I encouraged myself.

Good looking guy, coffee shop—this is how romantic movies start.

It is also how stalker movies start.

It didn’t matter what scenario I was about to engage in because his phone rang, screeching common sense into me, retreating back to my book.

The control tower had lost communication with the plane.

Almost as quickly as he came in, he stormed out, nearly tearing the bell off the door as he left.

Stranger things had happened to me before.

But that was not the only time the gentleman from the maroon armchair and I would cross paths. Of course not.

After work the next day, I crossed the street once again to Average Joe’s.

“Hey, Roosevelt. What can I get for you?” asked Adrienne, the Snow White waif of a barista who always seemed to be working.

“Upside-down caramel macchiato, please.”

“Anything else?”

“Not yet.”

I weaved my way through scattered seating, passing a couple playing Yahtzee. Occupying the same couch in the corner, I pulled the same book from my purse and began again at the paragraph I couldn’t get past the day before. Turns out, everyone on the plane was dead.

I will admit that I never anticipated seeing the gentleman from the maroon armchair again, but I won’t deny that I secretly wanted to be wrong. So much so that I let myself be distracted by the bell of every customer’s entrance and the shadow of every tall man walking outside.

As my coffee was delivered and as the circumstances in my book elevated my heart rate, the moment I had been waiting for arrived.

Such as before, he entered. Long coat. Polished shoes. He crossed to the counter, but this time I did not hide my intrigue. Nor did he. And just as before, he took the seat across from me.

Another polite smile—this one a bit friendlier, with a twinkle in my eye and a bite of my lip. He winked the slightest wink.

The same magnetic tension that reverberated between us the night before continued its drumming.

Adrienne, seeing our slight exchange, delivered the gentleman’s beverage, then continued to my side of the table.

“Do you need anything, Roosevelt?” she asked, eyeing me for some sort of telepathic transfer of information.

“I’m good, thanks,” I responded, wanting nothing more than my unwelcomed wingman to fly away.

And, just as before, the gentleman from the maroon armchair received a phone call.

“Hello?” he began, frustrated. Frustration turned to anger, and anger made him terrifying. His jaw tightened and his eyes fired. I swear his breathing stopped as that buzzing around us began to shudder.

“Who is that?” Adrienne whispered as he left.

“I don’t know,” I answered, watching him climb into the passenger seat of a dark car.

“Wasn’t he meeting you here?”

“No.”

“Huh. He acts like he knows you. Are you sure you didn’t make out with him at a party or something?”

“Pretty sure.”

No, I was very sure. First, I knew the names and life stories of every man I’d ever slept with; and second, I didn’t just make out at parties.

“Well, let me know if he bothers you.”

“Yeah,” I said in a daze.

I heard a buzzing from my purse and grabbed my cell phone. I had a message from a friend of mine, Patrick.

“You know you want to meet me at that Scottish place in 15 minutes,” the message read.

“No, I don’t,” I responded. “I just had the weirdest encounter, and I want to go to the store then go home.”

“You want to tell me all about it at this restaurant while watching two hot guys play music.”

A loud band in a crowded place was the last thing I wanted. But I needed to get out of my own head.

“Fine. But you owe me a drink,” is how I replied.

“Deal.”

A story teller and creator at heart, traversing both performing and visual arts, it is only natural for Shannon to explore a focus on literary pursuits. In Between: the novel, her debut work, is the beginning of this new adventure. She currently lives in Boise, Idaho with her fiancé and her dog, who inspire her imagination more than they’ll ever know.

Review

5stars

I LOVE books with romance, suspense, and angst! This book fits perfectly!!

I fell in love with Ava and her story right away. As the first book unfolded I kept trying to guess where the story was going, or what would happen next. I couldn’t read fast enough!

I can not wait to see what happens next in book 2. I don’t want to give anything away but I am definitely rooting for a certain pairing! *wink*wink*

Definitely a must read! Recommended to all!
