CS01-BANNERRB-SBPR copy

Sharp writing, layered characters, and wonderful tension flow through this book, along with a super-swoon-worthy hero and a kick ass heroine I just love.” — Elizabeth Hunter, USA Today bestselling author

Code of Conduct, the first in the romantic suspense Cipher Security series of standalones, from April White is available now!

20190718_CS01_Code of Conduct_White_KDP_FINAL

There are three things you need to know about Shane P.I.

1) P.I. is not her last name, it’s her job title,

2) Her specialty is catching cheaters, and

3) She’s a superhuman – kind of.

Gabriel is a security expert for Cipher Security, and a former UN Peacekeeper with a fierce protective streak that finds its focus on the beautiful P.I.

Their attraction is like an elephant in a room full of breakable things, and figuring out how to trust each other with their hearts, and maybe their lives, is the most fragile thing of all.

‘Code of Conduct’ is a full-length romantic suspense novel, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Cipher Security series, Knitting in the City World, Penny Reid Universe.

RELEASE BLITZ AND GIVEAWAY: DOWNFALL by Willow Aster

🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Downfall by Willow Aster is LIVE!!!

Only $.99 for a limited time. FREE on KU!

Blurb

I was naïve to think my marriage to Luka Catano might work.

I was infatuated with him from afar…

Until I met him.

He loved the challenge of his next conquest, anyone would do…

Except me.

A wife was never something he wanted.

Torturous was not a strong enough word to describe how I felt when I was in a room with Luka. Besides hating nearly every word that came out of his mouth, I also drowned with lust every time I looked at him.

At times I thought he might feel the same.

But nothing prepared me for what his family would make me become.

Excerpt

“You’ve outdone yourself,” he says. “Which Eden do I have tonight? Will you bite or will you purr?”

“I could ask you the same thing.”

He holds his hands out. “What do you think? Am I suitable to be by your side?”

“You clean up okay.”

He smirks and steps closer to me, pulling me flush against him. “Keep playing the cool act. I know it shouldn’t, but it gets me so hard.” He presses into me to prove his point.

“Have you been drinking already?” I frown.

“This is me stone-cold sober.”

“So there’s nothing to excuse your behavior.”

His hands go lower and when he still feels my skin, he frowns. His hands go lower still until they find material, which happens to be hugging my backside. He thrusts into me again and leans his forehead against mine. 

“You don’t want to excuse my behavior. You like me best this way. Hot and salivating over you. Admit it.”

I shake my head. “You need to take a step back.”

He exhales a shuddering breath and drops his hands, stepping back. “We’re going to be late. Let’s go.” 

I shiver from the loss of his hands and the chill in his voice. I can’t win with him.

Sticking to the Script, an all-new standalone in the romantic comedy Cipher Office series, from Stella Weaver is available now!

20180715_CO01_Sticking to the Script_Weaver_KDP_FINAL

Steven Thompson had a bad year. A string of mean, kinky (the alarming kind, not the good kind), and crazy dating debacles combined with a boss who appears to be experiencing male-prenatal-psychosis means Steven’s stress levels are high. They’re so high, he’s decided to quit dating and focus instead solely on his job.

Until he meets Dr. Ken Miles.

Doctor Ken Miles is having a fantastic year. His hard work is paying off in a big way . . . professionally. But his social life? Not so much.

Until he meets Steven Thompson.

Steven isn’t so sure about Dr. Miles, but Ken is one hundred percent certain about Mr. Thompson. And even though both men know full well that the key to getting what you want out of life is hard work, they can’t seem to make them—together—work.

Will they ever get on the same page? Or just keep sticking to the same old script?

‘Sticking to the Script’ is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#2 in the Cipher Office series, Knitting in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW AND EXCERPT: ATONE by Cassandra Robbins

ATONE (The Disciples #2) by Cassandra Robbins

Release Date: October 9th

Blurb

I don’t apologize or regret the destruction I’m about to cause. I’m at peace with what I must do… nothing can or will stand in my way. Not even the raven-haired beauty with golden eyes who haunts my dreams.

No one is innocent in the story of my life. Fairy tales don’t exist!

I.Make. No. Excuses.

Everyone needs to atone, and I’m the man who is going to see to it.

My Review

Does everyone deserve atonement?

Is there truly a way to make ‘reparation for a wrong or injury’ that will allow everyone involved to move forward? To not necessarily forget the past but find a way to focus more on the present despite all of the damage done?

For David, it’s taken him nine years to even get to a point where he could consider taking back some of his old life, and even then, he struggles with making amends, with figuring out how everything fell apart and left him and his life a shell of what it was…of what it was supposed to be.

But what he wants is revenge…that’s what he comes back for…too bad another part of his past…a part that he doesn’t deserve anymore won’t give up on him, even when he’s more than given up on himself.

I don’t think broken or damaged are strong enough words to capture just how much David’s life is dictated by the pieces of him that he’ll never get back, by the life that took from him in such a debilitating way. So it makes sense that David is a work-in-progress throughout the course of the entire story; he’s about as rock bottom as one could be, so the process of moving forward, of letting things go, of putting the past in the past is not always a forward movement, which is expected, but through it all, even at times when I thought she should have walked away, Charlie remains, helping to keep David in whatever light she can and fighting against the darkness that seems to always be threatening him and what they’re building together.

Cassandra Robbins crafted her own darker take on second chances – ones that exist in the dark and gritty world of bikers, where death and mayhem reign, and where lives are taken so easily. David’s second chance comes in many forms but the one that has the strongest hold on him is his need to make those pay for taking something precious from him. What he didn’t count on, though, was a girl from the past making a stand in his present, offering him everything he doesn’t feel he deserves, but is too far gone not to take some of what she’s giving him, even if he vowed to never put himself in that position again.

What I love most about MC Romances is the fact that there is always a supporting cast of characters, whether it’s the hero’s biker brothers or the females who surround the heroine, and while this group includes more misfits and hellions than not, it’s clear that they would go to war for each other, go to hell and back, in order to make things right…in order to get what they want…in order to make those individuals or other clubs pay for their sinful ways, even if the core group have their own sins to pay for as well.

The Disciples MC is not a typical brotherhood or club; they’re 1 percenters and they’re unashamed to be who they are, despite society’s view on them. I’m interested to see where Robbins will take these bikers and their old ladies and what that means for readers who are just waiting for their next Disciples’ ride!

4 Poison Apples 

Excerpt

Charlie walks out of the bathroom, breaking my train of thought. She’s almost glowing. My eyes narrow as I inhale deeply.

“You okay?” She looks at me, concerned.

I stand and stroke my cock. It aches only for her apparently. Her eyes zero in on the area between my legs, and I stop before doing something I’ll regret.

“I’m fine.” Grabbing my jeans off the floor, I watch her eyes caress my body as she licks her lips.

“You hungry?” It comes out harsh, but fuck, I’m a man, and if she keeps licking her lips…

“Umm, yes, but I should get home. I have to work later.” Her eyes stay fixated on my cock and abs while she twists her hair on top of her head with a rubber band.

“I’d like to take you to breakfast.”

This gets her attention. Her eyes find mine. She frowns and cocks her head, the sun kissing the side of her face just right.

“You’re stunning.” I reach for her. I need to shut the fuck up. After all, I need to cut her loose at breakfast.

She must be my ultimate punishment. I might as well torture myself with her, saturate myself.

A small smile plays on her lips, and I smell peppermint. She must have brushed her teeth.

“Fuck… we’re going to be each other’s downfall.”

I lean down to capture her lips in a kiss that was supposed to satisfy, not make me crave more. I’m about to pull away when her hand reaches for my cock and I know I’m entirely fucked. I try to pull back, but she moves her delicious body closer, and all my good intentions not to fuck her are fading.

“Bully to the highest degree. Heartless Hero is a must read for 2019.” Sarah, Musings of the Modern Belle

There are rules to being Abigail Crowne’s bodyguard, rules to watching the infamous billion-dollar heiress, otherwise known as the Reject Princess.

Never forget your place, always put the Crowne name above all else, and never, ever hurt the Reject.

Especially don’t torment the Reject.

Even if she is a spoiled brat.

So when an opportunity presents itself to punish her, you definitely shouldn’t take it.

Then again, Abigail loves to be tortured, and I’ve waited patiently for revenge.

I’ll keep her safe… with cruel protection.

Love is off limits with Abigail Crowne, but no one said anything about hate.

Excerpt

“Why are you here?” I asked.

Theo’s knuckle grazed my chin as a smile curled his lips. “Truth or promise?”

I had a thought as he perverted the sweet game we used to play as teenagers.

The thing between us was darkening, twisting, and I should run. Run before I darken and twist with it. I was the Wicked Bitch of the East Coast, but I wasn’t the words they called me. Not really. I liked to pretend I was as callous as my brother Grayson, as cunning as my sister Gemma.

In reality, I was soft. As they said, there was a reason I’d never fit in. I was a marshmallow. Easy to step on. Easier to squish.

So I answered. “Truth.”

Theo smiled, easy and slow. “I’m going to break your heart, and you’re going to thank me for it.”

About the Author

I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide.

I wanted to be a marine biologist.

An actor.

A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase).

One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone.

These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course

Excerpt

Abby

A chorus of agreement rings out around the room as everyone, unanimously, confirms their support.

Adrenaline courses through my veins, and I just know this is it.

The pivotal moment where everything changes.

Where the power shifts and the people in this room are primed to take back control.

I cast a glance over everyone again, and powerful emotion swims up my throat. Before, the guys were fond of tossing out sentiments that they would kill for me or take a bullet for me, and I was skeptical. Especially when everyone in this room has betrayed me in some way.

But that’s in the past.

Because I look at them now, and I know it’s the truth.

I know they are in this with me.

That they want this as badly as me, and they will do whatever it takes to help me reclaim control over my life.

It’s a surreal feeling.

To know I have such a formidable group of guys standing behind me, watching my back, and supporting my decisions. The feeling of empowerment is incredible. Indescribable. And exactly what I need to get me through the weeks and months ahead. It’s not going to be easy, especially the part I have designated to play. But I know I’m up for the challenge with my crew at my side.

We will make it happen.

This time, the bastard is going down.

And there will be no getting back up.
