COVER REVEAL: HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS by R.S. Grey

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS, releases November 14th!

See the gorgeous cover below and find out more about HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS!

About HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS 

I’ve spent eight years wishing I’d fall out of love with Derek Knightley. Blowing out birthday candles, chasing after shooting stars, making it rain spare change into mall fountains—every time it’s the same wish: forget about Derek.

But the day he walks back into my life, I realize there are two things time has yet to soften: my feelings for him and his chiseled jawline.

It’s infuriating that my heart still races when he walks into a room. I refuse to fall prey to old unrequited love, so I decide the less I’m around him, the better. Avoidance is key.

Unfortunately, Derek isn’t going to make it easy. As a teenager, I would have crawled on my hands and knees to attract his attention. Now I can’t seem to escape it.

I’m not sure why he’s bothering. He’s not just out of my league—he’s out of my tax bracket. As the sole heir to the Knightley Company, he’s as close to American royalty as you can get. As for me, I’m just a part-time princess at Knightley’s flagship magical theme park.

I spend my days playing make-believe, but Derek has no use for fairytales. His unwavering confidence makes it clear he thinks I’ll surrender in the end.

He’s just biding his time.

Making me sweat.

His Royal Highness always gets what he wants.

And he wants me.

HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS releases November 14th – you’ll be able to preorder your copy for .99c a few days before release!

COVER REVEAL: CHASE THE BUTTERFLIES by Monica James

Blurb

“Victoria, will you marry me?”

Those words changed my life forever…just not in the way it would for most. I had it all until one fateful evening transformed my life in ways I never imagined.

Nine months later, I move to a sleepy little town, hoping to escape the demons of my past. As I attempt to claim back my life, Jude Montgomery enters my world, and things begin to change.

I thought running would appease the nightmares, but I soon discover my past won’t let go. Things are not what they seem, and I begin to question the world as I know it. Jude may hold the answers, but will my love for him blind me to the truth?

Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas? In my case, yes, it does.

Will the truth set me free? Or will it imprison us both?

My name is Victoria Armstrong, and this is my story…I think.

“With heart and heat and a depth we adore for in our favorite reads, James has penned an absolutely stunning novel.” Christina Lauren, NYT and #1 International Bestselling Authors of Twice in a Blue Moon.

“I think,” he said. “Down deep, where your hunger meets your heart, you want to be dominated. You want to submit your pleasure to me. So. Show me.”

The flash of sensation tingled between my thighs with such power my eyelids fluttered. His voice was a sparking fuse that ended between my legs.

“I hate you,” I whispered.

“I know.”

About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

REVIEW: 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.

My Review

Because I’m not new to Willow Aster’s storytelling, I prepared myself for the angst and the journey that my emotions would take as everything unfolded in her newest release DOWNFALL, but regardless of that preparation, my feelings were still all over the place, and like Aster’s heroine, Princess Eden Safrin, I felt confused, disbelieving, and so damn angry about the position she was put in to help her country and her family’s reign, and those negative emotions never dissipated because the way that Luka Catano, her husband, treated her, both before and after they were married, was reprehensible and I never trusted a word out of his mouth, which made it extremely difficult to see past his words and actions, despite the fact that it was clear that Eden and Luka shared undeniable chemistry…too bad most of the time that doesn’t translate into love, especially with a man whose life is dictated by his father’s rule and his family’s best interest.

I’ll be honest…I thought that Eden was a little too innocent…a little too naive; a girl with no backbone simply because she was never given the opportunity to gain one, kept away from society and from her peers, but while I would have liked to see her not runaway and hide so much, the fact that she stood up for herself, attempted to guard her heart from Luka, pulled back when understood some painful truths made me respect her and hurt for her due to the no-win situation she seemed to be in for much of the story.

I didn’t like Luka Catano for a good majority of the story. He seemed like an overprivileged manwhore who found nothing wrong with his callous words and actions or the pain he caused his fiancee/wife. I struggled to find any redeeming qualities in him, which made it difficult to feel like he was what was best for Eden. I do believe that the reason by disdain for Luca overpowered another emotions is because readers saw everything through Eden’s eyes and because her pain and heartache resonated from the pages, I didn’t want anything to do with the person responsible for her mistreatment.

In some ways, it was almost too easy for me to get lost in the angst because of the amount present in the text, and because of the way the story unfolded, it was difficult to see beneath the antics and truly understand who these characters are at their core, especially Luka. There are very few scenes throughout the story line where he doesn’t say or do things that do not paint him in a good light, so buying into a lasting connection between Eden and Luka, when so much of their time together was anything but harmonious made it a bit unbelievable.

I know my review does not paint DOWNFALL in a very positive light, but I will say that the writing was spectacular; the contemporary royal world that Willow Aster crafted is a deceptively beautiful environment – one of secrets and lies, heartache and loss – one that has a menagerie of heroes and villains, of helpers and deceivers, and attempting to figure out who is whom definitely made me invested in the story, even though I struggled with the would be hero and heroine’s relationship.

3.5 Poison Apples

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.

RELEASE REVIEW: DELICATE PROMISES by Kelly Elliott

DELICATE PROMISES

A stand-alone romance novel in the Southern Bride series

Coming October 18, 2019

Blurb 

At eighteen-years-old, I made a promise with my best friend in high school. If neither one of us were married by age thirty-two, we would marry each other. Now Miles Warner is back in town and wants to cash in on that promise we made all those years ago.

The fact that Miles is still unmarried and single baffles me. The young man I remembered from high school has grown into one of the most handsome men I’ve ever laid eyes on. And he refuses to take no for an answer. You see, he needs a bride, and I’m his last resort. Romantic, isn’t it?

Well, no thank you. That is not going to happen.

At least that’s what I keep telling myself. But as the days pass by and Miles settles back into life in our hometown, I find myself falling head over heels in love with him. Again.

What is the lesson I’ve learned, you ask?

Never make a promise you don’t intend to keep.

My Review

I’m a sucker for a romance story that has been years in the making, especially one that started with a promise between two best friends and ended, albeit after years apart and a litany of missteps, with an opportunity of forever. And while nothing seemed to go as planned, not the amount of time Miles spent away from his hometown and the love of his life or the way he couldn’t seem to express his feelings in a way that would make Kynslee believe in his love and trust that he would never leave her again, in their heart of hearts, they were fated to be together, to make a go at a life together that no-one else could given one another.

Because readers are privy to the reasons behind Miles’ decision to remain away from his hometown for an additional five years, we know his true feelings for Kynslee. But she doesn’t know what’s in Miles’ heart because he seems to suffer from foot in mouth disease anytime he tries to prove how much she owns his heart.

Miles’ reasons for wanting to marry Kynslee go way beyond their adolescent promise to each other and her being his last resort is not something that holds credence, but, once again, Kynslee only goes off of all the wrong things he says to her and the pain that she’s carried since Miles first left for the Marines. 

I get Kynslee’s bitterness and her belief that Miles doesn’t truly want to marry her because he loves her, and I can’t say that I blame her for distrusting him, for questioning his motives, for worrying that he’d up and leave her again, but once she let go of some of her pain and fears, she saw Miles for who he truly is and what he truly wants, which made my frustration over their antics a little more tolerable, even if there were plenty of times I wanted to throttle one or both of them.

Second chance romances are some of my absolute favorites because there’s a history between the characters and a foundation that can help heal the heartache experienced. Miles and Kynslee may have needed to work for their happily ever after, but they understood it would be worth it in the end if they could overcome their issues and make their delicate promise all those years ago, a reality.

RELEASE TOUR: The Second We Met by Maya Hughes

 

Blurb

Dear Jerk Across the Street, sorry for accidentally walking in on you and catching an eyeful of your—equipment. And hard pass on the open invitation to join you in the shower “anytime”, A-hole. 

That’s the note I should’ve written. Instead I sent a pleasant and apologetic version. 

Had I known Phoenix “Nix” Russo would’ve been the neighbor from hell, I’d have told him right where he could shove my words. 

Nix is the big man on campus with everyone lined up at his games to make sure he knows it. Sure, he’s got piercing green eyes, abs that don’t quit and a smile that could set fire to a set of panties from a hundred yards away, but he’s also the biggest pain in my ass. 

Dear Pink-Haired Menace, learn how to take a joke and stop being such a kill-joy…

Elle Masterson called the cops on one of my parties—again. My sweet talking usually gets me out of trouble, but this time it got me into a nice pair of silver handcuffs. Now I’m on a reputation rehab tour with a stop at a spring break community service project. 

Guess who’s my new boss? 

Now we’re shoulder to shoulder, sweaty, tired and…she’s not anything like I expected. There might just be a heart under that hardass exterior. She’s invading my dreams and I can’t shake the feeling she’s the key to unlocking a piece of me that I’ve hidden away. 

It’s only a matter of time until she finds out why I’m really here.

Maybe I can break through her walls and into her heart before that happens…one screw at a time.

RELEASE BLITZ: Weight Expectations by M.E. Carter

CO01-RBBANNER-SBPR

Hilarious, engaging and relatable, I started laughing out loud from the first page” — Kristin Vayden, bestselling author

Weight Expectations, the first in the romantic comedy Cipher Office series of standalones, from M.E. Carter is available now!

20180715_CO01_Weight Expectations_Carter_KDP_FINAL

Rian Thompson thought she joined the gym to get healthy. Little did she know she was about to add hundred and ninety pounds of swoonworthy abdominal muscles and arrogance to her life.

Every day in Rians’s life follows a predictable pattern, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s got a nice job, a nice place to live, and a nice family—even if they are a little wedding-zilla-ish at the moment.

She doesn’t need anything spectacular to be happy. She just needs to get healthy—mentally, physically. . . and maybe spiritually if that happens. But she’ll settle for two out of three until her sister finally gets hitched.

Carlos Davies thought his life was perfect. Little did he know it was about to be turned upside down by a woman who is not his type.

In Carlos’s mind, his life is damn near perfect. He’s got a great job, a great place to live, and a great stash of pick up lines that always work. It has occurred to him that maybe no one actually takes him all that seriously. But with these bulging biceps and thick, dark hair, does that even matter since he’s never sleeping alone?

Welcome to Weight Expectations, where great—and unexpected—things happen.

‘Weight Expectations’ is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Cipher Office series, Knitting in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

About M.E. Carter

My name is ME Carter and I have no idea how I ended writing books. I’m more of a story teller (the more exaggerated the better) and I happen to know people who helped me get those stories on paper. I love reading (read almost 200 books last year), hate working out (but I do it anyway because my trainer makes me), love food (but hate what it does to my butt) and love traveling to non-touristy places most people never see. I live in Houston with my four kids, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who was just a twinkle in my eye when I came up with my pen name. Yeah, I’ll probably have to pay for his therapy someday for being left out.
