Cover Reveal: Tempest by Ketley Allison
I shouldn’t want her. I shouldn’t crave her.

Tempest, an all-new dark enemies-to-lovers standalone romance from bestselling author Ketley Allison, is coming May 19th, and we have the first look at the stunning cover!

I shouldn’t want her. I shouldn’t crave her.
She’s not safe — especially not from me.

I know the trouble that comes with people running from the shadows. I know the danger of getting involved with those who deal in secrets. I make those problems go away.

Hitman. Fixer. Whatever.

The biggest mistake I made was choosing to keep my little sister and her best friend, Ardyn Kaine, safe after their friend was murdered.

Ardyn is quiet, soft, and fragile. She spends her evenings studying in her dorm’s common room at the historic Titan Falls University — near where they once burned witches. They say the walls of TFU can talk, but I don’t believe in things I can’t see.

All the blood is on my hands, but Ardyn is the only thing that keeps me up at night.
She might hate me.
But I hate her more for the lies I have to tell.

One thing I know for certain — Ardyn isn’t safe from me.

I’m her nightmare.

Tempest is part of the Briarcliff and Winthorpe dark academia bully worlds, but it is not necessary to read any previous books. Tempest can be read as a complete standalone!

About Ketley
Author of Romantic Suspense, New Adult and mature Young Adult novels.

Ketley Allison has always been a romantic at heart. That passion ignited when she realized she could put those dreams into words and her soul into characters. Ketley was born in Canada, moved to Australia when she was thirteen, to California when she was twenty, and finally to New York to attend law school, but most of that time was spent sitting in coffee shops and wine bars thinking of her next book.

Her other passions include coffee, wine, Big Macs, her cat, and her husband, possibly in that order.

My Review

Fans of the Midnight Dynasty Series will be dying to sink their teeth into Monica Murphy’s latest release, The Reluctant Bride. Charlotte Lancaster and Perry Constantine find themselves in quite the predicament, an arranged marriage to a virtual stranger. As with other stories set within the Midnight Dynasty Series, there’s more going on than meets the eye. A web of passion and mystery has been set and will leave readers hanging on each and every word….

The Reluctant Bride captivated me from beginning to end. I easily devoured this book in just a few hours. I enjoyed getting to know Charlotte and Perry. I loved their chemistry and how Perry put Charlotte at ease. They have a ton of potential and I can’t wait to see how their story will play out in the end. Fans of the Midnight Dynasty Series won’t want to miss The Reluctant Bride.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*

Cover Reveal: Crown of Crimson by Karina Halle

Crown of Crimson, book two in the high heat, dark fantasy romance series, Underworld Gods from New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is coming April 28th, and we have the gorgeous cover!

All Hanna Heikkinen wants is to be reunited with her father again. After all, that’s why she ventured into the dark and dangerous fantasy world of Tuonela, the Land of the Dead, in order to save his life. But this time her devotion to her father comes at a cost—her growing relationship with Tuoni, the God of Death himself, who held Hanna captive in exchange for her father’s life. The last thing she expects is to feel remorse at leaving Death at his castle of Shadow’s End without even saying goodbye, and yet he’s all she can think about.

Death has always prided himself on never trusting the living, but Hanna’s apparent betrayal has left a scar fathom’s deep. Vowing revenge on his future bride, and making sure she upholds her end of the bargain, Death sets out across his realm to steal Hanna back, which only fans the flames between them. But Death and Hanna aren’t just fighting each other—malevolent Old Gods are rising to power within the realm, magic is being poisoned, and buried secrets are brought to light, secrets that may cause Hanna to lose everyone she loves dear once again.

Live in KU on release day!

🔥🔥COVER REVEAL🔥🔥

EYES ON ME by Sara Cate is coming April 28!

#PreOrderHere

geni.us/EyesOnMe

I’m a voyeur—it means I like to watch.

And in my line of work, that’s a gift.

As one of the four owners of the Salacious Players’ Club, I’m comfortable on the sidelines. This is what I was made to do, and I work better alone.

Until the day I stumble on a certain cam girl app and find myself watching the one person I should never have watched—my step-sister.

There are three big problems with this.

One, Mia and I can’t stand each other.

Two, she has no idea I’m the man on the other end of the video.

And three…I’m hooked—on the app and on her.

Now, Mia has me wanting and doing things I said I’d never do again, like opening up and getting attached. I’m falling for her, but she’s falling for the mystery man I’m pretending to be.

If I’m going to make this right, then I have to do more than just watch.

But how far will I go to keep her eyes on me?

RELEASE BLITZ

Title: Stolen Soul

Series: Ruthless Revenge Trilogy #2

Author: Kristen Luciani

Genre: Dark Russian & Italian Mafia Romance

Release Date: April 8, 2022

BLURB

He put his ring on my finger and a knife through my heart…

Massimo Marrone is pure evil disguised by ripped muscles and a gorgeous face.

His dark secrets and blackened heart have turned him into a monster before my eyes.

And I’ve become his prey.

He promised me protection, serving another master at the same time.

It was the worst kind of betrayal, and he broke my heart in the process.

Because Massimo is no white knight.

He’s the ruthless mafia prince who was ordered by his father to ruin me.

And then marry me.

Now I’m being forced to wear his ring and be paraded around as his princess as a show of power to our enemies.

Or else.

But I’m nobody’s trophy.

I refuse to be anyone’s pawn.

And Massimo will never own me.

I repeat those words to myself every time he appears in my bedroom to punish me for not being his dutiful fiancé.

My mind screams them out with every smack of his palm, with every brain melting kiss.

He commands my body with his rough touch and dirty, steamy promises.

I resist his devious advances but just being near him makes my entire body sizzle with desire.

And I find myself craving him more and more.

Massimo may be the devil but he is the only one who can save my family.

But how can I trust the man who stole my life to protect it?

COVER REVEAL: Caution to the Wind by Giana Darling

Giana Darling  has revealed the cover for Caution to the Wind!

Releasing: April 29, 2022

Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

Photographer: Lane Dorsey

Model: Josh Mario John

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Giana Darling comes an age gap, second chance love story about a rebel soul and her best friend’s dad who wants absolutely nothing to do with her…

I fell in love with my best friend’s dad when I was seventeen.
He seemed like some kind of heathen god, big enough to kill a man with his bare hands, tattooed with bright, bold images, and weathered by time and a short stint in prison.
Blind to the consequences, I made a mistake that ran him out of town and ruined his life.
Now, he’s back after all these years–hating me more than the day he left.
What he doesn’t know is that I’ve been working to atone for my sins.
I’ve infiltrated the Vancouver Triad that killed his wife.
Always my protector, he decides it’s not safe for me to be in this alone, so he resolves to get me out of the Triad and out of his hair for good.

Blog Tour: Sabotage by Shantel Tessier

Sabotage, an all-new dark stand-alone romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now!

COLTON
Raylee Lexington Adams is my stepsister and the one woman in the world who can make my blood boil.
She’s vindictive, a lot of crazy, and absolutely stunning.
I hate everything about her except for when she’s on her knees begging me to use her as my own personal toy.
We’ve been playing a game of cat and mouse for far too long. We have used each other for our own sick pleasure.
I’ve ruined every relationship my little princess has ever had. A sure way that she’ll come crawling back to me, begging me for what only I can give her when another man fails her.
But I got tired of watching others get a piece of what is mine. So, I did what any rational man would do—I staked my claim, showed the world that she belonged to me, and I’m going to do whatever it takes to make her believe it too.

RAYLEE
Colton Remington Knox is a man I despise but can’t say no to.
He’s what any girl would call a walking red flag. But I’ve never claimed to be a smart woman when it comes to men. Why should he be any different?
I’ve always managed to hold my own against him. But this time, he’s gone too far. Posting a video of me on my knees for him, for what? To brag? Embarrass me? He’s acting like he doesn’t know me very well.
Colt wants to play a game? I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure I win. No matter what it costs me. People already think I have no dignity, so why let them down now?

Excerpt

“Boys.” She greets my friends, coming to a stop in front of me but doesn’t look at them standing next to me. Instead, her eyes stay on mine before dropping to my exposed chest. “I hope I didn’t interrupt you.” Her red-painted lips pull down slightly for a brief second as if the thought of pulling me from a woman would make her sad. But when her eyes lift to meet mine again, a devious smile spreads across her face, telling me how she really feels about what I was in the middle of. “Shouldn’t have shared that video.”

I lean forward, and she doesn’t retreat. No, that’s one thing about this bitch. She’s not afraid of anything. I get close enough to smell the smoke lingering on her clothes from what’s left of my car, and whisper, “That video is nothing compared to what I’m going to do to you.”
