BLURB

Demons so deep they destroy us… 

Every part of Adrian Ivanov is pure, unable to ignore, male virility. He’s arrogant. Protective. Sweet and intensely attentive. On rare occasions, outright vicious.

If only his soul weren’t tortured over who he is and what he has become. It makes him hide it all from me, proclaiming the truth will ruin us. No matter how much I insist anything he confesses won’t deter my heart, his ghosts won’t allow him.

But they aren’t apparitions. The present collides with the past in a dangerous and twisted game he doesn’t even know he’s a pawn in. It causes everything in our future to remain in jeopardy.

There’s a choice, yet nothing hard in life comes without consequences.

He’s my vicious protector…

Vicious Protector is the jaw-dropping fourth installment of the Mafia Wars series. It’s an interconnecting stand-alone Dark Mafia Romance, guaranteed to have an HEA.

Title: SAINT

Series: Kings of Carnage MC – Prospects #1

Author: Nicole James

Genre: MC Romantic Suspense

Release Date: June 15, 2021

BLURB

She’s a favor, a debt I owe—that’s all.

Kami—

I’m no longer the little girl he once knew, one who believed in fairy tales.

And he’s no longer the white knight I believed him to be.

How can he be when he shows up on a black Harley wearing leather and biker boots?

I didn’t want this, but the decision is out of my control.

Now I’m his.

I have to remember this is only temporary.

I can’t let the way his predatory gaze sets fire to my body fool me.

Because I’m just a debt he’s paying, and I can’t risk my heart by letting myself believe it can ever be more.

Not with a man like him.

He’s dangerous, and only focused on one thing—securing his place with the baddest MC in town.

He’s no longer the boy I remember when I was nine years old—the one who helped me when I got stuck in a tree. The one who climbed up, wrapped an arm around me and hauled me down to safety, calling me short cake.

He was my savior then—a childish crush—but we’re no longer children.

Now he’s a stranger.

Now he’s my husband.

Saint—

I took her with me because I had no choice.

If I owe a debt, I pay it.

I owed her mother a favor, but I never expected the repayment to include marrying her seventeen-year-old daughter. When she begs me to take Kami with me to protect her, do I have a choice?

Besides, it’s only temporary. Just until she turns eighteen.

Only 90 days to go.

I can resist her that long, right?

Release Date: June 1, 2021

BLURB

A tormented soul on the verge of breaking… 

The night we met, I joked about being his cougar. He said it depended on how much I could handle. Nothing prepared me for how Sergey Ivanov turned my world upside down.

Borderline scandalous describes the things he introduces me to. Every limit I reach, he knows to back off or keep pushing. Each sinful touch is a catalyst for greedy desire I never knew existed within me.

Once I step into his world, it’s impossible to get out. There’s no retreating from him. It’s a magnetic pull swirling with pain and kindness unable to be defined.

The world views him as strong and intimidating. I see love and demons he never should have been exposed to but can’t escape. Even when he thinks it’s safe, it never really is.

He’s my cruel enforcer…

Cruel Enforcer is the jaw-dropping third installment of the Mafia Wars series. It’s an interconnecting stand-alone Dark Mafia Romance, guaranteed to have an HEA.

The Silencer by RC Boldt is now live!

USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt brings us an unforgettable tale of betrayal, vengeance, and redemption in her new romantic thriller, THE SILENCER…

Then a by-the-book FBI agent–one as astute as he is handsome–threatens my plans…and what’s left of my heart.
He doesn’t believe there are exceptions to breaking the law. That’s where we differ.
They once silenced me and countless others, but now I’ve reversed our roles.
Because, this time, it’s my turn to be the silencer.

Release Blitz with Review: Here With Me by Samantha Young

Here With Me by Samantha Young is now live!

Settled in the tranquil remoteness of the Scottish Highlands, Ardnoch Estate caters to the rich and famous. It is as unattainable and as mysterious as its owner —ex-Hollywood leading man Lachlan Adair—and it’s poised on the edge of a dark scandal.

After narrowly escaping death, police officer Robyn Penhaligon leaves behind her life in Boston in search of some answers. Starting with Mac Galbraith, the Scottish father who abandoned her to pursue his career in private security. To re-connect with Mac, Robyn will finally meet a man she’s long resented. Lachlan Adair. Hostility instantly brews between Robyn and Lachlan. She thinks the head of the Adair family is high-handed and self-important. And finding closure with Mac is proving more difficult than she ever imagined. Robyn would sooner leave Ardnoch, but when she discovers Mac is embroiled in a threat against the Adairs and the exclusive members of the estate, she finds she’s not yet ready to give up on her father.

Determined to ensure Mac’s safety, Robyn investigates the disturbing crimes at Ardnoch, forcing her and Lachlan to spend time together. Soon it becomes clear a searing attraction exists beneath their animosity, and temptation leads them down a perilous path.

While they discover they are connected by something far more addictive than passion, Lachlan cannot let go of his grip on a painful past: a past that will destroy his future … if the insidious presence of an enemy lurking in the shadows of Ardnoch doesn’t do the job first.

MY REVIEW

I fell in love with Samantha Young’s writing many years ago. Her words always captivating and stories made me fall in love with a country I’ve never been to. So, when I heard about Here With Me, and that we’d be returning to Scotland, of course, I had to get my hands on this book.

Here With Me follows the story of Robyn and Lachlan. After a close call, Robyn leaves her life as a police officer behind and finds herself in Scotland in hopes of reconnecting with her father and finding the answers she desperately needs. However, Robyn reconnecting with her father means coming face to face with the man who kept him away. There’s no love lost between Robyn and Lachlan and some terrible assumptions have been made. But, when tragedy strikes, these two enemies will be forced to become unlikely allies. The quest for the truth puts Lachlan and Robyn closer together. Their hate quickly turns to sizzling passion. Will Robyn find the answers she’s seeking? Will Lachlan and Robyn get rid of the threat before it’s too late? And will Robyn and Lachlan give in to the scorching hot chemistry between them? There’s only one way to find out….

Here With Me is a fantastic enemies to lovers romance. Filled with angst, passion, frustrating moments, and exciting twists and turns, Here With Me will take readers on one thrilling ride.

Here With Me had me hooked from the very first page and I was completely intrigued by Lachlan Adair. I loved how fiercely protective he was of those in his close circle. He was broody and harsh and came off like a jerk most of the time. But there is so much more to this man than meets the eye. Sure he’s frustrating and I wanted to shake him at times, but he had a big heart and a lot of fears he has yet to overcome. He wasn’t prepared for a woman like Robyn. Robyn is tough and can take care of herself. She isn’t easily intimated and isn’t afraid to the right thing, no matter how hard it might be.

When you put Lachlan and Robyn together, all bets are off. These two were the best of enemies. I loved their banter and couldn’t wait for their next interaction. I mean, all that hate had to lead to some explosive chemistry, right?! The road to happily ever after was not an easy one for Lachlan and Robyn. They had so many things going against them, so many reasons to stay away, but I’ll be darned if I wasn’t rooting for these two. Their romance was a slow burn that just left you aching and dying for more. The push and pull was unbelievable. I couldn’t get enough. And the angst! We can’t forget the angst. The angst was absolutely delicious.

Here With Me was everything I wanted, needed, and hoped for. Here With Me is a story of forgiveness and second chances. It’s about enemies who become more than they ever dreamed. It’s a story written and filled with emotion and angst. There’s an excellent mystery whose suspense will keep you on your toes. The twists and turns will consume you. It will keep you guessing, and trying your hardest to figure it all out.

In the end, this story checked off all of my boxes and has me excited to see where the Adair Family Series will take us next.

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

EXCERPT

“Okay.” Brandon slaps his hands together and rubs them villainously. “Let’s go get our palms read.”

“In there?” I point to the double-gallery house behind him. There isn’t a sign. There’s a blue neon light in the shape of a palm in the window, and in the middle it says, ‘Palm Readings.’ Nothing else. No business name or anything. If anything, the building gives me the creeps. It’s two blocks over from Bourbon Street, so it isn’t as busy. It’s dark; the only light illuminating the sidewalk is from the blue glow of the sign.

“Look, this place has got to be legit, right? I saw a flyer at the bar,” Brandon protests.

Michelle is grabbing my hand tight and hiding behind me, peeking out from around me. “It looks creepy,” she whispers, just as the wind blows, causing the wind chimes hanging above the doorway to tinkle mysteriously.

I narrow my eyes at the musical instruments creating gorgeous high-pitched tunes, but the closer I look at them and the more my eyes adjust to the night, I begin to notice something off about them. I take a step forward, the porch groaning as I step onto it.

“What are you doing?” Michelle hisses to keep her voice low so no one inside hears us.

Doubtful, since no one seems to be here.

“How have we lived in New Orleans all this time and not done this? I’m excited.” Brandon goes to knock, but I grab his wrist before he can.

“Because locals fucking know better. Either you dive into the real shit or you don’t. Tourists don’t care,” I explain.

I keep my arm stretched out to keep Michelle behind me. Something feels off. I look around noticing no one else around. The upbeat jazz music has faded in the distance, but the cheers of drunk people can still be heard.

The clonks of hooves tap against the road, which has me turning my head to see a horse and carriage. The loud wail of the chimes rings again, bringing my attention back to the odd shapes. Are those… my eyes widen when I finally see what I think they are.

“Oh my god, are those bones?” I reach up to touch them to see if maybe they feel real, but Michelle stops me.

“Don’t you dare. If they are bones, you could catch something…”

“They aren’t real. Come on.” Brandon runs his finger over what looks like a ribcage. “It’s supposed to be spooky. Gives it the ‘real feel.’”

“Your friend is right, mon cher.” An old woman’s Cajun accent has us all jumping and taking a step back.

When the hell did she open the door?

“‘Dem bones are from a cat. Don’t worry. It was already dead. Did not want to let it go to waste.” She rings the chimes by pulling the spine that sways in the middle and runs it across the ribs to create more music.

Honestly, now all I hear are sad meows.

For years I watched her. Drank her in as she performed in front of an empty theatre, pretending every seat was occupied, the cello settled between her legs as her dainty fingers made love to the strings…one beautiful note after the other.

She thought she was alone, that no one heard her play. But I did. I heard every note, every tune, every vibrato. It drowned out the voices. Silenced the demons. It gave me peace.

I’d hide in the shadows so I could get high on the music that stemmed from her soul. It was entrancing. Beautiful. Utterly hypnotic.

She has no idea that I exist—that I live for the nights she performs for me, and me alone. But she will.

Soon she’ll realize how important she is to me.

My cellist.

My soloist.

My Requiem.

EXCERPT

I tightened my fist abruptly, gripping her hair tight and pulling her head back, exposing the beautiful, delicate arch of her throat, bobbing as she swallowed. My gaze held her captive, her pretty pink lips parted as I brought mine closer, hovering a mere inch away.

“It is our fear that fuels us,” I eased my fingers along her jaw, “our fear of failure, of pain,” I gripped her chin between my thumb and forefinger, “death. Those are the things that make it so fucking important for us to survive. Even if it means exploiting the fear of others by making their worst nightmares come true.” I bit my bottom lip as I studied her, those blue orbs of crystal staring back at me with a burning determination to not. Show. Fear. And by God, I loved it.

“So, let me tell you what not to do in order to survive me.” I tugged her hair in my fist, and she moaned, the sound burning its way to the tip of my cock. “Do not fight me if you want to survive me. All it does is make my dick hard and my control non-existent, and I doubt you’re strong enough to handle that.”

I let go of her hair, and I was sure she’d scramble to the other side of the bed like a scared little kitten with her tail between her legs. But instead, she sat up, not taking her eyes off mine for a second, her cheeks flushed, and upper lip curled with a snarl. Her face was the perfect picture of resistance and contempt. “You don’t know what I can or cannot handle, Elijah. Just because you stood in the darkness and preyed on my life does not mean you fucking know me.”

I wiped at my chin with the back of my hand, unable to stop myself from being amused by her. It was in her bones, in her blood—that primal need to fight.

“You know,” I grabbed the bottle of whiskey, “you remind me of someone.”

“Yeah, who?”

I smirked. “You’ll find out soon, little cellist. Soon.”

Title: The Musician

Author: Bella J.

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: May 3, 2021

BLURB

For years I watched her. Drank her in as she performed in front of an empty theatre, pretending every seat was occupied, the cello settled between her legs as her dainty fingers made love to the strings…one beautiful note after the other.

She thought she was alone, that no one heard her play. But I did. I heard every note, every tune, every vibrato. It drowned out the voices. Silenced the demons. It gave me peace.

I’d hide in the shadows so I could get high on the music that stemmed from her soul. It was entrancing. Beautiful. Utterly hypnotic.

She has no idea that I exist—that I live for the nights she performs for me, and me alone. But she will.

Soon she’ll realize how important she is to me.

My cellist.

My soloist.

My Requiem.

EXCERPT

I tightened my fist abruptly, gripping her hair tight and pulling her head back, exposing the beautiful, delicate arch of her throat, bobbing as she swallowed. My gaze held her captive, her pretty pink lips parted as I brought mine closer, hovering a mere inch away.

“It is our fear that fuels us,” I eased my fingers along her jaw, “our fear of failure, of pain,” I gripped her chin between my thumb and forefinger, “death. Those are the things that make it so fucking important for us to survive. Even if it means exploiting the fear of others by making their worst nightmares come true.” I bit my bottom lip as I studied her, those blue orbs of crystal staring back at me with a burning determination to not. Show. Fear. And by God, I loved it.

“So, let me tell you what not to do in order to survive me.” I tugged her hair in my fist, and she moaned, the sound burning its way to the tip of my cock. “Do not fight me if you want to survive me. All it does is make my dick hard and my control non-existent, and I doubt you’re strong enough to handle that.”

I let go of her hair, and I was sure she’d scramble to the other side of the bed like a scared little kitten with her tail between her legs. But instead, she sat up, not taking her eyes off mine for a second, her cheeks flushed, and upper lip curled with a snarl. Her face was the perfect picture of resistance and contempt. “You don’t know what I can or cannot handle, Elijah. Just because you stood in the darkness and preyed on my life does not mean you fucking know me.”

I wiped at my chin with the back of my hand, unable to stop myself from being amused by her. It was in her bones, in her blood—that primal need to fight.

“You know,” I grabbed the bottle of whiskey, “you remind me of someone.”

“Yeah, who?”

I smirked. “You’ll find out soon, little cellist. Soon.”

Release Blitz: Kansas by K.L. Savage

RELEASE BLITZ

Title: Kansas

Series: Ruthless Kings MC: Atlantic City #2

Author: K.L. Savage

Genre: Dark Romantic Suspense/Organized Crime

Release Date: April 6, 2021

BLURB

Instincts are all we have to rely on. 

And mine were spot on. 

There are a few things I don’t like to talk about in life. 

My father. 

And Kansas. 

I hate him, and I hate that godforsaken state. 

To this day, I haven’t loved because there’s a fear.

An inkling. 

An instinct that I will be just like him

I convinced myself our blood was rotten, tainted, and sour. 

I believe I didn’t have the ability to be faithful or loyal. 

But then after a blizzard, a sailboat washed to shore. 

And she was there. 

She’s here at the clubhouse now. 

Violet Winston. 

A name that matches the fields of lavender of her eyes. 

I have no right to want her. 

I can’t love her. 

I’ll ruin her. 

The more I get to know her, the harder I fall. 

Usually, there’s a calm after the storm. 

But not this time. 

Between her father being a drug dealer.

The drugs hidden in the boat.

And the man that wants his drugs.

We are about to feel the havoc of a hurricane. 

Truths hit us out of nowhere and they hurt worse than a lie ever did. 

Love tests us and rips us open. Friendships are lost. Loyalty is damned.  

I’m not in Kansas anymore. 

But Jersey hurts just the same.

EXCERPT

I wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of whimpering. For a second, I don’t know where I am, but then I hear a soft beep of a monitor and realize I’m with Springs. I glance down, and my nose gets buried in the bush of her unruly, wild, curly hair. I’ve never seen hair like this before. It’s how I came up with the name Springs. Each strand of hair looks like a tightly wound coil or spring. 

Since I don’t know her name, I’ve been calling her Springs. 

She quiets down and settles against me again, and I do something weird, something I’ve never done before, and I’m glad she’s asleep for it. 

I inhale the scent of her hair, and my eyes roll to the back of my head when I smell peaches. I have to hold back a groan and many, many other things that are not appropriate right now. 

I’m such an ass. 

She rolls away from me, and blood rushes through my arm. Static tingles my fingers, and I slide my arm out from under her and then fix the sheet as it slides down her shoulders. She has a small tattoo right under her collarbone, simple, delicate, and sophisticated. It’s a simple flower, a rose. The line work is thin, which gives it a feminine, elegant appearance. I want to lean down and kiss it so badly, but it’s selfish thinking, considering everything she’s been through. I shouldn’t want her like I do. I have no right.

There are a few things I tell myself to stay away from. 

Love. 

And hate. 

I like to be balanced. Being right in the middle means nothing can go wrong. There are no expectations to be met. No promises can be broken. No disappointment can be felt. No love can be lost. 

I live life in the middle for the most part. Personally, I think it’s worked out pretty well, minus being whipped and strung up like a pig for standing up for what I believe in. 

Keeping my desires close to my heart saves me, even if what I want suffocates me every day. 

Even though I want love, even though I want more, and I don’t want to slide between the legs of a club whore, I’m scared. 

What if I’m just like my father? What if what I have isn’t enough, and I’ll want another life, another family? What if his bad blood runs through my veins, and I’m just this piece of shit human being? Maybe I try too hard to be a decent man because inside I know just how rotten I am. 

My stomach growls, yanking me out of my pity party. I rub my hands over my face and look at the time. It’s four in the morning. No wonder I’m hungry. I missed dinner, and that means she did too. 

I sit up and swing my legs over the bed as I stretch my neck left, then right, getting the cricks out. My boots hit the floor with a soft thud, and I look over my shoulder to make sure I didn’t wake her. Her curly hair looks like a huge cotton ball on the pillow. Her body is covered by the sheet and all I see are those curly coils. I chuckle to myself and fight the urge to reach up and run my fingers through her hair.

AUTHOR BIO

K.L. Savage decided they were tired of looking for the kind of books they wanted to read. They had an itch that needed to be scratched, and as every girl knows, nothing scratches better than an alpha.

They write about gritty, alpha males, sometimes their dark sides, and the women they love.
If you have the same itch, their alpha males should fix that.

TRAILER

EXCERPT

His hard erection presses against my spine. “Do you have any questions or objections?” The heat from his breath hits my ear and doesn’t help me form any coherent thoughts.

I swallow hard. “Ummm…”

He flicks his tongue behind my lobe, and my lower body throbs.

I softly gasp and close my eyes, not able to construct any question, never mind speak it.

“You can still get out of this if you want,” he murmurs and drops his hand lower, grazing my slit through my dress while nibbling on the curve of my neck.

I freeze. Do I want to get out of this?
