BOOK BLITZ!! ~ Crashed Series by Kerri Ann

Series: Crashed
Author: Kerri Ann
Genre: Dark Gritty Romance

Release Date: Available Now

Crashed (Vol 1)

 


 

Wyatt
It was just another race.
Another hollow win.
Until her.
Sure, ten minutes ago two women graced my bed, but that doesn’t matter. I want her. I need to know her.
There’s something magnetic about Circe. Dragging me towards her like the goddess she’s named after…
I’d gladly drown.
I’ll have to prove to her that she’s more than a quick one night stand.
Circe
Wyatt ‘Casper’ Crown on a motorcycle is fearless.
He’s a champion.
No…He’s the champion.
Every man wants to be him.
Every woman wants to say they’ve had him. Most have.
I swore I wouldn’t let it happen. I wouldn’t fall prey to his dangerous charisma.
I know it’ll take everything in me to say no.
So what happens when the daredevil playboy doesn’t win?
What happened when the champion Crashed…
Crashed (Vol 2)
What happened when the champion Crashed…
Wyatt Crown was mine, and I was his.
Feeling his hands on my body, his breath on my skin, and the soft whisper when he said he loved me, he’d imprinted himself on my soul. I’d been cherished by a man that had once cherished nothing.
I didn’t feel alone anymore.
I’d found my home. My peace.
Calling out in the cold darkness, the lack of a reply crushes me. My world crumbles around me. My heart breaks, shredding into to a million pieces leaving me broken and scarred.
Why is this happening to me? Why again?
Once more I don’t know the outcome of those I love.
Once more…
I’m afraid.
Crashed Siren’s Call is the second book of the Crashed Series. It is best read after Casper’s Ghost. The Crown family continues within Careen and Whiskey’s Redemption. Both can be read as standalone stories, but suggested after Crashed, Casper’s Ghost and Siren’s Call.
Crashed (Vol 3)
Even the best racer can Careen off course…
Risen
Looking at the sleek motorcycle that pulled up beside my cruiser on the offramp, I expected a lifted ride and a punk. I never expected her.
Not the sensual princess of the Crown racing empire. The ever gorgeous China Doll Crown.
Arresting her was the last thing I’d hoped to do today. But it’s my job and duty to fulfill.
Fighting me every step of the way, Doll amps up my need to bend her over the hood of my car with cuffs…And not in a professional way.
Arresting her will be the biggest mistake of my career.
China
Stepping away from his car, the officer is every woman’s wet dream.
The mountainous thick chest that stretches for miles.
The colorful tattoos peeking out under the cuff of his shirt.
Then there’s those stark blue eyes framed by his sinful face…
Officer Risen Mason is heavenly.
Well, he was until he arrested me.
He’s the enemy as far as I’m concerned. I’m about to make his life a living hell.
Careen is the third installment in the Crashed Series. It can be read alone, but best read after Crashed, Casper’s Ghost and Siren’s Call.
Crashed (Vol 4)
One sip of Whiskey is never enough…
Jamieson Crown
I guarded my heart years ago.
I’m alone for a reason.
The rough facade is carefully in place to stop anyone from finding out that the arrogant, willful, crass, and dominant snowboard champion is a fake.
I don’t want them to see the truth. I’m broken.
Coming home to California to care for family, the last thing I expected was her. The dark haired, smart mouthed best friend of my brother’s girlfriend is a temptation I don’t need. With her fire, her sass, her sarcasm and wit, she’s perfection.
She keeps me guessing at every turn.
I no longer want to be alone. I won’t stop until I have her in my arms.
Carli Katana
I don’t do relationships. A quick one night stand here and there is just fine. Getting too close creates questions. Questions I don’t wish to answer. It’s safer that I’m alone.
No one wants in my family affairs. Even I don’t.
Then there he was.
Cocky.
Sinfully hot.
Dangerous to my libido…
Jamieson is everything I’d thought the perfect man should be. There’s no use in lying. Jamieson Crown is a delicacy.
I’m drawn to him when I should avoid him.
For his own good.
Will they be able to keep each other at an arms length, or fall into those arms they’re avoiding?

 

With an avaricious appetite for stories, Kerri Ann can be found quite often with her nose in a book or writing it. On many occasion it has been said that she’s in her own world, living in the stories of those she reads about, giving them a life they deserve.
She can easily be found under a tree in the shade, or reclining at Starbucks scribbling notes about new stories and new characters, all while keeping the coffee chain in business.
Whether late at night, at a music festival, or sitting on a ski lift, when the thoughts arise, Kerri Ann will add them to those in progress. So be wary, your antics could be in her next book.

NEW RELEASE ~ The Ghost in the Water by Faith Gibson (excerpt inside!)

Title: The Ghost in the Water
Series: Samuel Dexter Book 2
Author: Faith Gibson
Genre: M/M Paranormal Romance
Release Date: March 3, 2018 
There’s a serial killer in Robins, Alabama…

And he’s targeting women who look like the missing young woman Samuel Dexter and his PI mentor, Jillian, are searching for. As Sam trains to become a Private Investigator, he is also learning more about being a medium. During his missing persons case, two ghosts contact Sam, allowing him to put both new sets of skills to use. 

In Orlando Shaw’s years as a detective in small town Robins, he’s never come up against a serial killer. Until now. The killer is smart, leaving only the most elusive clues behind. Orlando has always relied on his team, but as the killer continues to evade capture, Orlando turns to the one person who has connections beyond his reach – his lover, Sam.

Navigating the rough waters of their reunion, Sam and Orlando learn there is give and take in a relationship. The love they felt as teens is gone, replaced with a more mature love, and it will take compromise by both men to make it work.

With the help of his little ghost, Cindy, Sam embraces his new gifts as together they help solve another crime.

The Ghost in the Water is book 2 in the Samuel Dexter Series. These books are written to be read in order.
“Do you really want to move in with me?” Orlando asked, barely loud enough for me to hear.
I could tell he was nervous. I’d been around him enough over the past few months to know his tells. His voice dipped low and soft when he wasn’t sure of himself, and he gripped my hips tighter than he probably realized, as if he were grounding us together. 

 

“I do. I can’t worry about the past; I can only look to the future. After I put in a day’s work with Jillian, I want to come home to you. To all this. You cooking and me cleaning up. Seeing our clothes mixed in the washing machine. Lounging around catching up on movies I don’t remember watching. Decorating the house for the holidays. Taking care of Zayden together. I want all the things other couples do when they’re building a home. I want to go to sleep every night with my head on your chest instead of on a cold pillow wondering if you’re asleep yet. I want to wake up with your arm around my waist because you don’t want me rolling away during the night. I want you. I want us.”

 

“I want that, too. More than anything. Come on. Let’s go to the bedroom. I need to hold you.” 

 

I allowed him to lead me down the hallway. I hadn’t planned on spending the night, but I had a feeling it was going to happen anyway. I should’ve texted Grams, but she knew where I was, and there had been plenty of nights I hadn’t made it home when I was supposed to. We both stripped down to our briefs and slid into our respective sides of the bed only to meet in the middle. Orlando cradled me the way he would if we were going to sleep, and I got comfortable against his strong body. We lay silently, letting our fingers do the talking. I skimmed my fingertips along his powerful thigh while his ghosted across my chest. When he grazed my nipple, I couldn’t help the moan that escaped my throat. 

 

That was all it took to break the spell. Orlando pulled me until I was lying on top of him. “I need you inside me,” he said, arching his back so his erection pressed into me. Resting on my forearms, I rocked back and forth until my dick was as hard as his. I didn’t hurry to give him what he wanted. Instead, I continued to torment us both with slow glides. Up and down. Back and forth. “Sam, please,” he begged. Dipping my head, my tongue teased along his full lips. Lips that were parted. Lips that were waiting for mine. 

 

I licked at the corner of his mouth, and he turned his head, searching. My teeth sank into his lower lip, biting just enough to make him gasp. Giving in to the need, I sealed our mouths. Keeping my eyes on his, I ground our dicks together while I sucked on his tongue, imagining it was his cock in my mouth. I had no idea how much experience I had giving head, but I enjoyed it. I loved the way his erection filled my mouth. The slide of warm skin over my tongue until it hit the back of my throat, making me gag. Why imagine it? Just do it.

 

I slid down Orlando’s body, licking both nipples and pressing wet, open-mouthed kisses to his stomach and hip bones. I scraped my teeth along his erection through his cotton briefs before nuzzling my nose against his balls and inhaling. His scent filled my nostrils, but it wasn’t enough. There was something about the way Orlando’s body wash mingled with his natural odor that drove me wild.

 

“Sam, please. I need you filling me up.” 

 

“I’m getting there,” I assured him. I had every intention of making love to him, but not before I got a taste. Orlando pushed his underwear off his hips, and I slid them the rest of the way down his legs, licking his tip before sucking him inside. Orlando grabbed my hair and held my head still so he could grind against my face. I opened my throat as much as possible to accommodate his length. He always knew when I needed him to back off, and this time was no exception. His breathing grew jagged the longer I sucked him, and the few words he muttered sounded a lot like he was fucking god in one breath and damning him in the next.

HAPPY RELEASE DAY ~ The Praetorian by Dawn L. Chiletz (EXCERPT inside!)

Title: The Praetorian: a Reality TV Novel
Author: Dawn L. Chiletz
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date: February 23, 2018 
Prae·to·ri·an /prēˈtôrēən/- a skilled warrior serving as the personal guard of a Roman Emperor. 

Bad-boy rock star Roman Creed keeps his secret locked behind a door. 

When Seamore Productions offers to find him a new bodyguard through a reality TV show, Roman reluctantly agrees. He needs some good press and better security. The last thing he expects is a beautiful, curious cop to get under his skin and into his past. Why can’t he stop thinking about her? 

Tough-as-nails detective Reed Manning keeps her secret locked away in her mind. 

After being suspended from the police force, she considers trying out for the show. She’s supposed to keep her eye on the cash prize, but her potential boss captures her attention. What is he so desperately trying to hide? 

When a single decision can change a life-

Never let your guard down.

I glance up at the woman in the reflection behind the bar. She looks tired and broken. 

I could get fired over this. I should be. I was wrong. I’ve had perps push my buttons before, but not like him. For the first time in my life, I consider the fact that I don’t deserve to wear a badge. Maybe I’m not cut out for this job after all. 

The TV in the corner goes dark. I’d think they lost signal if not for the dramatic music that begins. The TV flips to what looks to be men dressed in full armor going into battle. The clips are brief, interspersed with darkness, but I recognize the music. It’s “Returns the King” from the movie 300. My asshole boyfriend, two asshole boyfriends ago, loved the gladiator type movies. I remember 300 because I drooled over Gerard Butler through the entire thing. He’s hot as fuck.

Something’s different with the music, though. There’s electric guitar dispersed throughout. When the drums finally kick in, you see a line of Roman warriors marching toward a throne made out of silver guitars with a black leather seat. Someone is standing in front of it wearing a black cape, his back turned to them. The cape is being blown around by what seems to be the wind and under it you see tight leather pants and black combat boots. He raises one tattooed, muscular arm and they all stop. He turns and all you see are his crystal blue eyes surrounded by smudged dark eyeshadow and a pierced nose. The camera pans out farther and you see his face. He smirks and the words The Praetorian appear, followed by Coming Soon.

Goosebumps shoot up my arms. I can’t stop staring at the screen even after the baseball game continues.

Movement in the corner of my eye pulls me out of my trance.

“You okay?” the bartender asks. He’s drying a glass with a towel and is trying to hide a smile. I must have looked ridiculous.

“Fine.”

“Don’t tell me that’s the first time you’ve seen those ads. I swear I’ve seen them all like fifty times,” he says with a twinkle in his eyes. He seems excited by them.

“I don’t watch much TV. What’s it for?”

“Seamore Productions is doing a new reality show, and this time they’re looking for a bodyguard for Roman Creed.”

“Roman Creed?” I feel like I should know the name, but I don’t.

His mouth drops open as if I shocked the breath out of him. “You don’t know Roman Creed?”

I lift my eyebrows, purse my lips, and shake my head. “No clue.”

“The lead singer of Core Damage? They won a Grammy for their album Annihilation a few years ago?”

“Oh, yeah. Sure.” I pretend I know it because I want him to drop it. Core Damage sounds vaguely familiar, but I’m more into country music.

“It looks like it’s going to be kickass. It’s by the same company that did The Fabulist. Remember that show?”

“I do.” That’s not a lie. I watched it. I found the lying challenges fascinating.

“Same thing. They’re holding tryouts next week, here in LA. Pete, my bouncer, is going to audition.”

“Sounds cool,” I say and toss thirty bucks on the counter. “That enough?” 

“Too much.”

I briefly consider taking some cash back but leave it. It’ll be my last careless purchase until I get my life back in order.

“The winner gets a job and $100,000,” he adds as I make my way to the door.

I stop in my tracks, turning my head back to him. One hundred thousand just made this a little more interesting. Maybe even life-changing. Gazing up at the TV and then back to the bartender, I lean on the bar. “What do I have to do?”

COVER REVEAL ~ Book of Watchers by Mary Ting

Title: Book of Watchers 
Series: Watchers #1
Author: Mary Ting
Genre: NA Fantasy

Release Date: March 26, 2018 

 

Before the Bible, there was Book of Watchers

 


Enoch wants to live an ordinary life. He’s content to lie low, skip his college classes, and avoid committing to any one girl. But ordinary isn’t on the syllabus for Enoch because at night, he dreams of demons. Vivid dreams that leave him wanting escape more than ever. When they escape his dreams and attack him during daylight, his reality becomes a nightmare. 

As he pieces together the meaning behind the encounters, supernatural creatures emerge. Demons. Vampires. Witches. Angels. And they all want something from him. In a supernatural world he never thought possible, Enoch uncovers a secret that either will destroy him or force him to become much more than he ever wanted. 
The scent of my own flesh and blood seeped through the walls. I didn’t bother to knock on the door, but instead flicked my wrist to the side. My power tore the slab of wood off the hinges, and I walked in. The family of four became immobile, their eyes wide with terror as they watch me saunter into their lives.

 


Fools. 

They should be on their knees, bowing, worshiping me, but instead they stared like I was a ghost. Luckily for them, I felt tolerant. After all, I had come to claim my own. A happy occasion indeed.

I didn’t hide my true form, and I supposed I would be horrified if I were human and saw the likes of me. A demon. Over seven feet tall with ripped muscles, I towered over the entire family. But my face, reptilian with hardly any nose and rows of teeth like shark’s—I was a thing of nightmares.

 

International Bestselling/Award Winning Author Mary Ting/M. Clarke resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. She also toured with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.
