NEW RELEASE!!! ~ Twisted Secrets by Ace Gray

Title: Twisted Secrets
Author: Ace Gray
Genre: Dark Romance/Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 26, 2018
Cover Designer: Bex Harper Designs
My whole life, there had only been one rule. Don’t go to Chicago. It always made me feel like a damsel in distress, trapped in a tower. But my life was filled with kings and queens and the most noble knights and I didn’t need another fairytale. 
I needed a bad boy. 
Brye McCowan was just that. He was smooth, and seductive. Dark, dangerous and downright drool worthy too. I saw trouble swirling around him in place of a shadow. He was my one rule personified.
And I couldn’t stop myself from kissing him. 
 
Which was right about the time that whole fairytale thing kicked back in. Only this time I wasn’t surrounded by heroes. These were the villains, wicked and vengeful. And Brye was one of them. When all was said and done, when all the blood was spilled, the only thing more tormenting than the dungeon he threw me in was knowing it was my family’s twisted secrets that put me there.

Mila

Pregnant and married at the young age of eighteen, I settled into my life not knowing there could ever be more.
 
Until Mason, with his cocky smirk and magnetic baby blue eyes. With a single look and a few words, he made me feel sexy and alive. But as quickly as he came into my life, he was gone, leaving me wanting more.
 
A few days later my mom died, and her final words of advice—life’s too short to settle—are what I vowed to live my life by. Not even a year after her death, I was divorced and ready to find the one.
 
Only I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to find someone who could make me feel the way Mason did. Five years later, and I’m still single, looking for my forever.
 
Mason

I’m the guy who fights and f*cks. The guy who goes fishing but never keeps what he catches. The responsibility that comes with commitment isn’t for me.
 
Until Mila comes back into my life making me want things I’ve never imagined wanting. Now, the man I’ve always been is quickly losing the fight against the man I want to be.
 
I’m supposed to want the woman who wants the right now. Yet, I’m falling for the woman who wants the forever.

Danger! Men with big umm … egos can be hazardous to your health.
 
Have you ever had a moment of pure insanity, landing you up against an elevator wall with a total stranger?
Just me then, huh?
Well, he wasn’t exactly unknown, but that’s besides the point.
The second I met Jared Carrington, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to throat punch him or kiss him. Choosing the latter was a mistake of epic proportions, and after two of the best months of my life he broke my heart.
Big surprise.
If you’re on the fence about hooking up with a guy like him, use my story as a cautionary tale. Stay away from arrogant jerks with skillful hands and a tongue that … 
You get the point.

Rhys Rivera is the star short-stop for the Longview Lumberjacks. Many know him, even more love him. He has a pretty face, a quick smile, and an air of danger about him that everyone seems to adore.
 
He’s not known as the bad boy of baseball for nothing.
 
It all started with his father, who decided to be a criminal mob boss, then die.
 
Fortunately for his uncle, Rhys wants absolutely nothing to do with the family business and runs before anyone can figure out which way is up.
 
By the time his uncle, the successor to his father’s criminal empire, thinks to look for him, Rhys has made too big of a name for himself to be taken out quietly, and he wants to keep it that way.
 
Fast forward eight years, and Rhys is living life one breath at a time, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. That shoe coming in the form of a nosy neighbor who has no idea just how hot she is in her mail carrier uniform.
 
Her sweet little body and positive outlook on life make him want to laugh at how naïve she is when it comes to the way of the world.
 
The harder he tries to stay away, the weaker he seems to get, until one day he decides to put his morals on hold long enough to satisfy his cravings.
 
One time is all he needs—or so he tells himself.
But then two pink lines change everything, and all of a sudden, he doesn’t have just himself to worry about anymore.

Series: Seven Vices Series
Author: Emily Blythe
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Release Date: July 12, 2018
Cover Designer: Mayhem Cover Creations
From author Emily Blythe, comes a new, standalone, contemporary romance.
 
Chloe Walker
Back then the boy next door was a beautiful contradiction. An avid reader, the town brawler—my dangerous crush. Until one day he up and left town like a thief in the night, leaving me devastated.
 
A decade later, my nightmare returned. But Will Lewin was no longer the wild, charismatic boy of my past. He was a successful restaurateur, a stranger. He was something bitter and resentful. A fully grown man…who still left me reeling.
 
I didn’t want his help. But I had nowhere else to turn. I had to let him back in. Even if I still hated him. Even if he could never forgive me for what I’d done. 
 
Will Lewin
Get the job done and get the hell out of there…nothing could be simpler. Right?
 
But it wasn’t. I felt it in every fiber of my being—coming back was a mistake. Nothing had changed in the years since they’d driven me from my hometown. They hadn’t forgotten, and neither had I. 
 
Ten years on, that same wrath still blistered inside me. Except now it was squarely directed at the people who had tried to destroy my life: the residents of Falcon, my high school nemesis, and most of all, Chloe…the girl who broke my heart.
 
 
Wrath is a Seven Vices novel (a series of standalones that can be read in any order). This is a steamy, full-length romance with a HEA. No cheating.

Mason Kincaid is a player.
 
He learned from the best—his brothers. He knows he’s a good-looking bastard and isn’t afraid to use his baby face on the ladies. 
 
Life is sweet until he receives a call from his best friend begging Mason to look out for his baby sister, Josephine. A babysitting job is not on his list of things to do, but Keith is like a brother to him, and he can’t say no.
 
Then he meets Josephine and feels like a fifteen-year-old fanboy. Josephine isn’t just Keith’s little sister—she’s Mason’s favorite YouTuber, and Keith damn well knew it. The bastard probably laughed his ass off.
 
Celebrity crush or not, he takes his role as her fill-in big brother seriously, and he immediately understands Keith’s dislike of Jo’s self-centered boyfriend. The more time Mason spends with her, the harder it is not to beat the asshole black and blue. 
 
And the harder it is to guard his heart. 
 
Before long, the player is played. He falls in love with a woman who is not only taken, but seems to truly love her boyfriend.
 
But Mason is a Kincaid, and Kincaids don’t back down. He’s determined to change his manwhore ways and show Jo what it means to be treated right, cared for, and loved, even though she fights him with every breath. 
 
Can he convince her to listen to her heart before it’s too late—and they lose the one thing they’ll never find again?

NEW RELEASE!!! ~ His Sweetest Sin by Fiona Murphy

Title: His Sweetest Sin
Author: Fiona Murphy
Genre: BBW Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 29, 2018

 

I can’t believe it. Christopher Baldwin, the baddest boy in baseball wants me. Amelia Bishop, I was maybe a solid seven before an accident changed my life, leaving me fat, broken, and avoiding mirrors around me. If he hadn’t said it with a stare hot enough to melt brain cells, I would never have believed him when he said my curves are what he wants.
 
Cocky, arrogant, tattooed, with a diamond glinting in his ear, he is no boy. He is all man and a lethally gorgeous one at that. With dimples flashing as he invites me to sin in a slow Southern drawl I’m trying to remember I don’t swoon, sin, or—wait, what? I forgot not to stare directly at his dimples, those bright blue eyes aren’t safe either. Sorry, as I was saying.
 
As appealing as the idea of being bad with Chris is, there is no doubt in my mind I would fail miserably at it, even under his expert tutelage. Chris is used to strippers, women who have all the right moves. Me, I have no moves, at all. Chris is major league, I would get laughed out of little league.
 
I’m also his lawyer, at least until my brother, Ethan, comes back from vacation. Getting involved with clients is a huge no-no, no matter what primetime television might show. As gorgeous as he is he isn’t worth the possibility of hurting my career or losing the hard-earned respect of my boss and brother.
 
Only I can’t deny he makes being bad sound so good. Once Ethan is back I’m no longer Chris’s lawyer and it’s open season on all my good intentions. Being with him is still dangerous, his fame attracts all sorts of trouble. Who knows what complications could tear us apart?
 
***While a standalone, Holly and Ethan from His Under Contract make an appearance. You need not have read His Under Contract to enjoy His Sweetest Sin. ***
 
***Warning***
I don’t like to watch sports, although I do enjoy watching beautiful men sweat. I’ve never read a sports romance before. Chris Baldwin is a man falling in love with a sassy, damaged, curvy woman and he also happens to play baseball. When I started writing, I did do my research. I watched the winning series that inspired the story. I watched a bunch of movies and spent hours on Wikipedia. Then I scrapped the paragraphs waxing lyrical about the love the game and stuck with what I know. My billionaires don’t lay out the inner workings of their deals. I figured less is more. So, please be aware the focus is not the love of the game, it’s on the love story.
