Despite a near catastrophe, there’s time for a fateful encounter.
 
Maureen Reaper, eldest daughter of the revered Grim Reaper, avoided an apocalyptic vortex which threatened humanity, but she still has time for bets. She can’t help it thanks to her curse—the sin of pride. Her latest one brings her face-to-face with an entity no one has seen or heard from for thousands of years.
 
Jackal, an entity created by the Devil himself, has never known the comprehension of emotions until the day a witch cursed him to feel for everything he has killed. Unable to bear the new burden of a heavy heart, he sleeps with no intention of ever waking until someone finds him.
 
There’s nothing beautiful in their meeting. Enemies by birth, only more so when Maureen straps a collar around his neck all for a bet. She awakens a beast whose every first—every new glare, new craving, and touch has landed upon her.
 
Then she learns that the one she sought out in a game controlled by pride could be the very one that helps turn the tide back in the Reapers’ favor.

Pride is a bitch, and Maureen is her.

Blurb:
What’s a superheroine to do when her super soldier ex turns up alive after more than fifteen years?

Lyndsey doesn’t have much time to walk down memory lane before she and Ian find themselves thrown together to investigate the mysterious deaths of ten young men in the Canadian wilderness. How do such seemingly normal, healthy men’s hearts just…stop?

With the hint of an evil spirit in the wind–and a whole lot of butterflies–there’s no telling what Lyndsey and Ian are dealing with, including their own extensive baggage. Though seventeen years is a lot of life to live, there’s one thing they can’t deny: their attraction is as intense as ever. But is it just a spark that will burn itself out, or is it true love bringing them back together? When the force they’re hunting turns its sights on them, the leap of faith required far exceeds either of their powers. But worrying about their future might be premature because one wrong move and they might not make it out alive.

In Book One of the Butterfly Ops trilogy, Lyndsey and Ian reconnect fifteen years after seeing each other for what each thought was the last time. That the spark is still there is undeniable—but is it enough to get past the secrets and lies that tore them apart the first time around? With old tensions rearing their heads as new challenges arise, what at first seems to be a sure path back to trust and happiness is rockier than it seems.

Note: this is Book One in a serial trilogy. Book Two will be released in Spring 2019; Book Three will be released in early Summer 2019. Books should be read in order.

NEW RELEASE Alert ~ Wicked Games by Kel Carpenter

Title: Wicked Games
Series: Queen of the Damned #2
Author: Kel Carpenter
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: April 20, 2018

 

So…as it turns out, I really am Lucifer’s Daughter. Hell’s Heir. And—you guessed it—the next Queen of the Damned.

 


But what if I don’t want to rule?

With the imp in hiding, and Josh gone from this world, I still wasn’t safe. Not by a long shot. Dear ol’ Dad didn’t just pass on his legacy and mark. He also passed on all of Hell’s problems, and that means his enemies, are now mine.

Fortunately for me, I have the Four Horsemen, my banshee best friend, and a pissed off raccoon on my side.

But now I have the beast to contend with. My psychotic, possessive, and downright scary alter-ego was dead set on having the Horsemen, not only at my back, but in my bed. As if learning to control the flames of Hell wasn’t a hard enough job by itself.

Would it have been too hard for Lucifer to write a handbook before he died?

NEW RELEASE!!! ~ Never After by Billie Dale

Title: Never After: A Fairytale Inspired Romantic Comedy
Author: Billie Dale
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Fantasy Fairytale Novella
Release Date: April 6, 2018
ONLY $0.99 & AVAILABLE ON ALL PLATFORMS FOR 3 DAYS ONLY
When I walked down the aisle all those years ago, I thought I was about to begin a fairytale romance…
Boy, was I ever wrong.

Now my would-be Prince Charming is doing a stint behind bars, and my two kids and I are back in the one place I never wanted to see again – the home of my witchy, poisoned-apple-giving Wicked Stepmother.

A loveless home is no place to raise your kids and playing cleaning lady to the seven messiest brothers in history isn’t going to cut it.
Elsabeth Delle bursts into my life like a winter storm – with an idea that might get both of us damsels out of our distress.
It starts with a bed, a webcam, and whichever Internet strangers are willing to offer up their golden coins.
What could go wrong?
As it turns out, it’s not a what. It’s a who.

Royal Princeps.
He seems almost too good to be true – all radiant green eyes, perfect scruff and a body that’s just made for sin. He’s definitely the fairest of them all…. But I’ve got to figure out if this handsome hunk is my Knight in Shining Armor, or the Big Bad Wolf in sheep’s clothing; ready to eat me all up (and not in the good way.)
Or, as I’m starting to suspect, maybe he’s a bit of both…

Never After is a Snow White-inspired, curse-word infused bedtime story for adults only – exploring what happens when your fairytale “happy ending” is actually just the beginning…

Billie Dale lives in no-where middle earth. Lost in a small village in the Midwest with four kids, three animals and an amazing, word inspiring book boyfriend worthy husband.

A blogger by nature and a writer because she got tired of arguing with the voices in her head. She loves and lives the words on the page, whether writing them or reading them her life is consumed by the worlds her head creates.

Her greatest wish is that readers will fall in love with her words as much as she loves writing them and as much as she loves reading others. She loves to create new worlds to explore and loves to write words that will take root in you soul.

Paranormal, New Adult, Romantic Comedy, Contemporary — there is not one box she fits in. She’s a rebel in the author world who writes what her head tells her even it jumps from genre to genre.

Enter the world of Arcadia Global and learn about those that wield, control, and manipulate the elemental magics of the world.

Shelly was raised by her paternal Grandma, Georgette. Her life was filled with good food, stories, and lots of lessons about antiques, old plantations, and what proper etiquette was for young ladies.

When she was thirteen years old Georgette handed her a paperback book and told her to dream. From that moment on she has not stopped reading or dreaming of becoming a writer. 
After a long career in technology, real estate, and raising three children she decided it was time to pursue a dream. While Shelly had written technical documents during her career in technology she had no idea what it meant to be a fiction writer. With determination and the guiding hand of a veteran writer as her mentor, she slowly learned to craft a story. Finally, she realized her dream with her first publication of Magic’s Lovers in August 2016.
She saw the reviews for Magic’s Lovers, the emails, and private messages requesting that Shay & Pierce’s book become a series. She jumped into book two and wrote the second most requested story. Magic Denied was published in September 2017. Petra’s book is planned!
Living in Seattle, Washington area with her geeky husband of over twenty years and three teenagers, Shelly squeezes in writing when she can.

NEW RELEASE ~ Southern Shade by Tich Brewster & Shalisha Cooper

Title: Southern Shade
Author: Tich Brewster & Shalisha Cooper
Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance
Publisher: World Castle Publishing
Release Date: March 27, 2018
Desiree is a nurse at the children’s hospital. Being a work-a-holic, Desiree has no desire to hit the clubs after a grueling twelve-hour shift but after being persuaded by her best friend, she caves. 

Dressed in cowboy boots, tight wranglers, and a cowboy hat, Caleb is the man of Desiree’s dreams. He’s handsome, gentlemanly, and sexy as hell. And has a killer secret. He’s a vampire. 

Bodies turn up in the streets, drained of blood and missing hearts. The most intriguing part, carved on their foreheads is the Xavier symbol. A symbol Caleb has not seen in five hundred years. 

When he learns that Drake Xavier has escaped purgatory, he fears for Desiree’s safety. In his six hundred years on this earth he’s never feared death. Now the fear of death grips his heart like a vise. Desiree is the only woman he has ever loved. The only woman he wants to spend an eternity with.

Life and death. Those two words mean very little to an immortal. With the gift of eternal life, we don’t dwell on such things. Death passes us by every minute of the day, taking mortals to their eternal resting place while it is nothing more than an afterthought for those of us gifted with immortality.

 

I’d never given it much thought until now. Death never had a reason to be on my radar but as I stare into her eyes, those honey-brown eyes of a killer, I now know the fear that death brings. The universe has finally decided to show up and flip my world upside down. Now my heart is pounding, threatening to burst forth out of my chest. I beg death to leave, to run for the hills and let us be.

 

Will she?

 

Recognition shines in her eyes and for an instant I think she might. I believe she will have mercy on me and flee without claiming the life of the innocent…of the one I love. Then the storm rages overhead and I know that she won’t. She’s come to collect regardless of whether it’s right or wrong.

 

Suddenly, the very thing that I cared nothing for becomes the very thing that terrifies me.

RELEASE DAY! ~ Taming the Alien Prince by Rie Warren

Title: Taming the Alien Prince
Series: Intergalactic Lurve Book 2
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: Sci-Fi Alien Royalty Romance
Release Date: March 26, 2018 

 

Area 51 . . . the new hook-up spot for aliens and humans. Who knew?

One might describe Zaneeviex as cocky, with good reason. He’s been doubly blessed, and his extra endowments haven’t gone to waste on his own planet. But the Zenithian Prince is ready to mate for life. Where does he locate his perfect breeder? Area 51, natch. 

Astrid’s no stranger to Believers—crazy folk who dedicate their lives to making contact. As a NASA astrobiologist, she’s studied the possibility of extraterrestrial life forms, though really, she just wants to make contact with a man who melts her panties right off. 

Imagine her surprise when she discovers A. Aliens are real, and B. Zane, a Zenithian Prince, doesn’t just melt her panties, he absolutely incinerates her body into a pile of do-me-goo. 

Two dicks—and two hearts—really are better than one. Until the ongoing peril facing humans on Zenithia threatens to tear Zane and Astrid apart.
“You were jealous, Prairie.” X’s voice rumbled deliciously from the widest chest I’d ever seen. 

“What?” I huffed. “Not.”

Smug sexy alien stud. 

A grin tipped up one corner of his mouth. 

Without another word, he began to undress, and I was once again treated to the insane sight of his incredibly muscled body. He stopped with the lacings of his pants coming undone, revealing the root of his impressively thick cock. 

He ducked his head, licking across my lips before delving inside. I trembled with awareness of him, my hands roaming to the ropey sinews of his shoulders. Before I even knew it, he’d completely disrobed me, leaving me in only the humungo necklace and nipples so tight I thought I’d come if he so much as touched them. 

He set my hands on the lacings of his leathers, watching with a hungry smile as my fingers pulled them open one by one. 

My heart pounded harder. My pussy got wetter and wetter. The peaks of my breasts rubbed against the heated glossy skin of his chest. 

Tugging the pants down, down, down, my breath caught in my throat at the feast of flesh presented in front of me. 

Our skin still gleamed from the earlier oil treatment, and I stood quivering in front of him. 

“Now we fuck.” His voice came out like sexual thunder, sending a bolt of dirty desire zinging desperately through me. 

My belly clenched, but when he picked me up and tossed me onto the bed, I held up my hands. 

“Holy horse cock, alien boy!” I stared at the lewd length kicking up from his groin, veins pulsing all over, the big domed head pushing out one drop of liquid after another. “Seriously though, is that thing really for real? Or is it just another hologram?”

“You touched my cock earlier. Did it feel real?” He wrapped a massive fist around the base jutting from his body and stroked all the long way up to the tip. 

Involuntarily, my thighs spread, and I felt myself dripping all over the bedding. 

His eyes—gleaming nearly fluorescent green—latched onto the sight of my pussy, and his lips curled off his teeth, nostrils flaring. 

I writhed at the primal sight of him as he crawled up between my legs, pushing them wider and wider apart with his sheer size. 

As soon as his cockhead touched my labia, sizzling heat rippled through my body, but my hands rose again to push at his chest. 

“Uh unh. On second thought you can’t fuck me with that thing. No way will it fit.”

“Then tonight I will stretch you.”
