#NewRelease ~ “Wild Child” Series: CroXroads Book One, by Author LaVerne Thompson, Genre: Urban Fantasy is Available Now! ~ @lavernethompson @EJBookPromos

Title: Wild Child
Series: CroXroads Book One
Author: LaVerne Thompson
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Release Date: June 2, 2020

The road you take cannot be undone.

Kasha never quite fit in. So she left home long ago to pursue her career in art. Hell, she ran as fast as she could away from her minister father and his judgmental ways. Yet, she loved her parents, so when the dreams surrounding a church filled with fire and blood kept repeating themselves, it was all she could paint. She had to warn them. Only to arrive too late to save them. Now she found herself running once again, only this time away from a nightmare. 

In her mad flight, she took a turn off the highway. Soon realizing she might have run toward something even worse. This time she couldn’t run couldn’t lie to herself anymore. She was more than an artist. She had to learn to fully embrace and unleash her powers within. In order to know who and what she truly was she had to learn to stand her ground and travel to another place to find her truth.

The long fingers of the flames quickly covered the frames of the houses clustered so closely together. Fissures opened in the ground, spitting fire from the bowels of the earth and setting everything ablaze. What the fire didn’t destroy, the earthquakes rocking the area finished the rest.
Kasha turned away from the television set as she continued to pack. The news flashed footage like that over and over again, but Kasha had seen those same images long before the live broadcast. She hated herself for not listening to the dreams for the last few days before it happened. She’d fucking known.

#NewRelease ~ “Into Their Woods” A Shifter Romance by Author Beckett Riley, Genre: Erotic Romance (Paranormal/Shifter Short Story) is Available Now! ~ #AuthorBeckettRiley @EJBookPromos

Title: Into Their Woods: A Shifter Romance
Author: Beckett Riley
Genre: Erotic Romance (Paranormal/Shifter Short Story)
Release Date: June 1, 2020
Living in a rickety old cabin in the woods she bought to renovate, beautiful ex-ballerina Kat knew this was the life she was meant for. If only she had a map when she got lost during a leisurely walk. The wolf stalking her isn’t helping matters either.
 
Brothers Brodie, Lucas, and Finn are scorching hot, territorial bear shifters living in seclusion with one thing on their minds; finding a mate.
 
When Kat lands on their doorstep after narrowly becoming wolf dinner, the term “being eaten alive” takes on a whole new meaning as she’s been mated to all three gorgeous men who want nothing but to fulfill her every need. Can these shifters contain the raging beasts within? More importantly, does Kat want them to?

I stared at the pointe shoes on my feet. Incredible how one tangible item can contribute to some of the best memories in your life and also be the root of your greatest failure. I wrapped the delicate ribbons around my ankles and felt some familiar cramps. Ugh, I was getting my period. Great timing. I looked up and saw my reflection in the cracked mirror. Fucking morons. The delivery guys manhandled the mirror when they mounted it to the wooden wall inside the cabin. It had taken forever to have it delivered here. I was so far up the mountain a return or exchange wasn’t really an option. I ended up gluing some pieces directly onto the wall. How sad. It was—is—a shit hole, but now it’s my shit hole. A work in progress as many new homeowners in over their heads would say. No matter, I was doing my very best to make it mine, but this turned out to be harder than I ever imagined. Fuck those home renovating whores on HGTV. But I didn’t have much of a choice. I sold everything and came here to live permanently, maybe teach dance at the nearest school. I don’t know; I haven’t thought that far ahead. I just want a fresh start. Look, I always knew I would never make principal dancer. I was never the right body type. By right body type I mean waif-thin and flat-chested. I have big tits, and I like food. That didn’t stop me from strapping down the girls and skipping a meal or two. I loved to dance until I didn’t. That time didn’t come until grandma died. She raised me and spent her life sacrificing everything for me, always reminding me to love life. It dawned on me after her passing that I wasn’t. I stood in front of the barre and started my carefree warm-up. I was in plié when I noticed my cold breath was visible; I knew I needed to stop and get wood from outside for the fireplace before the sun set. As I stepped onto the porch, I had an urge to explore. Why not? I put on my hiking boots and went off. About thirty minutes into my adventure, I came across a beautiful stream. The water flowing over the stones was a heavenly sound. I kept walking along the edge, mesmerized. It wasn’t until I heard a growl in the distance that I realized how far from my cabin I was. The sun was setting too. Shit. The growling got closer, and I frantically looked around for a branch or something I could use as a weapon when I noticed smoke rising not that far away. A chimney. Not wanting to run, I hustled toward the cabin.
Beckett loves writing short, erotic stories as much as she loves reading them. Happily ever afters and hot, possessive guys bring tears of joy to her eyes so expect to see alpha males roaming the pages of her raunchy page. Born somewhere in the United States, Beckett now resides somewhere in the United States where she writes erotic stories. Hey, a girl’s gotta have some secrets.

#NewRelease ~ “The D- in 403B” by Author: Jess Bryant, Genre: M/M Romance, is Available Now! ~ @jess_bry @EJBookPromos

Title: The D- in 403B
Author: Jess Bryant
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: June 4, 2020
Full Jacket Designed by Melissa Gill Designs
Sometimes a change of address can change your life.

 

Declan Ward has been called a lot of things in his life. Drug baby, delinquent and dirty little gay boy just to name a few. As a child in foster care, he heard it all and as an adult he knows better than to worry about what other people think of him. But when he gets into a war of words with his neighbor, he earns a new nickname and this time, it’s one he likes, one he decides he should definitely live up to.
 
After all, the new guy never actually said what it was the D stands for in his letters, but Declan has a few ideas and would be more than happy to show him.
 
Brett Coburn is a mature, respectable adult. He doesn’t get into arguments and he doesn’t name call like a kid on the playground. It doesn’t matter that the guy in 403B is the best-looking man Brett has ever laid eyes on. He’s a dickhead and Brett has the letters to prove it. That’s why nobody is more surprised than Brett when their thinly veiled threatening letters take a turn for the fun and flirtatious.
 
Is it possible they have more in common than they realized? Can they overcome the rough start to their friendship and turn it into something more? Or if they let their relationship become about more than just the “D” are they both bound to end up broken hearted?

Logan Fox writes deliciously dark and twisted books.
 
INGREDIENTS:
Possessive, growly alphas.
Feisty heroines.
Kindle-melting steam.
 
CAUTION:
Created in a twisted mind; may contain triggers.


My name is Esme Devlin and I’m a Scottish author who writes books about filthy, complicated, alpha-arsehole men, and the women who fall in love with them.

I grew up on a rough estate on the outskirts of Glasgow, where the weekends were spent in a park drinking tonic with boys who I should have known better than to trust. Now I spend my mornings raising my own little ‘toe-rag’ girls, and my days on a building site; knee-deep in mud and sometimes waist-high in Scottish wet weather. We can pretend that the tradesmen on my site wear kilts and the weather is frequently warm enough for naked chests if helps you build a better picture in your mind. I’m easy.

My nights are my passion though. I spend those with my face in a laptop, frantically bringing to life the men who play games in my head. I have ALWAYS fallen in love with the villain of the story, even before I was old enough to realise that made me slightly less than normal. I’ve always been drawn to the dark. Things are more interesting there, where you can’t always see what’s hiding in the shadows.

With that said, welcome to my world! I hope you stick around for the ride. I can’t promise there will always be kilts, but there will be sexy villains.

#NewRelease ~ “Treachery” Series: Antihero Inferno #1, by Author Lily White, Genre: Romantic Suspense is Available NOW!! #AuthorLilyWhite @lilywhitebooks @GiveMeBooksPR

Title: Treachery
Series: Antihero Inferno #1
Author: Lily White
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 27, 2020
Photographer: Michelle Lancaster
Cover Design: Lori Jackson Designs

Ninth Circle.
Treachery.
Also known as Tanner Caine.
 
He is a temptation with cold, dark eyes. 
A man with a seductive smirk and a body built for pure sin. 
The linchpin of a group of wealthy bad boys known as the Inferno.
 
A dark presence that repels as much as he attracts, Tanner is the poisoned apple I want to bite even when I know it will destroy me.
 
Our story started in college, but I ran from him so far I believed I was safe.
I should have known he’d find me eventually.
I should have known that nobody escapes.
 
He has me in his sights again with an offer I can’t pass up.
I know better than to make a deal with the Devil. 
Not unless I’m willing to pay his sensual price…
 
(Treachery is Book One of the Antihero Inferno Series. Nine Standalone novels. Nine dangerous men. Nine unrepentant sinners you’ll hate to love.)
Some monsters are frightening because they kill and maim without remorse. Some are scary because they get in your head and make you doubt everything you believe you know about the world around you. 

Tanner is terrifying because it takes nothing at all for him to set his sights on you, to ignite his anger and draw his attention. And instead of simply destroying you physically or mentally, he is the type of monster who will alter your entire world and leave you struggling to breathe while watching it all come tumbling down. 

He leaves you alive to witness the chaos. He leaves you drowning while he storms off, satisfied that there isn’t so much as a shred of what you once had left for you to cling onto.

Maybe monster is the wrong word. 

It’s too simple. 

Too ordinary. 

Other men are monsters. 

Lesser men are monsters. 

Not Tanner.

Tanner is a maelstrom. 

He frightens me now even more than he had at Yale. I try to lie to myself and swear the fear has everything to do with the money I will lose. 

But there’s something else, something deeper, something shadowed and burning with fierce carnal desire that lingers like a fog within my core. 

Memories collide with the present, the aching I feel every time Tanner is nearby. 

Because it hadn’t been easy to avoid him so many years ago. 

It had been a fight, a war, a bloody battle occurring inside me.
Lily White is a romance writer who likes to dabble on the taboo side of eroticism. She is most known for her Masters Series, Target This, Wishing Well, and Asylum.
