Title: Blood Ties
Series: The Abiding Series Book 2
Author: B.C. Morin
Genre: Paranormal Romance Suspense
Release Date: August 21, 2020
Can you ever truly escape your past?
 
B.C. Morin returns to her world of vampires, werewolves, nephilim, and the carefully created hybrids who are now fighting to keep the crumbling peace between the species.
 
“The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited, or erased. It can only be accepted.” ~Unknown
 
Especially if the past made you the rare immortal hybrid you are today.
Emeline Huntley is a survivor. A reluctant immortal who has lived through losing her family, being experimented on, wearing a clockwork collar that could behead her at any moment, and being under the control of one of the most ruthless men she has ever had the displeasure to know. Now, she and her lethal and intoxicating husband Alexander, also a hybrid have become peace-keepers. If you consider vigilante mercenaries for hire, peace-keepers, that is.
Emeline and Alexander have been thrust into the center of a surge of murders that threatens the already fragile state of affairs between vampires and werewolves. When a hooded figure targets them at home in the States and they run out of answers here, Emeline and Alexander have to go home to England. Fighting ghosts of the past as much as the enemies of the present, they find that this is far more than a species war. Someone is playing a deadly game and Emeline and Alexander are in their way.
Enemies are gaining ground as danger closes in on the couple and the past they have tried so hard to avoid rushes back. Calling on the very vampire and werewolf they were created from, Alexander and Emeline try to get to the bottom of it all and stop the mysterious figure before more lives are taken. But as the dead ends keep piling up, time is running out…


Originally from Miami, Florida, award winning author B.C. Morin now lives in Jacksonville, Florida with her husband, two children, and American Bullhuahua, Max.

#NewRelease ~ “Unexpected Expectations” (425 Madison Series) Genre: Contemporary Romance, Rags To RIches Romance, by Author Lauren Helms is Available Now! ~ @LaurenEHelms

What started as a $10 raffle ticket, turned into a vacation in Vegas and a whole lot of expectations that neither of them saw coming. For Kevin and Lucy, it was just supposed to be a little fun but when they are served with a large dose of luck, everything suddenly becomes unexpected. Readers will fall in love with this rags to riches romance from Lauren Helms. The 425 Madison series is back with season three and Unexpected Expectations is now live!

Kevin

With everyone around me settling down, I’m happy to continue living my life single and carefree.

That is unless I can convince the concierge, Lucy Wilson at 425 Madison to finally take me up on that offer to go out on a date.

She’s beautiful, friendly, and her compassion for each and every one of the residents is admirable. Something tells me that she doesn’t see herself that way at all though.

This is why I’ve made it my mission to break her out of her overly cautious shell starting with a lucky penny and a $10 raffle ticket.

It was all supposed to be a little fun but when a large dose of lucky graces us, everything suddenly becomes unexpected.

Lucy

He thinks I don’t see him, but I do. Oh yes, I’ve been aware of the all too good looking Kevin Harper for quite some time now.

The thing is, I’m not sure that we have enough in common and I sure don’t have the free time for a social life between my job and school. Dating? That’s pretty far down on the list of things I’d like to check off – not by choice.

That is until Kevin convinces me that a little fun is good for the soul.

What started as a $10 raffle ticket turned into a vacation in Vegas and a whole lot of expectations that neither of us saw coming.

I always believed in fairy tales, but I wonder if what we have is too good to be true. I can only hope that it’s true what they say…

After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

Excerpt

Copyright @ Lauren Helms 2020

My fingers brush the smooth copper coin reminding me that I have a second mission to complete. I pinch the coin between my fingers and walk toward the concierge desk. Just like I hoped she would, there stands one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen. Standing around 5’4, the golden-haired beauty has curves in all the right places. She’s soft around the edges, but I can tell by the way her uniform fits her body that she’s got a sexy as fuck body underneath. Today, her thick locks are pulled low in the back, but her waves fall over her shoulder. I’d love to give that hair a yank in the throes of passion. Shit, I’d love to do a lot of things to this girl.

I’ve flirted with Lucy for a while now, and she’s one of my favorite parts of visiting the building. I’m not a shy man, and I enjoy a good romp between the sheets, but Lucy, I could tell right off the bat is the kinda girl you don’t have meaningless romps with. Nah. She’s a take-home-to-your-momma kind of girl.

My mom would love her.

Maybe, one of these days I’ll ask her out. Heck, I don’t even know if she has a boyfriend or not. It’s never stopped me from flirting, but flirting is harmless. The lady seems damn good at her job, maybe she is just that good at dealing with flirts like me every day.

I come to a stop in front of her, leaning my arm on the desk.

“Heya, Lucy. Seen any tangerine trees or marmalade skies lately?” The Beatles reference earns me a stunning smile.

“Hi Kevin, how are you today?”

I give her my sexiest smirk. “I’m better now that I’m seeing your gorgeous face.” My words hit their mark, and Lucy’s cheeks turn a sexy shade of pink.

“Okay, Mr. Charmer.” She giggles a bit. I always feel like an accomplished mother fucker when I get a girl to giggle. Especially a girl like Lucy, she’s not a giggler. Which is something I dig about her. Besides her looks, she seems to be whip-smart and down to Earth. Most likely, she doesn’t come from money, or why would she be working this gig? She has to deal with the rich and spoiled day in and day out, and she doesn’t lose her cool. I’ve seen her in action, and I’ve seen the way some of the residents treat her. I’ve had to bite my tongue a few times. As Jake has reminded me, this place is private property, I can be banned from the building.

I snap my finger, pretending to recall something important. “I actually have a gift for you.”

Two dainty eyebrows arch in surprise as I lift the penny between my thumb and forefinger.

“A penny?” Her tone is full of amusement.

“Yup. I found a penny outside the building. You know what they say, “If you find a penny, pick it up, if it’s heads, you’ll have good luck.” I smirk as I finish the saying. Pleased with the soft smile that plays at her kissable lips.

“You know, I’ve never told anyone this before…” She leans toward me and lowers her voice as if she doesn’t want anyone to hear. “When I see a penny on the ground, if I notice its tails up, I lean down and flip it over. Hopefully, I can help someone else find a little good luck.”

My heart slams against my chest. Her words nearly cause me to stumble. Who is this woman? She takes the time to flip over a penny just in case the next person who comes along can find a lucky penny? Why does hearing this nearly shatter my charming, nothing gets to me-exterior?

Why?

Because I do the exact same thing.

I clear my throat.

“Don’t worry, Lucy girl, your secret is safe with me.” I extend my hand toward her, and she holds out her hand. I carefully place the penny in her open palm and slowly drag my fingers across her bare hand. I’m expecting the sizzle from our touch, but I don’t miss Lucy’s reaction to our chemistry when I hear her tiny intake of breath.

She closes her hand around the lucky penny and pulls her fist in toward her chest, holding it to her heart.

#NewRelease ~ “My Perfect Girl” by Author: Meghana Sarathy, Genre: Contemporary Romance, Release Date: August 18, 2020, is Available Now! ~ #MeghanaSarathyAuthor @EJBookPromos


Title: My Perfect Girl
Author: Meghana Sarathy
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 18, 2020
My Perfect Girl,

 

 
I need you by my side, now more than ever. I’m growing weak with every passing day, and my control is slipping. If I were as stubborn as before, no matter how badly I wanted to, I wouldn’t allow you to come to me as a reprieve I desperately sought. I would be content with just hearing stories of your success and watching you on TV. Remember what I had told you the first time we met? I would give you flight and watch you soar high. I would never become the wings that would one fine day become the dead weights to bring you down. I did live up to my words.
 
You’ve always wished to hear these words from me but I never gave them to you, afraid that you would never leave me. It’s time you learn the truth about my feelings. We’ve known each other for twenty years now but have spent more time apart than together. Staying away from you, meeting time and again only to walk away on different paths? It hurt more than I could ever put in words. My feelings for you can’t be encompassed in the mere four letter word. It transcends time and space. I could never let my feelings for you die, so I chose to set you free to build your life without me in it. Though I couldn’t always be with you, I’m glad that I was there to save you when you needed me the most. Despite us not being together, remember that our lives will always be intertwined, bonded by our unique love. You’ll forever be my perfect girl.
 
I think it’s time for us to meet again. Yet, I’m hesitating to send you this letter. It’ll just cause you more heartbreak, when all I want is to see you happy. 
 
For the first and last time, I’ll leave this decision to fate. Even without this letter, I know you’ll come for me.
 
Yours truly,
Ayden
 
My Perfect Girl is a standalone contemporary romance. It’s an emotional and angst filled story of two star crossed lovers. It also deals with heavy subject matters and sexual content. Recommended for readers who are 18+.

“I owe you an explanation,” he started and the bird of hope started flapping its wings rapidly. “And yet, testing your responses is fun. So, maybe I’ll make you wait a little more for it.” I wasn’t particularly pleased hearing that. I was enticing enough for him to put me through his ‘tests,’ but I was unsure of whether my heart could take it. And yet, I met his challenge head-on. 

“What do these tests entail?” I asked unsurely. Without saying another word, he took a step closer. In such proximity, his magnificent aura diminished my presence. Despite being just an inch away, he felt out of my grasp. He was at a level that would probably take me years to reach. He would have surely left by then. Why would he wait?

“Pursuit of answers is what spoils the fun,” he whispered. “The secret of enjoying life is simple. Don’t go searching for answers, the kind of choice you make when reacting to situations forges into answers. It’s not right or wrong. They are simply yours and that’s more than enough. Get it?” This is what I meant. He was on another plane altogether. But even as I wrapped my head around his words, my thoughts aligning with his thinking, I caught a glimpse of a bridge that would take me to his plane or horizon. The excited and love-struck part of me was all ready to jump on that bridge unsure of what it was even made of. Even if it turned out to be a hanging bridge, I wouldn’t hesitate. But the logical part of me won out and I just stood gazing up at him, realizing that the wait to crossover would be a very long one indeed.

EGOTISTICAL JERK
BY A.K. MACBRIDE
I had one goal: To learn from Sebastian Ryker.

He was an award-winning physician in his field of medicine.

A genius who could diagnose you with the barest of symptoms.

The best of the best.

Too bad he turned out to be an egotistical jerk.

Mere hours into my first day, I realized that the man I had idolized for years
didn’t live up to the hype.

He was rude, arrogant, and totally full of… himself.

It was clear that my presence bothered him, that I was nothing more than an
irritation.

So, why did I want to melt into a puddle whenever those dark eyes were trained
on me?

And why didn’t I listen when my head warned my heart that he’d break it in two?

I had one goal: To learn from Sebastian Ryker, not fall in love with him.

BRITISH BLACK SHEEP
BY LAUREN SMITH
He is
exactly the kind of man Brie Honeyweather swore never to love…or lust after
ever again: a sexy, arrogant, British bad boy in a designer suit. Alec is the
last person Brie wants to be stuck on an international flight to London with,
but hey…at least they’re in first class.
When their flight has to make an emergency landing in a snowstorm just before
Christmas, Brie and Alec are thrown together in a single bedroom in a tiny
English village. As the snowstorm rages outside, things get intense and
emotions and lust run hot. Alec reminds Brie just how much she misses being
with a man and how easy it is to fall head over heels too fast.

What should have been an amazing one-night stand turns into a week-long secret
romance at Alec’s family estate when Brie realizes her new boss is Alec’s
mother, a British countess. While Brie tries to focus on writing a Christmas
book with the countess, all she can think about is getting back into bed with
Alec.

She shouldn’t fall for the arrogant brit, especially when their lives are
oceans apart and neither of them wants a serious relationship. But Christmas
magic has a way of working miracles. Maybe Santa will bring her a happy ending
after all…

AUDACIOUS FIANCÉ
BY LIZ LOVELOCK
Years
ago, he broke me.
Now he’s
back with a proposition.
He needs
a fake fiancée, and I’m the one he’s come to.
Audacious—
that’s how I would describe him. He was my first love, my first kiss, and my
first heartbreak, from which I never truly healed.
Kane was
once the man of my dreams, on paper—strong, handsome, and a complete charmer.
But the problem is, he has never given a damn about anyone but himself.
I’ve never
witnessed a desperate man until Kane knocked on my door with literally the
proposal of a lifetime.
I must
admit, it’s ironic he’s come to me given the way things ended between us.
It’s
possibly the worst idea ever, but I need the money. How do I not fall for Kane
all over again and risk history repeating itself? Only time will tell.

Excerpt
“What were you
and the guys talking about?” 
Ah, so she was
watching me. I wonder what is going through that pretty little head of hers.
“Nothing much. Aaron was thanking us for offering to work with him and Julie.
He’s nervous. If we can’t help them loosen up, he’ll lose his seat on the
team.” 
“He’ll be fine.”
She brushes it off. 
“I agree, and
that’s what I told him.” We continue to move to the music, but our movements
are a bit off as we get lost in our conversation. 
“What were you
girls talking about?” I stare into her eyes, hoping to get a glimpse of that
interest Aaron was referring to. 
She laughs.
“You.” She pokes me in the chest.
“Me?” That
surprised me but thrills me at the same time. 
She nods. “You.”
She spins around. 
“Dare I ask what
about?” 
She stops dancing
and fans her face. “I’m hot, wanna get a drink?” I guess I’m not going to hear
what she was talking about.
“Sure.” We walk
back toward the house together to grab something to drink. Destiny stocks the
coolers with tons of liquor options. She has mini bottles of wine, wine
coolers, beer, hard tea, and so on. We’ve all tried to kick in for the parties,
but she never allows us too. She hasn’t come out and said it but has hinted
that her parents left her very well off. 
“I’ll grab us
drinks. You grab us some seats.” She offers. 
I walk over to a
quieter area and grab us two empty chairs. I’m really hoping to get her to open
up. Jade and I have known each other a while, but Jade is not one to talk
freely with anyone anymore. 
“Here.” She hands
me a beer. “You know, if you keep drinking beer, your six-pack abs are going to
disappear,” she says with amusement. 
I laugh. “You’ve
noticed my abs?” 
She rolls her
eyes and takes the seat next to me. “Bentley, let’s be real, I’m not dead. I
still see men.” She takes a sip of her drink. 
“It’s the part
about you seeing me that I’m interested in.” I take a pull from my beer. I work
out hard for my abs. Between dance and my community gym, there’s no way I’m
losing my abs to a couple of beers. 
She leans back in
her lounge chair, crossing her long, lean legs at her ankles as she sips on her
spiked seltzer. I never realized how much I noticed her until she became
single, and I made it my mission to make her mine. 
“Bentley, I want
to move on, but when you’ve been hurt the way I have, it’s hard to trust.” She
glances over at me. 
I inch our chairs
a bit closer to keep our conversation private. Leaning forward, I rest my
elbows on my knees. “I’m sure it is, but what if I told you I was willing to
earn that trust?” 
She sighs. “I’d
say, I need to think about it.” She glances over at me. “I swore off dancers
five months ago and now…” 
“Jade,” I say her
name, stopping her from going further. “It’s not dancers you have to watch for,
some men just suck. They are pussies and can’t admit when things aren’t working
out for them.” 
She nods,
watching the waves crash upon the shore. “It’s all over the studio that we’re
going to end up a couple because of the connection we have when we dance.”
There’s uncertainty in her voice. 
“Do you deny the
connection?” I’m not sure she can. It’s obvious. 
She grins. “No,
there’s no denying that.” She sits up and turns in her chair, our legs
intertwined, and she looks me in the eye. “The problem is dancing is my escape.
I leave everything out on that dance floor, my heart, and soul.” She shakes her
head. “I’m not sure I can handle being hurt by another dance partner.”

Halliday was an accident. A chance meeting that changed my life forever.
My mother didn’t have secrets; her secrets had her. After she disappeared, I
had nothing.
Or so I thought.

 

When the invitation arrived, the opportunity to learn about my mother’s past
was too great to pass up. Heading west to meet an aunt I had never heard of, I
knew I was taking a risk, but I craved answers. Instead, I ended up with more
questions, and now the dark history of this town threatens to tear me apart.

 

It’s all about him.



I knew this was a mistake.Stella
Bradleigh was a distraction. Something to play with when my shadows got too
dark.

I spent my entire existence forced to live a life I didn’t want. There was only
one way out.

Or so I thought.

When she arrived, none of us had any idea what it meant. Meeting the beautiful
stranger with the mysterious past, I thought she would be a good time, and then
I could just throw her away like all the others. Instead, she consumed me, and
now she’s made me question everything I know to be real in my life.



It’s all about her.

I knew I was a mistake.Sometimes
what seems most fragile can’t be broken.

★ Folkestone Sins is a series of
interconnected duets.

Fragile Things is the first book in Stella and Poe’s duet, and the first book
in the series. This is a dark, mature high school/new adult romance. It
contains situations and flashbacks that may trigger some readers, language that
may be offensive, and scenes of a sexual nature (all consensual).
Recommended for 18+ only

Excerpt
“Can I
help you?” I ask dryly without standing.
“Don’t
you get snotty with me, you trashy bitch,” she hisses back at me.
“Who do you think you are? There are rules here, and low-class sluts like
you follow them or else.” 
Snotty?
Me?
Momentarily
taken aback by her hostility, it takes me a few beats to register the rest of
her words. Trashy bitch, I can handle. Low-class, well, she’s not entirely
wrong. But slut?
Nuh-uh. No way, no day.
I stand,
pulling myself up to my full five feet eight inches, and get nose to nose with
Fascist Barbie.
“Look,
princess, I’m sitting over here, minding my own business. What the fuck have I
done to offend your delicate sensibilities? Nothing. You don’t fucking know me.
So. You. Don’t. Get. To. Call. Me. A. Slut.” I fire each staccato word at
her. Though I’m genuinely bewildered by this girl’s unmistakable hatred towards
me, I am also seriously pissed off by her shitty attitude. “Back the fuck
up, Barbie, and leave me alone. Shoo.” Flicking my fingers at her
dismissively, I stand my ground, waiting for her and her minions to leave. To
my surprise, she leans in even closer, her cloyingly sweet perfume wrapping
around me like a candy-scented lasso.
“That’s
not how it works here. You don’t get to just show up out of the blue and jump
the line.” She peers spitefully down her clearly after-market nose at me.
“There are rules, and just because you’re a Bradleigh, don’t think they
don’t apply to you.”
