New Release! ~ “Bad Blood” Corrupt Gods Duet Book One, by Authors: Cora Kenborn & Catherine Wiltcher, #DarkRomance is #AvailableNow

Release Date: May 12


Thalia Santiago is the daughter of my enemy.

A beautiful rebel with a single cause.

Impulsive.

Fearless.

And ripe for her father’s undoing.

 

I recognized her the moment she stepped into my casino.

I watched her start the fires that burned her pretty fingers, and then I poured gasoline on the flames.

Now she’s in my debt, and her dues are a shiny gold ring and a vow of deception.

 

I’ll bend her.

I’ll break her.

I’ll turn our mockery of a marriage into a battlefield.

And that river of bad blood that flows between our two families?

I’ll make it an ocean of hate.

Meet Cora Kenborn

Cora Kenborn is a USA Today Bestselling author who writes in multiple genres from dark and gritty romantic suspense to laugh-out-loud romantic comedy. 


Known for her sharp banter and shocking blindsides, Cora pushes her characters and readers out of their comfort zones and onto an emotional roller coaster before delivering a twisted happily ever after.

Cora believes there’s nothing better than a feisty heroine who keeps her alpha on his toes, and she draws inspiration from the sassy country women who raised her. However, since the domestic Southern Belle gene seems to have skipped a generation, she spends any free time convincing her family that microwaving Hot Pockets counts as cooking dinner.
Oh, and autocorrect thinks she’s obsessed with ducks.

Meet Catherine Wiltcher

I’m an International Bestselling Author of ten dark romance novels, a stage 4 cancer thriver, and a self-confessed alpha addict! My writing is best described as sinfully sexy, and my characters always fall hard and deep for one another.

I live in the UK with my husband and two young daughters… But if I ever found myself stranded on a desert island, I’d like a large pink gin to keep me company. Cillian Murphy wouldn’t be a bad shout either…

Movies & stuff…

 

Before I started writing, I worked for seventeen years in the TV and movie industry. I started my career on the hit UK ITV show ‘Blind Date’ before moving into Music TV (MTV, T4) and then movie and drama production, with a brief (three year) flirtation at the BBC’s Natural History Unit thrown in there as well.

 

I’ve been really lucky to travel all over the world with my former job, working with the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, MTV, Walden Media, Warner Bros & 20th Century Fox, amongst many others. All my experiences have helped shape my stories – from the amazing places I’ve visited to hanging out with some really fun A-listers.

Synopsis:

He’s not looking for anything serious…

When his older brother asks him to move back to Whiskey River to help run the family ranch, former Marine Grant McAllister feels obligated to agree. After spending two years recovering from battle injuries, coming home finally feels right. Relishing being back on the land, Grant decides to refurbish the family’s old hunting cabin as his new home. When the artisan designer he hires turns out to be a beautiful, intriguing woman, he hopes to mix business with a little pleasure.

She needs to remain uninvolved…

After the death of her Marine husband, a pregnant Abby Rogers moved to Whiskey River to be closer to her husband’s family and escape her controlling mother. Reinventing herself as a designer, she now focuses on her business and mothering her young daughter. She has no time for relationships—no matter how tempting she finds her handsome new client. But when her wealthy mother threatens to sue for custody of her daughter, Grant’s shocking offer forces her to listen to her heart.

My 📝Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book was even better than the previous McAllister brother’s book; Ex-military hero and a widowed heroine with an adorable daughter. From the moment these two are on the pages together, you can feel more than just chemistry. There is a strong pull and while Grant would love nothing more than to explore that attraction, Abby isn’t looking for a relationship. Abby has enough on her plate with running her small business and raising her adorable daughter. In addition, Abby is fearful of falling in love again. As you can expect, Abby keeps Grant at a good distance and yet she can’t help getting to know him. The way he is with Abby’s young daughter is only another thing to like about Grant. Abby knows her heart is fighting a losing battle.

This book is well written with a steady flow. There are emotional moments and a bit of angst along with a slow burn romance. I didn’t mind the time it took for Grant and Abby to become a couple. The author did a great job at building the friendship first. I also loved the Texas country and secondary characters that gave me even more enjoyment. While I will admit, Grant and Abby had some emotional obstacles to get over, I appreciated the slower pace.

I absolutely love when an author not only immerses me in the story, but puts me there as well. This author painted the perfect scenes, wrote engaging monologue as well as dialogue and all around gave me a five star novel.

While I was provided an advanced reading copy of The Cowboy, this is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Available Now! ~ “Hurricane Summer” by Author Asha Bromfield, #NewRelease #YAFiction #ComingofAge #Excerpt ~ @ashabrom @StMartinsPress

HURRICANE SUMMER by Asha Bromfield; On-sale: May 4th, 2021

Jacket Copy: In this sweeping debut, Asha Bromfield takes readers to the heart of Jamaica, and into the soul of a girl coming to terms with her family, and herself, set against the backdrop of a hurricane.

Tilla has spent her entire life trying to make her father love her. But every six months, he leaves their family and returns to his true home: the island of Jamaica.

When Tilla’s mother tells her she’ll be spending the summer on the island, Tilla dreads the idea of seeing him again, but longs to discover what life in Jamaica has always held for him.

In an unexpected turn of events, Tilla is forced to face the storm that unravels in her own life as she learns about the dark secrets that lie beyond the veil of paradise―all in the midst of an impending hurricane.

Hurricane Summer is a powerful coming of age story that deals with colorism, classism, young love, the father-daughter dynamic―and what it means to discover your own voice in the center of complete destruction.

  • Short author bio:
    Asha Bromfield is an actress, singer, and writer of Afro-Jamaican descent. She is known for her role as Melody Jones, drummer of Josie and the Pussycats in CW’s Riverdale. She also stars as Zadie Wells in Netflix’s hit show, Locke and Key. Asha is a proud ambassador for the Dove Self-Esteem Project, and she currently lives in Toronto where she is pursuing a degree in Communications. In her spare time, she loves studying astrology, wearing crystals, burning sage, and baking vegan desserts. Hurricane Summer is her debut novel.



EXCERPT:

We touch down at 1:46 p.m. local time.
Warm air floods the plane as the doors open, and the sweet
aroma of fruit wafts in the air. Passengers race to grab their
bags as the thick accent comes over the PA once again:
“Ladiez and gentle-mon, welcome to Kingston, Jamaica. It
iz a beautiful day here on the island, and we wish you nothing
but irie on your travels. It has been our pleasure to have you on
board. As always, thank you for flying Air Jamaica.”
I gently shake Mia awake as Patois begins to pour out all
around us. I grab our backpacks from the cabin, and we throw
them over our shoulders before trudging off the plane.
As we make our way through the busy airport, we are surrounded by a sea of rich, dark skin. I feel courageous as we
navigate through the brown and black bodies, and I can’t help
but wonder if the feeling of belonging is why Dad loves it so
much here.
Once we clear at customs, we continue our trek through
the massive airport. All around us, people smile and laugh,
and there is a mellowness to their pace. Most of the women
wear bright colors and intricate braids in their hair, Afros, or
long locks down their backs. An array of sandals and flip-flops

highlight all the bright painted toenails as Mia and I weave
through the crowd.
“Stay close!” I yell, grabbing on to her hand. When we find
the exit, I grow nervous knowing what awaits us on the other
side. I look to Mia. “You have everything?”
She nods.
“Okay,” I whisper to myself. “Let’s do this.”
With our suitcases lugging behind us, we spill out of the
doors and into the hot sun. The heat immediately consumes
me, and it is amplified by the chaos and noise that surrounds
us. The streets are packed. Loud horns blare, and people yell
back and forth in thick, heavy Patois accents. Men argue on
the side of the road, their dialect harsh as they negotiate the
rates for local shuttle buses. Along the roads, merchants sell
colorful beaded jewelry and fruit so ripe that I can taste it in
the air. Women wear beautiful head wraps and sell plantains
and provisions, bartering back and forth with eager travelers.
People spew out of overcrowded taxis, desperate to catch their
flights as others hop in, desperate to get home. The sun pierces
my skin as the humidity and gas fumes fill my lungs. The action is overwhelming, and I feel like a fish out of water. As we
wait by the curb, there is no sight of our father.
“What if he forgot?” Mia asks.
“He wouldn’t,” I reply. “Mom just talked to him.”
“What if he got the time mixed up?”
“He’ll be here.”
But the truth is, when it comes to our father, I can never be
sure.
I fight with this idea as five minutes turn into ten, and ten
into twenty.
The heat blazes, and sweat drips down my stomach.
I check my watch: forty-two minutes.
I pull my pink hoodie over my head to reveal a white tank
005-86455_ch01_4P.indd 12 2/22/21 10:47 PM
HURRICANE SUMMER 1 3
top, tying the hoodie around my waist to better manage the
heat. Without my phone, I have no way of contacting him to
see where he is.
But he said he’d be here.
He gave us his word.
Fifty-six minutes later, our father is nowhere to be found.
My eyes frantically search the crowd as I ponder how much
his word is truly worth. Time and time again, he has proven
that the answer is not much. I turn to Mia, ready to tell her
to head back inside. Worry graces her face for the first time
since we left. Her carefree attitude fades as the concern of a
nine-year-old takes over. I can’t stand to see her like this, and
I’ll do whatever it takes to escape the feeling that is bubbling
inside of me.
We’ll take the first plane out.
“Mi, Dad’s not coming. Let’s go back insid—”
“Yow! Tilla!” A deep voice interrupts me mid-sentence. I
whip my head around to find my father standing a few
feet away with two freshly sliced pineapple drinks in hand.
“Daddy!” Mia screams. She drops her things on the curb
and sprints toward him. My heart does somersaults.
One glimpse of my father and I am a child again.

My new co-worker… not a fan.

After I find a letter in my apartment that foretells me falling for someone, our banter turns into kissing which turns into more and soon, we find ourselves hiding our work affair from our boss and co-workers.

 

What could be worse than having to pretend you don’t love the man you pass multiple times in the hallway every day? Finding out you’re competing with him for the promotion you’ve both wanted your entire careers and knowing that neither one of you will back down.

Available Now! ~ “Reprise” Soul Guardians Novella, by Author Eva Lenoir, #ParanormalRomance #NewRelease ~ @EvaLenoirAuthor

“I loved Reprise. Well written and beautiful.”
Aleatha Romig – USA Today and NYT bestselling author

We are so excited to be sharing the release of REPRISE,
the first enthralling paranormal romance standalone novella in
Eva LeNoir‘s brand new SOUL GUARDIANS SERIES.

Tonight, I walked off the end of the Santa Monica pier.

I know I’m no longer alive, but somehow, I don’t feel as though I’m dead.

This limbo is the story of my life and the reason for my death.

I expected to burn in the depths of Hell.

I expected to pay for my sins.

I expected to suffer for the rest of eternity.

What I didn’t expect was to find my soul mate.

My name is Mara and I’m in Purgatory. Unfortunately, this is not a euphemism.

This is the story of my death.

Meet Eva

Eva LeNoir lives in France with her husband, two sons and the entire food chain in pets: From fish to gerbils to cats and a dog. With a full-time job that pays the bills, she reserves all of her free time to doing what she loves most: Writing.
Eva likes teasing her husband that she should have married a billionaire so she could stay home and write all day. But then he makes her laugh at his silly antics and all dreams of lavish lifestyles evaporate from her mind.

A softie at heart, Eva can be seen crying whenever anything emotional is on TV or the radio. Yes, even commercials. So, if ever you meet her, make sure to bring a box of tissues and a good episode of Grey’s Anatomy to witness the epic tear fest.

There are three things she believes unconditionally: Love really does conquer all, Humans are still inherently good and Wine and Cheese will solve all the problems of the world.

New Release: “IN PLAIN SIGHT” By S.A. Clayton, Genre: Contemporary Romance, is #AvailableNow ~ @saclaytonauthor @wildfiremarket1

Release Date: May 3

Aria

I always wanted to be independent. But having a Navy SEAL for a brother and grandparents that hovered, it was nearly impossible. Then my grandparents died and my brother got deployed, leaving me alone for the first time in        my life.

That’s when I met Carter, and everything changed.

Carter

I was only supposed to watch her. I was never supposed to talk to her, get to know her and crave her the way I did. I knew getting involved would causes problems, I knew falling for her was a mistake but I did it anyway. Damn the consequences.

But what happens when reality comes crashing toward my fantasy? Will Aria understand or will I lose her forever? 


Meet S.A. Clayton

 

 

S.A. Clayton lives in a small town outside of Toronto, Canada with her husband of five years and her scary large collection of books that seem to take over every room.
She has worked on both sides of the publishing industry, both in a bookstore and for actual publishing companies. Although she loved both for different reasons, she found that writing was her true passion and has spent the last few years breaking into the industry as best she can.
She is a lover of all things romance and began her writing journey in her late twenties. Since then, she has immersed herself in the romance genre and couldn’t be happier.
When she’s not writing or reading, she enjoys binging a great Netflix show (Stranger Things anyone?), baking (because who doesn’t love cookies!) and spending time with her family.
