BLOG TOUR: My African Craving by Audrey Flynn SPOTLIGHT



My African Craving
by Audrey Flynn
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Inkspell

Blurb

The Nights are Hotter in Africa...
When Erica Knight arrives in Lebombo Game Reserve for her first African safari she has no idea that her life is about to be changed forever. As an executive for a mining company she believes that negotiating the mining rights for the Lebombo Reserve will be a slam-dunk, but she didn’t count on locking horns with the reserve’s enigmatic owner, Jean-Luc de Graaf. In the heart of a wild African landscape full of beauty and danger, Erica and Jean-Luc both stubborn and passionate find themselves on opposite sides of an escalating conflict. With the Reserve threatened by vicious poachers and runaway fires, they are thrown together unable to contain the scorching attraction between them.


Far away from the rat race of New York Erica feels the stirring of a different drum, ancient and irresistible. But surrendering to the wild would mean she would have to submit to the powerful attraction to Jean-Luc and she isn’t ready to give up control just yet...

Excerpt

A slight breeze stirred, and despite the fires, Erica found herself shivering in her thin sweater.
“I think I’ll just go back to my room and grab a jacket.”
She stood up, and so did Jean-Luc.
“Fine,” he said. “I’ll just grab my rifle.”
Erica had forgotten that because out past the dining area, the camp was unfenced, guests were forbidden to walk around alone after dark and had to be accompanied by an armed ranger. She picked up her backpack while Jean-Luc took his rifle out of its case.
“This way.” He ushered her out of the boma and onto the path toward her room.
She shuddered slightly as his hand touched the sensitive area of her upper arm. “Wait, what is that noise?” she asked.
They both paused mid-route. Across the still night, they stood motionless, and listened to a strange, throaty growling sound, followed by a kind of deep bark.
“Lions,” said Jean-Luc casually. “Sounds like they’re mating.”
“Really?” asked Erica. “I thought lions hunted at night.”
“Actually, during mating season, they will have sex for three days. For all of that time, they don’t hunt, or even sleep.
Don’t worry—they are actually quite far off. When lions are near, I can smell them. You are perfectly safe.”
Erica felt safe from the lions, with a six-foot-four armed ranger at her side. But was she safe from the ranger? Or more to the point, was she safe from the desire she felt building in her at every second?

RELEASE DAY BLITZ: Withered by Heather Killough-Walden SPOTLIGHT




Now Available!


Withered
(A bridge novella of the HKW Universe)
by Heather Killough-Walden

Blurb
During an ultimate war with evil and the battle that brought it to an end once and for all, The Kings and Queens of the Thirteen Realms joined forces against Hatred, Lust, and Death… and in the ensuing catastrophic chaos, the fabric of time and space was fundamentally fractured. Two dimensions collided, bringing changes both large and small, sudden yet eternal. 
It has forced the Sovereigns of the Thirteen to exist in a brand new world that only they are aware has changed.

In this brand new world are new humans, and alongside them in the shadows and hidden doorways, new non-humans. Some are strange and splendid. Others are wonderful but wrong.

Melody Margaret Tannym is eighteen years old, and she goes by the name Mimi amongst her friends. Mimi is a dragon. However, one of her friends is quite special too – or about to be – and neither one of them has any clue. This new world carries with it new forces, and those forces play upon the young man, altering him as much as the altered world and plunging Mimi and her companion into the dangerous underworld depths of the new supernatural kingdoms.

Worse yet, the colliding dimensions weakened a very old barrier, one that has kept a primordial and powerful atrocity at bay for countless millennia. Only one creature, one darkly brilliant soul, stands between this evil force and the new world. But Bantariax the Great Black Dragon can only remain vigilant against his deadly foe for so long. For even he in his ancient draconic splendor has his weaknesses… beautiful and precious beyond measure. And new worlds have brought new chances for his enemy to prey upon them.

“Withered” is a bridge novella by Heather Killough-Walden linking The Big Bad Wolf series, The Lost Angels series and The Kings series to the upcoming Monsters series. 

Monsters are coming soon.

Love is the last thing on Bryce Cooper’s mind because survival, sobriety and fatherhood are all that truly matter.

Velocity is going on tour for the first time since Bryce's trip to rehab. Clawing his way from the depths of hell is harder than the vocalist and rhythm guitarist expects. Between his bandmates’ paranoia, his ex-wife’s insults and temptation everywhere, he’s almost afraid to trust himself.

It seems like an impossible dream to lead a normal life. Every step forward is met with two steps back. However, he has to find a way. His children are counting on him.

Can Bryce stay on the straight and narrow with only his bandmates’ support? Will anything help him discover himself again? What will he do if his heart leads him down a path to disaster? All will be revealed in the third Rock Star Romance of the Velocity series.

BELLA.jpg


Bella Jeanisse lives for rock music. Addicted to concerts, Avenged Sevenfold, fictional rockers, and blasting music in the car, she can’t get enough. After her father turned her on to Queen, there was no going back. Of course, it didn’t stop there. Playing guitar became a pastime, which didn’t turn into a career… until she started to pen her fantasies and publish them.

Originally from Brooklyn, New York City, she grew up with access to clubs like L’Amour and CBGBs, hung out in Greenwich Village, as well as had plenty of friends in bands. No wonder rockers stayed on her mind. Bringing her ideas to life was a long time coming.

She is now living near Tampa, FL with 3 kids and 2 grandkids, as a single mom. Her family supports her writing even when it seems to take up more time than they feel is necessary. Can’t stop the muse, ya know!

Besides erotic rock star romances, Bella also writes about wild bikers, hot college men and more.

Excerpt




Chapter Twelve Excerpt





I didn’t think about it. I didn’t even hesitate. I tugged her hand, pulled Elise against me, and covered her mouth with mine. Her startled gasp met my tongue, and a bolt of desire shot clean through me.


This morning, our kiss had been a measured exploration. But not this time. This was a conquest. And even though I led the kiss and it was my arms that wrapped around Elise and gathered her tight against me, I was the one conquered.


Even as I plundered her mouth, I knew surrender was my only option. How could I resist her? She was fearless. She was flawless. She’d redefined what I knew of beauty. Yes, anyone could see she was beautiful. But who else but me knew how brave and capable she was? How ingenious and resourceful? How genuine?


She knew all of my secrets, and still she opened her mouth to welcome my outlaw tongue. And those were her hands diving inside the shelter of my jacket, skimming over my thin dress shirt and leaving behind a signature of heat.


I had no business getting hard in the shadowed hallway of my parents’ house on the night of our escape. With Elise Cormier, no less. But under her touch, I was like a brick. I’d never wanted anyone like this.


I had to stop. I knew this. But I just wanted to keep kissing her. To lie down with her. To listen to that delicate cry she sang into my ear as my lips moved to her neck. But what I wanted more than anything was time. Time to discover all of her secrets. I wanted to hear everything she wanted, and I ached to give her whatever I could.


But I could have none of that. Especially time.

BLOG TOUR: Mistress for Penndrake by Tammy L. Bailey SPOTLIGHT



A Mistress for Penndrake


by Tammy L. Bailey


Genre: Historical Romance


Publisher: Entangled



 



Blurb


The Marquess of Wesley is out for blood. For a year, Lord Wesley has tried to


undo the devastation his father left to Penndrake, their ancestral home, only to


discover the man gambled it away right before his death. Now Wesley is being


blackmailed by the new owner into marrying a woman he’s never met in order to


get it back. But his intentions are less than honorable...


At one and twenty, Miss Kate Holden intends to become a governess, having


sworn off all men years ago. However, her plans are halted when she receives a


daunting letter from her cousin about a Lord Wesley. Ignorant of the name, and


the devilish marquess that wears it all too well, she nearly ends up compromised.


Refusing to fall prey to Wesley’s skillful seduction, Kate decides to turn things


around on the rake. But the high-stakes game between them soon leads to her


losing the last thing she expected...her heart.

Excerpt


“So, to what do I owe the honor of your divine company, Miss Holden?”


She quirked a neat eyebrow and opened her rose petal lips, a motion he watched with sober interest. Everything about her stirred a subtle, yet alarming attraction. All of this forced him to keep reminding himself the woman existed only as a means to an end, nothing more.


“My lord, I’ve come…” She hesitated, he believed, to gather enough courage to go through with her reason.


“You’ve come,” he repeated in an overly husky voice, trying to fluster her further.


She puffed out her cheeks and tempered a few silent words. He wanted to chuckle. He refrained, instead, by hiding his mirth behind a tight fist.


“You think my discomfort is amusing, do you not?” she asked, seeing right through him. If she expected an answer, she didn’t wait to hear it, her body set in motion at a hurried pace in his direction. “Edward told me—”


Wesley shot out of his relaxed stance and met her halfway. He towered over her, trying to intimidate her. To his dismay, she didn’t cower, she didn’t even flinch.


“Yes,” he said, bending down low enough to see a hint of amber reflected in her distrusting eyes. “Go on. I’d love to hear more about your dear cousin, Miss Holden.”


As he waited for her response, the light from the open window shifted, bathing his guest in the brilliant radiance of the late-day sun. She remained silent, her hands flying to the pocket of her dress, as if to protect whatever lay inside. Beyond any doubt, Wesley believed she knew something. She would not be here, would not have come swathed in mystery and risking her own reputation, if this did not involve Edward’s guidance in some way.


The curiosity of what she held compelled him to keep her at Penndrake until he found out what Edward Garrett wanted her to know. Out of patience, he eased away from her.


“Miss Holden, may I suggest we take a walk in the gardens? The day is almost gone, but there is enough light to see us through, allowing us to discuss this further without interruption.”


Again, she opened her curved lip but said nothing. Suspicion sprang from her demeanor, her gaze darting


around the room as if searching for the closest exit. Instead of fleeing, however, she motioned with a surrendering nod, stepping forward until the coat of arms over the fireplace caught her attention.


He studied her as she examined the Wesley motto, her lips moving mutely as she read the three words embedded at the bottom of the shield. Shameful heat rose from deep inside him, and he lifted a rare prayer to the heavens for her not to know the meaning of those powerful words. Maybes he was too poor to have been schooled like her giddy cousins.


Even so, he studied her curious face until she turned to him, her eyes void of any awareness or comprehension. Breathing a sigh of relief, he held his arm out for her to take. She paused, a timid and uncertain hand coming up to rest on his sleeve.


Outside, the day had faded into dusk and dazzled the sight, impressing upon it a majestic beauty of pearl-pink altostratus clouds. Behind them tumbled a blanket of slate-gray vapors, an ominous forewarning of twilight.


The much cooler breeze tugged at the tails of his heavy jacket. He slowed his pace and continued to escort her down a flight of stone steps onto a spacious unblemished lawn. They walked for several hundred yards in silence, him admiring her wondrous interest. On their way to the garden, they passed the stocked fish pond and the honeysuckle-laden labyrinth.


Toward the east, he halted at a stone fountain, centered in the thickest part of the coppice. Large shadows turned the evening darker, the chilly autumn wind transforming Miss Holden’s dewy skin to a nice pink. With his arm outstretched, he persuaded her to a wrought iron bench on the opposite side of where they stood.


“Please have a seat with me.”


He pointed, and she accepted his invitation, much too carelessly, he thought.


She sat down first, her behind resting on the farthest edge of one side. Not to frighten her, he followed suit, allowing enough space to fit her three female cousins between them.


After a quiet moment, he pronounced, “I believe you don’t think too highly of me, Miss Holden, and I would like to persuade you otherwise.”


She drew back and gawked at him with wide sage-like eyes. A wisp of her hair tumbled down into her thick lashes.


Unhindered, she blew it away with a quickly exhaled breath.


Her refinement, or lack thereof, surprised him. Most women—no—all women of her lower station practiced the art of how to appeal to a man and his interests, enough so to attract an amiable and sensible husband. Perhaps, however, Miss Kathryn Holden had no reason to draw the attention of the opposite sex, especially since she had another companion in mind. He tried to convince himself it didn’t matter either way.


Her experience might play to his advantage.


Still, he sought the truth on the matter, just because his thoughts weren’t able to let it go. “Forgive me if I seem too impertinent—”


She scoffed. “You’ve just now thought of apologizing for something you’re about to say? How extraordinary.”


He chuckled and shook his head. “Sarcasm does not become you, madam.”


“Neither does naivety.”
