Book Blitz & Giveaway: The Truthseeker [Soulweaver 02] by Heidi Catherine!


   A bony hand grabbed him on the arm and he jumped, tightening his grip on Maari.
   ‘Do you seek the truth?’ croaked the voice of an old woman.
   The room filled with soft light and the Truthseeker began to take shape. She was small, maybe only five feet in height. Her back was crooked and her grey hair was wild. She wore a black cloak that wrapped around her shoulders and fell to the floor.
   ‘No,’ he said, trying to pull away. He wanted to get as far away from here as possible. But the Truthseeker’s grip was firm.
   ‘I seek the truth,’ said Maari, fire burning in her eyes.
The Truthseeker let go of Nax’s arm and turned away, sliding herself through the interior door.
   ‘Are you sure?’ Nax whispered. Maybe the others who’d come before them were right. Sometimes the truth is better left undisturbed. ‘Let’s get out of here.’
   Maari looked at him, her eyes filled with tears. She turned and slid through the door behind the Truthseeker.
He went to follow her, but the door was sealed. He pulled at the rubber flaps, but they were sealed tight. He couldn’t get through.
   ‘Maari,’ he cried.
   What was going on in there?
The room plunged into darkness and he sank to the floor, shaking with rage, fear and cold.
He hugged his knees to his chest and waited. He wouldn’t leave without her. He’d die here if he had to. Was this why the woman in his dreams had warned him to stay away from her? Had she known Maari would lead him into danger? Still, he didn’t care. He couldn’t leave her. His spirit was bound to hers.
   The seconds ticked by as minutes. The minutes passed as hours. He waited. Would he ever see Maari again?
   He kept his eyes focused in the direction of the door, waiting for her to emerge. It didn’t matter. His eyes may as well have been closed for all they could see.
   A noise startled him and he stood, feeling the seal of the door with his fingertips. The cold rubber became soft skin. It was Maari.
   ‘Are you okay?’ he said, pulling her into his arms.
She didn’t wrap herself into his embrace as he expected. She felt stiff. Uncomfortable.
   ‘What happened?’ he asked, wishing for a sliver of light so he could see her face.

Can she learn to forgive before her time runs out again? Or will the truth destroy her?

Maari doesn’t care that Nax is an outcast. She’s drawn to him in a way she can’t explain, determined to teach him to embrace the strange world they live in. But just as his heart opens wide, a force greater than them threatens to tear them apart.

Nax and Maari travel to the depths of the ocean to visit an old woman known as the Truthseeker. She unravels the mystery behind their connection, and warns them to run as far away from each other as they can. But staying away isn’t possible when you’ve found the person who brings your soul to life.

Far away, two sisters are born into extreme poverty, quickly discovering the key to their survival is their strength together. It isn’t until one sister threatens to steal away the love of the other that their bond shatters, and a true struggle for survival begins.

As these two stories merge into one, we learn that when soulmates meet, there’s nothing that can keep them apart. Except love.

The Truthseeker is the stunning continuation of The Soulweaver, winner of Romance Writers of Australia’s Emerald Pro award.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Paper Lipstick by Kelsey Elise Sparrow!


   “You play video games?”
   I don’t know why it shocks the shit out of people that I spend time in front of the damn Xbox. I enjoy taking out some of my aggression on some of those lifelike characters just as much as the next person. For the most part, it’s just a damn good way to kill time. Assholes in the crew talked so much shit about me not knowing what the fuck they were talking about last year that I promptly went out and purchased a system. I figured out what games they were playing and started practicing.
It took me too fucking long but I got good at them. The next time I was challenged in a wrestling game, football, some Star Wars, or Destiny challenge, I wiped the fucking floor with my opponent.
   Some of the guys in the crew have this tournament going with a game called Tekken. It’s an advanced form of Street Fighter. There’s one name at the top all of us want decimated because he talks major shit. Jared is one of the few people whose big mouth I can actually tolerate. Not that he speaks often. When he does there’s no stopping him. It may go on for a good five minutes. Some meaningful shit comes out of his mouth, but it’s a rarity. His shit talking is worse because of the damn smirk. The smirk that says you know he’s better than you. I want to wipe that fucker off his face but I’m not good enough yet. I believe I may not have to be after spending my time with a certain gorgeous blonde.

Lipstick kisses and caviar dreams don’t have a place in my life or his.
~ Max (Rebecca Robbins)

I'm a bad ass bitch. It's a truth of mine. I live it and breathe that shit. No, I'm not conceited or full of myself. It's just something I've discovered over the years.
I'm damn good by myself, always have been, always will. What I didn't know is I can be improved upon.
Enter the equally bad ass and hella charismatic Deckard Camden. Who, the hell, told him to be this jaw-droppingly gorgeous, mountain of a man, in comparison to my little self, projecting a wall of defense that rivals my own?
Nobody prepared me for the sensual words that would fall from his lips or the massive ... peace he would bring to my life.
Damn sure didn't get me ready to be Deckard Camden's wife … wait what?

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Flash [Penmore 02] by Malorie Verdant!

My life is a living nightmare.
Everything that matters to me always gets taken away.
He was only eleven and I still couldn’t protect him.
I won’t let her matter.
The girl with mermaid eyes and flashy red hair.
I won’t be the reason heaven meets hell.

Cooper Daniels just enrolled at Penmore State University because he made a promise to a friend. He had it all planned out. He only had to be at the school for the fall semester and then Cooper would vanish. He’d say goodbye to the fancy college and embrace a lifestyle that was expected of an ex-con. The only problem was Millie.

Camille Monroe, Millie to her friends, has been struggling as a single Mom. However, with the help of her daughter’s grandmother and uncle, she had finally re-enrolled at college and was going after her dreams. She wasn’t going to be distracted by boys, night shifts or a ghost that refused to leave her alone. Nothing was going to tempt her away from a better future, not even the devil himself.

Author bio

Malorie first started reading romance books when she was twelve years old.

Her mother handed her a copy of Nora Robert’s Midnight Bayou and with resignation said, “Here you’ll love it, just skip the sex scenes.”

It was the only time she ever got to rebel as a kid, because after that day she spent her entire adolescence (and a lot of her adulthood for that matter) sitting inside devouring every romance book ever written.

Cover Reveal: Hothead [Irresistible 04] by Stella Rhys!

He's the hottest player in Major League Baseball, the most notorious playboy in all of Manhattan...

And my fake fiancé for the next three months.

I was drunk-dialing my ex the night I met him.

Six-three, sexy as sin and so incredibly rude I could smack the asshole smirk right off his face. Long story short, we got off to a bad start. But when the tabloids interpret our sparring as Drew Maddox "groveling" with a "mystery brunette," his agent presents us both a proposal:

Shacking up as a couple this summer.

It’s an alleged “win-win.” I need to prove to my ex that I'm fine. Drew needs to prove to his team that he's stable. Thanks to his on-field brawling and never-ending lady drama, Drew Maddox has suddenly found himself on the trade block - which means he needs a fast, easy
way to show the team that he's settled down.

Hence this fiance thing.

Our fights are real, our kisses are fake, and thanks to the nonstop heat between us, I’m starting to mix up all my signs. But whether it’s real or fake, there’s one thing I do know:

I’m already addicted.

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Cry For You by Shaniel Watson!


   I smooth my hand across his chest in the early dawn, knowing it’s almost time for this to be over. He has to leave soon. I press my lip over his heart, where my name is scrolled. “Why did you never get rid of it?”
   “Why would I?” His sleep-roughened voice rumbles through his chest, wakening my senses in a curl of sensual need. “I didn’t want to erase you from my life. It would be like erasing a part of my soul.”
   He knows exactly what to say, as if he has a direct line leading straight to my heart. I shake my head. “You say these things—”
   “That I mean.” He rakes his fingers through the hair at the back of my head, pulling my face closer to his. “I’ve never lied to you about my feelings for you. Why would I start now? No one has ever touched me like you do, Lacey.”
   “That the truth?” I ask, feeling the answer in the direct line he has to my heart. He nods, kissing me tenderly, pulling my body half over his so I feel the rising need for me in his body.
   Parting my thighs, I straddle his hips, deepening the kiss I can tell he wants to keep light and gentle, but I know he wants more as much as I do.

You know how the story goes. Don’t you?

Boy meets girl. Eyes lock, they fall in love, live happily ever after.

Not this story.

Lacey baby, was what he called me. He said I was too young for him but who cares, we were both young. He stopped resisting and we fell in love.

I thought we were going to be forever. We were. Until the unthinkable happened savagely ripping through us, ripping us apart, and forever turned in to never.

He was gone. I was left to pick up the shredded pieces. Punished for the life inside me I couldn’t give up. The very thing I didn’t know would bring me out of darkness years later, could be the very thing that brings us together again for a second chance.

If we can only survive the ripple effects of the pain of the past and what lies ahead…

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Possessive by Willow Winters!

Some men are born with a black heart and a tainted soul.
I never liked to admit it back then; I thought I could outrun who I am and lie to myself.
But I accept the truth now.

It’s in my blood and in my bones. In every impure thought and desire.
I tried to leave. To do the right thing and walk away from my past.
But then she came back into my life.

Stumbling towards me and looking up at me as if I’m the one she’s been looking for all this time.
As if I could be her savior and take her pain away.
If only she knew.

She turns me into what I hate most about myself.
Selfish, ruthless, possessive.
I tried to be a good man. To be cold and distant and warn her away.

She should have taken the hint and run.
She didn’t…
And now she’s mine.

In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!
