Cover Reveal: Unmasking Charlotte by M.D. Saperstein and Andria Large



 They say that once you go black, you never go back. I am not completely sure who "they" are, but they obviously never met me. I guess that maybe I am an exception to the rule. I went black, and then I went back.
      Maybe that sounds cynical.  Maybe that sounds flippant.  Maybe that even sounds racist.  But I am none of those things.  I am just a realist, who through an unfortunate turn of events, learned the hard way that everything is in fact black or white.  At least for me it is, and always will be.  

       But then there is Calvin King.  The thorn in my side, the pain in my ass.  He is what some would call the perfect man - an imposing businessman, an even more impressive ladies’ man.  Every man wants to be him and every woman just wants him.  At least that is what I hear. I’m not admitting to anything beyond that. 

      What I do know and will concede to, is that my resolve is tested as soon as I meet Calvin. He ticks every box off my checklist - sexy as sin, tall, dark, rich, intelligent, funny, and...Black. My body craves just the thought of him. How can I possibly keep him at arm’s length when he is the only man I want and desire?  And it doesnt help that he kisses like a god and sets my body on fire. Crap! Dont ask me how I know that, he doesn’t play fair. 
 
Most importantly, I can’t let him unmask me, it’s my only defense. Like I told you before, I already went black, and I am so not going back.
Unmasking Charlotte is book 2 of the Taboo Love series and picks up where Hey There, Delilah left off.  For this taboo, we tackle interracial relationships. As with Hey There, Delilah, it is a standalone - so don’t worry if you haven’t read Hey There, Delilah, yet - with a HEA. That means no cliffhanger!  Oh, and expect to see some of your favorite characters.

 I just sat down at my desk when my phone beeps, letting me know I have a text. I glance at it where it's sitting next to my computer and see that it's Delilah, so I pick up my phone and swipe my thumb across the screen to open it up.
Lala: Meet me for lunch. We need to finish our chat!
Shit!
Charlie: I'm really busy today, rain check?
Lala: You will not avoid me Charlie! Lunch today, 1:00!
Charlie: I'm not avoiding, veerrry busy...
Lala: Don't make me start tweeting to the whole world that you named your vibrator, Shemar
I gasp out loud, That bitch!
Charlie: Don't you dare bring Shemar into this!
Yeah, that's right, I named my vibrator Shemar, after Shemar Moore from Criminal Minds. Can you blame me? That man is fine!
Lala: And don't think I didn't notice that Calvin looks an aweful lot like Shemar Moore. Coincidence? I don't think so! :}
Oh no! She wouldn't.
Charlie: I don't know what u are talking about
Lala: I am pretty sure that Calvin follows my twitter. Just sayin'
Charlie: You wouldn't!
Lala: Try me! Lunch 1:00, TODAY!
Charlie: Fine!
Lala: Great! See you then ;)
I snarl at my phone. Delilah can be an evil bitch sometimes. I know she means well, but still, she's threatening to tell the whole fucking world about Shemar.
Andria Large Bio



Andria is married and a stay at home mother with two crazy little girls and two psychotic cats. She doesn't go anywhere without her precious iPhone and a purse full of animal crackers. She used to be obsessed with the Backstreet Boys, but now is only mildly obsessed (still goes to every concert when they are in town). She loves cartoons and Disney movies, and can probably recite every line from Dumb and Dumber. Humor is a must in her life; otherwise, it would be completely boring. Pepsi is her weakness, along with anything chocolate. She can’t sing to save her life, but she pretends she can when she is alone in her car with the music blasting so that she can’t hear herself. And don’t mess with her family because she will fuck you up. She loves to read Romance. Paranormal, Scottish, Military, Police, Firefighters, Athletes, Cowboys and M/M are her favorite. She is not so much a fan of YA, though. If you haven’t been able to tell from reading her books, she likes - whether she is reading them or writing them - lots of hot steamy sex. Andria loves her fans and is always willing to chat. She works hard on her books, does not get offended easily, and has a pretty thick skin when it comes to negativity toward her work. She welcomes constructive criticism because she feels that is how one betters themselves, by taking that constructive criticism and using it. Andria’s books are her art, they are pieces of her, and she can only hope that people will like what she does. For those who don’t, she asks that you be respectful of her art. You don’t have to like it, but you don’t have to be mean about it either.





M.D. Saperstein 


Hi! My name is M.D. Saperstein. I am currently a stay at home mom with my two gorgeous kids. I wasn't always a full time mom, though. After graduating from the University of Florida - Go Gators! - I attended law school at Stetson University. I spent the next 10 years practicing law. I also spent some time counseling mental health patients in an out patient psychiatric hospital. But, until having my own children, my most rewarding job by far was licensing families to receive abused and neglected foster children.
So, that brings us to today. In my spare time, while my children were napping, I started editing novels for other authors. The more I edited, the more ready I felt to write my own. I just needed a new and exciting story line. Once Hey There, Delilah was conceived, the ball starting rolling very quickly. I hooked up with fellow author Andria Large, and we decided to tackle it together. Best decision ever!
I spend most of my free time with my husband and children. But when I get some "me" time, I love to read. Mostly romance and erotica, but I don't discriminate - a good book is a good book, no matter the genre.

Cover Reveal: Who I Am by Shanora Williams

WHO I AM Ecover



add-to-goodreads-button31




Synopsis

Some stories aren’t easy to tell.
Some situations aren’t easy to relive.
But I was raised to be strong—to hold my own. Because of it, I was hurt, torn down, beaten and even had my heart snatched right out of my chest.
But I’m ready now. It’s time for me to speak up. You want to know what really goes on inside my head, well I’m right here.
Real. Raw. Intense.
This is all me. Roy Sykes. This is my story, and trust me… its far from pretty.
 
Excerpt
 
Without another second to waste, I open the door and hop out. Loads of screams fill my eardrums, and I fight a smile. I guess, after a while, it feels good to be wanted. To be appreciated. I can’t ask for more enthusiastic fans.
Deed climbs out with his so-called “lucky drumsticks” in hand and waves at the wild girls behind the ropes. They holler at the top of their lungs, clambering over each other, wailing, and stretching their arms for a feel of us as we walk by.
“Roy, you’re so fucking hot! I love you!” one girl says. I don’t know who says it, and I don’t bother looking to find out.
“Deed! Let me have you!” That one isn’t for me, so I keep chugging.
“Roy! Please! Let me touch your hair!” Okay. I admit that one makes me laugh, but again, I don’t look.
“Roy Sykes… remember me?” For some reason, that calm, familiar voice catches my attention. I jerk my gaze up, and as soon as I meet the sky blue eyes I never thought I’d see again, I stop dead in my tracks. The girls continue to holler and reach for me, but I’m in the middle of the runway, shocked… stunned.
She looks the same—actually better. Her hair is longer, her face still flawless. She’s wearing a shimmery silver dress, revealing her long, creamy legs, with heels to match, and seeing her like this—hotter than ever before—leaves me completely speechless.
Taking one last step forward, close enough to see her clearly among the thick crowd, I part my lips, a part of me not wanting to say her name ever again, but a part of me yearning to roll it off my tongue. “Rose?” I murmur.
I’m sure she can’t hear me over the screaming, but I know she’s read my lips because she looks from them to my eyes and nods. “Yes,” she says, thrilled. “It’s me, Roy. Rosemarie Beretta.”

Release Day: Legal Affairs Vol.1 by Sawyer Bennett

An Adult Contemporary Romance Serial Series

By Bestselling Author Sawyer Bennett
 
 
 


Legal Affairs: Objection is FREE for a limited time.

 

One year ago, I graduated from law school and embarked on a career as a purveyor of high priced legal shenanigans.

Six months ago, my boyfriend dumped me when I thought he might be proposing.

Two weeks ago, I got drunk and joined a secret sex club.

Two days ago, I had a torrid one-night stand with a stranger.

Today? Well, today I’m contemplating having an affair with my boss.

Matt Connover is all kinds of forbidden temptation wrapped up in a deliciously wicked package, and he’s made it clear… he’s only interested in sex.

My name is McKayla Dawson but everyone calls me Mac. I work at the powerhouse firm of Connover & Crown, LLP, where the law has never felt so hot.

But between you and me, I’m afraid my heart won’t survive these Legal Affairs.





Why I Decided To Write A Serial

By Sawyer Bennett

 

Serials can be frustrating to some readers. Me personally? What bugs me about them is the waiting time between releases and wondering when the end will come. So I kept that in mind when I launched into Legal Affairs and decided to release them quickly, cheaply and with a definite ending.

I wanted to try a new project, coming off the heels of the Off Series which was very successful. I had a very specific formula in mind… sexy + funny. I also wanted to try my hand at writing a legal themed book since I’m a lawyer by first trade. With this new formula, I thought… “Why not try a serial, where I could make each volume like an episode of ‘must see TV’ where you had a single story line that was actually part of a bigger picture?”

Legal Affairs was soon born of those thoughts. I decided to limit the series to just six volumes, each about 12,000 words or so, with the series finale coming in at just over 17,000 words. I bumped up the heat factor, so beware… this is hotter than the Off Series. I blushed when my mom read it. Blushed again when the lawyers in my firm read it.

Overall, I loved how it turned out. I felt I was able to convey a realistic struggle between the hero and heroine, with each volume having a true conflict that was resolved for that particular story line, but still made you wonder if they would get their HEA in the end.

More than anything, Legal Affairs is a test of sorts. I wanted to see how well I could mesh my knowledge of the law into a steamy romance. My hope is that if Legal Affairs is successful, I will do a full length novel series with a similar theme. Maybe a law firm filled with sexy, quirky lawyers that may be a bit unethical but in the end want justice for their clients. I’ll add in plenty of snark, humor… and oh, yeah… hot sex!!  Think of it as Sex In The City meets Ally McBeal.

 
Legal Affairs is a serial romance with a whole lot of hot and a little bit of funny. It has six volumes that will be released every two weeks, the first one, entitled Objection, on January 10, 2014.


Legal Affairs – Objection – releasing January 10, 2014
Legal Affairs – Stipulation – releasing January 24, 2014
Legal Affairs – Violation – releasing February 7, 2014
Legal Affairs – Mitigation – releasing February 21, 2014
Legal Affairs – Reparation – releasing March 7, 2014
Legal Affairs – Affirmation – releasing March 21, 2014

 

Legal Affairs: Objection is FREE for a limited time. Each installment thereafter will be priced at .99 cents.

**Debut new adult author S.C. Ellington knocks it out of the park with this steamy contemporary romance.
 
After a horrific breakup with her longtime boyfriend, Brooklyn Caldwell is completely disenchanted with the notion of mingling with the opposite sex.

For all his success, Logan is ensnared in the coveted world of unequivocal wealth and power, but behind closed doors is taunted by his own demons and an undeniable need to atone for a monumental mistake.  As the two embark on a tumultuous obstacle course saturated with unknown twists and turns, Brooklyn is left to question whether she can endure the journey ahead.
