 99c PREORDER SPECIAL 



Rebellion brews inside Milenda’s heart as the date for the Trials approach. As the
heiress to the throne of Natale, she is forced to choose a consort from the survivors of the
grueling quest across the desert.

Milenda’s heart belongs to Jaali and wants no part in the ancient and cruel ritual, but the
Elders—the true rulers of Natale—will not back down.

Jaali was brought from the far North as a child slave. His only chance to be with the woman
he loves is to volunteer for the Trials, no matter how dangerous or how much Milenda
objects.

Together they begin their journey of discovery and rebellion against the Elders. But will their
love be enough or will they lose everything they've fought for?







Natalina wrote her first romance in collaboration with her best friend at the age of 13. Since then she has ventured into other genres, but romance is first and foremost in almost everything she writes. Her novel, We Will Always Have the Closet, is her first published romance.

After earning a degree in tourism and foreign languages, she worked as a tourist guide in her native Portugal for a short time before moving to the United States. She lived in three continents and a few islands, and her knack for languages and linguistics led her to a master’s degree in education. She lives in Virginia where she has taught English as a Second Language to elementary school children for more years than she cares to admit.
Natalina doesn’t believe you can have too many books or too much coffee. Art and dance make her happy and she is pretty sure she could survive on lobster and bananas alone. When she is not writing or stressing over lesson plans, she shares her life with her husband and two adult sons.

Can one girl save the world?

From USA Today bestselling author Jillian Dodd comes the first book in a sizzling new series filled with action and adventure. Fans of The Selection and The Hunger Games will discover a heart-pounding thrill ride of espionage and suspense set in glittering high society.


An eighteen-year-old covert agent is pulled out of training before graduation by Black X, a espionage group so secret even the President of the United States doesn't know it exists.

For her first mission, she must go undercover as the long-lost daughter of a recently deceased billionaire, infiltrate high society, and protect the Prince of Montrovia from assassination. But Prince Lorenzo is known as the Playboy Prince for a reason and his sensuality and charisma add a whole other level of complication to her mission.

She knows that her every move is being watched, but what she doesn’t know is that the Prince is just a chess piece in a bigger game that will have world-wide ramifications. And that Blackwood Academy, the place she has called home for the past six years has secrets of its own.

With a kickass heroine and intrigue, this page turner will have you spellbound and drooling over your new book boyfriend. - H.M Ward, NYT Bestselling author

Release Blitz: LOVE IS MORE THAN SKIN DEEP by MARY CRAWFORD











Shelby Lyons was thrilled to be starting her career as a teacher and impulsively stopped into her favorite shop to get a tattoo to mark the occasion. Little did she know that the decision would change her life. 

Getting a tattoo is not something attorney Mark Littleson had ever considered, but after he discovered artwork from his late brother, it seemed like a perfect tribute. Mark is busy raising his daughter and he knows better than to be drawn to the ethereal blonde woman with the soothing laugh. Yet when he finds her withdrawn and crying, he can't help but be drawn in. Will he discover that love is more than skin deep?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 
Mary Crawford
I have been lucky enough to live my own version of a romance novel. I married the guy who kissed me at summer camp. He told me on the night we met that he was going to marry me and be the father of my children. Eventually, I stopped giggling when he said it, and we just celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary. We have two children. The oldest is in medical school, where he recently found and married the love of his life, and the youngest is tackling middle school.

I write full time now. I have published over a dozen books. I volunteer my time to a variety of causes. I have worked as a Civil Rights Attorney and diversity advocate. I spent several years working for various social service agencies before becoming an attorney. In my spare time, I love to cook, decorate cakes and of course, I obsessively, compulsively read.

Author: Candy Crum

Release Date: September 6, 2016
 

Zeus, king of the gods, has been stubborn for far too long. Because of his refusal to reconnect with the humans, the gods' powers have gone unused. The longer the gods ignored who the were, simply to obey him, the weaker they became.
Prophecy states that Cronus, the father of Zeus, Poseidon and Hades would rise and when he does he will claim Olympus and Earth. Starting with his sons, he will kill the Olympians and enslave the humans in the process.
The only hope for the Olympians to defeat him, would be for the gods to make a difficult choice:
Trust in themselves or trust in their human descendants.

 Only $2.99!

Blurb:

One Man…
Graham Hall tormented me for a month when I was getting SkinnyCakes ready to open. He was my contractor and all around handyman, taking care of all the jobs Max couldn’t handle, or didn’t have time for. Every day I would come in and find Graham, a sweat soaked t-shirt clinging to his tight body. The man did things to me that no man ever had. His muscles had muscles. He was big, from his shoulders to his feet. Broad shoulders, biceps the size of a small child, a chest the rippled with his every move, not that I was looking.
That’s not true. Graham was a man who demanded you look at him.
And then there was the kind, gentle man beneath that made-for-awesome-sex body.
Any woman with a pulse would have been tormented by him.

One Woman…
He came for the puffy treats and stayed for the precious woman.


Abby is moving on with her life. After she caught her husband cheating, live and in person, she divorces him and starts living for herself instead of doing everything for him. Abby opens her own bakery, changes her look, and moves out on her own for the first time ever. The only thing she isn't ready to do is date.
Graham helped Abby get her bakery up and running. As a carpenter he loved the challenge of turning the blank space into a bakery. Even more than that, he loved getting to know the beautiful new tenant.
When Abby's ex learns she's moving on with her life and doesn't need him, he wants to remind her of everything she gave up when she left him. Everything Abby was happy to leave behind.
Now Abby is stuck between the man who made her feel needed, but never wanted, and a man who makes her feel wanted, but she doesn't need him. Abby needs to figure out what she wants - the man from her past, the one who promises her a future, or the present she's fallen in love with, alone.


So Many Challenges…
Ever so slowly, he lowered my body, letting me feel exactly how turned on he was. “You want a man who can’t wait to have you, huh? A man who doesn’t care about anything besides your pleasure? Don’t you dare claim I’m not that man, Ab.”
The rasp of his voice skittered down my spine and settled between my thighs. There was a promise in his voice. One I knew he’d deliver on. But I had to make sure.
“Prove it.”
The words were barely out of my mouth when I was back in Graham’s arms. I met his kiss with a clash of teeth. My nails scraped down his back, and his hands lifted me until my legs wrapped around him. Neither of us could stop. Buttons flew as I tore his shirt open. The seams of my dress stretched to their limit as he tugged it from between us and over my head. He groaned when he saw the bra and panties I had on.





 
A Precious Giveaway…
During release week (September 6-11) you can enter to win a $25 gift card when you buy Puffy & Precious! All you have to do to enter is email Mary (mary (at) maryethompson (dot) com) the ninth word in Chapter 9 and you will be entered to win! 




Meet Mary...

Headshot 2016

Mary E. Thompson grew up loving to read, like a good little girl. Many nights she would fall asleep with the flashlight still turned on as she hid under the covers trying to finish the last few pages of a book. As an adult, the light from her ereader means she doesn't need a flashlight, but she still stays up way too late to finish a book.
When Mary's not reading, she's playing with her two kids or living out her own real life romance novel with her hubby. She has a weakness for chocolate, especially when it's paired with peanut butter, and has been known to have a bad day just because there's no chocolate in the house. Unless there’s wine. Then everything is okay.
Mary grew up in Buffalo, New York and swears she's the only local to never ski or snowboard. Soccer was always her sport, with a couple adventures white water rafting and skydiving to keep things interesting. Mary moved to South Carolina for college but missed Buffalo every day. Yeah, she thinks she's crazy, too. She somehow convinced her South Carolina born and bred hubby to return to Buffalo to raise their kids and live out their lives. He’s still not sure what he was thinking.

I have been an avid reader for most of my life. When I was younger I use to sit and fill spiral notebooks full of stories for my grandmother. As I got older I took the jobs needed for raising my boys as a single mom until I met my now amazing husband. I have stopped working in the last three years and started promoting authors, then I blogged and reviewed for authors, which lead me down the path to writing and creating characters and stories. I love creating behind the scenes with my writing getting to use my imagination and write the story as it comes to me. My youngest is now a senior in High School leaving me with some spare time on my hands to be filled. I am loving the people I am meeting and the support system I have found.
