Cover Reveal: Didn't I Warn You by Amber Bardan


cover reveal.JPG












In this alpha-driven romance perfect for fans of Vi Keeland and S.L. Jennings, the price of one woman’s passion is everything she holds dear

Not everything dangerous is bad.

From the moment Angelina laid eyes on him, she fell into a fantasy. Mysterious, foreign, gorgeous, Haithem offered her what she needed most—a chance to feel again.

But Haithem is much more than he appears to be. He lives in a world of danger where everything comes at a price.

For Angelina, that price is her future.

He’s ensured the life she’s left behind is in tatters. Made her family believe she’s dead. He talks about protecting her, about keeping her safe, but she can’t distinguish his truth from his lies. She can’t separate her pleasure from his betrayal.

Haithem warned her. He told her he’d make her heart race, her body come alive, and her most primal needs rush to the surface. His for the taking.

He didn’t say she’d come to love the devil who’s destroying her, even as he keeps her prisoner.








After spending years imagining fictional adventures, Amber finally found a way to turn daydreaming into a productive habit. She now spends her time in a coffee-fuelled adrenaline haze, writing romance with a thriller edge.

She lives with her husband and children in semi-rural Australia, where if she peers outside at the right moment she might just see a kangaroo bounce by.

Amber is an award winning writer, Amazon Bestselling Author, and member of Romance Writers of Australia, Melbourne Romance Writers Guild, and Writers Victoria.

New Release: Alpha Squad: Friends & Foes by Lorelei Moone







Alpha Squad: Friends & Foes by Lorelei Moone
Publication Date: April 10, 2017
Genres: Adult, Paranormal Romance, Novella, Shifters

Alpha Squad has received its very first assignment and recruit Adam King is excited to jump head-first into the action. When the team arrive in the shifter refugee camp in Sevenoaks to investigate some attacks on the local population, the evidence seems clear: the attacker they are looking for is a shifter. And one in particular keeps popping up in suspicious circumstances; Felicity Weir, who works in the camp. There’s just one catch: Adam’s inner bear insists that Felicity is his mate. Now, he’s torn. How can he help make Alpha Squad’s first mission a success, when he can’t endanger the woman who appears to be their prime suspect?

Bear shifter Felicity Weir has been looking after the shifter refugees camping near Sevenoaks ever since they started streaming in from Europe some months ago. She is determined to serve, to help these displaced people build a new home and future for themselves. Then the attacks began and the mood in Sevenoaks grew more and more hostile toward these newcomers, and by proxy, against her. First it was livestock that turned up dead in the local villages, soon after, human victims started to turn up. All the evidence points toward the refugees, but Felicity cannot accept that one of her kind would be capable of such violence. She has no choice but to take matters into her hands and investigate the deaths herself.


With Alpha Squad and the local police hot on their heels, Felicity and Adam must join forces. Will they be able to prove her innocence before public opinion is irreparably poisoned against the shifters, and their chances for a happy future together are destroyed?

Release Blitz: The Banker by Piper Rayne



Cover Design: Djordje Grbic
Release Date: April 5, 2017
 
Synopsis
Who knew my brother’s friend could be Mr. Right, and not just Mr. Right Now? My brother refused to introduce me, so I blame him. If he’d just caved, and introduced me to Jasper, I wouldn’t be in this mess. I mean, really, what’s the big deal? I’m not interested in the guy’s looks. Oh no, I want his cold hard cash. (Be honest, you were expecting that other four letter ‘c’ word weren’t you?) Now, before you go getting all judgy, I’m not a gold digger. I have a legitimate business opportunity for Jasper to invest in. The problem is that my stick-up-his-ass brother is embarrassed that his twin sister invents kick ass sex toys. His problem, not mine. So, I took matters into my own hands. Defeat isn’t a word in Lennon Hart’s dictionary. Using my stealthy P.I. moves, I narrowed my search to a time and place where I knew I could find him. It was completely innocent. A chance meeting that would give me the opportunity to pitch my business. It wasn’t until I sat down across from the gorgeous panty soaking man in front of me, that I realized I wanted so much more than just his money. I could very well want his heart if I wasn’t careful. Apparently my P.I. skills aren’t as stellar as I thought because Jasper had his own secret—and it changed EVERYTHING.

Say You’ll Be Mine by Maria Luis 

A Nola Heart Novel 

Publication Date: April 27, 2017 

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


Preorder: Amazon

Falling back in love never felt this good… When Shaelyn Lawrence returns to New Orleans after twelve years, she has no intention of sticking around long enough to unpack her stilettos and put the “y’all” back in her vocabulary. No, she has a plan – a plan that will get her in and out of New Orleans on the fast track. One, return her grandmother back to health. Two, evade her ex-boyfriend, Brady Taylor. But when her grandmother decides to meddle in Shaelyn’s life, her plan might as well be rewritten. Suddenly, she’s trading flirtatious barbs with Brady at every turn and, oh boy, actually enjoying it. This was so not the plan. Homicide Detective Brady Taylor has one plan: be promoted to Sergeant for the New Orleans Police Department. He’s cut out every possible distraction – that is, until Shaelyn Lawrence reenters his life. She was the one woman who held his heart, and when an unexpected kiss leads to even hotter nights in bed, Brady realizes that the last thing he wants is for Shaelyn to walk away. Now Brady must decide which is more important, his career or the one woman he’s ever loved. But will Shaelyn give up her carefully crafted plans long enough to give her relationship with Brady another chance? Or will secrets better left hidden tear them apart forever?

Cover Reveal: Revelry by Kandi Steiner





Revelry by Kandi Steiner
Release: April 20th 2017


From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey 

Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. 

Her feelings on it aren’t. 

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. 

The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? 
A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her. 

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost. 

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. 

But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. 
What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. 

And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

LIFT 4 Autism Online Auction





LIFT 4 Autism Online Auction:  Monday, April 24 - Friday, April 28
Enter the GIVEAWAY celebrating LIFT

Autism.

A mystery to some. A way of life for others. A cause for all since it is now the fastest growing and most common disability in the US. 1 in every 68 children are diagnosed with Autism. Many of these kids will rely on their parents to some degree, depending on severity, all their lives, with estimated costs between 5 to 7 million dollars in services and care over their lifetime. Many of the services  those living with Autism require are not covered by insurance. It is an expensive and difficult lifelong diagnosis to navigate.

Authors Ginger Scott and Kennedy Ryan started LIFT 4 Autism a few years ago as a charitable initiative rallying the romance reading community in April, which is Autism Awareness/Acceptance month. All proceeds go to this year’s charitable partner Kulture City, who is doing amazing things for Autism families. Discover more about them at kulturecity.org.

Specifically, LIFT 2017 will benefit Kulture City’s lifeBOKS program, which provides families with free kits to curtail wandering, a common and potentially life threatening challenge. Proceeds will also benefit Kulture City’s tablet program, which provides iPads to improve communication for non and limited verbal children on the spectrum to families who cannot afford them.
