Promo: Depths of Desire by Carolyn Faulkner






 Depths of Desire by Carolyn Faulkner 
 Publisher: Blushing Books 
 Published: May 10, 2017 

Tagline: 
She loved the outlaw, but can she love the lawman?   

 Blurb:
 After moving out West, Mary Rose Caldwell inherited both a saloon and an inn from her beloved uncle when he passed away. Her parents wanted her to return to Virginia and marry some boring blue blood, but she would have none of it.

Maybe she would never get married – not if it meant submitting to the will of her husband. No, she was too intelligent, ambitious and independent for that! But one day, a small band of cut-throat bandits invade her establishment, holding her and one of her employees hostage. The leader is none other than the dreaded El Diablo – the most feared outlaw in the territory.

He assures her that he will protect her from his unruly cohorts, but who will protect her from him, the Devil himself? Especially when she begins to feel something for him… something she had sworn she would never feel for any man!

  Publisher's Note: This is a story of the old West, where outlaws know no boundaries and men believe in taking women in hand by doling out a stern dose of discipline.

(updated version from a title previously released in 2007.)

Cover Reveal ~ Disgraced by Natasha Knight




Title: Disgraced
Author: Natasha Knight
Genre: Dark Romance
Cover Design: Shanoff Formats
Photographer: Wander Aguiar
Release Date: May 26, 2017



Blurb

Disgrace: the condition of one fallen from grace.

She is my forbidden fruit. The one temptation I cannot resist.

The first night…
I rescued her from an attack in the seedy underground of New York City.
The second night…
She told me the first of many lies.

She thinks she can keep me out of her world, but she’s in over her head. Watching her, being near her, it gives breath to something dark inside me. Something primal and forbidden. Forbidden to me.

Because in six months, I’ll be an ordained priest.

And she complicates things.

She thinks she is my disgrace. Truth is, my fall had begun the moment I’d laid eyes on her.

Photographer: Golden Czermak FuriousFotog 

Publication Date: May 16, 2017



Chance knew love once—a long time ago. She died when they were eighteen and the best of him died with her. Since then his work on a ranch in Montana has allowed him to keep his distance from people and from happiness. 
Eighteen years later, he may be ready to start living again—maybe. He’s watched all his friends find love and embark on the next stage of their lives. Part of him would like to do the same; part of him would rather cling to the past. 
 He’s hoping that a trip to the Oregon Coast, and a couple of weeks away from his normal life, might help him figure out how he can move forward and maybe even be happy. It’s taken him eighteen years to get this point, but a chance encounter on the beach will make him want to figure it all out in just two weeks. 
 He’s come a long way, but can he really open his heart up to happiness—and to Hope? 

  Chance Encounter is the first of three books in A Chance and a Hope Series. 
  These are not standalone reads. In fact, when you get to the end of this story, you may be faced with a cliffhanger – or you may not. 
The choice is yours! What do I mean? Well, when you reach the end of Chapter Twenty you’ll be left with a warm and fuzzy Happy-For-Now. 
Then you’ll be faced with a choice – read on, all the way up to the edge of a cliff where I’ll leave you hanging, or stop right where you are and wait for Book Two to come out on June 13 and read Chapter Twenty-One then. 
If you love a cliffy, you can have one. If you detest a cliffy, you don’t have to deal with it! 
Also, if you’d rather wait until the entire trilogy is complete 
you’ll only have a couple of months to wait. 
  Book Two: Finding Hope releases June 13 
Book Three: Give Hope a Chance releases July 11




About SJ McCoy

Hi, I’m SJ, a coffee addict, lover of chocolate and drinker of good red wines. I’m a lost soul and a hopeless romantic. Reading and writing are necessary parts of who I am. Though perhaps not as necessary as coffee! I can drink coffee without writing, but I can’t write without coffee. 
 I grew up loving romance novels, my first boyfriends were book boyfriends, but life intervened, as it tends to do, and I wandered down the paths of non-fiction for many years. 
My life changed completely a few of years ago and I returned to Romance to find my escape. I write ‘Sweet N Steamy’ stories because to me there is enough angst and darkness in real life. 
My favorite romances are happy escapes with a focus on fun, friendships and happily-ever-afters, just like the ones I write. These days I live in beautiful Montana, the last best place. 
If I’m not reading or writing you’ll find me just down the road in the park – Yellowstone. 
I have deer, eagles and the occasional bear for company, and I like it that way.

Even as his brain says no way, the Barracuda is a woman nobody can work with, his white-knight complex forces him to offer her a job as his very overqualified temporary secretary.
A wealthy couple who ordered a designer baby which wasn't delivered contacts Dave for help. To get answers for them, Dave has to get inside an overly-fortified fertility clinic going undercover with Susan as his temporary wife. The situation inside is worse than they imagined, and soon their pretend 'til death do us part could become very real unless the two alpha personalities learn to work together to stay alive.

Cover Reveal: Thursday Afternoon by Beth Rinyu



SYNOPSIS

I'm just your typical working girl who never mixes business with pleasure. Although some may say my business is all about pleasure. For the past four years, I’ve allowed my profession to define me, distancing myself from family, friends and most of all love. Hating the reflection I see staring back at me in the mirror, I muddle through each day with my heart sealed off like a tomb, until two strangers enter my life.

One teaching me the true meaning of friendship.

The other teaching me the true meaning of love. 

She’s everything I’m not. 
Humble, loving, and devoting her life to others.
We’re an unlikely duo who are polar opposites, but at the same time so alike.
Never in a million years could I be friends with someone like her...until I was.

Then there’s him.
He’s my Thursday afternoon client.
Just like all the others: handsome, rich and charming…yet so very different.
Trying to overcome a painful past, he seeks out my services as a refuge, only to find that we’re opening our hearts to each other in ways that neither of us could've imagined.
I could never fall in love with someone like him...until I did. 
And now I'm finding myself longing for it to be Thursday afternoon all week long.

Cover Design by Marisa at Cover Me Darling

*Sneak Peek*

"Oh, Simon? I happen to love that name.” 
“Do you?” He played along.
"I do. It reminds me of a caring, genuine, handsome man. One who has a huge heart, but sometimes doesn’t have the best judgment in people or business deals.” 
"Really? Because I can assure you, I make excellent deals every day with my business, and as far my judgment in people goes…” He moved closer and whispered in my ear, “I don’t let too many people into my life, so you can bet that the few I do allow in are pretty special.”



ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. 

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I'm a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of Calgon!


Thanks for taking the time to learn about my books and me! If you decide to read them (and I hope you do!) please be sure to go on and review it for me - yes, even if you don't like it!



Thank you for touring with Jo&IsaBooks

Prison.
The place where dreams fade and hope dies.
That’s what it’s meant for the five years that Garrett has been behind bars. But now hope is on the horizon and he’s daring to dream again: small dreams, small hopes.
Getting his GED would be a start. If only his prison-appointed teacher Miss Ella Newsome wasn’t so damn sexy.
As Garrett and Ella start to play a dangerous game, the price could be higher than either of them have guessed.

This story first appeared in the anthology HOT FOR TEACHER in 2016. It has since been extended with new scenes, more heart ache and even more heat.

Description

“She wants to get Wilde. She should be careful what she asks for.” –Ethan Wilde There are worse things in life than owning a thriving business in the heart of Manhattan and being labeled one of the Big Apple’s most eligible bachelors. Trust me, I know. I’ve had some bad $h!t go down before I got to where I am. No matter what curve balls life lobs at me, I take a swing. If I strike out, I learn, adjust, and make the best of it. For instance, when an injury ended my dream of playing in the Bigs, I could’ve sunken into self-pity. When my fiancĂ©e dumped me about thirty seconds after the major league scout did, I could’ve become a drunk. Instead, I got off my ass, finished my senior year of college, and put the degree my baseball scholarship earned me to work. Seven years later, I’m living a new dream. I’m single, well off, and about to take my business to the next level. I’ve got plans for A Pound of Flesh Fitness gyms to open nationwide. Except the one person standing between me and my dream has become a fantasy. A hot, redheaded fantasy. My competition…my business enemy, is five feet nothing and packed full of dynamite, and I can’t get her out of my mind or my fantasies. Her sexy as sin body, her sultry voice, and her bold personality that’s just as fiery as her hair may have gotten under my skin, but there’s no way I’ll let her stay there. Because no one gets to Ethan Wilde. There’s just one little detail I can’t stop wondering about. The one thing that has brought men down since the beginning of time. I can’t leave it alone until I know for sure: Is she a true redhead? Bestselling author Shelly Alexander brings you this brand new series of super sexy, sizzling hot heroes. It’s a fun, flirty, and dirty series written in the male POV. If you like your romance hot and fun, then grab a comfy spot under a fan and enjoy! If you like them sweeter with a touch of steam, try Shelly Alexander’s Red River Series.
