๐Ÿ“— New Release ๐Ÿ“— HADES by Leah Diane


Title: Hades
Series: The Shadow Hills Series #1
Author: Leah Diane
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
Release Date: September 20, 2019



"Hades, God of the Underworld. His life was taken from him the day mortals decided what he was and wasn't. Those depictions of him have been nothing but wrong.
Now he's setting his own course and making his own story. He'll do anything to protect his family, even if it means starting a War...
Whose side are you on?"




“What was that?” Zeus asked arching a brow.
“Nothing.” He said looking to Zeus. “I said nothing.”
“You’d be correct in saying that. You’re not to speak at all from here on out? You’re mine.”
There was a sound behind Hades in that instance before he felt something thick and metal snap around his neck. It wasn’t that this was happening that he felt shocked and surprised it was the fact that he felt weak and exposed once it was on. He no longer felt a connection to the dead, he couldn’t find the beginning or end to anything, it was like all his power was just gone.
“Do you enjoy feeling mortal, brother?” He asked as someone heaved him up, he assumed it was Hephaestus doing it. “Don’t worry though, you can’t die.”
Hades stared at him as he was pushed ahead, being forced towards a set of rather large doors. “Where do you want him father?” 
“The black cell for now, we’ll figure out where he’s going after that.” 
Black cell? The hell did Zeus have set up around his palace? What kind of things was he doing to others? Dread ran down his spine for a moment as he was pushed once more until Hephaestus almost gave up and began dragging him in the proper direction. It wasn’t long before he was standing in front of a door that was painted black, Hephaestus unlocked it and then with a rough shove he pushed him inside of it only to slam the door shut almost instantly. 
He was met with silence and darkness, nothing more and nothing less than that. His body sprawled out on the cold damp ground that took over the room he was in and that was honestly where he knew, he was going to die.

New Release: Make Me Fall by Ember Leigh


Title: Make Me Fall

Author: Ember Leigh

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Make Me Fall:

There’s one rule in my family.   Stay away from the Daly brothers.   We were raised to know them as users. Manipulators. But I only ever saw Connor as the enigmatic senior hottie who dropped into fifth period to teach us about the perils of drunk driving.  

 So when my first big girl job out of college ends up with us working at the same company, it’s heart throb city all over again. Except he’s way ahead of the game. Successful, talented, put together.

I’m just a frumpy twenty-something in a quarter life crisis who doesn’t know a glue stick from a makeup highlighter.   He would never want me, even though he’s all I ever wanted in secret. So when we cross paths one night at the bar and one drink leads to another, he slaps me with an offer I can’t refuse.   Accompany him back to Bayshore, flight included.   

Only stipulation? Pose as his girlfriend.   Our families will flip, but I’m not strong enough to say no to those baby blues, especially if it means I’ll have a chance to spend the next two weeks with my adolescent heart throb.

Excerpt

About to cross the street, I look up at the granite faรงade of Pope, Manning, and Price law firm where I’ve slaved away as an intern all summer. I’m extremely lucky to have landed an internship at such a prestigious firm in Chicago. It kind of helped that my cousin is married to John Price’s sister. But I will also admit that my 4.0 GPA didn’t hurt either. 

As I exit the elevator, my friend Dafny smiles from behind the reception desk as she holds up a coffee.

“Hey, Sam! I got you a cafรฉ mocha. I hope it’s not cold since you’re in later today.”

“Thanks, Daf.” I plop my butt on her desk to talk for a minute but knock over her coffee with my purse, spilling it on her papers.

“Oh crap, hold on and I’ll get some paper towels.”

I take off running across the hall to the bathroom where there’s an “out of order” sign on the door. It doesn’t faze me, so I plow right in, proceed to trip over someone’s legs, and face plant on the bathroom floor. Totally stunned, I lift my head and shake out the cobwebs. There’s a plumber on the floor fixing the sink. 

“Shit! Ouch.” Sitting up to my side, I come face to face with a shirtless male wonder. He just sits there across from me on the tile; his elbows rest on his bent knees with this sexy dimpled smirk on his face.

“Are you having a bathroom emergency? Can I be of any assistance?”

“What the hell are you doing sprawled out across the bathroom floor!” 

My hands throb from the forceful contact with the tile floor, but I scarcely register the pain. At first, my anger consumes my senses, but that reaction is quickly replaced with my preoccupation with gawking, captivated by the man in front of me. Emerald green eyes playfully stare back at me from a face that looks vaguely familiar for some reason. Thick, wavy dark hair falls haphazardly over his forehead as he runs his fingers through it to tame it back into place. The planes of his muscular chest and arms move seductively under his golden skin as he effortlessly jumps to his feet and holds out a hand to help me from the floor. Speechless, I take it, and he lifts me quickly off the floor, pulling me directly against his muscular torso. The heat of his body permeates through my clothes, and I melt against his firmness. He holds me close, his lips almost touching my ear as he uses the same harsh words I did seconds before.

“What the hell are you doing ignoring the sign I put on the door and how about paying attention where you’re walking?”

I put both hands on his chest and push him away as hard as my strength will allow. It’s like trying to move a brick wall, though, and he barely budges. His gaze travels downward to my chest heaving with deep breaths. This only entertains him further as his eyes change to darker emerald. I quickly look away flustered by the heat that rises in my core.

“Well, I had an emergency and needed paper towels right away to wipe up coffee someone spilled.” Aren’t you an arrogant asshole! Too bad all those good looks are wasted on you.

He removes his arms from around me and steps back toward the sink. Pulling down a handful of paper towels, he turns around and holds them out to me.

“Here you go. Try to be more careful next time.”

Raising my chin, I try to grab the towels with a huff, but he won’t let go. His eyes sparkle mischievously when I look up at him to show me, he means no real malice. We pause, I soften my expression, and he smiles relinquishing the towels. Then his fingers glide up my wrist, sending warm pulses through me. As I make my exit with one quick look back his dimples are deep and a full set of white straight teeth taunt me. Laughter echoes off of the bathroom walls behind me. Taking a moment to compose myself, I lean against the wall in the hallway. What the hell just happened? I use the paper towels to fan myself and reflect on the excitement from him holding me so close. Then I remember that I left Dafny with coffee all over her desk and run to help her clean up.

Sydney used to make plans. All her life she’d trained to be a ballerina, but that “plan” had turned out to be nothing more than a pipe dream.

Never again would she be crushed by pointless dreams.
Fate, however, has plans for her.
Styx Hardwick isn’t big on plans. As a tattooist at House Of Payne, he’s the black sheep in a family full of pragmatic cops. Now that his twin brother’s getting hitched, all eyes turn to him, the last of the single Hardwick siblings. Getting through his twin’s wedding is gonna be hell.
