“She holds a nation’s fate within her shaking hands. She
wears a crown that never should’ve been hers.  A golden lie. A dirty
halo.” 
Bastard daughter of a second-born duke, Emilia Lancaster has
spent her life as the royal family’s dirty little secret. Shunned from both the
palace and the public eye, for twenty years she’s lived as a
commoner… despite the regal blood running through her veins.   
But when the entire royal family is killed in a deadly
attack, the line of succession swiftly changes course. With her ailing father
appointed king and no legitimate heirs in sight, Emilia is pulled from the
shadows and thrust into a destiny she never wanted.
If this were a fairy tale, the palace would be paradise. In
reality, with a father she barely knows on the throne, a deadly assassin still
on the loose, and enemies around every gilded corridor corner — the callous,
captivating Lord Carter Thorne chief among them — it feels more like a prison
to Emilia. One filled with unattainable expectations, unfamiliar customs, and
undesirable suitors. 
They want her to behave like a good little girl. 
They want her to put on her glittering crown and keep her
mouth shut. 
They’re about to be disappointed. 
She may have agreed to be their princess… 
But she’s no one’s puppet. 
DIRTY HALO is a royal romance about an ordinary girl who
inherits an extraordinary legacy. Filled with forbidden love, murderous plots,
and machiavellian intrigue, it is recommended for mature readers only.

Excerpts: I like to be admired by her…

I look at her neckline while my hands caress her hips. The smooth material excites me, running with my hands over her warm body takes me back to the night in Hector’s bathroom, when I felt my body against her, wishing to be naked and to taste her skin, her warmth, her smell. I put my hands on her ribs. She doesn’t stop me while I look at her with desire. She looks intensely at my lips, and I would like to eat hers, bite them, lick them.

My hands are under her breasts, I stop and caress them up to her neck. I touch her neck up to her right earlobe, then with my thumb I touch her lower lip, caressing it.  It’s not possible to look at each other without desiring more, so I put my mouth on hers.

“Asher…” she whispers against my lips, closing her eyes.

I feel my blood boil, I feel my veins stretching vibrating under my skin. I touch her leg with my knee, while our lips continue to move in a sensual dance, full of shivers and expectation…

Cover Reveal: LOVE MACHINE by Kendall Ryan

 

 

A best-friends-to lovers standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan.

After a rather uncomfortable ladies’ night involving a cucumber-wielding instructor with judgy eyes, I’m forced to admit my weaknesses. Rather than point blame at my lack of a sex life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work.

As a junior executive who’s clawed her way up the corporate ladder, failure is not in my vocabulary. Confident and bold in other areas of my life, I have to admit it’s time to up my bedroom game.

Asking my friend Slate Cruz is really the only option. Slate is like a walking billboard for sex. The man gets more ass than a toilet seat. There’s no way I’ll want more from this playboy than a little inspiration to revive my inner sex kitten.

Except, what happens if I do?

Cover Reveal: Simmer by Stephanie Rose

Title: Simmer
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Release Date: May 16, 2018





Blurb

Simmer (verb): to stew gently below or just at the
boiling point; to be in a state of incipient development
My life was always at a simmer… only stewing, never going
anywhere. I was left to fend for myself when it came to affection or love, so I
learned to go without. 
I refused to let them see how broken and lonely I was; it
was much easier to hide behind a false reality. I didn’t want anyone’s pity. I
didn’t need it. Pity wouldn’t put food on the table or keep a roof over our
heads. That was all me.
Now, I have a second chance at a dream long forgotten. It
demands hard work and sacrifice—with absolutely no distractions. A recipe I
already know all too well, raising a daughter on my own. 
Drew Kostas is everything I’ve ever wanted but couldn’t let
myself have. He’s younger, gorgeous, charming—and relentless. He sees beyond
the hardened shell I’ve built to protect myself, coaxing out a softer me I
don’t recognize. 
It doesn’t matter how I melt in his presence when the heat
between us threatens to boil over. 
That’s the thing about heat. When it rises, everyone gets
burned. 
Especially when they’re foolish enough to fall in love.

Excerpt

My phone
lit up next to me on the couch and I grabbed it, answering in a rush.
“David,
what’s wrong?” My heart raced so fast I thought it might explode out of my
chest.
“Uh, is
this Tiffany?” a man’s voice I didn’t recognize responded.
“Yes, who
is this?”
“I have a
Jagger here who needs to speak to you. Hold one second.”
My heart,
which had settled down the moment I realized David wasn’t on the phone, began
to pick up the pace again. Why would Jagger be calling me? He made it clear he
wanted nothing to do with us on Saturday.
I made sure
to keep that information from David until the next day. I wanted him to enjoy
his birthday. He was hurt but loved the Ninja Boy comics Jagger bought him for
his birthday gift.
As for me,
I cried a bit. Like a dork, I put the candy bracelet he got me under my pillow.
It kept making weird crunching noises when I moved so I ended up cradling it
next to my chest. Succumbing to the sugary smell, I chewed half of it. I fell
asleep with bits of candy stuck to my lips and chin. When I woke in the
morning, I realized it was too tempting having the thing in my bed.
It now sits
on my dresser like a broken dream.
There were
loud scraping noises and a boom before I heard Jagger’s voice.
“I got it,
Benson. I got it.” There was a pause before he started to speak again, “It’s
not Benson, then what’s your name? Leo? I’ve been calling you Benson the whole
time!”
Jagger
started to laugh. I wondered if he realized I was still on the phone.
“Jagger?” I
said.
“Tiffany!
Oh, sweet Tiffany. It’s so good to hear your voice.”
“Nice to
hear from you. Is there something you needed?”
“You. I
need to tell you something. But not here. This place is too grimy,” Jagger said
and I heard some yelling in the background. “Sorry, Benson. Right, I mean Leo.”
This back
and forth had to stop. It was hard to say goodbye to him. I admit the warmth in
my body upon hearing his voice made me a little eager but was this just another
goodbye? Did he need to have me sign another document only to walk away again?
“I’m coming
over,” Jagger said.
“That’s
really not necessary. Can’t you—”
He hung up.
I stood and
went into the bathroom, inspecting my appearance. Running my fingers through my
hair, I wondered if I should put it up. Maybe a little makeup or a skirt?
Leaning my
hands on the gray marble countertop, I sighed. What was I doing? Jagger’s job
was everything to him. It was selfish to expect him to risk so much for me.
The buzzer
went off.
“Wow, that
was quick,” I mumbled to myself.
I did one
last once-over before leaving the bathroom and headed to the front door.
Pressing the call button, I said, “Hello?”
“Sweet
Tiffany.” I heard Jagger with clarity and trepidation.
Buzzing him
inside the building, I waited. My hands fumbled with my fingers. My hair chose
that moment to settle stray strands onto my cheek, then my nose, and every
second I was pushing away another ticklish wisp.
I needed to
do something so I went to my cabinet of delight in the kitchen and grabbed a
lollipop. It was cherry and I could barely taste it thanks to my nerves.
Finally,
there came a knock on my door.
Taking a
deep breath and a hard suck, I made my way to the door and opened it. Jagger
stood there, with his hands bracing the doorframe and his head hanging forward.
When he lifted it, I noticed the normally disheveled brown hair was in even
more disarray.
Even his
red T-shirt had stains on it. There was a laziness to his eyes and when he let
go of the doorframe, he stumbled forward, into me.
“Sorry. I’m
sorry,” Jagger said as he clumsily worked himself out of our embrace.
That’s when
I smelled him.
“Are you
drunk?” I asked.
He stood
straight, but swayed. He brought his finger and thumb together in front of us
to pinch the air. “A lot. I’m a whole lotta drunk.”
Wonderful.
Now I have to deal with a drunk man in my home.

Cover Reveal: Once Upon a Time by Blair Babylon

Title: Once Upon a Time
Series: Runaway Princess: Flicka #1
Author: Blair Babylon
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Amy Queau, QDesign
Release Date: April 3, 2018

Blurb

When a real princess falls in love with a man who is
definitely not a prince, a royal fairy tale turns dangerous.
ONCE UPON A
TIME,
 there was a beautiful princess, Flicka von Hannover, who lived an
enchanted life. She jetted around Europe staging charity events with friends,
had married a handsome prince in the most spectacular royal wedding of the 21st
century, and should have lived happily ever after.
But then she
found the handsome prince in bed with a duchess.
 And then a
coffee shop barista. And then her own goddamn secretary.
Finally, the
beautiful princess had had enough of the cheating prince, and she ran away.
Once she had stepped out of the royal fairy tale, life became grayer,
grittier, and rougher. The prince didn’t like that she had left and sent
henchmen to take her back to the castle. Her worried royal brother sent people
to look for her, too.
But the princess
didn’t want to be found. 
The princess got a job and made her own way in
the world. Even cut off from everyone she knew, she was more resourceful than
she had thought she might be. She did okay. From hiding, she sent legal
separation papers and then divorce documents, but the prince wouldn’t sign them.
He said he wouldn’t let her go. Even in these modern times, the prince could
lock the princess up in a dungeon of legal forms and provisions that she
wouldn’t be able to break out of. The prince wanted his princess back because
he couldn’t take his throne without her.
Until a man
walked into her bar one day, one who was frankly not a handsome prince.

He was the last
man on Earth the princess should have fallen in love with.
