Release Blitz: Shamrock by Janie Crouch

Title: Shamrock
A Linear Tactical Standalone
Author: Janie Crouch
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: December 4, 2018

Blurb

Every mission
has a price.
He never meant for her to pay it.

Aiden has never left anyone behind. Not a comrade and certainly not an
innocent. But when an undercover mission goes wrong, he’s forced to abandon a
woman trapped in a human trafficking ring.

Violet learned brutally that no one is promised a happy ending. She knows Aiden
blames himself for his part, but she refuses to let her abduction define the
rest of her life.

She won’t be a victim again. And she’s going after what she wants: Aiden.

Watching Violet transform herself into a fierce warrior is the sexiest thing
Aiden has ever seen. The honorable plan would be to stay away from her–let her
heal and grow without the shadow of his mistakes clouding her progress–even
though every instinct tells him to claim her for his own.

But when they discover the danger they thought they’d left behind is closer
than ever, they’ll have to face their deepest fears and fight
side-by-side in order to survive.

Excerpt
Violet knew
what she wanted.
No more
being passive. No more agreeing to what might in fact be good for her but
wasn’t what she really wanted.
“You
respect me,” she said gently.
The relief
flashed and Aiden’s hazel eyes. “Yes. I have nothing but respect for
you.”
“Thank
you,” she whispered, trailing her fingers through his thick hair. “And thank
you for getting me home safely last night. And like I said before, thank you
for getting me out of that hellhole a month ago, for figuring out that I was in
trouble when to anyone else it just looked like a normal part of that
situation.”
His brows
furrowed. “You’re welcome for all those things. But there’s no need—”
She put her
finger up to his lips. “I just wanted to say it one more time to make sure I’d
been clear. Because now I’m done saying thank you. And I think you better take
me inside. Otherwise, Mrs. Mazille and her neighborhood watch might get quite
an eyeful with what I’m planning to do to you.”
There was
only so much a man could take. A line where he snapped. A great deal of his
Special Forces training had been spent learning how to push that line as far
back as possible.
But when
Violet’s fingers reached for the hem of the T-shirt covering her body and began
pulling it off, Aiden found his line very clearly.

Bria du Mont and Damien du Sky have been in love for as long as they can remember. Neighbors and best friends since childhood, they planned to be together forever.

That is until Damien seeks to propose to Bria on her eighteenth birthday and finds her in bed with another man.

Bria has no memory of how she ended up in that situation, but Damien still leaves her. Traumatized by his departure, she develops broken heart syndrome and becomes emotionally numb in her search for closure.

Excerpt

“I am done, Bria,” he says, his bloodshot eyes sealed on mine, his voice cracking. He raises a hand exposing the inside of his palm as I gawk at the fine and long lines carving it. “I have to give you something. Here is my bleeding heart. It has ceased beating in my chest, Bria. It’s yours and always has been. Mend it or smash it!”

His words and torn expression snap something inside me, but before I sink to the floor, he grabs me and scoops me into his lap. Tears run down his pain-distorted face, and I can’t take it any longer. I join him, and we weep in earnest for what feels like an eternity. Then, with my head resting on his chest and his arms wrapped around me, we sit here on the floor, an entangled mess of broken hearts and bodies and sad sounds.

I feel a strong urge to caress him, but I halt my attempt to comfort him. Maybe I am completely mad because I’ve always felt this aching need to be there for him, to ease his pain. I can’t rein in myself even after everything that’s happened. He’s the one I can never turn away from, my other half. I feel truly possessed and under the spell and power of something that, although it feels foreign and distant, is still strong enough to make me surrender my all to him. I am far from caring or cringe he will hurt me anymore. I’ve been on the receiving end for a long time now, and it has never deterred me from trying to mollify his pain. Yes, I suppose he might show some sort of disturbed rejection and hurl cruel words my way, but, as always, I will take it for what it is—his particular coping mechanism.

“How can you even touch me?”

I freeze with my hand midway in the air because the last time we were together, he said he despised and loathed me, so, of course, he will not like my caress. Likely sensing my turmoil, he clasps my hand in his and trails kisses down my wrist. His gesture has something reverent in it, and the moisture he leaves on my hand mesmerizes me. I can’t seem to peel my eyes away.

“Bria, how can you wish to touch and comfort me? How can you caress the same person who caused you the most pain? Comfort the one person who’s not at all worthy of it? How can you touch the same person who said those horrible things to you back then, terrible lies out of the mouth of a complete sinner?”

I just stare at him in disbelief, and a fine line spreads on his forehead. Maybe I’m already dead and haven’t noticed it. Perhaps I took too many aspirin with too much wine. I look at the aspirin foil. It is intact. My body trembles with Damien’s closeness, but my mind is far away. He snatches the packet from my hand, and his brows snaps together.

“What the fuck are these, Bria? What are these pills?” He shakes me, but I still can’t utter any words. “Answer me, Bria, or I’ll force you to retch! Do you really enjoy making me lose my damn mind? I am on the brink of my sanity here, and you are not helping.”

The force of his voice rattles the walls. Is he for real? I manage to find a few words. “It’s aspirin. I have a headache,” I lie.

“Stop deceiving me, Bria. It kills me how easily you can lie while looking me straight in my face.”

He clenches my upper arms, and I tilt my head up.

“When did it become so effortless for you, my sweet baby? Can you remember the day I told you I wanted to corrupt your innocence but hoped it would still be there shining in your hazel eyes? What have I done?”

I can’t stand Tatum
from the second she walks into the room. Everything about her puts me on
edge—from her small delicate curves to the smile that she refuses to
lose. 
There’s nothing she
loves more than to piss me off. She’s infused herself in every part of my life,
taking away the silence I crave. I’d walk away if I could. If I hadn’t been
shot. If I didn’t need physical therapy. If I could resist her.
I only kiss her to
shut her up. I didn’t expect it to turn into the hottest moment of my life with
our clothes scattered on the floor. The one-time thing turns into something
neither of us expect.
When my guard drops
and secrets are revealed, I’ll do anything to protect Tate. We have enemies
lurking around every corner.
Will my vow of honor
cost me the one thing I can’t live without?

Excerpt

He closes the distance between us swiftly, grabbing my face roughly between his hands. He kisses me quickly, desperately. It’s a bruising kind of kiss. One that leaves a path of flames in its wake.

He lets me go and steps away. “I had to kiss you before I couldn’t for the rest of the evening,” he admits.

I touch my lips where they still tingle from his.

He flashes a cocky smile, pleased with himself for rendering me speechless.

“I know I’m a good kisser, but I didn’t know it was possible to stun you into silence. I’m impressed with myself.”

I snap out of my revelry. “I hope you go home and write about it in your diary.”

“Oh, I will.” He smirks.

“Is it pink and sparkly?”

“Of course—I even hot glued my name in sequins on it and the first page is marked with Future Mr. Mia Hayes.”

“A
hilarious, crazy romp of a read!!!! I was in stitches through the whole book!
—Imaginary USA Today and Wallstreet #1
Bestselling Rom-Com Author.

There were three things I, Kitty Hoskins, didn’t know when I moved into the
all-girls, non-sorority house Blossom Field Avenue #246:

1) The house opposite ours, #247, is home to the gorgeous jerks of the Iota Fraternity.

2) Lucian Spencer Anderson lives in #247 and is possibly the hottest
stripper-slash-social-science student you’ll ever meet.

3) #246 (The Blossoms) and #247 (The Dudes) have the longest standing, most
ruthless prank war in the history of rivalries. The only thing the two houses
agree on is that they live and breathe for the next battle.

Funny then that the real challenge is the one I never saw coming: an alliance
with Lucian Spencer Anderson. When a cold winter threatens the stray cats of
Deepsilver, our mutual love for animals forces us to team up. Bad, right? Well,
it gets worse: we’re going to need the cooperation of our two houses to pull
this thing off.

Excerpt
Lucian’s
tongue works languidly, seductively over mine. He hisses in a long, quiet
breath through his nose, savoring this intense make-out session as much as I
do. It’s been weeks since I last was with him, and it was driving me crazy. I
see him every day, dammit. He’s even been by my school, “accidentally” bumping
into me after a class. The guy is literally stalking me, and it’s fricking hard
to stay strong.
Now, he
presses me against the side wall of my house. You know that slow push and
release, push and release while never really letting go of your body? His is
always there, gliding over mine like we should be naked, and he’s got me on
fire.
With some
guys, you can sleep with them once and be like, “been there, done that,” right?
Well, that’s not how it is with Lucian. For me, kissing him like this, I just
burn hotter for every second, and it makes me remember how it felt to have him
inside of me, climbing, climbing, climbing until I lost control over my limbs.
Yesterday
afternoon at the mall, he stopped me before I could hop into Seraphina’s car
and leave.
“What’s up,
Kitty? Are you avoiding me or something?” he’d asked.
“Or
something,” I said, sending him a brief side-glance. Mostly, my disgust for him
overpowers the desire, and as long as I don’t look right at him, it’s easy.
See, disheveled locks of amber-colored hair combined with sea-foam eyes has
that effect on me. It’s a fact I knew nothing about until I moved to
Deepsilver.
“Just
because I don’t beg at the foot of your bed doesn’t mean I’m avoiding you. Most
chicks don’t, you know—or wait, are you used to a flock down there?”
He didn’t
even answer. My face flushed brightly as I got into my bestie’s car and slammed
the door behind me. Lucian just stood there and watched us take off. Wham fast-forward a day and some hours,
and here we are in my current situation, pressed against the wall in my yard.
Okay, I
admit it; this might have something to do with how I voluntarily accepted a
glass of hyper-spiked pink punch at the house. Maybe one turned into four,
can’t remember.
I might accidentally
say stupid stuff if I’m tired even if I’m not drunk, but I won’t act this
recklessly. Unfortunately, the guy’s doing something to me, to the point of
making me dream stuff at night, stuff that makes me wake up sighing, so I guess
that’s why I got drunk with the girls tonight.
Or no—it’s
just a Friday night, I’m in college, I’m only young once and so forth, and here
we are. God, he’s delicious.
“Let’s go
inside,” he hisses out against my mouth. His hands have slid inside my top. My
bra is a joke already—halfway pushed up—and he has one of my boobs in his hand.
I’m arching my back like a total sorority slut, moaning exactly like I did when
I woke up from a wet dream about him this morning. Also: this has got to stop.
“No…” I
trail off, because really, I need to taste him some more. The feel of his cock,
hard against my stomach, the head of it rubbing against my hip, makes my
stomach drop with lust. I can’t even talk anymore.
I need to
be clear, tell him I’m not doing the walk of shame into 246 with all the
Blossom Girls at home.
“Okay,” he
murmurs. Starts to push my shorts down, right here, against the wall of the
side of my house!
“What are
you doing?” I’m losing my breath completely while he pushes himself against me.
This is so freaking hot and wrong and slutty—I don’t even know what it isn’t.
He has a blond halo in the moonlight.
“What I’m
doing? I’m making love to you.”
“Here? Are
you crazy?”
His fingers
are in me, and my hips move, wanting this so damn much. I’m slippery already,
enjoying every second like I’ve got no brains left at all.
“You said
not inside the house, didn’t you?”
“Yeah—No—I
meant…” Right. What I’d meant was that we should sneak inside his house, not
mine. I think? “Fuck.”
“Is it
good?” He puffs against my lips.
“Shut… up.”
My fingers grab his pants, unbutton them, and he helps me get them down his
thighs.
“This is
ridiculous,” I say. “Do you have a condom?”
“Fuck
yeah.”
We both
moan when he stabs inside of me seconds later, lifting me against the wall with
his body. My shorts are on the ground, and my thighs vise-grip his hips.
“You’re so
amazing. Shit, Kitty, I—”
“Oh, God!”
I instantly shake around him like I’m some sort of wind-up toy. I’m the goddamn
Energizer rabbit. Lucian pushes harder, rocks into me, chasing the aftershocks
of my orgasm out of me as he groans, coming loudly too.
This is the
wildest— I mean, what the hell was that, a five-second quickie or what? I can’t
even.
“Hello? Is
anyone there?”
Oh, no.
That’s Tilda on the front porch.
“Dudes, you
can come out. I know you’re there. Seraphina? Ninni! There’s someone out here.
I swear to God, if you’re trying to prank us right now, we’re going to have
your heads on stakes!”
