/Cover Reveal / Four Hearts /Belle Brooks/

“The Wolf can break my bones, but he can’t destroy my heart.”

I will never lie down and say die because there are four hearts that beat for me, including my own, and it’s the strongest weapon I have. I will defeat the Wolf. I will take his life. He’d better sleep with one eye open, because I’m coming for him. 

Who is the Wolf? He’s one dead son-of-a-bitch in my eyes. He underestimated me and now he has no clue where I am. I’ve found my place to hide, and it’s only a matter of time until I see my freedom.

“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, burn in hell, Red, because I’ve had enough.” – The Wolf

The game isn’t over yet. For me, it’s just begun.

Excerpt:
My arm trembles as I grip the cool handle of my pistol, keeping a firm grasp to ensure it
doesn’t slip out of my sweaty hand. It usually stands sentry in my left nightstand to scare the
nightmares away. But this isn’t a dream. The room is dark and hides the face of the man whose
intent is to kill me. But I know who he is. A metallic taste fills my mouth; I want to gag. My
blood drips off the blade in his hand in slow, steady beats on the carpet. My arms shake as I lift
the barrel and point it in his direction. He doesn’t move. His heavy breaths alert me to the meager
distance between us.
We’re at a stalemate.
A soft glow from the lamppost just outside my window casts a sliver of light on his face.
His dark, beady eyes that I have grown to know rake over my body like I’m another one of his
many victims. He lifts the edges of his mouth into a smile. My heart plunges into my stomach. I
know what that sinister expression means, and I think back to all the times he had looked at me
like that before. I had been so blind.
Before I react he lunges at me, grabbing onto my waist and twisting me to the ground. I
shriek as my head slams against the bed frame. Black spots flood my vision. I squeeze my hand
only to find it empty. My gun is gone. The sound of the knife clattering on the floor gives me
slight hope. Not much though. He climbs up my body trying to pin my arms to the floor. I thrash
my fists around, desperate to knock him off.
“Get off!” I scream, pulling on his shirt and kicking him off balance. Wrapping his hands
around my arms, my attacker cuts off the circulation of blood. Rug burns flare across my skin as
he drags me across the carpet. He closes his hands around my neck, shutting off my air supply. I
pull at his hands but it’s no use; he has always been stronger than me. My pulse drums a frantic
beat in my ears. The air slowly leaks out from my lungs, killing any hope I may have left. I
search for the gun around the room; it may be my only savior now.
“Why are you doing this?” I struggle to get the words out. He squints his dark eyes. I’m
wondering if there might be a chance that he will stop this madness. I am wrong.
“It’ll be over soon, sweetheart.” His hands again tighten around my neck, blocking the air
from entering my lungs.

“If he’s gross, I’m bailing.”
That’s what I said to my supposed best friend when she asked me to take her place. A blind date, she said. What harm could it do?
He was charming. Beautiful. God’s finest creation. He wined me and dined me. Made me do things I’d never before dreamt of in the bedroom. It was perfect. Dangerous. Arousing.
But she didn’t tell me the full story. She didn’t tell me about the debt she owed.
And now Quinn Cane wants his money’s worth, and he’s going to make me pay whatever way he can.

“A debt needs to be paid.”
The woman who came to meet me didn’t owe me money. I could tell by her innocent eyes. Still, the debt will be paid either way.
She was something to play with and use as I saw fit, but something about Emily Brooks made me want to keep her. So she became my dirty girl.
Pure. Innocent. Mine.
Then she whispered my damned name and invaded my world, changing its reasoning.
She wasn’t meant to break the rules. But she rolled my dice and won.

Shame. Forgiveness. Dark. Erotic. Romance.
This book is intended for mature audiences. 18+ only.

It was his lips.

The way his rough voice whispered my name.

Leaving me confused.
Devastated.
I hope I’ll never see him again…

Even a hard man needs a soft side.

Marko Sendoa isn’t a beach man. He’s not an Auckland man. He’s a hard man. Born Basque, raised in the heart of New Zealand’s Southern Alps, and bred on hard work, discipline, and getting the job done. It’s not easy for a rugby flanker to make it to age 32 at the top of his game, but he’s done it. Next year is the Rugby World Cup, and he’ll do whatever it takes to be on the field in the black jersey when the anthems are sung.

He doesn’t need a kitten.
He doesn’t need a pregnant cousin.
He definitely doesn’t need a too-short, distractingly curvy, totally unimpressed Maori barista and part-time pet portraitist who fills his house and his life with too much color, too much chaos, and too many secrets.

He’s getting them anyway.

/ Book-Review / Love Bites (Darkness & Light Duology #1) / T.L. Clark /

Shakira had never felt at home growing up in Surrey, but as soon as she entered the quaint Welsh village she knew she belonged. Maybe it was because of the welcoming villagers. Or perhaps it was the presence of the others whom she sensed nearby; the ones she saw in her dreams, with their strange glowing eyes.

Fate is not always kind. It gives with one hand and takes with the other. There is a reason she didn’t grow up with her own kind.

A rich tale of witchcraft, fae, sorcery, Elinefae and dragons; this is a story for all who dare to believe.

Now available as a paperback as well as ebook

Sex columnist Désirée “Rae” Knight is in a bind—and not the kind she usually likes. Her newest assignment, and possible big break, is an article for her magazine on the sex resort that just opened. The only problem is it’s couples only. Although she writes about having red-hot sex, she’s been single longer than she’d like to admit. Enter her coffee shop crush, who she’s been secretly ogling every morning. Trouble is, he doesn’t know she exists.

When Nate Winslow recognizes the shy, quiet woman at Sufficient Grounds as the author of the sex columns that fuel his fantasies, he’s surprised. And the last thing he expects is an invitation to join her at a sex resort. But his answer is hell yes!

Rae and Nate have enough chemistry in the bedroom to set the sheets ablaze. When Rae insists they limit their relationship to sex only, Nate agrees since he’s burned out on love. But the more they push each other’s boundaries, the more they realize one week won’t be enough.
