/ ARC-Book Review / Release Blitz / Thief / A. Zavarelli /

I’m a good girl.
 
I live by a code
that can’t be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and
pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned.
 
But Nikolai Kozlov
re-writes my destiny with five simple words.
 
You belong to me
now.
 
He’s Russian mafiya.
A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have
been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he
wants without a second thought.
 
And what he wanted
was me.
 
He thinks he
controls my fate, but what he doesn’t know is, sometimes it’s the good girls
you have to watch out for. 
 
 
I’m a dangerous man.
 
I live by a code.
The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To
destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her.
 
She’s a dancer. A
beautiful little doll. My prisoner, and my new favorite puppet. This mafia
princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply
collateral.
 
It’s a shame to
destroy precious things.
 
But this is what bad
men do.

“Gossip Girl meets Percy Jackson in the glitz and grit of L.A….”

In Hollywood’s underworld of demigods, druids, and ancient bonds, one girl has a dangerous future.

Sage is eighteen, down on her luck, and struggling to survive on the streets of Los Angeles. Everything changes the night she’s invited to a party—one that turns out to be a trap.

Thrust into a magical world hidden within the City of Angels, Sage discovers that she’s the daughter of a Celtic goddess, with powers that are only in their infancy. Now that she is of age, she’s asked to pledge her service to one of the five deities, all keen on winning her favor by any means possible. She has to admit that she’s tempted—especially when this new life comes with spells, Hollywood glam, and a bodyguard with secrets of his own. Not to mention a prince whose proposal could boost her rank in the Otherworld.

As loyalties shift, and as the two men vie for her attention, Sage tries to figure out who to trust in a realm she doesn’t understand. One thing’s for sure: the trap she’s in has bigger claws than she thought. And it’s going to take a lot more than magic for this Celtic demigoddess to make it out alive.

Love on a Battlefield by Posy Roberts blitz

Not every compass points north.

Andrew Summers is forced to spend his vacations reliving Civil War battles with his father. He hates every minute, until a blue-eyed, red-haired boy behind enemy lines catches his eye.

Shep Wells would much rather travel the world than play at boring war reenactments. He never dreamed a Texan boy would capture his heart.

Real life and years separate them; Andrew is forced onto real battlefields, but for Shep the world is a playground. They’re opposites, but writing letters closes the distance, uncovering their hopes and dreams. When Shep visits Andrew, they get to see if the tug they’ve felt for years is the compass pointing the way home.

LEXIE

I know what you must think of me.

You’re going to think I’m a whoring trophy wife.

You have to believe me when I tell you, I do love my husband.

I tried to stop it. I tried to resist him.

But there was no resisting Derek Drake.

And if you were me, you wouldn’t have been able to, either.

DEREK

As long as I can remember, the beast has been inside of me.

It’s a monster with dark desires and carnal needs.

When it sees something it wants, it won’t be denied.

Alexandra Hale was a Princess, a spoiled brat who needed to be taught a lesson.

The moment the beast saw her, it claimed her. It was only a matter of time before it got out and took her.

It didn’t help that she so clearly wanted to be taken.

When Manhattan socialite Lexie Hale hires the dark, brooding Derek Drake to remodel her house in the Hamptons, she never imagined the deep, forbidden desires he’d awaken inside of her. There’s just one little problem: Lexie is married. How long can she resist Derek’s promise to dominate her and take her in ways her husband never could? And what will happen when her husband finds out?

Share Me: The Devil Makes Three is a steamy, heart racing erotic romance about the forbidden lust and even more forbidden desires between a married woman and her Alpha male contractor. It includes cheating, consensual, hard BDSM, an MFM scene, and a taboo cuckold relationship. Not for the faint of heart!

First novel in the Share Me Series

/ Shattered Destiny / Yumoyori Wilson & Tamara White / blitz /

What if one act of kindness shatters your destiny? One moment that changed your life forever. Would you embrace it or fight with everything you had?

Born to a powerful mother and father, both highly respected in our clan for their magic and strength, I was neither powerful nor respected. I was born a null. Devoid of any of the strength or power of my clan and to make matters worse, my attempted shift into dragon form revealed I’m nothing more than a mere human.

When my mother became ill and my father abandoned us, I became the head of the household. I didn’t mind doing hard labor; actually, I enjoyed knowing I could be of use to my mother by performing the duties she could no longer do.

My life had become the same routine until I decided to step in and help an injured dragon who crossed my path. After healing them, my clan turned on me, taking me to the King to be interrogated. Now, I’m free and on the run – beginning my journey into the unknown.

I am Abigail Fiammetta. I vow to live and reclaim the shattered pieces of my life. Even if I have to kill to do so.

All.

I don’t recognize myself in the mirror anymore.

My thoughts are filled with hatred and dripping with rage.

I’ve lost my soul.

She took it to the depths of Hell with her and haunts me with images of what could have been.

Sixty lives are mine to take.

Sixty lives stand in the way of my vengeance.

Sixty lives plus one more.

Mine.

When the last drop of blood falls — mine will be spilled.

Only one person stands in the way.

She doesn’t realize I’ll kill her too.

I don’t own a heart.

And even if I did — I wouldn’t fall prey to its lies again.

I am Chase Abandonato.

Heir to a legacy of betrayal.

And I will kill them all.

Even if it means pointing the gun at myself.

A life for a life.

A soul for a soul.

Now I lay me down to sleep… I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

Blood in. No out.

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.
