He arrives all dressed in black. Diamond cufflinks. A watch on his tanned wrist that cost more than we would ever see in a lifetime of work. He carries a single red rose for my mother.

Months later, Tiernan Morelli lays red roses on my mother’s grave. That same day, he tells me that he is my new guardian.

I should have known from the very start that he had more in common with the thorns than the rose. Now I know the truth: I’m a pawn in his dangerous game of revenge. I was too young and naive. Now it's too late to save myself from his clutches.

Now I belong to him.

Ash
She’s the unattainable, untouchable. The one I’ve both loved and lusted after from the sidelines.
For years, I’ve kept myself distracted with work, turning my family’s company into an empire.
And, more importantly, I’ve kept my distance. It’s best for everyone.
But when she walks into my club and tries to cheat me out of money, all bets are off.
One way or another, she’s going to pay back what she’s stolen.
Although, it won’t be in the form of cash.

Breanna
I love winning, even if I have to cheat to get to the finish line.
I knew better than to come to this club to play.
I knew he’d more than likely find out I was here.
What I didn’t expect was to see him up-close. I’ve hardly seen him over the last few years.
I wanted him to notice me. To see that I wasn’t a little girl anymore.
And that was my mistake, because he did more than notice.
There is no going back now.
That flame we’ve both been dousing in denial has just been ignited.
Can I really play with fire without getting burned? Or will everything around me turn to ash?

EXCERPT

“Gentlemen, are we going to play poker? Or just stand here all night, admiring what God and my mumma gave me?” I ask, while motioning my hands up and down my torso.
“Well, I’m sure I can manage to do both, sugar.” Mr. Edgar ogles me, taking the seat next to mine. He’s in his fifties, on wife number six, and very close to gambling away what little remains of his family’s fortune.
I smile sweetly at him. “Well, you can always try, right?”
Ugh, sometimes it’s a wonder how I manage not to throw up while leading these men on, letting them think they have a chance to touch me.
Everyone else takes a seat, and the dealer calls the entering. The small and big blind bets are placed—the minimum set at ten thousand. I try not to laugh. Ten grand? That’s it? I thought we were playing for real money here.
After a few rounds, my pile of chips is growing larger. Ben’s is purposely getting smaller. This is our tactic: He flops and folds, losing his money quickly, while I play for the win. Until he gets a set he knows no one will beat. That’s when I get reckless and go all in, forcing the rest of the table to fold. It works every time. I lose, of course, and Ben acts like it’s his lucky payday.
We’ve been sitting here for an hour. Mr. Edgar has been trying to lay on the flirt the whole time. It’s really starting to grate my nerves, and I can feel my mask of indifference slipping further and further with each touch or comment he makes.
Honestly, I’m mostly pissed he’s ruining the high I usually feel as I rip off these old, greedy assholes. Ben and I don’t play because we need the money, and the money we win we always donate to charity. We’re kind of like the Robin Hoods of Sydney… is my way of thinking anyway. No, we do it for the thrill of not getting caught. Well, I do it for the thrill of not getting caught. Ben’s my ride or die; he’ll follow along with any stupid plan or idea I have, and I’d do the same in turn.
“Maybe I can rub some of your luck onto me,” Old Man Edgar says. I’m momentarily confused by his statement… that is, until I feel his cold, wrinkly fingers crawling their way up my bare thigh.
“You have exactly three seconds to remove your hand,” I warn him with a sweet smile. Ben rises to his feet; he knows that tone way too well.
“Breanna.” His warning is too late.
“Three,” I say at the same time I grab those fingers, twist, and bend until I hear the breaking sound. My wannabe suitor screams out a few colourful, derogatory words at me while he slaps me across the face with his other hand. That is his biggest mistake.
I reach under my dress, retrieving the tiny blade I have strapped to my inner thigh. Flicking the pocket knife open, I don’t waste any time as I slam his hand—the same one that just slapped me—onto the table and stab the sharpened edge right through the middle.
“I did ask you nicely, Mr. Edgar. Gentleman, it’s been a pleasure, but I think I’ll call it a night.” I smile at the stunned faces of the other three players, who are all smart enough to keep their mouths shut. Turning to leave, I stop dead in my tracks.
“Fuck.” That must have been what Ben was trying to warn me about. Fucking Chase, otherwise known as Ash’s best friend. Great, there is no way Ash doesn’t already know I’m here now.

EXCERPT

I cross my arms over my chest, and my stomach flips. Is she going to fess up about lunch with Dean today? Do I want to hear this? I haven’t heard from Dean since last night. He made his intentions clear, but I didn’t.
“Okay, what do you want to talk about?” I ask around the dread settling in my gut.
She takes a deep breath. “I had lunch with Dean today. It was…weird.” And there it is.
“You did?” I ask, as if I didn’t already know. “Why’d you do that?”
Her brows slam together. “We were close a long time ago. I haven’t seen him in years. You already know that. It was just us…catching up.”
I feel anger coursing through my veins. “So you say.” I can feel the muscles working in my jaw.
“Sterling, why would I lie to you? You know my secrets.” She closes the distance to where I’m leaning on the counter. She reaches out to put her hand on my face, but I turn away.
She pulls back like I burned her. “Don’t do that, Sterling.” I didn’t mean to react that way. I’m just so angry and jealous, even a little scared. I don’t want her near Dean. I want her with me. I want him to know that she’s mine.
“Do what, Ivie? I don’t know how I’m supposed to react to you spending time with your ex-boyfriend. If there’s a certain way I need to act about this, please tell me.”
She bites her bottom lip like she does when she gets nervous. “He asked me if I was seeing anyone. I didn’t know how to answer him. What are we doing? Are we a thing? Was the other night a fling?”
I blow out a frustrated breath. “What did you tell him?” She looks at me, wide-eyed. “Nothing. I told him things were complicated. Because that’s how they feel right now. That’s all I said. I didn’t want to assume this was something it might not be without talking to you.”
I lift my cap and run my hand through my hair. “Ivie, what do you want from me? He’s been my best friend for years. None of us are kids in high school anymore, and I thought you knew how I felt. But if it’s complicated, I don’t know what to tell you.”
She backs up. “What are you saying, Sterling?”
“I’m saying I think you know how I feel about you, and if you don’t, you should. I’m saying I can’t tell you how to feel or what to do. You’re the only one who knows what you want and how you feel. But I can tell you this.” I walk right up to her and grab her hand and put it flat on my chest over my heart. “This, my heart, belongs to you. And only you. It has for a long time now.”
She lets a tear fall down her cheek as her fingers splay on my chest, feeling my heartbeat underneath. “And Ivie, I didn’t fight for you before. I stood on the sidelines and let you go. I can’t do that again. I won’t. My heart can’t take it. Having you back here made me realize that. So, whatever you’re going to do or decide, don’t wait too long. I can’t handle not knowing where we stand.” I brush a kiss over her lips and wipe away her silent tears. “I’m getting in the shower. You can stay, or if you need to leave, I understand.” I walk away and leave her in my kitchen speechless.

Audio Release Blitz - Some Call It Temptation by Sarah Peis




Title: Some Call It Temptation
Series: Sweet Dreams #2
Author: Sarah Peis
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Narrator: Ramona Master
Audio Release Date: October 18, 2021


BLURB

There once was a princess who lived in a gilded cage. One day she found a way out of her castle and escaped.

Just kidding.

This is not a fairy tale. Just a story about a girl who changed the course of her life and found more than she could have ever hoped for as a result.

But let me start at the beginning. The part where I got away from my controlling family and had to figure out how to make it on my own. Because turns out the only skill I had was how to match my outfits.

Now I was left with no place to live, a new job I wasn’t qualified for and an unhealthy obsession with Mason Drake.

But the one thing I could never do was give in to the temptation that was Mason. Because I needed my job now more than ever. And he was my boss.

Note from the author: In order not to get kicked out of the good (okay goodish.... fine, sometimes good) girls club, I’d like to point out that this is a steamy romcom and my characters use bad language (sometimes) and like to get it on. There’s no cheating and all my books have a HEA.

Release Boost - Forever Drew by A.K. Steel




Title: Forever Drew
Series: Broken Point #4
Author: A.K. Steel
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 22, 2021


BLURB

I write fairytales, but I certainly don’t live in one.

A long time ago I met my knight in shining armour. The dreamy Drew Walker. Drew showed up in the right place at the right time to free me from my train wreck of a life. I was stripping at a local club, on the run from my ex-boyfriend, a thug for one of Sydney's largest criminal empires.

I fell for him quickly, but the timing wasn't right and tragedy struck, destroying our chances of finding happiness together. We parted ways, and I thought that would be the end.

Five years later, across the busy room of a local bar our eyes lock. He smiles, flashing his cheeky charismatic dimples and it's like no time has passed. Except we're both different now. He has found fame as Australia's sexy bad-boy pro surfer, and I'm just a humble librarian with big dreams of being an author.

Could this be our second chance at happiness together? Or are too many ghosts from the past still haunting us to ever really be able to hold onto the love we have for each other?

Is the past lost to me forever, or could Drew be my happily ever after?

*Content warning: contains elements of violence and sexual abuse.

EXCERPT

He rubs his hands up and down my arms, trying to comfort me. I look up at him. "Why are you helping me?"
"Because you need a hand. I would do the same for anyone if they were as down on their luck as you. It's the way I’ve been brought up, and my parents would kill me if I didn't. It's what us Walkers do." He cups my face, running his thumb over my lip. It sends a thrill right through my body. His touch is electric, energising, and I don't know if it's the adrenaline rush, but I want this man so badly I can taste it.
I bite the inside of my mouth to stop myself from acting on my impulse and just kissing him. He lowers his hands and laces our fingers together. "And I told you earlier, you're someone important to me, I know it already."
"Drew Walker, you might just be the sweetest guy there ever was."
He grins. "What's your real name? I can't introduce you to my parents in the morning as Bambi."
"It's Jenna, Jenna West."
He smiles and pulls me into his chest, and I let him. I need to feel the comfort of another human. After everything I’ve been through, the warmth of his body and the small gesture of a hug and knowing someone in this fucked-up world actually cares enough to go out of their way for me, it means everything.
While we stand in his parents' front yard, his arms wrapped around me, I go over his words in my head. You're someone important to me. Such a strange thing for him to say when we have literally just met, but I can feel it too. He's going to be someone important in my life as well.

AUTHOR BIO


I'm a contemporary romance author my novels feature swoony men, twists and turns and always a happily ever after.

I'm a busy mother of three pre-teens, who lives on the beautiful South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. I have always been a creative soul, with a background in fashion design, interior decoration, and floristry. I currently run a business as a wedding florist and stylist, but have always had a love for reading romance novels, something about how the story can transport you to another world entirely.

So in 2020 I decided to jot down some of my own ideas for romance stories, always with a happily ever after of course, and from that came my debut novel Always Fraser. From that moment I haven't looked back, writing has become a part of me. I have a long list of stories plotted and I look forward to being able to share all my stories with you soon. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I loved writing them, xx
