Emma

I was a willing sacrifice in an arranged marriage.
Until my father made a new deal and gave me to another.
Now I must marry a savage.
A Northerner- the very thing I had been taught to hate.
I vow to never be his. I will never belong to Shay O’Reagan.
I will defy him every step of the way.
He may lay claim to my body, but he will never own my heart.

Shay

In order to secure my place in the Irish Mafia, I agree to an arranged marriage.
A marriage with a willing bride, one groomed to be the wife of a mafia king.
What I get is a redheaded beauty hell bent on my destruction.
Turns out, she was meant to be the perfect mafia wife- just not mine.
That treacherous detail doesn’t stop me from wanting her.
From needing to taste her ruby red lips.
The fire that blazes in her defiant eyes lights a desire inside of me that demands I claim her as my own.
While she wastes my time defying me with every breath, the North rises up demanding retribution for a crime that was buried a long time ago.
The clock is ticking as I battle a war around me and within my own walls. Every minute takes us both closer to certain death.
I’m unsure of who my true allies are and where my enemies are hiding. There’s only one thing I’m certain of.
I will never give up.
I will fight to the end, no matter the cost.
I am a King and I will die on my feet.

EXCERPT

“Calm down,” I say and press her harder against the wall. I know there is no way she doesn’t feel my raging hard-on. Her cheek presses into the wall, her breath moves locks of red curls, but I can’t see her eyes. I reach up and move the hair aside slowly and carefully, not putting it past her to try to bite me.
“You keep calling me a savage, Emma. So this is what a savage would do.”
She’s looking at me from the corner of her eye. She shifts and rubs up against me. “I wouldn’t keep doing that if I was you.” I move my face closer to hers. “Unless you want to.” I want her to want me to.
“I hate you.”
I try to move past the anger I feel that she was Jack’s. Now I want to make her mine.
“Say something nice to me, and I’ll let you go.” I’m trying to take the high road here. I’m not one to fight over any woman, but this time it’s very personal.
She draws in a shaky breath, and her gaze diverts back to the wall. “Fuck you.” Her two words don’t hold the same level of conviction they had earlier, but it’s enough to make me want to push her down the stairs. I think I show a tremendous amount of restraint and drag her away from the wall until she’s facing me. My arms keep her locked in place, and she’s pressed against me so she can’t kick out.
The flickering heartbeat in her neck makes me pause. My gaze trails across her face to her plump lips—her small pink tongue flicks out, and she licks her lips. My cock twitches.
“Final chance.” I can’t look away from her lips.

Every dark wish,
Costs a lie to make reality.

“Punish me.”
Just two words sealed my fate.
Eli took me and made me his.
I didn’t know the submission he’d demand from me.
Or the secrets I kept buried deep inside.
But there was more beyond this dark wish of mine.
More hidden behind those perfect dark lies of his.
Because it wasn’t just my soul that craved redemption.
And when a powerful man becomes obsessed with a woman …
He’ll do whatever it takes to twist her…
Keep her…
And own her.

EXCERPT
(Unedited)

For some reason I can’t stop staring at the handsome man, one I used to call a stranger, now a familiar face that I wish I could stare at all day long. How did it happen so fast? I didn’t even know I was able to fall until he made me. Until he showed me who I truly am.
Not just a monster … but a survivor. Someone who lives and breathes the pain they suffered and carries it with them like a badge of honor. Does he do it too?
With my hands firmly locked around his thick, muscular neck I let him carry me right back into what once was my home. It feels so strange to be back here with the man who took me away from this life. Like two completely different worlds are intertwining into a beautiful mesh.
He puts me down on the floor and goes into the bathroom where he turns on the light and the shower. Then he walks to me again and places his hands on my waist. The second his hands touch my skin I jolt up and down, an unexpected heat wave flashing through my body.
A quirky grin briefly brightens his face. “Take it off.”
My cheeks turn crimson red as I realize what he’s asking.
“You’re soaking wet and shivering,” he says.
And without taking his eyes off mine, he hooks his fingers underneath my top and curls it up over my head, throwing it aside. My arms instinctively cover my breasts, even though he’s already seen them. Before, I didn’t want to hide … but now I do. I don’t want to hide my body … I want to hide myself, my heart … and the scorching hot flames coming off his eyes the minute he sees me undressed.
I didn’t think it could affect me more than it already did, but I was wrong. Especially when his tongue dips out to swiftly wet his top lip.
I gulp when he goes to his knees in front of me and zips down my skirt from the back, sliding his hands inside only to push it down softly along with my underwear. He’s so close to me when he lifts his face and his eyes bore into mine. I’ve forgotten how to breathe.
And when he presses a soft, delectable kiss to my thighs, I die a little.
The kisses don’t stop. And I don’t pull away either as he draws a line from my thighs all the way up to my pussy, deeper, and deeper, until there’s no way back. Until there’s only him and me in this twisted, fucked up nightmare that’s beginning to feel more like a dream after all.
His tongue dips out to lick me, and I grasp the wall behind me, desperate for something to hold onto. Every stroke he adds is another one that makes me want more and more until I’m left gasping for air. His tongue twists and turns around my clit until a moan escapes my mouth.
He pauses and looks up, a gleeful smile on his face, and it’s there and then that I realize I have unequivocally fallen in love with this monster of a man.
“Don’t ever hide from me.” His dominant voice makes goosebumps scatter on my skin.
I can’t say a word, because he dives back in straight away, alternating licks and kisses until I’m delirious with need. My body is shivering, not from the cold but from pure pleasure, and I don’t want it to stop. Screw us being wrong. If everything is so wrong, I don’t want to be right anymore.
“Let me take your pain away,” he whispers against my skin.
Delicious licks follow as he laps me up until I’m quivering in place.
“Please …” The word spills out of me just like that. I didn’t mean to beg … but he makes me. His twisted tongue makes me want to sin. “Don’t stop.”
Even when my hand grasps at his hair, he doesn’t stop. And as his tongue circles around and dips inside me, I fall apart right there and then. My wetness gushes over him, and he keeps on licking me through the waves of pleasure until they subside.
“You look gorgeous when you come undone.” He licks his lips as though he’s just had a dessert.
Suddenly, he whisks me up into his arms again and plops me down underneath the shower. Despite still being fully clothed, he turns it on, the hot stream of water landing right on his already wet chest. And my eyes can’t help gawk at the thick ridges of his abs clearly visible through his white tee. He steps closer. Water rushes down, droplets hanging on his lips just like I am.
And within seconds, he’s smashed them onto mine.

Release Blitz - The Boy on the Bridge by Sam Mariano




Title: The Boy on the Bridge
Author: Sam Mariano
Genre: Bully Romance
Release Date: March 4, 2021


BLURB

The day I met Hunter Maxwell he wasn’t the rich kid who lived in the giant house, he wasn’t the most popular guy in school, he certainly wasn’t the bully who had chased his own best friend out of town after a falling out—he was just a boy with a black eye and a dark secret.
My life would have been much easier if I had stayed out of it, but I couldn’t. I saw someone hurting and wanted to help. I saw someone possibly in danger and wanted to make sure he was safe.
There’s nothing safe about Hunter Maxwell, though. I thought there might be. I fell under his spell. Whatever the world saw when they looked at him, it wasn’t what he showed me.
The bond we formed was real. I know it was real. But with Hunter, when the tides turn, you’d better hope you’re safely on the shore and out of his reach.
I thought I was a strong enough swimmer to keep my head above water. I thought if it came down to it, I could resist his pull.
I didn’t know, but now I do.
Once Hunter sets his sights on you, there’s no such thing as out of his reach. Whether it’s today, tomorrow, or five years from now, he’s coming for me—and when he does, he won’t stop until he’s destroyed me.

EXCERPT

“You sure you want to bail? Leave me here alone in a dark theater with Valerie? Maybe you should tag along and make sure I behave myself.”
I know he’s only ragging on me, but I scoff at him anyway. “Please. I’d never babysit a guy. My mom taught me better than that. If you like Valerie, there’s no way you like me. If you don’t like me, then—”
He stands just as abruptly as I did, moving so close he’s practically on top of me.
My words halt and my amusement fades. His handsome face is so close to mine, my heart sinks. I can’t think straight when he stands so close to me.
“Then what?” he challenges, looking down at me and holding my gaze.
Stampeding wild animals stomp through my chest as I look back at him. I can see from the glimmer in his eyes, he knows exactly how he’s affecting me.
“Don’t torture me, Hunter.”
“This isn’t what it feels like to be tortured by me, Catnip.”

Release Blitz - Mourning Wood by Heather M. Orgeron




Title: Mourning Wood
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 4, 2021


BLURB

She’s hard up.
He’s just hard…

After an ill-fated one-night stand, Wyatt Landry was the last person I ever expected to see again.

By design, mind you, as I spent the last two years avoiding him.

He was only ever meant to be a good time—a really good time—and now, thanks to one teensy little mistake, he’s back in my life and wielding an entirely different set of tools.

It’s not like I intentionally hired a bogus contractor to redo our chapel, and Lord knows I never imagined Wyatt would ride up in his pickup truck, like a knight in thigh-hugging blue jeans, to save the day.

But here he is, and to make matters worse, he’s every bit as charming as I remember, and before I can fully process his reappearance in my life, he has my six-year-old daughter wrapped around his finger, my parents eating out of the palm of his hand, and my best friend shipping us like we’re some celebrity couple.

Thankfully, working in the death industry, I’ve mastered the skill of compartmentalization. Keeping my growing feelings tucked away should be a piece of cake. Except, seeing him every day definitely throws a wrench in that plan.

Before I know it, we’re trading favors for dates, and as much I don’t want to admit it, the feelings for him I thought were dead and buried are taking root and growing into something that looks a lot like love.

Daigle Family Funeral Services… don’t be caught dead any place else.

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 4, 2021


BLURB

A cute and curvaceous executive assistant.

A sexy and smart tech entrepreneur and billionaire.

What happens when their paths cross at the masquerade ball? Will she tell him who she really is?

Ella

I’ve dreamt of being swept off my feet by a handsome prince and getting my Happily Ever After, just like in the romance novels I read. But I’ve never had a boyfriend or even been kissed. To be honest, I don’t think guys even notice I’m there. So, when I had a chance to be a mysterious woman at the ball and finally get my prince to notice me, I went for it. And notice me he did. But will he still want me after he finds out who I am?

Marius

When I found out my (ex-)girlfriend was sleeping with my best friend, I decided to focus all my attention on my billion-dollar business rather than try to find a woman to settle down with. But at the San Francisco Storm Masquerade Ball Fundraiser, I saw her. The perfect woman I’d been waiting for. When the clock struck midnight, I still didn’t know her name or even what her face looked like, but I remembered the sexy curves of her body. And I wasn’t letting her get away. I needed to know who she was. She would be mine.

UNMASKED is a steamy and sexy multicultural retelling of Cinderella, the original ‘One Who Got Away.’

EXCERPT

My eyes widened. He wants me to go into the office when the door is closed? My imagination went wild as I thought about what would happen behind closed doors.

Marius would lock the door behind me after I entered his office, pushing me up against the wall as he firmly pressed his lips on mine. A passionate kiss that would take my breath away. He would pin my wrists above my head, then kiss down the crook of my neck, down my d├ęcolletage to my chest. Unbuttoning my top would reveal a black lace bra holding up my breasts. His eyes would darken with the intensity of knowing he could claim me and possess me however he wanted to. I’d always complained about doing his tasks and errands, but this would be an exception. I wouldn’t mind following his orders; waiting patiently for him to give me a task that would fulfill all his desires.

“Ella?” The deep, rich tone of a man’s voice startled me and my racy thoughts.

Dammit! It’s Marius.
