Sale Blitz - The Darkness Series by Simone Nicole






Title: Ahead of the Darkness
Series: The Darkness #1
Author: Simone Nicole
Release Date: March 13, 2014


Synopsis

It has been a long, long time since I’ve seen your little face, chérie. Not once did you visit. That really hurt; after all, it was thanks to you I was convicted. That’s not something you forget.

I thought it was time— a visit was due. Seeing as you wouldn’t come to me, I thought it only right I come to you. Sadly, you weren’t home, but your furry feline was more than accommodating . . .

I’ll be seeing you soon, mon chérie. I’ll always find you . . .


For six years, a letter has dictated Amelia’s future. She’s running from a past that refuses to stop, always trying to get one step ahead. Amelia is clever and resilient, and refuses to slip up.

Relying only on herself, she’ll be anything and anyone she needs to survive. But everyone slips up . . . eventually. You can’t always stay ahead of the darkness.

Title: Out of the Darkness
Series: The Darkness #2
Author: Simone Nicole
Release Date: October 18, 2014


Synopsis

She ruined me.

The walls I’d built were for a reason; locking myself in my own personal prison was out of necessity. Now, with the rubble at my feet, I could do nothing but watch as she ripped my soul in two, taking the half she owned with her.


The need to settle down, to find that missing piece, for the all-consuming love, was never Drew’s plan. He’d spent the better part of a decade suppressing all memory of love, of life. He told himself he had the essentials: the impressive apartment, the successful club, the simple, uncomplicated life he’d worked so hard to create. It was all he needed. Until Mia.

She entered his life like wildfire, burning through his world and destroying all pretence of simplicity, evoking everything he’d fought to deny.

Longing. Warmth. Love.

She made him want it all, but Amelia lived in the darkness. It had always been her constant yet terrifying companion. A shadow she'd never been able to out run and one fateful night it finally consumed her, shattering both their worlds and burying them deeper in the dark.

Drew will stop at nothing to save her, for their happy ever after, but Mia isn’t the only one with demons … It’s a long way out of the darkness.

#1 TEMPORARY BLISS

2014 Best Humor Romance at the Indie Romance Convention

***Disclaimer - There is absolutely no cheating in this book. However, this book does contain descriptive and super hot sex scenes that will make you blush and leave you hot and bothered. Make sure you have you husband, partner, boyfriend or significant other nearby when reading, or else batteries. Lots and lots of batteries***

Makenna Lewis cringes at any mention of the word commitment. She doesn't want or need a relationship, but she does like sex (who doesn't).

That explains Noah, Sean, and Zander, her three 'friends with benefits'.

They know the score, they know they're not the only one, and each of them provide her with a different physical need that she craves and enjoys.

Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.

Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she's willing to give, she falters.

What do you do when something that you've known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?

If you're Mac, you run and hide.

But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?





#2 TRUE BLISS

Kate & Zander's Story (& the continuation of Mac and Daniel)

*Disclaimer: This book contains a hot as hell stripper with a penchant for public sex and exhibitionism who may or may not succeed in bringing out the inner firecracker in all of us. Oh, and don't forget the batteries.*

She watched her best friend find her superhero. 

Now she wants her turn.

Despite a run of bad dates with Mr. Wrong, Mr. Boring, Mr. Bad Breath, Mr. Grabby Hands, and even Mr. Say I Love You After One Date To Get Into Your Pants, Kate McGuinness is more determined than ever to find the one.

Having tried everything else, she turns to the internet in a last ditch attempt to find her elusive prince.

But Kate doesn't want an everyday, run of the mill love.

She wants the kind of love that makes your heart skip a beat. The kind of love that makes you dance in the rain and bottle up the sunset. The once in a lifetime kind of love that authors write about, musicians sing about, and lovers dream about.

Could a certain police officer in training, who has come to her rescue in the past, be the one to swoop in and save her heart?

What if the love Kate desperately seeks has been in front of her the whole time?

She just needs to open her eyes to see it...




#3.5 PERMANENT BLISS

The wedding nobody ever thought would happen!

***Disclaimer - Hot sex, drunken texts, horny phone calls, and a wedding anticipated by all but one. And, of course, a few freak outs along the way (but NOT the kind you're used to) because that's how Mac rolls ***
 
This is a companion novella for Makenna & Daniel. You met them first in Temporary Bliss, then watched the other parts of their story come to 'life' in True Bliss (see what I did there!) Now join them as they seal the deal in Permanent Bliss.

Makenna Lewis never thought she would be the one walking down the aisle to marry her superhero. But then again, she hadn't expected Daniel Winters to crash into her life and tilt her world off its axis two years earlier. As they celebrate their last days of singledom, they find themselves battling over the guest list, managing the in-laws, and dealing with last minute disasters that threaten to disrupt their special day.

In true Bliss fashion, we'll see freak-outs, awkward situations, hilarity, drama, and cringe-worthy moments as Mac and Daniel prepare for one of the most important days of their lives. Join the Bliss gang as they watch two of their own walk down the aisle and conclude their happily ever after.

This companion novella follows on from the end of True Bliss and will lead into Finding Bliss - Noah 'Walking Dildo' Taylor's story.
 





 Also Available


#3 BLISSFUL SURRENDER


**Disclaimer – If you thought the first two Bliss books were hot, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Creative use of handcuffs, batons, a club scene you have to read to believe, and a tough as nails dominant who is blindsided when the one woman strong enough to disarm him threatens his resolve not to let his past dictate his future.**

This is a story of Sean Miller, a dom that will have your panties diving for cover with an eyebrow quirk. That will have even the strongest woman dropping to their knees in submission with a piercing stare, and Samantha Richards, a female cop who’s tough, seemingly impenetrable shell is strong enough to resist everyone except the one man it was build up to protect her against.

Blog Tour - Sugar's Twice as Sweet by Marina Adair




Image Map
Title: Sugar's Twice as Sweet
Series: Sugar, Georgia #1
Author: Marina Adair
Release Date: November 25, 2014



He's trouble she doesn't need . . .

Thanks to a cheating fiancé, Josephina Harrington's perfect life just crashed and burned. Moving in with her overbearing parents is definitely not an option. No, she needs to prove she can make it on her own. And she will-by turning her great-aunt's old plantation house into a destination getaway. She's just not expecting her contractor to be so hands-on-and so totally irresistible.

. . . but everything she wants

Bad-boy golf champion Brett McGraw figured his hometown of Sugar, Georgia was the perfect place to lay low and get his life back up to par. The leggy blonde with a pint-sized pup is the kind of sweet 'n sassy trouble he never saw coming. She doesn't know a nut from a bolt and before long, he's renovating her house . . . as she steals his heart. Can he convince Josephina that his womanizing ways are in the past and he's ready for forever?






AMAZON US / UK




Sugar’s Twice as Sweet is a charming, enjoyable, romantic read with a bit of sexy thrown in.  There was quite a bit of humor too.  

“Sweet mother of God. Her mouth went dry. Which was the exact opposite of what was going on in her panties.”

We meet Josephina, aka Joie, a Yankee girl who found out her fiancée was cheating on her for a year. With no options she flees to the small southern town of Sugar, where she used to spend summers as a child with her Aunt Letty. Her aunt had left her the Fairfield House and she was determined to turn it into an inn. We also meet Brett, the PGA playboy who is also a swoon worthy, cowboy hat wearing, true southern gentleman. The two had history from long ago and the chemistry between them is undeniable.  

“Aw, sugar,” Brett groaned, his head falling back. “You keep that up and it will be over in three seconds, and I want to do this right. In a bed. Taking my time. Loving you all night.

Of course a small southern town lives for gossip and feuds. Joie had her hands full with the “bible group” of her aunt’s best friends. And falling for their hometown hero didn’t help her any. Change is hard for anybody of any age and together the town learned how to change for the better.

This was a story of second chances, believing in yourself, and living life balls to the wall. It was sweet, sexy, and very entertaining!!

Series: 'Til Death #1
Author: Bella Jewel
 Release Date: November 25, 2014


Synopsis


They say there's a fine line between love and hate.

There is.

I married a douchebag.

I didn't know it at the time.

He came in like a handsome stranger and blew me off my feet.

I fell madly in love, like the naive girl I am.

Then he left me high and dry.

Turns out, I was nothing more than a business plan for billionaire playboy, Marcus Tandem.

He needed to be married in order to obtain his grandfathers business, and I was the poor victim in his path.

I believed in what we had, until the truth reared its ugly head.

I never meant anything to Marcus. Not a damned thing.

With my world spinning on its axis, the girl I once was has long since died.

Instead he left me as this empty, emotionless shell.

I may have made a vow before God to love and cherish him ‘Til Death do we part, but it’s time for me to give back to Marcus, exactly what he gave me.

He has to pay.

And pay he will.

Review


I expected to be wowed by this author. I expected raw emotion and nothing short of perfection. After all, she is the young lady who popped my biker cherry and I haven't been the same since.

What I didn't expect, was to be sucked in to this book before I even made it to chapter one.

The prologue is so powerful and deep you can't help but lock yourself in a quiet room and read aloud, pausing after every sentence, reeling after each paragraph.

I fell in love with the devil. - I mean what kind of mind trip is that!?

We are introduced to Marcus, (from Katia's point of view) and right from the beginning I knew this was going to be a book I wouldn't soon forget.

Marcus is hard, he's broody, he's not soft and he's not gently but when he's inside me, deep inside me, I feel him. I feel everything he refuses to let me see.
 
They say your body tells you when something becomes dangerous - that it hums with awareness. They would be right. I felt it; I felt the shift, and I knew the moment I entered Marcus's world that he was going to crush it.

Okay, I have given up way more than I planned. I will just say if you have read anything from Bella Jewel you know that she is brilliant.Her story lines are amazing and she knows how to make you ache for more.
 
'Til Death is no exception. Be ready for a mind blowing story line and characters that will make you sad, mad, and very very wet. Yes, I said wet. You know you want to ask.... is the sex hot?

I only have one answer for that.... it's Bella f*cking Jewel for crying out loud. Of course the sex is hot! You will love taking a peek inside the mind of Marcus Tandem, don't say I didn't warn you.

Only one thing really pissed me off...THE END! No f*cking way! When the hell does the next one come out!! (*running my hands down the front of my shirt* I'm okay I'm okay, calm down)

I give Til Death 5 mind blowing stars. Bella Jewel I will be not so anxiously waiting for the next one.

✰✰✰✰✰


You need to One-Click this book immediately, just because Bella Jewel wrote it! Well I guess I should give you a few more reasons. I could go on for days about just how much I love Bella's books. Each one gets better and better. I always think to myself, "How can she top the last one?" And each time I'm pleasantly surprised to find I loved it as much, if not more than the last.

In Til Death, Bella ups the ante. Marcus and Katia are hot as Hell together. The sex scenes alone are worth the price of admission. The underlying story isn't a romance filled with hearts and flowers. There's much more to this complex and dynamic book.

This book is so rich and meaty. One you can really sink your teeth into. Bella excels in showing and not telling. Leaving you wondering where the twists and turns are going to hit you. And boy, when they hit, the hit like a Mack truck.

We get a glimpse of the crew from Joker's Wrath in this book as well. I love how they tied into this story. Ms Jewel does leave us on a major cliffhanger ending, but rest assured, book two will be here shortly.
