Tessa 

I’m 21. One-night stands are supposed to be normal at this age right? Go to a bar, pick a hot guy, have a little fun and then you run. Or at least that’s what I thought, until my first and only one-night stand ended up being the night I got knocked up by a stranger I had never laid eyes on before. Sure, he was the perfect guy for the job. He was sexy in the way that attracted every female within 100 yards of him. His voice was smooth, and he knew exactly what to say to get into my panties, clearly. Eye roll. 

I wasn’t on birth control. Now I’ve peed on two sticks and they both say the same thing. Those two little lines have changed my future forever. You want to know what the worst part is? I have no idea what the name of the father is. 

Kyle 

I’m a bachelor. I never sleep with the same woman twice, I like variety. But when she walks into the bar, she takes my attention immediately. When she agrees to leave with me, I've hit the jackpot. Then I run into her in my sister's office, the last place I expected to see her. I never thought I'd see her again. 

Except this time, she has something to tell me. Something that will change my world forever. Our one night together, turned out to be so much more.

Release Blitz - Impossible Odds by Jill Ramsower




Title: Impossible Odds
Series: The Five Families #4
Author: Jill Ramsower
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: October 21, 2020


BLURB

He was a vision of power and privilege. 
Ruthless arrogance personified. 
A total stranger and an irresistible challenge. 

I approached him in a busy casino and felt the sting of his brutal rejection. 
Then I did something incredibly brazen. Impulsive. Reckless. 

I stole from him. 

The object was inconsequential, only worth a handful of dollars. 
I didn’t do it for the money; it was about making a statement. 

I went back home thousands of miles away without giving him a second thought until I spotted those quicksilver eyes glaring at me across a busy nightclub. 

It was too impossible to be a coincidence. 
Yet, there he was, seething with a violent promise of retribution. 

He thought he’d intimidate me. 
Hunt me down and make me pay. 
What he didn’t realize was I don’t scare easily. 

My name is Giada Genovese, and I’m a goddamn mafia princess.

EXCERPT

Once the trap was set, I found a place to wait where I could keep an eye on Giada. When she made her way to the restroom a half hour later, I followed her and stationed myself beside the door. My fingers twitched with the need to touch her. The second she exited the restroom, I wrapped my hand over her mouth and shoved her into the storage room. 
She was momentarily too shocked to struggle, fumbling to stay upright and gasping against the palm of my hand. My veins surged with adrenaline. I’d been waiting for this moment for two weeks, tracking Giada down and biding my time for the right moment to strike. Now, I had her in my arms and at my mercy. 
The rush of power was intoxicating. 
Exhilarating. 
Addicting. 
The storage room light was set to a motion detector, so harsh fluorescent light flooded the space when the door flung open, making it hard to see since my eyes had adjusted to the dim lighting of the club. The far wall was lined with shelves containing supplies, and mops in buckets along with brooms and vacuums filled the center of the cramped room. That was fine with me. All I needed was a small space away from prying eyes. 
As soon as we were inside the room, I slammed the door shut and spun Giada around. Pressing her back against the wall beside the door, I instantly replaced my hand over her mouth. The club was loud, but she could easily be heard by people in the hallway if she screamed. 
The second our eyes met, shock and fear melted into recognition and … indignation? Her wide eyes narrowed to harsh slits of emerald rage, and she ceased struggling, her back stiffening and muscles tensing. 
Who was this fucking audacious woman? 
She had stolen from me, yet she had the gall to glare at me as if I were in the wrong. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to knock her down from her high horse or worship at her majestic feet. Just like before, she stirred an inferno of conflicting emotions inside me. 
I held her gaze, steady and unyielding. She was brave, I would give her that, but too much courage could be foolhardy. Sometimes it was good to know when to yield. The more she stood against me, the more my primal side wanted to conquer her. 
“Somebody’s been a very naughty girl.”

Release Blitz - Happily Letter After by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward




Title: Happily Letter After
Authors: Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
Publisher: Montlake
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 20, 2020


BLURB

From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes a love story about taking chances and the surprises that come with them. 

My love story all started with a letter. 

Only it wasn’t from the man I’d eventually fall in love with. It was from his daughter. A sweet little girl named Birdie Maxwell who’d written to the magazine that I worked for. 

You see, once a year my employer fulfilled a few wishes for readers. Only that column didn’t start up again for months. 

So I fulfilled some of her wishes myself. It was harmless…so I thought. Until one day I took things too far. 

While anonymously granting yet another of Birdie’s wishes, I got a look at her father. Her devastatingly handsome, single dad father. 

I should have stopped playing fairy godmother then. I should have left well enough alone. But I just couldn’t help myself. I had a connection to this girl. One that had me acting irrationally. 

Like when I showed up on their doorstep.

Just when I was destined to start a new life, a new beginning, with Korin.
Beautiful
Sweet
Endearingly awkward Korin.
Nathan, my loathsome ex-boyfriend, just stomped all over my happily ever after.

Exes are exes for a reason, they say. They belong in the past. Yeah… Try telling that to Nathan Hanway. He has quite literally put me in a place I’d rather not be.
A high-security facility with as many dark, nebulous secrets as hallways. Surrounded by people with shifty eyes. I’m forced to endure the impossible, under his supervision.
Thing is, I don’t have time. I’m sort of running against a biological clock. I need to get out of here before the colossal sacrifice I’ve made goes to complete and utter waste.

I despise you, Nathan, I really do.

TRAILER



EXCERPT

Prologue 

Script 24923.135: 
“You wake up like it’s any other day of the week. You get ready for work. You scarf down a handful of berries, nuts, and lemon water. Pancakes or anything remotely processed hasn’t been an option all year. You’d get sick from even a lick of syrup. The doctors are confounded, haven’t been able to come up with a diagnosis yet. Oh well, at least you get to stay in shape. 
Like always, you log in at work, the OSA, on time. Such a good girl. You start your task with your colleagues, well, friends. Laura, a fireball of fun, yet also the amazing friend that would break into your house to save your sick ass and take you to the hospital just because you ate one cheese puff. The other friend being Abiola, the sweet pragmatic one who keeps you grounded. 
You’re sleepy. You head to the sleep pods to take a mid-day nap. A handsome face slips in through the darkness behind your eyelids. 
Korin. 
An abduction… You brush it off as an abnormal dream and head back to work. You don’t know this at the time, but he’s a catalyst. Another one. He changes your life forever. 
Every day, the life you have built for yourself drifts further away, a reality that becomes meaningless in exchange for a love that feeds into your new reality. A love that rips apart your loneliness. 
You’re dealt a new card. 
A surprise baby. No, not his, but one of his doing. Make a choice. 
A, die to give life; or B, be reborn to give birth. Or C, abort.” 
“Okay. You’ve decided to be transformed into an alien… right. 
You unofficially marry the handsome Korin, and he plans to take you to your new home planet Miez, where he’ll make a pretty little home for you. A garden, with exotic flowers. A quaint art studio with windows that overlook a waterfall… 
You’re dealt a new card. 
You’re right at the doorstep of your new life, a bright interstellar portal a million miles away from Earth. You watch as hovering guards arrest and take Korin away as you are dragged in the opposite direction. A former catalyst. A former lover cuts your happily ever after short, before it has even started. In the upcoming days, you’re due to wake up in a cell on Earth. In a new body, with potential powers that would make the toughest human shudder. But you’re trapped. 
Make a choice. 
A, opt in; or B, opt out. 
Note: no matter the choice you make, remember this… We all think we’re free.” 
…A 

Chapter One 

Just magical. 
I exhaled, thoughtfully trying to relax my muscles as the stinging sensation of each needle greeted my skin. Though I had my eyes shut, I tilted my head ever so slightly and blinked. I refused to let the tears gathering at the corners of my eyes fall. 
“Clench your right fist,” a nurse disrupted my seething. 
I did what she instructed without much thought. I couldn’t give a crap about what was happening around me. All I could think of was hate, in its purest form. Up until this point, I had conceptualized it, bottled it up and shelved it in the corner of my mind. I had no idea how heavy it would feel coursing through my blood.
