Series: Without Filter #3
Author: Felicia Blaedel
Genre: Steamy New Adult Romance
Cover Design: Sarah Kil Creative Studio
Release Date: December 9, 2021


BLURB

Disagreeing from the first time they meet, Noah and Niko know exactly how to push each other's buttons while they fight the intense pull between them. But when they are forced to work together, they might realise that their connection runs deeper than frustration and lust.

Niko is driven and ambitious, even when it's misconceived as cold and measured.
Her latest project is her great-grandmother's nature organisation. Niko is determined to see it thrive again and hopefully understand herself and her broken family better in the process. Getting a handle on her inconvenient feelings is a must too.

Noah has made a promise to set things right and honour his eccentric grandfather's hard work. Even when that means taking on an active role in a small nature organisation, while hiding his true identity.
He is busy enough as it is with university, work, and late nights of writing. Still, he can't help but care about the organisation. Or the fierce woman who always seems to make his life harder.

Only Sometimes is a steamy new adult frenemies to lovers romance set in Copenhagen, Denmark (with a getaway to a gorgeous Swedish forest).
It's book three in the Without Filter Series, but it can be read as a complete standalone.

She changed her name. Her look. Her location. But what if running away isn’t enough to save her?

Physical therapist Scarlett Reed is looking for a fresh start when she takes a job in another state. Her rules are simple: don’t get close to anyone, and flee at the first sign of danger.

Wounded soldier Malcolm McCoy plans to work hard in rehab so he can get back to saving the world. He isn’t looking for a relationship, but something about prickly Scarlett intrigues him more than it should.

Or can it? Someone in Scarlett’s past circles closer, waiting for a chance to strike. Mal will do whatever it takes to protect her—but it might not be enough to survive what’s coming…

As soon as they think they’ve weathered the storm, they’ll discover it’s only beginning.

He barked a laugh. “You’re fun, Scar. I really like having you around.”

She flushed with pleasure. “Happy to be of service.”

“You know, when I woke up in that hospital, I didn’t know what they were going to tell me about my leg. I didn’t know the extent of the damage, or if I’d even have a leg. I admit I was feeling kind of lost when the doc told me it was going to take time and I’d be out of work for a while, but meeting you has been the highlight of the whole thing.”

The flush grew warmer. Scarlett balled up her fist and socked him playfully in the arm. “Don’t even try and make me cry. It won’t work.”

He tweaked her nose and she rocked back, surprised but also flustered by his touch.

“I’m not trying. I just want you to know that I like you. Being with you is easy, and I don’t say that to many people. No reply necessary, so don’t wrack your brain trying to think of an appropriate response.”

“Okay, I won’t. But thanks. I’m taking everything you said as a compliment, so don’t ruin it for me with a joke.”

His grin did things to her insides. “Not planning to.”

The woman returned from the back room, smiling stupidly at Mal. “If you go around to the loading dock, they’ll have the couch waiting for you. Is there anything else I can help you with?”

Scarlett rolled her eyes. The other woman didn’t see because she was too busy smiling at Mal. He was smiling back, and Scarlett could see that the brain light had gone off in the woman’s head. She was operating on hormones and desire at this point.

“I’m going to grab a couple of other things. I’ll be back in a few minutes,” she said to Mal. “You can stay here if you want.”

“Nope,” he said. “Going with you.”

They walked away from the counter, and Scarlett threw him a side-eye. “You turn them stupid. It’s amazing.”

“What?”

“That girl. She could be a PhD in nuclear physics and you’d still knock every thought out of her head simply by looking at her.”

Mal laughed. “You’re giving me too much credit. I’d say you’re pretty damned smart, and I don’t turn you stupid, do I?”

“Not possible,” she sniffed. “I’m immune.”

“I’m wounded.”

“I know. It’s how we met.”

He laughed again. “Jesus, Scar. You’re so full of sass. Sometimes I think…”

“Think what?” she asked when he didn’t continue the thought.

“Nothing important. What else are you getting in this place?”

She put her hand on the round end table, thankful it was still there. It’d been marked down, too. Only twenty-five-dollars today. “This, and maybe a couple of pictures. I still want to know what you were thinking, though.”

He sighed as he hefted the table in one arm. It was light or she would have yelled at him for it. He didn’t need to overtax his leg. He’d only been home for a few days, and it was just a month out from his surgery. Plenty of healing left to do.

“No, you really don’t,” he said.

She faced him, stubbornly unwilling to continue. She shouldn’t care what he’d been thinking, but she did. She couldn’t help it. “Maybe I do. I get to be the judge of what I want to know and what I don’t.”

“Yeah, but once you know, you can’t un-know.”

“Mal.”

“All right, Scar. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.” He leaned toward her just enough that his voice was only for her. Her skin tingled at his proximity, her breath feeling heavier in her chest.

Then he said the words. “Sometimes I think I want to kiss you.”

Release Blitz - The Easy Part by Amanda Siegrist




Title: The Easy Part
Series: perfect for you #3
Author: Amanda Siegrist
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 21, 2021


BLURB

The Agreement: Pretend to be her fake fiancé to placate her overbearing, selfish mother.
Timeframe: Five days.

Brick likes things carefree and simple, especially after the falling out with his brother. The moment Jezebelle walks into his bar looking sad and troubled, he’s determined to do anything to turn her frown upside down. Even if that requires posing as her fake fiancĂ© to get her bossy mother off her back. Pretending to love her will be the easy part—because he does. Walking away will be futile. But he doesn’t see a way he can keep Jezebelle for real, not when her mother’s diabolical ways prove she can make his life more than just complicated, but downright impossible.

Jezebelle can’t believe her luck when Brick hatches this crazy plan. One, because she’s always had a secret crush on him, and any reason to get closer to him makes her heart stutter with anticipation. Two, because it might actually work to keep her mother at bay. Of course, her mother isn’t a woman who takes no for an answer. She’ll do everything in her power to get her way. The last thing she wants is for Brick to get hurt. The best thing she can do is walk away and forget he ever held her heart. If only it were that easy.

Warning: This is not a full romcom. While it has moments of humor, it also has a twist of angst. Okay, now you can dive in, you’re prepared!

“Tomorrow we plan on visiting a few art galleries. I’ll pick you up at nine for breakfast.”
Her mother did not say it as a request, which didn’t surprise her. She knew her mother was visiting for the next five days and she’d be required to spend time with her. Two days down, only three to go.
“Brick and I will be ready.”
Her mother pursed her lips, tight and hard. “I’m sure Brick has other things he needs to attend to.”
“Mother, he—”
“Actually, I do,” Brick said, cutting off her rebuttal. She whipped her head sharply in his direction, confusion filtering in. He must’ve sensed her unease because he kissed her on the lips. “But I’ll meet up with you for lunch.”
“That’s not necessary,” her mother replied.
He turned his head with slow precision toward her mother. “But I insist. I look forward to getting to know you better. We will be family soon, after all.”
Jezebelle had to press her lips together to keep from laughing. Not by the thought of Brick joining her family, but how so pleasantly he said the words as if he adored her mother.
“How soon?” her mother asked with a heavy glint in her eye as if daring Brick to keep the lie going. Her mother didn’t know their engagement was fake, but she also knew her mother would do everything in her power to stop it.
How did one stop a fake engagement? Jezebelle almost chuckled out loud again. The idea was so laughable.
“If I could marry your daughter right here, right now, I would.” His eyes sought hers. “Every moment with her is more than I could ask for. She’s beautiful and smart, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her.”
The way he spoke, his eyes sparkling with love—could it be true?—his lips curved in delight, she believed him. That what was between them was real and everything would work out in the end.
If only it were that easy.
If only it were that real.

Release Blitz - You've Got Male by Kat Baxter




Title: You've Got Male
A Men of the C-Suite Series Standalone
Author: Kat Baxter
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy
Release Date: September 22, 2021


BLURB

Ezra

I did not expect to meet my soulmate when I signed up to mentor a young entrepreneur. I did it because I needed the good press. When we communicate online, we're perfect together. Paisley McLeod is witty, whip-smart, and ambitious. Everything I want in a woman. But my soulmate? Hell, I’m not even sure I believe in such a thing. But I definitely want to get to know her better.

There’s always a catch though. We know each other in real life and she hates me. When she finds out who I am, will she admit how perfect we are together, or will she believe every lie she’s ever read about me?

Paisley

I hate Ezra Carlisle. He’s rude and too smart for his own good, and far too handsome for my own good. Anyone that charismatic should come with a warning label. Even worse, the new app he’s about to release is suspiciously close to the app I’ve been developing for years.

I shouldn’t be attracted to him, but I am. And, as if I don’t already have enough on my plate, I’ve got a crush on my online business mentor and he’s been hinting he might want to meet in person. How can I want such different men and what am I going to do about it?

@PsychedelicAlmond: I know you weren’t always as successful as you are now. Well, at least I’m guessing that, unless you were born into your job.
@TheZMan: what are you trying to say?
@PsychedelicAlmond: Okay, brace yourself.
@TheZMan: Consider me braced.
@PsychedelicAlmond: It turns out, I need advice.
@PsychedelicAlmond: You went silent on me. Did the shock kill you?
@TheZMan: Yes. I’m typing this message as a ghost while the medics work to bring me back. Better ask fast. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I think I smell my nana’s apple pie.
@PsychedelicAlmond: Dial down the drama, okay?
@TheZMan: Sure. <clearing throat and straighten glasses> What do you need advice about?
@PsychedelicAlmond: how do you deal with the overwhelm? I feel so scattered and unfocused about my project. I know ultimately what I want it to be, but it seems like the pieces are never going to completely fit together. Like I’m trying to put together a puzzle with pieces from different boxes and I don’t know what exactly I’m doing.
@TheZMan: I feel that way with every project I ever do. It’s part of the process. At least for me, it is. Perhaps it’s the same for you. Every project—at least the ones worth doing—feel too big to accomplish. It’s how you know you’re on the right track. Anyone can do the easy projects. The tough ones—the ones worth doing—need someone as smart and focused as you.
@PsychedelicAlmond: have any advice of how to deal with it so I can get back to being productive?
@TheZMan: Think about why you started the project. What is your WHY? If you don’t know why you’re doing it, then you’ll never have a clear picture of the end result. It’s like walking around in a dark maze, you’re just making turns but you have no idea if you’re getting any close to the end or just walking in circles.
@PsychedelicAlmond: Look at us using all the metaphors today! How very literary of us ...

When I make a promise, I keep it.

It wouldn’t have mattered where she ran, I always would have found her.
There’s something about Ariah that makes me a mad man. It sends me off the deep end and makes me do things I never would have for anyone else.
Like send a PI across the world to find her.
Fuck. She made it hard for him. She knew the recourses I had at my disposal and she hid like her life depended on it...which it did.
Too bad for her I found her. Living her perfect little life with her friends and that idiot boyfriend of hers.
I knew I was going to fucking love tearing everything she loved away from her.
And all she would have left was me.

I had given a lot of thought to the final moment of my life over the years. Morbid, I know, but when you have faced death as many times as I had, it’s natural. I thought I would be scared, that the final breaths I took would hurt, and I thought I would be alone. But instead, as my consciousness drifted, images flashed before my eyes, just as they had when I thought I was about to drown. Braxton filled my mind, the memories of the time we had spent together, his kisses, the memory of the first time he told me he loved me, all the times he promised me the world.
“Ariah!” Braxton’s voice was raspy as it cut through the fog in my mind. “Please stay with me, baby. Please don’t leave me.” A loud sob racked through his chest.
All I wanted was to stay, but no matter how hard I fought, the darkness pulled me under.

USA Today Bestselling Author

Writing has been a desire my whole life. Once I found the courage to write, life changed for me in the most profound way. Bringing stories to readers that I'd enjoy reading and creating characters that are flawed, but lovable is such a joy.

When not writing, I'm with my family doing something fun. My husband, Gene, and I are bikers and enjoy riding to new locations, meeting new people and generally enjoying this fabulous country we live in.

I come from a family of veterans. My grandfather, father, brother, two sons, and one daughter-in-law are all veterans. Needless to say, I am proud to be an American and proud of the service my amazing family has given. In trying to give back, I've started a foundation, Authors4Veterans, with my friend and fellow author, Stacey Joy Netzel. Our charities will rotate but will always support our military and their families.
