Release Blitz for No Reservations





Title: No Reservations
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 10, 2020



Blurb

Is it too late to correct the biggest mistake of my life?

While drowning in a mess of sorrow and grief, I lost the only woman I ever loved. I didn’t realize what I’d done until it was too late. 

Thea still owned my thoughts, my dreams, and my heart. I never expected to see her again, much less have to work with her for almost the entire summer. 
  
I should’ve fought for her years ago, and after how much I hurt her I probably don’t have the right to now. 

But I can’t stop until she’s mine again. 

No Reservations is a continuation of characters from No Vacancy but is a total STANDALONE. If you like second chance love stories that make you cry, overheat, and swoon with a broken but lovable wise-cracking hero, this is the book for you!

*A Second Chance Contemporary Romance with a HEA and NO Cheating*

Ava Keyes found love in her favorite record store at just seventeen years old.
Or rather, it found her—in the form of River Jacobs.

While they may have stumbled upon their beginning in The Vinyl Kitty, they never quite discovered an end. A certain Chicago rooftop had everything to do with that.

The unforgettable nights of their youth were hard to let go of. So, Ava kept them, turning what started as a diary into her very own success story. River wouldn’t relinquish the memories, either. Only he strummed them out, into melodies he hoped she could hear.

When River drifts back into Ava’s life, she’s faced with the music of her first heartbreak—while still recovering from her last.

Ava Keyes lost her first love to California dreams at seventeen years old.
Or rather, she thought she had.

Excerpt

I stop so suddenly that Hailee runs into the back of me and pushes me straight into his chest. I breathe him in before quickly stumbling my drunk ass backward. He smells like he always has— woodsy, spicy, home. I am devastated and elated all at once. Every single ounce of air inside my lungs suddenly evaporates and I’m left breathless, like I’ve seen a ghost. How is he here?

River Jacobs.
My first love.
My first heartbreak. My first everything.
 “Ava.” His voice is low and husky—the same as I remember. The way he says my name brings every single emotion I’ve ever felt for him surging back, making me lightheaded. I allow my eyes to pan up to his, a green emerald forest I have no problem getting lost in.

“River.” His name tastes good on my tongue, sweet and sultry. I gulp it down. “How are you here?” I’m not subtle, and I suppose I have the wine and two vodka shots to thank for that. I hope I don’t look as messy on the outside as I feel on the inside.

When he smiles his crooked, perfect smile, I melt into myself. I know that smile so well and God, I’ve missed it. I’ve tried to convince myself I don’t but, the truth is, I’ve never been able to get him out of my head. He’s always been there, far, but his lasting impact remained relentless. “Don’t look so surprised, Ave.” He chuckles. It’s a deep, throaty laugh and I’m reminded of yet another thing I’ve missed infinitely. “I’m back visiting my sister, trying to sort things out. Long story.” He runs his fingers through his hair and sighs.

Hailee sits down at the table with the three men, and I signal to River that we should go outside. It’s loud as hell in this place. I don’t want to have an awkward I haven’t seen you in five years conversation over Bon Jovi’s screeching. So, when he nods, I reach for his hand and lead him out of the bar. The alcohol swimming inside me gives me the confidence to take the lead, even after all this time. I glance back at Hailee, giving her a look so she knows I’ll be close by if she needs me, and she grins back at me.

Once we’re outside, River says, “I’ve missed you, Ava.” The gaze he’s holding and the honesty in his voice, mixes with my buzz, making everything in this moment blur together. I look at him, really look at him, for the first time in over five years. His emerald eyes glisten in the dark as headlights roll over his face, cars whooshing past us. I want to tell him I’ve missed him, but something stops me. My pride? My new jaded self? “I’m so surprised to see you.” I glance away from his face because it’s too perfect, even after all this time, and I’m suddenly shy in his presence. So much has changed. There’s been so much time and distance and hurt packed into these years, but now he’s too close to me and all I can think about is getting my hands on him and letting them speak the words that I can’t right now. “But you did tell me you’d find me again someday,” I say, remembering it as I smile up at him.

“Yeah, and you stopped taking my calls. That hurt.” He looks away from me for a moment and then turns back toward me. “I mean, I understand why. I really do. It was hard, though. I get that it was my choice to leave but that didn’t mean I wanted to lose you. I just—”

“Let me make it up to you tonight,” I interrupt him. With us, it was never just about the sex, but it had been a beautiful bonus. I’d be lying to myself if I said I hadn’t thought about it multiple times over the years. Seeing him now makes me feel like I’m seventeen again, and the rush is more intoxicating than alcohol could ever be.

“Do you want to get out of here?” he asks, as we stand on the sidewalk outside the bar. My eyes widen at his question and he quickly says, “That wasn’t supposed to sound like a lame attempt to take you home with me.” An uncomfortable laugh escapes his lips. I boldly reach out to cup his face in my hands, bringing my mouth to his to allow my actions to do what words can’t, losing myself in the moment as I taste the nostalgia on his lips.

Tonight, I don’t care about consequences.
I don’t think about the mess this might make for us in the morning.
Tonight, I want him in his entirety. “Who says I want you to take me home, River Jacobs?”

New Release! Dark Tide by Gwyn McNamee





Title: Dark Tide
Series: Inland Seas #5
Author: Gwyn McNamee
Genre: Modern Pirate Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 9, 2020



Blurb

RION
There is no black and white in this life.
The line between right and wrong blurs.
I’m constantly crossing it.
Saving a life is just as easy as taking one.
And I’m damn good at both.
Finding a woman who can survive in this world was never on the radar.
But Gabriella pulls me from the bottom of a bottle and touches me in a way no one else can.
Too bad secrets and lies have a way of catching up with everyone.

GABRIELLA
How did I end up here, slinging drinks at a dive bar in the middle of nowhere?
The choices that brought me to this were never even a glimmer of possibility only a few years ago.
How things can change so fast…
And now, my path puts me on a collision course with Orion Gates.
His bigger-than-life size and personality should be a warning.
The profession he’s chosen should be the ultimate final straw.
But instead, I find myself unable to resist his pull.
A decision that could lead to the end of all of us.

Rion and Gabriella.
Lust and lies.
Betrayal and ruin.
This tide may drown everyone…

Excerpt

When I reach Rion, I lean forward and rest my elbows on the bar. “What can I get for you, stranger? Your usual?”

I've never seen him drink anything other than IPA, though he sometimes varies his brand.

His lips curl slightly. “I've had another shitty day. I can use something stronger tonight. I'll take the Jack Daniels Single Barrel-Barrel Strength.”

“Damn. 130 proof. You’re not playing around tonight.”

He shakes his head and runs one of his big hands back through his already unruly hair. “I told you…shit day.”

I bite my lip. “Well, if the drink doesn't help, I can think of something else that might improve your mood.”

And mine…

That's about as direct as I can possibly be, and his pupils dilate while he holds my gaze. Heat crackles between us, and I fight the urge to look away from the intensity of the connection.

He leans forward across the bar, resting his elbows and mimicking my position. “Are you propositioning me?”

I can't fight the smile that spreads across my face. “Proposition has such a dirty connotation.”

A smirk plays at his mouth. “Only if you make it dirty.”

“I'm just making an observation.”

He shrugs, and his eyes dip to my mouth. “An observation, huh?”

I nod slowly.

“Well,” he leans even closer, “then I'm going to make an observation of my own.”

“Yeah, what's that?”

“You have absolutely beautiful lips. I haven't been able to stop picturing them wrapped around my cock since the first night I met you.”

Sweet mother of God.

Warmth spreads between my legs, and I shift to rub them together against the dull ache forming. “Well, now. Who is propositioning who?”

Release Blitz for the Assassin's Game book #4 in the series




Title: Assassin's Game
Series: Assassins #4
Author: Ella Sheridan
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 30, 2020



Blurb

I’m the genius behind the keyboard, the man at my brothers’ backs when trouble comes calling. Killing might not have been my nature, but I learned to do what I had to, to survive. To keep them alive.

Now, with everything going right, with my family finally happy, a new threat has risen. A shadow. A menace that could take it all away in a single breath.

And not just from my family. From hers.

Nix. 

One glance and I knew I’d walk through fire to make her see me, make her mine. Too bad she’s not willing to see inside of me.

In a world where might makes right, we’re on different sides of the spectrum, but in this game of cat-and-mouse, it will take both of us to make it out alive.

Excerpt

The silence between us built as I waited for him to speak, and a warm flush crept up my neck and onto my cheeks. Finally I risked a sideways glance.
Eli was staring—at me.
“What?” I gathered my bowl and plate, silverware, but couldn’t step away without looking at him again. “Eli?”
He shook his head. “I was just…” Another shrug showcased the thick muscles beneath his thin T-shirt. “I was trying to figure out what it is about you.”
The thump of my heartbeat got harder against my ribs. “What is what about me?”
He turned, planting a hip against the counter as he continued to stare. “Every time I look at you, it’s like a magnet,” he said, “pulling me back time and again. I noticed it at the restaurant. Couldn’t stop thinking about it. About you. And now…”
Every cell in my body screamed at me to run, hide, get away—and yet… “Now…what?”
“Now I know about you—a little of what you’ve been through, what you do, how you love your team.”
“They’re my family.” The amber glow of his gaze had me dropping mine.
Why was I looking at the floor? I wasn’t shy. I didn’t lack strength or confidence—maybe had a little too much sometimes, actually. And yet that look… God. It was his intensity, the way his gaze crawled inside me and uncovered things I didn’t want to think about, didn’t want to feel. Especially right now.
I couldn’t bear it; Eli Agozi was too much. Too big a threat—to me, personally, my emotions, my thoughts. He pulled me down paths I couldn’t afford to follow. Mere hours in his presence and I knew.
He was the biggest risk I couldn’t afford to take.
“I don’t think it’s only that they became your family, though it’s partly that. It’s also just who you are, Beautiful.” Eli leaned close until his nose barely brushed mine. Too close. “You fascinate me, Mikaela. I’m not sure why, and I’m definitely not certain where it will end, but I do know one thing: it’s gonna be a hell of a ride.” He nudged my nose, one side of his mouth tugging up. “I can’t wait.”

Release Blitz for Twisted Truths




Title: Twisted Truths
Series: The Regretful Lies Duet #2
Author: Gina Azzi
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 2, 2020



Blurb

Some truths are twisted tighter than lies.

Forcing Eli to hate me shatters my heart.

It devastates me more than watching him fall back into the arms of his ex-girlfriend.

It cuts deeper than pretending I don’t care.

But I do it to protect his future happiness; I do it for him.

Eli swallows the lies I feed him and exhales them as twisted truths.

He discovers my secret and embraces the anguish crippling my soul.

Relentless. Determined. Desperate.

I couldn’t push him away again if I tried.

And I’m done trying.
