Release Boost for Rogue Love by Michelle St. James






Title: Rogue Love
Series: Kings of Corruption #1
Author: Michelle St. James
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 21, 2017






Blurb


FBI agent Braden Kane has been going it alone ever since a family scandal sent him running straight from the Ivy League into Special Forces. That’s where he learned the hardest lesson of all — we’re all alone in the end. And nobody can save us.



When a raid goes terribly wrong, walking out is almost instinctual. Following the rules is for suckers. There’s only one way to get things done, and that’s to do it off the books. By the time he walks out, he knows there’s only one thing he’ll miss.



Her.



Nora Murphy never really had a choice. Law enforcement was in her blood.



Raised by an old-school Irishman in a houseful of brothers, she learned early on there was only one way to survive.



Be stronger. Be smarter. Be better.



A devastating personal loss only made it easier to focus on the things that made sense. There was no room for romance. And certainly no room for love. Which made tabling her attraction to friend and fellow agent Braden Kane a no-brainer. But Braden’s defection from the FBI opens the door to their relationship in a new and surprising way. Nora’s still getting her head around the possibilities when she’s assigned an important case involving a string of high-profile crimes. She can’t wait to bring down the ring of brash vigilantes — until a shocking connection to Braden reveals itself in in the middle of their burgeoning affair.



Now they’re on opposite sides of law and order. But can either of those things compete with love?

Excerpt



He shut the door, watched her walk into the open living room. She made her way to the big window that offered up a prime water view during the day. The lights from the walk street outside lit up her face; the high cheekbones, full mouth, heart-shaped face.

She turned to look at him. “What are you doing?”

“Watching you.”

She shrugged a little. “Why?”

There was so much honesty in the question. Like she really didn’t know why he would want to look at her.

Like she really didn’t know how beautiful she was.

He pushed off the door, walked slowly toward her, stopping when only an inch separated their bodies. He reached down, lay his palm against her cheek, rubbed his thumb against her skin.

“Because for years I’ve had to sneak glimpses of you. And now I want to really see you.”

She was breathing heavy as he looked down at her, a flush spreading from her cheeks to the barely-visible cleavage under her black T-shirt. “I want to see you too.”

“You’re going to see me, Nora.” He lowered his head, stopping when his lips were almost touching hers. “And you’re going to feel me, too.”

He pressed his mouth to hers, slipped his tongue inside as he angled his head, already needing to take the kiss deep. Needing to taste every inch of her mouth, to prove to himself that she was real.

That this was real.

Her hands slid around his waist, traveled up his back as she pressed herself against him. The feel of her stomach against his rigid cock sent a shockwave of desire through him. It blocked out everything else, and for a long moment he was lost to the sensation of her mouth, the warmth of her body, separated from his only by the thin layer of clothes. He already knew what it would feel like to sink into her, to feel her smoothness under him as he took her.

Her hands came back around to his chest, traveling over his pecs, down to his stomach as she kissed him feverishly, matching the urgency of his tongue stroke for stroke. He growled when she flattened her hand against the bulge in his pants, her small palm cupping the erection that had been torturing him for the last two hours.

Hell, for the last five years.

He took hold of her wrist, not trusting himself under her touch. “I’ve waited years for this moment, Nora. And if you touch me I won’t be able to wait a second longer.”

She looked up into his eyes. “I don’t care.”

“I care.” He swept her into his arms, surprised by how light she was. She was so formidable at work. A warrior. But he’d always suspected she was all softness and warmth underneath it all.

Now he was ready to find out.

He made his way through the dark apartment, down the hall, and into the bedroom. He set her on the bed, then turned to open the windows, letting in a gust of salty air on the night breeze. He turned to look at her, sitting on the edge of the bed.

Waiting for him.

“Take off your clothes, Nora.”

She lifted her chin, leaned back on the bed, propping herself up on her forearms. “Take them off yourself.”

He stalked slowly toward her, wishing her defiance wasn’t such a fucking turn-on. It would only make taking his time more difficult. If she’d been anyone else, he would have laid down the law; the bedroom was his domain.

He was in control here. He made the rules.

But she wasn’t anyone else. She was the woman of his dreams. He would still be in control when push came to shove, but he would take it slow.

He stopped at the bed, looked down at her. “We’re playing by my rules now, Nora. Now please take off your clothes.”

A small smile crept onto her face as she stared him down through the moonlight making its way into the room. He thought she might argue, rebel. Instead she sat up, pulled off her T-shirt. His eyes were still glued to the magnificent swell of her breasts, barely hidden by a lacy pink bra, when she unbuttoned her jeans, lowered the zipper, lifted her hips off the bed as she shimmied them down her hips.

He almost couldn’t breathe as she tossed them aside, her porcelain skin glowing in the darkness. She was naked except for the bra and a matching scrap of fabric that covered the mound between her legs, just enough hidden to push his imagination into overdrive.

When she spoke, her voice was husky. “That’s as far as I go without you. You’re going to have to meet me halfway, Kane.”

He stripped off his shirt, then unbuttoned his pants, dropped them to the floor. His cock sprang free, both a relief and further torture with the refuge of Nora’s body so close.

He stood at the edge of the bed, ran his palms up her delicate feet to the shapely calves. Then he hooked his hands behind her knees and pulled her to the edge of the bed.

He knelt between her legs, inhaling the scent of her. “I think you’ll find I’m willing to meet you more than halfway.”

Cover Reveal for Elapse by Lou-Ella Fields.





Title: Elapse
Series: The Expiration Duet #1
Author: Lou-Ella Fields
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2017




Blurb


I thought our love was
infinite, unbreakable. 

After six years together,
butterflies would still take flight in my stomach every time he walked into a
room. With just one smile I was putty in his hands. He promised me forever with
every touch of his lips. Too late, I realized that I was being kept in an
illusion made of glass; only to have him smash it apart and disappear
before he could see it shatter around me in perfect ruins.

With a tiny life held in
the palm of my hands, I'm haunted by the man who abandoned us.

And then there was him.

Immersing himself within
the dust and debris as I was slowly opening my eyes to this new reality. He
says he wants forever, but how can I believe him when love lies and forevers
don't truly exist.

Jo Raven Dirty Princes: A Standalone MMF Romantic Comedy



Title: Dirty Princes: A Standalone MMF Romantic Comedy
Author: Jo Raven 
Genre: Menage Romance 











Once upon a time, there lived a princess called Brylee who had a cat and a steady job and her eye on a handsome prince.
But Prince Ryan refused to put out. So she baked cookies and buttered muffins, without any double meaning whatsoever, and saved her cherry for her prince.
Who was being difficult and not following the damn script.
Then Riddick walked through the door and ate her cookie.
Literally, okay? It was a good cookie, too, with chocolate chip.
Riddick is drop-dead gorgeous, but not a prince. Regardless, Brylee can’t fight that burning attraction.
Even when Ryan does a turn-about and starts showing interest in her, after all this time.
This isn’t how things were supposed to happen. She was supposed to get a prince, not get caught between a hot prince and a hunky pauper.
Come on.
Especially not when said prince and pauper can’t stand each other.
Brylee isn’t above letting two men fight for her. That’s the essence of a good fairytale, right? A fight, a winner, a grand wedding and a happily ever after.
It’s fine. After all, she doesn’t want them both.
At the same time. In her bed. Like, ever.

Reconnaissance.
With a wink at Simone, I get up from my rowing machine and grab my towel, then make my way toward him.
This is a huge gym, new, the machines gleaming, the people dressed in trendy exercise clothes, their MP3 players flashing as they move. Strong, lithe bodies, with barely any hint of sweat.
Self-consciously I adjust my top. It’s like everyone passed an exam to enter. It makes me wonder how Simone and I made the cut.
Not that I don’t take care of my body. I sure do, and I even drag my best friend Candy along when she’s not too busy having wild sex with her two boyfriends.
Two. Boyfriends. Did you catch that?
Total overkill if you ask me. And still no idea how she did it. I’ve been trying to get one guy—Ryan—for the past year, one—and still no dice.
It doesn’t matter. It will be worth it in the end. Not everyone gets their soulmate on the first try.
Or the hundredth, for that matter. Hundred-and-twenty-fifth to be precise. Hey, it’s a good number. These things take work.
And I do work it as I approach Ryan, as Simone advised me to do after watching Pretty Woman, swinging my hips and lifting my chin, letting my ponytail swish against my back.
He’s getting ready to start, draping his manly black towel on the seat of a rowing machine and… whoa.
Red alert. His T-shirt molds to an impressively sculpted chest and set of shoulders, his corded arms in full display, a picture straight out of Men’s Health magazine.
Holy guacamole.
Woo.
But of course I shouldn’t be shocked. I chose him. He’s everything a man should be. He just has to see I am the girl for him.
That’s why he’s single. He’s been waiting for me all along.

    Book Blitz: By Any Other Name: A Retelling of Romeo and Juliet by Laura Greenwood


    Book Blitz:
    By Any Other Name:
    A Retelling of Romeo and Juliet
    by
    Laura Greenwood
    Mar 25th - Mar 31st















    “For never was a story more of woe
    Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”
    - Prince (5:3:309)

    For years, the vampire clans of Paris have been at war due to a feud between the Barons Capulet and Montague. When one fight goes too far, the Prince gives the clans an ultimatum; cease the fights or burn at dawn.

    Baron Capulet, and his wife, are protective of their only child, Josie. Living a sheltered life, Josie had never even thought about love or marriage until her parents start arranging one. Romain Montague thought he knew what love was, until he sneaks into a Capulet party and sees Josie from across the room.

    A faithful retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. Please be warned that the ending has not been changed.



















    I like to write whichever weird and wonderful tale comes into my head, which makes identifying the genre difficult even for me! My first series, Alventia, are novellas centred around Keira, aka Sleeping Beauty, and her Prince Philip, along with their allies Hansel and Gretel. It's a tale that very much told itself as I started to write it!

    While I'm not writing, I work in Catering and am also an Assistant Brownie Guide Leader in the Midlands (UK). I like to bake and I love to read, and like with my writing, I read an eclectic mix of genres, and love every minute of it!
