Title: Manic Monday

Authors: Piper Rayne

Publishing Date: April 26th

Cover Designer: RBA Designs

The perfect man for me is a blood-sucking lawyer. #pfftwhatever
Been there.
Done that.
Burned the T-shirt.
I didn’t swear off all men after my divorce, but I sure as hell swore off anyone remotely like my ex. On the top of that list? Attorneys. Everyone knows they can’t be trusted.
Now that I’m back in Chicago, my focus is my daughter, my mom and me. I haven’t given up on finding my happily-ever-after, it’s just on hold—indefinitely.
Then I see Reed Warner again, and he weasels his way into every part of my life, not willing to take no for an answer.
In spite of my better judgment I can’t stop thinking about the way his designer suits fit his muscular frame, or the way his blue eyes seem to eat me up with every glance.
You know when you’re on a diet and even hummus seems irresistible? Reed is like the equivalent of chocolate ├ęclair and my willpower is fading fast.
The problem? Not only is he a lawyer…
He was the best man at my wedding.

Release Blitz for Hot Boy by Cassie-Ann L. Miller




Title: Hot Boy
Series: Blue Collar Bachelors #4
Author: Cassie-Ann L. Miller
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: April 17, 2018



Blurb

Save a fire truck, ride a firefighter. Isn't that what they say?

Ben Riggs says he loves me. He says he hasn't stopped thinking about me since he broke my heart and chased me out of town all those years ago...

I say liar, liar, pants on fire.

And boy, do those bright yellow, flame-resistant fireman pants look good on him. I'm aching to feel those big, rough hands clenching on my hips and to collect on the illicit promises burning in his dark blue eyes.

Self-control goes up in flames every time he flashes that arrogant smile. So I give in—because a woman has needs. (Am I right, ladies?) He can have my body but my heart is off-limits. I've worked hard over the past few years to prove to myself that I can be successful without him in my life.

But Ben says he won't stop until he wins me back—mind, body and heart. He says I'd better stop trying to resist him. He may be a fireman but I'm the one fighting like hell against the inferno of lust and nostalgia closing in on us.

And it's a fight I can't afford to lose...


Hot Boy is a steamy, laugh-out-loud second chance, firefighter romance set in small town Illinois. It is book 4 in the Blue Collar Bachelors series.

Trailer



Excerpt

His face disappears into the curve of my neck and he feathers kisses on my skin. This is crazy. I can't stay silent anymore. 

"Ben?"

He tenderly pushes my bangs from my face and stares deeply into my eyes. "Yes, sweetheart?" His breath fans lightly over my face. I hear harps in the background and angel feathers float down from the sky...

Eye roll.

"This is the cheesiest moment of my life," I snort.

He falls back onto his haunches and glares down at me in the dim room. "Angie, I'm trying to make this romantic."

"I'm not your girlfriend. I don't need romantic. I need hard and deep."

He hisses and that simple sound tells me that my words have stung him. "Angela..."
"I wish you'd stop treating me like some fragile, delicate flower. Maybe I was once upon a time but now I'm not. Because you broke me...So fuck me like you mean it."


A tense moment passes between us as I struggle to read his expression. 

Propped up on his powerful forearms, he hovers above me, pinning me to the mattress with his icy glare. "So, you want me to fuck you, huh?"

I lift a hand and trace the sinewy ridges of his forearm. "Yes--Fuck. Me." I grind out the words through a clenched jaw, shamelessly conveying my need.

After a long moment of hesitation, something inside of him seems to break. His eyes harden. All emotion slips away. The calloused palm of his left hand rides a path from the curve of my ass to the bend of my knee. His fingers tighten roughly and the light burn of it spreads deliciously across my skin. "You're sure that's what you want?" His voice is dangerously raspy and low.

I feel my reaction in the space between my thighs. "Yes."

With a hard yank, he locks my left leg around his hip. "Do you know what you're asking me to do?"

"Yes." I'm asking you to turn off everything that you think you feel and give me an orgasm that will make me forget that I still love you.

Release Blitz for Loving the Secret Billionaire by Adriana Anders




Title: Loving the Secret Billionaire
Series: Love at Last #1
Author: Adriana Anders
Genre: Contemporary Romance Novella
Release Date: April 19, 2018



Blurb

Mystery man, recluse, finance guru… Virgin.

I was a shut-in for a reason. With too many secrets, too much to hide, and way too much at stake, I spent years in my mansion in the woods, never trusting a soul.
So, when a stranger showed up at my door, with her plans to save the world, I should have sent her away, like I’d always done.
From the second she arrived, I couldn’t resist Veronica Cruz. She was everything I’d been missing—passionate, generous, and so damned sexy.
I let her into my life, gave her everything—including my heart.
Now, the one thing she wants is the truth. The question is, will she still love me when she knows my secret?

Loving the Secret Billionaire is a sexy standalone novella in the Love at Last series, featuring a virgin hero and a slightly older woman.

Originally published in the Rogue Desire anthology, this edition has been expanded with new material.

Excerpt

“Why are you helping me?”
I shook my head for a few beats—deny, deny, deny… Which was what I always did. But if I denied it, then she’d leave. And I wouldn’t get another chance.
Now I had to put it in a way that wouldn’t piss her off.
“Seemed unfair.”
“What did?”
“You going it alone against that family.” I didn’t add that I’d gone over their financials—hers and theirs—and those three extra zeros in their campaign coffers seemed like an unfair advantage. I doubted she’d seen my donation yet, or she’d have said something… Although no way could she follow the paper trail back to me on that one.
“That’s so pathetic.” I hated the defeat in her voice.
“What is?”
“You felt sorry for me, so you—”
“Hell, no. That’s not what it is.”
“Well then, what?”
You smell good and your passion gets me hard wasn’t exactly something I could say, so I went with, “You believe in your mission. That worked for me.”
“It’s still pitiful.”
“Is it? You mean the part about being alone or the part where you truly believe in what you’re doing?”
“I don’t… I’m not sure.”
“Because, if you mean being alone.” I waved a hand toward the empty house behind me. “It’s kind of my thing.”
“I’m sorry, I didn’t—”
“I know.” I half laughed. None of this was going how I’d pictured it. Then again, I hadn’t exactly planned this thing out. I’d just gone against all of my own rules and helped a stranger. “I’m not great at joking. In person, at least.”
“In person?”
Crap. Wrong thing to say.
“I uh…spend a lot of time online.”
“Oh. Right.” Her feet shuffled on the porch boards. Was she about to leave?
“Would you…” I cleared my throat and ignored the voice of reason screaming at me to shut up. “Would you like a coffee?”
“Oh no, I couldn’t interrupt your work.” She took a step back.
“You’re not. I mostly work at night.”
“What is it you d—” If she didn’t ask, I wouldn’t have to lie, so I stopped her.
“You want something stronger than coffee? I’ve got beer. Not much else.” I lifted the bottom hem of my shirt and wiped the sweat from my forehead.
“Oh, no, I should—” She exhaled with a strange whistling sound. I dropped the shirt and waited for her to finish. “I’d love to.”
“Come on in.” I said the words, she slid inside, and now it was too late to kick her out, even if I wanted to. 
Which I didn’t, though it was clear this was a very bad idea.

Cover Reveal for Hotel O by Clarissa Wild




Title: Hotel O
Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Erotic Romance
Cover Design: Clarissa Wild's Booming Covers
Release Date: May 1, 2018



Blurb

Pleasure is business.
That’s our motto here at Hotel O.
No strings attached gratification is what we provide. Nothing is off limits.
And all of it stays within these walls.
My job as the organizer of these events requires a personal sacrifice.
Girlfriends are a liability I can’t afford.
So I get my own satisfaction somewhere else.
Online.
Anonymous.
Nothing beyond a one-night stand …
And I’ve found the perfect toy to play with.
A persistent, equally wicked girl that I can’t say no to.
The girl who’s going to make me risk it all.

Welcome to Hotel O … Enjoy your stay.

Author’s Note: Hotel O is complete and utter filthiness. Expect lots of debauchery … with multiple people. Please do not read if you’re easily offended or do not enjoy romances that explore the boundaries of depravity … Don’t say I didn’t warn you.






Excerpt

Her hands move up along her back and clip off the bra.
When that too tumbles to the floor, my eyes focus on her nipples that tighten as I stare. Her face isn’t red anymore like before. She looks confident, completely at ease. Like she’s not at all afraid of what I’m going to say … as if she already knows I like what I see.
Not soon after her panties follow, and I’m finding myself getting a hard-on just watching her stand still in the middle of my office, completely naked and ready to bend to my will.
But this girl isn’t here for me, she’s here for my clients.
At least … that’s what she wants me to think. But I’m still not convinced.
“Turn,” I say, swirling my finger in the air.
Her hips sway as she spins on her heels, her thick ass pushing all the right buttons. She’d be a great performer. Definitely.
But there is something about her. Something that I can’t let go.
Defiance. It seeps through everything she does. The way she walks, how she struts, the way she looks at me with that intent gaze, as if she’s waiting for my reaction and it never comes.
Too tough to say no to … but I’m going to have to make the call based on what I know my clients need right now. And this isn’t it.
“Pass,” I say.
She stays put, the look on her face rapidly changing from confusion to annoyance. “What?”
“It’s a no from me,” I say. “Put your clothes back on.”
She parts her lips, but again no words flow. Then she slams it shut again and silently picks up her things. No matter how many times I try to divert my eyes back to my laptop so I can continue finishing work, I keep glancing at her as she puts her clothes back on. For some reason I’m agitated, but I have no clue why. The whole room is oozing with an uncomfortable silence, and I don’t like it one bit.
As she walks towards the door, I get up. Something compels me to say, “Wait.”
What that something is eludes me, but I can’t allow her to leave.
She stops in her tracks, still facing away from me, as if my voice was the only thing that made her stay.
I step away from my desk and approach her, narrowing my eyes to get a good look. There’s something about her … about her body, her voice, her eyes … and I need to know …
“Put your hair up,” I command.
Her hand wraps around her brown hair and tugs it up into a ponytail.
I don’t even need to see her face to know …
It’s her.
I place a hand on her shoulder and lean in. A grin spreads across my lips as a rumbling noise leaves my throat. “I know it’s you … Kitten …”

EXCERPT

“Does this bother you?”
“Your presence?” I asked, my voice shaky.
“My touch.” There was no waver to his voice. Fluid as water, strong as steel, as assured as any man would be, knowing he'd cornered his prey.
“No.” I inhaled. “Yes.” Exhaled. “Maybe.”
Dark laughter danced along the breeze. “That’s not an answer. Or perhaps it’s the most accurate answer of all.”
When I thought he would continue taunting me as the tips of his fingers stroked up and down, never reaching my knee, never going any place inappropriate, he surprised me with an unexpected question.
“Will you be attending the Masquerade Ball next week?”
“The what?” I squeaked, willing his fingers to go just a little higher, to breach the curve of my knee...to explore down. As usual, he refused to give me what I wanted. I was practically squirming when he finally answered.
“Our annual Masquerade Ball. It is one of the biggest events for the Wishing Well. Every person will be elegantly dressed, their masks concealing their faces. Everybody who is somebody will be there.”
His fingers swept up to tickle the back of my knee and I felt heat bloom between my legs. Just as I thought he’d follow the curve to the back of my thigh, he changed direction, a whisper of touch dragging back down along my calf.
I struggled to speak intelligently, my eyes shut, the bench still softly swinging as birdsong crept within the silence of a clear spring day. Opening my eyes as his fingers kept brushing the skin, a touch but not really, I watched white cotton clouds dance along azure skies, the verdant green of fresh leaves rustling across the dainty branches of tall trees. “I’m just a housekeeper. I’m not sure that qualifies me as somebody.”
“My interest in you qualifies you as somebody,” he answered.

Believe it or not, writing was never a dream for Cary. Reading was something she never enjoyed growing up. All it took was one friend, who went MIA for a weekend on a book binge, to share her passion and loan an ebook, lighting a fire inside her.  Two years, and hundreds of ebooks later, she connected with one of her favorite authors, who patiently listened to her plot ideas. Her encouragement and saying those three little words “You write it!” changed everything!

So, welcome! Hop on board, and enjoy the ride!
