Blurb:
I am the monarch of Manhattan’s underworld.
A corrupt king, ruling a sinful empire.

I wasn’t born to the crown.
Nevertheless, I wear it well.

Aislinn Granville is the Crown Jewel of my empire—my queen.
To my enemies, she’s my Achilles heel—a perfect pawn.

Without her, I am a wounded warrior.
A ruthless, relentless beast.

There is nowhere she can be taken that I won’t find her.
No adversary I won’t crush to get her back.

Even if I have to burn this city to the ground.

 

 

Excerpt:
My heartbeat is an erratic, distracting pitter-patter against my ribs as I take in the stark beauty of the man standing in front of me. He looks like the same man I ran from. Almost. 

The same rich black hair and inky eyelashes. The same strong, shadowed jawline and high, elegant cheekbones. The same spark of intensity lighting up those dark, dark eyes. 

But now there are smudges beneath them. And faint horizontal lines, like the silvery remnants of a shattered spider web, crossing his forehead. 

Damon is glaring at me like an adversary he’s torn between spanking or fucking. There is yearning in his gaze, a faint glimmer of tenderness beneath his infuriated expression. 

I like it. A lot. 

The panic and fear and pure terror that filled my veins just a few hours ago hasn’t yet evaporated. Those intense emotions are still there, like toxins that have yet to be flushed from my system. I don’t want to be treated with kid gloves. Not by Damon King. 

I need his intensity now more than ever. I am desperate to revel in the raging storm Damon and I create when we’re together. The kind of storm that deserves a name. Deserves to be written in history books for its power . . . and for the toll of its destruction. 

I want the shocking illumination of lightning. The ominous energy of thunder. 

I want to give and take. 

Clash and break. 

Writhe and shake. 

“Damon.” I say his name like a warning. I need the savage who claimed me as his own. My savage king. 

He presses a firm kiss to my forehead, his fingers lightly pushing into the hair at the base of my scalp. “Tell me this,” he says. “Is there any hurt I can’t kiss better?” 

The throaty rumble of Damon’s voice is like a liberal pour of molasses on my frayed nerves. “No.” My nose is flush with his chest and I breath deep that scent I didn’t think I would ever smell again. Wood and whiskey and raw masculinity. So damn intoxicating. 

He sweeps his tongue along the rim of my ear. “Is there any hurt I can’t lick better?” 

The tension in my shoulders eases as I flatten my palms against his chest. “No.” 

Damon lifts my chin, our eyes locking on each other. “Is there any hurt I can’t fuck better?” 

My cheeks warm as I draw my lower lip between my teeth. Then I shake my head slowly, “No.” 

He smiles that darkly seductive grin and my stomach flips. “Let’s go take a shower.” 

I nod my head eagerly. A long hot shower sounds perfect. A long hot shower—with my savage king—sounds downright exquisite. By the time the water is running, my borrowed bathrobe is just a white smudge of bad memory strewn across the tile floor. 

Damon begins unbuttoning his shirt and I eagerly reach for his belt. When he is as naked as I am, he cups my chin between his thumb and forefingers and tips it upward. His kiss is hard but not punishing. The perfect amount of pressure. 

I moan low in my throat. 

He growls in return. And when we pull apart, we are wearing matching lust-drunk grins. 

“Do you trust me?” he asks. 

“I thought you said I shouldn’t trust anyone who has to ask.” 

“I’m asking now.” 

The truth falls from my lips. “With my life.”

Review

This book starts where the first one left off with reminders to refresh your memory. Aislinn has been kidnapped and it determined to survive and get back to her king Damon. Damon is tearing the city apart looking for his Queen and woe to the people or person that is responsible for kidnapping her. The chemistry is hot between the couple and just as intense. This is such a good read and ending for the duet.

AVAILABLE NOW!

 
 

SYNOPSIS

To get what he wants, he’ll have to play a game of dirty pool.

Michel Marcello never wanted to be a mafioso like every other man in his family—he wanted to be more. That doesn’t mean he’s unfamiliar with the life, or that he can’t hold his own against other made men.

They forgot where he came from …

His chance encounter with the fiery and beautiful daughter of Detroit’s most notorious Irish mob boss stokes flames beyond the ones that ignite between Michel and Gabbie Casey. Rivals shouldn’t mix, but these opposites have never been more attracted, either.

The lines between family loyalty, their duties, and responsibility begin to blur.

Love ruins all.

But these two aren’t the only ones playing this game, and it just became far more dangerous to get out alive.

*

Dirty Pool is a standalone romantic suspense.

Release Blitz & Review: Unattainable by Jamie Schlosser

Title: Unattainable
Series: Night Time Television
Author: Jamie Schlosser
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 9, 2019

The last person I expected to see on this tropical island is my ex. Although, since I never actually broke up with her, isn’t she technically still my girlfriend?

Yeah, I’ve got some explaining to do. And groveling. Probably some begging, too. Good thing we’re stuck at this resort together for the next three weeks. 

Corrine Harper is the only girl I’ve ever wanted, and I won’t let her slip through my fingers again. They call me Aiden the unattainable. Consider me attained. 

“Laugh out loud funny moments, sweet, heart-wrenching words, and some drama to keep things interesting, this is a 5 star summer read!” – Author Melanie Moreland

“OH THANK THE BOOK GODS, UNATTAINABLE WAS DELIGHTFULLY ADORABLE, OUTRAGEOUSLY FUNNY AND BEAUTIFULLY SWEET!” – Marie’s Tempting Reads

“This book was a perfect little mix of everything. Real life problems, love, steamy times, and finding your own way in this world.” – Cranky – The Book Curmudgeon
“Why are you so hellbent on denying that we kissed?” he interrupted heatedly, splashing water to the side.

Some of the droplets sprayed my neck and chin, and I let out a gasp of outrage.

“Because!” It was my turn to slap the water, making sure some of it hit Aiden’s chest.

“Because why?” He splashed me again. Definitely on purpose this time. “Our lips touched. That’s a real kiss.”

Shoving my hands forward with all the force I could muster, I caused a wave to arc straight to Aiden’s face. I had to bite the inside of my cheek to hold in my smile when he sputtered and scrubbed his eyes.

“It was my first kiss,” I said, once he could see me again.

“Mine, too.”

I wanted to scream that it was my only kiss, but that would’ve been giving him too much power. “It’s the one that’s supposed to be important and magical. The one that’s supposed to be longer than a millisecond. It’s not your fault that it didn’t last longer, but I feel cheated—”

Without warning, Aiden lunged forward. For a second, I thought he was starting the splash war again, but instead of water, I was assaulted by a slab of hard muscle.

Backing me against the wall, he smashed his lips to mine.

Surprised, I gasped as a lifetime of pent-up passion overflowed in the form of a hard press of his mouth.

Now this… this was a kiss.
 
 

Jamie Schlosser grew up on a farm in Illinois surrounded by cornfields. Although she no longer lives in the country, her dream is to return to rural living someday.

HOSTED BY:

Blog Tour & Review: Tonight You’re Mine by Kayley Loring

IMG_0792

CHASE

The first time I saw Aimee Gilpin walk into a bar, it was love at first sight. She looks nothing like the women I usually go for, and everything like the woman I’d want to come home to every night. Then my best friend showed up and I had to let him pursue her. It was the right thing to do as a friend and business partner, but the wrong thing to do for my heart.

The second time I see Aimee walk into a bar, she has finally convinced my friend that she isn’t interested, and I was planning on drinking myself into oblivion to avoid calling her. She probably thinks I hate her. I tried to.

Tomorrow I’ll deal with my best friend and the company we built with his money and my brains.
Tonight, she’s mine.

AIMEE

The first time I saw Chase McKay at a bar, I thought I’d met the man of my dreams—I just didn’t recall the man of my dreams looking like the lead singer of a grunge band. Then as soon his friend showed up, Chase bolted like I was his worst nightmare.

The second time I see him in a bar, I can tell by the look in his eyes that we both regret his choice that first night. He has no idea that I just started working for the company that their company is about to start working with.

I don’t want to make things any more complicated than they already are, but I do want him like nobody’s business.

Tomorrow we’ll deal with the fact that Chase, his best friend and I will be working together.
Tonight, he’s mine.

Kayley Loring has, until recently, been a borderline workaholic living in Los Angeles. In the summer of 2017 she moved to a beautiful suburb of Portland, Oregon. She can now breathe clean air while enjoying the great outdoors, and drive around without swearing at strangers. It’s pretty great.

When not writing funny sexy sweet romantic comedy novels, she can happily channel her obsessive energies into plant hoarding, book hoarding, and staring at male models on Instagram (for research!). The rest of the time, she’s painting, feeding animals, eating her way through Portland with friends, cursing the many hours it takes to work off those delicious Portland meals, and trying to make her gosh darned wavy hair behave itself.

Review

Chase and Aimee meet at a bar but they are with their best friends. They like each other but Chase’s best friend and business partner is interested so he backs off. Aimee isn’t interested in Chase’s friend and the two end up meeting at the bar again. Only thing is the three of them will be working together at their business. A funny, sweet story that I enjoyed and recommend.

Book Blitz & Review: Share Me by Ker Dukey and K Webster

Share Me

by K Webster & Ker Dukey
Publication Date: May 9, 2019
Genres: Reverse Harem Standalone

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

From international bestselling authors, Ker Dukey and K Webster comes a steamy reverse harem standalone story from their KKinky Reads collection!

They have one job.

Keep me safe.

But none of us are safe against the allure we have when we’re together.

Control and professionalism used to be something they prided themselves on.

But now that we’re secluded and alone, lines blur and control quickly loses to need.

Someone is trying to snuff out my life, but they may not get the chance if I’m devoured whole by my saviors first.

About K. Webster

K Webster is the author of dozens of romance books in many different genres including contemporary romance, historical romance, paranormal romance, and erotic romance. When not spending time with her husband of twelve years and two adorable children, she’s active on social media connecting with her readers.

Her other passions besides writing include reading and graphic design. K can always be found in front of her computer chasing her next idea and taking action. She looks forward to the day when she will see one of her titles on the big screen.

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

Blurb:
Everything in my life has changed.
This woman, my paid companion, has turned my world upside down
… while making it right for the first time ever.

We were brought together by need.
Hers was money.
Mine was companionship. And sex.

Caitriona Louden gave me the girlfriend experience.
All of it.
And now she’s gone.

I’m not supposed to miss her.
I’m not supposed to love her.
But I do. Both.

Our contract expired, and she walked away.
Now my world is falling apart without her in it.
Because she is my everything.

A fairy-tale romance.
It’s ours to have.
And this woman I’ve come to love so dearly is my beautiful ever after.

 

Excerpt:
I open my office door and the woman is sitting in one of the chairs facing my desk. My eyes are drawn to the back of her long straight blond hair and my first thought is that it’s Cora. But then I remember that Cora’s hair isn’t that long. Or platinum blond.

“My apologies, Miss Morata. I’m sorry to keep you waiting.”

“Being made to wait implies that your time is more important than mine. And I assure you that my time is very important. And expensive. Ask any of my clients and they’ll tell you so.”

Her accent is strange. Is she faking a Scottish burr?

“I assure you I’m not under the impression that your time is less important than mine or anyone else’s.” I come around the chair and offer my hand. “It’s a pleasure to make your acquaint—.”

Green-brown hazel eyes. Long lashes. Nose adorned with a few scattered freckles.

Perfect. Red. Lips.

My wife.

My wife wearing a platinum blond wig?
