True (Temptation #6) by Ella Frank: Cover Reveal


Blurb:

True - adjective: That which is accurate or exact.

I dare you to try.
I think you’re my truth.
Terrify me.
Marry me.
Marry me.
Marry me...

Four years ago, Logan Mitchell walked into Tate’s life and challenged him to see it differently.

He dared Tate to try a kiss, when normally he wouldn’t have.

He begged him to take a chance, when he probably shouldn’t have.

But most importantly, he asked Tate to trust that he would love him, and he did. From that moment on, Tate realized exactly what his life had been missing—Logan.

Happily-ever-afters come in many different forms. But for Tate Morrison, there’s only one ending he wants. The one where the guy marries the guy and true love conquers all.

Now all he has to do is tell Logan.

Join Logan and Tate as they finally realize what the rest of us knew all along. That they belong together for better or worse—always.

Love So Wild (The Lawson Brothers #8) by Marquita Valentine: Blog Tour Excerpt


Blurb:

Pilot Elijah Lawson always knew he’d return to Jessamine, marry a hometown girl and settle into very predictable life. After all, he made promises to his parents that once he’d gotten his fill of adventure that he would do exactly that… and Eli was a man of his word. Only he's never been able to get the bewitching redhead he’d fallen hard for two years earlier out of his head and he’s afraid that no woman in Jessamine will ever measure up.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop his family from trying to set him up with every single woman in town… until Skye Holland shows up on his doorstep.

The only reason Skye Holland moved back to North Carolina was so she could do the right thing for her one year old son. A boy, after all, needed his father, while she… she simply needed a fresh start. But first, she has to let Eli know that their red-hot affair had consequences. Consequences she has no intentions of repeating, no matter how many old feelings come rushing to the surface when they’re together.

Too bad for Skye that Elijah has other ideas and he’s not going to let this second chance at love get away again.

Excerpt:

She rushed out of the kitchen before anyone could stop her, going as fast as she could without breaking into a run. But by the time she got to her room, Elijah had caught up. He grabbed her by the arm and pushed her inside, closing the door behind them

“Mind telling me what that was all about?” he asked, even as sparks of desire tripped up and down her arm from where their skin touched.

Did he feel it, too?

“I was only stating the truth,” she insisted.

“Your truth is to tell us that we shouldn’t bother getting to know you because all that matters is Miles?”

She closed her eyes for a moment. “Of course, he’s all that matters. I stopped mattering as soon as he was born!”

“Well, that’s not how we do things in this family. You matter just as much."

Double Cover Reveal by Laura Kaye: On His Knees & Switching for Her


A note from Laura Kaye…

I’m excited to share the amazing cover art for the last two books in my erotic romance Blasphemy series. These are both standalone reads, and they’re going to be scorching hot and so full of emotion! Be sure to add them to your Goodreads and preorder them today! Now, check this out:

On His Knees (Blasphemy #5)

Blurb:

Getting on his knees makes him question everything…and want even more…

Another failed relationship has lawyer Jamie Fielding confronting the truth—he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to submit and to be used—hard. When a friend invites him to the exclusive Blasphemy club, Jamie is stunned to find everything he ever wanted—in the fierce, ruthless hands of a man.

Psychiatrist Alex McGarry will play with anyone who craves his rough brand of domination, but what he really wants is to settle down. Which makes the submissive male he meets at his club a bad idea—the man might be hot as hell but he’s also new to everything Alex has to offer. Except that doesn’t keep them from coming together again and again, sating every one of their darkest desires. Master Alex sets Jamie’s whole world on fire and makes him question everything—and that’s good. Because Alex won’t tolerate hiding what they have for long and he wants much more than just having Jamie on his knees...

Releases: February 13, 2018


Switching for Her (Blasphemy #6)

Blurb:

She’s the only one who’s ever driven him to his knees…

Blasphemy founder and hedge fund manager Hale O’Keeffe is spiraling. Nothing in his life makes sense anymore—and nothing gives him pleasure, either. Not his work, not his club, and not domination. Feeling like a fraud, he turns to an old friend for help—and receives an offer he’s surprisingly tempted to take.

Real estate investor Alina Lane likes to switch things up—houses, investments, and partners, too. She enjoys commanding and being commanded. But not everyone likes to switch, so she’s stunned when sexy, brooding, crush-from-afar Hale attends one of her private parties and reveals he needs something more, something different. Something she’s always fantasized about but never thought he’d accept. Soon, one scorching night turns into many, and Hale realizes he’s found everything he’s been searching for. But Alina won’t be anyone’s dirty little secret, forcing Hale to decide if he’s brave enough to admit to the other Masters of Blasphemy that he craves serving her as much as dominating her.

Excerpt:

Even still, the memory of Nika’s lips on mine burned me more than the acidic feeling of the sunlight as it had finally penetrated the window and seared my skin. Feeling her kiss again had lifted me in a way I’d never expected to be lifted. Our last goodbye kiss was soft, sweet, tender, but full of so much passion. But even it paled in comparison to the taste of her blood in my mouth. The memory wasn’t leaving me. That sensuous liquid had absorbed my every thought and desire. Her heartbeat raging in my ears had drowned out all reason. Clamping onto her neck had felt so natural to me, so right. I’d wanted nothing more than to tear through her skin and feel that burst of warmth course down my aching throat. Oddly enough, I had a feeling Nika would have let me bite her; I thought she’d even wanted me to. But I wouldn’t hurt her in that way, regardless of what the demon inside me wanted.

Once I was inside the lowest level, I breathed a sigh of relief. Shutting the soundproof doors meant shutting out Nika’s honey voice, a voice that plagued my dreams, made me ache in ways that reminded me that a man still lived inside this body of a monster. The way her dress had clung to her, the way my hands had felt running over her body, her warm breath washing over my face, the desire in her eyes, the fire in her kiss … I hadn’t expected her to undo me as quickly as she had. I was putty in her hands, and I’d nearly lost control. But I couldn’t afford to. I wouldn’t snap. Now, or ever. I would remain in full control of this lust. And that meant I had to stay away from Nika. She was too desirable to me. All I would bring her was pain. Or death. And I couldn’t handle either of those scenarios happening.

I would tell her. Tonight, I would tell her. We couldn’t be together, not like we were before. I needed her to stay away from me. I needed her to let me go. Please, Nika, let me go.

Michelle's Review:

After waiting with bated breath for what felt like an eternity for the follow up to S.C. Stephens' The Next Generation and Hunter's story, I was beyond excited to finally be getting my hands on The Beast Within. While I knew Hunter's story would be an angsty one, rife with internal struggle, self-loathing, and denial, I was surprised to find a story of unconditional love, family, belonging, and forgiveness as well. A wonderful addition to the Conversion series taking us in a new and completely unexpected direction, I can only hope it isn't the last we see of the Adams family for a very long time.

Hunter, as can be expected, had a whole lot of inner turmoil going into this book and needed to find help and support and acceptance. Whether he will ever truly accept what he has turned into is still yet to be seen, but the journey that he takes in order to hopefully get there is exactly what I had hoped for, and then some. The love that Hunter had found, and that I'm sure we've all been hoping he will embrace with Nika, is sweet and tension filled, absolute, and drama ridden and takes you for a ride through some twists and turns you could easily foresee and some that will completely throw you for a loop.

While centered around the aftermath of Hunter's conversion and Nika's ever present and unwavering love, The Beast Within is full of surprises, action packed, and keeps you on your toes. The Adams family is anything but ordinary and each member of the family 's story seems to get even more difficult and suspenseful as we go. Hunter's story may seem to be going exactly the way it should be but watch out, one surprise begins to shake everything up leading to a domino effect throughout every piece of the story and culminating in an ending I never saw coming.

Captivating, thrilling, and the perfect continuation of Hunter, Nika, and even Julian's story. Almost as exciting as the end of The Next Generation, I can't wait for more from these three.
