Excerpt

“Jesse, wait,” she breathes. “What are we doing here?”

I don’t hesitate. “What every soon-to-be married man and woman would do.”

She closes her eyes slowly, opening them again with a sigh. “But we’re not married. We’re not actually engaged. We’re not anything.”

“Don’t say that,” I almost bark. “We’re not ‘not anything.’”

Her stare narrows. “Then what are we?”

“I don’t know what you are,” I confess. “But I’m a man who can’t keep his hands off you. Who might die if he has to spend another second not doing to you all the things he’s dreamed…”

TOUR: Her Submission by Lisa Renee Jones

The second and final book in the Dirtier Duet by Lisa Renee Jones.
Abbie swore that she was done with rich, powerful men. They’ve hurt her. They’ve hurt her mother, who she will do anything to protect. She’s done playing the submissive. She’s ready to fight back. The problem is that Gabe Maxwell is one of those rich, powerful men and he refuses to be ignored. He’s in her path and she can’t seem to steer clear of him. He wants her. She wants him. But it’s not that simple. There is more to her story, more than Gabe knows, but then, there is more to Gabe’s story than Abbie knows, too.
“What do you want, Abbie?” Gabe demands, tearing his mouth from mine. “Say it. I need you to be clear. What do you want? But be careful what you ask for. You’ll get it.” “More,” I say, twisting my hands in his T-shirt. “More of you, Gabe. All of you.” He slides his hands under my leggings, palming my backside I left bare in the rush to take out Dexter. “More doesn’t get you a nice, funny guy, Abbie.” “Thank fuck for that. Show me. Stop hiding. Stop trying to be only what you think I want, Gabe. Stop trying to be less than you are because that makes us less than we can be.” “And if you can’t handle who I am?” I’m on fire now, poking the bear and I can’t hold back. “And you’re afraid to find out. Is fear all I make you feel?” His mouth suddenly crashes down on mine once more, his tongue pressing past my teeth, his kiss demanding, angry. He’s pissed. At me. At himself, I think, and that’s what I want to know. That’s the part of him I want to understand, I want to demand he show me. “Get undressed,” he orders, setting me back from him, crossing his arms in front of that broad perfect chest of his. My chin lifts in defiance, in refusal to allow him to intimidate me. Maybe he wants me to think he’s a monster like Kenneth. Maybe that should even piss me off but it doesn’t. It challenges me. I pull my shirt over my head and toss it aside. “See?” I say. “Sometimes I even follow orders.” I unhook my bra, shrugging it away, exposing my naked breasts, the cold air puckering my nipples. “I must be very, very afraid of you.” I toe off my shoes and peel away my leggings, no panties to fret with. I’m not wearing any. Naked now but for socks, I’m not messing with, I close the small space between us and stand in front of him. “Or maybe I was right. You’re the one who’s afraid.” He catches my hip and drags me to him. “You’re playing with fire.” “Stop warning me away and pulling me back. Choose, Gabe. All in, remember? Or is that code for only if it’s me?” His jaw clenches, his gaze lowering, raking over my naked breasts, and I can’t explain it, but I’m more naked right now, in this moment, with this man, than I’ve ever been before. “All in, Abbie. That’s what you want? That’s what you’ll get.” He backs me up and presses my hands on the bar behind me and at my sides. He shackles my hips, and pulls me forward, forcing me to use them to hold myself up. “Keep your hands there,” he orders. “If you move them, I’ll punish you.” Heat rushes through me but there is no fear. I don’t fear this man the way I feared Kenneth. I will never fear Gabe. I damn sure don’t fear the thick bulge of his erection pressing against my belly. “Punish me?” I challenge. “How would you punish me, Gabe?” “You still haven’t been properly spanked, now have Abbie?” “You spanked me, remember?” “That was a love pat, remember? A spanking” he adds, most likely for effect, as he’s watching me with hooded eyes. “My hands on your pretty little ass. My cock buried inside you while I make it burn.” His hand on my ass. Spanking me. His eyes lower to my mouth, linger with a promise of a kiss I crave but that doesn’t come, his gaze lifting with his own challenge. “Are you scared now?” “If that’s the goal, it’s safe to say that you failed. I’m pretty sure what’s going on with me right now, can not be described as fear. Are you scared?” I expect him to laugh or balk but he doesn’t. He leans in close, his lips at my ear, “From the day I met you, baby. From the day I met you.” He pulls back to look at me, blue eyes lit up and like fires in a forest, they burn a path through me. “And you’re right. I am pushing you. Right here. Right now. Don’t move.”

Beauty and the Professor.jpg

Once upon a time there was a beautiful college student…

Erin cleans Mr. Morris’s house twice a week to pay her tuition. The reclusive ex-soldier intimidates her, but she can’t help but feel sympathy for him. Then she walks in on him touching himself, and she has much darker, much more sensual feelings.

And a beastly professor with scars he can’t hide…

Blake Morris knows he’s scarred both inside and out. He’s reclusive and surly. Nowhere near good enough for the smart and beautiful young woman who cleans his house.

He receives an offer to return to his alma mater as an associate professor. This is his chance to reenter the world–and to be worthy of the woman he dreams about. He never expected to see her sitting in his classroom on the first day of the semester.

Author’s Note: This book was previously published as a serial in multiple parts, including Beauty Touched the Beast, Beneath the Beauty, and Broken Beauty. It’s been collected into this volume to make things easier for new readers.

NEW: Axeviathon

Axeviathon – Son of Dragons
Tessa Dawn
(A Pantheon of Dragons Novel)
Publication date: April 22nd 2019
Genres: Adult, Fantasy

As an immortal mercenary and all-around badass, Axeviathon Saphyrius has spent the last two centuries in service to a fearsome dragon lord, while biding his time awaiting his fated female – the one woman he is destined to claim and love.

He never expected to be cast into a nightmare fraught with shadow-walkers, sin-eaters, and lethal pagan enemies – he never expected his chosen mate to be up to her eyeballs in the same malevolent cult or to be used as an unwitting pawn in an epochs-old rivalry. So when his amulet heats up and her eyes turn sapphire blue, he knows he is in for a wild ride. This won’t be an ordinary claiming.

Amber Carpenter’s life may as well have been cursed. From her rocky upbringing in the foster-care system to her terrifying abduction at age fifteen by a ruthless pack of thugs, she has learned to play the hand life deals her. And somewhere along the way, she has even made peace with her tragic fate.

When a gorgeous, yet savage warrior strolls up to her teller line in King’s Castle Credit Union, Amber knows right away that something is wrong…

The way he looks at her…

The way he approaches her…

The fact that he already knows her name.

And his unnatural, hypnotic eyes—raven-black pupils surrounded by sapphire irises, a hidden fire blazing in their depths.

Amber knows he’ll be back.

When the savage demands of a dragyri male collide with the tragic misfortune of a human woman’s life, a race against time begins, and two very different worlds erupt into fire, passion, and devastation.

Author Bio:

Tessa Dawn grew up in Colorado, where she developed a deep affinity for the Rocky Mountains. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she worked for several years in criminal justice and mental health before returning to get her master’s degree in nonprofit management.

Tessa began writing as a child and composed her first full-length novel at the age of eleven. By the time she graduated high-school, she had a banker’s box full of short-stories and novels. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula. Her Dark Fantasy/Gothic Romance novels represent her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her passionate flair for storytelling.

Fifteen books later, Tessa now has readers in over 100 countries, and her novels have reached #1 bestselling status, eighteen times. Her personal author-ranking has climbed to #2 in Horror and #11 in both Fantasy and Paranormal, placing her on the Amazon charts next to two of her favorite authors: Stephen King and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Tessa currently splits her time between the Colorado suburbs and mountains, but she hopes to one day move to the country where she can own horses and what she considers “the most beautiful creature ever created” — a German shepherd.

Writing is her bliss.

Resources for new and aspiring book bloggers

You’ve decided you want to be a book blogger. Great! But where do you start? There are so many considerations that we’ll go into in future posts, but in the meantime, I want to share with you my top resources for book blogging. I will regularly update this post as I find new, tried, tested and Summers-approved resources and contacts.

Blogging and Reviewing

The first thing you’ll need to do is create your platform. To start with, this doesn’t need to be anything special—just a blog to post reviews and promos for your chosen reads. You’ll also need to sign up to be able to post reviews on other platforms to really support authors.

PR Companies

You’ll want to be signed up to a number of book promo companies to ensure you’re receiving all the latest book review and promo opportunities. There are loads of these around, so I’m sharing with you my tried and tested favourites that consistently deliver opportunities that interest me.

Branding

A professional logo is a must, and, eventually, a professionally-designed website will be on the horizon for you. Mine is currently being built as I write this, and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Equipment

The minimum is downloading the Kindle app on your phone or tablet, but, ideally, you’ll want to invest in an e-reader. I use the Kindle Paperwhite and I swear by it—it also means that I can’t get distracted as I know I would on a tablet/phone. A Kindle case will protect your purchase from scratches and damage if you’re lugging it about everywhere.

Marketing

Of course, you’ll need to sign your blog up on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to join the thriving book community.

Once you’re set up and posting and reviewing regularly, how do you get people to actually view your blog? My favourite marketing podcast is Chalene Johnson’s Build Your Tribe, which delivers regular content in easily digestible portions.

I also recommend joining the Book Blogger Support Group on Facebook, a community of like-minded people who help each other out, and one of the only book blogging groups not overrun with promotion.

I’d love to know your thoughts—is there anything I’ve missed or anything you can recommend? Let me know in the comments!

REVIEW: Royal Intentions by Janae Keyes

Title: Royal Intentions
Author: Janae Keyes
Genre: Interracial Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 19, 2019
For Dr. Whitney Young Ph.D., running away from her painful past was secretly her motivation. The further away she was from her family the better, and a teaching opportunity in the country of Vauxlance was precisely what she needed to keep her far away and focus on her career.
Prince Philippe De Le Stefan is the crown prince of the small western European country of Vauxlance. He’s also filled with pain due to the mistakes of his past. He’d give anything to be free of the guilt that plagued him.
A chance meeting at a lavish party brings together the two broken hearts of the economics professor and the prince.
Caught up in the excitement of romance, fast-paced lifestyles, celebrity, and academics, can the dynamic couple survive the pressures placed on them by outside and internal influences?

Review

A really fun and feel-good romance. I’m not the biggest fan of insta-love in the world, although this was probably the best-executed I’ve read. It’s definitely more of a light-hearted read, perfect for a summer’s day, but I prefer a bit more grit and conflict. There was an odd combination of overwriting and lacking in information—particularly critical plot information which seemed to be dropped in and relied upon to progress the storyline.

Overall, this was pretty OK, with some nice steamy scenes and an easy plot.

I should have died.
I should have been
forgotten.
But I didn’t, and I
wasn’t.
Living the life most women only dream about, I was madly in
love with my soulmate—Asher Valentine—amazing husband, loving father, and
rock’s favorite kick-ass front man. A man who loved me every day, in every way,
since we first met as teens fifteen years ago. We were blessed with a beautiful
daughter who was the light of our life. My all-female rock band was tearing up
the charts.
Then tragedy struck, and I lost it all.
Now all I have is a stack of journals, an antique key, and a
big black void where my memories should be.
Used to be.
And I have him—this man with wild hair, tattoos from head to
toe, a soft voice, and an even softer touch that gives me butterflies. He’s
clearly hopelessly in love with his wife.
I’m told that’s me.
But that wife is gone, and she took everything they once
had, leaving me in her place.
A broken replacement. A new version that doesn’t quite fit.
I’m slowly falling in love with him, but will he ever truly
love me? Or will he forever be in love
with her, the phantom woman who
haunts us both?

Blurb
Nate Reynolds is everything I shouldn’t want. Aside from being my best friend’s older brother, he’s a cocky, smooth-talking, panty-dropping playboy of a cop. And yet, I’m helplessly drawn to him.

His charm and good looks reduce me to a fumbling, mumbling teenaged version of myself, which pretty much guarantees that nothing will ever come of my silly crush.

Until the night of my best friend’s wedding.

Jenny Jones is the definition of innocence. She’s also my little sister’s best friend, making her

completely off limits. She’s a forever kind of girl with hearts in her eyes, where I’ve always been more of a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy.

Until a night spent between the sheets with her has me questioning everything I thought I wanted.

I tried my hardest to stay away, but you know what they say about the best intentions …

 

 

Excerpt
With the very tips of my fingers, I drag them down her arm to her elbow. I wrap my hand around her and pull her impossibly closer. Her head nestles against my chest as we sway to the music.

I keep her on the dance floor for at least four songs, unwilling to let her go. Thank God, they were all slow, because I don’t think I’m ready to really feel her move. Even now, with us merely rocking back and forth, her body feels so damn good pressed up against mine—and don’t even get me started on the way she occasionally presses her nails into my chest.

On song five, my luck runs out. The bass thumps low as she spins and presses her back into my front. Jenny may struggle to talk around me, but her body is saying all the things her words don’t. She swivels her hips as the tempo climbs, and the semi I’ve been sporting is in real danger of rivaling the damn tent the reception is being held in.

Seemingly unaware of my mental—and physical—struggle, Jenny keeps right on grinding her ass into me. Deciding to go with it, I palm her hips and move with her. My rhythm isn’t quite as good as hers, but we’re in sync enough for me to know we would be on-fucking-fire if we were doing this dance between the sheets instead.

Right, because that’s what I need to be thinking about right now.

Amazon | Apple Books

Exclusive Excerpt:

His lips widened in a harsh smile. “The truth is that you are a woman, something precious, something they must protect. It’s engrained in them, burned into them irrevocably from the day of their birth. Their honor dictates they keep you safe, and every second you are in my hands, they are failing you, failing themselves. With every second that passes the shame of their failure eats away at their honor. As Made Men we live on honor and pride. They are the pillars of our world, of our fucking self, and I’m going to tear them down pillar by pillar until every fucking member of the Outfit is crushed beneath the weight of their fucking guilt.”

My breath had lodged itself in my throat, and I could do nothing but stare at the man in front of me. Maybe he’d underestimated me, but I—and I feared even the Outfit—had underestimated Remo Falcone as well. His actions spoke of barely restrained violence and led you to believe that he lacked any sliver of control, that he could be driven into rash acts. But Remo was dangerously intelligent. A ruthless man with the power and wit to get his revenge.

“Maybe they will feel guilty, but they won’t waver. They won’t risk any part of the Outfit for me. Not for the soundness of my body, not for my life, and least of all for my innocence, Remo. So take either or all. You won’t weaken Dante or the Outfit.”

Remo’s thumb stroked the side of my throat. I wasn’t sure if he did it on purpose or without noticing, and it wasn’t the touch but the look in his eyes that made me shiver.

“They will protect your innocence at any cost because it’s the only pure thing in their fucking lives. They think your innocence could wash away their sins, but they breathe sin. We all do.”
