Book Spotlight: #99c Bear With Me: A BBW Billionaire Shifter Romance by Terra Wolf




When his world fell apart, everything came together... 

Billionaire bear shifter Chase Hammer is on the verge of losing it all. As his company's stocks plummet in a post-recession New York City, Chase's primal side fights to emerge. The more stress the concrete jungle breeds, the more urgent his bear's needs seem. In a last ditch effort to relieve stress, get his head on straight, and steer his company back in the right direction, Chase takes a spontaneous trip to his late parents' stomping grounds in the sanctity of Appalachia. 

Curvy and quick-witted Carolina beauty Andrea Sloan lives in the small mountain town of Boone. With long days consisting of hiking trips and exploring along the Blue Ridge Parkway, Andrea has found true contentment in the mountain air. That contentment, however, breeds boredom and a need for adventure beyond what a simple mountain life can provide. So when a stranger from New York, dressed in designer clothes and wielding an air of mystery about him shows up in Boone just in time to rescue her from certain death, she can't help but be intrigued. 

Can this fast blossoming love, supported by primal needs they never knew existed, meld two completely different worlds together? Or will forces beyond their control shatter everything they've come to hold dear?

Book Spotlight: Diary: From the Outside Looking In by Brandon Harper #99c



Diary: From the Outside Looking In... The heart that Understands is an insightful guide with a hard hitting edgy message that gives couples and singles an overview and outlook on situations. As it relates to the topics of life, love, sex and relationships. When you are on the outside looking in, a true heart pays attention to what goes on and understands the reality that life brings. The happiness, the joy, the sadness and pain, the complications, discovering self worth, powerful romance and the sexually charged encounters. Everything that looks good or seems like it's swell isn't always as it may appear to be. The heart that Understands tackles various subjects and gives an in depth look on life, love and sex on different levels by being honest and straight forward in hopes of getting people to see what really goes on inside of people's hearts and minds. 

Excerpt

What is the definition of a cheater? This is the question many of us ask quite often in order to gain some form of clarity and understanding as to why the ones that we love and care for would ever hurt us this way. Now to my knowledge, a cheater is someone that partakes in sexual activity with another person or person(s) regardless if it's knowingly or unknowingly. Being cheated on has got to possibly be one of the top worst feelings in the world because when it happens at a person's expense, that shit hurts. It cuts like a knife being carved into our hearts. It stings painfully and above all, it messes with you mentally. Remember, we are all human and have feelings. No matter how hard we try to forget, we never will because the thought of knowing that someone did it to us hurts. It's a form of trickery that men and women use to their advantage for selfish reasons. A lot of the time, most know when they're cheating and know that it's wrong, but they just don't give a fuck. Then, you have the very few that are cheating but really don't even realize that they are.

Book Spotlight: Esther's Excitement: Virgin Concubine, Or Future Queen? by B. Apple



The Bible is full of sins and sinners, but few stories are more lustful than the untold story of Esther. The unfathomably powerful King Xerxes has set aside his last wife and is gathering up beautiful young virgins for his personal pleasure. Will Esther rise above them all to become queen, or will she merely be another concubine? 

Excerpt

This is what happened - the true story, as near as I can tell.

The queen had dared to disobey him once, and only once - and that once cost her everything. By the time those of us in the general population of the kingdom heard reports, it wasn’t the news of merriment from King Xerxe’s seven-day day banquet that we expected; it was a decree stating that the king was no longer a married man, that Queen Vashti was no longer queen but merely Vashti. She was publicly shamed and humiliated as the decree read aloud in every corner of the kingdom gave the king’s reason for shutting Vashti out of the palace: her disobedience. He had summoned her to come show herself to his (mostly drunken) guests, and she had her handmaidens decline for her. 

That is how it is. A man can ruin a woman’s life for one small refusal to bow to his wish. That’s the same outside of the palace as it is inside. The difference is, most women don’t suffer the shattering blow of going from being the most celebrated woman in the kingdom, the wealthiest, most petted, most beloved woman alive, to being a woman with nothing and no one. A woman no other man will ever touch because she is a woman who raised the ire of the most powerful man in existence. A woman who never even got to plead her own case with the man she had married before he sent messengers to announce that she would never see him again at all.

Now that I’m the one walking over marble floors to meet the king for the first time, Vashti is all I can think about. She was said to have been very beautiful, before it was criminal to speak of her so. She was said to be young and pleasant. She was from a wealthy family, who probably since disowned her out of respect for the king’s decree. She was more than I could ever hope to be. 

And now, I am here for one night in a parade of women that has lasted for nearly two years. The most beautiful virgins in the kingdom have all been summoned to come and spend a year purifying themselves for one night of his pleasure, never to see him again if he doesn’t take the trouble to specifically request the pleasure of their company again. We all have to stay in his harem! None of us have free choice in this. We’re separated from the harem women until after our one night with the king, so there is no woman that can advise us based on experience - by the time we might see them, our night is over, and we are separated from the girls who remain virgins… for now. Tomorrow, I will be in the same part of the harem as the other women ruined by this man’s desire, less desirable to every man in the 127 provinces between India and Cush, because I am no longer a virgin.

Book Spotlight: Dragon's Guide to Slaying Virgins by Isabelle Saint-Michael




Morgan had resigned herself to death. She had been ready to follow her true love into the afterlife, if only a certain Dragon hadn’t “rescued” her. She wasn’t grateful – after all, she was a full-fledged Lady Knight and perfectly capable of making her own decisions, without the help of arrogant Dragon Lords, no matter how good-looking everyone seemed to think they were… 

After dragging Lady Morgan from a Troll’s lair and dropping her off in another realm, Vallen thought he’d never see her again. But then an old member of his Knight Order betrays her oaths and begins amassing an army of thugs and highwaymen - in the same realm he’d left Morgan. 

Racing back with only his brother for a squire, Vallen finds Lady Morgan, accompanied by a teenage Werewolf, ready to take on this Dragon all by herself. But it will take all of them to defeat her, and little do they know that in this battle, the secrets of their broken hearts will rise up from the past and walk again… 

EXCERPT

“And like you, I lost the love of my life.” He reached up and absently stroked my hair down my back.
“Does it get easier and hurt less with time?” I asked.
“Yes, but it can take a very long time.” I closed my eyes at his words. I could picture Simon’s smiling face, his red hair falling free of its pony tail so that strands fell in his face. His eyes were so dark they were almost black, but they sparkled so when he smiled. A tear ran down my cheek. Vallen moved his hand and reached up to wipe it away. “I promise there will be justice for what Avery has done to you.”
I tried to smile, knowing he meant it. Right now, though, I didn’t want to think about Avery. “Thank you,” I whispered.
There was a knock on the door and then Young opened it without waiting for any word from us. He took one look at the two of us wrapped in each other’s arms and blushed clear through his scalp. He averted his gaze and walked close enough to set the clothes down on the chair. “I’m sorry, I didn’t expect… You and the Lady… and I’m leaving.” He grabbed the tray and disappeared back out the door before we could correct his misconception.
Vallen growled and lowered his arms from around me. “I’m sorry. He has the wrong idea and it’s my fault.  I’ll go find him and explain.” He shifted and winced.
“Wait. You shouldn’t be up yet. I can go,” I offered.
He shook his head. “This is my fault.” With a deep breath he pushed himself out of bed and groaned in pain.
Without meaning to I raked my eyes over him. Every inch of his body was covered in thick muscle. He wasn’t bulging, but just looking at him you knew he was powerful. His body was covered in scars and bandages that told the tales of a life lived in the service of others. His dark hair had blue streaks in it, reminding me of a Fairy. His backside was like no backside I had ever seen in person. It looked like it should be made of stone and attached to a statue in Queen Mab’s palace. He turned, giving me full view of his manhood. I had always heard they grew when excited, but with his there in plain view I couldn’t imagine it growing larger, as it was already more than I would have ever known what to do with. He cleared his throat and my eyes flew up to meet his gaze. “My Lady, I believe my eyes are up here.”
I blushed and tugged the blankets over my head, wanting in that very moment to die after being caught staring. He must have finished dressing because I heard him cross the room, followed by the sounds of the door opening and closing. Only after my breathing had returned to normal did I push the blankets off of my head and struggle to the side of the bed.



Book Spotlight and First Chapter: Breathless: In Love With An Alpha Billionaire by Shani Greene-Dowdell



Chapter 1

Jacob

After the Love is Gone

When I walked into the setting room the morning after the dinner, the air of bitterness was all around Mom. One by one, she was snapping at the maid, hollering at the cook and was about to tell the gardener to redo the entire flower garden. Mom was taking no prisoners as she popped off one order after the next.
“Mickey, I don’t know what you were thinking when you planted my rose bushes so close to the road. I want you to go out there and take every last one of them up and make sure you redo the grass surrounding them too. Do not make my lawn look like a mess! Do you hear me?” Mom said.
“But Ma’am, you’re the one who told me…” Mickey started to say in his defense.
“Do you hear me?” Mom screamed, shutting him up before turning to Greta. “And Greta…”
“Greta, Mickey, it’s been a rough morning for Mom. You two can go back to your regular duties and we’ll let you know if we need any other special duties done today.”
“Yes Sir,” Greta and Mickey said in unison as they began to slowly walk out of the room.
“Thanks for all you do,” I said with a forced smile, before turning my attention to Mom.
“You have no right to interrupt me! I am the head of this house and I know how I want things done,” Mom ranted.
“Yeah, but there is no reason for you to talk to Mickey like that and Greta hasn’t done anything to deserve your wrath either.”
“If they want to keep their little jobs, they will do what I say and, I mean, when the hell I say it, Jacob.” Mom stormed toward the doorway and screamed Greta’s name. “Greta, get back in here now!”
Greta hadn’t made it completely out of sight, so she stopped in her tracks and looked back at me. I waved her on and she sped off toward the kitchen and dashed around the corner.
“Greta! If you don’t get back in here this instance.”
“Stop it, Mom. You are taking your anger out on the wrong people.”
“No, I’m not. You should see the dust I found on the baseboard behind the sofa, and she knows I have bad allergies! Get back in here Greta!” she said before turning her nose up in the air with distaste.
“And you moved the sofa to look for dust, because…”
“I am not upset with your father, if that’s what you’re thinking. He just has some misguided thoughts and feelings right now, but don’t be mistaken. I have your father wrapped around my finger,” she said motioning to her diamond covered ring finger. “Now like I was saying, what I’m upset about is that we pay our help so much and they can’t do something as simple as laying a flower bed or dusting.”
“Sure,” I said as I sat down on the sofa and picked up a magazine. I haphazardly browsed the magazine while Mom continued to rant. 
“Jacob, I want you to know that I’m unbothered by anything those people came in here to do last night.”
“That’s the problem,” I said placing the magazine back on the table. “You should be bothered. The thoughts and feelings you’re unbothered by are serious to me and Dad. If there is any chance for you to salvage relationships with your son and husband, you’re going to have to understand those facts.”
“Jacob, you do not know what you’re talking about!” Mom yelled with venom spewing from her eyes.
“Mom, calm down and talk to me. Right now, I’m actually on your side when it comes to saving your marriage. The last thing I want to see is my parents divorced.”
“Fine. You want to know how I really feel about last night?”
“Along other things, I do want to know how you feel about last night.”
“I feel like it’s your fault for bringing those people into our home and upsetting our family. Of all the black people in this highly populated world, how could you go out and handpick Clara’s daughter?”
Those people did not upset our family. The major issues have been lying dormant for years. If anything, Clara coming back into the picture only shined a light on what was already wrong. For instance, before you even knew Ms. Clara was coming to dinner, you had already planned to disrespect my fiancĂ© by inviting Justine.”Mom huffed and turned her back on me. “But, if it makes you feel any better, I didn’t know about Dad and Clara’s history. I found out the same time you did,” I said, with the full understanding that I didn’t owe her any type of explanation after what she did to me and Destiny.  
“Well, that makes me feel a whole heap better,” she said sarcastically, before turning back to face me. 
“Mom, I’m marrying Destiny and she will be a part of this family. In order for it to work, you have to show some damn respect. Your attitude toward her is getting old.”
“You don’t even understand what you’ve done,” she said, throwing her hands in the air and hitting them hard against her legs when they came down. “Your father slept in the guestroom last night. He’s pining over a forty-year-old love affair. You brought the woman it took me years to extract from his heart into our home. You don’t know how he used to call out for her in his sleep. Do you know what it took for him to get her out of his system? Do you know how many times I’ve caught him looking at her old pictures, Jacob?To this day, he has an album labeled Wellmington memories.”
“Mom listen.”
“And now, at sixty five years old, I had to watch him stand in front of her acting like he never knew my name. Like he’s twenty again. And you seem to think we’ll just get through this?”
I listened to my mother and couldn’t help but feel torn. On the one hand, after years of idle stability, my parent’s marriage was in a rocky place. On the other hand, she had some nerve to look to me for sympathy after her blatant disregard for my relationship.
At that moment, I hated that my mother didn’t like Destiny. That my father had a past with Ms. Clara. That Ms. Clara slapped my father in front of everyone. That Justine was at the dinner. That Justine’s actions caused a rift in my relationship with Destiny, which left the back door open for Montie to slide in. But most of all, I didn’t like that Mom was hurting.
Watching Mom’s tears fall counterbalanced my reluctant acceptance of Dad’s feelings for Clara, the woman he claimed was his one true love. Thinking back, I watched Dad spend countless amounts of emotional energy trying to please Mom in one way or another. He would wine and dine her, buy her special gifts. He catered to her every want and need, as far as my youthful eyes could see. However, she would only reward him with an artful smile, a kiss, or more requests for things she wanted.
Sometimes, I would see him look at her as she rambled on about new items she purchased or planned to purchase and I would see an empty expression behind his eyes…a longing. Mom didn’t even notice the longing. She just navigated through, making her best effort at becoming the perfect high-class housewife.
What I knew for sure, as I sat and listened to Mom ramble on about Ms. Clara being at the dinner, was that my father longed for the moment he shared with Ms. Clara. He appreciated holding her in his arms as much as his next breath. As a man who went from a relationship of convenience with Justine into a whirlwind romance with Destiny, I understood my father’s position.
Nevertheless, Mom had one thing over Ms. Clara though and that was forty years of matrimony. I just hoped she managed to pull herself together fast enough to express genuine love, before all was lost.
“Mom, I need you to listen to me and listen to me very closely. Do you hear me? Very closely,” I said as I pat a place on the sofa for her to sit next to me.
She sighed as she relented. When she sat down next to me, I leaned toward her and engaged her as intimately and caring as I could as her son. She looked at me willfully, and I hoped the layers of her nasty, high-society attitude would peel back as I spoke. I needed to get to the core of the woman who had meager beginnings in a small town in Alabama before moving to Miami, when her father got a job promotion.
“I’m listening,” she said, nudging me to continue.
“For me, I demand that you set aside any and all ill-feelings you have for Destiny. That will be necessary for us to have any semblance of a relationship in the years to come. For Dad, you need to figure out a way to get inside his heart again. Make him remember why he chose to marry you. Because what I saw last night was not a man who was intruded upon by unwanted guests.”
I stopped right there. I dared to tell Mom I saw love, compassion and hope in my father’s eyes. A look that let me know for a fact he never stopped loving Ms. Clara one minute. I was sure Mom saw it too. I couldn’t remember a time when he looked at her that way.
Mom considered what I was saying and dropped her hands to her side. “Jacob, there are a lot of things you don’t understand about me and your father. We may not have had a fiery romance, but we’ve grown old together. We will be just fine.”
“I wouldn’t be so sure about us, Tammy,” Dad said as he walked into the room.
“Johnny?” Mom said jumping to her feet.
“You can sit back down, Tammy. You’ve done enough jumping around and having your say,” Dad said.
“I will do no such thing,” Mom said in defiance.
“Sit down, Tammy!” Dad’s voice boomed through the room. 
Mom’s back was as straight as a board and her face was as red as a beet as she glared at my father. However, under his harsh tone Mom’s body inched down onto the sofa to sit as she was told.“I’m sitting down, now what is this foolishness you’re saying? What do you mean you wouldn’t be so sure of us?”
“Son, would you excuse us. We need to talk for a minute.”
“Sure,” I said standing to leave. “Mom and I were just finishing up our conversation about last night. We’ll talk about it more later,” I said to Mom who twirled her head in the opposite direction.
“I’m going to get to the bottom of everything that happened yesterday. You can believe that,” Dad said, giving me a nod.
“Alright, well, I’ll see you later,” I said including both my parents in my gaze.
Dad nodded as I left out the door, while Mom ignored me. From the way she was acting, I knew she would never change. Left to her own devices, she would essentially put the last nail in her own coffin. Therefore, I told myself I would be at peace with whatever they decided to do.

Book Spotlight: #FREE Seduced by the Shifters by Mia P. Mallone



“We will not hurt you,” Aiden promised, his voice hoarse. Richard swayed forward with a whine, but Aiden stopped him with a firm grip on his arm. “We won’t,” he repeated, as if convincing himself. 

Betty Chadwick is an intelligent, curvy, and dedicated student, but life has forced her to make sacrifices. Trapped in a trailer, taking care of her ailing but abusive stepfather, each and every day, she struggles to come up with enough money to pay the bills and her tuition. When a potentially disastrous expense arises, she knows she needs to make a change. Then, a chance encounter with a dead-sexy man looking for an assistant challenges everything she knows to be true and ever wanted from a man. 

But when she arrives for the interview, Betty gets even more than she bargained for. Not only does Mr. Aiden Pierce have a boyfriend, but he also leads a lavish lifestyle and holds a dangerous secret. 

Aiden and his boyfriend, Richard Barnes, are partners in both business and life, handsome lovers whose secret causes them to lead lonely lives. Betty stumbles into their lives (and their bed) and brings about a dramatic change, along with a temptation their inner beasts cannot ignore for long. 

Their beastly secret is a treacherous one, but as it turns out, Aiden and Richard aren’t the only ones tempted. Betty has never had anyone appreciate her body like this before and is entranced by these two sexy men, who seem to find her irresistible. Just her scent is enough to set them off, and after that, there’s no going back. Even when things take a turn for the supernatural, she cannot make herself leave. Will she be able to escape the wild, erotic night unscathed? 

Excerpt

“How did it get so late?” she said, glancing down at her phone to see it was nearly eight. Aiden stiffened beside her as he caught sight of the time, and she looked up to see him catch Richard’s eye. The tension in the room suddenly peaked as Richard all but fell off of his stool in his hurry to back away. Aiden was a bit more controlled, but he also stood and took a step back.

“You’re right, it’s late,” Aiden agreed, his voice tight. Betty watched in confusion as he clenched his fists at his sides. Had she said something wrong? He’d been so relaxed only a moment ago. “You should probably—”

“Go,” rasped Richard from behind her. She whirled around to see him leaning against the counter on the other side of the kitchen, gripping the counter for dear life. “Betty, please, you have to go.”

“Richard, are you sick?” she asked hesitantly. She could see sweat beading on his face and arms, and he looked as if he was barely holding himself together.

“He’s fine,” Aiden started, “he just—”

“Dammit, Aiden, get her out of here,” Richard growled — and it was a true growl, a primal, animal sound that raised goosebumps on Betty’s skin. She took a startled step back as he doubled nearly in two. She glanced over at Aiden, who was also starting to look affected; he was panting and gripping the back of the bar stool for support.

“I can’t,” Aiden ground out, “I’m—”

And that was all he got out before he let out a roar, a deep, bone chilling sound that resonated throughout the house and was echoed seconds later by Richard. Betty watched in silent horror as the two men contorted, as if bones were shifting under the surface of their skin. Within seconds, they grew impossibly taller, wider. Their clothes ripped and fell away as fur sprouted over their skin. Betty pressed a hand to her mouth to hold in her screams as she realized she was no longer standing before two men, but two very large bears. She took one step back, and two large heads swiveled around to look at her. Suddenly, all of the hunting trophies made more sense, and Betty had the terrifying mental image of her head joining the others on the wall.

Tina Borlenghi is a billionaire businesswoman, heiress to the Borlenghi fortune, and living la dolce vita. She's also a magnet for men who crave fame and celebrity. So while in New York City launching a new fashion boutique, Tina is more than intrigued when sports bar owner Luke Pederson mistakes her for a sales assistant. He's sexier than sin and only interested in her. What's the harm in a little steamy role-playing?

Luke can't get enough of Tina. And yet, something feels...off. Why is she so secretive? As their role-playing encounters become more erotic, Luke's suspicions grow. The woman rocking his world is hiding something. Something big. He's ready to play for keeps, but finding out who Tina really is may just turn the tables on everything he thought he knew about love.
