Book Tour and Giveaway: The Congressman's Wife by Arie Pavlou and Charlene Keel

All Eden Bancroft has ever been to her high-profile politician husband is a trophy wife, born and bred for the part. She believes she has no choice but to play it—until she meets a talented chef and restaurant heir who makes her feel loved for herself alone. The more her husband uses and belittles her, the more deeply Eden falls for Kaleb. Even with Mitchell’s congressional campaign in full swing, the lovers manage to find brief stolen moments together. When her husband is wounded by a bullet from a disgruntled lobbyist, Eden must stay by his side. What she learns can set her free, if she has the courage to take a stand.


Kaleb had been standing close enough to hear it all—not that he’d intended to eavesdrop.  He only wanted to try and give her some kind of signal—to beg, if necessary—to get a moment alone with her.  When he heard her husband’s caustic words, Kaleb wanted to punch him.  He wanted to take Eden’s hand and lead her out of there, away from the complete jackass her husband seemed to be.

Instead, he followed her into the room where coats were checked for the evening.  The maid who’d taken them was nowhere about, and Eden was digging through the racks when Kaleb walked in.  She looked up, surprised.

“We need to talk about it,” he said.

“About what?”  She found her wrap and Mitchell’s Brooks Brothers overcoat, draped them over one arm and turned to face him.

“About this thing between us.”

“That’s not very original.”

“I feel it and I know you feel it.”

“Look, I’m very flattered,” she began but he cut her off.

“We don’t have much time.”  He moved closer, aching to touch her.  “Your husband will come looking for you any minute.  Just tell me when and where I can see you again.  Alone.”

“You can’t,” she said.  “My husband is running for congress.  It’s . . . it would be impossible.”

“No,” he insisted.  “I don’t know why we met or how we’re going to pull this off but I do know one thing.”  He was speaking so softly now that she had to move closer to hear him.

“What?” she asked, her lips just inches from his own.  They were of equal height and he could see how well, how perfectly, they would fit together.

“I won’t give up.  I want to make love to you.”

“At least once?” she countered.

He moved closer still.  “Once will never be enough for us.  You know that, too.”

She sighed, lightly, and her sweet breath lingered on his cheek for a moment before she moved away and broke the spell.

“My husband is waiting for me,” she said.  “You’re a little crazy, you know?  You need to forget about this.  I’m married.  I have kids.  I don’t have time for an affair.”

“Have lunch with me.”

“Sorry—too busy.”

“Just let me talk to you.  Give me two hours—maybe over the weekend.  Then if you never want to hear from me again, that’ll be it.  I swear.”

She didn’t say anything for a moment, as if she was considering it.  “As intriguing as that sounds, I’m afraid it’s impossible.  I’m going to the season opening at the Village Resort up in Hunter this weekend, with my best friend.”

“Your husband going too?” Kaleb persisted.

“No.  He has a previous engagement.  Not that it’s any of your business.”

He opened his mouth to answer but Mitchell’s voice rang out in the foyer.  “Edie—let’s go.  Where are you?”

She flashed Kaleb a warning look and called out softly, “Coming, Mitchell.”  Then she left, quickly, before her husband could see Kaleb standing in the shadows.

Book Spotlight: #99c Lion for Convenience by Lyra Valentine

Hazel, one half of the Medina lioness twins, is adjusting to life outside of the hunters' grasp. That is, until she receives a desperate message from her sister Rowan, still held captive by the group known as the Protectors. Rowan will be freed, but only if Hazel passes along information on the comings and goings of the Medina pride. 

When Hazel makes the call home, she learns her parents can't stomach the idea of their daughter reentering high society with a fatherless child on her hip. She'll be welcomed home and have her child provided for, but only if she brings a father to her son with her. 

Enter Cenek Cipris, warlock extraordinaire. Cenek has it bad for the lioness he rescued from some real nasty monsters, and would do anything to help the raven-haired beauty. Tall and dark, with an even darker past and a quick temper, he jumps at the chance to atone for his crimes and put himself closer to the curvy temptress. 

Fiercely independent Hazel finds herself drawn to the irascible warlock, while her inner lioness desires nothing more than to mark the man as their mate. But Hazel can't be sure that he feels the same, or if he's just taking advantage of their pretend relationship. 

With hunters on her tail and betrayal in her bones, will Hazel risk her family, wealth, and security for the man who makes her want to do more than pretend?

Book Spotlight: #99c Queer Thoughts by Tabatha Austin

Looks can be deceiving, especially when you live in a world where vampires and werewolves roam. 

Jacob is unassuming by conventional standards. Long, lean and anything but threatening, no one would suspect he’s an expert at anything, least of all a trained monster killer. The voices in his head fight for his attention. His conscience, however, won’t allow their pleas to kill humans control him, but redirecting their wrath becomes even more prudent. 

His heart and soul are on the line. An innocent family is caught in the crosshairs. An Old West vampire with a penchant for men with a swimmer’s lean, sculpted body is making it increasingly difficult to concentrate.

Book Spotlight: #99c Slick Rider by Em Petrova

Physical therapy assistant Lilly’s job is to keep rodeo star Juss Rossie off his injured leg and from using his bad shoulder to rope more buckle bunnies. Trouble is she wants—just for once in her life—to be one of those rodeo gals who gets the cowboy. Pushing him to the limits of his therapy will take some creative maneuvering, and she finds he responds in the yummiest ways. 

Juss hates like hell to be laid up with injuries and off the back of a bull. But being at the mercy of therapist Lilly is torture—especially when she gets in the pool, on the mat, or crawls into bed with him. Can he recover from her mind-blowing advances without losing his heart? 


He lay there like a tanned god. Long, sooty lashes framed gorgeous chocolate-colored eyes that melted every woman in his vicinity. He always wore a goatee, but since coming here he’d trimmed it extra short. Probably because he’d injured the shoulder of his dominant hand—his left—and was forced to use his right.

Her heart squeezed at the sight of his lazy smile. “Glad to know

Book Spotlight: #99c The Good Bad Girl

Marcy the young grifter thinks nothing of fleecing lonely, older men with the false promise of letting them get between her thighs. They're jerks who deserve to be robbed. But her latest victim, the kindly widower Mr. Whitman, is different. And he makes her see things differently.


“It really wants to get inside you,” Mr. Whitman cajoled.
“Maybe the law can’t punish you,” Marcy replied, “but my folks can punish me.” She stopped scrubbing him long enough to jerk him off.
“They don’t have to…know.”
She started scrubbing him again. “My mom’s real suspicious. She checks me every time I come home. She’d know if I had a dick in me.”
“This isn’t fair. You’re not getting anything out of this. Let me at least use my tongue.”
“That would make me wet, and she’d know.”
“Then let’s get married. That’ll solve everything.”
In the two months she’d been visiting Mr. Whitman, this was the first time he’d said anything about wanting to marry her. This was the first time any of the men she’d been with had expressed a desire for anything other than pleasure from her. She expected to be a wife someday, but of someone close to her own age. She also expected to have kids. Mr. Whitman was already old enough be a grandpa.

Featured FREE Book: Bigger the Secrets: Greater the Passion by Laura Jane Hermanson

Laura Jane Hermanson’s “Bigger the Secrets” is such a tale of unbelievable love & loyalty plus secrets of narcissism that it spent over 400 hours on Amazon Kindle Scout’s Hot & Trending between May 11 & June 10, 2016. There are several reasons why:

1. The novel’s setting is beautiful San Diego’s beaches, Gaslamp District, SDSU, local military and more. A San Diego girl falls hard for a tall handsome and ridiculously rich business man. Ironically, murder binds them together. Journey with them as they explore deep secrets, great passion, thrills & suspense.

2. Although the novel is about a lead character from San Diego, early within the plot, the novel favorably casts a young intelligent rich black athlete who was racially profiled & murdered. His untimely & senseless death triggers every event of suspense & thrills, while at the same time, it inspires all contemporary romantic events which follows. Most insights of police brutality actually comes from a black man from MS. who has worked in law enforcement & who knows firsthand the racial tensions which are forever churning underneath the surface. Fact is, although my source has a BS in Criminal Justice, he has been racially profiled several times himself personally as well.

3. “Bigger the Secrets” is steeped in a heavy dose of good old fashion diversity. There’s a mother-in-law who hails from Northern China & a father-in-law who is a native son of France. Thus, the novel positively features such stories about the Great Wall, China’s fascinating silk & amazing places & food, etc., plus French business and fashion success too.

4. The novel was deliberately written with an extra heavy dose of suspense, this is a provocative contemporary romance novel which is designed to entertain an open-minded and forward thinking audience just like all other books on the market within its genre.  However, unlike all the other books out there, “Bigger the Secrets” is designed to attract and hold the attention of both women and men alike.

5. It was written with the concept in mind that this will be a literary work for women to share with men and not have the poor guys feel like jamming their fingers into their ears so deeply that the fingers on their right hand reach all the way through and makes contact with the fingers on their left hand, (LOL).  All kidding aside, I made this a guy friendly book while being especially careful not to alienate the extremely important ladies audience because after all, ladies are the bread & butter. As such, I loaded this novel with the following assortment of hot topics: sexology and voyeurism, desires of a super model and rich men, drama and unthinkable mysteries.

  If you listen closely to the tea leaves within your soul, you should be able to hear your subconscious voice telling you that, if anything at all, this novel feels somewhat like a cross between the classical works of the following genres: First of all, Louis L’Amour, because he inspired me to write fiction that is full of action and adventure. Secondly, E.L. James, because she inspired me to be bold, open, and honest enough to include contemporary sexual content within my writings, & yet, I purposely steered clear of the Fifty Shades of Grey formula. Third, Stephen King, because he inspired me to think, what-if? Therefore, during and after your reading of “Bigger the Secrets” you will find the novel to be filled with action, adventure, boldness, openness, honesty, what-ifs, and--oh of course--great romance too.For mature audiences only.

Book Spotlight: #99c Toeing the Line by Allyson Lindt

This is the full set of the 3-part serial, Toeing the Line. These are the same stories that appear in the individual books, compiled into a single volume.

Featured FREE Book: Granny McGee Gets in the Groove by Kerry Killeen

Ginny McGee had reached 60. Her reaction to this milestone was “is that it?” She had done the right thing all her life. She had the requisite 2 children and 5 grandchildren. They lived far away now, but they emailed and Skyped her often. She had lost her husband 2 years ago (careless of her, I know, but he was older). To be honest, she didn’t really miss him. The spark had gone a long time ago. She didn’t think there had been affairs, there certainly hadn’t been on her side, but they had drifted apart. They lived comfortable, amicable, boring lives. Sex had continued in a perfunctory way, until about 5 years ago when it stopped altogether. She didn’t really miss it. Sex with Brian had been routine and unimaginative even when they were younger. Was she now ready to settle into a life of tennis and bridge and emptiness? There didn’t seem much alternative. 
Ginny’s best friend Kelly could see the signs. She bought the two of them a week at a resort in Hawaii, and insisted that they go off for a girl’s escape. Swimming, sunbathing, pampering, cocktails, wine, what could be better? Ginny was touched. After the ritual protestations that Kelly shouldn’t have spent so much, she accepted gratefully. The excitement was rising as the departure date approached. Until two days before when Kelly came down with chicken pox. 
“Go!” insisted Kelly. “It won’t be the same, but you can still have a good time by yourself. But you have to tell me all about it, so I can feel part of it too.” 
Ginny goes, and begins to relax. Then she finds a man ogling her at the pool! First she is shocked, then embarrassed, then intrigued. With Kelly egging her on, she decides to find out what would happen if she gave him some encouragement. She discovers a passion that she had never felt before. And she tells Kelly about it in great detail.

Blog Tour and Giveaway: A Gentleman and a Rogue by Stephanie Burkhart

Lady Keira Russell is destined to bring compressed natural gas to Britain. Her inner courage and mental toughness rarely falter – except when Prince Edmund Windsor is involved. 

Edmund of Wales is from the future. His last jaunt through history muffed up the time line. Now, he's here to set it straight and win Keira's heart. 

For Keira, if it isn't one obstacle, it's another. Queen Victoria has sponsored a competition to find a cleaner fuel source than coal. Keira's father is trying to build a windmill and the Ridgecrofts are working with gasoline. Then there's Edmund, whose sensual kisses and heated stares distract her down to her bones. 

Keira has a choice: trust Edmund's notorious mischief-making or put her faith in Queen Victoria to make the right decision, but if Keira makes the wrong choice, the future of Great Britain will be changed forever.

Also available from:


Rex appeared in the doorway, stoic as ever, with a tray of food. He placed the tray on a nearby table. "The Windsors are here to see you." 

Keira jumped to her feet. Her heart accelerated in her chest. Alice and Edmund! Heaven help her. She needed to shore up her willpower when it came to Edmund. Setting her shoulders, she followed Rex down the hall to the vestibule located just off the main entrance. 

Alice stood in a simple blue muslin dress and fussed with her reticule. She always did her best to dress for comfort. Edmund wore a brown vest over a white shirt and pressed trousers. His frock coat hung over his arm. 

"Keira!" Alice rushed forward and wrapped her into a warm embrace. Keira returned Alice's strong hug with one of her own, realizing she'd missed Alice more than she thought she would. 

Edmund cleared his throat.

Keira glanced up. "Hello, Ed."

His eyes smoldered with desire. "Keira."

Oh, his red, pouty lips were like chocolate -- tempting her to take another bite. She looked at Rex. "Can you bring appetizers and coffee to my study?"

 He arched an eyebrow. "Coffee, My Lady?"

"Yes, coffee."

A little snort escaped his lips, but he departed.

Featured FREE Book: The Pleasures. Book One: Her Secret Submission by Alice Wright

Just a few moments earlier she had listened as Sir got dressed. She had never been blindfolded before. The thought of sensory deprivation always made her uneasy. Her balance was bad enough without taking her most reliable sense out of the equation and even if she were to stay laying down the entire time she still had never trusted anyone enough to let them blindfold her. 

Even as a child she hated playing games where she would have to keep her eyes closed. She always peeked. So it surprised her how much she had enjoyed being blindfolded by Sir. Being robbed of her sight seemed to make her other senses much more keen. Sounds and smells were clear and sharp. And trying to guess where he would touch her next was beyond exciting. It drove her wild. Each time he stopped touching her and walked around the room mysteriously she anticipated where she would feel him next. It might be something sweet and slow like the warmth of his breath near her hips… Or it may be something sharp and short; the sting of his palm against her behind. At it seemed that whatever it was she was anticipating, the opposite would happen. 

Before he left she’d listened to every move he made, picturing it all behind the soft satin of the blindfold. She’d heard the rustle of fabric. The zip of his jeans. His belt being buckled. The clip of his watch being fastened to his wrist. She’d listened as he gathered his belongings - saying not a single word to her - and strode heavily toward the door. She followed each step he made through sound alone; the tiny crunch of short pile carpet and the gentlest tremble of the floorboards beneath it. Then the short metal thud as he unlocked the door and the gentle whine of opening. Before he left he’d called over to her. 

“Say thank you, slave.” 
“Thank you, Sir.” 

Book Spotlight: #99c HIM - A Step Brother Romance by Stephanie Brother


Everyone has a teenage crush. 
You know, the hot celeb that you and your friends gush about! 
Never in million years do you actually expect to meet your crush in real life. 
But I did. 
And he became my new step brother. 
He’s the hottest guy I’ve ever seen, with sea foam green eyes that stop strangers on the street and a rock hard body that rivals Chris Hemsworth. Yeah, that hot! 
And he’s from one of the wealthiest families in America. 
But none of that means a thing because I hate him for what he and his stupid friends did to me years ago. It was what made me plead to go away to boarding school and then to graduate school in South Africa. 

As much as I want to stay in hiding, I can’t because I have to go back to the Hamptons and face him at the funeral. 
The man I’m doomed to see plastered on every gossip magazine and billboard. The man wanted by every woman alive because he’s so f*cking sexy. 

But not me. 

I won’t fall for a man like him. 


Never again. 

Not even him. 

No matter what the sight of his gorgeous body does to my insides. 


I melted into him. I gelled into him. Every bit of sensation, every bit of pleasure, was literally wrapped up around him and I was his. It was a pleasure bomb going off, a tsunami of large waves ready to consume everything in its sight.
It was such an intense moment between us. The look in our eyes spoke a new language downloading its message in our hearts. Our souls decoded the deeper meaning. It was a newfound level of connection as we held each other tighter. He wrapped my legs around him harder. Our kisses drank each other in.
There was no other way to explain this passion; it was the connection of love.
I loved him. I freaking loved him. I knew it. But I couldn’t say anything. Not at all. 
“Take me, Bradley. I…I’m…” I didn’t want to say anything else and I let my lips do the talking as our hot kisses spoke such a language, a special language, that only our hearts and our sexes could do the decoding.
We fit together like a glove. Like a perfect glove. And I didn’t want to let go.

Book Spotlight: What's Left Of Me by Jennifer Loring

Recovering from years of living the superstar hockey life wasn’t easy, but now Aleksandr Volynsky finally has everything… 

He’s married to the love of his life, expecting a daughter, and has a new job as an assistant coach with his old team, the Buffalo Gladiators. His happiness is short lived, however, when a sexual assault allegation surfaces, and Alex is forced to cooperate with an investigation for a crime he didn’t commit. 

Stephanie Hartwell is juggling her dream job with marriage and motherhood, but she’s not convinced she’s doing any of it well… 

Stephanie’s stress level goes from bad to worse when she’s diagnosed with a serious illness. Battling declining health and the critics who question her commitment to Alex in light of the allegation, she makes a decision that could change their relationship forever. 

Alex is afraid he’s about to lose everything—especially when he sees Stephanie’s friend kiss her… 

Devastated that his life is spiraling out of control again, Alex turns to his friend, Natasha, a Russian pop star. Convinced that Stephanie and her friend Brandon are having an affair, Alex resumes his self-destructive behavior. 

What Alex doesn’t know is Stephanie has been conducting a secret investigation of her own. She learns the truth behind the sexual assault—a truth no one, especially Alex, expects. 

With everything now out in the open, can Stephanie and Alex commit to a fresh start for the sake of their daughter, or will the ghosts of their pasts finally tear apart everything they have left?
