New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for OBSESSIVE ADDICTION by K.L. Donn!

Have you ever heard the sound of your life ending? A cell door slamming shut is the best way to describe it.

I killed a man. A bad man.
One who deserved far more than what I gave him.
He looked at her when she was mine.
He touched her when she was mine.
He broke her when she was mine.
I’m getting out on a technicality.

Now, I’ll get to make her mine.
She’ll cry my name each night instead of his.
She’ll feel my pleasure instead of his pain.

I am Crux Malcolm and it’s my turn to get what’s coming to me…
Farren Hallewell is my addiction and I’m obsessed.

Sneak Peek! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for HIS PROMISE by Shelley Shepard Gray!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray’s latest Christmas novel in her Amish of Hart County series.

It’s set to be a white Christmas in Hart County, and Grace King is pet-sitting in a beautiful home with only a difficult dachshund for company. Just as she starts to miss the bustle of her large Amish family, Grace runs into a familiar face. Living right next door is John Michael Miller. He’s a fireman now, but five years ago, he had courted her older sister, then broke her heart. Seeing him again stirs Grace’s anger, but also reminds her of deeper feelings she’s done her best to deny.

The infatuation John Michael once saw in Grace’s eyes is long gone, though his complicated attraction to her remains. He had walked away all those years ago when he realized he was falling in love with the wrong sister. Now, as suspicious fires are set in their community, that’s not an option. Grace dismisses his warnings, and John Michael vows to keep an eye on her. But he can’t help wondering if he’s reconnected with Grace, only to risk losing her again.

Now all John Michael wants for Christmas is to keep Grace safe, in the hopes that they can one day have a future together.

New Release! Check out CITY OF EVERDARK by Debbie Cassidy!

THE THIRD INSTALLMENT IN THE CHRONICLES OF ARCANA SERIES BY USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR DEBBIE CASSIDY.

Fate can’t hold all the cards, not if she doesn’t have any fingers.

Mission objective, to kick the dragon leige’s ass and take back what she’s stolen. Or maybe take back what she’s stolen, and then kick her ass? Either way, they’ll be some ass kicking.

Getting answers means recon and lies, coercion and revelations. It means jumping through several hoops, like infiltrating a maximum-security government quarantine facility to break out the inmates.

Wila will do whatever it takes to get her Kindred and her draconi prince back, even if it means venturing into a place of nightmares, a place of everdark and monsters with not a pot of tea in sight.

The darkness awaits, and Wila better hope it doesn’t swallow her whole.

A kick-ass Urban Fantasy with a slow burn reverse harem romance.  #WhyChoose

Cover Reveal! Check out the book cover for THE WARRIOR, Immortal Dealers #3 by Sarah Fine!

THE THIRD BOOK IN AN EXCITING NEW URBAN FANTASY SERIES BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR SARAH FINE.

For those who deal in the fate of the world, salvation and destruction is not a game of chance.

Ernestine “Ernie” Terwilliger never intended to live among the Immortal Dealers, much less to be party to an ongoing battle where the fate of humanity is in the draw of a card. And the stakes have gotten only higher now that a shady new Forger has been crowned.

Virginia may be in charge of creating the chaos that makes the universe tick, but her assignments have been noble—each one in the aid of strangers. But when Ernie discovers Virginia’s true purpose, she realizes it’s going to take an entirely new kind of play to stop her.

The game changer lies within a mysterious artifact dredged from the ocean. To unlock its powers, Ernie and her partner, Gabe, must traverse dangerous new realms and uncover the history of Forgers past. Joined in a tenuous alliance with a former enemy and stalked by old friends turned lethal foes, Ernie had better play her cards right—because this time, the whole universe could be destroyed in the shuffle.

But whenever I see her, with those wicked curves and soft mouth created for dirty deeds, it’s a knock-down fight to just maintain my distance. “Hard Knox” becomes more than just the name of my tattoo shop.

News! Publishers Weekly: Campaign to Promote Physical Bookstores Launched

ORIGINAL ARTICLE:  https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/bookselling/article/78186-campaign-to-promote-physical-bookstores-launched.html

A number of industry members have gotten together to form Love Your Bookstore, a campaign aimed to help draw attention to all physical bookstores as the holiday shopping season begins

“Bookstores are amazing and important places for us all culturally, and we know that booksellers help readers discover and share the magic of books,” said Dominique Raccah, publishers CEO of Sourcebooks and a member of the steering committee that created the campaign. “They create communities of readers that make a difference because books change lives. We want to give everyone a way to celebrate their favorite bookstore.”

Love Your Bookstore will debut on Saturday, November 10, and run through Friday, November 16. A key element of the initiative is the week-long Love Your Bookstore Challenge. The challenge encourages readers and authors to go into their local bookstore and take a picture of the book they are most excited to gift this holiday season or a book you love or want to receive.

Participants can then post their photos to Instagram or Twitter between November 10 and 16 with the hashtag #loveyourbookstore. Anyone who makes a post will be automatically entered to win book-related prizes. Readers and authors are also encouraged to challenge friends to join the campaign.

TIn addition to Raccah other members of the steering committee are of George Slowik Jr., President of Publishers Weekly; Becky Anderson, co-owner of Anderson’s Bookshops and past president of the American Booksellers Association; Carl Lennertz, executive director of the Children’s Book Council.

“Any grassroots campaign to promote reading and great books in such a positive, spontaneous way is balm for America’s soul during these times,” said Lennertz. “I truly hope this new campaign becomes a new annual tradition!”

The organizers have also set up a website, www.loveyourbookstore.com, which includes more information about the program as well as access to materials designed to promote the new campaign.

Editor’s note: This article has been updated to include other steering committee members.

News & Interview! EW.com: Romance author Robyn Carr on bringing her Virgin River series to life with Netflix

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: https://ew.com/books/2018/10/03/robyn-carr-virgin-river-netflix-interview/

Netflix is feeling the love.

The streaming platform announced last week that it’s making a push into Hallmark-style programming with straight-to-series orders for two romantic dramas based on popular book series: Robyn Carr’s Virgin River and Sherryl Woods’ Sweet Magnolias. Both series will get 10 episodes.

The pickups represent another instance of Hollywood turning to the romance genre as a rich space for potential properties to adapt. This past summer it was announced that Shonda Rhimes’ team is developing a series for Netflix based on Julia Quinn’s historical Bridgerton series, and just last month, romance-focused bookstore The Ripped Bodice announced an overall dealwith Sony Television.

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for KILL THE QUEEN by Jennifer Estep!

Gladiator meets Game of Thrones: a royal woman becomes a skilled warrior to destroy her murderous cousin, avenge her family, and save her kingdom in this first entry in a dazzling fantasy epic from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Elemental Assassin series—an enthralling tale that combines magic, murder, intrigue, adventure, and a hint of romance.

In a realm where one’s magical power determines one’s worth, Lady Everleigh’s lack of obvious ability relegates her to the shadows of the royal court of Bellona, a kingdom steeped in gladiator tradition. Seventeenth in line for the throne, Evie is nothing more than a ceremonial fixture, overlooked and mostly forgotten.

But dark forces are at work inside the palace. When her cousin Vasilia, the crown princess, assassinates her mother the queen and takes the throne by force, Evie is also attacked, along with the rest of the royal family. Luckily for Evie, her secret immunity to magic helps her escape the massacre.

Forced into hiding to survive, she falls in with a gladiator troupe. Though they use their talents to entertain and amuse the masses, the gladiators are actually highly trained warriors skilled in the art of war, especially Lucas Sullivan, a powerful magier with secrets of his own. Uncertain of her future—or if she even has one—Evie begins training with the troupe until she can decide her next move.

But as the bloodthirsty Vasilia exerts her power, pushing Bellona to the brink of war, Evie’s fate becomes clear: she must become a fearsome gladiator herself . . . and kill the queen.

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for THE FOREVER CHRISTMAS TREE by Sandra Hill!

The Christmas bells are chiming across the Outer Banks town of Bell Cove, North Carolina, but there’s one local ‘grinch’ who’s not listening . . .

He’s got bad-boy looks and a Bah Humbug attitude, so when the local paper asks the villagers to vote on the “Biggest Local Grinch” as a fund-raising project, Ethan Rutledge isn’t surprised to hear he’s made the ballot. He might own the local Christmas Tree Farm, but the holiday hasn’t been welcome in his home since Wendy Patterson left him heart-broken twelve years ago.

But now Wendy’s back, fresh from a tour of duty as a female Navy SEAL. She’s bold, beautiful, and has five Navy buddies trailing after her—as if she needs a bodyguard! And what’s all this about them wanting to start a treasure hunting company right here in Bell Cove’s failing bell factory? Then Wendy learns about how Ethan’s been nurturing the one thing he has to remember her by: a gorgeous Norway Spruce tree.

Can the magic of Christmas and the spirit of the town help rekindle the romance between two people who thought they’d left love behind years ago?

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for THE LADY IS DARING by Megan Frampton!

The duke’s five daughters have beauty, breeding, and impeccable reputations. Or at least, they did. Now that two have chosen to follow their hearts, can the others be far behind?

It was easy for society to overlook Lady Ida Howlett; they found her bookish, opinionated, and off the marriage mart. But little did they know that behind a calm exterior beats the heart of an adventuress, one who, determined to discover her runaway sister’s whereabouts, steals a carriage and sets off on a daring mission. Then she discovers she’s not alone! Bennett, Lord Carson, is inside, and he refuses to leave.

Lord Carson’s plans had always been to find a soft, gentle wife who would run his home and raise his children. Still, he makes a bargain with Ida—he won’t desert her during her mad adventure. He’ll make sure she’s safe, and then find a suitable lady to fall in love with. But when rules (and garments) become discarded during this long, intimate journey, it’s soon clear that this surprisingly daring lady is the woman he’s needed all along.

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for HOT WINTER NIGHTS by Jill Shalvis!

Who needs mistletoe?

Most people wouldn’t think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn’t most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she’s been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that—but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once . . .

Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don’t mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he’s shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly’s brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can’t believe he’s drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who’s the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he’s ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he’s been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.

Englishwoman Evelyn Worthington is resolved to build a school for ladies in her brother’s newly purchased Scottish castle. But when she arrives, not only does she find the castle scorched by fire, but a brawny Highlander bars her entry.

When the war between Evelyn and Grey escalates, passions flare. But outsiders have their own plans for Finlarig. After secrets are revealed, and muskets are lit, the fates of the Campbell Clan, the school, and a possible future for Grey and Evelyn are in as much jeopardy as their lives.

In USA Today bestseller Christi Barth’s last Bad Boys Gone Good novel, the brother who’s always followed the rules finally gets to be a little bad.

Kellan Maguire was a semester away from becoming a lawyer when his life imploded. Now he’s in Witness Protection, hiding from the mob and mad as hell that his brothers lied to him about, oh, everything. The only bright spot in his new life is their drop-dead-gorgeous U.S. Marshal handler. Yeah, he wants to handle her… a lot.

Federal Marshal Delaney Evans has protected her fair share of dangerous criminals. But Kellan is a whole different kind of dangerous—dangerously hot, to be specific. The charming, handsome, and utterly law-abiding Maguire brother got under her skin the moment they met and the more time she spends with him, the harder it is to deny their attraction. Delaney’s willing to give Kellan one night—to get him out of her system—and then it’s over.

Except one night isn’t enough and soon they’re breaking every rule of WITSEC to be together. Kellan’s got it bad for her, but Delaney’s career, her entire life, would fall apart if anyone found out. And then the biggest complication of all hits…

Leaving Shadow Creek nine years ago was the hardest thing Molly Mayberry’s ever had to do…except maybe returning. She’s never regretted her choice, but a chance of a lifetime position at the local hospital means going home and facing her past, including her shrew of an estranged mother and the fiancé she ran out on. Ben Matthews is still the sexy, sweet man she left behind…and apparently still her fiancé.

Ben has been doggedly pursuing the position of fire chief since he was a teenager. There’s just one problem—he has to show his boss he’s ready to settle down. No matter how silly the condition, Ben will make it happen. And apparently so will his brother when he opens his mouth and decides to tell everyone Ben and Molly are engaged. Now the one woman he never stopped loving is living with him in a fake relationship, driving him crazy. Pretending only reminds him how right they were once, but if Ben gives in to the heat building between them, heartache is sure to follow.

Each book in the Shadow Creek, Montana series is STANDALONE

Sneak Peek! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for A NOTORIOUS VOW by Joanna Shupe!

Joanna Shupe returns to New York City’s Gilded Age, where fortunes and reputations are gained and lost with ease—and love can blossom from the most unlikely charade.

With the fate of her disgraced family resting on her shoulders, Lady Christina Barclay has arrived in New York City from London to quickly secure a wealthy husband. But when her parents settle on an intolerable suitor, Christina turns to her reclusive neighbor, a darkly handsome and utterly compelling inventor, for help.

Oliver Hawkes reluctantly agrees to a platonic marriage . . . with his own condition: The marriage must end after one year. Not only does Oliver face challenges that are certain to make life as his wife difficult, but more importantly, he refuses to be distracted from his life’s work—the development of a revolutionary device that could transform thousands of lives, including his own.

Much to his surprise, his bride is more beguiling than he imagined. When temptation burns hot between them, they realize they must overcome their own secrets and doubts, and every effort to undermine their marriage, because one year can never be enough.

Sneak Peek! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for SUMMER OF SCANDAL by Syrie James!

Madeleine Atherton is no typical American heiress, sent to England to marry an English lord. A brilliant college graduate who secretly dreams of becoming a published author, she wants to marry for love. After receiving a proposal from a future duke, Madeleine flees the London Season for Cornwall to seek her sister’s advice, never expecting her decision to be complicated by a charming, handsome earl she’s certain she dislikes—even though his every touch sets her blood on fire.

Charles Grayson, the Earl of Saunders, has secrets and ambitions of his own. Although under pressure from his mother and gravely ill father to marry his cousin, Charles cannot find the words to propose. But this fascinating American visitor does not figure into his plans, either.

Thrown together unexpectedly at Trevelyan Manor, Madeleine and Charles struggle to rise above their intense attraction. But as things heat up between them over a summer that becomes increasingly scandalous, Madeleine and Charles will both be forced to make a difficult choice. Can two dreamers dare to defy convention and find their own happily ever after?

I realize that sometimes the right love come along at the wrong time. I’m not naive, despite my age.

I’ve loved Clock my entire life, desperate for him to see me as more than just a ‘kid’. I thought that our history would make our bond unbreakable.

What I didn’t know, was that after we crossed that line, even if only for a minute, there was no going back.

This is a forbidden, age-gap, love story about Clock & Chloe. You can meet these characters in the book LIGHTER, but you don’t have to read that story before this one.

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for UNDER CONTROL by Shannon Stacey!

From New York Times bestselling author SHANNON STACEY…

Meet the tough, dedicated men of BOSTON FIRE—and the women who turn their lives upside down.

When faced with the opportunity to change shifts while staying in the same house, veteran firefighter Derek Gilman jumps at the chance. His new schedule means not working Saturdays, which means more time to spend with his two kids. His divorce may have been amicable, but being a firefighter and a single dad is a lot to juggle. And when fate brings a gorgeous, wealthy woman into his life, he’s pretty sure he can’t handle more than he already is.

Olivia McGovern loves plans. She planned to start her own business and planned its growth. It’s earning her seven figures now, but her personal life simply doesn’t exist. Getting trapped in a broken elevator figures in exactly nowhere, and freaking out in front of a sexy firefighter definitely isn’t on the agenda. Especially not one with two kids and an ex.

What would have been a random incident with an attractive stranger becomes something more when a charity event brings them back together. They’re from different sides of the tracks, literally—with friends, family and careers to consider. But as Derek and Olivia are discovering, chemistry doesn’t allow for plans, and love doesn’t bother with logistics.

Don’t miss the entire Boston Fire series by Shannon Stacey! Heat Exchange, Controlled Burn, Fully Ignited and Hot Response are available now!

United in a common cause…

Lady Juliette Matthews longs to be much more than just another pretty ornament in society. But using her recently acquired fortune to do some good is more complicated than she anticipated.

Yet even with his new role as the country’s most eligible bachelor, the beautiful, fearless Juliette is utterly beyond his reach. The scandalous circumstances of his birth would destroy both their reputations if they became known.

ATTN WRITERS! Join Our Wattpad Flash Fiction Challenge! Request Your FREE Cover Today!

⊗⊗⊗ WHAT IS THE FLASH FICTION CHALLENGE? ⊗⊗⊗

Challenge might be the wrong word but it sounded better than “exercise thingy”. Each week, we will post a writing prompt, dialog line, or story starter out on our blog (it will also be included in the weekly author newsletter). Participating authors will then have the week to post a piece of flash fiction based on the provided prompt to their Wattpad profile.

The purpose of the challenge is to give writers a fun, weekly routine exercise to keep their writer brain fresh, even if they’re not currently working on a book. No one is judging the content of the flash fiction. The challenge is simply being created as something that can be done as a community. Participation is FREE.  No fees. No gimmicks. Just writing for fun.

At the end of each year, there will be prizes for certain markers, such as highest number of reads, highest number of likes, most weekly challenges completed, etc. Tied participants will be entered into random.org and the prize winner will be chosen using their list randomizer tool.

 

⊗⊗⊗ WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS? ⊗⊗⊗

Your flash fiction must be 200 or more words in length. Each participant will create a new work on Wattpad called Flash Fiction Challenge using challenge cover Pure Textuality PR provides. Each weekly challenge gets published as a new part in that work. Each year, we will provide participants with a new cover customized with their name.

 

⊗⊗⊗ HOW LONG DOES THE CHALLENGE RUN? ⊗⊗⊗

This will be a weekly challenge we post indefinitely. The challenge covers have the appearance of a composition notebook and each year, the color of the notebook will change. For instance, 2018’s cover is shown in the banner above and the color is burgundy. 2019 will be marked as 2019 – Volume II and will be a different color.

 

⊗⊗⊗ WHAT IF I MISS A WEEK? ⊗⊗⊗

Not a big deal. The only thing affected by missing a week is the fewer you participate in, the lower your chances of winning the prize for most weeks participated. No one gets disqualified or booted from the challenge if they miss a week. 🙂

 

THE FIRST PROMPT GOES LIVE THIS WEEK!

The Chase is on. One small town. Four hot brothers. And enough heat to burn up anyone who dares to get close. Don’t miss the other books in the series: Taking Chase, Giving Chase and Chased.

She knows who she is, what she wants, and where she’s headed. That is, until one extremely handsome distraction… someone from her past … throws her heart and mind into a tailspin. 

Dev Jackson is the embodiment of alpha male. He’s got nothing to prove; it’s there in his smile, his attitude, his swagger. He sees life through a rainbow coloured lens and that’s just fine with Scarlett. Life wasn’t always easy for him. He’s known hardship and experienced bigotry at close hand. The creator of three identities, managing three successful careers, he’s making sure he’ll never return to those days. 

When they reconnect, Scarlett shows him how to be simply Dev, and they soon become each other’s favourite pastime. 

Together they’re stamping their souls into a relationship that fits. Their obsession with each other grows stronger every day but Dev’s past constantly tests them, especially when the mysterious Demeter won’t leave him alone.

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for WHEN A DUKE LOVES A WOMAN by Lorraine Heath

Gillie Trewlove knows what a stranger’s kindness can mean, having been abandoned on a doorstep as a baby and raised by the woman who found her there. So, when suddenly faced with a soul in need at her door—or the alleyway by her tavern—Gillie doesn’t hesitate. But he’s no infant. He’s a grievously injured, distractingly handsome gentleman who doesn’t belong in Whitechapel, much less recuperating in Gillie’s bed . . .

Being left at the altar is humiliating; being rescued from thugs by a woman—albeit a brave and beautiful one—is the pièce de résistance to the Duke of Thornley’s extraordinarily bad day. After nursing him back from the brink, Gillie agrees to help him comb London’s darker corners for his wayward bride. But every moment together is edged with desire and has Thorne rethinking his choice of wife. Yet Gillie knows the aristocracy would never accept a duchess born in sin. Thorne, however, is determined to prove to her that no obstacle is insurmountable when a duke loves a woman.

He’s been a bad, bad rake—and it takes a governess to teach him a lesson.

The accidental governess.

After her livelihood slips through her fingers, Alexandra Mountbatten takes on an impossible post: transforming a pair of wild orphans into proper young ladies. However, the girls don’t need discipline. They need a loving home. Try telling that to their guardian, Chase Reynaud: duke’s heir in the streets and devil in the sheets. The ladies of London have tried—and failed—to make him settle down. Somehow, Alexandra must reach his heart . . . without risking her own.

The infamous rake.

Like any self-respecting libertine, Chase lives by one rule: no attachments. When a stubborn little governess tries to reform him, he decides to give her an education—in pleasure. That should prove he can’t be tamed. But Alexandra is more than he bargained for: clever, perceptive, passionate. She refuses to see him as a lost cause. Soon the walls around Chase’s heart are crumbling . . . and he’s in danger of falling, hard.

Last semester, Romy escaped from an abusive relationship with the guy she’d thought was the man of her dreams. This semester she’s putting herself back together, determined to reclaim her passion for art and for life. When she signs up for a painting class at the local art co-op, the possibility of passion becomes very real — in the form of her teacher, Caleb. Both mysterious and seriously hot, Caleb bares his soul on his canvases, and Romy’s fascinated by what she sees.

Caleb is just trying to keep his head above water. Caring for his traumatized, unstable sister is getting harder every day, and his paintings are so dark and bleak that no one is buying. Teaching classes at the co-op is no longer enough, and now he’s going to have to sell more than just his art to the wealthy, sex-starved women in his classes. But when Romy comes along, she makes everything more complicated. She sees the truth in his paintings — a truth no one else has realized, until now.

Romy and Caleb might have a real shot together — one that could heal them both. But when ghosts from their pasts re-emerge, determined to keep them apart, will they be strong enough to hold on to each other?

 

 

 

 


Daniel’s got everything figured out. He makes a good living as an artist … mostly through offering “private shows” to the wives of local wealthy businessmen. He never stops playing the game and never lets anyone touch his heart. But when his current fling offers him a few hundred an hour for art lessons for her reclusive, college-dropout daughter, Daniel finds himself forgetting his own rules. The girl is rude. Insulting. Incredible.

And she sees straight through him.

Stella is hiding from the world, not because she wants to, but because crippling panic attacks await her every time she tries to live a normal life. She’s determined to push everyone–including her handsome new art teacher—away. But Daniel makes it utterly impossible. The guy is irritating. Mocking. Magnetic.

And makes her want things she knows she can never have.

What starts as a battle of wills turns into passion, where giving in means facing the things that scare them most.

 

 

 

 


Nessa Cavanaugh, psychology student, knows how to stay on an even keel. Despite the urging of her mother and her academic advisor to get a life and have some fun, “all work and no play” sums up her plan to survive her grueling internship year at a children’s hospital. She doesn’t want to end up like her father, whose constant ups and downs broke her family, and avoiding unnecessary emotional entanglements is a must.

Then she (literally) runs into Dr. Aron Lindstrom in the middle of her disastrous first day on the job. The attraction is instant—and terrifying. Nessa knows she should stay away—especially when she finds out he has a reputation for being a player—but Aron is brilliant, intense, and as sexy as they come. When he challenges her to take a chance on him, her plans to stay focused on work start to crumble.

But what begins as passion takes on a dangerous edge, becoming an emotional roller coaster that’s frighteningly familiar. As things spiral out of control, Nessa must decide whether she should hold on for the ride or run … even if it means leaving her heart behind.

Rehabilitation…or a wicked breeding program? Kelia’s about to learn there’s worse fates than being a Sightless.

Following the discovery of her relationship with the infamous Sea Shadow Drew Knight, Sea Slayer Kelia Starling is condemned to a life of servitude, washing dishes and delivering water room to room. She is a Sightless, and she’s trying to redeem herself. At least, that’s what she needs the Society to believe.

Unbeknownst to them, however, Kelia is still investigating why the Society murdered her father, while Drew Knight has secretly visited her to call on the favor Kelia owes him as well. He’s tasked her with discovering the whereabouts of a Ms. Wendy Parsons, who he believes is being held captive somewhere within the Society.

But as Kelia’s research intensifies, and her missions for herself and for Drew intersect, Kelia is confronted with a disturbing realization: before her father’s death, he’d created a wicked breeding program that forces relations between Shadows and irredeemable Sightless.

And Kelia’s just been placed in the program.

CALL OF DARKNESS is the dark and disturbing second installment of the Vampire Pirate Saga, a thrilling urban fantasy romance series for fans of Sarah J Maas and Karen Marie Moning!

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for TO LOVE A DUCHESS by Karen Ranney!

From New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Ranney comes the first book in a royally romantic and deeply emotional new series about taking risks and allowing the power to love satisfy the questions of the heart . . .

Undercover as a majordomo, spy Adam Drummond has infiltrated Marsley House with one purpose only—to plunder its mysteries and gather proof that the late Duke of Marsley was an unforgivable traitor to his country. At the same time, Adam is drawn to a more beguiling puzzle: the young and still-grieving duchess—a beauty with impenetrable secrets of her own. For Drummond, uncovering them without exposing his masquerade will require the most challenging and tender moves of his career.

That a servant can arouse such passion in her is too shocking for Suzanne Whitcomb, Duchess of Marsley, to consider. Yet nothing quickens her pulse like Drummond’s touch. It’s been two years since the duke lost his life in a tragic accident—and even longer since she’s been treated like a woman. But when Drummond’s real mission is revealed, and the truth behind Suzanne’s grief comes to light, every secret conspired to tear them apart is nothing compared to the love that can hold them together.

New Release! Check out this paperback giveaway for CITY OF DEMONS by Debbie Cassidy!

THE FIRST INSTALLMENT IN THE CHRONICLES OF ARCANA SERIES BY USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR DEBBIE CASSIDY.

If Buffy and Angel could have banged without him going all evil, then we would have had Wilomena Bastion.

Dragons suck, like literally suck the life out of you if you let them. Trick is not to look them directly in the eyes, like ever. So, the day Wila finds herself staring into the most dangerous Draconi’s pretty, emerald peepers, she knows she’s royally fucked.

No one said saving a bunch of kids from being served up as treats to the dragon liege was going to be easy. Options are limited—immediate execution or servitude, and Wila prefers to have her head remain firmly on her shoulders.

Now, the self-professed dark avenger must work to bring down a resistance of demons hell-bent on making life difficult for the dragon liege. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, her new position comes with a partner, the dragon liege’s favoured demon enforcer; a creature of fire, fury and washboard abs who—let’s face it—is just gonna cramp her style.

With the help of a ghostly receptionist, a talking dog and the thing that lives in the basement, Wila will be forced to take on a most dangerous task. It looks like some serious brooding is on the menu, because for the first time in forever, Wila isn’t sure she’s up to the job.

A city filled with monsters needs a woman who can kick ass, and Wilomena Bastion is just the gal for the job.

A kick-ass urban fantasy with a slow burn reverse harem romance.

Title Spotlight! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for MOON PROMISE by Carmen Fox!

Private eye by day. Alpha by nature.

All her life, Kensi has dreamed of being an alpha werewolf. The trouble is, she can’t shift. And she’s tried everything: meditation, mind-expanding drugs, even squeezing real hard. Despite her lack of success, she’s not giving up. Her plan B? Offering her talents as a private eye to the Wild Pack. If she can locate their missing werewolf, they’re bound to support her claim to lead.

Dominant, stubborn and searing hot Drake is assigned to be her guide, and he’s just too damn good at his job. His hard chest bumps into her as he stalks her every move, while his mercury eyes watch her all the time, tearing down her defenses bit by bit. Maybe she got it wrong and being an alpha isn’t the only thing she wants.

But when the missing girl turns up dead, Drake’s story unravels. Putting her ambitions on the line, Kensi sets out to prove whether the man she loves is as innocent as she hopes—or as guilty as she fears.

Sneak Peek! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for A DUKE BY DEFAULT by Alyssa Cole!

Award-winning author Alyssa Cole’s Reluctant Royals series continues with a woman on a quest to be the heroine of her own story and the duke in shining armor she rescues along the way…

New York City socialite and perpetual hot mess Portia Hobbs is tired of disappointing her family, friends, and—most importantly—herself. An apprenticeship with a struggling swordmaker in Scotland is a chance to use her expertise and discover what she’s capable of. Turns out she excels at aggravating her gruff silver fox boss…when she’s not having inappropriate fantasies about his sexy Scottish burr.

Tavish McKenzie doesn’t need a rich, spoiled American telling him how to run his armory…even if she is infuriatingly good at it. Tav tries to rebuff his apprentice—and his attraction to her—but when Portia accidentally discovers that he’s the secret son of a duke, rough-around-the-edges Tav becomes her newest makeover project.

Forging metal into weapons and armor is one thing, but when desire burns out of control and the media spotlight gets too hot to bear, can a commoner turned duke and his posh apprentice find lasting love?

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for HYENA’S QUEEN by Ann Mayburn!

My name is Synthia Rowley, and so far I really suck at saving the world.

I’m a latent shifter, a human that magically transformed into a hyena Queen. Crazy, right? You have no idea. When I turned twenty-five some magical chastity belt that had been completely blocking my sex drive snapped. One minute I was the ultimate shy science dork, the next I had curves that kill and a libido that won’t quit.

Good thing, ‘cause I’m supposed to have four husbands.

Yep, four. I’m destined to marry them all and they were all born to love me and only me. My own little harem. Here comes the really insane part. My husbands? The four men that I’ll be mated to for the rest of my life? They were born female and my pheromones will turn them into men. You heard me right, my hyena Queen pheromones will literally change my mates from women, into hulked out sexy studs. But if I don’t find and transform my mates, and soon, my world and everyone in it will be slaughtered by demons from a different dimension.

Good times.

One woman is in a world of otherworldly trouble—and she’s going to have to bet her life to save humankind.

WRITERS WANTED! Articles wanted for the first issue of Dirty Halos Monthly!

Pure Textuality PR is currently seeking writers for two articles to be in the first issue of Dirty Halos Monthly, a monthly emagazine dedicated to the book world, readers and authors alike. We’re looking to exchange a half, quarter, or full page (your choice) for your time and work.

Below are the article titles, taglines, and a description of what we’re looking for. The drop dead date to have the finished article to me would be August 25th (although as soon as possible would be preferable).

All articles will require final editorial approval by Pure Textuality PR. We reserve the right to require edits before accepting a final piece, and we reserve the right to refuse a final story if it does not jive with our mission for the magazine.

If you’re interested, drop us an email at DirtyHalosInfo@gmail.com or send us a live chat message right on our website and we’ll chat more detail.

 

COCKYGATE – The First Shot in the War Over Common Use Words 

THIS IS NOT TO BE A FALEENA HOPKINS BASHFEST. What we’re looking for is the piece to be an objectively written look at why this is such a huge issue for writers – the potential litigious impact, the financial and social impact of rebranding, and what it could mean for the future of self-publishing. I’d like the piece to look at what TMing a “common use” word means as well.

 

[AS YET UNTITLED] – Writing Romance in the Age of #MeToo

This one would be for romance writers in particular. I want to get the prospective of someone writing romance in the #MeToo era. What’s it like to write an alpha male knowing that a lot of “alpha” behaviors would no longer be tolerated in real life? Has the #MeToo movement changed the way you write your love stories?

Please feel free to share this with any writers you think might be interested.

P.S. – Here’s a sneak peek at the cover of issue #1.

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for HUNT ME by Elodie Colt!

He’s a lost man with a black soul. She’s a lost cause with a black heart. But together, they make a heart of gold.

I’m Leonara, the crazy one in Sam’s circle. The one with the nightmares lurking behind her shoulder, the blunt attitude, and the manners of a hedgehog. The one who needs tattoos to hide what can’t be erased, a shrink to cure what can’t be cured, and a pencil in her hand to escape a reality which can’t be evaded.

To Daniel DeLuca, I’m only a means to an end. A pawn in the kingdom he rules. To me, he’s a bomb detonating in my pathetic little life I haven’t seen coming. A rich-ass mobster in Armani with a smile to kill for and eyes to die for. Oh, and also the guy who hunts me down and ships me off to another country like one of his coke packages.

So, you see, my lifestyle is as close to his as the next solar system to planet Earth. Yet, his soul connects with mine on a level that seems to defy every law of nature. How the hell am I supposed to stand a chance?

New Release! Check out this giveaway for QUEEN OF THORNS AND ROSES by Connie Suttle!

KYRI

“You thought you could walk right into Az-ca, take over where you left off centuries ago, and everybody would just fall in with your plans. Is that it?”

“I didn’t count on her—never saw her in all my divinations.”

He meant Sherra. An unseeable. He’d divined Thorn II, just not his Queen and partner. “So. You wanted to take over after practically destroying their current King—who was a very good King, and before that, an excellent Commander of the army. That’s a hell of a way to get Az-ca’s population to adore you, isn’t it?”

“I can offer them peace,” he began.

“Except you can’t. Kaakos is still alive, remember, and he’ll be coming for you—of that I have no doubt. You know it, too, and you can’t take him on without Az-ca’s army at your back.”

“I thought we could work together—Thorn II and I. That he’d see the reason in it after a while.”

“And, as he’s currently powerless, what choice would he have?” I sniped. “Except he has the strongest Queen you’ve ever seen at his side, and she certainly won’t fall for that bullshit.”

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

The present King of Az-ca has been rendered powerless through an unsuspected coup, and is overcome with despair.

Kaakos has escaped death, but is forced to leave Ny-nes. Now, his sole focus is revenge.

Az-ca’s citizens have fallen victim to the enemy’s lies, and civil war threatens to split the country.

Sherra is forced to divide her attention between searching for the enemy, dealing with traitors and struggling with the King’s misery and desolation. When the blood spell that rendered Kerok powerless takes a turn even its maker didn’t expect, only her dreamwalker, with help from another, can hope to turn the tide…

Good morning and Happy Sunday, ladies and germs!

I’m looking for the Kindle Unlimited writers in the room.

Pure Textuality PR is launching a series of Saturday newsletters, all genre specific, all Kindle Unlimited books (price point doesn’t matter). Our goal with the newsletter is KindleUnlimited Free Trial sign ups and your books will be spotlighted as examples of the books available in the program. Each issue has 30 spots available and depending on the success of the campaigns, we may make this a regular thing every Saturday.

If you’re not familiar with BookBoast, it’s a newsletter listing website for authors. You can accept swaps in your newsletter and place requests to have you books listed in other authors’ newsletters. A free account allows you 10 acceptances per month, and you can upgrade your account from there if you need more. For example, for $10/month, you have unlimited acceptances and a bunch of other perks including the use of your own Amazon affiliate links.

The links to the newsletter sign ups are below with the schedule. As I said, this is a trial run but this may very well become a permanently free promo opp we offer.

Also, if you sign up for a BookBoast account, they do have a referral program available to get your monthly bill discounted if you use a paid account. I am *not* using referral links below, I just thought that was info some of you might be interested in.

July 7th – Paranormal Romance KU Reads – REQUEST A SPOT

July 14th – Contemporary Romance KU Reads – REQUEST A SPOT

July 21st – SciFi & SciFi Romance KU Reads – REQUEST A SPOT

July 28th – Urban Fantasy & Supernatural Suspense – REQUEST A SPOT

We’re also going to be doing our Freebie Reads bookings exclusively through BookBoast soon. We used to use the service and recently returned to it while taking care of some tasks for a client and decided to give it a try again. I’ve specifically been using it for my own books and out of the requests I’ve sent, I’ve had a really good response so far.  🙂

Okay, I’m off. Enjoy the upcoming holiday!

Guest Post! WRITING WIDE by J.S. Wayne

Writing Wide

I’m easily bored.

I hate convention. I hate tropes, though I often find myself weaving them into my stories without conscious intent. I despise “the usual” and am always looking for a way to do things differently, some way to shake up the system and cause a little disruption in people’s expectations. This sensibility, of not doing the expected thing, or of doing the expected in an unexpected way, has been part of me for as long as I can remember.

When it comes to writing, I can’t write the same thing twice in a row. I don’t mean I don’t want to, or it doesn’t interest me. I am literally, physically incapable of it. I finish a story, and I know it’s something good. I know there’s a sequel there, and I’m the one to write it because I’m the one who lives in my characters’ heads.

But I sit down to the keyboard, and nothing happens.

You’ve done it all before, my brain says. You’re not bringing anything new to this story right now.

At this point, I have two choices: I can either force it, and it will sound and feel forced because it is, or I can set it aside and do something else, purging the new idea so I can look at the sequel with fresh eyes.

I never wanted to write erotic romance. I was urban fantasy all the way, and ride or die, that was my genre and Hell would hold Latin High Mass in a raging blizzard with compulsory attendance for every damned soul and demon before I’d get within an astronomical unit of writing romance. It was “too easy,” too safe, and besides, every single romance writer is a woman! (Yes, I’m well aware the entire last sentence is a series of myths now, thanks. But I didn’t know that then.)

And yet…

July 2018 Instachallenges! One for Readers and One for Writers!

Good afternoon and Happy Thursday!

I cant believe it’s almost July already. Since we’re a few days away from the start of a new month, we thought this would be a good time to launch an Instagram photo challenge. We’ve got one for readers and one for writers. If you’re both, feel free to participate in both! They’ve each been assigned a separate hashtag and the challenge assignments were organized so you don’t have two similar overlapping.

Speak of assignments, below you will find not only the challenge graphics, but also an explanation of the assignment meaning. That way, if there is one you don’t quite understand, you can refer back here to see what the hell I was talking about.

For those not familiar with how an Instagram Photo Challenge works, we’ve created a list of assignments. Each assignment has a set day. You take or post a picture to your Instagram account on the assigned day with the event hashtag (#ReaderLife2018 or #AuthorLife2018) and your caption. Those following the event hashtag can then search the hashtag and your post will show up among the results.

Hope to see you all participate!  See you over on Instagram!  @puretextuality

THE SECOND BOOK IN AN EXCITING NEW URBAN FANTASY SERIES BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR SARAH FINE.

Life and death are a gamble for a girl fighting to save humanity in a world she’s only beginning to understand.

One minute, Ernestine “Ernie” Terwilliger was a fairly normal young woman with an almost normal life. Absent father. Peculiar mother. Family secrets. The next, she was hurled into a land where the Immortal Dealers are waging a battle between good and evil—and where the fate of the world is in the cards.

Having only started to master her own deck, the inexperienced Ernie places the wrong bet on the right guy at the worst time. That’s when she’s bounced into another realm and trapped there by a formidable and power-hungry rogue Dealer who knows more about Ernie’s fractured family than Ernie herself does.

Now, Ernie’s fight to free herself is only the beginning. As the secrets of Ernie’s father and his own relics of power start to surface, Ernie will need to tell friend from foe—a feat not as easy as it seems.

At least now she has a full deck…because to survive secrets, betrayals, and dangerous dimensions, she’ll need to deal the best hand.

Alexandra is surprised to find she thrives in her new position at Longford’s home.

$0.99 New Release! Check out this excerpt for HOTLINE TO HELL by Emily Cyr!

THERE’S NO HANGING UP NOW.

Kayel Cleary is a phone sex operator. All she wants to do is get through law school, and if that means late-night phone calls with men who think she’s something she’s not, then so be it.

That is, until one of her long-time clients is murdered – and she hears it all.

Lathan only wants one thing: a seat on the vampire council. He’s worked his entire unnatural life for this moment, only to have it fall apart when his biggest supporter ends up dead. Now, Lathan has to find and work with the only witness. And she happens to be a phone sex operator.

Thrust into a world she never knew existed, Kayel must help Lathan find the murderer and stop the impending war, all while fighting her attraction for the undead man she loves to hate. If she can’t learn their ways and figure out who killed Marco, then she may lose more than just her life … She may spark a war that would spell disaster for vampires and humans alike.

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for THE DEVIL YOU KNOW by Jena Gregoire!

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE.

Following a drunken night together, the vampire Michael “Vegas” Tremayne takes off with no explanation, leaving Deziree Davanzati to wonder if they’d made a terrible mistake. Rather than obsess about it, Dez spends most of her time at Onyx, the rock club she owns and operates for the supernatural citizens of New York City. All are welcome-werewolves, witches, and anyone else willing to play nice while under her roof and pay their tab at the end of the night.

After two weeks of radio silence, Vegas returns with alarming news. For the first time in more than four centuries, there is reason to believe a pureblood demon is walking among them. They suspect someone from the the Council may be behind the creature’s return, but to what end?

With the Sentinel Stone missing, they’re down to the wire and don’t know who to trust. Will Dez and Vegas stop the demon in time? Or will Hell itself be unleashed upon the world?

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for HOW TO FORGET A DUKE by Vivenne Lorret!

The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule: Never fall in love with the client. A simple thing to remember… unless you’re a matchmaker with amnesia.

The Duke of Rydstrom requires a wife. Preferably one with a large fortune and a complete lack of curiosity. The last thing he needs is a meddling matchmaker determined to dig up his dark family secrets.

All Jacinda wants is to find a bride for a duke. How hard could that be? He’s handsome, enigmatic… and hiding something. She’s sure of it. Determined to discover what it is, she travels to his crumbling cliffside estate. Yet, by the time she washes up on his beach, she can no longer remember who she is, or why the duke is so familiar to her. All she knows is that his kisses are unforgettable—and she intends to use every skill she can to discover what’s in his heart . . .

When Miss Bourne can’t remember what brought her to his ancestral home, Rydstrom intends to keep it that way. Yet as the days pass, his true challenge will be safeguarding his secret while resisting this woman who—confound it all—may well be his perfect match.

New Release & a Personal Note from Jena Gregoire! Check out COCKTALES, a limited-release anthology to benefit authors impacted by #cockygate!

Good afternoon, readers!  I don’t normally include a personal note on new release announcements but this one actually hits home for every author out there, no matter the genre. As you may have heard, an author by the name of Faleena Hopkins made the very poor choice to trademark a common use word (cocky) and then set out on a warpath, her sights laser locked on any author with the word ‘cocky’ in their book or series title. #Cockygate was born and the author community at large—not just romance authors…..everybody—rained down FIRE. Go ahead, search that hashtag on any social media site or on Google and you will see a FLOOD of content. And none of it is in defense of the author’s trademark….

There is a great write up you can read here that lays out what initially happened, the AMAZING people who’ve gotten involved to have the trademark cancelled, and the many, many dominoes that have fallen since the news broke. Additionally, here is another write up from the same source who outlines how Hopkins has since doubled down on the stupidity factor by filing a few lawsuits, one of which is blaming the author/retired lawyer who filed the petition to cancel her trademark for loss of sales citing the questionable intelligence of readers and their ability to discern one cover from another. …. ….. ……  Yes, you read that right. (Faleena, honey, that loss was purely self-inflicted.  You’re the only one who doesn’t get it.)

I watched all of this unfold in abject horror. As a writer, the precedent her trademark sets is staggering and opens the door for lawsuits to start flying back and forth like CRAZY.  However, I feel confident thanks to Kevin Knuepper’s Petition to Cancel. If you read through that document, his argument is rock solid and I don’t see how anyone with common sense could possibly deny his request. But the unfortunate truth is that until that petition gets approved, she holds the legal trademark and using the word is risky. So, cross your crossables, kids. And when her trademark gets slapped down for the ridiculousness that it is, we’ll all celebrate with midnight margaritas.  😉

From a purely petty point of view, I genuinely don’t understand how this woman felt her brand was in any way, shape, or form “threatened” given that out of the countless authors and readers I’ve spoken with about this since it broke, NO ONE KNEW WHO THE HELL SHE WAS. No one. Not one single person I talked to said, “Oh yeah, I’ve heard of her.” Not one. Not until the day she tried to pull a fast one on a community that strongly believes in lifting one another up instead of cutting one another off at the knees. Good luck, Ms. Hopkins. You’re going to need it.

The reason I’m writing to you today is to tell you about this wonderful anthology. It’s only available for a limited time, features a TON of awesome names, and all of the proceeds are going to help those impacted by the #cockygate scandal.  I strongly encourage you all to go out to your favorite ebook retailer and just read the Forward (it’s the first thing available when you read the sample).  It takes all of two minutes to read through and really shows the kind of impact this had on just ONE of the many authors who’v been blindsided by this situation. Hers is a wonderful story of finding your tribe and what can happen when this community comes together to rally around those who are legitimately being wronged.

I’m beyond proud to be part of that community.

New Release! Check out this excerpt & giveaway for TOO WILDE TO WED by Eloisa James!

No one is more surprised than Lord North when he returns from war to find his ex-fiancee in his ancestral home…working as a governess in a sexy, fiery new Wildes of Lindow Castle romance by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James…

The handsome, rakish heir to a dukedom, Lord Roland Northbridge Wilde—known to his friends as North—left England two years ago, after being jilted by Miss Diana Belgrave. He returns from war to find that he’s notorious: polite society has ruled him “too wild to wed.”

Diana never meant to tarnish North’s reputation, or his heart, but in her rush to save a helpless child, there was no time to consider the consequences of working as a governess in Lindow Castle. Now everyone has drawn the worst conclusions about the child’s father, and Diana is left with bittersweet regret.

When North makes it clear that he still wants her for his own, scandal or no, Diana has to fight to keep from losing her heart to the man whom she still has no intention of marrying.

Yet North is returning a hardened warrior—and this is one battle he’s determined to win.

He wants Diana, and he’ll risk everything to call her his own.
