My iPad and me: BFFs. 
I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. 
I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. 
I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).

*** RELEASE BLITZ & GIVEAWAY *** Forget Me Not, Willow Winters

 

 

Title: Forget Me Not
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 12, 2017
Blurb
I fell in love with a boy a long time ago.I was only a
small girl.  Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held
against my will.  His father hurt me, but he protected
me and kept me safe as best he could. 

Until I left him.I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind
me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him
in the hands of a monster.

I’ve never felt such guilt in my life. 

Although I survived, the boy was never found.  I prayed for him to
be safe.  I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me.  Even as a
young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.

Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.

But the boy came back a man.  With a grip strong enough to keep me
close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him
again.   I was his to keep after all.

Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another.  Our tale
was only just getting started.

It’s dark and twisted. 

But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.

A love story. Our love story.

*** RELEASE BLITZ *** Their Virgin Brat, SC Daiko

Title: Their Virgin Brat
Author: SC Daiko
Genre: Contemporary/Menage Romance
Release Date: September 9, 2017

 

Super-hot twins for one bratty girl
Aiden and Liam
Dad has remarried and our new step-sibling is a brat.
But we’re good at soothing difficult mares;
a slip of a girl should be no problem.
When we learn the brat still has her V card,
riding horses isn’t the only thing on our minds.
We can’t stop thinking about bratty Samantha,
breaking her in and making her ours.
Just for a short time.
At least, that’s the rule.
Except rules are made to be broken, right?
Samantha
I’ve never been with one man,
let alone two,
and that suits me fine.
Men are trouble.
Aiden and Liam are so freaking hot, though,
soon all I want is their touch,
their kisses,
their gorgeous shafts.
I know what we’re doing is wrong.
They’re my twin step-siblings;
if our parents find out
all hell will break loose.
One rule: it’s only for a short time.
Will we lose everything by breaking that rule?

 

“Hot, hot, hot”

“Fun, sexy and taboo!”

“The characters are well-developed and I loved them all so much.”

“The epilogue is everything a reader would want from this feel-good story.”






Their scent reaches me before I feel their arms holding me… Aiden’s warm spice and Liam’s fresh outdoors aroma.
Fear slices through me, and I try to push them away.
“Shh, we’ve got you, babe,” Liam whispers into my ear. “It’s alright You’ve had a nightmare.”
I’m sandwiched between them, and they’re stroking me, soothing me like one of their horses.
I lift my face, and Aiden kisses away my tears. “Better now?”
I feel strange, like I’m still dreaming. Maybe I’ll wake up in a minute and standoffish Sam will reassert herself and tell them to get lost. Instead, against all reason, I lie there, wanting their touch.
They’re breathing deeply now, and their hands are everywhere, smoothing my hair, grazing the tops of my thighs, squeezing my ass.
My nipples are pressed against Aiden’s hard chest, and, for a moment, I feel embarrassed my tits are so small. I hear my heartbeat echoing in my ears, and feel his warm breath fanning my forehead. He kisses me; I close my eyes, daringly flicking my tongue into his mouth. His beard scratches my lips and he tastes of chocolate and mint.
I can’t believe this is happening.
My first kiss from a man.
Ever.
And I’m not scared.
I even hope I’ve done it right.
“My go now,” Liam grunts from behind.
Aiden turns me and Liam’s mouth captures mine. His lips are hot, wet, and needy. I pull away, gasping, staring into his hooded eyes. A prickle of anxiety spikes my insides as I feel the ridge of something hard against my belly. His cock. Eek!

*** COVER REVEAL & GIVEAWAY *** Caged, Clarissa Wild

Title: Caged
Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: September 26, 2017
Cover Designer: Booming Covers 

They call me savage. An untamed beast.

I was born in the cage. Born to fight. Born to carry its name.

Locked away, I’ve spent years waiting for my mate.

I’m pent up with need. Brimming with desire.

All I want is her… That beautiful girl from the picture on my prison wall.

Now she’s finally here, sharing a cell.

So close. So hard to resist.

But one thing’s for sure…

Even if she doesn’t know it yet, she’s already mine.

WARNING: Contains disturbing content that may be offensive to some readers.

https://widget-prime.rafflecopter.com/launch.js

When I come to again, the first thing I feel is a roaring headache. My lungs burn when I breathe through my mouth. A metallic taste lies on my tongue, and I swallow to make it go away, but it lingers. Everything hurts. My head. My mouth. As if I’ve been hit a couple of times … but I can’t remember a thing.

And when I open my eyes, I’m still so dizzy; I can barely make out a thing.

It’s dark as night. Not a single light surrounds me except the one at the far end of the room.

The room … with no windows.

No plants.

No sunlight.

Nothing.

All I can see is a gray concrete wall surrounding me.

I try to get up, but my feet don’t feel like they belong to me, and I struggle to get anywhere. But I don’t give up. I keep crawling across the floor, hoping to make it to the light, just so I can see where I am.

But I can’t.

Not because my muscles gave up.

But because I physically, literally can’t.

Between me and the light … is glass.

I turn around, trying to find a way around it, but there’s no crack. Not a single one in all the glass surrounding me. Not even at the top as I try to stand on my toes. Nothing … but glass.

A cage.

My heart stops beating.

The panic rises again, bubbling to the surface.

I open my mouth and scream but no sound comes out except for a faint sigh.

Just like always. My voice was taken from me a long time ago. And I know no matter how hard I try that no one will hear me.

Where am I? Who was that man? Where did he bring me and why?

With my back against the glass panes, I sink to the floor.

I can still barely make out my environment or feel my own skin. I’m numb from the drug he gave me and numb from the shock.

But I still don’t cry. I close my mouth and stop breathing. I stop moving. Like a rock, I stay put and pretend I’m not there.

Why?

Because something across the room, not far from me, still captures my attention.

Something lurking in the dark behind the glass.

I’m not alone.

Excerpt
“Hello?”
“Alexandria, this is Jared from Society X. How are you?”
I gasp and look around, hoping like hell the woman beside me couldn’t hear. “Yes, hi. I’m doing good. You?” Grabbing my bottle of water, I hurry off the stair climber to a vacant corner across the room.
“Can’t complain. I’m calling because I have a proposition you might be interested in. You put in your application that you’re open to anything. Is that correct?”
My cheeks burn like fire. “Yeah, I guess so. What exactly is this proposition?”
He clears his throat. “I have a client who has particular tastes, or fetishes if you prefer. His partner can’t make it tonight, and I need to fill that spot.”
Swallowing hard, my heart races. I’m nervous just hearing him talk about it. “What will I have to do?”
“You, absolutely nothing. All you’ll have to do is lie there on your stomach while your partner massages your backside.”
“You mean my back?” I ask.
He clears his throat again. “No, your ass.”
I don’t know what comes over me, but I burst out laughing. “You’re joking, right?”
“No, I’m not.”
I hush up quickly. “I honestly didn’t know that was a thing. It’s an interesting concept.”
“Is it something you’d be interested in? You don’t have to be naked. Your upper body will be covered by a curtain so you can wear a shirt. However, below your waist, you’ll need to wear a thong.”
Keeping a straight face and not laughing is going to be the hardest part of the whole thing. How can someone get off by rubbing someone’s ass? “Sure, put me down. What time do I need to be there?” I say it before even really thinking it through.
“Eight o’clock. I’ll see you then,” Jared says.
“All right.”
We hang up, and I head straight for the gym door. There’s no way I can keep something like that a secret from my friends. Once outside, I call Dani.
“What’s up, girl?”
I rush to my car and hop inside. “You will not believe the phone call I just got.”
“What’s going on?”
I haven’t told her about being a member of Society X yet. “I kind of became a member of Society X.”
“Holy shit,” she squeals. “Seriously? Why didn’t you tell me at work today?”
Sighing, I pull out of the parking lot for home. “Honestly, I didn’t think I’d get a request so fast. My contact called me and said he had a proposition for me. And get this, it’s for the play room. The guy wants to massage my ass.”
Dani’s cackle is so loud I have to hold the phone away from my ear. “That’s priceless. Please tell me you said yes.”
I groan. “Unfortunately. What if I burst out laughing while this dude’s squeezing my butt cheeks?”
Dani’s laughing so hard I’m surprised she can even breathe. “I don’t know what to say. This is too funny. What kind of freak gets off on someone’s ass?”
“Obviously, the man I’m about to give my ass to.” I’m starting to think I made a mistake accepting the proposition. At least, I’ll have a good story to tell later. “Wish me luck.”
“Good luck, chickee. I want all the details.”
On the way home, I glance at myself in the mirror. What the hell am I doing?

From the bestselling author of The Kissed Series comes

What would you sacrifice for the one you love?
 
She’s gone.
Marc stared at the
early morning lights as it played across the ceiling above him.
Every morning I
wake up, and for a split-second…I don’t remember she left.
I don’t remember
the unfounded accusations hurled my way, or how I wanted to rip the divorce
papers into infinite pieces like she did to us.
But then I blink,
and it all comes rushing back.
Every. Single.
Day.
And night.
My dreams are
filled with the raspy sounds of her voice urging me on, the bite of pain as her
nails dig desperately into my back, and the way she looks to the heavens in awe
as I push her over the edge.
And then…I wake
up, and her side of the bed is as cold as my wrecked heart.
Why?
Throwing his legs
over the side of the bed Marc dropped his head into his hands, grinding the
palms of his hands into his sleep deprived eyes, with only one thought to get
him through the day…
I’m not going to
stop until I know why she threw us away.

Early Reviews
I am in love with Marc, so I am telling you, Ms. Scott, that
you need to put a warning on this book telling the women to keep their dirty
thoughts about him at bay because I have claimed him as mine.  I will even
lick him to make it official. 
 *******************
OMG I want Marc and you had me going the whole time.  I
couldn’t predict where you were taking me next and I love that.  The
twist… good Lord, that was brilliant. 
 ******************
Can I just say I am freaking in love with Marc. OMG where
did this man come from and are there extras.  
 ****************
I started this book on Saturday morning and couldn’t put it
down until I finished at 1AM! I had to see what happened next. What I thought
would happen totally didn’t! Great one! 
 ****************

Excerpt
Callie stared at the pen her lawyer laid before her.
“Sign here, then initial here, and here.”
With only a few marks on a piece of paper, she’d end the
best thing that had ever happened to her. Her eyes dropped to her hands,
clasped tightly in her lap. The promises she’d made with the shiny stone on her
ring finger taunted her. She’d been so happy the day Marc had asked her to
marry him and placed the ring on her finger. Since that day, she’d never once
removed the diamond solitaire. Nine months of sheer bliss with the man she
loved.
Her eyes began to water as the diamond swam in and out of
focus. Hurting Marc was the worst part of it all. But hurting him now, by her
own hand, was the only way she knew to protect him.
“Callie,” Rebecca, her lawyer, asked. “Do you have any
questions?”
She fought against the dizziness, shook her head and slowly
picked up the pen. “No, no questions.” The cool metal felt heavy in her hand,
just like the burden she’d been carrying most of her life. She had nobody to
blame but herself for ever thinking she could bury her past. She’d been
distracted by the brilliance of her love for Marc, and their relationship had
moved too fast.
They had fallen in love and were married less than a month
after they’d met. He’d come into her life like a whirlwind and made her believe
she deserved to be happy. She didn’t. She’d been too weak to walk away when she
should have, before things went too far, and now she had to hurt the man she’d
grown to love deeply and endlessly. It seemed cruel, but was the exact
opposite.
“Callie, are you sure you want to sign those papers?”
No, she didn’t want to sign them, but there was no other
way. “I’m sure.”
“I have to ask you again, is that the total amount you want?
Marc is worth billions. You could be set for life if you’d ask for your fair share.”
Money. She’d give it all up if it meant she’d get to keep
Marc. “I want no more than the amount I stated, including the clause that
additional funds are forever non-negotiable.”
Rebecca looked ready to argue the point again. “Callie,
you’re not even asking for alimony.”
Callie’s eyes blazed and her voice rose. “I don’t want it,
Rebecca. We were only married for nine months. It was a marriage that never
should have happened in the first place.” Nine perfect months that she would
cherish for the rest of her life. Well, it had been perfect until she’d accused
Marc of being unfaithful. Since that day, they’d had so many fights she’d lost
count. She leaned forward to sign, but Rebecca stopped her.
“One hundred thousand dollars isn’t going to go very far when
you consider maintaining your lifestyle.”
Maintaining her lifestyle. That was a joke. The life she’d
lived with Marc had been magical, like a dream come true. She could never
replicate that without him. But that wasn’t her lifestyle. Luxury houses, drivers,
designer clothes, chefs—those weren’t her. Marc had been all she’d ever wanted.
Not things. She’d have no trouble returning to what she knew best.
Straightening her back, blinking to focus on the lines, Callie signed her name
in the appropriate spots and pushed the papers away. “Are we finished here?”
Rebecca looked like she wanted to argue, then relented.
“Yes, but I still wish you’d reconsider.”
Callie shook her head and stared at the papers mocking her
on the table. Her last remaining connection with Marc. “Do you have my check?”
Rebecca shuffled through a file and handed over a white
envelope. With much more bravery than she actually felt, Callie took the check
and stood on unsteady legs. She gave herself a moment for the trembling to
settle before turning around. She pulled off her ring and held it out. “Would
you see that Marc gets this, please?”
Rebecca paused and Callie braced for another confrontation,
but then Rebecca took the ring from her cold fingers. “Yes, of course.”
“Thank you, Rebecca. I’ll send my forwarding address once
I’m settled.” But she wouldn’t. It would be better just to disappear.
After shaking hands, Callie walked out of the New York
office and never once looked back, because if she did, she would crawl back to
Marc and beg him to forgive her. And she loved him too much ever to do that.
