EXCERPT
Her feet hurt, and she’d moved beyond stickiness from the heat over two hours earlier. Faith was also sick beyond tears at knocking on doors no one bothered answering. At the thought of being forced to stand even one second longer in the blazing sun, Faith beat her fist harder against the solid oak door. It was standing in between her and Adam. That was unacceptable. She waited a moment longer. When she thought she’d throw her arms up in defeat, the door swung open. A disgruntled-looking Adam stared out at her. Faith let her eyes travel the length of him. His hair stood on end and his shirtless state threatened to make her swallow her tongue. His chest and stomach appeared as if they’d been carved from stone. The baggy gray shorts he wore, might have at one time been sweatpants. That is, before someone took a pair of scissors to them. They were more appealing than the most expensive of suits. Holy shit. She had to tear her eyes away. Not hers.
Faith was almost certain she’d pulled Adam away from his workout by her incessant knocking. Unfortunately, he was so goddamn yummy she forgot why she was there. She was staring at the line of hair that disappeared beneath his waistband until he cleared his throat. Damn it. She thought she’d already forced her eyes away. Nope. She was still gazing at the deep lines etched into his stomach. Lifting her gaze back to his, Adam’s eyebrows rose in question, but his smoke-colored eyes distracted her once more.
“I’m assuming this has something to do with Serenity,” he said, when she remained silent.
Oh yes, Serenity, Faith reminded herself. She was here about the sister who’d snagged him.

Sacrifice of Innocence


Blurb:

A cult has been killing children for its rituals and only one cop knows who they are. Detective Stan

Brookshire knows but his past keeps people from believing in him. Can he rise above the stigma that

shrouds his past and stop a cult from taking yet another innocent child from her mother’s arms before

its too late?

About the Author:

Allison Cosgrove was born and raised in a suburb of Toronto, Ontario. A married mother of three daughters, she runs her own business by day and creates her own worlds by night. She enjoys spending time with her husband and daughters hiking in the woods or sitting by the fire reading a good book. She has had the love of reading and writing detective mysteries from the age of twelve but it has only been since the birth of her youngest that she has gotten serious about crafting some of her own works for others to enjoy. She credits her family and friends with being the driving force that has given her the strength to breathe life into her books.

Praise for Sacrifice of Innocence:

"Allison has created a memorable detective with Stan Brookshire. The premise of the story is, a cult has been killing children and Stan has to stop them before it's too late. The police believe they have the right man in custody but another kidnapping casts that into doubt. The trial is not going well, and despite the hope that the child was abducted by a copycat, Stan begins to believe that something more is happening. The mother of the child gets involved, and slowly the protagonists realize that this is not a standard kidnapping.

It was a well-crafted mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat. But the real reason I kept reading was I felt like I really got to know Detective Stan Brookshire through the story. I loved his interactions with the different characters and how he becomes emotionally involved.

I can't wait for the follow-up and to read more about Stan Brookshire. I would strongly recommend it to anybody who has grown tired of the other detective series out there."

~Joel Mark Harris, author of 1000 Bayonets

Ugly Eternity


By day, Cade works as a mechanic. By night, he’s the drummer for a popular nightclub band. Music has always been his greatest love and biggest dream. That is, until Cade meets Dylan.
For Dylan, working as head bartender for Club Khronos is the ultimate job opportunity. There’s no way he could’ve foreseen how torturous the position would become. Six months of craving Cade has driven Dylan insane. No matter what he tries, Dylan can’t get a clear read on Cade. When Cade does finally make his move, Dylan realizes a fate worse than never having the man of his dreams—being kept a secret. 


--Warning: This book is intended for readers over the age of 18.

“You still have nine minutes and forty-five seconds left.”
Dylan snorted. “That’s a rather specific amount of time.”
“Eight minutes and fifty seconds now.” Yep. He heard himself, but Cade couldn’t stop. The slight twisting of Dylan’s lips was the only indication he was biting back a laugh. He clasped his hands behind his back.
“All right. We can wait.” Cade was wrong—the laughter was in Dylan’s tone as well. “That is, unless you’d rather leave. I’m usually the one who stays late. I think I’m good to cut out a bit early this one time.”
The final word barely left Dylan’s lips before Cade was ushering him out the back. The cool night air brushed his skin as the metal door slammed closed behind them.
“I’m parked over there,” Cade said, pointing out his car. Dylan didn’t miss a step as he headed toward the black ’68 Chevelle SS. “You’re not even going to ask where we’re going, are you?” Cade couldn’t hide the pride in his voice. Dylan made him feel… wanted. He didn’t know how else to describe it.
“Don’t care,” Dylan answered without breaking stride.
“You should,” Cade said before he could stop himself. “I intend to fuck you.”
Dylan spun, causing Cade to draw up short. He caught a flash of determination crossing Dylan’s face before the man pounced. Delicious lips collided with his. They were relentless. Cade’s bottom lip stung as Dylan’s teeth sank into it and tugged. When he gasped, Dylan opened his mouth over his, swallowing the sound, and swiping the roof of his mouth with his tongue. Cade tried chasing after him, but Dylan was too quick. He swiped the inside of his cheek before disappearing and sucking on his lip once more. A moan rose in Cade’s throat. His cock wept.
Dylan’s palms landed on either side of his face, controlling their kiss. All Cade could do was cling to the man’s hips. When he thought he’d scream in frustration, Dylan finally gave in, brushing his tongue boldly across Cade’s. Holy hell. He had a stud in his tongue. Cade thought he might come in his jeans at the thought alone. By the time Dylan pulled away, Cade was panting. Dylan swiped his thumb along Cade’s bottom lip, his eyes followed the motion, holding Cade captivated.
“If you’re going to fuck me, I wish you’d get on with it already.” Dylan’s gaze met his, leaving Cade speechless in the face of his open desire. “Because I’ve already had you a thousand different ways in my mind, and I’m damn tired of waiting.”

Love Repeated @Nancy_Corrigan


Love Repeated
By Nancy Corrigan

Blurb

Young lovers, Kyle and Ronnie, had the world ahead of them at seventeen. Stubbornness, misunderstanding and a mother’s influence forced them to forge their own paths. A decade later, neither can find love.
Ronnie always thought it was easier to move on than deal with the pain and hurt of past mistakes. She made plenty of them, but so did Kyle and her parents. Kyle knows the moment he touches Ronnie that he still loves her. He won’t repeat the past and let her leave him a second time.
It takes a tragedy and a secret to reunite them, but their passion returns in a rush along with regret and guilt. To have love, they’ll have to overcome their issues—before her mother’s sin takes Ronnie away, once and for all.
Short blurb
Sparks fly when Kyle's ex shows up in town. Whether she'll stay—or survive staying—is another matter entirely.

Excerpt  (PG)
She raised her gaze to his. The bruises on her face twisted his gut, but her hazel eyes mesmerized him, exactly as they had a lifetime ago. His words got stuck in his throat. Finally, she shook her head, breaking the spell she’d cast over him. “Ten minutes in town and I run into you. Talk about luck.”
“Good luck, I’d say.” He motioned toward the bruise on her cheek. “What happened?”
She folded her arms under her breasts and shifted her gaze to his chin. “Armed robbery.”
She lied. He could see it in her eyes. He stepped closer. “Don’t bother lying to me, Ronnie. I know you too well. What really happened?”
Her brows pinched. “I haven’t seen you in years, Kyle. You don’t know me anymore.”
He supposed she was right. He’d thought they’d spend their life together. She’d proved him wrong. Still, she drew him like no other woman ever had.
He brushed a finger over her bruised skin. “Come on, doll. Talk to me.”
She grinned. “I always loved that nickname, you know.”
He matched her smile, couldn’t help it. “And you’re changing the subject.”
“Armed robbery, like I said. I really don’t want to talk about it.” She snatched her purse from where it had fallen on the ground and pulled a hundred-dollar bill from her wallet. She held it out to him.
He glanced from it to her face. “If that’s for saving you, keep it. I don’t want your money. Never did.”
She rolled her eyes. “Please, Kyle. I didn’t come back to this shithole town to fight with you. I was wondering if you could go back into the bar and pay for my drink. I’d rather not go in there again.”

He worked his jaw and fought his irrational anger. It wasn’t her fault he’d reacted like a jerk, but he’d always hated the fact that she had more money. He took the cash and crumpled it in his hands. “Why did you?”

To Avenge by Samantha Holt

To Avenge - Tour Banner  

BOOK INFORMATION

TITLE – To Avenge Her Highland Warrior SERIES – Highland Fae Chronicles #3 AUTHOR – Samantha Holt GENRE – Historical Romance PUBLICATION DATE – 18th October LENGTH (Pages/# Words) - 60000

 

BOOK SYNOPSIS

Lorna lost everything to war. Her home, her wealth... her lover. And now she wants revenge.

When her hasty plan throws her at the mercy of her enemy’s men, she holds little hope of returning to her kin and fears death is around the corner. But could her salvation lie in the arms of her dark captor?

Logan has little time to be dealing with a stubborn noble woman. His orders are to prepare for war. His laird—the man he owes his life to—intends to join forces with the Norse and bring a battle to Scotland that will see the fate of the country forever changed. Scarred, and with no memory of his past, Logan is determined to forge a new future for himself as well as prove his loyalty to the laird.

But the beautiful lass has him questioning his previous life and his goals. When she starts claiming he once loved her, he knows he’s being manipulated and she’s taking advantage of his memory loss. So why is it so hard to resist the idea of having once been her lover?

With the threat of impending war—a battle that promises to bring slaughter to her family—can Lorna persuade Logan to believe her, and is the bitter man he’s become even worth saving?

Whatever the outcome of the battle, a certain interfering faery is resolved to see fate back on its correct path. And that means forcing Lorna and Logan together—no matter their differences.

EXCERPT

Logan clenched his jaw and the roar of the storm sounded closer. He had to leave yet his feet refused to move. Why stay? Why torture himself further? His heart pounded against his chest. In the next flash, he was close once more. Within touching distance. He saw her features more clearly now. The distress in her eyes, the golden strands of hair curling around her pointed chin. The fan of her lashes lowered and lifted in one slow sweep until her gaze locked onto his. “Logan,” she whispered, voice tremulous, but he did not know if that was a plea for him to leave or come closer. “Logan,” she tried again. The shaky quality of her voice pulled at his gut. His gaze traced the curl that flowed over one shoulder and down, caressing her gentle curves like a lover—like he once had apparently. His palms tingled with the need to feel the soft give of her flesh beneath him. The next flash highlighted her trembling form. The fragile hollow of her neck fluttered with her pulse and his mouth grew dry with the need to press his lips to it. Damn her. Like a siren, she lured him in. He almost backed away. How long they had been standing like that he knew not. It may have been moments—a mere few flashes of lightening—but the thickening of the air between them seemed to slow time. The tremble of her lips gripped his heart, squeezed it hard and painfully. An aggravating need to take care of her ate into him, softened him to her. Logan closed the gap. The next rumble lined up with him gripping her upper arms and pushing her back against the wall. She gasped, the sound clear to him even as the skies crashed about them. Hot anger mingled with need. It burned through him and set his nerve endings alight. How dare she have such a hold over him, how dare she make him want her? Soft, delicate breasts pressed against him. Slim thighs quaked against his. With a hiss of breath, he lowered his mouth to hers as she stared up at him. Before his lips met hers, her eyes flashed with a plea, but was she begging him to kiss her or leave her be? He couldn’t decide what he wanted either, but she left him with little choice. The first touch made him wonder if he had not indeed been struck by lightning. Frissons shot through him, curled into his blood and fired his fury and lust. Lorna released a tiny sound and he pressed his lips hard to hers this time. She whimpered. Her lips felt hot beneath his. Her taste threatened to drown him. Satisfaction settled in his gut when she arched into him. He kept hold of her arms, allowing little movement but that up thrust of breasts and hips into him made him hiss and press harder. He coaxed her lips apart, and she gasped when he invaded the heated recesses of her mouth. Logan kissed her deeply, with little apology. He needed this, needed her.
