Cover Design by AWT Design-Emma Rider

 

COLLISION- an instance of one moving object or person striking against another.

 

Control.
I lost it once, and I damn near lost myself.

 

When she crashes in, breaking down walls and loving me, my resolve is endangered.
Falling in love with Reese was never the plan. Living without her isn’t an option.

 

If I lose control, it will change our course forever.

 

Can we survive when our worlds collide and the damage is inconceivable?

 

Buckle up, this is gonna hurt.


“Dammit, can’t you understand? I’m the storm,” I snarl into her hair.
She turns in my arms, worrying her bottom lip. She looks at me, her eyes teeming with unshed tears. “You’re the beacon.”
Her words crash over me, like waves onto the shore. “No.” I fight taking her mouth again.
Reese traces my jaw with her hand. “Why am I not enough?”
My chest tightens, and I feel dizzy. She needs to stay away from me. I’m no good for her. I can’t even kiss her without losing control.
“No, Reese. I’m not.” I push her away and step around her.
She grabs my arm, making me hesitate from her pull. “What was this? Why are you acting this way?” I continue to walk away. “You can’t kiss me like that and walk away as if I don’t matter.”
I turn on her, spinning her against the wall as I pin her arms above her head. Slowly running my hand up her thigh, gripping it, I hitch her leg over my hip and grind into her. Her full breasts heave, making me hard in an instant.
I trail my lips over her jaw, and her nipples pebble in response. I groan from our closeness. I nip her ear, and she moans. I growl. “This. Reese? Is this what you want?” I grind my hips into her pelvis hard.
“Yes, Walker.” Her head lulls. She pushes her hips into mine, and my mouth waters.
“You don’t know what you’re asking for,” I grunt, thrusting into her.
She turns her face to me, her warm breath washing over me. “So, tell me.”
I brush her lips with mine just as reality crashes in. “You don’t even know me.” I release my hold on her, pausing while she gets her balance.
“Fine, tell me. Say something. Anything.” Tears brim her eyes as the inability to speak grips me. Reese leans her head against mine, wrapping her hands around my wrists. “Don’t leave.”
I wince, turning my head to the side. “I can’t.”
“Why, Walker?” she demands.
My breath quickens. She breaks me down inside. Trembling, I remove her hands, my mouth going dry. “You’re in love with someone else.” My muscles tighten, and my jaw sets in determination. “Besides, I’m the worst thing for you.”
I release her, walking away from her as fast as my feet will carry me. I throw the doors open with Reese on my heels. Candy stands at the entrance with another man, but I don’t care. I have to show Reese who I am.
“Walker. Stop, please,” Reese calls behinds me. I hurry past Riley and Ava with a shake of my head, but I’m brought up short when Thayer steps in my way.
“Walker, stay.”
Her words ring in my ears. Bile rises in my throat. “I can’t. Won’t.” I step around her, taking Candy by the hand. The smirk on her face tells me who she’s looking at. “Don’t you fucking dare, Candy,” I growl at her and help her out the door.

#Promo Bulletproof Butterfly by Anna Brooks #giveaway

Title: Bulletproof Butterfly
Author: Anna Brooks
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 16, 2017 
I wasn’t a rookie, but I made a mistake because I was selfish, impulsive, and headstrong.

 

I was also in love.

 

My desire for her overwhelmed me. Consumed me. Distracted me.

To protect her, I stood motionless as my partner pried her from the security of my arms. I watched as she fought his hold. I even listened when she screamed that she hated me.

For years I’ve been patient, I’ve been smart, and I’ve gone by the book. But now… it’s finally over.

It’s time to get my girl back.

When I show up to reclaim what’s mine, I discover she’s not ready to forgive me quite yet… but that’s okay, because I have no problem reminding her just how good it used to be, even if I have to show her over and over again.

What I do have a problem with is the guy who’s been trying to take my place. Because here’s the thing, I’ve waited too long to have her in my arms again to have anybody stand in my way… and I’m done following the rules.

Head over and enter the Giveaway

Clay calls to me, and I scurry over to him behind the bar. “What happened?”
“Alcohol and testosterone.” He shakes his head. “Cops are on their way.”
My heart jumps.
My stomach flips.
My palms sweat.
And I wait. A few minutes pass and a cop walks in. Then another. Followed by a third. None of them the man whose face is burned into the cerebral cortex of my brain. I try to shake the thought of the hot cop away, but my mind refuses to comply, and my hormones go directly against the order.
I step out of the way as Clay exits the bar to talk to them, and I turn to head back to the hall, but then it happens. In slow motion, the front door opens, and he walks in. Commanding. Dominating the space he consumes.
He whips his head up, and our eyes lock. I stumble, my back slamming into the cash register.
Without taking his concentration off me, he strides in my direction. The intensity of his attention is suffocating. I sharply draw in a gulp of air because he’s going to be in front of me in a second. Close enough to touch. To smell again.
He ignores another officer calling him and comes at me, stopping even closer than earlier. His arms raise, and the rough callouses on his fingers abrade my cheeks when he holds my face in his hands. “Are you okay?”
My lips part. Words form on my tongue but won’t roll off.
“Livvie.” He leans down so he’s eye level with me. “You okay?”
My heart hammers.
Thud.
Thud.
Thud.
“Yes.” I practically moan, and we sway closer together. His thighs rub against mine, and he’s close enough that if I took a deep breath, my hardened nipples could seek relief from brushing against his chest.
A moment is all it takes. Time suspends and the air around us is without gravity as I float from a single touch. I don’t know exactly what it is, but something is happening between us. Something big.
“Ah! Motherfucker!”
A man yells, and I jump as Jay reacts before I can blink. He turns around, blocking me from seeing anything except his tense and muscular back. Grabbing me with one hand behind his back, he reaches for his gun with the other.
Shielding me.
A moment of panic surges through me, but when his shoulders relax and he lowers his hand from the gun on his belt, my head falls forward to land on the center of his back. His fingers flex on my hip, assuring me everything is okay—or at least he’ll make sure of it—and a state of lust immediately replaces my fear. So powerful it makes me whimper.
He turns around but remains close and lifts my chin, causing my head to tilt up so I lock eyes with his. “I need to see you later.”
“Okay.” I need him to see me. I want to see him, too.
“I’m off in two hours. Will you be home then?”
One hundred and twenty minutes. “Yes,” I whisper.
“Jesus.” He steps back and takes no shame in devouring me with his eyes. “Christ. Be ready for me, Livvie.”
Anna began writing when she thought the world would want to hear her sick lyrics through song. Since then, she’s realized her childhood dream wasn’t so far-fetched, just misguided. Now she writes romance with real emotions and happy endings. If Anna isn’t writing or reading, she can be found by a space heater painting her nails and drinking a ridiculous amount of Diet Dr Pepper. She also likes to hang out with her husband and two boys.

#promotour Renascence by Alana Sapphire @ejbookpromos

Title: Renascence
Series: Death Dealers MC, Book Five
Author: Alana Sapphire
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: October 30, 2017

 

Renascence (rēˈnasns) 
The revival of something that has been dormant.

***EMILY***
I’m going to make all your fantasies come true.

If anyone could fulfill that promise, it’s Venom, the hot biker who made it. He’s crude, crass, and has a filthy mouth, but I’m drawn to him. After everything I’ve been through, the arrangement he offers seems to be exactly what I need. What I didn’t expect is for him to be the answer to my prayers, healing me in ways I never thought possible. He awakens something in me I thought long dead. Will he ever want more, or am I fooling myself by thinking he could settle for someone like me?

***VENOM***
I wanted Emily the moment I saw her.
All I could imagine was what I’d do to her if I got her in my bed. The more I get to know her, the more I see how deep her wounds are. She’s fragile. As much as I crave her body, bringing her into my world could break her, and not just emotionally. 
I can’t let that happen.
I won’t.
Men like me don’t get a happily ever after. Emily is better off without me, and I pray she doesn’t learn that the hard way.
Alana Sapphire has a great love for writing and music, and always finds a way to combine the two. Her books, though in various subcategories, are all in the Erotic Romance genre. Like a little suspense with your romance? So does Alana! Pick up one of her books and you’ll get romance, suspense, drama, and lots of sexy time. With books ranging from MC to paranormal, an Alana story is out there for you. Her characters are like old friends—near and dear to her heart—and she hopes for her readers to enjoy them as much as she does.

Quick & Dirty
By Whitley Cox

BLURB:

The best way to get over a millionaire is to get under a billionaire.

Humiliated and angry Parker Ryan is ready to erase every last trace of her ex from her mind, body, and soul. Of course she can be adventurous. Exciting. Sexy. No matter what he said. She needs an exorcism, and Tate McAllister and the island of Moorea in Tahiti are just the man and place to do it. Tate is perfect for the job: billionaire resort owner, scuba instructor, philanthropist and, let’s face it, sex god. So maybe the affair isn’t the wisest move when she has to write her damn feature piece and review the hotel, but if he’s ready and willing to wow her in and out of the bedroom for the next ten days, the fling will be worth it. Parker can get the job done and have Tate fulfill all her fantasies, and she won’t, repeat won’t fall in love with the man. Even if every part of her wants to.

Excerpt:

“You know,” he started, making my head snap up, “I don’t see why we can’t make the most of your time here. Make one another feel good for the next ten days. You said you’re coming off a rough breakup, and I’m unattached. Isn’t it pretty much necessary to have an endless stream of mind-blowing, meaningless sex after you break up with someone?”
An endless stream of mind-blowing, meaningless sex?
No matter how hot the sauna was, my cheeks were hotter.
He moved over on the bench and pushed himself up, his forearms flexing with the weight of having to hold up his body. A second later, he was next to me on the bench.
“I mean, if you say ‘no,’ I’ll obviously respect your decision and back off.” His lips twisted, and he reached out and fingered a strand of my damp hair. “But something tells me you’re not totally sure if you want to say ‘no.’ Am I right?” His voice was dark and low, almost gravelly. It kissed across my skin, licking and biting, tasting and teasing and I wasn’t even touching him.
I swallowed and squeezed my thighs together, biting back a whimper from the ache I felt deep in my belly and my swollen clit.
“Quick and dirty, wasn’t that what you said?” His voice now tortured me. Every word, every syllable sent shards of need directly to my erogenous zones and made them spark alive.
All I could do was nod as I watched a sinfully delicious bead of sweat emerge on his sculpted upper lip. I wanted to lick it off; I wanted to lick every damn inch of the man.

“Well, ten days is quick, and what I’d like to do to you is all kinds of dirty, so . . . ” His eyes flicked up to mine while his hand landed on my bare thigh and squeezed. I inhaled abruptly from the heat of his touch. I couldn’t stop it, I couldn’t control it, they had a bloody life of their own; my eyes drifted down once again to his crotch. I rolled my bottom lip between my teeth and watched as the bulge in his Speedo started to grow, lying thick and eager against his pelvic bone, desperate to break free of its Lycra prison.

Kentucky Running Teaser 4

excerpt-1-1

“Fuck!” he muttered when her hand landed on his leg.

“Are you all right? You don’t seem to be doing okay. You’ve been quiet for the last six or seven miles. Is something bothering …”

Groaning, he pulled up at the next truck stop. He needed relief. Having her as close as she was would kill him soon if he didn’t relieve some of the pressure.

“I’ll be right back.”

Without a backward glance or another word, he hopped down out of the cab and tore off in the direction of the restroom. It was the middle of the night so he knew the customers in the little convenience store would be practically deserted. He head in that direction versus the standard stop hoping the restroom didn’t reek too much. As soon as he was in the restroom, he checked the one other stall. Once he noted the thing was empty, he got down to business. The nature of all of his thoughts along the last stretch of their journey had him standing at attention and just about ready for release. He just needed a few good pumps. Getting the sneak peek he’d had of her ample tits then line of her lace panties gave him the visual he needed to make this quick. The relieved groan from simply allowing his cock to spring free from its confinement filled the space and echoed back to him. He could see that the head was a wet from the slight leakage. Wrapping his hand around his shaft, he got busy. Thinking of stripping Kentucky and the gorgeous sight of her taut body had his balls immediately tightening.

Gideon groaned then moaned her name. For a moment, he thought he’d heard her respond. When he looked up, no one was in the doorway so he continued with his ministrations. It wasn’t until an extra hand joined his that he realized he wasn’t actually alone. Looking down, he saw those eyes. Those gorgeous blue eyes of hers were peering up at him as she wrapped both hands around him and guided the stiff head of his shaft to her parted lips. He was too far gone to stop what happened next. There was nothing in his body willing to fight against what she was offering, especially when her perfect little tongue darted out and swirled the tip of him. When her warm mouth wrapped around him and began to reel his length in, he was a goner. Fighting was a lost cause. Her cheeks hollowed like a fucking “Blow Job Queen” and he felt a new urge.

Blazing #BlogTour: Esme’s Wish by Elizabeth Foster

Esme's Wish cover[4].jpgEsme’s Wish
by Elizabeth Foster
Genre: YA Fantasy/Mystery
Release Date: October 2017
Odyssey Books

Summary:

This was her last chance. Her hand twisted high in the air.

When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver objects at her father’s wedding, her protest is dismissed as the impulsive reaction of a stubborn, selfish teenager. Everyone else has accepted the loss of Esme’s mother – so why can’t she?

But Esme is suspicious. She is sure that others are covering up the real reason for her mother’s disappearance – that ‘lost at sea’ is code for something more terrible, something she has a right to know.

After Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia, the truth begins to unfold. With her newfound friends, Daniel and Lillian, Esme retraces her mother’s steps in the glittering canal city of Esperance, untangling the threads of Ariane’s double life. But the more Esme discovers about her mother, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all…

Book Trailer:

Advance Praise:

“I found the story very unique […] this book overtook my expectations […] A beautiful, fantastical mystery. I would love to read multiple books following this one.” – Tamsyn, 15

“I was enchanted by the world, awed by the creatures and as motivated as Esme to find out what happened to her mother.” – Angie, 14

Esme’s Wish is a captivating, excellently-written novel. Author Elizabeth Foster did a great job of keeping me reading as I followed Esme’s journey to investigate the disappearance of her mother, a brilliant painter. […]  This colorful, well-constructed tale is as much detective story as fantasy and deftly blends both elements into a page-turning plot that hooks the reader in. I was fascinated by the creative water world of Aeolia, described in Elizabeth Foster’s limpid, seductive prose.  –Sarah Scheele for Readers’ Favorite  5 STARS

Excerpt:

Outside, confetti clouded the air, sticking to skin damp from the summer heat. Children, dizzy with joy at being released from the confines of the church, chased each other round and round in circles. Esme’s father, Aaron, and his bride, Penelope, lingered by the entrance of the church, greeting the slipstream of guests that issued from within.

Penelope, swathed in white, glittered and shone like the brightest star in a constellation. Aaron stood stiffly by her side, tugging awkwardly at the cuffs of his suit. He spotted Esme and started toward her, but a glacial stare from Penelope pulled him back to her side.

Esme threaded her way through the crowded courtyard, heading to the one place she knew she would be left alone. The guests’ animated conversations stopped abruptly as she passed by, but every frozen smile and stifled sentence spoke volumes.

We’ve all moved on, they seemed to say. Why can’t you?

The peal of bells followed Esme to the far end of the church grounds, where lichen-licked tombstones leaned in toward the earth. A row of cenotaphs stood beneath a sprawling oak tree, commemorating those whose bodies had never been found. The leaves shivered in the breeze, casting a mosaic of shifting light over the stones below. Esme paused by the last tablet, dated seven years ago.

About the Author

Blazing #BlogTour: The Year of the Knife by G.D. Penman

The Year of the Knife
G.D. Penman
Published by: Meerkat Press
Publication date: November 28th 2017
Genres: Adult, Thriller, Urban Fantasy

Agent -Sully- Sullivan is one of the top cops in the Imperial Bureau of Investigation. A veteran witch of the British Empire who isn’t afraid to use her magical skills to crack a case. But Sully might need more than a good education and raw power to stop the string of grisly murders that have been springing up across the American Colonies. Every one of them marked by the same chilling calling card, a warning in the form of a legion of voices screaming out through the killers’ mouths: -It IS tHe YEAr oF the KNife.-

Sully’s investigation will drag her away from the comforts of home in New Amsterdam, the beautiful but useless hyacinth macaw that used to be her boss, and the loving arms of her undead girlfriend, in a thrilling race against time, demonic forces and a shadowy conspiracy that will do anything to keep its hold on power and ensure that Sully takes their secrets to her grave, as soon as possible.

G.D. Penman’s imaginative The Year of the Knife is a fun, fast-paced urban fantasy mystery with an engaging set of characters, most notably Agent Sully of the Imperial Bureau of Investigation.

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble

The Year of the Knife Playlist

I have no idea how to make a playlist for a book, so I am just going to grab all the music I was listening to while writing it and try to shuffle it into piles.

General Music

Because of the divergent history of The Year of the Knife, music that we take for granted as old hat is only just coming to the fore. In the American colonies this means that country music and bluegrass are the next big thing. Of course, culture and music are deeply intertwined, and urbanisation has already happened, so these bluegrass bands can’t be singing purely about rural experiences.

Thunderstruck- Steve and the Seagulls

Rocketman- Iron Horse

In The Pines- Grateful Dead

Songs for Sully

If Sully knew that somebody was making a playlist for her, she would probably be furious. She has some problems with sentimentality.

If I Had A Heart- Fever Ray

Long Live The Chief- Jidenna

Paint it Black- Rolling Stones

Songs for Marie

The relationship between Sully and Marie might be the heart of the book, and indeed the whole series of stories surrounding it, but it isn’t all positive… or even mostly positive. Love is funny like that.

King Harvest- Dancing in the Moonlight

Chandelier- Sia

Closer- The Tiny

Songs for Eugene the Sailor Doll

This creepy little bastard would probably love to have a playlist, if someone explained what a playlist was. He would probably listen to it on loop while staring at you.

Bring Your Whole Crew- DMX

Devil Went Down to Georgia- Primus

Down With The Sickness- Richard Cheese

Author Bio:

G D Penman writes Speculative Fiction. He lives in Scotland with his partner and children, some of whom are human. He is a firm believer in the axiom that any story is made better by dragons. His beard has won an award. If you have ever read a story with Kaiju and queer people, it was probably one of his. In those few precious moments that he isn’t parenting or writing he likes to watch cartoons, play video and tabletop games, read more books than are entirely feasible and continue his quest to eat the flesh of every living species.

Dracula, Quasimodo, Dr. Jekyll…they are the monsters that stalk your nightmares. Haunting the pages of books for centuries, they are the embodiment of all that emerges from the shadows when you close your eyes. They are the deformed, the hated and the incomprehensible, fated to walk in the darkness alone forever.

Or are they?

From twelve amazing authors, come twelve new tales, stories that go beyond the blighted surface to see into the heart of the beast. They are stories of acceptance and redemption, love and passion… and chance encounters that forge the love of a lifetime.

Stop running. Stop hiding. See past the monster. Look into the face of fear and you might just find the soul of a man.
