EXCERPT:

There are over three hundred breweries at this year’s craft brew fest. Each brewery has at least three beers on tap—that’s nine hundred beers that I won’t be tasting.

Dillan was up and out of our hotel room before eight this morning. He was invited to the brewer’s breakfast, where a bunch of men sit around talking about hops like it’s cool.

I walk to the expo around noon; it’s already packed. I maneuver my belly through the crowd to our booth. The line for samples is long.

“Hey, Rusty,” I call through the wall of people. “Where’s Dillan?”

Rusty looks up from the women so obviously flirting with him. “He’s sniffing around the Black Diamond Brewery table. Wait here, he’ll be back soon.”

I move past the group and join Rusty on the other side of the table. “Should I help?”

“Do you know anything about the beer?”

“Nope.”

“Just sit over there.” He points to a chair in the corner.

Rusty fields questions like a pro and handles the crowd fairly well for a little while. As more people arrive, he can’t pour beer fast enough.

“Okay, you’re up.” He waves me over. “You pour and I’ll serve.”

I turn to the taps and grab a cup. “What do I do?”

He gives me a quick rundown of what is what.

“Just keep pouring until I tell you to stop. I want at least fifteen or twenty of each lined up on this table.” He points to the table in front of the taps.

After fifteen minutes, I decide pouring sucks. I can’t get the foam right. I tilt too much. The cups are lined up with uneven pours. I quickly realize nobody cares. They’re all tipsy and enamored by my brother.

“Is this swill any good?” A familiar voice says, and my heart stops.

“Well I’m biased, sir. But I’m also pretty confident.” Rusty takes a cup from the table. “Try this, you’ll never drink Shasta again.”

I peek over my shoulder and see Jase’s uncle Joe sipping our beer wearing a Shasta Brewing hat.

“Quit pretending you don’t love Howlin’ Ale.” Lucky walks up behind Joe.

I spin back around and pour another cup. Maybe he won’t recognize me. I’m bigger than I was the last time he saw me.

“I’ve never had it from a tap,” Joe says. “Just them bottles we used to get from your driver.”

“Really?” Rusty asks. “Which driver is that?”

Oh shit. Oh shit.

“Hey, babe. I think that cup is full.” Dillan suddenly appears beside me.

I look at the beer flowing out of the tap and all over the table. “Oh shit!” I step back and drop the cup, splashing beer all over my pants and shoes.

Dillan looks at me like I’m crazy. “Are you okay? Do you want to sit down?” He motions to the chair. I don’t move. If I turn around, Joe will see my face.

“Looks like someone’s been sampling the beer,” Joe jokes.

Dillan looks over my head and smiles. He’s back in sales mode. “Not this one, she’s seven months pregnant.”

“Well, congratulations,” Joe says.

“Thank you,” Dillan replies. He nudges me to turn and be polite. I don’t move.

“We’ve taken up enough of their time,” Lucky says. I detect a hint of anxiety in his tone. He figured it out.

“Okay, okay,” Joe says reluctantly. He thanks Rusty, and I hear him ask Lucky where the bathroom is. Right before their voices fade into the crowd, he says his name: “Make sure you let Jase know Howlin’ Ale is here. He’s a big fan.”

“Yeah sure, Joe,” Lucky pacifies him. He has no intention on telling Jase I’m here. Not if he’s smart.

“Why the hell are you even back here?” Dillan ushers me to the empty chair. He looks at the mess I made. “Rusty, you should’ve called Drake or me to help.”

When Rusty doesn’t answer, I look past Dillan to my brother. He’s serving a beer to the last person on Earth I ever thought I’d see at this table.

“Rusty, clean that up, I’ll take over.” Dillan walks to the table and hands Jase another cup. “If you like the amber, you’ll love the red.”

Jase’s eyes flit to mine as he takes the cup. “Thanks.”

What is he doing here? Why would he intentionally put himself in danger?

“Sis, what the fuck?” Rusty whispers as he mops the floor. “Should I do something?”

I shake my head no. We can’t cause any suspicion. As far as Dillan is concerned, Jase is just another festival goer.

“What do you think?” Dillan asks.

Jase sets the cup down. “I think I’m in love.” He smiles at me, and I gasp.

Rusty steps in front of me and coughs. “It’s dusty in here.”

When Dillan turns to look at Rusty, Jase winks at me. I don’t know if I want to kill him or kiss him. The intensity of the moment finally catches up to me, and I begin to laugh. Rusty starts laughing too, but it’s more of a manic, what-are-you-laughing-at kind of laugh.

“You guys are weird,” Dillan addresses me and my brother then turns back to Jase. “Sorry, she’s a little hormonal, and he’s a little…”

“Homo,” Rusty yells.

Jase laughs, and so does Dillan. For a brief second, the worst moment of my life doesn’t seem so bad. Until it is.

“There you are, Jase.” I look up at the sound of Joe’s voice and see Lucky chasing after him.

“Joe, let’s check out Black Bear,” Lucky suggests. “We’ve already been to this one.” He tries to turn Joe away, but it’s too late.

“Kali! How the hell are ya?” Joe yells. I turn slowly and brace as a wave of fear washes over our booth. “Oh hell, girl, you’re about ready to pop!” He laughs. “Who’s the lucky fella?”

“That’d be me.” Dillan moves between us, blocking me from view. “How exactly do you know Kalysia?” He annunciates my name.

Lucky, Rusty, Jase, Joe, and I all start talking at the same time. Dillan only hears Joe.

“She broke down last winter, and Jase found her stranded on the highway. He brought her back to my motel for the night. She’s a fine girl. You’re a lucky man.” Joe holds his hand out to Dillan.

Dillan shakes it as he turns to look back at me. “And which one of you found her on the road?”

Excerpt:

 

“The sunlight was intense after a half hour in that gloomy space, but I squinted hard and kept moving toward a narrow set of steps down to the parking lot. Grady walked a few paces behind me, and if he heard the crinkle of paper as I moved, he elected not to say anything.

Grady hit the remote to his truck and grabbed for the passenger side door, his hand light on my elbow as he helped me up. Paper crackled as my butt hit the seat and Grady’s eyes narrowed. Without a word, he slammed my door and went around to the driver’s side, climbing up into the cab and stabbing the keys into the ignition.

“So, I—” I hesitated as I shifted in my seat and my movement was accompanied by the distinct sound of cardboard bending.

“No,” Grady muttered, and clicked on the radio. “No talking.”

“But—”

“Shh.” Grady put a finger to his lips, his eyes still on the road. “Any minute you’re going to tell me about the felony crime you just committed. And then I’m going to have to deal with the fact that I was an accessory to a felony crime.”

“Umm, yeah.” I reached around to the back of my pants and eased the file folder up from my waistband, working it out slowly so as to not lose anything as Grady headed up the hillside toward his house. As I brought it around to look at it, the red block letters damning me to years of incarceration should I get caught, a muscle ticked in Grady’s jaw.

“You stole classified documents.” He shook his head from side to side.

I looked up at Grady and then down at the mangled file with the red Top Secret heading. I took a corner of the front sheet and ripped across the width of the page, separating the words “Top Secret” from the rest of the paper.

“They’re declassified now.” I crumpled up the classification and shoved it in my pocket.

Grady sighed.

I shrugged and opened the file.”

Bombastic #BookBlitz: Gears Of Fate by Wilbert Stanton

Displaying GoF.jpg

Gears of Fate
Wilbert Stanton
(Forgotten Gods #1)
Published by: Curiosity Quills Press
Publication date: June 20th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Mythology, Young Adult

Centuries have passed since the Fey conquered Earth, forcing mankind and gods alike to flee to the sky city Olympus. Forgotten gods walk amongst man, lost and powerless. Little do they suspect a second Fey war looms, and an unlikely duo will set in motion the gears of fate.

Zak Walker is a fringe rat living in the slums who would do anything to protect his sister, Alice. His neglectful father threatens to consign him to a life away from home on an airship, but he yearns for his life to mean something more than drudgery.

Princess Seneca Rose is the last surviving member of the Seelie royals. They tried to establish peace with mankind, but fell to the forces of Queen Mob and the Unseelie Court. Fleeing for her life, Seneca arrives on Olympus in hopes of uniting the forgotten gods against the oncoming Fey.

Zak couldn’t care less about the fate of Olympus, until faeries kidnap Alice. He doesn’t believe Seneca’s stories of faeries or gods, but soon has no choice but to accept their lives are intertwined. All his life, he’s dreamed of something more. If he cannot face the dangers that await down on Earth, the gods, mankind, and his sister Alice are all doomed.

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

I watched helplessly as we flew further away. Alana and Gharis, fighting furiously side by side, hadn’t noticed me getting snatched. Seneca still struggled with Francis’s pack. I had to take matters into my own hands. I struggled under my attacker’s iron grip. He had me in a tight bear hug rendering my arms useless. I thrashed about until I broke free. The rust bucket flew away, and for a moment, it felt like I could fly. Gravity had a different plan in mind.

I’m going to die.

Clouds swallowed the world; the white darkness devoured me, the gushing air made my ears pop. I’d never get to kiss Abby; I’d never become a man; Most importantly, I failed to keep Alice safe. Alice, I’m sorry.

I closed my eyes and prepared to die. Until I heard laughing. I’m cogged. The wild laughter of a maniac got closer, closer, and closer still. Seneca burst through the clouds head first, her body straightened with arms pressed tight at her sides. Goggles covered her eyes, and her smile seemed to go for miles. She caught up and wrapped her arms around me, locking her body against mine.

Displaying Wilbert.jpgAuthor Bio:

Wilbert Stanton was born and raised in New York City. From an early age, Wilbert decided he would either write books or take over the world; everything else was just a precursor to his end game.

Along the way, he has studied Psychology, English, and Computer Science. He’s held jobs in a wide range of fields and met people from all walks of life. Wilbert is constantly learning and growing as a person, in order to solidify his dreams.

In the end, world domination was a bit tedious, so he decided to focus on writing books.

Title: One Choice (Hogan
Brother’s Book #2)

Author: KL Donn
Release
Date:
June 20th, 2017
 
 
Live. Fight. Breathe.
Levi
Hogan was looking for a piece of his soul when he first entered the underground
ring. Taking men down, showing them who was Alpha gave him a high unlike any
other. 
He was happy, content, until his older brother fell in love and he saw what he
was missing.


The other half of his heart. Her pain was palpable, piercing his soul. 
A dash of color on the horizon and he found her, tackling her to the ground
wasn’t in the plan. Neither was tripping over a fucking gopher hole.
Harder. Faster. Stronger.
Hayes Morrison lived and
breathed the creed. Her life motto to push her boundaries. She was set for
gold, Olympic dreams were on the horizon.
Until an accident changed her entire world.


Crippled with pain, physically and emotionally, she’d given up hope of more.


Until him.
The cocky fighter with a
bad attitude and always saying the wrong things.
It wasn’t long until they both had One Choice to make, would they choose each
other, or settle alone?

“Give me a chance,
baby, and I’ll show you the world. Make me your choice, and I’ll worship you
for as long as you let me.”
Levi’s words rang
through her veins like a symphony. They were perfect. His gaze, as he held
hers, was spellbinding. Magical. The stars were aligning for them, and Hayes
felt a buzz in the air.
 
Amazon bestselling author of The Protectors Series and The
Possessed Series.
 
I’m never quite sure what to say here. 
So here goes…
 
I’m a Canadian girl through and through, I
love the mountains, yet I hate the snow. The summer here gets HAWT and I wish
it was year round. 
Some of my favorite things are cookie dough
ice cream from Marble Slab, every Die Hard movie made, and crime drama shows on
TV.
 
I swear like a sailor, don’t do frilly girly
things. BUT I love when my husband treats me like a queen.
 
I take photos for fun, and write to breathe. I
love to be as creative as I can, when I can.
 
These are some of my favorite things about me.
Do you wanna know the best part of me?
My family.
My mom and Grandma have supported me through
every bad decision, and cheated on the good ones. They’re strong woman who I
look up to!
 
My husband, Steven, Scuba Steve, we’ve been
together since I was 17, had our first baby, Savannah, when I was 18, and were
married when I was 19. 3 boys, Chase Liam & JD, and 12 years later our
family is complete.
Without their constant support (And sometimes
badgering) I don’t think I would be the woman I am today.

About Tory Richards

Tory Richards

I was born in Maine, but have lived most of my life in Florida where I went to school, married and raised my daughter. I retired from Disney a few years ago to focus on life, which includes spending more time with family, friends, traveling and writing. And let’s not forget my furry family. I have four cats.
I knew at the age of ten that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. Spent hours penning stories by hand until at thirteen Santa brought me a manual typewriter. Then at seventeen I got an electric one. But nothing compared to my first computer.
I write romances of all kinds. Erotic, suspense, interracial, paranormal, biker, full length, short, and novellas. But one thing you won’t find in any of my stories, a cliffhanger! And all of my books have a HEA or HEAF ending.

Bombastic #BookBlitz: Joy Ride by Cynthia Rayne

Joy Ride
Cynthia Rayne
Publication date: June 15th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance

IAN

As an English professor at an Ivy League university, I’m at the top of my profession, but something’s missing. I gave up my artistic dreams to pursue an academic career. And I’m still haunted by the scars of my past.

I enjoy breaking the rules and doing what I damn well please. And a dangerous infatuation’s blooming—Darcy’s intelligent, innocent, and virginal. I long to be her first, to teach her every wicked thing I know.

There’s just one problem—she’s my student, the ultimate forbidden fruit.

DARCY

I lead a well-ordered life with to-do lists and schedules. I always do the safe thing, make the right choices. I’ve made all my plans—got accepted into a master’s degree program, and I even have a graduate assistantship lined up.

Although, I long to be an author, like my father, but it’s not a stable career. Yet, I can’t stop thinking about seeing my name on a book cover.

To make matters worse, I keep my thinking about my sexy professor—he’s got a British accent, an attitude, and a bad boy streak. I hang on his every word. When we get close, all my barriers and rules break down. He’s encouraging me to throw caution to the wind and chase my dream.

Can I let go? Have the life I want and the man I long for?

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

As if he’d heard my silent plea, Ian kissed his way down my torso, pausing to lick my belly button. I moaned, imagining his tongue in much more intimate place.

Then he slid the button of my jeans open.

I gasped. “Wait.”

“What’s wrong? Are you having another attack?” He shook his head, as though to clear it.

“Er, no.” The embarrassment portion of this evening wasn’t over yet.

“Tell me.” He kissed my stomach.

I searched for the words. “Since we’re sharing, there’s something you should know about me.”

“Darcy, whatever it is, I can handle it.”

“I’m a virgin.” I winced, waiting for his response.

Ian groaned, long and low. His eyes widened.

“Sorry.” My cheeks burned.

“Never apologize.” Then the pleasing weight of him was gone.

“Hey. Where are you going?”

“Away from temptation—for the moment, at least.” He smirked. “So you’ve never…?”

“Nope. No one else has touched me, er, there.” I wrapped my arms around myself. “But I’ve, uh, taken matters into my own hands. I mean, this isn’t the fifties, you know? I read this article once. So I grabbed a hand mirror and then—”

“Hold on, pet. Don’t distract me with decadent images—one thing at a time.”

“Okay.” Did this mean we were done with sexy times this evening?

“Although, I want to hear the rest of your story. Better yet, you can give me a demonstration at a later date.”

And I blushed for a different reason. “So what do you think?”

“First off, New York men must be daft. You’re a beauty with brains. How did you get to the ripe old age of twenty-one untouched?

“I’ve been busy…?”

He laughed. “Item number two. We can’t have sex tonight.”

My turn to groan. Seriously? I’d screwed up my courage, picked out sex clothes, come over to his place, survived a meltdown, kissed him, and now he was going to turn me down?

Unbelievable.

“It’s not a big deal. I’m ready, Ian.” I leaned back again. “See?”

“Believe me, I am too—more than ready, actually. But we can’t.”

“What’s the problem?” I sat up.

“I’d like to make your first time special.”

“But…”

“This is a rite of passage, and it should be done properly.”

Dammit. As much as I hated to admit it, maybe he had a point.

“Was yours? Special, I mean.”

“No, but I’m a man. I suppose there are double standards.”

“How old were you?”

“I was fifteen and worried about hairy palms.” Ian showed me his hands.

I giggled.

“I’ll make you a deal. We’ll try this again tomorrow night, but with some candles, another bottle of wine, and we’ll be in my bed. Some ambiance is in order. Okay?”

Hmm, maybe I’d get a bit of romance and candlelight after all.

“Yes, but I don’t want to go.”

“No one said you were going anywhere. We can have a good time, just not as much fun as I’d hoped for.”

Sounded promising. “What did you have in mind?”

“Has anyone licked you?” He raised a brow.

I shook my head.

A shiver of anticipation ran through me. My stomach twisted into a thick knot, but it wasn’t from fear. Excitement tingled my senses.

“You’re spoiling me, pet. Not everyone gets handed a clean slate. I don’t know how to react.”

“So you haven’t been anyone’s first before?” I couldn’t shake the feeling I was out of my depth here.

“No. See? This’ll be a first for both of us.”

Bombastic #BookBlitz: Rise by Sierra Cross

Rise
Sierra Cross
(Coven of Fire, #1)
Publication date: June 15th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Urban Fantasy

I closed the door on magic long ago…the day it made me an orphan.

Ten years ago, the Coven of Fire sacrificed their lives—my mother among them—to hold off an overwhelming demonic force. Now it’s back.

As a poorly-paid bartender, how can any of this be my problem? But Callie, another orphan of that battle, swears I’m the key to reviving the coven. And there’s an incredibly sexy guardian stranded on my couch who’s promising to help me stop the demons and keep the veil between the realms standing.

One problem: I’ve never been able to use magic. Our local bad boy warlock assures me I have the talent, but even if I did, we don’t have enough witches to complete a coven. The only way to survive is to pull together this pack of magicborn misfits, who have more secrets than spells, into a makeshift coven.

Can we—three untrained witches, a sarcastic warlock, and an overly intense guardian—take back the city…before the demongate falls and the forces that killed my mother destroy us too?

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

“Alix.” At the familiar sly, British-accented voice, I turned to see Asher’s classically beautiful gaze trained on me. He wore a crisp linen button down with the sleeves rolled up his lean chiseled arms. Whips of black tattoos peaked out from the edges of his long black leather gloves. “What’s a sexy witch like you doing in Wont’s clothing?”

“Uh, witch?” I could hear the irritation in my own voice, which meant he could too. But hey, I no longer worked at Sanctum. I didn’t have to treat Asher with kid-gloves because he was a regular. Sure, he had diamond-sharp cheekbones, but if magic was some big turn on for him, screw that. “I’m as Wont as Wont gets, remember?”

“Right.” Asher gave an incredulous little laugh. Then, when he saw I wasn’t kidding, I guess, he quirked his eyebrows, perplexed. “Who cast that deception spell on you, I wonder?”

I rolled my eyes. “Listen, it’s been fun exploring your witch fetish.” Not really. “But I’ve got a job interview—for a real job—and I need to get my head in the game.”

“Of course, that explains your kit.” Asher bowed sardonically. “Much more Wontish and respectable than the bar gig, I’m sure.” He gazed down at the stainless steel to-go cup in his hand as if deliberating. Knowing his penchant for whiskey, I wondered if it contained just coffee or something stronger. When he looked up again, his entire tone had shifted. To anger. “Alix, did you not hear a word your friend was trying to tell you?” His normally measured voice clipped, ultra-low. Whoa, what the hell was happening? The urbane man I’d flirted and joked around with so many times at the bar was now glaring daggers at me. “The scales are tipping. Every one of us magicborn must do our part…”

He went on ranting at me, but my brain stuck on two words: us magicborn. Us? So Asher wasn’t a tourist after all? My mind reeled as I ran through all the magicborn beings my mother had told me about, so long ago… There were witches, and guardians, of course. Shifters, who kept to the margins of city life. Fae, who avoided cities altogether. What was Asher?

Other than, spitting mad at me.

“Are you blind?” He motioned to the bustling foot traffic outside. “Or are you really that repressed that you can’t see that our local crowd is increasingly more demon than human?”
