RELEASE DAY BLITZ - Bad Blood by Amity Cross

Title: Bad Blood
Series: Royal Blood #2
Author: Amity Cross
 Release Date: April 7, 2015


A killer without a master.
A monster without a leash.

Xavier “X” Blood is a contract killer. Cold, calculating, devoid of feeling.

He knows the best way to drive the life from another human beings eyes, but what he doesn’t bargain on is wanting to save a life he’s meant to take.

Mercy Reid was good at running from her demons. That was until she met X and her life was thrown into chaos.

Mercy finally has him on her side…and in her bed, but it’s at a cost far greater than she could’ve anticipated.

On the run, they must learn to trust one another beyond their burgeoning love if they want to get through the coming chaos. Revenge, truth, lies...heartache...insanity. All of it threatening to drive them apart.

Mercy will do whatever it takes to avenge the horror that Sykes put her through. Anything. Even if she has to drown the last of her soul in the bad blood that threatens to destroy the last thing she holds dearest in her heart.

Release Blitz for Wine & Whiskey (Surviving Absolution #1) by Nikki Belaire

Title: Wine & Whiskey
Author: Nikki Belaire
Series: Surviving Absolution
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 7, 2015

No longer controlled by her mother, manager, or former fiancĂ©, pop star Shae Armstrong steps out on her own and into the path of Nick DeMarco, a wealthy investor with alleged ties to organized crime and real childhood scars to overcome. She wants to take it slow. He needs her now, in his life and in his bed. 

Nick’s enemies threaten her career, her friendships, even her sanity, but not her heart - the one thing Nick holds precious. He proves his love is real, and she stops running. Until everything around them falls apart, including him. He swore he would never hurt her. Instead, he almost destroys them both. 

Buoyed by her new-found confidence and strength his love instills in her, Shae makes a dangerous choice, sacrificing her happiness for his, just like he always does for her. Unable to let her break the connection between them, Nick accepts the trust she places in him, the depth of her love giving him the courage to try again. 

Now that she’s found her own voice and helped him see who he really is, can Shae survive the challenges of living in Nick’s world?

Pinkness tints her cheeks as she tilts her head, tucking a strand of hair behind
her ear. Her sudden shyness intoxicates him, a heady combination of adorable and sexy, making her pleasure his only goal. He slips his hands under her negligee, lifting it off and tossing it aside. The pressure in his groin almost erupts at
her pink nipples straining taut against his chest.
Keeping him from taking one in his mouth, she slides her delicate hands under his chin, studying his face, scanning his features as if searching for something beyond the surface. He freezes under her gaze. She delves deeper than any other woman, almost farther than he can endure, fearful she’ll pierce the mask hiding the real him. And, despise what she finds underneath. His voice chokes in his throat. “What?”
A soft smile graces her angelic face. “Has anyone ever told you how wonderful you are?”
No. Because no one’s ever thought it but her.
Her mouth finds his. Chaste kisses, smiling against his lips. “And romantic.” Pressing softly, barely touching. “Thoughtful.” Driving him to the edge as he resists every urge to devour her. “Sexy.”
Just when he can’t hold back any longer, she thrusts her tongue inside, making him moan as his fingers slide across her cheeks and into her hair, absorbing all of her sweet essence. Fighting to control his desire, he breaks away, dipping
his head and flicking his tongue against the hardened nub, keeping her in place as her back arches. She drives her hands through his hair, wrapping her fingers around the burgeoning curls on his neck he hates, her breathy whisper like fireworks against his skin. “These are perfect to hold on to when you make love to me.”
Okay, maybe they aren’t so bad. She lifts up from straddling him as he grasps the waistband of her panties. Her fingertips burn his skin in their urgency to help him push them down. In her raised position, he teases her wet core, stroking the soft folds before plunging a finger inside. She gasps, her legs trembling, and begins to lower herself back down. Wrapping his arm around her waist, he holds her up as she rests her head on his shoulder. His body flames with need at her lips on his ear. “Your fingers are magic.”
“That’s not my only trick.”
As she whispers his name, her hands move to his pants, unbuttoning and unzipping them as he lifts up to free himself from the fabric separating them. He reaches
into his pocket and pulls out a foil packet before kicking his pants all the way
off. Her eyes never waver from his as he guides her hips over his throbbing tip.
She slides down his length, her lips parting in a sharp gasp, her small fist wrapping around his shirt. Pain grips his chest at her hesitation. “Are you okay?”
A slow smile curls her lips as she nods. “I’ve never been on top. You’re a lot to take in at once.”
“I don’t want to hurt you.” “I’m fine.”
Coiling her arms around his neck, she slowly raises and lowers her body, letting him stretch and fill her, building tension in him begging to be released. Silky perfection moving under his fingertips. All he can see is her. Nothing else
exists. No barriers between them. Only her sweetness surrounding him, flowing over him like the purest honey. “Do you know how much I love you?”
She nods, her eyes heavy with desire, locking with his. God, she’s so beautiful. “How right this is?”
Her head dips again, her gaze boring into his, humbling him with the enormity of her love.
“How I'm never letting you go?”
Her pace quickens at his words. Their bodies’ slick with sweat, skin sliding against skin as she accepts him completely. He grasps her hips, grinding into
her while helping her ride him faster and deeper. The rhythm of his hard thrusts matches her racing heart against his chest, her muscles pulsing and tightening around him. “Nick, I...”
He can’t hold back, and he’s taking her with him. “Tell me, sweetness.”

Nikki writes contemporary romantic thrillers and admits to a weakness for alpha males and bad boys, especially ones who can’t live without the strong women they love. She spends more time in her characters’ lives than her own. But, when she’s in the real world, her passions include reading, wine appreciating, running, and spending time with her husband and daughter.

The first book of Nikki’s Surviving Absolution series is Wine & Whiskey, which launches in April 2015 through Secret Cravings Publishing. Heat level: three flames.


Wait For Morning Tour~ Nicole Edwards

Welcome to Sniper 1 Security.  Wait for Morning is the first in a new series called Sniper 1 Security. This series will focus around two families that are in the private security business. This book is different for Nicole as it’s the first for her in the romantic suspense genre. For readers, they will find the normal Nicole Edwards style of writing, with a nice mixture of excitement, suspense and her erotic touches where needed. For the die-hard Nicole Edwards fans, they will see a bit less of the erotic, but when it's present it will set your e-reader on fire!

Trace Kogan will go to any length to protect those who need protecting. That is the business he is in; the business his father, Casper Kogan, started with Bryce Trexler more than thirty-five years ago. Trace spends day and night eliminating threats to clients, so when the danger hits too close to home, he won’t let anything come between him and the woman who desperately needs his help.

His fear… the physical reaction he has to Marissa may pose a bigger danger than the ghost that they find themselves up against.

Marissa Trexler has spent the last twelve months of her life in hiding, tucked away in one safe house after another for her own protection. The threat to her is real even if the reason is still unknown. Strangely, whoever is after her seems to find her no matter where she goes, leading her family to believe it’s an inside job.

So when the decision is made that Trace will provide personal protection, she can’t say no, even if being close to him adds another level of danger… and this one is to her heart.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nicole Edwards lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, their three kids, and four rambunctious dogs. When she’s not writing about sexy alpha males, Nicole can often be found with her Kindle in hand or making an attempt to keep the dogs happy.

Take Me Away by S. Moose Tour

Title: Take Me Away 
Author: S. Moose
Genre: NA Romance
Release Date: April 7, 2015
Cover Model: Gunnar DeWitt

After breaking up with her long time boyfriend, Jackson DeLacey, eighteen-year-old Zara Borzilleri promises herself to focus on school and play the game she loves. Stepping foot onto the lacrosse field, in front of a cheering crowd, pushes aside the pain and reminds her of the future ahead at least until she graduates in four years.

Lacrosse star Treston 'The King' Parker dominates the field and to everyone else he has it all. Behind closed doors he's just Treston Parker- a monster full of secrets, deep, dark secrets only he knows. He won't allow anyone to get close and for the past two years he's kept his promises to her, but never his last promise: falling in love again.

One weekend he gives in and everything changes when he meets Zara. The rules change and she sees Treston for who he truly is, not what everyone else sees. But to Treston, meeting Zara means nothing, even though her blue eyes invades his mind.

We can be friends, but don't ask about my past or where I go. 

He draws the lines.
She erases his lines.

Can Zara help Treston escape his painful past before he sinks deeper into oblivion?

I've given away my heart once and only once. Now, I live my life the way I do. I don't have time to talk about my feelings and get emotional. That shit is for the birds. When you take out emotions you'll feel a lot better, trust me. Emotions mean feeling and feeling means opening yourself up to get hurt and when you’re hurt, all you can think about is why and what you could have done differently. You blame yourself and think of ways to get her back. When you can’t think of anything, you’re backed up into a corner and feel alone. No one can help you because the only person who can will never be able to. That hurt leaves you feeling broken and you go through hell trying to pick yourself back up. You stop your life, the only life you know, and live in the dark. You're vulnerable to words and actions. People around you walk on eggshells, scared to make you cry or piss you off. So I've taken away my feelings and will never hurt the way I did before. See my point?


Take Me Away

4.5 Stars

S. Moose has done it again, I love the way this author writes her characters. The love/hate relationship I had with the main character was crazy. Half the time I wanted to hug him and half the time I wanted to slap him silly… S. Moose really knows how to mess with your emotions.

Treston is one of my new favorite book boyfriends. I loved to hate him throughout most of this book. I thought he was going to be a Grade-A Asshat, he was cocky and used girls for what he wanted and then poof… dropped em like nothing. But, when I really thought about it, these dumb girls knew it, he didn’t hide it… ughh smh….( And he was hurting, deep down, right? It’s no excuse, I know)

Treston was just living his life going through the motions, being “the king” until he meets Zara and everything starts to change. Zara brought out the guy in Treston that I loved! This is when I fell for him. He treated her with such a respect… sigh.  Zara was a great character to compliment Treston, she was kind of portrayed as the innocent girl next door, and I really liked that about her. Their relationship made them both came out of the shells in a way.  But in true book boyfriend fashion, Treston has demons that threaten everything they’ve built…… and this is where things take some crazy turns. There are things I especially didn’t see coming that will rock your socks off.

S. Moose gives us everything you want in a new adult romance, love, loss, romance, and some crazy plot twists. She pulls emotions out of you with her characters stories that have you invested like the characters are your friends. I felt for them and cheered them on through their ups and downs. This is a great story that keeps you wanting more.
