Author: Stacy Gail 
Genre: Contemporary/NA Romance, Urban Romance
Release Date: June 23, 2022
 
 
TRIGGER WARNING: This book deals with a character dosed with Rohypnol, a date-rape drug. Though the assault goes no further than that, if this is a trigger, this book is not for you.
Content creator. Trendsetting influencer. Society columnist.
Hannah Raven has worked nonstop since she was sixteen to make it big. Abandoned by her mother to a grandmother who didn’t want her, Hannah fought to create a space for herself where she belonged. So what if it was on the internet? That didn’t mean it wasn’t real.
Decorated military hero. Doctor. One of Chicago’s prized eligible bachelors.
Dalton Derico thought he’d seen it all, and what he’d seen wasn’t worth a damn. Then a stunning woman collapses in his arms after being slipped a roofie, and everything changes. There is beauty in the world, and he will have it for himself… as long as he can convince Hannah that all her roads lead to him.
Flitting from party to party has always been Hannah’s way, but now that she knows the darker side of party life, she’s reconsidering where she belongs. Is she destined to cover the celebrations of other people forever, or should she risk putting her faith in Dalton by creating a new world that could belong to them both?
***This contemporary romance includes a fiercely protective Alpha who’s hot enough to raise temperatures and drop panties. As always, no cheating, no love triangles, no cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed, with an epilogue built to make you happy-sigh. Due to adult language and sexual content, this book is not intended for people under the age of eighteen.***

“Being treated like royalty at restaurants is a definite perk to dating Chicago’s favorite professional party girl,” Dalton remarked as he walked Hannah to her car. She’d insisted on driving herself to the restaurant for a couple reasons. First, she’d needed to go back to the office after picking out a costume for the fete to gather up her coat. But the main reason had been that she hadn’t been lying when she’d told Dalton her guard was up. Taking risks, such as getting into cars with men she barely knew, was something carefree-Hannah had done, before she’d been slipped a roofie. No way would she do it now.

Even if the man she was with had the ability to make her feel safe simply by the sound of his voice alone.

“Just wait until I take you out for coffee at Joe’s Joe.” She smiled up at him as she hit the lock on her car’s key fob, then promptly forgot what she was doing when he returned that smile in spades. Dear God, this man was breathtaking. “They’ll fill you up with so much caffeine you won’t sleep for days, but it’s totally worth it.”

“It’s a date.” He came to an abrupt stop as well to stare down at her as if he couldn’t get enough of the sight of her face. “In fact, everything we do should be a date from here on in, from eating, to grabbing a cup of coffee, to breathing. You game?”

Her eyes widened, and suddenly that breathing he mentioned was hard to do. “You mean we should spend more time together?”

“I mean we should spend every waking moment together. Time without you in it is a complete waste.” While she was still reeling from that statement, he reached out and cupped the side of her jaw, his fingers sliding into her hair. “You’re good with that, yeah?”

“Yeah.” Her response was swallowed by his mouth, but she didn’t mind. When a man kissed a woman like it was what he was put on earth to do, she could pretty much forgive him anything.

By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a figure skating coach who was also a published romance author, or a romance author who was also a figure skating pro. Now, with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from steampunk to cyberpunk, contemporary to paranormal at night, both dreams have come true.

*While this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. *

I’ve been told I’m insufferable, hard to live with and I’m wasting my second chance.

 I survived. My sister was saved. But my colors, my lights, my soul died the day I tried to play hero.

Now, I’m stuck in a silent monochrome world.

I’m content to wallow in my darkness.

Asia DeMarco was the bane of our existence all through our teen years. She took joy in others misery and bullied everyone in her path.

We grew up. We forgave. We never considered the reasons she was worse than Regina George on a bad hair, PMS day.

 Her sins are nothing compared to her secrets.

At my rock bottom, she arrives full of determination and fire. She might be the only one to save me from burning in my own dumpster-fire life.

 When her truth comes to light, she’s in a battle with something more sinister than her younger self. Am I man enough to save her or will I fail again?

I’ve had my eye on the Phoebe Powell for the last year. She’s sexy, confident, and all-around feisty. Her walls are high, and she has an unbreakable lock on the steel gate around her beautiful heart, making it very clear there will be nothing between us, keeping us in the friend-zone.

I admire her dedication and work ethic as one of San Francisco’s best investigative reporters. Phoebe goes missing when she discovers deep dark secrets on her current assignment, putting her in the danger-zone. As a former Navy SEAL my instincts kick in and I will do everything I can to find Phoebe.

When Phoebe finally reappears out of nowhere, I take her to the safest place to hide from the imminent danger closing in on her. But this man is powerful, and it may not be enough to keep her safe. While off the grid, our connection draws us closer. I must keep Phoebe at arm’s length, it’s non-negotiable. I can’t lose focus of what’s at stake. Her life.

About the Author:

Michelle Fernandez lives in Southern California with her husband, children, and two pups. When she’s not writing, she’s laughing it up with friends and family or simply relaxing!

Contemporary Romance, Romance Suspense and Military Romance are her most favorite genres, and loves happily ever afters… who doesn’t? Which is why she started writing in the first place. It started as a hobby. One chapter turned into ten, then a novel was born.

Till I Found You is her first novel. The damsel heroine and the alpha gentleman hero are whom she loves to write about. Making up worlds and characters for readers to fall in love with, is the most rewarding for her.

She hopes that her words give the reader all the ‘feels’ as it does for her when she writes about them and makes them as authentic as she possibly can.

Title: Intentional Acts of Kindness
Author: Drea Braddock
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 17, 2022
What if small acts of kindness lead to friends, joy, and love? Would it be worth the risk?
My world was falling apart when a beautiful stranger pressed a warm cup of coffee into my hands before leaving me with my sorrow and the memory of her eyes. I’m only in town temporarily, in no position to be looking for more, but I can’t stop thinking about her.
And then we run into each other again.
And again.
Until I’m helping with her charity for survivors of domestic abuse just to be close to her, volunteering my time for a glimpse of Ivy Hammond’s kindness in action.
Ivy has reason to be slow to trust and wary of men. And I have a job waiting for me back home. But all I want is to be someone she trusts.
What if I can show Ivy that she’s safe with me?
What if I stay?

“This book had me giddy with new love feelings throughout!” – Reviewer
“So uplifting, so hopeful. Very well written, low angst and just full of warm and fuzzy!” – Reviewer
“Pure intentions lead to interesting outcomes in this book and I loved it!” – Reviewer
Jeepers creepers, it’s him again! I dip my head down, watching through my lashes in an attempt not to be outright staring. I doubt I’m fooling anyone in this coffee line. I’ve never been this close before. Close enough to see that his fitted jeans are cuffed unevenly, not hitting the tops of his lace-up boots in the same place. I could reach out and touch the lived-in leather jacket stretching across his broad shoulders. Maybe run my fingers through those short dark curls. Except my first instinct is to wrap my arms around him protectively because it’s not his looks that first caught my attention. It was the weight that seems to be pressing down on him, curving his spine, bowing his head, rounding his shoulders inward. He seems worn out. Weary. In need of a hug. Not that I should be the one to give it to him. I have to cross my arms, though, keeping them to myself, to stop the ridiculous impulse to hug a complete stranger. Keep it together, Ivy, don’t be such a weirdo.

 

As the weeks go by I see him fairly regularly, from afar. Whether it’s ordering two to-go cups in the local coffee shop, The Foundry, or walking through the park bordering the hospital, that weight is ever-present and seems to be increasing. He always has the same worn paperback in his pocket with what looks like a comb as a bookmark. Why a comb? Is that good for the book? Probably not but it’s intriguing. I find myself spending far too much time wondering where he’s headed, what is making him that sad, and what the book is about. I need to get a life. It’s not that unusual for me to spend time watching someone I want to help, but without anything to indicate what he needs, this is feeling stalker-ish. Something tells me an awkward stalker is not the one thing he needs. That logic doesn’t keep me from thinking about him though. I’m calling him Weary Stranger and he’s a puzzle I can’t solve. I think about him while I walk to The Birth and Wellness Collective where I work as a doula. I ponder the source of his problems while in yoga. I wonder what I could do for him while sipping my nightly tea. I don’t know him, I have no responsibility towards him, but I can’t shake my desire to help. Maybe I could fall back on my old standby and write him a note.

 
I love helping people — doing small, special things to make their day. Sending anonymous cards has a special place in my heart. I’ve lost count of how many I’ve written over the years. I can struggle with sharing my feelings out loud but writing is different. I’d never been brave enough to be so honest in person. In an anonymous card, I feel free. I’ve moved beyond blank cards pilfered from the summer camp craft cabin though. 12-year-old me would be proud of how I’ve grown my hobby that started with a secret-admirer-style note to the most popular boy at camp. I wasn’t one of his groupies, but I did admire his kind nature and wrote to him to tell him I thought that was more impressive than his good looks. That note caused him to stop preening for the girls and become the kind role model the younger campers needed and gave me a way to use my quiet observations to care for others. I’m thankful I now have more options than my sub-par artwork on cheap cardstock! I found this sweet Etsy shop, Reflection Paper Crafts, that sells blank cards with gorgeous calligraphy and simple art that makes a statement. I love being able to build up a stranger inside something pretty! I have the perfect art picked out for Weary Stranger but I’m still struggling with what to say. I haven’t seen him enough to know what he needs, just that he needs something.

Drea lives on the beautiful island of O’ahu, Hawai’i with her Sailor and their 5 kids. She drinks a lot of coffee, reads a lot of books, has a lot of tattoos, and likes to put people she dreamed up through the emotional wringer before giving them their Happily Ever After.

From Book 1: Heart of Stone

Bound by need. Entwined in secrets…

Krystina

I had dreams and aspirations, none of which included a man by my side. Been there, done that. Then I forgot my cellphone, and all of my carefully laid plans went to hell.

He wasn’t supposed to be there when I fell. I wasn’t supposed to get lost in a sea of sapphire blue when he helped me up. And he wasn’t supposed to be Alexander Stone, the New York billionaire real estate tycoon.

I saw the dark promises in his eyes when he looked at me. But the shadows of my past haunted me, making me afraid to explore the possibilities I could never before have imagined.

Alexander

I was used to getting what I wanted. I understood the value of finesse and patience to achieve the desired result. But a chance run-in with Krystina Cole quickly turned my world upside down.

She was strong, determined, devastatingly beautiful—and stubborn as hell. Her quick wit and firecracker attitude was the complete opposite of what I wanted in a woman. But I still wanted to claim her. Tame her. Make her mine.

And I always get what I want.

Heart of Stone is the first book in Krystina & Alexander’s epic love story. It’s the beginning of the steamy and unforgettable series by Amazon Top 100 Bestselling Author Dakota Willink.

Title: One Little Victory
Author: Kat Long
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 1, 2022
Cover Design: Kris Guiao
Addison
The past often attacks the present with the pain of memories.
So I stopped chasing dreams built on broken words. My plan’s simple: Work hard, play harder, and never—ever—get involved with anyone. But one chance encounter with Simon Kelly turns my world upside down. He’s too pretentious, too arrogant—and don’t get me started on his storm gray eyes.
When a picture of us lands in the tabloids, we come to an arrangement. We’ll pretend to date, then go our separate ways.
 
Simon
Addison wants to play pretend?
Fine. We’ll restore our reputations and I’ll accept that no amount of guilt can change the past. But the feelings are real—too real to let her go. I know what I want, and I’m going to get it. I’ll prove to her we’re better together than apart.
I’m here to change her story.

Kat lives at the beach with her Happily Ever After, a daughter, and two irritating but lovable cats.
Before she started writing contemporary romance, she graduated with a Master’s Degree in School Psychology.
Now, by day she works in Finance, and by night she writes.
Books have always made her heart beat faster, and she started writing her first novel after dreaming up an Alpha-Marshmallow.
Her characters are sexy, clever, and fearless, but in real life Kat’s the ultimate over-thinker. Let’s face it, her inner monologues would not make good reading.
She flips for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s heat.
When she’s not reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably watching Animal Planet in yoga pants, trying not to over water her succulents, drinking too much coffee, and wondering if the real meaning of life is forty-two.
