Beautiful Delusions (Pride and Honor Book 1)
Kaylee
Violence… PTSD… affects my life and my childrens lives daily… The past has come back in the most dangerous way, at least that’s what I think. Am I being stalked or is it PTSD? This leads me to a counselor specializing in PTSD, unfortunately he turns out to be a friend from my childhood. He wants to help but how can I trust him when he left without an explanation.
Griffin
I’ve found Kaylee, years ago I made the biggest mistake of my life and left. I’m a psychiatrist specializing in PTSD, overstepping the ethical bounds to help heal her from the violence of the past. With the help of my team I will keep Kaylee and her children safe.

Beautiful Sacrifice (Pride and Honor Book 2)
Tasha
Being a cop, I didn’t have any choice, but I really wish I hadn’t got mixed up in this case. My dark past is catching up to me ever since he barreled into my life without a care. It terrifies me that he sees right through me. He could be the one to save me . . . or break me.

Twitch
It was just a job. Until it wasn’t. By then the sexy little redhead had her claws in me. Now, she’s in my life and I’m lost. How am I supposed to keep the demons from her past from eating her alive? I don’t know, but I will do whatever it takes to make her mine.

Beautiful Deception (Pride and Honor Book 3)
This is the third book in the Pride and Honor Series, but it can be read as a standalone
Marcy
He knows. He knows what I did and there is no way he will ever forgive me. That’s the least of my worries. Now, that secret, that little boy that holds my heart in his hands has been stolen from us. I’ll do whatever it takes to get him back. Even if it costs me my life.

Mac
Marcy had always been mine. I thought she always would be. A misunderstanding ruined that. Ruined any chance for us to be happy. She stole that chance… that life. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to forgive her. The truth is I never stopped loving her, and I’ll do whatever it takes to save her.

Beautiful Surrender (Pride and Honor Book 4)

The final chapter of the Pride and Honor Series is finally here.

Trey
Pissed couldn’t even begin to describe the way I felt when I thought about her. She lied to me. She didn’t even have the decency to stick around and explain herself. The only problem, we needed her to find my family, and despite how angry I was, I needed her. She was everything I ever wanted and I had no idea how to make her stay.

Kenzie
I didn’t do relationships. I didn’t do family, and I definitely didn’t do feelings. But, when I was with him, I found myself dreaming about the what-ifs and could be’s. That was dangerous. Anyone who had the misfortune of loving me ended up dead and I refused to let that happen again. My walls were thick but the scary thing was Trey might just be the one to break them all down.

Publication Date: July 31st, 2018
Blurb:
You know the saying. A picture is worth a thousand words?
Well, it’s true.
And I’m going to tell you why. Or rather, show you.
My name is Chloe Vanderbilt and a few weeks ago, my life changed forever.
And it’s all due to one single photograph.
Freelance writer Chloe Vanderbilt never imagined her life would become a story.
As a Hollywood gossip columnist for one of Australia’s biggest entertainment websites, she’d always written about the lives of those far more glamourous than herself.
One steamy summer night, and a few wines too many, an encounter with a mysterious stranger at a party shakes up her world.
No cameras or phones were allowed at the party, so Chloe thought she’d take the secret to her grave.
When a picture emerges a few weeks later of her and Hollywood ‘it’ boy Jack Dean, it gets tongues wagging and before long, Chloe finds herself the heroine of her own story.
Everyone wants to know about the Sydney writer who stole the heart of Hollywood’s latest heartthrob.
Soon, all of Chloe’s wildest dreams come true.
But is it happening too fast?
Chloe has a decision to make: lose her dignity, or the greatest love of her life?
When the world falls at her feet, will Chloe run with it, or away from it?
This is a story about how one photograph can make or break you.

BLURB

Jamie:

I drink.

I party.

I’ll let you guess what else I do the best and they never get any seconds with me. One and done.

My parents abandoned me and the choices I make guarantee I’m never the one left behind.

I say and do what I want with no regrets; now I’m ordered to attend anger management to keep my job.

The problem? The last time I saw Gavin, I left him after a night of heavy drinking and him failing to measure up to the task.

Gavin:

My job, my house, my car…my life is exactly how I want it to be except in the relationship department. Jamie has a ridiculous one and done rule. I know one taste will never be enough. If she thinks this is over, she has never been more wrong.

I’m determined to prove to her that rules were made to be broken and that we are worth breaking them.

Title: Outliers
Author: Kate L Mary
Genre: Adult Dystopian
Publisher: Twisted Press
Publication Date: Mar. 6th, 2018
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:
In the dusty ruins of the world, three groups exist: the Sovereign, the Fortis, and the Outliers. Within their walled city, exclusive access to the only remaining technology gives the Sovereign an advantage that seems impossible to beat. In exchange for meager scraps and free reign outside the walls, they use the brawn of the Fortis to their advantage while the Outliers struggle to survive. Living on land that has not healed from the poison of the past, and surrounded by dangers too numerous to count, the Outliers have adapted – but to the Sovereign and the Fortis, they are nothing.
Indra is an Outlier. Each day she braves the wastelands, making the dangerous journey from the wilds where she lives to the City so she can serve the Sovereign in order to give her family a better life. Inside the walls, she has no rights and no freedom. Not only is she powerless to resist the Sovereign’s harsh rule, but she is also unable to do anything to save her people from the brutality of the Fortis. For centuries they have made their abuse of Outliers a sport, but when Asa comes to Indra’s rescue, she sees something different in him. Something that marks him as so much more than just a Fortis guard.
But as Indra’s world begins to unravel, even the quiet alliance she has formed with Asa cannot save her from the wrath of the Sovereign. In one life-altering moment, everything Indra has ever known is ripped away, forcing her to face a world even more harsh and unforgiving. Broken and scarred, Indra finds herself on a journey that will challenge everything she’s ever been taught, learning along the way that she’s stronger than she ever imagined. Maybe even strong enough to free her people forever.

“He is in love with you,” Mira finally said.
The statement warmed my cheeks even though I had already come to this conclusion. “I know.”
“And you?” She glanced my way, not turning her head completely when she did it, as if she thought it would make me more likely to answer her honestly. As if she thought I was hiding something from her. “Do you love him?”
“I know nothing about him, but the answer would be no either way. I love Bodhi. I would not have married him otherwise. Plus, no matter what Asa does to help me, an Outlier cannot be with a Fortis. It is impossible.”
“Why?” Mira asked.
I turned my body to face her, walking sideways so that my back was to the Lygan Cliffs even though I had been taught to never lose my focus in this way. “Because we are not the same.”
“Now you sound like one of the Sovereign.” Mira’s blue eyes rolled in their sockets, but her lips pulled up into a smile that helped to ease some of the sting her words had brought to me. “We are the same, Indra. We are all people. We have just been trained to believe that we are different.”
I opened my mouth to argue with her, but no words came out. She was right. Sovereign, Outlier, Fortis, we were all just people. The only thing that kept us apart were the walls that had been constructed years ago, both the physical ones and the ones that existed only in our minds. Those were built on oppression and prejudices so old that no one alive today had a clue why they even existed.
A click echoed off the rocks at my back, followed closely by a few more. In front of me, my friend’s body went rigid. I spun to face the cliffs, the knife in my hand up and ready as more clicking rang through the air. But there was nothing in sight. Not yet, anyway.
“Where is it?” Mira hissed.
At my side, she too had her knife up. This was a position we had been in before, and as long as there was only one of the creatures, we knew what to do to defend ourselves. The problem would come if they were hunting in a pack. One lygan was dangerous enough, but four or five? We would not be able to beat that many.
We remained still. The clicks grew closer together and louder, but with the way the sounds echoed off the rocks, it was impossible to tell how many there were until the creature—or creatures—decided to show themselves.
“Be ready,” I said for my benefit as much as for hers.
The hiss came first. It was a sound that was low and seemed to come from the deepest part of the animal’s belly, and it was followed only a beat later by the appearance of the lygan itself. The creature was bigger than average, its tail as long as my arm and its body only a little shorter. Its claws clicked across the rocks as it scurried forward, seeming to move at an impossibly fast speed considering its stunted legs. The red and purple scales shone even in the limited light of the evening as the lygan twisted between the sharp rocks that made up the cliffs. Now that it was closer, the click of its claws seemed twice as loud, and when it hissed a second time, the sharp points of its teeth were visible.
Readying myself for a fight, I planted my feet. I knew from experience that the creature would pounce without warning, that was how Mira had been injured before, and I was ready when it finally flew through the air, headed right for me.
I slashed my knife up and the blade hit home on the lygan’s stomach. It screeched just before its body slammed into mine, and when I flew back a cry retched from my body on impact. We went down together, my back slamming into the dry ground and the lygan landing on top of me. It was injured and my knife was still in its belly, but it had not given up yet. The animal wiggled and snapped its jaw, and his teeth came close enough to my nose that I felt its moist breath against my face. His yellow eyes were focused on me, the black pupils dilated to slits. The scales were smooth against my hand when I grabbed its neck in an attempt to hold him back, and his claws scratched at my body as he tried to get the advantage.
“Indra!”
Mira’s voice seemed far away, but I knew she was nearby and ready to help. Just as I had been with her the day she was attacked. Her face appeared above me. The setting sun shone down on her blond hair, making it glow, and in the brilliant light her passage markings seemed twice as dark against her pale skin.
The sun reflected off the metal when she raised her knife and I had to turn my head away. My hand was still on the lygan’s neck, holding the thing back as it snapped its teeth, but even before Mira had stabbed it I could feel its strength waning. Then she did, and when the knife entered the lygan’s body, the creature let out a shriek that left a ringing behind in my ears. The lygan jerked and its claws clamped down on my stomach, puncturing my dress and forcing a scream out of me. Mira pulled her knife from the creature and brought it down again, and this time the animal let out a drained wail that was preceded by its entire body going slack.
When that happened, its claws relaxed as well, freeing me from the piercing hold it had on my body. I shoved the animal off and it rolled to the ground at my side. Mira was panting, as was I, and for a beat neither one of us moved. She stayed frozen, standing over me while I remained on my back, staring up at her.
