BLURB:

John Greystoke was the DeCampo Famiglia’s most feared enforcer.

Then he was betrayed by those he trusted most and left for dead.

Five years later, John has escaped and started anew in Washington state.

However, his enemies are closer than he knows, and they have not forgotten about the man they called Tarzan.

However, every Tarzan needs his Jane. John might just have found his, but there is no place in her life for a man like him.

To keep her, he’ll have to turn his back on that world for good, but with the demons of his past getting closer, can he become the man she deserves and still save her from his past, or will the Bratva finally take his head for their Pakhan’s wall…

Rogue is Book 1 of the BSSBL Washington DeCampo Crime Famiglia’s Rogue Warrior Trilogy. This sizzling dark mafia romance is a high octane adventure that combines Tarzan and The Godfather, and is loaded with action, mature themes, and the page igniting steam that earned L.M. Mountford the moniker ‘The Lord of Lust’.

My name is Liam Doughty and I’m a hit man.
All I wanted was to get what I was owed. I carried out the hit as I was hired to do by Irish Mob boss, Vernon O’Keenan. It’s not my fault they found out too late that they had the wrong man. All I wanted was my money. I thought I could kidnap the Mafia Princess Brianna O’Keenan and get the ransom money. What I got was so much more!
Ruthless, feisty, and incredibly sexy, she’s far from the timid daddy’s girl I was expecting. Bree has her own agenda. She wants to dominate in a world ruled by men. I have no doubt she can do it, but she will need my help. Her family rules state only males can run the business. So, Bree proposes we get married. She gets to rule, and I get more money than I ever dreamed of.
Two dark, evil worlds collide when we agree to our black wedding. We will fight each others enemies and come out on top. But what happens if we develop real feelings and we realise our wedding wasn’t all that black?

Tumultuous Time to Tulips

By AUBREY ELLE

Genre: Cozy Mystery | Crime Fiction & Mysteries

Hosted by DS Promotions

BLURB

Spring is just around the corner, and Madis is back with more business than she might be able to handle. But she’s hired a couple of new faces to add to her small crew, and it seems like it’ll be a productive start to the season of landscaping. Properly staffed and rested after the winter break, it should be all systems go.

Not quite. Before her employees can really get busy, Madis encounters a dead man lying in a bed of ivy and tulip sprouts. Her entire crew is questioned since they’ve visited the scene, but they’re not the only ones under suspicion. The victim had enemies aplenty, from an angry former lover, a nosy neighbor, and a competitive rival.

While there’s no such thing as bad publicity, finding a corpse at a jobsite isn’t ideal. Can she figure out who the killer is before things get muddier?

Title: Crashers
Author: Lindy S. Hudis
Genre: Crime Thriller
Release Date: September 9th, 2019
#Crashers

 

 

 

 

 
 
Enter the world of Crashers! A riveting story of love, desperation and greed. 
Fraudulent car accidents is a multi-million dollar racket, involving unscrupulous medical providers, personal injury attorneys, and the cooperating passengers involved in the elaborate network—and who also receive a portion of the illegal proceeds. Such is the fate of newly engaged, Nathan and Shari, whose joy is tempered by the dark cloud of mounting debt. 
A chance encounter with a sexy, mysterious stranger, in whom Shari confides her troubles proves fortuitous: he tells her of a get-rich-quick scheme that will put her and her fiancé on easy street. Seduced by the chance to move from hard times to good times in no time, Sheri takes the carrot offered her, and finds herself acting as a “stuffed passenger”—the “victim” in a staged auto accident. The act goes according to plan and Shari gets her payday, but getting out and breaking free of the insurance fraud underworld will take nothing short of a miracle. 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 
Chapter 1
For KXXX TV and KXXX AM Radio News, this is Katie Carlson with your mid-morning eye-in-the-sky traffic report, and it’s an easy one: It’s messed up EVERYWHERE! So far, the 405 South is backed up all the way to the 101. So, if you are going into Hollywood this morning, you are going to be late for that audition. Also, there is an injury crash on the Eastbound 10. So, if you are heading into downtown LA, you might want to bring a magazine or get some knitting done. If you are going to LAX, forget it, call mom back east and tell her you will be driving out instead. Just Kidding! Any way, this is Katie Carlson with the Los Angeles mid-morning traffic report. Enjoy your commute everybody, NOT!
* * *
As the blare of the clock radio on the night table jolted her awake, Shari Barnes rubbed her eyes, blew her long brown hair out of her face, and snuggled into Nathan Townsend’s chest. She curled her body around his middle and took a deep whiff of his salty, masculine neck.
But she couldn’t ignore the voice on the radio.
“Monday morning traffic,” she sighed.
Nathan matched the sigh and put his arms around her. “At least you don’t have to drive over the hill.”
“Yeah, I would just die if I had to drive into Beverly Hills every day to work in a beautiful office.” Shari giggled and disappeared under their thick blue comforter for a few more moments of sleepy-headed bliss. She felt Nathan stretch up, and a moment later the radio shut off. Then he slid down next to her in the single bed they shared in their Studio City apartment, a few blocks north of Ventura Boulevard. The constant drone and rumble of another L.A. morning came clearly through the open window: cars honking, rock music blaring, the frantic scurrying sounds of the film shoot a few blocks away. Shari ran her bare feet up the inside of Nathan’s thigh.
He jumped. “Shit, your feet are cold.” He pushed her legs off of him.
“What time is it?” she murmured between kisses.
“Um, seven.” He nuzzled her neck and she felt him becoming erect against her.
“No time for that!” She threw off the covers. “Gotta be at work on time for once; gotta get my ass out of bed.”
“There’s a snake in the bed?” Nathan grabbed her with both hands and gave her belly gentle nips.
“Yeah, of the one-eyed variety.” Shari leaped to the floor and padded naked into the bathroom. She turned the hot water in the shower to high and stepped in, filling the small bathroom with steam.
She had just poured a green drop of shampoo into her palm and was running her hands together when the flimsy yellow and white shower curtain flew back and Nathan grinned in at her. She smiled back, surprised by neither his arrival nor the partial hard-on that preceded him.
“Mind if we join you?” he asked.
“There’s enough shampoo for everybody,” Shari said as she rubbed her hands across her scalp.
He stepped into the stall, pulled the curtain closed and began to lather her hair for her. She put her hands on his back, feeling the taut muscles and the water streaming there, but did not reach down between them. It took him about five seconds to realize it and hold her away.
“You okay?”
“Fine….”
“Don’t lie; I can always tell when you have something on your mind.”
“You know me better than I know me,” she said.
“You know it.” He pushed her wet hair over her shoulders. “Come on, give.”
“I was thinking maybe I should get a second job.”
“You’re worrying about money again?”
“Well, I have to shoot my student thesis film this year or I won’t graduate. But where am I going to get the money I need?”
“How much do you need?”
“At least five figures.”
 
5 STARS!
“Now we are perfectly posed to raise the question this thriller centers on: When bad things happen to good people, how fragile is the line between morality and survival? Is a little unprovable insurance fraud a victimless crime, or the gate to unfathomable legions of dark decay? Against the fast paced, infamous Hollywood backdrop you won’t be able to believe what is happening all while a tiny voice is zinging nagging quesions at you about what you would do in their shoes. Add in sex, drugs, owners of houses of ill repute, the profession that has earned every filthy stereotype with less faith than you would offer the sleaziest used car saleman (attorneys at law, of course), a young cop eager to make a name with a personal vendetta, and all the innocent (and not so innocent) bystanders, plenty of surprising plot twists, this is a book you won’t be able to put down.”

Title: Blonde Moxie
Author: C.R. Lemons
Genre: Noir Crime Thriller
Release Date: May 7, 2019
There is a fine line between an investigation turning obsessive, reality blurring into fantasy, and determination masked as courage…
 
Seasoned homicide detective Breck Nolan is within a week of retiring when he is called out to the horrific crime scene of missing person Camille Earhart. He quickly discovers she is a stunning blonde beauty with soul-capturing blue eyes and a singer at a local jazz lounge. The deeper he dives into his missing blonde’s life the more Detective Nolan becomes enamored with her, but he learns little about who she actually is. She is a mystery in which he is determined to solve in hopes to find her alive.
 
Through his investigation, he finds his missing blonde has left a trail of corrupt men in her wake. Each with a slightly different description of who she is and all with a motive in benefiting from her disappearance. The one that stands out the most is her married boss Sal Aiolfi, Jr., the son of mob boss, Sal, Sr., who Detective Nolan has a not-so-favorable history with.
 
When two bodies turn up along with the discovery of a handful of missing person cases all linked to the jazz club, Detective Nolan makes it a personal mission to get to the bottom, even if it means breaking in doors and kicking in knee caps to accomplish it. This causes a push back from his own department, leaving him to choose between his badge or his honor. Detective Nolan stubbornly decides there is a third option to keep both with the help of a few unlikely and interesting allies along the way.
 
In the end, will he ever find his missing blonde, or will she forever be an alluring enigma?
