*Book ends on a cliff hanger*

“I fell in love with these two and I can’t get enough of them. The ending ripped my heart out and stomped on it. I was hooked from page 1. This was so good!”- Goodreads Review

“I love you.” Make those words make this right.

“I love you!” Aly’s words are fierce as she demands me to hear them. “I’ve always loved you. Because despite all the betrayal and lies, I know it isn’t your fault, it’s mine. And maybe pity looks better on me than you. But I loved you way more than I ever knew I could. And I never want to love anyone else the way I allowed you to destroy me. How pathetic did it make me look?” Her face is in torment, and my air is choking for fresh starts.

“Don’t say that. Don’t ever say that, please.” There is evidence in my eyes, and I don’t want to release the pain yet. It is mine to be punished with.

“Okay, Lad, I think we’ve said enough.” Alyeska wipes her face and hands, but I can’t be done. She starts to walk away, and I follow her. Rush tries to stop me but it is impossible to let the woman I love more than swimming leave my life.

“It was real.” I bend my head down to the grass.

“Maybe to you, but to me, I didn’t know the difference.” Aly doesn’t look back as she walks away. I don’t blame her. I don’t blame anyone, except myself.

Title: It’s Like Riding a Bike
Author: Kayt Miller
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Trope: Enemies to Lovers
Release Date: October 27, 2022
Cover Design: Booksmith Design
 
Recently divorced Prudence Coleman has a new life, a new job, and new goals. She’s getting her life on track now that her manipulative mama’s boy of an ex-husband is a couple hundred miles away. Her new job working with her best friend is a dream come true. She’s taken up bicycling to get her a** back in shape after letting herself go a little bit. The only problem? A jerk named Nate.
Nate Visch has his life figured out. He owns his own motorcycle shop plus he’s got a great family and friends he can count on. Life is good. No complaints. That is until the sassy brunette on the bicycle crashes into his life, literally. When that happens, everything in his seemingly good life is turned upside down. He likes her curves, sure. Who wouldn’t? What he doesn’t like is the fact that he can’t stop thinking about the stubborn woman with terrible taste in tunes.

Kayt grew up in the midwest surrounded by a loving family, which included three brothers, one sister, and parents who always fostered her creative side.

She wrote her first book when she couldn’t find a story about a certain type of a woman and a specific kind of man. She called it “Game Changer,” and in couldn’t have been a more appropriate title. It changed her life in many ways.

Her author goal is to write stories that romance readers can relate to, while making readers laugh and sometime shed a tear or two. Kayt hopes her readers can escape into a fantasy, one that’s actually possible.

Sure, some of the stories are dubbed “insta-love,” but that’s okay. She fell in love with her husband pretty damn fast and with her daughter the second she saw her.

Title: Flirting With the Enemy
Series: Harbor Highlands Series
Author: Gia Stevens
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 27, 2022
Cover Design: HEA Studios

All is fair in love and promotions…
Until you flirt with the enemy.
Seth Taylor is a thorn in my side. I can’t stand his cocky smirk, know it all demeanor, but most of all, I can’t stand those ridiculous bow ties he wears.
But the number one reason I hate him…
He’s applying for my promotion.
Well, it’s not mine, yet, but he’s certainly ruined my shoo-in chance.
When we’re told interviews will be held during a conference in Colorado, I pray our hotel rooms are on different floors.
Of course, things never go according to plan.
A failed connecting flight, a road trip, and a blizzard force us to seek refuge at an isolated roadside motel in the mountains. When my only option is to share a room with Seth, I’m expecting the bow tie wearing, clean cut, black rim glasses Seth. Not this guy standing in front of me wearing only gray sweatpants that hang dangerously low on his hips and a cocky grin.
Maybe it’s the high altitude or perhaps it’s Seth who’s causing this lightheadedness.
Because when a game of twenty questions turns naughty, it doesn’t take long for the burning rage to turn into fiery passion.
All I know, the longer we stay here lines blur and feelings become real.
Gia Stevens resides in the up north of Minnesota. She lives for the warm, sunny days of summer and dreads the bitter cold of winter. A romantic comedy junkie at heart, she knew she wanted her own stories to encompass those same feelings.

When she’s not busy writing your next book boyfriend, Gia can be found playing in her vegetable garden, watching reruns of The OC and Gossip Girl, or curled up with a good book.

Title: Crypt King
Series: The Restless Souls of Potter’s Field Book 1
Author: TL Reeve & Michele Ryan
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Monster Romance/Fantasy Romance, Enemies to Lovers, Love Triangle
Release Date: August 23, 2022
Cover Design: JodieLocks Designs

There’s a lore about a Crypt King who rules over the forbidden cemetery and collect all the lingering souls. His three companions a step behind…
Isa DeCuir has been marked…
From the moment she was born, Isa has had a target on her back. After a horrible accident claimed the lives of her parents along with her best friend, Keres’, father, strange things began to happen—including her inability to control her spellcasting.
Mads Billiot has been waiting for this moment all his life…
He has honed his skills, chosen his partners wisely, and put into motion certain schemes to not only protect his future bride, but to also break the network of witches within the Grand Du Parish. However, there is a nasty secret buried with the dead that threatens everything he’s accomplished along with his future bride.
Ethan Guidry has walked the earth for over a millennium…
As a Grim, he has seen what can happen to lost souls or those who feed themselves to the Crypt King. There’s no way Ethan would allow Isa to become another of the King’s hapless victim. He’d do anything for the Witchling including becoming her familiar and sharing his life with her. However, there are strange happenings afoot, and his wishes might truly be nightmares.
All Hallows Eve approaches…
As the veil between the living and the dead thins, can Mads and Ethan protect Isa from the truth? Or will Isa become the next victim of the Crypt King?

The Crypt King peered at the space surrounding him and frowned. She was in class… boring. Where was the spice? The intrigue? She wrote in her notebook, taking notes. The letters were a jumbled mess. How she deciphered any of it was of no consequence.

“Should I fuck you here?” he murmured, running his tongue along the curve of her ear. “On your desk. So, the professor can watch.”

Isa glanced up, confusion filling her sweet, pouty features. “Who… How did you get here? Why are you here?”

He lifted his shoulder, sinking into the warmth of her gaze as her eyes traced his skeletal body. “I thought it was time for us to get to know each other. You have been thinking about me all these years.” He chuckled softly as he leaned into her. “Admit it. You’ve wondered a time or two what it would be like to fuck me.”

She gasped. The sweet, honeyed scent of her arousal spun around him in a decadent web he didn’t want to escape. “You’re a pervert.”

“Maybe I am.” He took her hand in his and placed her palm on his cock. A groan of pure satisfaction fell from his lips. “Even better than I imagined.”

“This is wrong. We shouldn’t be together like this.” Yet, despite her protest, she stroked him. Her hand moving up and down his length, squeezing and teasing his tip. “I have class. Someone could see us.”

“Let them watch. I want them all to know only my cock can make you scream.” In a flash, their positions changed. He sat on the wooden chair she’d been occupying. The retractable side desk had been pushed back into its hiding spot. Isa was naked in his arms, her wet pussy dripping on the head of his knobby cock. She gasped, staring back at him with her mouth wide. Her crystal-topaz eyes were filled with surprise and arousal. Her tongue swiped across her bottom lip, while her inviting expression encouraged him to take what he wanted.

“Oh…” She shivered. “Don’t stop.”

“Naughty, naughty girl.” He groaned, lowering her slowly onto his dick. She fluttered around him, coating him in her juices. “Fuck… Is this what gets you off, my Queen? Have you dreamt of this before?”

She scored her fingernails over his skull, whimpering. “How is this possible?”

“Anything is possible.” He rocked her over his cock, reveling in the way she gripped his dick. “Show your professor your beautiful pink pussy stuffed with your King’s cock.” She splayed her legs over his lap while holding her labia open. The wet squelch of her arousal turned him on more. “Do you squirt, my Queen? Can you ejaculate?”

“I’ve never.” She groaned. Her head fell back on his shoulder, and her eyes were closed. Her lips were parted in a pant. The pretty flush on her skin crept toward her breasts and his mouth watered. He took both of her tits into his palms and squeezed. His reward was the twitch and suck of her cunt and the cry that fell from her lips.

“Look at him, Isa. Look at what you’re doing to him.” The Crypt King changed who was in the classroom with them, allowing Mads a space within his conscious stream. “Look at Mads stroking his cock. See the way his tip is covered in precum? He’s leaking for you. He wants his cock buried deep inside of you like I am. Should we invite him to join us? To notch his dick inside your pussy with mine?”

All Hallows Eve approaches…
As the veil between the living and the dead thins, can Mads and Ethan protect Isa from the truth? Or will Isa become the next victim of the Crypt King?

His foot falls were silent, determined not to disturb the grieving girl as he drew near. This beautifully damnable woman who’d haunted his dreams for more years than he recklessly should’ve allowed. She consumed him. Enthralled him. It was as if she drew what was left of his brittle soul from his worthless body, and he willingly gave over to her. With her alabaster skin and long, dark-hickory hair, falling in loose waves around her full, pouting features. Or her entrancing amber eyes that ensnared his attention. He didn’t know if he should devour her or fuck her. Neither were mutually exclusive. Both would be fun. 

He hated her.

Loved her.

Feared her.

She could destroy the worst parts of him. He’d willingly lay himself bare and allow her to pick over his useless bones as carrion would a desolate carcass, left to decompose and become fetid in the humid heat of a Louisiana Summer day. 

Mads stood there, at the top of the knoll, cast in long looming shadows from the setting sun and obelisks built in tribute to the dead, watching as Isa knelt in front of her parents’ vault to place white lilies on their side-by-side graves. He couldn’t help but sneer. Neither of her parents was perfect. Both had secrets, and their secrets were why Isa and her brother Ronan were kept isolated from the rest of the community. Yes, some—the ass kissers as he liked to call them—would say it was because of her being Keres’ protector, but Mads knew the real reason.

What he didn’t know was how much of the truth about that fateful night had made its way back to the daughter of Meredith and Henry DeCuir. Mads had been privy to all of it. From the lies to the scandal to the reason Lydia called Henry to her house. He even knew how the car went off the road and Lydia survived. He wondered absently, as he observed his prey, what Isa’s reaction would be to the news? There’d been no doubt in his mind, she had all the pieces of the grand puzzle hidden in the official documents and investigation of the tragic accident—murder—the only thing he couldn’t fathom was why she never dug into the case.

A part of him was giddy at the idea of her diving into the meat of her parents’ relationship with the Belfleurs. To watch her sully her innocence with their salacious scenes and the hedonistic tendencies, her parents had partaken of. The group orgies with the coven they’d called family—until they weren’t. The nights he’d spied them—the Belfleurs and the DeCuirs—in that very cemetery where she sat, communing with the moon goddess. He licked his lips. Those nights were fun. Would it disgust her to know he’d jerked off while watching them, climaxing hard as the magic sang through the tall, weed strewn grass and church rubble? Would it excite her? Just the memory of such naughty, debauched things made his cock twitch in remembrance of those nights long ago.

The scent of brimstone and sulfur broke the trance Mads had been held within, and his gaze sharpened. There was that mangy mutt, again. Pinpricks of rage spread across Mads’ body, and his hands curled into fists. He’d been nice to Ethan. Gave him a small desolate spot among the headstones and megalithic monuments to call home, yet the bastard couldn’t stay away from what—who—belonged to Mads. He swore he’d make the rabid Church Grim pay for his transgressions, uncaring of how it would appear to his bride-to-be.

Rabid dogs needed to learn to heel. Ethan was no exception to the rule.

“Should we deal with him?” As if sensing the sour turn of Mads emotions, Rafe apparated beside him, rubbing his hands together while licking his lips. 

Rafe, Brody, and Jude were three of the best minions who’d ever had the pleasure of joining him. When he’d been anointed with his particular abilities, he’d claimed three souls and breathed life back into their worthless bodies. Their contracts were indefinite. Their loyalty bought and paid for. Yet, in all the years they’d been together, a true, unbreakable friendship had solidified between them. Something he never thought possible.

Mads turned to his best friend and shook his head. “Isa’s remembering her parents today. Give them space.”

Rafe cocked a pierced brow. His ashen-colored eyes swirled with disappointment. “He’s too close to her. I don’t understand why you haven’t castrated him yet.” The snarled gnash of his words matched the jealousy slithering through Mads’ veins. Truth was, he’d probably asked himself that question a million times, yet he didn’t have the answer either.

“We have all the time in the world,” Mads muttered. “Perhaps I’d like to play with my food before I gorge myself.”
