Dylan
Wrecker is dead. I keep on repeating it to myself over and over again as I chase after Becca. I need her forgiveness for all the ways I hurt her not only to save myself and her, but also to save my son. Getting her back is easy. Keeping her is not. I am not here for a relationship but to give us both closure. Becca has other ideas.
Becca
Just when I think I’m getting my life back together, Dylan crashes into it and changes everything. He tells me that he doesn’t want me forever and that he will leave. He needs me to understand it. Yet, he refuses to go away. When life gives us both more than we can handle, it is my turn to send him on his way with no remorse.
***WARNING*** This book is Part Three of the Wrecked series, and it ends in a cliffhanger.

Ben
I know why I lost her. I was too serious, I was too practical. I was too busy thinking I knew what she wanted without asking her.
Over time, this wore on her. All she wanted was to be heard. She wanted someone to support her big exciting ideas, I was supposed to do that, but I shut them down. No wonder she handed me my ring back and left town. No wonder she married someone else, leaving me with memories of sunsets at the beach and the future I had planned for us.
I went on and built my life without her. My father and I opened the second division of Sunset Builders in Las Vegas, and to my surprise, I stayed busy, almost busy enough not to notice the loneliness. That was until one day I was called to do a quick bathroom and kitchen remodel for a woman who lived on Las Vegas Boulevard. I shouldn’t of gone, I should have sent one of my men because when I arrived, and the door opened, every memory I’d had of Jessica came flooding back.
If I’d learned anything in her absence it was that anything worth doing was worth being done well, and anything worth having was worth fighting for. I just hoped she’d give me a second chance.
Jessica
Ben had always been right to keep me grounded. I should’ve listened because the falls didn’t hurt as bad that way.
I wanted a bigger life, in a bigger brighter place. I never appreciated the beauty of living in a small town with a huge support system. Instead, I left town without so much as a goodbye, chasing a silly dream.
I married the man who promised me the sun, moon, and the stars, but delivered blinding blows. I spent years hiding in the dark so that no one would see my bruised face. Most days, I thought I’d die before I escaped the nightmare. I dreamed of running, it was my only way out. Then I got news my grandfather had passed. He left me money and a gorgeous condo in Vegas. I had a plan. I would upgrade the condo, sell it, and fade away into the sunset, all while my husband was gone on a business trip.
Little did I know that Ben would show up on my doorstep. He swore we could make our dreams real, but this time I was the grounded one. I could only see how we would never work. I’d made too many mistakes and love was terrifying.

Title: Jackal
Series: Death Hounds MC #4
Author: H.J. Marshall
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 23, 2022
Cover Design: Dark Water Cover Design

My life was a nightmare wrapped in dark secrets. Separated from my sister at an early age, I was surrounded by twisted depravity that threatened to tear me apart. After losing everything and everyone I loved, I was cast out into a world I wasn’t prepared for. The Death Hounds saved my daughter from a life of misery and through them, I was reunited with her.

He saw the darkest parts of my soul and embraced them, offering me love and support unlike anything I’d ever experienced. He knew some of my secrets, but there were still dangers lurking in the shadows. He had his own demons that called him into the darkness, but together, we fought the darkness and began to build a future.

When faced with a vile monster from my past, I used the strength he gave me and fought to survive. My saviors on steel horses came to my rescue, but this time, a Death Hound was caught in the crossfire. Would the club still support me, or would they cast me back into a life of isolation?

With darkness closing in again, the only one who could protect me was the man who held my heart, and would destroy the world, just to see me smile. But when the truth is finally revealed, would he still be standing by my side, or would my daughter and I have to face the world alone?

Title: Heat
Author: TL Travis
Genre: MM Romance
Cover Designer: Indie Sage
Model: Simon
Photog: Paul Henry Serres
Publication Date: May 25th, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

What do you get when you throw a burly blacksmith and the town’s poster child for clumsiness together?

 

A whole lot of swearing and a threatening use of duct tape.

 

And the need to construct a sign that reads, “DO NOT LET CAMPBELL NEAR THE FORGE!”

 

Alabaster Falls’ local blacksmith, Daughtry Blackburn, was satisfied with his reclusive status. He had iron to bend and orders to fill but he knew he needed something to take the business to the next level. His father had fought taking their business into the twenty-first century, but since he’d passed, it was up to Daughtry to keep things forward moving and he knew there was no way to do so without being on the World Wide Web. Metalworking, he got. Computers, not so much.

 

Campbell Jenkins was desperate to be accepted by his peers in the little town he’d called home since birth. Problem was, he was accident-prone. Not just in the sense of an occasional break here or there, but in a “can’t walk by glass without it shattering – even when it seemed he was a mile away” type of thing. No matter how hard he tried to fit in, this curse led to failure. Forced to stay stuck inside the walls of the home his grandmother left him, he spent his time learning all he could about computers and social media. His online friends never cast him aside—too bad the real world wasn’t as kind.

 

When he answers an ad in the local paper for online marketing assistance, he wasn’t sure what to expect. Least of all, the brawny man answering the door to a log cabin that had seen better days.

 

Can two opposites in forced proximity learn to play nicely or will one wind up in an iron grave?

TL Travis is an award winning, published author of LGBTQIA+ contemporary romance and erotic musings that have earned a “Best-Selling Author” flag in the US and Internationally.

 

In her spare time, when she’s not weaving steamy webs, she enjoys spending time with her family, fishing, wine tasting and people watching. Everyone has a story to tell, half the fun is dreaming up with what it is.

 

TL is surrounded by her 4-legged rescue family, her sons and adorable grandkids.

She will continue saving furry friends in need for as long as she breathes. Tl would like to remind you to “Adopt, not shop.” Saving that lost soul may very well save yours.

Title: Surrender
Author: Ariana Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 25, 2022
 
 
 
 
 
★★★★★’s from Goodreads Reviewer – “Surrender is a very enjoyable read, very steamy and intriguing. I was so curious how their love would survive.”
 
★★★★’s from @booklover0596 – “I always know when I want a fantastic and steamy story, I can depend on any of Ariana Rose’s. Surrender did not disappoint.”
 
Ava Caron, a successful and hardworking PR strategist, finds herself in unfamiliar territory when her engagement is unexpectedly and dramatically called off. A getaway with her best friend seems to be exactly what’s needed to clear her mind, body and spirit. She never expects to make a connection with a man who appears to have walked right off the silver screen and into her life without warning, much like the heroes of her favorite fairy tales.

Rafael Varallo is made of leading man material with his rugged good looks, chivalry, and charm that would make any woman fall at his feet. The last thing he’s expecting is to take a fall of his own, when an accidental encounter involving spilled coffee and a pair of beautiful hands capture his attention immediately. His proposal for adventure to step outside of their comfort zones is all it takes.

To surrender isn’t weakness, it’s strength.

Sand, sex, laughs and perhaps even love make for a heady combination and in paradise things may not always be what you expect.

 
 
 
Author and hopeless romantic, Ariana Rose, dabbles in all forms of contemporary romance. All of her novels do have one thing in common. Her heroes and heroines are as passionate about life and love as they are about each other.
A proud mother of two, she was born and raised in the Minneapolis area. She’s always been a storyteller and known to have a flair for the dramatic. Her daughter is just across the border finishing her college career and is a go to for all things graphic design. Her son is a busy middle schooler who loves all things penguins, science, gaming, cars and the weather. Ariana’s fur baby (a beagle/lab) can be found curled next to her while she writes unless chasing squirrels and finding puppy friends become a higher priority.
When Ariana is not writing, she can be found at the rink in a figure skating lesson, binge watching her favorite shows, screening an 80s movie she’s seen hundreds of times, exploring history or traveling to any of her current or new favorite places.
Ariana first published in August of 2018. Her Stone Series was the leaping point. It’s fourth installment will debut in October 2021. She has two novels in K. Bromberg’s Driven World, Twisted with its sequel Entwined. The concluding chapter Pivot, will follow in February 2022. You can find her first sports romance, Bitter Edge, in the Cocky Hero World. Double Exposure, her first co-write, also releases in February 2022.
You can find her exclusively in Kindle Unlimited. You can also sign up for her newsletter, watch her website or find her on all her social media to catch all the latest and greatest on upcoming projects.
Always remember that passion is never a bad thing, it’s where dreams and reality collide.

Title: His Wife

Series: Dark Sovereign Series #2
Author: Bella J.
Genre: Dark Romance/Mafia Romance
Release Date: July 6, 2022
Cover Design: Cormar Covers
I am no longer the stray he picked up off the street. I am…His Wife.
 
Alexius Del Rossa made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.
A temporary arrangement. One that would benefit us both.
Be his wife for six months so he can solidify his legacy, and I walk away with the security of having the Del Rossa name.
 
Now I realize that it’s no longer that simple—not while his every command bends my will and entices me to obey.
 
We’ve become each other’s poison—a toxic mix of his wicked touch and my dark desires.
By day I’m the woman who walks by his side, and by night I’m the toy who kneels at his feet.
He’s given me a taste of how it feels to indulge without limits, a glimpse of what life would be like as the queen of his empire.
 
But I can’t ignore the warnings. The subtle stir of whispers that nothing is as it seems.
 
Even though Alexius helped me conquer my demons once…I’m afraid my husband might just be the real monster I should fear.

Each time he touches me, I feel it deeper, its effect more profound. It digs deep into my soul, penetrating every wall I have ever built. I’m weak against it, unable to fight the descent into oblivion with him, lost forever, and God knows I never want to be found. Not as long as I’m with him.

At night in bed, just the feel of his breath against my skin has my blood instantly rushing to the surface, heat accelerating through my body, causing my head to spin with the promise of pleasure he delivers every single time.

I’ve never been one to play with fire, yet with him, I crave to burn. I pray for my destruction if it means I can find my ruin in his palms, his fingers, his mouth, his body. I never imagined that I’d one day find myself in the arms of a man whose name once sent shivers down my spine. Now, his name ignites a spark—no, a raging inferno that makes my body ache for him.

Alexius.

Alexius Del Rossa.

My husband.

The man I vowed to hate only to fall into the snake pit where my heart now only beats for him. I am his. I want only him. Every second spent with him is one moment closer to my undoing. I know it. I can feel it in my soul. Alexius would be the end of me.
