Title: The Summer Dare
Series: Summers in Seaside Series
Author: Amanda Shelley
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 11, 2022
 
Summers in Seaside meant time with Nana, my sisters and an entire season at the beach.
 
Nana always took care of everything far in advance, so it shouldn’t be surprising that she’d planned renovations for after she passed.
 
However she failed to mention said plans to anyone.
 
So imagine my surprise, when I’m awoken by the blasting sound of a saw practically coming through my wall, the first official morning of summer break.
 
Not only did I come flying out of bed swinging, but I gave Ryan, the unsuspecting carpenter the surprise of his life, when I came wielding my killer coat hanger and all. Too bad, I was only in a tank and undies and it wasn’t nearly as effective as I’d hoped.
 
Of course, Ryan insists Nana paid for this project in full and he’s only doing his job.
 
But my sisters and I must make this summer memorable without Nana. It was her final request. I refuse to let a tall, pesky, sexy as sin, know-it-all get in our way. Nope – not a chance.
 
For the next few weeks, I do my best to pretend I ignore Ryan – until my youngest sister throws down a dare I can’t back down from.
 
Kiss the next single guy who walks up to the bonfire – or explain to my sisters why I get riled up over Ryan.
 
When Ryan suddenly appears, I know I’m screwed in more ways than one.
 
Not only will my sisters find I’ve been keeping a secret, but from the determined look on Ryan’s face, I’m afraid he’s eager to reveal it to the world as well.
 
What have I gotten myself into?
 
As I walk toward him, one thing is certain – this summer dare will either make or break me.

They say when one door closes, another opens. And in my case, that door leads right to Hell—literally. Though it’s not necessarily a bad thing, as crazy as it may sound since this specific hell dimension is ruled by Osiris, God of the Underworld.
 
And he just might be the only one who can help me save the world from the total devastation the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse will bring. But he’s also the only one standing between me and Lucas, who sacrificed everything so I could live. I’ll do whatever it takes to save him, and if anyone gets in my way, blood will spill.
 
In an attempt to keep the world from completely imploding, Osiris wants to make a deal: he’ll help free my husband in exchange for me staying in the Underworld with him, ruling by his side. It’s not a deal I’d agree to, until I realize how close the archangels are to finding out who I really am.
 
If there’s one thing I know about Hell, it’s that it makes one hell of a hiding place…

Blurb:

Tabitha Grimaldi never expected her life to look like this. Thirty-two and recently divorced. She also never expected to become a cosplaying star and need the services of a bodyguard.

Archie Stryker wasn’t living. He wasn’t sure what he wanted to do after getting out of the military. He didn’t want to get out; they recommended it. When one of his buddies from his former unit starts a protection agency, it seems like the perfect opportunity to get a fresh start.

He was ready for his first mission until he found out who it was for. The childhood friend he always wished he’d pursued something with. She was the one that got away. But last he heard, she was married.

She needs a different bodyguard. Anyone but him. Can she keep her secret from him? The one that she always loved but knew would never think of her in that way. He was her best friend for the longest time.

The only rule the agency really has is not to get personal with the client. It should be simple. He should have let one of the other guys have this assignment, but he couldn’t afford to let one of them get close to her. Not when he still feels this way about her.

Can you keep a secret from the one that got away?

Can you keep a secret to not ruin a friendship?

Sometimes secrets are needed to not lose someone.

 

A.R. Hall has always loved to share stories. She often got in trouble when she was little by making up stories she shouldn’t have. She is a full-time mom, wife, and creator.

 

A.R. Hall writes mostly paranormal and fantasy romance. She loves telling a story that makes you say “that was weird and hot”.

 

When she isn’t writing or creating, she can be found playing in her backyard “hippie” garden or glamping in the woods with friends.

Title: Reigniting Chase
Author: Jeanne St. James
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2022
Cover Design: Golden Czermak @ FuriousFotog

“Absolutely beautiful book…Jeanne St. James has done it again. The pure raw emotion in this book will take your breath away from the very beginning.” ★★★★★ Amazon Review
An unexpected collaboration between two authors that’s hot enough to spark a fire…

Chase
After an excruciating loss, I’m desperate for a fresh start.
Away from the painful memories.
Away from everyone I know and anyone who knows my story.
That’s how I end up in Eagle’s Landing, Pennsylvania.
As a bestselling author, my main reason for moving to a remote mountain cabin is to overcome the writer’s block that crushed my creativity for the past two years. My hope is to rediscover my words in the quiet, small town where no one knows me. Or my past.
A place where I can blend in enough that I become invisible.

Rett
Even though Chase, one of my favorite authors, insists he wants to be left alone, I refuse to let him wallow in whatever’s drowning him.
As a local bookstore owner and author myself, I’m intrigued by the man who’s a master of the written word. Unfortunately, his social skills could use a lot of work.
Even so, I’m determined to pull the irritable and frustrating man out of the dark pit he’s fallen into and back to the surface, no matter how hard he fights it. I only hope dragging Chase down that fiery path just might reignite his spark and that I don’t get burned in the process.

Note: Please check the content warning before reading or purchasing. It can be found at the beginning of the book (accessible by Amazon’s “look inside” feature or by downloading the sample) as well as on my website. This standalone gay romance has a guaranteed HEA, no cheating and no cliffhanger.

Two of my boys are under my cousin’s enchantment. They don’t remember me, they don’t know that they are being manipulated, their minds controlled.

My plan, my goal has changed. I’m not here to hurt them anymore but to help them.

With the aid of the other two boys, we’re doing all we can to break the spell and stop my cousin’s nefarious plans which include killing the boys to take their power and then taking over the world.

Nothing much. Only that.

As my own magic awakes, I need to come to terms with who I really am and my new reality. Yet saving my boys is fast becoming my priority. Incredible as it may seem, I’ve fallen for them – all four of them.

But my cousin isn’t done yet. She has power and plenty of aces up her sleeve. Will I be able to wrestle my boys away from her before it’s too late?

Barb
 is a Carolina girl by right and a Texan by birth. By day she’s a desk jockey for a rural transportation company and a book lover, reading through as many books as she can. At night, though, she turns into her alter ego: a writer—cape optional, depending on her mood.

Her stories are a mix of real-life events, personal experiences, and the craziness of her own imagination and those of her best friends. And when their imaginations blend together, it can be crazy. Barb writes in multiple genres, encounters new adventures, creates new worlds, and has a fantastic time breathing life into new stories, creating something she hopes inspires anyone who reads to fall in love with them as she has.

Barb lives by one little rule: tomorrow is never guaranteed, so make sure you live each day to its fullest.

KA Graham grew up in a small town in Oregon. Through the years, her love for writing and poetry turned into something she had only dreamt of – writing her own book. She’s faced many obstacles in her life, but the love and devotion of her parents have always kept her grounded. She is an avid reader, blogger and does PA work for a few authors, which keeps her quite busy. She’s a hard rock music lover and horror movie buff with a love and appreciation for tattoos. Her addictions include copious amounts of caffeine, Chinese food, and Haribos.

Some lines should never be crossed.
 
Blake Willis has the perfect life – a beautiful wife, two great kids, and a thriving business doing what he loves as a cybersecurity consultant. Determined to secure his family’s financial future, Blake enlists the help of an old friend, tech billionaire and world-renowned whisky expert, Justin Coulter, to help him sell his grandpa’s “million-dollar moonshine.”
 
Everything is running smoothly until a shocking discovery rocks Blake’s world. The whisky is stolen and his caretaker is murdered. And worse, his wife is missing.
 
In a frantic race against time, the lines of trust blur. Blake’s friends and enemies — and maybe even his wife — are not who he thought they were. And the technology, money and global control at stake have now drawn disreputable foreign powers into the mix.
 
Is there anyone who he can trust — and who has crossed the line that can never be uncrossed?

Prologue

The call changed everything.

The call ordering me to stand down. I stood, walking in circles, the rage stiffening my neck, eyes drawn to my gun safe. I paced toward it, then shuffled back. They had kidnapped my wife, intent on destroying me. But I didn’t know who or why.

I had held a gun many times in the last decade, but not since protecting the US Secretary of State several years ago. It was the first and only time I killed anyone. I’d never completely recovered. I hated guns, hated killing, until now. Sometimes killing was necessary. Grandpa had taught me that. And I would again if that’s what it took to get Rebecca back.

Approaching the safe, I removed the Glock 17 and 26. The only thing that mattered was rescuing Rebecca.

Our sons needed their mother, I needed my wife, and would do anything to find her or die trying.
