Elara:

As an infant, I was abandoned on the steps of a church.

My childhood was spent in an abusive foster home.

At nineteen, I killed someone.

 

Not long after, three men in black cloaks kidnap me and whisk me through a magical portal to a world I never knew existed. A world they say is my home. But the enchanting realm of Celestria is in turmoil. A dark enemy has infiltrated the land and is attempting to seize control. The last hope of the people of Celestria is locating Changelings in the mortal world… like me.

 

Yet an assessment of my magic leads to a shocking revelation. Someone used a powerful spell to suppress my powers. But who? And why?

 

Prince Kage Dargan:

The moment I see her, my world pauses.

Though we’ve never met, the girl is familiar to me.

Since I was a boy… she has visited me in my dreams.

 

Even so, I can’t let my guard down around her. The last Changeling I trusted tried to kill me. Besides, my attraction to her is a temptation I can’t risk. My parents arranged my upcoming marriage years ago and breaking that pact could have steep consequences.

 

Still, I have to wonder why the girl from my dreams has finally appeared. Is it fate? Or something far more sinister?

Cameo was born in San Francisco, raised in Maui, Hawaii, and now resides with her husband in Las Vegas. She is a dreamer and caffeine addict who loves to laugh and loves to read to escape reality.

 

One of her greatest satisfactions is creating fantasy worlds filled with adventure and romance. It is the love and incredible support of her family and fans that keeps her going. One day she hopes to uncover a magic wardrobe and ride away on a unicorn. Until then . . . she’ll keep writing!

Kendall
My life has been an endless loop of heartache and breakup songs.
I’ve lived in fear that I’m broken and will never find the kind of love that would piece me back together into something whole.
When my boyfriend proposes, I say yes, desperate for an easy fix. For a super-glue solution.
But, on the day of my wedding, when my dad tells me to follow my heart, it doesn’t lead me down the aisle.
Instead, it takes me straight to Declan Pierce’s car—where I crash his road trip.
The more time we spend together, the more he shows me it’s okay to be broken.
With him, lyrics aren’t just words on paper.
Promises aren’t just whispers in the dark.
And having a few cracks…well, they help the light come through.
Declan
I’ve had feelings for my best friend’s sister for as long as I can remember.
Watching her jump from guy to guy, I’ve been biding my time, waiting for the right moment to tell her.
And then she does something I never thought she’d do…she gets engaged.
This is the part where I’m starting to accept that the woman I love will never be mine.
Until she jumps into my car in her wedding gown and tells me to floor it.
With Kendall in my passenger seat and the past in the rearview mirror, I plan to do whatever it takes to show her that she doesn’t need super glue.
She needs to find the beauty in the cracks.

Title: Sin’s Betrayal

Series:  Ravage Riders MC
Author: Nikki Landis
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: November 30, 2022

Mack Ravage is an outlaw with a bad reputation.
I should know. I created him with every breath, bad decision, and regret I’ve made over the last twenty years. That’s why I shouldn’t want her – the sweet, pretty, young single mom that walks into my clubhouse. I promise her safety. I swear the club will protect her and her daughter. Hell, I even let her stay and give her a room.
She’s too wide-eyed, innocent, trusting, and too damn adorable for her own good. I’m not gonna touch her. I swear I’m gonna keep my distance. And then her eyes rake over me and burn like hot coals over my skin.
My Sergeant at Arms Valan thinks she wants him, but I know better. Her eyes only brighten when I’m in the room. Her smile grows broader when I look in her direction. And the heat – it cranks up a good ten degrees when our eyes meet.
None of this matters when the past decides to show up at our door. The Ravage Riders won’t be bullied. This is our town. We own it, and we damn well do as we please. Valan? Our enemies? The age difference? None of that matters.
I’m the president of this club. I take what I want, and I want Charlotte. Nothin’ is standing in my way.
 
*** Note: This book can be read as a standalone, but for best enjoyment should be read in order. It includes an age-gap, forced proximity romance, steamy scenes, biker slang, cursing, violence, dark content, a paranormal twist, and, of course, an HEA. If you like alpha males who take charge, this book is for you

Title: Flirting With the Enemy
Series: Harbor Highlands Series
Author: Gia Stevens
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 27, 2022
 
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.
★★★★★ Let’s Read Romance – “The banter is witty, the dialogue delivered with a one-two punch that’ll have you laughing your ass off”
 
★★★★★ Goodreads Review – “If you enjoy romantic comedies, contemporary romance, a good amount of spice, AND getting emotional, this book is for you!”
 
★★★★★  Randi Reviews – “….boy did Gia Stevens deliver and then some.”
 
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: Hate Games
Author: M Jameson
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Enemies to Lovers
Release Date: November 29, 2022

“I love everything by M Jameson and this book was no exception! I couldn’t put it down until I was through. Ryder and Ash were just gasoline together, chemistry off the charts. He was a perfect jealous/possessive alpha who loses his shit and can be an a-hole when he wants to.” – Goodreads Reviewer

I knew she was trouble. The kind of trouble you’ll never be able to run from. The good kind.
When Asher moves in with her aunt in the elite college town of Rothwell, all she wants to do is keep her head down and remain the wallflower she’s always been. But one encounter with the town’s badest playboy threatens to unravel her plans.
Ryder’s number one rule is ‘no connections’ but the new girl is getting under his skin. All his attempts to ruin her backfire when their hate games and sizzling chemistry collide.

“Does humiliating a woman make you feel like a big man, little boy?” 

“What did you say to me?” I tilt my head, annoyed and intrigued that the tiny thing has the balls to insult me. She frowns, and I’m irritated to find I like her frown. She repeats herself slowly, likely for emphasis.

“You have no idea who the fuck I am, do you?”

She scoffs at me. “Just ‘cause your daddy thinks he owns this town and donated some money to get a school named after him doesn’t make you special, Ryder Rothwell.” 

Oh, the girl has no fucking idea how many lines she’s crossing. I close the short distance between us in a few strides. The closer I get, the more frustrated I become. The girl doesn’t flinch. She just stands with her hands on her small hips, chin jutted out in defiance. My eyes roam down to the slim column of her neck, and my fingers ache to reach down and wrap around it.

She cocks a brow. “Boys like you don’t scare me, never have, and never fucking will.”

“You sure about that, sweetheart?”

“Oh, I’m all kinds of sure.” She stares me down, shoulders past me, and walks toward Cassandra, who stands watching our exchange with a stunned expression. 

“You alright?” Marcella’s cousin, A — something, asks Cassandra. I didn’t even catch the girl’s name when Dylan was begging me to invite her to my party, but now I want to know, so I can make her regret ever talking to me the way she did.

“I don’t need you to stand up for me,” Cassandra snaps.

“See there, kitten. Some girls know their place.”

She turns toward me. “Where’s that?”

“At my feet.” 

Her cheeks redden, and I turn away, climbing into my Wrangler. Oh, she’s going to be sorry. Nobody crosses me and gets away with it.

M Jameson enjoys writing steamy, taboo, and forbidden stories. Sometimes dark, sometimes angsty, but sexiness and HEA (albeit not conventional) guaranteed. Jameson loves to delve into the hard topics and pushing the limits, so if you’re looking for escapism and like your boundaries crushed, she’s your go-to.

Title: Fire in Stone

Series: Fire in Stone Duet #1
Author: Marina Simcoe
Genre: Fantasy Romance, Romantic Phantasy, Gargoyle/Dragon Romance
Release Date: December 27, 2022
I stole a statue to buy a better future for myself. But when my gargoyle comes to life, can I give him up?
 
Brought to the end of my rope, I steal a statue from a traveling menagerie. The money I’ve been promised for it is supposed to buy me a new start in life.
 
It sounds simple: steal the statue, hand it to the buyer, get paid.
 
But when my precious statue suddenly comes to life, claiming he’s a gargoyle prince who was taken against his will from the magical kingdom in Nerifir, things change drastically. Now, we have the supernatural beings from the menagerie after us, eager to get Elex back, and the local mafia who wish to get their hands on the pricey statue, too.
 
Like a true piece of art, Elex is gorgeous, either in flesh or stone. But is he worth risking my life for him?
 
When he takes me higher than I’ve ever been, I realize it’s not just my life I’m risking with him. With Elex, my heart may be in even greater danger, as I have to find the strength to part from him forever.
 
 
Marina Simcoe loves to write romance with ordinary human heroines and out-of-this-world heroes who just can’t live without them.
She has lots of fun exploring how her otherworldly characters with their own set of beliefs, values, and aspirations fit into our everyday life.

Dark magic and a raging libido can get a girl in trouble…

 

They say never mix magic with pleasure, but after one too many bad dates, that’s exactly what I do.

 

To my surprise, instead of getting off, I get a portal to another realm and a hulking, terrifying monster in my bedroom. As expected, he isn’t happy to be there.

 

But there’s another problem.

 

My dark magic has bound us together, making our desires undeniable and putting us both in grave danger.

 

Breaking the spell means losing the one thing I fought so hard to find.

 

And I’m not sure I’m willing to lose my monstrous lover just yet.

She writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance.
