Title: Crow

Series: Devil’s Murder MC #1
Author: Nikki Landis
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 24, 2022
 
 
 


 
 
From USA Today bestselling author Nikki Landis comes a new standalone MC romance and the first book in the Devil’s Murder MC series.
 
Crow, son of the former president of the Devil’s Murder MC, is determined to avenge his father’s death and repair the broken club left behind. Bad blood, bitter memories, and a territory feud decades in the making threaten to tear apart everything his father built. He might have left town to escape his past, but now there’s no choice. He’s determined to return and take his place among his brothers, even if they don’t want his leadership.
 
He didn’t forget what it means to live by the cut. The brotherhood is all he knows. It’s all he cares about since learning of his father’s murder: that and revenge.
 
Crow has a hell of a lot to prove, and it can’t come at a worse time. Stopping at a bar on the way back to reclaim his position in the club, he encounters a pretty petite redhead in a whole heap of trouble. His protective instincts kick in, and now he’s got more problems than he can handle.
 
Crow can’t resist helping out a woman in need, but this spitfire is way more trouble than he anticipates. Bella’s searching for her missing sister and desperate for help, even if that means bargaining with a dangerous biker. For reasons Crow can’t quite figure out, she makes him feel like a goddamn hero, like a man who can live inside the law instead of out of it.
 
Now there’s a rival club on their heels and innocent lives on the line. Taking her back to the clubhouse for protection sparks a whole shitstorm Crow doesn’t need. Bella insists he’s the only hope for finding her sister, and time is running out.
 
Nobody messes with this feisty redhead. And nobody threatens the Devil’s Murder because the club protects their own. Whatever the cost. There’s a reason the club is called a murder, and their bikes ride on the dark wings of circling crows. It’s an omen of impending death. No enemy can outrun the Devil’s Murder.
 
CROW is a full-length, standalone bad boy romance. You’ll love this heart-pounding first book in the Devil’s Murder MC featuring take-charge bikers who adore and fiercely protect their women. CROW has no cheating, no cliffhanger, plenty of heat, and a guaranteed HEA along with a slight paranormal twist.

Blurb:

L is for Loser

I would rather stick a fork in my eye than to attend my niece’s wedding without a date. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family. But having to put up with an entire week of pitying glances and questions about when I’m going to “meet a nice man my age,” is a form of cruel and unusual torture I would rather not subject myself to.

 

Thankfully, I have a great group of guy friends, and each of them owes me a solid one. Like it or not, one of them is going to help me. None want to volunteer, so we’re going to play a game. The loser flies to Ohio with me to pose as my loving boyfriend for all the wedding festivities.

 

I’m the loser who has to fake having a boyfriend to fool my family. He’s the loser at a simple game of chance. The one thing neither of us are walking away with… is our dignity.

Desiree is a snarky romance author from Northwest Ohio with a completely healthy addiction to anime and snacks. She also writes paranormal romance under the pen name D. Gemini.

“Well,” CJ stretched his legs out in front of him and raised his arms over his head and rolled his neck from side to side. “What do you think you’re going to do?”

 

“Exactly what I said I’d do. I’m going to the wedding, and I’m going to be the best fake boyfriend she ever had.”

 

“Will you have to share a bed?”

 

“Most likely.”

 

“Gonna be okay with that?”

 

“Absolutely.” It would be torture, but I was a man in control of myself.

 

CJ turned his head, took a pull from his beer, looked me square in the eye and burped.

 

“What if she farts in her sleep?” I couldn’t help but laugh.

 

“CJ, everyone farts in their sleep.”

 

“Jessica doesn’t.” CJ was dead serious. “She goes in the bathroom. Never once in our entire relationship has she ever passed gas in front of me. She said her mom’s been married to her dad for forty years and she’s never done it either.

 

“That’s fucking weird, CJ.”

 

CJ burped again and picked at a piece of foam sticking out of the arm of his chair.

 

“I don’t want to hear that from you.”

VIKINGS FROM MARS WILL BE MOVING TO 
KINDLE UNLIMITED ON JUNE 28, 2022
 
Earth was never going back to normal. All that was left in the post-apocalyptic destruction were humans trying to find enough food to survive … and running from the aliens who had come to scavenge what was left.
Raine had never been a particularly brave woman. She preferred staying at home, sipping on a latte while reading a good romance book, rather than making an effort to become hurt by a real relationship.
She only managed to survive the nuclear war by being at the right place at the right time. Now, as if having to contend with lack of food and dodging different species of aliens wanting to make her their next meals wasn’t bad enough, the other survivors in her group blame her for being a jinx for every catastrophe that has happened to them.
How was she supposed to know the feral man who she had saved was an alien Viking from Mars? How could it be her fault that, when she snuck out to check on him, two other women from her group followed and got themselves kidnapped?And, how could she be blamed for finding herself married to an alien by the simple act of saving his life?
She wasn’t a jinx; she was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Still, it hurt that her new husband was beginning to think the same way as the group of survivors and wanted to give her back to the humans.
While she wasn’t crazy about the Martian side of Skars, the Viking part of her husband was hot and, like any heroine from the stories she had read, she was determined to prove her worth to him. Well, if she wasn’t barbecued first.
Jamie Begley is not your average Kentucky girl, and while she does like to cook her southern meals, this down-home momma prefers living in her biker and alien worlds!

Title: Royal Rebel
Author: JJ Knight
Genre: Standalone Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 13, 2022

You’ve never made a mistake like mine.
It’s bad enough being a bloomin’ princess.
It’s not all cake and tiaras.
There’s rules. Expectations.
Your internet is censored. Your cell phones are tapped.
And your father is literally king.
Mine made a law that no man between the age of seven and thirty is allowed to work inside the palace.
Which means I’m surrounded by kitchen staff, female guards, and a dusty old tutor named Maurice.
Now I’m twenty-three with zero experience around men. I’ve never even texted one.
But on the castle lawn, there are dozens of hunky new guards working out below the tower. I spy on them every day.
I’ve chosen one.
Kind. Beautiful. Strong.
I sneak through the underground tunnels to surprise him in the rose garden and tell him how I feel.
Except when I finally confess my love through the trellis, and we walk to the end of the hedge to begin our forbidden romance…
I realize I’ve accidentally propositioned the biggest playboy in the palace.
__
Royal Rebel is a standalone romantic comedy about a princess who breaks all the rules, overzealous donkeys that interrupt make-out sessions, and a hunky guard who thinks he’ll never, ever, limit himself to one woman — until he does.

The Princess peers up at me. “Are you going to give me a movie screen kiss or not?”


Hell yes, I am.


If caution is a yellow flag, I fling it out of sight. I clasp the back of her head, threading my fingers through her hair. I pull her to me roughly until our bodies are flush together fully along their length.


I bend down and don’t wait for her to come to me. I pull her face to mine, delving instantly into her mouth. She opens in surprise as my tongue licks against hers. She’s warm honey and peppermint, yielding and soft.


After a moment, her body molds into mine. Her tongue comes for me, and her pulse flutters beneath my thumb at her throat. She lets out a sound and presses her pelvis against me.


With only a few inches between our heights, she lands where her body instinctively knows where to aim. I respond instantly, stiffening between us.


She pulls her face from mine, her eyes big as she looks up at me. “Is that…”


I want to grab her hips and grind into her. I’m fiercely in need. But I control myself. “It is.”


“What do I do with it?”


Oh, I could tell her.


She goes on. “Should I pretend it isn’t happening? It didn’t when I danced with that random guy. How often does it happen?”


I draw in a ragged breath. Her innocence is shocking, delectable. I want to break it wide open, right here, against a brick wall, pounding her until we both disintegrate into nothing.


Down, boy.


“You don’t have to talk about it. A guy knows it’s happening. It’s natural. Part of the process.”


“Already? Just from kissing? I thought we had to be naked. And ready to do that thing!”


“It can happen anytime.”


Her eyes go even wider. “Like at dinner? Or while driving a car?” She draws in a sharp breath. “Around your grandma?”


Okay, with that thought, I no longer have a problem. I let out a breath. “Probably not around a grandma. It’s a stage in the process. It’s not as obvious in women as men.”


“Is it happening to me?” She glances down at her jeans as if she might produce an erection or some other obvious sign. “Wait. Is that what they call a lady boner?”


I can’t stop myself from laughing. “Sort of. But not literally. You don’t have an outward sign.”


“What is my sign?”


Jesus. “A dampness. It’s called getting wet.”


“I’ve heard that phrase. They mean down there!”


“Yes.”


“It’s not pee, is it?”
