Blurb:
Entering the woods is forbidden. To go in can mean a fate worse than death. At least that’s what seventeen-year-old Laura has been told. But living in a new town with nothing to do, she ignores her mother’s dire warnings and explores the forest near her home. 

The trees entice Laura deeper into the woods. A mysterious, soothing voice calls her name, and she becomes lost. When a young man finds her, she thinks she’s saved. But he insists their meeting is more than a coincidence. For centuries, his colony has been waiting for a savior. With his alluring eyes and gentle smile, Laura almost believes his crazy story. 

Caught between worlds, and with her life at stake, she doesn’t know who to believe or trust. Her heart tells her one thing and her head another.

Is it her destiny, or will her fate only postpone the inevitable?

Karri Thompson, a native of San Diego, attended San Diego State University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in English and master’s degree in education. When she’s not writing novels and teaching high school English, she can be found nerding out at San Diego Comic-Con and cooking delicious meals for her family.

            The hair on my arms rose. My heart thumped hard, the blood pulsing through my chest into my throat. Looking left and right, my muscles tensed to run or fight.

“Who’s there? What do you want?” I said at the same low whisper, my voice shaking.

A shimmering blur disappeared behind a tree—a featureless something, flashing in indistinguishable color as quickly as a silent whip.

“Laura,” someone said again, gentle and feather-light, drifting between the largest trees in front of me.

I held my breath.

“Laura.” My name resonated through the humid night air, echoing through the sugar maples before it thinned and died.

It was a male voice, full- bodied, but lacking malevolence and hostility. Strangely, it put me at ease. There must be a boy somewhere out here in the woods. I was sure of it. The voice sounded young, maybe my age of seventeen.

            Or maybe it was a ghost. My Uncle Dean had told me the locals believed these woods were haunted. But ghosts couldn’t kill. At least that’s what I believed.

“Who are you?” I asked, relaxing my stiff muscles just enough to take a step forward. My shoulders dropped as I exhaled a pent-up breath. Broadening my stance, I leaned forward, raising the branch, and squeezed my eyes shut, hoping to hear it again.

“Laura,” it repeated. The word lingered through the dead of night, ringing softly in my ears. I opened my eyes.

 “How do you know my name?” I asked, moving toward the direction of the voice. As a cool breeze rustled my pajama shorts, I wrapped one arm around myself.

A bird chirp rode the wind, followed by several more, weaving into a rhythm of tweets and trills. I looked up. Within the tousle of leaves and sway of thin limbs, perched a gathering of birds, flexing their wings for flight.

I took a step backwards, my eyes fixed on the canopy of leaves.

The bird calls increased, one squawk overlapping the other until their unique melody collapsed, twisting into an eerie song and wing beats.

“A–are you still there?” I breathed, eyeing the woods ahead of me and taking another step back.

A smear of color flashed to my left, and a cloud of leaves rose from the forest floor.

“Don’t go,” I said, breaking from a whisper.

The woods resonated with angry bird speak, their unnatural song thumping in my ears.

“I want to see you,” I shouted above the rising mad twitter.

A shadow skated across the ground at my feet. Wings flapped overhead, and a bird beak met my scalp with a hard peck.

Have you ever made a daring move? 

Di Jenson is a successful Broadway dancer who makes a bet with bad boy Van Vanzant to dance at Vanz, his exclusive gentlemen’s club. The bet? That Di can make more money with one dance than all the rest of the club’s dancers combined—without taking her clothes off. 

Van accepts the bet because he hasn’t been able to forget his blind date with Di the year before. He wants to show her he’s more than a guy whose name is synonymous with adult entertainment. Despite the fact that Di is drawn to the bad boy in Van, she knows she can’t respect a guy in his line of business. But when she dances at his club, the bet turns into something neither will soon forget. 

Can a bad boy with secrets win the heart of a dancer who dares to make a Scandalous Move?

Zachariah ‘Doc’ Keiffer was raised to go after his dreams.

Successful career in the army—check.

Beautiful girlfriend—check. Everything was going to plan—until it wasn’t.

Injured and medically discharged with a girlfriend unable to accept his injuries, Doc turned to

the people and place he knew where he had a chance to be part of a brotherhood again.

Finally, he once more had a purpose—with the Wounded Souls MC. Life was going well until

she happened. His dream.

Meagan Steel was born to be a princess. Growing up as the daughter of the Wounded Souls

VP, she never doubted she was loved and adored. Her MC family was everything to her, she

loved them beyond measure, but there was always something missing. Meagan wanted

what her beloved parents had together, and she wanted it with the newly appointed

president of the Wounded Souls Queenscliff chapter.

Doc wanted her, that much Meagan knew. Transferring closer to the new compound,

Meagan knew the risks she was taking. Doc had more troubles than just his new position,

his life was complicated, to say the least. Not only that, she may not live long enough to get

that first kiss she had been dreaming about, once her father finds out his firstborn is lusting

after a biker.

 

About Leah Sharelle:

Leah Sharelle loves the idea of being in love. Since her early teens when she first

discovered Silhouette Desire novels, her life has been all about reading. She would find

herself rewriting scenes if she wasn’t happy with them and then would hide them under her

bed. That led her to writing love stories of her own. They all ended up under her bed and are

still there – where she says they will stay.

Living in Victoria, Australia, Leah is a mum of three beautiful girls, Gigi to her adorable

grandchildren, and she has what some say is a weird sense of humour. She spends her free

time watching movies, having Sons of Anarchy and Friends marathons, and or course

reading. She doesn’t do angst. In fact, it drives her crazy. She loves Pina Coladas and

getting caught in the rain. There’s that weird humour.

About the Author

By day Ann Grech lives in the corporate world and can be found sitting behind a desk typing away at reports and papers or lecturing to a room full of students. She graduated with a PhD in 2016 and is now an over-qualified nerd. Glasses, briefcase, high heels and a pencil skirt, she’s got the librarian look nailed too. If only they knew! She swears like a sailor, so that’s got to be a hint. The other one was “the look” from her tattoo artist when she told him that she wanted her kids initials “B” and “J” tattooed on her foot. It took a second to register that it might be a bad idea.

She’s never entirely fit in and loves escaping into a book—whether it’s reading or writing one. But she’s found her tribe now and loves her MM book world family. She dislikes cooking, but loves eating, can’t figure out technology, but is addicted to it, and her guilty pleasure is Byron Bay Cookies. Oh and shoes. And lingerie. And maybe handbags too. Well, if we’re being honest, we’d probably have to add her library too given the state of her credit card every month (what can she say, she’s a bookworm at heart)!

She also publishes her raunchier short stories under her pen name, Olive Hiscock.

MONTANA MOONSHINE

(Book #1 in the Montana Cowboys series) by Vi Summers

He’s a cowboy…

She’s a convicted felon.

★.•°`☆ MY REVIEW ☆`°•.★

***** 5 Stars

I adored this unique take on a cowboy story.
Brandon was running a successful program for convicted felons.
They were able to come to his ranch to finish out their sentence. He made them work hard, it wasn’t an easy pass.
Louisiana was the first female into the program and oh my, didn’t that set the pigeon amongst the proverbial cats? Louisiana needed the opportunity to prove she could get her life back on track and she knows there are lines that couldn’t, or shouldn’t be crossed.
The attraction between her and Brandon seemed to have a life of it’s own, but if they gave in to the want, the lust, everything Louisiana had worked for would be gone.
Can they take a step back?
Will the lines blur?
Will they both risk losing everything?
You’ll have to read this brilliant tale to find out.
Well done Vi Summers.

★.•°`☆ Synopsis ☆`°•.★

Montana Moonshine is a second-chance, forbidden, cowboy romance.

Brandon

Six convicted felons have been through my ranch rehabilitation program—all of them men.

Until now.

The seventh obliterated every damn rule I had.

Blonde hair and an attitude to boot, Louisiana Carlyle was like no other, and totally off-limits.

Ironically, while doing time for grand larceny, she unlawfully stole my heart.

Louisiana

Eight months behind bars. Eight months separated from the one I’d give my life for.

Riding out the remaining three months of my sentence on a cattle ranch should be easy, right?

Turns out, it wasn’t for this city gal. Not with a cowboy like Brandon Nash in charge.

He made me trust again. He made me whole again.

And damn him, he made me fall in love again.

Blurb:

Regrets. She has a few. 

Nothing went how Sparrow Malone planned. Her boyfriend didn’t get clean. She didn’t take the entrance exam, and the motorcycle club her father had been a part of is crumbling. To add insult to injury, Jacob didn’t stay in Montana. 

Screw him over once, shame on her. Do it twice, shame on him. Jacob gave up on Sparrow when he left without her two years ago. But Odin’s Fury Motorcycle Club still had business in Ohio, which meant he did too. 

The first time, it wasn’t their fault. Their second chance didn’t end well. While both swore never to repeat past mistakes, they can’t help themselves. 

With the two clubs merging into one, it’s either going to be third time’s a charm or three strikes and they’re out.

Victoria Jayne is the epitome of a Jersey Girl. She doesn’t [know how to] pump her own gas, enjoys pork roll, and grew up on the Jersey Shore. The only daughter sandwiched between two brothers, she was a bit of a Tom-boy as a child.

As an adult, she’s lived throughout the state of New Jersey. She graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. She earned her Masters degree in Marriage, Couples and Family Counseling from Walden University. She’s worked in the human services field since 2005.

She met her sports journalist husband in an online audio/visual chat room. After a few years of dating, they got married and have two darling daughters.

When not writing, Victoria enjoys baking with her daughters, rooting for the New Jersey Devils, thinking of home improvement projects for her husband, and staying up far too late chatting on Discord.

NOW LIVE!

A fling, a moment of weakness, a fond memory, those were the things Jacob Karolsson was supposed to be. He was supposed to stay in her goddamn fantasy and in fucking Montana.

Okay, one time. There was one time she’d allow him into Ohio. The rally. She’d concede that. He could come for the rally and she would avoid it like the plague. It shouldn’t be too hard. It was good to have a plan.

“You got any Jameson back there?” he asked once the crowd practically parted for him to walk to the bar. The whiteness of his teeth was a stark contrast to his dark beard as he put his elbows on the bar top, smiled, and leaned over it.

Frozen in place, Sparrow looked him over as though she wasn’t sure he was real. Enforcer. Blinking at him, she realized he’d gotten an officer position. When her gaze made it to his light blue eyes, she stuffed the lollipop in her mouth.

Jesus Christ those eyes.

Something jabbed her in the side, and the trance was broken. The hum of conversation over Aerosmith rushed to her ears, and she turned to see Kimber holding a bottle of Jameson, and peering at her questionably. Caught staring at him like a high school girl with a crush. Could she be any more pathetic?

Taking it, she offered a smile to Kimber first and then looked to Jacob. Still grinning, he seemed to have added a bit of smugness to it. Clearing her throat, she half-filled a lowball glass and placed it on a napkin for him.

Placing a twenty on the bar, he reached for his glass, allowing his digits to graze hers. Fire danced up her fingers, over her hand, and through her arm. She should have yanked her hand back. She should have looked away from him. She shouldn’t have turned into a puddle where she stood. 

“Thank you,” he mouthed before pulling the glass away from her and bringing it to his lips.

Could someone sip whiskey sexily? Was it possible? It shouldn’t be. As much as she wanted to fan herself, she couldn’t. So, she did the next best thing. “You got this?” She may have asked Kimber the question, but she had no intention of staying for the answer.

“No! Wait, I…” Kimber’s voice trailed off as Sparrow made her way out the door of the bar. Dick move. She knew it, but if the woman knew what the hell it was about, she’d understand. Anyone who had any inkling of what had gone on between Sparrow and Jacob would understand why she’d just fled the bar.

The cool Ohio air chilled her heated skin as she walked along the side of the cinderblock building, heading for the back parking lot. She just needed to walk to her car and to drive away from all of it. It was too real.

Her car. Fuck. She didn’t have her car.

As the realization hit, she turned, and her back pressed against the bricks. Closing her eyes, her head hit the wall. She needed to figure out a way to handle these little pop-ups.

“I’m going to have to buy you a new shirt.” The deep timbre of his voice heated her just as much as the memory of his touch did.

“Why are you here?” she demanded without looking. The accusation in her tone wasn’t on purpose, but it was too late now. It’d been said.

The heat of his body close to hers tickled her skin. She might as well have been set on fire at the feel of his hands on her face. Before she could stop herself, she nuzzled into his palm. He made her lose her fucking head with the slightest of touches.

“Do you mean Ohio or the bar?” he whispered in her ear when he brushed his bearded cheek against hers. It looked coarse, but his facial hair was impossibly soft. The feel of it had her face tingling as much as his breath along her neck.

Twelve countries. Twelve men. Twelve million dollars!

The game of reality TV hasn’t been an easy road for former Hollywood A-Lister, Deacon Brady, but he’s playing to win. 

This time in Salzburg, Austria …

When a global pandemic forces the entire cast and crew into lockdown, things get complicated. For the first time in television history, Tainted Love goes live online, making the game interactive and oh so interesting. 

Former Navel Officer, Fynn, is the next bachelor in a long line trying to capture Deacon’s heart. The catch— he’s never even heard of Deacon Brady, so Fynn doesn’t give a damn about the competition. 

But what is Fynn really hiding?

Just when Deacon thought he’d seen and heard it all, the show’s producer, Dante, does what he does best, and drops yet another plot twist. It wouldn’t be good reality TV without a little drama … or a lot! 

Has Deacon Brady finally met his match?

The hills are alive – Salzburg, Austria.
