Title: Deadly Deception
Author: Mary Martinez
Genre: Mystery/Suspense
Release Date: June 1, 2022
 
A blink of an eye. That’s all it took for her life to change forever. After two years, Marcie Faraday still doesn’t believe the crash that took her family was an accident. She is determined to find the answers, even if the truth puts her in danger.
Detectives Booker Dixson and Lashelle Valentine must deliver the news to Jonas Faraday’s widow which is the worst part of their job. Neither believes it should have been ruled an accident.
Booker and Lashelle uncover a connection between Marcie’s late husband and her father’s medical clinical trial. Coincidence or ploy? Booker Dixson does not believe in coincidence.
Deadly Deception is a thrilling journey to uncover the secrets that threaten to shatter the perfect picture of Marcie and her family.



She paused at the top of the stairs. It had been two years since she’d felt this paralyzed. The day the officers had told her about her family, to be precise. She drew in a deep breath as she realized she’d been paralyzed ever since.

It was time to take control.

With determination, she tackled the closest box. After three boxes, now marked for charity, she understood she was still procrastinating on what she had come to do.

With renewed purpose she surveyed the boxes until she found what she’d really been looking for; her husband’s work belongings. Bold letters indicated the content. WORK FILES. Would she find what she needed in this first box?

She used the scissors to cut the packing tape and gingerly lifted the flap. She quickly realized the files were old and only records of completed cases. They were the first to visit her father’s shredder.

Tears slipped as she fed the paper to the machine. Her husband’s life was reduced to a container of shredded paper. He’d been on his way to the top. Though he hadn’t talked much about the account he’d hoped to land that fateful day, she had felt his anticipation almost as if it had been her own. His excitement had told her it was something special. She sat back on her heels as she realized something. He was keeping it a secret because he was going to surprise her with whatever it was when he landed it.

Three boxes later she found, POLICE FILES. Her stomach churned, she swallowed down her trepidation. Come on Marcie. Where is that woman full of grit? She could almost hear Jonas say the words.

She used the back of her hand to swipe at the dampness on her cheeks. Her hands trembled so hard she was barely able to open the flaps. Once done, she realized she was staring across the room at the wall. Unwilling to look inside, she closed her eyes a moment. Lowering her head, she drew air into her lungs and held it there. Her eyes slowly opened as she released her breath.

Plastic. It took a moment for her to understand what she was looking at. The bag with all of her husband’s personal effects from the accident. She opened the bag and carefully pulled out the items one by one. At the bottom were her daughter’s hair clips and her favorite brush.

Her vision wavered as she turned her attention to the contents of the box. She reached for Tori’s backpack. Frozen characters in the background and Olaf happily dancing in the forefront. Her throat clogged with the tears that wanted to continue to fall.

“Oh, Tori you loved that snowman.” She swiped at her cheeks. “They have another one out, Frozen II. We could have gone…”

Her words ended in a sob, she pulled the pack to her face and inhaled, hoping for a whiff of her daughter.
Mary lives in Magna, a little town west of Salt Lake City, Utah. Together with her husband, she has six grown children, six wonderful grandsons, and five beautiful granddaughters. She loves to spend time with family and friends–she includes good books as friends!

Mary and her husband love to travel, especially to the Caribbean for relaxing, and Italy for the wine. And most recently she discovered she was Irish and Scottish, of course, they had to visit Ireland and Scotland. Mary fell in love with both, but the green hills of Ireland felt like home. With the experience from the exotic places she has visited, she is able to fill her books with colorful descriptions of cities, painting a colorful backdrop for her characters. One of her favorite US destinations is New York/Brooklyn, where her beloved Beckett’s live. When she visits, she can wander their neighborhoods, favorite parks, and visit their favorite pub, Putnam’s.

They are avid concert ‘Ho’s’! Yes, they pretty much want to do them all. They love outdoor amphitheaters the best and attend as many during the warmer months as possible.

Mary writes mostly romantic suspense, romance, women’s fiction, and she has just begun to dabble in young adult mystery. During her writing career she has been a conference coordinator, workshop presenter, and chapter president for the Utah Chapter of RWA. In 2007 she was presented with the Utah RWA service award in acknowledgment and appreciation for outstanding service. Mary has participated in numerous library panels on writing and co-presented a workshop on writing a series at the League of Utah Writers conference. She was awarded the 2021 N. N. Light Book Award winner for best book in two categories: Four Sisters for Women’s fiction and Celtic Myst by M. L. Foxx for Fantasy.

Mary also writes as ML Foxx. This is her first jaunt into Fantasy and Sci-Fi, she loves it. It gives her freedom of choice. In her ML persona she also loves to go to the movies, and you got it… Watch the Avengers, Dead Pool, among others. Something her hubby doesn’t really enjoy but humors her fantasy side. You’ll see more books soon…

Mary and her husband are also enthusiastic college football fans. They have season tickets to the UTES; University of Utah Football and they tailgate every game. They love tailgating so much, that they were married at a tailgating in 1999.

GO UTES!

Title: Lynch’s Rule
Series: Ruthless Sinners MC
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 10, 2022

An action packed and suspenseful roller coaster ride to go on with The Ruthless Sinners. ~Goodreads Reviewer

This story is full of non stop action and suspense plus a beautiful sexy love story. ~Read All About It

I have loved each and every book in this series. The side characters never disappoint, you can feel the brotherhood and friendship among the club. ~ABookLover

Sexy. Suspenseful. Angsty. ~Book Club Gone Wrong

Buckle up and hang on… Raelyn and Lynch’s story is a wild ride. It starts off with a bang and then it fluctuates between fanning myself hot (wink wink) to break my heart emotional. ~Cali Gals

 
There are no guarantees in life- not for any of us.

Wall Street Journal and USA Today Best Seller L. Wilder brings you a new addition to the Ruthless Sinners series.

I had one rule…
One non-negotiable demand.
It seemed simple enough.
But, nothing about Raelyn was simple.

She was complicated beyond reason.
Impulsive.
Reckless.
A rule breaker.
She tested every limit—especially mine.

She was the kind of woman my brothers warned me about…
But that only made me want her more.

Lynch’s Rule is a standalone MC romance with no cliffhanger and NO CHEATING. These sexy bikers are foul-mouthed, possessive alphas who will do whatever it takes to protect the women they love. Enjoy the ride!

My wish was granted as soon as I brushed my tongue against Lynch’s bottom lip, breaking the last of his resistance. His hand dove into my hair, fingers clutching the nape of my neck as he pulled me closer. A low groan shook through his chest as he delved deeper into my mouth, and I could barely keep my balance as a wave of desire crashed over me. I was completely consumed by need and thought Lynch felt the same, but the second I inched closer, he stepped back and pulled himself free from our connection. With his jaw clenched, he looked down at me and growled, “Do you have any idea what I want to do to you right now?” Feeling brazen, I looked him straight in the eye and replied, “Show me.” Before I even had a chance to blink, Lynch had me pinned against the wall. My God. He looked unbelievably sexy, towering over me, and every single nerve in my body came alive as he slowly lowered his mouth to mine once again. The man who’d invaded my dreams for weeks kissed me long and hard, making me lose all self-control as I relished the sensation of having him so close. I watched in awe as he removed his shirt, then tossed it to the floor. He dropped his hands to my waist while my fingers trailed along the curves of his perfectly defined chest. The wild look in his eyes shot straight to my core. “Conor.” His voice was low and gruff as he whispered, “Tell me what you want, Rae.” I’d never had a problem speaking my mind, but at that moment, my thoughts were in a frenzy, and it was hard to form any words. I took a moment to collect myself and eventually replied, “You … I want you.”

Title: Deliverance
Author: Kimberly Knight
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publication Date: March 7th, 2021
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Erin

Deliverance.

“The action of being rescued or set free.”

I never thought I would need to be rescued or set free from anything in my life, but that all changed when I took a taxi home after a night out with my friends.

But the taxi didn’t take me home. It took me to a warehouse filled with women in cages, and I found out that I was the newest captive. I was told I was lucky. I wasn’t lucky. This was my karma for flirting with the bouncer at the nightclub when I had a boyfriend waiting for me at home.

 

Ricardo

Savior.

“A person who saves someone or something (especially a country or cause) from danger, and who is regarded with the veneration of a religious figure.”

I was a Navy SEAL, trained to save people. After I was medically discharged, my uncle tricked me and got me involved with the wrong family in New York City when I needed a job. Right away, the king made sure I watched him kill a soldier for falling in love with one of his girls, which meant I couldn’t act on my feelings when I fell in love with Erin. But I knew she sparked my interest at the club for a reason. I needed to save her.

Except, year after year, we were living in a nightmare of sex, lies, and murders because the only way out was to make the king fall, and I knew I had to wait for the perfect moment in time.

Or we would both be dead.
