Content creator. Trendsetting influencer. Society columnist.
Hannah Raven has worked nonstop since she was sixteen to make it big. Abandoned by her mother to a grandmother who didn’t want her, Hannah fought to create a space for herself where she belonged. So what if it was on the internet? That didn’t mean it wasn’t real.
Decorated military hero. Doctor. One of Chicago’s prized eligible bachelors.
Dalton Derico thought he’d seen it all, and what he’d seen wasn’t worth a damn. Then a stunning woman collapses in his arms after being slipped a roofie, and everything changes. There is beauty in the world, and he will have it for himself… as long as he can convince Hannah that all her roads lead to him.
Flitting from party to party has always been Hannah’s way, but now that she knows the darker side of party life, she’s reconsidering where she belongs. Is she destined to cover the celebrations of other people forever, or should she risk putting her faith in Dalton by creating a new world that could belong to them both?
***This contemporary romance includes a fiercely protective Alpha who’s hot enough to raise temperatures and drop panties. As always, no cheating, no love triangles, no cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed, with an epilogue built to make you happy-sigh. Due to adult language and sexual content, this book is not intended for people under the age of eighteen.***

“Being treated like royalty at restaurants is a definite perk to dating Chicago’s favorite professional party girl,” Dalton remarked as he walked Hannah to her car. She’d insisted on driving herself to the restaurant for a couple reasons. First, she’d needed to go back to the office after picking out a costume for the fete to gather up her coat. But the main reason had been that she hadn’t been lying when she’d told Dalton her guard was up. Taking risks, such as getting into cars with men she barely knew, was something carefree-Hannah had done, before she’d been slipped a roofie. No way would she do it now.

Even if the man she was with had the ability to make her feel safe simply by the sound of his voice alone.

“Just wait until I take you out for coffee at Joe’s Joe.” She smiled up at him as she hit the lock on her car’s key fob, then promptly forgot what she was doing when he returned that smile in spades. Dear God, this man was breathtaking. “They’ll fill you up with so much caffeine you won’t sleep for days, but it’s totally worth it.”

“It’s a date.” He came to an abrupt stop as well to stare down at her as if he couldn’t get enough of the sight of her face. “In fact, everything we do should be a date from here on in, from eating, to grabbing a cup of coffee, to breathing. You game?”

Her eyes widened, and suddenly that breathing he mentioned was hard to do. “You mean we should spend more time together?”

“I mean we should spend every waking moment together. Time without you in it is a complete waste.” While she was still reeling from that statement, he reached out and cupped the side of her jaw, his fingers sliding into her hair. “You’re good with that, yeah?”

“Yeah.” Her response was swallowed by his mouth, but she didn’t mind. When a man kissed a woman like it was what he was put on earth to do, she could pretty much forgive him anything.

 
 
 
 
A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail began writing stories in between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a figure skating coach who was also a published romance author, or a romance author who was also a figure skating pro. Now, with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from steampunk to cyberpunk, contemporary to paranormal at night, both dreams have come true.

Title: VILE LEGEND

Author: JONATHON MCELHANEY

Blurb

Humanity has changed.

No longer are we separated by race, gender, or the petty squabbles that are so common for our kind.

Instead, there are the humans and the Gifted, separated now by class, rank, and moral fiber.

Viles stalk the ruins of old America, turning the eastern cities into rubble and plaguing the road from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

It is only the Legends that can stand up to them, using their Gifts to bring peace to the people.

However, not all Legends are cut from the same cloth, and not all gifted are out to protect.

The young man known as Impact and his friends have no concern for the reforming country or the Alliance of Legends, but choose the path of Vile Hunters.

With their gifts, they will find the Vile who slew their mentor put an end to his evil, or die trying.

Narrator: Jennifer Sterling
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:
Banished, exiled, and accused of murder – I’ll drink to that.
 

Forced from the sacred sisterhood of Valhalla warriors, spending my days in a haze of sex, drugs, and alcohol seemed an ideal way to dull the sting of all I lost. Until I was wrongfully accused of murder. That left me with two options: run or fight to clear my name. Seeing as my head hadn’t quite cleared from that last bottle of whiskey, running was definitely out. 

Despite having what I consider to be a stellar disposition, I’ve acquired a laundry list of enemies. Narrowing it down won’t be easy. But one thing is for sure: Whoever it is knows what I am and won’t stop until I’m dead or behind bars. 

Out of options, I must delve into the supernatural underground I’ve tried so hard to avoid in search of help. Feeling more lost than ever before, I must own my truth to save myself. I’m not human. My kind no longer exist. I am…the last Valkyrie.

Sacha

I’ve always believed in being the change you want to see. But I never imagined that would cause me to be dipped in gold paint, bedazzled in beads, and flaunted on a float in an outfit that would make RuPaul proud. When the party is over, there are more than stray beads left on the streets. A body has been found, and as the days pass, the killer shows no sign of stopping. I’m feeling eyes on me wherever I go, and the oversized footprints outside of my dwelling tell a story all their own. The beast tearing people apart has its sights set on me as the next victim. It’s time to swallow my pride and pull out the big guns, a member of the Cortez vampire court.

 

Marcellus

Having a witch queen makes their problems ours. Which is how I landed on this glorified babysitting duty. At least this assignment promises adventure. Somehow, the sassy-mouthed witch who co-runs the supernatural investigation company Witch For Hire has gained herself an unwanted admirer of the furry kind. Stalked and attacked, Sacha needs the type of protection that can combat the cursed man trapped in the beast’s body. If I fail to keep her safe, she may face a feat worse than death. She’ll become one of the damned.
