THE GRECIAN

Release Date: TBA

Series: Men of the World #6

🌟BLURB🌟

Twelve countries. Twelve men. Twelve million dollars!

Six months.

That’s how long Deacon Brady has been playing the game of the world’s most eligible bachelor on the new hit reality show, Tainted Love.

This time, his journey takes him to Mykonos. The land of Greek Gods, sparkling azure water and mouthwatering Greek men. It’s there where he meets his next bachelor, Adonis.

Remembering his time in Greece after filming a hit Hollywood musical, Deacon finds himself surrounded by the hits of ABBA, for an all new bachelor edition of the hit musical.

The director Dante has a way of putting a twist on things when it comes to remakes and ratings. Of course for Deacon, that means not everything goes according to plan.

Adonis is the competitive one, with his Olympic sized… games. He may very well be the one that pushes Deacon to the limit, which could cost him his reputation, the game and the twelve million dollars he’s been working so hard to win.

He’s tried to keep his distance, and broken promises, but Dante keeps throwing new obstacles his way. Deacon is finding it more and more difficult to stay focused, especially when it comes to Adonis.

With his sister Kate’s health deteriorating, Deacon begins to lose all hope that he can keep his promise to her and carry on with the show until the very end.

When tragedy strikes, not once, but twice, lives hang in the balance and Tainted Love is forced to temporarily shut down production.

Only halfway through the journey, will this be where the final credits roll for Deacon?

Mykonos, Greece – where the music never stops!

Author: Chris Cannon
Genre: YA RomCom, Sweet Romance
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Blurb:
Nina Barnes thinks Valentine’s Day should be optional. That way single people like herwouldn’t be subjected to kissy Cupids all over the place. That is, until her mom moves them next door to the brooding hottie of Greenbrier High, West Smith. He’s funny, looks amazing in a black leather jacket, and he’s fluent in Harry Potter, but she’s not sure he’s boyfriend material.
West isn’t sure what to make of Nina. She’s cute and loves to read as much as he does, but she seems to need to debate everything and she has a pathological insistence on telling the truth. And West doesn’t exactly know how to handle that, since his entire life is a carefully constructed secret. Dating the girl next door could be a ton of fun, but only if Nina never finds out the truth about his home life. It’s one secret that could bring them together or rip them apart.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book is not for anyone who has to get in the last word, but it is for all book nerds, especially those who live next door to so called unapproachable gorgeous guys. There’s no debating the chemistry.
Blurb:
Lisa is a card-carrying, book-loving Gryffindor. Solid. And that’s why everyone knows she’s awesome. Well, except for her crush, Matt. He only ever sees her as a friend. Plus, he’s got his eye on another girl. Oh well, plenty of fish and all that.
Good thing Lisa just read a book on the “wedding ring phenomenon”—you get more attention when you’re already taken. What if Lisa pretends to be Matt’s plus one? Maybe it’ll help Matt get his girl and Lisa can hook her own fish.
After the plan works, Matt suddenly claims he doesn’t like the view from the friend-zone and wants her instead… But she isn’t interested in being anyone’s second choice. If this guy wants to earn her attention, he’ll need more than some silly “phenomenon.”
He’ll need to go all out…

Rule #1: Never fall in love.
Rule #2: Never sleep with a local.
Rule #3: Never sleep with the same person twice
Rule #4: No glove, no love.
Rule #5: Never break Rules 1-4.

These are the rules that I’ve lived by since I opened The Grove Bar three years ago, but in the last thirty-six hours, I have broken most of them…repeatedly. And boy-oh-boy, did I break them.

Damn you, Burton-f’ing-Hayes.

I didn’t just break my rules with this sexy as sin man; I smashed every one of them to smithereens, and then set each one on fire and pissed on the simmering ashes.

Life was easy with my rules, but now that I’ve obliterated them, I don’t know what to do. Do I follow my heart and set new rules? Or do I stick to my original rules and risk it all?

They say rules are meant to be broken, but at what cost?

Wanted

 

Title:  Wanted
Author: R. E. Hargrave
Genre: Contemporary Romance
#Wanted

 

 

 

Hyde Johnson is an erotic audiobook performer. A ‘Read By’ byline is too plain, and ‘Narrated By’ still doesn’t capture what he does. His livelihood is his passion. Performance art, the air he breathes.
 
Which translates to a recluse who is a hot mess.
 
He’s not eating right, he’s drinking more, and his family’s meddling is making it harder to stay on task.
Being designated the guardian of her young niece Tina is the last thing Gypsy Hartford expected.
 
But when the State of South Carolina unceremoniously puts Tina in her care, Gypsy accepts it’s time to grow up and stop floating from town to town. Where does she start when she has no degree, no real friends, and no family besides Tina?
A want ad could be the answer to both their conundrums. Or it might open a whole new can of worms. Especially when you throw in a crazed author with an unhealthy obsession for her narrator.
 
 

 

 

 
 
 
 
Hargrave, while best known for her erotic, BDSM tales proves with this book that her genre limits are endless. She is a great story-teller and quite frankly, I will continue to read what she writes.
 
Well done, Ms. Hargrave!” ~ Jennifer Theriot
 
“This story was a pleasant surprise for me. What happens when you force a recluse audio narrator and a free spirit together? You have to read to find out what happens next between Hyde and Gypsy. An emotional story with characters dealing with some heavy baggage that you can’t turn away from. Looking forward to more from this author.” 
 
~ Within the Pages Book Blog
 

 

 
 
 
 
Domestic engineer. Dreamer. And quite possibly certifiable.
Believing every story can shine bright with a bit of tenacious tough love, R.E. Hargrave is thorough and to the point. An international bestselling author, she takes storytelling and manuscript polishing seriously, working with her authors and on her own creations to ensure they come to life, crawling from the pages and into the reader’s souls.
 
Hargrave lives on the outskirts of Dallas, TX and is married to her high school sweetheart; together they are raising three children. A native ‘mutt,’ she has lived in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Alabama, Texas, and California. She is fond of setting her stories–which range from the sweet to the paranormal, to the erotic and horrific–on location in South Carolina and Texas.
 
Hargrave is best known for her erotic BDSM series, The Divine Trilogy. The final book in the trilogy, Surreal, was a 2015 Golden Flogger Award Finalist with BDSM Writer’s Con. In 2017, her short novella Brooklyn Blues was also a GFAFinalist.

I’m no stranger to hard work.
Hell, I’m no stranger to dealing with jerks. The only good thing my relentless bullying in high school did was make me strong.
As one of the best band managers in the industry I thought I was ready to take on anything.

Money, cars, screaming fans… And the women? All I need to do is flash a smile and they’re falling at my feet. As a rockstar, it comes with the territory.

At least that’s what I think, until a woman walks into my life and makes me start to feel things I’ve never felt before.

Family betrayal haunts new love …
 
Delilah Johnston and Griffin Kelso ring in the New Year with revels and romance. But once the champagne runs dry, the differences between them crash the party.
 
With a divorce, raising her daughter, and a corporate job in the rearview mirror, forty-something Delilah is ready to indulge herself with passion and a new life. Yes, she agreed to help her ex-boss Griffin launch his new business, but that’s temporary. The tantalizing heat between them, however, isn’t – or so she hopes.
 
Nearly ten years her junior, Griffin jettisons his playboy ways and sets his sights on Delilah. He aims to build a personal legacy with her by his side. But when his father’s health problems – and the older man’s scheming wife – call him home, he can no longer ignore the betrayal and pain of the past.
 
He finds refuge in the always willing and wise Delilah. But the more he leans on her, the more she wonders: when is it her turn?
 
Family drama knocks the couple off course into a tangle of secrets. Can Delilah and Griffin find a path forward together? Or will a disconcerting revelation divide them forever?
