how badly they want to remain aboard ship.

Sandy Toes
by Kim Deister
Two lives turned upside down.
Two big secrets. One steamy vacation in the Hawaiian islands. Will
Ireland and Sully find what they want most in each other?
Ireland needed a break. It had been a rough year and she needed a fresh
start. Her coven was embroiled in a civil war and when she refused to
fall in line with the rest of them, she was kicked to the curb. By
her friends, by her family, even by her boyfriend. She’d moved past
the grief stage, even past the anger stage. For the first time in her
life, she was free to do what she wanted. She had no one’s
expectations to fill but her own. So, she decided to celebrate. She
bought herself a three-week vacation to Hawaii. No responsibilities.
Just fun in the sun and time to figure out what was next for her.
When Sully brought home two tickets to Hawaii, he thought
Kallie would be thrilled. He’d envisioned three idyllic weeks on a
tropical island. Swimming in the ocean, laying on the beach, catching
a few waves, and eating in world class restaurants. But within an
hour, he found himself holding an extra ticket as he watched Kallie
put the last of her bags in another man’s truck. He’d torn up that
ticket and flushed the pieces down the toilet. But he still had every
intention of using that other ticket. Maybe some time alone was
exactly what he needed.
Awakening
by Nicole Banks
Both dead on the inside, until a spark ignited a fire
they couldn’t outrun. Will they be able to withstand the heat or
will they get burned by their flames?
The most sought after hired gun. She’s ruthless, but even killers need a vacation.
He’s being hunted and there’s only one warrior strong enough to
keep him alive. A king whose seeking protection and a killer
searching for peace, but in each other they find so much more. When
survival instincts kick in, so do their primitive instincts. This
summer won’t be the only thing heating up.

I live in Calif with my husband and children. My grandkids are my treasure. When I am not writing, I enjoy going to cruises, concerts, eating white peaches, pistachio ice cream, and sipping margaritas.
I have been reading the romance and suspense genre since I was a young
girl. I always dreamed of writing paranormal tales that are full of
love, incredible sexy wild men, mysterious realms, and a dash of
suspense.
I love writing in the paranormal genre because of the limitless range
of characteristics, powers, and weaknesses available to develop the
characters’ and realms. I love sexy angels, gods, vampires,
werewolves, dragons, and other entities.

Creatively living through music, writing and yoga.
I love the arts and how they move you and make you feel.
Reading has always been a great love of mine right after my love of music.
Each song written is a story waiting to be told. Which, along with my over active imagination fueled my desire to write about the chaos that goes on in my head.
I love stringing words together. I love making people get lost in a story and connecting with fictional characters that remind them of someone they know.
I published my first book Shattered in 2013. It’s the first installment in the Shattered Hearts Series. Shattered started out as an assignment for a college course I took at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. After I graduated college I went through my old papers and reconnected with the story morphing into so much more then what I wrote in my college course.
Now you can find me doing yoga, listening to music and working on getting
out all the stories in my head, including dabbling in poetry. (Which
I’ve always had a secret love affair with).

Out of Reach
Maximum Exposure Book 1
by Kendall Talbot
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Adventure
In a place where a city can be lost hundreds of years . . . they can
still find each other.
Lily saw the temple of Agulinta on television: a vast stone structure
swallowed by the Yucatan jungle, rediscovered only now after hundreds
of years. So why did the papers she found after her father’s death
show the same mysterious carvings that puzzled archaeologists at
Agulinta? Her search for answers pulls her to Mexico’s southern
border, where the journey to the lost temple will take her through
jungle and mountain, over waters home to crocodiles and drug runners,
and into uncomfortably close quarters with a man whose need to wander
has become a way of life . . .
Australian Carter Logan’s work as a nature photographer has given him the
excuse he needs to roam wherever his restless feet take him. But in
all the time he’s traveled, he’s never been drawn to anyone the
way he is to this determined, cagey young American. Lily’s
perseverance through dirt, sweat, and danger to the heart of the
ancient temple fires through him. But when the two of them are left
alone and stranded in a vicious wilderness, their connection might
prove the difference between life and death . . . if the secrets of
the past don’t come between them first.
Kendall Talbot is the author of the Maximum Exposure series, and many
other action/adventure stories. A thrill seeker, hopeless romantic,

Don’t Call Me Cupcake

Don’t Call Me Cupcake
The Holloway Girls #1
by Tara Sheets
Genre: Supernatural Romance
Most families have a favorite recipe or two, handed down through
generations. The Holloway women are a little different. Emma
Holloway, like her grandmother before her, bakes wishes into her
delicious cupcakes, granting the recipient comfort, sweet dreams, or
any number of good things. It’s a strange gift, but it brings only
happiness. Until gorgeous, smooth-talking newcomer Hunter Kane
strolls into her shop, Fairy Cakes—and Emma makes the mistake of
selling him not one, but
three Sweet Success cupcakes.
Hunter, it turns out, is opening a fancy new restaurant and bakery right on
the waterfront—Emma’s competition. To make matters worse, the
town committee has decided to split the upcoming summer festival
contract between the two, forcing Emma to work with her nemesis. But
she can’t afford to split her profits. The solution: create a
recipe that will make Hunter leave town permanently.
The Holloway charms are powerful. But there are other kinds of magic in
the world—like red-hot first kisses, secret glances, and the
feeling that comes with falling truly, madly, inconveniently in love . . .
Tara Sheets is an award-winning author of contemporary romance and women’s
fiction. Her debut novel, Don’t Call Me Cupcake, won the 2016 Golden
Heart® award sponsored by Romance Writers of America. Tara began her

no coat on, and she finds that pretty inspiring too. When not
writing, Tara enjoys life with her book-loving family and a

**Only .99 cents!!**

Excerpt:

Declan

There Cherry is, standing on the patio with Dakota sitting on the rail, hands everywhere fun. They kiss and the hooting starts from some of my drunker compadres. I smack a few heads as I stumble across the patio to them.

“Having fun, I see,” I smirk as Cherry turns to me, leaning into Dakota.

“Always,” she responds with a laugh.

“Hey, where’s your sister?” I holler to be heard over the Reggae music blaring through the speaker they are almost on top of.

“In the house,” she answers with a slur. My head is swimming and I’m well, let’s face it, I’m horny. I lean toward them.

“You should go get her.”

“She already told me she wasn’t coming out. She ain’t gonna come out and deal with your craziness, and she sure ain’t gonna leave the kids alone.”

“Aw, c’mon, do a guy a solid. Tell her I’m askin’ after her.”

“Forgive Dec, after a few drinks, he tends to think he’s Casanova.” Cherry chuckles, grabbing me by the balls. “She ain’t comin’ out just cuz you’re horny.”

I growl as she lets her lips hover over mine. “Go play elsewhere.” She pushes me back.

I spin around and face the house. As my eyes scan, I notice the blinds upstairs shift. She’s watching but is too scared to come out.

“Addilyn!” I scream, holding out my arms as I make my way through the crowd toward the balcony. No sign of her. “Addilyn Tate!” I holler again more sternly, jumping up and propelling myself onto the balcony and over the railing to the cluttered surface of her porch. My guests cheer as I get my balance and call out her name for the third time.

The glass door opens and she’s standing there in this silky little romper. It covers her, but at the same time, has my head spinning and thinking about pulling it down and off her. I’m staring hard as I try and speak, but nothing useful comes out.

“What do you want, Declan?” She wraps her arms around herself, which only serves to prop up her tits. I can’t think, so I act. I grab her by the wrist, pull her out onto the balcony and right to me. Her body presses against mine as I crush my mouth to hers. I feel her tongue pass over my teeth and get the taste of peppermint for an instant before she pushes me away. I try to hold onto her, my chest heaving as my heart races.

“We’re not doing this. Go back to your party.”

“And if I say I don’t want to?” I reach for her again, but she steps backward.

“You’re drunk, try saying that when you’re not drunk. In the morning.”

I drop my head and turn toward the crowd. “The lady doth protest too much!” I call out as I make my way back over to my balcony. Up was one thing, but down would have killed me.

I stumble into my room and hear a giggle. Looking up, I find Simone is in my bed with not a stitch of clothing on and to make matters worse, Franny is nestled firmly between her thighs. My mouth hangs open in confusion.

“Hey, lover boy,” Simone moans while Franny works her over. “Wanna play?”

My vision is blurry and my balance near gone, but from this angle, Franny passes for Addilyn and it makes my cock twitch. Fuck it, if she doesn’t want me, I may as well. I drop my board shorts and climb on the bed. Getting behind Franny, it isn’t long before I’m balls deep in her tight little snatch, the headboard slamming into the wall as she caterwauls and Simone orders me to go faster.

The Coin ~ Tour & Giveaway

The Coin Series Box Set
by Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra
Genre: Romantic Thriller
The thrilling, complete story of Gabriela Martinez and Richard Harrison,
as they try to keep one step ahead from madmen who are trying to kill them.
THE COIN (Book One)
A coin found, a terrible secret, and a psychopath who will stop at
nothing to keep that secret safe.
When Gabriela Martinez finds a French coin on one of her outings, she
never thought the possession of it could get her killed. Only Richard
Harrison, the intelligence operative sent to protect her, can save
her from this madman, who will do everything to silence Gabriela. And
when the psychological games to terrorize Gabriela escalate, Richard
must find a solution, or it may be too late for both their lives and
their love.
Set in the exotic French Riviera, The Coin is a story of hatred,
betrayal, love and duty–terrible and painful choices that,
nonetheless, bring about personal triumph.

 

THE BOOK OF HOURS (Book 2)
– For Gabriela Martinez, psychopaths do hit twice.
Four years ago, when Gabriela Martinez almost lost her life to a
sociopath’s twisted vision, she never thought she’d be hunted again.
After catching a glimpse of Gabriela’s new work, The Book of Hours, Arnold
Wickeham has been like a man possessed. Now, he will do anything to
claim it, and no one, especially not Gabriela, will stand in his way.
Now that her life is being threatened once more, Richard Harrison will
risk everything, not only to protect her, but especially to get her
back in his life. However, the stakes are higher this time around and
there is much more to lose. Together, Gabriela and Richard must find
a way to stay one step ahead of the danger, if not, Gabriela’s life,
but especially their future together, may very well go up in flames.
Set in California and in London, The Book of Hours is a story about
greed, dangerous obsession, family duty, and, especially deserved
second chances.
“The Coin is a suspenseful, sexy, romantic thriller…a page-turner —
Kirkus Reviews”
“Dare I say that The Book of Hours may have been better than The Coin?
Along with the action, suspense, romance, and murder attempts, who
wouldn’t enjoy this book? – Books, Reviews, Links, and a Little Extra”
Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra is a romantic suspense author with a unique point
of view. Her adventure novels take place in locales across Europe and
the United States, reflecting her international upbringing and
extensive time as a global traveler. In her duology, The Coin and The
Book of Hours, her characters, Gabriela and Richard, walk the same
paths as their creator, though her life was never in so much danger.
Her short story collection, The Fish Tank: And Other Short Stories, is an
imaginative ride through various genres. One section in particular,
“Soul Songs”, delves into the gut-wrenching experience of exile
with Ms. Alonso-Sierra’s fictionalized Cuban Diaspora stories,
based on her own experience of exile.
The author’s short story, “Retribution Served”, is featured in the
anthology Book Dreams: Volume 1, and has been well received by
readers.
Ms. Alonso-Sierra’s writing career began circa age thirteen with a very
juvenile science fiction short story, but the writing bug hit, and
she has been writing, in one capacity or another, ever since. She has
worked as a professional dancer, singer, journalist, and literature
teacher in both the university and middle school levels (and not
necessarily in that order) and holds a Masters in English literature.
She loves to hear from readers and, when not writing, roams around to
discover new places to set her novels.
She is currently working on her fourth book, a Detective Nick Larson
novel, and lives in North Carolina with her husband and her dog, Amber.

One Last Heist
by Dahlia Donovan
Genre: M/M Romantic Suspense
One last heist.
 
It should’ve been easy. Crack a safe, steal from a villain, and go on
vacation. The last thing Mack and Toshiro expect is to descend into a
nightmare of betrayal.
 
Mack Ueda-Easton loves three things: his husband, heists, and his odd
family of friends. He lives life on the edge. The only cloud on his
horizon is the degenerative disease stealing his sight.
 
Toshiro Ueda-Easton tries to juggle his husband, his autistic sister, his
interfering mother, and all of their heists. He knows they’re
spiraling out of control and the journey they’re travelling can’t last.
 
What neither of them expect is to get catapulted straight into a dangerous
conspiracy. They’re now in a race to come out on top. If they fail,
the consequences are unimaginable.
Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about
shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and

life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive
collection of books and video games.

The Controversial Princess ~ Now Available!

TCP_BLOG TOUR.jpg

The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Publication Date: May 22nd, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

TCP Final Cover

Her father is The King of England.

She is The Controversial Princess.

Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors – lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.

That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defences overwhelms her – his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.

But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.

And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.

TCP_TEASER_6.jpg

Excerpt:

Leaning over, he kisses the tip of my nose. “Now, food’s on the way. We’ll have a carpet picnic, what do ya say?”

“I’ve never had a carpet picnic before.”

“Say what?” He looks horrified. “Never?”

My shoulders jump up on a little shrug. “It’s all fine dining, posh china, and solid silver cutlery at a table that’s so shiny you can see your face in it.”

“Then tonight we fix that.” He pulls me up and walks us through to the lounge. “Get all the cushions on the floor.” He pulls a throw off the back of a chair and wafts it into the air while I pull all the cushions from the couch. I watch as Josh gets on his hands and knees and starts pulling at the corners of the blanket, straightening it out and placing cushions.

I have a permanent smile on my face, fascinated by his deep concentration. “You are doing a tremendously good job,” I say, clearing my face of my smile when his motions falter and he looks up at me. One of his eyes narrows, and in a lightning move, he snatches my wrist and yanks me down to the floor. I cry in surprise, being rolled to my back until I’m once again pinned against something by his body. Not that I’m complaining. Would never dream of it. I blow a tickling hair from my nose and grin at him.

“You’re making fun of me.” He dips and bites the end of my nose.

“Not at all.” I chuckle, squirming beneath him while he makes a meal of my face.

“Too good for a carpet picnic, are you? You want a throne?”

“Definitely not,” I blurt. “Unless your face will be my throne.”

Josh pulls back speedily on a little choke, his eyes bulging. I press my lips together as he stares at me in shock, like how could such a vulgar thing have fallen from the lips of a princess? “I think I just fell in love with you.”

It’s my turn to choke. “Blimey, you fall easily, don’t you?”

“Actually, I don’t fall at all.”

“No?”

He shakes his head. “Baby, I’ll be your throne any day of the week.”

“Honored.”

“It is me who’s honored. It’s not every day a real-life princess tells you she wants to sit on your face.”

Laughter erupts from deep within me, my eyes clenching shut, my head thrown back. My position and lack of control gives Josh the perfect opportunity to ravish my throat. And he does, growling dramatically, squirming above me…rubbing me.

Jodi Ellen Malpas - Kerry Ann Duffy Photography053.jpg

Meet Jodi:

Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction.

Jodi went on to self-publish the second book in the trilogy, Beneath This Man in Jan 2013, just before Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, picked up the popular trilogy and the unknown Jodi. The third book of the trilogy, This Man Confessed, took Jodi to the top of the bestsellers lists, earning her the proud title of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author. This Man has since been voted one of the top romance novels of all time.

With so much love, enthusiasm and a thirst for her words from her readers, Jodi suddenly wasn’t afraid of her imagination anymore. She went on to write The One Night Trilogy with the delectable and mysterious Miller Hart, and stole the hearts of her readers once again. Her first stand-alone novel, THE PROTECTOR, released in September 2016 and has since been nominated for a Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award. Jodi’s next stand-alone novel. THE FORBIDDEN, is set for release in August 2017.

All seven of her published novels have hit the New York Times best sellers list – as well as the Sunday Times list and various international best seller lists. Her work is now published in over 24 languages across the world.

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a mojito addict, is famous for her obsession with Converse, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers
