jompsynopsis

My life went to hell the moment I punched Deckard Price. On camera, no less.


I swear, I just did what everyone was thinking. The better part of the country had been wanting to do it. His violent mainstreaming of white-nationalism struck fear into the hearts of everyone with a lick of sense. My little outburst brought smiles to millions of households, made millions of scared people laugh and feel powerful, just for a minute.
If only the story ended there.
But every action has consequences.

Now, I’m on the run, with only a mysterious anarchist trying to protect me.
It’s only a matter of time before Price finds out who I am, finds me. And when he does, I’m worse than dead.
Because hell hath no fury like a neonazi who got clobbered by a girl.

Anarchist’s Lullaby contains explicit and mature content that may be upsetting to some readers. It is a standalone novel following in the wake of Anarchy and Roses.

I smiled, still a little mortified that I’d all but begged for him to spill in my hand, the most impersonal way there was.

Impersonal, and yet somehow entirely too intimate. No distractions from my own body protesting a deep thrust, or a stray wad of spit making me want to laugh. Only him. Pulsing just a little as the orgasm tore through him. Breathing hard against me, every minute little sensation hanging in the air between us like fireflies.

Yeah. It might be days before that smile faded.

“You’ve never done that? Asked for it like it was a favor, not a given? Thought of denying someone just to make them wiggle and squirm?” His voice spiked me with lust. Maybe it was just the way he talked, or maybe he’d hit on something under the surface, something that appealed to me. “It’s about subversion of power. Letting yourself go, and somehow taking more control in the process.”

“Mmm,” I mumbled. “I’m not sure that I’d like letting go like that.”

He laughed, but his warmth made it clear he wasn’t laughing at me. “Woman, you’ve been itching to let go since we met. I’d hazard a guess that you haven’t learned to let go your whole life. Grade-grubber, obsessive perfectionist…I’d bet that you punching that asshole was the most spontaneous thing you’ve done in years.”

I shifted in my seat, uncomfortable with how close he’d come to the truth.

“Trust me, pumpkin, the ones who can’t let go are the ones who need it the most. At some point, you’ve gotta give yourself permission to fail. To be humiliated. To feel pain. To let someone else take the reins. Or to fight back against the reins, and be able to know you won’t break if you can’t evade your harnesses.” A wry smile illuminated his face. “There’s so many possibilities that only become available when you chose to give it all up. And when that day comes, I’m going to love seeing what you think.”

I shrugged, pressing my legs together. My body seemed to agree with him, both that it would happen, and that he’d be the one to do it, crack me open like a geode.

My mind wasn’t so sure, but…I couldn’t fucking wait.

TRUTH REVEALED by KD Robichaux

 

Title: Truth Revealed
Series: Confession Duet #2
Author: KD Robichaux
Genre: Erotic Romance/BDSM
Release Date: March 28, 2017

 

Blurb

It’s been a decade since I divorced the love of my life, after her confession while I was deployed.
Ten years since I spoke to Vi, my soul mate, the girl who had brought me to life only to stab me in the heart, sending me into an even darker state than where I was before I met her.
Ten years, I’ve been watching her from afar, keeping tabs.
After a decade in the Army, two Purple Hearts and a Medal of Honor under my belt, I was kicked out with an honorable discharge, knowing no other skill than One Shot One Kill. Two years later, I’m part of a group of mercenaries who carry out justice. Criminals who hide behind their fancy lawyers and power—we take care of them and make it all look like karma. And with intel from our founder, Dr. Walker, a therapist with a long list of predators whose victims were too scared to turn them in, work is plenty and fulfilling. Until Vi begins her sessions and I discover the reality I’ve lived the past ten years was nothing but a lie, when the truth is revealed.

Truth Revealed – My Review

Oh, WOW! I don’t even know where to start with how much I loved this book! This does pick up where Before the Lie ends. Please, please, PLEASE read Before The Lie first if you haven’t already. I loved Corbin and Vi in the first book. But I’m head over heals about them now. It’s 10 years after the lie was told, and through some interesting twists and turn, the truth does come out. Dr. Walker has to be one of my favorite characters of all time.

The strength of the relationship between Corbin and Vi is positively magical. It’s amazing the things you can overcome with love. Definitely one of my favorite couples and books.

Before The Lie – My Review

Overall, I did love the book. I’m not really sure if it was her young age or her extremely mousy personality the first part of the book. But Vi, in the beginning, really got on my nerves. Corbin I loved from the beginning. An alpha soldier through and through, but finds patience he didn’t know he possessed when it comes to Vi. Corbin and Vi are perfect together and I loved watching their relationship grow and blossom until the lie. Now I’m impatiently waiting for the conclusion, Truth Revealed! I’ve become a big fan of KD Robichaux’s writing.

Keep in mind, this is the first part of a duet. So, there is a cliffhanger.
(Written 1/21/17)

Author Bio

KD Robichaux wanted to be a romance author since the first time she picked up her mom’s Sandra Brown books at the ripe old age of twelve. She went to college to become a writer, but then married and had babies. Putting her dream job on hold to raise her family as a stay at home mom, who read entirely too much, she created a blog where she could keep her family and friends up-to-date on all the hottest reads. From there, by word of mouth, her blog took off and she began using her hard-earned degree as a Senior Editor for Hot Tree Editing. When her kids started school, and with the encouragement from her many author friends, she finally sat down and started working on her first series, The Blogger Diaries, her very own real life romance.

PLAYING HER BODY by Julie Morgan

Playing Her Body
(Southern Roots series Book 6)
Julie Morgan

When shy meets wild, keys will be played.

Attending a bachelor party, Jordan wasn’t looking for anything that night, other than keeping his best friend, Blaine, safe from the paparazzi. Everything had been moving along well until she walked in.

Natalie knew of the band, Deep Ember, but never thought she’d find herself sharing her bed with the keyboard player, Jordan.

Blaine’s wedding was coming. Jordan was ready as best man…at least until he saw who was the bride’s maid.

Praise for Playing Her Body:

“This is a scorchingly hot story, filled with-not only the sort of ultra satisfying sexual tension and payoff you’ve come to expect from Julie Morgan – but also wonderful dialogue, fleshed out and addictive characters, and the beating heart of a true romance that’s sure to leave fans of the genre literally drooling for more.

Do not miss this one. It’s more than worth it.”

Conner Kressley, USA Today Best Selling author of “The Breaker’s Code”

“Julie Morgan is a storyteller with a passion that exceeds my expectations everytime! Jordan and Natalie are the characters that you know will be a forever couple. Laughter, passion and fun rolled up into a fabulous read. I can’t wait for more!”

Brandy Dorsch, author of “Everlasting Hunger”

“Once again, Best Selling author Julie Morgan is turning up the heat in Playing Her Body. The romance is hot, Hot, HOT!”

MY REDEMPTION by Michelle Dare

Ethan Matthews always felt he was second best. His brother received all the praise, never him. Ethan took a dark, lonely road, turning to alcohol and women to avoid the jealousy that ate away at him. But the demons of his past continued to resurface. He decided to turn his life around with the help of the person he treated the worst–his brother.

Piper Lazara struggled for most of her life. She’d lost almost everyone she loved and lived in poverty. Despite the obstacles, she worked hard and finished nursing school. She never believed in love at first sight, so she tried dismissing her feelings when Ethan entered her life, leaving her heart and head at war over whether she’d take a chance on love.

Ethan knew he shouldn’t get involved with anyone at this turning point of his life, but from the moment he laid eyes on her, he couldn’t stop thinking about the raven-haired beauty. He didn’t know if she felt the same, but it was time he found out.

Their lives were in danger, causing family to step in and offer support. Ethan would do whatever it took to protect the woman who had become his everything. He never thought he deserved happiness, but Piper gave him the redemption he so desperately desired.

As a child, Jennifer Michael dreamed of being an author. Life and adulting eventually pushed that dream down to a mere fantasy, which was where it stayed for years. Then, through a stroke of luck and a Kindle, she found the indie romance world, and the dream that was long ago deemed unattainable became a reality. Writing fulfills pieces of her she lost long ago.

Jennifer writes stories that range from sweet and sultry to dark and daring. Behind her computer, she’s constantly dreaming up where she’ll go, what new characters she’ll meet along the way, and what genre she will concur next.

From her house in southwest Florida, she spends far too much time wishing she were at the beach with a good book. She’s an avid reader of fiction, but is a huge fan of gritty stories with deep emotion or dark twisty plot twists. She’s also known to indulge in guilty pleasure television shows. She gets sucked into the world of characters from all mediums. She loves to hear from her readers so make sure to check her out on social media.

Lei’d with Cupcakes by Bethany Lopez
(The Cupcakes Series, book 3
)

Genre: Romantic Comedy/Suspense
NOW LIVE!

Special Release Week Price is $2.99

Amazon | B&N | iBooks | Kobo | Smashwords

Synopsis:

Everybody dreams of a Hawaiian Vacation…

They sell you on the drinks with little umbrella’s, dolphin watching, and long walks on the beach. Which probably happens, if you’re that lucky schmuck living out your dream with your destination wedding, but if you’re a fish out of water PI like me, there’s no time for relaxing because trouble is never far behind.

Instead of cocktails, I ended up dealing with the seedy underbelly of The Big Island.
And, I didn’t see one damn dolphin while undercover on a boat which was spilling over with drug dealers, Kingpins, and Pedophiles.

Elin and Elena think Cade’s family are the coolest people outside of Snapchat, but it’s hard to meet the parents when your boyfriend is in his late thirties and has never had a serious relationship.

I’d never missed my girls so much in my life, but Amy May, Bea, and Carmen are all dealing with issues of their own, and can’t come to my rescue.

The only thing that may help me with this “vacation” is if I could get Lei’d with Cupcakes.

WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS FOUL LANGUAGE, SEX, SOME VIOLENCE, AND SHENANIGANS. IF NONE OF THAT BOTHERS YOU, GRAB A CUPCAKE AND READ ON!

THREE WISHES by Kristen Ashley

Three-Wishes-RDL banner

 

 

THREE WISHES is now available in paperback for the first time! This heartwarming and epic love story from New York Times bestselling author, Kristen Ashley, returns with an amazing new cover!

And that’s not all!

THREE WISHES is being re-released in eBook form with beautiful, new formatting! So make a wish, grab your copy, and prepare to fall in love all over again!

 

 

Three-Wishes-cover

When Lily Jacobs was born, she inherited Fazire – a genie. Her family had three wishes and they’d only ever used one so Fazire was stuck in the human world. This worked since he’d become a member of the family anyway.

Even with a genie, Lily’s young life wasn’t perfect. To escape the kids making her miserable at school, Lily buried herself in romance novels. One day, when the teasing was just too much, she used one of her wishes. She told Fazire she wanted to find a man like in her books and she made the most complicated wish Fazire had ever heard. Her wished-for man had to be impossibly handsome, virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless (amongst a dozen other things).

He also had to think she was beautiful and he had to love her more than anything in the world.

Nathaniel McAllister wasn’t born to a life where there were such things as genies granting wishes. His life was filled with drugs, crime and neglect. He was running errands for a gangster before he was in his teens and, even though life and hard work led him to wealth and respectability, he always knew, deep down, he was dirty. When Nate met Lily he knew he was no good for her but as virile, fierce, rugged and ruthless as he was, Nate was no match for the pull of sweet, innocent Lily.

Unfortunately, Lily’s wish included that she and her hero go through trials and tribulations to test their love. And Fazire wasn’t only a good genie, he loved Lily – so he gave her exactly what she wanted.

EXCERPT:

Nate didn’t know what he wanted but whatever it was, it certainly was not Georgia.

He was saved from answering Victor when he spied a youth wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, the hood worn up even though it was a warm day. The boy was slouching down the pavement, head bowed, hands in the front pocket of the sweatshirt, his head swinging this way and that, looking for his mark.

Nate’s guard, already on alert—always on alert—went into overdrive.

Nate’s eyes narrowed as he watched the youth, and Victor started to get into the Rolls. Then, as expected, the boy darted toward his target and Nate heard a woman’s outraged cry.

“Hey!” she yelled.

He watched the boy snatch the woman’s purse, his body tensing for action.

And then his eyes moved to the woman and uncharacteristically, he froze.

“Hey! He stole my purse! Stop him! He stole my purse!” she shouted.

Nate vaguely registered she was an American tourist. Nate also absently noticed that no one moved to assist.

In that brief moment in time, Nate was too busy drinking in the vision that was her, he himself didn’t move a muscle.

She was tall, incredibly tall.

And curvy, delectably curvy.

She had the most unusual colored hair. Hair that he knew from vast experience living in a house with Laura and Danielle for years came through a supremely talented and expensive stylist’s hands.

And she had an exquisite face, flawless skin and a bearing that was extraordinary. She had been given a wide berth around her even on the crowded pavement. Not because she was screaming her head off but instead because she was majestic, radiant, elegant…

Untouchable.

In a stupor from simply looking at her, the boy with her purse charged right by Nate.

Not in a stupor, she realized no one was going to help her, gave up screaming and charged right after the boy.

At the noise, Victor turned away from the car and Nate shifted to watch in astonishment as she deftly and agilely dodged the crowd, her long legs a match for the short boy. Then Nate watched in stunned surprise as she jumped onto the thief’s back with a graceful leap.

Everyone stared in shock but no one lifted a finger except a few started to take photographs.

“Give me back my purse, you thug!” she shouted.

Wrapping her long legs around her prey, one arm around his neck, she slapped him around the head with the other hand.

The thief staggered back then he staggered with intent and slammed her against the side of the building. Her head snapped back and cracked against the stone so loudly Nate could hear it from where he stood twenty paces away.

At the sound Nate jerked out of his stupor and forged forward.

 

 

Kristin Ashley - headshotAbout Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

THANK YOU FOR HOLDING by Julia Kent & Elisa Reed

Thank You for Holding Ebook Cover

About THANK YOU FOR HOLDING

Having it all is a fantasy, right?

Carrie Shelton thought her boyfriend was too good to be true. Her best friend’s brother? A guy who loved antiquing? Who cuddled on the couch while watching foodie YouTube clips and talking about artisanal spices? Who helped her accessorize her outfits?

Right.

Fantasy.

So when he ran off with Kevin, the owner of an antique shop, right before his sister’s wedding, Carrie’s life went from fantasy to nightmare.

As maid of honor, she can’t back out of the wedding. And her ex is the best man – but now he has his own best man.

She needs a date. Stat.

Enter Ryan. Sure, he’s a hot male stripper at the O Spa where she works as junior designer, but he’s a few years younger and just, you know — a friend.

Perfect. She needs a friend more than she needs a boyfriend.

A weekend of playing her boyfriend so she can save face is a lot to ask, but for some reason Carrie doesn’t understand, Ryan’s all in. Enthusiastic, even.

Especially when it comes to physical displays of affection.

Public kisses turn to private confessions, and pretty soon, Carrie can’t tell the difference between fantasy and reality.

Because if Ryan’s just pretending he’s in love with her, then why does the chemistry between them — and between the sheets — feel so real?

Carrie can’t settle for almost, though. She’s already done that. She’s not putting her life on hold anymore.

Turns out Ryan won’t, either.

He’s holding out for more.

Thank You For Holding is a STANDALONE in the On Hold series. You do not need to have read book 1 in the series, Our Options Have Changed, but after reading about Carrie and Ryan’s friends-to-lovers adventure, you’ll want to. 😉

Excerpt

When I wake up, the room is quiet. The kind of quiet that lets you know you are completely alone. I squint at my phone and see it’s 8:15 in the morning.

Ryan’s gone.

Where is he? His side of the bed has been slept in, but I don’t remember him next to me. Last I recall, he was standing at the window, back turned, mind elsewhere as I undressed just a few feet away.

“He slept next to me all night and never even touched me,” I whisper slowly, trying to make sense of what’s happening.

And what’s happening is: nothing.

Of course. That’s the deal. It’s pretend. Right?

It’s hard to focus my eyes, but I type out a text: hey good morning all good?

Please let him appear with a life-support-size coffee. Please. I close my eyes and visualize him standing by the bed in sweaty running clothes, holding out a giant steaming cup and smiling down at me. Like at O, only better.

Nothing happens. I visualize harder.

Still nothing.

Jamey used to bring me coffee in bed in the morning. I would smell it before I even opened my eyes. You know those articles that always come up online? “Ten Ways to Know Your Partner Truly Loves You”? I always read every single one, and we always got a perfect score.

He brings you coffee in bed? Check (although I was in bed and he wasn’t)

He always kisses you goodnight? Check (although it was just a kiss)

He gives you affectionate little touches? Check (although only in public)

Perfect score, 10 = Total Denial. Congratulations.

Next time I fall in love, if there is a next time, I am going to be completely aware of what’s going on, right from the start. I swear I will never be fooled again. I will learn from experience. I will know the real thing when I see it, when I feel it.

What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common? They’re both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.
I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.
I’d make my coworker fall for me.
I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was one drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least.
Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now.
The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
