BLOG TOUR - SOMEONE ELSE'S STAR BY MADALYN THANE


Title: Someone Else's Star
Author: Madalyn Thane
Genre: Young Adult Romance
Published: October 24, 2017
Page Count: 167 Pages
When the boy who appears hellbent on ruining her life shows every sign of doing a 180-degree turnaround, seventeen-year-old Sadie Davis doesn't know whether to trust her head or her heart.

After years of wishing on stars, she's beginning to give up on her dream of finding true love. Can Jacob, the boy who has tortured her for three long years convince her that she hasn't been wasting her time wishing on someone else's star?


Someone Else's Star Excerpt © Madalyn Thane 2017

“I know that you’re not a doctor, I’m not in a motorcycle club, and we aren’t on a TV show, but this quote just rings so true. ‘We don’t know who we are until we’re connected to someone else. We’re just better human beings when we’re with the person we’re supposed to be with.’ You’re the person I’m supposed to be with, Sadie. I only hope that I’m that person for you. I want to be that person with you.”

With that, he kissed her softly on the lips and left her standing in the atrium, the entire world rotating on a completely different axis. Had he seriously just used her favorite SOA quote against her? That was what Tara said to Jax after his son was kidnapped. After he tried to send her away. It was her favorite damn quote from the whole show. That was beyond dirty. And damn it, it proved exactly how well he knew her. And the star. The. Star. Oh my god. Tears started to leak out of her eyes. That was the sweetest gesture she had ever heard of, and since she was a romantic, watched a lot of romantic movies and read a lot of books, that was really saying something. What was she going to do with him? And what was she going to do about Bree? She knew she needed a little time to stand on her own, to prove to herself that she was capable of doing it.

She needed to be the hero of her own story.
Madalyn Thane lives in Western Montana with her husband, teenage son, four dogs and two cats. She has another son who lives in heaven with the angels.

Someone Else’s Star is her debut novel.

SERIES REVEAL - SINS & SECRETS SERIES BY WILLOW WINTERS




Title: Sins & Secrets Series
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense



Blurb

Love is inexplicable.  It makes you do crazy things.  Love is blind… that’s a saying for a reason, isn’t it?

If anyone ever heard my story, they’d say what I did was wrong.

Even my closest friends.  They wouldn’t understand.  No one would.

But even my friends have sins and secrets of their own.  Their stories would send chills down your spine and make you think twice about just how powerful love can be.  How corrupt… how deadly.

I’ll do what I do best as an author.  I’ll write my tale, but they aren’t safe.  I won’t let them judge me without having their own dark stories unveiled as well.

I’ll write it all down and put a pretty little bow on it.

The Sins and Secrets Series of Duets is here.


with love, 

Jules (Imperfect, Sins and Series book 1)

RELEASE BLITZ - RIVER ROAD BY R.C. MATTHEWS




Title: River Road
Series: Tortured Souls #3
Author: R.C. Matthews
Genre: Standalone Historical Romance 
with gothic elements
Release Date: November 6, 2017



Blurb

When a pirate and voodoo priestess must lift a deadly curse on those they love, do they dare let a relationship blossom amid danger? River Road is the gothically satisfying end to this fan-favorite series!

Charles Moore relishes his dangerous life as the pirate Hatchet, since manning a clipper ship keeps his mind off the role he played in the brutal Civil War. But now an ancient curse has killed two of his loves, and he can’t ignore the whispers that New Orleans’s Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau herself, has hexed his family.

Creole widow Hope Leblonc bristles under the city’s Black Codes that have stripped her of so many freedoms and forced her practice of voodoo underground. When Hatchet treats her like the respectable woman she is, she offers him a deal: she’ll lift the curse if he’ll steal back a family relic she needs to become a mambo in her religion.

But they’re both holding secrets that endanger their lives. When ghosts from the past exact revenge for the skeletons in the Moore family closet, they reveal a connection between Hope and Hatchet that makes the curse more powerful than ever. Will they discover that love is worth the risk in time to survive the coming darkness?

Excerpt

A spark ignited in Hope’s eyes but not one of an amorous nature. Hatchet’s entire body tensed under the weight of her glare. Was his suit truly so offensive? There were moments when he would bet every last dime to his name that she desired him. His offer relieved her of the guilt of bedding the enemy—a white man—and turned it into a business deal. Couldn’t she embrace the brilliance of his plan?
“I should’ve known,” she muttered, untangling herself from his hold. She paced the floor, a tiger caged and feral. “Is there an honorable bone in your body?”
Of course, he had honor; perhaps even more than she. Her attempt at manipulating him with that tarot card reading was not well done of her. Honor was a matter of interpretation. She voiced a problem; he offered a solution. One that might be enjoyable for both of them, if she wished. When cast in the proper light, his proposal was almost noble.
“I’m your knight in shining armor, placing myself in peril to serve you. Plenty of honor in that.”
She halted in midstride, rolling her eyes. “Only a pirate would flip this on its head. You’re despicable for demanding this of me!”
Perhaps she had a point. Stealing her ancient relic from his own father in exchange for one night of pleasure was one of the most reprehensible bargains Hatchet had ever struck. But he was damned to hell, and his loins ached to possess this woman. He’d been aroused since the moment he strolled into her room. Bargaining for the ritual to banish the curse would’ve been smarter, but the widow would accept money for her voodoo services if and when the time came.
Besides, Hope had accused him of thievery, and he was stretching his neck out for her, whether he knew Isaac or not. Unearthing his father’s hiding spot wouldn’t be easy. This was a business transaction, simply put. She didn’t have to agree to his terms, and the longer she glared, the less likely it became that she would concede.
Well, damn, he’d mucked up his chances, yet again.

SALES BLITZ - THE RULES BY CLARE JAMES




Title: The Rules
A Fun & Games Series Prequel
Author: Clare James
Genre: Steamy Rom/Com, Erotic Romance 
Release Date: January 16, 2016



Blurb

Rule #1: Never discuss our arrangement with anyone.

When you make a deal with a stripper, there are bound to be some rules. I get that. But this first one made me chuckle. It was like Fight Club (you know, “the first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club.”) Except in our version, there was sex…and a few other things that I’d never heard of.

Truthfully, I never intended to befriend a stripper named Tash, or agree to her crazy plan. But when you’re batting zero-for-a-million and there’s no relief in sight, the situation becomes pretty damn desperate. See, I was in a terrible dry spell—no, scratch that. I was in a freaking drought.

Tash said she could help…if I gave her seven days and followed her rules.

So what exactly did she have in mind, you ask? Read on, I’m getting to that part…


*The Rules, a stand-alone prequel, can be read as an introduction to the bestselling Fun and Games Series, or to learn more about this alpha hero at any time during the series*

Author's note: This book was previously published under the title, DIRTY.

Each book in the Fun and Games series is a self-contained story and does NOT end on a cliffhanger. The series includes:
#1 The Rules (a prequel), available now
#2 The List (Gabe and Stevie’s story begins), available now

RELEASE BLITZ - TAIL BY RIE WARREN




Title: Tail
Series: Carolina Bad Boys #6
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: MC Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 6, 2017



Blurb

I’m most known for honeys on my arms and notches on my bedpost. But this time, I’m not chasing tail. Every rose has its thorn, and I’ve just been snagged.

TAIL
I have girls lapping out of my hands, forming lines for a chance to dance on my cock. Until she shows up. And it all grinds to a halt. Madison Rose Rush. No joke there. One look at her, and I feel a rush all over my body. I want that thing all the other dudes found. Love. A mate. A classy broad I probably don’t deserve.

I know one thing.

Maddy Rush—Handsome’s sexy sister—is strictly off-limits.

Is that gonna stop me?

Hell. No. Not even with the Bad Seeds MC breathing down my neck for a debt I can’t pay.

MADDY
VP of Retribrewtion Brewery, heiress to the Rush Distillery empire, I’ve played by the family’s rules. I’m community-spirited, high-class, worldly-wise . . . but that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m a good girl.

And Tail makes me want to be bad in ways I never even knew. He’s dangerously gorgeous. He’s affiliated with the same MC as my big brother. He has inked sleeves and sex on the brain and Max warned me away from him.

Is that going to stop me?

Hell no.

Nothing will stop us. Nothing. Until a rival MC—outlaw bikers—retaliates against Tail. Bad Seeds indeed.

Excerpt

Midday, I rolled up to Retribrewtion on my Harley.
Handsome was nowhere to be seen. Possibly a good thing since he’d apparently ratted me out to the veep of the MC.
Dickwad.
No one questioned my presence when I walked inside the brewery. Also a good thing. Weaving through the bottom floor, I glared at anyone who gave me a second look. I took the steps, knocked on Maddy’s door, entered before she answered.
She sat at her desk wearing . . . glasses.
“Glasses?”
“Hello to you too.”
“Glasses?”
“I was running late this morning. Didn’t have time for contacts.” She bent over her paperwork, aaaand her blouse was revealing enough I could see the creamy dip of her cleavage.
“I like the glasses.”
Fuck, do I ever.
“I’m working.” A smile curved the corner of her lips. But she didn’t look up.
The glasses were small and square and fancy.
Immediate hard-on.
“I see that.”
Hot.
Single-minded and sexy as fuck.
Loved it.
“What’s this? No babies today?” She flipped a folder over and typed some shit into her computer.
“No babies.” I closed the door. Locked it. “Just me. I missed you yesterday.”
Color flooded her face, a face she kept bent down. “How much?”
“Tons.” Christ. I loved doing this with Maddy. The cat and mouse when I’d already caught her. “Got a surprise for you. To say thanks for helping with Ma.”
Her eyes darted up from some paperwork she’d just signed and fastened on my groin. “Is it a big package?”
“What?” . . . Oh . . . She wanted to fuck . . .
I could work with that.
I took off my jacket, shrugged off my shirt. Tested the doorknob to make sure no one would disturb us.
Then I stalked.
Maddy, my prey. My love. My lover. In heels, a blouse, a skirt. And those damn sexy glasses.
“I have a strict policy about not fucking in the workplace.” She backed away, her slanted smile and tilted hips nothing but pure invitation.
“Do you now?” I released the zipper on my black leathers. “You want a big package?” I shucked the leathers to midthigh, then pounced at Maddy, not that she was running away.
My lips swooping to hers for a deep wet kiss, I scooped her onto the desk.
Cock freed, I stroked the thick hard length just once. Once was enough.
Maddy nodded, unbuttoning her blouse.
I flicked the front clasp of her bra, her tits—firm, high, and supple—tumbling out. She started taking off the glasses.
Uh uhn. Leave those on.” Pulling a pert nipple into my mouth, I ran my thumb repeatedly across the other peaked bud.
Maddy grasped the back of my head, twisting her fingers in my hair. I drew back only to lick across the mound of her breasts and onto the other nipple. Hitching her skirt up and up, I ruched it to her waist.
I cupped her pussy with my whole palm, feeling heated warmth seeping from inside.
She moaned and arched into me, guiding my mouth to hers. “Hurry. I’m ready.”
“Yeah? Hot to fuck me, sweetness?” I delved deeper into her mouth again, sliding my dick along the slickness of her panties.

RELEASE BLITZ - RIPPLES BY ALEATHA ROMIG

     


You don’t have to read the Consequences series to enjoy this stand-alone novel, but if you know Tony Rawlings, you know that disappointing him isn’t an option. Imagine being his youngest daughter...imagine telling him the unimaginable...  “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.”  Sometimes ideas find you, and dreams begin as nightmares. Sometimes the truth that has been kept hidden is the key to opening a door you never knew existed. “You might not know me. I’m the baby of the Rawlings family, the princess, the daughter who came along later. I’m not like my older siblings, successful at everything they touch. My mother and father have provided me with every luxury as well as their unyielding love and support, but I’m not spoiled. I’m also not content. By example, my parents have shown me how love should be. I don’t know their past, and that doesn’t matter. I know what I’ve seen—two people devoted to one another. I don’t believe that I’ll ever find that kind of love, the kind that forgives and accepts all. And as my life falls to pieces and I travel to visit my family to face their disappointment, I’m not even looking for it. I’m looking for an escape...from my life as a Rawlings...from the pressure to achieve and not let others down. I dream of the time I can live for my own desires without the expectations that come with my name. I don’t find what I’m seeking...it finds me. Or should I say...he finds me. This time is different. I have a family who will search for me and find the answers. Little do we know—any of us—that my father set my journey into motion long before I was born.” "Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects." ~Dalai Lama Ripples (Unabridged Version) is Natalie’s story, the youngest of Tony and Claire’s children—their baby. This story first appeared in shorter form in Glamour: Contemporary Fairytale Retellings. Due to the length restriction of each novella in that anthology, many scenes in Ripples were shortened or omitted for that anthology. This unabridged edition is the entire story—double in length and—a full-length novel. Please enjoy this Consequences novel along with special appearances from your favorite Consequences characters.
