#ReleaseBlitz: Royally Yours by Emma Chase

     




Blurb
 
Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco. It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. What she isn’t…is married. It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want. Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty. Even Queens. Especially them. ** Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home. And a sacred promise keeps him there. To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure. ** Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. This is theirs.

#BlogTour #Review: Crushing on the Cop by Piper Rayne

   



 Blurb

Cristian Bianco has two things against him—he’s a police officer and he’s a police officer in the 18th District…meaning my dad is his boss. Growing up as the Commander’s daughter and having his magnifying glass focused on everything I did was more than I could handle. Now, I’m out on my own, living by my own rules. Well, mostly. The ‘job’ I created for myself has me in some hot water and my exit strategy isn’t exactly working out how I’d hoped. Which is why when my best friend bids on Cristian for me at a charity bachelor auction, I’m not having it. A man in blue is only going to be one thing for me—a problem. Except after his brother starts dating my best friend he becomes harder to ignore. The eight-pack abs. The sense of style only a girl like me can appreciate. The way he puts his family first. It all adds up to make him one irresistible prospect and has me wondering if he knows how to use those handcuffs the right way—by locking my wrists to his headboard.

 Excerpt

“Not on duty tonight, officer?” I insert sarcasm into my tone because being a bitch will make it easier for him to keep his distance. “Well, Miss Flanagan, I’m off for two days if you’re wondering.” I step away from the keg allowing the lingering guys who are talking about hockey a chance to fill their cups. “That leaves me open for that date.” He cocks an eyebrow. My head falls back in defeat. “There is no date. You have a pass. Most guys would love the chance to get out of a date with the person who wins them at an auction.” He sips his beer. “I’m not most guys.” I sip my beer and don’t respond. He’s right. He’s not most guys. Most guys don’t look like he does. That or I’ve been hanging around the wrong places. “Some might say that most women would love to go on a date with a police officer.” “I’m not most women.” He laughs. One that heats my insides and makes him even more attractive. I know I’m going to be visualizing him the next time I pull out my Unicorn Cock vibrator, but I’ll deal like I always do. “I agree,” he says when he finishes laughing. “Perfect. Then it’s a deal. No date.” I smile and turn on my heel heading toward the bonfire. “Whoa.” His hand gently grabs my arm. I spin back around. “You know that’s not what I was saying. Come on, Vanessa. I need your dad off my back. One date. It’s not going to kill anyone.” I purse my lips, trying to figure out how I’m going to get him to let this topic go. I’ve had one police officer dictating my entire life already, I don’t need another. “Just lie,” I say with a shrug. His strong shoulders sag a bit and he shoots me a look like ‘give me a break.’ His eyes are those of an innocent man who probably always does the right thing. I’m doing him a favor keeping him at arm’s length. “Fine,” I say when the silence stretches out. He smiles. I hold a finger up into the air. “You do one thing tonight that you’d never normally do and I’ll go out with you.” I smirk. Let’s see Mr. Squeaky Clean take me up on that offer. I’m picturing my victory already. “What?” He screws his face up then sips his beer. I cross my arms around my middle, waiting for him to say no way so that I can move on. “You heard me. One spontaneous thing. Here. Tonight.” “Like what?” he asks, his eyes scanning the area around us that I now realize is quickly emptying out. Half these people probably have babysitters to get home to. I shrug. “That’s for you to decide.” His forehead bunches. “What do you want me to do? Jump over the fire or some shit like that?” “I’d prefer if you didn’t end up in the emergency room, so no, I don’t expect you to jump over a roaring fire. That would ruin Maddie and Mauro’s night.” A pissed off look crosses his face and he downs most of his beer. “That’s it, let’s go, Cris. It’s two against two and I need a guy.” Luca, Cristian’s little brother, twirls a soccer ball on his finger as he steps up to us. Lauren follows behind with a girl I don’t recognize. “What?” Cristian glares over at his brother. “I’m not playing soccer tonight in the pitch dark.” He has a point. “Come on Cris. Lauren says she can score five goals on me.” Luca glances over to Lauren who has a shit-eating grin on her face, and he rolls his eyes. Cristian blows out a breath. Lauren saddles up to my side, kicking the soccer ball from Luca’s hands. She does some fancy footwork then kicks the ball in the air before catching it. That girl has coordination I do not. “The answer is no. Find Bentley, he’s over there.” He points toward the bonfire. Luca must know his brother never does something he doesn’t want to do because he barrels away from us without a word. “What’s going on over here?” Lauren asks, walking backward, twirling the soccer ball on one finger like Luca was moments ago. “Nothing,” I say. “Lauren, what’s the craziest thing I can do tonight?” Cristian hollers out and Lauren’s feet stop, staring at me over his shoulder. She knows this game. We play it often. Well, not since college when guys tend to think they can say hello and you’ll be falling all over them. There’s nothing wrong with making them work to impress you a little. It builds character. LOL. Lauren being Lauren pretends to think about it. In the past, we’ve had guys shave their heads or their eyebrows, dress in girl’s clothing, striptease with a pair of girl’s panties on. God knows what Lauren’s going to recommend. “You’re a smart boy, Bianco. Turn the tables,” she says. “What’s the worst thing you could do to Vanessa tonight?” I flip her off. Nice friend I got there. Who wants her? A devilish smile creeps onto Cristian’s lips. “Anyone tell you, you’re a fucking genius, Lauren?” She laughs. “All the time. Tell your brother for me though.” Luca comes over, stealing the soccer ball from her hands, while a guy tripping over his own feet follows behind. The girl and guy standing on the sidelines watching Lauren and Luca argue about who goes first. “So, Officer Bianco, what will it be?” I cock a hip and a brow. “Maybe a date with you isn’t worth the embarrassment?” He steps closer and I back up an inch, unease setting in as his demeanor grows more confident and sure. I shrug. “That’s fine. I’m happy to split ways now.” He takes another giant step forward and sips the remaining beer from his cup, tossing it down to the grass, his gaze intense and set on whatever he’s about to do. “What are you doing?” I ask, my voice weaker than I’d prefer. We’re chest to chest now because he’s taken me by surprise and I forgot to flee with his approach. Okay and maybe his eyes mesmerized me. A little. Not much. “I’m going to do the one thing I didn’t think I’d do tonight.” His voice has dropped an octave and we’re alone in the darkness of the forest now where the warmth of the bonfire has disappeared. A cold chill runs across my cheeks until Cristian’s hands land on either side of my face. “I’m going to kiss you.” His lips fall to mine. Did I say it was cold? It’s not. It’s warm. Cristian’s mouth on mine steals the chill from my body. I should knee him in the balls or at least push him away, but I don’t. Instead, my lips betray me and move in time with his. I wrap my arms around his neck and I rise to my tiptoes, kissing him back. His arms cradle me flush against his body, his tongue exploring mine and under the canopy of the forest, away from any prying eyes, Cristian Bianco sets my body on fire. I love breaking other people’s rules, but I’m not sure about breaking my own.

#CoverReveal: The Illicit Revealed by Brittani Mari

 

 

Today we have the gorgeous cover reveal for Brittani Mari’s THE ILLICIT REVEALED! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy on Nov 26th! 

 


Title: The Illicit Revealed
Author: Brittani Mari
Genre: Contemporary Romance 




About The Illicit Revealed 


Wesley Black was a man who was off limits to me for obvious reasons, but I moved closer to him anyways­­­–Indulged myself in his dangerous touch. Skillful hands. Sensual mouth. Then reality slapped me in the face. My past suddenly snuck its way back into my life. The lies. The truths. The regret. The memories. Sometimes you don’t really see the truth until it’s too late. I can attest to that. My name is Mia Johnson and this is not a love story. 





 

Exclusive Excerpt 


It felt like ages before the vehicle stopped. After our short conversation, the ride had continued in silence. The man never once commented on my distress. In fact, no one saidanything. I had started to believe we would stay in the vehicle forever when I finally heard him speak again, but it wasn’t directed toward me. He was on the phone. “We’re here. Just making sure it’s okay to bring her in.” By the time the door opened, I considered refusing to get out of the car, but he had told me nothing would happen to me if I cooperated. However, him asking someone else if itwas okay to bring me in made me think I was some sort of bargaining chip. They wanted to be sure I wasn’t seen. Wanted to keep me hidden. So many negative thoughts began to swim in my head, I decided to just give in, surrendering to whatever I was walking into. I had put myself into my current situation by disobeying and skipping out on my security, but if Alek were doing this to teach me a lesson, I would never be able to forgive him. I sighed silently. In the back of my mind, I knew it wasn’t my father or him. I just prayed for those possibilities because, in the end, I knew I wouldn’t be safe wherever I was going. If it weren’t them, I had walked right into the arms of the enemy. I knew the only reason the enemy would send for me was to use me. Use me to threaten my husband…or my father, if he had really come back. What if this person were the same one who had threatened my father and killed my mother? What if it was Alek’s enemy? The one who tried to shoot him? There were so many possibilities, I gave up thinking about them. “Watch your step,” the man said, grasping my arm. I was ushered out of the vehicle. We walked a few minutes, then stopped. I heard a ding and doors slide open. An elevator? I was led inside. As the doors closed, I held my breath, claustrophobia closing in on me. The man didn’t say anything else, yet I knew we weren’t alone. I heard breathing. My heartbeat quickened as the elevator climbed. When the doors finally opened, I felt a light shove and stepped forward. The elevator doors closed and I was met with silence. Was I the only one who stepped off? I waited to be attacked or something, but that didn’t happen. What did happen left me confused, breathless…and aroused. I smelled that familiar scent–his scent. I shivered as arms wrapped around me, pulling me against a hard chest. I felt wetness develop between my legs as his hand slid up my dress, feeling for the evidence of my need, my desire. I was no longer scared or worried. I knew where I was because there were so many signs of him that would be forever etched in my brain. His smell. His touch. His dominant aura. I would never be able to forget him. As the fabric was gently removed from my face, the person turned me to face him.

Synopsis

A love story will be rewritten in this heartfelt romance from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst. Ophelia Bishop was a lovestruck teenage girl when she and Kyle Kimpton chased their dreams to Hollywood. Kyle’s dreams came true. Ophelia’s did not. When Kyle chose his career over their relationship, Ophelia returned home to rural New York to run the family’s B & B—wiser, and more guarded against foolish fantasies. Now Kyle has come crashing back into her life, and all her defenses are down. Kyle can’t think of a better place to write his latest screenplay than his hometown. After all, that was where he met the heart of his inspiration—his first love. He knows the damage he’s caused Ophelia, and he wants a chance to mend their relationship. If anyone can prove to Ophelia that happy ever afters aren’t only for the movies, it should be him. As much as Ophelia’s changed, she still has feelings for Kyle. But her heart has been broken before, and she knows that Kyle could run back to Hollywood at any time. She gave up her dreams once, but maybe she can dare to change her own love story…one last time.

Excerpt

You dont have to clean up, she said. I got it.
No, youve done enough this morning. Let me.
With his tight ass cupped in jeans and a soapy sponge in his hand doing dishes, the scene was total porn. Her knees grew a bit weak. Thanks. Who are you having dinner with tonight? she asked.
No one. Just not her.
Pleasure shot through her. Not interested, huh?
He gave her a stunned look. Are you kidding me? Definitely not my type.
Oh yeah? What is your type?
He gave a low laugh, moving the sponge in perfect circles. Not someone with perfectly manicured fingernails. I like a woman who knows how to get dirty and messy.
Laughter bubbled inside. She glanced at her own hands, which hadnt seen polish in years. Hmm, interesting. What else?
Lets see . . . a woman who doesnt agree with everything I say. That gets old. I prefer a challenge.
Does a woman who calls you a controlling asshole count as a challenge?
Definitely. That just turns me on.
She cocked her hip and pursed her lips. You are definitely an odd man. Anything else?
I do have a fetish not many can satisfy.
Hmm. Fetish, huh? I hope its not feet. Thats just wrong.
Nope. Freckles. I love freckles scattered across pale skin. Theyre like a Picasso painting I cant stop staring at.
Pleasure flushed her cheeks. More like paint-by-number, but I wont judge.
Then theres sex.
She stilled. Her heart beat madly in her chest. Sex?
I have certain needs that many would find difficult to satisfy.
An image floated past her vision. His body pressed over hers, his tongue diving deep into her mouth with a tender fierceness that shook her to the core. Hed always had an insatiable appetite in the bedroom. Their sex life had never been an issueit had, in fact, kept the fragments of their relationship together longer than she imagined possible.
Kinky stuff? she asked.
More like particular. I need a woman whos able to handle me.
Her gaze dropped. Cocky much?
I need the scent of lavender and honey in my nostrils, and the sweet taste of her essence sticky on my lips. I need to look into blistering blue eyes and know I belong to her.
Her vision misted over. She swayed on her feet. He turned off the sink, dried his hands with slow, deliberate motions, and faced her. I need to slide into her sweet body and be welcomed home. Touch her body and make her moan. I need a woman strong enough to let me fall apart in her arms, then put me back together. Do you understand, Ophelia?
She tried to speak, but nothing came out. Her entire body was on fire, nerves on edge, ready to explode. His raw words stroked her earsand between her legs.
Ophelia? Do you understand?
Y-y-yes.
Good. Then you know why Im not interested in Devon. He gave her a naughty wink and spun on his heel. Gotta get to work on that saggy middle of the book. Catch you later.
He left her flushed, off-kilter, and practically throbbing with need.
Bastard.
Damn, she was crazy about him.
