Release Blitz - HUNTER by Anna Brooks

 

 Release Date: June 10


I never expected a runaway cow would have led me to the love of my life, but chasing after that heifer turned out to be the best decision I ever made.

Summer Paige was lost, alone, and a mess… just like her nearly totaled car. After a glass of whiskey and a promise to keep her
safe, I convinced her to stay while she got back on her feet.

It wasn’t long before the innocent beauty turned my life upside down, and I realized she was everything I didn’t know I wanted.
Life was perfect. Until the day I woke up and found her gone.

Her letter was supposed to explain why she left, but it did the opposite and made me want her even more. I had to prove that her past didn’t matter to me because all I wanted was her future. And I intended to do just that… as soon as I found her.




4 Stars

Summer is running from her past as fast as she can. It's not something she likes to talk about, so she avoids it when she can. She isn't super excited about where she is headed either. A wrong turn finds her in the middle of a property she shouldn't be on. When she sees a cow running her way, she panics. Only to find herself a real life cowboy coming to her rescue. The lure of a great small town and people that seem to be genuine for the most part, has her embracing her stay while she waits for her car repairs.

Hunter is a hard working family guy, who lives on his family land and helps with the family ranch. As much as he loves the life he has, he longs for a partner and a family of his own. Don't get me wrong he has his concerns, but who wouldn't when you mother up and walks out of your life? When he find a blonde beauty on his land, he has an instant want for her, to protect her and to keep her.

This book is filled with lots of ups and downs. Emotions are all over the place but for Summer and Hunter there is a fast connection, a feeling of safety and contentment. Could these two broken souls find the love they need to help push their issues away? 

A strong start to a new series with lots of characters to get their turn. A great small town, close nit family feel.

*** Advanced copy provided in exchange for an honest review. ***




The first time Anna tried to read a romance novel, her hair caught on fire when she leaned over a candle to sneak a peek at her mom’s Harlequin. She thinks being hit on the head with a shirtless Fabio until the smoke cleared is what sparked the flame for her love of romance.

Anna was born in Wisconsin, but currently lives in Texas with her husband and two boys.

She writes sexy romance that always has a happy ending and loves bringing characters back for cameos. Less than six degrees of separation connects any of her novels.

When she’s not writing or reading, she’s watching reruns of her favorite romcoms, talking to her dog and cat like they’re human, eating carbs, or practicing hand lettering.

She loves to hear from readers and can be found on social media as @annabrooksauth everywhere.

From USA Today bestselling author comes a high stakes, female assassin, romantic suspense with a twist you'll never see coming!


Once, I wished I was more.

Stronger.Faster.Smarter.Braver. 

And then one night I was forced to become all those things. I pulled the trigger and changed my life forever.

Now I’m an assassin for a Queen Pin, and together, we are taking the cartel world by storm. Sex, drugs, and secrets surrounds us like smoke. The DEA is breathing down our neck and a rival cartel is threatening to destroy us.

But I didn’t come this far to be intimidated or pushed around. Not by the DEA or the Rayas cartel. I didn’t shift my entire universe so some, cocky, sweet talkin’ recruit can get in my pants, either. Those days are over. I’m not that easy anymore.

Tate may be sexy, deadly and dangerous —his tongue his most lethal weapon— but my body and my heart just aren’t on the table. I won’t let another man derail my life, no matter how drawn or attracted I am to him. Or how much I hate seeing him with another woman.

The only thing I have left to offer is death.

They call me La Tiburona—the shark. And I’m not afraid to show you just how deep I can sink my teeth.


** Great White is a romantic suspense with dark elements. Reader discretion is advised.

My world never stops spinning. It pirouettes from one day to another. Every second spurs me to greatness. I'm living the dream I've chased and fought for my entire life.

Until him.

He sends me off kilter with his icy scowl and cruel demeanour. The more he hurts me the more I want him. I crave him like a drug. Ache for him like a sickness.

My Lord may be the smoke but I'm the fire.
And you know what they say...
You can't have one without the other.

Cover Reveal - PASSION by Molly McAdams

 

passion

The first stand-alone novel in the Secrets in L.A. series

Coming July 19th

Cover: RBA Designs


There are moments in our lives that can change the course we’re on. I believe when faced with those moments, we should take the unknown path. The risk. The excitement, the opportunity, the love . . .


The night I stumbled into a burlesque club in downtown Los Angeles, I took one of those paths and changed my life. I found a home I’d never had with my own parents. I found a confidence I’d never known as a prima ballerina. I found my passion.


And it inadvertently led me back to the one moment I’d let slip away—to him. To a love so pure and whole and carnal, I thought it could withstand anything.


But I’m not the only one with secrets. And now, all those chosen paths are crumbling around me.

I picked myself up, dried my eyes, and built my life without him. Now he has come back into my life like a raging storm surrounded by crime and bloodshed. I no longer need him, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want him—or just a little taste…

Everything I did had been to protect her. We live by our code—family, power, loyalty, and protection. Our empire is built on the bones of our enemies. Now that she is back and we have a second chance, they will learn one way or another you do not touch my queen.

Release Blitz - FOOL FOR YOU by Kelly Elliott

 


Fool for You by Kelly Elliott is now live!


It was only supposed to be for a few months, so where was the harm in going along with it? That is, until the fake engagement Landon and I came up with after a misunderstanding threw us both into the spotlight, and threatened to destroy the lives we had both worked so hard for.

Somewhere along the way, though, we realized everything had changed. So, we made a vow to one another when we crossed the line from being best friends to lovers, that neither one of us would get hurt.

But that's the thing about promises made, they are often broken, and the fallout can be catastrophic.

So, when the real world comes crashing down into the fake world we'd created, neither of us knew who would break our vow first, and more importantly, which one of us would survive the betrayal.

Fool for You is a complete stand alone novel.
