ABOUT THE BOOK
A rock band. A reality show. The opportunity of a lifetime.
.
As the front man for The Void, lead singer Dane Archer has yet to achieve the success he craves. He hopes that will change when he’s approached about filming a reality show called House of Archer. All he and the band have to do is get some juicy footage while on their upcoming tour.
.
The problem? Archer’s life is a snoozefest. His parents are happily married, he’s never done drugs or gotten arrested, and he doesn’t get into fights with his band mates. He knows the show will fizzle and die before it ever hits the air, taking his dreams of worldwide fame along with it.
.
Unless…
.
If Archer can convince his best friend Lily to be on the show, he’s sure they’ll get all the compelling footage they need. Her life is filled with drama. Hell, she’s practically a reality show in her own right.
.
Archer’s willing to do whatever it takes to get Lily on board, even if it means charming her into being more than just friends. But when he finds himself falling for her, his seemingly simple plan gets complicated. Soon the line between reality and Reality TV begins to blur, leaving him wondering if achieving his dreams is worth all it might cost him.

TOO TEMPTING Synopsis:

Gabriel “Gabe” Lewis retired from the NFL and returned home to Cherry Springs. He combined his passion for football with camping and is now the owner of a football camp for teens. His summers are dedicated to spending time with family and teaching his campers about the sport he loves.

Zoey Zahn is a quirky, introverted writer and self-proclaimed geek. When she’s asked if she’ll accompany her nephew, Christopher, to camp, Zoey agrees, envisioning quiet evenings of writing in the great outdoors. After she stumbles upon Gabe, however, quiet evenings alone are the last thing on her mind.

The chemistry between Gabe and Zoey is undeniable, but as camp ends, a brewing storm causes their blooming relationship to fumble. All Gabe knows is that Zoey is Too Tempting to deny, and he’s determined to overcome the obstacles between them to be the man she deserves.

EXCERPT:
I was writing a book about teens, magic, and destiny, but all that kept flowing out of me were hot, sweaty sex scenes, with a hero that looked a helluva lot like Superman.

I needed therapy … Or a really good bout of sex.

The knock at my door had me whipping my head away from my computer, and my heart literally flipped in my chest when I saw Gabe standing on the other side of the screen door.

He was still shirtless!

All I could think was, the man had better be single, as I pushed my chair back and walked over to open the door.

“Hey,” I managed softly.

“You ready?” he asked with a handsome grin, his eyes roaming over my excuse for a bathing suit cover-up.

It was a lacy number that really didn’t cover the bikini underneath at all. I’d noticed him checking me out, in between the moments that I was checking him out. I didn’t jog, do yoga, and torture myself with workout DVDs for nothing. It was time for me to step up my game and take matters into my own hands.

Cover Reveal: FIREBIRD by Deborah Leigh

***COVER REVEAL***

Title: Firebird (A Survivor Series novel)

Author: Deborah Leigh

Genre: Dark contemporary romance with a HEA

Release Date: January 4, 2017

firebird-high-resolution-ebook

 Blurb:

When the worst thing imaginable happens to Mary Dougal, her physical body might have survived but her soul feels like it has died. Now the only thing getting her up every morning is the thought of revenge. Making her attackers pay will be the final act in her life.

Feeling like half a man after a tragic accident, former soldier Cain “Ace” Turner has given up on even the idea of love. He’s focused on building his construction business and trying to leave his painful past behind him. With his family’s support and sometimes unwelcome meddling, he tries to just live one day at a time.

Of course love doesn’t give up that easily, and it just might be the only thing to save them both. When these two meet and get surprised by possibilities, can they prove together that love truly conquers all?

Short Excerpt:

Eventually, just because I’m tired of arguing and my asshole friends got my mother to organize it, I agree to a blind date with a woman named Emma. I arrive exactly on time. I take a couple of deep breaths before knocking on her door. I hate this, but I will make the best of a bad situation.

“Hi, there,” Emma greets me. “Sorry I’m not ready yet. Are you early?”

She invites me in to wait for her, not giving me a chance to answer her before she leaves me alone in the living room. She’s still in her robe, not a promising start. I hope we make our reservation.

The short glimpse I get of her isn’t that great. She’s a platinum blonde with much too fake everything. I prefer more natural-looking women. But I’ll give her a chance. Maybe she’s a real sweet person.

I stand around for a while hoping it will only be a couple of minutes. I eventually give up and sit down. A full half hour later, she walks into the room ready to leave.

Using baseball terminology, that would be strike one.

“I’m surprised that you’re so good looking. Why did your mother have to set you up on a blind date? Are you a weirdo? Where are we going?” she asks, not giving me a chance to reply at all.

This one-sided conversation carries on all the way to the restaurant. I decided to take her to my favorite little Mexican cantina for dinner. The food is incredible and the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. When we get there, I open the car door for her and put my hand on her lower back to lead her into the building.

“Oh my, but you are a gentleman. A little quiet for my liking, but I suppose I can get used to it,” she says.

I can’t help the grin on my face. She hasn’t given me a chance to open my mouth. I can actually feel the headache coming on. I’m mentally cursing my mother for this.

We’re ushered into the restaurant and seated without a wait … a small blessing. I pull out Emma’s chair for her and she giggles. Oh, heaven help me. This is a nightmare.

“Have you been here before? It looks nice. I hope the food is good. I believe you’re in construction? What is that like?” she utters in one breath.

I decide to try and get a word in. “I love seeing things going from nothing to something special, whether it’s a renovation or a new build. It’s exciting and never dull,” I quickly blurt out.

By the look on her face, she’s surprised I said something. I wonder if she ever lets her dates talk.

The server arrives and I order my meal before Emma interrupts me, and then wait for her to place hers. The waiter gives me a pitying look. I wonder how much he overheard. As he leaves to place the order, Emma starts up again.

“I really hope the food is good because it’s a little noisy in here. I can’t hear myself think. I feel like I can’t even have a conversation.”

It takes my best poker face, to stop myself from bursting out in laughter. She hasn’t shut up for more than three seconds since we’ve been here.

That’s definitely strike number two.

The questions continue nonstop as our meals are prepared and eventually served. I have never wished for an emergency call so much in my life. I actually take out my phone before I start eating to check if I missed any calls.

“Didn’t you go to college? Why end up doing such a low level job? Did you ever think about bettering yourself?” she asks.

I grind my teeth so hard I can almost feel them cracking under the pressure. I suppose she wanted a rich guy as a date. I give her a smile and nod, though I’m sure it’s more of a grimace.

Not content with dissing my career and my family, she digs herself in deeper. “At least you’re not in the Army. Those guys just go into the military because they can’t get anything better. I mean, can’t they get real jobs?” she says.

I see red. I’m not even halfway through my meal, but I can’t take it anymore.

“That’s it. Shut up, will you? Those people who you say can’t do any real jobs are the ones who allow you to sleep safely at night. Those men and women go out into dangerous situations to make sure you live in a free country. Every one of them is a better person than you. I’m a veteran, and your opinion is offensive. I can’t bear your ignorance anymore.”

It’s been a year since my husband was taken from me in a tragic accident. I thought it would kill me. Now, I think I’m ready to start healing.

My mother says my idea of taking a solo cross-country road trip is crazy, but I see it as my road to recovery. Along the way, I’ll have to deal with the poor choices I’ve made since Ricky died. I’ll have to overcome the terror that his death has caused me. I’ll have to find my balance again.

And once I meet Luke and his young son, I’ll have to decide if I can take the risk to do more than exist and learn to love again.

EXCERPT:

“So,” she began, turning the chair so that she was standing directly in front of me. “When you go into the private room, he’ll be in a chair, or on the couch. Your performance should begin as soon as you enter the room. First, walk slowly, purposefully, your eyes locked on him. You can look him up and down, your face conveying that you like what you see, that you think he’s hot … Even if you don’t, but always bring your eyes back to him and maintain eye contact. Once you get a few feet away, touch yourself. Push your hair back off your shoulders, run a hand down your body, casually brushing against your breasts, but not lingering. Tease him.” Ginger began to mimic her instructions as she spoke. She walked up to my chair, stopping once our legs were close enough to touch. “The music will begin, then, do what feels natural. Let the rhythm flow through you, and move.” Ginger started swaying to an imaginary beat. Her hands roaming, pausing to cup her breasts and lift them, before trailing down and along her stomach.
I began to get uncomfortable, and was sure I was blushing, but Ginger kept talking. And moving.
“When you can tell he’s turned on, and you’re ready, straddle him.” She put her hands on my shoulder, leaning in so her hair brushed across me, as she lifted herself up and over me. She kept her hand on my shoulder, but pulled back enough to look down at me, then she began to move. “Be careful to get close enough that he can feel the heat of your body, without actually touching him. The guys aren’t allowed to touch us, Big Mike will make sure of that, but you want to give them the illusion of sex.” Ginger began to writhe back and forth, swaying her hips and causing her breasts to bounce perilously close to my face.
I suddenly realized this was the most action I’d had in twelve months.

Cover Reveal: INFALLIBLE by Bailey Quinn @BaileyQuinnBook

PRESENTS 
Something entirely new from award winning YA sci-fi writer Carlyle Labuschange

BLURB 
.
THE MOMENT DETECTIVE SCARLET ANNE MARTINS stepped into that prison, her resolve began to wane, a struggle she had long forgotten between heart and head. Unable to deny it any longer, the feelings she had for Alaric were strong—and her desperation to save him would ultimately be what would killed them both.
.
For a super cop, her judgment in men truly failed her. But while her life, and anyone’s who tried to stop her was in mortal danger, she had to forget every single detail about Special Agent Blade. Her primary focus was getting through the next twenty-four hours without killing anyone.
.
Thereafter, her purpose would be to find a way to put behind bars those who were framing her for murder, and the bombing in New York City. It would prove to be an almost impossible task, since she had become a fugitive in a foreign country.
.
This time, her drop-dead gorgeous looks and South African accent would work against her in every way—she would be recognized in a heartbeat on the streets. With nowhere to run, she made the decision to face the peril head on and ensnare the evil that was coming for her, and the only way to do that was by giving them what they wanted.

EXCERPT (Brady):

Victoria narrowed her eyes and asked, “Are you keeping something from us?”
“No,” I practically shouted, then decided to get her to back off by giving her what she wanted. “You know what, go ahead… the living room is all yours. Decorate away. Just let me know what the damage is when you’re done.
“Yay!” she replied, her face brightening with excitement.
“Now, me and the little man are going to watch some football in the other room. Don’t go too crazy.”
“I won’t,” she said, moving to set the chandelier back down.
Before we could disappear into the sanctuary of my room, Victoria stopped me in my tracks when she called after me in a singsong voice, “Don’t think I’m distracted by you giving me what I want, Brady. I’m going to find out what secret you’re keeping.”
Rather than give myself away by responding, I shook my head in response and kept on my path to safety.
“Your mom scares me a little,” I told Dec as I shut my bedroom door behind us.
