“Action, adventure, sexiness, and angst! From Blood and Ash has it all and double that. So many feels and so many moments it made me cheer for the character. Read. This. Book! You’ll be obsessed!”

– Tijan, New York Times bestselling author

From Blood and Ash, a captivating, sexy and action-packed high fantasy novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, is available now!

FromBloodAndAsh AMAZON

If you love forbidden romance, this book is for you. If you love snark, this book is for you. If you love action and intrigue, edge of your seat moments and being caught off guard by what you’re reading, this book is for you. And if you’ve been missing . . . vampires in your life, this book is for you.

A Maiden…

Chosen from birth to usher in a new era, Poppy’s life has never been her own. The life of the Maiden is solitary. Never to be touched. Never to be looked upon. Never to be spoken to. Never to experience pleasure. Waiting for the day of her Ascension, she would rather be with the guards, fighting back the evil that took her family, than preparing to be found worthy by the gods. But the choice has never been hers.

A Duty…

The entire kingdom’s future rests on Poppy’s shoulders, something she’s not even quite sure she wants for herself. Because a Maiden has a heart. And a soul. And longing. And when Hawke, a golden-eyed guard honor bound to ensure her Ascension, enters her life, destiny and duty become tangled with desire and need. He incites her anger, makes her question everything she believes in, and tempts her with the forbidden.

A Kingdom…

Forsaken by the gods and feared by mortals, a fallen kingdom is rising once more, determined to take back what they believe is theirs through violence and vengeance. And as the shadow of those cursed draws closer, the line between what is forbidden and what is right becomes blurred. Poppy is not only on the verge of losing her heart and being found unworthy by the gods, but also her life when every blood-soaked thread that holds her world together begins to unravel.

She says she doesn’t remember me and doesn’t know who I am, but it won’t stop me from claiming her again.

Five years ago, Allie and I were young and in love. Giving into our crazy passion.

As the son of an MC Pres, her uptight parents hated my guts, but I didn’t give a damn.

I was ready to wife her up and start knocking her up with my kids.

But a brutal accident almost killed her, and her parents ripped her from my grasp.

Years have passed with no word from her.

Years that have hardened my heart and turned me into the Bastard I am.

Need for Speed AMAZON

Need for Speed is the continuation of Solo and Panther’s story and should only be read after book one, Danger Zone.

MATEO MORGAN

CALL SIGN: SOLO

Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.

MISSION RULES:

  1. Kick everyone’s ass.
  2. Do whatever it takes to win.
  3. Do your best to distract the competition.
  4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.

* * *

GRANT HUGHES

CALL SIGN: PANTHER

Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable.

MISSION RULES:

  1. Keep it safe in the air.
  2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son.
  3. No distractions. Stay focused.
  4. Don’t fall for your competition—especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning.

In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one.

With passion this intense, the question remains:

Who’s gonna come out on top?

Need for Speed (The Elite, #2)Need for Speed by Ella Frank

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sizzling…

Need For Speed picks right up where the first book left off. So yes you definitely have to read them in order or you will be lost. In Danger Zone we were introduced to these two awesome men Solo and Panther and we ended with one life threatening cliffhanger. In this book, we get more of the feels. We get hearts opening and we get some very sizzling hot scenes. But again we end with a cliffhanger. Now this time I wasn’t prepared but holly molly I don’t care. I’m loving these two wonderful sexy men and I am so excited to get more of their story. Lovin’ this!

A Dark Folklore Anthology for Save the Children

Blurb

Some stories paint us sweet, told to children as they fall asleep.

Mother Earth she weaves the world with a whirl of her magic, and her kind embrace shapes us all. Father Time keeps us all, ever constant, ever moving onwards, for time never stands still.

 

Icy hands and a frozen touch, Jack Frost ushers in the cold snap, coating the earth with sparkly delights. If Jack brings cold, May Queen brings warmth, her delicate touch bringing forth the spring.

 

Follow the rainbow and maybe you’ll find, a Leprechaun with his lucky pot of gold.

 

The watchful eyes of Man in the Moon keeps all of the secrets of the night, shining down on us with his silvery light. The Sandman is here to soothe you to sleep, bringing all to slumber with a pinch of magic dust. Shhh, sleep now. Beware the Boogeyman lurking out of sight, waiting under your bed, to catch naughty children in the night. Be good little children, for Santa is watching, and he knows if you’ve been naughty or nice.

 

Tales of lore, fair music to our ears. Can you hear it? Did you know? Not every tale is sweet. The truth is darker, our stories more twisted, unlike the rhymes that children hear.

 

All proceeds will be donated to Save the Children.

This is a mixed M/F and M/M anthology that contains trigger warnings for its dark content.

It is intended for a mature audience of 18+.

🔥Review Blitz 🔥 ALL THE TRUTHS by Rina Kent 🔥

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

The highly anticipated conclusion to the Lies & Truths Duet is here! All The Truths by Rina Kent is LIVE!! #OneClick today!

Blurb

The truth doesn’t set you free.

 

Revenge shouldn’t be rushed. It needs to be savored.

Reina ruined my life and it’s only fair I ruin hers back.

Or that was the plan.

That was before she got under my skin and flowed into my blood.

Life as we know it crashes and burns.

All we have left is revenge.

Or is it?

 

All The Truths is a dark new adult book that contains dubious situations some readers might find offensive and/or triggering. If you’re looking for a hero, you won’t find him in Asher Carson. Please don’t read if any of that bothers you.

 

All The Truths is the second part of a duet and is NOT standalone.

SYNOPSIS

 

Revenge really IS sweet. ~Alace Sweets.

 

A dark thriller, this book is not a light read.

Filled with edge-of-your-seat suspense, this intense story commands the

reader’s attention as it drives towards the explosive ending. Alace Sweets is a

vigilante serial killer, with everything that implies and is sure to trip all

your triggers. Be ready.

 

At seventeen, Alace Sweets turned a corner in

her life, taking the wrong shortcut home from school.

 

Resisting the harsh knowledge her attackers will

never be made to pay for their actions, Alace takes a stand. Justice must be

served, and if fate’s scales are out of balance, she’s determined to set things

right as best she can.

 

When the laws of men fail, the rules of Alace

prevail.

What

Others are Saying

 

“This book sucked me in and kept me reading straight through to the end.” –

Manda Mellett, Goodreads review

 

WOW, I loved this book. So much. So buy it, read it. Seriously, go right

now.” – Jesse Roth, Goodreads review

 

“I loved reading Alace’s story. It’s heartbreaking, brutal but sweet and loving

all rolled into one tiny body.” – Raychel, United Indie Book Blog

 

“A very intense story with lots of twist and turns and shocking details. A must

read for all those dark, gritty romance fans out there.” – Paula, Sweet

& Spicy Reads

 

 

 

EXCERPT

 

 

From Chapter Two

 

Alace Sweets

“Is everything okay?”

She crossed the distance between them and leaned in so Nate could kiss her

forehead, something she’d noted he liked doing. She let him wrap an arm around

her shoulders, drawing her close to his side before he turned so they faced Ike.

 

“Nothing to worry about,

baby girl.” Nate’s voice dropped into the lower registers, and she shivered at

a sudden memory. That was how he’d sounded just before he buried his face

between her legs last night, finding that delicate balance of aggressive

licking and kissing, and a fragile tenderness that had been missing from her

life for a long time. I’ll miss you, big guy.

 

 

 

“Hey, Ike.” She

offered a little wave with the hand not currently tucked into Nate’s back

pocket. From the outside, it probably looked like they were a longtime couple,

only Nate would know that before last night all he’d gotten access to were her

forehead and fingers. She’d gently rebuffed all his overtures while keeping the

door open for use when it mattered most. Like last night, she thought, keeping

the smile on her face small. “What’s up?”

 

 

“Hey, Pauline. Sorry to

bother you and Nate.” Ike gestured towards the front room, and Nate led her

towards the couch there. “I got some bad news, honey.” Tipping her head to one

side, she settled next to Nate, letting him hold her close. She rested one palm

on his thick thigh, allowing her fingers to curve possessively around it. “Alan

Trueward, how well did…do you know him?”

 

 

Well, hell. They found

him already.

 

She carefully didn’t let

any of her thoughts show on her face. Stoicism was something she had long

practiced, really since her first breath, if she were honest. All through her youth

growing up in that tiny town, she’d had to hide everything inside her. All the

pain and anger, the fear and loss. Getting out of bed in the morning meant

sliding that particular mask into place, and she was so good at it now it was

first nature, bypassing that second nature bullshit normal people lived with.

 

“Decent guy, he takes

care of the girls.” She purposely let her smile broaden slightly. “He and

April—” Alace tipped her head so she was grinning up at Nate. “—are quite the

item.” Fraternization between employees at the club was frowned on, but Nate

hadn’t told them to stop, which meant he probably didn’t know the reason behind

it in the first place. Alace did. Alan was the entire reason she was in town,

after all. Regg had sussed him out nearly two years ago, and she’d started

laying plans. It’s what she did these days.

 

“Did you see Alan last

night?”

 

 

Boy did I ever! I saw

him on his knees calling out to a god who didn’t give one shit that the man was

about to die.

Just like Alan didn’t give one shit about those little girls he liked to rub

off on when he was a teacher. Just like that judge didn’t give a shit about

those little girls, giving Alan a commuted sentence because he “had such future

contributions to give to society” and ignored his existing contributions to

eleven little girls’ nightmares. Eleven future husbands who would have their

hands full considering the woman made for them had been so abused. Alace firmly

believed that every person had their one true love, and she just as firmly

believed that Alan Trueward did not exist in that column for any woman, or man.

God couldn’t be that cruel.

 

 

Yeah, I saw him. Saw him

kneel. Saw him fall. Kicked dirt over his blood and shoveled it into the well

after him. Saw the blade rise and fall, a glittering promise in every stroke

seeing that taking Alan’s life was actually giving him peace, too. I promised

him he’d never feel those urges again. His voice begging, pleading loudly, “I’m

sick. I know. It’s a sickness.” He was sick, all right. Sick to death.

Some secrets are better left buried…

Stuck between life and death, Mackenzie is hell-bent on proving her innocence, and getting revenge on the men who murdered her sister. With one series of unfortunate events after another, Mackenzie must outrun her own fate—death.

When secrets unravel and lies become twisted betrayals, Mackenzie finds herself in more danger than she could’ve realized. Her only saving grace is Baz, the elusive playboy she’s given her heart to. But will placing her trust in a man like Baz be her downfall?
