Read the first book in Emmie & Theo’s Trilogy, Deviant Knight:

http://mybook.to/DeviantKnight

Excerpt:

He pushes from the wall, giving me little choice but to back up as his heated eyes bore down into me.

 

His intensity is almost overwhelming. But knowing that one stoke of my hand or lick of my tongue will be his undoing means I hold steady, daring him—begging him—to do his worst.

 

“You’re mine. Tell me you’re mine,” he demands, his voice low and terrifying.

 

My mouth goes dry as my lips part to respond.

 

I might have already said it tonight, but that was while he was touching me, playing me like a musician would his instrument. Right now, he’s asking when I’ve got almost a level head. If you ignore the alcohol and desire flowing through my veins.

 

Holding his eyes steady, I wet my lips and give him the truth. One I feel right down to my soul. “I’m yours, Theo. Every inch of me.

Blurb:

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

Watching her walk away for a second time… nearly destroyed me.

But it was nothing less than I deserved from the things I put her through.

I should have let her go. I’d already caused Emmie enough pain to last a lifetime. But I’m a masochist.

Her pain is my pain.

And she’s mine.

Whether she likes it or not.

She’s my wife.

And the sooner she understands that she belongs by my side, the better.

Till death do us part…

I’m not letting her go.

Nothing she can do will convince me that we’re not made for one another.

We might be toxic. Combustible. A match made in hell.

But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

And together.

We will reign.

 

Dear reader,

Deviant Reign is the third and final book in Emmie and Theo’s deviant trilogy, and the sixth book in my dark mafia, high school romance series Knight’s Ridge Empire.

✞Excerpt Reveal ✞SAINT by Sierra Simone✞

  SAINT by Sierra Simone Release Date: September 7th Genre/Tropes: M/M/Second-chance romance/Brothers Best Friend/Forbidden Romance   Add to Goodreads http://bit.ly/Saint_GR   PREORDER AVAILABLE! Amazon: https://amzn.to/3f1Xbf0 Amazon INTL: mybook.to/SaintINTL Apple Books: sierrasim.one/AppleSaint Nook: sierrasim.one/NookSaint Kobo: sierrasim.one/KoboSaint Google Play: sierrasim.one/PlaySaint Excerpt: Why leave a life as a millionaire? Why leave a perfect boyfriend? Why leave family and a cute, derelict farmhouse and sex—God, why give up sex? Because if I hadn’t, that darkness spilling in through my farmhouse window would have taken me. I’d wanted it to take me. I was ready for it to take me. And somehow I managed to crawl my way here instead, gasping like a drowning man who’d just clawed his way to shore. I managed to save my own life—or I managed to let God save my life. Either way, that was the cost of surviving. My old life. Him. Elijah scrubs his hands over his head, sinking into the tight curls for a moment. It’s longer now; he used to wear his hair short, with crisp, immaculate edges. Another change I wasn’t there to see. I wasn’t sitting on the couch with him when he rubbed his face and mused about growing a beard; I wasn’t poking him out of the way with my toothbrush while he faced the mirror, posing this way and that to imagine longer hair. I wasn’t there in bed with him at night, my legs tangled with his, while he complained about his job or feeling bored with his work, I wasn’t there when he sold his first article or when he submitted a portfolio to Mode. I wasn’t there, because I was here. Praying and chopping wood. I wasn’t there, and this Jamie person was. Elijah stands up, facing away from me for a moment, before he turns back. The sun abruptly shifts through a break in the clouds and drives back the pre-rain murk in the cloister, illuminating Elijah in a haze of gold. If I were to make a stained-glass window displaying an image of God’s creativity and capacity for beauty, it would be this. It would be Elijah with an unshaven face and in those shorts, it would be his eyes in that dark gold-brown hue, it would be his mouth, that jaw, that throat. It would be a saint in low-top sneakers with a halo of Kansas sunshine around his head. He pulls his lower lip between his teeth for just an instant before releasing it, and then he straightens up, looking at me with an expression that defies interpretation. Only his eyes seem beyond his usual control, blazing with a heat that might be fury or grief, I can’t tell. “I loved you for a long time after you left,” he says. “I thought you should know that.” He doesn’t have to say the next part, because I already know; I already know he doesn’t love me anymore. And with a small nod, he turns and walks out of the cloister, the first spots of rain blooming on his shirt and his head bowed, as if in prayer. Blurb: I can’t have Elijah Iverson.   I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.   I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.   The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.   And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.   And we all know that I’m no saint.   (This is the third full-length standalone in the Priest Collection, featuring Father Bell’s brother, Aiden Bell. You do not have to read Priest or Sinner to read Saint.)   About the Author: Sierra Simone is a USA Today Bestselling former librarian (who spent too much time reading romance novels at the information desk.)

Excerpt: “I’m part of this, Savage. Whether you like it or not.” “And if I wanted to lock you in my room and only let you out once Creed is no longer a problem?” “I’d find a way out.” He snorts. “Of course you would.” “It’s okay to be scared, Rhett. We can’t control everything all of the time.” He slides a hand around my waist and pulls me flush against his chest, not caring who can see us. “Stray’s right, you know. I need you, princess. I don’t know when it happened… but it’s the truth.” He drops his head to mine and inhales deeply. “And it fucking scares the shit out of me.” “Why?” I ask, breathless. “Because love makes you weak.” My breath hitches at his words. It’s as close to a love confession as I’m probably ever going to get from him. “You’re wrong, Savage,” I smirk up at him. “Love doesn’t make you weak. It gives you something to fight for.” And Rhett, Dane, and Wes? I’ll fight to the bitter end, if it means I get to keep them.

Excerpt: The snap of leather fills the room as he pulls his belt free.   “Oh God,” I moan around the fabric   “No, baby. He’s not going to help you now. You’ve handed yourself over to the devil. And guess what?” He pauses for a beat as if I could actually respond. “It’s playtime.”   He binds my hands tightly behind my back.   I tug to see if I’m able to free myself as he chuckles to himself.   “It’s cute that you think I’d let you escape.”

Blurb: When something seems too good to be true. It’s usually because it is. A lesson I learned the hard way. Every single fear I had about falling for Leon, has just come true in the most brutal way. The sweet guy act he’s been putting on the past few weeks is over. The cold, hard truth is… he never wanted me. He only wanted retaliation. And like a fool, I played right into his wicked scheme. But I’m not the monster he thinks I am. Ten years ago, I might have discovered the horrifying truth, but I did the only thing I could. I pushed it down and tried to forget. Tried to survive. Afraid of what might happen at the hands of the monster who ruined both our lives. But now the truth is out, and the secret Leon has been keeping for a decade is about to poison those he loves, sending him into a darker place than he’s ever been. Healing isn’t always easy, it’s messy and painful. The question is, beneath all the hate, will I rediscover the man I fell for, or was he always a fantasy?   Dear Reader,   The Retaliation You Deliver is the conclusion to Macie and Leon’s duet and the final book in the Maddison Kings University.

I take a step toward her and she takes a hesitant one back. “W-what do you want, Luc?” I consider her question for a few seconds. “Honestly. I have no fucking clue.” She gasps when she runs out of space behind her and bumps up against the wall. “I-I’m sorry you found out like that. That wasn’t—” Her words are cut off when my hand flies out and pins her against the wall by her throat. She swallows nervously, her body trembling as tears pool in her eyes. “Stop,” I boom. “Just stop.” My chest heaves as I stare at her almost cowering away from me. I hold her wide eyes for a beat before I drop mine to her pink lips. They’re so full and I already know just how sweet they taste. Then I drop lower to her dress. It’s the first time I really get to look at her and fuck. “You look…” Beautiful. I swallow down the word as the confusion I’ve battled with all day only gets stronger. Hurt her. Take her. Punish her. Make her yours. “Tell me he didn’t touch you. Tell me he didn’t take what’s mine.” Blurb: After six years of living in denial, Luca is finally faced with the truth. A brutal discovery he refused to accept when I needed him most. Now the vengeance he so desperately craves isn’t directed at me, but the monster responsible for destroying all our lives. That might put us on the same side this time, but that doesn’t mean I can forgive him for not believing me. Or for hating me when I loved him. Just when I think the darkness couldn’t drag us down any further, it threatens to swallow me whole. Only this time Luca is right there beside me, reminding me how things used to be… fighting for me. Begging for my forgiveness. Something I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to give him. Until he proves that the boy I fell for still exists, underneath the one who broke my heart. And I begin to wonder if there ever was a question about our future.   Dear Reader, The Destruction You Desire is the fifth book in my Maddison Kings University series and the second book in a duet for Peyton and Luca.

She wants to tell me her reasons for being here because she wants to get away, I don’t need to be able to feel the tremor wracking her body to know that she’s scared of me right now, I can practically taste her fear and it feeds some part of me that I wasn’t aware needed sating quite so badly.  I knew standing before her, looking into her eyes was going to calm the war raging inside me. But I had no idea her fear was going to be this… addictive.  “Tell me,” I demand again as footsteps in the gravel of the parking lot sound out. I’ve no idea if it’s some of tonight’s late-night customers or staff, I don’t rip my eyes from Peyton’s to find out.  I don’t need to say anything to warn her against calling out or asking for help.

✞ Excerpt Reveal ✞ Jegudiel by Tillie Cole ✞













Amazon





























They are the Fallen.

A brotherhood of murderers whose nature compels them to kill. But guided by their leader, Gabriel, the Fallen have learned to use their urges to rid the world of those it is better off without.


Control. Diel has spent his entire life under it. His childhood years were spent in the sadistic captivity of the Brethren. Now the Fallen are free, but the monster that lives inside Diel is not—can not be. The darkness within is curbed by an electric collar, the only thing that stops Diel from killing everyone in his path.

Diel’s monster yearns for freedom—the freedom to tear apart Brethren priests, as many as possible, one after the other in a frenzied, liberating spree. When Diel is granted a taste of that freedom, he expects bloodlust, violence, death.

He didn’t expect to find her.

The Fallen are not the only ones chasing the destruction of the Brethren. They were not the only ones to suffer at the priests’ hands. This Diel discovers when he stumbles upon Noa, second in command of the Coven, a group of women who are intent on bringing the Brethren down.

From the second they collide, Noa seems to understand Diel in a way that no one ever has before. She is unafraid of his rage, the bloodthirsty monster that dwells within him.

Because there is a darkness inside Noa too, and it recognises the one in Diel as if it is the missing half of her soul. For years she has tried to suppress it, but as she is inescapably drawn to the fury-filled man in the collar, she starts to wonder if she can keep up the fight.

She starts to wonder if she even should…


Dark contemporary romance. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.












Diel opened his eyes, his hazy gaze traveling down the damp gray stone wall around him. His cheek was cold as it pressed against the freezing floor. His neck ached, the throbbing ghost of numbness snaking over his bare shoulders and the top of his spine. His head twitched, and he flitted his eyes to the iron bars that trapped him inside the cage.

The cage he knew all too well.

The monster within him rippled under his skin, waking from the forced sleep it had been plunged into. A spear of anger soared through Diel’s veins, overriding the aches and numbness and the lethargy of his muscles. Again. They had grounded him again. Lamed his monster again.

Jaw clenched and hands fisted, Diel used his waning strength to lift his torso off the slick ground and sat up. His pulse thudded faster and faster at the fact that he was in the fucking cage. But his pulse had no sooner started to race than the metal collar around his neck crackled against his already scarred and scalded skin. The electricity sizzled its warning, a sharp-fanged serpent, ready to strike the minute he lost control of his senses.

Diel breathed deeply and forced his body to still, the darkness within him to rest. Every inch of him became a statue, and the hiss of the collar lessened to a low-grade hum.

He fucking hated the collar. It was the bane of his existence. But it was a necessity.

Diel closed his eyes and thought back to how he’d got to the cage in the first place—a dream. Another fucking dream that had ripped him from sleep and had seen him racing through the manor looking for someone to tear apart, to sate the bloodlust of the monster living inside him.

No. Not just someone. His monster yearned for some very specific someones.

The Brethren. The motherfucking Brethren that he and his brothers had recently destroyed after they’d captured Maria, Raphael’s woman. The Fallen had headed to Holy Innocents, the school that had robbed them of their childhoods and fucked with their bodies and minds. They had descended, for the final time, to Purgatory, the place where they had been held as kids.

And they had burned it to hell.

The flames may have destroyed Diel’s childhood tormentors, but the rage following the inferno remained. The monster that lived inside him, seeking blood and pain and death, only grew stronger, thirstier, more intolerant of the collar that wrapped around his neck like a leash, denying both of them what they craved—death. Such beautiful, sadistic deaths by their hands.

Diel heard the sound of a pencil scratching on paper and turned his head to see Sela sitting on a chair at the side of the Tomb. He was sketching on a pad of paper, eyes fixed on whatever he was creating.

“Upper hallway, left wing,” Sela said, without taking his eyes off the pad. His long dark hair curtained his face as he concentrated on whatever picture he was purging from his creative brain onto the page. “Gabriel had us bring you down here until you awoke.”

The tendons in Diel’s neck corded. The darkness inside was more than pissed at being handled in such a pathetic way. He ground his jaw so hard that the sound of teeth on teeth made Sela lift his eyes and meet his stare.

Sela’s pencil stilled. “Third time this week.”

Diel inhaled deeply through his nose and exhaled slowly. He mentally wrestled the monster back until its presence was a dull ache at the back of his head, throbbing like the very worst of migraines. Diel sat back on his ass and laid his arms over his bent knees. His head twitched as he fought the everlasting battle to keep his anger in check.

“The Brethren,” Diel said, voice raspy with exhaustion. Sela twirled the pencil in his fingers as he listened to his best friend, the stick of wood and charcoal practically an extension of his artistic hand.

Diel’s eyes lost focus as he bathed in the memory of his collar being turned off in Purgatory. Anger had filled his veins, and Diel and the monster he kept at arm’s length had become one, united in violence and death, twin dark souls synced and, for once in their lives, calm and at peace as they plunged their twenty-inch blades into the men that had destroyed their childhoods.

Destroyed every single part of them.

“D?” Sela said, pulling Diel from his stupor.

His temples throbbed, his ever-present migraine pounding like iron bars being slammed into his brain over and over again. His migraines had always been bad, the monster never sleeping long enough to grant a reprieve. It was constantly pacing at the back of his mind, desperate to finally be freed of the collar’s stringent control.

Diel rubbed the back of his neck. “I keep replaying that night in Purgatory.” Memories of killing the Brethren flashed like a highlight reel in his mind. “When the collar was off and we finally got to end them …” His cock stirred as he recalled the feel of his blades slicing into flesh, of hitting bone when they plunged too deep. But his excitement misted away to vapor when he remembered the familiar buzz of the collar being reignited and his monster being lashed and gagged once again. “And then Gabe switched it back on.” It had been like a junkie getting his fix, the most hedonistic drug cocktail of his life, only to be abruptly forced to go cold turkey afterward.

Diel’s head twitched again as his pulse began to race at just the memory of smelling the Brethren’s blood on his skin—the sweetest perfume. His hands flexed as he felt the phantom necks that had snapped under his fingers.

The collar buzzed and sent warning volts soaring through his body. His muscles tensed as he absorbed the pain, as it hissed at the monster inside to retreat. To get the fuck back. Sweat beaded on his forehead; a single drop ran down his spine.

Gasping for air, Diel submitted to the monster’s sudden surge of power to snarl, “I want this fucking collar off. I want to be who I was fucking born to be without the restraints.” Diel tensed and threw the monster back from taking control. The monster retreated, but its anger-tipped words echoed around Diel’s head like they were being blasted through speakers. Diel’s stomach turned and a fissure of panic slithered across his fractured soul at that thought. The thought off actually being free from the collar … of what that would look like, feel like …

Diel knew his monster could never be freed. He knew the collar could never come off. It would consume Diel. It would eradicate every part of who he was.

💙Excerpt Reveal 💙TRAGIC LIES by LA Cotton💙

  TRAGIC LIES (Rixon High #2) by L.A. Cotton Release Date: June 8th Genre/Tropes: Age gap, forbidden romance   Add to Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51003698-tragic-lies Excerpt: He framed my face with his hands, eyes searching mine, deep and intense. “What?” I whispered, my heart stuttering in my chest so much it felt hard to breathe. “You slay me, Peyton.” And then he kissed me. His hand curved around the back of my neck, gripping me possessively as Xander licked and teased the seam of my mouth, coaxing me to let him in. My hands fisted his hoodie as I fell willingly into him, the feel of his lips, the heat of his body beneath me. “Xander,” I breathed, kissing him harder, deeper. Our tongues slid together, slow and searching. Xander’s fingers twined in my hair and he yanked gently, giving him better access to trail hot open-mouthed kisses over my jaw and down my throat. “I must taste lovely,” I chuckled, all too aware that I’d just worked a six-hour shift at Cindy’s Grill. Xander met my gaze, pure need glittering there. “You think I care?” He rolled his hips, showing me exactly how much he didn’t care. A bolt of lust shot through me. “More,” I panted. But I saw the torment in his eyes. Xander wouldn’t cross that line. Not here, not yet. But God, I needed him to touch me. I needed something to tamp down the flames threatening to burn me inside out.   Feeling a lick of confidence, I shifted above him slightly and then lowered myself down. Right over him. His throaty growl made my skin vibrate, sending delicious shivers shooting through me.   “Fuck, Peyton.” His hands slid to my ass again, pulling my body closer, rocking me against his hard length. “This is dangerous…” “We’re not doing anything.” I leaned in, smirking against his mouth as I kissed him. “Not really.” He chuckled darkly, kissing me back with as much desperation as I felt. This wasn’t wrong. It wasn’t. How could it be wrong when it felt so right?     He’s not the hero of her story… no matter how much she wants him to be.   From bestselling author LA Cotton, comes a forbidden age-gap romance.

But behind her smile and sass is a girl lost and alone, searching for her place in the world. Xander Chase has always been on the outside looking in. But behind his cool indifference and hard exterior is a guy afraid to open his heart to anyone. When he saves Peyton from a tragic accident, their lives are entwined forever. But Xander’s not the hero of her story… no matter how much she wants him to be. She’s a girl with her whole life ahead of her. He’s a guy who is drifting through life. And although these two lost souls might be able to heal each other, there’s one glaring problem. She’s still in high school… And completely forbidden. About the Author: Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult novels, LA COTTON is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.   Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find LA immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.   Connect w/L.A.
