 PRE-ORDER & COVER REVEAL: THE RAVEN by Sylvain ReynardThis is is the first book in a new paranormal romance series set in Florence, Italy. It will be released on February 3, 2015. PRE-ORDER NOW.

Raven Wood spends her days at Florence’s Uffizi gallery restoring Renaissance art. But an innocent walk home after an evening with friends changes her life forever. When she intervenes in the senseless beating of a homeless man, his attackers turn on her, dragging her into an alley. Raven is only semiconscious when their assault is interrupted by a cacophony of growls followed by her attackers’ screams. Mercifully, she blacks out, but not before catching a glimpse of a shadowy figure who whispers to her . . .

Cassita vulneratus.

When Raven awakes, she is inexplicably changed. Upon returning to the Uffizi, no one recognizes her. More disturbingly, she discovers that she’s been absent an entire week. With no recollection of her disappearance, Raven learns that her absence coincides with one of the largest robberies in Uffizi history—the theft of a set of priceless Botticelli illustrations. When the police identify her as their prime suspect, Raven is desperate to clear her name. She seeks out one of Florence’s wealthiest and most elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth. Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secrets . . .

 ADD TO YOUR TBR: SCORING WILDER by R.S. Grey Don’t forget to add this sexy, romantic comedy about a forbidden romance between an up-and-coming soccer player and her “coach”, who just happens to be the bad boy of professional soccer! It is a stand alone and will be released on June 19th! ADD TO GOODREADS.

COVER REVEAL: GRACE FOR DROWNING. This is a new fighter romance about two people fighting their own demons and together they learn to hope and heal. It will be released on June 29th. Although there will be a sequel the author has said that there is no cliffhanger and the story elements will be resolved by the end of the book. ADD TO GOODREADS

Hope is a dangerous thing. I know that more than most. Everything good I’ve ever had has been stolen from me — my friends, my fiance, my innocence, some would say even my sanity. All I have left is the cage. Fighting is the only thing that eases the ache inside me even a little. It’s the only thing that keeps the bottle at bay.

I was content to ride out my life alone. I was done dreaming that things could be better. But then I met Grace, and suddenly, all I could do was dream.

She’s battling those same demons, only she’s losing. I don’t want to care, but something about her calls to me. That pain in her eyes is so sharp, so familiar. I know it’s only a matter of time before it pulls her below the surface.

I can help her, and maybe, just maybe, she can help me too. For the first time in what feels like forever, I’ve got hope, and that scares the hell out of me.

★ PRE-ORDER ALERT: IRIS by R.K. Lilley. This is the he second installment in The Wild Side serial, is now available for pre-order! It will be released on June 27th and will answer “Who is Iris? Where did she come from? Where has she gone?”  PRE-ORDER NOW

Alasdair Masters has more questions than answers about his new, too young obsession, and when he finds out she’s been lying to him, from their first meeting to their last one, he’s more confused than ever about her feelings, her intentions.

And what’s just as confusing are his own feelings. Has he turned something purely physical into something emotional in his own head? Is any of it mutual? The only thing he doesn’t question is whether he’ll keep going back for more.

DAIR

Me, I was simple. I was order. A very neat, efficient machine that ran on nothing but air.

Me plus anyone else, well, that was another matter. And me plus Iris, that was a monster of a machine, with all gears going at different speeds, some spinning off their hinges, just going mad, but it was a wonderful madness, at full throttle, misfiring in all directions.

It felt wonderful and dreadful.

I was breaking down, and it felt amazing.

And terrifying.

Seventeen days later when another picked up the pieces. Seventeen years together. Seventeen thousand problems. Seventeen days of reliving my past and finding a new future. Seventeen minutes until it all went up in flames. Seventeen breaths until I took my last.

INFINITY + ONE by Amy Harmon → This is a modern take on Bonnie & Clyde. It is about two people who “take a journey that will not only change their lives, but may cost them their lives as well.” It “is a tale of shooting stars and fame and fortune, of gilded cages and iron bars, of finding a friend behind a stranger’s face, and discovering love in the oddest of places.” This is a stand alone.

TOO MUCH by Lea Griffin → This is an erotic second chance romance about realizing that love never goes away in the backdrop of a BDSM club. I don’t really know much else about this one but the reviews have said this book is HOT!!

This trilogy is a paranormal romance that involves history, witches, vampires, time travel and mystical elements and will take you on a wild journey.

HUGE SALE: THE BRONZE HORSEMAN by Paulina Simons (ONLY $1.99) → I do not know how long it will be at this price since it is normally over $10. It is the first book in a three book series, but cannot be read as just a stand alone. I haven’t read it but I’ve heard it is one epic romance that is beautifully written. It is set in Russia during WWII and is a love story between a young girl and a solider that has everything going against them.

It was one of the first indie books I ever read and for that I will always hold a special place in my heart for it. I highly recommend you read this series! It tells “one girl’s story of life-changing love, unspeakable cruelty, and her precarious grasp of hope”

LEFT DROWNING by Jessica Park (ONLY $1.99) → I don’t know why I haven’t read this book yet. I just read the blurb and it sounds like the perfect emotional read. It is about two college seniors who are just trying to stay above water after family tragedy plagues them both. This is a stand alone.

THIRD DEGREE by Julie Cross (ONLY $0.99) → I read this book a few months ago and I really enjoyed this tale about a child prodigy who goes back to college in an effort to gain “real life” experiences and the boy who helped her get them.

FLAT OUT LOVE by Jessica Park (ONLY $2.00) →  This is a YA romance that has been out for a while now and I’ve heard great things about it.
