Collins Attwood

My parents are dead.
My brother, Lucas, has been shot.
Our world has crumbled down around us, and we have nowhere to go.
For the last year, my brother and I have been on the run hiding from whoever killed our parents. The details are spotty, but Lucas thinks our father stole money from the mob and the day our parents were killed is the same day they came to collect.
I don't want to believe him, but I don't have a choice. We're running out of time and money. If I don't find us a place to lie low for longer than a month or two, we're as good as dead, too. Or we would be if I hadn't stumbled upon a want ad: TUTOR NEEDED.
I didn't do too bad in college. How hard could it be?

Miceli Daidone

Being the head of the Daidone Family comes with its inherent risks and there are certain aspects of my life I won't chance.
Ever again.
My daughter, Rocca, is the spitting image of her mother. Every day I am reminded of how, in a single instant, I failed my family.
When Collins Attwood enters my life, I know she's carrying a burden someone so young shouldn't be. I also know her real identity. There's a bounty on her and her brother's head.
Why? The syndicate of families won't say—which is troubling.
Asking Collins is a non-starter as well.
Each day she's in my home, the attraction between us grows harder to ignore. The need to protect her overrules my rationale, making me vulnerable. In order to defend her, I have to earn her trust. Unfortunately, faith doesn't come easy for someone like me.
For all I know, this could be a trap.
I've been given a second chance at love, but in order to open my heart again, I have to know the truth.
They say love is blind.
I suspect it might also be stupid.

Mafia Manipulator is a dark mafia/age gap/enemies to lovers romance inspired by Park Avenue Player.

Release Boost: Take the Lead by Jaqueline Snowe

 




Title: Take the Lead
Series: Central State #3
Author: Jaqueline Snowe
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2022


BLURB

Falling for my fake girlfriend was never part of the plan...

Daniella Laughlin might seem put together in her dance gear and captainship, but on the inside, she’s figuring out who she is without her mom’s beauty pageant influence. Constantly being critiqued and set up by her mom, she dreads going home for the holidays.

Enter her best friend’s older brother, hockey captain Gabriel Van Helsing. Dani and Gabe have been friends for two decades, and sure, she’s harbored a secret crush on him forever, but she never acted on it because his sister would’ve killed her. Gabe’s a player, on and off the ice, and the longest relationship he’s had is with his hockey stick. He offers to drive her home for Thanksgiving break and proposes the most bonkers idea—they should fake date until New Year’s to get her mom to leave her alone.

Gabe might wear the C on the ice, but he’s always been passive. Here for a good time, never rocking the boat. But after his latest hookup wouldn’t take a hint, he uses Daniella’s predicament for the perfect solution: if he was unavailable, people would leave him alone.

Things begin easily with their friendship, but with every touch and fake kiss, Daniella can’t hide her feelings anymore. And for Gabe, who sets deadlines for every fling he’s ever had, he struggles to fight for what he wants. When their timeline is up, Daniella’s insecurities clash with Gabe’s inability to commit. For two people hesitant to take a chance, they must risk their decade-long friendship for a shot at love.

Release Blitz: One Little Victory by Kat Long

 

Title: One Little Victory
Series: Southern Charms
Author: Kat Long
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 1, 2022
Cover Design: Kris Guiao






Addison
The past often attacks the present with the pain of memories.
So I stopped chasing dreams built on broken words. My plan’s simple: Work hard, play harder, and never—ever—get involved with anyone. But one chance encounter with Simon Kelly turns my world upside down. He’s too pretentious, too arrogant—and don’t get me started on his storm gray eyes.
When a picture of us lands in the tabloids, we come to an arrangement. We’ll pretend to date, then go our separate ways.

Simon
Addison wants to play pretend?
Fine. We’ll restore our reputations and I’ll accept that no amount of guilt can change the past. But the feelings are real—too real to let her go. I know what I want, and I’m going to get it. I’ll prove to her we’re better together than apart.
I’m here to change her story.




 


Kat lives at the beach with her Happily Ever After, a daughter, and two irritating but lovable cats.
Before she started writing contemporary romance, she graduated with a Master’s Degree in School Psychology.
Now, by day she works in Finance, and by night she writes.
Books have always made her heart beat faster, and she started writing her first novel after dreaming up an Alpha-Marshmallow.
Her characters are sexy, clever, and fearless, but in real life Kat’s the ultimate over-thinker. Let’s face it, her inner monologues would not make good reading.
She flips for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s heat.
When she’s not reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably watching Animal Planet in yoga pants, trying not to over water her succulents, drinking too much coffee, and wondering if the real meaning of life is forty-two.

BLURB

Guilt: “A self-conscious emotion characterized by a painful appraisal of having done (or thought) something that is wrong and often by a readiness to take action designed to undo or mitigate this wrong.”

Malakai Reed
When my heart failed me, she came bursting through the dark tunnel with her light and brought me back to life. She touched a part of my soul that was nonexistent, proving that even a man like me could love someone so beautiful. And that I deserved to be loved in return.
I should have known better than to think I could have someone so precious by my side.
Then the worst night of my life happened. That night was a clusterfuck from the beginning. Too much red tape, even to save one of our own. We were given a hard time getting the green light until we said fuck it and went to get our brother back.
She wasn’t supposed to be there. We didn’t know she was there.
What happened that night set in motion how I deserved to live out the rest of my days.
Without her in it.

Talya Grayson
He was the light that sparked a love inside me I never knew existed. I wanted something more for myself but didn’t know what, until I saved his life. I felt alone in the world. Lost. but with him, I felt a sense of belonging. Like my place was by his side.
And then that night ruined everything, in ways neither of us could ever understand.
In the depths of hell, he pulled me out of my worst nightmare, only to throw me into another.
One where he was no longer with me.

Guilt consumes you in the worst possible way. Especially when you know you failed the one you love.
