Author: Nicola Haken
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 29, 2018
Cover Design: Sommer Stein at Perfect Pear Creative Covers

 

 
Crime families and mob wars only exist in the movies. Betrayal. Violence. Murder. They don’t happen to ordinary people.
 
Right?
 
Wrong.
 
For Lincoln Hollis, this is his world, and there isn’t a clapperboard in sight. A trained killer and advocate of justice, he’s been sent to unravel the neat little bow tied around Kate Fletcher’s perfect life, exposing her to the brutal truths she’s been so meticulously shielded from, before delivering the ultimate punishment for her family’s sins.
 
There’s just one problem. They’re his family’s sins, too, and he must make a choice.
 
Who will he say goodbye to first?

 

Nicola lives in Rochdale, England with her husband and four children. She is the author of multi-genre romance, including the Amazon international bestseller, Broken. When she is not busy playing with her imaginary friends (or talking about them with real life friends) she can usually be found carrying out her ordinary mum/housewife/all-round-slave duties, bingeing on boxsets, drinking too much Pepsi Max, or fussing over her menagerie of pets. Oh, and if the kids ever ask, she moonlights as the Pink Power Ranger while they’re sleeping…

Don’t miss out on Sexy Evan– Amazon Review

 

“Welcome to Margo’s. Can I get you another beer or some food?” I asked, focusing my attention on Evan.
 
Leveling that green gaze on me, he said, “Yeah, can I get a burger?” My pulse fluttered under his rapt stare. The man wasn’t cowboy enough for me, but he sure was something worth looking at. His dark hair and beard only helped to accentuate those fabulous green eyes. Now that I was up close and personal, I also took note of his lips. They were full, perfect, and very sexy.
 
“Hello?” he called out in a somewhat irritated tone.
 
“Oh, uh, sorry. What was that?” I asked, embarrassed to be caught staring.
 
“Food?” he clipped.
 
I started to apologize again, but instead, found myself saying, “Yes, what about it?”
 
“Can we order some or are you going to stand there staring at us all night?” Talk about rude.
 
“Sure thing, honey. What would you like?” I asked in a sugar-sweet voice. His green eyes narrowed in on me and I smiled. Take that Rock Star.
 
“I would like a hamburger.”
 
“On it?” I questioned.
 
“On what?” he asked, clearly getting more irritated by the second.
 
“What would you like on it?” I asked, carefully enunciating each word. His friends laughed.
 
“Cheese, Let—”
 
“Kind?” I interrupted.
 
“Huh?” he questioned.
 
“What kind of cheese, dude?” his buddy asked for me.
 
Catching the female’s eye, I winked and she smiled.
 
“Fuck!” Evan hissed. “I don’t care. Just give me a damn cheeseburger with the works.”
 
Lifting my brows, I asked, “The works?” I wanted to make sure I’d heard him right.
 
“Yeeees,” he replied in the same slow tone I’d given him earlier.
 
Tit for tat, I thought, but answered, “Sure thing, doll. One burger with the works, coming right up.” This guy was a real twit. After taking the other orders, I quickly escaped to the kitchen.
 
“You’re sure he wants the works?” Sam asked.
 
Somehow managing to keep a straight face, I confirmed that the customer did, indeed, want a burger with the works. I left Sam mumbling behind the stove and returned to the bar, smiling all the way.
 
“So, what are they like?” Alex-Ann whispered.
 
“Chaz and his girl are nice,” I told her.
 
“And Evan?”
 
“I’m back,” Gretchen interrupted. “Thanks for watching my table.”
 
“Order up!” Sam called from the kitchen.
 
“That’s for table six,” I directed at Gretchen. Not even two minutes passed before the bar was interrupted by a loud commotion.
 
“What the hell is on this?” I heard shouted from across the room. My inner bitch gave a silent whoop and a fist pump and I had to bite back the urge to cackle with glee. Serves the shit-heel right.
 
A minute or so later, Gretchen called out, “Quinn, you’re needed at table six!”
 
Zeroing in on my smirk, Alex-Ann whispered, “What did you do?”
 
Ignoring her question, I slid out from behind the bar and made my way over to table six. Evan’s face was no longer pale, but more like the color of a ripe tomato. That’s what habanero peppers would do to you.
 
“What the hell did you put on this?” he wheezed between gulps of water.
 
“I’m sorry, you did say you wanted the works, didn’t you?” I could tell the guy wanted to blast me.
 
“He did,” Chaz chimed in, which earned him an evil glare.
 
“People are staring. Let’s go,” Evan grumbled.
 
“I’m sorry. Did I do something wrong?” I questioned, my tone filled with fake concern. Without answering, he scooted from the booth and walked out the door.

Kidnapped and placed on the isolated island of Acaboa, she could not single out a suspect- was it Will? Her homophobic acquaintance from school now President of the United States of America who wanted her out of the way so he could have Jackie, her best friend, all to himself.
Or could it be Jackie’s father who wanted her out of Jackie’s life because he considered Kelly to be a bad influence on his daughter.
And will Kelly get a chance to reveal to Jackie how she truly feels about her. 
 
Come and see for yourself in this tale of lesbian love sprinkled with deception, lust and lies.
Judy Ramsook was taking a mental note of a few anti gay comments a certain POTUS said while running for President in the early 2000s. And wondered what a fictitious one would do if he suddenly learned that a close family member were not only gay, but seeing a lesbian he knew and hated.

Craft Brew (Trouble Brewing) 

by Layla Reyne 

Amazon Link: http://a.co/d/grdVoO2

Synopsis:

Assistant US attorney Dominic Price is staring down the barrel of his father’s debts. The bull’s-eye on his back makes him a threat to everyone he cares about, so when his lover wants to go public with their relationship, he bolts. Not because he isn’t in love–he can’t stomach the thought of putting Cam in danger.

Kidnap and rescue expert Cameron Byrne is determined to figure out what trouble Nic is running from, but devastating news from home brings him back to Boston and to the cold case that has haunted his family for two decades. Shoving aside his pride, he calls Nic for help.

Together they search for answers, navigating the minefield of Cam’s past. But when they get too close to the truth, Cam must use every skill in his arsenal to save the man he loves…before it’s too late.

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

Craft Brew is book 2 in the Trouble Brewing series by Layla Reyne, and also a spinoff of Irish  & Whiskey series. Although I did struggle a bit with book 1 in this series, I absolutely loved this one.

It has been four months since Cam and Nic became a couple, even though their relationship is still unknown to their friends. Nic is still looking over his shoulder because of his father’s activities are still a problem, with no solution in sight. Nic is determined to keep himself and his friends safe and out of harm’s way.  He is almost relieved when Cam has to return to Boston for his family. But when open wounds get the best of Cam, he asks Nic for help. Together, along with Jamie, they try to put an end to a nightmare that has been plaguing Cam and his family for years.

While I struggled in book 1 with Nic and Cam being in a relationship, this story solidifies their feelings. Nic is protective and caring for Cam when Cam, himself, is struggling on many different levels. In fact, I moved Nic to the perfect boyfriend list.

I am thrilled that is going to be a third book. I hope that we finally get to see more of Nic’s past and hopefully overcome his demons.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/NetGalley, in exchange for a honest review. Reviewed by Diana Murphy of Turning Pages at Midnight ~ Goodreads ~ https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/125752-turning-pages-at-midnight-book-blog

Title: Art of Survial Part 2
Series: A Stern Family Saga
Author: Monique Orgeron
Genre: Contemporary Romance Suspense
Release Date: October 19, 2018
Cover Design: Serendipity Formats

 

If you don’t understand the instinct to merely survive, you will never understand me.

 

 
I’ve done my penance and paid a heavy price for my choices.
 
It was never for selfish reasons that I became the person I am today.
 
No, I can be called many things but selfish will never be one of them.
 
It was always for them. My children.
 
No regrets and no do-overs.
 
The grim reaper is knocking on my door. It’s my time.
 
I was fine with it. I knew this day would eventually come and I was ready.
 
I was tired of living a life of battles in order to survive. 
 
Then I was forced to see how overwhelmingly beautiful life is and how tragically short my days could be.
 
With limited time, I have to find a way to finish my job and get my sons ready for what is in store for them.
 
They want me to fight and I will but in return, they too must fight.
 
Am I ready for the battle of my life?
 
Will they be ready?
PROLOGUE
ART OF SURVIVAL
Survival, 
 
What does it truly mean? It’s simply continuing to exist no matter who or what, has gotten in your way. 
 
Well, I did it! I survived! Every damn bit life had to throw at me, I continued to exist. 
 
However, what is survival, if it was never meant for something meaningful? 
 
Sure, I existed but did I allow myself to truly live, to be happy, to feel deserving of anything?
 
I don’t really believe I did. For years, my only thought was I needed to survive for my children. For their futures. But now, I want to survive for me.
 
Now that my memories have all been written down, I’m somewhat relieved. Lost in the burden of secrecy I’ve held onto for so long. I wonder, when all is revealed, what will they think? Will they see me differently?
 
No, I think they will see me for me, for who I really am. A woman who did what was necessary. A woman who lived a life filled with struggles but made something of herself for them. 
 
I need to survive for me. I need to live. I don’t want to leave this life without having more. I might not be deserving, but I sure in the hell want to fight for it.
 
My children have won the battle. By forcing me to see my life isn’t over, they gave me something to actually live for. In return, I will give them this. They need this as much as I do now. 
 
I’m not sure what the outcome will be, and I don’t know if I am strong enough to fight this final war, but I want to. No, correction. I will. I’m going to find the strength.
 
I am going to go into this next battle swinging and kicking and telling the world to fuck off. 
 
I want to live! I want to be happy!
I want to finally be free!
Written by Monique Orgeron’s eldest, most beautiful, and intelligent daughter. (My sister is going to hate this part.)

My mom happens to be the most caring, loving, and stubborn person I know, well anyone knows. She gives 100% percent of herself to everyone and has given up so much of herself for my sister and I. For twenty-one years she has poured her heart and soul into making sure we know that we are loved and that we can do anything we put our minds too, but it was about time she figured that out about herself. 
 
Up until this year I hadn’t seen my mom do anything for only her, but this book has allowed her to travel the world through the pages of a book, make new friends, and feel the joy of doing something exciting. 
 
There is a new light behind her eyes and it is just making me feel more joy than she can ever imagine. While she might be annoying most of the time, I am so thrilled that she is finally allowing herself to grow as a person and not spend all of her energy on her family. 
 
It has been a long journey of self-discovery for my mom; she has gone from domestic supermom to domestic goddess throughout the process of writing. 
 
We are so very excited and proud of you! I love you as big as the world.
 
-Bria and Tony

“YOU’RE AT MY MERCY NOW, AMORE.”
Sorry, bella. You got dealt the losing hand.
Witness to a crime, you’re my prisoner now.
I didn’t mean for things to happen this way,
But tying you to my bed and making you scream
Is an unexpected pleasure. A privilege, really.
And even if I did trust you, now that I’ve had a taste,
I’m not sure I’d let you go…
