Release Blitz~ The Darcy Monologues

   

Synopsis


“You must allow me to tell you...”


For over two hundred years, Jane Austen’s Mr. Darcy has captivated readers’ imaginations as the ultimate catch. Rich. Powerful. Noble. Handsome. And yet, as Miss Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” is established through Elizabeth Bennet’s fine eyes, how are we to know what his tortured soul is indeed thinking? How does Darcy progress from “She is tolerable: but not handsome enough to tempt me” to “I thought only of you”?

In this romance anthology, fifteen Austen-inspired authors assemble to sketch Darcy’s character through a series of re-imaginings set in the Regency through contemporary times—from faithful narratives to the fanciful. Herein “The Darcy Monologues”, the man himself reveals his intimate thoughts, his passionate dreams, and his journey to love—all told with a previously concealed wit and enduring charm.Stories by: Susan Adriani * Sara Angelini * Karen M Cox * J. Marie Croft * Jan Hahn * Jenetta James * Lory Lilian * KaraLynne Mackrory * Beau North * Ruth Phillips Oakland * Natalie Richards * Sophia Rose * Melanie Stanford * Joana Starnes * Caitlin Williams

SYNOPSIS:

For love or for honor? Sometimes being fated to each other just isn’t enough.
For the past six months, wolf shifter Thomas Blackwood has been serving two masters. He believes in Alpha Squad’s mission to help the newly outed shifter population integrate into human society, and has done his best to contribute to its success. At the same time, he’s been reporting on the squad’s activities to his alpha back home. But everything changes when the squad is sent in to investigate a string of crimes with a pack of renegade wolves right at the center of the case. Suddenly Thomas must choose: follow his alpha’s orders and kill the investigation before it even starts, or remain true to Alpha Squad’s calling and uncover the truth; whether it implicates members of his own species or not.
And that’s not even the worst part: the woman he’s been admiring from afar since joining the squad already doesn’t give him the time of day. What would Private Callahan think of him if she knew he was a traitor?
Private Jill Callahan has been doing her utmost to ignore the one Alpha Squad member who could turn her world upside-down: Thomas Blackwood. From the moment the handsome wolf shifter arrived on base, her emotions have been trying to get the better of her. So in the interest of maintaining her professionalism, she has been avoiding him completely.
When Blackwood starts acting suspiciously, and nobody seems to notice it but her, Jill no longer has that luxury. She feels compelled to investigate what’s really going on and if it ends in heartbreak, then so be it.
Jill and Thomas’s loyalties are tested when they realize why they haven’t been able to shake their attraction to each other. They’re meant for each other, but sometimes things just aren’t so simple. The mission – and the squad – must come first.
Join Alpha Squad in this steamy paranormal romance you won’t want to put down. If you like Alpha City by Bryce Evans or Bear Patrol by Scarlett Grove, then you will love the Alpha Squad Series by Lorelei Moone!

Release Blitz~ Hard Liquor by Blair Babylon




Title: Hard Liquor
Series: Runaway Billionaires: Arthur Duet #2
Author: Blair Babylon
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 16, 2017



Blurb

Trial lawyer Gen has managed to corral that randy colt His Lordship Arthur Finch-Hatten, the Earl of Severn, at least as far as anyone knows. In public, he seems to be behaving himself, but she’s kind of gotten involved with her client in a way that the Bar’s Ethics Committee would totally not approve of. With Arthur’s impending trial in the House of Lords and the constant backstabbing in her law office, the last thing Gen needs is for Arthur to whisk her off to Paris for the social wedding of the century to schmooze the people who will decide his fate.

Gen has broken all the rules, and she could very well end up with a broken heart.

She needs a stiff drink, and it had better be hard liquor.

Hard Liquor is the exciting conclusion to the Arthur Duet that begins with Stiff Drink.

Release Blitz~ Forever Touched by Lilly Wilde

Lilly Wilde Book Release Blitz

Forever Touched: Book #6, The Untouched Series
Title: Forever Touched
Series: The Untouched Series #6
Release Date: May 21, 2017
Author: Lilly Wilde

Note: This is the final book of The Untouched Series and is not intended to be read as a standalone.





Aiden Wyatt Raine. 
Giving in to him. Loving him. Marrying him.

Aria’s reality bears no resemblance to her lifelong plan of remaining single and detached. As a matter of fact, her world is a direct contrast to what she thought she wanted—she’s the mother of an adorable baby boy and the wife of billionaire business mogul, Aiden Raine. Having buried scars of her past, Aria’s living the happily ever after she once believed to only exist within the pages of a fairy tale. Aria’s life appears to be perfect, yet a part of her feels it’s all a dream and fears what’s waiting for her when she awakens.


Aria Cason Raine.
Finding her. Rescuing her. Marrying her.

Aiden’s privileged life is not without challenges, most of which he faces and overcomes without batting an eye, but his greatest challenge to date, is Aria Cason. From the initial glance, he knew she was the one he’d claim as his own. He’s captivated by a wife he can’t get enough of and a son who centers his universe. He finally has it all—a family he holds closer to his heart than anything else. And as Aiden prepares to reveal the details of an unsettled vendetta, he holds on even tighter.

Aria and Aiden were starting a story that would lead them to forever, but their world starts to unravel when Aiden pulls the trigger on a plot that’s been brewing for months, a blow that not only rocks his new marriage, but also rips through the entire Raine family. What happens when the family whose polished veneer finally started to ring true, spirals into even more disarray? 

Determined to keep their promises, Aiden and Aria fight to recover from Aiden’s bout with revenge, but their resilience is short-lived when the past and present collide, resulting in a tragedy that threatens to permanently alter the dynamic of their relationship. 

Aria and Aiden knew they would face adversity, but neither of them expected the heartache and loss that could leave their marriage dangling in the balance. 

What started as uncontrollable lust became the story of two lives, two hearts and one soul, but can the couple who’ve so intricately entwined their hearts, uphold their vows of now until forever

Forever Touched brings a heart wrenchingly poignant conclusion 
to the passionate love story that is The Untouched Series.











Forever Touched by Lilly Wilde
This deserves 10 stars! 

I have to say, I love Lilly Wilde's writing! You feel everything! I have loved her since the first chapter of Book One, Untouched. Lilly has an awesome way of delivering the sex scenes. The sex is not in this book as a “filler”. It’s intrinsic to the story line and it's hot as hell! 

This final book had me in tears, had me laughing and had me angry, but the journey with Aiden and Aria is one every reader should enjoy! It feels like they're part of my family. Forever Touched delivered on every level: joy, sorrow, fear, anger, and so much more. The obstacles Aria and Aiden have to endure are heartbreaking and I can so see everyday people enduring them too. You might find something you have in common. 

Lilly Wilde has outdone herself! This series has been and will continue to be my all-time favorite! The emotions Lilly gets you to feel are heart pounding, breathless and will leave you craving more.

This love story is EPIC! Aria and Aiden were meant for each other.

~Amazon Reviewer, Carolyn Muller




Amazing!!!! 

This book is more amazing than I had even hoped for. It takes "page turner" to a whole new level. I've never been so emotionally captivated by a series. This will make you get all up in your emotions - sad, happy, excited. You will not want to put it down! You will not know what's next, you think you will and BAM! You are wrong! If I could give this more than five stars I would.
The story feels like a reality to me and I love that!! If you are looking for a connection that you've never felt this is it! But please buckle your seat belt, here comes the ride of your life. 

Lilly Wilde sure knows how to make your world disappear! 

~Goodreads Reviewer, Julie Scheidt



Tears + Laughter = Epic Conclusion and 10 Stars for Lilly Wilde!

We begin back in Boston with Aria, Aiden and Lyric settling in as a normal, happy family… well as normal as can be expected in the busy life of a Raine. Aria and Aiden are learning to lean on each other, and have let down their walls and found strength in each other. But as we have learned throughout this series, there are events that threaten to rebuild those walls.
With such descriptive writings, a skill that Lilly excels at, I could literally see the scenes being played out as if it were a movie. I found myself laughing out loud at the playful banter between this dynamic couple. Lilly came out swinging with those steamy scenes that had my heart racing. (Consider yourself warned) But when tragedy struck, the sadness, anger and despair was just as vivid… leaving me a sleepless, sobbing mess.
I honestly became more in love with this series as I watched it come full circle. This was the perfect conclusion to a beautiful heart wrenching series that will leave me Forever Touched.

Thank you, Lilly for sharing Aria and Aiden with me.

~Amazon Reviewer, Beth King

Other Books In The Series
Untouched, Book #1

Untouched is an enthralling story of Aria Cason who has turned her back on 
love in favor of her career.

Aria's past gives her reason to redirect her life and strictly focus on success; allowing
little to no room for anything more.

Every part of Aria's life is structured and organized, including love and sex, which are always strategically planned until Aiden Wyatt. Aiden surfaces at Raine Publishing House as an intern who, from the initial meeting, causes several side-steps for Aria. Aiden's extraordinary good looks and commanding demeanor change Aria’s structured world, unlocking feelings that she has vowed to never embrace as he introduces her to a world of intimacy she's never before experienced.

Aiden's presence ultimately forces her to face past demons and fight to keep the current ones at bay as she realizes that running is never the answer.


Untouched (Book One in The Untouched Series)



Touched, Book #2

Touched, the sequel to the debut novel Untouched, continues with the emotionally 
provocative journey of Aria Cason and Aiden Wyatt.

Aria had meticulously constructed her world - both in the boardroom and in the bedroom. Her life was exactly as she wanted it and everything made sense…before Aiden. After Aiden, was an entirely different story. Aiden’s disarming and unrelenting allure eventually stripped Aria of her protective shield allowing Aiden emotional and sexual access that she’d considered forbidden to any man.

Aiden forced emotions to the surface that Aria had rebuked since childhood, touching a part of her that she found disturbingly unfamiliar. She now finds herself in a unique position as she shuffles to regain her balance and reassemble the pieces that Aiden left in his wake. But how will she suppress what Aiden somehow managed to awaken?

Led by career aspirations, Aria reluctantly maneuvers within Aiden's orbit and their forced pairing eventually hits several hurdles.

Is Aria strong enough to fight her instincts and remain in Aiden's world? Will her initial reservations resurface, confirming her convictions that love can only result in tragedy? Or will Aiden ultimately convince Aria that love isn't the disaster she always thought? Regardless of the option Aria chooses, Aiden’s past and other secrets will unfold, forcing Aria down a path she never saw coming.


Touched (Book Two in The Untouched Series)



Touched by Him, Book #3


How do you protect the one you love from the one who loves you? Touched By Him adds yet another gripping chapter to Aria and Aiden’s tumultuous love story.

Aria Cason’s new life in Belize comes to an abrupt halt when a betrayal forces her to abandon her carefully laid plans. To protect a love she thought she’d never have, Aria makes an impossible decision that places her at the mercy of the man she loves, but desperately wants to hate.

Aiden Raine is determined to bury his love for Aria, but when an unexpected truth is revealed, his world once again collides with hers. As a means to an end, Aiden reluctantly enters a tenuous relationship with the one woman whose betrayal he may never forgive.

Bound by a love they never predicted - Aria and Aiden struggle to coexist in a world that seems too small. They are pulled apart by their need for control yet tormented by a passion they cannot escape.

Betrayal, animosity, love, lust and lies all collide in the third book of The Untouched Series.


Touched by Him (Book Three of The Untouched Series)




Only His Touch, Part One, Book #4

The pain of deceit was fresh, but love and desire overruled everything else. Now, Aria and Aiden face their greatest challenge yet.

Aria Cason’s life took an unexpected turn when she reconnected with Aiden Raine, the man who awakened a pure and undeniable love she’d thought was lost forever. Aria’s love for him burns deep, yet he still pushes for more—the total surrender of her heart. When a painful memory becomes her guiding light, she questions if a happily ever after really exists for a girl who never wanted one. After stepping away from his birthright, Aiden’s need to protect his new family becomes his top priority.

Fragile bonds are soon stretched to the breaking point as his need for vengeance threatens to destroy the very thing he’s come to value most. When his unyielding determination starts to push Aria away, he presents her with a challenge that will test them both.

Will the searing passion that reunited this couple keep them together, or will it burn them to ash?

Ties will be broken. Lies will become the truth. Aria and Aiden’s heart-wrenching story continues in the fourth book of The Untouched Series.


Only His Touch, Part One (Book Four of The Untouched Series)

Release Blitz~ Somebody Else's Sky by Jessica Hawkins




Title: Somebody Else's Sky
Series: Something in the Way #2
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017



Blurb

If I closed my eyes, I could still see them—all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake’s gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany’s tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly.
A better man would’ve walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I’d keep enough distance. If I’d learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.
Lake was everything I wanted, and nothing I could ever have. I was nobody before I knew her and a criminal after. The way to love her was to let her shine—even if it would be for somebody else.
Book two in the Something in the Way series, an epic, 3-book saga of forbidden love...
