Amazon US / Amazon UK / B&N



How do you trust someone who is everything you’re trying to avoid? Harper Lindell is having a bad day. You know, if a bad day consists of getting fired from your cushy job and then catching your boyfriend red handed playing hide the salami. Sick of meeting the same guys over and over, Harper decides to try her luck at Internet dating. How bad could it be? Right? Tate Washington wasn’t looking to meet anyone. Still dealing with the consequences of his one serious relationship, all he’s interested in is revamping his family’s behind-the-times café. He didn’t plan on seeing the beautiful receptionist from Argo again, walking into his life to use his café as a dating hub, and using him as a BFF. Can Harper really trust Tate, who is everything she thinks she needs to steer clear of? Can Tate wait while Harper works through her insecurities and fears?  


Tate chuckles as he picks up a tomato and throws it to me. Thanking my quick reflexes, I catch it mid-air. “Here, cut those,” he says, gesturing to the pile of tomatoes already stacked on the bench next to where he is preparing bacon. I pop the tomato down and head to wash my hands. Once I return to the counter, Tate approaches me with an apron and wraps his arms around me as he ties the strings in front. We get stuck into it and work in companionable silence for the next few minutes. “I’m sorry about the other day,” he says, not pausing for a second from the bacon he is cutting. “I know,” I respond. “I’m glad we’re okay.” “Me, too.” Silence descends once more, and we continue our tasks before Tate speaks again. “The other day, you said how you’ve never felt an instant connection with someone before.” “Yeah?” I ask warily, wondering if I freaked him out. “I didn’t get to tell you that I feel the same. When we’re together, it feels right.” “Yeah … it does.” Even though we don’t mention another thing about it, the silence doesn’t come again as the shots keep flowing and the music on the old radio gets louder and louder. We are laughing and carrying on and there is more ‘accidental’ touching on both sides. ‘Black Widow’ by Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora flows through the speakers and I sigh in happiness. “I love this song.” I leave my tomatoes behind to shake my hips all over the kitchen to the beat, singing along with the lyrics. Warmth covers my back as two strong hands land on my hips. Tate pushes into me from behind and moves his hips along with my own or forces my hips to move along with his—I’m not sure. “You’re so fucking sexy, Harper,” he whispers into my ear. “I won’t be able to keep this friendship platonic if you keep shaking your ass like that in my kitchen.” His warm breath flows over my collarbone as he nuzzles my neck and goosebumps break out across my skin. Tate must notice as he lifts his head and slowly peppers small, light kisses along the crease of my shoulder. My head rolls back onto his shoulder, and my body liquefies at the intimate and sensual touch. He’s breaking down my walls. My common sense. He’s slowly softening me, melting me so he can mould me as he pleases, and it’s working. As the realisation hits me, I jump out of Tate’s arms, grab hold of his hand, and pull him to the middle of the kitchen. I smile seductively at him and wink. “I’ll just have to keep you in line and focused then.” He throws his head back and laughs, allowing me to ignore the moment and lead him around the centre workbench as we shake, shimmy, and wiggle to ‘Shake it Off’ by Taylor Swift, which is now playing on the stereo.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT + Q&A ~ Devil You Know by Max Henry

Release Month Special: Exclusive Blog Post

We all love our books, right? And let's be honest—how many new authors would we discover if it weren't for the tireless efforts of countless book bloggers?
These heroes of the industry share news, covers, release day specials and more, all for the love of a good story. And us authors are forever grateful for the work these guys put in, usually for no pay, and little reward other than knowing that they have brought another great story to their subscribers.
So, to say thank you to the fantastic blogs who have signed up for my Release Day Blitz for Devil You Know, I have put something special together: a Q&A with my cover model, Lance Jones.
I first saw this image of Lance, shot by Michael Meadows, close to a year ago. It popped up on my newsfeed, and quite literally stopped me in my tracks. The expression, the mood, everything about it started to speaking to me ... and as a consequence Malice was born.
But, as much as we all love to look at it (I know a few of you have it as your home screen!) there is a story behind the picture—and who better to give us a glimpse into that world than the man himself?

Q: Lance, I get asked this all the time. What was on your mind when Michael snapped that shot of you?
A: Relaxing after a hard days work.

Q: Did you always find it easy to pose? Or is it something you have had to work on over time?
A: Well, it’s not too bad. Guys have it pretty easy , but def took some practice.

Q: How did you get your first modelling job?
A: Just contacted the local photographers.

Q: Christina Gragg (easily your BIGGEST fan) asks: What has been your favourite photo shoot to date, and why?
A: I’ve had so many fun shoots. That’s a hard one to answer.

Q: Mary D’Agostini asks: If you weren’t doing modelling/fitness, what would your dream job be?
A: Always thought it would be cool to be a professional football player.

Q: Now, you’ve done a few shoots, including those for the Ominous clothing line, which include tattooed women as well. Jennifer Gonnerman Wenstad asks: Are you okay with women having ink?
A: Of course I’m okay with women having ink!

Q: I guess that last question kind of leads into one from Jeanne Adkins: What is your ideal woman?
A: I like a woman that is smart, humble, nice, honest, with a good personality, and not afraid to get her hands dirty ;)

Q: I have to ask, what is the weirdest proposition you’ve had from a complete stranger since you started modelling? Or even before?
A: No comment lol

Q: Lance, your tattoos are unique, and even if a photo is only of a portion of you, we all know who it is! Darcy Lankford asks: When you get more ink, where will it be, and of what?
A: I plan on getting more – gonna do a rib piece, a back piece, some more on my chest and legs. Not sure what’s next, I’m in the process of deciding.

Q: How old were you when you got your first piece, and what was it?
A: Fifteen – last name on left shoulder.

Q: We all saw how proud you were of your Mach 1 when you got to take it home. (Hubby would give you a thumbs up for owning a Ford ;) ). Just for my girl Christina, because I know she loves her cars, how fast have you had it? We won’t tell …
A: lol 120

Q: Over the last year, you’ve definitely made waves in the industry. The one thing everybody who meets you has to say is what a genuine, friendly guy you are. What do you have to say to people looking to start a career like yours? What would be your number one tip?
A: Stay humble, hard working and focused, and don’t give up. Create a page, and build yourself a portfolio.

Q: Amy Burgett asks: What are your top plans for 2015?
A: To help create more amazing book covers, and looing forward to all my upcoming signings.

Q: Where do you see yourself in ten years?
A: Ha, who knows?

Q: Is there anyone you’d like to give a shout out to?
A: All the authors, fans and friends who have supported me through my modelling career. You know who you are ;)

I hope you guys enjoyed this little session with Lance! Thank you, Lance, for taking the time to answer these for me. I can’t wait to get a print copy of Devil You Know in my hands, and there’ll definitely be one coming your way to add to the collection! Not long now until Devil You Know releases on February 2nd.

In the mean time, here is a sneak-peak just for you!

Subject To Copyright

Being alone, while not alone, is such a curious thing. How can one who is surrounded by many, still feel the hollow ache of a person who has nobody to confide in, nobody to trust.
Nobody to love.
Human beings in general are a companion-based animal. We long, and yearn for that soul mate since the day we were born. It’s only that we don’t fully understand the emotion until puberty has taken hold, and love is no longer what we feel for a cherished toy, but rather a self-inflicted torture we endure in the name of connecting with somebody who makes us feel magical.
A week of madness, an hour of pain, all for a few simple minutes of ecstasy.
So many of us would give that—sell our soul to the devil—and never look back. The euphoria we get from a simple touch, a look, a whispered word can undo the greatest of heartache. Usually heartache we endure in the pursuit of such a fabled moment.
It’s only when the heartache follows the treasured moment that we begin to question this whole ‘love’ thing. Only then will endless hours be lost standing in the shower, questioning everything we thought we knew. The devil on our shoulder starts the guessing game, and we delve too far into every decision we make. Should I? Would I? Could I?
A form of insanity takes hold, and we lose ourselves to the madness before we recognize the signs. By the time we realize what a muddled mess our head is in, it’s too late; we crossed the road, and took a wrong turn long ago.
The cycle begins.
A whispered word, a gentle touch, a stolen glance, and we’re brought from the brink of self-destruction, back to that cloudless sky with nothing but sunshine on the horizon. We live in that euphoric state, gladly burying the pain of not so long ago, to bask in the warmth of love once again.
All until that trust is shaken.
Until the feeling is no longer reciprocated.
Until all we see in that once faithful companion, is a stranger.
Or in my case … the enemy.

Cover Reveal & Excerpt ~ CRAVING TALON: 69 Bottles by Zoey Derrick

Check out the cover of CRAVING TALON: 69 Bottles by Author Zoey Derrick! Don't miss the excerpt below!

Title: Craving Talon: 69 Bottles
Author: Zoey Derrick
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Erotic Romance
Cover Designer: Parajunkie
Amazon : Kobo : iTunes : ARe


Rock hard once again with Zoey Derrick’s sizzling hot rock & roll series!

The story picks up as 69 Bottles continues their tour, riding a surge of success thanks to an impromptu duet between Talon and Addison.

It’s a crazy turn of life for Addison Beltrand, who’s always lived to work and worked to live. Now, everything is shifted upside down—and that’s not a bad thing. Stepping on the 69 Bottles tour bus has banished the heartache of her past, and feels like a rocking new beginning.

Talon Carver and Kyle Black couldn’t agree more. The band’s lead singer and manager are falling hard for the beautiful rock chick, and will do anything to keep her in their bed—and between their bodies—forever.

The trio’s blissful bubble is popped by a danger nobody has anticipated. The band’s security team, always watchful for fan attacks on the members, isn’t prepared for what happens to Addison during this leg of the tour. Will Kyle and Talon be able to help save Addison? Or will her fear force her to pack her bags and return to LA?

Everything hinges on her decision…

Two men. One woman. A rock band. A tour bus. One Wild Ride…

****Content Warning****

Sexy, naked, bisexual rock stars…and a lot more…
This book contains, but is not limited to the following sexual content – reader discretion is advised - hot sex between two men and one woman. M/M/F, M/F/M, M/F, F/M and M/M sexual content. There are no boundaries when these three crash together, as long as you’re over 18 years of age.


Excerpt #1:

The guys are so sweet. Laying with me, touching me, but it is not sexual in any way. It’s almost as if they need to be touching me in order to survive, to breathe. I get little kisses on my shoulders and along my neck. But it is so sweet, I’m incapable of finding sexual pleasure in it. Besides, I think it would take an army to get me going again.

They stay like that for some time, before Kyle groans, “We need to get packed up.”

I groan too. “Alright, let’s do this.” I start to sit up.

“Oh no, we got this,” Talon says. “You rest, angel.”

I plop back on the pillow. “I’m not going to argue.”

They both laugh and kiss me on my cheeks and set about getting us packed up and I doze off.

“Baby girl?”

“Go away,” I mumble.

Kyle laughs. “I would, but we need to get some clothes on you. Can you sit up?”

“No,” I pout.

“Come on, panda. We just need to throw a t-shirt, your jammie pants and your flip flops on.”

“You’re so cute,” I tell him.

He laughs again and helps me sit up. He has a t-shirt ready for me to slip my arms into. He helps me because it is impossible for me to keep my eyes open. He slips the shirt over my head and I fall back to the bed.

Kyle is laughing the entire time. “You wear me out,” I grumble.

He chuckles louder and I hear Talon join in. “You wear us out, angel.”


The next thing I know my feet are being moved around and I feel my soft flannel pajama bottoms being pulled up. “Lift those sexy hips, baby girl.” I do as Kyle asks and he slides them up. “Now it’s time to go,” he says as he slips my flip-flops on. “Can you walk or do I need to carry you?”

My eyes fly open and he laughs. “No, I can walk.”

Excerpt #2:
Empty Chamber is already on stage, playing their last concert with us. After tonight we pick up a new band for our opening act. Like EC, I’ve never heard of them, but I’m assuming they’re good or they wouldn’t be joining us.

Talon turns to me. “I need to go talk with the guys. You’ll be in your spot, right?”

“Ugh, I still have to kiss them all?” I tease.

“Yes, you do. Besides, I doubt they’d let you slip away that easily.”

I laugh and Talon takes off. I turn to Kyle. “What can I do to help?”

He chuckles. “Go be their good luck charm, I got it.” He leans down to kiss me on the forehead and I grab his neck, pulling him to my lips.

“So not fair,” he murmurs against my lips. I tease him with my tongue. He shaved up his scruffiness and is back to having his very well trimmed chin beard and goatee. It’s fucking sexy as hell and I want to lick his jaw, but he pulls away. “Later,” he moans in disappointment and I smile wide.

The grin doesn’t leave my lips as I walk to take my place along the stage, waiting patiently for my guys.

Seven years ago, my life changed forever. One accident and the person I saw in the mirror no longer resembled the woman I used to be. I was lost and confused inside my own body. I felt alone and disconnected from the world, carrying the incredible weight of guilt and loss that wasn't even mine to harbor.

Then fate led me to Leo James. He taught me that crazy could be perfectly normal and it shouldn't hurt to breathe. Don't get me wrong. Leo isn't perfect. He has his own cross to bear, and the truth is, that might be why I fell for him in the first place. But despite everything he does for me, learning to forgive myself is infinitely harder than overlooking the flaws of another.

Now, the secrets and lies of our past have begun to dictate our future—threatening to ruin us before we get the chance to try. Perhaps we were cursed from the start. Or maybe, just maybe, the remnants of our fractured lives will fit together to form one whole, where love isn’t questioned and being happy is…well, easy.

Can a second broken soul be enough to fill the voids of my own? Or will such scarred pasts prove too much for our love alone to overcome?
