Book Tour ~ Ancient Desire by N.J. Walters #Giveaway


Ancient Desire

Forgotten Brotherhood Book 5

by N.J. Walters

Genre: Paranormal Romance 

Nothing was supposed to wake half dragon, half human Lucius from his Deep Sleep. Nothing. And yet something, or rather someone has. The unexpectedly attractive human not only touched him. She kissed him. Now Lucius is awake, and more powerful than he has ever been in his 4,000 years of existence. And once he finds out who led her to his cave, he’ll deal with his 300 years of hunger...

College professor Raine Carson spent her life obsessed with myths and legends. And now she’s woken one up. Only, Lucius is nothing like anything she’s ever seen or read about in her history books. Because this man is part sexy badass and part terrifying...
monster. Yet she wants him with a hunger like nothing she’s ever felt before.

Lucius used to be part of the Forgotten Brotherhood—a ruthless group of paranormal assassins. Now he’s unsure if his former Brothers are their allies...or enemies. All he knows is that someone is hunting him, and Raine is just as tangled up in this mess as he is. And he’ll protect her—even if it means unleashing his Dragon and 
all of its power.

Each book in the Forgotten Brotherhood series is STANDALONE:
* Fury Unleashed
* Arctic Bite
* Burning Ash
* Bjorn Cursed
* Ancient Desire

Once upon a time N.J. had the idea that she would like to quit her job at the bookstore, sell everything she owned, leave her hometown, and write romance novels in a place where no one knew her. And she did. Two years later, she went back to the bookstore and her hometown and settled in for another seven years.

One day she gave notice at her job on a Friday morning. On Sunday afternoon, she received a tentative acceptance for her first romance novel and life would never be the same.

N.J. Walters is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author who has always been a voracious reader, and now she spends her days writing novels of her own. Vampires, werewolves, dragons, time-travelers, seductive handymen, and next-door neighbors with smoldering good looks--all vie for her attention. It's a tough life, but someone's got to live it.

Series: The Wilder Brothers #2
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 15, 2022


BLURB

The Wilder Brothers from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continue in this emotionally charged enemies to lovers romance.

It took two days for me to know Kendall was the one for me.

And it took two years for me to realize I had to leave in order to protect her.

When I walked away, I told myself it was for the best. But now we work together, and every time we’re in the same room, we end up fighting. If we didn’t, we’d end up naked. Or worse–spilling heartbreaking secrets.

If she knew the truth, she’d either walk away for good or convince me to take a second chance. The first thing would break me, and the second would break her. I can’t let either of those things happen…

He was the boy held captive in the basement. I was the girl who knew.

He was my friend first. My lover second. We wanted to be free, to make a life together. But that was a dream we knew would never come true.

Prisoners of my ruthless father, we could not escape the horror we were forced to endure-until I drew a weapon on the only boy who ever loved me.

EXCERPT:

“What are you thinking about?” he asks, rubbing his thumb over the top of my hand, my head lying over his shoulder.

“That I have ugly hair.”

“What?” He jerks his head back in an instant. “Who gave you that idea?” The way he stares, it’s not with anger at me, but for what I just said.

I shrug, avoiding his gaze by staring at my bare feet. After a few seconds, he snakes a hand under his pillow and retrieves something. In his palm is the notepad I once gave him.

But as I look at it, as he turns to open a page, I let out a small gasp, my stomach flipping all over again.

I can’t stop staring.

My breathing goes ragged.

I’m there on the page, in a long wispy dress, my hair caught in the wind, skipping among flowers, butterflies floating around me, like he knew that’s how he makes me feel. But that’s silly, of course, there’d be butterflies in a meadow. That’s what this is. He continues to turn, page after page, and I find more of me on every single one.

He’s been drawing me this whole time? Why?

He gazes straight at me, the crooked smile reaching the far corner of his mouth. “Your hair reminds me of the sun, and the sun is beautiful.”

My heart flutters in my chest, tears growing within my eyes. And his face, the one that barely ever smiles anymore, grins so wide for me now. “Did you just call me beautiful?” I whisper with a thread of shock, because there’s no way he said that.

He raises a shoulder with a smirk. “I may have.”

My mouth spreads into a smile of my own, those butterflies in my stomach flying higher. And my head, it falls right over his shoulder, his arm draping around my back. “I think you’re kinda beautiful too.”

With a deep sigh, his head slants over mine and we stay that way until it’s time for me to go, wishing I didn’t have to.


Author Bio:

For Lilian, a love of writing began with a love of books. From Goosebumps to romance novels with sexy men on the cover, she loved them all. It’s no surprise that at the age of eight she started writing poetry and lyrics, and hasn’t stopped writing since.

She was born in Azerbaijan, and currently resides in Long Island, N.Y. with her husband, three kids, and a dog named Gatorade. Even though she has a law degree, she isn’t practicing. When she isn’t writing or reading, Lilian is baking or cooking up a storm. And once the kids are in bed, there’s usually a glass of red in her hand. Can’t just survive on coffee alone!

A heart can only take so much.

Delilah Reily was a broken soul. The only person keeping her pushing forward is her daughter, Olive. She returned to her family home. A place that holds so many memories, some good and some bad. It was now time to mend fences while also trying to fix a beyond repairable heart.

Sebastian King, Formula One racer, was a single father. He met Delilah on the worst day of his life. A day he’d never forget. A day that left him raising a five-year-old and a newborn—it seemed things had gotten a whole lot more complicated. After a year of healing and being unable to continue with his career as a race driver, he decided it was best to be with his girls. Without any plans in place, he booked a holiday at Rose Ridge Ranch and left the following day.

Sebastian never thought he’d see Delilah again. But fate had other plans. Sometimes love needs a kickstart with a horseback ride.

Rose Ridge Ranch is a place for the broken to be mended. The special to blend in. Love to be found in the most unlikely places. The heart to find a home.

Can Sebastian and Delilah help each other overcome the things that hold them back?

One strong-willed woman set on revenge.
Four men who were her enemies… until they were more.
Get ready for Alexandria, Keane, Jax, Rafael, and Liam to bring the chaos.

My name is Alexandria Donatella McCarthy, or Andie for short. Daughter of the don of the Rossi syndicate. Abused. Neglected. Overlooked. After five years in exile, I return home to avenge my brother’s death and to take down my father, Maximillian Rossi. But things didn’t work out as I’d planned. Especially when I come face to face once again with them.

Keane Agosti, the leader and next in line to the Rossi throne. Jaxson West, my father’s enforcer with a lust for bloodshed. Rafael Ortiz, my ex-boyfriend and youngest son of the head of the Ortiz cartel. And Liam Connelly, the obsessed Irish hitman of my father’s sworn enemy, Declan Levine. Four men from my past who I thought were my enemies. Turns out, I was wrong about that, too.

My father despised and abused me.
My dead brother lied to me.
Julio Ortiz thinks he owns me.
His oldest son, Alejandro Ortiz, wants to possess and control me.
Rafael betrayed me.
And Declan Levine, the enemy of my family?
Let’s just say, secrets can only stay that way for so long.
Keane, Jax, Rafe, and Liam. Four men who I swore to take down along with my father have now become my protectors. But they can’t protect me from what’s coming. From the enemies that surround me. Things are about to get so much worse than I could’ve ever anticipated.
Let the blood flow red in the streets.
Never underestimate a savage princess.

EXCERPT

Getting more irritated because Keane continues to be his non-emotive, asshole-ish self, I say to Jax, “I want my knife back.”
Jax stops his frenetic back and forth, and finally, I get a reaction. It’s just not the one I was expecting. My demand unlocks the iron bars around him and before I can blink or utter a sound, I’m slammed into by what feels like a wrecking ball of solid muscle.
Gasping, I grab onto his wide shoulders. “Jax, what are you—”
All the air explodes out of me when he slams me down onto the glass coffee table. I only have a second to prepare myself before his lips are on mine and his tongue is forcing its way into my mouth. Anything I had wanted to say gets pushed aside as I meet Jax’s punishing kiss, moaning loudly when his fingers circle around my nape and grab my ponytail. After two days of being on an emotional roller coaster, my body comes alive, craving the touch of the killer who is currently claiming every inch of me.
