What to Kill For by Hitomi Farrell

A single woman whose biological clock is ticking hunts for a husband in the “Land of Mr. Wrongs” also known as Los Angeles. “Fortunately,” she gets kidnapped by a Mexican mobster.

*****
Shannon is just another single woman in Los Angeles who is desperate to find “The One.” She is a pretty, decently-educated Episcopalian princess, and—it appears—there is absolutely nothing wrong with her. What appears to be wrong is that her Prince Charming is ten years overdue, and more than fashionably late in making his appearance.

Meanwhile, Shannon gets kidnapped by a Mexican mobster from one of the most notorious crime syndicates in Mexico. It is payback for her boss’s corruption and wrongdoing in secret, criminal transactions. Shannon’s hope for her release is slim since she knows her boss couldn’t care less about her life. She must escape on her own and return to her everyday agenda of searching for her future husband. She has to hurry, too, because she’s running out of time!

What will happen to Shannon’s life now?

Targeted Audience: 21-50

Queenie’s Teapot by Carolyn Steele

A post-Brexit, post-Trump romp through the world of what-if…
In a world where democracy has been declared no longer fit for purpose, a cohort of randomly selected British Republic citizens receive their call to serve in parliament. As the strangers gather to learn their tasks for the next three years, the Cabinet Support Team try to fit jobs to skills—but Queenie can’t do nuffin’. Naturally she becomes head of state. Together the new government muddles through, tackling unrest on the streets and a spot of global bioterrorism in addition to their own journeys of self-discovery.

Targeted Audience: 21 – 80

Author Bio:
Carolyn has been a psychologist, a paramedic, a proof reader, a patisseur and several other things, not all of them beginning with P. A trucker, for example. She began writing the day she decided to try and see the world…doing both just to find out if she could. When excerpts from her first travelogue were published by the Rough Guides she decided to keep on doing both. It made a change from teaching CPR to nightclub bouncers and designing wedding cakes.
Carolyn maintains that she is either multi-faceted or easily bored, depending on who is enquiring.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Queenie's Teapot is a combination of two ideas, one that's been rattling
around in my head for years and one that occurred to me in the queue to
check out of a grocery store. I've long maintained, mostly late at night
after too much to drink, that politics is self defeating in that the people
who want to run things are the last ones you should trust to do it. 'Make it
like jury service' I'd announce. 'Pick people at random, they couldn't do
any worse.' Then I watched a lovely older lady at the checkout one day,
chatting and joking with all her customers and I wondered what would happen
to her when the machines finally took over completely. So, the story is a
'what-if?' about a world where democracy has been dumped for random
selection, and our protagonist is, of course, a lovely old checkout chick
who was made redundant by a machine.

My Dirty Vacation by Grace Risata

“When you think of Las Vegas, what comes to mind? Most likely it’s fine dining, extravagant shows, and lots of gambling. Not in my world. Not when you’re surrounded by alpha males with a penchant for violence who ignore your meticulously crafted itinerary and expect you to ‘go with the flow.’ Why does nothing EVER turn out like I plan?”
Come along for the ride with ex-mafia enforcer Rocky, his germaphobe girlfriend Violet, and a few of their friends as they take a little excursion to fabulous Las Vegas. Emotions run high, loyalties are tested, and danger lurks around every corner. With new villains emerging and game changing opportunities presented, their vacation is anything but relaxing.

Targeted Audience: 21

I would first and foremost like to thank everyone for taking the time to give my stories a chance. My goal is to take you out of your world, and all the stresses that go along with everyday life, and bring you into my world of romance and fantasy. I have a special weakness for hot alpha males and the feisty heroines who love them. Above all else, I hope you got a few laughs out of my stories. I aim to incorporate as much comedy into my romance as is humanly possible.
My professional biography is as follows (I’m not sure why it’s in the third person, evidently that’s the rule): Grace Risata is very excited to share her novels with the world, and she hopes you enjoyed reading them as much as she enjoyed writing them. Grace would like to thank everyone for giving her books a chance and she welcomes all feedback. Grace is happiest when reading, eating Portillos hot dogs, and patiently waiting for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

Perdition House Part 1 An Erotic Saga by Bonnie Edwards

perditionebook-small-503x800Welcome to Perdition House: a house of sin, secrets and seduction.
Previously published under the title Midnight Confessions…
Ghost stories are not always frightening. Sometimes they’re cheeky, naughty and often erotic…

When Faye Grantham inherits Perdition House, her family’s secret shame, she expects to sell the property for millions and marry her long time fiancé.
But the spirits who still reside in the mansion have other ideas. Trapped in the bordello, the women who lived and worked there wait to tell their stories to Faye.
The “girls” don’t just hang around waiting. They control Faye’s libido, influence her decisions and drive her into the arms of two very different men.
Liam Watson wears comfort like most men wear cologne. With an interest in adventurous sex, he’s more man than he first seems.
Mark McLeod is a strong, decisive businessman who was not meant to be more than a hot one-night stand. But Mark is in no hurry to end their liaison, and hopes to continue Faye’s lessons in sensuality.
As Faye becomes enthralled with the mansion, she’s embroiled in a life-changing situation that has her re-examining her engagement, her business decisions, and her beliefs about herself.
As the spirits reveal themselves one by one, Faye learns their stories: how they came to Perdition House, why they joined the women there and some of the secrets that only a high-class bordello could hold.
But can decades-old secrets affect Faye’s life today?

Targeted Audience: 21+

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always been fascinated by ghost stories and could never understand why they were generally about evil ghosts. So, I wanted to write about ADULT mischievous spirits who mess with the living in a fun, sexy way.

What better place to set that idea than a haunted brothel inhabited by the spirits of the women who worked, lived and fell in love there?

A Kiss From Moët by Lorain O’Neil

Smash-Moët-covShe’s young. Gorgeous. Cursed.

And she’s so not going to put up with it.

Moët Arkady is a Lecora –cursed by an ancient swamp magic so that any man she kisses could end up not only possessing HER but a lifetime of fabulously good luck to boot. Not exactly helpful when returning home after years of banishment BAM! Moët’s plane crashes right into the swamp that created the curse in the first place. So when Moët must play good Samaritan to a drowning passenger, what was that? A kiss? Better not be, because he’s Moses Gentry, the indomitable Gentry in The Consortium v. Gentry Refinery, the biggest most dangerous legal war these southern Parishes have ever seen, the one that will decide whether the swamp itself lives or dies.

And she’s the new Court Monitor who has to decide the whole blasted thing.

If Moët rules for the Consortium, Moses Gentry will lose everything –like he’s gonna let that happen. But if she rules for Moses, the Consortium’s rich and powerful members could be headed to prison –and they sure don’t intend on going. Since Moët’s predecessor resolved the dilemma by ending up alligator bait, and her former high school sweetheart is now the Consortium’s lead attorney and pretty great at stealing kisses, Moët could sure use some good luck herself.

And that wily old swamp still has its magic not to mention some truly surprising plans for the intrepid little Lecora –and whoever wins (and whoever loses!) The Consortium v. Gentry Refinery.

Because when they least expect it, a bit of swamp magic could just seal this deal… with a kiss!

A Kiss From Moët is a 72,000 word humorous romance/adventure standalone novel.

Lost in Time I by Abbie Zanders

LiT_Part_I_Cover-w400Lost in Time I is a love story about travelling great lengths to find your true soul mate.

Scottish maiden Isobeille Aislinn McKenna wasn’t like the other lasses. She was curious about the world around her and wanted more than a life of servitude and obeisance. When her abusive father arranges her marriage in order to pay his debts, she prays for divine intervention.

Her prayers are answered, and Isobeille suddenly finds herself six hundred years in the future – directly in the path of a bus in the heart of one of the busiest cities on the East Coast.

Reluctant do-gooder Nick Peterson was there to tackle her out of its path, but he’s not happy about it. He’s already on the outs with his girlfriend and running very late for a date that he’s hoping will get things back on track.

Both his conscience and his protective instincts kick in in a big way when he realizes Isobeille has nowhere else to go. Nick fights the sudden and instant attraction he has for the sweet and docile Isobeille, but does he really stand a chance against Fate?

Targeted Audience: Mature readers, 21+

Author Bio:
Abbie Zanders is a wife and mother of three (including a set of identical twins), born and raised in the mountains and valleys of Northeastern Pennsylvania. She has a degree in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics. Though she has spent the last 25+ years developing financial software for healthcare-based companies, she has also held second jobs as a pub waitress, a restaurant dessert baker, a secretary, and a bread shelf stock girl.

Hobbies and interests include romance novels (all genres), 80’s hair bands and heavy metal, muscle cars, and really big dogs.

A voracious reader, she carries both a Nook and a Kindle with her at all times, as well as several mini-sized notebooks to jot down ideas when inspiration strikes. Writing is a life-long pursuit; it began somewhere in elementary school when she used to secretly draft scripts for then-popular TV shows, writing herself in as a main character, of course. Things have changed a lot since then – she now focuses on love stories for mature audiences – but her passion for writing remains the same.

She promises her readers two things: no cliffhangers, and always happily ever afters.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’m a huge fan of Highlander romances, especially the ones that include a bit of time travel, but they almost always focus on the main male characters. I got to thinking, hey, what would happen if a Scottish maiden made the trip instead? Would she come willingly? How would she perceive the world around her?

Little Red Whore Hood by Burns Well

817o45pHxlL._SL1500“Little Red Whore Hood” is a parody of “Little Red Riding Hood”. It might make you laugh, it will probably make you vomit, and it will definitely cause you to question your faith in humanity. If you’re a little bitch who throws temper tantrums when your weak grip on reality gets a good shake, or if fiction gets you flustered, then I’m afraid you’re too much of a pussy to be allowed to read this book. So please save your money, so you can go buy a dildo and fuck yourself with it. Thank you very, very much.

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:
Not much is known about this author. Rumor has it that he wrote these books shortly before losing his mind. He now resides in an institution for the criminally insane at an undisclosed location. When he’s not writing books, he spends most of his time in a straight jacket.
