Reaper’s Promise by Kiki Leach

Colette: I woke up in Vegas married to my ex-boyfriend’s hot as hell biker brother. Not that I’m exactly complaining considering I’ve practically been in love with him since forever, but… Record scratch. Wait a second. I bet you’re wondering how the hell a kindergarten teacher got here, right? Well join the (biker) club, because so am I!

Roman: She woke up next to me in Vegas with a diamond cuff around her ankle and a matching ring on her finger, and is wondering how the hell she got here. I didn’t have the heart to tell her that she only said yes to my proposal because she thought I was my inept kid brother. I didn’t have the guts to tell her that I’ve wanted to know the taste of her skin and the feel of her legs wrapped around my waist from the moment she was first introduced to me as his girlfriend nine years ago. But I DO have the b*lls to tell her that since she’s now officially been made mine, there’s no way in f*ck that I’m letting her go.

Author Bio:
Dreaming of stories was my passion growing up and after raising two beautiful children, owing my own Day Care for twenty years, and being a foster mom, I'm now living my dream. I write about people who are taking the exciting, breathtaking, and sometimes dangerous journey to find true love or at least stumble upon true love in the process of running for their lives. I love action movies and romance so why no combine the two things I love into tales, that I hope, make reader's heart beat faster and take them away from their day to day drudgery. I live in Atlanta Georgia with my husband and huge family.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The story of Alex and David rattled around in my brain for quite a long time. I sat down after having my son and wrote madly for a month or two, then put it away because life just kept intruding. After years and years of life doing it's thing and my two children were all grown up, I got back to what was my dream and wrote On The Run. I'm glad I gave a voice to Alex and David after all this time.

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:
Palessa started reading her first romance novel, at the age of 11. Then she got introduced to V.C. Andrews, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Anne Rice and many more notable contemporary authors as well as some of the classics, A Tale of Two Cities, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Great Gatsby and others. It was during her teenage years that she dabbled in writing. First, it was in her diaries, then she started creating characters, stories about romance, the supernatural and much more.
It would take almost 20 years, a radical move from the city she grew up in, Miami, FL back to her Caribbean birthplace, and a chance Facebook meeting with Sable Hunter to start the fiction juices flowing again. After some fits and starts, the Baxter Family Saga was born. Unchained Hearts is Palessa’s first published fiction book with Beau Coup Publishing. Book 2: Portrait of Gray was released April 2014 and Book 3: Story of Us was released in August 2014.
She considers herself just a storyteller who sees no reason to shy away from the juicier romantic elements. She currently lives in the mountains of Jamaica with her crazy, cracker-munching-mutt Ivy and a farm, primarily managed by agribusiness partner, also known as Dad.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I hadn’t written anything fiction since I was a teenager. I read and enjoyed Sable Hunter’s cowboy romance and reading that stirred up a story idea I had been having. The thing is I thought it was two ideas. So I decided to give the fiction writing thing a shot again after 20 years. I wrote the first part about Cass and Lila pretty quickly and that was when I knew this was going to be different. It took me a while but I wrote the first draft. The second part was a challenge but I worked through it. I submitted part 1 to the publisher when I edited it enough to be decent, and the question I got was, “where’s the rest?”
This story was not like I had thought it would be. I was being pulled by the characters and following their lead. It felt good and I knew this was my calling. I’m working on a fourth book and have quite a few more stories in the pipeline including the wrap-up of the Baxter Saga which will be out next year some time. So Unchained Hearts was my first published fiction book and I’m glad readers have been enjoying the series.

Wicked Surrender by Ambrielle Kirk
Kris is tired of spending her nights playing with hard plastic and silicone. She enters the den in search of a man who will indulge her intimate desires only for one night.

Mel Blue is the risque pen name for Melissa Blue. Her writing career started on a typewriter one month after her son was born.

Outside of writing, Blue works as a mail clerk for the federal government, has a paralegal certificate (that she has more use for as a dust pan) and is a mother of two rambunctious children. She lives in California where the wine is good and, despite popular belief, is not always sunny.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My writer friends (Holley Trent, Ambrielle Kirk and LV Lewis) and I were talking and a plot bunny hopped into the conversation. Before we knew it we decided to write a connected series set in New Orleans, surrounding Beaudelaire Hotel that turns into a “Den of Sin” every once and a while.

This particular short came about between Holley Trent and I. We wanted to give folks a free sneak peek into our world. So we did a word duel. I thought it would be fun to have a couple who knew each other way back, had crossed that friends-only boundary and had disastrous results.

So are scars…

Stock car racing champion, Shane Davis had it all-money, fast cars and even faster women until a fiery crash changed everything in a flaming instant.

But when he needed a woman in his life to play a pretend girlfriend for a few short weeks, he selected the one he felt would suit his needs with no strings attached: Angela Neil.

The first time Angela came face to face with Shane, she was taken aback by his scars but more so by his sizzling magnetism. The way he looked at her, with a searing heat made her simmer in secret places. This was supposed to be all about business, but Shane made it clear early on that he wanted much, much more. Angela was a smart woman and wasn’t about to let her hormones rule her common sense. But temptation called Shane Davis was a dangerous thing to resist…

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Some people were curious why I wrote about “Shane” a man burned and scarred on one side of his body. The story in a way is mine. Two years ago I was severely burned in a bad cooking accident. A friend asked me to hold a jar while he poured hot bacon grease from a cast iron skillet into it. We didn’t realize how hot the grease was and when he tilted the skillet the grease bubbled up and over, completely coating my right hand and wrist. When I looked down, my hand and wrist were charred. For a long time people couldn’t help freaking out when they saw my hand and I couldn’t blame them. I was very lucky and blessed that my hand eventually healed so I could use it again. Shane’s scars however never healed so this is how I came up with his story. I hope you like it!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired to write this story while passing by a cemetery and observing a young handsome man standing at a gravesite holding the hand of a five-year-old little girl. I wondered if it was his wife and what his life with her had been like. I wanted to tell his past story and follow him into the future as he struggled to put his life back together again. The character of Precious, his daughter, was inspired by my then five-year-old daughter.
