Bullets & Blackmail by Mish Daniels

Don’t get involved with your target.
I repeat: Don’t get involved with your target. It’s the first rule of the trade.
What’s the trade? Part of it is cleaning up and taking out the trash. I don’t mean sweeping things under the rug or scrubbing out the laundry. I clean up the mess when things have gone so badly off the rails there is no other option. I make the problems go away, no questions asked.
The other part? I find things. Lost things, stolen things or those belongings of your wealthy banker buddy that you covet but can’t afford. Anything is available for a price, pay me what I ask and its yours by whatever means necessary.
One of those things was Emma Jones. The client paid me handsomely to find her, no questions asked.
I never imagined what would happen next.
Bullets and Blackmail. Some secrets should remain hidden.

Targeted Audience: LGBT, contemporary, romantic thriller, erotic, series, adult, steamy, mystery

A Date with Fate (The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod) by Tracy Ellen

Frontcover-A-Date-with-Fate-083114Offering Free ecopy for a limited time!

Welcome to the world of Anabel Axelrod!

Hold on to your seat for the beginning of a fun ride! This is not your traditional romance wrapped up in a nice box and tied with a HEA pretty bow. A Date with Fate is the debut novel by Tracy Ellen, and the first volume in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod ongoing series. Experience action, sex, wit, romance, mystery, mayhem, friends, family, flashbacks, fantasies, much laughter, and an “OMG!” cliffhanger–all in one roller-coaster ride of a wild weekend!

Smart and sexy bookstore owner Anabel Axelrod is happily satisfied with the routine of her life. She enjoys her work, the occasional company of good friends and family, and casual dates with men that are willing to follow her ironclad rules on dating.

Not too tall, deliciously dark, and definitely not handsome, the mysterious Luke Drake is a new man in town. When they meet, Anabel realizes Luke is the same man that she saw briefly in her bookstore months ago. They had never actually spoken, but sparks flew and worlds collided when their eyes clashed across the room that day.

It soon becomes apparent Luke has set his sights on Anabel, but he is no follower of rules and control is his middle name. Falling crazy in lust and sharing her darkest desires with an experienced man like Luke was definitely not in Anabel’s plans. She loves being single and will allow no man to control her, but Luke has persuasive ideas of his own.

But Anabel’s intense desire for Luke Drake is not her only concern. The slutty wife of a friend has gone missing, an employee at her store is attacked by an abusive ex, and the man who broke her heart years ago returns to town. Anabel’s orderly life dissolves into chaos. In A Date with Fate, the question remains–will the sassy, blonde bookseller follow her own rules to stay single, or will she understand that life is never simple and a certain mesmerizing complication may be worth the risk, even if it kills her?

The next two books in The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod series, Courted by Karma and In Love by Design, are available for purchase at all major booksellers. Adieu to Destiny is available for preorder and will be released in November 2014.

*This series is meant for the entertainment of an adult, mature audience. Please do not buy/read my books if scenes containing strong sexual situations, moderate violence, and explicit language offend you.

Author Bio:
I was born in Indiana to middle-class parents, the third out of five hellions. I’ve lived in the Midwest my whole life–in a small town, on a farm, and in the big city. Currently, I make my home in the suburbs of St Paul, Minnesota with my husband, family, a naughty dog and a wicked cat. Growing up, I often used my supernatural powers to force my family members to listen to me talk and tell stories. When that tough, rowdy crowd laughed of their own free will, I knew the world would someday, somehow be my stage. Discovering my passion for writing was a gift that still leaves me breathless with delight and gratefulness. Now working on my fifth novel, my life as a self-published author has evolved into full-time career and I love every minute I spend in the worlds of my characters. Connecting with real people is fun, too. Comments, posts, emails, and reviews are always truly welcome. Follow my blog, Twitter, and Facebook to be aware of events and giveaways, volunteer opportunities, and new books released–or just stop by and say Hi!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The age-old question that’s fun to wonder about…What if? In my case, the questions I pondered were what if I’d never married young, what if I’d never had a child, what if I’d owned that used bookstore I always coveted? Since it’s impossible to truly know who we’d be or how we’d be living if our life paths had gone differently, I thought it would be fun to do it by living vicariously through a character in a book. Voila! Anabel Axelrod was born!

Reverb by J. Cafesin

ReverbSmallJames Whren is brilliant, beautiful, rich, and taken—with himself, or more precisely, his genius for creating music. Desired by many, committing to no one but his muse, on the eve of his brother’s funeral, his father inadvertently turns his life into a living nightmare, and James is left abandoned in hell with no one real to save him.

His odyssey to freedom takes him beyond the looking glass, to the reflection of friends and lovers. Humbled and alone, James escapes to the Greek island of Corfu. But instead of finding solace there, loneliness almost consumes him.

Until Elisabeth, and her son, Cameron.

Reverb is a love story, a psychological thriller paced with romantic suspense. Spun from The Magus, also about a man who learns to love someone other than himself, and way beyond 50 Shades of Gray, Reverb is told like Crime and Punishment–modern, clean, edgy verging on sharp. Like nothing you’ve read, guaranteed.

Targeted Audience: 21-55

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I love a good, fast-paced, sensual romantic thriller and wanted to write what I love.

For “Shattered Blue,” my inspiration began with the setting in the mountains of southwest New Mexico. My husband and I lived there for four months several years ago, on a crazy ranch just like Shane’s, where I wrangled peacocks, cats and emus. (I didn’t include the emus in “Shattered Blue.” I thought two peacocks were enough exotic critters!)

It took me several years to come up with characters and a plot worthy of the setting, but reader response tells me I succeeded!
