RELEASE BLITZ PACKET – Paper Dolls by Hanna Peach

Title: Paper Dolls
Author: Hanna Peach
Genre: New Adult Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 24, 2016

My life comes down to this. Two faces. One choice.

Salem is my twin sister. She loved me. She protected me. She forgave me, even after I failed her. I just got her back after searching for three long, lonely years.

Then there’s Clay. Sweet yet intense and nursing a dark past of his own, he’s all the redemption I don’t deserve. He wants to open me up and know the insides of my soul. I want to let him, but I’m scared he’ll run from what he finds.

But I can’t have them both.

My name is Aria. And today, I must choose. One of the two people I love has to die.

In moments like these, everything slowed. Salem always joked that it was life’s way of making sure you didn’t miss the turning points, the important bits. As if gravity sank heavier and heavier with the weight of the moment until the world was too heavy to turn and everyone held their breath.
It certainly felt like that now. My next action, my next word, would change all of our lives.
“Aria,” Clay’s deep voice reached my ears. “Whatever happens…I love you.” The usual assuredness and authority was gone. Instead, strain and hurt had crumpled up and shoved into his throat. Choose me. Save me. Love me.
Before him my life had felt like a stack of old movies; frames missing or out of order, muted crackling sound, flickering and shuttering away, unloved and unseen in an old unused cinema.
Then I found him. Or he found me.
He created a warm shield around me where I could be safe. He coaxed away all my layers and shed all my masks and his love soaked right into my skin, right into the very soul of me. He pulled out the fossil buried inside that had been my heart and breathed life into me.
How could I give up the man I loved? The one who loved me with a fierce and unwavering passion, the man who made me feel like I could defeat demons as long as he was by my side.
Winking in the threads of sunlight piercing through the solemn gray clouds, seed fluff twirled about me like swirling, dancing couples. Spinning around like Salem and I used to do in our backyard, hands clasped together tightly, turning round and round, eyes to the sky, our twin voices giggling and floating into the air like dandelions.
She had been my shield before Clay.
“I’m nothing without you, Aria,” Salem’s voice trembled, desperation leaking into the breaths between her words. Choose me. Need me. Love me.
How could I end her? I just got her back. For so long we shared almost everything, and she protected me. Her whole life had been about protecting me. Because she loved me that much.
How could I turn against her, toss her away like an old broken toy?
But I had to choose.
I could see us now, the three of us making a chain like when I was a kid, folding pieces of colored paper into rectangles, cutting out an arm, a leg, and half a head, and unfurling my new patterns in the light to reveal a line of paper dolls. Clay, Salem and I − we were all just paper dolls in a paper chain, me in the middle, each end pulling tighter and tighter until something had to tear.
Even now as I stare between Clay and Salem, trying to digest our impossible situation, Hope is still there, that terrible pixie, fluttering on my shoulder, whispering.
Maybe it doesn’t have to end this way?
Fuck you, Hope. Here’s the truth.
Nobody is coming.
No one will save us.
And someone isn’t going to make it out of this forest today.
“Choose,” my sister screamed. “It’s either him or me.”
My fingers tightened around my gun in a reflex. This was it. I either ended her. Or destroyed Clay.
I squeezed my eyelids shut for a moment, just for a moment of peace. Just for an instant I could shut out the inevitable, and in this blessed darkness I believed I could conceive a way that both could exist in my life. A way that I could choose Salem and Clay.
You can’t have both.
You tried.
Choose now.
But how?
What do you do when someone puts a gun to your head? Clay’s words came back to me, echoing as loud in my mind as if he had just spoken them. You refuse to bend. You push back. You find another way. You take that gun off him and put it back in his face. But you do not give in.
Find another way…
I knew what I had to do. A kind of peace settled on my skin, as delicate as gossamer, as light as silk.
I opened my eyes to a world of bright light until my vision adjusted. The torn and pained faces of the two people I loved came into focus. The only two people I’ve shared air with while we slept, the same two people I’d crawl into Hell to be with, and the only two people I would die for. I forced the ghost of a smile forward.
And turned the gun on myself.

BLOG TOUR for BORN TO SIN by AL Simpson.

Born To Sin
by AL Simpson
 Blog Tour
New Adult
Contemporary Romance

I was born to an alcoholic mother and alcoholic, drug dealing
father. Not a good start to life for a young boy. I was born to sin.
I’ve lied, cheated, assaulted, been an adulterer and stolen. It’s
how one survives the ‘hood’. I have a reputation for being the ‘bad boy’, the
fuck ’em and leave ’em type. I have never spent the night with a woman and I
have never brought a woman home. We ‘play’ at her place and as soon as I’m done,
I leave.
After fleeing my home at the age of thirteen and living on the
streets – an option I found better than being with my parents, my life is
turned around by an elderly lady.
I educate myself, become an award winning chef and return to the
‘hood where I rent an apartment. I love and care about no-one and nothing
except my Harley Motorcycle. It’s here I met Jonesy and he takes my life in a
whole new direction. Along with Wade, a fellow chef and the only person I can
trust, the pair teach me how to love. Not only myself, but others.
I’m a wealthy Restaurateur thanks to an inheritance I received
when my father passed.
I live in a penthouse apartment in the ‘rich’ part of the city.
Being pampered and spoiled all my life has turned me into a woman
who sees something she wants and, like a dog with a bone, I won’t let go until
it’s mine. I’m a winner. I ALWAYS win.
I don’t have relationships with men. One night stands suit me just
fine. I can’t trust it’s me they want and not my money.
I meet Hamish by chance when I’m on the hunt for a new Head Chef.
He treats me like I’m not worth a second thought. I’ve never been treated this
way and I decide at that moment, I will make Hamish mine.
Hamish has no interest in the pampered Blossom but for some reason
she gets under his skin.
Then, something happens that makes him realize, he has fallen in
love. Will it be too late? Will tragedy strike before he can hold her in his
arms and confess his true feelings?

that was good.” Caroline sighs as I pull out of her and roll over. “Can we go
out? Will you stay the night?” “Nope. Gotta work.” I slide off the bed and pad
to the bathroom across the hall. It’s as bad as the rest of Caroline’s
apartment. Broken and cracked tiles, years of filth discoloring the grout, the
bathtub so stained I wouldn’t even think to lower my ass onto the grime.
Peeling paint like the other rooms, torn vinyl on the floors. Not unlike my
place two blocks away. Well, I at least keep my place clean. Most of the
apartment blocks in the ’hood are run down, squalid hovels. The apartments
haven’t seen maintenance in years because, unless you live in the ’hood, you
don’t come here. Crimes are committed every hour, screaming, gun shots, rats in
the filth ridden streets. It’s all a common sight to us natives of the area. It’s
why I want to get out of here. Why I’m desperate to live somewhere decent with
decent people. I’ve tried to rent in an area closer to work. A nice ‘burb close
to the city. The realtors take one look at my references, note where I’ve been
living and tell me the place is taken. It doesn’t matter that I clean up nice
before I go and see them. It doesn’t matter that I’ve managed to get myself an
education and have been working as a chef at a prestigious city restaurant.
Nope, once a ’hood boy, always a ’hood boy as far as they’re concerned. It is
impossible to rid myself of the stigma. Once I would have worn it as a badge of
honor, now I want something better. I dispose of the condom and return to the
bedroom. Caroline is stretched out on the bed like a contented cat. Fuck, she’s
got a gorgeous body. “Why won’t you stay? Even when you don’t have to work, you
won’t stay.” I hate the whining that has been happening lately. “Babe, I’ve
told you. I don’t stay anywhere except my own bed in my own apartment. Alone.”
She leans up on her elbow. “We’ve been going out for almost a month and all
you’ve done is text me and order me to meet you here so you can make love to
me.” I raise my hands in front of my still naked body. My dick is now flaccid,
soft. Totally turned off with her whining. “How long have you lived in this
neighborhood?” I watch her frown while she wonders why I’ve asked a question I
already know the answer to. “Nine years.” “You know my reputation?” She lowers
her eyes. “Yes.” “And?” “You fuck ’em and leave ’em.” “So, why do you ask if
I’m staying the night?”

Beautiful Distraction J.C. REED

From New York Times Bestselling Author, J.C. Reed, comes a new standalone novel.

Kellan Boyd always gets what he wants—except that one infuriating city girl who bumped into his new chick magnet sports car, dared to call him a jerk, and basically threw his pity check in his face.

Fast forward three months later.
When Ava Cross suddenly knocks on his door in the middle of a storm, soaking wet and in dire need of help, he’s determined to settle old scores and finally get her between the sheets where she belongs.

Ava knows Kellan is a complex man with a dark past and a wild reputation he can’t deny. Forced to stay, Ava begins a desperate search for the truth about the one man she wants to despise and quickly discovers that the passion she feels for him isn’t just deep…it’s dangerous to her heart.

Kellan is a beautiful distraction. When the traps of her own weakness stand in the way, Ava is faced with one choice only: peel off the layers of a man who’s a wild cowboy at heart.

Author’s note – Beautiful Distraction is a full-length standalone novel with no cliffhanger. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
