BLURB:
Archer’s black heart bleeds for no one…

Archer hates love stories. Give him loud music, obscure art, and horror movies, and he’ll be content. Although completely normal on the surface, Archer’s arrogance and prickly demeanor doesn’t make him many friends. Not that he gives a flying f*ck because relationships are for the weak.

Clint’s life is one big puzzle. On the cusp of his fifteenth wedding anniversary, he wonders why the hell he got hitched. He married someone he thought he’d fall in love with, but nothing sparked. Considering Clint was fastly approaching retirement from the police force, perhaps that didn’t matter.

Office holiday parties aren’t fun, but when a special guest catches Clint’s eye, things get interesting. Clint never intended to fall in lust with the artist, but the want outweighs the consequences, putting his good standing along with his marriage in jeopardy.

If only Archer cared about ruining things Clint worked so hard to build.

Portrait of a Black Heart is the prequel to Love Kills, featuring the character everyone loved to hate. A dark romance between men who use lust as the reason for their morally wrong decisions.

Warning: Violent flashbacks which include blood and death are described. Look inside for further warnings.

King of Kings by Betty Shreffler




Title: King of Kings
Series: Kings MC Romance, Book 3, Standalone
Author: Betty Shreffler
Genre: Romantic Suspense/MC Romance
Release Date: January 24, 2020



Blurb

I told myself I didn’t want her.
Didn’t need her.
But it was all lies.
I craved her touch.
Craved the way her sweet red lips took away the pain.
Yet I knew I couldn’t have her.
Not when my enemies are determined to put a bullet in my back.
They believe the way to get to me is through her.
Coming for her will be their downfall.
As the President of the Kings MC, there’s one thing I’m known for—doing whatever it takes to protect the ones I love.
I’ll fight until I have nothing left to give.
Until she and my family are safe.
I’m not preparing for battle.
I’m preparing to end the war.
My choices might be the death of me.
But if the scars on my body and heart have taught me anything, it’s that love is worth the sacrifice.

Excerpt

“What do you want, Nix? To spend the rest of your life wanting, needing but never having happiness?”
Chugging my beer, I stare up at her beautiful hazel-green eyes. Expression bold and challenging, she fuels my desire for her. In the tight, dark red skirt, her creamy thighs taunt me, antagonizing me even more than her words.
“Happiness is a luxury I can’t have. Because of who I am, anyone I care for gets hurt.”
Straddling my legs, she sits on my lap. My hand goes to her @ss, cupping her against me.
“I’m not asking you to love me. I’m offering to satisfy our needs. I’m a big girl. I don’t need you to protect my heart.”
Gaze matching hers, my wall breaks down, diminishing into a pile of rubbish. I want this woman—want to feel her clench around me as I f–k her hard and hear her beg for me to make her come—but I know if I do, I’d be setting myself up for disaster.
“Don’t think, Nix. Just live.”
Soft lips demand me to give in. Tongue slipping between my lips, I taste her, and at that moment, I lose all self-control. A thud sounds as my beer drops to the floor. I don’t care if it’s pouring all over the place, I need her lips on mine. Fingers tucked under her skirt, I raise the fabric, revealing the part of her my c*ck aches to be inside of. Rising to my feet, I drop her legs and spin her. Hand on her back, I bend her over and tug her lacy thong down her thighs.

The NFL’s hottest quarterback sets his sights on me, he’s the one guy I can’t have.

Hudson Baldwin is a player—in every sense of the term.
The god of the gridiron has no lack of women throwing themselves at him.
Football players have always been on my no-go list.
Just because I have to cheer for him doesn’t mean I want anything to do with his advances.
Yet, here he is…telling me he wants me.
He wants us.
I’m not here to score with the NFL star player.
But the more time I spend with the king of the turf, the more hits my defenses take.
Can the connection between us be real?

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

The Art of Holding by Beth Ann Burgoon is LIVE! #OneClick today!

BLURB Life happens, whether you’re ready or not. All you can do is hold on and go along for the ride.   That’s the motto Hadley Jones lives by, and for good reason. Most of the women in her family have repeated the same pattern. Single motherhood. Working two jobs just to scrape by. For Hadley, wanting more is not an option. Which is why her friendship with Sam Constable was doomed before it even began. He was sweet, popular, and destined for great things outside their small town. But when he risked one kiss, and told her he loved her, Hadley refused to believe they could ever stand a chance. Hurt and angry, Sam moved to his father’s place in Los Angeles, leaving Hadley alone. Now, a year has passed. Sam is back and more determined than ever to convince Hadley they’re meant to be. But Hadley can’t forget how Sam deserted her. And when Sam learns of the mistake she made while he was gone, she’ll have to decide whether to let him go again, or finally take a stand and fight for the future—and the boy—she wants with all her heart.
