About A Tourist’s Guide to Murder

A Tourist’s Guide to Murder (Mystery Bookshop) Cozy Mystery 6th in Series Publisher: Kensington (January 26, 2021) Paperback: 256 pages ISBN-10: 1496728955 ISBN-13: 978-1496728951] Digital ASIN: B087YRY1S4

While visiting the land of Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes, bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Samantha Washington finds herself on a tragical mystery tour . . .

 

Sam joins Nana Jo and her Shady Acres Retirement Village friends Irma, Dorothy, and Ruby Mae on a weeklong trip to London, England, to experience the Peabody Mystery Lovers Tour. The chance to see the sights and walk the streets that inspired Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle is a dream come true for Sam—and a perfect way to celebrate her new publishing contract as a mystery author.

 

But between visits to Jack the Ripper’s Whitechapel district and 221B Baker Street, Major Horace Peabody is found dead, supposedly of natural causes. Despite his employer’s unfortunate demise, the tour guide insists on keeping calm and carrying on—until another tourist on their trip also dies under mysterious circumstances. Now it’s up to Sam and the Shady Acres ladies to mix and mingle among their fellow mystery lovers, find a motive, and turn up a murderer . . .

Zealot by C. Vonzale Lewis

Zealot
C. Vonzale Lewis
(Blood and Sacrifice Chronicles, #2)
Published by: Parliament House
Publication date: November 16th 2021
Genres: Adult, Fantasy

Nicole Fontane thought her demons were buried deep enough.

She was wrong.

A month ago, she and her crew barely escaped an evil cult of magick users and the blood oath they orchestrated—leaving their island vulnerable to further attack.

The Better Day Church is the one place to start ridding Tulare of the evil that plagues it, but the moment Nicole sets foot inside, memories resurface of an ancient religion deeply buried in the Louisiana bayou…along with an eerily familiar altar.

Now she’s forced to relive betrayal, the fight that almost cost her her life, and her demons making themselves known once more.

Her choices are limited: Either she uses her rare form of earth magick to appease the Young family and create a new god…or end up on the altar again.

If she can’t vanquish the demons from her past once and for all, her fate is not the only one on the line.

Author Bio:

Carla Vonzale Lewis likes her martini’s shaken…never stirred. Though she was born in Georgia, please don’t mistake her for a Georgia peach. She’s more like a prickly pear. Speaking of being born, someone asked her recently if she remembered her birth, and all she had to say was, “Yes, I do remember that handsy doctor pulling me out into the cold. Right Bastard!!!”

Despite being born in the South, she grew up in the North. California to be exact. And every once in a great while, she gets to experience all four seasons. But mostly, it’s just heat.

Her debut novel, LINEAGE, was released July 16, 2019 and she fully intends to ride that joy for the rest of her life.

When she’s not concocting her next contemporary fantasy story, she enjoys reading, binge watching shows on Netflix, and trying to convince her husband that getting a dog is a wonderful idea.

EXCERPT

My breath catches in my throat at the sight of the smile on his lips, and my heart begins to race—either in anticipation or dread. I’m uncertain which one, but this man… he excites me. 
“So, this is how you want to do this?” he asks, studying me as he inches closer. 
This? What is this? 
I hold up one hand, silently begging him to stop. “Do what? I think you should leave.” 
“I don’t want to manhandle you, darling, but I will.” 
“Listen,” I begin, trying to stall. There must be a way to reason with him. There’s nowhere for me to run. 
He chuckles, tucking a strand of hair behind his ear. “Fight me, baby.” It’s the only warning I receive. 
He lunges. I jump, but he’s too fast, and I have nowhere left to go. The flimsy lock on the bathroom door would not detain him. Before I can scream, his lips cover mine, and I’m flat on my back on the bed. 
He conquers. 
He consumes. 
He makes me want. 
His weight crushes me. I jerk my head to the side, panting greedily. I can’t give in to him. “Stop,” I heave, sucking in a big gulp of air, since I’m pinned beneath his hulking frame. My hands are caught in one of his. He holds me easily enough, his knee wedged between my thighs. I don’t want to hurt him, but if he persists…. 
My breasts rise and fall against his chest. Instead of being scared, I’m repulsed by how turned on I actually am. His free hand cups my face, forcing me to look at him. I can’t hide. The heat in his eyes singes me alive. There’s no escaping him, and I fight against the urge to rub my body against his. He feels so good. 
He drags his fingers down my cheek and then rubs his thumb against his forefinger. Next, he touches my mouth, brushing that same thumb along my lower lip. What is he doing? I don’t have too much time to think about it though. Those caresses of his have my stomach tightening with need. I’m losing my focus. 
His fingers trace the arches of my eyebrows. The expression on his face is so out of place with who I imagine him to be. He’s surprisingly tender, and I’m floored by this discovery. He might actually be capable of more than his hard exterior suggests. He’s intent in his explorations, gentle and not missing even the smallest detail of my face. The entire time, his eyes remain locked on mine. All of a sudden, he pauses and then shows me his fingertips, but I don’t understand. 
“See this,” he murmurs, and I nod, even though I’m uncertain what he means, because there’s nothing there. His husky voice has me longing to squeeze my eyes shut, to deny how much this man makes me feel, but closing my eyes will not help me forget the weight of his body pressing into mine. Instead, I hold his stare, unable to look away. I should be screaming, fighting him, demanding for my release, but for some unexplainable reason, I don’t do a damn thing. “No artifice. All fucking natural. None of that shit for you, baby, not that you need it.” 
Is he talking about makeup? My eyes widen when his tongue darts out to glide along his lower lip. My cheeks heat at the sight, but this is not the first time I’ve seen his tongue. Between us, the air crackles heavily with promise. 
“Now you listen to me. You and I, we’re going to happen.” Before I can protest, he’s continues. “There’s no use in denying it. Why do you fight what we both know you want?” He rocks his hips into the cradle of mine, and even though I bite down on my lower lip, a shameful moan escapes my mouth, proving his point. 
“Will you get off me?” I growl. I’m so frustrated, achy, confused, and needy, and it’s all because of him.

Ride by Heather Guimond

banner_kbwRide

Heather Guimond’s Ride is a fast-paced, emotionally charged, sexy contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg’s Driven World.

Synopsis

RideMy brother’s rival rode away with my heart…

Kenni

From the moment I laid eyes on Finn Hawkins I knew he could be all kinds of fun… and all kinds of trouble.

Which is why I vowed to stay far, far away from the brooding motocross rider.

I had enough experience with pro-riders to know that I didn’t want to go down that road again.

The last time I got involved with a racer, it left me shattered. Fixing bikes was in my blood… but repairing a broken heart wasn’t.

Finn

The skinny mechanic I barely noticed turned out to be the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen.

MacKenzie “Kenni” Michaels wasn’t just a sassy mouth with pouty lips, who loved to put me in place. She was the little sister of my new rival.

Old habits die hard and doing the right thing nearly cost me my career once–my demons never let me forget it.

But I couldn’t stop racing… and I couldn’t stay away from Kenni.

Author Bio

Heather Guimond is a Los Angeles native, a fact she’s abnormally proud of. When she’s not trying to write something that will make people laugh or rip their hearts out (or both!) she’s either reading or doing her best to crack the whip on her three home-schooled teenagers. She loves all things witty and wise-cracking, as well most varieties of smart-assery. Other favorites include French roast coffee in copious amounts and the dirtiest Dirty Martinis she can find. More than anything, she hopes she writes books that stick with the reader long after the pages have been read.

Control by Tracie Delaney



Tracie Delaney's Control is a fast-paced, angst-ridden, steamy contemporary romance written in K. Bromberg's Driven Worlds project!



Control is in his blood

Life has a way of kicking you in the nuts right when you're riding an unstoppable wave.

I know, because it happened to me.

In one split second my entire existence came crashing down. Setting up a school to teach underprivileged kids the art of motor racing was just the distraction I needed.

And it worked, until she arrived with her sea-blue eyes, her soft smile, and her determination to fix me.

My advice, sweetheart? Take your altruistic attitude and shove it. I'm broken beyond repair.

***

Life has a way of presenting the solution to an unsolvable problem when you least expect it.

Yet in my wildest dreams, I never imagined the beautiful but damaged Nico Palmer would offer the answer to all my prayers.

The way he is with my son–patient, kind, understanding–tells me he's salvageable. Somewhere deep inside his black heart there's a chink of light. All I have to do is find a way to smash through the barriers he's erected.

He's not making it easy, but I've never run from a challenge.

And I don't intend to start now.

Meet Tracie




Tracie Delaney realized she was destined to write when, at age five, she crafted little notes to her parents, each one finished with "The End."

Tracie loves to write steamy contemporary romance books that center around hot men, strong women, and then watch with glee as they battle through real life problems. Of course, there's always a perfect Happy Ever After ending (eventually).

When she isn't writing or sitting around with her head stuck in a book, she can often be found watching The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones or any tennis match involving Roger Federer. Coffee is a regular savior.

BLURB:

A lonely social worker.
A biker behind bars.
Can their red-hot passion set them free?

What if your first love was your one true love? Eight years ago, Puck broke Ava’s heart. She picked up the pieces, patched them together, and kept going. Yet she never forgot him. When Puck sauntered through her office door at work, she was shocked to find a brawny, tatted-up biker dressed in an orange jumpsuit with the word INMATE stamped on the back. 

What if you rediscovered the passion you carelessly threw away in your youth? For Puck, the only good thing about his trip to the jailhouse social worker’s office was finding Ava again. All grown up, she looked luscious, and he bet she tasted even better. 

Breaking up seemed like the right thing to do at the time, but no other woman could replace Ava. Fate brought them together again and Puck wouldn’t make the same mistake twice. Ava was his property and he’d bring her to heel—no matter what it took. If that included blackmail, so be it. A biker never won by playing fair. 

But what happens in jail doesn’t always stay in jail, and dark forces conspire to divert destiny and tear these lovers apart. Will their love survive a second trial?

Looking for a steamy ride with a splash of power exchange? Look no further and get it now with one click!

About Monique

Growing up in New York City, I used to walk the hot pavements in the melting heat of the long summers, and dream. Uptown to downtown, eastside to the westside, and underground to catch a subway racing out into the boroughs.

During my wanderings, my magic pencil spun out fantasies full of romance, with first meetings, heartbreaks, and reunions. Sometimes my boy crush (unrequited, of course) starred as the hero.

I grew up, and after a stint in art school, became a lawyer ‘cuz a woman’s got to make a living. I came from parents who fled to France as refugees, and as an attorney, I dedicated my work to helping survivors of trauma and persecution.

I believe in them. In their grit, in their determination to hold on, to pull through and, somehow, someway, to keep themselves intact, body and soul.
Perhaps that is why I am drawn to writing stories of men and women who live through heart-rending pain, desperate yearnings and, ultimately, reach a place of redemption.

For a long time, I fought the urge to veer off the expected, safe path until I couldn’t go on unless I took a chance and made a change. I began to write, stopped, and began again. Finally, I gave in and here I am.

Come join me on my journey…
