BLURB

He was the last man I should turn to. 
A forbidden taboo that no woman wanted to cross. 
Worse still, he’s no one’s idea of a white knight. 
But this pawn has no alternative. 
I’m locked in a war that’s not of my making, and I’m tied to a destiny I have no say in. 
For someone like me, Brennan O’Donnelly represents something intangible—safety. 
A single promise unlocks options I didn’t dare dream of possessing… 
A future. 
A family
He’s hard. He’s dangerous. He’s filthy. 
Yet, somehow, he’s exactly what I crave. 
Now I just need to make him see me for what I am—his Queen. 
If he’ll have me.

EXCERPT

Most women might have disliked that, but I adored it. I loved the glares he shot at male patrons in the restaurant, I loved how he moved his chair so that we were in each other’s private space. I loved the hand he clamped to my thigh, and the way he stuck close to my side as if I was precious to him. 
I loved it all. 
And I wanted more. 
I felt like a flower who’d been left to grow in a shady part of the garden, and who’d just been repotted in a sunny spot. As if, at long last, I could grow massive blooms, blossom how nature intended. 
The best part? 
This was now. 
When he barely knew me. 
What would he be like when we’d been together a while? 
I almost shivered at the thought. 
Of course, he noticed. 
“Are you cold?” 
I shook my head, watching him watch me in the mirror lining the elevator. 
“Then why the shiver?” A filthy smirk creased his lips as he turned to me. “Thinking dirty thoughts?” 
“Maybe,” I whispered, peering up at him, aware that I was encouraging him and wanting nothing more. 
Somehow, I’d triggered this caveman-like response in him and I wasn’t about to stop. 
With that in mind, I let my coat fall open, revealing the deep V of my blouse and the skirt I’d rucked up slightly so that it was short enough to raise eyebrows, never mind dicks. 
When his gaze dropped to my tits, I knew that I’d be wearing low necklines for the foreseeable future, if not forever. His nostrils flared at the sight, the bag the maître d’ handed him as we were leaving fell to the floor with a dull thunk, and he reached over, cupping one of them even as he was charging forward, tangling our legs together as he pushed me into the back wall. 
His other hand dropped down to my thigh, and his fingers, callused and rough, snagged on the silk stockings I wore, before he found gold in the form of actual flesh. 
“I didn’t realize you were wearing thigh-highs,” he rumbled, his eyes on my tits still. 
His fingers worked the lacy top of the stockings as I told him, “I’m not.” 
He froze, then his gaze drifted to mine. “You’re wearing garters?” 
My smile was wicked. “You’ll have to find out, won’t you?” 
A growl escaped him as he moved back so he could grab the hem of my skirt and drag it up to my hips. His nostrils flared again when he saw I wasn’t wearing panties, and when his gaze caught on the belt around my waist, that shaped my slim curves, and kept the silk fripperies from tumbling down, I felt the disturbance in the air—like a thunderstorm was rumbling overhead. 
He was a constant surprise, so I should have expected him not to react how I thought he would, but when he dropped to his knees and urged my thighs apart, a shocked breath escaped me even as I complied with his wishes. 
One hand went to my calf, and he encouraged me to prop my heel on his shoulder, which gave him more room as he went to work on me. His lips unerringly sought my clit, and I didn’t bother staring down at him, just watched him in the mirrors as he ate me out like he hadn’t just eaten. 
Like he was starving. 
And God, so was I. 
In barely no time at all, I went from being as dry as a bone to slick with arousal. 
I hadn’t a clue what it was about him, just knew that he could get me this hot with a glance. 
My body was accustomed to being used for sex, but I’d never been an active part of the event. My mind skipped out on things as if it was self-preservation. I was used to being fucked, but fucking in return was a treat. 
While I’d dressed with respectability in mind, I’d also picked clothes I knew would turn him on, never expecting that he’d turn the cards on me.

BLURB:

Love and magic. Danger and evil. Which will triumph?

Clueless to the true meaning of her life, Scarlet is awe-struck when she is transported to another realm on her 22nd birthday. Safe in the arms of the sorcerer she soon chooses to call Pappa, all of her secret fantasies begin to come true.

As Remo celebrated the arrival of the eleven fated women before his, he longed for the day when he would finally embrace his own droblin. At long last, this powerhouse of magic holds Scarlet close and vows to protect her with the last bit of his life force as the prophecy of The Magic of Twelve unfurls.

This final volume in The Magic of Twelve Series weaves together all the foreboding omens of the entire series to reveal the menace threatening the droblins and their sorcerers. In this ultimate battle, will the Sorcerers of Bairn vanquish their foe? What will prevail:  love or evil?

Readers Beware: The Magic of Twelve Series is intended to leave the audience enchanted and wanting more. Each of these fantastical love stories features sizzling scenes that may leave the reader as uncomfortable as the heroine’s bottom.

Release Blast

OVERACHIEVER by S.M. Shade

Release Date: January 28

It started with a summer job and a ridiculous sex dream.

If you were to ask my friends to describe me, they’d tell you I’m an ambitious person. Responsible, driven, and focused on my goals. Words like stubborn and uptight would probably get thrown in there too. I’m not sure about that, but I know who I’m not.

I’m not the woman who lets a guy derail me from my plans. Watching others make that mistake has taught me well. No serious dating. No relationship until I’m successfully settled into my career. That’s the promise I made to myself and I’m determined to keep it.

Despite being an excellent student, there’s one lesson I fear I’ve learned too late. Funny men aren’t as harmless as they seem and should be avoided at all times. They sneak in under your radar and end up under your skirt. One second you’re laughing. The next you’re hunting for your underwear on a hotel room floor. Believe me, it’s not worth it.

If only my heart would stop screaming louder than my brain, I might be able to believe that Owen falls into that category. He’s my friend, but every day we spend together in this hotel, or working on our summer job building houses for charity, the harder it gets to convince myself we shouldn’t be more.

Years of diligence, and I’m being destroyed by a goofy smile

Cover Models: Killion Group Images; Allen & Loren

Blurb:

From award-winning author E.M. Shue comes another gripping instalment of the Securities International series.

Mikayla “The Duchess” is all about casual sex and hook-ups. She doesn’t have time for commitment or love. Besides, there will never be a man to love her as strongly as she needs. She races motorcycles, jumps in front of bullets, and throws a middle finger at conformity and convention. Adrenaline helps cover the pain of her past, but it’s never enough. The walls she builds are stronger than anyone knows, until one word stops her. Mum.

Single father Wesley left his life as a Navy Seal to raise his son after his baby momma split. Now he takes jobs that bring him home at night. His sole focus is raising Blake. But then the blonde bombshell walked into his life. She’s related to royalty and races through life like it’s a motocross speedway. Until she runs, and all he can think about is being her enough.

When a man bent on her title and land partners with Sir, Mikayla learns that adrenaline can hurt, even kill. Now the very company she worked for—and the man who has the power to settle her—must protect her.

When the throttle is twisted wide open, The Duchess and Ghost will learn what is enough for them both.

Félix


She wasn’t mine to take, but I’ve never been the type of man to ever give a damn. If someone’s expecting me to ask for permission, well, they’re shit out of luck. 


I run the streets of New Orleans and if I have my way with it, I always will.


That is, until a new dog comes into town. He’s slick, cocky and arrogant as hell. Everything that leads me to believe I’ll crush him at our meeting this evening. He isn’t the first who’s tried to take what belongs to my family, and he certainly won’t be the last.


But unlike the rest of them, he brought a bargaining chip with him.


A woman by the name of Madelaine Rosseau.


Her name isn’t important to most, but to me she’s worth nearly a million dollars. 


Her father’s been avoiding me for almost a year. He owes my family quite the debt. A debt that grew out of control, but gambling debts will do that to you, especially when the odds are against you. 


He hasn’t paid us back and I doubt he will.


I’d assumed the only way we were going to get payment would be through blood, but now we have it in flesh.


Madelaine Rosseau no longer belongs to her father–she belongs to me.

Abbie Roads
(Fatal Truth #2)
Publication date: January 28th 2021
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance, Suspense, Thriller

Can love untangle a web of lies and expose the truth?

A loner with a mysterious childhood…

FBI agent Dolan Watts is no stranger to pain. From his childhood spent in foster care to his daily grind of hunting down hardened criminals, it’s been the one constant through the years. Pain carved out gut feelings he can trust and instincts able to solve cases in record time. Until now. Confronted by a malicious new enemy who revels in mind games, Dolan begins to doubt his own perceptions. Fearing he’s spiraling into insanity, he seeks help from the one woman who can shine light into the darkness consuming him.

A woman haunted by a secret…

Psychologist Daughter Dawson sabotaged her own safety the moment she accepted Dolan as a client. Still, she felt compelled to help him. Dolan’s past mirrored many of the questions about her own, making his torment achingly familiar. Despite their growing attraction, her career demands she keep an ethical distance. Yet when she makes the mistake of confiding in him, both their lives are thrust into unimaginable danger.

Nightmares come to life…

When gruesome tragedy uncovers a serial killer’s twisted agenda, Daughter and Dolan must cling to each other if they hope to survive. Can they stop the body count from rising? Or will they find their only purpose from the start was to be pawns in a reign of evil?

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

She wanted more. All of it. Hand-holding and kissing and long, lazy lovemaking. She opened her eyes and hoped he could read her feelings in them. The next two years were going to be torture, and it was all her fault.

His face was naked with longing, desire, deep affection. It was beautiful to see this powerful man baring his emotions to her. Emotions that had everything to do with her, with wanting her. It was a heady drug, one she wanted to overdose on. If she never saw him after today, she’d forever remember the way he looked at her right now, like she was his entire universe.

He slid his hand into her hair, the movement causing a rash of goose bumps to break out all over her body. “I’m sorry for breaking the rules. I take all the blame.”

She opened her mouth to ask him what rule he’d broken, just as his lips landed on hers. The world fell out from under her. She grabbed on to him to keep from falling, latching onto his shirt and yanking him closer. His arms clamped around her, holding her even tighter to him, and the raw male strength of his body against hers was a revelation. Heat radiated off him like he was her own personal sun.

And then his tongue was in her mouth—warm and tasting like a wish. The salt of her tears mingled to make this kiss the one that all other kisses would be measured by.

And then it was over and he was pulling away. She wanted to beg him to keep kissing her, and maybe the world and the two years separating them would disappear.

He looked down at her, his face ravaged by the war raging inside him, the same one inside her—the nearly overwhelming need to be together, the rules be damned.

He stared at her for an endless moment, a muscle in his jaw ticking, then turned and walked to his car.

Tears flowed as she watched him drive away. At the end of the parking lot, he stopped before pulling out onto the road. She couldn’t see inside the car, but knew he was watching her in the rearview mirror. A sob choked in her throat. If she cried any harder, he’d turn around and come back for her, but she couldn’t let him.

He drove out of the parking lot and out of her life. She turned to her car and saw the bouquet he’d given her sitting on the roof.

She mashed her face in the pretty flowers and watered them with her tears.

Author Bio:

Seven Things about Abbie Roads:
1. She loves Snicker Parfaits. Gotta start with what’s most important, right?
2. She writes dark emotional books featuring damaged characters, but always gives her hero and heroine a happy ending… after torturing them for three hundred pages.
3. By day she’s a mental health counselor known for her blunt, honest style of therapy. At night she burns up the keyboard. Well… Burn might be too strong a word. She at least sits with her hands poised over the keyboard, waiting for inspiration to strike. And when it does–the keyboard might get a little warm.
4. She can’t stand it when people drive slowly in the passing lane. Just saying. That’s major annoying. Right?
5. She loves taking pictures of things she thinks are pretty.
6. She lives in Marion, Ohio with her favorite fellow and two fur babies.
7. Being a published author is a dream come true for her.
