Advice from a Sunflower by Jen Stevens

Title: Advice from a Sunflower
Author: Jen Stevens
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 10, 2021

“From now on, it’s just you and me—Eli and Mouse.”

Eli Wilson was never meant to end up with someone like me.

Mouse. The girl who spoke but wasn’t heard—who lived in the shadows of her family and spent most of her days being ignored by the town that shaped her.

My love for him bloomed in elementary school and I’d been forced to watch him fall in love with another girl while our friendship withered away under the weight of jealousy and lies.

But by some strange twist of fate, we were given one night together underneath the stars where I handed him my entire being, only to have him throw it away.

The next morning, I left The Hollow and vowed to never return.

I reinvented who Lyla Scott is. I built a career doing something I love and found people who accept me for who I am.

Seven years later, I’m standing in front of my childhood home with a churning in my stomach that I haven’t felt since the day I left.

When Eli finds out I’ve returned, he makes a point to show me that he’s not the same carefree boy I once knew. Life has been cruel to him over the years and he has every intention to prove that it’s my fault.

He claims he’ll destroy me, but I won’t go down without a fight.

Goodreads Review – “This book has left me with such a wonderful feeling of hope and love, though I may not have been so forgiving of Denise! Such a lovely book. 💖💖💖💖💖”
Goodreads Review – “Oh my word!! I could have finished reading this book in less time if it wasn’t for my constant need to take off my glasses to wipe my eyes.”
Goodreads Review – “I love these types of romance books – dark, angsty, small town, second chance romance, full of ‘almost’ moments and friends to lovers.”

Jen Stevens was born and raised in Michigan, where she enjoys the weather of all four seasons in a single day. After obtaining her Bachelor’s degree, she quickly realized the corporate world wasn’t for her and instead took on the daunting role as her daughter’s snack maid. Reading has been an obsession for a long as she could remember, while writing has always been an escape. Jen could quote The Office word-for-word and proudly refers to herself as a romance junkie. She could live off anything made of sugar and has recently obtained the title of Lady. Most of all, she loves connecting with readers!

The Sophomore by Monica Murphy


The Sophomore by Monica Murphy is now live!


Jackson Rivers.

My not so secret crush.

He’s popular. Gorgeous. Talented.

Also my biggest weakness.

I’ve stood by him for years. Been a friend every time he needed one, but he doesn’t see me. Not like I want him to.

Move on, my friends said. Find someone new. Someone who sees your worth. Someone who gets you. I know they’re right. I’m only a friend to him. He’s never going to see me like I see him. So I take their advice, and try to move on.

But Jackson is always right there. In my face. Running to my rescue. And when I meet someone else, Jackson isn’t having it. For some reason, he’s suddenly determined to stay in my life. Right by my side.

Now he says he wants me, but does he want an actual relationship? Or is that he can’t stand the thought of losing me to another guy?

It’s time to find out what Jackson truly wants…and I’m going to make him work for it.

For me.

Love Rises

💕🌊TEASER BLAST💕🌊 LOVE RISES by Annie Dyer is coming June 16! #1Clickhere:

The first time I saw Anya I was shirtless and holding an axe.

It was June, the weather balmy and Anya was beautiful, but that didn’t matter because I was drowning in my own grief.

Anya wasn’t meant to be my saviour.

I wasn’t meant to be hers.

A perfect summer, an idyllic island, a stream of stolen nights.

All bandaids on an open wound.

If we were going to live again, she deserved more than the fractured shards of the broken creature I’d become.

She deserved love.

Previously published as Endless Blue Seas


Annie lives in the north of England, not too far from the amazing city of Manchester. She is owned by several cats and many hens, narrowly avoiding being a mad cat woman by enslaving a very understanding husband.

The Sinners and Angels Duet, an all-new dark romance duet from Tessa James, is coming June 24th, and we have the stunning covers!

Tortured Sinner

My name is Johnny, and I dance with the devil.
At least, that’s what I tell people, so they stay as far away as possible.

I never meant to get mixed up with the wrong crowd, but if you want to win a war, you have to get your hands a little dirty.

The plan was to keep myself isolated, until an angel walks into my life that makes my dead heart start to beat again.

She’s sweet and innocent, and everything I shouldn’t want, but I can’t seem to stay away.

It’ll take everything I have to resist the magnetic pull between us, but what if Claire is the salvation I need?

Fallen Angel

I barely made it out alive, and even then, I lost the life I knew.

I was sure my plan would work. That I’d be able to disappear without a trace and leave the past behind me. But when a note appears and reminds me that I cannot run from this kind of evil, I’m forced to figure out how to end this once and for all.

Dragging Claire into this mess with me was never part of the plan, but she’s proven herself time and time again. I’m not sure I can do this without her. I’m not sure I even want to try.

A darkness lingers in both of us and threatens to take hold. I just have to stop it before it drags us down with it—her most of all.

A Never Just Friends Novel, Book 3

LEON When I’m looking for a hook up, I want three things: Big, thick, and rough. So it doesn’t make sense that I can’t get my new hire out of my head. He’s a tiny guy with big ideas … and he’s my apprentice which means he’s completely off limits. But he’s already under my skin. And for the first time with any guy, I don’t think I can hold my own against him. Physically, yes. Emotionally, no. Auggie makes me weak.

AUGGIE Growing up, I always wanted to go into the family business and follow in Dad’s footsteps. Until in my senior year of high school when he told me to find a new dream. No one would let a small, clumsy guy like me on a construction site. And after trying and failing for years, I was starting to believe him. Then LJ Constructions calls me for an interview and when I meet Leon, he becomes my new dream. He’s hot as hell, self made, and instead of putting me down, he sees what I’ve always seen in myself. But I’m not dumb enough to throw away this one chance at my dream job, not even for him. Not even if I really, really want to.

Auggie flags down the bartender as I slide into the free stool and turn my attention to the man sitting next to me. He’s all big eyes and flushed cheeks, and when he turns his overeager attention back on me, I immediately soften toward him. “You okay after today?” I find myself asking. I’d been prepared to ignore what happened, but I genuinely want to know. His stare drops to the bar top. “Yeah, just one of those things, right?” My bullshit sensors are in overload again. “Right.” “Besides, plenty more fish in the sea …” “I think that refers to dating.” “Don’t see why it can’t apply here.” Okay, he’s got me there. “True.” When the drinks arrive, he nudges mine toward me and props his chin in his hand. “Did I stain your floor?” “Nah. Nothing a little sanding won’t fix. Seriously, don’t worry about it.” He watches me for a moment. “Since I’ll probably never see you again after tonight, can I tell you something?” “Shoot.” “I’m a total screwup,” he says on a sigh. “That’s why Dad won’t hire me and why I don’t have any references. The few places who have hired me haven’t kept me around for long, and none of them are anyone I want a potential employer talking to.” “I kinda got the, ah, clumsy impression.” “What could have given you that idea?” His tone is flat, even as he looks mortified. I can’t help it—I start to laugh. “Is that how all your interviews go?” “Only the good ones.” “Poor Auggie.” For some reason, the disappointment on his face melts away. “I know, feel sorry for me.” “Nah, something tells me you’ll be okay.” “Well, you were literally my last hope, so I’ll have to be okay doing something else with my life.” “Oh yeah, like what?” “Maybe I’ll take up sculpting. And be a, umm, sculp…tist?” “I think they’re called artists.” “Are they?” I snort. “I don’t know. But you should probably figure it out before you print business cards.” “I guess it’s back to the drawing board.” I sip my drink quietly for a moment. “What do you want in a job?” “Something physical, or at least varied. My attention span is way too short for sitting at a desk all day. Preferably outdoors.” “What about … fisherman?” “Gross.” “Sports coach?” “As well as clumsy, I’m exceptionally uncoordinated. Next!” “Umm … miner? Logger?” “You’re terrible at this.” “Remind me which of us has a job.” I keep my voice kind so I don’t bring him down again. Auggie orders two shots, and I’m not about to turn down free Jäger. We both throw them back, and I watch Auggie cringe through his. “It’s no use. At this point, I should cut my losses and go into porn.” I choke on my drink because that’s the last thing I was expecting an innocent-looking guy like Auggie to say. His eyes are starting to look a bit glassy and unfocused though, so I guess the alcohol is talking. “There’s a market for everything, I suppose.” “Hey!” He gives me a little nudge. “I’ll have you know I’m quite confident in what I have.” And even if Auggie isn’t my type, I’m red-blooded enough to recognize he’s sexy as hell in a twink kinda way. “Send me your OnlyFans and I’ll show my support.” “Why?” He leans a little closer and wets his pink bottom lip. “I could give you a free show tonight.”

His Captive Bratva Princess


I wasn’t looking for Trouble. Then he found me anyway. 

I’ve played a role my entire life. The glamorous movie starlet with the “it factor” smile. The perfect little Hollywood princess saying all the right lines. 

That is, until a paparazzi crisis has me jumping onto the back of a complete stranger’s motorcycle headed who-knows-where.

But my sinfully gorgeous “hero” isn’t so heroic at all. Nikolai Antonov is one of the most brutal, vicious killers in the Russian Mob. I’m a princess on the run. He’s a hitman dodging the heat from an assassination.

And now, like it or not, I’m his—his captive. His prize. The object of his fierce, hungry gaze.

But this isn’t the movies. The dominant, volatile beast of a man should terrify me, not make me weak in the knees. I should run for the hills, not tease him. Not tempt him. Not jump into bed with him…

But all that might be the least of my worries. A rival Bratva wants him dead. My psycho ex wants me back in front of the cameras. And dark secrets from both of our pasts want to drag us into the shadows.

Once upon a time in Hollywood, a princess fell for the bad guy. And that was only the beginning…

This Bratva captive romance is a steamy non-stop thrill ride that I promise will leave you breathless and aching for more. Safe, absolutely no cheating, no cliffhanger, and a perfect happy ever after.

A reader first and foremost, Jagger Cole cut his romance writing teeth penning various fan-fiction stories years ago. After deciding to hang up his writing boots, Jagger worked in advertising pretending to be Don Draper. It worked enough to convince a woman way out of his league to marry him, though, which is a total win.

Now, Dad to two little princesses and King to a Queen, Jagger is thrilled to be back at the keyboard.

When not writing or reading romance books, he can be found woodworking, enjoying good whiskey, and grilling outside–rain or shine.
