The son of the most dangerous Kingpin in Mexico.

The heir to the throne.

The man that individuals fear the most, next to my father.

According to my father those are things that I should be proud of. I should be proud of my heritage and wear it on my back with honor.

I’ll honor my heritage but I will not honor the path that is set out for me. The life that my father lives is not for me. I will do anything in my power to walk away from that life, and that apparently includes getting married in Vegas after a night of drinking.

She’s beautiful, everything that I have ever wanted, but I can’t have her. Not with the life that I live, not with the blood I have on my hands.

BLURB

I used to live in darkness and a comet soared through my night sky. So I made a wish.

Blood is my sanction.

Pain is my salvation.

Fear is what I instill.

Especially for my Comet.

The warm barrel of a gun against my head? It won’t stop me from protecting what is mine.

Even if it means spilling more blood.

My love for her has been tested and I’m furious.

Seconds has turned to minutes.

Minutes has turned to hours.

And suddenly months have gone by without a change.

Trying to make Daphne remember is getting us nowhere.

It’s time to accept our fate.

This is the new us.

Giving up isn’t an option, but moving on is, and we are doing it together.

While we figure out how to be together again, we wait for her stepfather to be sentenced.

Even if I want to be the executioner.

And while time creeps by, I don’t give up hope she’ll come back to me.

In the chaos of fighting for our lives, fighting the flames that try to take us down, there is one thing stands strong.

Us.

She’s mine.

And there are no limits to protect what’s mine.

A taste of time is nothing compared to the history we hold.

And sometimes time tells us when to let go.

But I’ll hold on tight until my death.

…And wishes do come true.

The Chaos is coming . . .

Tess:
Humans and werewolves don’t mix.
We don’t share drinks at the bar, shop at the same stores, or even live in the same part of town.
There’s no trust, just decades of superstition and haunting rumors of a dark night only spoken about in hushed whispers.
I know what everyone fears.
After all, my shop is located in the center of the city.
When people want natural and herbal remedies, they come to me.
My family has helped the people of Morningstar for generations.
I hate the shifters as much as they do.
When the handsome alpha breaks into my shop and hurls accusations, I’m determined to set him straight . . . until all hell breaks loose.

Quinn:
I’m the Alpha.
It’s my responsibility to ensure my clan is protected from the humans.
Four packs that rely on the Hogan brothers to keep their secrets and families safe.
Years of mistrust, lies, and carnage have placed a wedge between my kind and the humans.
Just when I have it all under control a new threat emerges.
It’s not just my people that are in danger.
To top it off, the need for a mate surges in my blood as the Chaos approaches.
I had it all figured out until I recognized a new and tantalizing scent and the female it belongs to:
A human with a secret, a sexy smile, and an aura that calls to me in a way I can’t seem to resist.

Whatever He Needs by Mia Kerick

Release Blitz, Excerpt & Giveaway:
Whatever He Needs
By Mia Kerick

CHOSEN FINAL COVER WHN

When both lovers have daddy issues, it gets complicated.

Heir to the McAllister Construction fortune, Liam is focused on maintaining the myth that he is exactly the son his father wants. When he falls for Dimmy, a heavily inked go-go dancer, he fears revealing the romance, certain it won’t go over well with his upper-crust family—especially his father, who seems obsessed with building a family legacy.
Dimmy’s father, Gregory, is bent on making Dimmy earn his keep by any means, no matter how unsavory. He puts his barely legal son to work dancing provocatively at the seedy bar he runs and finds Dimmy work on the side providing masseuse services—and more—to club clientele. Gregory has Dimmy twisted into believing he can do no better, and Dimmy does it all in hopes of a pat on the back from dad.

Though Liam is but a few years older, Dimmy sees him as a man who might take care of him as his callous father never has, and reluctantly lets his guard down. But Liam, though he’s falling hard and fast for Dimmy, still hides his blossoming relationship from his family. A crisis ensues when a clash between the two fathers’ business interests puts Dimmy at serious risk.

When the right side of the tracks meets the oh-so-very wrong side, will Liam set his priorities straight in time to keep Dimmy from harm, or will fear shatter their lives?
Trigger warning: Whatever He Needs includes instances of physical and emotional abuse, sexual assault, and kidnapping.

WHN Teaser 1

Excerpt:

“Ogle him all you like, Mr. Ivy League, but Dimmy’s strictly pay-for-play, and Gregory’s saving his ass for top dollar.” The bartender nods at the go-go boy I’ve been gawking at since I sat down. “How about a drink to replace some of that drool?”

I manage to drag my gaze from the sensual bar entertainment. “Huh?”

The bartender, a multiply pierced woman with a platinum-blonde afro and a smoker’s voice, rolls her eyes and grunts. “All I’m saying is, if I were in your penny loafers, I’d keep my distance.”

Plainly stated and delivered without too much drama, she’s managed to both shock me and warn me away from nosing around the sexy club dancer.

To be honest, I can’t believe I’ve sunk so low. In college we called places like this “dives.” We ridiculed the hell out of them while guzzling plenty of their tepid beer. Since graduation a couple of months ago, I haven’t spent much time hanging out in dives, but here I (less than proudly) am at All the Feels Lounge—quite aptly named, as the guys on the dance floor are literally all over each other. I’m here for a reason, even if I’m not proud of it: I’m too fucking lonely for words. I want to be with someone tonight.

But I’ve been distracted from my lusty goal by scenery…of the provocative performance variety. In particular, the barely legal go-go boy, apparently named Dimmy, who’s gyrating his unnaturally flexible body on top of a glowing lime green cube set up dead center of the dimly lit, jam-packed dance floor.

At the moment, he’s dancing—if you can call it that—to a smoky ’80s tune about the singer’s desire to be his lover’s father figure. A song with personal significance, thanks to my own daddy issues. Which my respectable, successful, and remarkably satisfied-with-his-perfect-life father has no clue about. Long story.

About the Author:

Award-winning gay romance author and mother of four, Mia Kerick, knows that a satisfying romance novel is riddled with challenges. For true love to prevail, the leading men are going to have to put in some effort. But the HEA is oh-so rewarding.

From Jane Eyre’s Mr. Rochester to Brokeback Mountain’s Ennis and Jack, Mia has a great affinity for the tortured hero in literature. Her contemporary gay romance focuses on such steamy tropes as hurt/comfort, forbidden love, and enemies/friends to lovers. She firmly believes that sometimes you have to break his heart to save him. In Kerick’s books, the course of true love truly never does run smooth.

Mia’s books have been featured in Kirkus Reviews magazine. They have won a 2019 IPPY GOLD award for Juvenile/Young Adult Fiction, a 2018 YA GOLD MOONBEAM Children’s Book Award, a YA Readers’ Favorite Award, several Gold Rainbow Awards in YA and adult categories, a Reader Views’ Book by Book Publicity Literary Award, the Jack Eadon Award for Best Book in Contemporary Drama, a YA Indie Fab Award, a First Place Royal Dragonfly Award for Cultural Diversity, a First Place Story Monsters Purple Dragonfly Award, and more. Mia cheers for each and every victory made in the name of human rights. Her only major regret: never having taken typing or computer class in school, destining her to a life consumed with two-fingered pecking and constant prayer to the Gods of Technology.

Book Description

Sarah has a secret. She’s on the run from some very nasty men. Can she find love—and herself—before her past catches up with her? Sarah has recently bought a home in Winchester Drive. As is customary for the widows on the street, she has been invited to join The Winchester Widows Sex Club. Beautiful and seductive, she is a popular new addition. But Sarah has a secret. Her name’s actually Beth, she’s in hiding—with some not-very-nice people on her tail—and she’s not even a widow. Her estranged husband Marco is an undercover FBI agent, and when he turns up on her doorstep, that can only mean one thing…danger. Beth is tired of running. She longs to make friends and find love again, which she does when she makes Paul’s acquaintance and finds herself smitten with him. Bonding over romantic TV shows and jigsaw puzzles, they fall deeply for each other. But the hitman is still out there, and Paul, a law student of a nervous disposition, is not exactly ready for a life on the run. Beth has to work out what she really wants from the men in her life, move on from her past and allow herself to finally be true to who she is. Reader advisory: This book contains scenes of violence. It is best read in order as part of the Mended Hearts series.

Excerpt

At the scent of his skin, I released the hilt of the knife that was under my pillow. He’d snuck into my bedroom first thing in the morning, stripped off and gotten under the sheets with me. The man had a death wish. Marco was a passionate man. Our marriage—short though it had been—had been a never-ending festival of love. When he hadn’t been in bed with me, he’d been by my side, never far away. In retrospect, he’d feared the worst. My background and his were such that eventually, something was going to have to give. Thus I knew his scent, intimately. It triggered a sensation of tranquility, something I didn’t experience very often while alone in my bed. Just for a second, we were home again, before it had all happened—the calm before the storm. “Beth.” “Marco.” His breath hitched as he snuggled in closer to me. “I don’t have much time.” Can’t we pretend, just for five minutes, that we are simply husband and wife? A little hot and heavy lovemaking before popping to the shops then spending the afternoon in front of the TV or gardening—or anything that doesn’t involve murderous gangs and guns? That everything was as it had been before I’d come here. “It’s seven a.m. No bad guys are going to drag us screaming from my home during the peak morning rush hour, with school buses and people leaving for work.” “I have twenty minutes tops.” Pushing my butt up against his rock-hard dick, I shimmied a little. “Twenty minutes should be enough.” The tiny moan that emanated from his lips was all I needed to know that he agreed. Despite his brutish appearance, Marco was a sensual lover—Italian. There was nothing like that fiery Latin blood to get me hot, even at this time in the morning. “Your body haunts my dreams. The thought of holding you once again is the only thing that keeps me going in this stupid life.” He explored every inch of my skin with his warm hands, entering and caressing me with his fingers. It took little action on his part to get me wet for him. Just his presence in my bed was enough to make me need him inside me. He brushed the back of my neck with his lips, his rough, unshaven skin sending a frisson down my spine. Parting my legs, he entered me, filling me entirely and reminding me of why I’d married this man. I arched against his body with my head tilted back onto his shoulder. He moved his hand to my chest, holding me tenderly as he fucked me from behind—every stroke, every movement more exciting than the last. “Il mio amore.” The accent was more Long Island than Lake Garda, but he knew what those words did to me. “More,” I whispered. He circled my hardened clit with his fingers, clasping my body to his as the rhythm of his thrusts increased. “Mia cara, ti desidero,” he growled. I gasped as the orgasm rocked me, and Marco still held me to him. Can he feel every beat of my heart, every flicker of my body? His thrusts were ferocious, animalistic, and he pounded into me as he came, obviously releasing a need that he’d had for so long. While I had moved on from our marriage, Marco had never let go of the idea that one day we would be together again. He respected the vows that I had long since chosen to ignore. There was only one woman in his life, and he intended to keep it that way. But I had had enough. “I’m not going with you.” “What?” He pulled out of me then rolled onto his back. “I have a life here, just like everywhere else. You take me somewhere, leave me to pick up the pieces, make new friends, then just when I get comfortable, you swoop back in and make me leave again.” “They will kill you.” “They were your problem, not mine.” He rolled me around to face him. “Beth, we both know that they will find you. I can’t let that happen.” Marco. Sweet Marco. A teddy bear wrapped in the body of a heavyweight boxer—big, tough and strong, filled with cotton candy. “I can handle myself. You know that. In fact, I was doing pretty well before you came along. Why are you here? What have you heard?” “Enough to know that you’re in danger.” He scratched his ear. The man had a tell. He could convince the entire criminal underworld that he was part of their gang, but I knew when he was lying at twenty paces. “You’re working for them again.” He fidgeted, looking away. “Fucking hell, Marco, why? After everything that happened.” “They sent someone here to kill you, Beth. I don’t know who. Someone here is not who they seem.” I’d met an awful lot of people recently. None of them had struck me as the contract-killer type. Then again, when I’d met Marco, he’d turned out to not be everything he’d purported to be, either. I would have noticed a cold-hearted killer, though. Won’t I? “This is just another ploy.” I got up from the bed and turned away from him. I didn’t need to look to know that he was checking out my body, probably memorizing every dimple and curve. “We made a choice, Marco. You said you would honor my decision to stop running. You were the one who wanted to give us up. You were the one who left.” “Beth, I can’t live without you. I thought I could move on, but it’s impossible.” “Then stay.” “You know that I can’t do that. It kills me, but I have to bring these guys down.” “You can’t live without me, but you can’t stay. If it’s so difficult for you to make up your mind, Marco, then you know where the door is.” I left the room. My heart broke a little bit more every time he did this. I’d conceded too many times, agreed to let go of another life and another name—sometimes even a chance at love. This time it was different. This time I was finally settling in somewhere, making friends. I wasn’t giving up any of this because of another of Marco’s stupid whims. Fight for me, Marco. Show me I mean more to you than the life you lead, the job you have to do. I went into the bathroom, shut the door and clicked the lock—then I waited for him. Kick the door down. Show me how much you love me. Tell me you’re staying. I held my hand up to the door, lowered my forehead onto the cold white wood and waited for signs of life. It juddered as he slumped against the other side. Sinking to the floor, I sat in silence…waiting. I unclicked the lock. There, now it’s even easier for you to come charging in on your white horse. Nothing. He wasn’t even going to say goodbye. We’d said it a million times before, but this time was definitive. After a while, I could no longer hear him on the other side. His heart would always beat for me, but for now, it would beat elsewhere. I lifted my hand instinctively to my mouth as I started to cry, as if to silence myself. I traced my lips. Not even a kiss. My husband had come to me for the very last time, and he hadn’t even kissed me goodbye. I lifted a loose tile and removed a large box. Marco might be gone, but I had another fight to contend with. The battle was over, but the war was not won, not by a long shot.

Book Description

  Hawk thought he had everything he wanted until Lexington Waters showed up. That’s when he discovered he needed so much more. Tech Guru Lexi Waters needs to snatch her company out of the grasp of her greedy ex-husband. The only problem is the restraining order that keeps her away from the business she built from the ground up. With no money left to her name, Lexi is forced to go back to Chicago and face the first man to ever let her down—blues legend Sugarfoot Moe Waters, her father. While she’s stuck fixing up his crappy bar, the last thing she needs to deal with is a pushy, arrogant professional hockey player—Hawthorne Maze, aka Hawk. Hopefully the gorgeous distraction won’t derail everything she has worked so hard for. From the outside looking in, Hawk’s life seems perfect. Professionally, he’s at the top of his field, and personally, he has his pick of any groupie. Orphaned by teenage parents, he only knows is that his mom is white and his dad black. Other than that, there are only two people he considers family—his childhood friend Gavin Knox and geriatric bar owner Moe. He thinks he knows everything about the famous blues artist, but the sudden appearance of his hot-ass daughter is not only unexpected but also unwanted. Contemplating retirement, Hawk needs to figure out what to do next, but fate keeps throwing the sexy egghead Lexi in his path. Reader advisory: This book contains incidents of revenge porn, racial slurs by minor characters, and scenes of blackmail and emotional abuse.

Excerpt

As Lexi Waters’ advanced coding class put the finishing touches on their latest assignment, she flew her fingers across the screen of her phone a million miles per hour. Drowning out the click clack sound from more than a dozen girls pounding away on their keyboards, she polished off her last text. “Okay, girls!” she hollered over the noise while pushing away from her desk. “We’ve got fifteen minutes left, but I wanted to say…uh—” Flashing lights drew her attention toward the window. A police cruiser turned into the community center’s parking lot. Shit! Standing up, she slid her phone into the back pocket of her jeans before she stepped in front of her students. “Girls, code has been one of the biggest joys in my life, and you guys will never know how much you truly mean to me…” Lexi took in each one of the girls’ faces, wanting to commit every detail to memory. “I’ll be taking a little time away, which means I won’t be able to teach the class.” Groans filled the room at her announcement. Lexi had been with some of these girls since their tween years. Do not cry. Do not cry. Swallowing the emerging lump in her throat, she encouraged herself to keep it together for a smidge longer. “Miss Tracy will be taking over for the foreseeable future.” Lexi steadily ignored her phone buzzing in her back pocket. “She will help you tie up the loose ends on your video game concepts, starting with the plot all the way down to character development.” “But we wanted to do it with you,” the best coder in the group whined. “Uh, don’t worry,” Lexi’s assistant Tracy groused. “I’m not standing here or anything.” Limited on time, Lexi refused to acknowledge the little feud that had been brewing between them for weeks. “Trust me. You guys are in good hands. You’re all set for the Fire Code submissions, and… Well”—she took a deep breath because goodbyes were always hard—“every single one of you is intelligent, awesome and there’s nothing you can’t and won’t do. Now make me proud!” She pounded her fist in the air with more enthusiasm than she actually felt. Chairs scraped against the tile floor, the sounds bouncing off the concrete walls as the girls unexpectedly rushed her. Lexi stumbled back from the weight of their enormous group hug. For a moment, she allowed herself to open up, and lowering her head on top of her students, she soaked up all the good feels. “Ms. Lexi.” The smallest in the class reached up and pulled something out of the messy bun piled on top of her head. “You have glass in your hair.” “Oh?” She took the chunk out of the girl’s hand. “Mirror broke.” With assistance from her soon-to-be-ex-husband’s golf club—she had smashed it into a million pieces. She was snatched out of the warm comfort of her hugs when the community center secretary waved from the small window in the door. “Okay, time to go. Take care, girls.” Determined to not get emotional, Lexi slipped away from the girls’ surprisingly strong grips. Grabbing the doorknob to open the door, she turned back to wave goodbye, leaving her home away from home. “Ms. Stewart—” “Waters,” Lexi corrected the nervous woman. She needed to distance herself from her ex-husband’s name ASAP. “The community center’s director doesn’t understand…” Flinging the piece of mirror into the janitor’s cart on her way past, Lexi tuned the woman out. Josh had always loved her hair long, but the weight of her curls had grown into a burden. Lexi couldn’t wait to change it. She had narrowed down the haircut she wanted to either a symmetrical chic or a perfect Toni Braxton à la Betty Boop pixie cut. “Ms. Stewart!” a couple of boys on the basketball court yelled. She waved at the teens, fighting off the mist in her eyes. The kids were about the only thing she wished she could take with her. “I’m sorry. What did you say?” “The officers wouldn’t tell me what they wanted to talk to you about,” she nervously babbled, “but I put them near the back door like you suggested.” “Did you get the numbers that I sent you?” As they walked through the corridors of the enormous Inglewood Center, the secretary fumbled with her phone. It took every ounce of Lexi’s patience not to snatch it from her hands. “Moe’s Blues and Jazz, Sugarfoot Moe Waters and or Simone, the manager of the club, correct?” “Yes, perfect,” Lexi told her. “And forgive me for being obtuse, but why did you send me these numbers?” “Bail money.” She walked into the administrator’s front office. Thankfully, there was an exit away from the classroom, where none of the kids could witness their mentor’s arrest. #superembarrassing. “If you would be so kind as to call them and let them know that I will need to be bailed out, that would be awesome.” “Excuse me?” “The asshole I will soon be divorced from froze all my assets.” She shrugged. “So, yeah, there’s that.” “Lexington Stewart?” Two officers waited for her. “Waters,” she corrected the cop. All she’d done was smash every breakable item in Josh’s secret hideaway. Considering it was her hard work that had paid for that crap, it technically shouldn’t have been a jail-able offense. “Lexington Waters, you have the right to remain silent.” The stocky officer who demonstrated a severe case of Napoleon complex grabbed her arm a little too harshly and handcuffed her. For a minute, it crossed her mind to feign innocence, but she was super guilty, because… Fuck Josh. That’s why!

They thought they could forget each other and move on… until a local charity auction in their hometown of Snowy Creek sets Zac up for the ultimate revenge. If he wins, Clara will be at his mercy, forced to work for him for one full week. Tantalized by the sweet taste of revenge, he eagerly ups the ante to claim his prize.

But what starts out as a week of filthy manual labor and bitter rivalry leads to a shocking revelation. Someone has been plotting for over a decade to keep Clara and Zac apart. Can the pair band together to uncover who? Or will their rift from the past continue to ruin their chance at a blissful future?

That was it. My fate was sealed.

David held up the gavel, and in just a matter of seconds, I would belong to Zac Ward for a whole week. “Twenty thousand dollars going once, going twice … sold to Zac Ward!”

If I’d have eaten lunch, it would’ve been all over the stage. That was how sick I felt. Plastering on a smile, I made my way off the stage right to my parents. My mother looked angrier than I was.

She grabbed my shoulders. “We’re going to get you out of this. I’ll pay the twenty grand myself and tell Zac to get lost.”

I shook my head. “No. I’ll get myself out of this.”

When I looked at my dad, he huffed. “I’m sorry, baby girl. We weren’t expecting twenty grand.”

“It’s okay,” I said, glancing over my shoulder. I could see Zac across the room, trying to make his way over to me. “I’m not going to give him the satisfaction of thinking he won. I just wish I knew what the hell he was up to.”

My mother grabbed my hand. “Come on, let’s go. You don’t have to talk to him. We’ll figure this all out.”

I’d waited twelve years to give Zac a piece of my mind. I couldn’t chicken out now. One way or another, I had to face him. “No,” I said, pulling my hand away. “I need to do this on my own.”

Turning on my heel, I ignored my mother’s plea and walked through the crowd with my eyes right on Zac and his on mine. The air in the room turned electric, but I wasn’t about to get burned again. The last thing I wanted was to cause a scene in the middle of the ballroom. Judging by the curious stares of everyone around, they were waiting for something to happen. Snowy Creek was a small town, and one where everyone knew everything. It was no secret that Zac and I were supposed to move away together and build a future. Some might have thought we were young and stupid, but back then, we had it all planned out. He was supposed to be my future and vice versa.

With each step I took, the people around me moved out of the way until there was a clear path to Zac. He smirked at me and it pissed me off even more. “What the hell are you doing?” I snapped, glaring at him.

He glanced around the room at everyone watching us and then back to me. “I wanted to bid on you and I won.”
