Casino Heat

Reunited Series Book 5

by Sharon C. Cooper

Genre: Romantic Suspense

When it comes to true love, never say never…

Trust doesn’t come easy for NBA superstar Hunter Graham, especially after his fiancée married his stepbrother. Vowing to be single for the rest of his life, women and gambling have become his favorite pastimes. But when Hunter learns of his stepbrother’s death, he’s forced to deal with the woman who crushed his soul. He wants nothing to do with her, but his heart won’t cooperate.

Viviana Connelly thought being blackmailed into marriage was the worst thing she could ever experience.
Wrong. Coming face-to-face with the only man she’s ever loved after betraying him is like a punishment worse than death. Hunter hates her. She might’ve made peace without him in her life, but when they are unexpectedly thrown together, their passion reignites, and the flame between them burns hotter than ever.

Hunter refuses to let vicious accusations from the media or the NBA’s claim of him having a gambling problem keep him from a second chance with the woman he loves. However, his gambling hobby might be the death of him…and Viviana, too.

Will they ever get their happy ending—or will the evil around them suffocate their love?

The Bedwetter

The Bedwetter

Journal of a Budding Psychopath

by Lee Allen Howard

Genre: Dark Psychological Thriller, Horror

Armed with electric hair trimmers and a military fighting knife, Russell accepts his dark commission.

Russell Pisarek is twenty-six years old and still wets the bed. He grew up different from other young men because his vicious mother punished him for wetting by shaving his head. When he confided this to his girlfriend Tina, she betrayed him, advertising his problem to all their high school classmates, who turned on him mercilessly. He took out his frustration by skinning neighborhood cats.

Now Russell fantasizes about finding just the right woman-so he can shave her bald. He struggles to overcome his dark tendencies, but when his sister discovers he’s wetting again, she puts him in dire straits.

During this time of stress, the mythical Piss Fairy appears in his dreams, and Russell is driven to satisfy his twisted desires with an innocent coworker, who also needs a new roommate.

When Russell’s plans go awry, the Piss Fairy commissions him for a much darker task that graduates him from shaving to scalping-and worse.

**Trigger Warning**

This novel depicts intense violence, hardcore horror, and disturbing psychological terror in the vein of such works as Jack Ketchum’s The Girl Next Door, Cormac McCarthy’s Child of God, Joyce Carol Oates’ Zombie, J. N. Williamson’s The Book of Webster’s, and Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me.

Although The Bedwetter is a fascinating in-depth character study into the mind and actions of a misogynistic and homophobic psychopath, the story events are vicious and brutal, the language coarse, and the approach to their reporting is cold and unflinching. Some scenes depict animal cruelty, which is germane to the behavior of a developing serial killer.

This book is not for the faint of heart or those easily offended by language, sex, or violence. Read at your own risk.

Praise for The Bedwetter

“Lee Allen Howard delivers a fantastic, disturbing read, with enough dark humor to lighten the load and make the journey a wild, blood-soaked joyride.” -Hamelin Bird, author of Double Vision

“Lee Allen Howard’s prose crackles with an energy that is rare and refreshing in the genre. Highly recommended for fans of truly dark fiction.” -BestThrillers.com

Why am I even here in New York City?

More importantly, I should be a chef, not a damn bartender.

Here’s the thing: I can create the most decadent desserts from scratch, but mixing cocktails is a totally different story.

So when she sauntered into the bar with her flowing red hair and asked for something strong with her heart-stopping smile, I served up my best.

I didn’t expect that one cocktail to make me question all my plans.

Then she said it would be perfect paired with cheesecake. Now I need to make her mine over dessert… and so much more.

But then I got the call I had been waiting for and now I have to make a choice.

Bitter Bartender is romantic comedy that is part of the Cocky Hero World and features characters from the Man Card series.

Release Blitz: In Chaos We Reign by Amo Jones

I wasn’t someone who needed protecting…
They were.

In Chaos We Reign, an intense and enthralling dark romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Amo Jones is now available!

I was the trick that they could never play.
She was the greatest game of all…

There was elegance that comes from being carved from the ashes of all the darkness that surrounds you in the world. You start as dust, and you end as dust. At least that’s what I always thought. Crowned Princess Mayhem all my life became old fast, and I found myself forging my iron crown with the blood of our enemies.

To The Brothers of Kiznitch, I was nothing but a little brat that always got my way. I was the sister none of them asked for, but they’d find themselves needing. He was no different. Loving Keaton Cicero was never going to be easy. There was evil within him that would never be accepted.

They thought their over-protectiveness had kept me safe all these years, but they were wrong. Everything they thought they knew, was about to burn around them. I wasn’t someone who needed protecting…

They were.

In Chaos We Reign can be read as a stand-alone, but it is recommended to read In Silence She Screams first to better understand some story points.

After years of cruelty, how do you learn to trust? To love?

Blurb

After years of cruelty, how do you learn to trust? To love?

It may be 2022, but the modern world has done nothing to protect me.

I live in the world of the British nobility, a secret society of magic, mages and vessels.

There are strict rules and customs and no freedom at all.

My name is Charlie, but to society, I’m just a vessel. A person who grows and absorbs magic within them, but cannot wield it.

As tradition dictates, on my eighteenth birthday, I was given to a mage. From that day onwards, every seven days for four long years, Earl Rathbone took my body to take my magic.

Earl Rathbone was a cruel and harsh master. But it was ‘the done thing’ and society turned a blind eye to my mistreatment.

Until the earl’s son finally intervened and whisked me away. Sending me to Archie. The Earl of Hathbury.

Archie is kind and sweet. The man loves books nearly as much as I do. He is nothing like Earl Rathbone.

Yet, giving Archie my body and my magic is daunting. But it is my duty and a necessity. As a vessel, I need a mage to regularly empty me or I could die.

To my great relief, Archie is understanding and gentle, and it’s not long before I start to fall for him. Finding my duty more of a pleasure.

Archie seems to enjoy our time together more than is proper, and I am hopeful.

But can Archie be trusted? Is he really safe? Will I ever be truly free?

Excerpt 

Sighing wistfully, I continued my meander around the grounds. I turned a corner around a tall hedge and found a swimming pool. I blinked in surprise. The old families usually considered them vulgar. Something only new money garishly indulged in.

It was quite tucked away and hidden by tall hedges. Whoever had installed it had known it was something to be embarrassed about.

It looked clean, if a bit tatty. It had obviously been here for a while. The pool was a decent size, surrounded by well-maintained grass. There were no sun loungers nor any other accouterments. I wondered if anyone still used it.

A few stray leaves floated on the surface, but the water looked clear. Calm and inviting. Sod it. I had nothing better to do. The day was warm enough that I’d soon dry off, even without a towel. I stripped down to my underwear, a pair of simple white briefs. Leaving my clothes carelessly strewn across the grass, I sat on the edge of the pool and dipped my toe in.

It was delightfully warm. A heated pool. Now, that was a pleasant surprise. Grinning, I slipped in. The water was divine. Feeling far too lazy to do laps, I merely bobbed around for a while. Then I floated on my back and closed my eyes. The feeling of weightlessness in the warm water, combined with the sun shining down and the birdsong, was wonderful. Maybe swimming could become my new hobby. I could come here every day. I’d soon get fit, I supposed. If I actually swam instead of floating around.

But this relaxation was lovely. Doing this everyday sounded far more alluring. I could call it meditation or something. Maybe do a bit of yoga at the poolside, so it didn’t feel quite so decadent.

Someone coughed, and it startled me so much I nearly drowned trying to get to my feet. Spluttering water out of my mouth and wiping it from my eyes, so I could see, I looked up.

It was Archie. Standing by the pool. Holding a folded white towel and wearing a white robe. His shapely legs were bare, and he had flip-flops on his feet. He had come to swim in his secret pool and found me in it.

I scrambled to the edge and heaved myself up. The poor man took a step backwards as I lunged out of the pool to stand before him, water streaming off of me onto the grass.

“I’m sorry!” I gasped, pushing my sodden hair out of my eyes with both my hands.

Archie just stared at me. A strange look on his face. His cheeks were heated, unsurprisingly. He was probably furious at me.

“It’s quite alright,” he said after a while, but his voice sounded strained.

“I’ll… I’ll leave you to your peace,” I stuttered and hastily scooped up my clothes that seemed to be scattered everywhere. Making it take forever to gather them. When I eventually had them all, I ran.

When I was far enough away, out of sight and hearing, I stopped, chest heaving. I dropped my clothes onto the ground so I could start dressing. As I glanced down, I saw my wet underwear was entirely see through.

Groaning, I covered my blush with my hands. Not that there was anyone to see now.

“Nice one, Charlie,” I said to myself. Just what his lordship wanted to see. I thought sarcastically. Great way to get to know your new master, invade his private pool and then flash him.

About the Author 

I love characters that are battered and broken by life, who through the course of finding love, discover they are strong.

I like to pour my dark past into my characters and hope I will be forgiven.

Despite everything, because of everything, I will always believe that love conquers all.

ORGANIZED CRIME

Five years ago, I was the DeCampo Familia’s most feared enforcer, then they killed me…

Now I’m in hiding, a dead man walking.
All I had to do was keep my head down, live a quiet, normal life.
But normal is a hard thing for a man like me.

I might just have been able to manage it, if trouble hadn’t come looking for me
In the form of a feisty barmaid.
A vixen probably half my age, with long raven hair and a backside that promised all sorts of trouble.
Hot, sweaty, all night long sorts of trouble.
I should have stayed away, but I was hooked from the moment she sashayed through the doors of the bar.
And when a few of the patrons started getting rough with her, the old me was ready to give them a lesson in manners.
However, times have changed. I wasn’t in New York anymore and getting into a bar fight with five guys for her honour wasn’t the way to this girl’s heart or into her pants.

Good thing I’m stubborn, because while her attitude might be frosty, the chemistry between us is hot and I’m not about to let her get away.
So first things first, I need to learn her name.
And just hope my past doesn’t catch up with me
and kill me first…
