AT THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake

AT THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT

When a dangerous conspiracy threatens to tear them apart, he’ll have to choose between his country and the woman he loves… Decades ago, ambitious Zack Hayes set his sights on the White House. He’s worked his whole life to become the leader of the free world—attending the right schools, marrying the perfect bride—all to aid his campaign. He didn’t realize someone behind the scenes has been pulling the strings to manipulate Zack and the country he loves into a dangerous position—one he will risk his life to wrench free from. The one thing he can’t risk is Elizabeth Matthews. From the moment she met Zack Hayes, Liz felt the connection. Serving as his campaign manager and then his press secretary, she accepted that her love for him would remain unrequited. Still, she’d thought they were friends, so when he pushed her aside, she felt the stab in her heart. And when she realizes he’s done it to protect her, nothing will stop Liz from standing by his side—not even the men who would use her as a weapon against him. As shocking secrets are revealed, Zack and Liz find succor and passion in each other’s arms. When the ultimate villain shows his face, Zack may have to choose between his country and the woman he loves…

Beasts

Title: Beasts
Author: Ana Levley
Genre: Dystopian SciFi
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb: What if your whole life was a lie?
The future seems utopian, with telegraphic technology that connects everyone. People speak through feeling, and there is peace, or so Atlia thought. Atlia did not intend on doing anything other than becoming a leader until she was framed for her father’s telecide (murder by telegraphic). When sentenced to the farm she learns the darkest secrets her society has been hiding, even her family. Which will she choose? Each path is as dangerous as the next as she uncovers the map of lies.

I have always been a storyteller. When I was little it was through art, video, and writing that I loved to express the tales that burst forth from my head. My hands shook as I held the camera for the first time, I remember its weight. Now I can seamlessly film without shaking. My writing is where I hope to first tell the unique stories and then I hope to show them in film.
I finally at age 30 have written my first novel “Beasts” that will be published on Amazon on August 20th. I am so excited to introduce totally different worlds, animals, perspectives, and characters into your life. I hope that my writing moves people to act and see real issues differently, and that it will make people think hard about what they currently are doing. I hope it challenges people to be the heroes of their own lives, as well as others.  May we all be heroes striving to bring peace to a world that needs it so much.

I wish I could remember the light. You might not care right now about the light, but when it is taken from you, when you start to forget how it looks, that’s when you realize how important it is. If you listen, you may be able to keep this luxury. If not, you may find yourself without it forever.
  Light is a gift. The light that sways before your eyes as you rise, or even the sunrise dotting the Earth as it wakes – reflections I believe they were called. You really don’t know what light is, how much of a blessing it is until it is taken from you. Imagine. Everything dark. A desolate gaping hole of nothingness. The lack of light fills you with a feeling of emptiness. The darkness consumes you as you try as hard as you can to hold onto anything, even if they are just memories of light. Even if you close your eyes, your mind tries to trick you that it’s still there. With small bursts of blue, yellow, so faint, and the illusion of light it satisfies you just a little. If I could show you everything, it would blind you.
  So, I will start with the small pieces, the shiny pieces, shimmering with hope until you finish my story. This is the story of Atlia, the blackened, the deserter, the murderer, the martyr, the whatever you would like to call me. To me, I am just a person who has a choice to make, a decision that could change my life forever, and yours.

Racing into Love by Noah Steele

Aiden Reed is stuck in a major boy rut. Every date ends in something worse than disaster—boredom. That is, until star racer Derrek Luna crashes the end of a terrible date at Aiden’s cozy bookstore. Derrek’s confident charm and killer good looks throw Aiden’s quiet, cautious world into chaos when he says he wants a shot at Aiden’s heart. Derrek is sure Aiden is different. He’s sure Aiden won’t just vanish without a word. Not like the others did. But the closer Derrek gets to the man who charmed him without a word from across a crowded room, the more his life on the track threatens to keep them apart. Aiden is ready to take the risk—he thinks. What if Aiden’s panic attacks scare Derrek away? What if Derrek’s ghosts come back to haunt him? …what if it doesn’t matter because they’re already in love? Racing into Love is a gay instalove romantic drama ready and waiting to take you from zero to sixty with every turn of the page.

Interception: http://amzn.to/2qqnt3U
Frantically, I searched her face until I reached her wounded eyes, and my insides knotted with uncertainty. I claimed her lips with mine, fitting perfectly together. Her mouth opened, and the salty taste of her tears forced reality into the room. As much as I wanted the kiss to linger, I had to make her understand how much I wanted her, and only her. Reluctantly, I backed away.
“I’ve loved you since we were kids. I wanted it to be me instead of that dick, Mark James, on your first date. I’ve wanted you so fucking bad, but I never told you how I felt because the thought of losing you, even as a friend, terrified me.”
Her green, shock-filled eyes pooled with tears again. I did the only thing I thought would make her believe me. My hand wrapped around the back of her head, fingers weaving through her hair. I inched her closer until I felt her soft lips against mine.
The kiss started in a slow exploration. The moment my tongue met hers, her breath caught and her body shivered. My heart raced like a jackhammer when her fingers spread through my wet hair and the kiss deepened.
Damn she felt good, and tasted even better. Her lips were soft, but eager for more. Her hair felt like smooth silk beneath my hand. I wrapped my other arm around her waist and pulled her tighter against me, only it wasn’t enough. I wanted more.

Title: Ruthless River
A Men of Mercy Series Novel
Author: Lindsay Cross
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Kari March Designs
Release Date: January 29, 2019



Blurb

Laney was a woman on the run. Her ex-husband, who just happened to be a cop, had a penchant for violence and, after Laney took their daughter and ran, he had a promise for revenge. She’d made a new life with a new name and had plans to stay hidden forever, but even the best laid plans go wrong… Forced to rush her daughter to the hospital Laney’s location is revealed.

Laney had vowed to never seek help from a man again, until Riser’s 200 pounds of packed muscle made her his own personal mission. He vowed to protect her and her daughter from her ex, but could she trust him with their lives when she’d been burned so badly in the past? 

Riser Malone was an admitted adrenaline junkie whose distraction on a crucial mission last year had resulted in complete failure of his objective: protect the girl. Unable to face his failure, Riser accepted every mission put before him, but a lull in the terrorist tempo left him with too much time on his hands back home. He needed a distraction, and he needed it badly.

And that distraction showed up in the form of Laney and her daughter.

With an abusive ex bearing down on her, Riser saw his second chance at redemption. And after one night with her, Riser knew his bachelorhood was over, but if he ever had any hope for a relationship with Laney in the future, he’d have to make sure her abusive ex-husband would never harm her again.

  Four hunky dragon shifter mates can be a lot to handle. I’d always thought one guy in bed was enough. Now I have four. All the extra pleasure may be more than I bargained for…but it’s so good. On top of that, the orestaia–the fertility stone–is completely inactive. Guess who gets to figure out how to heal it? That’s right. Me. My plan of action is a bit fuzzy. Actually, really fuzzy. All I know is I’m supposed to head out to the red rocks and blue skies of Sedona to locate the infamous Dragon Oracle. And if I can’t find her? Well, then everyone gets screwed. My sister stays sick. A sleazy oil tycoon keeps breathing fire down my neck. And pretty much all dragon procreation ends. All of my hopes and dreams for a baby and a family can go straight out the window, too. See you later, dragon race. I have to heal the orestaia. All of our futures are in my hands. No big deal. Right?   Cover Design: Bruiser Designs

They're patrons of the community, the protectors of veterans and townsfolk alike, and a motley group of world military-trained men and women. And their small town and the Philadelphia area aren't afraid to call on the varied skills of this rough and ready crew to help out on a case or two.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Summer brought us blackmail.

He’s retired now and as the owner of several small businesses and the founder and President of the Fallen Eagles MC, this former Texan has his roots firmly planted. He’s ready to settle down again, and only one woman will do.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Winter is different. A bit of a loner. Quiet. Sarcastic. She’s also the owner of the one and only full-service salon in Golden Trail and has an amazingly supportive family and a close- knit group of friends who love her for the odd woman she’s molded herself into. She still feels like there’s something missing, though. As the youngest Markham, she’s seen the many struggles her older sisters have endured, and as much as the prospect scares her, she wants a love that is all her own. The problem? Nosy sisters, a murderer killing women who fit her description, and the guy she loves is a good twelve years older and way out of her league.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Eagle and Winter have a tough road ahead, but what these two are about to realize is that not even death can separate two souls who are written in the stars.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">*Full-length novel</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Trigger Warning: This book contains scenes of violence/sexual violence that may be difficult for some readers.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-16712" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Buy-Links-300×169.jpg&quot; alt="" width="300" height="169" /></p> <h3 style="text-align: center;">~ <a href="https://amzn.to/2RcAp9C&quot; target="_blank" rel="noopener">AMAZON</a> ~ <img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-16713" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Other-Books-in-Series-300×169.jpg&quot; alt="" width="300" height="169" /></h3> <h3 style="text-align: center;">//ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ss&ref=as_ss_li_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=itbibobi-20&language=en_US&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B07DHLVRLX&asins=B07DHLVRLX&linkId=48ee1689a6f45a0a17a6783e908dd695&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true <img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-16714" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Teasers-300×169.jpg&quot; alt="" width="300" height="169" /></h3> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-28421" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Written-in-the-Stars-Teaser-1- 300×200.jpg" alt="" width="530" height="353" /></h3> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-28422" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Written-in-the-Stars-Teaser-2- 300×199.jpg" alt="" width="530" height="352" /></h3> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-28423" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Written-in-the-Stars-Teaser-3- 300×199.jpg" alt="" width="530" height="352" /></h3> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-28424" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Written-in-the-Stars-1-300×168.png&quot; alt="" width="530" height="296" /></h3> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-28425" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Written-in-the-Stars-2-1- 300×196.png" alt="" width="530" height="346" /></h3> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-28426" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Written-in-the-Stars-3-300×169.png&quot; alt="" width="530" height="298" /></h3> <h3 style="text-align: center;"><img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-18624" src="https://itsybitsybookbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Youtube-300×169.jpg&quot; alt="" width="300" height="169" /></h3> <p style="text-align: center;">

Hold Me Today by Maria Luis




Title: Hold Me Today
Series: Put A Ring On It #1
Author: Maria Luis
Genre: Sexy Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 17, 2019



Blurb

Rock bottom has never felt so good.

At least, that’s what I tell myself when I bargain with the enemy and score a renovation for my hair salon. 

The enemy? Nick Stamos, my best friend’s older brother. 

He’s got a body and face the Greek gods would envy but his personality needs a major overhaul. 

He’s surly. 
A rule-follower.
Did I mention he’s seen me naked? 

I may have crushed on him for years, but the only place I want Nick swinging his hammer nowadays is at my salon. 

Except, he needs something in return. . . 

A fake girlfriend. 

And I’m just reckless enough to say yes.

Excerpt

~ Mina ~ 

A masculine hand sticks through the closing elevator doors, cutting off my train of thought as I lurch forward to jab the KEEP OPEN button. I smack it once with a heavy, don’t-fail-me-now finger, then again, my gaze flitting to the doors that are inching closed like the gates of Mordor. 

That hand balls into a fist and then a suit-encased forearm appears, followed by a long leg and a brown, leather dress shoe. The leather is so soft, so visibly supple, I wouldn’t doubt that they cost more than my mortgage. 

Gamóto.” 

At the Greek curse for “fuck”, and the more than familiar gravel-pitched voice, my back snaps straight, and I yank my gaze up. Up past the lean waist not even a suit jacket can hide. Up past the barrel chest and the bulging, I-swing-hammers-for-a-living arms. Up to a face that’s as unforgiving in its aristocratic, angular bone structure as his hair is a wild, dark mop on his head.

Only that curly hair and a pair of full, pillow-soft lips—not that I’ve ever tasted them, of course—make him seem more human than rigid statue.

Bingo.

Has there ever been more appropriate timing? I don’t think so.

She who asketh shall receive—or however the saying goes. 

For possibly the first time in six years, I smile at the man standing just inches away. 

Nick Stamos stares down at me, his pewter eyes hard and narrowed with suspicion. “Trying to amputate my arm, Ermione?” 

My smile slips, hackles twitching like a cat’s fur standing on end when stalked by a predator. Er-me-o-ne. His tongue rolls over the R in my given name, his Greek accent perfect and sultry despite the condescension dripping heavy and thick with every purred syllable. 

Don’t let him get to you

Only, he’s gotten to me for years now.

“If by amputate you mean save,” I murmur with practiced flippancy, “then sure. It’s not my fault if technology doesn’t want to work for you.” 

Those slate-gray eyes, unlike any pair I’ve ever seen, drop to where I’m still pressing the KEEP OPEN button. When his dark brows rise, taunting me with their perfect arches, I follow his lead and glance down at the illuminated button. 

CLOSE DOORS.

Oh. Oh.

Air puffs up my chest with indignancy as I inhale swiftly. “You didn’t really need that arm, did you?”

Nick snorts derisively. Without sparing me another look, his big hand circles my wrist. His touch is bold, his skin hot. A shiver of something—revulsion, I hope—rolls down my spine, unwinding and unfurling until even my gold-painted toes curl in my heels. And, as though he fears I’m completely incompetent, he angles my still-pointed finger at the button to close the doors. 

Pushes down and lingers, as though to taunt, see? This is how a contraption called an elevator works. Welcome to the twenty-first century, Ermione. 

Ermione. Even in my head I can hear him slinging around the name I inherited from my maternal grandmother, knowing that it makes my mouth pinch and my hands clench. 

My smile has, as it always does around him, completely evaporated.

The elevator pings shut. 

Locking me in with Satan’s mortal sidekick, my best friend’s older brother.
