Blurb
Lost in the
shadows of a tragedy that stripped Aurora June of everything she once loved,
she’s back in the small town of Balsam Grove, North Carolina, ready to face all
she’s kept locked away for seven years. Or so she thinks.
 
As one of
the victims of a string of mysterious disappearances in the small, picturesque
Appalachian Mountain town, darkness has become her home—her safe blanket when
the world reveals its true colors. But as the walls of darkness start to move
in on her, she knows the only way to free herself from her past is to face it,
head-on. She just needs to figure out how.
 
Upon
arrival, Aurora isn’t expecting her first collision to be with the boy she left
all those years ago. The boy who betrayed her trust with no regrets. The boy
who is no longer a boy, but a man with the same stormy eyes that swept her into
his current before she ever learned to swim.
 
She’d
thought he was safe. He’d thought their path was mapped out. Turns out neither
of them was ready for the crash at the bottom of the cascade.

Excerpt
 

As I approach the edge of the winding river less than a minute’s walk from my cottage, it’s like someone has injected me with life. With a lift of my chin, I close my eyes and inhale until I’m no longer dulled and disoriented. Everything becomes clear. In Balsam Grove, I breathe the air with new lungs, feel the breeze with new skin, and see the land through new eyes.



I don’t try to navigate my way. I hike beside the river, around every curve and bend, uphill and against the current. It’s a familiar path, but my focus isn’t on the destination. Every now and then I stop to take a drink from the stream, pluck a fiery pink flower, and tune into a wild animal scampering across fallen leaves. But it’s not until I reach a steeper incline that I take a moment to assess where I’m headed.



The river has significantly increased in speed since I began walking a few minutes ago. A steeper incline forces me to distance myself from the water’s edge, onto a more manageable path through the woods. My thighs burn from the steady climb, and my throat aches from dehydration. I never planned to journey this far, but I could have at least thought to bring water.      I’m ready to turn back, find the river, and drink from it when I spot the top of a familiar red house peeking over the hill. Hummingbirds unleash in my chest as I inch forward.

 
Mere seconds later, I’m standing on flat land again, taking in the two-story home that overlooks a waterfall, an old millhouse beside it.     It’s like it came out of nowhere, but this house—it’s home to some of my best memories, my biggest dreams, and the beginning of the horrible nightmare that ended life as I knew it.
 
“Ah, that’s my girl,” a voice booms in the distance. “Bring it here, Lacey.”
 
Shit. Jaxon?
 
My eyes sweep left, to the source of the river.     Two waterfalls coming from different directions spill into one body of water where Jaxon treads.  He’s patting the water as Lacey paddles over with a stick in her mouth.
 
Jaxon takes the stick, then rubs her head before she continues paddling to the edge of the river. After she climbs out and does a full body shake to dry off, he tosses the stick to the side and turns back to the water, swimming lap after lap until I’ve lost count. Every powerful stroke reveals inches of well-cut muscle and betrays his familiarity with the water.
 
Jaxon always loved everything about the water. Diving, swimming, fishing…sex. I shiver at the memory of how well our slick bodies fit together. Of his delicate fingers stripping me of my bikini top so he could see all of me as he inched his way into my body, my heart. Of his hot mouth wrapping around my pebbled nipple just to hear my whispered cry. Of the way he watched me with hooded eyes as I came for him, my back pressed against a boulder and the plunging falls above us swallowing my cries.
 
He took everything good from me, but it was me that handed it over for the taking.
 
He’s still mesmerizing, and I can’t take my eyes off him now. With every stroke, I imagine him swimming away from me, away from our past and deeper into the rushing swell of the stream. How long has he been swimming? How far?
 
I swallow my anxiety as he finally breaks from his exercise to catch his breath. When he does, I’m as breathless as he is. 
 
I’m not sure how long I’ve been staring when he uses the slick rocks to pull himself from the water, but I’m completely captivated by the droplets coursing down his naked back and arms. He’s all strength and agility, effortlessly pulling himself to his feet. I should turn away, but I don’t. Instead, I watch as water glides from his long hair, down his narrow waist, and then over the most beautiful ass I’ve ever seen.
 
Is he…?
 
I gasp, my hand clapping over my mouth. But it’s too late. One slip of my breath is all it takes for Lacey’s snout to jerk in my direction and sound off the first menacing growl.

[Release Blitz] CRUX UNTAMED by Tillie Cole

 

 

 

 

 

ONLY BOUNDLESS LOVE CAN SILENCE THE WHISPERS OF THE PAST . . .

A broken woman.
A damaged man.
A free spirit intent on saving them both.

Elysia ‘Sia’ Willis lives a solitary life. The only person in it is her big brother, Ky, vice-president of the infamous Hades Hangmen. She loves him, but she has absolutely no love for the outlaw MC he belongs to.
Raised in secret by her mother, Sia grew up separated from her brother and distant father. No one knew she even existed.

After the tragic murder of her mother, Sia spiraled into a rebellion against the rules of the Hangmen. A rebellion with dire consequences that now, years later, she still can’t escape.

As she lives once again in secret, happy on her own at her secluded ranch, a devil from her past comes calling. A devil who wants to possess her once again and take her from the simple life she never wants to lose.
And he will stop at nothing to collect what he believes is his: her.

Valan ‘Hush’ Durand and Aubin ‘Cowboy’ Breaux have finally found a home in the mother chapter of the Hangmen. The notoriously private Cajun twosome have, for now, put aside what chased them from their beloved Louisiana. But as threats toward the club build, Hush and Cowboy are given a task—protect Elysia Willis at all costs. Cowboy welcomes the job of watching over the blond-haired, blue-eyed beauty.
Hush fights against it.

Scarred by events from his past and a secret that plagues his everyday life, Hush refuses to let anyone else get close. Only Cowboy knows the real him. Until a certain sister of the club’s VP begins to slowly knock down his defenses, shattering the heavily built walls that guard his damaged soul . . . with his best friend leading the charge.

As lost and open hearts begin to meld, taking each other from indescribable pain to the never-before felt relief of peace, the newly-mended threesome must first endure one more rocky path.
Only then will they finally shake free of the shackles of their pasts.
Only then will they shed the bonds that have for too long held their happiness captive.
And there is only one way to survive that path . . . together.

 

Dark Contemporary MFM Romance. Contains scenes of violence and explicit sexual situations. Over 18’s only.

Excerpt

“I am a mad
man, Maria. And you tested my patience today,” he hissed, his face coming so
close to mine and I shivered in his hold.
My hand
came up and gripped his wrist, not to dislodge his hold from my throat but to
keep it there. His eyes flared dangerously and I knew I was playing with fire.
“I am
sorry,” I whispered.
“No. I
don’t think you are.”
Shock
coursed through my body at his words and I flinched. The tears made another
appearance. I tried to deny his claim but the look on his face stopped me.
“Stand up,”
he ordered softly. But oh, it was every bit menacing.
My body was
his, my mind was his…and I obeyed instantly. There was no hesitation. His grip
released my throat and I stood up on shaking legs in front of Master.
“You broke
my rules, Maria. The rules are there to protect you and you consciously went
against me. I can’t keep you safe like this.”
My chin
wobbled against the effort to keep my tears at bay. I was ashamed. Embarrassed.
And wanted nothing more than for Lyov to just hold me.
But he was
angry. I’d made him angry.
“You know
what happens when you break one of my rules. You are aware of the
consequences,” he continued in the same harsh, rough voice.
I nodded
silently.
“Your
words,” he demanded. Each word hit me like a harsh lash against my fragile
skin. Lyov was brutal.
“Yes. I am
aware of the consequences, Master.” Maybe…just
maybe that was why I did it.
He stared
me down, his grey eyes icy. “Good. Undress then.”
I went to
quickly do as I was told, gripping my nightgown and starting to pull it over my
head but Lyov’s voice stopped me.
“Slowly,
Maria. Undress slowly for me.”
His words
sent a shiver down my body, all the way to my toes. My thighs clenched. Lyov
sat back lazily and watched me intently. Without taking his eyes off me, he
took a bottle of scotch from the small table beside him and poured some in a
glass.
His head
was cocked to the side as he brought the glass to his lips and sipped slowly. The
darkness in his eyes didn’t disappear. It was still there and more. Intense.
Furious. Dangerous.
There was a
fiery need inside of me. My hands trembled as I brought them up to unbutton my
nightgown. My fingers fumbled with the buttons and Lyov watched me with rapt
attention, an eyebrow raised mockingly.
Finally,
when all six buttons were open, I breathed out a sigh. My hands paused and my
stomach clenched. Slowly, like Lyov wanted me to, I pushed the nightgown down
my shoulders and then my arms before it pooled at my feet.
I was left
with only my bra and panties. The cold air caressed me and goosebumps rose on
my skin. I shivered even though Lyov’s heat was penetrating into my every pore.
His gaze
was filled with danger, brutality…and need.
At the thought
of Lyov being in complete control and seeing him exude dominance with just a
mere glance, or just a simple word—it had my senses in override.

“There is something about LP’s voice that I will never get over. I love the wild ride, the twists and turns and the suspense that kept me turning the page and refusing to get up or do anything that would tear me away from this world.” – USA Today Bestselling Author Willow Winters

Anna

I am a whore. A slave. A possession. I accepted my fate long ago, but fate is not done with me yet. Freedom is so close I can almost taste it, only to have it snatched away under the guise of protection. A guilded cage is still a cage. Friend or foe? Saviour or oppressor? Rafael D’Cruze is a bad man. I hate him, so why do I feel safe with him?

Rafael

She’s a favour. Collateral. A pretty slave. I have no interest in her beyond keeping her alive for the man who now owns her. And yet…I’m fascinated by the little Russian. There is no room for weakness in my world, but it appears the delicate rose has steel petals. I’m willing to bleed for a willing touch, a trusting glance…

A broken little bird. The big bad wolf. A longing that could heal or destroy.

Hate me or hold me?

Title: Love Broken
Author: J.D. Hollyfield
Genre: RomCom/Contemporary
Release Date: February 26, 2018

 
 
 
 
 
My name is Katie Beller, but the world, as of late, knows me as Bailey Swan, the love guru behind my bestselling book.

Want the shortened version? Here it is: 

Love was stupid.

A fake. A farce

Love was broken. 

Women everywhere were eating up my advice and fighting back against fake love. My book started a relationship revolution. And I stood by my story. 

Until I met Charlie Bates.

When I throw all my own rules and advice out the window after a week-long rendezvous, I start to wonder just how real my words were. Maybe love might be just a little more complicated than I thought. 

Maybe I’m the one who’s love broken.

While I have read other books co-written by this author, this is my first book to read written all by J.D. Hollyfield. What a good story this one was!

Bailey Swan is a best seller author who has agreed to go on her first tour with book signing. Although a bartender by day, she has remained anonymous by writing under this pen name. Nervous as all get out, she heads out for her first signing.

Charlie Bates is a NHL athlete who also is a cover model traveling to book signings on off season from hitting the puck around the ice. Women flock to him at signings, offering up their bodies, smothering him with unwanted touches, anything to get recognized by this hunk of a man.

When he makes a mad dash to his hotel room to avoid the gang of groupies chasing him through the hotel, he lands at the wrong door. Begging and pleading for the person who answered to let him in to escape.

Bailey wrote the book that has changed so many women’s take on what Love is, what their relationship is all about. She has a back bone stronger than anyone and is not letting this hunk of a model sway her from believing that there is only ‘fake love’.

When these two broken souls meet, the sizzling that goes on, is hotter than bacon frying on a griddle!

But can the lies and the words spoken ever be forgotten? Or will these two be destined to be single forever?

I went in after reading my fave trope blurb,I was expecting forbidden/Tabboo sex and some desperate passion, but I was not prepared to get my heart clenched and emotions to flow through my eyes, but that is exactly what happened ! A poignant, sad/happy story hidden in a box labelled generalised trope. I read till late, couldn’t stop reading, couldn’t stop turning the pages.
; Just Kept Swimming ;

Let me start by saying I loved the story. It shoves a hand between your third and fourth rib and squeezes the organ behind and doesn’t let go !
Camellia Hale is a senior today, her Dad the swim coach and overbearing, overprotective , albeit overloving, indulgent Dad to her. She’s prepared to be a senior now, her whole life ahead of her and BAM !!💥 her life, as she knows it, is gone. Let me repeat -Its G.O.N.E !!!!
She’s struggling to get off the floor now, scared to get off of her knees and look around her, cause the earth may have shifted from under her feat, the world hasn’t stopped turning, Sun hasn’t stopped shining, her friends haven’t stopped smiling & laughing, her boyfriend hasn’t stopped holding her hand.
I should start getting on with my life. But how can I? How do I put one foot in front of the other when I’m paralyzed? It hurts to cry, so I don’t. It hurts to smile, so I don’t. It hurts to pretend, so I hide. I’m vanishing.
She’s curling into herself , folding, hiding, disappearing.
My heart broke and wept for Cam all throughout.
Let me be clear here, this book is DEFINITELY about forbidden relationship BUT IT’S SO MUCH MORE !!
Don’t pick up solely for titillation and sex. If you wanna look behind depression, the causes & effects and it’s impact on the circle of family & friends around the ” victim” PICK.UP.THIS.BOOK!
I say victim because Cam & David are victims of Love. It breaks their lives apart, I say victim because the people struggling to get through their day, their vocation, their lives didnt want for this overwhelming, mind numbing depression. They fell victim to it’s suffocating tentacles as it envelops and chokes them. #MassiveTears here !

The turn of events brings her a new compatriot. A fellow mourners and since he’s older, maturer, they drift towards each other, with a whole new set of problems.
It’s so wrong
It’s so forbidden
It’s so sacrilegious
Yet it’s so natural !
This is wrong. But when the whole world is spitting its wrongs at me, what the hell is just one more? together all those wrongs created the most exquisite right.
I think the book is being touted at wrong platforms. The Forbidden/Tabboo tag has people scrambling to read it and then getting disappointed, cause it has massive triggers. And I Get It ! But it’s also inviting 2 or 3 stars.
EK writes powerfully and with lots of Ethos and Pathos. She does make credible characters and they appeal to all your emotions.
Only one peeve, the story towards the end didn’t have enough torturous pain….it flowed smoothly towards the end and there could’ve been David’s POV too, it’d have made the story more relatable.
Just my opinion.

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

Just closed the kindle on the first book of The V Games Series, Vlad.

There are numerous characters to learn about and numerous families to get to know. Thank goodness in the beginning of the book, these two authors blessed us with a little family tree of sorts for us to go back to when all the V names are mentioned!

When you’re a Vasiliev, you don’t enter the world with potential to be great, you are great. You’re better than great. You’re the freaking best.

Vlad has grown up to carry on the Vasiliev name properly. Being the oldest of the Vasiliev children he will be taking over the family business. Being the family that runs the V Games, they also deal in drugs and human trafficking and weapon dealing. This family is sick! As long as Vlad is properly cared for, the devil stays hidden.

Vasiliev men aren’t weak.
Vasiliev men bow to no one.
Vasiliev men are kings.

Diane is the eldest child of the Volkov Family. She has been primed to take over in the family business of Volkov Spirits. Between her and her younger sister Irina, they have made Volkov Spirits what it is today. Proving to this male dominated ran family that a woman can do just as well as a man.

When Diane is promised to Vlad so that the families can become stronger, this is when the book takes an interesting turn! These families have been around each other for years, they have all grown up together. So, when one is promised to you to marry, what if it’s the wrong person? What if it’s not about love but about who is promised to who, that is how marriages are arranged. When father tells you who you will marry, will you forget about love being in your life?

It’s a story that I found was a bit confusing at times due to so many having names that start with V and all of them having last names that start with V. The story was unusual but to me didn’t really hit it out of the ball park. I was conflicted on whether this was a forbidden romance story or a vicious some sort of hyped up gladiator games story. As with all books though, each person reads the same story differently…My advice is check this one out and read it for yourself.

When these two Witches of Darkness get together, it’s explosive action and brutal massacres. I think they enable each other’s wild imaginations and feed off of each other’s dark souls. I’m not complaining, cause i get to read twisted , fucKERed up stories that quench my dark needs too, so …Win-Win !
In this book 1 of the series they create the Bratva World. The ruthless Russians are major players in the Underworld of Human Trafficking, arms smuggling , drugs and what nots.

They hold annual V-Games, which are like free for all gladiator games, I’m assuming. Bloody Fights unto Deaths which separate boys from men and winning them is a matter of prestige . survival of the fittest is the norm in this Underworld.

Heirchy is of utmost importance in this mafia. There’s First Families and second families and then everybody else. Alliances, brotherhood, marriages of convenience are used in this endless fight for supremacy. Sons are bred to lead and women are bred to be used as pawns amongst families
The First Families are Vasilievs, Votrovs and Volkovs.
Vile.
Vicious.
Villainous.
Vasiliev.
Vasiliev name outranks the Volkov one now and always.

And their Coal-hearted Prince The Mighty VLAD !
One thing though, between all this hurricane of madness, I really loved Irina and Vlad’s unusual pairing.
An angel giving a devil her wings for safekeeping.

I don’t wanna give ANY of the story away cause Kristi has this Evil side eyes when sharpening knives, I’m shit scared !
Suffice to say , it gets real bloody, real fast, real passionate real fast and then real intriguing real fast…..and then I’m left hanging !!
Hurry up and write the next ones K&K!!
My only peeve was that most of the characters were named with V and it took me a while to figure out who was who. I had to constantly go the chart to sort it out, by the time I memorized, book had finished.
It takes some time to connect with characters because it’s a strange world of Ruthless Chenghez-ian men and young Killer Ludmillas who entice & ensnare their preys and then squeeze the life out of them.
Can’t wait for book 2

Blurb
I’m a good girl.
I live by a code
that can’t be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and
pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned.
But Nikolai Kozlov
re-writes my destiny with five simple words.
You belong to me
now.
He’s Russian mafiya.
A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have
been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he
wants without a second thought.
And what he wanted
was me.
He thinks he
controls my fate, but what he doesn’t know is, sometimes it’s the good girls
you have to watch out for. 
I’m a dangerous man.
I live by a code.
The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To
destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her.
She’s a dancer. A
beautiful little doll. My prisoner, and my new favorite puppet. This mafia
princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply
collateral.
It’s a shame to
destroy precious things.
But this is what bad
men do.

Excerpt
The first thing I always notice about a person is their
posture. I was raised to believe that good posture conveys good manners, as
well as respect for those around you. Nikolai carries his posture like a casual
‘f#ck you’ to everyone around him. There is no decorum in his leather jacket,
jeans, or his haphazardly laced motorcycle boots. Everything he wears is black,
but the small glimpse of skin beneath is a riot of colors. Tattoos cover every
inch of his exposed skin, including his throat.
I’m not sure which is more offensive- the ink or the faux
hawk atop his head. This is not the way you attend a ballet, nor is he the type
of man I expect my father to keep company with.
“Tanaka.” He reaches for my hand and kisses it in a way that
few men would ever dare to do in my father’s presence. “You dance beautifully.”
The words are unmistakably accented. Russian. And I’m
struggling to maintain my composure while making sense of this situation. My
father has always been protective of me. His own men know better than to speak
to me or look at me, but for this stranger, somehow, it’s okay.
My manners, at least, are still intact, so I reply as I should. “You’ve seen me
dance?”

Nikolai flashes a boyish smile in contrast to the deepness
of his blue-green eyes. “I like to invest my time in the arts.”
