♡ Spotlight ♡ Love Exes and Ohs (Cactus Creek #4) by Violet Duke @VioletDukeBooks @InkSlingerPR




Love, Exes, and Ohs
Cactus Creek #4
by
Violet Duke





✾ Synopsis ✾


He may very well be the perfect ex...

Isaac McKnight has had enough loss in his life to know never to take anything for granted. So when the perfectly-imperfect-woman-for-him puts an end to their relationship out of the blue, it's Isaac that makes sure they remain friends. Now a year later, whether it's at his gym or her brewpub, or the dog park they visit every weekend - though neither of them own a dog - he and Xoey are steadily getting sucked deeper into buddy-zone galaxy, with its dangerous proximity to watch-me-settle-down-with-someone-else abyss. It's a reality he's resigned himself to. That is... until one drunken confession changes everything.

But she's looking for the perfect oh...

For Xoey Montenegro, history has taught her that sometimes, it's Prince Charming who vanishes without a trace. And fairytale love? Highly overrated. Heck, give her a real and perfect 'oh' over that fantasy any day. So as far as rock-solid tequila-fueled plans for her love life go, coming up with a match-finding formula based on the qualities of the men responsible for her three most epic ohs seems brilliant. Except for the fact that one-third of her genius little man-quation is all about her friend Isaac. Actually, more than a third if Xoey were being honest with herself - which she's not. Because full honesty would require thinking not just about how perfect Isaac really is, but also about how perfect the fourth epic oh she's kept buried deep in her past once was.

An easy enough thing to keep ignoring... until her past isn't past tense anymore.

✿ Excerpt ✿


"Hey, that's a damn cute puppy. I'm adding him to my list," Isaac declared, planting a quick peck on her cheek in greeting, along with an icy cold cup in her hand.

Xoey wasn't sure which was making her shiver.

"You have over two dozen dogs on that list of yours. Unless your future wife is Mrs. Doolittle, buddy, you're going to have to start making some cuts to your future white picket fence pet," she replied in an impressively steady tone.

It had taken awhile after their break-up, but with time, Isaac's lips on her skin no longer made her punch-drunk with lust.

Not outwardly, at least.

Sipping his piping hot black coffee, he nodded over at the fancy iced mocha drink he'd brought for her — or as he liked to call it, the milk and sugar with a splash of caffeine — and gave her a smug smile as he reached for the bag of doughnuts she'd brought for their breakfast.

The man knew her frighteningly well.

It had begun as a game a while back. He'd guess what she was selecting for their little weekly breakfast picnic, and bring the drinks he knew would pair with it. In the last few months, he'd only been wrong once. And that was only because she'd purposely ordered the exact opposite of what she'd intended just to mess with him.

Of course, they'd ended up having to go out for a second breakfast that morning, but it had been worth it. She really had been craving biscuits and gravy that morning. It was freaky how he always managed to just know.

Isaac munched on a doughnut thoughtfully and watched the puppy in question flopping along next to the departing couple. "Nope, that one's too cute. He's staying on the list." With a half shrug, he concluded, "I guess that means I'll have to marry Mrs. Doolittle."

Xoey was just plain shocked at the sharp bolt of pain she felt tearing through her chest over the joke.

"Hey, you okay, sweetie?"

Isaac squeezed her knee, a worried gaze running over her face. And then lower.

To where her hand was pressed hard against her heart.

"Heartburn," she fibbed, rubbing her chest the way she saw folks on antacid commercials do it.

Instantly, her bag of bacon doughnuts were yanked off her lap. "I knew these things were bad for you. You're calling your doctor in the morning to get a check-up. Sometimes, heartburn is a symptom of something dangerous." Reaching into her pocket, he pulled out her phone and entered her password to unlock it.

She peered over and saw him googling something. "What are you doing?"

"Checking to see if these cups of liquid sugar and caffeine over ice you drink can cause heart problems." He read through the results for a minute and shook his head. "Apparently not, but better to switch to tea or just plain water to be safe."

Intense hazel eyes proceeded to x-ray every inch of her body, while gentle, utterly masculine hands that every inch of her body still remembered stroked her back.

She released a jagged breath.

Which of course, he interpreted as her final descent toward the big, bright light at the end of the tunnel.

He gripped her hand. "Do you want me to take you to urgent care or the E.R.?"

"I'm fine, Isaac. Calm down."

He did not look convinced.

Which was probably why his fingers were now sliding over to her wrist to check her pulse.

Good lord, the man was just too lovable sometimes.

"I lied, I don't have heartburn," she admitted, to stop what was clearly going to be a call to 911 in a bit.

A puzzled frown crossed his features, along with marked relief. "What's going on, Xo?"

"I just... I was holding my heart because I was jealous. Of Mrs. Doolittle." She snatched back her precious bacon doughnuts. And to make this less of a declaration of the heart, she quickly threw in, "If you go off and have a few dozen puppies with Mrs. Doolittle, who's going to come to the dog park with me every morning? I'm too old and set in my ways to break in a new weird friend who'll get me the way you do."

Silence.

Until warm, calloused fingers reached over and broke a piece of doughnut off of the one she'd been eating.

After a few quiet moments of chewing, Isaac slung his arm on the back of the bench behind her. "Can you imagine the industrial-sized pooper scooper I'd have to buy to pick up after a few dozen dogs?" He shook his head. "I think Mrs. Doolittle and I would be doomed within the first week," he lamented gravely. "Looks like you'll be stuck with me for a bit longer, babe."

Improbable promise coming from a catch like Isaac or not, Xoey held on to it tight like a security blanket.





✿ The Series ✿


Love, Chocolate, and Beer
Cactus Creek #1
by
Violet Duke





✾ Synopsis ✾


"A new must-read series from Violet Duke. Not only will you fall in love with the characters, you'll fall in love with romance." - New York Times Bestselling Author Kathleen Brooks

Cactus Creek's most romantic eligible bachelor, new-to-town and new-to-singlehood chocolatier Luke Bradford believes in old school romance, fighting wars waged over love, and deploying his dimples whenever an impossible-to-resist woman instigates it. But for once, he's trying not to platter up his heart to get stomped on. Luckily, he has a brand new hobby to keep him from falling:

...driving the addictively easy to incite beer-brewing beauty next door crazy.

Cactus Creek's feisty brewmaster and town sweetheart Dani Dobson cannot believe how well that maddeningly charming man next door with all his chocolate-covered romantic idealism - the kind her heart has been shattered by before--can push all her buttons. If she's not careful, he'll sneak right past all her defenses. Luckily, she has her go-to hobby to keep her mind off him:

...playing her own version of cupid for everyone in town but herself.

When Dani and Luke's inexplicable chemistry escalates their ensuing chocolate and beer feud into so much more, old wounds and new demons surface to bring them face-to-face with exactly what they've been protecting themselves from:

...the kind of love that can break their hearts all over again.

Love, Diamonds, and Spades
Cactus Creek #2
by
Violet Duke





✾ Synopsis ✾


"Guaranteed feel-good, swoon-worthy romance!" - New York Times Bestselling Author Erin Nicholas

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Can't Resist series, comes a fan-requested surprise addition to the USA Today bestselling Cactus Creek series.

She's the Self-Proclaimed Wicked 'Witch' of the West

Fiercely independent single mom Quinn Christiansen is used to flying solo. She's been raising her young son and figuring out how to pay his pediatric hospital bills on her own for years now. And truth is, Quinn loves the notorious reputation she's already gained in town of having a heart too hard for any man to break. Because it is. Two carats too hard, to be exact. Courtesy of the two-carat heirloom she'd had to barter to cover her ex's debts when he took off after she got pregnant. The day she'd promised herself never again.

So color her pissed when the universe goes and decides to make the one man in Cactus Creek not afraid of her natural ball-busting charm another gambling musician. A ridiculously handsome, wickedly gruff and gritty, pushy one at that.

He's Everything She's Sure She Can't Possibly Want

Rylan Grey isn't used to getting a woman so worked up... well, not in a bad way, at least. But somehow, his mere existence seems to annoy the guarded and gorgeous Quinn to no end. Surprising, really. A dirt-and-jeans landscaper by day with a regular gig to perform for a packed house by night, Rylan considers himself a decent guy. Sure, he's made some gambles to get to where he's at, but they were all of the life variety, with risks as important as the rewards, fate betting as the house, and not a single dollar in play.

While Rylan never wagers anything he's not willing to lose — namely his heart — he's more than ready to ante up once he sees past Quinn's icy defenses. Quick as a firecracker, loyal to a fault, and sweet when no one's looking, she could be his riskiest gamble yet.

Love, Tussles, and Takedowns
Cactus Creek #3
by
Violet Duke





✾ Synopsis ✾


"Heart-melting and guaranteed to make you laugh and cry before you finish the last page." - New York Times Bestselling Author Sawyer Bennett

He's a better fighter... but she has all the weapons.

After his combat injuries retire him from the military career he wasn't ready to give up, battle-scarred Hudson Reyes now spends his new life as a movie industry fight scene and weapons specialist simply doing what he knows best: surviving.

Until he meets her. The one woman who makes him want to live again.

An antique arms authenticator with a lifetime of martial arts training, Liana Lin has made a living turning the demons of her past into the passions that fuel, and fill, her life. She's a scrappy little thing. A sweet, angel-faced wrecking ball to his good intentions capable of making him laugh, and turning him inside out. Hell's bells, watching her execute that wicked roundhouse kick of hers shouldn't be a turn-on - especially not when his head is the receiving target - but hot damn, it is. She's a fiery, unpredictable paradox who wears her heart on her sleeve, despite the wounds he knows she has hidden as deeply as he hides his own.

Even though she's everything he's told himself he can't have, Hudson can't help but want her. Sure as sin, if one woman could sneak past the barbed wires he's wrapped around his heart, it'd be Lia.

Now if only they could stop sparring long enough to find out...

Broken Bonds #2

Release Date: July 16, 2105

Genre: Erotic Thriller / BDSM

Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs





✾ Synopsis ✾


The UNSUB has made contact.

After a rapid string of grisly murders shakes the usually peaceful city of Arlington, Virginia, the sadistic killings of young women lull into a deceptive calm. Agent Sadie Bonds knows the terror isn't over; serial killers don't stop until caught.

And this sadist has targeted the profiler, revealing pieces of her dark past and weaving her secrets into each gruesome crime scene. Is the killer someone from Sadie's past, her present? Or is he part of a fated future she brought on herself? The answer lies within the riddle of the copycat killings, ones mimicked after the infamous Blood Countess.
As tension brews in the department awaiting the UNSUB's next move, Sadie's more than on edge — her deviant cravings for the possible perpetrator have ratcheted out of control. She needs the feel of Colton's ropes binding her, sheltering her from stark reality.

Only Colton Reed has his own twisted secrets that threaten to unravel not only Sadie as they come to light, but the UNSUB's carefully constructed web now entangling both the profiler and her sexy bondage rigger.

Is Sadie too close to this case to be objective, or is the UNSUB closer to her than she ever imagined...

✿ The Series ✿


With Visions of Red
Broken Bonds #1





✾ Synopsis ✾


Criminal profiler Sadie Bonds knows blood. Her affair with the gruesome, dark world of killers began long before she started applying her analytical skills to investigate gory crime scenes. She gets inside the killers' heads, breaks them down, relates to them on an arcane level. She prefers it this way — because it's safer to ally herself with the villain than the victim. At least, that's how she's coped ever since she was abducted and tortured as a teen.

She will never be a victim again.

Now, she's honed her skills in order to bring justice to these ritualistic offenders. Working alongside her colleagues, armed with sharp wit and a SIG, Sadie always catches her sadist. Until one ruthless serial killer gets inside Sadie's head, turning the tables. He knows her secrets. Her obsessions. The darkest, most deviant part of her soul.

When she meets Colton Reed, dangerous stakes are raised as he threatens to unravel her control and reveal her darkest fantasies. The sexy-as-sin bondage rigger at an exclusive BDSM club pushes her boundaries, forcing her to acknowledge that side of herself she fears. Plunged into a realm of torture and suffering, pain and pleasure, Sadie balances on the razor-sharp edge of two intersecting worlds threatening to swallow her.

Passion and lust ignite. Dark and light battle. This explosive first installment of the Broken Bonds series sets the exhilarating pace for a cat and mouse game where no one knows who's really pulling the strings.

✾ Synopsis ✾


The Fates are cackling their bony asses off...

It's been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they've given him have been violent and bloody - which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He's got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy's deal might be, but it's a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

Two men want me and I, them. Simple, right? Not like this.
For over two years, I've been dealing with a pain in the ass MY way.
Separately.
She has her life and I have mine. They don't intermingle. It's the only way to keep things rational. But now she's done something monumentally stupid and the only way to untangle myself from her mess is to live life in her shoes. Me, on the run in five inch stilettos. Great.
My name is Trista Dividir. I have Dissociative Identity Disorder and Marvy is my other personality, my alter.
To get my life back, I lie, I cheat, and I fall for both of her lovers. Little do I know, I am not the only liar.
Did I mention I have another alter? Yeah, I didn't know about her either.

Book one in a three part romantic suspense series with a smattering of smexy in between. In the end, you'll find your HEA... maybe.
Due to mature content and excessive whatever, this is a recommended read for age 18+.
