Only Trick
Jewel E. Ann

✾ Synopsis ✾

"Don't Look Back in Anger"

In one night, I lost five years of my life. Here's what I know...

I was homeless.

I'm a recovering drug addict.

My inked skin crawls from lustful eyes.

I have a serious aversion to women.

My gay partner is a home wrecker.

I own a gun and I'm a damn good shot.

I'm a makeup artist, but it's an insult to my talent.

I've never wanted to possess anything except my Ducati... until I met Darby.

Now here's what I know since that day in the ER when she pieced me back together... nothing — but a few random thoughts.

My new "friend" is distracting, clingy, and obsessed with acronyms, emojis, and phrases like "breakfast soul mates."

I didn't want to like her, but she crawled under my skin and swallowed me whole. Now we're best friends and she's my new addiction. I'd drink her from a shot glass, snort her up my nose, or inject her into my veins if I could. What I won't do... is ever tell her that.

She doesn't know me... I don't know me. When those missing years come back, I think she will hate me... I think I will hate me.

My parents named me Patrick Roth, and this is my story.

✿ Excerpt ✿

"Ahh!" I scream as the closet door opens. My heart explodes and I nearly wet myself. I shuffle my feet against the floor, scooting as far in the corner as I can, hugging my knees to my chest.


I shake my head, holding my breath.

His lip twitches. Then, with what can only be described as a scene from a horror movie, he grabs my ankles and drags... he fucking drags me out of the closet. "Trick!"

Hoisting me over his shoulder, he smacks my ass so hard I yelp. "I'm thinking sofa."

"Trick! Stop!" I scream, kicking and flailing as he carries me downstairs. As I pound my fists against his back, something catches my eyes. He has the ties to both my satin and terrycloth robes partially tucked into the waistband of his shorts along with one of his belts.


He sets me down with my ass backed up to the sofa, my chest heaving, eyes wide.

"Do you love me?"

I swallow and nod.

"Do you trust me?"

My gaze falters.

"Darby?" He lifts my chin with his finger.

"Do. You. Trust. Me?"

Another swallow, another nod.

"Good." He lifts my yoga top over my head, wetting his lips as he stares at my breasts. Then he pulls down my pants, leaving me naked. His lips skim up my legs, stopping at my sex, but all he does is just breathe out causing my legs to pinch closer together. Then he inhales. Standing, he watches me — daring me to run again.

✿ Excerpt ✿

I stand in front of her. "Take your clothes off."

She looks surprised by this.

And normally, I'd want to undress her, but not now.

She needs this.

"Um," she says, looking puzzled.

"I'm taking my clothes off," I say as I strip them off and throw them into a chaise. "Get naked with me."

Her eyes trail hungrily down my body. I love the desire I see in them, but that's not what this is about.

If it were, I'd have her stripped and pinned under me in about two seconds flat.

I walk down the steps and into the pool, the water the perfect soothing temperature.

She takes her clothes off and joins me in the center.

"I don't like being told what to do," she says softly.

"I know you don't, but sometimes you need it." I give her a long, sweet kiss. Then I hold her shoulders, keeping her away from me. "You're naked," I state.

"Yeah, I am," she flirts.

"That means right here, in this pool, it's just us. Naked."

"You've said the word naked like four times. I get it. We're naked."

"We are physically, but I want you naked emotionally."

Thunder Road #1

Release Date: May 26th 2015

✾ Synopsis ✾

An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father — the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent — but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're... family. And while Emily — the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member — is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

♡ Trailer Reveal + #Giveaway ♡ Spark by Erin Noelle + Excerpt @authorenoelle @loveaffairwfict

Erin Noelle

Genre: Mature New Adult

Release Date: April 20th 2015

I'm failing.

My younger brother is getting worse, and my job – my duty – is to help him at all costs. We've tried everything modern medicine has to offer and nothing works.


Deciding to turn to unconventional treatments, we end up at Fire-on-the-Mountain, a holistic resort deep in the Rockies.

In our search for medical marijuana, I find beautiful, free-spirited Hudson Shavell – a girl who may not only hold the key to heal my brother, but to fix me as well. Even though I can't afford distractions right now, she's all I can think about. All that I want.

It's funny how everything can change with one little SPARK.

Just as I'm wrapping up my morning duties, a light tapping startles me. Whirling around, I see two silhouettes standing outside, with the muted light from the dawn breaking behind them. I scurry across the cement ground and open the tinted plexiglass door, shocked to see Crew and Caleb, both bundled up like they're prepared for a blizzard.

"Mornin', hippie girl. Cool hair," Caleb greets me cheerfully. "Can we come inside? I'm freezing my balls off out here."

"Of course, you little wussy. We wouldn't want that to happen." I giggle, moving back out of the doorway to let them in.

Crew doesn't say anything at first, but as he steps inside and our eyes meet, his lips quirk up in an endearing, sleepy smile. Holy shit, that's sexy. I wonder if that's what he looks like right when he wakes up in the mornings. Does he sleep in pajama pants, or just his underwear? Boxers or boxer-briefs?

"Hudson? Did you hear me?" Caleb's voice rips me from my daydream... ...my daydream that was quickly leading into indecent territory.

I pivot around to face him, but not before catching the flicker of acknowledgment in Crew's smirking eyes, which is nearly as mortifying as my parents talking about their sex life at dinner last night. "What's up, buddy?" Mentally berating myself, I shuffle over to the broccoli plants, where Caleb is standing and shaking his head.

"Not you too?" he groans, pinching his brow at me. "You've already got the look."

Shifting my gaze back and forth between the two of them, I ask, confused, "Me too? What look?"

He sighs dramatically and throws his hands up in the air. "The same Crew-is-so-dreamy-I'll-do-anything-for-him look that every girl between the ages of fifteen and twenty-five gets when they're around him." My face tenses as I try to not have that look. "Can't you all see I'm his spitting image? A slightly younger, untainted version, I might add."

"Shut up, Caleb." Crew playfully shoves him as he joins us, allowing his arm to brush up against mine. "Don't listen to this little punk. He's just messing with you."

I laugh to cover up the twinge of disappointment I feel, though I'm not sure why Caleb's words sting like they do. Crew is the kind of gorgeous that is usually reserved for boy band members — part messy, part dreamy, all sexy. It's not that I'm surprised girls fall all over him; I just don't like being lumped in the same category, like I'm just another brainless chick, falling for his pretty face. I bite my lip, wanting to scream at him that I'm different, but knowing I'm not.

"What are you guys doing up so early?" I question, swallowing down my frustration and fighting to keep my face neutral. "Where's your mom?"

"I woke up with a seizure and couldn't fall back asleep. Plus, I think my body's still on Texas time," Caleb replies while he continues to mosey around, investigating everything. "Mom's showering and getting dressed. She's supposed to meet us at breakfast."

His mention of the seizure immediately brings things back into perspective for me. I've got no right to be disheartened about anything; my primary concern with the Elliott family is to do what I can to help Caleb heal. The kiss needs to be pushed to the back of my mind.

"How often do you have them?"

"Every morning, when I wake up, and then a couple of other times during the week — usually when I'm stressed or exhausted." He sounds so matter-of-fact, like seizures are an expected part of someone's normal daily routine. It breaks my heart. Bending down to sniff the rosemary and thyme, he changes the subject. "This stuff smells good. You cook with it a lot?"

I nod once, not wanting to talk about herbs, but to find out more on his condition. "Yeah, occasionally. What's it like? The seizures, I mean."

"Honestly, I don't remember them when they're over. From the looks on the faces of everyone around me, I guess it's pretty fucking bad, but I don't know," he replies with a shrug. "The headaches are what kill me. It feels like my head is gonna explode from the pressure."

"Did you try out any of the stuff I brought yesterday?"

"No, we didn't," Crew rumbles from behind me, sending a tingle up my spine, but I refuse to turn around. I don't want to get the look again. "We thought it'd be best if you were with him the first time. None of us have ever used one of those vaporizers before, and we didn't want to fuck it up and waste what you gave us."

"It's not rocket science," I assert. "I'm sure you can figure it out."

He moves closer, his chest resting against my shoulder blade, his warm breath drifting across the back of my neck. "I thought you were gonna help us."

Guilt slices thr.ough my gut as I recognize how selfish my last comment was. This isn't about you, Hudson, I remind myself. "I am and I will," I reassure them both, glancing down at my watch briefly. "I have to go set up for breakfast now, but I don't have classes today, so I'm free after that. Whenever works best for you guys, I'll be there."

"Mom's gotta run some errands after breakfast, so after you get finished would be great. Caleb and I'll just be chillin' around here for a while."

"'Kay, sounds good." I smile over at the younger Elliott brother, who's now inspecting the poblano pepper plants. "You ever had Chiles Relleno before?"

Twisting his mouth, he looks up into the sky, as if he's trying to remember if he has or not. "If you have to think that long about it, they must not have been very good," I joke. "Why don't you pick a few and I'll make them for your breakfast? If you don't like them, I'll whip you up an omelet instead."

"Really?" His face illuminates with delight. "I've never picked my breakfast before. This is kinda cool."

"Yeah, and later today, I'll show you around the other greenhouse, where we grow the pot, so you can see it in all of the different stages." Peering over my shoulder at Crew, I lift my eyebrows in a questioning manner. "If that's okay?"

He flashes a captivating grin and nods. "Absolutely. As long as I can come too."

"I'll think about it," I flirt back, unable to resist his enticing charm, but quickly turn away to help Caleb choose his peppers.


A little before eleven, I hang my apron up, flip the light off in the kitchen, and close the door behind me, finally finished cleaning up after the breakfast rush. I ended up preparing no less than ten dishes of Chiles Rellenos, because as the other guests began to filter in and saw what Caleb and Crew had on their plates, they wanted it too. It was so well received from everyone Doug even suggested we make it a permanent item on the menu, which thrilled me. I may have a bit of a pleaser mentality, but I like knowing I pull my weight around here.

Also during breakfast, Mel confirmed with Mary that she knew about me giving the boys a smoking lesson this afternoon — which she did — and then invited them all over for dinner tonight so they can talk to her about moving and the paperwork she needs to start on. So, basically, I'll be spending most of the day with Crew, and I can't decide if that's a good thing or not.

I don't want to be one of those girls who goes all goo-goo around him, but when he stares at me with those mesmerizing green eyes... when he says things about me belonging to him…when he kisses me unexpectedly... shit, when he just exists, I can't help it. I am thoroughly intrigued by all things Crew Elliott, no matter how hard I try not to be.

"What have I gotten myself into?" I mumble to myself as I run into my house for a quick freshen-up.

After I wash my face to remove the greasy feeling, brush my teeth, and apply a new coat of chapstick, I bound out of the house and across the property to cabin number eight, pretending I'm not in the least bit nervous. But before I make it up to the top step, the door flies opens and Crew barrels out, directly toward me.

Like déjà vu from the night before, his lips crash down on mine without any warning, capturing me in a staggering kiss that forces me to grab hold of his arms to keep from losing my balance. My mouth opens for him instinctively, our tongues stroking one another's with wild abandon, his sure and demanding, mine shy and welcoming, and I stop thinking about anything other than how amazing this moment feels. I never want him to stop doing this.

His hands tangle in my hair and I slant my face, deepening the kiss. Nudging me with his hips, he backs me against the porch frame, pinning me, his thick thigh pushing my legs apart until he's pressed up against my throbbing core. I moan into his mouth as he drains me of my sanity, unable to resist the urge to rock against him, feeling his length start to harden against me. He draws my lower lip between his teeth, sucking and nibbling like it's the best thing he's ever tasted, and I hold on tighter, my fingers flexing against his muscled shoulders.

Caleb clears his throat loudly at the doorway, causing us to swiftly break apart and whip around to face him, like kids caught with our hands in the cookie jar. "Y'all can finish making out later. Right now, you're supposed to be getting me high," he protests with his arms crossed over his chest.

At first, I'm afraid he's really annoyed with us, but when I lift my mortified eyes to meet his, he winks playfully, somewhat relieving my guilt-ridden conscience. I exhale my pent-up breath and glance at Crew, whose gaze is still fixed on me. Unfazed by his brother's interruption, he leans down and skims his soft lips across my cheek, landing them next to my ear.

"Sorry, not sorry. I've been waiting all fucking morning to do that," he whispers, then grabs my hand to lead me inside, "and we're definitely finishing this later."

5 stars of beauty, touching every single emotion in the eloquent way only Noelle can.
~ S.E. Hall, NYT Bestselling Author

Noelle really shows her breadth as a writer in Spark – funny, sexy, sad, witty and poignant – all in exactly the right places. Set among the grandeur of the Colorado mountains and caught in the middle of legalized marijuana, ski bunnies and hipsters, Spark is not only a story about young love, but conviction, strength, and the meaning of family. A five-star, do-not-miss, full-of-feels new adult read!
~ Rachel Blaufeld, Author of the Electric Tunnel series and Redemption Lane

Erin Noelle has a way of drawing you into a story and you just don't want to leave. You can smell the air, touch the characters and become one with her words. Granted, Erin has a way of making your chest clench, find it necessary to scream and grab a tissue.
~ Joanne Schwehm, Author

Bottom line is... Erin Noelle hit this one out of the park. She gives you EXACTLY what you want when you want it, like she was in my brain, piecing together the perfect new adult novel. Like she was like "I wonder how Ashley would feel about this" and then WHAM she gives it to me... you will love, you will cry, you will be broken, you will be empathetic, you will be ANGRY AS FAAAK, and you will be put back together in a way that only Erin can...

~ Ashley Suzanne, Author

Just finished reading an ARC of Spark by Erin Noelle!!! Wow!! This book kept me up all night reading. I'm telling you now that Spark is a definite must read that will have your emotions running wild and falling in love with Crew, Hudson and everyone else that you'll meet. Thank you, Erin!!

♡ Release Blitz + Teasers ♡ Kingsmen MC Collection by Tara Oakes @Lil_Oakes

♡ Release Blitz ♡

The first four Kingsmen MC books
are now all together in a collection!

Kingsmen MC Collection
Tara Oakes

✾ Synopsis ✾

*** Warning *** This collection is intended for those 18 years or older due to mature and sexual content.

Journey through Jay and Lil's epic love story and explore the growing romance between Clink and Charlie, book after book at an incredible value.


Lil's and Jay lived their very own fairytale biker romance. He was her first love, her only love. She was what he needed, what he wanted.

Insecurities, fear and misconceptions lead Lil's to make a heartbreaking decision to abandon that life and love behind, before it consumes and destroys her as it did her mother years earlier.

But... moving on isn't so easy when you are deeply connected to your past.

When Lil's finds herself in a whirlwind of danger her knight in shining armor, er..., her badass biker on a Harley bails her out. But at what cost?


Do fairytale's always have a happily ever after? Jay and Lil's had just found the love they once shared and foolishly lost. But, a horrific turn events threatens to end it forever. Jay must race against time to save his ol' lady Lil's and their baby before tragedy strikes. In this sequel we learn more about Jay, the deep love he has for his soulmate, and just how far he is willing to go to protect her.

This novella is approx. 50,500 words and does not contain a cliffhanger ending like it's prequel. However, an epic love story like Lil's and Jay cannot possibly be wrapped up in two tidy little novella's... now can it?


Jay and Lils' epic tale of true love has unfolded, first in A Lil' Less Broken, followed by A Lil' Less Lost, and now concludes in the third installment of Tara Oakes' thrilling Kingsmen MC saga.

Jay has proven his loyalty over and over... that he is willing to do whatever necessary for his one true love, his Lil' one, Julia. She just so happens to have an uncanny ability to find herself in need of that loyalty time and again.

What happens when the tables turn and it is Lil's who must risk it all to save her ol' man? To prove once and for all, to him, and to the MC they call family that she is no longer the little girl they've known. But instead, is a fierce ol' lady determined not to stand idly by as everything she has worked so hard to regain is threatened.


The Kingsmen MC's saga continues in this newest installment of Tara Oakes' tantalizing new series. In the first three novella's you've come to know and love the characters within the club. Jay and Lil's have had their epic love story play out over the pages of A Lil' Less Broken, followed by A Lil' Less Lost and finally, A Lil' Less Hopeless. While their fairytale is far from over, the next arc in the series concentrates on some of the other intriguing characters that have been woven throughout Jay and Lil's storyline.

The question on everyone's mind is... WHO IS CHARLIE? And what is she hiding?

Planting herself deep within the club's inner circle, Charlie came to Chisolm with one goal in mind... to destroy the Kingsmen, M.C., no matter the personal cost. An unknown hatred fuels her mission to take them down. Pairing herself up with one of the club's bad boy's, the M.C.'s enforcer, Clink, seemed like just the ticket to get her in the door.

Once inside the club she had been eyeing from afar, she comes to realizes things are very different from what she had imagined them to be. Villainizing the group as a whole for an injustice that was done to her many years earlier no longer seemed to fit with growing attachments and relationships she was forming.
