♡ Excerpt Reveal + #Giveaway ♡ Beautifully Brutal (The Southern Boy Mafia #1) by Nicole Edwards‏ @RSofRomance

Sixteen Months ago.

"Holy shit," she said softly. "That's a nice car."

"You like it?" he asked, sounding proud of himself.

"Who wouldn't?" The newest model convertible Corvette Stingray was likely the sexiest car of them all. She'd always had a fondness for sports cars, but she'd never been truly fond of Corvettes. At least not until they recently released the Stingray again.

Max stepped in front of the car, blocking her view of the car. "Happy Birthday."

"How...?" Confused she studied him. "How did you know?"

"What? That it was your birthday or that you'd want that car?"

Courtney peered around him. "That... That's for me?"

"It is," he told her. "Now go check it out."

Feeling slightly off kilter, Courtney slowly moved around the car, her gaze darting between Max and the sleek shark gray metallic car.

"Seriously, Max. This is... Well, it's incredible, but you know I can't take this car."

"Yes you can," he told her simply.

The top was open so she peered inside, taking in the sexy jet black leather interior. She wondered what it would feel like behind the wheel.

"Get in," he told her as he opened the passenger side door.

When he slipped into the car, she grinned. What the hell. It wouldn't hurt to take it for a test drive, right?

And then, when they got back she'd tell him she couldn't keep it. Because falling in love with him was one thing, accepting a car that likely cost him close to a hundred grand was something entirely different.


"Pull over," Max instructed when they were hidden by a copse of trees deep on his land. He'd wanted her to test drive the Corvette, but admittedly he'd had something else in mind as well.

Another birthday present for her.

Courtney stopped the car, frowning when she looked over at him.

"Don't look so upset," he said with a smile. "Now get out."

If he wasn't mistaken, there was a hint of concern in her eyes, but he shrugged it off. He didn't want to think that she'd fear him for any reason. She'd surprised him earlier when she muttered for him not to hurt her and he had to wonder where that was coming from.

Then again, she knew him, knew what he was capable of. But in the same sense, if she ever thought he would hurt her, she didn’t know him at all.

Once she met him at the front of the car. Max turned to her, taking her into his arms and crushing his mouth to hers, his hands trailing the thin fabric that covered her. She'd worn a skirt, which had been his suggestion and again, he'd had something in mind when he made the request. He had to wonder whether she'd figure that out yet or not.

Easing her back onto the hood of the car, Max pulled back enough to look at her.

"Kick off your shoes. Wouldn't want you to scratch the paint."

Courtney grinned, and her shoes hit the ground.

"Now for my next gift," he told her.

"And that would be?" She asked, grinning.

"An orgasm. On the hood of your car."

"Hmm. I like the sound of that."

The Southern Boy Mafia #1
The Southern Boy Mafia #1

Release Date: June 16th 2015

✾ Synopsis ✾

Sometimes love isn't beautiful...
Sometimes the only way to describe it is beautifully brutal.

If you think you know him... You're wrong.
If you think you know his family... Wrong again.
If you think you know his story... You don't.

If you did, you'd likely wonder how the hell a man like Maximillian Adorite managed to make it to this point in his life. At twenty-nine, he's experienced more than most people could only ever imagine, all thanks to his family. Organized crime they call it. Mafia.

No matter how they spin it, it comes down to one thing. Max gets what he wants. Except for the one thing he wants most.

Her name is Courtney Kogan.

And now that he's had a taste of her, Max knows he'll never be able to let her go.

The Southern Boy Mafia series is a spinoff from the Sniper 1 Security series. It has been set up to be read without reading Sniper 1 Security, however, the characters will frequently cross over.

♡ Release Day Launch ♡ Twisted Bond (Holly Woods Files #1) by Emma Hart @EmmaHartAuthor @InkSlingerPR

Twisted Bond
Holly Woods Files #1
Emma Hart

Release Date: June 11th 2015

✾ Synopsis ✾

I'm an Italian-Texan woman in a family full of cops. I'm passionate and shoot before I think. You only f*ck with me if you're stupid.

Photograph cheating spouses. Hand over the evidence. Cash my check.

That was my plan when I returned home to Holly Woods, Texas, and became a private investigator.

Finding the dead body in my dumpster? Yeah... Given the choice, I think I would have opted out of that little discovery, especially since all three of my brothers are cops. And my Italian grandmother is sure the reason I'm single is because of my job.

Of course, my connection to the victim is entirely coincidental. Until I'm hired by her husband to investigate her murder and shoved bang-smack into the path of Detective Drake Nash.

My nemesis, a persistent pain in my ass, and one hell of a sexy son of a bitch.

Shame he still holds a grudge from that time I shot him in the foot twelve years ago, or we could have something. In another life.

So now all I have to do is avoid my nonna's blind dates, try not to blackmail my brothers into giving me confidential police files, and absolutely do not point my gun at Drake Nash. Or kiss him. Or jump his bones.

All while I hunt down the killer.

Sounds totally simple — until a second body proves that sometimes things that start as coincidences don't always end up that way...

(Twisted Bond is book one of the Holly Woods Files series and while it does not end in a cliffhanger, it is not a standalone.)

"Why are you here?"

He pulls his ear defenders down. "Out here?"

"Here." I yank off my ear defenders. "At my parents' for family dinner. Out here, bugging me. Take your pick. I'll take a reason for either."

"Your nonna appears to have taken a real good likin' to me. If I didn't know better, I'd say she's tryna set us up."

"Clearly, she's losin' her mind," I snap, reloading my gun again before tucking it back into my boot. I fold my arms and meet his eyes. "And out here? Why are you here?"

Nothing. Just silence. Just those goddamned beautiful eyes boring into mine.

"No? Okay." I walk past him, pushing hair from my face.

"Don't go out with him again." His arm shoots out to stop me, and his words hit me hard. "Gio."

"Since when has it been any of your business what I do?" I face him, narrowing my eyes as our gazes collide. "Last I checked, I'm a single, grown woman, and if I want to go out with someone, I will."

"He's not the kind of guy you need."

"Neither are you," I reply, running my eyes down his white shirt, which is untucked over his dark-blue jeans. The bottom of his shirt is gaping, allowing me a view of a triangle of tan skin with a smattering of dark hair. I linger there for a moment before pulling my gaze back up. "Yet here we are, having this conversation, you thinkin' you know what's best for me."

✿ Excerpt ✿

"I still don't know enough about you."

"You know I am the son of evil. I live in a fortressed city far from here, and I enjoy a good Pinot and fast cars as much as you do. Is there anything else you need to know?"

She seemed pensive for a moment. "Do you have a girlfriend?"

"A girlfriend? No."

"Then a wife, or anything else?"

"None of the above." I shook my head. "And if it puts you at ease, it has been longer than I care to admit since I have been with a woman."

"It doesn't put me at ease. It means you're desperate."

"Desperate? If I were desperate I would have slept with the girl hanging all over me at that dive bar the other night."

"You hang out at dive bars?"

"It's the atmosphere that attracts me. I like to blend in. I go there because no one knows me, and no one cares."

"That sounds kind of sad." She played with the hem of her pajama shirt.

"It's no sadder than you turning into a recluse because of what happened to you. They are the ones that should hide. Not you." I took her chin in my hand. "You should never hide."

Our eyes locked, and I didn't think. I leaned in and brushed my lips against hers. She didn't respond at first, but then she started to move her lips against mine. I sped up the kiss, and she put a hand on my shoulder, pulling me in. I pushed my way into her mouth, wrapping my arms around her waist as I eagerly explored her mouth. I was out of control, I could not think straight. All I was aware of was her sweet taste, and the way her fingers tangled in my hair. I wanted to devour her, experience everything she had to offer, explore the places that no one had explored before. But I couldn't. Not yet. I forced myself to break the kiss. I stepped back.

She watched me, breathless, and with wide eyes. "You kissed me."

"You kissed me back." I smiled. I was as affected as her, but she was not doing a very good job at hiding her reaction.

"I did. I kissed you back, and since we are all about being honest, I want to kiss you again."

"You can."


I laughed. "That eager?"

"You ended it too soon."

♡ Excerpt Reveal ♡ Broken Lullabies (Love Of A Rockstar #2) by Nicole Simone @NicoleSimone20 @BTSPromosPR

Broken Lullabies
Love Of A Rockstar #2
Nicole Simone

Release Date: June 25, 2015

Genre: Contemporary Romance

✾ Synopsis ✾

His eyes as black as the the devils tongue
His melodic voice more tempting than a siren's call

Three years ago, Camille Barker was held at knife point but her attacker wasn't the one who haunted her dreams. No, it was the man that stood a-washed in the yellow glow of the street light, his stare observant but heedless. A witness to the senseless act. The venom that dripped from his twisted lips saved Camille's life and set her soul ablaze. Reemerging from the ashes, she set upon the well worn path her parent’s always dreamed she would take.

That is until rock n roller, Matthew Lee, shows her that you can only bask in the sun so long before the monsters come out to play.

✿ Excerpt ✿

The timer dinged on the oven and Matthew slipped on a pair of oven mitts. A golden brown quiche was set on the counter. He slipped a knife in the center then declared it satisfactory. If any of Matthew's fans were here to witness his domesticity, they would faint in delight.

"Take a seat and I'll serve you," he said.

I wanted him to serve me in a whole different way than he was offering. An image of him between my thighs putting his tongue to good use made me bite my lower lip to quell a moan. Matthew's eyes heated as his gaze dropped to my mouth. Sexual tension crackled in the air. Why was it the worst ideas were the most tempting?

"You need to stop looking at me like that, Camille," Matthew warned.

"Like what?"

"Like you want me to fuck you on the edge of the dining room table."

"It's a sturdy table."

Faster than I could breathe, Matthew shrank the gap between us and crowded me against the counter. "We would cross boundaries that are better left uncrossed."

"Why? You're single. I'm single. What's the problem? It's not like I'm asking for any kind of commitment."

"You deserve commitment." Matthew's electrifying stare roamed my face. "You deserve the whole fucking world, but I'm not the kind of man who could give that to you."

"What kind of man are you then?"

His steel grey eyes changed to a frightening shade of black. "The kind you should stay away from."

I sucked in a lungful of air as his thumb dragged across my lower lip. Need coiled tightly in my stomach. Lowering his head, Matthew brushed a featherlight kiss against my mouth.

Reeling back, he spoke with remorse. "I'm sorry - so incredibly sorry, Camille."

I got the sense he wasn't apologizing for leaving me high and dry. But what exactly he was apologizing for confounded me. Matthew kissed my forehead, turned around, and exited the kitchen. Seconds later, the front door clicked shut.

Career-driven, Focused, and Sensible.

Josh Murphy's life is mapped out. Twenty-five and co-owner of a construction company, he's ready to obtain his next goal: a wife by his side and babies to fill his house. He's always had his eyes set on the wild and fiery Tiffany, but knew she wasn't ready for the life he wanted. Until one drunk party snaps his restraint. It's time to make his move and finally claim his girl.

Unbound, Wild, and Free.

Tiffany Johnson wants to fly through life. She can't even decide on a college major, so Josh, Mr. Has-Life-Planned-Out-Perfectly, isn't an option. Even if she does want him. But she’s not ready for that kind of commitment or to be tied down. All she's willing to give is a little fun and adventure.

Secrets, Lies, and Deceit.

Everyone deserves to have a happily ever after, or so Tiffany thought. She was ready to give in, take the leap into forever with Josh. Until one soul-crushing phone call ruined it all.

What happens when everything you thought about love and life is crushed? Will Josh be able to fight and bring Tiffany back to the girl he fell in love with? Can he save the one girl he can't live without and claim his feisty Kitten forever? Or has Tiffany been broken beyond repair?

✿ Excerpt ✿

"Keep looking at me like that and I'll be needing those hand cuffs." His breath hot against my neck sends chills racing down my spine.

Shit. Fuck. Shit. Think fast Johnson! My heart pounds and a new pulse point has taken residence between my legs. What I wouldn't give to squeeze my legs together to ease the burning ache.

I walk my fingers up his chest, taking in the feel of the hard muscles beneath them, and sucking down the moan begging for release. Laying my hand flat between his pecs, I give him a shove back. Schooling my features and hoping like hell the lust isn't shining through in my eyes.

"Keep dreaming, magic. I was lost in Channing's 'Trick Pony' dance. Learn moves like that..." I lean forward and get eye to eye with him. I know I'm playing with fire, but he pushes all of my buttons and I can't stop myself. "You can do more than use the handcuffs."

He leans down brushing his lips against the shell of my ear. "Oh, Kitten. You have no idea what moves I've got." A shiver races through my body and moisture pools between my legs.

Mayday, mayday. Retreat.

Time to put the brakes on and pull out the bitch.
