♡ Cover Reveal ♡

Wounded Souls Series #4
Amanda Lanclos

Release Date: Fall 2015

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Mason Lockhart has always been the quiet one, the one who never let his emotions show. It was better to be that way when you moved around from foster home to foster home. When he finally found a place he fit in, he was frightened it would all disappear. As if he would awaken from a dream and realize he was still living the nightmare. Until the day that he met Kate Jackson. That's when he finally felt alive. He finally had a purpose in life, and she was it.

Kate Jackson always had the life she wanted. She married her High school sweetheart, had a child and thought nothing bad would ever come her way. Then the knock every Military wife dreads sends her world into a spiral she can't seem to escape. After Mason Lockhart comes waltzing in, she learns that life doesn't always turn out the way you expect it to. She tries to avoid Mason and the attraction sizzling between them, but what do you do when what you feel is Undeniable?

We order dinner as well as a margarita and beer for Mason. Before we realize it we've been there for two hours just enjoying each other's company, as well as the food and drinks. At first I was worried about all the people we may see coming here, but I soon relaxed enough to not care. I could feel their eyes on me but it didn't stop me from enjoying the night with Mason. I saw some giving approving looks in my direction. I was almost positive they were just happy to see me living again – to hear me laugh and to not just look like a shell. Once we finished our dinner, he surprised me yet again by getting tickets to 'The Longest Ride' instead of 'Avengers'.

"What? I'm here to make you happy," was his reply as we shared popcorn and watched the movie in a companionable silence. After the movie we rode back to the house and I shocked myself with not really wanting him to leave.

"Where are you staying?"

"I have a hotel across town."

"Oh," I look out the window, not really having the courage to ask him.

"If you want I'll come back in the morning and we can go get some breakfast. Sam told me you happen to love Nutella and banana crepes from IHOP."

"I'm sure she did. She tends to be the instigator," I laugh softly. "Mase," I bite my lip as the truck comes to a stop in front of the house.


Holy crap. Is he really going there? I watch him as he turns to look at me, the desire in his eyes matching the huskiness of his voice. Should I do this? "Would you like to come in?"

"I would, but I shouldn't. This would be crossing the friend line."

I should be glad he is the one being strong here, but my inner child is throwing a freaking tantrum in my head. I mean full on kicking and punching the floor while screaming not to let him do this tantrum. "Please stay." I bite my lip as his eyes search my face for a moment. It's been three years since I lost Matt, so I guess it's time to let go and move on.

He grabs the back of my neck, waiting for me to tell him to stop before his mouth is on my, branding me with a scorching kiss. I feel it all the way down to the soles of my feet and I know that Mason has ruined me with just a kiss. Even if this is all I ever get from him, I will never be able to get it out of my head, because Mason Lockhart has left an imprint on my soul. He pulls away, breathing just as hard as I am. The child tantrum has been replaced with the inner vixen who is quite pleased with how she has this strong man wheezing as if he has just run a 5K.


Amanda resides in the lovely state of Louisiana just a short drive from Death Valley aka Baton Rouge. When she isn't head deep into a book she is spending time either blogging, writing, or being a mommy to two beautiful blonde headed blue eyed babies. Amanda never expected to be a writer, but one day that all changed when she saw a picture of a military man with both of his legs taken from an IUD in a war, and that is where her inspiration came for her very first novel Irreparable. With three books already out in the series she is working on the next as well as a Christian Romance about how to overcome grief and blaming yourself.

✾ Synopsis ✾

After eight months of being single, Anatashia Montgomery decided to venture back out into the dating world. Only to meet more frogs and toads than white knights and princes. After several dating mishaps, Ana considered that she wasn’t ready and that getting back out there was more a hassle than it was worth.

Just as Ana was about to give up on dating and consider celibacy, as fate would have it, she would meet Connor Scott, the eligible billionaire playboy who was known to go through women like a buffet line. The man she promised her friend that she would never get involved with.

✿ Excerpt ✿

Hope rubbed her hands together looking anxious. "So... how was your date Saturday night? Good? Bad? Which one was it?"

I shook my head, "Bad! I was better off staying at home and enjoying my foursome for the night."

"Foursome?" Hope scoffed. "Ana, you've never even had a threesome so how could you even have a foursome?"

I huffed. "Just so you know, I've had plenty of threesomes and foursomes. Ben and Jerry and I have gotten quite acquainted with each other over the past several months since my break-up with Frank and when I'm in the right mood I'll add BOB into the mix."

Hope quirked an eyebrow and started sniggering, "Well damn, I guess I've had a few threesomes and foursomes too. However, I don't really think that having Ben and Jerry ice cream and umm... BOB, your battery operated boyfriend, constitute as a real threesome or foursome."

"Said who? It does to me. I might not be able to really get off with just Ben and Jerry. They have been known to just tease and indulge me a little bit but if I add BOB to it. Well... forget about it. I see the light, Carol Ann. I'll come to the light and envision the real threesome and foursome before me."

"Damn girl! I had no idea you were that kinky." Hope chuckled. "I'm not certain that those movie producers of Poltergeist had that in mind when they wanted Carol Ann to go to the light."

I gave her a grin then shrugged, "What can I say? I see stars when I come to the light."

We both laughed. Then Hope said, "Well, you go girl. Go ahead and enjoy your foursome."

Of course, Beth returned at that moment. She had a sheepish smirk plastered on her face, clearly overhearing Hope calling me out enjoying foursome. When in all honesty, I've never had anything more than a twosome. Our server, Beth, was clearly quite amused.

✿ Excerpt ✿

Waiting outside the bathhouse, a gentleman, with honey-golden hair and eyes as green as the blades of grass on a summer's day, stops in front of me. He looks me over and smiles. His face is covered in scruff and dirt licks his skin. "I approve."

There's an arrogance surrounding this man, and I have the urge to silence him.

"You approve of what?" I ask and cross my arms defensively. My eyes narrow, unpleased.

"I approve of you joining me in the bathhouse. Though I admit you look pretty clean already. Guess I shouldn't be surprised." He reaches out to touch a strand of my blonde hair and I swat his fingers away and force his arm down to his side.

"You've lost your mind." My grip on his wrist is forceful, showing him who's boss.

"What do you think you're doing?" he asks, glancing down at my hand still holding his wrist.

✿ Character Interview ✿

A Character Interview with Hannah

Do you ever feel jealous of the queen, your former mistress and friend?
She's still very much my friend. Sometimes late at night I'm jealous of the romance between Ella and Alexander, but I've come to accept my position at court. As for Ella being queen, that's a job I would never want.

How hard is it for you to keep a secret?
Lies mounting up will get you caught. The goal is to weave a tale of truths into the secret so that you remember every detail. There are times I wish I didn't have to keep secrets, but my life and those I love depend on it. I know how to keep my mouth shut. It's not easy but I'm careful.

You travel to Paris quite a bit. Do you like it there?
It's absolutely beautiful. There's a wealth of silk, jewels, and other fine goods at the market that I can't easily get elsewhere.

What about the men in Paris?
I avoid most of them as best I can. If I brought a gentleman back to the palace, Ella or Alexander would likely have my head.

✿ Author Interview ✿

Three Questions with the author, Ravyn Rayne

All your romance novels tend to be novella length, can you tell us why that is?
Sure! I find I prefer reading and writing shorter romance novels, especially when it comes to romantic erotica. I want my readers to enjoy the novel, the romance, and the sex without feeling boggled down by too many plot details that aren't necessary. (Have you ever read a book and thought, wow this scene was totally unnecessary?) If I want to write a subplot or have a specific direction I desire the story to go in, then I will continue the series in another book. Some of my favorite romantic erotica novels are 22k-30k words, which tend to be the length I'm writing. This also gives me the opportunity to write a lot and publish often. So readers will be able to pick up a new Ravyn Rayne title every month and sometimes two per month!

Is there going to be a third book in the Palace Secrets series?
Yes! Grave Misfortune has already been written. It's scheduled for release September 24th.

Where can readers find out information on your upcoming novels?
I have a page on my website Ravyn's Books, that exclusively details the books, blurb, release date (if available). It also includes information on the current books I'm working on. Sometimes there's changes to the page if a book hasn't been released yet (title, slight blurb change), but for the most part it's fairly accurate. It's also the most up to date place I keep information.

✿ Excerpt ✿

I headed into the trees near the shed, dead leaves crunching under my feet. It wasn't going to be my best time that night because I was too tired and irritated by the whole thing to rush. Couldn't the drill have waited? Or couldn't this part of the drill have waited? It's not like we never did this.

After getting scratched by branches I couldn't see and tripping on underbrush, I picked up my pace just to get out of there, transitioning into a jog. I wouldn't be able to keep it up with the backpack, but I figured I could go in bursts.

I started running, my light bouncing up and down. I dodged a tree just in time, but then my toe caught and I crashed facedown in the leaves. My flashlight flew out of my hand, landing a few feet away and spinning around to shine right in my eyes. I shut them, sitting up and pausing a moment until the spots in my vision cleared.

When I could see again, I almost wished I couldn't. The flashlight spotlighted what I'd tripped on – a girl – sprawled on her stomach across the dead leaves, her eyes frozen on me, her skin beyond pale. I screamed, grasping at the leaves to get on my feet, grabbed the flashlight and ran.

I got two feet when I got tangled in something wet and sticky. It wrapped around my face and body like wet strands of hair and I flailed, getting more entangled, sucking in shallow, rapid breaths. My heart raced so fast I couldn't hear anything else.

I wanted to scream again, but I choked it down, forcing myself to take a few deep breaths, trying to think about this rationally. This was a drill. So... maybe this was just part of the drill and that's why Dad made us go on foot. He was testing us – me – to see how we handled an actual scary event. The body was just a dummy or even a person they'd hired to play dead or something. It was just another test. I didn't know what this stuff was that I was wrapped up in, but I could get out of it. All I had to do was focus.

✿ The Author ✿

I've always loved stories. From bedtime tales my parents told me about their childhood (over and over again) to the Berenstain Bears, I lived to hear the next story.
So I guess it's not surprising that I came up with my own stories and started putting them on paper as soon as I could write. I remember carting notebooks with me to school and working whenever I had the chance (some things don't really change). Later, I branched out into poetry and plays and experimental works, but I always came back to stories.
Weirdly enough, even though I loved mysteries and sci-fi/fantasy, I focused on writing literary short stories for several years. But everything changed when I wrote my first novel as a challenge in 2009. Not only was it a novel, but it was also a mystery (actually, it's what became The Jester's Apprentice). I was hooked, and over the last few years, novel writing has grown into a full-time pursuit. (According to my sister, I talk waaayyy too much to write short stories.)

Beyond writing, I'm a Massachusetts native with strong ties to the Rhode Island coast, and I love to bake, watch movies, and tackle graphic/web design projects.

✾ Synopsis ✾

A homeless young woman. A respected, mature Dominant. And too many years between them.

Dave Adams has been alone ever since his wife left him for her girlfriend years before. Of course, he's not alone: Managing Bliss, an elegant, members-only BDSM club, is his life, and with submissives galore, Master Dave has whatever he wants, whenever he wants it. He's seen his son and his son's best friend both find the loves of their lives, but Dave knows his time's up.

But that was before he opened the back door to take out the night's garbage and found a young homeless woman trapped between him and the dumpster. Compassionate to a fault, Dave invites here in and tries to reach out to her, only to discover that a hideousness has transpired and left her more than just damaged. As he, Clint, and Steffen, with the help of Trish and Sheila, manage to draw out Olivia's demons and help her begin to confront them, something unexpected happens - Dave finds himself responding to Olivia's softness and vulnerability, and her to his dominance and loving guidance.

And just when it seems their May/December romance might stand a chance, a plan gone wrong convinces Dave that the last place Olivia needs to be is in his arms. He finds a way to send her on to bigger and better things, but when her whereabouts become unknown, Dave discovers that maybe dates on a calendar don't mean that much at all. Problem is, unless he can find her, it won't matter.

Return to Bliss and the characters you've grown to love in this final installment in the Me, You, and Us series, and find out what it takes to break into that scared, worn out heart in Dave Adams' chest.

✿ Teaser ✿

She kisses me. This girl has got to stop this. I've got to stop this. I'm trying to stop it, but I can't, and the kiss just grows and expands. Next thing I know, she's flat on the bed and I'm on top of her, my hands in her hair, kissing her, pressing her into the mattress. Her fingertips skate up and down the surface of my shirt, and then I feel them slip underneath it. What was throbbing is now rock hard, and it's difficult to breathe or sit still. God help me, I'm going down and she's taking me. I'm trying to stop kissing her, and I can't. This is too much, it's just too much.

✿ The Series ✿

Adventurous Me
Me, You, and Us #1

✾ Synopsis ✾

Boring. Tiresome. Predictable. That's how Trish's husband of almost 30 years described her when he told her he was leaving. Trish sets out to drink her blues away when she literally stumbles onto a man who offers her the adventure of a lifetime. Trish has no idea what she's walking into when she visits Bliss, the local BDSM club, but under Dave's tutelage, she takes to the new lifestyle readily.

And when she's paired for two weeks with Clint, the one Dom in the place who can't seem to stand her, sparks fly. He keeps her so confused that Trish isn't sure what's going on. She's sure of one thing, however: she's falling for the handsome, tortured soul, and she's hoping he's falling for her.

But when a simple mistake puts her in harm's way at his hands, Trish has to decide: is it an adventure worth dying for? And when everything falls apart, can she manage to forgive him? More importantly, can he forgive himself and bury the ghosts that have been haunting him for too long?

Adventurous Me is a fun, sexy, sweet, explicit, romantic romp that'll leave you breathless and hopeful. And it0s definitely not for the under-18 crowd.

Unforgettable You
Me, You, and Us #2

✾ Synopsis ✾

For Sheila, a lie is a deal-breaker. But what if it's not a lie? What if it's just not the whole truth?

Being a popular Dom at the nicest BDSM club in town would be the top of the mountain for lots of guys, but for Steffen Cothran, it's meant heartache. He lost someone he thought he might be able to have a future with to his best friend when Trish Stinson and Clint Winstead patched things up. He knows he wants a relationship, but so far he's had trouble finding that one person, the one he knows he's meant to be with, to make that happen.

That all changes when Trish and Clint walk into the club with Trish's best friend, Sheila Brewster. Even though he's met her, he never really had much contact with her. But Clint has a plan: he's looking for a Dom to protect Sheila in case her abusive ex-boyfriend manages to get paroled. And Clint happens to think that Steffen is a great candidate for that position.

Steffen and Sheila's relationship starts casually and quickly grows into a promising romance. But one question makes all the difference, and when Steffen doesn't lie but doesn't tell the whole truth with his answer, Sheila's left wondering if she can ever trust anyone again. And when Steffen's little omission shows up on his doorstep in full-blown chaos, the relationship he'd had such high hopes for is shattered, possibly forever.

In the aftermath, Sheila sets a course for self-destruction that turns out to be more dangerous than anyone could've imagined. With no one to blame but himself, Steffen finds it hard to help a woman who won't have anything to do with him.

Two broken hearts. One huge mistake. A few really bad choices. And a lifetime of pain if things can't be righted. It may be impossible to mend the broken trust, and their love could be lost forever.

The second in the Me, You, and Us series following Adventurous Me, Steffen0s story in Unforgettable You is funny, smart, sweet, kinky hot, and heartbreaking. It's a tale of what happens when you forget that there's not a lot of difference between a lie and a partial truth, and what love really means when two people belong together.

WARNING: This book contains explicit sexual situations in graphic detail. Not intended for readers under the age of 18. Reader discretion advised.

✿ The Author ✿

For as long as I can remember, I've been a writer...

and it has served me well. I wrote for local publications, wrote marketing and advertising materials, wrote for academic publications, and eventually grew jaded with the writing profession as I often watched others take credit for my hard work. I retreated into the world of 3-D art in the fiber and textile mediums and hid out in a world of colors and textures. But, truth is, there was always a story or two in my head. It wasn't until Nikki and I met in my imagination that I decided it was time to let those stories out, and I'm glad I did. My readers now get to enjoy the fruits of my imagination and, believe me, it runs wild!

On the personal side, I've been happily married to my lover and best friend for over thirty years, and I have two wonderful adult kids who've blessed me with two excellent choices of life partners. When I'm not writing, I'm playing with my three crazy little dogs, hiking in a local recreation area, kayaking, working out at the gym, tending my herbs, cooking, or doing some kind of research.

But I'd really rather be writing!
