Cover Reveal ~ BROKEN BY LIES by Rebecca Shea

Today we’re excited to share the cover of Rebecca Shea’s upcoming release, Broken By Lies! Broken By Lies is a new adult romantic suspense novel releasing on March 16th 2015! 

:About Broken By Lies:
I had no idea how much I would love Alex the day he walked into my life. 

He changed everything. 

The way I breathed.
The way I thought.
The way I loved.
He brought me back to life. 
He gave me strength and a safe place to land.

And then he broke me. 

Finding Emilia was a chance to do something good for once in my life. 

I wanted to change. 

She believed I was her savior.
I ached to be.
She found her way into my heart and claimed it as her safe place.
I should be telling her the truth about me…instead I break her with lies.

This book is a New Adult Romance and contains mature subject matter. It is not intended for those under 17 years of age. 

:An Excerpt:
**unedited, subject to change**
“What can I do to help you, Emilia? What do you need?” I wonder what it is she truly needs, aside from the basics of shelter and food.
“Nothing. You’ve done enough for me already.”
“I haven’t done anything.”
“You’re letting me stay here, which is very kind and honestly very unsettling.” She lets out a little laugh. “I don’t know you. I know nothing about you, except your name is Alex. And quite frankly, this entire situation scares me a little bit.” It’s the first time she’s been open with me, and I want to put her fears to rest.
“What do you want to know?” I lean back against the cool brick wall and study her.
She sits cross-legged on the bed, her skirt tucked just inside her knees. “Do you always pick up girls from the side of a road and bring them home?”
“Nope. This was definitely a first.” I chuckle.
“How old are you?”
“What’s your last name?”
I hesitate, wondering what she’d find if she Googled me. “Estrada.”
“What do you do—your job?”
Shit. My family runs a fucking cartel. We smuggle drugs, people, guns—you know, living the American dream. I barely contain my cringe as I half-lie, “I own real estate and am co-owner of a transportation business.”
That wasn’t so hard.
She eyes me cautiously. “So you’re rich.” She glances out the open bedroom door into the condo that’s overbearing and way too extravagant for someone my age.
“I have money, enough of it that I’m comfortable, but I’m hardly rich.” I don’t know why I said that, but it’s true. While I have cars, a luxury condo, and more money than I can spend in my lifetime, there are so many things I’m missing. The things that truly make a person rich, I will never have—a nine to five job, a normal relationship, a family.
A spark of amusement hits her eyes. “What’s your favorite color?”
I give a small smile. “Blue.”
“Do you have any siblings?” she continues.
My brows furrow at this sudden onslaught of random questions. Before I can answer, she jumps in with the one I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to answer honestly.
“What scares you?”
I hesitate, wondering how to answer. Never show your fears. This is how I was raised. Men don’t show fear and they never talk about what scares them. “Nothing. I mean, I haven’t really thought about that.” I shrug. “Nothing scares me.” Everything scares me. My life scares me. The fact that I have to look over my shoulder every time I step out of my house scares the living shit out of me.
Pushing forward off the exposed brick wall, I come to where she sits on the bed. As I get closer, her eyes drop from mine to her hands that’re resting on the pillow in her lap. I stand over her thin body and drink in her beauty.
You scare me, Emilia. The feeling to protect and care for a beautiful stranger that I just met scares the living shit out of me.
“What scares you?” I ask her quietly.
She looks up at me, her bright hazel eyes glistening with tears. “Everything,” she whispers. “Everything scares me.”
I want to run my fingers across her cheek to wipe her tears but I hold back. “Don’t be scared. I won’t let anything hurt you."
It’s the first of many lies I’ll tell Emilia.

A Stone in the Sea will Release on Feb 23

He wanted nothing at all…

Until he found she had everything to give…

Sunder lead singer and guitarist Sebastian Stone has everything—fans, fame, and fortune. He also has a heart full of bitterness and a reputation for a short-fused temper. But an outward reputation rarely reveals the true man inside. Facing assault charges after trying to protect his younger brother, Sebastian is sent to Savannah, Georgia to lie low until the dust settles in L.A.

Shea Bentley is beautiful, kind, and hiding from the very lifestyle Sebastian has always embraced.

When the mysterious, tattooed stranger begins hanging out at the bar where she works, Shea is quick to recognize he is nothing but trouble, but she's helpless to the way her body lights up every time his intense gray eyes tangle with hers.

They both soon find themselves drowning in a sea of desire and passion that won’t let them up for air.

Sebastian knows firsthand secrets never die, and he’s not the only one who’s hiding them.

Loving someone always comes with a price. But will it be Shea’s past that costs them everything?

Cover Reveal/Giveaway: FIGHT YOU by Abby McCarthy

Fight You FOR WEB

Synopsis Button 2 Daws is a Devil Crusader, born and raised a bad boy. He’s sick of superficial, meaningless relationships. Fate throws him a curveball when Aubrey begins working for his dad’s motorcycle shop. Aubrey is damaged and scarred. She’s running from a past that has the ability to destroy her. It’s not just herself that she needs to protect. She’s fighting to save her sister. She needs to keep the monster away and she’ll stop at nothing to keep her sister safe. She wasn’t expecting to meet Daws, the man who would change their lives. Dangerous, strong and completely hers, her heart never had a chance. Is Daws capable of protecting her from the monster who haunts her? The monster who will stop at nothing to get to her? He wants her back, that much is clear. She just hopes that when the time comes, she’s strong enough to save them all…. **Please note this is the second book in the Wrecked Series. It can be read as a stand alone and it is not necessary to have read Wreck You, however reading Wreck You first may give you some background to Daws. This book is intended for mature audiences as it has graphic scenes involving sex and child abuse. The use of the F bomb is frequently thrown around so if that offends you, I wouldn't recommend reading this. Excerpt “Get Lost.” I say to the ladies, standing in line outside of the bathroom. I get a few dirty looks but they know who I am. They’re at our event and my vest clearly says don’t fuck with me. There are only two stalls in the bathroom and luckily as soon as I walk in the last woman is opening the stall to leave. “Out!” I command and then turn the lock on the door so no one disturbs us. I see her ruby slippers sticking out the side of the stall. I open the door, which luckily was left unlatched. One hand is over her head braced against the wall. Her breaths are labored, rushing in and out like she is struggling to catch it. She hasn’t let her panic attack take her fully yet, but she is closed off enough that I don't think she knows I’m here. “Aubrey, take deep breaths sweet girl. Breathe for me.” I keep my voice low and as soft as it will go. I start to rub circles on her back whispering the same thing over and over again, hoping like hell that I can calm her nerves. By some stroke of luck it seems to be working, her breathing is starting to even out. “Daws?” She questions finally realizing it’s my voice she’s hearing. I’ve done my best to keep a safe distance from her, but I can’t help it. I grab her hand from the wall and spin her around cradling her in my arms. She smells so sweet, like berries, probably too sweet for me but right now all I want to do is to comfort her. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry you heard that. I’m a dick. I am. You don’t have to be afraid of me though. I promise I won’t hurt you. Just breathe for me. Okay? Just breathe for me.” She curls into me. Actually wraps her arms around my waist and curls into me. Her blue and white checkered outfit and her pigtails make her look young and innocent. She looks up at me, her green eyes emitting pain. “I’m not scared of you,” those words escape her lips in the softest tone barely audible. I want to kiss her and caress her but I know she isn't ready for that. She surprises me by reaching up on her tip toes and kissing me on the cheek. “I’m okay,” she says as her fake smile masks her pain. I stroke my thumb over her cheek. “Don’t do that,” I say then lean down close to her ear. “Don’t pretend with me.” She doesn’t give in to my quiet plea though. She backs away from me, straightens her skirt, walks out the stall door and leaves the

Cover Reveal: RADIANT POINT by Brei Betzold

Today we're excited to reveal the cover to Radiant Point by Author Brei Betzold! Radiant Point is a contemporary romance scheduled to release later this year. 
About Radiant Point 
Trinity Seymour knew she never wanted to be like her mother; Trinity wanted stability. In her teenaged mind, it was easy, go to college and get a good job. Only her life isn’t that easy and along the way, choices are made.
Trinity never could have envisioned where she’d end up or that Jeron Price, the local screw-up, would become her tarnished savior. Together they travel a path together that leads to friendship, love, and family. Only their life is built on a foundation of secrets that could destroy everything they’ve made for themselves.
How do you repair something you never knew was broken? And when the worst happens, how do you carry on?
An Excerpt
I looked up at Jeron to find him watching me, again “night” I murmured and turned to leave. Only Jeron caught my wrist and I turned towards him. He gently tugged me closer, his eyes watching me intently.
“Trin” he whispered, bringing his hand up to my cheek, his thumb gently caressing.  I couldn’t do anything but try to remember to breathe.  His other hand came up slowly stroking my other cheek, “Trin” he whispers again. One of his thumbs slowly strokes down my cheek, and then softly traces my bottom lip.  “So beautiful” he croons before leaning down, his lips so tenderly float across my own.  He pulls back slightly and looks at me, then leans back in. His hands slowly slide from cheeks to cup my neck on both sides, his thumbs sweep across my collar bone, reassuring me. Then his tongue gently glides across my bottom lip, my lips part on a soft sigh, and then he’s pressed against me, his tongue slipping across my lips into my mouth. He groans as our tastes mingle, and I’m lost in him, his scent, and his taste.
When he pulls back, his hands still against my neck, his thumb leisurely caressing my throat “Trin” he groans, sound like he’s in pain. That’s when I realize what just happened, my first kiss, and it was with my best friend. I push away, jolting him; his eyes widen as I spin away and run to my room slamming my door closed.
About the Author

In high school I had yet another English teacher inspire me to start writing short stories where I found my first true love, turning words into something so simple yet complex that it can move other people to love it or hate it, but in the end to feel emotions about something I created.

THE PLAYBOY'S PRINCESS by Joy Fulcher ~Book Blitz/Giveaway

Title: The Playboy's Princess
Author: Joy Fulcher
Add to Goodreads
Buy from Amazon | Barnes & Noble

What do a Hollywood playboy and a Disney Princess have in common? Not a lot, but they can fake it. 

Jade Pratt is living a tough life, surviving paycheck to paycheck by working at Disneyland. She'd like nothing more than to be swept off her feet by her own Prince Charming. 

Drew Malik is living what appears to be a charmed life: He’s the son of a famous actor and has money, women…anything he could want. But he's burning out in a life filled with booze and one night stands. When he finds out his trust fund is blocked until he either turns thirty or gets married, his friends plot to rescue him by placing an ad in the paper to find him a bride -- fast. 

When Jade answers the ad, the pair meet up and agree to an arrangement that will solve both their problems. But when their fake marriage elicits real feelings and real problems, they're both forced to re-evaluate their deal. 

Happily ever after was never the intention...but what if it's their destiny?
