🌟BOOK BLITZ:🌟 Good Grief by Vera Elle Unita {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}




Good Grief by Vera Elle Unita

Release Date: September 15th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

He wanted nothing more than to forget his past.
Until she came along, bringing color back into his world.
Now he’ll do everything to make her his.

Jasmine Frost had imagined the first day at her new job quite differently. How on earth could she have known the arrogant billionaire Cole Ward would insist on her leading the renovations of his mansion?
To oversee the project, Jasmine moves in with Cole. Turns out, the mansion needs more than a little makeover, and she is stuck with that growly bear of a man for weeks. He doesn't even like her French bulldog—who the hell doesn't like puppies?
Still, they can’t withstand the strong attraction between them. The dark look in his eyes is intriguing and Jasmine can't keep herself from digging into his past. But what if she doesn't like what she finds?

Fast, steamy, insta-love romance novel. Standalone, no cheating, HEA guaranteed.




{EXCERPT}

Where did he know her from? Cole still hadn’t figured it out. It bugged him since he was certain he’d seen that angelic face some time in his life before. And the colors on her! Only, he remembered her as even more colorful? Unsure, he kept pacing up and down in front of the window in his study.

The past few years, he’d lived solely for his tech firm, had buried himself in work after…no, he refused to think about it. He never ever wanted to think about that again. Back then he’d given himself one week. God, those seven days he’d drunk so much, he only remembered little shreds of it. That was good, though, because it had been the darkest time in his life. Never would there be a darker hour.

First, he’d drunk away his sorrow, then he’d lost himself in work. Over the years, he’d met many, many people. He had never really looked at their faces, though, because they just didn’t matter to him. Since that one night so many years ago, he didn’t care anymore—not for anything or anyone. His life was divided into two parts: before and after.

'Before' measured thirty-three years, 'after' only five. 'Before' had been a bright, happy time, full of laughter and sunshine, but the memories were too painful to let them cross his mind. 'After' didn’t contain anything important to him. Yes, his corporation meant a billion-dollar income, but for Cole it was only something to do, something to take his mind off what had happened years ago. He would throw everything away if only he could go back in time and change the past. Anything. For that, he would do anything at all!

Only, the past could never be changed. In one simple night, he’d become hard and cold. During the 'after' time he hadn’t really lived, only gone through the motions. No wonder he couldn’t pinpoint Jasmine Frost’s face. Probably she’d worked for one of his many associates and they’d met in a hallway or something. Cole couldn’t remember; it was all distorted in his mind. The last five years he hadn’t really lived, just existed.

When he had first seen her, he’d felt like he’d awakened after an endless sleep. Jasmine Frost had brought color back into his gray world. In fact, she’d done the impossible. Cole hadn’t thought that anything or anyone could ever make a difference in his life again. But she had. Everything had changed; his feelings had been and still were all over the place. After feeling nothing for so long, he wasn’t quite able to control himself. Yeah, that had been pretty obvious, seeing his behavior, or more so lack of behavior, in that elevator.

The only problem? Jasmine didn’t only bring color, no, she’d made every fucking memory come crashing back down on him. Not thinking about the past didn’t work anymore. The door, which he’d closed on his memories, had been ripped open. Now he couldn’t shut it anymore. She needed to fix that…him.

Still pacing, Cole raked a hand through his hair. All night he’d hardly gotten any sleep, had been way too unsettled to close his eyes. There was guilt and want, grief and hope, sadness and happiness all mixed together, rattling and shaking him to his core. For the thousandth time, he glanced through the window onto the long driveway to his home. Still no car, still no Jasmine. Where was she? He was a mess, couldn’t wait to see her face again. How would it feel this time? Would the gray come back into his world and eat everything away until there was nothing left, or would Jasmine awaken him once more with all her bright colors?

Cole wasn’t sure if he should wish for or fear the latter.

When he looked out of the window again, his heart stopped for a second. A car was driving up to his house. Of course, it was a bright yellow Mini Cooper. The sun was coming back to him.

🌟BOOK BLITZ:🌟 Fangs and Frenemies by Cherry Andrews {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}




Fangs and Frenemies by Cherry Andrews

Release Date: September 4th 2019
Series: Witches with Anxiety #1
Pages: 242
Genres: Adult, Cozy Mystery, Paranormal

A socially awkward bobcat shifter.

An ex-cheerleading vampire.

A sweet—but slightly neurotic—cupcake-baking witch.

They fight crime? 

When the case of a missing mean girl throws Hazel back into contact with two old classmates, it’s time for these supernatural frenemies to set aside past grudges and help clear each other’s names.

But in the cloudy, romantic beach town of Blue Moon Bay, Oregon, it seems nearly everyone’s guarding a secret. 

And they all involve magic of one kind of another. 

Will these three women, who normally can’t stand each other, crack the mystery of what really happened to Hazel’s old bully, Ashlee—or is their effort cursed to fail?




{EXCERPT}

I pressed the button to unlock Trixie, but nothing happened. Desperately I tried again, over and over. Couldn’t even hear her voice. “Crud! The remote battery must be dead.”

Max jogged back over, looking curious. “Maybe you could just fly to him, or something?”

I rolled my eyes at her. “Witches don’t fly, that’s a myth.”

“Not even with a broomstick?”

“Also a myth.”

“Can you stop time?”

“I’m a kitchen witch, not freakin’ Dr. Who.”

“Teleportation spell?

“That is a real thing,” I admitted grudgingly. “I’m just . . . not very good at those kinds of spells yet.” Or Mary Poppins clean up spells. Or reading auras.

“Right then.” Max closed her eyes and screwed up her face into a grimace.

“Wow, sorry that my witch skills aren’t up to your high standards,” I muttered, miffed.

Max’s eyes opened in surprise. “Hazel, I’m not judging you.”

“That’s not your judgy face?”

“No, it’s my shifting face. I’m getting ready to shift into a bobcat so I can sprint back home and get my car for you.”

I stared at her. “Wait, what?”

“Yeah, I thought I’d leave it at home today, it was nice and sunny . . . ”

“Not that. You didn’t by any chance just say you were turning into a bobcat?”

“Guess I did.” Max shrugged and made a lackadaisical “oops” face. “Welp, that was me coming out. You can process the whole ‘shifter’ thing while I get us some wheels.”

I didn’t so much see Max shift as I saw her clothes fall to the floor in a soft heap. A graceful, brown-spotted wildcat with black-tufted ears bounded past me. Picking up her still-warm shirt, I caught a whiff of the pleasant, woodsy essential oil blend she liked to mix up and use as perfume. Made sense. A bobcat liked the smell of the woods.

There wasn’t really much to process. Except what an idiot I’d been not to have guessed it all ten years ago.

This explained so much.

🌟BOOK BLITZ:🌟 Married to the Lord by Samantha Holt {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}




Married to the Lord by Samantha Holt

Release Date: September 9th 2019 by Helstone Press
Pages: 193
Genres: Adult, Historical, Romance

Waiting for one’s fiancé to set a date is never fun. Especially when it has now officially been years. Particularly when one is a veritable wallflower with little chance of anything better coming along. More so when said fiancé’s brother is paying particular attention to one’s life and causing all sorts of confusing emotions. 

All Miss Augusta Snow wants is for Henry to return home and set the date. If that means trying as hard as she can to break out of her quiet temperament to gain his attention, then she’ll do her best. 

But it seems she’s attracted the wrong brother’s attention… 

The brooding Miles Stanton, Viscount Ashwick has always been quietly fascinating to her. She knows he was a little less than a gentleman in his past but she cannot help be intrigued now that he is showing interest in her wellbeing. 

He only intended to protect his brother’s interests… 

Miles always had a soft spot for Gus. However, everyone knew she was meant for his brother and all he wants is for her to be happy—especially with the specters of his past hanging over him and guaranteeing to bring trouble. He has to protect Augusta from doing something silly and somehow persuade Evan to cease being a fool and return home. 

All the while ignoring his feelings for her… 

Augusta’s plans to show Henry that she is not just some dull wallflower seemed doomed to fail and now Miles is back in her life and behaving…well…strangely. She cannot help but wonder if she has been hanging her hopes on the wrong brother this whole time. 


Only 99¢!

They strolled in silence for a while. A gentle breeze brushed the ribbons of her bonnet, sending them curling around her face. She swept them aside with a little annoyed grunt and Miles tucked his hands behind his back to resist the temptation of sorting them out for her. When they came to where the path branched off and too far away from the party for their time together to be proper, Miles stopped. Augusta looked at him expectantly with dark eyes that made him wonder if she could see inside his soul—see quite how dirty and black it was. Though, she should have figured that out by now. There were few good men who would kiss their brother’s fiancé.

“I must apologize for that night...”

She blinked at him. “What night?”

The words hurt, jabbing straight into his heart like a pointed spear. Surely she remembered?

He cleared his throat. “The night where I...uh...kissed you.”

“Oh.”

Her lips formed a lovely ‘o’ shape that made him want to take her face in his hands again and kiss her until he had her knees trembling and her body capitulated to him. Damn it. He shouldn’t have walked this far or taken this long to gather his courage. It would be far too easy to slip off somewhere without anyone noticing. He could dirty her skirts and muss her hair to his heart’s content.

God, he really was a cad.

“Anyway, I wanted you to know that I regret that action. Deeply. You...you are my brother’s fiancé.” His throat tightened over those last words. “Even if you were not, to kiss you like that, in public...it was utterly unacceptable.”

“I see.”

“You do not forgive me?” He shook his head and smiled. “Of course you do not. And I have no right to expect it.” He eyed her. “Gus, how is it you can make a man feel even more heartily ashamed of himself with but two words?”

“I do not mean to make you feel ashamed, I swear it.” She plucked a leaf from a nearby tree and twined it between her fingers, keeping her gaze lowered.

“I think perhaps you take a little pleasure in it.”

She lifted her head. “You tease me!” She flung aside the leaf. “You know I would never take pleasure in such a thing.”

“Perhaps.” He gave a half-smile. “But at least then I get a response from you.”

🌟BOOK BLITZ:🌟 Dope & Diamonds by Natalie Bennett {GIVEAWAY!}




Dope & Diamonds by Natalie Bennett

Release Date: September 10th 2019
Genres: Adult, Romance

Rich.
Immoral.
Elite


His reign. 
Her damnation. 

There are two sides of my city. 
There’s the filthy side--a place brimming with corruption and greed--the rotting carcass of a criminal underworld. 

And then there’s the opulent side—a place of elegance and wealth—home of the elite and heart of that same cruel underbelly. Somewhere I could only dream of living. 

That all changed when D'Angelo Remmington made me his latest acquisition. In the blink of an eye, I went from a street rat to a kingpin’s most prized possession. 

He gave me everything I wanted, but there’s a saying about being careful what you wish for, because you might get everything you’ve been seeking, but nothing in life comes without a cost. 

Now ensnared in a world that is as ugly as it is beautiful, what began as a fairy-tale slowly becomes a bittersweet tragedy of sensuality, violence, betrayal, and unrequited love. 

And in order to survive, I must kill the naïve dreamer I once was, and embrace the vicious woman I’ve been forced to become. 




AUTHOR BIO:


Shameless author of twisted unconventional love stories.

Natalie has a penchant for (writing) villainous immoral men, and tends to deviate away from traditional happily ever afters.

When she isn't slaying words on multiple projects, she's hanging out in the sunshine state with her husband, their three boys, and her pit-bull named Lulu.
