🌟BOOK BLITZ:🌟 Not Her Gargoyle by Annie Nicholas {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}




Not Her Gargoyle by Annie Nicholas

Release Date: June 18th 2018 by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Series: Not This #4
Pages: 229
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Ruby is done with jerks, dead-end jobs, and eviction notices. Everyone else she knows is finding ways out of this crappy neighborhood, so why can’t she? Since opportunities refuse to fall from the sky, Ruby makes her own. To hell with the little voice in her heart whispering about love. She never met a man she wanted to keep… then she met a gargoyle. Men were boring after all.

Nick was a con, a thief, and a rogue. He couldn’t keep a dime in his pocket even if it was glued. Then he met a ruby. Not one from the earth but one of flesh and blood. And ass. Let’s not forget the ass. Stealing her heart was now all he wanted.

He has a plan that could make both their dreams come true. It only involves an itsy-bitsy risk. All they must do is rob a witch.

Oh, and avoid the dragons.

His mouth tipped up at one corner into a sultry smile. The kind that made women drop their panties. The kind that turned Ruby’s knees into jelly. “Really?” he asked as he strode forward. He looked like an animal, sleek and sensuous. Shoulders rolling as he moved.

She might have ovulated. Her back hit the wall and only then did she realize her retreat. When had she backed down to a man? Sexual control was her super power. The only one she’d owned. Nick changed everything.

He didn’t stop his advance until they were almost touching, and then he braced a hand against the wall by her head. She wouldn’t have minded if he blocked her in. His shorts would drop to the floor again, but hey, sacrifices could be made.

“I want to taste you.” His voice caused a rush of heat over her skin. He waited for her to make the first move.

Her every breath jagged, her heart out of sync, she rested her hands on his shoulders. Strong and muscled and dangerous. The hunger in her veins no longer an empty desperation for human contact, but a hotter, deeper ache. Her lips parted under the hard demand of his mouth.


Even in his human form, Nick loomed over her. There was no doubting his power, but he didn’t trigger any fear. Not like some of her former partners. Until Nick, she hadn’t understood how a woman would want to possess a man. Now the rage of it was an inferno in her blood.

🌟BLOG TOUR:🌟 The Crown Princess by Kathleen Samuels {REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!}




The Crown Princess by Kathleen Samuels

Release Date: June 13th 2018 by Soul Mate Publishing, LLC
Series: The Royals of Cordova Book 1
Genres: Romance, Contemporary

Dependable Crown Princess of Cordova, Gwen, is dreading the day she gives up her life for her country. With the day of coronation looming, Gwen decides to make a bucket list of crazy things she wants to do before the big day. Taking her list, she travels to Las Vegas, a place where no one will question wild behavior and she can be just another normal person on vacation in Sin City. Enlisting the help of Alex, a notorious entitled playboy, she finds herself checking off more than just the items on the list. 

Is she willing to risk it all and take a chance at falling in love? 

Fiercely independent Alex, the black sheep of his family, was raised in the hotel business. Breaking out on his own, he built a successful Resort and Casino on the strip in Las Vegas. When Gwen asks for Alex’s help on completing her list of ‘bad girl’ activities, he readily accepts. Who else knows how to let loose but the Billionaire Playboy himself? 

But as he starts helping her with the list, he begins to realize that this Princess might be worth trading in his ‘bad boy’ image.


Purchase: Amazon

My Review:

From the pretty cover to the interesting synopsis, The Crown Princess was such a great read that will definitely leave you wanting for more. Being the first book in The Royals of Cordova series, we are introduced to the family and a bit of the interactions that they have with each other. 

At the beginning of the story we are introduced to Princess Gwendolyn (Gwen) as she takes on a new role in her life after finding out that she is going to become Queen of Cordova one day. It was definitely not by choice, but her older brothers have made themselves happy by going after their dreams. Gwen on the other hand feels that it’s her job now to take on this new role in her life. Cordova is a small country between the Netherlands and Germany, so this leaves her without much to do. She has been the perfect child growing up and never got in trouble, while her siblings got wild and experienced the world without her. This has made Gwen rethink about her choices and before she becomes queen she wants to do things that she will never get to experience again. That’s when one of her brother’s suggest for her to leave the country and she happens to have an upcoming event in Las Vegas, so what could go wrong in sin city? 

As the son of the owner of the prestigious Titan Hotels, Alex Titan was expected to follow his father’s footsteps and be part of the family business. But it was his womanizing ways that got him in trouble for landing on various headlines around the city that his didn’t like. Needless to say, Alex parted ways with the family business and built his own luxurious casino resort, The Crown, that has made him a success. But he wants to expand the business and with the help of his trusted friend, Cooper, Alex wants to make sure he lands the deal before his father does. But he wasn’t expecting to meet Cooper’s mysterious friend at his house and their attraction is instant. They chemistry from the very beginning and as the two start to spend time together, Gwen tells him about the list that she created of all the things she wants to do before she goes back home. So he helps her and he starts realize just how well they fit with each other and he wants to see if they can start a relationship. But there are things that she keeps from him and when the truth comes out they’ll have to decide if they want to create a future together or not.

I very much enjoyed reading The Crown Princess, it was romantic and fun to read. As a dual POV story, we get to see both perspectives and understand the decisions that the characters made throughout the story. Alex was such a swoon character, he was protective and attentive towards Gwen that will leave your heart melting. What I didn’t like as much was how quickly the story rushed to end. I wish the author could have developed the characters better or at least written an extended ending. But it all works out in the end and if you’re looking for a short and sweet book then I would highly recommend reading this book :)

My Rating:

Flicka von Hannover was a princess, but not anymore, sort of. To hide from her conniving soon-to-be ex-husband and divorce him as soon as possible, she runs to the place specified by her prenuptial agreement, Las Vegas.

But her ex knows that she has to file the paperwork to divorce him, and he’ll do anything to stop her, even mounting an assault with his army on the courthouse when she tries to go to court.

{EXCERPT}

Princess Flicka von Hannover spun through the casino, taking orders and delivering drinks.

Bastien the Swiss guy, again. He ordered a Weizenbier, as he alternated those with his top-shelf martinis, and Flicka typed it into her screen.

Just as she was getting ready to wink at him and flounce off to her next ten-second interaction, Bastien glanced over her shoulder. His face stilled, and he didn’t move.

She looked behind herself.

Six men threaded through the crowd toward them. All wore dark suits. All were looking intently in her direction. The closest was on the other side of a blackjack table and rounding it fast.

Flicka ran.

Her tray crashed to the floor behind her.

People hollered at the spill and noise.

Dieter was at the table ahead of her, and she sprinted toward him.

He looked up and was already sliding off the barstool seat as she got to him. He grabbed her arm as she passed, pushing her ahead of him, and they ran for the kitchen doors at the back as they had planned.

Flicka risked a quick glance back.

All of the black-suited men were chasing them, but they weren’t dodging through the crowd as quickly as she and Dieter were.

They crashed through the swinging door and pounded down a hallway toward a door that led to another back hallway.

When they reached it, Flicka slammed her palms against the crash bar, but it didn’t budge.

She hit it again. Nothing. “It’s locked.”
