COVER REVEAL+ GIVEAWAY: Cowboy Dreams by Kasey Millstead

Title: Cowboy Dreams
Series: Down Under Cowboy #3
Author: Kasey Millstead
Cover Design: Cover It Designs
 Release Date: June 2014 

My decision for moving from Sydney, NSW, to Pine Creek NT, was purely selfish...to begin with.

My best friend, Edie, had gone off on an adventure to find herself, and instead she'd found the love of her life. Not wanting to be left behind, I decided to follow her. I made this choice for a few reasons. First, I didn't want to be without my best friend. Second, I'd slept with my boss, and trust me, once that happens, shit just gets awkward! And third, on a visit with Edie, I'd met a man.

Clay Forde.

A hunk of Aussie, crocodile egg collecting, cowboy, badass, hotness.

We had a one-night stand...and then another one when I visited again.

Then, I found out I was pregnant. 

So now, moving to the Northern Territory wasn't just about me escaping the awkwardness at work, or tagging along with my best friend. It was about developing a relationship with a man I hardly knew, who I was about to have a baby with.

I'm loathe to admit it, but I'm scared and I'm nervous. But most of all, I'm petrified he's going to reject me. Because even though our "relationship" so far has been limited to two sexual encounters, I can't help the feelings that have taken root in my bones...feelings for Clay. And the worst part is, I don't even know if he feels an inkling of what I do.

COVER REVEAL + GIVEAWAY: Greetings From Sugartown (Sugartown #2.5) by Carmen Jenner


Book Title: Greetings From Sugartown (Sugartown #2.5)
Author: Carmen Jenner
Publisher: Independent
Genre: Contemporary New Adult
Release Date: August 2014
Cover Designer: Cover It! Designs

Life in Sugartown hasn’t always been easy, not for an ex-con like Elijah, and certainly not for Ana, who grew up desperate for a way out. Meeting Elijah changed all that; Elijah changed a lot of things. You’d think that after three years together and the worst behind them that life would be a walk in the park, but Sugartown’s sexiest couple may be about to face their biggest obstacles yet. Between failed marriage proposals, a trampy ex-lover and a tempting new biker, Sugartown is suddenly not so sweet. They’re head-over-heels in love. It should be simple—but it rarely is. Will they make it down the aisle to the happy ever after they deserve? Or are some relationships just destined to fail?   


6547659Carmen Jenner is a thirty-something, USA TODAY Best Selling Author, doctor, pilot and CIA agent. She's also a compulsive, flagrant prevaricator who gets to make things up for a living. While Sugartown may not technically exist, Carmen grew up in a small Australian town just like it, and just like her characters, she always longed for something more. They didn't have an Elijah Cade, though. If they did, you can be sure she would have never left.

RELEASE DAY EXCERPT EVENT: The Devil’s Contract by Claire Contreras

It’s release day for THE DEVIL’S CONTRACT by Claire Contreras! We have an excerpt to share with you today, but we are the final stop of the excerpt chain, so if you haven’t read the rest of the excerpt, stop here and go back. The group’s are listed below.

Author: Claire Contreras
Age group: Adult
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber


He gave them a choice.

She took it.

He made her promise two years.

She should have known there was a catch.

“Philip has agreed to employ you in his company, PB Marketing.”
            Amara’s eyes widened with recognition, and Vivienne gave her a toothy, wicked smile, like she was in on some joke that Amara was oblivious to.
            “When you move back to the States, you will be offered a job in PB Manhattan. Of course, you will not be compensated for your work there. You must understand…”
            Amara understood clearly where this was going. They were going to use her until she paid back every cent her father owed them.
            “What will happen to my parents if I don’t sign?”
            Vivienne shrugged. “It’s not something I would know. That’s Philip’s business. I will say, your family name is very well known, Amara. Not just your father’s, but your mother’s as well. Philip can tarnish everything. He doesn’t…how is it you say…stick all his eggs in one basket. Philip is everywhere.”
            Amara’s jaw tightened. She knew how much weight her last name had and how much more would be lost if she didn’t do as she was told. 
            “I have a couple of conditions in regards to my father…”
            Vivienne smiled. “Very much like your grandfather, I see?”
            Her words took Amara by surprise. She had only met her grandfather a handful of times since she was a baby. Her mother wasn’t on speaking terms with him after their falling out when Amara was a child, and the comparison wasn’t something that bode well with her. She never wanted to be in the same sentence as the sultan.
            “How do you know my grandfather?”
            “Oh, I don’t know him personally. I only know of him. Many people do, I suppose,” Vivienne said flippantly.
            Amara stared at Vivienne for a long moment before taking the pen from the table. “Where do I sign?”
            She signed on every dotted line she was told, and knew that, in that moment, she’d sealed her fate with the devil.

About the Author:

BLOG TOUR + EXCERPT: Mended by Kim Karr

Music has the power to heal, but not all broken hearts can be mended.

Always in control, Xander Wilde considered life on the road to be a perfect fit for him. But when disaster strikes on the band’s latest tour, fate intervenes…and a newly single Ivy Taylor, the only girl he has ever loved, steps back into his life.

After moving past her painful breakup with Xander years ago, Ivy was poised to become the next big name in music…when suddenly she withdrew from the limelight—the same day she announced her engagement to her controlling agent, Damon Wolf.

Xander knows he should keep his distance. But once they’re on the road, he can’t resist pursuing her for a second chance. Yet a jealous Damon can’t let her go—and he’s keeping dangerous secrets that could destroy them all. 

When the three of them come together, everything falls apart. But if Xander and Ivy can hold tight to the bond that connects them, they just might have a chance to reclaim the powerful love they thought they had lost forever....

RELEASE DAY BLITZ + GIVEAWAY: Four Score by Lili St Germain

Four Score Banner

Title: Four Score (Gypsy Brothers,#4)
Author: Lili St. Germain
Release Date: May 26, 2014


Love and hate aren’t all that different.

Two sides of the same coin, the yin and the yang.

Once upon a time, Jason Ross loved me. And now that he knows what I’ve done, I see the love and the hate warring within him.

I see the way he looks at me.

The way he wonders how I could do the things I’ve done.

I hear it in the way he begs me to stop, to leave this life and run away with him.

But there’s only one way I’m leaving LA.

And that’ll be when Dornan and the rest of his sons are dead and buried.

Jase might forgive me for what I’ve done.

But will he forgive me for the crimes I’m yet to commit?
