The Line Full Jacket

The Line by Amie Knight

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: May 23rd

I was a thief.

The invisible girl only he could see.

The woman who wanted to be more.

He was the mark.

The extraordinary cowboy who stole my sixteen-year-old heart.

The damaged man who still owned it, even four years later.

The Line was where we began.

Where fates collided.

Where truths derailed.

The place where our love story ends.

Excerpt:

How could it be so damn hot at seven in the morning? I wasn’t sure, but it was. Even in a thin tank, cut-off shorts, and my boots, I was melting. I stood at the top of a ladder Cole had placed against a tree so that we could reach the peaches up top. I used the rubber band on my wrist and tied my hair into a knot at the top of my head, hoping that it helped.

Cole climbed up behind me on the ladder and stood a couple of rungs below, but still, he towered over my small frame.

“Okay?” he asked.

“Yep,” I answered, even though I wasn’t okay. He was so close, and that familiar earthy, smoke smell I loved almost as much as rocky road invaded my senses.

“Good.” He looked at the peaches. “Alrighty. You see the ones that have that pink color?” He motioned to a cluster of fruit in front of us.

I nodded, trying not to breathe in too much. Because Jesus, he smelled delicious.

“Those look ripe and done. The paler ones behind them don’t look ready yet.”

I nodded again, and Cole grabbed my hand. He pressed his fingers in, wrapping both of our hands around a peach. He pushed the tips of his fingers into mine at the top of the fruit, near the stem.

“Feel the give, how it feels soft there?”

I squeezed my fingers around the stem again without his help and said, “Yep. Feels softer there.”

He smiled down at me. “Good. That’s also a sign it’s ripe for picking. But be gentle. They bruise easily.”

Cole’s front pressed closer to my back, and I shivered. The way Cole taught me to do things here was pure torture. It was also outright ecstasy. I lived for these moments as much as I loathed them. Because the man was a damn tease. He’d sent me back to the big house a sweaty, panting mess more times than I could count, my panties drenched.

He gently squeezed our hands around the peach and twisted and pulled. The peach came free, my tiny hand gripped it and his big, rough hand wrapped around mine. He brought our hands to my face and pressed the peach closer to my nose.

“How does it smell?” he asked in my ear.

I wanted to say, “I don’t know. I can’t smell a damn thing but your smoke and leather, and I don’t want to.”

Instead, I closed my eyes. I pressed my nose right up against the peach and concentrated on the smell.

“Sweet,” I said, my eyes still closed.

Our hands moved, and I felt the peach at my lips. My heart hammered and fire raced across my skin, and it had absolutely nothing to do with the weather.

Cole positioned himself even closer, and it seemed, in that moment, that every breath he took sucked up every bit of air in the atmosphere.

My own breath quickened, and a growl rumbled low in Cole’s chest.

“Taste it,” he whispered in my ear, his lips so close that I was sure he could taste me on them.

I opened my mouth and wrapped my lips around the fruit, the fuzzy skin tickling my lips. I bit down, and that rumble I heard from Cole made an appearance again. I moaned as I pressed my teeth to the fruit, the juicy sweetness of the peach sliding over my tongue.

“So good,” I groaned as Cole pulled our hands and the peach back. A little juice rolled down my chin and I attempted to lift my free hand to wipe it.

“I got it,” Cole said, brushing his hand over my chin, slowly picking the juice up with his finger, and ever-so-Goddamn-enticingly placing his finger in his mouth before sucking it clean like it was the best thing he’d ever put in his mouth.

“Delicious,” he said, his hooded eyes on mine as he popped his finger out of his mouth.

And fuck me. I swayed on that ladder, my own eyes closing as I willed my cowboy to kiss me with every breath I took. I made myself only will this about once a day, so I thought I was doing pretty good.

He brought our hands holding the peach to his mouth. He wrapped his mouth around it, his lips brushing my fingers, and I felt it deep in my core. I pressed my thighs together and swallowed a moan.

“Perfect,” he said, staring into my eyes. He held my gaze for a moment more before shaking his head and letting my hand, which was still clasped around the peach, go. Then he stepped off the ladder like he hadn’t just made sweet, sweet love to that peach with his mouth right here in front of me.

I watched him walk off to another tree, place a ladder against it, and climb up like nothing in the world had happened. I kicked the rung of the ladder and turned back to the tree. Damn peach molester.

Blog Tour ~ U-Turn ~ by ~ Leaona Luxx


Title: U-Turn

Series: Highway 17 Series Book Two
Author: Leaona Luxx
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2017
Cover Model: KK Raines 
Cover Designer by: TE Black Designs
 

 



“O.M.G., O.M.G.! Just finished U-Turn. Holy freaking sh*t, I don’t have words at the moment… or breath!!! So I’m pretty sure Leaona Luxx is getting to insert an evil laugh or two at this very moment…”

“I told Lea I wasn’t sure about this book. I wasn’t sure I could read a story about someone I hated sooo much. I should have had faith, she said it was going to be worth it. It was… And more so. I had tears just waterfalling down at the end.”

TROUBLE.

That’s all she is and all she’ll ever be.

What in the hell was I thinking getting involved with her?

Everyone knows her reputation precedes her.

But I’ll be damned if I don’t like it.

Hurricane Ava crashes to shore wreaking havoc, the beautiful disaster she is.

And I love it.

What’s worse, she does too.

So, why am I in love with her? Because, she loves me.
She just doesn’t know it yet.

 


I find myself halfway home when I do a U-turn. I hit the gas, speeding toward Myrtle Beach. My tears fall once again as I think of him leaving and I’m not the last person he sees. I need to be the last thing he sees. The fissure my heart has suffered begins to quake as I pray I make it back to him.

I park at the airport entrance, racing through every checkpoint I can before actually yelling, “He’s leaving. I have to tell him I love him.” The airport officials have mercy on me when I explain he’s a soldier and I’m crazy for him. “He may not make it back, he’s deploying.”

Pointed in the right direction, I sprint to his departure gate. His family standing close by the window, I know then he’s already boarded. I push past several onlookers to the wide expanse of glass standing between us.

I search, switching between his family and the plane, to gauge where he will be. My chest constricts as I get a glimpse of him for the first time in fatigues. He’s breathtaking. As my pride swells, I lay my hand on the window, reaching for him.

I begin to lose hope when his eyes suddenly dart to me. A smile growing on his face as I fight to dry mine. The plane begins to roll, and I follow it, never moving my hand from the clear barrier. When Riley raises his hand, pressing it against the glass, I fall to my knees.

My eyes never leave his face nor does my hand break our connection. I stay there as he taxi’s down the runway and lifts off. Leaving me. I push against the glass with both hands, hoping beyond all things I could break it and run after him.

I sit against the window, clutching my chest as if my heart has fallen from it until Walker picks me up from the floor. He carries me from the building, my life in ashes. Walker sits with me until I regain some semblance of composure. I’m not ever far from plummeting over the edge again.


Leaona, also known as Lea, lives with her husband, cat and two dogs near Myrtle Beach. She was born and raised in WV by her parents whom she adores before attending Marshall University. A small business owner and mother of three, she enjoys Carolina Panthers and Marshall University Football, reading, writing, gardening, crafts, NASCAR, TWD, hot rods, and surf fishing.

Leaona was inspired to write while she raised her family, never dreaming one day, she would be published. While loving all genres of books, Lea writes contemporary romance stories that are not your everyday love stories. Gritty and true to life, she draws from her life and loves to create her characters. 
Leaona’s debut novel will release June 7, 2016. Cherry Grove is the first in The Cove Series. She’s your everyday girl and lives to connect with her fans via social media. Leaona also doesn’t mind dishing about her favorite authors and their books. Beach, life, and love.

Blog Tour ~ Condemned By Him ~ by ~ L.M. Roberts

Title: Condemned by Him
Series: Shattered Hearts Trilogy #1
Author: LM Roberts
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
Release Date: February 24, 2017

 


 

Entangle yourself in the web of sensuality, dominance, and submission!

 


He hunkers down in front of me and lifts my chin with his forefinger. “You know what they say about people having dreams, don’t you?” I barely shake my head from side to side before he lets me in on his little tidbit of information. He smiles, and the emotion doesn’t reach his cold, dead eyes. “They always turn into nightmares.” 

Everly
Her life could only be described as one thing. Perfect. She was beloved by all and had everything that she ever wanted. Or did she? She’s due for her weekly hangout session with dear ol’ Pops when all of a sudden there’s a knock on the front door. Well, who could that be? Was it Dad forgetting his keys? Dad drunk off his rocker? Instead of Dad, she came face-to-face with a man as sinfully gorgeous as a piece of dark chocolate would be to a model – dark hair, impossibly dark eyes, and a body made of pure freaking perfection. Her breath caught in her lungs and instant fear raced up her spine. She had no idea what this man – one who could make even the hardest, coldest women swoon – was there for.

To take her. Own her. And condemn her.

Talon
Otherwise known as Sir or Big and Mighty – is a man who goes above and beyond to get what he wants. Having a rough start in life, he only wants to do one thing – to change one thing – his future. After doing a job for Richard “Dick” Thompson, the only form of payment he wants is – her. Working outside the law had its perks and she was the perkiest of them all – medium height, long dark brown hair, and captivating eyes that seemed to look right into his dark, dead, cold heart. His “edge” begins to soften when he’s near her – becoming weaker, tamer. He can’t let that happen. He needs to keep his mask firmly in place so those around him still see him as the badass-take-no-shit-hardest-motherfucker around. But it’s hard. Man, is it hard. His feelings and actions toward her begin to change. But, it’s too late.

Everly was condemned by him. But he was consumed by her.

Will Talon be able to see what’s right in front of him? Will Everly be able to hide the most important part of herself?

Only time, and a little pain will tell.


Bestselling author L.M. Roberts is a mother of two, completely obsessed with her darling husband of almost nine years, and is a cat mommy to a feisty little tabby named, Mellow, that acts like he’s the shit.

Besides working her dreaded day job, looking after her family, and attending college full-time to obtain her bachelor’s degree, she enjoys getting lost in her imagination, coming up with tantalizing, steamy, and just pretty much over-the-top romance novels for her readers to devour.

Blog Tour & Review ~ Emilia (Part 1) ~ by ~ Lisa Cardiff

Title: Emilia: Part One
Series: Trassato Crime #3
Author: Lisa Cardiff
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: May 16, 2017
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Freedom and a meaningful life away from the violence of the Trassato Crime Family is all I ever wanted…

But what I want doesn’t matter now that I’m caught in a tug of war between two men in the dangerous world of organized crime.

Marcello Masciantonio is the man my father expects me to marry. He wants me because I’m the daughter of Dominick Trassato, New York’s most powerful crime boss. He says he’s my future, and I want to hate him, but I can’t deny the spark that burns between us. 

Salvatore D’Amico is perfect. He supports me. He understands me. He’s willing to betray my father and give up his family to have me. He doesn’t care about the power that comes with being part of my family. He wants me for me. 

My choice is simple, right? 

Wrong. 

Everyone has an agenda, including Salvatore and Marcello, and just when I think I have everything figured out, I realize I don’t know a damn thing. 

Truths are lies. Freedom is lonely. But worst of all…

My love triangle is actually a hate triangle.

Amazon Review – “Lisa has given us Another 5 Star Story with her continuation of the Trassato crime family.”

First off, I LOVE Lisa Cardiff books! I started reading her Vegas Cartel series (if you haven’t read it? GO DO IT!!!) and fell. She can write the hell out of a mafia book. Plus all the different languages and bilingual terms of endearment ❤ ❤ .  
Granted, most might find the whole killing/robbing for hire, etc distasteful but you still love the characters. Typically, they’re the people who want to get out of the life or have a conscientious about it.  
Now on to Emilia. Oh Emilia. She didn’t want to be the head of the Italian mafia’s daughter and she certainly does not want to have an arranged marriage with a man who she’s never met and only wants to expand his mafia power. She’s locked away in her father’s house, no longer allowed to go to her only form of sanity, piano lessons. She’s escorted everywhere by Sal, hot captain under her father who is attracted to her. But then there’s Marcello, the man she’s promised to, who revs her engine too. She just doesn’t know who or what she can trust.  
Ends on a cliffhanger – of sorts – but it is part 1. So now I need Part 2 STAT!!! I got wrapped up in Emilia’s story (possibly reading at work…) and now I need the rest!!
5 stars! 
After spending years practicing law and running a real estate development company with her husband, Lisa decided to pursue her dream of becoming a writer and she must confess that inventing characters is so much more fun than writing contracts and legal briefs. A native of Colorado, she lives with her husband and three children in Denver.

Blog Tour ~ Love In Silence ~ by ~ Brie Mitchell

Title: Love in Silence
Author: Brie Mitchell
Genre: Romance
Release Date: March 31, 2017

 

Summer finally accomplishes her dream of moving to a coastal town in North Carolina. She has instant chemistry with her next door neighbor, Jamie. With a past she’s desperately trying to escape, a relationship is the furthest thing from her mind.

Jamie quickly finds himself head over heels for new neighbor, Summer, but has somehow become just a close friend. Told through the voices of both Summer and Jamie, will Jamie be able to get through her brick wall of friendship? Will he be able to wait for her? Will Summer’s past catch up with her and destroy any chance of happiness she is so desperately seeking?

 

I grip the steering wheel tightly. I’m not doing this. I only have a couple friends here, literally. He seems like someone I could really get along well with. We could become good friends. I close my eyes at the red light for a split second, then snap them back open.
I’ve made up my mind. I make a silent vow to myself, I am done letting my thoughts drift to Jamie in such a manner.
“Jamie, whatever your long ass, Italian last name is,” I sternly say aloud, “you have officially entered the friend zone.”

 

 

 

Brie lives in Ohio with her husband, two children, and dog, Raja. She loves reading and has enjoyed writing since she was a little girl. She enjoys being active, but you can usually find a few cartons of ice cream at her house. Brie is currently a sonographer at a local hospital.

“No, no!” He shakes his head repeatedly. “I gave you all the time you needed. You should have realized by now we were meant to be together. And I come over here and what do I see? You hugging and kissing all over some asshole.” He vigorously shoves his free hand through his hair. “Do you know how that made me feel? This shit ends now,” he screams, his eyes darkening.

 

He lunges toward me with his gun pointing at my face. I scream for help as loudly as I can, “Jam—”
Everything goes black.
