Bewitching Sloth


Title: Bewitching Sloth
Series: Seven Deadly Series #1
Author: Michelle Gross
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2018



Reapers are the peacekeepers—the balancers of life and death, good and evil.
 They’re the police of the Underworld in a way. They keep both worlds balanced just enough so that the King of the Underworld can never escape his prison. 

For the day his reign stretches into the human world, all things good will come to an end. 

This is the story of a dark king who cursed seven siblings with sins, and how far those seven went to protect both worlds from the end of days when an old entity challenged the Dark One’s very reign. 

Isabella Wen has spent the last decade in the human world hiding from the one that turned her touch deadly, made her body a weapon for his own gain.

Sebastian Reaper—bearer of the sin of sloth and the eldest son of the revered Grim Reaper—has spent his entire life fighting to stay awake because of his curse.

When the witch finds the sleepy sloth passed out in the human hospital, they touch and sparks fly. Her touch should have hurt him. Instead, it’s the one thing he’s after.

She thinks her darkness is her undoing. He thinks she’s his cure.

When her past and her future collide, he must choose between duty and heart.

The world or her?

Each book in the series is about a different sibling and their sin, so the romance has an ending in each book. As for the storyline, it’s just getting started



Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.

As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.

The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.

The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.

The Best Man


Title: The Best Man: A Novel
Author: Kat Tammen
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 9, 2018
Cover Credits: Jada D'Lee Designs



Emelia Sullivan and Andy Dalton have been friends since they were five years old—the day his family moved in to the house next door. Connected by bedroom windows that faced each other and a treehouse they shared in the backyard, the two became lifelong best friends. Emelia loved Andy with all her heart.

But not like she loved his older brother, Samuel.
Tall, handsome, and the absolute best at everything he ever did, Samuel Dalton captured Emelia’s heart without even trying. He was her first, and longest-lasting, crush.

Children grow up and move away from home. With effort, some ties are strengthened by time. Some are frayed, on the verge of breaking.

For Emelia, coming home to see Andy over summer break is easy. Finding out Samuel is home for the summer too, however, provides a challenge she is determined to overcome. Will a friendly competition for the title of “Best Man” help Samuel see Emelia is not the same little girl he left behind years ago?

No matter how long she’s been away, home is the place Emelia can count on, where everything always stays the same.

Until it all changes.





Andy and I spent our days together playing, planning grand adventures, and chasing his older brother around. Samuel.

Ah. Samuel Dalton.

Whereas Andy had yellow hair and blue eyes like his parents, Samuel was different. His hair was darker, like chocolate dusted with just a little cinnamon at the ends, thick and straight, and always sticking up in a way that dared his mother to try to tame it with licked fingertips. Long, dark lashes curtained his golden-brown eyes that never failed to light with a smile a second or two before his mouth caught on to the notion. He was almost five years older than Andy and me, and very tall for his age. He was also kind and sweet and smart…and the prettiest boy I’d ever seen. I asked Joy once, why Andy looked so much like her but Samuel did not. She told me then that Samuel had been adopted. When I asked her what that meant, Joy said, “It means that even if he doesn’t have my hair or my eyes…he most certainly has my heart.”

I guess I decided he could have my heart too. Samuel Dalton was my very first crush.

SYNOPSIS REVEAL


A shadow meets the light …

When someone needs to disappear, the Chicago mob calls on Joe Rossi. A man who can move without a sound, and kill without a word, they don’t call him the Shadow for nothing.

This time, it’s a New York crime family in need of his skills, but it takes one glimpse of her to make him agree to the job.

Liliana Marcello is every inch a principessa della mafia. Her life has taught her to be wary of strangers, yet her ballet career contradicts everything by putting her on display.

It’s a man with a dark smile and a constantly changing demeanor that makes her feel safe again, but it’s the unknown that holds her back.

It takes one look … One dance … One word … One smile to captivate a man.

And one second to kill a woman because of it, too.

Not all monsters hide in the shadows. How are you supposed to see them coming?

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT

Shoving the phone back in her pocket, she headed out of the bathroom, and damn near crashed into what felt like a fucking brick wall the second she left the room. Liliana couldn’t have caught herself from falling even if she tried. For all her balance, strength, and grace … none of it helped very much when she ran headfirst into something as unexpected as— “Careful there,” came a dark, rich voice. Like a bass rumbled with his words. Like a melody colored up his chuckles. A strong arm had caught her easily—just one, it seemed he didn’t need two—and righted Liliana to her feet probably before she even realized what had happened. Pushing her wild waves of dark blonde hair back out of her face, she blinked. And came face to face with him. The mysterious man from earlier in the driveway. He was not quite the same as he had been earlier, though. Getting a closer—really up close and personal, considering how she was balancing herself by putting her palms to his chest, and was close enough to feel his warm mint-scented breath wash over her face—look at him was bad for her insides. Bad, because he was gorgeous. More so than she realized. Bad, because her stomach clenched, and her palms felt sweaty already. For a second, she tried to make her voice work, but nothing came. The dark lines of the man’s face were shadowed by the hall, but it only added to the appeal of his square-cut jaw, strong cheekbones, and inviting grin. He was taller than her five foot eleven by at least six inches or more. She had to wonder if he played football, or rugby, because under her fingertips, his chiseled-from-stone muscles jumped from her touch. Jesus. “You okay?” he asked. Liliana nodded quickly. “Yeah, sure.” “It’s Liliana, right?” She blinked. He grinned deeper. Right?” he pressed. “Liliana, yeah, but if you call me Lily, I’ll probably gut you.” Might as well get that right out in the open and over with. She expected a bit of surprise in the man’s eyes at her warning, but he actually tipped his head back and laughed. And sweet Christ, that laugh of his was dangerous. The sound made her breath catch. The sight made her heart race. “Good to know,” he said. Laughter echoed from down the hall—her cousin, sister, and friends voices followed right after. Conversation about the movie they wanted to pick, or something like that. It didn’t really matter. “Ah, that’s what I was trying to find,” the guy said. Liliana’s brow dipped. “Pardon?” “I heard noise, but this place is so big that I couldn’t find out what it was or where it was coming from. I think I got lost.” She pressed her lips together to keep from smiling. “Well, the mansion is pretty big.” Liliana had a good mind to ask him what exactly he was doing at her grandparents’ mansion, and why she had caught sight of her father and uncles waiting for him and the other man before she left with the girls. She didn’t ask any of that because if the guy was in any way connected to her father and uncles’ business in the mafia, he probably wouldn’t tell her anyway. Besides, sometimes it was better not to know. That’s what life as a Marcello principessa had taught Liliana. It was also pretty quick to teach her that even men who weren’t connected to the life were their own particular brand of dangerous when it came right down to it. “I bet your friends are wondering where you are,” he said. It was only then that Liliana realized how close and alone the two were in the dark hallway. Sure, someone might hear her shout if she needed to, but none of that had even factored in to her usual cautiousness. In fact, the last thing she felt in that moment was unsafe. “They probably are,” she agreed. “Would you do me a favor first?” “Shoot.” He cocked a brow, and shrugged one large shoulder like it wasn’t a big deal before he said, “Give me directions to the downstairs—I don’t want to miss supper later. I hear that’s rude, and I’m going to be around for a while. I would hate to make a bad first impression and all.” Liliana laughed, but not for the reason he probably thought. The last thing he did was make a bad first impression. Far from it.

I had it all. Two beautiful children. A gainfully employed husband. A successful food blog.

The only thing missing from my life was . . . heat.

And I wanted to live. To live loudly and without fear.

I also wanted my husband to think I was as hot as I was when we were high school sweethearts. More, I wanted what my sister had: love, passion, and a husband whose love was infinite.

Because something was happening with Rob. Had he fallen out of love with me? Had he found someone else? Was I not—

Sigh.

Was I not enough?

Disaster at Roosevelt Ranch
Release Date: December 13, 2016



I slept with the wrong twin.

And all I got for it in return was a broken heart.

Oh yeah, and a baby on the way—there’s that too.

But I’m determined to make it on my own. I don’t need a man, thank you very much. Not rich, charismatic, and decidedly flighty Rex Roosevelt, and especially not his twin brother, Justin.

No matter that the gorgeous former military doctor makes my heart beat a little faster . . . and all spots lower than that pay careful, careful attention.

None of that matters. The Roosevelt men are dangerous and I’m steering clear.

The trouble is, Justin refuses to leave me be.

And deep down, I don’t want to avoid him.

Deep down, I want to be even closer.

Excerpt

“Gemm-maaa.” Hunter teased. “You were moaning and muttering our names in your slee-eeep. Sounded hot. Want to tell us what you were dreaming about?”
Gemma’s breath hitched, and her eyes shot open. Two pairs of eyes beamed down at her—Hunter’s azure and Kyle’s espresso. Both guys had smiles as wide as the Brooklyn Bridge. They exchanged a quick glance, then burst out laughing.
Shit.
“Did you have a wet dream, Gem? About us?” Hunter bobbed his head in a slow, rhythmic motion and gave her a you’ve-been-so-busted kind of grin.
Heat rushed up Gemma’s neck. Knots clenched in her stomach.
They’d heard.
They’d seen.
Shit. Shit. Shit.
She sat up, tugging her bra back into place. Damn thing never stayed put. Not when she barely filled an A-cup. “You wish,” she snapped, unable to look either of them in the eye. “As if I’d ever have a dream, wet or otherwise, about you two idiots. That would be more like a nightmare.”
But she was lying. To herself. To Kyle and Hunter. Her two best friends in the world.
“Here. This will help you wake up, if nothing else.” Kyle handed her a takeaway coffee. “Latte, just the way you like it.”
Gemma took a sip, savoring the dash of cinnamon topping. “Thanks.” But she was in more need of a bucket of ice thrown over her right now than a hot, delicious, belly-warming latte.
“Do you need to go change your panties?” The glint in Hunter’s eyes sparkled.
“What?” She threw him her most evil stare. “Don’t be ridiculous.” The guys could tease her all they wanted. She wouldn’t let them get to her. It was just another stupid dream.
“I could help you if you want?” Hunter held out his hand, but she slapped it away.
Kyle elbowed Hunter in the arm. “Okay, dude. Enough.”
Shaking her head, she jumped to her feet. On her way past Hunter, she rammed her shoulder into his arm and stormed out of the dressing room.
Chin up, she strode along the concrete corridor and owned it like she was live on center stage. There was no way she’d let the guys know her whole body was on fire. Sipping on her latte, she attempted to wash away the images that flickered through her mind. But it was impossible. With each step, her heart thudded, causing the ache that resided there to flare. Each breath sent a shudder through her entire system.
She had a problem.
A huge problem.
She’d tried to suppress it, hide it, deny it for months, but it grew stronger and stronger every day.
She was, without a doubt, in love with Hunter.
But he was a playboy. He’d never commit. She didn’t want to clock up another failed relationship to rival her mother’s long list.
She straightened her shoulders and kept putting one foot in front of the other. She had one more show to get through, then she had two weeks’ vacation away from the guys. Surely, time apart would put an end to her wild dreams.
The first dream she’d had about Hunter had been funny, the next few rattling, but after four months of them occurring every few days, enough was enough.
There would be no more fantasies involving him. No more ogling. No more dreaming about his hot body, kisses, and oh, the sex. No more concocting what-if scenarios. Because music was all that mattered. With a new record to work on and a fully booked schedule, she wouldn’t gamble with the dynamic bond she shared with the guys. Their journey to fame had bound them together. She wasn’t going to fuck that up for anyone or anything. Not even her heart.
She had to fix this.
It was driving her crazy.
Hiding her feelings for Hunter had become an exhausting obsession. She had to find a way to stamp them out. Because she remembered all too well what it was like to be hurt, betrayed, and let down. First, by her father, then her ex-boyfriend, and always, always, always, her mother.
