Author: Hazel Grace
Genre: Dark Romance/Suspense
Release Date: September 1, 2020

 

Blurb
The monster hiding in the shadows is real.
He doesn’t have horns or sharp claws, but a deep scowl, piercing hazel eyes,
and a bunker deep in the woods equipped for his fantasies to play out like a
horror movie.
And it becomes my reality in seconds.
My captor is out for retribution, and he thinks I’m to blame. He believes I’m
the evil that shrouded his world and tipped it upside down.
Hate isn’t enough of a word for what he feels for me, and while he terrifies
me, I mask my pain as best as I can.
A pointless feat because he feels my discomfort, revels in it.
And yet in the midst of his hell, I can’t seem to miss the way those eyes burn
with hunger.
The kind that involves him devouring me with his tongue and teeth.
Emric is the beast in my darkest nightmares.
Until he realized that his reality is a blurred screen of the truth—mine.

Excerpt

 

She’s obviously conceived ideas that I’m going to weaken and
go easier on her, maybe let her go. The conundrum is that I don’t play with my
mark. 
I can imagine it, dream it, eye-fuck it, but I won’t touch
it.

The Anti-Boyfriend by Penelope Ward @PenelopeAuthor @givemebookspr


 

Title: The Anti-Boyfriend
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 31, 2020

 

Blurb

 

From New York Times bestselling author
Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
At first,
my neighbor Deacon frustrated me.
Sure, he
was great-looking and friendly.
But our
walls were thin, and on occasion, he’d bring women to his place and keep me
awake while he “entertained” them.
As a single
mother to an infant, I didn’t appreciate it.
So, finally
it was my turn.
When my
daughter wouldn’t stop wailing one night, Mr. Manwhore came knocking on my
door.

Miraculously,
at the sound of his voice, Sunny stopped crying. And when he held her…she
eventually fell asleep in his arms.
Deacon was
rough on the exterior, but apparently on the inside? Mr.
Single-and-Ready-to-Mingle was a baby whisperer.
After that
night, we became friends.
He’d go for
coffee runs. Come over to chat. Normal friend stuff.
But over
time, our conversations ran deeper. We got closer.
Until one
night we crossed the line.
Our
friendship turned into a complicated mess.
I’d gone
and fallen for a guy who’d sworn off commitment and kids.
I knew
Deacon was starting to care for me too, even though Sunny and I didn’t fit into
any plan he’d ever imagined for himself.
He was
wrong for me—so wrong that I’d dubbed him the “anti-boyfriend.”
Then why
did I wish more than anything that I could be the one woman to change him?

twenty-year sabbatical (and has the bumps and bruises to prove it). She lives

the room, and then declare they have a new FBB (forever book boyfriend).

I’m rock hard.

No, not like that.
When that happens, you won’t need me to tell you.

It’s all about the tan.

She’s also his sister.
So when the craptastic tan I’m given for my first competition requires
an emergency patch, Frank knows exactly who to call.
 
The thing is, when Camryn’s hands hit my skin, more than a few muscles
spring to life.
 
I’m about to head on stage in the tiniest Speedo imaginable and parts
of me no longer fit.
What I need to do for my friendship and my future on the circuit is to
walk away.
But when Camryn’s got her hands on my hard body, there’s no way this
Pickle is going to get anything but hot.

Excerpt

 

Camryn waits for me to shed my pants. I almost trip over them, anxious
and unsure. She’s getting to me. I toss them on the floor with my bag and hold
out my arms.
“Tell me the damage.”
Camryn makes a slow walk around me, tapping the end of a makeup brush
against her cheek.
“You smeared the color here when you put on your trunks. You should
always wear them for your final day tan to avoid this.” Her hand smooths
something low on my ass, and everything in my body goes warm.
My eyes blink shut, and I try to concentrate on something other than her
touch. I run through my bodybuilding poses, picturing myself on the stage.
Something bonks my nose, and I open my eyes to see Camryn standing there
again. “I have your back acceptable. You shouldn’t lose any points.”
Before I can even get in a thank you, the end of her brush pokes my
chest. “But we have to do something about these abs. You have a light patch
just below your navel in the critical area from belly button to…”
She hesitates. “Below.”
I don’t know what she was going to call it, but apparently it’s a word
she doesn’t want to use around me.
I can’t stifle my grin. “You saying my happy trail is too bright?”
She rolls her eyes. “I’m saying the lack of consistent color won’t do you
any favors with the judges.”
“Do with me what you must.”
Okay, now hold up.
I have to pause the story here.
Because this, my friend, is where Camryn gets on her knees in front of my
junk, a tube in her hand.
And things get really awkward.

A football player, a secret crush, and the Hail Mary text
that would change everything…

Avery had no idea who the mystery text came from, but she owed them
a thank you. Because of their message, she showed up at a party for the
football team and caught her boyfriend cheating. But the messages don’t stop
there. Whoever the person she nicknamed Titan truly was, they offered her
support and friendship when Avery needed it most. Now, she finds herself
longing to meet her hero face-to-face.

Denver isn’t sure if Avery even remembers the kiss they shared
freshman year, but he’s thought about it every day since. As much as he wanted
to be with her, family obligations pulled him away. It was torture watching her
date another member of his football team, yet he never would have intervened if
they were happy. One thing he wouldn’t do was stand back and watch as his buddy
cheats on her time and again. When it’s revealed that he is her mysterious
Titan, Denver prays it will be the beginning of his second chance.

But his family responsibilities haven’t lessened. And her trust in football
players has been destroyed. Can the pair score a touchdown into their
happily-ever-after under the scrutiny of the stadium lights?

This is a Steamy, Small Town, College Football Romance. No Cliffhangers.
As always there is a satisfying Happy Ever After.

football, then this one is for you.

Title: Sugar

Author: Lydia Michaels

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: September 28th

About Sugar:

Avery Johansson is borrowing against her youth and beauty to afford a better future by working as a sugar baby. Men think she’s everything they desire, soft, delicate, and able to stroke their fragile egos with a mere sweep of her lashes. The more they pay, the sweeter she

becomes. If only they knew the woman behind the façade. Oh, she could bring them to their knees, make them beg, and unburden their minds to a point of ecstasy. The true Avery doesn’t care for roses. She prefers the thorns. Because behind her beautiful exterior, she’s more leather than lace, and beneath the sugar there’s nothing but spice. The only thing missing is a strong and submissive man to make everything nice.

Noah Wolfe is used to getting exactly what he wants when he wants, and as he sets his sights on Avery Johansson, nothing will stop him short of having her. He’s determined to bury himself in her mind and body, and plans to unravel every dark secret she hides.

As two dominant hearts collide in an explosion of sin and secrets, boundaries come tumbling down. But their future lies in someone’s surrender, a sacrifice neither is prepared to make—and everything their happiness depends on.

Exclusive Excerpt:

I could feel his stare weighing on me, heavy and warm like a blanket I didn’t ask for but appreciated all the same. He watched from across the hall, watched me like a man who saw something he fantasized about possessing. A beautiful car, a valuable company, a woman, either way, I was only an object to him. That was fine. Impersonal, the way I preferred my relationship with neighbors.

My hand trembled as I slid my gold key into the slot of the deadbolt, securely locking my door. The ornate moldings throughout the building imposed a sense of security as well as a sense of lavish luxury, so my sudden unsteadiness wasn’t due to fear, but rather the result of my hot neighbor’s nearness in our shared, narrow hall.

This man should not stir the feelings he roused inside of me.

Don’t look…

Sliding the ornate key into the narrow pocket of my Dior clutch, I tried to hide my body’s response to his attention. He pretended to sort a handful of mail outside of his apartment door, his tailored, bespoke clothing the usual high-end office attire, but he didn’t strike me as a self-important snob. Just a result of good circumstances.

Regardless of his background, he got up and went to work every weekday and sometimes on weekends. The golden stubble covering his jaw was proof of yet another long day’s work.

Snapping my clutch shut, I pretended not to notice him, and fought the urge to dissect him with my eyes.

No one read their mail in the hall. They grabbed it from the lobby and dumped it on their counter when they walked through the door. Yet he eye fucked each envelope with the same intensity one reviewed a life or death contract. I doubted he read a single word.

Bingo. With a flick of his thick lashes, blond enough to give his blue eyes a dramatic gilded fringe, his gaze left the mail and landed on me. I looked away because there wasn’t time to play the demure flirt, and the last thing I needed was another man in my life.
