LAURA'S LEGACY by Lilli Carlisle Excerpt & Giveaway

While Laura was attending the annual omega celebration, a ruthless ogre attack destroyed her village and wiped out her family. Heartbroken, lonely, and adrift, she was forced to rely on the kindness of the Black Ridge wolf pack alpha for a home. And so were many others, including members of the small Newton pack, and their handsome, strong alpha, Dedric. One brief interlude was all it took for Laura to know she would choose him as her mate.

Alpha Dedric Newton couldn’t believe his good fortune. Beautiful and powerful, Laura was the omega of his dreams. Worried he had so little to offer, he insists she spend time with his small pack as they rebuild their village and homes. Laura and Dedric’s time in Newton strengthens their bond while evil works to undo all of Laura’s gifts, especially her legacy. After finding the greatest love an alpha could dream of, Dedric will do anything and everything to keep Laura safe from harm.

Read an Excerpt

Dedric stormed back to his temporary house where his beta, his parents and the head of the women’s auxiliary waited in grim silence. Mary and Wilhelm, Samson and Rayanne followed him into his office. He sat behind his desk trying to calm the rage burning inside of him before speaking to the group squeezed into the room, all of them wearing the same pissed-off expression. It wouldn’t do to start ripping heads off to find out who was responsible for this insult, but Dedric was so angry he now understood what people meant when they said their blood boiled.

“Answers,” Dedric ordered. “I want answers as to why what should have been a happy and joyous occasion could have turned into chaos and insult. If we weren’t lucky enough to have Laura’s abilities this would have turned out to be a disaster.”

“Son, I can’t think of one person in our pack who would do something like this,” his mother said. “Everyone was overjoyed when they found out you had attracted the attention of an omega,” she assured him as she poured him a cup of coffee from the machine on the sideboard.

“Well somebody did,” Wilhelm groused. “It was plain to see the leg of the table had been cut. It wasn’t a failure due to the weight of the cake and it wasn’t because the table was old, because they’re new. Someone is responsible.” Wilhelm stared out the window. “I think you need to say something to the pack.”

“I will in the morning,” Dedric agreed.

“Oh, I think it’s going to have to be a bit sooner than that,” Samson said as he looked out the window and into the yard in front of the house.

Dedric got up, rounded his desk and looked through the window to find what looked like the whole pack standing in front of his house. Looks like I wasn’t the only one worried about how this affected Laura. “Right. I’ll go speak with them.”

Off-Screen by Josephine Traynor Giveaway

Release Date: July 12, 2018
Cover Design: K Creative Design


On screen, they are lovers, off-screen, they aren't even friends.
Riley I’m the reason Restless Times is the number-one rating show. This role should have been my dreams coming true, instead, my co-star Harrison Harvey has made it a living nightmare. His thirst for notoriety ends up putting both our jobs on the line. The man is my nemesis and he has no idea how much he owns my heart. Harrison Restless Times is successful only because of me. Any other female lead could step in and it would still be a ratings winner. Riley is nothing but a conniving, high maintenance pain in my arse. While we clash on every level, I can’t deny my love for her. The other problem is, it’s also shrouded in hate.

Midnight with the Devil by Emma Castle Excerpt & Giveaway

Release Date: August 13, 2018
Cover Design: Covers By Combs


He’s sexy as sin and hotter than hell and—oh wait.
What would you do to save a loved one’s life? Make a pact with the Devil? In Diana Kingston’s defense, it was the middle of the night in the deserted hospital chapel… surely it was just a dream. She hadn’t really sold herself to a brooding stranger to save her father’s life, right? Then she wakes and her father is fully recovered and a mysterious letter arrives from the tall, dark, handsome—um, Devil? Yep, it was right there on the contract, Lucien Star, aka Lucifer Morningstar, that had been his name in the dream… Gulp. What would the Devil himself want with her? Sex. Three months of hot, sweaty, Friday night sex. Ooookay. Breaking a pact with the Devil doesn’t seem like a smart move. So she’ll do it—but she won’t like it. Not much anyway. But she starts liking it – a lot—and every night they spend together, she likes it and Lucien a little more. Being with him allows her naughty side to come out and play, but Diana starts to see more than just a sexy-as-sin, rock-hard … er…Anyway, he might be Satan, but even he was an angel once. Kind. Noble. And she sees glimpses of that man still inside him… But how in Heaven’s name do you save the Devil from himself?

Barnes & Noble:


“You agree to make a deal with me, and I will give you something in return.”
She put a hand to her chest as she looked up at him.
“You can…save my dad?” Part of her wondered if she was dreaming. She had to be. There was no way she was talking to the devil about making a deal to save her father’s life.
“I can.”
“But you said you didn’t save lives.”
The man… No, the devil slowly smiled. “I said I don’t look like I save lives and as a general rule I do not.”
“Then why help me?” Diana got to her feet but sat down in the nearest pew. The devil strode to the stained glass window, tilting his face up, the light playing upon his skin.
“Because you are a pure soul and I hunger for corruption. I need to corrupt you.”
“Corrupt me?” She shuddered at the dark word. When she thought of corruption she thought of stealing, of hurting people, of unlawful things she’d never do.

Undercurrents in Time by Pamela Schloesser Canepa Excerpt & Giveaway

Undercurrents in Time
by Pamela Schloesser Canepa


GENRE: Sci-fi Time Travel Romance (clean)



What if time travel proved you were meant to be together? Sometimes the very things that bond two people can drive a wedge between them. Tabitha and Milt have been through a lot together, but they find themselves pulled in very different ways.

Tabitha longs for a getaway, while Milt is busy with his responsibilities. She embarks on an unplanned journey. With this attempt to pull herself out of the rut, how will she handle the unknown dangers she faces and return her life to normal?


EXCERPTS (Exclusive Excerpt):

“Ma’am, why are baby boys rare?”  She clung to the hope that some truth lingered in what this woman said, that she knew things.  For sure, if she was a time traveler, she had seen things that many people here had not.

“We don’t know.  They say it’s ‘cuz everyone’s having babies late in life.  They say it’s something in the water.  I think potatoes are evil.  Something bad is in the ground, I tell you.  We’re learning how to get along, we can get along without men, but you know, we can’t die out.  Any young man around gettin’ treated like a king.  We do all the hard work now.  I tell you, I never saw this comin’.  Fought so hard for our rights, fought to burn our bras.  Well, we got our rights.  Just wait, someone will decide a new hierarchy.  Mark my words.”

“How long have you been in here?”

“I’m not talkin’ anymore.  You’re lucky I said as much as I did.”  She crossed her arms and kept her bony back turned on Tabitha.  Well, the woman looked to be in her sixties at least, so it certainly wasn’t possible she had been in here since the 1960s.

Pauline came in with a plate of food covered by a plastic film.  Tabitha discovered it was not plastic at all.  Pauline used the remote to open a small door to fit the food through, and the film seemed to sink into the food.

“What is that?  On the food?  How can you feed me that?”

“Ma’am, please stop acting paranoid.  It doesn’t help your case.”
