Release Blitz~ CAPTAIN’S ORDERS by Kara Keen

CAPTAIN’S ORDERS
Author: Kara Keen
Genre: Contemporary Romance | Suspense | New Adult
~ SYNOPSIS ~
She seduced the wrong captain, and that’s just the beginning ….
Cole Carleton, captain of the cruise ship Sunset, decides to capture Tania’s heart after she mistakenly seduced his twin brother. After a night they’ll never forget, he finds out what really brought her aboard in the first place.
Is Tania only using him to rescue her sister, a young woman snared in a deadly web of international sex trade?
Tania Shevchenko will do anything to save her sister, and her sizzling attraction to the cruise ship’s captain may be more of a distraction than an advantage. Proudly carrying her new American passport, she boards the ship and discovers there’s more to life than working hard — and the sinfully sexy Captain Carleton is willing to be her guide to all of it.

~ EXCERPT ~
She seemed so damned
comfortable with his touch and everything he said, he was knocked completely
off his game. His thoughts ran away from him while he fantasized about her
perfect, creamy skin, her breasts pressing against him, immediately triggering
another unbrotherly hard-on he was sure she was aware of.
Okay, so yeah…he and
Jack had let a few of their female friends sleep it off in here, and Jack was
going to be  pissed when he found out Cole brought a relative stranger to
stay in their personal quarters. But he couldn’t stand the thought of not being
able to see her whenever he had a few minutes. They’d just met, but already
he’d made her cry and he was obsessed with her. What the hell?!
Tania sat down on the
bed and patted it for him to sit next to her. He did what she wanted, realizing
she was sweet but not shy. And there’s something in her eyes…something
I’m feeling too. 
She smiled, wiping her eyes and sniffing away her
tears. Sitting this close to her, he had to work hard not to let her full lips
distract him from what she was saying.
“I’m sorry I cried,”
she said, “As you know, I did not sleep on the plane, I’m tired.” Pausing, then
choosing her words carefully, she locked eyes with him. “Will you tell me
something, Cole? Are you married or are you with somebody, like the woman who
called you sweetheart?”
“I am not married and
have never been married, and no, that woman is not my girlfriend. I don’t have
a girlfriend.”
“But you’ve had lots of
girlfriends, yes? And they sleep with you because you’re beautiful.” His eyes
widened and he took a deep breath when she took his cap off and ran her fingers
through his longish sandy brown hair, twirling the part curled onto his neck
around her finger. Now she was focusing on his mouth and when she licked her
lips, well…
Cole was completely
undone by her gaze, her lips, her touch, but he laughed anyway. “You’re
trouble, girl. That’s what I’m going to call you, Trouble. You follow me and
seem to trust me for absolutely no reason, and you’re making me nuts. Why did
you come with me?”
If she told him the
whole truth, the real reason she was on this cruise ship, he’d run. Or worse,
he’d throw her out. She was nobody, she had nothing, but she liked him,
she…desired him. And she needed his help. Plus, she couldn’t take her eyes off
of him! Normally a hard-working, serious girl, Tania hadn’t been with anyone,
hadn’t even been to a party in years.
 But she was here
for her sister. And though she wasn’t sure why, she did trust him. She ignored
his question, smiled and doubled back to hers.
“I notice you did not
answer me about your girlfriends.”
“Does it matter to
you?” He turned to her and put a little kiss on her shoulder.
She felt the heat
coming off him and leaned in a little. “It’s yes, then. You’ve been with many
women. And I’m okay about it.” She felt the red-hot blush on her face. “Did I
say it right?”
He pulled back and
watched her face, a smile pulling at his lips. “You’re good with it, you’re
okay about it, yeah.” Cole’s voice had a rich, deep sound that soothed and
thrilled her at the same time. He raised an eyebrow and ran a finger along her
chin. “Why?”
Now the heat spread
from her face to her neck, and from there to places unknown, ones she would
like him to know. “I…uh…I’ve only had one boyfriend. When I first came to the
States, when I spoke very little English. He was a Ukrainian boy, and he was
the only one I could talk to. I was with him for a few years, we had sex, but I
never…uh…I never….” Her voice trailed off.
Tears burned her eyes
because she didn’t understand why she was even telling him
about this. It was like some other woman’s voice coming out of her mouth,
completely unreal.
He put his hands on
her shoulders and ducked, grinning, his gaze more intense. “Soooo…you’ve never
had an orgasm. Is that what you’re trying to say?”
Had she really asked
this beautiful stranger to show her how to have an orgasm? What am I
doing?! This is insane! This isn’t important, isn’t why I am here.
 But
everything about him made her happy to be reckless and young for a change, seeking
pleasure with this big, beautiful wolf of a man.
She nodded and looked
down, red-faced. “My girlfriends say I’ve been re-virginized.”
Cole nodded,
suppressing a laugh ’cause she looked embarrassed. And her blushing was so
funny. He couldn’t remember ever meeting a women this pretty who was so
innocent and easy to read. Beautiful women tended to learn how to mask their
feelings, how to deflect unwelcome attention. He pulled back and looked closely
at her again, examining her eyes for any trace of hesitation. There was an
unmistakable fever in those big brown eyes, a heat. “I can help you with that.
You want me to, right?”

Blurb

Dax Davies has one job to fulfill in the Davies household. Earn money at the family business. The problem is that the family business was illegal underground fighting.

From a young age, Dax and his brothers are groomed to become money earners in their father’s club. Broken bones and bruises are commonplace. Their father pits the brothers against each other to ‘toughen them up’ for the ring, using his rules to bend his sons to his will. His future is in the cage, not on stage where he dreams of making music.

Kate Campbell loves one thing in life. Well, two. Soccer and Dax Davies. Growing up in the poorest part of London, soccer is her personal escape from reality and from the fact that Dax doesn’t seem to know she exists. She figures if she can be good enough at soccer, maybe she can get away from Hackney, and leave the poverty behind.

Kate doesn’t plan on ever getting to know Dax as more than a passing acquaintance. In fact, she isn’t meant to go with her friend to Dax’s father’s business, but that one night changes everything.

***This is book 2 in the Sphere of Irony Series. It can be read as a standalone. This is a spin-off of the Famous Series***

Excerpt

“Ready?”

   Dax has gathered his guitar and is holding open the door for me. “Yes, I suppose,” I say, flashing him what I hope is a sexy smile and not an awkward grimace. A second later, I feel utterly ridiculous in my pathetic attempt to seem flirty. I’m not flirty, not even close.

   My attempt must not be as pathetic as I thought, because Dax’s usually glacial expression lights up and he grins back. “After you.”

   Wow. Being able to pull that single smile from him gives me a heady sense of power. Dax doesn’t smile for just anyone. In fact, I’ve only ever seen him smile for Adam and… me.

   Forgetting about my inadequacies for a change, we chat comfortably all the way to the tube station, have a laugh at the confused tourists on the train, and jostle each other playfully as we make our way to my flat. In fact, we’re having so much fun we don’t realize how handsy we’re being with each other our joking has me pulled against Dax’s wide chest, my head tilted back to stare into his molten brown eyes.

   Our laughter cuts off abruptly. Something flickers behind those dark irises of his. Something that sends tiny sparks zinging down my spine, flooding my body with warmth. He looks as if… as if he’s going to kiss me. But he wouldn’t do that, right? I’m the sporty girl. The boring one. Not the gorgeous type a bloke like Dax would go for. Yet there’s no mistaking the heat in normally ice-cold his eyes.

   Dax lowers his head, his nose brushing against my cheek. An uncontrollable shudder wracks my body and goose bumps cover my skin. His breath is hot on my ear. The contrast between hot and cold overwhelming my body is as thrilling to feel as it is confusing to see in Dax’s ever-changing moods. “Kate…” He inhales a ragged breath, as if merely speaking is painful.

   Before I can blink, Dax’s huge, calloused hands are framing my face and his mouth brushes across mine. At first it’s just a whisper, a tease, the contact barely there. Then, I hear him inhale sharply and his lips press down forcefully, melding with mine, urging me to open up with quick flicks of his tongue. I melt against his solid body as he dominates the kiss, completely under his spell to do with as he wishes. It seems to go on and on—a small slice of paradise in this blighted spot of East London.

   When he finally pulls back, greedily stealing a few more nips at my mouth, he closes his eyes and moans. “I knew you’d taste like heaven. You’re an angel, I just knew it.” His voice is so quiet I wonder if he meant to say it out loud.

Naturally, I stand there like an idiot, saying nothing… doing nothing. I’ve been kissed into complete stupidity.

   Dax swipes the pad of his thumb over my damp lips. “See you at school tomorrow.” Without giving me a single hint of what he’s thinking, he turns and leaves. I touch my mouth, running a finger over the same spot Dax touched. My heart leaps into my throat, fluttering so fast I fear it may explode.

   Great. I’m ruined. My first kiss and it was nothing less than brilliant. Dax Davies just ruined me for every other man from now until the day I die.

Ivy Lee, a talented tattoo artist who spent the early part of her twenties on the move, is looking for a place to call home. She thinks she might have finally found it working in her uncle’s tattoo shop in San Francisco. But all that changes when a robbery turns deadly, compelling her to pack up her things yet again.

But it’s impossible to get the answers he needs from a dead body, leaving him to look elsewhere. Namely, to the twenty-something-year-old niece who believes this was a random attack.

About BURYING WATER:

The top-selling, beloved indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths returns with a new romance about a young woman who loses her memory—and the man who knows that the only way to protect her is to stay away.

Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?

Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.

The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.

When Rust hands him the managerial keys to the garage, they come with a second set—one that opens up the door to tons of cash and opportunity. Though it’s not exactly legal, Luke’s never been one to worry about that sort of thing. Especially when it puts him behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and onto the radar of gorgeous socialite named Rain.

Clara Bertelli is at the top of her game—at only twenty-six years old, she’s one of the most successful undercover officers in the Washington, DC, major crime unit, and she’s just been handed a case that could catapult her career and expose one of the West coast’s most notorious car theft rings. But, in order to do it, she’ll need to go deep undercover as Rain Martines. Her target? The twenty-four-year-old nephew of a key player who appears ready to follow in his uncle’s footsteps.

As Clara drifts deeper into the luxurious lifestyle of Rain, and further into the arms of her very attractive and charming target, the lines between right and wrong start to blur, making her wonder if she’ll be able to leave it all behind. Or if she’ll even want to. ​

About CHASING RIVER:

Armed with two years’ worth of savings and the need to experience life outside the bubble of her Oregon small town, twenty-five-year old Amber Welles is prepared for anything. Except dying in Dublin. Had it not been for the bravery of a stranger, she might have. But he takes off before she has the chance to offer her gratitude.

Twenty-four-year-old River Delaney is rattled. No one was supposed to get hurt. But then that American tourist showed up. He couldn’t let her die, but he also couldn’t risk being identified at the scene—so, he ran. Back to his everyday life of running his family’s pub. Only, everyday life is getting more and more complicated, thanks to his brother, Aengus, and his criminal associations. When the American girl tracks River down, he quickly realizes how much he likes her, how wrong she is for him. And how dangerous it is to have her around. Chasing her off would be the smart move.

Maybe it’s because he saved her life, or maybe it’s because he’s completely different from everything she’s left behind, but Amber finds herself chasing after River Delaney. Amber isn’t the kind of girl to chase after anyone.

And River isn’t the kind of guy she’d want to catch.

Cover Reveal: The Offer by Karina Halle

We are very excited to announce a brand new stand-alone from NYT Bestselling author Karina Halle!

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
She thinks he’s an arrogant playboy.
He thinks she’s an uptight prude.
But he’s about to make her an offer she can’t refuse.
Nicola Price used to have it all – a great career, the perfect boyfriend, an excessive shoe collection and an apartment in one of San Francisco’s best neighborhoods. But when she gets knocked up and her asshat boyfriend leaves her high and dry, Nicola’s perfectly crafted world comes tumbling down. And stays that way.
Now, Nicola is the proud single mom to a five-year old daughter and living a giant lie. She can barely afford their ghetto apartment and all the men she dates run when they hear she comes with a child. She’s struggling and scared – and nowhere near where she thought she’d be at age thirty-one.
Her saving grace comes in the form of a tall, handsome and wealthy Scotsman Bram McGregor, the older brother of her friend Linden. Bram understands a thing or two about pride, so when tragic circumstances place Nicola at rock bottom, he offers them a place to live in the apartment complex he owns. It’s pretty much the perfect deal, so as long as she doesn’t mind living beside Bram, a man that, despite his generosity, seems to antagonize her at every turn.
But nothing in life is free and as Nicola gets her feet back on the ground, she discovers that the enigmatic playboy may end up costing her more than she thought.
She might just lose her heart.
                                               Those McGregor brothers are nothing but trouble…

SHADOWS OF WHITESTONE MANOR
Author: Brittany Jo James
Series: The Winters Family Series, Book Two
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Some shadows are as dark as night.
At least mine are.
My name is Grayson Winters and you’ve already been introduced to my family’s story.
Four months have passed since Lilith moved into Whitestone Manor to be with my brother, Orson. Now they’re getting married and it’s all I can do not to gag when they giggle at each other. Whitestone Manor represents nothing but secrets and darkness to me. Then, light begins to pour into my bleak world.
Prater Hahn has disappeared without a trace. Not that I blamed him or his brethren. I still wasn’t entirely sure Whitestone Manor was where I belonged either. All I knew for certain was that sweet, precious Ava Prescott seduced me with every bat of her eyelashes. Too bad for me, dating her was against the rules.
When a new danger arises to test the residents of Whitestone Manor, it falls on me to eliminate the problem. I thought I didn’t need my family’s help. I thought I could protect the ones I loved. Until I realized, not all who seem harmless truly are.
Loving the seemingly angelic girl I was forbidden to date certainly isn’t innocent.
But perhaps, neither is she?
If you aren’t afraid of what lurks in the shadows, I’ll tell you my story.

SECRETS OF WHITESTONE MANOR
Author: Brittany Jo James
Series: The Winters Family Series, Book #1
Genre: Young Adult Romance | Paranormal Romance
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Some secrets are too dark to ever be brought into the light.
At least mine are.
My name is Orson Winters, and you already know too much for me to let you walk away.
A decade has passed since my parents were killed, forcing my younger siblings and me to move in with our estranged uncle. Whitestone Manor in all its grandeur was overwhelming enough. Then, we learned the family secret.
There’s darkness in the world no one, besides a handful of fighting families, even knows exists. The Winters family is the most acclaimed of them all. However, power isn’t always pleasurable, especially considering that it’s my responsibility to keep my reckless brothers and sister from jeopardizing us all.
When an old enemy emerges from the shadows, Uncle Sebastian calls in another fighting family to assist. I didn’t need their help. I could independently protect my siblings and the rest of the world from danger. That was, until I met Lilith Shaw. Now I’m not even sure that I can protect myself.
I can’t focus on that, though.
I’m the last one standing between you and those who wait in the darkness.
If you can keep a secret, I’ll tell you my story.

Synopsis

 

Blue Williams shines no matter the circumstance.
-Prettiest in her hometown
-Most talented cheerleader on her high school squad
-Valedictorian of the senior class
-Prom queen and runner up for Miss Teen Colorado
And the list goes on…

That’s until college, when she finds out nobody recognizes her, and if they do they couldn’t care less. Blending in is something Blue has longed for her entire life. Living in a dorm with a set of new friends is just what she needed to escape her stale life back home. For the first time, she’s seen for her talent and not her name or looks.

Cheer is her number one priority, considering a full-ride scholarship landed her at a prestigious university, and she intends to take advantage of it. A true beauty inside and out, Blue’s heart has always pumped competitive blood.

Until one night changes her forever…the beauty is gone, and all she has left are nasty, ugly memories. The man who saved her has a story of his own, with ninety percent of his body scarred.

What happens when the Beauty falls for the Beast?

NEED YOU NOW
Series: Need Series, Book #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance | Erotic Romance
~ SYNOPSIS ~
Nate Lawson was a player – dominating in the office and bedroom. Thanks to betrayal he didn’t do relationships, only one-night stands, until he met her. The one he finally connected to would be the one he’d let slip away…
His job took him everywhere to uncover criminal activity at corporate levels. But, now he was back with one focus in mind, to expose the questionable activity at his sister’s workplace and find his woman! The only problem – who was she?
Gianna Scott finally found a Dom to show her the true meaning of submission – surrendering her mind and body freely. Too bad she didn’t know who he was or if he’d return. Her life had gotten crazy with someone intent on destroying her reports at work, making her frustrated and needing release – needing him…
Nate hated answering to anyone, but agreed to go incognito, as Gianna’s assistant. They’d butt heads at every turn, but why did fighting with her leave him turned on? And why was she starring in his fantasies? Would he ever find the one that got away?
All he knew is that he needed her – Now!

~ ABOUT THE AUTHOR ~

Cynthia P. O’Neill 

I grew up in a small town in South Florida called Clewiston and moved to Central Florida to attend college. I married my friend, love, and soul mate and still reside in the area with our amazing son, and a feisty, four-legged little doggie boy.
In my books, I draw on my background in healthcare, business, and science, along with my husband’s engineering and wireless technology knowledge.
I currently write on all levels of Romance. The Learning Series is for those who like a little more steam with their books, falling into the categories of Contemporary and verging on Erotica, with a hint of Suspense. The Remembrance Series encompasses Young Adult, with a touch of Paranormal activity and a hint of Historical romance. A new contemporary romance series is underway, called Need. It will be different than the others, because each book will focus on a new couple, while all of the characters will still have a large presence throughout the series.
I try to make my writing very personal and close to her heart. Regular life is the inspiration for my books, but I’m only limited by imagination taking ideas to new heights, opening up possibilities that would normally not exist.
On a more personal note…I love to cook and create in the kitchen and on the bbq grill. I sometimes lose myself in a song at the piano. I often sing with my son while we are driving or making dinner together. I enjoy crafts (flower arranging, making wreaths, painting pottery, needle point and drawing in pencil and charcoals). My music tastes are eclectic at best, ranging from classical piano to hard rock/heavy metal. It all depends on the song, group, and if it has a good beat or is a soulful ballad.
