For Her Amusement, Bid on Love: Bachelor #5


Blurb:
Local travel journalist, Colton McDaniels, wants to be anywhere but on the auction block. He is reluctant, arrogant and difficult to put it mildly. Colton has a stigma in his head about the reasons these women are so into a bachelor auction until SHE is announced as his winning bid. Sexy. Quirky. Funny. Interesting. Forbidden. His sister’s best friend.

Everleigh Mason has had a thing for Colton for as long as she can remember. Only problem is, aside from being untouchable, she can't form a single coherent thought when he's around. When she bids on the amusement park date, she has no idea that her lifelong crush is bachelor number five.

When the date goes horribly wrong, will Colton be able to redeem himself or lose Everleigh before he even had her?

I’m the right-hand man of the mafia king.
She’s a girl with a past she’s desperate to hide.

But I need something from her.
And I know she won’t help me. Not willingly.
She’ll need some persuading.

Lucky for her, I can do that.

Something about this girl makes me curious, though, and it’s more than the scars that line her back. She’s on the edge of something.  Something bad. She’s like a perfect, beautiful doll coming apart at the seams. And the last string is about to snap.

She thinks I’ll hurt her. Break her.
But thing is, she’s already broken. And she and I, we’re two peas in a pod. She’s my match, the perfect opponent. She’ll fight me to the finish, but I’ll win. I always do.

Because I’m a man used to getting what I want. And what I want is her. 

Author’s Note: Giovanni is a STANDALONE dark mafia romance set in the Benedetti Brothers Mafia World. It’s an emotionally gripping enemies-to-lovers romance with a hard-earned HEA.

Excerpt

I bolt upright on the couch, Calder’s name still on my lips. Thunder booms and lightning flashes, briefly illuminating the dark room just as Calder rounds the coffee table. Crouching next to me, he brushes my hair away from my face, his hand warm against my clammy skin. “Are you okay? I just walked in and freaked when you called out my name. You sounded terrified.”

“I must’ve fallen asleep.” I lean into his comforting touch as I pick up my phone from the coffee table. “What time is it?” I mumble so he thinks that’s why I’m checking the screen. It was a dream. Celeste didn’t send any more texts. I exhale in relief.

Thunder vibrates the windows and Calder shakes his head as he slides his hand into my hair. “I can’t believe you slept through all this racket.” Pulling me forward, he kisses my forehead, then quickly looks at me with a worried gaze. “You’re trembling.”

“It was just a nightmare.” Taking a steadying breath, I offer a wry smile. “I was dreaming about Celeste.” 

He instantly scowls. “Now I see why you called it a nightmare. Wonder why she’s starring in your dreams after all this time?”

I sigh. Now that I’ve cut off all communication, I might as well tell him about her text. “She tried to contact me today.”

His expression hardens and his whole body tenses. “You didn’t respond, did you?”

“Only to tell her not to contact me anymore.” I don’t need a lecture. It’s over and done.

“Good,” he says, visibly relaxing. “The last thing we need is Celeste returning from the dead. All hell would break loose.”

“I completely agree.” Wrapping my hand around his wrist, I adopt a calm expression and search his gaze in the darkness. “Are you okay?”

“I’ve just been spending too much time in my own head.” He quickly scoops me up in his arms, his hold on me especially tight.

“What are you doing?” My heart races as I grip his broad shoulders. Keep holding me tight, Calder. Promise to never let me go, no matter what.

“Apologizing,” Calder murmurs as he nuzzles my neck while carrying me upstairs. The thunder rumbles in a low bass and the rain rushes against the windows as we enter our darkened room.

I’m surprised that he doesn’t lower me to my feet but instead sets me on the edge of our chaise lounge near the window. Lightning flashes as he towers over me and tilts my chin up. The churning of the storm just outside the window amplifies his heated gaze, spiking my adrenaline. As he begins to tug off his tie, I keep my gaze locked with his and wait for him to speak, but he doesn’t say a word. He loops his tie around the scrollwork at the top of the lounge’s back, then shrugs out of his jacket.

I’m so mesmerized as he unbuttons his dress shirt, that my gaze devours every inch of his gorgeous body as he peels the shirt away. From his six-pack abs to his broad chest, I’ll never get tired of burying my face against his warm, muscular frame. For now I don’t mind the silence between us. He’s here. That’s all that matters. We’ll work through this.

When he lowers himself to his knees in front of me, my hand instantly traces the inked raven feathers curved around his left shoulder and down his bicep. “I love this raven wing so much,” I say in a quiet voice. “I think it’s wonderful that others will be able to appreciate this masterpiece in Alana’s book, and that you’re a man of your word.”

Capturing my hand, he presses his lips to my palm in a slow tantalizing kiss. I take a shaky breath, trying not to get too emotional at how much he makes me feel with just a simple press of his lips to my skin. But he does. Every time, he melts me.

Release Blitz for Heartless by Willow Winters




Title: Heartless
Series: Merciless Saga #2
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 17, 2018



Blurb

At first, his words were harsh and his touch cold.
I knew he was a dangerous man and he could destroy me if only he wanted to.

That’s not what he wanted though. 
It’s so easy to get lost in the touch of a man who’s powerful and unattainable. 
A man who wants for nothing … except me.
Soft touches and stolen glances made my blood heat and my heart beat in a way I never knew it could.

Yes, it’s easy to fall into a haze of lust and desire.
But there’s a reason his reputation is one of a heartless man.
And I should have known better.

Blurb

Paige
Five years ago, my mom, dad, and sisters were assassinated.
I should have died that night.
I still question my mental state because I had no proof those same killers were after me. Yet still, I’d been trying to outrun my past and the men responsible for what happened that night.
Until I met him, Caleb Connor.
Caleb became my safety net and I found I couldn’t pull away from him. Couldn’t run away from him. And if sanity hadn’t been lost on me, I would have recognized he was the last person I should have let into my life. The last person I should have trusted.

Caleb
My life has been anything but normal until Paige. She was supposed to be an opportunity, my father’s next target.
I should have stayed away. It should’ve been that simple. But it wasn’t.
Paige was my main ingredient to changing everything, and in order to do that I needed to get inside her head. It wasn’t easy but when it happened, a line was crossed we never knew existed.
Now Paige has to confront her past and everything that torments her at night, because a look into the past was the only solution to everything we’d been afraid of questioning.
Who am I, and who was she?

Excerpt

A large man who looked like he lifted boulders for a living walked toward me, and as he lifted his head, there was no hiding the shock on his face. He quickly lowered his head and crossed the street. His strange reaction set me even more on edge, but my apartment was only fifty feet away, so I just picked up my pace. I wish I had been paying attention because, what if he were coming from my apartment? What if there were more of them there waiting for me? I couldn’t go upstairs. 
They’d found me. I just knew it.
Dammit.
I inhaled a few breaths to calm myself before an idea ensued.
Caleb’s apartment complex was behind mine on the opposite side of the street. Maybe I could go to his place because there was no way I wouldn’t be freaking out all night on my own. Besides, if I went to his place, it would be a distraction. Chills ran down my spine, and I looked behind me, continuing my walk past my own apartment and to the coffee shop a block ahead. I turned down the street next to the coffee shop and did a full circle, dialing Caleb’s number when I was a few feet away from the entrance to his apartment.
My heart jolted as a voice came from behind. “Changed your mind?” 
Caleb?
I spun around, and he was smiling, a hood pulled over his head and hands tucked into his pockets.
“Uh, um . . . were you following me? Why aren’t you inside already? It’s been at least twenty minutes since you dropped me off. And where did you come from?”
He grinned, removing his hands from his pockets and placing them on my hips. Then he turned me toward the door. “There’s nothing wrong with being careful, Paige, but you wouldn’t be standing here if you didn’t feel like you could trust me.” 
As he passed a hand around me to shove a key into the lock, I knew he could be right, but I shouldn’t trust him. My mind wandered as I tried to push aside the heat radiating from his front onto my back. 
“If I had known you were following me, I wouldn’t be here.”
“There’s also nothing wrong with a guy making sure the girl he likes gets home safe.” 
His other hand slid away from my hip, and I noticed its absence right away. I liked his touch. It was comforting, and I wanted him to keep touching me, keep consoling me. 
He stepped inside, raised his eyebrows, and held the door open. “It’s up to you.”

.•´✶Blurb¸.•´✶
Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, something extraordinary comes along that knocks you on your ass...
“Wolf”
I’m a simple man with simple values. You either love me or you hate me, but the ones who need me, always got me. I’m the self-proclaimed Wolf of the Satan’s Knights MC, the beast who will fight his way out of any dark alley to defend your honor. The brother you call upon when you’ve lost your faith in humanity. 
However, secrets and lies are the cancer of a man’s soul. Exposed, they will eat away all that is good and leave nothing but destruction in their wake. They’ll prove the best intentions sometimes fail and leave you questioning your life’s choices.
Now, searching for a purpose, I find myself facing the ride of my existence with a woman just as jaded as me. As she fights the biggest battle of her life, I want to be the man who stands by her side. The man who ain’t afraid to ride the edge of misery because he knows there is something beautiful on the other side…
“Maria”
I’ve prevailed against the mob, a deadbeat ex-husband and the woes of being a single mother. While someone else may have wished for a different life, I believe I’m stronger for everything I’ve endured. I’m someone who speaks her mind and fights for what is right. A woman who will smack you upside the head with a frying pan and ask questions later. 
Terrified of love, I’m an otherwise fearless woman.
Until a doctor solemnly diagnoses me and my strength falters.
Now as fear engulfs me, an unexpected man dressed in leather, holds out his hand.
As a woman who never needed anyone, I suddenly need him.
His assurance.
His strength.
His love
