Max and Pres (Bound in Silk Book 2)



Sometimes, the things you don't want might be exactly what you need.

Pres has been watching Max, Bound in Silk’s bartender, for a while, but he hasn’t really figured out how to approach the sub. He wants to put Max on his knees, see all those muscles rippling, the large man submitting to him... but he has to get Max to play with him first.

Max knows there’s no man who can give him what he wants. Or, at least, he is convinced he won’t find one. Until Pres asks him to play. He’s reluctant, but who wouldn’t be, given his history with Doms?
When Max lets Pres take over, he might discover there is someone who can deal with his needs... and embrace them. But is it enough for a future together?

Interview With Payne De la Cour:

1. Can you tell us a little about your book?
     Bound is Silk is a BDSM club, run by Jason, who finds his very own sub in book one of the series. Max, a sub who doesn't like submission, finds his partner and Dom in book two... if they can manage to work through their issues. They have a connection, but Max has been burned before. He needs a Dom who can handle him and he's not sure he can trust Pres to be the one.

2. What inspires you to write? 
Everything. People I meet, things I read, movies I watch. Basically everything can be made in a book :)

3. If you ever experience a case of writer’s block, how do you cure it? 
Read, take a step back and switch to a different story.

4. Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured? 
I usually write in the mornings and in the evenings, when my kids are not at home. I have flexible day job hours so I try to get some writing time in before and after work.

5. Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing? 
Coffee!!! And chocolate. Basically, I eat a lot when working, and I'm not too picky. But coffee is a must.

6.  Do you have a favorite spot to write? 
Actually, I work at my desk (pretty boring, I know)

7.What are some of your favorite pastimes? 
Reading, of course, and looking through tumblr *cough* (all research, of course!). Annoying my husband is also high on the list

8. What are writing projects are you currently working on? 
Bound in Silk 3 and a co-writing project with the amazing R. Phoenix!

For Iris Dane and Dash Justice, love was a battlefield that left them bloody. They learned the hard way that time heals no wounds - it only leaves them gapping wider.

The God of Rock duet follows this couple from their first, innocent beginnings, to the fight they wage in front of the world.

This bundle includes:

Kneel

Dash Justice wrote the songs everyone sings.
His face hangs on every girl’s wall. But Dash wasn’t always a rock God.
Once, he was just Jamie, the boy I loved.
But when my name, sung from his lips promised I was good for only one thing, all sweet thoughts of him die.
Now his excuses mean nothing. His apologies are weak and I’m about to show the world that even rock Gods can be brought to their knees.

Beg 

I am a liar. My words were poison and everything I touched got filthy. Except Iris.
She was the best part of who I was. The only bright spark in my dull, gray world.
But denial made me stupid and a cruel insult destroyed everything I hoped to have with the girl of my dreams.
Now I will crawl on my knees and grovel because sometimes, even rock Gods have to beg.

From USA Today bestselling author J.L. Berg comes an enemies to lovers stand-alone romance.

I was waiting for my life to start...

After forgoing college to help run the family business, I’d given up on the idea of a different life, and finally made peace with something a bit simpler.

That is, until Leilani Hart showed up.

There is nothing simple about about the hotel heiress and the minute our eyes meet, I know my carefree existence is a thing of the past. She has big ideas for our sleepy town and the motel she plans on transforming into a spa destination for the rich and famous.

She’ll have to go through me first.

From our first meeting, we’re like fire and ice and I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to pin her down and melt some of those frigid layers right off.

But, my town comes first. Or, at least, that’s what I keep telling myself. Unfortunately, my heart and head don’t seem to agree and soon, I don’t know where my loyalties lie.  I’ve never believed in love, but for her, I just might be willing to risk it all.

Release Blitz for Rough Rider by Madison Faye



Title: Rough Rider
Series: Sugar County Boys #3
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 20, 2018



Blurb


Country swagger, filthy mouth, and one big, huge…gun.
The wildest outlaw in Sugar County is about to get his dirty hands all over one lucky lady.
And this is one cowboy who knows how to hold on tight.

No one ever said robbing a drug kingpin was gonna to be easy. But for a rough and tumble outlaw like me, it should be a cakewalk.

That is, before I crash in locked and loaded to find the prettiest little firecracker this side of the Mississippi sticking a gun in my face.

She’s the good girl gone bad – the gorgeous, tempting little socialite with a shotgun. Problem is, we’re after the same money. Problem is, one look at that fiery red hair and those sweet curves that won’t quit, and I’m hooked like a fish on a line.

Problem is, we already slept together.

Yeah. Shit.

I know the rules, and I know a rough, filthy country boy like myself should stay away from a rich, sassy heiress like Chastity Huntington. But I’ve already had a taste of her sweet lips, and gotten a tease of her soft moans. And now? Well now I’m gonna make her mine.

We’re tied to each other – literally – and on the run from some very dangerous people. But lucky for her, I carry a big gun.

Lucky for her, I know how to hold on tight and ride all night.

Lucky for her, I’m never gonna let go.

Giddyup.

Welcome Today's Featured Author
D.A. Roach!!


 The Demon Hunters Series 
Between the Bleeding Willows (Book 1 Demon Hunters)  
At eighteen years old, Cassidy has suffered more loss than most… 

At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring. 

She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….

A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world. But it’s been nearly impossible since Rya—a voracious demon on a quest to expand her power—devoured the soul of his Clan’s necromancer. Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian can’t understand how a human girl survived the transition. Now he has to find a way to return her to her own world, or risk her being caught in the crossfire, which is a complication he definitely doesn’t need.

Once back in the Human Realm, Cassidy readies herself for battle. She signs up for Krav Maga classes, where she meets Tyler Romaitis—a handsome, tenacious, humble guy. He seems almost perfect, but nothing is ever that easy.

And as the balance between good and evil shifts, Cassidy finds herself—and her ring—at the heart of the conflict for the survival of mankind.  
















Within the Darkest Hollows (Book 2 Demon Hunters) 
Cassidy and her mystical ring are stuck in the middle of a battle between the Demon World and the Mortal Realm…

A conflict with the demons has left Killian, head of the Demon Hunters, injured and stripped of his powerful Demon Hunter tattoo. Cassidy is tasked with caring for him in the Human Realm until he is well enough to cross back into the Demon Realm. But soon she notices he is acting strangely and begins to suspect something is wrong.

She seeks help from Serena, a retired Demon Hunter, but it’s too late…

Cassidy returns home to find Killian has gone missing. Tyler, a friend with his own set of mystical powers, shows up to tell her that Killian is at his house demanding a meeting with the Demon Queen Rya. She and Serena have to work fast to find a way to heal Killian and get Cassidy’s ring away from him before Rya is involved. Meanwhile, Tyler and his dad have their own plan to make a deal with the Queen.

The Queen has a decision to make, but not before securing her leverage…

Rya wants time to consider the offer presented by Tyler’s dad, and takes Cassidy to the Demon Realm as collateral. The Demon Queen must choose between Tyler, the mate she was promised, and the mystical ring that was forged for her years ago.

Tyler is forced to face the inner demon he has worked so hard to restrain. Will he succeed, or will he be lost to the darkness, leaving Cassidy to be sacrificed by the demons?

As both sides gain alliances, the tension between the realms grows and the time for action draws near… 
 
 
Beneath a Sinister Moon (Book 3 Demon Hunters) COMING SOON!

Oh, and she is ALWAYS listening to music. Her favorite authors include Rebecca Donovan, Richelle Mead, Larissa Ione, Stephanie Meyer, E.L. James, and Nicole Williams. Reading great works from authors like these has motivated D.A. to write her own stories. She hopes to make positive changes in the world with her art and writing.

"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself."

― George Bernard Shaw



Interview With D.A. Roach:

1. Can you tell us a little about your books?
I'll speak specifically about the Demon Hunters books, several things influenced the story. I told my daughter I wanted to write a paranormal story in honor of Autumn (my favorite season). She told me I should write about demons because they are scary. I took those building blocks and paired them with the lore of a haunted cemetery that was in a town near my childhood home....and Between the Bleeding Willows was born.

2. How did you choose the genre you write in?
I write what I love to read, horror, paranormal, some romance, teen drama, and stories that take you on the character's emotional journey.

3. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
7 standalones and 8 short stories in anthologies. My favorite is the Demon Hunters Series because I fell in love with the characters and love submerging myself into their world.

4. Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured?
I write when the children are busy or at school. I used to write at night but I've become a narcoleptic after 10pm. I can't stay awake for anything!

5. Do you have a favorite food or drink you must have nearby when writing?
Caffeine Free Diet Coke + Diet Coke with Lime mixed together and....Hershey's milk chocolate

6. Do you work with an outline, or just write?
I write out the whole story summary by hand - it looks like chicken scratch, lol. Then I come up with my characters backstories, find pictures of who I could picture as those characters, and decide what I want to happen to those characters. Then I hit the keys and start writing, going back to my summary and characters for inspiration.

7. What are some of your favorite pastimes?
HOCKEY! Not playing, but watching. I'm a HUGE hockey fan - I love the Blackhawks, Indy Fuel, and Pittsburgh Penguins. I also love creating mixed media art, listening to music, movie watching, and reading.

8. What are writing projects are you currently working on?
I am reading through/polishing Beneath a Sinister Moon (1/2 way through it) - then I'll pass it on to my editor. I also have a book I'll be reworking called Tethered (Book 1 of the J+P series). I've also been approached by a good friend to help pen the script for a tv series that I hope to begin on shortly.
