#NewRelease - The Vampire's Mark by @author_r_jonas


Title: The Vampire’s Mark
Author: Rachel Jonas
Genre: Upper YA/NA Paranormal Romance | Urban Fantasy | Reverse Harem Romance | Vampire Romance
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber of Najla Qamber Designs

Blurb:
Four blood-sucking princes. A beautiful anarchist. One dangerous mistake.

To the vampires who dominate each quadrant of the Lydian Dynasty, I’m only known as “Blackbird”—a masked vigilante who, at nineteen, is already public enemy number one.

To what’s left of humanity, I’ve been called a superhero, a title I neither welcome nor deserve. My only objective is to offer the enslaved what was stolen from us …

Freedom.

However, a failed plan lands me in the last place I imagined, at the mercy of all four Dynasty princes—Julian, Levi, Roman, and Silas. They’re monsters, each with a heart rumored to be as cold as his icy skin. And what’s worse, thanks to the slip-up, my fate is suddenly theirs to decide.

It’s up to them whether I’ll swing from the gallows, and I’ve given them every reason to sentence me to such a fate. Yet, I felt something unexplainable when our paths first crossed.

Something that gives me hope.

We should be one another’s worst nightmare. Only, I’m beginning to wonder if, somehow … these four princes might be my saving grace.

“Interesting … A prince adored by the public, avoids them every chance he gets.”

In my peripheral, I caught the glint of white teeth when he smiled.

“Will that be the headline for your next article?”

My mouth curved up despite my best efforts to stop it. “I suppose if I had any interest in writing about you, it could be.”

“Ouch.” He chuffed a short laugh as his hands left the banister and slipped inside his pockets.

“I meant what I said about my being here having nothing to do with you,” I reminded him, hearing the flirty undertones I didn’t mean to let slip when adding a coy, “Your Highness”.

A breath hitched in my throat when he turned, facing me full-on. I refused to do the same.

“Is it bad I wish that weren’t true?" he asked. "That I wish you had come here for me?”

The question left me speechless. To keep from letting him see how he affected me, I tried distracting myself by naming the different flowers I could spot from here.

… Hydrangeas.

… Lilacs.

“I’m not usually so forward, but … you’re beautiful in this light, with the moon high and clear,” he stated boldly. “Although, I imagine I’d say the same even if we were standing in a storm.”

… Roses.

… Lilies.

I was suddenly aware of soft music floating to this terrace through the open doors of the one below, from the gala where Julian had just whisked me away. His formidable body moved closer and I stared when a hand was extended toward me.

“May I have this dance?”






#BlogTour - MaddJax by @DeborahAnn11

BLURB:
He broke her heart when he left her seven years ago. Now he’s back to reclaim what’s his…

Maddison Cole ~

It’s been seven years since Jaxon Jaimison left town, stole my heart, my friendship and my virginity, and took it with him. Along with our secrets.

Now he’s just waltzed back into my life, swaggering toward me with his cocky attitude.
And damn if he doesn’t look good. Smoldering eyes, sexy smile, and rock hard body made for climbing.

Made for sin.

He’s the one man that sets my insides on fire just by being in the room; just by living and breathing.

The one man I can’t have.

The boy who owns all my firsts.

Now here he is, ambushing me with a grand entrance into our class reunion and introducing himself to everyone as my loving boyfriend, after not so much as a word all these years.

He says I’m his…

Says I always have been…

I’m not so sure about that. Because if that were true, he wouldn’t have left me, just days after taking my virginity…

~

Jaxon Jaimison ~

I knew Maddison Cole was mine the moment I met her. Didn’t matter that we were only fifteen. When you know, you know.

But then my father turned around and made her my stepsister.

I understand Maddison’s worries, but I’ll never leave her again. And unlike my stepsister, I’m not hung up on the forbidden, taboo nature of a relationship between us, nor do I care what others think. We’re older now, more established, both successful. I’m not taking no for an answer. After all, I packed up my broken heart seven years ago and left town for a reason, determined on making something of myself, to be the man Maddison deserves.

Maddison thinks it’s just one night, she’ll give in and then I’ll disappear again, but seducing her to my hotel suite reunion night is just the start.

I’m staying, moving back into the bedroom beside hers, and the office beside hers, as co-CEO of the family business, right alongside Maddison, the current CEO…

Jaxon nearly destroyed me last time. I can’t afford for history to repeat itself. Not with the future of our family and the company at risk. I’ll guard my heart and our secrets at all costs…

After years of reading with her children and passing on a love for books, Deborah was inspired to write ‘The Destiny Series’. What started out in the beginning, as a celebration of a loving, young, innocent friendship and the affecting separation after a move, spun into a mythical journey of the loving binds of friendship, deep family ties, and an intoxicating fairy tale romance, with the power of love that knows no bounds.

‘Memory Betrayal’& ‘The Deal Series’ followed, with a leap from young adult romance to adult contemporary romance. Deborah writes stories about strong, sassy, smart, confident women and loveable, good-looking, sexy alpha men in a range of heat levels, from sweet to steamy, who always find their happily ever after.

Deborah Ann resides in Northern California with her husband and their college-age daughter and son. And while it can be a balancing act at times, with how busy family life can get, Deborah sneaks in as much time as she can to slip into the lives of her characters, and the magical world in which they live...

Maddison ~
I was thankful Jaxon hadn’t grabbed one of those ridiculous name tags at the door with his yearbook photo on it. That would have blown his story for sure. Likely, he’d thought of that ahead.
Annoyed, Jaxon ignored their remarks and swept me away, his hand still laced with mine and held on my lower back. It was undeniable, the sparks at his touch. Everywhere his skin came in contact with mine. Even his side a few inches from mine elicited a reaction. I wasn’t happy about that…
Well…torn. That’s what I was. Happy to at last see Jax, but pissed that he was only now waltzing back into my life, after all this time. Ambushing me in the middle of a large gathering.
I waited just long enough to ensure that we were out of earshot from the girls, to lay into him. “What the heck was that? Have you lost your mind?! Now those gossipy ninnies think you are my boyfriend.”
“Good.” He pulled me to the dance floor. “And hello to you too, sweet cheeks.”
Good? What? “Have you forgotten you are my brother?”
“Step!” Jaxon snarled in correction. “Stepbrother.” He towed me ahead, our bodies forcibly parting a path between the other few dancers.
“Still. Same difference,” I spat. “They’ll remember.”
He didn’t seem to care. Just spun me into his arms and pulled me in for a dance.
I wished my betraying body didn’t like it so much, melding to him like it belonged there. Like a heat-seeking missile.
A spark of desire flickered through me, spreading tingles about my insides.
I was so totally screwed.

#NewRelease - MaddJax Book Two by @DeborahAnn11


Title: MaddJax, Book Two
Author: Deborah Ann
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Destiny Publishing-Hester
Publication Date: December 27th, 2018
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

BLURB:
Can first love get a second chance?

Maddison ~

Jaxon Jaimison wasn’t supposed to be the one. Nope. I wasn’t supposed to fall for my stepbrother.

I made that mistake once. I’d be stupid to make it again.

But then he came back to fix what was lost and broke. All smoldering eyes, sexy smile, and rock hard body.

I tried to fight it. Really, I did.

But I never had a chance.

Jaxon’s mere presence sets my insides on fire, his scent and his taste put my mind in a haze.

The temptation’s too strong, too close. My body craves his touch, longs to be against his.

Just as I begin to feel hope for our future, let my walls down and accept what is—that Jaxon owns my heart, my body, and my soul—it all starts to unravel, when everything I hold dear is rocked by tragedy and threatened to be lost.

All things come to an end, and this might be ours…

~

Jaxon ~

The years apart have done nothing to diminish the passion between us, the ever-present pull and need. But wooing my stepsister into crossing the line into the forbidden and giving us a second chance, earning back her trust and her heart after I left and shattered them both, has been a bigger challenge than I expected.

Now that I finally have her in my arms, my bed, I’m never letting her go.

Of course, there’s bound to be a few bumps on the path to Happily Ever After. Secrets rarely stay hushed. But I never saw what was coming. Never saw our pasts coming back to tear us apart. Never saw Maddison pushing me away. And never saw having to literally fight for our future together.

Losing Maddison isn’t an option, and I’ll fight to hold onto her with everything I am.
Even, if it kills me…

Growing up in the Ozarks, as a child Suzanna spent her days wandering the fields and woods surrounding her home. While most children avoided the dark corners of the woods, she sought it out, imagining them to be filled with fairies, dragons and all number of creatures.

Having not lost her childhood imagination, Suzanna has written numerous poems, songs and short stories that won various awards in high school and college.

However, in 2014 she decided to stop wishing she could publish a book and made the dream a reality when she released The Bed Wife.

That first novella gave birth to two more books, completing the series, and stirred the embers of a new five-book series called The Untold Stories, which is currently in the works.

When she's not busy writing or spending time with her family, Suzanna loves to draw and paint, as well as scrapbook. She also has been known to volunteer with her children's school, the local Ladies Auxiliary veterans group and even the local zoo!
