Shadow and Ice (Gods of War, #1) by Gena Showalter

 

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gena Showalter, released SHADOW AND ICE, the first title in her new paranormal romance Gods of War Series. Check out the tour stop below and get your copy of SHADOW AND ICE today!

 

Gena Showalter, the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the Lords of the Underworld, introduces a scorching new paranormal romance series… Gods of War.

Knox of Iviland has spent his life competing in the All Wars, where vicious warriors with supernatural powers fight to the death to claim new realms. One winner takes everything—and all losers die. Enslaved as a child for his ability to control shadows, the most ruthless champion in history will stop at nothing to kill his king. But first he must win the battle for Earth. When a fearsome weapon imprisons every combatant in ice, centuries pass without progress…until she walks in.

Vale London craves a fun arctic getaway with her foster sister before settling down to open a bakery. Street-tough but vulnerable, she is unprepared to find ancient gods escaping a frozen cave—merciless beings who target her when she inadvertently enters their war.

Though Vale is now his enemy, Knox is consumed with lust and a fierce need to protect her. But only one combatant can prove victorious, and he will have to choose: live for freedom, or die for love.

Three weeks ago, she and Nola had thought adventure awaited when they’d arrived in JukkasjÀrvi, Sweden. And it had. For five days. Then they’d road-tripped into Russia and hiked through the Khibiny Mountains with a thirty-something guide who’d promised a kick-A experience. Temperatures had proven frosty, but there’d been very little snow, and no ice. A plethora of trees had awed, their leaves plush and green enough to rival freshly polished emeralds, seemingly dusted with diamond powder. Here and there, rivers had babbled happily, and breathtaking waterfalls had cascaded into crystal pools. 
Somehow, their little trio had veered off of a path and ended up in this icy wasteland. In a blink! 
Backtracking hadn’t helped. The ice had remained, and stretched on. A single set of footprints had led them to a cabin…where they’d spent every day of the past two weeks. Well, Vale and Nola had spent every day of the past two weeks inside the cabin. Before the end of day one, their guide had taken off to scout the perimeter, hoping to stumble upon the cabin’s owner, he’d said, but he’d never returned, and there’d been no sign of him since. 
This morning, the sisters were forced to make a choice: remain in the warmth of the cabin and slowly starve to death, or set out to try to find help, and quickly freeze to death. 
As Carrie—aka Care Bear, aka best foster momma ever—used to say, If you want to experience the miracle of walking on water, you gotta get out of the boat. 
Better to try and fail than to never try at all. 
In desperate need of a miracle, Vale and Nola had strapped on snow gear they’d unearthed in a trunk only a few days before. Oddly enough, the garments had fit perfectly, as if tailor-made for them. The coincidence had roused her suspicions, sure, but in the end she hadn’t cared about how or why, only survival. They’d set out bright and early that morning, trudging through mile after mile of snow. 
Now sunset approached. So far, no luck. They’d found no hint of life, and Vale was getting worried. 
Getting? Please. She’d been worried every second of every day since the nightmare had started. She wasn’t ready to die.

Cover Reveal: Kill Switch (Devil's Night Series) by Penelope Douglas


Series: Devil's Night Series
Genre: Erotic Suspense
Release Date: February 11, 2019



WINTER
Sending him to prison was the worst thing I could’ve done. It didn’t matter that he did the crime or that I wished he was dead. Perhaps I thought I’d have time to disappear before he got out or he’d cool off in jail and be anything but the horror he was.
But I was wrong. Three years came and went too fast, and now he’s anything but calm. Prison only gave him time to plan.
And while I anticipated his vengeance, I didn’t expect this.
He doesn’t want to make me hurt. He wants to make everything hurt.
DAMON
First thing’s first. Get rid of her daddy. He told them I forced her. He told them his little girl was a victim, but I was a kid, too, and she wanted it just as much as I did.
Step two… Give her, her sister, and her mother nowhere to run and no fuel to escape. The Ashby women are alone now and desperate for a knight in shining armor.
But that’s not what’s coming.
No, it’s time I listened to my father and took control of my future. It’s time I showed them all—my family, her family, my friends—that I will never change and that I have no other ambition than to be the nightmare of their lives.
Starting with her.
She’ll be so scared, she won’t even be safe in her own head by the time I’m done with her. And the best part is I won’t have to break into her home to do it.
As the new man of the house I have all the keys.

The Day the Jerk Started Falling by Max Monroe

TDTJSF BT Banner.jpg

Rule number one: don’t fall for your best friend’s brother.

Rule number two: don’t fall for jerks.

But rules go out the window the day the jerk starts falling...

 

The Jerk Duet is complete!

The Day the Jerk Started Falling, the fun and flirty conclusion of The Jerk Duet, from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe is available NOW!

BOOK TWO_JERK DUET_TheDayTheJerkStartedFalling_Cover


My name is Oliver Arsen, but my mates call me Ollie.
I live hard and love harder, and it’s love that usually gets me in the most trouble.
According to the greater population, I’m the ultimate jerk.
My affection tends to be short-lived—a quality I’ve been assured multiple times by the fairer sex isn’t becoming—and the leaving part of loving and leaving has always come natural.
At least, it used to.
Until her.
Luciana Wright.
She’s an American bombshell and my sister’s best friend—a woman so wrong for
me, it’s written in the waves.
And she’s the reason we’re all here.
The reason I have to go back to explain how it all went wrong.
To the day the jerk started falling.

Swoon. That's the best way to describe Ollie Arsen. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the conclusion to this duet. I wanted to hear what Ollie had to say. The Day the Jerk Started Falling is book two and you must read these in order.

Again this story is told in a unique way and I enjoyed how Max Monroe did it. It's refreshing to get something new. In book one we got Lucky's podcasts. Now we get Ollie's. We get to get his side on everything we saw in book one. While I enjoyed finding out what he was thinking, at times it seemed to drag on. I needed to know what was going to happen in the present! It seemed very repetitive. I think a lot of that could be because these books were released just a week apart so everything was still very fresh. It's a bit of a double edged sword. You want the books to be released close together so you don't have a long wait, but because they are, you don't need a refresher for half the book to remind you of what happened.

I had to know how this book was going to play out so I  dove in, pushed through, and couldn't read fast enough to see how Lucky and Ollie ended up. Max Monroe did what they do best. I laughed, I swooned, and I got all the feels. So many feels! Was this my favorite Max Monroe series? No. But in the end I did enjoy it. Max Monroe will always be an instant one click for me and I'll read whatever they throw my way.


  Podcast Series: The Day the Jerk Started Falling with Oliver Arsen   Dating is easy, mates. The women are plentiful, the opportunities abundant, and the fun endless.   I’ve taken a woman night surfing—only to end up using the board and the motion of the water for another purpose—jetted over to New Zealand for a two-day holiday with another, and given more than one a fair tour of my bedroom.   No effort overspent, I enjoyed every moment of it.   I live hard and love harder, but it’s the second one that usually gets me in the most trouble. My affection tends to be short-lived—a quality I’ve been assured multiple times by the fairer sex isn’t becoming.   Basically, according to the greater population, I’m the ultimate jerk.   And if you grouped the lot of my past conquests together and set me ablaze, not one of them would piss on me to save my life.   Taking the next step, having a long-term relationship, has never been my forte.   Commitment is hard. The thought of a one-woman wank for the rest of my life has barely ever been conceivable, let alone possible, and I have to blame that for how badly it all went.   When I look back at my behavior, there has to be a reason.   A reason, friends, that when it came to Luciana Wright, I fucked it all up.   I’ve been cursed out, stomped on, slapped. Had my balls volleyed, spat on, and punched. And even, on one occasion, nearly run over by a car with a madwoman behind the wheel.   But I’ve never been through the brutal torture of love.   Until Lucky.   She’s an American bombshell and my sister’s best friend—a woman so wrong for me, it should be written in the waves. And she’s the reason we’re all here.   The exact reason why I strong-armed the lovely, albeit slightly hard-ass, editor of this fantastic website to let an Aussie bloke like me prattle on about his love woes. [chuckles]   Vanessa, if you’re listening, I’m certain your balls are bigger than just about every man out there. And trust me, that is a compliment. [chuckles again]   Also, thank you for your hospitality via podcast permission. It is much appreciated.   And you, dear listeners, you should know that for the next God only knows how many episodes of this podcast series, I’m going to spend my time talking directly to Lucky. If you’re not her, but you’d like to keep listening, I urge you to help me. Help me by hearing me out. Help me by relating to my story. Help me plead my case. And to really prepare yourself to get the whole tale from both sides, listen to her podcast first. [distinct pause]   I had you in my grasp, Lucky, but now it’s fallen apart.   And in order to explain how it happened—to explain myself—I feel like I have to go back to the day it all began.   To the day the jerk started falling.

Muffin Top by Avery Flynn

Muffin Top RB Banner.jpg

“Smart, sassy, and utterly delightful! Get ready to fall head-over-heels in love with Lucy, one of the wittiest and most inspiring heroines I’ve ever met!” - Annika Martin New York Times bestselling author
Muffin Top, a hot romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn is available now!


Muffin Top 1600px.jpg



The only thing about me that’s a size zero is the filter on my mouth. I’ve got a big personality, a big rack, and a big number on the scale. And I’m perfectly fine with that.
But when some random guy suggests I might not be eating alone if I’d ordered a salad instead of a hamburger I’m shocked silent, which is a feat, trust me.
That brings us to one sexy fireman named Frankie Hartigan. He’s hot. He’s funny… And he’s just apologized for being late for our “date” then glared at the fat-shaming jerk. Next thing I know, he’s sitting down and ordering himself dinner.
I have no problem telling him I don’t need a pity date . . . unless of course it’s to my high school reunion next week. Oops where did that last bit come from? And what do I do now that he’s said yes?!
Because this is no make-over story, and I think Frankie is using me for something. I just have to figure out what…

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip. She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name. Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Reveling in Sin by Meghan March

  
   


Whitney Gable is the kind of woman you fight to the death to protect. To keep. To cherish. I’ve finally learned my lesson, and it’s time to prove I’m the man who’s worthy of her. I don’t care what it takes, because failure is not an option. No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever.   

iBooks  |  Amazon US  | Amazon UK  | Amazon AU | Kobo | BN


Woah. I'm pretty sure I have whiplash after finishing this book. My head is still spinning trying to take in everything that happened. Meghan gives you no time to breathe while reading the final book in this trilogy. Reveling in Sin is an epic conclusion to this series. 

Lincoln and Whitney's story isn't an easy one. They have both had to fight for what they want. Overcoming so many obstacles, they deserve a happy ending. Their love has endured more than most couples have in a life time. What I loved most about them is that their love never wavered. They knew what they wanted and they fought for it, hard. 

Reveling in Sin follows they same flow as the previous two books. Alternating between past and present we find out all the details that piece this story together seamlessly. There were so many jaw dropping moments that I pretty much read the entire book with my mouth gaping like a fish. I applaud Meghan March for her ability to be able to keep you guessing until the final page. If you think you've figured out where this book is going you're wrong. I promise you, you're wrong. Reveling in Sin will twist you up and keep you glued to every word on every page until the very end. 
I was all over the place with the Sin Trilogy. Richer Than Sin (#1) grabbed me right away and lured me into the family feud between the Riscoffs and the Gables. It was fast, sexy and fueled by drama. Guilty as Sin (#2) almost lost me. I struggled big time and lost my affection for the characters, mostly Whitney Gable. Because of the sour taste left behind from ‘Guilty’, Revealing in Sin (#3) didn’t have the fairest shot right at the start. Lingering feelings from ‘Guilty’ bleed over and as the story unfolded there were reminders of what bothered me from ‘Guilty’. However, as I delved deeper and things began to get twistier, it was hard not to begin to find my way back. I liked Lincoln throughout and that grew as ‘Revealing’ went on. Aside from secondary characters, Lincoln was my saving grace. Yes, he was all alpha and sexy, but he was also intelligent, strong, and loyal….likeable.  There was a lot going on in ‘Revealing’...A LOT. Like hold-onto-your-seats kind of a lot. Some of it really shook me and some of it not so much. Some was just a little too much for me. The Sin Trilogy may not have been my favorite but on a whole I wound up enjoying it. Meghan’s trilogy format, specifically her Suspense Romance novels, is awesome. She has a real talent and gift for taking the reader on a ride and casting a spell over them as they become immersed in her worlds and I can’t wait for the next ride.
     

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.   A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends. Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes. I didn’t know or care what her name was. Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man. She hates me, and she should. I objected on her wedding day. Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger. They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable. I’ll never be done with her.

Guilty until proven innocent. That’s the way the world works, right? I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable. The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules. If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.
