EXCERPT:

Chapter One

KATE

He clinical smell of detergent penetrates my senses and my eyes flutter open. I find myself staring at a white-tiled commercial ceiling, questioning if I am awake or asleep – though it does seem like a rather strange dream to have. I blink. The ceiling remains. My senses give my brain a nudge and it fires up but provides no answers. Brows wrinkling in confusion, I begin trying to determine what is going on.

One thing I am certain of, is that my body is sore and stiff. Muscles aching, I remain as I am, twisting my head to the right. The sun glares through a wide, steel window. From the sun’s height in the sky, I estimate it has been there some time.

A feeling of guilt settles over me. It appears sleeping in isn’t something I indulge in.

To my right, between the bed and window, is a small white cupboard and a plastic-coated armchair. Sunflowers sit in a vase on the bedside cupboard. I like sunflowers. Though at this moment, I fail to recall why.

An irritating beep-beep sound comes from my left, and I swing my eyes in that direction, lifting my head slightly. Wires litter my body and a pink cellular hospital blanket covers me. The beeping begins to make sense, along with the plastic-coated chair and wires. I am in a hospital.

A sigh escapes my lips as I resist the urge to panic. Instead, I acknowledge my dislike of hospitals. Then again, name a patient or visitor who likes them. There is that clinical smell that lingers long after you have left, and they are full of sick people. At present, I am reluctant to place myself in the ‘sick people’ category, even if my brain is screaming at me, telling me I wouldn’t be here if I was fit and well.

Tentatively, I sniff the air. This hospital does smell nicer than the ones I have stayed in and visited before. At present, I am unable to remember ever spending time in or visiting a hospital, though I’m sure I have done so.

My eyes widen and adrenalin is released into my bloodstream. Hands shaking, my breathing quickens. Panic grips me. Why can’t I remember anything? My eyes fly round the room, unseeing. What has happened to me?

If I am in a hospital, I am safe and cared for. Quantifying this fact allows reason to be heard. Though my heart still hammers, its beat is more regular than it was. My memories are in there, somewhere, I just need to find them. It’s probably the drugs they have given me, clouding and confusing my brain.

Closing my eyes, I demand that my brain starts its cognitive processing. My demand falls into a black hole of nothingness. Not giving up, I decide to think about the sunflowers, as they’d triggered a feeling of happiness. Unfortunately, this simple request is met with vacuity, and a hollow feeling takes up residence in the pit of my stomach. The only mental input I receive is that sunflowers are bright, cheery plants.

My eyes fly open and I face the frightening fact that my life is a blank.

Ash - Book 3 The Silk Rope Masters - Erotic Romance - BDSM - Sex Toys - Voyeurism #EroticRomance #BDSM #SexToys #Voyeurism

Suzy Shearer is back with Ash, book 3 in The Silk Rope Masters series. 

This is an adult erotic romance featuring BDSM, sex toys, voyeurism, and more.

Gorgeous cover!

_______________

ASH

The Silk Rope Masters - Book Two

by Suzy Shearer

Evernight - Amazon - Smashwords


They ooze power, control, natural dominance - and sex. They are The Silk Rope Masters.​

None have ever found love but watch out! When they fall, they'll fall fast and hard!


Sophie Laurent, 51, is filling in for her chef brother at Silk Rope when she comes face-to-face with Master Ash. A natural born Dom, Ash (Reyansh) Siddiqi, 53, is club co-owner. A confirmed bachelor, never been in love, never been in a relationship. He takes his pleasures without romantic involvement, and always only at the club.

But when Sophie stepped into the club chef's shoes Ash was caught and he fell hard and fast. He was besotted and acting like a teenager instead of the strong dominant man he was.

Unfortunately for Ash it was obvious Sophie disliked him. His heart broke as he tried to accept her rejection of him.

Ash decides he needs to be the Dom he is – strong and confident, then all he has to do is come up with a way to change her mind before her brother returns and she’s out of his life forever.

 

Be Warned: BDSM, anal sex, sex toys, voyeurism, flogging, public exhibition 

This is an erotic romance. There are explicit sexual descriptions and explicit language used throughout. It will offend some readers.

 

EXCERPT:  

Two Sundays after banning Ash from the kitchen, it was very quiet at work. The weather had probably kept a lot of members away. She and Calder had everything cleaned by nine.

“Calder, you may as well go home. There isn’t much left, only a few plates to wash. I doubt anyone else will come down for food.”

“Are you sure?”

“Positive. I’ll get out of here by ten-fifteen.”

“Okay then. I’ll see you on Thursday. ’Night.”

“Goodnight.”

Sophie tidied the kitchen and waited until ten before packing up. As she was about to leave, she pulled the pins from her hair and tossed her glasses in her bag. Then she decided it was a good opportunity to watch one of the scenes.

She wandered along the ground floor then climbed up the stairs and walked along the corridor, surprised when she saw Emily and Jake. They hadn’t been in since last week due to some family function they went to out of state and Sophie didn’t think they’d be here. She sat down to watch. Emily was face-down on a bench, her ass high in the air, her wrists and ankles cuffed. She wore a corset but no panties and Jake was using a flogger on her. Sophie knew it was a flogger because Emily had explained to her about various implements people use. Emily’s butt cheeks were angry-looking, streaked, and red, but obviously she was enjoying it, judging by the sexy-sounding moans coming from her. It shocked Sophie to discover how aroused it had her by simply watching.

Every now and again, Jake would whisper something to Emily and her little mewls would get louder. She couldn’t help but see he was erect despite the leathers covering his groin, and it only added to her own excitement. When he began fingering Emily’s asshole and pussy, Sophie had to push her legs together.

Jake must have used his hand in her pussy because the next thing, Emily was shouting as she came. Sophie thought Jake would let her up but instead, he picked up the flogger with one hand and kept his other between her legs. He was flogging her and obviously fucking her with his hand because she was twisting her head back and forth, mewling loudly as he kept it up.

Sophie thought if anyone were to come up to her now, they’d know exactly how much the scene was affecting her. Her breath came in little gasps and her heart thudded against her ribcage as if searching for a way to escape. Sophie peeped quickly around, not wanting anyone to see her this turned on.

She groaned—Ash. He was talking to another member down one end of the corridor but his gaze was on her.

Merde! I can’t be here! If he comes to me…

Awakened by Him - Zinklaus Duet #1 - Romantic Suspense - and a Giveaway #Romance #Suspense #RomanticSuspense #Giveaway

Eyta Jade is here to tell us about her romantic suspense tale Awakened by Him, book one in her Zinklaus Duet series.

She's also hosting a great giveaway.
_____________

Awakened by Him
Eyta Jade
(Zinklaus Duet, #1)
Publication date: August 6th 2020
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Falling into him was a dance with destiny; little did she know it would be her unravelling.

Zina at 24 and fresh out of the academic world, arrives in London for a new paralegal job. She is thrown for a loop when her chance at something new and uncomplicated is threatened from the moment she meets business magnate, Niklaus Clarke.

He wants more from her than she’s willing to give, because giving him more means undoing her past which she’s been running from. Unable to resist the undeniable attraction she feels or the allure of the unyielding billionaire who didn’t get to where he is by giving up, Zina surrenders.

What should have been a mere awakening turns into blurred lines and shattering of boundaries. Until their secrets, lies and half-truths threaten the gravity that pulls them toward each other.

Bridges will be crossed, bridges will be burnt. But, will bridges be rebuilt?

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

“Open,” Niklaus said.

So bossy, I thought.

We were on his couch, facing each other as he attempted to feed me comfort food. A.K.A. Haagen-Dazs caramel cone.

“Why do you have to feed me?” I argued, finding solace in a possible banter to distract me from my solemn mood.

He heaved a sigh, looking at me intently without lowering the spoon of ice cream from where it was—in front of my mouth. “My sweet baby, you are sad and won’t tell me why.” His lips spread in a thin, but small sad smile. “But, this I can do for you. Let me take care of you. Let me feed you.”

Tears stung my eyes as I struggled with my emotions. Such simple words evoked powerful feelings in me. All he wanted was to do something nice for me, and yet I remained difficult. So I opened for him, letting him feed me to his satisfaction. I watched his eyes lit up every time I opened for another spoon.

The fact that he took so much pleasure in doing something so mundane was everything—the simple things. My heart was in trouble and at that moment, I didn’t care.

When he was done pleasuring me with the taste of rich caramel swirl that only Haagen-Dazs could deliver, he sprawled into the arm of the sofa.

“Come.” He said, opening his arms to welcome me. And, like a dog hungry for affection, I turned, reclining into him and laying my body on his chest.

His arms wrapped around me instantly, and I closed my eyes.

I felt safe and at home in his arms. Ashraf and his parents had taken me in when I was homeless; my brother had come into my life around when the well, awkward night with Ashraf happened, and we grew apart for a few months. He’d come in and filled a hole created by temporary emotional separation from Ashraf.

But the feeling of safety I felt in the arms of Niklaus was different. He wasn’t filling any vacant space. It was like he’d always had a place in my heart, waiting for him to step in and take his place. I’d never felt more at peace, so wanted, so cherished, and all he had to do was feed me ice cream and wrap his arms around me.

Am I falling for him? I wondered. I physically shook my head, wading off the idea, but not before he noticed.
“What?” he asked.

I couldn’t very well tell him my heart was wondering if I was falling for him, but that same heart was convinced the answer was negative.

So, I said instead, ‘tell me something about you.”

He chuckled, the slight shaking of his body as he did so warming me all over. “Am I supposed to believe you haven’t used the school of Google to do your private investigation on me?”

“Would most of what I find there tell me anything real about you?” I challenged.

“No,” he confirmed with a certain resentment.

I shrugged. “Moreover, I haven’t stalked you. I don’t do social media or track people on the internet.” I explained.

There was the exception of the night at his parents, but those were for professional reasons directed at his father, and didn’t count.

His arms tightened around me like he couldn’t get enough of me. “You, doux bebe are one of a kind.”

I smiled. It was nice to hear that someone saw me as a unique being. But, the gag was—he was truly the special one.

He’d awakened me, and he apparently had the power to make me feel safe and distract me.

“I’ll start. I’ve always wanted a dog, and I will get one soon.”

“Hmmm…I think when I was young, I did too. But, somewhere along the way, I forgot.”

I laughed. “Your turn.”

“I just told you I wanted a dog too. That was my something.”

I laughed some more at his manipulative and creative way of deflecting.

If I was terrible at revealing things about myself, he was impossible.

We were a match made in heaven. But what would that mean for us in the long term?

The fact that I was thinking of the future, despite insisting that we were just fuck buddies told me one thing—even if I was unable to admit that I might have been falling for him, what I knew for sure was that I was in trouble. My heart was in trouble.

Author Bio:

When Eyta Jade read Danielle Steele’s full circle, a dream was born. A dream to evoke the kind of emotions that reading Full Circle did for her.

Eyta knew that no matter what or how long it took, she would always find her way to becoming an author.

When Eyta isn’t penning down tastefully written steamy romance stories, you’d find her reading one instead.

Lest we forget, she obsesses over wine, soul and RnB music.

V.R. Street is here to tell us about her chick lit romance Lucky.

Read on for details...

__________________

 


Chick Lit

photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png


Kat Davidson bought the ticket on a whim…she never expected to win.

Will $200 million dollars ruin her life?

At 34, what Kat really wants is to start a family. Her husband, Michael, only wants to be a famous actor. After winning the lottery, life seems perfect – until they get the reality TV show offer.

Maria Gonzales, the ambitious TV producer of Lucky, knows the show will be her ticket to ratings gold – as long as she can amp up the drama between Kat and Michael.

Drama is the last thing Kat wants.

It's not easy, becoming famous. People stop them on the street. Women throw themselves at Michael. It's not the life Kat pictured when she fantasized about being rich.

Winning the lottery flings Kat into a life of luxurious Manhattan mansions, exotic beaches, extravagant sports cars and fabulous clothes.

But will she find the strength she needs to win the life she really wants?



Dive into the book that readers are finding impossible to put down.







About the Author

V. R. Street lives in a New York City suburb with her husband, daughter, son and a cheeky cat named Bob.

Lucky is her first novel, although she has published three nonfiction titles under a different name. The idea for Lucky came from fantasizing about winning the lottery and wondering what it would be like if a reality TV series was shot about lottery winners. Since writing this book, HGTV has come out with a show called My Lottery Dream Home. Sometimes life imitates fiction!

When not writing, V. R. works for a sports broadcasting company. In 2017, she was the winner of an Emmy for her work on the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Marauder - Gangsters of New York Book 2 - Mafia Romance #Romance #MafiaRomance #Gangsters

Bella Di Corte is here to tell us about Marauder, book 2 in her Gangsters of New York series, a mafia romance.

Read on for details...

____________________

   

Title: Marauder (Gangsters of New York, Book 2) 
Author: Bella Di Corte 
Genre: Mafia Romance 
Release Date: August 7, 2020 



He stole my heart out of revenge. There was one thing I always thought was mine to give: my heart. I never imagined a marauder would steal it out of vengeance—vengeance that had nothing to do with me. His greatest enemy happened to be the man in love with me, and somehow I became nothing but a pawn. I was no damsel in distress, though. More like an archer, ready to battle. And my target? The marauder himself. Cashel “Cash” Kelly. Kelly might have been as gorgeous as he was ruthless, but he had no idea what I’d do to steal it back. Or better yet, get even. She was determined to keep what was mine. They say hearts can’t be stolen unless they’re willing to be. Tell that to the man everyone on the streets called “the marauder.” Me. Because by the time I was through, Keely Ryan’s heart would be mine. And my enemy’s? As good as broken. Trouble was, the archer was precise with her aim, and her arrow was pointed at my heart. Marauder is the second of three books set in the savage world of the Gangsters of New York series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but they are all based in the same world.Pre Order Today!!

My eyes made a slow journey to his, and that was when he locked me in again. “You’re a little psycho in the bedroom, aren’t you, Ms. Ryan?”

“Me? Little?” A boisterous roll of laughter thundered from my mouth.

He made it a point to look down at me, proving his point that I was smaller than him. No man had ever made me feel that way before. It wasn’t totally physical, either, and that made me uncomfortable. I had finally met my match. If I ever told him to go to hell, he’d probably invite me along, because he’d been there before.

Instead of hell, maybe it was time that I invited him to heaven. I leaned in closer, putting my lips close to his neck, right over his pulse point. I made sure my voice was breathy, so warm air blew over his skin. “Wouldn’t you like to know how I am in bed, marauder.”

He grinned and then let out a breath of a laugh. I breathed in and then automatically breathed out. I refused to take him inside of my lungs. He wasn’t my air; he was my suffocation.     


Bella Di Corte has been writing romance for seven years, even longer if you count the stories in her head that were never written down, but she didn’t realize how much she enjoyed writing alphas until recently. Tough guys who walk the line between irredeemable and savable, and the strong women who force them to feel, inspire her to keep putting words to the page.

Apart from writing, Bella loves to spend time with her husband, daughter, and family. She also loves to read, listen to music, cook meals that were passed down to her, and take photographs. She mostly takes pictures of her family (when they let her) and her three crazy dogs.

Bella grew up in New Orleans, a place she considers a creative playground.

She loves to connect with readers, so don’t hesitate to email her at belladicorte@gmail.com if you’d like to reach out.
