Coming Soon Must Read Debt by Rachel Dunning Coming Out March 30, 2016


I push my head back against the wall, not sure what’s coming, but not fighting it either. 

“Who are you?” he repeats. 

“I...I don’t know what you mean.”

“I see you at a bar in Texas, then I look for you all over Nashville. And suddenly you’re at my side in a hospital, following me into this warehouse. Who are you?”

“I didn’t follow you into the warehouse. You needed to pick up your truck, and you were stumbling.”


“So I wanted to make sure you were OK.”


And I want you to take my clothes off and I want us to live happily ever after. “That’s it.”

Logan grins, a deadly look for him with his dimples. “Don’t do that,” I say.



“Why not?”

Because you’re beautiful. “Just don’t.”


He stops. Lifts his head up again, still smiling. “You’re afraid,” he says.


“Of me.”


“And yet, you’re here.”

I clear my throat. “Y—yes.”


Because I’m an idiot. And you turn me on. And I’m an idiot. And you turn me on.


My hand slides over to his jeans unwittingly, rubbing his leg. “I want to kiss you again,” I say. I want to kiss you because you’ve taken my heart with your words and I need it back. 


I have no desire to settle down. 

I have no desire to make Kyla be the last woman I’m ever with.

But, damn it, I’d like to be given a chance to do those things. Does she even feel anything for me?

I know I do.

I feel something. 

Not love. Something else. 

Like I need her.

Like I’d stop breathing without her. 

Like the sun would stop being so bright or the sounds of the world so sweet if she disappeared.


She’ll soften me. 

She’ll break me.

But I don’t care.


“Tell me for real,” I say. “Tell me what I didn’t guess about you.”

Logan doesn’t answer, and already I’m regretting the question. I know something hurt him, but who am I to ask him about it so soon? I’m breaking my rule, I want to know him, I want to know everything about him.

He shifts his arm so that my head is no longer resting on it, leans forward. 

I did overstep it, but I don’t care. Maybe this is the last time I’ll ever see him again, and I want to get everything I can out of it, not only the sex I’ll demand later. 

He looks down at his feet, then at me. 

He inhales a deep breath, and then he says something to me that will forever change the way I think about the world. He tells me a story that puts my own life in perspective, and makes me question what I’ve held dear, and what’s really important in life. 

He tells me about how he lost his father. And his mother. 

And why he fights.

And why he continues to fight. And what he really sees when he’s in that cage, the hate, the fury, the pain. 

By the end of it all, my world is shattered, the floor is shaking, I have no stability. 

By the end of it, I know one thing, and I know it to my core, my very fiber. And I don’t care if it’s too soon, I believe in intuition, I believe in it more now than ever. 

The thing I know is this:

I love this man. I love him irrevocably. I love him more than I’ve ever loved anyone. 

And I know I will lose him. 

I know it. More intuition. 

But I love his very soul. 


I hold on to Logan with all the strength I can muster. 

Somehow, if I let him go, I think I’ll drown.


She looks at me with eyes that say something to me. They’re the eyes of someone who’s realized something. Not happy, not excited, not sad. A bit of all of it. I think the word they use for that crazy mixture of emotions is Love.

“He is magnetic and an Alpha to his core.”
Lunaland Books ☆☆☆☆☆ Review

“I was sucked into this book from page one!
“The Debt Collector is sexy as sin and the ultimate Alpha male!!”
Alpha Book Club ☆☆☆☆☆ Review

By Rachel Dunning
Expected Release Date:
March 30, 2016

What’s it about?

The Debt Collector

I pay my debts, and I expect others to. 

I was raised in the slums of London, I knew nothing of privilege. My father was murdered when I was seventeen. Morty figured my father's passing meant I would automatically take on dad's debts. I refused. 

And I paid for that refusal. 

So did my sister. 

So now I fight. All I know how to do is fight. The best cash is in the states, so that's where I am now. A big fish called Vito came along offering me a "favor" when I arrived.

Another debt.

I paid for that one too. 

I knew Kyla Hensley would be trouble when I met her. But I wanted her. I could see through the falsehood of her wannabe-slutty clothes and her sexy legs. So I chased her. 

Besides, trouble is my middle name. 
Kyla Hensley

I was brought up in privilege, but I lacked everything else. My father is a business tycoon who buys and sells and doesn't care who gets rolled over in the process. 

I never knew my mother, and all I have of her is a photo with a note scrawled on the back in French saying "I'm sorry." The only Female Figure I had growing up is my dad's wife who is a bleach blond with seven boob jobs. We never bonded.

I drink. I party. I meet guys.

But I wasn't always like that. 

I've had a string of lovers in the last few years, the worst and most recent of which was Vince Somerset. My best friend Vera was dating a guy called Rory Cansoom who is the opposite of Vince in so many ways, and yet so the same. 

She and I hit the road for the summer, getting away from the two college psychos and just trying to have some fun. 

But there's a funny thing about trouble, the more you run from it, the more it finds you. 

Which is when I met the Debt Collector. 

It was only supposed to be sex. He made that clear. I made that clear. 

That's all it was supposed to be.

I never expected to fall in love. I never expected to fall so deeply, madly, uncomfortably in love with a man who is wrong, so wrong for me. 

And unbelievably right.

Review On Damage Done by Amanda Panitch


22 minutes separate Julia Vann’s before and after.

Before: Julia had a twin brother, a boyfriend, and a best friend.

After: She has a new identity, a new hometown, and memories of those twenty-two minutes that refuse to come into focus. At least, that’s what she tells the police.

Now that she’s Lucy Black, she's able to begin again. She's even getting used to the empty bedroom where her brother should be. And her fresh start has attracted the attention of one of the hottest guys in school, a boy who will do anything to protect her. But when someone much more dangerous also takes notice, Lucy's forced to confront the dark secrets she thought were safely left behind.

One thing is clear: The damage done can never be erased. It’s only just beginning. . . . 



This book was really amazing. I went in reading it with an open mind because I knew it was going to be a thriller and have its ups and downs and highs and lows. So as I started reading it I was like holy hell this is a great book, a hidden jem.

Julia Vann has everything. She has a boyfriend and a twin brother who means everything to her and a best friend she wouldn't trade the world for. Then all it takes is 22 minutes to change her life as well as her family's life. She has become the gossip of her town and her family is ready to move on and get a fresh start by moving and changing their names.

So now Julia is Lucy Black in a new school and new house. She has a new best friend and a new boyfriend but things are still the same for her. See her brother is accused of doing a horrible crime and her family now has a scarlet letter on their backs and they are ready to move on. But Lucy still can't get used to the name change and the new school and the boy who will do anything for her.

As Lucy tries to move on her brother and his therapist come back into her life and start to change things up and she is worried that they will expose the truth of really happen in her old school that has changed her life as well as her family's life.

Will Julia Vann be exposed or will she be safe from her hidden past....... Only one person can expose the truth and in the end will he tell the world what really happened???????? 

About The Author:

I wrote my first book, The Two Sisters, when I was a little kid; it was an illustrated tale about two sisters who just couldn’t get along and the way the brilliant, fun, worldly older sister showed the obnoxious, annoying, and inexplicably smelly little sister the light (shout-out to my younger sister. Love you!). Now I’m the author of DAMAGE DONE (out now!) and NEVER MISSING, NEVER FOUND, out in June 2016. I’m represented by Merrilee Heifetz of Writers House and she is the best ever.

I also do ghostwriting and work-for-hire in young adult fiction/non-fiction, middle grade fiction/non-fiction, and adult fiction. If you’re looking for a writer for a project, whether it’s your own or it’s IP, email me! I’d love to discuss.

When I’m not writing or reading, I’m usually trying out a new restaurant, trying out a new recipe, or thinking about food in some way, shape, or form, or else I’m out running or hiking. I also like to complain about how terrible it is to live in New York City, because I grew up in the New Jersey Pine Barrens where I was surrounded by trees and animals and now I’m surrounded by other people and concrete and garbage.

To make up for THE TWO SISTERS, I promised my sister I would give a public shout-out to her pet tortoise. Hi, Leo! Now we’re even.

Release Day Blitz For Hidden Threat By Sherri Hayes

Hidden Threat (Hidden Threat #1) by Sherri Hayes
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: January 28, 2016

Book Summary:

Cali Stanton has one goal in life, being a doctor. She has spent the last two years helping the less fortunate in Africa. It’s a job she loves and intends to do for the foreseeable future. That is until she receives a call from her father saying he’s been injured and needs her back in Chicago. Less than a week later she finds herself behind her father’s desk at Stanton Enterprises, running the family business…something she never wanted to do. But how could she say no to her father when he insists that she is the only one he can trust?

Matthew Andersen and his brother, Jason, have spent the last two years managing security at Stanton Enterprises. However, someone is determined to take down the company and with it its acting CEO, Cali Stanton.

Cali and Matthew must work together to find out who is behind the threats to not only the company but to Cali herself while they fight their growing attraction for each other. Can they figure out the hidden threat before it’s too late?


“Thank you for coming with me. I don’t know if I would have been able to do what you did.” Matthew smirked, trying to lighten the mood. “At least, not with the same results.”

Cali blushed and Matthew almost lost it. He wanted to touch her, to crush her body against his and kiss her within an inch of her life.

Instead, he backed toward the elevators. “I’ll see you tomorrow.”

She grinned and began walking to her car.

He hesitated, then shook his head and continued toward the elevator. 

As he waited for the elevator to reach him, he heard an engine rev. A small smile pulled at his lips as he thought of Cali heading home. 

The elevator dinged right as a squeal of tires caught his attention. He whirled around in time to see a dark blue sedan he didn’t recognize speed up the exit ramp.

His heart pounded in his chest as he took off at a full-out run.


Author Bio:

Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn't good at spelling, or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.

At the age of thirty, all of that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending, and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.

Nearly eight years later, Sherri is the author of eight full-length novels, and two short stories. Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create.

Welcome to Serpent's Kiss (Serpent's Kiss 0.5)

After losing her husband unexpectedly, Katrina Mayer decided to open Serpent’s Kiss. She wanted it to be a place where she and her fellow kinksters could play and socialize. 

Five years after the doors opened, the club is everything she’d hoped it would be. On Friday and Saturday nights, Serpent’s Kiss is filled with men and women who share a similar desire to explore the pleasures BDSM has to offer. The club has continued to grow, and over the years, many of its members have become friends.

The one thing Katrina didn’t expect when she’d decided to open a club was the human drama that came with it. Learning to balance her life as the club mistress has taken some getting used to, but she wouldn’t change a thing. 

Beth Davenport has no interest in getting involved with another man for the foreseeable future. To say her last relationship ended in disaster would be a colossal understatement. The only reason she agrees to put in an appearance at Serpent’s Kiss, a private kink club in downtown St. Louis, is because her best friend, Nicole, won’t quit nagging her. When she walks in the door that night, the last thing she expects to do is meet a man who will have her reconsidering her ban on men.

As a captain with the St. Louis Fire Department, Drew Parker is used to being in charge. His crew relies on him to make sure they know what they’re doing and return home to their families after every shift. It isn’t, however, what he wants in a relationship. Drew decides to join Serpent’s Kiss to see if what appeals to him in fantasy is something he wants to explore in the real world. He’s also hoping that he’ll be lucky enough to meet a woman with whom he can explore his desires. The night Beth walks into the club, he is intrigued. Drew has to get to know her better.

After what happened to her, Beth is reluctant to get involved with Drew. It doesn’t matter that he is sweet and charming. She’s been burned before and Beth doesn’t think she can survive having her heart crushed again. Drew, however, won’t take no for an answer. He wants a relationship and is determined to chip away at her defenses until she relents. Will she give him a chance, or did her ex leave her with scars too deep to heal?

EXCERPT (Brady):

Victoria narrowed her eyes and asked, “Are you keeping something from us?” “No,” I practically shouted, then decided to get her to back off by giving her what she wanted. “You know what, go ahead… the living room is all yours. Decorate away. Just let me know what the damage is when you’re done. “Yay!” she replied, her face brightening with excitement. “Now, me and the little man are going to watch some football in the other room. Don’t go too crazy.” “I won’t,” she said, moving to set the chandelier back down. Before we could disappear into the sanctuary of my room, Victoria stopped me in my tracks when she called after me in a singsong voice, “Don’t think I’m distracted by you giving me what I want, Brady. I’m going to find out what secret you’re keeping.” Rather than give myself away by responding, I shook my head in response and kept on my path to safety. “Your mom scares me a little,” I told Dec as I shut my bedroom door behind us.

One day I was be-bopping along jamming to the music in my head while wondering if my thighs could handle grabbing a cupcake on the way home. The next thing I knew, my entire world crashed and burned. 

I used to wake up at night in a sweat, crying because I’d dreamt that my husband was cheating on me, or that he hated me, and resented my kids. He’d always hold me close and tell me it was all just a dream, that he loved me and our family and that he’d never let me go.

 He was a f*cking liar. Now I spend my days taking photos of scum just like him, trying to be a champion for other's being taken advantage of by the losers in our town, and my nights being a single mom to my beautiful twins. 

I've got great friends who have my back, and a sexy, mysterious motorcycle man who keeps showing up when I need him. 

Maybe things are starting to look up, and one thing's for sure... There's always room for cupcakes.

Cover Reveal For BrokenBy Rachael Orman RELEASE DATE: TBD


Rachel Orman

All proceeds will be donated to the Shuskey family to help with medical bills.

Life can be hard. Life can break you. What do you do then?

Faith has been living in a physically abusive marriage for years. What she doesn't expect is for everything in her life to change unexpectedly. Her husband loses his job, which forces her to go back to work.

Working as an Emergency Room nurse forces her to hide her home life while also gives her a freedom she hasn't had in the five years since she married.

It also gives her the out she has been so desperately seeking.

However, once she is free from the man who has held her down and abused her for so long, she fears that it won't last. He isn't willing to let her go easily.

While she is learning to love in a normal and peaceful environment, she fears for her life all the same.

She refuses to let her ex get a hold of her again, but what happens if he does? Can she handle living that life again after finally experiencing the tender love of another?

NOTE: This is not a happy story. This story has non con scenes and doesn't not have a HEA. There are many things that could be triggers for many people so be forewarned going in. Abuse and suicide are two of the major ones, but not the only ones.

Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work. I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category. I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I'll write just about anything once to learn from it. I've even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you'll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next. Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.

Pistol Fanny’s – Hank & Delilah by Annie Rose Welch Genre: Romantic Suspense FREE! January 21 – 25

Pistol Fanny’s – Hank & Delilah, 

Annie Rose Welch

Genre: Romantic Suspense


January 21 – 25

Never fall in love with a bank robber. 

Especially if she’s the one who robbed your bank, took you hostage, and dumped you unconscious at the local convenience store. And definitely not if you are the assistant district attorney of Tupelo, Mississippi. 

This is the advice Hank Huckleberry Rivers would have given himself, back when he was a man who vowed to always walk on the right side of the law. The same law that had seemed sacrosanct ever since the day he and his friends watched as two men were murdered right below their tree house. 

Falling in love with a dangerous criminal can have life-altering consequences, though. And when the past and the present meet head-on, Hank finds himself in more trouble than he ever bargained for. He must run to save his life, daring to find answers to the questions threatening his safety and his heart, as the killer below the tree house comes after Hank—and his pistol-wielding bank robber. 

It’s a simple case of love in the first degree.

Available on All Amazon Outlets.

Even so, these mystical women in heels who were robbing and donating continued to make headlines, and banks across the states had never been busier. Men were lining up, never taking such an interest in where their money was stashed, all in hopes of catching a glimpse of them.

Posters were made, memes popped up like mushrooms in a wet field online, and a comic strip was dedicated to these women. Pistollette was bigger than life, her legs spread apart, a pistol in each hand, looking down on the world. That exaggerated smile on her face, those brown blinking eyes. 

Her sisters were right beside her, blowing things up, winking and playing the boom box, tap dancing by a door, flipping on counters. Close to their hairlines, a zipper, and a clear thin line that separated their two sides. The good and the bad. The zipper was the key to their true identity. And below them all were men, amplified cartoon hearts floating from their chests, stars in their eyes, and lust in their smiles.

The slogan for these women—not only do they steal your money, they collect interest on your heart.

The entire world knew who they were. Headlines read: Maybe coming to a bank near you.

Propaganda hung in alleys, on fences, above urinals, and below in underground train stations. They were up in pool halls, in dive bars, and on the walls of the swankiest clubs in New York. They had become art. Modern day sophisticate meets old lawless ruggedness. A huge billboard hung in Hollywood, showing the girls appearing out of smoke: Stealing the hearts of the rich guys, giving to the poor ones. Pistollette and her Sirens will take you by storm! They were for the good guys of the world who cared enough to figure it out.

They were elusive and mysterious, and there was a reward for any man who would dare remove any of their masks. The world was sure underneath the masquerades were the most beautiful faces any man had ever seen. No one ever tried. They were too stupefied in their presence. They were truck drivers’ and bikers’ dreams, doctors’ and lawyers’ fantasies.

The hoopla went on and on.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California).

Her writing career began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightening bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn't stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm.

When she's not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. Deciding on a whim to hitch up those same wagons, Annie currently resides in Texas (where everything is bigger) with her husband, daughter, and their two peculiar dogs, Boudreaux and Tabasco (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent).
