BLOG TOUR ~ AT THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT by Shayla Black & Lexi Blake

We are delighted to be on tour with
AT THE PLEASURE OF THE PRESIDENT, the thrilling conclusion of the twisting, page-turning Perfect Gentlemen series by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake

When a dangerous conspiracy threatens to tear them apart, he’ll have to choose between his country and the woman he loves…

Decades ago, ambitious Zack Hayes set his sights on the White House. He’s worked his whole life to become the leader of the free world—attending the right schools, marrying the perfect bride—all to aid his campaign. He didn’t realize someone behind the scenes has been pulling the strings to manipulate Zack and the country he loves into a dangerous position—one he will risk his life to wrench free from. The one thing he can’t risk is Elizabeth Matthews.

From the moment she met Zack Hayes, Liz felt the connection. Serving as his campaign manager and then his press secretary, she accepted that her love for him would remain unrequited. Still, she’d thought they were friends, so when he pushed her aside, she felt the stab in her heart. And when she realizes he’s done it to protect her, nothing will stop Liz from standing by his side—not even the men who would use her as a weapon against him.

As shocking secrets are revealed, Zack and Liz find succor and passion in each other’s arms. When the ultimate villain shows his face, Zack may have to choose between his country and the woman he loves…

Liz’s hands shook as she turned the lock, shutting herself alone in the library with Zack. This was likely the single stupidest thing she’d ever done, but after years of pining for and being in love with him, she couldn’t walk away without knowing how a night with him would feel.She should be in her bed right now, trying to find sleep. But she’d seen the light on and known he’d be here. Like a freaking moth to a flame, she’d found herself leaving the safety of her bedroom and walking right into the predator’s den.

Trembling, she turned now and looked at the only man she’d ever truly loved. He needed her tonight. She saw it in his stare, in the way he clenched his fists at his sides. How much character and willpower had it taken him to allow her this choice? She admired him even more for finding the strength, especially since she’d long suspected that under his façade of intellectualism and perfect manners, he hid a beast.

Tonight, she would find out if she’d been right.

Liz had no illusions. He was capable of breaking her heart into a million pieces, and she’d try not to let him. But even if she only got one night with this man, she would take it because she would rather live with foolish regret than stubborn ignorance.

“Elizabeth.”

His voice hummed in the quiet room, caressing between her ears, vibrating through her body. She flushed with arousal.

This was it. This was happening.

She’d wanted him the moment they’d met, but he’d been forbidden. Now, he stood in front of her with his broad shoulders and his dark hair. Not a president, but a man. Herman—at least for the night.

Liz tried to steady her breathing as she crossed the room to him. Finally, she had permission to touch him the way she’d always wanted. Of course she’d heard him say tonight would be his way all the way, that it wouldn’t be tender, but she wanted one sweet moment she could cling to later before her man turned beast.

She stopped in front of him and reached up, brushing her fingers against the sliver threaded at his temples—the only sign that he was aging. Naturally, it made him even more attractive.

He caught her hand, clasping it in his big one. “Be sure.”

That was Zack, always putting others first, even when his whole world was falling apart. Even when he needed so desperately for himself.

Tonight, she was here for him in every way. Liz hoped with all her heart he understood that.

She would cling to him through the bittersweet hours until dawn, memorizing every touch. Tomorrow they would go back to their corners, and the turmoil would start again. It would be worse because she would know exactly how good it felt to be in his arms. But their passion could only be temporary because he was right, any chance they’d had at a future had died the day Joy had. After her murder and three long years, how could they ever hope for more?

“I’m sure,” she murmured. “I want everything you have to give me tonight.”

TITLE REVEAL ~ BECAUSE HE’S PERFECT

Today we are thrilled to be sharing six titles from six of the BECAUSE HE’S PERFECT authors and a word about their story. 

BECAUSE HE’S PERFECT is a charity anthology, releasing 7th May! 

 

Because He’s Perfect is a charity anthology with all proceeds being donated to the Movember Foundation.

Twenty-two authors ranging from first-time writers to long-term storytellers, seek to dispel all the myths from the romance world about what a perfect hero should be.

Emotional or physical disabilities and illnesses are nothing to be ashamed of; in fact, they can make a man. With the inclusion of a poignantly emotional foreword by NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, this anthology will take you on a journey through comedic laughs, sweet contemporary romance, and into the world of darkness and bizarre.

Joining the authors on their quest are one graphic artist, two photographers, and two models donating their time and efforts to this project, which has inspired all involved.

We hope you will enjoy what you read, ‘Because He’s Perfect’.

Anna Blakely: I have tied my anthology story to my R.I.S.C. Series. Each book in that series has “Risk” in the title. Because my hero’s diagnosis is so unexpected, I decided to name it “Unexpected Risk”.

Danielle Dickson: A quote: He scrubbed a hand over the scruff on his chiseled jaw. “You’re not running for the hills?” I pitied the girls before me that couldn’t see him for all he was. “Not yet, Jack. Not yet.”

Jo-Anne Joseph: My title is a song by Lady Gaga that my husband and I love

Renee Harless: I wanted to write this story to help the readers not to view these so called flaws as a hindrance. These characters will show that perfection is in the eye of the beholder.

KA Sands: My title! Boy, that was a struggle! I don’t know, it just kind of popped in the head when I was having a bath one night. (I get all my good ideas either ironing or in the tub). I hadn’t even written the end on the manuscript, but the title did give me the perfect way to finish it.

Lexxie Couper: One of the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease is the shakes, the trembles. In romance, the word ‘tremble’ is usually associated with a physical response to heightened desire. I wanted to play on the dual nature of the word, when one of the characters experiencing heightened desire can also be trembling for other reasons. That is why I chose it for my title.

More authors to follow next week…

TEMPTING JUSTICE by Michelle Windsor is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing Michelle Windsor’s all-new romantic suspense stand-alone, TEMPTING JUSTICE: Tempting Nights Romance Series. 

 

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law….

My name is Gabrielle Reed.
I’m a date for hire at the elite Temptations Escort Agency.
I love my job. I love sex. And I love the men.
But most of all, I love the power.
I decide who, I decide when, and I decide if.
Until I met Detective Cameron Justice.

I should have told him no when he asked me on a date.
I should have told him no when he asked me to bed.
I should have told him no when he asked to be mine.
And I should have told him the truth instead of the lies.

Because good things don’t happen to girls like me.
I should have known any control I had was an illusion.
And now it’s too late.

Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury.

Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down.

The first female friend I ever had.

And she might just be the first woman I ever fall in love with.

When an emergency means she needs my help running her family’s charity, I’m happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world—taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out.

The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I’m not a man to avoid, that we’re not as unsuited as she believes.

She sees herself as the book-reading, science-loving introvert while I’m the dangerous, outgoing, charmer.

She thinks I love parties and people whereas she prefers pajamas and a takeaway.

What she doesn’t realize is that I like everything about her–the way her smile lights up a room, how her curves light up my imagination, and especially the way her lips taste when coated with tequila.

She’s the first woman I ever fell in love with. I just need to know if she could ever love me too.

We were supposed to be best friends

But turned out to be worst enemies…

Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.

I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.

I took her first kiss.

She took the only thing I loved.

I was poor.

She was rich.

The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.

Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.

Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.

Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.

There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.

Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.

But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.

In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.

Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.

Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.

His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.

Now? Now he is making me pay.
