USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez

Release AMAZON

Growing up, Ramsey Stewart branded my soul in ways time could never heal.

At twelve, he asked me to be his girlfriend.

At thirteen, he gave me my first kiss.

By sixteen, we’d fallen in love, planned a future together, and had our eyes set on the horizon.

Love never fails, right?

But for Ramsey, it did.

Love failed him.

I failed him.

The entire world failed him.

At seventeen, Ramsey was convicted of killing the boy who assaulted me.

Move on,he wrote in his first and only letter from prison.

Start a new life, he urged.

I don’t love you anymore, he lied.

There was no such thing as giving up on Ramsey. Love may have been our curse, but he was mine—then, now, and forever.

So here I am, twelve long years later, waiting for a man I don’t even know to emerge from between the chain link gates.

This is the first book by this author that I have read since her On the Ropes series. And oh my word, can I not explain why it took me so long to return. She holds the magic to create a story so tragically bleak, the reader cannot see how the story will turn out happily. Then, out of nowhere, something happens. The sluggish black mash that is on the page morphs into a bright light full of happiness.

Ramsey and Thea have been friends since they were little, outcasts bonded by tragedy and strife.
Release tells the tale from both past and present. Glimpses of who they were as children, teenagers all the way up to the worst night of their young lives.

Thea lives for the moment of getting him back; only when she does, it isn’t quite what she expected. She doesn’t fully comprehend what it was that Ramsey had to give up and do in order to survive his own private version of Hell. The boy he once was has been dead and buried, not laid to rest but buried alive. So many times I felt my heart weep at what I experienced.

For two people who so clearly loved one another, how could they not make it work?
Why were so many obstacles in their way? What was it that kept him hanging on to his temper by the skin of his teeth?

I found that I went into the first part of this book believing one thing and by the end of the second half my belief system had been tipped on its head.

So many things I want to talk about, but I won’t. The description and wording of this book is breathtaking. I hurt, I cried, I screamed and I laughed. What more can a good book do to you?

It was funny. I’d spent almost half my life surrounded by the biggest, baddest criminals the state of Georgia had been able to capture. Yet, I was terrified of a five-foot-five woman who for some asinine reason was still in love with me.
I couldn’t be around her. Not if I wanted to keep my head straight and my eye on the prize. I had three years before I got off parole. I needed to get a job, tuck away some cash, and, the second I was allowed to leave Georgia, get the hell out of there. Maybe, if I was lucky, I’d be able to convince my sister to come with me. We didn’t have to go far. We could stay in the south if she wanted. South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee—there were schools everywhere. Nora wouldn’t have trouble finding a job. The hardest part would be convincing her to leave Thea.
However, maybe if she did, Thea would finally move on with her life and stop obsessing about me.
I’d known they lived together for a while. I didn’t want anything to do with Thea while I was locked up, but I was happy as hell Nora had someone to lean on. I had been under the impression that Nora had gotten her own place when she found out about my release. I had been under that impression because Nora had straight-up told me she was getting her own place after I’d declared there was no way I was living with Thea.
Now, I was hiding in my room, waiting for Nora to wake up, open my door, and escort me to breakfast like a damn bodyguard so I could avoid confrontation.
Next up in my efforts to kill time was a workout. Sit ups, push-ups, planks, running in place. This was when I realized Nora hadn’t bought me any deodorant.
Another shower.
Another naked lap around the bedroom, and this time, I managed to keep my hands off my cock.
Finally, I got dressed. This required me to pick through a bunch of preppy shit Nora had bought for me to find tattered jeans and a fitted green tee that clung to my chest like a damn glove. In my closet, I found a belt and a pair of distressed brown lace-up boots that maybe could have doubled as combat boots if the war was taking place on a runway. But what the hell did I know about style? I’d been wearing orange or puke beige for almost half my life.
When I was done with all of that and there was still no sign of Nora, I sat on the edge of the bed and decided to give the phone thing a try. I wasn’t totally out of the technology loop. We had computers at the library and we were allowed to use them if we earned the privileges. But they might as well have been dinosaurs compared to the phone she’d bought me. I couldn’t even get it to read my face with the fancy secret laser thing. I gave up trying pretty quickly.
So there I was, bored out of my mind, starving, and poking at my newfound wrinkles in the bathroom mirror, when I heard a knock at my door.
“Ramsey?”
I froze, my eyes locked on the mirror, panic staring back at me.
Thea.
Jesus. I needed to find somewhere else to live.
Leaning out of the bathroom, I stared at the door. If I was super quiet, maybe she’d think I was still asleep and go the hell away.
When I didn’t reply, she knocked again. Her voice was timid and sweet, not at all like the fearless girl I’d grown up with. I hated it.
“Ramsey? You hungry? I’m making breakfast? I was wondering if you wanted something?” Everything from my name to the fact that she was making breakfast was a question, as if maybe she was asking permission to cook in her own house.
My stomach was currently feasting on my backbone. Still, I said nothing.
She sighed. “Okay. Well, if you change your—” There were several seconds of silence.
I quirked my eyebrow at the door, trying to figure out why she’d abruptly stopped talking, and then cursed my inability to develop x-ray vision.
I held my breath, hoping to hear her footsteps as she walked away.
No. Such. Fucking. Luck.
The door swung open and she came walking inside with her hands stacked over her eyes. “Look, I know you’re awake. I heard you running earlier. I also heard you take at least three showers. Sorry, but the house isn’t that big. Neither is the hot water heater. Are you at least dressed so I can open my eyes?”
Brave. Unapologetic. And completely oblivious to boundaries. Now that was the Thea I knew.
“Get out,” I barked.
“Dressed? Not dressed? Help me out here?”
“Get. Out.”
She kept her eyes closed. “You gotta eat, Ramsey. You can’t stay locked up in this room forever.”
I wanted to tell her to get the hell out again. Honestly, it was on the tip of my tongue. But it never made it past my lips because my traitorous eyes stole a head-to-toe of her lithe body. She was barefoot, wearing jeans—tight ones that tapered at her ankle. They looked like mine in the sense that they had a rip in the knee. They didn’t look like mine in the sense that they hugged the curve of her hips and more than likely her ass too. A pink tank top stretched across her chest, and I swear on my life, fuck x-ray vision because I could see the pebble of her nipples beneath the fabric.
It wasn’t a ridiculous dress.
It wasn’t stupid fucking heels.
She wasn’t wearing a face full of clown makeup.
She was just Thea.
The nostalgia pumped through my veins like acid even as my cock stirred. Fuck, I should have jerked off again in the shower.
“I’m dressed,” I bit out, desperate for her to put her damn hands down and maybe use them to cover her tits instead.
Her long, brown lashes fluttered as she opened her eyes. Those fucking eyes had once owned me. As a huge smile lit her face, I felt the claim all over again.
“Oh, look, you chose one of the outfits I picked out for you.”
Of course I had. Of fucking course. As soon as I got her out of my room, I was going to take the outfit off and light it on fire.

CONFESSIONS OF A NAUGHTY NANNY by Piper Rayne is LIVE!

The Baileys are back with Phoenix and Griffin!

Today we are delighted to be sharing Piper Rayne’s 6th book in the stand-alone contemporary romance The Baileys series,
CONFESSIONS OF A NAUGHTY NANNY

When a famous music producer moves to Lake Starlight it can’t just be a coincidence. It’s the universe helping to move things along in the right direction so that Griffin Thorne can discover me.

I have to confess—I’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Confession #1: I may have overhead that he was in search of a nanny. What can I say? My brother has a big mouth.

Confession #2: It’s possible I helped along the assumption that I had nanny experience. Hey, babysitting my nieces and nephew counts, right?

Confession #3: There’s a good chance I oversold my qualifications. But my Grandma Dori backed me up, so it’s not completely my fault.

And it worked. He hired me. Only for me to find out that he left the business. 

I guess it’s on to Plan B.

When he accidentally overhears me singing, I expect nothing from him. Then he asks to work with me on a song for our town’s Founder’s Day Parade and it feels like a dream come true. Until…

Confession #4: I’ve fallen for him.

One of the fun things about this series has been the titles. Now this one brings a lot of thoughts to mind. It can come across to begin with as being a fun title. Salacious even. This is a Bailey book and if you’ve read them all we have all come to love the family and the uniqueness.

Phoenix has been front and centre since the first book with Austin and Holly. Back then she was a bratty senior who wanted nothing more than to get out of Lake Starlight and pursue her singing career in LA. We all know that the city of angels has the ability to chew and spit out hundreds of hopefuls every day.

Griffin became one of those side characters I needed to discover how he ticked. The how’s and whys of how he came to be Lake Starlight. His constant battle with the kitchen sink. I had to have answers.

A romance which took a long time to boil over. But when it did, oh boy did it create a mushroom cloud. As is always the way ups and downs happen apace and this couple doesn’t always deal with them in the correct manner. But then in real life who ever really does?

After six books this family have become very dear to me. I feel their pain; I feel their joy. Experiencing the continuing lives of past couples brings the reader much closer to them all. I cannot wait until Kingston gets his story. There are so many unsaid things hiding underneath the calm exterior of this firefighter.

Thank you again, ladies. I cannot wait for the next instalment.

Second chance romances have and always will be my favourites. There’s no need for getting to know one another, there’s always chemistry from the outset. Always chock full of enough fuel to start a five-alarm fire. I live for the crash and burn of a second chance. I thrive on the insurmountable odds being concurred. The past being burned down around the couple and the phoenix that will soar above, emerging from the ashes of its smouldering carcass.

Nothing could have prepared me for the impact of Rick and Candace. Avoidance and repression had been Rick’s drug of choice. He became a professor in the art of staying the heck away from his past.
That is until he’s forced back to where it all began. Knowing that he has no other choice than to face the only woman who had ever slain the savage beast thriving and devouring his soul.

Candace can handle herself, most assuredly knows her way around a gun, blame that on her upbringing if you will. She can kick butt and take names, she made one hell of an impact on me in the first few pages. She impressed me more than I can articulate. I love a woman who can be tough and then soft. She switches from one to the other like I flick through pages of a book. I could quite easily become her number one cheerleader.

Suspense, action and romance; what more could a gal ask for? As is typical for this author, the story hits the ground running. No build-up, just typical wham bang thank you, ma’am.

Questions, half-truths, and huge abandonment issues are only a few of the issues Candace and Rick have to rebuild from. Candace takes no prisoners, forcing Rick to answer for his past mistakes. He owns them all, open and vulnerable. Body as hard as granite with a heart as soft as cotton wool. She owns him lock, stock and barrel and all she has to do is open her heart and turn the key. Heat and passion surround them. It’s almost as if they’re bathing in the flames of intensity.

But hold the phone; could this book get any better? Oh baby, I’m only teasing. I cannot wait to get the sequel in my greedy little hands. But wait! Be prepared. This five-alarm inferno ends on a cliff hanger. Be prepared to want to throw your Kindle around, instead take a moment and breathe. To do this would mean one sadly upsetting thing. How would you read the sequel?

Thank you, Ms. Jones, for once again reminding me why I relish reading.

“Why are you here alone, Rick Savage?”

He fixes me in a deep blue stare, and I swear I’m drifting in a sea of this man’s making. “To meet you. I just didn’t know it yet.”

The rain explodes around us again, an eternal roughening of the windows that only Texas does with such force. Thunder erupts with it, lightning in the distance, and I don’t know who moves first. Him or me. Suddenly though we’re in the middle of the seat and his fingers are tangling all rough and wonderfully in my hair, his mouth lowering to mine. “I’m going to kiss you now unless you object,” he says.

“Kiss me already, Savage.”

“Rick. Call me Rick.” And then his lips collide with my lips, his tongue a deep stroke of pure heat that has me moaning with the rush of sensation that assaults my body in the best of ways.

My arms slide around his muscular back, body pressing against his body, the hard lines of this incredible man absorbing more than the softer part of me. That need to be touched explodes inside me, demanding satisfaction. He pulls back and stares down at me. “Do you want to get out of here? Together.”

I tell myself this is crazy, insane, wildly out of my character. “I don’t do things like this. Ever.”

He kisses me again and leaves me breathless. “Make me the first.”

It’s been quite a while since I took the time to sit and read a mystery romance, and this one had just the right amount of ingredients to keep me chomping at the bit until the well-written end.

Sunday and Bo, two sides of the same coin. Both doing the right thing for their own reasons.

The story of Sunday and her best friends was chock full of the things you’d find in any real friendship. Calling one another out on their BS, being just one of those things.

Bo, a man looking out for his mum. After all, what would any child do if they discovered something like that out? Well, I’d do exactly what he does and darn the consequences.

Intrigue, dishonesty, romance, kick-butt friends; what more could a reader want.

“Mr. Camden, they’re boarding your flight.” Bo looked up at the woman who’d helped him earlier.”Thank you.” He grabbed his carry-on and headed toward his gate. When he arrived, most of the area had already cleared out. He scanned his boarding pass and headed down the gangway.

“Welcome aboard,” a flight attendant greeted him.

“Thank you.”

When he saw who was sitting in two d, against the window where she would be locked in by him once he sat, he smiled. This flight was going to be interesting.

Sunday saw him and ducked as if that could possibly hide her. Finding entirely too much joy in her rather pathetic attempt, he stowed his carry-on and took his seat. “Fancy seeing you here.”

“What the hell? I thought you were headed to New York.”

“Yeah, and I thought that my dad was going to New York so I invited you along, guess you were laughing at me the entire time.”

“No. After you left, I went to book my flight for New York, but before I did, I wanted to find out what time your dad arrived so I checked the executive airport and discovered that he was going to the Caymans instead.”

“You could have called me and let me know.”

“How? I only know you as the crazy stalker who followed me home. I don’t exactly have your cell number.” Sunday looked smug.

“Really? You can find my dad’s flight times, don’t tell me that you couldn’t have found my number.” Bo smiled wider. Mental hash mark, one to him. “By the way, do you even know where you’re going once you get on the island?”

Sunday raised one brow in challenge. “If I can find a flight plan, then I can find a reservation.”

“Yet not a cell phone number,” Bo mumbled.

“It wasn’t intentional. Besides, why are you bitching? Obviously, you lied about New York because you’re on this flight too. And to answer your other question, I’m going to the Ritz.”

“I’m only on this flight because I saw you coming through TSA and texted my mom to let her know that you would be out of town with me in New York. She’s who told me you were going to the Caymans.”

“Well, aren’t you a regular Sherlock Holmes.”

“Listen, I know that we got off on the wrong foot, let’s start over.” Bo held out one hand. “Truce?”

Sunday stared at it and debated. “Sure, now because you want it? I tried this yesterday.”

“You did, and I acted like an ass. Truce or not?”

“Fine, truce.” Sunday shook on it.

“So, why PI work?” Bo turned in his seat so that he could get a better view of Sunday.

“It wasn’t originally what I wanted, but I met the other three my third year of college and we became best friends. Olivia and Adeline were studying criminal justice, Melanie was working on a degree in psychology, and I was studying cyber forensics.”

“Does Melanie analyze the clients, watch for body language and stuff like that?” Bo asked, totally enthralled.

“Sort of, Mel studies their patterns and habits. You know, like a profiler.”

“That’s kind of cool. Tell me about cyber forensics. What is that like?”

“Have you ever watched a movie where they confiscate someone’s computer?”

“Of course.”

“It is a cyber forensics team that goes through the hard drive and can recover, rebuild, or decipher everything that device has done.”

“And that’s something you like to do?” Bo questioned.

“It is. I can get lost behind a computer.”

“I like that, I used to like my job as well.” Bo leaned back.

He couldn’t get over how relaxed he felt with her, the two of them just talking. All it took was calling a truce then in a blink of an eye they went from enemies to . . . what . . . what were they?

“You don’t like your job anymore?” Sunday appeared genuinely concerned.

“When you spend all your time watching what your own father is doing and making sure that he isn’t trying to screw the company or your mother over, it sort of takes the fun out of it.”

Sunday placed one hand on top of his. “I hate this for you. You should be able to trust your parents more than anyone else.”

“Oh, I trust my mom. She’d do anything for me.”

Bo and Sunday fell quiet as the flight attendant came to a stop next to them. Her smile was warm as she glanced between them before asking, “Would you folks like a mimosa?”

“Sure, thank you.” Sunday accepted her drink first, and then Bo took his from the attendant.

“A toast?”

Sunday smiled and lifted her glass. “Here’s to getting lucky in the Caymans.”

“Okay, I guess that I can drink to that.” Bo chuckled.

“Oh, I didn’t mean like lucky as in lucky, lucky. I meant as in getting lucky and getting exactly what we need for your mother.”

“Okay, sure. I’m good either way.” Bo clinked his glass to Sunday’s.

“Oh, you shush.”

RELEASE BOOST ~ in the LIGHT of day by KA Graham

It’s release boost day for KA Graham’s psychological dark romance, IN THE LIGHT OF DAY. And we’re also delighted to be sharing Emma-Louise’s 5-star review, a book she chose for one of her best 2019 reads!

There’s darkness in all of us.

Micah
I’m a nobody. An outcast. A shadow. I never aligned with the jocks and their fake barbie girlfriends, not that I wanted to. Being invisible worked for me until he showed up.

He showed me a path I never intended to walk, and I slid into his life easily. Too easily.  Now that the devil has embraced me, I crave the heat of his flames.

Quinn
She doesn’t think I see her. She’s wrong. She’s all I see. My dark angel. We’re more alike than she could ever imagine. Soon I will make her mine.

I was always good at playing the part of the jock that everyone worships. In reality, I’m the devil with no remorse. It’s time to free my soul and rid myself of the rodents.

Holy bouncing balls! What in the world kind of crazy did I just read? For the sheer genius of creativity, I can’t not reward this one five stars.

Any of us have known or been the odd one out. The one person that is victimised for being different. Micah is that person. She stands out and rises above the queen bees of the town. This, of course, painted a large target on her butt. Micah deals with real-world issues. Her coping mechanisms are ones that anyone with these afflictions would understand.

Quinn is an oddball, a true wolf in sheep’s clothing. Some of his actions are ones that I cannot condone and often felt like I could condemn him for them; however, I will state this. Those of us who live by normal laws wouldn’t do it but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t want to in the deepest recesses of our mind.

Together Micah and Quinn make sense; they balance each other out. Strange as it may seem they often complement one another.

Through some of the weirdest events I’ve ever read, we go through a journey almost reminiscent of a Quentin Tarantino movie, and this isn’t a bad thing, not at all. It left me scratching my head and laughing maniacally. Curious? I double dare you to give this one a shot. Tag, you’re it!!!

New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery returns with the third book in her Odds-Are-Good series! Fall in love with her superhot Alaskan men…


Three nights. Two of us. One bed. Zero chance at love.

Boston businesswoman, Faye Findley, has devoted the last decade of her life to work, leaving no time for romance. Tired of being a 30-year-old virgin, Faye answers an ad in The Odds Are Good magazine, hoping to turn over her v-card to a sexy Alaskan she’ll never see again. 

Successful distillery owner, Trevor Starling, was left betrayed and broken-hearted when his brother and fiancée had sex the night before Trevor’s wedding. Anticipating a lonely New Year’s celebration, he places an ad in The Odds Are Good for a no-strings-attached weekend of hot sex. 

Though mistaken identity threatens to derail everything, the chemistry between Faye and Trevor turns out to be stronger than either could have imagined. And what started out as a one-and-done mission becomes much more complicated.

Another personal ad and another woman from the lower forty-eight wonders up to Alaska for reasons I shan’t be telling, where is the fun there?

Fate became my favourite of the leading ladies in this series by far. Independent, stubborn and strong, the world was on her shoulders and she did it all in the name of family. Obligation will only get you so far and then a woman has to let her hair down eventually, right? And let her hair down she did.

Trevor was the quintessential workaholic I expected him to be. In love with nothing other than work, and of course, a certain person soon put pay to that.

In places, this felt a lot like an insta-love romance. Not typically my thing but this book enraptured me and I couldn’t put it down. Steamy, romantic and full of enticement. A great addition to a fantastic series, well done Ms. Regnery and thank you!

Single in Sitka #1

A single Dad. A personal ad. What could possibly go wrong?

When Seattle journalist, Amanda McKendrick, pitches a new story about the increase of bear attacks in
Sitka, her newspaper sends her north for two weeks. While there, she answers the personal ad of single dad, Luke Kingston, looking for a little no-strings-attached fun to pass the time.

But the sweet, widowed father of three—who just happens to be a smokin’ hot state trooper—turns
out to be a lot more than Amanda bargained for. As the days go by, she wonders if it’ll be possible to
return to Seattle without leaving her heart behind.

Nome-o Seeks Juliet #2

When a lonely vet(eran) and an ambitious vet(erinarian) work together to win the Qimmiq 200, sparks will fly…

Montana-born veterinary student, Juliet Sanderson, is disappointed when her project on the treatment and care of sled dogs falls through due to the illness of a local musher. In an effort to salvage her study and graduate, she answers the personal ad of Alaskan musher, Cody Garrison, who is desperately seeking a teammate for an upcoming co-ed race, The Qimmiq 200.

Cody Garrison, a retired U.S. Marine, doesn’t tell Juliet that he was left permanently disabled during his time in active service, fearing that she wouldn’t agree to race with him if she knew. But once she arrives in Alaska, discovering the truth about Cody’s past will be inevitable. Will the partnership they’ve agreed to, and the off-the-charts chemistry between them, be enough to see them through the rigors of training and secure them the win of their lives?
