SWEET VENGEANCE by Danielle Norman is LIVE!

Today we are thrilled to be sharing Danielle Norman’s all-new contemporary romance, SWEET VENGEANCE


The handoff of an orchid colored card was all it took to call the Iron Ladies, a whisper network of women.

They specialized in bringing abusive men to their knees.

Men who abused women and abused power, men like the Camden’s.

Sunday Prescott was a tech goddess, cyber espionage was her specialty.

During her latest assignment, she uncovered more than she ever hoped for: Bo Camden.

He was just like his father, right?

But the butterflies in her stomach told her something different. And the touch of his lips left her breathless.

She was torn between sleeping with the enemy or getting vengeance…Sweet Vengeance.

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.

EXCERPT

All rights reserved.

“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!!!

REVIEW ~ FAIRBANKS AFFAIR by Katy Regnery

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!

When last we visited Abby and Lex they were so confused about what they were, even I couldn’t untangle the mess.

Abby as a character is highly relatable. She has a story you can get behind. You’ll cheer with her and cry with her. She’s one of those memorable people you can’t not remember.

Lex and his brother are complicated. Mere pawns on a chessboard, in a game that started decades before they were even born. So many questions. So little time to figure it all out. Why oh why can this author not just go easy on me. She is one hundred per cent menace and I can’t and won’t complain about that. There is always room to grow, time to expand into someone bigger, some better, become stronger than anyone truly believes or sees possible.

I’m keeping this short. Not because the book was bad but so I can torment and torture; just like Ms. Malone does. Fabulous as ever. Well done.

Meet Nana

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble bestseller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.

And maybe lived under your bed…

His shadow dissolving without a trace.
I wondered why that was.

Welcome to Midnight Mayhem. Where anything is possible at the strike of midnight.

Darkness is where this author lurks. Shadows are her constant companions. Pick any book and you’ll find the true definition of depravity and evil. The lines are always blurred and heroes aren’t always good of heart.

Kingston fascinated me almost as much as Dove did. Love and hate mean the same thing for Kingston. He has no lines, nothing he will not do. Scary? You bet your sweet butt he is. A contradiction at the top tier level. I couldn’t work him out. Even when I knew what was going on.

Based in the same world as other series, but so vastly different.

Dove is kept in the dark. A victim before she even realised it. Her lot was set from an early age. Her path littered with bad intentions and unexploded landmines.

Small flashbacks give us insight into the early years. It would have been so easy for the writer to give us tidbits at these points. But oh no. As is often the case, it’s all sleight of hand.

Hard. Rough. Sharp and bloody. Midnight Mayhem has so much more to offer the reader. Suspend judgement. Keep a closed mind. Welcome to your fate.

I have to say I was really looking forward to reading this book. Knowing the premise of the story made it even more anticipatory for me.

The trials and tribulations that happen to Josie are harder than some people can bear. I have read books before where the same kind of challenge occurs. I can honestly say, hand on heart I have never read a book where it seems so realistic and true.

Josie has to adapt to a lot of changes, hurdles, and barriers. The way she goes about it touched me in a way I still find hard to put into words.

Journalists are in a different league, Oliver especially comes across as determined. When it comes to his relationship with Josie, Oliver is determined. Nothing is rushed. How could it be? These things take time and huge amounts of care and consideration.

This author is a genius at spinning story-driven books, she knows when to be soft and when to be hard. Never treading gently for safety’s sake. I found myself drowning in the words. Desperate to discover what would come next. How could this be resolved? How could they overcome that?

I have a huge amount of respect for this author. She deserves huge amounts of applause. Well done and congratulations.

Meet Juliet

Life changed dramatically for award-winning, bestselling author Juliet Braddock on January 13, 2017.

After suffering with blurry vision, Juliet found herself in the emergency room, surrounded by a team of neurologists. The diagnosis was Pseudotumor Cerebri, a rare disease that produces excess spinal fluid on the brain. She’d lost sight when the pressure from the fluid damaged her optic nerves.

Two spinal taps and three surgeries—including a shunt to drain the fluids from her brain—did not restore her sight. All along, she wondered and worried if she’d ever write again.

“One of the saddest days of my life was having to pull BLEMISHED from Amazon because I couldn’t make the publication date,” Juliet said. “I remember speaking to the rep, and she was so kind when I told her I was about to have brain surgery. But my heart was falling out of my chest.”

A lifelong writer, Juliet began spinning stories as soon as she learned to put pencil to paper. She refused to give up on her greatest passion, and she knew she had to find a way to finish BLEMISHED and continue her career.

With some help from her neuro-ophthalmologist, Juliet discovered vision rehabilitation therapy and software that magnified her computer screen. “I was amazed by the technology available for people who are blind or have low vision. And with the computer software, I was able to finish the book.”

Since her brain surgery, Juliet has published BLEMISHED and SMITTEN, which won the National Indie Book Award for Erotica. All along, though, she plotted through another story inside her head.

“When I started vision rehab, I took the bull by the horns. I learned to use a cane. I kept my mind open to devices and gadgets that could help me manage my vision loss. I even made a career change,” Juliet said. “It was so important to me to return to living a normal life again.”

As the story of BLINDSIDED began to unfold, Juliet had one goal. “I wanted to show people who might have lost sight that there is hope and help out there.”

In BLINDSIDED, vision loss disrupts reporter Josie Rossi’s world, but she’s determined to recover with assistance from the most unexpected places—and from former lover and rival journalist Oliver Billington. As their lives converge again through tragedy, Josie and Oliver must ultimately decide if trust can salvage the remnants of their love. 

“You don’t realize how much you depend on your eyes—from my job to walking down steps to going to the theater and museums. Suddenly, everything I did in my old life seemed like it depended on my sight.”

BLINDSIDED is dedicated to Juliet’s vision rehabilitation therapist, whom the author credits with giving her the courage to conquer this curve in the road.

Juliet also hopes to raise awareness of rare diseases that cause vision loss. “There are very few scientific facts on Pseudotumor, and I was asymptomatic.” By the time of her diagnosis, the damage to her optic nerves was irreversible, and Juliet is now legally blind. “But people need to know that this disease doesn’t have to be a death sentence. You can work a full-time job. You can write that book you’ve been plotting in your head.”

Since her last surgery, she’s travelled to visit friends both in the US and abroad, including a trip to Scotland. She’s also managed to keep up with her other hobbies of theatre and art with special binoculars that she wears to catch the latest Broadway musicals and art exhibits in New York City.

Now, she considers every day a celebration. “I took life for granted when I was fully sighted,” Juliet said. “My friends, my career—and my writing. I’ve learned how to appreciate the world on a new level since my vision loss and brain surgery.”

In her spare time, Juliet loves to travel, eighties music, wine, food, theatre and all things French. When she’s not exploring the big cities of the world—most notably Paris—she lives and writes in Brooklyn and is the proud cat mom to a very spoiled Russian Blue rescue. She’s also a lifelong Duran Duran fan.
