SYNOPSIS

 

“The velvet tongue”

That’s what they hear

“The silent fixer”

That’s what they whisper

“Turo DeMarco can slice you with that smile”

It’s been known to happen

But the one truth they don’t know could get me killed. 

It’s already gotten me thrown into the fire.

 

I’m the rising dark star of Chicago’s criminal underworld, but I’ve been warned, and I have one chance to make things right, flying halfway around the world to do it.

Then one hot AF heiress gets in my way with an unforgettable kiss and a blast of gunfire, hurling us both into the eye of a Mediterranean hurricane, tangling us in the ultimate high stake game

Our impulsive escape to a Greek island exposes cruel lies, sour truths, explosive passion…and bares our bitter souls

 

I was always told that actions speak louder than words, 

and Adriana proved it to me.

Yet there’s one thing that speaks even louder—

Blood

Blood in my heart, blood on my hands.

Blood never lies, never plays games.

Neither do I.

 

 

 

EXCERPT

 

Adriana flinched at the shrill scream of a motorcycle on the bend of the narrow waterfront road. A hand went to her heaving chest. She turned away from the road, and her troubled gaze snagged on mine. Her eyes widened, and my pulse gained speed.

Remember me, baby?

Her lips parted, she shook her head at me. A slight movement, but I caught it. Was she calling Game Over or was she warning me off? Maybe she hadn’t been some random girl bumping into me, flirting with me? Did the Alibertis know I was shadowing them and had sicced Adriana on me as a distraction?

Only one way to find out.

I strode toward her. Toward them. The traffic on the road behind her got thicker. A tourist bus, droning motor scooters with helmet-less teens, motorcycles with couples, cars.

Those blue gray eyes got huge. “Turo?” Adriana said, her voice low, stiff.

“Leaving so soon?” I asked.

Her long elegant neck straightened. A swan preparing to take flight.

Not so fast, lovely.

“Aren’t you going to introduce me to your boyfriend?” I asked.

Alessio prowled over, Luca tossed his cigarette, tracking to the other side of Adriana. Alessio’s dark eyes gleamed as he gave me a curt shake of his head. That Italian “Who the fuck are you, what the fuck is this?”

“Turo DeMarco.” I stretched out my hand to Alessio.

Alessio stared at my hand, an eyebrow raised. His full lips twisted into a smirk. Luca’s face was a mask.

“Adriana! Adrianaaaa!” shouted photographers from across the street. Her gaze darted to them but she immediately turned her back on them, pressing next to Alessio, her body bunching up. She was uncomfortable.

“Adriana!” the paps shouted. Her jaw set, her face tightened. Was she famous?

“Ignore them, Adri,” muttered Alessio, a hand at her back.

Just over her shoulder, a few yards beyond us on the main road, a mud splashed motorcycle with two helmeted figures in long sleeved jackets slowed down at the curve approaching the club’s entrance, weaving in front of the line of cars parked at the end of the walkway. They moved slowly, deftly, swiftly. They weren’t paparazzi. They weren’t club-goers. Not to this club.

Needles pricked up the back of my neck.

The rider in the back raised his arm, a semi-automatic in his grip.

I lunged at Adriana.

Crack. Crack.

Twisting her into me, I rolled onto the ground with her in my arms. I covered her, our bodies pressed together into the pavement. She clung to me.

Blat tat clip clip crack.

A high pitched scream ripped the air above us. Muffled moans. A tidal wave of shouts.

I pushed up, digging my fingers in her hair, cradling the side of her pale face. Anguish, terror. “Are you all right?” my voice as tense as my grip on her. “Adriana? Are you okay?”

“Yes! Yes—” She couldn’t catch her breath, her eyes opened widened even more, flitting to the side of my face. A hand reached out, touching the side of my stinging face. Blood stained her shaking fingers.

I touched the side of my face and found torn wet skin. Must have been from falling to the sidewalk.

Alessio, Luca over us. A flurry of Greek, Italian. I pulled her up and held onto her. Her arms were cold, so cold. Alessio, the bodyguard, an ashen Gennaro hanging behind him. Luca shouting, gesturing. My head reeled, was I swaying on my feet? I grabbed Alessio by the shirt.

“That motorcycle—” I gulped in air. “Did you see that motorcycle?”

Si. I saw.” His gaze darted to the side of my face, and he winced. Alessio grabbed Adriana whose eyes stayed on me, not wanting to let go. Alessio took her and brushed past me, and I staggered.

“Turo! ” shouted Adriana, looking over Alessio’s shoulder, eyes wild. She fisted Alessio’s shirt. “Don’t leave him here! Don’t!”

A thick arm wrapped around me like a stiff belt, a hand at my chest, holding me up. Luca steered me toward a black Porsche Cayenne manned by a security guard who held the back door open. Alessio and Adriana climbed inside.

“Come.” Luca picked up his pace, leading me toward the car. “We have to get out of here. Now.”

I shoved him off me. “What are you talking about?”

He grabbed my arm again. “You are coming with us.”

MEET CAT

Cat Porter was born and raised in New York City, but also spent a few years in Europe, Texas and the suburbs along the way. As an introverted, only child, she had very big, but very secret dreams for herself.

She has two children’s books traditionally published under her maiden name. She now lives in Greece with her husband and three children, and freaks out regularly and still daydreams way too much. She is addicted to old movies, the History Channel, her iPad, her husband’s homemade red wine, really dark chocolate, and her Nespresso coffee machine.

BANE by L.J. Shen is on blog tour with KFF!

SBPR-BT-BANNER-2

BANE, the highly-anticipated standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series
by L.J. Shen is LIVE!

Bane-Cover-Facebook

 

Bane

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

 

EXCERPT

 

Bane

Then.

A liar.

A con.

A godless thief.

My reputation was a big wave that I rode, one that swallowed everyone around me, drowning every attempt to fuck with what’s mine.

I’d been known as a stoner, but power was my real drug of choice. Money meant nothing. It was tangible, and therefore easy to lose. See, to me, people were a game. One I’d always known how to win.

Move the rooks around.

Change the queen when necessary.

Guard the king at all fucking times.

I was never distracted, never deterred, and never jealous.

So, imagine my surprise when I found myself being all three at once.

It was a siren with coal black hair who robbed me of riding the biggest wave I’d seen that summer. Of my precious attention. Of my goddamn breath.

She glided from the ocean to the beach like nightfall.

I crouched down, straddling my surfboard, gawking.

Edie and Beck stopped beside me, floating on their boards in my periphery.

“This one’s taken by Emery Wallace,” Edie had warned. Thief.

“This one’s the hottest masterpiece in town.” Beck had chuckled. Con.

“More importantly, she only dates rich bastards.” Liar.

I had all the ingredients to pull her in.

Her body was a patch of fresh snow. White, fair, like the sun shone through her, never quite soaking in. Her skin defied nature, her ass defied my sanity, but it was the words on her back that made my logic rebel.

It wasn’t her curves or the way she swayed her hips like a dangling, poisonous apple that warranted my reaction to her.

It was that tattoo I had noticed when she swam close to me earlier, the words trickling down the nape of her neck and back in a straight arrow.

My Whole Life Has Been Pledged to This Meeting with You

Pushkin.

I only knew one person who went gaga over the Russian poet, and, like the famous Alexander, he was currently six feet under.

My friends began to paddle back to shore. I couldn’t move. It felt like my balls were ten tons heavy. I didn’t believe in love at first sight. Lust, maybe, but even that wasn’t the word I was looking for. No. This girl fucking intrigued me.

“What’s her name?” I snatched Beck’s ankle, yanking him back to me. Edie stopped pedaling and looked back, her gaze ping-ponging between us.

“Doesn’t matter, bro.”

“What’s. Her. Name?” I repeated through a locked jaw.

“Dude, she’s, like, way young.”

“I will not repeat myself a third time.”

Beck’s throat bobbed with a swallow. He knew damn well that I didn’t mess around. If she was legal—it was on.

“Jesse Carter.”

Jesse Carter was going to be mine before she even knew me.

Before I even knew her.

Before her life turned upside down and her fate rewrote itself with her blood.

So here was the truth that even my lying ass wouldn’t admit later on in our story—I wanted her before.

Before she became business.

Before the truth caged her in.

Before the secrets gushed out.

I never did get to surf that day.

My surfboard broke.

Should have known it was an omen.

My heart was going to be next in line.

And for a small chick, she did one hell of a fucking job obliterating it.

Right, why I had such difficulty reviewing Shen’s standalone in the Sinners of Saint series is quite simple. A plot that’s faster than the speed of lightning and complex to boot not only brought out all the feelings, but once again left me in awe of her writing. However, not letting on for the future reader was my main concern because doing so would certainly be a crime. Therefore, I’m going to try to be brief which, if you’ve read any of my reviews, isn’t like me at all! No holds barred; the author has delved into trigger issues. Upsetting scenes for the most seasoned of bibliophiles are reduced with a dry wit second to none, soothing those who could be affected. That being said, after getting to know the ins and outs of the protagonists’ problems convinced me never to judge anyone’s behaviour until all the facts are presented. 

“We don’t remember every single day of our lives.” “And that’s a good thing, Jesse.” 

Happenings in the life of Roman Protsenko, aka Bane and an incident in Jesse Carter’s story are narrated at a provoking pace, resulting in me doing an all-nighter. Did I like it? Hmm…I paid for my sleep deficit the next morning with an awful book hangover. I felt that they were too young to be exposed to such a harsh start. One thing I really liked regardless of all the sadness was the humour both protagonists had. 

“Men in Black ain’t a verb.”
“Who are you, the grammar police? If so, you’d probably get jail time for saying ain’t.”
 

Bane managed to put himself at the top of my anti-hero-to-date list! Smug, no doubt about it! A reputation for getting away with blue murder, he has no wish to live said beliefs down and much less make excuses for himself. Dripping sarcasm, he’s a well-known manwhore. Yet I still fell head over heels for him. Why? Because regardless of what he thinks he is, underneath those layers of intrigue and lies, he’s a real softy with a huge heart. Question is, will his deceiving ways catch up on him?

‘Guilty. I felt guilty. And I never felt guilty in my life.’ 

My heart went out for Jesse. I felt her pain, understood how she felt, and would’ve gladly jumped into her story and given the people who made this merciful lass suffer a good-Kindle-hiding! Folk too close to home that couldn’t care less for her wellbeing made me so damn angry; others didn’t even deserve the time of day because if it weren’t their cruel actions, they wouldn’t have destroyed such an beautiful soul. Nonetheless, Jess is a fighter. How she comes back from a deep dark hole of depression makes for some really emotional reading…all I can say is thank goodness she had Bane to show her she was capable of facing her demons.

“You don’t need a prince, princess. You need a sword.” 

Ooh. My. Word! The story reaches a crescendo of such intensity and didn’t just leave me on tenterhooks, nooo…it blinkin’ well gnawed at my very being! I couldn’t sit still, was nervous as hell and couldn’t turn the pages quick enough. The prize; however, is an epilogue bringing the reader much more than they could ever have wished for. All this, and the excellent secondary character development, and a compassionate tale told from two perspectives in past tense are not only details worthy of mentioning, but made Bane an epic read. Bravo Shen!

REVIEW BLITZ ~ IRON PRINCESS by MEGHAN MARCH

 

He’s a mystery. An enigma.

His very identity is a secret buried beneath layers of deception.

He’s also an addiction I can’t shake. An attraction I can’t fight.

And then I found out exactly who he is—a man more dangerous than the devil himself.

Now I need him in order to save everything that matters to me.

I have to pull back. Protect myself from the danger that haunts his every step.

Which would be easy . . . if I could stop myself from falling in love with him.

4.5 Stars ~ Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse

When a ginormous cliffy presents itself at the end of a read, there’s nothing like waiting for the next book to build up the tension, now is there? Savage Prince flowed at such velocity, to say I was on kept tenterhooks throughout would be an understatement. However, Ms March assured her readers that they’d get Iron Princess fairly soon and I can’t thank her enough. Just as well seeing that my eagerness to find out what his next move would be literally had me crying out for more! Not surprisingly, the man with no name left many unanswered questions in his wake. Not only did I want to see if said questions would be clarified, but was also itching to find out how Temperance would react to…ahem, some shocking news!

“…Sometimes the universe has different plans than you do, and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.” 

Temperance Ransom hasn’t had anything given to her on a silver plate. She’s earned her employer’s trust through hard work and achieved what she has with an iron-will. She’s certainly trustworthy but who can she trust, you may ask! There are so many hurdles in her story that I actually wanted her to slow down a tad. I felt as if she was getting in over her head and this worried me no end. Her being so adamant; so stubborn and sure of herself, didn’t help me organise my thoughts regarding the situation she was in. She comes across as a woman of the world which isn’t exactly true and despite learning the hard way, holding her own with the leading man made me feel slightly better. I really liked Temperance in Savage Prince; in this read she bowled me over with her sassiness. Her past insecurities and present vulnerabilities are highlighted in a complex plot that thickens by the minute. Yet will her faith in him be enough to save her from what could be a finale seeped in dangerous manipulations? Obviously, discovering who’s behind such schemes means being patient.

“You’re one of a kind, Temperance. Truly.” 

The leading man oozes intrigue! Sharp, professional and ohh so drop-dead gorgeous, provoking him is like setting a fire alight. Regardless of his cool-as-ice facade, I damned well connected to him at the drop of a hat. His mannerisms, his lack of savoir faire were perfectly perfect for his character. Saying that, he knows how to adapt regardless of him feeling uncomfortable. He’s a chameleon, a man of his own word; deadly and dreadfully protective of the lady who confuses the pants off him….no pun intended, of course! And give me a man donning a suit and tie like a second skin is a sure way to get me swooning. Good taste he has in all aspects of his personal life; nonetheless, only one woman has ever brought him to his knees. Guess who!!!

‘I’ve never known a man who wears a pocket square before, and I had no idea it would be so sexy.’ 

I said this in the previous review and I’ll say it again. Theirs is an addictive erotic relationship. March is an expert at titillating the reader to the point where one’s either grabbing for a fan or putting the aircon on full blast! The bedroom scenes for want of a better expression are pure dynamite. The two of them ignite the pages, leaving you rather flustered if I say so myself!

“You don’t have any problem telling me what you do want. The same goes for what you don’t want. Got it?” 

March took me to two places. Firstly, the darker level I’m not overly fond of actually worked well for me. And the protagonists’ journey soaked in conspiracy I found enthralling. Action-packed and fast-flowing, there’s no doubt in my mind the author has brought out the big guns and that’s not speaking metaphorically, either. Beyond expressive, her detailed account kept me stuck to every page, and the banter…wow! Moments of quirky humorous comebacks combined with angst-ridden discussion were what made this follow-up unputdownable. I would be lying if I said there weren’t a couple of scenes where I wanted to give my Kindle a good bashing, too. I truly wanted to give this book five stars, but I think March set herself a difficult task. Beating the first story with all its cleverly construed ruses was for me nigh on impossible. Yet this doesn’t mean I can’t wait for the next instalment. Get ready! Another cliffy of huge proportions will have you anxiously awaiting Rogue Royalty. Bravo March!

 

Who knew things could get even darker and dirtier in New Orleans? New York Times bestselling author Meghan March introduces the Savage Prince of the city, the man you never want to meet.

I do what I want and who I want. I don’t follow anyone’s rules—even my own.
I knew I shouldn’t touch her, but it didn’t stop me.
Didn’t stop me the second time either. Only made me want a third.
My lifestyle suits the savage I am, and she doesn’t.
But Temperance Ransom is my newest addiction, and I’m nowhere near ready to quit her yet.
I’ll have her my way, even if it means dragging her into the darkness.
Hopefully it doesn’t kill us both.

Savage Prince is book one of the Savage Trilogy, set in the same world as Ruthless King, however you do not need to read the Mount Trilogy to devour this scandalously hot new story.

But I’ll fight for it.

Exclusive Excerpt (First paragraph, first chapter)

She presses a tea towel to her wound to try to stem the blood, but it is gushing, insistent. The harder she presses the more it pushes back. She cannot look at her sister, at her clammy, staring eyes. A siren grinds into her mind. Louder. Louder. Her eyes are transfixed by repetitive flashing lights. The doorbell rings and she feels as if she is moving through mercury as she steps to answer it. To open the door with a trembling hand – a hand that smells like a butcher’s shop. Three police officers stand in front of her: two men, one woman.

Reviewed by Anna Green on behalf of KFF

This is the author’s second published book. I have read her debut novel Obsession and although this book has a very different feel to it both are the same, you just can’t put it down.

Non-identical twins Zara and Miranda have a very close relationship as expected with twins. Miranda is the smarter one and aced her way through school and is now working as an accountant. Zara is the more sociable and likeable one and couldn’t care less about academics but more inclined to art. Zara moved in with Miranda when she decided to change her life’s direction and went to art school. Miranda is the stronger one and Zara is more vulnerable, sensitive and has psychological issues. Everything changed when Zara met Sebastian, the man who will affect their lives forever.

This dark read grips you right from the start. Although this author’s writing style is a bit different than the others I’ve read, her storyline is always riveting. She has a knack for creating main characters that you love to hate, heroines that are tenacious and resilient, antagonists you would love to get your hands on and do some serious harm. Every chapter is like peeling an onion, each layer reveals the character’s vulnerability, darkness and motives. During the courtroom drama we get to meet Theo, another character in this tragic tale. Is he a good guy or a bad guy?

Written in alternating points of view of the three main characters switching from past to present, their inner thoughts draw you in and make you turn the page, dying to find out what happens next. I expected/wanted this book to be darker though and I must say that the epilogue was a bit anti-climactic for me. I wanted a wicked and twisted ending but maybe that’s just me. A great read for those who want something different from the usual romance novels.

SYNOPSIS

 

I try to forget her.

It’s impossible.

Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.

First love, first kiss, first…

Not all our firsts.

 

We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.

I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering.

Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.

 

Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.

Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.

She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.

 

I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains.

She’s mine.

Pam Godwin Books GrayScale

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.

Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
