BLURB

Hudson Pierce-

You act so high and mighty, you and your perfect pregnant wife Alayna. With your perfect child and your perfect home.

You weren't always perfect. Your past is filled with misdeeds.

Does your wife know all your secrets?

Would she stand behind you if she did?

You think because she’s on bedrest you can protect her? How sweet.

Sleep tight, you two.

-An Old Friend.





Amazing! I was so excited to delve back into the world of Hudson and Alayna Pierce to see what everyone is up to! To prepare, I even listened through all the audibles this spring, lol. This book did not disappoint and I felt reconnected with all these characters I love so much. I really enjoyed the mystery/suspense factor as well! Someone is out to get them! I can’t wait until my friends can read this book, too!

Fixed Forever is like a family reunion. It has familiar faces, names, and people. It has drama. It has happy moments, sad moments, and Tracey in your face moments. Totally a family reunion of sorts!

It felt like being home, at least. Hudson and Laynie have always had a special place in my heart. They are their own world. So when someone(s) from their past are on a path to destroy their world, I needed to be front and center. Between my calming speeches for Alayna and my own rage-filled need to beat someone, I found myself falling victim to the same ploys as our dynamic duo. And I wouldn't have it any other way!

Fixed Forever is the start of something...
And Hudson Pierce intends to finish it!
(Even with my swooning on the sidelines)
But you know what they say...the road to Hell is paved with good intentions!

Good luck Hudson and may the odds be ever in your favor! (Lol.😉) Seriously, this is Hudson Pierce when aren't the odds in his favor!?!

All of Me The smokiness of Hudson’s favorite scotch meets Alayna’s signature tequila in the mezcal base of this drink to celebrate our favorite couple. Cherry juice reminds them of the blossoms they married under, while the tea is a comforting ingredient from mornings around the family table, representing just how far they’ve come from that first drink in the Sky Launch. 1 ½ mezcal ½ oz marashchino cherry juice 3 oz hibiscus tea Combine the ingredients in a tall glass, then add ice. Garnish with a cherry, an orange slice, and enjoy a drink with the one who has all of you.

BLURB

I never wanted a wife. Until I met her.

All my life I've been a lone-wolf. My favorite things are fast cars and a glass of brandy after a long day.

Things were perfect. Until my father reminded me he controls my inheritance.

If I don't bring a wife to the next family vacation, he's cutting me off.

I hate having my hand forced...

But I've got a plan.

I asked my assistant to find me the most non-wife-material girl he can dig up.

Once I parade her in front of my father, he'll be begging me to divorce her.

I'll keep my inheritance without having to change my life for anyone.

It seemed so easy.

Then I met her.

She's everything I never knew I wanted.

And when she finds out I picked her because I thought she'd never fit into my world...

It'll break her heart.

This novel contains a hot alpha billionaire who NEEDS a wife. He won't rest until she's locked down with his ring on her finger. NO cheating, lots of kindle-melting actions, and always a happily ever after!


EXCERPT


“Hi,” I tell the receptionist. “I’m here for the intern program?”

The receptionist doesn’t answer at first. She’s too busy staring off at the far corner of the lobby. I follow her gaze, turning to see two men in deep conversation. One, the older one, looks vaguely familiar. The younger one looks angry, and a lot like the older man, and also… well. I can tell why the receptionist is distracted. Because damn, that man is built.

He has to be, what, 6’4”, 6’5”? And all lean muscle, too. Not body-builder huge, but the sort of guy who could unexpectedly lift you single-handedly and drag you in a fireman’s carry to the nearest bed. With those sharp biceps of his, the cut jawline and razor cheekbones over his perfect bow lips, I could imagine a thing or two to do in bed with him.

Just then, as though sensing my gaze—or maybe the receptionist’s—he turns. I catch a glimpse of dark, sharp eyes. The kind of eyes that could pin you in place with one glance, while he went to work spreading your legs open, bending you over a desk…

My cheeks go hot, and I whip around. Somewhere behind me, I catch a distant shout, and then a door slams. Only then does the receptionist tear her eyes away, back to me. She smiles once, apologetically.

“Just spying on the family drama,” she says with a laugh and a little flutter of a sigh that doesn’t convince me. Sure. Drama. That’s why you were eying Mr. Hunky over there like a fresh cut of steak. “That’s Mr. Quint and his son, Jasper,” she clarifies, in response to my blank stare.

Oh. My eyes widen. That’s why the older man looked familiar. Antoine Quint—I’ve seen his photo in about a thousand magazines, usually in those Magnate of the Year type features, but occasionally in the Rich Older Men (And Their Hot Wives) type categories too. With a father like that, and a mother like the bombshell I’ve seen pictured on Antoine’s arm at red carpet photo shoots, it’s no wonder his son—Jasper—is so distracting.

#NewRelease #Reviews TOXIC by HJ Bellus & Kathy Coopmans @HEAPRMore @AuthorKCoopmans @HJBellus


TOXIC by HJ Bellus & Kathy Coopmans is LIVE on ALL PLATFORMS!

PURCHASE TODAY!

AMAZON US | AMAZON INT. | iTUNES | KOBO | B&N


I’m toxic. She’s pure. I can’t stay away. 

I saved a life by taking another. It throttled me into a vortex of endless darkness with booze and sex as my only solace. 

Until her. 

Maria Richards brought light back into my life even through my drunken haze. For weeks, I treated her like trash. Felt guilty as hell the moment I left her bed and breakfast. 

Life has a funny way of bringing back your past sins. A second chance with Maria stumbles in my path. It’s time to right my wrongs and be the man I burn to be. 

I’ve never believed in redemption, and now it’s my only hope.




I've said it before and I will say it again. These authors kill it! This dynamic duo will have you on the edge of your seat and in some ways- sanity! I am a fan of each individually. And when they get together, I can't stop squealing.

Toxic is a story I was desperate to read. If you've read Full Contact, you know where I'm coming from. My favorite Diamond is a mess. As a fan from the Syndicate days, it's hard to see a man I have loved turn into this utter mess. It's hard to see him and not want to fix him. Unfortunately, Alex's demons are his own. Instead of fighting them, he is letting them win.

Enter Maria. At perhaps the absolute worst time in his life, Alex meets the sassy siren. It isn't meant to be because, let's face it, any self-respecting woman doesn't find falling down drunk attractive.

But this story doesn't end there (duh, it'd only be 5 pages...give or take)! No things have a way of happening when you least expect them.

With a pull that seems to be as deep as the marrow in their bones, Alex and Maria can't seem to step away from each other. The chemistry is scorching. The dilemma is stomach twisting. The need is soul deep. 

There's no way to avoid the Toxic if you have forever in your sights.

Sigh...swoony, ridiculously giddy sigh!

I am a huge Alex supporter. I was destroyed watching him fall apart. It hurt to know how badly his actions affected him. Knowing it was needed but still hurting, sums up Alex's entire existence...outside of the bottle. Seeing his story play out is a balm to an aching heart! Don't be fooled though, this is no fairytale!

I always think that a good collaboration is when the reader has no idea who has written what part which is the case with this book. 

Alex and Maria are two strong stubborn characters who butt heads from the moment they meet. After a brutal encounter Alex is drowning, coming to terms with his actions is pushing him to drink and women. Maria is like a boomerang he can't get rid of her or stop thinking about her.

I enjoyed this story and the characters, it's emotional and fun with lots of fun sexy times too.

#Tour #NewRelease THE DOWNSIDE OF LOVE by Meghan Quinn @InkSlingerPR @AuthorMegQuinn

       

This isn’t a story about a love triangle. There is no triangle involved. This isn’t a story about an accidental pregnancy. Although having a baby with her . . . I would. This isn’t a story about lies and deception, even though at times I’ve lied to myself. No, this is my story. A story about sacrifice. A story about a man who fell in love with the wrong girl. A story I wish I never had to tell. This is a story about the true meaning of the downside of love.  

AVAILABLE NOW

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU





"...the upside of falling is finding an everlasting love that will carry you through a lifetime of happiness." Unless of course you fall for a man who is always in the clouds. Giving a man his freedom is in my opinion, the downside."The downside of love is heartache and uncertainty.." 

Meghan Quinn leaves no uncertainty in the Upside and Downside of her definition. Apparently, Meghan and possibly the voices in her head (the characters), aren't on the same page or even book as my pathetically hopeful heart. Am I punishing the author? Probably! I sent her at least 30 messages- so yeah, I'd say I'm punishing her. 

What I need to say though is that this duet is worthy every year, fear, and heartache. Despite your wishes for this tale, it will give you all the highs, the lows, and the gut twisting guilt. The fear and pain of being in love and afraid of the alternative. 

The Downside of Love will make many of you happy, a few upset, but everyone goes home with a smile and maybe even a weird look. (You will understand that once you finish it!)

Tucked away at the base of the Rocky Mountains lived a little boy with one singular dream: leave this broken and battered home and become someone. Be somebody’s hero. That boy was me—Colby Brooks. Except I’m not that same little boy anymore. My dreams might still be the same, but my reality isn’t. I’m smarter. Stronger. A man. And I learned a long damn time ago, the only way to achieve my dreams was to avoid distractions—at any cost. Focus. Resolve. Determination. But all it took was one single night. One night and my entire life…changed. One night had me colliding head first with the biggest distraction of my life; Rory Oaks. Smart. Charming. Beautiful. Rory changed everything. Quickly, my one-track mind started to bend. Each kiss faded decade-long dreams. And with one single incident, I fly off course.   





Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Check out some of Laurelin's book boyfriends!

If Hudson is your ultimate book boyfriend, I bet you’ll also love…
Anyone who knows me knows I devour anything by Christine Reiss. She writes books that tickle my ID, men that embody my perfect book boyfriend. I wrote Hudson because he possessed qualities that I wanted to fantasize and fixate (pun intended) about. Adam from Marriage Games seems to be Hudson on an alternate timeline. A Hudson I couldn’t have imagined myself, but completely want to obsess over. Pick up this duet if you haven’t! It’s edgier than the Fixed series, but well worth it.

No one writes dirty talkers like Whit. Jake’s alpha indifference toward his heroine makes me shiver. A must read for Hudson lovers.

OMG BENNETT RYAN. Christina Lauren know how to balance a hot businessman with a strong woman like no other. Witty banter, comic situations, dirty, dirty sex – UNF. I’ve reread this so many times I’ve lost count.

I often call LJ Shen the Kindle Unlimited version of Laurelin Paige. That’s because I want to believe my guys are as manipulative and loveable as her hot-headed alphaholes. All of her heroes are men I wish I wrote. Definitely an author to check out if you haven’t.
Gideon from Crossfire by Sylvia Day Gideon is one of the original popular dominant alphas. One of the men who inspired Hudson and a staple for contemporary romance readers who love the billionaire genre. I’m sure it’s already on your bookshelf. I still felt I needed to mention him.

While Donovan’s story is somewhat edgier than Hudson’s, at the core, the two men are very similar – silent puppet masters who will do anything and everything for the women that they love. If you are a fan of the Fixed series and haven’t crossed over to the Dirty Universe yet, let me plug Dirty Filthy Rich Boys now. It’s free on all vendors!

#Tour #Review VEN by K. Webster & Ker Dukey @IndieSagePR @KristiWebster @KerDukeyauthor



Ven

by K. Webster & Ker Dukey 

Publication Date: June 29, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Dark, Mafia, Romance


Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited

The Vetrov name comes with expectation. My role in this world is simple: do as Father asks and live my life how he planned it. My future is already written: run the empire. Old Values. Old Rule. Old Money. Until her. Everything I do lacks purpose. Everything I do is empty. Women. Money. Power. It meant nothing. Until her. When the Volkov rose showed up at my home a disgraced package, hand-delivered by a Vasiliev prince, I began paving my own path. I vowed to make her bloom once more. She consumed me. Her. Her. Her. But you can’t love a rose and expect not to be damaged by her thorns. She cut me too deep. And I bled out. My soul fled. All that’s left is a cold, calculating monster. I am Veniamin. Volcanic. Victorious. Valiant. Vetrov. When you enter my world to play games, prepare to lose. In the end, I always find the thorn in my side, and I pluck it right out. 

Haven’t read book one? Catch up here! 

Vlad (The V Games, #1)
Available in Kindle Unlimited!






____________________________________



Before you start this one you need to read book one as it will give a better understanding of the characters and the story dynamics.

This is Veniamin and Diana's story and get ready because this is intense. In my opinion, the authors outdid themselves with this one, the action is amped up, the betrayals and double-dealing wow some I never saw coming.

It's a toss-up for me for favourite character between Ven and Diana I loved them both. Diana is a strong woman let down by every man in her life she's decided to make them all pay. She never takes the easy route and often her decisions backfire but her determination to keep going is to be admired. Ven is a ruthless alpha male, the oldest male in his family but his father is still the arch manipulator. I loved his fierceness both in business and in his pursuit of Diana.

A story with a little bit of everything that kept me turning the pages and unhappy when it was over. I can't wait for the next book.

Her other passions besides writing include reading and graphic design. K can always be found in front of her computer chasing her next idea and taking action.

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected. I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up. My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling. When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
