**Cover Reveal** Jared: Kings of Guardian (Book 5) by Kris Michaels



Book: Jared: Kings of Guardian Book 5

Book 5 in the Kings of Guardians series but all the books do stand alone.

Author: Kris Michaels

Genre: Military Erotic Romance

#JaredCover


Synopsis:

Jared King had endured more than the normal amount of danger in his life.  He’d jumped from planes into hot landing zones, been shot at, almost blown up—twice, damn near killed more times than he cared to remember. Yet, nothing in his past compared to the danger of admitting his feelings for Christian Koehler. When Jared pushed Christian away too hard, once too often, the young man finally left and took Jared’s heart with him.
Once upon a time, Christian Koehler had idolized Jared King. But after two years of the arrogant man's hot and cold mind games, Christian avoided the sexy Guardian like the plague. The jagged line between love and hate was paper thin and razor sharp, and Jared had pushed Christian across that line, with prejudice.
When Christian discovers what he believes is a common thread in several disappearances of the homeless and at-risk teens in his area, he immediately tells his superiors.  But neither his employer nor the D.C. cops believe the missing children are connected. Desperate to find out the truth, Christian swallows his pride and returns to the Kings and Guardian for help.
Jared seizes the opportunity to investigate the missing children and the unexpected chance to once again be part of Christian’s life. What he finds leads to a tempest of deceit, danger and intrigue that pulls Christian back into Jared’s world. This time, Jared vows to fight to keep Christian with him forever—no matter the cost.

**Release Blitz** Epic Love by Trudy Stiles


Title: Epic Love

Series: Epic Fail #3

Author: Trudy Stiles

Release Date: Sept 19, 2016






HEATH STRICKLAND, the son of a prominent district attorney, lived his life surrounded by violence and crime. He was an unwilling witness to the corrupt lives his father swore to prosecute and keep behind bars. His escape was his music, which eventually led him to replace the iconic singer of the world famous band, Epic Fail.



NOELLE DURAND lived in luxury, growing up on a sprawling estate, with everything she could ever want or need. Her life, to everyone else, seemed perfect. Perfect house. Perfect things. Perfect family. But nothing at all was perfect. She lived in hell. A hell that nobody on the outside could see.



As a neighbor and childhood friend, Heath would have done anything for Noelle. He would have given up the world to protect her and keep her safe. Their friendship grew into something that neither of them expected. But then she suddenly disappeared, vanishing from his life as if she never existed. He never stopped hoping that one day she would resurface, alive and well. But as time went by, and her family gave up hope, he surrendered his heart to his lost love.



Twelve years later, one phone call changes everything.



EPIC LOVE is the third book in the EPIC FAIL series and can be read as a STANDALONE novel.



This series is a spinoff from the FOREVER FAMILY series.




  






“I’m sorry, Noelle. I’m really sorry.” I don’t know what I’m apologizing for. The fact that I don’t believe her weak lie or because I kissed her. No. I’m not sorry for either.


“It’s okay. Really. Thanks for caring. And thank you for my birthday gift.” She pauses and brushes her pinkie finger against mine. “You made my birthday really special, and I’ll never forget it.”


Without thinking, I loop my pinkie finger around hers, linking them together. Linking us together. We walk to her window like this and I break our connection reluctantly, bringing my hand up to her bruised cheek. “Please be careful,” I beg, and I’m not sure what I’m even begging her to be careful of. I’m just so worried about her.


“I will,” she whispers. “Catch a couple fireflies on the way home.”


“I’d catch a million for you.” Her eyes light up, a smile on her lips. I want to kiss her again. So bad. But all I do is stare into her eyes and back away. I push the window open as quietly as I can and slide out onto the grass.


“Happy Birthday, Noelle.”


She smiles as we both slide the window gently along the track, closing it.


She leaves her hand pressed against the window and I immediately do the same, covering hers, only the glass pane separating us.


Her smile is weak and full of pain.


A pain that I would take away from her in an instant if I could.



Review by Wendy

Epic Love, Epic Heartache, Epic story, Epic writing, Epic Author, I love the word Epic.

The prologue will literally crush you, and sets the scene for the following story so very, very well.

I enjoyed this story so much.  I haven’t read any of the Epic Fail Series, but it did not matter at all, this story stood out for itself and had enough back story to make perfect sense.

The story gives you that warm fuzzy feeling and a sense of impending dread in equal quantities. It’s a journey of two people from a young age to adulthood, told in dual POV, their childhood experiences are very different. I love a dual POV and Ms Stiles managed to make them seamless.

The sensitive issues covered in the book are also handled well, and not over dramatised.

Noelle is just lovely, quiet, cute, and resilient and simply does not deserve the hand she has been dealt, her only joy in the world is Heath’s friendship and love.  But even this is not enough to change her fate.

Heath, yummy, yummy, yummy, handsome and yummy, oh I mentioned that already.  He’s just lovely and caring and not an arsehole that we have come to expect of hot men in books. He is left completely heartbroken by the turn in events and it’s only many years later that we learn the truth.

What was really heart-warming about the book was the road trip, I loved this time they had together, reliving the past but also rebuilding a future.


I congratulate Ms Stiles on an Epic Love story.






Trudy Stiles is a New Adult Romance author, mom to two beautiful children, and married to the love of her life. She’s the author of the bestselling Forever Family series including “Dear Emily,” “Dear Tabitha,” and “Dear Juliet.” “Epic Sins” is the first book in the Epic Fail series and will continue with at least three more standalone novels. “Epic Lies” is scheduled to release in the Spring of 2016 with “Epic Love” and “Epic Holiday” to follow in the Fall and Winter of 2016. She plans to write many more stories about some of the characters you’ve already met, and maybe a few new ones.


Trudy is a music junkie and you’ll know that she’s writing when you see her plugged into her laptop with her earbuds in. Her playlist is unique and is a must for her writing sprints.


When she’s not writing, she’s carting her children to their various activities while avoiding any kind of laundry or housework. She also loves to run along the boardwalk of the beautiful New Jersey shore.


She celebrates Wine Wednesday almost every day.

Excerpt
"You've made your point. You’re a legend; everyone knows your name. Now stop. You don't have to be this person anymore."

"Stop? What difference would it make? The damage is done. This is who I am," he growled, pounding his fist to his chest.

"This is not who you are; this is what you want everyone to believe. But I know the truth, you’re just like your father. Underneath all that hostility and rage, is a good man. And it would make a huge difference to me if you'd try to change," I said, giving him my irresistible big eyes.

He answered with a sigh.

"All I'm asking is for you to try."

"Why?"

"Because...I want to learn how to love you."

Book: An Evidence of Magic

Authors: Kris Michaels and Patricia A. Knight

Genre: M/M Crime Romance - Alternate Reality

#AnEvidenceofMagicTour


Goodreads
Synopsis
Forty-year-old, hard bitten, foul-mouthed, homicide detective, Hiro Santos, suspects the owner of the art studio committed the gory killing. Too bad. There are other things he'd like to do to the gorgeous young man than book him for murder. Worse, his sexy suspect is certifiable. The nutcase claims he's some kind of high wizard from an alternate reality and needs Hiro's help to save their worlds.


While the striking Sable Campion appears a youthful twenty-five, he’s endured over two-hundred lonely years as guardian of the portal between Everlight and Elysium. None of those centuries offered him any experience finding a vicious killer. That's where Hiro Santos comes in; but convincing the virile detective to trust Sable will take all his persuasive skills...and perhaps a bit of magic. 
The magic they find in each other's arms will rock each of their realities.

Tara's 4 Star review

"Unless he was on one hell of a psychotic break from reality, Mr. Magic had him believing in portals to alternate realities, mystical energy, light shows, and magic orgasms."

Magic, lust, portals...An Evidence of Magic is a roller coaster ride. Taking a trip from reality should be a breath taking, relaxing experience. But when a string of murders leads Hiro Santos to Elysium, mystery, lies, and a stunning magic man makes Hiro see this new world clearly. Sable has been lonely for over 200 years. When he crosses Hiro's path, an undeniable force draws the two men together. But magic can also push things apart.  Can Sable prove to Hiro that he's more than a magic show?

"Unless he was on one hell of a psychotic break from reality, Mr. Magic had him believing in portals to alternate realities, mystical energy, light shows, and magic orgasms."

Patricia and Kris wrote flawlessly together. The joining of Everlight and Elysium's worlds takes the reader on a journey into corruption, love and magic. Throw in a little sarcastic humour, and you have An Evidence of Magic. The relationship that Patricia and Kris create between Sable and Hiro is beautiful. Rough and soft, Sable and Hiro are polar opposites that balance each other out. The way Patricia and Kris wrote these two characters really shows the love that they put into this book!

"He’d found the place he belonged, the person he would spend the rest of his life with, and a direction to follow. He couldn’t wait to show his man just how magical their life together would be."

**Release Blitz** Sins That Haunt by Lucy Farago






Sins That Haunt by Lucy Farago

Release Blitz: 13th September

Part of the 'Women of Vegas' Series and CAN be read standalone. 

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Goodreads

Synopsis

The glitz and glamour of Las Vegas hide a multitude of sins. And in Lucy Farago’s show-stopping series, a lawyer and an FBI agent take a walk on the seedy side, where greed breeds a deadly desperation...

Civil attorney Shannon Joyce walks the line of law and order, but she learned from day one how to put up a good front—thanks to her con man father. Thirteen years ago, she left the east coast and her life of crime behind. Her high school sweetheart, Noah, was collateral damage, but some things can’t be helped. But now there’s no escape when her past comes roaring down the Strip—in the oh-so-tempting form of the man she left behind...

Special Agent Noah Monroe has Shannon exactly where he wants her—in the back of his car in handcuffs. Her grifter father has been murdered, and the FBI needs Shannon to keep one of his scams in play to bag the big bad guy who was financing him. Once again a pawn in someone’s else game, Shannon will have to trust her instincts to survive both the peril threatening her—and the passion Noah reignites… 

"Lucy Farago has an eye for detail, a heart for romance, and a voice as layered as her plot and characters!"--Roxanne St. Claire, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Meet The Author:

I didn’t set out to be a writer. 
I went to university thinking I’d come out with a degree that would allow me to help people. And for a short time it did. But then I got married and had two children and 12-hour shifts were no longer an option. So I took a job as an office administrator and learned book keeping. When I had my third child, I chose to work from home and kept the books for my husband’s restaurants.

I’d been artsy all my life.
I wrote poetry and short stories in high school but never really considered it writing. It was just a way to express myself.

When the kids came along, I spent hours decorating their rooms, finding ways to incorporate whatever theme I’d come up with. I didn’t consider myself creative. I was just having fun.

Then we moved to a lovely village outside the city limits, and I found myself at home with a new baby and nothing to do. I was proficient at my bookkeeping and it took up little of my time. So I baked. Again, being creative never crossed my mind. I’d found something I enjoyed doing and I didn’t gain an ounce by sharing with my friends—letting them worry about the calories. Creative? Hey, I needed to stay busy.

No stranger to a gym, I learned I could get paid to workout. I became a fitness instructor. I’m known for the inventive ways I torture my members week after week. No creativity here. I’m just a sadist at heart.

I then rediscovered romance novels.
Karen Marie Moning became one of my favorite authors. On her website, she gave advice on how to become a writer, as did another of my favorites, Sherrilyn Kenyon. Me, a writer? Didn’t you have to go to school? Sure you did. I had friends who’d done just that. But I figured what the heck, and tinkered with a story. Getting published never crossed my mind. Again, this was just for fun, because I wasn’t trained to be a writer.

It was my husband who pointed out all the things I didn’t do to be creative. He encouraged me to go for it, to be a writer. I had my own hero and didn’t even realize it.

I joined the Romance Writer’s of America in 2007 and my local Canadian chapter shortly after that. In the summer of 2014, one year after I met my editor at the RWA conference in Atlanta, Kensington Publishing offered to publish my Women of Vegas series, and I signed with The Knight Agency. It may have taken me a little while to figure it out, but I am proud and happy to say I am a romance writer.

**Blog Post** Baited Truth by Jenn Hype



Book: Baited Truth

Author: Jenn Hype

Release Date: 6th September

Genre: Romantic Suspense

#BaitedTruthTour




Synopsis:

Brooke

Nothing about my life has been easy, but that hasn’t stopped me from living it. So when someone sets out to steal that life from me, they better come heavily armed and with an army close behind, because nothing short of nuclear warfare is going to stop me from protecting what’s mine. 

When my mom gets taken, I set out to find her and missing pieces of a puzzle I didn’t even know existed start to fall into place.

I might end up paying the price for someone else’s sins, but there’s no turning back now. I’m far too invested in this now - in finding my mom, in untangling the web of lies surrounding me, and more than anything else, I’m far too invested in the sexy, secretive and seriously annoying man helping me.

Grant

As an ex-SEAL that’s seen and endured horrors the majority of civilians think only exist in Hollywood, I really thought there wasn’t much that could surprise me anymore.

Then Jack, my boss and closest thing I have to a dad, goes missing.

He goes missing on the same day a pint-sized little spitfire that makes waterboarding sound relaxing compared to her relentless persistence shows up. She shows up someplace she doesn't belong and claims to be looking for her mom, who was abducted the same day Jack went missing.

Her arrival starts looking less and less like a coincidence and more like karma looking to punish me for decades of sins I didn't even know I'd committed.

She fights me at every turn. Challenges me in the worst ways. And turns me on like no woman has before.

Not that I have any plans of hooking up with the nuisance who lives to make my life difficult. I'd have to be a giant dumbass to get into bed with her before knowing if she's friend or foe.

Apparently I'm a giant dumbass.

Meet The Author:

What's up world - I'm Jenn Hype.

Author, mother, wife, singer/songwriter, aspiring comedian - I wear many hats. Some of them fit, some of them look ridiculous, and all of them are fun. Life's too short to take anything too seriously, so I don't. 

Sarcasm is my go-to, especially when it's most inappropriate. Need someone to make an uncomfortable situation even more awkward? I'm the girl for the job.

I'm ridiculously A.D.D. and I own it. I have a serious addiction to ecards and the majority of my Pinterest account is dedicated to them. The key to my heart is glitter and caffeine - my needs are basic.

I'm a bookaholic and I crush hard on my book boyfriends and their authors. Some might call me obsessive, but I disagree. That word really doesn't do justice to how crazy I get when it comes to something I'm passionate about. I'm not afraid to go fangirl on you, so don't test me.

Anything else you want to know, feel free to ask. I'm an open book, and I love to hear from readers.

5* Review from Tara

"Something about him made me feel vulnerable, exposed. Being near him made me feel like I'd been pricked, the hole too minute and obscure to be seen, but still big enough to let my demons slowly seep out like a deflating balloon."

This book was like an adrenaline rush!!!!!  From the first paragraph, I was taken into an action filled, suspenseful, and sexual charged whirlwind. Baited Truth is incredible!!

"Space. Privacy. A minute alone without brooding, attempted murderers and a group of strangers all treating me like a caged animal. If I didn't get a chance to just take a few deep breaths and gather myself, then the fear threatening to consume me would finally get to sink its angry talons into me."

Brooke has always been self sufficient, not wanting to depend on others. When a strange and unwanted encounter occurs, Brooke is thrown into a world where things aren't what they seem....where she suddenly needs someone more than ever. Grant is much like Brooke. He lives a secluded life, most of it top secret. When Brooke enters the picture, their worlds collide in an explosive way!!!

"I'd decided to trust her, but I hadn't told her that. Every second with her had felt like a game, a battle for control. But if we were going to both make it out of this alive -and by alive, I mean us not killing each other -then compromises needed to be made. Starting with me."

I love Jenn Hype's books!  Her writing and subject matters are so unique. There are no fru-fru love stories. Only real and raw connections.  I HIGHLY recommend Baited Truth!  You will not be disappointed!!!!
