Release Date: Mar 13 2018

Home, love, and possibilities he never imagined are waiting for Billy Joe to claim them. But first he needs to escape the horrors of his past.

 A twisted act of cruelty and prejudice drives Billy Joe from his Mississippi home, and he makes it as far as Pennsylvania—where his car breaks down just as the year’s first snowstorm blows in. Fortunately, Carlos is there to lend a hand.

Carlos is no stranger to hardship. His family rejected him for being gay, but with determination, he put himself through school and became a librarian. Carlos sees the same willpower in Billy, and he wants to help Billy and his son succeed in a new life that is very different from the one they left behind. With his support, they start to adjust, and before long, both men want more than encouragement from each other. They want the chance for a future together, but their families have other ideas… and Billy’s will stop at nothing to get what they want.

“I wanted to ask. Is the dad you helped cute?”
And here Carlos had thought he’d managed to escape Angie’s matchmaking fanaticism… just once. She was the happiest person Carlos had ever known, and she wanted everyone to be as deliriously content as she was… whether they wanted it or not.
He groaned, trying to figure out how he could not answer without just hanging up.
Angie wasn’t going to let it go. “Just tell me!”
“Dang it. Yeah, he was cute, in a sort of clueless, scared rabbit sort of way. The guy is running from something. That’s pretty obvious, and there was fear written all over his face. I’m not sure what it was, but I think he looks the same way I did when I left Amarillo in the middle of the night. My cousin had threatened to kill me rather than have a maric√≥n in his family.” Carlos swallowed hard as he remembered packing and getting out of town ahead of the lynch mob.
“That bad?” She whistled softly. “Just be careful and don’t get taken in.”
He rolled his eyes. She was a total mother hen. “I’ll be fine. It’s only for a night, and tomorrow he’ll probably be on his way.” He ended the call, making her promise again to let him know when she made it home okay.
His stomach rumbled, reminding him he hadn’t stopped to pick up something for dinner the way he originally had intended. He stared at the contents of his refrigerator and decided to reheat some pasta he’d made earlier in the week.
Carlos sat at his small table, eating his dinner. He was in no hurry, and a relaxing evening seemed in order. Once he was done, Carlos rinsed his dishes, headed to the sofa, and settled in to read. 
Books were his passion, so he spent his spare time with them rather than the television. The wind rattled the windows, and even though the apartment was warm, the sound chilled him. He grabbed the blanket from off the back of the sofa and pulled it over him, making a nest before getting lost in the story of pirates and adventure on the high seas. Angie texted him that she was home just as he got back into the story.

WMS: Release Blitz: Shadows of Our Past by Tanya J Russell

 Shadows of Our Past 
@TanyaJRussell, @evernightpub 

#RomanticSuspense #Romance

Undercover in an English Country estate - confronted by her first love, and her first deception 


Jackson Halland has spent ten years running from a mistake that cost him everything, including Amory Parker, the woman he loved. With his gut wrenching response to her reappearance, he realises that if she will forgive him, then maybe, just maybe, he can forgive himself.

After ten years of working undercover Amory agrees to one final mission. Vowing to get justice for the woman she promised, and failed, to protect, nothing will stand in her way, not the prolific criminal she’s determined to bring down and certainly not coming face to face with the man she fell in love with on her very first undercover assignment, even if he has no idea who she really is, or the part she played in his past.

Amory was so engrossed in her thoughts she didn’t hear the approaching sound of bare feet, padding on the smooth wooden floor, until a deep groan broke through them and she looked up to see Jackson. His mussed, dark blond hair was shot through with strands of gold in the overhead lighting.

The man was incredibly made. His arms stretching up and behind his head caused the bottom of his t-shirt to lift a few teasing inches, revealing a tantalizing glimpse of a tanned, rock-hard stomach. They weren’t the sculpted lines that came from the gym, but powerful, solid muscles. A fine trail of hair led the way to the top of his loose navy shorts. As he reached the bottom of the stairs, her gaze was transfixed.

His legs were long and thick, every muscle rippling as he moved down the stairs into the hallway. A rush of heat shot through her body, setting every nerve alight. Her stomach rolled as she absorbed the sight while a little lower everything tightened and tingled. She’d hoped that her memory had been flawed, tinted by the rose-colored lenses of what she had long since accepted was her first love. That clearly wasn’t the case. Rather than letting himself go he had become more impressive. The slenderness of youth had filled out, living up to the promise of overwhelming masculinity.

His lean muscles had broadened, and whilst the softness of youth had faded from his features, it had left a strong profile in its wake. Jackson had grown up all man. She gulped, heat flooding her.

The good feeling from her run was replaced by a more base desire to touch every inch of his perfect body. To pull it hard against her own and feel those muscular planes mold against her. She unconsciously licked her lips as she watched him.

As she met his eyes, the feeling of heat evaporated, replaced by a harsh chill of dread that sank through to her toes. His emotions were playing across his face and it was clear that, despite her DCI’s reassurances, Jackson had joined the dots and figured out who she was. The recognition clearly shocked him as his whole body jolted abruptly to a stop.

Unable to move, she stared helplessly as he began to walk toward her, his face a mix of unreadable emotions. As he reached out, her body began to respond to the heat that rolled off of him. The scent of his skin washed over her, but she moved back defensively. It was a tactical mistake, giving away that she knew who he was, that she had known all along.

“Amory?” he whispered, hope shining oddly through that one word.

Almost imperceptibly shaking her head, all her professionalism flew out the window, and with her heart sinking she managed a stuttered whisper, “N-n-no… No, you’re wrong. I’m Olivia.”

No amount of training was going to get her through this. Despite her only half-admitted hope that he’d see who she really was, Amory knew too much was at stake for this to happen, but it had. Now she had to endure the awful consequences of him recognizing her, the hatred that would follow this moment.

RBTL Tours: Ok Danny Boy VOL 2 by Felicia Johnson

Title: Ok Danny Boy: Monster Vol. 2
Author: Felicia Johnson
Series: Ok Danny Boy Trilogy (Book 2) 
Genre:  Young Adult to New Adult...Coming of Age
Publisher: S.P.E. Media, Productions and Publishing
Release January 8, 2018
Edition/Formats Available In: eBook & Print


The spin-off of “HER” is called “OK Danny Boy". This three part book series follows the story of an artistic and mysterious young man who Kristen meets during her stay in Bent Creek Hospital. Daniel proved to be a supportive peer, whom Kristen saw as a positive influence throughout her recovery. However, Daniel had not always been a role model. Daniel is diagnosed with Bi-Polar Disorder, OCD and Juvenile Diabetes. His story follows his journey throughout his healing and learning to cope with life’s transitions, coming of age, living with mental illness as well as a physical illness and the suicide of a close friend. Fans of “HER” will get to see what it was like on the other side of the Adolescent Ward.

Part one: "CHAOS" follows Daniel's life before he goes into Bent Creek Hospital during his mental breakdown.
Part two: "MONSTER" follows Daniel's story while he is in Bent Creek Hospital through his treatment.
Part three: "LOVE" follows Daniel after his treatment in Bent Creek Hospital into his recovery process.

*** This is part of a trilogy. These are the first two books in the OK Danny Boy series. The third book is to be released this summer. However, the OK Danny Boy trilogy is a spin-off of my first novel called “HER”. Daniel is a character from “HER” and OK Danny Boy is his story. It is recommended to read “HER” before the Danny Boy trilogy but it is not necessary. It is important to read Ok Danny Boy volume 1 before you read volume 2. ***

After a couple of days, I got used to the routine at Bent Creek. Wake up, check vital signs, chat for a bit with your group and group leader while waiting for breakfast, and take my insulin, morning goals group with a mix of different counselors along with the doctor leading the goals group, my doctor, Dr. Finch.
Dr. Finch sat with me in the room after morning goals group. As always, he looked dapper and acted chill. Dr. Finch always seemed to have a cool composure and calm demeanor.
It was easy to talk with him. I mostly stayed on the surface of things with him because when it was time to go deep I couldn't do it. I felt like if I did go down the dark path of what had actually happened and how I truly felt about it all, I would lose the comfort zone I was in and in turn I'd lose my ability to want to talk to Dr. Finch or even be in Bent Creek Hospital. What else was I going to do if I didn't stay here? Go back home where Mom and Pop fight and make me feel crazy? Sit and watch reality fake TV with Mom-Mom and we take our insulin together and stay silent about the other medications that I need to function? There was no way in hell I was going back to that church so that the scary priest man could squeeze my head and the bronze statue of the man with arms wide open would stare at me and watch and let them do those things to me.
"I want to talk about home, Daniel." Dr. Finch said. "What is home life like for you?"
I put my feet up in the chair and rested my chin on top of my knees. It made it easier to untie and retie my shoelaces. I don't know where or how I picked up this nervous picking habit. It seems to have started at the beginning of the school year, shortly after I was put on academic probation.
"Home," I said. "Home. Home. Home." I almost began to sing it as I belted the word out once more.
Dr. Finch blinked and waited.
"It's okay. Mom-Mom is great. She is weird like me, but she is different because she is into church stuff. I don't judge her or anything. I wish that she wouldn't judge me. Pop, well, Pop is just Pop. I mean," I chuckled. "He is in and out. He doesn't have a job yet. Mom is working around the clock and she leaves it to me to take Mom-Mom to the doctors. Which, really, I don't know what's going on there because Mom-Mom has been going to the doctor's office a lot lately and it worries me. It could be because of Diabetes. Anyway, she says that she is okay. You see, me, my Pop and Mom-Mom all have Diabetes. We got it when we were kids. I shouldn't have kids because they'll probably have it too. Besides, Theresa would hate that. She wouldn't want to..."
Dr. Finch's expression changed. He furrowed his eyebrows and cocked his head to the side. He looked thoroughly confused yet concerned.
"Go on," he encouraged me to speak more.
I shrugged my shoulders and leaned back in my chair. I said, "I worry about my mother."
"Tell me more about that, Daniel. Tell me about what worries you."
Dr. Finch was the first doctor that I ever had that wanted me to talk about it. Still, I felt uncomfortable as I sat in the chair across from him. I picked at my shoelaces and kept my head down. I desperately wanted to smoke. It was out of question to ask for cigarettes.
Dr. Finch waited for me to answer him, but I had no idea where to start. It was frustrating, trying to find the right words to explain the hows and whys of everything when most of the shit didn't make enough sense to try to explain.
"It's okay," Dr. Finch said. "I'll ask you in another way. Why did you ask to come to Bent Creek? You could have gone home after you were released from Egleston Hospital."
"I guess..." I said with a heavy sigh, "I guess it was because I had no other place to go."
"What do you mean?"
"I mean that I couldn't go back home after everything that had happened. It was hard for them."       
"It was hard for whom?"
"Mom-Mom, my Mom, my Pop and Theresa..."
"What about you?"
"What about me?"
"Since you've been here, you have only talked about everyone else's problems, but what about you?"
"I don't know," I admitted.
Dr. Finch didn't look like he was buying it. He shook his head and gestured his hands out to me as he spoke, as if he was pleading with me.
"Look, Daniel," Dr. Finch said. "I know that it's not easy. Especially when you have been through all of what you've been through in the last week or so. The emotional stress on top of your physical stress from the complications you suffered with Diabetes, it's-"
I don't know what came over me. I put up my hand to stop Dr. Finch from speaking and I cut him off.
I said, "Having diabetes isn’t the real challenge. Sure, I have to stick myself with a needle about two times a day. I have complications if I don't watch what I eat and take care of myself physically. Like, I can’t eat what everyone else eats like candy bars and birthday cake. I can live with that. I always have lived with it. It’s the Bi-Polar Disorder that messes me up. One minute I’m fine and as soon as something happens that makes me angry, I lose it. It's like when I last saw Theresa talking to Ryan, I just wanted to kill him." I paused and looked out of the window. Still picking my shoelaces, I tried to calm down. It felt like my emotions wanted to get the best of me. I didn't want to cry. I couldn't cry!
Dr. Finch remained calm and quiet. He watched and listened to me intently. It was a strange feeling to have someone listen and care about what I had been through the way that Dr. Finch seemed to.
I continued, "I don’t understand Bi-Polar like I understand Diabetes. Diabetes is simple. It’s genetic. My grandmother has it and my father has it. Maybe Bi-polar is genetic too?" I paused. When Dr. Finch didn't respond I said with a shrug, "I don’t know."
Dr. Finch nodded his head and remained silent. I expected him to tell me if it was true or not. I wondered if it was genetic. I expected him to hit me with some popular statistic or something. I looked at him and something about his concerned expression made me chuckle. He made me a bit anxious. The next few words out of my mouth seemed to spill out without thought.
"When I was a kid, I watched my father beat a man into a coma. I didn’t do anything to help the man. I just stood there and watched as my father beat the man’s face into a bloody pile of meat with his bare hands. I didn’t cry. I didn’t scream. I didn’t react at all. I even had a bad dog bite from the guy's German Shepard. I still didn't show any emotions. My dad just spent the last few years in prison for hurting that man. After serving seven years, he came home last week. We never talk about it. My mom tried to talk to me about it one time, but I didn't know what to say. Mom concluded that I was in shock and she didn't press me anymore about it."
Dr. Finch raised his eyebrows. He opened his mouth as if he was about to say something, but I didn't let him speak. I started to laugh and he shut his mouth. He looked at me questionably and asked, "What's funny about that, Daniel?"
I continued to laugh as I said; "It's funny to me because now it makes sense."
"What makes sense?" Dr. Finch asked.
I answered, "I guess that I’ve been in shock for the past seven years."

Killing Vampires? Easy. Tracking someone? Simple.
Helping, and protecting a Vampire slayer . . . . Bloody hard work!

Thirteen years ago, Brendan Daniels made a deal with a psychic. In exchange for information on the whereabouts of a Rogue Werewolf, he promised to help and protect Sofia's granddaughter. Unfortunately, he had no idea what he was letting himself, or his Pack, in for.

Nothing about Heather is simple, from her weird dietary needs to her life’s mission. The girl can handle herself, but the promise to protect her soon becomes a need, and one he can't fully understand.

Vampire Slayer. Born Infected.
Addicted to blood . . . but not by choice.

Heather Ryan is the current Slayer in a long family line. Like all before her, she has spent her life searching for her ancestor, Marko Pavel, the Vampire her family has sworn to kill. If that isn't complicated enough, she is also a born "Infected", and to keep her from becoming insane or giving in to her darker side, she is on a very strict diet.

Now that her Grandmother Sofia has passed, it is up to Heather to take the family legacy into her own hands. Or at least, it would have been...if her Grandmother hadn't sent a Werewolf to help her.

What is the irritating Brendan supposed to help her with? Sofia never told either of them. Luckily, it doesn't take long for Heather and Brendan to find out that the Vampires have big plans, and that the Leeches have waited a long time for them both.

This title contains explicit language, violence, and some scenes of a sexual nature.

Blood Secrets

Blood Series: Book Two

When your life is messed up to begin with, how much worse can it really get?

Heather Ryan's life has never been simple. The latest in a long line of descendants who have made it their mission to hunt down and slay the Ancient Vampire, Marko Pavel, she is also the first born Infected. Up until recently, the biggest downside to living with the Vampyrric Virus was simply that she craved blood, but after receiving a DVD from her deceased Grandmother Sofia and being kidnapped with friend and so called guardian Werewolf, Brendan Daniels, she quickly discovers that she is also the inspiration behind the Vampires’ attempt to create a whole new breed of super monsters—Hybrids.

The truth comes at a cost, but how much does one have to sacrifice to gain success?

Following the breadcrumbs left by her psychic Grandmother, Heather and Brendan find themselves in new territory. Venice is where Heather hopes to find Marie, the second Bloodling of Marko, along with Brendan's three taken Pack members. But an old Peace Pact between the Italian Pack and the Colony means they are left hunting blind, and due to the Italian Alpha's reluctance to believe their story of kidnap and experimentation on Loup-Garous, time is running out. So when help comes from an unlikely source, they have no choice but to accept.

All families have secrets, but blood can't lie.

Caught up in an intricate and complicated scheme spun by the one she trusts the most and the friend of her enemy, Heather soon discovers that she is the pawn in a plan she would never have been able to conceive. But how many of her new allies were in on the game, to begin with?

This title contains explicit language, violence, and some scenes of a sexual nature.
