Cover Reveal- Overdose by Raven St. Pierre 

Hi everyone! I’m super excited to be a part of the cover reveal for Raven St. Pierre’s upcoming standalone, Overdose! If you are a fan of Ms. St. Pierre’s work (like I am), then you know this will be a great read. 

And here it is: 


And might I add, this cover is HOT!! 
Blurb:
**Special Notice: This romance is of the darker variety, contains adult themes, and sexually explicit content. The hero is flawed and dirty. Consider yourself warned**
Insomniac. 

Narcissist. 

Sex addict.
…the only description sex therapist, Vanessa Ferris, was given of her newest patient, a fellow psychologist, Dr. Zander Hale.
From the moment he entered her office, she knew he’d be trouble—possibly the good kind. What she wasn’t prepared for was how he’d blindside her; how he would challenge everything she thought she knew about her profession, about herself.
There are certain lines a doctor is warned never to cross with their patients, but she didn’t listen. 
Now, they’re both addicted.
One hit was all it took.
***AUTHOR NOTE: “OVERDOSE” is a full-length standalone, bursting at the seams with sexual heat, thanks to one smoking hot bad-boy and his feisty, no nonsense therapist. Expect a dark tale of erotic romance with no cliffhanger. This story is not for the faint of heart and is definitely intended for readers 18 and older.

(130,000+ words)
***TRIGGER WARNING: Be advised, this book contains a brief, nondescript reference to sexual abuse and other violent acts that some readers may find offensive.

Release Blitz- MISFIT By Kathryn Kelly

Release Blitz

Title: MISFIT

Series: Death Dwellers MC: Book 6

Author: Kathryn Kelly

Release Date: August 23, 2016

Ophelia Donovan wants to move past the loves of her life, two badass bikers in her brother’s MC. When she gave Cash “Ghost” McCall and Louis “Stretch” King, an ultimatum of bringing their relationship out in the open or she’d walk, they chose separation. It crushed Ophelia’s dreams of having a happily-ever-after and family with Ghost and Stretch.

Stretch lives with guilt and pain from the death of his former lover and the injuries he received the same night. For a while, Cash and Stretch worked fine. They’d agreed to choose a woman together to bring into their relationship. Instead, Cash brought Outlaw’s sister in, intending to use her as a shield for Cash’s growing feelings for both Stretch and Fee. The dissolution of their relationship because of Fee’s goading leaves Stretch angry with both of his lovers.

Ghost doesn’t do relationships. He doesn’t have the confidence in himself that he’s equipped for something meaningful. He only knows he loves both Stretch and Ophelia. She wants kids, a house with him and Stretch, and, most of all, an open relationship with them, so open she expects Ghost to go to her brother—his club’s president—and confess all. Even if he did do commitment, he wouldn’t be alive to see it through. Outlaw would kill Ghost, especially after already warning him away. Thanks to Cash’s outrageous plan to throw Outlaw off, he raises the man’s suspicions instead.

Christopher “Outlaw” Caldwell knows Ghost is about fun and fucking. He’s in charge of the Bobs, those women trotted out for pleasure at special club occasions. Outlaw’s little sister wants a family and he refuses to allow her to waste her years on a man who’ll walk away in the end. Outlaw’s life has been quiet recently, with every known club threat removed, giving him plenty of time to focus on family.

A biker from a rival club uses Ophelia to get on Outlaw’s good side, leaving her gravely injured, Outlaw in jail, Stretch admitting how important both she and Cash are to him, and Cash determined to never deny his love again.

Warning: Not suitable for anyone under 18. Contains excessive swearing, graphic sex between MMF, taboo subjects, and…Kendall at her finest.

Daphne, fuck, don’t fucking do this. You’re wrong about Meggie and Fee is caught up in this.”

Folding her arms, Daphne scowled.

Cash cursed his stupidity. She’d have no sympathy for Fee.

“That fucking matters to me how?”

“Whatever you believe about Meggie, what has Fee ever done to you?”

“Other than get you?”

“Don’t say that bullshit! Ophelia doesn’t have me. Outlaw has barred me from having anything to do with her.”

“That didn’t stop you, did it? So she has you.”

Thinking of this weekend, Cash knew Daphne was right. Something had changed between all three of them. A new dynamic that Cash had to fight.

“Fee doesn’t deserve to have her brother turn against her because you want money and Kendall wants a fucking job.”

Instead of responding, Daphne leaned back and peeped at him through her lashes, roaming her hands down his back. “Why are we arguing?”

Her touch added to his pain and he grimaced, jerking away. “Why are we arguing? Why don’t I just blow you the fuck away and save Outlaw the trouble?”

Daphne tensed, fear sliding into her face. “You’d kill me for helping Kendall take a page from your book? Granted, she’s been paying me to fuck with Meggie, here and there. But she’s using your diversionary tactics. Your games gave Kendall this idea.”

The woman twisted anything to benefit herself. “Let me guess,” Cash said tightly. “You told her what I did?”

“Naturally.”

Kendall wanted seven days. He’d been furious that Fee’d allowed herself to be blackmailed, but Cash understood the position she’d found herself in.

He could kill Daphne, but they rarely killed women. While he was concerned about Meggie, his main priority was Fee. Any action on his part might give Kendall unnecessary ammunition. Outlaw casting Fee aside due to poor judgment would devastate her.

Sick to his stomach, he got to his feet. He’d been so fucking arrogant and disrespectful. Now, the shit was coming back to bite him in the ass. The next seven days would be unbearable but he had no one to blame but himself. He couldn’t even blame Kendall.

His antics left him with two choices: Confess all to spare Outlaw drama with Meggie, and forfeit his own life, not to mention Stretch’s, Kendall’s, and Daphne’s, while also ruining Fee’s relationship with her brother. Or, allow it all to go down, knowing Meggie had already gotten upset over Daphne.

Whichever he decided, he hoped he came out alive after his bad judgment started a chain of bullshit that spiraled out-of-control.

Sample Sunday: Into You 


Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Sunday! Since Sunday is almost over, I still wanted to share an excerpt to my upcoming release, Into You. This scene takes place on the same day that the main characters,  Vanessa and Mark meet. She had an unexcepted event occur, so Mark decided to help her out. And well, take a look at the excerpt.🙂 And it is unedited. 

I looked around at my new room in Simone’s house and sighed. After two and a half hours of moving everything out of my condo, everything was crammed in either my room, Simone’s living room, or in her garage. Luckily she didn’t have anything in her guest room so I was able to place all of my bedroom furniture there.

I was about to lay down on my bed when there was a knock at the door. I looked over and saw Mark come in.  
“Is it okay if I come in.”  
“Sure.”  

He walked to the bed and stared at me. I quickly got up and went over to him.

“I really have to thank you for everything. You were even able to put my bed up. That was really sweet of you.”

“I didn’t want you sleeping on the floor. With everything that happened today, you need a good night’s rest.”

“Well, I appreciate it. I would like to take you out to dinner as a thank you.”

He shook his head. “You don’t have to. I was glad to do it.”

I suddenly became nervous as I looked at him. He had a bit of sweat on his forehead as I slowly wiped away with my fingers. He gave me a confused look as I smiled.

“I didn’t want the sweat to fall down your face. You know once it gets to your eyes…”

“It stings. Happens a lot to me while I’m working.”

I quickly walked over to the doorway to retrieve a box. I was about to pick it up when I lost my balance. Mark came over to help me. We both stared at each other as he slowly let go of my waist.

“Sorry, I didn’t want you to fall.”

“It’s fine. Thank you. Where is Simone? Did she leave for work?”

“Yeah, she did. I think you were in the bathroom. She said she’ll call you later.”

“Okay. Well, I guess I better unpack a couple of things before I get some rest.”

“Did you want me to help you?” He asked while coming up to me. I could feel him close to me as he tried to grab a small box beside me. His shoulder brushed against mine which sent several tingles through me.

“It’s okay. I can manage.”

“You sure. I don’t mind.”

He looked at me as his hand slowly lingered down my arm. My heart started pounding as he continued to touch me. No matter how good it felt right now, I couldn’t let this continue.

“I’m fine, Mark. Thank you, though.”

He nodded. “Okay. I’ll see you tomorrow.”

I smiled. “See you tomorrow.”

He went towards the hallway and I followed him. He opened the door and walked outside. He turned around and stared at me.

“There’s something I have to do though.”

He grabbed my waist and stared into my eyes before slowly bringing me to him. His lips touched mine, which I was completely surprised about, but very turned on. His hands slowly caressed my lower back, as they were creeping to my ass. My hands were in his hair, as my tongue went into his mouth. I began to whimper as I felt his hard on pressed against me. That’s when I knew we had to stop.

I slowly pulled away from him as he ran a hand through his hair. I had to control my breathing as he was doing the same for his.

“Now my night is complete. See you, Vanessa.”

I watched him as he went to his truck. He looked back at me again before getting inside. I slowly closed the door, not knowing what the hell just happened. I touched my lips, still feeling his on them. My hands went to my breasts as my body was on fire. I completely forgot about unpacking as I went to my room. I needed to take a shower. A long, steamy shower.

Into You will be available only on Amzon October 8th . You can pre-order your copy now for $0.99. It will go to $2.99 on release day.

Genres: African American Fiction, Romance, Suspense, Crime Fiction, Urban Fiction

Editorial Review

“In a day and age where acts of senseless violence are committed at an alarming rate, the only thing more frightening is the grave injustice on behalf of murdered victims as their killers continue to walk the streets. This lack of justice has created an atmosphere of despair which leads to resentment by those affected the most, to the point where they harbor a burning desire to take matters into their own hands. An eye for an eye, if you will.

Talented authors Perri Forrest and Jasmine Williams capture that revengeful spirit in “Beautiful Vengeance” as they take readers on an emotional journey in the dangerous West Oakland streets where innocent lives continue to be tragically affected by cops, gangs and the ones we trust the most. The story begins with two sisters, Angel and Angelique Simmons, and their cousin Rikki, whom themselves mourn the loss of their mother and cousin Audrey Ellis after she was murdered years earlier in a hail of bullets. Audrey’s killer remains free.

Years later, as the nonexistence of law and order continues to build in the city, the three deeply-afflicted and wounded women begin their own movement for social change. Sometimes the families of victims are able to reach deep down inside and forgive the perpetrators for their cowardly acts. Other times, all it takes is another act of injustice before that burning desire turns into a flame. Enough is enough. There must be consequence. I consider “Beautiful Vengeance” to be a timely read in the face of all that takes place in society, today, with the Black Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter developments.

The truth is all lives matter: In life, and death, and most importantly revenge.

I enjoyed this book. As someone who has experienced the tragic loss of innocently murdered loved ones, I understand how it feels to be impacted by their deaths far greater than many know, especially when their killers haven’t been brought to justice. To live every single day without harboring feelings of retribution in the back of your mind is a daunting task and even more disheartening when the perpetrators are knowingly and unknowingly among you.

“Beautiful Vengeance” offers a well-written, well-developed, action-packed and suspenseful thirty-eight chapters filled with strong and rounded characters that come to life and death. The general premise of the story is sometimes you must take matters or better yet, revenge, into your own hands.”

– Don Christoper, former blogger at Minus the Bars

 

Synopsis

Two Amazon bestselling fiction authors came together to pen a riveting novel about family, love, loss, and the levels of passion they can all evoke. “Beautiful Vengeance” is not your average story and is guaranteed to draw a plethora of emotions from readers.

When twenty-seven year old Audrey Ellis died in a hail of bullets on the streets of Oakland, it was a horrific scene for everyone who witnessed it. But none were more devastated by the tragedy than, Angel and Angelique, her two daughters and Rikki, her younger cousin, who unfortunately, had front row seats as the deadly scene played out.

They say that time heals all pain…

But sometimes this maxim is not a ‘one-size fits all’. Years later, each of the girls, now women, have full lives and have managed to get beyond the pain of their loss . . . kind of. Most people who have lived through traumatic events have trigger points. And sometimes those trigger points can cause repressed emotions to brim to the surface at the most unexpected times . . .

Rikki, Angel, and Angelique have collectively found a way of soothing their deeply inflicted wound. They want to help. So, they’ve taken matters into their own hands and where the police have failed, they have succeeded. Together, they are a force to be reckoned with as they take it upon themselves to make sure that those who commit acts of senseless violence are served justice—vigilante justice.

But the driving force behind the girls’ mission is laced with secrets and betrayal. Way too many, in fact. And before long, the many complicated layers begin to peel leaving in its wake, more questions than answers. “Beautiful Vengeance” is a whirlwind story with something for everyone, and will keep readers guessing.

This story is reminisced to the In Love With My Best Friend days as two people come to terms with how they feel for each other, but have a few people standing in their way of happiness. I’m having such a great time writing this story and I think you will enjoy Vanessa and Mark’s journey to love.
