Sabrina Washington has worked hard to get what she wants in life. The last thing the sassy, headstrong VP executive wants is an Alpha male who breaks all the rules, but when she meets Antonio De Luca, her steely façade starts to crumble under his gaze. He's exactly the kind of man who can unravel her straight-shooting reputation and she's not so convinced that's a bad thing.  As they grow closer, her ability to resist her desires begins to waver. Soon, she finds herself immersed in his sexy and dangerous world and she's not sure she wants to go back to her old life...

Antonio and Sabrina Struck in Love 3

 

Antonio and Sabrina think they’ve put the worst behind them. They’re ready to begin the next chapter of their lives, but forces beyond their control have other plans for them. Before either can settle into their new roles of parent and newly-minted Don of the De Luca Cartel, people from their sordid pasts take their vengeance a step further.

 

Distinguishing friend from foe, acquaintances from hired guns is only the beginning of the trouble they’ll face. If Antonio can’t bring this madness to an end, he may very well lose not only his new title, but lose the family he fought so hard for.
Will their unimaginable love story end in tragedy or will their shared will to survive see them through?

Tell us something really interesting that's happened to you!

 

I won an award for a short film that I wrote and directed. Also, have my own production company.

 


What are you passionate about these days?

 

I'm Passionate about creating stories that are different from the norm of what your use to dealing with a variety of characters that get themselves in situations and I have to find a way to pull them together again.

 


Which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

 

First series “Antonio and Sabrina Struck In Love an amazon best selling series

 


What is something unique/quirky about you?

 

I write film and tv screenplays on top of romance novels.

 


What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

 

I enjoyed the back and forth fight that Sabrina put up with Antonio. She wasn’t falling for the flowers and sweet talk that men tend to do to get the girl.

 


How did you come up with the title of your first novel?

 

A fun fact is that my book is based off my first screenplay I wrote ten years ago.

 


If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?

 

I would like Tika Sumpter to play the lead because she plays many diverse roles and can go from comedy, to drama in a second.

 


Describe your writing style.

What is your favorite part of this book and why?

 

Favorite parts are the scenes with Sabrina and her girlfriends. We all have that friend that will call us out on our shit and get us into situations that sometimes benefit us or we end up in trouble and Sabrina is often in situations because of Janice, but she means well and will fight anybody that hurts her friend.

 


If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be? And what would you do during that day?

 

I would spend time with Janice and we’d go to Happy Hour and gossip about what’s happening in her life and mines. She has a way to make you laugh, cry, and build you back up to be strong and love yourself.

 


If your book had a candle, what scent would it be?

 

 

My book scent would be cotton candy. Sweet with a little kick to leave a lasting taste in the air

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

At the Pleasure of the President
Perfect Gentlemen, Book 5
By Shayla Black and Lexi Blake
Release Date: April 9, 2019

 

 

DESCRIPTION:

 


The thrilling conclusion of the twisting, page-turning Perfect Gentlemen series…

 

Decades ago, ambitious Zack Hayes set his sights on the White House. He’s worked his whole life to become the leader of the free world—attending the right schools, marrying the perfect bride—all to aid his campaign. He didn’t realize someone behind the scenes has been pulling the strings to manipulate Zack and the country he loves into a dangerous position—one he will risk his life to wrench free from. The one thing he can’t risk is Elizabeth Matthews.

 

From the moment she met Zack Hayes, Liz felt the connection. Serving as his campaign manager and then his press secretary, she accepted that her love for him would remain unrequited. Still, she’d thought they were friends, so when he pushed her aside, she felt the stab in her heart. And when she realizes he’s done it to protect her, nothing will stop Liz from standing by his side—not even the men who would use her as a weapon against him.

 

As shocking secrets are revealed, Zack and Liz find succor and passion in each other’s arms. When the ultimate villain shows his face, Zack may have to choose between his country and the woman he loves…

Review! Reunited Lovers (Friendship Chronicles #2) Shelley Munro!

 

 

Hello, Readers! Today I am sharing Reunited Lovers - the 2nd book in the Love and Friendship series by Shelley Munro! Enjoy and don't forget to add Reunited Lovers to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Never look back...right?

 

Julia Maxwell is a seize-the-moment party girl until the night she spends with up-and-coming rocker Ryan Callander. From that moment, she becomes a one-man woman. Pity he hasn’t kept with the program.

 

Tired of the secrets that have kept her out of the press and Ryan’s fans happy, angry with mounting evidence of infidelity, Julia is older, wiser, and determined to divorce his cheatin’ ass.

 

Ryan’s long European tour had more than its share of hard knocks—one of which landed on his head when he was mugged. Divorce papers waiting for him at home are a shock that fills in some of the holes in his sketchy memory. But it could be too late to salvage his marriage.

 

If Ryan thinks flirtatious smiles, seductive touches, and hot-and-heavy kisses are going to smooth things over, Julia’s got a hammer with his name on it. To her surprise, he calls her bluff, determined to rebuild a bright future for both of them. But the past is lurking with some missing pieces that could bring their hearts crashing down.

 

Warning: Contains a pissed ex-stripper turned burlesque dancer, a bunch of nosy friends and a smooth-talking rocker with one thing on his mind. Stripper poles and skimpy costumes are optional.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


This Love and Friendship romance invokes strong emotions in readers as Ryan tries to win back Julia’s heart after disappearing from her life. Julia and Ryan are two strong, convincing characters that captures readers’ hearts and ensure that they want to know every last detail. The relationship is on rocky ground and due to some devastating past events which keeps Julia’s emotional turmoil at an all-time high which in return keeps readers glued to the pages and holding their breath wondering if this couple will achieve that elusive happily ever after.

 

The story is fast paced and full of emotional suspense with friends adding support to each of the characters and when family issues add twist to the story which add to the intense emotions of the story, as well. The interactions between the couple and friends inspire readers with their closeness, loyalty and ability to help out during a crisis and the whole turning around of the family business adds a range of effects to the romance between Julia and Ryan. It is not necessary to read the previous book in this series in order to enjoy reading this one, but this one does make readers curious about it and the next book.

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

 

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world.

Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

 

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.

Blog Tour & Giveaway with Excerpt! Wrong Bed Right Roommate (Accidental Love #1) Rebecca Brooks!

 

http://xpressobooktours.com/

 

Thanks for joining me today, Readers! Today I am celebrating the release of Wrong Bed, Right Roommate – the 1st book in the Accidental Love series by Rebecca Brooks! Enjoy and don’t forget to enter the giveaway!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Wrong Bed, Right Roommate 
by Rebecca Brooks 
Published by: Entangled: Brazen
Publication date: January 14th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

 

Synopsis:

 

It’s not every day you wake up to a stranger getting into your bed.
Only, he isn’t a stranger at all, he’s my best friend’s hot older brother…and apparently my new roommate.

 

Having him in my space, driving me crazy, isn’t a problem at all. Nope.
All I need to do is keep control of the situation…

 

But that’s easier said than done.

 

Shawn Lassiter is the kind of distraction I don’t need.

 

First he accidentally gets into my bed, half-naked, the night before my first day at my new job.

 

Hello, muscles and tattoos!


Then he’s there, in nothing but a towel, making me coffee in the morning.
It’s more than any girl can resist. Right?

 

But Shawn is off-limits, even if his eyes are saying differently.


Years ago, back when I still had my crush, he destroyed friendships with his reckless playboy antics.

 

There’s no way I’m touching those perfectly formed abs now. I don’t care how nice and responsible he’s acting.

 

I don’t want a boyfriend anyway. That’s what my trusty vibrator is for.


I’m the smart girl—the glasses-wearing, book-reading workaholic. I can totally do this.

 

After all, it’s only for two and a half months.


I’ll be on my best behavior…even if Shawn isn’t.

EXCERPT # 2

 

 

Shawn couldn’t want her like this. She knew he didn’t want her like this. He could have had any woman in that club.

 

He’d only danced with her because they were roommates, and he was trying to be nice, and obviously they’d gone home together because they lived together. It wasn’t like there was some kind of arrangement.

 

She should have stayed home tonight, working. She should have said no when he asked if she wanted to go out after the bar. Even after all those mistakes, she should at least pull away now and end this.

 

But Shawn wasn’t stopping things, and she could feel in the heat of his body and the way he held her that he wasn’t going to. She gave herself another heartbeat to decide what to do. If only she could pause time, open up an Excel spreadsheet, and make a pros and cons list to help her choose!

 

Should I make out with my roommate and my best friend’s older brother: Y/N?

 

But that wasn’t the way life worked. She couldn’t just leave him in the living room waiting for her while she went to plan every step of her future. And then it was too soon, it was already happening, he was hooking a finger under her chin and lifting her face to his.

 

The next thing she knew, he was kissing her.

 

And it looked like she’d made her decision, because she was kissing him back.

His lips were soft, but his touch was hard, insistent, as though he needed more of her—more of her body, her breath. His hands ran through her hair, down her back, drawing her closer. She felt like she was melting, sinking right into him, letting him take and take and take.

 

She pulled away, gasping.

 

“We can’t do this,” she said, looking up at him, trying to figure out what the hell was going on.

 

“I know.”

 

“Talia would freak.”

 

“I know.”

 

“And we’re living together.”

 

“I know.”

 

“Then what are we—”

 

He kissed her again. The question fizzled inside her as soon as his lips were on hers, replaced with the champagne bubbles she felt just from being around him. She kissed him back, touching him, tasting him, his mouth warm and searching, her tongue moving with his.

 

“What are we doing?” she finally managed, but it was more like a whimper than the actual question she’d meant.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

 

Hot Justice 
by Lynn Raye Harris 
(Hostile Operations Team #14) 
Publication date: January 15th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

 

Synopsis:

 

 

She's searching for justice. He's searching for peace. 


What they need is each other. They just don't know it yet...

 

Dean "Wolf" Garner is the kind of guy who loves hard and leaves fast. From the moment he rescues reporter Haylee Jamison in the Guatemalan jungle, he can't stop thinking about the dark-haired beauty. His life is too complicated for romantic entanglements though--and not even a woman like Haylee can convince him otherwise. 

 

Haylee wasn't supposed to be in the drug cartel's compound, but she was captured while on a mission of her own: find the trail of fake opioids entering the US and halt the operation. Back home in DC, Haylee can't stop thinking about the gorgeous military operator who rocked her world for one steamy night before leaving. But when she uncovers a conspiracy and finds herself in danger, there's only one man she trusts to keep her safe.

 

It's easy for Wolf to risk his life to protect Haylee and give her the justice she desires. The hard part is taking a chance and admitting what's in his heart before it's too late. 

 

Before he loses the best thing that's ever happened to him.

 

"Lynn Raye Harris is the undisputed Queen of Military Romance because her Hostile Operations Team series just keeps getting better and better." ~ Diane B.

Mexico-Guatamala Border

 


Dean “Wolf” Garner waited for the jump command. He was standing nut-to-butt with his teammates, all of them suited up and ready to go. This was a HAHO jump where they’d fall out of the aircraft one behind the other, open chutes about fifteen seconds in and then coast for forty miles to the landing zone. Cade “Saint” Rogers was team lead and he’d be first out the door. Wolf was second. Echo Squad would stack up behind the leader while they were airborne and follow Saint’s lead as he guided them using GPS and landmarks.


The C-130 Hercules doors were open and they’d switched over to oxygen bottles. HAHO jumps were hell on the body, whether from the minus-zero wind temps, the lack of oxygen and threat of hypoxia, or the incredible snap of the harness when the chute deployed. It was a necessary evil when trying to sneak up on the enemy, though.


They were currently at T-minus two. The PT had cleared them all to jump and the jumpmaster was about to give the signal.


“You bastards stick with me,” Saint said into their earpieces. “Let’s go get those hostages and get the fuck out.”


Seconds later, Wolf was free falling into the sky behind Saint. Wolf deployed his chute, grunting as the harness snapped him hard against the restraints. Jesus. He was carrying a hundred pounds of gear and weaponry, which made the experience even more fun.


He sighted in on Saint and lined up. The rest of the team followed, everyone checking in, and then they were gliding under canopy toward the LZ.


The sun perched in the sky behind them, sinking quickly toward the horizon. Everything below was bathed in golden light that faded into darkness the father east Wolf looked. It was a beautiful sight and he never took it for granted.


The terrain here was mountainous and green and a river cut through the landscape, marking the border. This was the area where the Mexican cartels got their rocket-propelled grenades and grenade launchers as well as other military-grade equipment they used as they fought each other for territory. It’d be fine if all they did was kill each other, but unfortunately civilians often got caught in the crossfire.


Sometimes those civilians were American, and sometimes they were held for ransom. Like now. A group of dentists and opticians on a mission to provide services to an impoverished village had been swept up in the raid and HOT had been tasked with getting them out.


It took twenty minutes, but the team touched down and shrugged out of their chutes. They buried them, along with the special jumpsuits and oxygen canisters. Then they slung their M4 rifles across their chests and started the trek toward the camp where the cartel was holding the hostages.


HOT had pictures of the camp from drone photography and they knew the layout and the approximate number of people who guarded it. Echo Squad wasn’t just there to extract hostages—they were also there to take out the cartel members who were in the camp. At last count, that had been twenty.


Wolf didn’t feel sorry for the men. They were rough, evil, nasty men who terrorized innocent civilians. They killed indiscriminately, and they left messages in the form of headless bodies dangling from bridges and trees.


No, Wolf had no problem with killing them. It took Echo another forty minutes to reach the camp. It was dark by then, and the cartel men were drinking. The hostages were nowhere to be seen, but HOT knew they were being held in a rough concrete structure in the center of the camp. Ten men and women from somewhere in Alabama, on a church mission to help the poor. They were no doubt terrified and probably dehydrated and hungry.


“Like we planned it,” Saint said into their earpieces. The team split up and fanned out around the camp. Wolf and Noah “Easy” Cross slipped silently toward their target. They waited for the signal, then glided toward the men they’d marked. A quick slip of the knife and two cartel members would never harm anyone again.


A man emerged from the building where the hostages were, dragging a woman with him. She was small and dark-haired and she fought mightily. Wolf stiffened as the man thrust her against the side of the building and dropped his mouth to her neck. She wrenched her head to the side and tried to hit him but he caught her wrist and pinned her to the wall.


Wolf signaled Easy that this one was his. Easy nodded, lifting his rifle to provide covering fire if necessary as Wolf crossed the distance. The cartel members were falling quickly as his teammates took them out. Soon, Echo would converge on the building.


The woman was fighting hard when Wolf slipped up behind the man. Before Wolf could grab him, the man grunted and stumbled backward. His hands dropped to his crotch and Wolf nearly laughed. Smart girl. Brave girl.


He yanked the man back and stabbed him in the kidney, dropping him to the ground. The woman’s dark eyes widened. She was wearing a stained white button-down shirt that had been torn open and jeans with tennis shoes. Her black hair was wild and her skin was golden, and his heart thumped once before he clamped down on the reaction.


“You’re American?” she asked in a soft southern accent. “You’ve come to rescue us?”


“Yes,” he told her, turning to place her behind him as he scanned the camp for any stragglers. Someone shouted in the distance and a shot rang out.


“Got him,” Jax “Gem” Stone said in Wolf’s ear. “Fucker.”


“Status,” Saint ordered.


“All clear,” Malcolm “Mal” McCoy replied. The rest of Echo Squad followed suit.
“Let’s get the hostages,” Saint said.


Wolf turned back to the girl, knowing that Easy had his back and that his teammates were converging on the building to extract the hostages. “You okay?” he asked, dropping his gaze over her body, back up to her eyes. Dark, fiery eyes.

Angry eyes.


She lifted her chin as she pulled her shirt together. “Yes. Fine.”


“What’s your name?”


“What’s yours?” she shot back.


Wolf grinned. “Wolf.”


She blinked. “Is that really your name?”


“No, but I like it better than my real name. Which is Dean, by the way.”


“Dean.” She paused for a moment. Then she thrust out her hand. “I’m Haylee. Pleased to meet you.”


He took her hand. A sizzle of something electric rolled through him. “You always so polite in dangerous situations?”


She grinned, and his heart thumped again. “I don’t know. This is my first kidnapping.”
