GIVEAWAY! DEAL BREAKER by Tara Leigh

Three cheers for the release of Tara Leigh’s DEAL BREAKER! Follow the tour as we share reviews, excerpts and get readers take on the swoon-worthy Nash Knight! Plus enter to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card and three runner-up’s will win a digital copy of book one in the Billionaire Bosses series, PENTHOUSE PLAYER.

Nash is Wall Street, Nixie is Williamsburg. In DEAL BREAKER, the next standalone installment of Tara Leigh’s Billionaire Bosses series, these two opposites definitely attract. When lust becomes love, will their untamed emotions be a deal breaker? Fans of Keeland and Ward’s STUCK UP SUIT and Lauren Blakely’s MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY will devour this smart and steamy marriage of convenience romance. 

Nixie Rowland is having a bad day. Rushing home to drown her sorrows in ice cream and reality television, she decides to take a shortcut to the subway where things take a turn for the worst. But Nixie’s bad luck doesn’t end there—the white knight who comes to her rescue is none other than the Dark Knight of Wall Street, a cocky Manhattan mogul whose ego barely fits inside his penthouse. To her horror, Nixie discovers the sizzling attraction between them is off the charts, and rising fast. Spending the night in his bed does nothing to lower the heat… And everything to set her heart on fire.

Nash Knight doesn’t have room in his life, or his heart, for anything beyond one-night stands or casual flings. And he certainly doesn’t make a habit of rescuing damsels in distress. Except that this particular damsel slips beneath his armor, the vulnerability she covers with a false show of bravado hitting him somewhere deep. Nixie is everything he never wanted… And exactly what he needs.

With Nixie on the run from a controlling ex, and Nash trying to salvage a business deal at risk because his conquests in the bedroom are overshadowing his wins in the boardroom, there’s one simple solution for them both: a marriage in name only. But when lust becomes love, will their untamed emotions be a deal breaker?

WOLF HOLLOW by Nikki JeffordWolf Hollow by Nikki Jefford
Series: Wolf Hollow Shifters #1
Published by Self Published Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Suspense


A REBELLIOUS OUTCAST
Cocky. Coy. Wolf shifter. Tabor is the hollow’s only half-breed, scorned and forbidden to use his powers. Constantly overlooked despite his strengths, Tabor believes Sasha is as shortsighted as the rest of the pack until she proves there’s more to her than a blindly obedient lapdog to the council.

A DUTIFUL PUREBLOOD
Spirited, stubborn, and deeply loyal, Sasha feels the pressure from her pack to claim another pureblood, yet no one is brazen enough to defy the elders and toy with her . . . no one besides a sexy, hotheaded half-breed.

AN ATTRACTION THAT THREATENS THE FUTURE OF THE PACK
Bewildered by the deceptively proud and surprisingly sensual Sasha, Tabor would risk everything to claim her. Despite her vanishing bloodline, Sasha can’t resist the charismatic half-breed even as predators threaten their pack and the elders pressure her to breed with a pureblood.

In a fantastical post-apocalyptic world, where only the strongest survive, sometimes trusting the heart is the bravest act of all.

Author Nikki Jefford takes readers into a post-apocalyptic paranormal world featuring sexy shifters, heady emotion and lots of pack politics.  Wolf Hollow introduces readers to Tabor the cocky outcast with a chip on his shoulder and Sasha a leader in the making and only pack pureblood shifter.

As the last remaining pureblood Sasha is a member of the packs’ governing council.  She’s expected to be a great leader and most importantly procreate with a respectable pureblood from another pack to strengthen the Wolf Hollow Shifters.  Sasha wants to become a great leader like her parents but she doesn’t appreciate the pressure to mate with a pureblood from members of the council and the pack.  When she begins to have feelings for Tabor the packs half breed outcast her heart becomes divided between duty and love.

Tabor knows exactly how the pack feels about his other half.  Tabor is part wolf and part wizard. He knows the council will never approve his and Sasha’s mating but he’s determined to find a way to be with the woman he loves.

Wolf Hollow is an interesting read.  Ms Jefford does a good job of creating this post-apocalyptic world where the wolves are dominant but secluded,  humans are the enemy, and evil lurks around every corner.  I liked both Sasha and Tabor. They definitely get off to a rocky start but their chemistry heats up fast. Wolf Hollow has plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. I like the fact that Wolf Hollow is unpredictable. I was never quite sure what was going to happen next.

THE BILLIONAIRES: THE STEPBROTHERS by Calista FoxThe Billionaires: The Stepbrothers by Calista Fox
Series: Lover's Triangle
Published by St. Martin's Press Genres: Contemporary, Erotic, Menage


 

Scarlet Drake is an insurance fraud investigator on the hunt for a missing art collection.  Everyone is a suspect including the victims’ sons.

Michael Vandenburg, known as the Wolf of Wall Street in business circles, he has no time to deal with the fraud investigator stalking him for an interview. However, she leaves him little choice and once he meets Scarlet he’s intrigued and eager to learn more about her.

Sam Reed left the high society world his family resides in after a devastating heartbreak.  He now lives in Montana working with horses.  When Scarlet crashes into his life with questions about his mother’s missing art Sam is caught off guard by his desire for her.

A powerful connection forms immediately between Michael, Scarlet and Sam but can they figure out a way to make the connection last when they live thousands of miles apart? Oh and there’s still that little fact that Scarlet is on the hunt for the missing art collection and someone out there will stop at nothing to make sure she doesn’t find the culprit.

The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers is a feast of erotic proportion with the emotion to match.

The connection between Scarlet and Michael and then Scarlet and Sam are swift and magnetic.  While the sex was great as it usually is in Ms. Fox’s writing I really enjoyed the mystery surrounding the missing artwork and the depth of emotion in Sam’s personal history.  Sam’s story yanks on the heartstrings! I love him!

I love the fact that Scarlet doesn’t let her feelings change how she does her job.  She’s persistent even when she may hurt herself in the long run.  Scarlet’s job is intriguing and brings thrilling suspense to the story.  The Billionaires: Stepbrothers is an excellent addition to the Lover’s Triangle series!

THE BIG, BAD BILLIONAIRE by Jackie AshendenThe Big, Bad Billionaire by Jackie Ashenden
Series: DeSantis Brothers
Published by Swerve Genres: Contemporary, Erotic


 

Billionaire CEO Rafe DeSantis is taking want he wants and he wants Ms. Ella Hart.  Rafe has a few anger issues. He was sent away when he was young because his parents couldn’t be bothered with him.  He left one crappy situation and landed in a worse one.  He’s all grown up and back for revenge.

Ella Hart hasn’t had the easiest life.  She lost both her parents within months of each other, became the ward of the DeSantis family and went to live with her grandmother.  She threw herself into her passion for dance.  Now she wants to attend a summer dance program in Europe but to get the funds for the trip she must go through her guardian.  Ella soon finds that Rafe DeSantis is now her guardian and he has specific requirements before he will release the money to her.

Rafe has Ella where he’s always wanted her but will his plan to seduce her end the way he’s always dreamed, or will the big bad wolf end up all alone?

Author Jackie Ashenden’s reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood is not your average fairytale.  The Big, Bad Billionaire is sexy in the sweetest of ways. Initially, I was afraid that Rafe was going to be a complete ass.  He’s an aggressive alpha with a hankering for revenge.  It soon becomes clear that Rafe’s feelings for Ella are quite intense.  He doesn’t handle his feelings like most would.  Most would ask the girl they are attracted to out on a date but Rafe decides to use extortion instead.

Ella is a quiet and reserved young woman trying to figure out life.  She is taken aback by Rafe’s proposal and the feelings he provokes within her.  It’s easy to feel deeply for both lonely characters.  The attraction between them is sensual and titillating and the plot is swift and enthralling.  The Big, Bad Billionaire is one fairytale you don’t want to miss. Prepare to be hot and bothered by one sexy alpha and the innocent little red riding hood in The Big, Bad Billionaire.

Undercover Attraction Excerpt

Copyright © 2017 Katee Robert

“Let’s get one thing clear—”

One thing? I have a goddamn list.”

He bracketed her throat, putting just enough pressure there to stop her words. “Did you change your mind?”

She narrowed her eyes but didn’t try to pretend she had no idea what he was talking about. “You play your game your way. I’ll play it mine.”

Disobedient and willful to the very end. He couldn’t decide if she was trying to provoke a response or if she was just that opposed to being locked down in any way. In the end, it didn’t matter. “I should bend you over this counter and fuck you into submission.”

“Don’t think for a second it would work.” Charlie rolled her eyes. “And beyond that, we’re already going to be late, so unless you’re looking for a quickie, fucking me in any way is out of the question.”

The irrational side of him, which always seemed to come into play around her, rose to demand he throw caution to the wind and prove her wrong. He reined it in, but only barely. Every time she pushed him, intentionally or not, he slid a little closer to the edge. It was only a matter of time before he went over—and took her with him.

Aiden let go of her and stepped back. He didn’t like the confusion on her face—or the flicker of hurt that rose as he moved to the dresser across the room. For all her spikes, there was something fragile about Charlie, and he’d have to be a special kind of bastard to want to shatter her, no matter who her father was.

He opened the drawer at the bottom that had been empty until a week ago. “Take off your panties.”

“I’m sorry, what?”

He gave her a look. “You heard me.”

“I’m waiting for you to explain.”

Aiden shook his head slowly. “There aren’t two separate games—there’s only my game. Either play along or deal with the consequences.” He picked an item out of the drawer and held it up. “Here’s your first punishment.”

“I didn’t do anything wrong.” But her eyes lit with interest at the small blue vibe in his hand.

He motioned her forward, giving her plenty of time to tell him to go to hell.

But she didn’t.

Charlie moved to stand directly in front of him. He lifted her dress to the tops of her thighs, bunching the shimmering fabric. “Hold this,” he ordered.

“You are aggravating in the extreme.”

“So I’ve been told.” He pulled her panties down to her thighs. It was tempting to kiss her there, but he forced himself to stay on task. Aiden held the small vibe against her clit as he shifted the lace back into place. It took a few seconds to maneuver it to exactly where he wanted, but then he sat back on his heels. “You can let go now.”

“This is an important night, Aiden.” She shifted, a frown on her face. “We don’t have time for your sex games to distract me.”

He pulled out his phone and brought up the app he’d downloaded when he bought the sex toy. A flick of his finger and her entire body tensed. Aiden didn’t bother to hide his satisfied smile. It fell away when he touched his pocket and the little box it held. “One more thing.”

“I swear to God, I draw the line at anal plugs, so don’t even think about it.”

That surprised a laugh out of him. What surprised him even more was how good it felt. When was the last time he’d laughed freely in a way that wasn’t calculated?

Aiden couldn’t remember.

He stood and pulled out the ring box. “I’d go down on one knee, but that isn’t the kind of relationship we have.”

“No, it’s not.” She looked a little sick, but she held out her hand so he could slide the ring onto it. “Aiden, it’s beautiful.”

“It was my grandmother’s.” It had taken some shady work to figure out Charlie’s ring size after he’d first met her, so that he could get the ring resized. He hadn’t told anyone about it. Though he’d been as sure of her as he could be of a near-stranger, he hadn’t wanted to admit the lengths he’d gone through, in case things didn’t pan out.

If anything, she looked even more horrified. “I can’t wear your grandmother’s ring. It’s not right.”

“You have to. As oldest son and heir, that ring rightfully belongs to my future wife. It would be more than a little suspicious if I didn’t give it to you.”

She touched the massive diamond. It was in the same setting as when his grandfather had proposed, little rubies and garnets surrounding the diamond, to represent colors in the O’Malley crest.

It felt a whole lot like he’d just branded Charlie.

It didn’t bother him nearly as much as it should.

 

Praise for UNDERCOVER ATTRACTION

 

“Robert (Forbidden Promises) combines strong chemistry, snappy plotting, and imperfect yet appealing characters in her fifth O’Malley contemporary.”—Publishers Weekly on UNDERCOVER ATTRACTION

 

“Imagine the erotic sensibility of Red Shoe Diaries expertly fused with the ruthless power struggles that fueled The Sopranos and you have some idea of the flavor of Robert’s RITA–nominated O’Malleys series. In the fifth installment, she doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to the searing sensuality of the love scenes or the brutal danger propelling the plot, thus delivering exactly the kind of intense love story her readers crave.”—Booklist on UNDERCOVER ATTRACTION

THE MARRIAGE CONTRACT

UNDERCOVER ATTRACTION

THE BASTARD’S BARGAIN (Coming soon!)

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it ‘a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension.”  When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
