SYNOPSIS

To get what he wants, he’ll have to play a game of dirty pool.

Michel Marcello never wanted to be a mafioso like every other man in his family—he wanted to be more. That doesn’t mean he’s unfamiliar with the life, or that he can’t hold his own against other made men.

They forgot where he came from …

His chance encounter with the fiery and beautiful daughter of Detroit’s most notorious Irish mob boss stokes flames beyond the ones that ignite between Michel and Gabbie Casey. Rivals shouldn’t mix, but these opposites have never been more attracted, either.

The lines between family loyalty, their duties, and responsibility begin to blur.

Love ruins all.

But these two aren’t the only ones playing this game, and it just became far more dangerous to get out alive.

*

Dirty Pool is a standalone romantic suspense.

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT

“What good would it do me to tell you to stay away from the lad, hmm?” her father demanded sharply. “I think I have said more than enough over the last several months since you’ve run around with the prick that it’s clear I don’t approve. But whatever it is, you’re determined to see it through, so I might as well let you get it out of your system now before reality comes to wake you up.”

“What does that even mean?”

Charles scrubbed a hand down his face. “You’ll learn in time. As I intend.”

“I—”

“And as for that Italian fecker,” her father continued, “he needs to pick a side, Gabbie. If he wants to entertain the Italians in the daytime, and then shift with my daughter in the shadows when no one is looking, then the man can’t be trusted, can he? A lad like that … his mind is too sharp, lass. They had to know what he was doing, and then he can decide what he really wants to do. I know where he comes from, and you have to watch him like it, too. I need him to know that I am aware of his choices, and he has others to consider now.”

“Are you giving him the ultimatum, then? Them, or us?”

Charles arched a brow. “It isn’t that complicated, sweetheart. You don’t have to understand when all I want you to do is follow along.”

Wasn’t it that complicated?

She thought so.

“Follow along with what?”

Charles waved a hand at her, and she knew what that meant without him telling her. A dismissal. He was done with their discussion, and she was quite aware how that worked with her father. Once he was done, he was finished. No amount of her prodding or pressing would get more from him.

“I have men to deal with,” he told her. “And you haven’t checked your sugars since this afternoon. Go do that now.”

“My sugars are fine!”

Do it.”

She wasn’t a child.

She still felt like it sometimes.

Charles gestured at the group of lads that had attended the meeting, too, and were now waiting in the hallway just beyond Gabbie. Without waiting for her to really move out of their way, they pressed past her in the tight quarters, not even bothering to excuse themselves or pass her a second glance.

She wasn’t important.

Dismissed.

“Da—”

“Go, but not too far because I expect to speak with you again later,” her father ordered one last time. Then, to the men in the office, he added, “They never intended to settle, lads. That much is clear. We won’t act … yet. We’ll wait and see what they do first, aye, and then we’ll make the hard choices.”

Charles shut the door in Gabbie’s face, essentially leaving her alone in the hallway. It was amazing to her how she could feel so many things all at once. Anger warred with her disbelief and astonishment. Panic swelled in her heart, swirling with anxiety and sadness.

Did it really have to be like this?

What did that mean for her?

For Michel?

For them?

She didn’t know, and she didn’t like it.

The Winter Court By Amelia Hutchins!

Length: 351 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: purchased

Synopsis

Icelyn was given to the Horde to pay a tithe owed to them by her court. She had no plan of letting them claim her or enter her court. One arrow should have ended it, only it didn’t stop anything.

Instead, she’s now prisoner to the broody, cocky, self-absorbed prince that makes her want things she’s never thought possible. Will she be able to resist him and save her court from the horrors that the Horde has planned? Sinjinn had a mission: Get Cailean to the Winter Court to claim his bride.

It should have been simple. Instead, he gets taken down by a wisp of a woman who stares at him through the clearest blue eyes he’s ever seen before. The taste of her lips sends his world teetering on devastation. She’s his prisoner, so why shouldn’t he claim her as his?

Because she’s his brother’s bride.

Because it wasn’t complicated enough, right?

One arrow will change the destiny of three lives forever. Will they be able to escape the blood oath, or will he lose her to a brother who doesn’t even want her? New allies are being forged, new enemies emerge, and no one is safe within the realm of Faery anymore.

Not a reverse harem, or a love triangle.

Can be read as a stand alone

My thoughts 💭

Another amazing story by Amelia! I absolutely loved Icelyn and Sinjinn! The chemistry was amazing! I started off not really liking Sinjinn but his love for Icelyn had me loving him by the end! I can’t wait until the next book!

Series: Ensenada Heat #2 
Release Date: March 21st

She was meant to be mine—I knew it the moment we met. Too bad I’m about to kidnap her.

Mason Hughes
As a decorated CIA agent, I know better than to kidnap a former colleague’s sister and hold her hostage on a ship in the middle of the ocean. The agency tends to frown on that sort of behavior. But desperate times call for desperate measures; I have my reasons, and they’re good ones. I’ll be forgiven with a slap to the wrist—at least for that part of the mission.
Until I tie Reagan Jones up and can’t resist her when she presses her tight little body against mine. That’s probably not so forgivable.
Then there’s the issue of falling in love with her and refusing to let her go once the mission is over. Definitely not forgivable.
I have no idea what I’m thinking—we can’t be together; it’s not safe for her. I’m a spy, and she’s a feisty art instructor from Fargo. Not exactly the perfect match. 
Or is it?






Tess Summers is a former businesswoman and teacher who always loved writing but never seemed to have time to sit down and write a short story, let alone a novel. Now battling MS, her life changed dramatically, and she has finally slowed down enough to start writing all the stories she’d been wanting to tell, including the fun and sexy ones!
 Married over twenty years with three grown children, Tess is a former dog foster mom who ended up failing and adopting them instead. She and her husband (and their six dogs) split their time between the desert of Arizona and the lakes of Michigan so she’s always in a climate that’s not too hot and not too cold, but just right!






Release Blitz: All The Time Wasted by Michelle Heard



Title: All The Wasted Time 
Author: Michelle Heard 
Genre: Suspense Romance 
Series: The Southern Heroes #4 


Add on Goodreads 







Hiding in Ocean’s Isle after being suspended from the force for two months, my hot, feisty, neighbor is the last person I should be interested in.
But the next thing I know, we keep running into each other, which lead to some pretty intense sexually-loaded moments.
I’m not supposed to fall for her, especially knowing I’ll be going home in a week to face the mess I left behind. It’s just supposed to be a mind-blowing one-night stand.
Then I walk into the precinct, and I meet the new psychologist. I sure as hell didn’t see it coming, and now I have to bare my soul to the woman who should’ve remained a fantasy.
Keeping her at a distance is next to impossible, but knowing her life might be in danger if I give into the growing attraction between us, I have no choice but to keep pretending to be the playboy joker everyone thinks I am.
But will I be able to keep resisting the powerful pull between us?
Will I be able to hide her from the man who swore to destroy my life the way I destroyed his?
Will I ever survive the consequences of that fatal night?

Tour: Contempt by Bethany-Kris!

CONTEMPT

by Bethany-Kris
Renzo + Lucia, #3
Publication Date: March 4, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance

AVAILABLE NOW!

SYNOPSIS

How much is too much?

Five years—that was the deal. Renzo Zulla gave up five years of his life to repay a debt to an organization that only wanted to break him before they could make him. Their way, their rules. He doesn’t move without their okay, even if his latest job puts him right in front of her. But the five years are almost up, and he knows exactly where he’s going first.

Love doesn’t follow rules …

Heartbroken and alone—that’s how she survives. Lucia Marcello is alive, but a part of her still feels dead without him. She’s spent far too much time running away from her past and the pain she constantly holds tight because it’s easier than hating the people who caused it. But life has a way of bringing you back when your heart never will.

Love doesn’t fade …

But time means nothing, and forever might be only an illusion for them. Because where fate doesn’t step in, reality does. If hate is a game you play with your heart, and contempt is the game you play with your mind … where does that leave love?

Vendettas don’t care about love.

It’s in God’s hands now.

Note: CONTEMPT is the final book in a three-book

Trilogy following the same couple.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This trilogy is a must read for mafia romance lovers! It was everything! Renzo and Lucia’s are finally reunited and all the feels are still there. They both are still upset with everyone but I’m glad they were able to get past their hurt and mend fences to be one happy family that made me cry happy tears! Renzo makes everything seem so simple. They’re still just Renzo and Lucia no matter what. Ride or die! I definitely recommend this wonderfully written story!
