About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

Blurb
Craft beer
and the sexy men who brew it.
A faceless
name. That’s all she was when I agreed to play a part in deceiving her. But

We met. And
all I wanted from her was a dirty weekend . . . until that wasn’t enough and I
longed for so much more.
Lawrence
Thorn suddenly means the world to me. And that’s a problem. She’s my business

Lovibond Brewery. But I don’t care.
I yearn for
her skin against mine.
I crave her
smell on my body.
I want to
make her laugh and then hear her moan my name.
And she
does for a brief moment in time.
But
Lawrence wants more than I’m able to give. And it’s a damn shame because
there’s no one on earth I want more than her.

Excerpt
Lawrence
Thorn
My eyes
follow Brou as he leaves the bench and walks away. Sheez. His ass looks great in those jeans. And it looks pretty great
not in those jeans too.
I can’t
believe I had my hand wrapped around his cock.
I can’t
believe he came in my hand.
I can’t
believe he stood in front of me naked from the waist down.
I can’t
believe he touched me with his fingers between my legs and then sucked them. Fuck. That was hot.
No one has
ever made me come so hard in all my life. Brou
gives quality orgasms. I can’t wait to have another.

Blurb

 

Craft beer and the sexy men who brew it.
A beautiful neighbor. A complete stranger. That’s all she was when I
moved in next door.
Adelyn Maxwell is my neighbor but she’s no girl next door. The more I
come to know her, the more I discover she’s a good girl with a lovely dark
side. And maybe I don’t want her to stay on her side of the fence.
I want to disturb the rhythm of her pulse.
I want to see the way her hair spills on the bed when she lies beneath
me.
I want her to teach me the dirty pretty things she desires behind closed
doors. And she does.
But mostly I want to leave my mark on the most intimate, untouched part
of her body. Her heart.
A seemingly insignificant intersection of our lives neither of us recalls
suddenly becomes a pivotal moment in our future. We aren’t strangers at all. And
our paths aren’t crossing for the first time.
These twists and turns of fate will become one of two things: a wrecking
ball to tear us apart or the connection to bond us together forever.

Excerpt
Oliver
Thorn’s POV from Chapter 6
“Control.
And how I feel when you exert your strength over me. Domination. Power.
Control. All of it turns me the fuck on.”
“Why?”
“There’s
something primal and exhilarating about a man who takes complete control in the
bedroom. That’s what it’s about for me. I want to feel desire. Real
desire. I need a man who will grab me and make me feel small and vulnerable and
feminine. Without hurting me.”
She
releases my hands and sits upright, still mounted on top of me. “Outside of the
bedroom, it’s all a level playing field. I’m an independent woman, and I
control everything in my life. But in the bedroom . . . I want to be controlled
by a strong man.”
“And
choked.”
“I need an
alpha male. I crave the dominance and show of strength he has over me.” She
reaches for my hands and intertwines our fingers. “You’re the first man I’ve
trusted in years. I couldn’t have let anyone else put their hands on me that
way. It had to be you.” She releases my hands and leans over me, propping on
her lower arms, but her hands grasp my face. She presses a soft, closemouthed
kiss on my lips. “Only you, Thorn.”
She wants
an alpha. A controller. A choker.
God help
me, I like what I just did to her. I want to do it again. And that’s totally
fucked up.
I spent my
childhood being controlled, dominated, choked. What kind of person does it make
me if I do those things to her? Even if it’s what she wants?
“I can’t,
Max.”
She presses
her forehead to mine. “You can. You did.” I did. And it was wrong.
So.
Fucking. Wrong.
“But not
again.”
“I saw your
face. You liked my submission. You liked putting your hand on me like that. You
weren’t repulsed. And in those few moments when you held my life in your hands,
I belonged to you. I knew it. You knew it. And you liked it.”

One heinous tragedy changed my entire family forever.

Stay away from crowds. 
Never fall in love.

something dark underneath her bright smile. 
Unable to resist the desire toward her, I break my rules
giving her all of me while expecting all of her.

Born on the mystical day of October 30th in the not so
mystical lands of Mexico City, Claudia grew up with a childhood that resembled

of her techie husband—a.k.a. the U.S.—with their offspring to start a new
adventure. 
She now lives in Colorado working for a small IT company,
managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two
daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he’s the boss of the house.
To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting
through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the
last
threads of sanity intact.

Cover Reveal: Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward

We are excited to bring you the upcoming standalone from New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author Penelope Ward.

DRUNK DIAL will release on AUGUST 21!

 

 

Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs
Cover Model: Vadim Ivanov
Cover Photography: Kevin Roldan

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

About HARD WOOD:

Women often say a good man is hard to find. And a hard man is even better.

That’s why I’m quite a catch— good, hard, loaded, and wait for it…I’m ready to settle down too. But the woman I want to pitch my tent with is precisely the one I need to stay far away from.

After that fantastic night with Mia Summers, I’m ready to give her many more. But there’s a hitch in my plans — she just hired my company. If there’s one thing I’m committed to, it’s running a squeaky clean adventure tour business. One of the iron-clad rules?

Don’t screw your customers.

I can follow my own guidelines. After all, it’s only a week-long trip with Mia and her employees over the trails and down the hills I guide them on. I can obey the rules—even if it’s hard in the woods.

I’m about to give myself a badge of honor when the storm of the century hits, sending everyone else running for cover, but us—my biggest temptation and me, alone for a long weekend. You don’t screw the client, especially when you’re already in love with her . . .

But what’s a guy to do when she’s so hard to resist?

New Release + 6 Star Review + 2017 Favorite: Atheist Who Kneel And Pray by Tarryn Fisher

SURPRISE! #AWKAP is LIVE!!! Who’s ready for Yara and David?
Available NOW on

Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon AU | Amazon CA | iTunes | B&N

Atheists Who Kneel And Pray

By Tarryn Fisher

Buy: Amazon

Yara Phillips is a wandering muse.

She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long.

David Lisey is in need of a muse.

A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he’s found what he’s been looking for.

Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential:

A broken heart.

David’s religion is love.

Yara’s religion is heartache.

Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice.

 

Yara’s Yesterday Spotify List:

https://open.spotify.com/user/1226318453/playlist/6h5mCg008D4VxjkWuudzQ7

 

Dear Yara,

The bands in London, November 12th. Want to catch up?

David

So casual. So nonchalant. You’d think we were only acquaintances, that we’d once sipped a couple of beers together instead of tattooing love on our skin and reciting marriage vows. I read the e-mail again and analyze the shit out of it. How can I not? I count out the words: thirteen. The punctuation: four. His name, my name. A flippant, casual turn of phrase: catch up. In the end, there’s only so much psychoanalyzing you can do to a thirteen-word e-mail. I move on with my life, feeling rather pathetic. But not before I e-mail him back. And okay, sure, I don’t move on with my life. What does that even entail? Forgetting? Forgiving? Being happy? Besides, I know what he wants to talk about. I know why he’s coming.

Hi David,

Yeah, sounds good. Let me know when and where.

Yara

My e-mail is a word shorter.

I’m that petty.

Robin’s Review

With the words of her new contemporary romance, author Tarryn Fisher swept me to the heights of relationship bliss, then lulled me into a fear of impending doom. She shattered my lovesick heart, but then healed it and made me whole again. Right alongside the primary characters, I experienced ALL of the emotions in what may be one of the best romance novels of 2017 – Atheists Who Kneel and Pray!

Hailing from London, England, Yara Phillips has become a drifter. Every few months, she travels from one U.S. city to the next for a fresh start. David Lisey spots her through the front window of The Jane in Seattle, Washington, where she works as a bartender. And that’s when he knows. The lead singer of Lazarus Come Forth has found his muse. From the moment David pulls a splinter out of her thumb, he sparks her interest. Yara might be willing to be his muse, but at what cost?

Reminiscent of Caleb and Olivia from her first novel, The Opportunist, Tarryn Fisher made me fall in love HARD with David and Yara! David’s pursuit of Yara is delightful! Their conversations and flirting are endearing. The chemistry between them is palpable. Their connection is undeniable. Their love story is a journey, an experience which will cause them both to grow as individuals.

Tarryn Fisher’s writing is exemplary. She is deeply detailed in her descriptions of the sights and locations of her hometown. The businesses, landmarks and people of Seattle, London and Paris come alive through her words. Colors, buildings, and scenes were painted as visuals in my imagination as I turned the pages of the book. With some of the best descriptive writing that I’ve ever read, the whole feel of Atheists Who Kneel and Pray lures me to the Pacific Northwest.

Tarryn Fisher is skilled at drawing emotions and feelings out of her readers. You’ll find this especially true with her manuscript of Atheists Who Kneel and Pray. I encountered a broad spectrum of emotions while reading this novel, ranging from joyful exhilaration to feeling a great sense of loss. Fisher’s writing is a form of art. In this story, you’ll find it meticulous and poetic, vibrant and evocative.

Every once and a while, you come across a book that touches your heart in ways you can’t explain. It’s just special. For me, that book is Atheists Who Kneel and Pray, and I can’t wait to find the time to read it again! I’m honored to give Tarryn Fisher a 6-star review and will be adding this book to my list of 2017 favorites!

About the Book(1)

EJFracturedLoveBookCover6x9_MEDIUMSynopsis

I was sixteen when he came to our house. Landon Jones, a boy with nothing, from nowhere. He had cinnamon hair and blue eyes—light blue, just like mine. When we went out as a family with my foster brother, people asked if Landon was my twin. He wasn’t. That year, we found out how much he wasn’t. When my parents caught us, they threw Landon out like trash.

 

Now I’m twenty-nine, a soon-to-be surgeon, like my mom and dad. I know residency is going to kick my ass, but I had no idea that it would rip my heart out, too. Not until I see him—Dr. Jones.

A standalone that is part of the Off-Limits Romance collection.

Michel’s Review

The one thing I have come to realize is when I open an Ella James novel to expect the unexpected.  Ella James has a gift of creating complex twists in what should be a relatively simple romance novel.  She adds layers upon layers to the story and creates characters that are less than perfect but at the same time humanly endearing.  Their flaws are monumental and their strengths are admirable.  What’s in the middle is their muddied relationship, past and present, that evolves into an unforgettable love story that was earned through surviving the storm called life.

Evie and Landon were doomed from the beginning.  He was a foster child taken in by her loving but strict parents.  The family loved Landon and wanted the best for his future.  They wanted to give him a stable home and a family he could count on.  What they didn’t factor in is a budding relationship between two naive sixteen year old kids who were driven by their hormones as well as their hearts.  The only thing they could do was send Landon back to the system until both kids could mature and reach their future potential.  What they couldn’t foresee is the ramifications of their actions changing the course of both kids future.  Both Evie and Landon spent over ten years in their own personal hells but never forgot each other.  The problem was what happened in those ten years could never be undone or changed.  They both ended up reaching their academic potential and had bright futures as doctors but were still very damaged individuals.  Working together as interns in one of the best neurosurgery hospitals is a challenge.  Denying their feelings for one another was a hopeless endeavor.  Endangering their careers was inevitable.  Revealing their secrets is unthinkable because those secrets could tear them apart forever. Secrets can only be hidden for so long and the revelations are beyond devastating.

Two teenage hearts fell hopelessly in love.  Two adult hearts are still hopelessly in love.  The key word is hopeless.  Evie and Landon have to choose between finally letting go of each other or letting go of the past and hanging onto each other for life.

Ella James once again delivered an emotional romance that touches the readers hearts.

I highly recommend reading Fractured Love by Ella James.
