Blog Tour: Shane by Jo Raven



Title: Shane ( Damage Control 4 )
Author: Jo Raven 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Photographer: Andrei Vishnyakov
Model: Umid







Once upon a time, my life was good. I had a family, I had a girlfriend, and hopes for the future. That was long ago, but I remember it. A hazy dream of what could have been.
That’s gone now. I lost it all. Life fucked me over, and now I’m scared of my own damn shadow. 
I’m training to be a tattoo artist, but I bet I’m not good enough. I have a roof over my head, but every morning I’m scared shitless that I’ll find myself on the street again – or worse, back in prison. 
And every time a pretty girl looks at me, every single fucking time, I know I can’t be with her. Not only because she’ll find out I’m an ex-con and run the other way, no. It’s more than that. I just can’t. The thought of anyone touching me, the thought of getting aroused from that touch brings back every damn nightmare from my past to swallow me whole.
Can’t fucking do it. 
Not even if it’s the prettiest girl on earth – Cassie. With her long blond hair and her pretty tits, her short skirts and high heels, she’s all my fantasies rolled into one. See, the fact she kissed one of my buddies? That’s good. The fact she looks at me like I’m a bug under her shoe? Even better.
Because it means she’s not interested in getting hot and sweaty with me, and that I can keep living that fantasy.
The fantasy that she wants to be with me as much as I want to be with her – even though I know it will never happen.

Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.
*Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature readers only. Not intended for young readers.*

SHANE is book 4 in the series Damage Control - a series set in the same world as Inked Brotherhood. The boys of Damage Control were taken in by Zane Madden and Rafe Vestri and offered apprenticeship and work in the tattoo shop Damage Control.
Next in the Damage Control series: OCEAN (Damage Control 5)




Shane is holding me, his large, callused hands on my cheeks, and then his mouth descends on mine, and he’s kissing me. His mouth is hard and hot, tasting of whisky and fire, and I’m lost against him.
He just holds me close, moving his mouth over mine. He groans when I lick his lips, letting me in. His tongue tangles with mine, and the fire spills from my mouth to my belly, setting me alight. He kisses like someone who hasn’t done it much—a little hard, a little awkward.
Perfect.
Because it’s him, it’s Shane, and the cool silk of his long hair brushes against my face as he kisses me, his tall, strong body close enough to touch if he’ll just take one small step forward. If he’ll let me close the gap and press myself to him.
He doesn’t. Even as I loop my arms around his neck, tugging, his hands on my face are like steel vises, keeping me in place, just near enough for our mouths to meet and the most scorching kiss I’ve ever been given.
Shane wants me. He wants me. The words spin in my mind in colorful, dizzying circles. I mean, he’s kissing me. Would he kiss me if he didn’t? Why won’t he let me close?
His teeth nip at my lips, making me gasp, sending jolts of fire into my core, and he walks me backward until my back hits the wall with a thump. I love all of it, love the feel of his mouth on mine, the strength in his hands, the way I have to strain upward to meet his mouth because he’s so tall. I’m so caught in the sensations that I jerk when he moves closer.
He’s breathing raggedly against my mouth. He finally crushes his body to mine, pressing me to the wall, letting me feel how aroused he is. His hard-on is long and thick, digging into my belly.
Damn, this boy’s so hot I could come just from that.
But then his grip on my jaw turns so hard it hurts. I whimper, and he stops moving, every muscle turned to stone, his mouth just pressed to mine as he pants.
Why? No, I don’t want him to stop. I like how hard he’s gripping me, how he’s bearing on me until I can feel every ridge of every muscle through our thick clothes. That he’s holding me like he’ll drown if he lets go, like he’s losing control from wanting me so much.
I want to feel that wanted. That needed. No one has ever reacted that way with me—and there’s never been anyone I’ve wanted so much. Liked so much.
My arms are still wrapped around his neck, the silk of his hair tickling my fingers, and I try to pull him closer. I let my hands slip over his powerful shoulders, down his sides, to the front of his pants, stroke over the big bulge there.
There’s the proof that he likes what we’re doing. His dick can’t lie, right?
I kiss his lips, willing him to kiss me back, to touch me more.
But he’s already pulling away, releasing my cheeks, ripping himself from my hold, his eyes wide and wild.
“Fuck,” he breathes and stumbles back. “Fuck, I’m sorry.”

Cover Reveal: This Man of Mine by J.S. Cooper





**This Man of Mine by New York Times Bestselling Author J. S. Cooper Cover Reveal**

This Man of Mine is a standalone novel by J. S. Cooper that will be released on April 26th, 2016. The cover was designed by Louisa Maggio of LM Book Creations!


How well can you know someone? What if the person you were closest to was the one you couldn't trust?

Ellen 


I thought I met the love of my life. I thought he was my soulmate. I thought I could trust him with my everything. But at what point do you truly know a person?

I met Finn when I was a child. He was my best friend, my protector, my other half. Both of us had troubled childhoods, secrets we wanted to take to the grave, but somehow together we grew stronger. Our connection was the most important part of my life until he broke my heart.

With nothing left inside I tried to fill myself with my studies guided by inspiring Professor Bhear. Together we made a great team -- his deep insights and strong directions coupled with my dedication uncovered secrets not only in our research but also connected to a local mystery. The lines soon became blurred as we delved deeper into the disappearance of local girls and I began to wonder exactly what Professor Bhear wanted from me.

Nora 

Life had no meaning for me until I met Rafe. He was serious, thoughtful and passionate. He was the antithesis of everything I believed in, yet I was drawn to him, like a moth to a flame. He excited me with his romanticism, yet, there was a frightening edge to him that I didn't understand. His pursuit of me was ruthless, captivating, all-consuming and that excited me.

Then the emails started coming. And the calls. A dark mysterious stranger started wooing me. And something about our connection and his devotion to me ignites a yearning in me that can't be quenched or matched. I find myself drawn to this man, even though common sense tells me to be cautious. Intrinsically, I know I can trust him. I know his devotion and love are real.

When do you know if you've met the love of your life? How do you know if you can trust someone. Ellen and Nora both find themselves caught up in a twisted web of deceit, love and secrets that they don't know how to untangle. As they start to unravel the layers of all of the men in their lives, they start to realize that they are connected in a shocking way and that nothing is ever as it seems. Sometimes the ones we trust the most are the ones that can most shock us.

Blog Tour: Owned (Domination #2) by Leigh Stone





Title: Owned (Domination #2)
Author: Leigh Stone 
Genre: Erotica / BDSM 






The second in the Domination series. Six sexy little tales of female submission. 

I’ve known Owen for about five years now. I met him in a bar when I went to play some pool at the local university’s bar with a few of the students I worked with. Owen was in his twenties, from Wales, a student in the same university. I was in my early thirties. We flirted, we teased each other, we even had a bit of a very short period of dating, but in the end we became best friends. I never would have dreamed that it would turn out to be a lot more than that. My hot Welsh friend had a secret that I didn’t find out for a few years. He’s a dominant, a Dom, a Master, a Sir. 

At first I thought nothing of it, I knew that I wasn’t ‘like that’, but the more Owen gave me glimpses into his world the more and more intrigued I became. He led me down the path to submission, like the white rabbit leading Alice into Wonderland. Now I am hooked, I am addicted to the pleasure that only he can generate in me. I am his. I am OWNED.











I'm Leigh Stone, I live in Northern Ireland, just outside the capital city of Belfast, in a house I share with my teenage daughter, and our personal zoo (1 Labrador mix, 3 cats, and 2 rabbits!).
I'm first and foremost a reader, and a fast reader at that, often devouring books in a single sitting over a period of hours. I have always had aspirations to write and become a published author, but as a teenager I was encouraged to look for a different profession, as being an author "wouldn't pay the bills."
It was that reading that lead a friend of mine to suggest that I had read so many of those books that I could probably write my own! It seemed like a good idea, and I thought that I would give it a try :) a few months later Lex's Melody was well underway, and the rest as they say is history!

Blog Tour: Noah's Journey by C.A. Harms



Title: Noah's Journey
Series: Sawyer Brothers Series #3
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Western Contemp Romance
Release Date:  February 2, 2016 Publisher: Limitless Publishing 

 

The years that were taken can never be repaid. 
The memories stolen can never be returned. 
But I had to move forward…for him, my son. 
Noah had spent years wondering what he could have done differently. Wondering what he’d done wrong to make Stacey leave. The heartache from her absence and the what-ifs of their past eventually turned to anger—and then disgust. 
It took years for him to move on, and once he did, his past came thundering back, revealing a secret. 
A secret that would forever change his future. 
Alena had waited for the chance to have more with Noah. He was an enigma, a man of mystery, yet she wasn’t quite ready to give up on him. She knew there was more to him than what he allowed those around him to see. She was drawn to his charm and his calm nature. With an uprooted past of her own, she craved a little stability more than anything. But when things between them finally begin to grow into more, their relationship is tested. 
Will it all be too much for Alena to handle? 
Or will she decide to stay and be a part of…Noah’s Journey?
