RELEASE BLITZ / Giveaway - Meant For You by Lili Valente @lili_valente_ro

Title: Meant For You
A Sexy Flirty Dirty Standalone Romance
Author: Lili Valente
Genre: Hot Romantic Comedy
Release Date: February 14, 2017


Hot, hilarious, feel-good romance from the USA Today Bestselling author of Magnificent Bastard.

I was her first love, and I’m going to be her last…

On paper, I’ve got it all—good looks, good friends, a killer business, and gorgeous women throwing themselves at me from every corner of the globe. But I still can’t get one woman out of my f*cking head.

Her. Adeline Klein, the sexiest little smart ass in wire-rimmed glasses and a polka-dot bikini to ever bring a man to his knees.

God, she was something….

But I’m pretty sure she hates me. I’ve tried to track her down, but it’s like she dropped off the face of the earth. Then one day there she is—stranded on the side of the road, waiting for rescue, like Fate has arranged for me to be her knight in shining armor all over again.

Only she would clearly prefer to kick me in the balls. Or the face. Or maybe the balls and the face simultaneously. But do I let that keep me from making her come on the slopes or dampen the fire that flares between us every time we touch?

No way. Because some things—like sweet, wounded women with hearts of gold and souls of pure platinum—are worth fighting for.

Meant For You is a steamy Standalone second chance romance with a swoony HEA.

Seconds later, I land flat on my back with an oof that’s echoed by the sled as it slaps down a few feet away and shivers across the snow to spin in a lazy circle near a very large rock. I’m staring at the rock, thinking about how much worse things would be right now if I’d fallen on it instead of the snow, and silently thanking the gods of sledding that I’m alive, when I hear a male voice shout—

“Fuck! Shit! Shit!”

—from somewhere overhead.

A moment later a steerable sled shoots off the ledge, soaring over my head to ram into a tree, splintering to pieces.

I flinch and cough, the breath rushing back into my lungs. I’m trying to roll over, figuring I’d better get up before my luck runs out and someone lands on top of me, when Nate’s head pops up above the snow bank. “Adeline! Are you okay? Are you hurt?”

My eyes narrow. “You.”

“Stay there, I’ll be right down,” he says, clearly not realizing that he’s the last person I want to see while I’m lying in the snow in a defeated heap.

“I don’t need help,” I call out, but I don’t try to get up again. I’ve already embarrassed myself enough in front of Nate. I refuse to give him the satisfaction of seeing me wallow around in a snowdrift like an artic walrus.

In what feels like no time, he’s found his way down to the scene of my humiliation and fallen to his knees beside me. “Just lie still.” The concern on his face as he tugs off his gloves is almost funny. Too bad I’m not in the mood to laugh anymore. “I have first aid training. Not a lot, but enough to see if anything’s broken. Can you tell me where it hurts?”

“It doesn’t hurt,” I insist, still making no move to rise. “I’m fine. You can leave.”

He scowls, and his eyes flash the way they do when he’s angry. Or turned on. Or maybe angrily turned on, though I’ve never personally seen him in that state. “You just sledded off a goddamned ledge, Adeline,” he says, voice rough. “And you’re not moving.”

“I don’t feel like moving,” I say stubbornly. “I’m enjoying a rest in the snow. So go away, Nate. Go, go, go away, and don’t come back another day.”

His breath rushes out. “That’s mature.”

“Yeah? Well, screw mature,” I say, the heat in my tone surprising me. “I did mature. I did all the mature while you were off hitting keg parties. I don’t have to do mature right now, and I don’t have to talk to you. So go away!”

Nate’s jaw clenches and I’m pretty sure he’s about to lose his temper in a fashion unlike anything I’ve seen from him before.

Instead he leans in, wrapping his hands around my wrists, pinning them to the snow. “I’m not going away,” he whispers inches from my lips, making my pulse spike. “Not until you let me get through to you, one way or another.”

“If you kiss me, I’m going to bite you,” I warn, heart racing.

“Fine by me. I like it when you bite.” And then he kisses me. He kisses me hard and deep and my stupid body lights up like a California brush fire.

My nerve endings ignite, and fireworks launch behind my closed eyes, and I moan into his mouth like he’s the best thing that’s ever happened to my lips. And he is, the bastard. He tastes so good, so incredibly good, like the first drink of water after hours spent boiling in the summer heat—fresh and clean and explosively delicious.

BLOG TOUR - Hunter by A.E. Fisher

I spent years running from my past. Then, when my past comes knocking in the form of dark, delicious sin, I find myself caught up in a man I shouldn’t. My son's uncle. A dangerous biker. Not to mention, an overbearing Alpha male.
Hunter is everything I need to escape from, yet I find myself wanting to stay. I know I shouldn't let myself or my son care for him, but I can't help wondering if maybe he's the one who can finally save me from my past.
The plan was simple. Find my nephew, bring him home, and raise him in the Black Angels like my brother would have wanted. But things never go as planned, like my nephew’s mother. My brother’s one-night stand.
Mallory is spicy and sweet; one second she is mouthing off to me, and the next, she is moaning my name. The longer I’m with her, the harder she is to ignore. But she is hiding something while desperate to escape me, though I have her in my grasp. I will find out what she is hiding, and when I do, she will have nowhere left to run.
Writing books had been a big part of my life for many years; whether it was writing in secret notebooks during class, writing amateur novels or posting stories online, I surrounded myself with it.
Of course, it has its up and downs, but I've never once thought that writing wasn't for me.
Because of that, I can share the worlds I discover in my head with the outside world, and although that might sound crazy to some, it's fine by me. So long as I can do what I love, I'm happy.
And every person who's happy as a result of my writing is a bonus for which, I'm forever grateful for.

I had rules.  They protected the fortress of my darkness. 
My secrets. 
I allowed myself certain distractions, but nothing permanent. 
It wasn’t allowed. 
If I slipped, then I’d fall.
That was one thing I couldn’t afford.
Until her.
She was secrets wrapped up in a challenge.  Tied with a big bow of sensuality.
I was about to take the biggest fall of my life.

I’d found complacency in my nightmare.
A comfort in normalcy.
I was surviving.
It sucked, but I was safe.
Until he crashed into my world.
He had secrets.
Lots of them.
He wasn’t the good guy.
But was he what I needed?

She's hiding from her future.
He's running from his past.
When they collide it's explosive.
Danger is a persistent predator.
It seeks until it finds.
There is no past, and no future.
There is only now, and right now danger is coming.
You can run, but you can never hide.


 When we pull into the driveway at my house, I can hear the blood whooshing in my ears as the thud, thud, thud of my pounding heart bounced against my chest. 
Rico gets out of the car and walks around to my side.
My palms are sweating.
Am I going to let this happen?
“This is a beautiful car,” I mutter when the door swings open.
He gives me a half-cocked grin.  “Thanks.”
He holds his hand out for me to take.
Do I want this to happen?
Placing my hand in his, the surge of sexual tension sparks between us again, just like when he had his hand on my back leading me to the table.  I lift my eyes to meet his.  All traces of humor are gone.  I suck in a breath.
This man is fierce.
This man is powerful.
This man takes what he wants.
He’s the hunter, and I’m the hunted.
And for the first time in so long, this is exactly where I want to be.
Am I even going to be able to do this?!
I lift myself from the car, never breaking the heated look between us, and let him lead me to the door.
He’s going to kiss me! 
The world is gone.
Time has stopped.
Every move he makes is precise and focused. 
He lifts his hands to tuck my hair behind my ears, then slowly traces his thumb across my cheek, down to my upper lip, and lightly glides it across the ridge. 
My lids dip. 
God, that feels so good.  It’s been so long…
His other hand cups my cheek and holds me firmly.  An avalanche of emotions crashes down on me.  The floodgates of all my pent-up desires are destroyed leaving me open and vulnerable.  Open to whatever road this is going to take me.
His hand moves behind my neck as he lowers his face a breath away from mine.  He’s so close, I can almost feel his lips on mine.  The first touch is light like a feather.  Just a gentle brush over mine. 
I start to melt.
The next one is tender, a soft kiss at the corner of my mouth.
A heavy breath escapes me.
His grip tightens at the back of my neck.
I moan.  Soft, but needy.
Another gentle kiss at the other corner.
My lips part asking for more.
He glides his tongue over my lips.
My body presses into his.
All my reservations, all my fears and inhibitions, are gone.
So good, so, so good…
He closes his mouth over mine as his tongue sweeps against mine, stroking, caressing, dancing slowly, savoring.  Tempting me with a promise for more.
Fires burn inside me, instantly turning the tenderness into a raging inferno.
I lift my arms and wrap them around his neck, pulling him closer, hungry and fierce.  I need to feel him against me, I want him inside me, close is nowhere near close enough.
He turns us and pushes my back against the brick wall.
Yes, yes, YES.  More, I need more… 
He takes my bottom lip between his teeth and bites it, the sensation just shy of painful.  I dig my nails into his scalp and grind his mouth into mine.  A low rumble sounds from his chest and vibrates against my body as he pushes the entire length of his against me.  My body answers his, rubbing against his hard shaft. 
I’m pushing him to his limits. 
He pushes me harder into the stone wall as his fist tangles tightly in my hair. 
I drag my nails down his back.
He sucks my tongue deep into his mouth. 
I moan again, long and guttural.
His mouth travels down my neck.
“This is just a taste, kitten, of how you need to be kissed,” he whispers huskily against my neck.
Yes, just like this!
I’m panting, breathless, delirious and hungry for more.
His hands slow their movements against my body.  I try to rein in the need he’s unleashed from within me.  We stand like that, pressed against each other for a long moment, coming down, pulling in our primitive beasts.
“You should go in now…”
“I should,” I whisper back.
Both of us don’t move, unable to break the hold over us.
Slowly we begin to separate.
“Until our next date,” he kisses me lightly once more.
I stare into his eyes.  I could drown in their intensity.  And come out renewed. 
As I straighten and turn to unlock the door, he pushes my hair to the side and places one last kiss at the curve of my neck. 
My body trembles.
I don’t want him to leave. 
As the door clicks shut behind me, I lean against it, and feel my heart beating inside me.

Promo Tour - The Essiens Series by Kiru Taye

The Essiens Series
Author: Kiru Taye
Genre: Adult, Erotic Romance
Secrets, Scandals, and Seduction under African skies.

The Essiens are the kings of African finance. A close-knit family, their father is the patriarch of a finance dynasty that ranges from retail to investment banking spanning the African continent. Yet all is not as it seems as the brothers—Felix, Mark, Tony, Kola and Freddie—soon discover when their family is rocked by secrets and scandals. Blood ties or not, family is family.

Have you ever loved someone and didn’t even know it?

That’s the dilemma facing Felix Essien when he wakes from a coma to find he is married to the most beautiful and sensual woman he’s ever known. He cannot remember her or their wedding. He who had sworn never to get married or to give his heart to another. Yet he feels an intense bond with her that he intends to explore fully.

Ebony can’t believe her good fortune when her paper husband wakes not remembering the temporary marriage arrangement with no intimacies he’d proposed but is now the adoring husband she’s always dreamt of. She plans to make the most of the passion blossoming between them.

However would he still feel that way when he regains his memory and realises she’s been keeping secrets and their marriage is not what he thinks it is.

Sassy, successful Faith Brown has earned her place in the boardroom through hard work and sheer ambition. Making family is not on her agenda when there are businesses to develop and competitors to outdo. So when a casual affair with smooth and irresistible tycoon Mark Essien leads to an unplanned pregnancy, she’s determined not to make the mistakes her mother made by living with a man just for the sake of her child.

For Mark, personal matters have no place in the boardroom. Spotting the perfect opportunity, he ruthlessly launches a takeover bid for Faith’s Investment Brokerage firm. Finding out he’ll soon be a father, he knows he can’t let the indomitable and sexy Faith go through with her plans of single parenthood. All gloves are off. He’ll seduce her by any tactic necessary if it means his child doesn’t suffer the same stigma he did as a child.

With the media dogging their affairs in the boardroom and the bedroom, they find that making family is harder than making scandal.

Seen as the rebel Essien, Tony has always felt like an outsider. With a daredevil lifestyle, he’s more at home in leathers than in a suit, and more likely to be seen gracing the red carpets at a movie premiere with a starlet draped on his arms than in a boardroom. Still, he’s determined to prove himself to his family and build a successful movie business. Spotting Rita Dike at an event, he sees the potential star of his new movie and his next pleasure conquest.

Rita is a journalist looking for her big break. When she inherits the journal of a late friend which claims Tony is not an Essien through the hands of her boss, a man with a shady past, Rita spots the perfect scoop. Her acting classes come in handy when she has to pose as an actress to get closer to Tony. Succumbing to the charms of dark and brooding Tony might just be the only way to get through the close ranks of the Essien family.

But as she gets closer to the truth, Rita risks losing the riding rebel who’s raided her heart. Can love heal hearts or will deceit break them?

When sassy heiress, Tari Essien, needs a place to escape the pressures of the hounding press, she turns to Kola Banks, a deeply scarred ex-soldier who's also the Essien chief of security. Kola can't offer Tari anything more than his protection. She's family for goodness sake, even if they share no blood ties.

It’s a weekend of lessons for both of them. Together they can't avoid the explosive heat that sizzles between them, nor help pushing each others' boundaries physically as well as emotionally.

But when the weekend ends and Tari's life is in danger, will Kola put his body as well as his heart in the line of fire to keep her safe?

Catch up with the Essiens as they celebrate Christmas the very Essien way. Find out what's going on with Felix & Ebony, Mark & Faith, Tony & Rita, Kola & Tari as well as Chief & Mrs Essien. Also get a sneak peek into Freddie's love life and upcoming story.

As you've come to expect from the series, there will be some sexiness and surprises in this saga. Be ready for passion and romance in A Very Essien Christmas.

Violence marked Freddie Edun's early years. Coming to work for the Essiens saved him from the angry young man he was and gave him focus. Now he's walking the path of success and partnership in Banks Security business is within reach. He just has to seal this deal with a potential client first. Until he meets the client's wife and the deal becomes at risk of taking a nose dive.

Kike Ogun married young to a man who dazzled her with his bogus charm. She’s lived like a caged bird for many years but with a looming milestone birthday on the horizon she is determined to walk a new path of self-love. If she could just ignore the electrifying and forbidden attraction she feels towards a younger man from the first moment they meet.

With a devious ex who refuses to let go, she’s going to need help—Freddie’s protection—to stay alive long enough to celebrate her upcoming birthday. And she’s going to have to give in to her dark passion for him and finally unleash the natural woman inside. If it's only sex, then what's love got to do it?

Kiru is the award winning author of His Treasure. She writes sensual and passionate multicultural romance stories set mostly in Africa. When she's not writing you can find her either immersed in a good book or catching up with friends and family. She currently lives in the South of England with her husband and three children.
