Sign Up for the BAD BOYS WANTED Release Blitz: Please and Thank you! #erotic #romance #BadBoys #BDSM
Roane Publishing is looking for Hosts for the upcoming release blitz for BAD BOYS WANTED, which will include a story from me (R. Brennan), as well as some fantastic erotic author friends of mine. If you like my stories, you are going to LOVE theirs. Just click the image above to be brought to the tour sign-up page.
Here are the story descriptions… a little something to tease you with, my dear.
Unrepentant – Lila Shaw
Lucky Lotto winner, Amy Burns has had enough of family members begging for handouts. With her millions safely hidden from the general public’s knowledge by way of an anonymous trust fund, she’s moved west to find a new beginning. She’s also found Jazz, a taciturn employee at her gym she can’t seem to stay away from.Only problem? He’s an ex-convict. Can Amy trust the former thief with her heart, especially after her relentless step-brother discovers her whereabouts and threatens to expose her secret, or might an unrepentant bad boy be the real winning ticket?
Over the Edge – Stella Berkley
Nothing short of a lobotomy could make Roman King forget Sloane Holliwell—part angel, part devil, and all his. If only she wasn’t the love of his best friend’s life. Even though they’re broken up, Roman would never hurt his brother from another mother that way.
Sloane has been self-destructing since her darkest fantasy, Roman, cut her out of his life. When he finds her bruised at a bar, he saves her from yet another boyfriend disaster. But he still won’t claim her despite their obvious attraction.
Instead, he offers to teacher her how to be a submissive, so he can find her a master that will take care of her. Once he gets her in the playroom, though, he discovers Sloane is playing games of her own.
Death’s Angel – Kastil Eavenshade
Four years ago, Constantine lost the only woman he ever loved. Now the incubus is culling the responsible vampire brood’s food source. One by one he steals the souls of the blood sucker’s familiars to turn the human population against his enemy. Blinded by vengeance, he makes the one mistake that could cost him the retribution he seeks.
Half-werewolf, Indira is thrust in the hands of the vampires to maintain peace amongst the clans. Instead of being an ambassador, she becomes a prisoner and forgotten by her pack. When the vampires bring a mysterious man trussed into their dungeons, he stirs something inside long since buried. Sexy and beyond anything she’s dealt with, her beating heart yearns to sacrifice her soul for one taste of Constantine.
In the throes of revenge, can the light of one angel tame a beast bred in hell?
Finding Forever – Lynn Burke
Samantha likes to bang a guy’s headboard and take off long before he bangs up her heart. Temptation returns in the form of a Zeus-like, tattooed hunk, the man whose first kiss roused her teenage hormones. His arrival carries the promise for more, but Sam’s determination to enjoy a taste–or two–without risking her heart could cost her the chance at finding forever.
Temptations of the Cage – R. Brennan
While she’s never considered herself a submissive, Katrina Norton has always had a bit of a pain fetish, so when the opportunity to work at one of the city’s most popular BDSM clubs presents itself, she decides it’s the perfect way to indulge her darker desires and earn enough money to pay for the expensive medications her ailing grandmother requires.
But when she meets handsome club owner, Damien Michaels, Trina has to remind herself he’s a potential boss, and off limits. Certainly not someone she should be imagining kneeling before and begging for just a taste of what’s hiding beneath his expensive tailored suit.
If she could just get her traitorous body to stick to the plan.
Without Words by Lolly Tova
Ivy McPhee dreads attending her high school reunion, but she’s willing to brave her childhood tormentors to see the bad boy she sat beside everyday on the school bus. Though they never exchanged a word, a decade later, he still owns her heart, and she’s determined to find out if the connection she felt to him all those years ago was a shared experience.
Ollie Ashwood, lead singer of the successful indie band Infraction, is still every inch a trouble maker, but his days of partying and womanizing are over. He’s finally ready to claim the only girl he ever cared enough about not to sweet talk into his arms. Playing a set at his school reunion seems the perfect ploy to draw Ivy out and tell her she’s the woman of his dreams.
Any chance of the two alumni discovering the depths of their feelings for one another is shattered by a scheming ex-student. Only revelations about the past can get Ollie and Ivy back on the right track, but Ollie must first persuade Ivy to bear her bully’s teasing long enough to listen.

Accidental Valentine Blog Tour and an #Excerpt by @KatrinaSizemore #Romance #Anthology @Roanepublishing
Today I have the distinct pleasure of bringing you an excerpt from the recently released anthology, ACCIDENTAL VALENTINE. The anthology contains five wonderful stories of accidental Valentine’s Day romance, and I have to say, I really enjoyed the whole thing. A great light read, or something to pull out at the waiting room or while waiting your turn at the DMV.
My excerpt is from Better Latte Than Never by Katrina Sizemore…
“Sorry you’re stuck with me today,” he said.
Hailey dashed inside.
The warmth of the shop and his voice enveloped her. It already smelled beautiful in there. The usual coffee smells, but also something spicy. Something extra.
“It’s okay…” She took a deep fortifying breath, appreciating more of the new scent and adjusted her purse strap on her shoulder.
The bolt thudded into place and he stepped back into her view.
Since when had Andrew become so hot, and what was wrong with her? He had been her best bud since at least freshman year.
She swept her gaze over him again, tallying the changes she could see. Besides the sexy stubble and the muscle that twitched in his temple as he observed her inspection, he was the same old Drew. Button up flannel shirt, sleeves rolled up, khakis that hung on his frame as if they had been tailored. But instead of the supportive old friend that he was, he appeared scrumptious and totally kissable.
She dragged in a breath.
A timer beeped, breaking the moment.
“Hey, I made you coffee. It’s on the counter.” He headed to the back, leaving her to notice the holiday decorations and cardboard cherub hanging from the ceiling in front of her, his arrow pointed right at her chest. As if Cupid intended to make her his target. Her heart skipped a beat.
Hailey rolled her eyes at herself. Valentine’s Day wasn’t like Halloween. The veil between worlds wasn’t thin. Magic didn’t happen on Valentine’s Day. She had watched Amy hang the thing yesterday, pulling him out of the packaging from a big party store.
“Bring it on, fat baby,” she muttered and went looking for some coffee.

About Katrina Sizemore:
When Katrina was eleven, she penned a fantasy story for school with her best friend and has been writing ever since. As Katrina grew older, her love of reading expanded beyond fantasy to include romance and science fiction. The focus of her stories followed.
Still enchanted by the mystical and fantastical, she now weaves romantic stories about couples caught in contemporary settings, as well as paranormal and fantastical worlds.
Everyone deserves true love and a little magic.
Here are the details on the anthology as a whole:
Title: Accidental Valentine
Author: Various Authors
Publisher: Roane Publishing
Release Date: February 13, 2015
Keywords: Contemporary, Romance, Valentine’s Day, Short Stories, Anthology, Sweet
Guiding Hearts by Claire Gillian
Description: Is a lonely woman’s GPS sentient or is her subconscious taking her by the hand to help heal a scarred heart?
When Jemma Ernst’s GPS malfunctions and sends her to the home of handsome and engaging Gabriel Nash, she writes it off as a fluke. But she can’t seem to reprogram him out of her thoughts nor her GPS.
Better Latte Than Never by Katrina Sizemore
Description: Single and cold on Valentine’s Day, Hailey Merritt is not looking forward to working all day at the coffee shop while everyone around her is cheery with romance and she’s stuck trying to figure out her next step in life.
But, when a special bouquet arrives for her from a secret admirer, she decides to reserve judgment on this holiday and find whomever sent the flowers.
Maybe Cupid has a plan to make this her favorite Valentine’s Day ever.
Dream Architect by S.L. Hughson
Description: Taylor and Sons Custom Design keeps ASHLIN TAYLOR at arm’s length from her dream job. If only she were a son, she could follow her architectural dream. In the Taylor creed, girls get married and boys have careers. DYLAN CUTRIGHT focuses on finishing college and landing an architectural engineering job in a large firm. Minus emotional ties.
After their accidental encounter, their attraction is amplified during their work interaction. Unlike her family, Dylan encourages Ashlin to pursue her dream by enrolling in college. He even argues her case with Uncle Mike. All of this support confuses Ashlin because when she moves closer to him, he rebuffs her for reasons she can only speculate about.
Valentine’s Day might be the perfect opportunity for Ashlin to make him notice her. They are working together – alone – on the most romantic day of the year. Dylan builds her dream of career, but will he ever lower his walls and become more than just the man IN her dreams?
One Hot Angel by Jaylee Austin
Description: Oblivious to Tiffany Jenkins in three short weeks her life will end—unless she makes the perfect choice. Will she chose revenge and expose her ex-husband? Or chose love and surrender her heart to the only man who can save her?
Rock My Bones by Wendy Sparrow
Description: Jared has been eyeing the sexy mural painter from inside the museum’s paleontology lab, but she’s way out of his league. He can’t let her paint that obviously misplaced fern, though…even if it means initiating contact.
You could call her a paleontology groupie, but Shay Meyers is interested in a more modern specimen. An adult male Homo Sapien to be exact—one who needs to be dragged out of his lab for a practical course in mating rituals. If she’s lucky, this will be the Valentine’s Day she rocks his bones.

All she wanted was a rose…
These are the words on my sister’s grave. Her sadness, her obsession, forever a reminder I didn’t–couldn’t save her.
I’m not vindictive or cruel. I’m simply as the river–my memory is winding and my reach is long. I watched him steal her beauty, her essence. Watched him become a beast. He thought he’d get away with it, thought he’d go free.
I lay a rose upon my sister’s grave.
Light a candle for the beast.

Ghost of a Chance – Lily Carlyle
Julie looked from the car—a BMW—to him and back. “This is your car?”
“Like?” He beeped the doors unlocked, and opened the passenger side for Julie.
She paused before she got in, stroking the car’s cold smooth surface. “Is this real?” She sank into the leather seat, sighing as it enveloped her in comfort, and turned to Sean as he got in. “I’d offer condolences on your penis size if I didn’t know better.”
He gave her a sidelong glance, snorting, “Gee, thanks.”
The car’s tires chirped as Sean reversed then pulled out of the parking spot.
“Where are we going?” Julie held her numb hands in front of the air vents, willing the car to warm up.
“It’s a surprise.” Sean flicked a switch on the dashboard. “And, I have another surprise—heated seats.”
Julie moaned as the leather began to warm beneath her. “I take back everything nasty I implied about this car. It’s the best car ever.”
“What about my penis?”
She sensed him looking at her out of the corner of his eye. “No comment.”

About the Author: Lily Carlyle decided she wanted to be a writer when she was seven years old, but convinced of the impossibility of earning a living that way, she studied history instead (a decision she still can’t explain). In between working as an archivist and book reviewer and trying to keep her two daughters fed, Lily tries to find time and inspiration to realize her original dream.
So hey everyone. Good to be back among the living… for the most part.
As an author, I have had an opportunity to meet tons of new people — writers, readers and bloggers alike. I have formed friendships I know will last a lifetime. Most notably with the ladies in my critique group on Scribophile — The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pens, some of whom I am as close to as my own sisters. Love them, cheer for them, cry for them — they have shown me what friendship is about.
Another is the host of the blog we are celebrating today, In the Pages of a Good Book. Beckey has been amazingly supportive of my and my writing, so I was thrilled to have a chance to participate in her giveaway event.

Purr-fect Mating Blog Tour: All the better to tease you with, my dear. #Excerpt #Teaser @RoanePublishing @WintersSheryl #Shifters
Hello and welcome back to the Nook!
As usual, I have a special treat for you all today. I have managed to score you all a teaser from the recently released shifter romance from Roane Publishing and author, Sheryl Winters, titled PURR-FECT MATING.
Gorgeous cover, ain’t it? *winks*
Of course, I have liked all of Roane’s covers so far. But, I digress… let me get to the good stuff… your peek at Purr-fect Mating.
On their wedding night, at the stroke of midnight, Wulfar changes into his shifted wolf form and cannot shift back. Not even to communicate with the woman he loves.
Fhina, upon waking the day after their mating, no longer recognizes her mate. Pregnant and confused, she’s convinced herself her mate has run away and left her to live alone. With his dog.
Can the cursed pair find a counter charm before Fhina gives birth? Will Wulfar be able to curb his inclination to run?
Or will their mutual curses break up their love affair before it’s really even started.

Pounding on the door has us both jumping.
The discovery of finding my soul mate has me off center. We could die from my negligence. I must deal with this hunter, and soon. Taking a deep breath, I swing open the door.
Human cells twist to that of a feline. My arms and legs lengthen, growing more muscular. Fur sprouts where smooth skin was. My dress falls to the ground as my kitty skin erupts into being—one hundred percent Siberian Tiger. Roaring, I knock the gun from the hunter’s hand.
He falls backward with a heavy oof.
My claws unsheathe and I tap them against the human’s jaw, watching in delight as fear crawls into his eyes.
The man is the type who kills my kind for sport. It’s on the stench of his skin. The type of evil you can’t rid your flesh of. He’s one who deserves to die.
“You are not welcome here,” Wulfar growls from behind me.
“Another beast. Shit.” The hunter gropes for his gun, but the weight of my tiger body has him safely pinned to the ground.
“Do I look like a beast? Why were you knocking on my door?” The fur at my nape bristles. “Don’t you know your kind is not welcome in this area?”
The hunter squeals, wiggling beneath me and attempts some type of halfhearted Judo move, which he performs with ill grace.
Did he really think he could throw off a full grown tiger? Laying flat, I allow him to feel the true weight of my transformed body.

Well — what are you waiting for… go get yourself a copy so you know what happens next!!
