The Divorce Planner by Angela Lam Blitz & Giveaway


The Divorce Planner
Angela Lam
Published by: The Wild Rose Press
Publication date: May 20th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
When her daughter suggests Darcy Madison attend her ex-husband’s wedding, Darcy enlists the help of her colleague, divorce attorney Victor Costello, to pose as her dashing young date. But when Victor proposes to Darcy at the reception, Darcy forgets they are pretending and says, “Yes!” Between her false engagement to Victor and her daughter’s suggestion to have a double wedding, Darcy falls even further in the fantasy of being a blushing midlife bride. The longer the masquerade continues, the more Darcy starts to wonder what is love and can it last forever in a world where divorce is the only language she knows?


EXCERPT:
“Are you leaving?” He stood.
“Yes.” A flash of disappointment descended over her shoulders. “I think I’ll go.”
“Let me walk you to your car.”
“But you’ll miss the live auction and the dancing.”
He offered his arm. “I’d rather spend the time with you.”
A touch of kinship united them.
She wove her arm through his. How delightful to find someone who enjoyed her company as much as she enjoyed his.
Matching strides, they walked around the tables of guests. A few people stopped them to comment on how cute a couple they made.
She blushed from the compliments.
He nudged open the double doors.
A gust of cool summer air blasted against her face. She shivered.
He tugged her closer. “Would you like my jacket?”
“No, thank you. I’m parked over there.” She waved toward the left.
They strode over to an ancient sports sedan.
Darcy unlocked her door and tossed her clutch inside. As she turned to say good night, she trembled with anticipation. Would he kiss her again?
Standing in silence, he gazed into her eyes.
A flicker of desire lapped at her feet and licked up into her belly. She had never seen eyes so big, so bold, and so beautiful. Oh, why wouldn’t he kiss her?

Release Blitz & Giveaway: Royal Catch by Kylie Gilmore




Title: Royal Catch
Series: The Rourkes #1
Author: Kylie Gilmore
Genre: Steamy Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 14, 2019



Blurb

A gruff prince in need of a wife
A commoner impersonating a princess
And a bridal competition gone terribly awry…

Gabriel
I am the crown prince of Villroy, heir to a kingdom, bound by duty to marry and produce an heir.
I expected a quiet arrangement through royal channels, instead I got a palace full of women vying for my hand. And how do they “win” this barbaric game set up by my crafty mother? By figuring out how to save the kingdom’s faltering economy through a series of challenges. This undignified circus is beneath a man of my stature! Proof being that a saucy, ill-mannered woman wearing body-hugging clothes is in the lead. I could never love someone like that, let alone marry her.

Anna
The plan sounded simple.
I pose as my friend, pick up her inheritance, and return with the cash to keep her out of jail. (Apparently, being a princess in hiding is no excuse for identity theft.) So, yeah, I’m not exactly royal. I’m an orphan, a self-made woman, and proud of it. Suddenly I’m in a battle royale with a bunch of crazy competitive women for “riches beyond our dreams.” I’m in a time crunch, which means I need to win this competition fast. Only, that means winning over the judge; the smoldering hot grim-faced Gabriel. And now I find myself wanting to compete for more than just the money. But could a royal prince ever fall for a commoner like me?

Blurb:

Mordecai is a psychopath with secrets. Miriam is a psychology student with faith. Both want the same thing-- to get into each other's minds. But where Miriam’s intentions are pure, Mordecai’s are full of sadistic games. Mordecai lures Miriam into the dark recesses of his psyche, eager to use every means to imprison her in his world. Once he does, he will stop at nothing until he owns every part of her. The battlefield is set. Faith and sadistic pleasure will collide. Let the games begin.
   

AN EXCERPT FROM SADISTIC GAMES

“So your wisdom and prudence say you very well may not be safe with me but your optimism says you’re going to believe the best. Essentially you’re putting your optimism before your faith.” “I’m putting faith in the wisdom that I believe you can change—” “But I don’t share that faith,” he cut in. “I’m optimistic in the data you’ve provided thus far, that you will at least hear me out, allow me to employ whatever methods to prove my thesis.” “What data did I provide you that lead you to this?” he wondered, curious about her deduction abilities of him. “You’ve clearly demonstrated that you’re a man of logic. A man that respects the laws and all they require. That you respect others right to live and believe as they wish. And you’re kind--. why are you laughing?” He leaned forward, unable to keep it in. “I’m kind. How did you figure that one?” “Well, you…” She eyed him as he faced her, his interest alive and all over her. “You cooked for me.” “Because I don’t want you touching anything in my kitchen.” “You… you fixed me a lot of food.” “Because I can’t have a malnourished subject.” “You gave me the Princess room,” she shot at him with a finger to which he laughed. “It’s the only other bedroom on this floor and I needed my homework on the same floor as me. She straightened even more. “You offered to create my own exercise program,” she cried. “Merely an opportunity to study you.” She finally sat back with a huff, staring at his humored expression. “I suppose you are sadistic, what with that smirk you’re wearing. Enjoying the fact that you’re a Mr. Meany Pants.” Meany-Pants. Fuck, he just got his first hard-on. “Oh you mean you’re going to get offended with that?” “Who said I’m offended?” he challenged softly. “Well, you looked....it.” “What do you think a sadist like me, with all the qualities I possess, might be right now? Miriam?” He held his breath and his pulse literally beat in his cock as he waited, as he met her gaze and tasted his first real challenge with her only two feet away, in touching distance. She licked her lips but held fast to his stare which was quite impressive. “Possibly… depending on your… type, you could be…” “Aroused out of my mind?” he suggested. He had to chuckle at the look on her face. “I’m not,” he easily lied. “But you might want to reconsider this entire thing. Most sadists would be aroused with all of this and if you can’t handle that, you shouldn’t be in this field of work.”

Excerpt:

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on," I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes. There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.” “But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.” “Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins. Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won't fall in love.” Another grin. “Liar.”

One Night With a Witch By Zoe Forward Tour & Giveaway



Title: One Night With A Witch(Keepers of the Veil #5) 
Author: Zoe Forward 
Genre: Paranormal Romance 
Release Date: May 6, 2019 
Cover Designer: Quincy Marin



The last thing MI6 agent Eli Morgan expected was Pleiades witch Avery Donovan showing up to “rescue” him. Turns out she’s his biggest threat when an unexpected love spell hits them. Now he can’t keep his hands off the woman he vowed never to touch.
But something evil fights to posses Eli’s soul. The only one who can truly save him is his soulmate. Can’t be Avery. What they feel is spell-induced. Or is it?


 


He ran his thumb along her lower lip. “This mouth was mine first. It never belonged to anyone else.” Her breath caught. Blood pounded between her ears as she remembered her first kiss. With him. It’d been okay, not earth-shattering, but also not nauseating. “You want me.” His finger trekked down her neck over her pounding pulse. “No, I don’t.” “Your body says you do. Your breaths are hitched. You’re practically screaming for me to take you, and I’ve barely touched you. How’s this possible?” “It’s…” She couldn’t say it. Eli despised having them do magic on him, whether it be a spell, a potion, or even read cards about him. He pushed her away, muttering, “Magic.” Disgust twisted his lips. “What is it? A potion, an aromatic scent or… Oh, hell no. Tell me it’s not a spell.”





Award winning author Zoe Forward is a hopeless romantic who can’t decide between paranormal and contemporary romance. So, she writes both. Her novels have won numerous awards including the Prism, Readers' Choice Heart of Excellence, Golden Quill, Carolyn Readers Choice Award, and the Booksellers' Best Award.
When she’s not typing at her laptop, she’s cheering her son on at baseball, chasing the toddler or cleaning up the newest pet mess from the menagerie that occupies her house. She’s a small animal veterinarian caring for a wide range of furry creatures, although there has been the occasional hermit crab.
She’s madly in love with her globe trotting conservation ecologist husband who plans to save all the big cats on the planet, and she's happiest when he returns to their home base.
