Release Blast: Billionaire Unknown by J.S. Scott

Billionaire Unknown - Author J.S. Scott 

Harper
I was perfectly content with my life. My career was booming. I traveled. I did as much charity work as I possibly could for the homeless, and I was perfectly happy with the choices I'd made.
At least...I was--until my sister, Dani, came up missing. As an international correspondent, she traveled to war-torn countries, and she'd stepped a little too far over the line. With my sibling kidnapped and running out of time, I had no option except to approach Marcus Colter for help.
Seeing Marcus again after having him break my heart over a decade ago wasn't easy, but to my relief, the old feelings I thought I might still harbor for him were completely gone. He was like a stranger to me. After meeting with him, my only emotion was gratitude that he was going to try to rescue my sister.
Before I could relax about feeling nothing for Marcus, I met Blake Colter, and realized every emotion I thought I'd have for Marcus was suddenly present for the gorgeous US senator.
It was ridiculous. I hadn't seen Blake since we were kids.
How could I have given myself to Marcus so many years ago, yet have these feelings for his twin brother, Blake?
The more time I spent with Blake, waiting for my sister to be rescued, the more confused I became about my attraction to him.
Then, my entire world came crashing down when I found out that everything I thought was true for over a decade wasn't the truth at all.
What happens when a woman finds out that a man she'd both loved and hated for over a decade never really existed at all?

THE BACHELOR AUCTION by Rachel Van Dyken (January 31, 2017; Forever Mass Market Paperback; $7.99; The Bachelors of Arizona Book 1)



NOW IN PAPERBACK!

The first book in an all-new contemporary romance series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken.          

Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.

Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist.

Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a fa├žade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . . .

Release Blitz: No Fear by Jess Bryant




Title: No Fear
Series: Bomar Boys #3
Author: Jess Bryant
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 30, 2017



Blurb

Every small town has that one family that's more savage than civilized. The ones that are more myth and legend than man. In Old Settlers, Oklahoma that's the Bomar boys. Wild, reckless and vicious, they skirt the line of criminal and trip over it more often than not. They are their own punchline: white trash but proud beyond compare. Dirty and dangerously sexy, it's best to steer clear of them or else risk your life... and your heart. These are their stories.

Rachel Grant lives every day in fear. Scared that she'll always be the kind of girl that nobody notices. Scared that her brother will figure out quiet doesn't mean deaf or stupid and put together that she knows far more than she should. And what she knows has her fearing for her life because in a small town like Old settlers everybody knows that you don't cross the Bomar boys.

She needs help. Somebody she can trust. Somebody strong. Somebody that can protect her... and she knows just the guy.

Remy Bomar ran away from what being a Bomar meant when he was eighteen. Ten years later, he's finally come home and he's sworn that he'll do anything to take back his place within the family. He didn't protect the people he loved when he was young and he won't make the same mistake again.

When the cute, shy, girl next door looks up at him with fear in her eyes, what he feels is far from simply protective. He wants her safe but he also wants her to be his. Being a Bomar, those two things have a tendency to be mutually exclusive, particularly since his family has a traitor hell bent on hitting them where it hurts.

What happens when the truth comes out? When Remy finds out she knows far more about the threat to his family than she's been letting on? When Rachel has to choose between her family... or his? Will they find the strength they need to overcome their fears once and for all?

*No Fear is the third book in the Bomar Boys series but can be read as a stand-alone. Each book features one couple and a HEA but will build on each other so they are best read in order.

**Warning** - This book contains explicit language, sexual scenes and violence. Though not depicted, mentions of domestic violence are key to the story and can be a trigger for some.

Review


No Fear is book number three in the Bomar Boys series and in it we get older brother Remington 'Remy' Bomar's story.  Introduced to a little bit of his background in previous books, we get to dive in deeper in this book.   I love how Jess Bryant delivers us the family dynamics through each book, but also shows us how they change as each of the boys finds his "ONE" and discovers that he can choose to fight the fate he perceives is reserved for him. 

NO Fear is just as compelling a read as the previous too books, but I think I connected with Remy's story a little more than the others for the simple fact that he was quite a bit more complicated.  He's got his own demons to bear, and they aren't all about his parents or his childhood.  

I found Rachel to be extremely relatable and the type of heroine I'd want to know in real life.  She's a little on the quiet, reserved side at first, and I loved that she had this nervous energy about her, it directly contrasted with Remy's need to be in there and protect her and claim her.  I loved watching how she changed as she grew into their relationship too because it really showed how love affects us and defines our behavior in ways. 


I love the balance of emotion and steam Bryant offers in each of these stories, there is truly a change at work within each of these brothers that shows as they get to know the lucky woman they want to call theirs and as their relationships progress. They've learned a lot from the women in their lives about healthy families and how they behave and in turn have learned the kind of family they want to be.  

I have loved each and every story in this series, and am ready to learn more about the other Bomar Boys - the not-so-clean-and-nice ones.

  Exclusive Excerpt: I turn around to ask for one of his shirts and find him shirtless and tugging down his jeans. Holy back porn. It’s outlined in muscle and is a golden tan. Holy shit he has lower back dimples too. My eyes skim along his bare skin, wishing it were my hands instead. My hands strangle themselves, my mouth parting to allow the labored breathing to pass. His jeans drop to his feet, and he bends over to kick them off. That round ass on display for my pleasure. My eyes scan the white tight briefs cleaning to his tight—. Wait, are those bananas? “What are you wearing?” Using the back of my hand I try to hide my smile. Standing upright he looks over his shoulder, a devilish look crosses his face. “These?” He tugs on the elastic band of his briefs, making the banana prints dance. “They’re underwear,” he responds like I should know that. “I know they’re underwear. I just didn’t peg you for a banana-wearing kind of guy,” I laugh again. “I bring a whole new meaning to banana hammock, baby.” He turns and the smile on my face is wiped clean when I see the length and girth of that bulge in his underwear.   plus one teaser 3 About Missy Blake: Bestselling author M.N.

Blog Tour: Blood Money by Tee O'Fallon


He just might be her savior...or her downfall.


BLOOD MONEY
NYPD Blue & Gold #2
Tee O'Fallon
Releasing Jan 23rd, 2017
Entangled: Select Suspense


NYPD Detective Gray Yates has major trust issues. Protecting a serenely beautiful woman hiding enough secrets to take down an entire city wasn’t something he bargained for. She’s a loving single mother, hot as hell, and protecting her will test every ounce of his resolve.

Alex Romano is being blackmailed by the Pyramid—an elusive international organization of assassins every cop in the world is after. When Alex tries severing ties with them they refuse to let her go. The darkly dangerous detective she’s irresistibly drawn to is her only hope of staying out of jail. He just might be her savior…or her downfall.

Despite efforts to maintain his professionalism, Gray can’t deny the fiery passion Alex ignites in him. In an explosive confrontation, Alex’s lies are revealed and Gray is faced with the most important decision of his life: trust the woman he’s falling in love with, or arrest her.




Gray drove in silence, watching the farmland give way to thick forest. There was still a solid two hours before they reached Hopewell Springs. His mind wandered to the damage the Pyramid could inflict on a person’s life. They had murdered an FBI agent. How many others had they killed in the decades since their inception?
“What?” Alex interrupted his thoughts. “You had a look on your face just now. The same look you always get when you’re annoyed with someone.”
Gray glanced at her. “You know me so well?”
“Well enough.” She laughed, a melodic sound he’d come to love. “You get that look when someone is sitting at your desk and won’t talk.”
“You’ve been watching me?” Gray was pleased at the thought. He watched Alex constantly. Then again, all the detectives did. Hard not to.
“Well, I—I notice you from time to time.” A becoming shade of rosy pink tinted her cheeks, making her face even lovelier. “So tell me what you were thinking just now.”
“I was thinking about how the Pyramid will always be able to find someone they can exploit. There will always be someone out there who, whether it’s due to financial need or just plain greed, will betray anyone or anything.”
“You mean the way you think I betrayed the department...and you personally?” Alex’s voice was hard.
Gray glimpsed anger in her eyes. Anger directed at him for not believing her. They were at an impasse, he realized.
He didn’t trust her. He honestly didn’t know whether she’d used him or not, but he was certain she was still hiding something. Problem was, she didn’t trust him with whatever she was hiding.
He returned his eyes to the road, but not before seeing her lean her head back against the headrest and shut her eyes tightly. She inhaled deeply and let it out on a long sigh. If Gray hadn’t been driving, he’d have done the same.
Fate had thrown them together with the tantalizing possibility of a life together.
Circumstances had irrevocably torn them apart. 



Blood Money was my first book by Tee O'Fallon and it won't be my last.  The story flowed so beautifully, pulling all elements together and keeping me on the edge of my seat. 
Gray and Alex work together and finally, just when Gray acts on his feelings for Alex and she lets him in a little bit, things blow up in their faces leaving Gray hurt and angry and Alex in danger and caught in her past once again.  
They say the truth shall Et you free but that isn't always the case, especially not when you are drawn into the dirty deep of a huge criminal mess.  Alex has done everything she has had to to keep her son safe and well.  She's been the best mother she could be even when it meant denying who she really was and telling a few well meaning lies.  When it all comes back on her though she doesn't let it keep her from attempting to still protect her son at all costs.  
Gray has been betrayed by a woman in the past, and that betrayal left more than him hurt. So when he finally feels like he can open himself up to another woman, he's knocked aback to discover she's not at all who he thought she was.  
Blood money takes us on quite the journey, lots of twists and turns, dangerous plans and a woman bound and determined to not just keep her son safe but to prove to those shes hurt that she was on the right side all along.  Gray and Alex's connection is deep and palpable, but there are understandable complications between them as well.  I enjoyed watching as they worked together on the case and figured things out together almost as much as I enjoyed trying to piece together how and why Alex was Chosen and just what more she had hidden if her past. 

This book will suck you in completely and have you conjuring all sorts of theories and questions while also rooting for Alex.
