Release Blitz: One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti

New Release: One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti
One Little Lie by Whitney Barbetti
Genre: New Adult
Blurb:
Adam Oliver hated me. Loathed my very existence. He had every right to, but that didn’t make my life any easier the afternoon I had to rescue him on the side of the road. But worse than rescuing a guy who hated me to his core was the lie I told my parents. Because I’d just told them that my long-term boyfriend was finally back in town. My long-term boyfriend who didn’t actually exist. The one named Adam Oliver—the guy I’d crushed on all through high school. So the real Adam had no idea that he and I were engaged in a years-long, committed, serious relationship. And, somehow, some way, I needed to convince him to play along with my one little lie.

Blog Tour: Raphael by Tillie Cole





































They are the Fallen. A brotherhood of murderers whose nature compels them to kill. But guided by their leader, Gabriel, the Fallen have learned to use their urges to rid the world of those it is better off without.




For Raphael, sex and death are intertwined. Where there is one, there must be the other. He is a lust killer, luring his victims with the face of an angel and a body built for sin.




And Raphael lives to sin.




His newest mission takes him into the sadistic underworld of Boston’s secret sex clubs, and puts him face to face with his greatest fantasy made flesh.




Maria is everything he’s ever dreamed of, the kill he’s always longed for. She’s not his target. And he knows he must resist. But the temptation is too strong…




Yet Raphael is not the only one with a mission. Maria is not quite what she seems. And as her secrets and Raphael’s unravel, Maria begins to question everything she thought she knew—about evil, about the place she calls home, and about the beautiful sinner she was sent to destroy.




Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.




The Fallen: Genesis a prequel novella in The Deadly Virtues Series and MUST be read before RAPHAEL (DV: book one).












Father Murray’s eyes locked on the woman again as she was released from the metal cage and brought into her lover’s embrace. The man slammed his mouth against hers and thrust his fingers into her overused pussy. They were dressed in scandalous leather outfits that did little to conceal their bodies. Father Murray’s lip curled in disgust. The man pulled back and made for the bar. His slut’s cheeks were flushed, and her lips were swollen from the claiming kiss. She had red marks littering her body like the witch she was. Bruises and gashes from whips and chains and whatever else the male sinner had used on her flesh.

Flesh that belonged to the Lord, not her. Flesh that she was defiling, making a mockery of.

As Father Murray sipped on his water, he noticed the whore was walking to the bathrooms. His eyes tracked her across the room, then scanned the club for any sign that someone else would follow. But the heathens were too busy fornicating to notice or care. His heart kicked into a sprint; she was alone in the bathroom. He squeezed the bottle of water until it was crushed beneath his grasp.

Father Murray’s skin burned as he watched the door of the bathroom. His muscles tensed so tightly they felt as though they would snap. His eyes misted with red . . . and then he was moving. He let the Lord fill his senses and gave over control.

Do with me what you will. Use me as your vessel to destroy the evil walking this earth.

As quick as a shadow, Father Murray turned the knob of the bathroom door and walked inside. The whore stood in front of the mirror, wiping a cloth along her rancid pussy. She turned her eyes his way. What first seemed like shock at the interruption turned into heated interest.

“Can I help you?” Her voice was all seduction. The voice of the devil, Father Murray thought. A living temptation trying to sway me from the path.

It would only make her cleansing all the more powerful.

Father Murray licked his lips and pushed his jaw-length dark hair from his eyes. He saw the whore’s eyes flare. That was the reason he was picked for these missions. Father Quinn had told him God gave him his looks and body for this very reason. To ensnare impure sluts and send them to the depths of hell where they belonged and would dwell for eternity.

Silently, Father Murray turned, giving the slightest nudge of his head in instruction for her to follow. He didn’t look back, and the thumping music from the speakers in the club meant he couldn’t hear her high-heeled feet on the floor. But he knew she would follow. It was God’s will.

These missions were the Brethren’s very reason for existing.

Father Murray exited out of the back door and down the winding fire escape stairs. A metal door plunged him into the darkness of the alley outside. He stopped against the wall and waited. He smirked when the fire door opened and the slut walked through. He watched as her eyes squinted in the dark, searching for him. She smiled when she caught sight of his intense gaze fixed on her. “You like privacy, huh?” she asked, coming to stand before him. “Not into public displays?” She smiled. “You should try it. There’s nothing like all eyes on you as you come.”

The whore ran her long fingernail down Father Murray’s chest. Her touch did nothing to him. There was no stirring in his cock, no satisfaction from her attention. The bitch had no idea what turned him on.

She would soon.

She dropped her hands to the fly of his pants and undid his zipper. Her tongue snaked out and licked along her too-white teeth. The whore was a demon wrapped in attractive female flesh.

But she wouldn’t make this man of God sin.

Father Murray grabbed the top of the whore’s arms, spun her, and smacked her back against the wall. An innocent soul would feel fear, dislike of the rough contact. But not this slut. She smiled, enjoying the pain Father Murray’s aggressive grip brought.

Heathen. A heathen who deserves to die.

“Are you gonna fuck me or what?” she whispered in his ear. The whore lifted her hand and flipped her hair back over her shoulder, aiming for seductiveness. Father Murray knew the movement was a message from the Lord. An invitation to strike, to do his work of ridding the world of sinners.

Father Murray smiled; the whore smiled back. He didn’t bother to tuck his cock back into his pants. Instead, he ran his hands over her hell-created curves, listening to her moan. His fingers roved over her small waist and up over her large breasts. Finally, his hands rested on either side of her neck. Father Murray stared right into the whore’s eyes. Leaning in close, he whispered, “You are a blight on the world. You have no place on this earth . . . and I shall be the holy warrior to send you back to the second level of hell.” Her eyes only had a second to flare with fear before Father Murray began to squeeze. The whore’s mouth dropped open as she quickly became starved of breath.


Father Murray hadn’t been aroused by the whore’s touch. But now, with his hands ridding her of life, his dick was hard and throbbing with the need to release. He panted as the whore’s body began to fight back. But she was too weak; he was too strong. He pressed his wide chest against her tits and pushed her hard into the wall. The friction of her skin against his erection only heightened his excitement. Father Murray rocked against the front of her bare pussy, his hands tightening and tightening until the whore’s eyes began to bulge. She clawed at his chest. But the battle, the pain she was trying to inflict on his pure soul, only made his hold around her neck tighten.


REVIEW

I feel it imperitive to start this review with a warning - a Danger Danger Will Robinson warning - if you will.  This book is not for the faint hearted, not for those with triggers and definitely not for anyone who wants light and fluffy.  BUT if you are willing to take a chance on embracing the dark for just a bit, Tillie Cole will suck you in and leave you amazed at her story telling. 

Raphael and Maria's story is dark, gritty, and raw but also sexy and enthralling - once you start you won't want to put it down.  I don't want to go into to much of the story because I don't want to chance saying something I shouldn't so instead I'm going to be vagueish.  You'll thank me for that when you read it yourself. 

As one would expect this isn't your normal romance and yet - you will still find yourself believing in it falling in love with it.  Raphael is quite the character and even when he did things that made me cringe, I couldn't find the will to turn away.  Raphael knows evil, he's lived it, he's survived it, but it's formed it, it's stained him.  Maria was an interesting character as well, one who herself has been through a lot.  I really liked these two together and how Cole wove their story.

Release Blitz: The Kiss Plot by Nicole French








Jane and Eric de Vries.
Often enemies. Sometimes lovers.
Husband and wife. Or are we?

I wore the dress. We said the vows.
And somehow it became more than just a stunt to collect his billions.
A promise bound by love, not hate.
Until he humiliated me in front of all of New York and disappeared.

Now my errant husband has returned, and it's like I never existed.
Except when he looks at me like he wants to rip my dress from my body.
Something's holding him back. And I won't rest until I discover its cause.

See, this wild heir is about to find out: karma's a fickle mistress.
My weapons? Batting eyelashes, high heels, and that red lipstick he can't resist.
I'll break down his mask, little by little. And then I'll make him pay for what he did.
I just need to keep my heart in check while I do it.



AVAILABLE NOW

 Amazon AU | Apple | Nook | Kobo




REVIEW


If I thought The Hate Vow had twists and turns, well this book has even more and it's filled with more drama, more emotion and still lots of steam.  Eric and Jane's relationship isn't quite what most would find normal - there's a lot of push and pull there, more so than most, but there's also a depth of connection that just works for them and goes to show how much they really work together.  


The Kiss Plot grabbed my attention even further and entrenched me into the world in which Jane and Eric are involved, from the good to the bad and the even worse, I went through a gamut of emotions with these characters and was left anxious for more.  Questions were answered, but more formed in my mind and I found myself not knowing what was going to come next.  

Nicole French has woven the threads of this story so well together that even when I wanted to hit someone or yell, I still couldn't walk away because of a desperate need to see things play out as they will. I couldn't wait to see how things worked out between Jane and Eric and if they could overcome everything thrown their way and work together to move forward.  I need to know the rest of the story, to see things through and get all of the answers.  

If you are looking for a story with suspense, drama, love, hate, secrets and more - look no further than this series, but be warned they'll suck you in and leave you desperate for more. 


Eric de Vries.
Looks like millions. Worth billions.
A body like the David with a mind to match.
Unfortunately for this wayward heir, to keep his money, he needs a wife.
And of all the women in the world, he chooses me.

Too bad I've hated him for five years, since he took all my tears and tossed me away. The guy slept his way through half of New England and discarded women like hotel toiletries.
Been there. Done that.

Still...what would you do for twenty million dollars?
Would you wear the dress?
Fake a smile for the man who broke your heart?
Or would you run far, far away?

Yeah, that's what I thought.
I'll see you at the church.


THE HATE VOW AVAILABLE NOW HERE



REVIEW


I've long been a fan of the fake engagement/marriage/ Marriage of convenience trope. This book had extra drama in addition to that which made it all the more enticing to me. 

Eric de Vries finds himself in quite the situation when he returns home after many years away to the family he left behind, for good reasons. He shouldn't be shocked at the reason for his return but he is. To say Eric's family relationships are complicated is putting it very lightly - but digging in to the depths of those complications really drew me in further to the man. 

Jane Lefferts has her own complicated history with Eric and finds herself on the other end of a shocking proposal from him. I really loved Jane - from moment one when we meet her on the page, she called to me as a woman who did her own thing and though she had worries, she didn't let them overrun her life on the daily. 

I adore the interactions between Jane, the banter, the "hate", and everything in between just built up the story and kept my attention. I couldn't wait to see what would come their way next and how they'd handle it. 

There's more to this story than a rich boy doing his family's bidding and a woman accepting a bargain for all the wrong (or are they right) reasons. There's secrets and pain and loss and so much more twisted into a story that will keep you hooked













Nicole French is an East Coast/West Coast hybrid creature, Springsteen fanatic, hopeless romantic, and total bookworm.

When not writing fiction or teaching writing classes, she is hanging out with her family, playing soccer with the rest of the thirty-plus crowd in Seattle, or going on dates with her husband.

In her spare time, she likes to go running with her dog, Greta, or practice the piano, but never seems to do either one of these things as much as she should.



Cover Reveal: Wild Steamy Hook-Up by Piper Rayne







He’s the quiet brooding guy who’s owned my heart since I was sixteen but has refused to claim it.

I’m the na├»ve woman who believes that someday our time will come.

I just didn’t realize that someday would include waking up in Vegas with a raging hangover and a ring on my finger.

If we believed in fate, maybe one of us would’ve trusted that something more powerful than ourselves interceded because our love is one of tangled vines. As twisted and frayed as they’ve become over the years, they’ve never broken.

An annulment seemed like the easy way out. We should’ve known it wouldn’t be fate that intervened, but our Italian Mamas. They can deliver Oscar-worthy performances when heaping on the guilt.

We thought it’d be easy to pretend to be a happily married couple in front of our families for three months and then say we gave it our best shot and go our separate ways.

But nothing is easy when it comes to Dominic Mancini and me. Nothing.

REVIEW

Changing Lines was a fun foray back into the world of Claire and Jude and the rest of their families.  We got glimpses of how life has changed for all of the characters and a deeper look at the future of Jude and Claire and their own family.  

Aleo dove into this emotional tale with grace and emotions, exploring a sometimes untalked about topic and bringing it new life with these characters.  I loved reading this story and how it connected these characters and brought life to their struggle which is a big in real life struggle. 

Jude and Claire have been through a lot and survived and this story not only shows that but also gives them more to look forward to.  


About the Author:
My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
