RELEASE: Heartbeat Girl by Michelle Gross

Title: Heartbeat Girl: A Vampire rock band romance

Author: Michelle Gross
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: December 5, 2021
Cover Design: LJ Anderson from Mayhem Cover Creations
 
Desperate times call for daring measures.
At least that’s what I tell myself for packing up and hitting the road with America’s newest and most popular rock band, The Oppressors. The lanky tattooed men are suspicious. Before I stepped on the bus with them, they’ve always made me nervous.
Something’s not adding up, though. There are strange events I’m noticing around them.
1. The hazy, vacant stare of the woman in their dressing room.
2. And the blood on her shirt.
3. The beat less sound of Liam’s heart when I lay my head on his chest.
I don’t think it’s safe to be close with the band, and most certainly not fall in love with one. So why do they make me feel like I’m a part of them? Their close-knitted trio.
What happens when I figure out what I’m dying to know?
This is a dual POV steamy vampire romance standalone that centers around bonds of love and friendship. 18+ dark, explicit sexual scenes, and lots of blood.
 
 
 
 
His jaw tightened. “You’ve been distant with me from the very beginning.”
 
“Hello. You’re not special. I’m distant with everyone. Do you see any friends around me, Liam? Do you see me call family or anyone besides those I’m supposed to?”
His eyes darkened. “I’m not special?”
Like the glassy expression in his azure gaze, his voice dripped with something sinister. I made a mistake. When he wedged his knee between my thighs, I knew he had a point to make. That he differed from everyone else.
“What are you doing?” I gasped as his leg rose further, forcing the tight skirt I wore to glide up. A fluttery feeling settled in my stomach. But there was also an urgent throb in my clit, especially when his thigh pressed against it. Oh, God. My face was so hot. My body was even hotter. What was happening?
He leaned down and whispered in my ear, “You think you can hide that from me?”
My ear and neck tingled. I didn’t know what that was until he moved his leg against me.
“That’s inappropriate,” I whispered.
He leaned his weight into me, so I felt his erection. “Does it feel like I want to be appropriate with you, Jayne?”
 
 
 
 
Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where possums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.

As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.

The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.

The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.

Title: Roman’s War

Series: Riot MC Biloxi Series Book 3
Author: Karen Renee
Genre: MC Romance (can be read as standalone)
Release Date: November 18, 2021
 
 
She’s playing with fire, but to win Roman’s heart, she’s willing to take her chances.
Time is running out for Trinity Benoit. She must get married to claim her grandfather’s legacy. In her family’s social circle, any man interested in her is only after the inheritance. Not to mention, those men aren’t her type.
Always attracted to bad boys, Roman Sanchez steals Trinity’s attention the day she lays eyes on him.
Nothing goes to plan when she approaches Roman with her proposal.
As the pyrotechnic expert for the Riot MC Biloxi chapter, Roman defends his brotherhood against any threats. He’s no stranger to bar brawls or street fights. Yet, he faces an epic battle against a woman who could send him to prison.
To protect himself and his club, he agrees to marry her.
It isn’t until after they say, ‘I do,’ that Roman discovers there’s more to his wife than blackmail and extortion. If Roman isn’t careful, he may find himself committed to something bigger (and possibly even better) than the Riot MC brotherhood.
Will Roman desert Trinity as soon as he’s fulfilled their bargain? Or will he find himself one of the ‘mighty’ who fall prey to love’s force?

When she’s not at the soccer field or cooking, you can find her at her local library, the grocery store, in her car jamming out to some tunes, or hibernating while she writes and/or reads books.

Another night out on the town in New York City with her roommate, what could go wrong for Simone?

Waking up in a strange bed, stranding her with the bar’s known player after a major snowstorm, would do it.

What’s a girl to do when they’re snowed in for several days? What’s a girl to do when she starts falling for the player? What should Simone do when she’s unsure of which girl she is of the many romance stories she narrates for a living? Is she the girl being played before the guy finds his true love? Or, is Simone the girl who gets the guy?

“I feel like I’m in the middle of my own twisted, real-life romance story but I’m too scared to know the outcome. Which girl am I? Am I the girl being played who end up with her heart broken? Or, am I the girl who gets the guy?”

(Note: Simone is the older sister of Harper from my short story One Kiss that was featured in the Because Beards anthology.)

Cyber Monday Blitz: A Snowflake Christmas by Vickey Wollan

Title: A Snowflake Christmas
Author: Vickey Wollan
Genre: Christmas Contemporary Romance
Published: August 7, 2020

It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but … Dr. Alan Garcia uproots his practice in Miami to Snowflake, Montana, hoping to escape career-ending false-accusations and find a fresh start in the small mountain town. Alan isn’t looking for love, but when Rachel Welch brings her nephew in for an office visit, her neighborly generosity and family-first philosophy moves his heart like no woman he’s previously known.
 
Rachel Welch, a native of Snowflake, has suffered from PTSD ever since the car accident that seriously injured her parents. Dr. Garcia is her best hope to find relief from panic attacks, but one look into his dark eyes and Rachel knows that a doctor-patient dynamic is far from the relationship she wants.
 
With Christmas right around the corner, maybe Rachel and Alan’s snowballing romance will survive Alan’s pride, Rachel’s fears, and Snowflake’s rumors. That is – if spending time together outside of the office doesn’t get them both fired first.

 
 
Vickey Wollan caught the writing bug in elementary school, and her thirst for reading novels started in junior high. Although her career included journalistic and public relations writing, she recently jumped with both feet into writing romance stories.

She writes heartwarming, sweet, contemporary romances that tickle the funny-bone and wrap up with an always satisfying happily ever after.

Vickey lives in Central Florida, but her travels inspire her stories. She likes the outdoors and sports so she creates heroines who are strong and multi-talented, but are still attracted to sexy modern men who appreciate the love of a capable woman.

With a background in wellness, she allows her creativity to emerge during a good workout. When not writing, she enjoys reading, hiking through the beauty of nature, or chilling-out with her husband.

She appreciates hearing from readers. Reach out to her at vickeywollanauthor@yahoo.com

TOUR: The Ripening: A Canadian Girl Grows Up by Lily Iona MacKenzie

Title: The Ripening: A Canadian Girl Grows Up

Author: Lily Iona MacKenzie
Genre: New Adult/Adult Coming of Age Novel
Paperback Release Date: October 15, 2021
eBook Release: November 14, 2021
 
 
 

‘This is not necessarily a ‘light’ read, but if you’re interested in beautifully written literary fiction, are interested in people and what shapes them to become who they are, or even just want to read something that is structurally interesting in terms of how it all fits together, then I highly, highly recommend The Ripening!’ – Goodreads Review (John Wigglesworth)

 
 
Sexual awakening can be messy business.
Tillie Bishop never knew her father, and when her mother abandons her, Tillie quickly becomes streetwise. Even in Calgary, forces of the coming 1960s—a decade of rebellion, discovery, and upheaval—are already at work within her. As a Canadian Girl in Training, she’s tried to follow their Christian guidelines, but she prefers to make up her own. She smokes cigarettes in the church bathroom during the group’s meetings and plays kissing games afterward with neighborhood boys. Barely a teenager, glamour becomes her new guiding star, and she fantasizes about a future of dating men and having sex.
 
At seventeen, during a stay in Toronto, she becomes a band groupie and throws herself into the “sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll” scene—just what she she’s been looking for. Then, seeking more adventure, she moves to San Francisco, drawn to its psychedelic night life, leading to a deeper downward spiral. However, Tillie’s grit and ability to face life’s challenges are inspiring, the seeds for later discovering her artist self.
 
Tillie takes readers on a wild ride through a period of riotous personal and cultural change. Join her if you dare!
 
 
 

Tillie was in bed, drifting off to sleep, holding onto Bleek. The dogs started barking, the sound reverberating off the window and waking her. The dogs were always chasing things in the night—images from their dreams. She drifted off again. 

Then she was awake. Wide awake. She heard someone pounding on the door downstairs, and a man shouted, “For Christ’s sake woman, don’t you know your house is on fire?” 

Mama shrieked, “Dad, get Tillie.” 

Heavy boots sounded on the kitchen floor. The screen door squeaked and slammed shut several times. Another unfamiliar voice shouted, “We need lots of water. Alan, start pumping. Lloyd, start a bucket brigade. Murray, get the goddamn hose!” 

Tillie could smell smoke, and it scared her. Headlights leaped across the bedroom wall, chasing the dark away, and tires ground on gravel. Cars pulled into the yard. Their doors slammed. More shouts. Voices yelling. She couldn’t understand what they were saying. 

Tillie wanted to sleep again, but the door opened, and smoke float- ed into the room. Her grandpa stood there, coughing, a halo of light surrounding him. He was wearing only his dark trousers and white undershirt. The black suspenders cut into his shoulder, his gray hair stood straight up like a rooster’s comb, and his eyes bulged, red crowding out the white. He said, “Get out. We don’t have time to waste.” 

Tillie held back. All the rooms she had lived in since she was born marched in front of her. One had no windows—only a grimy skylight. Another had cockroaches. They crawled out of every crack. None of these places ever felt like a real home. Not until she and her mama had moved to the house on Harold’s farm that Tillie had grown to love, especially its big pantry. Shelves were filled with sealers of food she had helped to can: chickens, beets, dill pickles, beans, and sauerkraut. They never needed to worry about going hungry here. 

Tillie didn’t want to lose all of this.
Grandpa said, “Get a move on!”
She dove under her pillow, grabbed Bleek, and followed her grandpa. The smoke was getting thick now, and she coughed, waving her arms around, trying to push it away. Grandpa stopped in the kitchen and grabbed Rich from Mama. Then he took the kids to the car and put them inside it. He said, “You two wait here. Don’t leave till I come get you!” 

They both stared out the car windows, screaming. Smoke hung over everything. Harold appeared suddenly and then floated into the house on a wave of smoke. Mama flickered in and out of view, still wearing her bathrobe and slippers. In the barn, the cattle kicked against the walls. And the chickens screeched louder than when Tillie had accidently ridden Smokey into the hen house. The dogs crouched at the edge of the yard and barked constantly. 

Neighbor men and women rushed into the house and grabbed clothes, dishes, and furniture. They dropped them in the yard and went back for more. The flames now were lashing out and taking large bites from the roof. It looked like a dragon was attacking the place. Sparks sent shooting stars into the night sky, but Tillie couldn’t tear her eyes away from the fire. The flames changed shape, reminding her of clouds and all the images they made. It was beautiful. Though she was screeching, and tears ran down her face, the scene thrilled her. 

Then the fire was over, and Tillie didn’t feel excited any longer. The flames had swallowed the house, not leaving much behind. Just some charred clumps. Rich had fallen asleep, but Tillie couldn’t stop staring, waiting for their house to appear again. 

It didn’t. 

Smoke still filled the night sky, and its smell was everywhere. It followed them for months. Everything they rescued stank like smoke. Tillie felt as if she’d been roasted over a fire. It took a long time to get over the shock of seeing their home destroyed and how quickly things can change.

Goodreads Review – “Karen Renee’s latest Riot MC novel may be her best yet.”

Goodreads Review – “My goodness what a read.”

Goodreads Review – “Trinity is probably my favorite of this series so far. This is definitely a page turner.”

“Hello, Mamá,” he said, once he’d opened the door.

Hijo! What a lovely surprise.”

Trinity moved in front of him. “Marie, what brings you by?”

Mamá pushed her way forward and Roman closed the door behind her. He noticed her holding Trinity’s hand.

“I never got a chance to look at your rings, querida. Que bonita!

Before he could say a word, Mamá whirled and grabbed his hand. “Y tu? Where’s your ring?”

“It’s being sized,” Trinity chirped.

He glared at her, but the effect was lost on her. 

“I gave the jeweler the wrong size.”

A knowing gleam hit Mamá’s eyes, but she cleared it before turning to Trinity. “You should’ve asked. I could have given you his ring size.”

“You could?” Roman asked.

She grinned at him.

Trinity asked, “What really brings you by, Marie? It wasn’t just to check out my bling.”

Mamá’s grin didn’t fade as she looked to Trinity. “Just checking in on my newlyweds. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am.”

Trinity frowned. “You heard Roman yesterday, Marie. This isn’t that. Not in that—” 

Mamá laughed. “Your bedroom may not border my unit, querida, but you were loud earlier. So, I don’t want to hear it from either of you.”

She turned back to him. “Hijo, make your wife happy. And by happy, I mean pregnant. Quiero ser una abuela antes de morir.

Through gritted teeth, he said, “You’re not going to die anytime soon. Not if I have anything to do with it.”

She patted his cheek. “I won’t live to ninety either, Anton. Good night.”

When the door closed, Trinity spoke. “That’s mortifying. I don’t know a ton of Spanish, but I do know what an abuela is. She wants us to make a baby? And for the love of God, she heard me!”

His dick twitched at the thought of hearing her again. Since he hadn’t added condoms to his wallet, he wouldn’t be led around by his dick.

Excerpt 6 [Roman] (380 words):

He couldn’t decide what to do. Every instinct told him to run after Trinity, but he was too angry. All of his anger was directed at his mother, and he didn’t want to take it out on Trinity.

“Did you have to be so vicious?”

Her hand went to her chest. “Me? How could you not have been so vicious?” She laughed bitterly. “Don’t answer that. I know why. You were thinking with your cock.”

“I wasn’t.”

“I’ve seen you when you don’t use your brain, Anton. I don’t believe you’re using your right mind.”

“Because maybe I love her,” he said.

“There are no maybes about love. That’s proof I’m right. How could you love someone like her?”

Disbelief washed over him and his eyes widened. “You’re wrong. And what other kind of woman would garner my love? Or yours? And you can’t deny that shit. You said it yourself. You think of her as your own.”

“Not anymore.”

“Bullshit. Only a woman who had the same amount of spirit and drive as Aurelia would get your stamp of approval.”

She pointed a finger at him. “Don’t bring up your sister. She was nothing like that conniving woman.”

He shook his head. “You calm down and really think about what you’re saying about Trinity, you’ll know that simply isn’t true.”

Her stern eyes held his. “You calm down and really think about what you said, and you’ll know you aren’t actually in love. Neither one of you would know love if it bit you on the ass.”

It killed him how similar he was to his mother. The stubbornness, the hot-headed temper, and that need to be right. In this case though, she was definitely wrong.

He shrugged a shoulder. “If I don’t love her, then why did it feel like she ripped into my chest when she mentioned divorce? Why did I feel ten feet taller hearing that she loved me?” His voice lowered to a whisper. “Why was my first thought, will Mamá give me her wedding bands so I can put them on Rin’s finger?”

Mamá moved as though he’d struck her. 

He smiled. “Yeah, let that sink in. Don’t ever tell me I’m thinking with my dick. You and Dad raised me better than that.”

Ari
 
I vowed to never share my bed with another woman…until I met Sarah Greene. Everything with Sarah was perfect…
Until my past came back and threatened to destroy us.
And take away the one other person I love with my heart and soul.
 
Sarah
 
I vowed to only sleep with a man I loved. I fell hard for Ari Golden and thought he’d be my forever…
Until I learned a secret.
Now, I have to make a life or death decision. If I choose wrong, we will lose everything.
And everyone we love.

“Oh, princess, if anything ever happened to you…”

Ari’s voice trailed off. The love this gorgeous man felt for me overwhelmed me. Beneath my fingertips, I could feel the horrible scar left behind by his pyscho-ex. I rubbed it gently. A caress. The words of my mother floated in my head. Fight for what you want. And for whom you want. Suddenly, I was Sarah, Warrior Princess.

“Ari, I’ll never leave you again. Never.

“Sarah,” he whispered back. “You’re mine. Only mine.”
