Release Blitz ~ Wildfire (Midnight Sun Series #3) by Lynn Burke

Title: Wildfire
Series: Midnight Sun Series #3
Author: Lynn Burke
Genre: Contemporary Romance / Suspense / Action, Adventure / Mountain Man
Release Date: February 18, 2021


A child born of the wilderness, I don’t know many women. Never had one of my own.

But sassy little Annie Charran owned my heart long before I stole her first kiss. She paid a high price for my actions, and even though I want her for life, I’ll never fit into the one she has planned for herself.

Given the opportunity to beg forgiveness, I grab it—and end up facing death.

With instincts overriding my senses, I take again.

But this time, a wildfire flares, demolishing everything in its path. Survival means sacrifice, and for me, life trumps dreams.

I’ll force Annie to give up what she wants most, even if it means I lose her forever.





 
Kelly Kemmerly – “Exhilarating from start to finish!”
Jessica Ziola-Simpson- “amazing work and well worth the read!”
Andrea Fernandez – “An absolutely phenomenal journey to go….”


“Do you still love it out here like you did when you were a kid?” I asked, hating the silence between us as we hiked away from the river.

She walked ahead of me, and I studied her profile as she gazed from left to right and back again, ever watchful as a woman of the wilderness ought to be. “It’s quiet and peaceful, but I miss the noise sometimes.”

If she missed noise, she’d never want to live in the middle of nowhere full time. “What else do you miss?” I had to ask in order to keep my hopes clamped down shut that Annie could ever be what I wanted, what I needed in a woman.

“Running water.”

“That was kinda nice,” I agreed, remembering the shower I’d enjoyed while in town. “But at least you don’t need to worry about contaminates and filtering if you’re pulling water straight from the river flowing off pristine mountains.”

“I miss not needing sunlight to fill the battery packs,” she continued as though I hadn’t pointed out a positive of living off grid. “Electricity. Hot water on demand.”

She’d had them too long to give them up for a mere chickadee like myself. I scuffed at a rock on the trail we followed.

“Fresh eggs. Chicken and beef. Refrigerator to keep wine cold.” She sighed. “A freezer.”

“The cave in the hillside does a good job,” I tossed out, desperate to find something beyond the cons.

“It’s not the same.”

We hiked the rest of the way in silence since I didn’t need to hear any more negativity over the fact that what I enjoyed, what I had, would never be enough for her. As though I needed the reminder.

Caligo
Torri Heat
(Darkling, #2)
Publication date: February 18th 2021
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Ro-mance

Ava coming to terms with Jasper and their mate bond, but now she has bigger problems. Whatever’s hunting werewolves in her small town is still on the loose. Worse yet, her parents seem to have a vendetta against Jasper.

With Jasper’s help, Ava’s embraced her Venator heritage. Good thing she has a hot werewolf to teach her everything she needs to know about fighting. But will she be strong enough for what comes next?

Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

EXCERPT:

“Here.” Jasper grinned and pointed to this throat, teeth gleaming in the dark. “Although I would prefer if you didn’t actually hit my throat tonight. They might not be sharp, but you could still do some damage. But in all seriousness, most of your targets are going to be bigger than you. You’re going to want to aim for the easiest spots that do the most damage.” He pointed to several spots on his body. “Throat. Armpits. Stomach.”

I nodded, taking the details in. “What about the back?”

Jasper shook his head. “Too many bones. Stay away from it. You probably won’thave much time to aim.” He dug in his bag again, coming up with two Bokken of his own. Jasper swung them around in the air expertly a few times, looking like he was born fighting with them. “Okay, you ready?” My stomach tightened, but I could do this. I knew I could. These blades felt like an extension of my arms already.

We started out slow. “Stay close to your opponent.” Jasper was speaking so easily he could’ve been at a party, not in the middle of sparring. “Your size will be your advantage. If you stay close, they won’t have the range to do as much dam-age.” I nodded, not enough breath left in me to respond. Soon, the talking stopped, and the pace picked up by an unspoken agreement. I found my blades easy to use, but I felt clumsy and slow compared to Jasper. It didn’t take long before Jasper had one of his swords at my neck. We were both breathing heavily, caught up in the mo- ment. “Get out of your head Green. Don’t focus on my strength, think about your speed,” he told me, pushing me a few steps away to start again.

I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. He was right. I wasn’t going to beat him with strength alone. My instincts were good, and I had to focus on that. I could do this. Turning off the logical part of my brain, I went on my in-stincts alone and dropped into a defensive stance.

Jasper mirrored my movements. “Now we’re talking.”

I focused on matching his blows with speed instead of strength. Jasper’s smile dropped, and the only sound in the dark night was the cracking of wooden blades asthey met each other. I found myself beginning to outpace Jasper’s moves, and I could see him concentrating as he tried to stay on top of things. There was nothing in my current world but me, these blades, and Jasper.

Book Blitz ~ The Virgin Hunt Games, Volume 2 by Mel Teshco #Giveaway

The Virgin Hunt Games, Volume 2
Mel Teshco
Published by: Entangled One Handed Reads
Publication date: February 15th 2021
Genres: Adult, Erotica, Romance

EARTH, YEAR 2328

The Virgin Hunt Games continues.

One innocent virgin. One jaded lothario. One dazzling fortune to the winner. But first one must survive…

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

She stood her ground as Cyodal bounded from one piece of garbage to the next. Crack. Snap. Thud. At least losing her innocence to a hunter who wasn’t her drawn mate translated to credits in her account. Maybe even as much as what keeping her virginity for as long as possible would give her.

But she’d promised her parents she’d do everything in her power to keep her innocence, and she wouldn’t go back on her word. Her parents had sacrificed so much to give her a good life, now she’d return the favor.

Cyodal landed on one end of the wire grate where she stood, his eyes glittering and his face flushed. He took a step toward her, and she automatically took a step back.

Pop.

With a gasp, she lifted her foot off the bubbling remains of grub beneath her remaining boot. The acid was already eating into the leather. Shit. Ignoring the steaming goo, she pushed the toe of her boot beneath the mass, and as Cyodal took another step toward her, she kicked the squished, oozing grub straight at the hunter.

He roared and swiped the burning splatters from his cheek, jaw, and throat…just as some kind of liquid bubbled up through his skin.

She gaped. Seriously?

His species appeared to have a self-defense mechanism against the wnagla grub, probably a sweat gland that released enough perspiration to rid itself of the acid. Not fair.

Cyodal glowered at her, then his focus dropped to her half-covered breasts in the lacy black bra. His eyes glinted as he did a slow, deliberate rub of his crotch, emphasizing the bulge that didn’t appear to have deflated one bit from his pain. “You’re going to regret that, bitch.”

She bit back a whimper as acid began burning into her flesh. Hopping on one foot, she tore off her remaining boot and sock. The hunter chuckled, clearly enjoying her pain.

She dredged up all her willpower to ignore the burn and sneer back, “You’ll have to catch me first, dickwad.”

She didn’t give him time to react. She spun, and in three strides she was free of the rotting trash. She put on a burst of speed, and in five more strides she was at the base of the stairs leading to the next level.

Too bad the shirt she’d wrapped around one foot chose that moment to unravel. She tripped and fell, jarring her shoulder and her knee against the steps. Her breath hitched then jerked out of her lungs as she was grabbed from behind and hauled against a hard chest.

Cyodal’s clawlike fingernails pushed into her shoulders to twist her around. Blood pounded like a drum in her ears when he gave a feral smile and said, “Going somewhere?”

“Not with you, she’s not.”

Cyodal’s grip tightened brutally as he spun around, putting her between him and the alien hunter he faced.

“Landry Marx,” Cyodal bit out.

EXCERPT:

We continue the kiss and she bites my lip. Hard enough to draw blood. I don’t care though. I am being a dick to her. I feel like twenty-one fucking years of frustration have finally caught up with me. I don’t know where I am or who she is, so I’m sorry she’s being forced to bear the brunt of my disappointment. If she wants to make a point with that bite, she can make her fucking point.

And when she realizes I’m not going to punish her for that little act of defiance, she relaxes underneath me. Becomes soft and compliant.

That’s the part I like best about sex. The way I can bully them into compliance.

And then her legs wrap around my hips and she begins to move with me.

That’s the signal I always wait for. That moment when they give in. Not give up.I don’t mistake her lust for defeat.

She’s just into it.

I lean down on top of her, acutely aware of how small she is compared to me. How little, and slight, and thin, and yeah… weak.

But I want her to come. She has to get something out of this, right?

I slip a hand underneath her and start playing with her ass. She’s so wet that her juices are practically spilling out of her pussy. And she must be into the ass playbecause the moment my finger enters her, she goes still and moans.

“You’re a sun-fucked asshole,” she pants. But it’s done. And she says nothing else after that. Because she’s too busy wailing in her climax.

Her body lights up. And it’s not just some random glow, either. It’s fucking spectacular. White light leaks through the pores of her skin and I know that if her eyes were open right now, she’d be aiming beams of light at me.

I come. I come hard. Grunting and pushing myself deeper and deeper inside her.

But in that moment I can see her clearly. Her glow illuminates her face and…

I let out a long breath. “Corla?”

Her eyes open. And I was right. She’s aiming her light at me. I have to close myeyes to avoid the sting of brightness.

She closes them again and the room darkens enough for me to look at her.

“Corla,” I pant, unable to believe my eyes.

“Fuck you,” she says, pushing me off her.

And I’m so stunned, I don’t resist. Just topple off to the side. She turns her backto me and I… I’m suddenly at a loss for words.

Where am I? On Harem?

“ALCOR?” I whisper out loud, hopeful. Please. Please, for the love of the sun, be here!

But there’s no answer.

I look at Corla’s back. She’s still glowing a little. The light she emits makes her whole body glisten in the returning hazy darkness.

“Fuck you. I’m going to sleep for a minute because I’m tired. Don’t wake me up.”

“Listen—”

“I said,” she growls, “I’m going to sleep for a minute. I’m fucking exhausted af-ter that light show. I just told you I didn’t like it.”

“Oh.” I’m… a little bit speechless. And now I feel bad. Guilty, actually. Because if I had known it was Corla I’d have been… gentle.

Maybe. Or maybe not. Maybe I’d have been even more of a brute?

Maybe I’d have wanted to punish her for leaving me alone to fight this war by myself twenty-one years ago.

Maybe I’d have fucked her unconscious. Or unleashed a real light show.

I know I’m not supposed to be here. I get it. I’m inside the fucking spin node. And maybe this isn’t real, but this moment feels real enough for me. It feels like a fucking gift.

She is sleeping in a bed next to me. And if I get a choice of staying here or go-ing back… well, I’m fucking staying.

Twenty-one years ago I met my soulmate. We took each other’s virginity. And then we went our separate ways.

Star-crossed. For all eternity.

I didn’t like the idea back then but let me tell you, I like it a whole lot less now.

I’m not giving her up.

I’m not leaving.

I’m not going back.

BLURB

Walker 

There’s nothing better than a packed house on a Saturday night, and co-owning the hottest restaurant and bar in town with my best friends, isn’t so bad either. We put everything into Burgers and Brew. My job is to keep the alcohol moving and the patrons coming back for more. I won’t let anyone break my focus. 

That was until I saw her. 

As much as I try, I can’t fight it. Mallory makes me crave a future I never wanted for my own. 

Now, I want it all. 


Mallory 

When I started my new job at a local specialty burger restaurant, I wasn’t expecting to find a tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome distraction in the form of Walker Meyer. He’s one of the owners, which means hands off. Only problem, it’s a lot easier said than done. 

Especially when he’s so good with my daughter. 

I try to keep him at a distance, but he’s insistent, slowly breaking down every one of my walls. He’s fighting to convince me I can trust him with not only my heart, but my daughter’s too. 

I pray he’s right.

EXCERPT

Chapter One

Walker

At exactly eleven o’clock, I slip a quarter into the old jukebox on the back wall. The bar is silent as they await tonight’s selection. My bar, my choice, and tonight, I’m feeling a little rowdy. The opening melody of “Dr. Feelgood” blasts through the speakers, resulting in a loud cheer from tonight’s patrons. As I make my way back behind the bar, I get a few high fives from the guys and even more phone numbers slipped into my palm from the ladies. I wish I could confirm they’re all single, but the truth is they’re not.
Just a typical Saturday night at Burgers and Brew, the place I co-own with my three best friends. We all have our forte within the business, and mine’s behind the bar. Mixing drinks and slinging beers. That’s my life, and damn, what a life it is.
I slap Jasper on the back as I slide under the bar and jump right back in to filling drink orders. Everyone’s singing along, word for word to the ol’ 80’s hair band tune, as part of our weekend ritual. It’s an ode, a salute to our college days and the band we all grew up listening to. We built this business, taking an old brick building in downtown Stewart Grove and turning it into a staple.
Jasper’s the man in the kitchen, the one who comes up with the mouthwatering burger creations we’re known for. Isaac is the numbers guy, the man who keeps us in the black and our taxes completed on time. Jameson’s the muscle because he’s big and tattooed. But he’s more than that. Jameson is talented as fuck with a guitar and serves as our house musician Friday and Saturday nights. Then there’s me. Walker Meyer, bartender extraordinaire, who keeps the beer flowing, the panties melting, and the tips rolling in.
We’re the Brew Crüe, and damn proud of it.
“Dance, dance, dance, dance,” the crowd starts to chant, encouraging me to do what I do every weekend when we play Mötley Crüe.
Dance.
When I glance over at Jasper, he’s already shaking his head, but there’s no missing his wide grin. He knows what’s coming. Placing my hands on the bar top, I jump, hoisting myself up on the aged oak. Patrons erupt into cheers as I grin down at them. Mostly, at the ladies. The single ones and even the not-so-single ones. No, I’m not taking any of them home, but that doesn’t mean I can’t give them one hell of a show.
I twist my ballcap around so it’s on backward and start to swing my hips. Mama blessed me with moves, which helps almost double my tips every night. Women go crazy for a man who can dance. That’s evident by the number of panties that’ll be thrown behind the bar in a matter of moments.
Swaying my hips, I do a little dip and grind, popping my ass out and sending the ladies in the front row into cardiac arrest. They scream and reach for my pant legs, digging their nails into the denim. Instead of shaking them off, I wink and carefully walk a few steps away. Then, when we get to the refrain in the song, I throw my arms out to the side and belt out the words, everyone singing along with me.
It’s like karaoke.
But better.
As the song winds down, I steal the drink in Jasper’s hand and hold it up over my head. Everyone in the bar does the same. We sing. I dance and drink. The panties start flying.

When gruesome tragedy uncovers a serial killer’s twisted agenda, Daughter and Dolan must cling to each other if they hope to survive. Can they stop the body count from rising? Or will they find their only purpose from the start was to be pawns in a reign of evil?

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

She wanted more. All of it. Hand-holding and kissing and long, lazy lovemaking. She opened her eyes and hoped he could read her feelings in them. The next two years were going to be torture, and it was all her fault.

His face was naked with longing, desire, deep affection. It was beautiful to see this powerful man baring his emotions to her. Emotions that had everything to do with her, with wanting her. It was a heady drug, one she wanted to overdose on. If she never saw him after today, she’d forever remember the way he looked at her right now, like she was his entire universe.

He slid his hand into her hair, the movement causing a rash of goose bumps to break out all over her body. “I’m sorry for breaking the rules. I take all the blame.”

She opened her mouth to ask him what rule he’d broken, just as his lips landed on hers. The world fell out from under her. She grabbed on to him to keep from falling, latching onto his shirt and yanking him closer. His arms clamped around her, holding her even tighter to him, and the raw male strength of his body against hers was a revelation. Heat radiated off him like he was her own personal sun.

And then his tongue was in her mouth—warm and tasting like a wish. The salt of her tears mingled to make this kiss the one that all other kisses would be measured by.

And then it was over and he was pulling away. She wanted to beg him to keep kissing her, and maybe the world and the two years separating them would disappear.

He looked down at her, his face ravaged by the war raging inside him, the same one inside her—the nearly overwhelming need to be together, the rules be damned.

He stared at her for an endless moment, a muscle in his jaw ticking, then turned and walked to his car.

Tears flowed as she watched him drive away. At the end of the parking lot, he stopped before pulling out onto the road. She couldn’t see inside the car, but knew he was watching her in the rearview mirror. A sob choked in her throat. If she cried any harder, he’d turn around and come back for her, but she couldn’t let him.

He drove out of the parking lot and out of her life. She turned to her car and saw the bouquet he’d given her sitting on the roof.

She mashed her face in the pretty flowers and watered them with her tears.

Author Bio:

Seven Things about Abbie Roads:
1. She loves Snicker Parfaits. Gotta start with what’s most important, right?
2. She writes dark emotional books featuring damaged characters, but always gives her hero and heroine a happy ending… after torturing them for three hundred pages.
3. By day she’s a mental health counselor known for her blunt, honest style of therapy. At night she burns up the keyboard. Well… Burn might be too strong a word. She at least sits with her hands poised over the keyboard, waiting for inspiration to strike. And when it does–the keyboard might get a little warm.
4. She can’t stand it when people drive slowly in the passing lane. Just saying. That’s major annoying. Right?
5. She loves taking pictures of things she thinks are pretty.
6. She lives in Marion, Ohio with her favorite fellow and two fur babies.
7. Being a published author is a dream come true for her.

A child born of the wilderness, I don’t know many women. Never had one of my own.

But sassy little Annie Charran owned my heart long before I stole her first kiss. She paid a high price for my actions, and even though I want her for life, I’ll never fit into the one she has planned for herself.

Given the opportunity to beg forgiveness, I grab it—and end up facing death.

With instincts overriding my senses, I take again.

But this time, a wildfire flares, demolishing everything in its path. Survival means sacrifice, and for me, life trumps dreams.

I’ll force Annie to give up what she wants most, even if it means I lose her forever.
