A Veil of Veins by Tillie Cole is LIVE!

To most people, princes, princesses, counts and dukes are found only in the pages of the most famous of fairytales. Crowns, priceless jewels and gilded thrones belong only in childhood dreams.
But for some, these frivolous fancies are truth.
For some, they are real life.
On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, people have always treated me as someone special. All because of my ancestral name and legacy. All because of a connection I share to our home country’s most important family of all.
I am Caresa Acardi, the Duchessa di Parma. A blue blood of Italy. I was born to marry well. And now the marriage date is set.
I am to marry into House Savona. The family that would have been the royals had Italy not abolished the monarchy in 1946. But to the aristocrats of my home, the abolition means nothing at all.
The Savonas still hold power where it counts most.
In our tight-knit world of money, status and masked balls, they are everything and more.
And I am soon to become one of them.
I am soon to become Prince Zeno Savona’s wife…
… or at least I was, until I met Achille.
And everything changed.

I opened the window beside me and stared at the illuminated entrance. I swallowed hard and placed my empty glass on the bar. Metal groaned, breaking through the twilight, as the massive black wrought-iron gates began to open. The limo slowly pulled onto the property’s lane, and I drank in the thick forest that shielded the estate. I inhaled the freshness of the lush green trees. The unpolluted sky was thick with stars—not a single cloud in sight.
A few minutes later, the thick woods cleared, and I gasped. Acres and acres of gold and green vineyards covered the landscape. The scents of plump grapes and damp soil permeated the warm air. I closed my eyes. It reminded me of being a child. It brought me back to the days before I was taken to New York. I could still feel the heat of the Emilia-Romagna sun on my face, the deep smell of olives, grapes and flowers drifting in the breeze as I ran around our Parma estate.
I smiled a nostalgic smile and allowed my eyes to drift open again. I rested my arms on the window and leaned my chin on them as the limo drove on. There were several small villas peppered over the landscape, their lights twinkling in the distance. They must have been the winemakers’ residences. It was not only the Bella Collina merlot that was made on this land; other reds were too—particularly the Chianti from the region’s finest Sangiovese grapes. The Bella Collina olive oil was also up there with the best. But nothing compared to the famed merlot.
The limo turned right, and my breath caught in my throat. I lifted my head and stared disbelievingly at the property ahead. Bella Collina was a veritable Palace of Versailles tucked away in the Umbrian wilderness.
“Mio Dio,” I whispered as I took in the imposing stone structure, the sweeping steps and the vast number of windows set in the building’s walls. Large pillars of red-veined marble flanked the entrance. Cypress trees framed the estate as if it were the shining star of a fine Renaissance painting. Sculptures of famed Savona monarchs of old stood proudly on the manicured lawns, and strategically placed lighting illuminated the sheer perfection of every piece of topiary.
As a child, I had been to the Palazzo Savona in Florence. It was widely regarded to be one of the finest estates in all of Italy, if not western Europe. But this . . . this . . . there were no words. It was perfectly placed, as if it had always been there. As if it had grown naturally from the Umbrian earth just as sure as the vines and woods that kept this architectural treasure hidden from view.

A must-read that will have you questioning all your emotions as you fall in love with this unforgettable story.” – New York Times bestselling author, AL Jackson

From New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams comes a powerhouse romantic suspense that will have you questioning your morals and second guessing your view on love.

I live in a world few know exist. I’ve trained for this. I know what to say, what to do, and how to act. I’ve perfected the lethal calm required for this life.

Now it’s time to buy my first girl. But all it takes is one look at the brave girl who starts singing mid-auction for that calm to slip.

Briar Chapman is going to be the death of me, and I don’t care. I’ll take every day with her until that death comes, and I’ll welcome it when it does.

On the outside, Lucas Holt is what nightmares are made of. A man cloaked in darkness, with sin-filled eyes and an enticing grin. A devil so devastatingly beautiful and cruel that his very presence instills fear.

But beneath his terrifying, ever-calm exterior is an affectionate man haunted by a past that refuses to stay buried. And Lucas looks at me as though he’s finally found the only person who can make it all go away.

We’re a battle of the brightest day and the darkest night—and I want to lie in the wake of our war.

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

 is out now!!!

Amazon- http://amzn.to/2gv7qeM
Add to Goodreads- https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/32883962-bad-romeo-christmas

Christy's Review:

4.25 stars!

All lovers of Leisa Rayven’s Bad Romeo series should pick up Bad Romeo Christmas straight away! This was a fun, sexy and delightful compilation of 3 novellas. One for each of our favorite couples. The first part was Cassie and Ethan. The second, Elissa and Liam. And the third, and my personal favorite, Josh and Angel. Ever since I read Liam and Elissa’s story, I wanted more of Elissa’s best friend Josh. I was so glad to get this part (all from his POV of course!).

I love these couples. Their journey’s weren’t always easy, but it makes their HEA’s all the sweeter. I also love how all three of the stories and characters connect. It’s not all about romance, it’s about friendship as well. If you’re looking for an enjoyable holiday read about couples you adore, I would highly recommend picking this one up! It was fantastically fun!

Sweet Cheeks by K. Bromberg Promo Blitz

An all new second chance love story by the New York Times Bestselling author of the Driven series.

Sweet Cheeks by K. Bromberg is NOW LIVE!

It all started with the invitation. To my ex-fiance’s new wedding.
I should have ignored it.Thrown it away. Set it afire. But I didn’t. I replied.
With a plus one.
And then my assistant accidentally mailed it.
Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye.
When he showed up out of the blue ten years later, I should have known to steer clear. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex’s wedding. I should have never let him kiss me.
But I didn’t.
And now we’re left wondering if the pieces of the life we once shared still fit together somehow. First loves are hard to forget. The question is, do we want to forget? Or do we risk the chance and see what happens next?

I hear my name. I think I do anyway, and it distracts me enough momentarily that Hayes is able to grab and pull me tighter into him, the cupcake now inches from my face.
We stare at each other in a silent standoff, hearts racing and eyes daring. His gaze flickers over my shoulder and then back to mine as I prepare myself for the smash.
But it doesn’t come.
Instead he eases up and only dabs the frosting against the tip of my nose.
I sigh in relief.
Then gasp out in shock.
Because Hayes’s lips are on mine.
And not just a friendly peck. Not hardly. The hand that held the cupcake is now empty. Chocolate fallen by the wayside for a kiss. His fingers, sticky with frosting, are on my cheeks directing my face. But there’s no thought of the frosting he’ll get on my face or how funny it’s going to look when we walk back to our villa because all I can think about is Hayes.
I could tell myself I part my lips—grant him access—because I’m winded and need to breathe, but that would be a lie. Because the minute his tongue dances against mine, all I want to do is drown in his kiss. In the familiarity of it. In the difference of it. The unexpectedness of it. The comfort of it. In everything about him.
Hayes Whitley is kissing me. Again.
His fingers are possessive—on the underside of my jaw and the small of my back—and the soft groan he emits communicates everything his lips are expressing and more.
His taste consumes me. The chocolate on his tongue. The spark of desire. The lick of lust. The sense of calm riled up by an overload of emotion.
My hands slide up the plane of his back over skin heated by the sun and slick with frosting. His muscles bunch beneath my palms as he shifts the angle of the kiss.
His tongue tantalizes and torments. Begs me to want more with its tender caresses and then switches gear and demands me to keep pace. To allow him to possess and claim.
I feel in droves. Want. Need. Lust. More. Too much. Not enough. Don’t ever stop. What am I doing?
It’s just me.
And Hayes.
And the singular sensation of rightness he is making me feel. A sensation I don’t think I had ever realized was missing since he’d left, but now know I’ll never be able to live without.

Christy's 5 star review:

 photo 3D1A58E2-0571-4791-B900-CF72DB7022A3_zpsyyb30yeq.jpg

When I read Anything But Minor earlier this year, I was blown away. It was a fantastically hilarious sports romance. I was dying for the next one to release. You see, AbM was amazing, and my girl Alice stole the show, but there was this other character. He was Rafe’s best friend and his name is Andy. Because as much as I liked Rafe, I kind of liked Andy more, and I couldn’t wait for his story. Kate didn’t let me down. Andy and April’s story was just as good as Alice and Rafe’s. Another 5 star read in this wonderful series!

Andy and April meet through Alice and Rafe. As Alice and Rafe plan their wedding while Rafe is traveling with the pros, they need the help of their best man and maid of honor. Andy used to play ball with Rafe, but now he focuses his time on his bar. His passion is brewing beer and I loved watching him do what he loves. April is a 911 call operator. She’s bound to get some fun/funny calls, but her job is actually very serious and she’s good at it. She has the right heart for the difficult job.

Andy and April don’t start off as anything serious. Andy isn’t looking for that and April just got out of a long relationship, but the more time they spend together, the more serious it seems to become.

I loved watching the relationship develop between Andy and April. These two truly are a match made. They have that spark from the very start, you can really feel the chemistry between these two. Even the times they try to fight it. They were truly a great pair.

April is not the same kind of heroine as Alice, but I loved her just as much (and that’s saying something!) She’s funny, kind, fierce and a wonderful person. Andy deserved a special girl and I can’t think of anyone more deserving of him than April. Andy is sweet, sexy and truly has a heart of gold. I couldn’t ask for more in a hero, or a couple for that matter.

Major Love was highly entertaining, funny, sweet, sexy and truly warmed my heart. There wasn’t anything I didn’t love about this book or about these characters. They weren't perfect, but their imperfections made them that much more wonderful. 

Kate Stewart has proven over and over again that she can write anything. Romance, romantic comedies, sports romance, emotional reads, erotica, you name it and Kate can do it. She is my very own Shero <3 a="" all="" and="" andy="" april="" are="" being="" books="" can="" emotional="" enough.="" favorite="" funny="" heart.="" hold="" i="" in="" it="" me="" mix="" my="" of="" ott="" perfect="" place="" reads="" recommend="" s="" sexy.="" special="" story="" t="" the="" these="" they="" things-="" to="" truly="" will="" without="">Major Love
is another one that knocks it out of the ball park and gets a full 5 stars from me!!!
“Real love, the good stuff, the kind you can’t live without, comes with more than just a decision to love. It comes with the prices of patience and understanding.”
