#CoverReveal: Twisted, by @AleathaRomig @inkslingerpr #preorder #contemporary #romance #thriller #suspense #CR


The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving. It’s a world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything. While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my decision to give up my life. That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live. Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where they came, not recalling what I’d lost. And then I saw her. Laurel Carlson. I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t. My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted existence. None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an answer. I’ve made dangerous mistakes before. This time, will the price be too high?   From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance bringing us back to the same dangerous underworld as SECRETS. You do not need to read the Web of Sin trilogy to get caught in this new and intriguing saga, Tangled Web. TWISTED is book one of the TANGLED WEB trilogy which will continue in OBSESSED and conclude in BOUND. Have you been Aleatha’d? ADD TO GOODREADS

Red River’s most eligible bachelor has been keeping secrets…

Flight medic Langston Brooks has built a good life for himself in his hometown of Red River. He’s got it all—a close-knit group of friends and family, an exciting career on a life-flight helicopter, and ridiculously good looks that have made him one of Red River’s most eligible bachelors. The only thing missing is someone to share it with.

His secret lover for the past decade isn’t a forever kind of girl. Not with a tarnished reputation over something she didn’t do, and it’s still following her. Now that she’s brought an international winter sports event to Red River, it’s her ticket out of town. She can finally make a clean break as soon as she collects the nice payday that’s coming her way. The only problem with her plan is she’ll have to leave Langston behind, too.

After keeping their relationship under wraps for years—at her insistence—she finally breaks it off with Langston for good. Moving on alone is best for everyone, especially Red River’s sexy flight medic, who doesn’t deserve the baggage from her troubled past. When they’re forced to work together to make the event a success, can she keep up the pretense that she doesn’t love him anymore? Or will she finally give in and become his forever love?

Return to Red River–where the nights are cool and the romance is hot–in this sexy novella.

Find out who hot alpha flight medic, Langston Brooks has been seeing on the sly for years. After keeping their love affair a secret for a decade, will they finally get their happily ever after?

Read an excerpt from IT’S IN HIS FOREVER:

“What the heck just happened?” Wait. Had she said that out loud? Langston shifted his large frame, closing the space between them. “I think I just became an important part of your event staff.” Dammit. She had said it out loud. She spun to face him, steam practically billowing from her ears. “Why did you do that? You undermined my authority, not to mention the fact that you know this is a bad idea.” Her head snapped around to make sure no one was listening. Thank goodness the council was already filtering toward the door. “You know how people in this town are. If we spend a lot of time together, which we will with you as the safety officer, they’ll start talking.” “So let them talk.” He shrugged. So angry she was at a loss for words, she simply let out a frustrated huff. Langston stared at his mug, the muscle in his jaw ticking. Finally, he said, “Hell. If you don’t want people to talk about us, then maybe we shouldn’t have been sleeping together the past ten years.” Twelve years. If the two years of hot and heavy making out in high school didn’t count. “That’s over, remember?” How could he not? She’d told him to his face, so he could finally move on without her dragging him down like an anchor sinking a ship. Langston leaned closer. “If it makes you feel better, then keep telling yourself that.” He placed his mug on the table. “But you and I both know it’s never going to be over between us.” He turned to leave but hesitated. “Mr. Brooks? Really? I know you’ve always wanted to keep our relationship a secret, but calling me Mr. Brooks when I’ve seen you naked…” His gaze slid down her length. Even though she was clothed in full winter gear, his eyes darkened as though he was picturing her with nothing on at all. Her skin prickled, and the room suddenly grew warm. Heat slid through her, settling between her thighs. She clenched every muscle from the waist down. “Yes, well…” She hugged her papers to her chest. “It was fun, but it’s time to move on. This will be nothing more than work between us.” She smiled, realizing she did have a card to play. “And as far as the snowboarding event is concerned, I’m your boss.” A slow, naughty smile spread across his face. “That makes it all the more interesting.” He strolled through the front door, leaving her staring after him. Leaving her more determined than ever to keep their working relationship purely professional. Leaving her wanting him more than ever.

She wants to hate him, but instead she’s in danger of losing all control.

Mitch and I stride up the stairs leading to the upper level of the apartment. I swing a right into the kitchen, fling open the fridge door, swipe a bottle of wine and two glasses, then head up the fire escape stairs to the secluded rooftop oasis.

“Should you really be stealing your aunt’s, wine?”

“She probably won’t even realize it’s gone.”

While I’m at the sound system, plugging my iPod into the dock, I see from the corner of my eye Mitch spreading out blankets on the daybed. He’s so sweet. I search for a track to start shuffle. Perfect. “Never Tear Us Apart” by INXS, a good Aussie band to introduce to Mitch.

The beginning of the song starts, a pulsating orchestra. I move over to the daybed with two glasses of wine where Mitch is comfortably reclined. We clang our glasses together in a cheer, take a sip. Then I lean down toward him but place my glass on the bench beside the daybed instead of moving in toward him.

Again, I move in a little closer to him as the chorus erupts, our faces just inches from each other. “Two worlds colliding, and they could never, ever, tear us apart …” The saxophone belts out the solo of the song. Our eyes, so close. Mitch brings my mouth deep into his. I don’t ever want this moment to end. He tastes still slightly salty and briny from oysters and fried onion rings. His hand moves over my thigh and follows the line of my hips and waist then trails up over my arm and shoulder. My breathing has become a succession of short quick light breaths. One of his hands firmly clasps the nape of my neck, the other softly padding my breast while he pulls my lips deeper into his mouth then releases them. Tender, engorged, pulsating, our lips now barely touching, his undulating breath cools the burning. I yield to him. I’m in limbo and completely on the edge. Damn it, I want him so badly. He brings his hands up to my face, firmly cupping my cheeks, and traces the very tip of his tongue across the outline of my lips then kisses me deeply, like I’ve never been kissed before. We are completely and utterly connected and, in my mind, the only people in the world right now.

“Adeline,” he whispers, almost out of breath. “Fuck. You’re such an incredible woman.”

I nuzzle my face into his neck and smell our scents mingling together with the occasional waft of wine. A chill comes over me, and Mitch pulls the covers of the daybed up and over the both of us as we lie there, our bodies perfectly slotted into each other, shrouded by the wall of Manhattan skyscrapers, safe and under a blanket of barely visible shimmering stars.

“Adeline. Adeline. Adeline! It’s a quarter to six. We need to leave by six-thirty and you still have to finish packing. There’s clothes strewn everywhere in your room.” Reggie’s voice jolts me back into reality.

#NewRelease: Diary of a Bad Boy, by Meghan Quinn @inkslingerpr #availablenow #KU #romcom #enemiestolovers #romancenovels #sexynovel #irishlover #forbiddenromance #inkslingerpr


Dear Diary, I might have gotten myself into a wee bit of trouble—and I’m not talking about the “court mandated community service,” or “therapy sessions from bashing a bloke in the head” kind of trouble. I wish it were that simple. Nope. I’m talking about the “falling in love with one of my client’s daughters,” kind of trouble . . . The kind of problem I can’t talk my way out of when the truth gets out. How I ended up with her phone is a long story—and when she called to get it back, I took things a bit too far. One innocent exchange wound up leading to so much more. Fun, new, and totally immune to my charm, Sutton is different. And I had no idea she was the daughter of Foster Green. Blame it on the dark colored stout running through my veins, pushing me toward one bad decision after another. Pushing me toward her even though I know right from wrong; even though she’s my client’s daughter. Dating her might be the best or worst decision I’ve ever made. Only time, whiskey, and one more roll around the mattress with her will tell.

Carter Sloane is famous for one thing: winning cases. He’s sharp, astute, and always gets his way. In his private life, he’s constantly fumbling his way around when it comes to raising his two nieces.

When he moves into a new office, he just can’t take his eyes off the fiercely independent woman across the street. He’d love to touch and kiss that irresistible body.

Valentina “Val” Connor is proud of her booming fragrance company. If only she were half as successful in her love life… Between trusting the wrong men and sheer bad luck, Val is convinced she’ll never find the one.

However, the sexy lawyer in the neighborhood with his sophisticated charm and sex-appeal is hell bent on proving to her that she’s wrong. Val’s senses warn her to stay away from men like him-even if her body is begging her to cave.

But when she finds out about Carter’s nieces, she steps in to help, doting on them with love and care. She can’t believe that the same man who is usually in control is completely in over his head with the girls.

But as Val and Carter grow closer, one thing is clear to him: He’d move mountains to make her happy, but with Val’s career soaring, how can he ask her to commit to the chaos of his life?

#NewRelease: Keep It Classy, by @LLVtwitter @inkslingerpr #contemporary #romance #CR


Ghosts are real. Well, technically speaking, maybe not. But the ones that haunt a man’s soul? Those are very real. So real, in fact, that there are times when Castiel would rather silence them forever in the worst way possible than to go on living with them haunting his every step. All it took was one single second in time for his attention to drift, and everything changed. Life as he once knew it, is over. Now he’s struggling to make sense of the pieces that are left, and he’s fairly sure at least half of them are missing. He’s living for three things now. His club—the Bear Bottom Guardians. His work as a police officer for Bear Bottom Police Department. And the occasional glimpse of a girl that makes his spirit feel free. Despite the ghosts that haunt him, he’s not willing to present them with another target. Which is why he has to stay away from her. He can’t touch her. He can’t talk to her. He can’t get anywhere near her. Not and live with himself afterward. The only problem is, Turner doesn’t care what Castiel wants. She also has a solution for his ghosts. You may call her Ms. Ghostbuster.

Add the book to Goodreads


When I wake the next morning, I don’t get out of bed right away; instead, I shift my gaze down to the warm body cuddled in my arms. I stare down at Sophia while she sleeps soundly in my arms a little longer than I normally do. My eyes trace the soft lines and features of her face. Her dark lashes are fanned across her cheeks that are tinged pink with warmth from sleeping. Her lips that are naturally pouty have seemed to grow in size during the pregnancy. Everything about her is the same yet so incredibly different. I’ve never thought pregnant women were beautiful, never thought much about them at all, but Sophia, the way she carries pregnancy, she looks like a fucking goddess. She’s never looked more beautiful than she does carrying my child.

I spent most of the dawn watching her sleep. Focusing on the rhythmic rise and fall of her chest, her parted lips, the sensation of her soft skin beneath my rough hands. When I wasn’t doing that, I was talking to our little guy. It’s become a morning ritual lately. While his mom is still asleep, I chat with him about anything and everything. About how much I love his mother. How afraid I am for him to finally be here. About how much my mother would’ve loved him. But most of all, how much even now, I already love him.

Before Sophia, I never thought I was capable of love. But it seems because of her, I’m finding out my capacity for love and loving isn’t what I thought it was. What I feel for them both? I can’t even put it into words. It’s all-consuming. The love. The need to protect and cherish. And to think, if I’d never met her, I wouldn’t have this feeling. That feeling I get in my chest whenever I see her or whenever I feel him kick.

When the morning rays of light start to spill into the room, I press a kiss to her hair and slide out of bed to get dressed.
