Releasing Day Blitz: Comforting Touch by Cara Dee

Title: Comforting Touch
Author: Cara Dee
Series: Touching #5
Genre: Erotica, BDSM
Release Date: March 31, 2015
Summary:
One encounter changed them both. She discovered the lifestyle. He left it.
Ten years later, they meet again.

Chelsea Dunn is excited to start over in San Francisco. Her best friend Kayla lives there, and Chelsea gets a warm welcome into a new BDSM community. If only the man she's been infatuated with for so long was as welcoming. It's just her luck, really. She's never been able to connect with anyone enough to let her guard down fully, and it looks like that won't change.

Rio Kelly has only recently returned to the scene, but he steers clear of emotional attachments. He's grown jaded and cynical over the years, and he's resigned himself to be alone. Even when he sees a ghost from his past. Even when that ghost is the very same girl who changed everything for him a decade ago.

But can he stay away when she shows up at his play party with another Dom?


An hour after the scene has ended, I'm back in my corset dress, and Dante is satisfied with the aftercare. I've told him bits and pieces about why I couldn’t get into the scene like I had done last time we played, which I think is why he ultimately lets me go. The sadist even guilt-tripped me into telling him.

"How can I be a good Dom to you if I don’t know what upsets you in a scene?" he'd asked.

Bastard.

But bastard or not, I'm quick to accept the invitation to a play party next weekend. Maybe a little fun away from Switch will help. A friend of Dante's is hosting it, and the theme is Ancient Rome.

The music is loud and the dance floor is packed with people dancing, grinding, engaging in foreplay—oh, screw that. Literally. One Domme has her sub giving her oral, and another pair is full-on fucking.

My mouth quirks up a bit in amusement, and I walk over to the bar where I know Kayla's waiting for me. I've decided to simply take all her questions and answer as best as I can. Then we can move on with our lives.

I find her alone, though I catch the bartender keeping an eye on her. And she's too fucking cute, trying to slip the end of a straw into her gagged mouth.

"Trouble, pipsqueak?" I cram into the spot next to her, ignoring the scoff from someone behind me. "Maybe your Sprite can wait until Nicholas has taken off the gag."

She mumbles something, only to roll her eyes since I obviously can't hear what she's saying.

"Where's Brayden?"

More mumbling and some gesturing for the exit. I'm guessing Brayden's gone home already. Then she huffs and hops off her stool before she grabs my hand and begins dragging me in that direction.

"Kayla!" the bartender yells. "You're not allowed to leave my sight!"

She points upward, so I assume we're going up the stairs. Nicholas's office is there, I remember. It's where I said a quick see-ya-later to a half-asleep Kayla last week.

Speaking of her…

She tries to talk again, and she gestures wildly in order to make sense.

She doesn’t.

"Ugh! Weh-weh-wahh." At last, she gives up.

I snicker. "Was that supposed to be 'never mind,' Kayla?"

She nods sullenly as we reach the landing and wipes her mouth. Next, she places a finger over it, indicating…well, that we're probably about to eavesdrop.

I narrow my eyes at her. "Who're we listening in on?"

She blinks innocently, which is total bullshit. A part of me is already annoyed 'cause I know she wouldn’t be this urgent unless it was about Rio.

I hiss. "Is Nicholas in there with Rio?"

Leaving her coyness—and patience, I guess—behind, she snarls and pushes me toward the door.

Part annoyed…part fucking intrigued…it doesn’t take much for me to glue half my face to the door, and Kayla follows with glee sparking up her light blues.

"…would've told you sooner," Nicholas is saying, chuckling, "had you only been answering your phone."

Kayla shoots me a superior look, as if to say I'm not the only one immature enough to dodge calls.

"I still can't believe it." Rio sounds…tired. Tired and aggravated. "It's fucking with my head." To hear him speak again is indescribable. There's no forgetting that accent. Mostly American, the nondescript kind we get on TV, but with a hint of Australian and Irish. "Nick, I…I don’t want her here."

I recoil as if I've been slapped and take a couple steps back.

It feels like I've been slapped.

I'm not arrogant, but I'm not stupid, either. Of course he's talking about me.

Kayla appears irritated, hopefully on my behalf, but then she widens her eyes and quickly waves me forward again. She points to the door.

So I sigh and listen again, even though I'd rather go home and eat ice cream until I pass out.

"She’s the reason you left the scene, isn't she?"

What? Why would—

"No," Rio growls.

"Easy, tiger," I mutter.

Nicholas laughs. "I'm sorry, my friend, but this is hilarious. And sad. We both are. You know, I went through this exact same thing with Amand—"

"She's not the bloody reason," Rio replies angrily. "I don’t know what the fuck happened back then, but…" He lets out another growl, and a thump follows.

"No need to take out your anger on my furniture," Nicholas says mildly. "I won't leave Liam watching over Kayla much longer, so unless there's something else…?"

I arch a brow at Kayla. You're in trouble, girl.

She just shrugs, although there's a little wince, too.

"So she's staying," Rio states flatly. "She lives here now."

Sorry to disappoint, asshole.

"Yes. Chelsea is staying. And you better respect her, Rio." The warning in Nicholas's voice makes me a little misty-eyed. He's looking out for me. The fondness in Kayla's eyes tells me she loves that about her fiancΓ©. "You're one of my closest friends, but if you refuse to tell me why her being here is so upsetting, I can't help you."

It's clear that Rio won't talk, so I nudge Kayla back and nod at the stairs.

Time to go home.




Author Bio:
There aren't many things better than picking up my Kindle and getting completely sucked into a whole new world—where words morph into images and characters' moods suddenly reflect my own. Aside from good plot and writing, for me, it boils down to relatable characters.

As a writer, I'm not finished until the men and women in my books come to life, until I can see them as real people, until I can connect with them. Which means I write what I want to read: everyday heroes and heroines who have the same struggles we all do. They evolve, have flaws, make mistakes and amends, learn, and find the endings they fight for.

Those are the characters who take the readers on a journey away from work, laundry, grocery shopping, and to-do lists.

When I'm not writing, researching, or brainstorming, I'm either planning my next trip (never-ending bucket list!), reading, watching hockey, or spending time with family and friends.

Release Day Blitz: Sail by M Maibe

Title: Sail
Author: M Mabie
Series: Wake #2
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 31, 2015
Summary:
This isn’t just a two-year long one-night stand. It’s my life.

This is my life. Our life. It isn’t just some careless affair. 

I’ve made the worst decisions a woman could, but I’ll earn my second chance.

She can try keeping all the guilt for herself, but I’m just as much to blame. 

Loving Casey wasn’t my biggest mistake. Fighting it for so long was.

I’ll show her how fearless our love makes me. I’ll protect her torn heart. 

He still has magic in his eyes. He’s the man who makes me happy.

Her voice still brings me to my knees. She says my name like it’s sacred.

I live for the day when I’m his. To take care of him. To love him the way he deserves.

I can’t wait to be all she needs. I can give her a happy life, security and so much love. 

Sometimes two ships never meet in the night, but ours did.

Sometimes the water is rough. It beats you all to hell until you have no choice but get stronger. 

Our love story reads more like a tragedy, but to me it’s clean and pure.

Let them point their fingers. Without a love like ours, they haven’t really lived. I pity them.

I’m a cheating wife and a villain. I am his honeybee.

I’m a snake in the grass and I sleep best when I’m lying next to his wife. 

I want to be his everything.

I’m nothing without her anyway.

This isn’t even close to over.

It’ll never be over.


Bait #1
Summary:
He was trouble from the start, but I couldn't resist.
She was the best kind of trouble. The kind that was so wrong, it felt right.

I’ve tried and failed to stay away from him.
I’ve done everything in my power to make her mine and keep her.

He’s almost impossible to say no to.
She never tells me yes.

We’re always fighting.
When we’re not fighting, we’re… well… making up.

He makes me laugh so hard.
I miss her laugh the most.

I'm a liar.
She knows the truth, but won’t admit it.

Sometimes, I wish I'd never met him.
I wish we could meet all over again. I'd do better.

His sweet girlfriend knows.
The guy she’s with is a fool.

I’ll never love anyone like I love him.
She doesn’t love me enough to choose us.

It was the wrong place.
It was the wrong time.

It should have been him.
It will always be her.


Author Bio:

Release Day Blitz: Royal Cowries by Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku

Title: Royal Cowries
Author: Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku
Series: Cowries #1
Release Date: March 31, 2015
Summary:
Flirty & Feisty Romance Novel

In the land of Igodomigodo in 1470, a man's word was law. But in the hands of a wild maiden, Uvbi, lies the future, where women might have a say. When her freedom is endangered, Uvbi issues a threat to Nagudia before she disappears.

Nagudia, a renowned bronze caster conceals his past to gain freedom, but when he hears a scream in the bush, he takes action and his destiny becomes intertwined with Uvbi's. Are their lives destined together or will the journey to come uncover truths that will throw them apart?


     Uvbi’s body shuddered, until recognition slowly drizzled into her soul. Indescribable joy drenched her cold bones, when her heart put a name to the voice.
     It was the sharp, stern voice which plagued her since he rescued her from the bush.
     Even then, she proceeded with caution. One foot in front of the other, she found her way to the doorway shielded by palm fronds.
     What if Nagudia wasn’t alone?
     ‘Uvbi, it is me, Nagudia. I bring you good news.’
     His words rang in her ears.
     Shocked out of her wits, warmth mingled with relief. Her heart gyrated with joy. But good sense stamped down the flood of elation.
     ‘Have you come to send me back?’
     The men in Igodomigodo worked together. She trusted no one.
     ‘I do no such thing. I’m a man of peace.’
     She didn’t wait to hear more. Uvbi rushed out of her hiding place, and brushed the many discomforts, and worries of the past ten sunsets behind. Without restraint, she flung herself into his strong arms.
     Oh, her heaving chest left him breathing too fast now, and again. Not to mention her generous hips and legs, that could turn a man's good heart into a sinful cave.


Author Bio:
I love writing romance novels that are as intriguing and flirty as they are entertaining. Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels are a wide range of toe-curling, skin-tingling romance books with compelling characters who have heart and soul.

The stories are dotted with unexpected twists and turns and conflict and are set in fascinating Africa, enticing Europe and America. The witty dialogue between the characters keeps you thoroughly entertained.

If you want to cuddle up and relax, grab a copy, travel with the characters and sail away to Pleasure Island. They cure boredom and relieve stress!

In 2010, I created Flirty & Feisty Romance Novel. My first contemporary romance novel;
LOITERING SHADOWS was published in May 2010. Other Flirty & Feisty Romance Novels are, STORMY DEFENSE, BEYOND the LADY, the National Novel Writing Month 2010 winning novel, THE GARDENER’s ICE MAIDEN, SPARKLING DAWN, the spicy hot HUSBAND to RENT, Stolen Valentine Kiss (Holiday Series #1) and Kiss My Lips (Holiday Series #2).

I’m working on my first historical romance novel - a trilogy. My job is taking care of my gorgeous, life-size hero of a husband and two vibrant and loving ‘near teenagers’.

I love to read romance novels, swim and watch TV shows.

Release Day Blitz: Crashing Tides by Casey Peeler

Title: Crashing Tides
Author: Casey Peeler
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Day: March 31, 2015
Summary:
You can predict the tides but not the changes they make. Gunnison Del Valle was the current in the tide that was about to change my life.  
Crash one we met.
               Crash two we fell in love.
                          Crash three changed our perfectly planned lives forever.


     When the band begins to play, I can’t help but smile.  I feel at home.  This beach is my other home, now if only I could dance.  As couples begin to shag on the dance floor, I can’t help but look at Brett’s reaction.  He’s taking it all in and watching their footsteps.  I begin to giggle.  “What?” he asks.  I stand and take him by the hand.  “I have no clue how to do this.”
     “It’s easy.  Just remember, one-two-three rock back.  I’ll help you, no worries.”  I wink.  After a few songs, he becomes a natural and, we are laughing, smiling, and dancing like we have been dance partners for years.  When the song ends, they slow things down and Brett never lets go of my hands.  Instead, he pulls me close to him as we sway back and forth and my lips meet his.
     He takes me from the dance floor and leads me to the marshwalk.  We walk hand in hand from Wicked Tuna to Sisters Marina while looking at all of the fishing boats and yachts.  On our way back, we walk a little slower and stop to watch the tide flow into the marsh.  Brett wraps his arms around me and I can’t help but look into the clear Carolina night sky and pray this is real.
