Book Blitz & Giveaway: Heart of the Colossus [Holly Drake Job 03] by Nicole Grotepas!


Excerpt!
   
   Back at the Bird’s Nest, Holly watched as Darius showed Shiro how to use the tranquilizer gun.
   “I prefer sword-play. This isn’t a distraction, it’s brute strength. There’s no finesse. I need finesse, chaps.”
   “Alright, Odeon, then,” Darius said, looking at the Druiviin where he sat on the sofa, plucking out a tune on a small stringed Druiviin instrument.
   “I am sorry, but that’s not something I can do, either. I’m a healer. Injecting someone with that goes against everything I believe in.”
   Darius fumed quietly, his jaw clenching and unclenching. “Really? Using that Ousaba isn’t healing, is it? Fine.” He breathed out. Looking around the room. Charly had just come into the Nest and sat down behind her desk, rummaging through drawers and riffling through papers. Darius’s gaze settled on her. “Charly then.”
   “What?” She glanced up and saw the tranquilizer gun in his hands. “Oh, hell yeah. You should have just picked me from the start,” Charly said, standing up and moving around her desk to take the gun in her hands. “Sweet.” Darius removed a dart from the canvas quiver and showed her how to load it. He repeated to Charly everything Shig had told him.
   Charly stood in a wide stance and aimed the dart gun out the window behind Darius, closing one eye. “So how soon do I get to use this puppy?”

Save them all or die trying.

Holly Drake and her team have seen the evil lurking behind everything the Shadow Coalition does. The last time they plunged into the heart of the shadow empire, they could only rescue one. Now they’re going back for the rest. The crew is ready and willing to put everything on the line. They have a plan, they have the means, this is the job they were born to do.

But time and space are stacked against them.

The mission is a logistical nightmare. How can Holly and her crew save an entire fleet of children? The answer: whatever it takes. Co-opting fuel tankers, recruiting explosives experts, hiring pilots, and revisiting mysterious specters from the past. Some things are too painful, even for Holly Drake, but when it comes to freeing the innocent, not even the ugliest mistakes from her past will hold her back.

Is this the mission that will unveil the true nature of the Heart at the center of the Shadow Coalition? She’s seen the hands, just who is the heart?

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: The Sound of Your Heart [College Bound 03] by Laura Ward and Christine Manzari!


Julie Prescott is the life of every party. She’s loud, witty, and uses her body and pretty face to get whatever she wants. She’s never had a problem hooking up with guys, or ditching them when they don’t live up to her standards. Julie has a list of exes a mile long and a reputation to match, but she’s looking for more than just a degree in college. She’s looking for Mr. Perfect.

Ben Sutherland is the enigmatic bassist of a popular local band. Born blind, Ben depends on his other senses to help him understand the world around him on a deeper level. His sultry voice and musical talent might make it impossible for him to go unnoticed on campus, but Ben isn’t looking for fame or groupies. He’s looking to perfect his music.

Julie’s been lusting after Ben for months and when she finally meets him at a party, her confidence is shaken when she discovers she can’t use her physical beauty to charm him. Even though she's always relied on her looks, it’s her personality that wins Ben over and he’s determined to show her that she’s more than just a pretty face.

But falling in love is the easy part. Family lies, a questionable reputation, and the chance of a lifetime threaten to tear Ben and Julie apart. Can they trust the futures they’ve chosen or will they take the biggest risk of all and listen to the sound of their own hearts?

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Catching Callie by Claire Woods!


I don't know what her story is but I want to write myself in it.

The Press labeled me campuses “DIRTY PLAYER.”

The scandal I'm caught in just made national news, ESPN, & Sports Illustrated.

Forced to hide out in a small beach town until I can clear my name, the last thing I expected was to run into her.

Literally.

First, she stole my breath, then my heart. But she wants nothing to do with me.

Even my killer smile, panty-melting grin, and cut abs aren't reeling her in.

She ran.

Twice.

I have six weeks to find my mystery girl, get my reputation back, and prove to her I’m not some dirty player: I’m her prince. The football field is the domain where I rule, and her heart is the next thing I’m going to capture.

Somehow, I have a feeling Catching Callie is going to be the biggest win of my life.

GAME ON.

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Keeping Her Close by Casey Diam!





When a heart is broken, it withdraws, shielding itself from further pain, but also from further life.

Brandon Kuvat gave up on love ten years ago—the year he was set to become a dad. A wealthy playboy pilot, he still sees plenty of action, but he’s not the man he once was. Or the man he wishes he could be. The first time he encounters Jordan, he knows immediately she is different. He also knows hurting her is inevitable. Still, he can’t stay away, even if it means he'll have to settle for a friendship—but only for as long as that can last.

Wounded by a disastrous relationship, Jordan Artesian has put her whole focus on work, nurturing her dreams of owning her own fashion line. But though her creativity blooms, the rest of her is still frozen, that is, until Brandon charms his way into her life. He's irritating, but somehow...intriguing. She hates that she finds his charming and challenging ways attractive. He isn’t supposed to make her feel things she’s given up on feeling.

For these two, friendship will never be enough—not when she’s what he needs to heal, and he’s what she needs to feel again. But can they find their way down the path of friendship to truly love and trust one another, or will they only destroy each other’s hearts all over again?

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: Blood & Secrets 2 [The Calvetti Crime Family 02] by Rose Harper!


I once was lost, but now I’m found.

The name's Carina Ricci and Mateo belongs to me.
He thinks he’s the leader, but he’s blind to what I see.
He’s just a pawn in this sick and twisted game.
As of right now, things are still tame.

I was promised to him since birth,
But what he doesn’t know is this …
I’m crazy.
The level of crazy everyone fears and my sights are set on him.

The secrets, lies, and blood I’ve shed,
Make the psychopath buzz in my head.
He’s my king, and I’m his queen.
He’ll shiver when he sees the things I’ve seen.

Yet, what I didn’t expect is to be caught in this, too.
The game we are playing is starting anew.
The enemy is now becoming a friend.
I think we’re all going to die when it finally ends.
