Book Tour: Back To You This Christmas by S.L. Sterling!



Bah-humbug!

This Christmas, all I wanted was to wallow in self-pity until the woman I thought was the love of my life could explain why she left me at the altar. Instead, my buddy, Zach forced holiday merriment on me. I thought it was going to be a tinsel-laced nightmare... until his sister, Alexa, showed up. Turns out, she grew up into a gorgeous present I was insanely tempted to unwrap. Lucky for me, she shared my desire to meet under the metaphorical mistletoe... and let things heat up from there.

For the first time in months, Laura, my ex, wasn’t haunting my thoughts like the Ghost of Christmas Past. Which, of course, is exactly why she had to pick that moment to call and say she wanted to talk. I could only hope St. Nick had a playbook in his sleigh because things were about to get complicated.

From author S.L. Sterling comes a sizzling holiday romance hot enough to roast your chestnuts!

Book Blitz & Giveaway: It Was Always You by S.L. Sterling!


Excerpt!

   "Man, did you hear anything I said?" Elliott waved, snapping me out of my memory.
   "What?" I must have looked like an idiot. Here I was, sitting across from her brother, remembering the last night I was with his sister. Thank God he couldn't see below the table; my painful erection was straining against my jeans.
   "She arrives tomorrow," he repeated.
   I shifted in my seat, doing my best to readjust myself. I nodded to the bartender for another round as I took a long swig, emptying my beer. It was going to be a long night.
   "Aren't you working for me tomorrow?" I asked.
   "Yes." He hesitated. "Parker, I have a huge favor to ask."
   He was crazy if he thought I would pick her up. There was no way I could do that. I wasn't ready to see her.
   "I hate to ask, but would you be able to pick her up for me and bring her to this address? I'll be done with work at four but won't be able to get there for two."
   He scratched out an address on a napkin and passed it over to me.
   "I don't want her to have to take a cab from the airport."
   I frowned as I looked down at the address he had written. It was about a block from my place. What the hell! It had taken me the last eight years to even think about dating seriously again. The past few years had been nothing but one-night stands, and I was growing tired of it now. I wanted more—I needed more—and now the girl I had never gotten over would be living less than a five-minute drive from my place. I took in a deep breath. I must have lost my mind.
   "What time?"
   "Her flight lands at two. Gate B4," Elliott informed.
   I placed the napkin in my pocket and ordered us some food. "I'll be back. Gonna hit the bathroom."
   Standing outside the washroom, I pulled my cell phone out of my pocket. Opening my contacts, I pulled Tatum's information up on my screen. I wanted to text her. Hell, I had wanted to text her every time I got drunk. Every time I was lonely and horny, and pretty much every day for the last eight fucking years. My finger hovered over the text icon for what seemed like hours, but I decided against it. I slid my phone back into my pocket and went back out to drown my sorrows in more beer.

Fresh out of an abusive relationship, Tatum packs up and goes to live closer to her brother.
A new life. New beginnings.
But when Parker – her college sweetheart – comes back around she’s immediately divided between trying again or protecting her damaged heart.

Parker hasn’t been able to get Tatum off his mind since the night he walked out of her life. Eight years of one night stands, along with sleepless nights, and the pain of losing her has virtually faded. But now she’s moving back to town and all the emotions of the past come crashing in to drive him back to her.

Ex-boyfriends are real, though.
And hers becomes obsessed.
Tatum and Parker’s rekindled love will be tested to its limits.
And worlds may come crashing down.

Release Day Blitz: NIX [Daring the Kane Brothers 04] by Kelly Gendron!


Single dad. Computer geek. One-night stand. Not looking for love.
That’s how my profile reads

And I was getting away with the whole no girlfriend status
Until Payton Tucker showed up

Damn, that woman walks in a room and the world stops spinning
Gravity pulls me right to her
Not to mention, my kid likes her

But, as my profile reads, I am NOT looking for love
Especially with a woman who smells, feels and touches me just like my first love– the same woman who walked out on me and our kid

So, Payton Tucker can take her makes the word stop spinning sexy blue eyes and go right back to where she came from

But, to be on the safe side– considering she is a lot like my MIA ex, before I send Payton Tucker on her way, maybe I should discover exactly where she came from…

Blog Tour & Giveaway: Disarm [The Dumonts 02] by Karina Halle!


Publication date: 19th November 2019
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: Seraphine Dumont seems to have it all: she’s gorgeous, brilliant, and part of one of France’s most illustrious dynasties. But underneath the facade, Seraphine struggles to hold it all together. Besides grieving her adoptive father’s suspicious and sudden death, she also shares a tenuous role in the family business with Blaise, her in-name-only cousin. As tumultuous as their history is, he may be the only member of the deceptive Dumont family she can trust.

Seraphine is a temptation Blaise can’t resist. The torch he’s carried for years still burns. It’s his secret—a quiet obsession just out of reach. Until his brother demands that he spy on the increasingly cagey Seraphine, whom their father considers a dispensable Dumont outlier. But the more Blaise watches her and the closer he gets, the more he sees Seraphine may have every right to be suspicious. And she could be the next one in danger—from his own family.

As blood runs hot and hearts give in, Seraphine and Blaise have only each other. But can their love survive the secrets they’re about to uncover?

I read an ARC of the first book in this series and really enjoyed it, so I was looking forward to reading this book! I was waiting patiently for it to release, but I was then able to get an ARC from the publisher and I started reading it as soon as I could! After reading this book, I can say I loved it a lot! The plot only took me a few sittings to read and it had me desperate to read on and find out what was going to happen next! It developed at the perfect pace as well and There was plenty of romance in the plot as well, and the romance allowed for a few seriously hot scenes between the two main characters! There was a bit of action and suspense as well! The ending of this book was also left at the perfect place for the characters and I loved it! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Seraphine was the main female character, and she made quite a few appearances in the first book as a secondary character, so I couldn't wait to read her story! I got to learn a lot more about Seraphine in this book and my heart went out to her because she had been through a lot and she tried her best in this book to find out the truth! Seraphine was also a strong character and she learned a lot about the other characters in this book! Blaise was the main male character and love interest of Seraphine! It's been a few months since I read the first book, but I think that Blaise made a few appearances in it! I loved Blaise a lot in this book! He didn't trust his family, which was completely understandable, and he went against them to help Seraphine! I loved the way Blaise was with Seraphine too! They had a history and he had always felt something for her, but was able to act on his feelings in this book! He was protective of her too! I loved that this book was written from Seraphine and Blaise's point of views! I was hoping that it was going to be because the first book was written from dual point of view and the synopsis gives the impression that it's going to be written this way! I'm really happy that it was because it helped me connect more with Seraphine and Blaise and understand It allowed for more things to happen in the plot as well, especially as they didn't spend every second of the plot together and had their own situations going on! I now can't wait to read the next book in this series! I know that it's going to be the final book, which has me sad, but I'm exciated about who the main characters are going to be and I'm excited for it to release! I know that it doesn't release until February, which is a bit of a wait, but at least it's not a year lol! I'll definitely be reading it as soon as it releases! The cover for this book is also seriously hot! I loved it as soon as I saw it and it looks perfect with the cover for the first book! The cover model is also the perfect Blaise and the cover would definitely attract me to the book! Big thank you to Montlake Romance and Netgalley for an ARC of Disarm!

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author L.P. Dover comes the crossover fans having been waiting for! Beloved characters from her Armed & Dangerous and Circle of Justice novels come together in this tantalizing new series!

For years, my family was on top.
Ruthless.
Respected.
Feared.

That all changed with the death of my father. As I moved into the position of power over the Corsino empire, enemies to the family tried to take over my city. They thought I would be weakened by my loss. They don’t know me.

My name is Dominic Corsino, and I have a ravenous appetite for money, power, and women. The last of which I pushed aside when Faith Hilliard, a close family friend, turned up in need of help. I’ve always wanted her, yet couldn’t bring myself to involve her in the dark savagery of my world. Now, she’s within my grasp once more. If I didn’t fear her running from my brutal truth, I would have already tasted her sweet temptation.

But the time for hesitation passes when a fighter in my underground ring is murdered. With my family name at stake, I can no longer hide who I am and what I’m capable of. It’s all coming down to a one winner-takes-all match. If I walk away with the prize, the threats against the Corsinos will be crushed. If I lose, our entire empire will crumble.

It’s a dangerous game … and I’m ready to play.

Release Day Blitz & Giveaway: The imPERFECT Guy by Leddy Harper!


I never set out to be famous. It sort of fell into my lap.
Just like Finn.

He was exactly what I needed in an assistant, and the exact opposite of everything I looked for in a guy, which made hiring him an easy decision.

It was perfect.
Then it wasn’t.

One by one, I started to fall for all of Finn’s imperfections, leaving me to question...

Was I simply looking for all the wrong things in a man? Or was Finn perfect because he was imperfect?
