Hear Me Roar: a Bloodshed novel

With strength comes dependence.
I thought I had it all.

The Title. The Pro status. The man.

I thought I’d finally left the past where it belonged, thought the future would be nothing but a bright ray of light with Knox by my side.

I was wrong.

In seeking answers, I opened the doorway to a terrifying, psychotic ride no one was prepared for. And through that very door, the past -both his and mine- somehow wove its way as one and slithered back into our lives, creating a fresh hell that stirred doubt and resentment within us.

Will our bond, our love, be strong enough to supersede the forces threatening to break us, or will we swiftly crumble to the ground, piece by piece?

Hear Me Roar is available exclusively on Amazon for Kindle and in paperback.

Get to Know M.W. Brown and Dee Garcia for Foster an Author 2018

It’s Foster an Author 2018 and this year I am hosting M.W. Brown and Dee Garcia! All week I’ll be posting tidbits about them and helping you get to know their work.

So who’s M.K. Brown? 

M. W. Brown likes to sneak away from the UK and travel to planet Bowie to write horror, supernatural thrillers, and anything dark that pops into the imagination en route. Ziggy, Aladdin, and the Thin White Duke supply copious amounts of coffee while keeping the mood suitably twisted and, when not working, can be found people-watching and searching for the elusive “normal person” to study and dissect. Portraits in Flesh, a psychological thriller with a paranormal twist, was published early 2018 and several short stories have been published in a variety of anthologies.

Promo Blitz: Vanquished by LeTeisha Newton

 

 

 

 

 

If I should die before I wake,…

Then my soul is Caesar’s to take. He pulls up down, he lifts me up.

And then he leaves me in the muck.

If should fall before I fly…

Then they know it was the fault of mine. He taught me better, he led the way.

I just didn’t know how to stay.

And if I should not gain his heart…

Fuck that, he made me this way. Curled my thoughts and twisted me.

He belongs to me, forever.

 

 

 

When had I realized Caesar was beautiful?
Sinister and evil, sure. But beautiful.
I swallowed a whimper as heat spread through me. It was tragic the way Jason had molded me, twisted me into a woman who craved darkness like this. The scent of Caesar’s flesh made me shake, and the strength of his body left me wet. I curled my fingers into a fist over his heart, marking the steady rhythm as he carried me. As a little girl, my father had read me stories of gallant knights slaying demons for the princesses trapped in towers. I’d dream of a knight in shining armor to come rescue me when Trace started getting Momma high, and a sword of fire to cut Jason down. The knight never came, and the sword was absent. Caesar was a black knight, wrapped in dark steel on a steed of death. He came to destroy, and I felt my life with him would be a short, a brilliant spark of blood and pain, but I wanted it. Training, comfort, or knowledge, I didn’t know which to blame, but I clung to it. It’s all I knew, all I believed.
We continued down the hall, and he kicked open a door to a bedroom where Sean waited. This would be my tower, and there would be no going back unless I found a way out. I didn’t let my muscles tense, as I worried why he was there.
“The adjustments are underway. I’ll stay at the door, just in case.”
Fuck. I couldn’t escape right now, which meant I had to keep up the act. I’d have to let Caesar do whatever he had planned. To hide my clenched fist, I unfurled my fingers over his beating heart. With each thump, I felt it deeper in my blood—an echo I recognized but didn’t remember. The odd moment confused me as he took me further in the room, bypassed the bed, and stalked into a bathroom full of steam.
Embarrassment streaked through me.
Of course, he wouldn’t want to fuck a woman smelling of piss and shit.
As he lowered me into the bathtub, hot water licked over my sore muscles. The wounds had healed and had begun fading, but the heat took my breath away. I never knew how much I’d love the idea of being clean until the chance to wash had been taken away. As I sank into the water, Caesar released me and stood tall. My gaze traveled his form, drawn to the artwork and a hint into the man who held me. A bit further away, I could see the indentions of his abs and the slope into his groin muscles. Devil’s Horns, I’d always called them, and they stuck out of Caesar’s jeans. A dragon soared over his right pec, and a raging phoenix coiled around his left arm. In between the two mythological animals, Caesar had stamped himself with bits of imagery. Crows disintegrating into dust, ‘if not me, then who’ was traced in beautiful cursive on his left hip, and even more colorful art decorated him. I couldn’t dare to understand it all; it was as chaotic and confusing as the man before me.
“Took three years for the concept. You’d look good with some ink. Some big pieces, up that right side, from toe to armpit. I’d like to see that,” he said.
His eyes traveled over the flesh he envisioned, and I watched him. An odd, crazy ache brewed in my chest and my heart fluttered. What? We weren’t two people born to come together slowly over candlelight dinners and dates. We sparked, fought, and raged. But here, in the damp, misty interior of the bathroom, the outside world faded and he was just a half-naked man, and I was a broken girl wishing to be saved. His hot gaze burned over me, and deep inside something flared to life.
“Do you find me beautiful?” I asked, and sucked in a breath. I hadn’t meant to speak, to ask, but it floated between us.
He titled his head, and his narrow gaze looked everywhere but at my face. “I find you brilliant and tragic,” he whispered. Brilliant and tragic. He frowned, his brows riding low over his eyes as he shook his head. “A puzzle I can’t figure out.”

 

 

Writing professionally since 2008, LeTeisha Newton’s love of romance novels began long before it should have. After spending years sneaking reads from her grandmother’s stash, she finally decided to pen her own tales. As many will do during their youth, she bounced from fantasy, urban literature, mainstream, interracial, paranormal, heterosexual, and LGBT works until she finally rested in contemporary romance.
LeTeisha is all about deep angst and angry heroes who take a bit more loving to smooth their rough edges. Love comes in many sizes, shapes, and colors, as well as with—or without—absolute beauty and fairy tale sweetness. She writes the darker tales because life is hard … but love is harder.

“I met the man I wanted. But then he vanished, and a new man claimed me instead. My father approved, my colleagues congratulated, and behind closed doors, I was bedded by a stranger.”


Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security.


However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver.


Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.
Including her.


Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else.

Until her past collides with her present.

And it’s her turn to lie.

To everyone…including herself.

Blurb

Still struggling with amnesia, Ella questions everything she’s known about Kayden Wilkens—the alluring stranger who claims to have found her unconscious in an alleyway a month earlier. But was he truly a stranger—or did Kayden know her before his supposed rescue? Tormented by the potential betrayal he denies, with fleeting memories of a bombshell in her recent past, Ella must face a hard reality. Every action has consequences . . . and trusting Kayden, the one thing she most desires, might result in the direst consequences of all.

demand use fs

Excerpt

Crossing behind the couch toward the kitchen, I find myself remembering those naked, intimate moments with Kayden only a short time ago. The passion. The trust I’d felt for him. And then his words: “We both want more. Until we don’t.” The words send a surge of adrenaline and nerves through my body.

The scent of freshly brewed coffee teases my nostrils as I reach the kitchen, where I immediately find Kayden standing behind the island. But it’s not him that makes my heart lurch, as usual. It’s my gun that’s lying on the counter between us.

And when I should perhaps step backward I find myself charging forward to claim the other side of the counter.

“What is that for?”

“You thought you needed it earlier,” he says. “I want you to have it now.”

My fingers curl on the tiled counter. “Do I need it?”

“That’s for you to decide.”

“That isn’t the answer I want.”

His jaw sets hard. “If you’re expecting an answer you’ll want, you’d better pick up that gun.”

We stare at each other, a push and pull between us that has nothing to do with fear or intimidation, and everything to do with a bond we both know is being tested. “I know what you’re doing.”

“What am I doing?”

“The same thing you did outside that church, when you helped me hold the gun to your chest.”

“Which is what?”

“Offering me the façade of control.”

“You holding a loaded gun on me in no way equals a façade.”

“I know you now,” I counter. “You don’t give up control, even when you say you are.”

He rests his hands on the counter, one turned just enough for me to catch a glimpse of the hawk inked on his wrist, its wings spread, the mark of a man whose rules of many must dictate his actions. “There are two sides to this coin,” he says, his words drawing my attention, his pale blue eyes piercing mine. “The me with you, and the me with everyone else.”

“We barely knew each other at the church.”

“I’d already decided you were mine. You just didn’t know it yet.”

Blog Tour/Guest Post: No Ordinary Love by Kenya Wright

No Ordinary Love (3)

Interracial Romance is a fine art.

The beauty is in the differences.

The hero is unique from the heroine.

Yet, their dissimilar backgrounds, races, and cultures, don’t break them.

 
The differences are the heat that sparks the fire.
 
These are one of the reasons why I write interracial romance.
 
Plus, when I read, I go on vacation.
 
When I escape, I want a world that I’ve never seen, filled with characters that can teach me things I’ve never knew. 
 
Presently, there aren’t enough diverse characters in the romance genre.
 
So I write what I want to read.
Other times,
the story simply calls for two characters from dissimilar ethnic groups.
 
 
 
In my novel, No Ordinary Love, I have a black heroine writing a book in Tokyo, Japan. 
 
Choosing a Japanese hero was an obvious decision, and was one of the best parts of writing that novel.
 
But in the end,
and seriously,
I’m embarrassed to say this as a writer.
 
Most romance writers pretend like this isn’t true. . .
that they aren’t secretly sleeping with their heroes every night. . .
 
 
I confess!
 
I’m having sex with all of my heroes.
 
I’m humping the world!
 
I’m going after all the hot men in every country,
and so. . .
I’ll be writing tons of interracial romance!

 

 

About the Book

No Ordinary Love (1)Debt-ridden author Nyomi must complete her book on Tokyo’s underground sex industry in order to revive her stalled career. But first, she needs to get permission from Kenji, head of the Japanese mafia who controls the red light district under his father’s watchful eyes. With one meeting, Kenji traps Nyomi in his gaze and locks her into a deal—spend time with him during her three-week stay, and she will earn the access she needs in order to make her book a best seller.

But Kenji’s plans for Nyomi not only include allowing her a look around, but also a first-hand taste of the kinds of things that go on behind closed doors. And if Nyomi isn’t careful, she just might find herself falling for Kenji, a man with many demons and a passion so dark, it could change everything you think you know about love.

No Ordinary Love is a dark erotic romance from bestselling erotica author Kenya Wright.

Forget Twilight, You Need to Read Blood Shadows

ImageEver since I was a child, I’ve always loved vampires. I blame it on all the Hammer Horror films I watched on channels 17 and 48 (if you’re from the Philadelphia area and you grew up in the 1970s/80s, you’ll know exactly what I mean). Many Saturday afternoons were spent watching movies like the Horror of Dracula, the Vampire Lovers or the Satanic Rites of Dracula. I devoured any books I could find that featured vampires. When I was older, my taste in vampire movies changed a bit–I liked the idea of the sexy vampires–the Lost Boys, Near Darkand the Hunger were high on my list of favorite films. Then came the Twilight vampires. I was not a big fan of the books. The movies didn’t do much for me either. By this point in my life, I still wanted sexy vampires, but I also wanted them to have a dangerous edge. I didn’t want sappy vampires who sparkled.

Now I have a new favorite book to add to my list of vampire novel–Lindsay J. Pryor’s Blood Shadows, the first book in the Blackthorn series. It’s a dark, gritty paranormal romance that’s thrilling, sexy and a definite must-read.

Blood Shadows is set in a dystopian world where humans rule and vampires (and other supernatural beings) are second-class citizens. Enter into this world Caitlin Parish, a shadow reader for the Vampire Control Unit, who is on a quest to find the creature that killed her parents. She uses her VCU mission to hunt down master vampire Kane Malloy, who’s trying to get retribution for his sister’s murder, to further her search. Already from the onset, there is a palatable tension between Caitlin and Kane and as this attraction grows, the reader is pulled in–you know they’re enemies, you know they shouldn’t be together at all and yet you long for it. Perfect!

One thing I hate is when books are too simplistic or when everything ties up a little too neatly, especially suspense or horror novels. I want action, I want complications, I want to be sitting on the edge of my seat. Blood Shadows delivers on all three counts. As Caitlin gets closer to the truth, the pace quickens and the plot twists catch you unawares. I was sucked in, reading well into the night when I should have been sleeping. And I don’t regret it one bit!

After all the Twilight hype and the Twilight copies, I’d begun to lose faith in vampire novels. Now I can say my faith has been restored. Lindsay J. Pryor’s Blood Shadows is the sort of page-turner you never want to end. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. And I think you’ll be hooked too.
