We have a winner for my Foster an Author giveaway!
Congratulations to Chris Medio, who was randomly chosen by Rafflecopter as the winner! 😀 Chris, your prizes should already be in your inbox! 🙂
Today is the final day of Foster an Author. I’ve had a great time hosting K.A. Duggsy and Lexi C. Foss and I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know them and their work! To cap off this week, I’m having a giveaway–one lucky winner will receive a $15 Amazon gift card + Kindle versions of Advance by K.A. Duggsy and Blood Laws by Lexi C. Foss. But hurry–the giveaway ends on Saturday night. I will announce + contact the winner on Sunday. Good luck!
Please note this is not a stand alone. This is the third and final book in the Advance Industries series. Books 1 and 2 will need to be read first in order to make sense of the story.
Blood Laws is my first book written by Lexi C Ross and I loved it! I could not put it down and could not wait to start reading the next book in the series. The concept is different to what I have read before and definitely captivated me and felt like I was walking through the story with the characters.
– Amazon Reviewer
Forbidden Bonds is an action packed, paranormal romance with a unique world and well developed characters. Lexi’s writing is engaging, the story is interesting, and I never wanted to put the book down. I had an awesome time diving back into this world, and I think you will, too. I bet you’ll enjoy your time there even more this time around!

Reunited but at what cost?
Because when time is involved, everything can change in an instant.
After travelling away from Advance Industries Faith and Kye find themselves in an unfamiliar city.
Facing new enemies, old grievances and dealing with the impossible decisions awaiting them.
Faith has emerged as a new woman. Determined to control her own destiny, but Kye is just as determined to right the wrongs they caused.
Which will win?
Morals or love?
Sometimes, the one we want most is the one we’re best off without and love doesn’t always conquer all.
They need to decide whether to listen to their hearts or their heads and they need to do it fast before their enemies close in.
**Please note this is the second book in the series. Book 1 Advance does need to be read first for this to be understood.**
Law school taught me a lot of things, but nothing could have prepared me for Will Mershano. He’s confident, hot as hell, and way too tempting. But I have a deadly secret, and he doesn’t play well with others. If he finds out what I’m doing with Will, I’ll be risking more than just my heart…

“Air-conditioning is…” I trailed off as my eyes landed on the casually dressed man waiting by the hostess stand. “Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me right now!” I spun around and glared at the grinning couple. “I hate both of you.”
The warm chuckle behind me made my stomach flip. It always did that in his presence, against my better judgment. Seduction seemed to ooze from Will Mershano, wrapping everyone in the room in his alluring web. Including me. And I despised it. I had my doctorate in turning down men, yet this one maneuvered around each of my denials with the skill of a professional athlete. And his sport of choice was flirting.
“Hello, Rachel,” he murmured.
I ignored the shiver traversing my spine and further narrowed my gaze at Sarah. “This was not what I had in mind for dinner.”
“He insisted,” was her excuse.
“Oh, I just bet he did,” I snapped.
The millionaire playboy redefined the meaning of the word persistent.
I turned to meet his dark eyes, so similar to Evan’s, but with a hint of deviousness. Their familial relation showed in their height and broad shoulders, but Will’s nose had a slight bend to it and his jaw was dusted with fine blond hairs as opposed to dark ones. Both men possessed an aristocratic air, screaming wealth and superiority, but there was a playfulness to Will that Evan seemed to lack. Carefree seemed to be Will’s persona of choice.
“No,” I said in greeting. A word I seemed to say a lot in his presence. Of course, he never listened, just took it as a challenge to change my mind. We’d been playing this game for months, ever since he first showed up in my office with that damn contract that Sarah requested I review on her behalf.
“No?” He cocked a dark blond brow. “But you haven’t even heard today’s proposal yet.”
“I don’t need to.” There was no way in hell I would work for him. First, it required leaving Chicago and living in North Carolina. Which right there was a deal breaker. Not because of my love for the city, but because of something, or rather someone, who would never let me leave. And second, it meant joining Will’s staff. Not necessarily a negative, except I would report directly to him. My hormones could not handle short bouts of time with the man, let alone a long tenure of employment.
“The answer will always be no.” He could try to entice me with food and charm all he wanted, I would never agree.

Welcome to Day #3 of Foster an Author 3. Ready to get to know more books from K.A. Duggsy and Lexi C. Foss? Read on, my friends. 🙂

“Gentleman,” Tom greeted after assembling the communication unit. “Blake sends his regards. Who wants to dance next?”
Knowing his words would reveal his location, he moved deeper into the parking lot on the other side, away from the sidewalk and farther from Amelia. He really hoped she’d been smart enough to hide in the car and not try to find him.
“Hello, son,” his father replied. “You mind telling me what the fuck you’re doing?”
John Fitzgerald using curse words brought a smile to Tom’s face. He’d thoroughly pissed off the CRF’s CEO enough that he had lost his cool over the communication channel. Nice. How far could he push him?
“Right now?” Tom asked, voice low. “I’m taking out your unit. Or did you mean in general?” A flash of metal grabbed his attention. Sentinel Charlie was in a crouch position thirty feet to his left and facing the wrong direction.
Tom shook his head. How many times had he told the man to watch his six? Idiot. He took a detour around a few cars to sneak up on his former teammate while John spoke.
“The asset is messing with your head, son. You need to come in so we can fix the issue.”
Tom suppressed a snort at that plan. Fixing the issue no doubt equated to torture and eventual death by brainwashing techniques. Because Tom was built not to break, and his father knew that better than anyone.
He slammed his pistol into the back of Charlie’s skull and sighed as the man went down. “Well, that wasn’t even any fun,” he said. “You really ought to send Charlie back to training, John. He still hasn’t mastered surveillance.”
***WARNING*** Please note this novella contains some scenes you may find distressing.18+ Only.
I was strong…once! I had friends and a great social life.
My ex took it all.
He made me change. Now I’m nervous, anxious and self-doubting. I hide away safe in my bubble until I meet… Mr dirty blues.
He makes me want to start again, to stop letting my past control me.
But can I trust myself to trust in him?
Can I let him in?
Or will I fall again?
I’ve been forced to join the family private eye business. A job I have zero interest in. I do my duty though, hoping to heal the rift between my brother and I.
Mum and dad are both…gone, so we only have each other.
Yeah, so life is pretty shit. I’m a moody prick dwelling on my losses.
She teaches me to feel again, to laugh and I’m addicted.
Enola Elias suffered an horrific attack at the hands of her abusive ex, James Stanwell. Years later still physically and emotionally scarred, struggling with debilitating self doubt and trust and anxiety issues she attempts navigating through life again starting with a blind date. She meets Carey Cooper who is dealing with his own demons after his mothers death and fathers suicide. He’s become unenamoured with life and is just going through the motions.
When they encounter each other again, their barriers begin to break and they take a chance on one another.
Learning that her ex James is due to be released from prison, unleashes painful emotions and memories of a past Enola is still trying to overcome.
Mistakes have been made and someone has to pay.
Will Carey and Enola get their Today, Tomorrow, Forever?
‘Fate is a hoax’
‘God is a story’
‘And happy ever after really is a fairytale’
I’m a changed man. Yep that’s me. I’m drowning in the depths of despair and consumed. Consumed with the unrelenting need for revenge. There’s only so much loss a man can take and I’ve reached my quota! I’m done. I’m ready to re-unite with my baby. I just have one last job to do, the most important task I’ve ever committed myself to.
I won’t fail. I can’t fail.
Carey Cooper met and then lost, the love of his life Enola in a matter of weeks.
He wants nothing more than to be re-united with his love again but first he needs revenge.
‘Unfortunately, underneath we all have a split personality just waiting to be set free.’
You know those people? You do. We all know someone like it. Those people that aren’t happy unless there is drama in their lives. Unless everyone’s attention and focus is completely and undividedly on them. The ones you roll your eyes at because they’re so obvious, so annoyingly transparent and clearly lacking some desperately needed honesty in their lives.
Yep. Those people.
But, what happens when the unreality becomes startlingly real?
What happens when you realise that you are one of them?
Compulsive liar. Check
Sympathy whore. Check
Drowning in disillusion. Double check.
I say I’m dying. They say I’m lying.
Like the little boy that cried wolf, I’m no longer believed.
But just like the lessons learned from that story – they’re about to receive an education.
A wake up call, if you like.
There’s no reasoning with crazy and they’re about to learn that the hard way.
My identical twin sister thought it would be funny to audition for a dating show under my name. I’m not laughing. But Evan’s unexpected proposition is one I just might accept, and enjoy…

“Demanding little thing, aren’t you?” He rolled onto his side, keeping that arm tucked under his head while the other fell over his flat abdomen. “What if I want something in return?”
He brushed his knuckles over my cheek and down my neck, pausing at my collarbone. “Kissing with a little light petting might encourage me to get you that phone charger sooner rather than later.”
I scooted closer, craving his intimate touch. “Upgrade light to heavy and you have yourself a deal, Mister Mershano.”
“I like the way you negotiate, Miss Summers.” His hand wrapped around my neck, and his thumb caressed the tender skin behind my ear.
“Feel free to proposition me anytime,” I whispered, his lips an inch from mine.
Happy Monday! Welcome to the start of Foster an Author Week! I thought it would be fun to get to know K.A. Duggsy and Lexi C. Foss so I asked them both to answer a few questions. Let’s see what answers they came up with!

K.A. Duggsy: My children, keys and my phone. Super boring answer, I know but very practical.
Of all the books I’ve written, I would say Blood Laws is my favorite because it was the first story I allowed others to read. Stas and Issac will always hold a special place in my heart.
Tomorrow is the start of Foster an Author Week and it’s my third time participating. So what is Foster an Author? Jo and Isa from Jo & Isa Loves Books and Read Review Repeat Blog & Literary Promotions have organised this fantastic annual event as a way to help highlight new authors to readers.
