Lyrics & Curses

Candace Robinson
Published by: Filles Vertes Publishing
Publication date: November 10th 2020
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult

Lark Espinoza could get lost in her music—and she’s not so sure anyone in her family would even care to find her. Her trendy, party-loving twin sister and her mother-come-lately Beth, who’s suddenly sworn off men and onto homemaking, don’t understand her love of cassette tapes, her loathing of the pop scene, or her standoffish personality. For outcast Lark, nothing feels as much like a real home as working at Bubble’s Oddities store and trying to attract the attention of the cute guy who works at the Vinyl shop next door—the same one she traded lyrical notes with in class.

Auden Ellis silences the incessant questions in his own head with a steady stream of beats. Despite the unconditional love of his aunt-turned-mother, he can’t quit thinking about the loss of his parents—or the possibility he might end up afflicted with his father’s issues. Despite his connection with lyric-loving Lark, Auden keeps her at arm’s length because letting her in might mean giving her a peek into something dangerous.

When two strangers arrive in town, one carrying a mysterious, dark object and the other playing an eerie flute tune, Lark and Auden find that their painful pasts have enmeshed them in a cursed future. Now, they must come to terms with their budding attraction while helping each other challenge the reflection they see in the mirror. If they fail, they’ll be trapped for eternity in a place beyond reality.

Release Blitz: HART OF VENGEANCE by S.B. Alexander








Love is the deadliest enemy of all.
Convicted murderer Denim Hart swears he didn’t kill one of the most notorious gang leaders in Boston. When he’s released, his first order of business is to clear his name. But he has no clue where to begin. The only witness who could help him disappeared before his trial began.
He might not need the witness when the FBI offers him a deal to expunge his record in exchange for his help. But Denim isn’t a snitch, and no way is he interested in helping The Feds take down his older brother. No matter how many times Denim tells them no, he’s caught in the middle with no way out.
Yet, the FBI is the least of his worries. There’s a contract out on his head. Now, his plan to reconnect with the woman who tortured his dreams for the last eight years is thwarted. Under no circumstances can he let her back into his life. Not until it’s safe.
If Jade Kelly doesn’t find a job soon, her next home will be in some dark alley in Boston. It’s critical she doesn’t screw up her interview with one of the most prestigious law firms in the city. Getting the job might be easy, but keeping it quite another, especially when she learns her potential boss, Kelton Maxwell, is representing the one man she never expected to see again—the one man who walked away from her in high school. The same man who’s incarcerated for murder.
As soon as Denim reappears in Jade’s life, she’s unsure if she should run for the hills or run straight into his arms. She could never resist his seductive charm, and she quickly learns it’s not his sexy ass she needs to run from, but the dangerous gang leader who wants her dead.
Hart of Vengeance is a standalone second chance romance. If you love nail-biting suspense, family drama, a bad-boy hero, a story with twists and turns, and set on the dark streets of Boston, then you’ll love Denim and Jade’s HEA story.
This book is suited for mature audiences.


Kelton Maxwell’s jaw dropped to the table when he saw me. But mine hit the fucking floor when my gaze rounded to the woman sitting next to him. Her silky black hair hung wild and free, and her shiny emerald-green eyes stared back at me. Her round tits appeared bigger than I remembered, and those lips were made to tempt any man, gay or straight.

Her red lips curled slightly, making my knees buckle.

What is Jade Kelly doing here?

My high school days came roaring back with a vengeance. The blood rushed south like a river swollen after a violent storm, causing my dick to throb.

Farley practically pushed me toward the table. “Sit your ass down.”

That was probably a good idea since my dick was growing. I stumbled to the lone chair, not taking my eyes off Jade. My heart punched my ribs as hard as Costa had rammed his fists into my face and gut.

“What happened to you?” Kelton’s voice was deep and commanding, but not enough to make me take my eyes off Jade, who looked everywhere but at me.

A halo shined around her, or maybe it was the light spilling in from the window. Either way, she was an angel. My angel. I’d often lain in my bunk at night, thinking of her, wondering if she was married, had kids, and if she still hated me.

I would give anything to know what was going through her head. The last time I’d seen her was a year before I’d gotten arrested. She’d been walking into a restaurant with her friend Mallory in Roxbury. I’d been in the area, making a drop to a client. I’d almost stopped to say hi, but she had seemed happy, and I couldn’t shit on her happiness.

Kelton snapped his fingers. “Did you hear me? When did you get into a fight? And why didn’t you tell me?”

Jade stared at her blank notepad as her mouthwatering chest rose and fell, drawing my attention to her voluptuous breasts.

I dropped into the chair, but my brain wandered down memory lane, flashing through times when she and I had been naked.

Motherfucker.

Getting laid would be icing on a bare cake. I had a strong urge to kick Kelton out of the room until I could fuck Jade senseless.

“You’re not listening.” Kelton tried to get my attention for the third time.

Jade lifted her head and peeked at me through her long lashes. Desire flashed in her bright emerald orbs.

My dick jerked as I swallowed the sand coating the back of my throat.

“Farley, we’re good,” Kelton said.

No, we weren’t. I wasn’t. With Jade in the room, I wouldn’t be able to concentrate.

There goes my parole hearing.

I mentally shook off images of my girl naked. If I couldn’t get those thoughts out of my head, I would jack off and not care that Kelton and Jade were watching me.

Kelton cleared his throat. “Let’s start again. What happened to you? This will not look good at your parole hearing on Friday.”

The connection between Jade and me snapped. “Why did the parole board postpone?”

“It doesn’t matter,” Kelton said. “It’s in three days, and I’m worried about your appearance.”

“I’ll borrow some makeup from one of the gumps.”

A crease formed in between Jade’s eyebrows. The woman was in for a treat if she wanted to hear about the gay men in prison. But she didn’t need to hear about any of that. She was too pure and innocent.

“Denim.” Kelton’s voice hardened. “How do you expect to display good behavior when your face looks like you ran into an eighteen-wheeler? Is any of this going on your record? Again, why didn’t you inform me?”

I interlocked my fingers in front of me. “No. The warden gave me a pass. And what could you have done if you knew? Besides, I’m healing. You should’ve seen me two weeks ago.”

Jade fidgeted with her pen.

The butterflies inside my stomach were having a fucking party.

“So she works for you?” I asked Kelton.

Jade narrowed her eyes in my direction. Her ball-squeezing emerald eyes penetrated me as if she were trying to take a peek into my black soul. “I have a name.” Her knuckles were white as her delicate fingers clenched her pen.

I’d always loved when she got feisty. Her cute nose twitched, and for some reason that drove me insane with wanting to rip off her clothes.

“Since when do you like the law?” I asked Jade. “I thought you wanted to be a teacher?” She’d talked nonstop about teaching elementary school one day.

Kelton opened his leather binder. “We don’t have time for reminiscing. Save that for if you get parole.”

Jade swallowed, her throat working as she poised her pen over paper.

Please write me a love note like you used to do in high school. I’d always gotten off when she slipped me a note in class, particularly when she’d scribbled the words “I want to fuck you.”

Grateful for the barrier of the table, I lowered my cuffed hands to my lap and adjusted my rock-hard cock.

“Dillon will be at your hearing,” Kelton started. “You’re allowed a family member to speak on your behalf. The board will ask you questions like why you think you should be paroled. Do you have living arrangements? How will you manage challenges? What does your future look like? Are you ready to answer those questions?”

After seeing Jade for the first time in years, I was ready to blow this pop stand because, suddenly, I had a newfound goal in mind. Get out. Track down Jade. Rekindle our relationship.

My Review:

I love Denim Hart!! ❤️ After reading Dillon Hart’s story I had been dying for his brother, Denim’s. I was not disappointed in the least!!

Denim and Jade’s story is a second-chance romance, with plenty of suspense, mystery, family, emotion and lots of heart (and Harts!)
Duke Hart…I wanted to deck him at the beginning and now I’m just still trying to figure him out. But one thing for sure, I can’t wait for his story!!

If you like romantic suspense with lots of heart, then you need to read The Hart series, three books about three brothers. Each book is a standalone, but tied in with the stories of the one before it. You will fall in love with the Hart brothers!!!!



Bestselling author S.B. Alexander writes young adult and new adult romances that span the sub-categories of coming of age, sports, paranormal, suspense, and military fiction. Her writing is emotional, angsty, and character driven. She’s best known for The Maxwell and The Maxwell Family Saga series.
S.B. or Susan as she likes to be called is a navy veteran, former high school teacher, and former corporate sales executive. She’s a lover of sports, especially baseball, although nowadays you can find her glued to the TV during football season.
When she’s not writing, she’s a full-time caregiver to her soul mate of twenty-one years who got a bad deal in life when he was diagnosed with ALS. Her motto: “Life is too short to waste. So live every moment like it’s your last.”

Happy Release Day: Avocado Bliss by Candace Robinson & Gerardo Delgadillo

Title: Avocado Bliss
Authors: Candace Robinson & Gerardo Delgadillo
Publication Date: March 27, 2020

0B951CE6-4A22-466C-8EB4-A7EE786B9A85

Summary :

Dacre Vinson has spent the majority of his life in quite the predicament—even the surf and his books can’t erase his Type 1 diabetes. But when Dacre’s family moves to a new Mexican town, an eccentric girl obsessed with trees offers him a job on the spot, leading to what could be the perfect distraction from his problems.

Salbatora Tames has one true love, her avocado farm. Her family constantly nudges her to be more social, but Sal much prefers the dirt, the sun, and the solitude. Besides, trees listen better than people do.

For Sal and Dacre, their job won’t stay easy breezy for long, not when an avocado delivery to Palenque, Mexico pops up on their radar. Together, they embark on a road trip across the jungle, where they form a tighter bond. However, as obstacles arise, their new-found troubles may lead to more woes than bliss.

BUY AT AMAZON

My Review :

I loved this book!!! It drew so many feelings out of me!!! I absolutely loved BOTH main characters, not to mention some of the side characters. Dacre and Sal both overcame feelings of insecurity, feelings of worry and sadness in their family, and dangers they went through. But through it all they became friends, and then more than friends. It was moving and I admit I got teary eyed more than once.

Robinson & Delgadillo write so well together. Everything flows beautifully and they write such great characters. Bacon Pie was their first book, which I really loved. Now Avocado Bliss was AMAZING!! I think they both love food!!! Lol 😂 I wonder what is in store for their next book?! I hope there will be one!!!

I have to mention the cover!! I really love it, with it’s beautiful colors, the trees, the avocado truck and the silhouette of Dacre and Sal!! BEAUTIFUL!!!

Definitely giving this book 5 Avocados!!!🥑

My Review
:

I’m LOVING this series!!!!!!
It’s not only about a Famous Rock Star and Country’s Sweetheart romance, but it’s about friendship, family, choices, mental illness, loyalty and so much more. When Lianne writes she pours so much heart into her characters. They are so complex and real that you get completely wrapped up in their lives. You feel what they feel, and that’s quite a rollercoaster of emotions.

This is probably my favorite of her series, although I love everything that she writes. I’m excited to see how the last book wraps everything up, and I’m hoping she writes about the other band mates!!!

If you haven’t started this series, do it and you’ll be sooo glad you did!!! If you’ve read the first book, YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS ONE!!!!!

Excerpt

Every night her mother fell asleep atop a deep, dark secret. A box containing a mystery wrapped in the blood of her twins.

She wasn’t a killer. That’s what she told Drew; that’s what she told herself. But now, sitting on the floor of her mothers’ room, she cradled evidence that suggested otherwise. And she had no memory for an alibi.

Today we’re celebrating the upcoming release of Last to Love by Alexa Whitewolf! Read on for an exclusive sneak peek, and a chance to win a signed copy of the book!

Book Cover.jpg

Last to Love (Moonlight Rogues #4)

Expected Publication Date: December 31st, 2019

Genre: Paranormal/ Shapeshifter Romance

He’s the last one standing… So they sent the best one to break him.

Lucas​

Love is for fools. I left all that wuss shit behind, and no fairy-like, smiling godmother will change my mind. I’ve got enough on my mind with a beta pushing my buttons and a town to keep safe. Never mind these urges inside me surfacing again, when I thought I’d buried them for good. ​

My wolves are falling in amore like bowling pins, and no amount of reasoning will make them stop. Now the third one’s gone over the moon, and they all expect me to be the last to love.​

Only, they’ve got another thing coming. ‘Cause the only way I’m falling in love? Is over my dead body.​

Excerpt

Monica

I don’t know why the end of that scene still bothers me hours later. What is it about Lucas’ pack that’s already gotten under my skin? And how did Finn know about my lies?

My cell rings just as I finish bandaging my wounds. Ileana might have taken the herbs I’d brought for Lucas, but my medicinal ones were in another bag. And thankfully, too. With the infusion I prepared and the clean towel wrapped around it, I’ll be good. By the morning, it’ll be more healed, and I’ll have full use of my leg by the day’s end tomorrow.

The ring of my phone grows more incessant. I heave a sigh, reach out for it – and then there’s a knock on my door.

Between that and the call, I choose the door. I’m wearing shorts with a heavy sweater over them, so hopefully whoever it is won’t mind my atrocious sense of fashion.

As it so happens, it’s none other than Luciano there. Arm resting against the door frame, glaring at me darkly like I’m the cause of all his problems. “Why did you help out Finn?”

I roll my eyes and walk back in, leaving the door open. “You really need to work on communication with your wolves. I told Finn why – because I didn’t realize Elle had magic. I…wanted to make sure she didn’t get hurt.”

When he says nothing, I add, “Luciano –”

“Lucas.”

“Fine, Lucas. I know you’re making me into being the bad guy here, but what harm will it do to see your father? Just once. He’s sick, he doesn’t have long to live…”

He steps forward then, as if a decision has been made. “Non ti credo. Your words are lies, that’s why he sent you. But that’s not what I came here for.” Another step, and his gaze heats in warning. That crackling electricity is back between us – and he’s dropping his mouth on mine.

I’ve been kissed before. Some, very skilled. But this is… possession. There is no other way to explain it. Lucas takes charge of my mouth and my body like he owns it, and in that moment, he does.

Will be available on Amazon December 31st!

About the Author

71jGrG+1qaL._US230_

Alexa Whitewolf is a fiction writer, newspaper columnist of daily issues and author of the critically acclaimed Moonlight Rogues shifter series.

Alexa has been a lifelong writer and first began creating other worlds and characters at the ripe age of 12. Growing up in the Transylvania region surrounded by epic mountains and a never ending stream of legends and stories was bound to create an overactive imagination. This shines through Ms. Whitewolf’s writing by creating worlds filled with unique folklore, life wisdom and plenty of furry creatures.

An avid traveler, Alexa writes under a penname and spends her days between an office job and writing, in Canada’s capital when she’s not flying somewhere with lush landscapes and plenty of hiking trails.

Her series focus on strong heroines, kind yet sexy men, fights of good and evil and the never-ending learning curve of humanity’s strong – and weak – points. Romanian folklore is intertwined with her writing, more notably in her shifter romance series, the Moonlight Rogues. Her other series draw on world mythology, such as the Avalon myth and Arthurian legend (the Avalon Chronicles) and Ancient Egypt (The Sage’s Legacy).

You can follow her blog at http://www.alexawhitewolf.com/blog or on social media. Her column in Observatorul also tackles various issues, including health, technology, and a writer’s life.
