Release Date: August 20, 2019
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Cover Design: Deranged Doctor Design

To him I’m just his little sister’s best friend. To me, he’s the guy I can never have.
I’ve spent countless nights fantasizing about him, wondering what it would feel like to touch him—to be touched by him. Just the thought of being with Sin, allowing him to corrupt my body any way he wanted was enough to tip me over the edge. 
But he’s the forbidden fruit I’ll never be allowed to take a bite of. Even though I’d risk a whole lot just for a tiny taste, I can’t risk my lifelong friendship with Maya. 
I know how to keep my feelings to myself. I’ve been doing it for years. Only problem is, Sin is back from college and I’ve seen the way he stares at me. It’s different, feral—like I’m the craving he needs to sate.
And the thing is…if Sin wants me, Sin will have me.

Before I could tumble down a flight of stairs, my body was pressed hard against the hallway wall. 

“Be careful.” Sin whispered, mouth close to my ear. He had one hand on my hip and the other on the wall next to my head. My body hummed in approval at the close contact. 

Where did he come from? What was he doing up? “Sorry,” I thought he would release me, but he didn’t. Instead, he pressed the lower half of his body against me. Wedging his knee between my legs. 
“Do you have any idea what would’ve happened if I wasn’t here?” His breath fanned across my cheek. His hand traveled up my arm, cupping my neck. “You could’ve broken your neck,” Then back down my arm, “or your arm,” Then finally rested on my hip, “or your hip.” Since I was wearing a tank top it had risen slightly since my near death experience. His hand was resting on my bare skin, giving me goosebumps.

“I-I know.” What was he doing to me? He stared into my eyes, and it might have been my imagination, but it seemed like he was leaning in. Was he leaning in? Was Sin going to kiss me? 

“Just be careful.” As quickly as he showed up he was now gone, leaving me breathless against the wall. Oh my. I continued my venture to the kitchen. I definitely need water to cool down now.

Title: Handle Me
Series: The Heed Me Novella
Author: Elodie Colt
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 14, 2019

I had no idea he had a twin.
And no idea I hooked up with the wrong brother… until it was too late.

I’m Ruby Kingston. Conventional, modest, and hard-core ambitious. My career path is paved. My love life is stable. Well, my friends like to say it ‘lags’ but let them talk…

Jesse understands me. We’re the same in many ways. Duty comes first, college has priority. It’s always been this way, and he’s never let me down before.

Until he abandons me the day I need him most.

Imagine my surprise when he returns sooner, putting his career on the line for my sake.

Our relationship’s better than ever. Perfect.

So perfect even, that I’m starting to wonder… 

Is this really the same man I fell in love with?

Meet Raphael Chandler in Book#4 of The Heed Me Novellas and see for yourself how Ruby fell in love with the wrong brother!
“Una margarita, por favor!” I shout over the blaring music, and the bartender responds with a thumbs-up.

The place is packed tonight. La Puerta de Alcalá is one of the few fancy night clubs in Veracruz. I’ve been here a few times already, getting tanked and chasing the next best chica to warm my bed. Tonight, I’ll save myself the last part and stick to drinking instead. I’m not in the mood for another Mexican diva.

Propping my elbows on the counter, I watch the people go crazy to the beat. The strobes kick in when the song reaches its high, and I wince, turning to face the bar again and briefly closing my eyes to get rid of the haunting images.

Too late.

The electric lights flickering was the first clue that something was wrong. The two vibrations that shook the earth was the first sign that shit was about to hit the fan. And the fireball shooting up the sky was the last thing I saw before something hit me on the head.

It was like the blowout on Deepwater Horizon back in 2010 when a bubble of methane gas escaped from the well and skyrocketed up the drill column. The result—eleven dead crewmen and an offshore oil spill of about eight thousand barrels per day until they managed to close the cap four months later.

The blowout on Sunray Shell two months ago was ‘not as disastrous’ as the news likes to phrase it, but for me, it was my worst nightmare.

Because I was there. Right in the middle of it.

I know it’s not my fault the oil rig blew up like fireworks, but I can’t stop thinking… Could I have prevented it?

About two years ago, I snagged a job at Transocean Ltd. and started working on Sunray Shell, an offshore platform off the coast of Newfoundland. A beautiful island with friendly folks, an amazing culture, and world-class food.

I loved the job. Loved flying with the helicopter to the rigs, getting my hands dirty, and spending time with the crew. I was offshore for six weeks followed by six weeks of leave with enough free time to explore the world.

I worked my ass off to become a motor hand—the guy responsible for the motor parts and drilling equipment. My salary was insane. My life was fulfilling. Finally, I’d achieved something. It was the first time I wanted to keep a job. Period. Maybe work my way up to become a driller or whatever.

But this dream blew up. Literally.

That Monday morning, the ventilation system failed because one of the roustabouts did a lousy cleaning job. Dangerous fumes rose up, and one spark from a power tool was enough to create a blast the likes of which I’ve never seen. I swear, I thought this was the end of the world. Now, the remains of the rig rest on the seafloor of the Atlantic Ocean.

Lucky me, I got away with a concussion. One of the roughnecks found me buried underneath a pipe, snatched me, and jumped overboard with me. A helicopter airlifted us to a hospital. A few hours later, the news reported that three men didn’t make it, one of them my best friend, Wes. I fled the hospital the same day and was off to Quebec by nightfall.

Since then, I’ve never been in one place for more than a month. Making acquaintances, not friendships. Renting stuff, not buying. Visiting places, not settling down. It’s easier for me without attachments and commitments.

Because whenever I manage to fuse the seams, they crack apart. Just like it happened with Lana six years ago…

“You’ve got to be fucking kidding me!” someone shrieks from behind me in a clear, American accent, and I nearly spill my margarita when a slap on the shoulder hustles me forward. Whirling around, I meet wide, blue eyes on a tan face. “How the hell did you know we were here?” Before I can utter a word, the blonde answers her question with a smirk. “Ah, you texted Matthew, didn’t you?”

Uh… what now? Who the fuck is Matthew? And who the fuck is this girl?

I give her a quick once-over, wondering if we’ve ever met. She doesn’t seem familiar. Maybe a quickie from a few years ago? Unlikely. I’m quite picky when it comes to my hook-ups, and blondes are not my first choice. I prefer brunettes. The darker, the better.

But I have to admit, the girl is nice eye-candy. One of those beach bunnies with long, white-blonde hair curling over her shoulders in messy waves, sun-kissed skin, and a splatter of freckles on her nose. Her dress is more like a gown with nothing to show off except for her bare arms and ankles. Too elegant for a night club. Too innocent for a quick fuck.

“Hello?” She clicks a finger in front of my face when I take too long to answer.

Hooking one finger into my belt loop, I send her a lopsided grin. “Sure, I texted Matthew,” I say at last, taking the bait. No idea if she’s mistaking me for someone else, or if this is one these I-just-pretend-to-know-you numbers to initiate an easy conversation, but I’m game. Everything for a little distraction.

“You wanted to surprise Ruby!” she squeals, clapping her hands in excitement. I send her a wink and take a long sip from my margarita. Who is Ruby now? “Oh my God, this will knock her off her feet! Okay, listen…” She motions for me to come closer, and I tilt my head to hear her better. “You stay here, and I’ll get Ruby, all right?”

“O-kay…” I mutter in confusion, not sure what else to say, but the surfer chick is already bouncing off and elbowing her way through the crowd. Huh. If this was one of her pick-up lines, she missed the point, I dare say.

With a shrug, I turn to face the bar again, gesturing for the bartender to hand over another margarita. Whoever this girl was, she was either crazy or high on some serious shit. Whatever. Chances are I’ll never see her again.

Letting my hand vanish into my pocket, I fish out my phone and open Wherever It Takes Me—a little app I’ve programmed myself. It shows the world as a globe with a smiley face and tiny arms and legs attached. As soon as you hit the Off You Go! button, the smiley-globe starts to spin, and a pin marks a random location on the earth. Wherever it strikes, this is the place I’m going to visit next.

To make things easier, I’ve disabled the entire subarctic climate zone. Had enough of that when I flew to Norilsk, Russia, in January. Covered in snow for two-hundred-fifty days and plagued with snowstorms the rest of the year. Truly, a blessed country. Not.

“iPhone, iPhone in my hand, where’s the next place I will land…” I mumble to myself. Clicking the button, I watch the globe spinning until the smiley winks and waves both hands. “West Palm Beach, Florida,” I say out loud, testing it on my tongue. Sounds more like a holiday than an adventure, but maybe that’s exactly what I need.

“Just a few more steps, Ruby.”

I spin around at hearing the now-familiar voice, shocked when I see the pretty blonde approaching again, but this time, she’s brought a friend—a friend with hair like a liquid curtain of chocolate and a timid smile on her face.

“Skyla, what the hell are you up to? I can’t see where I’m going!” she complains, blindly teetering forward while her companion covers her eyes with her hands.

Ruby and Skyla… I let the names tumble inside my head, but nothing clicks. What are the odds that those two chicks are into a threesome? Maybe that was the surprise the blonde meant. And one I wouldn’t negate, that’s for sure.

They both wear the same dress with similar hairstyles, so my first guess is that they are bridesmaids who just came from a wedding. While both look pretty in their gowns, it fits the brunette way better, her busty forefront stretching the fabric.

By the time Skyla pulls Ruby to a halt a few feet in front of me, I’m nearly as excited as them, impatiently waiting for the blonde to drop her hands and reveal the brunette’s eyes.

And when she does, my first thought is that a mermaid materialized in front of me. The silver eyeshadow on her lids enhances her moss-green irises, and her dark, full brows make a perfect arc on her porcelain face. Her milky skin is flawless, and even with the makeup on her face, I know there’s not one blemish. A set of lush pink, heart-shaped lips curl into a smile when she blinks up at me.

A smile that is my undoing.

Because that smile is neither sultry nor mischievous. It’s not the I-know-you-can’t-resist-me, please-take-me smile that I’ve seen a thousand times before. Far from it.

It’s a genuine, heart-wrenching smile that lights up her face as if she’s waited an eternity to see me. A smile no girl ever reserved for me. Not even Lana. The only one she sent those smiles to was Jesse, and—


Shit, what are the odds that this girl thinks I’m my twin brother?

First things first—I’m not an English native speaker. I live in a boring little town on the outskirts of Vienna, Austria, so probably very far away from you! I’m an avid reader and have been reading English books my entire life. When I write, I can’t think in my mother tongue anymore. For a long time, this was the reason I refused to take that leap of faith into publishing, because I feared I could never compete with the others. A year later, I decided it was worth the risk, and now here I am… Crazy!

I’m a hybrid steamy/erotic romance author. Doesn’t matter if contemporary, paranormal, dystopian, or urban fantasy—I write & read them all!

Relationship status—living happily with my boyfriend, not married and no kids, yet. I have a fulltime job in marketing and wish to make a living as an author. Let’s see how this will turn out in the future…

I’m too organized. Everything has its place, everything is planned. Also, I’m always busy and looking for work, which is pretty exhausting sometimes.

I have an uncanny talent for remembering faces and names, but I’m shitty when it comes to directions. I’m not kidding you, I can get lost everywhere, especially on ski slopes!

I love movies, my Kindle Reader, snowboarding, wakeboarding and sunbathing. I hate The Simpsons (I know, I’m probably the only person in the world, but I just can’t warm up to them), zombie movies, and fish (as in the food—got sick once and can’t touch that stuff ever since). 

That’s pretty much the short version of it. If you want to know more or have the feeling you need to stalk me, find me on the usual platforms.

Title: The Dinger
Author: Gigi Birtie
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 12, 2019
Cover Design: Lee Ching at Under Cover Designs

Nash Dingmen aka ‘The Dinger’ didn’t earn his nickname by dominating the hockey rink. No, he’s notorious as the biggest seducer in hockey. It doesn’t help that he carries the sexy, mesmerizing exterior that causes sane women to drop their panties at the curve of his smirk. 

No Mr. Nice Guy. No girlfriends. No second date. 
Or any dates – it’s all between the sheets. 
After my first encounter with Nash Dingmen – I’d hoped I would never see his face again. It was the interview of a lifetime, a chance that it ended up with my dream shattered and becoming the next internet sensation – for all the wrong reasons. 
With my career all but gone, I am barricaded to the house to shy away from the jokes and jibes. Drowning in ice cream and Cheetos but it’s time to get back on my feet – and get my head in the game. One thing’s for damn sure, being his next conquest is not my game plan. My sister Charlie persists there’s got to be more than ‘The Dinger’ reputation precedes – and being a reporter, I’d have to say I’m not entirely against investigating what all the fuss is about…
When hurdle after hurdle comes my way, why does Nash always seem to be there?
Every nerve is screaming at me to run as fast as I can away from him … however, do I really want to? The temptation to play the game to see what the real scoop is beneath ‘The Dinger’ may be too strong to resist.

As a writer and photographer for publication such as magazines, television and radio, I find it easy to write an article or a jingle, but I always longed to write a romance novel. To have a challenge that’s longer than five hundred words. To really dive deep into all emotions that one gets from reading a killer novel. I can only hope I’m doing it right so that people will enjoy and feel the raw grit that I draw from in my personal experiences, that I indeed put into my work.

Though I’m starting this adventure late in my career I’m confident that this has always been the right choice and I’m thankful I finally grew a pair to make it happen. Once I started there was no stopping this crazy train! 

A few tidbits about myself is I love classic cars, motorcycles, going on crazy motorcycle runs, photography, writing and my puppy Bowie Brexlee Birtie, my dude of fifteen years, Mr Birtie who is a huge supporter of all the crazy things I get into, and of course I love reading romance novels!! Definitely not in that order. My girl Bowie is my number one above all things. She listens to all my book ideas, which basically makes her my writing partner. This is just some of what makes me who I am and I hope we all can form a rad writer/reader relationship!

Title: Pricked
Authors: Scott Mooney
Genre: Fairy Retelling
Publisher: Bleeding Ink Publishing
Publication Date: August 13th, 2019
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR


Briar Pryce has the power to change the emotions of others by handing
them a rose. It is a talent that has done surprisingly little for her,
besides landing her a dead-end enchantment delivery job and killing any
chance she had with her childhood-crush-turned-roommate. Worst of all,
her ability might be responsible for getting her best friend transformed
into a cat via a cursed muffin basket. Needless to say, Briar is nowhere
near happily-ever-after. But that’s just life as a twentysomething in
the Poisoned Apple, New York City’s lost borough of fairy-tale wonder
and rent-controlled magic.
When Briar reluctantly agrees to help find a princess’s kidnapped
boyfriend in exchange for reversing the curse on her friend, she gets
the heroic quest she never really wanted. Unfortunately, the life of a
noble heroine is not all it’s cracked up­­ to be – the hours blow, and
Briar suspects that the Royal family employing her might be evil,
Republican, or both. To complete the suckage, a killer smoke magician is
stalking Briar as she searches both the Poisoned Apple and Manhattan for
the missing boy. As tensions between the Poisoned Apple royalty ignite
and civil war looms, Briar must figure out how to write her own happy
ending–or she’ll just be ending.

She lives in the beautiful university city of Columbia, MO with her incredible husband and three girls, and loves yoga- almost as much as living and writing in her own fantasy world.

“I do.”

Two words woven in love.
In sickness and in health.
For better or for worse.
Til death do us part.
And death dragged us apart.
We both said these vows.
But neither of us kept them.
This is not one of those happy stories.
Life isn’t made of simple choices and happily ever afters.
It’s a dark place.
It’s not easy.
It’s full of mistakes and lessons.
It hurts.
And in the end, those two words said in love, are the same ones said in hate.
“You want a divorce?”
“I do.”
