**Cover Reveal & Giveaway** A FATHER'S FIGHT (Fighting #5) by JB Salsbury








RELEASE DAY: January 26, 2015





SYNOPSIS:


Life changes in the span of a heartbeat. One, tiny heartbeat. 

Blake and Layla have lived through disappointment and regret, only finally finding relief with the powerful love they have for each other. A love they intend to fight to keep. 

They’ve had to forgive each other, but can they truly move forward without facing the pain of the past?

Layla’s been avoiding the phone calls. Nine months pregnant and exhausted, she doesn’t want the complication. But she can’t run from the truth. Whoever’s calling was there eighteen years ago. Unlike her, he remembers the night that changed the course of her life, and he’s ready to talk. 

Blake’s preoccupied with an email, a few simple sentences sent through cyberspace that have the capability to rob him of his sanity, his freedom, and the people he loves most in the world. When he’s called home for a mysterious reason, leaving Layla isn’t ideal, but hope for reconciliation combined with his brother’s secrecy ignites a curiosity he refuses to ignore. 

Putting the pain behind them is no longer an option.

To get the answers they need, they must face the past and open up old wounds that threaten to bleed them dry.

**Blog Tour Excerpt & Giveaway** THE LIBRARIAN PRINCIPLE by Helena Hunting












SYNOPSIS:

Annaliese Harper knows that one tiny mistake can jeopardize a career before it’s even begun. Letting your boss find the extensive collection of porn on your personal laptop is one way. Sleeping with him is another. Liese manages to do both.

As the new librarian at a prestigious small-town private high school, Liese is drawn to her sexy, charismatic principal, Ryder Whitehall—an attraction she refuses to acknowledge given their relationship and her recent liberation from a delusional ex-boyfriend.

Liese is certain Ryder’s flirtation is the product of her sex-deprived imagination—until he discovers her digital porn stash during working hours and demands a private meeting. Behind closed doors, their attraction explodes into a dangerous, passionate affair that not only threatens their jobs and reputations, but most of all, their hearts.
 





EXCERPT:


“We shouldn't be doing this right now,” he murmured.
“Probably not,” Liese whispered and bit his bottom lip while fumbling with his belt. No amount of reasoning could justify what they were doing, or the fact that they were doing it in his office right after they'd had a conversation about her stalker ex-boyfriend.
“Fuck,” he muttered as his hand moved lower to search for the hem of her skirt.
“Funny. That's exactly what I was thinking.” Liese grabbed his shirt and yanked it from his pants.
Frantic hands pulled at clothing, untucking and unbuttoning until Liese's skirt was shoved up around her waist and Ryder's erection left his boxers. She pushed him down into his chair and tried to straddle him, but it was too awkward a position. The driving need to touch each other made them both impatient. Ryder spun her around, and Liese groaned quietly as his fingers dipped low to find her ready. He kissed her lower back and then pulled her down onto him. 
They exhaled a soft moan in tandem as he slid in deep and stilled. Ryder pressed his face against the back of her neck, kissing her skin as he inhaled.
“We really need to be quiet,” he said, his voice muffled by her hair.
Liese pressed the heel of her palm to her mouth. Lips parted, she bit down to stop herself from making audible noise. They stayed motionless for a few moments, breathing heavily together. 
Eventually he began to move. Liese closed her eyes, absorbed in the sensation. She dropped her hand from her mouth to grip the armrests as he lifted her—retreating and filling, again and again. He took control, moving her over him at an unyielding pace. The chair squeaked softly with each thrust, but their need for each other trumped the fear of getting caught.
“I want you to come,” Ryder entreated in a desperate request. 
His fingers travelled lightly between her breasts and over her stomach to graze the place where they were joined. Liese parted her legs farther, then dropped down onto his erection, grinding in a slow rhythm.
He wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her against his chest. The hand between her thighs found the place in need of his attention, and Liese bit her tongue to stop the moan that threatened to escape. 
Her fingernails dug into the nape of his neck as she turned and brought his mouth to hers. A strangled sound left him when she sucked his tongue between her lips. Sensation washed over her, warmth flooding her body to drag her down into the sweet undertow.
Ryder shuddered beneath her, peppering her lips and jaw with soft kisses.
“Does this mean you've given up on the no-naked clause?” she asked.
Ryder hummed and kissed her neck. “You don't look naked to me.”
“You sneaky—”
The phone rang, startling them out of their post-coital bliss. As the haze lifted, Liese became very aware of their location. They'd just had sex in his executive chair in the middle of a school day. She scrambled off his lap and Ryder rolled forward, taking several deep breaths before slamming his thumb down on the speaker button.
“Yes?” he barked. 
Liese cringed at his tone as she hurried to fix her skirt and retrieve her panties from the floor beside his desk.
Betty's voice filtered into the room. “Sorry to interrupt you, Mr. Whitehall. I know you're in the middle of a meeting, but you have a visitor.”
*IF you want to avoid the sex, it could start here:
Ryder stared at the phone wide-eyed; Liese didn't want to imagine who could be waiting for him in the front office. It had to be someone important to make him look so frantic.
He covered the mouth piece and turned his head to the side to clear his throat. At the same time he furtively tucked himself back into his pants. “Pardon me?” He shot Liese a worried glance as she shimmied her panties up her legs and smoothed her skirt down. She surveyed his reaction, gauging her own unease based on his body language.
His rigid posture relaxed, albeit minutely, his eyes reflecting a new kind of disquiet. “I thought she wasn't going to be here until the end of the day,” he bit out irritably. “Tell her I'll be with her in a minute.”
He hung up and met Liese's petrified gaze. She hastily buttoned her navy blazer, thankful she'd worn it, seeing the rumpled mess her blouse had become. 
“My sister is early,” Ryder said through gritted teeth. He tightened his tie and fastened his own suit jacket to cover the majority of his dishevelment. 
“Oh, God! That's not good.” She ran her fingers through her hair, trying to tame it. 
“It could be a hell of a lot worse.” Ryder stepped forward and brushed her hands away from her hair, smoothing it out for her. His fingers caught in a tangled section, and he had to work to free them.
“It smells like sex in here.” She straightened his tie and stepped back, looking around the room for a secret exit; there wasn't one.
Ryder opened the top drawer of his desk. Wielding a can of room deodorizer, he released a spray of overpowering scent into the room. “Better?”
Liese grabbed the can, covering her mouth and nose so she didn't breathe in the fumes. “Now it smells like sex in a flowerbed. This stuff is horrible. Where did you get it?”
“It was in there when I took the job.” He motioned to the drawer. “It's better than my office smelling like sex. Isn't it?”
“Not really.” 
“Well, does it even mask it at all?” 

“I think so. It's hard to tell though.” Liese sniffed the lapel of her blouse. “I'm saturated in the smell of you.”

**Blog Tour Excerpt & Giveaway** PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES (Picking Up the Pieces #3) by Jessica Prince










SYNOPSIS:

Living in the small town of Cloverleaf, watching her friends settle down one by one, all Lizzy wants is her own happily ever after. But with each failed date she starts to believe that finding the one man who will look at her like she’s his reason for living is practically impossible. 
Trevor has had feelings for Lizzy since stepping foot into Cloverleaf, but despite their intense chemistry when they first met, the feisty little redhead friend-zoned him before he ever had a chance to make his move. After watching her date every loser in town he’s finally decided enough is enough. Thanks to a drunken weekend in Vegas, he finally has the one thing he’s always wanted…Lizzy as his wife.
But just because he caught her doesn’t mean he’ll get to keep her. Can Trevor and Lizzy push the boundaries of friendship and build a relationship that can truly last, or will they crash and burn before they ever get off the ground?


EXCERPT:


The minute I saw Brett’s hands on my girl’s bare skin, I lost it. All rational thought flew out the window as red coated my vision.
Hard-on all but forgotten, I stomped to the shoreline and stood staring in their direction with my hands on my hips as they played around in the water.
“Trevor, you getting in?” Lizzy called from a couple yards away when she saw me standing there. 
“You mind getting your filthy troll hands off my woman, asshole?” I shouted loud enough for everyone in the general vicinity to hear. Our friends all laughed at my outburst as an uptight mother a little ways down from us scowled and dragged her kid off, out of earshot.
“Trevor! There are children around!” Lizzy yelled as she and Brett made their way back to the shore. Brett smiled like a son of a bitch the whole way.
“Don’t give a shit. Want me to watch my mouth then that needle dick needs to keep his hands to himself.” Lizzy rolled her eyes as Brett’s head tipped back in laughter. That douche loved messing with me when it came to Lizzy.
“You’re being ridiculous,” Lizzy stated, matching my stance with her little hands propped on her curvy hips. 
“And you’re hot,” I grumbled, crossing my arms over my chest. “You need to wear more clothes when we’re around other people. Like a suit of armor or something. You got one of those?”

Letting out a frustrated huff, Lizzy put her hands on my bare chest and shoved me out of the way before stomping off in the direction of the rest of our group. I stayed planted where I was and watched her as she walked away, staring at the sexy globes of her ass peeking out from her bikini bottoms as she moved. Jesus, damn it! And I was hard again.

MEET THE AUTHOR:

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That's why God created central air, after all.
Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy--she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says. 
In addition to being a wife and mom, she's also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books--romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it's a passion...there's a difference. Not that she'd expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

**New Release Blitz with Excerpt** WHATEVER IT TAKES by JM Stewart



Whatever it Takes




HiRezWIT




SYNOPSIS:

She’s been dying to hear the words…

Walking away from her husband was the hardest thing Becca Morgan has ever done, even if it was the only way to save her heart from being broken by a loveless marriage. Still, when a terrible accident forces her to stay at her ex Jackson’s house for a few days, emotions she thought she’d buried long ago start coming to the surface—and, to her surprise, seem to be reciprocated…

 …he just doesn’t know how to say.

 Jackson Kade has never known love like he knew with Becca, but his cold upbringing left him unable to show her how deeply he feels. When Becca winds up under his roof once more, he knows it’s his only opportunity to prove his devotion—and passion. But old habits die hard, and even one mistake could shatter their last chance at love…



EXCERPT:


“What are you afraid of, Jack?” She stiffened her spine and stood straighter. “That you might actually feel something?”

As quickly as he’d shut her out, he pivoted and stalked across the deck toward her. She took a step back, but in a few long strides, he reached her, seized her waist, and dragged her against him. As her body hit his, a gasp escaped, but she could only stare at him, stunned. A war raged in the depths of his eyes. More emotion than she remembered seeing there in a long time. Desire, anger, pain, frustration, all fighting for supremacy.

She braced her hands on his chest, to push him away, but his head dipped down, his lips brushing over hers, the barest of kisses.



“Or else I may do something I’m pretty sure you’ll hate me for in the mornin’.” The low huskiness of his voice washed over her like a heated caress, sending shivers down her spine, and obliterating whatever defenses she’d manage to build against him. “The feel of your hands on me about drove me mad. Do you have any idea how aroused I am right now? I’m two seconds from picking you up and carrying you upstairs.”

** A @TastyBookTours Blog Tour with Review, Excerpt & Giveaway** PLAY ME SERIES #1-5 by Tracy Wolff @tracywolff

















SYNOPSIS:


All FIVE novellas in PLAY ME by Tracy Wolff, a sizzling new serial from Random House Loveswept, are out NOW!

In the seductive all new eBook original serial from the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, a woman running from her past has finally found a bit of control . . . until her powerful new boss makes her go wild.

My name is Aria Winston. I’ve fought desperately to make my own life, away from the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I’m on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.

Working as a cocktail waitress at one of Vegas’s hottest five-star casinos means putting up with a ton of bad behavior from the big spenders. But it pays the bills—and that’s all that matters to Aria as she needs every last dollar to escape from her father’s destructive grasp and the brutal man he expects her to marry. But when she lashes out against a billionaire who won’t take no for an answer, she nearly loses everything—until Sebastian, steps in.  The owner’s son and handpicked successor, Sebastian is dark, sexy and kinder than any rich, powerful man should be.  And when he apologizes and offers to keep her job safe, , Aria can’t help the way her body reacts to his. But if the way her body instantly responds to his touch is any indication, what Aria really wants is Sebastian.  Suddenly her job, and the security it brings her, isn’t all that Aria wants …

Play Me is an erotic serial intended for mature audiences. Aria and Sebastian’s story continues in Play Me: Hot.

Check out all five serials out NOW!



**Fans of Wolff’s bestselling Ethan Frost series will be excited to learn that the characters in Play Me are closely connected to Ethan Frost and Chloe Girard from Addicted and Ruined—and that Ethan and Chloe make cameo appearances in Play Me. The third installment in the Ethan Frost series Exposed, coming February 2015, will feature the characters from both series.




EXCERPT:


Aria
When I get to his office, I check in with his secretary—an older woman with short hair and a sour expression that reminds me of the nuns at Our Lady of Lourdes, the all-girls Catholic school I attended all the way through my senior year in high school. She tells me to take a seat, but I ignore her. Instead, I wander over to the window and look out at the Strip far below me. From here it looks almost magical—the dirt and porn pamphlets and desperation are a million miles away.
I can’t help remembering a time when they were always a million miles away, a time when the glitter and the glam was all I knew of Las Vegas.
But that was a long time ago and there’s no use looking backward. Or at least, that’s my philosophy and I’m sticking to it. As soon as I can get this damn paycheck and be on my way.
I brace myself for a long wait—I can’t believe a fired cocktail waitress is exactly high priority to Richard Caine—but barely a couple minutes pass before the nun in civilian clothing tells me to go in.
I head to the door leading to the office’s inner sanctum, but before I can so much as touch the knob, it swings open. And reveals a tall, well-built man with the broadest shoulders I’ve ever seen. A man who is very definitely not seventy-year-old Mr. Caine is standing there.
Our eyes meet as I cross the threshold, our bodies brushing in the narrow doorway. And for long seconds I can’t think, can’t breathe. Can’t do anything but stare as my carefully constructed don’t-give-a-shit attitude comes crashing down around my ears.
I don’t want him to see it, can’t let him see it, so I look him in the face, straight in the eyes, just like my mother taught me. But this time, it doesn’t work. This time all it does is make me shakier. Not because he’s a letch like that Russian bastard from last night, but because he isn’t.





REVIEW:


        



Tracy Wolff is a new-to-me Author, I own the Ethan Frost series but somehow I have never sat down and read them, and after reading the Play Me series I will definitely be going diving into my TBR pile to look up Mr. Frost!  The Play Me series is comprised of five short stories that are seamless when read all in one chunk (like I did).  Each part is between 55-75 pages long and packs a lot of story and HEAT in that short amount of space!  While I am not sure why this isn't being sold as one whole book, I did really enjoy reading this series in parts.  Be warned, each part is like a potato chip, you can't stop at just one you are going to devour all five in one sitting.  (It may save you time to buy all five parts at once....)

Tracy Wolff!!  You are a dirty, amazing, story-telling mistress and I was enchanted with Sebastian and Aria characters.  Sebastian is a whole complicated bundle of emotion, control and sex appeal.  I wanted to really get to know him and live in his head for a while, but my Kindle may have melted, so I think Tracy Wolff gave us all we could handle at one time.  Sebastian was fascinating and while I never really understood him completely, I am hoping there will be more of his story being told in future books.  Aria is a strong, complex personality that struggles to remove herself from her past but find herself drawn to Sebastian.  Watching Aria struggle with her attraction/obsession with Sebastian and learning what control truly means was very entertaining.  I like a girl who can take only so much before she starts racking people with her drink tray!

Tracy Wolff has created a wonderful series, starting with Play Me Wild, and kept the pacing, interest and flow strong throughout all five parts of this series (these stories were hard to put down).  The Play Me series isn't your typical BDSM book, it took a different take on this lifestyle than I have read in other books and I found myself drawn into this world she created.  

If you are looking for HOT then the Play Me series is definitely going to be the perfect fit.  If you have been reading Tracy Wolff I am sure you will enjoy this new series and will get the impact of seeing Ethan Frost show up in this series more than I did.  And if you are new to this author like I am, you are going to want to buy these books and then grab up the Ethan Frost series as well (this could be an expense, but very, very fulfilling new addiction).  Enjoy entering the glitter and heat that Tracy Wolff brings to Vegas!




***From Tracy's publicist***
Tracy will write a Christmas story if PLAY ME: Wild gets 100 reviews by 12/20! There will be an additional New Years story if she gets 200 reviews by 12/30! We are over halfway there, but wanted to ask that if have read PLAY ME to please go leave a review on Amazon! Also the review doesn’t necessarily have to be just for the first serial. I understand if its hard to leave a review for each serial because remembering where they ended can be hard and they are so short its hard to write a review, but if you want to leave a review for the entire series just leave it on PLAY ME: Wild page.
