EXCERPT

I woke up to total darkness. I didn’t know if I was dead or alive until I tried to blink, but the pain was worse if I tried to breathe or move, so I figured I must be alive and in hell. Turns out I was right.
I wanted to fight the suffocating fear that came over me. I tried to calm my panic and assess the circumstances.
I was definitely lying in a bed. I felt buried alive. Is there a blanket over my face? Am I paralyzed? Why can’t I move? Why can’t I see or hear anything except incessant beeping?
Hot waves of pain crashed over me, reverberating through every fiber of my body. All the limbs must have been there; I felt pain fucking everywhere. Surely if I had lost some parts, they wouldn’t be hurting so much. Able to move one hand, I used it to explore. Painfully reaching up to feel my face covered with bandages, I discovered wires sticking out from it. My lips were rough and hard; they didn’t feel like lips. I could put the tip of my pinky in my partially open mouth, but then wires and braces stopped it from further exploration. Oh shit, this is going to totally suck.
I moved my hand downward to the bandages covering my chest and then over my stomach to my dick—limper than I ever remembered it being, but at least all in one piece. My entire right side was heavily bandaged, radiating with agonizing pain.
What happened to me? What the fuck happened to me, and what’s coming next?
I started to panic again, which caused the telemetry heart monitor to beep so loudly I didn’t hear the nurse come in.
“You’ll be all right.” The nurse’s hands were firm, yet gentle, as she soothed my arm tied to the bedside. “Try to relax. I’m giving you something in your IV to help you calm down.”
I escaped the only way I could, back into oblivion.

RELEASE ~ COLLARED (ALEATHA ROMIG'S FIDELITY WORLD) ~ LETEISHA NEWTON



BUY ON AMAZON



Death changes us all …

Without my husband, my world caved. The business we built together is a prison. Our home, once filled with laughter and passion, is a tomb for what was. I want to give it all away and find a new place to start over. But the needs inside me, long-hidden whispers, won’t leave me alone. What I crave, a newfound darkness to match the pain, is impossible to ignore.

When Infidelity offers me a chance for fulfillment and a companion with no strings, I grasp it with both hands.

My Master is hurting. He’s filled with agonies and releases them on my flesh. We push and pull, an Owner and his slave, and I am helpless at his feet. But he strengthens me, giving me the power to fight his demons and substitute for what he’s lost.

I wasn’t supposed to fall in love, shouldn’t want to be more than a replacement. But I did, and I do. We only have the agreement between us, but I want him to own me irrevocably. Forever, always, to keep me … 

Collared.

See what Aleatha Romig has to say about one of the newest installments in her Kindle World.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR



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.

RELEASE ~ BOND (PIERCE SECURITIES #6) ~ ANNE CONLEY

New release from Anne Conley!  The latest in the Pierce Securities series, Bond, is LIVE!!!


Bond 

Blurb:  

This has to be one of the weirdest relationships on the books.

Deena Rae is a loner—a strong, independent woman who needs nobody. There is the possible exception of Mr. Fine Ass, with whom she’s begun a strange courtship. He’s certainly a nice diversion from her new job with Pierce Securities and her first solo gig with the company.

Slade is in debt to a man nobody wants to owe, his sperm donor just died, and somehow, Deena Rae knows the half-brother Slade’s never met. He can’t keep his eyes off his gorgeous bitch of a neighbor who keeps her drapes open, even when she’s “entertaining.” He’s told her, though, he’s a train wreck and they shouldn’t get involved.

Deena Rae is riding Slade’s train all the way to the end, whether she likes it or not. Slade is working for her mark, and her mark suddenly wants her dead.



And Slade’s the man who’s got to do it.



Excerpt:
She was still standing by Mr. Fine Ass’s door when she heard a key in the lock that wasn’t locked. Her heartbeat went into overdrive as fumbling at the lock preceded a muttered curse, then the knob turned.

She was totally busted. Panicking, Deena Rae tried to get away, but her efforts were stupid.

She wasn’t in her own place. There was no place to go.

Within seconds, he had her tackled on the floor, facedown, her arms stretched above her head.


His scent was stronger now, enveloping her, along with those muscles she’d glimpsed yesterday. Fear pummeled her as she realized she didn’t know this guy. His body covered hers, but she couldn’t see his face, read his expressions, tell exactly how pissed he was. His face was buried in her neck as he held her down, her face buried in the exceptionally clean-smelling carpet. He was meticulous in his cleaning. The carpets smelled like they’d just been shampooed. Serial killers were clean, she reminded herself, trying to gather the terror she knew she should be feeling. Why wasn’t she feeling it?


Mr. Fine Ass was pretty, but he could be a fucking killer rapist clown for all she knew.

Oh Jesus. She’d never checked the bathroom for clown makeup. That would suck.

“What are you doing in here, Ginger?” His rough growl in her ear sent a shiver of goose bumps racing up her spine. Deena Rae bristled at the Ginger comment but squirmed to get out from under him. It was no use. She was stuck. His grip tightened on her wrists as his legs wrapped around hers to still them.

And his other hand roamed.

His breathing was ragged as his hand explored more than was necessary to make sure she wasn’t packing heat, which she was, but Deena didn’t think they were in the right position for him to find it.

“You know what they say about curiosity and shit.” She shrugged, going for flippant, even as her heart raced. Problem was, she wasn’t really scared anymore. She should have been, but Deena Rae couldn’t muster the fear she needed to fight back.

His hand was definitely doing more than looking for weapons, if the growing length at her backside were any indication. She quit struggling and lay there, limp and defeated. Maybe if she gave off a helpless vibe she could get out of here.

“How did you get in?” His breath was hot in her ear, and if she wasn’t mistaken, his lips brushed it. She was on fire. Thank God he wasn’t looking at her face.

A soft chuckle escaped her. “Would you believe you can learn anything on YouTube?”


A rumble of accompanying laughter came from his chest, pressed against her back, but he raised himself and flipped her underneath him with very little effort.

It wasn’t like she was fighting Mr. Fine Ass, but she was a tall woman. At five foot ten, she’d always wanted a man to handle her, like … well, like a man. Rick sure as hell wasn’t up to the task.

But now she was face-to-face with him, she couldn’t really breathe. And her arms were still pinned at her head.

His face was fucking gorgeous. A small scar under his right eye. Deep-brown eyes the color of teak wood. Full lips. Chiseled cheekbones. Dude could be a model.

One of his crazy eyebrows was quirked up, slightly wrinkling his forehead. “Are you trying to come on to me? If so, this is a bit out of the ordinary.” He was relaxing his body on top of hers, even if he still held her wrists in a death grip above her head and had a massive growing bulge still pressing against her thigh.


“I’ve never been accused of being ordinary,” she breathed at him, wondering where the hell all the air in the room had gone. Her heart was still pounding in her chest, and her breathing was hard and heavy. She knew her breasts were practically in his face, but to his credit, he wasn’t looking. But they were certainly pressing against his ever-so-hard chest.


His eyes flickered from her eyes to her lips, his free hand twining through a tendril of her hair. When they finally snapped back to her eyes, they were filled with resolve.

“This is bad timing, Ginger. My life is a train wreck right now, or I would give this a go.” He smirked as he pressed his bulge into her thigh. “But you really should just stick to your Tuesday Night Specials.”

Since he was relaxed, Deena Rae whimpered a bit, pretending to pout while biting her bottom lip, watching his eyes snap back to her lips. Using the distraction, she wound her legs around one of his and rolled, effectively pinning him under her. He let loose of her arms and grabbed at her hips as she stood.

“Wow. That’s cocky, Mr. Fine Ass. But I hate the name Ginger, and train wrecks aren’t my style.” She managed to get out the door with a little dignity, even though she was embarrassed to have gotten caught and was ridiculously turned on.


But she’d managed to walk out of there with the upper hand, and that’s what was important, right?

BEAR NAKED - LETEISHA NEWTON - PDA KINDLE WORLD

 Bear Naked LeTeisha Newton


Alejandra Perez wants nothing more than to continue writing her Hear Me Roar blog posts and educate today’s women on standing firm, loving their bodies—all curves included—and understanding that love isn’t always necessary. She’s had her own rash of bad luck in that department and she wants others to know love doesn’t have to be the end-all-be-all. When a visitor on the blog dares Ally to see Gerri Wilder of Paranormal Dating Agency to find a date and love, she decides to document the process on her blog. What a perfect way to prove what she’s been saying all along!

Deni and Rich have always been connected in life and individually haven’t been able to find a mate. The two decide it’s because they need one woman who can understand the unique way they are bonded and give their dilemma over to Gerri to find them a mate. The catch? She has to be strong enough to wrangle their bear sides fighting for supremacy over their clan—an issue that puts strain on their friendship and leaves them feeling broken, not to mention it sends the clan into civil war.


Deni and Rich are determined to show Alejandra she’s perfect for them. Failure is not an option, and all is fair in love and mating.

WARNING: Book contains foul-language, a woman decidedly not in distress, but in great need of love from two men who will love her spunk, and hot, kinky sex that will set the pages on fire. If explicit scenes, bad words, violence, and a spanking or two isn’t your sort of book, this isn’t for you. But, if you like it rough, hard, and a whole lot of dirty, come on inside.
