Aced (Blocked @3) Cover Reveal

I’m excited to share this book cover with you. If you haven’t had a chance to read Jennifer Lane’s books yet, you really need to. I read her Good Behavior series and loved it.

Title: Aced
Series: Blocked #2
Author: Jennifer Lane
Genre: New Adult Sports Romance
Cover Design: Coreen Montagna (coreenm@gmail.com)
Release Date: December 2, 2015
Blurb
Volleyball wonder Lucia Ramirez found her love match in Blocked despite the glaring political spotlight aimed on her family. In Aced, the second book in Jennifer Lane’s Blocked series, it could be her brother Alejandro’s turn to get lucky in love.
Medical student Alejandro’s hot Latin looks get him plenty of attention, but his deep faith and admiration for his father keep him on a righteous path, with no time for something as frivolous as love. He strives to do the right thing—study diligently, take care of his siblings, represent the family well—so why does he feel so unfulfilled?
Enter Lucia’s friend and teammate Maddie Brooks, who shines at blocking the ball and acing the serve. Too bad this graduating senior isn’t so confident about her life off the court. Her longtime boyfriend has just bailed on her, and med school applications loom large. Oh, and a nerve-wracking tryout for Team USA also approaches.
Maddie meets Alejandro when he visits Lucia at school, and she’s soon drawn to his sharp mind. Alejandro is similarly intrigued by Maddie’s talent and strength. But will personal biases and family politics smother the slow burn of their attraction? Unless Maddie can learn to believe in herself, and Alejandro can become his own man, their kindling romance hardly stands a chance.
Will either of them be bold enough to try something new? Find out in this emotion-rich story that refuses to shy away from life’s hardest questions. Because love is worth the risk.

Excerpt 1: Alejandro

I’d only seen Alejandro on TV, but his presence seemed magnified in real life. He was Jaylon’s height but probably weighed thirty pounds less. He moved like a panther, sleek and long in a black suit “dressed down” with no tie. His short black hair shone in the arena lights, and he appeared freshly shaven. Hot damn! He sure looked more suave than any college boy I’d encountered. Was that the typical dress for medical school at Johns Hopkins? Probably not. Something told me Alex did things his own way.

As Alejandro approached, Lucia stood to hug him, shaking her head. “Hey, what’re you doing here? You didn’t tell me you were coming.”

He smiled. “Could we go somewhere to talk?”

She glanced at me. “I don’t want to leave Maddie. I dragged her here, so it’d be rude to abandon her.”

“So this is the famous Maddie.” When Alejandro reached across to shake my hand, his dark eyes burned into me. “I’ve seen you play, but it’s good to finally meet. I’ve heard great things about you.” His handshake was firm, but his hand was soft and warm, zinging a surprising thrill right through me. I realized that for at least a few moments, I hadn’t thought about Jaylon. Alejandro let go all too quickly.

His expression sobered as he looked back at Lucia. “I want to talk to you about something in private.”

She folded her arms across her chest as they both sat. “I already said no, thank you. I can’t right now.”

He frowned and squared his shoulders. Then he leaned in to Lucia’s ear and spoke to her in Spanish. She bristled next to me.

“How dare you?” she hissed.

I leaned back. What had just changed my sweet Rez into a pissy hellcat?

Home to You
by Taylor Sullivan
Suspicious Hearts #1
Publication Date: 10 August 2015
Genres: Contemporary, Romance

HomeToYoueBook

At twenty-six, Katie McGregor has hit rock bottom. She’s done reckless things a good girl like her never thought she’d do. Like hiring a private investigator to spy on her sleazy boyfriend, walking out on her job without notice, and driving all night back to the one man who’d never left her thoughts.

Jake Johnson. The boy next door. The one whose glance always made her pulse race, whose touch made her knees weak — and whose words broke her heart.

Three years ago, both reeling from the death of her brother and Jake’s best friend, they’d moved apart and retreated into their careers. Now, Jake has it all, and Katie has… nothing but memories.

Katie is thrilled when Jake welcomes her into his home with open arms and the same sexy smile. But is he the same jock who didn’t do relationships and treated her like a little sister? And with so much between them, how can they overcome the hurts from the past to ignite a love that perhaps has smoldered all along?

Check the fabulous trailer. CLICK HERE

Format: E-book and Paperback

Publisher:Kelly Lincoln

Editor: Editing 4 Indies

Blurb

Due to explicit language, sexual content, and dark themes, reader discretion is advised.

When Taylor was four years old, she became an orphan and her childhood spiraled into darkness.

She spent years lying, hiding, and avoiding any love offered to her until she was old enough to run

away from all the threats of her past.

Now twenty-two, Taylor doesn’t think she’s worth more than being the kind of girl a guy hooks up

with in the back room of a bar after her band plays. She definitely isn’t the one you bring home to

meet Mom and Dad.

An unlikely rescue puts her in Ethan’s sight. He’s her total opposite, though. Ethan is a sexy dork who

sees beyond Taylor’s guarded exterior. He sees past the tattoos and piercings. He sees her.

But they both have secrets capable of destroying their relationship. And if Taylor’s past ever catches

up with her, the consequences could be deadly.

EXCERPT

My breath caught when he stood behind me to look over my shoulder. We weren’t touching, but my

skin broke out in goosebumps and my body ached for contact with his. Heat swirled in my stomach

at the thought. How easy would it be to lean back against that awesome chest and have those killer

arms hug me? I gripped the table to keep myself from doing anything stupid.

“Beautiful,” he said softly.

“Cool.” I shined the enlarger on the paper and picked up the photo after I turned it off. Ethan was

still behind me, and I swallowed as I turned around. Looking at him in this sexy orange lighting was

really—

A quiet popping noise invaded our silent room, and the orange light went out, leaving us in darkness.

I flinched in surprise, brushing against Ethan. He put his hands on my arms. “The light burned out.”

 

I laughed, trying to distract myself from my tingly arms. “Yeah, Captain Obvious. I can tell.”

He laughed softly. “I have another one, I’ll go change it. We just have to…” His grip tightened, and he

drew me closer to him as he turned me so we switched places. One hand moved off my arm and to

my back as his voice dropped. “Trade places. Because it’s on the shelf.”

“Right,” I whispered. When he moved us, I dropped the paper, but I really couldn’t have cared less

now that his arms were around me. Without thinking, I reached out and held my breath when my

fingers brushed against smooth skin. I trailed to the side and found his hair. Moving along the side of

his face, I stopped right before his chin and hesitated. Touching him was so ballsey. He might not

want me doing this.

When I stopped, he let out a soft groan, and his fingers moved under the hem of my shirt, barely

grazing the skin of my lower back. I took a shaky breath and raised my other hand, tracing the planes

of his face, the one line across his forehead, the rise and fall of his glasses, the bridge of his nose,

and the indent in his chin, so slight it was barely noticeable. His thin top lip. His full bottom one.

Over and over again, and his breaths came out deep as his fingers kept moving lightly against my

bare skin.

I whimpered as he put his other hand on the side of my face. Fucking whimpered.

“I like this,” he whispered as his fingers followed my eyebrows, over the piercing and down toward

my cheek.

I kept tracing his lips as he touched me, all too aware of the strong ache between my legs. “Me too,”

I breathed.

My pulse echoed in my head as his hand rested under my chin with his thumb on my lip ring. Neither

one of us moved.

I couldn’t fucking handle it anymore. “Ethan?”

“Yes?” his soft voice replied.

“Kiss me already.”

I’m so excited to finally share Blind Love with you!!

 

BlindLoveCover

Title: Blind Love

Author: Kishan paul

Release Date: June 2, 2015

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Samhain Publishing

She doesn’t need a hero. But a sexy Marine…that’ll work.

Though Lauren Baxter’s world is a blurry mess of colors, she has no tolerance for pity. With the help of her guide dog, Jack Sparrow, she’s built a good life for herself. She has everything she wants: her PhD, a thriving counseling practice and her independence.

When she meets her new neighbor, the man’s warm Texas accent and clean male scent weaken her knees. Her attraction to the former Marine is mutual and, unfortunately, a complication she doesn’t need.

Gabriel Briggs carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. He has his reasons for indulging only in short-term flings, but the feisty, green-eyed Lauren makes him want to forget every one.

In a rare moment of fragility, Lauren winds up in Gabe’s arms. One night together can’t break their self-imposed rules, right? But when a woman from Gabe’s past is murdered, the reasons he should have stayed away become painfully clear, threatening innocent lives he may not be able to save—especially Lauren’s.

Product Warnings
Contains a blind therapist who doesn’t consider herself impaired; a meddling, erotic-novel-writing best friend; a hot ex-Marine with a shady past; and a loyal guide dog that howls “I love you” and is probably the sanest one of the bunch.
