Cover Reveal! His Pretty Little Thief By Madison Faye


Release Date: June 24, 2019


She thinks it’s her who’s the hunter, and me the prey.
She thinks she’s playing me in order to steal what she wants.
...She couldn’t be more wrong.
Because tonight, it’s me who’ll be stealing her.
Tonight she’s mine.


Dear little thief,

I know what you came for. I know you thought it’d be easy. I know you thought I would be easy. Spoiler, it won’t be, and I’m not.

You thought seducing me, and stealing a sample of my...seed, to sell on the black market would be a breeze. Except we both know you’ve never done anything with a man, let alone one as powerful, and rich, and obsessed as me.

I know I should have you arrested. A man with my wealth and my power could ruin you with a snap of the fingers. But I won’t.

Maybe it’s because you intrigue me, little one. Maybe it’s because I enjoy a challenge. Or maybe it’s just because you look so f-ing pretty on your knees saying “please, sir”.

We’ll just have to find out. Let the games begin.

Come and play, little thief. Come and play, so I can play with you.

Release Blitz! Ask Me Why By Harloe Rae



One deep breath. Two slow blinks. Three hollow beats.
I’m still here.
After three years, that reminder isn’t as necessary. But everyone has their bad days. This is definitely one of them.
Until an adorable little boy dashes into my store.
His zest for life makes me smile in a way that’s been long lost.
Then I meet his father.
Well, confront is more like it.

Brance Stone is volatile.
Offensive.
Harsh.
And can’t be bothered to care.
Not that I want him to.
I get frostbite just looking into Brance’s glacial stare. But there’s something undeniable about him.

My misery suddenly craves company. The suffocating numbness lifts whenever Brance is near. That alone should have me running in the opposite direction. Try as I might, there’s no avoiding him. If only I could understand why. As if he’d let me.

I don’t ask. He doesn’t tell. A silent, bitter truce settles between us.
That was our first mistake.
It’s certainly not the last.
I have read a few books by Harloe Rae and while I enjoyed Ask Me Why, for me at least it didn’t measure up to the standard I have come to expect in her books. With that being said, I did like Braelyn and Brance’s story overall, I just wish I would have liked it more. Ask Me Why, for me, seemed to drag on for a bit and I had a hard time connecting with Braelyn for the majority of the book and while I can personally sympathize with her anxiety issues they almost became swept under the rug and never truly were fully faced. Brance was a major asshole, and while I usually love these types of characters I never could fully warm up to him. I did love Ollie though, that little boy is the reason I couldn’t set this aside, he was a sweet addition to the book that brought a happiness to an otherwise unhappy storyline.


Am I going to read more books from Harloe Rae in the future? Yes of course I am and while I had issues personally with this one it is not a bad book by any means, it just wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be.

Brance’s suit is deliciously rumpled. A naughty gleam lingers in his eyes. Evidence of our kiss lingers on his lips, slightly swollen and red. His hair sticks up in sexy disarray, sections pointing in every direction. I curl my fingers, hiding the guilty offenders. But combing through those silky strands will be committed to memory. I want to do that again, multiple times. But I tamp my trampy side down. For now.

He makes quick work of straightening his tie. “You owe me a story.”

A boulder drops in my gut. “Now?”

Brance sweeps the brown locks off his forehead, erasing more proof of our tryst. “Nah, gotta get back to the office.”

“Already?” I’m still recovering from my orgasm.

He smooths the wrinkles from his shirt. “My schedule leaves no time for deviations. I have a full calendar every day. This indiscretion cost me several hours. I’ll be working late to catch up.”

“Was that a dig at me?”

“Does it matter?”

“Really, Brance? Just like that?”

“Were you expecting something else?”

I open my mouth, then close it. Was I? How could I? Brance smirks at my extended silence.

“That’s what I thought.” He tops it off with a wink for good measure.

“You’re such an—”

“Asshole. Yeah, got it. I don’t have time to rehash the details.”

Dear Diary,
Oh, who am I kidding?

You’re cruel. You’re heartless. You’re sick. You’re really damned twisted.
Do you know that?
Nope…
Still doesn’t cut it. 

Dear Fate…yeah, that’s the one.

Cocky football players, school rivalry, and the girls who get in their way!
 Get ready … The Raiders are here!

To celebrate L A Cotton is giving two lucky winners the chance to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card and signed paperback.

The Trouble with You (Rixon Raiders, #1)
From the author of the Wicked Bay series, comes an angsty YA/NA enemies-to-lovers romance.

Hailee Raine only has to survive one more year.
One year of life in her football obsessed town.
One year of nauseating school spirit.
Just one more year of her cruel step-brother Jason; and his cocky, arrogant, football-playing friends.
She hates them. Especially, Cameron Chase, the guy she thought was different.
Cameron Chase has the world at his feet.
He has it all; good looks, talent, and the charm to go with it.
He has colleges lined up at the door, all wanting a piece of Rixon Raiders star wide receiver.
Until something threatens everything he's ever worked for, and only one person can quiet the war raging inside him.
But he's supposed to hate her; his best friend's sister.
She's off-limits.
Untouchable.
She's trouble with a capital T.



Then Hailee finds herself in the middle of a football prank gone wrong...
And suddenly hating each other never felt so good.

The Trouble With You is the first book in The Rixon Raiders series. All books in this series can be read as standalones!


The Trouble With You was a book that I not only devoured in a day, but one that still has my heart aching from the angst! I refused to stop reading it for any reason. From the very start until the last word my emotions went on a roller coaster ride that I will not soon forget. Do you know that angst filled ache that settles in your heart and stomach, one that you know will tear your emotions apart? That is only a fraction of the amount of emotions that were ripped from me.

Hailee and Cameron have an undeniable chemistry between them, but is that chemistry based on mutual hatred, is it sexual, or is it a combination of both? They say that there is a fine line between love and hate and that line is almost invisible with these two. Hailee’s stepbrother, Jason, is Cameron’s best friend and he has helped make her life hell at Jason’s request. It’s their senior year in high school, things are changing and unfortunately for Hailee she becomes the victim due to the school’s rivalry with another team and her stepbrother’s hatred that is always directed at her. She isn’t a doormat though; she fights back against him even when he could destroy her. Things aren’t always what they seem though, pressure is on Cameron’s shoulders as well as the rest of the team. Can Cameron continue his hatred towards Hailee or is there something more happening between them? Well I am not going to tell you obviously but just know that my heart ached for most of the book.


The Trouble With You is the first book in this new series by L.A. Cotton and let me tell you something I already can’t wait for the next book! I have loved L.A. Cotton’s books for a while now and this book whore is ecstatic that we have more books to come! The Trouble With You is a must read for anyone looking for an angst driven new adult bully romance and one that I loved!

Release Blitz! Raphael By Tillie Cole





They are the Fallen. A brotherhood of murderers whose nature compels them to kill. But guided by their leader, Gabriel, the Fallen have learned to use their urges to rid the world of those it is better off without.

For Raphael, sex and death are intertwined. Where there is one, there must be the other. He is a lust killer, luring his victims with the face of an angel and a body built for sin.

And Raphael lives to sin.

His newest mission takes him into the sadistic underworld of Boston’s secret sex clubs, and puts him face to face with his greatest fantasy made flesh.

Maria is everything he’s ever dreamed of, the kill he’s always longed for. She’s not his target. And he knows he must resist. But the temptation is too strong…

Yet Raphael is not the only one with a mission. Maria is not quite what she seems. And as her secrets and Raphael’s unravel, Maria begins to question everything she thought she knew—about evil, about the place she calls home, and about the beautiful sinner she was sent to destroy.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.



The Fallen: Genesis a prequel novella in The Deadly Virtues Series and MUST be read before RAPHAEL (DV: book one).






“Are you ready, child?”

Maria nodded at Father Quinn, trying not to fall into the black well of despair. She had crawled out of the abyss once. She wasn’t sure she had the strength to do so again.

He checked his watch. “It’s past midnight. The club will be brimming with carnal sinners. Do you have your cards?” Maria checked in her purse for the ID card the priests had supplied her with and the card that allowed her into the club. Father Murray told her no questions would be asked of her—it was club policy. “Keep that purse with you at all times. And press that button when you see him, or if you feel you are in danger.” Maria nodded again. Her voice was silent as she mentally prepared for what was about to happen.

Maria made for the door, but Father Quinn stopped her with his hand on her arm. She spun around, and Father Quinn pushed a rosary into her hand. Maria had left hers at the convent for safekeeping. She missed the beads as they slipped through her hands in prayer. “Keep this with you, Maria. Do not wear it around your neck or have it where anyone will see. But keep it with you for courage. To know the Lord and Mother Mary are with you.” As soon as the rosary was dropped into her palm, peace filled her. She looked at the new rosary in her hand and studied the red beads and ornate silver cross, Jesus hanging on the crucifix, redeeming mankind’s sins. On closer inspection, Maria noticed a miniscule “B” carved into Jesus’s chest. “It’s beautiful,” she whispered. “But what does the ‘B’ stand for?”

Father Quinn’s eyes flashed with something she couldn’t understand. But he quickly recovered enough to say, “I was told it was originally to represent the Boston archdiocese.” Maria nodded, although she was surprised she had never seen such a design before. Father Quinn laid a hand on her shoulder. Maria froze. She wasn’t comfortable being touched. Especially by a man. Father Quinn leaned in close. “But I like to think it stands for ‘Baptist.’ As in John the Baptist. The man whose sacrifice paved the way for Jesus to save all mankind.”

Maria let those words wash over her. “I like that too,” she replied and kept the rosary in her hand. She turned to the door and, without looking back, stepped out into the hallway and began her mission.

In the privacy of the elevator that would take her to the hotel’s foyer, Maria tucked the rosary into her left bra strap. If she couldn’t wear it publicly, she would wear it as close to her heart as she could manage.

Her legs were jelly as she crossed the marble floor of the lobby and walked on unsteady feet out into the frigid Boston winter. The club was only a few yards away. Keeping her head held high, she played her part as best she could. Feigning confidence had been the greatest challenge so far. Maria was used to keeping her eyes to the ground, hands clasped in constant prayer. Her hands were not linked, but she could still find peace in her faith. Hail Mary, full of grace, Maria prayed silently in her mind as she approached the liquor store. She walked through the automatic doors and headed to the back room, praying she had the entrance right. A steep staircase awaited her on the other side. A large man stood at the bottom of it. Maria handed him her cards as he looked her up and down with a salacious smirk on his face. Handing back the cards, he opened the gate that allowed her to pass upstairs.

Maria heard the music from inside pulsing against the walls. She clutched her purse tightly. Maria had never been to a club before. Before she was taken by William Bridge she had been too young. When she was freed, she pledged herself to the church. Maria was sheltered in a way most twenty-one-year-olds were not. Normally, she was thankful. Right now, she wished she had some prior knowledge of what she was walking into.

Ignoring her shaking hand, Maria opened the door to the club and almost stumbled at the sight that greeted her. She froze on seeing a woman tied to a wooden stake in the center of the room, bound by leather straps and metal chains. She was naked but for a strip of black material in her mouth . . . and there was a man, dressed in a three-piece suit, flogging her with a thin leather strap. Even over the blasting music, Maria heard the strap lashing, marring the woman’s skin. There was even blood. But what disturbed Maria more was the look of ecstasy on her face.

Maria could barely breathe. There wasn’t a part of her that was functioning as it should. Her breathing and heartbeat were too quick. Her eyes were too wide and her mouth was dry in shock.

What was this place? Maria wanted to run.
