Release Blitz! Surrender By Amy Daws



One night of complete surrender is all it takes.

Gareth Harris is Manchester United’s reclusive star defender. He has control over all aspects of his life. But a lifetime of supporting his siblings and filling in for an emotionally absent father has taken its toll.

Sloan Montgomery is a clothing stylist whose world was turned upside down when she found herself pregnant and moving to Manchester with a man who was never supposed to be her forever. Now recently divorced and struggling with shared custody of her daughter, control is a fleeting concept for this American living in England.

Both Gareth and Sloan are in need of a release.

A moment in time where they can forget about their pasts and family pressures...and just...

…surrender.

No one could predict what happens when both of their defences are down.

Surrender is part one of The Final Harris Brother Duet and concludes with Dominate. The Final Harris Brother Duet reads great as a duo, but to maximize enjoyment, check out the first three brothers’ books in Challenge, Endurance, and Keeper. 
This is a hard review for me to type for a number of reasons but mainly because I have liked the previous books in this series and I like this author very much. I struggled with Surrender for a lot of various reasons, reasons I can’t say because I won’t be spoiling it but ones that let’s just say I have a personal knowledge about certain things that happen, and I wasn’t sold on how it was playing out.

I struggled to connect with Sloan throughout the book because I felt as if she wasn’t strong enough and that she needed to stand up for herself in certain situations and she needed to treat Gareth with more respect. That being said Gareth’s character I could connect with and the reasons why he is doing certain things. I honestly kept reading for Gareth alone. I loved getting the glimpses of his brother and their wives as well as his sister.


Now I didn’t hate the book, contrary to what you may be thinking with this review. I can’t go into a lot of depth because I could accidentally spoil it and I refuse to do that. I am vested enough to want to read the Dominate because I want to see how things are going to play out. I love Amy Daws books and while this one may not have been a goal, sorry had to get some sort of soccer I mean football reference in there someone, I am looking forward to Dominate.

About Marianne Morea

Who am I? Well, that's a good question. When most people think of romance suspense authors, the image of Kathleen Turner as Joan Wilder in 'Romancing the Stone' usually comes to mind. A lonely woman sitting in a bathrobe and fuzzy slippers, conjuring lovers and adventure in her imagination. In other words, one step away from being the neighborhood cat lady. If that description made you cringe, then you know how we writer's feel. Thankfully, for most of us that image is far from accurate. I have been married for 23 years, have three beautiful kids, two dogs and a cat. I am a 2nd degree black belt in traditional Japanese karate and as I've said, I love to travel and my romantic and spontaneous husband shares that passion with me, so my stories get plenty of inspiration! In the meantime I am also a founding member and previous President of The Paranormal Romance Guild, a not-for-profit organization for readers and authors of the genre. Of course, I’m still writing and when I’m not ‘bichok’ (butt in a chair hands on keyboard), I'm off with my hubby and our kids to exciting destinations. Cat lady? I don't think so.

Release Blitz! No One But Us By Elizabeth O'Roark



She's my little sister's best friend. And exactly who I should NOT be spending a summer with...

The last time I saw Elle, she was a child. A Harry Potter-obsessed 13-year-old with a penchant for fan fiction and following me around. Six years later she’s on my doorstep. The braces are gone. The “Team Gryffindor” t-shirt’s been replaced with a bikini the size of my index finger. And I can’t get her out of my head, no matter how hard I try.

Except she’s still the girl I’m not allowed to have, the center of a secret I hope she never learns.

Resisting what I feel for Elle Grayson is the only way to protect my family. But am I willing to break both our hearts in the process?


So I have a feeling that I am going to look like the bad guy with this review. I am really sitting on the fence about No One But Us, I really didn’t like it but I also didn’t hate it either. Apparently this is a revision of a previously published book and the title was changed as well as some changed had been made. I am not going to do a long drawn out review nit picking the things that didn’t work for me, I am just going to say, for me the storyline and characters fell flat and I don’t know if it is an it’s me situation not the book or if it is the book itself. I felt zero connection between Elle and James, and I believe if I had I would have enjoyed this more. As always form your own opinions as what didn’t work for me may work for you.

  “May I get you something to drink while you wait for the rest of your party?” the waiter asked. I would normally wait to see what the client did and follow his lead on alcohol. But tonight was not the norm. I rubbed at my stiff neck. “I’ll take a vodka cranberry, please.” I hoped it would help calm my nerves and release some of the tension in my jaw before I gave myself a full-blown headache. Taking out my phone, I started to scroll through emails to distract myself while waiting for my drink and dinner companion. My head whipped up at the sound of Gray’s voice behind me. “Sorry I’m late.” My heart unexpectedly fluttered, and I fought against the feeling of excitement. “Are you really? Because I get the sense you don’t have any manners after the way you interrupted me a million times today.” He completely ignored my attitude as he took the seat across from me. “Traffic is a bitch getting downtown at this time. Next time we’ll have dinner at my place.” “There won’t be a next time.” Gray’s mouth curved into a smug smile as he snagged my gaze. “Sure there will. There’ll be plenty of next times. And eventually you’ll stop pretending you don’t enjoy my company.” I hated that my body reacted to him. Right from the very start, we’d had a crazy chemistry between us that was difficult to dull. I sighed. “What are you doing, Gray? Why did you come to my firm?” He lifted the cloth napkin in front of him and laid it across his lap. “Isn’t that obvious? I need new legal representation.” “At my firm? And you’d prefer that representation come from an associate instead of my boss’s boss—the head of our securities division? Or even from Pittman, who would gladly hold your hand and provide you whatever legal advice you need from his fifty-plus years of experience?” “Loyalty is important to me. I want someone I can trust with my business.” “And you’ve decided that’s me? An associate with five years experience who just got off probation with the Bar Association for violating attorney-client privilege?” The waiter arrived with my drink. “Here you go, ma’am.” He turned to Gray. “May I get you something to drink? Or would you like to wait until the last of your party joins you this evening?” “It’s just the two of us. I’ll have a Macallan, neat, please.” “Coming right up.” The waiter walked around to the other side of the table and started to remove the third place setting. I put my hand out, stopping him. “We actually do have another party coming, so you can leave that.” “Very well.” He nodded. Gray waited until the waiter was out of earshot. “I didn’t invite anyone else to dinner.” I sipped my drink and offered a saccharine-sweet fake smile. “I did. Figured an important client like you should have more than one attorney to answer his questions.” Just as I set down my glass, I saw the other man I was waiting for enter the restaurant. He scanned the room, looking for me, so I held up my hand and waved. “Perfect timing. There’s Oliver now.” Gray glanced at the man heading toward us and back to me. Instead of being pissed off, the jerk was amused. “That’s cute. You invited a chaperone because you don’t trust yourself with me.”

We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of THE NAKED TRUTH.

Release Blitz! Knight By Giulia Lagomarsino


Knight is the fourth book in the Reed Security Series and should be read in order.

He’s no white Knight
Hudson McGuire- Ex-Marine and good friend of Hunter “Pappy” Papacosta.
Garrick Knight- Badass assassin on a crusade to rid the world of those he deems unworthy. Both men are lethal. Both men are obsessed with Kate Whittemore. Both men are the same man, but only one can convince Kate that he’s the man for her.
Knight
I was dishonorably discharged from the military after I killed my superiors. They were profiting off soldier’s deaths and I wouldn’t stand for it. They were righteous kills and I stand by what I did. I was sentenced to prison, but Pappy made sure I never saw the inside of a prison cell. Ever since then, I’ve been working as a gun for hire, taking on any job that rids the world of the scum of the earth. Then I met up with Pappy again and all my plans went to shit. I found myself working for the good guys once again and ended up in the hands of an angel.
Kate
I’m a doctor and I own my own practice in town. I never wanted to be a part of the crazy schedules of the hospital and wanted to have a personal connection with my patients. That started to change a little when my cousin, Cole called me to take care of a woman he found in the woods. Ever since then, I’ve become a sort of on-call doctor for his friend, Sebastian at Reed Security. Then, I got called in to take care of a gun shot victim that completely changed my world. I see him watching me from afar. He thinks I don’t know he’s there, but I can feel his eyes on me all the time. I know he’s not a good man, but I can’t help but want to know more about him.




The hairs on the back of my neck stood up and I stiffened. He was here. I stood and looked around the room, but I didn’t see anything. Walking over to the window, I looked out into the dark, hoping that I could see something. I would rather know exactly where he was than wonder the whole night if he was going to come for me.
Hot air trickled across the back of my neck. My breath hitched as I felt a hand brush against the nape of my neck as my hair was shifted over my shoulder.
“You should be more careful when you’re leaving work.”
His voice washed over me in that rough, deep tone that sent shivers down my spine.
“Why did you do that?” I asked, my heart beating out of control.
“He was hurting you.”
“I was running away. I would have gotten away.”
His hand brushed down my arm and then back up to rest on my shoulder. “He might have come back another night. A man like that, someone who would attack a woman just to get a fix, he doesn’t deserve to live.”
“That’s not your decision to make,” I said shakily.
“I made it my decision the moment he put his hands on you, and I’d do it again.”
I spun around and faced the man that I had last seen just a week ago. “I don’t need anyone killing to protect me. I heal people and that man could have been helped.”
“That man was scum and if he went after you, he would go after someone else. He didn’t deserve to live.”
“Like you?”
He took a step back and his jaw tightened. “I repaid my debt. You won’t see me again.”
“I didn’t want to see you again to begin with.”
He backed out of my room and was gone. I had no idea how he got in or how he left. He moved so silently that I didn’t hear even my noisy stairs creak. Even though the man had just killed someone in front of me, I couldn’t help but still want to see him again, no matter what I said. He intrigued me and terrified me all at the same time. I turned back to the window and stared out into the night, wondering if I would see him again.






  



I'm a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, "No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book." I didn't think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn't already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven't been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
