**COVER REVEAL** The Ex Effect by Karla Sorensen

Title: The Ex Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 5, 2018
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
The headline could write itself:
Matthew Hawkins, star defensive end, comes out of retirement to play for the Washington Wolves. 
Which is perfectly fine by Ava Baker—it makes her job as publicist for the team easier. 
There’s only two problems. This particular football player was her first crush. 
The bigger problem: Matthew Hawkins was once engaged to her older sister. 
It’s been ten years since Ava has seen Matthew. He’s bigger, better looking, and best of all—completely single. Despite his history with her sister, the attraction between Ava and Matthew isn’t so one-sided anymore. 
It’s hot enough to burn down the entire city of Seattle. 
But this headline is far more complicated to write. And not just for the press or what it means for her family— because once her heart is involved, there’s no predicting the ending.
Well, let’s see ... I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone's face, then I've done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.

Justin 
I originally joined the Navy as an escape, to become more than a country farm boy. Being a Navy SEAL turned me into a man, but one without a life outside the military. I thought that was all I needed. Until everyone around began to find their Happily Ever Afters’. I realized my life was missing love, something I've been longing for. All it took was one simple letter from home to remind me that everything I ever needed was right there waiting for me. 

Becca 
Losing the love of your life before he was able to meet his child was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through. I tried to move on with my life, and find a new sense of normalcy with my daughter and myself. One simple holiday act of kindness has set my carefully choreographed life into a tailspin. I could never have guessed writing a simple letter to a deployed sailor would bring us to a place we can finally call ‘Home’ again. 

Can these two trust in the things they can not see to find true happiness?

**While Faith can be read as a standalone, it is best enjoyed after reading Honor, Love, Fate, and Power.**

Andi Jaxon

Raised all over the USA, Andi Jaxon is an interesting mix of East Coast meets West Coast with a little bit of Southern thrown in, just for good measure. She drinks too much coffee until it's late enough to drink too much wine and while her husband is defending his country, Andi is sexually frustrated for your freedom. If you see Andi online, she is probably sitting in a closet, hiding from her kids.




AJ Alexander

Fluent in sarcasm, Supernatural, and song lyrics, AJ Alexander likes talking to people and finding what makes them tick, though that probably has more to do with her Psychology degree. Being married to a man in uniform means she has lived in a lot of places, survived seeing her husband for half the amount of time I’ve been married, and spent a lot of time raising her kids alone. AJ loves to write messed up psychos with lots of angst and happily ever afters that have to be worked for. Women with sass and backbone, men with a twisted hero complex and the need to control are her favorite to read as well as write.

Excerpt

I park my bike in front of a brownstone where Ronin told me Luka, the guy who supplies guns, lives. Ronin asked me to pay attention to how Luka acted. He wants my opinion due to a rumor going around about a large gun shipment bound to end up in the wrong hands.

The whispers are it involves a new Mexican gang trying to get foot on the ground here in town. Something about a large gang with two leaders falling apart and they need to start over. They’re trying to obtain a supply of weapons so they can deal with anyone who will interfere. Ronin suspects Luka might know more, seeing this guy handles most of the gun deals in this town.

Anyway, I need to report back my thoughts and findings. Ronin also said there was a chance Luka was out of town and that I had to deal with either Joey or Billie. Then I should find out anything there was to know no matter who I got to deal with.

Taking the stairs to the front door two at a time, I straighten my leather cut before ringing the doorbell. Curses ring out from inside the house, loud enough for me to hear through the closed door. When it opens, a tiny woman is standing there with rose gold, wavy hair that flows just over her shoulders. She’s straightening a jacket she seems to have just thrown on and wipes away some of the hair that has fallen in front of her face.

It’s then I notice something that definitely puts me on high alert, besides this lush hotness standing in front of me. I don’t get a chance to throw a remark her way because she steps back and offers me a way inside as she mutters, “You’re early.”

I step inside and close the door behind me. I slide a hand to my back in an effort to pretend I have a fucking gun there. Hell of a moment not to have one since this woman’s got blood spatter in her damn hair and some on her face. I don’t know what the hell is going on but she’s pretending all is dandy, even mentions I’m early, and I have no fucking clue who the hell she is. I was told to expect either Luka, Joey, or Billie.

This woman, with the sexiest ass in all of female existence, has no fear. Why? She’s got her fucking back to me and prances into the living room expecting me to follow. As if I’m not the six-foot-tall, two-hundred-and-sixty pound biker she innocently scooted into the house.

Title: What About Us
Series: Panic #4
Author: Sidney Halston
Publisher: Loveswept
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 20, 2018



Blurb

Irresistible beats and tantalizing bodies heat up the night at South Beach’s most scandalous new club.

Alex: I hate doing business in clubs. Especially one like Duality. I’m here to seal a deal, not indulge in whatever hedonistic illusion they’re selling. Until, through all the skin and sex on display, I see her. Helen Blackwood. The girl who once filled my youthful fantasies, whose name is now synonymous with pain. Her father’s lies destroyed my family, leaving me with nothing to lose. And yet I can’t deny my electric response to her touch . . . or my urge to protect her when I see the bruise on her face.

Helen: Growing up, life prepared me for society galas and powerful men, not minimum-wage jobs or drunk exes with anger issues. But I’m a survivor. So here I am, practically naked, serving drinks at a Miami nightclub. I don’t mind the stares. Apparently, Alex Archer does. After twelve years, we aren’t exactly friends, but money is something we both understand. Something he knows I need. I’ll be his personal assistant, even if it means working with the man I hate . . . and the man I still want.

KENNEDY

I was paying off a debt.
One that wasn’t mine.
But when your father screws over an outlaw motorcycle club and then disappears with their money, you have two choices.
Pay with your body, or pay with your blood.
With a little sister to protect, I did what I had to.
I gave them me.

REPO

I was born a protector.
Whatever it took, I did it.
My family, my brothers and the club’s name—I made sure that anyone who crossed us, or at least anyone who tried, learned quickly why they shouldn’t.
Seeing her sitting at the bar, I was drawn to her. Her scars, her bruises, and the light around her.
Without knowing me, she instantly had my back.
So it was only fair I had hers.

She walked in with the enemy.
But there was no way in hell I was letting her walk out with them.

Excerpt

“Beautiful, isn’t it?” He presses his front against my back, eliminating the space between us. My heart races as I feel his erection through his suit pants.
I shiver. “Will you hurt me in here, Sir?”
“Of course.”
“Will you make me cry?”
“I usually do.”
I steel my jaw, because the way he talks about my pain, my torment, is just cruel. “Then what are you waiting for?”
“An audience,” he whispers, his tongue darting out to lick the space where my shoulder meets my neck. I close my eyes, bring my arm up behind his head, and slide my fingers into his hair as he devours my flesh. My body is electric, on fire, and buzzing with need. His words terrify me, and yet I’ve never been more turned on.

**RELEASE BLITZ** Too Good Girl by Eleanor Lloyd-Jones

Title: Too Good Girl
Author: Eleanor Lloyd-Jones
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 14, 2018
Cover Credits: Schmidt's Author Services
Syra Johnson was thirteen when she died inside. 
She was sixteen when she ran away from home and not much older when Jack Palmer saved her for the first time. 
Coping with her grief by shutting down, she became reckless with her life, keeping everyone at arm’s length, including Jack. 
Now, she’s nineteen, and her need to feel anything other than despair is as exhausting as it ever was. 
Jack Palmer lives a lonely life, working at night in the streets of the seaside town where they both live. The only thing that keeps his heart beating loud enough is Syra Johnson: his friend and the girl he wishes he could love. 
However, his attempts to keep her from falling further get thrown back in his face, breaking him a little more each time. 
Will the darkness that snatched her away drag her deeper than before, or will Syra let Jack save her again and open herself to becoming whole?
I jumped down and yanked him with me. “I want to paddle. Come on.” Setting off at a light jog, I reached the water’s edge in no time, slipping back out of my shoes and dropping them to the sand next to my bag and my jacket. I bent down and rolled the bottoms of my skinny jeans up as far as they would go and turned around, grinning and slightly out of breath, to make sure Jack was following suit.
He wasn’t.
He was standing there, watching me.
My breath caught in my throat as I looked in his eyes that sparkled in the moonlight, and my chest heaved as I swallowed down, no idea what was going on. “What?”
He shook his head. “Nothing.”
“Well why are you staring at me?”
“Because you look happy. It’s good to see you smiling.”
I swallowed again before rolling my eyes to cover my embarrassment and the feeling of blood rushing in my ears. “Come on.”
Turning back around, I took my first tentative steps into the freezing cold water, my heart pounding in my chest and an unknown feeling in my stomach.
Eleanor Lloyd-Jones is and always has been a perpetual daydreamer. A mum of one and a full-time primary school teacher, she spins plates and chases her tail in order that she can live out the dream she has had since being a little girl: to write stories. 
Like all indie authors, her ambition is to hit the big time, make all the lists and have some hot-shot movie producer pick up one of her books and turn it into the next blockbuster. Until that happens, she is content to type away, bringing her imagination to life, and just hopes that the people who read her words get some sort of enjoyment out of them and love her characters as much as she does.
