THE KINGMAKER BY KENNEDY RYAN

Power. Passion. Betrayal.

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition. In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.

My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and would do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.

And neither will I.

BLACKBIRDS NOVEL DUET

ETHAN’S CHOICE: BLANK PAGES I BY LILY JAVA

Stand-Alone: yes
Series: Blackbirds, Book 1
Publisher: Hot Java Press
Publication Date: October 18, 2019
Genre: Contemporary Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Literary, Family Saga
Heat Level: Sensual


BLACKBIRDS NOVEL DUET

When Elliott Vance sees his parents, Serena and Ethan, together for the first time, holding hands; it causes a tectonic shift in his perception of reality. Answering all the questions that bubble to the surface, will not always be easy or pleasant. But, there’s always a beginning, a middle, and an end to most stories, including Serena and Ethan’s.

The reconnection between Serena and Ethan Vance will lead to explosive revelations and a thousand and one questions about their past. But will it also give them and their only son Elliott, the closure they all so desperately need?

‘Ethan’s Choice: Blank Pages I’ and ‘Serena’s Vow: Blank Pages II’ by Lily Java brings full circle the story of Elliott Vance’s parents, Serena and Ethan, first introduced in the novel ‘Blackbirds’.

L.V. ‘s Review of Ethan’s Choice

Lily Java amazes me, first of all, as an author, because she’s done something spectacular in writing a duet of more than six hundred pages! Secondly, this first story, Ethan’s Choice, itself is a tour de force. Java writes about Ethan and Serena, their meeting, their falling in love, and the baggage they each bring into a relationship juxtaposed against a backdrop of the Bronx in the 1970’s and 1980’s . Her words draw the reader into the boroughs of NYC as if you lived and breathed in the “city that never sleeps.”

As you get to know Ethan and Serena, you also meet everyone else who played a part in their lives, particularly Ethan’s as Java expertly peeled back layer after layer of the nuances that made Ethan the man he was and what ultimately led him to make the choice he made. I confess, I read Ethan’s choice with a bit of low-key jealousy, because I kept thinking how I want to be as adept with stringing together my words and phrases as Ms. Java is. One particular scene that I practically salivated over was the one where there’s a deliberate POV shift involving Ian, the red-head and his run-in with an avenging angel, if you will. That was brilliant!

I found Ethan’s Choice to be rich in description that doesn’t succumb to purple prose, which paints a vivid picture of the story of Ethan’s turbulent life and Serena’s seemingly charmed one. The fraught relationship that Ethan has with both his father and his uncle make for a riveting read, placing the reader right in the middle of the actions that made Ethan the man he became, despite resisting his arrival there literally “kicking against the pricks.”

If you want to read a story that goes so much further than the surface of a relationship, one that carries you all the way back to its origins, that will have you rooting harder for these fictitious characters than you’ve ever done in your life, you must read, Ethan’s Choice.

ETHAN’S CHOICE: BLANK PAGES I BY LILY JAVA

He thought he planned for everything. But, what he didn’t plan for, was her.

Whether we are we born into the world a blank page has been argued since the time of Aristotle. Is it nature or nurture that makes us who we are? Do we choose our own fate, or are we chosen for the roles we play?

Serena Clay is a golden girl living in a soulful, turbulent time. Beautiful, intelligent, pragmatic, and so well cared for, one would think she’d be better prepared. But there’s no way, she could’ve known how overwhelming and passionate it would be to fall in love, until she met Ethan Vance—a fierce, charming, and enigmatic young man.

Ethan Vance lives a life filled with secrets and lies. He longs to be free of them as well as of the violent family legacy they stem from. With careful planning and avoidance, he hopes to keep the woman he dares to love and the person most precious to him, in his life forever. When things go bad as they often do, Ethan has a choice to make but now his heart won’t be the only one on the line.

Genre: Contemporary Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Literary, Family Saga
Heat Level: Sensual


Keeping her promises has often meant sacrifice. But is it ever too late to try and live your best dreams?

Sometimes, re-imagining your life is your only road to salvation.

Long ago left by the man she loved and trusted, with a young son to raise alone, Serena Vance is now a grown woman. The vows she and Ethan made to each other, she has had to forget. Now there is nothing more important than helping her son become the best man he can be. But will reaching that goal come at the expense of her own happiness?

Ethan Vance is a lost, broken man—angry, alone, and teetering on the brink of disaster. The people and things that meant the most to him are disappearing from his life one by one. Every day has become a nightmare, and to survive he must turn his life around.

But is it ever too late to have a second chance at living your best dreams?

In the winding journey these two former lovers take further away from each other, they both lose a significant part of themselves. To thrive again, they must re-invent their lives apart … and maybe, in doing so they will find their way back together.

ETHAN’S CHOICE – EXCERPT

Serena was lying in his bed, reading. They’d made love late that afternoon. He’d elevated the hurt wrist and told her not to move it, no matter what he did. She was obedient, though he did not make it at all easy for her. As she writhed against his treacherous mouth, tongue, and hands, he kept her in endless pursuit of an orgasm until she could barely move from the effort. The sun set over their warm, conjoined bodies. 

He never seemed to have enough time with her to his liking. And now here she was— lying in hisbed, in hisshirt—and he still felt that way. He’d been studiously watching her while pretending to work on something else. It wasn’t just that she was beautiful. It was her earthiness—how full of grace she was. It made him feel like having her in his life was the only thing he needed to be sure he’d stay safe, grounded, and in touch with everything around him. That as long as she was there, as long as he could look at her every day, he wouldn’t lose himself to the dour or murky thoughts he sometimes had about his life—about the world in general. 

She reached the end of a page and adjusted herself while turning it when she noticed he was staring. 

Everything he’d been thinking, everything he’d been planning, Ethan blurted it all out at once. 

“There’s something I want to tell you. I’ve made a decision. I’m going to leave school after this semester.”

Her brow creased ever so slightly. He got the impression she was holding her breath a little. Stabilizing herself against the conversation, she took a deep breath, and then another, before she spoke. 

“Where will you go?”

“I’m thinking about going to the country for a little while.”

“The country? What do you mean?”

“I mean I’m thinking about renting that house we stayed in but for a longer time than just a weekend.” 

Serena sat up in the bed, pushing the book aside.  

“In Claverack?”

“Yeah.”

“Why there?”

“Good memories.”

He knew her downcast eyes and the subtle smile meant she was remembering too.

Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 3 Recap

Last night’s episode of Game of Thrones literally slayed me. Going in I was concerned that many of our beleaugered characters would join the Army of the Dead, and while some did, surprisingly most of our favorites remained unscathed for now. 

The Battle at Winterfell began with the Dothraki Screamers leading the charge against the Night King’s Army of the Dead after receiving the gift of fire for their swords from Melisandre who appeared out of the mist just before the battle began. Sadly, a couple thousand Dothraki are no match for one hundred thousand wights, so unfortunately, these brave warriors were dispensed of very quickly. Only a few Dothraki, their horses, and Ser Jorah emerged from that early skirmish.

This unfortunately showed our heroes that they truly had their work cut out for them with this army, because they were literally outnumbered several times over. Preparation and luck would be key to winning this battle.

The Night King’s use of mist and/or weather manipulation rendered the dragons almost useless, but they managed to beat the Army back a few times with dragon fire, but sheer numbers made it impossible for them to be everywhere they needed to be during the battle. 

Melisandre’s magic proved to be an immense help to Jon and Danerys’s battle on a couple of occasions, particularly when the trenches needed to be lit and  neither Jon and Dany nor the dragons were able to see clearly enough to do so.This kept the Army at bay for a while so the warriors could get their second wind. However, the Night King sacrificed some of his army to smother the fire in strategic places in the trenches so that the majority of his army could cross the trench and make their way to Winterfell’s castle walls. This proved an effective strategy for the Night King’s Army because once they were through, their sheer numbers allowed them to scale the walls handily.

Meanwhile, Arya, who proved to be a very effective little fighting machine courtesy of her training as a Faceless Man, was able to put away quite a few of the wights, but once the Castle became overrun with them, it became an insane battle for all our heroes. While most of them continued to battle it out in the courtyard, Arya, The Hound (Sandor Clegane), and Beric Dondarion battled wights that had infiltrated the castle itself.

As the fighting continued, Winterfell’s army lost the following: little Lady Lyanna Mormont, who took on a giant despite being crushed by it, she was able to stab it in the eye with dragonglass before she took her dying breath; Edd Tollett aka Dolorous Edd, who Jon left in charge as the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch after he was stabbed and killed by his brethren; Lord Beric Dondarian died valiantly serving the purpose for which the Lord of Light allowed him to be revived from the dead six times to fulffill; Ser Jorah Mormont fell as he was protecting his Queen whom he loved as he and Danerys were surrounded by wights after Drogon took flight without Dany to rid himself from being overrun by wights; Theon Greyjoy and the Ironborn who volunteered to wait with Bran in the Godswood to protect him from the Night King were overcome though they all fought heroically.

The women, children, elderly, infirmed and non-fighting men who were in the Crypts did not get slaughtered as many predicted, although the Night King did raise the dead from the Stark crypts. Our favorites among this group were able to elude the newly raised wights in the Crypt until the end.

Surprisingly, it is Arya who gets the honor of killing the NIght King and winning the war for Winterfell. Her training as a Faceless Man allowed her to sneak up on the Night King and stab him with her Valerian Steel knife, which she was gifted by Bran last season. This began a chain reaction that took out all the White Walkers, Viserion, and all the Wights.

Once Melisandre saw that the battle was won, she calmly walked out of Winterfell, removed her magic amulet and died quietly in the snow under the watchful eye of Ser Davos Seaworth who was going to execute her to avenge Princess Shireen Baratheon if Melisandre had not committed suicide.

There are only three episodes left now, and there is no rest for the weary. Our heroes will now have to turn their sights to King’s Landing where Cersai is still languishing on the iron throne waiting for the army numbers at Winterfell to dwindle so her twenty thousand golden company army and the lannister soldiers will try to defend the capital against what’s left of Jon and Danerys’s army and her dragons. As before, I won’t hazard to guess who dies and in what order,. Last week, the only person I predicted who died was Theon Greyjoy.

I’m wondering now that Ser Jaime Lannister has survived, who will he fight for in the next battle? Although he affirmed that Cersei is truly pregnant, he must know that she won’t be forgiving him anytime soon for abandoning her, and in fact she has a price on his and Tyrion’s head–their executioner to be is none other than Ser Bronn of the Blackwater, a sellsword whom they have both hired in the past to do their dirty work. 

Well, my Rock Star Legend Series isn’t as brutal as Game of Thrones, but it does feature three books, Savage, Redemption, and Revival. For those who read the series previously, books 1 and 2 share Brody and Skylar’s story, and the upcoming book 3 shares Alyssa and Dylan’s story. I’ve been having so much fun writing the story for this new couple in The Rock Star Legend Series and I hope you will enjoy reading about all of them as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.

Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 2 Recap

This recent episode set up some very interesting dynamics. As I predicted, Jaime Lannister was allowed to fight with the North. Bran didn’t out him, so he’s good for now. This doesn’t mean he’s safe from death, though. Not only will he be fighting the Night King’s Army of the dead with his weak arm, but Cersei has a price on his head. Brienne vouches for Jaime,and Sansa vouches for Brienne,

Arya seeks Gendry out in the forge where she shows him she’s not the little girl he traveled with after their escape from Harrenhaal. Jaime finally makes an apology to Bran for pushing him out of the tower window all those years ago, but Bran being so other right now only cares that Jaime is another fighter to aid in the battle at Winterfell.

Sansa made it known to Danerys that if she’s going to rule in Westeros, the North does not want to be under her rule. Ser Davos feeds the troops while GIlly gathers the elderly, infirmed, women and children to wait out the battle in the Crypt. As Greyworm and Missandei make plans to go back to her home of Naath when the war is over, because they don’t feel particularly welcome in the North (do you blame them?).

As a plan is devised to defeat the Night King using Bran (who has his mark) a bait, Danerys wonders why Jon has been avoiding her after their dragon ride. Meanwhile, Jaime and Brienne’s fireside reunion is crashed by Tormund who gets into a bit of pissing contest with Jaime, and shares how he got his name Giantsbane. But Jaime wins the contests hands-down when he Knights Brienne. Of course he’d already sworn to fight with her in the batttle, because he has a connection with her and probably feels more comfortable fighting for a friend who’d have his back and not a foe (because all of the North as his foes, right?).

Arya chats with the hound and Beric Dondarion for a while, but finds them a rather morbid pair, so she goes off to find Gendry, who was her childhood crush. He tells her of his parentage, but she has other things in mind. She allows him to divest her of her pesky virginity before the battle with the NIght King ensues.

Ser Jorah is given the gift of a Valyrian sword by Samwell Tarly, so Ser Jorah might be okay coming out of this battle, unless he dies saving his cousin Lyanna Mormont who is adamant about fighting alongside the men. Sam will have dragonglass to fight with, just as he did once before when he was confronted by white walkers, but as Sam and Gilly are both so beloved, one of them will likely not come out of this battle alive (most likely Sam since he’ll be out on the front lines, and Gilly will be int he Crypt).

Jon/ being the most like Ned Stark is so honorable he just had to tell Danerys what he knew, and it was probably unavoidable, because she realized he’d been avoiding her. I think Jon was premature in telling Danerys the truth, though. He should have waited until after the battle at Winterfell, maybe even after taking care of Cersei, but I think this news will definitely cause a rift between them.

There are only four episodes left, so things are going to move pretty fast for our heroes and heroines in Westeros from now on. While I originally thought they might not defeat the Night King in their first go, I believe they just might do so now with many casualties and losses of characters we won’t want to see go. I won’t hazard to guess who dies and in what order, but newly Knighted Ser Brianne of Tarth seems likely, as well as Theon Greyjoy, Tormund Giantsbane (who will probably have to take down the undead Giant), Varys (and him only because Melisandre predicted his death previously).

Well, my Rock Star Legend Series isn’t as brutal as Game of Thrones, but it does feature three books, Savage, Redemption, and Revival. For those who read the series previously, books 1 and 2 share Brody and Skylar’s story, and the upcoming book 3 shares Alyssa and Dylan’s story. I’ve been having so much fun writing the story for this new couple in The Rock Star Legend Series and I hope you will enjoy reading about all of them as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.

Fake It
by Alexis Winter

What would YOU do for fifty thousand dollars?

Turns out when you’re staring down the barrel of bankruptcy and possible eviction…you’ll do pretty much anything for some quick cash.

Even if that means pretending to be the fiancée to Mr. Sex-on-a-stick himself, Cameron Styles. 

Chicago’s most successful, ruthless lawyer and douchebag extraordinaire.

I gave myself two rules.
#1. Don’t fall into his bed.
#2. Don’t fall in love.

There’s one small problem…I’m REALLY bad at following my own rules. 

Just when I think there’s a glimmer of hope he feels the same way,
I’m reminded of my place in his life…

Does true love stand a chance when I was hired to fake it?

What will we do?

Happy Belated Birthday to me (Yesterday, April 8th was my birthday)! So, Readers, my newsletter subscription only allows me to send a certain number of newsletters out per month. Somehow I had been exceeding that until recently, and unfortunately I had no funds to increase the subscription at this time. My apologies for sending last week’s newsletter late. 🙁


This week, the revamp of the European Tour Series, Savage, made it’s debut on my Birthday! I’ve been working with a marketer who is helping me to re-launch and re-release these Rock Star Romances.

The new series title is The Rock Star Legend Series, and it features three books, Savage, Redemption, and Revival. For those who read the series previously, books 1 and 2 share Brody and Skylar’s story, and the upcoming book 3 shares Alyssa and Dylan’s story. I’ve been having so much fun writing the story for this new couple in The Rock Star Legend Series and I hope you will enjoy reading about all of them as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.

Speaking of writing, If you want to read any of my books while you’re waiting on my new stuff to publish, you can find all my books here, where Savage is $0.99 or FREE for KU Subscribers for a limited time: LV Lewis books!

This weekend I was inflicted with the flu. Can’t a girl get a break? If you’ve been following my blog, then you know I’ve had sickness after sickness and now I’m just so done with not being well.

Despite everything, I have all this writing I need to do and deadlines I want to be able to meet, but I am not a super hero. I had to come to this realization as it relates to my day job and my side hustle. I can only do so much, until my body collapses.

So, this week, I’m going to try to take it easy and allow my body to heal. I’ve got my meds and my fluids and trying very hard not to become dehydrated, so wish me luck you guys. I’m going to need it.

If you want to read any of my books while you’re waiting on me to get well, and my new stuff to publish, you can find all my books here, where Fifty Shades of Jungle Fever is still FREE: LV Lewis books!

Love, Autumn by Nikki Bloom

Someone call Karma because she seriously sucks at her job. 
Leo Thompson was an absolute jerk in college and now he’s Mr. Tall and Handsome? 
What’s up with that? 
And, get this, he’s this super successful surgeon who managed to steal away my heart. 
Seriously, Karma, get your act together. 

But I guess I don’t mind all that much if he keeps giving me those bedroom eyes. 
Try as I might to remember the ridicule he’d put me through… 
The humiliation… 
I’m still drawn to that perfect smile of his… 
That oh-so-sexy V that leads to untold pleasures. 

Oh, if I could only forget about the past and fall into bed with this man. 
If only for a little while. 
I mean, if Karma doesn’t hold a grudge then why should I? 
A girl can have a little bit of fun, can’t she? 

Especially when that fun is Dr. Leo Thompson. 
The one man who can make me howl louder than any other. 
The one who knows my every weakness – my every bedtime kryptonite. 
And he uses it to his full advantage until I’m screaming so loud the whole town is bound to hear his name. 

So, someone page Dr. Thompson because I’ve got a bone to pick. 
Or better yet, he has a bone to pick with me. 
If you know what I mean. 
Let’s just hope that this doesn’t crash and burn like the last time. 
Because my heart cannot stand to be shattered a second time. 

Love, Autumn is a 40k-word sweet/heat-packed romance novella with no cheating and a HEA. Click BUY NOW to find out what happens when Autumn meets Dr. Handsome again!

Born of Sin (Book 1) by Deanna Richmond

FREE

The future can’t hold back the past.

Octavia Vail has no memory of her life before being found on a barren Connecticut road as a young child. The locals were shocked that she only spoke Latin and suspicious of the dead greenery and livestock that appeared in the wake of her arrival. Her only possession, a mysterious ring, may have something to do with it. And when the ring’s crest matches the one on a ring in a picture worn by a man who lived centuries ago, Octavia knows she must find out more about him. 

Victor Logan Marchette, a vampire who’s lived for over 600 years, is the CEO of a Philadelphia hospital that deals with blood diseases. The first 200 years of his life are a mystery to him, but he’ll soon find out the horrifying reason why. Meanwhile, Octavia begins work as a nurse in the same hospital, and the sparks with Victor begin to fly…

But Victor is betrothed to another, a vampire from a wild clan, under the orders of the vampires’ governing body, Cabalistis. And when vampires in both clans discover Octavia’s presence – and the hidden danger she represents — it’s all-out war.

Born of Sin is the first in a thrilling Gothic Romance series. In a world of darkness and strife, the light of love is all that stands against it. And even for the most hardened vampires, that light… is the true meaning of eternity.

*A re-release of Blood Thirst, An Eternal Romance, and a sneak peek of Book 2.

KISSING THE PROTECTOR
by JILLIAN RILEY

“One of them gets 24 Hour Protection and the other gets heated nights at the ranch” 

Carlos:
I certainly didn’t want to waste my time babysitting a wannabe actress. 

Especially, when in order to do my job well I would need to run everything by her stuck-up, pain in the ass cousin. 

But there was something about her cousin that struck a nerve with me.

She seemed so smart and extremely sexy.

What was the price I was going to pay for taking on the role of Falls Ranch Protector…

Sam
I hated working for my cousin. I loved her sure, but I had an education, more than one degree, and at almost thirty I should be using them for something more.

But when family needs you, your wants and dreams take the back burner.

I didn’t mean to want my sexy protector, but every time he came near me something inside me flared.

He was too much. Too handsome, too intelligent, too strong, and too stubborn.

I would go to Falls Ranch. I would play the part Chandra needed me to play, but when this job was over, that’s when I would leave it all behind. Start my real career, and my real life.

The only problem? Would I be able to walk away with my heart intact?

For the past six weeks I’ve been dealing with skin irritation. If you have eczema or one of those common skin conditions, then you know exactly what I’ve been up against. My primary care physician wasn’t able to help me this time, so I’ve been referred to a dermatologist who told me this morning that I would need to have another outbreak for them to “culture” the problem to determine what it is so they can help me. This is unfortunate because now I have to go through this dreaded irritation for the 5th time in order for them to give me some permanent relief.

This seems very counterintuitive, because it means I’m going to have to let myself be sick again in order for them to try to heal me. I wish medicine was more an exact science in this case than a “let’s troubleshoot this and see what we’ve got in our arsenal to cure what ails you.”

Despite my misery, I’m still going to write a good portion of this we. What are you doing this third week of February?

TOff Limits by Allie Hayden


The road to love can be a dangerous journey when you’ve got two eligible bachelors fighting for your attention.

Sebastian, my mid-summer childhood muse, now a renowned lawyer, stared me down with his piercing blue eyes.
He wanted me again, I could tell. By the smirk on his face and the way he undressed me with his eyes.
“Is it hot in here? Or is it just me?” I fanned myself, trying to get the flush on my face to ease. 
“Should be illegal to be that hot,” Sebastian purred, sending my skin into a goose bumped frenzy.

And then there was Ash, you know him– the lead singer of Dreams of Compass Gods.
Drop dead gorgeous and talent like no other. 
And the cherry? Well, that was me. 
“It’s most definitely you, princess.” Ash winked.
You’d think he’d want nothing to do with a normal girl like me. 

Three’s a crowd? I was crowded-in a hot and bothered way.
What am I supposed to do when these two beautiful men want me. 
Whoever said the most evil boys were the prettiest, were so god dammed right. 

Sometimes, you just can’t say no.

Loving The Billionaire Boss by Kristen Kara

She’s never forgotten her first love.
A scholarship to an elite college was supposed to be Olivia Davidson’s ticket to success—one she never had a chance to cash. But she’s found her own path, first through the military, now as an entrepreneur. She can attend her class’s fifteen-year anniversary with her head high. Because there’s one person with whom she has unfinished business…

When I kissed a gorgeous stranger in a red-mask
I had no idea he will be my future boss…

He is the God of one night stands!
The Sexy Irresistible Billionaire.

That’s how I can describe Josh Kirk.
He will stop your heart with a glance.
That gorgeous little douchebag!

Wait.

That’s not entire him.
He has a more elusive side.
Which the world doesn’t know.
Only I do.

Yes, I am insane.
Why is he my boss?

Why would I even care that much for this AH?
Maybe because I am lonely – with an obvious hole in my heart.
Never did I want my boss to bang me.
Or maybe, I do!

100% HEA

Large. Huge. Magnum.
I get called these names all the time.
I’ve dominated the field for years.
But the moment I saw Reesa, I knew I wanted her.
Her curves, her eyes, and that sweet voice.
She is tempting me to the next level and I might lose control.
But she has a secret and I have to know what it is.
She is mine no matter what.
I’ll protect her at all costs.

Book 2 – Addiction
They call me beast for a reason.
I win, I score, I lead on and off the field.
But when I saw Kylie, I knew she was mine.
Those sweet juicy lips and her perfect curves.
There’s something about her that makes me go wild.
I have a secret to keep but there’s no way I can resist her.
I’ll tease her, tempt her and get her addicted to me.

Book 3 – Passion
I’m a monster, a predator on and off the pitch.
Nobody can tame me.

But when I laid eyes on Krys, I knew I wanted her.
More than just a hookup.
One dance with her and I was hooked.
Her hips, soft curves, full lips sparked a fire in me.
And now, nothing can stop me from claiming her.
My passion for her is a flame that only she can put out.
