BLOG TOUR ~ LOCKE by Harper Sloan!

Darkness is the only thing I see. Ever since the day my life changed. The day that everything and everyone I held close to me ceased to exist. The day I lost it all and the demons of my past consumed my every waking moment. 

I tried to keep others at arm’s length. Tried not to let my darkness taint them. Ruin them. Harm them. And whether I want to admit it or not, as much as I wish I could keep them locked out, they refuse to leave. Refuse to let me suffer alone. 

If I hadn’t been so focused on keeping those demons from flying free, I wouldn’t have missed how one perfect angel was able to sneak her way under my skin—refusing to let go. Making me want things I don’t deserve. 

She consumes me. Her beauty knows no end. The love she promises tempts me every time she’s near. But that pure heart that makes her MY Emmy is the one thing I’m convinced I’ll destroy if I ever let her close. 

I’m a broken man. A broken man with too much darkness in his soul to ever let her light shine upon me. But even that doesn’t stop me from craving her with every single breath in my body.

I was a little nervous for this book, we’ve seen Maddox silently & stoically be there for his friends partners, playing their surrogate boyfriend when their own men were going through their useless stage, there were lots of hints that he had demons and those demons still controlled him. But I wasn’t sure that Harper could pull it out of the bag and that Maddox could live up to the hype that seems to surround him. Well I take that back and bow to her greatness, Maddox was freaking AWESOME!

I think we’d all guessed that he’d had bad even horrific experiences whilst serving his country but his pain goes deeper than that, he lost a lot to war both figuratively and quite literally. He had issues to deal with before he left for the last tour he did, the tour that changed his life irrevocably and also brought him into the fold that is Corps Security.

Emersyn also had a past that I was not expecting and it also explained her connection to Cooper and why she was so broken by his death and particularly him dying to protect her, she too has the most awful demons and I loved how ballsy she was, how much she’d overcome and was still willing to put her heart on the line over and over again.

Together Maddox & Emersyn are electric, they just set fire to the pages, when they connect boy do they connect but as ever the path of true love never runs smooth and Maddox messes up, blinded by misguided intentions & beliefs. Emersyn just loves, simple as that, she excepts Maddox, every insecure, messed up part him, both body & soul, she sees what others have only ever had a hint of, it’s ugly, it’s cruel but it’s real and if Maddox and Emersyn are nothing else they’re as real as can be!

This book is all about discoveries, healing, trust & a couple who have always meant to be together finding their way together & mending their broken souls.

Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husbands chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.

RELEASE BLITZ ~ Resisting Temptation by K.C. Lynn!

Here it is. The most anticipated book of the Men Of Honor Series, the one you have all been waiting for: Cade and Faith’s story. Resisting Temptation is Book Three in the Men Of Honor Series. 
It is an HEA with no cliffhanger. 

Faith ~
Cade Walker is like no man I’ve ever met before. He’s cynical, brooding, mysterious and, most of all, damaged. He’s a man who declares he’s broken, and one who detests the two very things I live for most: God and love. Yet, I’ve still fallen completely in love with him because I also see the good, something that no one else ever has. I see a man who is strong, silent, honorable and beautiful. He’s a man who is now scarred just as badly on the outside of his body as he is on the inside, all because of me. One who endured severe torture in order to save me from what would be the worst thing I will ever experience in my entire life. He is a man I call my dark angel, one who will have my heart until the end of time, even if I can never have his. 

Cade ~ 
At fifteen years old I lost the only person that ever mattered to me, and the day I lost my little sister in the most vile way was the exact moment I stopped living and only existed. That’s until ten years later, when I walked into an open field in Iraq to hear the most incredible voice I would ever hear in my life. One that rooted me to my spot, and ended up belonging to the most beautiful woman in the world. The only woman to ever make me feel something again, something that I thought was dead inside of me. And no matter how badly I wanted to keep her, I knew I couldn’t. Not with what I have lurking inside of me. It’s something I’ve always kept hidden. That is, until the day I unleashed it on the people who dared to hurt her. It was the one thing that gave me the strength to save us, but it was also the one thing that would remind me of why I could never have her. 

Now two years later, the one girl I never thought I would ever see again, the one I have spent my days and nights craving like an addict, walks back into my life unexpectedly, giving us both the shock of our lives. And when the time comes that she needs me again, I no longer resist. Before I know it, I’m pulled into a life I thought I could never have, one that scares the shit out of me but it’s one I’m realizing I want. There is just one problem. One very big problem… She lives for the very thing I loathe, and the one thing that killed my sister… God.   

WARNING: This book deals with mature subject matter such as coarse language, sexual situations, and abuse. It is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. This is the darkest book yet, and is centered around loss, love and finding oneself. Religion plays a very big part in this book - the good and the bad. If this is a subject you are sensitive about then this might not be the book for you.

With my vision blurry from tears, I run toward the one place I’ve loved going to since coming here. The bright morning sun beats down on me, but my body is plagued with too many emotions to feel any of its warmth. They rush through my veins and crawl up my throat, trying to suffocate me, as memories from two years ago play through my head. Good ones, bad ones, they all hit me at once...

The unsuspecting smile of a beautiful but dark man, who captured my attention. The evenings of singing to him in the sunset. His hands and mouth exploring my body as I explored his. A man whose eyes held me captive, and made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world, as he moved inside of me, not only claiming my body but also claiming my heart. The same man who’s shown me the only loving touch I would know for the next two years, and maybe the rest of my life. 

Then come the ugly memories. The ones of rough, unwanted hands that delivered not only pain to my body, but shame to my soul. Ones that tore at my clothes, and took what was not offered to them. The sound of a little boy’s screams, as he begged them to stop, while he was forced to watch me be violated in the worst way.

This is what bitches are for, boy. Fucking, not singing. We will make a man out of you yet. 

A sob of agony rips from my throat and I push myself harder and faster. The burn of my legs and lungs still not enough to quiet the evil running through my head.

“Do you still believe in your God, female?” he asks, holding my cross necklace over my beaten and naked body. When I don’t answer him, he sends another blow to my already battered face.“ANSWER ME!”

“Yes,” I choke out through the blood that pools in my mouth. The sounds of a little boy’s broken sobs fill the air, and rip through my already tortured heart.

“You are a stupid, stupid woman. I will teach you who the real God is. And before you leave this earth you will call me Allah.”

This disgusting person may have stolen my body and tortured my soul, but he would not take my faith. Not ever. I stare defiantly into his malevolent dark eyes, my fear long forgotten. “Over my dead body.”

He responds with a malicious smile, “So be it, bitch.”

Spotting the crystal blue waves in the near distance, I push myself harder as I race toward the beautiful, deserted beach. As soon as my feet hit the sand I slow only enough to toe off my running shoes and ankle socks before rushing into the ice-cold ocean. Once I’m far enough out, I dive in headfirst and let the fresh water steal my breath and cleanse my soul. 

My lungs begin to burn so much its almost unbearable, but it does the trick. The dirty and ugly memories begin to wash away, but instead of being replaced with beautiful ones of the man who once held my heart, it holds the one of a man who was severely tortured and beaten... all because of me. The same man who saved my life then refused to ever see me again. And the worst part is, I still dont know if its because he blames me, or because he cant bear to look at me knowing what they did to me.

RELEASE BLITZ ~ Unforgiven by Rebecca Shea!


We are so excited to celebrate the release of 


by Rebecca Shea today! 

Trust us, you do not want to miss out Lindsay and Matt's story!

Lindsay Christianson seemingly has it all—the perfect career, the perfect boyfriend, and the best-laid plans for a perfect life—until one phone call changes everything.

With a moments notice, Lindsay must choose between her perfect life and her professional dreams. The choice momentarily seems clear when the opportunity to propel her career abruptly sends her across the country, leaving everything she loves behind in North Carolina.

Navigating a new city with a broken heart and a job where her colleagues will do anything to sabotage her success, the pressure quickly becomes too great. When old habits resurface, Lindsay finds herself chasing demons she thought were long since buried.

With pain and destruction left in her wake, will Lindsay find a way to erase the damage she’s done, or will her sins remain unforgiven?

**This book is a Contemporary Romance and contains mature subject matter not intended for those under 17**

I’ve loved this series from the beginning and was itching to hear Matt & Lindsay’s story.

They are just so perfect for each other ~ dating, well practically living together and just seem to be exactly what the other needs, they both work hard and treasure their time together.

I love how Matt adores Lindsay, there’s no lengths he wont go to to make her happy, he’s desperate for everybody to know how much he loves her but they’re behind the times because the worlds worst kept secret isn’t so secret after all.

Then of course it all gets blown to pieces in one fail swoop, I love how Rebecca Shea doesn’t care if she breaks our heart, it’s just par for the course when telling a story, this stuff happens in real life, people mess up & Lindsay messes up huge, if I was her friend I would throttle her, she acts impulsively and selfishly along with stubbornly and recklessly. However, she’s human and she’s claws her way back from the hell she’s carved for herself and starts on a journey to make amends for all of her wrongs. She learns some harsh life lessons and she most certainly learns from them.

And then poor, poor Matt, he’s heartbroken, shocked & so damn angry but I hated how he let Lindsay go without a fight or even a discussion, I think that was his biggest mistake & far too difficult for him to come back from unscathed.

Both Lindsay & Matt go on their own separate journeys to find out who they really are and I was on the edge of my seat seeing if they’d both work it out, I was so frustrated with how it all played out that I loved how much their story affected me.

As always with a good series, the side characters can make or break a good book and with this gang it just makes it, loved hearing about Jess and how the rift has healed with Landon.

Love Rebecca Shea and cannot wait to see what she comes up with next.
