Cars, Coffee, and a Slightly Used Casket
Julia Karr Book 2
by K.C. Hilton
Genre: Humor, Satire
**Recipient of the 2018 Readers’ Favorite Finalist Award!**
Our favorite car dealer is back, kicking ass and taking names, and she’s
just as fabulous as ever.
Julia Karr is a used car lot owner and she isn’t expecting an invitation to
the popularity pool. Her business is drowning with past due accounts,
difficult customers and crazy repossessions. In order to get the
vacation of her dreams, Julia makes a deal with her husband.
After catching a burglar, tackling a customer, and looking down the barrel
of a gun, it’s clear to this feisty car dealer that her vacation may
be harder to achieve than she thought. Daily chaos drives Julia to
eat more chocolate, buy more wine, and prepare for the afterlife. She
could blame it on the contractor, the cheap casket, or a naked
friend, but she’d rather blame it on the car lot.
Author C.J. Anaya — Julia Karr is the Stephanie Plum of car dealers.

Muffin Top * Avery Flynn

“Avery Flynn knocks it out of the park again!”

– Tawna Fenske, USA Today bestselling author

Muffin Top, a hot romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn is coming October 29th and we have the new cover!

Muffin Top 1600px.jpg

The only thing about me that’s a size zero is the filter on my mouth. I’ve got a big personality, a big rack, and a big number on the scale. And I’m perfectly fine with that.

But when some random guy suggests I might not be eating alone if I’d ordered a salad instead of a hamburger I’m shocked silent, which is a feat, trust me.

That brings us to one sexy fireman named Frankie Hartigan. He’s hot. He’s funny… And he’s just apologized for being late for our “date” then glared at the fat-shaming jerk. Next thing I know, he’s sitting down and ordering himself dinner.

I have no problem telling him I don’t need a pity date . . . unless of course it’s to my high school reunion next week. Oops where did that last bit come from? And what do I do now that he’s said yes?!

Because this is no make-over story, and I think Frankie is using me for something. I just have to figure out what…

About Avery

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Money is my mistress.
Solving problems, my trade.
Until the tables
turn, and trouble finds me.
Now on the run, I need a plan.
But not before I’m blindsided by a pain-in-the-ass stranger.
Maggie.
Curves, startling blue eyes, and she hates me.
I don’t trust her and
with good reason.
My plan is simple: use her.
Then I kiss her. Touch her.
Crave her.
She was my way out,
now she’s my downfall.
Prophet is
a full length, standalone enemies-to-lovers romance with a HEA.

Excerpt
Maggie
saunters through one of the bay doors in greasy coveralls, much like the ones
on the bathroom floor last night.
Two thick
raven braids like shiny rope trail over her shoulders. She has a completely
different look. Younger. Innocent. A stark contrast to the fierce woman last
night who could hold her own, not backing down no matter the situation.
I feast on
her delicate bone structure and smooth moves. Elegance seeps from her every
pore despite being covered in grease. I saw the same last night. Even naked and
fighting, or shivering and vulnerable, she was pure grace.
She’s both
queen and warrior. A young Elizabeth Taylor or Grace Kelly with her small, pert
nose; full, perfectly symmetrical lips, and high cheekbones; and her enigmatic
eyes.
The
bruising on her neck jerks me from my trance. She didn’t bother to hide the
marks from our altercation last night, and it’s the first thing blond boy
notices.
I gnash my
teeth together at the scarlet markings on her pale flesh. My fingerprints,
angry and raw, band her throat, and it’s as if I feel her thumping pulse again.
The violent
and sudden urge to hit something erupts within me. I don’t hurt women. Never.
But I also never give anyone the chance to kill me. The jury is still out on
whether that was why she was at the loft.
Golden Boy
attempts to touch, but she steps back. Undeterred by her rebuke, he leans in to
kiss her, hungry. Again, she shifts slightly, his lips brushing her cheek
instead of her mouth. His face flushes like a little boy put in the corner.
Boyfriend?
Friend? Either way, things aren’t all rosy, not with the move she just made.
He follows
her like a puppy dog inside the building. A slow, easy smirk slides across my
face. She’s got him by the balls. Better him than me.
My phone
vibrates, and I glance at the text with an encrypted attachment.
Paddy:
You’re going to want to see this.
The file is
brief, but enough to almost choke me with the details. Any residual shame from
the way I handled her last night evaporates.
Glimpsing
the sable-haired beauty disappearing from my view, my blood simmers, both
satisfied with being right about her and incensed at her deception. Last
night’s mix-up at the loft wasn’t a fluke.
There’s
more to Maggie than meets the eye. She may be the perfect portrait of class,
but I see under her veneer. She’s a fake.

There are angels and demons at war inside my
head.
I had it all figured out: finish high school, attend seminary and finally

was her.

Grace Miller.

The girl who was always out of my reach. The girl who still makes me lose my
breath with just a look.

Little did I know she would become my temptation and vice, and quite possibly,
my ruin.

Now I’m standing at a crossroads, and my head is a battlefield. How do I choose
sides when it means losing a part of who I am?

Out of Site * Matthew S Cox

Out of Sight
Matthew S. Cox
Publication date: August 13th 2018
Genres: Dystopian, Young Adult

Most Citizens hold Outcasts in dim regard, but Sima never expected they’d throw her off the planet.

In 2411, overpopulation has spread a plaque of filthy, congested city to the corners of the Earth. Government has raised corruption to an art form, and no one hears the cries of those left to die in the dark passageways of civilization. Following the End of Nations, people cling to the only division left: social status.

Since running away from home four years ago, she’s managed to stay a step ahead of death―or worse. At sixteen, she’s getting too old to survive from begging, despite her best effort to pretend she’s younger. Worse, the sidewalks teem with little kids edging in on her turf, monopolizing Citizens’ charity with their wide, pleading eyes and genuine innocence.

A chance meeting with suspiciously nice cops leaves her more confused than ever. Between deadly gangs, unforgiving security forces, and a terrifying madam eager to exploit a girl her age, merely getting older is the biggest threat to her life. With no good choice to make, she risks the least of three evils.

Sima thought her life on Earth had been dangerous…

She hasn’t seen anything yet.

He’d protect her from any threat…
But what if the biggest threat is him?

Doctor Anne Nichols is back in Oak Creek, Wyoming, only because she has no other options. Here, she was always the shy, stuttering girl, invisible to everyone.

Except Zac Mackay. The very reason she left in the first place.

Zac’s years in Special Forces taught him survival skills, and he’s created a company—Linear Tactical—to teach those skills to others, so they never have to live in fear.

Then why is Annie, the last person he’d ever want to hurt, afraid of him?

Zac’s determined to wipe the fear from the eyes of the woman who has never been far from his mind. And fix the mistakes—his mistakes—that put that look there in the first place.

But a predator has set his sights on Annie. And now survival skills will become much more than lessons…

Flirting with Fire * Piper Rayne

 

 

 

 

Everyone knows that if you play with fire you’ll end up getting burned…

What happens when you attend a first responder’s bachelor auction with your best friends? Well, if your name is Madison Kelly like me, your friends end up bidding on a date for you with your high school crush.

That’s right. Even back when I was ‘Fatty Maddie’ to all my classmates, I had eyes for the quarterback of our football team. Not like I was the only one.

Mauro Bianco may fight fires for a living, but he still sets my heart ablaze. One look at the rugged, muscular man he’s turned into and I want to slide down his pole.

One date. That’s all I’m committed to. A few hours and I can tuck him back into that tattered old shoebox in my closet.

As always, the universe has other plans. I never would’ve predicted that in a matter of days he’d turn from my dream guy into my enemy.

My brothers widen their stances, share a look of amusement and cock their eyebrows at me.

“Hate to break it to you, but Maddie didn’t bid on you. Lauren did.” Luca laughs while Cristian chuckles.

“I’m going out with a Madison and she didn’t go to our high school. Which reminds me.” I pull out my phone.

“Maddie is Madison, you idiot,” Luca says. “Her and Lauren were my year.”

“I went to high school with Madison?” I try to let her face come back to me, and though I can picture her bright blue eyes and long chestnut hair, nothing about her is familiar from high school.

“Yes, but she definitely wasn’t hanging out at the bonfires and football pep rallies.” Luca grabs his helmet off his bike. The only responsible thing I’ve seen him do in the last few years.

“Well, shit and she doesn’t even want to go out with me? Her friend bid on me?”

Luca straddles his bike with a grin. I look over to Cristian, but he’s putting his shirt back on and starts fiddling with his earbuds. They obviously think this conversation is over.

“Yeah, but we’re all in the same boat.” Cristian’s thumb moves over his phone screen. “Maddie’s awesome and I think you’ll have a good time with her.”

“She seemed pretty quiet and way too accommodating,” I say.

Luca kicks his stand up, letting the bike rock a little under him.

Cristian’s hands freeze on the screen of his phone. “And that’s bad?” he asks.

“I want a woman who knows what she wants. Has her own damn opinions. Doesn’t just agree with everything I say.”

Cristian peeks over his shoulder, a look of amusement that matches Luca’s. “You want a girl to come up and grab your nuts?”

“I want a girl who knows what her favorite food is, has an opinion about where she wants to go for dinner, likes whatever sports team she likes and doesn’t default to my favorites.” I stuff my hands into my pockets, digging out my keys for my truck.

“Well then, Maddie might not be the one. Like I said, she’s nice.” Cristian slaps me on the shoulder. “Treat her good though, okay?” He inserts one earbud.

“What do you think I’m going to do, leave her in Garfield Park?”

He puts his other earbud in. “That’s not even funny man. I have a friend in that district and the shit that goes down there…” He shakes his head.

Cristian loses the entire point of my statement—the fact I’m not a jackass. I’m not Luca.

“It’s one date,” I say. “And who knows, maybe she’s nice but still has a wild streak.”

Christian again glances over to Luca who’s smiling like he’s fucking Mickey Mouse.

“Well, good luck on your date,” he says.

Cristian jogs away and Luca’s bike starts up.

I head to my truck.

The conversation is over, but I’m curious now.

Where’s my damn yearbook?
