Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance/Supernatural Mystery/Fantasy/Clean Romance

Format/# of copies: 5 ebooks (Kindle) – U.S. only winners

Blurb:  When a malicious chair's only desire is to prosper from the negative thoughts of doomed relationships—will Clarisse be willing to trade her mind for a premonition of love?

They don't have the safety of distance to rely upon—only five days to decide if they are made for each other before Harry leaves back home—or will the mysterious scarlet chair decide their fate?


She was unlucky in love, recently separated and desperately searching for the man of her dreams. For Clarisse, life became so lonely that she fell in love with his picture. For Harry, recently divorced— it carried risk and uncertainty.
In this heart-rending search for passion, he travels to the city of our affection (Manila) to meet Clarisse—a woman of immense beauty and problematic past. In this journey of new adult love, Harry leaves his western-centric norms behind. He is immersed in the city of affection—vibrant, alive, bustling and enjoying the pleasure of being. But will Clarisse have the courage to tell him everything—past secrets, fears, and inhibition. She has never dated a foreign man before, and how will this relationship play out?
The Girl in the Scarlet Chair is the first book in the City of Affection series—a new adult, clean romance with paranormal and supernatural elements by Janice Tremayne. The three-part series takes you on a heart-rending, supernatural and paranormal romantic experience. Love is not straightforward in the city of affection—shrouded in old family superstition and tragic tales, there are no shortcuts to an enduring relationship, and love becomes a test of fortitude and devotion. There is constant negative energy at play that threatens to destroy relationships before they can grow into altars of love. For those bold enough to travel to the city of affection in search of everlasting happiness—difficult challenges await. Each book in the series will immerse you in a different relationship, their challenges and a unique storyline.

In spite of her innocence, she's determined to make it up to him.

5)      Perfect Odds by Lashanta Charles



Genre: Romantic Suspense with some comedy

Format/# of copies: 2 ebook copies

Blurb:  Calista Brenner refuses to let go of her past. She had her entire life figured out…except, maybe that was only in her mind. Being stood up for her own wedding should be a clue. Regardless, she’s determined to fix this. She just needs a plan and if there’s one thing she’s good at, it’s planning. It doesn’t matter that she’s a whirlwind of clumsy chaos. All she has to do is stay away from the gorgeously irritating Jayce Cranston and her wedding-her life-will be back on track. That’s exactly what she wants. Right?

Jayce Cranston has somehow let himself be bamboozled. One minute he’s enjoying his quiet existence in his home in the outskirts of Buffalo, NY and the next he’s dealing with a beautiful alcoholic and her penchant for trouble. And with his business manager out of the office, he has to actually . . . deal with people. Surprisingly, the little ball of clumsiness is making that task so much easier to handle.

Neither of them could have guessed that Calista’s past would decide it wants to be her future and will stop at nothing to make that a reality. Could she accept that maybe her carefully laid plans weren’t as careful as she thought? Will Jayce be able to show her that he’s worth a chance and, together, their oddities can be perfect?

Blurb:  These are dangerous times on Etherya's Earth...
Slayer Princess Miranda, heir to the throne, has hated the Vampyres for a thousand years. Since the Awakening, she's fought to protect her people, choosing to be a warrior more than a royal. When a female Vampyre washes up on the shore of her compound's riverbank, she seizes the opportunity to take the offensive.
Sathan, King of the Vampyres, distraught at his sister's disappearance and captivity, agrees to travel with Miranda to resect the Blade of Pestilence, also hoping to change his people's state of endless war. Although the woman hates him due to the constant raids on her compound for the Slayers' life-giving blood, he can't help but admire the stubborn and strong princess.
As their journey progresses, both begin to understand that they are aligned in their hatred of Crimeous, leader of the Deamons, as well as their hope for peace between the Slayers and Vampyres. Determined to fight their growing attraction, they forge a tentative truce. But old wounds run deep and trust is scarce. Their faith in each other must remain strong or all will be lost...

18)  The Longest Knight by Sierra N. Terry




Genre:  erotica/fantasy/romance

Format/# of copies:  1 paperback copy (U.S. mailing address only)

Blurb:  The Longest Knight is an erotic romantic fantasy illustrated novel about Princess Milena and the love she carries for the one and only Werewolf knight in her kingdom. After three long years of war with the Borras Kingdom, Princess Milena is sent away in secret by her father to her grandparent's house for her personal safety and she gets to bring none other than the wolf that holds her affections. With the road full of enemy soldiers, wild animals and the threat of being discovered, can the pair make the three day long ride there unharmed? Or will the dangers of war tear them apart before Milena ever has a chance to tell her knight her heart's desire?

The Four Kingdoms series is a series of novels that are loosely based on one another. Most are romantic but not all, one is erotic but none of the others are quite as intense. Each story takes place in one of the four kingdoms but each individual novel can be read as a stand-alone story(it is highly recommended that you read the first one, The Longest Knight, first). Every story has its own strange uniqueness and I hope you will stay with me until the very last one is released!

Genre:  romantic suspense, small town, second chances

Format/# of copies: 1 ebook copy

Blurb:  From the cold Canadian border, the US1 runs along the east coast with patience. Southbound, always south, until it reaches the Sunshine State. Not the fastest way, sure, but if you have time to drive it all the way down, you might find yourself lost in one of the coastal towns that dot the US1 like little jewels. Maybe that town’s name is Crescent Creek.
These are the stories of its people.



All Those Miles I Walked ~ Crescent Creek 1
At eighteen, DJ made a choice–her heart or her dreams. Neither was wrong, yet either would break her heart. She chose the world. Over a decade later, she returns to Crescent Creek and to the one regret she's ever had–Scott.
Scott’s always been steady as a rocky reef. He’d loved once and when she left, his strong heart  crumbled like a sandcastle. Now DJ is back, and Scott wants nothing to do with her. If only Eva, his and DJ’s old friend, didn’t need their help. Because of her, he’s stuck with DJ and he’d be damned, she still gets under his skin.
DJ is a free spirit who needs the road under her feet. Scott is a family man who wants to groom his roots. With danger on their doorstep and a baby to keep safe, how much are they willing to compromise for love?

Painted Love ~ Crescent Creek 2
Thou shalt not steal.
Oh, but Florence had, and would do so one last time. Ten pieces her grandfather painted for her because he loved her. Ten pieces her mother lost, along with anything else, for loving the wrong man. She couldn’t get back everything he’d wasted away, but she’d be damned if she’d give up those paintings.
Easy and genuine, Rhett loves his life–his family, his market, his town. Until he meets a British woman with grey eyes and a cute little smile. The woman he’s been waiting for. The thing is, to love her is easy, but can he trust her?
When Rhett pushes to uncover her agenda, Flo knows she will lose something–the man she loves or what she’d been fighting for years. Which road will she choose?

His Midnight Sun ~ Crescent Creek 3

Blurb:  Water-phobic Nik discovers mermaids and mermen plan to make her a lab experiment. They can’t take no for an answer and will go to any lengths to get what they need.

In the small Florida town of Tarpon Springs, Greek-American Nik Aronopulos avoids water. She never goes to the beach and shuns restaurants with views of the Gulf of Mexico. So, why would merfolk want to study her? When she’s told it’s her ability to stay out of water that interests his people, she’s stunned. There’s nothing special about her… or so she thinks.

Bas is the gorgeous, dark-haired, infuriatingly arrogant merman tasked with obtaining Nik’s cooperation. He needs her to help his people overcome their greatest weakness—the need to rejuvenate in the Gulf so they won’t dehydrate and die. Although they can shapeshift to look like humans and have advantages over land dwellers, their dependence on water keeps them from freedom. There’s just one problem – the girl he’s meant to capture is hooking his heart.

When Bas is shot by a bullet meant for Nik, she must face her greatest fear to help him. Her decision plunges her into a desperate journey where her desire for self-preservation is weighed against her growing feelings for this merman who once meant her harm and what this might mean for all of them.

Genre:  erotica / dystopian dark romance

Format/# of copies:  1 Kindle ebook copy

Blurb:  In this erotic romance set in a dystopian future, healer Gabriel's attempt to convince slavegirl Mariah to trust him goes too far, endangering his life, his freedom, and his sanity. Mariah can save him from the despair that envelopes him only if she can find the strength to trust herself.

Gabriel, on a mission of mercy, is horrified by what he finds when he arrives in Riviera, a land far from his home. So-called “humans,” bored and decadent, amuse themselves with the senseless torture of their slaves. Yet Gabriel finds unexpected friends. An artist named Animal, who notices everything except Rose, his slavegirl. And Mariah, a slave foisted on Gabriel when he unwittingly prevents her from escaping.

Mariah knows that Master Gabriel’s talk of a different way of life, in which slavery does not exist, is merely the latest and cruelest of the mindgames that humans have inflicted on her for her entire life. She must play along, but actually believing in it would bring disaster to her and to everyone she cares about.

Mindgames is about love, and friendship, and the potential for redemption. It is about how one person can change the world, or be destroyed by it.

Reviewers online call Mindgames “absolutely amazing. The perfect balance of substance and sex and never a dull moment.” “Simply magnificent.” “The writing is spare, clean and sprightly.” The writer “proves that writing is an art form that possesses the ability to transfix and transform the reader to faraway lands.” “I LOVE this story, and I think about it all the time.”

Blurb:  When Prince Duncan Caldwell has to enter Cecilia Hurst's Game of Masters and Slaves, he already knows he'll have to play Master if he intends to retrieve the pyramid Cecilia stole from the sacred Nephis Valley. And his choice for a slave can only be Ylianor Meyer, however fiercely Lord Christopher Templeton resents her and her overpowering erotic intrusion in a trip that should've been his and Duncan's alone. No, make that in a love that should've been his and Duncan's alone!
Such is the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is what it seems. Not since soul-mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled, until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer's dilapidated shack changes everything forever.

Mostly the unique connection laced with a load of jealousy and violence that is unknown to their world. Because this isn't just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. The story of three remarkable characters that have to overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet, in order to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! That's their real challenge. Because, if they can't learn to share power and love in equal measures, how will they be able to ensure their world's survival?

100)      The Guardian League Series: 5 Books - Jasper, Centurion, Apollo, Aeron, and Orion by TK Lawyer

 

Genre:  Paranormal Romance/Fantasy


Format/# of copies: Kindle ebook sets - 5

Blurbs:   

JASPER

Single female seeks rare, coveted treasure. That was the announcement Tatiana wanted to splatter across every online dating site. She'd had her share of too many toads.

Where was her elusive prince?

Why did he have to fall for her?


A one-night stand would have been way less complicated.

Jasper wasn't seeking a mate. His only intention was to rescue Tatiana from a near-fatal car accident and move on to his next assignment, but we all know intent and reality don't always coincide.

Saving this fiery vixen altered his world, and now he can't tear himself away... though he know he should. She's not supposed to know he even exists.

Some things are worth fighting for.

Sucked into a sizzling love affair, the two of them are compatible in all the right ways, but they also secretly wrestle with demons that could tear them apart.

And there's that tricky little thing called free will.

As much as Jasper craves her, he can't make her want more. In the end, being with him is her decision. A decision that will most definitely be swayed by a secret he keeps.

Felicity Heaton and Christine Feehan fans beware! This series is your next guilty little pleasure...

CENTURION

A human mate? No thanks.

Centurion watched his colleagues, one by one, drop out of the dating pool, choosing committed relationships with humans vs. bachelorhood. 

Humans were weak, and he preferred things that were strong and hot... like coffee.  He would never fall for one. Not when he had an array of ladies at his disposal.

But you know what they say - never say never.


When an artist's exhibition lands him in front of a wide-eyed goddess named April, she captivates him in all the right ways. Fascinated and curious, he can't get enough of her. There's just one little problem:
She's human.

April is drawn to the hunky angel but he's a lot to handle. Not that it deters her. He's unpredictable, incorrigible, and can't promise forever. Only sporadic, limitless fun.  Unfortunately for him, she's after more than just his body - she also wants his heart, and if he'll let her, she just might be the woman to steal it away.

APOLLO

She was only meant to be an assignment. He didn't expect to fall in love...
Since the day Lauren was born, Apollo has watched her mature, witnessing all her milestones with a strong sense of pride. Advising, protecting, and ever whispering loving and encouraging words in her ear, he saw her blossom into woman he hoped she would be - beautiful and strong.

Unfortunately, she doesn't want to live.

A drastic decision one day brings her face-to-face with her own Guardian Angel - a being she never knew existed. But now, he won't leave her alone. He's relentless, encouraging her to better her life when he doesn't understand what it takes to survive on Earth. Despite his infuriating tenacity, she's drawn to him in ways she can't explain, and Apollo soon becomes as necessary as the air she breathes. 

He only asks for one thing - to be his, forever.

Will she allow Apollo to love and care for her when so many have failed?

AERON

Kim is stuck in a desperate situation – one she never thought she’d wind up in. Her husband has given up. Kim wants her freedom but she’s scared of the unknown. To find true, lasting love is her dream but is it possible?
Little does Kim know who she seeks is searching for her.
Aeron loved and dated. But he never found the right one. As leader and founder of the Guardian League and co-protector of his charge, his responsibilities kept him active; however, something was missing. His life wasn’t complete.
He sought a perfect, unique combination: fiery and spirited with the right mix of nice vs. naughty. But this elusive minx was nowhere to be found. Until the day an enchanting vision caught his eye and he walked straight into a line of people awaiting coffee and beignets. Now that he’s found her, he’s unwilling to let her go. But does Kim have the strength to trust again?

ORION

Why did life have to be so difficult?

Zoe never imagined she would find herself having to choose between two men... or should she say, angels. As exciting as it sounds, the impossible decision is tearing her apart. Does she choose the irresistible one who ignites her body with his passionate kisses, or the wild, untamed one?

Decisions, decisions.

Orion found his fated mate the second he saw her in the reflecting pool. He knows Zoe wants him, but unfortunately, he isn't the only one who's captivated her. His nemesis, Mercury, is her co-guardian and is also vying for her attention. He's also a rebel... and completely wrong for her. 

Torn between the two angels, she must choose only one. Who will be the one to steal her heart, and will the other accept her decision as final?
