Cover Reveal: UNLOVED by Marley Valentine


Release Date: December 8

From USA Today bestselling author Marley Valentine comes an all new emotional, hurt/comfort, polyamorous romance. 


We longed. We lost. We loved. Desperately.


I thought I had my life all figured out. But after a college football accident leaves me deaf, I was learning how to live all over again. 


I expected the anger, the frustration, and the struggle to readjust, but what I didn’t expect to happen amongst the chaos, was to fall in love. 


Especially not with two men.  


Rough-edged puzzle pieces, Rhys, Samuel, and I were nothing but aching memories, painful realities, and hidden scars. 


We were products of our pasts, abandoned and unloved, messy and complicated. Individually we had baggage; together we had mountains to climb. 


But when the three of us were tangled up in one another, spilling secrets in the dark, hearts beating in sync, nothing else mattered but them. 


We needed to break the cycle, because they deserved love… And who knows, maybe I finally did too.

What to expect:

✔️Christian romance

✔️Marriage of convenience

✔️Brother’s best friend romance

✔️Military romance.


Brought together by grief…

When her brother is killed in action in Afghanistan, Stephanie (Stevie) finds herself unexpectedly thrown into the role of sole guardian of her two young nephews.

Determined to do the best she can for them, Stevie enters a marriage of convenience with her brother’s best friend. After all, she has known Chase for years and knows that he will provide for and protect them as if they were a real family.

It doesn’t matter that she had always hoped for more with Chase, for her nephews, she will put her own dreams on hold, the same way her brother had when they themselves had been orphaned too young.

Will the weight of guilt tear them apart…

There was nothing that Chase would not do for Kyle. Kids when they first met, they had spent more time together than apart.

Marrying Stevie was a no-brainer. She and the boys needed a stable home, medical insurance, and familiar faces to help them heal, all benefits that Chase could provide.

The fact that it was Chase’s fault that Kyle was gone was his own personal cross to bear. One that he was determined no one else should ever find out about.

Or will faith lead them to forgiveness and love?

As Stevie and Chase begin blending their lives together, helping the boys through the first year without their beloved daddy, they begin to see each other, and themselves, in a different light.

When Stevie learns the truth of her brother’s death, will she be able to forgive Chase, and claim the happiness they both deserve, or will she lose him forever?

It’s not every day you meet a man at the bar, stare at him for hours, and then right when you decide to make a move, he gets up to leave. Worse, when you follow him outside, you see him completely change his appearance by shucking a wig and a button down shirt, dropping them into the nearest trash can.

When Crimson looks around to see who noticed the complete one-eighty that’s just taken place, not a single person notices or cares. When she looks back, he’s gone.

Dejected, she leaves, thinking maybe she’d hallucinated and made the whole night up.

Only, just as she passes a dark alley, she’s taken. Literally and figuratively.

That’s the night that Winston Cyrus Osborn, III walks into her life.


Crimson is the worst type of woman.

She’s curious.

And curiosity kills the cat in his line of work.

With nothing else left to lose, he’s set to rid this world of the filth that infests it. And in doing that, he’s made a lot of enemies that would like nothing better than to ruin him and every single person he cares about.

At every turn, she’s there, insinuating herself into his life. And despite his attempts to keep her at arm’s length, she blows past every single barrier he erects.

He should really stay away.

He should also make sure that she stays out of his business.

Yet, he keeps letting her in. And she keeps reminding him why he wants her to stay.

Clown Motel is the latest release from Lani Lynn Vale in her Welcome to the Circus series. 

Crimson’s story is one that definitely helps to pull the series together. So many revelations came out about the Singh family. Crimson as well as her entire family has overcome so much throughout their lives. 

I love that she and Winston met and found one another. I absolutely loved Winston’s story and how he helps people. The way that Crimson and Winston’s relationship developed was amazing to read as they work together to help Crimson’s family’s and others that have gone through something similar or more horrific. 

I’m really looking forward to reading the next Singh family member’s story.

Shatterproof #1 for F-R-E-E 11/20 only!







From USA TODAY Bestselling author Xavier Neal comes the jaw-dropping, heart pounding conclusion to this best friends-to-lovers, forced proximity, romantic suspense duet!

The assignment is simple.

Don't let the client get kidnapped.

Don't let someone kill her.

Don't screw up our now very real relationship.

It's the last part that complicates what would otherwise be a fairly run of the mill operation.

If we weren't dating, the only thing I would have to worry about would be following standard procedures such as making sure her locations are secure.

That we aren't being followed.

That those in her inner circle haven't been compromised.

But because we are, I now have to deal with her sabotaging ex boyfriend.

And an unexpected female guest showing up on our double date.

And a meddling team member who thinks he's helping instead of simply giving me more headaches.

All of these things make my mission significantly harder.

As does trying to decide if we're moving too fast.

As does having to come in second to her career.

As does my best friend herself when she finally has to decide what our future together looks like.

To the company I work for, my main objective is to find and eliminate the unidentified threat that's been stalking one of their most valuable assets.

But to me?

My only job is to protect the love of my life - or die trying.

New Release: UNTIL HANNA by Aurora Rose Reynolds


 Release Date: November 17

Hanna has always dreamt of the day when she’d find the perfect man and start a family of her own. But one horrible dating experience after an another, has her second guessing her ability to trust her own judgment when it comes to men. After her last failed relationship with a man who had a whole other life that she knew nothing about, she makes a promise to herself:

No dating and no serious relationships for a year. 

But a vacation fling isn’t dating, is it?

Walker St. James has always lived his life one adventure at a time, and settling down hasn’t been something he’s ever considered until her. Hanna Mayson. A woman he knows he could easily fall in love with. But while he’s trying to figure out how to make things between them work, she informs him that all she wants is a vacation hook up.

Giving her what she wants is easy but if he gets his way, they will be anything but temporary.

Until Hanna was such a great escape from reality, it captured my attention. I loved the characters so much, their entertaining banter made me laugh! Its also been a while since I have read a book by the author and I feel I definitely need to read more from her.

When Hannah meets Walker, lets just say the undeniable chemistry is hard to ignore. What eventuates is a wonderful story with so many feels. 

Will Hannah give into temptation? Vacation fling or not, Walker is nothing short of determined and its quite entertaining to see the lengths he will go to, to be with Hanna.

I cannot even begin to describe how truly amazing this book is, the storyline made for a captivating read! Loved it & highly recommend it!

Cover Reveal & Giveaway:
Lonely Diner
By Dann Hazel

Lonely Diner Cover

Some Like It Haute! Book 3

Two conflicted military men. A longing for happiness. One Lonely Diner, where people often search for a recipe for love. (The food is good there, too.)

One man plays it straight. Another grieves over a lost best friend with benefits.

Everyone thought they were meant for each other. Lance, an Air Force computer engineer, and Ryan, a former submariner in the Navy and now a military college professor, are gay men blinded by the painful wounds of their past decisions. Both men are ready for love. But because of their pasts, they’ve slammed the brakes on their desires.

Now thirty years old, a younger Ryan Ball decides he can be happy only by conforming to social expectations. So what does he do? He decides he must have a wife and kids. Though he acknowledges that he can never be straight, he is convinced that with effort, determination, alcohol and erectile dysfunction meds, he can play the necessary roles.

Vikki, Ryan’s girlfriend in high school and now his wife, begs to differ.

At thirty-one, Lance Dingle falls for his best friend and roommate, Randy, a stunt pilot who agrees to a friends-with-benefits arrangement. From Lance’s perspective, there’s a spark in their arrangement that Randy denies. Then, tragedy strikes. Lance finds himself alone and lonely, living with memories of Randy and an ever-expanding list of “what-might-have-beens.” Finally forcing himself into the dating scene, Lance discovers that Mr. Right is more elusive than he ever imagined.

Then, Callie Yenti, transwoman, drag performer extraordinaire and entrepreneur, enters the picture. She owns the popular Lonely Diner and possesses an uncanny insight into the workings of the heart.

Even the complicated hearts of her two hard-headed friends, Lance and Ryan.

A HEA gay romance.

Trigger Warning: This novel includes scenes from a sexual assault and a PTSD episode.

Tropes: Military Romance, Coming Out, Overcoming Adversity, Second Chances.
