✯ COVER REVEAL ✯ The Day He Came Back by Penelope Ward ✯

COVER REVEAL

THE DAY HE CAME BACK

(A standalone)

Release date: 8/19/2019

 

A Contemporary Romance Novel

 

New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author

Penelope Ward

 

 

Synopsis:

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

 

It was the summer of my life.

I’d met the guy of my dreams.

Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer—and very much off-limits.

But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful.

He never treated me as his mother did—like hired help.

Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.

 

What a summer it was.

Until it all ended—badly.

 

I was never supposed to see Gavin again.

That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years.

I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.

 

When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again.

But I wasn’t prepared.

What if he hated me?

What if he loved someone else now?

I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns.

 

And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.

✯ COVER REVEAL ✯ Royally His by Madison Faye ✯




Title: Royally His
Series: Triple Crown Club #4
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Royal Romance
Cover Design: Coverlüv
Photo: Sara Eirew
Model: Mike Chabot
Release Date: July 1, 2019



Blurb

Forbidden. Sinful. Scandalous. It’s a place where royal men come to share.
But the Triple Crown Club’s master has a singular, unstoppable, undeniable obsession: me.

The dark, dangerous, gorgeous, and possessive “Mr. X.” runs the most exclusive club on the planet. A place out of fantasy, where the world’s royal and elite come to play out their most forbidden desires.

But for an untouched princess like me? Well, I’d have nothing to do with a place like that, or a man like Xander Hunt.

…Except, he’s about to have everything to do with me.

See, my father, King Aldo, is at a war of sorts with Mr. X. But you don’t go up against the most powerful, shadowy man in the royal world without consequences. And now, there’s a debt to be paid, and Mr. X is about to collect in full.

And he’s come for me.

I shouldn’t be this excited to be his prize. When his big strong hands pull me close, I should scream, not melt. And when his forbidden, perfect lips whisper all sorts of filthy, toe-curlingly wicked things into my ear, I should run, not beg for more.

Ever heard of the fairytale where the Princess runs off with the gorgeous and irresistible King of the shadow?

…Well, now you have.

Age is just a number.

Just like he's just a boy and I'm just a girl.

Except that's not true, is it?

Because fifteen may be a number, but it's bigger than that. Bigger than us.

It's a number that separates us.

An excuse that keeps us apart.

But I'm not willing to give in until I get what I want.

After all, how many other girls can bring a grown man to his knees with one little smile?

Excerpt

Prologue
Charlie / 16

The hands gripping my waist are the wrong size. They’re too eager, too desperate as they trail around my back and cup my butt. I don’t like them. I even push them away. But they always come back, gripping, kneading, demanding.
He wouldn’t do this to me.
His hands are perfect.
But he’s not here anymore.
The music gets louder, but not enough to drown out the memories I have of him—the feel of soft kisses trailing down my naked back, or a hand brushing through my hair, or hushed murmurs promising me we’d be okay.
I can’t do this.
Placing my hands over the stranger’s, I try losing myself to the music. His groin to mine, our hips swaying. It’s not enough though.
I need something else. Something more.
Just one more shot.
Just one more pill.
We used to promise each other one more day, because we knew it was wrong. Neither of us could give each other up. We were addicted.
“Charlie …”
“Tomorrow.”

Review: Forever and Never

Forever and Never Forever and Never by Ella Fields
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Forever and Never by Ella Fields is the second installment in the Magnolia Cove series and can be read as a standalone. Ella Fields continues to write angst-filled, heartwarming romances that repeatedly speaks to your soul and manages to leave a lasting impression. This novel is no exception. I had no idea what to expect when I went in, all I was told was that it would leave me in a world full of pain, heartache but filled with so much love. So I was definitely hesitant and scared to start reading because, based on the author's previous works, I never really made it out in one piece.

This novel tells the story of Daphne and Lars. An unlikely coupling, from different worlds and statures in life but somehow, still manage to connect through experiences and broken pasts. And it helps that the chemistry between these two is off the charts and the banter is intense. It starts off like any other high school romance, there is a push and pull between the two main characters, hesitant to give in to their feelings but can't fight off how strong their attraction to each other is. It's such a sexy read and makes me feel like I was Daphne and was going through everything right along with her. So when she fell for Lars, I was falling alongside her. And then just when you thought, their only problems were their attraction, their different lifestyles and other smaller issues, something big comes along that basically makes you think all hope is lost.

This book gutted me. It's like this author reached into my chest and ripped my heart out of it, uncaring of the mess it left me in. I cried, oh how I cried, I laughed and I loved so deeply, I was a broken mess in bed for a while. I don't think I can say anymore without spoiling it, but the angst will hit you when it least expects it. One minute you're drowning in love, lust and passion and the next minute, you're just consumed with sadness, hatred, and anger. All the while knowing it's coming from a place of love, and sitting on the edge of my seat trying to figure out how they were gonna make it out of it.

A beautiful story of love, heartache and how to overcome even the most impossible of situations. I definitely recommend this novel, series, and author. This author never disappoints and I can't wait to see what she brings next. Experience the beautiful trauma only this book can give you.

TS - BT banner

Teardrop Shot, an all-new sexy and angst filled sports romance from New York Times bestselling author Tijan is available now!

Teardrop Shot Ebook Cover

I asked for his criteria for bed buddies–that's the PG version.
He swore at me and said he didn’t do groupies. And just like that, our friendship was off to a great start.
Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder.
Gorgeous. Cocky. Loved by the nation.
He’s also attending preseason basketball training camp where I used to work.
Correction: where I work again, because I was fired from my last job.
And dumped.
And I might have a tiny bit of baggage, but that’s normal. Right?
Reese and I shouldn’t have become friends. We shouldn’t have become roommates.
And we really shouldn’t have started sleeping together … (Except we did.)
I’m adorably psychotic. He’s in the NBA.
This is not a disaster waiting to happen, at all.
Teardrop Shot is a 107k standalone with brand new characters.

Excerpt:
He came out, all ready, saw me, and shook his head.
Giving him the biggest smile I could muster, I handed over his
coffee and dangled my keys. “Let’s go.”
My neighbor was coming home from his night shift at a factory.
He was trudging down the hallway when he saw us, lifted a hand in greeting, then stopped.
His head shot upright and his shoulders stiffened.
He rotated swiftly on his heels, his eyes wide and bulging. He held up a hand. “Is that—”
“No.” Lying. Another superhero quality of mine. “It’s late, Bill. That’s my brother.”
Reese squashed a laugh and nodded to the guy. “What’s up.”
It wasn’t a question, but a greeting, and he hustled me past my neighbor.
I gave Reese a look as we went to my underground parking spot.
“He’s going to hammer me later. He’ll know he wasn’t seeing things.”
“He’s a fan?”
“The biggest.”
Reese smirked, meeting my gaze over the top of my car. “Bigger than you?”
We were entering cheesy territory here. We needed to scale it back.
“I have a cardboard cutout of you,” I told him. “In my closet.”
He froze. “You’re joking.”
I was, but now I had to buy one. “Wouldn’t you like to think that.”
Settling into my chair, I felt better—more familiar terrain again.
“But the funny thing is, next time you come, you won’t know if I was serious or if I bought him after I told you.”
Reese just rolled his eyes, putting the coffees in the cup holders for both of us.
He was looking around as I pulled out of the lot. “This is actually a nice place.”
“The underground parking is nice. The apartment building itself is okay. Nothing great.”
I didn’t tell him how the lights in the laundry room would dim, so if I used those machines,
I had to prop the door open with a rock. Or how I’d only do my clothes between seven in the morning and nine. Nine was the latest.
After that, people were stirring, and there were a few neighbors I wasn’t so sure about.
Reese whistled as I pulled up to departures seven minutes later. “You weren’t kidding. That’s close.”
“And you’ve barely had your coffee.”
He yawned now, blinking a few times. “I’ll grab some inside. You can have it.”
I parked, but didn’t shut off the engine.
“Do not get out,” he warned.
I grinned. “Wasn’t planning on it. We really don’t need to go to that level, with the hugging,
would we kiss or not… Too many strings, friend.”
He smiled back, but his eyes had started to smolder a bit. He leaned over, dropping his voice,
“I’ll answer one of those questions.” His lips caught mine in a good, firm kiss, one that sent my
senses spiraling and stole just the slightest bit of oxygen from my lungs.
I might’ve needed to gather my bearings as he pulled back and grabbed his bag from the back.
Before he turned, he gave me a second kiss, this one lighter. “Go home. Go to bed,”
he said as he reached for the door. “Text me when you park, and again when you’re inside your place. Humor me. I’m a friend. I can care.”
He was starting to leave, but I tugged on his shirt.
He paused, looking back.
“And after that?” I asked.
“We’re friends. Let’s play it by ear.”
Our gazes held, a shared reminder of the other details in our agreement.
I saw his darkening, so I let go. “Okey-dokey. Hope you don’t get mauled.”
He laughed. “It’s too early for that.”
But we both knew the truth. It could happen.
As if reading my mind, he amended, “It’s usually not that bad.
If it is—and I don’t think it will be—airport security is good with celebrities here.
They’ve got a special room and everything. Plus…”
He reached in his bag and pulled out a baseball hat, dragging it low over his eyes and flicking up his hood.
“This is pretty incognito.”
His height wasn’t, but I decided to pick my battles.
“I’ll expect twenty questions by the time you land.”
He laughed. “Don’t think so. I’m going to be sleeping that whole time,
but I’ll text you updates just to annoy you.” He got out, but bent back down, his tone more serious.
“Do me a favor? Only take that job if you want it. Don’t take it because you feel desperate. I can loan you money, if anything.”
That wiped all joking aside. “Reese.” Dammit. “I’ll never lose myself in a guy again. Ever.”
“Yeah, but before you didn’t have a friend who could loan you money until you got to a place where you could pick
something that actually made you happy.” His eyes flashed a warning. “Now you do. Just think about it. It’s a loan.
I’d give one to another friend in the same spot.”
I rolled my eyes.
He chuckled. “Drive safe. I liked screwing you. Let’s do it again and soon.”
“I changed my mind. Get mauled!”
I could hear his laugh as he shut the door and headed inside, his bag over his shoulder.
Only a couple guys squinted at him, their heads cocked to the side. He was right.
His incognito look really was incognito, but he was still frustrating.
And I was hoping for thesoontoo.
Driving back, my phone kept buzzing.
Reese: Checking in.
Reese: I had to check my bag. It’s too big for a carry-on.
Reese: Two autographs.
Reese: Going up the escalator now.
Reese: At the security line. The guards are cool.
They promised not to be angry when Thunder beats the Coyotes.
Reese: Through security.
He knew I couldn’t answer. I was driving.
Reese: I’m at gate A6.
Reese: This is a nice airport. I always forget till I get here.
Reese: I upgraded to first class.
Reese: Coach wants to make sure I get back in time for meetings this morning.
Reese: Still not boarding. Just letting you know.
After parking, I grabbed my phone.
Me: It’s supposed to be questions. Like, if I asked security if I could put a body in my bag,
could I still check it? Questions like that. You’re not following the rules.
Reese: Fuck the rules. These are my rules.
Reese: You do questions. I do updates. Deal with it.
Reese: Except now. Are you back at your place?
Me: Yes. Walking upstairs now.
Reese: No updates from you. Well. Yes. Tell me when you get in your place.
I turned down my hallway. Bill’s door opened and his head popped out.
His hair was scruffed up like he’d been trying for a Mohawk. “No bullshit. Was that him?”
I was about to break a fellow Reese Forster fan’s heart. “It was my brother.”
He glared. “You’re not fucking with me?”
“No.”
“Oh.”
That was it.
His head went back in, and he slammed his door shut.
Immediately Mrs. Rings yelled from her apartment across the hall.
“STOP SLAMMING THE DOORS! EVERYONE FUCKING SHUT IT!”
And her parrot a second later.
“STOP SLAMMING FUCKING SHUT IT!”
And then, “SHUT IT, BORIS!”

And her parrot again, “EVERYONE FUCK IT AND GO TO SLEEP!”
