I lost my job and got kicked out by my roommate, who happens to be my ex-husband, on the same day.

We'll make one stop and once Mr. King's business is done, we'll continue on to Denver where I'll hopefully land a high paying job that'll keep me from moving back in with my parents. I'm not even thirty, I can't go backwards in life.
Mr. King is unbelievably attractive and intimidating, but it's a short flight and I never have to see him again after it's done. Only we don't make it to Denver.

King's Crown is a standalone novel in the Oil Kings series written by an award-winning author.

Cover Reveal for Wild Minds Duet by J. Saman

Today we are revealing the gorgeous coves for J. Saman’s WILD MINDS Duet! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy for the fantastic sale price on February 27th!


Title: Love To Hate Her

Author: J. Saman

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: February 27th

About Love To Hate Her:

A rare moment of weakness. A burning desire impossible to deny. Forbidden words I should never have spoken. Seven years ago, I confessed my darkest secret to my brother’s girlfriend. When she broke up with him and walked out of our lives, she took my secret with her. But, with my band set to go on tour around the world, I have a problem. I need a nanny for my autistic daughter. And unfortunately, Viola Starr, my brother’s ex, is the perfect fit. Now, there is no escaping her. Or our past. Especially when my brother seems determined to win her back. Five months and she’ll be out of my life again. Five months of ignoring lingering, heated glances. The fire she draws out of me. The way she loves my daughter. Five months… And my world is about to come crashing down around me.

 

Exclusive Excerpt:

Her fingers rake through my hair, tugging until my eyes drag up to hers. “I have a million reasons to leave, Jasper. A million. You push me past my every limit day in and day out. You hate me. Ignore me. Fight with me. Tease me. Tempt me. Make me feel alive and forgotten in the same breath. I have a million reasons to leave. I need one reason to stay. One reason that isn’t your little girl.” I stare into her, my fingers brushing back the long strands of her hair from her face. I hold that reason on my tongue, tasting its sweetness as it burns me like venom. It’s a truth I can’t let go. One I’m not ready for her to have. I’ll probably never be. “He loves you. You love him. How’s that for a reason?” She shakes her head at me, her frustration palpable. “Is that what you’re really thinking right now while I’m sitting on your lap in the dark? With all that we’ve done together this past week? That I love him?” “It’s the only thing that matters between us.” “You’re a liar.” “Am I?” I question, tilting my head, Jules’s words pounding through my skull so loud I can hardly see, let alone think, past them. She loves him. Not you. Again, what reason would Jules have to lie to me about that? They’re best friends. Best friends who likely tell each other everything. Isn’t that what girls do? “I don’t want to hurt like this when I look at you anymore. I’m tired of hating you while not being able to stop thinking about you.” My lips descend into the base of her neck, directly over her pulse that thrums beneath me. My eyes close, and I inhale a silent breath. I’m tired of loving you while not being able to have you. “You don’t hate me, Viola.” “You’re right. I don’t hate you, Jasper. You’re the one who can’t make up his mind.” “What is it you’re looking for from me?” I speak against her skin. “What is it you think I have to give you when you belong to him? You want me to stop hating you? Done. You want me to be nice? I can fucking try. You want me to fuck this thing out of us? I will. Tell me what you want, and I’ll give you anything. Because while you have a million reasons to go, and you’re looking for one to stay other than my daughter, she’s the only reason I can give you to stay when I have a million for you to go.” Her breath hitches, her head falling back as my tongue swipes out, stealing a taste. My hands drop from her hair, sliding along her narrow shoulders, over the top of her chest, down her ribs, my thumbs brushing the sides of her full tits through her shirt as I go. Her body trembles against mine as my hands grasp her waist, my nose gliding up the long column of her neck. My body unable to hold back as I lick and suck and kiss her there. Only there. If I kiss her mouth, there will be no going back.

Several times a week, Charlotte Jones leaves suburbia behind and boards a chartered flight to parts unknown, where she wraps her hands around the necks of marks for just as long as she has to.
Then she goes back to domestic life with a paycheck, defense wounds, and the sense that she can handle anything.
Which is good, because being a wife, mother, and sociopath, with an insatiable taste for murder, gives the term work-life balance new meaning. When one life unexpectedly bleeds into the other, leading to a secret admirer and borderline insta-fame, Charlotte is forced to ask herself if she really can have it all.
Slick and unnerving, Kill, Sleep, Repeat is a cunning tale of deception and desire that begs the question: Do we ever really know people the way we think we do?







Britney King lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, children, two dogs, one ridiculous cat, and a partridge in a pear tree.
When she's not wrangling the things mentioned above, she writes psychological, domestic and romantic thrillers set in suburbia.
Currently, she's writing three series and several standalone novels.
The Bedrock Series features an unlikely heroine who should have known better. Turns out, she didn’t. Thus she finds herself tangled in a messy, dangerous, forbidden love story and face-to-face with a madman hell-bent on revenge. The series has been compared to Fatal Attraction, Single White Female, and Basic Instinct.
The Water Series follows the shady love story of an unconventional married couple—he’s an assassin—she kills for fun. It has been compared to a crazier book version of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Also, Dexter.
Around The Bend is a heart-pounding standalone, which traces the journey of a well-to-do suburban housewife, and her life as it unravels, thanks to the secrets she keeps. If she were the only one with things she wanted to keep hidden, then maybe it wouldn’t have turned out so bad. But she wasn’t.
The With You Series at its core is a deep love story about unlikely friends who travel the world; trying to find themselves, together and apart. Packed with drama and adventure along with a heavy dose of suspense, it has been compared to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Love, Rosie.
The Social Affair is an intense standalone about a timeless couple who find themselves with a secret admirer they hadn’t bargained for. For fans of the anti-heroine and stories told in unorthodox ways, the novel explores what can happen when privacy is traded for convenience. It is reminiscent of films such as One Hour Photo and Play Misty For Me. 
Without a doubt, connecting with readers is the best part of this gig. You can find Britney online here:

Review for The Orphan's Song by Lauren Kate


The Orphan's Song
by 

Hardcover, 336 pages
Published June 25th 2019 by G.P. Putnam's Sons


The historical adult debut novel by # 1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Kate, The Orphan's Song is a sweeping love story about family and music--and the secrets each hold--that follows the intertwined fates of two Venetian orphans.


A song brought them together.
A secret will tear them apart.

Venice, 1736. When fate brings Violetta and Mino together on the roof of the Hospital of the Incurables, they form a connection that will change their lives forever. Both are orphans at the Incurables, dreaming of escape. But when the resident Maestro notices Violetta's voice, she is selected for the Incurables' world famous coro, and must sign an oath never to sing beyond its church doors.

After a declaration of love ends in heartbreak, Mino flees the Incurables in search of his family. Known as the "city of masks," Venice is full of secrets, and Mino is certain one will lead to his long-lost mother. Without him, the walls close in on Violetta and she begins a dangerous and forbidden nightlife, hoping her voice can secure her freedom. But neither finds what they are looking for, until a haunting memory Violetta has suppressed since childhood leads them to a shocking confrontation.

Vibrant with the glamour and beauty of Venice at its zenith, The Orphan's Song takes us on a breathtaking journey of passion, heartbreak, and betrayal before it crescendos to an unforgettable ending, a celebration of the enduring nature and transformative power of love. 

My Thoughts…

The story of two orphans who only want to know what else life has in store for them in the future and dreaming of all that they will see in the world.    Violetta knows no life other than that of singing and working toward being part of the famous coro with the Incurables’.   Mino had a mother, she left him a token, but doesn’t have any real memories of her.  

Lauren Kate wrote a book where stories entwined, characters were pulled together or pushed apart by forces beyond their control, and history was amazing.    I felt like I was walking the streets with Lettie and Mino.  I could see the people they were seeing, feel the air blowing around me, and hear the amazing sounds they were experiencing.    The book came to life as I fell into the world of Venice.

Review for How Quickly She Disappears by Raymond Fleischmann


How Quickly She Disappears
by 


publication: January 14th 2020 by Berkley 

The Dry meets Silence of the Lambs in this intoxicating tale of literary suspense set in the relentless Alaskan landscape about madness and obsession, loneliness and grief, and the ferocious bonds of family …

It’s 1941 in small-town Alaska and Elisabeth Pfautz is alone. She’s living far from home, struggling through an unhappy marriage, and she spends her days tutoring her precocious young daughter. Elisabeth’s twin sister disappeared without a trace twenty years earlier, and Elisabeth’s life has never recovered. Cryptic visions of her sister haunt her dreams, and Elisabeth’s crushing loneliness grows more intense by the day. But through it all, she clings to one belief: That her sister is still alive, and that they’ll be reunited one day.

And that day may be coming soon. Elisabeth’s world is upended when Alfred Seidel — an enigmatic German bush pilot — arrives in town and murders a local man in cold blood. Sitting in his cell in the wake of his crime, Alfred refuses to speak to anyone except for Elisabeth. He has something to tell her: He knows exactly what happened to her long-missing sister, but he’ll reveal this truth only if Elisabeth fulfills three requests.

Increasingly isolated from her neighbors and imprisoned by the bitter cold and her own obsession, Elisabeth lets herself slip deeper into Alfred’s web. A tenuous friendship forms between them, even as Elisabeth struggles to understand Alfred’s game and what he’s after.

But if it means she’ll get answers, she’s willing to play by his rules. She’s ready to sacrifice whatever it takes to be reunited with her sister, even if it means putting herself — and her family — in mortal danger. 

My Thoughts…

I have to say that I struggled through parts of this book.    I wanted to connect with the characters but they seemed so hard, so bitter, and so depressing.   They were living in a place that they didn’t enjoy.   They didn’t enjoy being with each other, they were the outcasts of the town. 

Then Alfred came into the story.    He brought with him twists and turns, had me guessing at what he could give to Elisabeth to make her happy again, and what it would cost her.  I wondered what his connection to Elisabeth’s twin was and if he could really help Elisabeth come to terms with her disappearance.   I didn’t like Alfred at all, I knew he was shady and that whatever he was up to it wasn’t going to end well for anyone involved.    But he was the reason that I kept reading.  

The ending…  oh the ending.   It was nothing I saw coming.   I had no idea how it would end.   Again, I didn’t like it, I didn’t see it coming, but it made sense and I am still not sure if I would have done anything differently if I would have been in Elisabeth’s place.

Paperback Release of The Winters by Lisa Gabriele

In 2018 I was lucky enough to read The Winters.   I was not familiar with Rebecca by Daphne de Maurier at the time but I still picked up the book and fell into a wonderful story with wonderful characters.   I am excited to share that The Winters is now available in paperback.    I'd recommend picking up your own copy and falling into this psychological thriller. 




ABOUT THE BOOK

THE WINTERS: A Novel
By Lisa Gabriele
Penguin Books
On Sale: January 7, 2020
ISBN: 9780525559726
Price: $17.00
Also available as an e-book and audiobook.




On an island in the Caribbean, an unnamed young woman lives a quiet simple life, working for a sailing company and trying to pay her debts. Her world is, in her own words, “unremarkable”—until a dashing older man, a recent widower and wealthy senator named Max Winter, arrives in town and sweeps her off her feet. After a whirlwind romance, she finds herself newly engaged and ensconced in a life of luxury she never could have imagined. But all is not as it seems at Asherley, Max’s opulent Long Island estate, and no amount of glitz and glamour can keep every secret buried, or every ghost quiet.
Inspired by Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca, and imbued with a rich sense of suspense, Lisa Gabriele’s novel, THE WINTERS (Penguin Books, $17.00, On Sale: January 7, 2020), is now available in paperback – and is a page-turner about the seductive trappings of wealth, the dangers of infatuation, and the impossibility of escaping the past.
THE WINTERS takes its cues from both classic manor house novels and contemporary domestic thrillers, but will keep readers guessing as it builds toward an explosive and unpredictable conclusion. A decidedly modern (and unexpectedly feminist) take on a beloved genre, it is a gripping tale about money, power, and status—and the web of lies it takes to keep them.
When she first arrives at Asherley, our humble narrator—an outsider who has never known such fortune—is both impressed and bewildered by her new surroundings. But it soon becomes clear that this is no place for a fresh start, and she is right to be on edge. The house is steeped in the memory of Max’s first wife, Rebekah, whose beauty, breeding, and aura of mystery feed the young woman’s uncertainties and insecurities. Rebekah’s photos adorn the walls, the rooms smell of her favorite flowers, and worst of all, her spiteful teenage daughter Dani is intent on keeping her mother’s memory alive—and torturing her soon-to-be stepmom with it.
As Max and Dani circle each other like cats, pressing buttons and pushing boundaries, their twisted family dynamic, and the hole left by Rebekah’s death, become ever more apparent. Dani refuses to be cowed, and Max’s political ambitions will not be stopped by any woman, dead or alive. Haunted by Rebekah, tormented by Dani, and growing suspicious of her fiancรฉ, the young woman finds herself in a strange and sinister world where she cannot fit in, and may not be able to get out.
THE WINTERS is a sharp and suspenseful read that belongs on every thriller-lover’s bookshelf. Gabriele’s vivid prose brings the affluent Hamptons alive, and skillfully reveals the darkness lurking just beneath the surface and the skeletons in every walk-in closet.

My Thoughts…

I have no clue what Rebecca by Daphne de Maurier is, other than it’s a book that Lisa Gabriele based The Winters on.     That means I came into this story without knowing what the story would entail, where the story would go, and what I was reading.   For me, this was a great thing.   I started the book with an open mind, an excitement for what I was about to read, and an interest in learning whatever I can about the characters.    Lisa Gabriele wrote a story that kept me reading, guessing, and wondering what was going to happen with Max Winters, his fiancรฉ, and his daughter.  

The love story of Max and his fiancรฉ was intriguing.   Instantly I felt there was more to come for them, while I hoped for happiness I knew that it couldn’t be that easy.   There were so many unknowns, so many twists, turns, ups and downs that I was kept on my toes.    I loved that I was kept guessing and that I truly didn’t know what was going to happen until it actually happens.   When Max returned home to the estate that he lived in with his dead wife and his teenage daughter I knew that there had to be more to come.   Dani was a typical teenager as far as not being happy that her father met someone new and did the teenage things to make her not welcome in their lives.    

There was so much anticipation, the story was told little by little, with each dialogue I had to guess what wasn’t being told and what the truth was.    The Winters is a psychological thriller that kept me turning page after page excited to see where this story would go next.

—Bustle

“Creepy, atmospheric. . . Gabriele keeps the tension high up to the surprising and satisfying final twist.”

“A slow tease that builds to a surprising and satisfying climax.”

The Winters is a clever, tense, atmospheric story that kept me gripped throughout. I couldn’t put it down!”
—Jo Jakeman, author of Sticks and Stones

—Katrina Onstad, author of Everybody Has Everything



The Winters is the most spellbinding book I’ve read this year! And certainly the most elegantly written. I loved it. What an exceptional, feminist piece of work.”

Piper and Derek are in for just a little more - after all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love!

My Thoughts…

425 Madison is the perfect place for love.    Just a Little More is the story of Derek and Piper.    They met, started a relationship, and oops… Piper is pregnant.   Both Derek and Piper are not relationship people but when they met each other something changes.   They committed to each other, chose to be faithful to each other, and fell in love with each other.    Pregnancy is not in their plan but sometimes things are out of your control.  

Piper and Derek try to figure out their way to being together, starting a family, and being parents.    That is a lot for anyone.   Together they can do it and Derek knows that.   He seems to be the one who must convince Piper that all will be okay as she freaks about being pregnant, living together, and most of all becoming parents.   I love how sure Derek seems, even though he has his own fears.   He keeps his own fears mostly quiet and uses reasoning to help Piper realize what a blessing their lives really are.  

I liked the Nicole storyline and how it played into the story.   It added just a little twist.    The roommate, Sara, was interesting and I like that she was set up as the ditzy roommate but became the friend that Piper really needed giving out great advice and support at all the right times.

Excerpt
Copyright @ 2020 Allie York 


“It’s going to be okay,” he finally speaks just as we step out into the crisp morning air.
“If you say so.” I realize how terrible I sound and sigh. “I’m sure it’s nothing, so it’ll all be okay.”
“Even if it’s not nothing.” Derek stops us in the middle of the sidewalk and makes me look at him. I nod and he kisses my forehead before we start walking again, still hand in hand. A quiet solidarity for what’s about to unfold. I feel like, at this point, we both know how this is turning out, but I hope like hell that I’m wrong. My brain fills with fog and I walk along with him in a daze. I decide that all the what ifs don’t matter until things are for sure, so I push it all out of my mind. I might be pregnant, and it is definitely Derek’s. I can handle anything no matter what comes my way. I was raised with that thinking, as was Eliza. No matter what life throws at us, we can handle it. If it’s possible to ramble in your inner monologue, I do it, for the entire block to the drug store. Inside I purchase a set of two tests to be safe and the woman gives us a smile that is either pitying or happy, I can’t tell. Derek keeps his hand in mine until we are standing back in front of my apartment door. When he lets me go, I feel a little hollow. I grasp the drug store bag in both hands. 
“Do you want me to go with you?” He doesn’t meet my eyes. 
“To pee?” I ask, cracking a smile. Maybe it’s not a good time to laugh, but I do. 
“I mean inside. I’m not going with you to pee.” Derek finally smiles too.
“Actually, I think I need a minute alone,” I admit. 
“I’ll wait in the living room,” he agrees.
“Okay.” 
“Okay.” He wraps his arms around me, crushing me to his chest, and kisses the top of my head. “You do what you need to do and yell when you need me.” Derek nods matter-of-factly and kisses me. “I… you know how much I care about you, right?” 
“Me too.” I know our conversation makes no sense, but it’s what we have right now.
