The Red Lily by Juliette Cross

About the book:

When Red falls for the Big Bad Vampire…

The Black Lily resistance needs a larger army if they are to defeat the vampire monarchy. In order to do so, former lieutenant and traitor to the vampire Crown, Nikolai must seek help from the red-hooded temptress he needs to avoid at all costs. The secret he carries could prove dangerous for her if she gets too close…even though keeping her close—very close—is the only thing on his mind.

Sienna will do anything for the Black Lily, and when Nikolai asks for her assistance to gain the trust of the commonwealth, it’s the last thing she wants to do. The thought of leaving her woods and her wolves behind is terrifying…not to mention the danger being with Nikolai poses.

Pre-order Drakon's Plunder!


Drakon’s Plunder, book 3 of the Blood of the Drakon series, is now up for pre-order!

Life is not going well for archaeologist Sam Bellamy. She’s stuck in the middle of the ocean on a salvage boat with people who want her dead. It wasn’t her gift for being able to sense objects of power that got her here, rather her need to make a secret society called the Knights of the Dragon pay for killing her mentor. Sam doesn’t believe in dragons, but the Knights do, and if she can get one of the sacred artifacts they’re searching for away from them, she’ll consider it payback.
        
Ezra Easton is content to run his marine salvage company and live alone on his private island. He may be a four-thousand-year-old water drakon, but he’s civilized enough to know just because he pulls an injured woman from the ocean, doesn’t mean he gets to keep her...

When she wakes up, she has a few tall tales to share, and it seems the Knights are after her. But this drakon won’t give up his treasure.
 
Available July 3rd!

A Second Chance at Love






Do you believe in second chances at love? I do.

BLUE COLLAR--A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology


Available today!

BLURB

When it comes to love...Blue Collar is better! 
 
It's time to set aside those sexy billionaires and enjoy stories about the everyday, even sexier bad boys you meet in real life. They may have dirty hands and wear tool belts and jeans instead of Rolex watches, but they're earthy alpha males unafraid to get down and dirty when face to face with a woman in need--whatever her need may be! 
 
Just a few of the titillating stories inside... 
 
In "Elevation" by Megan Mitcham, an always-in-control policewoman trapped in an elevator shaft gets a sexy rescue from the handsome repairman. A lonely woman drives a thousand miles to meet an oil field roughneck ready for a long night of laying pipe in Mia Hopkins' "We Drill Deep While Others Sleep". Jennifer Kacey shows the lengths to which an enterprising gal will go to get the owner of an oil change shop to check her fluids in "The Boss". And those are just a few of the sexy stories inside this collection about the everyday hero next door. 
 
These are men who've built their powerful muscles from hard work rather than inside any gym, and they sure know how to use their hard-earned skills to pleasure a woman...

Weekend Book Club--The Black Lily by Juliette Cross

This week I read THE BLACK LILY by Juliette Cross. This really is the story of Cinderella as you've never heard it before.

Arabelle goes to the ball. Her plan? To kill the prince and start a revolution.

This is fairy tale retelling and vampire fiction with a twist.

(And for a very limited time, it's on sale. As of the time of posting, this book is 99-cents. Get it before the price goes back up.)

BLURB:

With the threat of the vampire monarchy becoming stronger every day, the Black Lily must take drastic measures. As the leader of the underground resistance, Arabelle concocts the perfect idea to gain the attention of the Glass Tower. Her plan? Attend the vampire prince’s blood ball and kill him. Fortunately for Prince Marius, her assassination goes awry, and Arabelle flees, leaving behind only her dagger.

Marius is desperate to find the woman whose kiss turned into attempted murder, hunting for the mysterious assassin he can’t push out of his mind. But what he uncovers could change the course of his life forever...

Kate Hill--Grit

This week the Writer Wednesday feature is actually on Saturday. :) Please welcome Kate Hill, who is sharing the blurb and an excerpt from Grit, Fangs and Fists 2. ~NJ


Fangs and Fists 2: Grit

by Kate Hill

An erotic paranormal romance from Changeling Press.

Blurb:

Werewolf gladiator Grit faced his own mortality in the arena, only to be resurrected by a demon. Grit now lives a shadowy existence as one of the soulless, remembering only bits and pieces of his former life. Nonetheless, he recognizes evil and knows he must fight for the future of his young son, as well as the rest of the world.

Zari, a vampire warrior, helped Grit escape the tower where he had been imprisoned. She had feelings for Grit when they'd first met, but at the time he had been mated to another wolf. Now that he's on his own, they're free to explore their feelings as they fight side by side as part of the rebellion against the demons. In the midst of war, their love grows, but danger is everywhere.

Haylen, the demon who resurrected Grit, offers a bargain that may save or destroy the rebellion. Whatever the outcome, Zari and Grit intend to face it together and explore the once forbidden passion between them.

Excerpt:

A moment later, Grit stood behind her--so close that his body shielded her from the cutting wind.

"I've offended you," he said.

"No." She turned and glanced at him with a half smile. "It takes a lot to offend me."

He stared into her dark, fathomless eyes and experienced unfamiliar sensations, though welcome ones. His heartbeat quickened and a heady feeling--almost like when he'd first awakened--nearly overcame him.

"Is something wrong?" she asked.

He shook his head and lifted a hand to her cheek, though he dared not touch her flesh. She was a living woman, one with a soul. He knew that many humans, ignorant of magical species, believed vampires and even werewolves lacked souls, but that wasn't true. Grit had a soul once and lately he had a spark of hope that he would one day reclaim it.

His hand still hovered close to her face. He was about to lower it when she leaned her cheek into his palm. Drawing a deep breath, Grit ever so gently caressed her smooth skin, careful to avoid scratching her with his steel claws.

"You're beautiful," he said.

"And I think you're a little lonely." She reached up and took his hand.

"I don't expect you to want me."

"I never--"

"I'm tainted. Used. "

"Join the club. No one is perfect."

"But I'm the only among you who is soulless."
