Excerpt and/or blurbs to your books
Rhapsody in Red blurb (as a part of the Dark of Midnight box set):

Calix Mabry had everything a vampire could ever want. A mate, eternal life, and enough money to sustain them for the rest of their lives. But when his beloved is taken from him, he vows to bring her back at any cost.
Duplicitous blurb:

It was meant to be an easy job; go to my sister’s and update her security system. But nothing is ever easy, is it?

My sister lives the epitome of the perfect life, but, when her husband announces he’s filing for divorce, I know nothing will ever be the same.

Things begin to spiral out of control, leaving me reeling as I struggle to make sense of what he’s told me. After waking in my sister’s bed, covered in blood, I’m left struggling to piece together the mystery of what happened before I go mad.

Or die trying.

*Delaney Foster

Hi, I’m Delaney, and I write love stories. I love all things romance, a good glass of wine, and Saturdays at the baseball park. I DO believe leggings are pants and pumpkin spice should be a year round thing. In my stories you’ll find sexy, alpha men and the strong women who love them.

*Ellie Masters

Ellie Masters has been exploring the worlds of romance, dark erotica, science fiction, and fantasy, by reading and writing the stories she wants to read.

She lives with her beloved husband, two children who refuse to flee the nest, and four fur-babies; three cats who rule the household, and a dog who wants nothing other than for the cats to be his best friends. The cats are of a different mind regarding this matter.

Ellie’s favorite way to spend an evening is curled up on a couch, laptop in place, watching a fire, drinking a good wine, and bringing forth all the characters from her Mind-to-the-Page and eventually into the hearts of her readers.

I am a happily married mother of three (two boys and one girl). I live in a very small town in Alabama. Never lived anywhere else. I I started self-publishing with the encouragement from my mom. Without her encouragement, I don’t think I would’ve done it. 

I get my inspiration from life experiences, movies, television, other authors, and music. 

I like to write fast-paced, steamy romance reads. I like for my males to be alpha-males and my heroines to be strong, but both need to have one weakness- each other.

RELEASE BLITZTitle: The Predator Part One

Author: Brooke May

Genre: Romance

Release Date: December 13, 2016

 

BLURB

 

I spent most of my life a disappointment, unwanted, and unloved. That is how I knew life to be until a low whistle pulled everything I knew upside down and inside out.
Chamberlain Lawrence was a man any woman would dream of. He was kind, sweet, and saw me for something no one else had ever seen before. Or so I thought. I fell for him hard and fast. I thought what we had was real and could last a lifetime. I thought what we had was a type of fighting love, one of such love we would last forever.
I should have paid closer attention to the signs around me. Chamberlain was too handsome, too charming, and too perfect to ever really want something like forever with a girl like me. Just as fast as I feel for him, I burned up faster. I’m left alone in life again with a broken heart, but a strong will to survive on my own.
No one ever said a Predator could love.

EXCERPT

 

I move around to all the ones who need help with their posture before coming back to the front to do the turn again with them. When we finish, I smile at all of them. “You girls are doing beautifully. I’m so very proud of you.” I praise and turn to the parents who are watching with a warm smile.

My hands still in front of me and my smile vanishes when I lock on a set of eyes that don’t belong to any of the parents.

The dead weight of my arms drops to my sides as Chamberlain’s blue eyes pierce into my soul. No one is paying us any mind as the girls do more turns for their parents. Our gaze is locked, making my mouth and lips go dry. Slowly, I swallow then wet my lips with my tongue. Chamberlain’s arms are braced above his head by the window flexing, and his eyes drop to my mouth as his own opens slightly.

“Miss Cunningham!” One of the girls calls my attention, breaking the spell. It must have done the same for Chamberlain because he quickly shakes his head and stalks off.

Frowning in confusion, I recover and return my focus to my class. “How about a few more turns and then we do our stretches? After that, we will be done.” I smile sweetly at their excitement and get back to work.

After class, I move my things back to the closet and greet the next dance instructor. I button my coat and head to the front of the building. It will feel good to cool down after being in there for four and a half hours.

I’m shuffling for my keys when a voice pulls my head up. “Well, hello there, lil’ bit.” I glance to my right, finding the guy I flipped over my back yesterday.

“My name is K.C.,” I say defensively and then change my tone. I owe him an apology. “I’m sorry for what I did yesterday, you … frightened me.”

He laughs, extending his hand. “Scott, nice to meet you, K.C. And don’t worry about it. Even if it was embarrassing to have a little thing like you throw me over your shoulder, it was a good laugh. No harm.” I nod just as his phone chimes, indicating he has a message. He looks down at it and shakes his head. “It was nice meeting the girl who has my buddy in knots after a quick look and a few words. See ya around, K.C.” He waves and jogs off back into the interior of the center before I can question him.

In knots?

“Yeah, you … too.” I give a weak wave, confused.

What did he mean by that?

Certainly, I’m not the type of girl who could have any man in knots.

For the second time in as many days, I leave the rec center confused. Trying my best to shake it off, I head to the university for my classes.
