Give Me Books Promotions Presents a Cover Reveal for Christmas In Kentbury by Claudia Burgoa

Title: Christmas in Kentbury
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Andie B.
Release Date: December 12, 2018


If practice makes perfect, I should excel at pretending that Heath Miller doesn’t affect me. That I’m immune to that wide jaw, taut body, and the unique woodsy-aftershave-engine-oil scent that makes my ovaries explode.

Since before I could walk, he’s been my champion. My best friend. The one problem I can’t solve. Why? If I tell him I love him, I’ll lose him and his adorable daughter. Maybe the best Christmas gift I can give him—and myself—is to turn in the keys to my B&B and put some distance between us.

I’ve made my share of mistakes. Lost my MIT scholarship, came home to fix cars and romance Kentbury’s female tourists—until I wound up a single father. For all eight years of Cassie’s life, Knightly’s been my anchor.

I’ve changed. Cassie’s the best part of me, and Knightly’s been there every step of the way. But as Christmas lays its mantle of magic over Kentbury, she drops a bomb—she’s following a dream to New York City. I’ve got one week to do everything, say everything I’ve never dared. To convince my best friend to be mine—ours—for all the holidays to come.

I hate surprises almost as much as I hate Sunday brunch at my parents. My family and I don’t get along. It’s a cliché, but we’re like water and oil. I became everything they hate and I hate everything they represent. My parents are judgmental. During my late teens and up until a few months ago, I fucked around—a lot—in every sense.
Needless to say, I lost my scholarship to MIT during my sophomore year. The dean called me irresponsible. My parents wrote me off as a failure until I came back to Kentbury to take over my uncle’s car repair shop after he died. I try to keep myself out of trouble and off the town’s radar. I steer away from the women in town. But I do have fun with the tourists who stay at the lodge. It’s simple. They’re here for a week or a weekend. Then they’re gone for good.
“But I ran out of luck,” I sigh and look down.
In the bouncy chair lies Cassie, my one-month-old baby. The fuss of black hair is covered by a pink hat. Her arms aloft as if dreaming of cuddling her mother. I slide my pinky into her open hand and watch as her fingers curl around it. I feel her soft breath on the back of my hand. Already the tension is melting away as I watch my sweet little girl sleep in peace. She’s so innocent, she doesn’t know that our lives have been forever changed again.
“Maybe I just got lucky,” I whisper close to her ear. “You and I are going to make it work. I’ll make your proud little one.”
There’s a slight knock on the door. I kiss her tiny hand before I open it for Knightly.
“That must be, Knightly, coming to save the day,” I whisper to Cassie and kiss her tiny hand.
There’s so much I could tell her about my best friend, but not enough time. I only tell Cassie what’s important, “She’s going to become your favorite person. We call her Lee for short.”
When I swing the door open, I finally relax. Lee’s here.
Her big brown eyes narrow locking her gaze at me. “I need a big explanation,” she says handing me the shopping bags she carries with her.
“Hello, Lee,” I greet her and stare at all the bags she brought as she unzips her blue parka.
“I got everything that you asked for,” she says. Bishop is bringing the big items. What do you need that for?”
Her voice is neutral, but I know her well. She’s easy to read. The expression on her face matches her mood. I know when she’s excited about something. I can tell when she’s tired or cranky. Or, like right now, when she’s upset that I’m keeping her in the dark. As she takes off all her winter gear and sets her snow boots on the plastic tray, I close the door avoiding the sight of her body.
I like to think of Lee Harris as my best friend. One of the boys. She’s the kid who I hung out with since she could walk. I endless practice not noticing her sweet curves or the way her long, dark, curly hair cascades over her shoulders once she takes off her hat. I’m a shitty person and can’t do relationships. I’d never do anything to jeopardize my relationship with Lee. Ever.
I tilt my head toward the living room. “Follow me.”
“Oh my God, did Santa bring me a baby?” She claps once and takes out the tube of hand sanitizer that she always carries around.
Without asking, she snaps the belt of the bouncy chair open and takes her into her arms.
“Hey, beautiful, welcome to Kentbury. You’re going to love this place.”
Cassie snuggles closer to Lee who looks beautiful holding my baby. I swallow hard and remind myself that she’s a friend who deserves a lot more than a guy who sucks at life.
“You’re not going to ask anything?”
“The mom came to the lodge earlier, asking for you.” She sweeps my body with her gaze. “Tall, dark hair, light blue eyes and was friends with the Lodge’s owner.”
Lee rolls her eyes and sighs.
“You and Kingston need to stop sleeping around or…” Lee touches her mouth lightly with the tips of her fingers. “Oops, it happened.”
“You could’ve warned me.” I grit my teeth.
“I could’ve.” She shrugs. “Maybe next time.”
I glare at her. She’s not funny but I don’t have the energy to deal with her banter. Though, maybe she doesn’t have much energy either because she’s not as witty as usual.  
“How are you handling the news?” She asks with a serious tone, though her gaze remains on Cassie.
“I’m dealing, I guess,” I close my eyes briefly taking a deep breath. “Can you picture me as a father?”
I gesture to myself, showing her the hot mess that I am. Then, point to the apartment I live in which is above the car shop.
“I’m a fucked-up guy who can’t finish anything. I can’t even get along with my parents. What am I supposed to do with a baby?”
“Love her,” she answers.
“You should give yourself some credit, Heath. She has the best dad in the world, and you two have me and my family.”
I smile at her and say the obvious, “I can always count on you.”
Lee studies Cassie. She smiles at her, but her face looks a little saddened. Her brown eyes are slightly red and watery. Was she crying? I’m sure it’s nothing. Later, when I’m not busy with my baby I’ll ask her what’s wrong. In the meantime, I have to learn how to be a dad.
Maybe I can find a book on how to be a father online. It worked with the car shop, and so far, I’ve managed it well enough.

The thought of Jaime moving to Los Angeles both unnerved and thrilled me. “Won’t you be lonely living all the way out here in a big house all by yourself?”

He remained silent for a long time, staring out to the Pacific. Then, without warning, he spun me around so that we were face-to-face, just a breath apart. He lifted his sunglasses on top of his head, and his eyes, the color of the late afternoon sea, gazed deep into mine. My heart hammered as he tipped up my chin.

“I don’t plan on living here alone. I’m tired of living in a hotel where people come and go. I’m looking for someone special to share my life with…and I may have found her.”

My heart pounded. My voice abandoned me. Words were trapped in my throat.

“Gloria, I’ve never had a relationship before. I’ve fucked a lot of women, but none of them has meant a thing to me. They’re just mindless, faceless fucks. You’re different, angel. I can never get your face out of my head. When I’m away from you, all I want is to be with you. And when I’m with you, I can’t get enough of you.

 I want to breathe the air you breathe and kiss the ground you walk on. I want to go to sleep with you in my arms and wake up to you on my chest. And I want to fuck you every way I know how. Make you fall apart and then put you back together. Over and over. There will never be enough ways to show you how I feel about you. Or words to tell you.”
He paused and inhaled deeply. My blood was ringing in my ears as he exhaled and softly said, “Gloria, you make me fall apart too.”

This was all too much for me. My emotions were in turmoil, and my mind was in meltdown. I gripped his shoulders before my knees gave out. Tears were forming in my eyes… and at last words. “Jaime, are you saying you want a real relationship with me?” You love me?

He nervously played with my braid. “Yeah, angel, that’s what I’m trying to say. I guess it’s not my best pitch. I don’t do relationships well.”

I quirked a little smile. “Neither do I.”
He looked straight into my eyes. “Do you want to give it a try?”

My fingers toyed with his toi et moi ring. “An official you and me?”

My mind was spinning and my heart was thudding. Jesus Christ. Was I ready for a relationship with this beautiful, romantic, sexy god? Could I handle it? The timing couldn’t be worse with the stock crisis and my job at stake. It might work. It might not. And there was still the long distance factor to deal with. Skyping sex did not make for a relationship. 

Was I just setting myself up to get hurt? He had a fucked a lot of women. And I was just one of them. I mean, he hadn’t said he loved me. And hell, I’d only known him for a little over a week though it felt like a lifetime.

Jaime’s sultry voice brought my mental ramblings to a halt. He tugged on my braid. “Come on, angel. The suspense is fucking killing me.”

If only I could consult Madame Paulette. I pondered—what would she say? Her husky voice sounded in my head. “Ma chérie, no risque no gain…It eez better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” Her last words to me whirled around my head. 

Come on, who was I fooling? I was madly in love with this man. I wanted him more than he wanted me. I had to take a chance, regardless of the consequences.

“Yes,” I finally breathed. “But there’s got to be rules. Like—”
Cupping my face, he cut me off. “Gloria, there’s only one rule. Don’t ever leave me. The rest are meant to be broken.” On the loud crash of a wave, his lips crashed onto mine. 

Every part of me melted into him as he wrapped me in his arms and claimed my mouth with his. Oh, the power of a kiss! The power of this man! Nothing else existed. Our tongues twirled and swirled, dancing in unison to the music of the sea. His hard body pressed into mine, arousing every erotic fiber of my being.

Once Upon An Alpha Presents a Release for Destroy Me (Southern Nights: Enigma 3) by Ella Sheridan

Some mistakes don’t deserve forgiveness. Lyse Sheppard planted the bomb that almost killed everyone close to her, including the man she loved. Now in hiding, she spends her days making amends the only way she knows how—using her genius computer skills to save women enslaved by the bastard who blackmailed her. And every night she punishes herself by watching the man she lost live his life without her. Fionn “Irish” McCullough can’t let go of the rage Lyse ignited the night she betrayed his team. Betrayed him. After months of searching, he’s no closer to finding his prey—until a mysterious message points him toward Ireland and a deadly threat against the only family he has left. Caught in the twisted web of his past, Fionn must choose between revenge and keeping his mother safe. But the one weapon he needs—and the one touch he craves—may be the woman he can never forgive.

Writing has been my passion since childhood, but like many writers, life got in the way. After earning a BA in English Literature, I married and started a family. But the worlds and characters that swirled through my mind just wouldn’t go away, and at a particularly difficult time in my life, I picked up pen and paper (or laptop) and tried to release some of that difficulty onto the page. I’ve been writing ever since. Now I’m a member of Romance Writers of America, run an accountability blog to help writers reach their goals, and am pursuing publication with the same passion I feel for writing. Nothing pleases me more than sharing the stories of my heart with you, the reader, and I hope, in some small way, these stories will touch your heart too.

“Come in!” I yell, rinsing the coffee cup out, turning around to find him behind me. His dark hair is curling out from below the baseball hat he has on, and his black T-shirt hugs his arms and chest in all the right ways. And don’t even get me started on those damn Wranglers. Worn and tight. Looking up, his blue eyes are filled with laughter and I know I’ve been caught.

“Morning,” he greets, and I can’t help myself. Laughing, I rush over and give him a hug, burying my face into his chest, the smell of his cologne heaven.

“Where’d you go?” I ask, pulling away from him. He brushes my wet hair off my face, his fingers playing with the strands.

“Went home to shower. Wasn’t sure how you’d feel about me using yours and I didn’t want to wake you up to ask.”

My eyebrows raise in surprise. “Are you even real?”

Garret starts cracking up, then kisses the top of my head before stepping past me to toss a bag on the counter. “Of course I’m real.”

“I don’t think you are. You’re like, a book boyfriend come to life.”

“A what?” He laughs even harder.

“A book boyfriend. You know, the hero in romance novels who is all swoony, and alpha, and perfect? He always gets the girl because he’s this amazing guy who knows all the right things to say and do. He’s just the definition of a romantic boyfriend.”

Garret crosses his arms over his chest and leans against the kitchen counter. “So, what you’re telling me is, is I’m perfect?”

“Only if you take me out for breakfast,” I chide, resting my hands on my hips.

“Now that I can definitely do.”

Title: Dirty Sin
Series: Dirty Justice #3
Author: N. E. Henderson
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 25, 2018



His name brings bile to my throat. Not because he ordered the hit on my life. The man makes me sick, makes fire course through my veins for all the damage he’s done to Drago—his son, my love, the father of my children.

Sins may be committed in the name of justice—because I will save my future husband. I will save my family from the devil they share DNA with. And I will save my badge from the disgrace placed upon it.

In the end, he will know he crossed the wrong woman. I will bring that man to his knees if it’s the last thing I do.

“I’m coming for you.”

This book really rocked my world! I needed answers and I got them with this story. There is so much that has happened to Drago and Brianna and all at the hands of Drago's father. He needs to be stopped and in this story we get to see him fall face first to the ground and get what he has coming to him.

I was sitting at the edge of the bed reading this thinking oh lord is it ever going to end because it seemed liked things were going to go one way and then they went another way and that had me at the edge of my seat thinking oh lordy where are they going with this but N.E. never ceases to amaze me and she brought her A++++ game on in Dirty Sin.

We finally go to see who Drago and Brianna really are and what their families are like. I loved that all the plot twists and turns were resolved and we got every question answered. Plus we got to see a side of Drago that was completely surprising. I love Drago and Brianna as a couple and they had to fight like hell but they got to where they needed to be.

I have no idea where to start with this review. I have started and stopped this review at least five times. At first I was on the fence reading the book but I got about 30% in and started to figure things out and started to like the book. I loved the main character Drago. He is one cold hearted bastard and he was off the chain with his actions and behaviors. I laughed at times and then I was like damn cold he be any more heartless.

Brianna I will say had balls of steel to do what she did and take on what she took on. She has the task of taking out a monster but what if that monster is closer than you think? What if he is someone you care for? Man she had to make decisions and choices I would not have wanted to make.

There is lot's of action and suspense in this story that will have you like a rollercoaster wondering where the ride is going to take you. Oh and N.E. that ending just cold blooded had me screaming at my kindle WTF is that........


Now free in Kindle Unlimited

Holy Baby Jesus this book started right where Dirty Blue ended and I was so excited to see what the hell was going on. When I finished the first book I was like WTF with that huge cliffhanger but I was excited to see where this story was going and holy hell I was not disappointed.

I will not ruin this book by saying any spoils but I will say this holy mind eff and twists and turns man I did not know what was going down because so much was happening all at once. Plus Drago I was a little mad at him in this book because he was being a real arse and his behavior was off the chain. He needs to do some serious recon if he thinks Brianna is going to tolerate that mess.

This is a must must read series and I need the third book because yes I will say it again N.E. WTF with that cliffhanger of an ending I mean it was worse than the first book. I was screaming at my kindle and crying because man shizz went down and it was crazy as hell.
