A tortured soul meets a damaged family…
A lonely man, a widowed woman, a carefree boy, and a broken girl… Can the four come together and help heal each other? Or will fear of the unknown and guilt of the past keep them apart?
Her whispered prayers break her…
At night, as she’s drifting off to sleep, I press my ear to the door and listen to her heart-wrenching pleas. Her words are agony to my healing heart, but I cherish the sound of them, for that’s the only time I ever hear my beautiful daughter speak. Since her father died two years ago, she’s grown quiet and withdrawn. Cat’s Valley was to be our new beginning, a place where my family and I can heal, but what we find there is so much more.
Scars mar his body. Pain has left him in pieces…
Four years ago, I lost the two things I cherished most in the world. They were ripped from my arms in the most painful and cruel way. Since then, I’ve kept to myself, preferring to stay away from the pitying looks and murmured rumors. Everything changed when she and her children barged into my life. It was an accident, and I don’t deserve them, but now that they’ve stepped into my life, I’m not sure I can let them go.
*This book is intended for mature audiences, ages 18+. It may be enjoyed as a standalone!
Exclusive excerpt from the pages of Whispered Prayers of a Girl:
“I don’t deserve you. I don’t deserve whatever could happen between us.” I want to object, but he continues before I get a chance. “But there’s something I want more than my self-loathing for wanting something I shouldn’t.”
“What?” I rasp.
“A chance to know what it feels like to kiss you.”

About Good Lies:
Releasing May 8th, 2017
If Warren Price was gasoline, I’d be a lit match.
Addison Wanks, rock ’n’ roll’s favorite daughter, is good at keeping secrets.
She’s responsible for the long-standing feud between her father’s band, Wanks and Janks, and younger band Wild Minds. She may or may not have let Wild Minds’ sexy bad-boy lead singer Warren defile her backstage at a concert. Okay, she totally did.
She’s supposed to be attending college but instead skips town to follow Wild Minds on their European tour. Addy adores Warren Price.
Europe doesn’t go so well. Her sexy lead singer turned out to be king of a**holes. He’s arrogant, demanding and controlling. Addy loathes Warren Price. Oh, well.
Fast forward a few years and Addy is planning to attend her father’s farewell tour when she hears the news—Wild Minds is back in the good graces of Wanks and Janks. The two bands will be headlining together. This is going to make avoiding Warren difficult. Especially since it seems Warren doesn’t want to be ignored. He also doesn’t want a divorce. That’s right, Addy is married to the Wild Minds front man. Shh. Don’t tell.
What will happen when all Addy’s secrets are revealed?

My phone chirped with an incoming text. I smiled at Pete, Officer Daniels, and held up the phone. “I’ll just be a minute. It’s probably Billy.”
Pete let go of the restaurant door he’d been holding open for me. “He still mad you didn’t let him come for graduation?” After spending the summer with Pete’s family, I’d decided to stay for my senior year, a decision my father didn’t understand and still wasn’t happy about.
“I think he’s coming around,” I said. Billy had wanted to attend to my high-school graduation. But the thought of my famous father in small town Beaverton, Oregon near all my friends figuratively made me break out in hives.
Pete nodded. “All right, but don’t take too long. We’re excited to celebrate with you.”
“Got it.” I smiled brightly. My gown fluttered in the early summer wind, I’d left my cap in the car. “Tell Gabe to save me a seat next to him.” Pete and Mel’s son Gabe had graduated with me and was set for a full-ride football scholarship to OSU. As for me, I’d be off to New York in a few weeks to attend college. Strolling the sidewalk, I peeked at my phone. It wasn’t my father.
Mystery number: Hi.
Me: Hi. Who’s this?
Mystery number: Warren Price. Remember me?
If it’s possible for your heart to fall straight out of your chest, mine did.
Me: Yeah. How’d you get my number?
Warren: I know people who know people.
Warren: It’s the digital age, babe. Not hard to find someone’s phone number. The right YouTube video and I could give myself a vasectomy.
Me: Would you really do that?
Me: Give yourself a vasectomy?
Warren: Hell, no. But I could.
Warren: You still there?
Me: It’s been a long time.
Warren: Sorry about that. Been thinking about you, though.
Me: I don’t think this is a good idea, you and me talking. Billy doesn’t want us to be friends.
Warren: I disagree. I think this is the best idea I’ve ever had. Besides, last time I checked we were a little more than friends. What you been up to?
Me: In a nutshell? Billy sent me away to live in BFE. Since then… Went to school dances. Drank my first bottle of peach schnapps. Saw Twilight four times.
Warren: Damn. That’s a lot of living for a small town.
Me: I know. Mind blown, right? How about you, what have you been up to?
Warren: Got booted from Billy’s celestial limelight just like you, working the dive bar circuit again.
Me: Ouch. Sorry.
Warren: Not your fault.
Warren: Shit. Got to go. About to the take the stage at a honkey-tonk in Nashville. This should be interesting. We don’t play country.
Me: All right.
Warren: Okay if I text you again?
Me: Thumbs up.
Warren: Did you just text me the words: thumbs up?
Me: Yep. My emoji button is broken. Sad face.
Warren: Okay then.

Rock Steady by Dawn Ryder
Series: Rock Band, Book 2
Release Date: June 7, 2016
Genre: Erotic Romance
About the Book
Second in Dawn Ryder’s sizzling new Rock Band series.
HE KEPT IT CASUAL
Superstar guitarist Ramsey’s reputation as a bad-boy rocker is exceeded only by his dedication to his music. He’s worked hard for the success of his hit metal band Toxsin, and he intends to enjoy it—completely. When a jilted groupie gets back at him for a one-night stand with an intimate—and completely inappropriate—tattoo, he needs it fixed, and fast. Sparks fly between Ramsey and his new tattoo artist, and Ramsey finds himself hoping for more than new ink.
UNTIL SHE MADE HIM WANT MORE
When a high-profile tattoo job lands Jewel an invite on Toxsin’s latest tour, she can’t say no. It’ll be great exposure, after all. What she’s really worried about is ruining the gig by hooking up with the first guy to completely rock her world. She knows she should resist—Ramsey’s not the kind to stick around for a morning after. But the way he makes her feel—as an artist and a woman—could be worth any risk.

Letter from Dawn
That word brings a ripple of anticipation to everyone who has been longing for warm weather, sandals, beaches, carnivals, and so much more. Rock Steady is the perfect summer time read. It’s hot, it’s edgy, it’s got bad boys—hey, what would summer nights be without a little misbehavior? And the one thing I really wanted Rock Steady to have was a lack of people shooting at people.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to write a hard suspense plot but sometimes, you want to read a good, hot, romance without all the life and death struggle. All the edge, all the heat, but with a focus on the personal issues that come with having to make a relationship work beyond the physical attraction.
Rock Steady will take you back onto the road with Toxsin. Now for anyone who thinks Rock Stars have it all easy, take a look at Rock Steady and you’ll get a little taste of the dedication it takes to be a mega super star. Personally, I have a deep respect for those who can apply their talent to the concert stage. It’s a hard job, one that requires team work to accomplish a show that is mind blowing for the ticket holders. A fabulous voice isn’t the only requirement.
For those who picked up Rock Me Two Times, you going to get the chance to see Ramsey, god that he is, meet his match. It was a blast to write this book and I’m eager to present it to all of you.
Excerpt from ROCK STEADY
“Pissed off your girlfriend?” she asked pointedly.
“She wasn’t really a girlfriend.”
Jewel clicked her tongue and looked back at the cheery blossoms. “By the look of that, she disagreed with you on the topic. She must have taken you to Spike Collar.”
Taz was typing into his cell phone as she spoke. “Makes sense. You surfaced right around where that tattoo parlor is on the map.”
“Just don’t go back there,” Jewel warned as she went behind the counter and pulled a blank sheet of paper in front of her.
“Why not?” the blond asked. “I’ve got half a mind to have my lawyer pay them a visit.”
Jewel didn’t look up from what she was drawing. “Won’t do you any good. They never touch a client without a release of liability signed and sealed, with video footage to back it up. Whoever was gunning for you did her homework. The gals at Spike Collar don’t like guys, and they really don’t like any males who try to charm them.” Jewel cast a look at Ramsey. “You are exactly the sort they hate. Bet they popped a bottle of champagne the second you cleared the doorway with that little gem.”
Taz made a low sound under his breath.
But Ramsey was watching her. She felt his attention tightening, focusing on the motion of her pen as she inked a design on the paper. He’d sent a shiver down her spine before, but now he was warming her insides, melting her core slowly with the absolute devotion he was giving her. She looked up, locking gazes with him.
Her insides churned.
And her toes curled.
She’d never felt so connected to another soul. It was his doing, and she realized that his arrogance was something he’d earned.
That fact slapped her across the face and sent her into a full meltdown. He was the sort who could captivate.
Which was a damned dangerous place to go.
It wasn’t like she had any personal experience with it. Still, she felt like she was on pins and needles. The sheer level of sensitivity the guy was able to elicit from her was off the scale. It was fascinating to say the least.
As well as a really bad place to go when he looked like he could afford to hire her.
She looked back at her work, forcing herself to focus on the art and get a grip on herself before he knocked her flat. Sweat popped out on her forehead, but her hands responded perfectly. Art was like a living force inside her. A place she could take refuge in as well as being a gift she might share. She let it consume her, the drawing coming to life beneath the strokes of her pen. It was a little like giving birth: first she had to let it grow and form before it was ready to breathe.
“That is smokin’ hot,” Taz said as he leaned on the counter to peer at her work.
“You’re good,” the blond said in a tone full of awe.
Ramsey reserved judgment until she’d shaded in the last few areas on her sketch. When she lifted her pen, he swept it up and studied the drawing. It was a metal dragon crawling down his abdomen toward his cock. Its front claws would be where the cherry blossoms were, and its tail would wrap around his lean hip and onto his lower back. It wasn’t a reptilian dragon. It was a steel one, a merging of metal and mythical creature.
His eyes narrowed as he studied it, seeing more than just the black lines. He was seeing the attitude she’d tried to capture and portray. His expression gave her a hint of the man inside him. She got the impression he spent a lot of time covering up that man with his didn’t-give-a-rat’s-ass attitude.
But she saw it.
His attention shifted to her, their gazes locking over the edge of the paper. For a moment, she caught a flicker of understanding in his eyes. Just a moment of awareness, a few seconds when he admitted to himself that she saw him.
Really saw him.
It didn’t last long. In fact, she found herself questioning if it had really been there, when his gaze hardened and sealed her out of that place he was determined to keep private.
“You recognize me,” he said.
It wasn’t a question, but she felt inclined to answer anyway. “It isn’t hard to peg you for a metal-head when you’re wearing nothing but leather and have a stud bar through your nipple.”
“I’m a metal god,” he said.
“Right,” she countered, feeling a rise of heat in her cheeks. “I’m good at what I do.”
“You are,” the blond interrupted. He was studying her portfolio. “So why are you working the graveyard shift?”
“I wanted to work at the best shop in town. That left me to choose between Spike Collar and here,” Jewel said without hesitation.
“But you’re not a lesbian,” Ramsey finished for her. “Bet that was a bit of a problem with getting hired over at Spike Collar.”
“Definite ripple in the pond,” she confirmed. “Not on my side, mind you. They just don’t like straight girls. Shame really, they know how to do tats.”
“So do you.” Ramsey was thumbing through the pictures of her work. He had that businessman expression.
“Who are you?” she gave in and asked. All three men looked up at her. “I mean, since it sounded like you were trying to impress me.”
“Impressing you will involve more than my name,” her client said.
His lips curved, and his expression became sensual. He flattened his hand on the counter between them and leaned toward her. In one flat second, it felt like her breath caught in her lungs. She was hyperaware of him, fighting not to take a step back. There was a flicker of approval in his dark eyes as she managed to stand her ground.
“Count on that fact.” Her voice had turned raspy, but his arrogance was rubbing her pride raw. “I do tats. Only tat’s for pay. So if you’ve got a problem understanding boundaries, the door is behind you. There’s another place up a couple of blocks that opens in a few hours.”
Taz reached over and shoved Ramsey. “I told you not to piss her off.” He shook his smart phone in the air between them. “She’s the best in the nearest three cities—checked her out.” He turned to look at her. “Your references rock. Why are you working in this dump?”
“Because my boss might be a prick, but he’s also got twenty-five years’ experience, and references to top mine. I want to learn from the best, and there are a few things you can’t learn from anyone but a master.”
Taz nodded. “True, even if some masters are egomaniacs.”
“You didn’t answer me.” Jewel aimed her inquiry at Ramsey. “Who are you?”
“Ramsey, Taz, and I’m Syon,” the blond answered. “We’re members of a band called Toxsin.”
She bit back the snide, Yeah, right, that tried to escape her lips.
But they were all standing there looking pretty confident. She reached over and tapped “Toxsin” into the laptop on the countertop. Their website was the first thing to come up. She clicked on the link.
“What the fuck are you doing roaming the streets?” She looked between the screen and the three guys standing in front of her. It was weird, to say the least, to have the pictures from the screen living and breathing in her shop. “Don’t you have people to deal with stuff like this?”
Ramsey eyed her from where he was lying on the counter. “I’m a hands-on sort.” He covered her hand with his, stroking the back of it.
Jewel ended up taking that step back. Victory flashed through his eyes as she sent him a sharp look.
Taz punched him in the shoulder again.
“How’s that ‘hands-on’ thing working for you tonight?” Jewel said. It was a barbed comment, a challenge. Hell, it felt like she’d smacked him across the jaw with a white glove and dropped it at his feet.
The way his eyes narrowed confirmed he felt the same way. For one split second, she half feared he might just flip the counter out of the way or jump over it.
“Let’s focus on the problem,” Syon said. “We need this fixed—discreetly, quickly.”
“No joke.” Jewel happily changed thought tracks. She pulled one of the shop disclosure agreements up onto the counter. The tightly packed lines of legal mumbo jumbo didn’t give her the same sense of comfort they normally did. Ramsey grabbed it and yanked the top off a pen before boldly scrawling his signature across the bottom line.
Taz was flipping the lock on the front door.
“Good idea,” Jewel agreed. She didn’t care for the fact that she had to take a breath before getting her feet to move.
Ramsey flopped down on her worktable, popping his pants open. They were custom, all right, the right side of them shaped perfectly to contain his cock.
The guy had an impressive package.
She ended up stopping halfway around the counter, earning a smirk from him.
“Don’t let my fame make you nervous,” Ramsey teased her.
“Typically, I worry about my clients taking their displeasure out on my hide.” She made it to her stool and sat down. Her workstation was normally the place she felt most comfortable.
Today, she felt like the padded stool was full of spikes.
“So what’s your problem with me?” Ramsey asked.
She wasn’t going to answer that.
Not a chance.
She turned half away from him and sterilized her hands.
“Cat got your tongue?” he asked.
Jewel turned back toward him and swallowed the lump that had formed in her throat.
What a man animal.
She really needed to get a grip and enjoy the moment. She was pretty sure she was never going to get the chance to work on so fine a specimen again.
“I’m thinking you wouldn’t think twice about filing a lawsuit against me, signature on a release form or not,” she said.
His expression turned serious , his eyes narrowing, his lips thinning. “I don’t get my kicks out of using my money to pin my mistakes on other people. I own my fuckups.”
It wasn’t what she’d expected him to say.
But she liked it.
A whole lot.
Integrity was something most people sold out on. Especially when it came to admitting they’d made dumb mistakes.
“I’m beginning to see why the gals at Spike didn’t refuse to do your girlfriend’s dirty work.”
Ramsey leaned his head back. “She wasn’t my girlfriend.”
“I’m guessing that was the problem.”
He’d closed his eyes but opened them and looked at her. “Guess it was. But I didn’t lie to her.”
He really did own his screw-ups. It was there in the flat acceptance on his face. He looked past her to his bandmates. “I’m good. You guys can shove off.”
“Not a chance.” Syon settled himself on the other worktable. “Those little pink flowers will take us all down.”
“Yeah.” Taz sat down behind the counter and claimed her laptop. “Besides, I don’t trust you to be polite. Jewel is a lady.”
Ramsey made a low sound under his breath. “I bet she gets naughty with the right company.”
Jewel didn’t look up from where she was cleaning the skin on his abdomen. She was no stranger to personal jabs, especially off-color ones.
What surprised her was the way her pulse leapt.
She needed to get a grip.
“That’s what I’m talking about,” Taz said. “She’s an artist, like Kate.”
“Yeah,” Ramsey agreed. “Sorry, I’m still a little buzzed. Talking out of my ass.”
Jewel warmed under the single word of praise. She got the impression Ramsey didn’t hand out undeserving compliments. She ended up looking into his eyes because he was watching her.
“Kate made my pants.” He gestured at his buddies. “She makes all our leather gear.”
“She’s good.” Jewel picked up her sketch and began to position it. “I see my share of leather around here. The good, the bad, and mostly the ugly.”
“She’s the best,” Syon added without opening his eyes. “Even has good taste in men.”
Ramsey snorted. Syon offered him a single-finger salute.
“Aren’t you guys cute,” Jewel muttered.
“There’s nothing cute about the part of me you’re looking at.”
She should ignore him.
Should, but she wasn’t going to. Jewel looked up and caught Ramsey grinning at her. “Did you want this done sometime before Christmas?”
“You wouldn’t let me go on stage wearing flowers…would you, Jewel?” He tried out his puppy eyes on her.
“The idea is growing on me.”
He made a soft humming sound beneath his breath. “I like a girl who plays rough.”
“I bet you do.”
Which was just enough of a reality slap to get her focused. He was an animal, the prowling kind.
And she was already living on the edge enough.
She got the drawing in position and transferred it onto his skin.
Normally the word helped her tune out everything but the art.
Yeah, well there wasn’t much of anything that was normal about Ramsey.
Ramsey is the definition of a rock star bad boy. Raw, egotistical and all Alpha. The man is confident in every sense of the word. Ramsay lives up the rockstar life to the fullest until he gets his ass handed to him, potentially scarring his and the band’s image by a vindictive woman. When taking corrective measures Ramsey gets blindsided by an amazing artist who twists him in every way possible. His talent and cockiness make you want melt and smack him one in the same.
Jewel is a spitfire of a woman struggling to make her name as a tattoo artist. An intelligent woman with a background in marketing that is too stuffy to allow her artistic side to breath. Jewel gets the score of a lifetime when the lead guitarist of highly famous band rolls in the tattoo shop during one of her many midnight shifts. She counters his sarcasm with sass, leaving a deep impression with more than just her ink. That impression leads to what could be the biggest opportunity of her life or the hardest fall she will ever take.
Dawn Ryder entices, titillates and seduces readers with artistry, passion and raw emotion with Rock Steady.
Ramsey and Jewel are fun, feisty and have chemistry off the charts. They challenged each other, hit all the right buttons to infuriate and captivate all at the same time. They are overwhelming and wrong hit all the right buttons to infuriate and captive the all at the same time.
Jewel and Ramsey are overwhelming and combustible. The chemistry intense and the passions on fire.
Ms. Ryder’s attention to detail not only shows her talent as a writer but as an artist as well. Intricate details paint an in depth picture and project the feelings within the music and the art.
Combined the personality, charisma, and charm of the characters, a fast-moving plot and feeling like you’ve been sucked into the rockstar life, Ms. Ryder gives her readers the Rockstar fantasy with Rock Steady.
Rock Steady is the second book of the Rock Band series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. However I recommend reading Rock Me Two Times to enjoy this series to it’s fullest.

I, Cassandra Straight, have loved Reed Shamrock to distraction since I was a teenager. I even watched him fall in love with someone else and almost get married.
A year ago, when he walked into his house and found his fiancée’s face in his best friend’s crotch, his life changed forever and it hasn’t been the same since.
On his first night out since the horrible incident, we run into the ex-skank. Seeing the devastation in his eyes, I made a promise that I would help him get over her. I told him that a pretend relationship between us would work. It would help him move on.
I didn’t count on my heart or his getting in the way. And I sure as hell didn’t count on not being able to tell when pretend turned to reality. When it all implodes, the only thing left is the truth.
Sometimes though, the truth? It hides and we have to dig deep to find it. To make it come to the surface, we have to give it a little talking to. We have to give it a little Sass.
Included in the back of Sass is an exclusive sneak peak of “Renegade” – the first book in a new series for 2017!
Add it to your TBR lists on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28529181-sass?
Sexy, hopeful and endearing. Sass is the perfect example of a book that makes you feel. Overflowing with chemistry, depth and tension. An act of friendship puts more than their friends status on the line for Sass and Reed. Emotion becomes a big player when the game becomes more real than either expected. While healing one heart another starts to shatter.
Extremely well developed characters, a good plot and excellent writing has readers flying through the pages. Laramie Briscoe is able to take lifes breathtaking moments, both good and bad, transcribe them to words and make readers feel something that seems so real, you question if you are really reading a book. And can’t help but to fall hard. Sass is going to hit you hard in the heart. Just like any good romance should.
Laramie Briscoe is the best-selling author of the Heaven Hill Series & the Rockin’ Country Series.
Since self-publishing her first book in May of 2013, Laramie Briscoe has published over 10 books. She’s appeared on the Top 100 Bestselling E-books Lists on iBooks, Amazon Kindle, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble. She’s been called “a very young Maya Banks” (Amazon reviewer) and her books have been accused of being “sexy, family-oriented, romances with heart”.
When she’s not writing alpha males who seriously love their women, she loves spending time with friends, reading, and marathoning shows on her DVR. Married to her high school sweetheart, Laramie lives in Bowling Green, KY with her husband (the Travel Coordinator) and a sometimes crazy cat named Beau.

I had the wonderful fortune of being introduced to Ms. Briscoe’s work by a fellow reader and friend who I trust when she says need to read this. Through the journey of her stories I have gotten to see Ms. Briscoe grow tremendously as a writer. In a little under two years she has made her way into one of my favorite authors spots. With her latest work, Ms. Briscoe has truly stepped to a new level that far exceeds any expectations I have come to develop in her work.
Sketch is raw, real and deep. This is a book that hits close to home in a big way. Falling in love is the easy part, maintaining it is where it gets real. Ms. Briscoe hits it right on with Sketch. Relationships are filled with emotion, both good and bad. Communication is the key to keeping everything level, and as relationships are filled with emotion, both good and bad. Highs and lows. It’s how the couple communicates to get through it. Sketch and Nina’s story is so real it gave me chills as I was reading, and had me looking back on my own feelings in my ten year running relationship. There is no way you will not feel something while reading Sketch. And you will be proud to say #IGOTSKETCHED!
Sketch is Ms. Briscoe’s best work. Her voice as a writer is shining through creating magic with her words. A five star read and a top read for 2016.

Q and A with Elle Boon
Welcome Elle and thanks for being here today. Let’s get started.
Please tell us a bit about your current book…
My latest book is Jett’s Wild Wolf, Mystic Wolves 3. This book is not for the faint of heart. It starts off with a bang. The heroine is the daughter of the bad guy, and he is evil incarnate. Taryn has lusted after Jett for a long time, but knew he’d never want her because of who and what she was. But, circumstances throws them together, and it’s only because of her that he is attacked, and then because she has the ability to heal him, they form a bond.
Jett doesn’t trust Taryn, but he wants her more than he’s ever wanted anyone in his life. He plans to work her out of his system, and then find out what he can to destroy her father, even if it means destroying her.
Will these two be able to work through their trust issues, or will the evil from both their pasts rip them apart before they can find their happily ever after?
Who was your favorite character to write and why?
I love my character Zeus from my Ravens of War. He is such an alpha, yet he’s funny, charming, and loves his mate. I truly love him. I also love Nolan from my Mystic Wolves. He’s a little boy and will steal your heart
What’s your favorite genre to write?
Hands down paranormal. I think it’s because I like making shit up.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I really want to go to Italy. I love Italian food, so I know I won’t starve. It’s beautiful and I would love to soak in all things Italian… yes, the men are pretty awesome, too.
Taryn made her way through the throng of people. Bike week in full swing at Sturgis made
it easy for her to blend into the crowd at the largest biker’s bar in town. She loved the anonymity
that came with the thousands of people who flooded the small town each year.
The music throbbed a sexy beat, reminding her of the last time she’d been in Chaps, surely a
stupid move, but a girl was allowed to be stupid every once in a while. As she got closer to the
stage where the band was playing, women were more than half naked, screaming like a bunch of
banshees. Taryn looked over her shoulder at the ladies she’d come with, making sure they were
keeping up with her.
“We are so not taking our tops off, Taryn,” Darian yelled in her ear.
A snort escaped Taryn. She’d met Darian and her motley group of friends a few weeks back
at the library studying for exams. When they’d noticed Taryn sitting alone on a nightly basis, the
women had decided she needed rescuing. Now, she led them to the front, knowing if they needed
rescuing she’d be the one to save their asses.
She looked at the outfits each woman had on, then at her own daring ensemble. Yeah, none
of them had much to take off, yet they all had on more than the women at the front of the stage.
“Get your asses up here ladies, and don’t puss out on me,” Taryn yelled, dragging Jenna and
Kylie along. The band ended one song, only to start another.
Unable to get to the front, she and her friends moved to the side where a dance floor
afforded them a view, but also allowed them the chance to get their groove on as Kylie loved to
say. When she saw the way the girl started bopping to the music without a care, she joined her. A
raucous round of giggling ensued, and then all four were dancing.
Taryn didn’t notice they were drawing attention as they danced to song after song, letting
the beat carry her away. She loved music, could lose herself in the rhythm for hours. Looking up
toward the stage, her eyes met the dark orbs of the one man sure to set her body aflame. He
stared at her while he twirled the drumsticks in both hands, never missing a beat. His lips moved,
singing along to the song, every now and again she could see the piercing on his extremely long
She licked her lips, his eyes seemed to follow the movement, narrowing as a guy bumped
into her back. His black eyes flared, the eyes of his wolf apparent.
Panic made her stumble into Darian. “Excuse me ladies. I need a drink. Be right back.”
She didn’t wait around for them to say anything. Her fight or flight instinct kicking in like
prey caught in a predator’s sight. Not that she thought Jett of the Mystic Pack even knew who
she was. With all the people crowding the bar, there was no way her scent could reach him, she
assured herself. Standing in line to get a drink she got her nerves under control.
After ordering four bottles of beer she made her way back to the dance floor. A DJ had
started playing, giving the band a short break. Taryn handed each lady their drink, accepting their
thanks with a smile. Not seeing the band, or the wolf, she decided she would not think of by
name, Taryn sat her empty bottle of beer on the closest table.
“Oh, who knows how to do this line dance?” she asked. The song playing was an old one
that was sure to get everyone up and dancing. Jenna jumped up and down, grabbing her hand as
they shoved their way to the middle of the sawdust dance floor right in front of the stage.
They whooped and hollered along with the crowd, shaking their asses in miniscule denim
skirts and cowgirl boots. Where Jenna was a little more covered with her boyish figure, Taryn
drew more stares with her voluptuous curves, purple hair and tattoos. She color coordinated her
black and purple tank to match her hair and topped it off with her favorite black boots with
purple snakeskins. She didn’t have a lot of money, but she knew how to buy things on sale.
Shimmying to the beat, they took it down low, slapping the floor with the palm of her hand,
she laughed at the look on Darian’s face as she made sure her knees were held together. No way
in hell was she going to flash her panties to the crowd of onlookers.
“Why didn’t you beotchs join us?” Jenna asked.
Kylie began doing what was known as the peepee dance. “Who’s going to the bathroom
Taryn didn’t like the thought of being left alone, and just the mention of the bathroom had
her bladder waking up. “Let’s go. You know what they say though. Once you break the seal.”
They laughed as they weaved their way toward the ladies room.
About the Author:
I’m a wife and mother who is a retired stay at home mom of 2. I say retired because my youngest
is 14 and my oldest is 20. When my baby went to school, reading saved my sanity, and then the same
year he started school, I was diagnosed with Cancer, again reading saved my sanity. When I
recovered and realized how quickly life could change, I made a bucket list. The number one thing was to live.
Check. On top of that list was to become a published author. Check. Eight years later I have accomplished
that goal and several others.
I live in the Midwest, but I”m a southern girl with only a slight twang who says y’all quite frequently, and am
known to say “Bless Your Heart” A LOT. If you know what that means, you do not want to be the one I say
that to, lol. I cuss worse than if a trucker and a sailor were put together, but I do it with class.
I write what I love to read, erotic romance. My books are definitely full of lots of story, but I leave nothing to the
imagination in or out of the bedroom. My hope is that after readers have read one of my stories, they fall in love with the
characters as much as I have. The best part of my new journey is that I get to create new worlds, and have all kinds of stories in my head just waiting to be written. I truly love to hear from readers. You can find me on Twitter, Facebook or my webside, but I’m on Facebook ALL the
time, so find me. I’d love to hear from you!!!
Reaper’s Fall is the newest standalone in the Reaper’s MC Series. Painter & Melanie’s story is FINALLY here!
Available at the following retailers:

The New York Times bestselling author of Reaper’s Stand is back in her “uber-alpha rough world of MCs”* as one woman’s future is rocked by the man whose hardcore past could destroy her…
He never meant to hurt her.
Levi “Painter” Brooks was nothing before he joined the Reapers motorcycle club. The day he patched in, they became his brothers and his life. All they asked in return was a strong arm and unconditional loyalty—a loyalty that’s tested when he’s caught and sentenced to prison for a crime committed on their behalf.
Melanie Tucker may have had a rough start, but along the way she’s learned to fight for her future. She’s escaped from hell and started a new life, yet every night she dreams of a biker whose touch she can’t forget. It all started out so innocently—just a series of letters to a lonely man in prison. Friendly. Harmless. Safe.
Now Painter Brooks is coming home… and Melanie’s about to learn that there’s no room for innocence in the Reapers MC.
“You want to watch a movie or something?” she asked, nodding toward the TV. I had a decent one, too. Giant-ass flat-screen—homecoming present from the club.
“Sure,” I said, reaching for the remote. I didn’t have cable, but Ruger had set up some kind of box thingie for me so I could stream shit. “Whatcha in the mood for?”
“Not horror,” she said quickly, and I laughed again, remembering that first evening I’d spent with her at Pic’s house. She’d been so young and scared and vulnerable . . . I’d wanted to eat her up.
I still wanted to eat her.
“I can’t believe that you and Puck were supposed to be watching over me, and then you put in a slasher movie. That’s not how you make a girl feel safe.”
“No horror,” I agreed, although the thought of holding her for a couple hours while she was scared shitless appealed way more than it should. Watch it, asshole. “How about Star Wars?”
“You like Star Wars?”
I shrugged. “Everyone likes Star Wars. You know, I’m pretty damned sure Han Solo was a biker.”
She giggled. “You mean, like a space biker?”
“See, when you say it like that it sounds stupid.”
“I wanted to be Princess Leia. She’s badass,” she said, taking a deep drink of her beer. I watched as her lips wrapped around the neck, her throat swallowing. Oh fuck, that was good. She set the beer down on the coffee table with a clink, then let loose with the biggest burp I’d ever heard.
“Fucking hell,” I said, stunned. “I didn’t think girls could burp like that. Shit. Impressive, Mel. Very impressive.”
She grinned at me.
“We’re friends,” she told me. “And friends don’t need to worry about stuff like that. Let me guess—you’ve never had a female friend before?”
“Not really,” I admitted. “I’m think I’m a little scared.”
Scared and turned on, which was weird.
“You should be. I can do the whole alphabet.”
Damn. I kinda wanted to see that.
Painter is so much more than the man I thought he was. Bad ass, cocky and somewhat scary, Painter’s darkness would have never been seen for the outside. Deeper than I ever dreamed and a talent for creating breathing art. Painter is so much more of a man than I ever expected. I may not forgive some of his past actions, however Painter redeemed himself from the man I thought he was.
Melanie Tucker’s home life was shaking and unstable. She learned the hard way that family is more than blood. Melanie never backed away from what she wanted. And never gave up. A strong woman with a huge heart who got thrown into a world way beyond what her innocence has experienced. Turned upside down and inside out, Melanie’s head strong ways falter when she realizes wants she needs is what she really wants.
Joanna Wylde hits the reader with a raw, hard emotional punch. Works you up, pissed you off, rubs it in your face and makes you beg for more within the pages Reaper’s Fall! Painter and Melanie story is a tornado of emotions. Ups and downs, don’t describe the heaven and hell that these two put each other and themselves through. Angry, beautiful, raw and in your face, Reaper’s Fall is an explosion always on the edge of going off.

Designed for Murder (Killer Style 4) by Avery Flynn
Date of Publication: November 10, 2015
This book can be read as a standalone!
Devastated after he discovers the woman he loved and his partner in the role-playing game, Magic
Battledome, was a psychotic killer, Maltese Security’s resident computer genius, SciFi fan and geek-
about-town Carlos Castillo retreats into his work. Tossing aside all ties to the Magic Battledome
community, he eats, sleeps and breaths investigations. He’s determined to prove to the rest of the
team—and himself—that he’s not all book smart and street stupid. He pleads for a case and finally gets
one the boss thinks is right up his alley. Someone is targeting a Live Action Role Playing (LARP) Magic
Battledome team, delivering vicious beatings before robbing them of their costumes. To solve the case,
Carlos has to dive back into the world he’d abandoned.
Mika Ito loves creativity in all its forms. As a textile designer and a LARPer, she combines her two
favorite things by creating costumes for her fellow Magic Battledome elves. But when someone starts
targeting her fellow LARPers and the police don’t seem to be much help, she hires Maltese Security to
solve the case. If a reformed sinner is the most devoted, then a former LARPer is the most rudely
dismissive and Carlos Castillo fits the bill. But when they discover that the material she’s been using for
the costumes has been soaked in liquid cocaine by someone in her supply chain, they must work
together to solve the case. Especially now that the bad guy is doing whatever it takes to retrieve the
tainted material—including having lethal designs on Mika’s life.
Mika is a bright, talented and creative woman. Head strong and independent. She may be a geeky girl but she’s got spunk and sassy. She’s not the kind of girl to back down or give up.
Carlos is the geek turned tough guy. Alpha and totally hot with an underlying sweet and passionate side that makes you melt. His stubborn streak makes you laugh and kind of want to smack him at times.
A lost bet and a dance set the stage for a full on dive into some of the sexiest geekdom I have ever read. Chemistry, passion, a bit of mystery and suspense have the reader racing through the pages. Unexpected twists, undeniable attraction and very likable characters will have you never looking at LARPing the same again. Prepare to laugh until it hurts with Designed for Murder. Sexy, snarky and fast paced, Avery Flynn created the geek girl dream read!
About Avery Flynn
Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately
hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.
She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long
before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she
turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That
worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.
Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write
about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-
given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to
stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
