About In Too Deep:

Title: In Too Deep
Author: Kimberly Kincaid
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 17, 2017
Publisher: Kimberly Kincaid Romance
Series: Station Seventeen
Format: Print & Digital

Synopsis:
As Station Seventeen’s rookie, Luke Slater knows his fire and EMS training will be both rigorous and risky, but he never imagined having to partner up with the one woman he wants to keep at arm’s length most of all. Quinn Copeland is as wide-open as Luke is reserved. He has no interest in letting the sweet and sexy paramedic rock his hard-earned control. But the need for composure becomes the need to survive when they find themselves in the crosshairs of a brutal gang leader on their first shift together.

Paramedic Quinn Copeland’s station mates aren’t just her friends. They’re her family. She’d do anything to keep them safe—including reluctantly trusting her impossible-to-read, impossibly gorgeous new partner with the one thing she holds close. As the passion between Luke and Quinn goes from a slow burn to a sizzle, their steps grow more and more dangerous, both in the fire house and out. Can they outwit a cold-blooded killer and face the fears that could cost them everything? Or are they in too deep?

Excerpt:

An excerpt from IN TOO DEEP
Copyright © Kimberly Kincaid 2017

Quinn sat in the passenger seat of Luke’s sleek, dark gray sports car, finally able to breathe for the first time in hours. The unease that had clutched at her chest, tightening like a vise with each faked smile and passing minute she’d sat in the Crooked Angel, was finally loosening, allowing her the luxury of a steady inhale/exhale without having to hide the truth from the people who were closest to her. She was in Luke’s car, sitting right beside him. His body was right there. Warm. Safe. Close enough for her to reach out and run her hand over his bare forearm, his fingers that were callused in some places, soft in others.
            There. Easy. Breathe…
Luke pulled into the parking lot beside her apartment building, quieting the engine without pulling the keys from the ignition. His gaze moved covertly over their surroundings, mirroring the one Quinn had just sent over the adjacent parking spaces, the brightly illuminated walkway connecting the parking lot with the apartment building, the potential spots where someone might lurk or hide.
            “Looks clear.” It was the first thing he’d said since he’d quietly told Isabella and Hollister he was going to take her home, then paid Kennedy for the beers they didn’t drink.
            Quinn nodded in agreement. “Mmm hmm.”
            Heeding the detectives’ advice not to dawdle, they both got out of the car, Luke locking the doors with a click-CLICK of a button on his key fob before walking her over the paved path leading to the front door of her building. The tension that had made a playground out of her shoulders faded with each step, and she and Luke made their way over the threshold, into the elevator, and down the tastefully carpeted hallway until finally, they were in her apartment.
“Thank you for bringing me home.” Heat climbed Quinn’s cheeks as she grew aware of how very alone they were, standing there in her dusky foyer with nothing but the soft light filtering in from the one bulb she always left lit over the kitchen sink. But Luke was the only person she didn’t have to hide anything from. The only person who could get her to breathe. The only person she could be truthful with.
            And the truth was, she wanted him.
It seemed completely contradictory that her body should respond in such a primal, greedy way when her brain was a jumbled mess. That was just the thing, though. Her thoughts were a mess around her friends. They were a mess when she tried to work, and they were definitely a mess whenever she remembered the kidnapping. The only time her mind wasn’t on overdrive was when she thought of Luke, with his hand on her rib cage and his breath in her ear, as steady as a heartbeat.
God, she wanted his touch so badly, she ached.
            “Do you want to talk about what’s going on with you?” he asked, his eyes steady on hers even through the shadows of her foyer.
            “Honestly?” She stepped toward him and shook her head. “No.”
“Quinn—”
“Please, just stop. I don’t want to talk about the other day. I don’t even want to think about it.”
Luke opened his mouth, likely to argue, but she cut him off before he could say so much as a syllable. “Look, I’m not stupid, okay? I know I can’t ignore things entirely. I’m not foolish or flighty enough to think I can magically make the truth into something it’s not. But you asked me what I need, and right now I need to not remember what happened, just for a little while.”
            A pause opened between them. Quinn’s heart raced so rapidly she was certain he had to be able to register the constant thump-thump-thump from where he stood.
            Finally, he said, “What else do you need?”
            For a question that had the potential to be so complicated, her answer was shockingly simple, and even though she knew it made her vulnerable, she didn’t hesitate.
“Just for tonight, I need to feel something other than scared. I need to remember what it’s like to feel good.” She moved closer, until she could feel his exhale coast over her cheek. Yes. This. I need this. “So please, can you stay for a while and make me feel right again?”

Excerpt:

Just as I was pushing the eggs out of the skillet onto the plates, he walked in through the front door wearing jeans, boots, and a long-sleeved gray shirt. His hair was tied back, and his beard had been trimmed back to his jaw line. He looked delicious.
“Morning!” I set our plates on the table, and he looked up from slipping out of his boots to my grinning face.
“I figured you hadn’t eaten, so I made some for you too.” I smiled, and felt slightly awkward with him still standing in the doorway, staring at me. His blue eyes were lit with uncontrolled emotion, for once. I read what was in them without using my powers. I walked over to the sink to wash my hands, not wanting to see that look on his face, knowing well that he didn’t want to do anything about it. I really didn’t blame him. Like I told him last night, there was only so much a heart could take. His had taken too much over his lifetime.
I hadn’t heard him walking toward me until he gripped my arm and spun me around. His hands moved down to my waist and hoisted me up onto the counter. My eyes were wide as he maneuvered himself between my legs, my eyes on his while his lips descended onto my own.



Cover Reveal ~ One To See Me by Alicia Maxwell #Romance





Title: One To See Me 
Author: Alicia Maxwell 
Genre: Romance 
Release Date: November 2, 2017
Cover Designer: Shari Ryan, MadHat Covers 



Can you trust someone who can’t afford to trust you back?
Emmeline is ready to be seen. And someone is watching.
Emmeline Weiss is facing the most important day of her life. The stakes are high: her high-powered, high-society life in Chicago could come crumbling down around her. But if it did, would she be in a free fall, or would she be free? In a time like this, Emmeline knows she needs to sort enemies from friends—and quickly—but who can she trust? And what if trust has more than ONE definition?
As her life dismantles into dark questions and darker answers, the last thing Emmeline expects is for passion and chemistry, physical need and wild sex, to take over. For the first time, with this sexy stranger, Emmeline feels seen.
But maybe it’s because someone is watching…












I step inside and gasp.  The space is filled with candles.  Their lights flicker,  casting shadows on the walls.  Some tumblers are bigger, filled with shells, others are just small enough to hold the pillars.  My heart jumps at the thought of Alex.  Who else would have done this?  How?  He can’t be here.  He’s in Miami.  Chicago is not his kind of town.  Or is it?
I take a few tentative steps inside and discover the flow of candles is endless, continuing from the main room to the bedroom.  The air smells of candle wax and salty ocean breeze.  I walk in slowly, making my way through the space.  The bedroom comes partially into view; it’s completely filled with candles and glowing in their light.
I make my way in and the whole room is on display.  A huge bed is surrounded by flickering lights, a chair tucked into the corner by the floor-to-ceiling window with a view of Michigan Avenue.  Alex is sitting in the chair, legs spread wide, elbows on the armrests, hands forming a dome, with index fingers touching his lips.  He looks at me quizzically, capturing my reaction.
I exhale and visibly relax, his mere presence lowering my stress level by several degrees.  
“Hi!” I say in breathless voice, suddenly feeling overcome by the emotions of the day, energy leaving me and the warmth from the wine I had over dinner coming back to claim me.  I’m ready to give up control for the night, let him be in charge.  I’m way too tired.
My eyes shine with alcohol glaze, or maybe the unshed tears I kept at bay all day long.  I step towards him and extend my arms.  He’s on his feet and wrapping me in a hug instantaneously.  We inhale each other and stand wordlessly in the middle of countless glimmering candles.
Alex finds my lips and kisses me gently, fingers skimming over my cheeks, tucking a loose, curly strand of hair away.  Pulling back for just a second to look at my face, he places a gentle kiss on my forehead and tucks me under his chin.  I’m so small against him, both physically and emotionally.  He is the ever-in-control one.  Finally, I feel safe today.   
We spend minutes engulfed in each other’s embrace.  Candles flicker near and far, on every surface of the suite, creating dancing shadows on the walls.
Finally, I look up at him, feeling calmed and grounded.

Release Blitz ~ Murder at Broadcast park by Bill Evans #Thriller #Myastery




Thriller / Mystery
eBook Published: October 17, 2017
Publisher: Koehler Books October 2017

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Before this current age of broadcasting acquisitions and mergers, local TV stations were owned by the broadcasters, not investment firms. They lived to tell the stories of their communities. In Murder at Broadcast Park, the CBS station located in the rich resort town of Santa Barbara becomes it’s own story. “We never want to be our own news,” was the mandate from Barry Burke, the station’s news director. Except in this case, people are dying. With three murders, more affairs, but no suspects, investigators peer behind the scenes of the local news. Pull the veil off to find twists, turns, and secrets behind the scenes of this resort TV station and its cast of TV professionals. Nothing is off limits.

"Murder, sex scandals and cover-ups. It sounds like a great news day until you find out: you are the news!" --Dana Beards, Political Reporter, Capitol Television News Service


"A serious page-turner for serious 'who done it' fans. Don't read the first page of Murder at Broadcast Park unless you plan to race through every page until the end. Vivid and memorable characters. A twisty plot that keeps you guessing. And all of it in laid back Santa Barbara where murders are not the norm. Right? In his sojourn novel Bill Evans proves himself to be a master story teller. I can't wait for his next one. Hint. Hint." --David Welch, Talk Show Host, WRNR

Heart of Time
Ruined Heart, Book 1

For Eona, manipulating time is second
nature. It gives her an edge in her dramatic circus performances, but
it also separates her from the other artists in her troupe. She has
always known that her unique kind of magic could make her a target,
but she couldn’t have prepared for being kidnapped, manipulated and
imprisoned by a megalomaniac sorcerer.
In order to figure out what he wants

a mythical creature, and the feelings she has for a certain beautiful
elven woman.

There are about twenty illustrations
in the book, drawn by artists from all over the world.








Skye MacKinnon is a bestselling author

involved.

overly spoilt house rabbits and a few hundred self-obsessed
characters constantly asking her to tell their stories. One day she
will. Promise.

Book Tour & Giveaway ~ Rememdium Series by Ashley Fontainne #Post-Apocalyptic #SciFi


Tainted
Cure
The
Rememdium Series Book 1
by
Ashley Fontainne
Genre:
Post-apocalyptic, SciFi

Scientists
attempted to find a cure for addiction. They failed.





Dr.
Everett Berning, a leading researcher into the causes of addiction in
the brain, spent ten years of his life dedicated to one thing:
finding the cure. Recruited after a strange encounter with the
enigmatic Dr. Roberta Flint, Director of Research on Code Name:
Rememdium, Dr. Berning is sent to work in a secret lab as part of the
research team.

When
the moment the scientists waited on for years arrives, Dr. Flint and
her team are ecstatic. 

Unfortunately,
not everyone in the world feels the same way.

Benito
San Nicholas isn't ready to give up his lucrative business. When the
news of a cure arrives on his doorstep from a crooked informant,
Benito enlists the help of other drug lords from around the world to
stop the cure from hitting the streets and destroying their
livelihoods.

What
happens next ends up uniting the globe--just not the way society ever
intended or hoped.



Tainted
Cure is a huge success on different levels. First, the story is
original, well thought-out, and brilliantly accomplished. It’s not
unusual to read books with dangerous products falling into the wrong
hands, but what happens when a good product falls into the wrong
hands? The characters are lovely and engaging, and readers will feel
inclined to connect with Dr. Everett Berning and the enigmatic
Roberta Flint. Benito is the epitome of evil, a greedy character that
readers will hate. Third, the pace is fast and there are so many
surprises and twists to keep readers turning the pages. Ashley
Fontainne has crafted an intriguing story that starts with a bang and
ends on a very high note. You can’t help but fall for this author’s
beautiful prose, her complex characters, and the oh-so-entertaining
read.” - Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite
