New Release – Seasons in the Dark Anthology

BisMan Wr (1)Title: Chill of the Reaper part of the “Seasons in the Dark” Anthology 

Author: Tina Holland

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date:  December 1, 2022 

Publisher: BisMan Writers Guild

Blurb:

Daredevil Daisy Heyer is dead, stuck on earth, and avoiding a persistent reaper who’s been chasing her through the centuries.   Being a ghost sucks but it’s better than hell.   Daisy had been a bad girl in the Wild West and she has no guarantee which direction the reaper will take her. 

Simon Travers has been a reaper for over one hundred and twenty-five years.  He’s successfully brought every soul to heaven or hell, except Daisy Heyer.  She was his first and the one that got away.  He has time though, because once dead there is no going back. 

After a spell is cast making Daisy flesh and blood, will she stay on earth or feel the Chill of the Reaper?

Excerpt: 

Daisy woke with a kink in her neck. Weird. She stretched on the sofa. Wait! She didn’t sleep or get kinks. She shot straight up. Too fast, she realized, when a pounding started in her head. She placed her left hand on her temple, willing it to stop. “Collette!”

Colette came running down the basement stairs. “Holy craft. You’re flesh and blood.” 

 Daisy didn’t bother to hide her sarcasm. “Really? I hadn’t noticed. What did you do?”

Colette looked at the beige carpet as if fascinated by a non-existent pattern. 

Daisy tapped her boot on the carpet. “Well?”

The witch pinched her index finger and thumb together. “I may have tweaked Nana’s spell a bit.” 

She threw her hands up. “A bit!?”

Colette crossed her arms and rolled her eyes. “I just wanted you to find true love.” 

“True love?” Daisy suddenly felt a great desire to go back to sleep. 

“Yeah. I’ve given you forty-eight hours in mortal form.”

“Collette, I haven’t been mortal in a hundred and twenty-five years. What the hell am I supposed to do in two days?” She was suddenly anxious to return to her former self. 

“Daisy, if you find true love, your soul won’t be bound for hell.” 

“I get into heaven?” Could she after all these years? 

“I’m not a hundred percent certain, but my research clearly indicated a soul could not go to hell if it felt love.” 

“Anything to not go to hell.” Daisy hadn’t lived the best life. She had been an independent woman of the west and rather than earn money in easier ways, she’d taken to a life of crime. “Okay, so how do I find true love?” 

“Well, first we need to change your wardrobe.” 

Daisy looked down. She was wearing the clothes she’d died in, with a crimson starburst pattern on her chest and her six-shooter strapped to her hip. A change was definitely in order. “I’ve always wanted to be a blonde.”

Release Blitz – Saints and Sinners by Nikki Landis

Title: Sinners & Saints
Series:  Ravage Riders MC
Author: Nikki Landis
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: August 26, 2022


I’d do anything for my club.

The Ravage Riders are my family. They welcomed me in, gave me a safe place to crash away from the horrors and abuse I endured, and my best friend Edge is as close to me as a brother. Nothin’ ever came between us until Rae. We both fell hard. She chose him. I was left standing alone.

I swore I wouldn’t love again. I told myself no other woman could ever be as perfect as Rae. And then, a social worker with good intentions and a perfect smile showed up at the door. Her curvy figure snagged my attention, and then her sultry voice. Cara charmed me from the first word she spoke.

Girls like her don’t fall for guys like me. She’s practically a saint. Cara takes care of kids and the elderly and donates time to a homeless shelter. I swear there’s a bright gold halo over her head. I’m a born sinner. A biker, an outlaw. I ride a Harley and don’t care about obeying the law. The thoughts in my head are downright wicked, and with every fantasy that pops in there, I want to act them out with her.

Deadly secrets emerge along with lies, deceit, and a ruthless ex plotting against the Riders. When Cara’s life is threatened, my protective instincts kick in. She’s mine. No one is tearing us apart. This sinner will unleash hell to protect his saint. And I won’t stop until she’s back in my arms where she belongs.

*** Note: This book can be read as a standalone, but for best enjoyment should be read after Sins of the Father. It includes steamy scenes, biker slang, cursing, violence, dark content, a paranormal twist, and, of course, an HEA. If you like alpha males who take charge, this book is for you.

I’ve always loved to write ever since I was young. I would picture myself as the main character so I could go on adventures. They began as daydreams, which I eventually put down onto paper. Throughout the years I would write whenever I got the chance no matter how small the manuscript turned out to be. I’d tried the traditional method of sending out query letters to agents, but they would respond with a “thanks, but no thanks” note. I felt discouraged, but kept writing. I had a lot of encouragement from my mom, my Aunt Jeanne, my daughter, and my husband. Having the support helped keep me chasing my dream. A few years ago, I decided to buckle down and get serious about my writing. After some research and speaking with a friend of my husband, I took the plunge into self-publishing. I found an editor and a cover designer along with other indie authors on Facebook. I’ve joined groups and asked advice from writers who have already been through the steps it takes to get out there. It took me four years and three versions before I published my first book titled Wasteland. From there, I’ve completed several series and stand-alones with quite a few more in progress, so watch for their release.

Moving to Silicon Valley is a dream come true for techy nerd girl, Cassidy Parker. She’s grabbed the chance to make millions on the line but the cost was having to agree to the unthinkable, working with Xander James, a man who embodies everything she despises. Dangerous, covered in tattoos under a sleek suit and a mouth to make anyone blush, he’s everything she’s promised to never fall for, again. So, why is it that she can’t stop thinking about that kiss that still rattles her three months later…

“I love the world Heather has made, and it’s backed with laughs which I love. I hope there’s more to come from this world.” – Goodreads Review

Alone in a dark closet I continue to pant while my body tingles with the biggest orgasm of my existence. I can’t help the perma-grin plastered on my face. I’m sure I look like a lunatic but I don’t care. Wow. Holy mother of wow. I press my fingertips to my swollen lips remembered how moments earlier Xander was devouring them like they were the best things he had ever tasted. And holy f-ing shit, he totally just fingerbanged me in an office supplies closet. My smile falls. All remainders of my euphoric orgasm have vanished and is now replaced with panic. Someone opened the door and saw us. Well saw him, he completely eclipsed me with his broad sexy shoulders and strong arms. His very large dick pressed into my belly and he was like an unmoving wall of protection. For a moment I felt both orgasmic and completely safe. Like I was his and no one else could see me. Stupid feelings. He took off without a word, it was probably just another game to him. Instead of a vicious prank he changed the tone and in these new sex games I get orgasms. Which are awesome. Seriously so good.

Ok, Xander you want to play games I’ll play, but I don’t lose. I play to win and I’m coming for your orgasms. Payback will be so satisfying.

Cover Reveal & Pre-Order- Alchemists of Archangel

Title: Alchemists of Archangel

Series:  Archangel Revolution

Author: Tina Holland

Genre: Steampunk, Gaslamp Fantasy, Alternate History, Romance

Release Date:  December 30, 2020

Publisher: Book Boutiques

Cover Artist: Valerie Tibbs

Blurb:

When scientist Abigail Phelan is accused of murder, she must prove her innocence despite not remembering the crime.

Inspector Raven Clark knows Abbie didn’t kill the miner, but she is tied to the killer.

Abbie and Raven begin a search for both the killer and her memories bringing them closer to the truth and one another.

But when Archangel residents fall ill from a bizarre pandemic Raven must hunt for the killer while Abbie battles a ravaging disease. 

Will they discover the identity of the murderer before losing everything they’ve found?

Excerpt: 

Abigail Phelan shot him a brief glare before concentrating on her plate. “As I suspected, the Gunns have left you alone with me.” 

“Did they?  Whatever for?”  Laurel and Ben could not have guessed Raven’s attraction to this vulnerable beauty. Could they?

“So you could begin your interrogation of me regarding Cornelius Turner’s death.”  She tilted her head.

He scanned her evaluating her words.   “I doubt you had anything to do with Mr. Turner’s murder.” 

She leaned forward, “So foul play is suspected.” 

“I’m afraid so.  What can you tell me about that night?” Raven couldn’t help but wonder how this tiny breath of a woman was wrapped up in Alchemia’s most gruesome murder.

“I can’t recollect much from the night of Mr. Turner’s murder. I’ve tried but every time I search my memory, my throat locks up, and I feel my limbs numb and my brain becomes foggy.  It sounds strange, I know.  Doctor Gunn says my symptoms are similar to shell shock.”

“I’m aware of the disorder.” His mind burned with the memory of his own experience. 

“I’m sorry I can’t be of more help.  Cornelius was a wonderful man and very kind to me and my birds.” 

“Tell me about him.” Her voice soothed him, despite the fact he found birds as exciting as watching a clock tick.

“Cornelius was my first canary courier.  The couriers run the birds to and from the mines.  They also have to sit with the fledglings so the birds become used to them.  Cornelius even went so far as to watch the hatchlings.  He was a surrogate to many of the colored canaries.” 

“Was he collecting birds from you that night?” 

“No.  I went to town.” 

“To meet him?” Raven wondered if more passed between Abigail and Cornelius.

“No to meet with…” Abigail began to rub her temples.  “I’m sorry I don’t remember.”

New Release – Keeping Secrets by D.M. Earl

Title: Keeping Secrets
Series: Grimm Wolves MC #4
Author: D.M. Earl
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: November 13, 2020
Cover Design: Joanna Walker @ Just Write Creations


An honorable man: soldier, lover, father, and friend. How did this happen? When did the lies begin? How can one man be expected to keep them all straight, even knowing the consequences deep down to his soul if he doesn’t?

Lenny ‘Iron’ Fensley realizes each day is truly a gift in his world. Not only is his life but also the lives of the two most important people in the world, his baby girl and the woman he loves, are in constant danger? A danger he never saw coming when he was doing his duty serving his country. 

When Iron starts prospecting with the Grimm Wolves MÇ, he feels like he has found a safe haven with his club brothers and their families. As they open their hearts to not only him but to his daughter, Everly, and his baby momma, Joy, he feels a sense of security for the first time since all the lies began. That is until he is faced with a secret from not only one of the club’s member but their enforcer, who could put him six feet under. 

Realizing he is screwed, Iron finally confides in the one person he never thought he would. However, to prove he can keep secrets he has to reveal the one closest to his heart.

Cheri, Words Turn Me On – “As always you can be assured there is steam, emotions, loyalty, club unity, and a storyline to keep you reading.”
Julie, Spunky n Sassy – “This is such an emotional roller coaster.”
