Series: The Awakening Series #2
Author: D.L. Hess
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 26, 2017



Blurb

“It’s becoming fast apparent that the only way I’m going to be able to stay away from a certain diner waitress is if she orders me away. . . And, even then, it’s going to be difficult to stay away.”

Hollywood heartthrob Nate Stone returns to his south Louisiana hometown to direct a movie, but once he gets there all he can think about is the pretty waitress at the local diner. Tori Wilson knows that the smoking hot actor-turned-director will stop at nothing to get her into his bed, but he can only offer her a short affair–and he’s asking for a lot more than simple sex. Tori has never wanted anyone as badly as she wants Nate, but is she willing to let him take control when she’s already been burned before? And if she submits to his commands, will he dominate her heart?

“Nate Stone leaves devastation in his wake. When he walks away from me the last time, I’ll be a different person than I was before I met him. It would be smart of me to end it here and now, but god help me, I’m in too deep already and the only way this will end is when he leaves me for good, crushed and alone. I can’t stop it and I won’t, I’ll continue to fall to my doom with only the hope that there will be something left to my heart on the other side. Even so. . . I want everything he can give me.”

Scandalous by LJ Shen

Publishing Date: September 29th, 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance

They call him The Mute for a reason.
Hard, cold and calculated, he rarely speaks.
When he does, it’s with disdain.
When he does, his words aren’t meant for me.
When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis.
He is thirty-three.
I am eighteen.
He’s a single dad and my father’s business partner.
I’m just a kid to him and his enemy’s daughter.
He’s emotionally unavailable.
And I am…feeling. Feeling things I shouldn’t feel for him.
Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn’t just on the wall, it’s inked on my soul.
And yet, I can’t stay away.
A scandal is the last thing my family needs. But a scandal is what we’re going to give them.
And oh, what a beautiful chaos it will be.

Excerpt:

Trent’s gaze cut to mine and stopped when his grays met my blues. The fading noise of Vicious barking at people to move along, and my father finally letting go of my arm to move toward Jaime and Dean—probably trying to gain both allies and sympathy—died down. “I don’t like you,” Rexroth whispered under his breath, his voice harsh. “I never asked you to.” I shrugged. “You won’t be working here.” His arm brushed my shoulder, but I didn’t think it was by accident. I let loose a sugary smile, scanning his face and torso for no other reason other than to taunt him. “Good, you’ll be doing me a favor. My father is the one forcing me to work here. He’s pissed I turned down five Ivy League colleges. Remind me, Mr. Rexroth—which top tier university did you attend for your degree?” The low blow was supposed to retrieve some of my lost dignity, but bile burned my throat, shotgunned from my stomach. Trent Rexroth was known in Todos Santos as an exhilarating success story, rising from the gutters of San Diego. He went to a shitty state college that accepted even the illiterate, working as a janitor on campus after hours. Those were given facts he’d recited himself in an interview for Forbes. Had I really just tried to make him feel less worthy because he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth? It made me sicker than wearing my mother’s designer garbs. Trent smiled, leaning into my body, into my soul. His smirk was more frightening than any scowl, frown, or grimace I’d ever seen. It threatened to tear me apart and sew me back together however he pleased. “Edie.” His lips were dangerously close to my ear. A delicious shiver moved down my spine. Something warm rolled inside of me, begging to unknot and flower into an orgasm. What was happening, and why the hell was it happening? “If you know what’s best for you, you will turn around and leave right now.” I elevated my head to meet his gaze and showed him my version of a grin. I was born and raised in a world of intimidating rich men, and I’d be damned if I go down like my mother—addicted to xanax, Gucci, and a man who paraded her on his arm for a short, glorious decade before keeping her solely for public appearances. “I think I’m going to go find my desk now. I’d wish you a good day, Mr. Rexroth, but I think that ship has sailed. You’re a miserable man. Oh, and one for the road.” I fished for a Nature Valley bar in my mother’s purse and plastered it to his hard, muscled chest. My heart slammed into my neck, fluttering like a caged bird. I hurried after my father as he glided down the vast, golden-hued hallway, not daring to look back. Knowing I’d started a war and arrived unequipped. But I also knew something else that gave me a surfer’s rush—if I could slam the final nail in my employment coffin and make Rexroth vote against me, I’d be off the hook. I had just the plan for it. All I had to do was act like a brat. Game on. Scandalous-AN.jpg

Imogen Boxed Set (Part II) by R.B. O'Brien

Title: Imogen: A Dark Romance Books 5-8
Author: R.B. O'Brien
Genre: Erotic Romance/Dystopian
Release Date: September 30, 2017 
“Do not cry. God. You look so god-damned beautiful. You knew this would never be anything. I took you, Imogen. Think about that, would you? I captured you. Enslaved you. Tormented you. Threatened you. Every day would be a reminder of that past.” At last, the conclusion to the story of Imogen, a young maiden taken by her enemy on her wedding night by the mysterious and powerful Erik, is complete in this four-volume set, Tattered, Tormented, Threatened, and Tethered. Questions are answered, pasts are finally revealed, and as the war that brought this couple together comes to an end, can Imogen forgive Erik for what he is about to do? Filled with mixed emotions about her undeniable feelings for her captor, Imogen struggles between hopes of freedom with the reality of first staying safe. As she learns the stories and legends of her captor’s history, so deeply intertwined with her own past, she begins to question everything. Fear, lust, jealousy, love, death, and ultimately truth explode all at once. Messy. Complicated. Unexpected. With cruel and unkind soldiers waiting to sink into and corrupt Imogen’s innocence, Imogen faces imminent danger and a cruel and humiliating test at the hands of Erik that leaves her more confused than ever. As another slave vies for and succeeds at getting Erik’s attention as well, is Imogen’s safety even a priority for him anymore? Or is he in love with someone else? This dark, suspenseful romance puts the emotional gamut into a blender and hits the on button. What pieces will remain? You may want to go back and start the series over from the beginning to put it all back together. And maybe even again after that!
“Imogen?” Erik put his arms around me from behind, our bodies touching, lying on our sides, and he traced small circles across my lower abdomen until I began to squirm. His erection pushed into the crack of my ass, and I felt myself pooling with arousal between my thighs. He kissed my neck and whispered in my ear. “Go back to sleep.” The gruff gravel of it vibrated, spreading goosebumps to every part of my body. My arms were in pain, still tied behind my back, and I groaned a bit. “Erik. My arms. Please.” He continued to touch me just above the spot I craved him to and kissed my neck repeatedly. My body grew warm and needy, and I squeezed my eyes shut, trying to fight it, trying not to admit or accept that what he was doing felt good. I squeezed my legs firmly together to try to hide the wet, sticky mess I was making, clenching to alleviate some of the ache. “Still,” he ordered. His hands moved away from my pleasure spot and traveled under my breasts, and he touched them like a feather would, and I accidentally moaned his name and shook my legs to try to relieve some of the pressure mounting. He chuckled into my neck. “Go back to sleep or I will torture you this way until I need to go work.” He tweaked my nipples, and I squeaked out a sound of pure lust and froze, humiliated. “Training again tonight, Imogen. You like this too much. Quiet now. Sleep.” I only like it with you, I thought to myself.
R.B. O'Brien has always been drawn to the more taboo side of storytelling, even as a young adult, from hiding books from strict Catholic parents as a teen to getting lost in the erotic sections of bookstores for hours. As a writer, O'Brien explores the darker, erotic nature of relationships, those riddled with the reality of insecurities and human folly, exposing the vulnerability, emotional turmoil, and occasional pain that can come from losing oneself in the heat of passion. 
O'Brien holds a degree in English literature and happily resides in the Northeast of the United States. Her first series, the highly acclaimed Natalie's Edge trilogy, is now available in ebook format, the third of which, Redemption, was nominated for the Golden Flogger Award for best BDSM romance. THORNE, O'Brien's second dark romance suspense series is complete and available NOW, a tale where things are not what they seem. O'Brien has just released her award-winning series, formerly the Capture of Rosemary, The IMOGEN series. 
“To write is to descend, excavate, to go underground.”—Anais Nin.
O'Brien is a member on The Nu Romantics, a collaborative group who strives to redefine romance.
