Kismet by A.E. Woodward ~ SALE BLITZ ~

Kismet Banner Kismet



Katie’s world came crashing down in an instant.

Her husband, daughter, and unborn baby. . . all gone in a flash. The life that she’d come to know, gone before she ever really got to live it.

With a broken heart, she deals the only way she knows how, by shutting it all off. No communicating, no feelings, just pure nothingness.

Alone with nothing but her own thoughts and a well meaning family, she moves back to her childhood home, a horse farm. It’s there that she finds herself healing along with the horses her family rehabilitates. But when Parker McKenzie comes back into her life she’s reminded of all that went wrong, and all that she lost.

Will Katie ever begin to heal? Or will her secrets and loss be too much for her to overcome?

Perhaps, this is her kismet.

Karma by A.E. Woodward ~ COVER REVEAL ~



At thirty-two Tommy Garvin never thought he’d be playing house. Especially not with his best friend. But when life throws lemons at you, it hurts. Then once the pain subsides you adjust and figure out how to make lemonade. It was apparent to everyone that Parker and
Khloe needed Tommy, but in a strange way he needed them just as much. 

None of them could have imagined what a life without Katie would be like and they certainly couldn’t have predicted what would come from the gaping hole she left behind. No one knew what would rise from the ashes, but one thing is for certain-life sure has a way of knowing what’s needed. It’s karma.

Absolution by LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole ~ COVER REVEAL ~ GIVEAWAY ~

Title: Absolution
Authors: LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Cover Design: Ikonic Imagery
Photographer: Wander Aguiar
Model: Garrick Murdie  
 Release Date: January 11, 2016



I pray to be forgiven for my sins, but the prayers of someone like me won't dare breach the edge of heaven.

Sins. All sins are equal in the eyes of God, but I'm not God. Some sins are far more wretched than others. And those sinners should pay, Evelyn. One sinner made me his sin, and I can't let men like him live. They must face their judgement, Evelyn. I want to kill them. Every. Last. One.

Ezra James is no different, and I wanted to kill him, I needed to kill him, I'm was going to kill him...And then I found myself fascinated by him, obsessed and possessed in the most reverent of ways. I became his sinner, and he became my sin, but the wages of sin is death, so I must kill him.


The son of a whore, raised by gangsters, moulded into a key player in a corrupt world ruled by money and completely without morals.

This world can break a person. I’ve seen it time and time again. I never gave a shit, until the night I watched a man drop dead at the feet of a woman so broken she made even me feel whole. My little killer called to my depravity and everything in me demanded that I take her, possess her, own her.

Some monsters hide behind the faces of angels, where others stand in plain sight.

Damned. Broken. Irredeemable.

Through blood, absolution shall be found.

Shuffle by Lisa Swallow ~ BLOG TOUR PROMO ~ GIVEAWAY ~ EXCERPT ~

Shuffle (Ruby Riot #2)


Will Campbell, Ruby Riot bassist, is back at university and failing badly at everything apart from partying.

With Ruby Riot on a break, Will returns to university to finish his degree. He needs major help if he wants to pass his final year and attempts to join a not-very-rock star study group. Will is horrified to discover the person organising the group is Fleur Roberts, the girl he’s secretly crushed on for two years and who recently threatened him with a restraining order.

Fleur’s rock stars are history academics. She has no interest in any variety of pierced, tattooed slacker, especially not the jackass rock star who humiliated her at a party. There’s no way in Hell that Will Campbell is joining her group.

Faced with losing the easiest way to fix his academic problems, Will has the perfect solution: pretend he’s his twin, Nate. Will and Nate have swapped identities before so nothing can go wrong. Surely.

Fleur is successful academically, but her love life is a failure. Following a number of disastrous dates, she finds herself falling in love with a guy who is lying to her. But Will’s deceit isn’t the only thing about to shatter her world. When another man Fleur trusted betrays her, and she attempts to retaliate, Fleur discovers how dangerous he is. And when Will becomes involved, the repercussions threaten both of their futures.

Shuffle is the second standalone book in the Ruby Riot series and can be read separately to the first book.


(every ‘Nate’ who is in the excerpts with Fleur is Will)

I step closer and look down at Fleur whose breathing grows heavier, face pinker. “Do you think I ever trick any girl into thinking they’re worth more unless they are? Why would I do that? Chicks know what they’re getting into with me, I - "
“Exactly!” she says. “And I’m not ‘getting into it’ with you!”
“Being your fun for a few days.”
“A few days? How many days have I spent with you? Both of us fighting this... whatever the hell this is.”
“Not both of us.”
“The kiss?”
“One kiss.”
“One mind-blowing kiss,” I correct.
“Wasn’t that special,” she mutters.
“Now who’s lying?”
The volume in the room grows as the evening darkens outside. “You’re confusing me! Leave me alone!”
“Fuck this,” I mutter under my breath, grab Fleur’s head firmly in both hands and kiss her.
Immediately, she presses her mouth back on mine, hands going to my chest. She pushes her tongue into my mouth and I stumble. Fleur tastes as she does in my memories; sweet, intoxicating. I pull her towards me, wrap my arms around her soft curves, and I’m gone. Fleur’s about to discover exactly how much I’ve held back and judging by the way her mouth is locked on mine, Fleur’s as desperate for this kiss as I am.
Maybe it’s because I'm kissing her as Will and not Nate, no more secrets, but I want her. Bad. I pull my face away, leaving the tiniest of gaps between our lips. “Want me to stop?”
She doesn’t answer and pulls my head to hers again. I back up and lift Fleur onto the desk. Her darkened eyes tell me all I need to know: her self-control is rapidly leaving too. No way did I expect this reaction from her, but it’s bloody awesome.

Having been a fan of MAV since BallBusting B***H I am always excited to dive into her work. I was one of those who bought Ph X and never got a chance to read it so when I saw the chance to do this tour I was thrilled to finally read both books. Thankfully with that bit of a cliffy in book 1 I was able to jump right into book 2 and also thankful it picked up where it left off without having to go back over things or skipping ahead time leaving you wondering. I enjoyed the back and forth and the sometimes annoying actions of X and Anna LOL. If they were perfect or life was perfect we wouldn't have a great story to read and drive us crazy. I like being tormented by authors , I don't want an HEA to be handed over nicely !! 

I was scared for X at the end of book 1 - OMG he went wild and what will his fate be ?? Thankfully he is bailed out and rescued by who we think is Anna but soon find out it is not...

Boss man is not happy and to remedy the mess X has made he has a plan. This is messy and X isn't happy yet he has no choice unless he and Anna quit their jobs and start over. Now that Anna works on Tension she has obligations to the show that she cannot get out of yet X is looking at having to stay away for a bit. Fines to pay , limitations on where he can be and time away from Anna is not what X wants. This is a struggle and it sends him back home to where it all began and ended for him and his family. We know very little about X and his past, poor Anna knows less than us, will they survive this or will this be the last straw ?? Anna is very pushy about wanting to know it all and despite X being against talking about his past she pushes a little too much. The hurdles keep popping up and if you thought they had people to dodge in book 1 just wait it gets worse. As we learn just how horrible X had it in the past we see Anna grow and become stronger and we also see X change into a man in love. Hopefully the strength of their love is enough to get them through this struggle. It is the never ending rollercoaster LOL -

Now having said that I have to say how much I love the chemistry between Anna and X. That feeling of never having enough , the need to be desired and devoured. Letting X have his way so we could all experience his ability !! YUM YUM and I am not usually a fan of longer hair but that cover is SPOT ON and I wouldn't mind tugging on that !!!!
