COVER REVEAL_ Sweet Temptation-3

SweetTemptation AMAZON

The first time Cassio met his fiancée, she called him ‘Sir’.

After losing his wife, Cassio is left to take care of two small children while trying to establish his rule over Philadelphia. Now he needs a mother for his children, and someone who can warm his bed at night.

But in a traditional world as his, choosing your wife is duty not pleasure.

Rules have to be followed. Traditions heeded.

That’s how he ends up with a woman—a girl barely of age. She might not be what he and his children need, but she’s wicked lovely and a sweet temptation he can’t resist.

Giulia always knew she’d marry a man her father chose for her. Only she never expected to be given to someone much older.

Suddenly she’s supposed to be a mother to two small children when she hasn’t even held a baby in her life.

Giulia quickly realizes that Cassio isn’t interested in a relationship on equal footing. Her mother always warned her that men of power like Cassio don’t tolerate insolence; yet, tired of being treated as a nanny and clueless child-bride, Giulia decides to fight for her vision of a happy family.

Acting on impulse, I leaned forward and brushed my lips across his then darted my tongue out, tasting the liquor clinging to his mouth. Smoky and sweet.

Cassio stiffened, but the look on his face became even more intense than before. “What was that?” His voice was a low rasp that I could feel everywhere.

“A kiss?” I didn’t have much experience, but I doubted anyone could mess up a simple kiss.

“Are you trying to influence me with your body?”

My eyes grew wide. “No. I could smell the liquor on your breath, and I was curious how it tastes.”

Cassio chuckled. “You are a strange girl.” His mouth twisted. “Woman.”

He looked down at the dog in my arms. It was snuggled against me peacefully. Without a word, Cassio turned around and returned to his glass of whisky on the table. I stepped inside and closed the door. Stroking the dog, I followed my husband.

“What’s its name?”

“Loulou,” Cassio said, a strange note to his voice. I stopped beside him.

“Can I have a sip of your whisky?”

Cassio’s eyes bored into me. “You’ve never had whisky before?”

“No. My father didn’t allow me to drink alcohol. I had my first glass at our wedding.”

“Many firsts for one day.” A small shiver passed down my spine at the contemplative growl. “You aren’t old enough for hard liquor.”

My lips parted in indignation. Was he serious?

He downed the remains of his drink, and before I could say something snarky, he cupped the back of my head and pressed his lips to mine. Gently at first, his eyes searching mine. I grasped his bicep and stood on my tiptoes—his permission. Then he really kissed me, his tongue stroking mine, discovering my mouth. The taste of whisky swirled in my mouth, intoxicating—not as much as the kiss though. God, his kiss set me aflame.

Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway ~ Pretty Lies by Bethany-Kris

PRETTY LIES

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: March 2, 2020
Genres: Adult, New Adult, Mafia Romance, Romantic Suspense

SYNOPSIS

Pretty things always tell lies …

Cory Rossi isn’t what you would expect the youngest son of the Chicago mob’s underboss to be. Despite what everyone thinks, he can actually do what he’s told. He just does it his own way. The problem with that is every tattooed- and leather-covered inch of him screams one thing to Della Costello—total heartbreak. It’s all men like him do, right? One hook-up, when he didn’t even know her name, was all she could afford.

Their one-time encounter should have stopped there. But an ex that causes problems for her business—and the mob’s—and Cory becomes her new shadow until the bullets quiet in the streets. It gets harder and harder to stay out of his bed.

They’ll walk a fine line.
And there is no mercy in this tragedy.

For love and lost blood, once more, Chicago will rage.

*

Pretty Lies is a standalone romantic suspense within Bethany-Kris’s Commission World.

“There was a boy once. A boy who wasn’t strong enough to save me when I was taken.”

“There was a girl once. A girl called Tess Snow who sat with me in the dark waiting to be sold.”

“There was an owner once. An owner who bought me, entrapped me, and made me his unwilling goddess.”

Eleanor Grace is a naïve dreamer. Trusting and young, she believes her book-loving boyfriend can save her when her freedom is snatched and sold. Squirreled away to an island at midnight, delivered to a man even darkness won’t touch, she’s bound by a contract.

Five men.

Five fantasies.

Five pieces of her soul.

Sullivan Sinclair is the giver of fantasies. Any wish, any desire—he is the master at quenching even the filthiest appetites. His private paradise and perfectly trained goddesses are there for one purpose: to ensure every guest is extremely well satisfied.

He bought her.

He trapped her.

She belongs to him.

“You’re saying you’re a loss?”

“I’m saying I’ll cause you untold problems if you keep me here.” I narrowed my eyes. “I’m not afraid of you.”

He stepped toward me quickly, crowding me, bringing naked, masculine flesh and scorching body heat.

I backpedalled, losing ground, hating myself the second I tripped.

He laughed coldly. “Not afraid? I think you’re fucking petrified.”

Digging my toes into the sand, I cocked my chin. “I meant what I said, Sully Sinclair. Keep me trapped against my consent and I will make you pay. I’ll find some way to curse—”

“Curse me?” His arm shot up, his hand sinking into my hair. In a single heartbeat, we went from apart to linked. His fingers curled tight around the strands, tugging my scalp, sending more chills scattering. “You’ve already cursed me. You cursed me the second you arrived.”

I tried to pull away, but his hold turned aggressive.

“Let me go.”

His eyes flashed navy in the darkness as his tongue ran over his bottom lip. “Let you go? I should, shouldn’t I?” His stare landed on my mouth, and lust became a sapphire fire in his gaze. “Too bad I’m not going to.”

Another sultry New Adult Romance from USA Today Bestseller Author Alexa Padgett.

From the moment I see Kate Grace, I can’t wait to find out if what they say about redheads is true… Not only are her wild ringlets entrancing, she’s sweet and sassy, with slower, sexier curves than a Texas back road.

Too bad she’s also country music star Camden Grace’s baby sister. Camden holds my chance at a comeback in his hands, and he doesn’t want me–or my bad attitude–anywhere near Kate.

I don’t have time for all these thoughts about Kate, anyway. I need to be focused on my son’s future. I’ll do anything for Ike. Anything.

Even if that means giving up my dreams of a music career and another chance to kiss Kate’s soft, luscious lips. Ike’s future–his ability to see–comes first. I promised, and my word is my vow. I’ll never, ever break it.

Yes, even if I have to give up a chance to work with the biggest names in the music industry, and even if I have to walk away from the only woman I’ll ever love…

Title: Almost Perfect
Author: Claudia Burgoa
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 16, 2020
Blurb
USA TODAY bestselling author Claudia Burgoa brings
readers a delightful new romantic comedy that’s equal parts hilarious and sexy
about friendship and learning how to fall in love!
  

Olympic medalist and X-game sensation Alex Spearman thinks
he’s perfect.
He’s not. I know his kind.

Rich, famous, and emotionally unavailable.

Well…He’s perfect enough to hook up with on the weekend of his sister’s
wedding.

His sister is my best friend. This is a disaster
in the making.

Did I mention he’s also hot, sexy and funny?

How can I resist?

After a steamy weekend, I agree. We have chemistry.

But it just won’t work out in the long run.

He’s just a fond memory. That is…until he moves next door.

When I’m in need, the almost perfect man offers to help.

On a “friends-only” basis.

“Just friends,” he said. Yeah, right.

Suddenly, Alex is getting too close for comfort.

Things are becoming heated … becoming too real for me.

Is this the real deal or am I another medal to him?

Excerpt

“Harry
Potter geek?”

She nods.
“Dad and I used to read the books when I was young. It’s our thing, you know?
We share our love for mythical creatures and magical worlds.” 

She smiles
widely. “When I was at my mother’s, I used to read the books by myself and
wished I was at Dad’s instead.”

“So now you
get to wear a unicorn necklace and look like a fairy?”

Suddenly, I
see darkness pushing her bright face. She grabs the handle and starts closing
the door. “Thank you again for everything.”

“I’m
supposed to stay with you and binge watch a series or just watch a rom-com,” I
say, showing her my arm where I scribbled my notes.

Her
expression smooths, and her lips slip into a charming grin. Her mouth is framed
by a pair of inviting dimples that enchant me.

“So tell me
about this first day,” I ask. “We could share some of the chocolate chip
cookies I got you.”

She steps
aside, inviting me in. “First experiences suck most of the time.”

“First
kisses never suck,” I tell her.

“Of course
they do,” she protests with conviction.

I brush a
strand of her hair, leaning forward. “There’s always that little moment of
hesitation. When everything is almost happening. Like, right when you’re about
to touch her lips,” I say, my lips are so close to hers. “You wait though.”

“What do
you wait for?” she asks with sweetness and innocence.

“For her to
step back or lean into the kiss.”

“What if
she doesn’t move?”

“That’s my
favorite,” I answer before I brush her soft lips with mine.

She gasps
as I dip my mouth to hers. This is pretty much like going down the slope at
high speed. I can’t stop, I can’t hesitate. One wrong move and it’s a bust. I
have to control every movement, lead her. Lean where I want us to go. I slide
my tongue across her lips, and she opens them while she wraps her arms around
my neck.

I don’t
rush it though. If this is the only kiss I get from Hannah, I want it to be
perfect. My heart hammers as our kiss leads to more than just demonstrating to
her that a first can be extraordinary.

The small
whimper she makes as I slide my hand around her waist and pull her into me gets
me worked up. I hold nothing back, and she doesn’t either. I move my lips to
her jawline, nibbling her soft skin all the way to her earlobe.

She tastes
sweet. Like lavender, vanilla, and honey. I could eat her. Nibble every inch of
her skin, drink her all.

As she
pushes her hips up against me, trying to get closer, my eyes open. Our gazes
connect. I want to consume her. All of her. The pain from climbing the tree is
gone, replaced by desire—a hunger I’ve never come across before.

I run a
hand through the back of her neck, my fingers curl around her skull, gripping
her head tightly.

“Waiting?”
she asks between shallow breaths.

I nod.
“You’re in charge, do you want me to continue?”

She rises
on her tiptoes, leaning closer. This time, I devour her. Our tongues tangle and
fuck if the fire isn’t consuming us.

Lust and
adrenaline rush through my veins. I run a hand up and down her round, tight
ass. My length is turning into a piece of steel. Throbbing, needy steel that
wants to slide inside her. A sexy moan escapes her lips as I move between her
thighs and push her against the door.

Her legs
wrap around my hips, and anything besides fucking her is off the table. There’s
no restraint. For her, or for myself.

I break the
kiss, gasping for some air. “Are you sure about this?”

“I have
this theory,” she says. “Being with a guy for the first time being awkward and
meh. Do you want to prove me wrong?”

“Challenge
accepted.”
