Blog Tour & Giveaway: Becoming by Jourdyn Kelly (Contemporary Romance)



Title: Becoming 
Author: Jourdyn Kelly 
Release Date: July 1st, 2018 
Genre: Lesbian Contemporary Romance 
Cover Designer – Jourdyn Kelly 



Rebecca Cuinn lost control of her life once before, and she spent many years learning how to take it back. As Mistress and owner of an exclusive BDSM club, Rebecca now had control by the balls. She wasn’t about to lose it again by falling in love. Unfortunately, her heart wasn’t playing by Rebecca’s rules. She always was a sucker for androgynous, sexy women. But did the one that threatened to make her break all her rules have to be so young?
Cass Giles defied authority. So, when she was dragged to a BDSM sex club for a bachelorette party, she refused to let go of her judgments and have fun. No way she would submit to someone who’s sole purpose was to hurt you. Just wasn’t her scene. That is until that “scene” included the mysterious Mistress. Now Cass was willingly breaking the rules just for a taste of Mistress’s punishment. But it wasn’t just Mistress she wanted. She wanted the woman underneath the mask. And she would do everything she could to prove they were meant to be.




Her breath caught, and her chest tightened when she saw one particular club-goer. This was someone she had never seen before, and part of her wished she had missed seeing the tall woman now. Her body’s response was too intense to be good for her. With a shaking hand, she pressed the intercom button on the wall next to her. “Yes, Mistress?” “Bring me the files on the entire Loring party.” At least her voice hadn’t betrayed the chaos she felt inside. Less than a minute later, there was a knock at her door. “Enter.” “The files, Mistress.” “Thank you, Carlie.” Once she was alone again, she began sifting through the files. “You shouldn’t be doing this,” she told herself. It didn’t stop her. Nothing stopped her until she came to the one photo she was looking for. A scan of the attached copy of the driver’s license gave her the information she was looking for. “Cassidy Giles. Oh God, she’s only twenty-five!” Mistress tossed the file aside, determined to forget about the incredibly hot, tall, androgynous woman. She couldn’t care less how the black jeans made that ass look. Or how the crisp, white button-up shirt was unbuttoned dangerously low. And, she certainly wasn’t thinking about fisting her hands in that short, dark hair. Nope.

 


I’ve been in Houston, Texas, writing novels and designing websites since 2009. Moving here was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, because I’ve been able to live wonderfully, and write my heart out. I’ve always enjoyed the arts in one form or another. Music sets the mood, reading stimulates my brain, and writing allows me to utilize my imagination in any way I want. I’ve been writing stories since I was a teen, and figured out it was my passion when I finished my first novel, Something About Eve.
I love being captivated by books that lead me into different, exotic places, and through impossible scenarios. I love being able to become someone else for a time. Reading has always inspired me to bring my own characters out to play. My hope is that my writing will inspire others, or at the least, give them a way to escape from everyday life for a little while.
If I'm not writing or reading, I'm training for triathlons. It's a good way to challenge my body the way I challenge my brain when writing. I'm not the greatest at it, but not only do I do it for the challenge, I do it for charity. It's a good motivation.

Release Blitz: Forever Your Touch: A Manwhore Series Novel by Apryl Baker (Contemporary Romance)


Title: Forever Your Touch
Series: A Manwhore Series Book 4
Author: Apryl Baker
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 10, 2018
Publisher: Limitless Publishing





Mason Kincaid is a player.
He learned from the best—his brothers. He knows he’s a good-looking bastard and isn’t afraid to use his baby face on the ladies. 
Life is sweet until he receives a call from his best friend begging Mason to look out for his baby sister, Josephine. A babysitting job is not on his list of things to do, but Keith is like a brother to him, and he can’t say no.
Then he meets Josephine and feels like a fifteen-year-old fanboy. Josephine isn’t just Keith’s little sister—she’s Mason’s favorite YouTuber, and Keith damn well knew it. The bastard probably laughed his ass off.
Celebrity crush or not, he takes his role as her fill-in big brother seriously, and he immediately understands Keith’s dislike of Jo’s self-centered boyfriend. The more time Mason spends with her, the harder it is not to beat the asshole black and blue. 
And the harder it is to guard his heart. 
Before long, the player is played. He falls in love with a woman who is not only taken, but seems to truly love her boyfriend.
But Mason is a Kincaid, and Kincaids don’t back down. He’s determined to change his manwhore ways and show Jo what it means to be treated right, cared for, and loved, even though she fights him with every breath. 
Can he convince her to listen to her heart before it’s too late—and they lose the one thing they’ll never find again?




So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.

Now, I live in small town in WV where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Synopsis

A deadly pandemic. Five groups of survivors. One destination.

“The funny thing about fight-or-flight was that sometimes flight didn’t cooperate when fight failed you. There was always freeze, but no one ever talked about freeze, because no one ever wanted to admit they weren’t strong enough to fight and were too scared to flee.”—Idaho survivor

“She had killed two of those men and not shed a tear. Even as she replayed it in her head, she felt no remorse. No, it was more than that. She was glad… happy she had done it. She wasn’t sure she knew who she was anymore..”—California survivor.

“If the human race was to survive, they’d have to dig deep and find the strength to take back their homes.”—Florida survivor

“She moved on to the bed to lay beside him and leaned in so their heads were touching and held on to him until his last breath. ‘Be at peace, Dave, and keep a seat warm for me.’”—Massachusetts survivor.

“Eric’s voice was distant, as if water had filled her ears. The room was too stuffy, too small. Rising, she shook her head and turned, fleeing from the place she had lost Shawn.”—Indiana survivor.

A deadly virus born of good intentions ravages the planet, leaving humans on the bottom of the food chain as the infected mutate into creatures born of myth and nightmares.

As the military sets out to gather the healthy inside the walls of a biolab located in the central United States, the fight for survival begins for anyone willing to step beyond the safety of their own front door.

Follow five groups of survivors as they journey from California, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, and Massachusetts in an epic journey to find, not only what’s left of their government, but their independence, true love, and the strength to survive in a world bent on breaking them.

Deadly Games
Karen Rock
(Dallas After Dark)
Publication date: July 17th 2018
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
ONE NIGHT ONLY
Special Agent Katherine Bowden doesn’t do girls’ nights out. She doesn’t do blazing hot dances with male strippers or unbelievable, uninhibited one-night-stands. If you ask her ex, all she does is work: study evidence, profile criminals, track them down. And now Katherine’s back home in Dallas, with a new set of all-male colleagues second-guessing her every move, and a possible serial killer hunting women just like her. But just this once, Katherine is going to try all those things she doesn’t do . . .
Growing up on the Reservation led Nash Hawkins down paths he’d rather forget. When his dream of joining the police force was crushed, he turned his hard body and wicked imagination into a meal ticket. His chemistry with Katherine is like nothing he’s ever felt. And though he’s sure a woman like her won’t want to get seriously involved with him, Nash knows things—things that might help catch a killer.
Nash and Katherine can save lives, if they put aside the desire that torments them both. But the closer they get, the more they have to lose . . .
“A highly entertaining and cohesive suspense novel with an emotionally satisfying romance that will keep readers glued to the page.”
