Release Blitz ~ The Terms by Ruby Rowe

 

 Title: The Terms: Part One
Series: The Terms Duet
Author: Ruby Rowe
Genres: Romantic Suspense, Erotica Romance, BDSM
 Release Date: April 27, 2017

I wanted to hate her. For three years, Camilla withheld the fact that my brother had a son, Liam.

Then, Tony died without ever knowing his kid, and I was going to make sure Ms. Rose paid a price for her deceit. I also wanted Liam to be raised as a Burke. Our family’s legacy was one to carry on, so the terms were straightforward.

Live in my home.

Allow me to help raise Liam.

Oh, and agree to be my submissive.

In return, I agreed not to rip Camilla’s child away from her. I also offered them both financial security and a life of luxury. It seemed generous to me. It might’ve been simple, too, had she not reminded me of the lady in red. The one who haunted my dreams at night. Camilla’s hazel eyes were a mirror image, her sweetness more than an acquaintance to my subconscious.

I was a hacker by trade, and the internet was my best friend, sharing with me every secret I wished to unearth. I believed that until an unfathomable truth revealed itself in a different way.

Some secrets are never whispered, only sensed by the heart, and all along, my soul held the truth. It hid even from me the most important secret of them all.

The Terms ends in a cliffhanger. It contains explicit language and graphic sex, including aspects of BDSM. The second novel in the duet, The Terms: Part Two, will release June 1st.

 

      

    

 

 

 

  

Excerpt from The Terms: Part One (The Terms Duet)
© Ruby Rowe 2017
Tears well up in my eyes, and my lower lip quivers. “Tony was right; you’re evil.”

His fingers grip my chin once again and press harder this time.

“I knew he’d cause me grief from the grave. You and Tony Jr. are interruptions I don’t need, but my parents deserve to know their only grandchild. For that reason, I’ll allow this situation to disrupt my world. Besides, it will be good to have another male to carry on the family name.”

“Please, leave us be. Let me raise Liam. I promise I’m a good mother. I struggle financially, but he’s always cared for and loved.” Desperation tips the scale, and my lukewarm tears tumble to my cool cheeks. Looking away, Ellis clears his throat and releases my chin.

“Money, right… I recommend you change the password to your bank account to something more challenging. It was quite easy to empty that miniscule nest egg of yours.”

From my dry throat, a sob emerges. He’s going to take Liam away and leave me homeless. I have no choice but to play by his rules, so I cough from my cry and suck in short breaths, attempting to collect my dignity. Sniffling, I pull a tissue from my purse and wipe my eyes.

“OK, I’ll do whatever you want. Please, please, don’t take my child from me.”

Snaking his fingers through my hair, his thumb skims along my cheekbone, wiping away the tears. He moves closer, his sultry breath inches from mine, and his eyes roam my face as if he’s admiring a gallery painting.

“There’s no need to cry. If you’re open to this, your life will be easier–better even. Do exactly as I say, and you won’t lose Liam.”

I should shove him away. Spit in his face. Anything other than what I’m doing, which is leaning into his hand at my cheek to savor his touch. I’m emotionally fucked in the head, always finding myself attracted to the villain instead of someone nice, like my friend Christopher, for instance.

As if Ellis feels something, too, he withdraws his hand. “First, you’re going to quit your job.”

COLTON

I tried to keep my distance. I knew how much trouble Summer could cause me once she was, in her words, “legal.” She wouldn’t accept that being my best friend’s sister meant she was governed by another set of laws.

She was the forbidden fruit.

The “off-limits” trophy prize I couldn’t win.

The “don’t look and sure as hell don’t touch” female in my life.

But Summer pushed until I was backed into a corner. My hands and mouth had nowhere to go but on her. That was my story, and I was stickin’ to it.

SUMMER

I’d known Colton Graham all my life, and he was always a pest … until he wasn’t. That handsome face and masculine body he grew into became hard to look away from, and the more he matured and distanced himself from me, the more I wanted him close.

Since I’d grown up with a brother, I knew how college guys operated. Relationships were off the table, and fine by me; I only wanted two adventurous months with Colton. I knew he wouldn’t be my last, but I was hell-bent on making him my first. What was the harm in that? I could do casual … or so I thought.

Summer Trouble is a Ruby Romp Novella, meaning it contains insta-lust, along with an abundance of dirty talk and graphic sex. It can typically be enjoyed in one reading, so get ready for a fast-paced “get your panties wet” ride.

 

  

 

Q: “Where do you get the ideas for your books?” – Author Autumn Sand

A: I come up with the ideas for my books in several ways. Sometimes, I can’t explain why a character or storyline appears in my mind, and other times, an idea evolves from personalities or situations I have a desire to write about.

There are certain types of people and lifestyles I’ve never been exposed to, but I’m curious about them, so I often build stories around those personalities or situations. For example, after reading novels with wealthy, affluent alpha-male heroes, I wanted to try writing about one, so I created a story around that type of man.

Other times, there is a life lesson or topic I want to expose readers to. Like under my pen name Scarlet Wolfe, I wrote a story about self-harm to shed light on that subject.

I admit to living vicariously through my stories and characters. I mean, isn’t that a big reason why people read? We’re eavesdropping on a life we’ll likely never live.

Q: “How did you get started writing?” – Reader Amber Dover

A: Unlike a lot of authors who say they’ve been writing all their lives, I had never tried to write anything other than what was assigned to me in school. A few of my friends insisted I read Fifty Shades of Grey, and I actually laughed because I’d never read anything racy before.

Once I finished the series, I found myself creating characters in my mind at random moments. From there, I started thinking of a premise. A friend of mine at the time had written a couple of books, and once I shared with her that I had all of these thoughts crowding my head, she encouraged me to type them out.

That’s how my other pen name, Scarlet Wolfe, came about. Sometimes I wish I had known more about writing when I began, but on the other hand, naivety got me to take that first step. I don’t think I would’ve written a book had I known the challenges that would lie ahead.

Q: “What’s your favorite thing about each character?” – Reader Sarah Vadermillen

A: In The Terms, my favorite thing about my hero, Ellis, is how vulnerable and kind he truly is beneath his hardened exterior. As far as Camilla, she’s strong and protective, especially in regard to her family. I love that in a heroine. Greyson, Ellis’s cousin, is witty, and I look forward to showing more of that in part two of The Terms. I don’t like Christopher, and if my readers don’t either, then I’ve written his character well. We don’t know much about Sasha, but I look forward to showing her grow and strengthen in the next book, and Liam … well, he’s just happy and adorable.

Q: “What is your favorite part of the process of writing books?” – Author Autumn Sand

A: My favorite part of the writing process is character development. I strive for my characters to have a deeper level of emotional intelligence by the end of their journey. I want to evoke from my readers the same feelings I show in my characters. If my readers can connect emotionally with my characters when they’re nothing like them, then I’ve done something right

Ruby Rowe began writing in January of 2013 under the pen name Scarlet Wolfe,

releasing contemporary and young adult. She soon tried her hand at writing erotica

romance and fell in love with the genre.

The pen name Ruby Rowe came about in 2017 when she decided it best to keep her

racier books separate from her young adult romances. She’d like to branch out and

release straight erotica, however, she’s a romantic at heart, and believes it will be

difficult not to include romance in every story.

When not writing, Ruby reads naughty books about possessive, hot alpha males. She has

an addiction to Pinterest, pinning all the sensual photos she can find. She loves bacon,

coffee, and other flavors of ice cream besides vanilla. 😉 She hopes her writing will allow

her readers a reprieve from the real world, giving them an opportunity to live out their

fantasies.

Description

“She wants to get Wilde. She should be careful what she asks for.” –Ethan Wilde

There are worse things in life than owning a thriving business in the heart of Manhattan and being labeled one of the Big Apple’s most eligible bachelors. Trust me, I know. I’ve had some bad $h!t go down before I got to where I am.

No matter what curve balls life lobs at me, I take a swing. If I strike out, I learn, adjust, and make the best of it. For instance, when an injury ended my dream of playing in the Bigs, I could’ve sunken into self-pity. When my fiancée dumped me about thirty seconds after the major league scout did, I could’ve become a drunk. Instead, I got off my ass, finished my senior year of college, and put the degree my baseball scholarship earned me to work.

Seven years later, I’m living a new dream. I’m single, well off, and about to take my business to the next level. I’ve got plans for A Pound of Flesh Fitness gyms to open nationwide.

Except the one person standing between me and my dream has become a fantasy. A hot, redheaded fantasy. My competition…my business enemy, is five feet nothing and packed full of dynamite, and I can’t get her out of my mind or my fantasies. Her sexy as sin body, her sultry voice, and her bold personality that’s just as fiery as her hair may have gotten under my skin, but there’s no way I’ll let her stay there.

Because no one gets to Ethan Wilde.

There’s just one little detail I can’t stop wondering about. The one thing that has brought men down since the beginning of time. I can’t leave it alone until I know for sure: Is she a true redhead?

Bestselling author Shelly Alexander brings you this brand new series of super sexy, sizzling hot heroes. It’s a fun, flirty, and dirty series written in the male POV.

If you like your romance hot and fun, then grab a comfy spot under a fan and enjoy! If you like them sweeter with a touch of steam, try Shelly Alexander’s Red River Series.

Blog Tour ~ His Family Of Convenience by Amy Ayers

Meet the Author:

Amy Ayers remembers writing her first fiction as an introspective tween in rainy Portland, Oregon. She took a break from writing to move with her family to the desert of Phoenix, Arizona. She graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Women’s Studies which lends itself to writing strong, opinionated heroines. She has worked as an Editor, a Job-Skills Trainer, and as an Executive Assistant. She even spent a college semester writing articles for the Tombstone Epitaph in the town ‘too tough to die’. She currently divides her time between her writing, her family (including one husband, four boys and two dogs), and her daily commute to work. A life-long lover of literature, she began writing her own contemporary romance in earnest in 2014 and is thrilled to be published with Entangled. She hopes to win the lottery someday so that she can devote all of her time to writing; until then, she writes when she can.

About the Book:

Senna Callas’s one-night stand with her alpha asshole boss, Marco Medina, was supposed to mark the end of her internship and their ridiculous attraction. After being unreachable and ignoring Senna for a year, Marco sweeps back into the country and summons her to his

office, revealing he knows her secret…the secret created during their explosive night together.

Marco is determined to be there for the son he’s just discovered he has, but when it comes to being with Senna, his choices aren’t his own. His meddling family expects him, the firstborn son, to follow through with the arranged marriage set up when he was a child. And Senna has no plans on being his mistress and still resents how her attempts to contact Marco were ignored. The only thing going right between them is the attraction that burns no matter the complicated situation they’re in.

Marco would do anything to protect his family, anything except decide between the legacy he was born into and the young family he’s just found…

Excerpt 

“He’s not just your son, or even our son. He’s part of a lineage, a birthright that demands certain behavior. Any Medina heir should be raised knowing our place in the world and the responsibility we have to the men, women, and children of Barcelona and Girona.”

Senna watched as Max tried valiantly to detach the probably solid gold links from the cuffs of what was certainly a custom shirt.

“That’s an incredible amount of pressure to put on yourself…and on a baby.”

His voice hardened again. “Max is a Medina. He’s the firstborn of a firstborn. He will fulfill his duties. That’s the way it’s been done for centuries.”

“It sounds like a prison sentence. What if he wants to be a doctor or a rock star or something?”

Marco’s laugh was harsh. “Firstborn sons don’t get to have dreams, princesa.”

She glanced at Max playing happily in his father’s lap, his big, expressive brown eyes taking in all the shiny newness that was Marco. So precious and innocent. Then the doubt hit her like a vicious punch. What have I sentenced him to?

“It’s not all bad, Senna. I love what I do, and I think I’m pretty good at it.”

“Yes, but if you had a choice, would this have been it?”

“I don’t know. Probably. I mean, I think every little boy has dreams of growing up and fighting fires or flying fighter jets.” His smile was thin.

She sighed. “I wanted to train dolphins at SeaWorld. So I get it. Plans change. Life happens.”

“For a Medina the plan is set. And it’s an honor and a privilege. Max will grow to see that one day.”

“Just like you have?”

“Yes.” His answer was firm, resolute.

He finally stood up to face her, but he didn’t relinquish the baby. His features were fixed and stony. His eyes flashed with fire, his words tumbled out low and foreboding.

“Senna, I want Max to meet his family in Girona.”

“Okay. I’m sure we can arrange something.”

“I want to take him to Spain with me. Today.”

She stood to face him, panic consuming her.

“You can’t just take him, Marco. We can work out some sort of agreement, but he doesn’t go anywhere without me.”

“Fine, Senna. In that case, let me tell you what is going to happen.”

This should be good.

 

Marco is the CEO of his family empire. Senna is the sweet and sexy intern that has caught his attention, but Marco doesn’t mix business and pleasure. What could happen if he gave in to temptation? Senna disappears the morning after only to find out that she is pregnant. She tries to get in touch with him but he is gone and no one will help her reach him.

Senna is taking care of Max and bartending to make ends meet when who shows up at the bar but sexy Marco. He wants to take care of Max but where will Senna fit in after all Marco is the first born in a traditional family that believes in arranged marriages and loyalty to family.

This is the first book in the Medina Legacy Series and I look forward to the next installment in the series.

Release Blitz ~ Snaring Angus by Adrienne Dunning

Title: Snaring Angus
Series: A Captain’s Folly Novel
Author: Adrienne Dunning
Genre: Women’s Fiction Romance 
Release Date: April 25, 2017

Angus Donaghue and Kerry Hunter have spent their entire lives in the coastal Scottish village of North Berwick–battling wits and hurling insults. It was just the way of things. 

Yet, Angus begins to question himself when his mates in The Captain’s Folly suggest a different type of connection to his life-long nemesis. 

In between her three jobs and caring for her terminally ill mother, Kerry finds herself still trading barbs with the sarcastic drummer every night during her bartending shift at The Ship’s Inn Tavern. But here was the problem –what are you supposed to do when the one person you can’t get off your mind is the one person who gets on your last nerve? 

What is it they say? All’s fair in love and war? 

Forget that…it’s all complicated in love and war.

Adrienne Dunning is simply a Southern gal who has fun playing poorly at golf when she’s not crafting novels. She loves all forms of expression—writing, dancing, cooking, talking—and does them frequently and with abandon. She creates endearing and feisty characters full of humor and just a little awkwardness to “keep them real”. Although a possible mystery series is under current exploration, her current works are primarily aligned with the contemporary romance/chick lit genres. Seeking Solace, her debut novel which released in April 2015, is the prequel to The Captain’s Folly Series releasing spring/summer 2017, which explores the stories of three male characters in the debut novel. She also has published Revolution, which is a contemporary romance with a paranormal twist.

Excerpt:

He sniffed the air and gagged when smoky air filled his nostrils.  It smelled like a campfire without the marshmallows.  He had to cough to clear his throat.  That’s when the sweet scent of something he couldn’t place hit his senses and made his heart speed up.  His entire body responded to the scent.  It wasn’t flowery, but it was distinctly feminine.

Hearing the sound again, he recognized it was a heart beating.  He opened his eyes and jumped out of his bed, ready to defend himself.

He panicked when his eyes focused on his surroundings and he realized that he wasn’t in his bedroom.  He was standing next to a large bed with black sheets.  Sitting on the edge of the bed was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.  He was momentarily dazed by her lovely blue eyes.  She appeared startled, but gave him a guarded smiled.

She didn’t speak right away, which was fine by him.  He was too busy examining her long black hair and red lips.  She had an unusual formal dress that made her look like a Goth girl, except it showed off her pale skin all the way to her stomach.  He tried not to stare at her cleavage, but she was a welcomed sight after seeing the intimidating man in the woods.

“Where am I?” he finally asked, deciding it was time to speak to the gorgeous woman.

“You’re somewhere safe,” she said.  This time she gave him a full-blown smile that reached her eyes.

“Who are you?” he asked bluntly.

“I’m Anjali, Burke’s daughter.  He called me after what happened.  He thought that I might be able to help you,” she said softly.

He didn’t know Burke had any kids, but after seeing his daughter, he understood why he would hide her away.  He wondered why Burke had called her, unless she was a zookeeper.

He gulped as the events of the day came rushing back.  He remembered lying in the tub and seeing his skin split open to reveal white fur.  He saw Burke’s bleak expression when he explained the awful truth of his situation.  He heard Dylan sobbing and apologizing for getting him into this mess.  The incident in the park seemed like a bad dream, but his transformation felt like a horror movie.

Feeling like his legs would give out he slumped down on the bed.  “I really thought it was all a dream,” he sighed, putting his hand over his mouth.  “Everything is so jumbled; I can’t remember things in the right sequence.  I really turned into a wolf, didn’t I?”

She nodded.  “Yes, you did.  You were attacked by a wolf named Fenris…”

He quickly stood up and put up his hand to stop her.  “It has a name?” he asked skeptically.

She bit her lip and scooted closer.

A man, whom he hadn’t noticed before, was suddenly standing next to him with a Beretta 9mm aimed at his head.  Liam quickly thought of a way to disarm the man, but Anjali stood up and put her hand on the man’s other arm.  “This is Calin, and he’s not going to shoot you,” she replied.

“Then why is he pointing a gun at me?” Liam asked defensively.  His body was still coiled, ready to punch Calin and take his gun.

Anjali glared at Calin.  “That’s his way of saying hello.”  She tilted her head and motioned for Calin to back away.

“I see,” Liam said cautiously.

Calin, thankfully, lowered his gun and sat down on a red plush chair across the room.

Liam vaguely wondered why he only heard the thumping of one heart, but decided that he didn’t want to question it; otherwise, he would have to question why he could clearly hear someone’s heart beating.

He shook his head and stared at the woman.  “I have no idea what’s going on, but if you have a way to fix this, I’m listening.”  He looked at Calin from the corner of his eye to make sure he was still on the couch.

She cleared her throat and smiled.  “Liam, there is a lot you need to learn about Fenris and why this is happening.  Unfortunately, I’m not sure where or how to begin because I don’t have all the answers.  I can only tell you what I know so far.  First of all, I’m sorry to say that you can’t go back to your old life.  When Fenris’ venom entered your body, it changed you permanently.  If you go back home, you might hurt or kill someone accidentally.  You could shift and become the wolf without thinking, which is why I prefer you to stay here.  Secondly, Fenris will do anything to find you.  I don’t know what he wants from you exactly, but he creates followers called, die Drei.  They are very loyal to him and they will do whatever he asked of them.  Please understand that Fenris is the bad guy, so you have to find a way to fight him no matter what he says to you.  Lastly, I need you to trust that I will do everything I can to keep you safe and to keep you from losing yourself to the wolf.  There is a very real possibility that the wolf could take over your thoughts and feelings.  If you aren’t careful, Liam could disappear,” she said sadly.

He ran his hand through his hair and scrubbed his face.  “This is ridiculous!  How could my life have gone to crap so quickly?  I didn’t ask for any of this.  At no point did I ever say, hey I want to work for a giant scary man who can turn into a wolf.  There has to be a way to stop this.  I don’t want to hurt anyone and I don’t want to be anyone’s follower.  What am I supposed to do?” he asked, frustrated by what she was saying.  A sudden flood of emotions overwhelmed him, though anger quickly made its way to the forefront.

Exclusive Excerpt:

 

When I turned out of the parking lot a breeze floated in carrying the scent of smoke with it. I wrinkled my nose and glanced around – seeing a dark cloud from behind me I whipped the car around, hit the button on my mic and called into dispatch.

“37041, 10-70 seems to be coming from the gas station or the motel, please advise. Over”

“10-69, 37041, no calls at this time. Copy?” Drew replied.

“10-4,” I said as I gunned the engine. I took the next corner and as soon as I was in sight of the gas station my heart stopped. It was up in flames. Not just little tiny flames. It was engulfed. I slammed on my brakes and jumped out the car, popping the trunk and grabbing my gear. I shoved my feet in the boots, yanked up my pants and flipped the suspenders around my shoulders before I hit the mic again.

“Dispatch, 37041, 10-78, the station is up in flames.”

I yanked my jacket on, securing it quickly before I pulled the hood on as a message came from dispatch, “37041, do not proceed until backup arrives. We’ve signaled the fire brigade. ETA three minutes. More back up in route as well.”

“10-74, there is one person for sure in there. I won’t let her die in there!”

“Jackson, they’ll be there in three minutes, don’t be a hero!” I heard Drew’s snarl come across the radio and I scoffed.

Three minutes in that inferno and the whole place would come crashing down. No way was I waiting. I knew it was against protocol, but fuck protocol. Kristol was in there. How did I know that? Easy, she wasn’t outside already. I’d been here not two hours ago and she’d been working alone as usual.

Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

I had no idea where she would be in there, that was the tricky part. I’d just have to do a grid pattern as best as I could. About the time I slid my helmet on the front window of the place blew. I ducked, but as soon as it was clear I took off running as fast as I could. I could barely see inside. The roar of the fire was deafening. I busted out the rest of the front window and made my way inside, calling out to Kristol. Thankfully it didn’t take but a few long strides before I found her.

“Jesus,” I heard her croke and the dog yap. I got her over my shoulder only to have her let out a heart stopping scream.

Shit.

“I’m sorry, baby, hold on. I got ya,” I had no time to second guess myself.

I was praying as I scooped the dog up that we made it out of here in one piece. Now, I had to worry about my actions hurting her more. The roof was caving in before I could get us out the door. There was a sharp pain that ran through me, Kristol let out a pained shriek and the dog yelped. Fucking fantastic. I made it out the door, only to collapse myself. I couldn’t breathe and somewhere in that mess I lost my fucking helmet. I cursed as I saw the others pull up. I covered her body and the dog as another piece of the building collapsed.

Within seconds there were hands grabbing at me and I was pulled off of her. It took me a few minutes to get my bearings as I was shoved down on the back of the fire truck.

“You idiot, I told you not to be a fucking hero. Asshole,” Drew mumbled on as he shoved an oxygen mask over my face. I gave him the middle finger and took in a deep breath. I heard Kristol’s dog yelp and I stood up, tossing the mask off as I moved around the truck. My shoulder was on fire but I didn’t care. I had to get to her.

“Someone get the fucking dog out of the way,” one of the new EMT’s yelled.

“Hold up, the dog stays with her,” I coughed out a breath and cursed myself for not grabbing the full mask before I went into that station. “He’s her emotional support dog. He’s in training.” Yeah, I was winging it, but I knew what he did for her. I didn’t give two fucks what they thought.

“Jackson Landry, get your ass back over here,” I again ignored my brother as I jogged to the ambulance and lifted Thor up into my arms. I hissed in pain and took a deep breath as I swayed slightly. “Man, you’re hurt,” I heard the concern in Drew’s voice.

“I’m going with her. I’ll get checked out after she does,” I said climbing up into the back of the ambulance. Thankfully Lufkin was only eighteen minutes away, ten or so the way these fellas drove. I held Thor, looking him over, wincing as he whined.

“I‘m sorry buddy, we’ll get you all patched up too. I promise,” I said soothing him and myself. It was a small cut, he’d be okay, it was Kristol I was worried about.

~Meet Barb Shuler~

 

I’m a Carolina Girl by right and a Texan by birth. Best of both worlds. I have the brass sass to keep up with my Texas sized temper. Living and working in both states I’ve learned a lot about hard work, adapting to your surroundings and making the best of the path that you have been led down. My grandma Dollie once told me I would know what I was meant to do when it happened. She was right, as always.

As with most book lovers, I am an avid reader. Reading has always been a hobby – a passion, really and a way to get lost in other people’s lives, their drama and other worlds. It’s a private movie in your imagination that you get to cast and navigate through, at your own pace. Reading helps to expand the perimeters of one’s mind. That is what got me into writing. Writing has been something that I have done since I was a kid. If I had paper, I was writing. Nine out of ten times it made no sense but what are words if they are not to be used to your advantage? Words are a part of us all. Why not use them, right?

During the day I work as a ‘desk jockey’ and help the residents of my county navigate themselves around our little, but not too little country town. By night I am either blogging with my best friends, doing PA work for some of my favorite authors or fighting with the voices in my head. They can be stubborn at times. It’s a blessing and I am cherishing every moment. Tomorrow is never guaranteed so I want to make sure I live the day as fully as possible. For what is my creation, can become someone else’s treasure.

Release Blitz ~ Virgin for the Trillionaire by Ruth Cardello

Prince Ballasare Stephan Demande needs a bride before his thirtieth
birthday or he’ll lose his crown. Unlike their barbarian twin island,
Rubare Virgina’s royal family is above kidnapping and murdering as a
means of choosing their queens. Historically, they’ve cultivated their
own selection, ensuring the purity and perfection of each. Prince
Ballasare wants more, so he comes up with a plan. It’s genius really. He
invites three hundred of the most beautiful and intelligent virgins
from around the world to his island under the guise of attending a
conference. Those who are willing to stay and participate in a series of
tests are offered a chance to win one million dollars. He can only
imagine the joy that the woman he chooses will feel when she discovers
he and his title are the real prize.

Jessica Quincy is at a
crossroads career wise. She hadn’t expected anyone to actually read her
blog posts about her lonely life. She certainly hadn’t expected Virgin
Territory to go viral. But who can stay a virgin forever? And what does a
woman do when she’s no longer what she’s made a career out of writing
about? She takes a risk, that’s what. Jessica attends a conference that
promises to end with one participant winning a million dollars. Any
ex-virgin could start over with that kind of money.
 She makes him laugh.
He scares, infuriates, and totally turns her on.

Unfortunately, on Rubare Virgina, being chosen by a sexy prince can have deadly consequences if you haven’t updated your blog.

Like
the first novella trilogy, Taken by a Trillionaire, these novellas are
escapism fantasy. If you are looking for a historically accurate
representation of a monarchy or a serious depiction of how royals
maintain their bloodlines, neither trilogies are for you. If you love
larger than life characters and fun storylines that take you to exotic
places with sexy alpha men, then welcome to our imaginary kingdoms. The
men are insanely rich, the traditions are potentially deadly, and the
sex will leave you craving a night on this dark isle.

 Taken By a Trillionaire
Three New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors.
One wild project.Taken
by a Trillionaire is an escapism fantasy that was born at a party at
RWA. Over cocktails, J.S. Scott, Melody Anne, and Ruth Cardello laughed
as they plotted this book with the help of two industry friends, Chris
and Brian.

If you are looking for a historically
accurate representation of a monarchy or a serious depiction of how
royals maintain their bloodlines, this may not be the book for you. If
you love larger than life characters and fun storylines that take you to
exotic places with sexy alpha men, then welcome to our imaginary
kingdom: Rubare Collina. The men are insanely rich, the traditions are
potentially deadly, and the sex will leave you craving a night on this
dark isle.

If you’ve ever fantasized about what it
would be like to be swept off your feet—or tossed over a prince’s
shoulder and taken—then you’ll enjoy our trilogy.

Novella One: Xander by Ruth Cardello 

Royal
Prince Xander Demande needs to choose a wife before his thirtieth
birthday, or he will lose his crown. His list of potential candidates is
long but shortens to one woman after a brief encounter with the
socially inept, but beautiful and brilliant, Dr. Reanna Fielding. She
never thought Prince Charming would come for her. He never thought any
woman would melt his heart. Love makes its own rules, but will it save
her when she defies not only him but the laws of his kingdom? In Rubare
Collina, a marriage proposal can be a dream come true—or a death
sentence.

Novella Two: Bryan by J.S. Scott 

Get
married . . . or die. Prince Bryan Demande was left with only two
unpalatable choices. When he decides to take his chances rather than
marry, his father and the busybody royal adviser take matters into their
own hands.

Like it or not, Bryan is delivered a
kidnapped bride, and it isn’t a woman who’s a total stranger. She’s an
American female who has haunted his dreams for the last five years, the
only woman who has ever wanted him without his trillions of dollars or
his royal title. Suddenly, marriage doesn’t look like such a bad option
to Bryan, but he’ll have to convince his angry, kidnapped, bride-to-be
that she belongs with him.

Novella Three: Chris by Melody Anne

Christopher
Demande wants nothing to do with marriage and is willing to renounce
his title to the throne to prove it. That is until he meets independent
Adara Burnadette and decides he must have her. Unfortunately, Adara is
opposed to marriages of convenience. So what does a young prince do when
his chosen bride refuses his proposal? He kidnaps her of course.

pink rose compressed Author Bio

jeannette-pic

Jeannette Winters is a romance author mixing heart, intrigue, and the steamy pleasure of a Billionaire romance.

Jeannette grew up in a large family, number ten out of eleven children, eight of them being older brothers. She quickly developed a great sense of humor, mostly from necessity. One of her greatest joys is sitting on the porch where they were all raised and hearing the stories from years gone by. Quietly laughing to herself, she notices how they embellish the stories more and more each year.

Storytelling was passed down from her grandfather and mother. Jeannette caught the bug at a very young age. If she didn’t have her head in a book, then she was off somewhere with a notebook, jotting down stories of what she would write if one day she became an author. Although the notebook may have vanished, the stories are still vivid and waiting for the right time to be told.

Despite having an amazing family, there have also been some sorrows in her life, including the loss of loved ones. Over the years, Jeannette has spent countless hours volunteering for different organizations and acting as a caregiver to those most dear to her. As a result, supporting the elderly became of utmost importance.
