Blog Tour – Didn’t You Promise – Amber Bardan

 

 

 

The darkly seductive Bad for You series continues with a romance that Harlequin Junkie notes “will appease fans who have been patiently (or impatiently) waiting for the final surprisingly sweet and tender outcome.”

 

He always keeps his promises.
Angelina has sacrificed everything to be with the man she loves. Forced to abandon her family, and even her own identity, Angelina depends on Haithem as never before. With no more secrets between them, Haithem has become the source of all her needs. Sexually. Emotionally.
But not even Haithem can hide forever.
While they’re sneaking across borders, avoiding persecution from everyone who would see Haithem dead and his prototype stolen, the media fascination surrounding Angelina’s disappearance continues to mount.
For Angelina, it’s a brutal reminder of what she’s left behind and the pain she’s caused to those who believe her dead or held against her will.
To Haithem, it’s a warning: he stands to lose the one person left in his life he loves beyond measure. The hunt won’t be called off until his enemies have destroyed him, his life’s work and everyone involved—including Angelina.
He has only one choice. He’s promised to protect her. And Haithem always keeps his promises.

 

 

   “Tell me your name.”
   I blinked, the blunt beautiful features above me coming into focus. “Angel—”
“Not that one.”
   My skin prickled. I knew what he wanted. We’d been through this enough times.
   “Lina Kyriakou.”
   He walked into me, his hips touching mine, forcing me backwards. “And who are you, Lina?”
   My back brushed the wall, the surface cool through the light fabric on my back.
   I moistened my lips, my pulse fluttering so fiercely in my throat I almost expected to start spitting out butterflies. He’d coaxed me to say it before—the details of this first scenario.
   My favorite of all the scenarios and plans we’d memorized.
   Still the words made my tongue stick. I looked at him. Looked right into his midnight irises.
   “I’m your wife.”
   The fingers cupping the back of my neck flexed, and a rush of breath kissed my lips.
   “You know I almost believed you that time.” His thick lashes drooped. “One more time. Who are you?”
   My chest constricted. “I’m your wife.”
   “That’s right, you’re my wife,” he said, no hint of a lie to taint his words.
   He didn’t need to roll the statement around to test it the way I’d had to. He spoke as though he believed it.
   As though it were true.
   Made me think that to him, he and I and this fantasy of a future were simply a matter of time. Almost made me forget that this was only one scenario, and only one of Haithem’s plans for us. Few were so sweet, and not all resulted in us together through all of this.
   “Let’s go over things one more time.”
   My fingers twitched against his T-shirt. “I thought we were in a rush?”
   “We can spare time to make sure.”
   “I remember everything we talked about.”
   His teeth flashed in that dangerous smile. “Could you remember under pressure?” His hand slipped from my neck and ran down my shoulder, skimmed my breast and gripped the thin belt at my waist. “Because if you need to repeat anything we’ve been through, you can bet you’ll be under pressure.”
   Heat curled through my system. “One more time then.” Short breaths, almost pants, puffed between my lips. “And be sure to exert some pressure.

About the Book

Blurb

HeirOfLocksley

Robin of Locksley is a rebel, more comfortable roaming Sherwood Forest with his longbow and courting the village girls than learning how to run a manor.

An innocent flirtation with a peasant girl soon lands Robin in trouble, and worse, he finds himself inexplicably attracted to Will Scathelock, his best friend since childhood. Robin must decide whether to follow the rules of society or his own conscience.

Meanwhile, his neighbour, Guy of Gisborne, is anxious to get his hands on the Locksley estate and he will do anything to make it happen – even murder.

Excerpt

The outlaws led them to a clearing right in the heart of Sherwood. One of the men threw some extra kindling on the remnants of a fire and coaxed it back to life. Robin was grateful for the warmth as well as the light.

Gilbert White-hand removed his jerkin, and Robin saw that his arm from elbow to hand was marred with a pattern of white scars. Robin recognised them as marks from a branding iron, a punishment meted out to those breaking the harsh forest laws. He now knew how the outlaw had earned his name.

Robin busied himself making sure his bow was properly strung and counting the arrows in his quiver. At least the night was dry with no wind to speak of. That was something. For the first time in his life, Robin’s hands trembled as he handled his bow. He sent up a silent prayer to God, hoping he was listening.

Please, let me shoot true. Don’t let my friends die because of me. And then as an afterthought, don’t let Gilbert White-hand break his promise.

His instincts told him the outlaw was a man of his word, but his instincts hadn’t been that reliable so far.

Guy hurried to Robin’s side. “What if you lose?” he hissed. “They’ll kill us all.”

“I won’t lose,” Robin whispered back.

Gilbert White-hand indicated a fallen trunk, which had long since been stripped of branches. Carved into the trunk was a crude circle. Gouge marks showed that this was often used for target practice. “Are you ready, boy?”

Robin drew in several deep, calming breaths. Guy and Katrina’s lives were in his hands. He had to win. He nodded once, and he and his opponent took up their positions.

An expectant hush had descended over the watching outlaws. Even Katrina had stopped crying.

Ralph, the scar-faced man, had taken on the role of judge. “Archers step back sixty paces.”

Gilbert White-hand did so, Robin matching him step for step. The outlaw leader shot first, his arrow striking the centre of the circle to applause from his men.

Robin shot next. His arrow also landed right on target and it was Guy and Katrina’s turn to clap. Robin tried not to think about how lost and vulnerable they looked standing in the midst of the outlaws. He thought he heard murmurs of admiration among some of the watching men but he forced himself to ignore them. He couldn’t afford to get distracted.

Both archers stepped back ten more paces. Again, both shot, and again, both hit the circle’s centre. Sweat broke out on Robin’s face, despite the coolness of the night. There were a few grudging claps for him as well.

“The lad wasn’t lying,” he heard one man mutter. “He can shoot.”

Ralph gave Robin a vindictive smile. “This is too easy for you, boy. Archers move back twenty paces.”

Robin swallowed. He could do it. Guy and Katrina were counting on him.

Gilbert White-hand’s arrow flew true. Robin’s did also.

Several of the outlaws applauded.

“You’re a natural,” Gilbert White-hand remarked so only Robin could hear. Aloud, he called, “Thirty paces this time, boy?”

Robin’s hand clenched on his bow. He had only ever hit a target once from a distance of a hundred and twenty paces. Everyone was waiting for his answer.

Ralph’s face was twisted in a derisive sneer. “What’s the matter, boy? Not man enough for the job?”

Robin ignored the taunt. “I agree.”

They took thirty paces back, Ralph making sure to count them in a loud, deliberate voice.

As before, Gilbert White-hand shot first, and as before, his arrow landed dead centre.

“Your turn, boy,” he said, smiling.

Robin shut out everything, becoming one with his bow, as Sir Richard had taught him. He nocked his arrow and drew back the string until it was level with his ear. This was it. He couldn’t miss.

Despite his efforts to ignore them, he could hear jeers in the crowd.

“Come on, what are you waiting for?”

“The lad’s lost his nerve.”

Robin forced himself to block out the words. He let the arrow fly. The instant it was loosed, he closed his eyes.

“No!”

At Katrina’s scream, Robin’s eyes snapped open. Guy was staring at the target, a look of horror on his face. Robin followed his gaze. What he saw turned his blood to ice. His arrow was buried in the trunk, but it was outside the circle. He had lost.

Title: Daddy Ever After (a Billionaire Romance)
Author: Emilia Beaumont
 
 
 
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
Once upon a Daddy…

I entered the beast’s lair and begged the billionaire recluse to keep my mom’s job safe while she recovered from her fall. But what Gareth Fiori offered me in exchange was nothing I could have ever prepared myself for.

One thing was for certain; turning him down was not an option.

Trapped inside a mansion with a man I barely knew, on hands and knees I scrubbed his floors and did everything he commanded. 

He was cruel. He was kind. Some days he blew hot, but mostly he encased his heart in cold, rock hard, ice. And although Gareth was no prince, he became my everything.

My new daddy has secrets. Ones he most definitely does not want to be freed into the world. However, little does he know that I’ve been a bad girl, I’ve deceived him too. My motives weren’t as pure as he thought.

Synopsis

Sadie Foster is consumed with revenge. The quiet beauty she portrays on the outside disguises the rage bubbling within her. Because on the inside, her desire for retribution dominates her every waking thought, until him…

Ramsey Dalton is an outlaw. A criminal that will do whatever it takes to get what he wants and to keep his MC brothers safe. He didn’t know there could be more to his life than sex, drugs and death, until her…

Their meeting is pure chance. Their connection undeniable. But what neither of them know, is that their relationship threatens to uncover far more than they could have imagined.

Secrets and lies are best left buried, but sometimes they’re too real to stay dead.

Excerpt

 

 

“Do you have any idea what you got involved in tonight, little girl?” His voice is low, dangerous, and for the first time since I woke, fear taps at each bone as it trickles down my spine and he moves closer. “I might not know your name, but I do know what you’ve done. What are you, some kind of femme fatale? You on a mission to rid the world of all the bad guys?” He chuckles to himself then stops with his body flush to mine. I hold his gaze, refusing to back off, feeling the fire in his eyes burning through mine. He strokes a finger lightly along my temple and down my cheek. “You got daddy issues?” he whispers.

“Fuck. You.” I shove at his chest, but he doesn’t budge an inch which only increases my frustration.

“Oh, sweetheart, usually I would take a girl up on such an offer, but—”

I bring my hand up to slap him, but he catches my wrist and grabs the other one in a flash, roughly pinning them to my side. “Oh no, you don’t.” He laughs under his breath, but his gaze is anything but humorous. “You got a lucky shot in last time. That kinda luck doesn’t happen twice.” He leans in close, pushing my hair from my face gently with his cheekbone and settling his hot breath over my ear. “Now, we can do this the easy way, or the hard way. I’m not above binding you again—” He pauses, letting a few heated breaths brush across my skin. “So tell me, are you going to bend and comply? Which will make it so much easier for you, or am I going to have to wrangle your twisted little soul into submission?”

Blog Tour – Valetti Crime Family: The Complete 5-Book Series – Author: Willow Winters

 
Title: Valetti Crime Family: The Complete 5-Book Series 
Author: Willow Winters
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
AMAZON TOP 100 series available in one bundle for a LIMITED time!



Includes the following five full-length, stand-alone romance novels featuring five filthy-mouthed, possessive bad boys:

 


Dirty Dom 
 
Dominic Valetti is only interested in two things: getting paid and getting laid. 
He’s a bookie for the Valetti crime family, and he knows his sh*t. Dom’s busy doing business, no time to dabble in social niceties. The women that chase after him are only gonna get their hearts broken. 
That is, until Becca stumbles into his office to pay off her ex’s debt. A hot brunette who’s just as guarded as he is and has a body made for sin… and for him. They’re not meant to be together. A woman like her shouldn’t be with a man like him. He’s mobbed up; she’s a good girl who deserves better. 
When they push their boundaries and cave to temptation, they both forget about the danger. And that’s a mistake a man like Dom can’t afford. 
 
His Hostage
He was supposed to take my life… Instead he made me his.
Valetti crime family underboss Vincent Valetti is hot. Like… jaw dropping, lip biting, panty wetting kind of hot. 
Tall and muscular, with the kind of dominant, cocky attitude that makes a girl’s knees go weak. 
He commands respect and fear from the familia, and he deserves it. He’s earned it. As for women… they can have one night and the most amazing f*ck of their life, but that’s all they get.
Until Elle. 

Gorgeous, curvy, and looking for an escape, she calls to Vincent. Her innocence begs him to take her… f*ck her, ruin her for all other men. 

Worse, he wants to protect her. In Vincent’s care, Elle witnesses a terrible crime — and if she breathes a word of it, the Valettis are screwed. 
Torn between the woman he craves and loyalty to his family, Vincent is put to the test. 
He should kill her, but he can’t let that happen. He won’t. Vincent’s a man who takes what he wants. And he wants Elle all to himself. 
She was in the wrong place and at the wrong time. Now she belongs to him. 

Rough Touch (formerly titled Good Girl)
I’m not a good man, but I’m damn good at what I do.

I was raised to be ruthless, and as muscle for the Petrov mafia, that’s all I am. 
Then she got caught in the crossfire, and when it was over, she was mine – given as a temporary gift. Once a mafia princess, now just a bargaining chip, she wasn’t a part of my plans. 
 

She’s scared, alone, and has the most perfect, innocent baby blues that beg me to protect her. 
There’s not an ounce of good in me. I don’t deserve her, but I want her. I want her sweet submission and tempting curves, at any cost. 
 

Even if I have to kill every f*cker who stands between us.  

This good girl belongs to me. 

Cuffed Kiss (formerly titled Bed Girl) 

She’s too good for me, but that’s not gonna stop me from taking her.

I’m not a good man, but I’ve never claimed to be. I’m the muscle for the Valetti crime family, and I fit the part with my hard, ripped abs, broad shoulders and cocky attitude. 
I’ve never wanted for anything, until I met her… A woman I can never have.
She’s forbidden. Just being seen together would put a target on both our backs. 
 

I can’t help imagining those lush, sassy lips wrapped around the one part of me that doesn’t give a damn she’s off-limits.  

All I wanted was a taste of her tempting, forbidden curves. One moment of hot, wild passion, and I’m f*cking addicted. 

Everything and everyone else be damned. I’m making her mine. 

Bad Boy
They thought I would do my job. They thought I would kill her. They thought wrong. 
I’m a dangerous man. It only takes one panty-dropping, mouth-watering look to know it. You may be fooled by my good looks and charm.
But my eyes give it away.
 

I’m the hitman for the Valetti familia, and I’m f*cking good at it. They want men to talk, and I make them talk. They want men gone–bang, it’s done. It’s as simple as that.
Until her. 

She’s on my list, but I f*cking want her. On her knees and submitting to my every command. I’ll give her a simple choice — die, or be mine.
I’ve always wanted this. Now that I have the chance, I’m taking it.
I can fulfill those fantasies I know she has. I’m going to make her beg for it.

I’m so grateful and honored!  I actually started writing after having my little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during my pregnancy with her I read.

I would read a book a day — sometimes two.  In January 2016 I was staying up late with her and just thinking of all these stories.  They came to me constantly. And I finally sat down and just started writing. I always wanted to do it so I figured, why not? I never thought I would reach this point of success, to be honest. It’s insane to me that I have so many fans. And I love each and every one of them for all of their support.
