Relic Bounty Blitz & Giveaway

 

Relic Bounty
Arwen Paris
(Relic Legacy Series)
Publication date: December 30th 2020
Genres: Adult, Romance, Science Fiction

Kill the courier, retrieve the relic, collect the money.

Bounty hunter Janis Torzen finally has a chance to free himself from his indentured servitude to the mob. The brutal weather on planet Urrak is as unforgiving as the mob boss Janis Torzen works for, so of course a sudden sandstorm upsets his best laid plans. To make things worse, the courier, Everell, turns out to be a beautiful, smart-mouthed archeologist who has her own plans for the money. Unfortunately, powerful people will kill to possess the relic Everell carries—everyone from government officials to the social elite, and they will stop at nothing to get it.

Now on the run, Janis and Everell are forced to depend on each other to escape from Nadir Space Port. But when Everell and the relic are stolen from Janis, he must go back to the very man he’s trying to get away from and offer a deal with the devil. He’s got nothing to lose but his own life, so he bluffs the mob, willing to sacrifice his future to save the woman he’s fallen in love with—a woman he’s still not sure he can trust.

It’s a crazy plan, one so crazy it just might work. If he succeeds, it will pay out big for his wallet and his heart—if he doesn’t die trying. But with a bounty this high, it’s worth any risk…

Julia Kent
Publication date: January 9th 2015
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

Ever meet a hot billionaire while your hand’s in a toilet in the men’s room of one of his stores?

No? So it really is just me. Hm.

When you’re a mystery shopper, you get paid to humiliate yourself, all in the name of improving customer service. Romance isn’t in my job description.

But the day I met Declan McCormick it was love at first flush.

Until I nearly castrated him with my EpiPen.

How Hot Guy and Toilet Girl became an item involves my crazy mom, a trip to the ER, my homicidal cat, my fake wife, and true love.

Don’t look at me like that. I’m just doing my job.

I’m shopping for a billionaire.

The Shopping for a Billionaire collection from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent is a 600+ page, hilarious romantic comedy with heart, heat, and laughs.

This boxed set contains the previously published:
Shopping for a Billionaire 1
Shopping for a Billionaire 2

EXCERPT:

Whoosh! Whoosh! I flush both urinals, then rush over to toilet #1. Whoosh! I stand in front of the stall to #2 and get ready to flush that one.

I’m in my own little world and let my guard down to ponder the question. I am also exhausted and most definitely not in top form, because I let a few seconds go by before realizing that someone is coming in the bathroom. Out of the corner of my eye I see a business shoe, and that becomes a blur as I scurry into one of the stalls and shut the door.

Heart pounding, I stare at the dented back of the stall door. Then I look down. Chipped red nail polish peeks up at me from my open-toed navy shoe. Aside from being outed as a transgendered person in here, there’s no plausible reason why any men’s room stall occupant should have red toenails.

I quickly scramble to perch myself on the toilet, feet planted firmly on either side of the rim, squatting over the open bowl like I am giving birth. Because I am genetically incapable of balance—ever—and as my heart slams against my chest so hard it might as well be playing a djembe, I lean carefully forward with one arm against the back of the stall door, the other clutching my phone.

The unmistakable sound of a man taking a whizz echoes through the bathroom. I can’t help myself and look through the tiny crack in the door.

It’s Mr. Sex in a Suit, his back to me. Thank goodness, because if I got a full-frontal shot right now, then how would I answer the “aesthetically pleasing” question from a strictly professional standpoint?

The tiny bit of shifting I do to peer through the crack makes my right foot slip, and I make a squeaking sound, then lose my grip on my phone as my arm flails.

Ka-PLUNK!

You know that sound, right? I know, and you know, that I’ve just dropped my smartphone in the toilet, but he thinks the man—he assumes it’s a man—in here just delivered something the size of a two-hundred-year-old turtle into the toilet.

I look down. My phone is still glowing, open to the question “Is the bathroom aesthetically pleasing?”

Christmas promises to be anything but merry for Robin Matthews who is waging a losing battle to keep her ranch and her family together. So when rugged ex-Marshal Nathaniel Hollister grudgingly agrees to help her run the Rocking M temporarily, he appears to be the answer to her prayers. But with Christmas fast approaching, Robin is going to need a miracle to keep from losing everything, including her heart to this kind but bitter man.

Though his attraction to her is growing by the day, Nathaniel knows he is too world-weary for a decent young woman like Robin. Once the most infamous lawman in the West, he turned in his badge after a tragedy left him guilt stricken and disillusioned. And yet Nathaniel is about to discover that the magic of Christmas has a way of making the impossible possible… and turning wishes into simple gifts that can last a lifetime.

* Simple Gifts was originally published as A Cowboy for Christmas from Kensington (2000)
Read an Excerpt

"If you hadn't been there, I could have handled things just fine on my own. I probably wouldn't have even been shot," Robin said defiantly. She was sitting upright in her bed now, the covers she had tucked so modestly under her arms long ago forgotten in the blaze of her anger. The well-worn fabric clung to the sweet swell of her breasts.

As he stared at her, his awareness of her as a woman came rushing back in a dangerous tide. Lord, Robin Matthews was pretty when she was in a temper. Her cheeks were flushed with color and her green eyes sparked fire. With that golden braid of hair falling over her shoulder, she looked soft and feminine and far too delectable for his peace of mind. He was painfully aware that he was alone with her in her bedroom, and that she was wearing just a nightgown and not much else. He remembered how good and soft she'd felt while he carried her home, and he could still remember clearly the way her hair had smelled of roses and lavender.

A part of him wanted to take her into his arms, sink back with her into that featherbed, and make her forget all about her precious ranch. He knew she wasn't indifferent to him. He saw the small looks she slanted his way when she thought he wasn't aware. It would be good between them. He'd help her turn some of that passion she felt for her ranch toward loving, and it would be better than good.

About the Author:Anna DeForest wrote her first book-length piece of fiction in fifth grade. She taught history at the Colorado Heritage Center and a Denver private school. She was thrilled when Leisure Books bought her first historical romance, Golden Dreams. She was actually watching Sesame Street with her four-year-old when she received the good news call from her agent, but she managed to tear herself away from Big Bird long enough to listen to the terms of her new contract.

Growing up in Colorado gave Anna a lifelong taste for outdoor activities such as hiking, riding and skiing. She also enjoys gardening, which is currently quite a challenge because armadillos keep rooting around in her garden in Dallas.

Anna has always tried to write the kind of romances she likes to read—stories about warm, caring people who pursue their lives and loves with passion. These days, Anna is excited about offering four of her previously published romances to her new readers, along with three romances that have never been published before. You can learn more about Anna and her books at http://www.annadeforest.com.

The book will be on sale for only $0.99.

Release Date: January 19, 2021


BLURB

Parker 
I can’t escape the past no matter how fast or how far I run. 
I’m broken and damaged, and nothing will change that. 
Not after my husband died overseas and I was left alone. 
All I can do is keep moving forward. 
But what I don’t expect is one cop in particular to get under my skin. 
Making me want something more. 
He hates me. 
Everywhere I turn, he’s there, watching me. 
Waiting for me to screw up. 
Again. 
I’m not going to give up, though. 
Not when I finally found something that makes me happy. 
I know how short life can be and I’m not backing down. 
Remy Townsend doesn’t stand a chance once I make up my mind. 
After all, we grew up together. 
And I know every button to press to get what I want. 

Remy 
One drunken promise is going to ruin my life. 
I told him I’d watch out for his wife if he died. 
The task was easy enough when I was overseas. 
All I had to do was send a letter, or make a phone call. 
But coming home and seeing her will be my undoing. 
She’s everywhere I go. 
Everywhere I turn. 
Now, I can’t take my eyes off her even when I want to. 
Keeping her safe means I have to stay away. 
Because the thoughts going through my head ... 
Well they’re enough to send me straight to hell. 
Parker Hayes is quickly invading every aspect of my life. 
One drunken promise… That’s what it always circles back to. 
I’ve been trained to go balls to the wall with every mission. 
Never back down. Never surrender. Never walk away. 
Even if what we have becomes collateral damage.

EXCERPT

He tipped my head to the side, his fingertips drawing the nerve endings to life. A shiver rushed through me as his breath brushed my mouth, before he let them trail up and over the curve of my jaw toward my ear. 
“Do you know you’re playing with fire?” 
“I’d prefer to be burned by you than by him.” 
With our cheeks kissing, I released a shaky sigh when his stubble dragged against me, and though it wasn’t comfortable, it had me clenching my stomach in surprise. His lips whispered along the skin he’d just teased, before his hand slid down to my collarbone. 
The tips of his fingers trailed there a second, making my heart skip a beat as the tiny hairs at the back of my neck stiffened with the delicious sensations that he forced on me with the simplest of moves. Then, he cupped me there, and his hand was so large that it covered the entirety of my throat. 
His thumb pressed against my pulse, and I was well aware that it was fluttering away like the panicked beats of the wings of a trapped bird. He pressed down and murmured, “I need to work on my street cred if you’re more scared of an old, fat fuck than me.” Then he dipped his head and forced our mouths to collide. 
And he stole my breath. 
Robbed me of it like he was a thief in the night. 
I hadn’t expected this—why would I? 
But a sharp gasp escaped me as he plunged his tongue between my lips with an ease that told me how comfortable he was in these situations, and reminded me of how uncomfortable I was. 
I’d never been at ease with my body, had always felt like something being fucked rather than someone, but even as my mind spaced, and my brain whirred, he retained my focus by pressing down on my neck. Almost as if he knew when my thoughts were drifting, I’d feel the heavy pressure at the same time as his tongue stroked along mine. 
Brennan, for whatever crazy reason, was into this. 
More leverage over him, I thought, before he thieved me of that thought process by tilting my head to the side and pulling back, parting his teeth around my lip and biting down. 
That felt good and bad at the same time, and I felt the strange stirrings of warmth in my stomach. Like the embers of a fire that were slowly being stoked to life. 
A soft moan escaped me as he pushed his dick against my abdomen, pressing me up against the stable so that I was literally between two hard places. 
“W-Why?” I whispered, not sure what I was asking, whether it was about the kiss or the way he still held me firmly by throat.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: March 12, 2021


BLURB

I had learned a lot in my life. Being a foster kid and jumping from household to household, I knew more about surviving than any other human my age. I could disassemble and reassemble a motorcycle in a matter of a couple of weeks. I had experience in carpentry, cooking, cleaning, and any other odd job one could do while growing up. I thought I knew it all and had done it all. Meeting Brooklyn, however, taught me the one thing I never truly had. 
Love. 
She brought feelings into my life that I couldn't explain if I tried the rest of my life. The word love never meant much to me, but with her, it felt natural. Real. 
I didn't know love, and I wasn't prepared for what it brought along with it. 
Love brought jealousy. 
Love brought worry. 
Love brought a side of me I wasn’t prepared for. 
Brooklyn brought a lot of unexpected changes into my life. 
Love. Loss. Heartbreak. 
She was my star, but even the brightest of stars eventually burn out.

As Treasurer of the Untamed Sons MC, I don't have time to deal with a bratty kid. Briella is nineteen. I'm thirty-one.

When I look in her eyes, I see her demons glaring back at me, and I want to know who put them there. I shouldn't be thinking about her at all, but I'm willing to stand against my club brothers and break vows I've made to keep her, but first I have to uncover what she's hiding. 

Briella 

I've got darkness in my past that I can no longer keep buried. When Daimon finds out the truth, he's going to drop me and run.
