Every time she feels they are getting ahead, Logan finds another way to ruin it. It’s a race to see who can come out on top. Can Mari outlast Logan? Can Mari find a way to make sure her future is the one she wants?

Coming soon to:
Person after person approached me to touch my hand and mumble some sort of greeting. I wasn’t exactly sure what was going on, but just played along since my father and Seth both seemed to understand. The crowd around me pressed tightly as more people tried to touch my hand. I got the feeling they understood I wasn’t going to stand around all night doing it, and would walk away as soon as I could.
“Don’t think this changes anything,” a way-too-familiar voice said into my ear. My heart beat faster, and I didn’t want to turn and confirm what I already knew. Logan was in my father’s palace. “You will still be mine. I can see our son is still here, and that’s all I need to know. This changes nothing. Once I find the last stone, I’ll be coming for you and there will be nothing your father can do to stop me.”
I turned to fire a retort at him even though I had no clue what I was going to say. He backed up and flashed me one of his model Logan smiles before fading among the guests who were still trying to touch me. I stared dumbfounded and watched him go.
Coming to my senses, I looked around the room to see if I could see the rest of my family and friends. The mob was too tight, and I just wasn’t tall enough. I dropped my hand and began to push through the mass of people to where my father and mother were. Everyone parted and allowed me through. Seth came out of the crowd also just as easily as I had. When I reached my parents, my father bent down and touched his forehead to mine.
“I’m so happy you returned to us,” he told me.
My mother beamed from beside him. They were beyond happy. This was probably the day they both had been waiting their whole lives for. I couldn’t ruin it by telling them about Logan. I’d have to wait and talk to Kye. This was their wedding day, and they deserved to have it without worry. Even with everything, I was happy to be there with them.
I looked around the hall of people. Once I reached my father, everyone took that as their cue to go back to their little groups and enjoy the night. Seth waited just below us on the stairs as he watched me. I wanted to decipher his smile, but I was too worried now about Logan. I scanned the crowd and my father’s words rung way too true in my head. I was happy to have returned to him, but unfortunately, I wasn’t the only one who returned.

Then two beautiful girls show up in his life — one who is sexy as hell and could be the woman of his dreams, while the other claims to have known him from a past he cannot remember. Only there is one thing he can’t wrap his mind around — Why does he crave each of the girls?
A now eighteen-year-old Eva, a powerful Dragon Heart Keeper from the Dragon Realm, is punished by her parents and sent to the earthly realm by her witch maiden. Her memories have all been wiped clean, but why can she still remember Ash, and the undeniable bond they once shared?
Emily is a Siren princess, and she always gets what she wants. When she sets her sights on Ash, all bets are off. She will make him hers — if only his Keeper weren’t in the way.

FACING FIRE by HelenKay Dimon


HelenKay Dimon returns with another hot installment of her romantic suspense series featuring the fierce men of Alliance—a top-secret military security agency—and the only women who can tame them.

When his uncle is brutally murdered, Josiah King knows that business just got personal. His uncle’s ties to the Alliance can mean only one thing: Josiah and his black ops team are targets, along with everyone they love. Primed for vengeance, Josiah is determined to unravel the plot—until long-legged redhead Sutton Dahl becomes a dangerous distraction.

Sutton is very good at uncovering other people’s secrets—and protecting her own. When Josiah bursts into her life she’s torn between pushing him away and asking for his help. Mysterious, strong, and much too sexy, he’s a puzzle she longs to solve, and a temptation she can’t ignore.

Thrown together in the face of Alliance’s most lethal threat, Josiah and Sutton become unlikely partners, fighting for their lives even as the attraction between them flares into real passion. Torn between his team and the woman who means everything to him, Josiah will risk it all to save Sutton, even if that decision is his last. 

Helenkay Dimon spent the years before becoming a romance author as a . . . divorce attorney. Not the usual transition, she knows. Good news is she now writes full time and is much happier. She has sold over thirty novels, novellas and shorts to numerous publishers. Her nationally bestselling and award-winning books have been showcased in numerous venues and her books have twice been named “Red-Hot Reads” and excerpted in Cosmopolitan magazine. But if you ask her, she’ll tell you the best part of the job is never having to wear pantyhose again.

“The Bad Boys Undercover are back, and this third installment gives readers everything they love: high stakes, intense action and unexpectedly searing chemistry.”—RT Book Reviews on FACING FIRE

“Nail-biting suspense and steamy romance are the mainstays of this novel, as the protagonists must discover whether their attractions stems from deeper emotions.”—Publishers Weekly on FACING FIRE

“The latest high-adrenaline installment in Dimon’s (Playing Dirty, 2015) Bad Boys Undercover series delivers plenty of testosterone-fueled action and smoking-hot sexual chemistry between a rough, tough, alpha hero and a strong-willed heroine, who is more than his match. Give this one to fans of Suzanne Brockmann or Cherry Adair.”—Booklist

I hoofed it like hell hounds snapped at my ankles through the tall grass, pressing the tiny bundle tightly against my chest.
The two words swirled in my head, my only thoughts. I couldn’t have imagined the pure evil, the betrayal, the disregard for such a precious package. I ran like the wind, tapping into an unnatural strength, and still, I heard them closing in, coming for me.
Coming for him.

In Her Eyes & Through His Eyes Double Release Blitz with Cadence Rae & A.M. Jensen

Title: In Her Eyes & Through His Eyes
Author: Cadence Rae & A.M. Jensen
Genre: Upper YA Paranormal Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours
In Her Eyes: A Rougorou Chronicles Novella (The Rougarou Chronicles)
I once heard a few tales trickled down the bayou from New Orleans that a witch can turn herself into one or curse someone into becoming something of the Lycan nature. Growing up in such a unique culture filled with a variety of folklore and legends, you tend to pass them off as just that, tales. People see and hear strange things so they make up tales to explain it or they make it up for the fun of scaring others with their tale weaving skills or to keep little kids in line. I admit they are pretty cool to hear and study but do I believe in any of them, haha yeah right! I was wrong, so so wrong. As if, finding out my boyfriend aka mate is a werewolf, and an Alpha )or soon to be one) wasn’t strange enough, no things had to get stranger. Such is my life I guess. 
But the best part of this story was by time I grew up there was only one rougarou family left and I happened to have caught the attention of one, one who claim me as his. Unfortunately I knew none of this until I found myself fighting for my life and my freedom against that last standing family while trying to let down my guard long enough to let my true mate into my damaged heart so he could protect me from that threat. But I saw them all as a threat and no longer knew how to trust and that’s where my life takes a dangerous turn. 
Blurb: (Through His Eyes)
Through His Eyes: A Rougorou Chronicles Novella (The Rougarou Chronicles)

Things did not start out kindly for them and Ariella would avoid him at any cost. Kyler knows he needs to do something but what can he do to get her to trust him when it appears she doesn’t trust anyone? 
When Ariella’s past comes back to claim her Kyler must do everything he can to protect his Mate and the love of his life from the dangers of her past. Can he truly protect her from the unknown? Can he protect her from herself and can he get her to open up to him?
