AVARICE UNLEASHED 
Release Blitz



Hell hath no fury...

Saphiel's gone and it's all Kami's fault.
Panicked and riddled with guilt, she turns to the only one who can help, only to fall into the wrong hands time and again. It seems opportunity has knocked, and not a single enemy is willing to miss out. Everyone wants their dues and Kami's the perfect bait.

All she wants is to reunite with Saph and she'll face off with the Devil, himself, to do it.
Facing herself and the reluctant truths of her heart are a whole other matter, especially when it could be too late. Will the unforgiving Avarice ever pardon her for endangering them both?

As the calendar races toward Beltane, sickening plots of greed and single-minded obsessions continue to unravel all around them, but their greatest challenge awaits in the aftermath of retribution. Can they find some semblance of redemption in one another at last, or will the demon within change everything?

...like a Devil unleashed.

BOOK #1


Devils Only.
It was a permanent note-to-self tattooed right above Kameo Kross's panties, because anything less was a disappointment. Had anyone cared to issue the warning: Be careful what you wish for, she might have thought twice before wording it like an actual invitation.

Kami doesn't fear pain, death or eternal damnation. She fears only submitting completely. A matter she usually has well in hand... until an unexpected detour into kink and a relentless bastard of a new boss decide to put all of her resistance–and chosen ink–to the trickiest of tests.

Warning: This a work of Dark Erotic fiction with possible triggers. If you are faint of heart, easily squeamish or sensitive to religious/world views and violence, please do not read this book.

Cliffhanger Warning: This is the First of Three books and ends in an abrupt cliffhanger.


BOOK #2




Run.


That’s Kami’s first instinct when shit gets a little too real for her peace of mind.

Kink was supposed to be an escape, a release, but her mysterious Dom robbed her of that and there’s no going back. Her job was supposed to be an accomplishment, a step forward, but Mr. Kress took that from her and twisted it to his own design.

They want her to submit.

If Kami had her way, they’d both be kissing her ass on her way out the door.

Now, there’s a new threat hanging over her head. An unknown enemy wants to expose all of Kami’s sordid, depraved secrets to the media. Little do they know, that even she has no clue who in the hell she really is...but someone does.

Someone who’s about to reveal an incomprehensible tale. A truth that will unravel Kami’s entire life at the seams. Everything she’s ever believed will be altered as she’s thrust into a world she’d never feared existed, and only one undeniable fact will ring through the loudest:

Running had never been an option.

Trigger/Content Warning: This book contains unorthodox religious views, graphic anal sex, explicit language, dark eroticism, BDSM, violence and references to demonology, paganism and the occult. Intended for mature 18+ audiences only!



A.C. Melody is a quirky, unconventional and often contrary (mostly to her muse) hybrid author, both traditionally and self-published. She has a soft spot for hard ass alphas and the strong women who capture their hearts. Her favorite part of writing, is having the ability to explore her favorite subjects from unique angles. Also, she loves putting her characters through the ringer one way or another, to expose all of the various facets that make them tick. She's guilty of putting all her money on the underdogs, the anti-heroes and the shameless whores.

Outside of writing, A.C. is a confessed javaholic who loves reading, music, gaming, American Football, ancient civilizations, foreign cultures and everything supernatural. She has an insatiable curiosity that tends to earn her more hobbies than time. You can find her in the beautifully green Pacific Northwest with her two teenage sons and two blue-eyed, Himalayan-Siamese mixes who think they own the joint.

High Force (A DCI Ryan Mystery #5) by L.J.Ross. Murder/Mystery/Thriller. ARC Review

Add To

FROM THE #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF HOLY ISLAND 

Hell has unleashed a demon – and he’s coming for you… 

Detective Chief Inspector Ryan’s worst nightmare has just become a reality. Notorious serial killer The Hacker has escaped prison and kidnapped one of his best detectives from her own home. His brutality is the stuff of legend – Ryan lost his sister and nearly his own life bringing the man to justice first time around. Can Ryan do it again to save his friend? 

There’s a nationwide manhunt underway but the trail has gone cold and fear spreads like a virus. Ryan and his team must find The Hacker before he takes another life – but are they too late? 

The clock is ticking… 

Murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunit set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape. 


🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


A particularly vicious serial killer has escaped from prison, and taken a female police detective.  DCI Ryan and his team know that the killer has deliberately targeted one of their own because they are the ones that caught him the first time.  Everyone is working all hours to try and find him before the body count gets any higher.  While the killer is taunting them and proving just how brilliant he is. Is  detective MacKenzie being held or is she already dead?  We know but the team don't.  Our devious killer seems to be able to do anything he wants right under their noses.   
A marvellous thriller, that follows both sides of crimes.  We are given details of the crime scenes that play on the minds and emotions of the police because they are staged to do exactly that. 
This is part of a series but you could read any of them on it's own.  It's only the personal relationships of members of the team that follow a timeline. 
A book that will certainly keep you enthralled from first to last.

Hunted By The Dragon Duke (Howls Romance #7) by Mina Carter. Paranormal Romance & ARC Review

Add To

Sexy, royal and one of the ferocious black dragons… he’s way out of her league. 

Orphaned and forced to live under the cruel eye of her stepmother, Saskia spends her days and most of her nights sewing gowns for rich dragonesses to wear to balls she will never see. When a chance encounter brings her into contact with the handsome Callan, Duke and cousin to the Queen, she thinks nothing of it. After all, what royal duke would want a woman with a broken, mad dragon? 

But when the otherworldly intervenes, Saskia gets her chance to go to the ball, and dance with the man of her dreams… 

Tiny, delicate and utterly beautiful… but where has he seen her before? 

A royal duke by birth, and a black, Callan’s life has been dictated since the moment he was born. Ordered by his cousin, the queen, to pick a bride at the ball or she’ll pick for him, he’s between a rock and a hard place. Until he sees her. The tiny woman in the purple gown runs him a merry chase over the ballroom but one look and he’s determined. She will be his. 

And she is, for the briefest of moments before his duty intervenes and he has to return a wayward youth to his father before he gets himself into a lifetime of trouble. When he returns his delicate princess is gone, leaving behind a single shoe… 

Furious, Callan launches a hunt for his love…one that leads to a woman who is not who she pretends to be, a raid on a brothel and a fight with a troll. Can he persuade his delicate princess she’s not broken, but that she’s the perfect dragoness for him?

Saskia Evans is very much like Cinderella,  always being bullied by her stepmother and stepsisters.  She does all the designing and work on the clothes they make but gets none of the praise.  Even her dragon half is a prisoner of a magic necklace because she can't control it. 
Calan the Duke of Vacossin is a powerful black dragon and cousin to the Queen.  The Queen is pressuring him to take a mate,  and invites lots of single female dragons to her ball. 
This is a short Cinderella based paranormal.  It's sexy and filled with magic.  I think it's part of a series that I will look out for. 
Good fun.

Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days.

So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all...

(But she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.)

The boring part: A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.

Hunter Claimed (Dark Wolf Enterprises #3) by A.M.Griffin. Paranormal Romance Release & ARC Review.

Add To

When Hunter and Asha’s worlds collide, neither is able to walk away from the other.

Asha has a simple plan for her life—her hopefully soon-to-be immortal life. All she’s ever wanted was to be so powerful that no one could ever hurt her again, and once she becomes a Vampire her dream will come true. Sure, being a Vampire’s protΓ©gΓ© isn’t the easiest job a girl could have, but there are far tougher roads she could be walking, like following in her drug-addicted mother’s footsteps.

Hunter Arany hates Vampires, and with good reason. So when Dark Wolf Enterprises is forced to hire a group of the blood-suckers to find out who’s been stealing company money, he’s sure having them around will be a problem. He never figured it would the Vampires’ human servant who causes him the most trouble—trouble of the love and life-mate kind.

He’s hoping to convince Asha a brighter future exists in his arms, but old dreams fade slowly and can become living nightmares—of the dying kind.

Publisher's Note: This book has previously been released elsewhere. It has been revised and re-edited for re-release with Totally Bound Publishing.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


Asha Higgins was a young runaway when she was found by a Vampire.  Now she is a qualified accountant,  and part of the team that are going to help Dark Wolf Enterprise find out who is stealing from them. 
Wolf shifter Hunter Arany is temporarily in charge of security and is not happy about having vampires working for them.  He has a lot of very bad memories of what they can do. 
This is the third book in a series that should be read in order because of the background story.  Our hero is a bit distracted from a family affair that could be dangerous.  Our heroine is in way over her head and is for some reason happy about it.  Lots of  tension between everyone and lies and danger everywhere.  A great action filled addition to the series,  and with a teaser at the end for the next story that I must have.
