Some would say I have a privileged life. Daughter of the current President of the United States, wealthy, famous, and all things that some girls wish they had. 

Only I'd dream of having a simple life. A life where I wasn't marrying the scariest man I have ever met. Well, I thought I had just met him, but it turns out, there's so much I don't know about myself. That's all thanks to a past so twisted, so warped, that no amount of money, or presidential status could wipe it clean. 

I'm the rebel child. Or as some may see it, the disappointment. I’ve never cared about expensive wedding gowns, or how much someone paid for a tailored suit. I don’t care if your wedding dress is from Walmart, or if it’s from some fancy, upscale designer line. 

So why am I marrying the devil dressed in a thousand-dollar 
suit? 

I'm about to find out how I got here. To marrying one of the most powerful men in the country. The road to finding out, though, is paved with darkness, painted with the blood of innocents, and it leads my ass straight to hell. Only this hell is a multi-million-dollar penthouse suite in New York City where Bryant Saint Royal, sits on his throne.

Release Blitz for The Vampire Covenant Series Boxed Set by Betty Shreffler




Title: The Vampire Covenant Series Boxed Set
Series: The Vampire Covenant #1-3
Author: Betty Shreffler
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 13, 2017



Blurb

If you like paranormal romance books with hot vampires, powerful witches and sexy werewolves in them, then get a taste of The Vampire Covenant Series. This series is steamy, action packed, full of twists, with hot alphas and a kick@ss heroine.

In the Covenant Series you meet Kayci Pierce, who struggles with choices between love, loyalty, secrecy, betrayal, the life she's always known and the life she was born for.

In book two of the Covenant Series, Kayci is pushed into a darker side of herself and is torn between two men. A soldier vampire named, Adrian or an alpha werewolf named, Cass.

In book three, Kayci must make her choice between them.

She's the leader of the Vampire Covenant. Untouchable. Already claimed by another. Cass is an alpha who wants more than she can give. He wants her...to be his. Her excruciating attraction to him could cost her everything. One man will fight to keep her love while the other will do whatever it takes to win it.

Embrace the Dawning (Book One)

Kayci Pierce possesses strength, endurance, and accelerated healing that set her apart from normal humans—traits she's never understood and kept hidden since childhood. She feels disconnected from the seemingly normal world around her—until she's attacked by a creature she didn't know exists and then rescued by a stranger she can't forget. Dreams of the attractive, dangerous man haunt her and lead her into a world she was born for.

Adrian Spade spends most of his solitary nights hunting rogue vampires for the Covenant, until an undeniable attraction leads him to reveal his vampire identity and risk his life by saving Kayci's. Tempted by her mysterious nature, Adrian finds himself drawn to Kayci and becomes her protector while she discovers her heritage and what it means to be a half-breed vampire sorceress.

Kayci's relationship with Adrian brings her as much passion as it does danger. Now with a vampire revolution beginning and a romantic connection to a full-blood vampire, Kayci must work with Adrian to survive surrounding threats. As Kayci tries to make sense of an unfamiliar world, she's forced to choose between the life she's always known and her vampire birthright.

Cruel Temptation (Book 2)

The war is over. The rogue vampires dispatched. As a full-blood vampire and sorceress, Kayci Pierce finally feels safe. Her focus now set on how to run the Covenant and best protect her species. The next-in-line, Lycan clan leader shares Kayci’s vision—but his captivating and sexy brother, Cassius McCabe is a distraction Kayci can't afford.

New threats surround Kayci as she navigates unfamiliar territory and feelings she can't hide. Will temptations destroy her and everything she's worked for, or will love be enough to pull her back from the edge?

Dark and Beautiful Nights (Book 3)

Devotion keeps Kayci longing for Adrian's return. Dark magic is the only way to free him and its cruel seduction has captured Kayci in its embrace. Cassius, unwilling to lose the one thing he's longed for—his mate, fights for Kayci's heart and saves her from her biggest threat…herself.

Pulled between unrestrainable desire for Cassius and her devotion to Adrian, leaves Kayci suffering from the worst battle she's ever encountered…the one for her heart.

Cover Reveal for Tempt Me With Forever by Maria Luis




Title: Tempt Me With Forever
Series: NOLA Heart #4 (Standalone)
Author: Maria Luis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs
Release Date: November 9, 2017

Never trust a bad boy.

That’s what Beauty Influencer Lizzie Danvers tells her YouTube subscribers after getting dumped on Instagram. Lizzie may have the devil’s luck in choosing men, but she’s determined to prove that the age-old “once a playboy, always a playboy” theory is bulletproof. All she needs is thirty days and one sexy commitment phobe to do it...

By day, Gage Harvey helps his twin at Inked on Bourbon, tattooing butterflies onto every female under the age of thirty. By night, he works for New Orleans’ Special Operatives Division, fulfilling a family legacy to protect his city. Relationships aren’t on his radar--until the hot-as-hell woman on his tattoo table glances up at him, a butterfly half-inked on her ass, and propositions him.

Gage should say no--nothing good ever comes from entertaining crazy women. But for the sake of playboys everywhere, he’ll take one for the team, and prove to Miss Lizzie Danvers that bad boys are the only men who will tempt you with forever.






Excerpt

A woman stood facing the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlooked Bourbon Street.

He catalogued the back of her in a heartbeat.

Perfectly tousled brown hair.

Off-the-shoulder white blouse.

Form-fitting black skirt.

Slim calves, trim ankles, and a pair of fuck-me black heels that could do double-duty as a weapon if she was so inclined.

“You here for the butterfly?”

At the sound of his gruff question, she turned around and Gage felt his gut clench with unexpected lust. Owen hadn’t had the right of it; this woman wasn’t cute, she was gorgeous. The sort of breathtaking that had you questioning your sanity. The sort of breathtaking that made you wonder what the hell you could say to get her into your bed, her slim legs wrapped around your waist, and her breath hot and fast against your neck.

Damn.

Blue eyes lit with nervous anticipation as she rubbed her hands together. The motion jiggled her bracelets. And, if her shirt weren’t so loose, he’d have had the opportunity to see if all that rubbing and jiggling affected her breasts too.

“I am,” she said with a bright smile. Straight white teeth; lips painted the color of a ripe plum. He wanted to see the color mussed, kissed into nonexistence, and discover the true shade of her lips.

Get a grip, man.

Swallowing his lust, Gage motioned for her to step up to the vintage bar. “Let’s get your paperwork settled.” He pulled one of the already prepared clipboards from the pile, and then slid it over to the woman, a pen on the side. “This your first tattoo?”

She slipped her purse from her shoulder, dropping her head to rifle through the contents. “It is,” she said, placing a gold wallet on the bar. “I’m turning over a new leaf. Doing something new with my life, and I figured that a butterfly is—”

“Metaphorical?”

Her stunning blue eyes leapt to his face. “Yes!” she exclaimed, either ignoring his wry tone or oblivious to it. “That’s it exactly. I mean, I know I could have gone with something a little more original, but—” She crooked her finger at him, and he fell for it, leaning in close as she mock-whispered, “I’m deathly afraid of needles. Silly, isn’t it?”

The cop side of his brain wanted to tell her that her aversion to needles was a good thing. In the last fourteen years that he’d been on the force, he’d witnessed way too many heroin overdoses to count.

But this woman . . . Gage inched his gaze down toward those plum-colored lips of hers. Yeah, women like her weren’t in that world; they didn’t exist in the underbelly of his beloved hometown. And so he only smirked and said, “You’ve still got time to rethink this. Once we start, trust me when I say you’ll only look ridiculous if we stop midway through.”

She cocked her head to the side, surveying him with a single look. “Good thing I’m getting it done on my butt, then, right? No one will know if I cry mercy. No one but me and . . . you.”

Gage laughed, loudly. “Want me to offer you a strip of leather to bite down on?”

Her eyes narrowed. “Does that cost extra?”

“I’ll make it free just for you.” He tapped his hip, drawing her gaze down to his worn Levi’s. “Leather belt meet to your satisfaction, Princess?”

Model Interview ~ Autumn Jones






1) What made you first become a model?

I've gone up and down over the years in my confidence levels, I wanted to take control of that and allow myself to feel good about myself. When I feel awful I'll look back on the good pictures as a reminder I don't always look like a tramp.

2)How did you feel when you did your first ever photo shoot?

I was definitely nervous, but still enjoyed every minute.

3)Who was your role model as a child and how did that help in being a model?

Oh goodness. It was Madonna hahaha I think this made me want to express my sexuality a lot, it's just something I can't help and this is why I may have gone down the lingerie and sensual look.

4)How do you feel about the controversy of the size 0 debate in the industry?

I think the most important thing is to be healthy, don't strive to look how someone else wants you to look, make your own goals and try to achieve them the right way.

5)If your were not a model, what other profession would you have been doing instead?

I actually teach Burlesque chair dance.
But my dream job would to be a professional singer/performer



6)How do you cope under the pressures of being a model?

I don't push myself constantly, if I need a break from very healthy eating and going to the gym regularly I'll give myself it. It can sometimes be hard to get back on it, but I gain weight very fast so even just for my health I need to make sure to get back on my plan. To help keep me on track I'm going to try not to buy bigger clothes when I fluctuate meaning I just have to get back into shape.

7)What are guilty pleasures food wise?

Everything!
Pizza, Chinese, cake, alcohol, pastries 😂 you name it, I want to eat ALL the food and drink all the cocktails.

8) If a young girl/boy wanted to be a model what would your advice for them be?

Stay healthy!
Get lots of practice before expecting paid work, so patience is a virtue.
Sometimes you get it fast and that's great but experience makes a difference to how well you perform. It's not just about having a pretty face. If you can model well sometimes looks don't even matter.
I had a fair amount of interest in the early days but I didn't even want to apply for paid work until I knew I could 'bring it'

9)Describe your life using film titles.

Burlesque
Cats
The sound of music
Sleeping beauty


10) What beauty tips do you swear by?

Exfoliate and moisturise
