About the Book:

Infamous for his pedigree of madness and murder, the reclusive Duke of Ashbey believes he cannot feel until a mysterious woman unlocks a world of sensation in a single, shattering moment of connection. He casts a desperate bid for more.

Recent widow Alicia Stone has long been reviled as the chief impediment to a love affair that captured the nation’s imagination. Publicly, she settled for respectability’s cold comfort, but, secretly, she longs to experience what she never found with her famous husband—uninhibited passion.

When a devilish duke proposes a discreet three-night assignation, Alicia shocks herself by accepting. But will their explosive union cost them both far more than they bargained?

Book Blast: Deadspeak 2

The Blurb
DEADSPEAK2. The chilling new entry in the Deadspeak Mystery Series

Things look different when you're dead.

It’s Halloween and a group of teens throw a party at Harbinger Falls’ most celebrated haunted estate. It’s all fun and games until a session with a Ouija board guides the partygoers to the body of a young girl hidden in the attic. 

Detective Kimberly Trent is assigned the case and quickly discovers that all is not as it seems. First, there’s the connection between the death and a string of petnappings terrorizing the neighborhood. Then there’s the suicide note that only leaves more questions than answers. A visit from Kimberly’s ghostly friend Griff Lindon sheds an unwelcome light. It seems she’s had a run in with the newly deceased who tells her she’s been murdered. 

This is the second in The Deadspeak Mysteries. The entries are meant to be read in sequential order and do not standalone. In each book, you’ll find a new murder for Kimberly Trent to solve. You’ll also find the continuing search for who murdered Kim’s sister Elizabeth. Each book will take you closer and closer to finding out the identity of The Hex Killer, the serial killer who ended Elizabeth’s short life. It will also bring you to the heart of the evil that’s come back to life to wreak revenge. 


An Excerpt 
“No, you can’t come over to explain! I know what I saw!”

Mia Chaukes, the pleasant girl with the quiet demeanor, was shouting. It was unusual for the sixteen-year-old to raise her voice or be this upset, but she wasn’t backing down. She couldn’t. Not after what she’d witnessed.

It went against everything she believed in.

Her eyes traveled the length of the pink walls. It had been her favorite color when she was younger and always put her in a good mood, but would it still work today?

She sought comfort from the color—and from the shelves lined with the vestiges of her past. Unicorns, teddy bears, and other stuffed toys were there with sunny smiles and arms outstretched for a hug, but they only served as a reminder that things had changed and would never be the same.

“Don’t you dare tell me that!” she blasted as more desperation came through the receiver … desperation and elaborate excuses.

Anything but the truth.

She wouldn’t be lied to … not anymore.

“Don’t you dare tell me I’m imagining things! I’ll hang up … I mean it!”

What would have happened if she hadn’t taken that way home? Or if she’d left earlier or later? Endless possibilities, one worse than the other, shot through her mind, each making her sick to her stomach. But before the nausea disappeared, an equally disturbing question rose to the surface.

What did happen?

Release Tour: Stronger (inevitable #6)





Title: Stronger (Inevitable #6) 
Author: Janet Nissenson 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: October 10, 2017 
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber Designs 



Cara has an admitted problem with hot men, falling so deeply and so quickly under their spell that she loses a little bit of herself with each toxic relationship that always seems to end badly. Every man in her young life thus far has let her down – her high school sweetheart, a college fling, and most of all her self-centered playboy father. She’s determined not to be a sucker for a handsome face and a hard body any longer, and has stuck to her guns for more than two years. And then she meets Dante.
Dante knows he has no business messing with cute little Cara. For one thing she works for his best friend, and more importantly she’s all kinds of wrong for him – too young, too innocent, too kindhearted. And given the mood he’s in these days – after the woman he was ready to propose to chose her career over him - a sweetheart like Cara should be running as fast as she can in the opposite direction.
But the only place Cara wants to run is right into Dante’s arms and stay a good long while. Will he wind up being the one for her – or is she destined yet again for another heartbreak?

     



She stared at him, completely at a loss for words, and unable to believe what she’d just heard.  “Huh?  Are you – I mean, you’re actually asking me to – to go out with you?  And, no, I don’t have a boyfriend or anyone I’m seeing, but I thought you did.  I mean,” she corrected herself hastily, miserably aware that she was babbling like a moron by this point, “not that you had a boyfriend, but a girlfriend.  Of course you don’t have a boyfriend, why would you, because you’re about the least likely person I could think of who - ”
Dante placed his index finger over her lips, giving a quick shake of his head.  “It’s okay,” he assured her, the corners of his mouth lifting up into a smile.  “I know what you meant.  And to answer your question – at least, I think there was a question in there somewhere – I’m not currently seeing anyone either.  I, ah, was in a relationship for a long time but that ended a couple of months ago.”
“Oh.  I’m sorry.  I hope I didn’t, um, touch on a sore spot,” she apologized awkwardly.  
“It’s okay,” replied Dante gently.  “I had a rough time of it for awhile, but I’m happy to say that things are finally starting to look up for me.  And I’d be even happier if your answer to my invitation is yes.”
Cara beamed up at him, nodding enthusiastically.  “It is definitely a yes!  I’d love to have dinner with you tomorrow.”
He glanced around anxiously, as though to make sure no one had overheard their conversation.  “That’s great news, Cara.  Though you should probably keep it to yourself, hmm?  I don’t know what the company policy is about employees socializing with clients, but no sense in rocking the boat, is there?”
“Oh!  Oh, gosh, of course!” she agreed.  “I won’t say anything to the others, I promise.”
Dante looked relieved, then extracted a business card from the inside pocket of his suit jacket before picking up a pen from the holder on her desk.  “Why don’t you meet me in the lobby of my office building?” he suggested, scribbling something on the back side of the little card.  “That way we don’t risk running into anyone here.  If you don’t mind, that is.”
“I don’t mind at all,” Cara answered with enthusiasm.  “What time should I meet you?”
“Let’s say six o’clock?  And I can send a car or a taxi to pick you up.”
She shook her head.  “Your office is less than three blocks away, and it’s not supposed to be raining or anything tomorrow.  Besides, I can use the exercise.”
He gave her one of those sexy, flirty little winks that he was wont to do whenever he stopped by the office.  “I wouldn’t say that,” he replied, his dark eyes giving her a brief but all-too-assessing onceover.  “You look very healthy to me, very fit.”
Cara grimaced.  “That’s because I’m usually sitting down when you see me, and you can’t tell how big my ass is from where you’re standing.”
Dante gave a shout of laughter, causing Deepak to glance over in their direction, frowning at having had his concentration disrupted.  Grinning wickedly, Dante lowered his voice.
“You’re very outspoken, aren’t you?” he asked in amusement.  “I like that.  And I have a feeling this is going to be a very interesting dinner.  Now, I’ve got to run, but I wrote my personal cell number on the back of that card.  Give me a call when you’re on your way tomorrow, so I can be waiting for you in the lobby.”
“Okay.”  She picked up the business card and tucked it into her purse for safekeeping.  “I’ll be looking forward to it.”
“Me, too.”  Dante gave the Minnie Mouse balloon another flick.  “And Happy Birthday, Cara.  Though consider tomorrow night the real celebration.”
