*** COVER REVEAL ***
book #1 of ‘the manwhore series’
March 24, 2015
Is it possible to expose Chicago’s hottest player—without getting played?
This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.
Mysterious. Privileged. Legendary. His entire life he’s been surrounded by the press as they dig for tidbits to see if his fairytale life is for real or all mirrors and social media lies. Since he hit the scene, his secrets have been his and his alone to keep. And that’s where I come in.
Assigned to investigate Saint and reveal his elusive personality, I’m determined to make him the story that will change my career.
But I never imagined he would change my life. Bit by bit, I start to wonder if I’m the one discovering him…or if he’s uncovering me.
What happens when the man they call Saint, makes you want to sin?
Burying myself in work mostly keeps thoughts of him to a screaming minimum, until he’s thrust into my life under circumstances beyond my control. Despite my need for his protection, this time I’m not sure if I’m strong enough to survive with my heart intact.
He is Black: a fierce protector and irresistible charmer.
I am Red: a trouble magnet and rainbow weaver.
Together we ignite. Explosive colors merging at the hottest melting point.
Mister Black ~ In the Shadows #1
We all have someone who crossed our path and fundamentally changed us. That one person who blew through our lives, their presence forever stamped on our psyche. They linger in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in the decisions we make. A soul crusher or a dream maker, depending on the perspective.
My person is MISTER BLACK.
I didn’t know him by that name when I first met him.
I didn’t know him at all, but the impression he left behind was just as powerful as the name I call him today.
He is Black: a deadly enforcer and masterful seducer.
I am Red: a justice bleeder and willing participant.
Together we are passion. Colors colliding through each other’s lives.
When our secrets converge in a passionate encounter,
stepping out of the shadows just might be worth the risk.
NOTE: MISTER BLACK is meant for readers 18+ due to mature content. This is part 1 in the IN THE SHADOWS serial and is 125 print pages. Part 2, SCARLETT RED, is novel-length at 275 print pages

Pepper Ryan grew up the troublesome, spoiled child of a rock god. With her less-than-stellar parentage, and the bipolar disorder that has plagued her existence, to say this little firecracker is a handful would be the understatement of the century.Sammy Belle spent more than half his life saving Pepper. He’d been her strength, her sanity, and the protective brotherly figure she never wanted to have.They were never meant to be together.They gave in anyway.And just when Sammy thought he had everything he wanted, Pepper ran.Now twenty-three, Pepper returns to Sugartown, a failed tattoo artist with one too many screws loose who’s down on her luck, wielding an ice cream van as beaten up as her heart.Sugartown’s most coveted bachelor has always been content with the quiet life he leads until Pepper, the hellion from his past, returns to test his strength, his patience, and perhaps even his sanity. But two can play at that game, and Pepper is about to learn that Sam can give as good as he gets.Can this good country boy survive Pepper’s cruel city world, or will the whole thing be put down to a bout of temporary insanity?One thing is for certain:He’s crazy about her.She’s just crazy.
Warning: Intended for an 18+ audience. Contains sexual content, oodles of profanity, a firefighter so hot you may need a very cold shower, and one pink-haired crazy Harajuku girl.
I squirt a little lotion from the bottle – Pepper’s expensive stuff that smells like cupcake batter – and run my hand over the head of my cock, and down the rigid length as I think about her in that dress. Then I think about tearing off that dress, and covering her tattoos with my mouth as I take her on the bathroom sink. I slide my cock in and out of my grip, imagining it’s her perfect, wet pussy. Pinching my nipple hard, I picture her teeth clamped down over the sensitive flesh.
I groan. My muscles tense, my balls shrink up close to my body, and then my orgasm rips through me at the same time that the bathroom door is flung wide. Pepper hobbles into the room, her hands clutching the hem of her dress. I turn in an effort to hide the evidence from her, but my cock is still spilling seed. Come hits the fan and flies off in all directions as I grind out the last of my orgasm, and a final burst of semen spills from my cock.
I don’t even have time to bathe in the afterglow because Pepper is sending me death glares in the mirror and her mouth is twisted into a sneer.
“YOU. GOT. COME. IN. MY. HAIR!”
I practically bust a nut laughing. Loud, unruly guffaws that are so incredibly inappropriate right now that I’m afraid she might actually hurt me.
“You got come in my hair!” She screams again.
“I’m so sorry.” I say, still howling with laughter.
“You got come in my hair ten minutes before my mother’s wedding.
She’s also a compulsive, flagrant prevaricator who gets to make things up for a living.
just like her characters, she always longed for something more. They didn’t have an Elijah Cade, though. If they did, you can be sure she would have never left.

Add to Goodreads:
Raking my fingers through my close-cut brown hair, a melting pot of feelings starts to find its way to the top. Despite having gone through a pre-release programme, I don’t think anything can prepare you to take control of your life again. Suddenly being thrown out into the big bad world, with the roar of busy traffic ringing in my ears, the change in sights, smells and surroundings has become too much for me to take in. Where were the familiar sounds of inmates yelling abuse at one another, and the guards shouting at them to pipe down?
Me? I kept to myself, under the radar, not wanting any trouble. That didn’t mean to say I’d take any shit. I guess that attitude was passed on by my father, Edward Sanders, Attorney General for the state of Massachusetts. I’d heard he was recently re-elected, apparently very successful in the American political system. But to me, he was and still is a force to be reckoned with.
I suppose I should be grateful for having him for a father. Despite the shit hitting the fan when I was arrested, and everything that followed, he stuck around. I well and truly rubbed his face in it, yet he persevered, fought tooth and nail to keep what happened from being exposed to the entire country. Hell, for that matter, the whole world! I’m not crazy, I realise most of it was to cover his own ass; he had too much to lose if the truth came out.

A J Walters is a contemporary romance author and an Amazon #1 Bestseller in Women’s Fiction. Having interests in history, romance and elements of erotica, she has brought all of these together in her debut publications; The Attraction Series.
Wanting to break the trend of size 12 virgins in books, A J Walters has introduced a new real woman in Isabel Chambers. She’s a size 18-20, working single mother who now feels is it her time to start living her life again. At the ripe young age of 39 (at time of writing 1st book), A J Walters also wanted to show that you can experience everything that a twenty-something would.
“I saw that a 39 year old isn’t quite at retirement age for fun, sex and finding love again. There are so many women out there that can be represented in books as well as the slim, innocent and beautiful types. Don’t get me wrong I love reading books with them in, but there is so many of them around now I felt is was time for something different. I’d like to think I brought my sense of humour across in it as well. I am ditsy, I suffer from ‘foot in mouth’ syndrome, but I can also be serious and sentimental. From the feedback I’ve had, apparently it makes for a great writing voice.”
A J Walters has since gone on to publish 2 books in The Attraction Series; An Acute Attraction and A Constant Attraction. The 3rd book of the series, An Enrapturing Attraction is expected to be published in January 2015.
As well as writing this series of books, she has also written a short story for a summer anthology and is now an Amazon #1 Bestseller in Women’s Fiction for her publication of Lust, Love, Dreams and Heartache: A book of romantic and erotic poetry.

BLP Review ~ Tracy
It’s no secret that I’m a great big #parawhore and my all time favourite species is the shifter – I’m not fussy about what animal they are, as long as they are shifters (though I have to admit that hot and sexy is a preference!!!) – so, you can imagine my delight when I read that the hero in Hunted by a Jaguar was a great big sexy shifter!!!
The Eternal Mates series is fab. Felicity has created a fascinating world where elves, shifters, witches, demons, dragons, humans et al exist & interact (ok, sometimes those interactions are battles but hey ho!!). The stories are action packed and there is a thread that runs through the series that connects all of the stories, though they could be read as standalones.
Hunted by a Jaguar is Kyter and Iolanthe’s story. We met the shifter barman earlier in the series and from that you just knew that he’d be an interesting character. Kyter is strong, fierce, determined and in the human world he is his is own man who comes across as very confidant… BUT given that this is one of Felicity’s heroes, he’s also got secrets and a past that has broken him…. Poor K, for a large part of the story I wanted to give him a hug he was so vulnerable and unsure of himself at times!!! (granted, it would have been a naked hug, in a huge big bed somewhere quiet… oh don’t judge, YOU know what I mean!!)
Iolanthe is a kick arse heroine and man, does she ever kick Kyter’s arse – as well as a few others!!!
We don’t know much about her for a fair part of the story but there’s a few hints as to who and what she is… I really liked her – she takes crap from no-one, is bloody minded, focused on her mission (well, she was until she met Kyter!!) and she had a good heart – not forgetting that she’s hot – just what our big bad Jaguar needed!!
As with the rest of the books in the series, the plot was fast paced and exciting with a few twists and surprises that had my heart racing at points. The heat and attraction between K & I was visible from the start and when this pair got it together, jeez they were smokin’ hot!!!
This is the 4th book in the EM series and personally it’s my favourite – can you believe that someone bumped Vail from top spot?!??!. Hunted by a Jaguar is a fantastic read and Felicity has got another success on her hands!
I’d thoroughly recommend you jump into the paranormal world of the Eternal Mates, it’s a helluva journey!!

The fourth instalment in the Severed MC series finds Cowboy wrestling with his demons. Can he go on, or is he too broken after everything he’s endured?
Meanwhile the citizens of Severed are caught up in a war, and it’s down to Severed MC to try and save them.
This book is going to blow your mind.
It’s dark when I let myself into Emma’s apartment. Even if everything has gone to plan, I know it will be tomorrow before she gets back.
I shouldn’t have let her embark on this crazy scheme of hers on her own. But, she was so determined; nothing and no one could sway her from her path.
I sink into her sofa, guilt eating away at me.
I’m carrying a shit load of guilt around with me these days. Guilt that I’ve let Emma go in search of a madman, guilt that I didn’t rush into that cabin in time, guilt that I sat there in the shop whilst Danni died just feet away, guilt for not getting to Cassie quickly enough and even more guilt that in my stupid ignorance I hadn’t realized she was still alive when I got there.
There’s so much guilt it feels like a fucking cancer, destroying me from the inside out.
I sit there in the darkness, alone. I feel so fucking alone all the time now, even when I’m in a crowd of people. Emma’s spent the last three months focused on revenge. It’s the only thing that’s kept her going. It was the reason she needed to get out of bed in the morning. I don’t have a focus and I sure as shit don’t have a reason for getting out of bed anymore.
This is a dangerous time of night. The time between midnight and dawn. It’s the time where I let the dark thoughts take over. Would anyone miss me if I were gone? I really don’t think they would. I think they’d be better off if I wasn’t here. I’m just a dead weight now.
I’ve lost weight. My jeans and shirt hang from my hollow frame. I have no interest in eating. I’ve been keeping my own company most of the time. Not that anyone’s really noticed; they’re all so busy living their own lives, as they should.
The last three months, hell, the last six months, have been the scariest that most of us have lived through. We’ve been hunted, betrayed and picked off, one by one. I’m such a selfish prick I didn’t notice when my best friend was falling apart and turning into a rat. How could I not see the hell that he was going through? Perhaps though, he just learned to hide it well. A skill I’ve come to master myself of late.
I try to think of anyone who’d be better off with me in their life and I’m sad to say that I can’t. Sure, a few people would shed tears if I wasn’t around anymore, but they’d soon pick up and move on with their lives. Angel has Eve and Elizabeth. Prez has Teresa and they’re expecting a baby. Emma’s going to move on with her own life once tonight’s over. Come tomorrow, she won’t need me anymore.
I understand now what I have to do. It’s like a fog has lifted, revealing the clear path lying ahead of me.
I turn the polished metal in my hands. Such a small thing, yet it can destroy so many lives. Tonight though I’m going to use it to make other people’s lives better. That’s got to be a good thing. Right?
I place the barrel of the gun in my mouth, closing my lips around it. Am I supposed to say a prayer now? Make a peace with my God?
The problem is I no longer have faith. How can you watch so many people you love die and still have faith in a religion?
It’s selfish of me to do this here. It’s not fair on Emma. She’s tough though. She’ll handle it. She’ll get over it.
Spinning the barrel, I leave the decision to fate. Bracing myself, I pull the trigger. The click of the gun masking the soft click of the door opening.
Russian fucking roulette. The pull of the trigger is the only noise the gun makes. Fate has decided. She’s not done with me yet.

When you’ve tried your best for years and never managed to please your demanding parents… When you’ve fallen head over heels for someone who keeps ignoring you… When you’ve hit rock bottom.
Tessa is this close to giving up – on her authoritative parents and their demands, on her studies, on everything in her life.
Including Dylan. The one boy she has loved since she can remember. The one who dated her and promised her forever when they were fourteen, and then dumped her without an explanation only to ignore her ever since.
The one who shows up to save her from the hands of her abusive ex before the stroke of midnight, who kisses her and holds her close, only to tell her in the course of the same night he doesn’t love her.
Tessa knows Dylan has gone through some tough times, and they’re only getting tougher – but is he telling the truth about his lack of feelings for her, or is he running from his own demons?
The way Tessa sees it, she has two options: run away, leaving it all behind – or stay to fight against her controlling family, and win back Dylan. She has a feeling he needs her, and how can she leave when he’s the only man who’s ever made her feel alive?
Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.
