BLOG TOUR – Claiming His Family  (Higgins Security #2) by Ember Davis 


Title: Claiming His Family 
Series: Higgins Security Book 2

Author: Ember Davis 

Genre: Contemporary Romance 

CHLOE

I’ve spent most of my life making myself small so that no one pays attention to me and I can fly under the radar. Being a part of The Community wasn’t my choice, but it’s been my home for as long as I can remember. I want out, but I can’t sacrifice the only family I’ve ever known.

I want to keep pushing Ryder away. I need to. For his safety and the safety of everyone else who means anything to him and his family. I wish it could be mine too. They don’t seem to want to let me go, no matter how much I hide.

Ryder is always so close and yet so far away. Another man’s hands on my body is the last straw and before I can stop it, he’s claimed me as his own. I didn’t want to stop it anyway. I want him.

Maybe I can trust him to keep me safe.

RYDER

Chloe isn’t ready for me, but I can’t stay away from her. She’s hiding things and I don’t want to push her, but I can’t shake the feeling that she’s not safe. I want to always keep her safe.

She’s mine and there isn’t a thing in this world that will stop me from claiming her as my own.

Another man making a move on my girl is too much for me to take. Whether she’s ready or not, it’s time for her to know just how much she means to me. It’s time for her to let me into what scares her. She always tries to blend into the background, but I see her. More than that, I want her.

I’ll protect her from the family that never deserved her and give her a new one; a better one. I’ll make sure that no one makes her feel small again.

**18+. If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. This story is safe, no cheating, guaranteed HEA. It is a standalone and the second in the Higgins Security series, but it would be more enjoyable if you’re caught up with this Denver family.
Warning: This story does contain casual cannabis use, but not to worry, they live in a legalized state and are responsible members of society.**

BLOG TOUR – Unexpected Love  (Sweetwater Valley #1) by Ember Davis 

Title: Unexpected Love 

Series: Sweetwater Valley #1 
Author: Ember Davis 
Genre: Interracial Romance

LARK

Moving to Sweetwater Valley, where my parents live, is a chance to start fresh and see what the next stage in my life is all about. I thought for sure after Christopher’s death that I would spend the rest of my life alone with my two kids as my focus. Watching someone you love waste away leaves you broken and exhausted. A fresh start and a chance to breathe is all I’m looking for, maybe a pet once we are settled. I figure no one will ever want to take on the baggage of a 39-year-old woman with two kids. I didn’t think that I’d be swept off my feet by the resident, self-declared, bachelor for life who is nine years younger than me.

I moved to be closer to family, to hunker down and ride out the storm the last year blew in. I wanted time to adjust to life as a single mom while focusing on my writing. I’m prepared to face the judgement and small minds of a small town, considering my parents already faced it. I’m prepared for my black skin to raise eyebrows along with my blue eyed, light skinned children. I’ve faced all of that before.

There was no way that I could have seen Maverick coming or that he would be my lighthouse bringing me in from the storm.

MAVERICK

I’m content in my life, content with my revolving bedroom door without real connection and only physical satisfaction. Well, I try to convince myself that I’m content. I knew before my last hook-up that I need a change or else I’m going to run out of women that I haven’t taken to bed. That thought is as sobering as the realization that random women don’t hold the same appeal that they used to.

I don’t see many options outside keeping up appearances and playing the role that everyone expects of me. Floating through life with my bar, The Goose, as my only priority seems like my only option. I don’t see how I can have the wife and the kids that some of my friends have, so instead I watch and live the life I tell myself that I want.

Then I find Lark, my beautiful little bird with broken wings but a soaring soul.

Once I see Lark, everything changes. I know I have found my something more in her and her kids. I know that I can mend her broken parts. I know that I can be exactly what Lark and her kids need, if given the chance.

No matter who Sweetwater Valley thinks I am, I know I’m the man they need in their lives. I will prove it to the town, and I will prove it to them.

There was no way I could have seen Lark and her kids coming or that they would be the joy and the love that brings me light.

**18+. If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. This story is safe, no cheating, guaranteed HEA. Unexpected Love is an older woman/younger man, BWWM romance where the heroine deals with life after loss due to cancer (trigger). It is a standalone and the first in the Sweetwater Valley series.**

BLURB

Dear diary,

Just messin’ with you. I don’t have time for that crap, but here’s my story.

I was finally coming clean to my best friend about how this divorced, single mom attempted to get back in the dating game…and wound up with an old flame.

Enough stalling, it was time to spill it … ALL

Foster Montgomery was my best friend’s hot younger brother. Back in high school, we used to have a thing. And by “thing,” I mean we used to mess around–behind closed doors, because apparently, that was all I was good for.

Finally, many years later, I had the chance to get my revenge. If wet dreams, steamy make-out sessions on my couch, and “naked yoga” in my living room counted as revenge, then I nailed it!

He was still keeping secrets, but this time, I planned to make it known exactly what he’d done behind those closed doors.

About Kristie

I’m a feisty redheaded Canadian/American who fell in love with romance novels when my friend Phil bought me a Kindle that hasn’t left my side since.

My favorite books to read are anything taboo and super sick and twisted. I’m not sure I will ever write anything dark, but I would love to give it a shot one day.

I live in South Florida with my high school sweetheart and three kids.

I grew up in Burlington, ON, Canada but made the move to South Florida in 2013 and definitely don’t miss the snow.

I’m not sure where this writing journey will take me but either way, I know it will be a fun new adventure, and I’m super excited about it.

Survive a plane crash. Get marooned on a deserted island with a dirty, damaged alpha-hole. What could be worse? 
Alyona

Except, everything changes when our plane crashes.

The perils we face are pushing us together.
And keeping things professional is no longer an option once I’m set on making her mine.

The current was strong and pulling us away from the wreckage. I kept my arm around Aly, lifting her face. I creased my forehead, trying to work out our flight path. Where the fuck were we? 
An ice-cold shard of panic pierced the pit of my stomach. I tried to ignore it. Fucking impossible. For the first time in my life since I was a child, events had overtaken me. Were out of my control. And there wasn’t a damn thing I could do other than try and survive. 
Aly moaned and I whispered, “I’m here. You’re safe.” 
She shivered and I held her close to share my body heat. Not that there was much of that. I was chilled to the bone. 
I looked around again. 
We were surrounded by nothing but rolling waves.  
Stay calm. I repeated the words to myself like a mantra. 
Hours passed, it seemed, although I wasn’t sure. I felt completely disoriented. 
Aly had passed out again; I kept checking her pulse. My eyelids grew heavy and I wanted to doze off, but we’d be separated. 
The sound of splashing.  
A pod of dolphins had arrived, eyes flickering with curiosity.  
“Hey, guys,” I managed to rasp. “Come to rescue us?” I laughed at the absurdity of my question. 
With a wave of their tails, they left in obvious pursuit of some lunch. 
The current took us further and further away from where the plane had gone down.  
More splashing.  
Rhythmical this time.  
I swept my gaze around again and a slow smile of relief spread across my face. I let out a whoop. The sound I’d heard was the noise of waves hitting the barrier reef to an island. I could just see it in my peripheral vision. 
I kicked my feet so frantically my shoes came off. Using the arm not holding Aly, I swam hard, fighting the current that was sweeping us parallel to land. 
Kick, kick, kick. 
I spotted a break in the waves and managed to propel us through it into the calm waters of a lagoon. 
My lungs burning, I kept swimming until my feet touched the sandy bottom.  
With the last vestiges of my energy, I heaved Aly out of the water onto the shore.  
I turned her onto her side and tilted her head backwards. Then, totally wrung-out, I collapsed next to her.

She saw right through me. Every time the girl looked at me it was like she knew exactly what I was thinking. 

And why I was thinking it. 
It’s the why part that bothered me the most. 
I never wanted a girl like Sienna in my life. 
I never wanted a girl to embed herself into my soul so deep just trying to forget about her felt worse than slicing layers of skin off.
I never wanted to feel like this. For anyone.
But I had her and I fucking let her go. I let her go, and she filled the void. A void I’ve never been able to fill. Not in the ten years since I created it. I’ve tried my hardest, but nothing I do makes the hole feel any less painful.
But now she’s here. In my city. In my shop.
And I’ve been handed my second chance on a silver platter.
I’ll show her what she’s missing. 
I’ll show her exactly why I’m the only guy for her. 
And then I’ll make her hurt. 
Just as bad as I have.

Dear Liv,
Hope this letter finds you well. Fuck, what has it been? Nine years? Ten? I guess it would be about nine since that’s how old our daughter is. She found me, Liv. She wants to meet us—both of us. I thought we should make the decision together. I can come to you or you can come home. I know your momma misses you something fierce. Let me know what you decide.

Lincoln
It’s been ten years since I left. Turned my back on my home, my family, and him. I wasn’t strong enough to salvage what was left after we gave her up. I couldn’t bear to see the look of disappointment and blame in his eyes.
I should’ve fought harder for her; for us. Now, all the feelings I spent ten years burying are beginning to resurface from one letter; one single piece of paper. I’m not sure I have it in me to face my past but I know I can’t turn my back on her again; not when I gave up so easily the first time.

BOOK BLITZ – Scozzari (Deviant #3) by Jaimie Roberts

Series: Deviant #3 
Author: Jaimie Roberts 
Genre: Romance, Suspense 
Add on Goodreads 

Jeremy (Jez) Scozzari

At the age of four, I was kidnapped by an enemy of my father, and as a result of that day, I have learned to fight. Since the age of eighteen, I’ve been known as Jez (One Punch) Scozzari because the full force of my fist is enough to take down my opponent with just one hit.

With the help of my dad, I turned into a tatted up machine—built for speed, built for stamina … in all senses of the word. I was prepared to fight, prepared for practically anything. But nothing had prepared me for the girl who had once stolen my heart to come catapulting back into my life again. One look from her when she turned up that day at college, and I was back to when I was ten-years-old. She was my first crush … my first kiss. 

And now that she’s back, there’s no way I’m going to let her escape this time.

Caitlin Summers

When I was ten, I fell for a boy who stole my heart. He was sweet, kind, and gentle. He was my first kiss—the one who made a lasting impression. 

Then, at the age of thirteen, I had to move, leaving behind my heart which belonged to that sweet, kind, and gentle boy.

Now, I’m back, hearing that the sweet boy I left behind has turned into this tattooed bad boy with a reputation for fighting … and an equal reputation for sleeping around.

I was determined not to let him in. Determined to put my walls up so high that not even the famous “One Punch” Scozzari could penetrate them. 

But then came my first day of college when I saw him for the very first time in almost six years. One look from him and my solid walls came down with an earth-shattering crash. Just that one look and he had me … and he knew he had me.

That was day one of Jeremy stalking me.

I’m screwed.

Please note: This book is a standalone. However, it is recommended to read Deviant and Redemption first as it contains characters who are in Scozzari.

Warning: Contains scenes which readers may find upsetting. Please proceed with caution.

Tonight, Zoe wasn’t wearing the halter-neck dress. She appeared in figure-hugging jeans and a blue cotton blouse that set off the topaz in her beautiful irises. After declining a glass of wine, she sat next to me, shooting me a look from under her dark lashes.
Mrs K arrived with our starter course, a fresh vegetable salad made with cucumbers, tomatoes and onions. She served us and returned to the kitchen.
I swirled the wine in my glass. “I’m sorry if I was a little abrupt when we said goodnight yesterday.”
“Abrupt? You were more than abrupt.” Her eyes flashed. “You were downright rude.”
“I’m not a nice man. I don’t do ‘nice’. I can’t.”
“Why?”
Ever forthright.
“If I show any weakness, I’ll be finished.” I lifted my fork and speared a tomato.
She took a sip of water. “Being nice isn’t the same as being weak, I don’t think.”
“You are right, rybka. It isn’t.” I shook my head. “I guess I’ve just gotten out of the habit.”
She chewed some salad and swallowed. “Were you horrible to your wife? Is that why you got divorced?”
“None of your concern,” I snapped, slamming my hand down on the table. Dishes rattled and the water in Zoe’s glass sloshed over the edge.
She shot me a withering look. “There you go again, being a prick. I’m only trying to understand you, Taras.”
