Title: BAD PENNY

Author: Staci Hart

Cover Designer: Quirkybird Designs

Photographer: Lauren Watson Perry

 

– SYNOPSIS –

 

Nothing good comes after the third date.

See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.

Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.

So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.

Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

– ABOUT STACI HART –

 

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

1001 Dark Nights Presents: Blog Tour and Review – Hold Me by J. Kenner

 


 

– ABOUT HOLD ME

 

My life with Damien has never been fuller. Every day is a miracle, and every night I lose myself in the oasis of his arms.

But there are new challenges, too. Our families. Our careers. And new responsibilities that test us with unrelenting, unexpected trials.

I know we will survive—we have to. Because I cannot live without Damien by my side. But sometimes the darkness seems overwhelming, and I am terrified that the day will come when Damien cannot bring the light. And I will have to find the strength inside myself to find my way back into his arms.

 

 

 

 


 

– EXCERPT –

 

I already know that Damien is running later than I am, because he’d called while I was stuck in traffic. Now I dismiss Bree for the night, then go peek in on both my girls. I want to wake them, to cuddle them close, but I let them sleep, contenting myself with watching the steady rise and fall of their little chests.

Then I take a quick shower, change into yoga pants and a T-shirt, and stretch out on our lovely iron bed, surrounded by paperwork.

That’s where I am when Damien finds me—although I’m asleep instead of busily working.

“Hey,” he says, brushing a kiss on my shoulder. “Long day?”

As I claw my way back to consciousness, he gathers my papers and sets them on the bedside table. There’s a glass of wine, too, and he hands it to me. I try to avoid alcohol since I’m breastfeeding, but I also did the research and know that a little bit isn’t a problem so long as I wait to pump or feed Anne.

“The longest,” I say, then take a grateful sip. I lean sideways against him, my back supported by the pile of pillows that rest against the wall. I give him the full rundown, the highlight of which is Eric’s surprising departure.

“You can handle continued growth,” he says, his loyalty giving me a nice warm boost of confidence. “But you’re also well-positioned to simply hold the line if that’s what you want to do. Even to downsize if it works out that way.”

I push away from him, frowning as my chest tightens uncomfortably. “What?”

“I’m just saying that you don’t have to go back to work full-throttle.”

I sit up straight. “Excuse me? Why? Because you can support us?”

“I can support us. But what I’m—”

“So I’m supposed to feel guilty about wanting to work just because you bring in billions?” Dammit, he knows how important my job is to me. How hard I’ve worked to build my business on my own, not relying on money that comes from Stark International.

He stares at me like someone might stare at a wild hyena. “That’s not what I’m saying at all.”

 

 

– REVIEW –

 

Nikki Stark finally has it all — a doting and gorgeous husband, two darling daughters, and a lifestyle that would envy most women.  As owner of Fairchild Development, an app developer, Nikki is proud of her accomplishments. Her husband, Damien Stark, a former tennis pro turned business mogul owns Stark International. He’s worth billions, and he adores Nikki. So why is it so important that Nikki head back to her own company after giving birth to their second child, Anne, when her heart is telling her to stay with her babies? Is Fairchild Development more important than missing milestone moments in her daughters’ lives? What demons compel Nikki to ignore her inner voice?

J. Kenner’s Hold Me is a Stark Ever After novella, and brought to you by the fine people at 1001 Dark Nights. A very short story, Hold Me is a delicious and satisfying treat for those readers who have been following Damien and Nikki’s story, but you absolutely do not have to be familiar with these characters to appreciate this novella. Nikki’s character deals with a dilemma many working mothers face on a daily basis, and this lends an appreciable depth to the story. Luckily, Nikki has in Damien a husband who lives to love her, and the steamy scenes between these two will have the reader wiping condensation off of, well, everything. But there is more to this story than billionaires dealing with childcare issues. While the Starks are certainly glamorous people, they are not immune to open wounds from tragic pasts. Credit the author for making Nikki and Damien very believable and sympathetic characters.

Mature reading, J. Kenner’s Hold Me is the kind of short story with substance that one finds so enjoyable whether its read at the beach, on a flight, or just hanging out at home.

Chapter Reveal: Jay Crownover’s Salvaged

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jay Crownover continues her delightfully sexy Saints of Denver series with the next thrilling standalone, SALVAGED! Don’t miss the amazing excerpt below and pre-order your copy today!

 


 

 

 

 


 

– ABOUT SALVAGED –

 

Hudson Wheeler is a nice guy. Everyone knows it, including his fiancée who left him with a canceled wedding and a baby on the way. He’s tired of finishing last and is ready to start living in the moment with nights soaked in whiskey, fast cars, and even faster girls. He’s set to start living on the edge, but when he meets Poppy Cruz, her sad eyes in the most gorgeous face he’s ever seen hook him in right away. Wheeler can see Poppy’s pain and all he wants to do is take care of her and make her smile, whatever it takes.

Poppy can’t remember a time when she didn’t see strangers as the enemy. After a lifetime of being hurt from the men who swore to protect her, Poppy’s determined to keep herself safe by keeping everyone else at arm’s length. Wheeler’s sexy grin and rough hands from hours restoring classic cars shouldn’t captivate her, but every time she’s with him, she can’t help being pulled closer to him. Though she’s terrified to trust again, Poppy soon realizes it might hurt even more to shut Wheeler out—and the intense feelings pulsing through her are making it near impossible to resist him.

The only thing Poppy is sure of is that her heart is in need of some serious repair, and the more time she spends with Wheeler, the more she’s convinced he’s the only man with the tools to fix it.

Poppy

I rounded the corner at the end of my block and came to a halt. The puppy took that as a sign that we were done playing outside and started jumping all over my lower legs and pawing at my shins. He whined at me until I picked him up, and as soon as he could reach my face, his little tongue started darting all over my chin and cheeks. I wondered if he could feel the tension that made my limbs stiff and the anxiety that tightened all my muscles. I felt my breath catch in the back of my throat and there was no stopping my eyes from rapidly blinking to make sure what I was seeing was real and not a figment of my imagination.

He looked like one of those black-and-white art prints that hung in every diner and restaurant I’d ever eaten in. The one that was a throwback to another era when cool was something you had to cultivate and couldn’t buy on Amazon. He was leaning against a black-and-silver car that looked like it should be on the cover of a hot-rod magazine and not parked on a busy and crowded Capitol Hill street. He had on dark jeans and a dark canvas jacket that had the logo of his garage embroidered on the front. His ankles were crossed on the curb in front of him and one booted foot bounced up and down, giving the impression that he’d been waiting for me for a while. His arms were crossed over his chest and his eyes were locked on mine as I stood still, unsure what to do. He had an effortless kind of charisma that radiated off of him. It was equal parts intimidating and irresistible. I was unsure if my feet wanted to rush me toward him or run me as far from him as possible.

The puppy made the decision for me. Seeing another human, and thus another opportunity for pats and rubs, he threw his wiggling little body out of my arms before I could react. He hit the ground with a little yelp and then bolted right for Wheeler. I let out a gasp and took off after him thinking I could catch the end of the leash that was trailing behind him. I didn’t want him to run into the road or veer off into a yard where he didn’t belong. I was light-years away from being able to handle a confrontation with a hostile stranger that didn’t want the puppy in their space.

I didn’t need to worry because Wheeler pushed his long, lean frame off the polished side of the car and reached the scrambling animal within just a few strides. He crouched down as the puppy hurled himself into his arms and scooped the excited bundle up in one fluid motion. Then he was rising back up to his full height, which meant he was towering over me when I made my way over to where he was standing. I was embarrassed at how out of breath I was. I was supposed to be stronger than I was before, but I could hardly handle a little jog up the block or the way my heart raced at the sight of him.

I shook my head and put my hands on my hips as I looked up and into those arctic eyes. He was scratching the puppy under the chin and looking at me from under lashes that had the barest hint of red to them. “Why don’t you have a coat on?”

It wasn’t what I was expecting but his question reminded me that I was cold and that the lightweight hoodie that had the Saints of Denver logo on it wasn’t doing much to keep the bitter chill in the air off my skin. The shirt came from the tattoo shop where both Rowdy and Salem worked and was probably the most exciting garment I had in my closet. It was the only thing I owned that was bright and colorful. I rubbed my arms up and down and fired my own question right back at him. “What are you doing here?”

The puppy barked like he was telling me not to be rude but I was unsettled by Wheeler’s unexpected appearance, and not the typical unsettled that I struggled with because he was a man that I didn’t know. It was the kind of unsettled that made parts of my body I forget could react to an attractive man feel warm and tingly. The kind of unsettled that had me involuntarily leaning closer to him as he started to shift so that he could pull his heavy jacket off one arm without letting go of the dog.

“I wanted to talk to you about the dog. Did you find someone to take him yet?” He shifted the puppy to his now bare arm as I watched the endless amounts of ink that covered his skin move and flex as he shook his other arm free of the coat.

“Uh…not really.” The truth was I hadn’t really put that much effort into finding someone because I didn’t want to let the puppy go. In just a few days I’d grown surprisingly attached even though I knew I wasn’t allowed to keep him in my apartment. I’d already asked since Dixie was allowed to keep Dolly, but the landlord informed they were grandfathered in before the laws surrounding pit bulls in Denver changed. My little guy wasn’t that lucky.

My response made Wheeler chuckle. He stared at me silently as he held out the coat he’d taken off in his free hand.

“Put this on.” I stared at him like he’d suddenly started speaking Russian until he shook the coat again and frowned at me. His voice was serious and left no room for argument when he repeated the command. “Put this on, Poppy.”

TST Golden Czermak RELEASE DAY 2

 

– REVIEW –

 

Confession: I love anything to do with the steampunk culture, so when the opportunity arose to read Golden Czermak’s The Steam Tycoon, I grabbed that brass ring!

It is four hundred years after the Great Burning — a time when the depletion of fossil fuels lead to the collapse of civilization, bringing about death and disease — and the world now relies on the power of water as its source of energy. Both good and evil factions within the cities of the supercontinent, Eaugen, are on a constant search for technology that will enhance their methods of producing a sustainable power source.

Jesse Winthrope is at the helm of Winthrope, Ltd., one such energy producer. A young and noble soul, Jesse inherits Winthrope, Ltd, after the murder of his father, Maximilian. Headquartered in the city of Diablo, Jesse’s company is the proprietary manufacturer of steam capsules, as well as the prized WHESE (Winthrope High Efficiency Steam Engine). Young Jesse sees the good in the elevation of all citizens, not just the elite. He has distain for the repression of a people based upon their situation in life.

Across town, Lucas Frost, owner of Frost Industries, represents the greed and evil faction that has no use for the downtrodden. An abusive tyrant, Lucas has longed to be rid of Jesse, along with Jesse’s moral code. Lucas has coveted Winthrope’s technology and waits for the day he can claim it as his own. In order to do that, he needs to rid the world of Jesse Winthrope.

Golden Czermak’s The Steam Tycoon is the first entry of his new Steam Tycoon Series, and I loved it. More science fiction than romance, Czermak has incorporated the tenets of steampunk philosophy and culture into a suspenseful and imaginative story. While rife with heroes and villains, the main character of the story was, for me, all the great steampunk! We have steam propelled weapons, goggles that allow sight through clouds, flying ornithopters, bowlers and corsets! We have bots for pleasure and bots for work, holotubes for communication, cogs and gears for currency! And let’s not leave out the camelos and lutrines! Czermak’s detail in the construction of his steam society is fantastic, and his characters all serve to enhance the author’s steampunk universe. Heroic Jesse Winthrope stands true to his beliefs, and for that, he gains the love of Jenny Boone — a woman who society would label lower class, therefore an unworthy match for him.  Again, the author holding true to steampunk philosophy regarding the necessity of rebellion fueled by class repression.

I could go on and on about the details and characters in The Steam Tycoon, but if you’re unsure about the whole steampunk culture, think of this story as a bit of Jules Verne meets The Wild, Wild West — it’s an adventure, a romance, a fast-moving ride through the steampunk universe. Hitch a ride on an ornithopter and enjoy!

Golden Czermak’s The Steam Tycoon contains scenes of graphic violence and sex, and is for mature audiences.

In the beginning, Golden worked the standard corporate rat race, completed college for a Chemical Engineering Degree, and began a small photography company on the side.

Having been in the industry for at least four years, he has interfaced and networked with countless authors and other clients. As part of his work as a photographer, he worked with them to create book cover images – now numbering well over 400 at the beginning of 2017.

Learning the ins and out of the book world, along with being an avid reader and storyteller himself, Golden finally decided to write and publish his first book, Homeward Bound, in June 2016. This paranormal adventure romance will span a total of six books and new ideas for other stories are in the works as well.

1001 Dark Nights Presents: Review and Excerpt Tour – Rebecca Zanetti’s Tangled

We are so excited to bring you the Review & Excerpt Tour for TANGLED by New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti! TANGLED is a novella in her Dark Protectors-Reese Family Series brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights! Grab your copy of this sexy  novella today!


 

 

– ABOUT TANGLED – 

 

From New York Times bestselling author, Rebecca Zanetti, comes a new Dark Protectors—Reese Family Novella.

Now that her mask has finally slipped…

Ginny O’Toole has spent a lifetime repaying her family’s debt, and she’s finally at the end of her servitude with one last job. Of course, it couldn’t be easy. After stealing the computer files that will free her once and for all, she finds herself on the run from a pissed off vampire who has never fallen for her helpless act. A deadly predator too sexy for his own good. If he doesn’t knock it off, he’s going to see just how powerful she can really be.

He won’t be satisfied until she’s completely bare.

Theo Reese had been more than irritated at the beautiful yet helpless witch he’d known a century ago, thinking she was just useless fluff who enjoyed messing with men’s heads. The second he discovers she’s a ruthless thief determined to bring down his family, his blood burns and his interest peaks, sending his true nature into hunting mode. When he finds her, and he will, she’ll understand the real meaning of helpless.

 

– REVIEW –

“For years, she’d tried to avoid Theo Reese. He was too smart, too strong . . . too male. The born soldier in the family. Her damsel act had never worked on him, and that was damn unfortunate.”

Ginny O’Toole

Tangled

Kindle Loc. 337 of 1842

Don’t feel too bad for Ginny — she’s a witch who happens to enjoy a little thieving on the side. Unfortunately, Ginny’s light fingers have lifted a thumb drive that contains vital information belonging to Theo Reese — a hottie vampire who happens to be a soldier for The Realm.

Suffice to say, Theo is not happy when he discovers the delectable witch will not return the stolen information. (She has her reasons.) Additionally, there’s some bad blood between Theo and Ginny (pun intended). At one time, it was thought Ginny was mated to Theo’s brother, Jared, but that proved not to be the case.  Theo’s held a bit of a grudge against Ginny since then, thinking Ginny used a bit of magic to “unmate” herself from the supposedly  heartbroken Jared. But with Jared having successfully mated with his true love, Ronni, Theo recognizes his emotions towards Ginny go beyond the anger he once held for her. He wants the witch with a passion. In fact, Theo recognizes that Ginny is his mate.

Ginny has a lot on her mind, and while she wouldn’t mind some slap and tickle with the brooding vampire, the last thing Ginny needs in her complicated life is a mate. Other villainous characters factor into Ginny’s dangerous game — more than just her life is at stake. Mating with Theo would just put him in the cross-hairs of her enemies, and she won’t take that chance. Turns out, Ginny’s feeling more than a little sumthin’ sumthin’ for Theo, too.

Will Theo be able to convince his mate that she can trust him with her life, or will Ginny’s secrets get them all killed? Only one way to find out . . . .

Tangled is the third and final installment in the Reese Family novellas that are part of author Rebecca Zanetti’s fabulous Dark Protectors series. You do not have to have read the prior two stories in the trilogy (Teased and Tricked) to enjoy Tangled, but as the action between the three novellas occur over a period of a few months, I would recommend reading all three, back to back.

Rebecca Zanetti’s vampires are wondrous — they’ll down a beer, eat a burger, and, during scorching moments of passion with their mate, they’ll reveal their true eye color. Theo Reese is the perfect paranormal romance vampire. He’s got it all — the looks, the heart, the skills, the fangs. The chemistry between Theo and Ginny is immediate and palpable. The electricity between these two is reminiscent of static in the air before a thunderstorm — the reader feels the sizzle. Ginny is flirtatious, charming and is the perfect foil to Theo’s rigid temperament.

With non-stop action, and a cast of well-written, delectable paranormal characters, Rebecca Zanetti’s Tangled is a treat not to be missed.

– ABOUT MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY –

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the owner’s handsy-as-hell sister who seems dead set on winning more than a date with me at the auction.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me the next day that we’ve got to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.

Violet says she’ll take one for the team and pretend to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport. And soon enough, I want this game with her to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

 

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

 

*MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!*

Ryder - About the Book
Ryder's ebook cover.jpg 

If secrets fester long enough they will devour a person’s soul, leaving them black and dying on the inside, blocking the smallest glimpse of healing light. 

With steadfast focus, Ryder Casteel immerses himself in the club, working tirelessly alongside his brothers of the Knights Corruption to figure out how to end the war with the Savage Reapers once and for all. The last thing he needs is the distraction of a feisty blonde. 
 
Her sassy mouth intrigues him.
Her willingness to go toe-to-toe ignites the fire inside.
But when his nightmares suddenly return, he’s forced to reveal his secret.
A tragedy that happened many years ago, eventually shaping the man he became.
Braylen Prescott lives a charmed life. She’s happy. Content. Then in the blink of an eye, her world changes when a gorgeous biker captures her interest.
 
He’s blunt..
He’s crass.
He renders her speechless.
But is the imminent danger surrounding him worth losing everything?

Ryder - About the Author
S. Nelson grew up with a love of reading and a very active imagination, never putting pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard until 2013.. Her passion to create was overwhelming and within a few months she’d written her first novel, Stolen Fate. When she isn’t engrossed in creating one of the many stories rattling around inside her head, she loves to read and travel as much as she can. She lives in the Northeast with her husband and two dogs, enjoying the ever changing seasons.
