Release Day Blitz: Fairy Tales Unleashed by Naima Simone

Fairy Tales Unleashed
Genre: Erotic Contemporary Romance
Synopsis:
In the world of fairy tales, being wicked has never felt so good…
Bargain with the Beast
Desperate to keep her neighborhood community center open, Gwendolyn Sinclair seeks out Xavier St. James, her childhood friend…and brother of her dead fiancé. Xavier possesses the funds necessary to keep the center open, but he offers another bargain—a devil’s bargain: submit her body to his pleasure for seven days and the building doesn’t close its doors.
Left scarred from an accident, Xavier is bitter, resentful and alone. When Gwendolyn reappears in his life, need and loneliness overrides conscience and he proposes an arrangement she can’t afford to refuse. With the woman he has always wanted—but could never have—finally in his bed, he hungers for more. Her heart. But could she come to love a beast?
A Perfect Fit

For no-nonsense, less-than-warm Rowyn Jeong, being labeled the plainer, wicked stepsister has never bothered her…until Darius Fiore reappears in her life. Months ago, they indulged in a hot one-night stand, and the sexy business tycoon branded her like no man had before. But his return threatens her position within her stepfather’s company, and he’s the man her stepsister Cindy has within her sights—and hands.

Behind closed doors, Daruis discovered more lay beneath Rowyn’s hard exterior than the ice queen she presents to her family. Now, he understands the aloof reserve. Her family’s disregard has left her hungry for love and acceptance. But breaking down her walls will be no easy task. Especially since his presence threatens everything she’s worked so hard to achieve.

Beware. These aren’t your mother’s bedtime stories…

Author Note: The erotic romance novellas included in this set–Bargain with the Beast and A Perfect Fit–have both been previously published in 2013. I haven’t changed them, except to combine the two novellas into one set. If you’ve read them under the titles Loving the Beast or Stroke of Midnight, then they’re the same books.

“What are you willing to do to save the center, Gwendolyn?”

Surprise snatched the air and words from her throat. An image swam before her—a cat with emerald eyes batting its paw at a mouse, toying with the unlucky rodent that bore an uncanny resemblance to her.

Leery and more than a little suspicious, she studied Xavier. “I-I don’t know what you mean.”

“Exactly what I said. What are you willing to do—to sacrifice—to save the community center?”

The better question would be what hadn’t she sacrificed to save the center? She’d agreed to a cut in salary, had extended her hours to compensate for the teachers’ shorter shifts. She opened the building at seven a.m. and locked the doors well after seven p.m. When she dragged into her small Dorchester apartment each night, her feet ached, her stomach grumbled and her head usually throbbed with worries about parents, bills and funding.

But right on the heels of those sacrifices came the rewards. The laughter of the children as they played kickball. The pride straightening the shoulders of the older teens as they walked across the stage to accept their high school diplomas. The gratefulness in a parent’s eyes as they picked up their child after work, knowing their son or daughter had been safe instead of in trouble on the streets.

“Anything,” she vowed. Yes, she was long on hours and short on pay, but the rewards couldn’t be numbered…or lost. “I’ll do whatever it takes to keep it open.”

A calculating gleam entered Xavier’s eyes and she almost retracted the pledge.

Oh God. So that’s what the devil looks like when he buys a soul.

“I can’t interfere with the grant application process at this late date,” he said, drawing his hands from his pockets and crossing his arms. “Whether the committee’s actions were right or wrong, to step in now would penalize the recipient and, regardless of how the decision came to be, that’s not fair.”

Tough shit. She snorted and Xavier arched an eyebrow.

“There’s another alternative.” He paused and she resisted the urge to glance over her shoulder and measure the distance to the door. Once again she was the mouse to his cat. Except he’d surpassed the toying stage and was licking his paws in preparation for dinner—her. “I’ll personally fund the community center for a year. I’ll donate a check in the exact amount of the grant.”

Joy soared in her chest even as relief flooded her veins, washing away the stink of desperation she’d worn for months. She hadn’t expected him to—

Suspicion delivered a ringing reality slap. Wait a minute. She narrowed her eyes. The offer was generous yet the man she’d encountered this evening didn’t strike her as the magnanimous kind. Niggling doubt warned her a booby trap loomed one step after her agreement to his gift.

“That’s generous of you,” she hedged. Then paused. “What’s the catch?”

“You,” he murmured. “You spend seven days and nights with me…in my bed.” His lashes lowered and he stared at her from under a hooded gaze that promised sex and sin. The timbre of his voice had deepened, conjuring images of dark, hot nights and naughty acts she’d read about, dreamed about…touched herself to. “In other words, Gwendolyn, give me your body for the next week and your precious community center remains open.”

Excerpt:

“You seem restless,” I said after a moment.

“I am,” Jasper said. “I don’t like this waiting around.”

“We should have gone back to my room,” I said. “If you want our guy to make a move, that is.”

“No, it’s not that,” Jasper said. “This is necessary. Getting away from the situation, getting perspective. We’ll get a bird’s-eye view of everything going on, and in the end, that’s how we’re going to beat this. It’s necessary, I just don’t like it.”

The minutes ticked by. Jasper cleaned his gun until it was spotless, then reassembled and holstered it. A clock hanging in the kitchen counted the seconds. The fire in the stove crackled away, the temperature in the room rising in increments.

Jasper cleared his throat, looked at me, glanced away. He tapped his foot against the floor, drummed his fingers on the arm of the chair.

Seeing him so agitated was strange. This was a man who could stand sentry for hours on end without so much as blinking an eye, and yet I could tell the lack of activity, the seclusion, was driving him a little bit crazy.

“I spy with my little eye something…green.” I batted my eyelashes at him when he turned to look at me, a hint of incredulity on his features. “What? I’m bored.”

“My T-shirt,” he replied drily, striding to the window and peering through the slit in the curtains. “Trust me, you’ll never beat me at that game. I see everything.”

“Arrogant much?” He didn’t reply; I sighed. “I have some cards in my purse. Want to play Go Fish?”

He huffed out a breath.

“Snap?”

No change.

“Strip poker?”

Finally, a flicker of interest, a change in the stiff lines of his posture.

“Aha.”

Looking back, away from the window, he pinned me with that intense stare of his.

“Aha, what?” But his gaze swept over me, top to bottom. My skin heated as he looked, and suddenly I wasn’t feeling so playful.

“I thought of something we can do to pass the time.” Sinking my teeth into my lower lip, I twisted my fingers in the hem of my T-shirt. “Something that might interest you a bit more.”

He turned fully away from the window; the resulting rush of blood through my veins made me dizzy, leaving me suddenly shy.

“Go on.” Crossing his arms over his chest, he leaned back against the rough-hewn wooden wall, watching.

Waiting.

Jasper Benjamin radiates raw masculinity that penetrates her to the core and ignites passion she’s never felt. Too bad for him, she’s not going to be easy to handle.

Excerpt:

“Get your hands off me!” I hissed as he used his body to herd me against the slender support beam that stood in the middle of the room. My hands were trapped behind my back where he’d twisted them, and I thrashed as he wrapped the belt around my upper arms and torso then around to the back of the column. “Jasper. You’re not seriously doing this.”

“My priority, above all else, is making sure that you stay safe.” Buckling the belt and pulling it tight, he leaned back to look me in the eye. My teeth started chattering when I realized that he was really, actually planning to leave me here. “I promise that you will be safe here. I just need ten minutes, okay? Ten minutes during which I know where you are.”

I shook my head, a chill settling over my body. It was completely irrational, and I knew it, but it didn’t stop the feeling. “I hate you.”

He didn’t even flinch. Instead, he slid a finger between the belt and my skin, testing its tightness. “You can hate me all you want, as long as you’re safe.”

Excerpt:

“You two know each other. From before the bar, I mean.” This wasn’t a question. No matter how kinky he was, I just couldn’t see Jasper looking up some guy we’d played with at the bar for a bit of follow-up nookie. “Want to let me in on the secret?”

Jackson smirked as he filled a champagne flute to the top with pale, frothy liquid. Tucking two bottles of beer dripping with condensation under his arm, he carried the wine to me, handing Jackson a beer before seating himself on the couch across from us.

I watched his movements, the precise control in them. I hadn’t noticed it before because I hadn’t been looking for it, but now I saw the similarity to the way Jasper carried himself. “You were in the Marines together.”

“Give the lady a doctorate.” Jackson smirked, toasting me with his own beer before twisting off the cap and taking a deep sip.

I turned back to Jasper, who was watching me intently, waiting to pick up on any sign of discomfort. “Do you work together now?”

“Jackson left the Marines not long after I did. Since he worships me so much, he decided to follow me into the world of protection.” Jasper drank, and I was distracted by the sensual line of his throat as he swallowed. “And since his services are not nearly as in demand as mine, he had nothing better to do than follow me out to out to freaking Meadow Ridge, Georgia, on assignment.”

“Wait.” I gulped down half of my drink before setting it on the coffee table in front of us. I pinned Jackson with a hard stare. “You must have known who I was when you approached me, then. Did you do it just to piss him off?”

Beside me, Jasper huffed out a breath; Jackson laughed.

“Sure, I knew who you were. I like your show.” Draining his beer, he set the bottle down beside my half-full champagne flute. “I approached you because you’re hot. It was my shitty luck that you’d already attached yourself to Jasper’s ugly-ass self.”

Beside me, Jasper snorted, and I sat back, evaluating my feelings. I felt like I should have been a little upset that neither man had let on that they knew each other that night. Instead, I found it kind of sexy. “You guys get handsy with each other’s women all the time?”

I tensed as soon as I spoke; I’d just referred to myself as Jasper’s woman. What would he think of that?

When I cast him a nervous glance, he was watching me intently, but he didn’t look like he was going to run screaming off into the night. Instead, he was focused on me entirely, and if I had to label the emotion I saw on his face, it would have been possessive.

“Jackson can’t help wanting what’s mine.” Jasper’s smile was dark and sexy. “But if we’re feeling nice, maybe we’ll let him play for a bit.”

Safe.

It’s a liar’s word. No one is ever truly safe.

Daniello still haunted me—in my bed, in my dreams, in a ridiculous notion of a future we would never have.

I was drawn to darkness, and he was the abyss.

My love for him made me flesh and bone—vulnerable.

I was finally a woman with something to lose and would do anything to keep it.

But when my past caught up with my present, it became clear that safe would forever remain an illusion.

Laz was coming for us, his looming darkness a threat to the life I carefully designed.

Armed with hope, and ready for battle, I never imagined the casualties of the war that came to me.

And then I lost all control.

Release Day Launch: Irrefutable by Kimberly Bracco

Title: Irrefutable
Series: Apprehensive Duet, Book 2
Author: Kimberly Bracco
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Release Date:  May 20, 2016
Quinn Taylor had a plan, and it didn’t include Alex Conway. 


With Quinn’s decisions no longer her own, her friends questioning her judgment, her life spinning out of control; she’s not sure about anything she once believed in. Alex has found something to believe in – Quinn. He knows what life is like without her and it a life he no longer wants to live.

Just when it seems things can’t get any worse, chaos ensues leaving them both out of time and out of options. Should Alex try for Quinn’s love without a guarantee in sight? Will Quinn be able to marry one man, to save herself, while knowing it will destroy the one man who truly loves her? Their lives are about to be flipped upside down – one way or another. Will they have the strength to work against life’s obstacles and find true happiness together? Can Alex get Quinn to see she’s about to make a huge mistake? Can he show her a side of love that’s irrefutable?


Can I trust him? That’s the biggest question I need to answer before I can say a word about the driving force of this wedding. A wedding that’s supposed to take place in less than eight hours. For two years I thought of Alex as this amazing man, the man who was going to change my world. I let him in—I gave him parts of me I never gave anyone else, and I’m not just talking about sex. Alex got further in than anyone else since my time as an immature teenager, and it ended in a lot of confusion and hurt. My walls are my safety net; I put them there for a reason. No one had ever gotten past them, and I thought that’s how it was always going to be—until Alex.

But Jordan made it in too. I tried to hate him, but it didn’t work. Jordan isn’t my enemy. How can I hurt him? He’s stood by me through everything my dad has done to me. He may not know the full weight of my father’s threats, but he’s still been my rock through it all. When everyone else had something negative to say about what we’re doing, Jordan had my back, to the point of being willing to marry me to save me.

review[1]
4.5/5 Stars

I’m a big fan of Ms. Bracco. Her characters come to life off the pages, even if I want to slap the hell out of the female leads. We meet Alex and Quinn in the Uninhibited series. Their characters where so great together I was rooting for their book. When I got it in Fallacy, I was like oh shit that’s what I’m talking about.

After reading Irrefutable, I’m still happy they got a story but only because of Alex. I do not like Quinn, at all, and that’s bad because she’s the lead. I wanted to like her and maybe at the end I could tolerate her, but that’s only because of Alex.

Alex is that perfect man, well mine anyways. He supported Quinn even after she tore his heart out and stomped on it. That man still had hope for the woman he loved, but that woman did not deserve him.

Ms. Bracco takes you through a journey with this book, she paints the picture and it comes together fabulously. It’s the journey of finding yourself, for both Quinn and Alex, although I don’t think Alex had far to look. When they came out on top, I was happy for them until the next chapter coming from Alex’s point of view. I swear that chapter broke my heart, then when the next chapter came from Quinn’s point of view, I was giving high fives to Ashley in my head. Because I swear she said what needed to be said.

Irrefutable is an emotional ride, I was happy, sad, angry and pissed off. (Last two mainly at Quinn.) It was a page turning, and if I were reading it as a life story, I would want both Quinn and Alex to come on top, if only for Alex’s sake.

 

Kimberly is a stay at mom of four crazy beautiful children. She lives in New Jersey with her husband of ten years and enjoys every minute of her never dull life. She loves a good book that is impossible to put down and you will mostly likely find her reading in her downtime, unless of course, there is a football game on.

Excerpt:

“I’m looking for my brother,”

The poor woman sitting at the desk is startled by my yelling at her.

“Name?” she asks. She is clam despite my outburst.

“Drew Roberts”.  A body moves up next to mine and realize that Luke has joined me.

The lady’s fingers begin flying across a keyboard before she looks up at me.

“Mr. Roberts is currently in surgery but you can go down the hall to the surgical waiting room and there’ll be an information desk there that can help you more.”

“Thanks,”

There is no time to wait as I take off in the direction she sent me.  Luke struggles to keep up with me as I race down the corridor.

“Katarina slow down” Luke calls to me.  I pause only a moment before continuing down the hallway as I walk into the waiting area I pull up short.

Bruce and Julie are huddled together.  Their faces somber. They are the only two family members I see and I briefly wonder where the others are. Bruce moves his head our eyes connect, he begins to stand. My body propels itself into Bruce’s waiting arms.  His eyes cut over to Luke silently acknowledging his presence but he never says a word. His arms wrap tightly around me holding me and bringing me the comfort I have been seeking since I talked to him this morning on the phone.

“He’s been in surgery around five hours now. They come out every hour or so to update us,” Bruce steps back facing me “So far things are going well.  He had three bullets enter him and two splintered.  They trying to get all pieces they can.”

My body sags. Bruce grip tightens on me to support my weight.  The relief of knowing Drew is still alive is enough right now.

Julie moves toward us, I see her out of the corner of my eye. I let go of Bruce and angle my body toward Julie when she engulfs me in a hug. We stand there hugging each other like we haven’t seen each other in ages.  Even though we had just spent a week in Vegas together last month.

“Well. Well look what the cat dragged in” an annoying voice that I have missed more than I will ever admit too.

Justin walks into the waiting room. Even though his tone sounded light and joking his face is somber his eyes not twinkling with their usual mischief.

“Justin” I exclaim throwing myself at him as he pulls me into him.

“Brought the replacement with you I see,” he whispers quietly referring to Luke.
