~Release Blitz~
Shoot For The Moon, Book 2 ~ Black River Series by Rochelle Paige

Blurb:

Eliza Reve knows that her ability to dream of future events sets her apart from others. Her gift became a curse when she wasn't able to save her mother or the alpha's son and she found herself exiled - a lone wolf. When she joins the Black River Pack, Eliza vows never to reveal her talent to anyone. Not even the man who has walked in her dreams for years.

Spencer Tate is her mate, but her visions have told her that he will renounce her. When he doesn't recognize her as his mate, she agrees to the no-strings-attached affair he offers because she thinks it's the most she can hope for. Although her heart breaks as she falls deeper in love with him, she wants to spend as many days with Spencer as possible before he kicks her out of his life.

When Spencer finally comes to his senses, he has his work cut out for him to convince Eliza that he wants her forever. When another she-wolf insists she's his mate instead, things get even more complicated. But Spencer isn't the alpha's second and enforcer because he isn't willing to fight for what's his, and he refuses to settle for anything less than Eliza as his marked and claimed mate.

This is book two in the Black River Pack series. Each novella will feature a different couple.

Book Title: Obsidian Faith 
Author: Bev Elle 
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance 
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Synopsis

They were the most unlikely pair to fall in love. . .
A golden boy with a dark past. A bi-racial girl with epic faith. These two weren’t supposed to survive the system, sketchy origins and all. Trevor Kyle has loved Shanice Bailey forever—from the time they both landed in the Baptist Children’s Home until they were young adults raised by adoptive families that had no resemblance to the worlds from which they came. Trevor has always been her protector and champion even when he was busy pushing her away for her own good. Shanice has always taken her faith in Trevor seriously. Her childhood oath is strengthened when she learns the true meaning of family. But After Trevor’s adoptive parents die tragically and his bachelor uncle takes him in, she finds that the boy she’s always looked up to has changed, and not for the better. Yet, she can’t bring herself to forget him as her pure childhood love for him blossoms into something more. The most generous heart and truest faith does not travel an easy path. Just when Trevor thinks he’s found a way to keep his promise to be with Shanice forever, a specter from the past threatens their future plans. 

  excerpt   

 EXCERPT, Obsidian Faith, Chapter Twelve 

 “You want to be a doctor?” Trevor said. “No, a nurse. I want to help people get over drug addiction and stuff, but I don’t want to go to school for all the years it takes to be a doctor.” “That’s cool. Just don’t fall for some doctor and forget about me,” he teased. “I’d never forget you, Trevor,” she said. “And I’ll never fall for some doctor.” “How do you know?” he said. “You’ll go off to college and I’ll be as good as forgotten.” “You’ll forget me first,” she said. “You already have. You’re the one who’s taking Emily Winters to the prom and everything.” “It’s just another rite of passage.” “A what?” “It’s one of those things you’re expected to do at certain ages that transition you from one stage in life to another.” “Oh, well. I’m not passing any rites with anyone but you,” She said. “You’re too young to say that, Shanice. You’ve got a lot of growing up to do.” “So do you.” She protested, just as he expected her to. “Yeah, but I’m closer to twenty-one than you are, and I’ll be going off to college in a couple of years.” “I know, but I won’t forget you,” Shanice said with conviction. “How do you know this?” Trevor asked. “Because I’m going to be like Amy March in Little Women.” “Never heard of it,” Trevor said. “Probably because boys think it’s stupid. But there is a Little Men, and Jo’s Boys and they’re about orphans and stuff. Anyway, they’re classics. Mom read the books when she was about my age, so she gave them to me for Christmas.” “What does this have to do with you not forgetting me?” “You’ll have to read Little Women to find out,” she said cryptically.

COVER REVEAL - STEELING MY HAART BY LIZZY ROBERTS

10866661_10152885080004351_1646771488_n

Cover Reveal

SteelingMyHaartCover_Working_1

Book Title: Steeling My Haart 
Author: Lizzy Roberts 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Release Date: March 2015 
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

Synopsis 

 Eight years ago a tornado devastated the community of Glen Springs. That same night my heart was torn to shreds when he left. Now, all I have to live for is work. I’m successful and have a good life, just like he wished. So, why am I so unhappy? A tragedy is bringing me home and I’m now finding my well ordered and successful life hurled into a whirlwind of uncertainty. The biggest threat of all comes in the shape of Charlie Haart, the number one reason I have stayed away from Glen Springs for so long. 

  excerpt 

 *** Unedited and subject to change ***
 After what felt like hours, Charlie could still hear the siren still blaring above them. This was one bad storm cell and it sounded like they were far from being out of the woods yet. Fumbling about the dark shelter, he could just see the outlines of a couple of boxes and a cupboard in the far corner of the small underground room. As the lightening flashes continued to light the room sporadically he was able to release a shaking Emma and attempt to find some light. “Sweetheart, I just need to reach over there and see if there is any candles or a torch, ok? I will be right back and won’t leave you, I promise.” He saw her nod her head in acknowledgement and fumbled across and found a box of candles and some storm matches in one of the boxes. When he has finally lit a few candles, the room looked a little less scary and was pretty well stocked. It seemed as though the old lady had kept this place provisioned with a few bits right up until she moved. Charlie saw Emma cowered in the same spot, in mild shock no doubt and he scooted towards her taking her once again into his arms. She was quiet, almost too quiet and as he scanned around the room he saw that there was a huge, yet, comfy looking sofa covered in some beautiful handmade quilts and gently lifted her across the room and gently laid her on the sofa, covering her with a couple of the patchwork quilts. As he went to seek out the other boxes in the shelter, Emma reached out and grabbed his arm. “Thank you.” The tiny quivering voice echoed round the room. “Thank you, Spark. You literally just saved my life. Twice.” Then she burst into a heart-wrenching sobbing fit. Charlie gently climbed on to the sofa with her and took her gorgeous, tear-stained face tenderly into his hands and wiped away the tears with his thumbs. Kissing her forehead gently he replied, “My absolute pleasure sweetheart. Knowing there could be a world without you in it would completely break me do you know that? I would die before I’d let anything happen to you Emma. I really would.”

EXCERPT

Delaney held up a light pink sweater to her chest. “This is hideous. You have to trash this

thing.” She flung it behind her.

“Hey, I like that sweater.” I dashed after it and then gave it a once over and agreed with her.

It was something my mom had bought for me and it had Betty Homemaker written all over it

with pearl buttons and a jacquard trim. I shoved it in the return-home bag. “I think coming back

to the dorm will be good for both of us. When Raven’s having a bad day, I can just come back

here so he can have some time to himself. Time to process whatever he’s going through.”

And time to fight his demons.

“And you trust that he will be okay.” She threw one of my skirts over her head. “He won’t

plunge off the edge and go back to where he was, will he?”

“I’ll check on him. It’s not like I won’t see him. And if needed, you can take me to his

apartment, right?”

“Yeah, of course.”

“Who’s apartment?” Raven stood in the doorway carrying my bags.

“Your apartment, silly.” I smiled at him, trying to displace any unnecessary fear or

jealously. Although Raven hadn’t seemed liked the jealous type, I wanted to keep it that way.

That was one less thing I didn’t have to worry about in our relationship.

“Hey, what’s this?” Delaney held up a pink and silver Victoria Secret’s gift card.

“Where did you get that?” I said taking it from her hand.

“It was buried in your clothes.” She pointed to the mound on my bed.

Raven looked over my shoulder as I opened the flap.

Have fun shopping with Raven. Love, Dad.

“Holy shit. Is he serious?” I looked at Raven and he smiled. Was my dad trying to make up

for my mom going bat shit crazy and burning all the lingerie Raven had bought me?

Sweet.

“Damn!” Raven covered his mouth with his fist. “Three hundred bucks. We can buy you a

lot of sexy stuff.” Raven cocked a brow. “When are we going?”

“Whenever you want.”  I eyed him with a hungry stare. No matter how hard I tried, I

couldn’t seem to get enough of him.

Of his taste.

Of his touch.

Of his scent.

I was permanently caught in The Raven’s trap. And I wondered if he was really done with

setting out his bait and happy with the catch he’d caught. Time would only tell. I shook my head,

trying to calm my ranging hormones.

 “Is that it?” I asked, looking at the two bags by the door.

“What do you mean, is that it?”  He huffed, gripping his waist. “I brought up like five bags.

And there’s still more at my apartment.”

 “I’m sorry.” I walked past him and headed for the closet. “I didn’t ask my dad to bring me

all of my clothes.”

“I know.” He grabbed my hand and spun me around. I slammed against his body and rested

my hands against his broad chest. “If you’d just stay with me, then we wouldn’t have to be

hauling all of your stuff back and forth.”

His scent laced around me, making it difficult to stand my ground. “But I am going to stay

with you.”

“Yeah, but not every night.” He pressed his lips to the sensitive part of my neck and my

mind quickly forgot why I had talked myself in to coming back to the dorm. “I need a little bit of

this every night.” He popped me on the butt and I squealed.

“Okay, I’m outta here.” Delaney dropped the clothes in her hand.

“No. I need your advice.” I tried to wiggle out of Raven’s arms, but he only held me tighter.

“I need you to help me pick out clothes that will make me look sexy.” I glanced up at Raven and

he let out a low growl as he continued to nibble on my neck, not paying any attention to Delaney.

I leaned to the side, trying to break free, even though I really didn’t want to. “Raven, stop.” I

pleaded with a tone that said yes, more than it said no.

“Looks like you’re about to get undressed so I’ll help you later.” Delaney step aside and

headed for the door.

“Thanks, Delaney.” Raven said as he kicked off his shoes and started to pull off his shirt.

His stomach tensed and I caught a nice view of his elegantly chiseled abs.

“Shit, I almost forgot.” Delaney turned around before pulling the door shut. “Whoa! Can

you wait until I get out? I don’t need a glimpse of the freak show.”

“Hurry.” Raven tossed his shirt on the chair. “I don’t have all day.”

Delaney’s eyes landed directly on Raven’s midsection for a full count of three before she

finally tore them away and looked at me. “Do y’all want to grab a pizza with Luke and me

later?”

Raven looked at me, waiting for a response. “I’m game if you are,” I said, feeling the hunger

pains bubble up in my stomach.

His lips spread into a full smile. “Sure, but I’m game for something else first.” Raven

encircled his arms around me and pressed his lips against my ear as his hands wondered up and

down my backside.

“What time Delaney?” I grabbed his arms, trying to restrain him from feeling me up in front

of my roommate. He stretched his neck, trying to kiss me. I laughed, unable to resist his tempting

offer. After all, I was already in his trap and I was there to stay.

“Is an hour long enough?” Delaney appraised Raven from head to toe and then gave me a

wide-eyed warning.

“No, but we’ll make it work.” He said, undressing me with his eyes.

I giggled as Raven picked me up and tossed me on the bed, landing on top of my clothes.

“I warned you, Lexi,” Delaney said, as she pulled the door shut.

“I know. But I can’t resist The Raven’s trap.”
