Power. Passion. Betrayal.

Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition.

In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.

My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and will do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.

And neither will I.

Excerpt

“What do you want?”

The look he pours over me is hot oil, burning me even through serviceable layers of cotton. His heated perusal caresses my face, sluices over my breasts and hips, and then pools at my feet.

“Oh, that you won’t ever get again,” I say, my voice a soft, certain promise. “I don’t screw liars. I’m particular that way.”

“Never say never,” he drawls, tilting up my chin with his finger.

“Nev–”

He crushes the word between our mouths. It falls apart in the scorching, sweet tangle of lips and teeth. With one hand, he digs his fingers into my hair. The other splays across my lower back, his grip on me almost convulsive, urging me up and closer. I’m in stasis. I’m completely startled by the kiss, unable to respond. I send a desperate message to my brain.

Move. Pull back. Push him away.

But the urgent glide of his hand down my spine to cup my ass melts my thoughts to liquid and they swim in my head. I can’t pull back, and all hope of resistance dissolves when he presses his thumb to my chin, prying me open. He stalks my tongue, hunts down a response, licking and sucking and groaning and growling. His hands tighten on me until I strain up to seek him, yanking his hair, pulling him even closer.

“Dammit, Nix,” he mutters between kisses. His hand wanders down my neck and across my shoulder, and cups my breast, twisting the nipple through flimsy barriers of cotton and lace. He shoves up my skirt, pulling my legs wider, and pushes my panties aside, his fingers invading me. My body remembers this mad craving that claws out of my bones—that wants out. That wants him. Under his rough touch, my body blooms and my hips rock.

“That’s it,” he says, taking my earlobe between his lips.

My head falls back and I moan. It’s so damn good. His touch awakens me. His hands, his kisses bring me to life. It feels like I’m taking my first deep breath since we were last together, and it fills my lungs, seeps into my pores.

“I missed you,” he says, sucking my lips and kissing the corners, quick, hungry. “I’m sorry. Baby, I—”

“Stop talking.” I reach between us to loosen his belt, catching his zipper and dragging it down, dragging him out. “Shut up.”

“A dazzling, thought-provoking, layered romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat. A round of applause for one of the best books of 2019.”

— L.J. Shen, USA Today bestselling author

All The King’s Men Duet, an all-new powerful and emotional duet from RITA ® Award winning author Kennedy Ryan, is coming October 28th, and we have the first sneak peek!

KINGMAKER_FINAL.jpg

Power. Passion. Betrayal.

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition. In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.

My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and would do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.

And neither will I.

Sneak Peek from The Kingmaker

A fat raindrop plops on my nose, sliding down the bridge, followed by another and then a wet succession.

“Aw, hell.” I pull my jacket up on my elbows to provide some shelter for the two of us, but the rain trebles, more coming down and faster.

“We still have four blocks before my place,” I say. “Sorry, but the weather is unpredictable this time of year.”

Rain has already started molding the thin dress to her body, faithfully hugging every swell and curve. A hard shiver runs through her and her teeth chatter.

“Come on.” I grab her hand and duck into an alleyway. An overhang provides a tiny patch of dry ground and shelter. “We may be able to wait it out. These showers sprout up and pass over like they never happened.”

We’re sandwiched between two buildings and there is barely any light, but the moonlight finds her, sculpting shadows beneath her cheekbones and etching dark crescents of her lowered lashes. The rain has smeared her mascara, and water-slicked hair flattens to her head. She should look bedraggled, but she manages to be the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen.

I bend, tentative at first, even after last night. Even after making love to her again this morning when I chased her up the stairs. I approach slowly, giving her the chance to refuse, but she doesn’t. She meets me, eyes open, lips eager, hands bunched in my wet hair. It’s a freshwater kiss, made of rain and passion.

Book Review: White Knight by Meghan March

White Knight (Dirty Mafia Duet, #2)White Knight by Meghan March

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again I was blown away with Meghan March’s brilliant writing! I thought I knew where this book was going to go after finishing Black Sheep, but nope…in true M March fashion, she kept me on my toes and my jaw dropped! I couldn’t stop reading this book once I started…I was addicted, turning the pages faster and faster with each Chapter falling more in love with Cannon & Drew’s story.

The storytelling in this book is plain brilliant…the twists, turns and interwoven side characters all contribute to this 5-star read. I loved Cannon & Drew’s passion and connection in Black Sheep, but that was a warm up compared to White Knight. They continue to prove to one another and their families their love and loyalty to each other, and at the same time are determined to follow and accept the challenges and surprises that life handed them. They both had to dig deep to figure out their true roles and calling, and how they would go forward. But they never gave up on the other – they pushed, they fought, they loved, and they had each other’s backs. I loved every second of them together and couldn’t get enough of them.

I loved all of the secondary character cameos brilliantly divulged in this story, and know whose story is coming next. I can only hope we get more glimpses of Cannon & Drew in future books. Well done once again M March!!! I look forward to reading more about these characters and their world.

New Release: Truly Yours by Kennedy Fox

 

 

Truly Yours, the anticipated conclusion of Mason & Sophie’s story is HERE from Kennedy Fox! 

 

This is a friends-to-lovers roommate romance filled with drama, suspense, and, of course, plenty of angsty slow burn goodness you’ve come to expect in a Kennedy Fox book!

 

 

 

 

 

 I knew within moments of meeting Mason Holt that he would change my life forever. I just didn’t realize how much.

As my world spirals out of control, he continues to stay by my side, protecting and taking care of me. Being just friends is all he’s been able to offer, that is until both of our lives are threatened. Now that our relationship is blossoming into something more, I can’t be what he needs even if I wished I could. 

Bad timing strikes again. 

When I think we can finally be together, someone threatens to tear us apart. I’m not the same girl Mason met three years ago, but I’m determined to fight for what I’ve always wanted–him.

Read Truly Mine Here to Catch Up!

 

 

 

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a

brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed

skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized.

As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and

taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a

desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest

sin, but I was no saint.

Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting

her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.

Friends

It’s all we can ever be.

After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I

want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to

protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away

and makes it clear she doesn’t need me.

I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the

good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend

and I start throwing punches.

And ends when I’m arrested for his murder

Review: Black Sheep by Meghan March

Black Sheep (Dirty Mafia Duet, #1)

Black Sheep by Meghan March

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I know that whenever I pick up a Meghan March book that I am in for an adventurous and sexy ride, and Black Sheep was no different. I absolutely devoured this first book in the Dirty Mafia Duet. It is fast-paced, angsty, suspenseful, and you will fall for both the hero and the heroine.

“Cannon Freeman is a god among men.” I loved this initial reaction from Drew when she first met Cannon face to face. Although she is supposed to be investigating him and his associates, including his father, she is immediately swept off of her feet with one look at him. From their initial meeting, their chemistry was on point – he was witty and sharp, and she was sassy and confident. I absolutely loved these two together!

As their story unravels, you will learn more and more about each of their pasts and how they have come to the point where they are today – both seem to be misled by the other, but their hidden truths do not stop them from surprisingly falling for the other. I loved how naturally their relationship developed – it felt real and authentic, and I swooned so hard over Cannon!!

This book will leave you wanting more of these characters…more of their story and their passion. It does end with a cliffhanger that will have you begging for more! Well done once again M March!

About Black Sheep:

IMG_4324

Every family has a black sheep.

In the infamous Casso crime family, that black sheep is me—Cannon Freeman.

Except I’m not a free man. I’ve never been free. Not since the day I was born.

I owe my loyalty to my father, Dominic Casso, even if he won’t publicly acknowledge me as his blood.

I’ve never had a reason to go against his wishes… until I met her.

Drew Carson turned my world upside when she walked into my club looking for a job.

Now, my honor and my life are on the line.

Going against my father’s wishes might buy me a bullet straight from his gun, but black sheep or not, it’s time to make my stand.

She’s worth the fallout.

About White Knight:

I never expected to be anyone’s white knight. That’s not a role I’ve ever played.

But when the Casso crime family shifts into uncharted territory, they’re looking for a new hero, and they’re looking for me—Cannon Freeman, the black sheep.

But my time in disgrace is at an end.

It’s my turn to rise up and save the people who matter most to me.

Even if my family has never given a damn about me, I will not let them fall.

More than anything, I will not let her fall.

New Release: Violent Ends by Jessica Hawkins

 

Title: Violent Ends

Series: White Monarch #2

Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 18, 2019

 

Blurb

I had a life, love, and future to give.

Until my enemy took a wife.

 

The devil has a name, and it’s Cristiano de la Rosa. On my wedding day, he was
the last man I expected to see standing at the altar. He wants to make me his
queen. His brother wants to rescue his princess.

Getting Cristiano to lose control becomes the name of the game, and the stakes
are life and death. But as truth and lies blur, loyalty is tested, and our
chemistry threatens to reach the melting point, the prize grows less clear.
Either freedom no longer means what I think it does, or Cristiano is as devious
as everyone says, and he’s mastered the art of playing my mind.

All I know for certain is that nothing is certain. And all you need to know?
This is a love story.

But even love stories have to end.
