Fallen Angel, Part 5 By Tracie Podger






figli devono pagare per le colpe dei padri

(Children must pay for the sins of the fathers)

Robert Stone has an identity. After discovering his father, a far greater dynasty was forged

But with this dynasty comes new enemies.

From the olive groves of Italy to the boardrooms in Washington, D.C., Robert is to command a business like no other.

Not all wars are fought on a battlefield, most are won in the corporate arena.

Not all wars are bloody – unless you threaten Robert’s family, of course.

Told from Robert Stone and Rocco Sartorri’s point of view, Fallen Angel, Part 5 picks up from the end of Part 4 and explores a unique relationship.

Two powerful men, both with secrets and enemies, come together in this explosive story of revenge, lost love, and hate that spans thirty years.

A Mafia romantic suspense for readers over the age of 18

Fallen Angel, Part 5 – Excerpt
By
Tracie Podger

Rocco - Chapter 1

My eyes opened and it took me a minute to realize where I was. I was lying on my back in the clothes I’d worn the day before, looking up at an ornate ceiling. A ceiling with plaster cherubs and painted saints, and I wondered how they felt, looking down on a sinner.
I had a plan; well, I knew the outcome to my plan. A man, a very powerful man would die by my hands. I would make that death as brutal, as painful, and as gut-wrenching as I could.
That man had ruined my life and I intended to do the same to him.
****
A knock on the door roused me from my thoughts, I didn’t move. I had no desire to see or speak to anyone, and if they were coming for me, then let them fucking wait.
Another knock; louder that time, and more persistent, had me sighing and rolling from the bed. I didn't bother to look through the spy hole, no one of consequence knew where I was, just him and his henchmen. I opened the door, then immediately turned my back and walked away.
“Breakfast,” I heard. I pointed to a small table in front of a sofa.
“And a clean shirt. Don't want to meet the Boss looking the way you are now, do you?”
I turned slowly to see the prick who had held a gun to my head. He sneered. I made a mental note, that smirk would be wiped from his face, preferably with a large kitchen knife. I ignored him and sat on the sofa. He let the shirt fall to the floor. I poured a cup of coffee, inhaling its rich aroma before I took a sip.
I lifted the silver dome that covered the plate to see deviled eggs on a toasted bun – how very European! Henchman left, slamming the bedroom door behind him.
As I sipped my coffee, I took a look around the plush room I had been imprisoned in. It had been dark when I’d been brought to a hotel, I didn't know its name or the location. Wherever I was, it was clearly expensive. Heavy brocade curtains hung from floor-to-ceiling windows on one side of the room. I stood and walked over. It wasn’t windows I found myself in front of, but French doors. I opened one and stepped onto a small balcony. I instantly knew then where I was.

RELEASE BOOST - Simmer by Stephanie Rose




Title: Simmer
Author: Stephanie Rose
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 16, 2018



Blurb

Simmer (verb): to stew gently below or just at the boiling point; to be in a state of incipient development


My life was always at a simmer… only stewing, never going anywhere. I was left to fend for myself when it came to affection or love, so I learned to go without. 

I refused to let them see how broken and lonely I was; it was much easier to hide behind a false reality. I didn't want anyone's pity. I didn't need it. Pity wouldn't put food on the table or keep a roof over our heads. That was all me.

Now, I have a second chance at a dream long forgotten. It demands hard work and sacrifice—with absolutely no distractions. A recipe I already know all too well, raising a daughter on my own. 

Drew Kostas is everything I’ve ever wanted but couldn't let myself have. He’s younger, gorgeous, charming—and relentless. He sees beyond the hardened shell I’ve built to protect myself, coaxing out a softer me I don't recognize. 

It doesn't matter how I melt in his presence when the heat between us threatens to boil over. 

That's the thing about heat. When it rises, everyone gets burned. 

Especially when they're foolish enough to fall in love.

RELEASE BLITZ - A.C.H.E. by M. Never




Title: A.C.H.E.
Author: M. Never 
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Ménage
Release Date: May 21, 2018



Blurb

A.C.H.E.

A is for Ache 
C is for Choice. 
H is for His. 
E is for Everly. 

I've always gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to my personal life. Drug-addicted mother, obsessive stepfather, shitty upbringing, and one soul-shattering, heart-wrenching relationship. 

But everything changed when I met Alec Prescott. I couldn’t stand the cocky, hotshot lawyer at first, but after assisting him on one case, my opinion changed drastically. He became the beginning I so desperately needed, even if romantic relationships at work are completely forbidden. 

Unfortunately, falling in love with a coworker is the least of my problems. Funny thing about the past, it’s never truly far away. No matter how fast you run from it, or how hard you try to suppress it, it’s there, lingering like a fog, blinding your vision, impacting your decisions, affecting your life. 

That’s where Tage Andrews comes in. He’s the heartache I can never outrun. The man who saved me from my past while pillaging my emotions. I want to avoid reliving it—avoid him—but he’s always there, lingering like a fog, blinding my vision, impacting my decisions, affecting my life. 


This is my paradoxical predicament. 
Two men. 
One choice. 
Inevitable heartbreak.

RELEASE BLITZ - Pr*ck Charming by Madison Faye




Title: Pr*ck Charming
Series: Royally Screwed #4
Author: Madison Faye
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 21, 2018



Blurb

He’s the most notorious bad boy in royalty.
The kind of man your mother warns you about.
He’s not the man you get drunk with, or get tattoos with.
He’s not the man you wake up naked in a hotel bed next to.
Oh, and he’s definitely not the one you accidentally marry.
Oops...


Rough, wild, uncivilized and filthy. The tabloids like to write all sorts of shit about me, but some of it’s pretty spot on. Like the tattoo I’ve got you-know-where?

Yeah, that one’s true.

I wasn’t looking for trouble that night, but I sure found it in her – Princess Faith LaFleur. If I’m the notorious bad boy, she’s just as infamous for being good, sweet, innocent, and untouched.

I saved her from a tight spot, but it all gets fuzzy from there. Fuzzy, close, kissing, tattooed, a couple of “I-do’s”, and a whole bunch of naked from there. And the next thing I know, I’m waking up next to the last girl on earth I should have anything to do with.

Because that sweetness comes with a whole big helping of sass, and there’s more fire in her than I ever saw coming. Oh, and throw in the fact that her father’s behind a plot to take my crown and steal my kingdom, and we’ve got ourselves what you might call a situation.

The world will tell me that this is wrong, and that I should walk away.

…Not a chance.

First, I made her my wife. But now, I’m going to make her mine.

RELEASE BLITZ - Impossible Bachelor by Ruth Cardello




Title: Impossible Bachelor
Series: Bachelor Tower #2
Author: Ruth Cardello
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 17, 2018



Blurb

Ben
I like a challenge. Tell me something’s impossible and I’ll make it happen. From our very first meeting it’s obvious the Bachelor Tower’s newest female addition doesn’t think I’m her type. When I’m asked to distract her from the politics of the building, she tells me I have no chance with her.

Proving her wrong will be fun and might just take us to the brink of love.

I ask her to trust me, but I’m not prepared for what she shares when she does.

Kylie
My life was following a set plan before he comes into it and turns everything upside down. Sure, he’s sexy as hell with a smile that can melt any heart—but I can’t afford to make another mistake. In my experience, the only people who can hurt me are the ones I let in.

He says he’s different, that he understands me.

He says that until I show him who I really am.

Then love is. . .impossible?

Author Bio


Ruth Cardello hit the NYTs and USA Today for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.

What Kindle Reviewers write about her:

"Wow hot at every page. Heart stoping, fear raging, mind blowing wonderful."

"I'm a true fan of Ms. Cardello. I ran on to her first book a few years back and have been hooked ever since. I could go on and on about the story line of this book, but I'm not. All of her books are total page turners, unique, heart wrenching, and I love them all. There isn't two alike in the bunch and I feel like I know the characters personally. I personally read 97 authors books. And I buy every book they put out. This author is in my top 10. Great job and keep them coming."

"Love this series. Got me to start reading again. I look forward to the next book. Thank you for giving me the love of reading back."

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.

She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.
