 Title: Unforeseen Riot 
Author: Karen Renee 
Series: A Riot MC Novel #1
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense

    Mallory Pierce, a thirty-one-year-old widow, has been hiding from life after losing her husband and son to a drunk driving accident a year and a half ago. Friends tried to get Mallory to get back into the swing of things; but it isn’t until she meets Riot MC biker, Cal Robertson, when Mallory begins to live again.  The chemistry between Mallory and Cal is volatile from the beginning, and when Cal offers her a ride on his motorcycle, Mallory cannot refuse.  Soon after meeting Cal, Mallory’s home is burglarized.  Police attribute it to teenage gang activity, but Cal Robertson finds out about the home invasion and insists on helping Mallory put the pieces back together.  Mallory agrees to a date with Cal, which goes awry when Cal must take Mallory to his club’s compound so he can fulfill his duty as the club’s Sergeant at Arms.  Even though Mallory is physically attracted to Cal, she knows she doesn’t fit in with his biker lifestyle. 
            Mallory’s relationship with Cal has a rough start, but the two of them cannot stay away from one another.  After an attempt by a rival MC to abduct Mallory she finds herself all but living with Cal.  There are many things she doesn’t understand about his lifestyle and his world, but she understands she’s quickly developing feelings for this over-protective alpha male.
            Cal “Callous” Robertson has been a patched member of the Riot MC for the past nineteen years, and the Sergeant-at-Arms for the last eight.  He’s fascinated by the spunky brunette, Mallory Pierce, who is one of the only women to push his buttons.  He doesn’t believe the police explanation of teenagers being behind the burglary, mainly because after eleven years in the foster care system he knows about being a troubled teen.  He thinks Mallory’s mother-in-law is behind the break-in, but at such an early point in their relationship Cal keeps that to himself.  When a member of a rival MC shows interest in Mallory, Cal can no longer deny his attraction to her.  Cal is determined to protect Mallory, and get to know her better along the way.  The more he finds out, the more he wants her in his life. Permanently.  When Mallory is abducted from Bike Week right under Cal’s nose, he finds he cannot live without this spitfire woman in his life, and he’ll do whatever he has to in order to get her back.

Karen Renee has wanted to be a writer since she was eight years old, but it’s taken the last twenty years for her to amass enough courage and overall life experience to bring that dream to life. Some of those life experiences came from the wonderful world of advertising, banking, and local television media research. She is a proud wife and mother, and a Jacksonville native. When she’s not at the soccer field or cooking, you can find her at her local library, the grocery store, in her car jamming out to some tunes, or hibernating while she writes and/or reads books.

Do. Not. Touch.
Alice Ryder came with more warning signs than a museum exhibit.
Under twenty-one. Best friend’s baby sister. Heart-broken.
I was only supposed to keep an eye on her and keep my hands to myself.
But her sunshine sucked me in.
Why did she have to want me? Why did she have to want me to save her?
I wasn’t her savior. I wasn’t the prince in her fairytale.
I was only the asshole in shining armor. 
For some, heartbreak becomes a habit.
Losing so much had taught me that it’s easier to just give up the things you care about before they are taken.
Because you can’t lose what you don’t have.
I gave up the warmth of the sun and sand hoping that the cold, snowy mountains of Colorado would be able to numb whatever feelings I had left and bury the pieces of my heart under the frost.
And then I met Emmett Jameson - the King of the Mountain and my brother’s best friend.
He was cold and controlling - treating me like the child that I wasn’t.
He was everything that promised to break what was left of me.
And I needed him for it.
My shattered heart would be safe wanting someone like him.
Then again, heartbreak was my bad habit.

Release Blitz: Inescapably Hellbound by Cassandra Lawson

Title: Inescapably Hellbound
Series: A Spells That Bind Novel #5
Author: Cassandra Lawson
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: April 30
You are familiar with the story of Hades and Persephone, right? Well, forget what you’ve heard. That is definitely not the way it happened. How do I know? I’m Persephone—one of them, anyway.

Let’s start from the beginning. Once, there was a fallen angel named Hades who claimed to be God of the Underworld. About two millennia ago, Aphrodite put a curse on him that can only be broken by finding the woman he’s destined to love—a woman named Persephone. I’m not the first Persephone Hades has come across, but I know I’m the one to end his curse. There’s only one thing standing in the way—Hades. He’s abducted countless women named Persephone, but I can’t even get him to kiss me!

All of that’s about to change. My plan to find my happily-ever-after with Hades is simple. I just need to seduce him, keep my mother from trying to kill him, and avoid being used by an ex-god of Olympus in a plot to take over the demon realm. What could go wrong?

“If I bring you so much joy, why do you avoid me?”
It was the wrong question. His features became guarded. At least, he didn’t lie and pretend he wasn’t avoiding me. He took a step back, like he was getting ready to leave, but I wasn’t having it. Taking a step forward, I grabbed two of his belt loops. He looked down at my fingers and then back up at me.
“What are you doing?” he asked.
“I deserve an answer,” I replied. “You’re already thinking about running, and I’m not about to let that happen. Now, answer me.”
“It’s safer,” was his quiet reply.
“We are going to have to spend time together,” I insisted.
“I don’t want to hurt you.” He stepped closer, and our gazes locked. One large hand moved to my cheek, and I leaned into it. His touch made me shudder with desire. “You have no idea how dangerous I am.”
“Yes,” I whispered, releasing his belt loops to slide my hands up to his shoulders. “I’m well aware of how dangerous you are. Please, stay.”
He wanted to. I could see the longing in his eyes as he continued to stare down at me. His gaze moved to my mouth, and he leaned in closer. My eyes drifted shut as his lips hovered just above mine. I couldn’t believe he was finally going to kiss me. At least, that’s what I thought until I felt him pull away.
“I can’t,” he told me. “You deserve more.”
On those words, Hades took flight.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” I grumbled as I stomped toward my apartment, so turned on I could feel my body pulsing with need. “If he doesn’t make a move soon, I may be the first Persephone to abduct Hades.”
