Title: The Only Exception: Broken
Author: A.L. Davis
Genre: Romance
Release Date: Dec 13, 2014




 “Everyone I’ve ever loved has been taken from me and I can’t take the heartache anymore. It’s time to build that wall around my heart and let no one in, no exceptions.”

Ellie never did know her mother; before she turned twenty she lost her father in the line of duty; a freak accident stole her fiancĂ© from her before they had a chance to start their life together. She wants answers, but now that she’s living in a new town and trying to start over, she’s finding that it’s not that easy. Maybe new surroundings are what she needs to make it easier to move on and forget all about her old life. It could have been…until he showed up.

“Having the sort of job that is as dangerous as what I do doesn’t allow for a personal life, no exceptions.”

Jack and his team of military misfits have seen their fair share of war zones and violent criminals. Skilled in precision rescue operations, they’ve traveled into some of the most terrifying countries and stood up to intimidating adversaries, but when a mentor of Jack’s calls them in for a favor that he is unable to turn down, he finds himself up against his most challenging fear of all…his heart. There is a fine line between getting close enough to do your job and getting so close that you get attached. That line used to be obvious, but now that he’s met her, things have blurred and priorities have shifted. Can he keep his feelings in check and still protect Ellie from an adversary more dangerous and twisted than she could ever imagine?







“And this…” I tossed the manila envelope back to the desk, “…is not a job. It’s a death sentence. My death sentence. I’m walking in blind. I mean, how do I know she’s not running from the law?”

Lou shook his head, his mouth contorting into a tight frown, and answered matter-of-factly, “She’s not. And why would that stop you?”

“How do I know for sure? How do you know for sure?” I challenged, making him smile.

Somehow, that irritated me even more. He was hiding something.

“Because I know,” he answered, lips pursed, eyes narrowing at me. He didn’t look away and neither did I. I wanted to know what he was thinking. What was he hiding? Unfortunately, he was going to make it difficult to find out.

I sighed, knowing that was the only answer I was going to get. “Is she hiding from her husband or boyfriend or something?”

“Most definitely not,” he answered with a heavy sigh, sadness flicking across his face.

This piqued my interest. And why was a small part of me so damn happy with that answer?

“Did she kill someone?” I figured I already knew the answer to this one, but I had to ask.

He chuckled. “Absolutely not.”

“What if she’s got the mob after her? Did she piss off a terrorist group?”

“So what if they are? So what if she did? You’ve been wrapped up in worse and handled it,” he answered quickly. “Stop with the stalling already, Jack. I need to know. Are. You. In.”

“Lou, I don’t help people against their will because if they won’t listen and do what I tell them to do, bad things happen. She doesn’t want me anywhere near her. She won’t even look at me, let alone talk to me. Ellie dodges me all day long. I tried to just talk to her like you asked me, but she avoids me like the plague and scurries off in the other direction. She looks at me like…like…”

“Like the frightened child she is,” Lou interrupted sighing.










A.L. Davis lives in Southern California with her husband, two kids, and one fur baby. A.L. has had a passion for writing since high school where any free time was spent thinking up new stories.

Blog Tour; That's A Lie


TITLE: That’s a Lie (Promises, Promises #2)

AUTHOR: Victoria Klahr

GENRE: Contemporary Adult, New Adult

RE-RELEASING: February 27, 2015


Seth is back.

When he walked back into my life, it almost felt like the pieces of my broken heart could be fixed. 
I thought we could go back to being best friends, but then I started to feel what I had been blocking out for years. 
I tried. Boy, did I try! 
But once I started to let him in, I wanted nothing more than to cross that line from friendship into something more…

Just when I think I can move on and let myself be happy, an ugly reminder from my past comes storming in and threatens to destroy the sliver of hope that's been growing since Seth came back.

Do I even deserve to be loved?

“I’m not asking to fix your heart. I’m not asking to mend you. I love each and every shattered piece of you. I’m asking that you let me love you. Let me love each piece of your broken heart, and I swear to you I will make up for every heartache you have ever experienced.”

I came back for Josie.

I knew I'd have to fight for her, but with the loss of her dad and the truth about what happened with her and Blake, I quickly realized that making her mine was going to be a lot harder than I first thought. 
The problem is, I can’t pretend like she’s just my best friend.
 I can’t pretend I don’t want more.

I'm willing to do anything to get her to admit she has the same passionate feelings for me, because I know once she opens up and stops lying to herself, I can show her what it really means to be loved.
 It's a battle of wills, but my love for her is stronger than her will to stop me.

So I fight for her. I fight because I know she deserves it.

 Excerpt from That's A Lie

I was instantly distracted as I walked into the space.
 Seth. Shirtless.
 I don't think I need to explain my lack of focus. 
Or the drool.

"You lied to me," he said gruffly, sitting on the barstool at my counter. 
His blond hair flopped in front of his eyes, and my hands itched to push it back. 
Touching him again the way I wanted to would satisfy only a millimeter of the need I have, but it would relieve some of the pain. 
I turned around to hide my thoughts.

"Ugh . . . I need coffee," I said vacantly, reaching for my coffee maker.
 I didn't even hear Seth move, but his hand grabbed mine and he turned me around, placing his hands beside me on the countertop to trap me.
 My breath caught, and I was positive he could hear my heart pounding in my chest.

His blue-green eyes screamed hurt and anger, but I didn't even care about him being mad. 
All that mattered was the charge that thumped between us. 
I was very aware of him.
 "You lied, Josie. You're not supposed to lie to me."

"Seth . . . Come on," I said, turning my face away, unable to look at the raw emotion in his expression. 
His hand dashed out and grabbed my chin.

"How long, Josie?" he asked. 
I closed my eyes, not wanting to admit anything.
 "Open your damn eyes, Jos. Stop fucking hiding." His voice was hard, but it was also full of desperation.

I opened my eyes and narrowed at him.
 He didn’t understand that I needed to keep him away from me. 
My life is tainted by darkness, and he doesn't need that. 
Yes, I lied to the one person who I said I wouldn't deceive again, but it was for his own good! 
"It doesn't matter, Seth. I'm fine."

"Like fucking hell it doesn't matter. I haven't heard you scream like that since your nightmares after you were raped!"

The haunting reminder brought back vivid memories of that time. 
He or one of my dads would come lay with me to help me fall asleep. 
Every day that Seth wasn't in school, he was there with me, trying to make the nightmares go away. 
"Since the engagement party," I whispered, looking down.

I don't know why I admitted it,but I think part of me realized I couldn't hold on to all this pain anymore. That's when my resolve started to break.
 How long could I go on fighting the feelings that I have for Seth?
 How long could I act like nothing hurts me? 

"Fuck, Jos . . . ," he whispered back, placing his forehead against mine.
 His signature smell of hay and apple pie drifted around me, and I almost lost my footing from wanting him so bad. "You should have told me."

"I didn't want you to worry." 

"I worry about you every second you're not with me, Pussycat. Every second that you hide behind that wall you've built, I wonder when you're going to crack."
 His hand reached up to caress my face, and I leaned into his touch. 
It was only an infinitesimal movement, but I still heard Seth's breath hitch. 
My lapse in self-control made him bold. 
He brought his mouth to the side of mine, and kissed me. 

I couldn't stop the whimper before it escaped my mouth. 

"There you are," he whispered hoarsely against my lips, always seeing me, even when I didn’t want him to.
 I wanted to bask in the moment, but I had already opened up to him too much. 

I pushed through his barricade and ran back to my room. 

"I've got to help Dad at the garage today," I threw out as an explanation, and then I went to hide in my shower.

~*~ABOUT TARA CRESCENT~*~

Hello, I’m Tara Crescent. I’ve always fantasized about being a mysterious spy, leading a secret double-life, and now, I find that that’s come true!

Sort of.

By day, I’m a mild-mannered corporate drone in Toronto, but by night, I’m limited only by my imagination; I sit, and I type, and I am a daring writer of BDSM, erotica and romance.

In my spare time, I write of course. I also read, garden, travel, cook, and almost never clean. I just started watching Walking Dead on Netflix (zombie erotica, anyone?), and I’m impatiently awaiting the next episode of Doctor Who. (I would kill for a TARDIS.)

I’ve scribbled bits and pieces all my life, chiefly inspired by what I’m reading, which tends to be mainly science-fiction and fantasy, with a healthy sprinkling of romance and erotica thrown in.

I’m a huge believer in happily-ever-after, but tempered by real life, where happily-ever-after is possible, but takes work. My favorite kind of romance stories are ones that are somewhat believable; I like strong men and women who know what they want out of life, and are driven to get it.

I love reader email; I can be reached at taracrescent@gmail.com.

Happy reading and writing!

Excerpt 
  
“Well, here’s a fun photo,” Tyler interrupts with a smirk on his face, holding a stack of photos out for all of us to see. “Jennifer, you were a lovely drunken bride. Which one of you was the lucky groom?”

Jennifer’s face goes white.

“What?!” Jennifer screeches as she grabs the photos out of Tyler's hand. Looking at the first one, she says, “Oh! Look at me with Elvis! Ohmigawd that photo is priceless! But I was probably just dressing up like the pirate thing. No way we got married.”

Knox holds out a manila envelope. As he dumps the contents of it, I notice little beads of sweat have formed on his forehead. Knox rarely sweats.

Two shiny silver wedding bands clang onto the table. “Oh fuck!” Jennifer groans. “Knox? What the fuck? Did we get married? I was joking when I said let’s get married in Vegas. Oh my god.” She flips to the next photo. “Look at me in this one. I’m in a veil. I have that silver ring on my finger and the other in my hand! I’m giving Elvis a thumbs-up! And, ohmigawd, look at this one. Knox, we’re at the altar, kissing!”


Excerpt
 
On our one-year anniversary, he filled my dorm room with an assortment of pink flowers.
 The peonies were my favorite and Riley said they would forever be our flower. 
Part of me can’t believe he still remembers ten years later. 
But our love left such an imprint on our souls that neither of us could ever forget.

We had a pact.
