"You should put me down," she told him, even as she cuddled into his chest. "I'm too heavy. You don't want to strain your back."

In the distance the rattle, rattle, rattle of steel wheels over cement announced the arrival of the emergency room crew.

His arms tightened, and he forced a little chuckle. "The day my back gives out because of carrying a pretty woman is the day I'll give up my badge and retire."

"Pretty?" Her laugh was breathless and pained, but still wry. "Oh yeah, blood and bullet holes are so attractive."

No, but petite, black-haired women with big, brown eyes, sure as hell were.

The rattle of the gurney came closer. "Hang in there, baby. They'll have you fixed up in no time."

"Did you just call me, baby?"

Suddenly she grimaced, apparently misreading the shock on his face at the inadvertent slip.

"Sorry. I must be hallucinating." She offered him a wobbly smile. "I hear blood loss can do that to a person."

Book Blitz with Excerpt + Teasers + Giveaway: Oath Forger 1 by Nia Mars @niamars_author @XpressoTours

Oath Forger 1 by Nia Mars
Series: Oath Forger #1
Publication date: February 27th, 2018

Synopsis (according to Goodreads):
I'm a scavenger. So what? With society's collapse on Earth, I do what I have to for survival. Especially after I'm kidnapped by space pirates. I have no idea why the five most powerful rulers in the universe decide that I'm the Oath Forger, the one foretold to fuse their royal houses together and bring peace. But I'm going to play along. Because, hey, it's better than probes in uncomfortable places. Now let's just hope they don't find out I'm lying.

I'm learning to read!

When I look at him, his smile is one of encouragement, but the hunger in his gaze says he'd rather be doing other things with me in bed. I snap my gaze back to the screen.

"Moah," he says.


He sighs and puts an index finger on each corner of my mouth to tug it wider. "Moah."

His fingers are on my lips, and he's incredibly close. I think my heart stops beating. "Meh."

He laughs, and I laugh with him. He's shown not one flicker of impatience. His entire demeanor says he wants nothing more in this world than to help me learn his alphabet. I want him to kiss me so much it hurts.

Bad idea. Can't happen. It simply can't happen.

"Moah," I say. "Does it have meaning beyond the name of the letter?"

"It means mine in the old language. It's a word of claiming."

Then his lips are on my lips. And then his arms are around me, and I'm somehow straddling him the next second as he's kissing me, the lesson forgotten.

So this is kissing.

I have never been kissed like this before. I've only had a man's tongue in my mouth. But this is not a let's-see-what-it-feels-like kind of deal. Kissing Koah is mutual annihilation. My body is burning up from heat and need.

He is not taking this slowly. He is not taking his time. He is not giving me a chance to get used to the idea that he's somehow the master of my body.

His large hands cover my hips and he's holding me in place, pressing against his iron rod between my legs. He only stops the ravaging of my lips to say, "Moah," in a ragged voice, then he is back to kissing me once again.

An elemental connection pounds to life between us, and I forget everything else. I forget where I am. I forget Earth.

His hands slide down to cup my butt cheeks and he drags me along his thick shaft.

Oh. Ah.

I want this. I want him. I want to give in.

Sweetened Suffering by Charity B.
Series: Sweet Treats #2
Publication date: April 22nd, 2018

The problem with getting what you've always wanted, is the chance of losing it. Before I met Alexander, I was blissfully blind, unaware of what was possible. Now that I've seen the colors of his world, I don't know how to go back to the dreariness of mine. As much as I want to allow myself to dream of a life that I never knew was possible, the doubts still dig their claws into my mind and I fear the darkness of my past will destroy it all.

Not my wildest dreams or darkest nightmares could have prepared me for the intricacy that is Tavin Winters. As sweet and gentle as she is, the violence and torment that has been woven into every day of her past remains evident. He will pay for what he's done to her and I will do my best to give her the serenity she deserves. However this plays out, I will always love her and I will always protect her... even if it's from herself.

Trigger Warning: This novel contains drug use, explicit sexual conduct, violence, child abuse, and sensitive subject matter that may be triggered for some readers.
