Release Blitz with Excerpt + Teasers: Demon Fire by Marie Johnston @mjohnstonwriter @GiveMeBooksBlog


Demon Fire by Marie Johnston
Series: Angel Fire #3
Publication date: April 12th, 2021

Synopsis:
She betrayed her kind and was exiled from her realm. When Sierra is dumped in a snowy forest before an impending blizzard, that should be the end of the newly fallen angel.

Boone wanted isolation. He wanted peace. He wanted to be left the hell alone. But a last-minute trip before he's stormed in for days turns up more than spare wood and a rabbit in his snares. He finds an unconscious and bloody human.

Sierra's realm might have erased her existence, but that doesn't mean she's been forgotten by those who want to use her for their own means. Demons have found her, and sticking around puts Boone at risk, the one man who makes her think she might deserve more than shame.

Boone's not going to let his fallen angel go. But going on the run with Sierra means discovering a terrifying new world, one with monsters that aren't much different than the ones that killed his family. He'd barely survived then. Would this time end up killing them both?

Excerpt
"Sierra. My name is Sierra." Would he want her last name? He wouldn't find any information on her if he searched.

But all he said was "Your memory's intact then. How'd you get out here?"

"Where is here?"

He swore softly.

"I didn't lose my memory," she clarified, her voice getting stronger. The part of her that enjoyed some conversation, no matter the subject, was embarrassing. This was her punishment. She wasn't on Earth to make friends. "I just don't know where I am."

"How could you not know?" His tone remained even. They could be talking about how the sun rose and set every day.

Chewing over what she was going to say, she squeezed her eyes shut. She didn't sense malice. If he'd rescued her, he should get some answers. Starting her new life on a pile of lies wasn't ideal, but it wasn't like she'd thought about what was going to happen once she was dumped on Earth. She'd done everything not to think about it. It'd been her problem.

It wasn't just her right now. It was Boone. "I don't recall the attack or how I got here, wherever here is."

Guilt churned in her stomach until nausea threatened to make her gag. When was the last time she'd eaten? She'd been fed regularly in her cell, awaiting her punishment, but the stress had made it hard to eat.

"That attack," he murmured as if testing her lie for himself. Perhaps he wasn't human if he doubted her story when she was in a mutilated heap. "But you know you were attacked."

"Wasn't I?" She wanted to tell him she'd been punished and he could take her back to wherever he'd found her. I betrayed my realm, got angels hurt, and got kicked out. Leave me alone. Please. But the words stuck in her throat.

"Who are you and where are you from?"

Why did lying feel like a long, treacherous trip down a road that had no turnoffs?

Release Blitz with Teasers: Cocky Cruisers by Nikki Sparxx @Nikki_Sparxx @GiveMeBooksBlog @CockyClub


Cocky Cruiser by Nikki Sparxx
Series: A Cocky Hero Club Novel
Publication date: April 11th, 2021

Synopsis:
Adele

I never expected to meet a handsome stranger on a family vacation with my brother, Chance and his wife and son. And I sure as hell didn't expect to hop on a nineteen day cruise with said handsome stranger across the Pacific.

Hey, you only live once, right?

I didn't have the best track record. I'd made some bad decisions in my life and hurt people in the process. For some reason, this trip felt like a new beginning for me; a fresh start to finally get my life back on track.

I just didn't plan to fall in love in the process.

Cohen

I wasn't sure what made me invite the beautiful bombshell on the cruise with me; maybe I just didn't want to be alone and be reminded of what I'd lost the entire time.

I didn't expect anything in return from her. I didn't want to complicate things. But somehow one thing led to another and I kept telling myself that she was just a fling. I didn't do love or relationships and I wanted to keep it that way. Once the cruise was over, we'd go our separate ways and would have some unforgettable memories to last a lifetime.

At least that's what my plan was. But sometimes, life doesn't always go according to plan.

Author's note - Cocky Cruiser is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Cocky Cruiser is a strangers to lovers romance inspired by Cocky Bastard.

Excerpt from "The Girl in the Storm"
"It is time we had a talk." Michael walked forward and sat in the deep red chair Joseph had occupied and watched as his brother took a seat as well.

"Is it too late for that now?"

"Maybe." Michael spoke, but neither of them knew whether it truly was or not. They were always inclined to believe that too much had been done to ever hope this gamble might change the course of what was yet to come. "But I would feel remiss if I didn't try."

"Would you believe me if I said that I had missed you?" Lucifer was a liar. Everyone knew that much about him, even if they didn't believe he existed. But this... this was perhaps the first time in centuries he had told the truth without compunction.

"I would."

Lucifer smiled then, a handsome smile that hinted at another side of him, lesser known and rarely understood. It might shock some people to think that Lucifer Morningstar had not always been the way he was now.
