Cover Reveal: Beneath this Mask by Meghan March

We are excited to share with you the cover for Meghan March's newest book BENEATH THIS MASK, scheduled for release on September 29th!

Make sure to add it to your TBR list and enter the giveaway below! Good luck!!!


beneath this mask



My name is Charlotte Agoston, and I’m a runner. Not the ‘let’s go for a jog and slap a 26.2 sticker on your bumper’ kind of runner; I’m the kind of runner who takes off when her father is staring down the barrel of a guilty verdict that carries a 175-year sentence for perpetrating the largest fraud in the history of the world. That’s right. Bernie Madoff was an amateur compared to Alistair Agoston.

Faced with living under a cloud of suspicion and constant questioning by the FBI, I ran. I’m making a new life in New Orleans as Charlie Stone. I traded my future in New York high finance for tattoos, booze, a few friends who don’t ask questions, and one giant mutt named Huckleberry Finn. Everything is simple and uncomplicated until Simon Duchesne—former hotshot Navy fighter pilot, NOLA’s favorite son, city councilman, and rumored congressional hopeful—walks into my life.

The flashing cameras he attracts threaten to expose everything I’m hiding, but I can’t seem to stay away. Why are the most dangerous ideas always the most seductive?

In trying to get lost, I found myself. And then I found Simon. He loves me, and he doesn’t even know my real name. I’m going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it. This is our story.

Will we be strong enough to face the consequences of revealing what’s beneath this mask?




“What are you doing here?” I asked. My tone was less than welcoming. If he let me run him off, then I’d be saved from the temptation that was Simon Duchesne. “You called me.” “I shouldn’t have.” “I’m glad you did.” He shifted, as though annoyed by the bars between us. Sorry, Simon, I thought, even without the bars, there will always be impenetrable walls. A thought struck me. “Are you drunk?” “No,” Simon replied with a laugh. “Are you?” “A little.” At least I could be honest about that. A provocative smile spread over his face, and I caught a flash of dimples. Damn. Come on world, throw me a bone. “Are you going to ask me in?” He punctuated the question with a raised eyebrow. “I shouldn’t.” To myself I added, I really, really shouldn’t. “You don’t look like the kind of girl who doesn’t do things just because she thinks she shouldn’t.” I looked down at the uneven cobblestones beneath my feet. “Don’t pretend like you know me.” “I want to.” “Why?” It was a question I desperately wanted answered. I was still trying to sort out all of the reasons for my attraction to him. Maybe he could articulate whatever this crazy thing was between us, and solve the mystery for me. He reached through the bars and tucked a flyaway strand of hair behind my ear. “Honestly, I have no idea. You’re just … there’s something about you.” Dammit. I took a deep breath and exhaled slowly, giving myself a moment to think. Ultimately, it was his honesty that decided it. We were equally off balance here. I was probably going to regret this, but … what the hell. I twisted the lock and opened the gate. For some reason, it didn’t feel wrong. I thought of Yve’s advice. One night. Get him out of my system. I never had to see him again. I could steal this night and emerge unscathed.

Title: Professor Cline
Author: J.M. La Rocca
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: January 2015


Getting pleasure from pain makes me a sadist. I’ve been that way for as long as I can remember. Plagued by painful memories and a dark past, I use women to help me forget. I’ve done everything in my power to take control of my life, but there are some things I have no control over.

People think they know who I am, but in reality, they know nothing.

My name is Mason Cline.

But after today, you will call me Professor Cline.





I've had a passion for reading and writing for as long as I can remember. It has always been an escape for one reason or another. Now, I'm taking that passion and turning it into a book. My debut book Lifeless will be released late summer 2013. I can't wait for you to read this story that has been brewing in my head for over a year. :)

Release Day Blitz: Permanent Bliss (Bliss Series #3.5) by B.J. Harvey


I've been waiting forever for more Daniel ... and boy, was it worth the wait!!

Permanent Bliss is a companion novella in the Bliss series by B.J. Harvey and it is the fabulous conclusion to Mac and Daniel's story - be sure to grab yourself a copy!


Title: Permanent Bliss
Series: Bliss #3.5
Author: BJ Harvey
Release Date: August 25, 2014


Makenna Lewis never thought she would be the one walking down the aisle to marry her superhero. But then again, she hadn't expected Daniel Winters to crash into her life and tilt her world off its axis two years earlier. As they celebrate their last days of singledom, they find themselves battling over the guest list, managing the in-laws, and dealing with last minute disasters that threaten to disrupt their special day.

In true Bliss fashion, we’ll see freak-outs, awkward situations, hilarity, drama, and cringe-worthy moments as Mac and Daniel prepare for one of the most important days of their lives. Join the Bliss gang as they watch two of their own walk down the aisle and conclude their happily ever after.

This companion novella follows on from the end of True Bliss and will lead into Finding Bliss – Noah ‘Walking Dildo’ Taylor’s story.

**Disclaimer – Hot sex, drunken texts, horny phone calls, and a wedding anticipated by all but one. And, of course, a few freak outs along the way (but NOT the kind you’re used to) because that’s how Mac rolls **




I’m riveted and distracted as he walks around to the driver’s window and hands him the money to pay my fare before he walks back around and opens my door. Clutching my bag of dirty fun in one hand and my purse in the other, I look up at him in awe as he stands there with his hand out and a perceptive grin.

“C’mon, gorgeous. Time to come inside.”

“Thought that was your job,” I say, forgetting that I’m sitting inside the cab and within earshot of the driver.

Daniel laughs before grabbing my hand and helping me to my very shaky feet, causing me to reach out and grab his biceps. “Shit,” I mutter under my breath as I’m gently moved sideways so that he can shut the car door behind me.

With a double tap on the roof of the cab, he bends slightly before scooping me up into his arms, one wrapped around my shoulders and the other underneath my knees. “Whoa, Superman. Pulling out all the stops?” I lean forward so that my mouth is right by his ear. “You do know I’m a sure thing tonight, right?”




BLISS SERIES FACTS

  • The books are all standalones that can be read separately in their own right but feature common characters throughout the books. 
  • There are currently four books planned for the series but I have tentative ideas for one more novel and one novella. 
  • Out of the three females in the three books so far, there has been a brunette, a red head and a blonde – I wonder what Noah’s female of choice will have ;)
  • Each of those females have a favorite drink of choice; Mac likes tequila, Kate likes her win, Sam has a close relationship with Vodka (and couches)
  • Ben & Jerry’s ice cream features in every book (and I only tasted Ben & Jerrys’ for the first time in March this year!) Mac and Kate like Chunky Monkey, Sam likes Karamel Sutra. 
  • Temporary Bliss (Bliss#1) is the only book that features all of the main characters (Sam first appears in True Bliss (Bliss #2). 
  • All four planned books in the Bliss series will soon be published in portuguese in Brazilian book stores
  • Every book has songs as chapter titles
  • Permanent Bliss (Bliss #3.5) was written to give Mac and Daniel fans their happy ‘forever’ after for the couple that started it all. It also features all of the characters from the first three books and one scene you would never expect to happen ;)




The Bliss Series by B.J. Harvey is one of my absolute favourites. Daniel ‘Superman’ Winters and Makenna Lewis are one of the funniest, sexiest and most perfect couples you’ll meet. And by perfect I don’t mean all roses and sunshine I mean honest and real and ideally suited to each other.

Permanent Bliss is a companion novella to the Bliss Series and it’s where we get to see whether Mac and Daniel get the happily ever after I always thought they so richly deserved. Consistent with other books in the series there are some seriously H.O.T. sex scenes in Permanent Bliss, not to mention moments of absolute hilarity … in fact, more than once the two are combined.

We get to see all of our favourites from the series … Noah, Zander, Sean, Kate and one of my not so favourites … Nikki. The count down to the wedding is precisely what you’d expect from that high stress time, but it also offers fabulous insight to the depth of the relationship between Daniel and Mac. But the absolute BESTEST bit is the Epilogue … B.J. you better be frantically writing lady because I cannot wait for Noah’s story now!!

If you haven’t picked up this series yet you really are missing out … Temporary Bliss is where it all starts and “the smoking hot volcano of fine” that is Daniel Winters would have to be one of my all time favourite book boyfriends … of course I’m also not ashamed to say that I love Mac just as much and kind of have a bit of a girl crush on her … she’s this fabulous blend of awesomeness and yet still incredibly, humanly fallible. True Bliss (Kate and Zander) and Blissful Surrender (Sean and Samantha) are the other two books in the series and I’m confident in saying once you start, you won’t want to stop.

Permanent Bliss wraps up Daniel and Macs story perfectly, and opens the door for the final book in the Bliss Series, Finding Bliss.

#1 Temporary Bliss (on sale for 99c)

*Disclaimer - There is absolutely no cheating in this book. However, this book does contain descriptive and super hot sex scenes that will make you blush and leave you hot and bothered. Make sure you have you husband, partner, boyfriend or significant other nearby when reading, or else batteries. Lots and lots of batteries*

Makenna Lewis cringes at any mention of the word commitment. She doesn’t want or need a relationship, but she does like sex (who doesn't).

That explains Noah, Sean, and Zander, her three 'friends with benefits'.

They know the score, they know they're not the only one, and each of them provide her with a different physical need that she craves and enjoys.

Until a late night encounter with the delicious Daniel Winters turns her preconceived notion of no-commitment completely on its head.

Soon she finds herself feeling things she vowed never to feel again, and when Daniel pushes for more than she’s willing to give, she falters.

What do you do when something that you’ve known to be so wrong in the past feels so damn right?

If you’re Mac, you run and hide.

But is Daniel the type of man who takes no for an answer?


#2 True Bliss


She watched her best friend find her superhero.

Now she wants her turn.

Despite a run of bad dates with Mr. Wrong, Mr. Boring, Mr. Bad Breath, Mr. Grabby Hands, and even Mr. Say I Love You After One Date To Get Into Your Pants, Kate McGuinness is more determined than ever to find the one.

Having tried everything else, she turns to the internet in a last ditch attempt to find her elusive prince.

But Kate doesn't want an everyday, run of the mill love.

She wants the kind of love that makes your heart skip a beat. The kind of love that makes you dance in the rain and bottle up the sunset. The once in a lifetime kind of love that authors write about, musicians sing about, and lovers dream about.

Could a certain police officer in training, who has come to her rescue in the past, be the one to swoop in and save her heart?

What if the love Kate desperately seeks has been in front of her the whole time?
She just needs to open her eyes to see it...

*Disclaimer: This book contains a hot as hell stripper with a penchant for public sex and exhibitionism who may or may not succeed in bringing out the inner firecracker in all of us. Oh, and don't forget the batteries.*



#3 Blissful Surrender


This is a story of Sean Miller, a dom that will have your panties diving for cover with an eyebrow quirk. That will have even the strongest woman dropping to their knees in submission with a piercing stare, and Samantha Richards, a female cop who’s tough, seemingly impenetrable shell is strong enough to resist everyone except the one man it was build up to protect her against.

**Disclaimer – If you thought the first two Bliss books were hot, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Creative use of handcuffs, batons, a club scene you have to read to believe, and a tough as nails dominant who is blindsided when the one woman strong enough to disarm him threatens his resolve not to let his past dictate his future.**


COMING SOON (Winter 2014/15)
#4 Finding Bliss


They call me the walking dildo.
Gratifying? Yes.
Something to be proud of? Certainly.
What I wish to be known for? Absolutely not!
Watching my best friend and my old fuck buddy walk down the aisle blissfully happy has just reiterated the fact that I’m thirty and perpetually single.
I thought I’d found someone I wanted to spend my life with but sometimes you have to face facts and realize it’s never gonna happen.
Funny how it just takes one person to make you finally see sense.
My name is Dr Noah Taylor and this is the year my life changed for the better.
*Disclaimer – This book features hot sex, filthy language, misuse of on-call rooms and the overdue redemption of the fake orgasm*
