Missing (Kings of the East Book 4)

Bear has been living side by side with crime lords for so long, he wouldn’t recognize a normal life if he walked right into one. That’s why he doesn’t realize he already has one when he’s with Creed.

Since Bear’s baby brother went missing fourteen years ago, he’s stopped living. He’s been in the dirt, infiltrating every crime ring imaginable. Until the day he found him dead, nothing mattered but finding Gabe. Now, he only has one goal in life: destroying everyone who let it happen, including himself. He just never expected Creed.

Creed isn’t dumb. He knows when someone isn’t interested. When he met Bear at a local club, Bear’s incessant swinging between hot and cold should have driven Creed away. Creed doesn’t know what it is about Bear. There’s something in his eyes that has Creed constantly flinging himself against the brick wall Bear has built around himself. It’s possible Creed’s persistence will pay off someday and Bear will love him back… or maybe Bear’s nonstop lies and double life will get Creed killed.

Missing is the fourth book in Charity Parkerson’s Kings of the East series where underground crime runs the world. These books are best enjoyed when read in order.

Pre-Order: Pretender (Kings of the East Book 3) by @CharityParkerso

Pretender (Kings of the East Book 3)

Alessandro wouldn’t say meeting Ender was love at first sight. It was definitely love by second glance, though. Too bad Ender is a liar.

While Alessandro is currently serving his second mafia boss, he plans to stop here. Back when he had been a bodyguard for Xiv’s father, Vlad, Alessandro had hated everything about this life, but people don’t quit crime lords. They wait until their bosses are dead or kill them themselves. Xiv is a different kind of crime boss, though. He’s a good man. Alessandro will do anything to keep Xiv in power. But Alessandro never expected Ender.

Ender is only loyal to one entity above himself: the Kapra. While the west coast mafia has no intentions of taking over the east, Xiv has caused problems for Ender’s boss in the past. That’s the only reason Ender is staying in the same town as Alessandro and ending up in the same places. He needs to keep an eye on Alessandro’s employer. At least, that’s what Ender keeps telling himself. That doesn’t explain the longing in his gut or why he keeps making excuses to stay.

When a young assassin meets a seasoned killer, sparks fly. But it’s only a matter of time before everything explodes around them. It’s possible no one will be left standing at the end. Pretender is the third book in Charity Parkerson’s Kings of the East. These books are best when read in order.

Author Addison/Adara Wolf #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Addison/Adara Wolf

Tell us a bit about yourself…

Hi everybody! I’m Addison/Adara Wolf. My dark MF works are under the name Addison Wolf, my dark MM stuff under Adara Wolf. I primarily write, well, dark romance. Protagonists who are unredeemable and relationships that are extremely toxic. I wouldn’t want to date any of my main characters IRL, but they sure are fun to write and read about!

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I have been writing for fun since I was around 14, but if I’m honest, I didn’t consider it as a full time profession until I was in the middle of my first real job and absolutely hating it. I wrote Under His Heel (dark m/m) for fun, not really intending to monetize it, but it grew extremely long! And things had gotten very sour at work, so publishing this book allowed me to leave a toxic situation.

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Raissa Donovan (my now co-author) and I were chatting about branching out into a new genre. We knew we wanted to write dark, and reverse harem sounded very fun, especially since it allowed us to include some bisexual men in our story. We chatted out ideas, throwing in all the fun kinks we definitely wanted to add, until we got to Breaking Lucia.

What are you working on now?

We just finished Book 2 in the Spoils of Victory series, Taming Lucia, and we’re gearing up to start writing the third one. We have it planned out, but as always things will probably change while we’re writing. On the m/m side, I’m working on a spin-off for Under His Heel, Leashing His Heart, featuring a rich young man out of his depths and a criminal who is finding out just how hard he can push the boundaries.

Do you have any quirks while working?

Not so much quirks, but I can’t work with music playing, most of the time. The lyrics distract me! If I think it’s too quiet, I’ll pop on some instrumental music.
… Oh, and anybody who knows me can tell you, but I spend way too long researching tiny details that will often never make it into my books.

What are your hopes for the future?

I’d love to be able to make this my full time job. I’m not there yet, but I changed day jobs mid-2021 and my goal for 2022 is to grow my author business. If I can figure out how to juggle my day job with my author job, I want to get back into painting, as well. I did a few paintings for my home office and had so much fun with it.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

If you’re self-publishing, the most important thing is to have a plan! Plan out what you’re going to write for the next year, and stick to a schedule. Marketing is important too (don’t skimp on covers) but the best thing you can do is be consistent.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

Thank you so much to everybody who has supported me these past few years. I appreciate everybody who has read my books. I love reader comments and seeing people’s reactions to my characters really warms my heart. Thank you so, so much. 💖
As a thanks to all our readers, Raissa and I have written a little holiday extra story, titled Giving Lucia.

Teasers –Taming Lucia, releasing on Dec 28

The last dress I’m holding is black, knee-length, with a wrap design. It shows a bit of cleavage, but not as much as the white dress, and it still has thick straps and a covered back. Elegant, but still appropriate for work without being completely sexless.
“This one,” I say, pulling the dress off the hanger. “Raise your arms, Lucia.”
“I can dress myself,” she tells me, reaching out for the dress instead of obeying.
I unzip the back of the dress and shrug. “I’m sure you can. You can wear it by yourself too. I just finished clearing out one of the closets for you, we could hang you up there with the rest of the dresses.”
Angelo smirks.
All the color drains from her face. She quickly raises her arms in the air. “That won’t be necessary,” she says.
I pull the dress over her head and shoulders and nod at her. “Good girl.”
I don’t miss her quite tangible reaction to the words. A tremor runs through her, and her breath catches. I don’t think she even realizes she’s responding so beautifully to the praise.
She lets me pull the dress down over her body, hiding the bright red lingerie, and I zip it up in the back before circling around her to inspect her. It’s a good fit, just like I knew it would be, and it’s perfect for the meeting. She’s quiet, glancing at me uncertainly.
I let my hands roam over her body while I pretend to inspect it. I cup her breasts, trail soft touches down her stomach, and squeeze her ass. She tenses, her lips trembling, but she doesn’t move away from me.
There’s a certain thrill I get, knowing that I’ve molded my partner just to my liking. Lucia isn’t quite there yet, but she looks good in the clothes I picked for her. I have jewelry for her too, and I look forward to brushing her hair.
Then Angelo wolf-whistles. “Looking very, very nice, Princess.”
She startles, obviously having been caught in the moment I was where it was just the two of us. She glances over at him, rolling her eyes. “You’d think that no matter what I was wearing. You’d even find something you liked about the nun clothes.”
I give Angelo a cold glare. “If you can keep your mouth shut, you can stay and masturbate. Otherwise, leave.”
Angelo’s eyebrows rise. “So far, I haven’t seen anything worth jerking off to.”
“And there won’t be anything worth jerking off to,” Lucia says. “Right, Victor?” Like that’s going to make me agree with her.
A quick glance at my alarm clock shows there’s still twenty-five minutes before the meeting. Plenty of time. I brush my thumb over Lucia’s lips. “Mouth or cunt?”

Author Lyn Forester – Sophie O’Dare – Lili Black #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Lyn Forester

Tell us a bit about yourself…

My name is Lyn Forester and I write a number of romantic genres under various pen names. Under Lyn Forester, I write New Adult/Adult sci-fi (both m/f and RH), as well as PNR (mmf and RH).

Have you always wanted to become an author?

Yes, for as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be an artist and an author. After working as a graphic designer for a number of years, I dove into my author dream and now do both full time.

Sophie O’Dare

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Hahaha, which one?

What are you working on now?

I have a number of series in progress. At this very moment, I’m working on the next Lili Black book while plotting out the fourth book in my Poison World series.

Do you have any quirks while working?

No.

What are your hopes for the future?

To keep writing. I never plan to stop.

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

It’s scary, and success (usually) takes time and dedication, so be brave and keep pushing.

Do you have anything to say to your followers?

I’m working on it, I promise!

Beautifully Exposed (Candied Crush Book 10) by @CharityParkerso

Happy release day, Charity 💙

Beautifully Exposed (Candied Crush Book 10)

Zep knows what he wants, and he’s positive it isn’t Frost. Frost has everything Zep needs.

For years, Zep has been working toward the future he envisions. He wants a husband and kids. Zep knows his worth and isn’t willing to settle for less. While Frost is definitely a beauty, Frost is also a liar. He’ll never want the life that Zep pictures for himself.

As a former hockey player turned gym owner, Frost is financially settled. He has been known to mislead men occasionally to keep things impersonal, but he has his reasons. Frost also never messes with anyone he could hurt. He never expected to meet Zep.

When Frost’s secrets are exposed, Zep sees the man in a whole new light. Unfortunately, as much as they want each other, they can’t seem to stay on the same page. Hopefully, they’ll figure out a way to meet in the middle. Otherwise, they’ll miss their shot at real love.

Beautifully Toxic by @CharityParkerso #newrelease

Beautifully Toxic (Candied Crush Book 1) by Charity Parkerson

A famous drummer. A homeless teen. It’s hard to tell which one is the savior.

When Jessie Thunder, a famous drummer, learns a homeless person has been sneaking into his home, Jessie decides to help him out. The eighteen-year-old “boy” is too old to go in the system, and Jessie can’t stand the thought of anyone going hungry. He also hopes rescuing Theo will ease his soul. Otherwise, there’s nothing redeeming left of him.

Even though Theo doesn’t trust Jessie’s help, he doesn’t have anywhere else to go. At first, Jessie’s attention feels like heaven. He’s never had anyone care about him, especially someone as amazing as Jessie. Everything seems perfect. That is, until Theo realizes Jessie’s beauty is only a mask. Inside, Jessie is poison and Theo has to get out before he finds himself in worse shape than when he lived on the street.

With Theo gone and no one to save him, Jessie has to make a choice. He can either rescue himself or drown in the toxic waste his life has become. Only one of those roads leads back to Theo.

Beautifully Toxic is the first book in bestselling author Charity Parkerson’s series, Candied Crush, where the men are like candy—rich, irresistible, and bad for your health.

Cubs for Rent series by Charity Parkerson #amreading @CharityParkerso

First Loser (Cubs for Rent Book 1) by Charity Parkerson

°

Same situation. Different man. It’s a beautiful mess.

After falling for a male escort, and losing him through his own stupidity, Henry meets Tanner. Tanner is tall, dark, and handsome. He’s also young, wealthy, and doesn’t need Henry at all. But Henry is right back in the same boat he’s been in for years, paying someone half his age to spend time with him. Even though Tanner keeps refunding his money, Henry can’t let himself believe Tanner wants him for real. His mistrust is making him miserable, but Henry doesn’t know how to stop.

As one owner of Cubs for Rent—a company that rents men for dates, repairmen, or simply for company, Tanner doesn’t need anyone to take care of him. When he met Henry, Tanner’s only intention had been to get the man out of his friend’s hair. Then, Henry kept calling and booking time with Tanner. Tanner kept accepting and feelings he didn’t want grew. Henry is sweet and insecure. He’s gentle and awkward. Henry is everything that Tanner finds irresistible. It’s too bad Henry is also too blind to see Tanner’s interest as real, because Tanner is tired of trying to convince him.

When Tanner pulls away and meets someone his age, Henry will have to come out of his shell and step up his game. Hopefully, he’s not too late.

**Please note** Cubs for Rent is a Sugar Daddies’ spin-off and is best enjoyed when read in order.

Next Best Thing (Cubs for Rent Book 2)

°

When artless meets masterful, it’s a battle of opposites attract. The prize is a lifetime of happiness.

Orion is caustic and bitter. He doesn’t like people, nor does he enjoy their company. There’s nothing Orion needs beyond a good book. But Tucker keeps coming around and Orion doesn’t understand why he doesn’t want it to stop. As one owner of Cubs for Rent—a male escort service—Tucker already has too many men chasing him. Orion has no intention of joining the flock. Life doesn’t care what he wants.

When Tucker met Orion, Orion accused him of being a liar and shut him down on every level. For someone who’s used to getting any man he wants, Orion is an irresistible challenge. He’s awkward and cranky. His head is always in the clouds and Tucker wants Orion with every fiber of his being. But this might be the one time Tucker doesn’t get his way.

Orion has already suffered enough heartaches in his life, but Orion wants Tucker. That’s a truth he can’t shake. For once, Orion might have to set aside his books and live. How terrifying.

Always Loyal (Cubs for Rent Book 3)

°

Every day Loyal watches him. The desire gets bigger with each passing moment. It’s only a matter of time before it explodes.

After an accident left Loyal in a wheelchair, he’s spent his days fighting to regain the freedom he’s lost. As much as he needs help, Loyal doesn’t want to be pitied. When a blast from the past volunteers his time to make Loyal’s home wheelchair friendly, Loyal has every intention of staying out of Toby’s way. He knows Toby could never forgive him for the past. Loyal never intends to fall back into the same role he played with Toby for years. Life doesn’t care about Loyal’s good intentions.

Toby has known Loyal most of his adult life. For a long time, he considered Loyal his best friend. There’s no way he’ll turn his back when Loyal needs him most, even if every second in Loyal’s company completely breaks him. Unfortunately, the more time Toby spends with Loyal, the more he can’t escape the truth. Loyal will always be the only one for Toby.

As one owner of Cubs for Rent—a business that rents men for dates, home repairs, or simply to keep someone company, Toby has countless men vying for his attention. Loyal is the only one he can’t shake. They’ll have to face the past and all its secrets if they hope to find their way. Tall order doesn’t even begin to describe that endeavor.

Author Joanne Ganci #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Joanne Ganci

Tell us a bit about yourself

Uhm…I’m a married stay at home Mom and *waggles eyebrows* an author! I hate chocolate and bacon and love cherry twizzlers and potato chips. I’m a little random and chaotic. Haha just kidding, I’m a lot random and chaotic. Total hot mess. I’m in love with love and addicted to fiction. Guess that’s why I’m here? Is that enough? I’m pretty awful about talking about myself. My specialty is talking to myself. *nervous laugh*

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

No, actually. It never actually occurred to me that I could do this. I’ve been the last *cringe* almost ten years, not knowing what I wanted to be when I grow up. I’m digging this, now I just need to work on the growing up part.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

For Midland Springs, as I was writing Their Book Nerd, it just kind of made sense to make it a virtually neverending series. And it’s different and honestly probably a little risky but making each book about a different love story featuring different types of pairings (RH, M/M, F/F, Menage, etc.) again, just made sense. To me these are real people in a real town. In a real town you’re going to find all different kinds of people in all different walks of life. Mostly the characters dictate who they are and I’m just a puppet writing out their stories.For the co-write I’m working on with CA Higgins, it actually started with a joke I’ve been telling for years. I don’t even remember if I got it from somewhere or made it up. But CA and I just ran with it and now there is this whole world that I’m just absolutely in love with.

°

°

What are you working on now?

I’m finishing up Lydia’s story, book 2 in the Midland Springs Series. Starting book 3. And the sci-fi urban fantasy co-write with CA Higgins.

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I have to be listening to music. The music changes depending on the book or character POV I’m working on usually. The Khalid station on Amazon Music has been able to cross character POVs and that’s mostly what I’ve been listening to lately.

°

°

What are your hopes for the future?

Just keep writing. Of course I would love to hit bestseller at some point and go to conventions. But the main hope is to just give people joy when they read my words.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Do your research! Look over all your options and see what works for you. Not everything will work for the everyone. But the biggest piece of advice would probably be, don’t be afraid to reach out. We have an amazing community full of amazing women and men that have a wealth of knowledge. It can be intimidating but everyone, for the most part, is so kind and very willing to help you out. Oh, and remember you’re not going to please everyone and it’s not your job to.

°

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

Thank you so much. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I have been completely blown away by each and every one of you. Every review, comment, post, etc. warms my heart. I will never have enough words to thank y’all properly.

Please give a warm welcome to author Charity Parkerson

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m Charity Parkerson and I’m best known for my MM romances. Over the last fourteen years, I’ve written over 200 books. It’s my addiction.

°

Have you always wanted to become an author?

I’ve always loved to write, but like most people, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I just started writing one day and never stopped.

°

°

What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

Since I’m currently working on the 15th book in my Sugar Daddies series, I honestly can’t recall what inspired me to write the first one.

°

What are you working on now?

I have two books going at the same time: Sugar Enforcer and Salty Baby.

°

°

Do you have any quirks while writing?

I like for it to be completely quiet. It’s possible I get distracted easily, lol.

°

What are your hopes for the future?

I’d love to see my books become a movie. That’s my dream.

°

°

Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

This is a business. You have to treat it like one or you’ll easily get lost in the sea of books available. If you love writing, take it seriously.

°

Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I love you all SO much! You’re the reason I’m allowed to keep doing what I love every day. Thank you.
