Enter to win an awesome $25 Amazon Card from author Hunter Shea as he showcases his 8/30/16 release of "The Jersey Devil"!

The Jersey Devil

Everyone knows the legend of the Jersey Devil. Some believe it is an abomination of nature, a hybrid winged beast from hell that stalks the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey searching for prey. Others believe it is a hoax, a campfire story designed to scare children. But one man knows the truth...
Sixty years ago, Boompa Willet came face to face with the Devil—and lived to tell the tale. Now, the creature’s stomping grounds are alive once again with strange sightings, disappearances, and worse. After all these years, Boompa must return to the Barrens, not to prove the legend is real but to wipe it off the face of the earth...
It’ll take more than just courage to defeat the Devil. It will take four generations of the Willet clan, a lifetime of survivalist training, and all the firepower they can carry. But timing is critical. A summer music festival has attracted crowds of teenagers. The woods are filled with tender young prey. But this time, the Devil is not alone. The evil has grown into an unholy horde of mutant monstrosities. And hell has come home to New Jersey...

Exclusive Excerpt: The Billionaire's Voice by J.S. Scott + Giveaway

As an extreme-sports mogul, billionaire Micah Sinclair is comfortable taking risks. But nothing—and no one—has ever challenged him like Tessa Sullivan. He’s fascinated by the woman who’s overcome so much, including the loss of her hearing. The petite blonde dynamo, a small-town restaurateur on the Maine coast, is the most courageous person he knows, and he wants her in his bed. Now all he has to do is convince Tessa to explore their desire.
After a lifetime of loss, Tessa’s finally come to terms with her limitations. Or she would, if a certain sexy businessman weren’t pushing her to want more. And to want him. All her remaining senses are clamoring for her to touch, taste, and feel. But her doubts tell her to go slow when their passion gets too hot.
Micah’s determined to prove to Tessa that she can still have everything she’s ever wanted, including his love. But will she listen to her head—or her heart?

The Billionaire's Voice - The Sinclairs, #4 - Purchase on Amazon


The water turned off soundlessly as Tessa pushed the handle and stood in the enclosure for a moment to wring out her hair. As she stepped out, she reached for the clean towel she’d tossed on the hamper next to the shower, only to find that it wasn’t there.
A shriek of startled fear left her mouth as she turned and saw a very large, very male hand holding out the missing sky-blue towel. Her eyes flew to his face as she screamed, recognizing the intruder.
“Oh, my God. What in the hell are you doing here?” she asked Micah Sinclair as he slowly released his grip on the towel when she reached for it shakily, not bothering to hide the heat in his dark-brown eyes as he stared shamelessly at her nude body. Finally, she jerked on the material hard, freeing the towel from his reluctantly loose grip.
A fiery blush flooded her face and body as she quickly wrapped it around her, wishing she’d grabbed one of the larger, fluffier ones in the closet for her shower, but she didn’t want to use Randi’s nicer stuff. As it was, the threadbare cotton piece of linen she’d chosen barely covered her ass and other private areas she didn’t want exposed. She had no choice but to look at Micah—even though she was mortified—if she wanted to know his response.
His eyes were both hungry and mischievous, a combination that was nearly irresistible.
“I could ask you the same.” He answered slowly, signing with American Sign Language—ASL for short—as he spoke. “Not that I mind. Now we’ve both seen the other one naked.”
Deep, silky smooth, and sinful. That was how she heard Micah’s voice. She had since the minute she’d met him.
Tessa was good at reading lips, but she found it much easier with people she knew well. Although Micah wasn’t exactly a stranger, she’d always been able to understand him, for some reason. She’d been able to pick up the majority of his words from their very first encounter, which had been in a very similarly embarrassing way—except he had been the one standing in a bathroom naked, a tantalizing sight that Tessa had never been able to erase from her brain—no matter how much she tried. “I’m caretaking the house,” she told him hastily, trying to pull the towel more snugly around her body. “I moved in several months ago. After Evan and Randi’s wedding. What are you doing here?”
She shivered, but she wasn’t really cold. The warmth in Micah’s eyes was enough to heat the small home for an entire Maine winter. But there was something about him that looked . . . different.
Micah Sinclair was usually cocky, a trait that the Sinclair men shared. Not rude, exactly, but Tessa was starting to think it was a behavior that every Sinclair male had acquired at birth. Every one of them exuded almost an obnoxious confidence that could also be perceived as arrogant.
Silently, her eyes moved over him, taking in every detail. He was dressed casually in a pair of jeans that had softened and faded with age, and hugged his body lovingly. The T-shirt he was wearing probably dated back to his college days, the blue fabric sporting the logo of an Ivy League school. It wasn’t his clothing that seemed . . . off; it was something else that seemed different. It wasn’t strange to see  him in comfortable clothing. Other than his formal dress for Evan’s wedding and Hope’s winter party, Tessa had noticed that he wasn’t a fancy dresser, even though he was no less wealthy than his brothers or cousins.
Usually, he appeared to be a rugged, outdoorsy kind of guy. Probably because that was exactly what he was: an extreme-sports mogul. But today he wasn’t exuding the same barely-containable energy he usually did.
He looks . . . exhausted.
She studied his face again, noticing the weary look and the dark circles beneath his eyes.
“I bought the house,” he announced suddenly.
Tessa was glad Micah had signed along with his statement, because she’d been so preoccupied with his eyes that she hadn’t looked at his lips. “This house?” she squeaked.
He nodded.
“How is that possible? Randi didn’t tell me, and she and Evan are away in the Orient for a belated honeymoon.” Her friend would be gone for several more weeks, and she hadn’t texted Tessa for several days. Surely Randi would have let her know the house had sold so she could get out before the new owner arrived.
Micah grinned at her, making him suddenly seem much more approachable. “It was a quick deal. Evan and Randi are under the impression that I’m not taking possession for a while. They wouldn’t have wanted you to leave.”
“Then why are you here?” she asked, feeling uncomfortable standing in the bathroom with only a towel wrapped around her body while she conversed with the hottest guy she’d ever met.
Honestly, it was pretty humiliating.
He shrugged. “Spontaneous trip. I decided to check out the property once the deal closed.”
Tessa knew instinctively that his decision to come here wasn’t completely on a whim. She might not be able to hear, but her other senses and her instincts were sharp, and she could feel that something wasn’t quite right. “And did you check out the property?” she asked, feeling awkward.
“Not all of it. I didn’t just buy this place. I purchased several other parcels that are connected to this property. That’s a lot of acreage to see.” He paused before adding, “I’m actually rather glad I decided to check out the house first. My timing was excellent.”
He was teasing her, but she still blushed all over again. “I’m not glad you’re here. I’m naked,” she replied bluntly.
“Unfortunately for me, you aren’t anymore.” His grin grew broader, and his eyes caressed her devilishly.
He’s flirting.
The thought made her feel dumbfounded, even though she was sure that Micah probably flirted with every woman he met. Men didn’t look at her as a sexual creature. She was deaf, disabled as far as most males were concerned. Guys might like her as a friend, but they did not look at her like she was the hottest female on the East Coast. Except . . . for some reason . . . this man did.
“I need to get dressed,” Tessa mumbled, trying to make her way around Micah Sinclair’s muscular body blocking the entrance to the small bathroom. The air in the room was getting electric with sexual tension and it made her uncomfortable, especially since the real attraction was probably all coming from her.
He caught her bare upper arm and tilted her face up to look at him. “Tessa?”
She felt her heart skitter as she inhaled his intoxicatingly masculine scent. He was too close, so close that she could feel the heat of his body, pressed up against his hip.
“Yes?” she choked out, wanting to escape the small room that suddenly felt much too warm and much too small.
“I didn’t mean to scare you. I’m sorry.” He didn’t sign this time, but she caught his words.
“If what you’re saying is true, I’m the one invading your privacy,” she reminded him, her gaze staying on his lips because he wasn’t signing. “I wish I had known the property had sold. I would have left right away.”
“You’re not intruding. In fact, seeing you here is the best thing that’s happened to me in a while.”
Damn. He must be desperate for entertainment if seeing me here in his new property is actually a good thing.
Not knowing what to say, she scrambled around him and pulled her arm from his grasp. “I’ll go as soon as I can,” she told him hastily as she darted out of the bathroom.
“I hope not.” Micah smiled at her departing figure, his soft, low comment going unheard and unnoticed by the fleeing woman.

Sweetest Taboo - A Dirtiest Novel, #3 / Stark

In this irresistible Stark International Novel, J. Kenner ups the ante on Dirtiest Secret and Hottest Mess, proving once again with the S.I.N. series that she “may very well have cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them” (RT Book Reviews).
All eyes are on us . . . and there’s nowhere to run.

Everyone has their own ideas about Dallas Sykes: He’s a reckless billionaire, a devilish playboy, a man who gets whatever he wants the minute he wants it. But I know the real Dallas behind the money, bravado, and power—and he’s completely, blissfully mine.

We carefully guarded our secrets, and in each other’s arms we sought refuge from our dark past. Our pain became our pleasure, our control within the chaos. But we could only hide from the truth for so long.

Now we’ve let loose our inhibitions and are ready to face the future. And no matter what people think or say, coming clean is its own sweet reward.

Sweetest Taboo is intended for mature audiences.

Body Apology

Dear body, I’m sorry that I didn’t pay attention when I should have been. I used you and abused you treated you like a garbage disposal at times in others used you in ways that just made me hate you more. I shoveled you full of junk that could hurt you and destroy you. I knew that what I was doing wasn’t good but didn’t stop. I took out whatever I was going through out on you and I’m sorry. I would hide and cover and at times make fat jokes about you because that was my way of dealing with what I did. Now I know that I don’t have to hide and that it’s ok to love me for me just the way I am. I am beautiful just the way I am. If I want to change myself that is ok as well but, I don’t have to if I don’t want to. If I choose not to my body is beautiful as it is. I don’t need the confirmation from anyone else to feel that way. I am so sorry that I wasted so much time hating you and not accepting my body as it is. No more time wasted today starts a new me and a new love of who I am. I am Beautiful!

This is my apology to my body.

My Melody Release Day Blitz

My Melody
By T.J. West

Cover Model: Craig Gierish

People think I'm a ladies man. On the outside I look like your typical stud who is only out for sex, but there is more to me than just my rocker persona. Don't get me wrong, I love to entertain the ladies with a grin to melt their panties, a body made for sin and fingers that can play a woman's body like they play my bass guitar, but there's more to me than what meets the eye. I come from a good, tight knit family who instilled in me to always go after what I wanted....

And I wanted her...

I had a heart full of love to give to one woman, there was just one problem, finding the woman who wanted it...

Until her...she was older, wiser, showed me things I had no clue about. Our relationship was supposed to be fun, until she took it one step too far and I realized I was way in over my head.

I wanted more....

I'm a stay at home Mom of two teenagers. I became a self published author in 2014 after being inspired by many self indie authors. I have enjoyed writing for a long time, but never thought my imagination would carry me to this point in my life. After many years of losing my passion, and from enjoying raising my children I am finally at a place where I can reach for my dreams. Whether I become a best seller or not, I am loving the journey I am on and will continue to write as long as my readers are willing to read my stories.
Other interests: Watching many many TV shows (yes I am addicted), movies, hiking, going to the beach, spending time with the family, road trips, cocktail nights with friends and being interactive with my fans, friends and family on Facebook.
