The only way to reap the benefits of true love is to put your own demons behind and give love a shot…

When secrets start to arise will the two beat the odds or part ways and let it destroy them both?

Tonight is a big night.I’ve taken my time to ensure that I look good. I stare in the mirror as I admire the new lingerie I have to weartonight. I used my uniform allowance toget this sexy getup. Roger expects us toalways be fresh, never wearing the same outfit within a month rotation becauseof the regulars. There are no lower class sleezeballs here. This is where the big dogs come out andplay. This is the most private club intown. If you knew who some of ourhighest paying customers were you would know why.

I have a birthday partythat’s reserved the front table of the stage tonight, a group of ten men, alldrunk off their asses already I’m sure. I could tell when I peeked out the door as they arrived that a few ofthem are newbies by their drooling, excited demeanor. This is what makes my job interesting andfun: breaking them in. A man gets a good first time and they’ll becoming back for more, meaning more cash for me. I place my tall heel into the seat of my chair and rub baby oil down myleg, giving me a sexy edge. Plus, itkeeps the hands from going past the point of restriction.
Ifinish the other leg and take one final look in the mirror. It’s a sexy version of a clown; a white babydoll trimmed in all of the bright colors. The birthday hat and the sexy makeuptop it off. My ruffle front thong isorange and it is the final dessert of the hour. I paint my lips with a matching cherry-red lipstick like my name andsmack them in the mirror.
“Cherry,you’re up in ten. Don’t keep themwaiting. This is my biggest payout ofthe night.”
Iroll my eyes in the mirror at the sound of Roger’s voice as he pokes his headinside the door. Show the man green andhe’d lease us out in private hotels I’m sure. He would never admit that though.
“I’llbe right out, Roger.”
Helikes me though, because something about my pretty face keeps his pocketsfull. I’ve already been up on stage afew times tonight, so for now I’ll be circulating the room. “Showtime,” I mumble, and strut out into theclub, ready for action.
Theclub is packed with businessmen lingering in various sections of the club. Ilove weekends. It’s when all of the high rollers come out to play. They eachhave a different story: some leaving their wives at home for a fresh piece,some making this their last stop before walking the aisle, and the rest collegekids looking for a little fun. I don’t care what they’re here for as long astheir pockets are empty when they leave and they leave everything in the club;after all, I didn’t make them come here.
I look around the room,spotting my party sitting in front of the stage. There are a few cute ones inthis batch. This is going to be fun. My eyes lock on one. He takes me in and gives me a smirk before hestarts to approach me. “Hey there, sexy. What can I do for you?”
He broadens his smileand gives me a wad of cash. “I need a favor.”
“Oh yeah. What’ll it be,Darlin’?”
He leans in to whisperin my ear, refraining from touching me because he knows it’s against the rulesunless he’s buying a dance. “It’s my boy’s birthday. There is enough there fora hefty tip if you’ll take him to the VIP room for more privacy. I’ve alreadybooked the dance.”
I look around for Rogerto confirm. I find him standing across the room and he nods at me, giving me thego ahead. This guy has some nice friends. A private lap dance is easily a grand and paid up front to Roger. It is explained that’s before the tip, sothis guy knows the rules, meaning he’s been here before. “Okay, sexy, butthat’s an awfully generous gift to give someone else. Are you sure you don’twant it for yourself?” He’s cute. I wouldn’t mind giving him the dance.
He leans back to look atme. “As much as I would love to watch you grinding on top of me, my boy comesfirst, sexy. Maybe another time; I’ll be back.” He winks and backs away with alarge grin on his face. I shrug seductively as I watch him leave. His loss.
Ihead to the VIP room to get ready for my dance, greeting Gerry at thedoor. All private rooms have a bouncerkeeping guard to ensure that the women are safe at all times. As I’m getting my music queued up, I humsoftly under my breath and wait for my client to arrive. A few moments in andthere is a knock at the door. I walkover and open it. Greeting me on the other side of the door is an incrediblysexy man. Hell yes, this is going to befun.
Something about his facelooks familiar, but I can’t place it. Hehas dark hair, intense green eyes, and is physically fit by the defined muscleprotruding from his fitted shirt. He musthave come here right after work, because he is wearing a suit, but he’s removedthe jacket and he rolled up the sleeves of his dress shirt, revealing tattoosrunning up his arms. I don’t know whatit is about a man with rolled up sleeves and tattoos, but it turns me on in away I don’t understand. Maybe it’s thebusiness meets bad boy persona. Whateverit is has me motivated to get closer to him, making my job easier.
I step aside to let him enter. “Hi, I’mCherry.”
He studies me for amoment with heated eyes. The way helooks at me is as if he’s seen me before, like he knows me.
“Hi, Cherry.” My name rolls off his tongue in the mostsexual manner, causing a rush of excitement between my legs. This is going to be one hell of a night: sexyand seductive.
The music starts to playand I place one hand in the center of my sexy stranger’s chest, grabbing ahandful of black material. I walkbackward and drag him over to the seating area before turning, pushing himbackwards until he falls onto the couch behind him, giving me a deep, sexylaugh along the way.
“Damn,” he says, eggingme on. Not wasting any time, I placeeach hand on the back of the couch to each side of his shoulders and flip myhair from side to side. It starts the fullbody roll that follows, pressing each segment of skin to his clothing, endingwith my pelvis. I stand and turn,closing in on him, resting against him in a sitting position. I shake my ass against his crotch, enjoyingthe feel of it hardening beneath me. While cupping my breasts I roll my head back, grinding to the beat ofthe music. Turning my head to the side,I watch his eyes glaze over as I touch my body, skimming my hands down in aslow motion. I continue gyrating on hislap, listening to his breathing pick up, confirming the arousal that ispressing into the crack of my ass.
I breathe in deeply…. smelling his citrusyaftershave; something I would say is unique to him. My hormones are quickly running wild,something different than normal. It doesn’t take me long to get lost in themusic and this sexy man pressed against my backside as I allow him to becomefamiliar with my body. Time standsstill…for a while. I hear him grunt, praisingme for the havoc I’m causing on his cock and he isn’t even naked.
I finish out the danceas the song comes to an end, standing and adjusting my outfit. He stands as I run my fingers through my hairand I watch as he fishes in his pockets. He pulls out a wad of cash, handing it all to me. I briefly stare at him in shock, but brush itoff and reach for it. He doesn’t immediately turn it loose.
“How much for housecalls?”
I’m about to saysomething, anything to deny his question, but he beats me to the punch.
“Listen, I don’t usuallycome to places like this, but I’m here, and now that I am, I kind of likeit. You have a beautiful body. Let me show you what I can do with mine,” hefinishes quietly.
What a generous man, butI can tell he enjoyed the dance from the large bulge at the front of his pants,so I know what he’s referring to.
“I don’t think so,sweetie.”
I’m ready to thank himand leave when he grabs my hand, pulling me to him. He presses his lips to mine before I evenknow what’s happening. I can taste thewhiskey on his breath. Poor guy is sodrunk I don’t think he knows what he’s asking me, but the way his handsintroduce themselves to my backside I can’t be sure. He pulls away and touches his index finger tomy lips, silencing me.
“Think about it. The club closes at two. I’ll be outside waiting if you decide to takeme up on my offer. Sometimes outside ofthe norm can be freeing…”
He turns and walks away, leaving me standinghere alone. I’m not sure what the helljust happened, but I find myself considering it. I never do this. There’s one reason why….”

Ivy Pierce has been to Hades and back trying to escape Nix and his evil plans to use her. After a failed attempt to save her loved ones, she was forced to leave her friends, her sister and the boy she had fallen in love with, Ryder Sutton.

And yet Olympus isn’t finished with her yet.

As Nix plots to overthrow the legendary mountain, Ivy is pulled back into the twisted, manipulative world of the Greek pantheon. Thrust into the middle of an ancient feud, Ivy will learn quickly that Nix is not the only threat to her freedom and not the only god interested in using her unique skillset to resurrect the Age of Olympus.

In a deadly game between two powerful factions of Greek gods, Ivy will have to battle both fate and the Fates in order to secure her future once and for all. She will discover new powers, fight for her friends’ lives and convince the only boy she has ever loved that he can trust her again.

In the end, she’ll learn the hardest lesson of all. This isn’t a fable or a Greek myth, her life is a love story.

***WARNING*** This book is intended for 18+ due to strong language, violent scenarios, and sexual content.
This book is the completion to the book Tryst. It is NOT a standalone, and it DOES NOT end in a cliffhanger.

After having the love of his life walk away, Tristan is left with only one option, to find her and bring her home. He finds the help he needs in locating her from a most unexpected source. But no matter how much he wants her by his side, he knows she will never agree, so long as Darla is out there looking to destroy her.
Bentley has made some hard decisions in her life, but none harder than walking away from the one person she’s come to love more than life itself. She knows Darla will never stop until one of them is dead. Having Tristan by her side just leaves him at risk, and gives Darla an extra piece of leverage to torment her with.
If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours; if they don’t they never were.
Richard Bach
What happens when you just can’t let go? When you know without a doubt they belong with you, but will never come back?

Title: Beautiful Dangerous

Author: Penny Dee

Synopsis: It seemed like a good idea at the time. Get over my break-up by having a one-night stand with a rock ‘n’ roll hottie and move on with my life. Going on tour as official photographer to the world’s number one band was not part of the plan.

Have you ever dreamed of being plucked out of the crowd by one of the hottest rock stars in the world?

I didn’t even know who Ozstryker were when my reckless sister Beth dragged me along to their concert. I went solely to keep her out of trouble, not for me to get tangled up with the famous guitarist renowned for his magnificent shirtless torso and talented fast hands.

I had no intention of becoming a groupie, let alone anything else. But when Jax Ozstryker invited me on a date, I decided it was time for a little fun. Not that the night ended how I had planned – or how he planned, for that matter – I got a job and he didn’t get laid.

Now I’m on tour with the biggest band in the world with my crazy, unpredictable sister for company and a beautiful dangerous attraction for my new boss. I never dreamed life could be so crazy. Or complicated.

But this is life on the road – where nothing makes sense and everything is possible.

About the Author:

I have written stories for as long as I can remember. I wrote my first book when I was five years old. It was called, The Goodies, and it was a short story about driving to the shops to get some milk. Needless to say, it was a very short book and hardly the page turner. It was also illustrated in orange felt tip pen because it was the only felt tip pen left in the pencil case that wasn’t dried up and useless.

My first attempt at writing romance was in high school when my athletic ambitions were replaced with Sunday sessions in my bestfriends bedroom, smoking cigarettes and writing smut about the hot guy at school. They were dreadfully crude stories. Lots of awkward fumblings in the dark or a series of awful first kisses. They were also very straight forward. Very straight to the point. Because I didn’t have a clue about what I was talking about. And I used terrible words such as “shaft”, “her moist warmth” and “velvet cavern”…yeah, they were awesome.

In following years I wisely gave up the cigarettes, became Mum to the “best kid in the world” and married a vastly understanding and supportive soul who tolerated the complete absence of my inner domestic goddess. Through a lot of trial and error, I think I may have started to write stories other people would want to read … without an orange felt tip pen in sight…

Excerpt

“What time they due to land?” Sal asks. He loops a tie, pre-knotted and ready to go, over his head.
“Twenty minutes.” With traffic the way it is, we’ll be there in ten.Sal tightens the tie around his neck, placing the ridiculous fucking chauffeur’s hat on his head. He tucks his hair back behind his ears. He needs to cut it, but will the bastard listen? Hell, no. He never listens to a word I say. “Are you ready?” he asks.

I take my eyes off the road, arching an eyebrow at him. Who the hell does he think he’s talking to? I’ve been doing this job longer than him, after all. I’ve never blinked. Never not been ready. He gets the point pretty damn quickly.

“All right, man, I’m sorry.”

When we arrive at the airfield, we’re directed to hangar twelve, no questions asked. Paddy McLaughlin’s own men would have arrived around now—if we hadn’t already beaten the shit out of them and handcuffed them to a pillar inside an old cardboard factory down on the wharf—so we’re expected. Kaitlin McLaughlin’s plane is delayed. I’m already bored and itching to go by the time the private jet touches down. Sal climbs out of the car and leans against the front passenger door, waiting for the prissy Irish princess and her entourage to exit the plane. When she does, we’re in luck.

Normally, Paddy doesn’t send his little girl anywhere without two personal bodyguards. Today, she’s only accompanied by one. Sal taps the hood of the car as he goes out to take her bags. I have the engine purring in anticipation as he opens the back passenger side door for her and she climbs inside.

Huge sunglasses cover her eyes. That full mouth of hers is perfectly visible in the rearview, though. “Where the fuck is Ray?” she asks. Her father may be first generation Irish, but Kaitlin was born and raised in the States—she sounds like a spoiled little Yank bitch.

“Mr. McLaughlin needed him for something else. He sent us instead.”
She slides the sunglasses down the bridge of her nose, peering at me over the car’s half-raised privacy screen. “And who are you?”
I give her a tight-lipped smile, doing my best to keep my tongue in my head. We need the bodyguard to get in the car, and then we’re golden. Until then, I’m Jerry, the friendly town car driver. “Jerry. My buddy there, that’s Gareth. We’re new.”

“I can see that.” She makes a low, humming sound at the back of her throat. She sounds like she approves. Sorry, sweetheart. I don’t touch crazy pussy. But I will introduce you to my old man, all the same. He just can’t wait to fucking meet you.

The door behind me opens and I feel the car dip as someone gets in—I didn’t notice before, but the lone bodyguard with Kaitlin is a woman. Must be the chick Roberto was talking about. I get a good look at her in the rearview and find myself taking a second one for good measure. She’s blisteringly hot. Maybe in her mid-twenties? Long dark hair, tied back into a braid. High cheekbones. A mouth to rival Kaitlin’s. Her tits strain against her tight black shirt as she twists to put on her seatbelt. You can tell she works out; her clothes fit her far too well for her not to know she looks good in them, too.

Just like Kaitlin, she asks, “Where’s Ray?”

“Busy doing something for Daddy,” Kaitlin informs her, which saves me from spinning the lie again.
“Okay. Straight to the bar, then.” The body guard’s head doesn’t even lift, but she’s a professional. She assesses me in the mirror just as I’ve assessed her. I pretend not to notice as Sal folds himself into the passenger seat.

“Of course.” I press the button for the privacy screen, raising it the rest of the way, blocking out all sound from the back of the car. Sal turns and gives me one of his wicked, crazy-ass grins. He’s enjoying this already. “All right, then, big brother. Let’s do this.” He leans forward and hits a button on the dash—and every single door on the town car automatically locks. “No backing out now.”

I burn out of the hangar to the sounds of muffled thuds from the back of the car. The bodyguard’s not stupid. She’s heard the doors locking and knows something isn’t right. “Motherfucker! Open this up right now!”

Normally there’s an intercom in these cars, but this one’s different. Sal and I smashed the shit out of this car’s intercom with two lump hammers and ripped out the wiring. We also lined the roof with lead. The girls in the back aren’t striking up a conversation with us any time soon. And they aren’t making any phone calls to dear old Papa McLaughlin, either.

As I head back toward the city, the shouting from the back gets louder. It’s accompanied by the dull thudding of feet trying to smash out the privacy screen. Sal raps his knuckles against the glass, grinning again. “Bitch sounds crazy back there. I don’t think she likes the modifications we’ve made.”
I allow myself a small smile as we hit the George Washington Bridge, heading back toward North Manhattan. So far Operation: Kidnap Kaitlin has been a roaring success. Sal pulls out his cell and starts tapping into it with quick fingers. “Telling the old man we’re on our way?”

He nods. “Bastard better give us credit where credit’s due. He’s probably still organising his own fucking birthday party. Meanwhile, we have just successfully taken our mark hostage. We’re on the homeward stretch.”

The fucking homeward stretch.

The thing about saying you’re on the homeward stretch is that often it’s like waving a red flag at a bull. Fate must hear that phrase and decide to fuck over the poor schmuck who was dumb enough to utter it every single fucking time. It’s only seconds after Sal’s parted with those words that the electric window behind me—the bodyguard’s side window—shatters. We knew the bodyguard would be armed, but we didn’t expect anyone to be shooting out the damn side windows. An eruption of fragmented diamonds explodes sideways, spraying a bright yellow smart car with a million shards of glass. The sound of the firing gun is almost deafening.

“What the fuck?”

The smart car veers sideways, smashing into us; I press my foot to the floor, grinding my teeth at the sound of screeching metal and more hammering from the back as I swerve through the traffic. Sal twists in his seat, pulling his gun and pressing it to the glass of the privacy screen. His finger’s on the trigger. “She’s going fucking crazy. I’m gonna shoot the bitch.”

About the Authors

Callie Hart

Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and molding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.
Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.
Lili Saint Germain

★ Release Blitz ☆ Bitter Sweet Deception by Tara Oakes

WARNING***
This novella is intended for those 18+ of age and contains strong language, sexual content, and adult situations.The Kingsmen M.C’s saga continues in this newest installment of Tara Oakes’ tantalizing new series. In the first three novella’s you’ve come to know and love the characters within the club. Jay and Lil’s have had their epic love story play out over the pages of “A Lil’ Less Broken”, followed by “A Lil’ Less Lost” and finally, “A Lil’ Less Hopeless”. While their fairytale is far from over, the next arc in the series concentrates on some of the other intriguing characters that have been woven throughout Jay and Lil’s storyline.

The question on everyone’s mind is…. WHO IS CHARLIE? And what is she hiding?
Planting herself deep within the club’s inner circle, Charlie came to Chisolm with one goal in mind… to destroy the Kingsmen, M.C., no matter the personal cost. An unknown hatred fuels her mission to take them down. Pairing herself up with one of the club’s bad boy’s, the M.C.’s enforcer, Clink, seemed like just the ticket to get her in the door.

Once inside the club she had been eyeing from afar, she comes to realizes things are very different from what she had imagined them to be. Villainizing the group as a whole for an injustice that was done to her many years earlier no longer seemed to fit with growing attachments and relationships she was forming.

And then there’s Clink. He may very well be the wild card thrown into the mix that derailed Charlie’s plans from the get go. Originally, serving as nothing but a way in to the club, and a body to warm her sheets at night, Clink has thrown Charlie for a loop. Determined from an early age to never need a man, Charlie can’t help but find herself drawn to him in a carnal and ethereal way. She’s tried to fight it, to deny it, but it was in vain. He calls her sugar… but, she’s anything but sweet.

A chance twist of luck placed Charlie right in the middle of club politics, where she was able to help free the club’s Vice President, Jay, from serving time for murder he did not commit, but willingly confessed to in Book 2. Her risk earned her the hard earned respect and admiration that is hard to come by in the world of the M.C.

Now that she finally has a place of her own in life, a place where she belongs and is wanted… is she willing to give it up? Give Him up? Willing to let it all slip through her fingers? Find out in Book 4 of Tara Oakes’ Kingsmen M.C. series, “Bitter Sweet Deception”
