#NewRelease: Saved by a Soldier by @alisonmelloauth #romance

Saved By a Soldier By Alison Mello

Release Date: June 14, 2016
Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Patricia Ann Fitzgerald is no man’s arm candy…

Refusing to entertain her mother’s ridiculous notion that she should become the perfect little housewife for her ex-boyfriend Ben, Patty escapes to her father’s lake house to focus on what matters most to her. She has to break through her writer’s block and start her next book.

Medically discharged from the service and suffering from PTSD, Carter Montgomery is still trying to get his life back in order…

When Carter's father Jackson suggests a week at the lake, it's not only so he can gain a little clarity about his future. Jackson has other plans for his recovering son, intending for him to watch over his best friend’s daughter while she’s on a solo writing retreat—an idea that doesn’t please Carter at all.

Patty finds it hard to get any work done when her attention keeps diverting to the handsome stranger next door…

Patty is persuaded to attend a charity event, despite knowing her ex will be in attendance. When Ben rudely interrupts Patty’s dance with her father and drags her off the floor, Carter is quick to intervene. He’s tired of admiring Patty from afar, and refuses to see her treated that way. Ready to ditch the stuffy event, Patty escapes with her savior someplace where they can finally talk.

Ben always gets what he wants, and he isn’t willing to let Patty slip away…

Patty fights to preserve her blooming relationship with Carter from the critical eyes of her mother and the scheming ways of her ex. Will Carter manage to get his life back in order in time to save Patty from the life she never wanted?

About the author

Alison Mello is a wife and stay at home mom to a wonderful little boy. She lives with her amazing family in Massachusetts. She loves playing soccer, basketball and football with her son.
After having her son, Alison started reading again and fell in love with Contemporary Romance. Reading made her happy and gave her something to do when she had downtime.  As she started to read more, she started to notice things she really enjoyed in a book and things she didn’t. She began to have ideas for writing one of her own.  One day she literally woke up and started writing.  She realized that if there was ever a time for her to write, it was now.  She had a part time job to give her something to do. The hours at work were slow and she was bored with what she was doing, so while her son was off enjoying his friends over summer vacation she got started.
Alison finished the first book in two weeks and decided that she really enjoyed writing, so she kept going. She already had ideas in mind for books two and three, so she kept writing.  That is how the Learning to Love Series was born. Somewhere along the line, one of my Beta readers convinced me that Michael, a character from Finding Love, needed his own story.  That is when Alison added the fourth and final book. Alison hopes you enjoy her books as much as she enjoyed writing them.
She’s so glad she started this writing journey and hopes you will stay with her for the ride. Chasing Dreams is scheduled to release in April and the first two books of the Love Conquers Life series will be out this summer!

#NewRelease #Giveaway Tour: Club Revenge by @JMDabney_Author #LGBT #Fantasy


Welcome to the Book Tour for Club Revenge by J.M. Dabney. And be sure to read to the bottom for your chance to win a $25 Amazon eGift card from Sensuous Promos! 




A family forged in battle. Amora Medina-Jackyl knew one thing well—vengeance. She’d inflicted pain without mercy to those who deserved the punishment. She’d lived by one motto her entire existence-- family was to be protected above all else. An ancient cult murdered her parents and siblings when she was little more than a child. The Order of Angelus hadn’t understood the Hell they’d brought down on themselves that one brutal night. Amora was many things in her four centuries. A daughter and a sister, a mother, yet she was best known as a killer. When she finally meets her end, Amora will have hundreds, maybe thousands of lives to answer for. Her only wish is to find one moment of peace. She denies her need as much as she fights to protect it. When the one woman who can bring her serenity comes into her life: can Amora destroy century old walls to let her in? Lies and conspiracies tear at the fabric of sanity—of what’s right. Can truths come to light that change the reality of a family who’s known only the taste of revenge and loss?





Excerpt #1: (R-rated: Violence and Language) 
“I don't need your fucking lectures.”
“Too damn bad, you're getting one. I won't allow you to hunt my people. What would you have done if we didn't get here in time,” Seamus asked.
“Fed,” Amora answered with brutal honesty. A hidden part of her, one she’d long buried urged her to feel something other than bloodlust—desire.
“We've been friends and allies for over a century and I've allowed,” Amora advanced, cutting off what Seamus would say next.
“Allowed, you've let me do nothing,” she hissed.
“Shut up, Jackyl, you're not a monster, you're more than what they created in that goddamn cell. I won't countenance your self-destruction anymore. Over the last three centuries you've done everything to live down to your training. Will you attack my mate if the thirst gets to be too much one day?”
“I would never touch Yvette,” She bellowed and clenched her fists.
“How can I be sure of that? You chased down an innocent and attacked her.”
“It's none of your business.” The beautiful stranger, Lark, her scent still overwhelmed Amora’s senses. It wasn’t the usual craving—the need to only feed and fuck—this had been something different. What it was terrified her more than the nightmares or the threat of captivity.
“Don't make me have to kill you, my friend, the battle may be bloody and more than likely I wouldn't win, but you pull this shit again I'll put you down. Don't push me, Amora.” Seamus turned away. “Someone will keep an eye on you until you leave. You're a danger to my pack members and I never thought I'd ever say that.”
The threat and promise in Seamus’ voice were clear. He wouldn’t hesitate to end her life. She could’ve forced his hand and dragged him into a fight. Dying in battle was an honor, Valkyries swooped down to take those who’d earned an honorable death and their place in Heaven—Valhalla. It wasn’t for Amora, there wasn’t anything noble in her battles. Maybe her intentions skirted the edges, but in the end all she wanted was her fix. The sweet promise of fear and the rush of her one real high.
Amora straightened and watched one of her oldest friends walk away from you. Seamus disappeared into the line of trees. She instantly sensed a wolf and leopard in the darkness. Seamus could have his power-play and treat her like a wild animal because Amora was. She was only instinct. The desire to survive by any means necessary.
Although, one of the last remaining pieces of her humanity cracked. Amora was a monster, no more than fangs and cruelty. She shook her head and retreated into the shadows in the opposite direction from the camp. The truth was she couldn't be trusted and sooner or later she'd meet her demise. Because as Seamus believed Amora was a dangerous animal in need of death. She just wasn't ready to die today, maybe tomorrow.
