BOOK TOUR + GIVEAWAY: Unforseen Obsessions by Valerie J. Clarizio #Suspense #Romance @VClarizio

After Alex Polecheck's police officer husband, Sam, is stabbed in cold blood, she vows to see the murderer brought to justice. Peter, Sam’s best friend, and fellow police officer, seems to be the only member of the Police Department interested in catching the killer. 

Peter sets out on a perilous hunt for the killer, while trying to protect Alex, who appears to be next on the murderer’s list. 

The mystery begins to unravel when Peter finds a connection between the murder of Sam and two other law enforcement officers, who were all part of an internet crime taskforce. Peter and Alex find themselves alone in the battle for justice and truth when they discover members of the local police department cannot be trusted. Will Peter piece together the puzzle before Alex is silenced? While battling to protect Alex, will he be able to continue to conceal his love for her? 

Amazon  *  KOBO  *  iTunes  *  Barnes & Noble

Alex leaned back and pressed her body to Peter’s. His chest was firm, and his flesh was hot. She tilted her head back and rested it on his shoulder. He skimmed his mouth down the side of her neck, and gently caressed her breasts with his hands.
Alex’s breathing intensified. It was exactly what she wanted. She turned to face Peter, placed her arms around his neck, and pressed her lips to his, parting them slightly to invite him in. Within seconds, his soft sweet kiss turned so passionate Alex nearly lost her mind. The taste of him seeped into her, stunning her, leaving her weak and breathless.
She removed her arms from around his neck and unbuttoned his shirt, displaying his broad chest and washboard abs. She kissed his chest and stomach as she exposed them. Under her roaming mouth and hands, his skin was hot and smooth, his muscles firm.
She looked up at him and his mouth swooped down and took hers, leading her into another mouthwatering kiss as invigorating as the first one. As they kissed, she undid the button and zipper to his slacks and gave them a little tug, dropping them to the floor.
Peter’s groping hands tugged her dress from her hips. He paused and stared at her body for a moment. His eyes darkened. He reached forward and slipped his fingers under the narrow side straps of her lacy, black panties and slid them off her before he led her over to the bed.
Alex pulled the covers back, climbed in, and lay on her back, ready and waiting for him. He yanked off his boxers, exposing his magnificent erection, and then slid in beside her. He leaned up on one elbow, gazing down at her with his dark, seductive brown eyes. From the intensity of his stare, she was sure he could see into her soul. She felt herself floating, drifting under his spell. He’d already awakened every pulse point in her body, and he’d yet to really touch her. But he’d already touched the most important part of her, her heart.
Peter stroked her stomach with his fingers. Long, soft, slow strokes. His penetrating gaze still locked on her eyes. He broke free from her stare and kissed her lightly on her neck. His hand moved to her breasts, caressing, kneading. With his thumb and forefinger, he teased her taut nipples. His kisses trailed down from her neck to her chest, and then to her breasts. His warm, moist tongue flicked over her nipples, giving each one their due attention as he skimmed his hand over her stomach, lowering it to her special place. His skilled fingers circled her swollen bead of arousal.
Shock, pleasure, and heat spread through her like wildfire. Her urgency grew. “Peter, I need you in me,” she whispered.
He stared into her eyes as he positioned his body on top of hers. She quivered as he gently slid himself into her and moved slowly as if savoring every moment. With each long, slow stroke, she felt her orgasm building, heightening. She clung to the edge, teetering, trying to hold on, waiting for him. But she was slipping, losing control. His thrusts grew quicker and deeper. Following his lead, she met his every thrust. She couldn’t hold on any longer. A tidal wave washed through her, her muscles pulsating inside her at the very moment Peter reached his climax. She floated down, breathing out his name.
Peter lay still for a moment, resting his head to the side of hers. “I love you Alex, I always have.”
Alex’s eyes swelled with tears. “I love you too, Peter,”
Alex lay still, overcome with emotion. His tenderness moved her. His love surrounded her. She nearly wept. She never thought in a million years that she would be lucky enough to find true love a second time.

WIN A GIFT CARD: #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: (Adult) 

“You know the first time I caught your scent, the fear with the spice of arousal,” Her fingers circled Lark’s ankles and stroked upward, teasing the hollows behind her knees and along her outer thighs. Fingertips met the edge of cotton. “Lark, what was the rule?”

“But—I—Amora, I couldn’t just.” Lark sighed and turned away. “I can’t walk around without panties under my skirts.”

“I’ll keep cutting them off until you have none left.”

“Amora, but—” Lark heavily sighed as Amora stopped the words by hooking her fingers in the side of the offending cloth and ripped them.

“Lark, I made myself clear, I think your offense warrants punishment.” Lark’s eyes went wide at her statement and her mate shook her head.

“Pun-punishment? Amora, that is highly unnecessary and improper, I’m not a child.” Amora ran her hands over Lark’s womanly curves and groaned as she looked into Lark’s eyes. She watched Lark’s lids grow heavy. The scent of her woman’s arousal thickened the air and she jerked the fabric from Lark’s body to drop it to the floor.

“No, baby, there is nothing child-like about you, but that doesn’t excuse you disobeying. Now, you’re going to hop off the bar and come with me.” Her tone dared Lark to argue further.

Lark’s heart kicked into overdrive, need and a slight hint of fear filled Amora’s nose. Her fangs dropped and her nostrils flared as she helped her mate slip from the bar. Holding tight to Lark’s trembling fingers, she released her to take a seat on a chair in front of the stage.

“Lift your skirt and lay across my lap.”

“Amora!” She smiled as she inhaled the spice of Lark’s excitement. “You can’t mean to spank me.”

“That’s exactly what I mean to do, do as you’re told.” Patience was a hard-earned skill and she used it to await her mate’s submission. Lark wouldn’t tell her no, it was there in the increased heat of her mate’s body and the dilation of pupils that drove out the pretty blue of Lark’s eyes.

“This is most embarrassing.”

“Quit protesting, I know your pussy is already wet for me.” She lowered her voice. “Do I have to tell you again?” The petulant pout of Lark’s sexy lips pulled Amora’s nipples taut and the scent of her arousal mixed with that of her mate’s scent. 

She watched as Lark slowly shifted the pretty pale peach skirt with a predatory stare. It moved upward exposing smooth, lightly tanned calves, cute slightly dimpled knees and she bit her lips at the sight of round, soft thighs. She patted her lap as Lark breathed with quick puffs and the fabric finally bared the generous flare of hips.

“Beautiful.” The gravelly tone was thick with desire as the soft curve of Lark’s stomach came to rest on her lap. The underside of Lark’s plump breasts nudged along her left thigh. “Such a good girl. You’re perfect.” Amora fully exposed the curves of Lark’s ass as she pushed the fabric to her waist.

Her palm moved with tender caresses, smiling as Lark jumped when she neared the pretty, swollen lips of Lark’s pussy. Lifting her hand, hesitating as her mate held her breath and then the palm of her hand connected. Lark squeaked, yet she only had eyes for the sexy bounce of ample curves, she repeated the smack to one cheek and then the other, repeatedly. Amora soothed the reddening, pale skin, as Lark’s cries became moans. The strong scent of her mate’s arousal was thick.

“Did we learn our lesson?” The question slipped from her lips at the same time she cupped Lark’s soaked pussy. “Or do you need another?” She pushed her thumb into the Lark’s clenching heat. Fucking her in shallow thrusts as whimpers and hips arched showing her how much her mate wanted more.

.@TinaDonahue is Muzzling the Beast #RB4U #MFRWauthor

(Book 4 – Taming the Beast Series)
by Tina Donahue


Samhain * Amazon
Overdrive * Amazon UK
Amazon FR * Amazon CA
Google Books * iTunes

When all hell breaks loose, playing fair isn’t an option.

Taming the Beast, Book 4

Removing memories from mortals who stumble into From Crud to Stud, a makeover service for supernatural beings, is a cinch for Constance, a voodoo priestess. Finding her own Mr. Right is another matter.

However, the latest intruder into their business stops Constance dead in her tracks. He’s tall, dark, and deliciously hot. He’s also a New Orleans police detective with questions. And answering them will bring down a plague of exposure, purges, and exorcisms.

Gabe Legrand has come to check out reports of strange activities. But the strangest thing is how Constance’s sexy curves and silky skin have him uncharacteristically panting like a rutting beast. Trouble is, every time his questions probe too deep, his memories go poof, sending him back to square one with his luscious guide.

There’s no denying their aching need crackles like an electrical storm. But Constance has a business to protect, which means keeping Gabe at arm’s length—even as all hell breaks loose.

Warning: Epic whoppers (and we’re not just talking about lies), smokin’ hot sex, frequent brain farts, and two star-crossed lovers willing to do it all again. And again. And again. Yeah, baby!


He stepped toward her. She didn’t give an inch either. They were so close, Constance saw laugh lines at the corners of his beautiful eyes, along with flecks of light brown in his irises. His fragrance surrounded her, making Constance weak, causing her to yearn.

It had been months since she’d been involved with a man, and even then they’d been mainly supernaturals she’d met here. Like mortal guys, most of them were jerks or users, taking what they wanted, leaving her heartbroken and lonely.

Gabe’s heat and big body called to everything female within Constance, especially as his expression grew distracted and then intense, revealing the same carnal hunger she felt. A minute ticked by, followed by another and another.

His breathing picked up. So did hers.

Someone slammed into the wall behind them, grunted loudly, and let out a string of curses, killing the magic.

Gabe looked past her and frowned. “What is going on here? And don’t you dare tell me regular therapy. The business license is for a behavior adjustment and grooming service, whatever that’s supposed to be.”

“We like to think of it as a finishing school for guys.” She smiled indulgently. “So many of you are rough around the edges. Wouldn’t you agree?”

He gave her a cop’s hard stare.

Constance wondered if he liked using his cuffs during bed play. If there was a God and She was female, Gabe did. “We’re simply trying to help guys suppress their uncivilized urges, just like women have always been taught to do.”

He regarded her hand resting on his forearm, her fingers stroking him. His Adam’s apple bobbed with his hard swallow. “That’s not what I’ve heard.”

She went hot, cold, and hot again, wondering what he was getting at. Surely, none of the clients had lodged a complaint with the cops, telling the authorities they were vamps, weres, reapers, or any number of other beings trying to suppress their beasts. Why would any of them expose their true natures to a mortal?

Oh hell. Constance wondered if the police department had a supernatural working undercover, egged on by the Religious Right, who saw conspiracies everywhere, even in Barbie dolls and McDonald’s Happy Meals.

Afraid to know but curious too, she murmured, “What have you heard?”

Gabe wasn’t talking. He took in the sofa and the plants and then finally turned to the cabinet.

Before he could get a good look at the photos, Constance cupped his head and turned his face to hers.
He lifted his eyebrows in obvious surprise but didn’t move away. “What are you doing?”

What she shouldn’t…wanting him. The feel of his tight curls was a major distraction, the same as his rich mouth. She sighed. “Nothing.”

Gabe didn’t argue. He blinked as she zapped his memories of why he’d come here and then looked at her questioningly.

What could she say, sorry? She really was for having played with his mind, but not for touching him.

Thankfully, he wasn’t complaining about her stroking his scalp. After a moment, he grew distracted, as he had earlier, studying her features, becoming lost in them.

She drank his in too, liking his looks, feeling oddly comfortable with him even though they didn’t know each other and never would. A pang of sorrow hit Constance hard, with longing beneath it for a good man, someone she could count on who’d make each day a pleasure.

Wasn’t gonna happen with him. They only had these moments.

“You okay?” she asked.

He stared at her eyes, then her mouth. “Shouldn’t I be?”

As far as his memories were concerned, no. When it came to her touching him, she would have liked to have heard a definite yes. “Absolutely,” she finally said, answering his question. “You’re good…more than…”

She didn’t finish as Gabe edged closer, as though he couldn’t help himself. Well, hell, she couldn’t either, finally acting on pure instinct and bringing his mouth down to hers.

Aw God. His lips were ungodly heated and super soft, his beard-roughened cheeks a wonder against her skin, so virile and welcomed. On an unsteady breath, Constance sagged into him, opening her mouth to his, inviting his tongue inside.

#NewRelease #Giveaway: Beyond Love by J.J. Lore #SciFi #Romance

Welcome to the Book Tour for Beyond Love by JJ Lore. And be sure to read to the bottom for your chance to win a $25 Amazon eGift card from Sensuous Promos!

Every mining outpost needs a sheriff, and Eidan Cozad is just the Eleoni for the job. Newly arrived on planet with his deputy sister in tow, he faces corruption, hostility, and nearly continuous rain. A chance encounter with a defiant human postal worker adds yet one more complication to his mission.

Neat and tidy Teah Ruida thought when the Eleoni arrived and enforced some law and order, it would be easier for her to deliver her packages. Instead, she’s somehow become embroiled in spat after spat with the handsome and assertive Sheriff himself. Even though she doesn’t want to think about it, she’s become madly curious if the rumor about the strange markings Eleoni hide under their clothes is true.

Tension between Eidan and Teah ignites into passion that defies the barriers between their races. When there’s a violent ambush initiated by the settlement’s criminal organization, the future of their love hangs in the balance.



Eidan had been enjoying himself immensely. Watching Teah’s outrage grow as her eyes sparkled and her cheeks flushed, had made him forget all about the bruises forming on his torso and the chill rain surrounding them with grim humidity. He hadn’t teased a pretty woman in far too long.
He’d taken advantage of her distraction and moved close to her, his body urging him to stay near, be as tactile as possible because everywhere he touched made him want more. She didn’t seem to be searching for an escape as she had upon their earlier acquaintance, but that might be because she was so aggravated. She frowned, and he braced himself for a snappy comeback or perhaps even a push to move him out of her orbit. Instead, she reached out a hand and grasped his shoulder all while she rose up on her toes and pressed her mouth to his.
Shocked at her actions, he failed to react for a few beats. Such tender lips, so sweet. The unexpected caress had him reeling, so when she drew back, still frowning, he took only a moment to decide return the gesture, and he wouldn’t be nearly so chaste about it.
“See, I can be—”
He stopped her protest with a kiss of his own, circling one of his hands around the back of her head as he allowed the other to drop to her waist as he took over. With only a few nudging encouragements, she’d opened her mouth to him, allowing him to taste her, tease with his tongue in a new way as she quivered in his grasp. With a pent-up little moan she leaned against him, her breasts firmly pressed to his chest. His cock, which had been on alert since he’d first touched Teah, now sprang to near-painful attention.
Teah kissed him back, her little nips and licks the only encouragement he needed to lift her up and press her against the wall of the building sheltering them. He grabbed at her thighs and pulled them around his waist even as he ground his hips into her, his thickened cock sliding along the plump flesh between her legs. All the residual adrenaline from the fight ignited in his veins as he allowed sexual energy build between them. He wished he’d removed his damned gloves so he could finally grasp some of her curves.
She made a soft sound deep in her throat and clutched harder at his shoulders, her tongue teasing his then retreating to the safety of her mouth. He followed with a foray of his own and her whole body softened against his as he thrust his tongue inside her. A sudden flash of awareness filled him: Teah would melt against him when he penetrated her. She was incredibly responsive and he was certain when they finally had intercourse, it would be a fulfilling encounter. The way she suddenly clamped her thighs around him and rocked her pussy against the ridge of his cock only confirmed it.
The sudden chirrup of his alarm startled him, and he pulled away from Teah’s succulent lips, the need to return to duty overriding arousal in a painful snap. Teah’s head fell back and she blinked groggily as he answered his comm link summons. An emergency required as much of his attention he could provide even though he was in the middle of foreplay.
“Hey, Eidan! How’d the fight go?” His sister’s voice rang out in a cheerful query, and he winced. No emergency, just inopportune curiosity.
“I won.”
At his brief answer, Teah focused on him, then glanced down their tightly entwined bodies. A deeper blush rose up her cheeks, and she pressed at his forearms and wriggled her legs. Her movements were quite stimulating—everything about her was stimulating in fact, but it was clear she was trying to escape him yet again. In response, he tightened his grip on her full buttocks and she let out a tiny squeal.
“What was that? Are you still at the location? Do you need me to escort you out?”
“No.” He included Teah in that denial. She was staying exactly where she was. The woman in his arms sucked in a breath and pushed at his chest. He flinched because she happened to compress a new bruise and he almost lost his grip on her. She took advantage of his divided attention and kicked her legs. His cock appreciated the rhythmic motion.
“Let me down,” she whispered with a scowl.
“Who was that?” Brida asked quickly. No longer willing to put up with eavesdropping, Eidan reluctantly removed one of his hands from the lush curve of Teah’s ass and hit private link on the comm. Now his sister wouldn’t be able to hear anything but his voice. As soon as he let go of her, Teah struggled in earnest and with an agile twist she was free, ducking under his arm as he reached for her.
“Was there anything else?” he asked as he followed Teah along the walk. She picked up the pace, and he allowed himself the luxury of watching her hips sway.
“Not really. Just checking in to make sure my little brother hadn’t gotten his skull cracked open by some smelly human savage.”
At these words, Teah spun around suddenly, a thunderous frown on her face. “Smelly human savage?”
“You’re not a savage,” Eidan tried to reassure her, though the idea of Teah sinking her teeth into him as they engaged in a naked tussle definitely brought out the primal in him.
“Who’s a savage?” Brida asked.
“No one’s a savage.” He nearly shouted it, frustrated that Teah wasn’t touching him and that his sister had used such a derogatory term so openly. Yes, they had joked about how primitive human society seemed, but it wouldn’t do to entertain even superficial judgments now that they were here among their new constituents. “Brida, I’m signing off.”
With a jerk of his hands he shut off the link and faced his peeved human.
“Don’t even think it.” Teah warned him off with a raised hand. She shuffled backward and eyed him like he was armed and dangerous.
“You don’t know what I’m thinking.” Eidan knew it was a lie, the bulge in his trousers clearly advertising what he was after.
