*Cover Reveal:Face-Off At The Altar by Toni Aleo*

 

AP new - buy the book.jpg
Coming December 29th
Markus Reeves is sucking. Big-time. Toiling away on a minor-league hockey team hundreds of miles away from home, he’s watching his dreams of an NHL career fade away. Add in the lingering guilt he has over the dramatic demise of his relationship with college girlfriend, Mekena, and he’s a mess on and off the ice.
But the family of his heart, the Sinclairs, won’t let Markus suffer any longer. When he arrives himself back in Nashville for a trial run on the Assassins, it feels like his life may be making a turn for the better. If only he could get Mekena to forgive him…
Mekena Preston has been hurting since fleeing Nashville following the horror of Markus’s betrayal with her sister. Now a professional photographer, Mekena finds herself in the same place at the same time with Markus to celebrate Lucy and Benji Paxton’s wedding. Neither of them has been able to move on—and they’re starting to wonder if they really want to.
They’re headed for a face-off at the altar unless they can confront their past and unearth the truth about what really happened on that fateful night.

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?

BLURB

Entertainment journalist, Ryan Pierce, meets the infamous bad-boy rocker, Dagger Drummond, and walks away with a great interview and a scandalous news bit that has the potential to turn the music world on its ear. Exposing the story would boost Ryan’s career, but it would also come with the risk of ruining Dagger’s privacy – and possibly his Rock God status.

The unlikely friendship that develops between Dagger and Ryan brings Ryan to question more than just his journalistic oath to report the news. It also forces him to take a look at himself and newly discovered feelings – feelings that make Ryan blind to the risk of becoming front page news himself.

Will Ryan find the courage to make a life decision to give himself true happiness with Dagger or take the path that would likely lead to heartbreak and destroy his career forever?

“Daddy, what is a white lie?”

My father put down his spoon and looked at me thoughtfully.“Why’d you ask, Princess?”

“I heard you talking yesterday and you said ‘one more white lie isn’t going to make a difference.’ I just wanted to know what you meant.”

“You heard that, huh?” My father tilted his head to study me. “It’s just a small lie you tell when you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. It’s nothing for you to worry about.”

My eyes grew wide. “Like when you told Aunt Rena her pie was good even though it tasted icky?”

“Exactly.” My father smiled.

“Or when you told that man last week that you hadn’t seen Uncle Bruno and you had?”

The smile fell from his face and he straightened in his chair. “No, Princess, that was a different kind of lie.”

Scrunching up my nose, I asked, “What kind of lie was that?”

My father swallowed hard before replying. “That’s the kind of lie where you have to have a real good memory.”

Clarissa Solano could never have known, as an inquisitive child, how significant those words would become. That she would spend years twisting the truth: hoping and praying that she would not contradict herself and expose the secrets she keeps locked inside.

Most of the people in her life don’t really know her at all. She forces them to swallow her lies, but she is the one who feels the bitter aftertaste of deception.

When Lane Hunter sweeps into her life, she finds herself opening up in ways she never thought possible. He sees beyond the facade to the woman beneath and knows instantly that he wants her. However, all is not as it seems and when secrets and lies are exposed, it threatens to destroy them all.

Title: Taken by the Hitman A Bad Boy Mafia Romance

Author: Alexis Abbott

Release Date: December 4, 2016

jompsynopsis

Out of the darkest evil will come the strongest love.

The Bratva is changing, but whenever there’s change, there’s resistance. I have to prove I’m one of them or else I’m dead.

I wasn’t prepared for what they wanted. They gave me a young and beautiful woman, to defile and break.

With a gun to my head, it’s not like I have a choice.

I’ve never met a woman like her. Damaged, just like me, but with a clever mind that she knows is a dangerous weapon, and curves for days. Every second I spend with her, it becomes less about business, less about the darkness I’m trying to leave behind, and more her. About us, against the world.

We’re going to rise above the shadows the Bratva have cast on us.

They made a dangerous mistake. They bound her to me in a way that those monsters could never comprehend. She has a part of my soul now, and I have a part of hers. Soulmates, in a way.

I’m a bad man, but I’m going to do right by her. I’m going to prove to her that even in the darkness, there’s always something worth fighting for.

I’ll kill them all for her. When it’s all over, and she doesn’t need me for revenge anymore, we won’t be able to walk away from our love. She’s been taken by the hitman, and I won’t let her go.

A full length Standalone Romantic Suspense novel. No Cliffhangers. Safe from cheating. Dark romance. Explicit language & swearing.

*Always Hope by Heidi Renee Mason*

 HALF-PRICE SALE 

Title: Always Hope
Genre: Chick-lit Romance
Release Date: November 26, 2016
Designer: Claire Smith
 Add to Goodreads
Ten years ago Hope West left her hometown, attempting to outrun dissolved relationships, family secrets, and the broken heart caused by her first love, Samuel Mooney. When unforeseen circumstances force her to return, she realizes that her time away has done little to heal the pain of the past.
Never intending to stay in Woodridge, Hope slowly begins to understand that remaining there may be the only way to secure her future. Blossoming friendships and the discovery of a box of letters revealing the identity of her mysterious father all point Hope in the direction of reconciliation.
As she begins to mend her broken bonds, Sam reenters her life in an unexpected way, forcing her to decide if true love can really stand the test of time.
Looking out the window of the airplane, I tried to ignore the knots in my stomach. Dark, dismal skies and swirling gray clouds peered back at me, a reflection of my mood. I shifted restlessly in my seat, tapping my fingernails nervously on the tray table in front of me. The walls were closing in on me, and my breathing came fast and short. All I could think about was getting off the plane. The flight attendant, who seemed to sense my agitation, quietly informed me we would begin our descent into Seattle soon.
I nodded slowly at her without making eye contact. It was embarrassing that my inability to cope was so obvious. “You can do this, Hope,” I said to myself, taking several deep breaths and trying in vain to settle my nerves. Every muscle in my body was tight, making me a giant, clenched ball of stress that refused to uncoil. I rotated my neck and tried to relax my shoulders. A dull, throbbing ache radiated across my forehead.
The events of my shattered life paraded relentlessly through my head, invading my peace of mind while I attempted to block it all out. I would not think about any of it right now; I couldn’t. But try as I might, I couldn’t fight off the memories that clawed at my brain like a vulture decimating a carcass.
I pictured my husband on that last day; I remembered the shocked look on his face as I ordered him out of our apartment. It seemed like eons had passed instead of a mere two weeks. His words pounded in my head. It was like a bad movie that played over and over in my mind.

Synopsis

Deprival haunted her…

Regret troubled her…

Silence left her detached…

A life in the service of others is both penance and a blessing. She soothes her personal hell by pulling victims from theirs, helping them on their path to survival; never finding her own.

When a crippling blow finally evaporates her last hope, the temptation to give up is strong. Still, she can’t find it in her to turn her back on those who need her: the innocent, whose rescue is her perpetual goal.

He was blind, but now he sees how his family has sifted through his fingers. The reality hits hard when his son becomes a stranger, slipping deeper into transgression. Concern has him call on the one person he fears will see his own failures all too clearly. A woman he’s kept his distance from for his own protection.

What appeared to be an incompatible pairing, turns out the unyielding bond needed to heal them all.

Excerpt

“What are you thinking?” he mumbles, his large frame still pinning me to the mattress, his face buried in the spot low on my neck he seems to like.
“That I feel safe,” I tell him, surprised at my own conclusion. “In more than one way, actually,” I add. “I’m not sure how long it’s been, maybe I never had it, but I’m not scared of the future anymore. Or of letting myself feel.” Dino pushes up on his elbows, all his attention focused on my face as I smile. “I admit that for a while last night I wasn’t so sure, but that disappeared when I saw you waiting for me. I’m grateful for your words but I didn’t need them. Trust is not something I easily give, but I trust you.”
“Thank you.” His lips move against mine before he lifts away. “I was an ass and it had little to do with you. It was the realization I was failing as a parent.” A sharp shake of his head cuts off the protest that was forming on my lips. “I wasn’t watching Gina. I was too preoccupied with other things to notice she was slipping. Last night was a knee jerk reaction. I have to get used to sharing things again. I haven’t been able to do that in a long time. It was always just easier to deal with things myself. I should’ve talked to you.”
“Stop.” I cover his mouth with my fingers. “Enough of the self-recriminations. Lord knows we both have a knack for those. I still struggle with the what-ifs. I don’t want to do that with you. Don’t want to have regrets of any kind, and the only way to do that is to be completely open. Give you all of me, warts and all. All I want in return is to trust that when we hit the inevitable bumps in the road, you’ll have my back, just as I have yours.”
Dino’s beautiful brown eyes turn liquid as I watch him swallow hard. “Always.” His gruff voice cracks on the single word as he rolls off me and swings his legs over the side of the bed. I watch the muscles in his ass flex as he makes his way to the bathroom. Nice view. One I wouldn’t mind enjoying the rest of my life.
My thoughts grind to a halt. Am I really considering that? The rest of my life?

Defying the restrictions of society, Emma Johnston plans to become a teacher and help broaden the lives of young women. Society, her father, and even her own heart betray her and leave her longing for a different life entirely.

After having run up considerable debt, Emma’s father needs her inheritance from her maternal grandfather and he has a plan that seems guaranteed to get it for him, until Roger Starnes steps in and rescues her.

Together, the headstrong heiress and her protector scheme to stop her father and allow her to live her life, on her terms.

“Good afternoon, Miss Johnston, Miss Duncan.” Emma turned and choked on a gasp of surprise. It was the young man she had seen the day before, following her about town and again this morning at church. Emma and Patti were both taken with the deep, intense blue color of his eyes. They were intelligent eyes, holding a sparkle of mischief and laughter in them. A lock of black hair had fallen over his forehead, giving him a somewhat dashing air. Many men strove for the look and failed to attain it, but this man wore it as if it were as natural to him as breathing.
“I fear you have me at a disadvantage, sir,” she said, not certain if she was more alarmed by his knowing her name or the thrill of excitement that ran through her as he introduced himself.
“Please forgive me. I know it is rather bold of me to introduce myself this way. My name is Roger Starnes. I am an associate of your grandfather. He has been kind enough to point you out to me on any number of occasions, but has not had the opportunity to introduce us as yet.”
“Oh,” was all Emma could think to say, her breathing unsteady.
“I must say, this is rather bold and unusual behavior, Mr. Starnes. Most gentlemen would wait to be introduced,” Patti reprimanded him gently.
“Yes, but the opportunity presented itself, and I was loath to waste it.” He smiled charmingly at Emma and Patti.
“Would you care to take another stroll around the lake? I will understand if you are quite tired of the sight, considering how many times you have been around it today.”
“Keeping tabs, are you?” Patti was protective. Emma let her talk for a moment, trying to regain control of herself.
“It’s hard not to keep track of the most beautiful girl here,” Roger replied.
