I am the thing that goes bump in the night. I am a liar, a protector...a killer...I am Noah Blake.
There is only one light in my darkness, one bright ray in the storm of my life. Lucia DeMarco. And I’ll do anything for her. Anything except show her who I really am...an assassin. Well, former assassin. I don’t really do that anymore...usually.
It would be easier if she didn’t call me names. Asshole, control freak…shameless. It would also be easier if she didn’t look at me with those trusting gray eyes. If I didn’t dream about the perfect curve of her — never mind all that. The point is she’s digging into my world, my secrets, and it’s going to get her killed.
But first, we have another more immediate concern. Lucia is going on a date—With someone else...
NYT & USA Today Bestselling author M. Malone lives in the Washington, DC metro area with her three favorite guys, her husband and their two sons. She holds a Master's degree in Business from a prestigious college that would no doubt be scandalized at how she's using her expensive education.
Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella "Teasing Trent", her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.

USA Today Best Seller, Nana Malone's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she "borrowed" from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, in the meantime Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

Living in Nashville with his daughter, Katelyn, single dad Derrick Collins’s main goal is to provide a good life for his daughter. With no social life to speak of, he knows it’s time for a change. He just needs to find the perfect woman who will complete his happy family. The problem is he’s already met her and let her go.
Mary Jane Evans’s life took a path she could only dream of. Though leaving her home in Nashville meant saying goodbye to childhood friends, family, and the first man she ever loved. Now she has to choose if she will return or continue her new journey.
With a decision to make, is it possible for two lost loves to find their way back to each other or are there too many curves in the road?
Most people fall in love several times over a lifetime, but one always sticks out more than others, whether you end up with them or they are the one who got away.
When I was five, I thought I was in love with my best friend, Jimmy, who lived next door. That changed when he fed my favorite Barbie doll to the dog, breaking my heart. When I was ten, I fell for my schoolmate Robbie when he helped me up after someone pushed me into the mud. My heart later shattered when my dad told me we were moving to the big city of Nashville from our small backwoods town in Kentucky, and I had to say goodbye to him. At fifteen, I fell for Marcus Jacobs, the smartest guy in school. He was our valedictorian, and I never told him how I felt. He “came out of the closet” after high school. And then I turned twenty-one and met Derrick Collins.
Derrick was the guy who made me realize that I’d never known love before I met him. Reading about toes-tingling, heart-stopping kisses, and romantic gestures, I always questioned whether such things existed. My lifelong question was answered the first time we kissed, and I felt it course through my body from my lips straight to my toes with electric pulses racing everywhere in between.
Growing up, I always had an issue with weight and never felt comfortable with the opposite sex. Puberty hit and my waistline expanded more than my breasts. Luckily, I had a growth spurt around sixteen. I was taller than average, five eight to be exact, with blonde hair and light green eyes, with that I was happy. My pants size was a different story. My hips were curvy, and my breasts caught up to them, although they didn’t point forward as much as my hips pointed outward.
With friends like mine who built my confidence every day, I thought I knew what it meant to feel beautiful. It wasn’t until the day I felt Derrick’s undeniable passion for me that I truly felt like the goddess Cameron always tried to convince me I was. I’d tried every diet known to man to be skinny; it just was not in the cards for me, and I’d come to terms with that fact. My body may not have been perfect, but I ate right, and I wasn’t lazy. It was just my luck I had a crappy metabolism that allowed me to maintain a softer, slightly rounder stomach. Did it frustrate me? Yes. I would’ve loved to be one of those women who ate anything they wanted and never gained a pound. However, life didn’t deal me that hand, and I’d become content with myself.
It’s true that having a boyfriend wasn’t the most important thing in life, but it sure was nice. I loved my time with Derrick. I didn’t need him to make me happy; I wanted it. Derrick made the sky bluer, chocolate taste sweeter, and the sun shine brighter, at least it seemed that way with him in my life. Prince Charming had nothing on this man. At times I became discouraged, but Derrick was there to make me laugh. Other than Cameron, no other man had told me I was beautiful in a way that made me believe it. He was practically perfect in every way, like a male version of Mary Poppins. Wow, that wasn’t sexy I guess, but if Derrick was one thing for sure, it was sexy.

As a provocative series of paranormal temptation begins, a vampire king seduces the supernaturally gifted man hunting him. But when the stakes are literally life or death, their
struggle for control is no game.
Benjamin Fuller is a hunter, born and bred. Blinded as a child by the vampire who slaughtered his family, he’s blessed with a second sight that allows him to catch and kill his quarry. What his gift can’t help him see coming is his fierce, almost carnal attraction to the mystery man who claims to be a fellow hunter and whose touch triggers both lust and revulsion. When he gains the upper hand, Benjamin vows to bring his enemy to his knees. After many years spent in exile, the only one who can help restore Tzadkiel Dragoumanos to his rightful place as War King is a blind hunter with golden curls, a lithe dancer’s physique, and distinctive facial scars—scars Tzadkiel gave him two decades ago. The mere scent of Benjamin Fuller provokes an unwelcome rush of insatiable desire. Yet to win an all-out supernatural war, Tzadkiel must resist the ravenous hunger to possess his prey—for now.

Benjamin jerked back at the contact with Tzadkiel’s mouth and attempted to shove the vampire away. Tzadkiel, however, was quicker. Hand gripping Benjamin’s nape in a way that spoke of centuries—perhaps millennia—of practice, Tzadkiel held him immobile. The royal purple aura flashed and brightened with something Benjamin’s hunter-senses recognized as desire. Flesh, warm and supple, not marble hard and cold, met Benjamin’s lips.
The vampire kisses like a human.
Benjamin’s first thought struck him as absurd, and then he couldn’t think at all. Lips that had begged him for water, for silence, for life, now demanded passion. Sparks of white and deep mauve obscured the subterranean world around him, focusing his attention on the flash-bang of his arousal. As before, contact with the vampire blew him apart from the inside. Adrenaline, fear, animal instinct, all combined to light his nerves with an awareness he’d only experienced when fighting the heinous creatures. In short, he felt alive.
Lungs burning, Benjamin gasped when Tzadkiel let him up for air, then pulled his nemesis in for more. Drunk with lust, he barely registered voices in the tunnel, or the polite cough and tap on his shoulder. Taste. He needed to taste. Plunging his tongue into a rough and tumble battle with Tzadkiel’s, he tasted his own blood on the vampire’s tongue. Tzadkiel growled and clamped his hand more insistently on Benjamin’s nape, forcing him to open his mouth until every spare inch of his world was filled with a different kind of mayhem. Tinged with smoke and salt and a warm earthy essence, Tzadkiel tasted of nightmares laced with forbidden desire. A one-hit addict, Benjamin couldn’t get enough of the resulting rush.
The cough and tap came again, more insistent this time. Benjamin shrugged it off, refusing to rouse from this wonderful dream, and attempted to fall back to sleep—to fall back into to Tzadkiel’s embrace.

Scarred by Chelsea Camaron
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Scarred is the third installment of the Ruthless Rebels MC series. Two of my favorite authors joined together to give us an outstanding series. Scarred is no different. I really enjoyed it.
This is Whitton (Skinny) and Roe's book. High school sweethearts these two have loved each other forever. When Whitton took off on her after she completely gave herself to him, hurt. Ten years later and he's still all she can think about. For Skinny it's the same. He hated leaving her but his brother needed him. He's never forgotten her and she's the only woman he has or ever will love.
When Whitton had to return back to where he grew up he knew there was a chance he would run into her. He's kept tabs on her all theses years. But seeing her in person he knows he will never be able to leave her again.
Scarred is exciting, dangerous and kinda heartbreaking. The way these two have always loved each other was refreshing. The characters are great and I loved their story. Can't wait to see what these ladies bring us next.

I honestly didn't know what to expect when I started this. And truthfully the beginning was a little slow for me. But once I got really into it I was like a kid in a candy store. More! I can't get enough! These characters are all broken. Each one of them have a heartbreaking story that will have you falling in love with them. This book definitely isn't for everyone. If your easily offended or not interested in reading about multiple people "together " then this isn't for you. I found it refreshing and sexy, I'm desperately wanting the next book!

Publication Date: September 3, 2014
AVAILABLE NOW: http://mybook.to/NightWalker
Raised by her aunt as a baby after the death of her father and her mother being institutionalized, Alexandra "Alex" Hensley grew up determined to put the past behind her. As such, her boyfriend Matt and best friend Lauren, became her new family, and her love for them was unquestioned.
On a night out, the trio meet Dante Delavega, owner of the hottest nightclub in Sydney. Despite Lauren's advances, Delavega hovers over Alex like a mysterious, protective shadow, all but completely ignoring her friends. His actions flatter Alex but confuse and anger both Lauren and Matt.
To prevent losing the two people that have been there for her for as long as she can remember, Alex feels she owes it to them and herself to find out what it is about Dante that is pulling them apart. But once she delves into his world, Alex cannot go back. For Dante holds the key to the truth about her family. When Alex discovers what really happened to her parents, she unlocks an Australian secret kept hidden since the First Fleet.
But no truth comes without a cost. A secret of this magnitude has remained due to one simple rule: they join us or die. Suddenly, Matt and Lauren disappear and Dante's greatest battle begins. Can he truly save Alex? Or will Alex have to make the ultimate sacrifice, for those she loves?
How About A Taste of Speerverse?
Alice Ballinger of 2OCCReviews had an opportunity to sit down and chat with Aaron and one of the stars of Night Walker Last May. We thought a few of her questions might help you get a taste of what awaits you in Speerverse.
(I) = Interviewer (D) = Dante (AS) = Aaron
First Up... Dante was in the hot seat:
(I): What is your preferred type in a woman? Do you prefer a woman in heels? Dressed up or casual? Make-up/natural? Long hair or short? Perfume or none? Assertive/Submissive?
(D): It is a cliché, but I truly do not care what modern society's standards are for attractiveness. A woman is a woman. They are all different. Some feel the need for heavy make up, some light or none. Some pay attention to fashion trends, others don't care. Some enjoy BDSM style sex, others dabble, some would never go near it. My perfect woman, is and always has been herself. Do what you want, be and say what you want. But do it for you. Not me or anyone else. Alex is kind, and is so not for the benefit of anyone else, it's just who she is. My perfect woman is assertive and submissive. Whichever is truly herself.
(I): Are you ever worried that Aaron will get himself into trouble by delving into your world? Have you taken precautions to prevent this?
(D): No. As far as everyone is concerned, this is only a story. Not real life. That's the best way for it to be. As long as they think this is purely fiction, as long as you believe this is him answering these questions, the only thing Aaron has to worry about is bad reviews.
(I): What is your ideal perfect date?
(D): A walk along Sydney harbour, her with a bottle of wine in one hand, my hand in the other. We tell stupid, made up stories, and laugh at the ridiculous. We end the night slowly kissing under the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the stars.
(AS): THAT'S where you end the night?
(D): A great date doesn't have to mean ending up having sex.
(AS): But the BEST do though!
(D): Well...I'll give you that. Therefore that wouldn't be where we would end the night.
(AS): YAS! You sexy beast.
Next it was time for the Man Himself :
(I): Why did you decide to write a book?
(AS): Hello! Because I lurve to write! That and I never had the voice to sing nor the looks to act.
(I): Do you relate to any of your characters?
(AS): All of them in some way. Even the bad guys. We all have evil in us, there is no doubt, but it is the choice to do right, for no reward that separates good people and bad.
