Blurb:

In the lush heart of Kentucky, horse racing is king, and the Hamilton family is royalty, born to produce champions. Maybe that’s because they understand wildness better than most…

Charming, reckless, and restless, youngest brother Alex Hamilton has a reputation for sweet talking his way into any woman’s arms—and failing at anything to do with the family business. So when he commits to managing their new breeding operation, it’s under one condition: he’ll focus on work and nothing else—no distractions, no fun…no women. But just when Alex has promised to keep his hands to himself, sweet, sexy Kate Littleton gallops away with his heart…

Kate knows Alex isn’t the long-term type—he proved that in a lot of delicious ways when they first met more than a year ago. But seeing him blazing with new dedication to Hamilton Stables, she can’t deny that he’s miles ahead of any other man who interests her. The attraction between them is electric right out of the gate, but it will take an unexpected loss to put them back in the race and headed for a passionate future together…

*This is the 2nd book in the Hamilton Stables series, but each book is a standalone novel.Excerpt:

“Kate, honey, you’re too pretty for a mailman. You should date a fireman.” Again with the firemen. Then Annie’s eyes sparkled and she snapped her fingers, as though she’d figured it all out and could now properly wed Kate off. “I’ve got it! What about one of Trip’s brothers?”

“Yes, what about one of Trip’s brothers?” a rough voice said from behind Kate, and she knew without turning who had stepped into their conversation.

Annie held her hands out to Alex. “Exactly. Look at him. Cute as a button, and I bet he knows what to do with his parts.”

Dear God, forget my prayer to live to seventy. I’d like to cash in my card right now.
“Indeed I do, Ms. Annie,” he said with a wink, flirting with the woman. He had on rugged jeans and a T-shirt, flip-flops on his feet, his hair as messy as ever.

Annie-Jean smiled, because Alex had that effect on a woman. “You are trouble on toast, Alex Hamilton. You know that?”

“It’s a tough job, Ms. Annie, but someone’s gotta do it.” He cocked his head at Kate, that smile of his taking shape. “So are you going to answer Annie’s question or are you going to leave a man hanging? Why not get with one of Trip’s brothers? I happen to know of one who wouldn’t mind splitting his time with you.” He looked her up and down, and Kate rolled her eyes.

“Does that crap work on anybody?”

“It works on everybody, and by the look of that flush on your neck, I’d say it’s working on you, too.”

All hell is breaking loose in the edge-of-your-seat follow-up

to Havoc and Perdition fromNew York Times bestselling author Ann

Aguirre…

The prison ship Perdition has become a post-battle charnel house with only a handful of Dred’s soldiers

still standing and now being hunted by Silence’s trained tongueless assassins. Forging an uneasy alliance

with mercenary commander Vost—who is their only chance at escape—the Dread Queen will do

whatever it takes to end her life sentence on Perdition and keep the survivors alive long enough to

cobble together a transport capable of getting them off station.

If Dred and her crew can win the deadly game of cat and mouse, the payoff is not only life but

freedom—a prize sweeter than their wildest dreams. Yet the sadistic Silence would rather destroy

Perdition than let a single soul slip from her grasp…

We’re celebrating the RELEASE of
The Violet Hour
Brynn Chapman

Check out the book and author info, exclusive excerpt, and enter the giveaway below…

The Violet Hour
Brynn Chapman
YA Romantic Historical Fantasy
ebook, 209 Pages

Secrets.

Allegra Teagarden, a musical prodigy, flees her father’s dominance and abuse while touring in pre-civil war Charleston, South Carolina. Plagued by depression over her mother’s suicide during their previous visit, she escapes in an effort to piece together the details behind her mother’s mysterious demise.

Secrets.

Down to her final coin, Allegra happens on Charleston’s Fancy, the first southern amusement park, which is searching for musicians for its orchestra. At first, the park seems her salvation; but she quickly realizes she has traded the dominance of her father, for the even more terrifying madness of the owner, Silas.

And more secrets.

Allegra meets the dashing Brighton LeFroy, Fancy’s engineer and pyrotechnics master. His shabby clothing cannot conceal the brilliant mind beneath. The musician’s whisper he is a witch, is obsessed with storms, and is rumored…to fly. And despite the danger, despite her own misgivings, Allegra is inexplicable drawn to him.

She ventures to his reclusive home on Fire Isle during a thunderstorm and together they seek to unravel an ancient mystery.

Exclusive Excerpt

LeFroy stares out the window, his brow creased in thought. He remains statue-still, as he has for the past quarter hour, oblivious to the late afternoon sun that bathes his face in a beautiful golden-amber.

I stare intently, reveling in the rare opportunity to drink in his features.

His dark curly hair is in need of a cutting and his thin lips turn down as he absently bites the side of his nail, lost to himself. He is not a classic beauty—but the singularity of his face demand’s attention.

Not all women would swoon for him. But something about him draws me…makes him utterly irresistible.

The warmth on my chest again. Almost hot this time. I struggle not to look down my dress to examine what I imagined to be an inevitable rash, but all I see is the Magnolia pattern—the patch on my dress, lovingly sewn by my mother’s hand.

I banish the thought. I shall not think on her now.

Brighton clears his throat, driving away my mother’s ghost and I struggle for words. When he regards me, my tongue seems to shrivel in my mouth.

It is his eyes. They…speak. Sometimes whisper, sometimes shout.

They now squint, as whatever vexing scenario playing on his mind continues to dominate his demeanor. He doesn’t move. Doesn’t speak.
