Release date: February 21, 2017

Synopsis

Christabel Orlova remembers nothing before the night she woke in a Turkish bazaar with two passports, two governments on her tail, and no memory of her shadowy past. Armed only with keen wits, survival instincts and mad skills in the research lab, Christa has three goals. Stay alive. Stay one step ahead of her hunters. And find a cure for the Ebola bioweapon whose secret is locked in her brainbox—before it wipes out the human race. Gypsy, loner and wild child, her first rule of survival is never to trust.

Ex-Russian fighter pilot Max Vasylko is a gun-for-hire smuggler who’ll fly contraband cargo anywhere in the world, no questions asked. But he can’t fly far enough to forget the wife and daughter who died in an Ebola outbreak. When a bioweapon from a rogue U.S. program is to blame, Max’s mission turns personal. Find the scientist responsible for designing the super virus—and make her pay. The last villain he expects is Christa: a smart, sexy, scrappy survivor in hiking boots who’s lost her own brother to the virus.

Now Max is flying high above the African jungle with enemy agents in his six and a sweet redhead he’ll risk his backside to protect. Christa’s tempted to trust this hot-as-hell jet jockey with his wildcat courage and Mafia past. But the vaccine isn’t the only secret locked in her head. To uncover the truth, Max and Christa must win their toughest battle yet. The battle of hearts between them. Continue reading

Genre: NA Contemporary Fiction
Release Date: December 18th 2015

Synopsis

Leaving home for the first time to attend college is stressful enough. But when the roommate lottery of Paradise Valley University strikes, it produces couples who have absolutely nothing in common; causing personality clashes which takes the stress to a whole new level. Dismay hits Sidra Howard, the prim and proper princess, when she contemplates spending an entire semester with Chasity Parker, the troubled beauty with a sharp tongue and even sharper claws. Malajia Simmons, a boy crazed, attention seeking diva, is no happier. Not only does she get stuck with the upper bunk bed, she has to share a triple room with Alexandra Chisolm, a nosey and overbearing, self proclaimed “know-it-all”. But even the meddling Alexandra isn’t as bad as Emily Harris, the shy, mommy’s girl with a non-existent backbone.

Coming to college to escape her home life, Chasity hopes to get through the semester without any problems. Her hopes are tainted once she begins to have to resist the advances of a determined football star, on top of dealing with family drama which seems to have followed her. Alexandra’s need to fix everyone’s problems not only rubs her roommates the wrong way, it also causes her to fall blind to the problems brewing with the boyfriend that she left behind. Eventually she’ll be forced to face the issues head on. Emily’s refusal to come out of her shell is too much to handle for party girl Malajia, whose main purpose is to have fun and be seen. The same doesn’t apply to Sidra, who’s more concerned with trying to keep her over-the-top stress level under control.

These five young women try to handle family drama, pressure, and conflicts; all while trying to maintain their grades. They quickly learn that college life isn’t what they expected and must adapt to their new environment if they ever hope to make it through their first semester.

Release date: February 7, 2017

Synopsis

It really sucks to be in love with someone who sees you as nothing more than a friend.  Darcy Owens knows this from personal experience. From the moment she met Sean McKenna as a wary ten-year-old, he’s owned her heart. So when he asks for her help with an important construction project, she can’t say no.

Building a boutique hotel on Boston’s waterfront is a career-making opportunity, and Sean needs Darcy’s interior design expertise. She’s incredibly talented, and there is no one he trusts more.

Synopsis:

Understudies never get to perform . . . which is why being Juliet’s understudy in the school’s yearly “Evening with Shakespeare” is the perfect role for Emily. She can earn some much-needed extra credit while pursuing her main goal of spending time with Wes, aka Romeo, aka the hottest, nicest guy in school (in her completely unbiased opinion). And she meant to learn her lines, really, it’s just:
a) Shakespeare is HARD,
b) Amanda, aka the “real” Juliet, makes her run errands instead of lines, and
c) there’s no point because Amanda would never miss the chance to be the star of the show.

Then, Amanda ends up in the hospital and Emily, as the (completely unprepared!) understudy, has to star opposite the guy of her dreams. Oops? Continue reading

Hatred and insanity mingle together in this disgusting specimen of a human being that stands before me. I don’t know how I’ve wronged him or why I deserve this fate.

Every attempt to save me has failed. I’m left staring my demons in the face, alone. The man glaring back at me is made of nightmares and malice. For all I’ve lost and all I’ve suffered, for every person who came into my life only get ripped away, and most of all for me–I won’t walk away. Not this time. I’ve passed the point of no return. There is no tomorrow. Come sunrise, only one of us will survive. Continue reading

Kailee Reese Samuels Shares Juliet

The Initiation Juliet iconA young woman’s devastating reality ends up with her uncovering a world she never knew existed. While the submissive school poses as a backdrop, Juliet is a coming-of-age story. New adult elements of romance and suspense with an erotic BDSM flair set the stage for Iris Kettles to have the journey of a lifetime.

Wanting the primary focus to be the growth arch through the eyes of twenty-somethings, I built the Juliet world and cast to allow transparent relationships that ring true. I wanted to examine that phase where you don’t know who are or even really what you want.

Starting off as friends, Sal and Iris quickly find attraction in each other’s differences, but those different levels in experience and maturity unravel, triggering a chain of events. At very different points in their lives, they soon understand wanting one another does not guarantee survival of the relationship as they each need to mature.

Sal and Iris fight not only to thrive together but to survive those psychological and emotional challenges of a D/s relationship. The changes their love endures puts their romance in the spotlight beyond the collar.

What ensues is a roller coaster of a ride, filled with highs and lows as Sal and Iris navigate their way through the rough terrain of each other’s mental landscape. Examining their perceptions and misunderstandings helps to paint the picture of what it means to choose to be present and aware in finding true love.

Juliet is the beginning of an epic love story and the journey two people go through to find their truth in one another. Relationships are not always simply tied up with a bow; sometimes, they are quilted, piece by piece, forming the love affair to remember.

A love story doesn’t always go the way it should. Sometimes the path to forever is a twisting, spiraling, and flying ride. Come experience the heartache and pain, joy and intimacy that is Kailee Reese Samuels Juliet. Continue reading
