BOOK TOUR + GIVEAWAY: Unforeseen 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? 












Peter stared at Alex as she stood before him with her hands on her deliciously curved hips. His nerves were shot. They had been since the day Sam was murdered. The more he dug into Sam’s case, the worse it got. He worried about Alex twenty-four seven. Absently, he pressed his hand to his chest. The unease coiled within him for the past several months would be the death of him.
Alex stared at him, obviously waiting for a response. He knew his hands would be full, even before he suggested she stay at his house. That dang stubborn side of her tended to come out at the worst times. But he couldn’t let her stay alone; it was too dangerous. He shifted his gaze to the couch. ”Well then I guess I’ll just sleep here tonight. Tomorrow you’re going to get a security system installed, so I don’t have to worry about you so much.”
“Okay,” Alex replied as she turned and padded off to the hall closet. She returned a moment later with a pillow and blanket and set them on the sofa.
Peter made himself as comfortable as he could on the couch, which was about six inches shy in length to suit his needs. He watched, unable to look away from Alex, as she moved down the hall. She entered the spare bedroom rather than the master. It hurt to see that. It pained him even more that she slept in the next room, and he couldn’t be with her. His heart constricted. He thought about how much he loved her but couldn’t have her. He’d loved her from the first time he laid eyes on her, but from the beginning, her heart had belonged to Sam.
Lucky Sam.
He let out a sigh.
Peter tossed and turned for hours, thinking of Alex in the next room and imagining what he’d be doing to her if he were sharing her bed. He pressed the palm of his hand to his chest. As much as his body ached for her, his heart ached for her more.
Throughout the night, he heard her cry. The first time, he went to check on her. Just as he was about to knock on the door, he heard her mumble Sam’s name. He wanted to cry himself for the agony Sam’s death caused her. He’d give his right arm if her pain would go away. Over and over, he tried to bargain with God, offering anything for Alex to be happy again. No deal.

#NewRelease: Saved by a Soldier by @alisonmelloauth #romance

Saved By a Soldier By Alison Mello

Release Date: June 14, 2016
Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Patricia Ann Fitzgerald is no man’s arm candy…

Refusing to entertain her mother’s ridiculous notion that she should become the perfect little housewife for her ex-boyfriend Ben, Patty escapes to her father’s lake house to focus on what matters most to her. She has to break through her writer’s block and start her next book.

Medically discharged from the service and suffering from PTSD, Carter Montgomery is still trying to get his life back in order…

When Carter's father Jackson suggests a week at the lake, it's not only so he can gain a little clarity about his future. Jackson has other plans for his recovering son, intending for him to watch over his best friend’s daughter while she’s on a solo writing retreat—an idea that doesn’t please Carter at all.

Patty finds it hard to get any work done when her attention keeps diverting to the handsome stranger next door…

Patty is persuaded to attend a charity event, despite knowing her ex will be in attendance. When Ben rudely interrupts Patty’s dance with her father and drags her off the floor, Carter is quick to intervene. He’s tired of admiring Patty from afar, and refuses to see her treated that way. Ready to ditch the stuffy event, Patty escapes with her savior someplace where they can finally talk.

Ben always gets what he wants, and he isn’t willing to let Patty slip away…

Patty fights to preserve her blooming relationship with Carter from the critical eyes of her mother and the scheming ways of her ex. Will Carter manage to get his life back in order in time to save Patty from the life she never wanted?

About the author

Alison Mello is a wife and stay at home mom to a wonderful little boy. She lives with her amazing family in Massachusetts. She loves playing soccer, basketball and football with her son.
After having her son, Alison started reading again and fell in love with Contemporary Romance. Reading made her happy and gave her something to do when she had downtime.  As she started to read more, she started to notice things she really enjoyed in a book and things she didn’t. She began to have ideas for writing one of her own.  One day she literally woke up and started writing.  She realized that if there was ever a time for her to write, it was now.  She had a part time job to give her something to do. The hours at work were slow and she was bored with what she was doing, so while her son was off enjoying his friends over summer vacation she got started.
Alison finished the first book in two weeks and decided that she really enjoyed writing, so she kept going. She already had ideas in mind for books two and three, so she kept writing.  That is how the Learning to Love Series was born. Somewhere along the line, one of my Beta readers convinced me that Michael, a character from Finding Love, needed his own story.  That is when Alison added the fourth and final book. Alison hopes you enjoy her books as much as she enjoyed writing them.
She’s so glad she started this writing journey and hopes you will stay with her for the ride. Chasing Dreams is scheduled to release in April and the first two books of the Love Conquers Life series will be out this summer!

#NewRelease #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?
