Release Blitz: ‘Ruthless King’ by Maya Hughes

Title: Ruthless King

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Najla Qamber, Qamber Designs

Release Date: January 10, 2019




My d*ck never got me in half as much trouble as my heart…


We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.


Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again.


She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.


This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…

Cover Reveal: ‘Just Exes’ by Charity Ferrell

Title: Just Exes
Series: Blue Beech #3
Author: Charity Ferrell
Genre: New Adult Romance
Cover Design: Charity Ferrell
 Release Date: August 30, 2018



Running into an ex you haven’t seen in nearly a decade is never a good time.

Running into your ex while he’s arresting you is humiliating.

The handcuffs close around my fists at the same time he promises to hate me until he takes his last breath.

I can’t blame him. He pleaded for me not to walk away.  He doesn’t know leaving him broke my heart as much as it did his.

It wasn’t for me. Rather, it was for someone else.



I skipped town after Hurricane Lauren obliterated my heart.

Coming home was a hard choice to make. Arresting her isn’t.

She has no idea of the demons I carry with me now. No idea that I’m a new man.

Two women ruined me.

One I gave my heart to.

The other punished me for it.

Release Blitz & Author Interview: ‘Shameless King’ by Maya Hughes

Title: Shameless King

A Kings of Rittenhouse Novel

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: 28th June 2018


About the Book:

A deliciously steamy enemies with benefits romance.

Declan McAvoy. Voted Biggest Flirt. Highest goal scorer in Kings of Rittenhouse Prep history.
Everyone’s impressed, well except one person…

After a blow out in high school, Makenna Halstead and I were happy to never have to cross paths again. Except life has a way of knocking you straight in the teeth with a puck when you least expect it. She hasn’t just returned to my life, she crashed into it like a wrecking ball…into my college kingdom, into my class, and smack dab into the seat next to mine. My new lab partner to be exact.

For years we hated each other… I may be King on the ice, but she is the Ice Queen. She has no problem calling me out, doesn’t back down, and her piercing blue eyes have me picturing more than than just my arms wrapped around her.

Now we’re stuck with each other and there’s no getting around that fact that we have to work together. My hockey career hangs in the balance. Problem? Oh, yeah.

I can’t deny it. I want her. More than I ever thought I could want a woman. I’ve got one semester–only four months–to convince her everything she thought about me was wrong.

Will my queen let me prove to her I’m the King she can’t live without?

Only one way to find out…

Author Interview:

1: Tell us a little about yourself and what got you in to writing?

I’m Maya Hughes, romance writer, mom of 3 and wife to an incredibly supportive husband. I got into writing when one of my friends got tired of me complaining about the stories bouncing around in my head and how I’d one day write them down. She just said, why not start today? Something clicked and I’ve pretty much written every single day since then.

2: Do you have a favourite time and place where you write?

In the mornings always works best for me. I do it before the kids wake up and before I head out to work. Once I have even a few words done for the day, I can relax a bit and work on other things through the day guilt-free! I write anywhere I can, but usually in our office.

3: Where do your ideas come from?

Anything, really. It can be a song. Someone I see on the street or something that comes completely from my imagination. Sometimes a story comes knocking and I HAVE to write it.

4: Do you have a plan in your head of where the story is going before you start writing or do you let it carry you along as you go?

I generally start with an outline, but the story evolves as I write no matter how much I try to plan ahead. The more I write the story, the better I get to know the characters. The more I know about them gives their voice and the direction a much more powerful thrust.

5: What genre are your books and what drew you to that genre?

My books are mainly contemporary romance. My upcoming book, Shameless King, is a new adult and college romance, so that’s a little different, but they all have the same overall feel. I throw in some laughs, a few tears, lots of emotions and a story of two people finding each other, however that might be.

6: What dream cast would you like to see playing the characters in your latest book?

I don’t know. I haven’t thought about it too much. I’ve never really matched up my characters to any actors currently out there.

7: Do you read much and if so who are your favourite authors?

I don’t read too much anymore, which is a shame. I wish I could read more. Some of my favs in this non-exhaustive list are Kylie Scott, Penelope Douglas, Laurann Dohner, Theodora Taylor and so many many more.

8: What book/s are you reading at present?

I’m re-reading a lot of older books I’ve enjoyed reading before. I like to re-read when I’m writing because these are stories I know and they don’t stress me out!

9: What is your favourite book and why?

I don’t have one single favorite. I have so many different moods when it comes to my reading and one book might work one day or week or month and later it won’t as much.

10: What advice would you give for someone thinking about becoming a writer?

Write every day. Even if you can only write 50 words, do that and keep doing that until your book is finished!

11: What are the best Social Media Sites for people to find out about you and your work?

Release Blitz: ‘Electric Blue Love’ by Rebecca Jenshak

Title: Electric Blue Love
Author: Rebecca Jenshak
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: June 18, 2018


Here’s a thing I learned a long time ago… guys and girls don’t think about relationships the same way. Especially in college. So, when I caught the girl sitting next to me on the plane reading a magazine article on how to get out of the friend zone, I did something I never do – I got involved.

One look into her electric blue eyes and the darkness inside of me faded.Light and hope radiated from her like a neon sign.

Guys like me know how to get the girl, but we rarely get to keep them.


Girls like me fade into the background. Nice, quiet, smart girls without the latest trendy clothes. My friendship with Court started as an opportunity to get inside the male mind, but it turned into so much more.

His touch sent current coursing through my veins.

His kiss jolted my heart.

But here is something I learned a long time ago… you can’t force people to love you back. No matter how much you long for them.

Flying coach was bullshit. The crying babies and the cramped seats weren’t even the worst of it, although admittedly not a perk. The real problem with sitting in the back of the plane was the comradery among the other passengers. In first-class no one tried to chat about the weather or ask the dreaded “Are you visiting or returning home?”. No, in first class we sat in our large, reclining seats with plenty of leg room, cold drink on the tray table, laptop open, and we minded our own damn business.

I didn’t sit in first class because of some ego trip where I needed to flaunt my better than average salary around. I did it because I preferred the silence. Also, I traveled so much it was almost always a free upgrade. Not today.

At least I’d been lucky enough to snag an aisle seat. Unlike the girl sitting in 8B. She didn’t look up as I shrugged off my suit jacket and placed it with my carry-on bag in the overhead bin. She stared down at the magazine in her hands, a pen gripped in her mouth.

Pink lips were wrapped around the blue pen and her eyebrows
were drawn together in deep concentration. The only indication I had that she knew her seat neighbor had arrived was the way she shielded the magazine with an elbow as I slid into my seat. Her stance reminded me of those smart kids who strategically placed their arm around the edge of the desk so that no one could cheat off their test answers.

Intrigued, I settled in and peeked over her arm and down at the glossy pages only catching the headline: How to Get Out of the Friend Zone and Land the Guy of Your Dreams. My eyes trailed up to the young woman so enthralled with such a ludicrous title and I studied her closer.

She was beautiful, but not in an in your face way. I definitely couldn’t see her being banned to the friend zone. Her blonde hair was piled up in a bun on the top of her head, face clear and tanned even in the dreary March weather we’d been having. A faded, oversized floral dress was worn over leggings and sparkly shoes completed a look that was a cross between a preppy sorority girl and an artsy free spirit. She dressed in a way that told me she didn’t know she was beautiful or if she knew, she just didn’t care enough to conform to a style.

Judging by her reading material I was sold on the first option.

As the other passengers filed into their seats, I found myself intrigued and unable to focus on anything but 8B. I glanced over politely, hoping she’d look up and make eye contact so I could get a better look at her. No luck. She kept her focus on the garbage reading material in front of her as the cabin doors were closed and the flight attendants prepared for departure. When we’d reached twenty thousand feet and she still hadn’t so much as side-eyed me, I gave up and pulled out my laptop to do some work.

I stared at the reports in front of me for five minutes, not reading a word, before I gave up and closed the laptop with a snap. She jumped, startled, and I turned to give her my attention. When her eyes finally found mine, I inhaled sharply.

Bright blue eyes were outlined with a heavy hand on the eyeliner or eyeshadow, whatever it was called, in a striking blue. I couldn’t decide if was a fashion statement or a fashion disaster, but her eyes held mine captive and my lips parted to speak, only no words came out. We stared for a moment too long, neither saying a word, until she glanced down at her exposed reading and flipped it shut.
