RELEASE BLITZ - The Surrogate by Penelope Ward #agegap #foundfamily #enemiestolovers #contemporaryromance #romancereaders #releaseblitz @PenelopeAuthor @GiveMeBooksPR


RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Surrogate
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Age Gap/Widower/Found Family
Forbidden/Enemies to Friends to Lovers
Release Date: February 26, 2024
  

BLURB
 
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward comes a new, STANDALONE novel…
 
ABBY:
I’m falling for the father of the baby I’m carrying.

The problem is: it’s not my baby.

And the broody widower is not looking for a long-term partner.

As a surrogate, the deal was that I’d only be in England long enough to give birth.

At first, the man seemed as pretentious as his name: Sigmund Benedictus.

He and I butted heads.

Sig challenged my intentions, accused me of just wanting to do this for the money.

Gradually, he learned to trust me.

He even became protective.

Over time, our heated animosity turned into fiery chemistry.

I was falling in love with him.

But my time here had a limit.

I needed to protect my heart from the devastatingly gorgeous older man who’d end up breaking it.

SIG:
When my in-laws told me they wanted to use my dead wife’s eggs to conceive a grandchild, I wasn’t immediately on board.

They swore that on her deathbed Britney told them it was what she wanted—but only if I fathered the baby. Her parents insisted they would be the ones to raise it.

Against my better judgment, I agreed.

I vowed to keep my heart out of it, though.

I’d continue to pretend it wasn’t happening and live the empty, single life I’d become accustomed to the past five years since Britney died.

And despite the fact that a certain younger American named Abby Knickerbocker had awakened things inside me that I thought were long dead…

I most certainly wouldn’t fall in love with the surrogate.

RELEASE BLITZ - What Happens at the Lake by Vi Keeland #newrelease #romancereaders #contemporaryromance @ViKeeland @GiveMeBooksPR


RELEASE BLITZ
Title: What Happens at the Lake
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Trope: Grumpy-Sunshine
Release Date: January 15, 2024
 
BLURB
 
When life took an unexpected turn, I decided to get out of New York for a while. What better place to go than the idyllic small town my father spoke about so fondly when I was growing up? Laurel Lake held the title America’s Friendliest Town for seventeen years running, and friendly was just what I needed right now.
 
Unfortunately, friendly wasn’t the welcome I got when I arrived.
 
Instead, I got Fox Cassidy. My tall, dark, and burly neighbor, who grunted at me instead of saying hello.
 
Okay, so I might’ve had his mailbox in my hands the first time we met. And it might’ve been a little crushed after removing it from under my tire. And I might’ve needed his help breaking into the place I was staying in after the key broke off in the lock. But still…he didn’t have to be so grumpy.
 
As time went on though, I started to notice things about Fox other than his glares. Like how he watched me when he thought I wasn’t looking, or how fire ignited in his eyes whenever we bickered. Though I was in Laurel Lake to escape my problems, not create new ones. And getting involved with a man like Fox screamed trouble, even if he was gorgeous and unlike any man I’d ever met.
 
But alas, problem seemed to be my middle name this year. So why not have some fun while I was here for the summer? It seemed like a good plan. At least until it was time to go home…
 
They say what happens at the lake, stays at the lake. But it’s not so easy to walk away when what stays behind…is your heart.

Stuff Your E-reader Day is back! #stuffyourereader #stuffyourkindle #stuffyournook #stuffyourkobo #romancereaders

 


I'm here with free books - including Kissed - on December 27th!

https://www.romancebookworms.com

Are you a voracious romance reader?

Stuff your Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Apple product, or Google Play reader now.


I cannot promise these books will be free past today, so please act quickly. Amazon, especially, has a habit of reverting them to paid at the worst timing for the author and readers.

Kissed (Jacob and Beth's Rockstar Life #1)




Download from me | Eden Books | Amazon | Amazon UK | Apple | BarnesAndNoble | Kobo | Google Play | Smashwords | Scribd |

One kiss ignites chemistry and passion they can’t ignore, but is this only a summer fling?

Neighbors. Best friends. It was only a crush Beth harbored for Jacob until she was eighteen. Until London.

Neighbors. Best friends. That was all Jacob thought of her until London. Until she kissed him and stole his heart.

It's funny what Geometry class and a shared backyard wall can bring about. With a two-year age difference, Beth and Jacob were firmly in the Friend Zone during high school, but a pre-college trip to London will change their lives forever.

KISSED is the first of five books exploring Beth and Jacob’s relationship with all its joys, flaws, and heartache. 

Contemporary Romance saga. This story is intended for readers 18 and over due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.

RELEASE BLITZ - The Rules of Dating My One-Night Stand by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland @PenelopeAuthor @ViKeeland @GiveMeBooksPR


RELEASE BLITZ
Title: The Rules of Dating My One-Night Stand
Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2023
 

BLURB
 
Rule number one for having a one-night stand: Don’t fall for the girl. 

After a lengthy dating slump, I finally met someone who sparked my interest. 

Well, first the sparks flew when we argued. Later in the evening those sparks ignited into something more.   

I was drawn to Devyn, in a way I hadn’t felt in a really long time. 

Needless to say, I was disappointed when she abruptly left after our amazing night together.  

I couldn’t stop thinking about her. But she hadn’t even given me her number. 

In a city with eight-million people, I figured I’d never see Devyn again. 

So imagine my surprise when I knocked on the door of an apartment in the building I lived in, and none other than my one-night stand stood on the other side. 

If I thought Devyn didn’t want anything to do with me before, that was nothing compared to how she felt after finding out I was the landlord and she was about to be evicted… 

And that was just the first surprise that would rock my world when it came to the mystery woman in apartment 410.

“Can I ask you something?”

“What?”

“Were you jealous that I was out with another woman?”

Devyn looked away. “No.”

My lip twitched. “No, huh?”

“I wasn’t jealous.”

It was difficult to keep a straight face, because she was so clearly full of sh$t. But…if she wasn’t jealous, a few details wouldn’t bother her, right?

I sipped my wine and watched Devyn’s face. “Tarryn asked if I wanted to take her back to my place.”
Her eyes narrowed. “That’s nice.”

“We’ve had sex before. So I don’t think she wanted to sit on the couch and watch TV.”

Devyn’s face flushed red.

I couldn’t help myself. I wanted to see her get pissed—admit she was damn jealous.

“Yeah, that Tarryn’s a real wild woman in bed. Last time she visited, we broke a lamp. Knocked it right off the end table from the bed bouncing around so much.”

I watched the muscle flex in her cheek, the same cheek that was turning a lovely shade of crimson. Yet she still wouldn’t look at me.

“Devyn?”

Her lips pursed as she stared straight ahead.

“Devyn?” I said louder.

“What?”

“Look at me.”

Her head whipped to face me, and she stared with daggers in her eyes.

I smiled. “It wouldn’t bother you if I…fu¢ked Tarryn?”

That did it.

She broke.

But she didn’t yell at me like I expected.

Not at all.

Instead, she smashed her lips against mine.

It caught me so off guard that I took a few seconds to catch up. By the time I did, Devyn was hoisting herself over, climbing me like a freaking tree.

Fu¢k yeah.

This.

This was the chemistry we’d had from the very start.

I grabbed her a$s with one hand, lifting her higher, and guided her legs around my waist, so lost in the moment that nothing existed in the world except this kiss.

Which was probably why I didn’t hear the door open…
