Title: Inciting a Riot

Author: Karen Renee

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Inciting a Riot:

Cary “Vamp” Sullivan earned his Riot MC patch and shoved Lorraine Francis Ingram out of his life six years ago by cheating on her. He’s regretted it ever since because he knew she was a top-notch woman. After mentioning his regrets to his brother, Cal, Vamp suddenly finds himself faced with an opportunity to win Lorraine back. When he runs into her unexpectedly and finds out she has been beaten at the hands of a man, Vamp and his Riot MC Brothers are determined to protect her. Vamp is determined to get her back in his life, and he knows it’s going to be an uphill battle.

Lorraine insists that if any Riot MC Brother is going to protect her, it cannot be Vamp. She gets no promises from the Riot MC, and she finds herself with Vamp at her doorstep. She’s determined there will be no second chances, but her resolve is weakened because Vamp isn’t playing fair, he’s fighting…fighting to win her over.

Once she and Vamp are reunited again, they realize there is a very real threat to them both. Lorraine and Vamp are put to the test to rekindle their long lost love and stay alive.

EXCERPT:

“Eyes on the prize, Mal! Stealing a woman’s shoes is not done. Not ever!”

She nodded, and Trixie moved to the door. She pulled it open, but the other prospect was standing right there. He took one look at the three of us and shook his head.

That was it. Nobody else might have heard it, but my hold on everything from my patience to my temper snapped.

“Don’t you stand there and shake your biker-prospect head at me. That fuckin’ bitch thinks she can steal my shoes, shoes that I worked a year-and-a-half for, without feeling my wrath, you’re completely wrong! If they’re my other pair of Jimmy’s, then they cost as much as one of my mortgage payments. It’ll be a –”

The prospect moved away when Vamp filled the space in front of me. “Take it down a notch, woman. She’s crazy as a jay-bird. We talked about that earlier. You aren’t getting anywhere near her.”

“Bullshit.”

“Yeah, that is total bullshit,” Mallory added, from directly behind me.

From the side of the patio, I heard Cal grumble, “Mallory, not your business.”

“Now that’s bullshit too, because no girlfriend is going to let another girlfriend have her shoes stolen from her. And if a bitch thinks she can try a fool-thing like that, she’s gonna learn a lesson.”

I glared right into Vamp’s blazing blue eyes and said, “This cannot stand.”

“They’re shoes, and apparently they weren’t the name-brand heels you’re talkin’ about, but the motorcycle boots that you’ve had probably since six years ago.”

Whew, that’s a relief! I thought, but I did not give voice to that thought. It would have served her right to think that she stole a pair of Jimmy Choo heels only to get home with her heist and find out they were motorcycle boots.

I heard a voice ask, “Christ! How many pairs of shoes does she have in the back of that thing? Found the bitch carrying that box, but I still saw three boxes of shoes in the back when I passed by just now.”

Confusion was written all over my face and I didn’t need a mirror to know it. Vamp read it, spun on his heel and moved to the side. Rage’s bulky frame replaced Vamp at the door, which prevented me from making any headway toward getting outside.

Then I heard Vamp roar, “What the fuck did you put in her truck, bitch?”

I couldn’t hear or see what Starla might have done, but then I heard Vamp roaring in frustration. Rage turned his head, as we both saw Vamp running toward my vehicle. At that point Starla screeched, “No!”

I didn’t know where the strength came from in me, or if I had just lucked out and taken the brick-wall that was Rage by surprise, but I managed to shove him out of my way and I was running out toward my SUV. Vamp turned around when Starla screamed. He saw me approaching and suddenly he took two huge strides toward me.

Read an except from FROM THE BARONESS'S DIARY III:

My hands pause on the vine and I shake my head hard, trying to clear her voice from my thoughts. It’s not the first time this has happened to me and a hard shake of my head usually takes care of the problem.

“It’s me, Chloé.”

But not this time. A spark of hope flows through me as I slowly turn my head to her voice.

My dream takes a step forward, her boots crunching on the leaves I have been clearing. Because I have been tormented that my trip had been in vain and that I would have to wait to go to France and comb Paris to find where her friend lives. Only manual work under the sun could take her out of my head.

“Chloé?” I ask hesitantly, scared I am having a vision.

There’s a storm inside me. A whirlwind of surprise and fear, threatening to drown me.

Why are you here? And from somewhere deep inside, another question whispers itself. Why did you take so long?

Emotions flit across her beautiful face. She looks older. Well, she’s four years older than when I last saw her, but it’s not that. There are delicate lines around her eyes now, as if she has begun to smile more, her face is leaner, more mature—even more beautiful, if that is possible—and her body seems to be thinner, more toned than it had been at the manor, but that is not something I can say for sure at a glance. Maybe it’s her clothes, which are also more modern than the ones she wore in Beardley Manor but still very proper.

Oui,” she answers, clasping her hands so tightly together in front of her I can see her fingers getting white.

I clear my throat as I drop the shears into the basket at my feet. “Why have you come?”

It’s not the reunion I have pictured in my mind. There’s something different about her, something more timid than the woman I have given my body and my heart to.

“I-I have come to find you, Salvatore. You did not return and I-I—” Her voice falters as if she realizes only now she doesn’t know why she has come all this way to find me. “I was tired of waiting and I am a bit impatient…you know.”

I chuckle, but I still can’t make myself meet her gaze. “Cara, we all knew you are a lot impatient.”

“You did not come back to me.”

I lift my head at the sound of her voice breaking and I see a myriad of emotions in her eyes. There’s concern, desire, and hope, but none of the heat that we had once shared. “I am not under your thumb to do your bidding any longer, my lady.”

Her eyes widen as the tone of my voice surprises her.

“You were never under my thumb, Salvatore, you were in my heart.”

Her cheeks flush from her own declaration and I regret the cold sound of my words. I clear my throat.

I knew I would never have her as my own, but for a time it was like I owned her, body, heart, and soul. She was the lady of the manor, wife of the baron. But while he had her legally, her body craved mine and no matter how much time he may have spent with her, it was our time together that brought her to life, gave birth to her naughty streak. She belonged to me.

She is still mine.

Cara,” I say softly, stripping off my gloves. “I thought I would never see you again.”

A tear escapes her eye as I meet her halfway, feeling the coolness of her hands as they run over the warm skin of my back. She is fresh and perfumed in contrast to my smell of dirt and sweat, but she doesn’t seem to care. She never has.

I burrow my face into her shoulder and I breathe deep, taking in her scent—English roses, her favorite flowers. It has haunted me night and day since I left her in that forsaken manor with that bastard of a husband.

SAY A SWEET PRAYER ~ JENNIFER REBECCA --> EXCERPT

 

Today we have the blog tour for Say A Sweet Prayer by Jennifer Rebecca! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today:

Title: Say A Sweet Prayer

Author: Jennifer Rebecca

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover by Alyssa Garcia at Uplifting Designs.

About Say A Sweet Prayer:

The sleepy little New Jersey township has been relatively quiet as plans for the wedding of Claire Goodnite and Wesley O’Connell are in full swing. But when the patrons of the church’s singles group are being picked off one by one and branded with a scarlet letter in blood, Claire and the team put their festivities on hold to track down a killer.

 

It’s just another case, another day in the life of a police officer until tragedy strikes their small circle of friends. When one of their own becomes one of the victims, how will the group go on? Or more importantly, can Claire survive it?

EXCERPT:

“So, what’s kicking, ladies?” I ask as I plop into the booth after ordering a turkey and cheese sandwich and a lemonade.

“We were just commiserating, that’s all,” Emma sighs.

“Yeah, nothing you would be interested in.” Anna winks at me. “Besides, what’s new with you?”

“Well tonight is a mandatory family dinner at mom and dad’s, all hands-on deck. Something about wedding prep.” I shrug. “I don’t know.”

“I’m in,” Anna says. “I’ve got a vested interest to not wear anything hideous or polyester.”

“Me too,” Emma adds. “And I’ve got nowhere to be.”

“That’s a recipe for disaster but I’ll tell mom you guys are coming.” I laugh. “And back to the original topic, I’m interested in everything you two do. What are we commiserating about?”

“Bad dates,” The say simultaneously.

“Oh man, I’ve had some doozies. Buckle your seatbelts, girls.” I laugh. “Did I ever tell you about the guy that talked non-stop about his iPhone. It was ridiculous. He had all these extras and a special backpack that connected to his Bluetooth! I couldn’t take it. After we paid the check I left and ignored his calls for four days before he finally gave up calling.”

“That’s nothing!” Emma laughs. The last date I went on asked me if he could suck on my toes. Before the wine was even served!”

“Maybe you’d like it.” I shrug.

“Maybe I want a decent, stand-up guy with a monster dick in his pants,” Emma says with her usual candor. “One who isn’t so free with sharing said monster.”

“That is basically asking for the Chupacabra and Bigfoot to have a unicorn baby and name him squishy,” Anna laments.

“Besides, Claire,” Emma smiles at me to soften the blow. “Your opinion on this subject is now no longer valid.”

“What?” I laugh. “My opinion is always valid. And right too.”

“No way.” Anna winks. “You got your happily ever after.”

“Right?” Emma agrees. “That’s the Holy Grail.” I open my mouth to disagree with them to make them feel better, but I stop myself before the words can come it. It feels like if I lessen the importance of what Wes and I have, even to make my friends feel a little better, that it’s a betrayal to Wes. I just can’t do that.

We’re treading into dangerous territory here, I want to dodge and evade as much as possible. If we tread onto Lee territory at least one of my friends, if not both will end up hurt and broken. My brother is a great guy and I love him with all my heart, but he’s a grade A asshole with women and he always has been. I’m pretty sure I was up front about that with both of my friends and they both jumped on his magic stick hoping for the best.

“Holy shit!” I laugh. The kid delivering our baskets of sandwiches and chips looks a little shell shocked obviously having caught part of our conversation. He drops those baskets and beat feet out of there. “Feet? But is that as bad as the guy I hooked up with from the station and two days later he’d had a case of guilty conscience and told his girlfriend in Maryland about it. She kept messaging me on social media to tell me what a whore I was. But I didn’t even know he had a girlfriend! If anyone was a whore, it was him and not me. At least he transferred to a Maryland department shortly after.”

“I’m pretty sure he didn’t make that choice on his own,” Emma says vaguely.

“Oh, I know. Liam told him he should strongly consider moving closer to his girlfriend for his own personal safety. I hear they’re married, have roughly seventy-five children, and he fucks anything that breathes.” I shrug. “Not my problem and it never was. He was a one off.”

“I never got how you could be so cavalier about relations,” Anna chimes in.

“I never wanted to get attached. Men do it all the time, why should I have been any different just because I have boobs and a vagina?” Too late, I realized my mistake. There was no way I could back pedal and not look like an asshole so Emma and I just stay silent while we watch Anna’s face crumple.

Why couldn’t I have just kept my fucking mouth shut?

“I’m sorry,” I say.

“It’s so stupid,” she says, wiping her eyes with her fingertips. “It was one night, I knew he was only ever going to give me one night, I had just hoped . . .”

“Anna—”

“Like I said, stupid.”

“The fuck it is!” Emma thunders. “He is such an asshole.”

“No, he’s not and you know it. He’s a great guy.” Anna takes a deep breath before pressing on. “I just need to let go, and I know it. But it’s so hard and I want him so bad. You know what they say?”

“What’s that?” I ask.

“You can’t always get what you want,” Anna answers.

“Or maybe we want the things that are bad for us,” I say softly to Anna but really, to both of them. I love my brother and shouldn’t speak ill of him, but he is toxic for both of them and they can do so much better.

“Anna, he’s a jerk really,” Emma pleads. “You don’t know what he’s done—”

“I do,” she says quietly. “And it’s okay. I love him enough that I want him to be happy. I want you to be happy too.”

“I am happy,” Emma denies.

“Are you?” she asks in her quack voice. Man, I hate when she turns those questions on me. It feels pretty good to see her point them at someone else for a change. I know that if I could see my face I would see a gleefully smug smile on my face. It’s a little evil of me and I’m pretty okay with that.

“I’m happier without him than I would ever be with him. If he was so great he wouldn’t be doing this—to either of us. He would just ride off into the sunset with you and live happily ever after,” Emma explains her reasonings and I have to say, her logic is pretty sound.

“Only in my dreams.” Anna sighs. “I just wished that I was enough, you know?”

“You are enough,” I tell her.

“If anything,” Emma snaps. “He’s not good enough for you.”

Anna shoots Emma a watery smile. “It’s sweet of you to say. And I do appreciate it, but we all know that it’s true. Sometimes, I just don’t feel like I belong, you know? With you guys and Wes and Lee. Everyone is this badass with a gun, not afraid to get down and dirty with crime and I’m just . . . me.”

“What?” Now I’m shouting. “Of course, you belong!”

“I know, and I do, but I also don’t. I’m not a tough police officer. I drive a Mercedes. I’m just . . . different from you guys.”

“Don’t let that dick make you feel like you don’t fit in because you do,” Emma practically shouts. I can hear the tension in her voice, the strain of this love triangle is really getting to her.

“It’s okay, really,” Anna says, her voice is small, and I hate it. “I’m different and I know it. Anyways, I should go.”

“You don’t have to,” I say but I know we all have to get back on the clock soon. She shoots me a watery smile before standing up and clearing her basket on the way out the door.

“Emma—” I start.

“Don’t say it.” She doesn’t want to hear the truth, the real problem with her predicament. If Lee was just fooling around with them it would be one thing, but feelings are involved in a perfect storm of disaster and heartbreak.

“He loves you,” I finish quietly.

“I love her more and he’s tearing her apart.”

“And what about you?” I ask. “Is this tearing you apart too?”

“None of that matters, and . . . well . . . he’s an asshole. Plus, you know what they say? You can’t always get what you want,” she says sadly before following Anna out the door.

“This place is beautiful,” he said when she hesitated.

She nodded but didn’t move from her seat. “I love it here. I went to college in Denver, but I always missed this place. When I was younger, my dad had a house in Creede. He started the business there, but when he could, he moved us out of town. My dad was a loner, I suppose. Creede has a population of four hundred and Dad thought that was way too many people.”

“I know the feeling. I lived in London for a while. That was definitely too many people.” He kept his tone even. It was odd. Now that he was here, that hunger he always felt was tempered by her fear. He’d thought he would take anything offered to him, but he couldn’t having met her. If the blonde had offered herself up, he would have turned her down. Over the two hours they’d sat in the booth, eating fried food and drinking beer, he’d figured something out. Some people were more special than others. River was special. He should be more cynical. He could hear Damon Knight telling him to be cautious, but he couldn’t make himself do it. Perhaps it was the fact that he didn’t have a long well of history to draw from and to teach him that this was likely a mistake.

It didn’t feel like a mistake.

“Wow. I’ve never been farther than Kansas City.” She still wasn’t moving and her voice had taken on a tremulous tone.

His heart constricted, and it was surprisingly easy to not listen to his dick. His dick was pleading with him to get aggressive. His dick was trying to convince him that if he could get inside her, she would accept him.

Yeah, he wasn’t going to listen to his dick.

“If you’ve changed your mind, I can call my brother to pick me up. I have a phone and so does he. His number is programmed in. I don’t want to scare you. I had a good time talking to you tonight. It was one of the nicest nights I’ve had in a long time.” Ever. It was the best night ever. It was the first night he felt normal, though he wasn’t exactly sure what that word meant. Comfortable was a better one. That tight feeling in his chest had eased as he’d sat in the booth with River and Tucker and Heather.

Although he’d hated lying to her.

She finally turned, looking at him. Her eyes shone in the moonlight. “You mean that, don’t you?”

He wanted to touch her. He’d had to force his hands not to move toward her all night long. The most he’d allowed himself was to have their hips and shoulders touch as they’d sat next to each other. He’d decided it had been a good thing he’d sat next to her because he was fairly certain he had a case of Big Tag’s crazy eyes, and she would have seen them had he sat across from her.

“I do mean it. Please don’t get me wrong. I want you. I would like nothing more in the world than to take you into that cabin, lay you out, and make a feast of you. I want to kiss you and when I say that I don’t merely mean your lips. I want to put my mouth all over your body. But more than I want that, I want you to like me.” It was important somehow. He wouldn’t see her after tonight, but he couldn’t stand the idea that she was afraid of him.

Everyone was afraid of him. Everyone he knew was waiting for his powder keg to blow, but he’d sworn to himself earlier in the evening that it wouldn’t blow around her. He would protect her even if it was only for one night.

About FROM THE BARONESS’S DIARY III: THE HAPPILY EVER

Available August 28th

I’ve been trying to get away from one man, I didn’t think I’d end up with three.

I flee my abusive husband and travel to Italy to find Salvatore Di Luca, my long-lost love.

But the moment I set foot in Sicily, my life takes an unexpected turn: I meet Enzo, a dominant, broken-hearted man, and we connect at first sight. I couldn’t have imagined he is Salvatore’s elder brother and that they have a younger brother, Angelo, who thinks he is damaged for life.

It’s more than a trip. It’s a life-time journey.

All three of them want me and I want to heal their tortured souls and broken hearts. Before I even realize what is happening, we are entangled. Yet I am still married and the darkness of my past comes crashing down on us sooner rather than later, threatening more than our happiness.

But I won’t go down without a fight—and neither will my Harem—because my journey won’t be complete until forever belongs to the four of us.

If you are a fan of a romantic Reverse Harem Romance, you will love this scandalous, refreshing, and, of course, incredibly sexy story which involves three alpha Italian knights who will do anything for their baroness—ops, their Principessa.
