CAGED
Bound by Cage #1


Savannah- I was perfectly content with my life, or at least I thought I was. Then Zander ‘The Hitman’ Cage walked into my bar with those hypnotizing blue eyes and everything I ever thought I wanted flew out the window. Giving him a chance was the easiest decision I ever made. He ripped apart my safe little existence and took me along for the ride of my life. He was a fighter, a hero and every woman’s fantasy.

Zander- I didn’t need any distractions coming up on the biggest fight of my career, but fate had other plans.
Savannah was a breath of fresh air and the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. I never planned on meeting her, I also don't plan on letting her go. I'll do whatever it takes to show her that I'm more than just the name, and will stop at nothing to make her mine.

RAMPAGE
Bound by Cage #2


Ashlyn- Pregnant and alone is never where I saw myself in life. Shit happens and you have to roll with it. He made his choice, and it kills me each time I see him living his new life. But what if things aren't really as they appear? What if I can still have a happily ever after?

Josh- You know that guy, the one that screws up his whole life over a stupid decision? Yeah, that's me. I had the girl and I blew it. Now I'm determined to salvage my fighting career and win her back. She doesn't know it yet, but I'm not taking no for an answer.

CHAOS
Bound by Cage #3


Rules of Play for Bagging and Banging 

1. No clingers 
2. No repeats
3. No innocents
4. No complications

Should be easy right? So why the f*** am I looking at the cult babe like a starving man and she's a succulent prime rib?

Georgie's everything I've ever avoided, all wrapped up in a sexy little package that plays havoc with my di... er, boyish ways. She's innocent and clearly needs help, she's  always around and god help me, just the thought of dirtying her good girl image has Little Jay at full salute. 

But I can't stay away, even when I have to run to her rescue and bring out the chaos. Guess I've been whipped like my brothers, but in my case, I make it look good.

If Jayden's going down... for the first time it'll be in the name of love.

About Brittany Crowley:

Brittany Crowley was born and raised in Massachusetts. She still lives there today with her husband and 3 kids. Getting into the world of romance after she had her first child, she was hooked. Though she had many ideas in her head, Brittany was unsure if she had what it took to become a writer. A few encouraging words and one writing challenge later, she completed her first book. Now you can find her trying to keep up with her crazy kids and writing any chance she gets.
Interview With Brittany Crowley:


  1. Can you tell us a little about your books? 
All of my books are Sports Romance focused on MMA. They are Romantic Comedies that follow a different couple every book, but it's the same world. The first one, Caged, follows Zander and Savvy through the biggest fight of his career. The second, Rampage, follows Josh and Ashlyn as he tries to get his fighting career back. It's a second chance romance as they try to figure out their relationship when Ash turns up pregnant after their one night together and his bad choices. And Chaos follows Jayden and Georgie as she tries to navigate the whole new world in front of her after escaping her horrible upbringing. 

I don't plan on staying solely in the Sports Romance Genre, but I love these books something fierce.

  1. When did you know you wanted to write a book?
I've had ideas in my head for the past two years but the thought of actually giving it a try was scary. After talking to one of my best friends, she convinced me to try and Caged was complete a month later. The time just felt right. 

  1. Do you have a favorite character to write about?
Jayden Cage in Chaos was my favorite. He's just so full of life and a big ball of inappropriateness. I thought I was going to have trouble writing him, but it just flowed so well. He's super funny. 

  1. Do you have a favorite spot to write?
My couch haha I don't have an office with a desk or anything. I'm usually anywhere my kids are playing off to the side with my laptop. 

  1. Do you listen to music while you write?
I actually don't, it's too distracting. I'm not one of those walk and chew gum types of people. If the TVs on or some music, I have a hard time focusing on what I'm doing. 

  1. If you ever experience a case of writer’s block, how do you cure it? 
Start writing something else. I always get writers block at the same point in every book I write. This generally always helps me. Or I take a break for a few days to get the ideas going in my head again. 

  1. If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have? 
Teleporting, or mind reading. Although I picture it like What Women Want and I'd hear a bunch of stuff I didn't want to. 

  1. What are you working on next?
I'm so excited for my next project. It's called The Big D. It's about a girl just going through the motions in life working 2 jobs. She meets Grant Kensington and at first has no idea who he is. Needless to say, they go on quite the journey when she finds out he's a super wealthy restauranteur and very much in the public eye. It's a RomCom and will come out some time in October.

Release Blitz for Two Bit by L. Wilder


Title: Two Bit
Series: Satan's Fury MC #7
Author: L. Wilder
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: August 22, 2017

Where I was his weakness, he became my strength.
Two Bit:
I've never been one to hold back. I’ve always said what was on my mind – right or wrong – and earned my name because of it. Giving my two cents hasn’t always been a good thing, but on one fateful night, it led me to her. She was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of girl. Undeniably beautiful. Fearless. Unforgettable.
I wanted her, but getting mixed up with her nearly cost me my life.
I tried to fight it. I tried to save myself from the flame... but after one touch, I knew there was no turning back.
Zoe would be mine.
Zoe:
Sometimes, you’ve got to hit rock bottom before you can find a way to move forward. Well, it’s time for me to find a way to move forward, because I’ve sure as hell hit rock bottom.
My father, the president of the Chosen Knights, died and left me a legacy I didn't want. The club was supposed to be my family, but with my father gone, they’d gotten tangled up in things I wanted no part of. I wanted out, free from the torment, but I was stuck with no money and no place to go. I’d thought all hope was gone.
Until he walked into the bar.
As if he’d stepped out of my dreams, he was everything I’d ever wanted. Handsome. Courageous. Passionate.
Being with him came at a price – a price I wasn’t sure either of us could pay.
When sparks fly and ignite a war, who will be left standing in the ashes?







In my mind, I knew I shouldn’t be there with him, that it was too much of a risk, but my heart just wasn’t listening. Even though I’d tried to keep my guard up, spending more time with him had only made me more attracted to him. His sense of humor, his sexy smile, and that body that made my pulse race were just too hard to resist. He shifted his stance as he looked at me, his eyes glistening in the darkness. I knew what was coming and glanced away. Then, unable to resist the temptation, I looked back at him. He hovered over me as his eyes roamed seductively across my lips, and I could only sit there frozen with excitement and anticipation. I couldn’t remember ever wanting anything more than feeling his lips against mine, and the waiting was pure agony. I should’ve been patient, but I couldn’t help myself. I inched closer, leaning towards him, but he never made his move. Instead, he just stood there staring at me with lust-filled eyes. Without thinking, I mumbled, “Um… I thought you were going to kiss me?”
His eyes sparkled with mischief as he asked, “What made you think I was going to kiss you?”
Embarrassment washed over me. “I guess I was just hoping you would.”
His voice was low and raspy as he asked, “You want me to kiss you, Zoe?”
I nodded as I answered, “Yes.”
“Well, I’m not so sure that’s a good idea.”
“Why not?”
His dark eyes flickered with hunger as they dropped to my breasts. “I’m not sure I’ll be able to stop once I get started.”
I hesitated for only a moment before I replied, “Maybe I don’t want you to stop.”
“Zoe,” he whispered slowly, prolonging each letter of my name as if to savor them. His eyes locked on mine as he leaned forward, but just as his lips were about to touch mine, he stopped. My lips parted, and our breaths mingled. The electricity crackled between us, making my entire body hum. I eased forward, trying to close the distance between us, but he quickly leaned out of my reach. I look up at him with disappointment. “Seriously?”
He paused, not to refuse, but to appreciate the moment before slipping his hand behind my neck and pulling me forward, crashing his mouth against mine. His lips were soft and full as they covered mine. It was like they were made just for me. His warm, wet tongue ran across my bottom lip as his hands snaked down my back. They were strong and sure as he pulled me closer to him. His touch. His scent. His taste. Everything about him made entire body tingle with desire. I had longed for that moment. It had been all I could think about, but I could’ve never imagined it could feel so good, so right. My fingers raked through his hair as I moaned against his mouth.









Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.
Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.

Release Blitz for Hooked by Karla Sorensen & Whitney Barbetti




Title: Hooked
Authors: Karla Sorensen & Whitney Barbetti
Genre: Dark Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 23, 2017



Blurb

X and I were probably doomed from the start.

That’s what happens when you meet in court-mandated group therapy and then try to steal from him to pay off your blackmailing drug dealer. Former drug dealer, thank you very much. I'm turning over a new leaf and all that.

Which is why I should leave him alone.

Except he tempts me to do things I swore I’d stop doing. It’s that whole gruff, grumbly, anti-social thing he has going on. Him, flame. Me, moth. Something about him calls to me, makes the blood hum in my body. And I don't want that feeling to end.


Lucy Connors is straight-up insane.

She looks like a Disney princess and tries my patience in more ways than I thought possible. Besides the fact that I have to save her cute little ass from jail, I can’t quite figure out how to leave her alone. Even when she’s trying her hand at Breaking and Entering. Especially when it's myhouse she's burglarizing.

Yeah, we were probably doomed from the start.

But that’s the thing about being hooked on something so good, and so bad for you—you don’t walk away when you should.

Well, let’s see ... I’m a wife and a mother. I’m a writer who wants to make people smile when they read my words. I own a dog that sheds roughly eighteen pounds of hair every day. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.

I am a wife to one and a mom to two humans and one cat. I have a deep and abiding love for nachos - especially the kind with the liquid cheese, like from Taco Bell (sorry). I run on less than four hours of sleep thanks to copious amounts of Diet Coke. (Note: this paragraph is not sponsored by anyone except my hungry stomach.) 

As a Navy brat, I grew up all over the country, from California and up the east coast from Florida to New England and Colorado. I currently live in Idaho, where we have lots of potatoes and windmills. 

I write character-driven contemporary romance novels, heavy on the emotional connection. I LOVE love. I love writing about broken characters who find their soul mates.
