Promo Post - The Need by S.L Hannah


Stood up by her boyfriend, she goes home with a woman…

Straight-laced coed Angie has never felt daring enough to…experiment. Until tonight. The skin around Heather’s lips is soft, unlike the stubble Erik lets grow in, and the night unfolds like an erotic dream, tapping into an unexplored part of Angie’s body and mind.

But Heather’s seduction turns into a nightmare when Angie wakes up tied to the bed and is told she can’t leave. Alternately seduced and tormented by her lover-turned-captor, Angie is pulled ever deeper into a twisted world of pain-for-pleasure and voyeuristic exploits. As the stakes rise, both women give into a desire for connections neither has had, and Angie’s struggle to escape becomes a bigger dilemma: Would she leave if she could?

Winner of the Golden Palm Contest for New Adult Romance, this erotic thriller dares to explore the darker side of our fantasies and their sometimes unintended consequences.

The door slides open. Heather pauses in surprise.
“Have something on your mind?” Her voice is uncertain as she walks in my direction.
“I’ve done some thinking,” I say, propping up on my elbows. I curl my fingers through the tips of my new dark hair. “I’m not sure when I’m getting out of here, so why continue to waste time?”
She towers over me and crosses her arms. One hip juts out to the side, like she won’t be convinced until she hears more.
I pull at my leggings and hike my cleavage, fighting any trepidations. It might be better if I stand up.
In my platform heels I’m almost able to meet her wary glance. “Maybe I need to embrace a different destiny.”
She sighs in disbelief.
I place my hands on her defensive stance and kiss her gently. She doesn’t respond. It’s as if my mouth—the mouth she’s been craving for nearly a week—is suddenly unremarkable to her. I understand. She’s expecting loathing and having to manipulate me into doing the things she wants.
I can’t let that stop me.
I dive in again, this time more forcefully, weaving my hands through her hair, making noises similar to those I was practicing on the bed. “Heather, I want to give you pleasure. The way you’ve given me pleasure,” I whisper in her ear.
“You’ve accused me of getting you drunk, coercing you. Just last night you hated me. Strong words for someone who now wants to bring me pleasure.”
I glide my hands along the satin of her jacket. “I knew what I wanted from the moment I saw you on the dance floor.”
She stops my hands midway down her arm and squeezes them. Hard. Reminding me of who’s in charge. “What do you know about giving a woman pleasure?”
“I may not know all the fancy tricks you do, but I know a genuine smile and the subtle gestures of permission.” I break free of her grasp and intertwine my fingers between hers. “The bow of a head, flutter of lashes, relaxing of shoulders, allowing me to try…”
Hesitantly, she drops her arms, giving me an opening.
I guide her jacket off and let it fall to the floor, not allowing our gaze to break, and then smack my lips against hers, drinking greedily from her mouth.
She breaks away to once again inspect. “What if this is just a temporary trick of the light? Something different to distract me.”
My hands wrap around her waist and slowly untuck her blouse. “Didn’t you tell me that different was good?”
The rouge begins to smear between our cheeks.
I unbutton the few buttons of her light blouse and pull it off her arms.
Her fingers glide along the edge of my leggings. I suck in my stomach more.
“Careful, Angie. I like you like this.”
I smile. It’s working. The blouse slips through my fingers like the last rays of light before sunset. I tug at her to follow me back to the bed.
This is it. My nerves are a mess. The rush of my power play is catching up to me.

Illusive by Nina Levine release day blitz

BOOK SIX IN THE BESTSELLING STORM MC SERIES by Nina Levine is LIVE!!! Check out this steamy excerpt, pick up your copy and don’t forget to enter the giveaway! Happy Release Day!
Illusive (Storm MC Series) by Nina Levine
He’s been burnt by love.
Griff Hawkins keeps his pain locked away and the ghosts of his past buried even deeper. Three years ago, he chose the Storm MC as his family and accepted the ways of their violent world. These days, he lives his life with one rule – don’t get attached to anyone but his club.
She longs to be loved.
Sophia Barnes aches to know real love, and lives her life with arms wide open, ready to embrace the possibilities that come her way.
When Griff’s past is exposed and his place in the club is jeopardised, he fights for his family the only way he knows how, regardless of the consequences.  That is, until he meets the woman who brings him to his knees, giving him something to lose.
Can they teach each other to leave the sins of the past behind or will Griff's demons dictate their future?
His strokes were slow and rhythmic, designed to work a woman to a crazed state. I should know because he was slowly taking me there. He didn’t want me to come yet, but that was getting harder and harder with each new round of pleasure. Each time a wave crashed over me, my muscles threatened to let my body collapse onto the bed. I wasn’t sure how much longer I could hold myself up. And not to reach out and touch him? That was a whole other level of how-the-fuck-will-I-make-it-through-this? He pushed another finger inside so I now had two delivering me heaven. I writhed under his touch, my muscles seriously beginning to tire. My eyes squeezed close and my fingers curled into a ball, wanting desperately to cling to something, but unable to latch onto anything the way they were tied. The orgasm that continually tried to shatter me, moved dangerously close until it reached the point where I thought I could no longer fight it. “Griff, I can’t…I can’t do this anymore.” I panted as my muscles gave way and my body dropped to the bed. His fingers left me, and in what felt like a split second, he had me flipped onto my stomach, and he’d moved so his knees were on the bed, either side of my legs. One of his hands landed on the bed beside me while he placed the other one on my back. He growled into my ear, “Do you know what happens when you don’t obey me, Sophia?” My breathing had turned into pants and my muscles were screaming at me, all while my pussy pulsed with need. “No,” I managed to get out, even though I struggled to form a thought while my mind tried to deal with all my senses at once. “When you don’t do as I say, I get to punish you, in any way I want.”

Fourth Debt by Pepper Winters blog tour

Fifth Book in the New York Times Bestselling Series.

“We’d won. We’d cut through the lies and treachery and promised an alliance that would free us both. But even as we won, we lost. We didn’t see what was coming. We didn’t know we had to plan a resurrection.”

Nila Weaver fell in love. She gifted her entire soul to a man she believed was worthy. And in the process, she destroyed herself. Three debts paid, the fourth only days away. The Debt Inheritance has almost claimed another victim.

Jethro Hawk fell in love. He let down his walls to a woman he believed was his cure. For a moment, he was free. But then he paid the ultimate price.

There is no more love. Only war. Hope is dead. Now, there is only death all around them.

**Only suitable for Dark Romance lovers.
Full length book. Six in series. Fourth Debt is 85,000 words.

FUNNY HOW LIFE plays practical jokes.
The past few days—that had to be a fucking joke, right?
No logical answer would make sense of what I’d seen, heard, and lived the past seventy-two hours.
My sister.
My best friend and twin.
This was what she’d been living with? This was how she’d been treated?
This was what she wanted to return to?
Motherfucking why? Why would she ever want to return to this insanity?
We’d been raised in a broken home, chained to an empire that absorbed us right from birth. But we were kept safe, warm, and loved. We grew up together. We shared everything.
But now…I had no fucking clue who my sister was.
But then she came to me.
A woman I never knew existed.
The most stunning creature I’d ever seen.
Only she didn’t come to me on feet or wings of an angel. She rolled into my life and demanded my help.
And for better or for worse…
       I helped her.


Daniel cackled like a mad hyena, his fingers stabbing into my bicep. Without breaking his stride, he stole me further away from the parlour and into the bowels of the house.
I didn’t want to go. I didn’t want to go anywhere with him.
“Take me back!”
He can’t be dead!
Just because he lay unmoving and bloody didn’t mean he was gone.
That’s exactly what it means.
I shook my head, dislodging those awful thoughts. He’s alive. He had to be.
I couldn’t tolerate any other answer. I refused to live in a world where evil triumphed over good. That wasn’t right—life couldn’t be that cruel.
It’s always been that way.
My mind filled with images of my mother. My father’s desolation. My broken childhood. Evil had puppeteered us from day one. Why should now be any different?
He’s not dead!
I swallowed a sob.
Please don’t be dead…
I fought harder. “Let me see him. You can’t do this!”
Daniel cackled louder. “Keep begging, Weaver. Won’t do you any good.”
He’s not dead!
I locked my knees, fighting him every step. “Stop!” Looking back the way we’d come, the door to the parlour seemed so far away—a bright beacon at the end of a festering corridor. “They were your brothers, you insane psychopath. Don’t you feel anything?!”
Please let me go to him. He has to be alive…
Please let my twin stay alive…
Let all of this be a nightmare!
I couldn’t cope with Jethro murdered; I’d go clinically insane if they killed V, too.
“I feel relief. I no longer have to put up with their simpering bullshit.” He flashed his teeth. “Cut did us all a favour.”
Cut will die.
He was evil incarnate. He deserved to die in excruciatingly painful ways.
I refuse to believe they’re dead.
“I said stop!” I wriggled harder, only succeeding in Daniel’s fingers tearing into my flesh. Goosebumps covered my skin while ice steadily froze my veins. Every second was endless torture. I couldn’t live without Jethro.
It can’t end like this!
“You won’t win, Weaver.” Daniel tugged harder. “Accept what’s fucking happened and obey me.”

Alicia's review.

Pepper Winters does it again!! She never fails to deliver. Fourth Debt starts off exactly where Third Debt ended. Nila's now at the hands of her enemies, and left unprotected by those she loves - the same as usual, right? Only this time is different. Her loved ones aren't able to help her now. They can't. At the end of Third Debt we were all left with a massive blow. 

A blow that left Nila drowning in grief. 

In Fourth Debt we see Nila break. We feel her pain. Winters words bleed out the pages and gut you. She makes you feel it all... the pain and grief, the numbness, the anger, the suffocation of finally giving up. She makes you bleed right along with her characters. 

Daniel is as twisted as always, but this time Nila has an enemy she never expected. For me it was obvious from the start what was happening. Well, I guessed most of it. But that in no way took my away my enjoyment. I was more eager to see if I was right.

I absolutely love this series. Pepper is the queen of darkness. She earns that title with every release she shares with us. 

I give the Fourth Debt - and the Indebted Series - 5 twisted stars.
