Excerpt Reveal: Pressure Point by Claire Hastings

But first, preorder your copy: https://geni.us/Pressure_Point

How high does the pressure get inside the friend zone? This goalkeeper is about to find out…

Moving to America forced Liam Daley to leave almost everything behind in Ireland – his family, his team, and his dreams about what might have been. Now on a mission to prove that he’s more than second string as a member of the Atlanta Rising Football Club, there’s only one thing distracting him: the team’s charming and quirky physical therapist, who just happens to be crushing on the hotshot rookie Dash Lazaro.

Avery Houghton is living her dream working for the Atlanta Rising. In fact, life would be perfect if she could just score a date with her dream guy. But overcoming her natural awkwardness is unlikely, and her insecurities aren’t doing her any favors either. She’s desperate for help, and who better to teach her how to attract a football star than another football star?

As Avery’s reluctant partner in crime, Liam hopes to show her that she doesn’t need to change for any man. But simply telling Avery how he really feels seems impossible. While Avery gets closer to everything she thinks she wants, Liam starts to feel the pressure. Will he be forced to pass when he’s finally ready to make a play for her heart?


“I have five brothers. I don’t know anything about girl stuff like clothes and makeup and all that.” 

“But you have a penis. One I assume works, so you can tell me if something is hot or not, right? Like, if it stands up, then I’ll know I’m on to something!”


“Well, it does work, right? Because if not, I am technically a doctor. I could help!” 

“It works fine,” he muttered, shifting uncomfortably in his seat. Nothing about this conversation should be turning him on, but just Avery mentioning his dick made it come to life and his mind start to wander to all kinds of ways he could show her just how well it worked. He had no worries about it coming to life in her presence. The bigger concern was making sure it—and he—behaved in a way that didn’t ruin their friendship. Although maybe I shouldn’t turn down your help… 

“See, then it shouldn’t be an issue!” 

He rolled his eyes, careful not to let her see. He really needed to steer this conversation away from dick. Hell, away from him in general. 

“Can’t you just ask Felicity or Talia?” 

That was it, Felicity and Talia. One of them would have the answer. 

“No! I only met Felicity Sutherland for the first time ever last night as she was educating me on womansplaining. Not to mention she’s the owner of the team! I can’t go to her and be like, ‘Hi, could you teach me how to seduce one of your players?’ And Talia…” she trailed off.

“Talia…” he prompted.

“She’s the competition.”

“Competition? Competition for what?”

“Dash. He’s all kinds of interested in her.” Her eyes fell to where her hands were resting in her lap, her thumb scratching at the chipped polish on her nails. Liam watched as she shrunk into herself, and once again, he had to fight the urge to hold her. Even if he thought her crush on Dash was dumb, he hated to see her hurting like this. He wanted to take all that hurt away and replace it with something, anything, that would make that smile of hers reappear.

“She’s not interested back,” he offered, hoping that his insider information might help cheer her up.

“Whether she is or not, she’s still what he wants. She’s…she’s pretty.” Her voice was resigned, her eyes still focused on her hands. She swallowed hard and then looked up at him. Her eyes were glassy, like her emotions were starting to take over. “And that’s all I want. To be able to find that in me. I want to be pretty.”

“You are.”

“No, I mean like pretty. Really pretty. That’s not me. I mean, I guess I’m not totally hideous. But some girls you simply look at and go ‘they’re pretty.’ And now I’ve said pretty, like, seven hundred times. I’m not that. I’m not someone you see and immediately think about how good I look. All I want is for someone to look at me across the room and think that I’m beautiful.

Her words were like a sucker punch to the gut. He hated that she felt like that. And hated even more that he couldn’t tell her exactly what he was thinking.

I look at you like that, Avery…

Release Blitz: Forged in Magical Fire by Brenda Trim

Her next trial is by fire!
Forged in Magical Fire by Brenda Trim is NOW LIVE!
Read it #free with your #KindleUnlimited subscription.

Universal: https://geni.us/MagicalFire

Guess who just discovered her Phoenix lineage? I’d rather go back to just being cursed. Hot flashes have nothing on bursting into flames…

Imps are taking over Cottlehill Wilds, wreaking havoc at every turn. Chasing them around my store with unreliable magic, while not alerting the mundies, is harder than raising twins.

To make matters worse, the target on my back has never been bigger since I killed the demon our resident psychopath summoned. Car bombs and ambush hoards? Someone really wants me out of the picture.

And wouldn’t you know that Fate has decided to mess with whatever is developing between me and Thanos just as I finally decided to open up to him.

Bad news for all the haters: it’s going to take more than a car bomb, a trip to the Underworld, and a dip in the River Lethe to get under my lightly wrinkled skin. With a top-of-the-line moisturizer and a fully charged fire extinguisher, I’ve got this too.

Preorder Blitz: Orion by Tasha Black

Orion by Tasha Black releases on September 8th!
An Arkadian Alien Mail Order Bride Romance

Available on all Platforms

The Arkadian Brides Agency is about to send Hailey to paradise.

Hailey always thought she was a member of the noble poor in Arkadia’s underworld. Her family’s farm might be struggling, but as the designated produce runner, she is reminded how lucky she is every time she brings donations to the village children’s home. But when Hailey learns that the family business isn’t what it seems, she knows she has to get away fast. The only option is the unthinkable – sell herself off as a bride to a wealthy man in the overworld to buy her family out of danger.

Orion follows the rules. It’s the only option if he wants to be elected the King’s ambassador. But when a single night of fun in the Outer Rings lands him with an unexpected heir on his doorstep, Orion must take action, and fast. Since the little one’s biological mother can’t be found, he opts to sponsor a bride from the underworld. His daughter will not be made to grow up without a mother figure. And after all, a permanent tie to Arkadia’s working class underworld could gain him essential votes. But he is determined to honor his new bride with his name and fortune, without imposing himself on her romantically.

The unlikely couple might be planning a marriage of convenience, but their shared love of little Opal brings them inexorably closer each day. When Hailey’s past threatens to catch up with her, they will be forced to face their true feelings. Will Orion sacrifice his career for love? Or will Hailey go on the run again before he gets a chance?

If you like strong women, hunky aliens, wild adventures, steamy sensual scenes, and happily-ever-afters, then you’ll love the world of Arkadia:

Her marriage was magical. Until it wasn’t…
With divorce looming, Paige MacInnes isn’t sure what to do with herself. She’s spent so much time being everything to everyone else that she’s pretty sure she’s forgotten how to just be Paige, the woman.
Maybe she’ll be able to find herself again in Magnolia Bloom…

With the help of loved ones and lifelong friends (and maybe even a sexy Scotsman), Paige will need to figure out how to preserve the legacy of the MacInnes estate–all while learning the importance of trusting her heart, the power of second chances, and ensuring her own happily ever after.

Welcome to Magnolia Bloom, where anything is possible–even an authentic Scottish castle in the magnolia groves of East Texas, brought to life not by a man’s desire, but by a woman’s determination and defiance.
