Now Live: Jagged Edge by Cara Carnes


Jagged Edge

The Arsenal, Book 1

by Cara Carnes

Genre: Contemporary, Romantic Suspense

Blurb


Mary “The Edge” Reynolds is the most sought-after back office operative around-
the creative genius pulling the ultimate bad-asses out of impossible situations.


She’s never failed on a mission, and she’s not about to fail on the most important
mission ever-keeping her newly designed security system safe. Relying on
others isn’t in her nature, but the newly formed Arsenal is her only hope for
escape when she’s kidnapped.
She is the Edge.
The Edge never breaks.
Never quits.
Dylan Mason and his brothers have put everything on the line to form The
Arsenal. When the paramilitary arena is rocked by Edge’s capture, he’ll do
whatever it takes to get the fearless operative back, but his wary heart isn’t ready
to handle the vulnerable woman buried beneath the hardened shell. Getting her
back was simple. Keeping her and her “security system” HERA out of enemy
hands is another story.
Together they must hunt down the faction behind her capture and subsequent
torture to keep HERA from becoming an unstoppable terroristic threat. What
they uncover could destroy them both.

Excerpt

“Bravo, Charlie has eyes on two packages. Repeat, two packages secured.” The gun lowered. Black marks ran below pasture green eyes and down across a firm, square jawline. Dark hair so brown it was almost black hung in disarray around the man’s handsome face.
Mary knew that face.
Relief washed through her. The sensation struck like a tsunami. Dizziness assailed her. Her stomach roiled, but she didn’t have the energy to puke.
Exfil.
She’d survived.
Two packages secured. The man’s words ricocheted through her.
No. No. No.
“Three.” She rasped the words.
Intense green eyes settled on her, then returned to Glenn, who’d stood.
“Get on your knees,” the man repeated to her fellow cellmate.
“It hurts,” he whined.
“Not telling you again.” The threat hung in the room, a fourth presence Mary suspected would overpower the man cowering beside her.
“Three,” she repeated. Her throat burned and throbbed with the effort she expended.
The man released his grip on the rifle. It settled against his side from the strap wrapped around thick, muscular shoulders. And arms. Mary trembled when he reached into a pocket and pulled out a water bottle.
Long legs ate the space between them until her tunneling gaze saw only thighs. He palmed her chin. “You’re safe now, Edge. We’ve got you.”

The Curse Worker Series by Erzabet Bishop @naughtynightspr @erzabetbishop @ginakincade #shifter #romance #vampire



Blurb:

Ball gowns and bite marks…
Mari Di Bartolo was a witch coming back to her roots in Salem. Juggling work and school, she is a woman on a mission until she is attacked one night after work and left for dead. When Mari is about to step through the veil, she is given a choice-become a vampire or fade away. She chooses life. Nevertheless, it’s not her new Sire that holds Mari’s attention, but the strange and enigmatic Fae with the golden green eyes. Full of mischief and mayhem, the night of the Vampire Ball is upon her and all that glitters may just be her teeth in the moonlight.

Darkness lurks in the shadows…
Fenris is the Captain of the Guard for the Queen of the Dark Court. For centuries he’s secured the barrier between the human world and Faery, part of a Protectorate that keeps humans blissfully ignorant of the beings hidden in their midst. But when another rogue wolf attack brings him to a crime scene, he remembers another girl with long dark hair and eyes that spoke to his soul. On a night filled with wild magic, there will be blood and some of it might just be given willingly.

*Includes Bonus: Map Of Bones, a prequel short story to Malediction.

Excerpt from Sanguine Shadows by Erzabet Bishop
Her eyes widened and her lips parted and he caught a glimpse of fang. “I…didn’t know you cared.”
“If I didn’t, why would I have convinced Roark to turn you?” He tugged her closer, the push of her breasts against his chest making it hard to concentrate on mere words. He’d known she was meant for him from the first second he’d seen her but he had to let Roark take her or risk her dying.
“You don’t know me. I was just a girl on the street. A human not worth your consideration.”
Fenris didn’t miss the hurt in her eyes. Perhaps he had been wrong leaving her alone. He’d been convinced he was right letting her assimilate unhindered into her new life. He also couldn’t fault her reasoning. She was right. They had no claim on one another, only an attraction that blazed to life in the most untenable of situations.
But she was wrong on one account. He had noticed her before-just not in a way he might have acted upon. Human and supernatural interaction was forbidden but he was unable to let her die. Not like that.
 He wasn’t able to stop thinking about her and hadn’t since that night.
“I did notice you, witchling. How could I not?” He lifted a finger and traced the side of her face, his cock hardening at the moan that slipped unbidden from her lips. “You burn inside of me. Only I couldn’t act. Not until then. But I had to save you. To do anything else…” He let his voice trail off and watched her reaction.
Mari blinked and reached forward, pressing her lips to his. “It’s like a fire, isn’t it? A fire in the blood.”

“Oh Gods, yes.”

-->What is a girl to do when everyone wants her for their own reasons?
Desiree "Dez" Osmond is that girl, and she runs. As the only wolf and tiger shifter, she keeps her scent hidden. Dez is very aware that most shifters like her don't make it past 20 before their minds can't take any more, but she has an added bonus.
Her magic keeps her safe, yet rare. As the only shifter able to make new shifters, she is a prize for many. If only she didn't tell her ex, she wouldn't be in this position.
Kane Black spent years looking for his mate, yet he could never find her. The threat of an impending alpha trying to take over his territory becomes his main focus ... until he sees her.
Will Kane be able to save his pack and Dez, or will he be stuck to watch those he loves suffer?

This is book One of the ‘A Perfect Mate Series’, but all books are written to be read as stand alones. Each book will focus on a different character. Hope you enjoy!

Excerpt:
 
-->Desiree couldn't believe the hunk of man standing behind the bar. Not only is he muscular, everywhere, but his height allows her more of him to gaze at. Watching as he readjusts himself, she feels her own panties get wet. Her core clenching with need. His black hair, shaggier on top, off sets his dark eyebrows and some of the most mesmerizing blue eyes she has ever seen. Even if his wolf didn't come forward, they were the color of a spring river hurrying to the ocean—bright with swirls of lighter and darker shades mixed in. His angular jaw and Prince Charming smile sets butterflies off in her stomach.
Going from town to town has never left Dez with many opportunities to have relationships, but fucking is one way she burns off her excess energy. Especially since her animals never get to run anymore.

Excerpt 2:


Taking a deep breath, he looks to the dance floor, but she isn't there. His wolf is panicking, causing him to sweat and start pacing. He sees two members of his pack enter. Trevor Philips and Aria Battle. Blocking his emotions so his pack mates don't pick up on them, he glances around again, still not seeing her.
"Hey, boss," Trevor says, coming up behind him.
Kane jumps, his heart in his throat, and looks at Trevor with his raised eyebrow. Please don't ask questions. Please.
Trevor shrugs and continues before Kane can even think to say anything. "I know you said take the night off, but I’d rather work if that is cool. Aria would rather hang here than at the house by herself. Everyone is sleeping. That was cool of you, by the way. We all appreciate it."
With a nod, Kane clasps Trevor's shoulder. "Thank you. You are very welcome. Feel free to close early if you want."
Walking away, heart heavy that he missed his chance with the woman, he smiles as he hears Trevor chatting up the girls at the end of the bar.
"So that is why he wanted to work."
Kane smirks and walks in to the hall, heading to his office. Abruptly, he is yanked in to an empty storage closet. Besides a couple old boxes sitting in the corner, nothing is ever kept in here.
Snarling, he cuts off abruptly when he realizes who is standing there in the dark, leaning against the wall.
"About time you showed up. I was about to get myself off and leave."
Stepping up closer, he stops and takes in a deep breath. She wants him. Just as much as he wants her. "I was always taught to never leave a lady waiting." Bringing his wolf's vision forward, he sees her smile. A smile that lights up everything around her. Glancing down, he notices she already opened her jacket to reveal her boobs, took off her pants, yet left her hood on. Not able to focus on the last part too long with a naked woman in front of him, he growls, "Maybe I should apologize."
Without waiting for a reply, he steps forward, dominating her mouth with his. He breathes in her scent, and she does the same to him. She groans, the sound vibrating through him, going straight to his dick.
Not wasting any time, she kneels and pulls him out of his pants, his dick hard and thick in her warm hand. She gazes up at him, her mouth open, waiting. Then with a quirk to her lips, she puts all of him in to her mouth, so teasing, no playing, nothing.

"Fuck," he groans.

Author Spotlight:

Welcome to our Spotlight! How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing?
I have been a writer for a long time. I remember writing my first story in high school, not including little things over the years, but an actual story. Unfortunately, the computer crashed and I lost that story, but it was definitely the start on this path. I came to writing after reading so many books and always having different stories running through my head. I remember in grade 11, school just started after summer break and the teacher asked, “Who read this summer?” After seeing a couple hands he asked “Who read over 5 books this summer?” most hands went down. After changing the number he finally asked how many books did I read that summer and I said 102. He was so happy and congratulated me and informed the class the joys of reading. At the time I didn’t care, those who knew me knew how much I read, worked, and still had fun, so I didn’t care. But it definitely shaped my writing today. I don’t think I will ever forget that moment.

How did you come up with this storyline?   
Honestly, I have issues with sleeping. I am that person who stays in that half awake half asleep stage for a while. One time that is what happened and I over saw this entire story one day before waking up. As soon as I woke up I ran to my desk to get the things I could remember down so I could make it into the story I envisioned.

What are the best and the worst aspects of writing?
The best is by far telling the stories you are so excited for and seeing the way they grow and change. The worst word be my ability to believe in my writing. I have times while writing where I just think, wow this stuff is shit. But, I push through and always get to the end and realize as an author you are biased against your own work.

What inspires you to write?
I am inspired to write by all the things I see everyday. I understand everyone has something they may not want to deal with in their life or maybe they just want to live in a little fantasy life. If I can do that, for even a short time, my goal is complete.

What are 3 of your favorite quotes from **Alpha's Surprise**?
-Her musical laughs echo around the empty room. "Don't worry. You definitely didn't hurt me," she says, still smiling. Leaning forward, she gives him a kiss.

-"Hey, boss," Anthony says, eyebrows raised. "Everything alright?"
Running a ruff hand across his stubble, he says, "Yeah. Why wouldn't it be alright?"
"Um, dude … you have to actually crack an egg in to the frying pan and turn it on for it to cook."

- Kane, expecting his wolf to growl, hears nothing. Just sees him preening around like a peacock. Kane huffs, causing another chuckle to escape Shawn's lips.
  
What would your friends say is your best quality?
I would say either my willingness to help others or the ability to work so hard. If I can help someone, even if it means ten times more work, I will try as hard as I can to help them out.

Are reader reviews important to you? Why?
Yes they are. I like to know what my readers think. I know I can’t please everyone, but if they have any constructive criticism to help me out, awesome. If they want to let me know how much they loved the series or if they want to know more about Dez, these are all things I want to know so I can plan accordingly when possible.

What do you do when you don’t write? Like in “Real Life”
I proofread and edit books and create covers and graphics. But before all that I was a private investigator and Security guard while also being a dog groomer. A pretty random mix. lol

Tell us about your other books?
Since I haven’t even been an author for a year, I don’t have many books out yet. I have a short story, Christmas Cinderella, in the Holiday Heartwarmers Anthology. It is a modern retelling of Cinderella which I plan to make into a full length novel. I also have Saved by Him, in the Billionaire Ever After Boxed set. It is about a woman finding strength after losing a lot and taking a chance on a man who isn’t who she thought he was. Then my other book is Chance Encounter, in the Falling for the Billionaire Boxed set. It is about a woman learning to trust and grow, while he learns to forgive, in hopes of a future that they both can live in.

In the cleanest city in Asia, things can still get messy.

Long Blurb

Thai entrepreneur Ploy Kaewkornwattanasakul has come to Singapore to close a deal. Ploy needs to convince tech whiz Jason Chow to license his ground-breaking innovation to her company on favorable terms. The future of her startup depends on her negotiating skill. When she meets Jason, though, she realizes she wants not just the invention, but the inventor, too.

Jason Chow is a brilliant engineer, a successful businessman and a bit of a rebel. He’s attracted to Ploy from the moment he sets eyes on her. However, he doesn’t dare respond to her advances, for fear she’ll discover his secret vice.

Ploy doesn’t understand why the sexy CEO has rejected her. She figures she’ll have to content herself with the cold comfort of a signed contract—unless the strength of Jason’s desire overwhelms his shame.

PG Excerpt

No sooner had Ploy pushed the dish away than a uniformed staff member rolled up next to her with a plastic bin of dirty utensils. It took no more than a few seconds for the employee to grab the bowl, balance it on top of a pile, wipe the table clean, and disappear.

Ploy glanced around the open space. Every table was full, most with multiple people, eating with single-minded determination. Clearly at the height of lunch hour, available tables were rare. Throughput was critical.

Probably she should vacate her table, but she didn’t like feeling pressured. Anyway, she’d just paid the equivalent of two hundred baht for a single bowl of not-very-exciting noodles. For that price, she could buy a full dinner in Bangkok. She had the right to sit here for a while.

She glanced around at the other customers in the busy, noisy hawker center, a mixture of shoppers and business people judging by their clothing. Most alternated between animated conversation and shoveling food into their mouths. Others sat glued to their phones, swiping away with one hand while manipulating chopsticks in the other. Everyone seemed to be in a hurry.

Three tables away, though, she noticed an anomaly: a solitary young man, reading a hard cover book. She couldn’t make out the title at that distance—it could have been in Chinese, for all she could tell—but whatever it was, it completely engrossed him. He was oblivious to the bustle around him, including the frequent accusatory looks he received from the cleaning staff. 

A real, printed book! Ploy was surprised to see anyone his age opting for dead trees as opposed to a touch screen.

There was nothing remarkable about the man himself. A bit taller than average for a Singaporean, slender but not skinny, he had typical Chinese features. He wore the dark pants and white shirt, sleeves rolled up, that was the common business uniform in the steamy climate. His slightly shaggy black hair fell into his eyes as he bent over the book. A pair of dark-framed glasses and a phone rested on the table next to him.

Something about his utter stillness drew her, though. Attracted her, in fact. She found his focused concentration exciting. This was a man with a powerful will, a person who had no difficulty ignoring what did not concern him. A bit of a rebel, too, given his willingness to flaunt social convention in this aggressively polite city. Like her, he wasn’t about to bow to the unreasonable demands of his inferiors.
