Blitz with Excerpt and Giveaway ~ His Baby, Her Billionaire by Sloan Storm

Title: His Baby, Her Billionaire
Author: Sloan Storm
Series: Her Billionaire Series, #1
Publication date: May 15th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Synopsis

He has billions of secrets. Me? I only have one, my baby bump, and it’s starting to show.

Dalton “The Destroyer” Maxwell.

That’s what they call him.

He’s the sexy older man, the distinguished battle-hardened SEAL turned brooding, introspective professor. There isn’t a red-blooded female in five hundred miles that wouldn’t kill to trade places with me.

It was only a fling – just a chance encounter in a faraway place. I wasn’t looking for a fairy tale ending beneath those starry skies.

But what should’ve stayed a memory didn’t. It chased me home, leading me right where it shouldn’t – his arms.

Now the consequence has me feeling like I’m cramming for an exam that I’ll never pass. The truth is, everything about us is forbidden. Nothing good can come of it.

There’s only one problem. Dalton disagrees and won’t take “no” for answer.

When he promises he’ll give it all up for me and his baby, that’s when his ten-figure truth leaves me with an impossible choice.

What have I done?

EXCERPT:

She turned her head but didn’t speak as her blonde hair fluttered in the gentle breeze of the oceanfront spray. I was close enough to catch her scent. A faint hint of lilac and sweet jasmine blended with the surf-churned air, capturing my focus and pulling me closer to the source.

I knew she heard me.

I also knew what she was probably thinking.

Couldn’t stay away huh?

Subtlety isn’t a strength of mine, on the battlefield or in the war of love.

In my hands, an arsenal of alcohol, one bottle I’d half-emptied, guzzling it down on the stroll. I hit the beer again, taking a quick pull and attempting to draw her out of her guarded silence.

“Guess that’s a no.”

It’s not like I gave a damn about the game. I doubted she did either. Then, she turned and my jaw clenched.

Easy.

Easy.

Only it fucking wouldn’t be.

The chick was an absolute knockout. She’d be right at the top of any man’s trophy shelf. And if my plan panned out, I’d be adding her to my collection long before the sun crested over the distant capri-blue swells.

Maybe it was those early years, being shipped off to military school like a dog chained up in the yard after it’d pissed the floor one too many times. Whatever the cause, the effect had a way of heightening my interest in the fairer sex long before it otherwise might have.

Point is, for as long as I could remember, only the most beautiful of women were worth the pursuit. After all, you only live once. Tales from the rocking chair are always better when you landed the big fish, not when it disappeared back to the murky depths.

Even so, I never breathed a word of my conquests over the years.

Outside the small circle of my SEAL brothers, my appetites were strictly confidential. Sometimes I wondered if my blue-blooded parents thought I might not even be straight but instead playing for the same team like my sister, Shelley.

But whatever, fuck them.

I thought for certain I’d bedded the best, had more than my fair share of beauties from one far flung part of the planet to the other.

That is, until now.

My breathing slowed. I blinked even slower and tightened my grip on the bottlenecks so hard, it felt like they might crackle into shards between my fingers.

Sunlight flared in the depths of her hazel green eyes. Lightly tanned skin and high cheekbones drew my gaze toward a set of supple, silk-smooth lips. She didn’t bother trying to contain the renegade, wind-whipped strands of her mane as they lashed about, tickling her sun-kissed complexion.

Instead of giving me the results of the game, she fixed a little smirk on her lips and came right back at me.

“Guess.”

That was all the opening I needed. I took a step her direction, the sea-dampened sand giving way under my feet.

“Better luck next time.” I lifted the bottle. “How ‘bout a consolation prize?”

She wrinkled her nose. “Thanks, but no. I’m not much of a beer drinker.”

The condensation on the neck dripped from my fingertips as I offered her the bottle once more.

“No strings.” I wiggled it. “Why waste this beautiful sunset sober?”

Just then, a wave hammered the shoreline behind her, surf thundering as it roared our direction. It was on us in no time, swirling around our legs and tugging at them like a deep sea vacuum. A shriek escaped from her lips. It didn’t sound like fear though, more like a melodic blend of whimsy and surprise.

She hadn’t meant to do it.

Or maybe she had.

I steadied myself, flexing my legs and core while she clung to me. But almost as soon as it came, the rushing current receded, leaving only her fear-filled fingers clutched tight around my biceps.

“Sorry.” She sputtered out a reedy breath and snatched her hands away, forming two white-knuckled fists.

The doe-eyed beauty stood there frozen stiff, in a defensive position with her hands partially blocking her tits. I imagined those same delicate fingers curled into the meat of my hips while I claimed her wet silk, taking her under the stars in a secluded seaside hidey hole.

NeverNow

A standalone brother’s best friend romance

Emilia Ronan has loved Reeve Sawyer since the moment she first saw him. The only problem? He views her as a little sister and nothing more.

Tall, dark and handsome, Reeve is the complete opposite to the vibrant and outspoken Emilia. Not to mention that he’s her older brother’s best friend. After years of pining over him and one humiliating rejection, she finally decides it’s time to move on, but when Reeve shows up, begging for a shot, can she really say no?

Reeve knows two things to be true in life: you work hard to get what you want and you stay away from Emilia Ronan. It’s clear he’s crossing a line, but what happens when he can no longer stay away? Hiding this relationship from his best friend is breaking every code he can imagine, yet he can’t seem to stop. But when a ghost from his past shows up, shaking his core, Reeve will have to decide what matters most: keeping secrets from Emilia or simply keeping her.

Publication date: July 10th 2020

Synopsis

You know that squirmy sensation in your gut when you have no idea what you’re doing and you’re about to screw everything up?

Yeah, that feeling.

I thought I was a good judge of character, but recent events proved me very wrong. Now, in a brilliant demonstration of my newfound caution, I’m putting all my faith in a demon—a demon who’s tried to kill me before. The squirmy feeling is making sense, right?

Unfortunately, I don’t have any other options. Ezra’s time is almost up, which means I need answers and I need them fast. So it’s time to toughen up, pack my gear, and find me one of the most illegal, reviled, and scarce mythics out there: a demon-mage summoner.

And all I have to do is follow a demon’s instructions on where to look. How could that go wrong?

Excerpt
She flung open the front door and walked out onto the porch, planting her hands on the railing and leaning into them. Sucking in a few mouthfuls of cool night air, she looked up to find Drake standing at the bottom of the stairs, his eyes reflecting the light coming from the house.
What are you doing out here?” she demanded, embarrassed she’d been caught less than composed for a second time in an hour.
I could ask you the same thing.”
She narrowed her eyes at him. You’re infuriating.”
His mouth flexed into a sinful smile. I’ve never been called that before. Stubborn. Unyielding. Hard.” Jesus. All of those things.” He climbed the steps, and she turned to face him. But never infuriating. I think most people would be too afraid to tell me that to my face.”
She darted her gaze to his mouth and let out a shuddering breath.
Why are you out of the house by yourself?”
I’m not by myself. You’re here,” she replied sweetly.
You know what I mean.”
She bristled, but kept her anger locked down. I can look after myself.”
“Your father has given me a direct order to guard your,” his eyes drifted down hungrily, “body, and I’m a real stickler for rules and order.”
She glared at him. I just bet you are, but you should know I’ll make your life a nightmare.”
His mouth curled into a mocking smile. You already do, sweetheart.”
Shaking her head, she said, I don’t need you here when I’m at home. I don’t even know why you’re still here, lurking outside the front of my house like a goddamn stalker.”
“Your father wants me with you twenty-four-seven, so you’d better get used to seeing my face.”
She didn’t miss the fact he didn’t answer her other question. I still want my privacy.”
“Bathroom and shower breaks. All other times, you’re going to think I’m glued to your ass.”
Wow. That was an interesting visual, but it wasn’t wholly unappealing.

Foster girl. Trash. That’s all I am to the world. And that’s fine. After surviving New Jersey’s foster system, I can survive anything. Even taking a dangerous job from a tall, gorgeous stranger so I can keep my little sister safe—a job that goes very, very wrong.

Suddenly I’m facing a brutal choice: a decade in jail or four years as a ward of Talonswood Reform Academy—a place with an all too perfect correction record. A place that makes bootcamp look like a spa.

But Talonswood and its cruel cadets are far more than they seem, and so are the four men who rule it. Ellis. Asher. Reese. Cassis. Powerful, impossibly beautiful men who ignite a wildfire inside me—and who will stop at nothing to make my life a living hell.

But it turns out I’m more than I seem, too. And I’m not going down without a fight

Excerpt

“Is that how vamps make themselves feel good about compelling girls into their beds?” I ask, my drink suddenly tasting sour. “‘She wanted it, otherwise my compulsion wouldn’t have worked.’”

“I wouldn’t know,” Cassis answers, stepping close enough to me that I smell his spicy perfume, his powerful body spilling like liquid night through my space. Reaching out with his finger, Cassis traces a blunt, neatly trimmed nail along my jaw, and I feel myself dampening from the unspoken suggestion alone. The tip of his tongue flickers over his teeth, and he brings his lips so close to my ear that his breath tickles my skin. “I’ve never had a female not wanting to bed me.”

“Cassis.” Ellis’s hard voice breaks between us as the male strides over with Asher, Reese following warily a few steps behind. Reese’s eyes flick to me for a moment before settling somewhere in the air above Cassis’s head. In a black suit with his dark hair slicked into a tight bun, hands clasped behind his back, he looks like a very dangerous, very expensive bodyguard. “Have you paid your respects to Count Victor yet? I think there might be a ring to be kissed or something similarly enticing.”

“Oh, I’ve plenty of enticing ideas,” Cassis says, dropping one hand casually on my hip while Ellis crosses his arms over his chest. “Few of them involving Victor, though.”

The air between the males seems to thicken.

Exchanging a quick glance with Asher, Reese steps forward. The kind of step that would send mere mortals crawling under the closest bed. “Is there a problem, gentlemen?”

“Many,” Cassis assures him.
