To Break A Devil by Lilah E. Noir ~ Release Blitz w/ Playlist, Excerpt & Giveaway!

Title: To Break A Devil
Author: Lilah E. Noir
Genre: Dark Bully Romance
Release Date: June 22, 2021

BLURB

She humiliated me eight years ago.
Now, she will pay for her sins.

Sage Phoenix was the bane of my existence. That tattooed tease with a short skirt and body made for sin drove me crazy from the moment I met her.

I loathed her, and yet she woke up my deepest, most shameful carnal desires.

I had a mind of logic and order until she turned the tables on me and left me behind, broken and in disgrace.

It’s a hot summer night in the city when our paths cross again.
I’m no longer the boy she seduced in high school. I grew smarter, stronger… and I have all the tools to break her.

She pushed me way too far. Once we’re all alone in her rundown tattoo parlor, Sage will have no choice but to submit to my revenge.

There is just one problem… I’m still crazy for her.

Can I resist her? Who will win the ultimate battle of wills?

This is a standalone novella with HFN, no cheating, and no cliffhanger. It’s a dark tale and a twisted second chance love story of two former high school enemies. 

The book contains steamy situations, scenes of violence and is intended for a mature audience. It is not a safe story. 

All the characters are over 18 years old.

Author’s Note: The story was originally published in 2016 under the name The Brat With The Phoenix Tattoo. It’s the same story, only with improved editing and a new title.

I would definitely heed the warning on this novella. I read a lot of dark or BDSM or bully romance. To me…there was nothing romantic about this story. I would more categorize this story as dub-consensual BDSM revenge erotica. Paul is a bit unstable and obsessed with payback against a bratty, artsy girl named Sage that he tutored in high school. If you like that type of erotica, this is a dark, titillating dubious-consent, punish the bratty girl by using BDSM elements tale. But for me…there was no romance…dark or otherwise. I found the short story entertaining for the category I mentioned.

PLAYLIST

EXCERPT

Sage was right where I wanted her.

My little victim found her voice and uttered with her seductive purr. Poor thing.

“It would have lasted if you had lasted, too, Paul. It’s not my fault you came fast.” Sage had her typical wicked smile, but she was unraveling. Her lips were wide open for a kiss, her nipples were hard as pebbles and she was raising her hips to grind them against my crotch.

Perfect.

She gasped loud in protest when I crushed my lips against hers, bit them to the bleeding point and forced her to open her mouth. I pushed my tongue in and rubbed it against hers. Muffled moans escaped her lips. Sage struggled and writhed under me but wasn’t trying hard enough to release herself. My hands found themselves on her tender, pulsing throat and I sank my nails in the back of her soft neck until she screamed. I was bruising her delicate skin. It wouldn’t take a lot to crush her, break her windpipe and catch the last breaths of her life in my mouth. Instead, I grasped her hard enough to hurt and bruise her. I deprived her of air and controlled how much she’d get as I was devouring her, sating my hunger for the taste of an untamed, captivating creature. All her sounds drowned in my rough kiss. At first, she responded with the same painful lust by sinking her teeth in my tongue and fighting for control. The lack of oxygen and my power over her took their toll, and I assumed the top position.

She tasted just like I always thought, sweet and spicy. The mild taste of whiskey on her tongue just made me go wilder and kiss her in a more ferocious way. I sucked her tongue into my mouth and breathed some air in her, thrilled to be necessary for her survival. 

When Sage grew weak in my arms, I hurried to remove my fingers off her neck and slid them down her firm breasts. It amazed me how hard her nipples were, like two little pieces of rock I’d soon torture, just like the rest of her sensual body. That little witch needed to learn her place. She wouldn’t have any say in what would happen to her, that I’d have no qualms in taking her and treating her like my private toy. Sage would be my whore tonight. 

I played with her tender tits and drank in what I’ve longed for all these years. Then, with one smooth and precise movement I ripped her tank top open, shredding it to strips of ruined fabric. The kiss was intense enough to make my head spin. That was the perfect moment to release her luscious, roughened and bleeding lips and let her scream out.

EARLY REVIEWS FOR TO BREAK A DEVIL

★★★★★ This is a very dark and sizzling story which is basically a revenge scene that had been building for years. Well-written, well-edited, page-turner steamy story.

★★★★★ “The undeniable attraction between the two. It is like fighting fire with fire.”

★★★★ “I was pleasantly surprised by this novella’s character development and original plot, and would recommend it, particularly to anyone who is into BDSM.”

★★★★ “Straight up exactly what I want when I want dark bully/erotica. If you’re looking for a book to work you up with dark and to let your body enjoy the fruits of intense se* that makes you feel like you ran 50 miles than you are going to enjoy Paul and Sage.”

Falling for the Villain by M. Robinson & Rachel Van Dyken ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review!

From Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson & #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken comes a full length, standalone dark romance novel.

“Play for me, Juliet…”

Those four words whispered in my ear again and again until I craved what I used to fear.
Such a simple demand from my captor—the man who stole me and refused to tell me why he wouldn’t let me go.

I was his.

He made me need him, just as much as he needed me.
I broke all the rules of the golden prison he put me in.  

During the day he ruled his dark, seedy world.
His subjects and me.

During the night—he bowed before my feet.  

Have you ever wondered what happened to the villains in all the fairy tales you read?
You’ll soon find out.

It all started when he kidnapped me and made me his pet.
And it all ended with me…

Calling him master.    

*This story is not for the faint of heart and may be uncomfortable for some readers. But, then again, stepping outside of your comfort zone may be exactly the thing you need…

This was a dark, twisted, angsty book for sure. Donovan is a sadist that trains women to be pets for wealthy and sometimes depraved men. His past is broken and shaped him into what he is today. Juliet is a sassy piano player and daughter of a mob boss. Donovan knows immediately he has to have her and kidnaps her. He tries to break her to build her back into what he wants. At times, I felt torn about this because it seemed to be more about punishment than anything else and Stockholm Syndrome definitely starts to set in. This plot in the story saddened me because Juliet is such a strong woman but has been broken so badly by Donovan it’s hard to watch at times.

Between past traumas and feelings cropping up, this story had angst, suspense, twists and was insanely dark. There were many sexy scenes with some cringeworthy. I wanted them to have genuine feelings for each other but I had a hard time with Donovan. He does try to redeem himself but I’m not sure if it’s enough to make me his fan. This one left me with some mixed feelings at the end!

Good Intentions by Ella Frank ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.5 Star Review!

Good Intentions, the all-new, emotional and tempting romance and the conclusion to the Intentions Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

Gabriel Romero made me hungry for things I’d never wanted,

and starved of the things I didn’t think I’d ever need. 

Until now…

Until him…

I was never the man who believed in love, romance, or happily ever afters. I was married to my work, and happy to be that way. Until one night, not too long ago, when an audacious young man lied his way into my life and showed me what I’d been missing.

Bold and sexy, with a face that could melt through the iciest of exteriors, Gabriel Romero is the one factor I never saw coming. There are so many reasons we shouldn’t work—my age, his, our career goals in life—and yet we are drawn together by a passion for music, and each other, that neither of us can deny.

I’ve always been the one to think things through, to follow my head instead of my heart. But if I don’t open myself to what’s possible, instead of thinking of all the ways this seems impossible, I might miss out on the best thing that has ever happened to me.

So I’m taking a chance, and laying myself at his mercy, opening my heart with nothing but good intentions. Only time will tell if Gabriel Romero decides to let me back in.

Good Intentions is the second book in the Intentions Duet.

HOLY COW! This author leaves me wanting more…

This is book two, and book one left me hanging and desperately wanting more. Book two gave me so much more…but still left me hanging. I don’t know how she does it, but she’s good at it. The drama continues to happen between Beau and Jane. The HOTNESS also continues. Beau asks Jane not to leave him. Paige, the little girl Jane is nannying for, has become close to Jane as well. Things begin to happen that put Jane in danger. The detective has thrown out some suspicion Jane could possibly be the one who set the house fire.

There are SO many unanswered questions that I can’t wait to see how this all plays out. I have never cheered for a couple more than I have cheered for Jane to find her prince charming in Beau. But from what it is looking like right now…that may not happen.

EXCERPT

“Let me guess,” she says, her voice quivering. “It’s not me, it’s you.”

“Correct.” It’s not her. She’s beautiful and smart and kind. She has a whole life ahead of her. Meanwhile I’m a selfish bastard who used her. The fire was a disaster in ten different ways, but there is one small, shining upside. It was also a wake-up call that I desperately needed.

She manages a wry, watery smile. “Don’t worry, Beau. I hear you loud and clear. And I respect your boundaries. I’m not going to take advantage of you.”

Oh the fucking irony. And worse, she knows it. She knows that I was using her. It’s a little joke at my expense, and I deserve it. What can I say to that sharp awareness? What can I do but fall to my knees and beg her forgiveness? I won’t be able to last a day without her in my arms. I won’t be able to watch her without wanting her.

“Jane. I’m dangerous to you. Look at what happened to Emily. Now look at you, almost burned to a crisp in a fire, small and fragile in a hospital bed—because of me.” Her brow furrows, and I know she means to argue with me. “God, I’m not even good for Paige. You know it. You said it yourself. I snap at her. I argue with her. I’m the problem here.”

Her eyes fill with tears. “You love me. You said you love me.”

It would be better to deny it, to claim I didn’t mean it, but I can’t quite bring myself to lie to her that way. “It doesn’t matter. My love is dangerous.”

Playing by his Rules by Erika Wilde ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.5 Star Review & Excerpt!

Playing by his Rules, an all new smoking hot standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Erika Wilde is available now!

All he wants is one week of her complete surrender . . .

If someone would have asked Madison Corbin what she wanted to be when she grew up, her answer wouldn’t have been an escort. But desperate times called for desperate measures, and when she finds herself being laid off from her job and in over her head in a debt that isn’t of her own making, being a man’s companion for the night—no sex involved—seems like a quick, easy way to pay off the bills that are piling up.

But she hadn’t counted on Rick Dunne, a breathtakingly gorgeous, sexy man who seems to know her deepest, most intimate fantasies without her even speaking them. He’s a gentleman in public and a hot as sin dominant in the bedroom. And he’s the one man who is able to fulfill all those dirty desires she’d imagined for years.

Her life is currently a mess, the kind that no man wants to take on his own. So, when Rick offers her a staggering amount to spend the week with him while he’s on his business trip, playing by his rules, she agrees. Their temporary arrangement was only supposed to be about physical pleasure, nothing more, and they’d go their separate ways . . . Except Madison could never have anticipated the lengths that Rick would go to make her completely his.

This book is about Rick. He is sent to Vegas to give a presentation to a very large client. While he is there, his friends set it up for him to take advantage of a club. The same type of club they all belong to at home…a sex club. He needs to blow off some steam so heads out to see what this club is all about.

Madison. What can I say? She has been dealt a crap hand here in Vegas. She recently found out that her Dad had taken out tons of credit in her an her sister’s names. Not only that but she was just laid off from her job with no prospects on the horizon. Her friend tells her how to make some quick cash being an escort. You make the rules and decide how far it goes. Madison is only willing to be a simple escort…to accompany someone and offer her time and companionship but nothing else. She hates to do this but she has no other choice with all her mounting bills adding up.

Rick spots her from a mile away, and they make an immediate connection. He actually helps her out of a potentially bad situation, and Madison is so happy to have met Rick her first night. She decides that this hot, sweet guy may be a rule changer in her new job.

After a hot steamy, steamy night, can she keep it strictly business? Can he? It was a quick moving, scorching hot little book in this series and look forward to reading more in it!

Excerpt

Madison shifted restlessly on her bare feet.  “When are you going to kiss me?” she blurted out, and immediately felt her face heat at her brazen question.  God, she wasn’t normally so impetuous—she’d always been a think before you act kind of girl—and she blamed this hot, sexy man for making her so impulsive.   

Rick slowly moved toward her, the beat of her heart increasing with every step he took closer.  “Impatient little thing, aren’t you?”

“No,” she lied, and crossed her arms over her chest, which only served to lift her breasts higher, and he noticed.  “I just want to know when to expect it.”

Amusement flickered in his eyes as she stopped right in front of her, the scent of his cologne and the heat of his body tempting her to reach out and touch him.  She refrained, but he didn’t.

Lifting a hand, he grasped a strand of her hair and twirled it around his long finger, ensnaring her in more than just that one way.  “Well, knowing when it’s going to happen takes all the fun out of the growing anticipation of waiting and wondering and thinking about it.  And, since it’s just one kiss, I want to make the most of it.”

He gave her hair what should have been a playful tug, but the tingling pull on her scalp seemed to connect directly to her nipples, and she had to swallow back another one of those pleasurable, orgasmic moans.  God, this man was dangerous to her libido, making her want things that she’d only encountered in the erotic books she read.

He leaned a bit closer–almost near enough to capture her mouth with his, his breath a warm caress across her cheek.  “But don’t worry, I’ll let you know when I decide I want to kiss you before my lips touch yours.  I won’t kiss you without you telling me it’s what you want, too.”

He released her hair and stepped back like a gentleman, and she nearly took a step forward to chase him down and tell him she wanted the kiss now.  Somehow, she managed to stop herself from being such a shameless hussy, but this man seemed to know her internal struggle, her battle between red-hot desire and being the quintessential good girl, and he reveled in it.  He’d done nothing to break the rules she’d set for the night . . . so why did she feel the slightest twinge of disappointment?
