September 30, 2017 New Releases

Rescued from domestic abuse, Bratva princess Inessa recuperates from the latest beating in the home of Giovanni Maglione, the mafia captain of Cleveland. Learning that her husband double-crossed the Chinese triad, and they want their pound of flesh--and they're happy to take it out of Inessa--her parents ask Giovanni to marry their newly widowed daughter. The Chinese triad will be looking for a Russian mobster's wife, not the wife of an Italian mobster. Inessa agrees to this marriage of convenience which, of course, isn't so convenient. The ruse fails, which forces Giovanni into a violent and bloody mob war, because he protects what's his... and Inessa is most definitely his.

This is fourth and final book in Holly Bargo's Russian Love series.

Pure Textuality PR Blog Tour For The Duke by Katharine Ashe

The Duke

by Katharine Ashe

Devil’s Duke #3

Historical Romance

Avon Books

Publication Date
September 26, 2017

Katharine Ashe continues her lush and sensual Devil’s Duke series with a sweeping story of unbreakable love.

Six years ago, when Lady Amarantha Vale was an innocent in a foreign land and Gabriel Hume was a young naval officer, they met . . . and played with fire.

Now Gabriel is the dark lord known to society as the Devil’s Duke, a notorious recluse hidden away in a castle in the Highlands. Only Amarantha knows the truth about him, and she won’t be intimidated. He is the one man who can give her the answers she needs.

But Gabriel cannot let her learn his darkest secret. So begins a game of wit and desire that proves seduction is more satisfying—and much more wicked—the second time around…


“What’s wrong?” Trigger asked.

The softness in his voice made Ashley look up at him. Way up. The man was so tall.

She found her voice under the wave of fear gripping her. “I know you don’t mean to, but you’re scaring me.”

“Look at me, Ashley.”

She sucked in a breath, found a shred of bravery from the tatters of her will, and raised her gaze to meet his.

“I will never hurt you.”

She fell into the depths of gray and flecks of blue in his eyes and drowned in the sincerity and promise she found there. Deep down, she believed him. Part of her needed to believe him, because she needed something real to hold on to before she sank any deeper into despair and the paranoia that everyone wanted to hurt her.

She nodded. “If he finds me, he’ll kill me.”

“He’ll have to get past me first.”

Passion In Portland 2017 At The Embassy Suites

Katie and Kara entertaining themselves in the Atrium 
Vivian Wood and myself
For the third year in a row authors from around The Great Northwest and beyond converged on the Embassy Suites by the Portland Airport last Saturday to participate in this amazing book signing event. My

companions this time includes my daughter Kara and her friend Katie just as it did two years ago, only this time I am hoping that the girls don’t get sick because of me. I have spent the last year following the progress of the planning of this year’s event and was saddened that a few of the authors from the previous year’s events were no shows. I was looking forward to seeing Brady Rivers and Thia Finn but there were new friends, like Rose C. Carole (who doesn't look like someone who would write naughty books but she does, I can't wait to read one), to make and I finally got an

A.J. Downey book that I have yet to willingly put down, when I am awake that is. Thanks to this cold that insists it needs to kick my ass sleep is my constant companion or new best friend depending on how I am feeling in the moment. Katie won one of the many author raffles that we signed up for which she collected before her and Kara drug me off to Maurice’s to feed their clothes addiction, I found a Jamba Juice and waited with my A. J. Downey book.

Own the way home the girls woke me from my cat nap because they were enjoying the antics of some crazy couple in the lane next to us. Their plates indicated they were from Washington and they were clearly arguing and the driver kept speeding up and then slowing down and in general bordering on reckless. Given the amount of

traffic there is generally on the highway between Sherwood and Newberg I was surprised they hadn’t been caught by a police officer.

Pure Textuality PR Blog Tour For Acting On Impulse by Mia Sosa

After a very public breakup with a media-hungry politician, fitness trainer Tori Alvarez escapes to Aruba for rest, relaxation, and copious amounts of sex on the beach—the cocktail, that is. She vows to keep her vacation a man-free zone… but when a cute guy is seated next to her on the plane, Tori can’t resist a little harmless flirting.

Hollywood heartthrob Carter Stone underwent a dramatic physical transformation for his latest role and it’s clear his stunning seat mate doesn’t recognize the man beneath the shaggy beard and extra lean frame. Now Carter needs help rebuilding his buff physique and Tori is perfect for the job. It doesn’t hurt that she makes his pulse pound in more ways than one.

Sparks are flying, until a pesky paparazzo reveals Carter’s identity. Tori is hurt and pissed. She wants nothing to do with another man in the limelight, but she’s still got to whip him into shape. Can Carter convince Tori he’s worth the threat to her privacy that comes with dating a famous actor, or will Tori chisel him down to nothing before he even gets the chance?
