A Road More Traveled by Rebekah Dodson blitz with Xpresso Book Tours

A Road More Traveled
Rebekah Dodson
Publication date: August 17th 2019
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Diana Cumberlin knows one thing: he’s coming for her, and he’s not the only one.
Fleeing a ruined marriage and a mob boss with a vendetta for revenge, Diana will do anything to protect her five-year-old daughter.
From contacting long lost lovers to family she abandoned years ago, Diana is determined to set right her past transgressions on a road more traveled.
Diana woke screaming, covered in blood, and found him laying dead by her side.
Her pink nightie was soaked through, sticky, and the room reeked of rust. Frozen in terror she stared at two wounds in the back of his head, each pouring blood. Her head pounded, and her vision was blurry. Was this even real? The warm, sap-substance all over her told her it was. The night before was a giant blank zone in her head, except for the gun. Had she fired it? She vaguely remembered the boom, how it shook in her hand, and acrid smell of gunpowder. A hangover from hell gripped her like a wicked vice, pressing the back of her neck and squeezing painfully.
She tried to get up, tried to run, but her legs dumped her by the side of the bed instead. The blood curdling scream she expelled scared even her. Did that come from her?
Scrambling in the dark for her cell phone on the nightstand, she finally grasped it and pulled it to the floor with her. Dialing 911, she barely waited for an answer before she screamed into the phone, “I’ve killed him! I’ve killed him!”
“Wake up, Diana!”
“No, no, no,” Diana murmured to the phantom telling her wake up, as she thrashed to and fro in the bed. He grasped her waist, pulling her toward him, and hissed in her ear again. “Wake up, please, baby, wake up!”
Diana’s eyes flew open and she lay stiff in his arms.
“George!” She screamed.
Her hands were curled by her sides and her legs straight out, and she couldn’t move. Her chest heaved, and she felt strangled all over again, just like every time he’d wrapped his hands right around her neck. As The remnants of that night slowly subsided, she sunk back into the mattress, this soft, deep one, and realized she wasn’t home.
Nor was it George beside her.
“Diana,” Justin’s voice pled with her again, “Di, please talk to me. You had a nightmare.”
Squeezing her eyes shut, she liked her lips and tried to control her breathing, counting to eight, holding for four, then exhaling for eight more, just like her therapist had taught her. Justin ran his hands down her arms, her waist, her thighs, and it calmed her.
For the first time, her breathing slowed, and she came back to reality much faster.
She finally turned on her side and looked at him, searching his face. “Justin,” she whispered.

Author: Mckenna James
Genre: Contemporary/Royal Romance
Release Date: August 19, 2019


Allison is carrying a secret more valuable to the royal family than gold.

The Prince’s baby is kicking in my belly, but as much as I love the man, I don’t dare let him know.
When I met Crown Prince Sebastian, he swept me off my feet with his irresistible charm and gorgeous green eyes. Not to mention those broad, sexy shoulders that would one day carry the needs of an entire country upon them.
But a powerful enemy of the Crown conspires to keep us apart, and to ensure the Prince’s reputation, I’m forced to abandon the only man I’ve ever loved.
When I look into my baby’s eyes, I see his father, and I can’t help but fall in love with the man all over again.

As soon as she won our first verbal sparring match, I knew Allison was the woman for me.
Being a Prince, it was rare for someone to stand up to me. But Allison was different. She was as strong and intelligent as she was beautiful, and I knew I had to make her mine.
We were so happy, but now that she’s disappeared, I’ll use all my resources to find her and bring her back where she belongs.

Review: Black Envelope - Rachel Angel

Black Envelope (Bad Boy Royals of Kingsbury Prep #2)

Review: Black Envelope - Book #2 Bad Boys of Kingsbury Prep Series - Rachel Angel - August 2019
After Book #1 ended with the major cliffhanger of the evil Victoria invoking the Black Envelope, I just had to grab Book #2 of the series which was available on Kindle Unlimited. This book starts with Victoria with her army crashing the school dance and declaring the Black Envelope on Tempest which gives permission to students to basically go to town on her and kill her as she is not one of them. The last person that was Black Enveloped ended up committing suicide which was Kaz's cousin Allison whom we learned that Kaz's bandmates loved and she was their "Tempest". Victoria has also declared war on the K3 which include Kaz, Hunter, and Orion - the three most popular boys and princes in the school as all three love Tempest. As those who read Book #1 will understand is that the violence and bullying in this series are quite intense and hardcore. Can Tempest and the boys remain safe and hidden from the nastiness of Victoria? Can Tempest Ryan channel her inner Tempest Storm alter-ego and fight off the bullies who come after her? Near the end of the Black Envelope, the boys take Tempest to San Fran and I loved this part as they were embracing her culture and then wham bam we were given this major twist that leaves readers going WTF, no way it can't be. Black Envelope ends on one of the most intense and frustrating ever Cliffhangers. I now can't wait for Book #3 to hurry up and be released as I want to see how the boys will explain what just happened. If you are in the mood for an intense Bullymance and Reverse Harem series then Black Envelope by Rachel Angel is the read for you.
