COVER REVEAL! The Duke of Pain (The Rakes of St. Regent's Park #4) by Karyn Gerrard @KarynGerrard #Historical #ComingSoon

 


COMING SOON! THE DUKE OF PAIN (The Rakes of St. Regent's Park #4)

by Karyn Gerrard

FROM THE AUTHOR: Book #4 of The Rakes of St. Regent's Park series, THE DUKE OF PAIN! It's finished but now has to go through editing. No idea when it will be released, (I don't impose deadlines on myself) but soon! Parts of this story were previously published years ago, I reworked and expanded to fit this series!
And bonus! I am 45,000 words in on Book 5! ~Cheers~

✅ Tortured older (40 yrs old) hero
✅ Equally tortured heroine
✅ Evil stepfather villain (think Tywin Lannister, Game of Thrones)
✅ Suspenseful shenanigans





The oldest and only remaining original member of The Rakes of St. Regent’s Park, Gideon Broyles, the Duke of Watford, has grown weary of his debauched escapades. Due to his wretched past, he often refers to himself as the Duke of Pain. He selfishly breezed through life with no thought for anything or anyone. All that changed when Gideon met Olivia Durham at an exclusive club. The passionate encounter has him reeling, as he never experienced these powerful emotions before.

Olivia also has a dark past. Hiding behind a fictitious persona, she provides a particular service to her clients. One that doesn’t involve physical intimacy, for Olivia cannot stand to be touched. In all her years at the club, no man has sparked her interest—until Gideon. Despite trying to ignore the intense feelings swirling between them, Olivia finds the darkly handsome duke hard to resist. When secrets from her past come to light, the complications become insurmountable.
There are multiple obstacles to overcome, including shared doubts about their capacity to feel—anything. For two emotionally closed-off people to find and accept enduring happiness? Gideon and Olivia must believe that love can conquer all.


The first three books are available!

There’s so much in Malcolm and Andreona’s story that I am not giving any spoilers when I reveal a snippet of their happily ever after.

The scene: It’s Medieval Scotland. The two lovers are outdoors under the canopy of a tree that has gnarled roots tumbling above ground. The horror that has plagued them the entire book has been resolved and now it’s just the two of them.

 

‘I love you,’ he said.

After all he had said and done? ‘I know.’

‘You do have me,’ he continued. ‘When your father left, you had me.’

‘I know that, too.’ She’d always known that; she had only hoped he would recognise it.

‘It hurts to love you, Andreona.’

She didn’t know what to say to that.

‘But what does it say about me that, despite the pain, I do it anyway?’

She turned in his arms to face him fully. ‘It says you love me,’ she said.

‘With all the thorns, the knowing you could betray, mistrust, or abandon me. Despite knowing there can be loss, I do.’

After hearing that her father had ordered her death, she’d felt such devastation, loss...but also simply feeling lost. Then to go from that to this joy. That’s what was piercing her now with Malcolm’s words. Simply joy. Did he not feel that way, too?

‘Love doesn’t have to hurt, Malcolm.’

‘It does when I’ve been empty for so long. It hurts because it overflows and my heart doesn’t know what to do with it all and it’s making a mess inside my chest. I have trouble breathing around you.’

This man. Their journey hadn’t been easy, but now they were here, it was the easiest thing ever. She’d have to show him how easy it was. Just as soon as she could look up at him without her tears blurring her vision. The very moment, she could talk through the little hiccups and sobs leaving her throat and chest.

‘Andreona.’

‘I’m happy, Malcolm, give me a moment.’

He curled his finger under her chin and lifted her eyes to his. She knew her nose was red, her eyes puffy from too many tears.

‘This is happiness?’ he said. ‘It doesn’t look much better than love feels.’

Oh, so many more words…but I really will spoil it if I share more!

BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Worth the Risk by Anna J. Stewart @ERomNews #Giveaway @AJStewartWriter #HarlequinHeartwarming

 

 


Worth the Risk

Butterfly Harbor Stories Book 11

by Anna J. Stewart

Genre: Clean Contemporary Romance 

She’s playing it safe…

He’s anything but!

Famous race car driver Declan Cartwright is only in Butterfly Harbor to recuperate from a devastating crash. But when food truck operator Alethea Costas literally falls into his arms, he realizes the sleepy seaside town has more to offer than he imagined. Alethea is drawn to the charming daredevil despite her cautious nature. Can he show her that taking a chance on life—and love—is worth the risk?

USA TODAY Bestselling Author

Was she ever going to get past this?

Walking to the marina with Declan after what had turned into a disastrous and rather silent breakfast felt like a punishment. She’d been determined to prove to him, to herself, that she could take chances, that she could appreciate the unexpected excitement and opportunities life presented and yet…

And yet.

She tucked her hands farther into the pockets of her sweatshirt and wondered how she could extricate herself from the rest of the day without looking like an even bigger fool than she felt. The marina stretched out before and around them, welcoming them into its embrace. She loved being here and watching the boats come and go. But rarely, if ever, did she want to be on one. What was wrong with her that she couldn’t leave the past where it belonged? Behind her.

“It occurs to me.” Declan spoke easily, so easily she had no doubt he’d been rehearsing what to say. “That we should be focusing on moving beyond acquaintances toward a more solid friendship. We really don’t know anything about each other. Other than what you’ve read about me online or heard on the news.”

“Acquaintances don’t really have much reason to delve deeper.” Alethea stopped walking. “In fact, it’s probably best if we keep things in that realm. I don’t think I should come along—”

“No.” He could have caught her arm, could have touched her in some way that would have made her want to stay with him. But he only blocked her path. “No, this is exactly why you should. I think there’s a solution to our situation.”

“Do you?” She looked at him through narrowed eyes.

“I might not know or understand a lot about you, Alethea, but I know you’re smart and I know you’re in pain. There’s also something between us. Maybe you felt it that first day. I know I did the second I touched you.” He stepped closer, but again, didn’t touch her. Simply feeling the warmth radiating off his body was enough to scatter whatever thoughts she still had in her head. “I’m a man who says what he thinks. Probably more often than I should. My sisters say I’m filterless. I think of it more as open and honest.”

Alethea ducked her head to hide her smile. She could see both sides of that argument. “Attraction doesn’t have to lead to anything.” She did not have time for, what would she call this? A romantic complication? “Being friends or even acquaintances is a good thing to be.”

The Rakes of St. Regent’s Park Series

 

In a private meeting place, in an old bank office behind Colosseum Terrace on Albany Street, a group of gentlemen attended a gathering. It had nothing to do whatsoever with financing, investments, or stocks—unless you counted moral bankruptcy. The central rules of this club: no serious attachments to anyone, and the pursuit of one’s own pleasures, especially of the carnal variety, were to be of the utmost importance.

But weariness and boredom were setting in. Along with something more worrying: loneliness. A disquiet of the soul. These bad boy peers of Victorian London were damaged, hiding their inner torture beneath a thin veneer of devil-may-care dissoluteness.

It takes an exceptional group of women to capture the hearts of such men. To see past the outer shell. The ladies are determined to live and love in their own way, with no relinquishment of their independence and no compromises. How satisfying to find that deep down, these progressive men are in total agreement.

BOOK SPOTLIGHT: Holiday Hopes by Jessica Anne Renwick @ERomNews #Giveaway #Sweet #HolidayRomance

 

 






Holiday Hopes

A Starlight Inn Novel

by Jessica Anne Renwick

Genre: Sweet Holiday Romance 

She's tethered to her past until he rescues the horse of her dreams . . .

Kelsey Simone can’t wait to have a tradition-filled family Christmas. When the vet school dropout’s sister invites her and their mom to stay at the idyllic Starlight Inn, Kelsey plans a holiday just like Grandma used to create in hopes of bringing their family together again. But she didn’t have a handsome stable manager with a Grinchy attitude on her Christmas list—nor the sick mare who reminds her of a past she’d rather forget.

Dane Clark has no time for seasonal frivolity. He has a stable to run, a lame horse to look after, and more than enough family drama to deal with. But the more the chatty guest with the pretty brown eyes and a way with horses gets under his skin, the harder it is to remember why he put himself out to pasture in the first place.

While helping the mare together, they start tearing down the fences of their pasts—until a storm hits and the Simone Family Christmas plans go awry. With the mare’s future in jeopardy, will Kelsey’s and Dane’s old wounds rear their heads, or can the warmth of Christmas melt their frosty hearts?

Holiday Hopes is the third title in the clean and wholesome Starlight Inn series. If you like flawed but hopeful heroes, charming small town romance, Christmas cheer, and family ties that sometimes bind, this is the book for you.

A Lighthouse Christmas Café
(Bluestar Island #3)
By Jennifer Faye
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 182 Pages
November 16, 2021 by Lazy Dazy Press

As Bluestar Island prepares for a very special Christmas wedding, Santa’s sleigh crashes into The Lighthouse Café, reuniting Bluestar’s beloved waitress with her former fiancé.

In this holiday novella, Darla Evans has carved out a quiet life for herself as a waitress at The Lighthouse Café. Up until this point, she’s conveniently avoided the one man who shattered her heart and her dreams. But when a wedding draws him back to the island, she knows their meetup is unavoidable.

Tech entrepreneur William “Will” Campbell has returned to his childhood home to be the best man in his father’s wedding. But first his father has a very special task for him—to restore a sleigh in time for the wedding. However, there’s not much time until Christmas. He just might need some help.

As snowflakes cover the small town of Bluestar, Will and Darla work together to make it a very special holiday wedding. With the past looming between them, will the magic of the season open their hearts and allow them to find love again?

Includes a holiday recipe for Darla’s frosted sugar cookies!

Book 1 – Love Blooms
(Hannah & Ethan)
Book 2 – Harvest Dance (Aster & Sam)
Book 3 – A Lighthouse Café Christmas (Darla & Will)
Book 4 – Rising Star (coming soon)

(Affiliate links included.)





As Will made his way through Bluestar, a few people did a doubletake when they saw him coming down the road in Sam’s pickup. They hesitated and then waved. He waved back. He hoped they didn’t notice the lack of a bright orange permit in the window and call the sheriff on him.

 

Finding Atlantic Drive too congested with golf carts, he zigzagged through town and ended up on Main Street—the road his father lived on. As he crawled down the road, he turned up the windshield wipers. When he tapped the brakes, he noticed the roads were growing slick. And Bluestar’s limited road maintenance crew hadn’t been out yet.

 

He was almost to The Lighthouse Café. He knew from his father that Darling, erm, Darla had been working there ever since she’d moved back to the island.

 

And then the familiar black wooden sign came into sight. A spotlight mounted to the lighthouse-shaped building highlighted the sign. He smiled as he took in the painted image of a red and white lighthouse and the name, The Lighthouse Café, scrolled out in white paint. Boy had he missed frequenting it.

 

Every time he passed by the café, he was tempted to step inside. In fact, he had eaten at the café but Darla was never around when he was in town visiting his father. He had a feeling it was intentional. She hadn’t forgiven him for upending their wedding plans.

 

A movement in the corner of his eye caught his attention. Someone darted out in the road. His breath hitched.

 

He pressed on the brakes. With the road growing slick, the truck didn’t slow down. His chest tightened.

 

He laid on the horn. It blew loud and long. The woman slipped. She fell right in the roadway.
