Lying in bed, I sifted through the darkness with my tired eyes, in search of the strange noise coming from…
Holy crap! It’s above me! 
The dark figure came into focus, and I let out a yelp that should’ve been a terror-filled scream. What in the name of fuck is that? I thought, feeling my entire body turn ice cold with fear.
In the yellow light of my alarm clock, I saw the monster’s face hovering over mine, its eyes pits of glowing crimson swirling with black.
Oh shit. Oh shit. What is that? I opened my mouth to finally deliver that scream, but the beast quickly slapped its sickly hand over my lips to muffle the noise.
Oh, God. Help me. He smelled like death and evil. He smelled like desolation and despair—everything bad in this world mixed together.
Knowing I was about to die, I felt my eyes begin to tear. 
“Please,” I mumbled through the gaps in its sticky fingers, the unmistakable smell of dried blood filling my nostrils. “Please don’t kill me.”
Slowly, it dipped its head, allowing me to see its face up close. 
Christ. He’s human. Or something humanlike, resembling a man covered in black soot and the stench of death. 
“Please, I’m begging you—just let me go,” I whimpered.
The man slid his hand from my mouth, studying me. Then there was a flash of something I didn’t expect in their depths: fear. 
“Save. Me,” he mumbled in a deep gargle. “Please…save…me…”
What the…? I was the one who needed saving!
“I think it’s the oth-other way around,” I stuttered and then reached for the reading lamp to my side and swung. He stopped it inches from his face, and an icy rage replaced any semblance of kinder, gentler emotions. 
He roared and then grabbed me by the hair, dragging me from my bed. 
“Let go!” I yelled, and he did. He tossed me to the floor as if I were completely weightless. 
Oh, God. He was so strong. 
I yelled for help, but no one was coming. I lived alone out in the middle of the desert. 
Looking pleased by my fear, he reached into the waistband of whatever he wore as clothing and drew a buck knife or machete or something one might use to murder an innocent twenty-six-year-old golf instructor who lived ten miles outside of Palm Springs, liked to binge on crunchy food, and owned two Jeeps, a cat that hated her, and four rescue chickens. Yeah. It was that kind of knife. A really, really big fucking knife.
“Oh, God. Please no. Please…I’m sorry,” I cried. “Whatever I did, I’m sorry!” Of course, I wasn’t sorry. I was simply terrified and wanted to live. Unfortunately, the odds were not in my favor. 
I watched in terror as the blade barreled down toward my face.

Release Blast for SHADOW by Alexa Dawn



AGE: 27

The first rule in the assassins club is simple: every job comes with a price.

Shadow has been given countless jobs since joining the club, and all of them have been carried out, no matter the price.

Killing Scarlet Daniels, the heiress to the world’s biggest electronics company, should be no different …

Or so he thought.

You are cordially invited to join the Assassins Club, but once you enter, there is no turning back.

He looks peaceful, Scarlet thought, her stomach tightening into knots. Out loud, she asked, “Do you get paid well? To kill people, I mean.” 
Shadow snapped his eyes back to her and looked at her suspiciously. 
“I’m just curious,” she added, her voice small. She was afraid she had upset him. 
His posture had stiffened, and he regarded her carefully before answering. “Sometimes.” The softness in his voice was gone. 
“I’m sorry I asked.” Scarlet grabbed her now-empty plate and took it to the sink, eager to be out of his piercing eyesight. He joined her a minute later. 
“I’m sorry,” he apologized quietly. “I’m not used to discussing my profession in such a casual tone with someone… normal.”
“It’s okay.” Scarlet shrugged, not looking at him. “I shouldn’t have pried. I’m sorry.”
Shadow nodded awkwardly. “I need to take a shower.”
Scarlet kept her back to him as she nodded, and Shadow walked away. She didn’t dare move until she heard the water running, and then she tiptoed quietly toward the front door. This was her chance. She needed to leave, and now was the time to do it. 
Unlocking the door, she slipped outside. She took a long breath to steady her nerves and stop her shaking as she slipped on the jacket she had grabbed on her way out. Then she ran down the stairs and driveway, not daring to look back. 
Following the dirt road, she kept her pace, her heart pounding in her chest and the wind roaring in her ears. She had gone about half a mile before she heard it: the sound of a car barreling down the road behind her. She ran into the trees, tears fighting their way into her eyes. 
The vehicle screeched to a stop, and she heard the unmistakable sound of a car door being slammed shut, but she didn’t stop to look. She just kept running. 
Then she saw him standing about one hundred yards in front of her. His arms were folded across his chest, and she could see a glare on his face, even from that distance. 
She skidded to a stop and began racing in the other direction, though she knew it would be useless. Shadow had at least a foot on her, and his long strides would easily catch up to her, but she kept going. 
She sensed him behind her a split second before he encircled her waist with one arm, pulling her against him. She struggled, trying to kick, elbow, or claw at any part of him she could reach. 
“Let me go! Let me go!” she screamed as she fought. 
He snaked his other arm up and grabbed around her shoulders, pulling her off the ground. It was no use. He was too strong. 
She went limp in his arms, exhausted, as sobs began to rack through her body.

“Then you better start. The Road Kingz aren’t like the Predators; they don’t give a damn that King ordered Henry and the Predators to watch out for you.”
“I don’t—”
“Shut up!” 
The sound of Jackal’s boots striding across the floor had her backing up to the wall. 
Jackal braced his hand on the wall near her head. “The only reason those men haven’t already gang raped you is because of Hennessy.”
Shocked speechless, Penni reached for her own throat. 
“Instead of using your head and bargaining with them, what did you do? You fucking told them you could identify who took off with their money and drugs!”
“How was I supposed to know?” Penni interrupted another long-winded rant then quickly changed her mind at the contemptuous sneer that reminded her of Shade when he was angry. 
“That know-it-all brother of yours should have warned you!” 
She trembled as Jackal ran his hand down the curve of her cheek, coming to a rest on the curve of her breast. 
He lowered his head, placing it next hers. “I swore I would let you get out of this mess yourself.”
“Why didn’t you?” she whispered.

Review and Giveaway ~ TEMPTATIONS OF A WALLFLOWER by Eva Leigh

Eva Leigh’s deliciously sexy Wicked Quills of London series continues as a Lady’s secret career writing erotic fiction is jeopardized by real-life romance . . .

In society circles she’s known as the Watching Wallflower—shy, quiet, and certainly never scandalous. Yet beneath Lady Sarah Frampton’s demure façade hides the mind of The Lady of Dubious Quality, author of the most titillating erotic fiction the ton has ever seen. Sarah knows discovery would lead to her ruin, but marriage—to a vicar, no less—could help protect her from slander. An especially tempting option when the clergyman in question is the handsome, intriguing Jeremy Cleland.

Tasked with unmasking London’s most scandalous author by his powerful family, Jeremy has no idea that his beautiful, innocent bride is the very woman he seeks to destroy. His mission must remain a secret, even from the new wife who stirs his deepest longings. Yet when the truth comes to light, Sarah and Jeremy’s newfound love will be tested. Will Sarah’s secret identity tear them apart or will the temptations of his wallflower wife prove too wicked to resist?

I am so glad I stumbled upon Eva Leigh's "Wicked Quill of London" series. I know it's silly, but I love cover art and it can steer me into reading the book now or placing in my TBR pile. Ms Leigh's book covers are gorgeous, in addition to the book blurbs the covers drew my attention spot on. 
Each book is so refreshing not the normally mainstream historical romance books. The series spotlights three independent, strong willed women, in the third of the series- Temptation of a Wallflower  - readers are captured immediately in a web of secrets and forbidden love. 
The characters in the previous books show up and have cameos, this book can be a stand alone, however I think the reader will benefit from reading the first two books in the series.
The storyline is of a Vicar's father who gave him an assignment of identifying the mysterious author of erotic novels. Our heroine, the daughter of a duke, comes alive when holding a quill, words flow and she creates books that many dare not to pen or read. As the story develops the two characters develop and sparks fly. Sarah is attracted to Jeremy, but as society dictates, he is beneath her station. Sarah was holding back her secret life from Jeremy, will their love stand a chance when her secret is discovered or will love prevail? I was anxious to learn if these two would say "Hell with the ton" and forge through to their own HEA. 
Intertwined in the beginning of each chapter is snippets of the character Sarah's infamous book "The Highwayman's Seduction", this reader would love to be able to read that pseudo novel, too. 😀

EVA LEIGH is the pen name of a RITA® Award-nominated romance author who writes novels chock-full of smart women and sexy men. She enjoys baking, Tweeting about boots, and listening to music from the ‘80s. Eva and her husband live in Central California.
