My life was finally on track.
Until my bosss brother transferred to our office.

From the minute I met the broody, handsome, and infuriating Aiden Bronson, he was destroying all of my carefully made plans.

First, he hijacked my Uber. Then, he caused an accident that left me out of work for months.

Except, the disastrous day we spent together turned into the most fun day of my life.

And now, I cant stop thinking about him. And that kiss…

I doubt he feels the same about me, and even if he did, any future together is hopeless.

Hes not allowed to date employees.
And without any family to fall back on, I cant risk my livelihood.

But when he becomes my new boss, and we get trapped together in a beach house, I dont know if I can resist risking it all.

THE NEW BILLIONAIRE BOSS is book one of the Bronson Billionaire Romance Series, but can be read as a complete standalone! Guaranteed to have you swooning and breathless. It includes a fierce and funny heroine and a charming, playboy hero.

EXCERPT:

Aiden

I stared at the woman standing outside of the Uber. She looked pissed. But I needed to get to our West Coast corporate retreat.

She opened my door, which took me by surprise. Did she have some type of mental imbalance, or was she on drugs?

She opened her mouth to speak, but her phone beeped. She looked down at her phone and then turned to the driver. You canceled my ride!”

The driver shrugged. He offered me $100.”

She stomped her foot on the ground and threw up her hands. Youd already started the meter!”

Damn. I thought she was just keeping the man waiting. I didnt know she was paying him to wait. That meant I was the asshole here.

I sighed. Time to turn on the charm.

I stared directly into her green eyes. Please forgive me.” I saw her lips part just a little. Yup, she wanted me.

I shot her a flirty smile, reached into my wallet, and pulled out a $100 bill. Take this, for what was already on the meter, and get yourself breakfast on me.”

She didnt reach for the money. I dont need your money. I need this car. So get the hell out.”

Seriously? Judging from her big box store athletic wear, which I had to admit hugged her figure well, I couldnt believe she didnt need, or at least want, the money.

Listen, lady, Ill come back for you,” the Uber driver said.

Her head snapped to face the driver. Ill deal with you in a minute.”

I wanted to be contrite, even though I really didnt have the patience for this. Get in the car, and Ill pay him to take you wherever you want to go after Im done.”

She folded her arms across her chest. How about you go wherever youre going after Im done?”

I dont have time for this.” Yes, I was in the wrong, but the driver wanted my business more than hers. Just as I was about to lean forward to tell the driver to leave, she swung the door open wide.

I stared at her. What do you think youre doing?”

She tried to push her way into the backseat. I dont have time for this either!”

I refused to budge.

She attempted to push me across the seat with her little body, and when she didnt succeed, she opted to climb over me.

Her butt grazed my lap as she took the place next to me in the backseat.

The move was insane, but it turned me on. I am a dude, after all.

Her long, light brown ponytail swayed back and forth as she panted from the effort of forcing her way into the backseat with me. If I wasnt in such a hurry, Id think she was kind of cute. Not my regular type and possibly insane, but definitely cute.

Take me to the Malibu Retreat Center,” she instructed the driver.

The one just up the hill?” the driver asked her.

She refused to even look in my direction. Yes, itll only take five minutes. Then you can take him to his Assholes Anonymous meeting or wherever hes going.”

I couldnt help but smile. She worked for my fathers company. Wouldnt little Miss Angry Pants be so surprised!

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

We were going to look for the ghost house.” Dom adjusted the faded NY Yankees baseball cap he wore. But Morgan has to be home by five.”

Well never make it there and back in time, and we never leave a man behind,” Josh added, dropping a backpack on the grass next to him. It landed with a clunk.

Ghost house?” I repeated, picturing a boarded-up, decrepit building built during the Civil War or something.

Havent you heard the stories?” Josh asked, eyes wide in amazement.

I shook my head.

Dom walked over to our open garage, grabbed my skateboard out of one of the boxes, and said, Its known as the disappearing house.”

My bewildered gaze slithered from Dom to Josh, finally coming to a stop on Morgan as I tried to decide if they were crazy.

If the house is invisible, how do you expect to find it?” I asked.

Morgan sat on the stoop next to me. Its not always invisible. My brothers saw it once. They said its a big house with a long porch. It vanished before they could set foot on the first step, and Im glad, too.”

Why? What would have happened if they were on the steps?” I asked. Not because I believed an old ghost story had any truth to it, but I was curious to know what shed say.

Morgan had to pick her jaw up from the walkway before she could answer, and when she did her voice came out in a high-pitched squeak. If they had been on the porch or worse—” she swallowed loudly “—inside, they would have disappeared with it.”

Thats a myth,” Dom said as he rode the skateboard down the driveway.

It is not!” Morgan shot back.

Come on, how is a solid person going to disappear?” Dom asked from the sidewalk.

The same way the house does! Duh!” Morgan shook her head as if Dom was the loony one.

Isnt the whole thing…um…you know…a myth?” I asked. There were no such things as ghosts, and buildings didnt just go poof and disappear into thin air. I mean, you dont really believe in—”

The house is real, dude,” Josh said.

And were going inside of it.” Dom did an Ollie, lifting all wheels of the skateboard off the ground.

No, were not!” Morgan shook her head as if that reinforced what shed said. A dark auburn curl snuck out from under her baseball cap. We are,” Josh confirmed. I was with Dom and Josh. Not the part about believing in disappearing houses, but if one happened to exist and I managed to find it, Id want to see inside of it, too.

Let Me Fly by A.C. Pontone #Blitz

 

Let Me Fly
A.C. Pontone
(Wild Wings, #1)
Publication date: September 9th 2021
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Reverse Harem, Romance

My name is Isabelle Dark, and my life sucks. In exactly ten days, four hours, fifty-seven minutes, and fifteen seconds, I will cease to exist.
Okay, maybe thats a bit dramatic, but what would you say if you were being forced to marry a man you despise?
Exactly. I have to find a way to escape.
Up to now Ive spent my life in hiding. There arent any other options for those like me: Im a Nephilim, a half-breed. The only choice I have is whether to be killed by the Shadows or to remain here, hidden among the Hollows.
So I made my decision: I would rather risk my life fighting to be free than continue to struggle to survive in the home I grew up in.
My plan was to go to college and live a normal life, but somehow I ended up in a school for Shadows where everyone hates me. Plus, Ive been assigned seven angels as my bodyguards. Jailers would be a more appropriate word.
The tension growing between us is impossible to deny. Sparks are starting to fly. Theyre beginning to get under my skin and . . .
What do I do now?
My name is Isabelle Dark. Im a Nephilim and Im screwed.

Warning: This book is a full-length reverse-harem romance. It contains adult themes, MM scenes, foul language and some violence. If, however, youre in the market for a novel full of sexy angels and a hot-blooded main character, youve found your next read.
Let Me Fly is the first book in the Wild Wings series and cannot be read as a standalone.
Intended for 18+ readers.

Goodreads / Amazon

EXCERPT:

My name is Isabelle Dark and my life sucks. In exactly ten days, four hours, fifty-seven minutes, and fifteen seconds, I will cease to exist.

Why do I say this? Well, all you need to know is that Ive been forced to live in the shadows. I have to struggle to survive in my own home. Theres no other choice for someone like me. Im a half-breed, which means that my only alternatives are to be killed by the Shadows or stay hidden here, among the Hollows. As I said, it sucks!

I shake my head as a hysterical laugh forces its way out of my throat. I can tell the woman behind me is frowning, her mouth tightly closed, her lips pressed together. Stay still,” she orders me. Hold your breath and suck your belly in!”

My jaw goes rigid, but I remain silent.

Dont make that face!” she mutters. You need to eat less. Youre not thin enough!”

Fuck you, I think, as my hands ball into fists and I try to keep myself from punching her in the face. I hate her. I hate everything about her. I hate her pointy nose, her high cheekbones, her oval face, her gray eyes that have no spark of light in them, her brown hair thats always pulled back in a perfect chignon. I hate her long skirt and dumb white shirt buttoned up so tightly under er chin. I dont understand how she doesnt choke. Why cant she choke?

With a sigh I regard the image in the mirror again. Who are you? I struggle to hold back the tears. I dont want to cry, not while the woman is looking at me.

She yanks the laces of my dress even tighter, so tight I can barely breathe. Who are you? I ask my reflection again. The person in the mirror is a stranger. Shes not wearing my usual outfit of ripped jeans and a mans T-shirt. Her blond hair frames her face, falling in soft waves on the lace bodice of the dress, which is peekaboo, with visible stays. It extends to her hips, emphasizing her narrow waist. The full, soft skirt falls to her feet. The pure white of the dress blends in with the white skin of the girl in the mirror.

I heave a sigh, and the sad blue eyes in the glass regard me. Theyre alien to me, but somehow terribly familiar at the same time.

Who are you?

Edward certainly wont want a fat wife!” The bitch tightens the ribbons of the bodice even more. Im suffocating.

Fuck you,” I mutter, this time audibly. I want her to hear. She ignores me as she continues to fit me with my wedding dress. There are now only ten days, four hours, fifty minutes, and thirty seconds remaining until I say I do.

But its not going to happen. Less than three hours from now Im going to escape. I have to, if I want to survive—or at least die free. What will become of me when I leave this damned prison, though? What will become of you? I silently ask the girl reflected in the mirror.
