Blog Tour Glitch for Olivia Linden & LeTeisha Newton

Blog Tour
Glitch (Corporate Hitman Vol. 1)
By Olivia Linden & LeTeisha Newton
Dec 1st – Dec 7th

Liam Gallagher, AKA Glitch, is the brain behind a trio of corporate criminals. Formerly known as one of the most notorious hackers in cyberspace, he now works to keep Hawk Global Industries one step ahead of its competitors. 

But there's a catch. Being blackmailed to do what he does best isn't how Glitch plans to spend the rest of his life, and his partners in crime feel the same way. When an old flame crosses his path unexpectedly, Glitch and company learn that betrayal is on the horizon for them. It's time to put a plan in motion and reclaim their freedom, once and for all. Things are going to get pretty nasty along the way, even a little sexy, but it's all in a day's work for a Corporate Hitman.

Olivia Linden, a native New Yorker, was raised between Queens and San Antonio, TX. Currently living in Florida with her 10 year-old son, she decided it was time to follow her dreams of becoming a full time author. Her creative itch began when her elementary school principal posted one of her stories in the halls of her school. She was only seven at the time, but old enough to understand how integral writing would be to her future. From that moment on, reading and writing became her two greatest passions.

Olivia is a newbie to the industry, but she hasn’t stopped writing since she found her literary voice all those years ago. Jaded Hearts, her first published novel, mixes her big personality, with a sexy yet humorous tone. It is her philosophy that laughter is essential to making it through even the toughest situations.

Find your passion with Jaded Hearts by Olivia Linden.

That has led to her being dubbed the Shifter Queen. Some of her series include the best-selling Claimed and Taken Series.

Release Launch for Victoria Smith & Raven St. Pierre



~ Aubrey ~
He’s not what I expected. He’s just… so much more than I imagined he’d be. Cops around here aren’t exactly honorable, and yet, I found myself trusting the one in my own backyard, quite literally the floor above me. Still, my instincts have been wrong before. My heart tells me to let him in completely, to love him completely.
But I learned to stop following my heart a long time ago.

~ Adam ~
She’s locked up tight and won’t let go. A single mother, she’s bound by the struggles she hides from the world around her. These trials do nothing but burden her, test her in the worst possible way.
But I have struggles of my own, secrets, and with their depth, they don’t just test me. They consume me and have the capability of breaking me completely, of breaking us completely.
~ Aubrey & Adam ~
Only love will help us. Only love will save us.

Interview With Stephanie Williams

Hi Stephanie thanks for being here and taking the time to answer a few questions about your latest paranormal romance With Friends Like These.

1.     With Friends Like These is a paranormal, a genre a little different for you. Why did you decide to write this particular story and create it as a paranormal?

    The characters called for a paranormal. I could have went the normal ménage route, but they weren't having it. It had to be a paranormal. And even though it's a bit of a challenge for me, it's fun to write and create a whole new world.

2.   Have you ever written a paranormal romance before or is this your first?

      No  this is my third. My first is Skinny Dipping, which might be re- released. The second which I just did an interview with the main character is Love, Transylvania Style. that's with Decadent Publishing. Both had vampires. They were light as is this one. But those just touched on the paranormal.

3. How many books are in the series? I know you created this huge world for us and you introduced some interesting characters.

      There will be three. This one, to introduce you to the characters and their problems. LOL Book Two will be about the secondary characters Pam and Vladimir. It will also focus on the battle that Seth has to face.

4.     How is With Friends Like These different from other books in this genre?

        Oh, wow. For one  they can both mate with one female and she can give birth to one child with both their DNA.  The child has the DNA genetic makeup of both males, which makes this child special and more powerful than a purebred vamp or were.

 I thought that dynamic of the story would be very interesting. There are not many stories out there like that. And since paranormal is world building, that was how I built my world.

      Also there is humor, tongue in cheek stuff and jokes. This is pretty lighthearted. No mistake though it does have serious moments. But with Roxie's friend Pam in the mix and Drake and Seth, there are some pretty funny moments

5.     I know you have written other ménage romances before but other than this being a paranormal how does it differ from your others?

       Like I mentioned earlier, it's with a vampire and werewolf, who happen to have the same soul mate. Did I mention the comedy aspect of the story?  I'll tell you a secret, paranormal scares me a bit. Sometimes it's too, too heavy. So I decided to add humor to these creatures who are normally seen as terrifying or brooding.

6.     Would you ever write a m/m romance?
       I didn't think I ever would, but here you go! LOL. Drake, the vampire and Seth the werewolf are bi-sexual, and they have some hot sex scenes. But you know what it its the story. It's not forced, it's very natural. In fact you can tell the love they have for each other from the beginning of the story.

7.     Tell us about your next projects?
       Well, I have a story called Role-Play University. It's just as the title says, there is a lot of roleplaying in the book. It's between a teacher and his colleague that used to be one of his students. She teaches at the University now.

  This books has everything, light bondage, roleplaying, sex with a stranger (again role-playing). It even has a cage!

  When my writing career will take on a different path. Not going to get into right now, but I think my fans will be happy all the same.

8.     Boxers or Briefs?

     Briefs, they outline things more. LOL!

9.     Tell your fans how you can be reached.

       I can reached at the following places!

“Veil De Arsy, you were born to be Lead Paladin, but I require your oath too. Do you accept the position of, My Lead? To protect and serve me and Arrias to the best of your abilities? To dispense My justice, provide Me with balance, and ensure My peace?”
“I so swear it.”
Our eyes held again for a moment, then I placed the mesh on his bowed head. A silent message passed between us, unsaid words used in Earth weddings, but it would have been appropriate here too.
Till death do us part.

*New Release*
Shadow Wars Homebound
by LaVerne Thompson writing as Ursula Sinclair
A New Adult Sci/fi Romance

My body being flung forward in the car from the hard braking, roused me from a sound sleep. The rain struck the car harder now, but I had no trouble making out the two men framed in the headlights, standing in the middle of the road, dressed in black, their long coats flapping out like wings behind them. I blinked, but they were still there, like something from a science fiction movie. Except this was no fiction and it sure as hell was no movie screen we watched.
The one on the right raised his arm and pointed it in our direction. I could see a blue light slowly ringing his arm. As though he charged the weapon he held, when suddenly another blue blast hit him from behind and he went flying into the air. The other man with him didn’t pause to check on his friend, but also raised his hand.
I could see it glowing bright blue. Hotter, faster. My gaze rested riveted on it.
“Out. Get out!” Veil yelled. Breaking into my fear, he opened the door and pulled me out behind him. He dragged me into a wet ditch seconds before the car exploded. He didn’t wait but kept dragging me away from the explosion.
In my shock, I could do nothing but stumble after him in the rain. “Mr. Moss,” I croaked out.
Veil screamed, “RUN!”

The Ballerina and the Fighter by Ursula Sinclair
Jaded Hearts by Olivia Linden
Gravity by Raven ST. Pierre
An Arrangement of Love by Kenya Wright
THE SPACE BETWEEN by Victoria H. Smith
When Drake started the night at his father’s campaign fundraiser, he never imagined he’d end it being conned into buying drugs on the West Side. Losing high-stakes poker has its consequences, but he’d repeatedly face them just to hear Lacey Douglas sing. Drake sees Lacey light up the stage, and he has to have her. But his intentions for being on her side of town turn out to be the reason he can’t.
Chicago native Lacey has dreams of the opera, but life has its obstacles. Lacey has come to know her hardships as part of living in the real world and accepts them fully. When Lacey meets the intense and invigorating Drake, a fire is lit inside her, unleashing those dreams again.
Two paths that should have never crossed prove to create the exact pairing the other needs. But when their worlds take time to catch up, everything they have is tested. Finding the space between the two sides that challenge them will be hard, but it’s the only place that will keep them together.
The Space Between is a new adult contemporary romance.

I travel through life dancing.
All I ever wanted to do was dance, as did my best friend. We'd made so many plans together, but one night an explosion changed it all. Only one of us survived, and I promised myself I'd succeed for us both. And I did, until an accident almost ruined my career, but Maze came back into my life when I needed him most. He pulled me out of the depths of my despair. But could I save him now?
I travel through life fighting.
It had always been Ivy; from the first moment I saw her leaping through the air like she had wings to lift her from the ground. But she was my dream, something I wanted more than anything else in my life. I promised myself I would stay away from her. Violence followed me everywhere and I tried to keep her far away from it. She was my point of illumination in the dark tumultuous world I lived in. But I could not stay away from her. Not when I knew she needed me. As much as I needed her. But could she accept me as I am?
New Adult Contemporary 18+

GRAVITY by Raven St. Pierre
In the first installment of the “Free Falling” series, the stage is set for one of the most riveting interracial love stories to grace the literary scene in quite some time. As the series spans several years, book one takes us back to where it all began – a chance meeting that reshaped the lives of two strangers who soon learn that we don’t always get to choose who we fall in love with; sometimes life chooses for us.
Samantha Kelley is stumbling through her senior year with her plans for college and life outside of Fairfax all plotted out. She’s got the perfect boyfriend, loyal friends, and a wonderful relationship with her parents. Things couldn’t be better, or so she thought. It isn’t until literally colliding with a fellow classmate, Anthony “AJ” Hahn, that she begins to question whether she’s been missing something all along…….him. Samantha’s world is shifted on its axis when she’s blindsided by feelings that she’s never experienced – feelings that make her do things that she never even thought she was capable of. Come along for this epic journey filled to the brim with passion, excitement, secret betrayals, and twists that will keep you holding your breath from beginning to end.

JADED HEARTS by Olivia Linden
24 years old, Jade Spencer's life has hit a brick wall. Haunted by the mysterious abandonment of her mother, she found it was easier to live in the shadows of someone else’s expectations. From the strict authority of her grandmother, the unwillingly guardian to Jade and her brother, to a controlling fiancé who she can't seem to please, denying her feelings has been a necessary coping mechanism. Reality has suddenly come crashing in under the strain of denying her own dreams for so long, and for once, Jade is ready to live life by her own rules.
It's time for a fresh start. Turning away from the disappointment of her past, Jade ditches her shady fiancé and packs her bags for New York City. With help from her aunt, she looks forward to her new future, her fabulous apartment in the city, a new job, and new experiences. Two fated encounters complicate her world when they both lead to unexpected and powerful emotions. She struggles with her desire to embrace these new feelings, and her habit of denying what she truly wants. In this not so classic love triangle, with a hint of mystery, Jade learns the hard way that sometimes intentions can mean everything and nothing at all, and no matter how far you run from the past, it's never too far behind.
Will she find love or will she leave a trail of jaded hearts? Love, secrets, and lies are all on the menu.

He kissed me. And not just any kiss. He kissed me like he owned me, as if he bought me last night and my orgasm was the payment. His tongue didn't explore my mouth instead it taunted me, gliding in and out between my lips in a rhythm that reminded me of hot sex. He shifted his hand to the back of my head and trapped me to him. My bag and its contents dropped to the floor. . .
What would you do for six figures?
Billionaire Chase Stone offers Jasmine a six-figure job that requires a full-time commitment in his office as well as his bed. If only she knew that before she agreed, then life would’ve been easier. It’s not that he’s unattractive. Jasmine just didn't graduate from Harvard with honors so she could be some rich guy's over paid mistress. What’s even more repulsing is that he lives with three women and wants her to be the fourth.
Not going to happen!
But Chase won't give up, and Jasmine won't give in. Someone's going to have to change because the more they meet, the more something thick, hot, and electric bridges between them, until neither can breathe or think.
