$FREE on 1/3/2024 – Caging Liberty (Liberating Deceit Book 1) by Nicole Cypher

Caged.

That’s the word that best describes my current predicament.

Kidnapped and taken to a private island full of hungry, depraved men, it seems like my situation can’t get any worse, but, unfortunately, I’m not sure that’s true. The mystery of how I got here reeks of betrayal, and I don’t know how much more of it I can take. It’s starting to seem like lies and deceit are all that I know.

The only crumb of comfort I have comes from one of the island residents, a man I’m told to call Mr. A.

He isn’t quite like the rest, and he gives me hope I can’t help but cling to in a place like this. I hear the rumors, learn why he keeps me at the island manor instead of taking me for himself, and still, I try to put my trust in him like he asks.

Because on an island of monsters, what choice do I have? I want to believe his intentions are pure … but will he turn out to be the biggest liar of them all?

$0.99 on 5/29/2023 – Crow by A. Zavarelli

When I walked into his club looking for a job,
I had no intention of capturing the attention of the notorious Lachlan Crow.
His reputation has been known to send a shiver down most spines.
Now the Irish mafia overlord is my new boss.
He doesn’t trust me, and I don’t trust him.
But it doesn’t matter because I have a job to do.
I can’t let him distract me.
Even if he burns hotter than the sun
And all those growly commands and dark looks he tosses around?
I won’t let them get to me.
Not. At. All.
He’s used to everyone falling in line, obeying his every command.
But I’m not one of his soldiers.
And he doesn’t know why I really needed this job.
Lying to him was supposed to be easy.
But the longer I’m near him, the harder it gets.
It doesn’t feel like a game anymore because now my heart’s on the line.
And when the web I’ve spun begins to unravel, it could destroy us both.
Now Lachlan has a choice to make.
Let me go forever…
Or burn his world to save me.

For once in my life, I’m not following orders. I’m keeping Sera.
 
And if anyone tries to take her from me, I can promise them one thing.
 
They won’t live long enough to regret it…
