Confined Desires Blog Tour +Giveaway


Title: Confined Desires
Genre: F/F Romance
Release Date: March 27, 2021
Cover Designer: BookSmith Design


Sky’s crush on her best friend has always been unrequited… until they’re stuck in quarantine together and sparks fly. 

Sky’s high school bestie is moving back to the area and staying with her for a few weeks. Easy, right? Not when she’d held a torch for the woman since high school. The moment Mia walks through Sky’s door, those unrequited feelings return full-force. So, when a spreading virus keeps them confined in Sky’s apartment even longer, Sky is screwed.

Mia returns home after a bad breakup, but Sky is the only one who offers a safe place to land. However, the seven years they spent apart has her looking at her best friend through a different lens, attraction sparking with every inside joke, shared dinner, and cuddle on the couch.

That flare of desire fast turns physical. They can’t get enough of each other. Yet, whenever Mia tries for the "where is this going" talk, Sky dodges. Sky lost her sister in high school, and ever since, she’s become ace at keeping dates at a distance. Yet if she doesn’t manage to push past her own fears, she might lose her one shot at happiness with the woman she’s waited a lifetime for.


Mia crawled closer, the view of her lace-covered breasts even better as she virtually climbed onto Sky’s lap. She swallowed hard, hoping the woman couldn’t hear the motorcycle rev of her heart.

“I guess over the past few years?” she said, trying to distract herself from the way Mia crouched right before her, knees dug into the cushion. “Once I started getting inked, I didn’t want to stop.”

“I don’t have any myself,” Mia said, her voice slow and deliberate. “But I’ve always found tattoos sexy.”

The air may as well have evacuated the room. Mia’s dark eyes filled with curiosity and an intent Sky couldn’t quite discern, one that made her throat dry. Sky couldn’t focus on anything but the woman before her, the movie playing in the background long forgotten. Mia’s curves had gotten more pronounced with time, the freckles evident on her cheeks, and the Sagittarius pendant Sky had gotten her years ago still on a cord around her neck.

Sky reached out before she could help herself, her fingers pinching down on the hammered brass surface of the pendant. “Didn’t think you’d still have this.”

“I never take it off,” Mia said as she shifted her weight on top of Sky’s lap.

Oh hell. The reality of Mia sitting on her lap made her reel, warm legs pressing down on either side and that gorgeous body inches from her. She resisted the urge to wrap her arms around Mia’s waist and dive in for her lips the way she’d been longing to for years now.


Katherine McIntyre is a feisty chick with a big attitude despite her short stature. She writes stories featuring snarky women, ragtag crews, and men with bad attitudes—and there's an equally high chance for a passionate speech thrown into the mix. As an eternal geek and tomboy who’s always stepped to her own beat, she’s made it her mission to write stories that represent the broad spectrum of people out there, from different cultures and races to all varieties of men and women.

Demon Fire (Angel Fire #3) Release Blitz


Title: Demon Fire
Series: Angel Fire #3
Author: Marie Johnston
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: April 12, 2021


BLURB
She betrayed her kind and was exiled from her realm. When Sierra is dumped in a snowy forest before an impending blizzard, that should be the end of the newly fallen angel.

Boone wanted isolation. He wanted peace. He wanted to be left the hell alone. But a last-minute trip before he’s stormed in for days turns up more than spare wood and a rabbit in his snares. He finds an unconscious and bloody woman.

Sierra’s realm might have erased her existence, but that doesn’t mean she’s been forgotten by those who want to use her for their own means. Demons have found her, and sticking around puts Boone at risk, the one man who makes her think she might deserve more than shame.

Boone’s not going to let his fallen angel go. But going on the run with Sierra means discovering a terrifying new world, one with monsters that aren’t much different than the ones that killed his family. He’d barely survived then. Would this time end up killing them both?

EXCERPT
“Sierra. My name is Sierra.” Would he want her last name? He wouldn’t find any information on her if he searched.
But all he said was “Your memory’s intact then. How’d you get out here?”
“Where is here?”
He swore softly.
“I didn’t lose my memory,” she clarified, her voice getting stronger. The part of her that enjoyed some conversation, no matter the subject, was embarrassing. This was her punishment. She wasn’t on Earth to make friends. “I just don’t know where I am.”
“How could you not know?” His tone remained even. They could be talking about how the sun rose and set every day.
Chewing over what she was going to say, she squeezed her eyes shut. She didn’t sense malice. If he’d rescued her, he should get some answers. Starting her new life on a pile of lies wasn’t ideal, but it wasn’t like she’d thought about what was going to happen once she was dumped on Earth. She’d done everything not to think about it. It’d been her problem.
It wasn’t just her right now. It was Boone. “I don’t recall the attack or how I got here, wherever here is.”
Guilt churned in her stomach until nausea threatened to make her gag. When was the last time she’d eaten? She’d been fed regularly in her cell, awaiting her punishment, but the stress had made it hard to eat.
“The attack,” he murmured as if testing her lie for himself. Perhaps he wasn’t human if he doubted her story when she was in a mutilated heap. “But you know you were attacked.”
“Wasn’t I?” She wanted to tell him she’d been punished and he could take her back to wherever he’d found her. I betrayed my realm, got angels hurt, and got kicked out. Leave me alone. Please. But the words stuck in her throat.
“Who are you and where are you from?”
Why did lying feel like a long, treacherous trip down a road that had no turnoffs?

Not Pretending Anymore Release Blitz


Title: Not Pretending Anymore
Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 12, 2021


BLURB
Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I was starting to lose hope.
Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.
Except…uh…wrong prayer, God.
I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion...just not as my roommate.
Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.
While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined.
Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.
You could say he was persistent.
I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.
Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.
After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us.
Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous.
I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked.
Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his.
But there was one problem.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.
Those feelings we were trying to fake?
Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.

AUTHOR BIO
STRONG, BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS CHARACTERS. 

**Write something worth reading**

I'm Margaret and I'm a self-published author.

Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best-selling status on my YA/NA book - Ugly, and my YA book - Mistrust.
My last six books have been YA and I'm completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.
My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the 'perfect' woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren't just about the romance. They're about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.
