Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Carina Press
Release Date: September 12, 2017
Format: eBook
Blurb/Synopsis:

Time is running out and the enemy is at the gate.
Adam Hicks may be the rookie at Safeguard, but he’s no novice in the field. Retired from active duty after multiple tours and back fresh from a brief rest in New Zealand, he’s itching to return to action. But the challenge he hoped for arrives in an unexpected form: his sexy yet stern new partner.
The last thing Victoria Ash wants is to work with the new guy—especially one as gorgeous as Adam. His relaxed attitude about their first "easy" assignment together—setting up a private home defense network for a reclusive client—doesn’t impress her. Easy usually means trouble. She’s proved right when Adam discovers that the multiple incursions on the physical and cyber security systems aren’t just glitches. They’re under attack…and there’s a traitor in their midst.
As tension mounts, so does the attraction between Victoria and Adam. They must protect their client and the research he’s desperately trying to keep secret. Working together, they have to find the mole before their defense measures, in the fortress and online, are compromised and the deadly secrets they’ve sworn to protect are revealed.

Edition/Format: 1st Edition / Format ~ Audio & eBook
Blurb/Synopsis

I'm known as the Black Widow because the desires I hide inside are pure poison.
I was a different person once. Faith, a young wife, hoping to become a mother. My life was pleasant. Stable. It was hell. Until Killian Knight opened my eyes to a world of espionage and intrigue. He saw something in me, something I was too afraid to acknowledge. I didn't want to be excited by the danger. Didn't want to crave the wicked passion only he could provide. But I did want, so now I run. And I pay.

I never meant to corrupt her, but I'm not sorry.
After all, I'm already damned.
After four years of searching and longing, I've finally found her. Faith, the one person in the world I breathe for. She lives beneath my skin as surely as I wear proof of our transgressions inked on my body. And like the forbidden fruit that doomed us from the beginning, our end is inevitable. We lived with no regret. We loved without inhibition. We betrayed those closest to us. We killed for that love. Now...we will burn in hell together.

Exclusive Content & Excerpt w/ #Giveaway Ebb and Flow by Andrew Grey



Title: Ebb and Flow
Author: Andrew Grey
Series: Love’s Charter (Book 2)
Genre:  M/M Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press 
Release Date: Aug 18 2017
Edition/Formats Available In: eBook & Print
Blurb/Synopsis:
To achieve happiness, they’ll have to find the courage to be their own men.
As first mate on a charter fishing boat, Billy Ray meets a lot of people, but not one of them has made him as uncomfortable as Skippy—because he’s drawn to Skippy as surely as the moon pulls the tides, and he’s almost as powerless to resist. Billy Ray has spent his life denying who he is to avoid the wrath of his religious father, and he can’t allow anyone to see through his carefully built façade.
Skippy is only in town on business and will have to return to Boston once he’s through. But he doesn’t count on Billy Ray capturing his attention and touching his heart. After all, his father has certain expectations, and one of them is not him staying in Florida.
Billy Ray doesn’t realize just how much he and Skippy have in common, though. They’re both living to please their fathers instead of following their own dreams—a fact that becomes painfully obvious when they get to know each other and realize how much joy they’ve denied themselves. While they can’t change the past, they can begin a future together and make up for lost time—as long as they’re willing to face the consequences of charting their own course.

Blogging Hiatus is Now OVER

I have been away from this blog for a while and I apologize for that. I left the blog alone and abandon for a while but that is now over and you will slowly start to see this blog come back to life.  I needed time to sort through other things and I was going to use this blog for YA Only when I first started it but that is now changing you will find anything and everything you can find at my other blogs Read Between the Lines (my main blog), Twisted Sisters Book Club (ran by a group of ladies for the purpose of sharing reviews) and Nerdy Books Dragon Realm (this blog is ran with Mellena from The Book Quarry). For a moment, things got out of hand trying to cater to just one genre on this blog (it is now a rare occasion when I do YA Only Material) when there are so many genres I enjoy. I know it has been a few years since I have been away, but I never forgot my reading family and my love for books on this particular blog. I am just ready to embark on new and exciting stories, new content and authors on A Dance in the Dark. I wanted to take this time to thank everyone that has stuck around while I was gone. I really appreciate your dedication to A Dance in the Dark and I look forward to the beginning of the next chapter for this blog.

A Dance in the Dark has been redone with a new theme and header and will no longer cater to YA Only Titles. I hope you will continue to stick with me while I reinvent A Dance in the Dark:  Romance in all forms...
