As authors we are always trying to find ways to give back. Anthologies are a great way to unite indie and traditionally published authors for a worthy cause. In this anthology you will get a combination of rom-com, new adult contemporary romance, and even a little suspense short stories with law enforcement heroes and heroines.

Cop Tales is a limited release anthology to raise funds for the Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP). We back the blue and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for support in this cause.

NOTE (not included in book blurb): 100% of the online sale proceeds for six months (e-book and print) will be donated directly to the ODMP. If any reader wants to donate beyond purchasing the anthology, please visit www.odmp.org. Your donation is tax deductible in the US. I don’t know about internationally.

Chance

The Wheel of Fortune (Card 10): Things tend to go in cycles. Good times then bad.

Do you know what it’s like to lose everything? I do.

Eight years ago, Jessa Lynn Madison and the title ‘Best Snowboarder in the US’ were both mine.

And then she betrayed me and the mountain had followed suit. 

No matter how much I drank, the truth was hard to swallow when it meant choking on my pride.

And no matter how much I screwed, the truth was that I still wanted her.

Anger. Rage. They don’t even begin to describe how I feel.

I was never going to be able to compete again, 

but life had given me the perfect opportunity to have Jessa. 

And to break her.

Misery loves company. And Jessa was about to be my company.

Jessa

The Fool (Card 0): A symbol of potential and new beginnings.

All I wanted was a fresh start in the town I once called home.

Too bad home was littered with memories of him. Chance Ryder. 

The man I’d loved. The man I’d left. 

The man who was now my patient. And my roommate.

I know he wants to use me. I know he wants to hurt me.

But I also know that I can’t stop myself from wanting him.

And wanting him has always been my downfall.

Now all I can think about is how to tell him the truth and beg his forgiveness.

I, of all people, should know that explanations and apologies won’t matter.

When it comes to Chance, he’ll hold onto his pride

like he should be holding onto me.


Cover Reveal- Work for It By Ashley Bostock


Title: Work for It (Irresistible Billionaires Book 3)

Author: Ashley Bostock

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date:January 22, 2019

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Billionaire CEO Dylan Truex was burnt out. Not from his empire, DIRTY GAINS, but from his celebrity status. Having the body he did as well as the motivation to lead the pack, was no longer all it was cracked up to be. Heading to Estes Park for a two-week getaway all by himself sounded like the perfect solution to all his problems. Until he arrives and finds that the condo has been double-booked. Sharing the condo, he can handle. Cute blondie tempting him to break his no-sex bet, err…

When Lina Armstrong runs away from her old life—walking out on her job and leaving behind her family—the best thing she can do is reclaim her true self. No boss. No family. No men. No anybody. Then comes handsome stranger Dylan Truman threatening to wreck her alone time at Pine Lake. Yeah, he’s cute and all, but so are the elk and that doesn’t mean she wants to share a condo with them.

When the blizzard hits and whiteout conditions make it unsafe for either of them to go anywhere, they are forced to stay put in the condo together. What started off as a bad thing, starts to turn into something good. Two weeks with this cocky hard body? Alright, if she must.

It shouldn’t be a problem as long as she can keep her hands to herself and stop imagining if his tongue has as much stamina as the rest of his body.

Cover Reveal- Bloodjinn By Laura Catherine


Title: Bloodjinn (Djinn #3)

Author: Laura Catherine

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: December 22, 2018

Cover Designer: Lizzie Zhou

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Heartbreak and looking for escape.

Kyra has given up on everything. Alec betrayed her. Will is dead. Her and her father are imprisoned by the Djinn awaiting a sentence from High King Tibal who is even more ruthless than Ivan.

When a mysterious woman gives her the choice to start a rebellion for the Guardjinn, Kyra is less than interested in losing more people she cares about. Instead she chooses to escape with her parents to live her old life among the humans.​

Bloodlust and civil war.​

When Kyra realises Will might still be alive she snaps to her senses and heads halfway across the world in search of De Morte, the Blooder City.

Along the way, Kyra will truely begin to understand what it means to be a Bloodjinn; part Djinn and part Blooder. There is a darkness within her growing with every drop of blood she tastes, but Kyra needs more powers if she is going to save Will and start a civil war among the Djinn.

 

River’s gaze was hard, which contrasted with her soft features. Whatever was on her mind weighed heavily on her.

“My name is River Constance. I am a member of the High King’s council and his advisor.”

I leaned my head on my hand, wincing at the throbbing pain in my wrist. “I know.”

“What you don’t know is that I am also the leader of a resistance group within my compound. A group that wishes to overthrow the High King.”

I was speechless. That was the last thing I was expecting her to tell me. There was a resistance in the first compound? Was she tricking me? Was this a test? But then I considered, why wouldn’t there be people who opposed the High King, since everyone had different opinions?

“Why would you want to overthrow the High King?” I asked, eyeing River cautiously.

“Isn’t it obvious?” River replied. “He’s a tyrant. He abuses his power and rules with a clouded view of the world. You surely understand. I heard your words during the interrogation and the sentencing. You understand we can no longer live as we once did. The Djinn will die out if things do not change. We are also supportive of the Guardjinn being disbanded. Queen Celeste is not the only person who felt this way. She was just able to express her views without fear of repercussions. Things are different in the first compound. The High King is a strict and unforgiving man. The freedom you have in this compound is something I have never experienced before.”

River let out a breath as though the air in the room was somehow fresher and clearer.

“Suppose I believe your story,” I said carefully, “what do you want from me?”

River stepped closer, her eyes widening. “We want your help,” she said. “The High King believes you to be a danger to the Djinn, but I believe you are our salvation. You can bring about the change we so desperately desire. You can help us take down Tibal.”

I frowned. “You want me to kill the High King? Do you have any idea what the repercussions of that would be?”

“It is all I’ve thought about for years,” she replied. “His death will split the compound apart.”

I leaned forward. “You want me to help you start a civil war? Are you mad? You already have enough to handle with the Blooders attacking.”

“That is precisely why we need to overthrow the High King now before it’s too late to fight the Blooders.”

River spoke with passion, and I was inclined to believe her story because why else would she come days before I was supposed to die? Unless she was trying to see if I’d mention any names of Djinn that would side against the High King, but she hadn’t asked for anyone else’s help but mine.

“I can’t help you,” I said, leaning back. “I’m not going to be the face of a civil war. People wouldn’t trust me because of what I am, not to mention I have no interest in getting involved anymore. The last time I tried to help someone I … someone I loved died.”
