#Giveaway Ebook of DIRTY by Scott Hildreth

Enter below for a chance to win Scott Hildreth's Dirty!

Lex - Monsters come in all shapes and sizes.

Mine came in the form of four Calle 18 members, southern California’s most ruthless drug gang.

They kidnapped me, locked me in a room, and ripped the life from my very soul. The things that happened to me were unimaginable, even in my most vile of nightmares. Then, one night he opened the door.

His name is Cholo and he slays monsters.

Cholo - Monsters come in all shapes and sizes.

Mine came in the form of fearing failure. So, I made sure everything I did, I did better than any other man. The only thing I didn't do well? Commit to a woman.

The son of a Hispanic mother and an Irish father, I grew up known as a ‘half breed’. The Hispanics saw me as white and the white’s called me a Beaner. Soon, I found a place where I fit in, and fit in well.

With the Filthy Fuckers MC.

I had no idea that one night I'd stumble upon a room filled with kidnapped women, or that one of them would steal my heart.

She did, though. Her name is Lex and she saved me from my monsters.

DIRTY is a stand-alone MC Romance with no cheating, no sex outside the relationship, and no cliff hanger. It has an HEA, and is book III of a series. Although no other book is required to tell this tale, it is recommended that you read HARD and ROUGH to fully understand the ancillary characters.

A Twisted Hearts Love Story, #2

Before he became Tony Delaney’s right-hand man, Tick lost his dreams of being happy. After ten years, he is still haunted by the sudden loss of his fiancée and unborn son. Going through life thinking he doesn’t deserve happiness, his nights become filled with endless one-night stands. That is until he rescues Cyma. As quickly as he saves her, she walks out of his life, disappearing into the crowded Manhattan street. Days later, he accidentally runs into her at a party and his attraction grows stronger.

Cyma’s hard life has been nothing but pain and sorrow. She labels the charismatic stranger who saved her as a knight in shining armor. A chance meeting days later and Tick turns her world upside down. She's scared to hold on to the fairy-tale dream of being with him, but she's even more afraid to let him go.

Can these two somehow heal each other? Will their love survive all of the obstacles that are thrown their way?

Q & A with Autumn Sand about Mayhem!

Tell us about Mayhem.
Mayhem is the love story of Dante and Cyma. The two of them are broken but somehow find each other and help each other to heal. It’s not your typical mafia love story. It is more about family and finding love.

What initially inspired you to write Mayhem?
When I was a child, I had a friend who died from leukemia. It was a tough thing to understand at the age of five. I often think about him as an adult. Mayhem was in my own way a tribute to him.

Tell us little about the characters in Mayhem?
Dante lost his fiancé and unborn son on his wedding day. As a result, he enlisted in the Marines to get away from the memories and the guilt of being alive. Cyma is a single mother who has a very sick daughter. She is the perfect match for the tough as nails ex-marine, Dante, because she’s pretty tough herself.

What was the hardest part of writing this book?
The prologue was the absolute hardest part. Right, in the beginning, I throw the reader into the emotional rollercoaster. I take the reader through how Dante loses his fiancé and unborn son.

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why? 
There are a few that comes to mind, but I think my absolute favorite would probably be the epilogue. There is a touching moment that I believe every reader felt satisfied with.

What are your future project(s)?
I am currently rewriting the first book of the Twisted Hearts series Bedlam. After Bedlams release in March 2017, I will be writing Manny and Magnum’s story. They are supporting characters in Bedlam and Mayhem, but they will get their own books as well.

Now an exciting excerpt from Mayhem!

“I’m not a thug.” I cringe at his words as I’m reminded of that night together when I called him and his friends thugs. “Neither are Tony or my boys. Yeah, we may do bad shit, but it’s only when we feel our family is threatened. You were threatened—fuck, you were more than threatened; you were hurt. So that meant me stepping in to handle shit. Got a temper. But you already know that. You also know I would die for you and that little girl of yours. So no more running away. Not unless you are running to me and not from me.”

Tears begin to fall down my cheeks as relief settles around me. I don’t deserve this man. I love him so much. I never knew I could love another man after what happened with my ex-husband. “I love you,” I whisper the words.

Promo Tour: Off Campus by Amy Jo Cousins

Off Campus, Bend or Break Series Book 1 by Amy Jo Cousins

Date of Publication: January 27, 2015


Everyone's got secrets. Some are just harder to hide.
With his father's ponzi scheme assets frozen, Tom Worthington believes finishing college is impossible unless he can pay his own way. After months sleeping in his car and gypsy-cabbing for cash, he's ready to do just that.
But his new, older-student housing comes with an unapologetically gay roommate. Tom doesn't ask why Reese Anders has been separated from the rest of the student population. He's just happy to be sleeping in a bed.
Reese isn't about to share his brutal story with his gruff new roommate. You've seen one homophobic jock, you've seen 'em all. He plans to drag every twink on campus into his bed until Tom moves out. But soon it becomes clear Tom isn't budging.
Tom isn't going to let some late-night sex noise scare him off, especially when it's turning him on. But he doesn't want any drama either. He'll keep his hands, if not his eyes, to himself. Boundaries have a way of blurring when you start sharing truths, though. And if Tom and Reese cross too many lines, they may need to find out just how far they can bend…before they break.
Warning: This book contains cranky roommates who vacillate between lashing out and licking, some male/male voyeurism, emotional baggage that neither guy wants to unpack, and the definitive proof that sound carries in college housing.

I didn't read a romance novel until seventh grade. Mafia dons and samurai warlords? Check. Love stories? Not so much. Then my grandma showed up one summer with a garbage bag full of books. Her friend belonged to all of the Harlequin and Silhouette Book of the Month Clubs and passed on her copies to my grandma when she was done with them.
My grandma never met a Louis L'Amour book she didn't like, but she had no idea what to do with three hundred romance novels in a trash bag. Since it was clear that I was the book black hole, capable of sucking in uncountable numbers of novels while deaf to the world around me, I was the natural beneficiary of this windfall.
It changed my life.
I binge read all those books over the course of a summer where my mom despaired of getting me out of my bedroom. I was still reading science fiction and fantasy, adventure novels like The Count of Monte Cristo, and Agatha Christie books like they might run out of copies at the library. But those romance novels…I read five or six a day until school started. And when I finished that bag, there was another. And another.
Add in a seminal viewing of Romancing the Stone and the electric typewriter my mom managed to scrounge up and situate in the basement (so the clattering of the keys wouldn't keep everyone awake) on a tiny rolling metal table and there's really no escaping the fact that I've wanted to be a romance author for most of my life. As a career, it gives me the perfect excuse for my never-ending need to learn, about museum art restoration or theater stage management, about organic family farms or librarians' reader advisory ethics. I also get to remind myself again and again of the most important lesson I learned all those summers ago, hiding in my closet with a flashlight after midnight so I wouldn't get in trouble for staying up until my eyes burned…
People can make terrible mistakes with the ones they love, the last ones they ever thought they would hurt, and there can be a way back. Or through.
Because we are flawed and so often damaged already.
Because love is the heart of being human.
Love makes you vulnerable and strong in equal amounts and imparts a stretchiness to the soul that lets us bend when we're afraid we might break.
I can't think of any stories I'd rather tell.
