Playing His Games, by Donna Alam. Steamy Romance Release

Title: Playing His Games
Author: Donna Alam
Genre: Steamy Romance
Release Date: September 21, 2017

Fantasies. We all have them.
The night I go home with him, he’s mine.
Dark. Dominant. His hot Brit accent makes me wet. 
He has secrets. A past. A son.
But that night, I only know I want him.
I’m not a one-night stand kind of girl.
I don’t get drunk.
Don’t go home with handsome strangers.
I’d never creep out next morning,
Without exchanging names.
Until I do.
Until he finds me again,
And melts my inhibitions.
Until I’m dancing to his dark tune, 
And bending my rules. 
I shouldn’t—I won’t—fall for him.
But I can’t stop playing his games.


USA Today bestselling author Donna writes about exotic locations and the men you aren't married to, but might sometimes wish you were. Escapism reads with heart, humor, and plenty of steam.
Hailing from the North of England, she's a nomad at heart moving houses and continents more times than she cares to recall. She once worked at a school like the one described in her Pretty Series, where the wheels of her imagination began to turn. 
When not bashing away at a keyboard, Donna can usually be found, good book in hand, hiding from her family and responsibilities. She likes her wine and humour dry, her mojitos sweet, and language salty.

Chase Henson doesn’t play by the rules. He doesn’t let himself get attached, doesn’t stay in one place long enough to call anywhere home. So when he returns to the small town of Summer Hill for the first time in years, the last thing he expects to find is a reason to stay.
Sierra Belmont is lost. After a sudden loss that left her heart broken in a million pieces, Sierra is just barely getting by. Burying herself in work at Summer Hill’s only bookstore, all she wants to do is make it through another day.
And then Chase comes in to buy a book. Rumors that he’s dangerous fly through the town, but Sierra isn’t afraid of him. He might be the last person she should be with, but he’s the only one who understands the depth of her pain. For the first time, Chase stands still, fighting the desperation to mend Sierra’s broken heart. 
Always running, the past has never had a chance to catch up to Chase. But there’s a first time for everything.

Death Match: A Michele Shepard Story (True Death #7) by RK Gleason. Scifi/Horror, Release


Title: Death Match: A Michele Shepard Story
Series: True Death #7
Author: RK Gleason 
Release Date: September 21
Genre: Scifi/Horror
Human beings aren’t the only creatures in all the planes of existence threatened by change, and fear of the unknown. Horace’s recent confrontations with ‘superior beings’ and the unusual circumstances of Niki’s pregnancy have placed a bounty on both their heads. That is, unless Jehna can broker a deal that ensures everyone involved has something to lose, without tearing the group of friends apart.


As the details of the blood-contract unfold, it becomes increasingly obvious it’s not ‘if’ the agreement will be broken, but when…
What will it mean for Horace and Niki when the lines are crossed, not to mention Shepard and their angelic allies? Will their enemies finally be able to swing the axe they’ve been grinding for centuries?
Which of the friends will fall under the heavy blade of revenge, and who will be left standing at the end of… Death Match?

R.K. Gleason was born in Grand Island, Nebraska in 196-something. He grew up, and spent most of his adult life living in Seattle. In late 1999, he met the love of his life, left his home in Seattle and moved to Ohio. Currently, R.K. lives in Columbus, Ohio with his best friend, and gorgeous wife, Petra. They have four children, currently two grandchildren, and ABSOLTELY no pets.


While R.K. grew up with a naturally vivid imagination, although his friends might argue some of it was self-induced, he seldom put his thoughts to paper. At the age of forty-eight, after the inspiration came to him in a dream, he began his first novel. On that day, The Truth Death and The Michele Shepard Series came to life.
