This is Lorhaven and Joey's book. I hear you saying, "I don't like Lorhaven".
You will after you read this book.

Synopsis:

These drivers got #swag…

Racing is in her DNA.
Right alongside money and power.
When you’re the daughter of one of the most powerful men in the country,
you have to work harder for success.
Joey Gamble’s a girl on a male-dominated track.
With a daddy who can buy whatever she wants.
But she doesn’t want anything… except to EARN her reputation.

Racing is his passion.
Trouble follows him everywhere. Some even say he invites it.
When you’re nipping at the taillights of the best driver in the new NRR,
you have to fight and claw for each and every success.
It’s never been easy for Lorhaven.
That’s why he doesn’t play by the rules.
He’s a man with a serious chip on his shoulder against the pro racing circuit.
We at GearShark want to know what’s up with that.

We’ve also been hearing rumblings…
of a pro who wants to go indie.

We’ve invited racing royalty and the driver from the wrong side of the tracks to sit down and talk to us about a possible crossover.
We expected sparks to fly when Joey and Lorhaven crossed paths.
Will those sparks ignite into a full-on inferno?

Comment

In the wake of a rash of these sorts of articles about the price of art and also, a decision by my own government (the Australian government that is), I feel compelled to weigh in.

My question is, when did we, as a society, decide that art was worth nothing, that it was ok to steal it? Movies, tv shows, music, books. Why is it ok to steal these? To illegally download them or to return them after reading them for a full refund because 99 cents is too much for something a lot of people have put a lot of time and effort into making.
Why are these less worthy of our hard earned cash then say, a sports match? Is it the perceived vast amounts of cash floating around in these circles? Coz Tom Brady's latest contract was for $60 million, my book, for example, is on sale for $1.99. I know, how dare I? But why is my book seen as less in the eyes of society? Why am I, as a writer, seen as not worthy, or as someone who doesn't create something worth protecting? Or something that contributes to Society? How am I any less important than Tom Brady? He throws around a (under inflated) leather ball, I write words in a page. Neither of us are curing cancer, but yet, he is seen as a worthy contributer to society while I am not.
Why are people willing to pay hundreds of dollars to see him play, to support him and his team, but $1.99 for my book, something i put just as much passion into as Tom Brady does when he plays, is seen as too much?

The Australian government sees me, and my industry, as a drain on the economy, as a waste of talent. As a lifelong liberal voter, this hurts. They don't feel I should have the rights to my work after a, fairly, short, period of time, much less than copyright says I should have. I am proud to be Australian, I am happy with our current government, but I cannot condone what they want to do with my industry. It is so sad, that despite the value I place on them, they do not value me.

It's a terrible feeling to know that society does not seem you, your work - your heart and soul, as worthy of the cost of less than a cup of coffee. I found my place in this world and to be told it's not worth anything? I work with some fantastic people, people who work hard, much harder than I do to be honest. They put a lot of time and effort into creating something people enjoy, well, most people. I think if people knew how much time and effort goes on behind the scenes they'd have a much different opinion.

Title: Assured

Series: Soul Serenade #2

Author: Kaylee Ryan

Genre: New Adult Romance

Release Date: May 7, 2016

 

BLURB

 

I’ve always been the guy who plays the field.  I like variety and my career ensures that I can have my pick of women.

 

Until her…

 

I’ve always been the girl who wants more.  I want the white picket fence, the two point five kids and the dog.  That’s what all little girls grow up dreaming about.

 

Until him…

 

Why is it that she’s all I can see?  I no longer want the variety instead all I want is her.  I won’t stop until she believes that she’s mine.

 

I assure you…

 

He’s not the kind of guy I usually date.  He’s cocky, and famous and that hair.  He says I’m what he wants, but I know his type.  He likes to play the field.  Only with me he’s different.

 

He’s assured.

Taxi release blitz, Cambria Hebert

Book & Author Details:

Title: TAXI 
Series: Take It Off series (A series of standalones)
THIS IS A STANDALONE NOVEL
Author: Cambria Hebert
Genre: Romantic suspense 
Release Date: May 6th
Price: $2.99 (Ebook) $9.99 (Print) 

Synopsis:

The meter is running…

One night as Rose Crawford steps out of a bar, she gives no second thought to lifting her hand to signal for a cab. After all, it’s the responsible thing to do.

A common occurrence. 

Far safer than walking several blocks, alone, in the dark.

A familiar-looking yellow taxi with black, faux-leather seats, running meter on the dash, and a smiling driver pulls up to the curb.

Rose slides in. Gives the driver her address…

But she never reaches her destination.

Instead, she finds herself captive, at the will of a man who isn’t a driver, but a bona fide psychopath.

Trapped in a taxi she can’t escape, Rose begins to panic. As the miles between her and safety grow, hope dwindles. It isn’t until someone else joins her in captivity that her spark of hope is rekindled.

Derek is strong, capable, and surely together they can fight their way to freedom.

Then Rose finds out exactly why she’s been driven into hell. Derek may be an unwilling captive, but he isn’t going to help her.

In fact, he’s there to do the exact opposite.
