About Snatching Dianna:

The hours are counting down as investigators try to prove that Dianna Murphy has been snatched. Unfortunately, without witnesses and solid evidence, all the police really know is that she is missing.

When suburban Milwaukee law student Dianna Murphy fails to connect with her roommate, there is no real evidence that she has been snatched. Until Law Professor Janet MacLachlan, a former covert agent, discovers a single clue, one that points to a taking by a slave trafficking cartel. In a race against time, Janet recruits her husband, secret agent Cade Matthews, small-town Police Chief David Manders and his wife, criminal defense attorney Julianna Constant, and other law students to uncover the truth. Can they prove she has been taken, before Dianna disappears without a trace?

Excerpt:
After what seemed like hours in the sweltering van, it lurched to a stop.

Dianna heard a man bark orders. A door to the van opened and someone pulled the rope from her feet, then removed her hood. She took a deep breath.  A man grabbed her by the arm, forced to her feet, and pulled from the van. Dianna stumbled when she hit the ground. The stones were hot and her feet were covered by athletic socks, no shoes. Show no weakness.

Dianna immediately surveyed her surroundings. It was still night, but she was in a well-lit courtyard. A large stone mansion stood in front of her. She looked to her right, then her left. The courtyard was enclosed by a large stone fence, at least eight feet high. A fortress. Fortunately, Dianna was a rock-climber. She could rappel over the fence with the right equipment. All she would need was something to serve as a pick, maybe a rope. A knife, a screwdriver, even a fork. Keep your eyes and ears open. Be ready.

A large black man, dressed in a white suit and a maroon turban, walked out of the front door and down the stairs. He stopped and flashed a malevolent smile. He flung his arms wide and in a cultured baritone boomed, “Welcome to paradise, ladies. I hope you enjoy your stay.”

Some of the guards laughed.

“Crikey,” Tillie muttered. “Sounds like a blasted genie.”

Dianna glanced sideways and for the first time, got a look at her new friend. She was tall and thin, her body well defined. She looked strong and aware, almost fierce. Her eyes seemed to be studying the place, taking everything in. She showed no fear. Instead, she seemed interested. Something was off. Tillie did not act like a victim as the others did. She was not cowed. Was she a cop? Or like Dianna, someone who would not permit themselves to be broken?

There was only one thing of which Dianna was certain. She had found a friend. A useful one.

the best friend who knows her by heart, and the soccer god who knows
her by soul. Hawk isn’t happy with her indecision. Lia has no
idea, but he’s been watching her. He’s infiltrated her inner

survive her love?
Knights After My Heart
Westbrook Knights Book 1
by Sonya Jesus
Genre: NA Romantic Suspense
Amelia’s past issues and personal time limits propel her into a relationship
that alters her normal life at Westbrook University. Connor, her new
potential boyfriend, triggers jealousy, rehashes old relationships,
sparks new ones, and ignites a rage in others that will devastate her
ordinary life. As she desperately tries to hold on to her pre-Connor
life, she struggles to balance the new-found attention while trying
to follow her heart. Something she realizes is complicated… very
complicated – because her heart has no idea where it’s going.
Connor may be the change Lia is looking for, but he is certainly not the
ending Hawk wants for his Queen. Hawk’s invested too much time in
planning his future to let some random guy walk away with his happily
ever after. He will do anything to protect her virtue, even if it
means protecting her from herself because Amelia belongs to him.
He’s chosen her…
He’s watched her…
He’s studied her…
He knows everything there is to learn about her…
And when the time is right she will reign his heart.
**FREE from Oct 11-15**
Knights Who Stole My Heart
Westbrook Knights Book 2
Amelia’s heart is torn between the new, the old and the familiar but when her
heart screams out what it wants, Amelia listens. It’s not always
easy since a conflicted heart wants different things on different
days, but she finds a way to work around her indecisiveness and focus
on what she needs- what she thinks she can’t live without.
The closer Amelia gets to figuring out her love life, the more Hawk
unravels. While he deals with loose ends and new threats, his
strategic plans start to fall into place. Pawns advance, the King’s
in the ideal position and the Rook hosts the Mad Lib Auction. What he
doesn’t expect is for his Queen to be in danger and for Knights to
steal hearts.

Knights Who Broke My Heart
Westbrook Knights Book 3
They were out to break my heart…
Amelia finally figures out exactly who her heart wants, and she is
determined to go for it. She is willing to give the knight who stole
her heart everything. She owns up to her mistakes and truly attempts
to change, but just because her mind is made up, doesn’t mean her
love is reciprocated. Will she choose the best-friend who learned her
by heart, or the soccer god who ignored her for the longest time? One
of them will win her heart, the other will break it… But neither of
them are safe from the guy who will stop at nothing to protect her.
Murder isn’t something Hawk shies away from. Actually, he prefers to use
it as a last recourse, but he’s unravelling. The closer Amelia gets
to achieving happiness, the more his control disintegrates. And when
one of his carefully laid plans turns on him, he loses it. Realizing
he’s the reason behind Amelia’s attack, plagues him with guilt.
In all his attempts to protect her, he was the one who put her in
danger- a failure he isn’t willing to have looming over him… But
what happens when his Queen fails him in ways she can never take
back?

Detective Sergeant Lena Evans gets recognized on the streets of her hometown of West Joseph, Ohio. She’s a reluctant local celebrity, having defeated serial killer Lathan Collins.

Now, as the one-year anniversary of the Collins case nears, four more women have been brutally murdered—and the killer is sending video footage of their deaths directly to Lena’s inbox.

The investigation brings Lena face-to-face with her past: the Collins case, her celebrity status, her lingering PTSD—and the first woman she ever loved, Special Agent Cait Porter, who’s just been assigned to the case.

The killer gives Lena five days to figure out who he is. But the closer she gets to finding him, the more likely it is that she’ll become his fifth victim.

Read an excerpt

THREE CEMENT WALLS covered in soot appeared on the large projection screen at the front of the room. Two archways on the back wall had been sealed off with maroon-colored bricks. A thin shadow cast along the top of the archway. Drops of water rhythmically splashed into a shallow puddle that could be heard off screen. Each drop echoed in the room, sending a chill up my spine. The hairs on the back of my neck rose as my shoulders quickly shuddered. Along the top of the back wall, between the two sealed archways, a burst of sunlight shot through a narrow glass-block window.

The rays of sun shone upon a petite female barely twenty years old. Her long blond hair was just as voluptuous as her breasts as it fell seductively over her shoulders. It sparkled each time she shifted in the aluminum chair that sat in the center of the dimly lit room. Behind the woman, camouflaged within the dull gray walls, a sharp hook hung loosely from a thick rope. It was barely noticeable at first but stuck out like pizza sauce on a white shirt once seen.

The young woman tentatively riffled through a small stack of papers she had rested on her lap. The pages crinkled around the edges, as if she had rolled and twisted them in her hands before taking a seat in front of the camera. She looked directly into the lens, her blue eyes filled with both uncertainty and ambition, then darted her eyes to the side.

“You may begin whenever you’re ready,” said an off-camera voice, deep and distorted, as if it had been electronically altered.

The young woman smiled, revealing her bold, white teeth, and looked down at the stack of papers on her lap. She cleared her throat and began.

The Determined You
Only You Book 2
Heroes paint the big screen, but a violent opponent interferes with true
love, driving one actor to prove he’s more than a script.

Easy-going Lil Reed is like every red-blooded female would be: excited to meet
her first Hollywood A-lister. After all, Grey Richards is the talk of
the town. And she’s the lucky one; his brother is marrying into her
family. But Lil quickly learns an age-old lesson: be careful what you
wish for. Grey is nothing like the charismatic and charming
characters he portrays. This heartthrob is surly, arrogant, and
completely closed off.
With no patience for gossip-reading fan girls, Grey is far from interested
in the youngest Reed sister. And a guy like Grey would never date
outside the elite Hollywood circles. That would be career suicide.
However, when there’s a threat against the Reed sisters, Grey feels compelled
to protect the spunky and adorable woman who somehow wiggled her way
into his heart. With danger closing in, Grey must save the sisters
and prove to Lil that there’s more behind the glamour and glitz. But
will she ignore the fake tabloids for a chance at real love?

But now, her brothers’ enemies have a new target: Her.
Finding solace at the bottom of a bottle, Tim Rhodes is still struggling with
his wife’s death. Encountering the beautiful and assertive Trinity
puts him on edge. After all, he has no intentions of ever falling in
love again. Love only breeds pain–and too much of it. The last thing
he needs is another woman in his life.
When Trinity’s life is threatened, Tim’s torn between his past and what
could possibly be his future. Now, it’s up to him to confront his
demons and fight for the woman he wants. Can he bury his pain and
save Trinity before it’s too late?

toughest decision of my life ‘Knights of Sin MC’ #MC #RomanticSuspense @trejo_erin @SDSXXTours

Never Letting Go
Knights of Sin MC Book 1
by Erin Trejo
Genre: MC Romantic Suspense
MICAH:
Ten years ago I fucked up. I pushed the one thing I loved the most away.
I watched her run as far as she could. I ruined the love we had. I
threw myself into the Marine’s thinking I could get her out of my
system. That didn’t work.
When I came back I got the worst news ever. Or so I thought. Now I’m
forced to keep a promise I made and find the one girl that stole my heart.
AUBRIE:
We had a love that was stronger than it should have been. He threw it
away though. After a series of unfortunate events, I was settled and stable.
Happy?
Not quiet but when Micah shows up and rocks my world to the core I’m
forced back into my old life. A life I ran from. Now being back in
the one place I used to call home, I don’t know where I belong.
Learning To Love
Knights of Sin MC Book 2
Bullet:
I fought my way through life. Family was an important part of that. I
kept myself away from them not wanting to see the disgust of my
father. My club was all the family I needed. When I was taken and
forced into a living hell, the one thing that kept me going was the
unknown girl next to me. Getting her out alive was my priority. After
I do, I have to make the toughest decision of my life.
Trinity:
I was never wanted. My father used me to his advantage. I was taken
for his debts. I thought I would die. I wanted to. That faceless man
that kept me going was all I looked forward to. Until he was gone.
When he finds me again, I have to learn to love. Can he be the one to
show me how?
Fighting For a Chance
Knights of Sin MC Book 3
Dax:
I was a fighter. I was good at it. When I met Laura I thought I was
having a round of hot sex like usual. When I saw her for who she
truly was, I wanted more. A lot more. She had her own problems but I
wasn’t ready to let go just yet. I’ll fight for what I want even if
she does push me away.
Laura:
I have a past that won’t go away. Literally. Hector hasn’t gotten the
message that I don’t want him. A night with Dax turns into more. I
didn’t plan on it. Every single time I turned around, he was there
and I found myself liking it. But Hector remains a problem. A problem
that quickly gets out of hand.
Keeping Faith
Knights of Sin MC Book 4
Kane:
Unhappily married. Yeah, that sums up my life. I messed up with that
shit decision. I still have my sister though. When I attend her
wedding, I run into an old friend. Ivy. When she admits that she had
feelings for me, I take her home like any good man would do. I didn’t
expect all the complications that came with it though. She was used
before me and I want to show her that I’m not the same as him. The
problem is, I am.
Ivy:
I fought cancer and won. I fought a useless husband and won. When I
see Kane again, I lose. Badly. I always had a crush on him when we
were kids. I never thought the feelings would still be there years
later. One night with him and my world is thrown off balance. His
club is his life and I know that. When my cancer comes back in full
force, I do the one thing I can. I run. He will chase me. He told me
he would. When the tables turn, will I do the same?
One More Try
Knights of Sin MC Book 5
Sebastian
Blood. Death. Darkness. Those are things I know. Fucking. Drinking. Walking
away. I was good at that. I messed up one night when I slept with the
President’s niece. We were both drunk and out of control. Now she’s
pregnant with my kid. I can’t be a father. I don’t want to be. At
least not at first. After a hit goes wrong, I change my mind.
Shannon
I was taken. I was beaten. I was raped. My uncle’s club saved me. It
also destroyed me. Meeting Bash was the worst thing that could have
happened. He was a mistake and we both knew it. The more I tried to
stay away from him, the more he sought me out. My attraction to him
became something more. Now where do we go?
Promise of Love
Knights of Sin MC Book 6
Link:
I was a virgin. Yeah, the laugh of the club. It didn’t bother me
though. I saw the way my parent’s and I didn’t want to be like that.
I love this club. I’d do anything for them. When I met Jordyn, that
loyalty was tested. The things that happened between us quickly
defined us. I’ve held out hope that love was out there for me.
Jordyn:
I ran from one bad situation to another. When the club I fell into
sent me to another to get information, I thought it would be easy. I
didn’t think I’d fall for the man I was supposed to be spying on. Not
wanting to hurt him, I ran. He found me. Now I have to face the music
and the man I’ve fallen for.
I am a wife, mother, child chauffeur and author. I love being able to
create different characters and spin a web that makes them come
together in the end. My books do not stick to just one genre, they
span many.
I write about things that are real life situations and fairy tales are
not always smooth sailing. My MC books are hard and gritty and they
have struggles just like you would in life.
I also have books that are not so in your face. There are several that
are good love stories that are fraught with issues that the
characters have to deal with.

the consequences are unimaginable ‘One Last Heist’ #Gay #RomanticSuspense @DahliaDonovan @SDSXXTours

One Last Heist
by Dahlia Donovan
Genre: M/M Romantic Suspense
One last heist.

It should’ve been easy. Crack a safe, steal from a villain, and go on
vacation. The last thing Mack and Toshiro expect is to descend into a
nightmare of betrayal.

Mack Ueda-Easton loves three things: his husband, heists, and his odd
family of friends. He lives life on the edge. The only cloud on his
horizon is the degenerative disease stealing his sight.

Toshiro Ueda-Easton tries to juggle his husband, his autistic sister, his
interfering mother, and all of their heists. He knows they’re
spiraling out of control and the journey they’re travelling can’t last.

What neither of them expect is to get catapulted straight into a dangerous
conspiracy. They’re now in a race to come out on top. If they fail,
the consequences are unimaginable.
Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about
shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and
unconventional characters. An autistic and occasional hermit, her
life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive
collection of books and video games.
