REVIEW AND EXCERPT TOUR: Royally Screwed by Emma Chase


royally-screwed-for-webEmma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled Series & Legal Briefs Series, returns with the first of three sizzling standalone books about a family of racy, irresistible Royals.

Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka “His Royal Hotness”, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant—hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.

Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.

Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.


Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.

There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately—the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.

But to Olivia—Nicholas is worth it.


Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is, but more importantly, who he wants to be: a King… or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.


Nook –…/1124196859…



Royalty is forever…

That’s a concept that Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, had to learn at an early age; at a time when duty, honor, and responsibilities weren’t concepts he could understand but were expectations nonetheless. And now that her Majesty Queen Lenora has rendered a royal decree that Nicholas has no choice but to follow, he finds himself royally screwed in the most unpleasant of ways.

Olivia Hammond is not of noble blood; she has no wealth or properties…no title or dowry. She’s a commoner through and through and she has the debt and plain lifestyle to prove it. But what she does have is the ability to bring Prince Nicholas to his knees, and even though Olivia has been her own hero for quite some time, a summer affair with “His Royal Hotness” might just change this lovely pauper into a beautiful princess, but that doesn’t mean she’ll have her prince, especially since Nicholas must follow the path his grandmother has laid out for him and who she deems appropriate for the future King of Wessco.

Emma Chase has patented the cocky and sinfully sexy male point of view, and Nicholas falls right in line with those who have come before him. Nicholas is definitely a larger than life character who may seem prim and proper in public but is quite the dirty talking seducer behind closed doors, and I can only imagine what his brother, Henry, will add to Chase’s handsome and dominating males.

Olivia is an extremely likable character; despite the hardships she’s faced and the responsibilities that seem to weigh her down, she works hard to keep Amelia’s afloat while having very little for herself. Olivia never complains or acts out because she knows what matters most in life, and day in and day out, she relies on only herself to keep everything running despite how difficult it is. 

Even though Nicholas and Olivia come from two very different worlds and can’t have anything more than a summer affair, the ease in which their relationship progresses is not something they saw coming nor is it something they want to willingly give up. Despite those feelings, though, they can’t change who they are nor can Nicholas’ royal heritage be forgotten, which means that this royal and this commoner’s future has no way of remaining linked because duty to the crown will always trump love even in the 21st Century.

If Royally Screwed is any indication of what Emma Chase’s new series has in store for readers, we are in for one steamy, witty, and romantic journey that will illustrate being a royal is not all glitz and glamour, especially if the Pembrook men have anything to say about it.

4.5 Poison Apples 



She’s even lovelier than I remembered, than I dreamed. Delicate midnight tendrils frame a face that belongs in a museum—with stunning dark sapphire eyes that should be commemorated in vibrant oils and soft watercolors. If Helen launched a thousand ships, this girl could raise a thousand hard-ons.

She’s prettily made, the top of her head coming only to my chin, but fantastically curvy. Great full tits that strain the buttons of a wrinkled white blouse, shapely hips in a black skirt tapering to a tiny waist I could wrap my hands around and toned legs encased in sheer black tights finish off the whole package very nicely.

An unfamiliar anxiousness fizzes like soda in my gut.

“The door was open,” I explain.

“It’s broken.”

Logan flicks at the lock. Security is his life, so a broken lock would annoy him like a puzzle with the final piece missing.

“What do you want?”

She has no idea who I am. It’s in the defensive way she holds herself and the accusatory note in her voice. Some women try to pretend they don’t recognize me, but I can always tell. Her ignorance is

rather…thrilling. There are no expectations, no hidden agendas, no reasons to pretend—what she sees is what she gets. And all she sees is me.

My throat is suddenly a barren wasteland. I swallow, but it’s difficult.

“Well, he’s desperate for some pie.” I hook my thumb at Simon. “And I…wanted to apologize for the other evening. I don’t normally act that way. I was on a bit of bender…”

“In my experience, people don’t do things when they’re drunk that they wouldn’t do normally.”

“No, you’re right. I would’ve thought all those things, but I never would’ve said them out loud.” I move closer, slowly. “And if I’d been sober…my opening bid would’ve been much higher.”

“She crosses her arms. “Are you trying to be cute?”

“No. I don’t have to try…it just sort of happens.”


Emma Chase is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the hot and hilarious Tangled series and The Legal Briefs series.

Emma lives in New Jersey with her husband, two children and two naughty (but really cute) dogs. She has a long-standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.

What’s Next For Amy McKinley

I recently finished a YA urban fantasy set in ancient Greece. The storyline for the book came to me late at night as I was falling asleep. The plot, in its entirety, was incessant and rolling over and over in my mind. I knew if I wanted to get any rest I’d have to get up and jot it down, or risk forgetting it. So far, that’s the first time the entire plot showed up in that manner. I welcome a repeat experience!

Right now I’m working on Eos’ story, the third book in the Five Fates series. I can’t wait to share it with you…hopefully soon!

Aside from those two, I plan on finishing up the Five Fates and then working on either a stand-alone contemporary romance or a romantic suspense series. Time will tell what story needs to be told next.

Title: Punk 57

Genre: New Adult

Author: Penelope Douglas

Release Date: October 21, 2016


Pinterest Board:


From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Douglas, comes the latest New Adult romance of love, hate, and everything in between…

“We were perfect together. Until we met.”


I can’t help but smile at the lyrics in her letter. She misses me.

In fifth grade, my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student, Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed.

It didn’t take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever…

And that was the start. For the next seven years, it was us.

Her letters are always on black paper with silver writing. Sometimes there’s one a week or three in a day, but I need them. She’s the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.

We only had three rules. No social media, no phone numbers, no pictures. We had a good thing going. Why ruin it?

Until I run across a photo of a girl online. Name’s Ryen, loves Gallo’s pizza, and worships her iPhone. What are the chances?

F*ck it. I need to meet her.

I just don’t expect to hate what I find.


He hasn’t written in three months. Something’s wrong. Did he die? Get arrested? Knowing Misha, neither would be a stretch.

Without him around, I’m going crazy. I need to know someone is listening. It’s my own fault. I should’ve gotten his phone number or picture or something.

He could be gone forever.

Or right under my nose, and I wouldn’t even know it.

*Punk 57 is a stand alone New Adult romance. It is suitable for ages 18+.

PRE-ORDER BLITZ: The Season: Kaufman by Nicole Edwards

PRE-ORDER NOW! The Season: Kaufman 

by Nicole Edwards

Coming October 25th, 2016!

Kobo: Coming Soon


Spencer Kaufman

When I signed on to the NHL, I promised to give 150% to the game. I’ve done that.

Little did I know, but they would ask more from me than merely my skill on the ice. The team wanted me to be their captain. It’s an honor, one I’ve done my best to fulfill. Although I can’t take all the credit, I was there to lead when we won the Stanley Cup.

I’m still at the helm now, when we’ve hit rock bottom. I know I have let my fears get in the way. I’ve let down the team, even if they don’t realize what I’ve done.

Now that the new season’s underway, I’m being called out. I deserve it. I can deal with that. It won’t be easy, but I’ll persevere.

What I can’t deal with is her.

She surprised me.

She came out of nowhere and blindsided me.

And there’s one serious issue.

Now that I have her, I refuse to let her go.

*This is a full-length, standalone novel. It is part of the Austin Arrows series, but can be read independently.

About the Author


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home

FOSTER AN AUTHOR DAY 4: Author Interview: Amy McKinley

taken-large hidden-large

Here’s an insider’s look at who Amy McKinley is and what it’s like to be an author as well as some fun information about her:) 

When did you decide to become a writer?

I think I’ve always wanted to be a writer but when I was young I didn’t understand how to turn that path into a career. It wasn’t until a few years ago when I started working for a creative company that it clicked. While I interviewed for the position I realized I wanted to write a novel.

Why do you write?

I crave the creative outlet. I love when I’m figuring out the plot and the puzzle pieces begin to fall into place, or the scene changes because the characters throw a curve ball.

Do you write every day?

It’s heaven to do some form or writing every day but it doesn’t always work that way. Family and life intervene. If I’m able to plot, write, or edit I’m thrilled and usually manage to do so in some form at least five days a week. If it’s been too long since I’ve sunk into writing a story the urge to do so is all consuming.

Do you listen to music when you write?

Absolutely. I have several playlists that fade into the background as I type. I don’t even notice the music but it seems to aid in creativity.

Where do your ideas come from?

They’re everywhere. Sometimes, just the sound of a particular laugh, a word someone says, or a smile will be the first conceptual spark that develops into something amazing. Although, ideas often come at the most inopportune time: in the shower, driving, or just before falling asleep. I’ve learned to keep notepads in several locations.

Do you work to an outline or do you prefer to see where an idea takes you?

I love to outline. I think that’s the control freak in me. It helps me to see where the story is going and if all the parts are where they should be. That way I can easily shuffle things around if needed. But there are times I’ll sit down and write out a scene because it has to be done.

What are your thoughts on writing a book series?

I love writing a book series. It gives readers, and the author, more time with characters we’re not ready to let go of.

What, in your opinion, are the most important elements of good writing?

Keeping the reader (and I am one of them) engaged with strong, well-developed characters, setting, and plot.

Who edited your books and why did you select him/her?

Cassiel Knight was the editor assigned by the Champagne Books for my novels. She was wonderful to work with and I look forward to future endeavors with her expertise.

Who designed your book covers?

Champagne Books assigned Trisha FitzGerald as the cover artist for both Hidden and Taken. She did a great job designing the covers.

Rapid Fire Questions:

Favorite color?

Blue. Almost all shades except pastel.

Favorite season?

Fall. The colors are beautiful and I like the cooler weather.

Favorite TV show?

Oh…there are several as we DVR them. How to list only one? Hmm. I’ve been watching iZombie lately. We watch Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, and The Flash. I still love watching re-runs of Will and Grace. There are more but I’m going to stop!

Favorite movie?

It’s a toss up between the Bourne Identity movies and August Rush. I adore romantic comedies but there are too many competing in my head to name.

Favorite quote?

There are two. I love the strength and power of this quote:  “Sometimes I wonder if love is worth fighting for. Then I look at you and I’m ready for war.” ~unknown.

“Legend says, when you can’t sleep at night, it’s because you’re awake in someone else’s dream.” ~unknown.


Mirrors, just at night. Yep, that’s pretty weird. When I was young I woke up in the middle of the night and saw a very distinct face in the mirror—not my own. Of course a blood-curdling scream ripped through the house until the offensive mirror was removed. Ever since then I tend to overt my eyes from the mirrors if I’ve just woken and it’s night.
