Give Me Books Presents: Violent Triumphs by Jessica Hawkins; #ReleaseBlitz, #NowAvailable, #OutNow, #TBR, #Live

Title: Violent Triumphs
Series: White Monarch #3
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2019


The highly anticipated conclusion to the “emotional, steamy, and dangerous” USA Today bestselling White

I’ve become a queen to the forsaken, a leader to thieves, and the wife of a man who instills fear in all who cross his path. He was the husband I didn’t want.  Now, I can’t fathom life without my king.

I should’ve been ready for anything. Like the caterpillar that feeds on poison during metamorphosis, I was raised in the dangerous world of cartel crime. But nothing could’ve prepared me for Cristiano de la Rosa, his brother’s poison, or
the Calavera cartel.

This is still a story about a love strong enough to topple households, unite enemies, and divide brothers. Resilient enough to bring down those who would try to destroy it . . . and selfless enough to make the ultimate sacrifice.

But I was warned, and so were you. Death’s day always comes. This time, it will find what was once a caterpillar is now a butterfly—and hell hath no fury like the White Monarch.

My dreams constantly haunt me, whether I’m asleep or awake. 

Six months ago, my life veered off course when my fiancée disappeared with no explanation. 

The partying lifestyle I'd adopted to cope, ended in an accident that left my body as broken as my heart. To make matters worse, I’ve managed to run off countless physical therapists in charge of the in-home rehabilitation I need to get me back on my feet. 

My last chance at staying in my own house is gift-wrapped in wavy, auburn hair and startling gray eyes. 

The woman that shattered my heart. 

Kelsey is the only one left to help heal my body. And her unexpected arrival brings with it the opportunity to ask the countless questions I thought I’d carry forever.

But her answers only create a new mountain to overcome, one I never imagined.

Now, more than ever, I need to prove to Kelsey that despite everything, we are meant to be a family...

Present Day

Pulling up in front of
the brick ranch she once called home was harder than she’d prepared herself
for. But knowing what lay on the other side of the door nearly killed Kelsey
Donovan from the moment Connor’s file first crossed her desk. 
Owning a rehabilitation
and physical therapy practice in a “little big town” like Asheville meant that
she knew many of her clients personally in addition to professionally.
Especially when her fiancé happened to be a member of one of the most respected
families in the area and well known to just about everyone. 
Ex-fiancé, she corrected herself. 
The sharp slice of pain
that hadn’t dulled in the slightest over the past six months since she left
pierced her heart once more. Connor Carlisle was the man she’d dream about when
she was an eighty-year-old spinster adopting her fourth cat. 
She’d never stop loving
him. That was an impossibility. 
The first night she’d
snuck into the hospital to see him after his surgery had nearly destroyed her.
More than the stitches across his forehead and the bandages bulging beneath the
sheets, the frosted blond spikes that replaced the once medium brown hair that
used to fall into his eyes and the ink peeking out from beneath his hospital
gown attested to the fact he had changed. Moved on. 
That thing she wanted
him to do when she packed her bags and left her diamond ring glittering on the
kitchen counter. 
She sucked in a deep and
stepped out of the SUV, rounding the hood to pull out her duffel bag packed
with supplies and equipment. The icy January air stole her breath. Connor’s
insurance covered exactly one at home physical therapy company, Donovan
Rehabilitation. The very same one he had helped her design the layout for when
she first opened her doors more than two years ago. 
Tears burned in the
corners of her eyes. He’d been her rock and the best cheerleader she could have
ever imagined. And he deserved the best. Everything he dreamed of. Which meant
she had to leave, even though it shattered her own heart. 
The fingers holding her
keys twitched as she stood in front of the etched glass of the oak door, the
one that would open it long removed from the ring. Instead she reached over to
press the doorbell. The light tinkling she heard echoing inside offered a fresh
prick of pain remembering when they installed it and Connor’s teasing that it
sounded like a fairy taking flight. 
Wheels rolling across
the hardwood entry nearly unraveled the small measure of composure she managed
to wrap around herself. Connor in a wheelchair was a sight she wasn’t sure she
could handle. Reviewing his file had nearly destroyed her, knowing everything
he’d gone through. The pain he was in. 
All of which culminated
into him dismissing three other therapists and leaving her other two employees firmly
refusing to even attempt to care for him based on the attitude described by the
He was miserable.
Grumpy. Angry. And taking it out on whoever he could find until the only one
left to oversee his therapy regimen was her. 
The last person on earth
she was sure he’d want to see. 
Her suspicion was
confirmed when he swung the door open and barked out a laugh. He closed his
eyes for what seemed like an eternity and opened them again, narrowing them
into slits. “This is a joke, right?”
Just looking at him
shredded her. His cheeks were pale. Dark circles rimmed his lower lids. The
sapphire eyes that damn near hypnotized her from their first meeting were void
of all their sparkle. 
Kelsey took a deep
breath. “Afraid not. Your insurance only works with one facility for at home
care and you managed to run off every employee I have.” She shrugged and held
out a hand helplessly. “Now you have two options: me or in-patient rehab.”
Throughout their six
year relationship Kelsey had come to expect a calm and composed Connor. He was
tender hearted. Generous. Compassionate. And the exact opposite of the snarling
man who spun his wheelchair around and rolled off uttering a string of curses
far more colorful than she’d ever heard leave Connor’s mouth before. 
She stared after him for
a moment before stepping inside and closing the door. 
was on her. A fact she owned and one she could never reveal.

Wedding bells are the last thing on twenty-two year old Riley Bishop’s mind, but that’s exactly what he hears after waking up in Vegas next to a woman he just met—his new wife.

He never saw her coming, but she might be worth the risk.

She’s risking it all, gambling with her heart.

Deciding to give their instant marriage a chance, Zoey moves from her big city life to a small town Texas ranch. She has to know if their connection is based on more than just a wild one-night stand before announcing to her family that she got hitched.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black comes a new story in her More Than Words series…

Can I convince her our hot but temporary engagement should last forever?

I’m Stephen Lund, confirmed bachelor…and son of a successful billionaire whose sins I can’t forget—or forgive. Though he insisted I get over his transgressions, I can’t. So I put space between us with a temporary getaway to Maui. My rental’s sexy caretaker, Skye Ingram, is a beautiful distraction. Yeah, it’s a terrible time to start a fling, but I can’t help wanting to give her every bit of pleasure she’s willing to take.

When Skye needs a date to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding, I’m game to play her pretend fiancé. The jerk should see what he passed up…and that I’m holding her now. But our pretend engagement begins to feel real. Our passion certainly is. So are the consequences. When I’m confronted with the reality that our lives are now irrevocably entwined, I have to choose between leaving Skye to return to the life—and wealth—I’ve always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened my heart.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

“So you think having a fiancé will finally convince your ex’s mother to back off?”
“I hope. In her head, I’m all alone, and Finn is only marrying Dana because he’s a stubborn dumb ass. But if she sees I’ve moved on, too, I have to think she’ll give up.”
“Tell me one thing that will really convince her you’re no longer interested in Finn.”
Skye pauses. “I haven’t thought about it like that… Probably behaving unlike the way I did with Finn.”
“What do you mean?”
“She was always encouraging us to kiss and hold hands. She would give us romantic weekends away. Once, when I made an offhanded mention that my period was late, she asked me—gleefully—if there was any chance I was pregnant. I didn’t have the heart to tell her no.”
No chance at all? “Not to be too personal, but did you ever have sex with Finn?”
“No. Maybe he might have tried harder if I had been more receptive. But mostly I think we both felt pushed into the relationship.”
“So you and I have to act like we can’t keep our hands off each other?”
“Probably.” She winces. “Yeah. Sorry.”
“It’s not a problem.” At all. I reach for her hand—and frown when Skye jolts. “But if we’re going to convince anyone, especially people who have known you for years, that we’re getting married because we’re desperately in love, you can’t jump when I touch you. We have to leave them thinking that we barely managed to roll out of bed for the wedding and that we’ll probably roll right back in as soon as we’re alone.”
“You’re right. It’s just, um…been a while since anyone kissed me. I don’t count Finn.”
“How long?”
She pauses. “Two years and some change.”
Whoa. Skye deserves to be kissed well and often by someone desperate to make love to that pillowy pink mouth with abandon. Hell, yeah, I’ll volunteer. And if it’s been that long since anyone has kissed her, how long since someone has taken her to bed and pleasured her? I don’t ask—but I’m really fucking curious. “I did not see that coming.”
“Embarrassing, right?”
I shake my head. “No.”
“You’re being nice.” She slides off the stool and onto her feet, shaking slightly. “So you think we should wing the whole PDA thing…or maybe practice a little?”
“Definitely practice.” I can’t help but grin. “A lot.”
Skye bites her soft lip. “You’re probably right.”
I am. And that makes her very nervous.
“No maybe about it.” I flash what I hope is a reassuring smile, not one that divulges the fact that I woke up with an aching cock and her on my mind.
“Okay, how should we—”
I stop her awkward, breathless question by kicking away from my stool. The legs drag across the tile as I stand. That’s the only sound in the room besides the distant crash of surf and her suddenly rapid breathing.
“Come here.” I crook my finger.

By Kendall Ryan
Release Day: November 12, 2019

About the Book:

Teddy King excels at many things. Playing hockey. Check. Scoring on and off the ice. Check. Being stupidly attractive ... Double check.

Despite his demanding schedule, he still finds time to annoy me. I knew him way back when. Before he was the guy everyone wanted a piece of, he was just a rebellious college co-ed and one of my more energetic study partners.

But secrets have a way of getting out, and a steamy encounter from our college days (that we probably shouldn't have filmed) is about to cause a major scandal. Unless we can work together to stop it.

Teddy’s no stranger to hard work … but the thing he wants most?

Is me.

Note: This high-heat standalone is chock-full of scorching banter and steamy good times. He's a testosterone-dripping hockey player who wants a second chance. She's a tough as nails attorney intent on making partner. Frienemies to lovers. No cliffhanger. Enjoy!

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all new stand-alone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is perfect for you!
