I’ll stop at
nothing to own her. 




I’m a collector of dolls.



All kinds of dolls.

“Her lips taste
like honey and sin…”




My name is Logan Hunter. I’m former NYPD SWAT. I don't do romance. I don't do
relationships; at least not after what happened with my ex fiancé, Shay. I left
NYC to take on a series of high-risk recue missions abroad. But last night I
got a call from the only woman who could lure me back to the states: my
ex.



Her life is in danger and she needs me to protect her. I also learn that she’s
keeping a secret; a secret so painful, she’d do anything to keep me from
finding out. Can I get the woman I love to open up and let me in her heart
again? After two years apart, can we find our way back to each other?



This steamy romance is a roller coaster ride that will make you laugh, make
you hot, and even make you shed a few tears. It's a full-length standalone
novel. You do not have to read the book that came before this one. NO cheating,
NO cliffhangers, and a guaranteed Happily-ever-after! This book has adult
content for ages 18 and over.

And he needs the secrets Avery and her family are keeping – even if it means cutting them out of her pretty Capulet flesh.

Prepare to step into the dark and bloody underworld of California, as Lili St. Germain brings you a modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet, in the same vein as her bestselling Gypsy brothers series.

AVERY



I need somewhere to wipe my palms; but the puffy skirt of my designer gown doesn’t seem appropriate.

“Avery Capulet, everyone!”

Five hundred pairs of eyes look my way as I sashay down the middle of the glass-ceilinged ballroom my father has decked out with nauseating arrays of flowers, of twinkling fairy lights and enough champagne to fill the San Francisco Bay that shimmers beyond the heights of our palatial hotel.

Really, that’s what it’s called: The Palatial Hotel. Because it’s like a damn palace built on the edge of the financial district, full of Austrian crystal chandeliers and Calacatta marble floors.

It’s unseasonably hot in San Francisco this year, especially since we’re in the middle of a heat wave. People in Southern California would probably laugh at us as they roast through their regular hundred-plus summer days, but in the North we’re a little more used to clouds and fog.

I could blame my sweaty palms on the heat wave, but it’s crisp and cold inside the hotel’s grand glass enclosure. Cold like a refrigerator. Like a morgue.

You’re daydreaming again, Avery.

I take a deep breath and focus on my father’s booming voice, forgetting about the crowd of family and my father’s friends. I feel like a head of cattle being marched through a market to fetch the highest bidder. Because although this is merely my twenty-fifth birthday and not an auction, almost everybody is here for one reason.

Money.

My money.

The money that, according to the antiquated rules of our family’s trust, cannot be accessed by women heirs until they marry.

Which is complete fucking bullshit. We’re living in the age of equality, yet, according to the Capulet decree, all women born bearing the Capulet name would be penniless unless they marry a man of their father’s choosing.

Arranged marriage in the twenty-first century? In America?

I almost wish somebody in the crowd would shoot me, put me out of my misery.

“Think of all that money,” I hear somebody whisper as I walk through the middle of a parted crowd. I look in the direction of the voice, finding a guilty face staring straight back at me. Jacob Goldstein. Preppy guy, Ivy League, all that crap that people spend their lives and their fortunes making sure they’ve got. I went to high school with Jacob, the most exclusive prep school on the West Coast of the United States. He’s been trying to get into my pants since his voice broke and I grew out of my sports bra. Sorry, buddy, you were never on my shortlist.

Yes, I am the only child of the most powerful man in California. Daddy has enough collective money and assets to rival anyone on the Forbes rich list, but he prefers to be discreet with his fortune. If for no other reason than the fact that his wealth isn’t entirely honest. The Capulet family is the Rothschild family of the criminal underworld. Instead of owning and controlling banks, we own and control other things. Diamonds. Guns. Drugs. People. The crisp Benjamins in our vaults might be legal tender, but they likely weren’t obtained through legal channels.

And yes, we own hotels. Lots and lots of hotels. After all, you have to launder the money somewhere, right?

My family has so much money, you could never spend it all. It’s not in any one account, or controlled by any one person, but we have enough money to burn piles of the stuff as tall as this building, and not miss it at all.

Many of the men eyeing me off in the crowd find that staggering wealth extremely attractive.

Me, I learned a long time ago that money doesn’t mean much. Beyond granting you food, and shelter, and warmth, money doesn’t do much at all. It doesn’t hold you at night when your father is still working, always working. It doesn’t help you trust anybody who might be a romantic possibility.

Money doesn’t bring your mother back from the dead after she dies giving birth to your stillborn brother when you’re twelve years old. It doesn’t help you understand why your older sister drowned in your backyard when she was about to be married off, leaving you to inherit the burden of everything she was better equipped to handle than you will ever be.

Money: I’m about to have more of it than any of these greedy fucks could imagine.

And I don’t want it.

Not a nickel. Not a penny. Not a dirty dollar bill.

But for my father, I will take it. I will assume the throne of the Capulet family. It’s my destiny, whether I want it or not.

Watching Mine by Alex Grayson Release Blitz



IT'S LIVE!


COVER DESIGN by Cover Me Darling



My name is Nathan Reines… and I’m a voyeur. Yes, I like to
watch people have sex. Witnessing the desire on their faces as they writhe in
pleasure makes my blood hotter than the hottest flame. There’s nothing more
erotic than seeing their bodies tighten and tremble as they balance on the edge
of ecstasy. It makes my dick as hard as fucking steel.

I’ve never been tempted to have a lasting relationship with
a woman—why
get involved when watching from the sidelines is so fucking hot? But from the
first time I watched the woman in the apartment across from mine, I knew she
was different. She teases me with her soft touches and gentle caresses. She
tempts me with her silent moans and sexy whimpers. She excites me, and makes me
want more than I ever have before.

For two years, I refused to give in to my curiosity. That
is, until fate took things in her own twisted hands. Now that I know what it’s
like to experience Emberleigh in the flesh, there’s no damn way I could ever go
back to simply watching.



PLEASE DELETE IF NOT REVIEWING


NOW AVAILABLE:














“Hey,
Nathan,” Tegan calls. I look over and find him looking behind me. “Isn’t that—”
He stops midsentence, leans forward, causing Willow to lean with him, and
squints. A big grin spreads across his face a second later, and his eyes
flicker to me. “9B,” he finishes, then leans back in his chair.
My
back straightens, and I whip my head around. My eyes tighten into slits as I
look through the darkness of the room.
The
place is packed with bodies. Some at tables, some standing around talking to
others, some out on the dance floor. I look from one person to the next,
seeking out the only person of interest to me.
It
doesn’t take long before I find her. She’s out on the dance floor, facing me,
with some guy standing behind her. His hands are on her hips as she slowly
sways to the music. Her blonde hair is swept up high on her head. With her eyes
closed, she’s resting her head back against the guy’s chest with her arms
lifted and her hands tangled in his hair.
There’s
about thirty feet separating us and it’s dark in the room, but I can still see
the look of pleasure on her face. My dick, already at attention, grows thicker.
Someone
steps in my line of sight, blocking her from view, and a growl leaves my lips.
I’m just about to get up and knock the fucker away, when he moves.
Not
bothering to tell the others I’m leaving, I get up and grab my beer to move
closer. There’s a table at the edge of the dance floor that’s conveniently
empty. I turn the chair around so it faces the dance floor and take a seat.
There’s now only fifteen feet between us.
She’s
wearing a black silky halter-type dress that hugs her tits, then turns loose
and flows down the rest of her body. It stops midthigh, but with her arms
raised, it barely covers her cunt. I have no doubt if she were to bend over,
her ass would show. Her black sandals are high, and even in the dark, they
sparkle from some type of glittery shit that’s all over them.
My
eyes slowly rake down her body, taking in every inch of her. I’ve seen her
completely bare, but never this close. Her naked body is a work of art, but
seeing her this close, even clothed, is so much better.
When
my gaze finally tracks back up to her face, my damn dick begs to be let loose.
Her eyes are now open and she’s looking straight at me. She appears surprised,
which makes me wonder if she remembers me from this morning on the street.
The
shock is soon replaced with lust. Her tongue darts out to lick along her lips
and her gaze turns hooded. My body responds to her blatant show of want. She
doesn’t know me, but she still wants me from just a simple look.
She
slowly lowers her arms, her nails dragging over the guy’s neck, then runs them
down her sides. They skim along the outside of her tits, over his hands that
are still on her hips, to the tops of her thighs. Her eyes stay connected with
mine the whole time, as if she knows exactly what she’s doing to me. The guy
behind her pushes his hips forward, grinding into her ass. She bites her lip
and presses herself back against him. When his lips land on the side of her
neck, she tilts her head to the side, giving him better access.
My
hand tightens around my beer.
Fuck
me. This woman is a goddamn temptress and she knows just what to do to tempt my
control.
I
grab my dick and try in vain to make more room in my jeans. Her eyes widen when
I move my hand away. I bring my beer to my lips and take a long pull. With a
smirk, I sit back in my seat and enjoy the show.

Release Day Blitz for Minka Kent.












































































































She’s my roommate.

I know how she takes her tea, how she organizes her closet.

I know when she goes to bed each night, what she eats for breakfast, the passcode on her phone.

I know she calls her mother on Mondays, takes barre on Thursdays, and meets her friends for drinks on Fridays.

But more important than any of that … I know what she did.




















































Minka Kent has been crafting stories since before she could scribble her name. With a love of the literary dark and twisted, Minka cut her teeth on Goosebumps and Fear Street, graduated to Stephen King as a teenager, and now counts Gillian Flynn, Chevy Stevens, and Caroline Kepnes amongst her favorite authors and biggest influences. Minka has always been curious about good people who do bad things and loves to explore what happens when larger-than-life characters are placed in fascinating situations.

In her non-writing life, Minka is a thirty-something wife and mother who equally enjoys sunny and rainy days, loves freshly cut hydrangeas, hides behind oversized sunglasses, travels to warmer climates every chance she gets, and bakes sweet treats when the mood strikes (spoiler alert: it’s often).
