Cover Reveal: The Ghost Files Vol. 4 Part 1 by Apryl Baker...


Title: THE GHOST FILES, VOL.4 PART 1
Author: Apryl Baker
Publisher: Limitless Publishing, LLC
Release Date: December 20, 2016
Cover Designer: Wicked by Design

PRE-ORDER:
AMAZON US ** AMAZON UK ** B&N ** iBOOKS

Sleep, little children, 
all safe in your beds. 
But when the boogeyman knocks, 
if you are up watching… 
he’ll make sure that you wish you were dead! 

Once every one hundred and fifty years he emerges from the darkest depths to feed. With each soul he takes, he grows stronger. There is but one gift he needs in order to gain the power he seeks. One gift that will allow him to walk amongst all the precious little children.

And it’s the one gift Mattie Hathaway possesses…the ability to bring images to life with just a drop of her blood. The demon Silas has warned her to never reveal this ability, not even to her father who shares her power to communicate with the dead. She’s heeded his warning, but hiding it may no longer be an option.

Children are disappearing all over the Charlotte area. When their bodies are recovered, they are always the same—broken, beaten, and bruised. Fear is spiraling out of control in the Queen City as parents glance nervously around each corner, seeing the boogeyman in every shadow.

When one little girl goes missing in Mattie’s neighborhood, it’s up to her and Officer Dan Richards to find the truth. In doing so, she uncovers a far greater evil than she’s ever come up against. The one thing she was bred to defeat.

Deleriel. A fallen angel…one of the first demons. He is powerful, ambitious, and now that Mattie is on his radar, she’s all he needs to complete his arsenal.

Amid of whirlwind of secrets coming to light, Mattie is faced with uncovering the truth about her own heritage. She must come to grips with it before she can begin to prepare for the battle of a lifetime…a battle she never asked for but is caught in the middle of. 

Can she face her own truths before it’s too late?


MEET APRYL BAKER: So who am I? Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.

Growing up in a small town, I learned a lot of values and morals, I also learned parents have spies everywhere and there’s always someone to tell your mama you were seen kissing a particular boy on a particular day just a little too long. So when you get grounded, what is there left to do? Read! My Aunt Jo gave me my first real romance novel. It was a romance titled “Lord Margrave’s Deception.” I remember it fondly. But I also learned I had a deep and abiding love of mysteries and anything paranormal. As I grew up, I started to write just that and would entertain my friends with stories featuring them as main characters.

Now, I live Huntersville, NC where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.

I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.

Sable Hunter's Hell Yeah! Kindle World...



Connected by blood ties and bonds of friendship, the Hell Yeah! world chronicles the lives and loves of a family of Texas men and women, the McCoys, who live by the code of the cowboy. Adventure, unabashed sexual tension and tender intimacy plays out in a saga of stories that offer action and humor, all set in scenic locales from the Hill Country of Texas to the mysterious bayous of Louisiana. The plots of the tales are as varied as our own lives can be, but the world is one where right prevails, love conquers all, and holding out for a hero is not an impossible dream.



Hell Yeah! Kindle World

Presented by Sable Hunter

The Pink Rose

of the Prairie



by Ginger Ring 

Are you willing to travel not only miles, but years, to find your one true love?


Rose McAlister was always the perfect daughter and student, but it was never enough for her high society family. Tired of the big city spotlight, Rose accepts a teaching job at the most remote location hiring – in the middle of the prairie in South Dakota. This was her chance for adventure, her opportunity to shine as an educator, and her shot at forgetting the ex-boyfriend who left her heart torn to pieces and her bank account in shambles. In South Dakota, Rose vows she’ll find someone to love and trust.
Seth Peterson is a wanderer. Not surprising since he didn't know where he was going or where he came from. When a beautiful, flower-tattooed woman enters his life claiming to be from the future, he doesn't know which is crazier: her, or the fact that he is falling in love and wanting to put down roots. Before he can decide if it’s best to follow his aimless path or to obey his heart, women are being stabbed to death in town and it looks like Rose might be next on the killer's list. Can this new love survive not only the slash of steel, but also the test of time?

Chasing Butterflies 

by Jennifer Labelle 

"She’s a tattooed bad girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and he’s the same swoon worthy cowboy she remembered from high school.

They’ve established a good life in Minneapolis for the past eight years. Sawyer finds her passion through her art and tattooing, and her sister finds the love of her life. Her happiness disintegrates when Carley dies in a fire and she’s left utterly alone in the world.

But first he needs to come up with a plan to woo her. Now that he has her in his sights again he doesn’t plan on ever letting her go. All he needs is that second chance…

Cadillac Cowboy

Kandi Silvers 


When entertainment’s prodigal son and daughter return to their hometown, a course for collision is set—the Texas will never be the same and hell is raised.

Former reality star, housewife Kendall Swanson, has it all. A luxury high-rise condo in Los Angeles, an expensive convertible and her job is personal assistant to television's hottest producer. What more could a girl want? Certainly not what her boss asked of her. Go back to her small town, and for his next reality TV sensation, find the ultimate single cowboy to host the ranch “makeovers”. Faster than you can say “stuffed turkey” it’s goodbye palm trees, hello Kerrville, AKA Hell, and yes, it’s frozen over. At least on her parent’s front lawn. How bad could the holidays with her family be? Other than the reindeer in the house and Deacon Cutes being back in town.
Deacon Cutes wasn't expecting Kendall to blow into town in an over-priced car and designer handbag. He should've known she'd be back, he was here for the same reason. The only reason anyone returned to the small town was for weddings, funerals and the occasional holiday. One wedding, one after party and he'd be back on the road singing country songs to star crazed fans—make that after thirty days of community service for a minor infraction.
Wait, did the reindeer just talk? Time to lay off the sauce and not the cranberry kind.

Kandi Silvers 

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, I still call Sin City home. I’ve always been a sucker for romance novels and movies, especially romantic comedies. Writing is more than just words to me it’s captivating slices of characters’ lives and sharing them with the reader. I’m a firm believer that heroes and heroines had a life before page one of any story and their past as well as life experiences, made them who they are.
Coming from the southwest I have a major soft spot for cowboys, but also love suspense, a bit of intrigue and kick-ass heroines. Of course, there is always the time to slip in a good paranormal. I try to keep my writing diverse and always on the naughty side. Happy reading!

From the Shadows

The equalizers are on the move, and the stakes have never been higher.  
Women are disappearing from Galveston Island’s port, and Gordon McKay faces his first mission as an equalizer: bring down the human trafficking operation and the organization responsible. He expected to find trouble. He just didn’t expect it to be in the form of a take-no-prisoners firebrand like Destiny Miller. 
Destiny lost her brother to war two years ago, and now a stranger claiming to be his friend comes waltzing up the steps of her bed and breakfast. He has more secrets than truths, but the eyes never lie. She’s caught in a whirlwind of trouble and somehow Gordon McKay is right at the heart of it.

Kiley Endicott has never been a poster child for moderation. Married and widowed young, she’s raising twins on her own. Since impulse has always ruled her life, it’s not easy being a sedate parent under the critically watchful eye of her in-laws. 
A Friday night assist at her brother’s bar, leads Kiley to a hook up with Luke Danvers. Even in the cab of a truck, he’s an awesome lover. She wants more. But she’s got to be circumspect, nobody can know. 
Luke hasn’t had fun in—forever. But Kiley Endicott lets it all hang out when they’re together and alone. It’s more than just fantastic sex, but God knows he can’t get enough of that either. She says nobody can know. Okay, he’s trained in stealth. He sets up a call system, a taboo frequency guaranteeing her twenty four hour access to him every day. 
What happens when impulse collides with control, forcing maximum overload? Melt down.   

Gem Sivad

Hi, I’m Gem Sivad. When I moved to the southern part of an enchanted kingdom and found my Prince Charming, he inspired me to write contemporary, historical, and paranormal romance.
Although I have hermit tendencies, occasionally I venture out of the writer’s den to meet readers at book signing events. I hope we someday meet,.

Excerpt – Chasing Butterflies by Jennifer Labelle 
Sawyer actually googled him, and pigs were surely about to fly. Mr. Jagger Hale of Hale’s Custom’s had done good for himself and it actually made her happy to know it. If someone had mentioned a month ago that she’d be intentionally looking him up she’d have told them they were out of their damn minds, but there she was driving down a country road to see the man.
Was she crazy? Probably.
Curious? Most definitely, and had acted on an impulse.
Once she’d finished her phone call with Toby she’d felt too melancholy and needed an escape. The Jagger she once knew was incredible at distractions, and she desperately needed a break from the pain of losing the only family she had left.
She was all alone in the world.
So after putting all but one of the roses in a vase, she’d got the information she’d needed off of her phone and put it all in her GPS, hoping she wouldn’t be interrupting anything too important.
 About ten minutes later she stood in front of a beautifully refurbished barn listening to loud country music coming from the inside. Sawyer leaned against the door and admired the shirtless, sexy cowboy busy at work. His dark hair was tousled as if he’d run his fingers through it several times, messy. His tanned skin glistened, oily, slick, and a few drops of sweat ran from his temples down to his pecs going lower across his washboard abs and she licked her lips. Taking advantage of the opportunity to ogle him without being caught, her gaze continued south. Thick thighs, a fine ass, and a very nice bulge was encased in blue jeans that molded him to perfection.
Sweet Lord! She fanned herself, and gripped the rose in her hand tighter as she walked inside to make her presence known. It hadn’t taken long for him to notice her, his eyes widened, he pulled the white mask down that was covering his mouth and nose, tossed it aside and he smiled big. Her heart swelled, and she took a deep breath to calm her nerves. 
Jagger turned off the music.
“Got your gift.” Sawyer held up the single flower she’d brought and sniffed it. “They’re beautiful thank you.”
“Had to get your attention somehow.” He shrugged. “Still have to talk.”
“I know.” She sighed. “And, I suppose we will. What are ya working on over here?” She’d decided to give him a chance once she realized how persistent he’d become to gain her attention, but she needed to take it slow before they got into anything heavy. The past was hard for her to relive, she was better than that now. No longer the trash they all thought she was.
“Just doing some finishing touches on the trailer.” He grunted.
“It’s amazing. Tebow?”
Jagger nodded. He’d gotten the brand from the sign as you entered the McCoy ranch. His work was his own form of art and he liked to add a few personal touches to each individual customer. It was a large uppercase letter T with a curved line on the bottom. He’d been able to spruce it up by giving it a 3D effect.
“Wow, so you’re like a jack of all trades huh?” Sawyer smiled and nudged his arm with her shoulder. From what little she’d read on his business she knew he was a welder, but when she’d arrived she’d seen him painting this on the side. It was impressive.
“Sort of.” He grinned back. “Enough about me, I’m more interested in you right now.”
“Really?” She stepped closer, so close she could smell him and nearly groaned. There was that magnetic pull again that she remembered. Fate was such a fickle bitch.
“It’s good to see you.” He nodded, and reached out to tuck a lock of hair behind her ear.
“You know, I’m on the phone with Toby catching up and talking about Carley, and then there’s someone at my door with a note and these gorgeous flowers. It got me thinking about the other sweet gestures from you and you succeeded in gaining my attention again. It was perfect timing too.” She said, and then took a step away from him so she could pace while she continued. “Lord knows I love Carley with all of my heart, but there’s so much going on I can’t think about her right now. It hurts too much. Do you know what it’s like to lose everything important?”
“Who’s Toby?” Jagger asked, and it made her laugh so hard.
“Out of everything I just said your main concern is who Toby is?”

About Picture Imperfect

Genre: Humorous romantic suspense, Romantic comedy mystery
Just when she thought she had her life on autofocus...
Photographer Ursula Scott is six short months from buying her boss’s studio and helping her family knock down a massive debt. She can put up with his hairball antics for that long, right?
Right?
But, oh, he makes life difficult. She can barely restrain herself when he hogs credit for her assignments, and now half-naked weirdos are responding to his ad for her first magazine photo spread. On top of that, someone is sabotaging the studio. Worse, she discovers her sexy apprentice is a former cop practicing his newbie PI skills on the case—and she’s a suspect!
Suddenly, Ursula’s dreams and hard work seem about to go up in smoke. In more ways than one.
Well, not on her watch.
When Gabe McKenzie moves home following the shooting that kyboshed his career, he doesn’t expect to get sucked into finding the culprit wreaking havoc at his uncle’s photography studio. He certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Ursula Scott, a long-legged brunette with a definite motive and a desire to play Nancy Drew. Even as he clears her, the sabotage escalates into a bizarre stalking, placing Ursula...and Gabe’s hopes for their future...in danger.
If only he can convince her to stop snooping around and let him do his job as a PI, before an unknown menace threatens not only her dreams—but her life.

Chocolate, Sex, & Other Tasty Treats for the Soul by Award Winning Author Kellie Kamryn...


As far as Marnie is concerned—two’s company, and three is never a crowd.
Marnie Harder wants to find love like everyone else. The only catch—she desires to be the third in couple. She has her sights set on her hot neighbor, Madison Williams, and her boyfriend, Drake Ellison. The night Madison knocks on Marnie’s door to borrow some sugar, Marnie gets a taste of something sweet. And when Madison’s boyfriend joins the party, Marnie binges on more than the candy he brings with him.
Leave it to her family and her brother’s meddling monkey to spoil the morning after. But in the wake of candy wrappers, wild passion, and broken furniture, will Marnie be left craving more, or will love sweeten the deal?
Excerpt:
Oh, great line. Madison swallowed the saliva pooling in her mouth from sneaking a peek at Marnie’s cleavage. Since the day Marnie had brought them cake, all she’d been able to think about was interesting places to eat cake off of Marnie’s body. She loved Drake with all her heart, but as a bisexual female, there was something special about being with a woman, and she missed it.
Since she and Marnie had only spoken a handful of words, she couldn’t explain the fierce attraction she had for the green-eyed brunette. She cleared her throat, hoping to rid her head of dirty thoughts at the same time. Lifting her chin to indicate Marnie’s attire, she said, “I hope I’m not interrupting anything.”
“Nope. Not really. Just me. Home. Alone. On a Friday night.” Marnie’s cheeks coloured.
So cute! But why would she be embarrassed to be caught at home alone? Unless she’s done something naughty. Madison liked naughty. Inhaling, she caught a whiff of pussy. As the delicious scent permeated her senses, a jolt of desire slashed through her abdomen and travelled straight to her cunt.
What am I doing? Her desire for her new neighbour overrode common sense. She had to find out first if Marnie was even into women, never mind a threesome between her and her boyfriend. One thing at a time.
Drake had embraced Madison’s bisexuality with enthusiasm, telling her that any time she found a woman she wanted to fuck, he’d be there. What more could a woman ask for?
A woman. This woman in front of me. Deep in her gut, she knew her sexy neighbour could make everything complete. But, even if Marnie happened to be into women, that didn’t mean she’d be into men, too.
Marnie folded her arms across her chest, squishing her tits together. The sight made Madison’s mouth water all over again.
“So... You really need to borrow some sugar?” Marnie asked.
“Um... Yeesss...”
Marnie raised an eyebrow, but stepped aside to let Madison enter. “Sugar?”
“Yes, sugar.” As Madison entered the apartment, her arm grazed Marnie’s breast through the fabric of the robe. The distinct scent of pussy grew stronger, and Madison couldn’t stand it any longer. It would be a bold move but her brain insisted she get right to the point.
As Marnie shut the door, Madison blocked her, forcing the brunette against the door. Green eyes widened with surprise as Madison stepped into her personal space, leaving only centimetres separating them. “I sure hope you have some sugar for me.” Her voice came out a sexy purr.
Marnie’s brows scrunched together in confusion. “What do you mean exactly?”
Courage faltering, she cleared her throat. Just go for it. Madison inhaled deep through her nose and closed her eyes for a second, letting the scent of pussy fill her senses once more. Her eyes popped open, her gaze boring holes into green sparkly ones. “Are you busy tonight?”
Marnie wiggled in a nervous gesture under Madison’s intense stare. “Um, no... Why?”
“I want to crash your party for one.” Madison could tell she’d taken Marnie completely by surprise. Damn. At that moment, she wanted to slap herself. I’m coming on too strong. Whatever happened to “Hi, how are you? Nice weather we’re having...” Oh no, she just came out and embarrassed the one woman who had haunted her sexual thoughts for a few weeks now.
Oh, well. In for a penny as they say. “I’ve wanted you since the first time I saw you,” she blurted, placing her hands on the door on either side of Marnie’s head.
Marnie’s eyes popped open wide in disbelief. “Really?”
“Yes, really.” Madison hung her head and raked a hand through her hair. “Sorry! God, I’ve messed this up.”
“You... are direct. More than I have been.”
“It’s a bad habit,” she admitted, tone sheepish. “Wait—what did you say?”
“You are far more direct than me.” The blush on Marnie’s cheeks deepened.
“You mean you want my sugar?” Madison asked.
“Well, I did bring you a cake.” A small smile crinkled at the corners of Marnie’s mouth.
Madison grinned. “And it was good cake, too.”
Marnie giggled. “Believe me, if you knew my family, this isn’t the worst way anyone has been direct about anything.”
The two women stared at each other.
Madison spoke first. “So.”
“So.”
Madison drew a few strands of Marnie’s hair down between her fingers. “Soft, like I’d imagined.”
“You’ve really thought about me?” Marnie questioned.
“Yeah. A lot.” Madison sighed. She’d fantasized about Marnie between her legs even when Drake was getting her off.



Bio: Award-winning author Kellie Kamryn is a retired elite gymnast and competitive coach. These days she is captain of her crew of four wearing many a hat: chauffeur, cook, maid, and arm chair psychologist, although her favorite title, and the one she answers to most, is “Mom”. Even with her busy life, she creates time for Baguazhang (Bagua) training at least twice a week, a challenging martial art form. While her friends would describe her as sweet, her readers know she’s got a sassy side, and with fourteen books and two anthologies to her credit since 2011, most days she can be found channeling her sass into writing stories and poetry that sweep readers away into other worlds. When her muse requires a break, she channels her creative energy into bringing many a tale to life through her work as a narrator.

Winner of the RONE (Reward of Novel Excellence) Award for Best Erotica 2012, Kellie is also a workshop presenter, and motivational speaker, having presented at the Moonlight and Magnolias GRWA Conference in 2011, and most recently her in-person and online workshop – A Novel Creation. One of her latest books, Sugar Daddy Wanted: Now Accepting Applications, was nominated for Best Novella in the RONE Awards for 2013, with other 5-star reviews to her writing credits.
