***COVER REVEAL*** The Billionaire and The Barfly by Adrianne James

Henry Maximus is a super-hero-loving geek and proud of it. He’s also a genius when it comes to business. It’s how he earned the title of CEO of Maximus Gaming … not to mention the billions of dollars in his bank account. Henry’s tried living the life of a bachelor, but a different girl every night has left him wanting more. Needing more.
Aubrey Vincent is in love with her job. She’ll love it even more if she lands the promotion that gets her out of her parent’s attic. She loves it so much that she has no time for relationships, not that she was ever very good at them to begin with. Aubrey is perfectly happy with the random, nameless men she picks up at the bar.
After a brief encounter with Aubrey on a business trip, Henry packs his bags and moves back to the small town where he grew up. Aubrey’s town. Aubrey attempts to find her way into Henry’s bed, while he tries everything to get into her heart. Will Henry’s plan to break down the walls Aubrey has built around her heart work or will his unbelievable million dollar offer scare her away?

Rum And Raindrops by Jean Oram


One nature guide. One accidental forest fire. And one steamy investigator hot on her tail.

Jen Kulak's good at running from her problems, so when she finds her best friend and boyfriend in bed together she burns rubber, never looking back. When Jen finds the quirky town of Blueberry Springs, she finally feels as though she's found a place she can call home, settle in, and get to know herself. With help from her boss, she rediscovers her love of nature and begins giving wilderness tours, which would be perfect if it weren’t for the fact that she may have accidentally just burned down the forest she depends upon for her fledgling business. And it would figure that Rob Raine, the man of her dreams, also happens to be the fire investigator hot on the case.

Can Jen find the strength to fight the accusations that could cost her everything? Or will she run again, ignoring the sparks that fly between her and Rob, and torching her chances at a happily ever after?

Find out in this small town contemporary romance, the third standalone book in the Blueberry Springs series.

Rob bent over, digging in the cabinet under the sink for Lord only knew what. Jen stood with her back against the shower door, admiring his firm ass. All that hiking through forests had certainly guaranteed a very nice view for her at the moment. She kind of hoped his you-know-what didn’t fall out of his boxers with all that bending over and digging around. Although she wouldn’t mind if it did. But if something did pop out of his shorts to give her the ol’ eyeball she was pretty sure with all this alcohol partying its way through her bloodstream and causing her synapses to misfire, she wouldn’t be able to handle seeing his you-know-what dance on out without the temptation to…never mind. 
Eyes up front. Clean, pure thoughts. White bunnies. Unicorns. Rainbows. 
Definitely stop staring at his nice buttocks. 
They may have assaulted people together tonight, but he was still hands off. 
God, she wished he could be hands-on. 
But she didn’t think the courts would take kindly to her sleeping with the investigator. Even if his job was done. He could still be called in to testify. Testify what a hottie she was with her clothes off. 
Wow. This alcohol…it must have been the Sex on the Beach shots. Infused with something hormonal because she really wanted to reach up his short’s leg and…and do a lot more than wait to see if she’d become a passive participant in a game of boxer-short-peek-a-boo. 
Oh, man. She needed to lock down her brain. And maybe cuff herself to the toilet while she was at it. Hmmm. Cuffs… 
No. No. No. 
Unicorns. Bunnies. Rainbows. Definitely not bunnies and unicorns doing it on a rainbow. 
She just about leapt into the shower to spray herself down with cold water when Rob turned, flashing her nothing but thigh above his tan line, breaking an ice pack from a first aid kit. Jesus. He would have made a good doctor. Those capable hands breaking the inner bag, giving the ice pack a vigorous shake, and now bringing her closer so he could gently apply it. What if she fainted? She could faint right now. Just sort of collapse into his arms. Let him catch her. Maybe he could nurse her back to health without any clothes on. 
"What did you do?" Amusement caused a lilt in his voice as he held the pack against the goose egg on her forehead. 
"I tackled Cody into the wall when the bouncer came to his rescue. I may have underestimated the physics involved in taking someone down." 
He laughed, tipping his head back to let the rich sound swell over her like fresh rain. 
She brushed the ice pack away, feeling the chill slipping too deep. She took the wet cloth off the vanity and dabbed at Rob’s lower lip. That bouncer had a hell of a swing. 
Rob leaned against the vanity, straddling her between his legs, bringing them eye to eye. He rested a warm hand on her waist, the heat of his grip traveling through her tank top, surrounding her in warmth, protection, and maybe…maybe something else she dared not think about. 
She let out a low chuckle. Who would have thought a bar brawl would break the final layer of ice between them? Let him draw her in closer. Their eyes met, holding conversations she couldn’t figure out. The timing, it was still off, wasn’t it? Behind their desire, they were both holding back, afraid. Unable. 
She sighed, resisting the urge to brush her chest against Rob in longing. He brushed away her hand with the cloth, pulling her closer. He pulled out her ponytail, running his fingers through her hair to isolate the purple streak. "Why purple?" 
She shrugged. "Why not?" 
"I like it," he said, wrapping it around his finger. He gave a gentle tug, pulling her face closer to his. 
Gray eyes. Warm. Flecks of blue. Hope. 
His lips hovered against hers. Not a kiss, but much more than a breath check. She closed her eyes and rested a hand against his cheek, enjoying the moment of being close. Breathing each other in. Not having to progress to anything. Just being. Knowing someone was there. 
She pushed her lips a fraction closer, kissing him softly. 
This was what she had been missing. What she had wanted all along. 
His lips explored hers. Warm and moist. Welcoming. 
A real kiss. 
A rock your world, weaken the knees kiss. 
A kiss for which all future kisses would be measured against. She collapsed into his warmth, the comfort of his body penetrating every wall she’d erected over the years. 
So simple. So innocent. And yet so much understanding gently flowing between them. 
A tentative, soft connection that ran deep. 
She slowly opened her eyes, leaning back. 
No future kisses would match its intimacy, tenderness, and trust. 
And she wanted more. 
They pulled together again, her hands running through his soft, short hair as she kissed him gently, telling his soul she could be patient. His arms encircled her waist, rubbed her back, brought her closer, joined their body heat. 
She placed a hand on his chest, arching away, breathless. Inside she was disheveled, everything out of place. She wanted too much. Too much of what she couldn't have.

Finding Freedom by Danielle Stewart

Author's Bio

Writing is a way to make a lot of different people do exactly what you want them to do. When I can't get my toddler to listen to me, I turn to my characters. They always cooperate!

I currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina with my husband and three year old son. I work hard to perfect the ability to write in a noisy house and create story lines while folding laundry.

Finding Freedom


No matter what people tell him, Jedda Wright is convinced he's nobody's hero. He's made his mistakes and paid dearly for them over the years. Suddenly freed from his past he's forced to find his way in a world he hardly recognizes. He's written himself off as a lost cause and pushes away any chance at love. Has he been punished enough to be worthy of his redemption or when given the chance will he make the same mistakes again? 

Willow has risen from the ashes of her former life and become one of the privileged. The knowledge that she did so at the expense of her brother's freedom has always haunter her. Now that Jedda's back should she finally thank him for the sacrifices he made to protect her? Or when her messy relationships follow her to Edenville will she inadvertently force her brother to risk his freedom again to save her life? 

Surrounded by Edenville's own ragtag team of do-gooders will Jedda and Willow navigate the dangers of their new lives and be able to find their freedom? Or will they both end up alone, back where they started?

Ebony's Review

Danielle Stewart Has Done It Again!
She has once again invited me to the small town of Edenville and entwined me into the lives of the residents there, only to have it feel like going home again.

Danielle Stewart has the uncanny ability to put you in the midst of a story, a town, a family and have you feel as though no other world exist.

Danielle’s writing skills are so phenomenal that she always leaves me wondering why. Why don’t I know these people? Why have I never been to this town? Why can’t I get enough of her writing? Why are there not enough to stars to rate her? Why does everything she writes touch my soul? Why has she become my favorite author of all time?

Finding Freedom” continues the story of the eclectic family from The Piper Anderson Series. They are pulling together again to protect one of their own, to be non-judgmental and to love unconditionally. They will hold you in high esteem, demand honesty, trust you explicitly….but at the same time they teach self-preservation.

Jedda has dealt with hardship and tragedy most of his few years on earth. He gave up his freedom for the most precious person in his life, his sister Willow. It was not a decision, it was not an option…it was a necessity. You see, his love for his sister has no boundaries.

Willow was moved from her surroundings as a child, given a second chance to grow, to blossom into a wonderful young lady, to become a wonderful pillar of society. Yet, she has been missing something or someone. Her brother Jedda was her protector, her savior yet……..

Our conscience is our worst enemy and are demons really ever laid to rest?

Jedda and Willow find themselves in Edenville, he is looking for a second chance; she needs to see the brother she lost so long ago. Somehow trouble always seems to follow the newcomers to this small, nurturing community, but the citizens never turn you away. They take you in, they support you, they surround you and they fight with and for you.

Danielle also has the ability to start a story and carry the characters through several books while all maintain their major roles. There are no cameos, only tried and true characters that remain with you for the duration.

If you have not read Danielle Stewart and The Piper Anderson Series I implore of you to do so. Start with Chasing Justice and follow the citizens, the lives, the loves, the stories of Edenville’s finest. They are truly a family.

Interview With Danielle Stewart

E&I:  Danielle, your writing is amazing for someone of your age, you must have an old soul. What is your writing background?

Danielle:  I’ve enjoyed writing for as long as I can remember. I wasn’t good at much in school so when my sixth grade teacher told me I had a gift it was the first time I felt good about my academics. That was a turning point for me and even today when I’m talking to kids I try to focus on what they do well. It can make a difference for the rest of their lives.

E&I:  When I work, cluster in my area is one thing that drives me insane. What about you? What is your pet peeve and what is your work area like?

Danielle:  This is the most difficult part of my job so far. I just CAN’T work while my house is messy. My fingers won’t type. For a while I didn’t make the connection and found my writing process slow and disjointed. Once I realized that the chores in the house were weighing on me I moved my day around to make sure some things were done first, before I started writing. I hear a lot of writers say they jump right in first thing in the morning and then break to do other things. I struggle with that and I’m glad I adjusted my schedule.

E&I:  I notice your fan base is growing consistently. How important are your fans to you?

Danielle:  Everything. That simple. I wouldn’t say that I struggled with confidence but like any new mom who left the working world I was feeling a bit undefined as a person. To wake up in the morning and have emails waiting from folks who connected with something I created is a wonderful way to start the day and the fans have fueled my drive to keep writing.

E&I:  What are your hobby/hobbies?

Danielle:  I really enjoy crocheting. It’s soothing and you get to see a finished product before too long.

E&I:  Does having Author Ruth Cardello as an aunt increase the pressure of being a great writer?

Danielle:  Ruth is the hardest person for me to show my work to. I’m always slow to hit send when it comes to her. She’s an awesome writing mentor and has shaped so much of what I do. I just find myself nervous see her opinion but she’s always so supportive.

E&I:  Not only is Ruth Cardello your aunt, but Wanye Tripp is also a member of your family. Are there any aspiring writers in your family that you will mentor?

Danielle:  I’m always on the look out for writers to pay it forward to. My family is loaded with talented people!

E&I:  Where do you see yourself in your career as a writer in the next five years?

Danielle:  I’m absolutely in love with what I’m doing right now. If I’m still doing it in five years I’ll be over the moon.

E&I:  Tell us what makes Danielle Stewart the next best thing in the writing world?

Danielle:  I’m still learning. I read any book I can get my hands on and watch every author out there. I’ve always believed that you don’t have to be the biggest or the best, but you should be the hardest working.

E&I:   I know you are married and have one son. What else does Danielle Stewart want her readers to know?

Danielle:  I’d love people to know that I love hearing from them. Email me. Facebook me. I answer them all!

E&I:  What are your views on social media for marketing purposes and how has social media affected you?

Danielle:  Social media is at times a necessary evil and other times it’s my favorite place to escape. It is truly what makes the indie publishing world go round.

E&I:  Do you ever get writers block and if so how do you get rid of the damn thing?

Danielle:  For me writers block sets in when I have other things on my to-do list. The best thing for me is to hurry up and get things done so that I can have free brain space for writing.

E&I:  Is there anything else you would like to add that we have not included?

Danielle:  You covered it all!  Great questions.
