Tibby Armstrong

Blog Tour for Surrender The Dark by Tibby Armstrong 

 As a provocative series of paranormal temptation begins, a vampire king seduces the supernaturally gifted man hunting him. But when the stakes are literally life or death, their struggle for control is no game. Benjamin Fuller is a hunter, born and bred. Blinded as a child by the vampire who slaughtered his family, he’s blessed with a second sight that allows him to catch and kill his quarry. What his gift can’t help him see coming is his fierce, almost carnal attraction to the mystery man who claims to be a fellow hunter and whose touch triggers both lust and revulsion. When he gains the upper hand, Benjamin vows to bring his enemy to his knees. After many years spent in exile, the only one who can help restore Tzadkiel Dragoumanos to his rightful place as War King is a blind hunter with golden curls, a lithe dancer’s physique, and distinctive facial scars—scars Tzadkiel gave him two decades ago. The mere scent of Benjamin Fuller provokes an unwelcome rush of insatiable desire. Yet to win an all-out supernatural war, Tzadkiel must resist the ravenous hunger to possess his prey—for now.

Benjamin jerked back at the contact with Tzadkiel’s mouth and attempted to shove the vampire away. Tzadkiel, however, was quicker. Hand gripping Benjamin’s nape in a way that spoke of centuries—perhaps millennia—of practice, Tzadkiel held him immobile. The royal purple aura flashed and brightened with something Benjamin’s hunter-senses recognized as desire. Flesh, warm and supple, not marble hard and cold, met Benjamin’s lips. The vampire kisses like a human. Benjamin’s first thought struck him as absurd, and then he couldn’t think at all. Lips that had begged him for water, for silence, for life, now demanded passion. Sparks of white and deep mauve obscured the subterranean world around him, focusing his attention on the flash-bang of his arousal. As before, contact with the vampire blew him apart from the inside. Adrenaline, fear, animal instinct, all combined to light his nerves with an awareness he’d only experienced when fighting the heinous creatures. In short, he felt alive. Lungs burning, Benjamin gasped when Tzadkiel let him up for air, then pulled his nemesis in for more. Drunk with lust, he barely registered voices in the tunnel, or the polite cough and tap on his shoulder. Taste. He needed to taste. Plunging his tongue into a rough and tumble battle with Tzadkiel’s, he tasted his own blood on the vampire’s tongue. Tzadkiel growled and clamped his hand more insistently on Benjamin’s nape, forcing him to open his mouth until every spare inch of his world was filled with a different kind of mayhem. Tinged with smoke and salt and a warm earthy essence, Tzadkiel tasted of nightmares laced with forbidden desire. A one-hit addict, Benjamin couldn’t get enough of the resulting rush. The cough and tap came again, more insistent this time. Benjamin shrugged it off, refusing to rouse from this wonderful dream, and attempted to fall back to sleep—to fall back into to Tzadkiel’s embrace.

EXCERPT
 Prince Arthur:
When we reach the vault room, there are two guards standing at the door. Normally there is just one, sitting on the inside; but for nights like tonight, there are a total of six. I nod, and one of them opens the door.
“Good evening, fellows,” I say.
“Good evening, Your Highness.”
Once inside the room, we go through the same routine with the other four men. I go to the keypad and press the code, then hold my face in front of the camera for a retina scan. When I look down at Tessa, she actually looks impressed.
“A little Bond-esque, no?” I ask.
“Very.”
“Come on, Moneypenny, let’s get you something for that beautiful neck of yours.” I tug her hand and pull her in with me before she can say no.
She’s already shaking her head, but I hold up one finger. “I can see those Sharpe family brains of yours going to work on ten different reasons why you won’t borrow a necklace, but I have already prepared counterarguments, and since we are now twelve minutes behind schedule, please allow me. One, they’re already paid for, some of them hundreds of years ago, so it’s not coming out of anyone’s taxes. Two, like the books in the library, they’re going to waste in here. Three, for the first time in my life, I want to share something with someone else—someone who deserves to feel like a queen, even if she’ll only allow herself that for one measly little evening. Four, I have this fantasy of seeing you in only the jewels. Maybe the heels could stay.”
Tessa laughs and her cheeks go pink. “All right. One necklace, but make it a cheap one.”
I raise one eyebrow. “Define cheap.”
“Less than a kitchen stool.”
“How about less than a car?”
“Sofa.”
“I said ‘queen.’ Would a queen really wear a sofa around her neck?” I reach up and run my fingertips along the base of her neck.
“Would she wear a car?”
“Good point.” I lean down and kiss the crook of her neck. “How about this? You choose whichever one you like the best, and I won’t tell you how much it’s worth.”
I continue to brush my lips along her skin, then move up to her earlobe. The other night, I discovered a little spot at the base of her ear that turns her to putty. After a moment of some careful work, I get what I want. A breathy, little ‘okay’ escapes her lips.
Meet the Author
MJ Summers currently resides in Edmonton, Canada, with her husband, three young children, and their goofy dog. When she's not writing romance novels, she loves reading (obviously), snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), and long walks in the woods near her house. MJ also spends a lot more time thinking about doing yoga than actually doing yoga, which is why most of her photos are taken ‘from above’. She also loves shutting down restaurants with her girlfriends. Well, not literally shutting them down, like calling the health inspector or something. More like just staying until they turn the lights off.
MJ is a member of the Romance Writers of America, as well as the International Women's Writing Guild.
MJ would love to hear from you! She does her best to respond to all inquiries and emails personally. If you would like her to attend a book club meeting via Skype please contact her to book a date.

Love & Compromise
By Chantel Rhondeau

Blurb:
A secret agent struggling to redeem herself gets stuck with a cocky private investigator - sparks are sure to fly. Can they work together and catch a killer?

Hacker Jenessa Jones is down on her luck. After trusting the wrong man and nearly handing a terrorist group everything they needed to destroy the country, she’s eager to prove herself as the professional she truly is. All she needs is a new case.

As desperate as she is for a job, last thing she wants is to be stuck with President Sharp's domineering son, Kole. When a killer strikes in Washington D.C., the President specifically requests her assistance, leaving her little choice. Her mission? Help Kole catch the killer while pretending to be his new social-climbing girlfriend.

Burned by love in the past, Kole Sharp doesn’t want a woman hanging around. However, this private detective is willing to do what it takes to protect his family and country. As more members of the secret anti-terror board receive threats against their lives, Jenessa and Kole race to find the culprit. They didn’t expect their biggest problem to be fighting feelings for each other.

Each Agent book is a complete story and can be read as a standalone. However, due to possible spoilers, the most enjoyment will be had by reading the books in order. If you love mystery, romance, and a bit of danger, buy the Agents in Love series and start reading today!

Snippet #1
The smell of musky cologne pulled her from her gloomy thoughts, and Jenessa glanced over her shoulder. The handsome man she’d noticed at the beginning of the evening stood at her shoulder, looking down at her. She had thought she caught him watching her earlier, but she’d been too shy to approach him.
He was dressed in a black business suit and dark brown hair fell across his forehead. What most caught her attention was how his angular features somehow worked quite well with his intense brown eyes and full lips.
A partial scowl contorted his face into something less than handsome, and Jenessa gulped nervously. He appeared unhappy to be near her, so why did he come over? It wasn’t likely that he wanted to ask for a dance, not with that look on his face.
“So, you’re the woman I’m supposed to fall madly in love with?” He studied her for a second, tapping his index finger against his lips. “I guess you’ll have to do.”
Too shocked for words, Jenessa struggled to close her gaping mouth. How rude could someone be?


Snippet # 2

He set her suitcase near the bookshelf to the right of the doorway and crossed the room, opening the double doors to the walk-in. “Some of these might be out of fashion and old, but they were all only worn once.” Clarissa had been wasteful like that, and it took Kole so long to realize that she was after money and power, not his love.
Jenessa came up next to him and let out a low whistle. “That’s a lot of clothes. You wore each only once, huh? You take this cross dressing seriously.”
“Wore them... cross dressing?” He whipped around to face her when the words penetrated his brain. “These aren’t my dresses, you idiot. They belonged to my ex.”

Snippet # 3

She chewed on her lip, suddenly nervous about how close he was. Her heart pounded so rapidly that she wondered if he could hear it. All she wanted was for him to lean in and kiss her again.
She blinked several times, mouth dried out and body aching for his touch. “I trust you with my very life, Kole. Maybe we got off to a rough start, but this past week has shown me that you’re the most honorable man I’ve ever known.”
His eyes went wide. “You really mean that, don’t you?”
Knowing she shouldn’t tempt fate but not caring, Jenessa moistened her lips with the tip of her tongue. “Yes. You’d never hurt me.”
“No, of course not. I trust you too.” Kole closed the distance between their mouths, sucking hungrily at her lips. His hot hands roved across her stomach, moving upward to rub against her breasts.
Jenessa let out an involuntary moan as she sucked at his lower lip. He smelled so damn good and the taste of him excited her in ways she thought would never happen again. Her entire body tingled with expectation and want. She ran her hands through his hair, rubbing his head and neck, wondering if she dared rub him lower.
