Blog Tour and Giveaway for Walking Out of War by Scott Bury


Walking Out of War
by Scott Bury
Genre: Historical Adventure, War

Ukraine, 1944: After the Soviets burned the Ukrainian city of Ternopyl to the ground to crush the stubborn Nazi occupiers, they rounded up every remaining Ukrainian man around for the Red Army’s final push on Germany. Maurice Bury, Canadian citizen, Ukrainian resistance fighter and intelligence officer, is thrust once again into the death struggle between Hitler’s Germany and Stalin’s USSR.
Fighting across the Baltics in the autumn of 1944 is tough and bloody. Then the Red Army enters Germany, where they’re no longer liberators—they’re the long-feared Communist horde, bent on destruction, rape and revenge. The Communists are determined to wipe Nazism from the face of the earth. And the soldiers want revenge for Germany's brutal invasion and occupation.
Maurice has determined his only way out of this hell is to survive until Nazi Germany dies, and then move home to Canada. But to do that, he’ll have to not only walk out of war, but elude Stalin’s dreaded secret police.



Scott Bury can't stay in one category.
After a 20-year career in journalism, he turned to writing fiction. "Sam, the Strawb Part," a children's story, came out in 2011, with all the proceeds going to an autism charity. Next was a paranormal short story for grown-ups, "Dark Clouds."
The Bones of the Earth, a historical fantasy, came out in 2012. It was followed in 2013 with One
Shade of Red, an erotic romance.
Army of Worn Soles, published in 2014, tells the true story of Maurice Bury, a Canadian drafted into the USSR's Red Army to face the German invasion of the Soviet Union.
Invited to participate in two Kindle Worlds, he published Torn Roots: A Lei Crime Kindle World Novella and Jet - Stealth: A Jet Kindle World Novella. Both came out in July 2015.
In between writing books and blog posts, Scott helped found an author's cooperative publishing venture, Independent Authors International. He is also President of author's professional association BestSelling Reads.

Blindsided by Ava Ashley Book Cover Reveal


Blindsided
Ava Ashley
Publication date: March 6th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance, Sports

Sex and spice, and everything cold as ice. That’s what Lennox Hardy is made of.
At least, those are the cold hard facts I discover when one night of indiscretion reads like a tabloid headline and I get knocked up by the womanizing bad boy and Sacramento Cougars’ quarterback…
…and he can’t even remember me.
It’s the story of a lifetime when I become wedged between identical twins with a shady past and an even shadier future as one brother plots and the other fights to gain control over a consuming rage.
The real story is…will love consume us first?
EXCERPT:
Carefully, I slip out from under the covers and drop to my knees on the floor. Maybe I can find some sort of evidence before he wakes up. Something that will appease Giselle, but not something that could hurt Lennox in any kind of way. I slowly turn and start to crawl away from the bed. Lennox rustles behind me. I freeze. I dare a slow head turn in his general direction.
The rise and fall of his chest is steady. Even. Rhythmic. A peaceful, contented smile curls along the edges of his mouth. For a half a second, I take a little bit of pride that I may be at least partially responsible for putting it there. He has one arm crooked, hand tucked beneath a tousled mop of sheepdog blonde. Long, golden lashes brush his high cheekbones as he sleeps undisturbed.
I exhale a heavy, but quiet, sigh of relief and continue my subtle egress. I get halfway across the room when I freeze in my tracks.
What am I doing? This isn’t me! What are you going to do? Dig through his trash? Root through his mail?
On hands and knees in the middle of the floor, I start to give myself a well-deserved mental ass chewing.
“Well, now there’s a position I could get used to.” Lennox’s voice teases in a sleepy drawl behind me. My head droops in embarrassment.
Lennox yawned like lion as he stretched his toned arms over his head. “So, I’ve heard of the ‘walk of shame’, but I gotta admit. I’ve never seen a ‘crawl of shame.’ Where are you off to?”
Alright, Sloane. Suck it up.


Author Bio:
Amazon bestselling author Ava Ashley may look like the girl next door, but her steamy romances reveal a very naughty side. Raised in small town Ohio and now living in Homer, Alaska it’s amazing that she hasn’t increased the average temperature in her area of the state with her steamy writing. And she loves reading new adult romance novels as much as she enjoys writing them.
Ava likes spending time outdoors and does a lot of hiking and cycling with her husband and four children. When she can get away on her own, she’ll often take pen and paper along, find a secluded spot and let the environment inspire her. Of course, that inspiration frequently results in characters tearing each other’s clothes off, but you would expect nothing less from a romance writer.



GIVEAWAY!
Ava has 3 SIGNED PRINT copies and 3 eCopies of Blindsided up for grabs right now.

Release Blitz for Sinister Little Overture by Scarlette Rayne

Title: Sinister Little Overture
Series: Book 1 of The Symphony Noir Collection
Author: Scarlette Rayne
Genre: Romance  
Release Date: February 22, 2017
Alexis is used to turning heads with her looks and capturing attention with her unmatched piano skills. They’ve allowed her to travel the world, take any man she wanted, and live in the fast lane.
However, when she runs into her former flame, Travis McGregor, her skills at playing the game of seduction will be put to the test.
She can’t deny how he makes her feel, and he has only gotten better--and perhaps even more experienced--with age. As Alexis toys with the idea of picking up where they left off, she must come to terms with the one thing holding her back--her husband.
Add in an unexpected house guest, the immature, lustful, yet sexy Hunter Bradford, matters quickly become more complex. 
Some yearnings are fleeting.
Others are an all-consuming fire.
Alexis is dangerously close to the flames, and it feels good.

Scarlette Rayne is my alter ego. I created the pseudonym for the purpose of writing. I am a new and upcoming author. My real name is Cathy. I sometimes go by Cat. I grew up in New York, but lived in Florida, Georgia and Colorado! I now reside somewhere in North Carolina. My fave authors are: Steig Larson, Jeff Lindsay, Ernest Hemingway, Nicholas Sparks and Stephen King. I read for the joy and fun it brings me. But I also read to inspire my own works. I am an equal opportunity genre reader—I read from all sorts from crime thrillers to erotica, paranormal to horror and I was a big reader many years ago of romance. I love horses, the fall season, the color black, coffee, wine and chocolate. I prefer rainy days to sunny ones. I prefer the mountains to the ocean, although I can appreciate what the beach on any given day. I am a wife, mother, an awesome friend, a cool sibling, business entrepreneur and an author!
