Cry Mercy, Blood Legion MC #1 - Release Tour with Giveaway


Title: Cry Mercy
Series: Blood Legion MC Book 1
Author: Rie Warren
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: May 20, 2019





Synopsis



Gritty star-crossed lovers? You have no idea . . . 


ANGEL

I thought I knew bad times. The worst times. My dad murdered, the MC that’s rightfully mine ripped apart by corrupt rule. I didn’t know anything about true horror until I met a Tennessean girl named Mercy. 
Angel and Mercy, frigging ironic, right? You don’t know the half of it. Blood Legion MC is my legacy, and revenge against me is Mercy’s. If you’re looking for gritty star-crossed lovers in the Crescent City, you’ve found it. Because there’s a damn good chance one of us won’t make it out of here alive. 


MERCY

I’m at the mercy of my menfolk. Mercy . . . ironic, isn’t it? Because my cousin and my uncle show no mercy to me, despite my name. I’m used against my will. I’m beaten and worse when I don’t behave. I have no freedom, only one friend, and no chance of escape even though New Orleans is so vibrant I feel like I could touch the colors. 
I fled the compound for just one night. I shouldn’t have. I met a biker called Angel—Angel. He’s blond as a seraph, but big and tall and full of sweet talk I’ve never heard before. Except he’s my family’s enemy. 
Angel can’t be my only hope because my kin have vowed to take out him and the rest of the Blood Legion MC in one big Tenn-tucky blaze of glory.

Review by Barbara


What a Great start to an MC series. The author has given us a very well written, action packed, gritty story surrounding the cajun brotherhood who make up the Blood Legion MC from New Orleans. 
The characters are so well written that you can’t help but feel their emotions during the best of times and the absolute worst. These men have been through hell and back and have seen the worst of it or so they think. 

Mercy was raised in the Tenn Hills by her grandma. But when her grandma dies she is sent to live with her relatives where she is used and abused by her family. Mercy longs for just a little reprieve from their so called life. So she sneaks out and finds solace at a bar in New Orleans. Looking like a ragamuffin, she nurses the one beer she could afford, just enjoying the sounds and people living a normal life. Angel, the Prez of the Blood Legion MC, is enjoying a night in the club’s bar when he spots the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. He knows by looking at the state of her clothes and her mannerisms that she that’s she’s in trouble. They talk, the sparks fly, yet he knows nothing about her. She suddenly runs out of the bar saying she has to get back. To where, Angel has no clue. All he knows is her name is Mercy and their one kiss has rocked both their worlds.

From here the story really takes off. His need to find her and right her wrongs, her need to be near him yet stay away for his safety. This star crossed lovers story is a wild ride that you definitely don’t want to miss out on. But please note, this book is not for the faint of heart and may have triggers for some, but it’s superbly written so hopefully that shouldn’t be a problem. Kudos to the author for a job well done, and this reader is looking forward to book 2 of the Blood Legion MC Series. 2 Thumbs Up and 5 stars for an awesome read. 



Review by Kathy


Bon Dieu!!! This was one great story with such wonderful and colorful characters. I absolutely loved reading Angel and Mercy's story, no matter how rough it got and how much I wanted to light a fire under his butt to get him to go after her! My only little tiny problem with this book was some of the cajun french words did not make any sense to me...I'd never heard a few of these words ever spoken. But, let's get to the story of poor little Mercy and those lower than life, should all be gator food family of hers and how that poor girl ever lived though the things that those trash did to her. And Angel, her angel in leather who has never had time for a woman, other than for one thing. That is until he lays eyes on the petite blonde who is in the corner of his bar, trying to not attract attention! Nice try, but she definitely catches his attention, and that is all she wrote folks because he is smittened (even if he doesn't acknowledge it himself) .

I absolutely loved this book and I can hardly wait to read the next story! This should be good cher!!!






Excerpt



“Hey, Angel! You got a live one there?” A man with tons of chunky silver rings on his fingers yelled over to our quiet corner.

“Fuck. Off. Saint,” Angel replied, swiping him the middle finger without even looking.

“Saint?” I asked, lips curling together. “And Angel.”

Angel winked. “And don’t forget Mercy. Must be destined, oui?”
I smothered a smile, taking another long drink of my beer. “Well, I don’t think he’s a saint or you’re an angel. Not by the way those pretty ladies looked like they were competing for your company earlier.”
“You saw that?” Groaning, he rubbed a hand down his cheek. Then his face lit up from the inside. “So you were watching me just as much as I was watching you.”
I couldn’t help but laugh as he gloated.
Then I pressed my palm against his chest and lifted up to the toes of my boots to whisper against his jaw, “I was waiting to see if you’d get your eyes gouged out.”
He laughed loudly, tipping his head back so his gold curls shimmered.
I snickered, draining the rest of my beer.
“Buy you another?” His arm ringed around my waist.
And alarm bells went off.
I wrestled free, quickly checking the time on my watch.
Almost midnight.
“I have to go.” I slammed my bottle onto the nearest table.
“Didn’t mean to scare you off, Mercy.” Angel stepped in front of me as I waded to the door.
He held his hands raised in front of him.
I dodged around him, fleeing like I should have done an hour ago.
Running down the sidewalk, I tripped on the uneven pavement in my over-sized boots.
A strong arm banded around my waist, drawing me up and steadying me.
“Got you, beb.”
Puffs of breath pelted against my ear, and then Angel released me from his grasp.
He spun me gently around, his hair like a halo lit by the streetlight. “At least let me give you a ride. Where you headed?”
I shook my head. “I just need to go. Please.”
I got the feeling Angel L’Esperance didn’t chase just anyone. But I couldn’t let him get close to me. I didn’t want him knowing where I lived.
Shame and embarrassment bled into one big ball of regret.
His fingers came up to tenderly caress my cheek.
The first touch on my skin from a male that didn’t make me flinch or quake or want to crawl away in fear.
“Can I at least get a kiss?”
My heart leaped.
Angel didn’t pose a threat. How could he, with a name like that and sincerity shining in his clear blue eyes?
Even more, he’d easily tunneled beneath years of distrust and hurt . . . in mere minutes.
“Yes,” I whispered.
He closed his eyes. He hummed a deep rumbling sound. He bent his burnished head over mine, and seconds later the softest, most pleasurable sensation melted against my mouth. His tongue took a trip across the seam of my lips, sailing to a stop before he plucked my bottom lip between both of his.
When he drew back, I swore I could read dreams in his eyes.
It wasn’t a kiss. It was a promise. It tasted like hope.
Hope I couldn’t afford.
Oh lord.
“How about your number, Miss Mercy?”
Hope became cinders in my mouth. “I don’t think so.”
Threading his fingers through his hair, he tousled the strands even more. “At least let me put my number in your phone.”
“I don’t have a cell phone.” Another thing I wasn’t allowed.
He frowned heavily at me before grasping my hand and squeezing it. “Wait here.”
He raced back to the bar, and I knew I should leave while I could.
But my lips tingled. I pressed my fingers against my mouth, remembering the firm warm pressure.
I wasn’t going to make it back to the Lair in time.
Half a minute later, Angel ran back to me. His grin didn’t make it to his eyes that time. He stuffed a napkin in my pocket.
“My number. Call me.”
“Why?”
He laughed curtly. “Whaddya mean why? I wanna see you again, Mercy.” Gathering my hands in his, he asked, “You sure I can’t give you a ride?”
“I have to go. I have to go now.”
“Okay.” He released me. “Okay.”
I turned away from him, pulling the napkin out to crush it in my hand. To hold it in my hand.
Dashing away tears that came from the deep hidden well within, I sprinted. I looked back once, and Angel still watched. He watched until I was out of sight.
I tried to keep my bearings. I hoped I got home before my kinfolk. Because something bad would happen if they found me missing.

Release Blitz - Out of the Flames by Leah Sharelle



Title: Out of the Flames
Series: Firemen Do It Better 
Author: Leah Sharelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 20, 2019


There is nothing in the world that Lead Firefighter Dylan Grant loves more than his wife, Tate.


The second the tattooed mountain of a man laid eyes on her, she became his obsession, the very breath in his lungs, the beat of his heart.



When he isn’t fighting fires or hanging with his two best mates, he is with Tate.
There isn’t one single thing he wouldn’t do for her.

But there is one thing he can’t give her—a baby.

The alpha firefighter just won’t accept that. No way.

Tate leads a charmed life. She is married to a hunk who dotes on her every second of the day.

Her custom jewellery pieces are taking off, giving her a respected reputation and making her some good money. The only black cloud hovering over her happy life is the fact she can’t get pregnant.

Since the day she met Dylan, all she wanted was the perfect life with him. What if she can’t give Dylan what they both want. Will he look elsewhere? Will her failure ruin the best thing that has ever happened to her?

When tragedy strikes the cruellest blow, will Tate and Dylan find a way out of the flames to their happily ever after?




Review by Barbara


This Firefighters series just gets Hotter and Hotter and the emotions just keep hitting the heart stronger with each book released. The author has done an outstanding job of making the reader feel everything little nuance that the characters feel in this book: the love, the hurt, the devastation, the helplessness, the friendships and so much more. 

Dylan and Tate have been head over heels in love since the day they meet 10 years ago and after 5 years of marriage their love and devotion to each other is stronger than ever. The only thing lacking is a baby. Frustration sets in after a year of trying and still no child. But when tragedy strikes the author will take you on a very heartfelt emotional ride. One that Dylan and Tate’s magical love affair may not survive and one the reader will feel down to their toes. 

Simply put his is a Phenomenal read in one amazing heartfelt series. While the books can be read as stand-a-lones, I HIGHLY Recommend all the stories in the Firemen Do It Better series as the friendships overlap. Kudo’s Ms. Sharelle for a wonderful read and this reader can’t wait for your next release. 2 Thumbs Up and 5 Adoring Stars.

Into the Fire (Firefighters Do It Better)









Meet the Author


I love the idea of being in love. Since my early teens when I first discovered Silhouette Desire novels my life has been all about reading. I would find myself re-writing scenes if I wasn't happy with them and hiding them under my bed. That led me to writing love stories of my own. They all ended up under the bed and are still there, and there they will stay. I don't do angst, in fact it drives me crazy. 

I am a mum of three beautiful girls, Australian, and have what most say is a weird sense of humor.

I spend my free time doing movie, Sons of Anarchy, and Friends marathons. And reading.

I love Pina Colada's and getting caught in the rain..... there's that weird humor.
