Leather & Lace: Trident Security Book 1

Kristen Anders is starting her life over again after divorcing her cheating husband. An author of several ‘vanilla’ romance novels, she spiced up her latest one involving BDSM and it became a best-seller. Now she’s researching the subject for her follow-up book and manages to get a tour of the elite, private sex club, The Covenant, and runs into the one person she never expected to see there.

Devon “Devil Dog” Sawyer is intrigued by a cute brunette he meets at a friend’s Irish pub and does something he hasn’t done in over twelve years. He asks her out on a date. While it might seem strange to most, Devon’s only relationships since he was twenty-four have started and ended in the same place–a BDSM club.

What was supposed to be a single weekend of mutual pleasure and dirty sex, turns into something more. But while they fight their growing connection, a killer has Devon in his sights and Kristen may end up as collateral damage. Will they survive with their lives and hearts intact?

Starting as a submissive, he eventually became a Dom, but a brutal incident, years ago, changed Jake’s life forever.

Navy SEAL, Nick Sawyer, knew it was probably a bad idea to get involved with his brothers’ friend and employee, but there was something about Jake that drew him in. While his brothers also owned a private BDSM club, The Covenant, Nick never understood what attracted people to the lifestyle. He had nothing against it, but it just wasn’t for him. Until Jake.

An old missing person’s case has Jake running to rescue a teenage girl and Nick volunteers to watch his back. But when things go awry, Jake must confront his past, before he can ever think about a future…one that, hopefully, includes Nick.

SAVIOR, by Nicole Blanchard: Release Blitz, Special Offer & Giveaway!

Release Blitz Banner for Savior, by NIcole Blanchard


by Nicole Blanchard

First to Fight #4

Publication Date: October 17, 2016
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Military, Romance, Suspense


Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo

I thought I put my past behind me.

I lost everything when I testified against my boyfriend for the murders of five women. After the jury delivered a life sentence, I ran. I hoped if I could disappear, maybe the horror he caused would, too.

When I return to Florida for the first time after his conviction, I’m determined to face my fears and get my life back. Then, a woman is murdered and I’m the only one who believes her death features the same signature as those I’m trying so hard to forget.

Instinct tells me to run again, but local cop Logan Blackwell has never let a suspect–or a woman–get away. He’s made it his own personal mission to solve the case and he needs my help to do it.

I have no choice once we learn I’m the next target, but I’m not interested in getting close to another man, especially not a sexy former Marine who has secrets of his own.



FREE for a limited time: Amazon

I’ll do anything to save her.

A woman I’ve never met, whose name I don’t even know, gambled her own life to protect my child. In return, she was taken by a mad man.

I’ll put my career, my security, and my life on the line to get her back, even if it means facing the truth about my own mistakes.

The only thing she can’t trust me with…is her heart.

I thought it was just one night with my brother’s best friend.

The boy I had dreamt about since he gave me my first kiss, under the lights of the Ferris wheel.

I knew he was about to leave for a year – no chance for a future.

But our one night together would create memories for a lifetime.

Our paths crossed again, but I had lied, and he was no longer the man he once was. He was warring against demons. Against the silence that was threatening to swallow him. And I had kept a secret from him, one he would never forgive me for.

But my secret was about to be ripped open. Displayed for the world on national news. And I had only one way to repair the damage.

I had to trust the man I lied to.

The man I never got the chance to make a life with.

The only man who could save what we had created together.



Now Available: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks | Add to Goodreads 

I knew falling in love with him was bad for us both, but I did it anyway.

For a brief moment, we had it all. Even though he was leaving to join the Marines and I had four years of college ahead of me, he was everything I ever wanted, but didn’t think I deserved.

But real life has a way of dashing dreams—and that happy future we envisioned together? It disappeared at the hands of a monster.

Ten years have passed, and I’m not the same naïve girl who believed in happily-ever-afters. When my mother passes away and I find myself caring for my two teenage brothers, the last thing on my mind should be reconnecting with the hottie-turned-hero who I loved at seventeen.

If I want a second chance at his heart, I’ll have to trust him with the secrets that tore us apart.


Please note there is a graphic scene that may be a trigger for some.

The Gentleman’s Lady

Book Cover, The Gentleman's Lady, by S. H. PrattKatherine Delaford had had enough.

She’d had enough lies; enough cheating; enough abuse and she was finished with men. When her second marriage ended with an extended stay in the hospital after nearly dying at the hands of her ex-husband, she swore off men and vowed never to trust another one with her shattered heart. Using her anger and mistrust as her most powerful weapons, Kat succeeds in keeping her vow… until Paul Morgan, with his quiet temerity and gentle gallantry, turned her life completely upside down.

Paul Morgan was no stranger to trouble and had been dealt his share of misery and then some. Life had taught him that people were not to be trusted and that he could only count on himself. So in an effort to avoid more misery, he withdrew into himself, keeping people at arm’s length… until he met Kat Delaford. Paul could no more explain why he was drawn so inexorably to the angry and hostile woman than he could have changed the past that haunted him. He was simply unable to resist the urge to be with Kat.

Drawn toward the light of friendship and sincere kindness, Kat found herself letting go of her anger and allowing Paul to lead her into the warmth that he offered. When Paul saves Kat from her abusive ex-husband, she comes to understand that Paul’s past looms heavy over him and Paul, when faced with dealing with his past or losing Kat, struggles to accept the help and support that she offers. Can they overcome their respective pasts and reach for the love that is offered, or will the past destroy their love before the gentleman can be with his lady?

Shy of Tomorrow

Book Cover, Shy of Tomorrow, by S. H. PrattCircumspect… Reserved… Shy…

To call Kylee Anne Davidovich any of those would be an understatement. Bookish and quiet, the librarian was content to remain that way. Bullied and tormented by vain and jealous sisters; misused and abused by the opposite sex, Kylee had found a warm haven in her job and her books. Supported by her best friend, Marin, and surrounded by the books she loved, Kylee didn’t need more… Until Mr. Hunk.

Jeremy Campbell knew the devious side to women, knew how they hunted and trapped the men they preyed on. Hiding scars from the woman who still haunted him, the semi-retired computer analyst, studiously avoided serious relationships and the most dangerous trap of all… love.

From the moment Jeremy saw Kylee working at the Timberland library, he knew she was different. Roaming the shelves of romance books where he could watch the beautiful librarian, Jeremy tried to find a way into Kylee’s world. Unsure of Jeremy’s intentions and unwilling to allow herself to be used again, Kylee struggled against her desire to believe that he was really interested in her. After learning the true depth of her sisters’ pettiness, Kylee takes a chance with Jeremy, but in a moment of unguarded honesty, her faith in him is pushed to the breaking point.

Heartsick and broken, Kylee works to overcome her shattered dreams with Marin faithfully at her side. Horrified and tormented by his past, Jeremy breaks the one promise that he swore to Kylee. Can Jeremy put his ghosts to rest before he loses Kylee forever or will he always be one moment shy of tomorrow?

Shy of Tomorrow is a standalone novel & #1 the Campbell Family series.

Reader Reviews…

“This book had me sucked in from the first page and I felt like I had to hold my breath until the very end!”

“Sigh. What a beautiful story. This is a story about a very shy librarian who doesn’t realize how beautiful or special she truly is until she meets a handsome, charismatic man who shows her how true love can transform her into the butterfly. Get ready to meet your next book boyfriend and thank me later.”

An Interview with S. H. Pratt

I know it’s like asking which one of your kids you love the most — but I have to ask. Is there ONE male and/or female character that holds a special place in your heart, and if so, why?
Spencer St. George (The Artist’s Touch Epic) is my favorite male character. He’s cautious yet bold. He’s unafraid to be himself but unwilling to share himself until he’s completely sure of the other person’s intentions. He’s sweet and sensitive but has a fair few flaws. I will say of my WIP, Kameron Campbell (brother of Jeremy in Shy of Tomorrow) runs a close second.
Of my female characters, I love Fiona Harper (Crazy Mountain Series) because she is so beautifully broken and intensely strong yet capable of admitting her weaknesses and mistakes.
Let’s chat about any (or all!) of your upcoming releases (or works-in-progress). Will there be a Pictures of Love book to complete Adam’s story?
Yes, there will be two more Picture of Love Series books. The Art of Forgiving is being written right now along with it’s twin book, This Crazy Life, the third and final Crazy Mountain Series book. It takes a lot longer to write these books because they take place concurrently and I have to be careful with the interweaving of storylines. I also have Kameron Campbell’s story in the works, which will be the second of three Campbell Family stories that will be standalones in their own right but all connected by the triplets. And I’m working on a novella collection with a talented group that is set in my fictional town of Peace, Montana. But these are just a few of my 14+ WIPs. 
Who are some of your favorite authors? Is there ONE book or series that you’d gladly read over and over again?
In my own genre, I love to read Alice Clayton, Jamie McGuire, Kallypso Masters, and Sylvain Reynard to name a few. And I’m more of a highlight reader after I’ve enjoyed a book in its entirety. I enjoy rereading my favorite scenes rather than the whole book.
Name three items on your bucket list, including one place you’d love to visit.
Oh boy…
Well, the place I’d most love to visit is Ireland, and I certainly wouldn’t complain about seeing Scotland and the rest of Europe. LOL
I’d love to make one of “the lists”. You know, New York Times Bestseller or USA Today Bestseller.
And I’d love to meet Julie Andrews and/or Carol Burnett. (I say and/or because they are great friends and it would be awesome to meet them both at the same time.)
What’s the best piece of writing advice you’ve ever received? How has it impacted your work?
I met Jamie McGuire when she was at the University of Washington for a book signing. She said that editing was the key. Her words were to edit until you were cross-eyed and ready to destroy the manuscript then edit some more. Every time I finish a manuscript, her words began repeating in my head. As human as I am, I try with everything I have to give my readers a well edited book every time.

ICYMI – More About S. H. Pratt

Goodreads logo for S. H. Pratt, AuthorA native Montanan, currently living in Olympia, Washington, I am the mom of three profoundly gifted children who take my lack of sanity as a challenge to make me sane.

I began writing in high school. I stopped writing to pursue my education but quickly realized I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up… I still don’t know. So I decided to find a “real job”. Over the course of the next twenty years, I tried everything from barista, to a restaurant manager, to a purchasing agent and an administrative assistant to the owner of a fire truck construction company and everything in between.

I returned to writing in 2012. By the time I worked up the nerve to attempt self-publishing, I’d amassed a stack of rejection letters and seven complete manuscripts. The first three books that I wrote after ‘growing up’ a bit were published in paperback only and only to those who special ordered it. It will never be printed or released again due to the nature of my mental state when I wrote it. I was in a very bad place, emotionally, and those three books were my therapeutic catharsis. The first book I wrote and subsequently published was Always My Love and it was more of a homecoming, the characters involved, a withdrawn and wary writer (see what I did there?) goes back to her version of “home” which is her best friend/cousin. I wrote the cousin based on my own best friend/cousin and from there I wrote of new beginnings with the cousin’s friend who gives the author a reason to see “home” differently. It was another way to heal emotionally.

I prefer to write contemporary romance with a heavy emphasis on psychology and the emotions of my characters. I feel that if my reader can feel what the character feels and can identify with it, I’ve done my job. After Always My Love, the books that I’ve written have been a different sort of therapy. They touch on issues such as: spousal abuse, cheating, date rape, PTSD and a myriad of other hot button topics that I’ve seen first-hand in my life via my siblings and other experiences. I love to do the research involved with deep psychological issues and creating the character that everyone loves to hate. The stand alone book I love the most is Shy of Tomorrow. It just touches a place in my heart where books live as it’s about a librarian who finds more than she bargains for in the aisles of the library. One other thing that I simply love to write about is multiples. So far, five of my eleven books have either twins or triplets, with six more WIPs actively being worked on with twins or triplets. As for a muse… life inspires me.
