Join Prism Book Alliance® as Megan Derr goes Outside the Margins today.
I am low on brain power lately because of house buying. It started out well, but all the finishing stuff is driving me to drink (more than usual). The end of this is going to be interesting. So writing an intelligent, thought-provoking post is even more beyond me than usual. But I didn’t to skip two months in a row so I thought I would share some of the books I’ve enjoyed lately. I am an author and publisher, but also always and forever a reader, and I like sharing the books I’ve enjoyed, both those we publish at LT3 and those published elsewhere. This is an LT3 book so of course I’m biased, but it’s a book I keep on my kindle because I love rereading it. The MC and the way he’s treatedisgutwrenching, and the romance is a pretty, slow-burn kind that is my favorite. This is also a good one for peeps not big onfantasy, since it could read much likean historical. I haven’t read much lesbian stuffs yet but I am slowly building my collection :3 I really really liked this one. The princess (who has my roommates name, which is always weird) is sweet and I felt so bad for her at points since she’s treated as stupid by her father. Cute, sweet, fun read, I’m excited the author’s written a second one about another princess (and a racecar driver!). I recently read the whole Delarosa Secrets trilogy and loved it loved it, especially the third book. T.A. Chase always spins engaging tales (and she’s one of my fav peeps). These books are well done, love the characters, and I’m always a sucker for a criminal who is not as evil as he seems. This was a really sweet story I stumbled across the other day. Two online friends who meet, each expecting the other to be a woman, one gay, one who has always thought himself straight. It’s a really pretty, cute story, I like the way the one char realizes/accepts he’s bi, that was very well done. And that is all I have for now ^__^ I hope everyone is having a good week and has a lovely weekend.

Kipling doesn’t regret murdering his Alpha. Anything is better than continuing to live as a roughskin, subjected to brutal pit fights and abuse day after day. But constantly running for his life, always looking over his shoulder, and having nowhere to call home isn’t much better.
When he finds an abandoned cabin in the mountains, it seems the ideal place to hide until his pack gives up the search. All he needs is supplies, and a quick trip into town should take care of that. Instead of supplies, however, he encounters Tori, who seems like everything Kipling has ever wanted—and far too good to be true.
And if Tori’s not a trap then he, and his beautiful dragons, are just one more obstacle to be taken down by Kipling’s pack.
“So which one are you after?”
Kipling jerked, snarled, ripping his hands from his pockets as he turned and bringing them up—and realized it was just a regular person trying to chat like normal people did. He forced his hands to uncurl but kept them at his sides.
If the man noticed his strange behavior, he gave no sign of it. Kipling tried not to stare, but it was hard because the man practically begged to be stared at, he was so beautiful; jeez. He had never seen someone that hot. The man was big, but still on the lanky side, with lightly-tanned, white skin, dark brown hair in a short, fancy sort of cut that reminded Kipling of all the assholes who came to the pits to bet on the fights. He wore a suit like they did, too, which made Kipling nervous. Suits were always trouble.
His eyes were warm, though, not cold and mean. They were the color of rust, which was odd, but not the strangest Kipling had ever seen. The barest smattering of pale freckles dusted across his nose and the tops of his cheeks, which struck Kipling as… cute, which was not a word he had ever associated with someone who had such an Alpha presence. The man radiated that commanding energy, stronger than any Alpha or Candidate Kipling had met. “Sorry, what?”
The man smiled and nodded to the display. “You were studying the mp3 players pretty hard. Did one in particular catch your eye?”
Kipling shook his head. “No, I just like music. I’m not buying, just looking. I wouldn’t know where to start.”
“Looking isn’t nearly as much fun as touching,” the man replied, giving Kipling a slow perusal. Normally those kinds of looks made him want a really hot shower and an especially abrasive scrub brush. Alphas only ever looked at him like that when they were gauging how long he might last in the pit, how much money to spend, and if he was worth a post-fight fuck. Not that Kipling had ever agreed to that. He might be a roughskin, but he wasn’t anyone’s fuck toy. He and Peyton had taken a lot of abuse, as all of the roughskins had, but being whored out had been one step too far. If only the other roughskins had stood with them, he might still be in Blue and the pack might be working toward becoming a true pack instead of a miserable pile of abuse and greed and cowardice.
The man met his eyes again, and Kipling blurted, “Are you a trap?”
Surprise and confusion flickered across the man’s face. “What?”
“Nothing. Sorry.” Kipling bolted past him, head down, arms at his sides, and hurried toward the grocery store.
