Heartbeat Girl by Michelle Gross


Title: Heartbeat Girl: A Vampire rock band romance
Author: Michelle Gross
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: December 5, 2021
Cover Design: LJ Anderson from Mayhem Cover Creations

Desperate times call for daring measures.

At least that’s what I tell myself for packing up and hitting the road with America’s newest and most popular rock band, The Oppressors. The lanky tattooed men are suspicious. Before I stepped on the bus with them, they’ve always made me nervous.

Something’s not adding up, though. There are strange events I’m noticing around them.

1. The hazy, vacant stare of the woman in their dressing room.

2. And the blood on her shirt.

3. The beat less sound of Liam’s heart when I lay my head on his chest.

I don’t think it’s safe to be close with the band, and most certainly not fall in love with one. So why do they make me feel like I’m a part of them? Their close-knitted trio.

What happens when I figure out what I’m dying to know?

This is a dual POV steamy vampire romance standalone that centers around bonds of love and friendship. 18+ dark, explicit sexual scenes, and lots of blood.


His jaw tightened. “You’ve been distant with me from the very beginning.”

“Hello. You’re not special. I’m distant with everyone. Do you see any friends around me, Liam? Do you see me call family or anyone besides those I’m supposed to?”

His eyes darkened. “I’m not special?”

Like the glassy expression in his azure gaze, his voice dripped with something sinister. I made a mistake. When he wedged his knee between my thighs, I knew he had a point to make. That he differed from everyone else.

“What are you doing?” I gasped as his leg rose further, forcing the tight skirt I wore to glide up. A fluttery feeling settled in my stomach. But there was also an urgent throb in my clit, especially when his thigh pressed against it. Oh, God. My face was so hot. My body was even hotter. What was happening?

He leaned down and whispered in my ear, “You think you can hide that from me?”

My ear and neck tingled. I didn’t know what that was until he moved his leg against me.

“That’s inappropriate,” I whispered.

He leaned his weight into me, so I felt his erection. “Does it feel like I want to be appropriate with you, Jayne?”

Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where possums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.

As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.

The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.

The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.

Occasionally Yours by Hayley Faiman


Title: Occasionally Yours
Series: Astor Family Series #4
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Second Chance Romance (Standalone)
Release Date: November 19, 2021

He’s keeping a secret from his entire family. She’s keeping a secret from him. Their relationship has been occasional for the past five years… can there ever be more?

Lawrence Astor is stoic. He’s the level-headed one of his two siblings. Never one to overreact or cause a scene. Except, he’s keeping a massive secret from his entire family, and he has been for over five years.

He’s had enough of hiding, of his life being in limbo. Everyone in his family is finally finding their place and happiness, except him. They’re starting families and building their lives. Lawrence is still only seeing his own wife on occasion.

She has been keeping a secret, sneaking away from her home one weekend every three months to spend a total of forty-eight hours with her husband.

Rory Astor is living on borrowed time. She stays away from her own husband in an effort to save him.

Can they salvage their relationship and live happily ever after, or are they doomed to be separated forever?


As an only child, Hayley Faiman had to entertain herself somehow. She started writing stories at the age of six and never really stopped.

Born in California, she met her now husband at the age of sixteen and married him at the age of twenty in 2004. After all of these years together, he’s still the love of her life.

Hayley’s husband joined the military and they lived in  Oregon, where he was stationed with the US Coast Guard. They moved back to California in 2006, where they had two little boys. Recently, the four of them moved out to the Hill Country of Texas, where they adopted a new family member, a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.

Most of Hayley’s days are spent taking care of her two boys, going to the baseball fields for practice, or helping them with homework. Her evenings are spent with her husband and her nights—those are spent creating alpha book boyfriends.
