#BookTour #BookSpotlight All Dirty Secrets by Marian Lanouette

All the Dirty Secrets
A Jake Carrington Thriller #4
by Marian Lanouette
Genre: Mystery, Thriller
Pub Date: 5/14/19
It’s a shocking blast from the past when homicide detective Jake
Carrington finds himself investigating the last woman he’d suspect
of murder . . .
Recovering from a stab wound to the gut, and dealing with the news that his
sister’s killer might beat the system, Lieutenant Jake Carrington
needs some downtime. But that’s cut short by a very sensitive case:
the murder of the police commissioner’s wife. The crime scene—a
dive hotel, complete with provocative, incriminating photos—suggests
the victim was having an affair. But Jake finds that hard to
believe—as hard to believe as the #1 suspect . . .
Jake hasn’t seen his high school sweetheart, Melinda Mastrianni, since
the day his sister, Eva, died. He’d turned down Eva’s request for
a ride so he could go see Melinda, and the guilt has never left him.
Now Melinda’s a local photographer, mostly shooting weddings and
graduations. Definitely not the kind of pics that led him to her
doorstep. But when Melinda disappears, and more prominent women turn
up dead, Jake will have to navigate through a twisted blackmailing
scheme to find out if the girl he once knew is long gone—or if
she’s a killer’s next target . . .
Tense and authentic—a suspenseful page-turner!” –Leo J. Maloney on All
the Pretty Brides
All the Pretty Brides
A Jake Carrington Thriller #3
Homicide detective Jake Carrington has an engagement that can’t wait
—with a killer.
Haunted by the murder of his sister, Lieutenant Jake Carrington struggles to
control his personal demons as he stands over the brutalized body of
a young woman found dead on the railroad tracks. The victim
disappeared on July 6th, the fifth woman in as many years to go
missing on that date. The fifth happy bride-to-be. The only one whose
body has turned up.
Soon the killer is sending personal messages to Jake. They refer to an
unidentified brother he believes Jake hates as much as he does. With
his partner distracted by turmoil at home, Jake is on his own. Drawn
deeper and deeper into a murderous family feud, his mission is to
find out who the killer’s brother is—and stop him before another
innocent woman’s life is cut tragically short.
Tense and authentic—a suspenseful page-turner!”
Leo J. Maloney
All the Hidden Sins
A Jake Carrington Thriller #2
When it comes to crime, homicide detective Jake Carrington plays for high stakes . . .
Assigned a missing persons case, Lieutenant Jake Carrington investigates a local Mob
boss. The trail goes cold, but the Mafioso isn’t taking any
chances, and soon the heat turns up from another quarter. Turns out
there’s more than one dangerous suspect . . .
Kyra Russell is drop-dead gorgeous and Jake is only human. But despite their mutual
attraction, Jake’s suspicion deepens when he learns about her
gambling problem—an addiction that cost her both husband and son.
Even more disturbing is Kyra’s day job. She runs a crematorium—and
it’s tied to the Mob. Now Jake will have to navigate a firestorm of
treachery to get to the truth . . .
All the Deadly Lies
A Jake Carrington Thriller #1
Homicide detective Jake Carrington takes murder personally…
The victim was bludgeoned, stripped, and left for dead. Shanna Wagner
deserves justice—and there’s no better cop than Lieutenant Jake
Carrington to find her killer. The brutality of the crime reminds
Jake of his sister’s murder seventeen years ago, and the
remorseless man responsible, now up for parole.
Then another woman is killed—and Jake goes dangerously close to the
edge. He’ll have to face his personal demons and focus his
formidable skills if he hopes to stop a vicious murderer from
striking again—and hold on to his career, and his life . . .
A self-described tough blonde from Brooklyn, Marian Lanouette
grew up as one of 10 children. As far back as she can remember,
Marian loved to read. She was especially intrigued by the
Daily
News
crime reports. Tragically, someone she knew was murdered.
The killer was never found. Her Jake Carrington thrillers are
informed by her admiration for police work, her experience in running
a crematorium, and her desire to write books where good prevails,
even in the darkest times. Marian lives in New England with her husband.

#BookTour #BookSpotlight The Game Plan Series by Breanna Hayse

The Game Plan
The Game Plan Series Book 1
by Breanna Hayse
Genre: Contemporary Romance
The book that began the Contemporary Age-Play Phenomenon is Back and it’s
BIGGER AND BETTER than EVER!
#1 Multi-Genre Best Selling Author Breanna Hayse brings you The Game Plan:
A story of love, hope, healing and discipline under the power of an
age-play relationship.
***
After being abandoned by her father, twenty-year old Cassandra Johnson
fought against being loved by anyone. Even after her mother married
ex-Dolphins Quarterback Big Bill Johnson, she resisted every attempt
to become part of her new family. Her resistance includes any
interaction with the older Johnson boys who seem to enjoy nothing
more than bossing her around. After the sudden passing of her mother,
Cassie grows tired of living under the thumb of her dominating family
and decides to press for independence. She starts by asserting her
obstinate and willful disposition and defying all rules laid out for her.
When Bill goes to Japan for three months on business, he leaves Rob, the
oldest of his sons, in charge. After the deliberate breaking of
several house rules and multiple temper tantrums, Rob decides that a
change to the “Game Plan” is necessary to bring Cassie
under control to prevent her from hurting herself. The first thing on
his list is taking the brat for a well-deserved trip over his knee
for a bare bottom spanking!
Over the years, Rob had watched Cassie grow from an awkward little girl to
a beautiful young woman. He struggles with his feelings when his
interest in Cassie goes far beyond just curbing her naughty behavior.
Her dream of having a life free from control is soon shattered when
Bryon, the second oldest of the Johnson boys, adds some firm-handed
discipline of his own.
The stubborn young woman soon finds herself facing more than just an
old-fashioned, over the knee, bare-bottom spanking. She quickly
learns that the Age-play lifestyle can lead to the healing of a
long-broken and hardened heart. Even though she immerses herself in
the joyful role of being Rob and Bryon’s Little girl, she wonders
if she is truly wired for the type of relationship that they offer
her. She also questions her ability to accept being Rob’s ‘big
girl’ and give him what he longs for by becoming a true submissive.
**Only .99 cents!!**
Time Out
The Game Plan Series Book 2
The sequel to the original contemporary Age-Play book, the Game Plan, is
here and bring you more fun and antics of the Johnson family as they
grow together in Age-play and BDSM relationships.
You’ll meet Krissy, Bryon’s sweet little girl, as she is introduced to the
concept of age play and discovers herself in the process. Suzanne and
Glenn are back, and Suzanne explores her own femininity and puts
pride aside to face her fears and needs as a Domme. Of course, we
can’t forget Rob and Cassie as they grow and indulge in their own
D&S lifestyle. Worlds collide as Cassie and Krissy fight over
Daddy Bryon, Bryon and Glenn fight over Suzanne, and Rob seems to be
the only voice of reason that is heard. And that’s just the beginning…
Publishers Note: the Age-Play Dynamic of the BDSM lifestyle is the most trusting
and intimate of all. It values innocence, trust and nurturing of
consenting adults. If you enjoy this genre, please check out many
more of my AP stories, including a nonfiction piece (The General’s
Little Angel) which shares how I was introduced to the dynamic.

The Game Plan Series Book 3
The #1 Best Selling Age-Play Author who launched the world-wide
contemporary Age-Play Phenomenon with The Game Plan and Time Out, brings you
THE END ZONE
***
Life was like a Chocolate Mousse Parfait for Cassie Johnson—especially
since entering the BDSM lifestyle with the two alpha male brothers,
Rob and Bryan. Her Dom and her Daddy Dom give her everything her
Little heart desires—love, attention, pleasure, guidance and even
discipline. They both belong to her, in and out of the bedroom, and
her life finally feels stable, satisfying and secure. But then her
happiness takes a turn when Daddy Bryon announces the probability
that he will make his relationship with his girlfriend, Krissy, a
permanent one. Throwing salt on her wounds, Cassie learns that both
her Doms are interest in sharing her wonderful world with Krissy!
The Little Green Monster is let loose as the young woman faces the pain
of being pushed aside and replaced. Devastated when her Little mode
is carelessly ordered to ‘grow up,’ she decides to end BDSM,
Age-Play and her engagement to Rob. Nothing, or no one, will change
her mind.
Except for Dorian Graye, the Whip Master and the ‘king’ of the BDSM community.
Distraught by Cassie’s withdrawal, Rob and Bryon decide to take her to meet
their mentor. Cassie can’t resist either Dorian’s charm or his
raw ability to read into her needs, and instantly sinks into her
Little place. The powerful Dom and his beautiful wife, Meredith, take
her under their wing to teach her how to release her fears and open
herself to play, passion, and freedom.
Self-doubt disappears in the presence of her new aunt and uncle. Cassie
discovers the love of a BDSM family, all of which are equally happy
to put her across the knee for a humiliating, bare bottom spanking as
they are to spoil her with stuffies and ice-cream sundaes. The more
she releases her Little to them, the greater the joy and freedom she receives.
She has only one concern, and that is if the magic spell of Graye Manor
will disappear after they return home. There she must face the
likelihood that both her Little space and her men will be shared with
the other Little girl. Is her Little ready for such a Big step?

The Game Plan Series Book 4
Breanna Hayse, the #1 Multi-Genre Best-Selling author and founder of the
contemporary Age-Play Phenomena, brings you BOOK 4 of the beloved
Game Plan Series! TOUCHDOWN
****
Following the unannounced departure as the two older Johnson boys take their
shared sub on vacation during Spring Break (End Zone, Book 3),
Kristina Barker is left feeling abandoned, disposable and hurt. A
vague text message from her boyfriend/Dom, Bryon, makes her question
the reality of everything she had grown to love—including him.
Being home alone while the other three explore the pleasures offered at
Graye Manor wasn’t what she signed up for when she agreed to become
part of the BDSM household. Heartbroken and discouraged, she turns to
Domme Suzanne Bichat and discovers that her age-play aunt is also
struggling with her relationship with Glenn, the youngest of the
Johnson boys.
Both women decide that a change is in order, starting with a no limit/no
restriction evening of action and adventure at a local bar—and no
boyfriends or alpha males are around to stop them! However, too many
drinks and a bout with a stripper-pole results in Suzanne’s
ex-husband being summoned to drag the inebriated Domme from the club
with little Krissy in tow. Sir Douglas Bichat, a handsome Brit and an
honored dominant of The Gentlemen’s Club (TGC), employs his special
skills as a loving, but firm, Daddy Dom and brings a sense of
security and value to the two hurt girls.
Even while trapped in an unspoken love triangle with his ex-wife, and
tormented by his own desire for her, Doug hold true to TGC’s Code
of Conduct and places Suzanne’s needs above his own. With Krissy’s
help, he finds a way to draw Glenn into the mix and ensure Suzanne’s
happiness.
Little does he know that a void in his heart would soon be filled as the
four of them grow into a family based on old-fashioned values and
loving discipline. With Krissy as a niece, Glenn as his mentee, and,
surprisingly, Suzanne as a Middle, Doug’s hands are happily filled
with teddy bears, model ships, ice-cream cones, sand castles, and an
occasional paddle to be applied to a cheeky bottom.
The week of Spring Break transforms each of them as the past is revealed,
the future is uncertain, and the present exposes lust, temptation,
unbridled sexual delights, and regrets. With the support of her new
‘parents’ and ‘brother,’ Krissy prepares for Bryon’s return
home where he will be confronted with the truth and a decision that
could permanently shatter the foundation of love and trust.
YES! There is more!
Be watching for Rob and Cassie’s wedding at Graye Manor, a shocking
surprise, and the reunion of two amazing Doms in Book 5- Unnecessary

***
Krissy’s mind is spinning happily with all the changes in her life. Her family
is growing, she’s engaged to Bryon, and everyone is content… until
a visit to The Playground threatens to shatter the hearts of the
family’s Littles and enrage the Bigs.
In comes Dorian Graye to the rescue! He and the guys set out to make
some permanent changes using the ‘Graye Way’ while his wife remains
back at the house loving on the girls and teaching them every bad
habit she can think of!
Well, we know what the boys will think of that, don’t we?
Amidst all the confusion and chaos, the Grayes discover that Krissy and
Bryon have not had any ‘alone’ time and, within an hour, the couple
is in the company ‘copter with some very explicit orders of how to
spend their mini vacation.
Meanwhile, back at the house, things are chaotic as always. Little do any of
them know, but there’s something stirring in the pot that’s going to
knock all of them to the sidelines!
Note:
This book is a stand-alone; however, why eat the sprinkles when you
can have the whole cake?
BDSM/AP lifestyler Breanna Hayse strives to give her readers truth and
reality of the BDSM/Age-Play/Total Power and Erotic Exchange lifestyle.
Who am I?
I’m a native Californian gone ‘wild’, and had the opportunity to travel
the globe and discover the world through the eyes of both a Marine
Intelligence specialist and a BDSM lifestyler. I left the service to
go into hospice nursing and grief counseling, eventually working as a
marriage and family therapist for those involved in alternative
lifestyle development. This experience has allowed me to gain unique
inspiration for my books and offer realistic plots and relatable characters.
In 2004, my husband, John, and I joined forces to work with both
submissives and dominants- teaching, training, listening and loving.
Our goal was to take the mystery and fear out of the lifestyle and
mentor people in safe, consensual and healthy relationships.
My first book, The Game Plan, was published in 2012 and opened the door
to the now-booming world of Age-Play literature. Since that time,
I’ve devoted my ‘spare’ time to writing, researching, community
involvement, and private and group pro bono counseling in deviant
behavior, alternative lifestyle, and addiction recovery.
I was formally ‘dungeon trained’ as a Domme before discovering my
submissive side when I joined the service. My scenarios are pulled
primarily from either personal experience or observation, including
spending time in BDSM clubs as the safety/medical officer. My
multi-faceted background allows me to glean from many avenues and
give a unique and intelligent literary experience through elements of
fantasy and fiction. I also discuss the questions and psychology of
the lifestyle in a manner that is fun and informative, and based on
‘the real deal.’
I live with my husband, musician, and fellow-author, John Hayse, and
two border collies in southern California. We practice a 24/7 D&S
relationship with speckles of AP (and many trips to Build-A-Bear),
and happily spend every moment together that we can. My hobbies
include my puppies, hiding my vanilla salt-water taffy where John
can’t find it, exotic art, collecting inspirational trinkets, and
developing my own paddle line. You can also see me as a featured
author/instructor in professional conference settings and as a
Sexpert for kinkyliterature.com.
