Fifth Avenue Trilogy Blog Tour



Currently ranked as one of the world’s most expensive streets, Fifth Avenue is home to the city’s most prestigious shops and historical buildings. It’s also called home by three of New York City’s sexiest men. A brand-new trilogy from the world’s leading publisher of books for women, Harlequin Presents is excited to launch the Fifth Avenue Trilogy, stories of sex, scandal and the Upper East Side, beginning with:

·         Avenge Me by Maisey Yates (Harlequin Presents, June 2014, $9.99 U.S./$11.99 CAN)

·         Scandalize Me by Caitlin Crews (Harlequin Presents, July 2014, $9.99 U.S./$11.99 CAN)

·         Expose Me by Kate Hewitt (Harlequin Presents, August 2014, $9.99 U.S./$11.99 CAN)

Austin, Hunter and Alex were inseparable during their school days, but the sudden death of their good friend Sarah Michaels tore them apart. However, her death was not as it seemed. Under the many falsehoods lies a corruption so sordid that New York’s elite would never believe it.
 Now in positions of wealth and power, these men vow to use their influence to bring down the man responsible—Jason Treffen, an infamous philanthropic billionaire. With a plan in place, Austin, Hunter and Alex are ready for anything—until three very different women enter their lives, making them question their motives for revenge.

Here are excerpts from each of the three books:

Ten years ago, one devastating night changed everything for
Austin, Hunter and Alex. Now they must each play their part in
the revenge against the one man who ruined it all.

Excerpt from AVENGE ME
Katy let out a long breath and started walking back down the
empty corridor, back to the party.
Back toward Jason Treffen.
Talking to him had just about made her lose her mind. It had
taken everything in her not to grab his glass from his hand and
pour it over his head. Then break the glass on his face.
She considered the man as good as her sister’s murderer, so
she was short on charitable feelings where he was concerned.
The door to the ballroom opened, and she froze.
Oh. Her breath left her in a rush, a current of electricity washing
over her skin.
It was him.
The man whose eyes were like an endless black hole, drawing
her in, a force she couldn’t deny or control. When he had looked
at her, she’d felt as if she were grounded to the spot. She’d felt
like he had looked and seen her.
Seen everything. More than that, she’d looked back and she’d
seen him.
Had seen a grief in him. An anger.
It had been, in some ways, like looking into a mirror.
“It’s you,” he said, his voice deep, smooth. Like really good
chocolate. “I was hoping to run into you.”
“Wh-why were you hoping to run into me?” she asked.
“Because you’re the most beautiful woman here. Why wouldn’t
I want to see you?”
“You’re a flirt.”
“That’s the thing, I’m not really.” He put his hands in his pockets,
a wicked half smile curling that sinful mouth.
“I have to get back.”
She started to walk past him and he took her arm, stopped her
progress. She looked up and met cold, dark eyes.
“To who?” he asked, his voice gentle, an opposing force to the
hold he had on her.
There was something about that grip. Commanding. It spoke
to every secret fantasy that lived in the dark shadows inside her.
The parts of herself that had looked at every man she’d even tried
to date and found them lacking.
But not him. He wouldn’t be lacking. Something shivered inside
her, a whisper.
He would know what you wanted.

Excerpt from SCANDALIZE ME
Read Caitlin Crews’s glittering contribution to the
Fifth Avenue trilogy in:
* * *
It wasn’t the first time a man had propositioned her. But it was the
first time she’d felt a burst of flame lick over her when he did, and
she was terribly afraid he knew that, too. That he felt the same
slap of heat.
She couldn’t let that happen, it was impossible, so she shoved
it aside.
“Is that caveman code for ‘sleep with me so I can put you back
in your proper place’?” she asked, cool and challenging and back
on familiar ground, because she knew this routine. She could
handle this. Jason Treffen had taught her well, one painful lesson
at a time. “Because you should know before you try, dragging
me off by my hair somewhere won’t end the way you think it
will. I can promise you that.”
Hunter looked intrigued and his head canted slightly to one
side, but that wolfish regard of his never wavered—bright and
hot and knowing. Reaching much too far inside her.

“I don’t want to drag you off somewhere by your hair and have
my way with you, Ms. Brook.”
The smile on her lips turned mocking, but she was more concerned
with the sudden long, slow thump of her heart and the
heavy, wet heat low in her belly. “Because you’re not that kind
of guy?”
There was something more than predatory in his eyes then,
hard and hot, a dark knowing in the curve of his mouth that
connected with that deep drumroll inside her, making it her pulse,
her breath, her worst fear come true.
“I’m absolutely that kind of guy. But I told you. You have to
ask me nicely.”
He smiled, as if he was the one in control. And she couldn’t
allow it.
“No,” she said, furious that it came out like a whisper, thin and
uncertain. His smile deepened for a moment, like a promise.
“Your loss,” he murmured, and that aching fi re swelled inside
her, nearly bursting.
And then he laughed again, dismissing her, and turned to go.
Again. For good this time, she understood, and she couldn’t let
that happen.
Zoe had no choice.
“I wouldn’t do that, Mr. Grant.” She didn’t know why the
dryness in her mouth seemed to translate into something like
trembling everywhere else when she’d known before she’d
approached him that it would probably come to this. She made
herself smile. “I know about Sarah.”

Excerpt from EXPOSE ME
Read Kate Hewitt’s dazzling finale to the
Fifth Avenue trilogy in:
* * *
“You sound like you hate the man.”
Hate isn’t the right word. But I’d like to see what he does
with an interview. What you do with it.” He raised his beer bottle
to his lips, his eyes hard.
She straightened, flashed him one of her glittering smiles.
“Well, stay tuned, then. It airs live on March twentieth.” And
without waiting for a response, she turned and walked away from
him, her shoulders thrown back, her chin held high.
Alex watched her leave. For a moment there he’d considered
telling her the truth about Jason Treffen, but then he’d thankfully
thought better of it. It was hardly cocktail party chitchat, and
he didn’t know her well enough to trust her with that particular
powder keg. Not yet, anyway.
She was ambitious, he got that, and tough. He was pretty sure
she had the balls to bring down Treffen on live television if she
wanted to.
The question was, did she? Could he convince her? He possessed
a savage need to see Treffen with his world crumbling
around him while everyone else saw it, too. No longer would the
man fool everyone into believing he was such a damned saint.
They would know him not just as a sinner, but as a devil.
Austin had already exposed Treffen to his family with the help
of Sarah’s sister, Katy. Hunter was working on ousting Treffen
from his law fi rm. And Alex had been charged with showing
the world what he really was: a monster who used the women
he claimed to be saving. Who damned them to lives of shame,
scandal and sin. Everything in Alex ached to see Jason publicly
exposed—and he would do whatever it took to make it happen.
Including use Chelsea in whatever way he could. The woman
was cold. He didn’t feel so much as a fl icker of guilt for using
her. But he did feel a certain amount of frustration. Sexual frustration.
He wanted Chelsea Maxwell in bed, beneath him, those
gray-green eyes turned to molten-silver with desire. He wanted
her haughty little smile to become a desperate begging kiss, to
turn her tinkling laugh into a breathy sigh of pleasure and need.
He wanted to be the one to do it. To shatter her icy control and
make her melt. For him.
