A Fairbanks Affair; Odds Are Good #3 (Series)
by Katy Regnery (Author)

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

I love everything about Katy Regnery’s Odds Are Good series!! Once again I was brought into her world that I didn’t want to leave, I also fell in love people I connected with and want to revisit over and over again.

Trevor, aka Mr. Fairbanks, isn’t looking for love. He was burned in the worst possible way, not only by his ex, but also by his brother. Trevor places an ad in the Odds Are Good  magazine for a discreet, intimate weekend over New Years with zero chance for love, but what he finds is more than he ever bargained for.

Faye is a successful business woman who hasn’t had time for a personal life. Losing her parents while still in college and then taking over the care of her younger sister didn’t leave room to look for love. When she spots Mr. Fairbanks advertisement it intrigues her for many reasons. First, his use of vocabulary (because big words used correctly are ultra sexy). Second, he lives in a town where she has been interested in acquiring a new distillery, the trip to Alaska will ultimately kill two birds with one stone. Third and probably most important, she’s still a virgin and losing her v-card is starting to become a ticking timebomb. Being a thirty year old virgin is a strange oddity and losing this one dreaded thing to a stranger seems better than explaining it to the next man she actually wants to date. She’s been there, done that, and it never goes well.

All goes well with the plans in place for Mr. Fairbanks and “Faith” (Faye uses an alias too) and they plan to meet the weekend of New Years.  That is until Trevor and Faye meet in person the week prior and the two real people hit it off. As they get to know each other they begin to feel guilty that they have an upcoming tryst with a “stranger”. Do they keep their standing plans or keep getting to know the person in front of them? Neither planned on real feelings, but is it possible for plans to change?

Trevor and Faye and a wonderful couple together. Healing and growing in that beautiful way that Katy writes broken characters. The Fairbanks Affair is a perfect story for the holiday season.

Review – Humbugged by Pippa Grant and Lili Valente

Humbugged; Happy Cat #4 (Series)
by Pippa Grant & Lili Valente (Authors)

This review is from: November 30, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Welcome back to Happy Cat! I love this town where crazy is normal and everyone looks out for their fellow neighbor or fellow pets. In Humbugged Pippa and Lili bring the funny mixed with steamy romance and this time add in a lot of holiday flair to make the perfect Christmas story.

Noelle has decided to have a happy Christmas this year. Her life hasn’t exactly given her the best memories surrounding this particular holiday. So, this year she is forcing the happy no matter what goes wrong or what gorgeous marine keeps popping up and tempting her to keep her focus on her business and not on other distractions.

Clint O’Dell is home and he loves spending time with his family. For the past six years since he signed up with the marines he hasn’t had as many chances to spend long times with them, but his favorite part about being home is one sweet baker, Noelle.

As much as these two circle each other it isn’t long before their chemistry is just too combustible and they finally give in, but can it last? Clint is a marine and he doesn’t protect his country from his living room couch and Noelle’s is a small business owner with everything she owns invested in her bakery, so long term and long distance is that really sustainable?

I love Clint’s all American heroness and his ability to make fun of himself, but he’s also humble when he makes a mistake. He is just too delicious and my Christmas wish would be that we carbon copy him to put in everyone’s stocking.

Releasing December 10th

Humbugged is a laugh out loud holiday romp featuring a Marine with a heart of gold and a baker in need of a hero. Complete with the world’s most awkward Christmas caroling, a photoshoot with furry friends, and more naughty baked goods than is good or decent.

Holiday Ever After Anthology 
by Kimberly KincaidAmy Andrews, Kate Canterbary, J.H. Croix, Erika Kelly, Maria Luis, Natasha Madison, Erin Nicholas, Lucy Score, Lili ValenteWillow Winters (authors)

This review is from: November 27, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

The lineup is FANTASTIC!!! The stories are brilliant!! You may recognize the characters from previous books and fall in love with the all new stories written by these great authors OR may find an author you haven’t read before and begin making a new TBR wish list for Christmas and begin finding new worlds to fall in love with. Either way, this is the joy of reading anthologies, there is something for everyone and you seriously can’t go wrong with this lovely holiday treat.

In Holiday Ever After the stories are quick and fun and they all revolve around the holidays in some way or the other so you really can’t go wrong. You will be able to pick up a story in between running errands, wrapping presents, drinking cocoa, basically every holiday thing on your checklist. There is no need to feel stressful during the holiday season when you can add in a short romance break.

The lineup includes:

MILF on the Shelf by Lili Valente: Adorable, fake boyfriend love with Lili’s humor thrown in. Love in the big city and a strange Christmas toilet. Yes, I said toilet 🙂

Must Love Alligators by Erin Nicholas: The Boys of of the Bayou are back with a quick Christmas tale involving Chase and Bailey. Is Bailey back to talk about endangered animals, or catch a certain med student?

Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Red Bikini Trouble by Amy Andrews: A second chance love story in our favorite town of Credence, Co. that involves a bikini, a selfie stick, and lots of trouble.

Planes, Trains and Head Over Heels by Erika Kelly: Two opposites are forced to ride out a storm in the worst possible conditions, but end up finding more in common than they ever imagined.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside by Kimberly Kincaid: Back at Remington Medical where love is always in the air. Sophia has been trying to stay away from Dr. Malone, but it turns out Dr. Cocky may have the perfect remedy for what she’s been running from after all.

Due to time constraints and the upcoming holidays, I’ve only made it through half of the anthology, but here is a brief synopsis of the other stories within the anthology. Enjoy and happy holidays!

Mistletoe Kisser by Lucy Score: Two veterinarians and a chance at a second first kiss.

That Snowy Night by J.H. Croix: A second chance romance. I adore these stories and then mix in some holiday magic…well it is just perfect.

Professional Development by Kate Canterbury: Enemies to lovers romance and the holidays mixed togethers.

Tempt the Assistant by Natasha Madison: A company Christmas party and two co-workers who have feelings for one another.

Kissing the Gentleman by Maria Luis: Hilarious workplace romance.

All I Want is a Kiss by Willow Winters: Two business partners who have also had something on the side, but can this be the season to ask for something more?

It will only be available as a collection for a very limited time, so snatch it up while you can!

It may be getting colder outside, but you will not need a winter fire blazing to keep you warm while reading Blakely’s newest book!! Her newest addition to The Gift Series will warm you from the inside out. It is a sintilizing tale between two friends that you will not want to miss!!

Nina and Adam aren’t just neighbors, they are also friends. While Adam is having his place repainted he’s staying at Nina’s and accidently comes across her “wish list” which is filled with naughty desires that he would like to complete with her.

While neither have crossed the friendzone before the list is revealed, neither can see anyone else filling the roles once the list is out between the two of them.

Once they set ground rules, the main one – remain friends no matter what – crossing off each of Nina’s desires becomes Adam’s focus and quickly discovers that Nina is a very good student to his teaching skills.

EXCERPT

“I want you to remember, Faith,” he said softly. “I want you to remember all the good times and leave out the bad ones.”
“I don’t think I get to pick and choose.”
“We both did things we weren’t proud of. Things that I’d be happy for you to forget. But if it comes back to you, I want you to know that I’m sorry. It was my fault.”
I wanted to ask him what we’d done, what awful things we’d put each other through. But I was afraid to know. Maybe, in some ways, my memory loss was a blessing. All the bad things had been wiped clean while for Will, he had to live with them each day, had to remember every word, every hurtful action.
I leant in closer and rested my head on his chest. At first his body stiffened, then he relaxed, put his arm around me and held me close.
We laid like that for a time while something skimmed the sky high above us.
“Look a shooting star,” he said.
“The International Space Station.”
“Show off.”
I giggled. Then he bent his head, put his lips on mine and kissed me.

EXCERPT

THE NOT SO MEET CUTE

When someone at the craps table beside me shouts, “Yes!” I flick my gaze in that direction. Standing at the very end is a tall woman in tight black pants with the shapeliest ass.
There’s an untidy pile of flecked chips in front of her. A modest stack of chips is also nestled on the edge of the table.
Apparently, she’s winning.
Curious, I watch as the woman makes the standard pass line bet. There are three shooters at the table, and they will each take a turn rolling the dice, although they will all be betting on each roll.
Not my game of choice.
No skill.
Just luck.
She’s first, so she grabs the dice, gives them a blow for luck, and rolls them both down the table in her come out roll.
I can’t see the dice, but when she jumps up and down, I can only guess she rolled a seven or an eleven. It’s still her turn, and when she does her little ritual with the dice again, I find it more than sexy. On this roll, if she rolls a two, three or twelve, she loses.
I feel like I want to cross my fingers for her.
Luck.
It’s all about luck.
She jumps up and down again, and I know she’s still in.
Roll after roll, she’s kicking ass.
Now, I’m holding my breath because she’s on the point roll. The dealer turns the puck to ‘ON’ and places it on the number that was just rolled. All she has to do is avoid a seven to keep going.
She’s still as the roll comes to a stop. I feel more emotion watching her than I did with everything I had on the line back at the blackjack table.
“Bad luck,” I hear someone groan and watch as the pile of chips she had pushed forward disappears.
Shit!
She sevened-out. She practically sags at the table as the loss registers. Just then, the concierge hands me a receipt that acknowledges the transfer of my winnings, and shaking my head for her, I start to stride toward the exit.
Shouldn’t play a game luck.
Somehow, she accidentally pushes the small remaining pile of chips under her arm onto the floor as I’m passing behind her. Without a second thought, I find myself diving down to help her recover her money.
When my eyes meet her sparkling blue ones, I can’t move, and all the breath is knocked squarely from my chest.
Elizabeth.
It’s been ten years since I broke her heart, and shit…
Little Liz Laurent is all grown up.

New Release – Shaking the Sleigh by Delancey Stewart

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Shaking the Sleigh
Series: Seasons in Singletree #1
Author: Delancey Stewart
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 25, 2019
BLURB

I’ll just admit it right up front—I don’t love the holidays.
In fact, Christmas makes me downright cranky.
Call me the Grinch if you must, but if your dad chose that day to decide he was wrong about that whole wanting a family thing, you’d grow up miffed about mistletoe too. Every candy cane, ugly sweater, and falalalala reminds me of the worst day of my life.
So when my uncle—a bigwig network executive—gives me one last shot to salvage my disastrous TV production career on a show called Holiday Homes, I’ve got no choice but to suck it up, head to the small town of Singletree, and fake festive.
The problem?
Callan Whitewood. The sexy, sullen former pro-soccer player might be the one person on earth who hates the holidays more than I do. After a devastating injury ended his career, he’s left with a limp, no idea what to do with his future, and a cheerless attitude worthy of Ebenezer Scrooge. But I’ve got a TIME LIMIT to convince the gorgeous grump to allow his home to be featured as the pinnacle of the Christmas episode of the show that’s going to save my career.
That is, if I can keep my hands off him… but I’m having a bit of trouble sticking to the task.

SHAKING THE SLEIGH is a standalone holiday romantic comedy with a satisfying happily ever after, plenty of festive chuckles, some sexy times and a few chinchillas. Maybe a cat. (And there might be a wombat because wombats really do fit into almost any story.)

Title: Everything’s Better with Lisa
Series: Everything’s Better #3
Author: Lucy Eden
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 25, 2019
BLURB

When I first noticed Lisa Betancourt, she threatened me with a baseball bat.
To be fair, I deserved it.
But none of that mattered when I found out I had a baby brother—a brother who is now left to my care. Too bad I don’t know the first thing about parenting. If I have any hope of not ruining this poor kid’s life, I need Lisa’s help. She quickly becomes my salvation, my heart. And even though our timing is all wrong, I can’t help but wonder how I can convince her to stay with me—with us—forever.

Cole Simmons is just my insensitive jerk of a neighbor.
Or, that’s all he used to be.
Now he’s in completely over his head, taking care of an adorable child that I’m getting way too attached to way too fast. And the scary part? I’m starting to get attached to Cole, too. After my nasty divorce, I was sure I’d never risk falling in love again—but Cole has me questioning my resolve at every turn. Frankly, I’m starting to wonder if Cole isn’t the only one who is in completely over his head.

Neither of them was looking for love or a ready-made family. But what will they do when they realize they’ve stumbled head-long into both?

“So, that happened.” I tucked my bottom lip between my teeth and raised my eyebrows.
“It definitely did.” He rolled me on top of him so he could kiss me again. “Are you having regrets?”
“Definitely not, but—”
“Is this where you tell me that even though we spent the last,” he checked his watch, “fifteen minutes having the best sex I’ve ever had, during which I made you come three,”
I held up four fingers, grinning,
“Oh, excuse me, four times. It was a bad decision and we should never do it again?”
“Cole…”
“Lisa, I’m probably going to lose my job tomorrow and CJ’s gonna wake up any minute. Can we just enjoy this moment?”
A wide grin split my face. “The best sex you’ve ever had?”
“That’s what I said.”

In the Unlikely Event AMAZON

Sometimes you meet people who are out of this world, so you make them a part of yours.

A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.

An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.

We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.

Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.

In New York.

And he’s America’s music obsession.

The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.

The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.

Last time we spoke, he was a beggar with no intention of becoming a king.

But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.

I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.

I have a career I love.

A boyfriend I adore.

An apartment, a roommate, a life.

I changed. He changed, too.

But Mal kept the napkin.

Question is, will I keep my word?

Excerpt

When I finally come face to face with the street artist standing on the side of the pavement, his guitar case open and full of rolled-up notes and change, I understand why his grandfather told me I’d recognize him with the self-assurance of an avid believer.

I’ve never seen someone like him before.

He is beautiful, true, but that’s not what stands out to me. He is radiant.

It’s like his presence has a presence. He sucks the air out of everything in his vicinity, making it impossible not to look at him. Malachy is tailor-made for a huge, colossal heartbreak. Everything about him—his tattered jeans, filthy boots, white shirt, and leather jacket that was broken in decades ago—screams trouble. He looks like a seventies heartthrob. An icon. A Terry Richardson muse. Bruce Springsteen pre-fame.

His voice is like honey and warm spices. It lulls me into a place in my mind I’ve never been before, even though it’s far from beautiful. It is gruff, throaty, and smoky. When someone bumps my shoulder to get closer to him, I snap out of my reverie and realize what I’m listening to.

“One” by U2.

The coincidence is strange. I try to tell myself it’s nothing. This is Ireland. U2 is a national treasure.

His eyes are squeezed shut as he sings. It’s like no one exists other than him and his guitar. Something warm rushes through my skin, like a heat wave, and I shudder in delight.

Warmth.

I always thought there was something melancholy about street performers—the way people walk past them, ignoring their music, their art, their passion. But this guy, he’s the one doing the ignoring. The tables have turned. He’s got the crowd eating from the palm of his hand. Every woman here is under a thick, sweet spell. He’s got that Harry Styles quality that makes girls want to bed him and older women want to adopt him. The men are a cross between impatient, annoyed, and jealous. You can see it in the way they tap their feet, check their watches, nudge their wives and girlfriends to move it.

The song ends, and Malachy Doherty cracks his eyes open and stares directly at me, like he knew I’d be here. Like he watched me watching him through closed eyes. Disoriented—and for some reason wanting to do something, anything—I throw a bill into his guitar case and look away, realizing to my horror that I threw the fifty euros his grandpa gave me. Everyone around me murmurs and whistles. They think it was intentional. I can feel my face flaming red. I bet he thinks I want to sleep with him.

Do I? Probably. But should he know that? Hell no.

Exclusive Excerpt:

The following week is more of the same. I work at the store, make dinner, and Trent and I spend our evenings watching a movie. We’ve wiped out most of his DVD collection and are now working through the movies On Demand. We’ve graduated from just watching the movie and eating to having actual conversations. I talk about my childhood in Philly, how wonderful my mom was, and how I ended up going to college on a rowing scholarship.
I learned that Trent joined the military right out of high school and then went on to be a physician for the navy. Talking to him is easy and he never pushes me to speak about the…other things. I was telling him the truth the other night, the night we split the last of the cheesecake. The night I know I had woken him with my screaming, but he wouldn’t admit it.
I don’t understand him. How he can be so kind and thoughtful…so selfless?
I’ve never met anyone like him, and I can’t help but feel guilty. He’s a grown man with a career and incredibly handsome. He comes home every night after work just to eat dinner and sit in front of the television with me. I know his two closest friends live hours away, but he must have others, ones who are local. Doesn’t he want to spend some time with them…or with women? The thought of Trent with a woman makes me suddenly feel nauseated and I set my dinner plate down on the coffee table.
Trent came home from work tonight earlier than planned and surprised me with Chinese takeout, claiming that it was his turn to cook. I just laughed at his idea of cooking and happily dished out the lo mein and sesame chicken onto two plates.
“Not a Chinese food fan?’ he asks, placing his empty plate next to mine.
“No, I love Chinese food. I just…” Just thought about you going out on a date with another woman and I wanted to be sick. I stand and grab the plates, but in my haste to escape I stub my toe on the coffee table and let out a string of expletives that would make any sailor proud. Trent takes the plates from my hands and sets them back down.
I sit on the couch and grab my foot.
Trent takes a seat next to me. “Let me see, Tia.” I wiggle my toes. I don’t think I broke anything, but two of them hurt like a bitch. “Tia, please?” I shake my head, mostly from embarrassment, but plop my leg into his lap. He peels off my sock and looks at my toes. My big toe and the one next to it throb, but he is gentle as he inspects them. “I think you’ll live. But I’ll get you some ice.” Trent flies off the couch and comes back with an ice pack in less than a minute. He sits back down, raises my injured foot and places it in his lap. He holds the ice against my toes while he continues to examine my foot.
“What is the prognosis, Doctor?”

“Just a good old-fashioned stubbing. We’ll still ice it for a bit, though.” His thumb presses on the ball of my foot and I let out a little moan. “Sorry, does that hurt?”
No, that felt glorious. “No, just feels good,” I say. Our eyes lock and his thumb continues to apply pressure.
“Do you want me to stop, Tia?” he asks.
What are we doing? Housemates don’t give each other foot rubs.
I lie to myself and say that he is just doing his job, that he is a doctor who is taking care of his patient. And then I realize that doctors don’t give patients foot rubs, either.

Title: Yours Since Yesterday

Author: Jennifer Bernard

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Yours Since Yesterday:

Once they were best friends. Now they’re from two different worlds.

Zoe Bellini’s world exploded the second she kissed her best friend…and not in a good way. Every teen dream came crashing down when Padric was whisked away from Alaska, and her luck hasn’t improved in the last fifteen years. In fact, the pizza shop owner’s terrible track record with men has become a local legend. She doesn’t expect it to change when Padric—now a world-famous rock star—sails back into town. It’s not like they can just pick up where they left off…but her traitorous body sure wants to try.

Padric Jeffers never expected to return to his hometown of Lost Harbor, Alaska—not after the scandal that sent his family fleeing. But a mysterious letter with a warning about his childhood friend Zoe? That has him postponing his tour and hopping on the next flight north. Zoe’s been on his mind and in his lyrics since he left her behind, and once he sets eyes on the stunning grown-up version of his best friend, his mission is clear: do whatever it takes to have her—and keep her—this time around.

Easier said than done, since not everyone in town is excited about Padric’s return. And someone will do anything it takes to get rid of him. Can a pizza maker and a rock star overcome their history—not to mention scandals, angsty fans and unexpected danger—and find their way back to love?

A standalone novel in the Lost Harbor, Alaska series.

Blog Tour – BREAK THE RULES by Roxie Noir

BTR - BT banner.jpg

Some lines shouldn’t be crossed.

Some rules shouldn’t be broken.

June is one of them, and I know it.

Break the Rules, an all-new hilarious, brother’s best friend romance from Roxie Noir, is available now!

RN_BreaktheRules_Ebook

As a forest ranger, I believe in the simple life. I prefer cabins to apartments, trails to freeways, and trees to people. My life is orderly, predictable, and quiet.

Until it’s hit by a woman I never saw coming — Hurricane June.

She’s fierce. She’s feisty. She has a laugh like the first day of spring, and she’s so pretty that I can’t breathe when I look at her. June will only be in town for a few months—just while job-hunting. She won’t last until winter, but how can I resist?

Except I have to. She’s my best, oldest, and most loyal friend’s baby sister.

Betraying him would be the worst thing I’ve ever done. Not betraying him might be the hardest.

Especially once we start working together on a secret project. All this spending time together, sneaking around at night, and lying to her brother about what we’re doing sure feels like more than friendship.

June might break my heart. Her brother might break my nose.

But I guess some things were made to be broken.

RN_BreaktheRules_T4.jpg

Excerpt

I like this side of Levi. It’s a side I’ve only ever seen glimpses of before in the past two weeks — sweet, slightly goofy, teasing and funny, different from the serious, quiet man I thought he was. It’s a strange revelation, but a good one, even if I wish I liked it less.

“One minute,” I tell him, and pull back from the window.

I shut it. I pull the curtains closed. I wonder what I’m doing and why on earth Levi has shown up beneath my bedroom window at twelve-thirty in the morning. I wish that the sight of him down there had made me feel differently, that I was indifferent and vaguely curious instead of suddenly buzzing and feeling like I’m being lifted aloft by several large birds.

I tiptoe down the stairs and through the living room, still wondering. I haven’t heard from him at all since we ate pizza in the back of his truck two nights ago, and I wish that didn’t bother me. I wish I thought less about him sitting there, as night fell, laughing and showing me his cell phone or telling me that he’s an alien.

I wish I thought less about him, period.

When I get outside, Levi’s leaning against his truck, his shoulder-length hair out of its usual knot.

I’m not sure I remember seeing him with his hair down before. He looks different. Relaxed. Like himself.

“I named the dog,” he says as I walk up to him.

I don’t know what I was expecting him to say, but that wasn’t it.

“You do know that the last time a man came to my window, I called my brother to get rid of him,” I say. “I’m sure he told you about that.”

“He certainly did,” Levi said. “And if I were in my right mind, it might have deterred me.”

“You’re in your wrong mind, then?” I ask, tilting my head slightly, keeping my voice down.

“You didn’t ask what I named the dog,” he says.

“Did you come here at twelve-thirty in the morning to tell me you named your dog?” I ask.

Levi smiles, holds out one hand. I step forward and take it, his skin warm and he enfolds my fingers in his.

“No,” he says. “I came here to say that I think you should come back to my place for a nightcap.”

“A nightcap?”

“Yes,” he says. “I’d like to take you home, fix you a drink, and seduce you, and I’d like to do it without thinking even once of your brother.”

Book Reviews, Contemporary Romance

Review – Enemies by Tijan

ENEMIES ECOVER

Enemies (Standalone)
by Tijan (Author)

This review is from: November 23, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Enemies is a compelling new adult novel that will take your breath away. I needed an entire day to process after reading this amazing book and I needed that day to wade in all the emotions that reading Enemies invoked.

Between Stone and Dusty, Tijan brings you a story that is more than just two people who lost a childhood friendship. Together they deal with grief and loss, but because they are no longer friends the way they deal with it is through a swirling hurricane of emotional turmoil. Both hurting and healing each other at the same time without necessarily discussing their past. This sets off a journey of push and pull that can be a bit destructive at times, but given their age, certainly appropriate too.

Dusty has the need to close herself off to people. Every and anyone she ever gets close to leaves her in some fashion. The tears continually flowed down my face with how she felt about herself. It is heartbreaking. When she meets Stone again for the first time after years of separation, it is explosive. Due to circumstances I don’t want to mention in my review since you need to read them and enjoy, Stone basically barges in and takes over her life. Coming from her public enemy #1 hurricane Dusty is set free.

Even as Stone helps her in small, but also big ways, throughout her healing process you find that perhaps Dusty was never far from his conscious thoughts, maybe tucked into his subconscious for awhile until the time was right for them to need each other once again. Stone doesn’t hold back when it comes to his childhood friend. He is protective and caring, but also steps back when Dusty asks him to step back. You really can’t help but like the big guy who is supposed to be the enemy.

Tijan never fails to write emotionally charged stories that are drenched with deep emotions and still she flashes you what beauty lays beyond heartache. This is why I love reading her books. Make sure you add Enemies to your TBR or preorder it now!

Title: Wordless
Author: Sabrina Stark
Genre: NA Romance
Release Date: November 23, 2019
BLURB

Sparks fly between a plucky intern and her billionaire boss in this new standalone from a USA TODAY bestseller.

For someone so famous, he sure has a lot of secrets. He’s Jack Ward, my billionaire boss, at least for the summer while I support his national book tour. But the funny thing is, the tour doesn’t make much sense. The odd cities, the late-night excursions, the secrets simmering between us – they’re all making me a little crazy, especially when he gives me one of those looks. You know the kind.

He’s up to something. I just know it. And I’d love to find out what. There’s just one tiny problem. With his movie star looks and devious mind, he’s distracting me to no end. And just maybe, I’m distracting him, too.

But the worst thing? I’m pretty sure I like it.

***Wordless is a fun, full-length standalone romance with a guaranteed happily-ever-after!***

EXCERPT

Chapter One

For someone I’d known less than four hours, he sure was bossy.
“Pack your stuff,” he said. “We’re leaving.”
I stared up at him. “We?”
His hair was thick and blond, and his eyes were so blue, they made the ocean look dingy in comparison. “Well you’re not going alone,” he said.
I struggled for a reply and came up empty. Honestly, what was I supposed to say? The guy in front of me wasn’t just a new acquaintance. He was also Jack Ward – my favorite author, a total hottie, and a billionaire several times over.
Unfortunately, he was also just a little bit scary. Ask my roommate. He’ll tell you – well, unless he’s already escaped through his bedroom window, that is.
I glanced around the condo where I’d been living for the past two weeks. To say the arrangement had gone to crap would be giving crap a bad name.
Turns out, my roommate was a druggie and a dude. On top of that, he wasn’t terrific at keeping his horse in the barn, if you know what I mean.
Until just five days ago, I’d never even met the guy, much less realized that “Nicky” wasn’t short for Nicole, but rather Nicholas. But in my own defense, the gal who’d rented me the place had neglected to mention this little detail, along with a whole bunch of other stuff – on purpose, no doubt.
And me? Like a total sucker, I’d actually trusted her.
Now I didn’t know who to trust. I bit my lip. If only my sister were here.
Jack’s voice interrupted my thoughts. “If you need boxes, let me know. I’ll have some delivered.”
I blinked. It was nearly ten o’clock on a Sunday night. This was a small town. Nothing was open. I shook my head. And was box delivery seriously a thing?
Not in my world, it wasn’t. Then again, I wasn’t a billionaire. In fact, my bank balance was dangerously close to zero.
I just had to ask, “Who’d do that?”
“Do what?” Jack said.
“Deliver boxes. I mean, nothing’s open.”
He gave me a look. “Do you need them or not?”
“No,” I admitted.
“Good,” he said. “Then get packing.”
I didn’t appreciate his tone. “Don’t you think that’s kind of bossy? I mean, I never said for sure that I’m moving.”
His jaw tightened. “Well you’re not staying here. I can tell you that.”
Yup, he was definitely bossy. I wanted to argue. But I couldn’t. And why?
It was because he was right.
I couldn’t stay. Not anymore. But I’d known that already.
Stalling for time, I glanced around the condo. The place was surprisingly nice. It had come pre-furnished, too, which meant that nearly nothing was mine.
Sure, I had some clothes in the bedroom along with my notebook computer and a few essentials. But the sad truth was, I could probably cram everything I owned into my cheap compact car.
No boxes needed.
Still, I shoved a hand through my hair and tried to think. Leaving sounded easy enough, but where would I go?
A hotel?
As if I had the money.
My sister’s place?
That would’ve been the plan, if only she were in town.
I was still running through my options when Jack said, “Becka.”
I jumped at the sound of my name. “What?”
“You’re not packing.”
“I know, because I’m thinking.”
“So do both,” he said.
I sighed. On this, he was right, too. After all, it would take me at least a half-hour to gather up my stuff. Surely by then, I’d know where I was going.
But for now, I was simply going crazy.
Some of this was Jack’s fault. Not only had he just assaulted my scuzz-bucket of a roommate, he was distracting the heck out of me.
Some people go for movie stars. Or rock stars. Or hell, even reality TV stars. But me? I’d had my nose crammed in one book or another for as long as I could recall. Some of those books were better than others.
But seven years ago at the ripe old age of seventeen, I’d fallen head-over-heels in love – with his books, sprawling medieval tales that were beyond brutal, and yet sometimes so beautiful they almost made me cry.
It was totally insane. Jack was only a few years older than I was. In fact, he’d just turned thirty-one last month. And how did I know this?
I’d read it on the internet, of course.
Now, he was glowering down at me like I was a bratty kid refusing to clean my room.
I wasn’t bratty. I was just confused.
Hell, I’d been confused ever since showing up on my sister’s doorstep four hours ago, only to encounter someone who definitely didn’t belong.
And that was putting it mildly.

EXCERPT

“Open your eyes, Tiana.
My eyes flutter open and I sit up. A silhouette of a fully transformed fae male is sitting cross-legged in front of me. He’s the spitting image of Lucian with small differences. He looks like he’d be taller and brawnier. Despite him merely being an image made of magic and light, his eyes glow deep purple, the darker cousins to Lucian’s. His midnight hair is long and pulled back behind his head in a braid running down his back. Rowan could be Lucian’s older brother. Or a more dangerous, feral, and powerful version of him.
“Why do you look just like him? How are you doing this?”
My reply comes out breathy and strange. He replies, and while his mouth moves, I can only hear him in my head.
Using your magical well, I can manifest like this for short periods of time. I look like Lucian because I am his distant relative. Before I became the king of the fae, I was a citizen of the spirit court within the royal family.
My hands move toward his form by themselves before I snatch them back again, “Can I touch you?”
He moves closer, one blink he’s a few feet away, and then his knees are nearly touching mine. It doesn’t startle me. If anything, I lean closer to him in wonder. His form is made up entirely of magic, swirling colors moving quickly throughout.
You may touch me, if you’d like to.
I reach out with shaking fingers and lay one hand against his chest. It feels solid and real. Like he’s living and breathing right in front of me. When his fingers come up to brush my cheek, my eyelids flutter closed. It almost feels like my own soul is caressing me, comforting me, making me whole again. I hold his face in my hands and run my thumbs over his smooth cheeks. When Rowan smiles at me it takes my breath away. Magic is sparkling off him so vividly that I almost want to shield my eyes.
While Lucian calls to my spirit, Rowan calls to my very being. The darkest depths or recesses of my soul. He knows everything about me, yet I can sense love and tenderness from him that makes me feel safe and happy. We move to lie side by side together with our hands clasped tightly.
We lie there like that long after darkness had fallen and the stars came out. We spoke about our fears, his life he led while being king, and what may come of us in the future. It’s a simple interaction that has no expectations, no tensions, and it’s a relief to have this time with him. Although, it may have had the opposite effect of what Rowan was hoping for. While I feel closer to him, and my heart aches for him, he still isn’t real, right? He can’t stay with me forever like this. And do I only like him more now because he resembles Lucian, the man that I’m almost certain is my fated mate? The confusion in my chest grows as I roll onto my side to face him.
His form is dimmer now as if he doesn’t have much more time before he will disappear. It allows me to better study his features. Rowan has a strong jawline, deep coal violet eyes, and crow’s feet that speak of many hours spent laughing. I can see his emotions plainly on his face as he watches me in return. Love, fear, uncertainty.
Are they simply a reflection of my own feelings, or is Rowan capable of feeling things? I’m still not sure how this shared body thing works. The thought leads me back to the main question I keep asking. As if sensing my inner monologue, he leans over me, one hand on either side of my head. His eyes search my face, while his looks vulnerable. The pure honesty we have between us gives me the courage to ask him one of my many burning questions.
Are you real?

New Release – Hey Neighbour by Hailey Queen

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Hey Neighbour
Author: Hailey Queen
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 22, 2019
BLURB

Jessica Goodwin. My next-door neighbour. The woman who unearthed the pleasant memories of my first and only crush.
She is single. Seductive. Occasionally sassy.
And my sworn enemy.
Although things could have been different between us if …
… I hadn’t killed her cat on the very first day, she moved next door.
It was an accident.
Definitely an accident.
But due to my lack of emotions, it appeared otherwise.
Still, bad blood could have been averted. The unfortunate situation could be handled as adults.
But she made the ultimate mistake of calling me an animal and struck a nerve.
Now, I’m in a war against her. Which, according to my niece, Frankie, is a petty rivalry from my side only, and I should stop making a fool of myself.
If only I would be able to do just that.
I’m a typical sociopath who just has to put people down for his own fulfillment.
A ruthless, vengeful, most anti-social, outlaw, son of a bitch who has nothing but time on his hand and skills to make her life a living hell.
But to my surprise, there were some feelings left, or it’s she who has awoken them along with my cock.
Why else would I steal glances of her?
True, she is sexy as hell. Crafted by God himself on a Sunday with a mold that has since been broken.
But that can’t be the reason enough for me to pull down my sunglasses down the bridge of my nose, stare at her un-blinked, and while enjoying the view, whisper to myself ‘Hey Neighbour.’
Or could it?

‘Hey Neighbour’ is an enemies-to-friends-to-lovers romantic comedy featuring a quirky alpha living a recluse life and the girl next door who would make him want to live differently. It’s a full-length standalone romance with no cheating or cliffhanger and ends with a guaranteed HEA.

EXCERPT

“Nobody has come this close to beat me, Jessica. You should be proud of yourself.”
Sitting in my bra and panties across Odin, it doesn’t make me feel this way. I was proud at the start, though, when after binge-watching poker videos for five hours, I learned enough to win four hands straight, leaving him down to his underwear.
I was surprised at myself, thought of it as a beginner’s luck, but the tide changed, and begun Odin’s streak of wins, which led me to believe that it was all a ruse.
A con I was roped in.
A bait I took.
“Full house.” I put my cards down at the table—my best hand for the evening—sure that despite playing against an experienced player, I’ll win and save myself from the humiliation.
Odin glance at his cards and crinkles form on his forehead.
A smile floats on my face; he doesn’t have the cards to beat me. At last, the mighty has fallen.
He sighs. “Well played, Jessica.”
“Yes!” I shout, raising my hands in victory as if the Cubs have won the Super Bowl.
“Straight flush!” he says, spreading his cards on the table.
My hands fall down like a lifeless bird from the sky, and my mouth opens wide with shock.
I lost. No matter which article of clothing I lose, I’ll still be leaving my dignity behind even if I win the next hand.
“Oh, Jessica. You are so gullible. It’s only you and me here. No matter if I get naked or you, it would still be my win.”
“So, would you consider accepting the defeat and strip naked?”
“Yeah, sure.” He scoffs. “Does a hunter let go of his prey if it says pretty please?”—He rubs his hand together—“Go on, then.”
I will have to remove one article of clothing, and I choose my panties.
My thinking is straight. I’ll quickly slide down my panties and close my legs, shutting the view, thereby giving myself a fighting chance to keep my bra on.
As I put my hand on the string of my panties, Odin waves his finger in a no. “Nuh-uh! Bra.”
“What? Why?!”
“Winner’s choice. We agreed on it before we began playing.”
“But you haven’t exercised this right the whole night. Why suddenly now?”
He rubs his palm across his chest like a sleazeball. “Because I desperately want to see your boobs bare. I am fascinated by them—especially the mole on your heart.”
“Was ogling them under the constellations not enough for you?”
“Aha! So, you did see me glaring at them that night?”
“It was hard not to when you were acting like a pervert.”
“Now, I don’t have to.” He takes his face in his hands and props his elbows on the table as if he is waiting for the trailer launch of the next Avenger movie.
“Is this really what you want?” Crossing my fingers, I try my luck one more time.
A perverted smile forms on his face. “Oh, absolutely. I may keep your leopard bra as a souvenir too. You look good in leopard, by the way…” He roars like a tiger. “…very fierce. But I am sure you’ll look much better without it.”
“Pervert!” I mumble, reaching my hand behind my back, and close my eyes. I can’t look at him, seeing me like a piece of meat. Uncomfortably, I unhook my bra, remove my arms through the straps, and drop it down to my lap. “Are you happy now? Take a good look at them.” Because you are never going to see them again. “You tricked me into doing this. I’ll never forget this, Odin.”
No lewd remarks. Not a word in admiration. Has his heart stopped? They are a set of boobs—not a Pandora box.
I open my eyes, hoping, he must be in a heavenly state, drooling all over the table, but I find him missing. The chair across me is empty.
He has expressly stated his infatuation with my boobs by his stares, and today, by his words. Must be plotting for long to see them bare. And now, that his desire has come true, he is nowhere to be found.
A white towel descends from above, against the front of my body. I turn my head slightly and see Odin standing behind me, wrapping me up.
But why?
I don’t understand this person.
He gently grazes my face with his fingers as if he is appreciative of me being here. Then, he leans down and kisses me on the top of my head. “Not like this.”

AUTHOR BIO

Unlike what the name suggests, Hailey Queen is not a Royalty, although it would be fun if she were one. She is just a headstrong girl from Minneapolis, Minnesota, now residing in North Carolina.
A die-hard romantic at heart, she writes what she likes to read—laugh out loud, tears running down your face, swoon-worthy, slow-burn sexual tension romance. She loves to write and binge watch on Netflix while having dark chocolate.
When she is not doing these things, she packs her camping bag and off she goes for hiking, or when feeling a little cocky, to Louis Vuitton to set herself straight.
I think I have said enough. To know more about her, you have to follow her.

My life was perfectly planned out. I did all the right things.  My eyes were always on the prize.  Working hard in college landed me the job I always wanted with security and great benefits. I dated a boy-next-door type with a solid future. We got engaged and planned the perfect wedding.  Being sensible and responsible put me on the pathway to a picture perfect life.

Everything was going off without a hitch.

And, then it all went to this sh*t!

My dream life blew up in my face like a bad firework on the 4th of July.

Since walking the straight-and-narrow was a gigantic waste of my time, I decided to walk on the wild side for a change.  Man oh man, did I get more than I bargained for. A night to remember…

And an STD.

Getting chlamydia changed my life.

Who would have thought an STD would help me pick up the pieces of my shattered life?

Certainly not me.

So, thank you, chlamydia.

New Release – Yours Since Yesterday by Jennifer Bernard

NOW LIVE! Yours Since Yesterday by Jennifer Bernard! Check out this great romance and be sure to grab your copy today!

About Yours Since Yesterday:

Once they were best friends. Now they’re from two different worlds.

Zoe Bellini’s world exploded the second she kissed her best friend…and not in a good way. Every teen dream came crashing down when Padric was whisked away from Alaska, and her luck hasn’t improved in the last fifteen years. In fact, the pizza shop owner’s terrible track record with men has become a local legend. She doesn’t expect it to change when Padric—now a world-famous rock star—sails back into town. It’s not like they can just pick up where they left off…but her traitorous body sure wants to try.

Padric Jeffers never expected to return to his hometown of Lost Harbor, Alaska—not after the scandal that sent his family fleeing. But a mysterious letter with a warning about his childhood friend Zoe? That has him postponing his tour and hopping on the next flight north. Zoe’s been on his mind and in his lyrics since he left her behind, and once he sets eyes on the stunning grown-up version of his best friend, his mission is clear: do whatever it takes to have her—and keep her—this time around.

Easier said than done, since not everyone in town is excited about Padric’s return. And someone will do anything it takes to get rid of him. Can a pizza maker and a rock star overcome their history—not to mention scandals, angsty fans and unexpected danger—and find their way back to love?

A standalone novel in the Lost Harbor, Alaska series.

Title: So That Got Weird

Author: Amelia Kingston

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: December 24th!

About So That Got Weird:

A painfully awkward love story.

Incomprehensibly awkward Elizabeth Wilde is desperate for love. Connection. Intimacy. After a lifetime of romantic failures, the twenty-one-year-old gamer realizes she needs help. Professional help. She needs…

A sex tutor.

The devastatingly hot jock Austin Jacobs is just the man for the job. As the reigning campus sex god, he has the playboy act down pat. But underneath those six-pack abs beats a broken heart. He doesn’t trust people and he sure as hell doesn’t believe in love.

The odd couple strike a deal. Four weeks of ‘tutoring’ for five thousand dollars.

When Austin coaxes Elizabeth out from behind her computer screen, the attraction they feel is undeniable. They’re both a little broken, but somehow their jagged edges fit. And when their world comes tumbling down on top of them, they each have to decide if this weird thing called love is worth fighting for.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Well, Mav.” I’m trying to annoy him, but secretly I like the idea that it’s something only I call him. Maverick. It suits him. “I made us a schedule, actually.” My voice has more uncertainty in it than I was hoping. I hand him the carefully thought-out schedule I crafted over the past few months.

“Of course you made a schedule,” he quips with a smirk. His smile only grows as he reads. “You made us a sex syllabus, a sex-abus.”

I groan. He continues undaunted.

“Four weeks, four topics. Looks like we round a base a week. This week’s kissing. Next week is touching, groping, fondling. Then, oral. Giving and receiving. Last week we hit a few home runs,” he offers.

Sex with Austin.

I get lost in my thoughts of what these next four weeks are going to be like. My body flushes and I cross my legs, fighting the building warmth between my thighs. It’s not like I haven’t pictured all this before, but now I’m starting to realize it’s actually going to happen.

You are going to lose your virginity to Austin Jacobs!

“You seriously think we need a whole week dedicated to kissing?” he challenges.

“It’s important to build foundational knowledge in a new subject before advancing to more challenging material.”

Oh my God, you’re such a nerd.

“Come here.” He saunters around the kitchen island and I stand up to meet him. He steps right into my body. I start to lean back, but he grabs my hands and puts them around his neck. The gesture highlights our height difference. I can barely reach without him having to bend down.

His fingers slide over the delicate skin of my forearms and down my sides, causing an effervescent tingle across my whole body. He wraps his arms around my waist, pulling me into him firmly. I’m so small in his embrace. It makes me feel dainty and weirdly feminine.

“Kiss me,” he demands.

“Now?” I swallow roughly.

“Now would be good.”

I don’t do anything.

I just stand there.

Kiss him!

Just do it!

He’s right here and he is asking you to do it!

My heart races, my stomach flutters. My throat gets tight. My mouth goes dry. I spiral into panic. Those beautiful blue eyes are bearing down on me expectantly, burning into me. I close my eyes, count to three in my head, and do it. I push forward on my tiptoes and quickly peck him on the lips. Peck is a generous term for the limp-lipped travesty that is my first attempt at a kiss.

“There,” I declare in placid triumph.

“Damn, I must be a horrible teacher. Is that what I showed you last night?” he says in mock disappointment.

I look down at his chest and shake my head, feeling like a kid who got caught sneaking candy before dinner.

“How did I kiss you last night?” It isn’t a rhetorical question. He wants me to answer.

“Deep,” I say without thinking. “A-And long,” I add with a shaky breath and a blush. That’s the only way to describe his kiss. Other than being simply amazing.

“Hey.” He lifts my chin up so our eyes meet again. “I know you’re nervous, but you shouldn’t be. This isn’t a big deal. I know you can do this.” Great, now Austin’s giving me a pep talk. Hello, Self-esteem. I’d like you to meet All Time Low. This is a whole new level of embarrassing.

Closing my eyes, I try to think back to his kiss last night. I take a deep breath and this time I pull him down to me. He leans down easily. I run through the checklist I made last night. I brush my lips gently across his as I tilt my head to the side. I place my lips on his, teasing his bottom lip with my tongue lightly.

“Open your lips,” I whisper against him.

“Yes, boss,” he quips. I stifle an annoyed sigh and slide my tongue into his mouth. He lets out a soft moan as his hands slide down to my butt.

Holy shit! You just made Austin Jacobs moan!

About Amelia Kingston:

Amelia Kingston is many things, the most interesting of which are probably California girl, writer, traveler, and dog mom. She survives on chocolate, coffee, wine, and sarcasm. Not necessarily in that order.

She’s been blessed with a patient husband who’s embraced her nomad ways and traveled with her to over 30 countries across 5 continents (I’m coming for you next, Antarctica!). She’s also been cursed with an impatient (although admittedly adorable) terrier who pouts when her dinner is 5 minutes late.

She writes about strong, stubborn, flawed women and the men who can’t help but love them. Her irreverent books aim to be silly and fun with the occasional storm cloud to remind us to appreciate the sunny days. As a hopeless romantic, her favorite stories are the ones that remind us all that while love is rarely perfect, it’s always worth chasing.

Former soldier Logan Bridges never imagined he would go from serving his country to helping raise a house full of children after a devastating family loss.

Dealing with his rowdy siblings and cousins proves to be almost as treacherous as the battlefields he left behind. And though he’s committed to making it work, he soon finds he’s in over his head.

Until someone from Logan’s past, steps in to help.

Mollie has always been independent, but finds herself growing attached to the family, including Logan, and discovering there’s more to life than working and solitude.

Logan and Mollie quickly form a strong bond, and when attraction brings them closer, they agree getting involved wouldn’t be good for the children. But when they both struggle to keep the blurry line of friendship between them, Mollie won’t take that step unless Logan can open up and face his painful past.

Series info:
The Bridges Brothers series follows four brothers as they attempt to navigate life and love after a tragic family loss. Each book can be read as a standalone but is more enjoyable read in order.

EXCERPT

I quickly check my messages and when I look up, a guy is standing next to Mollie, talking to her.
I see her smile at him and it doesn’t look any different than the one she shows me, which kind of pisses me off. I’d expected one of those plastered polite deals that uninterested women give men until they leave.
As I sidle up right behind the two, she laughs, and my heart is strangled when her wannabe dimple appears. That’s my fucking dimple. I don’t say anything, waiting for them to acknowledge me.
“You need something, buddy?” the guy says, looking me straight in the eye. His face says annoyed, as if he’d invested the night instead of arriving literally seconds ago.
“Not a thing…except maybe for you to go find a seat somewhere. You’re blocking my chair.”
He ignores my words and dips his head in Mollie’s direction. “He your boyfriend?”
“No,” she tells him.
That blows me out of the water. Of course, I’m not her boyfriend, but telling him straight up “no” wounds me.
“Maybe I could get your number,” he tells her.
Am I not standing right freaking here?
I laugh. Out loud, because no matter what, it’s ridiculous that she’d give a guy her number when she came with me. Isn’t it?
“Hey, man. We’re trying to have a conversation here.”
I can hear him, but I’m no longer looking at him. My eyes are burning a hole into the side of Mollie’s head, waiting for her to set him straight. Then I see the slow twist of her body, her eyes flicking my way, and the easy grin take over her mouth. Either she’s really enjoying my pain, or she’s getting off stringing this guy along. Either way, I’m relieved that smile is not for this jackass.
“She just said you weren’t her boyfriend,” the guy reiterates.
I already feel like a first-class idiot, but my next words will boost me into champion status. “Yeah, well, I’m her…somebody. So, you can leave now.”
He scoffs. “What the hell is a somebody?”
“It’s the person who makes sure you don’t do stupid shit like giving your number to a douche at a bar.”
He looks at Mollie as if she’s going to correct me. She shrugs with a head tilt but her face clearly gives him confirmation. When he turns his attention back to me, she covers her mouth to hold back a laugh.
“Screw both of you.” He takes a step back and lifts his drink. “She’s not hot enough for me to kick your ass.”

I never set out to be famous. It sort of fell into my lap.
Just like Finn.

He was exactly what I needed in an assistant, and the exact opposite of everything I looked for in a guy, which made hiring him an easy decision.

It was perfect.
Then it wasn’t.

One by one, I started to fall for all of Finn’s imperfections, leaving me to question…

Was I simply looking for all the wrong things in a man? Or was Finn perfect because he was imperfect?

AUTHOR BIO

Leddy Harper had to use her imagination often as a child. She grew up the only girl in a house full of boys. At the age of fourteen, she decided to use that imagination and wrote her first book, and never stopped.

She often calls writing her therapy, using it as a way to deal with issues through the eyes of her characters.

She is now a mother of three girls, leaving her husband as the only man in a house full of females.

The decision to publish her first book was made as a way of showing her children to go after whatever it is they want to. Love what you do and do it well. Most importantly Leddy wanted to teach them what it means to overcome their fears.

Blog Tour – The Rebel King by Kennedy Ryan

TRK - BT banner

“This is the future of romance.” — Adriana Herrera, author of the Dreamers series

The Rebel King, the powerful conclusion to the All The King’s Men Duet, from USA Today bestselling author Kennedy Ryan, is available now!

REBEL_KING_FINAL

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.

Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.

Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all?

Excerpt

Her words break on a sob, and the elegant line of her shoulders trembles. “No one like you.”

I palm her breasts, squeezing the tight nipples between my fingers. Her indrawn breath tells me she likes it.

“Anything you want,” she pants, circling her ass on me. “Take it.”

“I want today with you,” I say, changing the angle of my thrust slightly, but hitting a new spot that makes her moan.

“I can’t.”

I force myself to stop abruptly and start easing out.

“No!” She reaches back and grabs my ass. “Don’t you dare.”

I stop pulling out, but don’t move. She squirms, tries to grind on my cock, but I grip her hips, holding her still.

“Son of a bitch,” she growls. “Finish me, Doc.”

“No.”

“Do you think I don’t feel how hard that cock is? You want this, too.”

“Obviously,” I force my voice to casual, like it doesn’t matter to me one way or the other. “But I want a day with you more. What’s it going to be?”

I push in and give her a quick, shallow thrust.

“Oh, yes.” She starts circling her hips, and I stop again. “Bastard!” “I’ve told you my terms.”

My cock hates me, silently cursing me in four different languages for not finishing this right now.

“One day,” she concedes breathlessly. “I can give you one day.”

I take off the reins and fuck her until we’re both shaking. We almost fall when our orgasms hit. I ease out, sit on the shower bench and set her on my lap. Greedy, thirsty, we kiss until my lips are numb, her fingers burrowing into my wet hair, my fingers tunneled into hers. I break the kiss, taking her face between my slick hands and searching her eyes.

“One day,” I remind her, panting.

She nods, sucking my bottom lip smiling. “One day.”

Release Date: November 21, 2019

What’s a girl to do when she needs to bury the memories of her past?

Apparently, book a room at a cozy Vermont inn for Christmas…as if that’s going to fix years of pining for the one that got away. It doesn’t matter. This holiday getaway is exactly what the doctor ordered. I’m ready to close that heartbreaking chapter in my life for good and start the new year with a bang.

It should be easy.

Except there’s one problem—Joe Parker—with that killer smile and those drown-in-me brown eyes. The man who was supposed to be my forever, but instead left my heart shattered and in disarray.

He’s here. In this wintry hamlet. Daring me to risk everything for him. Again.

I came to this small town looking to leave the past behind me, not get reacquainted with an old flame. And yet, one kiss, and I’m consumed by feelings—heart, mind, and soul. He still makes me tingle in all the right places.

Denial is a powerful tool, but how long can I fight falling for him all over again?

Can I trust him enough to give us another shot?

New Release – Break the Rules by Roxie Noir

BTR - RB banner.jpg

She’s my best friend’s kid sister.

Only she’s not a kid any more.

Break the Rules, an laugh-out-loud standalone romance from Roxie Noir, is available now!

RN_BreaktheRules_Ebook.jpg

As a forest ranger, I believe in the simple life. I prefer cabins to apartments, trails to freeways, and trees to people. My life is orderly, predictable, and quiet.

Until it’s hit by a woman I never saw coming — Hurricane June.

She’s fierce. She’s feisty. She has a laugh like the first day of spring, and she’s so pretty that I can’t breathe when I look at her. June will only be in town for a few months—just while job-hunting. She won’t last until winter, but how can I resist?

Except I have to. She’s my best, oldest, and most loyal friend’s baby sister.

Betraying him would be the worst thing I’ve ever done. Not betraying him might be the hardest.

Especially once we start working together on a secret project. All this spending time together, sneaking around at night, and lying to her brother about what we’re doing sure feels like more than friendship.

June might break my heart. Her brother might break my nose.

But I guess some things were made to be broken.

I love writing sexy, alpha men and the headstrong women they fall for.

My weaknesses include: beards, whiskey, nice abs with treasure trails, sarcasm, cats, prowess in the kitchen, prowess in the bedroom, forearm tattoos, and gummi bears.

I live in California with my very own sexy, bearded, whiskey-loving husband and two hell-raising cats.

EXCERPT

“You had a plan when you walked into my office five minutes ago. What was it?” He gripped the edge of the armrest with both hands, crossing his legs at his ankles. The tiny flame in my chest grew bigger and spread down to my core.
“I had no plan.” I admitted because the extent of my thoughts when he texted was to come in here and have sex. All I could think of was touching him and feeling his weight on me again. But now I was a little pissed. He could’ve been more explicit. Like, hey, I’m just here to work, bring me the report. No sex. Get your mind out of the gutter. He could also wipe that knowing smile off his face. “What makes you think I had a plan?” I crossed my arms over my chest to cover my hardened nipples.
He rubbed the side of his face. “The thigh-high stockings. You know how they drive me wild. Even if I can’t see them, I know that’s the only kind you own.”
If that was true, why was he still five feet away from me? Why had he not ripped my clothes off already and had his way with me on the couch?
“I have a meeting to go to.” I bolted to the door. Before I could open it, his large hand pressed against it, effectively blocking me from leaving.
“I don’t think so.” His voice was deep and so full of meaning. He walked me back to the living area until my butt hit the back of the sofa. “You had a plan. Show me.” He gripped my waist and shifted so he was the one caged in.
I could go, or I could stay and get what I came here for. I slipped my hands inside his suit jacket and pushed it off his shoulders. His dark gaze stayed on me as I removed his dress shirt. A low moan like a hiss escaped his lips when I ran my hands down his muscled chest. His pecs were harder than I remembered. It seemed Derek’s hard body was directly proportional to the amount of stress he had at work. The more they pinned on him, the more time he spent in his boxing ring. These past three weeks must have been hell for him.
“Now you.” His voice sounded strained.
Self-control was Derek’s superpower. I gave up all pretenses and removed my blazer and silky top quickly. My skin felt hot from needing him so much. His lips parted when I finally let my skirt pool at my feet.
He cradled my face and kissed me hard. “Fuck. Valentina. You came to work wearing that underneath?” His mouth was warm, and he tasted of cinnamon gum. I melted into him, fumbling with his belt.
“The door.” I panted in between kisses.
“I locked it.” He gripped my ass and wrapped my legs around his waist as he strode around the sofa and sat with me straddling him. “Valentina. How do you do it? How do you make me forget about everything?” He freed me from my bra and sucked on my aching nipples, switching back and forth until I couldn’t wait anymore.
“I need you now,” I whispered in his ear.
I didn’t care that my voice was laced with desperate desire. He cupped my butt cheeks and lifted me enough to give him room to lie flat on the cushions with his head on the decorative pillow. My thighs rubbed his sides as I rested on top of him, topless and without a clue what to do next.
My confusion must have registered on my face because he placed both hands behind his head and grinned at me. His biceps bulged on either side of him.
“Your show.”
“What?”
He bucked under me to get comfortable, as if he were getting ready to watch a movie or something. The grin that twitched his lip was both infuriating and such a turn-on.
“You want me inside you. Do it.”
