BULLY ME ANTHOLOGY:
Loving your tormentor isn’t easy, especially when they collect broken hearts and parade them around like trophies. They’re the bad boys, the alpha a**holes, and the thorns in our sides. They push us past our limits, turn us on, and break us.

They’re our bullies.
They’re the class of 2020.

Eight bestselling authors are teaming up to bring you eight unique stories about the guys we love to hate.

This anthology benefits one of the largest anti-bullying organizations in the world, and all proceeds will go toward helping to support victims of bullying.

Like You Care Blurb:
I am nothing.

Nobody.

I’d rather be invisible than deal with what happens on the days my classmates decide to acknowledge my existence.

But then Turner shows up – all cool confidence and witty banter – and all of a sudden I don’t want to be invisible any more. I want to be seen.

I want him to see me.

I’m not who he thinks I am but I’m starting to suspect he’s not all he says he is either.

Just my luck that he starts to make friends with my tormentors. How am I supposed to tell him who I really am? How am I supposed to show him my true face? What if the boy I’m falling in love with decides I’m nothing too?

The BelleCurve Series, an emotional and angst-filled series of standalones from K.K. Allen, is available now and has a beautiful new look!

Up in the Treehouse

UpInTheTreehouseNEW_Amazon

“I wanted to tell him all my secrets, but he became one of them instead.”

Chloe Rivers never thought she would keep secrets from her best friend, Gavin Rhodes. Then again, she never imagined she would fall in love with him either. When she finally reveals her feelings, rejection shatters her, rendering her vulnerable and sending her straight into the destructive arms of the wrong guy.

The Rhodes twins never saw the betrayal coming. Chloe has always been their forbidden fantasy—sweet, beautiful, and tempting. But soon the lines between family, friendship, and love become as tangled as the roots of the treehouse they once shared.

Now it’s too late . . .

Four years after a devastating tragedy, Chloe and Gavin find themselves crashing back into each other’s lives. Haunted by the past, they’re forced to come to terms with all that has transpired to find the peace they deserve. Except they can’t seem to get near each other without combatting an intense emotional connection that brings them right back to where it all started . . . their childhood treehouse.

Chloe still holds her secrets close, but this time she isn’t the only one with something to hide. Can their deep-rooted connection survive the destruction of innocence?

Under the Bleachers

UndertheBleachersNEW_Amazon

“One kiss can change everything.”

Fun and flirty Monica Stevens lives for food, fashion, and boys … in that order. And she doesn’t take life too seriously, especially when it comes to dating. When a night of innocent banter with Seattle’s hottest NFL quarterback turns passionate, she fears that everything she once managed to protect will soon be destroyed.

Seattle’s most eligible bachelor, Zachary Ryan, is a Southern Gentleman at heart, a star NFL quarterback, and an undercover entrepreneur. He’s also addicted to the flirty office assistant with a sassy mouth—and not just because she tastes like chocolate and strawberries. She’s as challenging as she is decadent, as witty as she is charming, and she’s the perfect distraction from the daily grind.

When Monica comes to a crossroads in her life, Zachary becomes an unavoidable obstacle, forcing her to confront the demons of her past. But as their connection grows stronger, she knows it only brings them closer to their end. It’s time to let go.

To have a future, we must first deal with our pasts. But what if the two are connected?

Sneak Peek – BEEFCAKES by Katana Collins

Beefcakes - SP banner

Things are about to get sticky…

Beefcakes, an all-new hilarious, second-chance standalone romance from Katana Collins, is coming March 24th and we have the FIRST sneak peek!

9.11_Beefcakes

I might as well permanently add the label “Ex” to my name. I’m an Ex-Mr. Universe. Ex-Mr. Olympus. An Ex-Hollywood Stuntman. But no one from my small hometown cares anything about that. They only care that I’m the ex-boyfriend to the beloved Mayor’s daughter, Elaina Dyker.

And now, ten years later, I’m back, helping my siblings run my mother’s bakery while she takes on chemo. What should have been a routine cupcake delivery turns into utter chaos when the bachelorette party thinks I’m a stripper. And what’s worse? Elaina is the maid of honor.

But the meme about us sure went viral fast. My small hometown has become positively infested with tipsy bridesmaids looking for my erotic cupcakes.

Now Hollywood’s knocking again—and this time they want me and my ex, Mr. Beefcake and Ms. Prude, to star in a reality show.

It could solve all my problems—except her.

Excerpt

I arched my brow at her. “I bragged about knowing you so well…but man. I did not see this almond croissant massacre coming. What do you have against almonds? Or was it the amount of butter that offended you? Because as a fitness expert, let me tell you butter isn’t the enemy. Sugar is the enemy.”

She laughed. “I, uh…I might have some anger management issues.”

I took the bag from her and peeked in. There were knuckle marks against the outside of the croissant. Literal knuckle marks. I barked a laugh. “Elaina Dyker. Did you punch the croissant?”

She laughed, pressing her lips together as though this would hide the fact that I saw her adorable little giggle. She brought her thumb and forefinger up beside her temple. “Maybe a little.”“Did you even try a bite?”

She shook her head no. “I like my routine. I like my daily lunch of yogurt and almonds.”

I made a face. Because she had to be exaggerating. Sure…she liked them. But having that same thing every day? Even chocolate cake every day would get tedious. “You can like yogurt and almonds but still indulge every now and then, you know.” I reached in and pinched off a piece of the smashed croissant, holding it out toward her lips. “C’mon. Live a little. I promise you, it is actually healthy, if that’s your concern.” Not that she needed to be concerned about that. “Almond flour. Gluten free. Grain free. Only two net carbs. The only sugar is the honey in the honey roasted almonds and the natural sugar in dates.” Her eyes grew wide at that and I knew I had hooked her.

She reached out her hand to take the piece of croissant from me, but I pulled back. “Nuh-uh,” I teased. “We can’t have your fingers getting sticky. Might ruin that fancy suit you’re wearing.”

She rolled her eyes, but parted her wet lips, her tongue peeking out just enough for me to place the croissant on top of. She moaned as soon as it hit her mouth, and her eyes fell closed as she slowly chewed and swallowed. “That’s…that’s healthy?”

I nodded. “See? I’m not just a pile of muscles. I’ve got some talent, too.”

Her head fell to the side. “I never said you weren’t talented. I just wish you wouldn’t show off quite so much of your other assets.”

I grinned. “I thought you liked my assets?”

“I do,” she answered absentmindedly, then immediately shook her head, realizing what she’d said. “I mean, I did.”

KC - PhotoAbout Katana

As an author and a story-teller, it is the lifeblood to which my ideas take flight. And I believe in giving credit where credit is due. Occasionally someone (ie – my husband) will try to secretly switch out my beloved regular coffee for decaf. I always know the difference. ALWAYS (I’m looking at you, SEAN).

I am incapable of achieving the perfect ponytail. I’m dyslexic. I can never wear white without spilling on myself. And I’ve never read Pride and Prejudice (gasp!).

When I was younger and stole my mother’s Harlequins to read beneath the covers with a flashlight (seriously, did we ALL do this? I think we did.), I wanted to read about the tough as nails heroine. The perfectly imperfect girl with quirks and attitude and sass. And the anti-heroes who were anything but “Prince Charming.” Forget the knight on a white horse… give me the bad boy on a motorcycle.

So, now, I write those romance novels I craved to see on the shelves all those years ago—the sassy heroines. The badass heroes. I spend my days in the throes of my imagination, and am loving every minute of it. I can travel anywhere and become anyone I want to be. One day, I’m a mechanic in Boston and the next, I’m a vampire stripping in Las Vegas.

Since penning my first novel back in 2012, I’m now an international author with 15 published books, in a wide range of contemporary romance genres–(Paranormal, New Adult, Small town, Erotic Suspense… you name it!).

After living for a decade in Brooklyn, NY, I took the plunge and moved to beautiful (although kinda chilly) Portland, Maine. I now live full time in ‘Vacationland’ with a kind of mean cat, a mellow chihuahua, and a very NOT mellow lab-pittie mix. Oh, yeah… there’s a husband who draws comics somewhere in that mix, too. I can usually be found in a coffee shop with my nose in my laptop wearing fabulous (albeit sometimes impractical) shoes.

I love connecting with readers and fellow sassy storytellers, so feel free to drop me an email at katana.collins@gmail.com or connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@katanacollins). You can find a list of my available books over on my Bookshelf or if you’ve already read a book, it would make my day if you wrote a review!

Cover and Title Reveal – Never Kiss A Stranger by Logan Chance

🔥🔥 HOT COVER & TITLE REVEAL 🔥🔥

It’s HERE!! Check out Logan Chance’s HOT cover!! Never Kiss a Stranger is coming April 7th!! You will love this hilarious enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy featuring a feisty wedding planner and a sexy mysterious hero. Add to your TBR today!

BLURB

Kiki

Ellis Atwood is the devil. Ok, maybe that’s too harsh. Ellis Atwood is ruining my life.

First, he demolishes a perfectly good wedding trellis.

Second, he destroys a gorgeous doggie wedding that I spent ages planning. (I kid you not.)

Third, he makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, and that is not ok. I prefer the cold and harsh way my fiancé makes me feel so much better. (wait, that didn’t come out right.)

Fourth, and there is a fourth, he gets me all wound up and flustered.

And last, when he unexpectedly kissed me it made me forget my own name, or the fact that I’m getting married…in a month.

Please someone help me out. I’m a mess.

Worst part is, Ellis isn’t the bad guy I first thought he was.

And being forced to spend time with him is making me realize that he needs my help more than anything.

So what’s a girl like me to do?

Ellis

I’m only in town long enough to figure out a plan with my brother on how to save our brewery from the awfulness that is my father. Oh and be in a wedding.

Where I may or may not be crushing a little too hard on the bride-to-be. (spoiler alert, I’m crushing hard.)

She’s really cute. Like seriously.

And she has the cutest job, she’s a dog wedding planner. (I kid you not.)

I can see why Henry loves her.

I can see why everyone loves her.

I can see why I’m falling for her.

I’m usually not a relationship-type guy. Call it picky or whatnot, but usually I get bored easily. So, my plan is simple. Spend as much time with Kiki (soon to be Faniki, I know) and hopefully get bored with her adorkable smile and sexy legs that go on for miles.

Then, I can save the brewery, be the best man of the wedding, and get my butt back to Chicago and away from the happy couple.

About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

Cover Reveal – Pants on Fire by Lacey Black

COVER REVEAL
Title: Pants on Fire
Author: Lacey Black
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Melissa Gill Designs
Release Date: April 7, 2020

BLURB

Cricket

Success is what you make of it. That’s my motto and the premise of my speech; the one I’m heading back to Southern Illinois University to give at my college alumni reunion. As the morning co-host of Good Morning, San Francisco, I was asked to be one of the keynote speakers, and while I’m honored to do so, there’s only one problem. The other speaker is Danny Ohara, my former boyfriend. Throw in an issue with my credit card that leaves me stuck at the airport, no rental car in sight, until a familiar face appears like a guardian angel in sexy black glasses.

Here’s my dilemma with my attraction to Rueben Rigsby, my airport savior and old friend from college: I’m not supposed to be attracted to him. At all. He’s my ex’s former roommate. Yet that doesn’t stop my big mouth from lying about the status of our relationship when we come face-to-face with said former roommate. As in, we have one.

Together.

Rueben

I don’t know why I agreed to come back to SIU for the alumni reunion, but I’m damn sure glad I did. When I found the familiar face stranded at the airport, I readily agreed to give her a ride. It’s great to catch up with Cricket Hill, as we make our way back to the place we ultimately met. What I’m not prepared for is this overwhelming attraction I feel for her. I’m not supposed to notice how amazing her butt looks in a pair of black yoga pants. She’s a friend. Period.

But Cricket has other plans. When she lies about our budding relationship to my former roommate and her ex, I have no choice but to go along with it to save face. I have to pretend to be her boyfriend. I mean, it’s one little white lie, right?

Wrong.

NICO

She serves me coffee late at night when I come around to write lyrics,
but it’s not the caffeine I’ve gotten addicted to.

We’ve got the spark, but she’s the only woman in town
who seems to be immune to my charms.

When it’s time for me to leave for my cross-country tour,
I just can’t imagine not seeing her for months.

So I offer her a job on the road with me.

KAT

Everyone in LA knows that Nico Todd has a way with songs and with the ladies.

What he doesn’t know is that I would love to let him have his way with me.

But my life can only revolve around one infuriatingly cute guy—
the six-year-old that I live with.

Imagine my surprise when Nico finds out about my little boy
and tells me to bring him and my mom on the road too.

And imagine Nico’s surprise when he realizes my son
is the biggest charmer of them all.

AUTHOR BIO

Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn’t allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Series: Handwritten & Heartbroken Duet #2
Author: Ace Gray
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2020

I’ve been called a robot. Made of stone. Heartless. But that’s because no one ever saw what was underneath. Not until Mina McLennan saw right through me.

We made so many mistakes, left each other with scars so deep and wreckage in our wake but I couldn’t help but find her, fight for her. I mean, I fell in love with the way she loved me. And so deeply, so full of a furiously beating heart that I asked her to marry me.

Turns out, that was the easy part.

Speed dating…
A bunch of men and women tossed into a room for a night of awkward dates.
Sounds horrific, right?

Three men catch my attention.

Another steals my time.

Cover Reveal – Fool Me Twice by Carrie Aarons

FOOL ME TWICE by Carrie Aarons
Release Date: March 12th

Add to Goodreads:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51029776-fool-me-twice

Blurb:
When my best friend died of cancer just before her eighteenth birthday, she left her coveted bucket list to me.

The things she already crossed off? Skinny dipping, going to Paris, completing the local hot wing challenge, road tripping to the ocean, and sending out a message in a bottle.

So, it falls on me to finish it for her, to honor her memory. In the next year, it’s my mission to:

1. Dye my hair
2. Have sex
3. Camp out in a tent
4. Go bungee jumping
5. Get revenge on Lincoln Kolb

Most are doable, some terrify me, and then there is the last item on the list. When the raven-haired football god dumped my best friend during senior year of high school, she was devastated. The jerk with charm for days found out she was sick, and betrayed her in the worst way possible.

But he doesn’t know me, I went to school a town over. Now, to fulfill my promise, I’m the newest freshman on the campus where he is the big man. If there is one thing, aside from cheap beer, that a jock can’t pass up, it’s a shiny new girl.

So when I catch his eye, play hard to get, and then fall into his bed, I know my scheme is working to perfection. But what Lincoln can’t see coming is the beatdown I have planned for his ice-cold heart.

Unfortunately, what I never saw coming was the one he had planned for mine.

 

About the Author:
Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She’s a Jersey girl living in Texas with her husband, daughter and furry son.

New Release – The Hookup Equation by Roxie Noir

THUE - RB banner

Teach me everything.

The Hookup Equation, an all-new romantic comedy with “the perfect mixture of witty banter and forbidden moments” from Roxie Noir, is available now!

The Hookup Equation Final

My whole life, I’ve been a good girl. I follow rules like nobody’s business. I obey guidelines like I was born to it. Show me a line, and I’ll toe it.

I’m even a twenty-two-year-old virgin. Good is my middle name.

And then, I break one tiny little rule. Miniscule. Inconsequential.

Next thing I know, I’m trapped with an incredibly handsome stranger. He’s got eyes like cut emeralds, biceps that makes my head spin, and a smile that has me rethinking all my life choices.

We escape a bar bathroom together. We go on an impromptu date. We share the hottest kiss I’ve ever had, one that leaves me panting for more. We promise to see each other again.

Turns out, we see each other the next morning.

In my calculus class.

Which he’s teaching.

My handsome, sexy date is Professor Loveless, and we’ll be seeing each other plenty. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday all semester.

There’s no choice but to call it off. We both have too much at stake: I could lose my scholarship, and he could lose his entire career.

But I can’t call off the way I feel.

I can’t call off the way he looks when he rolls up his sleeves and explains imaginary numbers.

I can’t call off the heated glances, or the way our hands touch when I hand in my homework, or the memory of his body pressing against mine that night.

I’m a virgin.

He’s my professor.

And if we give in, it could cost us both everything.

But I’m so tired of being a good girl.

Review – Fool Me Once by Nikki Ash

44596154. sy475

Fool Me Once
(A standalone)

by: Nikki Ash

Review Rating:

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This was my first Nikki Ash novel and I cannot express enough how much I loved it!!

Fool Me Once touched on several tropes which is why I think it touched on so many of my emotions. The story began with a heavy look on the relationship between Blakely and her sister Sierra. The family they now were, the family they lost, and the connection that Blakely was deeply trying to regain with her only remaining family member. There were so many times their relationship reminded me of my daughters and the times they have been close or struggled with their own battles. It broke my heart in pieces reading it and I needed Blakely to find some happy.

When Blakely first meets Keegan it is just meant to be a fling, something to boost her spirits out of the slump she was in and definitely there were to be no feelings involved. At least that is what she kept telling herself. When they parted ways after spring break and she left with a part of Keegan and no way to contact him, her life drastically changed, but perhaps not all changes were a bad thing. How often do we fool ourselves that we aren’t invested, but turn out the bigger fool in the end? Been there and done that.

Four years come and go and the most important people in Blakely’s life are her sister and the one friend who has always been there for her, Brenton. While she only sees him as a friend, he has other ideas. By luck or fate, when Blakely actually runs back into Keegan and he once again turns her life upside down, Brenton doesn’t exactly like the idea of being set aside. Blakely isn’t sure how to make everyone happy, but she also knows she needs each person in her life as they are all important to her. This is the ride and the journey that will make your heart race. What will happen? What has happened? GAH!! What I will tell you is that it is like riding a rollercoaster; you will be really glad you got on once the ride is over, but you might scream during the ride.

Fool Me Once is an emotional ride. It’s heartwarming at times, shocking at others, and such a journey you won’t want to miss it.

Synopsis:

I met Keegan when I was on the beach in Florida.
He literally crashed into my world.
I wasn’t looking for romance, but his two-dimpled charm made my heart go haywire.

We both had one thing in common: we were here to escape our realities.
One week. Just the two of us. Not a care in the world.
I didn’t know it at the time, but that week would forever change my life.

Four years later, and as fate would have it, Keegan and I are brought together again.
It’s as if the universe is telling us this is our second chance.
The more I get to know him, the harder I fall.
Falling hopelessly in love is inevitable with a man like him.

Only the joke’s on me, because the guy I’m falling for isn’t the man I thought he was.
You know how the saying goes: Fool me once
I’ll be damned if I’m fooled again.

Review – One Night Stand In by Lauren Blakely

50188464. sy475

One Night Stand In; Boyfriend Material #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Lauren Blakely

Review Rating:

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A Lauren Blakely novel never disappoints and I loved reading the rekindling relationship between Lola and Lucas in this second chance romantic comedy!

Two friends that had the potential to be more back in college, but due to a falling out they didn’t, but here we are ten years later and with a crazy night ahead of them filled with one amazing scavenger hunt they have a chance to rekindle, make amends and possibly find something they lost a long time ago.

I adore Blakely’s books for being low drama, high on fun, and they always make me feel good. I’m guaranteed to laugh out loud and potentially blush every single time so seriously, what is NOT to love!!

“My device often has the gall to remind me of my fitness inadequacies with occasional notifications, like You’ve only walked two miles today,  to which I say, Fuck you, phone, I can berate myself just fine, thank you very much.”

I have a FitBit and yes, I too get annoyed. Yet, I wear it everyday and I have panicked, seriously panicked when I have forgotten to wear it. The day did not exist!! I also had to stop and think what is wrong with me? while also fudging the numbers on my app to make sure the day did exist, because who else would know if not my fitbit (I mean it tells me everything else LOL)…I love that I can snort laugh through these moments with Lauren’s characters.

Okay, back to them. Lola and Lucas are another gem couple that you will fall in love with. Their scavenger hunt is fun and really made me wish I had one to do in my immediate future. Lauren Blakely brings out the fun and certainly made me miss my girlfriends.

While each book in the Boyfriend Material series is a standalone, they do work wonderfully together. Each is different, but also awesome in their own way.

What I also love about this series is that these three best friends have not only found their mates but that each one is also somehow connected to the writing industry. Whether an editor, a graphic designer, or a blogger they are all interconnected and supportive of each other. It is a great sisterhood. One of my favorite series of Blakely’s yet.

Synopsis:

Lucas Xavier is the last person I want to spend 24 hours with, let alone two minutes. Exes are exes for a reason. In his case, for a million reasons. Because he’s not only an ex-lover, he’s also an ex-friend. We didn’t just break up – we combusted in a spectacular bonfire of barbs and doors slammed.

Nothing will change that. Not his clever wit, not his ridiculous good looks, not his unfair levels of charm. And definitely not a wild dash through the city that takes us on an accidental scavenger hunt through our past, where we stop for a tango lesson, pancakes and a visit with some llamas.

And certainly not time together to make amends and say we’re sorry.

But, let’s say that was enough…it’s not like you can fall in love in 24 hours.

One Night Stand-In is a Boyfriend Material series standalone! Three best friends. Three outrageous proposals. Three chances to fall in ove. Three brand new standalones from Lauren Blakely!

EXCERPT

I nipped her shoulder. “Too right. And as soon as we’re back from breakfast, I plan on putting you in a comatose state again. But first I need to feed my…” My voice trailed off as I looked for the right word.
She slowly sat up. “Not sure what to call me, huh?”
“Guess not. We’ve been playing house and you’re posing as my fiancée, but that’s different now.”
She nodded slowly as she studied me. “I guess it is.”
I wanted to say the word. Mine. But that was too much and would certainly scare her off. So instead, with a nervous laugh, I said, “Don’t look at me. I haven’t a clue how to do this. But I know staying away from you isn’t really an option I’d like to explore any longer.” God, way to pussy out.
She chewed her lip. “It’s not like I have some kind of manual either. I don’t really— I mean I haven’t really had a lot of relationships. And I don’t really do the whole trusting-people thing, so this is hard.”
Panic flared in my chest. I was fucking this up.
She didn’t want this. I scrambled for a way to make sure she stayed in my life. Fuck. We’d start with the bed. We were good there. I could bring her around with great sex, right? “Why don’t we just take it easy and see where the meandering road leads? Maybe we’ll make a good team.” Fuck. Why did I sound like a complete wanker?
She looked down at her hands before slanting me a glance. “Xander, you’re paying me to be here. It doesn’t feel… right.”
Bollocks. I knew the money would come back to haunt me. “I already wired the rest of the money into your account this morning when I woke up.” My heart hammered as I searched for the right words. Not too clingy, but interested. Yeah, more like desperate, mate. “I want you to stay because you want to.”
She frowned up at me. “Why did you do that? I could be the kind of person to walk out.”
No. Please no. Swagger, mate. Believe it. I shook my head. “Because I’d like the real girlfriend instead of the fake one, if you don’t mind. I mean, I’d like you to stay until I hear about the position on the board of the Trust, but even when you move back to your place, I’d like to see you. A lot. Exclusively.” Way to mark your territory, you knob.
My stomach knotted as I watched her. What if she said no? Well, I’d give her so many orgasms she’d be too weak to say no. That sounded like a solid plan.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone.

“I can’t believe you said that.”
“Why not? You have to know I’m attracted to you. I’m pretty sure you’re attracted to me. Don’t tell me you haven’t pictured me naked.”
“Oh lord, I am not having this conversation with you.”
“You have, haven’t you?” His dick started to respond to the thought.
“Colt,” she said firmly. “Don’t make me hang up on you.”
He laughed. “Okay, fine. We won’t talk about nakedness anymore. Unless you want to.”
“I don’t want to.”
“You sound uptight. Know what’s good for releasing tension?”
“Colt.”
Colt laughed again. “Kidding, Ang. Sorta.”

New Release – Mountain Danger by Vanessa Vale

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Mountain Danger
Series: Wild Mountain Men #4
Author: Vanessa Vale
Genre: Contemporary Western
Release Date: February 25, 2020
BLURB

Eve Miranski has spent weeks trying to find a killer who’s roaming free in Cutthroat. She’s also working hard to protect her battered heart from two alpha cowboys who aren’t making it easy. Yeah, two. After they meet at a holiday party, Shane Nickel and Finch Anderson have made it clear to Eve they’re interested in one thing. Her.

He might be the son of a movie star, but Shane Nickel’s content living out of the spotlight. When he meets the stubborn detective, his protective instincts kick in. He should let her go, find a woman whose work doesn’t require a gun and handcuffs (although he can think of some fun uses for the handcuffs) and not tasked with hunting down a murderer. His heart—and other parts of him—want Eve.

As a forest ranger, Finch Anderson spends more time in the wilderness than in town. That suits him just fine, until he meets Eve and everything changes. He wants her, wants everything he never thought he could have, but how can a felon and a feisty detective get along?

The men’s doubts won’t matter when new evidence in the Erin Mills case is discovered and the identity of the murderer is revealed. The only thing they’ll have to worry about is keeping Eve alive because the killer won’t be caught without a fight.

Dangerous. Unstable. Obsessive.

She believes in fairytales and awaits her prince.

But I arrive at her doorstep and I’m far from royalty.

The shiver down my back tells me he’s there. As if he were touching me.

Cold, angry, aloof—he’s everything I don’t need. But I can’t turn off my attraction when he’s near.

My sleeping beauty doesn’t realize just how dangerous I am.

She trusts so easily, smiles so beautifully. And while she sleeps, I watch.

With each passing night, I become more addicted.

Until I’m a man obsessed.

I feel his gaze on me, watching while I sleep.

Excerpt

“Hello, Remy,” she said in greeting when she finally reached him.

“Tempest,” he replied with a cordial nod.

She cocked her head playfully to the side, momentarily drawing his gaze to the way she’d swept her dark hair into an intricate style that was held together with crystal and pearl pins. The elegant updo left her shoulders and slender neck bare, emphasizing the pair of sparkling ruby earrings hanging from her lobes.

“Dare I say you look like you’re about to bolt for the exit,” she said, a light accusation in her tone.
He inhaled a deep breath—big mistake—because the scent of her soft, feminine perfume went straight to his dick. It took effort to remain outwardly unaffected, and for her, he allowed a smile to ease across his lips. “Guilty as charged.” He planned on doing exactly that as soon as she went on her way.

Her perfectly shaped brows furrowed in a concerned frown. “Are you not having a good time?

“Don’t take this personally, but fairy tales are not my thing,” he replied, his tone wry.

“How do you know that for certain?” she countered, a flirtatious glimmer now sparking in her amber eyes. “If you leave right now, you’ll never know if something magical might happen tonight.”

He huffed out a laugh at her whimsical, romantic notion, though the sound that erupted from his throat was as rough as sandpaper. “I’m not looking for anything magical to happen.” In fact, he’d do his best to avoid anything even remotely close to it.

She shrugged a smooth, bare shoulder. “Sometimes, it’s better to leave all expectations and cynicism at the door and just see where the evening takes you.”

He shook his head in disagreement. “Trust me when I say my cynicism is well earned.” And now he was determined that all that skepticism would protect what little was left of his soul from being further ransacked. “I was happy to come and support the Wilder Way Foundation, and now that I’ve done that, I think it’s best if I go. Good night, Tempest.”

He started to walk away, but she grabbed at his tuxedo sleeve. “Remy, wait.”

Not wanting to be rude, he stopped and glanced back at her.

The smile she gave him was so sweet and persuasive it made something in his chest shift ever so slightly. “You can’t leave without having at least one dance.”

Oh, yes, he could, and he shored up his resolve against that imploring look of hers. “I don’t dance.”

The hand on his arm slid down, until her cool, slender fingers curled around his, not only startling him but ensnaring him in more ways than one. “It’s a ballad,” she pointed out of the song Raevynn Walsh was now singing. “Everyone can slow dance. It takes minimal skill . . . unless you don’t trust yourself to stand that close to me?”

Her comment was underscored with a subtle challenge, an undeniable dare that alluded to the attraction between them that was getting increasingly difficult for him to resist.

“Just one dance,” she persisted oh so sweetly, her husky voice taking on a teasing lilt as she leaned in closer. “I solemnly promise not to cast any kind of fairy-tale spell on you.”

Bold and determined Tempest Wilder didn’t give him another chance to turn her down. With her hand secured in his, she pulled him toward the dance floor in front of the stage, which was already filled with other couples, and he would have looked like a jackass if he rebuffed her at this point. Once she found a spot for the two of them, she turned back around and didn’t hesitate to step as close as their bodies would allow.

The provocative feel of her soft breasts pressing against his chest and her supple thighs skimming along his was like a fucking shock to his celibate system, and he automatically tensed in response to the sexy female curves aligning perfectly to his more masculine frame. It was all he could do to keep his dick from getting hard as a spike against her lower stomach.

Still holding his one hand, she smoothed her other one up the lapel of his jacket and around his neck. Clearly sensing his discomfort, she tipped her head back and gave him a flirty smile, no doubt meant to tease him.

“So, when it comes to slow dancing, the man usually puts his arm around the woman’s waist,” she suggested, since he hadn’t yet done so. “And if he really likes the woman he’s with, he’ll splay his hand low on her back and pull her in close.”

Oh, he knew how to slow dance, but just the thought of putting his hands on her so intimately was wreaking havoc with his libido, and he had a feeling she was well aware of his predicament, too. It was another sexy dare from her, and while he’d spent the past few years avoiding this kind of close contact with Tempest, the sexually starved man in him who desired this woman slipped past all his carefully erected walls.

Fuck it, he decided. What could happen in a room full of people? Giving in to the temptation to touch her, to enjoy the feel of her in his arms, even for a few minutes, he placed his hand on her bare back and slowly caressed his palm all the way down to the base of her spine. The subtle pressure of his hand against her smooth skin drew her as close as the two of them could get, aligning their hips in a way that was suggestively carnal.

Breathing became difficult . . . He hadn’t been this close to a woman in over three years, and there was no denying she felt so damn good. She was incredibly soft, she smelled like heaven, and she made him want to do something wild and wicked and uncharacteristic—like take her somewhere dark and private where he could give in to the lust clamoring inside him.

An unmistakable shiver coursed through her as they shifted in time to the slow song. With her staring into his eyes, her own darkened with awareness as she moved her head to the side of his to speak into his ear. “See, touching me wasn’t so bad, was it?”

“You’re bad,” he murmured, shocking himself with his own playful response when he’d been so indifferent to women for years. It was as though this woman was rousing his sex drive, along with a more indulgent part of him, from a long, deep slumber. The thought was both frightening and exhilarating.

She drew her head back and laughed. To his surprise, the light, sensual sound eased the rest of the tension in his body, allowing him to just enjoy the moment with her.

She gave him a cheeky grin. “Just for the record, Mr. Lowell, I can be very bad, depending on the circumstance.”

New Release – Crazy Heifer by Lani Lynn Vale

Image may contain: one or more people

The Valentine Boys #2
Release Date: February 25
 
I fell in love with his rope skills. I stayed because somehow he took hold of my heart and made it his.
Callum Valentine didn’t mean to eavesdrop. Then again? When a man is calling a woman fat right in front of your table, it’s kind of hard not to intervene. Especially when the town’s most beautiful creature ever is the one being called fat.
Desi just wants to be left alone. After an ugly divorce, she thinks she’s in the clear. Then her ex takes it upon himself to continue to make her life miserable, giving Desi no choice but to take it or leave.
In fact, her bags were nearly all the way packed when Callum poked his nose into the most embarrassing spectacle the town of Kilgore has ever witnessed. The moment he declares her his and off limits, everything changes—and definitely not for the better.
As if things couldn’t get worse than being called a pitiful, fat heifer in front of the hottest man she’s ever seen, Callum has to go and say that she’s his, and they have to play a game that she’s not quite sure she wants to be playing.
But before her eyes, things change. And suddenly the rules of the game aren’t clear. And they’re crossing boundaries neither one of them see coming.

Review – Wicked As Sin by Shayla Black

Wicked As Sin; Wicked and Devoted #1  
(A duet: One-Mile & Brea; part 1)

by: Shayla Black

Review Rating:

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I’m new to both the Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers worlds. I had no reference point, but let me tell you I didn’t need one and I am now a HUGE fan of this Wicked & Devoted series!! Wicked As Sin is a hot, edge of your seat, emotional, grab you hard and you won’t be able to stop until the very end read!

It does end on a cliffhanger…GAH!! I can hardly wait for part two because this first part of the duet is angsty and full of suspense so I’m full of anticipation for what the second half will hold.

Pierce “One-Mile” is typically a loner. This is a great trait for his job as a snipper, but for participating in a group or getting along with others his loner personality has made it hard to break out of his solitary habits. When he meets Brea Bell she is the first person to make him want to break all of his habits. He can’t pinpoint why, especially since she belongs to another, but something about her calls to him and he has to have her.

From the moment Brea meets Pierce she can’t seem to stay away. Her dream is to find a good man and marry him. While it seems a little old-school traditional, it is what she wants, so why she’s attracted to a man who makes his living killing people, a man who prefers to have people refer to him for this particular skill set, she doesn’t understand, but she also can’t seem to shake the strong chemistry attraction between them either.

When their attraction finally comes down to a do or die decision what will they choice? Will their choices ultimately lead to a life together or their ultimate destruction? Brea and Pierce will have you biting your lip and turning page after page to find out what decisions they make. Shayla has really proven a master at writing a suspenseful romance.

You can jump right into Wicked As Sin without having read any of the other books in Shayla’s world. Like I said above this is my first book in either world and not only did I love it, I had no trouble following right along. So, if you are like me and this is your first Shayla Black book, no problem, jump right in and enjoy the ride, you will love it!!

Synopsis:

Finally!! The Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers worlds collide in epic fashion with the start of a NEW Wicked & Devoted series, steeped in the steamy, angsty romance you don’t want to miss. I’m finally spilling ALL the tea on Pierce “One-Mile” Walker and Brea Bell. This is the story you’ve been waiting for—coming March 3rd!

He’s ruthless. She’s off-limits. But he’s just met his one weakness… Now nothing will stop him from making her his.

Pierce “One-Mile” Walker has always kept his heart under wraps and his head behind his sniper’s scope. Nothing about buttoned-up Brea Bell should appeal to him. But after a single glance at the pretty preacher’s daughter, he doesn’t care that his past is less than shiny, that he gets paid to end lives…or that she’s his teammate’s woman. He’ll do whatever it takes to steal her heart.

Brea has always been a dutiful daughter and a good girl…until she meets the dangerous warrior. He’s everything she shouldn’t want, especially after her best friend introduces her to his fellow operative as his girlfriend—to protect her from Pierce. But he’s a forbidden temptation she’s finding impossible to resist.

Then fate strikes, forcing Brea to beg Pierce to help solve a crisis. But his skills come at a price. When her innocent flirtations run headlong into his obsession, they cross the line into a passion so fiery she can’t say no. Soon, his past rears its head and a vendetta calls his name in a mission gone horribly wrong. Will he survive to fight his way back to the woman who claimed his soul?

Review – Maybe Swearing Will Help by Lani Lynn Vale

50825118

Maybe Swearing Will Help; KPD Swat Generation 2.0 #3 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Lani Lynn Vale

Review Rating:

 

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Maybe Swearing Will Help is smexy, funny, and sweetly emotional (seriously I cannot stop thinking about the two of them).

I fell in love with Ford and Ashe. The constant frenemy push and pull that they’ve had their entire lives is intoxicating to read and I couldn’t put it down. I had to know what trouble they got into in their youth and then see what steamy emotions they were going to incite in each other as adults. It was all so, so good.

Luckily we didn’t have to wait long to get to the smexy times with these two because whew!!! Ford and Ashe deliver passionate hate-love sex and then we get a delicious story where they both have to come to grips with their frenemy status. This is my favorite SWAT 2.0 story yet.

Hints of what is coming next along with past characters popping in always makes Lani’s stories feel like coming home.

Synopsis:

Ford Spurlock has known Ashe Trammel since they were babies.

He’s also done his level best to stay away from her because every time he gets to within five feet of her, they’re fighting like cats and dogs.

Ashe is the apple of her father’s eye. The motorcycle club princess that was never to be harmed in any way—or touched for that matter. And he’s always resented the fact that she could get away with things that he couldn’t. Things that she then blames on him and he always gets punished for.

Fast forward to adulthood, and Ashe is still off limits. Still driving him insane. Still…beautiful.

She never misses an opportunity to give him hell, either.

That has to be why he agrees to do a photoshoot for KPD SWAT that’ll benefit her charity even when he’d rather shoot himself in the foot with his duty weapon.

***

Ashe never thought he’d agree.

Honestly, she thought she’d ask him, he’d say no, and that’d be the end of it.

She never realized that she’d leave his photo up in her cubicle, and it’d be the last thing that she saw every night as she locked her office door.

When they were kids, Ford used to be that boy that threw dirt at her and pulled her hair.

Now, he’s the same Ford Spurlock, only a whole lot sexier. And a lot harder to say no to.

When he challenges her to one date, she has no other recourse but to agree.

What she didn’t agree to was falling in love with Mr. March. Or wanting to give him everything she had to give.

EXCERPT

I suspended breathless and shivering as we swiped and dove, pushing and pulling, our teeth clashing with the delicate clink of silver against a china teacup.
I was the teacup and I had taken myself close to smashing.
I’d do it to myself though. No one else would get to take me there. This would be on me. If I could take my heart and give it bravely, without fear of consequence, then I’d own the repercussions. I could blame no one else.
On a backwards count from three, I broke my lips from his. His breath rasped with a ragged edge, reaching into my mouth and pulling me closer. “I have a theory.”
“Oh, you do?” I almost melted at the deep burr of his tone.
“It’s that some things are meant to be perfect. Some of us are designed to fit together just so: big and small; tall and short; black hair, blonde. Perfect opposites.”
“I think you’re taking credit for my theories.”
I held my hand up. At dinner the other night he’d wanted me to say the words. Here they were.
I dug down deep, scraping them out of my scared and petrified soul. “If we don’t try then we will never know how perfect it could be.”
His smile liquified my insides. “Now she gets it.”

Experience the best sex of my life – tick
Come face to face with my one-night stand at my best friend’s wedding – tick
Realize he could be the greatest and worst thing to ever happen to me – tick, tick, tick.

After years of pointless relationships and regrettable one-night stands, I’d given up on finding love and a happily ever after. That was until he barreled into my life.

The broody stranger with haunting eyes intrigued and enticed me in ways no other man had before. For five blissful hours, Fletcher Hunt was mine and I was his to own, adore, and worship.

Even if we were so different.

I was calm. He was chaotic.
I craved forever. He only lived for today.
But when we collided, we were electrifying.

We were also over before we began.

One phone call and six simple words was all it took to cement our fate. The future I’d imagined with Fletcher quickly became a cruel fantasy when the ghosts from his past returned to haunt the present.

And the happily ever after I desperately longed for?
That now belonged to the baby I was secretly carrying.

His baby.
