Blurb: A faceless name. That’s all she was when I agreed to play a part in deceiving her. And then the unexpected happened.
We met.
I yearn for her skin against mine. I crave her scent on my body. I want to make her laugh and then moan. And I do… in secret.
I promised my business partner I wouldn’t touch his sister. But I broke that promise.
Our little dirty weekends together are no longer enough. I want my bohemian girl in my bed every night. She wants a ring, marriage vows, and babies … all things that I can’t give her.
Our romance is explosive. Our love, epic. Our ending, miserable… unless I bend.
If I don’t bend, I’ll break.

Excerpt

“What do you want?” The look he pours over me is hot oil, burning me even through serviceable layers of cotton. His heated perusal caresses my face, sluices over my breasts and hips, and then pools at my feet. “Oh, that you won’t ever get again,” I say, my voice a soft, certain promise. “I don’t screw liars. I’m particular that way.” “Never say never,” he drawls, tilting up my chin with his finger. “Nev–” He crushes the word between our mouths. It falls apart in the scorching, sweet tangle of lips and teeth. With one hand, he digs his fingers into my hair. The other splays across my lower back, his grip on me almost convulsive, urging me up and closer. I’m in stasis. I’m completely startled by the kiss, unable to respond. I send a desperate message to my brain. Move. Pull back. Push him away. But the urgent glide of his hand down my spine to cup my ass melts my thoughts to liquid and they swim in my head. I can’t pull back, and all hope of resistance dissolves when he presses his thumb to my chin, prying me open. He stalks my tongue, hunts down a response, licking and sucking and groaning and growling. His hands tighten on me until I strain up to seek him, yanking his hair, pulling him even closer. “Dammit, Nix,” he mutters between kisses. His hand wanders down my neck and across my shoulder, and cups my breast, twisting the nipple through flimsy barriers of cotton and lace. He shoves up my skirt, pulling my legs wider, and pushes my panties aside, his fingers invading me. My body remembers this mad craving that claws out of my bones—that wants out. That wants him. Under his rough touch, my body blooms and my hips rock. “That’s it,” he says, taking my earlobe between his lips. My head falls back and I moan. It’s so damn good. His touch awakens me. His hands, his kisses bring me to life. It feels like I’m taking my first deep breath since we were last together, and it fills my lungs, seeps into my pores. “I missed you,” he says, sucking my lips and kissing the corners, quick, hungry. “I’m sorry. Baby, I—” “Stop talking.” I reach between us to loosen his belt, catching his zipper and dragging it down, dragging him out. “Shut up.”


Prepare yourself for a WILD ride!  This is an epic series about the journey of two characters from different backgrounds, who are meant to be together.

Lennix is true to her American Indian ancestry.  Her mother taught her right about the culture and appreciation for their customs.  Preserving the sacred land and the water supply of the Apache nation is part of that.  As she stands up to those who will steal and defile their land, she meets the man that will affect the rest of her life.  Her passion for honesty and doing the right thing will clash with the man who has stolen her heart.

To Maxim, standing up for himself against his father is norm.  Being part of this influential family does not mean he supports his father's greed and underhanded methods.  Standing up for the American Indian community protecting their land from the new pipeland comes naturally as he rushes to save a young woman at the heart of it.  Their few hours together will leave an undeniable impact on his life.  Little did he know this woman would affect him for the rest of his life.

Intriguing and emotional, this first book of the duet stole my heart.  This is not only a love story, it is the story of what activism and being passionate for a cause bigger than the needs of two people.  The story is easy to read and will bewitch you.  Do not miss this duet!

I am voluntarily reviewing this book.  Thanks to the author for sharing a copy with me.

The audiobook also includes the After Dark novella The Engagement Gift performed by Teddy Hamilton and Elena Wolfe and available in audio for the first time!
 
 
   
Blurb: Top three reasons why sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea...
1. She’s my fiercest rival. 2. She’s also my fiery ex. 3. We’re going up against each other in a stiff competition to win the hottest new client on the market.
And yet, I’d like to be up against the wall in a stiff competition to get her to call out my name.
Time to double down on my resistance to her tough-as-nails, take-no-prisoners, sexy-as-sin attitude. The same attitude I find irresistible.
That’s a big problem, because in this race to nab the client, I run into Haven in the hotel, on the beach, in the guest quarters late at night.
Hate sex would be a terrible idea.
Except, it’s the complete opposite, and now we can’t keep our hands off each other.
Trouble is, I’m not so sure it’s hate I’m feeling anymore.
And that’s the biggest reason sleeping with the enemy you’re falling for is a bad idea -- my job literally depends on never letting her into my heart.
   
Excerpt: Her hand slides down my back, and it feels reverent. Her touch does so many things to me. It turns me on, it riles me up, and it sends me soaring. And now, it makes my heart thunder like a wild animal in my chest. One that wants to be with her, next to her, beside her.
“More,” I whisper. “Give me more of your kisses.”
“Take them all,” she tells me.
I am ravenous for her. I don’t know if I will ever be sated.
Not with her scent in my head, her body curled around me, and her kisses on my lips and in my soul.
We might have come in here for one final hurrah, but as we kiss like we can’t ever get enough, this doesn’t feel like the last time for either of us. It doesn’t seem like the end run down the slopes.
I should keep that thought to myself. But when I’m with her, when she’s close like this, I can’t think rationally. It’s too hard to lie or to pretend like she’s the enemy.
My rival, yes.
The competition, yes.
But she’s also the woman I can’t quit.
The woman I don’t want to quit.
   


Haven and Josh were lovers only a year ago.  Then, something happened and now they are rivals and the banter is brutal.  As Josh sees it, this hate/love relationship is something he can handle with his cocky attitude and survive going deeper into his emotions.  Haven, on the other hand, uses her bristled exterior to hide the deep emotions and hurt loving and leaving Josh have created.

Funny and very entertaining, these two characters cannot help being in competition no matter what.  It is their latest bet that both separates them and draws them together as they both pursue an up and coming tennis athlete to sign with one of their agencies.

Let's just say it... the chemistry and sexual tension drives these two to an inevitable end!  How they get there and how they deal with it is a gem.

I am voluntarily reviewing this book.  Thanks to the author for sharing a copy with me.

Tangled Up in Christmas by Lisa Renee Jones is not to be missed! GRAB YOUR COPY NOW!



I might be a country girl from the same small town of Sweetwater, Texas, as horse wrangler Roarke Frost, the girl next door who knows him like few know him, but I didn't know enough to save my heart.

He's the reason why I left Sweetwater behind.

But now fate proves she loves a wicked twist and sends me back to Sweetwater to pull together a Christmas festival—and I run smack into the man again, quite literally. His body is pressed to mine, his hands on my arms, and I'm melting like chocolate in the sizzling Texas sunshine. And I run.

I know it’s not exactly respectable, but it works, just not for long. No matter how much I try to get tangled up in Christmas, I end up tangled up in Roarke instead—and the man has me feeling the heat of our attraction and the warmth of our past friendship. He feels like Mr. Right, but history says he’s Mr. Wrong.

But if he wants a second chance, Roarke Frost is going to have to work for it. He’ll need to prove to me that this holiday is a season of new beginnings, the kind that last forever.

Get Your Copy Here:



Roarke was the love of her life.  Having been engaged to him and on the verge of marriage, Hannah could not think of anything that could go wrong.  Just then, a video of Roarke and a model (who was all over him!) showed up on her phone.  Needless to say, Hannah packed her bags and left Sweetwater, Texas hopefully never to come back.

A couple of years have passed and Hannah is now in Dallas and starting to make a new beginning with her career as a photographer and event organizer.  Maybe it was Fate but running straight into Roarke's chest at the airport was not her idea of fun.  Then, running into him a month later on her first big photographer assignment was totally unexpected.  Now, it turns out she has been booked to do a Christmas Festival in Sweetwater to benefit the Children's Hospital and guess who one of her bosses will be?  You are correct!  Roarke!!!

This love/hate/love journey is full of wit, emotions, and most of all romance!  This is one of those books you will not want to put down and will not want for the story to end.

RUIN (Slay #2) by Laurelin Paige Release - And NOT TO BE MISSED!

 
RUIN (Slay #2) by Laurelin Paige Release Date: October 29th
 
   
   
Blurb: With her heart literally in his hands, Celia will have to try and bargain with a devil.
Edward Fasbender is my captor.
Trapped on this island he owns everything on--including, it seems, me.
He told me he would break me, but I thought he meant in the bedroom. It turns out Edward is playing a completely different game.
And he won't stop until he's ruined me.
Slay Two: Ruin is the second book in the Slay Quartet. Slay One: Rivalry should be read first.
   
Excerpt: Yes, she was calculating and manipulative, and she was very spoiled about getting her way, but that was all surface. She was an onion. There were layers and layers underneath, parts of her that she held away. Parts she showed no one. For whatever reason, I’d caught sight of what she kept hidden, whether she’d meant for that to happen or not, I couldn’t be sure. Regardless, I was captivated. There was so much to see there, so much to take down. So much of her to know and own and destroy and redesign, and like an old habit, I couldn’t break away.
She was an addiction, and I wanted to feed on it. She wasn’t supposed to be like that.
She wasn’t supposed to want to bend to my whims. She wasn’t supposed to open up and give what I asked for. She wasn’t supposed to be so eager to take what I gave her. She certainly wasn’t supposed to see past my own curtain, wasn’t supposed to ask to see more.
I’m here for this, she’d said.
   
About the Author With millions of books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. She is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however.
When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or Letterkenny, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She's also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn't do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.
She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.


How would you feel if your new husband took you away to a Caribbean island he owns and then he tells you he plans to kill you for your money?  No way off the island.  No one on the island will believe you are in peril because they all adore your new husband and work for him.

This is how Celia's marriage to Edward started.  Why is he so set in killing her?  Is it only because she owns what she thinks is majority control of shares of her father's media company?  Is there more?

As they interact, there is attraction and hatred.  Something between them dark yet the unrelenting attraction is hard to be missed.  Knowing that Edward plans to keep her isolated on the island until she "breaks" is the only hope she has of staying alive long enough to figure out her escape.

OMG!!!!  This can only happen to Celia!  After all the games she has played with people's lives, this is Karma giving her its punishment.  Do not miss this series!

IF YOU SAY SO by Lani Lynn Vale. - Release



Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III and Francesca Leandra Solomon were meant to be. They were so in love that everybody prayed for what they had.
Everything was glorious. They would get married, have children and live a perfect life. She would be a doctor in the emergency room once she finished her doctorate, and he would be a badass Navy SEAL and save people for a living. 
But then Luca is deployed across the world, and per military regulations, Frankie isn’t allowed to follow.
They’ve overcome a lot in their short relationship, and they can overcome this, too. Two years was a piece of cake. She’d finish her schooling and wait for him. And when he finally returned home, they would marry.
But two months into Luca’s deployment, the unthinkable happens, and Frankie is left alone and heartbroken, knowing that she’ll have to face the rest of life without Luca at her side.
***
Fast forward two years, and Frankie is exactly where her fiancĂ©’s father left her, in a pit of despair that she has no hope of ever finding her way out of.
She lives life one second at a time, depressed and alone, hoping tomorrow won’t hurt like today.
She finds a job, moves, and hopes that the nightmares won’t swallow her whole.
But just as she thinks that she’s getting better, one of her nightmares walks through the doors of her ER, and that nightmare has a name.
Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III. In the flesh.
Also healthy and whole, and definitely no longer missing.
Sadly, it only takes her a half a second to realize that the man that left her isn’t the same man that returned.
The old one wanted her. The new one? Well, he’s definitely not interested anymore.

Luca and Frankie together shared a forever love.  Being a SEAL, he was given an assignment to go to war before they were able to marry.  It has been two years ... and everyone believes Luca is dead.  Frankie is waiting for him to come back, but every day with no news make her feel depressed that she will never see him again.

When news come that Luca's best friend Malachi has been found, she feels both elated and depressed.  Malachi was a dear friend but the fact that he was coming back while there were no news about Luca's fate was devastating.

Little by little Malachi and Frankie renew their friendship.  Suffering from amnesia, Malachi wonders why his clothes no longer fit and why he feels like an outsider.  Dealing with all the scars from the wounds his captors inflicted adds to his stress.  People cannot stop staring at him.  How can he adjust?

This is an emotional story about what life is about after surviving war and loss.  Frankie and Malachi share a bond of friendship that slowly but surely is changing into something more.  As Malachi reminds her more and more of Luca with his mannerisms, voice, and overall body, Frankie wonders if she is transferring her memories of Luca unto his friend.  Or is Malachi just not himself?

Insatiable, an all-new irresistible friends to lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow is coming November 28th and we have the gorgeous cover!

Insatiable - CR banner

After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.

Insatiable AMAZON
I didn’t mean to see him naked--it was an accident.
It had to be, right?
Because Noah McCormick and I have never been anything more than friends. In all the years I’ve known him, he’s never once laid a finger on me. And even though he was a cute lifeguard at 16 and a hotter-than-hell sheriff’s deputy at 34, he's always been that protective guy I could trust to keep his hands to himself. I never wanted to mess with that.
Until I walked in on him getting out of the shower and saw his hard, muscular body totally bare and dripping wet. At that moment I never wanted to mess with anything so badly in my entire life.
I should have covered my eyes. Said I was sorry. At the very least, I could have handed him a towel.
After all, I was only in town for a few days, and he was just doing me a favor by escorting me to my sister’s wedding. It wasn’t a real date.
But I didn’t apologize. And he didn’t cover up.
(Talk about a hot mess.)
After all those years of being just friends, suddenly we’re insatiable.
He’s made it clear he’s not interested in romance. Which is fine with me because
I’ve got a plane ticket back to my real life at the end of the week.
It’s all in fun...or is it?
