Sometimes love is better the second time around.

Mia Gibbs spent her marriage putting her husband’s needs before her own. And now, after a painful divorce, she’s building a new life for herself and her two daughters back home at Firefly Lake. The last thing she needs is a man to complicate things. But former bad boy turned friend Nick McGuire has turned everything upside down.

Attorney Nick McGuire wasn’t meant to be a family man. His career has always been his focus, and after taking time out to help his mother, he’s ready to get back to the city…until Mia and her daughters arrive at Firefly Lake. Mia is beautiful and intriguing, and it doesn’t take long to realize being “just friends” will never be enough. As the summer nights turn colder, Nick will have to choose between the life he’s always wanted…and the woman he can’t live without.

Excerpt:

“I want this.” Mia lifted her face to his as a cloud scudded across the moon. “I want you.”
Even if it could only be for tonight, she was Mia, not a mom, not a sister, and not a wife who’d been tossed aside for someone younger and curvier. For this one moment, she didn’t have any responsibilities except what she wanted and needed.
I want you, too.” Nick took her hand and led her toward the car. “A part of me has wanted you since I was fifteen and you hung out at the town beach in that green bikini with the white flowers.”
Her heart lurched. He’d noticed her enough to remember the bikini she’d hidden from her mom. The one she’d bought because she’d heard Nick say he liked green. “You were always with the guys by the life guard station.” Everything about him was a lot sexy and a little bit dangerous.
“I wanted to see you.” His smile was forced, like the admission cost him more than he wanted her to know.
Mia curved her cold hand into his warm one. She’d guessed she’d hurt him the one time they’d gone out, but until tonight she hadn’t understood how much. She couldn’t regret the past, and she couldn’t predict the future, but she could do something about the present. “I want to be with you. Even though we’re not teenagers anymore and I don’t have that green bikini.
Nick’s gaze skimmed her body from head to toe and lingered at her breasts. Then he gave her a grin that was pure bad boy. “I was always a lot more interested in what was underneath that bikini anyway.”
He opened the passenger door for her to slide in.
She looked at him from under her lashes and flirted like she’d wanted to do all those years ago but had been too shy. “You were, were you?”
“Oh yeah.” He shut the car door and, in the sudden silence, panic rolled over her again. Except, there was excitement too…

For two FBI agents with a past, love becomes a matter of life and death in the new Hidden Sins novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert.
Maggie Gaines used to be an FBI agent—top of her class and one of the bright, up-and-coming stars—until she spectacularly fell apart during her first high-profile case. That was eight years ago. Now she’s a ranger at Glacier National Park, and she’s found some measure of peace. But when the body of a murdered woman is discovered, she must finally put the past behind her and work with the one man she thought she’d never see again.
For months, Vic Sutherland has been hunting a killer who’s been targeting unsuspecting hikers in national parks—and now the predator has come to Glacier. Vic knows the case will bring him face-to-face with his former partner, yet nothing can prepare him for seeing Maggie again after all these years, or for the memories of passion it stirs in both of them.
As the investigation brings them closer together—and closer to the killer—Maggie and Vic fear they have only each other to trust. But even that might not be enough to make it out of Glacier alive.

The Hunting Grounds Excerpt
Copyright © 2017 Katee Robert

Vic thought he was prepared. He wasn’t the type of man to spend too much effort worrying about what could possibly happen—it made more sense to deal with what did happen. He knew seeing Maggie again after all this time would be a shock, but they’d been partners for twelve months at best. There was no reason to think he couldn’t roll with this development the same way he rolled with every other.
Then he arrived at Goat Haunt ranger station. He followed Wyatt out of the chopper, using a hand to shield his face from the wind the blades created. The ranger station was set against Upper Waterton Lake, and with the mountains in the background, it could have been a scene out of a painting.
All of that paled in comparison to Maggie.
She looked good. Better than good. During her time as his partner, she’d been too thin, running on too little sleep and too much coffee, and her health had suffered as a result. Obviously being a park ranger agreed with her. The unfortunate uniform did nothing to hide how her curves had filled out, her body honed from the many hours of hauling around a pack similar to the one he now carried. Her hair was longer, too, the dark locks pulled back into a braid that hit just past her shoulders.
But she was still Maggie.
Even in the bright sunlight, he could see the way her dark eyes flashed as her shock wore off. And her nose, the only feature of hers that could never be termed pretty, was the same—long and slightly crooked from where it’d been broken in the FBI academy.
Maggie shook off her paralysis faster than he did. She frowned. “What are you doing here, Vic?”
“Agent Sutherland’s here for the murder.” Wyatt stepped forward, breaking what remained of the spell cast between them.
Rationally, Vic knew it had lasted seconds at most, but it felt like a small eternity. He struggled to put the past in the appropriate box to deal with when they weren’t on a case. When we aren’t on a case, I’ll leave . . . He shut the thought down. He had a duty to the victims, and letting himself get distracted by Maggie wasn’t going to find the unsub.
Even if Maggie was a bright, shining star in the midst of darkness.
He moved closer and slid off his pack. “Where’s the best place to talk?”
For a second, it looked like Maggie would pepper him with more questions, but she finally nodded. “This way.”

Praise for The Hidden Sins Series

“…a captivating read, made all the more rewarding when good triumphs.” —Washington Post

“Robert shows off her impressive versatility in this fast-paced and inventive new Hidden Sins series. The small-town setting is a masterful blend of quaint and oppressive, which ratchets the menace and thrill factor.

With plenty of twists and betrayals, this is a book that is sure to earn Robert a wealth of new fans.” —RT Book Reviews

A Well Placed Wish (Fantastical Daddy Doms)

A Well Placed Wish~ Release Date July 21

Well placed wish4

By Allysa Hart
Buy Link: A WELL PLACED WISH

Sales Blurb:
I lost everything, was shipped off to live with an aunt I barely knew, and was put to work cleaning her dilapidated antique shop.
And then, I met Callum.
Or should I say I released him?
I was a socialite with a strong sense of entitlement and a lot of anger.
He was a Dominant genie with a hard body and an even harder hand.
It could never work.
Could it?
About Allysa Hart

I am a full-time mom to a sassy, strong-willed, loveable little girl. Okay, so she is all me. I am on the wrong side of 30, and I have been married to my best friend for over eight years. Like most couples, we have our ups and downs, but I could not imagine doing life with anyone else by my side. We are Southern California transplants, currently residing in a very rural part of the east coast. I have two crazy dogs that I adore, even though they drive me out of my ever-loving mind, most days.
I have recently rediscovered my love of words and decided to become a writer. My first story is my heart and soul, and it reaches into the depths of all that is me. I also create covers, promos, and logos for authors. I have met some amazing friends on this journey that I now happily call family. Without my family members, whether biological or chosen, I would not be half the person I am today. Their constant love and support keep me afloat.

“You, little girl, need a Daddy.” Callum’s voice echoed.
“Yeah? Are you applying for the position?” I shot back with all of the sass I had.
Approaching me, he took my wrists in a tight hold, backed me against the wall and pinned my hands above my head. “Consider me the only applicant, because no one touches what’s mine. And you are most definitely mine.”
With one hand holding me still he used the other to lift up my night shirt and expose my breasts. I took in a sharp breath as his thumb zeroed in on my nipple and teased. His eyes stayed trained on mine as he switched to the other breast, giving it the same attention. My eyes rolled to the back of my head, my breathing labored. Luckily, his hold stayed fast because when his gentle teasing turned to sharp pinches, my knees buckled.
His lips found my neck and he chuckled sending vibrations straight to my pussy. “My girl likes it rough, huh?”
I whimpered in need.
“Don’t cry, baby. Daddy is going to put out that little fire. Be a good girl and keep your hands where I put them.”
Nodding, I bit my lip as his eyes darkened.
“The correct answer is always, ‘yes, Sir.’”

Copy of WPWteasers2
“Well I’m gonna need to teach you a lesson if you think you can talk to me like that.”
His sudden seriousness shocked the hell out of me. “But it’s my birthday!”
“Oh, I know what day it is.”
“I’m supposed to get to be the queen on my birthday.” I pouted.
Lifting my chin with his finger, he winked. “You are always my princess, but I am the King and that is the way it will always be.”
“Do I at least get a crown?” I asked with the most pitiful look I could muster.
Callum snapped his fingers and a stunning tiara appeared in his hand. The stones sparkled, their reflections sending shiny little dots all over the room. My heart filled with excitement, but I did my best to hide it with a bored sigh. “I guess that will do.”
As he placed the fragile jewelry atop my head, he smiled and rolled his eyes “You, little girl, are in for one hell of a wake up call tonight. I hope you aren’t planning on sitting tomorrow,” he growled for only me to hear.

Copy of WPWteasers4
“It’s still crazy to me that you even exist. There’s no such thing as magic. You are a myth, a storybook character.” I don’t know if I was trying to convince him or me at that point.
He quirked a brow. “I don’t believe storybook characters have the capability of paddling your backside.”
The veiled threat made me giggle. “I don’t deserve a spanking, so you can’t give me one.”
“Oh, little sprite. You have much to learn. You always deserve one. Don’t you know, good girls get spankings too?”
Looking up at him, I caught the glint in his deep purple eyes. The spanking had definitely excited me, but I would never admit it. It was too embarrassing. His unyielding power, coupled with the feeling of helplessness and his hand so close to my sex had made me crazy with arousal. Even now, just the memory of the experience made me wet.
“I see you like that idea. Your little pussy wept for me when I bound you to the tree. You can not hide from Daddy in that position.”

Copy of WPWteasers5
I want you to let yourself go for me tonight. I want you to relax and allow me to take charge. I want you to feel the way that I command your body here, here, and here.” He touched my forehead, chest, and unapologetically snaked his hand beneath my skirt fluttering his fingers against the gusset of my soaked panties. The touch was so light it could have almost gone unnoticed, however I was acutely aware of everything he did. “Do you trust me?”
“WIth everything that I am, Sir.”
“Good girl. It’s time for your spanking.”
Tugging my arm slightly, he pulled me down across his lap. Lap? I wrenched backwards to see what was happening. Sure enough, the cloud at his waist was gone. In its place was all man. Hips to feet he was all there. His chest was bare as always, but his pants were light washed jeans. He couldn’t look any sexier. I looked up at his face and he winked.
“I-is it all there?” I questioned as I timidly gestured to where his cock should be.
He gave a sad smile and shook his head. “Some things even genie’s can’t do, but I will make sure you do not miss it, I promise.”
Copy of WPWteasers7
His lips found my neck and he chuckled sending vibrations straight to my pussy. “My girl likes it rough, huh?”
I whimpered in need.
“Don’t cry, baby. Daddy is going to put out that little fire. Be a good girl and keep your hands where I put them.”
Nodding, I bit my lip as his eyes darkened.
“The correct answer is always, ‘yes, Sir.’”
His edict sent another shiver through my body. “Yes, Sir.” I whispered right before he captured my lips in a toe curling kiss. With his hands working my breasts and his lips laying claim to my mouth, all I could do was enjoy the ride. Wrapping my arms around his neck, I pulled him in, closer. I wanted to feel him against me, all of him. He released my mouth and breasts long enough to pull my shirt over my head and carry me to the bed. As soon as I was on my back, my arms were secured above my head again, only this time by a soft fabric. Never had a man taken charge of my body like this, I wouldn’t have allowed it, but Callum didn’t ask, he seized what he considered his, and he conquered it without a second thought.
Copy of WPWteasers8
Words escaped me, and I felt the need to look away. As soon as I did, the first smack fell on my vulnerable bottom before he rubbed the sting away. Moaning, I pressed my bottom into his hand, silently begging for more. He did not disappoint, repeating the pattern over and over. Spank, caress, spank, caress, back and forth, up and down. The pressure in my core built just as the caresses changed to him exploring my sex with his fingers. I whimpered in need as I pressed against him, trying to get more.
“Not yet, naughty girl.” His fingers disappeared and the spanking continued. I was on fire inside and out, my bottom burning from crest to sit spots. Again his fingers renewed their exploration, this time dragging the moisture backwards toward my most secret area. Ass play had always been off limits, but with the way my body sang for him, I was putty in his hands. He massaged my ring, bringing more and more moisture to my bottom hole. Without warning, he pressed his finger to the entrance. Instinctively, I tensed and tried to get away. Clicking his tongue he laid some intense smacks to the backs of my thighs, making me cry out.
“You don’t get to close yourself off to me. All that you are, is mine and mine alone.”
Copy of WPWteasers3
“You want more sweet girl?” he questioned.
“Oh yes please, Sir. Lots more.”
“Your wish is my command.”
I sat up in a panic. Sweat covered me from head to toe and my breathing was erratic. It was a panic attack. Looking around, I hoped to see I was still in Callum’s room. Hearing him say that phrase had frightened me into thinking I had accidentally spoken the forbidden words. Callum materialized beside her.
“What happened, little sprite? I could feel your angst.”
I jumped into his arms, needing to feel that he was really still there. “I had a nightmare. Well it didn’t start as one. It was a nice dream but then you said ‘your wish is my command’ and it woke me up. I was scared I screwed up. I was scared you would be gone.” The last words came out choked and tears followed. I hadn’t cried since the first day at the hospital and I was so tired of being strong.
He held me in his arms as he rocked back and forth. The motion and the steady beat of his heart had a calming affect unrivaled by anything or anyone. “I’m here, little sprite. It was only a dream. I’m not going anywhere. Even if you did make the third wish, I would still be here. You know what my wish is?” he asked. I did know, but I stayed silent. “I wish you would trust me.”
Copy of WPWteasers9
“Before you go and I leave you to your work, is there something you would like to say to me?”
Knowing exactly what he was looking for, I lowered my eyes and nodded. “I’m sorry for my behavior and my language. I will be nicer, I promise.”
“And if you do not?”
“I will be punished again?” I guessed with a gulp.
He smiled, “Thank you, that is correct. You are a good girl and as much as I enjoyed seeing your little bottom wiggle under my hand. I would much rather bring you pleasure than pain. I will return to my chambers now. You know what to do if you need me.”
With that, he was gone.

Jordan Steele’s life began when he was ten. When he was taken from his parents and a house that was
never a home. When he met his brothers, the other lost and abandoned boys in his group home. When he
learned what friendship and family and love looked like.
Now he’s made good, touring the world with the band he and his brothers formed in that crowded group
home. No one but his found family really knows the man under the fame and fortune, the scars he hides
behind the rockstar lifestyle. Until he sees her through the windows of the National Ballet, dancing, and
suddenly the world doesn’t seem so dark.
Aleksandra Artemov ticks all the ballet boxes. Father a legendary Kirov dancer. Check. Prepping since
birth for classical ballet. Check. Compulsive control over the food she eats. Check. Principal dancer at The
National Ballet of Canada. Check. But what she craves is freedom.
She craves Jordan.
Everything about him should terrify her. His size, his tattoos, his edge. But he doesn’t. He stirs her very
soul. Jordan has nothing but himself to offer her, and he’s never been good enough for anyone. Can he
figure out how to face his own demons before he loses his light for good?

JORDAN RECLAIMED Excerpt
Copyright © 2017 Scarlett Cole
“I think it would be fair to say that I haven’t had a welcome home like that before either,” Jordan said. He
pressed his lips to her forehead and wrapped his arms around her shoulders.
A part of her knew she should be embarrassed by the way Jordan manhandled her on the street.
Lord knew that if her father had seen it, he would be in a state of apoplexy. But she didn’t have it in her to
care. It was the most perfect reunion. She’d worn her favorite cream wool dress, cinched with a brown
leather belt, but underneath it she was wearing new underwear from Victoria’s Secret in the hope that he
might take her back to his place later. It was forward, she knew, but the last nine days of talking to the
deeply thoughtful, and unintentionally sullen, man who currently had his body pressed up against hers had
her all wound up.
Jordan’s brow furrowed as he studied her, like he was checking her over for injury.
“Do you ever really smile?” she asked. “Because I think I saw the glimmer of a smile when we
went on our first date.”
“I do occasionally,” he replied gruffly
“If I kiss you again, will you smile for me?”
Jordan leaned forward and placed his lips right next to her ear. “If you kiss me again, I might just
end up taking you standing up against this pillar. So I strongly suggest you take that pretty little ass of
yours inside before I change my mind and do it anyway.”
Lexi shivered as his breath whispered across her skin and his words made her ache in the places
that longed for his touch.
He reached for her hand and carefully peeled off her glove. Silently, he folded it and tucked it into
her pocket. Then he repeated the process with her other hand.

She swallowed as he took her hand, scrambling to regain her control. They needed small talk,
something less . . . flammable. “Are you looking forward to going inside?” she asked. It had been years
since she’d visited the AGO, and when he’d asked her where she’d like to go, it was the first place she’d
thought of.
“Yeah, I am,” he said, leading her in through the double doors. He leaned his head toward her
again. “I’m really hoping that looking at stuffy old paintings and relics will help kill the boner you just
gave me.”
Praise for JORDAN RECLAIMED…
“I thought that nothing could compete with the love I had for “The Strongest Steel” written by this author
but I was so wrong! “Jordan Reclaimed” is just as amazing and magical!” —Elena’s Book Blog
“And as with any other Scarlett Cole story, she manages to incorporate humor and good lord the sex scenes
are hot enough to melt your kindle. The woman knows how to pull everything together so perfectly.
Heartache, Love, Sexy Times, and Laughter, what more do you need?” —Tanya (I ❤ Books)
“Once again Scarlett Cole’s beautiful and poignant writing has seduced my mind and filled my heart with a
wide range of emotions. This book is best savored slowly. The intriguing and well-paced plot kept me on
my toes and the interesting and multi-layered characters made me fall madly and deeply in love with
them.” —Selma (Goodreads)

About Scarlett Cole

The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada were I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.

I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I’m getting the chance to follow that dream.

HER SPY TO HAVE Excerpt
Copyright © 2016 Paula Altenburg

The rain continued to pour. The inside of the van became the entire world, and he filled every inch of it. She eased her fingers from beneath his touch.
He hadn’t taken his eyes off her.
“You’ve been avoiding me,” he said.
“And you’ve let me.”
“No,” he corrected her. “I’ve been giving you space. But something happened today. I’d like to know what it was.”
Isabelle’s mouth went dry, her heart hammering so loud she was certain he must hear it over the steady drumming of the rain. She’d made her decision. Now she had to live with it. She hadn’t told her father that she believed CSIS was searching for him. She wasn’t telling Garrett anything more than she already had, either. She didn’t want to choose sides between them.
She turned her face away and looked at the streaming driver’s side window so she wouldn’t have to meet his eyes and read the disappointment in them. When she spoke, she was as honest with him as she could be. “I have nothing to tell you.”
He cupped her chin in firm fingers and forced her to look at him. His expression was grave, but he’d shut down his thoughts so she couldn’t read them. The creases around his mouth, so evident when he smiled, had smoothed. He dropped a light kiss on her lips.
“I guess this is it, then,” he said.
She swallowed hard against the painful lump in her throat. She’d known from the beginning there could never be anything of significance between them. She hadn’t expected to fall in love with him.
The rain slowed, then stopped altogether. The sun burst through a break in the clouds. Regret burned at the backs of her eyes. “I wish things could have been different.”
He let go of her and settled back in the passenger seat, six feet of rugged male indifference wrapped in a white Henley shirt and wheat-colored Dockers.
“Put your right foot on the brake, start the engine, and slide the gearshift into drive,” he said. “If you cut the wheels hard to the left, you should be able to pull back onto the road with no problem at all. Stay clear of the shoulder. It’ll be soft.”
Slowly, Isabelle maneuvered the van onto the dirt road. Muddy water from the puddles sprayed off the tires as she stepped on the accelerator. A minute later, they were on pavement again.
“For the record,” Garrett said, staring straight ahead, “I wish things could have been different, too.”

About Paula Altenburg

paula_375x564
Multi-published author Paula Altenburg grew up in rural Nova Scotia knowing that at some point in her life she was likely to be a fiction writer. Swapping Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey books with her father guaranteed she wasn’t going to be the next Jane Austen, much to the dismay of her English teacher mother. A degree in Social Anthropology from the University of King’s College and Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, confirmed that writing was the most logical career path for her.

She’s worked in the Aerospace and Defense industry, which surprises everyone who knows her. She writes because she can’t keep a secret, and getting to pass everything off as fiction makes a good compromise. Happily married, with two terrific sons, she continues to live in rural Nova Scotia but makes a point of traveling as much as she can.
