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)

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.

Claim & Protect: The Haven Brotherhood #3

Claim & Protect (The Haven Brotherhood) by [Morgan, Rhenna] Claim & Protect by Rhenna Morgan

My rating:

Publisher: Carina Press

Publication Date: Jun 12, 2017

Print Length: 416 pages


In the event that you haven’t begun to peruse one of Rhenna Morgan’s titles in her fresh off the press new saga The Haven Brotherhood, you ought to before June 12, 2017. Since the following portion is ablaze… goodness, the sparks between Trevor and Natalie is all that as well.

Natalie lived the high life. Hitched and with one youngster, a mother who reveres her and her son. In any case, all that changed with a just one slap in the face. Presently she’s just keen on making a new beginning. But her ex-declines to release the past.

Trevor Raines put stock in the Haven Brotherhood maxim. “Live hard, f*ck harder and take after just their own particular principles”. In any case, don’t miss the point, Trevor and his sibling don’t twist the standards just to help themselves. Nope, they utilize it to help other people in need.

Trevor’s fascination for Natalie takes him into her reality. Trevor will successfully help Natalie and her child from any further mischief from her ex.

Claim and Protects fits ideal in with alternate titles in this series. The Haven Brotherhood I could see myself perusing more than once. Furthermore, since this three-book arrangement is over. I can hardly wait to read what Rhenna Morgan write about next.

I would prescribe this book to all peruse, who like the contemporary sentiment, and solid plotline and the set of characters that makes The Haven Brotherhood an unquestionable requirement read.

Tori Cox, a talented and sought-after musician, heads back to her roots to a small southwest town in Arizona as she flees an abusive relationship. When she arrives she witnesses the execution of a federal agent by the head of the Jimenez Cartel. The drug cartel kingpin orders his men to kill Tori before she can testify.

He sets out to protect her, but soon protecting her isn’t enough. The fire between them makes him want her in a way that he’s never wanted another woman, despite his wounded heart.

Death

Diego Montego Jimenez will do everything in his power to kill Tori, the young American woman, who threatens his business and family. No one lives to testify against the Jimenez Cartel.

Hidden Prey written by Cheyenne McCray is book #1 in her Deadly Intent series. Based on a thrilling tale of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and redemption. Tori was coming home after escaping from a relationship based on control. But, escape for Tori comes with a price. After witnessing a murder of which she would later learn of a Federal agent. Tori must go into hiding to stay alive.

Landon has his own cross to bear when he learns that the witness he is to protect is the sister of a man worked for the same cartel out to silence her.

The suspense of the storytelling couldn’t touch the burning attraction that Landon ignites in Tori. I would recommend this story to any reader who likes suspense with a well-scripted plot-line.

He Will Always Bear the Scars

Undercover cop Clay Navarro left the Sultans biker gang a changed man. Its ringleaders may be awaiting trial, but he wears the memory of every brutal act he was forced to commit tattooed across his skin. He doesn’t have space in his messed-up life for anything gentle—not now, maybe not ever.

Dr. Georgette Hadley is drawn to the damaged stranger’s pain, intimidated but intrigued by the warmth that lies beneath Clay’s frightening exterior. But when the Sultans return looking for revenge, she finds herself drawn into the dirty underbelly of a life forged in violence…that not even her touch may be able to heal.

By Her Touch was an okay read. The character was well developed to put that you could see what drove them. However, the chemistry between Clay and Georgette was non-existing. The story dragged on way too long. I figured out who betrayed Clay to the Sultans at the beginning. So, when the big reveal happened it was meh.
This would be the first title I ever read by this author and so I can’t rightfully say if this was one of her best or not. I can say that this story could be read as a stand along and that this book would be suited towards readers who likes mystery along with light-hearted romance.

No one charters the depths of passion on the high seas like New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair

DESIRE RUNS DEEP

Somewhere off the coast of Greece, a king’s ransom in gold, emeralds, and silver coins lies waiting at the bottom of the sea. Finding this ancient treasure would be a dream come true for marine archeologist Calista West. But that’s not why she’s here. She didn’t climb aboard Jonah Cutter’s magnificent yacht seeking fortune or fame. She’s come for revenge—against the sexiest, most seductive, modern-day pirate she’s ever encountered…

Like his famous half-brothers, Jonah is a master of salvaging ships—and driving women mad with his movie-star looks and raw animal magnetism. Tall, dark, and devastating, he manages to make Callie forget her mission. Every moment they share under the hot Mediterranean sun is an erotically-charged adventure neither can resist. But when Callie discovers what he’s really after—the lost city of Atlantis—is it too late to change the course of her heart…or go all in with the lover of her dreams?

Stormchaser is book #4 in Cherry Adair’s Cutter Cay series. Since this will be my first book in this series. I did feel lost coming in the middle of this series. But after reading this book, I feel that I must read the other titles in this series. To get a better understanding on the Cutter crew.

I can say I have read other books by Cherry Adair and she never lost her touch. She still captivated readers by the great plots. However, lost her way a bit on the character development. But, by the middle of the story, she finds her stride.

Stormchaser an action-packed adventure, and a lost city wanting to be explored.

Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.

Jane isn’t entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn’t she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if Prince—or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire—maybe do exist.

Except Brock Wellington isn’t anyone’s dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk—even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it’s karmic retribution that he’s tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can’t have. But while they can’t have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . ..

Move over Cinderella. There is a new girl in need of her fairy Prince. That person is Jane. Yes, her name is plain her job of cleaning homes and business is even plain. But Jane doesn’t let that stop her from taking care of her two older sisters.

Her father had her promise to make sure that the family stays together. Putting a lot of pressure on Jane to take care of her two spoiled rotten sisters. Mind you, they’re both successful attorneys. However, they both like to live above their means which leaves Jane in the whole to pay their debts.

Until one day she meets her Prince. Or in this case businessman Brock Wellington. Brock has his own issues. With the major issue being. He has a hard time saying “No”. It might be easy for you or me to say no. But the last time Brock said no was to his father. Then his father and mother both died in a plane crash. When he almost loses his grandfather, he is deftly afraid to deny his grandfather anything.

If you need to relieve stress or just need to get away from it all. The Bachelor Auction would have you laughing in no time.
