    MYRTLE

    I’m a just an erotic woman who likes control.

    And edgy sex.

    And hard men.

    At the same time.

    So starting an outreach class at the TDH community center to teach other women how to put the dom in dominatrix was inevitable. Even if I was only doing it to use my boss, Pierce, as my submissive example and pay him back for humiliating me in front of the whole world last summer.

    PIERCE

    I regret what I did to Myrtle. She’s the best assistant I’ve ever had and I’ll play along—for now—because I want to make things right. But… come on. Me? A submissive? Ha. Myrtle Rothschild might have the upper hand at the moment… but I’m bringing my A-game. I’m gonna take back control.

    She can wear her hot, thigh-high latex boots. She can crack that whip all she wants. Hell, I’ll even let her leave marks.

    But I’m about to school Ms. Rothschild in the art of who’s the boss.

    And she’s about to get Pierce-d.

    MYRTLE

    “Knock, knock?”

    I look up from my computer and see Pierce, standing in the doorway of my office.

    “Can I come in?” he asks.

    “You’re the boss,” I huff.

    He smiles. Tightly. Like he’s unsure how to proceed.

    It’s just all so different.

    “Uh… so how’s things?’

    “Things?” I ask, raising one perfect eyebrow. “Do you have a specific example of said things?”

    “Well, no,” he says, coming inside to take a seat in front of my desk. “Nothing specific. Just… wondering if you have time for a special project.”

    We both look at my desk. Which doesn’t have a single file on it. Not even one sheet of paper. My Post-Its pad is still crisp and every pencil in my little pencil can is sharp. I think it’s pretty obvious that I do nothing in here all day.

    But I’m still angry at him. So if he thinks I’m gonna be the first to admit I don’t actually have a job to do and I’m just wasting corporate money, he’s mistaken.

    “I’m pretty busy,” I say.

    “Yeah,” he says, sighing. “I know. And I don’t want to take advantage or anything, but I could use your help.”

    I have my reading glasses on, so I do that head-tilt thing where you look down your nose at someone. “With what?”

    He looks around. Plucks a pencil out of the pencil jar. Taps it to his head as he thinks.

    He doesn’t have a project for me. He just wanted to come in here and feel me out.

    We both know this.

    But then he gets an idea. I swear I can see the little light bulb go off in his head. “The Halloween party.”

    “What about it?”

    “We… need… well…”

    “Pierce?”

    “What?”

    “You don’t have a project for me. And I don’t even have a job here.”

    “Of course you do! You’re the VP—”

    “Of social media, I know. The little plaque outside my office says so. But we both know there’s no social media department. Not to mention, I’m not even on social media and have no idea how it even works.”

    “You don’t have socials? How did I not know that?”

    “Well, you did think I was the Sexpert. So I’m just going to assume you don’t actually know anything about me.”

    “How can you still be pissed at me? It’s been months! I gave you a promotion, and an office, and—”

    “Again,” I say, putting up a hand to cut him off, “I do realize all that. And once again, it’s all meaningless. You don’t even know what a social media department does.”

    “It’s not meaningless.” He tugs on his suit coat. “And I’m well-versed in socials. I was Snapchatting just last night.”

    “With who?”

    “Uh…” He looks over his shoulder, like he needs a second to think, then says, “Valerie. She’s my chat friend now.”

    “You know I can tell when you lie, right? Your left eye does this little wink thing every time.”

    He huffs, then leans forward in his chair. “How long will you continue to do this?”

    “Do what?”

    “Punish me.”

    I laugh. Stop. Then laugh again. It’s a little bit of a guffaw with a healthy dose of maniacal thrown in for good measure. “This is not me trying to punish you, Pierce. This is me biding my time.”

    He lifts up one eyebrow. “Biding your time until… what?”

    “Until I have the perfect diabolical plan to pay you back.”

    He sits back in his chair, breathes deep. “So that’s what you need? Payback?”

    “I was publicly humiliated. A woman doesn’t just get over it, Pierce.”

    He winces when I snarl his name. “You hate me.”

    “People look at me funny now, you do realize that?”

    “Look at you funny how?”

    “Like I’m hiding some secret sexual fetish side.”

    “Aren’t you?”

    “What do you want?”

    “I mean, you do come off as… kind of a…”

    “A what?”

    “You know. Like you’re into the whole Red Room spanking thing, right?”

    “Anastasia Steele? You’re comparing me to Anastasia Steele? Please.”

    “Well, you wear those tight pencil skirts… and those sexy secretary glasses. Plus, I know you read that smut in here. You don’t even use an eReader. Everyone can see the covers. I used to have little Christian Grey fantasies when you used to look at me. Before… ya know, you decided to hate me.”

    I laugh. And it’s not even maniacal. It’s real.

    “Why is that funny?”

    “My dearest Pierce,” I say, still chuckling, “you are no Christian Grey. If anyone is Mr. Grey in this relationship, it’s me.”

    Published by: Soul Mate Publishing

    Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

    Billionaire Aidan Cross longs to escape his life of celebrity and become a regular guy, if only for a brief time. His chance comes when his yacht breaks down near quaint Cypress Key, Florida—the site of his planned five-star golf resort. The golf resort no one in town wants.

    Casey Stuart has given up her dream of escaping to the big city. She refuses to desert her uncle, even when he hires the new stranger in town to replace her at their golf course. Casey vows to steer clear of the stranger called Aidan and the danger their inescapable chemistry provokes. Aidan’s stay is temporary, and falling for him promises only heartbreak.

    When Casey discovers Cypress Key’s mayor is making underhanded business deals, she ends up on the wrong side of the powerful autocrat. Aidan steps in to rescue her, but secrets from his past threaten to bogey their newfound relationship.

    EXCERPT:

    The beauty looked right at him. She’d no doubt sensed his boat’s arrival. No frown, though her eyes widened almost imperceptibly. If he hadn’t been staring into them, he may not have noticed. Maybe the boat slip was open for rental.

    Aidan knew he turned women’s heads without trying, and mostly it annoyed him. Because the aforementioned women then made a pass at him. He wanted to be the chooser in any hookup. This particular beauty could stare as long as she wanted. Instinct assured him he could still be the chooser here.

    The blonde stole his breath. He wasn’t usually a go-after-blondes guy, except for the brief crush he’d had after meeting Rhett’s wife Lily, though she wasn’t yet Rhett’s when Aidan met her. He could make a second exception for this fresh-faced beauty.

    Her green eyes reminded him of twin emeralds, visible even from here. Eyes that bored into your soul and squeezed at your heart. Despite the desire tugging at his body, his faithful instinct suddenly cried out, This woman will be important to you.

    His little tour guide hopped from a bench to the gunwale with grace and then tiptoed down the narrow ridge to the stern. He couldn’t help but grin at her athleticism and balance. Her eyes never left his, though his may have wandered down to her beautiful tanned legs and back up.

    She stopped dead. Her lips, luscious and a perfect pink, twitched and then stretched into a smile.

    Aidan’s heart threatened mutiny if he didn’t get closer. The woman was gorgeous.

    How rosy could he make those lips with a properly-delivered kiss?

    Aidan heard the whine of an incoming boat. Ignored it. Assumed the craft would scoot to one of the multitude of slips and docks on the other side of the boat ramp. Plus, he refused to take his eyes off his smiling tour guide just yet.

    Assumed, as the saying went, often made an ass of me.

    The large incoming pleasure craft swooped to a blunt landing on the other side of the dock by throwing the powerful engine into reverse to halt forward motion. The subsequent tsunami-sized wake had no such reverse or brake and pitched his boat and the tour vessel up on a roiling crest and back down, sending his green-eyed girl into a dive.

    Headfirst.

    Over the side.

    Grabbing for balance himself, he couldn’t tell if she made a clean entry. He scrabbled toward the bow of his boat.

    One second.

    Two.

    Three.

    Four seconds. Too long.

    The water looked to be six or seven feet deep at low tide. The beauty should have surfaced. He kicked off his shoes and went over the side at the spot where she went down. The fool driver of the errant boat hollered, “Hey!” but Aidan kept going.

    The dark marina water made it hard for him to see her. Aidan went by feel more than sight when he searched. Precious seconds elapsed until his hand felt a sneaker. He tugged the beauty’s motionless body from beneath the darker shadow of the tour boat and bolted for the surface.

    Forcing her head above water, he made a straight shot between the boats and under the dock—only possible, Thank God, due to low tide—and gained his footing at the base of the boat ramp. He swung the girl up and into his arms.

    When he reached shallower water, he angled her front first over his arm. She coughed twice and spit out a couple mouthfuls of seawater. At the top of the ramp, he stepped up onto the dock, then knelt and laid her down prostrate, ready for CPR.

    He put an ear to her chest. Grabbed a limp wrist and felt for a pulse, then heaved a sigh of relief at her slow but steady heart rate. She coughed. He put his ear to her nose and mouth and detected breathing. Shallow, but air in and air out.

    Come on, baby. Open those beautiful green eyes for me.

    “You there!” The late boat arrival glared down at him.

    Aidan ignored the jerk and scooped the unconscious woman into his arms, ready to sprint for the parking lot for a ride or directions to the closest doctor or hospital.

    An arm grabbed Aidan and swung him around. The jerk was tall, only a couple inches shorter than Aidan’s six foot three. Had the look of a football player going to seed with a belly paunch already committing a false start. Dark-haired and glowering . . . a fight picker who now blocked his path. Aidan had no time for this.

    “Don’t you touch her!” Jerk shouted.

    “I’m taking her to the nearest doctor,” Aidan hollered back at him, “and you’re going to tell me where that is.”

    “You’re not taking her anywhere!”

    “That your boat?” Aidan nodded at the newly arrived sleek speedboat just to clarify.

    “Yes. Now leave her alone!” the pompous jackass commanded.

    You don’t know how to drive a boat, you knocked her into the water, and you deserve this!” Aidan planted a foot in the ass’s gut and booted him backward into the marina’s dark water.

    The Sexpert
    JA Huss & Johnathan McClain
    Publication date: July 24th 2018
    Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

    A new standalone romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author, JA Huss, and Actor/Screenwriter, Johnathan McClain.

    EDEN

    I’m just a simple girl who likes dessert. And sexy men. And social media. So starting an anonymous video channel called The Sexpert as a side hustle to make up for my low-paying marketing job at Le Man Magazine seemed like a perfectly sensible career decision. Until we went viral, my boss accused my anonymous personality of stealing his idea, and now my super sexy new boyfriend, Andrew, is out to get me.

    Her. Me. Whatever.

    ANDREW

    I don’t want it to be her. I do not want this… sweet, delicious, shy social media nerd working at my best friend’s magazine to be the face behind those perky cupcakes on the Sexpert channel. I don’t want it to be her… because I like her. A lot. She’s funny, and quirky, and smart, and creative… and… I really, really like her. It just can’t be her.

    But it is.

    And now I have to choose.

    My best friend?

    Or… The Sexpert?

    Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

    EXCERPT:

    Me: bitch we got problems pierce is sexpert

    I didn’t mean it to come out like that but I can’t be bothered with punctuation right now. And anyway, two seconds later my phone buzzes an incoming call from Zoey. I tab accept and whisper, “I’m gonna get fired today.”

    “What the hell are you talking about? What’s that mean? Pierce is Sexpert?”

    “I stole his idea and then he found out and I didn’t mean to do it and now the cute freeway guy is on the case and he’s gonna out me and get me fired! I’m fucked!” I whisper-scream that last part into the phone while I hold it at arm’s length.

    “Eden!” Zoey snaps. “Calm the fuck down and explain! I didn’t understand any of that.”

    But then the stairwell door opens on fifty and two girls—Sara from accounting and Leslie from data entry—start walking up to fifty-one towards me.

    “Hey, girls!” I wave and smile at them, trying to act normal.

    “Hey, Eden!” they chime back together. “Happy Monday!” they say.

    “Happy Monday,” I say back.

    Now I get it. I totally get why people hate it when I say that.

    When they disappear onto fifty-one I go back to the phone. “How… when… Zoey! I think I might’ve stolen this idea from Pierce!”

    “Don’t be ridiculous. I was there when you came up with it. Remember? It was Valentine’s Day two years ago and I was pregnant, and sad, and poor because business was bad and you said, ‘We should be strippers.’ And then I said, ‘I can’t be a stripper because I’m fat.’ And you said, ‘You’re not fat, you’re beautiful.’ And then I said, ‘We need a stupid YouTube series like that dumbass seventeen-year-old who got famous on Ellen! after she made stop-motion movies of Barbie and Ken having sex.’ And you said, ‘We should totally make a ridiculous sex advice channel and we should call ourselves the Sexperts!’ Remember all that?”

    That was how it went down. “I was drunk though, remember? That asshole Matthew dumped me after I put out and I was pissed off. So maybe I accidentally heard Pierce say something about the Sexpert and then I only thought it was my idea?”

    “That’s stupid. Don’t be stupid, Eden. You’re not stupid. You came up with the name! I was there!”

    “Yeah, but we’ve been using Voice Lift to disguise my voice and the goddamned Voice Lift inventor is the cute freeway guy and now Myrtle says he’s on the case and he’s gonna figure out who I am!”

    “Ridiculous!” Zoey yells. “No one is gonna find out who you are, Eden. We don’t even show your face.”

    True.

    I take a deep breath. Maybe I’m just overreacting?

    Publication date: July 15th 2018
    Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

    He says we never had a proper honeymoon.

    So, instead, he’s giving me… a prepper honeymoon?

    Who knew billionaire preppers were a thing?

    I guess I’m about to find out.

    Julia Kent’s New York Times bestselling romantic comedy series continues in Shopping for a CEO’s Honeymoon as Andrew and Amanda settle in to married life… and so much more.

    EXCERPT:

    Amanda

    It’s Monday.

    Our home looks like the set for Extreme Home Makeover, except there’s no bus to move and all of the workmen act like I’m invisible as I wander downstairs after waking up naked in an empty bed.

    I throw on clothes and am down the stairs when I spot my husband.

    “What is going on?” I ask Andrew, who is huddled over blueprints with some guy who looks like he runs a union hall in South Boston. Tight eyes, distrustful look, goatee, and an intensity that makes it clear you want him on your side.

    Andrew breaks away, kisses my cheek, and gives me a saucy half grin. “Just like you wanted. Here we go.”

    “Here we go what? We barely talked about what we wanted!”

    “We did,” he says, suddenly defensive. “In bed,” he whispers.

    “What I want in bed has nothing to do with tile colors and three-season sunrooms!” I say.

    Loudly.

    “The guys aren’t working on anything like that,” he hisses as a few workmen suppress smiles. “We’re putting in new backup systems.”

    “Backups for what?”

    “Power outages. Acts of God. Hurricanes. Bomb cyclones that leave six feet of snow.”

    I snort. “What, no alien contingency plan? Got a blueprint for a universal extraterrestrial language translator in there?”

    Andrew reddens and avoids eye contact.

    I frown. “Andrew?” I grab his arm and pull him aside, his muscles tense. “What are you doing? This isn’t how I envisioned remodeling and spending our honeymoon. For one, we didn’t have sex that second time this morning.”

    He looks at the clock. “It’s only 7:53. Plenty of time for that.” He grabs me at the waist and pulls me close, trying to divert me with a kiss.

    It works.

    “We’ve got the geothermal heat unit figured out, and when we redo the gutter system and the roof, in addition to the solar panels, we’ve got an evaporation system set up for clean water collection. Storage is next,” he says to me.

    “All that in the first hour of work?” I’m stunned.

    “I’m efficient. Two weeks of my focused attention is like five years of a normal human

    being’s time.”

    “Efficient and humble. I love that in a man.”

    “You’d better, because you’re stuck with me forever.”

    “Is that a threat or a promise?”

    I get a pat on the ass in response.

    In Shining Armor
    Blair Babylon
    (Runaway Princess: Flicka, #2)
    Publication date: May 8th 2018
    Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

    Flicka won’t allow herself to be terrified.

    She’s on the run from her cheating, soon-to-be ex-husband Prince Pierre and his Secret Service, and she doesn’t have a passport, credit cards, or money. She needs to get to Paris to talk to her lawyers about divorcing that bastard.

    The only thing standing between her and the cheating prince is Dieter Schwarz, her bodyguard, her protector, and her ex-lover. He’s six feet, four inches of sarcasm, black humor, and rock-hard muscle. A former Swiss mercenary, now he owns and operates Rogue Security—a band of former special operations soldiers, SEALs, hackers, and spies—which will take any dirty covert operation for the right price.

    But her ex’s Secret Service is tracking her, and even Dieter and the Rogues might not be able to keep her safe from her ex.

    And once again, she’s falling in love with Dieter, which might be the most dangerous thing of all.

    Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play

    EXCERPT:

    Specialist Dieter Leo Schwarz, as he calls himself, is sitting in a hardback chair, facing you. The black pants with large pockets he wears bring to mind the blank uniform of a mercenary, or at least a military unit that will deny it’s associated with any nation. His powerful arms are bare below the short sleeves of his black tee shirt, and he’s leaning to brace his forearms on his thighs and clasp his hands between his knees. It’s a supplicant’s position, but you get the feeling that what he wants, you can’t give him.

    He begins, “Have you ever heard the story of the Frog Prince?”

    His next breath is a deep one, in through his nose, and anger sparks in his gray eyes. The sinews in his neck stand out like he might leap to his feet and close the gap between you, and you wonder if you will survive this interview.

    His weapons—guns and knives and a bladed thing you don’t recognize—are piled on a table by his side but within his reach.

    He says, “First, there was an evil sorcerer. There’s always a powerful bad guy in these stories. And there was a prince. Maybe he was a handsome prince back then, before the world scarred and coarsened him.”

    99¢ Ebook Sale and Audiobook Sale

    Description:

    Snowbound. Sounds so romantic, with visions of cuddling before a roaring fire, hot chocolate spiked with brandy, and a secret elopement.

    Wait. What?

    My fiancé’s father won’t stop trying to turn our pending wedding into a three-ring media circus so he can get free publicity for his family’s Fortune 500 company. My mother has decided she’s done with All Things Wedding and asks her teacup Chihuahua for mother-of-the-bride advice.

    They’ve all gone certifiably mad.

    Then the stress from the wedding puts my mother in the hospital, I scream at my future father-in-law in front of a camera crew and the video goes viral, and the romantic wedding that started with Andrew’s grand Pride and Prejudice proposal looks less like Jane Austen and more like Dostoyevsky.

    So what do you do when you’re a fixer and you can’t fix something?

    You give up on it.

    Not on Andrew, silly.

    The wedding.

    Shopping for a CEO’s Wife is the 12th book in Julia Kent’s New York Times bestselling Shopping series. As Shannon and Declan enjoy their newlywed bliss, Andrew’s father wants to exploit Amanda and Andrew’s nuptials, much to Amanda’s chagrin. Can she learn to stand up to her future father-in-law and fight for what’s right? But the real question is: will Spritzy the teacup Chihuahua end up being a flower girl?

    Excerpts

    Bzzz.

     

    Saved by his phone. Andrew scrolls through his texts with a half grin. I know that look. He thinks he won. Won what? I decide on the spot that we weren’t having an argument. Not even a heated discussion. This is what being in a lifelong relationship is all about, right?

     

    Pacing. I have to pace myself when it comes to conflicts, big and small. Especially small. Letting him think he won this one is important. Give an inch.

     

    Take a mile later.

     

    “It’s Dad again,” Andrew says with that mysterious new tone of voice he’s developed. I watch him as he reads his phone, eyes drifting over the screen, hair messy from the skiing earlier. Deep brown eyes narrow as he reacts to whatever his dad said. The muscle between his jaw and ear pokes out with tension as he swallows and swipes on his phone. He blinks rapidly, but his breathing doesn’t speed up.

     

    He’s irritated, but not angry. Annoyed, but not pissed.

     

    I tuck away his reaction in my mental database.

     

    Lately, I find myself watching him with a strange fascination. Openly, obviously, and without hesitation. Andrew doesn’t seem to mind. I know he knows I’m doing it, but so far, he hasn’t questioned me. If he were to ask, I couldn’t tell him why. I don’t know why.

     

    Yet I do it, day in and day out.

     

    “What did he say now?” I ask politely, knowing the answer.

     

    “It’s about the wedding,” Andrew answers, giving me a look that says, Of course. “He insists we need to hold it at Farmington, like Declan’s wedding.”

     

    “Why?”

     

    “His PR team says it’ll get more press. All the major media outlets will station vans there, and the comparisons will generate easier headlines.”

     

    “What does that mean?”

     

    Andrew rolls his eyes. He reaches across my lap and grabs his abandoned coffee mug. The stretch makes his shirt hike up slightly, exposing his waistline, a thin wedge of tanned muscle coming into sight. I catalog it, like I always do these days, and wonder when this will become boring.

     

    “Dad thinks that the press will be more invested if they can sensationalize our wedding ceremony. ‘Will they or won’t they escape?’” Andrew uses one hand to make finger quotes.

     

    “He expects us to be in Declan and Shannon’s shadow on our wedding day?”

     

    “That’s exactly what I said to Dad! Almost word for word. And I told him no. Hell, no.”

     

    “What was his response?”

     

    “That we should ask your mother.”

    FAST RIDE Excerpt

    Copyright © 2018 Michelle Dayton

     She was damn sexy when she was concentrating. Garrett finished laying out a somewhat sneakier strategy for her to follow at work and tried not to laugh when she jotted notes on a cocktail napkin.

    “Text me early next week and let me know how it goes.” Then, impulsively he added, “We could even meet again in person if you need a sounding board.”

    She folded her cocktail-napkin notes and put them in her purse. When she turned to him, her big brown eyes were shining. “I cannot thank you enough. This might actually work.” She bounced a little on her barstool and took a sip of beer. “I’m a little giddy,” she laughed. “I’ve been feeling so awful and hopeless this week, and it feels so good to have a plan of attack.”

    It was inevitable. His dick had been at half-mast for most of their time together tonight, and he went fully hard at “it feels so good” in that low, prim voice. Both his brain and his cock remembered the last time she said that. Vividly.

    Shifting in his seat to ease the discomfort, he just said, “You’re very welcome,” in a voice that had dropped by a half-octave.

    Leave it alone, idiot. They had a good deal going here. She’d actually made a lot of sense when it came to the Melissa situation, and he really believed in the advice he’d given her about work. The electrical current between them was inconvenient, to say the least.

    Besides, she didn’t seem to have the same problem around him. She hadn’t made one flirtatious comment, and she hadn’t made any reference to their night in the motel together.

    Of course, she went and picked that moment to say, “Did you bring the Porsche tonight?”

    Her lips were curved in a coy smile, topped with a too-innocent bat of her lashes. His pulse leaped. She wouldn’t have mentioned the Porsche unless she wanted him to think about last Friday. And she wouldn’t want him to think about last Friday unless…

    “Unfortunately, no,” he answered smoothly, moving his arm on the bar so that it ever-so-lightly rubbed against hers. Her bicep tensed and released quickly, and he heard a quick, excited inhale of breath.

    “I did notice, however, that you appear to be wearing a dress.” Boldly, he let his gaze wander all over her, loving the way she squirmed and squeezed her thighs together.

    “It’s not the same one,” she said, and her voice was definitely sultrier.

    He moved one hand to her warm knee and stared her in the eyes. “No, I took care of that one but good,” he said, smiling at the memory. He’d torn the cheap dress right in half with a single sharp tug. And then he’d pulled her nipples into his mouth, one after the other.

    From her ragged breathing and her heavy-lidded eyes, he knew she was remembering the same moment. “The thing is,” he said, moving his hand higher on her bare leg, “this one looks just as good.”

    Flipped
    Lisa-Marie Cabrelli
    Publication date: April 25th 2018
    Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

    Hazel Black is always in control. That is until a slimy new employee steals her work, gets her fired and ruins her chance at a partnership.

    Not to worry, her nutty mother, Indigo, comes to the rescue with a nutty plan… move to Italy with her and flip a house she’s just inherited under strange and unexplained circumstances. Hazel knows better than to trust any plans of Indigo’s – but what choice does she have? But Italy has secrets and surprises that rock Hazel’s world.

    Dean McLean, rich and famous action hero has developed an embarrassing problem; he faints when anyone points a camera in his direction. Quite an issue for a world famous movie star. When his manager bundles him off to stay with his in-laws in a small Italian mountain village, he can’t get his mind off of his endangered career. But when he meets the beautiful and irresistible Hazel everything he thought he knew turns upside down.

    Will Hazel and Dean find their true home and each other? Or will a web of secrets and betrayal keep them apart?

    If you like the dolce vita, quirky fun characters, and surprising happily ever afters with a dash of intrigue and suspense that will keep you turning pages, you’ll love this fun, romantic romp through Italy.

    Goodreads / Amazon

    EXCERPT:

    Dean reached for a plate from the stack Stefano had brought out and cleared his throat loudly.

    “I was just asking Hazel to take a break tomorrow after all of this stress today and join me for a picnic. You wouldn’t mind, would you, Indigo?”

    Indigo’s head popped up like a meerkat, her gaze sweeping back and forth between them. Hazel shot Dean a dirty look. Getting Indigo involved? That was cheating.

    “Mind? Of course I wouldn’t mind! I can’t imagine Hazel on a picnic, though. You should go, Hay. It will chill you out a bit. Get you grounded with Mother Nature. And don’t wear any shoes. Earthing increases the circulation of your neutrophils.”

    Dean gave Hazel a confused look, and she shrugged. Indigo was beyond explanation.

    They sat down to eat. Stefano took the seat opposite Indigo, and Dean slid in opposite Hazel. Their knees banged together under the table and he gave her another of his vertigo-inducing smiles. Oh, God. She was in trouble.

    “Well?” he asked again.

    “Oh for goodness’ sake, Hazel, go on a picnic!” Indigo said. “Think about your neutrophils.”

    Stefano was nodding vigorously. “Yes, your neutrophils,” he said, having no idea what he was saying.

    “Honestly, Hazel,” Dean said, grinning mischievously, “how could you even contemplate neglecting your neutrophils. You need this picnic.”

    She might regret it but she took a deep breath and plunged. “Okay, I’ll go on the picnic. Now can we shut up about neutrophils and eat this amazing meal?”

    Author Bio:

    Lisa-Marie has a weird accent – it’s kind of English, with some Jersey twang and Scottish slang thrown in. That happens when you’re born in England, move to NJ as a teenager and marry a sexy Scotsman.

    If you like to read breezy, fun books that you can’t put down then she’d love it if you’d read her books and then emailed her with questions, ideas or insults. You can reach her at: lisa@laptoplifelisa.com

    She travels a lot. You’ll find most of her favorite locations popping up in her books. She’s struggling with some serious empty nest syndrome since her daughter flew the nest, which is why she fosters lots of kittens. It doesn’t help much.

    On Monday morning, Jill overslept.

    She set her alarm for seven, but it was seven thirty-five when she finally woke up. As soon as she registered the time, she flew out of bed and ran to the bathroom.

    She hated being late. As much as it annoyed her when other people were late, she hated it even more when it was her.

    She took a three-minute shower, grabbed an outfit that wouldn’t take any effort to pull together—a knee-length A-line dress in a vintage print—and snatched a handful of jewelry that might possibly work with it. She’d barely gotten her shoes on before she was rushing into the kitchen to get some coffee.

    Michelle was at the counter with her laptop as she always was, eating cereal and working. But what surprised Jill was finding that Lucas was up too.

    He didn’t have to work. He didn’t have a schedule. He could still be in bed.

    But there he was, sitting at the counter with a cup of coffee, putzing on his phone. Wearing nothing but a pair of old sweatpants. His hair was mussed, he needed to shave, and he wasn’t wearing a shirt.

    So the first thing Jill saw as she came into the kitchen was a whole lot of gorgeous male back and shoulders and arms.

    She didn’t need to see that this morning.

    She dumped her pile of jewelry on the counter as she poured herself a cup of coffee.

    “Morning,” Lucas said, sounding friendly and casual.

    What was he even doing up this early?

    And why did he have to sound so awake? Awake and masculine. Awake and masculine and sexy.

    First thing on a Monday morning.

    She did her best to suppress a snarl.

    “You’re running late,” Michelle said, without looking up from her laptop. “Did you oversleep?”

    “I don’t want to talk about it.” Jill was trying to drink her coffee and put on her earnings, bracelets, necklace, and rings at the same time.

    Lucas was watching her with laid-back interest in his green eyes.

    She tried not to snarl at him again.

    His eyebrows went up slightly, and she realized she must not have done a good job at the suppression.

    She turned her back to him, reaching into the cupboard for a breakfast bar. She preferred to eat cereal, but she didn’t have time this morning. She kept her back to Lucas as she gulped down more of her coffee.

    “You missed a button.”

    She stiffened, glancing over her shoulder to verify that Lucas had been talking to her. “What?”

    “You missed a button.” He gestured toward her dress. “You want me to get it?”

    “I can get it,” she gritted out, contorting her arms until she could feel which button on the back of her dress was undone. Discovering it, she stretched her shoulders painfully so she could button it.

    When she glanced back over at Lucas, she saw that his mouth was tilted up slightly.

    He was laughing at her. Silently but definitely laughing.

    She didn’t try to hide her snarl this time.

    He didn’t have to be up and dressed and at work by eight in the morning. He didn’t have to sit there in her kitchen, looking smug and gorgeous and amused and irresistibly rumpled when she could barely pull it together.

    What kind of malicious turn of fate had made him her roommate at all?

    When she’d managed her button, she poured more coffee into her cup and took it with her, grabbing her bag on her way out as she left.

    She did remember to mumble out a “See you later,” before she closed the door.

    It was just the first Monday morning of Lucas living in her apartment.

    It was going to be a long six months.

    Shopping for a Billionaire by Julia Kent Blitz

    Shopping for a Billionaire
    Julia Kent
    (Shopping for a Billionaire #1)
    Publication date: June 2nd 2014
    Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance

    When mystery shopper Shannon Jacoby meets billionaire Declan McCormick with her hand down a toilet in the men’s room of one of his stores, it’s love at first flush in this hilarious new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent.




    Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play / Audiobook

    FREE for a limited time only!

    EXCERPT:

    Whoosh! Whoosh! I flush both urinals, then rush over to toilet #1. Whoosh! I stand in front of the stall to #2 and get ready to flush that one.

    I’m in my own little world and let my guard down to ponder the question. I am also exhausted and most definitely not in top form, because I let a few seconds go by before realizing that someone is coming in the bathroom. Out of the corner of my eye I see a business shoe, and that becomes a blur as I scurry into one of the stalls and shut the door.

    Heart pounding, I stare at the dented back of the stall door. Then I look down. Chipped red nail polish peeks up at me from my open-toed navy shoe. Aside from being outed as a transgendered person in here, there’s no plausible reason why any men’s room stall occupant should have red toenails.

    I quickly scramble to perch myself on the toilet, feet planted firmly on either side of the rim, squatting over the open bowl like I am giving birth. Because I am genetically incapable of balance—ever—and as my heart slams against my chest so hard it might as well be playing a djembe, I lean carefully forward with one arm against the back of the stall door, the other clutching my phone.

    The unmistakable sound of a man taking a whizz echoes through the bathroom. I can’t help myself and look through the tiny crack in the door.

    It’s Mr. Sex in a Suit, his back to me. Thank goodness, because if I got a full-frontal shot right now, then how would I answer the “aesthetically pleasing” question from a strictly professional standpoint?

    The tiny bit of shifting I do to peer through the crack makes my right foot slip, and I make a squeaking sound, then lose my grip on my phone as my arm flails.

    Ka-PLUNK!

    You know that sound, right? I know, and you know, that I’ve just dropped my smartphone in the toilet, but he thinks the man—he assumes it’s a man—in here just delivered something the size of a two-hundred-year-old turtle into the toilet.

    I look down. My phone is still glowing, open to the question “Is the bathroom aesthetically pleasing?”

It seems to belong to some commitment-phobic serial dater who’s never made it past four dates (according to the constant notifications he’s getting from his fake dating profile…) And worse? I have a sinking feeling it’s that hot suit-monkey with the arctic grey eyes I just had a run-in with at the airport. Somehow I have to persuade him not to get a new phone until I get back. My whole life is on that phone. It’s only a few days. Surely we can handle it.

    Trystan :

    This is a joke, right? My life could not get more f*cked up. I’m in the middle of selling my company and on my way to a funeral and that hot mess hippie-chick stole my freaking phone. I’m not sure how she convinced me not to immediately walk into a smart phone store and get a new one, but now she’s going to have to play stand in and distract me while I deal with my long-avoided and estranged family. I don’t have my dating apps after all, and frankly she’s pretty funny. And sexy. And why can’t I stop texting her? And now we’re talking. And … look, I’ll admit that I usually run for the hills the morning after, but the morning after phone sex? That’s not really real, right?

    EXCERPT:

    Emmy: I hate my boss.

    Suit Monkey: What happened?

    Emmy: Pitch was cancelled. He knew that but still made me call in. I’m feeling … stabby.

    Suit Monkey: Stabby?

    Emmy: Murderous!

    Suit Monkey: So you texted ME? Great.

    Emmy: Sorry.

    I found myself grinning.

    Suit Monkey: No it’s fine really. It’s nice to know I spring to mind when you’re stirred to great heights of passion. Was just hoping they’d be less murderous and more amorous.

    Emmy: In the middle of the day?

    Suit Monkey: A noon delight? Why not?

    I gasped dramatically in the empty break room and typed double exclamation points of shock and hit send.

    Suit Monkey: I’m kidding. Kind of. Not really. But I bet you’re smiling now. Or at least rolling your eyes.

    Emmy: I am

    Trystan: I’m in a car with my uncle and my cousin going to visit some of the properties I now own. But if I weren’t …

    Emmy: Stop.

    Suit Monkey: Okay.

    Emmy: Is this what we are now?

    Suit Monkey: What?

    Emmy: Phone sex buddies.

    Suit Monkey: Do we have to label it?

    Emmy: You can’t even commit to phone sex? You’re worse off than I thought.

    there too, and he’s watching. He’s like a spy on a mission, always

    He saved me once from drowning. He’s my brother’s best friend and I’ve
    wanted him since I was old enough to know what that means. But for
    him I’ve been off limits, the stakes were too high.

    Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon
    Julia Kent
    Publication date: January 31st 2017
    Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

    He is addicted to his phone and his new role as CEO. I’m addicted to getting some on my own honeymoon.

    One of these things is not like the other.

    I am pretty sure a serial killer’s lair is the only place in the world where I could stash my new husband so he can’t manage the acquisition of our new company.

    And that seems a little drastic.

    But only a little…

    All I want is one week alone with him. Hours in bed, legs tangled together in ecstasy, room service and long walks on the beach in Hawaii.

    Not vying for his kisses around a Bluetooth microphone. The Borg aren’t sexy in real life.

    So I’m taking matters into my own hands and hitting “reboot” on our honeymoon.

    We’re going to a place so remote that no one can find us.

    Not even my mother.

    Shopping for a Billionaire’s Honeymoon is now a full-length book of 150+ pages, with both Shannon and Declan’s points of view. Originally published with only Shannon’s viewpoint, this expanded edition is a result of reader feedback. People wanted to know what Declan was up to – so here you go. This book is meant to be read after Shopping for a Billionaire’s Wife and/or Shopping for a CEO’s Fiancée, but if you read it out of order (or even as a standalone), that’s fine. Shannon and Declan forgive you.

    There is also an audiobook on Whispersync with Zach Webber and Tanya Eby as the voices of Shannon and Declan!

    Only 99¢ for a limited time!

    EXCERPT:

    Shannon

    Let’s do an inventory of this fine day. My day-after-I-got-married day. In Vegas.

    After fleeing my Momzilla mother.

    Today is supposed be Day One of my honeymoon after marrying the billionaire of my dreams.

    (Let’s not count the night before).

    Woke up to the lovely sight of my husband’s tousled dark hair sliding down my torso so he could feast on me for breakfast.

    Had actual breakfast in bed after room service delivered mixed berries, cream, bacon, and maple-soaked carrot-cake french toast, and the best damn coffee on the planet from the coffee chain I now own.

    Made love with my delightful husband in the giant jetted bathtub in our suite. Turns out I’m as bendy as a Cirque du Soleil performer when I need to be. Maybe Mom’s insistence that I attend all those yoga classes she teaches has a silver lining after all.

    Dressed and prepared to hop the corporate jet for Hawaii, kisses interspersed between readying ourselves for the trip. Undressed twice. Dressed twice. Declan insisted I not wear panties for the plane trip.

    “But I’m already a member of the Mile High Club,” I’d protested.

    “Not as a wife.”

    He had a point.

    Panties abandoned.

    Found his brother, my best friend, a former colleague and an Anterdec chauffeur all married to each other.

    Notice something a little different about that last one?

    Yeah. Me too.

    Day One of my honeymoon had promise, but now? Now it’s a little too real.

    We’re on the plane, settling into our seats, and I’m doing my best not to think about my poor best friend and her chaotic mess back at the Anterdec resort where Declan and I just spent nearly a week trying to figure out our entire life.

    Which we did, successfully, to my utter surprise. After fleeing our wedding in a helicopter and lying to my Momzilla mother, we managed to get to Las Vegas, ensconced in a resort on the Vegas Strip that Declan had designed himself as an intern in college. By the time my crazy family caught up to us, we’d steeled ourselves for the inevitable fallout.

    And got so much more than we expected, in more ways than one. We’re married now. Husband and wife.

    That’s really all that matters.

    That, and honeymoon sex.

    Lots and lots and lots of honeymoon sex. It’s my wifely right to walk funny for the next few days.

    And his husbandly duty to make it so.

    Book Blitz: Bad Princess

    Bad Princess
    Julianna Keyes
    Publication date: November 27th 2017
    Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

    Notorious for leaping off roofs, maiming foreign royals, and that twerking incident, Brinley Cantrella of Estau is nobody’s definition of a good princess. She’s fearless and bold, not good and gracious. And after a lifetime of being told she’s unfit to be queen, wearing the crown and helping to usher Estau into a new era is the one dream she’s never dared chase.

    But when her older sister abdicates the throne, all Brinley has to do to inherit the role is not twerk, not maim anybody, and definitely not get caught fooling around topless with Prince Finn, her childhood crush, the only man she’s ever loved…and her sister’s former future husband.

    Finn embodies the definition of good. Tall and handsome, serious and honorable, he always does the right thing—including agreeing to marry his ex’s sister to cover up this latest scandal. Brinley has fallen down stairs, broken teeth and broken bones, but this is the first time her heart has ever been broken. She now has the crown and the prince, and on the surface, life is good—but is being married to a man everyone swears could never love her back good enough?

    Goodreads / Amazon / Barnes & Noble / iBooks / Kobo

    EXCERPT:

    For Brinley, the girl who had spent her life exploring every forbidden nook and cranny, crawling under desks and peering behind paintings, the castle was very much her home. For Elle it had been a jail cell. Her perfect behavior had been that of a model prisoner, biding her time, waiting to break free. And now she had fled and left the world with—

    “Brinley,” King Edric said. He rose from his seat where he waited with her father in the formal sitting room. He buttoned his perfectly tailored jacket and nodded politely. “How lovely to see you again.” The words were polite, but the man himself was cold and impersonal, his pale hair and eyes a visual representation of the permanent frost in his voice.

    “And you,” Brinley replied, extending her hand for him to kiss. No matter the modern ideology of the kingdoms, some traditions never waned. She kept her eyes on his, her crooked smile bright and cheerful, even as she almost died from the effort required not to look at Finn, who stood just behind his father, calmly waiting his turn to greet her.

    Edric finally released her and Finn took his place, taking her hand and pressing his lips to her knuckles. A roaring fire burned brightly behind him, but that was not the thing that made Brinley’s cheeks flush.

    “Princess,” he said formally. Everything Finn did was formal. Everything about him from his carefully coiffed hair and his straight features to the brass buttons on his jacket and the tassels on his epaulets was formal. He was so stiff and handsome, but instead of off-putting Brinley found it incredibly tempting, the way she found the castle’s forbidden secret passageways tempting. She wanted to explore him. She wanted so desperately to see those carefully chiseled features crack a smile when it was not called for, to hear him laugh, curse, moan.

    But even as she wished for it, she knew it would never happen. Elle may not have reciprocated his feelings, but Brinley had little doubt that he had cared deeply for her sister. It was mandated, after all, and Finn was very much a dutiful prince, one who always followed orders and never his heart.

    Love the Wine You’re With
    Brooke E. Wayne
    (Vineyard Pleasures Series, #2)

    SPRINKLE an emotionally unavailable woman, a lovelorn man, and some delicious chemistry into the middle of the holidays then candy coat it with a whole lotta passion when a friends-with-benefits arrangement turns a vacation into an unexpected journey.

    Blanca Grazia, queen of calm, has it all under control. Headstrong. Self-reliant. Determined. She thrives on an intriguing challenge.

    So, when Blanca’s bestie, Maxine Novaline, begs her to distract Maxie’s boyfriend’s cousin while he’s visiting them in Napa Valley, California, Blanca is all about stepping it up for her BFF. Hot French guy? Yes, please.

    All Blanca plans on doing is the—ehem—favor. Then she’ll just friend-zone Julien L’Angevin’s butt all the way back home to France where he belongs.

    … Until that wrecking ball of a man decides to cash in on a favor of his own.

    All Julien wants is another opportunity to see what this wild, pint-sized, fireball of independence is actually made of. Sugar? Spice? Everything nice?

    Counting on Blanca’s wanderlust for worldly adventures, Julien invites her to his home in Champagne for Christmas. A traveling opportunity the American beauty can’t resist.

    So what if they decide to add a little pinch of friends-with-benefits to the mix after they come face to face once more and realize that their physical chemistry can’t be denied?

    Besides, their arrangement is only for one week. Then they’ll be continents apart again, and life will go on. Right?

    LOVE THE WINE YOU’RE WITH is about a young woman bent on staying single while falling in love one scintillating wine tasting at a time.

    Although, Love the Wine You’re With is the second book in the Vineyard Pleasures Series, it can be read as a STANDALONE. The story also plays fair to the other seasons, in addition to Christmastime, so it can be enjoyed all year long.

    Goodreads / Amazon

    EXCERPT:

    They walked in silence as they weaved around tourists of all nationalities. Blanca soaked in the diversity and half-heartedly discerned the different languages she heard in passing, picking up a phrase here and there as the Christmas spirit thrived among the bustling crowd.

    In the distance, Julien leaned against the trunk of his car with his arms folded across his broad pecs. He was dressed in a dark blue cable knit sweater and gray slacks like he’d just come from a semi-formal event even though the sun had only been up for about an hour. He tilted his head to the side, and his blond hair fell in large, unkempt waves covering half of his face. Neither a smile nor a frown played upon his full lips, but the subtle wrinkles at the corner of his eye betrayed his excitement in seeing all of them.

    He looked so beautiful … beautiful and sad.

    Maybe, heartbroken might be a better word.

    Blanca’s footsteps fell into a slower pace as she inspected him. It was one thing to know in the recesses of her memory that she had seen … and touched … and, let’s just come right out and be blunt … licked all of his bits and parts. But it was an entirely other matter when she had him trapped in her iPhone as nothing but an extreme close-up of sea-glass-bleached-by-the-sun eyes with a wicked grin that could seduce her outright. Except that she was impervious to his moves thanks to their lack of continental proximity.

    But, seeing him again face to face sent an unexpected and entirely unwelcome zing of feels to her bits and parts, and an overwhelming urge to turn around and hop the next flight out kicked her in the chest right where she felt the biggest zing of all.

    The gravity of the moment rushed up on all of them as Julien reached out to Chase first. Both men embraced one another, planting kisses on each other’s cheeks and breathing out their condolences over the loss of their grandmother.

    They had grown up together at Julien’s family’s estate. Chase, though American-born, had spent almost all of his summers living in Champagne with Julien and his family, which was just a short walk across the driveway to his grandmother’s home, according to Chase’s explanation during one of their flights.

    Julien pulled back from his cousin and faced Maxie, gripping both her shoulders and tugging her into a stoic kiss that barely grazed her cheek. When he finally turned to Blanca, his expression shifted to a curious eagerness that bordered on desperation, and her pulse decided to skyrocket.

    What the?

    “I am so pleased you’ve come to see me, to see my home. I wish it were under better circumstances.” Julien cupped Blanca’s face with his ice-cold palms and leaned down to kiss her cheek, catching the corner of her mouth causing her breath to hitch out loud.

    As Blanca searched for a reply, Julien turned and opened the trunk and, with Chase’s help, jigsaw puzzled the suitcases and duffel bags into his car while Maxie shuffled Blanca into the back seat with her.

    She crossed one leg over the other and started bouncing it back and forth.

    “Are you okay?” Maxie patted Blanca’s white jeans-clad leg. “You’re going to stab one of these guys in the back with that spiked heel on your boot if you don’t calm down. What gives?”

    “Nothing. Everything. I probably shouldn’t have come.”

    “Why? Julien obviously wants you here. He only asked you every day for the last week if you’re still coming, and you even cancelled appointments for him. You can’t back out now. Besides, it’s Christmas. It’s our duty to spread some joy up in these guys.”

    Spreading definitely leads to joy.

    “I just don’t want him to get the wrong idea. I’m only here to see more of France. I didn’t think—” she lowered her voice to a whisper as Julien and Chase walked around the sides of the car. “I’d ever see him again, or, if I ever did, it would be like a whole year from now at another one of Chase’s parties or after our routine chit-chat eventually lost its steam.”

    “So what? You talk to him all the time. What’s the big deal?”

    “He’s just a friend. I don’t regret fooling around when we met, but I can’t be more than that now.”

    Maxie chuckled and shook her head. “No one’s asking you to.”

    Tell that to my heart.

    Julien and Chase got into the car, slamming their creaky doors and continuing their conversation in French as Julien fired up the engine and pulled away from the airport. Maxie shrugged at Blanca and leaned in, expecting a translation.

    Blanca listened for a seconds, tugging her fingers out of her black leather gloves. “The funeral is tomorrow afternoon with a huge gathering afterward, and it’s going to be packed,” she whispered. “We’re also the last to show up. Almost everyone’s here in the city. They’re, uh, he’s offering, no wait, he said you guys should stay with Chase’s parents at his grandma’s house because of all the drama he caused the last time you three were under one roof.” Hmph. “Which he’s still sorry about,” she added, under her breath. Then, her eyes flew open, and she swatted Julien’s shoulder with her gloves. “Hey, where am I supposed to stay?”

    “With me,” Julien replied, then continued his conversation with Chase.

    “Hellllo? Don’t I have any say in this decision?”

    “You can stay in one of my parents’ guestrooms. I’m sure they won’t mind, but wouldn’t you rather keep me company? You spend all your nights with me on FaceTime as it is.”

    He’s got me there.

    Blanca leaned in and whispered into Maxie’s ear to ensure they couldn’t hear her. “If things get weird staying with Chase’s parents, I’ll fake a meltdown and get us into a hotel, and if Julien gets all grabby hands on me while I’m staying with him, I’ll, eh, I guess I’ll just see how it goes.”

    Damn, I’m weak.

    “Atta girl.”

    “Shut it.”

    Chase twisted around in his seat. “What are you two scheming now?”

    “Nothing,” they both exclaimed at the same time.
