Synopsis
Skyla Overland is proud to work for Overland Insurance, the company founded by her grandfather. She enjoys sharing an apartment with her best friend, Pauline, and is in love with Edmond. Besides one nerve-wracking insurance fraud case in the past, her sheltered life is uneventful and just the way she likes it.

Until one day, everything changes…

Skyla and Troy, the manager at Overland Insurance, are the last ones to leave the office. In the empty parking lot, Troy takes her in his arms. Why would he ruin their easy-going friendship by kissing her, especially since he knows she’s dating Edmond?

Left alone, Skyla hurries to her car, puts on her seatbelt, and glances in her rearview mirror.

The face of a stranger grins at her from the backseat. “How nice to see you again,” he hisses close to her ear.

Regaining consciousness, Skyla finds herself on the backseat of her own car, with her hands tied behind her back.

Is she getting kidnapped? Who is he? And where is he taking her?

 ————————————————————————————————

Excerpt
Chapter 1

A STRANGE SENSATION crawled up Skyla Overland’s spine as she crossed the busy parking lot toward the grocery store. Slightly on edge, she looked from left to right, and then over her shoulder. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary, with cars pulling in and out, and others looking for a spot to park. Shoppers pushed their carts, loaded their groceries, or hurried to the entrance. Everyone went their own way, all bundled up in heavy coats, hats, and scarves. Winter had come early this year. People wanted to finish their shopping and get home as soon as possible, to escape the persistent drizzle and near freezing temperature on this bone chilling and dreary evening.

Skyla shivered and pulled the faux fur-lined hood of her red parka closer around her face. She’d bought the thigh-length, well-insulated coat on a whim three weeks ago, while she still walked around in shorts. It turned out to be a smart decision. They’d gone from summer straight into winter.

At the entrance, she found a shopping cart and walked inside. With Thanksgiving only a few days away, the store was extra crowded. People rushed along with huge shopping lists, wanting to get a head start to avoid long lines with overloaded shopping carts at the last minute. Skyla had a list herself. She’d promised her parents to bring a fruit salad for Thanksgiving and wanted to surprise Edmond with a home-cooked meal tonight. They’d met just before Thanksgiving last year and she wanted to celebrate. She wondered if he remembered.

Her earlier unease forgotten, she melted inside her coat and undid the zipper as she walked through the aisles. After she found the basics, like almond milk, bread, eggs, and garbage bags, she pulled out her cell phone to check her list. Lasagna was one of Edmond’s favorite dishes, especially if she added spinach and mushrooms. It was five-thirty. If she hurried, she could have dinner ready by seven.

As Skyla made her way through the produce department, she noticed a small boy wearing a red Santa hat and a green raincoat. He stood by himself, next to the bags of green and red grapes. His bottom lip trembled, and he had tears in his frightened blue eyes. He seemed lost, searching for a parent.

LOVE ON THE WINTER STEPPES, a stand-alone adult contemporary romance, by Paris Wynters

LOVE ON THE WINTER STEPS by Paris Wynters

About the Book
Title: LOVE ON THE WINTER STEPPES
Author: Paris Wynters
Publisher: Tule Publishing
Release Date: January 5, 2021
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU | Amazon DE | Amazon FR | Amazon IT | Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo | GooglePlay | Tule Publishing

Synopsis
Can a magical day at the Ice Festival melt this career-focused woman’s heart?

Marketing consultant Qara Whitaker loves her job, happily putting in endless hours and working through holidays. But when her grandmother asks that she accompany her on a birthday trip to Mongolia to visit their family, Qara can’t say no. Packing up her laptop, Qara boards the plane—never imagining that a shared cab ride with a stranger will change her life forever.

Hoping to push through writer’s block, author Benjamin Lacoy hops on a plane to Mongolia looking for inspiration. A chance meeting with a beautiful and intelligent woman whose smile ignites his heart leads to them playing tourists. Sparks fly and Ben is feeling far more than inspiration, yet each time he and Qara get close, she’s distracted by work.

Ben is torn; he likes Qara, but he always promised himself he’d never let work come before family and friends like his parents did. Opposites clearly attract, but can they learn to balance work with love in order to build a future together?

 —————————————————————————————

Excerpt #1
Ben Lacoy sprawled across the brown microfiber couch in his Brooklyn apartment as he mindlessly scrolled through apps on his phone, hoping that something, anything, would pop out at him and end his writer’s block. But no matter how many photos of fit people posing on mountaintops he saw or funny quips he read, motivation continued to evade him. Ben tossed his phone aside and glanced over at the desk by the window where his laptop waited. The gleaming blank, white page was like an accusation.

He groaned and flung an arm over his eyes. After the success of his debut novel, which had landed him on the New York Times Best Seller list, Ben’s agent had secured him a six-figure deal on proposal for a new middle grade fantasy series. At the time, he’d been ecstatic. Getting paid big bucks to write a new fantasy series set during winter? What could be bad about that?

He’d realized the answer to that question the day after emailing the signed contract back to his agent. The moment he sat down at his laptop to start, his fingers had hovered over the keyboard, but nothing happened. His brain froze.

Murphy’s law.

Or, more accurately—writer’s block. A full-fledged case that struck out of nowhere. No rhyme, no reason. And worst of all, no words.

Every day, more of the same. Ben sat behind his laptop…waiting for magic that never arrived. He’d hoped tonight would be different, but so far, he’d had zero luck.

So, he did what he usually did. He shrugged it off and reached for the caramel popcorn container on the black-brown IKEA coffee table and shoved a handful into his mouth.

Excerpt #2
“Can I help you with something?”

He turned around with a shrug. “Are you dating him?”

I took a step back, surprised by his question. Tamlin and I were developing a friendship recently but nothing to the point that would allow him to ask this question.

“I’m not sure… How is that your business?” Please tell me you like me, please tell me you’re jealous, anything to let me know you care too.

“It just won’t look very good on you to date a member of the faculty. I don’t want you to have this stigma following you around, that’s all.”

I don’t think he could have managed to make me angrier if he’d tried.

I stood straighter pursing my lips. “Well thank you for your concern, it’s duly noted.” I opened the door – gesturing him out. “But you need to remember you’re not my brother, nor my protector. And right now? You’re barely my friend.”

We walked to me stiffly but instead of going out kicked the door closed. “What if I am?” He growled leaning over me, all menacing but he didn’t raise any fear out of me. No unfortunately what he rose was quite the opposite.

“What’s if you’re what?”

He opened his mouth but closed it again as if he was rethinking his next words. “I’m your friend Fay. I care for you.” He sighed, taking a step back, getting out of my space which disappointed me a bit. “I’m not… good at this.” he finished rather lamely, rubbing the back of his neck.

I sighed, letting go of his irritation. “I take it you’ve got no sister?”

He shook his head. “Only child, my mother died when I was very young.”

Fuck me – Way to kill any annoyance I had against him.

Micaela
Once upon a time, a boy and a girl met and fell in love…

That’s the way my love story began, but unlike the fairy tale, it ended with me standing in the cemetery, watching my prince get lowered into the ground, along with all our dreams. Now he’s gone and I’m lost. Until an impromptu trip to my family’s beach house has me spending time with Ryan.

With his help, I’m learning to live again and make plans for the future. The only problem is, we both know they can’t include him.

So, when our time is up, we do the only thing we can do—go our separate ways.

Ryan
My entire life, I’ve felt like the waves in a raging sea—crashing and breaking, never settling.

Until Micaela stormed in like a hurricane, colliding into my life and my heart. I thought she’d be my destruction, but instead she turned out to be my calm. The more time we spend together, the more life she breathes into both of us. But all too quickly, our time is up and she’s ready to face her future—one I can’t be a part of.

So, I do the impossible and walk away.

But life is crazy, and love knows no bounds. You might’ve thought this is where our story ends, but the truth is… it’s only the beginning.

Excerpt #2
Luke chuckled. “I had no idea we were this similar. I’ll admit I thought that’s exactly who you were until …”

“Until what?”

Luke averted his gaze and stared into his coffee. Had he felt the shift too? “The ball when we actually talked, the real you and me.”

“I thought it was just me who felt the shift.”

“No, I did too. I wouldn’t have invited someone like that to get coffee.”

“No? You hounded me pretty hard to pull off our ball operation.”

“I had to. My parents expect certain things from me too, and to have an offer come from the Rowes, you don’t take no for an answer. They couldn’t go, but what better way for that to be overlooked than for the son to attend the ball. My hands were tied just as much as yours.”

I rolled my eyes. “See, that’s just it. Why does my family have all this power? So what, my father’s company has hundreds of employees and gives money to charities and supports the community? What makes him or us so damn special to act like we are royalty?”

Luke shrugged. “That’s just the way it’s always been.”

“Well, I don’t like it. If someone has that much power, they should be using it to help others. To be genuinely altruistic. This half-and-half nonsense is sickening, and I’m tired of it.”

Luke grinned, flashing his perfect dimple. “Then change it.”

I peered into my hot chocolate and contemplated his proposal. He hadn’t been the first to say that. Riley, Randy, and several people at this point had told me the same thing. What if I did change how others saw the Rowes? What if I changed how things were done? How would people take it, and would they even listen to me?

“Hey, don’t do that,” Luke said.

I peered up to gaze into his perfectly hazel eyes. “Do what?”

“Doubt your power.”

I smiled. “Who says I have any power?”

“You and I both know you do. You’ve shown me glimpses of it this whole time. You just need to decide what you want to do and who you want to be. Otherwise, why kill yourself about your image?”

“True.”

I had to admit he had a point, and I enjoyed our banter. Never in a million years did I think I could have a genuine conversation with Luke Warrington. Maybe his image was just as flawed as mine was.

Roger dropped Luke’s burger and fries on the table. “Would you like anything else, ma’am?”

“I’ll take another hot chocolate if you don’t mind.”

“Sure thing.”

Luke stared at his food, mouthwatering like a dog in a treat store.

“You excited?”

Luke met my gaze. “Was I drooling?”

I laughed. “Just a little.”

“It’s just so good. You must try it.”

I shook my head. “I’m okay. Thanks though.”

“You sure?” he asked as he wiggled his eyebrows.

“Positive.”

He took a huge bite of his burger, and when he pulled away, his chin was slathered in barbeque sauce.

I couldn’t contain the giggles. “You have a little something …”

Luke smirked and dabbed his face with his napkin. “Better?”

I nodded. I could never eat a burger like that. The mess alone would deter me—but his fries, now those looked delicious.

While Luke was midbite, I snatched a fry from his plate and plopped it in my mouth.

He gasped, and his eyes bulged. “Did you just take a fry?”

I quickly chewed and muttered, “Maybe.”

He chuckled. “You did!”

I swallowed the last bit. “It was good though.”

“That’s okay. I’ll share some, but don’t eat ‘em all. I would be too sad to not have my burger and fries.”

I raised my hand and crossed my heart. “I promise.”

Our gazes locked, and I could have sworn my stomach felt fluttery. Maybe I was hungrier than I thought? Because there was no way the flutters had anything to do with Luke.

Synopsis
In Girl on the Ferris Wheel, Julie Halpern and Len Vlahos expertly tackle this quirky and poignant romance that explores what first love really means—and how it sometimes hurts like hell.

Tenth graders Eliana and Dmitri could not be more different. He’s an outgoing, self-confident drummer in a punk band called Unexpected Turbulence. Eliana is introspective and thoughtful, and a movie buff who is living with depression.

Dmitri quite literally falls for Eliana when he sees her in gym class and slams into a classmate. The pair then navigate the ins and outs of first love. Exciting, scary, unexpected, and so much more difficult than they ever imagined. They say opposites attract, but they soon realize that there is so much they just don’t understand about each other. It begs the question: How long can first love possibly last when you’re so different?

 

 

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt #2
Eliana

I don’t think I’ll ever get over the fact that my guidance counselor’s name is Mr. Person. Is that his real name? Would someone who chose the field of guidance counseling give himself an alias? What if he had to? What if Mr. Person is not merely a guidance counselor? By day, he sits in his five foot by five foot, poorly lit office, weaving his schedule-balancing magic. By night? He squeezes his desk-trapped gut into figure-flattering spandex and flies around the city of Minneapolis, valiantly moving people’s cars out of unexpected snow tow zones.

“What brings you here today, Eliana?” Mr. Person knows my name without looking into my file. Mr. Person keeps my file in a special place on his desktop for easy access. This is not my first visit to Mr. Person’s rodeo. (Maybe he’s a rodeo clown?)

“I want to drop out of physics,” I tell him. This sounds as pathetic to me as I feel. “Dropping out” is such an extreme expression, like first it’s physics, and then high school, and then I’m competing with Girl Scouts outside the local Walgreens for spare change. But I don’t have any cookies to sell because I also dropped out of Girl Scouts!

“You don’t like Ms. Keeter?” He assumes. I have left three classes since my freshman year based solely on negative teacher vibe. Not this time. “No, she was fine. She seemed to know what she was doing.”

“Glad to hear that.” Mr. Person barely contains his sarcasm. Let it out, I say. The more the merrier.

“I got a C on a test,” I admit.

He waits for more. I have no more. “So I want to drop out,” I say, hoping that he understands.

“Eliana, a C on a test is hardly reason to drop out of a class. Have you never received a C before?” Mr. Person clicks on his keyboard. A piece of me is bummed he doesn’t have my grades memorized.

“I’m sure I have. At some point.” I pretend I don’t remember the exact test and date (seventh grade, algebra, I had a 103 fever that day and argued for a retest).

“A C is average, Eliana, and it’s just one test. I’m sure you will do even better on the next one. Why don’t you give it another couple of weeks—”

I cut him off. “Mr. Person, it will be midterms in a couple of weeks. I don’t want to do better. I want out. I don’t like physics. I don’t get physics. I won’t use physics. Just get me out of the class.” He looks down at me scoldingly until I add, “Please?”

“You need at least one more science class before you graduate to fulfill your requirements.” He does his keyboard clicking thing again. I am nearly certain he is not looking at my file but playing Words with Friends.

“I’m only a sophomore. I can take an earth science next year. That will be more practical. I live on Earth. For now.” My head takes me to that sweet place where Doctor Who arrives in the TARDIS just outside Mr. Person’s office to whisk me to a far-off planet where I won’t need a guidance counselor to reschedule my day into a slightly more bearable state than it is currently in.

Mr. Person rudely interrupts. “I have another appointment in three minutes, Eliana. Do you really need to leave physics?” Click. Click. Clickety click click.

“Would I be wasting your time, Mr. Person, if I didn’t really need something?” I realize I’m potentially setting myself up for a roasting, but Mr. Person knows this is a battle he will not win. Not without his spandex suit, anyway.

He puffs out a deflated sigh, does his clicking magic, and pres- ents me with this option. “If we don’t want to rearrange your entire schedule, and I really do not want to do that, we need to fill your third period.”

I’m about to spew a truly inappropriate joke about maxi pads when Mr. Person saves me. “Looks like your only two choices are study hall or the Art and Craft of Cinema.”

“I thought that class was filled! I tried to get into that last year.”

“I recall that appointment,” Mr. Person nods, and I flash back to how I completely lost myself and both cried uncontrollably and called Mr. Person a dicktag when he couldn’t make that happen. I guess he would remember that.

“Is there really an opening?”

“Looks like someone dropped out last week. Maybe they gotaC.”

I ignore the guidance counselor sass and relish the rare good fortune. “Can you put me in? Please?” I smile my brightest fake smile at him, which makes no sense because this moment is totally deserving of a real smile, but sometimes my face just can’t make the leap.

Click click and click. “Done. You are now a physics class dropout and a film student. Your future’s looking bright, Eliana.”

I sneer at him in that charming way I have and say, “Thank you, Mr. Person. Your guidance counseling skills are once again top notch.”

“I’ll put that on my tombstone,” he retorts.

I leave the tiny office with a reprinted schedule in hand and a spring in my step. Stuff like this never happens to me. I’m out of physics and in film class? That’s luck. That’s kismet. That’s actu- ally good news.

I stop my bouncy walk.

What terrible crap is going to happen to balance it out?

Synopsis
The flare of a cigarette, the sound of a stranger’s voice, and the handsome Irishman in the shadows–I wanted it all, but I wasn’t allowed to want.

Ronan was danger and beauty, murder and mercy. To me, he was a mystery, but he was also the only man who ever knew me.

In that single stolen moment before I had to give my life to someone else, I imagined myself with him, the man with scars and bruises. The one who knew what hurting meant far more than I did at that time.

Instead I was given to another man, one who broke my soul right along with my bones.

Through it all, there was always that memory of the man in the shadows, the one who said–not in words–that I was strong, that I could endure, that I was more than just a princess in a ballgown.

Now Ronan is the only man who could keep me safe from two warring families that wanted my blood. The spark that started two years ago burned brighter with each touch, each glance, each kiss. He woke me from the nightmare, giving me life with soft touches and sharp words.

Two years ago, Ronan gave me strength, but he took something in return. I never gave him my heart, but hearts like mine are made to be stolen.

 ————————————————————————————–

 Excerpt #3
“Poppy,” he said, and then once we were out of the ballroom he grabbed me by my elbow and pulled me down a darker hallway. I fought him, yanking my arm free, only to have him grab it harder in a grip that would leave a red mark on my skin.

I was an expert in such grips.

But still I kept fighting. If this guy was going to hit me, let him. Let him try and hurt me. There was nothing left of me to hurt.

“Poppy, goddamnit, stop,” he said, and so fast he had a key out. He swiped it through a door, and we were in another room. A dark office with an empty desk. No windows.

All right. Now I was a little scared.

“What are you doing?” I asked, putting my hand over my elbow where he’d grabbed me.

“Did I hurt you?” he asked, watching me touch my skin. God. I not only felt outrageously alone with this man. I felt stupidly naked. This dress was nothing. Where was a suit of armor when you needed it?

I reached behind my back, pressing the doorknob lever, but he was there quick, putting his hand against the door right beside my head, keeping it shut. His breath stirred the small hairs escaping my too-tight bun.

The champagne only gave me so much courage, and I looked, not in his icy blue eyes but at his square chin with its five o’clock shadow. There was a scar there, just beneath his jaw line. It ran a straight line near his ear to nearly the point of his chin. Another jump from a window, I wondered. Or worse. Because Ronan seemed incredibly capable of worse.

“I’m going to ask you again,” I said, my voice only a little shaky. “What are you doing?”

“Giving you a second to catch your breath,” he said.

“Well, I was leaving, so why don’t I just do that?”

He reached over and turned on a small lamp, the golden pool of light illuminated his face. And I’d talked to this man for what? A half hour, total in my life. A half hour over two and a half years. I owed him nothing. I pushed down the lever and pulled open the door.

“You’re making a fool of yourself out there,” he said, and I gasped in outrage, turning to face him.

“Fuck you.”

“It’s the truth. And you know it. You can’t show them how much they’re under your skin.”

“What the hell do you know about anything?”

“I know I’m under your skin.”

Said skin blazed hot and undoubtedly red. Right. This was the expected embarrassment. The humiliation right on cue. The ice cold look on his face melted and what was left was something so much worse. Something horrible.

Pity.

“Don’t,” I spat at him. “Don’t look at me like that.”

“Like what?” he asked.

“Like the rest of them look at me. Like all I am is something to be pitied and whispered about. Something to be used and shuffled around.”

“I’m not—”

I shoved him. My hands against his rock-solid chest, and I shoved him. Hard enough he stepped backwards, and everything ignited in me. Everything. I looked at my hands, surprised they weren’t flames.

He smiled, as if he could see the chemical reaction rippling through my body. And he liked it.

“I’m leaving,” I said. Slightly scared of this. Slightly scared of myself. And him.

“You don’t want to leave,” he said, stepping closer, and the fire in my hands and my chest exploded between my legs. Desire like I’d never felt, like I’d never been allowed to feel fueled by rage and champagne and his Irish accent rippled all the way through me.

“You don’t know a single fucking thing about me,” I snarled.

“I know you don’t want to be pitied. And I know you just got fucked around pretty good up there in front of a thousand people.”

I breathed hard through my nose.

“I think you want to fight,” he said, a breath away from me. If I was another person I’d kiss him. Grab him by the silk lapels of his tux and pull that wicked mouth to mine. But I wasn’t that person, for a million reasons. His eyes assessed me, and the longer I was silent, standing there burning and wretched, the pity came back.

“Or maybe I’m wrong about you,” he said. “You don’t have any fight in you. You are exactly what they made you.” He reached for the door, and I knew he was going to let me go. Whatever test this was, I’d failed. “I’ll make sure you get home.”

I smacked him. I smacked him so hard my hand hurt. It burned and tingled. There was a print of my hand on his skin and that was the first time I’d ever done that, and part of me wanted to be horrified, but deep in my fully rioting soul, I was pleased.

So pleased.

The dark wing of his hair fell down over his eye, and he turned to face me, sweeping it back.

“There you go, Princess,” he said. “That’s what you need.” He smiled at me like he suddenly recognized me as kin. Something long lost. But I felt undone. Incomplete. Something had started, a domino tipping over and setting off a chain reaction. And I needed him to complete it.

Or stop it.

Bursting right out of myself, I grabbed his lapels, pulling us into each other. Our bodies collided and sparked.

And I kissed him.

Author: Jillian Liota
Release Date: March 25, 2019
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Synopsis
“Sometimes, wanting someone just isn’t enough.”

I don’t want to believe those words. Because I’ve never fallen for someone like Fin Callaghan. And I can’t imagine that this feeling isn’t enough.

CARLY.”
To say my first interaction with Fin leaves much to be desired is an understatement. He infuriates me, barely speaks, and glares at me all the time. Not to mention he thinks I’m a mess.

It isn’t in my plans to start to like him. To fall for him. To want something more. But Fin’s past is filled with a pain that makes any kind of us impossible. He can’t seem to figure out what he wants, and truthfully, neither can I.

All I know is that I want more than what he’s willing to give.

FIN.”
All I should be focusing on is my family as we try to sort through the wounds left by our past mistakes. I have more than enough on my plate, have sacrificed too much to fracture my focus. I shouldn’t allow a woman to get in the way. Especially one like Carly Palmer.

She’s different. Wild. A bright burst of color in my world of black and white. Before I know it, she’s all that I want. All I can think about. But it doesn’t matter. I’ve been through betrayal that still singes my skin, eats at my soul.

I won’t allow it to happen again.

Like You Want It is the second book in the Like You Series and is a standalone novel.

Excerpt #2
Sarah lay on her back in the center of the stone circle, her whole body softened by the beers they’d drunk. Beside her, Michael plucked at the grass. The wavering sound of music drifted up from the village, ebbing and flowing as the wind carried the sound toward them. In the lulls, the silence lapped over them, interrupted by the occasional twittering of a bird heading in for the evening. Sarah gazed out across the moors fading now into the late pink glow of evening. She loved the way the light changed as the day went on, highlighting the colors of the heather, the trees, the grass. Maybe before she left she would come up here in the early morning, watch the sun rise over the village. Maybe Michael would come with her.

For the first time in a long time, Sarah felt alive. Away from the confines of Amir’s family and the expectations of her behavior, she could be herself and she was surprised to find that who she was wasn’t who she’d expected. She liked this Sarah.

She played back the events of the evening, relishing again the simple joy of the evening spent with Michael and his family. She pictured Nicki with her hair stuck to her face from hours of non-stop dancing, the smear of dirt on Kate’s cheek where she’d taken a tumble in the sack race. She tried to imagine Claudette climbing into an old potato sack and jumping down the length of a field for fun. Claudette and fun weren’t two things that often went together.

She thought then about flying through the air with Madison and George. That was the thing that was sticking in her chest. In the future life she’d so carefully mapped out, would she ever ride a fairground ride with her children and laugh like she’d laughed tonight? Would Amir ever take her by the hand and give her a piggy back up to a stone circle at the top of a hill? So much about her life with Amir was safe and comfortable, what she’d thought she always wanted. But tonight she had felt the opposite, free and a little reckless, but instead of scaring her, it had felt good.

Could I live this life? she thought. This unstable, scary, wonderful life?

Michael had been quiet for a while and she turned to see if he was mesmerized by the light too. But he wasn’t. He was hunched over, working intently on something in his hands.

“What are you doing?” she asked.

He didn’t respond at first and she wondered if he’d heard her, then he looked up and smiled. It was such a lovely boyish grin and it made her tickle inside.

“I made you a present,” he said, then suddenly looked coy. He held out the thing he’d been so focused on and she saw it was a long thin loop: a daisy chain. She laughed and Michael seemed suddenly embarrassed. He started to put it down, but she leaned forward, ducking her head.

“It’s silly,” he said.

“No. I love it.”

He smiled again and it filled his entire face. She felt the glow of it transmit into her. He leaned in and placed the necklace of flowers around her neck. She arranged it so it fell neatly down the front of her dress. When she looked back up he hadn’t moved. His face was inches from hers and before she could stop herself, she leaned in and kissed him.

Synopsis
She was a distraction. He was a mistake. Now they’re in each others’ way.

Rookie investigator Devyn Foster knows the pain of losing family. It’s what drives her to do what she does – finding the missing and the lost and returning them to their families.

Her latest assignment is no different, finding the computer a whiz who disappeared while working on a mysterious project. Even though his case has gone cold, she won’t let his elderly parents suffer. She will find him and return him back to them.

But that was before the one-night stand that changed everything…

Private Investigator Max Carson has never let anything—or anyone—stop him from getting the job done. So when he’s hired to track down a software program that could change the world, that’s exactly what he’s going to do… until he finds himself in a dead heat with a woman who’s just as determined as he is to get the job done on her own terms.

Now Max has to deal with two problems: how to get Devyn out of the way… and out of his heart.

 ————————————————————————————–

Excerpt #3
Ben Rosenberg
Malibu

After Devyn told me about being chased home, I needed to see she was unharmed and determine if someone exposed her cover.

Heading south on the coastal highway, I wove my way through traffic to the flat I got for her. The building was a monstrous high rise overlooking the marina. The car park was multi-level and I had a key card to enter.

Swapping out her registered license plates for the dealer plates was a brilliant idea. She didn’t want a hire car when she changed flats for the job. Parking next to her, I checked the MINI Cooper’s tire wells for tracking devices and found none.

The lift was steps away and I took it to the top floor. I knocked three times—it was our code. There was movement behind the peephole. Good girl. She waved me inside with an empty wineglass. Devyn coiled her curls into a messy bun and held it in place with a chopstick.

The little spy gave me a brief hug and locked the door behind me. “Can I get you something?”

“The usual,” I replied.

Padding to the kitchen, Devyn put her goblet in the sink and got a bottle of water for me. I twisted off the top and took a few swallows. “So, you had a James Bond chase scene.”

“No. There were no missile-equipped motorcycles or bullet spraying helicopters. But I wish I had a Lotus,” she cracked.

She had circles under her eyes.

“Did you recognize anyone inside it?”

Devyn shook her head. “Not with the blackout windows.”

“When did you notice the automobile?”

“Soon after I left headquarters.”

“Did you recognize the car?”

“No. It was my second day.”

Did someone suspect she was a mole, or was it random?

“Do you think it a stalker?”

She hesitated for a heartbeat, “I don’t know, maybe?”

“Did you spot anyone familiar?”

The little spy fell silent, then she shook her head.

She just lied to me.

I sat next to her on the couch.

The laptop was open on the coffee table and the glasses were on the floor. I picked them up.

“Oh, you used these. May I?”

She gave me a quick nod. I sent the images to my cell phone.

While I sorted through the files, my trainee fidgeted.

The clips began with her orientation class. I had questions about the people she met, some of whom she liked.

I pointed to a man with a plaid shirt and gelled hair. “Who is this? You two are rather friendly.”

The corners of her mouth tilted. “That’s Sam. His office is next door. He’s a brilliant guy, but also a space cadet.”

Her running commentary amused me. The videos included an attractive redhead, a convincing hologram, and people around a conference table.

The day’s clips captured her trip through security. One man was familiar. I pointed to the suited shark in the images. “Who is he?”

“Oh, him? He’s a security guy,” she replied.

Hmmm.

I replayed the clip, then noticed the collection of photos she had of him. Devyn’s cheeks reddened. It was a romantic attraction—the connection was mutual. It would be better if I didn’t comment on it. I could do something about the situation without my protégé’s knowledge.

Despite the temptation, Devyn proved her worth to Leslie while capturing screen images of the computer and a preview of the servers’ contents.

I moved away from the photos. “One last question about the chase. Did you get the license number?”

Devyn sat up straight, reached for her briefcase, and removed a note from the side pocket.

“I forgot all about this,” she said, sheepishly handing it to me.

The note mentioned the make of the automobile and included a plate number. The writing wasn’t hers.

“Well—I darted into a carport…”

When she finished, I wanted to throttle her.

Devyn yawned. “It’s been a long day.”

“Tomorrow, I’ll run down the plate. I’m glad you’re okay.”

I reminded her to engage the deadbolt and secure the jammer.

I walked through the door, closing it behind me.

“Always the mother hen,” she chided.

I didn’t leave until I heard her turn the bolt and flip the latch.

Mother hen? Me?

When I arrived home, I inspected the images, the workplace, her co-worker, and—The Praetorian, a guarded man with a dangerous persona. The way he watched Devyn was worrisome. Heat burned in his eyes when he stared at her. Devyn was not unaffected. He would point his cock elsewhere and leave my beautiful, contrary, protégé, alone.

I looked up a contact number I hadn’t used in years. The person would get my message across to the mercenary.

“Hello,” said the voice on the other end of the phone.

“There’s an overgrown wolf-pup stalking my ward. I believe he’s yours. Call him off.”

Synopsis
Thriller writer Mia Kingsley has been hit with a serious case of writer’s block and she needs a little peace and quiet. A beach front property in Magnolia Sound seemed like the perfect escape and just the change of scenery she needs to get the words flowing again. That is, until her noisy neighbor starts running power tools and blasting music at all hours of the day and night. Before long, the next victim in her story starts to bear an uncanny resemblance to the contractor next door.

Austin Coleman never wanted to come back to Magnolia Sound. But sometimes, life takes an unexpected turn and the only way to get back on your feet is to go home. His plan is to avoid all things connected to his past, and renovating a beach house in the off-season is just the way to do that—there’ll be no neighbors and no distractions. Or so he thought until he almost maims his sexy neighbor with a flying sink. Despite his best efforts, trouble follows everywhere he goes.

At first she wanted to kill him. Now she wants to kiss him. Sometimes you just have to wait and see where the story goes.

My mistakes nearly cost me everything, including my life.

Carter Pope is a rock superstar on the rise. His band Limelight catapulted him into a world of fame and excess. Meeting his soulmate was not in his plan. Neither was having a son at age 19.

When he succumbs to a crippling addiction? It’s all gone in an instant. Now he’ll do anything to redeem himself and reclaim his family.

I got off the merry-go-round to protect my son.

Stunning prima ballerina Lianne Rocks is taking the ballet world by storm. Coveted, worshipped, she has her pick of suitors. But she only has eyes for one man. Guitar superhero, Carter Pope. Caught up in a merry-go-round of addiction and fame.

She leaves to create a stable life for herself and Zane. Her son, the musical prodigy who really needs his dad.

When Carter gets clean, Lianne reluctantly lets him back into their lives. Only so he can reconnect with his son. Little did she know. A restless soul can always be tamed by true love.

Excerpt #2
LIANNE
Carter Pope’s long, black curls flew behind him when he skidded across the stage on his knees, punctuating the end of a guitar solo that ripped the hearts out of the entire sold-out crowd at The Mission. His eyes were squeezed shut, like he’d just had the best orgasm of his life. Sweat shone on his ripped chest, arms and abs, all of which were covered with tattoos ranging from musical scrolls to script to vines. One arm held his guitar away from his body, the other arm remained dramatically raised high in the air, thick leather-studded bracelets enclosed both his wrists. Two crosses hung from chains around his neck, pointing to a happy trail which disappeared into his worn, tattered leather pants.

My mouth watered just looking at him.

My pussy flooded with desire when I saw the distinct bulge of his hard cock.

He’d been pursuing me for months, but I’d held him off. Not because I didn’t want him. Everyone wanted him. He was the sexiest, coolest musician on the club circuit right now. And charming as hell. The thing is? I deserved to be more than a notch on his bedpost. After all, I’d just been promoted from soloist to principal dancer at the Pacific Northwest Ballet.

A ballerina of my stature had options. I had my pick of lovers. Hot, young models. Wealthy older men. Tech geeks. I wanted the budding rock star, and I’d have him. When Carter and I eventually fucked—and we’d fuck, make no mistake—I wanted him to be hooked.

Together, we’d be Seattle royalty.

The rock star and the famous dancer.

I could see it so clearly.

When Limelight finished their set, I positioned myself on a stool in the grimy bar. No need for Carter to think I watched his entire show. The fact I was even here after I’d played coy about whether I was coming or not was enough. With every ounce of willpower I had, I fixed my gaze straight ahead, while I slowly sipped my vodka soda with lime.

Waiting.

Anticipating.

“Aren’t you a vision.” Carter’s hoarse voice was close to my ear, the floral tattoos on his hands visible where they rested on each shoulder. “Have you been here long?”

I smiled, composed myself and leaned back into his embrace. “I caught the last song.”

“Liar,” he whispered, causing my entire body to shiver with anticipation and need.

Turning slightly, I tilted my head up to rub my nose on his scruffy chin. “Prove it.”

In an instant, my barstool was spun around and Carter stepped in between my knees. He clutched my hips, yanking me forward so his still-hard cock rested against my core. Letting me know it was for me. He leaned in close and brushed his lips along my ear and down my neck. “I’m so fucking obsessed with you, Lianne. Please put me out of my misery.”

Before I could reply, his lips found mine. His tongue pressed inside to begin a mating dance with mine, tentatively, then more aggressively. Carter’s hands moved to cup my butt, pulling me tighter to him so he could grind his cock against me as we kissed. I wound my arms around his neck, not caring that he was still sweaty from his performance. No, the opposite. He turned me on like I’d never been turned on before.

Lost in our public make-out, I was startled when a loud round of applause interrupted the moment.

“Fuck yeah, Pope!” Beau Bixby, Limelight’s lead singer clinked his Rainier beer bottle against drummer Siggy Bengstton’s own brewski. “Lianne, you look especially lovely tonight.”

I rolled my eyes and disentangled myself from Carter, smoothing my skirt back over my legs, which were clad in thigh-high black stockings. I wore a simple off-the-shoulder black jersey sweater and black combat boots. My hair was pulled back in a severe ponytail. Topping off my look was a black velvet choker and giant silver hoop earrings.

“After party at our pad?” Limelight’s bass player, Lucas Williams and rhythm guitarist, Frankie Rossini joined us at the bar.

“Fuck yeah,” Carter mumbled, never taking his eyes off me. “Lianne, come with us.”

“I don’t think so, guys.” I picked up my drink from the sticky bar. “I’m not into it.”

Frankie scoffed and walked away, muttering, “Uptight bitch.”

Carter’s eyes bored into mine, challenging me. I stared right back at him, not willing to bend for him or any man. “Come with me,” he mouthed.

I raised an eyebrow. Shook my head.

“We’re outta here, see ya back at the junkyard.” Siggy gave us a middle-finger salute. “Carter, settle up with Gus, yeah?”

“Yeah,” Carter answered, not looking away from me.

I reached under the bar, where my purse was dangling from a broken hook. “Well, Carter. I’m going to head home.”

His tattooed hand traced my hairline. “Stop by the party. Just for half an hour.”

“I don’t think so.”

“Please.” Our eyes remained locked. Carter motioned to the bartender for a pen, and turned my palm over to write down the location of the famous Limelight crash pad. “I just want to talk to you, I promise.”

“Maybe.” I pulled my hand away.

“See you there.” Carter stepped back “I gotta settle up.”

And then he disappeared back into the crowd.

Thirty minutes later, I climbed the dilapidated steps up to the “Junkyard,” which certainly lived up to its name. Old furniture, burned-out cars, and piles of garbage littered the yard. The house itself looked like it would implode from rot and decay at any moment. The porch was soggy. When I reached out to open the door, it swung open.

Carter’s boyish face gleamed with happiness. “You came!”

“I’m here.”

He opened the door wider to let me in and yelled, “Yo, guys! My future wife just arrived.”

Release Date: March 25, 2019
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Synopsis
“Sometimes, wanting someone just isn’t enough.”

I don’t want to believe those words. Because I’ve never fallen for someone like Fin Callaghan. And I can’t imagine that this feeling isn’t enough.

CARLY.”
To say my first interaction with Fin leaves much to be desired is an understatement. He infuriates me, barely speaks, and glares at me all the time. Not to mention he thinks I’m a mess.

It isn’t in my plans to start to like him. To fall for him. To want something more. But Fin’s past is filled with a pain that makes any kind of us impossible. He can’t seem to figure out what he wants, and truthfully, neither can I.

All I know is that I want more than what he’s willing to give.

FIN.”
All I should be focusing on is my family as we try to sort through the wounds left by our past mistakes. I have more than enough on my plate, have sacrificed too much to fracture my focus. I shouldn’t allow a woman to get in the way. Especially one like Carly Palmer.

She’s different. Wild. A bright burst of color in my world of black and white. Before I know it, she’s all that I want. All I can think about. But it doesn’t matter. I’ve been through betrayal that still singes my skin, eats at my soul.

I won’t allow it to happen again.

Like You Want It is the second book in the Like You Series and is a standalone novel.

Synopsis
An against-all-odds & forbidden rockstar romance

After surviving the long and excruciating recruitment process, I thought I would end up working for Madonna or the CIA at the very least. Boy, was I wrong. Even in my wildest dreams I couldn’t have imagined what I was in for. What my heart was in for. I couldn’t have possibly fathomed the lifestyle, the responsibility, how much it would take out of me, the inner battles, and mostly, the emotional whirlwind. I could never have imagined, prepared myself for, or anticipated…

Him.

It was supposed to be a job. Just a temporary job. Just a few months. Just a short stop before the journey I was about to take to follow my dream. It was supposed to be a lot of things…but not this. Little did I know it would be the one event that would shape me, would change me, would bring on such a shift in the balance of my world. Would bring…

Him.

Would bring…

Them. Both. Into my life.

*UNPLUGGED is the first part in a two-part series; it has a cliffhanger-ish ending.

 —————————————————————————————

Excerpt #3
With my teeth sank deep into butter and honey toast, I raise my eyes toward the kitchen door at the sound of heavy steps shuffling my way. I freeze mid-chew when my stare meets the person who just entered through the vast double door. I gape at the six-foot-something man who scratches his bare abs and yawns.

What the what?

Before me, tall, groggy, tattooed, blinking away sleep, stands the Tyler Lee Adams. As in the rocker god, Ty Lee Adams. All glorious, barefoot, and worn jeans, the first button undone. I try to swallow the contents in my mouth and “elegantly” choke. Coughing a couple of times, my hands dart for my teacup. I gulp half of the warm liquid and cough some more. At my salvation attempt, Tyler Lee Adams’ eyes narrow my way. For a few long beats, he just stands there, watching me as I attempt not to die.

“What you doing here?”

“Excuse me?” I cough once more while patting my chest.

“How’d you manage to stick around? Fun is over, babe, you have to leave now.”

“Um . . . ” Wha? I blink.

He produces a hundred-dollar bill from his back pocket and slams it on the table in front of me. “Order a cab, get your stuff, and leave.”

My lips part, and I blink some more. “What? Cab?”

His eyes twitch in annoyance. He shakes his head just as the bulb in my head lights up with last night’s midnight encounter.

He thinks we hooked up!

“Hold on, you think we . . . you and me, we . . . in which universe, exactly?” I snicker and light heat covers my cheeks, a product of the implied subject and, to a greater degree, irritation. His intimidating stare deepens. “Um, sir, believe me, you got it all wrong. I, well, sort of work here.”

Synopsis
ABBY FULLER wants to have a little fun. Sure, she wants a relationship… someday. But for now, a little heat is exactly what the cold weather calls for. Breaking her own rules, she tumbles into bed with a handsome tourist passing through town…only to find him standing in her living room the following day.

JACKSON PAGE is only in town for business. He isn’t expecting a sexy little something with the woman who hits on him at the bar, and he definitely isn’t expecting her to be the younger sister of the friend he’s visiting. Clearly, nothing more can happen between them…no matter how good they are together.

But stolen moments and the magic of the holidays make it seemingly impossible for Abby and Jackson to ignore one very real truth: maybe their one night together could be the start of something more.

A steamy holiday novella set in the Cedar Point series.

 

 ————————————————————————————–

Exclusive Excerpt
“I bet you could bounce a quarter off that ass.”

A snort from my left has me turning to look at my best friend, and I can’t help but grin at the look of complete exasperation on her face.

“What?” I ask, trying to appear as innocent as possible. “It’s true. You know it is.” Then I return my gaze to the absolutely fantabulous buns that caught my eye in the first place. “I mean…just look at it.”

“Thanks, but I’ll pass.”

Rolling my eyes at Briar’s inability to play with me about this, I continue my attempts at persuasion. “Oh, come on. Having your own boyfriend doesn’t mean you can’t objectively objectify someone else. You’re dating, not blind,” I say, nudging her obnoxiously with my elbow.

Briar narrows her eyes and lets out a long sigh, then finally shoots a quick glance in the direction I’ve been blatantly staring at for the past minute or two.

“I’d give it a solid six out of ten,” she finally says.

My eyes widen, and I seriously begin to wonder if we should just end our friendship right now because…what?

“What?” I say, and not quietly. “That is just…completely false. His ass is at least a nine, easy.”

Briar scrunches her nose and gives her head a little shake. “Mmmmm, those buns aren’t for me.”

I look back at the man in question, trying to understand how in the hell we can have such differing opinions.

This guy is built like a linebacker. Tall and muscular and broad in a way that says he can pick a girl up and toss her over his shoulder. I’ve always wondered what something like that would be like, and I bite my lip, enjoying the way he shifts to dig his wallet out of his back pocket.

“You could not be more wrong,” is all I say, finally refocusing all my attention on her. “But I can manage to forgive you, just this once.”

Briar snorts again and takes another sip of her wine.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that her eyes can no longer acknowledge other sexy men considering the fact that she’s finally ditched the old asshat and found the man of her dreams. Now that she’s all swoony in love, even managing to get her to take a look at Sexy Buns Guy should be considered a success in and of itself. Now, she only has eyes for one man.

Micaela
Once upon a time, a boy and a girl met and fell in love…

That’s the way my love story began, but unlike the fairy tale, it ended with me standing in the cemetery, watching my prince get lowered into the ground, along with all our dreams. Now he’s gone and I’m lost. Until an impromptu trip to my family’s beach house has me spending time with Ryan.

With his help, I’m learning to live again and make plans for the future. The only problem is, we both know they can’t include him.

So, when our time is up, we do the only thing we can do—go our separate ways.

Ryan
My entire life, I’ve felt like the waves in a raging sea—crashing and breaking, never settling.

Until Micaela stormed in like a hurricane, colliding into my life and my heart. I thought she’d be my destruction, but instead she turned out to be my calm. The more time we spend together, the more life she breathes into both of us. But all too quickly, our time is up and she’s ready to face her future—one I can’t be a part of.

So, I do the impossible and walk away.

But life is crazy, and love knows no bounds. You might’ve thought this is where our story ends, but the truth is… it’s only the beginning.
